way too big
Im 5'2 and usually wear a size 0 so when it said that it was 33 in I thought it would fit just fine. WAY wrong. There's so much fabric that the dress hit right above my knees and the sleeves were a little too long as well. Although it is a shift dress it was just too much fabric. I rented an XS but gave it to my roommate who usually wears a S because it fit better on her. Size down if you can. If you're small like me don't get this.

Gorgeous, classy dress
Beautiful dress, so that it was not too 'frumpy' I wore the XS but could've just as easily worn the S. I am 5'8.5'' for reference. My boyfriend absolutely adored it, perfect for Valentine's Day.

Many compliments, unique dress
The sleeves are a lot to handle (they almost dipped into my salad dressing) but the dress is stunning, easy to wear, no fit issues and garnered TONS of compliments throughout the day.

A night of 1000 compliments!
Am an event planner so needed something that was dressy but easy to run around in and helps me to stand out so I can be found in a crowd--this is that dress! Not only that but it seemed like every time I turned around someone was admiring my dress--men and women alike. I let a few, select women in on the Rent the Runway secret...

LOVED this dress!
I loved this dress! The color is perfect for the spring time, the material is very light weight, and the sleeves add a special touch. It does run large though. I usually wear a small and I ended up wearing the extra small. I am about 5'6 and wore 4 inch heels with it and the length was perfect. I would def rent again!

Honestly, this was the most compliments I've ever received for an outfit. RTR probably gained a half dozen customers from this dress/necklace combo.
I paired this dress with the Kate Spade Cobblestone necklace and black strappy sandals. It was perfect for an outdoor spring wedding. I even had the bartenders and bridal party complimenting the ensemble. The color was vibrant and the dress was elegant and fun. Even though the sizing ran a bit big, it was very comfortable. I was afraid to go a size down because I felt the length was already short enough. The fabric was thinner than expected, which was perfect in my case since the weather was warm (in the low 80s). I would absolutely rent this dress (and necklace) again!

The bright color for a spring wedding made the RTR moment unforgettable. I also rented the green stone bib necklace to wear as an accessory.
I ordered this dress for a spring wedding and loved it! The dress runs a little large so I ordered a small. I usually wear a 6. I would recommend getting a medium if you have a large chest because the small was a little tight around the chest, but still looked great!

Gorgeous color and style. Loved dancing in this all night at the wedding!
Rented this beautiful dress for a Summer wedding and absolutely LOVED it! I had so many compliments throughout the night and was so comfortable wearing it. Usually a S but the XS fit perfectly... so might run a little big. Highly recommend!

Loved this dress!
I rented this dress for a casual backyard wedding, along with the earrings on the model and nude pumps. It looks a little more pink than in the photo and it was so cute. I got tons of compliments on the whole outfit and I would definitely rent it again.

Sixties Moment
I really enjoyed wearing this dress to a dinner dance my five year high-school reunion. It's not fitted in the body, but its short enough to be sexy and the flowy sleeves are great for dancing. I paired it with minimal accessories and got a lot of attention and great feedback!

I loved the customer service provided by RTR! They were quick with shipping and helping.
The dress is exactly like it is in the photo! Loved the color and the details of it (flared sleeves and the back). It's not as short as it is in the photo (I'm only ~5'2'') and it was a bit big (I'm very petite). But overall it's a cute dress and perfect for all occasions.

Unbelievable outfit thanks to RTR and so affordable! I've never felt more glamorous!
I've never used RTR before, and I couldn't be happier. I will definitely be using it again! I bought spanx with the outfit, which I honestly don't know how I survived without. The dress was an amazing material but still light and flowy; the sleeves are gorgeous and the picture with the model doesn't do them justice. The color was very eye catching and classy. It definitely runs big so get the size smaller... I wore the smaller one. Was concerned that the dress would look silly because I have a rather large bust, but it looked great! I loved wearing gold with it and the turquoise earrings! May rent this one again!

Ran too large... I was sad... couldn't wear it... but RTR fixed it! :-) Awesome service!
I am between a 0 and a 2 (so a 1 really! ...but that's never an available size). Sizes like XS and S scare me because they never match. This time I ordered the XS and back up size S feeling confident... only come to find out neither worked :-( I called RTR and they were super friendly and accommodating. They allowed me to ship the items back early and issued store credit. The attendant over the phone was so sweet, she was kind enough to provide me with a list of designers that run smaller in sizes and ought to work for me. She also reviewed all my pending orders with me to ensure all items and sizes I have chosen will work based on the information we gathered on this dress misfit. Soooo amazing... I can't wait for my next dress!

