I got so many compliments! The color was great, and I loved the front - definitely stood out at prom

There were huge gaps between the chest and the shoulders in both sizes. I had to wear the 8 because my chest was popping out of the 6, lol, but the gaps were even bigger on the 8. I had to pin it in a really awkward way, and the pins came out pretty soon so I just gave up. But otherwise it was great! I needed it on Saturday, and I didn't order it until Wednesday. I got it on Friday, and the packaging was super convenient and cool. The service was amazing, enough to make up for the disappointment of the dress not fitting very well. Definitely will try again with RtR!

Comfortable sexy dress

Rented it for my friends bday, ceremony was outside at 5pm in the spring. Wanted to be comfortable and dance. This dress did that. Kind of tight on the chest so with the right bra it gave me crazy cleavage instead of squeezed boobs

Great dress! Classy and showy; stood out from the crowd. So many compliments!

This dress worked perfectly for prom. It made me feel like a princess and I got a ton of compliments. The color is a beautiful coral, and though I'm not usually a pink girl it complimented my blond hair, blue eyes and skin tone well. The top made my boobs look fantastic, but it was classy enough to send proud pics to mom. Although I was originally worried about how poofy it would be around the hips, and it isn't the most flattering in the belly area, the flair was pretty and the wind caught the skirt perfectly in photos. Where the fit was a bit more of a problem was in the shoulders and straps area--as I am pretty short/petite (not in boob size but more in height) the straps were a bit roomy. It was fine for taking pictures and eating dinner, as I could pull the back down and the front up. When dancing, it slipped down a little and pouched on the sides of the boobs a little, but these were all very minor and not very noticeable. One last note: I used a bra with an extra piece extending the band down made for low back and low cut things which worked really well so it didn't show in the front. Would recommend!

Red carpet ready

Flattering cut for hour glass shaped ladies. The color and quality are superb. I also ordered this super cute pale pink fur vest from Rent The Runway to wear with it. Perfect for a Beverly Hills Fashion Show.

I had to size up to fit my chest but you couldn't tell the dress was a little big. It was very flattering on and I got lots of compliments!

Deep V cut

The dress was pretty but the deep V cut was too low for my both my frame and the formality of the event. Ended up wearing a different dress. Perks to the dress are the pretty pink color and high-low length.

Gala Event! Great dress with the right bra!

This dress was really striking. I wore the 8, I fit into the 6, but it was so tight it made the front look funny. I purchased a special bra and it made everything lie correctly. I don't usually wear so much cleavage but liked this dress, just had to get comfortable with it.

Awesome color

Was tight in the torso (36-27.5-38) but that was good- it held my boobs in place since i couldnt wear a bra. Thick lining- it was HOT. There was a little metal v right in the bust that was clearly supposed to be there to give it structure. But it was detached and hanging off one side. The 8 didnt have it there at all... They must have done what i wound up doing which was removing it all together after we tried and failed to tack it back into place. Didnt affect the dress too much, but those are the little details that make the designer gowns.

Flowed beautifully when I moved

Much deeper of a cut than I anticipated. Could not wear a standard bra. If I would have had stickie cups with me, I think I would have been more comfortable. I went braless. For someone with DDs this never happens but the waist was tight enough that it kept me in place even with dancing. I'm 5'5" and with 3.5 inch heels the back still grazed the floor. This is where the dress shone though. Absolutely stunning with any movement. I got a lot of compliments but wasn't very comfortable.

Beautiful dress. Color is perfect for a summer event, and the high/low hem is gorgeous. It twirls on the dance floor. I got so many compliments and felt gorgeous in this dress. I wore the 14L and I'm 5'7" and 180 pounds.

Such a stunner of a dress!! It was so comfortable and ran a little big for me. Definitely a boob revealing dress that was a little difficult to find a bra that worked.

Show stopper!

