Perfect dress for spring wedding events.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Wore this dress to a Rehearsal Dinner held on a patio overlooking a horse farm. It was perfect for the occasion. I had to wear the larger size, as this dress is quite straight and tight through the hips - might not be the best choice for fellow pears. The top was pretty loose and I had to tape the bust line to avoid an accident. The V neckline was too low cut for me to wear a strapless bra. I paired it with an orange pashmina that helped me feel a little more modest. The fabric is really beautiful - there is a subtle flower print on the white, with the pink links printed over top.

The color is amazing --- perfect for a summer wedding. The V-neck is super deep though so make sure you have a good push-up if you are smaller on top.

I met a girl at the wedding after she complimented my dress. We bonded over Rent the Runway, I'm inviting her, she's really excited about the concept.

This dress fit great! The only issue I had was finding a bra that worked under it. My normal strapless bra wasn't low enough. I ended up having to get the Maidenform Combo Wing Bra and that worked perfectly. I have no hips (8 on top, 2 on bottom), so I was grateful for all the reviews saying this dress is small in the hips. Normally I don't fill the bottom half of dresses but this one seemed to be made for me.

I wore this dress to an outdoor wedding - great color and detail. Loved the neckline! The only issue I had was that the dress would bunch up at the hips so a lot of pulling down was needed. Overall, very pleased with the rental.

I absolutely loved this dress! It fit perfectly and if I happened to have a couple hundred dollars lying around, I would totally buy this dress! I wore it to an outdoor wedding...in the middle of the summer...in the middle of the day...on one of the hottest days of the year and, even though I was sweating, you couldn't tell (no sweat marks or anything)! Highly recommended!

Perfect wedding guest dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Beautiful dress! Everyone seemed to love it. Be cautious as the bust area is a strange cut/size. I'm a smaller chested woman and was not able to wear a bra with this due to tightness yet felt like the girls could pop out if I started dancing too much. The fabric has no stretch to it but the cut was so flattering and lady-like. I felt like a true southern belle wearing this dress.

its a great pattern but ran larger in the chest area and smaller in the hips. The dip in the neckline runs deep and if you wear a darker color pair of underthings-it is noticeable..

Perfect rehearsal dinner dress

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this for my friend's rehearsal dinner at a country club. It fit perfectly and I felt great in it. One snafu: the fabric was a bit worn around the zipper and it looked like the last renter might have had a bigger bust than mine as I could see wear along where the bust cups meet in the middle. But honestly, I'm being nit-picky. It was a great dress!

I wore this to a college graduation and loved the slim fit. The lowcut top did gape a bit if I leaned to far forward, but otherwise it was a great dress. The skirt is definitely narrow, but if you like the fit on non-stretchy pencil skirts, you will like this dress.

Beautiful pattern and classic dress.

I got this dress for my college graduation. It was absolutely stunning on the hanger, but I was disappointed to find out that it was a tad large. I usually get a size up because I have very broad swimmer's shoulders, but this time I didn't need to. I coudn't "fill out" the dress on top and the dress tape I wore faded off and so people could only see the bottom of the dress in the end. I would have worn a smaller size but they were out of the next size down. Should have gone with a different dress... oh well!

I'm not typically a huge Milly fan, but this dress was a hit. I wore it to a work-related cocktail party and it was great. Even on me at 5'9", the dress hit less than an inch above my knees. It's not as low cut as it looks in the photo, either, so if you're looking for something scandalous, it's not this one. The fabric is beautifully cut and is a thick material that sits perfectly.

Pretty Dress. Nice fabric. Poor fit.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for an outdoor tented dinner event. I usually wear a size 10, but wore a 12 because of the slim hips. The top was very low cut and did not fit quite right - it seemed really wide. I am a C cup. I wore a backless strapless bra with it, but the bra kept showing. I ended up having to wear a wrap over me so no one could see. I am sure this dress probably fits better on others, just not for me. Too bad because its really pretty.

Perfect Daytime Dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I wore this dress to the horse races in Del Mar and received a number of compliments. It is a very va-va-voom type of dress that accentuates (or creates) an hourglass figure. I wore bra petals, as a bra would've been impossible. The fabric is heavy weight and the structure of the dress is tight enough that a bra might not have even been necessary at all. As others have said this dress does fit tight in the hips and in my case, thanks to years of swimming, a bit tight in the shoulders as well. I didn't worry too much about the hips when I ordered it as mine aren't all that wide, but if you do have wide hips absolutely go a size up. I typically wear a 4 or a 6 and went with the 6 which I still found myself adjusting around the hips Overall it was a perfect dress for the occasion and I would definitely rent it again.

This dress was tight in the hips, loose in the waist and I couldn't get the straps to stay up. Also- if you have anything over a B cup it's going to be pretty inappropriate which I don't think is the look that people renting this dress are going for.

Beautiful Dress but...

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I can't really give this dress a bad rating because it is a beautiful dress, however, with my bust size it just didn't work for me. I tried both a 10 and a 12, and they were both a little big everywhere but the chest. The triangles are smaller than I thought they would be and there was just no way I could wear it without looking extremely inappropriate. However, the length was perfect, hitting an inch or so above the knee and the material and color were both gorgeous.

Really loved this dress - it was perfect for a summer wedding!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Unfortunately, I needed the 8 in this dress and it has been discontinued by RTR. The dress runs a bit small in the bust/back area, and while I'm small chested, I have a large rib cage, so the 6 fit me everywhere, but didn't zip up! That said, the 10 was an ok fit. The main issue is that it ended up being a bit big in the hips and the straps kept falling down, but it still looked great. Overall, a beautiful dress, just a bit unforgiving sizing-wise if you aren't narrow.

I loved this dress! I had some sizing issues, but RTR got them worked out right away and sent me the correct size within a day. I usually wear a dress size six, but have fuller hips so had to size up two sizes to feel comfortable in the dress. Reviews are correct, it runs a little small and definitely works better with a fuller chest. That being said, once I got the right size I felt beautiful all night. The fabric is is textured and beautiful and SO flattering and gives your body a great contour! Definitely can see myself renting this one again!

Loved the pattern and the style was perfect for the occasion but the fit was off. It bunched up in stomach area, making it appear that I had a weird pooch there, and it was Really low cut so for busty women this is not the right choice (i'm a 32D) - the straps were too long and I ended up knotting them to shorten them so that the dress wouldn't be so low cut. Overall, it wasn't a dress I would have chosen to wear or buy but it worked out fine for the occasion.
