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.

Felt beautiful all night long!
I rented this dress for a night out with my girlfriends during my bachelorette weekend. It was PERFECT! It looked so beautiful on, and made me shine as the bride-to-be. I felt confident and pretty the whole night.

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!

Gorgeous, delicate-looking dress. I got tons of compliments!
The material is very delicate, which looks great but is a little difficult to handle. The top of the dress is scalloped in the front and back, and the material kept falling down. Use body tape to keep the cute top from flopping over.

It's not a white dress
I need a white dress for a formal occasion that the dress code has to be white and this turned out to be a wrong choice. Although it was list as a white dress and looks like that in the picture, but ots color is more of an ivory or cream. Maybe it just me but the dress look like you put the whole table cloth on you body and tight it with a bow. That's it. very disappointed.

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!

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!)

Classy and chic
I didn't end up wearing this dress for my event because it was my backup option. However, I would rent this again if I had the opportunity. Very flattering although I do have wider hips so I think this would look even better on someone with a narrow figure.

I am so impressed with RTR! This dress was beautiful! I will be using RTR for all my big events.
Dress was accurate to the pictures and description. It was delivered on time and clean (also in a dress bag which was great for keeping wrinkles out) with instructions on returning it. I was able to wear it and mail it all within the same weekend. It's a great idea for events where you want to wear something nice, but not have it collect dust in your closet. Absolutely loved this dress for our engagement pictures. I recommend it to anyone looking for a great, summer dress.

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.

Modern lace dress with a vintage feel.
I wish I could have worn this dress, it was very romantic with a modern chic silhouette. Not precious at all. However this was unwearable on my body type. This is not for hourglass figures with a curvy rear and top and small waist. The fabric hung and was drapy in the waist and straining across the hips. The top fit well but this would look truly stunning on someone with a less defined hip to waist ratio. Disappointed.

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!

So many compliments!
I ordered the dress for my bridal shower and I have never received so many compliments on a dress!!! I had so many people asking about my dress and where I got it from! I wish I could keep it!!!! I am about a 32D and the 0 was a little tight around the bust but the 2 was a little loose around the rib cage. The color is not really white, it's more of a bone color but the lace on the dress is beautiful!!! It's a great dress, comfortable and perfect for my bridal shower!

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!

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!

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.

Summery lace
I didn't end up wearing this dress, as I ordered it as my backup. However, it's extremely flattering. It was a little big in the bust, and I was worried I'd be adjusting it the entire night which is why I decided to go with my original dress, but the lace detailing is gorgeous, and I would totally order this dress again for perhaps a more summery event.

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!

Very pretty, but not the best choice for a curvy girl
Great dress, but I was a little self conscious in this one because it is a very straight line and it pulled a bit on the waist and hips. I put a scarf over it to dress it down a bit and gave it a bit of a country look, which worked well. You might want to steam the black felt bow in the front if you rent this one as it is tacked on and looked a little rough the day I wore it. I liked it, but would not necessarily rent it again.

I loved this dress. It's a pretty, feminine,girly dress.
In all the reviews everyone sad the top ran big, but on me not so much I wear a 36 dd bra and a size 4-6 pants. The 6 fit but not in the chest so I wore the 8 & it was very snug in the top.

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.
