Elegant and unique dress. I got a million compliments all night long!

I got so many compliments on this dress. Fit was comfortable. I usually wear a size 0 but the 0 was too small. The size 2 fit perfectly. The dress is elegant and comfortable. I'm glad it was my dress choice for my event.

RENT ME RENT ME RENT ME!

Okay my ladies, let me just tell you the customer service is off the racks awesome. Seriously, my girls over there, holla. This dress, since it is mermaid style, can be a little tight around the knees so it's not the best dancing dress. But A+ for being strapless bc this has a bodice in it so it stays nicely. It really shows off the booty but it's really underwear sensitive. The fabric is light and flows beautifully at the ends. I'm 5'6 so with around 3 1/2 inch heels it doesn't drag but still looks like a nice flow. I put a belt with it bc it is a simple, but elegant dress but it adds a nice sparkly touch to it. It's a really classy dress and it's girly and sweet-RENT IT!!

Great dress for a great price!

Fit great. There is a weird indentation on the front it shows I can't really describe it but other than that I loved it. Material is moderate as far as weight goes. Not super heavy at all. Color more pink than the picture but very pretty. Gorgeous show stopper !

Loved this dress. Got so many compliments.

I got the 4R and it was slightly short with my heels. However, I am 5'9" so that is my own fault. It fit perfectly otherwise! Loved this dress would definitely recommend it!

It fit like a glove!

This dress was awesome. It fit my body completely, with the exception of the chest area being a little loose and the dress being a little too long. I'm 5'6 wearing 4 inch heels, and I ordered a long, but if I were to go back I would have ordered the regular. Overall a very positive experience, shows off your curves and the fabric is very nice.

Beautiful alternative to wedding dress

I wore this dress to my civil ceremony after I was emailed that the dress I originally requested (the ever so popular Reem Acra: florence gown) was damaged. They sent me a few options after I told them that this was for my civil ceremony and this was the one I picked. I have a pretty muscular back/ large bust so I had to go up a size and even then I had difficulty zipping it up. Still happy with the way it looked. I added a skirt under to give it more bridal look. Rent the runway customer service is superb.

I'm glad that Rent the Runway lets you order another size of your first choice doesn't fit.

Overall, I love the dress! I got so many compliments on the way it hugged my body, and how the color of the dress looked on my skin tone. If your going to a formal wedding this is the perfect dress.

The dress fit perfectly. It was very comfortable and light weight, very easy to move/dance in! I will definitely be renting again for my upcoming weddings!

Loved this dress, wish it was dry cleaned correctly

I really did love this dress, it's cut so nicely and very flattering for a slender and curvy person. It was a tiny bit long for me so I just wore taller shoes. This may be my favorite rtr rental so far. However, the top portion kept trying to curl. I even tried steaming it and ironing it. I'm sure when this dress was brand new it was flawless. It's unfortunate that rtr doesn't take better care of the dresses.

Absolute dream dress!

I loved this dress so much. Got countless compliments including from strangers. The color is a perfect blush pink, and the bottom of the dress is so elegant and moves beautifully. Wore the 0R although it was snug, and definitely not forgiving in the mid section at all. While the fabric, structure and piping of the dress helps to slim, it's definitely a tight dress (maybe a Spanx use case but I did not use any) I could have done the 2R just as well but liked the tightness of the 0R. Worked better for me without a bra -- the bra made it look bulkier on top. Highly recommend this for a formal event! My one ask to RTR would be to mind the bottom of the dress - mine came a bit dirty which was a bummer.

The dress was long enough even with 2 inch heels! I felt I kept pulling it up and the top of the dress needed pressing. But overall was pretty.

Classy & Beautiful!

Loved this dress so much! The blush color works perfect with a good tan, normally I wear a size 2 but I got a 4 because I wanted it less tight so I could dance. It slipped down a little but otherwise very flattering fit & style!

The PERFECT dress!

This dress runs true to size and really compliments your curves. I ordered the 0R and 2R, both fit however the 2R fit looser and was much longer. I liked the tighter fit and went with the 0R. It fit great in all the right places! It's a great dress for us small chested ladies! I wore about 3 1/2 to 4inch heels which worked perfectly with the length of the dress and did not wear a strapless bra. Not only does this dress look great in pictures but it's a dress you can dance in all night as well. Received compliments all night. I don't have a single negative thing to say about this dress, I would definitely rent it again!! I absolutely loved it!

Classic.

I'm a very typical size 6 but they only had a size 8 which was good because not sure I would have squeezed into a smaller size. The color is a beautiful blush pink. The dress itself is very thick and heavy - probably not the best choice for a steamy hot day in July (oh well!). The neckline is interesting and different. All in all a classic dress.

The dress is definitely form fitting, you can see every bump and line so I sized up! Also, the wiring in the bust can get a little uncomfortable if you're sitting for a long period of time.

This dress was awesome for my high school winter formal!

I usually wear between a 4 and 6 so I ordered both sizes. The four bunched up weird around my waist, so I ended up wearing the 6. It fit well but was loose around my bust and rib cage. A bit of fashion tape solved the problem! With 3 inch heels on this dress was perfect length for me. Unfortunately, it has lost a bit of its shape around the middle due to such popular use! However, it still received many compliments.

Being able to choose a great dress that fit my curves.

I am so glad this dress fit me perfectly! The first dress that the bride chose for me to wear didn't fit, so RTR sent me 3 dresses of my choice on no extra charge before the wedding! Such an incredible company! I felt beautiful as her matron of honor and I loved this dress!

I truly loved the service and ease of renting a dress for my gala.

