Classy and colorful
I was worried about the color of this dress, but loved it when it was on, the color is darker than it appears. It is super comfortable though the lace on the arms can be a little scratchy. I wore this to pick my boyfriend up from the airport as a little showstopper surprise and it worked like a charm! I paired with silver pumps and jewelry.

Perfect for a Fall Wedding or Cocktail Party!
This dress is so unique and lovely that you don't need to do much more once you've got it on! I was a little concerned about how form-fitting it was, given that I don't usually like showing off my tummy, but with a little help from some spanx and nude tights, it was perfect! It ran a bit shorter than I anticipated (I'm 5'6), but I think that's because my hips and booty kept making it ride up a bit. My boo couldn't keep his eyes off me, and the color, although a bit brighter than it appears on the website, is easily muted in a darker room/late evening event. Word to the wise--be ready to go strapless, and have a friend around to help you zip up the back! If I could do it over again, i think I would have gone for a corset shaper to wear under the dress instead of spanx and a strapless bra, just to smooth everything over, but overall I'm very happy with my choice!

Perfect fit! Lots of compliments!
I'm losing weight right now, so I'm a bit difficult to size. I normally wear a size 12, but can wear 10 or 14. Based on reviews, I got the size 14 as my backup. They both fit very well. The size 12 was a bit tight in the shoulders/sleeves, but not uncomfortably tight. The 14 fit well there, but was a little baggy over my hips. It was also a little lower in the front and showed more cleavage. I was already a tiny bit uncomfortable with how much was showing in the 12, so I went with the 12. The cleavage showing wasn't too bad, but I wore the dress to preach a sermon at church, so I felt pressure to be modest. The lace over it concealed the cleavage enough that I felt okay. I loved the length. It was perfect for the occasion. The color is absolutely gorgeous. I got so many compliments on the dress. The worst part was sending it back!! This was my first Rent the Runway experience, and I would definitely call it a success!!

The color is incredible! Perfect for a formal (indoor) summer wedding.
Fit into the 4 but went with the 6 due to a little extra room in the hips. Loved the dress - felt modest enough for a formal wedding but fun with the lace on top. After hitting the dance floor I noticed some discomfort with the lace rubbing around my arms, but that was my one complaint!

This dress was perfect! The color is amazing. Got many compliments. The sleeves were snug at first but stretched out throughout the night. Length is perfect too. This was my first rental & I am hooked! Process is so easy! Rented another dress for next week!

Beautiful color!
I actually didn't end up wearing this dress because it was stifling hot and with the wedding being outside, I know I would be uncomfortable in the lace. I will definitely rent this again to wear as it is a beautiful dress and perfect for a wedding.

Beautiful
Wonderful color I don't normally wear, amazing fit. Small issue for my figure was the dress lining was too low cut for my taste in the chest area. The hem was torn a little on the lace but no one could even notice so it wasn't a big deal. I did receive tons of compliments as always.

This fit perfectly! Not to big, not too small - the color is gorgeous! The only flaw was that there were a few snags in the lace.

Perfect for a fall wedding. The lace on the sleeves was a little itchy by the end of the night, but length and fit was just right. My favorite RTR dress so far!

First Time Rental
This was my first fime to use RTR. I had 3 different designer clothes and ended up with this dress. The previous reviews did help me decide to pick out this dress and I'm soo glad that I did. I'm 5'3, 38C and worn size 12. The dress looked very elegant and wasn't difficult to wear at all. I'm heavy on the tummy side and it helps that this dress somehow takes the focus away from the 'problem areas'. It was very comfortable to wear and never had any problems with it. Worn it to a summer wedding in New York last July 1. I'm so glad that I didn't stick to a regular BLD just to hide my problem areas. It's very refreshing to know that I can wear lighter colors. I'm looking forward to use RTR again. This was a great experience for me.

I loved this dress. The material seemed like it was going to be uncomfortable because of the raised lace patterns but it definitely wasn't. I felt comfortable in it and got so many compliments. Would definitely rent again for a wedding or party!

