The dress made me feel like a princess!
I rented this dress for my engagement pictures and it was absolutely gorgeous! The lace details on the sleeves and top are perfect and delicate! The full tulle skirt was gorgeous and made me feel like a princess. I needed a 6R but they were sold out on my date so I went with the 8R. It was a little large on me but I think that means it runs true to size. This dress is great for any special occasion!

Dream Wedding Dress
Dreamy. When my mother saw me she literally gasped. Compliments all night on this dress. As for the fit, I am 5'11" and have a rather narrow body. I can see how the empire waist on this dress could be rather unflattering for some. Otherwise the flowiness and color and fit was just a dream. I was comfortable all night - note the pictures of me breakin' it down. Lovely, lovely gown. So grateful I got to be a princess on my wedding - affordably! Thanks Rent the Runway :)

Beautiful dress, very used
Absolutely fell in love with this dress for my engagement photo shoot! I ordered two sizes of this dress and only received the smaller size since the other was previously returned damaged. The one I received was very worn and had pulls all in the lace and tulle, though you could really only tell if you were very close. There is more tulle in the front than there is in the back so in certain light, the back of this dress can be see through. I definitely recommend nude under wear! Rent the Runway was really great and sent two more dresses just in case the one I originally ordered didn't work out. Over all the dress was beautiful and took the best photos!

Loved the layers of tulle and the gold.... something different!
I rented this dress for an anniversary shoot... I'm a photographer and love encouraging my couples to dress up so RTR is great for that. I loved this dress and it looked beautiful on her- however the back is completely see through. I definitely recommend wearing a nude slip under this dress. Other then that, no complaints and it photographed beautifully.

I wore this dress for my engagement pictures and felt like a princess!
The dress ran a bit on the small and short side - I usually wear a size 4, and I got the backup size 6L just in case. Thank goodness I did as the 4R was too tight around the chest and much too short for me to wear with any heel. The 6L was also a bit short with my high heels, but it was perfect for when I was wearing flats. The sleeves were also quite tight and a bit short, so I definitely recommend sizing up (or at least opting in for a large backup size just in case). Beautiful dress, though!!

A lot of fabric to manage but worth it.
It is a lot of material to deal with but the overall effect is worth it. It runs a bit small without a lot of give in the underdress so size up.

I rented the gown for my daughter's homecoming. She was absolutely beautiful in the gown!
The dress was snug. It would have been better in the next size but instead of shipping a 10 and 12, I received two dresses in a size 10.

Gorgeous! Felt like a real princess!
I am a teacher and wore this for our classroom tea party. It is just divine! I had to wear 3 inch heels due to my 5'1 height, but it worked out just fine. Extremely classy, but I will say that virtually 100% of fathers without a wife present during car rider dismal (I directed traffic in the dress) rolled down their window and said gorgeous or beautiful.

It's lovely, but I'm blond and it would be much better suited to a brunette/dark skinned person.
Runs small, rather constricting around the neck. I normally rent 4-6, this was an 8 and was a little tight.

Photographs beautifully, captures the light incredibly well!
As others have reviewed, the arm holes on this dress are built for someone with a shorter torso, so you need to be very careful getting the dress on. Outside of the arms, the fit of the dress is true to size through the torso, but I noted that it "runs small" because of the arms. I also think if you had broad shoulders it would be really challenging to get this on. As there is a lot of lace and tulle on this dress, there are some nips and snags here and there, but you absolutely cannot tell when photographed. Definitely plan to wear flats if you are tall- I had the regular and needed to wear flats, I wish the tall had been available for my date!

I felt like Cinderella
This dress is definitely a show stopper. Be prepared to have all eyes on you! The dress itself is really gorgeous but wearing high heels is a MUST because it is very long. I am 5'3 and I rented a size 4R and I constantly had to watch my step in order not to step on it. There was a problem with the zipper which made it very difficult to close so you will need someone to help you zip it up. Also, the fabric is very sheer and see through so you will need to wear light underwear , preferably a thong. You will also need to wear a low back bra, go bra less, or buy one of those sticky bras. I rented this dress for a masquerade ball and it was absolutely PERFECT for my event. Everyone loved it!

It was a unique dress that everyone loved
It fits perfect. I am 5'6" / 140lb the only issue was that the second size up that I received would have fit a littler re comfortable around the shoulders but the dress arrived to me ripped (the top layer tulle)so I had no choice but to wear the smaller size. The skirt of the dress see through so I had to wear 2 slips to cover my underware. Other than that the dress was beautiful.

This gown was amazing! So dreamy and romantic! I originally had another gown picked out, but it was returned ruined so RTR let me pick any gown to replace it. When I saw this gown was available I had to snatch it up! I did some new portraits for my business and this gown was perfection for it. Seriously so much fun to wear and fit like a dream!

