I wish I owned this dress!

What a gorgeous dress. I originally ordered a white dress for my bridal shower but it didn't fit and the size I needed wasn't available, as was the case with several other white dresses. So Rent the Runway sent me this dress as a replacement and I'm so glad they did. It is a beautiful dress and I received so many compliments. The material is thick but it is a comfortable dress. I'm typically an 8 but I was not sure how it would fit because there were not many reviews for this dress yet, so I got a 10. It fit well but I think I would have been good with an 8. I would rent this dress again, I loved it so much.

Great details, lots of compliments

This was the backup dress I ordered and ended up wearing to the wedding. I was worried about the sizing and ordered the 2 and that was a mistake for me. It fit, looked great on and was flattering but I would have been more comfortable in the 0. The 2 was a little baggy in the waist and bust but not really enough for anyone else to probably comment on. Nice material, great embroidery and details. I received compliments all night on the dress and its details. Also, it has pockets which was a great surprise! Would definitely recommend.

The most beautiful dress I have ever worn!

I have an athletic body type with not many curves. Because of this I think I should have gotten the size two because the straps were a bit large. But over all this is be most beautiful dress I've ever worn. I received several compliments throughout the entire night, and was told I had the most gorgeous dress at the wedding, besides the bride of course!

Beautiful dress!

Beautiful colors, detail. Received a lot of compliments! The dress was a little snug from the waist up but not so tight that it wasn't comfortable. Bottom of the dress is quite fluffy which can make you look a little bit bigger.

Prettier in person

I have seen this dress multiple times but was sure about it. I got it as a backup dress and was super surprised when it came in. It is very pretty!! I ended up not wearing it because the party I was going to wasn't fancy enough for this dress. I will rent it again!!

Absolutely beautiful, compliments all night.

This dress fitted perfectly. I could wear a bra with it, it wasn't short to the point that I couldn't jump (dance) or bend over. Everyone was asking me where I got my dress! So unique and detailed. I did not want to return it. The pockets on the dress helped out so much! I had my phone and keys in there all night, didn't even fall out.

Great replacement for a no show shipment

This is a top quality dress! Incredible fabric and detail on this dress. Truly a fantastic designer dress. For me, as I'm quite long waisted, it hit me high and made the dress a bit uncomfortable, but I still loved it and got a ton of complements on the dress, design and obvious high quality.

Absolutely stunning

This dress was amazing I cannot say enough good things about it. I was showered in compliments all night even by the bride herself. It was so comfortable and so beautiful. I liked it best with nude straps shoes and a flirty pony. It's even more beautiful in person. I wore one size down than my usual.

Cute dress! Size up if you're well endowed :)

I was planning on wearing this dress for my rehearsal dinner but opted for a white shift dress instead. I usually wear a size 4 but because I'm a 32DDD, I sized up so the girls would fit & it worked out perfectly. The material & colors are beautiful. The skirt is lovely & voluminous. However, I'm not 100% sure how I felt about the flowers on the top...because I'm well endowed, I felt they stood out a bit more than they should.

Felt festive while being comfortable for an Easter brunch.

Metallics are golds, silvers and pinks so I went with rose gold accessories but you can go in any direction. You can wear a standard bra and there are pockets!

This dress was absolutely beautiful! I recommend it for an event where one wants to stand out.

The fit of the dress was true to size. The bust was a bit tighter though. Make sure to wear a slip with the dress because it's a bit itchy up top, but it's nothing too unbearable. Overall it was a great dress, I wore it for my birthday.

Special stand-out look

Dress was fun and so different from the LBDs. Fit was a little funny through the skirt as it really puffed out. Top was so pretty in person, could easily wear a 'regular' bra.

Perfect dress. Perfect process

Beautiful dress. The detail is stunning and the look on is gorgeous. I was nervous about the color on my skin and with my hair (I'm fair skinned and brunette). It was just right. I wore it with a soft chain and nude heels. Got plenty of compliments! RTR was fast, reliable and so easy! Will do it again.

Lots of fabric

I took this away on vacation. I got a size 4 since there wasnt a 2 available. The 4 fit but there was so much fabric on the bottom I didnt find it flattering. The dress itself, the fabric, the details are beautiful. It just wasn't my style.

