Vibrant color and surprisingly light fabric. The dress was well cut and I felt like it was a very classic shape .

I felt sophisticated and beautiful - wish I could buy this dress!

I loved the color, fabric, texture and structure of the dress. I received so many compliments all night, but the highest of all is when one of the grooms interrupted a guest to tell me how amazing I looked in that stunning dress. The only con is when the dresses arrived they were both damaged. The hem of the size 10 was flipping up and showing about an inch of the lining. I fixed it by pinning the lining up. That is why I gave 4 out of 5 stars.

I love pockets!

Fit: true to size. Pros: beautiful color and pattern! Loved the pockets and cap sleeves! Cons: felt like I was choking a little when sitting. Wish the waist fell a little lower to further accentuate the natural waist.

This dress looks pretty in the photos but does not wear well.

I was hoping that the dress would not have the negative traits that other reviewers mentioned, but unfortunately it was not flattering at all. It was cut for a very, very petite person- Maybe someone who is extremely thin with a short torso. Although I have thin arms, under the arms was very tight, squeezing the underarm skin in an unattractive way. Because of this I didn't wear the Size 0 and sized up to the Size 2. Although the Size 2 was somewhat better under the arms, it was very baggy in the abdomen and lower back. Overall, it was not a good fit. The material and print were beautiful, but the cut was awkward.

Wore this dress to a "black tie preferred" wedding in December.

The dress fit perfectly and was a very flattering cut. I was nervous to get it shipped to a hotel, but it was already in my room when I checked in. Everything went according to plan.

I love this dress!!!! It truly pops up my complexion

I'm normally a size 6, but the 4 fitted just right, but still a little loose but it was okay for me. I love the fact that it has pockets so I didn't have to worry about my phone slipping out because there was enough room. This dress has no cons because it's just perfect!!!!#yassss#flawless

I wore the 8 bc the 6 felt a little tight in the chest/arms, which ended up feeling too big on the bottom. Beautiful pattern and nice dress - got lots of compliments!

It made me feel glamorous...I didn't want to take it off.

I wore it to my bridal tea and got so many compliments! The dress is stunning. Well made and the color is gorgeous. The cap sleeves are a little constricting but other than that the fit was great.

Loved this dress, it was perfect for a "between winter and spring" wedding!

I was worried because the fabric doesn't like have a lot of give...or so I thought. It stretches a little bit but not too much. The dress is super flattering and I got so many compliments on how it fit like a glove. The pockets are large enough to fit an iPhone 6! Overall, it was another successful RTR experience!

Pretty dress, but it didn't fit.

This dress is perfect for a wedding or cocktail party. The fabric was thick and satin-y, and I don't see it wrinkling too much. Unfortunately, the size 4 gave me no room to breathe on top. My rib cage is a bit wide and I like breathing, so I didn't get to wear it.

This was my first rental and I was overwhelmed at how easy the RTR process was. Love it!

Many of the reviews said it ran small, so my back-up size was one size larger. I tried on the 6 and it was a perfect fit! I notice many people also noted it was tight around the arms when dancing (putting your arms up); I didn't have that issue, but I did notice that when lifting my arms the capped sleeves would sometimes fold under. I wore this dress to the LA Ballet's showing of The Sleeping Beauty. I was so comfortable to walk around in and sit in. I got many compliments on the dress, even from strangers! I would rent this dress again, for sure. I would highly recommend this dress for a semi-formal affair. I loved the simplicity of this dress. I could have worn a statement necklace (though that would have hidden the beautiful neckline) to really dress it up. I wore simple peridot drop earrings and nothing more. You can really make this dress "yours".

Amazing dress for a southern garden wedding!

This dress fit like a glove. It was very comfortable. Due to the cap sleeves I couldn't raise my arms above my shoulders. This wasn't an issue though, as there was no dancing happening in this dress for this event! If I could've kept this dress I would have in a heartbeat. I received so many compliments. My husband thought it was the best of all the dresses I wore the whole weekend (this was a 3 day event wedding!) My first RTR experience was great. I did have the foresight to go to Neiman Marcus & try on this designer for sizing to make sure how it would fit before I rented. I will do that in the future for other rentals of possible!

