Flowery fun
I rented this for a party to raise money for the Enoch Pratt Public Librar, called the black and white party. I loved the flowers and received lots of compliments on the dress. It was a great dress for a great party to raise awareness of childhood literacy in Baltimore. I am short and carry some extra weight - especially up top. But this dress fit well and I loved it.

Date night in NYC
To the white roses and the navy blue ribbon in the back this dress had great detail. I wore an XS and usually wear a 2-4 in dresses. The only thing I would change is I wish it was a little tighter in the stomach area!

Runs Large!!
I usually wear a 0 or 2 and I ordered this dress in an XS. The dress was way too big, looked more like a size 4 or 6. The dress was very straight with very little shape and fell off my shoulders. I'd suggest ordering an XS for someone who usually wears a 4, 6 or even small 8. Beautiful dress, just didn't fit :(

Better on the model
This was an okay dress. I rented a XS, and it seemed a bit too large. I have a smaller bust, and you definitely need a larger one to fill this out. Also, it was super hard to walk in and hiked up a lot when I sat down. Overall, this dress simply didn't look as good as I had wanted it too. This is my first time ordering from Rent the Runway, so maybe this is common, but it felt a little like a sack and didn't hug my body as well as it looked to. The bow in the back was beautiful, though.

beautiful dress but runs big
I was really excited to get this dress. I talked with a fit specialist who was very helpful. I told her i Usually wear a 4 and she suggested the small and backup medium. When i got the small it looked huge on. It was also a lot longer than I expected. I would definitely recommend sizing down. I was bummed because it is so cute but my backup dress worked perfectly. Would be great for a spring event.

Roses are pretty but add bulk
First of all, I ordered both the M and the L because I wanted to be sure to have a nice fit. I tried on the L first, and found it to be too big and shapeless. Then I tried on the M which fit well but felt there was too much material in the stomach area. I was surprised that the M fit, as I recently had a baby and wear a size 12. The dress is gorgeous, but I think it would have looked better on someone thinner than I. The roses made me look and feel a bit larger than I am. I had to have a white dress for this event, and this dress did the trick, but next time I will stick with a more streamlined silhouette.

Got many compliments on how great I looked and where did I get such a cute dress. Thanks RTR!
I wore this dress to my bridal shower and it was a success. I was worried because the dress wasn't my first choice and I heard it ran big from other reviews and I wasn't sure about the bow. I ordered late so the medium was out of stock, I took the large and it turned out fine. The dress runs big on the top and add a little bulk because of the flowers. I had to wear a bra with a low strap so it couldn't be seen with the open back. That all being said the dress turned out great and I got many compliments, the bow turned out to be super cute and a nice touch. A very bridal dress i would encourage but recommend going a bit smaller because i think i would have had more shape if i had the medium on.

Very frenchie
I rented this dress for a French theme party and it was perfect! The dress is very striking. I would not rent this dress again because of the little threads on the dress that could get caught in the zipper. I unzipped it one time for the initial fitting - too scared to zip it again until the party day. Also a little afraid that the zipper would catch and I couldn't get it off.

Gorgeous! But runs large...
I ordered this dress in an XS for my engagement party and it was too big. The dress itself is beautiful and would look great on someone taller. The detail and bow on the back are so cute! I would say the XS was more like a Medium. I wish I could have worn it!

Huge dress!!!
I rented this for my sister to wear to her rehearsal dinner. Be advised, this dress runs huge!!! She actually couldn't wear either the XS or S and I ended up having to let her wear the dress I had rented. Make sure you try it on ASAP and if you are anywhere near 5'3" or smaller and weigh less than 120, this dress will probably not come close to fitting. It is a beautiful dress though.

cute style, a little boxy
I rented this dress for a cocktail party. I loved the ivory rosettes and the navy ribbon in the back was especially fun. However, the style was a bit to boxy and not particularly flattering from the front on my straight and narrow body type. I wouldn't order it again, but it might work for a different body typel

