RTR Stylist Review

If Belle from Beauty and the Beast needed a modern day style, this would be it! This gorgeous yellow dress is incredibly flattering and is such a showstopper. It is very fitted throughout and I would recommend going one size up. It works best for A to C cup sizes as well. For a statement, wear with a red lip and pair with silver heels!

Stand out dress

I'm 5"4 , 121 and I ordered a 4 and it fit great. The dress is form fitting for sure and the fabric is thick. The off the shoulder and ruffles really make this dress.

Pop of spring color with class

The dress is stunning and the yellow really stands out from all other dresses. The frill and off the shoulder gives it a classy feel. It's formfitting but the fabric is stretchy and super comfortable! I would have ordered a size 4 to keep it on a little more snug so I would t have to keep pulling it up when I'm dancing! Definitely would rent this again! Beautiful dress!

The looks I got due to the color and fit of the dress

I should've gotten a smaller size because the dress would've fit like a glove, still felt glamorous. #wedding #classicbelle

Beautiful wedding and great dress!

Overall the dress was great. I only wish I had seen that the model was 5'10". I am 5'1 and the dress was a little too long for me. But, overall it was a great fit and a wonderful experience with Rent the Runway. I will be doing this again!

I loved this dress! It fit like a glove. And I got so many compliments!

It fit true to size. Pros: fabric is thick and stretchy. Cons: its very form fitting so I wore some heavy duty spanx. If you don't like tight it's not for you.

This dress was a hit!

I'm glad I ordered a second size in a size smaller. The 6 fit more snugly than the 8, but in a good way. Also, I'm a DD and only used some tape to lift the girls up. I don't think you need to be an A-C cup size to wear this dress. I had people coming up to me all night telling me how much they loved this dress! I felt amazing!

To say I felt like Belle was an understatement. This dress is stunning. I received so many compliments. It was form fitting and flattering in every way. The yellow color is stunning for a spring or summer event

Best. Dress. Ever. Compliments ALL night.

Seriously, you need to rent this dress. I got compliments ALL night. Paired it with these earrings also from RTR, pink lipstick, pink floral shoes and made my husband wear a pink tie to coordinate but not be overly matchy. Definitely need to wear spanx and no underwear as it's form fitting and shows seams. I am usually between a 4 and a 6 and wore the 4. I'm 5'7", small C cup. I hope you rent this dress and love it as much as I do!

Stunning dress, classic cut in a bold and vibrant color!

I rented this dress for a fundraiser, I typically wear a size 4, but I read reviews which indicated that the dress runs small. This is correct, so I recommend that you size up with this dress. The color is stunning, it's a canary yellow and is reminiscent of Belle's iconic dress from "Beauty and the Beast." The dress has structure to the waist, so it'll hold its form nicely and stay up. People loved this dress and you're sure to receive many compliments with this rental! Great dress for dancing too!

So many complements!

This dress is so beautiful! Vivacious and everyone complimented it, I loved wearing it so much it was so much fun and flattering for curves although hardware was needed since it was form fitting. It fit my chest and comfortable in back, length was good. I could eat and dance with it on. I wish I could wear it all the time :)

Great dress

Pros: This dress is quite the showstopper! It was perfect for a Miami wedding. I received many compliments. Cons: I'm not in the best shape right now and I'm apple-shaped. Even with spanx I felt like my stomach pooch was very evident im this dress. It was a bit long on me and the yellow even brighter than the RTR photos, but overall it's a stunning dress.

This COLOR is a showstopper!

I LOVED this dress! It fit like a glove. I felt so comfortable in it and it was a total knockout! I wore it to a wedding that my boyfriend was in. The entire night he just kept telling everyone his girlfriend was "the one in the yellow dress"! People kept complimenting the color and the fit. Totally shows off your curves and ALL of them. My booty felt like Kim K and I was loving every second of it.

Perfect summer dress

Color was beautiful! Dress fit was flattering. Loved the off the shoulder. Only down fall - not the best dress for dancing. With lots of movement, it slips and needs to be pulled up quite a bit. Otherwise beautiful dress!

Compliments galore!

I wore this dress to a bridal shower and received compliments left and right! It fit like a glove- the fabric is thick and feels/looks expensive. I did not have to wear a bra (always a plus) just some nipple petals, however I don't even think they were necessary due to the thickness of the fabric. The dress itself is very loud so I kept it simple with my accessories & shoe color. Perfect for weddings, graduation, showers, etc. The length was very classy and tasteful, it hit mid-calf and I am 5'8. Would 100% rent again!

Beyond Gorgeous!

I always wanted to try a yellow dress and this was the PERFECT choice. Besides being a flattering shade (slightly darker in real life) it was super comfortable and very well made. I didn't wear anything underneath, top or bottom. The dress is nicely lined and the shoulders stay where they belong without any effort. I ordered both the 2 and 4; the 2 was perfect and hugged in all the right spots. I want to buy it!

Black Tie Affair with a Tropical Flare

I wore this dress to a friend's black tie wedding. The dress fit amazing. I felt extremely sexy in this dress. I received a ton of compliments throughout the night. I wore a pair of spanx to keep everything in but this dress fit like a glove. Highly recommend if you want to stand out and be classy.

Love this dress!!

The color is stunning, just like it looks in the photo. The material is stretchy but think enough to be very comfortable. You can totally see lines so I would suggest wearing spanx underneath. It was true to size, I didn't even have to try on the backup size since the 4 fit so perfectly.

Beautiful color!!

I loved this dress! The color is so unique and bright and happy. You will not fade into the background in this dress. I read it runs small but I thought it ran a bit large. I usually wear between a 4 and 6 and got both sizes but wished I had ordered a 2. I had to keep pulling the top up as the night went on. The one con is that it wrinkles a bit if you are sitting down for long periods of time. Not terribly but I wouldn't have though a material with stretch would wrinkle at all.

Everyone will stop you to ask you about your dress!

The color was beautiful, I received tons of compliments. My only complaint is that the lining underneath the dress seemed off on both sizes. If there is one thing I can't stand, it's watching people constantly adjust their outfits. I gave up at one point and had someone else tell me my dress was crooked from the back! You can also tell it's uneven from the bottom as well. As I said, both sizes seemed to do it but the 6 was too big so I had to wear the 4. Overall it was a great dress but me being slightly OCD, I wasn't as comfortable as I would have liked, so I couldn't wait to get home to take it off.

Beautiful dress!

The dress fits true to size, and it has a good amount of stretch. The length is a little longer than midi. The fabric is pretty unforgiving, so wearing a smoothing undergarment isn't a bad idea. It was comfortable to dance in and I received compliments all night!

Got compliments all night long!

This dress was super flattering and comfortable. I received compliments all night long. I got the 4 and the 6 and ended up wearing the 4. I have a fuller bust and was able to go without a bra and still feel supported. I didn't feel at all worried about falling out of it. The structure of the dress really pulls you in at the waist in a complimentary way. There is boning in the sides and back of the bodice which got a little annoying by the end of the night, but I would definitely wear this dress again!

I received at least 3 compliments from strangers saying they absolutely loved the dress.

Size 6 was perfect- the 4 was a bit tight on top. Awesome cleavage dress-it looked classy AND a bit sexy. The color was standout. The dress was super comfortable-stretchy. #everyonenoticed #weddingperfect#bestcolor
