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.

Unfortunately I did not wear the dress. At the last minute my husband changed the color he was wearing and I changed my dress to match the colors that he wore. But I will be ordering this dress again, I want to wear it!!! It fit perfectly when I tried it on!!!

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!

I LOVE LOVE LOOOOVE THIS DRESS!!!
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!

Perfect dress for Easter Sunday!
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.

The fit works well for shorter waisted. Gives a wonderful hourglass figure.

The color was amazing. It was such a fun and comfortable dress to dance in all night
It was tight in the sleeves, like mentioned but I still found the 14 better looking on than the 16. It does have a thick lining and I thought it might be too warm for an outdoor wedding but it was perfect.

Loved this dress! So comfortable and loved the pockets! The dress runs small in the arms, I usually wear size 10 but had to size up for it to fit. Over all great dress for a spring party!

Beautiful teal color!
I wore this dress to my medical school's match day. The dress is very classy and elegant. The picture doesn't do the color of the dress justice! I wore the 4, but the sleeves were a bit tight and the 6 was too loose in the torso.

Beautiful color and dress!
The arms were a tiny bit too tight, but I also had a gap on the chest and neck area. You couldn't really notice it, so it wasn't a huge deal. It is a thicker material, so I got hot dancing, but I got a lot of compliments and the necklace I rented was equally beautiful :)

Gorgeous color, fun, full skirt!
I wore this dress to a work holiday party in AZ with cowboy boots; really fun look but not sexy! The lining is silky & dense which gives the dress structure underneath to hold in the waist; the emerald/jade color is gorgeous and was perfect for the holiday event. The skirt is much fuller than I had anticipated which lends to the flirty feel.

Not the best for curvy body types
Beautiful and good quality dress, but it's not ideal for girls with hips, felt a little fat in the dress and instead of accentuating my hips and waist, it made me look large and shapeless.

Got lots of compliments on this dress, it was a very flattering shape and a pretty color in person and who doesnt love a dress with pockets?? The only criticism I might have was that the arms were a little tight on me.

Perfect for an engagement party! Great combo of fun yet classy. Loved having pockets!
I usually wear a size 6, and I rented a 6 and an 8, which I would recommend. The 6 was definitely more snug in the arms. I probably would have worn the 8 if I was going to be somewhere dancing or moving around more, but I was completely comfortable in a 6. The weather was low 60s/mid 50s, and I loved that this dress kept me warm without getting too hot. I got so many compliments too!

beautiful outdoor wedding
I felt this dress was shorter than anticipated and thus chose to wear something else. The model is 5'10 so I thought it would be a little longer on me but I think it fell at the same or shorter length.

It was perfect and well lined for a March Barn Wedding
It was snug in the chest and arm area and a little long. Other then that it was perfect! Wedding started at 4 and went into the night. Temperatures dropped but this dress is well lined and kept me fairly warm!

Color was rad but pockets were a GAME CHANGER!
I won't lie. I definitely had to try this dress on three different times before I was "sold." However, once I had it on and was "all ready" for my awards ceremony - I felt pretty great! The color is definitely more of a teal, not a green. And, as mentioned in the title of the review, the pockets were a game-changer. There was just enough "pouf" in the skirt to make it feel girly, but it wasn't overdone. I could see where the mid-section might be tight for folks with a wider rib-cage (same with the arms), but I didn't have a problem. In fact, I thought the dress looked pretty slimming! Would definitely rent again - especially after lots of compliments on pictures! :)

This dress was everything I was looking for.
I'm glad I read the reviews because the dress was a little bit tight in the arms as some women had stated, but I definitely was comfortable and felt fantastic! I normally wear a size 18 and the size 20 was perfect. The pockets were honestly the best part of the dress too!

This was a great dress for my brother in law's February wedding!
I read on previous reviews that the sleeves of the dress were tight. When I tried on for the first time, I discovered that the real issue is that fabric of the sleeves has no give, so they don't stretch at all. The 0 fit just as I thought it would, although I could not zip myself up due to the sleeves not giving. Once the dress was on I had no issues and it fit great! Got lots of compliments all night. Was able to dance, go outside comfortably without a jacket, and even wore it out to the after party at a local bar. Overall very satisfied with my choice.

The color is stunning! I felt vibrant but still seasonally appropriate at a winter wedding.
I normally wear an 8 but I'm glad ordered a 10 as a backup - definitely tight in the arms and you will need to size up. It's only because the dress is heavily lined, so I wouldn't recommend it if you're going to be somewhere warm or outdoors. It was perfect for a winter wedding and I got tons of compliments on the vibrant teal color. Hit just above the knee on my 5'6" frame, and the dresses I received were in great condition. A bit of a mature vibe to the dress, so you probably want to save this for a classier event.

Beautiful dress, packed well, tons of compliments, felt great!
As others have commented, the sleeves are a bit narrow/tight. This wasn't a concern for me, but I could see how it could be for others. I'm 5'3" and 105 lbs. and the size 0 fit me perfectly -- just like it was tailored to fit me. Length hit right at the knees and the waist was perfectly proportionate with a nice flow to the skirt (not too wide to overwhelm my small frame). I wore this for a fundraising gala (which I had to fly to and this dress looked perfect coming right out of the suitcase) and I am seriously considering renting it again for a wedding in the Spring.