Great customer service, and so easy to use!
I got married on 8/10/2012, and I wore this dress (size small) for my very-very small civil service. We had pictures taken before by a photographer and as we walked down the streets of downtown Chicago I could hear people commenting on how beautiful the dress was! One little girl turned to her mom and was said, “wow that girls dress is beautiful!” Talk about a good confidence boost!The fit is odd to be honest-I used a blue belt the color of the bow to give it some shape-which helped, and fabric tape to tape the neckline into a sweetheart shape so it didn’t just flop around. The fabric and colors are gorgeous-really unique dress overall.

Odd lining in dress
I did not end up wearing this dress. I rented it for my bridal shower and it's a beautiful dress, but has a very tight lining in it. I could have easily fit into the 6 or 8, but the lining was squeezing my thighs and hips. Since the dress is very billowy, not form-fitting, I'm not sure why the inner lining is so much tighter. Something to consider when choosing a size!

The ruffles are huge but fun
The ruffles are big, it's very loose at the top because of the open back and a bit fitted through the hips. It was a fun dress but maybe slightly bridal (great for a bridal shower or rehearsal dinner). I wore it to a Friday evening cocktail event during the summer. I liked the dress but didn't love it.

Looked like a ruffled hospital gown
This was an 'emergency' rental for my bridal shower after various options didn't pan out. I'm barely 5'4" and this was so short I could not have sat or bent over. The idea of this is great, and the ruffles are beautiful, but the cut is absolutely terrible. It looked like a hospital gown with no shape definition at all.

I rented this for a date night with my fiance. It was a little big on me.
This was rented for a date night with my fiance. I rented it in a size large only because the md was out of stock. The dress was loose and baggy on me and didn't fit quit right. It looked very pretty and I'm sure if it were a bit tighter it would have been amazing on. It seems to run a bit big to size.

My own fault for ordering only an XS and no backup size- it didn't fit! but a beautiful dress nonetheless.. even prettier than in pictures, if possible. I will be renting it again as soon as I have an event to wear it to!

Great dress for my Bridal Shower!
I loved this dress. The texture of it is really beautiful, and the navy ribbon in the back was great. I would say that this dress is very short. I am not tall and I felt that when I sat down the dress came way up!

It is super cute on the rack, but on the body, it is not so great. I really wanted this dress to look good, but it was horrible. Maybe it would look good, it your body type is tall and curve?

Felt beautiful!
LOVED! The texture of the flowers were so fun, and the navy blue ribbon on the back is fun. It was a little loose around the stomach and a little tight around the hips (I'm pear shaped) but it the patterns of the flowers were thick enough that it was forgiving. A LOT OF COMPLIMENTS!

Gorgeous dress. The bow in the back is such a wonderful detail.
I ordered this as a back up and didn't actually wear this dress. I am a 6-8 and the Medium was definitely too big. I will likely rent this one again but in a smaller size.

Although everybody adored my dress and thought I looked great in it, I wasn't very comfortable in it
I am a size 4-6, and the small was pretty tight in the hips, but big on top (even though I'm busty). I know that is the nature of a shift style dress, but I need more of a shape to my dress. I thought I could just belt this dress, but even that did not fix all issues. If you like definition in your dress, do not rent. It's interesting because in the photo of the model, the waist looks nipped-in, but on me seemed straight up and down.

Wedding rehearsal dinner
I did not wear this dress because it ended up fitting very odd. The dress is very fitted underneath but the rosettes billow out and are not attached to the body of the dress. It was also very short (however, I am 6'0 tall!)

Pre-Wedding, Wedding Dress
We are getting married in Mexico, so elected to do a city hall wedding here in Chicago beforehand. We weren't going to tell anyone about it, but I loved the dress so much that we posted a picture on Instagram and now everyone knows! haha It was comfy and "bridal" without looking ridiculous for a city hall "ceremony." I would not recommend it for other pear shapes, but I couldn't resist the blue ribbon and open back!

