This is a beautiful dress, but looked better in the picture than on me.
I wore this dress for a date night. I felt like a million bucks in it, and still think it's a gorgeous dress. But, it just didn't fit me very well. I'm 5'2", about 100 lbs and flat chested. This dress has boning/shape to the bust, and it was a little awkward on my small/flat frame. This is not an uncommon problem, though, so I don't blame the dress. The inner shell is soft and comfortable, the outer layer (green) is less smooth. Great length and shape otherwise.

Family wedding
Love this dress! I wore it for an outdoor Florida wedding in the late-winter. It was the perfect weight for the time of year but would not be good for an outdoor event in the heat. It is lined and high-quality but also very heavy because of that. Runs true to size and got many compliments on it. If I could buy this dress, I would!

Stylist Review
This dress is vibrant and comfortable! The lace was elegant and made me feel beautiful. I have a smaller bust and it was a bit big on me, but the waist fit comfortably. I usually don't like dresses with longer sleeves, but I felt like I could breathe in this dress and did not mind! Paired with a belt or cute earrings, this dress is a show stopper!

I actually didn't end up wearing this dress. I got 2 others that were better suited for my weekend.
The skirt is much bouncier/fluffier than I thought it would be. I only tried the dress on and wore it in my house for a few minutes and it was WARM. The wedding I was going to was outdoors and I figured this dress would just be too hot to wear. Definitely more suited for colder months but would definitely rent again, even for a fancy date night!

Cute dress but bunchy hips
The dress was a beautiful color and fit very well on top. The sleeves are beautiful and weren't too tight for me. Comfortable. The only thing I didn't love about it was that the pockets made the hips bunch out in a sort of unflattering way I thought. Otherwise beautiful!!

Very comfortable/ beautiful fit.
I received a lot of compliments with this dress. The fit is very comfortable yet elegant. The color is beautiful! I am 5'5 115lbs and the size 4 fit perfectly. I am thin and the sleeves fit perfectly so I can see how women with bigger arms see this as a con.

The dress was extremely comfortable and I got tons of compliments.
I normally would order a 4 and 6 but after reading the reviews I decided on a 6 and 8 and I'm glad I did. I have bigger arms and the dress is a little tight around the arms so the 8 worked perfectly. The pockets were my favorite part :)

Great dress, easy fit, has pockets!!
I wore the 14, it fit a very *tiny* bit big, but not noticeably. Well constructed with many layers, I chose it because I assumed the wedding we attended (on 6/11/16) would be indoors and A/C would be cold. BUT NO. It was all outside, so I was BAKING in this dress - however, that is not the dresses fault, it really is lovely. I got lots of compliments on it, and felt gorgeous. Length is great, goes well with a neutral shoe, and you can accessorize several ways. I also expected the sleeves to be too wide or too tight, but they were good, too. Well made, for sure.

The color is more teal than green. If you have a tummy problem area it is very understanding and makes you feel slim.

Perfect rehearsal dinner dress
This dress fit like a glove. I put it on and didn't want to take it off. It was flattering, had pockets, and was a unique color. It is pretty heavy, so I wouldn't wear it when it's hot out. It's perfect every other season though.

Flattering fit
I usually struggle with finding dresses for my shorter apple shaped body, but this one fit me in all of the right places. The satin bodice is very stretchy and forgiving for someone who is a bit "soft" in the midsection. I think this dress is one of those that could work for all body types. I loved the pockets too!

Great color and nice material. The lace did have some picking but that is to be expected. It felt a little tight in the arms and it was shorter than I was expecting but overall a great find.

Perfect choice for an early evening wedding
This was my first RTR experience so at first I was worried about issues with fit, but it was all in my head! The 16 was a perfect! Dress was comfortable, looked cute with flats and heels... and had pockets!! Who doesn't love pockets!

Fantastic dress! It was fun to dance in and I got a lot of compliments on it.
Fits true to size. Great lining. I'm tall but the way it fell I didn't have to worry about it flying up when I was dancing. All in all I loved this dress and might rent it again for another wedding.

Fit like a glove and the color really pops.
Such a fun dress. Comfy. The quality and detail was all there. My only minor issue - the dress wasn't the most flattering in the mid-region - at times the material could appear bulky around the tummy area. Overall, terrific experience and very satisfied.

