This was a beautiful, classy dress. Got many compliments on it!
Fits true to size, hit just passed the knees and I'm 5'4. Perfect for summer wedding- loved the pockets and subtle floral design in white sections.

Tons of compliments!
Like other reviews, the bodice was quite snug and the arms cut small. I would have been fine with the 8 otherwise. The waist is not fitted, so I paired it with a belt to assist. Loved the dress even with the smaller arms, received tons of compliments all night, and my boyfriend asked if I could buy it.

Chose to wear the other dress I ordered.
The material was beautiful, and the detail of the lace on the white stripe was a nice touch. I loved that it had pockets. I ordered this as my back up dress, and chose not to wear it. For me this dress ran large. I ordered the 10 and it was pretty loose. Would be a great dress in a smaller size for a casual event.

Comfortable dress with pockets!!!
When I first tried on my dark bedroom, I thought this was black and white. So I wore black shoes. When I got out in the sunlight, I realized it was actually Navy Blue (oops). Gorgeous dress regardless, quality material, and comfortable with pockets!!! The length was a little long for my short 5'1 self, but it worked. I loved the stitched pattern on the material as well (does not show up in pictures, but beautiful in person). Great dress, will rent again.

I felt super confident walking into my bridal shower in this dress :)
The dress fit perfectly. The pockets didn't make the dress look wider. The dress is made of a somewhat stretchy material which was nice.

Nice, simple dress. Easy for Easter at church.
This dress was a simple pick. It's nothing miraculous, but it fits nicely and is comfortable to move around in. It's a classic shape and the navy and white stripes are easy to wear. My only complaint is that the white in the dress around the neckline was a bit dirty from makeup it seemed. I would have preferred if the dress was a bit more crisp and not so tired looking when it arrived to me.

So cute!
This dress has this great detail that is hard to see in the photo, fits well at the waist but is a little tight around your shoulders. Great dress though! I wore it for a rehearsal dinner.

I got so many compliments!
I wore this to my sister's rehearsal dinner, where I was the maid of honor. I got so many compliments! I wore it with a thin brown belt, coral pumps and a chunky coral necklace. It was true to size, though I thought it was slightly tight under the bust (of which I was plenty) and around the ribcage. However, stick to your regular size.

POCKETS IN A DRESS! Wow!
The fit was perfect- pleats in the right spots. Great cut. Beautiful fabric. The fabric has a brocade pattern on the white portions, and it's a heavier fabric. Perfect for anything seaside-related. I didn't want to send this back. It was so comfortable and beautiful!

Cute and Preppy
I got the size 4 and the size 6. I have a broad back and it is not unusual to have to wear a size 6 because of that. The size 4 actually fit better except for the armpits being way too tight and cutting into my arm (I think someone else mentioned that). I did wear the 6 and it fit in the arm pit but I think the waist looked a little big. On the plus side, this was such a cute dress. I wore it at an event (I am an event planner) and the pockets in the dress were very handy. I did get a lot of compliments on it.

Classy and fun!
Rented for a sorority sister's wedding. Fit was great! I have big hips but a small ribcage, so the 6 fit perfectly and accommodated my hips. 8 fit well too but was a bit large in the chest for me. Arm holes were a little tight but not too uncomfortable. LOVE the pockets! Wore nude heels to go with the navy stripes. Overall I loved it--very flattering, classy and modest, but still comfortable enough for dancing!

Didn't fit right
I'm rather long-waisted and this dress did not hit me right. I felt a bit uncomfortable while I wore it and kept adjusting it all day. It's a pretty dress, though.

Dress had great detail!
So...I didn't end up wearing the dress because I forgot it at home, 5+ hours from the venue! But I did try it on and would have worn the 2! Dress for great, had great detail, and I was wearing it for a wedding on a boat, so was perfect! Would rent again and hopefully wear it this time!

Comfortable classic dress.
Perfect for a wedding. Simple, classic shape. Hit right above my knee cap (5'9"), so I didn't have to worry about it riding up on the dance floor. Nice thick fabric. Really comfortable. Pockets. The 4 was a tiny bit loose under the bust.

Super comfy, loved the pockets!
This dress was very comfortable and easy to wear. Hard to tell from the photos but there is a floral design to the white part of the dress. Very thick fabric so no wrinkling, and I was able to wear regular undies and bra (which was great because I forgot to pack a bra and ended up wearing a sports bra with it!) There are also clips inside the dress straps to hold your bra strap in place. The thick fabric and formality was perfect for an outdoor fall wedding. The pockets were deep and amazing. Fit was pretty flattering for my post-baby belly, and true to size. The 8 had a bit of wiggle room but I think a 6 would have been too small.

