Everything about this dress was perfect, from the pockets to the built-in petticoat.

I'm somewhere between 14 and 16, and this fit me just right- would have been too tight if I were a true 16. My big boobs had plenty of room! It is a bit low cut, just to warn. The asymmetric skirt, built-in petticoat, and pockets were all I've ever wanted in a dress. This dress is my everything. Take care of this dress, future renters. It deserves all your love. It was so hard for me to give up. <3

Show stopper dress. A little low cut, runs very true to size so order up if you're apple shaped!

This dress was absolutely incredible to see in pictures, and I have to admit I was more excited for this dress than for the wedding itself! A few things to well in mind: this dress is pretty low cut in the front. If you're busty, the girls will definitely be having a hey day. This dress runs VERY true to size. It has no give in the waist area, which if you have a rounder belly, might become uncomfortable or hard to zip because the skirt starts to flare out around the belly area, not below the bust (there's also a petticoat under the skirt which makes it looks super full.) I have a smaller waist than my belly, so that was hard to zip up or keep the waist part where unwanted it to sit. Other than that, I felt like an absolute princess, and the dress is beautifully made. So many people said such wonderful things in person and from photos about this show stopper dress. It is absolutely lovely.

Is it just me or did everyone think the back would be floor length?

Can I ask what size you typically wear? I am trying to decide which size to order. It looks gorgeous!

Bust runs small

Beautiful color and fabric (not satiny like it looks in the picture). There's a crinoline underneath that created a lot of volume, though, which makes the skirt really, really full. I have a large chest (36 DDD).... This dress has no stretch to it and while it fit perfectly through the waist, I was a good 2 inches away from zipping it up at the top.

This dress was so much fun to wear!

I wore this to a charity auction and I had people coming up to me all night to tell me it was their favorite dress at the event. I even had a few tell me the same thing days later! I loved the full skirt and the color blocking at the bottom. The downside was that the straps were about 3 inches too long. I had to pin them into place and hide the pins.

Beautiful fabric and color. Loved the pockets! Received a ton of compliments.

A bit tight in the bust area. V in the back was low so you need a low bra or pull your bra down and tape it.

This dress was perfect foe the company party!

I knew I'd be a little overdressed for the event, but it didn't matter with this beautiful gown! I got so many compliments, even strangers asked where I got the dress! This was mu fist "rent", and I'll be back for more! Thanks for the care... I had a minor scare when the dresses came, and wasn't sure they were going to fit. The even over-nighted me extras! Excellent customer service! I wear scrubs and tennies/sneakers most days, so a formal dress like this was such a treat! I was so sad to mail this dress back! Thank you, RTR!

Beautiful dress

The dress was gorgeous and the material was lovely...however it was far too low cut for the gala I was attending on behalf of my company. I would definitely rent this again for a wedding, though!

Great fabric, beautiful color. Wish it would have worked for me.

So I usually wear a size 18, due to the other reviews I went ahead and ordered the dress in a 20 and a 22. I couldn't get the dress zipped in the 20. So what, I thought, I ordered the 22 for just this reason. I got the 22 zipped but the straps were too short, the bust isn't flattering [seems to flatten my larger chest] and overall much larger in the skirt [with the sewn in petticoat] then i was anticipating.

I got a lot of compliments on this dress. It's very pretty

Bust area is kind of small. I'm a 38DD and my boobs were smashed a little. On the bright side it gave me great cleavage lol.

The navy and royal blues stood out in the crowd of black. The shape was very flattering for busty

Not sure what to say other than the fit was perfect. I'm not very hippy for a large girl, and the dress made my shape stand out. Very classy yet feminine and fun! The dress did run small so I had to go up a few sizes to accommodate my bust, but it worked out well. Only problem I find is that every time I try on dresses the zippers have issues. This dress had a minor problem during the fitting but I still took it home that evening. In the middle of the event, the zipper broke and my entire dress was open in the back. Now, keep in mind that the dress wasn't tight. . . had no problems zipping up. . . but the zipper popped at the end of the night and was very embarassing!

I loved this dress!! It was absolutely beautiful on and so unique.

You definitely need to size up on this dress. I am normally a size 16 and the 18 was snug on me in the chest. When I order this again, I would definitely size up to a 20.

Perfect balance of classic and trendy!

The dress ran true to size. I don't have a large bust but it fit perfect! This was my first rental and I was extremely skeptical given the fact my body shape is harder to fit most dresses. (Rounder middle) I tried the dress on and was in love! The material is more of a heavier weight and has crinoline under the skirt for the intended volume. The color was great and the drama of the back length was the perfect balance of classic but trendy!

So many compliments and I felt like royalty in that dress!