Every dress I rent tops the one before it and this dress was no different! Fit perfectly, amazing color, all around gorgeous dress! I will definitely rent this dress again for another formal event! I got a ton of compliments and directed many military ball attendants to rent the runway! Dress is low cut so if you are modest about showing cleavage I would get a different dress. I had no problems with my bra showing like others did. I had to get a long because the regular was not available. The length was fine with my 4" heels.

The customer service I received from Lee in the NY store on 14th Street was stellar.

I had reserved the cobalt blue 14W and 16W because the 18W wasn't available. I had read some reviews that the dress could run large. When I came to pick it up in the store I asked to try all the dresses on. I tried all of them on but the back wasn't wide enough for me in the 16W. Lee Lawrence helped and found a replacement in blush, because cobalt blue was fully booked. He helped facilitate a rush and it arrived in the store the following day. They even Uber rushed it to my job so I wouldn't have to return to the store. The dress was for a benefit concert DIVAS Simply Singing and was a huge hit. I still had a few issues with the top but with the aid of pins it fit and was comfortable to wear. Thanks again to Lee for being so gracious and kind.

Compliments all night!

I'm a size 2 sometimes and a size 4 sometimes. I wasn't sure which size to get so I just got both which is free! The 2 fit perfectly, I just needed to make sure I wore lingerie tape to make sure there weren't any dress malfunctions while at the wedding. Best part was that there were pockets to hold my belongings! Great dress and felt beautiful it in!

Gorgeous despite a few flaws with dress

I'm not sure if this would be true of all the versions of this dress but there was definitely something messed up with the front hem of the one I wore. The lining was too short and pulled a portion of the hem under making one spot look different than the rest. With some ironing I was able to hide it and with that exception think it's an amazing dress. The fit and color are gorgeous.

Stunning dress but noenideal for large chest...

I was obsessed with this dress despite some wardrobe malfunctioms where my cleveage got a bit out of control. Got dozena of compliments all evening. I tried thr 8 and it fit beautifull EXCEPT for the bust - the cut of thebdress had an awkward small bust so 34D didnt look too great. Moved up to a 10 so the waist of thebdress was large but at lwast the girls fit comfortably (still VERY busty).

I felt like a queen.

I was a guest at a wedding held at the Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel in Santa Barbra, CA...so obviously my dress had to be fancy. I heard about this site from the bride! I chose this particular dress because of the style and the fact that it came in my size; the reviews were so true! Everyone rated it very well (who had it in my size) so I felt more comfortable ordering it. Overall, the dress was a hit. The waist line fit perfectly. However, my chest did not fit the dress at all, so we did have to tack it a bit. The dress is a bit low cut, but if you wear the right bra (push up razor back bra - Victoria Secret) then it should fit perfectly. I totally recommend this dress! It was wonderful and I felt great wearing it; especially after all of the compliments.

The color and shape was perfect!

The fit in the waist was perfect! A little snug but once my spanx were in place it was perfect! The top wasn't too low cut but the sides stuck out a bit too much! I took it under my own styling and used a choker so it would fit just right! (Looped it under the straps and fastened!) it looked great and I felt like a princess!! The color is perfect for someone with fair skin and the length was VERY flattering!

This dress is perfection!!!

I wore the dress to a Breast Cancer Gala, it was perfect in every way. I received so many compliments on the fit and color. The plunge neckline took a little time to get used to but with double sided tape it wasn't a problem at all. I absolutely loved it, and would rent again for a different event.

Glamorous at the Gala

My first thought when I took the dress out was-- Oh no, I look like a bridesmaid! I was really unsure of wearing it, because the style is completely different from anything I've ever worn. The size 2 fit perfectly, but I'm a 32DD, so if you have a small chest you probably won't fill it out. It is very low cut as well, so you'll need a deep-plunge bra. Luckily I already owned one! I wore it to a Gala, and felt so glamorous in it. Yes, it has pockets, but I didn't use them for anything. The material is very heavy, which would probably be my only complaint. I was expecting a much lighter feel, but it still looked great. As always, I received many compliments throughout the night... so I ended up loving the dress.

Fun to twirl in AND it has pockets!

