Amazing dress!
I loved this dress for my rehearsal dinner! It was super bridal, very pretty and I love the lace. I did forget it was backless and should have prepared better for that...but the open back was beautiful!

Nice dress, lots of compliments.
It was a bit smaller and was glad I ordered a size bigger. I am bigger in the hips and butt than I am up top, so I had to go a size bigger. It looked good, but thank god I got the larger size. Overall enoyed it and my first RTR experience

Perfect for a bridal shower!
I wore this dress for my bridal shower. It was so pretty and elegant! Definitely got a lot of compliments and people saying that the dress was so beautiful I looked like I was getting married that day. I was going back and forth between the size 4 and size 6, but ended up wearing the 6 because I liked that it gave a little more room in the midsection. Great dress!

Little tight around the hips. I could have worn the size 4 but felt more comfortable moving around in the size 6. The quality of the dress was great and I received several compliments on it!

This dress is bridal perfection!
I loved wearing this dress for my bridal shower! I got so many compliments, including "you look like you could get married today!" I could have worn the 0 or the 2, but I liked how the 2 looked better and liked that I was able to eat and drink comfortably wearing the 2. I loved that it was long enough to sit and open gifts in without riding up. I also loved the open back and didn't even have to wear a nubra. Having a dress that I felt beautiful and bridal in made an already wonderful day even more incredible.

Great bridal shower dress
I wore this dress for my bridal shower. It was a replacement for the original dress I ordered (Shoshanna ivory scarlett dress), and I ended up liking the ML dress better! I'm usually a size 4, which fit OK but was a bit snug. I ended up wearing the 6 so I could be more comfortable. If you're in between sizes, go up! It was fine without a bra.

Beautiful dress!
It is hard to see in the pictures but the lace on this dress has a beautiful unique metallic sheen to it. The back key hole is also amazing! I felt great in this dress but it is fairly tight so if you are trying to hide/disguise your midsection this dress is probably not the best choice. Spanx or some other undergarment that smooths and perfects would also work. Also I am not sure how easy it would be to dance in.

The fit was true to size. I am 5'5 and about 137lbs and the dress fit me great. Was super comfortable with the silk lining on the inside, got many compliments!

Okay rehearsal dinner dress
I wore this to my rehearsal dinner and loved the lace details and back on this dress. Really ordered it for the fun detail on the back. I usually wear a 2 in dresses and ended up wearing the 4 in this one, and it was still a bit snug and thus slightly uncomfortable. Length was just below the knee. Probably wouldn't rent this one again just because it was not very comfortable, but I still got a lot of compliments.

Dress fit snugly - but was beautiful! I got so many complements.
Wore this for my wedding rehearsal and it definitely doesn't look as good on the hanger as it does on. I would recommend this classic piece to anyone for a formal event. I would suggest minimal jewelry. One con is that the dress has been worn a lot so was a bit off-white in person but photographed well.

Beautiful, flattering dress
I rented this dress for my engagement party and could not have been happier with it! As other reviews note, it runs a bit small so I ordered a size up (I usually wear a 4). I received so many compliments and felt great in it! Highly recommend.

Form fitting dress wows at event
I adore this dress. It hugged me in all the right places. The quality was amazing and I only wished I could have kept it forever! If you live near a Rent the Runway, I'd suggest scheduling an appointment or going with a friend...having their opinion and assistance was SO helpful!

The lace is very bridal and classic
This dress is perfect for a small wedding ceremony or bridal shower. The color is a creamy ivory, off white. Not bright white so it's very versatile for all ages, seasons, etc. The dress kept bunching around my hips and doesn't give. I normally wear a 2, but even the 4 was tight around my hips as you can see in the picture. I put a bridal belt to dress it up. The Nicole Miller silver southern plantation earrings paired beautifully with this dress.

Wedding Rehearsal/Rehearsal Dinner
I ordered a 6 and an 8 and ended up wearing the 8. Even though I probably could've squeezed into the 6, I knew I'd be more comfortable in the 8. The lace was beautiful and I didn't notice any discoloration or signs of previous wear. I'd highly recommend renting this dress for any wedding-related activities!

I wore this dress to my bridal shower ! Loved the fit and style.
I would say the dress ran true to size, I could have probably gotten away with the 8, but I liked the length of the larger size. (I am 6'). Overall, comfortable, elegant and made me feel special for my shower!

