Too many compliments to count

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was drop dead gorgeous. Everything about it was perfect. I am normally a size 4, but they only had a size 2 in stock and I tried it. The 2 was perfect, so I guess it runs a bit large. The sleeves are hot despite being sheer. I wouldn't recommend it for an outdoor summer wedding, but if you have an event with AC, go for it!

Absolutely Stunning Dress!

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was simply gorgeous. Wore this for my engagement party and felt incredible in it! Fits true to size, however the bust is quite fitted and was a bit too tight for me. Anything under a D-cup would most likely be just fine, though! I thought the fabric might be scratchy, but it wasn't at all! Loved all of the lace detailing; worked great with nude pumps and a statement necklace!

Don't usually go for princessy tulle, but man! This one is epically gorgeous.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
I usually wear a 4, but the sleeves were a tad bit loose (just enough to look bunchy), as was the waist. The 2 was snug in all the right places but still gave me enough freedom to move around. Wore this to an anniversary dinner date and I've never felt more elegant. Begs for a glass of champagne, this dress.

I was sent this as a backup dress. It is not my style at all but is really beautiful. I found the 14 to be tight in the rib cage, there is no stretch to the fabric. The sleeves and lace are beautiful.

STYLIST REVIEW

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress is to die for! The detailing is so impressive I couldn't stop looking at it before trying it on. The fit is true to size and I would size up for back up just because I found the shoulders/arms very snug with little give. This would be excellent for any formal event. You can get away with any shoe, as this dress hits between mid-thigh and the knee, depending on your height.

Tons of compliments

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is gorgeous. I got so many compliments throughout the entire night, and it wasn't even my wedding. Like others have said, this fabric has very little give so maybe size up if you're on the cusp of sizes. Also, if you have larger arms the fabric will rub against the underside of your arm and may cause chafing. I had to be cognizant of this an remember to not let my arms rub against the fabric too much. Lastly, this dress is HOT. The fabric traps heat. Wouldn't recommend for an outdoor occasion. Overall, the dress is beautiful and I had a great night in it.

Bridal shower dress

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large

I ordered the 2 and the 4 but since this runs large I wish I had ordered the 0 and the 2 (even though I wear a 4!) The 2 as you can see was a nice fit and if you rent this dress you'll be guaranteed to get lots of compliments! A very luxe dress that works well in any season.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size

I loved this dress and I had many compliments on it. The only problem was I had to wear the second size I chose because the didn't send the first choice size (8) so the dress was a little big but it worked out anyway. I was a little upset that I ordered this dress at least 4 months in advance yet they didn't end up having my size the day I needed it. Luckily the other dress fit well.

I was nervous because I ordered too late to get a size four, so they just sent the two. It fit perfectly! The length was great and I received compliments all night. It really went well with the theme of the wedding. Rent the Runway sent some goodies, too! I really felt like a princess, the customer service is great! I have already ordered again!

Beautiful dress but not for girls with big hips

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
If you are pear shaped like me, this is not the dress for you. I do say it runs true to size because if your top and bottom are the same size, then it is perfect. I have pretty big hips and the slip that is sewn in has no stretch. I first tried the 10 so I hopes the 12 would work; that was a little better in the hips but then too big for me in the top so I couldn't wear either. The material is high quality and the sheer sleeves are delicate and beautiful. You have to wear a strapless bra, which don't give me a lot of support so I looked a little frumpy in the dress anyways.

There isn't one thing I don't LOVE about this dress. I received both a 2 and 4 and found the size 2 to be the best fit. It is true to size. It was a tad bit big in the waist, but overall the fit was very flattering and comfortable. I received compliments all night! The sleeves are a bit itchy at first, but once my bridal shower started to get going I quickly forgot about the itchy sleeves. This is such an elegant dress and I would recommend it to anyone who is in need of a dress for a special event. Timeless and classic!! I'm sad to send it back!

Perfect dress for my wedding shower brunch!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was a great dress for a formal brunch we held for our joint wedding shower. It looks great in natural sunlight. It does fit a bit tightly in the chest, but I was able to comfortably breathe, eat, and move around. I'm (in my opinion) an average/medium build -- not considered skinny, but not considered overweight -- and I thought it was good for my body type. I got so many compliments on the dress, people kept asking where I got it. I was proud to tell them about Rent the Runway!

Stunning dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
Rented this for a celebratory date night. Absolutely gorgeous dress but a little restricting. I wore a 4 which is my normal size and I would say it is true to size but on the smaller side. The arms feel a little tight and it was definitely tight for me in the bust/rib cage (I am a DD). I would recommend for a shorter evening.

If anything the dress ran a bit tight, especially around my shoulders. It was difficult to raise my hands completely above my head but the bodice fit very well. I was comfortable. Skirt was a modest length for a girl with long legs, too. I would definitely rent this dress again!!!!!

the dress is so pretty! i usually go for a fuller skirt, and was surprised at how good i looked in this. the fabric around the sleeves was a little itchy, so caution if your skin is sensitive. wore to an indoor event in july and was VERY HOT. don't let the sheer fool you- it's long-sleeved! be prepared to be hot if you're dancing.

I needed a gold dress... and I fell in love with this one.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this for a wedding and it worked perfectly. I definitely wouldn't have wanted to wear it any longer than I did. I got tons of compliments, but it was pretty uncomfortable. The tulle has NO give so I couldn't lift my arms any higher than my shoulders. The stitching on the outerskirt sticks to the slip, so it required lots of adjusting. I would recommend this dress for a short event - it's lovely, just not the most comfortable.

Fabulous rehearsal dinner outfit!

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Wedding
I was nervous whether or not this would be a flattering look or not, but I wanted something elegant for my rehearsal dinner. It fit great, though I felt it had a bit of a bell shape in the waste which wasn't as flattering as I had hoped. Also - don't wear tights with this dress. The fabric of the overlay shredded my tights!

Lace is SO stiff!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
Rented this dress for a professional cocktail/dinner party and was surprised how very stiff the lace was on the dress. It stood out from my body with no drape at all. Edges of the lace got caught in the underlining. While the dress fit fine, I just couldn't wear it because it added at least 5 pounds to my appearance because of the lace.

I wore this dress for my sister in law's wedding in Austin,TX

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I was really torn between wearing the size 2, which fit me comfortably from the torso but the sleeves looked very loose, or the size 0 which the sleeves fit great but was pretty tight from the torso. I ended up wearing the size 0. It was not the most comfortable dress and after wearing it for about 10 hours having eaten ribs, brisket, and chicken I was so ready to get out of it but the detail of the dress was exquisite and so delicately beautiful that I would not have chosen any other.

Rented this dress for a fancy wedding I attended.

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I have a hard time finding dresses to fit due to my large bust size (38G), but this one worked out well! The first time I tried the dress on, I tried it on with a strapless bra and it was too tight and restricting up top. I took the bra off and it fit much better. In the end, the dress didn't fit 100% perfectly (hence the 4 stars instead of 5) due to my large bust size (not really the dress's fault) and the arms were a bit restricting/itchy, but that's to be expected with lace arms. Overall, it worked well for my event, was different than what everyone else was wearing and I received a lot of compliments!

Gorgeous dress with beautiful details.

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Other
Beautiful dress. The lace details was gorgeous. I wore this to my sons baptism and received lots of compliments. It was a little snug on my hips but that was excepted for me because I have large hips. I saw lots of comments about people complaining about itchy sleeves, I didn't feel it. The only complain I have it that the dress looked worn out. You couldn't tell because of the lace details but this dress in the size 4 worn out, it looks like it's been worn and washed at least 100 times!
