Runs small but stunning gown
I felt like a real-life chic version of Belle from Beauty and the Beast while in this gorgeous dress. I rented it for my engagement shoot and it did NOT disappoint. The color photographs beautifully and although it was strapless I did not feel uncomfortable in the slightest (as I normally do!). Five stars for a perfect dress.

Felt very pretty and comfortable.
This dress was great for a fall wedding. I was pregnant with my second child at the time and needed something with a little more room in the waist. We hadn't announced the pregnancy yet and this dress did the job by concealing it while still allowing me to look good. Would wear this dress again! The color was amazing.

Great dress
I️ loved this dress, would definitely rent it again (there are other colors). This was my first RTR dress ever and since this picture, I️ have rented two others. I️ felt the dress fit perfectly. It didn't fall down, you can move/dance/eat in it. The color stands out, I️ wore it for a summer Bat Mitzvah. The pockets were a huge plus, wish every dress had them!

Perfect Tea Party Dress
Got tons of compliments on the dress. Beautiful sunny yellow color. Has a built in bra that helped hold the girls up! The fabric required a little steaming upon arrival but Fabulous rental. The high low cut is so flattering and fun!!

Gorgeous dress - like Belle from Beauty and the Beast!
This dress was perfect for a black tie wedding. The color is fun and vibrant, and it really pops in a sea of black at a black tie event. It has a princess quality - I was getting complimented that I looked like Belle from Beauty and the Beast. The fit was perfect - the 2 was slightly tight on me, so I went with the 4, which was great. I'd definitely recommend sizing up for your back up size. For a petite woman (I'm 5'1"), I loved that this dress made me feel like I was wearing a floor-length gown, but without hemming concerns. This is a beautiful dress that is great for a formal event - have fun in it!

Exceeded every expectation that I had, would recommend to anyone and everyone!
I was so hesitant to do Rent the Runway, but everything worked seamlessly. My delivery was timely and the return was easier than I even imagined! As far as this dress goes, it was a little wrinkly when it first arrived, but the wrinkles shook out after hanging it up overnight. For being a strapless dress, it stayed up great! The color was rich and beautiful. Oh, and it has POCKETS! The pockets fit my phone and my wallet perfectly. I love this dress so much and wish I had a practical excuse to buy it forever.. but renting it was just fine, 10/10 recommend, I loved it!

Belle Bridal Shower Dress
This did run a little small, so I had to go with the bigger size I ordered. However, I got so many compliments and comments on my dress! It was absolutely perfect for the event. My shower was Beauty and the Beast themed. The dress is truly Belle yellow!

Beautiful but so small!
I have a pear shape and can usually fit into a 4 or 6 for any fit and flare. Was so sad that I couldn't squeeze into this! The bust area was super small. Beautiful color and totally well made though. Maybe next time I'll size up!

Most uncomfortable dress ever
The boning on the inside of the dress was absolutely unbearable. I wore the dress for approximately 45 minutes and had to banish it back to the bag. Fabric was absolutely unbelievably exquisite and thick. Color is like sunshine.

Everyone loved the dress, including me! I felt so pretty and confident in it.
Glad I ordered the 4 - it was a little more snug up top than the 6 so I wasn't pulling it up at all the whole night!

Great look, little snug in the bust but comfy space for food below. Tough to see the fabric in the photos, but in real life it was beautiful and rich but not heavy/wintery.

My first rental did NOT let me down!!
This dress was fantastic!! Exactly as described. It's a little tight in the bust, but the boning gave it structure and it wasn't falling down all night. The high low hem and the texture really added to the dress. And, the pockets were an added bonus big enough for my phone!!

It fit really well - I went braless and didn't feel like the dress slipped through a night of dancing. Plus pockets!!!! Absolutely love this.

Received so many compliments on my dress and hairstyle- which had an awesome braid on the side.
Absolutely love this dress! A little tight in the bust- so needed a tiny bit of assistance with zipping it up. But afterwards - I felt gorgeous. I wore it to a black-tie wedding and danced the night away.

Comfortable and forgiving
This gorgeous dress will hide any flaws under its thick layers of fabric. I loved the bright yellow and had so much fun dancing in this elegant dress. The fit was a bit too large and I would have preferred a smaller size to hug my chest more snuggly. The other thing is that this fabric is very heavy and not suitable for a hot outdoor wedding - you will over heat!

Dress color was everything!
This dress was amazing! I wore this to an outside September wedding.. I felt like Belle from Beauty and the Beast! It ran a tad small so I ended up wearing the 8R (usually wear a 6R). Got a ton of compliments. The fabric is thicker, elegant, and definitely unique. Would highly recommend!

