Not a fan of this dress-for the money that I had paid the condition of the dress was unacceptable

The fit is true to size. However the underneath of the dress is not long enough at all!! You bend down and everyone can see everything!! Not what I had expected at all...probably why I was very disappointed in my first Rtr experience & didn't wear the dress

The tulle is perfect. This dress is cute. Got so many compliments.

I wore this dress for prom and i got so many compliments from my friends and my boyfriend is absolutely love it. I actually read the reviews and people said that I should get bigger one size but this doesn't work, this dress true to size for me. People please don't wear bra, this dress is not made to wear with bra. And the customer service was amazing, they sent me 2 more dress to one the next day after I called them. Love them so much that's why I gave this 5 stars, one star bonus for the service. Some dress is ivory and some white so... The tulle is wonderful, you could not go wrong with it. I put the belt on because I like some girls wore it with the belt. The back of the dress size 0 have the hole which is the only one thing that I hate from this dress. The dress is comfortable. I wore it to dance all night.

Bachelorette party perfection!!

I read the reviews and ordered a size up and I'm glad I did. I'm 5'5 and normally wear a size 6 dress but ordered the 8 and it was pretty perfect. The only problem was the top, it seemed a bit stretched out and I had to be careful with a bit of gapping. Otherwise, it was great and I got so many compliments!!

Second wedding reception dress- perfect!

I ordered a 8R and 10R (I'm usually a 6-8). The 6 wouldn't even zip and barely covered my butt! Unfortunately the 10 was a bit large but it was my only choice. It still looked gorgeous and I got compliments all night. It was absolutely perfect for a 2nd reception, just enough formality. Excellent RTR service as always!

Wore this dress at my Batchlorette party and it was perfect! I am keeping it to wear at my reception

Runs very small. I am 135 with 32/34DD boobs and I couldn't zip the 2 or 4 (which is what I normally wear) but the 6 fit great! Thankfully the Rent the Runway staff was amazing and went above and beyond to get the perfect fit!

It was a panicked moment to get ANYTHING to wear from RTR for my wedding! My order wasn't sent.

I couldn't zip my bust into the 0, but the 2 was large everywhere. I HAD to wear it, since my original order didn't ship FOR MY WEDDING! Yikes. This was a back up, and it had to do...

Ruined my bridal shower weekend

Love love loved this dress but it runs really small! The description says "comfortable room for hips" which is extremely misleading (and the reason I reserved the size I did). I would go at least a size (maybe 2) up if you are renting this dress. It is a really pretty dress, however, and I was absolutely heartbroken I couldn't wear it for my bridal shower as I had planned. I was pleased that RTR could give me a credit, but it doesn't make up for the disappointment (and inconvenience) of having to go out and buy a dress I only sort of liked for my shower.

The dress itself was super chic and great quality, but I was unable to wear due to awkward fit.

The slip underneath is super tight with no stretch. Very uncomfortable. Plus, you can see through the tool. The slip is too short, especially being that the dress is see through.

It was a great experience

I loved this dress! I am 5'8 140 lbs and 34dd , the 6L was tight but the 8L fell off of me. I wore it for my reception after my first dance because my wedding dress was so heavy. This dress was a hit! It was very sexy and so much fun to dance in.

Fits true to size but was not the most comfortable dress. I wore for a short period of time during our engagement shoot. It felt very ethereal.

Amazing wedding reception dress!

I wore this dress to my wedding reception because I wore my grandma's 63 year old dress from 1952 for the ceremony and I didn't want to ruin it dancing the night away. I typically wear a size 4, but after reading the reviews I just ordered a 6R and it fit perfectly. It was very comfortable for dancing the night away with my husband and friends, as well as going out after! I definitely recommend this dress! It's very flattering and fun!

Princess dress

I rented this dress for a holiday party - I wanted to do something different so I figured a winter white princess dress would be perfect. The bust and the hips on this dress run really small. The underskirt is also laughably short - it didn't even cover my booty! So I purchased a nude slip and wore it over the underskirt. It did the job and I don't think anyone could tell. I was happy with my overall look but did not love the dress due to fit issues.

Best engagement photo shoot ever!

The dress fit snugly, but what I expected from the reviews. It had lots of movement and was amazing for the photos. It was like a trial run for our actual wedding and I could not be any happier with how it turned out. It was the old Hollywood glamor that we were looking for, and this dress was exactly that. You can see your legs through some of the layers, but I felt like that was a plus.

I normally wear size 4&6 depends on the designer. Ordered size 6L, it's really small, can't zip all the way up. Also the dress is very clean but definitely looks like it has been worn lots of times.

I wore this dress for my own wedding...it was perfect.

The dress was true to size. It does not stretch at all. I have a large chest, a short torso., and long legs. The underskirt is SUPER short, but the layers of tulle provide coverage that was perfect for a party and decent for a church wedding.

The fit was perfect. I folded the back into a "v" to give it a little flair :) this dress was perfect for my engagement photos. I wanted a fun and fluffy dress that was different from my actual wedding dress!

