The dress was less structured than I expected, though not at any cost to quality. The dress is very specifically tailored with little room for forgiveness if it doesn't fit just right, which means it would be lovely if it does fit. Unfortunately the shoulders were much too narrow, making the top section of the dress rest awkwardly and pucker, and the waist fell too low, which either meant pulling it up and having excess fabric bunched around my waist or pulling it down and having it fit too tight around my hips. I wish the dress had been more suited to my shape, because I otherwise would've been very happy with it.

I was really disappointed
I was so excited to rent this dress, but ended up returning it. First off, the fabric is AWFUL. It is so thin and feels like it needs another layer underneath. It feels cheap. It is also a horrible shape. I went a size up so it would fit in the chest but it was still way too small and then it makes you look awkwardly wide on the bottom. I was really disappointed overall.

Amazing color and fabric
This dress has beautiful silk panels. It is dressy, but cool, and the colors have a lovely sheen. The fabric is a lightweight silk, so it is very thin (don't pick this in cold weather). I am typically a size 4-6 and I fit right between the medium and small. I could have squeezed into the small, but the medium was more comfortable and not too loose. The only reason I can't give this dress 5 stars is because it wrinkles easily. That isn't a big deal for an evening event when the lights are low, but it might show up at a day event. The dress arrived more wrinkled than most RTR dresses, so I had to press it with a warm iron before the event. Overall, I loved wearing it.

Not a flattering dress for me.
Pros- Beautiful colors!! I wanted to wear this to a benefit and didn't want to wear a boring black dress. Cons- The fit wasn't flattering. The material was thin, I was torn between ordering a XS & S or S&M. The small was big on the shoulders. the waist was fine but then since I am short it was a little longer. I was disappointed in the way the dress fit. I also didn't end up wearing it since it arrived today and I needed the dress for the benefit last night. I did want to try it on so there can be other reviews since there weren't many when I reserved it.

Fabulous, unique dress; great for a night out or party
I chose this dress for a Breast Cancer benefit for YSC. I wanted something pink and fun. I chose this as my back-up dress because based on the pictures of the model, I thought there was no way this was going to fit me properly - the photos look so tailored and fitted. My experience was perfect, though; it fit great, was not too tight or too loose in any place. I found the fit flattering, so I wore this dress to the event. Compared to the other dress I chose, I felt this was a little more grown up. It also easily paired with black shoes and accessories, where I think other pink dresses really needed gold. Great dress, and I would definitely choose this again.

Great color and pattern, not the cut for me
I'm surprised by other comments saying this dress runs large. This is the first time I wasn't the smallest size available from Rent The Runway. I couldn't get the XS anywhere close to zipping up around my ribcage. The small fit, but it didn't leave a lot of room in the chest. Someone with a larger bust might have to size up twice. The waist came up above my belly button and then there was a lot of room where the dress flared out for larger hips. It was sort of restricting in the arms too. It was an awkward fit all around and I didn't feel comfortable. However I think for someone shorter, or with a shorter torso, it could work nicely. Fit on me aside, this is a lovely summer dress. It's a very lightweight, unstructured material. The fabric has an iridescence to it and the color is great

Runs verrrrrrry small if you are D++++
I will keep this dress in mind for the future. It is very light weight, good for warm climes. Beautiful colors, so tropical-next time I will order a M and a L, b/c could not zip it up past my ribs.

It was tight - no stretch to it, so it definitely runs on the smaller side. I recommend sizing up.

Too Small
Unfortunately, both the S and M were too small and I had to return them. The dress certainly runs small and there is absolutely no stretch. I would not recommend even the largest size for women with a full bust.

It was SO large! The back/ seat area was huge and I looked like a balloon from the side. Too boxy. I would not recommend and I returned it. Nice material and color though.

I wore this for my Bridal Shower and received so many compliments!
It ran a little small so ended up wearing the Medium. Other than that it was great! The material wasn't too thick and had a shine to it that was nice.

Beautiful bright colors.
The dress is made of a thinner material than I expected. Also it was short. I wore it to the theater and was glad I brought a sweater along for my lap, when I sat down. It rode up quite a bit.

great color, not so flattering shape
I ordered the dress for a press covered event, thinking the color block would show up great on camera. The shape was not as flattering on my body type. It is more boxy than it seems in the model's photo (she is in a wide stance so it seems to be fitted to her body). Also, the material is formal and has more of a sheen to it. All in all, loved the color and bold graphic element, but the shape and shine of the dress added on about 10 pounds in pictures.

Lightweight and beautiful!
I rented this dress for a friend and she absolutely loved it. The colors are beautiful and given it was so hot out that weekend she kept commenting how light the dress felt on her. I didn't rent this dress so my measurements don't apply- the girl who wore it is 5'10 and about 110 lbs and she wore an XS. It fit her perfectly though she said raising her arms was a little difficult. No worries though. She looked stunning and the dress hugged all the right places to make her feel womanly despite not having many curves.

Great looking dress; fabric isn't ideal if you're going to be sitting for a while
I wore this dress to a wedding this summer, and despite the previous reviews, I thought the dress fit true to size. If anything it ran a tad bit big, as it was loose in my stomach area. The fabric is pretty, and definitely gives off a more formal look, however, it is so light and delicate, that it was already all creased and crinkled by the time I got up from the 15 minute ceremony to go to the cocktail hour.

Didn't make me feel special.
The medium I received was a little big. When I put the dress on, I wasn't impressed. Maybe that was because it was big, but the style isn't as nice on me as it looks on the model's picture.

Great friends! Great dress!
Loved this dress. It was definitely much more silky in person (almost like a kimono material). I tried to find a picture that showed that a bit because I was surprised by it! But it was very comfortable! Ran quite small in the ribcage so I was glad I had the backup size.

