Beautiful pop of color
Fit like a glove and a great choice for an outdoor spring wedding! The sheerness wasn't over the top but gave it a unique twist. Easy to move and dance in and didn't wrinkle!

Great color!!
Loved this color! The longer length makes it unique. I usually wear a 4, but the 6 was def snug on me, although very flattering. Fabric was thick and seemed to smooth out any lumps or bumps. (Was able to wear without a bra). I'm 5'6, 130lbs, 34D

Loved this dress, wore it to a wedding in September!
I received many compliments on this dress. The color and style were a great match. The dress fit well, the bottom band was a little bit tight so not ideal for a ton of movement but I was still able to dance the night away.

The color of this dress was so perfect. Vibrant and fun but still classy for nighttime affair.
I marked that the dress runs true to size because it was close, but it might have run just a bit small. The color of the dress is beautiful and looked perfect at an evening affair where I didn't want to wear my usual all black. Since I'm a little on the short side, the dress cut a little lower on my legs than I would have liked, but it still looked great! This was a big change from my usual style and overall I was pleased!

Hugged all my curves in the right places. The top was a little big and I needed double sided tape to make them fit better.

This dress made me feel sexy and confident, my husband loved it!
It fit great, but is probably better for women with a B or C cup. I was able to wear a low back bra with it to give "the girls" a boost, but the material is thick enough that you could go without. The color was a little deeper than pictured, but it was very flattering on my skin tone. It is very fitted, but stretchy enough to move with you. Not the best dress for lots of dancing or stairs, but worth it as I felt incredible in it. I would definitely rent again!

Perfect!
This was my first rental - and to be honest, I was super nervous - but when both dresses arrived, I was so excited. Having both sizes as an option is huge. The Dress -- gorgeous. The Color -- more of a peacock blue than the picture. The Fit -- true to size - I am normally a 4 - got the 6 as an extra - and I wore the 4. It fit perfect. Price -- did not break the bank. It was totally worth every penny. I received so many compliments about it, and people were shocked to hear it was from Rent The Runway. I cannot wait for the next event I have - so I can rent again.

Gorgeous color & fit
This dress was gorgeous on. Fit like a glove and the color was amazing! I wore this to a friends wedding Rehearsal at the church and Rehearsal dinner. Was a total hit. This is one of my favorite rentals from RTR. Will rent this dress again! Its a showstopper, don't hesitate to rent!

Conservative, but sexy!
The sheer fabric hit in all the right areas and the opaque fabric was thick enough to hold you in while still being extremely comfortable. The stomach area didn't actually appear to be see-through (even in close proximity). The neckline, back design, length, and sheer elements made this conservative but sexy. Lots of compliments. Great for a summer wedding!

Wish I got to wear this!
I rented two dresses for a friends black tie wedding and ended up choosing the floor length dress. I loved the other dress but did regret my decision because this dress is amazing (and would have been better for dancing). Fits true to size. Can't wait for another wedding weekend so I can re-rent this stunner!

Wore this dress to a wedding ceremony at the Church.
Normally a 6/8 and only an 8 was available, fit a bit big up top but overall true to size. The color was beautiful and it is very slimming, a great dress to show off your arms.

I wore this dress my parent's "I do, take two" in Vegas and it was the PERFECT dress for it!
LOVED this dress! I feel like the photos don't do it justice. I wore it to a wedding in Vegas and it was perfect. Classy ,but sexy with a great fit. I ordered the size 4 and while I could fit into it, I felt more comfortable in the larger size. I paired it with nude pumps, minimal jewelry and an soft undo and was ready to go.

Beautiful dress but I ended up wearing the black one instead :)
The dress was absolutely beautiful. I am 5'7 and the length was perfect for a wedding. The dress ran a LITTLE small but I think that's how it was suppose to fit. I ended up wearing the black one since it fit better and it ended up being more appropriate for the occasion.

Beautiful peacock blue dress. Very flattering and easy to wear. Especially if you love to show arms.
This dress fit snug with little give. It is very comfortable and wears very nicely. I paired this dress with a pair of nude stilettos and a pair of turquoise marbled Kendra Scott earrings. I also chose a summer tangerine lipstick for an extra pop against the dress. I kept my eyeshadow neutral. I am on the short side, so the dress goes past my knees, but I feel like that adds to the drama. The cutouts and net fabric are very nice and are elegant and not at all too much. Great dress.

