This dress is absolutely beautiful. My guests said I could get married in it.
I wore this for my Bridal Shower and it was perfect. I only gave it 4 stars because it does run a little big, especially in the top. I wore the 2, but I definitely could have worn a 0 (I just didn't rent a 0 because I am never a size 0 in a dress).

This was a backup dress that I did not end up wearing. I was going to a charity boat cruise and it was not formal enough. It was a too large and was too long for my height. It's a really nice dress and better for an engagement party or a less formal summer event.

Beautiful dress for my rehearsal!
This dress was perfect for my wedding rehearsal! I typically wear a size 4, but even the two was large. Had I known just how large the dress ran, I would have ordered a size 0 and worn that. Other than that, very comfortable and beautiful!

Wedding Shower
I wore this to my wedding shower. It was a little big for a two on top (I just wore an extra padded bra), but otherwise it's really cute. The fabric is more ivory in person than in photos, but I wore it with black accessories, so it didn't matter.

It arrived just in time and everyone said I looked beautiful!
I actually got this dress for my bridal shower. At the time of ordering it I was weighing a bit more and I hadnt realized I had lost so much when I recieved it because it was pretty loose. But thanks to the bridemaids they popped a large saftey pin to keep it from slipping all night A size 4 would have been perfect. It was a beautiful ivory shade and I felt so pretty in it. Besides it slipping off all the time I loved it haha, but that part was my fault. Oh well the wedding dress well just fit nicer! ;]

Hey, love the Anna Sui dress you wore for your bridal shower! I am also thinking of renting this dress for my shower and we are pretty comparable in height/bust/weight/size so I wanted to see if I could ask you a few questions. 1. I'm 5'2. so I'm concerned about length. Where did the dress come down to on you? 2. I have an issue with my top being smaller than my bottom (I'm more pear shaped). Do you think this would be an issue? Is it very fitted through the hips?

Super cute
I wore this for my bridal shower and got tons of compliments. My mom asked me if I could buy it from the website cause it looked so good! Runs really large. I'm almost always a 10 and usually would order a 12 as a back-up just in case. But because of the comments I ordered an 8 as a back up and thank god I did because the 10 was huge. The 8 fit perfectly (was even slighly on the loose side if anything). Definitely order a size down!

I might be hooked!
I rented this dress (size 4) for my bridal shower and I got tons of complements. The bust was a little big but with a strapless bra no problem at all and a few safety pins helped however to pin the lace part of the bust to the lining underneath so it wouldn't feel too loose. Overall i give the dress a thumbs up and definitely the customer service at RTR a thumbs up!

I wore this dress for my Las Vegas elopement!
The dress was perfect. I loved how it fit, I wanted to wear it all day long. It was very comfortable. Our elopement was a surprise for everyone else except us. I had this dress delivered to our hotel the day we arrived in Vegas. I wore the size 2 but I'm usually a size 4-6. Others had said it ran large and they are right. The dress was perfect for the occasion and I was very happy to be wearing it for our wedding!

Cute, playful dress, nice for summer
This was the backup dress I ordered for my bridal shower that I didn't end up wearing. It's very cute, but definitely more for a super warm summer day than a cool spring one. The lace detailing is beautiful, but for some reason I didn't feel like it had the "wow" factor like some other dresses I've rented.

Everyone loved this dress!
The four fit me better in the bust but not in the hips. It does run large in the bust, I think. Overall I loved the dress and wore it with flats and a black sweater. Was perfect for my bridal shower! Thank you again rent the runway!

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and received many compliments!
I ordered a size 2 and 4. The 4 was big but the 2 fit well, so I definitely recommend going a size down. I am a classic pear shape and this dress fit pretty typically: Fit my hips but was loose around the bust. To compensate, I added some cups to my strapless bra and was good to go. I was nervous about the longer length on me, as I am only 5'2, but was pleasantly surprised with the length and overall look of the dress. Cons: The lace along the top of the dress is very flimsy and kept folding over! I attempted to use fashion tape to keep it in place, but once I sat down the dress pulled and detached from the tape. So not only did I have flimsy, folded over lace at the top of the dress, but I also had a back full of fashion tape. This unfortunately, was pretty noticeable and also very uncomfortable. Also, the black bow was wrinkled and limp which took away from the quality of the dress. I'm sure this is due to constant use. It wasn't a big deal or too noticeable, but it is worth mentioning. The dress loses 2 stars for these cons. Pros: Great fit, especially for a short and tricky pear shape! Beautiful lace detailing- absolutely gorgeous and received SO many compliments!

