This was the perfect dress for my rehearsal dinner!
The dress was such a great alternative to buying (another) white dress! Fit was a bit tight, and the color of the top looked different from my skin tone in many of the pictures.

Tight in the hips
Beautiful dress with intricate lace detail. Perfect for a wedding, formal event, or a fancy wine bar. My big pear hips and butt would not fit. The top fit very nice and the sheer fabric on top adds a nice touch. I wish I could have worn this, but I'm too wide.

Classy Dress
Wore the dress for my wedding rehearsal. The fit is big in the arms and true to size in the bust and waist. The lace is beautiful and the detail is so pretty. However, because it was loose in the arms, it didn't have the same illusion of off the shoulder.

Looks nice on others but the material was very thin and the dress ran large on top.

This was perfect for my daughters Christening.
The dress looked big on the hanger. But it does not have a lot of stretch to it. I'm nursing so my breast are really big. But the dress still fit great in all the right places especially after just having a baby.

Testing for bridal shower
This dress was a test try on to see if I would like it for my bridal shower. Very cute dress and also very comfortable. Fit in all the right places and fabric had a bit of stretch to move around in. I am definitely considering this one for the shower!

Loved this dress!!!
I wore this dress for my bridal shower and it was gorgeous! It fit perfectly and I felt elegant, beautiful and comfortable in it. I loved the lace and nude mesh on the dress. I received so many compliments at the shower and people continue to ask me where I got it.

I wore this dress for my Bridal Shower!
I orginally ordered the dress in a 10, and got 12 as a backup size. Good thing too! I have fuller hips and typically wear a 10, but the 10 was quite small -- and i ended up wearing the 12. Got so many compliments, and I loved it!!

Perfect rehearsal dinner dress
This dress is stunning in person! I added a simple belt to the top for a bit of sparkle. I got many complements even some thinking it was a wedding dress. Perfect! I'm pretty curvy and I between size 12-14. Both looked good, decided to wear the 12 for a tighter look.

Fit was true to size. I'm 5'9" size 4, jean size 26/27, 32DD. The hem hit just above my knee. Felt so classy and pretty. Got lots of compliments.

Stunning dress
Rented for my bridal shower, and this was a little more formal than I needed/wanted. It's tight so not forgiving or super comfortable. That being said, it's a beautiful dress, and I would have been happy to wear it if my other options didn't work.

Flattering & elegant
I wore this dress to my bridal shower and absolutely LOVED it. Every single person complimented me and it gave me the perfect little boost of confidence before the wedding. Reading reviews, I got a 10 as my back-up size but was able to wear the 8 comfortably. I'm slightly pear-shaped, so it was a little baggy up too, but not so bad that anyone else noticed. Highly recommend!

Perfect bridal shower dress!
I wore this for my shower and I've never felt so bridal!! I actually rented another dress but it ended up being unavailable so this was my second choice, but I'm so happy it was. I was getting compliments all day and some people didn't even realize there was a mesh in top. It was a little snug but with spanx it was perfect. I felt like a million bucks!

I rented this for my bridal shower and received tons of compliments!
I rented this to wear to my bridal shower and was not disappointed. I rented both the size 10 and 12 since reviews recommended sizing up. The 10 fit so perfectly I never even tried the 12. This dress was extremely flattering and so comfy I didn't want to take it off. It was perfect for the occasion!

Perfect Courthouse ceremony dress!
This dress was the perfect style as I was searching for something a little more formal but still cute and fun for my courthouse ceremony and reception. Pro: Fits true to size. I have a big bust but I was able to wear a bra with clear straps and it wasn't noticeable. The mesh part will not lay flat on your chest if you have a big bust like me. Still cute though. Got tons of compliments and felt super comfortable the entire day! Con: The size 12 rental I received was torn at the seam at the zipper in the back. Once zipped, the hole pulled and was bigger than a quarter. It was definitely noticeable. I tied a sash with appliqué over it and it solved the problem (and was a great accent for the dress actually).

I ordered a different dress for my body shape. This was sent as a back up.
This was for my bridal shower, it was the back up to my first choice. The dress is reviewed as running very small so I ordered a 2 and 4. It was so ill fitting! The top was huge on my shoulders and midsection. It looked so awkward and made me sad I didn't have something else to wear! I had to buy a very padded strapless bra just to fill out the chest area, which made me feel so awkward. It just left something to be desired. I know I won't be renting again for one of My own events coming up!! I have to rent for a bridesmaid dress but its not my special day so I don't mind if it doesn't fit just right. I do Not recommend for pear shaped women.

