Perfect sheath for an informal wedding & party!

I usually wear a 4 but some unwelcome lady troubles arrived that morning and the 6 was a bit roomier and more comfortable. It's not clingy so it was very day-appropriate. Dress was in great shape! I wore a normal bra and thong panties in nude--any other color would've showed. Numerous compliments. I won't be getting married again so need to rent again but I would in a heartbeat!"

Stylist Review!

Beautiful beautiful dress! I tried on the size 4 (I'm usually a size 2) and could have worn the 0 or 2. It's very comfortable and the lace is so soft! I love the zipper that runs up the entire backside. The lace fabric surprisingly has some stretch to it, which helps with the fit. The length was about mid-thigh on me (5'7"). Style it with a bright statement necklace for a pop of color!

I wore this to White Party, a charity event where everyone wears white.

I kind of cheated – I own this dress in navy, so I already knew it would fit! I love this classic dress.

My Bridal Shower

This was the perfect dress for my bridal shower. It is a classic dress but sexy and fun. I received numerous compliments on it throughout the day. I choose to wear with flats instead of heels because it was a bit short for that type of day event. The size 2 fit me perfectly, I am a 2/4 depending on brand (5'7", 125 lbs).

Loved this dress. Loved it. I'm between sizes & sensitive about it, but I felt like a screen siren.

My boyfriend loved it, my friends loved it, my parents loved it, I adored it. I don't know that the picture does it justice, but it fit perfectly, and was very flattering.

Elegant and Comfortable

I went with the 8 so that my arms would fit comfortably in the sleeves. I wore this to a white party fundraiser and it was perfect. The creamy color was softer and better suited to my completion. I really enjoyed this dress and would rent again.

Beautiful dress for bridal event

I love this dress and received a lot of compliments on it. I wanted to be sure it would fit so I went to the DvF store before it arrived and tried it on in the sizes I ordered through rent the runway. I usually wear a 2 but I wore a 4. The 2 would've worked if I were going out or something because it was tight in a sexy way that wasn't quite right for my bridal shower. The 4 was still form fitting so was perfect and comfortable. The one thing I was most disappointed in which was my own error was the color. When I tried on the white at DvF I liked it a lot more than the ivory available through RTR. I didn't realize there were both ivory and white options so it didn't even occur to me but still worked out well.

Such a great dress.

LOVE this dress. I wore it for my engagement shoot. The pictures were great. I usually wear a 2 but I wore the 4 in this dress since I wanted the dress not as tight.

Lace dress worn for Post Wedding fun in Nashville!

I wore this dress in Nashville after our wedding reception ended. The dress is more of a cream color than white but it looked great with my cowboy boots and I received lots of compliments as well. I ordered a 0 and 2 and both fit nicely. I ended up wearing the size 0 bc it was shorter and tighter. I am not stick skinny and this dress was still flattering where I do have some curves.

Perfect for bridal shower

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and it was perfect. I normally wear a size 0 and since it was sold out for my dates I went with the size 2. It actually fit really well. I wish I owned this dress!! I received many compliments

Really comfy & cute!

I wore this to my rehearsal dinner. This dress was SO soft - the lining was amazing and the size 2 was true to size. I'm only 5 feet tall and it was fairly short, so just something to keep in mind. I was a little self conscious in the dress because the material showed every curve and bump, and I didn't wear spanx, but it wasn't too tight it was just the material. Overall, I would probably have chosen a different dress because I didn't like how self conscious I felt, but I didn't have a backup and my bridesmaids gave me a little self esteem booster, and looking back on the pictures, it did look good. Just maybe have some spanx on hand if you're curvy.

Way too short for a rehearsal dinner

I got this dress for my rehearsal dinner, and unfortunately it was waaaay too short to wear around my now-husband's family. Would be absolutely perfect and gorgeous for a bachelorette though! (which in retrospect is what a lot of girls wore this dress for! I should've paid better attention!) But, the great thing is the customer service dept sent out another dress and that one was perfect.

My bridesmaid said I looked like Jackie O.

This is a magic dress. I've never felt so elegant, sexy and beautiful. I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner and it was absolutely perfect. Several people told me it could have been my wedding dress and, had it been a more casual affair, it would have been. The creamy ivory color looked lovely with pearl earrings and gold ballet flats. In the past, I rented this dress in blue and didn't like the fit as much. The blue was shorter and the zipper dip not lay flat. Fortunately, the ivory version didn't have those problems - it fit perfectly, ran true to size and was unbelievably stunning.

Incredible customer service!

I loved this so much I rented it for my Bridal shower (didn't wear though because I tried on the wrong size in a hurry) my Bachelorette party AND to change into post wedding reception. The fit was so perfect. I some how forgot to pack the correct bra on my wedding day and the dress still looked great without it, thick enough to not show anything inappropriate. You couldn't even tell!

I rented this for my Bachelorette Party - it was the perfect dress, but REALLY hugs all your curves!

Super comfortable, got lots of compliments - and very breathable. Love the length, though if you don't like super short dresses, don't buy it. Also - I lost a good bit of weight, but still felt like it hug my curves too much, especially around the hips!

Great, figure flattering dress!

I rented this for my bridal shower at a vineyard. It was so comfortable and figure flattering. I got an 8 and 10 per the sizing suggestions but ending up wearing the eight. I felt confident and bridal the whole day. I would recommend this dress to anyone!

