Feeling beautiful AND comfortable in this vibrant dress...
This is a very comfortable and flattering dress! Since I am a curvy individual, when I tried it on, it was a little short, so I wore it with black leggings and sky high heels. My boyfriend was very complementary about how the dress fit and flattered my figure. It was roomy in the bust area, and tighter right under the bust. The sleeves conceal the upper arms if that is an issue for you. The back is somewhat sheer...I wore a black bra and it seemed to look just fine. The only issue I had was the gold thread was coming out of the dress...I am still finding pieces of it on the floor. The colors are very vibrant. All and all I felt wonderful wearing this dress. :-)

I felt fabulous, elegant and comfortable! Everyone at the wedding wished they had rented their dress
I wore this dress to my cousin's wedding at a romantic historic inn in Pennsylvania. It is just an amazing dress! I did not want to return it and people kept asking me if I or they could buy it. The best thing about it is the comfort and effortless elegance of the dress. You will be the hit of the party and it feels comfortable enough to wear any day! It is surprisingly versatile, could go from black tie to garden party, to night on the town in a heartbeat. I also rented the necklace from RTR which just pulled everything together perfectly. I would rent this dress again!

I wore this dress for a thanksgiving dinner and it was so comfortable!
It came to mid thigh as I am very petite(4 10"). not to dressy, ran a little large, but nice and roomy.

Getting to wear a gorgeous dress and feel comfortable and great was so easy with RTR!
The dress is gorgeous and definitely runs a little large. The 8 fit better, but as a larger busted girl I couldn't hide my bra as well with the sheer back and keyhole opening. A backless bra would be better for this dress. Overall I don't think this worked as well on my body type, short and very hourglass. It was cute and I got compliments but I would probably pick a different dress type next time. The ease of renting was amazing! Came in great condition and the descriptions helped a ton! I loved being able to feel special at my event and then just dropping the dresses in the mail when done helped my luggage on the way back too! I will definitely look to RTR again for my next big event!

I wore this dress to a family Christmas party, it was just the festive look I was going for!
This dress does run large. I am usually a size 6, the 4 was perfect. I liked this dress because it is a little sexy, but isn't super-tight. It is very comfortable especially when going out for a big meal! I got some nice compliments, and shared my rent the runway secret with my friends!

I received so many compliments wearing this dress, I looked and felt great in it!
I am 140lbs, 5' 5" and wore the size 10 in this dress with opaque tights and 5 inch pumps and it looked amazing. Very flattering and easy to wear. A couple of the gold threads looked to be starting to pull in various spots on the dress, but it was really not very noticeable.

Very pretty dess. Wore to my daughters HS graduation.
Nice fit, but went out on a limb and skipped the bra, not a great idea due to empire style...I'm almost 50 so my girls kinda drooped a hair, but got lots of compliments still! LOL

This is a gorgeous dress. I did find all the gold was wearing but it was still pretty
Lots of room in the top and skirt, the waist cinches in nicely. It was a very flattering dress. I might have gotten away with a six but the 8 looked good. Overall I'd say I loved the dress and got many compliments to it. I wore it to a fancy BBQ with tights and booties and it was fab!

So unique and flashy!
Fit loose in the bust and skirt but fitted in the waist. A little short on me, I'm 6' tall, but dark tights saved the day. The keyhole in the back was a little tricky with my bra. I wore the dress to my sorority formal and received a ton of compliments. RTR was so slick and convenient!

I got so many compliments on this dress!
This dress was a perfect fit, and I felt comfortable in it. People I didn't know stopped me to ask about this dress. My only complaint was that the gold threading was coming out of it.

This dress is much brighter and more vibrant than the picture shows. It was a ton of fun to wear. Wore it with leggings and heels for a friend's birthday outing. Got a lot of compliments. Runs a little big, so for the extra size it might be helpful to size down.

So Many Compliments
As others have reviewed- this dress runs large. I wore a size 2 for dinner and dancing for a city weekend. I wore it with black leggings and sky high heels and it was perfect. I was very excited about the length because I am really short- 5' with very muscular legs- some dresses can hit in the wrong spot and make me legs look huge. This was perfect and really flattering. Also, very comfortable.

Stunning dress
The fabric makes this dress amazing. It is very fitted in the empire waist. The sleeves are nice to hide those imperfect upper arms. This dress was my backup and did not look as good on me as my 1st choice. It hit above my knees and the skirt looked too full on my hips.

Fun and different
I rented this dress for a dinner party, and it was perfect for the occasion. I wore it with black tights and high-heel ankle boots. I am usually a 6, and even the 4 -- my backup size -- was a tiny bit big. As another reviewer noted, there is some fullness in the skirt, which for me (not much going on in the hips/butt) is flattering. Two other notes: the back is sheer and open above the zipper just where the bra hits (which is not clear from the picture) so you need a backless bra or nude cami. Also, I found the gold metallic to be a bit itchy, esp. under a coat. Agree that the fabric is gorgeous!

Felt beautiful all nights long!
This dress was absolutely perfect for a night out! The colors were more vibrant in person. I can see how the waist fits tight on the rib cage, but I still wore the size down and was very comfortable. Tights and tall shoes during a February trip and this dress turned heads.

This was the first of my close girlfriends from college to get married. It was such a perfect night and having a fabulous dress just made it better!
I loved this dress! The fit was a little big, and I should have gotten a smaller second size as opposed to a larger one. But it was flowy and fun, and I got tons of compliments. Paired it with black pumps and black and gold feather earrings. Top part of the back is sheer, just be forewarned! Overall very pleased, a pretty, comfortable, fabulous dress!

