Beautiful gown
I ordered this beauty. It was stunning and fit perfectly. At 5'9- 114 pounds I was able to wear the 0l with 4" heels and still have the train brush the ground. Unfortunately I did not wear the dress because both the 0L and 2L came ripped and unwearable. I was disappointed I couldn't wear it because the gown was spectacular

Fun Floral!
I loved this dress! I wore this to my first military ball and had a blast. It has pockets!! I generally shy away from dresses you can 't wear a bra with, but this one has a great shape and I didn't need one. The fabric is beautiful and the print is so unique! The color is not as loud as I thought it would be. Extremely comfortable and not tight in the waist. A lot of fun to wear- definitely a stand-out dress!!!

Loved it, it was a floral themed event and I felt great and received so many compliments.
It fit like a glove, but was comfortable and flowy. I bought a stick on backless bra to feel secure because you cannot wear a bra with this.

A wise lady would rent this dress.
Beautiful dress, I received compliments all night long! You can notice some wear across the bottom hem as the back is a little longer than the front. You can also notice wear around the arms, but no one else will once you have it on! Both the 8R and he 6R fit, but I went with the 8R as it was a bit more comfortable around the waist. As others have mentioned the neckline did bunch on occasion. You can get away with not wearing a bra as the dress is sufficient to keep you in - I wore a strapless and bandless bra as I felt more comfortable with a bra on. 3" heels with this and it was the perfect length!

Compliments all evening!!! I wanted something special and this was it!
Definitely get a size larger than you normally wear just because it's tight in the waist/rib area. I should have done this with my original rental as all other reviews concerning waist size were correct. When the size I ordered didn't fit, RTR overnighted another size just as promised! Amazing customer service!!!!! Can't wait to rent again!

Elegant and well made gown
Absolutely stunning dress. Didn't need a bra, just pasties worked fine. Fits well to the body and is very flattering. The long worked great and I even wore 3' heels (i'm 6' tall). I was 12 weeks pregnant here and felt a little bloated but this concealed everything and I was comfortable. The back is truly gorgeous with the criss cross detail.

Rented for my friend's formal wedding
This dress is beautiful and the print was such a hit. That being said, the fit was a little bit big all over for me. I wore 3.5" heels and the dress still dragged the ground in the back and sides a bit which made it challenging to dance in. Overall a great experience, though! My friends loved it!

I had strangers walking up to me all night to compliment the dress. Felt like a princess in the dres
The 10 zipped but was very tight at the waistline. The 12 was very comfortable and easy to dance in

Beautiful rooftop wedding in the heat of the summer.
The dress was as described and I too received compliments like the other ladies who wore this dress. The zipper was tricky (requires two people). The neckline is higher than shown on the model. The chest area is indeed larger than the waist. Big watch out: This dress is not for warm weather festivities - it is heavy and does not breathe. Overall, a really pretty dress for a special evening.

More compliments than the bride!
I recieved so many complments on this dress! It was a bit tight around the waist area, enough that I did have to size up, and it was still a bit snug. It was still comfortable though. My hair was almost the exact same color as the dress as well, so everyone loved it! I wish I had somewhere else to wear this!

Gorgeous gown
So I'm almost 6 feet tall (about 6'2" in the picture) and this is a pretty long dress (14R) which I wore to an Indian wedding. I'm generally in between a size 12 and 14 and this had an odd fit for me - looser top (I'm a 36C) and tight waist. I would recommend this dress as I got a lot of compliments, it was fairly comfortable and it has pockets(!!!!)

Stunning dress, highly recommend
This was my first time trying Rent The Runway and I was pretty nervous. Two of my friends wore this same dress and highly recommended it. I am so so glad I listened to them! The dress was stunning and I received compliments all night. The pockets are clutch - I could carry my phone and lipgloss around all night. After reading other reviews, I was a little nervous that the dress would dwarf me - I have a small frame. The 0R was actually a great fit, and while it was tight around the ribs, I think it needed to be to showcase my smaller frame up too. The bottom wasn't too much fabric and it hung perfectly. I wore heels, but the 0R still drug on the ground a tiny bit at the back. The material is pretty heavy, but it was great for a central California wedding where it's warm during the day, but starts getting cool at night. Overall, loved the dress and so glad I finally pulled the trigger on Rent The Runway.

Trouble with fit
This dress is completely open in the back, and the silicone strap across the bottom kept rolling so that it wouldn't lay flat. Cut of the front was such that as a C cup it was too big.

Great pop of color for a summer gala.
The dress fit well and the colors are beautiful in person. Size 4L allowed for a slight train with 4" heels. I would definitely recommend this gown for a Spring/Summer event. #Formal #Gala

The color was amazing.
Fit nicely except the bust area. I wear a 34DD and it was a little loose. With an open back I ended up wear sticky boobs to fill up the extra space.

