This dress was perfect for my engagement pictures
Too big for me, but I think it was because it was a "W"

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!
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.

Made me feel comfortable, cute, and young!
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
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.

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.

I wore this dress for my sister's high school graduation. It was a big hit!
The fit was great. I rented size 16 and 18 and the 16 fit better. It is simple yet still a great dress for any occasion. I loved it.

First time was a charm!!!
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.
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.

Rented for family photos.
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.

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 enjoyed this dress far more than I thought I would. it was youthful and comfortable. The fit was perfect and I'm tall so I enjoyed the slightly above the knees length.

Beautiful dress for my bridal shower!
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!

I feel pretty!
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.

A fun dress, perfect for a day event.
The overall look is a little sweet, even with the sheer shoulders.
