The Color of the dress was wonderful! Very comfortable, being strapless, lots of compliments!

I wore with a regular strapless, cute pockets, heavier material, so great for formal, colder seasons The zipper got stuck towards the top of dress

If you want to make a statement, wear a dress that moves. This one is the cha-cha & hip-hop in one!

Love the pockets. They made for fun photos. The swing allows for an elegant silhouette. If you want to feel like a princess, this dress is for you.

Cute dress!

This dress fit very true to size, it looked great in the front but made me look kind of boxy from the back because of the pleating. I ended up not wearing this dress.

Felt like a princess!

Full disclosure, this was not my first choice dress, but I ended up loving it! I had previously reserved a different Cynthia Rowley dress of the same style, but different fabric. Based on the reviews of that dress I sized up, which was a mistake. The excellent and responsive team at RTR sent me this dress overnight, in the correct size, as a replacement. Moral of the story, get your true size. Initially I was apprehensive about the color...I don't consider myself a 'pink person', but it ended up being perfect for a spring wedding. A received endless compliments, from people of all ages. The bride's grandmother even approached me and wanted to feel the fabric, it's very unique and pictures do not do it justice. It is a heavy weight fabric, so I wouldn't recommend for a summertime event in a warm climate. I'm so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and gave this dress a chance!

Black Tie Wedding - received many compliments!

This dress is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for a formal affair (wedding). The fabric is thick and the dress is well made, but does not allow for much wiggle room. The 6R fit me well, without a bra, but my broad rib cage almost made it too snug. I would say it fits true to size other than that. I am 5'4" so the train did drag the floor, but it was not an issue. Definitely recommend, this was a great dress!

This dress was fabulous! I felt like a princess!

The color and material of this dress was absolutely beautiful and it fit perfectly. I wore the dress with 4" inch heels and the back of the dress draped the ground a bit making it like a beautiful little train. The bust fit me perfectly so I did not have to wear a bra and never had to worry about it falling.

This was simply gorgeous. I really wish I could have afforded to buy it!

The fit was perfectly true-to-size. It has a bit of a train which is so pretty, but also requires you to take care when dancing, etc., so it doesn't get stepped on. I just held it up a bit. The pockets were fantastic as they neatly fit my phone, a small wallet, pack of tissues, and lip gloss, and none of these items bulged out or were visible in any way. I got numerous compliments and felt like a princess! I HIGHLY recommend renting this dress!!!

I could not have pictured myself in another dress for my event. It was glamorous, perfect and very unique. The dress hanged perfectly for me since I was tall. The pockets were my favorite!

Beautiful, feminine dress

I wore this dress to my senior prom and I loved it. The color was perfect and the material was beautiful. I wore my backup size 2R instead of the 4R with a strapless bra because I have a smaller chest (34B) and the dress was falling down without it/ in the 4R. I did have to pull the dress up while dancing, but it was so beautiful I can't really complain

Wonderful service with RTR

This was a backup dress that I chose after there was a problem with my original order. Customer service was great! The dress was fabulous, a smaller size would have fit better with the chest. POCKETS!! This dress had me sold by having pockets. Major plus! The way it flowed was absolute Runway material. 10/10.

So many compliments!

This dress was a show stopper. I never received so many compliments on a dress. The pockets were perfect as I was able to hit the dance floor hands free and then pull on my phone just in time for some selfies and pictures with the bride/groom/friends. My only complaint is that I had to pull up often but otherwise I was completely comfortable. The fabric is heavier which was perfect for a cool spring wedding. Amazing!

AMAZING DRESS

This dress is absolutely beautiful. I am 5'3" and wore three inch heels and the length was perfect. The train touched the ground just enough but did not get in the way. The material is very unique, definitely would not wear it in the summer as it is a heavy material. The color is pinker than the photo gives off. It fit well everywhere, there is a bunch of fabric at the waist line that the zipper did get jammed at but other than that no issues fit wise. 10/10 recommend

pretty in pink

The size 6D was a teeny big in the top. Im a 32 D/DD and needed to actually add a strapless bra to this dress to help hold it up. I would also have added large pieces of fashion tape if I was wearing to an event. I'm 5'* and had on 6" heels and you can see the length on me vs it skimming the ground on the model.

This dress was beautiful, I got so many compliments at my sorority formal!

I do have a fuller bust, so the top was a little tight (the fabric doesn't have any give). Also, I am 5'1" and I wore 4" heels and the back of the dress did still drag a little, but nothing too crazy. It still looked great! Last but not least, it was AWESOME having pockets in this dress, so convenient!

Getting to wear a designer dress to was amazing! Everyone (even strangers) complimented my dress!

The bottom of the dress does drag some depending on your height (I'm 5'5") and it can get a bit dirty. The fit is also a bit boxy but that's expected considering the thick material. Overall, I loved it! It was classy and dainty!

This dress was perfect for a Spring wedding!

I loved wearing this dress! I usually don't wear strapless, but it was very comfortable and fit well at the top. I received compliments all night, and it was super fun to dance in. The train is long, perfect length with my 4 inch heels. The pockets were a great touch as well!

Perfect for the girl on-the-go during an event! So comfy, great fit, style and color. I received tons of compliments all evening on how beautiful the dress was and how the pockets MADE the dress. It was everything I hoped for and more! Highly recommend this gown!

