Perfect form fitting spring dress with a pop of color!
I ordered this dress for a spring wedding at a warehouse like venue in the city. I loved the fact that it was neoprene type material--thick enough material to smooth you out but not hot at all. The colors were fabulous and vibrant--orange and violet. This runs true to size! I was sad to return it!

Fun dress!
Great dress that unfortunately I did not end up wearing because spring got so cold and the print/colors seemed out of place for everyday wear. Will def rerent in the summer!

Very flattering dress, but too form fitting for me
I got this dress after my first choice was unavailable. It is impressively flattering! Pretty colors and amazingly comfortable. Definitely would travel well. And it could easily be dressed up or down. But in the end, I chickened out and didn't wear it for my event. It was just too form fitting for me. My husband and mom were disappointed. :) Maybe for another occasion! But I also didn't love the smell -- it really smells like you are wearing a bathing suit! I got both the 0 and 2, and the fit was extremely similar. Maybe a little more room in the 2, and possibly bigger arm holes, but either would have worked for me.

Easter dress
This dress runs a little small but it's made out of neoprene so it should be quite fitted. Sizing one size up should be fine. I wore this for Easter with a blazer and received tons of compliments.

Super Small Dress Even with Ordering One Size Larger
This dress is cute and has thick fabric, but it runs very small. I generally wear a 4 instead of 2 because I prefer my dresses a bit looser for work. I order a 6 in this dress so it would fit loosely, but it was skin tight. Too tight for work, but okay for date night.

It was so easy to order and shipped fast.
The dress quality is amazing ! I'm very skeptical about dresses because I'm curvy and it's hard to find dresses that compliment me the right way but this fabric is amazing ! Hugs the tummy and hips all in the right way ! I recommend this dresses on a date !

So comfortable!
This fit like a neoprene glove. It really was amazing, and I got plenty of compliments. My only complaint is that it wasn't very forgiving in hugging the not-so-great areas, but well... Spanx make up for lots of that. Overall, I loved it and was very comfortable all evening. It runs true to size, but has some stretch so it easily accommodates different body types. it did cut in just a tad at the front of the armpit, so I found myself adjusting that from time to time, but that was more from consciousness of how it looked, because it wasn't uncomfortable at all. Great dress overall!

Great florals
The colors on this dress are great. I loved the orange and the purple. I wasn't wild about the v-shaped seams down the front, and it did smell a bit like a wet-suit. This probably wasn't the right shape/style for me, I have hips and a rear end, so I felt a bit lumpy - but I'm guessing no one else noticed. I also tend to prefer dresses that are more a-line. The 4 fit, but showed every lump, the 6 was much more flattering, though I still wore Spanx.

Flattering material and pretty pattern
I wore the 8 but could have worn the 10 if I didn't want it to be as skin tight. I wore spanx so I was all held in but it really showed everything! Definitely sexy while still being covered up!

Love the fit and the style!
I ordered a size up based on reading the reviews and since I was wearing it to work. I'm glad I did - I think it would have been too tight and not work appropriate if I had gotten my usual size 6. I paired the dress with a navy blazer and dark blue shoes and it looked great! Loved the design and the scuba material was comfy. Would definitely rent again!

Dressing Up For A Beautiful Fall Wedding
Like other reviewers have said, the dress was very body hugging and made of neoprene. It was stretchy and comfortable but was also very tight to my body. I never wear shapewear products but I bought some control top pantyhose to wear with this dress because it showed every lump or underwear line and I was also going to be outside during a fall wedding. I don't know if it was the dress or because of the pantyhose but it seemed to creep up and I found myself pulling the skirt down throughout the evening. I also liked that it was a nice length for being a taller woman. I liked the print and colors of the dress and also got some compliments on it, including one saying that the dress was "made for me".

Fits like a glove and the pattern is fun.
The only aspect that I didn't love was the cross stiched "v" on the front of the dress. It sort of cheapens the overall feel of the dress.

It was a Holiday soiree' and I am still receiving complements on the dress
It was great that two sizes were sent, I knew I had lost weight, did not know how much, and did not have time to figure it out. The surprise earring were perfect, I would never have picked them on my own.

Great color, nice fabric!
This was a backup dress as the one I ordered was damaged and would not be available. RTR, as always, did a great job of getting me plenty of options. I am usually a 4, but this was a 6. The 4 would have been a better fit, but the 6 was just fine. This dress has a neoprene (scuba) fabric so it hugs in all the right places. The pics do not do the color justice, the color is beautiful! No necklace needed: earrings and bracelets are all you need!

Fits like a glove and so comfortable.
I loved this dress and got many compliments. It fits like a glove so if you want it a little looser I would order a size up for the second dress. I've dubbed this dress the wetsuit dress. The material feels luxurious and is amazing. This dress hugs the body but was comfortable to walk, dance and sit in. I'm tall and the length was perfect. It did ride up a little when I walked and danced. I would totally wear this dress again.

Wanted to wear this to work but ended up returning it
This dress doesn't look like it but it is VERY form fitting. The material is scuba like and very comfortable but it contours to every inch of your body and is not forgiving. I got it to wear to work but it was too tight to feel comfortable in an office setting.

