officiant style
I needed a dress that would be easy to wear in Chicago summer hear and extreme humidity. I felt like the sleeves were awkward fitting and the tones of the dress were better suited to those with lighter skin. Although it was a pretty dress, I was not at all satisfied with the fit. I can see it being gorgeous on those who aren't very curvy; not the ideal for folks with shapely hips, butt, and thighs.

Beautiful and perfect
The embroidery and the quality of the dress are worthy of the compliments I got that night. It was perfect for a conservative Catholic wedding almost upstaging the bride. It was slightly tight around my hips but I was 5mos post baby. Otherwise, it's true to size.

Wore this for my rehearsal dinner and got tons of compliments!
Fit perfectly, no give in the sleeves and kind of snug across my 36 DDD chest but it was relatively comfortable and it was gorgeous!

Great first experience on RTR!
This dress is beautiful! Lace color (golden) is stunning! Love love love the sleeves. They sure are a bit itchy, as other reviews mentioned, but they fit beautifully from shoulder to wrist (just tight enough, not loose or baggy). The only thing I would change is liner on the chest area, making it sit a little higher, as it felt like it was placed a little bit too low (I am 34DD). Overall I had an amazing experience through the entire process. It ca not get much easier than this! Thanks RTR!

Very pretty dress. Just didn't work for me.
I did not end up wearing this dress. It was very uncomfortable. The lace on the arms was very scratchy and pinchy. I felt like if I lifted my arms up the lace would rip. Overall ran small, as I don't usually wear a size 8, but I had seen that others reported that it ran small, so I sized up.

I think the color of the lace is really pretty and I like the layered look.
I read the other reviews on this dress and I would say that, for my sensitive skin, it wasn't that the dress was tight--it was that it is EXTREMELY itchy and uncomfortable. I liked the way it looked; it was alright, but I was happy to take it off.

I felt like royalty at my bridal shower! The detail is exquisite!
The dress is undeniably beautiful. I received so many compliments wearing it at my bridal shower. The detail and gold color make it classic and timeless. I have a very athletic build and I am very broad. After reading the reviews about the sleeves being stiff I became nervous but took a chance anyways! The sleeves were stiff but the 14 fit like a glove and it was perfect. I was very comfortable the whole afternoon. I am normally a 10-12 so the dress definitely runs small! I wish I could keep this gorgeous piece in my closet. I highly recommend renting it!!!

Great Dress for Our Yule Ball
This dress was beautiful. I wore it for a mini Yule Ball (from Harry Potter) my friends and I threw. I would not recommend it for pear shapes; there was very little stretch and my butt not fit well in the 6. The detailing on the arms was beautiful but uncomfortable.

Beautiful lace
I was a bit nervous about renting this dress because I have big arms and a larger chest (38DD). The arms were pretty restrictive (and slightly itchy) and the top flattened my boobs, but overall it worked out fine. I wore the 14, which is my normal dress size, along with Spanx and a strapless bra. I loved the gold lace and I thought the length was perfect. I would rent this dress again.

The gold lace is stunning. Perfect for my rehearsal dinner
Runs a little small. Would recommend sizing up. The length is a bit odd if you're on the shorter side. The sleeves are itchy but worth it!

I didn't wear this dress.
This is a gorgeous dress, but not made for me at all. Fit me awkwardly. And the lace overlay stuck to the lining. I was disappointed to say the least.

Pretty but not for me
I was a little disappointed. First the pros: This dress was extremely well made, and the details are gorgeous. The golden lace is delicately beautiful and the color is lovely. The sleeves fit surprisingly well. Now the cons: It didn't flatter me as well as I thought it would. The sleeves were very scratchy. I don't think I would have felt comfortable dancing at homecoming in a hot sweaty room. Closing: I'm sure this dress wold work great for someone and this dress would be best for an event that doesn't involve dancing; however, it wasn't for me. I didn't end up wearing it, but I did wear the Reem Acra Roxanne dress. Rent the Runway is a fantastic a company and I can't wait to rent again! They are reliable and trustworthy, and they carry amazing styles.

Dress was beautiful. I wore it to a rehearsal dinner. I got a lot of compliments.
It fit very true to size, but was a little snug around my boobs, but that was fine because it left me not having to wear a bra. The sleeves were a little itchy from the lace, but nothing that you can't get used to. I'm 5'0 and it was a good height for me. I'd recommend this dress with no hesitation!

This dress is beautiful! I'm normally a 2 and it was a bit snug, but it looked great on!
Besides the dress being a little tight, the sleeves were itchy. After awhile though, I didn't notice it itching anymore and it was a great party dress! My suggestion, don't wear if you're going to be somewhere warm and if you want to dance. I did receive a ton of compliments and I loved the dress overall, it's truly a piece of art!

Gorgeous dress with beautiful details.
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!

Rented this dress for a fancy wedding I attended.
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!

Elegant and unique
I wore this for my rehearsal dinner and couldn't have been happier. It was the right length and fit for a formal party but with a lot of interesting points in the layers and gold embroidery details. The long sleeves were beautiful and it still felt lightweight because of the delicate materials.

A close second as a replacement dress
Fits nicely but highlighted my tummy. The sleeves are roomy enough even for my chubby arms. I didn't wear this dress but it was my very close second choice! So pretty for a garden wedding.

I wore this dress for my sister in law's wedding in Austin,TX
I was really torn between wearing the size 2, which fit me comfortably from the chest but the sleeves looked very loose, or the size 0 which the sleeves fit great but was pretty tight from the chest. I ended up wearing the size 0. It was not the most comfortable dress and after wearing it for about 10 hours, 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.

Lace is SO stiff!
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.

Beautiful, high end Long Island wedding.
Dress was true to size, and I got tons of compliments. The mesh on the upper part of the dress is a little stiff and restricting, but overall the dress was relatively comfortable and really beautiful! I would definitely recommend it.

I rented this dress for my elopement in NYC and I loved it! I felt like a princess.
I usually wear 6, but I ordered a size 4, based on reviews. The size 4 was perfect in my body and I cant say that size 6 would be big, since received another dress as backup. It was my first experience with RTR and the service is great.

Fabulous rehearsal dinner outfit!
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!

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

Do not rent if you have hips
All of the reviews about not renting if you are hippy are completely true. This was sent as a back-up dress and I still couldn't use it. It looks beautiful in photos, but it is not flattering at all.

gorgeous dress, perfect for being one of my friend's 18 candles at her debut!
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.

Beautiful dress -
I received a size 12 and a size 14. The 12 was too small and the 14 didn't fit quite right. I ended up not wearing either one, but not the fault of RTR.

This was my first RTR experience and it was a great one. I rented this beauty for my rehearsal and rehearsal dinner before my wedding on Dec 26 and it was PERFECT! The dress is absolutely stunning. It was perfect for the winter season and it glistened all over. I got SO many compliments and felt like a princess.