IT does run small, and needs something to define the waist. I wore it with a big black satin ribbon belt and it looked very cute!

Love the detailing and the bow, wish it wasn't as wide!
At 5'4, I consider myself petite, but with very large shoulders for my height, waist, and hip size, and I really wish this dress fit more snug around my waist! If it was just a little tighter, it would have looked so cute, but it just looked a little too baggy, especially with the rosettes adding a little volume. However, I loved the open back and the navy ribbon and wished I could have pinned the waist of the dress without it looking too obvious.

Not quite right
I fell in love with this dress when looking for something to wear to my bridal shower, but I was very disappointed when I received the dress. It looked beautiful in the dress bag - all of the flowers looked great and it has been well taken care of. Unfortunately the fit just did not work for me. The size small was quite tight around my hips - there seemed to be NO stretch to the fabric at all. And the top gaped a lot at the back because I couldn't pull the dress down any further. It seems to be made for someone who is quite a bit taller than my 5'3 build and for someone who does not have hips. Needless the say the backup size (XS) was impossible to even put on. I would not recommend this dress for a pear shape gal. The one plus side was that the return process was VERY easy and I was able to get merchandise credit to use towards my next rental!

I rented this dress for my Bridal shower, and loved it in pictures.
In person it was beautiful, however the fit was a bit strange, I ordered the M and L the L was way to big and the medium's slip was tight but the fabric was bunchy. I think it would look great on a less curvy girl.

Beautiful dress but not meant for curves!
This dress was stunning and no one noticed I was constantly pulling it down. I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner. The material inside is a silky lining and was hugging very tight to my hips and thighs. I tried the small on and it looked like I was wearing a sleeping bag. It was huge. The dress is gorgeous and I was complimented on it all night. No one could tell that it was tight on my hips or legs because the material on the outside was loose. I would only recommend this dress to a girl that doesn't have curves or doesn't mind being uncomfortable!

did not wear
I could not wear the dress, I usually wear an 8 or a 10 and both sizes were HUGE. A belt didn't even help because there was just so much fabric. The fabric it self was beautiful. But the dress has a very strange fit- tight on the bottom and very loose everywhere else.

A beautiful, original and intricate dress!
I rented this dress for one of my bridal showers and absolutely loved it. I rented a S and an XS after reading the reviews, and ended up wearing the S because the XS was way too short for me. The S was still a little on the short side (I'm 5'7") but because it's not a skin-tight fit, I felt like it was still very appropriate. It does have a lose fit around the middle, but in no way comes off as looking baggy or strange. It's just such a unique and delicate fabric, people literally stopped me on the street to compliment me on it.

Beautiful dress but not very flattering
I loved this dress, but even the extra small was too big. I wore it anyway, but I did look a little boxy/shapeless.

Beautiful dress that is meant for women with no curves
I really wanted this dress to work. I read all the reviews about the fit and decided that I wanted it anyway, and ordered an XS and a S. The top of the XS looked fine on me, but I guess I have a bigger booty than I thought because it was so tight around the hips. The S fit around my hips, but the top was so loose, even after tying the bow in the back. It is a well made, beautiful dress that would be perfect for women with no curves (it does not taper around the waist at all), or booty.

Beautiful dress, but for very specific body type
I was so excited to try this dress, but it didn't work for me. Some reviewers said that it was too big, so I got a small and a medium as a back-up. I felt that the small was pretty true to size, but because of the shape, I could see where maybe people felt it was too big. The picture on the model makes it look like there's a little shape to it, but in reality, the dress is a straight up & down shift, and the rosettes makes it look bulkier. Additionally, the color is really more of a darker ivory, which blended into my skin tone exactly. And not in a good way. Beautiful dress, but I should have listened to reviewers that warned girls with hips and boobs to stay away. This would be adorable on girls with a more boyish figure or are petite.
