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!

Very unique dress & tons of compliments!!
This dress first and foremost is extremely comfortable! Along with the comfort it's so unique! I can't even count the number of times i was complimented on my dress at the wedding, then by complete strangers just walking down the street. I would highly recommend this dress to anyone!!

The event was a fundraising gala under a big tent. This dress truly stood out in a crowd LBD's!
This dress runs true to size or a little bit large. I usually wear a 6, but the 4 was a better fit for me. I loved that you could wear it with a regular bra and no special undergarments. It was super comfortable and even had pockets. My friend who is a 34 DD rented it for a different occasion and looked great. I'm a 34 A, and it fit me perfectly too. So it seems to work for many body types. The shimmery color was stunning, and I received so many compliments all night long. Run, don't walk, to rent this dress!

I wore this dress for my bridal shower. I wanted something springy and bridal, but not white.
Runs fairly true to size, since I am short it could have been pulled up at the shoulders for a slightly better fit on me, but it was not noticeable to anyone else. Loved the detail work on the dress. The texture on the top along with a slight sheen to it, the pockets in the skirt. Overall it is gorgeous, I received so many compliments on the dress. Loved it.

Honestly, this dress did not do it for me.
This was a backup dress for me and once I tried it on, even if my other dress did not fit, this dress was not even an option. I did not like the design of the skirt at all and the material was not my style. I was hoping the real dress was prettier than online because it might have potential, but it right away went into the return bag.

Oh, how I wanted to love thee....
Received this dress as a backup when my original order was unavailable. It is a beautiful, super unique dress but I think it takes someone with a ton of confidence (or quirkiness) to pull it off. The skirt is gorgeous. The embellishments on the chest however are major. I'm not talking stitching, more like full on flower-like embellishments that are sewn onto the dress. I found it to be beautiful in its own way, but my husband was not a fan, my best friend hated it and my little sister said it looked like a Christmas ornament dress. Sigh. Needless to say, I ended up squeezing myself into my original backup dress but I was sad I couldn't make this work. Definitely high end, high quality but probably not something you'd choose unless you're a little more adventurous or fashion forward. Fit was very true to size.

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.

Takes a certain personality and style to pull it all together!
I rented this dress to wear to a Wonderland-themed formal at my college. I usually wear a size four, but I'm glad I took the other reviewers' advice and ordered a size down for my free backup because the four swallowed me whole. Honestly, I was pretty thankful that I had to wear the size two because the four that I received was missing beads in a few places - It looked like it had been poorly taken care of by some renter. The two, however, was in great condition. The fabrics used in the dress look and feel great, and the skirt is very flattering for someone (like me) who has a bit more to love in the hip area. Overall, this is a really unique piece! I'm very satisfied with my rental.

The dress is beautiful, like a work of art. No good for a petite person because the print and accents are very overpowering. Didn't end up wearing the dress but think it would look better on a taller person.

Interesting fabric, pretty silhouette, just not right for me.
Lovely, unusual fabric and pattern, with rich details. The skirt was too poofy on me, the material a little stiff, and the dress was a little large (a size 2 might have worked better but wasn't available). Also, the colors look very rich and pretty in person but a little washed-out in photographs, and the rosy-pink and greyish-silver spots of color in the skirt didn't seem to go with the warmer neutral colors of the bodice. Not the right dress for me but certainly beautiful.

Love it
This is a beautiful dress in person. Both the 10 and 12 fit but the boning was a little sharp in the 10 so I went with the 12 and it was very comfortable. Standard bra and underwear can be worn. The pockets are lovely. The flower details on the top are more noticeable than in the photos. The colors in the skirt are stunning. Perfect dress for a spring/summer slightly more formal wedding.

Wore a different dress because this was large on top.
I received this dress in 6 and the Nicole Miller Navajo silk maxi in 6L after the original dress I ordered (Marchesa Spices of Morocco maxi) was unavailable at the last minute. I ended up wearing the Nicole Miller. I absolutely loved this dress, but it was big on top. I usually order a 4 and 6 because I am smaller on top, and I needed a 4 in this one, which was unavailable. The dress is gorgeous in person and I would love to wear it for another occasion.

Couture, unique stand out in the crowd dress!
I rented this dress to host a fashion show fundraiser and it is one of my favorite RTR rentals. It is extremely comfortable to wear and even has pockets. It covers you in all the right spots yet is flattering and fun. The baroque fabric is very beautiful. A winner in all ways!

This dress makes a statement
Pictures don't do it justice. It was so beautiful and detailed in person. Very comfortable and the material was an amazing quality. The only issue was the zipper... even off the body, it was almost impossible to zip up over the skirt, so you will definitely need assistance!

This stunner had the comments coming all night for a July 4th wedding.
Loved this dress. Just wish I would have ordered a smaller size. It runs big. It fit for the most part, but I'm smaller on top and the upper half was a bit loose. I ordered the 8 and the 6 and wore the 6 but I would have fit into a 4. I paired with a gold purse and shoes. Not much jewelry needed since the dress is so detailed. You can't go wrong!

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!!

This dress is stunning - too much for an outdoor summer wedding.
This dress is like doll wear, it is so precious yet "forward" with the detail. Loved it just not practical for the sweltering shore summer heat in NJ. Would rent again for a more appropriate situation.

It is show shopping!
EVERYONE loved it! Wore it to my rehearsal dinner. However, when I initially tried it on I didn't like it because there is ALOT going on in this dress but my friends encouraged me and I am so happy it did. Photographed extremely well! (I originally had heels on but changed later in the evening). I would size down because there is so much skirt and the top was not as snug as I would have liked.

In a sea of monochromatic dresses, this one sparkled!
I rented this dress for a red carpet, black tie event in Los Angeles - was looking for something that would make a statement and stand out but not be too garish. And this one fi the bill perfectly! It was comfortable, cute and easy to wear. Not too poufy. Flattering. A little big in the chest and the arms but otherwise, true to size. Pockets were great and because of the full skirt, I was able to hold my phone, small wallet and event my event tickets without impacting the silhouette. Received lots of compliments. Based on other reviews, had been worried about the flowers on the chest but they were fine (and fun).

I wore this for my wedding rehearsal and loved it! The details are exquisite and the blush color is beautiful. It runs a bit large, so if you are looking for a smaller fit in the waist, go for a size smaller.

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.

I felt like a real work of art in this special dress!
I wore this dress for a formal NYE party. I loved this dress because it was feminine and different than many classic formal dresses. The flowers sewn on the bust were so pretty, I felt like a true princess! I ordered a size 0 and 2 and ended up going with the 0.

Beautiful detail work.
This definitely runs large, in my opinion. I had room to spare around the waist and room to spare in the bust. I can't imagine it working so well on a taller person due to the proportions. The detailing is wonderful and over the top, but since the colors are muted it works quite well. It arrived in good shape and I sent it back today with two other pieces. I will say I found the top portion to itch ever so slightly.

Romeo and Juliet and fit for a princess
Great dress. No give in the bodice, so it was a little tough to zip. Beautiful overall and received lots of compliments. A bit like a ballerina on top of a music box, but appropriate for the event.

It wasn't right for me
This is an absolutely gorgeous dress...but not for me. It felt too "junior" with all of the embellishments and bold patterns. It would be great on a very young woman at a Springtime event, but for me it just didn't feel right.

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.

STYLIST REVIEW
This was the absolute perfect birthday dress! It is so unique and the details are so ornate. It fit very true to size and the colors are really warm and rich. The fabric was lush and it is warmer than you might think. Felt like a princess and highly recommend - it's a really wonderful dress!
