LOVE LOVE LOVE
I want to own this dress! The color is gorgeous--a vibrant blue! Received many compliments through the night! My only complaint is that the sleeves are a little snug but not to the point that I was uncomfortable.

Wasn't bulky, fit as expected, the pocket component was an extra bonus not having to carry around a purse.

My Bridal Shower!
Beautiful color! Beautiful fit! I took a picture of this next to my backup "On Cloud 9" dress so that you could see the color comparison! The arms will feel tight but they get looser as you wear it. It is also a heavy dress. I was SO hot.

Great dress for a winter networking event!
The dress is lined with silk so it kept me warm walking in the Philadelphia streets in March. The 8 fit but I ended up wearing the 10 to give myself a bit more length for a graduate school networking event. Overall great dress and comfortable!

very comfy dress!
I wore this dress to a wedding that had a conservative dress code-very modest but also very pretty! Other comments talked about the sleeves being too tight-I personally don't have very toned arms and I thought it was snug, but not uncomfortable at all. I'm 5'0 and 34D and the dress was perfect over my chest area and slightly covered the knees with 2 inch heels. Would recommend for a spring event!

Gorgeous dress, but snug in the shoulders.
I rented this dress to wear to my best friend's bridal shower, for which I am a bridesmaid. I was so excited about the dress. It's so pretty and seemed it would fit my body perfectly. I did read the reviews about the sleeves being tight, so I sized up. When I put the larger size on, the sleeves were still snug (I could not lift my arms up) and because I am a larger chester woman the shoulders were snug as well. The rest of the dress however, did fit beautifully. The only other thing I saw was that the size 12 was the shade of blue in the photo and the size 14 was more a royal blue color. I was so sad to have to return the dress. I would have opted for an overnighted increase in size, but I am leaving tomorrow for a birthday celebration and there would not be enough time. Overall I was very satisfied with how RTR handled everything and I will certainly be renting from them again, just maybe I will choose an arrival date that allows me time for an exchange if I need it.

A great dress for our couples' wedding shower!
This is a well-made dress! The lining is great, but might make this dress too warm during July/August, however it was perfect for a cool spring evening. Overall, it fit well; I went with the 10 to give my arms a bit more room in the sleeves.

Great dress, may be too long for short women
I wore this for a winter rehearsal dinner. It's a great dress, loved the color. I have a small frame and usually wear petite. The 0 was a good fit. The only issue I'll point out is that at 4'11' the dress was much longer on me than in the pictures, came to below my knee. I still wore it and received compliments.

Great dress, tight sleeves
This dress is so pretty, I wish I could keep it. The 6 was snug in the arms, and I couldn't lift my arms over my shoulders, but I wasn't at a wedding/dancing so it wasn't a big deal. I also tried the 8, and it was looser but very unflattering. Somehow the pockets laid much differently and made my hips look bigger in the 8. Not only did this dress have pockets (!!!!), but my phone fit in the pockets and was completely hidden by the lace all night!

So comfortable and easy to wear!
Usually I would've worn a 16, but there weren't any available for the day I needed. The 18 was a little loose, but not so much that it looked messy. Very comfortable for long term wear, and the lace, which is sometimes hard to maintain, was in good quality. Got a ton of compliments!

I rented this for my son's first communion but ended up wearing my other rental instead as I felt this was too fancy for that event. But I loved this dress and would rent again the future for a wedding or more formal event.

The fit was amazing! Except for the arms....
I got the dress in a 12, my true size, and a 14. The dress fit will around my bust and waist. The problem was with the arms. Since there is a non-stretch fabric in the arms to create the "nude effect" under the lace, it had no stretch. I couldn't raise my arms above shoulder level without feeling like I might tear the dress. I was in love with the color and the fit everywhere else, but the arms were highly uncomfortable. I feel that if I would have gone up a size that the arms would have fit, but the rest of the dress would have seemed oddly large. :(

Love this dress!
I loved everything about this dress, color was perfect and it fit great, just a little delicate with the lacing part, the size 18 dress had a little tear in the lace near the zipper so I went with the next size up dress so I wouldn't do anymore damage!

So comfortable and loved the pockets! I would've worn the 8, but decided to wear the 10 because the arms on the 8 were a little too tight and I liked the extra room. So many compliments!

