Worked, but wasn't my favorite
This dress was definitely pretty and worked for the event (spring evening wedding) but it wasn't my favorite. It fit true to size and the the fake peplum hid any stomach issues I wanted to hide. The length was nice and it worked with come plain black pumps. I received a lot of compliments on it and I was comfortable all night, but there was just something off about it so I didn't enjoy wearing this dress as much as I thought I would. I'm glad I tried something out of my comfort zone but I wouldn't rent it again.

The wedding was a beautiful event in midtown NYC
The dress was very cute and I received a lot of compliments. It was rather tight around the back and chest. I am only 36B but have strong shoulders. I loved the color and thought that it was a great dress to dance in.

It's great. Comfortable. Great fuschia color. Lots of compliments.
Fits well. I'm 5'0" and it was a pretty good length. I wanted to look a bit covered up at a wedding, so I didn't mind that it came to mid-lower thigh.

Great Dress!
I wore this dress to a Christmas Party and absolutely loved it! The lace adds just the right amount of detail to keep it from being too plain. Not to mention, the color is lovely. It is more conservative, but definitely not matronly. I could've worn the 2 as well, but I liked that the 0 was form-fitting. This was my first experience renting a dress and I have not one complaint. Thanks Rent the Runway!

Lovely color and cut!
Fit wise, this dress was made for someone with different proportions.. Because I'm shorter, and have a short torso, the dress did the top half was too long and bunched up a lot. The seam across the waist also didn't hit me in the right spot. The bottom half ended up being too roomy. If I were just a little taller I think the dress would have fit a lot better. I loved the color and the cut in the back, though and got multiple compliments on it.

This dress fit really well and was easy to wear.
I wore a 6--the 8 was a little too baggy. The 6 was pretty form-fitting. Not too short. It was flattering and I loved it! Easy to wear any bra underneath.

The material was comfortable and the lace detail added elegance that made it perfect for a wedding.
The dress was super comfortable and perfect for the wedding! Polyester was not the best choice for an outdoor ceremony in June, but the stretchy material was perfect for dancing. I received so many compliments on the style and fit of the dress. I paired with the Badgley Mischka Black Crystal Cluster Earrings https://www.renttherunway.com/shop/designers/pierced_jewelry/blackcrystalclusterearrings.

Complements keep on coming
I wore this dress on a summer wedding and it feels right and comfy. It has a nice stretch to it so more room to dance and of course to eat. I just felt so happy about it and if only I could keep it, I would. This is my first time to rent and I will do it again. It makes life easier most especially for a mom like me who does not have time in the world to shop for hours in the mall. Customer service at rent the runway is superb. It makes looking for a dress to wear on occasions convenient for everyone.

Perfect dress for a wedding reception! It was great for dancing!
The dress was very comfortable and great for dancing and moving. It was very breathable, so it was perfect for a summer wedding. It was a little bit loose around the hips, but the rest of the dress fit in the right places. It was longer than in the picture of the model, but that's also because I'm short. Overall, it was a hit!

I felt like a million dollars at the wedding I attended!
I rented this dress for a wedding in Palo Alto and couldn't have been happier with it. I am definitely self-conscious about some weight that I've gained, and the lace faux-peplum on this dress was so flattering! I am somewhere between a 10 and a 12, and I decided to wear the 12 so I had a little more breathing room. At 5'3", I am a lot shorter than the model shown wearing this dress, and I was very happy with where it ended up falling on me length-wise. This was another RTR success!

My husband though this dress was HOT!!
This dress is made out of a stretch material, which was great because the food was good! I loved this dress and felt good wearing it. I wore this dress when it was a little cold, so I put on tights and a cardigan. The back is out a little, but I was able to wear a regular bra.

One of my best friends got married! :)
I absolutely LOVED this dress! I got compliments all night long, and the color really popped. The fabric of the dress had some stretch to it, which was great for dancing. Initially, I saw that many women rented this for fall/winter events, but the dress worked really well for a spring wedding too. This rental experience was everything I wanted it to be!

I got tons of compliments on this dress at my friend's graduation. It has the perfect amount of stretch and length so that you are comfortable all night long, whatever you activity. I would definitely rent this again! The 4 fit perfectly and the 6 was a little big in the waist.

Wore this to a casual winter wedding. Was a fabulous hit--so many compliments and the pictures looked amazing. I felt so confident in the dress and you can wear regualr undergarments with it.

I loved the color and lace detail of this dress The cut was very flattering as well. I was not a huge fan of the fabric though, but that is more of a personal opinion. It is certainly something that is conservative enough to wear to a variety of functions.

It was very classy and edgy!
I wore this to a rehearsal dinner and I paired it with a long set of pearls. I am long waisted and I thought it might hit me in a weird place on my waist. I did have to adjust it a little during the evening between the bust and the waist as it wrinkled a little, but overall the dress was nice!

Great color
This was my backup dress. I wore it to a date with my husband to see Book of Mormon. It wasn't as flattering as I had hoped because it was a little right across the chest on me. Would probably add a lot of shape to a straight body type though! I loved trying something different from my usual though. My friends all liked my original dress best but my husband had no complaints :)

This dress fit great! I'm a bit bustier, so it was a bit loose through the hips but it didn't look bad. I would definitely recommend it.

Classy and flattering!
This was the perfect dress for a winter wedding. The material is slightly stretchy and it cinched in the right places. It was very flattering and very easy to wear. I rented the 6 and 8 and wore the 6, if I had to do it again I would have gone down for my backup size. The color is bright and I got lots of compliments! I would definitely rent again!

Wore this for a NYE dinner and dancing...loved it!
It fit nicely although the zipper was a little hard to get over the seam. The color was bright and the lace was beautiful! You can wear a normal bra because the back V is not as low as the picture looks. I wore it with a chunky silver necklace, black tights and black booties. The lace around the waist is also perfect for hiding any slight problem areas! It was perfect for a night out in snowy Chicago!

Beautiful color!
I got this as a backup dress for a wedding, but decided to go with the other dress. It's a decent length on me, but I can see it being a tad short on someone taller. Fits true to size, so if you are more chesty just be mindful that a larger size may be better. I would rent this again for sure.

Great color!
Got lots of compliments on the color, very flattering fit! I'm usually an 8 or 10, and the 8 was too snug - went with the 10, which could have been a bit tighter across the back - but it was fine for the evening. Great length - was longer on me than it looks on the model. You can TOTALLY wear a regular bra with it!

I wore this dress for a Friday night spring wedding. Although conservative in the front, the back is a deep lace V and you are able to wear a normal bra with it. Lightweight and comfortable. Wish I owned it.

I was told this dress looked like something Princess Kate would wear!
This dress is fabulous. It fit perfectly with a little extra room in the hips making it extremely comfortable and wearable. I'm 5'2" and it was the perfect length for a semi formal event. I paired it with black pumps and silver jewelry. Will definitely rent again based on all the wonderful compliments I received!
