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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Beautiful, fun dress!
Wore this dress for a wedding and received many compliments! Color, material, and details on the dress are beautiful. I'm generally a solid size 2 in dresses but wound up going up a size because of bust. Also, as other reviewers have said, dress is a bit short but since it flares out it looks fun/flirty and not inappropriate!

Beautiful dress
The dress was really pretty and I received several compliments throughout the night. The material is thick and the dress was in good condition. The top runs extremely tight and almost flattens your chest. I wasn't able to wear a bra, but it still looked okay. It is also rather short. I'm 5'3" and it was super short on me. I still really liked it and would rent again.

So cute! So short!
I usually wear a 6, but in this dress the 8 fit me great on top!! I loved this dress but it is SHORT. So short and with a flared out shirt... I couldn't wear it as my booty would have been showing all night long!

Beautiful dress!
I just had a baby so it was difficult to find a dress to fit my postpartum body. This dress is beautiful and made me feel not so frumpy for the first time in a while. Love that it has pockets! I ordered an 8 and 12 and ended up wearing the 12 as the 8 was a bit tight in the rib area. I really needed a 10 but it was unavailable. The 12 was big but nothing I couldn't work with. It helps that my bust is extra huge right now. Would rent again when I am back to my normal size! Comfortable, easy to dance in.

Such a fun dress!
I loved this dress! I would recommend. It has pockets and is so fun. The fabric is gorgeous. I received compliments all night. I will say, the front is fairly low and the skirt is short. Since I am short and small chested it worked out great for me.

First night out post baby! Got tons of compliments!
This dress was a hit. I had actually rented something else that didn't fit and had no backup size so I picked this as a replacement. Customer service was so helpful. Also, I'm breastfeeding, so I was concerned with the fit in the bust, but it was great. Nice and tight around the waist, but enough room for my temporarily larger bust. I was getting compliments from strangers all night!

Beautiful colors!
I loved this dress for the holiday party I attended. It was bright and colorful, a great contrast to the black dresses all around. The only downside was it was extremely low cut and I had trouble wearing a normal bra with it. Overall, I was very happy with it!

Fun, different dress, great for winter wedding!
I really liked how different this dress was. It's a heavier weight, so great for a fall or winter wedding. I love that it comes with pockets and was comfortable. The only negatives for me was that the straps were too big on me and because the dress flares out a fair amount, I recommend being careful on the dance floor to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions!

Great for petites!
This is my favorite rental so far! I absolutely loved this dress ! It was so fun and pretty and girly! The fit and flare skirt made dancing lots of fun and was figure flattering. I would recommend this dress for petites as it was SHORT. I'm only 5'3" and had to watch it on the dance floor! Some reviews said this ran large but I thought it was true to size. If you have a larger rib cage area, I would recommend sizing UP as there is no stretch. And the fabric is gorgeous! Petite girls - rent this dress!

Beautiful dress but sadly didn't fit (bust runs small)
This dress was stunning but there was no hope of getting the zipper closed around my busy. I could not wear even a size up (normally wear a size 4, ordered sizes 4 and 6). I would definitely try again.

Beautiful dress but ...
I rented this dress for a wedding. After reading everyone's reviews I thought this would be perfect for me. When I got the dress the 10 wouldn't even zip up and the 12 was super snug and very short. I had to return it. Runs small so make sure you go up a size or two.

Great dress for petite figures!
Dress fit well, perfect length for 5'2" frame. A bit tight on the bust for small C cup or larger, can wear a normal bra. Would highly recommend!

Eye Catching and Very Flattering
TLDR: fit great even for a busty person and true to size. I felt like a million bucks. *****Experience***** This was my first experience with RTR and it was such a hit. $42 to wear a $440 for a night? How could you say no. I had such a fantastic time in this dress and felt so high class. The dress is a gorgeous color and it shows much better in person. It's also a very flattering cut because of the pooled skirt. I got so many compliments, and I definitely stood out from the crowd. *****Fit**** This dress seemed to fit true to size, but in my experience I've had some weird fittings in different dress sizes. I'm a between a 34E(DD)-34F(DDD) and 5'7''and typically a size 8. I rented an 8 and a 10 as per a RTR stylists suggestion and ended up going with the 10 because the 8 was too tight in my rib age and chest. I was worried it would be too short but in my opinion it was totally fine. I used fashion tape (first time user) to try and keep everything in, but it ended up twisting up and rolling off in the end. I think because I put it on wrong. Either way I was generally able to stuff everything in pretty well because the dress fits fairly snug.

I felt so pretty!
I just felt so pretty in this dress. It is definitely short but I wore some spandex shorts under it just in case. Pattern is so fun and fit was so flattering! Loved it! Also, RTR customer service hit it out of the park again. After not liking the alternate dress they had sent me, they overnighted me this dress and had it delivered in time for my event. SAVED THE DAY and my night! Such an amazing company I can't thank you enough!!!!

So pretty.. lots of compliments!!
It was very cute, but the material DID NOT STRETCH at all. I'm normally a 6 or 8 but I probably could've gone with a 10 in this dress! Nevertheless, it was cute and very classy. Love the pockets!

I am usually a size 4 but the dress runs small and I fit almost perfectly into the size 6. It was a little tight around the waist but was still very comfortable. I got so many compliments! Loved the dress and would recommend it for someone's next wedding!

Compliments all night
This dress is just beautiful. The material is very nice and the shape is adorable. I would recommend going up one size in this dress, and be aware that it is very short! I normally wear a 2, but had to wear the 4 because it is very tight in the bust area. Also, it comes with pockets! :)

LOVE THIS DRESS
I love this dress! It's comfortable, easy to dance in, and the colors are absolutely beautiful. The waist is a bit tight, so I wore a 2 instead of a 0. No need to wear a bra with this dress! I will definitely be renting again.
