The fit was great. The dress was very comfortable. I wore it for Easter brunch. A tad shorter than I would normally go for church plus my legs aren't my favorite asset. Picture does it justice but the fit doesn't do much to minimize hips and stomach.

Too short for me :-( Very nice dress though!

Unfortunately I did not end up wearing this. The fit was true to size and the dress is made well. However, being 5'11" the dress was too short for me to be comfortable.

Wearing a dress I felt great in!

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
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.

This white dress is simple and adorable! The fit is really nice, especially with the A-line to hide your tummy. I know a lot of girls could take this dress and go wild with super cute accessories. It felt really nice on a warm day.

Very Baggy Dress

Size worn: 22W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
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.

Only wore this dress for a little while. Wish I had changed into it before I left our reception, but wore it out to a bar with friends after our wedding. The dress is beautiful with the lace. I loved it. This dress would be great for a bridal shower or bachelorette party as well. Would definitely rent this dress again!

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.

A little short

Size worn: NONE

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.

So much fun. Light, airy and comfortable.

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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.

Super cute dress that made me feel like a million bucks on my 30th birthday. First time using RTR and it was beyond my expectations! My husband couldn't believe how great I looked. The detail on the top of the dress is beautiful. The pictures don't do it enough justice. Definitely would rent again!

I wore this for my engagement brunch.

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
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 dress was very fresh - just a bit of texture and interest, but still demure. It fit beautifully and looked great in person and in the photos. A few reviews said that it was too short, but it hit right at the knee for me. Really loved it and would rent it again.

Bridal Shower Dress

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
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!!

Beautiful dress for my bridal shower!

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was just what I was looking for. It was a perfect fit and made me feel fabulous. The dress was very well made, with a substantial fabric, but not stiff. I wore spanx, but it was not necessary at all. I was comfortable and the dress was easy to wear. I felt the cut was flattering and highlighted my assets, while diminishing any problem areas. I loved it and felt the way a bride should feel....beautiful! Thank you RTR for another unforgettable experience! I can't wait for the next dress!

Rented this dress for a friend's 50th birthday. She wanted all her friends in white. this was my first rental from RTR and I really enjoyed have a pretty party dress to wear. The 16w fit me just right, I did wear my protective gear (foundational garments) under, but was still plenty comfortable.

I rented this dress for my bridal shower.

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
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)

Very Pretty and comfortable.

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress had a nice fit, it wasn't too snug anywhere and was really comfortable. I thought it looked really nice but I ended up not wearing it to my event and went for a more casual look overall. The two downsides to this dress were that the top portion was a bit too much fabric in the back and bunched out and it looked a little dingy (like white is apt to do after several uses). I actually regretted not wearing this dress for the first portion of the event I went to so I would say that I would still have worn it despite the two small flaws.

I normally wear a 14 in most pants and a L-XL in tops. I rented the 14 and the 16 as back up. I liked the length of the 16 but it was way too big. I am 5'10", so the dress was a little short for me but nothing too risque. Overall, I was very pleased with this dress for my bridal shower.

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: True to Size

I ordered an 18 and a 20 and to be honest, I couldn't really tell the difference from one size to another. The dress does hug the tummy area a bit, so I would suggest spanx, but all in all it was a really fun, flirty dress! I wore it to my bridal shower.

I got soo many compliments on this dress!!! Was happy I found this site!

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for my bridal shower. I'm not a big dress person so I wore a sweater with it & tall brown boots. The sweater made it a big more casual but it was perfect for me. I felt less self conscious with the sweater on. I'm not one to wear dresses often & white isn't the most flattering color. Many people said the dress ran big. For me it was true to size. I have a big chest, 40DDD so the 16 probably would have fit if it wasn't for my chest. This dress was perfect for my bridal shower & I was complimented by almost everyone at the shower. Will definitely rent more dresses down the road!

Absolutely LOVED this dress. I wore it for a bridal shower and it was awesome. The skirt has a slight flair which shapes great with your body. I normally wear a 20 and I wore a 20 in this dress as well. The 18 fit, but was a little tight in the bust and waist. Looks great with heels and chunky accessories.

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!

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!

Overall fit: True to Size

When I got the package, I tried the 14w on first. It was a perfect, and fit like a glove. But I ended up wearing the 16w because I wanted to be comfortable since I was running around preparing the venue for the baby shower I was hosting for my friend. It was a pretty, comfortable dress. I paired it with a mickey jacket to be one with the theme of the shower.
