Classy and chic!
The dress was a beautiful aqua. Much nicer in person. Loved the bow detailing on the back of the dress. Thought the fit was very tight through the chest. I ended up wearing it without a bra because it was so fitted. Would have preferred the length to be a little shorter. It hit right in the middle of my knees. Overall, it's a nice dress. I would recommend it for someone who is small breasted and taller.

Perfect dress for spring formal for medical school!!!! The bow is adorable! I may have been able to fit into a 2---but I am a 4 true and true so the sizing was accurate. Perfect with wedges! Even wore it for Easter brunch the next day!!!!

Liked it more than I expected!
I got this dress for engagement photos. It fit well, although it was a little bit loose around my waist.. The fabric does not stretch, so keep that in mind when choosing a size! The dress was nice and the fabric is light and thin but not see-through.

Perfect fit. Great color. Perfect for the event!
Fit great around the waist. Long enough. The straps were a tad loose on top but overall it was great.

Gorgeous color and detailed back
Loved this rental. Rented this outside my unlimited subscription to ensure delivery. Both the 4 & 6 fit well, wound up wearing the 6 for comfort. This dress is slightly longer than i prefer but it worked well for a bridal shower. This dress has pockets and gorgeous detail on the back with a bow. Best part is you can wear a standard bra! Thick and lovely fabric. Will rent again for sure.

This dress is really comfortable. The back is adorable and I got tons of compliments.
Fits pretty true to size. However it was a little bit big in the top. Not so much that it didn't still look good though.

I received a ton of compliments! Love this dress
The dress is true to size. I was worried about length because I'm petite but it hit me right above the knee which is what I wanted. The dress is comfortable, fits great, and is very flattering. I wore this for Easter Sunday and received many compliments. Also, the color is fantastic!

The back with the bow is so cute.
Loved the fit! The pockets were great. It was a little heavier fabric, but I loved that. You can even wear a regular bra if your straps are tight enough that they stay put under the straps of the dress. Worked out just fine for me.

Beautiful blue color, adorable details on the back, and was perfect for dancing!
The back was my absolute favorite and I sadly didn't get any pictures of it! You can wear a normal bra without worrying about the strap showing. The color was also perfect for a winery wedding!

The back is what makes this dress special
The color and fit are nice, but nothing special. The open, scrappy back is what really made the dress a hit. The 4 fit nicely, and wasn't too short.

Great Color
Dress was extremely comfortable and figure flattering great for an athletic build. I was between the 2 and 4 and went with the 4 for extra room in bust area.

Lots of compliments, cute fun dress with enough length for a wedding!
Pros were that it was a great color, fun and flouncy with enough length for a wedding. The fit was great, which was good because there would have been no give! So many compliments received! It arrived fairly wrinkled, but a friend and I were able to steam it easily and I was able to wear it. If you don't have an iron that steams (mine was pretty cheap) and are in a time crunch, don't order it. There was also no room for error on the sizing as the waist is not flexible - I got lucky since it's very true to size.

So comfortable and fun!!
I was expecting to wear the 2 but I'm glad I got the 4. The 2 was just a little tight around my shoulder blades. The 4 was good but a little loose in some places. I'm kudu in between right now. The pockets are awesome and the color is perfect for spring and summer. I would recommend it!!

I wanted to love this dress!
This dress is so so cute and loved the material of it! I'm only 5'2" so the length was not what I expected - well past my kneecaps - and made me look wider. I didn't end up wearing this but it does have pockets ! I couldn't fit in the size 10 and the size 12 was a little snug but I do have a larger rib cage/bust area so I always have trouble with dresses with fitted waists.

Almost kept the dress
What a fun fun dress!!! It so flowy and it has POCKETS!!! It really hurt my feelings to send this dress back. The 12 was really really snug around my ribs and I wouldn't have been very comfortable so o went with the 14. I can't recommend this dress enough!

