LOVE!
Like the other reviews stated, the dress does run large (I probably could've worn the medium). This was a last minute replacement dress because my original was too small in the bust, a trouble area for me, but I had no problems with this BCBG. The length was a teeny bit long with 4" heels. The color was great, darker that I expected, but still perfect for a May wedding. The best part was how comfortable it was to move in the dress! I added a belt only because it was big in the waist. I didn't wear a bra, although there's definitely room for one. I would also suggest wearing Spanx.

The slit made the dress
I liked this dress but it wasn't my favorite. The longer size wasn't available so I went with the shorter length which ended up being fine. I really liked the slit and one shoulder. I wish I could have found a belt to accent it a bit but over all I still liked it.

Great color to stand out in a crowd.
I loved this dress for a recent wedding at a high end hotel in DC. The fabric is comfortable with some stretch, but it's loose fitting enough that it's easy to wear and move in. The dress runs big a bit, which is the opposite of most high end dresses. I took a 4 in another dress by Trina Turk. The top was still a bit loose on me (32C) and there is no boning or even that grippy silicon trim to help the top stay up so if you have trouble filling up the top, you might want to pin it to your strapless bra. I am 5'3" and had to use fashion tape to hem the bottom, but it worked! Lots of compliments and stood out from a crowd of mostly black dresses and suits.

Loved this dress! I got tons of compliments. The color was absolutely gorgeous.
As others have noted, the top is a little large. The rest of it, however, is very form fitting and shows every last part of your body. I highly recommend a slip or some other form of shape wear.

Sexy, slinky, and Spanx required!
This sexy dress is in a really fun and unique color. It is more mustard than bright yellow. The dress fit, but fit to ALL the curves on my body. I didn't end up wearing it to the black tie conservative wedding. Spanx are required! If you are edgy, it's a must!

This is my 4th RTR experience. Always great dresses and great customer service!
As others have said, the color is more olive than bright yellow. It is gorgeous and drapes really nicely. The fabric is thin so I was only able to wear control top panty hose for coverage. I am 5'9 and wore 3 inch heels. The SL and the MR hit me almost the same in length. I ended up wearing the small because it fit better through the bust. Lots of compliments and was different in a crowd!

Really fun color that stood out.
You can clearly see that the dress is a little long and maybe even a bit baggy. The color was fun though and I received compliments. The fabric was very airy and comfortable. Wish it was a bit more form fitting but I understand I am a smaller frame.

Unforgettable!
Wore this to a celebration dinner. Loved the unique color and style. I never thought I'd rent the same dress twice with so many options on this site but this dress proved me wrong! The medium was a bit big, I kept checking to make sure it wasn't sliding down too low on the one side. The right shape-wear underneath is a must but proved a bit difficult because the slit is so high.

Super flattering
Fit was a little big especially up top, I could have gone with the small. Color, as noted by others, is mustard not lemon. Gorgeous. Will rent again in the fall.

Unique dress, stood out from the crowd
Such a unique dress. The fit was great (I'm generally a size 2/4 and ordered the XS). Originally was unsure about the color because it's more lemon/lime or chartreuse in person, and not as yellow as the pic online makes it seem. But it really stood out in the sea of cookie cutter wedding guest dresses and photographed amazingly. Also rented the necklace and couldn't have picked a more perfect match!

Fit a bit big, I would go a size down for the back-up. The slit came to about mid-thigh, also has comfortable room at the bust.

RTR is a great way to look fabulous at a fraction of the cost!
This color of this dress looks different in person than on the computer. It seemed to have a bit of an olive hue to it - when I first took it out of the bag I was not too sure. It's not a color you typically see. Once the dress was on it made a big difference, so it is definitely one of those times where you just have to try it on to like it. It was a bit loose in the waist, but not so much that anyone would be able to tell. The dress itself is very comfortable. I paired it with short crystal and gold drop earrings and a crystal and gold bib necklace. It was great for a spring wedding and I received SO many compliments. I was actually shocked how many people said they loved the dress. I would definitely order from RTR again.

Elegant, Flattering, and Comfortable!
I wore this for my dental school's annual dinner dance and I got a ton of compliments on the color! Very unique! I was unsure of the color when I first saw it because it is much greener than it appears on the model, but once I put it on the color really popped and the fit was extremely flattering! I have a difficult time finding dresses that are long enough to wear with heels but I was able to wear 3.5" heels and the hem of the dress was just above the ground! I can't wait to order from RTR again!

