Everything
Ordered for a bridal shower. Arrived on time and very well packaged -minimal wrinkles. Fit well besides a little big in the chest - straps are adjustable. I am 5,2; 120lbs, 32C and wore the size 0 (dress seemed to get tighter as the day/eating went on). May be more flattering on women with a chest to fill it out. I had to wear a sticky bra seeing as it is backless and doesn't give any support in the front. Received a LOT of compliments. Only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was because the fabric seemed a little cheaper than I had expected. Looked nicer/more formal in the photo but it's thin cotton. Butttttt overall, great experience with Rent The Runway and enjoyed this dress!

Super easy shipping, packaging and return. RTR really reduces the hassle of finding a dress.
Wore with a sticky bra. The straps kept falling off my shoulders even with the smaller size. Straps are easily adjusted back to a smaller size. Would love to own the dress-- very fun!

Adorable design, but looks slightly worn and the straps were much too long and kept falling off. I actually changed mid-day, because the straps would t stay on.

I got lots of compliments!
Dress fit perfectly! I wore a sticky bra underneath which helped to fill out the top a bit and keep the straps up. Though the straps still fell occasionally, I wore it for 12 hours and have no complaints. I would rent this dress again!

Airy and comfortable
This dress was so pretty and comfortable. The back is cut very low and makes for a nice surprise :) the straps are a little long and overall I felt the dress was a little bit but not noticeable.

Pretty but odd fit
After reading the reviews from other, I decided to go size 0. This ended to be pretty tight by the waist but was so loose in the bust. This would fit women with bigger bosom. The print and cut is pretty though. Would have been nice to wear for Easter brunch.

Rented this for Easter in Naples Florida. It was perfect for dinner with my family.
The straps are a little loose, but it's not a deal breaker. The dress is adorable. Can dress it up or down. Sexy yet classy.

Seems cheaply made and looked very immature
Thin crispy fabric, and skirt poofs out but has only one layer of tulle. Low back so can't wear bra, but front isn't shapely or supportive enough not to, even if dress is fitted. I tried it on and sent it right back...

Cute dress- straps too long
Completely agree with another reviewer- a size down solves the fact that the straps are entirely too long, but then it's uncomfortable in the waist. The 8 was a bit baggy around my ribs, but I couldn't breathe in a 6, so I belted it. I tried double stick tape, but I always forget that tape doesn't stick to my body haha. Cute dress, I just wish the straps weren't so long. I wore a cardigan to help keep the dress up. Also, I have a smaller bust, so it gapped a bit on the sides. Cute, still wore it, just not quite for me.

Needed a bigger size!
I LOVE this dress & I actually plan on renting it again. However, when I do, it will be in a size 4. Based on the reviews, I went with a size 2 & it was just a little too tight in the wait & bust area. It does run big, as I usually wear a 6, but not as big as some of the reviews made it seem.

Pretty dress for a Caribbean catamaran!
I wore this dress in a size zero on a sunset catamaran cruise at a friend's wedding. The groom even complimented my look! As others have said, the straps are long, but but I didn't have tape and just tightened them as far as they'd go before leaving the hotel-- they lasted fine, I just had to be aware that they didn't slip down my arms. One of the straps seemed to be permanently twisted. Other than that, I really enjoyed wearing this dress and felt it fit well. Thanks to the empire waist, I also enjoyed eating/drinking whatever I wanted all night!

Overall not a great fit
I rented this dress for a daytime wedding and decided not to wear it. The pattern is pretty but the material makes the dress feel pretty average. I'm pretty slender and this dress just didn't sit right on me at all - I had no shape and ended up going with my backup dress. The material is thick enough that a bra wasn't need though, which was nice.

Very pretty dainty dress. If you're at an outdoor summer wedding get a slip or the crinoline will have you scratching in no time. Straps fell only occasionally. Overall I enjoyed it.

Fun style, limited support
The fit of the dress was good, except for the shoulder straps which were too long and kept slipping off. I had them adjusted to the shortest length, but they were stretched out and did not stay put. You can't wear a bra with this dress bc of the low back, so I really needed that shoulder strap support. Also, there is a stiff tulle under the skirt--which gives this dress its fun flare. Overall, I liked the style but wasn't impressed with the support. I wore this dress to an outdoor graduation ceremony.

Looks great with tan skin!
The dress runs large, I had to wear a size down. You can't really wear a bra since your back is completely exposed (very sexy in my opinion!), so I wore cutlets. The straps were constantly falling down and I did have a fear my cutlets would be exposed! I received many compliments and felt sexy wearing it for my girlfriends engagement party!

