Did not wear to my event
I was disappointed with this dress for my body shape. I have an athletic and curvy build and am 5'3". Unfortunately this dress was too short on my muscular legs for the wedding I wanted to wear it to so I returned it for credit within 24 hours. The shape of the dress was also not flattering; it clung to my butt, yet was baggy in the small of my back. I think my large backend also drew the dress up higher on my legs then it might for others. It also did nothing to show my figure and curves from the front or sides; it just kind of hangs and looks boxy. Cute dress, just not for me. If you have thin legs or few curves on your body, this dress may work well.

A Classy Pop To Stand Out from the Crowd!
Perfect for a summer celebration! This dress is super comfortable, and the length was perfect! I was setting up for the party and I had no problems bending down. Sitting was also a no-brainer. The lining is thick enough to hide anything, if you want to wear something underneath. I would totally recommend this to people of ALL body types! You can never go wrong with a shift dress!

Wore this for a friend's bachelorette vacation. The overall look & feel was perfect - I loved it.
This dress is true to size (I wore a six), but since it was a shift dress it made my torso and hips appear wider than they are.

Cute dress & great color!
I wore this dress to a May wedding in South Florida. The color was perfect (very bright!) and I loved the lace overlay. The dress was extremely comfortable for a night of dancing and I received so many compliments. The one negative is that it is a little boxy, so I would recommend ordering a size smaller than you usually wear and think about accessorizing with a belt.

Super cute and comfy
I wore this for my grad school graduation. I rented the size 8 and 12 (the 10 wasn't available) I tried on the 8 first and it seemed to fit a little tight on my thighs. I then tried on the 12 wit the expectation that I would be swimming in it, but was very surprised that it was just a little roomier in the legs. The bright color got lots of attention and even though it was clingy on the tummy I didn't feel very self conscious, but I would definitely wear it with spanx .

Great dress but..
It wasn't appropriate on me for the wedding I wanted to wear it to, but I love the dress! I thought that since I'm only 5'2" it would be longer on me than it shows on the model but it was still too short.

Many compliments and such an easy process!
I rented both a size 2 and 0 and I ended up going with the 2 because it fit a little looser and wasn't as snug. Very comfortable dress and got many compliments about it! At times I was worried that it felt short with the heels I wore but overall loved the dress and would wear it again!

Perfect dress for a Texas summer wedding
Wore the dress with a big Kendra Scott necklace and cowboy boots. When the dress first arrived I was real nervous because it seemed way too short and the color looked very dull; however, I ironed the hem and it ended up being the perfect length to wear with boots. It did seem like the dress stretched throughout the night and by the end seemed a little baggy. Probably could have gotten away with the 2, but how it came originally, I was real glad to have the 4. The dress may be nearing it's end of use, but it photographed well and was very comfortable.

Didn't fit
Was unable to wear this dress due to fit. It runs big, normally I wear 8 or 10 and the 8 was too big in the stomach area. Also the scalloped hem wasn't falling correct (in both sizes).

The 4 was too snug, 4s usually are on me and less it's a loosely shaped dress. Great for a daytime wedding!

Shorter than expected, but fun!
I was expecting this to be bigger on me based on the other reviews, but it ended up being shorter and tighter than I hoped. It fit me really well and looked cute, but I didn't feel as comfortable in it for a bridal shower because I was worried about it riding up. It would be a great dress for a summer wedding!

Perfect bright yellow dress for outdoor Commencement Ceremony!
PROS: Bright, vibrant yellow-lemon color! High quality lace material and overall nice construction. Perfect for my daughter's outdoor Commencement Ceremony in sunny Santa Barbara, CA!!! CONS: Sizing was a little off-size 0 was very thigh and size 2 fit a bit lose in some areas- but dress had a nice, comfortable fit overall.

Cute Summer Dress
I rented this as a free birthday dress, but didn't end up wearing because we ended up going somewhere pretty casual. The dress is a really pretty yellow color and made of high-quality fabric. It hit a few inches above the knee on me (5'3"), and I would suggest sizing UP for your back-up (no stretch). Overall, really cute summer dress - would be great for a daytime event or wedding!

