This dress was so comfortable! I wore it to a bridal shower and I got so many compliments!
My only complaint is it was a bit shorter than expected and the underlay is not white, it is more of a tan/offwhite, which was nice but a different look.

Beautiful and flattering!
This dress was fabulous! I received a ton of compliments on it, and my date thought I looked incredible! I wore it to a Great Gatsby themed formal, and even though I didn't know that was the theme when I ordered it, it still worked out well. The fit is true to size; unfortunately for me, I ordered a size up so it was a little looser than I would have liked. If you have a tummy you want to hide or are busty , this dress is the perfect fit. I really liked the length; I'm about 6'0 and it came a few inches above my knees. Short enough to be flirty but long enough to still be classy. The only thing I would gripe about is the 'white' part of the dress is much more 'off-white' than the picture shows which made it harder to find jewelry at the last minute, but I just wore it with black accessories instead. Even though the black lace on top is see-through, I still wore a regular bra with black straps and no one noticed. I loved this dress and I would rent it again in a heartbeat!

This dress was comfortable to wear and beautiful in person.
I found this dress to run large. I am normally a size 16 and I know that often the W changes the way things fit but the 14W was still a little baggy on me even with a 34HH bust size.

Amazingly comfortable and flattering
I normally wear an 18, but needed help zipping it and my friends were afraid to rip it, so I wore the 20 and it fit so comfortably. I wore a black bra and the straps blended with the black lace just fine. As everyone has commented the lining is cream not bright white, but I knew that from prior reviews. Got tons of compliments and wish I could buy it, looking forward to renting again!

This dress was WAY comfortable, and the A-line was so flattering, I didn't worry about my tummy.
Like I mentioned above, this dress was super comfortable! With the A-line, I didn't have to worry about wearing Spanx or sucking in all night - you girls know what I'm talking about. ;) The lining under the black lace IS nude (not white). I wore a nude bra - a black one would have been fine too. (I was too lazy to go strapless, and thought the nude straps showing looked subtle and fine.) The arm holes are a little on the large size, so if you carry your weight in your arms, no worries! I got so many compliments on this dress. A woman even stopped me in the bathroom to ask who the designer was - I couldn't remember, but I told her about Rent the Runway!

I got so many compliments!
It's so much fun to spend $80 on an expensive dress. You can just tell by the way it fits that it's better made than what I'd usually buy. It fit my hourglass/pear shape well, and hit at the knee. I'm really short so I suspect this dress could be short on some people. The only downside of the dress isn't really the dress's fault -- I forgot that a lace dress catches on things, so my earrings (which I also rented) kept getting stuck in the dress.

The dress fits like a glove!
I have lost a few pounds recently so I am in between dress sizes. I am usually a 16 so I ordered the dress in a 16 and a back up size in a 14. I ended up wearing the 14. I got many compliments on this dress. It was so comfortable and no spanx needed, since I have a bit of a belly that was a plus for me. The dress was great and looked almost brand new in both sizes unlike my back up dress which looked a bit shabby and used. I was very happy with this rental and the customer reviews really helped me to pick the right size. Using RTR again for my next event. Thanks again!

This dress is NOT Black and White, but Black and NUDE!!!!
I rented this dress for my bridal shower, but upon opening the box realized I could not wear it. I tried it on for future reference and it was cute...but it is Black and NUDE not Black and White like picture shows.

Great for a summer date night
Details - Well my first thought when I opened the box was - that's not a white underlay . Second thought , that's okay , it's really cute ! So it is a taupe or creme color which is doesn't hurt it's cuteness factor at all. It is a flattering a line dress that has sass and modesty . You will be fully covered in this dress , top maintains modesty which is nice for large chested girls ! We don't always want the girls screaming "hey look at me " am I right?! It was not too tight but hit at all the right spots to be fitted , I think it would work for someone that looks to cover their midsection . It flatters the legs as well. The back opening is cute but is not a showstopper . I wore it for my anniversary dinner , which it was great for but I would wear it to an engagment party , a birthday dinner , and a office dinner party. I will rent this again should the occasion arise . I wish RTR had a cute clutch to match it 's look but sadly everything was too over the top or too understated .

