Flirty Fun!
This dress was so much fun to wear. It is different because one side of the dress has a pleated "flare" and then the other side is pencil skirt-ish (not as tight). I am a 36D and was able to wear a regular bra with a paperclip in back to pull in the straps so they weren't visible from the back. The fabric is definitely a thicker fabric, so it is forgiving in that it won't show dimples or dents or whatever. Also, gorgeous Kelly green color... I wore it with black pumps, but could definitely get away with nude and even a sparkly color depending on your jewelry. It is on the shorter side, especially when sitting, so I just made sure to be aware. Otherwise, I was definitely comfortable with the length and no one even commented that it was too short. I wish I had a good picture to post, but I haven't found one yet. Simply Gorgeous!!

I have not worn it for an event as of yet.
This dress came to me in a very wrinkled state and even though it states it is a size 12 on the garment it is much smaller, perhaps along the lines of a 4-6.

Gorgeous Color!
The dress was super cute. Nice material, well made. It was short, but that was expected from other reviews. I am quite curvy and it was flattering on my shape. I would definitely rent it again.

Weird fit, kind of tacky
I was really disappointed with this dress - it was sent as a replacement because the one I wanted was damaged. It was pretty snug around the hips, which is surprising given the picture. I don't typically have problems in that area, either. The material is a little tacky as well. While I had it on, I felt like a teenager (not in a good way) - just not very sophisticated at all. I couldn't wear it.

Great fit! Very flattering, true to size, GORGEOUS color! Got compliments all night! Great event-to-going-out dress. Usually not a fan of asymmetrical seams/hems, but the flounce on the right hip in this dress is really cute!

Great dress for Vegas Wedding
I was nervous about the fit of this dress after reading that it ran very small. I ended up getting 2 sizes up so it was comfortable to wear all day/night. It is short so be aware getting in and out of cars and it hikes up when you sit. Beautiful kelly green color, the pleat in the corner gives it a little sass, and I liked that it was dressy without being stuffy.

Wore it with a gold belt and just earrings and it worked well. Runs small!
The dress runs small compared to other styles, but it's a stunning emerald green colour. I paired it with a gold belt and the earrings that go with the necklace the model is wearing and got TONS of compliments. I'd size up next time though as it was a bit snug and I kept having to tug it down.

I wore this dress while on vacation in Maui to a farewell formal party!
The dress is fun to wear with the side flare but it can make you look a little wider if you have larger hips. I would suggest dressing it up with a fun belt or colorful shoes since the dress, while beautiful color, can be plain. Helpful tip: If you are ordering to a destination (ie Hawaii) ask to have the dress arrive a day earlier than you think, my dress came in same day as party when I requested a day earlier. **Sorry no photo at this time :(

Too Short!!
The dress was adorable, but I am 5'4 and it was too short! The dress is form fitting under the ruffly part, which lends to the feel of it being too short. (Short + fitted = hard to move) I truly felt like if I moved the wrong way at the wedding I would show some skin unintentionally, so I didn't end up wearing it.

This was my first RTR dress, however it didn't workout. The pictures made it look like more of an A-line dress, but it's more of a pencil skirt. As someone who is a bit more bootylicious, it was a bit too snug. I wasn't able to wear it, but RTR CS was great. It was too late to get a new dress, but they credited my account without any problems. I'm renting again, and I'm hoping I did enough research this time around.

The asymmetry is unique and feminine, I love this dress!
The fabric is a little strange, and is not forgiving in photographs, BUT I got nothing but compliments, and the color is amazing!

The color was amazing! I received so many compliments. A must rent!
I normally wear a size 4. My chest is 32DD so i had to size up for this dress. The top portion was tight but fit fine without a bra. Since I had to size up the waist was too big but it worked. I was out of town so had I been home I would have belted it for a perfect fit. I'm 5'8" and although short the flutter on the side made it feel appropriate and fun. I would recommend being careful when seated though. Would definitely recommend to someone with smaller chest. The top was very flattering!

Beautiful, vibrant color!
Our local art center was hosting a green-themed bash, so this looked like the perfect party dress! The fun, frilly skirt made this stand out from the basic tank mini dress and the fabric was nice and shiny. Plan to wear this for an event at which you'll be standing most of the time, as the skirt is a bit short! My main complaint is that the size that usually fits with Rent the Runway dresses still ran a bit large. Thank goodness for jackets!

Nice dress!
This dress wasn't necessarily one if my favorites but it was cute. I wore it to a beach wedding. I think it was the fact that I couldn't get the pleats pressed out right. The dress needed to be steamed and the hotel iron was not doing the job. However I got a lot of compliments. I'm top heavy and it was a little snug in the chest but not too constricting. I wore with a racer back bra to hide the straps. Overall, it was a good dress.

Pretty color, awkward fit.
The dress is a beautiful color, but was super big in the waist and the skirt didn't lay the way it does on the model. The material was also much thicker and heavier than I expected.

Fun color and interesting design.
The color is the best part of the dress. It is a rich emerald. The fabric has zero stretch and runs small. I have a petite frame but still have some curves. It was not the best fitting dress for my shape.

