Easy, classy, gorgeous
I loved this dress. It's a true light blue - some pictures made it look more frosty looking. The fit was great. I'm a 30G, 34 in waist, and a healthy full figure butt (I know that's right), so I'm always worried about online dresses, but this one was super easy. I wore with nude heels, minimal jewelry, and a purple/pink lip. Enjoy!

Luxurious dress with soft and intricate lace detailing that is perfectly elegant.
This kind of dress is exactly why I use Rent the Runway. Absolutely beautiful detailing and something that is unique enough that I would really only want to wear it once even though I loved it so much! The neckline is a bit lower than it seems in the picture so cleavage does show. There is little give in the dress so unless the band hits right at your waist point, it may not look right. The cap sleeves are a tad big but I personally liked the look. The length hit right at my knees which was perfect as we were attending a religious ceremony prior to a wedding. The dress and fit received many compliments. The dress fit my body type like a glove: 5'10", 150 lbs, hourglass figure.

Amazing detail
The detail on this dress was absolutely amazing! I got numerous compliments. It fit like a glove however the top is slightly large and made for someone busty.

Perfect dress for Mother of the Groom. Complements galore. Felt very sexy and magical.
Love this fit, wore 4 inch shoe. Need Hollywood Tape to keep shoulder from falling. Assistant needed for zipper.

Great dress!
Great colors! Received many compliments! This dress has a green layer underneath the lace detail. The sleeves were a little loose and a little itchy toward the end of the night.

I love this dress.
This dress is gorgeous. It is also comfortable. The color is much darker than in looks in some of the pictures. I wish I owned it . Absolutely gorgeous. We did use fashion tape to keep the shoulders down as the bodice part is a bit wide in the shoulders.

my moms wedding
At first I was very upset because the dress was supposed to arrive on Tuesday and it was sent back to Rent the Runway before I even wore it. I was totally panicking but Rent the Runway immediately corrected the error and sent me the dress on Thursday morning. By the way make sure someone is home to sign for your package. Thankfully the dress fit me perfectly! I'm 5'4 so I bought four inch heels from Badgley Mischka to help prop me up lol. Everything looked stunning and I received so many compliments. Thank you Rent the Runway for your amazing assistance while I was panicking on the phone with you! Ladies this dress is absolutely beautiful and pictures can't even begin to show how truly beautiful it is. I highly recommend it! It shows your curves beautifully!!!! Thank you Rent the Runway!!

Got a ton of compliments
I wore this dress to a summer outdoor cocktail wedding. This dress was true to size and easy to wear. The only issue I had was that the weather was very hot and humid and the dress became itchy while I was wearing it.

Prettier in pictures
This dress was not what I expected. Looks better in the photos online. The lace looked cheap and the dress was very heavy. The sleeves don't quite fit right. Returned this dress without wearing.

Lace elegance!
I got lots of compliments at the Austin wedding. The dress was beautiful. I wore the 14 and it fit very well. The shoulders were a little loose but tape held it in place. Great fit & comfortable!

50th Anniversary celebration!
I rented this dress for our anniversary, and it was perfect! It made me feel young and beautiful. I hesitated, because all the others reviews I saw were much younger people. But I'm so glad I went ahead and got it. I had tons of compliments!! As mentioned in other reviews, the dress is tight, and the zipper is super difficult to close. I couldn't zip it alone. Get some good tight undergarments!! Also, I needed double-sided tape to keep the shoulders up. But once those things were taken care of, I simply enjoyed the dress all evening...plus the next day at church and dinner!

This dress was a statement!
The beautiful blue and green colors and the exquisite lace make this dress a fashion standout! I am not big on top and after reading other reviews I was a bit worried about the shoulders falling off. This was easily remedied with some double sided dress tape. Everything else about this dress was perfect.

Perfect Wedding Guest Dress
I rented this dress for a fancy wedding at a vineyard and it was just perfect. I got a ton of compliments all night! The size 4 that I wore was a tiny bit big in the chest but fit my waist and hips well, where the size 2 fit up top but was tight across my hips. I was worried that the dress would look too close to white but in person the color was much more vibrant -- kind of a mix between pale green and gray, and very elegant. It's one of my favorite dresses I've ever worn!

Gorgeous dress!
I rented this for my son's wedding! This is my first RTR dress and I couldn't be happier! It's a beautiful dress and I received many compliments! It's also very comfortable which made dancing in it easy. It fit true to size. I ordered a six and an eight and the six was fine. Like most of the other reviews the zipper is bitch! It took two people! Reviews also mentioned that the shoulders tend to slip down. I did not have this issue which could be because I'm a little busty. I wore a regular bra and spanx! The shoes in the picture as not the ones I for the wedding. I wore blush ankle straps and it looked perfect! I would highly recommend this dress!

Classy, elegant and feminine.
I can't say enough good things about this dress. I've already rented it twice and most recently for the Royal Ascot in London where i received endless compliments including a photograph in the London Times style section (who knew Kate Middleton would also be wearing the same designer on the previous day!) This dress is extremely comfortable, flattering and exudes femininity. Ladies, you will look and feel your absolute best in this lovely dress. Also, I need to mention just how AMAZING Irena at customer service was re: tracking this item down for me for specific dates. Rent the Runway truly cam through for me.

