I didn't want to take it off!!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress to wear at our "rehearsal brunch" at One If By Land, Two If By Sea in the West Village. I knew I wanted something with a bit of Old Hollywood glamour, and boy, did it deliver! I couldn't keep track of the compliments, and had never felt lovelier - obviously, putting my wedding dress on the following morning topped that record, but I will never forget how beautiful I felt. Based on reviews, I was concerned about the fit and comfort but was pleased that while the 12 looked nice, the 10 fit MUCH better - it really hugged my waist and suited my hourglass figure in a way that few dresses have. I loved the fullness of the skirt - I have wide hips but felt it did not make me feel bigger; on the contrary, because the fit at the waist was so beautiful. The dress also suited my full bust nicely - when sitting down, the cleavage was a bit more than I usually prefer, and I did have to adjust it a few times, but the dress was so beautiful I didn't mind. I also didn't have the armhole issues that other reviewers complained about it, despite my very average (or perhaps a bit larger than average) arms - the straps were a bit awkward, true, and perhaps a bit snug, but I was totally comfortable. The weight, texture and colors of the fabric, and the silkiness of the lining all made this a divine experience. I didn't want to take it off, and will definitely be renting it again.

It was true to size. I wore minimalist gold sandal heels and a yellow dressy hat. It was perfect for a daytime wedding.

I felt like a million bucks wearing this to my niece's wedding and received so many compliments!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Pros: I'm a little overweight at the moment and this dress was perfect at concealing the extra pounds. I've never had a tiny waist but the cut of the dress made me look like I finally had a nipped in waistline, yay! I was in the dress for about 12 hours and it was extremely comfortable (i.e., no pinching, digging, slipping, etc.). Cons: I really don't have any negatives except that because of the scooped out neckline, this dress probably works best for women with somewhat broad shoulders and/or a full bust. I'm a 34C and have fairly broad shoulders so the sleeves stayed put, but it was hard to raise my arms over my shoulders on the dance floor. A very small price to pay for such a fabulous dress. Suggestions: I highly recommend wearing a chunky/flashy necklace with this dress, which fits with its 50s/retro vibe.I rented the "On The Town" necklace, which was perfect and garnered lots of compliments. I added my own belt to further define my waist and finish the look. Overall, I loved the dress and would happily rent it again for another fancy daytime event!

So beautiful, wanted to love it!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I have been eyeing this dress forever and was waiting for the perfect event to rent. I had a summer party and had everything styled before it even arrived, down to the clutch, shoes, cuff and earrings. When it arrived, it was as gorgeous as you'd expect a Lela Rose frock to be, and I was so excited! However, I was really disappointed with the fit. I'm typically a 0-2 in general and a 0 in Lela Rose. While I'm slender, I have some curves and am not straight up and down. This dress is probably best on tall girls with a sizeable chest, but otherwise slender (or proportionally smaller in the hips and bum). For this dress in particular, I think it's pretty important to fill out the top in order to have this lay nicely as it does on the model. Based on the dress and my size, this was fine, but the dress added a lot of unflattering bulk to my silhouette. In particular, the arm holes are tiny! It forced me to hold my arms in an unnatural way, and it was incredibly unflattering. Also, the cut of the waist was too large on me. Had it been more tailored, it would've defined my waist nicely and given me a slimmer appearance, but since it didn't fit appropriately, I looked thick throughout my midsection, and a belt did nothing to help (though I wouldn't style it as such in any case). The skirt was oddly tailored as well. Not a true a-line, it was more of a tulip shape through the hips before flowing more loosely down past my knees. This definitely added extra volume around my hips and behind, and my sister even said that the dress made me look about 20 lbs heavier- not good! Very disappointing- I tried to make it work, but in spite of how gorgeous a dress it was, if it doesn't flatter, it's not worth it! I ended up returning...