This dress is so beautiful! I was homecoming queen and got so many compliments on the dress!
I'm 5'8 and about 125-130lbs. I rented the 4R and it fit like a gem. I wore flats so it did drag on the ground but if I had worn heals then it would have been perfect. I think the 2R would have been too tight. This dress is the perfect fairy tale dress and was easily the most beautiful there. I would recommend 100%!

My dress came a day late even though my address was correct. I believe that RTR forgot to give UPS my apt #. Other than that, everything else was smooth. I'm 5"4 and almost 130 pounds and I had to wear the 6R. I felt like I was in a dream all night.

Affordable!
The gown was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I was told that I looked like a queen allllll night! Everything from the colors to the way the bottom of gown moved to the lace detailing was beautiful! Definitely a show stopper! This dress runs true to size considering the length and bust, I'm 5'8 and I had to wear flats. Also the back wouldn't zip up all the way b/c I'm a DD but leaving it unzipped a bit in the back worked out fine b/c it added a hint of sexiness to balance the conservativeness of long sleeves. Plus you couldn't even notice the zipper while it was unzipped. I recommend sizing up if your a DD and ordering the dress long for heights 5'5+.

Absolutely Stunning Dress
The dress was absolutely beautiful, and to no surprise the extra size was unavailable for my engagement photo date due to popularity I am sure. I would highly recommend that you reserve this dress ahead of time to ensure you book a size larger just in case, I was unable to get the zipper up, even though I had plenty of room and it wasn't tight. You may benefit from the larger size so you aren't playing around with the zipper for too long. Needless to say, when the zipper finally went up after an hour of finagling, it looked amazing, and I felt like a princess. It has a romantic look and stunning appearance against fall colors.

Too much dresses. Too small
I typically wear a 0 in dresses. I ordered a 0 and a 2L in this dress. The 2L fit but was way too snug in the arms. The zipper was a struggle as others have stated not due to fit but function, the dress is also very overwhelming. In my opinion, you should be the start not the dress. I'm actually glad this didn't work out as another woman at the Marine Ball had also rented this dress ( It was too tight on her arms also and she didn't wear it either) I would love to see Rent The Runway have an event listing to avoid renting the same dress as someone attending your event.

This dress is breathtaking. I wore it for my engagement photo shoot.
I couldn't have been happier with this dress and RTR's service. This dress is a showstopper. The lace detail is so feminine and the volume of the tulle is just the right amount. I'm 5'5 and the 2L was just a tad too long (the 2R was sold out--rent early!), but worked pretty well once I put on 4-inch heels. It fit like a dream and I didn't have much trouble with the zipper--but just a word to the wise: you'll need someone to help you zip up because it is delicate and difficult to do by yourself.

Engagement photos were incredible!
I rented this gown in 10L and 12L! Unfortunately, the 10L had a big tear in the tulle right at the waistline, so I couldn't wear it even though that size would have fit a bit better on top. The 12L had minor damage closer to the bottom of the dress, so significantly less noticeable and I was able to wear it for my engagement pictures on Sunday! IT WAS GORGEOUS! I got sooo many compliments from other couples doing engagement pictures that day, as well as from everyone who has seen the photos so far! It was comfortable and easy to wear. I am 6' tall and I wish it would have been a teeny tiny bit longer to cover my shoes completely, but overall it was so beautiful and worked out perfectly for the shoot. I have bigger arms so the sleeves were tight in my opinion, but other than that it was a great fit!

A beautifully detailed gown, but not for me
I rented this dress for a model to wear during a photoshoot. She was 5’8.5” and weigh about 135 pounds and the size 6 of this dress fit her well. Her measurements are 33-26-36. I ended up using the backup dress, as I felt that the waist of this dress hit her a little too high and I feel like it made her look heavier than it should have. The sleeves are really a unique aspect of this dress – but be mindful that they are tight.

If you're looking for stuff dreams are made of, look no further :D
I received this along with the similar mermaid gown by the same designer and the Catch the Wave gown because the Say I Do gown I initially ordered for my bridal photo shoot was no longer available. To be honest, I didn't really like all of the lace on this or the mermaid gown, it reminded me of curtains, but my photographer loved it so I gave it a twirl. Well, I'm glad I did! My photo shoot was in a museum and the little girls there for the Easter egg hunt kept stopping to stare at me and tell me I looked gorgeous (can totally see how this would make me look like a theme park princess lol) and it was admittedly super adorable of them. So this gave my punk-y hairstyle a really girly and fairy like glow and the pictures turned out better than I expected. I wore an 8R though because my size (6R) wasn't available and although it was too big, the zipper just would not cooperate which didn't really matter for the purposes of this photo shoot. Wouldn't pay to rent this for my own purposes but it was a gorgeous dress to stumble upon.

