love this dress

I rented this dress for a black tie weddind and I could not have gotten more compliments. The dress is incredibly flattering and I felt great in it. I wore it with no bra since I have a small bust, did not want the straps to show and had no strapless bra with me. Was completely fine though. Perfect holiday/wedding dress.

Wore this dress for a tv segment and I really felt confident and lady-like. So pretty!

I love the feminine details on this Lela Rose. It hit me around the knee but I kind of liked the "lady-like" look. The silver material is beautiful and soft. Ran very tight on the chest so I'd recommend sizing up if you are large than a size B.

Incredible dress...wore for NYE. Stunning and very comfortable. Fits true to size. I ordered a 4 and a 6, but the 6 worked great and I never tried on the 4. Tons of compliments, and several women even commented that their husbands loved the dress too. I paired with simple earrings, a bracelet, a ring, and Christian Louboutin black patent heels. No need for a necklace.

Great Dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

I am 5'7, size 6 and this fit perfectly. I was given so many compliments including "you have my favorite dress of the night". It was even comfortable! Loved it. This was my first Rent the Runway experience. I don't think I'll buy another dress for an event again. You can't really wear a special dress twice anyway!

Beyond fabulous dress and MANY compliments! Made me feel glamourous and chic. A very classy dress.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I ended up renting this dress by default as a size in the original dress I rented wasn't going to be available at the last minute. I found this gorgeous Lela Rose dress and loved wearing it. It was chic and classy. And, very glamourous. It was perfect for an evening wedding in the city. I could not believe the number of compliments I received on the dress! The dress runs true to size. I loved that the top of the dress was very fitted and it was a nice contrast to the more full, pleated skirt. It didn't overwhelm my size 2 frame in the slightest. It was also a very comfortable dress to wear. I also appreciated that because of the applique at the neckline, I didn't need to bother with accessories. I did wear a nice pair of simple stud earrings but that was all the dress needed. I wore open-toed heels. I ended up wearing this with a standard bra with skinny straps but would highly advice wearing a racer back bra with this so as to avoid fiddling with wayward bra straps all evening. The dress was a homerun and I can't wait to rent from Rent the Runway again. The stylists were beyond helpful and really came through when my original choice wasn't an option. I am actually VERY glad that my first choice wasn't available because I loved this great Lela Rose dress!

Loved wearing this dress!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size

The 0 fit like a glove, the 2 also fit well and by the end of the night I wished I had worn the 2 instead of the 0 it since it had a little more room. I felt like I stood out, the dress has a perfect amount of shine for an evening event and stands out. So many people complimented me on the dress and I felt really lovely. I would wear this dress again if it weren't so memorable!

The dress is fitted on top and plays up your waistline. Also the cut of the neckline is very flattering for your arms and shoulders. The fabric and embellished neck make this dress unforgettable!

I didn't end up wearing this dress, but it was a fantastic backup. I love the fabric - just enough shimmer. The dress is also pretty structured but not so much that I felt stiff when I tried it on.

This dress is stunning. I was in love with the fabric and color. It fits true to size. The beading along the neckline is gorgeous - I didn't have to wear a necklace. It's a very comfortable dress to wear too. I would rent it again in a heartbeat.

Pretty + comfort = Amazing!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Loved this dress, it was hard letting it go! I usually fall between a 2 and 4, which I ended up wearing the 4 as the 2 was too small in the chest area. If you are larger on top, you will have to size up. The 4 fit perfectly in the waist and ribcage area, and while it was snug in the chest area, it still was quite comfortable and the metallic fabric of the dress showed so beautifully. The neckline area is made up of lots of clusters of flowers made of black ribbon in which the centers all have beautiful, sparkly gems/glass beads, thus not needing to worry about a necklace or big showy earrings.

sophisticated sparkle

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was fun to wear: sparkly, flouncy, and fab for an evening wedding high atop the city. Plenty of compliments. I am usually between a 6 and 8, but the 8 fit perfectly as I do have a large-ish rib cage. I was happy that the fit and flare style worked with my long torso too, as this is often not the case with similar styles. The fabric is quite thick, so I can't really imagine wearing this in the summer.

Was not able to wear this dress, and the top was not as unique as the picture depicts.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The style was not flattering for my hourglass shape, so I ended up not wearing this dress at all. It was also a little snug in the arms, and the zipper felt like it was going to break off as my husband zipped it up.

Beautiful and Stylish Dress!!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a winter wedding, and it was perfect. It was glamorous enough to wear for the event, and it moved very nicely. The 2 was impossible to get zipped, and even though the 4 fit, it was tight and uncomfortable by the end of the night. The bodice was what fit tightly, which surprised me. I sucked it up and danced the night away anyway!

Very tight arm holes

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I have worn a lot of Lela rose dresses with full skirts and always found them to run large on top and worn a size two. This one was much too tight in the arm holes and around my chest. Loved the dress and detail but I should have sized up.

Just a bit small in the bust. Was able to get a 10 in time.

Too tight across the bust. Was able to get a 10 in time but was loose everywhere else. Was happy to have the wiggle room for a fabulous dance party.

This dress is even more gorgeous in person. It was so comfortable and everyone loved it. I wore it to my cousin's wedding and it looked beautiful glistening in the sunlight. I wish I owned this dress because I would absolutely wear it again. I highly recommend it. It is tighter in the bodice but loose in the stomach and hips which is great because I just had a baby not that long ago.

People gave me compliments all night! :)

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress looks even better on! I received multiple compliments all night. I normally wear a 10, but I am busty so the 12 fit perfectly. I noticed others mentioned that it was 'true to size' but since I was not able to try my normal size and the 12 fit given my larger chest, I would say that I feel it fits small. Unfortunately, I was not able to order a back up size (which would have been my real size) because it was out of stock. The zipper is a little hard to manage. Not due to fit but rather, it was just a tough zipper to pull up so I did need help with that. So keep that in mind when getting dressed if dressing alone! Overall it is a beautiful dress and people will notice! :)

I wasn't able to wear the dress.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I didn't end up wearing the dress unfortunately. I usually wear a size 6 and I ordered a 6 and an 8 and while the 8 fit better, the bust was still a bit tight. I have a big chest though (32DDD). The real problem was that the length was just way too long. I'm 5'3'' and both dresses fell went well over my kneecap and it just wasn't flattering. I sent both back and wore my backup dress. Sad!

Beautiful dress with the right amount of sparkle for NYE!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
I rented this for New Year's Eve in the size 2 and size 4. I would have sized up to the 6 but it was unavailable. As other reviewers have said, this dress runs very small in the bust. I am only a 34B and the size 4 just barely fit me in the bust. I couldn't wear a bra with it. So I would definitely recommend sizing up. Besides that the dress is beautiful and classy. It hit at about my knees. I would love to wear it again!

This dress was perfect for our holiday party. I got so many compliments on it, it was unbelievable. It had such a great fit. It was a little tight in the armpit area, but other than that it fit great on me. Definitely would recommend this dress for your next event!

Beautiful but didn't fit

Size worn: NONE

This dress is a beautiful silver fabric with black underlay. But it didn't fit. Too tight in the rib cage. I'm a 34 DD. I should have gotten the 12. So sad it didn't fit.
