I've been using RTR for years, and this is hands down my favorite dress to date.
This dress was perfect for a spring wedding — it fit well, made me feel sexy *and* comfortable (although not too sexy, nor too comfortable!), and received compliment after compliment. I could go on and on about it, but I suggest you rent it and let it speak for itself.

I ended up wearing the backup dress as this one was too large
I ordered my typical size and a size up, but should have ordered a size down. Dress runs big in the bust and waist, and because it's a thick fabric, it is not flattering to wear too big. The material is very thick, like upholstery, but I think would be very flattering if it fit well. Color is very bright and has a sheen to it.

The dress was perfect for the garden party themed wedding I attended in Florida in March.
Though it was a bit snug, I rocked the dress all afternoon into the wee hours of the night and I have an admitted very wide back and I was happy for the snug fit with the strapless factor. I'd buy this if I could

Teal in a sea of black
I rented this dress for a charity gala and as expected, most other women were in black. I loved standing out. I have a 4mo old baby so I'm struggling with baby weight in new areas. I found the size 14 to be tight around my waist and loose around my chest. I felt beautiful in this dress and loved the high-low hemline. I paired it with black and silver accessories.

BUILT IN BRA!
Loved this dress. Wore it to Opening Gala of The Pan Am Museum at The Cradle of Aviation Museum. So well constructed, didn't have to pull it up all night. I am between sizes 8-10, depending on the dress. This is cut a bit small, but ample rom for the not-flat-chested. Loved this dress. Perfect Pan Am Blue!

I wore this dress as a Cinderella costume for Halloween, but I would recommend it for any formal event. The color is absolutely stunning - I received compliments all night. It's really comfortable, and pockets!

Beautiful Color & Material
I'm usually a 10/12, but was in a bind on NYE because my original order did not work out. I picked this out at the store because it was the best available option, even in the wrong size. The dress has a built in bra, which is nice. but since I was a few sizes smaller I wore a very padded strapless bra to keep this up and in place. Everyone complimented the color and cut. It is a bit heavy due to the fabric.

The dress was a great fit. Simple but elegant.
I'm 5'2' and the dress was hemmed to fit perfectly. Only issue was my heel would get caught in the hem occasionally. Overall was very happy with the find and stylist who picked it out.

Great color, really popped!
I wore this dress to a Sunday morning wedding for which I was having trouble deciding what to wear. This dress was perfect because it had a great color, had a sturdy fabric and was tailored enough to wear to a really fancy hotel, but with the color and hemline it was casual enough for Sunday morning. This was not my first choice, but after trying on the first choice, this was the best option. I loved the fit and the color. I received a ton of compliments based on the color and the fit. This dress is also really fun to wear. With the longer hemline, and structured fabric you can easily move around, dance etc. and it holds up it's shape. I never felt like I had to stand or sit a certain way. Specifics: The fabric is nice and sturdy, so no shaping garments, necessary. The color is awesome. I am short (5'3") and was wearing a 16, so I used temporary hemming tape to turn up the hem in the front so that it was above-knee like the photo on the website. Because of the uneven hemline it was really easy to do that quick modification without it being obvious. I could have gone without a bra, as it was sturdy enough to stay up. However, it was a bit tight on me in the chest and flattened me out a bit (I'm a 38-D, which you really can't tell from the photo) so I wore a strapless bra to add some shape back.

Beautiful dress and color
Wore this to a wedding, and it was perfect! The color and high low hem really helped it to stand out. The built in bra was enough for me not to need to wear a bra, which was amazing! Would rent this one again. It had a small tear at the back, but it wasn't enough to keep me from wearing (and loving) it.

Great, fun dress that was perfect for a wedding!
This dress was great and fun to wear to a wedding. My only complaint is that the boning in the bodice came down pretty low on me and poked my stomach when I sat (unless I had perfect posture, which I adopted for the evening!). I think that's partially due to me being shorter and this not being a petite size. Otherwise, I really enjoyed wearing the dress and got lots of compliments on it. The pockets were an added bonus. It was my first time using Rent the Runway and overall it was a great experience.

Formal, daytime, Indian ceremony where most guest were in gorgeous, colorful, traditional dress.
This is my first RtR attempt and I was so incredibly pleased. The wedding I was attending was a formal daytime affair and I was nervous about being out of place. The boning in the bodice and built in bra made it possible for me to be comfortable without a bra. The gown was a perfect length and fit like a glove. The shape was very flattering on me and I'm self conscious of my mid-section. I received loads of compliments and my husband even offered to buy it for me. The color is darker than in the photo, but a still beautiful shade.

I rented this for a fundraiser with a "cocktail attire" dress code. The dress fits true to size. You'll feel like a mix between a princess and a party girl :)

I usually have to get a 2 with dresses like this for the fit up top and this was actually quite fitted. Everything fit me really well overall though and I had no troubles keeping it up. Tons of compliments all night!

Built in bra is a great feature - I've never been able to go braless in a dress before. Got a ton of compliments and was able to dance without any concern for the dress slipping. Will definitely rent this again!

I never thought I could wear a strapless dress, especially to a dance-heavy event, but this one has a great built-in bra. Loved the pockets, the length is super fun, and the color is great.

