Lovely dress
I planned to wear this dress to a formal awards banquet. I normally wear a size 6 and ordered up based on reviews. The 6 was way too small and the 8 didn't fit either. I am busty and have a thick waist. The waist on the dress is very fitted and I could not get the dress zipped up all the way. I was so bummed because it would've been the perfect dress for my evening. I had rented a pink statement necklace to go with it and the colors went well together. If it had fit it would've been very flattering. I would try this again, but next time with a bigger size.

Wonderful dress for outdoor wedding!
The high / low skirt was perfect for a formal outdoor wedding. The top was a bit large, so I had to pin the straps down, but otherwise the fit was great.

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!

Love the shape!
Loved the high-low effect of this dress. It was a full skirt but didn't feel heavy bc it was so flowy. I got compliments all night, though I did have some fit issues. Both sizes came with rips in the V neck, probably where the bust was stretched beyond what was intended. The bust was oddly on the small side, in terms of depth, though very wide, and open on the sides. I ended up in the 16 bc the 14 was smashing my boobs. The 16 was a much looser fit, but with some double sided tape, it worked out. It didn't seem to be too low for my comfort, and I was able to wear a regular VS bra with it. Be weary of an overstretched V and definitely get doublesided tape, if you're going to rent.

Rented for my bachelorette in Napa and I felt like the bell of the ball!
The dress fit perfectly however the chest area was a bit odd..it creates a weird line like its too tight but it wasn't pulling like it looked. You had to hoist the ladies up to keep the line from happening which then gives crazy cleavage, however, I never felt like I needed something underneath but it may have helped prevent the weird line thing. There was a little weird v shaped support wire I'm thinking, but it just kept floating around to weird places in the chest area on the dress. the length was perfect (I'm 5 10") and the fabric was structured yet light which made it a perfect fancy summer night dress! Would definitely rent again with the right bra.

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.

Bust area was a bit large, solved the problem with a push-up bra. It was a bit more revealing than I'm use to but it worked. I was still receiving compliments the next day.

Beautiful color...not for large busted women
beautiful dress!!On the model it looks like it won't be that revealing...caution to large busted women- it is!! I almost wore a cami underneath it but it looked ridiculous- instead I wound up pinning up the straps so it was a little bit less immodest. Overall it was GORGEOUS and i loved the way it moved. If it wasn't for the bust area I would TOTALLY rent this dress again.

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.

Fun dancing dress!
This dress was AWESOME! The cut was very flattering and you could wear a regular bra with it- felt it was true to size. It was very comfortable and fun dance in. I'm 6 feet tall and ordered the long version and definitely needed to wear heels with it. I received tons of compliments. This was probably one of my favorite RTR dresses so far!

Flattering dress in a great color!
This dress was amazing, it was for my boyfriends cousin's wedding up on the Cape and I got so many compliments. The pockets were amazing! I wore the 10L and with wearing 3" heels it didn't come close to touching the floor, heads up if you're tall want a dress that goes to the floor. It was comfortable and flattering, and helped to hid some extra weight I had put on along my waistline. You'll need to wear a nubra and get some fashion tape, but besides that it was super easy to wear!

Great bridesmaids dress
Wore this as a bridesmaid for an outdoor wedding. Great soft coral color and fairytale style. It's a lot of dress though, way too long for being 5'2". I had to carry the train all day. I wore the 0R and the waist was too tight but everything else was too big. Had to use fashion tape to keep it in place. Get a deep plunge bra. Was great for this spring wedding, but would be hot for a summer wedding. Even still, got lots of compliments.

Cut, color, the way it moves... all A+... and so many compliments.
It has a very low V so be sure you're ok to go with out much support. I basically wore bra cup stickies. But for a small chested lady like me, it was perfect.

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.

Dress not worn
I usually can get away with a dress in a size 6 or 4 depending but I should have gone with a size 8 for this dress. I could not get the zipper past my ribs and it has no give. Had it fit, I think I really would have loved the cut and fit. The bottom does have a lot of fabric but I expected that from the picture.

This dress made me feel like Marilyn Monroe. It flows beautifully. So many compliments!
Be sure to wear the right bra with this dress! Fits snug at bust but the bra needs to have a low cut.

Most amazing dress I've ever worn! I got endless compliments, it fit perfectly, and was so fun.
Great for smaller waists and smaller boobs. Made my boobs pop a bit which is a rare experience for me. I was worried since I'm 5' 4" it would be too long but with tall heels it was perfect.

feminine, beautiful color and flow!
This dress was beautiful. I only said it ran large because I had to order a larger than expected size and my bust is nowhere close to a size 18, so I had to make a few adjustments. Other than that, this dress was a huge hit for me and I received many compliments! It turned out that everyone else at this wedding wore dark colored dresses so I really stood out. The drape was perfect in the back - I'm 5'4" and wore pumps almost exactly like in the photo online, ~4" heels, and it barely trailed the ground. The pockets were great too. The neckline was a deep plunge but not too revealing. I swung it without a bra :) The waistline was super flattering - really made me look like an hourglass when I am 100% an apple shape! I would definitely recommend this dress and would rent it again in a heartbeat!!

This dress is a showstopper! I probably got a hundred compliments on it!
This dress runs true to size. As everyone has said, it is low cut. I wore this to my sons wedding, so I got a bandeau and wore under it so I wouldn't have to worry about my girls all night. The shoulders were a little big Kama so I pin them and they were fine. The length was fine with my 3 inch heels. I am 5' 4. And the fact that it had pockets is a bonus! I loved this dress so much that I am renting the cobalt blue one for an event coming up in Seattle.

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.

This dress was in a word...magical! SO fun to wear because I felt like 'the bell of the BALL!
The train on this dress is stunning...I am 5'6 & had read where many that were 5'9 and 5'10 felt that it was perfect (with the TALL) so I went with the regular sized 5'7 & I wish I would have gotten the longer train because with a 3 inch heel it would've been perfect otherwise the dress was absolutely precious and sexy yet classy and I had so many compliments throughout the night ! Wish I owned this dress!!!

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.

Beautiful nightmare!
This dress was absolutely stunning; the color was spot on, the quality was great, it fit true to size (length was perfect), the pockets were a wonderful bonus and the skirt was a blast to dance in. That being said- the top of this dress was an absolute nightmare! The deep neckline was definitely not for me. I was self-conscious of my chest the entire night; constantly checking to make sure nothing was exposed. It looked awkward in any picture where I wasn't standing completely erect with perfect posture. Overall, I would not rent this dress again and was even contemplating changing into my back-up dress halfway through the night because I was so annoyed.

Dress perfect for busty ladies, and it has freaking pockets.
Yup! It has pockets - that's amazing. This dress is made for the bustier ladies among us. Don't be fooled if you have a pear shape like me. You're gonna need fashion tape (and lots of it) to keep it all together.
