The dress was great! Got lots of compliments, and was perfect for an early September wedding.
I'm fairly short, and have a weird build, so I was a little worried when other reviewers said it was a bit tight around the waist. I had no problems at all, and absolutely loved the dress! The 8 was just a touch too big, but a 6 would've been too small, so the fit was overall great! The 8 gave me some extra room for some more cake! It hit right above my knee, and was elegant enough but I could spend the night dancing in it. Would definitely recommend!

GREAT dress for a summer wedding!
I wore this dress to an outdoor summer wedding and it was perfect. I ordered the 12 and the 14 and the 12 fit perfectly but the lace looked a little worn, so i wore the 14. It was a little too big in the chest area and under my armpits which caused it to bunch a little bit, but it looked better than the faded 12. I really loved this dress and it was much more comfortable than I thought it was going to be!

Gorgeous dress!
I am 5ft2 and weigh a muscular 137lbs, with a 36D bust. I maybeeeee could have gotten into the 4, but I got the 8 as my backup size (didn't even open the bag) so we will never know. This was perfect for an outdoor wedding, and the colour of the dress is amazing. I was comfortable eating and sitting and standing, and in photos this dress shows up so well! Highly recommend!

Amazing! Loved the dress!
Ordered a size 2 and size 0 back-up. Ended up wearing the size 0 only because it fit my bust better, but easily could have worn the size 0! Great dress and really happy with how everything worked out as it was my first time using Rent the Runway!

LOVED THIS DRESS!!! So beautiful. This was a back-up dress that I was overjoyed to receive! The colors are gorgeous, it's a high quality dress, and best of all I could wear a normal bra!

The dress was a perfect fit and color for an outdoor August wedding.
The fit was true to size. It was a surprisingly great fit for a busty girl. I received many compliments on the dress. The pros were the fit, the quality of the material and the color. The only negative was the zipper was a little difficult.

I loved the colors on this dress! Wore this to an outdoor bridal shower in August. This was actually a backup dress as my original dress didn't have my size available, but I had no regrets. Fit perfect and received many compliments.

Beautiful, flattering dress
The detailing and colors of this dress are beautiful. It has a flattering fit and I found it quite comfortable, wearing it all night for a summer rooftop wedding. I am sensitive to how my stomach looks in dresses and I found that this dress did not accent it in a bad way at all. I am typically a size 6 in dresses but rented the 8 as a backup size after reading reviews. The 6 fit, but like others said, it was tight around the rib cage, so I wore the 8 instead, as it was more comfortable. I'd suggest renting your normal dress size and the size up for a backup. I received lots of compliments and overall was very satisfied with this dress.

Stunning
This dress is stunning! With a very large bust (36DDD) it can be so hard to find a dress that fits and looks nice. The color is really bright and pretty. You can wear a nude bra with it but I didn't need one. I think this dress would work well for someone with a small waist because the middle of the dress has no stretch. The length was great. I was not too hot in this dress for a summer wedding in NYC on a super humid day and I did just fine. I paired the dress with the kate spade rosy pink drop earrings and they were a perfect match! Highly recommend this dress!!

I wore this dress to my brothers wedding. It was very comfortable!
I wanted a 10 and a 12 the 12 wasn't available so I just went with the 10 it fit fine, a little tight around the rib cage so it bunched a little weird in the top. Probably only something I noticed. Otherwise it was very comfortable, good length, it was a heavier material than I thought it would be. I was able to just wear normal nude bra. I got a ton of compliments on the color. I would say it's more formal than it looks in some of the pictures. Loved it!

Pretty color and pattern
This dress looks great in person! Love the pattern and the colors- very bright and summery. The sheer top shows off the pattern so beautifully. I received many compliments. Hits above the knee. I often have to size up to an 8 because I have a larger ribcage, and that was the case in this dress. Even in an 8, the waist was not too forgiving. I'd recommend sizing up for your back up.

Beautiful dress!
I wore this to a tea party themed bridal shower. It was very comfortable and well made. I got a four and a six as my backup size because a lot of reviews said it ran small, I wore the four because it fit great. I think it runs very true to size.

Perfect fit
I absolutely loved this dress. The color and stitching details were great and I received tons of compliments all night long. The dress was a bit heavier than I expected when I received it but it didn't feel heavy at all once I had it on. With the dress being mostly lace, it traveled really well with no wrinkles. The top part looks like it is just lace laying on your skin but there is actually a little skin toned mesh layer that helped hide bra strap lines. Would definitely rent again!

