Beautiful dress! Received many compliments and very comfy
It does run large so if you get two sizes, definitely go smaller. I normally wear a 10, but the 8 fit perfectly.

Perfect for Tiffany themed Baby Shower!
This dress is super cute, but definitely on the casual side. I recommend for daytime party or nice dinner. I wore a black strapless and was fine with it. To me it blended with the mesh. No spanx needed, very flattering. I received tons of compliments and the dress is comfortable! Absolutely a winner!

Got so many compliments on this dress!
It fits very true to size. I am a true hourglass, so the hugged the right places, but also flared out around the hips. In pictures the stripes do come across as see through but it wasnt obvious in person. If you are going to wear your hair down over your shoulders you could get away with a regualar bra..otherwise go strapless.

Very cute, pretty deep V
I thought this dress was a lot of fun for a day wedding I had. The only thing was I had to wear a bandeau to prevent flashing everyone.

Cute but hard to wear.
I wore it for a work dinner and it was really cute but there were 2 issues. 1) you can't really wear a bra bc of the mesh so I wore chicken cutlets which were fine. 2) the fabric in the cleavage seemed to roll so I constantly had to adjust. Sorry, forgot to take a pic!

Perfect for a fun night out!
This dress was comfortable, and still dressy enough to go out in. I have a bit of a tummy roll, so this dress hugged me a bit in that area, however the stripes through the middle helped break that up a bit.

Very classic look with mesh cut-outs for a younger feel. Great color and cut!
This dress is really flattering for a pear-shaped person, and the mesh cut-outs add some interesting elements. You do need to wear a stick-on bra because the top comes down really low. (if it's dark, no one would notice a strapless bra, but I was in a room with bright, florescent light, and in the photos, you could see the bra. It took away from the overall effect. The material is light weight--definitely comfortable for spring through fall. Easy to move in, great for dancing and eating!

Loved this dress, thought it looked great! I would have worn the 6, but the day before the dresses were to arrive I was notified the 6 was no longer available, so only the 8 would be coming. Still was very happy with the rental. However I didn't get any photos in the dress :(

Casual dress
I unfortunately didn't get to wear the dress because even the size 0 was too big (I'm 5'5", 110lbs and 34B). On top of that, the dress was not the fabric I was expecting at all, it was more of a cotton type material so I would have felt under dressed at a wedding. The dress was also long for my taste hitting right at the knee (not above).

Beautiful and comfy!
This dress was actually a replacement dress for my order because a size was unavailable. Last minute I picked this and I am so glad I did! I wore this to a wedding with an outdoor reception during warm weather. The dress is very breathable and the color is so unique! Definitely a pop against all the black dresses. I loved the mesh top because it made the dress a little sexy but not so much I couldn't wear in a church. Would definitely rent again!

It was my first rental and I could not have have been more thrilled!
I rented a size 2 with a 0 as a back up. I ended up wearing the 0 and it fit perfectly! It was comfortable and I felt great in it.

Flirty and Fun!
This dress would not be something I would normally choose for myself, but I wanted to try something different for my 48th Birthday. The dress fit great and I felt fun and flirty, while still age appropriate for a night at the theatre to see "Kinky Boots"! The dress was thick like scuba gear, but not too hot. I wore it in the middle of June and was perfectly comfortable. I have a large chest and felt the cut looked nice and didn't make me look too boob-a-luscious!! I did add my own black belt that I felt made it look just a little bit better in the waist. Overall, I loved it and got lots of compliments from friends (and strangers) =)

So many complements on the mesh top and color of dress!
Fits perfect at the top runs a little legs in the middle but I wore spanx as well because it does show everything. Not too think wore to a hot end of September wedding. Great dress overall!

Cute but I had cuter things as back up. The waist area was a little wonky. Nice enough but not wow.

Loved the fit, super flattering!
This is a great dress! Wish I could purchase it! Very flattering and SO comphy!! I just had a baby so feeling comfortable in a more fitted dress was such a plus. I usually wear a 10 but went with the 8 because it just fit a little better. Only con I had was that the dress somewhat looks like it's been rented one too many times and is starting to fad a bit. Overall, I would rent again.

Loved this dress, fit great!
The mesh in the bust added to the sex appeal while still being classy. The dress was not clingy at all (I do not like anything tight on my stomach-trouble area). The material has some stretch and is very comfortable. The skirt length is modest and was great for all the sitting that goes on at a wedding. This was my first successful RTD dress, I have a very hard time finding dresses to fit my bust while not exposing everything, while also fitting my other curves, so having this dress was great! This will definitely be on the list to rent again.

LOVE THIS DRESS!
I originally ordered another dress, this came as a back up to a back up that I didn't like! thank god i ordered this one because this was my favorite of the 4 that RTR sent me! its A line which makes me comfortable, but they mesh added sexiness. there was not need for spanx so i was able to be comfortable the entire night! great blue color great length, very happy with the RTR Service and products!