Super cute, classic, and sweet
This is a really cute dress. I have long legs, and it fell farther above my knee than on the model. I would have preferred it to fall at the knee, but this happens to me a lot with dresses so I wasn't surprised. The dress was super comfortable and fit in all the right places, even though it was a little bit big on me. But I'm losing weight right now and am not sure of my "true" size at the moment. The lining is thick, which makes the dress feel substantial even though it is lace. I was worried that the nude lining would make me look larger, but it is actually really flattering. I tried it with a nude bra that matched the lining and ended up wearing a black bra - the nude really shows and looks cheap, but the black blends right in under the lace (there is no lining over the shoulders of the dress, just lace). One note: the lace catches on everything. So just be extra careful not to brush against walls or chairs that might have nails/pins sticking out. But this is the way it is with any lace dress. I got a few compliments wearing this dress!

I looked and felt great in the dress all night long!
This dress fit perfectly. I ordered a 16 and an 18 for a black tie wedding. The 16 fit but was a little tight in the bust, which is why I chose to go with the 18. The dress is nude and black (not white), and I wore it with nude open toe pumps. I also wore it with a strapless bra, which I would recommend because of the laced top. I would definitely recommend this dress, I got tons of complements and I felt amazing in it!

It was the perfect dress for an outdoor wedding!!
This was a great dress for my event. I'm almost 6'0" tall so I was a little concerned about the length, but I don't think it was too short. I agree with everyone's comments about not needing a strapless bra - I wore a black bra and you couldn't see the straps through the lace. The dress was very cute as is - I just don't like my arms out so I added a sweater but I don't think it took away from the dress. Would definitely rent it again for another event!!

Nice dress but not my first choice.
I wore this dress for a friend's engagement party. This actually wasn't the dress I originally rented. However, RTR notified me the day before my rental was supposed to start that the dress I ordered was returned damaged so I would not be able to rent it. They were extremely helpful in getting me another dress. They also sent another size that I needed to the hotel I was staying at in time for the party. The only problem was that I was really set on the first dress I had chosen and I felt rushed picking out a second style to arrive on time. I was only given a couple of hours to choose and I was busy at an out of town work event. My biggest disappointment was the color. In the picture it looks like it was white underneath which I thought was unique. In person, it's actually tan/nude. I'm not a big fan of the lace over nude just because I feel like I see that in a lot of dresses. I thought the lace over white would be special. Besides the color disappointment, the dress was true to size and very comfortable.

I felt great in this dress!
I thought it ran a little bit on the large side. I anticipated that I would wear a 16, and rented the 18 as my back up. I wish I would have ordered the 14 as the back up. The dress was very comfortable! I felt great in it, and would definitely recommend it!

This dress was fabulous! I was able to party, party, party and felt sexy, fabulous and beautiful!
This dress was perfect for my friends wedding! It ran a little large and I was able to wear the 20W comfortably when usually I wear a 22 or 24. I received multiple compliments throughout the night and I didn't even have to wear Spanx (thank the lord)!!! I was disappointed when I received an email the day prior to my rental stating that the 22W I ordered was no longer available. RTR sent the dress in a 20W and 3 other 22W options at no additional charge - the only problem with the 3 choices were that they all were tight tight tight. It would have been nice if the stylist who picked the dress sent other A-line options, after all I'm at 22W here and no one needs to see me in a skin tight lace dress! Overall I am happy with RTR and will use them again for the upcoming weddings I have this fall!

I felt like a million bucks and my husband couldn't take his eyes off me. Score!
From the beginning, the whole experience was memorable. Whitney, my stylist made me feel at ease and helped me pick accessories as well. This wedding had people who were dressed to the nines and I felt I could hold my own with them. My dress felt comfortable and hid my belly fat. I felt confident, which is what all good dresses should do!

Stunning Yet Comfortable Dress
The dress has a nice A-line silhouette that is great if you're like me, and generally find sheaths too tight in the the hips. The bust line is straight across, which can sometimes be unflattering when you have a large buster but was dampened by the lace neckline. The dress felt very comfortable the whole evening. The fabric is a little thicker, but it weighs the dress down in a way the moves nicely and feels more luxurious.