Comfortable and sexy
Loved the color, fit was snug (I was between the 2 and 4 but wanted room for cake so I opted for the 4), cut was gorgeous and the material was very comfortable. The only issue I had with this dress was that it was a tiny bit big on the top but I got away with it. Probably a better fit for B/C size boobs.

Perfect for a summer / spring wedding!
Color and fit were great. Runs true to size as well - fit into my usual size perfectly. Many other renters complained about the bottom of the dress making it hard to walk in, but I didn't have that problem since the fabric is stretchy. The only thing worth making note of (especially if renting for a wedding), is how easily spilled water or drinks show up on this fabric (even the smallest drops). Other than that - great dress!

The color of the dress was gorgeous and stood out without drawing attention from the bridal party.
I had previously read reviews saying that the dress ran small. Therefore, I ordered my size as well a size up. I did not need to wear a size up, I found that the dress ran true to size. The only problem I had with the fit was when sitting it was very uncomfortable since it was so tight against my legs (from the knee down). I had to pull the dress up a bit to make it more comfortable. Ultimately, I loved this dress and received many compliments. I would recommend it to anyone!

Nice dress
It runs small. I was a little surprised by the lack of dress on the sides of the bust. I ended up wearing a fancy jacket over it because it was a work function.

Flattering but not forgiving
Order one size up. Thick material yet you may want to wear shapewear underneath. Very fitted. I was able to wear a strapless bra underneath without straps showing.

SO MUCH YAS
Let it be known that short girls can rock the hell out of this dress! I'm 5'2 and wore this to my brother-in-law's wedding and it fit like a glove! I see what people are saying in reviews about it being tight at the bottom, but it's also elastic. I did a lot of moving around in this dress and walking up and down stairs and it stayed looking flawless! It hugs you in all of the right spots, but definitely requires some good posture. Got a ton of compliments and I'm pretty sure my husband wants me to rent it again. Loved it!!!

Va va voom!!
This dress was an absolutely stunning blue color and made from a great fabric that doesn't wrinkle easily. It is a little tight in the legs, so not an ideal dress for venues with stairs or getting low in the dance floor. But overall I loved it and got a lot of compliments throughout the night.

Pop of Color!
This dress is really gorgeous but it is pretty skin tight. Any undergarment I wore showed lines so I skipped those. It would have been a good dress to try Spanx with but overall, the dress was great. I loved the length and it really gave me an hour glass figure!

Flatter your figure with a pop of color!
I wore this dress for a wedding rehearsal dinner the night before a destination wedding on a tropical island. This is a great dress to show off an hourglass figure without being too revealing. I got lots of compliments on the color and fit. Thought it was very humid, I didn't get sweat marks on my dress. I did not wear a bra, but if I had to do it again I would wear adhesive nipple covers. Also know that the material is tight - not so much that it's uncomfortable in general, but going up steps or stairs will require a little maneuvering.

Lovely colour, Flattering fit
This was my back up dress after my original order didn't work out. I picked it up at the RTR store in Flatiron, NY. I was a bit apprehensive about it at first because it had a few marks on it from other people trying it on in the store and it was also a size smaller than what I'd usually wear. The store steamed it fresh for me though and it looked fine when I left. The colour is lovely, fit is great if you're tall. I haven't the biggest bust so I didn't bother with a bra, but I wore Spanx to avoid a VPL. I'm tall so this came just below the knee and looked very well. The material is a bit stretchy which might explain why I fit into the size 6.

Love the color of this dress
I loved this dress. The cut outs are stretchy which makes them super comfortable. The length was perfect for a wedding, not too short! I wore the 6 because I felt like the area around the rib cage fit better even though the 4 zipped up just fine, I'm so glad I sized up here. The area in the bust felt a tad big but if I stood up straight it felt a lot better.

Most compliments I've received at a wedding.
Might be an awkward fit if you're pear-shaped. The size 4 was more comfortable in the hips but too big up top, so I went with the size 2. I had to use pasties because my strapless and stick-on bras peeked out from the sides. This dress does not hide pudge at all. All that being said, I got so many compliments on this dress. The extra effort was worth it.

Loved this dress, the color and fit was beautiful. Not the most comfortable or forgiving though, so keep that in mind depending on the event. It is very fitted through the lower half which restricts walking and dancing somewhat.

The dress looks even better in person -- beautiful material but the color really pops!
Initially I ordered the size 4 and thought it fit, snugly and then ordered the 6 to see -- ended up going with the Size 4. Received so many compliments on the style (neckline & shear knee) and color.