Beautiful color, great fit

Usually I'm a 0 or 2, but the 0 wasn't available, but luckily the 2 ended up being a great fit. Such a beautiful dress! Wish I had rented (or owned) a perfect statement necklace but I made do with a longer one. Felt lovely and springy! Remember to stand up straight because the skirt does poof a bit around the hips, but I still loved this dress. Arrived in great condition too!

Comfortable dress that received a ton of compliments

I rented this for a work event so I really needed comfort - this fit the bill. It is shinier than in the original photos but that just makes it pop more. It doesn't accentuate anything but it is still flattering and definitely good for a long night

Size and color true to my expectations!

This dress is perfection. I was a bridesmaid for a small wedding. We were each asked to pick a flattering dress in teal. I was the last of the three women to choose. I had the charge of creating cohesion among the three dresses. I needed a dress that had a subtle pattern and flattered two different shades of teal. The color was spot on. The pattern was subtle. And the fit was sexy, yet formal. Exactly what I expected and needed. I'm neither hourglass nor pear shape (smaller bust, slimmer hips, but curvaceous backside). The dress is body conscious in the hips as others have mentioned. I would not say that it "runs small" but rather hugs the body in the hips. I had room to sit, dance and "event manage". I used cup inserts to create a more dramatic bust line. That also accentuated my waist. I'm excited to wear this designer again and use this service.

Beautiful dress, tons of compliments.

My first experience with Rent the Runway and it was wonderful. The dress was a beautiful color and the fabric was thick and comfortable. Fit well at the waist, arms were a bit tight and it was tricky to sit down in at times, but otherwise it was easy to wear and I received tons of compliment.

I rented the dress to wear it to a wedding ceremony and it arrived on time and true to size

Unfortunately I felt the dress was a bit to stuffy for a wedding even tho it was a church ceremony. I would rent it again for a company party or a corporate event not a personal fun time

Perfect Fit

The colors of this dress are so rich! It was very true to size. The fabric is a bit heavier than I expected. Fortunately, our event was indoors. I would not recommend for a summertime outdoor event. I wore it with the Daniella necklace which looked great! Went well with gold accessories and shoes.

Gorgeous fabric & design.

This dress was absolutely stunning for a spring wedding. Do get the size up or down from your normal, if you can. I have a large bust and the 6 was perfect for me, but the waist line on the dress would have looked better if it was tighter. Women with a smaller bust, get a size smaller for your back up and see how it looks/feels on you. I could have gotten away with the 4, if I had to.

Lots of compliments

Dress was a little constricting around the ribs, and was a little hard to zip, particularly at the seam. The dress had a beautiful cut that his my tummy well. It was a little hard to sit in and or bend in but was pretty comfortable all in all. The color is gorgeous!

Great structure, a little long

Me: 5'3, 140lbs, 34dd, 8-10 dresses, 6 skirts, busty/Apple shape This dress fits true to size for me on top, though i probably could go down to the 8. It's good for larger busts, and larger hips, but very fitted with no stretch at the waist. Since I'm larger on top, dresses like this (tulip shape) tend to make be look bigger all over as they create illusion of larger hips. That said the structure and cut are so nice, it doesn't bother me too much. The cap sleeves are very cute but lack any stretch so I can't lift my arms beyond parallel to the ground. It's a little long for my height; extends just past my knees. Fabric is good quality and heavy and thankfully does not wrinkle easily. This dress is probably best for hour glass shaped women and pear shaped women.

Arrived early! Loved my first experience with the app.

Beautiful and classic dress. It has a Jackie O. look to it. Size down with this dress. I'm normally a size 2, but the 0 fit perfectly. It's snug on the top though, so if you have a larger chest it might be slightly uncomfortable. This is a great color, especially for an evening event.

Didn't end up wearing it but beautiful dress!!

I didn't end up wearing it because it was too small in the boobs and I had to exchange it for a different dress in store, but for $30, this is amazing quality. But if you're big up top, definitely go a size up.

Loved the style and color!

This dress was perfect for a Fall Chicago wedding. Received tons of compliments. The dress fit true to size, the fabric was thick so perfect for a chilly evening. And I loved the shades of blue plus the dress came with pockets! I ordered a size 6 and it fit true to size. I finished the look with gold jewelry and a black clutch and heels. Loved this dress!

I generally wear a size 6 but with fitted dresses like this one I prefer to wear a size 8. Wish they had a back up in the 8, but the 6 worked with spanx underneath it.
