I received so many compliments on this dress - I loved it so much I did not want to send it back! I read the reviews for the same dress in coral before renting it and a lot of people said the dress does not stretch. It really does not stretch, but unless you are trying to do gymnastics in it then you should be fine. The lace on the shoulders is cut perfectly so that you can also lift up your arms all the way as well.

Wore this for my wedding rehearsal dinner. The color is a pale pink and lace is very pretty. I received many compliments and felt so comfortable the entire night. I especially like the keyhole at the top of the dress, its contemporary yet classic at the same time! Would definitely rent again!!

Elegant dress, but not perfect

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was pretty form fitting and didn't have a lot of "give" at all. I wore a similar dress by the same designer for the last wedding I attended and this one just wasn't as great. It was tight around the legs and fell just above the knees, so not wonderful for dancing. It was also HOT to wear. I had to ditch my Spanx because I was basically creating an oven. The opening in the chest showed a bit more cleavage than I anticipated, but I thought it was fine because of the modest length/back/rest of neck. It looked great and if you're not anticipating an "active" event, it would be really elegant!

Beautiful dress! I received compliments on it all night long!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This is a classy, beautiful dress! As other reviewers have said, there is no stretch so you are a little restricted on terms of arm movement (no YMCA in this dress), but it wasn't too bad. It does run a little small. I am between a 2 and a 4, and I chose to wear the 2 because it was more fitted through the hips and waist. I wore a strapless bra and spanx. The back of the dress is stunning, and I wore my hair up to showcase it. I also rented the earrings and bracelet, which really completed the look. I highly recommend this dress! It is even more beautiful in person than on the model!

When a good friend of ours turned to my husband and say "Wow! Your wife is hot!"

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress. Searched the site for the perfect fitted lace dress for my friends wedding and accidentally stumbled on this when I thought all the perfect ones were unavailable. Based on the reviews, I got a 6 with a backup of 8 as I usually wear either of those depending on the cut - but I'm quite pear shape and the dress was very tight. I could have easily gone up a size, but didn't have any time for an exchange. So, I wore plenty of control underthings and could still breathe and carefully sit, haha! There is no leg slit, and no stretch, so if you have bigger legs - beware. Gorgeous detail and color.

The blush pink dress was classy and elegant! Perfect for my birthday party!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The lining causes it to run a tad small. I would say 1/2 size. I got both the 12 and 10. I am a true 10 and typically size 12 gaps and looks baggy. This size 12 was a bit big, the 10 was a little tight but I still preferred the 10. The hip and busy area is where I noticed most of the tightness.

The customer service and compliments on the dress.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
It definitely fits a bit snug. I am almost always a 6, and ordered that and the 8. Very glad I did as the 6 was more restricting than I wanted for a night of dancing. The 8 was great. I'm 5'8" and 135lbs. The dress is also more of a baby pink than the blush it looks on the screen- at least my screen. Still very pretty! I got a ton of compliments and am super happy with my first RtR experience. Looking forward to using it again!

"Your dress is gorgeous"

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was nervous about the color of this dress being too light pink (read: white faux pas at a wedding) but it was perfect. I wore it with nude pumps and minimal jewelry and got several compliments on how gorgeous the lace and dress was. I'm a very petite size 0, so I always worry about dresses running too large. This dress was great. There was room for me to move, and it also flattered my non-existent curves. The one con was the lace near my left armpit kept rubbing with my dance moves and I ended up with a little burn mark. I would definitely rent this dress or a similar Monique Lhullier again.

This dress was perfect for a late summer wedding! Loved the soft pink/peach color and all of the lace detail. I normally wear a 6, but the dress ran a little tight in the hip area so I wore the 8 instead. The 8 fit great on the bottom, but the top was a bit looser than I would have liked.

Beautiful dress, the lace is so delicate, such a soft pink, very cute dress!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Sorry the picture is so bad, but the color really is a soft baby pink. It isn't as light as the color on the model. I was worried about it being too light for a wedding and clashing with the bride, but it's definitely pink. It's a perfectly soft light blush pink. The cut is very flattering, and the cap sleeves are very comfortable. The fabric is very soft and slightly giving. I wore spanx just to help keep everything together. The dress was so nice, highly recommend. Don't really need accessories besides earrings and maybe a bracelet.

This was my first Rent the Runway order and I will DEFINITELY be doing it again!

Lace for life.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I have a fairly small ribcage and a small chest usually running a size 0/xs. My hips are regularly a size 2, (26 jeans) The dress could have been more fitted on top for my preferred taste, but I only received compliments, making me feel that the size was not at all obstructing the elegance of the dress. The dress has ZERO stretch and is made out of lining that tends to get really warm. Overall, the dress was amazing and I am glad that as my first rented dress, It was a success.

It runs a bit big especially the top part(I'm 32A wearing size 2). I suggest to wear a silicone or strapless bras with padding. The lace detail is very delicate so it may be torn if you move too much. I like how it's very comfortable yet classy. You look chic and expensive!

Sadly, Didn't Fit Perfectly

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress last minute for my best friend's wedding rehearsal dinner. RTR only had one size available: 4. Sadly, my back-up size: 6 wasn't available. Based on the reviews, I decided to order it. Sadly, I couldn't wear it to the event. Although the dress fit like a glove, the lining below the lace kept riding up around my hips in one specific area. It just didn't look good. Plus, whenever I would sit down, the neckline would pull against my throat. Obviously very uncomfortable. It's a bummer because it's such a cute dress. Thankfully, I brought a back-up option that I owned and I was able to wear that. A waste of money for the rental, but oh well.

Looked great in the wedding as a bridesmaid dress. But the band runs in between the waist and the hips so makes it uncomfortable and feel tight. If it wasnt for that band I would have fit into the size 4

The fit was pretty spot on, although it was a little loose in the chest (which doesn't happen EVER). The fit was a little bit restrictive, but I really really liked the detail around the neck (didn't make my boobs look like a ski slope so I was pumped). The cap sleeves were a little annoying though- I didn't have the range of motion I wanted with them. The color was gorgeous and it was definitely a hit.

I was unable to wear this dress because it did not fit properly.

Size worn: None

I was unable to wear this dress because it did not fit properly. Just having a baby 7 weeks ago and not losing all of the weight yet made it difficult for me to feel comfortable in most dresses, however this dress was especially unflattering. The dress was rather stiff, particularly in the waist. It was a very pretty dress and pre-baby I'm sure it would have fit better. When I called RTR to tell them the dress did not fit they were very understanding and we chose another dress that would fit better for the event. As always, RTR comes to the rescue! Their customer service is top notch and that is why I do not buy dresses anymore ;)

I needed a light pink dress to wear as a bridesmaid to my friend's wedding. I was afraid it wouldn't fit me since I do have a small frame with small chest but wide hips. This fit me so well, and it also gave me room to stuff my face full of the delicious wedding food. I got many compliments and my husband loved it too.