Gorgeous fit! Perfect for a spring/summer wedding!
I was a little surprised by the color at first, but it is definitely something that looks better on than it did on the hanger. The color of the dress on the model is much more yellow than the actual dress is. However, everyone still seemed to love it! If I had a dollar for every compliment I received, then I would have probably paid for this rental several times over! The fit was great. I have slightly wider hips, a flat stomach and a smaller bust...this dress accentuated my hips and flat stomach, while also give me the appearance of a slightly larger bust. I would say the fit was a little bigger, but it allowed for some give and more movement. Perfect! Wish I owned this one :)

Loved the Slit!
The draping is really great on this dress, but before you order, you need to understand that this dress is more of a chartreuse or green, not at all yellow like it seems on the website. The slit is a fun accent and the draping helps to hide some problem areas. I got the long, and wore about 5 in heels but it was dragging just a bit and that can get tricky.

The package arrive right on time, and they dress fit - I was ready to go.
The color is not as bright, or yellow as the image. It is more a olive/moss color. Very nice, but different. Dress runs a big big on top - I'm a 34B and wore a medium. Otherwise waist and length was perfect. I wore 5 inch heels and I'm 5'5''. I wore this to a black tie wedding - went over very well.

Easy to wear...so comfy, but looks great on! Color is amazing!
I usually wear a 10, but even the medium in this dress was too big on me. I called RTR and they overnighted me a Small no questions asked (love them!). I wore it to a wedding on a hot day in June and it was still comfy and breezy. Easy to dance in and looks great! I did pin up the folds on the chest a bit b/c it laid a bit funny at first, but it was an easy fix.

I wore this dress to a friends wedding and got loads of compliments. I loved it - it was comfortable, easy to dance in and looked elegant. It definitely runs big, especially under the armpits.

Someone else was also wearing this RTR dress at my event :( So I had to change.
I loved the color in person- more of a mossy green. I ordered the Medium long because I'm 5'7 and wanted to wear 3 inch heels. It was still WAY too long, so definitely get a smaller back up just in case. Although it was long, I would have worn it. I was really upset that someone was also wearing it and I had to rush back to the hotel to change into something else.

This dress was very comfortable, even though it ran big, I think a MR would have fit better .
The color was a little more muted, not as bright yellow as this pictures. Even though it was a little big it worked and loved it!

Gorgeous color and beautiful fit! for our Military Gala. The burst of color in the room!
This dress was amazing - great color, comfortable fit and cool style. I wore this to our local Military Salute gala, and was extremely comfortable wearing this dress for almost 12 hours. I would recommend sizing down for your back-up size. I usually wear a size six, and ended up wearing the small because the medium was too large up top (and I'm a 32 DD).

Super Pretty On! Lots of compliments
I tend to shift between a small and medium and reading the reviews on this dress definitely helped. The small fit perfectly while the medium was wayyy too big. I wore the dress to a science museum fundraiser and the color worked so well! Received a lot of compliments about the color which was beautiful but a brighter greener than the picture. I wore 4in heels, but the length would be perfect on my 5'4 frame for heels between 3-4+ inches.

I wore this dress to a charity gala for Chris Brown's Symphonic Love Foundation.
This is my first time using Rent the Runway and I had a good experience with my rental. I love the color of this gown for spring/summer! As you can see in the picture, it is more of a light olive than the yellowish-green that the site's photo shows. A great color, nonetheless. I loved it. The dress was very comfortable to dance in and I received lots of compliments on the color & style of the gown! I chose minimal accessories, a peach lip, and a pair of nude pumps.

Feeling like a sexy mama
Love, love, Love the color!!!! The picture does not do justice on how pretty the color is. It has a greenish tone to it that makes a statement. I wanted something sexy but elegant for this wedding and this was the perfect dress for it. As my first rental the costumer service was excellent. I originally ordered the small and the medium but both dresses were a little loose on top since I am only a 34b. So rtr was kind enough to overnight me the extra small but in long. As past of their great costumer service they also sent me hem tape free of charge so I was able to hem the dress just perfect for my hight. I wore this with 4 inch heels and added a pretty belt from Anthropology and it was perfect!!

