Conservative but cute

This dress is stretchy on the top which is good since the zipper does not sip up very smoothly. The length was longer than anticipated, at the ankles. Cute 3D bow design throughout.

Cute style, didn't work on me.

Way too large. The material has stretch to it and would look cute tight around the torso, but this size on me didn't work.

Softer than expected :)

Beautiful dress. Runs a bit large and perhaps it was the sizing but the skirt felt a bit matronly. It was much softer and lighter than I expected. Ultimately I went with a different dress but I would definitely rent again

Fabulous dress.

I loved the look of the dress and it was fairly light without being see-through. The length was a bit odd, I should have probably worn flats with it, but I did not. I love the neckline. I had to wear a tank top under the dress because my bra would show due to the cut if the armhole and my small frame.

Classy

I titled this classy, as it is, but it also felt very frumpy on me. I was expecting to love it, but it did nothing for my shape. The fabric is lovely but all in all not a fit for me.

Perfect fit, flows beautifully

Gorgeous dress, so many compliments. Someone remarked how even more beautiful it was when I walked and it swayed. It really is a stunning spring dress.

A lovely worn out dress.

This dress is worn out. I imagined this to be a heavier material but it is light and soft. I am bigger on top so just felt it is a bit tighter on my chest even though I fit into small and size 2 in most things.

Tent

It runs VERY large. I have a large chest 36H so when it fit my chest I was very happy, however it completely bagged out from there so it was like I was wearing a tent. Not flattering at all if you have a large chest at least not on me

Unique shape and easy to wear

High neck and flair sleeves made this piece stand it. Very comfy, zipper was a little sticky but not impossible in the back.

Very conservative

This dress was a very cute style, but I felt a bit too covered up in it. The smocking gives it a really casual style, but the high neck makes it seem like it would be better for a more dressed up occasion, so I couldn't really figure out when to wear it. Ultimately, it was a little too big on me (the fabric doesn't do much to give you a shape), and had a bit of a conservative vibe. Definitely cute for someone else, just not my style.

This dress was the reason I joined Rent the Runway

The fabric is stretchy, so if you're in between sizes it is likely to still fit you. I literally travel from 16-22 and wore a size 16R with no issues whatsoever. Honestly the fabric is amazing and it fits your form well.

Way too big. The top was fitted, but the skirt part made me look considerably bigger than I am.

Not all all flattering.

the material is nice and the dress was comfortable. I received a lot of compliments. It is a long!

Dress is long. I am 5'10 and it fell where it is on the model. it made me feel bigger than what I was but I don't think it looked bigger on me.

Lovely date night dress - could be dressed up

This is such a lovely dress - the top photographs beautifully. I get scared when I see silk in the mix but this dress is so smartly designed that the side panels are really stretchy and I'd imagine it would fit nearly anyone. I typically wear a 12 and I almost want to try to size down next time because the texture of the dress adds a little bulk. Could definitely be dressed up for a formal event. A chic dress that will look a bit more fashionable than the standard fare at weddings and parties.

Great details on this classically cool dress

Perfect dress to wear to a surprise engagement party at a wine bar. The white spots are like little horizontal tufts, which adds some interest and dimensionality. Fit was great, fabric was light but not so light it felt like resort wear, and I got tons of compliments. The smocking on the side of the bodice mean you can probably go up/down one size from your usual (I am usually a 2 in KS, but I could only get a 4 and it was great). I paired it with gold ankle boots, a messy bun, and simple earrings to keep it from feeling overly formal. That being said, you could definitely dress it up with heels and fancier accessories. I could see this dress at anything from a graduation to an outdoor wedding, depending on how you style it.

Flattering & fun!

I LOVED this dress! The sleeve kept it fun, the neckline was different, and the bow detailing throughout caught people by surprise. It was comfortable, free-flowing, and I received compliments all night!

It was really comfortable and material is expensive looking.

It was a bit more loose than I'd like and the sleeves were very Game of Thrones - like. Wore it to work and threw on a leather jacket on top to not look like a pilgrim. Not sure this style was flattering for someone short and curvy.