Beautiful dress. Received MANY compliments.
I usually wear a size 6, so this dress is true to size. I did have to use a bit of double sided tape around the chest area to keep the lace in place.

Stunning material and design.
Received numerous compliments. Loved the fit EXECPT for the sleeves. I am very small chested, 34A, on a size 8 frame, the sleeves kept falling down off my shoulders. I believe it my chest was larger this would not have been a problem at all, so keep that in mind.

Stand Out in sea of black
What a beautifully detailed dress. I loved the colors, lace detail and tea length. It is a perfect dress for a summer/spring wedding. The fit was true to size and the only issue I had was the fit up top (arms/shoulders) being too loose -I had to pin the sleeves to my bra for them to stay up. Also, I am almost 5 months pregnant and found this dress to be accommodating to my growing belly. I definitely recommend renting this dress!

Stylist Review
It's all in the details with this beautiful lace dress. Running a tad small, if you are on the curvier side we recommend sizing up. There is no stretch to this dress. It is very fitted at the natural waist and bust. Works best for A to C cup. This style was tea length on my 4'11 frame. We recommend wearing a strapless bra or spanx with this style. This style is perfect for a Bridal Shower, Tea Party, Kentucky Derby Party or a Daytime Wedding.

Great color and fit!
Loved the color, many compliments on it! Worked well on my shorter frame. The rouching is nice to hide any lumps and bumps. The off the shoulder detail is very pretty. I did have to adjust them from moving up every now and then but not really bothersome. Fits true to size. Borrowing my friends profile so my About Me is off: 5'2", 34C, petite, 135lbs.

My Favorite Dress Ever.
The fit is pretty flawless. The shoulders were a bit large on me but I feel like a taller woman would be perfect. The dress is fitted but with little stretch. I would size up if your waist or hips are fuller. I got compliments all night.

Gorgeous springtime dress!
I rented this for a spring wedding. The colors are absolutely beautiful and I just loved the lace . So different from a typical LBD. It does seem to run large, I usually wear a 6 in designer clothes but the 6 was slightly loose all over so I went with the 4. Definitely more room in the top than bottom, I ended up wearing a padded bra. No stretch anywhere and you will need an extra set of hands to get the zipper past the waistline! I had bought fashion tape based on prior reviews about the sleeves falling down but I didn't need to use it. Many, many compliments!

Mixed emotions
It's a beautiful lace dress. The amazing quality and intricate details make this dress stand out. I received many compliments. However, the top is very large. I'm not small up top, in fact I usually size up to accommodate the "girls" and my arm width. I sized down for this dress. The sleeves are very wide and were awkward to position correctly. The bust was also too wide, showing too much side and top. I wanted to love this dress, but i just didn't. I was out of town and could not change dresses, but I wish I had gone with something else.

Great dress with perfect spring colors!
I loved this dress. I wore it to a Kentucky Derby Party. I was able to wear a normal bra with the dress and it was super comfortable. I will say that in the belly area, the photographs taken were not totally the most flattering. Even still, I wish I owned this dress and I felt super nice in it!

Elegance is the only word describes this dress!
Pros: rented 14 & back up 12, losing weight so I'm in between. Still wore 14 and it fit perfectly. It was a beautiful pattern with the light purple, green and cream leaves. The lining was soft to the body, loved the length as it gives me a nicer shape. Wore regular bra, still working on my tummy so wore a lite maiden form tummy smoother, felt still great with the dress. Since it was a Sunday wedding, kept accessory to a minimum- no earrings, wore a 3 flower gold necklace and camel colored peep toe high heels. Cons: the sleeves kept falling off. Used Bobby pins between my bra strap and he dress and it worked. Other than that, it was perfect! I even ran into a guest that recognized it was RTR dress and she was wearing one :)

This dress is so beautiful and the details are incredible.
I have a very hourglass figure and this dress was very form fitting on the bottom and loose on the top. I ended up wearing the smaller size because the shoulders were just too big on the 14 but I preferred the way the bottom fit. I got compliments on it all night.

Stunning! Even better in person
Need a conservative dress for son's confirmation and this was perfect! Compliments galore! The fabric is gorgeous, no stretch though and the waist has no give either. It is not itchy at all; did need to tape down the chest and shoulders otherwise it would slip off. Wore strapless bra but could've used nude bra with clear straps. Would recommend very high heels since the length hits at the middle shin you don't want to look frumpy in flats. Loved!

You could wear this for your own wedding.
I found that even in the two, the shoulder sleeves were a little loose. Everything about this dress is absolutely stunning. I chose not to wear it because it was far too elegant for the occasion.

Unique and feminine
I usually wear a 6 and the 4 was pretty good, although the sleeves could've used some fashion tape to help them stay up. I wore a nude bra with no issues. As always with RTR dresses, I received tons of compliments in this one. Has a classy, timeless feel to it while still looking sweet and pretty.

Tons of compliments, almost perfect fit (sleeves fell down a couple times) and great quality. My dad wanted to buy it at first sight! Can't imagine anyone being disappointed in this dress
