Lovely Blue Lace in Flattering Fit and Elegant Length

This dress was an all-around winner! The blue lace was beautiful, the length was elegant and appropriate for a church setting (baptism), while the fit made me feel sexy and svelte. Highly recommend! As other reviewers point out, go one size up for backup. I'm usually a 4 and while that fit fine, the 6 was a little better fit.

Spring-y and photographed very well

Beautiful dress - closer to knee length but was perfect for my bridal shower.

Stunning color, great fabric

The dress was very attractive. It was a little more snug than I expected in the shoulders and the rear, but fit. The color looked great with my blue eyes. The cut, length and neckline were all relatively conservative, so the audacious blue color was still appropriate for a bridal shower. The skirt length skimmed my knees (I am 5'3") and I wanted that kind of coverage. Had a great time with it.

Our engagement photos came out AHHMAZING!

I absolutely LOVED this dress ! It is very true to size yet so sliming and flattering! I wore this dress for my outdoor engagement photo session and it was easy to walk in, sit in, climb in, stand in and even be lifted up and spun around in! I loved the color and just felt absolutely amazing in it. Thank you RTR!!

Gorgeous color and fit. A little long on me but I didn't care. I probably could have worn the 6 but the 8 was fine too. Tons of compliments.

Beautiful Re-embroidered Lace in Jewel-toned Blue

This was the perfect dress for the spring wedding I went to! The dress fit true to size and felt comfortable all night. The length was perfect for me at 5'10" and there was enough stretch to move on the dance floor. I was one of only a few in attendance who opted for color over navy or black and so I stood out without overshadowing the beautiful bride :)

Beautiful color and design

I typically go a size up with DVF to make sure I have plenty of room in the hips and chest. This dress is really beautiful and can transition from day to evening very easily with the right accessories.

Lovely fitted dress that garnered a lot of compliments!

Joined to rent dresses for work while I was in the process of losing weight so as not to buy a whole new wardrobe along the way. This dress wowed my colleagues and I got many remarks on the gorgeous color and fit. Despite me having a bit of a tummy pooch this dress was very flattering on my hourglass shape. Will rent again in a smaller size in the future!

A little fancy for work

If you are between sizes, I would definitely size up. There is no stretch in the fabric. I ended up wearing this to work with a blazer over it. I admit, it was a little too fancy for work (even with a blazer on top), but the length great for work. I enjoyed the dress and the lace fabric was beautiful and a great quality. The dress had two layers of lining and was even sort of forgiving for something that is mostly fitted to the body.

The best dress I've ever rented from RTR!

The fit was perfect! I wore to work and got so many compliments from co-workers and strangers. A little loose, but perfect for a professional setting. I will be renting again and AGAIN!

Great color, comfortable fit for a wedding

The dress fit exactly as I would expect, very classy and comfortable. Fitted enough to be a bit sexy but perfect for the wedding I wore it for. Would also be a nice dress for work or a cocktail party. Not a wow factor dress but the color is pretty.

Everyone was wearing Black, I rocked the Blue!!!

Felt amazing to wear this dress! Everyone asked me where I bought it, name of designer. I proudly said "Rent the Runway" and everyone was really interested on how that works. Gave the details, complimented all night. So many people said they heard about it but never actually met someone who rented. The color was so rich, well made, fit so perfect! Can't say enough!!

Blue blue blue

Great party dress. On the more conservative side. I wore the size 10 because the 12 was way too big in the chest. I have hips and a butt and the dress was on the tighter side in that area. For someone who is hourglass shaped, this dress can be a challenge to balance top and bottom fit. The color is great and length is not super short.

Snug, but not tight. Normally cap sleeves are uncomfortable for me, but was able to move around easily in this. Lace and color are beautiful.

The BEST work dress

I have never received so many compliments on work attire then in this dress. I was told to stand in the middle of a group photo because of this dress! I loved it and may consider buying it in the future. The really bad picture I posted did not do it justice but it was all I could find!

Great choice for wedding!

I am a small and curvy lady so ordered one size up from my normal size. The dress does stretch slightly which helped around my curves. Felt very comfortable all night and got lots of compliments on the color.

Beautiful color!

I rented this for a professional awards event. It was a perfect dress for the event - bright, fun color but still professional. I received many compliments on the dress. I wore my backup size so I would be more comfortable in the waist and hips. If you have curves be sure to get a size up as a backup.

Vibrant and very comfortable

My weight fluctuates a lot so I share stats for individual rentals- about 144 in this picture at 5'7. D cup, wide hips (probably about 40") and tush to go with it. Wore a size 4 and it wasn't uncomfortably tight at all, but it did ride up around the hips creating that pull as you can see. Arm holes were comfortable, didn't think about them at all. No problems dancing, sitting, it after a full meal. Silk (?) lining was nice and kept me cool.

Beautiful Bright Color and Good Fit

This dress is a show stopper. I work it for an office party, and every person I talked to complimented how beautiful the dress was. It photographs beautifully and was easy to wear. I would recommend wearing spanks if you want to have a super smooth look, but I will eventually purchase this one for sure.

Beautiful & classy

This dress was form fitting but I didn't feel like it was inappropriate for a wedding rehearsal. It was a great length - hit me right above the knee, and I'm 5'7''