The straps were a bit to big when I sat, but standing was fine. The shape is so flattering that I felt like I could eat and drink what I wanted without worrying about it. Just the right amount of snug in the chest area. The back was low, so I had to make sure my bra stayed down low enough. Overall, amazing dress and I would recommend it to any curvy woman! So flattering!

This dress was a perfect gem for me. I felt like a princess in this dress. I wore it to a friends wedding and received so many compliments. It's true to size and fit perfect. I would have loved to rent it again but I posted a pic and got over 100 likes so can't do that HAHAHA

Danced the night away.

I wore this to a wedding and it was easy to sit, walk, and dance in. The 18 was available, so I went with the 20 and it was definitely too big. I pinned up the straps to help hide the bra, and reduce the cleavage. The bride made a point to come over and compliment my dress!

Outdoor wedding by the lake...cocktail hour.

This was my first time at RTR. this dress spoke to me. Came in the box earlier than expected wrapped nicely. I am big busted 38D and it was too tight. I couldn't zip up the dress it was flattening my chest. If I could have gotten the bigger size I would have been fine. Cannot wear a regular bra the back is lower. The material is beautiful and the dress itself is classy. I called RTR theYywere so helpful and accommodating. I got this dress on Friday. The wedding was sat. They shipped two different dresses to my hotel along with jewelry. Isabella at customer service was patient in my flustered state. I had requested the size 20 in this dress but it was unavailable. I had to make a decision quick so that my new dress would ship in time. They didn't charge me extra either. Will rent again!

LOVE <3

Rented an 18 and a 20, and ended up wearing the 20. I'm a 40D, 5'6", and full figured. The dress doesn't have any stretch, so I had to wear the larger size to fit my bust. The pockets are awesome!! The dress color was gorgeous!! Definitely would rent this dress again, and will definitely use RTR for more occasions. The process was great and the results were even better!! Lots of compliments! :)

Best Dress 100% Would Wear Again!

So, I'm about 5'2" and have a 38G cup.... Dresses are like the ultimate challenge, especially fitted (non stretch fabric) ones w/ zippers. When I say my boobs fit in this gorgeous dress, they fit. I usually wear a 16 but erred on the side of caution given it was fitted dress and went up a size. Sure there's cleavage but that is a fact of the curvy girl life. It lays on the waist just right and I love the high low. Let's not forget the pockets (no purse necessary). I wore it to a Friday night wedding at a country club and was complimented all night. BEST DRESS EVER.

Le sigh.

Love, love, love this dress! I got so many compliments on it - it wasn't too heavy or warm and I wore this to an outdoor wedding. It is definitely fitted through the ribcage, but had plenty of room in the hips. I was able to wear a strapless bra with no worries about it showing in the back. The front V is LOW, but not distasteful. The best thing about this? POCKETS. I hated to wrap this up this morning to ship back to RTR. I rented this one and the 20 as a back up and ended up wearing the 18. The 20 was more comfortable through the ribcage as this dress is fitted, but it was too loose around the bust and through the shoulder straps, so I went with the smaller size.

Such a fun dress. Loved the pockets and the cut of the dress!

The fir and flare gave me a tiny waist and the pockets were great. Loved the high low. As with most formal gowns, this one runs a bit small.

I love this dress. Wore it for my birthday and got compliments all night.

This is a gorgeous dress. I was nervous about it fitting across my very large chest (I'm a 38J), and I'll be honest it was tight. But it worked. I had to get help, I needed help with the zipper, but once I was in, it was pretty comfortable. It runs a bit small, but considering it accommodated my bust, I can't be mad at that. There is a bit of a crinoline underneath, that does wonderful things for the shape of the dress, but it can be a little tricky when you sit down. Also, the v in the back is pretty low, so you may end up pulling your bra band down a lot. After the 2nd time I did it, I stopped worrying about it. I loved the length of the dress. Both the front and back of the hi low hem hit in flattering places. For reference I'm 5'8" and wore 2.5 inch heels. The fabric on this dress is pretty thick. I rather like that, but it may be heavy for some people. All in all though, I loved this dress and I definitely plan on renting it again.

Compliments all night!

Fit perfectly! My measurements for reference: 5'10" tall, 38H, 36" waist, 47 Hip. I normally wear a 16 but ordered according to the measurements from the designer. Very comfortable and so pretty. Guests were compliments me all night on it. I worked a formal event for 10 hours and was very happy with how comfy it was. Also, it has POCKETS! Held my phone and work radio so no need to awkwardly carry a bag. So happy with this dress, will definitely rent from RTR again.

The dress was not fussy at all but absolutely breathtaking. I was the belle of the ball, literally.

The dress fit just a tad bit tight but that was my own fault ( I put on a extra pound or 5. I am pear shaped and it payed effortlessly on every curve. I absolutely adore this dress.