Perfect Summer Dress
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Absolutely beautiful dress! Though I am a little bit short, the dress did come down past my knees as more of a tea length. But other than that it fit perfectly and I received so many compliments that night. The sleeves can be a little awkward when lifting your arms, but a lady doesn't need to do that anyway. I loved the fabric and it flowed beautifully for a summer night.

I ended up singing in the wedding, and was so lucky to have a fabulous dress that I looked perfect for the ceremony!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

The silhouette reminds me of classic Dior, and the pattern definitely keeps the look fresh! Periwinkle and light yellow/green make this dress perfect for a summer wedding! The straps will fall right at the end of your shoulders, and the arm hole was a bit small, and the skirt is very full. I just loved wearing it- I can't think of a better dress for an outdoor wedding in the french countryside!

so cute!

This dress is so cute and an easy fit. Semi-high waist makes it really good for a pear or someone with a full figure. The shoulders are a little hard to wear as they sometimes feel like they are slipping off but if you ignore them it is totally fine!!!! I would completely recommend this for a family affair or an afternoon with your boyfriend's boss :)

This dress has a beautiful pattern. The fit was easy everywhere except for the arms because the arm holes were relatively small. The sleeves are slightly off the shoulder. The dress hit me right below my knee. It is fitted in the waist and the bodice, but the skirt is full. Great for bigger hips! It would be the perfect dress for a bridal shower or brunch!

Runs super small
Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I have to say I loved the look of this dress way more in person when it arrived. I had ordered it as my back up and luckily LOVED my first choice so it was no big concern that this one didn't fit AT ALL. I had read some of the other reviews mentioning it was running a little small but wishfully though they could be wrong. Seriously I couldn't even get the dress all the way on, let alone zipped up. While I do generally run between a 12 and 14. The reason for the size 14 is usually my bust, but with this dress I couldn't even get the dress straps up. By the looks of what I saw, even if I did get it on, that zipper wasn't even gonna come close. The fabric has no give whatsoever so I almost couldn't get it off either without enlisting help. The colors on this are really beautiful but I'd suggest only going for it if you're a waif. The cut looks like something that should flatter curves but it's just not built that way.

The moment a complete stranger told me that I needed to keep it for my children, and their children! I didn't have the heart to tell her it was a rental. The pictures do NOT do it justice. The colors and fabric are amazing. DEFINITELY worth it!

Odd fitting arms/shoulders - stunning fabric!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Wore this to a friend's wedding... Gorgeous colors and fabric - beautiful shape to the skirt. If you aren't tiny through the shoulders/back/arms, you may have a hard time raising your arms in this dress. The arm holes were quite restrictive (I'm usually size 2-4, 125 lbs) and I can't imagine how a girl with larger arms would manage this. It photographs gorgeously; just not the most practical cut ever.

pretty dress but did not wear
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This is a pretty dress but it made me look large in the hips - it runs large in the lower portion of the dress. I had a back up dress from rent the runway so I did not wear this one. The straps do fit on the top of the arms as shown on the model which is cute but not as comfortable for a long event. The material and color of the dress are beautiful.

pretty but a little warm
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
I found the waist generous. Only comment on fit is that with the off-the-shoulder arms, it is a bit restrictive. I wore it for a charity polo match outdoors, and it was lovely, but with the lining and double-layered skirt, it was a little hot. The fabric is thicker and shinier than I had anticipated- the skirt was a cream underskirt beneath the woven part. Very nice, better for spring than summer unless you're in air-conditioning.

Wore for my Bridal Shower
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress was perfect for my bridal shower brunch where I wanted to dress somewhat conservatively. I am 5'9" and I wore the 4, although the 2 would probably have been perfect it was not available, so I had a little bit of room up top. The cap sleeves are a nice touch, but they actually make an arm movement a little difficult -- one of the stylists had warned me about this -- not terrible, just not as easy to move. The picture does not do the fabric of this dress justice, it's a delicate and unusal fabric that make the dress feel as high end as it is. I received lots of compliments and felt feminine and extremely bridal, which was perfect. I rented the Kate Spade necklace to finish the look and couldn't have been happier.