Perfect fall wedding dress!
This dress got so many compliments! Literally almost everyone I talked to at the wedding asked where it was from! The dress itself was super comfortable and forgiving. The sleeves were a little tight but it stretched out a little by the end of the night. I would definitely recommend renting this dress!

Fun Military Dinner Dress. Color and fit were perfect
Fit was very true to size. The lace isn't very forgiving but it wasn't a problem. Lace on arms was a little itchy but didn't really notice it. Highly recommend

I was so comfortable in this dress!
This was my first RTR experience..and it was great! I was nervous bc I am petite and don't usually find a fit I like. This dress was perfect. The length hit right above the knee and it fit perfect all over. It especially hid my untoned belly from my recent birth :). I received so many compliments! The quality is great too, for such a great low price! The other reviews were right about the arm band being tight..but it was nothing that bothered me. I can't wait to rent again!

Rented this dress for a wedding on Cape Cod. It was perfect! The fit is true to size and because it was slightly chilly out the fabric was perfect for keeping me from freezing. I would definitely recommend it.

Perfect pop of color
This was actually sent as a backup, because my original order was returned damaged. I was a bit nervous about getting a dress with sleeves as the backup as it was a warm day spent on a rooftop for a party, but it ended up working out. Very comfortable, no-fuss dress. Color is much more vibrant in real life than it appears in the photos online.

Family reunion with a splash of color
Losing weight made it even more possible to have more options from RTR :) even though size 12 fit but it was a bit tight - always thinking comfort when it comes to dresses and this size 14 dress was perfect and the best part $30 only!!! Regular nude color bra and recommend silk undies for smooth lines but the under layer was cotton and felt great and soft. The lace is a bit harsh on the arms but tolerable. Wore camel colored closed toed heels with big square diamond earrings, gold leaf thin bracelet . Can't wait until my next wedding in October!!

I didn't end up wearing this dress, because with my bust size it left too much cleavage for the event I was attending. It was beautiful and the 10 fit perfectly. I'll likely order this again so I can wear it somewhere!

I wore this dress for a Bar Mitzvah, I had several comments on the dress. Everyone loved it.
I am 5' 8" and I have very long legs. I got a 4 and a 6. They both fit well I wore the 6 because it was a little longer on me. The dress fit like a glove. The material was very giving. I absolutely loved the dress. I highly recommend renting this dress. I will definitely be renting more. #gorgeous #beautiful #stunning

Beautiful dress!
I rented this dress for a wedding in May. I wanted to go a little more conservative (covering more of my legs and shoulders) since this was a Catholic wedding. It was perfect! I am 5 foot tall with a petite and athletic build and the dress which was a size 2 came down to about my knees. I am a 34A and the dress fit well in the chest area, a tad tight around the shoulders but it wasn't horrible. 100% recommend this dress :) I got so many compliments on it!

I rented the 10 and the 12 and used the 10. I'd say it was true to size. Received compliments all night. It was super comfortable and flattering! Another great RTR experience.

Perfect dress for a Fall event
I wore this dress to an event at our church in the Fall. The color is gorgeous and the fit was great. The only downside was that the slip underneath the lace kept sliding so I had to continually fix it throughout the night. Aside from that, it was a beautiful dress and worked out great.

Lacey but tight in the arms
This was my first RTR experience! I rented this for captains night on a cruise I took. The color is very vibrant and it's very well made, but the arms have no give or stretch in the forearm area. I couldn't move my arms much and for pictures I kind of had to hide the fact of it being so tight in that area. I loved the dress and it was very classy love love RTR!

Beautiful wedding
I usually wear a size 6. My sister had rented another dress similar style but I barely fit in that size 10. I was nervous but the size 8 was okay. It was a bit tight and I had to purchase tummy slimming underwear and wear control top pantyhose, which are both super sexy accessories! I probably would've been more comfortable in a size 10 but didn't want to go through the exchanging process on a Saturday before a Sunday wedding. But I loved the color and the lace wasn't itchy at all. Also, I fell on a grate and the dress didn't rip so that's a plus!

Great color!!
The dress was great but the braces tricky. I had to wear strapless bra n the pin the bra to the dress. The dress is pretty much a slip with a lace dress over it. I did love the color n style of the dress.