Did not wear it
This dress is meant for someone with a tiny waist, smaller chest, but full hips/ bum. The small would have been perfect but I could not zip it up around my ribs. The medium fit my mid section but was a bit loose on top/ shoulders and definitely in the hips. It was long too. Hit right above my knees. I looked like a dork. If you're a tall person with a tiny waist, and a full bottom, I would suggest this dress. If not, do not get it. While the fabric is beautiful, it has zero stretch. It will not mold to your body.

Gorgeous colors, but odd fit.
I wore this to my youngest sister's bridal shower. I LOVED the beautiful colors and fabric, but, as others have commented, the way it fits is a bit odd. The skirt fit me perfectly, but it was a teeny bit large from my waist to the band of my bra. But my boobs were straining against the fabric--so that part of the dress was a bit too small. And yet, the shoulders were a bit too big. The photo of the model wearing the dress is a bit deceiving, I think, because the skirt is cut for a closer fit than it looks in the photo.

Gorgeous dress,picked it for the colors to wear to a summer wedding.
I found the fit to be pretty tight - I am normally a 10 and the Large was snug - I have no bust, so it wasn't tight around the top, just overall felt snug, would not have been comfortable dancing. Wore the backup dress (a splendid Vera Wang lacy thing) which turned out to be perfect.

The fabric on this dress doesn't really have much give. The fit just wasn't perfect, a bit too big in the shoulders and a bit too big in the hips. Would be great for an hourglass shape!

This dress looks fun on the website, but in reality the fabric is kind of cheap. It's see thru when held up to the light! I think if I sized up I would of worn it. The fabric has no stretch- so watch out full busted women! I really do like this dress but would definitely size up!

Hot date night! Vibrant and sexy dress!
Dress is true to size and RTR is correct in recommending size smaller, HOWEVER, dress was very snug around mid section and cap sleeves.I think it also depends on how you like the dress to fit. If you dont want to feel any tightness, then go with a medium, but i'd imagine it would look baggy? I was very torn on which size to order! I agree with other reviewers that this would be ideal for a petite, possibly non athletic build. That being said, i still loved the dress and felt sexy in it.

Love this dress!!!
Got this dress as an alternative for my engagement photos and I'm so glad I did! I love the bright colors and it was very comfortable (was worried since other reviews said fabric was stiff). It's a little on the short side for me, especially when sitting or reaching up but not a huge deal. Would buy this dress if I could as I felt great wearing it

The zipper ripped.
The zipper ripped open beyond repair while I was in the middle of dinner at awedding. Wardrobe nightmare. I tried on the dress beforehand, so I know it fit. It was just a very bad wardrobe malfunction. Thankfully, I had a long cardigan. And RTR was kind enough to issue a refund. Let it also be known that this dress is beautiful. A truly tragic event.

Nice dress, not for my body type.
The colors on the stress are beautiful. The fabric was also very nice and in good condition. The design on the stress would be better suited for someone with a longer torso. I also felt like the shoulders ran a little narrow and this dress is better for those with an average to smaller than average chest. .

Standout dress, but I didn't wear it.
The dress is gorgeous, but it was too small for me (I rented the Large). It's hard for me to say if it 'runs small' or is 'true to size' - most Large dresses on RTR fit me, but designer dresses can run small in general, so I went with that. I really wish I could have worn it. It's so bright and fun, but very classic.

I enjoyed wearing this dress for a daytime indoor party. It was upbeat and bright.
This dress runs a little small in the bust and shoulders. I am 5'3" and 120lbs. I ended up wearing the medium due to shoulders. The waist and hips have plenty of room due to the subtle A-Line cut.

Disappointed I could not wear :(
Unfortunately I could not wear this dress to my event. I tried it on, and while it "fit", i.e., I could zip it up, the dress was pretty tight along my hips, and kept riding up. There was no give in the fabric and even trying the dress on with Spanx didn't help. Also, the top was kinda large and it was too big up top. So, overall, the dress didn't fit me properly. The arm holes for this dress were really small, so anyone with larger arms probably would have a tough time with the side zip closure. I liked the colors, but it did look like the dress was wrinkly, just because of the fabric type. I would recommend this dress for an athletic body type. Definitely not for an hourglass figure.

I got so many compliments on that dress.
The length of the dress was perfect as well as the colors. It's perfect if you want to stand out from the crowd. I am a petite size so I didn't have any real problem with the shoulders as some suggested, but it's true that if you have an athletic body, the shoulders might be too small. I was afraid that the small size would be too small because of my bust but it fit perfectly. Would definitely recommend that dress to my friends!

A unique look!
I wore this dress for my bridal shower. It was bright and a unique look for my special day! It did run a little small on my since I have hips....so at times it would rise in the back, but nothing too noticeable. I suggest sizing up since it's only offered in S, M, and L. All in all, loved the dress and the look!

Fun, bright frock that caught a lot of people's attention!
The dress was very pretty, although the cut on top is very fitted. I had to wear spanx to zip it, because from the waist up it is very tight. I worry that the small would have been too large on the bottom however, as the bottom of this fit me well. I am not busty at all, so I definitely do not recommend this to anyone who is. Also the model stock photo makes the dress appear to have more structure than it does. It was a cool style and great cut but be aware that there is no structure- the dress material is quite thin (but not see through). I received many compliments on the dress, so I think overall it was a thumbs up!

Bright vibrant colors!
This dress was sent to me as a back up because the dress I originally rented was no longer available. I didn't end up wearing this dress ONLY because I was afraid I would be underdressed. In hindsight, I would have fit in perfectly with this dress. It was amazingly bright! The shoulders did feel a little tight, but I think a size up (6) would have been too big. Would love to rent this again for a different affair.
