Renting the earrings that were suggested. They made the outfit complete!
I rented this dress for a wedding in March, it was absolutely perfect! The fit was exact, the material was light and airy, and it was easy to steam out. I stood out and received so many compliments!! I would recommend this to everyone and even consider renting 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.

Everyone loving my dress.
I wore this dress to my sorority date party and it was a fun way to change from the normal short tight strapless dress all of the girls seem to opt for. I got tons of compliments and the rental was so easy. Plus the coral color was beautiful.

Chic vibe and super comfy! Lots of fun to wear and got many compliments! Only downside is that it wrinkled easily and not as short as I had anticipated but then again I'm only 5'0"!! :)

I had amazing moments in this dress. Rented it on a whim or a trip to The Beverly Hills Hotel in LA with a friend. The first night I was there alone and I got dressed up in this dress and went down for dinner at the infamous Polo Lounge. While waiting for my table, I took a seat at the bar. As people slowly left, and I was alone, in walked Mary-Kate Olsen. I was at the bar with her wearing her dress. I nonchalantly got up and walked over to the hostess and told her I was ready for my table and on my way back to settle the check, Mary-Kate complimented me on my dress. I just lit up inside. I wore it again two nights later when we were there and went out of the hotel with friends. It was equally stunning and everyone loved it. Plus, that night, I wore it with two colors of the same pump, one nude and one black (both patent) and I got so many compliments. Definitely a comfortable dress that stands out and is 'understated sexy.'
Great fit, super comfortable and easy to wear. 'Understatedingly sexy.' Wears beautifully.

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!

Beautiful Dress
Beautiful dress for summer wedding. Would definitely recommend using static spray before wearing it as it was a little clingy before sprayed but sat beautifully after sprayed. Beautiful color and very pretty dress! Loved it and would definitely rent again.

This dress received complements the entire night but the best was when my boyfriend saw me in it for the first time and just told me I looked amazing :)
After a sizing issue with the other dress I ordered, I had this dress sent overnight to me and I'm so glad I ended up wearing this dress! The color was great, the fit was awesome, and the sleeves added just the right amount of drama. I was super comfortable in it and was able to move and dance the night away with ease. I paired these with simple accessories and berry color blocked heeled sandals. I really didn't want to have to send the dress back but I'm thinking about purchasing one because I loved it so much!

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!

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!

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.

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!

beautiful dress....
loved the style of the dress... but it was VERY short... I'm 5-8 and felt it was too short to wear as a dress... I had to put a pair of white pants underneath it.

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.

The experience was perfect, the dress arrived on time and the night was perfect. Everyone was complimenting the simple elegance of the dress!
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

So lovely...but very short
Beautiful soft fabric, great color...but I couldn't wear spanx because the shorts peeked out. Sitting was also a challenge, fortunately I made it work and it looked great.

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.

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!

Great Dress!
Great dress! I wore it to a fashion show and it worked perfect. I paired it with nude shoes and turquoise jewelry and got tons of compliments. Definitely fits true to size. It's a little pinker in person than in the picture, but still a beautiful color.

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...

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.

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.

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.

Loved it!
Such a fun dress! The sleeves are dramatic and lined in satin. It's a short dress, but very flirty and cute!
KatieAugust 26, 2012
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!

Hi Katie! The model wearing this dress is 5'9, so this dress should hit you about where it hits her, mid-knee!

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.
