This dress made me feel like a princess
Other descriptions said it ran small, so I ordered a size up from what I normally wear. It was a little big, but nothing two bras couldn't fix. I'm small chested, so I'm sure if I was a bit bigger there, it would have fit perfectly.

I wore this for my brothers black-tie wedding <3 it was a head-turning win!
It runs kinda small I am usually a 10 - 12 and the 12 fit me pretty snug ... it looked great even with my curves but the top was very tight... the train was long so I would recommend higher heels if possible... it was such a fun dress to wear ..

Tecianna R., a RTR customer service representative! She assured me that Rent The Runway was for me.
After searching and searching online, I decided to CALL Rent The Runway because I needed to be really sure. Tecianna R. "answered" my call. And Like a BOSS BITCH, she made it happen for me. I was the BELL of the ball! Thank you Tecianna R.! Delivery AND Return shipping was exactly what Tecianna said, FREE. OMG. I cant wait the rent another dress.

Absolutely loved this dress! The top was very fitted, but flattering. Consider sizing up if you are well endowed.

Showstopper! Classy!
I wear a size 2 usually, but had to wear a 6 because I am a D cup, and it is VERY tight up top. However, the right size made this dress amazing.

Made me feel beautiful!! My waist looked slim and the tulle was great.
Read the reviews. It fit tight in the bust but that is good for me because I am small. Be prepared to steam the tulle because it arrives wrinkled. Got tons of compliments.

This night was a black-tie wedding and I was so lucky to have found the perfect dress for it!
I was nervous at first to get a size 2, because I have a larger chest (32DD), so I ordered both the 2R and 4R. Yet, when the dresses came I saw that the 2R, while some might find it tight, was perfect for me because it fit very snug and I didn't have to wear a bra with it. It wasn't extremely tight for me at all, but did stay up the whole night. I rarely had to tug it up, like I do with most strapless dresses. I would definitely recommend!! It makes any girl feel like a princess for the night with its beautiful flowing tulle!

Great dress for a fun party!
I would agree with what the others said on the fit - this dress fits perfectly true to size for smaller chested girls like me. I'm a 34B (sometimes on the cusp of an A) and the 4R fit perfectly on top, but the butt area was slightly tight. It didn't bother me. I got the 6R too just in case and it fit a little better in the butt area, but it was too loose at the top. I was a little bit bummed at how crinkly the dress was, I had it in the shower steaming out for a while and it didn't really help much. I definitely got a brand new 6R which looked flawless (the tulle was perfectly straight and flat) so I was a bit bummed I couldn't fit that.

A winner for a black tie wedding
This dress was gorgeous and I received so many compliments throughout the night. I am glad that I read other reviews and chose a size up, though! The corset was pretty tight.

Wore this to a charity event. I absolutely loved it! It's comfy and light weight! I received so many compliments! It does run small so size up at least 1 maybe 2 sizes.

Very fun dress!
I wore this as my witch costume for Halloween - I got so many compliments on the dress...It fit great, with some looseness around the chest (I'm a 36 D, so smaller chested girls might want to size down if possible!)

Pick this dress!!!
This was by far my favorite dress to wear! I am so upset that I didn't get any pictures of the night and that I'm stuck with the photo you see here - many cocktails in at the end of dancing the night away. It just doesn't do it justice. The fit was perfect. The cut of the dress is amazing and hides any bit of flaws - mine being a post-baby belly that just won't go away. I didn't have to wear a bra, which was amazing because having to tug at a strapless all night is the worst. The puffy skirt part was perfect for dancing and while it was a bit tight, it was never uncomfortable. The only thing negative I have to say is that he wire on the side of the corset was poking out at the top and my underarm ended up getting a small cut. However, that would not stop me from wearing this over and over and over again! Do not miss out on this rental!!!

WOAH SMALL!
If you are not a stick, I would not rent this dress. It is 100% adorable however I am a traditional size 6 and I dont think I would even fit in a 10. RTR was kind enough to refund the money for this rental as it was a backup dress for me when my original dress wasn't shipped on time. However, I was very bummed since I had to wear a casual dress to a wedding since I waited until the last minute to try the dress on. But this is a risk you take. I would recommend always renting two dresses and try it on immediately. I've rented many other times with no issues so I still will again. I believe this dress though needs to be resized.