Classy, lovely fabric, and POCKETS!
I wore this dress to a friend's graduation. It was in Arizona in May, so I was a little worried the fabric would be too heavy for the heat, but it really wasn't. I thought the dress looked so classy for the occasion, and I love the embossed detail on the fabric. I tried the 4 on first and it fit so well I didn't even bother trying on the 6. My friend's Mom said it looked like the dress was made for me. I was able to wear a regular bra with it and the pockets came in handy for my phone and camera. I would definitely rent this one again.

Beautiful dress, great quality
I wore this to a baby shower I hosted in my home. I got lots of compliments on this dress, and it was really comfortable for me to run around in all day. Like others mentioned, to top is a bit tight. It fit me, but I could see it being tight on larger chested women. The full skirt is very forgiving if that's a problem area for someone. Also, the picture makes the torso look really long, but I was happy where the waist hit on me. The pockets were a plus! The fabric is a nice thick quality and looks very expensive in person. Can't beat the price of this rental either!

Flattering and fun, but has extremely tight arm openings.
I normally wear a six in most things and have an athletic build. The size four fit perfectly everywhere except in the arm openings. They were SUPER small and tight on my broad shoulders and athletic build. Regardless, it was worth the slight discomfort because the dress looked great and it's always a bonus when there's pockets.

You can wear a regular bra (and it has good bra straps) and the pockets are fabulous. Very comfortable dress.

I love the rent the runway experience! The fabric on this dress is beautiful. The navy grosgrain is set on top of the two-toned white fabric. It has pockets which is obviously always a plus! Not the most flattering dress I've ever worn but I still got TONS of compliments on it!

This dress was comfortable. Love the pockets. Received a number of compliments
Wore this dress for a daytime mass wedding and an evening reception. As others have said, this fabric doesn't really give and it's tight in the bust. I normally wear a 12 so I ordered the 14 and sure enough, I needed the 14 and even then it was snug. My posture was good all night! The fabric is pretty thick so it holds up well and hides a lot. The navy is beautiful. For a horizontal striped dress, it it pretty flattering. I chose the chunky pearls and really liked the look. I would wear this again in a heartbeat.

The style and colors were perfect for an outdoor, late summer wedding.
I am typically a size 8, hourglass with large chest. The size 6 was PERFECT. No bra required. Pockets are an added bonus. Felt the dress was flattering and festive. Fabric is beautiful up close. I wore with nude shoes and light gold accessories (Eve clutch from RTR). Added my own statement necklace, but it would have been fine alone. Received several compliments. This dress is very comfortable and looks beautiful in person. Sorry the picture isn't a better one!

The detail in the fabric of this dress is amazing!
This dress fit as expected. I think it was a little too big, especially after seeing that there was excess fabric in the torso area, but I think the next size down would have been uncomfortably tight. Regardless, I really liked this dress. The detail in the white fabric is beautiful. It is pretty heavy, so I would not recommend it for an outdoor event in the middle of summer. I bought a bright pink necklace and earrings from Kohl's that I thought paired beautifully with the dress. The rental experience with RTR was fantastic, and I can't wait for my next rental!

Very comfortable dress I received many compliments. I wasn't too happy with the quality, due to the fabric it had a snags and looked worn. Overall it was still a good experience.

The pockets!
I wore this dress for a Kentucky derby party and I received compliments all day! The pockets made it so easy as all I had to carry was my cell and I didn't have to worry about leaving it anywhere. The dress was so comfortable and it was perfect material to wear on a warm day.

Very pretty and feminine dress. The picture does not do the fabric justice - there is an embedded embroidery background that really make this dress unique. Perfect fit, great length and great wear for a party, church event, wedding, just about anything! I did size down as the 6 ran a little large on me.

Clean and classic even though the top was a bit big
This dress looked almost black on my monitor, but rest assured, it's a lovely navy blue. I rented a hot pink Kate Spade necklace to pair with it. I was newly pregnant and a little bloated so the cut left me a little room to breathe, but the top was a little boxy. I enjoyed being "on theme" at a yacht club wedding reception wearing this.

I ordered the 4 which was a little lose in the waist but the 2 was booked. Heavy material and lined. I used it to a church function so the length was great!

Lovely detail, quite long though
I loved the look of this dress - and did wear it for my rehearsal dinner, but it was a little too long for me (which I NEVER say) I am 5'8" and don't like to wear dresses shorter than mid thigh. I felt as though the length wasn't super flattering when paired with the horizontal stripes. I usually wear a 6 and I went with the 4 because it fit better in the waist - but was pretty tight around my armpits and there was some rubbing at the end of the night. It was ok- but I probably wouldn't rent again.