Everything you want and need it to be!!!
This was my first RTR dress and I couldn't have picked a better dress! I wore this to a July wedding in the hill country of Texas and fit right in. This dress fits just how everyone says, like a dream. It's no wonder why it's in the most 'popular category'. I loved the unique color as well as the classy fit. Material was solid and the length was good. No weird rubbing or stubborn areas of fabric on skin. I would recommend to anyone looking for an easy, comfortable fit.

The intricate details make the dress stand out
This dress was a "just in case" style, sent because my original selection was apparently not available. At first I was bummed out, because the more casual dress I had initially picked was perfect for my occasion, and this one was actually a bit too dressy seeing it in person. After talking with the excellent customer service person who offered to arrange a last-minute switch, I decided to just roll with what I had and it turned out fine. The dress fit perfectly, hitting a little lower on my leg than on the model in the picture (which was great). It wasn't too heavy even with the lining, and I loved the subtle pop of pink. I would wear it again if the right occasion comes around.

Colorful Dress for Colorful Event
This dress was true to size. I usually wear a 2-4 and the 4 fit perfectly! The details were fun without being over the top. I am 5'5" and the length was perfect--not too short but not covering my knees either. With a pear shape I was worried the bottom might be too flowy and make my bottom half look even bigger but it clung close enough without being clinging to my hips! Lots of compliments, would recommend and rent again!

I wore this dress for a rehearsal dinner and it was perfect. It's SO comfortable, and much prettier in person. The lace and fabric are really high quality. Be prepared with a strapless bra.

Perfect for an outdoor wedding
There was a nude illusion lining so you can wear a strapless bra or a regular nude bra. It was cool for an outdoor wedding and didn't show sweat stains at all. It was forgiving around the hips. The wait is mesh though so prepare to show midriff.

A dream dress!
Beautiful and unique! Would definitely rent again. Received compliments all day long. I rented the 2 and 4, both fit but I opted for the 4 with a little more breathing room around the middle since it was for an outdoor wedding on a hot July day and the fabric is surprisingly thick. Only complaint was that I had to wear my most padded strapless bra since I'm small chested and the 4 was too roomy in the chest. Wish I could have kept it!

First RTR experience
The color of this dress is gorgeous. It was heavier than I expected with a thick lining- made very well! Like other reviewers stated, the waist is very tight with no stretch. The size 8 fit better in the waist but then the top was baggy so I went with the size 6. I needed a nude strapless bra because you could see the strap a little in the back and without a bra the top buckled a little so I needed the padding to fill it out so it would lay properly. I didn't realize that there is a sheer line around the stomach but that was a fun touch! This was a great first rent the runway experience.

First experience = flattering success!
My first RTR experience was fabulous! It is super helpful to see dress reviews and how each fits on different size girls--this one fit well everywhere (not too tight in any one place) and I was able to dance the night away without issue. The ordering and return process was efficient and simple and I received sooo many compliments throughout the night! Can't wait until the next event so I can try another! #newdress #wedding #somanycompliments

Cute cut, great colors
I loved wearing this dress - it was a great combination of fun and classy. It's a perfect length, hitting just a few inches above the knee (I'm 5'7"). I loved the embroidery and colors in particular. I would rent again! Note that it's snug in the midsection, but not so tight it was uncomfortable. I wore my usual size in this.

Loved this dress! There is a nude lining under the lace in the back, so I was able to wear a regular nude bra and the straps didn't show. It's a beautiful, unique dress, and very comfortable. Perfect for the summer outdoor wedding.

wanted to love it, but awkwardly placed flowers made it tough
This dress fit great, was light for a summer wedding and a nice length for someone 5'9". But there are two flowers that are unfortunately placed on the chest area which I didn't notice until I took a selfie, then it was all I could see.

Just stunning
This dress is a home run. Tried it on in store a few months ago while looking for a replacement for a different event and fell in love with it. Pictures don't do it's intricacies justice. It photographs beautifully and I received countless complements the entire evening. It was a significant splurge, but I could not have been more pleased with the outcome. Would not only rent it again, but would buy it if the price was right!

beautiful dress!
Great fit, beautiful dress with nice details and vibrant colors. Received many compliments on this dress. Comfortable in hot and humid weather. I have a wider ribcage and waist, which was where this dress was the tightest on me. Ran true to size (I generally get a size 4 with a size 6 as a backup). I loved this dress.
