Unique and elegant

This dress was perfect for a formal summer wedding! Pros: BEAUTIFUL colors, flattering fit, one of a kind! Cons: the layers of lining got a twisted as the night went on, but on the plus side the most outer lining layer stayed put so nothing showed. Fit: I am smaller on top and curvier on bottom, so the 10 fit great on bottom and I easily safety pinned the halter closure to take it in a bit. I am 5'4" and wore short (1.5'' inch) heels and the length was perfect. This was my first RTR experience and I absolutely loved it! This dress was wonderful! Would definitely recommend.

Military ball in Hawaii

Perfect length, wore 5 inch heels and it didn't drag at all. Lace is divine. Color is gorgeous. The zipper is definitely tight in the ribs but the rest of the gown flows.

Felt comfortable and confident all night long!

This dress was amazing! It was high quality, stunning, and very different from what I'd usually wear. I was in between sizes though. The 6 fit well but it was loose on the top (can't adjust the halter). The 4 was perfect on top but the waistband was pretty tight.

Perfect for a formal spring wedding

This is my fav RTR dress ever! I was nervous that it would be too long or too low in the front but I wore 4 inch heels (could probably have worn 3 inch heels just fine) and the front dip was no problem at all. I wore a regular strapless bra and everything stayed tucked in well. The ribbon at the waist is not forgiving and may bother some. Also, a stiletto heel can occasionally catch the lacework, so perhaps a delicate sandal with bit wider heel would make for the best shoe. I loved this dress so much and was sad to return it!

Floral Lace for May Wedding

Everyone loved the floral lace - very appropriate for cool May wedding. Only con was the length, but that's my fault I'm short & there's really no hemming tape or safety pins that can hold this up- heavy material. Overall favorite rental

STANDOUT

This dress is amazing and I absolutely adored it. You will for sure stand out in a sea of black dresses. The length was perfect, and it was very flattering. The only con is that the ribbon was a little tight, so where I usually wear a 0, the 2 was wayyyy more comfortable. Order up for your backup!

Unique and eye-catching dress

This dress is great, comfortable, flattering, eye-catching. A couple of words of caution. It is a bit long. If you are on the short side, plan to wear the highest heels you have. Also, the built-in sash in the waist is not forgiving. Having said that, I loved wearing it and loved how I felt wearing it.

Compliment after compliment!

I loved this dress. Wish I could keep it. It was so flattering and unique. I reviewed so many compliments all night. The top buttons around the neck were a little loose but that was from wear and tear from multiple rentals I am sure. I should have got a 4R because I had some gap in my back but not much. I just loved the dress! Oh, hard to wear a heel though because the lace, so I wore a suede wedge which was okay for spring. Rent this...you will not regret it!

An absolute Springtime STUNNER

I received so many compliments on this dress! It is such a flattering cut. I was told by numerous strangers that I looked like a mermaid. The colors are so unique and the lace is done beautifully. I'm between a size 6 & 8, but the 8 fit much better. I'd go a size up if you're in between.

Beautiful views in early September right outside of Denver, CO. Dress was perfect.

The dress fit perfectly. I recommend maybe a wedge because my heels kept getting caught in the lace at the bottom.

I didn't end up wearing this for the occasion (Summer wedding) because it's quite heavy, but I loved the intricate detail and fit! Would probably rent forreals for a spring wedding.

0R ran a few inches long for me - I am 5'5''. I had to tape up the bottom and wore 3.5" heels. Otherwise, the fit was great.

Blooming black tie

This dress was perfect for my cousins summer black tie wedding. It was shapely without being super low cut and the halter wasn't too tight. The dress was pretty heavy but the lace made it pretty comfortable. I felt like a celeb!

Beautiful, very long!!

I couldn't wear this dress as it was too long for me (5'1" with 4.5" heels) and the chest was loose on me too. It was a beautiful dress, great colors and detail. Some light fraying of fabric, not noticeable.

Gah! Gorgeous!

I loved this dress so so much! It's so flattering and elegant. I was surprised that I didn't even have to wear a bra with the halter (36D)...and I usually always have to wear a bra. I'm 5'9" and got the regular length because of other reviews and the slight train on the back of the dress...for photos perhaps I could have wore the long, but in the regular I could dance without getting the dress stepped on. Don't hesitate...rent this dress!!