I wore this to a bridal shower. Paired it with nude heels and a white chunky necklace.
I wore the 4, the fit over all was good, the arms were a little tight but not terrible, I likely would have worn the 6 instead, but the color was much duller than the 4 and I LOVED the color of the 4! The length was good and it was comfortable once I got over the tightness in the arms. Overall, I loved this dress and would definitely rent it again!

This was a perfect dress to wear for an early fall wedding on Cape Cod.
Like many other reviewers noted, the sleeves of this dress are strangely tight/constricting. Having the backup size definitely helped alleviate that. I loved the color, the style, and most especially, the pockets. I received many compliments at the wedding I attended and would highly recommend renting this dress!

This dress was fabulous in every way!
Pros: Pockets!! Beautiful color, forgiving in the hips. Received compliments all night. Both the 4 and 6 fit, but I sized up for ease of movement and wedding party dancing. My husband didn't want me to send it back. Would definitely order again. Cons: The 4 seemed much less worn than the 6. The 4 was fresh both in it's bright blue color and overall quality of the stitching (inside and out). The 6 had ripped stitches in the silk lining of the arms but it didn't impact the fit or my night.

Super comfortable yet pretty dress.
As others stated, the smaller size fit my waist, but the arms and shoulders were too tight in the smaller size. I have broad shoulders and larger arms, and the dress has no stretch. I received many compliments! I love the tutu like layer between the gold underlay and the blue lace...gave this dress a fun swing! The blue color was stunning. I wore nude peep toe sling backs and gold jewelry. If you've a broad shouldered athletic frame, size up.

Sleeves run TIGHT
This was a great, very comfortable dress however others were NOT kidding when they said the sleeves are super tight. I ordered a 12 and 14 because of the sleeve reviews, the 12 had a rip on the lining right where the sleeve meets the shoulder- obviously someone else thought they were tight too. Wore the 12 because the rest of the dress fit great, even a little loose but I couldn't raise my arms above my head BONUS: it has pockets!

Absolutely loved it! Received so many compliments!
If you are between sizes go up! The 6 would have fit but the arms were a little too tight, so I went up to the 8 for comfort. The cut and pockets did make me look a bit hippy, but I had a blast twirling around in it and received so many compliments!

The sleeves are tight.
Rented this dress for a holiday party. The color is amazing and the lining is actually more of a gold color. It's very pretty. The shape is flattering and it has pockets. I had to size up because the sleeves of the dress were so tight. The lace doesn't have any stretch. However, once I squeezed my arms in I was perfectly comfortable all night. I received lots of compliments. Good rental but I won't rent this dress again.

So pretty!!! Will almost definitely rent again!
I wore this to a rehearsal dinner, and I loved it! It's a very versatile dress -- I wasn't sure how dressy the attire would be, so I tried it on with multiple pairs of shoes, and it looked pretty good with all of them! It looked really nice with nude heels, but I ended up going with a tan ankle boot that dressed it down a little, and I got a lot of compliments. I'm a pretty true size 4, but when I go for a different size it's normally a 2, so I went against RTR's stylist advice and chose the 2 as my backup. I won't be doing that again! As soon as I pulled out the dresses, they seemed smaller than usual, so I tried on the 4, and it was pretty tight. I didn't even try the 2, and I definitely would have worn the 6 if I'd had it. The areas where it ran small were the arms, shoulder, and torso (thankfully the hips and thighs weren't an issue since it floats away there). I have a larger bust, so the dress was borderline uncomfortably tight around my rib cage. My arms aren't normally a fit issue, but the sleeves were really tight too. But I still had a great time in the dress, and I don't think anyone but me noticed the dress was a little tight. I would definitely rent this again in a larger size! I would even buy it if it goes on sale, because it's one of those dresses that would work for almost any event -- it's fun, pretty, and classy!

Classy & a Beautiful shade of blue
I wore this dress for my engagement pictures and I couldn't have been more pleased with how my pictures turned out in this dress. The blue really looked beautiful with our venue background. The dress fit perfectly. I am only 5'1 and a petite figure so the dress came a little longer on me than on the model, but I loved where it fell and thought it looked great! This was my first time renting from rent the run way and after this experience, I was hooked.
