This dress looked amazing!
The fit of this dress was true to size and the 4 fit perfectly even though I also opted for a 6 (but didn't need it). The color was beautiful and I received quite a few compliments on how the dress looked. Only reason I didn't give it a 5 rating is because the lace on the sleeves around my arms did get a little itchy by the end of the event. But, overall it was a great Rent the Runway experience!

Uncomfortable, rigid fit
I had high hopes for this dress due to the many outstanding reviews but I could not even use it for my event due to how uncomfortable and rigid it is on me. I couldn't even move my arms due to the lace feeling it was stabbing me every time I did. It was also too short, I would have been tugging it down all evening. Still, I provided a two star rating because it LOOKS flattering.

Perfect dress for spring weather, day to night
Wore this for a spring wedding in San Diego. Didn't have to try the size 2 because the 0 was already kind of loose fitting (I'm really petite and small chested). The color was more vibrant in person but I'm a sucker for lace details.

Not only is the dress beautiful it's very comfortable and slightly stretchy- good for dancinf
I am always between an 8 and 10 and the 8 fit great and didn't feel tight at all. It was comfortable and perfect for the fall wedding as the deep magenta color was great. I'm 5'6 155lbs and 36D bra and the 8 was perfect.

ran slightly large
The dress ran on the big size, especially in the bust area. If you are between 2 sizes go for the smaller. I am 5'7 145 lbs and a 6 would fit me.

Knockout!
This dress is an absolute knockout! It hit in all the right places giving my body curves and hiding trouble areas. The material in the sleeves was stretchy, so my arms were surprisingly comfortable and not sausages! I wore this for a morning wedding ceremony and it was perfect. I would rent this again and again.

RTR is very easy and great to use. Will be my go to for all my upcoming events.
Very comfortable. I️ had many compliments on the dress and the color was beautiful. The only con would be the sleeves are a bit "scratchy" but tolerable.

Gorgeous color, fit beautifully, felt amazing
This was my backup dress and so happy I got it!! I loved the color and how it fit. My only complaint was it was shorter than I thought it would be. I was self conscious about it. This was my first RTR experience and it was awesome!!!

Color Poppin!
This dress was great for a wedding my husband and I attended. I wasn't sure what the weather was going to be in South Louisiana in November (since it's never consistent!) so I decided to rent a dress with a little sleeve incase it was cold, but it ended up being quite hot and humid so luckily the sleeves were lace and breathable! The only downside is the sleeves are little tight around the arms, so if you have bigger arms, I would go up a size. I tried the 8 and it was too big around the body so I just sucked it up with not being able to raise my arms all night! Lol overall this dress is perfect for any occasion!

It worked.
This was my first rental. I loved how it ships. It was a pretty dress. Unfortunately, I forgot that 50% of the time I get my dresses altered. I don't think a 4 would have fit me in the hips but the 6 was a bit big on top but that is just my shape. I just rented again and choose more of a fabric that will stretchy, in hopes that it fits my upper body tighter.

Fits well, especially for bustier women. Love the color and it was comfortable. Only con is that it was a little long for me (I'm 5'3).

Rented for a work awards dinner but didn't wind up wearing it
Beautiful dress and color. Great for an hourglass figure, sexy and classy. I am usually an 8 but I ordered a 10 and 12 just in case. I probably could have fit in an 8, 10 was comfortable and looked good but slightly large. I did not wear it because I had a second style that I chose instead.

Cocktail themed wedding favorite
This was my first experience with RTR and I was very pleased! I was a bit nervous about the color but with my skin tone and purple hair the bright color really worked. I'm usually a size 4, as I have pretty wide hips for a smaller frame, but the size 2 fit really well and it was actually kind of loose. I didn't even try my backup size 4, I would have been swimming in it. The only downside to this dress is that it doesn't breathe really well. To be blunt, I was not the freshest smelling rose by the end of the night! Despite that bit of a downside, I received so many compliments and really felt quite comfortable in this dress that I wish I could buy it!! The sleeves are not scratchy or itchy at all. It's really a wonderful dress!

Pretty color and lace
I was a little disappointed in this dress. I ended up not wearing it because I felt like it made me look too matronly. It doesn't have a lot of shape to it either. The color was great and the lace was nice but I just wasn't into it.

Beautiful fall color!
True to size dress perfect for outdoor fall wedding. The color was beautiful! The dress was flattering without being too tight. Bonus- I could wear a regular strapless bra with the dress. Overall, a great and affordable rental for a wedding!

Amazing color, perfect fit
This dress was amazing, it was sexy but in a classy way! I got so many compliments on the color. The dress runs true to size but I was unable to wear a regular bra with it - it showed. I ended up wearing a strapless and spanx and it was perfect.

Perfect dress for late summer/early fall weather
Perfect fit! I received many compliments on the style and the color - loved it! I was nervous the top would be revealing since the bottom layer is low cut but the lace overlay made it work. Sleeves rubbed a little bit but once I got used to the fabric it was fine.

Overall I liked this dress and got many compliments on it.
Sleeves did run a little small. I ended up starting out in the bigger dress because of it for the ceremony, but then the front was too low and showed my bra so I switched to the 14 for the reception. The length did hike up a bit when i was sitting so I needed a size between the two. However in general I liked it alot especially because this is one of the lower price point dresses and it still felt like very good quality.

Nice but not my favorite
I rented last-minute so I didn't have a lot of options. This dress fit fine but wasn't super comfortable and wasn't the most flattering. The chest area was not tight enough to go braless, which was a bummer.

Did not fit
The dress fit tighter than I anticipated and the arms and ahoulders were uncomfortably tight. The 20 wasn't available as a back up, so I had to pick a different dress as a backup. The color was very pretty and the design was nice, just not a good fit for me.

Wore this to my brother-in-law's wedding.
Beautiful dress! Received lots of compliments. I will say that it runs large. I am almost always a size 8. I could have easily sized down to a 6. It would have been perfect if it had been another inch longer. Other than that, I loved it!

I wore this dress to my cousin's wedding. The number of compliments I received were a great addition. I wore the 18W but since it doesn't stretch, I could have gone up a size. #Wedding #lovethecolor #RTRfanforlife

Loved the color, perfect for a chilly, late September wedding.
Reading other reviews had me convinced that this dress in my size would be too small. I'm usually a 6, but instead rented an 8 as the normal size and a 10 as the backup. My thinking was that I'd rather it be a little loose than too tight for dancing/sitting/etc at a wedding. The 8 was too big, but I loved the color and wanted something with sleeves as it was a chilly day, so I wore it anyway. It worked out fine. It wasn't as form fitting as the right fit would've been, but it was still wearable. Make sure you order true to size so it's not baggy on you!

I wore this for a date night and then to a wedding as well. It was perfect for both.
Just be aware that the slip comes down a little far in the front, you may need some garment tape.