Fun wedding with friends!
A very fun dress to wear, very flattering, and I got a lot of compliments. I wore the 10R and the waist fit perfectly but the top was a little big because of the criss cross straps in the back. I was in the dress for over 12 hours and didn't get uncomfortable until about Hour 8! I am 5'7" and wore 3 inch heels and the dress was the tiniest bit too short, but I was the only person that noticed. Overall great dress and I would wear it again.

The color is gorgeous!
I wore this dress to a formal wedding. I received numerous compliments on it. It was comfortable, although the tight part around the waist part (yes, this part fits very snugly) was rather itchy for some reason. The length was fine for me. I ordered the 6L and the 6R but ended up wearing the 6R as it hit right at the place I wanted it to. I was wearing 4.5 inch heels and the 6R was perfect. The reason for giving it only 4 stars was due to the zipper. It was almost impossible to get up on my own. So leave yourself extra time when getting ready because you'll need it to fight with the zipper. Have patience and pull HARD and it'll move. I was seconds away from rubbing candle wax on the zipper to see if that helped. Otherwise, it's a great dress, loved the pockets and it hid my full tummy after eating waaaay too many desserts!

The back length was slightly too long for my height (5'1'') even with 4inch heels, but it was still manageable.

Unfortunately it was too long for me.
The fabric and print, as well as the cut of the dress are fabulous. Super comfortable to wear. Unfortunately didn't get to wear it because the back hem was too long for me. Would have been fine for an indoors gala.

Gorgeous..... Broken zipper.
The material is thick and satin-like. The color and pattern is truly orchid. The skirt is a nice A-line, very flattering. This dress actually fit me well and was beautiful on my short pear-shaped stature. I was so disappointed that I could not wear it due to a faulty zipper that was starting to come apart from the inner seams. I returned it at my local RTR and the sales lady gave me store credit.

Pretty dress, just not the right fit
I'm 5'4", usually a size 4. Ordered this dress and it was a size too big. Loved the look and color for a formal wedding, too bad I had to end up returning it.

An Enchanting Dress
This dress arrived as a replacement, and it was gorgeous in person. Once I put it on, I literally floated down the hallway. The colors and pattern were bold and punchy. I wore the dress to my exhibition's opening reception and dinner, and I received compliments from everyone. With 4-inch heels, the back hem just barely lifted off the floor, so there was no trailing and no tripping on the hem. I was comfortable all night standing, sitting, and walking in this dress. I did not have to wear a bra, especially since the top part was a tad too big for my bust size, but no matter, since the heavier fabric allowed the top to keep its shape even without the bra. I love this dress!

Aloha Vegas
I had a huge fortune 100 corporate event in vegas. I wanted to stand out in a good way. Being from Hawaii the orchid print could not be more perfect. I went up a size to be safe and am glad I did. The dress fit perfectly.

Fit like a glove
Definitely tight through the rib cage, but the zipper is tough too get up and down even when it was on the hanger. Once you get it on though...its a dream. Pockets and a little pouf just below the waist too cover up any problem areas you might have. I got so many compliments. First time renter with rent the runway, but definitely will not be my last!!

Perfect for residency graduation
I rented this dress to celebrate completing 4 years of ob/gyn training. It ran true to size, was very comfortable, and the length was perfect with a small heel. I received SO MANY compliments, and felt gorgeous all night. I used sticky-cups due to the cut in the back, but the front of the dress is also forgiving and I had no issues. Highly recommend!

This dress and its pockets!
I loved this dress! Received so many compliments on it, and the pockets were definitely the best part. The dress fit me true to size, however the straps on the back were a bit loose but I could not have worn a smaller size as the waist fits comfortably snug. I love the high-low aspect of the dress. If you are 5'3" like myself heels are a necessity. Would absolutely rent again!

Super chic and colorful!!
Loved this dress for a spring wedding!! It was super flowy and light, making it fun to dance in all night! No stretch at all and fits very snug if you have a larger rib/bust area. One size up fit more comfortably. At 5'2", it did not show the subtle hi-lo style, but was still gorgeous as ever! I received compliments all night.

For my height the long size was way too long but otherwise a beautiful dress!
I didn't end up wearing this dress to the event I ordered it for, mostly because the long length was way too long for me! I was unsure what length to order based on other reviews, but should have gotten the regular. Overall, a beautiful dress and really well made, although the back is not very strapless bra friendly, so if that's important you may want a different style.

BEST DRESS EVER!
This is my second time renting a dress, and this time I wore it to a formal gala affair we had in Times Sqaure, NY for which I was the host. I was complimented throughout the whole night, and I am sooooo glad I wore this. Normally, I rent 4petite but since I wore 4in heels, I went with the regular for longer length. The front of the dress was perfect because it allowed me to walk and there was no way to trip. Zippers on the side were a bit tricky but other than that, this dress was a dream - and it has pockets!!!!!!!!

I didn't end up wearing this dress.
This dress is to die for! I literally gasped when I took it out of its packaging. But this dress is very short in the torso. I couldn't wear it for that reason. However, if you have a regular or short torso, this dress would work for you!
