This is probably my favorite rental from RTR so far. I rented for a rehearsal dinner but was so excited when it arrived that I ended up wearing it for an Easter church service as well. The compliments poured in at both events. The fit is perfect for larger hips. I might recommend sizing up for your back up if you have a larger chest, but overall the dress was super comfortable and it has pockets!

I loved this dress. I received many compliments on it and felt so pretty wearing it!

First, I loooove that this dress has pockets. It was perfect for me to quickly drop my phone or carry my son's (the ring bearer) toys. I was a little surprised to find a slight floral pattern on the dress. It wasn't visible from the online picture. It definitely enhanced the dress, but just not what I expected at first. This was a perfect spring wedding dress. It's a little heavier with a full skirt, so I was warm. I also recently had a baby, so this was a great dress to help hide some of my baby weight. I was very happy and would definitely recommend this dress, maybe even rent it again myself.

Super comfortable & fun dress for a spring wedding!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a spring wedding - and I am so glad that I did! The dress is very comfortable and it has pockets - I mean, how awesome is that?! The navy stripes gave it enough color that I didn't feel as though I was wearing a white dress to a wedding. I paired the dress with navy shoes and a navy shall for added color. I also rented the Adia Kibur Carte Blanche Necklace - which gave the outfit an extra fun factor. I would highly recommend this dress!

This was my first RTR experience, and it was great! My dresses arrived two days early and in perfect condition. I was surprised to see the floral pattern in the white sections since I didn't notice in the pictures, but it made it even more beautiful. I love the fit of the dress. I always need fitted tops with flowy bottoms due to my hips. The arm holes were a bit tight on my arms but everything else fit perfect. Was a bit longer than the average dress (went just below my knee), but I hate it when dresses are too short. Overall great experience. I recommend this dress!!

I rented this dress for my neice's christening. I thought the dress was black and white stripes, but when I received it I realized it was navy stripes and there was detail to the white fabric. I liked it that much more! I tried on the 6 and it slipped right on, no problems and even had a little extra room at the waist. I probably could have gone down to a size 4. Overall I liked the dress, it had pockets! But I don't think it was the right dress for me.

This dress was perfect for the semi-formal semi-casual outdoor 4th of July dinner party.

I wore size 8, I'm 5'11" and 155 pounds. It was a bit loose, but that made it comfortable at the outdoor event I wore it for. Loved the pockets. I added a skinny belt to the waist to add some definition and a pair of "statement" earrings.

I've rented this dress twice now....First time I ordered it a size 4 and it was way too big on, Second time I thought I would be safe ordering a size 2...the overall dress fit much better than the 4 however the shoulder and underarm section was very short/tight. Bottom line dress is beautiful and even with the uncomfortableness of the sleeves I would still order it again :)

Great look for a daytime event

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Great fit and look for a religious daytime wedding that I attended. Dress was conservative, which was what I was going for. It didn't show any bra on the sides, back was fully covered, and dress was knee-length on me (I'm 5'10"). Fabric was thick and richly detailed-- this was a very well made dress. Was able to wear a normal full coverage bra underneath. Size 8 fit my body, but was entirely too tight on my chest, so I went with my normal size 10, which was perfect.

So wonderful to be a size 14 and 57 years old and feel beautiful and fashionable at a wedding full of twenty somethings in their skin tight minis! Thank you RTR for making us older and curvier girls feel beautiful! I ordered the 12 and the 14 since some reviewers said it ran large. The 12 fit except the "girls" were squished so wore the 14. Such a fun dress. Great for dancing and twirling! Pockets were a plus! Love this designer!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size

I loved the dress as the material felt rich and the black and white stood out. The arm holes were just right and the way the skirt fit was flattering to my figure. The pockets were an added bonus. You could add red, yellow, blue or almost any accent color. I used red shoes and everyone said I looked pretty good for an "old broad". I am between a 10-12 but for this one I went with the 10 and it was perfect (I may have been having a skinny day). I would buy or rent this one again.

A bit tight in the shoulders. This may not be a problem for most people, I am a bit broader shouldered. It is just that the 4 was a really ideal fit except for that one area. The fabric was absolutely gorgeous and though it is hardly a showstopper, I felt really, really attractive in this dress.