So many compliments!

I got a 0R, this was still a little big on me but, I'm very small in the bust and waist. We made some temporary adjustments to keep it from falling for the night. It was gorgeous! I got compliments from everyone, including complete strangers! I felt beautiful! It's interesting without taking away from its wearer. Prom was a success!

Perfect for prom, I completely felt like a princess !

I loved this gown ! I was getting compliments the whole evening! And the pockets, probably the best part! The reason why I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the zipper was very difficult to get up, because of the design of the dress it kept on getting stuck. I had plenty of room left in the dress but still needed three people to help zip it up! Other then that, the gown was stunning and I felt like a princess the whole evening! :)

Compliments galore!

I rented this dress for a gala that I was receiving an award at. I was unsure if I was going to like this dress but read great reviews that it was better in person so I went for it. I'm glad I did! Not only does the dress fit true to size, but it's comfortable for a strapless, the color is much prettier in person, the pattern made everyone want to touch the dress and it had pockets! I had people stopping me in the streets of NYC to compliment me on the dress. It also looked amazing when I walked and translated beautifully on stage. The fabric is a heavier material but not one where I felt too hot. Just felt a tad heavy to wear. All in all this is a fabulous dress and I say rent it!

Gorgeous dress!

This is a stunning dress. The material is thick and voluminous on bottom. It was a little bit for me in the chest but fit perfectly everywhere else. I am 5'6" and wore a 0R; with a 4 in our of heels this would be perfect. Mine were 3 in so the dress dragged a little. But it has pockets!

Cute, but a little too much for this wedding

This dress is beautiful, but when I tried it on it felt a little too frou-frou for the black tie optional wedding I was attending. I'm 6'-0" and curvy, so I felt like a giant cupcake, but this would probably work better on someone more petite so there is less fabric. I went with something more traditional instead. However, it was fun to try on. The pink has a cool-colored undertone to it, and the fabric has a low sheen.

I felt like a princess.

When I received the dresses, the bottom of the size I actually wore (2R) was a little messed up—someone probably dragged it around instead of lifting it up. It wasn't too noticeable unless you stare at the back of the dress. Other than that, I received tons of compliments. I recommend pairing it with heels similar to that in the photo (which is what I did) or a pointed toe heel.

Gorgeous, gorgeous dress! Got so many compliments and felt amazing.

Fits great and is very well made. The fabric is a little heavy so maybe no the best if you were outside in the heat all night.. Other than that, it was stunning.

Wore this to a wedding with a black tie dresscode.

Got compliments all night! Best part is the fabric quality and the way it moves and fills out when you walk. Only problem is the zipper is very sticky across the waist seam (even on the bigger size that I didn't wear!). You'll need someone to help you zip. Not for super hot temps.

More than a few women asked where they could buy this dress.

this was a gorgeous gown, and i'm more than happy with rent the runway. the zipper on the original broke before the event, and they overnighted me the same size that i needed. the movement of the dress is stunning. i'm 5'10 and wore, probably, around 3/3.5" heels.

Stand-out dress but heavy

This is a really pretty fun dress for a formal event. It fit true to size. It was not my first choice but was sent to me last minute when my other dress was damaged. Downsides: If you have small boobs like me you'll be pulling it up all night and the regular train dragged on the ground even though I'm 5'8" and wore four once heels. Overall though I loved it.

This dress was AMAZING!

My husband and I live in Hawaii and we renewed our vows and this dress was perfect. The fabric is a little heavier and so I thought it would be hot, but it totally was not! I'm 5'9" and rented the long and the back just hit the sand......so it was PERFECT! The zipper in the 10R was a little hard to get, but my husband figured it out. I'm pretty chesty (36 DD) and it worked very well and never fell down. I totally would rent this same dress again!

Amazing dress

Best dress ever! I got so many compliments and it was such a hit! It was a bit more formal for the event but because it was a light color, it worked really well. It was a bit long in the back but since it went up high in the front, it didn't get in the way of walking. It fit well, but if I had purchased it, I would have gotten it taken in a little at the top so it would be more snug. Had to wear a belt to make sure it didn't slide. Otherwise it's PERFECT.

Loved wearing this dress!

As other reviewers have stated, this dress is beautifully made and was so fun to wear! Got lots of compliments on something I would only have ended up wearing once even if I owned it. It's a perfect dress for a summer black-tie event.

Bridesmaid for my cousin in the Middle East, needed a pastel and very dressy gown.

Fit perfectly. Stayed up. Received so many compliments from the many international and European guests. Gown looks heavy but was light as a feather.

I loved how it had a train in the back and I absolutely loved the pockets- I carried my cell in them

The 6 fit me perfectly on top. That was great, because I have a wide rib cage, but am very very small busted, so I was glad that it fit and looked good. The flair of the material made it comfortable to wear and I didn't have to worry about eating, sitting, or dancing. I had to hold the train up a bit when dancing so it didn't get stuck, but it was so much fun having one. I had tons of compliments, and I think it was the perfect dress for my cousin's black tie D.C. wedding. Material was slightly heavy for a summer wedding, but I was mostly in A.C., so not a big deal.
