Beautiful and comfortable

This dress was so pretty and fit perfectly. The fabric was also really comfortable. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to wear it because of a stain, but I would love to rent this style again some time so that I could wear it! The fabric is a little on the thick side, and nicely soft. Loved it, just wish I could have worn it!

Photographed well

I rented this dress for my Engagement party and received many compliments. I didn't really care for it personally, it photographed nicely but in person the dresses looked dingy and worn like an old dress washed a lot. And the top was big in the back but I wore a jean jacket so no one could see.

Sweet and bridal but not obnoxious

I loved this dress! I felt like it was true to size. A tad short on me, but I'm tall so that's nearly always true. I think this would be the perfect dress for a bridal shower (where I wore it) or a fun, summer party.

Perfect for my Bridal Shower

This is the perfect fit and flare dress for curvy women! I wore this for my bridal shower and got so many compliments. It was super comfy and best of all, I could eat and still feel beautiful! I felt I probably could have fit into a 12, but was plenty happy with how the 14 fit. I wear a 40DDD and it fit my busy beautifully. I felt this dress was very flattering and like that the girls were covered.

This dress was adorable! Perfect for my bridal shower!

The dress was wonderful! I carry most of my weight in my hips/butt, so the 16 fit great. I was able to wear a supportive bra user without the straps being seen!

This dress was perfect for my bridal shower!

I usually wear a 14 but was happy I went with the 14w, it was comfortable and flattering to sit in, and hid my trouble area (tummy) well. I wore with a nude bra so you can't see straps. I got a ton of compliments and was so pleased that I found such a perfect white dress for a reasonable price!

Perfect for my bridal shower!

16 fit well and true to size, but it lacked shape a bit. Be prepared to add a belt around the waist to add shape, and it's perfect! Dress was flowy and flattering!

Super cute!

This dress was adorable! My husband's job threw a "winter white" party and I was scrambling to find a white dress that was flattering and appropriate. This was both! I got so many compliments on it. It fit nicely to my curves without being too tight. The only slight concern was that the back is a little low. But it hid a strapless bra, so all was well. I highly recommend this dress!

Comfy and styling for a day of wine tasting for a bachelorette party!

This dress was so comfortable! I had no problem lasting all day during a wine tour for a friends bachelorette party (she requested we all wear white). Nice fit, great length and cute back.

Back up dress, very cute and flattering but didn't wear.

I rented this as my backup dress for my bridal shower. I tried it on and it is very cute but runs a little big so I was glad I had another option. If it fit better, it would have been much more flattering but overall, a good dress for an afternoon shower or day time event.

I wore this to dinner en blanc in NYC.

The dress was very wide on me, but beautiful. It was definitely too big in the waist and perfect in the arms. It worked for the occasion, as anything goes. The detail of this dress is very pretty but the exact dress I received was very worn.

Wearing a dress I felt great in!

I normally wear a size 18, but thankfully ordered a size smaller as my backup. The 18, whole it looked like it for in the front was totally gaping in the upper back. The size 16 fit perfectly and I got tons of compliments on it at the bridal shower my friends gave me. I only hope the dress I selected for the shower my family is giving me is as flattering.

Very Baggy Dress

This dress runs a lot bigger than I was expecting. Because my normal size was already reserved, I got this in a size larger than I normally would wear. It was so baggy on me that I could not wear the dress. I would recommend ordering a size down for your second size - especially if you have a smaller bust/waist. Other than the fit - the dress was beautiful. The length hit right above the knee and the dress was lined well, so it was not see through.

A little short

Adorable dress with a really great fabric. The dress felt well made and runs just a touch on the big side. I didn't end up wearing it because I found a dress that was a little longer that I preferred. For girls who are self-conscious about their legs, this dress might be a little short.

I wore this for my engagement brunch.

The dress definitely runs large, but I think that's because of the flare of the skirt. I normally wear a 16 in pants but a 14 in tops, and the 16W was too big. The 14W was my backup and fit perfectly. Loved the length (just above my knees). I wore this for my engagement party (it was a brunch) and it was comfortable enough to play lawn games in. If I did it again, I'd pair it with a sash or belt.

The fabric of this dress was beautiful! I received so many compliments all night.

I'm currently in between dress sizes. I would normally wear a size 18, but luckily I also ordered a 16. The dress runs a little large in my opinion. You also are going to need a nude or strapless bra with this one. Otherwise, was just wonderful.

