The dress was very comfortable! I actually wore it to a briday shower during the day and then a wedding at night, and the dress worked for both occasions (I wore a cardigan over it for the shower.) The top was a bit big on me and I had to occasionally pull it up in the back, but I think it was made for bigger busts (I am a 34A). But it really wasn't too big. I loved it!

This dress was super comfortable and I received many compliments on it. It is a fun dress and the color is very vibrant. Purple & grey are my wedding colors so it fit perfectly with my theme. This was my first time using Rent the Runway and I will def be using the service again.

I wore this to my sorority's spring formal, and got so many compliments! Everyone loved the color.

The size in general was okay, but the top was too large as I don't have a lot up there. Thankfully the dress came with fashion tape so I could keep it from slipping, but the proportions were just a little off. I'm a pretty small B cup but wider in the hips so it was definitely too roomy at the top of the dress, but other than that the fit was great. The dress was very comfortable and didn't ride up or anything - the length was just right, about mid-thigh. The color is really pretty, both inside and outside as the pictures show.

I wore this for a summer wedding and absolutely loved it.

The dress was super comfortable and very easy to dance / move around in. I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone!

This dress wrinkles pretty easily so I'd say this is more of a standing-up dress. I wore it out for my birthday and it was a big hit. The color is gorgeous and looks great on light, blond complexions.

I loved the cut of this dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner in Houston, where it was 100 degrees and humid. The fabric was really lightweight so it was very comfortable. Only down side is that it wrinkled quickly. It got pretty wrinkly just on the car ride to the rehearsal, but if that wouldn’t bother you, then I’d definitely recommend the dress.! The cut is flattering for an hourglass shape and the color is beautiful – it’s a deep lavender, which is definitely eye-catching!

I ordered the dress four days (?) prior to the event and it still came on time. Got compliments from photogs and interviewers!

Size worn: 2

Material was light-weight and perfect for the 90-something degree day! It photographed well, which is one of the most important things when being interviewed on a red carpet. The length was great. Easy to walk (and run!) in gracefully.The band on top wasn't constricting. Also, I usually worry about a strapless dress having an elastic band being so tight that my boobs below it jut out funny, but this dress didn't do that :-) The ruffles were ultra feminine. FYI, the dress is a tinge more purple than pink as pictured on the model, but still looked great. Received many compliments, including from the photographers and interviewers.

I wore this dress to one of my bridal showers and received so many compliments! It was very comfortable, but it wrinkles easily. For the most part, it runs true to size. I fall between a 2 and a 4, and in this dress I wore a 2.

This dress was SO comfortable...wore it for a graduation brunch with my boyfriend's family and it was appropriate and beautiful! (that's my dad in the pic) :)

This dress is gorgeous...the color is fantastic. Unfortunately, my dress was delivered without the bow-belt that is shown with it, and it is definitely supposed to come with it. I emailed them immediately and RTR gave me a 25% discount because of the inconvenience. I had also rented another dress (the cotton candy one) and so I was able to use that tie to cinch it, because otherwise it would have just hung and would have been very unflattering. It turned out great and I got a bunch of compliments. Wore it to a graduation lunch for my boyfriend with his family (so it is both daytime and family appropriate). Will post a picture on RTR's fbook page! thanks RTR for remedying my issue!

Fits loosely and the top does not have enough elastic. Was afraid that half the top would fall down. Use of a safety pin helpful.

Very cute dress - better for someone that is larger on the top, smaller on the bottom. I usually wear a 2-4 in dresses, and the 4 was a bit snug from the waist down, so I didn't end up wearing it.

I had originally ordered another dress that never came in the mail, so I called Rent the Runway and they shipped me within 24 hours another dress of my choice. I picked this and had to actually drive to the mail-truck warehouse since my post office had closed. I wore it with a turquoise necklace and tan shoes and instantly found my favorite formal outfit. Dress was a great fit, and the sash around the waist was a bonus. It was snug, lasted the whole night of dancing and moving around, and was a beautiful color. Would rent again!

First time RTR customer. And a happy one!! After much debate, I decided to go with this dress. Ordered a 4 and a 6. Not much difference between the two but decided to go with the 6. Beautiful color and it hides what it needs to hide. ;) perfect length for me as well. Does wrinkle quickly but that didnt really bother me. I did have to watch to make sure my bra strap strap wasn't showing in the back because it wasn't too tight fitting. Received a lot of compliments and when I told them I used RTR, they were surprised and wanted to know the website. Happy customer and will use RTR again. Picture to follow, don't have one as of yet.

this dress is a gorgeous, unique color. the material was thin but felt appropriate for summer. it's kind of hard to tell from this picture, but this has a belt that comes out of the dress and its definitely shapeless without it. I didn't receive the belt when i received this dress, so I was unable to wear it... supposed to be getting credit though. :(

tighter than expected

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I have a very big butt and when I first tried on the dress I was shocked that it was as tight on the bottom as it was. Do not be fooled by the picture. On the model is looks flowy but it is actually very form fitting. If you have a large rearend like myself and usually wear a size 6 or above for that reason I do not recommend this dress, I was surprised that it worked for me. However, this dress is flattering regardless but I definitely would recommend this more for people that have more of a straight and slender body type. The color is beautiful and the ruffle hides everything. Overall I was happy with the dress but next time I will pay more attention to the reviewers that have my body type.

I am usually between a Zero and Two and the Zero fit perfectly. I think the fit gives you a little more leeway with what looks good. The color is GORGEOUS. It really is the prettiest lilac purple color. The scrunchy top was a little weird and I actually ended up tucking it under so it looked like a regular tube top dress (it worked for me) BUT I think wearing it the normal way would have been fine too. Was very happy with this dress.

Very cute but not amazing. I rented this dress for my bachelorette party and got a lot of compliments on it. Fun color, fun dress. My only complaint was that the top elastic pushed down my boobs so the top looked a tad off. Nothing terrible though.

I loved this dress! The fabric is a bit sheer (not too much) and it was a bit short on me. I have a small bust, so i kept having to pull up the elastic top. I paired with similar black T strap heels and silver dangly earrings. I initially rented the dress for a morning wedding but decided against it last minute. I instead wore this dress to the post wedding party.

I rented this dress on a whim, and ended up wearing it out. I loved it. The color was really flattering on my skin tone, and it was a fun dress to wear out to the cocktail party I went to. The elastic top band was strange at first but I got used to it as the night wore on. I definitely recommend renting this, especially if you're petite like myself.

This is a beautiful dress. The color is even more gorgeous in person. However, the minute I saw it I knew it wouldn't fit right. I have a very athletic build, my legs and hips are muscular and pretty big, so the bottom half was a little tighter than I expected, like a lot of other reviewers said. It was still cute, just a little more revealing than I wanted. So be forewarned, my fellow full-hips/thighs/butt women; this one definitely shows all that off!