Beautiful and unique

I loved this dress, not only because of the design but the pockets and ability to wear a normal bra and underwear. Why it retails for so much is a little surprising - the fabric feels cheap. There were so many loose strings hanging off the skirt I had to trim them. Otherwise a fun dress.

Shine on

Initially I was afraid to wear this cause it's so shiny and I thought it was too formal for exhibiting at a trade show in Paris. I brought it on my trip anyway and decided to be daring and wear it, which was the best choice I made! I paired it with black tights and flats and I got heaps of compliments on it and it was so comfy all day - not scratchy at all. AND it has pockets. Done deal. Note that if you're big in the chest there is no give so size up. Get this dress!

Birthday bowling!

2nd time I've rented this dress. Fits true to size- the 12 fit like a glove but opted for the 14 this time as knew would be active. Who doesn't want to wear a comfortable sparkly dress to the bowling alley?!? POCKETS were awesome, securely hid iPhone 6S and lipstick no bulge or falling out.

Fit was almost perfect. I have a small chest so it was a little baggy up top but that's expected. Definitely flattering for all shapes and sizes!

I rented this dress for my bridal shower tea party and it was absolutely perfect!

I don't usually leave reviews but this dress for me in all of the right places and made me feel like a princess. I'm usually a size 8 (bust 32DDD and waist 29") and the 8 fit me ok but the 6 was more form fitting and made my waist look smaller. But both sizes looked great! I would definitely recommend this dress! It's very special!

Meh

This dress was sent as a replacement since someone didn't return my original dress in time. I give props to RTR for trying but this dress made me look like a shiny over stuffed couch cushion. The top squished my chest area and the bottoms fluffed out adding weight to my hips. It was also way too short for me. Very pretty on the hanger but not my style.

RTR Stylist Review!

I felt like such a fairy in this dress! I actually called this style the "fairy dress" when I first saw it. It is so incredibly beautiful with all of the intricate details it showcases. It is like a work of art! This style definitely fits true to size. I wore a size 0 and was perfectly comfortable in it dancing all night at my cousin's wedding. People could not stop complimenting this dress either! It is more stunning in person so I couldn't blame them. Paired with strappy heels and a gold or blush clutch makes this style perfect for any special occasion you have.

Regal

Absolutely gorgeous dress!! It is even more beautiful in person than in pictures. I typically wear a size 8, and i rented an 8 & a 10. I have very large bust (32H) and the 10 was more flattering because of the extra room. I was a little worried it would wash me out; as someone with extremely pale skin, I rarely wear light colors. However, because it was so shiny and glittery, it looked lovely, and actually brought light to my face. would definitely rent this dress again!

Tall friendly, bra friendly

I normally wear a 4 or 6 or size or size small in dresses. Was about 124lbs at the time of wearing this and I'm 5'9. I ordered a 0 and size 2 after reading reviews about the dress being too large. Ended up wearing the 2. As a tall gal I wasnt sure if thr baby doll look of this style would make my legs look too long (by a short cut) for my work gala. It did not! Plenty of length and layering under the skirt is so cute. I was also concerned the v cut back of the dress would require a special bra. Nope! The pockets were amazing to have while working the event. So many compliments on this dress. Every visit to the womens restroom even more compliments.

Super cute!

Adorable! I wore this to a wedding and fit right in. It does flare a bit at the waist, so it did make me feel slightly cupcakey, but it was still cute. I'm between a 6-8, and the 8 was a comfortable fit.

Sparkle and shine unless you have a big bust

I thought maybe this dress would work for me because even with a full bust, I have fairly small shoulders. Unfortunately I was wrong. I couldn't zip it up at all. I typically wear a 6 and the occasional 8, but my H cup bust gave me extra arm fat and an unflattering cut. Don't trust any reviews that say you can wear this with a larger bust. The dress was even a bit loose on the waist. I would say it's cut for small busted petite sizes.

Beautiful dress. Lots of compliments. My husband didn't love it, thought it looked a little like drapes or something! Haha. In all honestly the little flowers on the top portion of the dress I could have taken or left. Overall, the dress was so pretty though.

Unforgettably beautiful

One of the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen. The detailing is gorgeous. I would say that the color on the skirt leans towards adult fuchsia, and the dress looks better with metallic accessories.
