The hint of beading dresses it up a bit. Wore to a black tie opt. wedding & loved it. Fits great. Fabric finish makes it more elegant too.

This dress, while a tad big up top, fits really well through the body. It is exetremely flattering even if you are small chested, as the bead and the "crumb catcher" as it was deemed, gives the illusion of a fuller chest. I was given many compliments, and it was just right for a black tie wedding.

I am now a forever fan of Lela Rose. The photo does not do this dress justice. Gorgeous detailing and amazing, classic fit!

Can't rave enough about this dress! The beading detail is stunning. The fabric is thick and expensive. It fit me like a glove, so flattering. Wore a 0.

Although I didn't wear this dress I did try it on & it's very cute!! So much cuter in person than on the site. the beading detail at the top makes the dress. it is a little too long for my taste.

Overall fit: Small
This dress is really pretty, but impossible for me to wear. The top of the 4 was far to small. I am a 34C in bras. Plus the bottom of the 4 was huge. The top of the 6 fit my chest, but the bottom was ridiculously huge. I would not recommend this for anyone with a chest, unless you do not have a broad back at all.

I wore this dress to a black-tie optional wedding and loved it. It was fitted in the right places and the fabric felt expensive.

I had to size up due to chest size, but this was a knockout dress. Stunner.

Comfort and style in one

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I typically wear a six, but the four fit me better because of a tighter fit on the bust. With the four, I didn't have to wear a bra due to the nice boning and structure of the top. The beading adds a bit of bling without being over the top.

This dress looks so much better online than in person and was too large in both the 4 and 6. I am normally a size 4.

Was not one of my favorite dresses from rent the runway. The top was a little large on me and the dress was definitely longer on me then on the model.

Cute dress, problems with the shape that it was in.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Con was that the hem drooped so we had to safety pin it up so that it was not visible. It looked like the dress had not been pressed or ironed accurately it terms of the front pleats.
