Love RTR but I had 2 dresses delivered and I chose the other dress.

I'm a busty girl so this dress made me look very big on top and round all over. You definitely need to be tall and thin for this one. Also, I chose another dress to wear because this one was far more provocative and not appropriate for the occasion. Still a beautiful dress though.

Perfect for my event!

The color pink is a little brighter than in the picture but I loved the color in real life. Plus it has shimmer that you can see on the model and I loved that as well. The fit was really nice in the waist and the poof of the dress was flattering, however, the straps were huge on me and I had to use a lot of styling tape to keep it into place. I went up a size because the other reviews told me it was tight in the waist but I kept worrying about how my straps looked. I would probably go down a size if I rented in the future.

Great fit and gorgeous dress. Pictures don't do it justice. I got compliments all night long.

Can be snug around the rib cage if you need to go with the smaller of 2 sizes because of the top.

Sadly I couldn't wear this dress

I loved this dress! I we so sad I couldn't wear it. I knew it was s risk based on the other reviews but I was hoping I could make it work. I have a large chest but average length torso and wide ribcage. The size 8 was way too tight in the ribcage but fit quite well in the torso. It would have required a little double stick tape to keep the top from Slipping off my shoulders but it was just way too tight. The size 10 fit great in the ribcage but the straps could only have been wearable on a much much taller woman. All the tape in the world couldn't make it work. This dress is ideal for someone with a smaller ribcage and long torso.

First RTR dress! Fun & fab for a summer wedding! Pockets a plus!

Fabulous dress for a wedding! Fit well, a little large around the bust. I'd definitely recommend a backup size if it is available. I also used fashion tape on the sides to hold the dress in place while dancing. Loved the pockets and color! Lots of compliments!

My 5yo said "Mommy, you're so pretty like a Princess!"

Beautiful dress and my Husband loved it! This dress is definitely for the bigger chested ladies! I'm a 36B and I had to pin the shoulders a little tighter so it wouldn't keep falling. Also, to give myself a little lift and cleavage, I found a sticky "U" shape bra at Macy's for $30(good deal compared to the $50 one Victoria's Secret has) and you can barely see the clear sticky tape when your arms are down.

I absolutely loved this dress! I received compliments on it all night.

This dress fit great. I wore it to an outdoor wedding and it was perfect for the occasion. It was a little big on top, and you can't wear a bra with this dress. I wore "chicken cutlets" as my bra and it helped make the top fit better. This dress is perfectly feminine. This was my second experience with Rent the Runway, and they haven't disappointed me yet.

Fabulous!

Slightly tight around rib cage and big in the bust and I am a 34D. Nothing a lot of fashion tape and a sticky bra couldn't fix. Beautiful color and the fabric is heavy but lovely.

Too big overall

I really wanted to like this cupcake-like dress for my bridal shower but I just couldn't make it work. The top looked big and was too revealing on the sides and the skirt just overwhelmed me. It would probably look wonderful on a girl who is tiny up top and fuller hipped.

Derby Party Dress. Perfect blend of classy and sexy!

The dress fit perfectly! The pockets were fun and really convenient, since I didn't want to carry around a purse all day. I got a ton of compliments on it! #derbyparty

Flirty and fun!

Great fun dress for a rehearsal dinner. Fabric is nice and thick so even though the neckline and arm holes dip really low I still felt supported. It is such a sweet color and skirt, and the neckline gives it just enough edge. Received lots of compliments! Would wear again!

Unflattering

It was unflattering, mainly because the poof in the skirt was too big on my frame. The waist fit perfectly, but the straps were too long and I dont think I could fill out the dress properly around the bust. I think this would look perfect on someone that had the model's height but for me it just wasn't working. RTR was AMAZING though at customer service.

The PERFECT pink dress!

I wore this dress for my May bridal shower. It was sexy and classy at the same time! It ran a little large, but I used fashion tape to make sure the front stayed modest. Some girls mentioned in their review that they felt like a cupcake in it. I felt like a sexy little bride!!

A little off

Even more beautiful in person, HOWEVER, this dress definitely requires a certain amount of "bust" to fill it out properly and to ensure the straps stay in place. I'm a B and there was no way I could wear this dress without the top part falling to the sides. So I wasn't able to wear it.

Boob area was way too sloppy and large even for double D Bra size. Bummed because it was cute

Didn't wear due to side boob action that would have been inappropriate.

Lovely Dress! Will benefit from bigger boobs or broader shoulders

This dress is perfectly cute! Love the color (and I don't even care for baby pink that much), the thicker fabric, the puffy but not too poofy skirt, the pockets, everything. My only complaint is that my upper body is petite (boobs, shoulders, torso) and this dress definitely needs to upper body heft to fill it out. I managed with stick in boob cups, and double sided tape everywhere. So cute for a summer wedding. Paired with gold glittery shoes and the look was perfection.

Wore this dress for Mother's Day 2014. Really great dress; Very feminine.

This dress was so cute! I got tons of compliments. The skirt is very large, but I loved that. My only real complaint is that it was sightly large in the bust area and fashion tape didn't secure it very well for me, which is why I wore the little jacket you can see in one of my pictures, but overall I really loved the look and feel of this dress. I didn't want to return it!

The dress is gorgeous, but like everyone else stated, the straps are way to long. I wear a 34DD and still had problems keeping them up even with fabric tape.

This was my least favorite RTR dress to date

This was my least favorite RTR dress to date. I rented this for a Valentines Day date with my husband. I'm usually between a 2 and a 4 with RTR and the 2 was the only size available, so I went for it! The fabric is beautiful, and I love the back, but the top was very strange. The dress fit perfectly in the waist but the top was large. I'm a large 34 C and with the size 2 it was still big on me. I'm not sure who they are expecting to wear the dress. I ended up wearing fashion tape and a cardigan. You can't tell how badly it gaps at the side from these pictures but trust me, if you are skeptical in and way, stay away from this dress.

