Fabulous and fun dress that's different from all the other wedding guest outfits

Overall the fit was pretty spot on! Shoulders, neck line, waist and hips fit me really well. I have a longer torso and shorter legs so I thought it would be too long on me (and it was). So a long midi looked almost like a short full length! Nothing some temporary hem tape can't fix! Once it was a few inches shorter, it was perfect! (And obviously I took the tape off before sending back so it's good as new!) I'll also mention that even with a large chest, I felt totally comfortable in the dress. I wore a low bra and pinned it down in the back. I'd call it tasteful cleavage and totally fun!

The customer service provided by RTR was by far the best I've ever encountered with a retailer.

This dress fit perfectly! As soon as I tried it on I was in love. I received so many comments from fellow wedding attendants. The bride herself even took a minute to tell me how much she loved my dress! Aside from my own wedding dress, this was my favorite dress I've ever worn - by far!

Simply stunning!

Very elegant and chic without blending in with the crowd. I got this dress as my back up but decided to wear it. I am 5'6", 36 a, 125 lbs. I wore the 4.

Very pretty and flattering

Gave me a nice figure when I don't have much of a waist. A bit tight through the ribs but not too bad. Got lots of compliments.

Perfect for a fall wedding!

Definitely recommend this dress for taller ladies. I was very hesitant to wear this dress but after a day of trying it on a couple times I liked it more and more every time. The cut of the dress is made for a retro flare at the upper waist and isn't made for anyone trying to show off their lower curves. Posing in pictures in a faltering way was a little difficult due to the pleats puffing out. The fabric is thick (but not too heavy) and the pattern is lovey with gorgeous colors so I decided to go with it as my first choose and loved it! I'm 6'0, athletic and I could have worn a size 8 if they had it in stock, the 10 fit my natural waist pretty well (36B top), and I was able to wear a bra with straps without showing in the front and back. For finding your size, I would base it off of your bra/natural waist size since that is the only fitted part of this dress (pleats allow for a lot of excess room for your lower half).

The cut is classic, the print is stunning, and the compliments keep coming!

This dress made me feel like Grace Kelly! The cut is perfect --- though it does get tight around the ribcage. The dress is tailored beautifully and the fabric is thick, soft, and stunningly crafted. I got compliments all night and never wanted to return it. I cannot recommend this dress enough. It is classic and sexy! Rent it!!

RTR customer service is absolutely wonderful.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to wear this dress. I have a very large chest, 34DD but the rest of me is small so I always have issues finding clothes that fit properly. The chest part of this dress was just too small for me. I would say if you had a cup size of C and below you would be fine.

Received a ton of compliments on the dress. Unique and classy.

Loved the look of this dress! Perfect length (slightly longer than tea length) and weight. Pockets rock! Tight through the ribs and had to find low bra to accommodate the v in front and back.

STYLIST REVIEW

This dress is AH-MAZ-ZIIIING. The fabric is rich with a lush floral pattern. The colors are stunning and vibrant. I am 5'6", and the hem of the dress what about mid calf on me. Due to the length of the look, if your shorter than this, you'll need to wear tall heels to make up for the length. I paired this dress with a simple gold necklace and pale blu metallic pumps. This look is not standard bra friendly, and not recommended for girls larger than a full B cup. Over all, the look is to die for, and while super flattering, not great for everybody.

Best dressed at a Fashion Gala

The fit was great, it accented my waist, and showed off my chest, while still being ladylike. The only thing was that the shoulders were a little big on me, I have very small shoulders. But some fashion tape fixed that. The fabric was beautiful, I was in love with the detail on the flowers, and the pockets were huge! I love pockets! I was told I was the best dressed one there, by a group of women and by one of the designers. Everyone was super nice and complimentary of this dress. I totally recommend it!

Stand out from the crowd!

I LOVED this dress. It was comfortable, fashionable, and has pockets!!! I am a woman with hips and curves and I didn't find that the cut magnified or amplifies any of this. The dress fell nicely. But take care it is a lot of dress and fabric but without feeling bulky or heavy. I was able to move around on the dance floor just fine without even a fear of falling out of it due to the cut of the top. What really determines the size is your natural waist/rib cage. If you want, it's cut in a way that allows for a bra if you need more support. I opted for pasties and that worked out well in the size 6 as I'm only a 34B/C. And being that I am only 5'4", the dress was a bit longer and almost close to ankle length on me. I didn't feel like the dress was wearing me at all! The dress really was a hit for a fall wedding at a country club in the South. I don't typically wear dark colors to weddings, but the floral design gave it a fun, flirty feel. Also, I paired it with orange heels in the similar style of the model in the pictures. Because of the v-cut front, I kept my jewelry simple. I would rent this again in a heartbeat for ANY formal occasion!

Beautiful quality dress

I rented this dress for a dressy rehearsal dinner and wore with black louboutin pumps. The dress is beautiful and a very glamorous silhouette with nice substantial fabric with a beautiful winter floral print. I am a 4/6, the 4 fit perfectly with a little cleavage that balanced out the conservative skirt and tea length. Unfortunately, the 4 had a defective zipper and I had to rip it to get the dress off. I wore the 6, and it was just slightly big in the bust. RTR was great, they said they would pay to have the dress fixed but I didn't have time for that so they were able to credit me for the dress. This dress is very dressy, could be worn for cocktail or formal with the right shoes. I would consider renting this dress again for another semi formal wedding.

Feminine, quality dress with modern length - perfect for formal weddings!

Loved the sturdy, quality fabric, pockets and mid length. Enjoyed wearing this classy, feminine dress to a formal evening wedding. For those who are more well-endowed, beware that the dress runs small in the chest and rib cage.