Beautiful dress. Everyone kept complimenting how great I looked. Great dress for the summer.
This is the second time I rented from rent the runway. The first time the dresses didn't fit so I was hesitant to try again but I'm glad I did. This dress was great, comfortable and a beautiful color. It also photographs well. I'm short about 5'4 and didn't think the dress would be short but it was a little on the short nothing terrible but shorter than I thought it would be.

This dress looks a bit matronly in person.
The lace covers the full dress, making it less trendy and a bit old-lady like. I sent it back without wearing.

Vibrant Fun Dress
I needed a happy dress to wear the weekend after breaking up - and this one fit the bill. It's color is so vibrant and happy. The neckline is demure and it wasn't too long for petites (always my concern). It looks a bit more fitted on the model, so there was a little more room around the middle than I would have liked, but hey, it's a shift dress. Also, got tons of compliments -- which certainly helps when you're newly single.

Perfect dress for a summer wedding
The color was amazing. It really popped amidst all the darker dresses at the event. Also looked great in photos! The dress was very comfortable. Short enough to show some leg, and since lasted through an entire night of dancing.

Most Comfortable Party Dress
For a shift dress, this one is much more fitted than usual. I really loved it - it hugs enough to give you definition in the waist, but isn't clingy and lets you MOVE. The length was perfect on me. I wore it to a fall wedding - trendy but outdoor - and paired it with black stilettos and a leather jacket. I bought the necklace but didn't wear it - I thought it was a little weird/too much.

Great color!
Went to a wedding in Florida and it was HOT. This dress was perfect - looked dressy but I wasn't miserable in the heat. Got a lot of compliments on the bright color. The dress was super comfortable and great to dance in as well. Loved my first experience with RTR!

Definite attention getter!
I loved wearing this dress. It was a definite attention getter between the color, the beautiful lace, and the hem length (be prepared to show some leg!) The dress is more green/highlighter yellow than it appears to be in the photos. I had a couple of people even call it "neon green". I usually wear a 2 or 4 and wore a 2 in this dress and it was NOT tight, so it runs a bit big. I'm 5'9" so it was REALLY short on me. If it had been any shorter, I really couldn't have worn it, but I think I just pulled it off. I didn't wear any jewelry besides big sparkly earrings which I think worked well.

Unique color
I rented this dress for a party. I didn't end up wearing it, but I liked it. The color is really interesting. The dress was comfortable since it has a little bit of a stretch. The dress seemed a little short for me though. I would recommend it even though I didn't end up wearing it.

Such a beautiful dress for Summer!
I rented this dress for my best friend's rehearsal dinner in May and absolutely loved it! I was the maid of honor in the wedding so I knew I would be giving a speech at the dinner and wanted a dress that had a pop of color but wasn't too flashy and this dress was perfect! I paired the dress with nude heels and a pretty gold and pearl layered necklace. I received so many compliments throughout the night! Loved it and would recommend this dress to friends!

I enjoyed it.
This was a beautiful dress but a bit shorter than I anticipated. I'm pretty tall and have broad hips so this in unlikely to be a common problem. Thankfully the top was conservative enough to make up for my self consciousness about the length. The fabric was lovely and it was a very comfortable dress, but I won't try anything else in this type of style and length unless I want to wear leggings.

Perfect for an outdoor, summer wedding!
I fluctuate between a 4 and a 6 in dress sizes - the body of the 4 fit me better, but I felt that the arm sleeves were a little tight so I sized up to the 6 because I belted the dress anyway. I'm not a huge fan of sheath dresses, but with the belt it was perfect! I found a gold plated belt (+ black necklace) from H&M that completed my look and I got a TON of complements on the dress! The only con was that the lace edging on the front of the dress flipped up & in after about an hour of wearing it (so the edging disappeared on the front of my dress). That didn't appear to be a problem with the 4, so may have just been the 6, but even after ironing it still wouldn't lay right throughout the night. Overall it was a great rental though, and I loved it!