I wore this for my sister-in law's rehearsal dinner- very comfortable and easy to wear
fit was perfect- i'm an hourglass, so i have broader shoulders, wide hips, and a smaller waist. This dress showed off my figure without showing too much! It was perfect for the dinner.

Comfortable dress that didn't meet my high expectations
I liked this dress, and my husband was quite complimentary. However, the fabric was not as structured as I expected, and it did not hide my hips as much as I was hoping. The top was very fun. However, again, the lack of structure in the dress proved problematic as the dress should really be worn without a bra, but there was absolutely no support or padding in the dress. I wore a normal, dark colored bra, which you could see if you looked closely. I can see why many would love this dress, but it wasn't a home run for me. The occasion I rented the dress for was canceled, so I ended up just wearing it to a nice dinner. It was very comfortable and I did feel special wearing it.

I wore this for a charity event and received a lot of compliments!
This dress was a little bit long and hit me right above the knee. I ended up wearing it with black tights because it was still cold outside and it ended up looking fine. The only downside is the thin material in the chest; you definitely need to wear petals or something stick on underneath! Overall the dress was very flattering and I don't feel like the mesh panels exposed too much.

Interesting and unique with a little bit of sexy. Great option instead of the LBD.
I absolutely loved this dress. I wore it to my boyfriend's work holiday party and thought it was perfect. I wore the size 2, and would say it runs a bit big. The fabric has some stretch to it and was thick enough for me to feel comfortable wearing it in December. The slit and sheer in the front came down quite low. Had it been a different event, I probably wouldn't have had an issue with it. Because it was a work event, I wore a black strapless bra. You could see the black fabric through the sheer panel, but I felt more comfortable with that. I wore a pair of black tights and black pumps with a gold accent. This is one of the first dresses from RTR that I seriously considered buying!

Gorgeous blue dress! I got tons of compliments:).
Love this dress! It was so comfortable, and fit perfectly! I wore it to my husbands BU graduation. It was a bit more revealing than I had planned on, but not too revealing that I would have to wear something else.... Just not a dress I would normally choose to spend a night next to my mother in law in ! Love it! Would wear it again! More of a date night than formal affair dress!

I loved this dress!!!
I am usually a 4 or a 6, and I wore a 2. It's tight but flattering (especially if you usually worry about how your hips/thighs look, because it flares out generously.) The transparent black mesh is very sexy. I want to buy this dress!

The backup that became the front-runner
I chose this dress as a backup dress for a wedding. The fit was nice- but it's a little casual... I'd recommend for a night out or pseudo-casual evening drinks or something. The fabric is cottony- It's flattering and had a nice fit though...

Fun comfortable dress!
Loved this dress! I got the 10 and the 8....10 was way too big in the chest for me....I think I could have worn a 6 which would have given me more support since I went braless but I was afraid it would be too tight in the hips.....I am pretty long waisted so the top stripe didn't hit me as low as others have stated and I didn't have any problems with the look of the dress....I am 5'8 so the dress was as short as pictured but was also not a problem. If you are shorter and or short waisted it may not look like it does on the model. I feel it runs true to size but my be big up top if you are smaller chested. I added a fashion belt to accent my waist. Super comfortable and very unique! Loved the color too!

I didn't end up wearing
Loved the style & color of this dress! I read the reviews which said the dress ran a little big so I was happy with the fit of the 2! I didn't end up wearing the dress because it just didn't look right on me. The black stripes starting below the hip made me look more frumpy than elongated like I hoped! If I didn't have a backup dress I probably would have worn!

Cute dress! Love the color!
This was the 2nd choice rental for me. I could have ordered a size down but was worried about the fit on top. You can't really wear a strapless bra if you don't want it to show down the center. I did not choose to wear this one to the party. It is very nice, but not as formal as I was hoping. (fyi- the purple is ponte material)

The dress fit a little large, I'm a zero, so I opted for a different dress. The neckline was beautiful- very low though.

I felt frumpy
I ended up having them send me another dress because this one just didn't do much for me. It doesn't define the waist that well and pairing it with a belt didn't help. It ran a little large so the 2 fit rather than the 4.

Everyone remarked on how vibrant the color was on this dress!
This dress was perfect for the evening wedding I attended in St. Louis on a steamy day. I have a pretty full bust, but wore a strapless bra underneath. It was daring enough to have peekaboo cleavage but still appropriate with the sheer paneling. I took a make up checking selfie, so hopefully you can get an idea of the paneling. This was my first Rent The Runway experience, and I was very pleased.

Better than winning the award
Wore this to a theater awards ceremony! It was super comfortable and the sheer paneling in the front added a level of interest without being tacky. I felt sexy and classy and was excited to wear something a little outside of my comfort zone!

I love this dress! We are the same height, where did this dress fall at near the knee? Was it above? I really want to rent it but i am worried it'll be too long :/