The material is great, half of it is somewhat embossed while the blue stripes are made of ribbon

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
The only con of this dress is that the waist runs slightly big but it was not a deterrent in the least, but if you have a tiny waist, you may want to reconsider because A line dresses are the best for people like me with wider hips and a bigger stomachs. You can wear this for a day wedding, your office (with a cute sweater) and to a date for either day or night during spring and summer. Temp dropped to about 60F and I wore a jacket just because I get cold. However, the material isn't too thick for summer temps either. Just rent it, you will love it and so will everyone else. The material is somewhat embossed with white designs to add texture and depth, the blue lines are actually made of a really god quality ribbon.

Nice dress. Wasn't overly impressed, but works.

Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress for a summer wedding. I added red costume jewelry, red high heels and a white cardi and it was pretty cute. I have a large bust and arms this dress worked well. I also had a post baby belly I was trying to hide and this dress was okay for that with the help from spanx. Though I did feel that it wasn't the best "slimming" dress out there. The pockets were a nice touch and perfect for a couple little snacks for my little ring bearer. Material was thick and it was a hot day, so not very breathable.

Perfect for an evening meeting

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

This was perfect for an Annual Meeting I was getting inducted as the next President. I agree the torso is a bit longer, but that's perfect for me. I have broad shoulders and the fit was a little snug under my arms, but I was able to wear it for 2 nights to 2 different events and it worked perfect! The front box pleat can make your lower stomach look a little bit, but it could also be helpful if you wanted to hide that unwanted area. The recommended Kate Spade necklace with it was the perfect pop of color I needed. The stripes are navy blue, but black shoes worked fine.

The process was easy and the dress was beautiful!

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Wedding
The dress came on time and it was in perfect condition. It was a little big but that was probably my fault not really knowing what size I needed. I also have wider shoulders and was concerned that a size 6 would be too tight in my shoulders. I ended up wearing a decent push-up bra and added a belt and the dress was good to go! Nice conservative dress for a wedding. I am 5"11 and the dress hit just below the knee. I received lots of compliments. This was my first experience with Rent the Runway and I must admit it was easy and I was impressed with the whole process!

This dress runs big. I normally wear a 10 and the 8 was comfortable. I am a pear shape (8 on top & 10 on bottom) and had to wear a padded bra that was still a bit small to fill in the dress. The pockets are cute. The fabric is thick and expensive looking.

I wanted a pretty spring dress for a meeting, and this was just the ticket. Fabric is beautiful (the white areas have a white on white brocade rose pattern, and the navy alternating stripes makes it a fun print), and the dress is extremely well made. I have a 30" waist and 40" hips, and the fit was perfect.

I loved this dress! The pictures on the site don't do it justice in showing the awesome pattern on the fabric as well as the fact that the navy stripes are grossgrain ribbon.

I am 5'9" and wear a six or so usually. I ordered this in a two after reading other reviews, and it fit perfectly. It is structured at the top to the waist and then flairs. The pockets are great and the dress fell to right about my knee which made it appropriate for a college graduation and daytime party. Well constructed, very New England preppy elegant and entirely classic. I love this dress!

It was a little large around the waist, so I would suggest sizing down if you have a small waist. Fit well on the top and the skirt is a great length for a more conservative event. The dress was good quality with thick fabric. There is a floral pattern within the white part of the dress that I didn't notice in the picture.

I absolutely loved this dress. The white flower detail was subtle yet added an extra layer of interest up close. The dress was really comfortable and ran a bit big. If you have a long upper torso the arm holes might be a bit snug but it didn't keep me from wearing the smaller size. Received so many compliments. Would definitely order the dress again. This is a dress I could definitely see myself buying and wearing it again.

I ordered the 10 with an 8 as my backup size. I'm glad I got the smaller backup size, as that is the one I ended up wearing. Even with a large bust, that was a much better fit for me. I also have larger hips and the fuller skirt worked great.

Adorable Classy Dress with POCKETS :)

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Adorable in every way, this dress not only has pockets which make it practical but the thick construction was the perfect thickness for cool spring day. May be uncomfortable if it was warmer than 70, but it was a perfect classy dress for an elegant and fun evening. I probably could have warn the 2 and not had the rubbing under my arms, but it was flattering and perfect.