I loved this dress! The pockets were an amazing surprise, as I could carry my lipstick and iPhone 6 Plus. It was a blast to dance in and twirl! I'm 5'4 and 125 lbs and have some larger boobs. The only reason I'm giving this dress 4 stars is because it was slightly small in the chest area and gave the "pancake" boob from a side view. The length was great with some heels for me and I'm on the shorter side.

Mexico wedding matron of honor dress.

Needed a fancy yet beachy coral dress for my sisters Mexico wedding. I've ordered off the app many times but waited too long and had to hit up the store. I was so lucky to find this gem. It was absolutely perfect. The Chicago store could not have been more helpful. Another wonderful experience with RTR.

Unforgettable dress

This dress is beautiful. The fabric is wrinkle-free, comfortable and flattering. I got an unbelievable amount of compliments on this dress! The dress does run large and being a 38C, the top was way too big. I have a feeling if I had sized down, it would have been ok. But with a little fabric tape, it worked great for the evening. Without heels it was a bit long in the back for me only being 5'5". I will definitely rent this dress again! The pockets were a major plus

It hung beautifully, even though I was a bit too short for the dress. The dress trailed behind me just a bit, but it wasn't bad and made me feel a bit elegant. Overall, I loved this dress and it made my night spectacular!

Loved this dress!

So I am very tall and have a bigger body all the way around. This dress definitely lets the girls hang out if you know what I mean! I would say the only bad thing about this dress is when you sit down it shows your bra. For me I can't really use the stickers or bras of that type because I am a DD. Other than that the fit and style of this dress is amazing. I got a regular because they didn't have any longs available and I'm happy I did because this dress style was almost better not reaching the ground.

The fit throughout the body was nice but the bust area was a little snug which made my girls feel a little squished but it does say in the description it is good for up to a c cup and I'm a D!! The color is gorgeous!

It has pockets! - very boobish

Very pretty color and dress. I wore it to a gala in the spring. It has pockets, my fave! This dress is super flattering. It is a high and low style, and in the front the high is just high enough to show your shoes but I'm 5'2.5. It is a fairly low cut. It may super revealing if you are on the bigger top size. I am a B and they were out there. My only issue with this particular dress, is a metal "v" that sits in the very front of the cut of the cleavage. It had fallen out, and was dancing inside the liner of the dress all evening. It was visible to people around me. I have to strategically place it towards the back and secure it with a pin so you don't see it.

So many compliments!

This dress is spectacular! Please rent it!!! I loved the length, and cut. I am 5'5"and wore 3 inch heels. The dress grazed the floor brilliantly while I twirled and danced the night away. Also, the pockets were so unbelievably convenient. I didn't even take a bag!!! Lastly, the low cut was sexy, but very classy. I received so many compliments! 💜 The only thing I'd highly recommend is at the very least get a backup size larger than what you usually wear. I'm 5'5", 127lbs, 34-A cup size, athletic build, and fit into a 6. The 4 (my normal size) was definitely too tight.

Drop dead gorgeous

The pictures just don't do this dress justice. It was so beautiful and such a good fit for me. I ended up wearing the 2 because the zipper on the 4 wasn't a hidden one. I made the right choice. This dress is very flowing and such an amazing fabric.

Beautiful quality dress

In initially ordered this dress in the cobalt but a last minute issue prevented RTR from sending my preferred size. They were very helpful in replacing the cobalt dress with 2 other selections that I ultimately did not care for, but additionally overnighted the coral version of the cobalt dress. This dress is very pretty, good solid weight, and felt good on. It was snug enough that I did not feel the need for a bra but it is quite low cut. Also, snugness being a plus while standing was a little uncomfortable to sit in for an extended period but nothing major. I did love this dress and felt beautiful in it.

Wedding Shower

I wore this for my wedding shower. I'm normally a size 4, but ended up wearing a size 6. The original order had a size 2 and 4 and neither fit. In a panic I called customer service and they were able to get me two more sizes before my event. They saved the day!
