Complements from a lot of people!!

Fits perfect but really low in the back so a little tricky if you have a big bust.

I could barely take a step without receiving a compliment!

Unfortunately this is the only pic I got of the full dress- the party was that fun! I stood out from all of the black cocktail dresses. I received countless compliments and felt amazing. It's true to size at the waist and then gets very poofy- which was nice for me bc my stomach is my worst area. Comfortable and gorgeous!

Beautiful Dress - Perfect for Formal Event (Only full length picture taken)

Absolutely loved this dress! It fits true to size - it was slightly big in my shoulders but I am petite and I thought the length was great! Love the detail and the bright color. I just wore cups since the back has a deep V but overall it was the perfect dress. I wish I could keep it! Also, Rent the Runway has outstanding customer service. My original shipment of this dress was delayed from a snow storm and when I called they were extremely understanding and overnighted me the same dress free of charge. I highly recommend this site and plan to use it in the future!

Classy and glamorous!

Normally I take a 6/8 in dresses, but I read the reviews for the black version of this dress that stated that the chest portion ran very small. I'm very chesty (36 DD+) so I ordered an 8 and a 10. Couldn't breath in the 8, so I went with the 10, though even with that one I had to forego a bra in order to be comfortable in the chest. In the 10, I still had an inch or two of room in the waist, but the dress is well-made and fell beautifully so it wasn't noticeable. The length is sort of high-low and flares at the hips. There isn't a petticoat, but the fabric of the skirt portion has some stiffness to it so it retains it shape even after dancing etc. I loved this dress and would rent it again in a heartbeat. Do be aware that the back is a bit low so you may have trouble wearing a normal bra, but going bra-less is easy because the sequins on the bodice obscure any nipple action.

Is this dress more pink or red? In some pictures it looks more red but in yours it looks more like a hot pink

Loved this dress! Was perfect for a New Orleans wedding.

Couldn't wear a regular bra due to the low back but didn't need to. The material was thick and fitted enough to provide support without one. The pockets were fabulous and you'd never notice them if you didn't know they were there. I would absolutely rent this again!!!

So many compliments...

I absolutely love this dress. However, I thought the skirt was going to be a silky material but it was ribbed. The pockets were a bonus since I could store my phone without anyone noticing so I could snap pictures on the dance floor. This dress was only tight in my rib cage but the 10 would have been wayy to big. I highly suggest this dress for a formal event!

The cut. The color. The whole thing... PERFECT!

I got compliments all night from friends and strangers! This dress was so cute and it camouflaged my midsection while showing off my legs. It is a little low in the back, and because I am broad across the front and back I had to go with the bigger size. My only tiny complaint is the sequins scratching up the underside of my arms. But it was a small price to pay for wearing such a gorgeous dress. I wish I owned it!! Thanks for a great experience RTR!

Superb!

Beautiful color. Thick, rich material for skirt with sequin overlay that managed not to feel scratchy. Easy to move in, easy to breathe in. Flattering design and the bell shaped skirt is really fun. Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful color - you will stand out!

This color is beautiful and the dress gets attention! This dress is NOT for girls with long torso's or for tall girls - unless your covering up a baby bump. The fabric change at the waist sat a solid 3 inches above my natural waist and it gave me a pregnant look. The skirt poofs out pretty far - if your pregnant or hiding a bump - this dress is GREAT! The sequins were a lithe uncomfortable under my arms, too. Suffer for beauty! Otherwise, if your trying to look slim - this isn't for you, haha! Everyone at the wedding loved the dress, but it wasn't my favorite rental.

Fun and Flirty

I originally ordered this dress in black but needed to get the back up size in Pink which I was nervous that the color would be a bit much but I fell in love. The color looks brighter in pictures versus in person and it fit great. Very easy to dance in and can drink/eat whatever you want! My only complaint was that the sequins ended up bothering me under my arms but a small price to pay for a great dress. It was fancy but the color made it more fun and I got a ton of compliments.

Easy to dance in and got lots of compliments!

Perfect fit for me, I have a full chest but narrow ribcage. It was really flattering and did not need a bra, although I did wear stick on cups. The skirt falls away from the body so it is definitely forgiving if you have curves. The cut is pretty conservative but it is trendy and fun so I felt comfortable dancing and I got so many compliments. The only "con" would be the sequins rub a bit under the arms but not something that would stop me from wanting to own it! Seriously wish this was a part of my closet.

