I loved the look but the wiring in the dress wasn't done well

The wiring was loose in this dress and caused wear on the neck line so I was not as happy with it but it didn't ruin my Easter :) it is a beautiful pick but I wish that had been checked

It was super easy and fun to find a great dress

It fits very tight on your natural waist, so order a size up. It fits really well on most body types as well.

The high-low skirt made me feel like a movie star whenever I took a step!

I loved the dress! I decided to wear the smaller size to fit my bust (because I couldn't wear a bra). However, that made the waistline a little tight. There is a wire at the base of the neckline that I had to fix because it fell out of place but then it stayed the rest of the night. The neckline was sexy yet sophisticated and the color was gorgeous. I had so many compliments on this dress! I was sad to give it back.

This is definitely a statement dress! I wore it for engagement photos & got lots of compliments.

This is definitely a statement dress! I wore it for my engagement photos and got SOOO many compliments on it. I'm 5'7" and 135 lbs. and wore the 4R with about 3" wedges and the length was perfect. Both the 4R and 2R fit, but the waist drops low enough to cut into your hips if you have wider hips. So for me, the 4R was more flattering.

I was looking for a simple, inexpensive dress but ended up falling in love with this dress!!

This dress fit beautifully for prom! The small problem I found was that I did not fill out the top area so I did wear a push up bra. I was worried that I would continuously have to fix it the whole but it didn't bother me at all! I loved this dress and it was perfect!

Did not wear

I rented this as a back up dress due to a last minute problem with my backup size. I wasn't sure of it on the website but was so pleasantly surprised when I tried it on! It's so elegant and sassy at the same time, and the pockets are really cool. The chest area was a little strange for me, it kind of made them bumpy, so I maybe wouldn't recommend this if you're bigger than a 34c. I ended up not wearing it because of that. Other than that, really great dress.

:-(

I wasn't able to wear either of the sizes I ordered. The 16 was too drapey and my whole bra was exposed. The 14 wouldn't zip. Also, the zippers were über difficult to work. Avoid this if you are busty or short waisted.

Awesome dress! I received compliments all night!

I ordered a 2 and 4 and the four fit perfectly! I can wear either depending on the brand so fits fairly true to size. The little wire in the front moves around so it can be a little strange...but over all I loved the look. I just wore pasties under it no other bra

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!

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.

This dress was awesome! It was a little tight across my chest (took some finagling and safety pins to make it look okay) but otherwise great! I got compliments all night long. The pockets were very convenient also.

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.

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.
