The process was easy and the dress was beautiful!
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!

Comfortable and cute
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.

Great dress!! Exactly what I expected.
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!

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.

My third rental and look forward using RTR again.
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 packaging is awesome!
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!

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!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

The fabric is gorgeous!
This was my first RTR experience. I was very nervous because I had just lost a lot of weight and wasn't sure if I would actually fit in a size 10. I wanted to get a size 12 as back up, but it was not available. I read the reviews and overall they said it was true to size. The dress fit me perfectly! The pictures do not do the fabric justice, it's beautiful. I will definitely rent again!

Liked the dress, just not on me
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 is so pretty. When I took it out of the bag to show my mom, she was in awe how beautiful it was! I love the shape, the fabric, and overall fit. It's such a classy dress, it was perfect for Mother's Day brunch.

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.

Opening day at the horse races
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 :)

Picture doesn't do it justice!
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 would definitely rent this again. I wore it for a baptism in May which was perfect. It does run big, I am usually a 6-8 and I wore the size 4. I would recommend sizing down. It also has pockets.

Elegant and classic.
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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

Great dress for a baby or wedding shower. Runs a bit large.
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.

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.