Did not end up wearing
I really liked the fit on this. It is a little tight in the waist, but I had recently lost weight. The nude on top is a little weird. I am very pale so it didn't look right.

This dress was perfect for my rehearsal dinner, it's very classy! It is ivory so do not rent if you are looking for a bright white dress. No much stretch in the waste and fitting through the knee.

Court House Wedding
I am curvy. I'm a 34DDD and usually wear a size 8. This dress was beautiful. I wish it fit better. I got an 8 and a 10. I had to wear the 10. It was really tight around the middle, loose right under the bust, tight around the bust and loose on the shoulders. I kept having to adjust.

Beautiful dress! Great experience and very easy!
I wore this dress for my Wedding Shower. I received compliments about the dress throughout the day. I wore a size 8 and the only issue I experienced was difficulty pulling up the zipper. The delivery and the shipping return was very convenient and user friendly. I would definitely recommend this dress and will be using Rent the Runway more in the future.

Feminine, sophisticated and most importantly BRIDAL!
I wore this for my bridal shower and it was beautiful! The details are lovely and delicate, feminine and very modest. I felt like a bride! The white is more of an ivory shade. My normal size is a 2 and I thought it ran true to size. There is no give in the middle, especially with the band so spanx are always a good idea :) The size 4 fit well for the most part but the mesh overlay looked loose and the back of the dress looked too baggy. Gorgeous dress I would recommend to any bride or bride to be!

An afternoon wedding. This dress was perfection. Comfortable, age appropriate & just lovely.
This dress ran incredibly small. I'm typically between a 12 and 14. I had to return the 14 -- it was extremely small on me. Thankfully whoever had rented the 16 returned it on time because it was the only one in that size. The zipper is just awful on the ribbon portion. Very difficult to zip, you will need help.

Beautiful, classic, feminine!
I wore this for my engagement pictures & i love the way it ended up photographing. I was worried the mesh top would be too obvious. I ended up really loving the mesh top bc it kept all the lace in the place & the off the shoulder look was not annoying at all. The waist has no give so warning to those with a more round mid section

Winter wedding
Overall I really loved the dress. I'm on the taller side and the dress came to the perfect spot above the knee. The cream color lace was perfect for my court wedding. The dress was pretty tight in the rib area, with NO stretch, so it got a little uncomfortable after a while. The only other flaw was the color of the mesh top, it was darker than my skin, maybe bc of my winter paleness. Either way, everyone complimented it and I was pleased with how it looked on me!

Didn't Wear, but would look nice on a tall, slender person
I rented this dress for my bridal shower, but they didn't have my original size and I ended up ordering a backup dress as well (Lilly Pulitzer Bianca Flores, which is what I ended up wearing). The dress I received was a size 8 and was a little snug. It was also really long and hit just above mid calf for me. I'm 5'2" so something that long made me me look short in an unflattering way. I wouldn't recommend this dress for shorter girls unless you want a longer look.

This dress was incredible! I wore this for my wedding rehearsal and dinner and it was perfection. The lace definitely played up the bridal feel, but the fit and quality of this dress were impeccable. I wanted so much to buy this dress and absolutely recommend it to everyone!

It was the PERFECT dress for my wedding rehearsal
I am 5'8 143 lbs and wore 2.5 inch heels. This dress was beautiful and fit perfectly; I have a smaller waist and bigger butt, thighs, and hip. It is not a "stretchy" material so it was snug on my waist but was still very comfortable. The material is beautiful and photographs very well. I had a great experience with RTR and will be using them again in the future.

Great rehearsal dinner dress, but a bit snug
Gorgeous dress, beautiful quality. Love the illusion detail on top. Fabric has no give. I'm small on top and bigger hip and behind. This dress fit well on top but was tight in the waist (which is rare for me) and almost too small on bottom. I am usually between a 2 and a 4 (4 on bottom).

The perfect dress for any wedding event!
I got this dress for by bridal shower brunch. Luckily I was able to try on a dress by the same designer at their new location in Topanga, CA. This designer runs a little small, so while I normally wear an 8, we went with a size 10. Normally I do not order clothing online, let alone a dress for a special event, so you can imagine my anxiety! It fit perfectly!!! Its going to be hard to find a dress for the rehearsal dinner to top this!