This is a beautiful dress that was perfect for the baby shower!
Normally, I wear a 2 or 4 in other dresses, depending on the designer. However, like the other reviews stated, this dress runs big. Definitely size down on this one. Even so, I loved this dress and got many compliments. It's well constructed and the lace is elegant. I felt comfortable during the entire party, to make it a little more casual I also wore a little black cardigan. It was perfect, I wouldn't hesitate to rent this again!

beautiful dress for a nice dinner
Loved the dress. very delicate and beautiful. The dress seemed to run big or had gotten stretched out over time. The size 4 was very large in the bust area, but I was able to make it work for a dinner. I wouldn't have wanted to wear it out for a long time.

Looking fly!
Definitely size down! The size 10 looked crisper/newer (the size 12 that was sent looked super worn out and wrinkly!), so I'm glad I was able to squeeze myself into the size 10!! Everyone complimented me on the dress, and I wished I could've kept it for my rehearsal dinner!

I couldn't wear this dress because it was SO big. Order AT LEAST one size down.
I'm usually an 8 in dresses. The 6 was falling off of me and I had to pin the sides to get it to stay up. The liner was torn under both armpits because others had done the same and I ended up not being able to keep the dress over my chest. Since I didn't want to flash my bra at everyone at my bridal shower, I just wore something else. Otherwise, the dress is super cute! I was really disappointed that it was so adorable and yet not wearable. Just order a size and TWO sizes down unless you have a gargantuan chest.

runs large and falls down!
I liked the look of this dress, and it was nice in photos of my bridal shower, BUT it runs huge, wish I had the zero. AND the back needs some double sided tape or something to keep the lace up. I felt like I was pulling it up and fixing the lace the whole time I wore it. Also, the belt is not removable, if you're wondering- its sewn into the dress.

The "Feel Pretty" Dress Everyone Should Experience!
The fit: I am larger in the boob area and this dress had the perfect amount of structure up top that I didn't even have to wear the "dreaded strapless bra" underneath it! I normally wear a size 6 and was able to squeeze in a 2 with no bra. The 4 would definitely have worked if I wore a bra with it. Keep in mind that this dress loosens up a little bit throughout the course of the night, or day, or whatever you wear it for. The look: Sweet and perfect. The color is amazing and the lace/cutout detail is to die for. I did not want to give this dress back! The length: I am also a giant. This dress hits at the perfect length. Overall: Best dress ever. Loved everything about it!

I wore this dress for my Bachelorette Party. It is sweet and simple, but is not form fitting. I should have rented the next size down as well. However, I received several compliments, and it was perfect for a warm spring evening out on the town!

I rented this for my rehearsal dinner. The dress was beautiful and I couldn't wait to wear it, but it was pretty big. I needed tape/pins to keep it up.

Looked great and got compliments but spent all day lifting it up.
The dress looks good. It's more cream colored in person. IT RUNS 2 SIZES LARGE. I'm normally a 4 sometimes a 2 my wedding gown is a 6. I read it runs large so I ordered the 2 and 0. Even the 0 was too big. I had to tighten the ribbon to keep it from falling off and spent the whole day picking it up. I wore it to my bridal shower. I got a lot of complements and as you can tell in the pics it does look good.

Dress was soooo comfortable and pretty! Tons of compliments :)
I usually wear a size 6, sometimes a 4 if it runs large and the 6 fit fine but the 4 fit better. Dress we as easy to move in and dance in. Top lace was a but floppy but able to keep up or lay down, looked nice either way.

not a memorable dress
I was disappointed with this dress when I received it. First, the color is not white, it's not even Ivory. The size 2 I ordered fit, but it had a huge red wine stain on it. The size four was just a tad too big, but I wasn't amazed when I put this dress on, it was just kind of blah.