Beautiful color!
I wore this to a California rehearsal dinner. Definitely a loose fit, which is to be expected of a shift dress, but the downside is that in some pictures it gave the appearance of having a belly. For that reason it wasn't one of my favorite rentals, but I did love the color and the fabric of the dress. It was comfortable and had plenty of room to eat! Size down for this one.

Perfect for an outdoor summer wedding
I received sizes 6 and 4 and ended up wearing the 6. The arms in the 4 were a little tight. This dress was SO comfortable and truly stunning in person. I wore this to an outdoor summer wedding and it was light enough that I wasn't warm, but the fabric was just heavy enough that it covered any lumps and bumps. I paired it with a coral necklace and got compliments all night. I would rent this again!

Pretty, but showing some wear
I ordered this as my backup dress, and the fit was fine but honestly the dress I received was a bit too worn and not quite as nice as I was wanting. The lace on it was overstretched and seemed like it needed cleaning. The color is definitely bright and poppy; very cute. The lining in the dress was t-shirt like material, which seemed odd. Definitely stretchy so don't order over your regular size. Luckily, the dress I had wanted fit ok so I did not end up wearing this dress.

I felt like a hottie all night!!
I wore this dress for my bachelorette party and it was PERFECT! The other girls wore dark colors, so my bright yellow dress totally stood out. I was happy that it left a bit of room in the waist/tummy area so I could eat dinner without fear of looking preggers! The sleeves aren't too tight and allowed room to breathe. The description of the dress says that it can be worn with a standard bra, but I found that I didn't need one (and I have a sizable chest). Bra straps would show through--unless you wore a nude or strapless bra. I got lots of compliments on the dress and would definitely recommend it to others!

Bachelorette Party
This was a replacement dress that RTR sent me for a bachelorette party. Unfortunately, it didn't make it in time for me to wear it to my event, but I tried it on the next day and it was truly a shame it didn't make it because it was perfection!

casual outdoor wedding
I am usually a 6, sometimes a 4 or an 8, depending. I ordered the 4 & 6 based on the reviews that described it as a boxier fit. The 6 fit me, but was SHORT. For real it was short. I called Friday morning and they overnighted me the 8, which was much better, still short, but much more wearable. The 8 got to my place on Saturday morning with about 7 minutes to spare before I had to leave. Overall the dress was a great color on me, and other than being short, the 6 and the 8 both fit nicely. It was very comfortable. Great customer service from RtR.

Great dress! Definitely on the citron side of yellow, but looked great in person and in pics.
Size ran a little large, but the 2 fit perfectly. The lace at the bottom was a little off on both dresses and required some pressing, but then I got it to cooperate and lay right. Had a wonderful time and you can also see two other lovely ladies in their rented dresses too!!! Perfect for a summer wedding!

Vibrant yellow for a wedding reception
I chose size 4 with size 2 as backup. I ended up wearing the 2 as the 4 was a bit loose. I would recommend sizing down for a backup. The dress fit well and was above the knee for me. Some cons were the tight fit around the arms and the frayed hem, probably from wear and tear. Overall I loved the dress and would order again.

Pretty color- seems too worn though.
It was a little shorter than I had expected when I first put it on, but it stretched out throughout the night. I loved the color and look, but it seemed too worn. The lace on the bottom seemed kind of dirty and wouldn't lay flat. I wanted to wear the 10 for the length, but there was a large hole under the arm, so I wore the 8. It was a cute dress, but has seen too much wear.

I loved this dress! Rented in both the 4 and the 6, the fit of the two was very similar. I opted for the 6 for just a smidgen more length.

Too Short
I was so excited for this to come in and wear it to my friend's wedding, however, both sizes I ordered, a 2 and a 4 (I normally wear a 0 but I am 5 months pregnant now so I ordered a 2 and 4 which both fit perfectly everywhere)- but they were both WAY TOO SHORT! I am just over 5'6 and the dress came down just below by butt and was way to short and inappropriate to wear. I couldn't wear this dress and had to return it the next day and get a refund credit for it.