Great pick!

Wore this to a wedding, got many compliments. Fit was great, since the bodice is heavily beaded and the skirt is away from the body, you don't have to worry about any rogue fat rolls or cellulite making an appearance. You will need a low back bra as the back comes down too low for a regular bra. I guess you could also go without because you won't see anything, but that is not my style. The dress is a woven fabric so it does not stretch at all so I would definitely be safe and order the size up as your 2nd.

Unexpected love! Not even my backup dress, but it ended up being more than perfect.

First of all, I love RTR! This was my first time and it was a great experience. Originally I ordered two different dresses not knowing if I wanted to wear long or short. A day before my dresses were supposed to arrive my short dress was not going to make it on time, so RTR let me pick another dress to replace it regardless of cost. This was the dress I picked and I couldn't be happier! I received so many compliments, the color (although bright) is really flattering. The beaded top was amazing, it does run small (I got both the 4 and 6, and although I usually wear a 4 I ended up wearing the 6). I did have to get a strapless, backless stick on bra to help "hold up" the dress since the bottom is so stiff and structured. It was very comfortable to wear and great to dance in!

Beautiful, classy dress!

Wore this to my cousin's April wedding in Louisiana and got many compliments. The fit is true to size, and the skirt has lots of room. The back does come down just a touch too low for a regular bra, so I wore a strapless, but the dress had plenty of support so it wasn't a problem for me.

The color was great! Very fancy but still fun.

The dress was difficult to zip up because of the band that is sewn at the waistline. That area of the dress had no flexibility. Definitely a good dress to hide hips or a small pregnant belly. Overall I really liked it!

Belle of the ball in hot pink and pockets to boot!

I got so many compliments on this dress. Loved the pockets for easy access to my phone. I wore a six as I usually do. You can go silver or gold with accessories which is convenient for last minute styling. The sequins under the arms are a bit annoying but if you're on the dance floor with your hands in the air all night-you will quickly forget how scratchy they are. I am pretty flat chested so I went without a bra due to the low back and it was fine. The top is fitted enough to get away with it! Wish I could have kept this dress. Maybe I'll have to rent it in black next time.......

A pop of color to stand out in a sea of black dresses!

I got compliments all night long. It just looks expensive! It fit like a glove. It was a tiny bit irritating with the sequins but not too bad. The color is way more hot pink than I expected but honestly I loved the pink better. The dress was modest and classic but not boring - I really stood out. It was way better in person than I expected! Loved wearing it all night!

Red awesomeness

Rented for a work event and it was perfect. While the back was a v shape and you can't wear a bar it was still a classy dress for work. Super comfortable although by the end of the night the sequins were starting got rub the underarms a bit. I went up a size just because it was more confirmation. The 0 fit but I have hips so it hit a tad weird and made me look bigger, the 2 hit at my hips perfectly. Loved!

Perfect for a Black Tie Optional event!

This dress was so easy to wear and very comfortable. I was concerned that the skirt portion might wrinkle easily, but it was fine. I steamed it after unpacking and it was great all night. The skirt does poof out, but not in a bad way. I posted pics showing the fabric up close, and of the high/low hemline. I wore gold shoes and jewelry. The fabric beneath the lace on top is nude color. I have a short torso and often have problems with too much fabric between the shoulders and waist - this dress was perfect! Might be a problem for someone with a long torso. Received lots of compliments too!

Didn't wear it.

I would have worn a size up because of how tight the back and middle are. Thought the dress is red, but it's pink. Pretty, just not what I was expecting.

I received a ton of compliments on this dress.

Beautiful dress, great color, good material. I'm 5'1, so the dress ran a little long on me, but since I was at a formal event, I thought it looked very classic and tasteful. I didn't have to wear a bra with the dress because of the pattern on top.

Beautiful color and snazzy top!

Loved the fit of this dress. I was a little concerned with how "full" the skirt was, but once I had it on for a while, it was fine. Very comfortable and the pockets are a bonus! True to size. The low back wouldn't allow for a bra but the material on the top is thick enough that one wasn't needed. Highly recommend!!!

Pink Perfection for the Kentucky Oaks

So comfortable and great camouflage for a belly - no need for spanx! Order your regular size - I should have exchanged for a 4 but did not have time and it was tighter around my waist and ribs than I would have preferred. Got compliments all day and felt like a star!

