This dress photographs REALLY well! I wore it to a fashion show and it was a hit!

Runs a little small. I usually wear a 4-6 and had to wear an 8.

Way too small size up and it flares out a lot so make sure that's what you want. Nice fabric.

Size up, maybe even two sizes. I usually wear a 0 and I couldn't even get close to zipping this thing up.

Beautiful dress! Felt like I was wearing a Van Gogh painting!

This is probably my favorite dress I've ordered from Rent the Runway. The fabric is absolutely beautiful and photographs very well. I got compliments all night!

Way too short

Beautiful fabric and design! But when I put it on I was saddened by how short it was. I'm 5'11" and the dress stopped at my bum. There was no way to make this work. Great dress for shorter ladies.

The dress was beautiful and very colorful

The dress ran a bit small through out the chest and ribs which made it difficult to zip. It was very comfortable in other areas and the hidden pockets were a dream (hiding lip stick and car keys).

Beautiful Colors!

I ordered this dress as a backup and did not end up wearing it. The dress was a nice fit and flare style and the blue-green colors are beautiful in person. The top is a little big in the chest area (material gaps out and doesn't lay flat) at least for a petite 32B. The dress is definitely short, even on someone who is 5'0.

Cute but didn't feel comfortable.

This dress is cute but very short. I am 5'6 and there is no way I could have worn this without tights, it was just too short.

I felt very pretty.

The size 4 is more like a 2. The size 6 is better in the waist but there was a little extra fabric in the bust and I'm a busty gal. The dress itself is beautiful. Well worth renting. Just err on getting bigger size than normal because the waist is not forgiving. Luckily, it's an incredibly flattering cut once you get it on.

The colors were gorgeous!

I'm only 5'1" and the length was perfect. I was looking for a shorter dress and this was it. I have a smaller chest and it fit great around the chest and rib cage. It was very flattering but not too low or too sexy.

Flirty, Fun and Girly

This is a great dress if you're petite. I am not petite but also not toweringly tall. Luckily I wore sparkle tights under this dress so it worked out ok but it's REALLY short. Other than that, it's a pretty fabric and I loved the lace.

Loved the dress!

The dress is beautiful! I wore it to a News Years Eve wedding and received many compliments. The dress runs a little small, I normally wear a 12 and this one was a bit tight in the chest. The fabric is very nice quality and lace was pretty. The dress is on the short side so I wore tights. Overall I was happy with it!

Loved it! So many compliments! Pair it with a necklace

Was a great fit. No bra necessary if you do decide to wear a bra you can't see it. Wasn't itchy nor uncomfortable! Colors are darker than the pic they show you. Wasn't too short and defiantly pair it with a bright necklace to give it some pop!

Great party dress!!

Not a dress I would really want to own, but was a great party dress. I am 5'2, and it was pretty short on me but not too short. Really thick, but pretty comfy.

Best Friend's Wedding

This was a great dress for a wedding. The colors really stand out in the sunlight. It fits snug in the waist and flairs out pretty big, so you cannot be worried about looking wide it definitely adds volume to your hip and back side, but that is also what makes it look flirty and fun. I loved it, the lace detail, rich color & material really made it feel like a special dress. I received a lot of compliments and would recommend.

Great dress for a fun party.

It was a bit snug through the bodice, but comfortable once zipped up. The pockets were a great bonus.

Loved the colors and shape!

I loved the colors and shape of this dress. The material is very thick so it is very structured. The colors are beautiful. I ordered the sizes 4 and 6... the 4 was way too small and the 6 was snug but I was able to zip it. I couldn't wear a bra with it but since the material was think, I didn't need one. The hem fell to about 2 inches above my knee. I received many compliments!!

Beautiful and comfy dress

This dress ran slightly small but not by much. I ended up wearing the 6 (usually wear a 4) because I couldn't zip up the 4 while still breathing. I didn't have to wear a bra due to the material thickness which was great as a bra would have made my boobs inappropriately big for this event and dress. The pockets were fun. Being petite, the shoulder straps were somewhat too big. They didn't fall down much though. The dress was clearly worn many times. The lace fringe was worn and there were part of the dress that were worn and fraying a bit but you couldn't see it unless you were up close. The bag also didn't come with zip ties to close it back up and there were old plastic dress bags left in it.

Loved this dress. Great for dancing.