Perfect for a casual daytime affair!
I wore this dress to a friends baby shower in the middle of summer. The shower was held at a beautiful barn that was open to the elements. This dress was so breathable, and comfortable I couldn't have been happier with my choice! Not to mention, no bra needed! Another hit from RTR!

Cute dress
I wore this dress for a casual, outdoor summer wedding. I am in between a 4 and a 6 and wound up wearing the 4. I also used some fashion tape in between the adjustable straps to keep them from slipping as I read from previous reviews. That worked like a charm. It has an open back and I was able to get away without a bra.

Beautiful dress. Lightweight and perfect for a summer party!
The only thing I didn't love about this dress was the straps. They fit way too loose and fell off of my shoulders. Could be corrected with double-sided tape, but such a pain.

Wore this to the Kentucky Derby and it was the perfect sundress for the event!
I sized down since everyone said the straps kept falling, and I didn't want to worry about that all day. I have a small waist/rib cage so was able to fit into the zero comfortably and it was tight enough on top that you don't have to worry about wearing a bra (thank goodness since it was 85 and sunny!). Love the fit and flare look as it's very flattering, and the low back was really fun. Overall, the dress was perfect for the day, got a lot of compliments since it was different than everyone else's sundresses!

Perfect for a summer wedding!
I wore this to a wedding and received tons of compliments. The dress fit fairly true to size but I am small chested so I wore a size-down. There is a small danger of the straps falling down so just make sure to tighten them properly. The dress is also made of a very light fabric that wrinkles easily so be mindful of doing too much sitting down before arriving.

Beautiful dress, just wish it fit!
The reviews online said that this dress ran large, so I ordered a 6 and an 8 (im usually an 8). I guess I have a larger ribcage because neither dress would zip to the top for me. I loved this dress so much that I would rent it again, but I would end up wearing a 10 so that the low back wasn't so tight at the bottom.

Fun and flirty, but not as fancy as it looks online.
I actually loved how this dress fit, and it would be perfect for a casual outdoor event in the summer... But it's basically a cotton mini sundress with a dramatic low back and some tulle under the skirt for volume. It wasn't right (fancy enough) for the event I was going to, but I would consider renting it again if the right occasion comes along.

I felt like Cinderella in this dress! It's gorgeous and unique!
This dress was a huge hit at my school's homecoming! The fit was very flattering. The adjustable straps were not tight enough so I had to use fashion tape on my shoulders. Also, the zipper on the back was not very secure. I pinned the back of the dress together from the inside just to make sure the dress wouldn't come unzipped. This dress is definitely intended for bigger-chested girls, as there is a lot of extra fabric up top, even in the size 0. I would highly recommend this dress.. It seems a little high maintenance, but it's totally worth it! Xo

Beautiful summer dress
Loved this dress! I read the reviews and came prepared with fabric tape to keep the straps in place, which helped - but mostly just had to make sure I sat/stood up straight with my shoulders back all night! Perfect and lightweight for an outdoor summer wedding - got tons of compliments. Loved the open back too.

Loved this dress for my bridal shower!
The size 6 I ordered was a darker blue and the size 8 was a lighter wash - it looked like it had been worn and washed many more times than the size 6. The size 8 fit better overall so that is what I wore!

Great mix of fun and formal.
I wore this to my nephew's christening and it was great for the summer occasion. The formal look but low cut back was such a good mix of casual fun but still appropriate for church :) I paired it with a thin white belt (which I saw other renters do) and it really added to the overall look. The one downside is that the straps slid down a lot and were too thin for double sided tape. Overall, great rental!

This dress was so beautiful in my engagement photos! Runs large, i wore the 6 instead of the 8:-)
I rented the dress for my engagement photos at the botanical gardens in Florida. I ended up wearing a different dress for most of the photos but I loved this dress so much. I ended up wearing it two more times on my trip. It ran slightly large. I wear an 8 and I ended up wearing the 6. I had zero issues with the straps and LOVED the low back. The only thing I would recommend is wearing granny panties because the tulle under the dress digs into your skin if you're sitting for a long time!

Super cute but straps don't wanna stay up!
Got this as my birthday rental and I loved how cute it is, but as others said the states don't want to stay up! I prepared ahead of time and had some double sided boob tape to stick under them and that did the trick. Even with my larger cup size (38 C) the dress was fine without a bra.

Wore this dress to a baby shower
I personally, was not a fan of this dress. The straps stayed up fine, but if I were to bend over, or not sit with my shoulders very far back, it would expose me. Just sitting in my car, driving to/from the event nearly exposed my entire top half!! Not a good look. I am a 34 C and clearly was not big enough to fill out the top portion of the dress.. even with a sticky bra. I felt very uncomfortable in this dress, and would not recommend it, or wear it again.
