Beautiful Color!

I used this dress for my engagement photos. It added a beautiful pop of color. My only complaint is that the hips were wide too wide for me. I have a wide back and small bust. The 6 was too narrow in the chest (material has no stretch), so I had to wear an 8. The hips are probably proportional for someone who is a classic size 8 but it was bulky for me. In some pics, it was noticeable and the material would bunch up, making me look wider than I am. I wouldn't rent this again because I would need to have this sort of dress tailored to ensure a perfect fit.

Didn't fit. No stretch! Not meant for curvy girls

Although the dress was beautiful with color and lace, the cut and material of the dress doesn't allow for some hips or butt. I could barely breathe in the size 2 and the 4 bunched up in the hip area. No comfortable and I wound up returning it straight away!

Simple yet eye catching

No give in the dress at all, but because of that everything stays in place :) it is loser in the midriff area but I think it's to accentuate the hips, which was very flattering. Fits best on an hourglass figure, true to size.

Love this dress!!

I don't think I'll ever be able to afford a Monique Lhuillier dress myself so renting it is an amazing opportunity. Rented it as a bridesmaid for my friends wedding. It's beautiful and fits true to size. Only problem is that there's a giant hole at the bottom. I wish they'd check and or fix that before they sent it to me. I'm just hoping it doesn't show up in pictures.

It was ok. The lace made it seem home sewn. The zippers are always an issue with RTR but it looks good in the photos.

Even though this dress didn't quite fit, RTR helped me find another dress that did fit!

I ordered this dress but it didnt't quite fit in the hips. It was a little loose. The dress itself was really pretty for a trumpet shaped dress. The color was exactly how it looks in the picture. I think this dress would look awesome on a girl with more curves though.

It was simply amazing.

The dress runs a little loose around the waist and bust, but is tight at the hips. Definitely get a size down. It simply perfect, the lace overlay has amazing detail and I was one of the best dressed people at prom. It photographs so well and you see all the detail in every photo.

Simplicity made it a stand-out dress

It was lose around my midsection so I ended up belting it. It did not hug my body like i wish it did. I wore flats with the dress but could have possibly worn 2-3 inch heels and still have it touch the ground. Very nice detail and color was just like the picture. It worked out well in the end but I was not in love with the dress.

The only thing I would say when renting this dress is rent your normal size and a size down. This is what I had to do and it worked for me!! Normal size is 6 and I wore a 4

Kind of Prom

This was not the dress that I selected. They sent it to me because the backup size in my original dress [an elegant, sexy, tight pink gown] was unavailable, so they sent me this as the backup, in 2 sizes. Commendable for customer service and compensating for the situation, but this was just too prom for me. It also fit too large at the waist/hips. I decided to wear it as a slightly more conservative version to the church ceremony then switch to the sexy (slightly too tight) original dress for the reception.It's also long, even in 4" heels for me at 5'1".

RTR CustomerDecember 22, 2013
it looks kind of tight under your bottom, how did you get this kind of mermaid look ?
TLCDecember 22, 2013
I didn't do anything differently. Maybe it's the angle of the photo. And I have more of a booty than the model..?

Really Magical! (Don't let your hips lie!)

The dress was one I fell in love with instantly. I chose to wear it to our New Year's gala at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, a very strict & formal affair. I ordered both a 2L & 4L since I usually wear 6+ inch heels. The two was a perfect fit in the waist. However, the lace design used to accent the hips sat much too high, apparently everyone who is a size 2 is short. The bust of the 2 was much too snug and sitting in that dress was a disaster. I opted to wear the 4 even though while the hip design sat on my hips correctly, it was not nearly as form fitted as I would have hoped. Word to the wise, while the fit may not be as tight to the body as pictured, the trumpet style bottom and intricately designed hips give a flattering hourglass shape. Even though I felt the dress maybe a bit baggy, everyone: EVERYONE LOVED the way it looked. All night my boyfriend and I were stopped to be told how "Captivating" and "Gorgeous" it was.

Did not get to wear it. Rented this second dress for my daughter. It was too big for her.

A beautiful well made dress. Needed a size smaller for my daughter. Did not get to wear. Did not get to try on until the night of Day 2 because of a back injury I had. Returning it prior to the event on 4/12 PM. Could not get pickup or to UPS store prior due to injury.

I rented this dress for my senior prom & unfortunately was very disappointed.

This dress runs very large. I usually wear a size 4 comfortably. This dress literally fell off my body. The material also look somewhat cheap, for how expensive the retail price is. I do love Rent The Runway, but I do not recommend this dress!

The dress was perfect for a formal wedding at the Ritz

fit was good but ran large in size. the support on the sides were ok, but when you sat down they were not flexible enough to make the dress comfortable. But all in all it was a nice dress great for the occasion I felt very pretty!

This dress was not flattering

The dress was pretty but it seems someone not of a size 0 worn/tried on and stretched the dress out. Does not have any stretch in the dress, therefore, the material was stretched out. Luckily, RTR customer service saved the day and had a new dress we picked out sent the next day around noon in time for the wedding! That dress worked out so much better! Thanks RTR !

Dress didn't fit in 2 or 4 and so I didn't end up wearing it!

