Amazing print!

This dress was so much fun! I would definitely recommend sizing up one or two sizes as it runs very small, and the material is not stretchy! Also, because of the cut, I wore a Nubra.

I received this dress as a backup and ended up loving it! The silk is super soft and light - perfect for a summer wedding. This print is just as vibrant / unique in person as it is in the picture. I would recommend sizing up since there is no stretch to this fabric.

I absolutely loved this dress but anyone with a larger chest will need to size up at least one size. The colors are so vibrant and it just flows beautifully. I highly recommend.

As an intern at Rent the Runway, I have had my eye on this dress for a while. During an employee party, it was the first dress I tried on. I loved everything about it, except for the fact that it wouldn't zip all the way to the top. It is a little small around the bust area. Other than that, it is beautiful!

beautiful summery dress

Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this for a summer evening black tie event and it was perfect. It does run small however, especially the midriff section (side zipper). I usually wear a size 6 (5'6", 140 lbs.) but could not zip and had to go with the 8. The fashion tape that was included is helpful around armholes and for very low V neck so bra is not visible. A racer-back bra is ideal for this dress.

I had so much fun at Spring Formal with my friends -- the dress made me feel beautiful!

Size worn: 34L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I absolutely loved the dress. I rented it for my college's Spring Formal event, and it was a hit. I received a ton of compliments on it. I wore a Victoria's Secret low cut push up bra along with fabric tape to make sure that the dress wouldn't cut too low, but it worked out well. The colors are much brighter in person, and the bottom half was beautifully flowy in the wind. I highly recommend it.

I normally wear a 10, but I'm glad I got the 12, it fit me better. I wore a bra with a low back (from VS) and racerback, worked perfectly. The front opens slightly when you sit. It holds you in to give a smaller appearance to the waist, which is always great! Overall, I felt great!! I wore this to a day yacht party and it was blowing in the wind, very feminine. Rent this!!!!

I couldn't have been happier with my choice. The dress is perfect for a casual day party, but can also be worn to a fancy evening event. I couldn't have been happier with my choice

Size worn: 36R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The colors are SO vibrant and beautiful. The silky fabric is light and flows amazingly. I sized-up based on previous recommendations and I was glad I did because the rib cage was cut very narrow. However, then the bust was a bit big on me (but I have a pretty flat chest). Length was perfect with 3 inch wedges. I wore a belt most of the day to help cinch the waist

Ladies...I know this dress is gorgeous, there is no denying that BUT...this dress is NOT appropriate for anyone above a C cup and that's pushing it. I am a 32G and I looked like a stipper. SO not ok. You cannot pull a bra off in this dress. Leave this one for the less endowed...

I rented this dress for my birthday in Miami and i LOVED it!! I'm on the shorter side, so I definitely had to wear heels but it was the perfect length with 4 inch heels on. I felt amazing in the dress. It was long, but it had the lower neckline which definitely showed off a little, but not too much! Just enough! I accessorized with a longer gold necklace, but you could really do anything wih the dress. I would definitely recommend renting, great summertime dress!

Not quite what I expected

Size worn: 38L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered this as my backup dress and wasn't overly thrilled about this piece. I found it to run very small - I could hardly do up the side zipper up my rib cage, even though that is one of the most narrow parts of my body. So I'd definitely size up if you have a bigger bust. The fabric feels nice and the floaty parts that drape down the leg are lovely, but for me, there was just something a bit off with the colors, at least for what I had in mind. I couldn't put my finger on it - they just seemed a bit dull, I guess. The racer back is a nice detail, but might wear making a bra or some sort of support a bit tricky. I didn't think this was the right choice for the wedding I was going to, but that said I think it would be great for a beach wedding or a night out, so please don't be put off by my review!

Fun dress for a wedding

Size worn: 40R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This was a really fun dress that I didn't want to send back! The colors are deeper in person and the pattern makes a statement. It does run a bit small in the rib cage and bust, as other reviewers have noted. It was also a little long for me. I'm 5'6" and wore 3" heels and the regular was still a little long. I would still definitely recommend this dress.

