Loved the fit and color!

Loved this dress. Wore the 2 and fit perfectly. It definitely shows your body so I didn't eat the cheeseburger I had planned on eating before the wedding ;)

The dress was perfect for a summer time wedding in Chicago! Very light and perfect color!

Fit was true to size. Fitted through out. I got a ton of compliments on it. The only probably I had with it is the slit part of the dress kept riding up so I needed to pull it down. I am 5’7 with wider hips and a 6 fit great! Be prepared to either wear spanks or nothing under the dress because the material will show lines. I was able to wear a strapless bra no problem though! Literally loved it!

I couldn't wear it, didn't fit :(

The dress actually didn't fit to the point where I could not wear it to the event. Just not suited for my body type (small bust, long torso, big butt). The dress is cute but probably better for a shorter, bustier lady.

LOVED this

I️ absolutely loved everything about this dress, it fit almost perfect to size and the color was beautiful. The top was a little loose and slit does come up a little high, but I️ felt confident while still comfortable!

Love the color!

I absolutely loved the color and it was perfect for an outdoor June wedding in SoCal! The slit in the dress did help me feel a little bit cooler, but the spanx that I was wearing showed (power panties shorts). So keep that in mind if you plan on wearing spanx. I am 5'2" and the dress wore like a midi dress which I didn't mind at all. The ruffles gave it a nice fun appeal. I am usually between a 4 and a 6 and opted to get the 6 due to a previous rental from the same designer. The 4 would have been too tight on me and would show everything. I would definitely rent again!

Got so many compliments and felt so elegant!!

I am super short (5’1) so the slit was not a problem for me when i sat down but i could anticipate it being that way for those that are taller. pack a wrap to cover for when you sit.

If I could rent this a million times I would!

Didn't want to give it back! The reviews are right that it does run small. I'm usually a size 4 but I got a size 2 and it fit like a glove! It was comfortable and easy to move in. The color is so gorgeous and unique. I was afraid it would be too long on me being 5'2" but it was perfect!

Pretty in periwinkle

Pros: my boyfriend's jaw dropped the ground when he saw me. Fits true to size. Was worried the dress would be too tight since I'm not super skinny but everything looked great! No cons. Wore a shawl to tone down my cleavage at the ceremony. Paired with ear crawler earrings (via RTR!) and colorful shoes since the dress was a solid color.

I think a 2 would’ve fit better, i had to pull it up a lot in the bust area.

Awesome dress, I got compliments on it all night. The slit may be a little high for some people (especially if you plan to do a lot of dancing) but I was fine with it. LOVED this dress!

Unique and gorgeous!

This dress was perfect for a summer wedding. I got so many compliments and it was super comfortable to wear all night. It fit true to size, a little snug around the thighs which caused it to ride up a bit when dancing but nothing major. The slit is a little high when sitting but on a shorter Girl it is perfect when standing, adds just the right amount of flair to the dress.

Super sexy yet classic

Great fit and sexy, yet understated. The front slit made it! Little big on top, so for small busts may need a little filler ;)

Compliments all night!

This dress is gorgeous. The color is a very light lavender almost blue. The slit up the side is pretty high and I was a little self conscious when sitting down, but felt fine once i got used to it. I wore it to a wedding and got tons of compliments. The 6 was a little big on me. I would suggest getting your backup size a size smaller. Highly recommend renting this dress!

Sexy!

This dress was sexy with a high slit and very fitted. I loved the color and the ruffled slit. The only thing I didn't like was the slit was too high for my Spanx lol. I felt beautiful. Fit true to size.

beautiful dress! amazing fit and color! I received so many complements.

Very flattering. I think I could have gone down a size and worn a 0 instead of a 2. I had to keep pulling it up because it was little loose on top. Overall would recommend to anyone!

Would be great for someone with curves!

This dress was a really pretty color in person. However, the tailoring was definitely made with someone a little more well-endowed than me, and the nature of the fabric meant that there wasn't much "give". The dress gaped at my chest and had too much extra room in the booty. Beautiful if it would fit your body type! Unfortunately this just didn't work for me.

Would have been great!

This is a gorgeous dress. The color is incredible, but I just couldn't get it to fit me correctly. My chest was too large for the 4 and the 6 was too large overall.

nice color

I liked this dress a lot. Beautiful color, can dress up or down easily. I didn't find it unflattering for myself personally, but it wasn't especially forgiving either (doesn't hide imperfection). The one note is that the slit goes up pretty high. It's not bad / super noticeable when standing, but when you sit, basically the folds of the dress fall down and totally expose your thighs. If I hadn't had a pashmina with me to use to cover my lap, I would've felt very exposed during the wedding ceremony. Overall though I liked this dress and would recommend

Beautiful color and ruffle detail

Dress was really pretty and comfortable! I got tons of compliments but found in some photos, the high slit and ruffle detail would crumble together and add weight to my midsection. Felt good in it in person though! I am a true 2 and found I had to pull it up a good bit while dancing. I don't have the biggest boobs though so that should help fill the top out more and prevent that. I'd recommend all in all!!

Classic yet unique

Loved this dress! I didn't love the color against my skin tone, but had rented the yellow jay Godfrey before and loved the simplicity and the stretch. Chose the 6 because although the 8 fit better around my hips, it was too large on top. Nothing worse than yanking a dress up all night. Very comfortable and a sexy yet subtle slit was a hit.

This dress is AMAZING!

This dress fit PERFECTLY. I was a bit skeptical about the fabric being too thin and possibly too clingy as some 'bodycon' dresses are, but it was perfect! I did not feel too squeezed and the fabric was thick enough to not be sheer, but also not too warm-- I live in FL so the heat is REAL. But this dress was fantastic. 10/10!!

Beautiful!

The dress fit me absolutely perfect! I'm 5'10" and the dress was a perfect length. The slit did come up pretty high when I sat down but that just made it even sexier! Everyone complimented me on my dress. Highly recommend if you're going to be a wedding guest and need a nice dress for the occasion

5 months pregnant and felt very comfortable in it!

I was really nervous when I got my dresses, as my one I was really hoping to wear was unable to ship. I am five months pregnant and really wanted something that was comfortable and flattering, while making me look pregnant not just like I had a big meal. This dress was great! The 8 was very loose but the 6 fit almost perfectly. The bust does run a bit big--I am currently a D cup with pregnancy and had to put a strapless bra on to help ensure it would stay up. The slit was high but with the ruffles it was really flattering. I loved it!

Loved this dress!!!

This was the second time I used Rent The Runway and it did not disappoint!!! The fit was perfect. Although the dress looked a little bit worn at the edge of the slit, you could barely notice it because of the ruffle. The dress looked elegant and sexy at the same time. Everyone was raging about it. Definitely a winner!

Sexy and classy

The dress fit perfectly and was in great condition. I'm really small at only 5 ft, so i was worried that it may be too long for me but the length was just right. The slit goes up just high enough where you can move and dance around and not worry that it's coming up too high. Loved it!!

I would wear this dress for any spring/summer event. Super flattering for different body types

The dress is gorgeous and fit perfectly. There is a nice structure to it with a comfortable good quality fabric. I wore this for an April wedding reception and felt pretty and covered enough. The slit isn't too high and is definitely flattering. The color is also really pretty. I wore this dress with nude shoes and a diamond bracelet!