Perfect for an out door wedding not very heavy but not very light either. Nice combination
I had a couple issues with my dress. The zipper didn't go up easy or come down. My boyfriend had to pull the zipper up and it caught my skin a few times. Also it had 2 pulls in the back that I noticed as soon as I took the dress out of the bag. The dress is comfortable and was a hit I got so many compliments on it and the color was perfect. But besides the issue with the zipper it's a nice dress.

Compliments, cute, comfy, and pockets!
I rented this dress for a spring wedding and it was perfect! The length was just right - long enough for a formal wedding, and the fit and fabric left me feeling comfortable all night. I got so many compliments on the dress from the color to the cute bow in the back! Plus it had pockets!

Couldn't wear it :-(
I ordered this for graduation for my daughter. The dress is super cute but not made for a petite girl. Even the size 0 was loose and down to her knees. Luckily, I also rented a 2nd style.

PERFECT summer wedding dress :)
I rented this for a June outdoor wedding in MS. I'm generally a 4 or a 6, but the 4 was too snug in the waist. The 6 was an amazing fit! My biggest compliments were on the color and the back. The length was great and the material was lightweight. Would recommend a statement necklace for it. Overall, no complaints. My biggest concern was spilling something on it...!

Great dress for outdoor, summer wedding
Great color and material. 8 was tight in the bust (34 DD). 10 was big in the shoulders, but worked better for me. I liked the dress, but didn't think it was the most flattering for my figure. Received lots of compliments on the color.

Beautiful engagement photo dress!
I absolutely loved this dress. I was originally going to use this dress just as a date night with my boyfriend. However, he surprised me with a wedding ring and used the dress as engagement photos as well! It inspired me to have one of my wedding colors to be mint green :) I absolutely loved the fit as well! The fit and flare was perfect for my tall legs and shorter torso ;) also the bow on the back just added that little extra sweetness to the dress. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful and flattering dress!

Cute and classy!
I rented this dress for a daytime, summer church wedding. I usually wear a size 0 but it was unavailable so I rented the 2 and 4, especially since reviewers said it ran small. The 2 fit okay but was a little big in the chest and waist area, so I probably would have fit better in the 0. Despite this, I loved the dress and got many compliments. It was very comfortable. I wore a regular bra and the dress actually had snaps on the shoulders to hold your bra in place, which I loved! Can't wait to rent from Rent the Runway again!

Perfect Dress for a Bridal Shower
I loved this dress! The color is stunning and the bow on the back was so cute. I got so many compliments on it and I think I may have turned some people onto RTR! Fit was very comfortable, but unfortunately for me, was a tad tight in the chest, which is understandable (34DDD). If you are unsure of sizes, I would say go with the smaller size because the back and straps may too loose otherwise. Also, I recommend a strapless bra. Overall, gorgeous dress and I can't wait to rent again for the rehearsal dinner!

Cute and classy
I rented this dress for a summer wedding. It was super cute and fun to dance in! I typically wear an 8 in dresses but could have used a 6 for this one. The bust area ran a little large but the length was perfect for my height. Would definitely rent again.

Fun beautiful dress for a wedding!
Rented this dress for a summer wedding. It was perfect! The color is beautiful and it looks great! It is a little loose in the shoulders. Also, if you are a fan of spins while dancing it does flare so make sure you have appropriate attire on under it! I would absolutely rent this dress again!

Runs small
This dress is adorable but was too small so I couldn't wear it. My normal dress size is a 6 and I ordered the 8 and it didn't fit. I would defiantly order up.

Highly Recommend!
I was very excited to try RTR for the first time. It was a success! My backup size fit perfectly and the little details made this dress a hit (bow back, pockets). I loved the fit and it was very flattering. Highly recommend. Although the value of this dress is no longer $348. You cal now buy it on sale at katespade.com. My only con would be to update the sale cost of the dresses because it is deceiving to put the original value.

Great experience
The dress fit true to size and came on time. It was easy to use and to return. The only negative was my fault 100%. I love the color and the style of this dress which roped me into picking it for my event but it was not necessarily the most flattering for my body. I still wore it and all was good. Would I use rent the runway again? Yep, I have another dress coming next week.
