It was an outdoor wedding in the spring - beautiful!
The model's pose made the dress a bit deceiving: I thought it would be more fitted at the waist, but it wasn't. To help give myself more shape I used a black ribbon to create an empire waist. Aside from that, the dress was very comfortable, and I received several compliments!

Amazing look for my bridal luncheon!
This was a fun dress, which believe it or not was a substitute since the Peter Som Go Out with a Bloom dress I had originally ordered was not returned in time for my rental. I enjoyed the dress and the different look it provided for my bridal "Bubbly & Breve with the Bride" party the day before our wedding. I wasn't sure how the almost "poncho" look would work but it seemed to receive lots of compliments. I had to do some slight pinning before wearing it out - if you are petite be aware it may need some pinning and adjustments for your frame. I'll be honest, it was a beautiful dress but I definitely did NOT look like the model and it felt like i was swimming in it :-/ It was a good substitute- but probably won't rent again b/c it wasn't really my favorite look. KUDOS to RTR for helping me find it and their fantastic customer service - especially since I would have been without a dress for the party if a substitute couldn't have been made- Not bad for a few hours turnaround - could NEVER have done that with a store purchase!! P.S. Sorry the picture is not "full on" - we were having more fun at the gathering than worrying about taking photos!

Runs big but feminine and fun
I wore this dress to my cousin's bridesmaids' luncheon. I rented it as my $25 second dress (my main rental was for the wedding the following day). So fun to have another "new" dress for the weekend. I found it a little shinier than the photos display, so it felt a tad dressy fo a daytime event, but still appropriate. I loved the color combination. The fit was a little big. I normally wear an 8, but I saw the other reviews and ordered the 6. I could have possibly taken a 4. It was a bit "moo-moo-ish," but I had a pretty purple jeweled broach that blended well with the colors, and I pinned it in slightly at the waist, which looked lovely and gave me a bit more of a figure. Overall, I was quite pleased. Lots of compliments from friends and family.RTR made this so EASY and very user-friendly. I am quite pleased and will DEFINITELY use RTR again.

I felt fabulous!
This was my first rental and I was impressed. I wore this for an early evening wedding. Great dress for any occasion. it is classy enough for a wedding or a night out on the town. There is enough fabric at the waist and abdomen to hide what you want to hide. I'm short so the sleeve was long but it didn't matter, I still loved this dress. I am debating on whether or not to rent this again for a fundraiser.

Smashing dress, especially if you're pregnant and just showing.
I actually didn't end up wearing this dress to my event because I couldn't find my strapless bra (which is NECESSARY under that luscious silk)! I'm pregnant and just starting to show and this dress was fantastic for softening the bump, and making me feel gorgeous. There's a dress liner which wasn't mentioned in the description, so if you're really pregnant and considering this dress, remember that there's a slightly more fitting liner underneath that might not allow for bigger bumps. I rented a 2 and a 4, and even though my belly is the only thing that's grown recently (I usually wear a 2 or 4) the 4 fit beautifully. So glad I took the advice of other renters!

Dress is gorgeous, comfy and RUNS LARGE
So much prettier in person, it runs large I wear 6 normally and got the 4 based on ladies' reviews (SHOUT OUT LADIES, you were all right thanks!). Wore it with 5 inch gladiator bronze heels, my husband couldn't stop telling me all night how great I looked. I felt like a million bucks, pic didn't come out great but I assure you it is sexy but classy. It form fitted the torso, shows off your legs, but at the same time allows some distraction from the mid section so you can eat and drink the night away and not worry about your side silhouette. I loved it and was supper happy with this rental. The silk material slips and slides on your skin and helps you feel even more gorgeous, the white parts are more pearl and the colors are not as defined as they are in the RTR pic. The colors seem to blend into each other and are actually soft. Again, this dress is much prettier in person! Thrilled!

Beautiful dress
I loved this dress. I am normally a size 4, but the size 2 fit perfectly so I am glad I got a size smaller! The dress has a lot going on so I wore my hair simply pulled up and neutral shoes and it all looked great together. I received lots of compliments. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture!! Ugh.

Pure elegance!
I received so many compliments when I wore this dress! The colors are rich and vibrant and stand out among a sea of black and neutrals. The dress runs quite large; I could have comfortably gone down to a 6. Be prepared to steam it when you receive it. I wore it with a DVF gold clutch, gold chandelier earrings, and a gold 'branched' cuff. Felt gorgeous!!

I knew I had gotten a few compliments on this dress, but when my boyfriend said "Wow, a lot of people really like your dress" it dawned on me that yet again, a Rent The Runway dress was a hit!
This dress is amazing - for a hot summer wedding, so comfortable and photographs great with the bright colors. I received many compliments on the dress and danced up a storm all night! I requested the 10 but it was unavailable so I wore the 12 - I have a larger chest so it was fine and kept the one-shoulder in place, but the 10 probably would have been best. It's longer than shown on the model - unless you are model height of course. Highly recommend!

very loose
looks a bit like a dressing gown; there is a LOT of fabic on the side with the arm. Maybe if you're pregnant, but I can't see this as a flattering dress. I didn't wear it.

Beautiful and comfortable!
I love this dress! I normally wear a size 12/14 right now and ordered this in a 12, the largest size available, and then just because it was available I also got the 10. Glad I did...the 10 actually fit better. The 12 was a bit large on top - it gaped around the armpit. The dress arrived a day earlier than expected and both were in great condition just a bit wrinkled from packaging. This dress is perfect for a warm summer night. It is extremely comfortable and easy to wear. I received several compliments and just felt pretty. This dress will flatter most shapes as it does a great job hiding any flaws. Could be a bit big on top though if you are small-chested. It was also a bit longer on me than pictured. Fell about an inch above my knees. Definitely order your 2nd dress a size smaller than normal!