Playful yet conservative, perfect for a fall wedding. The thicker material really helps as it was 45F that day. Very firm fitting.

Definitely get a size above. This wet-suit like material clings like a creepy ex boyfriend. I am 5'4'' and it was the perfect length for a wedding- good to dance around in without riding up.

The dress runs very small. I usually wear a 2, but even the 4 was very tight. The dress is of good quality and I love the print, but beware that it is skin tight.

Beautiful, flattering, and SEXY dress
I ordered two dresses for a wedding and this was one of them. I didn't end up wearing it because the other one was better suited for the event but I LOVE this dress. The colors are bright and it's not too short. It hugs the body (not really a shift dress like in the pictures) and it makes you look incredible. Very comfy. Will rent again

It's pretty tight, and I actually wore the larger size based on what other women had reviewed. The material is also thick and keeps you warm.

Wasn't the most flattering dress.
I love RTR but didn't love this dress. First - it's made of this weird scuba material which makes the dress look kind of cheap. It does hold in all of the curves you don't want hanging out - which is great. I wore a 0 and am normally a 2/4. I'm not sure if the dress was just stretched out from use or if it runs a little big. Also - if you are busty, the dress kind of flattens your chest. I wore a padded bra (and I'm a DD) just to have a little shape. The one good thing is that it was comfortable and easy to dance in.

Very nice dress. Sad it didn't fit.
I love this dress but it was too tight around the bust to wear. I was worried about this so I checked reviews of similar bust size and I did not see that they had a problem. I am a 34 DD, so I would size up next time.

This dress seemed tight, but when I tried on the next size up, it fit almost the same. It is very stretchy - like someone said - it feels like wetsuit fabric. Very fun dress. Comfortable too. I would buy this one.

I like the dress just not on my body type. I have hips and junk in the trunk so I decided to wear the six. Seemed like every time I walked I had to pull the dress down. Other then that it was a beautiful dress.

I felt like a movie star!
I LOVED this dress! The color, the fabric, the length, everything about it was perfect! I got endless compliments and it truly made me feel confident! A girl during mass came over to me while offering peace and asked where it was from! I simply replied "Rent The Runway! Their the best!" I generally don't wear fitted items as I struggle with my midsection and tend to wear more "flowy" dresses but this particular fabric was very forgiving! I would absolutely rent this dress again and recommend it to anyone!

It was very forgiving but very body con. I didn't end up wearing.
The 'scuba' material definitely held things in. However, I just had a baby and 'the girls' are a bit out of control at the moment and I felt like it was too body conscience for the event.

Nice dress if you're looking for something that stands out
This dress was not one of my favorites but still did the job. It's quite body con so it molds to you (which can be appealing or not depending on your body shape!). The colors are bright, which is also a personal preference thing. Overall a good choice and would recommend i

First RTR! So many compliments!
This was my first Rent the Runway experience! All of the reviews and pictures made me feel very comfortable about renting for the first time for my friends rehearsal dinner. I received so many compliments! The material is a lot softer than I imagined and very stretchy/forgiving. They were out of my backup size (size 8) and I'm pretty 50-50 between size 6-8 so I was a little nervous that the 6 would be too tight. Luckily, it worked out fine. I was pretty bloated that night so I did wear spanx but if that had not been the case, I definitely could've gotten away not wearing them. Loved loved loved this dress! I paired with black heels and gold hoops and was set!

WAY too tight and not flattering if you have ANY curves
i'm hardly voluptuous but this dress made me look awful. if you have any chest avoid this dress, it might be cute on very small, thin girls but that's about it. the fabric is very thick too - i was going to wear it to a summer wedding and i think it would be miserable above 70.. i returned this immediately.

Super cute and comfy dress, great for a summer wedding by the water!
The colors and pattern are beautiful, and the scuba material has a lot of "give" to it - great for eating, lounging and dancing in. The fabric is on the heavy side, which was great for my event because there was a bit of a breeze, but it wouldn't have been too hot even without that. The size 2 in this dress fit fine as well, but in the end I decided to wear the 4 to get a little bit more length (I had a small waist and bigger hips, so fitted dresses tend to be a little shorter on me) and because, let's be honest, I knew I was going to have a bit of a food baby by the end of the night, and I wanted to give it room! A couple of minor cons: zipping up the back can be tricky if you're doing it yourself. If you zip halfway up the back and then let go to grab the zipper from the top and pull it the rest of the way up, the zipper will unzip itself in that half second transition - it's just the nature of the material since it's so stretchy. If you do some arm contortions or enlist a zipper-helper, you're good. Also, it's tough to see in the photo, but there's some black contrast stitching in a V-shape on the front of the dress that extends from the neckline down the torso (it's decorative, not holding anything together). I didn't notice that when ordering it, and it made the dress look a little more casual than I had planned, but it still looked great. If I owned this dress, I would absolutely wear it again

fun print, but tighter than I expected
Loved the print - but it was a lot tighter than I expected and ended up looking too dressy for the occasion (I wanted to wear to wedding rehearsal dinner). I wear a 00-0 and the 2 was very tight - so i would def order 1-2 sizes up than you think you'll be.