Gorgeous color and great fit

Wore this dress to a black tie fundraiser event at the zoo in New Orleans. It felt great. Has a low back, so normal bra wouldn't work. I probably could've gotten away with no bra at all. It fit true to size. Really accentuates your waist and the full skirt is great for pear shapes like me. Have to admit, I was a little uncomfortable after eating due to the tight waist band, but I honestly expected that. Thanks RTR!! Great experience with my first rental!

I had been eyeing this dress and was so happy to finally wear it

I loved this dress- so much fun to dance in and it has pockets!! The sequins underneath the arms didn't bother me on one side and the other side it was a bit uncomfortable. The high/low in the front/back of the dress was more noticeable in the smaller size but that one was also shorter in the front which made it less comfortable for a wedding.

Fit well, except was very snug around the waist (which was a little uncomfortable after dinner). But otherwise, beautiful dress- I enjoyed wearing it. And I loved the pockets!

This backup dress was perfect!

Pockets were fun, color was beautiful and high-low hem felt young and classy (and floor length gowns were too long). Wore this to a black tie preferred wedding reception and couldn't have been happier. I didn't notice issues with sequins rubbing on arms as others have mentioned. I paired it with earring and bracelet from RTR. I would recommend this and would rent again. Stylist Brenda suggested it and I'm so glad she did. RTR customer service is unbelievable. At 6pm Friday, I called and dresses were in my house at 10am.

Pretty dress, great color

I was a little worried about the cut of this dress being unflattering but it looked great. In the end, I wore my backup dress because I liked it a little better but I would definitely rent this again. The zipper is a little tough, but it's worth a little elbow grease.

Very distinctive dress, very comfortable (can wear normal underwear), compliments all night!

Rented this for a gala I was running, so I was looking for certain criteria. Color had to stand out (nobody can find the woman in the black dress when something goes wrong), had to be comfortable, had to be festive but not too sparkly as I was speaking from a lit stage, and had to have pockets (I can never fit everything I need in a clutch and a purse is impractical). I was a little nervous renting this because it is so different from the things I usually wear, but this dress was perfect for what I needed. The color was appropriate for a spring gala and distinctive so vendors, ticket buyers, and volunteers could all easily find me. The skirt was roomy enough that the dress is incredibly comfortable (and you don't have to squeeze into spanx on a hot night). The pockets were so deep that I could easily fit everything I needed without it being obvious I was carrying anything. It looked great against the velvet curtain from the lit stage. And people loved it. I can't tell you how many compliments I received. It was a fun dress to wear, I would rent it again!

This was my first time using RTR and I love it!!! Excellent customer service & good quality.

True to size, got the best dress after the brides compliments and it was so comfortable, the only thing is that the beading on the top part will scratch your arms if you dance and have as much fun as I did in this dress. I used this dress to go to a wedding and it was perfect! I chose this dress because I wanted to use something elegant but yet not a gown.

I wish I owed this dress!

I got this dress for a wedding during Memorial Day Weekend. After a shoulder injury and a bad New England winter, I have gained about 15 lbs. and was nervous when only the size 8 was available for the date needed. The dress fit well but I would have liked it to be a little less snug around the waist. Had I been my normal size, I would have been between the 6 and the 8. But the bottom was classy and comfortable. Also the pockets were structured so well you couldn't even tell they were there. Other than that, the dress was wonderful! I received so many compliments and stood out from the crowd. My boyfriend even said I was the best dressed guest. If I could purchase this dress, I would. I'll definitely be renting this again!

I felt amazing in the dress. It is flattering and comfortable!

The dress was a tad snug around where the top ended and came in, but that was mainly only when I was sitting. It is very flattering and comfortable. Although, I did have to iron the dress before wearing it because it was very wrinkly when I got it. So I would be prepared for that! I enjoyed the dress and I would've boughten it if I could! It was also much more pink that it looked in the pictures which is a beautiful color pink!

I was unable to wear this :(

I'm usually a size 10 and this certainly ran small which was a shame because it is such a beautiful dress. It looks expensive and would have made me stand out for sure! If you have big breasts, certainly size up!

The top was a little itchy where your armpits hit but not unbearable and over all pretty comfy to wear!