This dress is awesome.... For girls in a size 6 or smaller.

This dress made me feel terrible. Couldn't even zip it. It definitely runs more than a size small. It also doesn't give much room in the bust area so if you're big busted like me you may want to look at other options. I would suggest the Adrianna papel dress that is a lot like this one.

Gorgeous dress, made me feel like the star of the party!

I ordered this dress for my engagement party and it was absolutely perfect. It did fit a little snug across my chest, so busty ladies beware, but otherwise it fit gorgeously. It was appropriate and eye catching all at once - just what I was looking for.

Fit a little tight so I went with the larger size so I didn't feel insecure. A little short when u sit. The back has a zipper all the way down which makes the dress unique. Super soft! Absolutely loves the dress. Very girly :)

This dress is beautiful! The lace detail is exquisite in person! I didn't end up wearing it though

This dress runs slightly large. I am usually a 2,3 or 4 in dresses and the 2 was slightly big on me. The dress is perfect for people with a bigger bust and you can wear any bra with it! It's so pretty and classy and perfect for any formal event. I wish the size zero was available the weekend I rented it because that would have been a perfect fit! I plan to rent this dress again in the size 0! The size two would have been fine but I wanted it to fit tightly! I highly recommend renting this dress :)

The dress was a tad short so I went with the larger size. It was very comfortable and absolutely for a somewhat casual wedding shower in NYC. I received a ton of compliments and it showed off my recent 40lb weight loss!

Great for an all white party

Wore this to my best friends bridal shower where everyone had to wear white. It is very snug all around and can be unforgiving. The lace is beautiful. It made my already big boobs look bigger, I'm a 32D but I felt amazing in it! Make sure you have some spanks near by for this one! Only downside is there was a tear in the sleeves when I received it. Not too noticeable because of the lace but there nonetheless.

Nice bridal shower/luncheon dress

I wore the dress to a bridal luncheon and got lots of compliments, everyone felt that the look was very bridal. Very flattering but definitely snug, I could have worn either the 2 or the 0, decided to go for the 0 and be careful to not have too big of a meal. Very fun rental!

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and I LOVED it! I received so many compliments. Gorgeous!

*This was my very first time renting from Rent the Runway! Fit: this dress "feels" classy and expensive. I felt like I was trying on a brand-new dress Pros: I felt like this dress flattered my favorite features and it felt very bridal Cons: may not be the most forgiving dress with the tummy area. I'm not curvy, but even I kept telling myself to "suck it in" during pictures :)

Perfect for engagement pictures

The fit was great and flattering, I'm glad I ordered a size up for comfortability of the arms. Unfortunately it showed up with a bit of a stain which wasn't completely noticable until we started taking pictures. In order to not have to photoshop every single one, I ended up changing into something else. I wish we could have gotten better shots in this and wish it didn't have a stain. It fit great.

Too short for my liking!

Despite reviews to the contrary, this dress was VERY short. I'm 5'5" and normally wear either a 4 or a 6. I tried the Size 4, but it was SO short I felt uncomfortable in it. I tried on the Size 6 and it, too, was far too short. I ultimately wore a different dress to the party because these were too short.

The dress looked amazing and was really comfortable!

I wore this dress for my small wedding ceremony at a B&B at 4:30 in the afternoon. My husband wore a black suit and tie. At first I thought this dress was too tight and short but when it was pulled together with jewelry, hair and shoes it transformed into something incredibly glamorous. I received a ton of compliments and am so happy I found this dress!

I wore this dress to my bachelorette party.

When the dress arrived, I was surprised to see how much more ivory the color was compared to how white it looks in photographs. As you can see, it photographs bright white, but it's really a true ivory. No matter - it was still beautiful. I know DVF runs small, so even though I normally wear an 8, I ordered a 10 and a 12. I didn't even try the 10 on because I could see that it would be too short. The 12 fit well, but holy hell, was it short. I didn't mind the length because of the nature of the event, but if you have long legs and any kind of butt, and you're planning to wear this dress for a more proper kind of evening, I'd reconsider. Other than the length, the fit was pretty great. It was very comfortable in the shoulders and arms, if a bit tight in the bust (that said, I wear a 30G, so everything is tight in the bust). In the unflattering group photo, it looks like it was tight across the middle, but actually, I had a lot of extra room in the waist. I wanted to include that photo because it highlights the one problem I had with the dress - the lining was all stretched out and hung much lower than the hem of the lace. Over the course of the night, it seemed to stretch out even longer. Overall, a really beautiful dress that I loved wearing. My friends said that my body looked, quote, "bangin'." The lace was incredibly soft and feminine, and it felt great on. The zipper up the back was a sexy detail. I dressed it down (and tried to minimize legginess) with Frye boots, but I could envision lots of shoe options. It's super versatile and fun to wear.

I felt absolutely beautiful in this beautiful dress! What a great experience.

This dress was amazing. Not too short, and it was very clean and in great condition. I got so many compliments on it and it was perfect for my intimate, casual wedding. It wasn't too tight or easy to see through, but I would definitely recommend a nude bra and undies. I loved renting versus buying and I feel like it was very good value for the money I paid. Can't wait to have another reason to rent again!

Great for wedding shower!

This dress ran a little small. I usually wear a 12 and my backup size 14 was a little on the snug side but did the job just fine. Dress is short but not a big deal if you know about it. The zipper all the way down the back is stunning!
