Great color and pattern, not the cut for me

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Small

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

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.

The pros: great color, fabric and super comfortable. I wouldn't say there are any cons, however, if you have an hourglass figure be careful.. the bottom part fits but was a tiny bit snug. Not enough to make the dress hike up or feel uncomfortable but just a heads 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.

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

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
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

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.

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..

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

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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.

Pretty Dress, Hard to Raise Arms and A little Shear

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was very pretty but it is vary easily wrinkled because of the fabric so traveling with a steamer is a must. The dress was a little shear but not enough that you need to wear a slip under it. The cap sleeves prevent you from raising your arms above shoulder level so if you are going to dance in it, maybe re-think it. Overall it worked for the rehearsal dinner I was attending.

Gorgeous colors, but odd fit.

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
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.

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.

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!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
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.

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 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.

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.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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.

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.

Vibrant Colors that Can't be Ignored

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I wore this for a formal brunch. While the dress is gorgeous, there are a few things to note: 1) the dress isn't lined, so it gives the material a cheaper feel. 2) There is absolutely no give, so know your size. 3) the material wrinkles pretty easily. 4) If you're bustier, you may want to size up as this dress was tight in the chest. 5) the sleeves are designed to start before your natural shoulder. If you have big arms, I'd suggest going a size up, but it's simply the design. I wore both the L and M and both shoulders felt weird, but the medium fit best.

Disappointed I could not wear :(

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.

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!

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!