I ordered both the 2 and 4. This dress is very generous in fit. I wore it with black leggings and heels to dress it down a bit. I received so many compliments. The fabric is just beautiful. First time using Rent the Runway and my experience was perfection!

Fantastic!!
Wore this to a Bar Mitzvah today. Was stunning and light as a feather. The dress looks so great on...don't let it fool you on the hanger. I usually wear petite cuts but this hit me above the knee. The fabric is gorgeous. Wore it with a nude stocking and high black patent pumps. Felt so good didn't want to take it off! So much fun. My first rental with RTR. Renting different dresses for a wedding in a couple of weeks...cannot wait!

People kept coming up to me and complimenting me on the dress! It was so fun to wear something different!
I wore this to my friend's wedding and I loved it! I got a lot of compliments on it, including from people I didn't know. It's really comfortable too...I sat in it comfortably for a four-hour car ride. The back is sheer, but I wore a black cami under it and it just looked like a sheath underneath the dress. My only issues with it were that the top was a little big and the waist band part of it kept riding up, so I had to keep pulling it down, but overall it's a great dress! This was my first experience with RTR and I'll definitely be back!

Beautiful dress that runs true to size.
This dress fits amazingly. Its even prettier in person. I've rented it a couple times for parties and its always a hit. It runs true to size but if you get a backup I'd definitely go a size down.

Dress was very pretty and appropriate for my 30th High School reunion.
I ordered size 10 and 12 - chose to wear the 10. I thought the top was a little too full, and I felt very busty, but other than that is was great. Lots of compliments.

Weird fit if you average or big chested.... Also itchy!
First of all, I am a very happy customer of RTR! Even though this dress didn't work for me, RTR sent me another one in time for my event This dress is itchy and also more suitable for small chested girls. I am side C and it was already a bad fit with the shoulder seems pulling down and it looked wrong

Only 0 was available and I needed the 2
The fabric is so beautiful wish I could have worn it but being busty the 0 did not work. The black area which is supposed to under the bust was half way over my bust, not a good look. Would rent again but only the 2.

I loved the fitted waist and flowing sleeves! Unfortunately no pics, but I wore this early spring, so the weather was a little on the cool side - wore with ankle length leggings and open toed, cutout heels, and felt like a rock star. This dress

Gorgeous dress but upper chest lays strangely.
I ordered this dress for my daughter's Senior Choral Banquet and didn't end up wearing it because of the strange fit below my neck. I am a size 4-6 depending on designer. This dress fit perfectly everywhere else, but it seemed like there was too much fabric below the neck. An entire section laid very strangely. I tried 4 different types of bras with it and even tried it bra-less. Nothing worked so my daughter wore it the following day to her Senior Recital. The area below her neck looked better than it did on me, but it didn't feel like it was laying exactly as it should. She received tons on compliments though, so the dress was a hit. It seems it would fit a variety of body types well. Only complaint was the neck/chest area.

This dress was perfect to transition from my bridal shower to a classy bachelorette party!
This dress was not my original pick but it really worked out well! It has enough sparkle for night but a cut that works for day as well, I'm really happy with how it worked out. I got a ton of compliments on it and it photographs well too. It runs a little bit big but not a lot. If you order your size and down one for a back up, you should be all set :)

Fun and flashy!
I wore this dress for a gala, and I loved it. I heard the dress runs a little large, so I tried for the 8 but it was unavailable. I ended up wearing the 6 over the 10 because I liked the neckline better and it ended up looking really sleek - it photographs well and it was fun to dance in. It does get a bit hot but that depends on how much you dance in it. I didn't mind the sheer back and just wore a normal black bra with it. It is short, so if you're nervous, go with tights. Over all a win.

Pretty print that still underwhelmed
I took note from others and ordered my usual size and one down. I wore the smaller size, 4. Very very rarely do I fit a 4. The empire seam made my bust look a little strange, like my boobs were propped up. The back has a small key hole detail that just looks like you didn't zip up the dress all the way. The print is lovely, but it's starting to get loose threads. Best part of this dress is that it can be casual or formal, and can be worn year round with sandals, or with tights.

It was the perfect dress for a bridal shower!
I picked to wear this dress for my friend's bridal shower. Since it only ended up being around 40 degrees that day, I wore it with a black cardigan, black tights, and gold jewelry. It was perfect for the occasion! I got tons of compliments from everyone, and it's even more pretty in person. I am usually a size 8 or 10, but this dress was only available in a 6 or 10 to rent for the day I needed it. Since I read the reviews that said it ran big, I went with just the 6 and hoped for the best. It was slightly snug around the middle waist section, but not overly uncomfortable. I am an average 36C, and because of the fitted waist and extra fabric in the top, the dress made my chest look huge. The only part that was slightly annoying was that the very top of the dress didn't lay flat for some reason. I wanted to constantly adjust it, but there was nothing I could do about it, so I gave up. Also, little pieces of the gold thread were sticking out throughout the dress. Those little things aside, I would recommend this dress!

I absoluetly loved this dress! I wore it for a work gala. I wore a black strapless bra.
The dress ran a little small, so I am very pleased I got the back up size. The dress was very comfortable and beautiful. I got so many compliments. This was my first time renting with Rent the Runway, and it could not have been more simple. I rented last minute, the dress showed up on time, and was so easy to return! Rent the Runway just snagged a lifetime customer!