Felt beautiful
I needed a dress to wear to my boss's wedding, where three other senior executives from my department would be in attendance, so I needed something relatively conservative. This dress was perfect: neither my chest nor my rear were hanging out, yet it was cute and fun. I normally wear size 6 in dresses but size 8 in pants because I have bigger hips. I am also relatively tall at 5' 9". I ordered both the 6 and the 8, and while the 6 fit everywhere, it was about an inch shorter than the 8, and since I wanted the extra length because of the nature of the event, I went with the 8, which also fit well and wasn't too loose. I was worried about what other reviewers said about the arms because I have fat upper arms, but I had zero problems. It's true that this dress is hot, it was a 50 degree day so I was fine until we started dancing, when I got super sweaty. I would not wear this for a summer wedding, but it would be perfect for all other seasons. I paired it with hot pink heels and gold earrings. I loved this dress and felt comfortable and beautiful!

Perfect Derby Party Dress
I received tons of compliments on this gorgeous dress. The color is bright and perfect for spring. There is a gold-ish underlay. The skirt twirls! The shoulders were slightly too big but everything else was great!

So many compliments! I felt elegant and beautiful!
The fit was true to size. I got so many compliments throughout the night and it was very comfortable. My only gripe would be is that the color is more teal and less green than it appeared in the pictures online. Overall, loved my first RTR experience!

Gorgeous dress! Runs a little small
I wore this to my mom's 60th birthday party and everyone loved it! It was my first time renting and now I'm hooked, lol. I usually wear a size 6 but the 8 fit better. The sleeves were a little tight and I'm not a big gal, so keep that in mind when choosing your size. I loved this dress so much that I rented the white version for my wedding rehearsal. It was a big hit there, too.

Cute but tight in the arms
Didn't end up wearing this dress, but overall it was a nice fit. The arms were snug, the only complaint I had. My fiancé didn't like the color, but it's really cute in person. Dress it up for a party or wear it to work. Very versatile.

I didn't like the way the nude looked through the lace.
The dress was very full from the silky lining underneath which was nice, but makes you look heavier on the bottom half. I didn't like the way the lace looked in real life either. Decided not to wear it.

Great fit, tight arms
This dress was gorgeous and I got several compliments. The fabric felt lovely and the lining was very smooth satin. The arms were a little tight, and I wasn't able to lift my arms too high, but overall, it was a beautiful dress and I would rent it again.

My first RTR!
I loved the fit, the ease of receiving/shipping, and the feeling of wearing something higher quality than I ever had before! I wore the dress to the symphony for my friend's birthday. It was perfect. I received so many compliments. It was a very striking dress - even more so in person than in the pictures.

POCKETS!
What a great dress. I wore this for a fall day wedding and got so many compliments. The color is gorgeous - definitely sticks out. It was a good dress for dancing in - and comfortable to wear all night! It even ran a bit bigger than I expected - lots of room and the pockets are the BEST.

Great for a Chilly Day!
I wore this for my friend's early April bridal shower. The dress fit great! I loved the way it flared out. The pockets on the dress were super helpful too. I was leery about ordering this dress because high neck shirts/dresses tend to make your chest look bigger than it already is, but I was very happy with the way it looked on my chest. Order it!

Words seriously cannot describe how much I am in love with this dress. This was my first rental from Rent The Runway.. I rented it for engagement pictures and was just in love with it. I actually tried to find a way online to buy this dress because I was almost willing to spend the retail price to get it. Beware- this dress is that fabulous :)

Wasn't able to wear this one
My main criticism is the sleeve. It is tight despite the stretchy lining material. I would say that I have just an average size arm, and the sleeve of the 6 was tight on me. I'm not sure if I would've been able to tolerate it. I wasn't able to wear this due to an odor on the dress. RTR took care of all of that, though!

This dress is beautiful and conservative without looking like a "mom dress". I wore it to Easter services at church. It is very fitted in the chest area. I enjoyed wearing this dress!

Great fit, really comfortable and flattering.
I am smaller on top so sometimes have a hard time with dresses like this being too baggy in the chest, but this dress fit perfectly. Pockets were awesome, waist is nice and high so plenty of room in the hips. Good to note - entire dress, even sleeves, are lined with satin, so it's not the best dress for hot weather.