Chocolates in my pockets!
The dress was super comfortable, easy to walk and dance in. I ordered 6R and 4R as backup. I wish it had petite sizing so that the high part of the dress could hit above my knees, but it looked alright. I could have worn the dress without the bra since it did have a bra within the dress. However, I liked the my own strapless bra over the loose bra within the dress. Even without a bra my girls would have stayed put. I always have a tough time trying to find dresses to fit my bust since I am usually 30DDD - 32DD, but this dress fit my bust and ribcage nicely. It was tight as I needed it to be to pig out and breathe. My fiance had a tough time trying to zip it over the bra but he eventually got it up. The best part of the dress was the pockets! I stashed chocolates in my pockets for snacking. I did accidentally pop the tab at the back where the zipper ends only because I tried to take it off myself instead of having my fiance take it off for me. Since part of the wedding was outdoors, I was sweating a lot since the dress is quite thick and I was under the sun.

Fun color and funky hem
I loved the fabric of this dress (very sturdy). It was definitely a bit snug -happy to take off at end of night - yet the extra size up was too big. Probably best if you don't have a large rib cage... That said I still loved the dress and would rent similar style again.

This was one of the most beautiful dresses I've ever worn. The color and material were both gorgeous. The dress is very feminine and gives you great shape. It's impossible not to feel pretty in this one!

It was very snug up top. I was a little worried it wouldn't zip but made it work and it certainly sucked me in. The material and color were beautiful.

Beautiful dress, Amazing fit!
I absolutely loved this dress! Although I have a small bust, I had no issue with the dress slipping throughout the evening even with dancing. I didn't wear a bra at all. The fabric of the dress has nice weight to it, making if more formal. The high low hemline is elegant on this dress and made worrying about heel height unnecessary! I got many compliments, many of which said I looked like Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

Beautiful bridesmaid dress, but runs small.
The dress runs small and is difficult to zip. Highly suggest undergarments for a more slimming look. Dress can become uncomfortable as the day goes on, but photographs great. Super cute dress, pockets a plus!

Beautiful yellow dress!
The fit couldn't have been more perfect! The length was perfect! I wore it with pearl stud earrings, gold and single pearl necklace and a ring and that was enough with this showstopper! The only con for me was that the boob area was a little big so I just wore sticky boobs and it was perfect!

Disney Princess Style
Don't let anyone tell you this dress is less than perfect. I rented this for a "black tie optional" wedding and felt amazing all night. I typically have bad luck with strapless dresses as I have considerable boobs (34DD) but this dress fit like a comfortable glove and played to all of my strengths. My partner wishes I would buy this dress outright!

I got called a "modern day Belle" from Beauty and the Beast and a little girl thought I was a princess. Great dress, great color. Very well made and has internal corset. Would absolutely rent again.

Made me feel like the BELLE of the ball. A nod to Beauty and the Beast.
I wore this to a wedding that was a themed wedding - Disney Bounding. I wanted to not wear a costume but a wear a dress or gown that paid homage to the theme. I've been eyeing this dress forever and wasn't sure how the golden yellow was going to look against my skin and I am glad to know that my fears were all for nothing. The shade of yellow was perfect for me. I ended up wearing 6R instead of 4R since it tends to run small. Would definitely rent this dress again.

I loved this dress! Super thick material and very comfortable. I should have worn the smaller size (4), but I accidentally only packed the 6 for an out of town wedding. I had to pull it up a lot, but it fit fine everywhere else.

Super flattering and comfortable
LOVED this dress, you definitely need someone to zip the back for you as the zipper gets stuck at the seam but once I had someone do it it went right up. Live the waistline, I felt like it was really flattering. I also loved that I could go braless. Dress was comfortable and easy to move around in.

Beautiful black tie wedding!
I loved this dress...once I was able to get the right size. It runs very small, especially through the bodice as it's corsetted. I usually wear an 8R, and, based on other reviews, went up to a 10R. I still could not get it zipped over my post-baby ribcage. Fortunately, RTR was able to overnight me a 12R which fit great. I loved the pockets, and it was such a fun color. Great to stand out in a sea of black dresses. I wore it to a formal wedding, and I definitely felt dressed appropriately. Great dress, wish it was mine forever!

Belle!
I received so many compliments and felt amazing in this dress. It was a little awkward in the bust- there was so odd puckering in the fabric that looked a bit odd in the wrong angle. I was able to dance and jump around at the reception with not issue of it falling down. Loved the pockets!!!! The fabric is excellent quality even after being worn to probably many weddings this season ;)! It's a true winner and stunning!!!!