Strangers stopped at our table to comment in the dress
Wore this on a Sunday to church, then a winery and boat cruise. The dress ran large on the top for me. I worse the size up thinking for church and a afternoon in the sun it would be good, but in retro I should have worn the 6. But the dress is great. Lace up top is a little soft so does fold down a bit. I would rent this dress again, it is perfect for so many occasions.

Loved this dress, wanted to keep it!
I rented a 2 and a 4. This was the second to last day of eating and drinking in NYC for a week, I wanted to be sure that it fit. I went with the 4 and wish that I had chose the 2. It fit really well but was a little bit loose around the bust and waist. I had to pull it up towards the end of the night and I'm a 32 C. Loved the dress so much though, it looked great and was comfortable.

Absolutely loved this dress!!
I am in love with this dress! I rented it for my rehearsal dinner the night before my wedding and I could not have been happier! I received so many compliments and felt great. It does run a bit large, especially if you are smaller in the bust. Luckily, I ordered a second size and it worked out perfectly. This was my second experience with Rent the Runway and once again I was truly impressed with their efficiency and overall customer service. I would recommend both this dress and the company to anyone who asks!

BEAUTIFUL Dress... just a little hard to wear.
Don't get me wrong, the dress was beautiful and I almost got more compliments on this for my rehearsal dinner than I did for my wedding dress the next day! Downside, even though I sized down as recommended, the top continued to roll down or slide down. We finally resorted in using body tape which became hilarious because every time I sat down somebody had to re-tape me. I ended up with tape marks on my chest that were visible on wedding day. Opps! Was the beautiful dress worth all of the trouble? I would still say probably.

Beautiful
I didn't end up wearing this dress because it was slightly too big for me. I thought it would run true to size, and I ordered a size up just in case my chest area needed more room, but neither worked for me. On the other hand, it was an incredibly gorgeous dress, and both dresses that were shipped to me looked as if they'd never been touched before, let alone worn. I'd recommend whole-heartedly, as long as you size down.

I'm 5'4" and 140 lbs. I had read the reviews that it ran large so I got a size 4 and 6. I'm usually a 6 but the 4 was perfect! Everyone complimented me on this dress. It's absolutely gorgeous in person!! My favorite rental yet!

Lots of compliments!
I wore this to my bridal shower and everyone loved it! I usually fluctuate between a 4 and a 6 so I ordered both and was surprised at how big the 6 felt. The 4 fit snugly around my hips but was still pretty big in the bust, my friends had to pin it on me so it would stop falling down! That was the only downfall, the dress itself is gorgeous and everyone loved it.

Weathered and worn.
I rented this as a possibility for my rehearsal dinner. The dress is much more casual in person, less white than anticipated, and has clearly been rented and washed more than a few times. The quality of the dress does not seem to have withstood the use, either. The scalloped top that's so appealing in the picture was soft and fell down. It also runs large. I rented the 2 and would have needed at least a 0, if not smaller! Maybe a casual bridal shower would have been a better choice.

HUGE but pretty dress
I usually wear a 2 or 4 in dresses, and this size 2 was HUGE! The top part is oddly SUPER stretchy so it went from huge to giant just while trying it on. It is also NOT WHITE. I knew this from other reviews but was still surprised at how dark it is. It's like a darker cream color. Still beautiful but just be aware if you are looking for an actual white dress. The bow is such a cute detail, and sewed on so it doesn't slip around anywhere. I didn't wear this one because of the sizing issue.

Very cute lace, large on top
Unfortunately I wasn't able to wear this as it was too large on top and kept falling down. Usually a size 0 won't do that for me. It was a very cute dress though, I just wish it would have fit better.

Perfect for our Reshearsal Dinner!
I wore this dress for our wedding rehearsal (in September). It was a nice bridal look, but the bow provided a good accent. I got several compliments on it. The dress was very comfortable, chic, and I had no problems with it slipping or bunching (which can sometimes happen with strapless dresses). I would highly recommend this dress, though it did run a bit small (I usually wear a 4 and had to wear the six. Thank god for the free second size!)

Perfect for my rehearsal dinner!
The dress I ordered came back damaged and RTR quickly replaced it with this dress. It was very comfortable and flattering. I got a ton of compliments. My only issue was the top of the dress, it stayed up fine but the lace on top fell down a bit. Nothing double sided tape couldn't fix and overall I loved the dress!
