This dress is absolutely fabulous - incredible details!!
Rented this for 8th grade graduation Mass. While I was undoubtedly over-dressed, I felt wonderful in this dress - this was first occasion it was available in my size once I discovered it. Plan to rent it again for a more formal evening event. It obvious;ly is also an outstanding Mother-of-the-Bride dress.

Timeless, Sophisticated, Sweet and Regal
I rented this gorgeous dress for my daughter's junior prom. She has very sophisticated taste - no satin and sequins for this girl! The dress absolutely didn't disappoint. The silk hung beautifully, the beadwork was perfection - I noticed a loose strand that could possibly have lost some beading, but it didn't affect the look of the dress whatsoever. The back is loose, creating a bit of a drape effect, which was beautiful. The overall look was completely regal. Honestly, she could've walked out of Buckingham Palace. I was more than pleased. Nothing was overdone - this is an understated total showstopper of a dress. Perfection.

Absolutely gorgeous dress!!
I wore this dress to prom and felt like a princess! I received compliments all night. It was true to size for me but could definitely become very tight at waist/bust. A bit short for my 5'11" frame but not so bad I wouldn't wear it. I put 4 stars because the backup size has a slight tear and strings lose. Size I wore was also missing some beads but I didn't notice until if been wearing it for hours. Not the pure white that the picture suggests. Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better dress.

Beautiful dress
Loved the detail on this dress and it was really comfortable! The only problem I had was that the string across the back was missing and the sleeves would fall down. I'm 5'6 and wore 3.5 inch heels and the dress was a little short. Other than that I received compliments all night!

Perfect for my wedding day, does run small
I first tried it in the Chicago store to see which size fits me the best and just how it looks in general. I think for this brand a size 4 is actually 0, because I usually wear a size 0 and this dress barely fit! Around the mid section where the ribbon is was extremely tight, but I think that's what gave it the slim look. The fabric was very high quality, and the dress was seriously to dream for. I am so glad I picked this dress as my second dress for the wedding.

This dress is so elegantly luxurious!
The beading, the fabric, the quality is superb. I rented this for an event I didn't end up attending. I wish I had attended simply to wear this incredible gown. If you have the chance to rent this, I suggest it. It was quite long for me being 5'2" even with heels. The sleeves could get tight depending on how far you want to lift your arms but I didn't find it problematic. You will need someone to do the buttons for you unless you want to struggle as I did. Spanks under this are necessary because the skirt shows everything. I highly recommend this!

Both sizes I ordered were too worn out to use for the wedding. Both look old and worn out.
the top part is already dirty white in color. Some beads are missing. I was very disappointed! I was looking forward to wear this dress on my wedding, but both sizes which were delivered looked terrible. I want a refund!

Great dress
This was the second time RTR wasn't able to provide the dress I selected and this was also the second time RTR made it right. Probably for the best to be honest. Great customer service and as a result will continue to use Rent the Runway. This dress runs small and would recommend sizing up. The only reason for the minus one star was some of the crystals fell off as soon as I removed the dress from the bag. But I couldn’t locate where they came from so not a big deal.

Beautiful flowy dress!
I loved everything about this Catherine Deane dress. I initially had ordered a different Catherine Deane gown, but a previous renter had damaged it and I was notified to choose a different dress at no extra cost to me. I wore this dress for my daughter's Bohemian Dream Catcher photo shoot for her first birthday and it was perfect. Absolutely dreamy! It was only a little bit tight around my hips after zipping it up, but it wasn't too bad and I was able to move freely in it.

I received compliments all night. The dress was gorgeous!
The waist is very tiny. I usually wear a 2, but you would need like a 23 inch waist for the 2R in this dress. It was long, but with 4 inch heels it was fine. It flows beautifully when walking.

Not the right fit for me
A GORGEOUS dress, but the waistline did not hit at the right place on my long torso. Too bad, a truly beautiful dress! The skirt is flowy and lightweight whereas the bodice is well structured.

Pure elegance.
This gown is absolutely beautiful. Very elegant. I loved it and got tons of compliments on it. Only issues were it was very tight, definitely runs small. I normally wear a 0 and got the 2R for this and had trouble zippering it. It is also extremely long. I am only 5'1" but even with 4 inch heels this was still dragging.