The fit was great. I had to go up a size. But the dress fit really nice. Had to wear a strapless bra despite the boning which allowed for the top of the dress to remain smooth. I will definitely rent again.

Pretty but didn't fit me

This is such a pretty dress but I had to go home and change before my event because the top fit me so poorly. Online the fabric looks stiffer and thicker than it is in real life, it moves more than I expected it would. From the waist down the 4L fit me great, but I couldn't get the zipper to stay up. I wouldn't recommend this for bustier girls, I'm a 32DD and that was too much for the top. It kept falling down, which was such a disappointment. In addition, there was a hole on one side of the dress, and the hook on the back was missing.

Pretty but a bit uncomfortable

The top was either a little big or maybe it was stretched out? It was very tight around my hips. The petite was the perfect length for my height. I did get a lot of compliments but it wasn't my favorite dress. The top was too big and it was a chore to use the bathroom or get up from my seat. Also- the wires on the side get digging into my ribs.

First RTR dress and was hooked!

This was my first time using RTR and I was immediately hooked on using the service for wearing formal attire. The dress fit like a glove, true to size, perfect length. Use spanx to smooth out as the fabric isn't too forgiving.

The fact that it didn't fit and that the wiring to keep the dress lined at the top was mangled

Runs a size smaller. The wiring in the front to keep the dress shape was messed up and even if it had fit would have looked weird

Doesn't stretch AT ALL

If you're anything like me, I have fuller muscular thighs and because this dress doesn't stretch it didn't fit me at all. The smaller 2L that I got I couldn't even put on and the larger 4L was too large in the bust but still way too tight in the rear. I couldn't even sit down! Let alone dance or do anything functional. Very pretty dress and I wish I could have worn it :(

xx Bell of the Ball in Blush xx

Measurements identified on photo for reference. This strapless gown is stunning! It has a slight train & fitted in all the right places. Because of the pale blush color, you could see any wrinkle, liner, undergarment, tag, crease (etc. you get my point) under the gown. To fix this I bet I could go up a size or wear spandex (Spanks). The dress is a bit heavy, but decently breathable. I did not choose this gown for my event but I definitely would have otherwise. I have worn a similar gown (in red) and it was amazing comfortable.

Amazing dress. Not so amazing experience with RTR.

The dress was amazing. I'm 5'10 and the 4L fit me perfectly. Unfortunately, the dress arrived over 24 hours late and the top of the dress did not lay right due to lack of ironing or something, but other than that it looked great.

I had just had a baby a month before I wore it and the fit was very flattering. It hid the bumps and still gave me a slender looking appearance.

Beautiful and classy gown, stood out in a sea of dark dresses!

Background: I ordered this dress as an emergency replacement which was overnighted to me after my first order of dresses did not fit. Fit: 1. Runs SUPER small! I am normally a size 4-6, but am pretty busty and because there is no stretch to the fabric anything smaller like a size 8 would not have zipped all the way up. I think if I were smaller in the chest area I may have fit a size 6 even, if I had sucked it in, lol. If you have a smaller bust, going only one or two sizes up will probably work just fine. If not, I would recommend ordering 2-3 sizes up just in case. 2. It is extremely long. I am 5'5" and was wearing 3 inch heels. The hem still dragged on the floor at least 2-3 inches. It looked really pretty, but I had to be careful walking and with certain dance moves. It isn't a heavy dress so it doesn't pull downwards. 3. There are straps you can use if you want to, I chose not to and used double sided tape with only one side removed to keep them from poking out like they wanted to. I also wore a spanx type corset because the fabric kept wanting to bunch upwards. This fixed it, but you could see it a little. I didn't think it was noticeable enough to be concerned though. Overall, I got TONS of compliments and the mermaid design looks very pretty when you dance as the bottom swirls around you. The color is gorgeous and I really stood out since 99% of the dresses there were dark. I would recommend this dress and wish I could actually buy it!

Beautiful dress

If you are short waisted or muscular, this dress is not for you! I am 5'2 and 112 lbs, 32 C/D and usually wear a size 0 or 2. I had to size up to a size 4 because the 2 was too tight and even then it was extremely tight/semi-unflattering in the waist. The length was perfect with a pair of 4 inch heels though. Beautiful dress but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone not a tiny size 0 or who has any sort of muscle on their frame.

Timeless look, much complimented

I received this as a back up, Saturday delivery 4 hours before our event after my first choice in dress did not fit. All they had available for me on such short notice was the 10R (normally I would have opted for the 8 but thank god I didnt!) This sucker fit me like a glove- a scary glove that thankfully I got to zip no problem but I surely felt like I had to walk around sucking in all evening. I never thought of myself as having a large bust/back width until I overflowed out of this on top. However, aside from my own insecurities the dress photographed beautifully and I received compliments all evening. (Ps. I wore flat shoes and had I worn heels I would have had a problem.)

Gorgeous color, pretty fit

I rented this dress for a formal gala I attended, and the color could not have been more perfect. I found the dress runs a little small - I rented a 4R and a 6R and ended up wearing the 6, though I am almost always a 4. The length was perfect with the 4 inch heels I wore. My only complaint about this dress (and why I am not giving it all 5 stars) is that it has wire piping in chest, and on both of my dresses, the piping was sticking out on one side. I was afraid it was going to rip through the fabric! My boyfriend said it was hardly noticeable, but it definitely stood out to me.

The dress's fit is very pretty and perfect for formal occasions that do not involve to much dancing.

I usually wear a 4 (the 6 fit better), but if you have any type of butt, make sure you order the size up as your backup size. Beautiful dress and pretty comfortable, just not at all dance friendly.