Bridal Shower Dress

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and absolutely loved it! It does run a little large - I'm a 16 (pushing 18, thanks wedding stress) in street clothes and this was the tiniest bit big on me. I ordered the 18 as a backup, but it definitely would have been too large. I think one reviewer mentioned that it's a little plain once you get it on - this is true. I loved it, but I wish that I had given myself enough time to accessorize it with a belt or bow or something. I got tons of compliments on it, and people especially loved the detailing on the back. I would definitely order it again!!

I rented this dress for my bridal shower.

I'll be honest, I didn't love the dress at first. I wish the underlay had a sweetheart neckline rather than straight across, it would be more flattering. I also felt like it made me look a bit heavier than I am because it didn't have much of a waist. Once I added a belt, I felt much better about it and I received several compliments on it at the event. It was very comfortable and very bridal. I also personally thought it ran a little large (I am usually a 16/18 and I wore the size 14)

Engagement photos! Ended up not using this dress due to size and color

The fit is very flattering if you are belly-conscience. Otherwise the neckline went a little to high for me and the color was more grey-white vs white white.

I wore this for my spring bridal shower & received many compliments on the dress and unique fabric.

The dress ran a little big, so I wore a size down from what I usually wear. It was nice to have some breathing room and look great on a day when so many eyes were on me! Pair with a colorful necklace!

I wore this for my bridal shower and it was PERFECT!

This dress was absolutely perfect for my bridal shower. I got so many compliments all morning long. I usually wear a 16W, but when I put that one on (since it is a white dress) it showed EVERY imperfection, so I opted to wear the 18W instead. It was a little large, but it was VERY comfortable and it still showed my curves (but in a good way instead of it being WAY too tight). If you are looking for a fun, flirty and comfortable bridal shower / rehearsal dinner dress, I HIGHLY recommend this!

So much fun. Light, airy and comfortable.

This dress was a bit small, so I had to wear the 20. It was super comfortable and totally appropriate as the hostess dress for a wedding. It came to knee length and I wore it with some natural wedge sandals. The entire dress was crochet with the underlying slip that hid my panty line very well. Also, the is so much detail in the crochet at he top, that my bra strap was hidden (it was bright green). Someone stopped me and asked where I got it from, I told her renttherunway.com. Thanks guys.T he only problem I had was with UPS. They delivered the box all torn and beaten. I could see the garment bag through the hole in the corner of the box. Relived that it wasn't torn or stained.

Wonderful bridal shower dress!

I wore this dress to my bridal shower. This dress is so cute- I got many compliments on it! I ended up wearing the larger dress because it was more comfortable. Both dresses were clean and did not appear to have any noticeable signs of wear. I really liked the sleeves and the length, which for me was at my knee. This was my first RTR experience and it went very well!

Perfect for winter wedding engagements!!!

I wore this dress for a surprise engagement dinner in the middle of winter. The dress runs true to size and it pairs well w/ stocking and boots as well as sandals for nicer warm weather. The zipper can be a little tight so I suggest trying it on the second you can to make sure it's easy to put on by yourself. The sleeves were not tight and definitely not itchy. The dress is very light and you may need a bra the color of you skin so it doesn't show by the top. Great dress.

Very cute dress.

I didn't get to wear this dress, but it was very sweet and fit well. I eloped in February and my family wanted to throw a dinner party for us so that is why I rented it. It wasn't fancy enough to wear to the event, it was a little too casual.

Fun and flirty dress that hides any flaws

I wore this dress to my Bridal Shower. I actually rented two dresses because I didn't want to end up with no options if either didn't fit... well they both fit so my only struggle was deciding which to wear! The other dress was coral, so I wore that in the evening when we went out to dinner. Since it is a 'W' fit, the chest ran a little bit since I have a smaller chest. The overall fit was nice and flattering. I wore nude colored spanx underneath to smooth out everything that I probably didn't need but it helped me feel confident and comfortable. Very happy with this rental!

I wore this for my bridal shower

Overall, the dress looked nice and I received a lot of compliments. It was a little large in the waist for me but I need larger sizes because I'm busty. You can definitely tell this dress has been worn quite a few times though. Overall, I was happy with the look.

Photographed great for my daughter's baptism.

The dress was comfortable, however since it is white and lace, when you looked at it very closely, you could see that it had been worn several times before. It photographed very well and worked great for what I needed since I am still holding onto some baby weight and didn't want to buy a dress I would only wear once.

I got married at the courthouse in this dress!

My husband and I got legally married at the courthouse prior to our big party wedding. I wore this dress and it was perfect for a Saturday AM wedding at court. I opted for the smaller of the two sizes and felt like it was perfect for the occasion. I styled it with a fascinator from RTR, opal earrings, and bright blue shoes as my "something blue." Not a great photo but is the best one of the fit of the dress.