I rented three dresses for a wedding at 7 months pregnant. This was a backup (size M).
The top was too big and the midsection was just clingy enough to show underwear lines. (Of course, the 7 month bump had something to do with that.) If I wasn't pregnant, this would have been a good dress.

Great color and fun to wear!
I wore this for a black tie optional wedding in Palm Springs. The color is definitely more green than the picture suggests, but still beautiful. I paired it with a statement necklace and 1" sparkly sandals and the length was perfect. I got lots of compliments all night! This does run a bit large on top. I went with the XS and am usually a SM, so I would size down. I was slightly self conscious as this dress really hugs your behind and legs, and the slit is too high for most spanx.

Beautiful gown! I received LOTS of compliments.
I'm a size 32A cup; the top fits big. I normally wear a size 4. I should have rented the XS. Additionally, the color isn't as "loud" as the picture. The lime has a more olive tint to it. I'm 5'10" and paired it with 4-inch heels, so the "long" length was perfect. My first time renting. Definitely won't be my last. Visit me on Instagram: @harrietlajade!

Stands out in a crowd!
I got SO many compliments on this dress - and definitely stood out in the wedding crowd of over 300 people. It does run big. I could've worn an XSL. I had to use fashion tape so that the top wouldn't fall down. The long length was perfect for me. I am about 5'8" and wore 3 in heels. I definitely think it also looks way better with a belt. And the belt also helped to hold it up a bit since it was big on me. I wish I would've gotten the XSL as my second size but it wasn't available.
cristinaJune 15, 2014
how thick was the gold belt you used with this dress?
MichelleJuly 22, 2014
where did you get this gold belt?
JuliaJuly 22, 2014
So the gold belt I actually made from a strip of fabric I bought at Joanne Fabrics. I couldn't find a real belt that worked despite looking EVERYWHERE esp since the for has to be perfect. So I found this faux leather stuff I think in the ribbon dept and just bought a strip of it. I doubled it over so the cut part didn't show and used fashion tape to hold it together. I would've sewed if I'd had more time. It worked fine. It was prob an inch thick.

Didn't end up wearing this dress; chose Zac Posen Make it Happen gown instead.
I didn't end up wearing this dress, mostly because it was too big and felt really baggy on me, even after I put a belt on. The backup size I needed (XS) wasn't available. Also, the color is more greenish than it appeared in the picture to me, which was okay, but I didn't love it when I tried it on. (Please pardon the mess behind me and the visible bra strap!)

Such a sassy dress! I got a lot of compliments & loved wearing it.
I'm typically a size 6 and the SL was a little big but still flattering. I'm 5'8" and wore 3.5" heels and the 'long' dress was the perfect length. That slit is super sexy, but nothing inappropriate. The color is far more lime than lemon. Undergarments were a bit tough since almost all lines were visible -- something to keep in mind when planning to wear this gorgeous number.

Beautiful dress; Size Down
I will forever be grateful to RTR and their fabulous customer service for saving the event for me and going back and forth (via email as I was on a 7 hour flight!) until I found a dress that was available, after my initial ones fell through. To echo the other reviewers, the color is definitely more neon. It definitely stands out in a crowd, so if you're looking for a demure look, this wouldn't be the dress. I LOVED it, however. I ordered the Large Regular, to play it safe, as this dress was overnighted to me after my other dresses didn't fit. It was definitely huge on me, and I'm normally between a M and L in dresses. The dress length was great for heels. I'm 5'6" and wore 3 inch heels, and the dress barely grazed the ground. The slit is a bit high causing problems if you're wearing spanx (had to pull it up). But if you can get over that...size down, wear a great necklace, and work this dress like it's meant to be worked!

Spent the evening with an awesome Man.
The dress was perfect. Color was much prettier than it appeared on the website. More of an olive than yellow. It was very comfortable and easy to dance in. What an great website. Will definitely use again and again. The staff was extremely helpful as I originally ordered the long. It was to long with 3" heels. The small short was the perfect length with the heels. Received the second dress the next day along with a necklace Savannah thought would look great. It was pretty but I ended up just wearing a diamond pendant. Thanks again, Rent the Runway. You are awesome. Also, received so many compliments!!!

Dress was beautiful. I received nothing but praise for the color and style.
The chest area was a little big so I used double sided tape to secure it. A little bra slip is nice to feel best in the dress.