Dress runs on the small size. I rented 0 and 2, ended up wearing the 2 and it was snug. The plus was I didn't need to wear a bra. Love the fabric and the length.

This dress is fabulous...perfect for a wedding!

This dress is made from very high quality fabric and is very flattering. The upper portion is very true to size, the skirt was a bit big on me but I don't have much in the hip department. If you are busty I would recommend ordering your second size, a size larger. I could have gone with the 8 if I weren't so broad

Cool texture, thick material. Overall, really fun dress! I wish I owned it.

Some of the lace near the trim seemed a little well-worn, but that might have just been from travel. It was an amazing dress! I wore it to a wedding in NOLA and it was perfect.

Stylist Review

Super cute dress however it runs very short! I would definitely size up for the backup size and to give some extra length to the style. It is the perfect option for a cocktail party or wedding. The comfortable room at the hips makes it great for any body type and the fuller skirt makes it flirty and fun!

So cute!

I wore this dress to a wedding and got so many compliments! The fit was great and it was super comfortable. It shows a little bit of cleavage but not too much. This dress could be a little on the short side for someone who's taller. It's bright colors look amazing in pictures! By far my favorite rental to date. Would definitely rent again! <3

Cute and fun dress!

This dress was perfect for a late afternoon/evening wedding. The pattern was cute and I loved the pockets. With regards to fit, I usually wear a 0 and that seemed to fit well although the waist area did feel a bit tight after I ate dinner. The length is definitely on the shorter side. I'm petite and the dress was short (although still appropriate) even on me.

Wonderful cut, color and statement!

I loved the color and cut of this dress, down to the lace detail. I'm usually a size 6 or even a 4, but wore an 8 in this dress. It's a little on the shorter side, which could be a problem if you're really tall. I think it would be flattering on all body types!

It was a little tight in the chest which is why I ended up going up a size!

Fun dress!

I rented this dress for a wedding in two sizes (a 2 and a 4). The 2 fit perfectly! However, while modeling the dress for my husband, I noticed that the seam of the dress near the bust was ripped in two separate places. I tried on the back-up size, but the straps were too big and kept sliding down. I called RTR to explain the situation and they overnighted me a replacement dress in the correct size. The replacement dress's zipper was finicky and kept getting caught. Besides that, the dress was comfortable until after I ate dinner and drank cocktails when it started to feel slightly tight. Overall, I liked the dress and received plenty of compliments.

Fun, stylish and super flattering!

Rented this for a summer wedding, and it worked out perfectly. Love the color and material--very multi-seasonal. For full busted ladies (such as myself) I would recommend sizing up for backup. I ended up wearing my backup size 10 because my boobies were just too squished in the 8. Loved wearing this dress!

Love love love

I wanted to keep it! It was a toss up which size worked best for my breastfeeding boobs, but in the end I went with the 4 since the straps on the 6 were too long and caused awkward puckering when sitting. Did have to use fashion tape to keep my bra from showing. I'm 5'3" and it was a perfect short -but -not -too -short length on me. The colors are beautiful and vibrant, and the lace detail at the neck was lovely and in good shape. I got compliments all night.

Chic + SO Comfortable

This dress was perfect for a lot of reason - one being that it's great for petites! Other bonuses: no bra necessary AND it has pockets. The dress really holds secures you in in all the right places, but is fun and flirty with its skirt. The material is fantastic - really makes looks and feels expensive. I got compliments ALL night long -- even from the bridal party! Some girls came up to me more than once. They were really excited when I told them that they could rent it, too!

I received so many compliments on this dress!!

The dress was very flattering and I loved wearing it! It had pockets which made it fun too! If you have a large bust I would go up a size and it still is not too large in the midsection. It fit very nicely and I would recommend this dress to anyone who has a formal wedding to go!

cute dress, fits well, very low cut

Decided not to wear this dress as it was too low cut for the occasion. The dress seems to have been worn a lot. If you're looking for something new and fresh, this isn't it.

Felt like a million bucks

This dress is BEAUTIFUL. The pictures on the website do not do the colors justice. I felt so beautiful in it, and it wasn't too low cut that I felt uncomfortable at a family wedding, and I have a pretty big chest. Absolutely loved this dress and wish I owned it. Paired nicely with black heeled cut out booties and statement earrings -- no other accessories necessary.
