Gorgeous!
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.

Very unique and flattering dress!
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.

Loved the fit and comfort, great lace fabric. This a bit long though and if you have pointy heel at may get stuck at times. But over all loved the dress

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!!

This dress is incredible. 6L was prefect as I am tall, wore flats and have a small chest. Even prettier in person.

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.

Perfect dress for a black tie Spring wedding!
The dress runs true to size in my opinion but beware the ribbon around the waist is snug. I was between the 2R and the 4L and was glad that I had the 2R as a back up since the 4L was a bit loose above the waist. At 5'9", the 2R hit the floor without any heels in the front. With 2.5" heels, it was a bit above the ground in the front (which I was okay with especially while dancing!) and hit the floor nicely in the back. Didn't need the extra length like I thought I would.

Beautiful and unique dress! Long is super long!
This dress is beautiful, well-made and a bit heavy for that reason. The only issue is that the long is super long. I'm about 5'10 and with 5 inch heels it's still dragging. Anyone under 5'9 doesn't need the long which is unusual.

Great print lots of complements
Great dress. Very long. I wore very high heels. I usually like my dresses longer, but this dress would drag on the ground without high heels. Got lots of complements. Fit well in the body.

Fabulous and Unique
I wore this for an evening formal gala, as I was looking for something that would stand out from the sea of black. This didn't disappoint! I received lovely compliments all night. The 4R was my backup size, and did fit but for being just slightly tight across my hips. I stuck with the 6R, which was a little big around my bust - but still looked good and was amazingly comfortable. I was a bit concerned because there were only two small buttons at the back of the neck holding up the halter top, and the dress arrived with one of the buttons almost falling off - but it held. I took the good advice from past commentary to wear wedges - good call. Mine were 4" and the dress still dragged the floor a bit. Definitely recommend!

Fit is true to size. The lace detail is very elegant and the ribbon around the waist is slimming. The dress is pretty heavy material which was great for the slightly chilly weather. The regular was perfect length in heals.

Wore this to a fall semi formal wedding. It's kind of heavy and kept me warm but not too hot! I'm 5'8" and this just hit the floor with flats. Definitely true to size- I have fuller hips/ butt and it was body hugging (but didn't create rolls!). Order size up as backup.

Amazing dress for a formal event!
Went to a formal wedding in September. The detailing on the dress is so perfect and the colors complemented my olive skin color. I am 5'3 and rented a size 8R, I definitely needed to use at least 4" heels for this dress. The dress slightly scraped the floor with heels on. I couldn't change out of heels because the dress would be too long. I had a rough time dancing on the floor because my heels would get stuck through the detailing, so I had to lift up my dress to prevent that.

Unique
Pretty dress - colors are interesting and different, has some retro inspiration. Fits true to size but zipper is tricky with such heavily textured lace and the waist is tiny, so it's especially tough to get past. I'm 5'11 and the 4L was jussssst skimming the floor so I could have worn flats or a very short pretty heel. Fit was flattering to an hourglass shape, I possibly could have gone up to a 6 to have a little more room to move/sit/dance as it hugs the curves. That being said I went with another dress for this particular late summer wedding, the weight was nice for Fall but colors were very Springy!

This dress really looked and felt a bit more special than my average wedding attire.
Fit to size around my waist and had great coverage over my chest. Not too much cleavage. I had to pull up the straps around the neck and pin them to hold up my girls. The dress stayed in place the entire night, even through lots of dancing. I really loved this dress.

The perfect fit!
This dress was perfect in every way! I wore this dress for a Summer wedding, the colors were vibrant and the material concealed my tummy. I received tons of compliments from men and women! The dress fit me like a glove, the only con was I'm too short and kept stepping on the dress.. I would buy this dress!

This dress was a total winner. It looked gorgeous, was flattering and was memorable.
The dress fit true to size, but the long is quite long. I am 5'9" and the long was a bit too long for my 2 inch heels. It would have been perfect if I was in higher heels. The lace is gorgeous, but a quite heavy, so I was pretty hot (of course no one was coll for a 90 degree 90% humidity outdoor wedding with no A/C). Even in the heat, I looked great and got tons of compliments all night.