As other posters mentioned, the fit is a bit weird. The 4 was definitely too big and the 2 was a bit tight around the bust but then still really loose around the stomach area. The 2 so had a lot of wear and so I decided to just wear one of my own. The length was good though with 5 inch heels.

Showstopper Dress!

I used this dress for one of my models for a recent show and it was incredible. It was the last dress of the night and definitely is a show stopper - only thing is if you are small chested make sure you get a padded bra because the top is a little loose. Other than that the fabric was fantastic, heave and expensive. The model was tall and the length was perfect for her! I definitely recommend this dress for a formal affair - the pink was a perfect blush shade and not overwhelming at all!

I thought it was a little narrow on my hips, but besides that, it is a pretty dress

you look beautiful! So did it feel like it was falling off at all? and can you get away with not wearing a bra (im a 34 b)
LeahApril 12, 2013
I didn't think it felt like it was falling off. The hips were pretty tight, so the overall dress stayed up on it's own and I didn't have to worry about pulling it up constantly. Hope this can help you out a bit!

This was a gorgeous dress. Beautiful color. Very flattering.

The fit was tight through the bust but still worked. The problem was that the boning came through the top and made it unwearable. Which was too bad because it looked so elegant

Too Small/Short for Me

Sadly, this was my backup choice and it didn't fit. Even though I got the long, it would have been far too short. And that was before I even put heels on! Such a pretty pink though!

Beautiful dress. Did not fit. Size 2 was too small. Size 4 was too big.

I ordered my usual 2 and a backup 4. The two was wayyyy to small for me, and the 4 fit, but had this odd pouch-y stomach thing going on that was not flattering at all. This was my first no go when it comes to a dress rental. Everything else I have ordered has always fit perfectly. This one seems to be stretched out a little too much though. Rent the Runway was GREAT and was ready to overnight me a dress I could wear just in time for my event. CUSTOMER SERVICE is FABULOUS!!!

very fitted

Very fitted dress. If you have hips, this is not the dress for you. I could not zip it up and the back up larger size was not available because it was returned in a bad condition; however, RTR called me right away and recommended a different option and sent it over. Their customer service is awesome and it is why I keep renting from them.

Perfect Marilyn Monroe!

Fits small for the designer. It was very tight! I'm used to wearing 10's in ML and this was up a size due to my hips. My measurements are 40" bust, 30"waist, and 42" hips. Great dress! Did the job!

I attended the Marine Corps Ball and this dress definitely stood out in the sea of red dresses!

This dress was absolutely beautiful! It is more of a pale pink color than pictured (it's not as bright but still pretty). If you're curvier like me and a bit bigger in the bust area, I'd recommend sizing up since it's very form fitting. But also very flattering!

I wore this dress for a wedding.

I got my regular size and a size up for backup. I ended up going with the size up because my hips would not fit comfortably in my normal size. If you are a curvy girl like me, I would just honestly suggest you either go a size up or pick another dress. Since I had to go a size up, The bust area was a bit too large and I had to keep pulling my dress up. It wasn't terribly bad, but it easily got annoying. The dress itself was absolutely beautiful and I received tons of compliments all night, but unless you're tall and lean, you might run into some issues.

Fun night

I got my regular size and a size up for backup. I ended up going with the size up because my hips would not fit comfortably in my normal size. If you are a curvy girl like me with hips you need the a size up. The only problem I had was with the breast area the boning was sticking out under the both arms which bother a bit through the night. Over all I loved the dress it hugged all of my curves the right way. I got lots of great compliment throughout the night.

It was a formal gala and this dress was perfect for the theme of the party.

I got serveral compliments on the dress, the color is lovely! Its a corset type of fit so sitting, bending down and dancing were pretty much out of the question. Given its snug fit, its great for an hour glass type of body. Overall - happy with the dress and how it looked.

Beautiful Dress!!

LOVED this dress!! The color and lace details are gorgeous. The combination of intricate lace detail made the pink work so well - I wish there were more dresses in this color!!! So fun and unexpected and refreshing from the typical black dresses!!! :) Initially I chose a 6L because I'm typically a 6 in dresses (7 or 8 in pants) but when it came I barely got the 6L on/zipped (well, I did, but I couldn't breathe or move or twist the dress to make it straight!). RTR overnighted me an 8L (THANK YOU RTR!!!!) and it fit just right!! It was still very snug around the hips. I have wide hips, although I didn't think they were "that wide" until I wore this dress :) My waist is small so I would not have gone up a size, but looking at pictures, my backside curves were very visible! I wore the dress with a strapless bra and spanx, both worked just fine with the dress and there was plenty of room for both! Bust fit perfectly, and the upside of the tight fitting dress (with help from he boning within the top of the dress) was that I didn't have to pull the dress up once!!! Pretty rare for a strapless dress, so that made me very happy! I am 5 ft 8.5'' and bought two pairs of shoes, one 2'' and another 3.5" and was pleasantly surprised when the dress was long enough for me to wear the high ones!! yay!! I would highly recommend the dress, but would suggest getting the dress in your typical pants size (as opposed to your "dress size"), plus one size up if you have wide hips! Thanks RTR for offering a dress in such a beautiful pink color as this!!! :)