FELT LIKE A PRINCESS, VERY DIFFERENT LOOK

I loved this dress. Usually wear size 2, but read it runs small so rebted size 4 and 6 (just in case).... RUNS VERY SMALL! Ended up with size 6, zipper not so strong I added a button as I was afraid it will open.... Perfect length, loved the dress... Awkard fit in the back where the zipper meets the tulle but got over it moved a lot barely noticed. NO ONE HAD A DRESS LIKE THIS, so that made up for the imperfections. Just had a baby so BEWARE: TIGHT ON BUST, THIGH ON HIPS. If you have too much of both, GO TWO EXTRA SIZES. Second rental so far, this week another rental coming and happy. So manu events I get to look awesome and spend 1/8 of my usuall dress expenses. Yei!

Perfect dress for wedding reception once the party started!

Order up as it does run a bit tight in the bust and in the lining underneath the tulle.

This dress was so perfect! I rented it for my rehearsal dinner and I got so many compliments.

Just walking down the street people would compliment this dress. I usually wear a size 0 or 2, the 2 fit but I have a large chest and it smashed me too much and I went up to the 4 and was fine! I'm pretty short also but the length was great with heels.

Beautiful wedding reception gown

I read the reviews saying to size up and I ended up sizing up too much. I usually wear a 0 or 2 depending on the designer so I decided to order the 4 and 6 as back up. The 6 basically just fell right off and the 4 was loose but I decided to wear anyway. I've tried on the 0 and couldn't zip it up because it was too small. I still loved the dress, though. It was light and airy so I was able to move around and dance a lot during the reception, but it was dramatic enough with the tulle layers that I still stood out as the bride. I've actually randomly seen pictures of friend's of friends weddings and they've rented this same gown. I guess that would be the one down side, this dress seems to be very popular for wedding events (reception dress, engagement photos, etc). I hope rent the runway will start to offer more dresses for this category because this is so much more affordable that renting from wedding boutiques.

Beautiful and romantic

I rented this dress for a photo shoot I styled. It was a bit tight in the bust, but lovely. I would point out that the color was NOT true cream. It had a slight blue/green tinge to it.

Perfect for my engagement shoot! Made me fashionable and beautiful!

I LOVED this dress. The top was slightly large (the 8 wasn't available), but I did a quick safety pin on the sides and paired it with an open cardigan. Had a slight mishap with the zipper, which was my fault (didn't realize it hooked below the tulle), and the tulle in the back got caught on my heel a few times (life of a shorter girl). Other than that, it was perfect for our engagement shoot. I received so many compliments and even got a shout out from our photographer on her blog! I would definitely recommend.

The service was awesome, dressed showed up in time and was beautiful!

This dress was awesome!!! Felt like a princess the whole night. Any piece of jewelry matched with it as well. I'm not super confident in my midsection and I would recommend this dress for anyone else who isn't as well, hides it well. Wish I could buy it! Cons: wish I would have gotten a long. The skirt underneath was very very very short and I had to keep pulling it down so my butt didn't show. A piece of boneing also poked me in the side all night. I put tape over it but eventually it continued to poke.

This dress was fun! A good mix up for what I was using it for.

I got the only size option that was available for my date which was a 6L. The 6 was too big but for what I was doing that wasn't an issue. I definitely am glad I got the long. The dress would have shown my tush otherwise!! I didn't realize you could see the dress through the tulle at first. But if you're worried about the dress part being short then get the long. Fun dress.

Lots of "you look like a princess!" Comments

Overall this dress was a fun pick for my Paris themed bridal shower. I should've gotten a smaller size, as the 8 was too large in the chest, which is incredibly rare for me since I am a double D. The rest of the body was slimmer fit, but I have narrow hips so the fit throughout was comfortable. The Long was short on me, but it didn't pose any issues with all the layers of tool.

Loved it!

The top fit perfectly but the sheath does not cover very much and if you have any sort of butt, it will be tight. There was also some boning in the top poking out so had to Dr it up a little so it wouldn't keep stabbing me. Overall I loved the dress. It gave me the look I was going for in my engagement photos.

A Rehearsal Dinner Must!!

I rented this beautiful sexy adult tutu for my rehearsal dinner. It was the best and a fashion kill shot. Dress has NO stretch so it just fitting helped keep my girls in. I'm a 36 D, 5'7 and a size 8. The tutu part is just enough....u won't look like a weirdo.

Tight in the bust, didn't need to wear a bra. Felt like a ballerina and was so light compared to my wedding gown which made it perfect for the after party. Would highly recommend!

Engagement Photo Shoot PERFECT!!

I rented this dress for my engagement photo shoot on the beach. I had an idea in my head and his dress made that idea come to life!! I ordered my regular size 4 (135lbs, 34C for reference) and a back up size 6. Both were too small!! I called RTR & they overnighted me the next size up which fit PERFECTLY! So I would definitely recommend going up 2 sizes! It's the lining in the bottom that is very tight, especially for girls with hips and thighs like me!

Perfect dress for my wedding reception!

I rented this as a backup dress in case I got tired in my wedding gown, and I'm really happy I did! It was much easier to dance in than my other dress, but still had that bridal feel. The zipper is a little hard to close. I usually wear a size 2, but I ordered sizes 4R and 6R based on the reviews. The 4 was perfect (6 was way too big), and I think I probably could've worn the 2R if I had ordered it.

Picture perfect

My daughter used this dress for her graduation pictures. I ordered the size 6 and the 8 since I had read that it runs small. The size 6 would not even zip up! It fit tight on my size 2 kid! The size 8 was a little loose on the chest since it is not her actual size. Size up for a better fit. Pictures came out beautiful and she felt like a princess all day!