True to size and GORGEOUS.
This dress was definitely true to size - it fit so perfectly that I could even hook the inside corset and zip it up without any assistance. The color is stunning and the cut is VERY flattering for an athletic/hourglass shape. The top portion of the dress is structured and, unlike some strapless dresses with weight (the fabric is NOT light and flowey), I never once felt the need to adjust/pull it up. I wore it to an evening cocktail/formal wedding at an aquarium and received compliment after compliment from other guests, event staff and complete strangers all night about the dress. It made me feel extremely confident and honestly, I wish I didn't have to return it!! It's a TRULY amazing dress and if you are considering renting it, DO IT!

Really bright, cheerful color! Very fun to wear!
I actually had a different dress reserved for this event, but the dress was returned damaged and a stylist chose this one for me instead. I'm 20 weeks pregnant and my chest is currently a DD, so I was nervous about the fit. However, this dress ended up totally working! There was plenty of room for my hips and belly and the bodice did fit my chest (despite the description saying best for A-C cups). However, it was tight enough that I didn't end up wearing a bra. I also loved that the dress had pockets! The color was great - really bright and fun for a party!

Felt Like a Model!
I wore this to a traditional Hindu wedding, where I knew I was going to be surrounded by women wearing lovely, colorful, "blinged-out" saris and I didn't want to blend into the background. This dress fit the bill exactly. The color, fabric and texture were substantial and gorgeous. I received so many compliments and felt like a million bucks all night. Bodice was tight and did not stretch, but was not uncomfortable at all. Hugely recommend this one, ladies, you won't regret it!

Great dress
Loved this dress! I had many compliments on it all night. The pockets were amazing and big enough to where I did not need to carry a purse. Did not need a bra as there is one built in. Dress ran very small. I am always a size 6 but got the size 8 as my second choice and the 8 fit perfectly. The dress did come a day late which was inconvenient due to the out of town wedding I was attending.

Felt like a princess!
Wore this dress for my bday lunch which turned into a fashion week party which I crashed and totally fit in with this dress. The top is tight with a built in bra/corset but the skirt is forgiving. I'm on the short side so you will need high heels not to drag the back of this dress and it is heavy for summer weather but beautiful!

Princess dress!
I felt like a princess in this dress! The color and fabric detail are so pretty. The bodice was pretty tight, especially for big-busted girls, but I think the tight fit is somewhat necessary to make sure the dress stays up all night. The dress has pockets, which was convenient. I got lots of compliments all night long!

Dress was fantastic.
Fit pretty true to size and I ended up taking my bra off because I didn't really need it. Only down side is the lining in the dress rubbed my back and was a little uncomfortable but it didn't stop me for dancing the night away!

Love this dress! So beautiful!
The dress is so perfect for so many reasons! The fit is perfect (I'm a size 4 and 5'8"), the color is beautiful and vibrant (the blue is brighter in real life than in my picture), and the shape is super flattering. This was actually a backup dress that I picked up from the store in Chicago because my original dress didn't work out. I'm so glad my first choice didn't work out because I love this dress! The entire RTR experience was very easy and positive, I definitely plan to rent again in the future.

I loved this drew. It was great for a formal wedding. Plus the dress has pockets.
The top ran a little small in the chest, so I had to wear a size bigger than I normally do. But I loved the dress and felt beautiful in it.

Beautiful shade of blue
This dress definitely stands out- the color is super vibrant, but not at all in a tacky neon way. I am 5'3", and with heels this was inches away from touching the ground in the back on me...I actually prefer the longer look so it worked. I am petite up top with a small rib-cage, and with a strapless bra I had no issues keeping the dress up- which is rare for me regarding strapless dresses. The pockets are a game changer. This is the second time I've rented this style. I rented the red version before and they are consistent.

This was my first RTR experience. I cannot wait for my next one. The built in bra provided excellent support. The color was perfect for the August evening wedding. Fit was perfect. The pockets were a pleasant surprise. Definitely worth a rental.

I got so many compliments on this dress and it had pockets so I didn't need to carry a clutch!
This dress was actually a last minute replacement when the dress I ordered came with a rip in it. Thanks to the girls in the Chicago store who helped me scour the place for a replacement! It was definitely comfortable, I love the pockets, and above all for someone as busty as me (34DDD), I felt secure in the dress. I did not have to spend the night tugging on the dress because it of it falling down or sagging. It stayed put- a miracle! Also at 5'10" I usually have to worry about the length on things, but this dress fell at a good spot, not too short in the front. I got so many compliments on this dress and the material had enough weight to it that I did not have to worry about it flying all over the place in the Chicago wind. Definitely glad I wore this!

A stand-out dress that may not be for smaller chested women.
This is really a fun and vibrant dress, which I imagine would be really fun to dance in. I didn't end up wearing it for two reasons: the color in person was a bit too bright teal for my taste (much brighter than in pictures), and the boning in the bodice looked strange on me. The boning was a bit twisted, and I definitely didn't fill out the bodice though the internal bra did hold up the dress nicely. This dress would be much nicer for size B cup or larger.

Color and comfort!
This pic is me just trying it on... Looks much more elegant with hair, earrings, and shoes :) it was v comfortable once zipped up, but had to hold by breathe to do so! Once on though it felt good. Stayed up no problem and didnt create any armpit fat (which I usually have and hate with strapless dresses). Pockets! A definite hit :)