Adorable dress!

This dress is very cute but required a lot of fashion tape to keep it in place. I also shortened it by taping up the hem because the skirt has an overwhelming amount of fabric. The dress was definitely worth it though!

Jaws dropping at my 20 year HS reunion!!

I am 5'9" and weight 128 lbs. I am a 34 A. I usually wear a 4 but it was huge on me so I'm glad I got a 2 as backup. The 2 was still big on top so I used tape but I loved this dress so much!! My favorite so far. The door man even looked at me and said "DAMN!" I think this works better on small chested ladies but you will need tape.

Super cute dress!

This dress was great and super cute! I however ordered too large, I normally wear a 2-4 dress size so I played it safe and got a size 4; it worked out just fine but it was falling off me - definitely order a size smaller than you think you need, I probably would have been fine going 2 sizes down but I know that's a bit risky.

It was a beautiful 4th of July wedding, with perfect weather.

Unfortunately, this dress runs really big. I am usually a true 8, and this was swimming on me. It was such a shame too, because this really is a stunning, edgy dress. I loved it so much. I tried desperately to obtain a 6 as well, since they offer a second size free, but there wasn't one available. I didn't wear the dress, because I have a 2 year old daughter and didn't want to spend the night chasing after her, maintain keeping the dress in the proper places or risk the "goods" popping out. I would absolutely recommend this dress to others, just order a size down and don't order it hoping it will fit if you suspect it will be too large. I was so sad to spend over 50.00 on something so awesome and not be able to wear it. :/

Wore this to Denver's Derby party. It was perfect and feminine, sexy, and classy.

The ONLY con is that it's a bit big and tricky on top. The straps like to slip off your shoulders. Take extra care to prevent wardrobe malfunctions, or you will bare your bosoms to everyone.

Very Cupcake, Very Misleading photo

This was my first choice dress so I got a size 2 and 4, both were very large on my little frame. It was long and contrary to what the model looks like the skirt is very puffy and made me look like a cupcake. I went with my backup dress which was much more flattering. It did run long even in the too also the top wasn't flattering to my chest or shoulders. The fabric was nice and soft, so its got that going for it which is nice. The print in the dress isn't snake skin crazy or anything like that, it is a soft fabric so its not shinny or leather, but rather just a lighter color of fabric with a darker fabric over it. Keep in mind the model is very tall and the dress is probably a size -0 (if that is a thing) in the photo!

Adorable dress, but fidgety in the top

Definitely recommend looking at the other customer photos, and agree with the other reviews. The skirt is a lot poofier in person, and the fabric has a shimmery pattern. The topic runs big, but the waist is tight. Even with fashion tape, I could not get the top to lay right on my shoulders/chest. I ultimately didn't wear the dress to my event because I knew the top would be too fidgety with a lot of movement/dancing. It's too bad, the dress is overall really adorable.

I rented this dress as a back-up for my birthday party.

RTR only had a size 12 available and unfortunately it was too big in the bust. There was little to no support in the chest area and no way to wear a bra. The fabric on the dress also appeared a bit dingy.

Didn't love as much as i thought i would.

The top was too big you def needed fashion tape to keep everything in place. The shirt poofed out more that i expected to. I felt like it would be great if you were pregnant and trying to hide a small bump. However, the color was pretty! I was sad with the outcome of this choice!!

Beautiful dress, but a little large.

The dress fit in the waist, but, like everyone has been saying, the straps were VERY long. I'm very busty and so I figured I wouldn't have the same problem, but I still had falling straps I had to tape down. Otherwise the fit was great!

Not for the busty

This dress reminded me that gravity does indeed exist and does some not so love things to the body. Also, where I wanted to show my sides (rib area) large amount of side boobs were also being exposed without remedy to be fixed. The fabric is STUNNING, but this dress did not get to leave my apartment.

Wish it fit!!!

I LOVE this dress. Unfortunately my size (6) was booked so I opted for a 4 just to see if to would work. I tried the dress on fell in love and could only get it to zip half way. The dress has ZERO give in the rib cage area so I would highly recommend sizing up. The fabric is a heavier weight and has beautiful metallic pink detailing. I will be renting this dress again....in the right size.

I wore this as an outfit change before dinner after my afternoon wedding ceremony.

I loved this dress. It was very snug right at the bra line around the ribcage (I wear a 34" bra). I used fashion tape to keep the dress in place around my chest and it did fine. The skirt is very full and bell like. I loved the thickness of the fabric and the subtle pattern/shimmer. When I get more pics of this dress I will add them- I only had the seated one on hand right now.

Do not rent!

I was so excited for this dress, however this was so unflattering and the fit was horrible that I did not wear it. I ordered a size 2 since size 4's have been slightly too big recently. I could barely get the dress zipped up all the way. I could have lived with a slightly tight dress but the chest had so much fabric and was huge. I did not fill it out what so ever. The center band and skirt also hit in a bad place and was extremely unflattering. My advice - only rent it if you are the model.

Although I couldn't wear this rental, RTR's awesome customer service team helped a ton!

This dress was horrible. I couldn't wear either of the sizes I had ordered. Extremely too tight in the waist to the point it was hard to breathe.The straps then were too big and if I tried to breathe out or even slouch a bit, my busy completely fell out of the dress. On top of that, being on the shorter side the dress was way too long. It hit at a weird length right below my knee. I thought it was also too poofy.

If I had one less set of ribs this dress would work well... unfortunately I had to resort to plan B