Order size up if you are D+
Very pretty, would have been fun to wear but the chest was so tight! I managed to zip it up, barely. I normally wear a 4 or 6...shoulda gone with an 8. I'm a 32 F but usually my narrow rib cage allows me to fit in 6's. Def not even close. Order a size or 2 up!!

I loved the dress! It fit well, it was comfortable, and I felt great in it!
It needed to be steamed before wearing, but didn't steam well with a personal steamer that usually works. The bottom looked a bit wrinkly.

I got compliments the WHOLE night on this gown - I did not want to take it off
The dress was a bit tight, but thats what I look for in a strapless gown. I absolutely love this dress and I really wish I owned it. It is so simple and so flattering (as in I ate a three course dinner and still felt itty bitty in this dress). I cannot recommend it enough. I honestly might rent it again for another event (Photo - I am on the far left).

Such a fun dress!
Loved wearing this! It is so pretty and comfortable, and fetched many compliments throughout the evening. Who doesn't love a tutu?? Just be sure you have a way of getting it steamed out before you wear it, as it will likely arrive very wrinkled. It does run a bit small, and there is no stretch in the top (may not be a great choice for larger busted ladies) -- maybe consider going up a size.

Black tie wedding fun!
This dress was SO much fun! Received so many compliments. After reading the reviews, I decided to order my normal size 6, and the 8R for back up. I ended up wearing the 8, and it fit like a glove! I didn't feel like the bodice was too tight, like others suggested, however I'm not super busty. I wore a 3 inch heel and the back tulle just skimmed the floor. However, I will say, shoes with any type of texture might not be the best, as the bottom kept catching on my pump. You could tell this was pretty common as the bottom of the dress definitely looked more worn than the rest of the gown! Overall, beautiful, fun and certainly one of a kind!!!

Carrie Bradshaw would be jealous
Beautiful dress. Received compliments all night on the elegance of this gown. My only two draw backs are the length and stiching on the waist. People were stepping on the back of the gown all night which was a bummer. I am 5"5" and wore 3" heels, but the dress was still too long in the back. The stitching on the waist has a slight curve on one side. I originally thought it was a defect, but the sales associate pointed it out on the stock photos too. Overall I had a magical night in the dress and felt like I was queen of New York City.

Loved the fit of this dress , a nice change on a typical little black dress. Down side the tulle really takes some fluffing to get it to fall right.

The perfect fun flirty flower girl dress
This dress is great! It fit me in the top but the bottom was a little tight but it didn't matter because of all the tule (sp?). The one disappointing thing about the dress is that the way it is shipped you will never be able to get the tule to lay flat. We even took it into the shop where the bride bought her dress and they couldn't help. They actually said the tule started to melt with they tried steaming. In the end we wet the bottom and left it in the bath as people took hot showers. It was better after that but still could have used some more help. Super fun to wear got lots of complements.

I couldn't have loved this dress more! Was tight in the top without much give but the tulle shirt was forgiving and so much fun! I was super sad to send it back! I received so many compliments all night long! A must rent for sure!!!

This dress is AMAZING! I wore heels in he beginning of the night , and instead of being in flip flops or barefoot towards the end of wedding...I put on my motorcycle boots! I am not girly, I never choose the right dresses and I always need help styling myself when getting ready. This dress handled all of those things. I can't stress enough. If you are THINKING about this dress then DO IT NOW!

One of a kind dress!
I usually wear a size 8R dress but ordered a size 10R to be on the safe side. The 8R fit everywhere perfectly but the bust area (I'm a 36D). I wore the 10R and it was great minus being a little bit loose everywhere. I can't tell you how many compliments I received that night! It was such a fantastic feeling, almost like being a princess. I would definitely rent this dress again and I'm so glad I chose this for my cousin's black tie wedding. Definitely size up.

SO FUN!
This dress is such a fun wear! The black is flattering with a nice corset (didn't pinch or poke) and the tulle adds character and oomph. I wore this for a photo shoot and had a blast. It was comfortable (train was just long enough) and added some whimsy to the shoot. Would totally wear this again!
