Gorgeous detail!

This dress is fun, different and beautifully made. No bra is necessary as the bust has a nice construction to it. While I rented it for a party I wished I had a reason to wear it during the day as the colors are so stunning, and I can imagine it would photograph well. Few notes: It's a well made dress with some layers so perhaps not the best dress for dancing all the night away; I had some room left in the chest area but it wasn't noticeable; a strapless bra would work well for a smaller bust. Finally, this dress is of excellent quality and it shows.

This dress makes for a WOW moment

Very glam and curve hugging! Love this dress. Did not quite fit my boobs (husband kept commenting on how they poked out at the sides) but i felt very secure in it and wasnt worried about stray nipples so all ok

Gorgeous dress, wish it has fit

I had sized up since I read it ran small. I was glad I did for getting it zipped but the bust was just a little too big and it looked strange. Detailing is incredible.

Great Dress

This dress was beautiful. You could tell it was very well made & expensive. I generally wear a 6/8, but ended up getting the 8 and would say it was true to size. There is no pull on the fabric, but the straps are adjustable. I would have loved to keep it, but don't have many more places to wear it to!

Not much room in the cups!

This is an unusual dress. The bodice and hips are totally true-to-size (perfect fit). However, the dress has these tiny little A-cups sewn into the bodice that wouldn't actually fit many people's chests (definitely not mine). It wasn't uncomfortable, but it just didn't look like it fit very well. On a separate note, I think this dress would look better on women with long torsos. There's just a lot going on for someone who is shorter up top.

Extremely well made

I love the vibrant colors and the thick material of this dress! The stiching was beautiful! The only downfall of this dress for me was the straps. I am short (5ft 3) and although the straps were adjustable they wouldnt stay put on the tightest setting. They kept loosening and then falling off my shoulders which was annoying. I think this dress would be perfect for someone taller or with a longer torso.

The details!

The dress made me feel fabulous for a NYE party! I couldn't fill the top, so I wore a strapless bra. The straps lose their tension, so I kept having to ask someone to adjust them. It was worth the look, though!

GREAT COLORS!! Defiantly a stand out dress without being in bright red. Loved it!

Great fit. The side slit is high (get ready to show a little leg) but it's fun.

Amazing colors

Beautiful dress that I rented for NYE dinner. I loved the dress on the hanger. The ruffles made me feel heavier so I ended up with another dress. Still, wish it would've been the perfect fit because this dress is so gorgeous.

Beautiful dress but very tight. I ordered it to wear to a party and ended up not wearing.

I ordered a 6 and an 8 to wear to a party. I am a 34DD and I could not fit into either of those sizes in the bust area. Sadly had to return, unworn.

Great statement dress! The colors are awesome, and it's comfortable.

Comfortable dress. Easy to wear. Flattering. It was great for the masquerade party I went to! It is True to size, maybe a tad tight in the hips, but not enough to go up a size. Loved it!

Beautiful, unique dress

Absolutely loved this dress, but it runs very slightly large despite other ratings. I'd suggesting ordering true to size and would size down for back-up when renting this dress. I'm 5'4" at 126 lbs with an athletic build. I rented a size 4 and 2; however, Rent the Runway notified me a few days prior to my rental that the Size 2 was not available to ship as it was received damaged by the previous renter. So, I wore the Size 4 to my event, but it was a little large overall, especially in the bust area. Nonetheless, very happy with this rental.

Fit is perfect! Stretchy! Slit is high!

The dress was super comfortable to wear. The slit is pretty high so just be aware when walking and posing. But overall hugs your booty just enough and was a great date night dress! Would rent again!

Embroidered floral print was stunning

I am usually either an 8 or a 10 and after reading reviews that this ran small I ordered a 10 and 12 to be safe. I'm 5 foot and curvy in my hips, butt and thighs. The 10 fit a little snug around my butt, but it fit me much better up top and I was able to feel comfortable and still dance in the size 10 of this dress. I did wear spanxs just to smooth out my shape. The adjustable straps were helpful for my shorter torso but my only complaint was that the straps did loosen very easily throughout the night and I had to keep having friends tighten them. For being short the length was great because there is a slit that gives it a sexy feel. The color, detail, and design were breathtaking. Lots of compliments. Overall great first RTR experience.

Truly unique and rich floral!

Absolutely loved this dress. I was hesitant as I am small up top and hippy on bottom, but the fit was perfect for a pear shape. I was also nervous about the ruffles but they fall nicely and the thickness of the fabric gives the dress more formality. Wore it to a black tie optional wedding and got lots of compliments as a pop of color in a sea of black - def recommend!

Beautiful, high-quality dress! Fit perfectly, got many compliments

What a beautiful dress! Always worried about dresses with boning and zippers because I'm a 34D but this fit perfectly. It might even be too roomy if you have a small chest. It was very flattering. My only issue was the straps dont stay adjusted and kept getting longer so didnt do much holding... the dress was structured enough that this didnt matter too much though

A little snug

The built in bra didnt do much for my chest so I still had to wear a strapless push up with it

Fun sexy dress with lots of cleavage!!!

I wore this on a date. Might be a little dressy for a date due to the thicker material of the dress. But loved the shape, color, fit, and the cleavage it gave me. Does not give much give due to the material.

Gorgeous dress, but not for the curvy.

The details for this dress was stunning, but it's not really meant for curvier people. It hugs really tight to the body so it looks great when I'm standing, but was hard to sit. My chest was spilling out and the straps would always fall. My dress came with a hole on the side of it so I couldn't wear out, but I took some photos with it on and it came out beautiful.

Beautiful color on but straps fell ALL night.

The dress was pretty but the straps would not stay up even when pulled tight. My husband and friends had to adjust the straps all night and it was a hassle. The dress was beautiful, gots lots of compliments but would not rent again because of the straps.

Showstopper!!

Um so yeah if you want to stand out from the crowd, this dress is for you. I got compliments from stangers on the way to the wedding! That has never happened. It does run small as I always wear a 6 and its true that there isn't much room in the bust, but it wasnt too tight. Overall it was very comfortable and it streches to fit with your body. The fabric is gorgeous and its just looks and feels expensive. Rent it!! (But order a size up).

Not Boob-Friendly

Dress is very pretty in real life - I loved it. However my ladies would not fit and there is a boning pattern on the dress so you could tell it did not fit me properly. I recommended this dress to friends though - it's that cute.

Dancing in this fun dress

Gorgeous dress, beautiful shaped, fit, color, and detailed embroidery. The reason for 4 stars in because the adjustable straps didn't stay in their spot so the straps were a little too long!

Best rental ever

I've never gotten more compliments on anything I've EVER worn. Even the bride was gushing over this dress. There were a couple pieces of the boning sticking out and poking me but I'll let RTR know so they can hopefully fix it!

Vavavoom!

Sexy dress. I'm a size 12 but ordered a 14 and was glad I did. The dress fit like a glove bute the straps kept falling down. They are adjustable but didn't stay tightened. It wasn't a deal breaker by any means and I'm glad I chose it.