Great dress!!
The material of the dress causes it to stain very easily...meaning if you sweat, you can see the water stains under your arm pit. Dries pretty quickly but just know that it is very sensitive to moisture of any kind.

The perfect dress for my sorority's function!! Couldn't have been happier with this rental!
I ordered this dress for my sorority's semi-formal in the fall. I got the small and the medium and ended up wearing the medium. The small was a little too small and the medium was a little too big, but all in all it looked good. I ordered the Kendra Scott necklace and that was the perfect accessory especially if you have a smaller chest, like I do. It was the perfect accent! I'm not one to wear tight fitting dresses to feel sexy I like the more subtle sexy and this dress definitely has that feature with the sleeves and slightly higher hemline. It was just perfect!

wanted to rent again!
i didn't end up wearing this but am renting it again soon just so that I can! i'm 5'7 and it felt like a mini on me, great color for women with olive toned skin. sexy and fun but since your arms are covered it's not too revealing. great dress for fun events like parties- it was a little TOO fun to wear to the wedding I was attending. i got the 4 and 6 and the 4 fit me better- I'm usually a 28 in jeans.

The process that Rent the Runway has is fool proof! You get to spend a minimal ammount on a designer outfit and you don't have the guilt of an over-priced outfit hanging in your closet that you probably won't wear again. I have definitely told all my friends about it and they love it too!
This dress was the perfect choice for a February wedding! I was the only girl that went for color and i stood out (in a good way)! I rented the earrings pictured with the model as well. This is a looser fitting dress so it is great if you are wanting to cover up a little more and also great if you want to be able to have a good meal without busting a button!!! I would rent it again!

No no no
I got both the large and medium sizes in this dress, and neither one worked. There is zero stretch to the fabric, and I have a larger chest--which it simply did not accomodate. The dress is also waaaaaay too short. I would never have been able to wear it in public without showing off, well, everything. It was laughably short. Definitely not for tall women with boobs. Disappointing, to say the least.

Definitely not a good dress for me
I saw a bunch of pictures and reviews from other women so I got a M and the L as an alternate. Both were very tight in my chest and stomach. I ended up wearing my own dress, but it looked really pretty on the hanger :/

The dress is too short if you have a decent sized bust area.
Now don't get me wrong. i wanted to LOVE this dress as much as i did in the picture. When i was wearing it, i felt great! the sleeves are great as is the quality. However, looking through photos later, this dress is just way too short. Maybe i got the wrong size. But in the photos, it really looks like i'm not wearing any pants. Given, i do have a long torso, but be wary with this one... i would have felt uncomfortable if i was at a more formal event wearing this. I only wore it on a date and to a bridal shower.

Such a fun dress! The sleeves are dramatic and lined in satin. It's a short dress, but very flirty and cute!

we have the same measurements but i'm about 2-3 inches taller, how short was it on you? where did it hit on your legs? I really love this dress but I'm afraid to rent it!

It was an amazing night with lots of turning heads!
I rented this dress for my first year wedding anniversary dinner in Orlando. It was perfect for the occasion and the restaurant we went to. It is a shorter dress, which made it sexy but offered a nice balance with the long sleeves and the higher neck line. I would highly recommend.

It was a tea party and this dress was unforgettable! I felt like a million dollars and looked so fashionable!
I rented this dress for my bridal shower and I really liked it. I got so many compliments. It fits pretty true to size and it's a very sheer and light material (probably silk). I also rented the green earrings in the picture for a perfect combination. It's really beautiful on and I highly recommend it.

This dress was the perfect size and the perfect fit. A small seems to fit a 0-4 size range. It was a gorgeous dress perfect for the event

beautiful (damaged) dress
I rented this for a cocktail party at a Museum I support--quite a trendy, swanky evening event. I absolutely love the dress--the material is beautiful and the color is very true to the picture--a soft coral. The lining on the inside is silk and super soft against your skin. However, I was unhappy with my rental because both dresses I received (a small and a medium) were damaged. One had a run in the fabric, right across the breast area, and the other had a huge black stain on the back. Regardless, the dress itself is beautiful. However, I do suggest checking with a stylist on the condition of the dress before ordering. In RTR's favor, they did refund my order and were completely kind and professional.

Great Dress but Short
I felt great in this dress and received many compliment but had to be very careful when dancing at the wedding to be sure to not bare all! It is a bit more on the melon color side vs. a light coral. The material is very thin and shows everything so keep that in mind when choosing your undergarments. Am considering buying the same dress now that I know it looks great.