Beautiful and fun to wear
This dress is everything that a tulle dress should be--romantic, whimsical, and so fun to wear. I received several compliments throughout the evening. It was also surprisingly comfortable. It was a little constricting in the sleeves, but that was to be expected. As far as fit goes, it was true to size. I'm a pretty standard size 4, and this dress fit pretty much how I would expect a 4 to fit. It was pretty wrinkled upon arrival, but I steamed it before wearing it, and that made it look about a thousand times better. Also, I wore 4" heels, and they peeked out the bottom just a little. This worked fine for me, but just a heads up to anyone thinking of wearing tall heels with it. Overall, it was a great dress, and I really enjoyed wearing it.

The dress is beautiful. Perfect in every way for my 'Miss Gulf Breeze' photoshoot for my high school yearbook. Luckily, this dress runs true to size because RTR suddenly was unable to send my backup size. It is a tad short & that is why I give it 4 stars.

I could not wear this dress and was very disappointed. I am thin and normally wear a size 4 in dresses. This dress was cut for someone with narrow shoulders and very thin arms. I felt like it was just not cut for my body type.

Stunning!
This dress is amazing. I got so many compliments on this and definitely stood out among the sea of inappropriate dresses. I found it to fit TTS. The zipper was a bit sticky at the waistband but once you got it up over that part it zipped with ease. Some reviews said that the sleeves were constricting but I found them to be comfortable and able to move my arms freely. I feel it made me look a bit heavier in my mid section but I was okay with that because this dress is gorgeous.

Beautiful, ethereal gown.
I'm 5'5" and 121 pounds and found the L to fit perfectly. The arms fit fine and I did not find them too tight, as others have mentioned and I don't think of myself as having small arms. The 6 was a bit big around the waist, but the zipper on the 4 was impossible, even when it wasn't on, it was still a challenge to get the zipper up. The dress definitely adds some bulk, so not the best choice for anyone concerned about that. I rented for a Venetian masquerade ball and did a photo shoot prior, and it was perfection and I got a lot of compliments on the dress all night. Photo by Jay Hemphill @ jayhemphill.com

Beautiful!
Fit me perfectly! I was concerned about the bust (I wear a 36DDD) but it was comfortable and supportive enough that with only a sticky bra I was comfortable. I wore this to my senior prom, and was mistaken for a princess by a toddler in a restaurant. I got compliments all night- this truly was my dream gown!

Stylist Review!
There is no doubt that this is a stunning, princess gown! The tulle and delicate, gold lace make this gown ultra feminine and perfect for an incredibly special event. While it does run true to size, be sure to size up for backup due to the snug fit of the waist, bust and lace sleeve. Also be sure to wear with either a nubra or no bra as the back of the dress is sheer and any bra will show. Since this gown is such a showstopper, I would keep accessories simple and pair it with a pair of complimentary earrings to complete your look!

"Whimsical" is the word of the day :)
This dress was sent to me when the original dress I ordered for my engagement photos was returned damaged by the previous renter. I got the 0R and the 2R in this gown. Unfortunately, both were damaged when I received them. The one I am wearing in the photos is the 0R. I am usually a true 0 in dresses, so I would say it fits pretty true to size, maybe slightly on the small size due to the sleeves. The sleeves were not too tight, but the lace has no give, so you can't really make large arm movements in it :). Before I noticed the damage, I sent pictures to my best friend and fiance - both texted back and said it was very "whimsical". My fiance walked in the door a few minutes later and pointed out there was a reasonably sized tear in the sleeve around the wrist area. On the size 2R, the zipper was separated from the fabric right at the waist, the zipper would stick there and I did not want to force it past that point or get stuck in the dress so I did not attempt it, though the 0R fit perfectly, so I imagine it would have been a little big. The stylist, Mary Kate, was very helpful and sent out a couple of alternative options for me when I contacted them and let them know about the damage. I think this dress is really beautiful - it's not going to "slim" you by any means (the poof factor definitely didn't do anything for my figure, haha), but I think the purpose of the dress is a certain look and not to be particularly flattering. I think it would be beautiful for a ball or for engagement photos. I recommend sizing up for your back up size. The last suggestion I have is on length, I am 5'6.5" and the R was just long enough if I wore flats, I could not have worn ANY heel with it at all (which was fine for me, I was planning on wearing flats). If you want to wear heels and are around the R/L height cutoff, I recommend going with the L.

Such a princess dress!
I wish the 0 did not come damaged because the 2 was a bit large on me. Other then that it was an amazing dress!!