Unique, fit great, looked amazing

I wore this to my friends wedding in September and it was exactly perfect for the occasion. I might recommend some fashion tape, you definitely can't wear a bra because of the deep V, but I didn't have to worry about it much because the dress fit great. The fabric feels really luxurious and drapes nicely, no worrying about wrinkles or anything like that. I got compliments all night long!

I got so many compliments!

It was absolutely perfect for a black tie fall afternoon wedding! This dress runs very true to size. I am normally btw 6-8 (closer to 8). They didn't have a backup size so I just took a risk, and IT PAID OFF! I would most definitely rent again. There was actually another guest of the wedding that had rented the same dress and raved about it as well.

Received too many compliments to keep track!

Fit was good but tight in the chest. I'm a DD and it was tight/a bit questionable with such a low v. But would be great for a B/C cup lady.

I did have to add a little padding to my bust to fill out the dress, but other than that the fit was perfect. So many complements! And, bonus, it has pockets!

This dress was amazing to wear! The fabric and fit are very high quality and the colors beautiful.

I could have worn the 4 or the 6. The dress was supportive enough that I didn't need a bra, which is rare for me, though it was low enough that I felt better using fashion tape to keep everything where it was supposed to be. There are pockets too! Beautiful dress. Loved it!

I loved everything about this dress

I was so excited to try a new dress from Rent the Runway. I needed a classy yet interesting look to start my New Year right. This dress fit the bill beautifully. I love the juxtaposition of the low to and the longer length. I have a small busy so I didn't have any inappropriate cleavage and I feel like the longer length really balanced the look out. I loved the way I felt all night and would be have to rent this dress again.

The fabric and print were great!

I thought this dress might end up being to long for me as I'm 5' 3" but it ended up looking great, I think the full skirt helped with this. I wore to a winter wedding and received many compliments. Overall a great dress and Pockets and floral are always a plus in my book.

PERFECTION

Stunning. The cut is perfect. The colors make it just a fall/winter standout. The length isn't too short that it's awkward, but it isn't too long it could seem to fancy. Those picked were lifesavers. One of my most favorite rentals.

Perfect for January wedding in Florida. Everyone loves it!!!

I rented the 0 and 2 because I am in between sizes. My top is a 0, bottom half a 2. The 0 fit perfect in the bust and a little snug in the rib area. The 2 was too big in the bust (that not even fashion tape could help) and perfect in the rib area. I chose the 0. It was better to be perfect in the top since it was so low cut and I couldn't wear a bra, and just suck it up and be a little uncomfortable in the midsection for awhile. I'm so glad I went with the 0, after awhile I forgot it was too tight and was having so much fun dancing the night away. Got so many compliments on the dress I didn't want to return it. Loved it! And best part, it had pockets!!!!!!

This was the perfect dress! It fit perfectly and I felt gorgeous

Zipper is a little tough over the waistband, but otherwise the dress fit perfectly and was comfortable. Plus pockets! If you're petite the hemline will fall more tea-length. I was thrilled to find my large bust actually filled out and didn't spill out of the top!

This dress was perfect!! Slightly snug around the rib age but still very comfortable and flattering. Minimal accessories needed as the dress was the statement piece in itself. I'm extremely impressed and will be a regular shopper at RTR!

Stunning dress, I got compliments all night long!

I wore this to an evening wedding, and it was just perfect. I'm in between a size 8 and 10 right now, and while the 8 fit, I was more comfortable in the 10. I didn't wear a bra, but used fashion tape to make sure the top stayed in place while dancing. It was so comfortable, I loved it and I got so many compliments on it. I would absolutely rent this again!

Perfect for a wedding !!

I loved this dress ! The 2 fit as if it were made for me. You would have to wear this with sticky cups if you weren't comfortable with not wearing a bra because the front and back have such a deep v. I am a little bigger in the bust so I was able to get away with not wearing anything. I danced all night and felt snug and not like I was going to fall out . The fabric has a nice feel, doesn't wrinkle easy. I was a bit scared about the length because I'm only 5'2, but it was perfect length. Great for when you don't know whether to wear long or short to a wedding. I received so many compliments! Thanks RTR!

Print, colors, cut, and the detail made for a memorable dress

Overall fit was snug, mostly in the torso. The tailoring and print made an elegant dress. The full skirt gave an illusion for fuller hips which I loved since I have very narrow hips. However, I do think this dress can be slimming for women with fuller hips. I am 5'7 and the dress hit right above my ankles. Although it is a longer dress, I appreciated the v-neck cut in the from in back. I wore this to an engagement party and the dress was easy to sit and dance in! My boyfriend and friends loved it!

Breath taking

Wore this to black tie gala. My husband and coworkers were wowed. Very sturdy fabric. I'm petite, so not sure hot low this would cut on average height ladies, but a bit of a low V neck. I have no cleavage (A cup) so not a problem. But may be on more endowed women?

This dress was beautiful and RTR made it so simple and easy, it showed up on my doorstep!

The dress fit well, it was comfortable. The neckline was pretty low so I used a little double sided tape and it was fine. I love the midi length, it was great for my height, 5'10".

Great fabric! Perfect for a formal wedding!

I got this dress in a 4 and a 6 for a formal wedding. After reading the reviews I was nervous about the fit around my rib cage. I am a 34B and the 4 fit like a glove! It is just sexy enough on top and very formal on the bottom. I am 5'4" and it hit in the perfect location. Beautiful tea length. I wish I would have gotten a 2 just to see if it would fit a little better. The bottom is a bit full but the fabric is so luxurious I felt like a million bucks!

This dress was my favorite RTR so far. Definitely worth the rent! I received compliments all night.

I am very small up top and was nervous it wouldn't be flattering on me compared to girls with more, but I was very happy with how it looked.