I wore this for a St. Patrick's Day festival. Loved the color and the style!
The color is vibrant and green-perfect for March! The only downside is the fabric is very taut and isn't very forgiving in the mid-section. I wore tights to smooth it out, though.

Not for women with any sign of hips
Sigh. I hate to write a negative review but alas, I must. The picture I posted is the best picture I had, and it actualy makes the dress look decent. But do not be fooled. I think I deleted all the other ones but if I find them I'll post them later so you can see. Anyway, I rented this dress for an outdoor summer wedding in Central Park. I was super excited about this dress because of the bright color and the asymmetrical skirt. And my excitement did not fade when I saw it in person (on the hanger). The green is a perfect kelly green color. The outer material is silky without being too shiny. It was perfect. However when I put it on I couldn't even get on the 4. The dress has an inner lining which is ridiculously, unnecessarily tight in the hips. Also I think I have pretty average hips. Not huge. It seriously doesn't even make sense. So I ended up wearing the size 6.... which even that I could barely get on. And then it was somewhat baggy in the waist so it was just completely unflattering. I don' think I can explain enough how uncomfortable this dress was. I only wore it because I had NOTHING else to wear. It was so tight I could barely walk in it, let alone dance or sit down. Then on top of that, because it was tight in the boobs and hips, but not in the waist, it wasn't flattering and made me look fatter than I am. Ew. Other negatives: it was very shot and I'm 5'3." It was fine for me because I wanted something short but just be aware. Also the outside material is thick PLUS it has the super tight lining so it was actually a very heavy dress. This could be a good thing... but the wedding I wore it to just happened to be outside during a 105 degree day and I was DYING. The material doesn't breathe at all. Part of the reason I picked this dress is because I thought it would be cool and comfortable. NOT the case. So in summary, clearly I would never rent this dress again. And unless you have NO hips DO NOT get this dress or you will be disappointed.

Amazing color! Great Fit. Easy to accessorize.
It fit great. I wore my own gold metal stretch belt with it, which really accentuates the waist. Would rent over and over and over!

This dress it very pretty and I really wanted to be able to wear it but I definitely should've picked the larger size. It has ZERO stretch and isn't very forgiving. Color is great though

Great, fun dress perfect for a party
I loved the color of the dress and the sassy ruffle on the side. I usually have to have dresses hemmed but this dress actually fit a shorter figure perfectly. The only part that wasn't great was the top-- it was too big in the bust, even with a padded bra, but it wasn't extremely noticeable. I wore it with the DVF zebra clutch pictured here and loved the look.

Perfect summer cocktail dress
The little mermaid flap on the side was very unexpected. It added a little something extra to the dress, that otherwise would have made it boring. It needs to be ironed down so that it doesn't flap out so much, but otherwise its a head turner. The dress runs true to size, but beware, if you are looking for a little bit of a stretch, this dress has no give.

Beautiful green made a statement at my reunion
The color of this dress was AMAZING. I will say tho that the material made it look a little more formal than I was anticipating so I had to rethink my accessories & dress it down a little to fit the event I was going too. Also the asymmetrical side is much more pronounced in real life than in the picture. I really liked it since it was kinda flirty and fun, but just wanted to make ppl aware in case that's not your thing.

Cute dress. Great for any season.
This is a really cute dress. I wore it to a beach wedding and I got lots of compliments. I wore it with purple shoes, which off set the blue necklace perfectly. This dress must be seen in person for you to be wowed by it. A friend of mine rented it for a wedding previously, and it looked amaze on her so I rented it- I would have never looked twice at it online. It has a black zipper down the back, and she wore a black necklace and pumps which looked great too. It is a versatile fabric and could be worn in the winter. The only thing I did not like was that it got a water stain on it as I was sipping my water and the sweat from the glass dripped on it.

Careful renting this if you're tall!
The dress is gorgeous on the hanger, and the color is awesome, but just didn't quite work on me. I wasn't expecting the flair to be quite so dramatic on one side, with none at all on the other. The biggest issue for me was length -- I'm 5'8 and rented the dress in a 4 and 6. Both were REALLY short, and while the 4 fit better around the bust and waist it was absolutely too short to wear. I would be weary to rent this as a taller girl, I definitely couldn't have gone any bigger as the bodice would have been huge. I ended up wearing and loving my backup dress though!

Great color but tight through hips
This is a really cute dress with the asymmetrical bottom half. I normally wear a size 6, but I felt that the straight/flat part of the dress was too tight and short in the 6. It was much more comfortable and dance-able in the 8, though that made the bust and body a little looser than I would have liked. It's a little difficult to sit in, but not unmanageable.

I wore this dress for my engagement party and got so many compliments I am going to rent it again!
Great fit for a petite frame. The dress is shorter than other Milly dresses so it hit me mid thigh but was very flattering. I wish I could have kept it! It fit well in the bust with plenty of room to wear a bra with very light padding.

Gorgeous dress
I got this dress to wear to a wedding, it is a beautiful dress but the run was too large for my small body. I suggest getting one size smaller to ensure the right fit.

What size did you end up wearing? It looks like we're about the same size, so what would you recommend? Thanks! :)
