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! ;]

I paired this dress with gold earrings, a black cardigan and black flats. It was the perfect look for our jazz club themed rehearsal dinner party and I felt very comfortable. It runs true to size; however, I felt it was a little stretched out in the bust. I actually had to safety pin the back.

I wore this dress for my Las Vegas elopement!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
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!

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!

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.

Something nice, but not too formal

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Fit was great! I wasn't fidgeting all day making sure I was covered. I worried it would be too short, but it wasn't at all. The only con was that the bow wouldn't stay tied properly. I got many compliments and felt so beautiful that I didn't want to take it off to return it.

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and received many compliments!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
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!

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!

This was a back up dress for my first shower and worked out to be the perfect dress for the shower with family, which was the very next evening. The dress was comfortable and light for a summer out door event. The lace on top kept folding on top because I'm busty but that was it. Everyone loved it and I got tons of compliments on it. LOVE RTR!

BEAUTIFUL Dress... just a little hard to wear.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
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.

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!

The "Feel Pretty" Dress Everyone Should Experience!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
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

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
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.

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.

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 quite right

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I rented this dress for my engagement photos. I was disappointed when I tried it on. The color is almost tan (rather than white), and the top of the dress has a strange scalloped edging all around that doesn't lay quite right against the body- especially along the back of the dress. Needless to say, it wasn't very flattering on me, so I opted to wear something that I owned. The dress seemed to run true to size, however.

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.

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.

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.

HUGE but pretty dress

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
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.

Gorgeous lace, perfect for a rehearsal dinner

Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress for my wedding rehearsal/rehearsal dinner, paired with the Kate Space sea green necklace. It was comfortable and perfect for a hot August day, and I received tons of compliments. The only downside was the fact that the scalloped lace at the top of the dress seemed a bit stretched out/worn out, and definitely required fashion tape to stay up. Other than that, I was very happy with this rental!

The dress was pretty. Definitely an off white and much darker than it looks in the photo. The fabric is pretty but as other people mentioned, because they didn't put the boning all the way up to the top, there's a part that flops down in the front and the back. I didn't end up wearing this dress for that reason. It made it look awful.

This dress is absolutely beautiful. My guests said I could get married in it.

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Party
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).