Favorite RTR dress so far!

Loved this dress! It was perfect for a formal summer wedding. Definitely more form fitting than what I would usually choose but it hugged my body in just the right spots. I ended up putting lightly lined cups in the top of the dress to give my chest a little lift but otherwise it worked well for my body type. I have a wide rib cage and am between sizes right now. The 8 fit me well and wasn't too tight, however, it was on the shorter side length wise. Only downside was that my fiancé got caught on my dress a few times on the dance floor so be aware that the lacy material gets caught easily on buttons and shoes.

Pretty detailing and colors, but tight waist!

I wore the 10L, and am 5'8 and 170lbs. Overall the dress fit well except the pink ribbon around the waist was so much smaller than the rest of the dress. It was really tight. If that pink ribbon hadn't been there, it would have fit perfectly and comfortably. Instead, it was somewhat uncomfortable. But still looked nice. I'd recommend sizing up b/c of the pink ribbon.

Wanted to love but it fell a little flat for me!

Loved the dress, just not on my body! Hugged my hips but the "belt" of fabric didn't hit me in the right place and made me look boxy

PERFECT for spring/summer formal events

Heavy enough to hide imperfections yet light enough that you stay cool, even in warm weather. Received compliments all night! Saw so many Rent the Runway dresses at the event, but this one was definitely the most unique and eye-catching! The long is VERY long. I am 5'9" and had to wear 3" platform wedges for it to look right. The belt around the waist is also a bit snug and has absolutely no give. But, the dress is amazing. One of my favorite rentals yet!

Such a unique style!

I did not end up wearing this dress because my husband and girlfriend advised my other option was better suited for the wedding we were attending. It was an indoor wedding at the Ritz Hotel in a ballroom. This dress would have been more appropriate for a garden wedding. The fit was great though and I hope to have a garden wedding to attend in the future so I can rent again.

Formal summer wedding outside

I'm 5'7" 170lbs D cup with a butt and a slimmer waist. Fit was perfect. I'm wearing 3" heels and length was perfect too. I like it with pearl jewelry and my green shoes from WHBM were a perfect color match for the green in the dress. Dress was comfy; I wanted a little more support in the top so I opted for sticky boobs.

Beautiful Detail- small fit

Was so excited to receive this dress in my unlimited membership. The colors and lace detail is gorgeous! However I ordered this in my size which is a 10 and I couldn't zip it up more than halfway. It was so tight I'm not sure going up a size would even be enough. I think this would fit best on someone who is tall and lean. If you are curvy it is very cinching in that waistband. Sadly having to send back unworn.

STUNNING! Compliments all night!

Hands down my favorite rental so far! The quality and details of this dress make it look like a million dollar dress. The colors are GORGEOUS!!! It's fun and classy with just the right amount of flirty. I'm 5'10 and the 6R was PERFECT length to just skim the floor without heels. It's a little on the heavier side but was still comfortable for a wedding in sunny 85° FL. Form fitting, but not at all restrictive. Back is low cut, but still high enough to wear a regular bra in a halter. Only TINY flaw was there was a tear in the embroidered top flower layer, but it was on the side where it blended in just fine. Will most definitely be renting this again, and keeping an eye out for it to go on sale!! ;)

This dress fits like a glove and the colors look great with a sun kissed skin tone. This dress is absolutely beautiful on and I felt like an A-loafer wearing it! I would wear this again and recommend it to everyone.

Beautiful dress but avoid wearing spiked heels

Fit was true to size but if you are smaller on top, you might need a little filler. Due to the heavy fabric, I didn't need a bra or any special undergarments. Only complaint was that the lace kept getting caught on my high heels and even snagged another woman's bracelet when she walked by.

Didn't wear it, giving it a 5 anyway.

Why, because had I ordered one size up this dress would've been perfection. The 2R wouldn't zip up all the way and the little it did it gave me a tiny bit of back fat (which I don't really have) going over the fabric. The material is gorgeous and the flower details are precious. Would've been hard to take it off me. I can't wait to have another event come up where I can order the right size 4R and truly wear it. Oh and you don't need a bra for this dress. Dress length with 4" or more heels, perfect to keep it off ground.
