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!

Felt gorgeous and received many compliments on this dress at the Kentucky Derby
Overall, the dress ran small. Even sizing up, it was snug, particularly in the chest.

Too tight to wear to my event :(
After trying on a size medium with a stylist in the rent the runway store, she encouraged me to order an extra small for my event -- given that the medium fit, but was a little baggy. The xsmall came and sadly it was too tight through the bust and ribs. I had trouble even pulling the dress over my chest (32B) and I was unable to zip it. I was bummed to not wear this to the rehearsal dinner I was attending, but the colors are gorgeous and the fabric is extremely light and flattering.

Loved the bright colors, it was just too big. Small was not available.
Fabric is light and very comfortable. I got the medium as the small was not available and I felt that it was too long and too big. Runs larger I would say.

Loved it and so did everyone else!
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this dress. For a summer wedding, it was perfect. The material was light and breathable. I got nothing but compliments all day. The material isn't stretchy, so there is almost no give. The cut of the dress provides a wonderful silhouette though :) NOTE: I felt like the top was a touch snug, so you may have to take a deep breath as you zip it up. I noticed that the dress self "adjusted" throughout the day (there's a little wrinkle of fabric under my bust line), but it didn't really bother me. A different bra might have changed things.

Not for anyone that isn't flat chested.
I didn't know it was possible for a dress to make me look FLAT but it's now possible. I'm a 32DDD and this dress flattened me so much I looked like a boy! I'm a small 23" waist and this dress fit perfectly as a small there, but can't imagine it fitting anyone that's larger than a B.

Super lightweight, bright and beautiful dress
If you want to feel like you're dressed in butterfly wings, this is the dress. It's stunning, comfortable and really doesn't need much in the way of accessories. 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.

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.

Dress is beautiful, but size down
I rented this for a Valentine's Day dinner, but it was too large - especially in the stomach area. I loved the bright colors and length of the dress, but couldn't wear it because it was visibly too big on me. The fabric is quite thin, which isn't a bad thing, just an FYI. I will likely rent this again, but in a smaller size.

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.

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.

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 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.

didn't end up wearing the dress!
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!

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.

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!

Pretty dress with bright, light-weight fabric.
This dress is very pretty and definitely fun and light weight. Unfortunately, I was not able to wear this dress as I have a large rib cage and was not able to zip the side zipper up. The cap sleeves do not work very well for athletic shoulders. I tried both the XS and the S sizes but couldn't zip either one. The M size would have been too large in the hips. Dress runs small in the chest area and large in the hips.

What great colors for some POP!
This was such a fun dress to wear to a wedding. I ALWAYS have trouble deciding what to wear to weddings, as I don't want to feel out of place, but this was great! I ordered the small and medium, and ended up wearing the medium because my boobs were flattened like pancakes in the small. I had a bit more wiggle room in the medium (important to me!) and also paired with a belt and strappy black shoes. The dress fabric doesn't have MUCH give, but I wasn't uncomfortable at all. Yet another great piece!

Beautiful but not for short-torsos
This dress is really vibrant and lovely in person. It is quite thin and wrinkly as others have mentioned, so I wouldn't recommend it if it needs to be worn for something more formal. Unfortunately, it just didn't work out for me. I'm petite with broad shoulders and this dress is much better for someone taller and narrower. The XS wasn't even close to zipping up on over my rib cage, but the Small was enormous through the middle. The top was far too long for my short torso and made a weird pile of fabric on my lower back. I was sad to have to leave it unworn.

This dress was really pretty-i loved the colors and design. the fit was bit weird as i think others mentioned. The top part was much smaller and tighter than the rest of the dress. this was my back up dress and i didnt end up wearing it. I just felt like although it looked rreally nice on i felt like it was going to be uncomfortable to wear and dance in all night..

I did not end up wearing this dress.
I was hestitant to rent this dress as it had no ratings at the time I rented it. I selected it as a second option and was disappointed when it arrived to see how thin the fabric was. It was not a flattering look on me and it felt very flimsy. I immediately put it into the return envelope!

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.