Great dress - so much fun to wear. Gorgeous colors and cut is very flattering.

Size worn: 36L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress and would rent it again. It fit true to size. I am 5'9 so it is always hard for me to find long dresses that are long enough (especially if I want to wear heels). The length was perfect. The only issue was the boobs area is a little revealing, but the sticky tape that came with it did the trick (I would definitely use it).

I rented this for a wedding. I felt like J-Lo because this dress is a bit revealing. It reminded me of the ultra-revealing Versace that she wore to the Grammy Awards. It has the same vibrant colors but I didn't feel as exposed.

So flattering, amazing dress

Size worn: 36R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a pretty formal rehearsal dinner for a September wedding (labor day in Vermont). I loved it, got so many compliments and should have saved it for the wedding as opposed to the rehearsal. Some notes... I have long legs relative to my torso (I am 5'6") and I needed decent heels (like 4") to make the length work. I also don't have a large chest (sigh) so the deep-v wasn't a problem for me... but could be if you are more blessed. Nothing a well placed safety pin wouldn't fix though.

I fell in love with the flow and colors of this dress, but the low cut is another story.

Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: Small

Wore this to a plantation wedding in Charleston and loved the colors and flow of this dress. As previous reviewers had said, the cut under the bust ran super small and felt tight all night. The dress is also very low cut and you cant really hold the girls in (I'm a size 36B). I felt inappropriate for a friend's wedding (but they were all DC lawyers..eh). The long is a must, I have super long legs and it hit the floor perfectly.

The fit was perfect. I did pin the "V" in the front as it cuts low, but the halter back is beautiful and the material is flow-y and lovely. I paired it with a zebra clutch from Diane von Furstenberg which completed the look. It was a wonderful experience

Elegant but breezy! Very fun dress, I got tons of compliments!

Size worn: 44R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress is very low cut and is woven silk so doesn't give at all. I had to go up to my backup size which worked fine. The length worked well--not all the way to the floor in heels which was good. The picture is a very good depiction. I didn't feel I needed a bra, altho I might have done the sticky cups if I wore it again. Since it turned very cold, I added a camel Jones New York shawl--it looked better than the green or blue ones. A nice change from the little black dress or the long dresses that look so mother of the groom-like. I definitely felt like the belle of the ball.

Neckline is low cut. Dress fits true to size. It is long and at 5'4", I wore 4" heals with it and still felt it was a bit long. I would recommend this dress for anything from a daytime event to formal night out.

Definitely a statement dress

Size worn: 42R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented the 40L & got the 42R as a backup and ended up wearing it. The 40L was a little short for being a long, it fit great in the body and the neckline was flattering, however it was very snug at my ribcage & bust. My boobs didn't fit in the dress. The 42R was too big in the areas where the 40L was too small, but I made it work! I pinned the dress at the nape of my neck and at my chest to show less cleavage. The length was great! I wore 3in heals, but I could have worn sandals and been fine. I felt glamorous all night long!!!

- The dress definitely runs snug in the ribcage- but the rest is super flowy and forgiving. - It also runs quite a bit short- I ordered a long and still had to wear flats with it. - The neckline is very low-cut. Worthwhile to pick up some fashion tape to prevent wardrobe malfunctions.

The dress was very pretty in person, but I wouldn't rent it again.

Size worn: None

The dress was fine for my height (5'4"), but I like to wear high heels. The waist and bust were tight, and I have a pretty small upper half. I felt pretty uncomfortable all night, and had to wear a tank underneath because the tape wouldn't stay. Definitely get a size up and read the reviews, I wish I had done so before!

This dress is unique, I didn't end up wearing it for the wedding due to the fact that I couldn't wear any type of bra and when I sat down or hunched over slightly, my boobs were out. So this requires perfect posture at all times, loose in the chest area.