Modern Elegance

EDIT 8/8/15 MV: Wore this for the 125th Anniversary Celebration for The University Club of San Francisco! I felt fabulous and received numerous comments in person and on social media. Great fit, great cut. Rented the 18 and the 20, wore the 18 I rented this dress as a backup for an event and did not end up wearing it as it was a little too fancy for the affair. However, I am currently trying to find an event where I can rent this dress again as it is very pretty! With kitten heels on my 5'8" frame, the hem of the back was about an inch off the floor, so no tripping! The top part of the hem in the front hit my thighs at a flattering point, so I did not look stumpy. The color is true to the picture, and the dress is quite fluffy, especially in the bustle. The cleavage is deeper than on the model, and the back is quite low. A regular bra shows in the back. Would definitely pick this again!

Beautiful fabric. Color and texture are beautiful. I'm usually a 14-16. This had plenty of room for my 38DD's and was completely comfortable and elegant. It has POCKETS! If you are thinking it, rent it. It is so much prettier in person.

It was a dress fit for a black tie wedding! Tons of compliments. Easy to dance the night away!

I was so sad to package this dress up. I wanted to keep it forever. When I picked up the dress from the Rent the Runway store in Las Vegas, it was love at first sight. I had ordered two sizes too big as I had a lot of reviews. Figured I'd rather have to pin something than not be able to breathe. Thank goodness, I did. The dress runs extremely tiny. The two size too large dress fit perfectly. Trust me, my measurements had me at a smaller one, but the dress can be difficult for different shapes. The color is stunning. The dress is stunning. I wore this to a black tie wedding outside, and I was extremely comfortable. It wasn't too hot. I was able to enjoy food all night long. Danced for several hours. The straps stayed in place, no need for a bra. Everyone kept commenting how much they loved it. Would rent again and again!

No one else had a dress that was similar.

I thought this dress was satin, but it was a much heavier fabric than that, perfect for a beautiful fall evening. I thought it was pretty true to size, but a little tight around the midriff. The straps were pretty wide-set but didn't fall off my shoulders, even though I have very small shoulders. I liked how this sort of made it feel like an off the shoulder dress. There was tulle underneath that made the dress look full the whole night. The color online was spot on. I loved that it was a blue dress, instead of the typical black affair. I really wish I could add this dress to my closet.

Fit true to size, loved the gown. As a gal who is 5'4" it was extra important to wear HIGH heels to avoid looking a bit frumpy. Gorgeous fabric & high quality gown.

Dress felt good all around. The bust was a teeny small for me but I made it all fit.

The straps were a bit big. I was very surprised about that because I have a very long torso. The length was a little shirt in the front for me but I was expecting that for my height. I had SO many compliments on the dress.

Very pretty dress, love the color.

Wore to an outdoor fall wedding, color was so beautiful. Runs a bit small, I'm normally 18/20, so glad I got larger size. Adds a bit of bulk to your bottom, which adds to the drama of the dress, but may not be for everyone. Very sheek 2015 version of a princess dress. Loved it!

Beautiful dress. Received compliments on it. I felt great in it.

The only con is that it does gap out a bit in the back and shoulders. But not so bad that I was self-conscience about it. I felt wonderful in it. It was so comfortable. And the pockets are such a great bonus.

STUNNING! No other way to describe this dress. I need it in my life on a permanent basis.

FIT - VERY true to size. No given in the bodice, length is perfect if you are 5'3" or shorter so it delivers DRAMA. I am 5'1.5 on a good day, so I need one of those bra pasty contraptions. You can't pull off a bra in this dress if you have a short torso. AND you need to be comfortable with the boobs because everyone else will see them. LOL COLOR - Spectacular. The blue is rich and regal. OVERALL - LOVE THE DRESS and YOU WILL SHINE

Got compliments all night!

It runs a tiny bit small, so I wore the backup. I could've squeezed into the 16 but opted for comfort. Not a lot of give around the ribs and chest, so it pushed up a lot of cleavage, but the dress is cut high enough that it didn't look tarty. The taffeta underskirt that kicks out under the waist makes this a very forgiving dress!

This dress was perfect- flattering, fancy & made me feel amazing.

I ordered the 16 & and the 18 in this dress, and received an email a day before delivery to let me know that the 16 (my usual size) was no longer available due to damage. I picked 5 backup styles and they sent me the first available, but luckily the 18 fit me! The straps were a little loose and the back gaped slightly- I like to think the 16 would have fit me better but the waist was pretty snug. Overall this dress looks even better in person than it does on the model- extremely flattering and made me feel the perfect amount of fancy for the black tie wedding I was attending.

Small in bust

This dress runs small as others mentioned in the bust. It fit fine everywhere but in the bust. I am a 42 D but usually don't have problems with the chest area. Lovely dress otherwise