Perfect Rehearsal Dress
Rented this dress for my church rehearsal and welcome reception. Incredible design that was traditional but fun and I received countless compliments. The fabric underneath the lace bunches a bit around the midsection and you definitely cannot wear a bra, I was fine without. Perfect dress for the occasion.

My wedding day
I rented this dress for what I though would be my court house wedding. My (now) husband and I are both active duty military and are stationed in different states. We wanted something quick to make it official before we both faced deployments. Rent the runway was really helpful in making my day a little more special. After I made my order it was worry free. The size 4 fit perfect, a figure hugging dress, so I am glad I ordered up as my second option. There was a little wear in some areas but it wasn't at all noticeable. It wasn't a true white and the design had a slight gold to it, but it the sunlight it was all the better for it. The open back was an exquisite detail (I needed a nu bra for it).I definitely recommend this dress and this service to anyone.

Very pretty, but didn't work out for me.
The fit is really small. I read the reviews and went with my normal size and one size up and both were too small. I could barely zip the size 6. I feel like the size 8 would have zipped ok, but would be too wide in the hips for me, as I have narrow hips. It's a really pretty dress but definitely runs small. Wish it could have worked out for me.

Perfect dress for a wedding shower!
I am a very fair skinned person so I dreaded having to buy anything white. This was perfect because it is a creamy ivory and the lace is very durable. I did not feel like it was going to rip on me because it was lace. There is not much give, but I am typically a size 6 or 8 and I ordered an 8 and a 10 because designers tend to run small, but the 8 fit perfectly. I could not raise my arms over my head because of the lace, but I never needed to so it wasn't a big deal. I loved the boning over the tummy too! I got so many compliments!

Beautiful lace dress, perfect for a special occasion!
I ordered this dress to change into for my wedding reception. I usually wear a 4 or 6 depending on the style of dress; both sizes of this dress fit pretty much the same to me, but I wore the 6 for a little bit more room to move & dance. The lace is beautiful and delicate; the color is a perfect off-white. I loved the back of this dress! Instead of wearing an uncomfortable sticky bra, I just put some cups in the top and the dress held them in place. (I'm sure if you're more busty, you could just not wear a bra at all.) I was a little worried it would be an awkward length and look matronly, but the length was great for me- slightly above the knee. It was fitted in all the right places (no need for Spanx!) and felt elegant and timeless.

Perfect reception or shower dress for wedding!!!
This dress is perfection!! I wanted a short dress for my reception that was also feminine and photographed well. The lace on this dress is exquisite - from the delicate capped sleeves to the back of the dress, you will look amazing. I received more compliments on this than my wedding gown, it is that gorgeous. It did run true to size, but I didnt wear a bra underneath (didnt want to deal with a strapless bra for my reception, I just wanted to dance!) but you couldn't tell, the layers were thick enough that one is not required unless you want the extra oomph...I had a corset but despite it's low back, it still was visible so beware you may need a nu-bra.

I loved this dress! It was perfect for my bridal shower. I usually wear a zero but I wore a 2 in this dress. I'm very busty but slim from the waist down - the 2 fit well throughout.

Simply amazing!
I wore this for our small Catholic Wedding. I am 6' 1" tall, so it didn't fit perfectly, but I still enjoyed wearing the dress. The 8 was tight in my hips, but the 10 was too big. The length was perfect. It was a beautiful dress, though it was starting to show a bit of wear.

I wore this dress to my intimate garden wedding. It was elegant and very flattering.
I usually wear a zero, but the 0 I ordered was just slightly too tight and inclined to bunch up around the waist instead of laying smoothly. The 2 fit perfectly, highlighting my curves and fitting snugly while still letting me sit and walk comfortably. The dress is absolutely gorgeous, even better than the pictures I'd seen. Elegant white lace without being too formal, just what I wanted for our small ceremony. It was slightly longer on me than I would want for a cocktail or other formal-occasion dress, but I did not mind that in this case.

Rent the runways is so effortless! When I was stressed out with wedding planning the last thing I wanted to do was go out and find a dress for all the events leading up to the big day! With a few clicks I found this beautiful dress and it showed up at my door just on time! I loved it so much and it was the perfect dress for my rehearsal church and dinner!

Classic and flattering dress for my bridal shower.
I wore this dress for my bridal shower! I am normally a 4, but it was way too tight on my glutes and shoulders so I sized up and the 6 was perfect. No need to wear a bra, but I used nuba just to give myself a little extra up top. It is comfortable and does not ride up like other form fitting dresses. I got many compliments and was sad to return it! If you are curvy, I suggest sizing up. This dress doesn't need to be skin tight!
