Perfect for a casual birthday fun night out
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
TERRIBLE photo, sorry! The color and pattern on this dress are cute and unique, but the photo on the website makes it appear as though the peachy/pink fabric goes about halfway up the back of the dress -- it *does not*! This is, essentially, a backless dress (with just the black criss-cross fabric). Thank goodness I had a black tank top to wear under it or I wouldn't have been able to wear a bra (and no bra, no dress)! The fabric is a little stiff and poufs out at the waist unless you keep smoothing it, but it was a cute, comfortable dress that was perfect for a pretty casual birthday date night. Wore it with black heels and a black cardigan because winter won't go away and it worked perfectly.

True to size. The clasp sometimes came undone but wasn't that much of a pain to deal with. It was really comfortable and a great dress to dance in! I paired it with blush heels.

I looked amazing! Everyone wanted to know who I was wearing!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress was utterly gorgeous. I was able to wear it without a bra, but I think you could get away with wearing one if you kept the back portion in. There was a small button in back portion that I removed because I wasn't wearing the bra, but it would look fine with or without. It ran pretty large. I took the advice of everyone else and ordered a size down and I'm so glad I did. My measurements are 37-29-40 and I ordered the 8 and the 6 and wore the 6 which fit perfectly. The 8 however was way too big. The bust was a little tight, but in a good way and even if I was a little larger I probably still could have worn it. It was really comfortable and held its shape all night, the fabric was perfect! I'm so happy with it and definitely will order RTR again. I wore it with some studded flats and the Badgley Mischka Garden Party clip earrings and the AV Max Glitzy Glamour cuff. The party was a friend's sushi dinner and dance party.

This dress was great. My favorite part was the back of the dress because it was different than most dresses I have worn. I wore it to an evening wedding and it was perfect for the venue. My friend in both pictures also rented from RTR, so it made the whole evening a lot of fun. If you're smaller up top, definitely size down.

Gorgeous dress with a fun surprise in the back

Overall fit: True to Size

The color and pattern were beautiful. The neckline has a hook and eye so you can make it more open or more conservative depending on your personal style. Great first experience with rent the runway...my husband didn't want me to send it back.

This dress is very flattering, looks fun and is appropriate for both ceremony and reception.
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The pattern is gorgoeous, it fits beautifully and it the cute black trim detail makes it both fun and wearable with whatever accessories you have. The fit is very flattering but I am usually a 2/4 and I should have gotten a 0 as the back-up since it runs pretty big and the skirt is poofier than it looks in the picture. For that reason, I took off 1 star but I would definitely recommend this for anyone, especially hourglass figure.

Great dress, maybe a little to exposed for a formal wedding! Beautiful fit.
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress comes with tap for a reason! I left the tap at home and it would have been perfect it I had it with me to keep the open bust closed in. The dress was a beautiful design, I just had to wear a jacket so I didn't expose myself to everyone. But overall very satisfied with my first purchase and will always remember to bring double sided tape with me!

My issue with this dress was the size I ended up wearing had a zipper malfunction. Dress condition aside, the dress is extremely flattering for those of us "blessed on top" with a fun and flirty print.

I loved this dress! Removed the back panel for the full effect of this dress and had compliments from women all night long. My husband actually wanted me to buy the dress! Fit runs just a bit small...I normally wears a size 4 but ended up wearing the backup size 2 and it was perfect. Love the ease of shopping and returning with RTR!! I am a devoted fan!

The back of the dress is really cute. Unfortunately, the skirt of the dress is too poofy and you get lost in it. Makes you look bigger than you are in the hips.

This dress was a beautiful color. I loved the back detail and the neckline. I also didn't think it was too short. I'm somewhere between an 8 and a 10 and the 8 fit nicely.

Got so many compliments on this dress - it is a little more pink than the photos show, plus it photographs at an even lighter pink. But it is a very lovely dress. Only con is that it runs a bit large on us flat-chested types, other than that a great dress for a garden wedding!

I loved the print of this fabric. The special thing about this dress is the back, which is an unexpected lace up. There is a piece of fabric that buttons into the dress, so the lacing could show all skin or have the fabric panel under it so that a normal bra can be worn with it. People stopped me to compliment me. Great dress.

The color is more pink/salmon than orange. The material was cool against the skin, and I love flattering trim along the neckline. I usually wear a size 4, and it ran a bit large on me. The skirt flared out more than I would have liked and made me look boxy.

For some reason i thought the material would flow..but it is a heavier kind of stiff material... I sized up and even that was tight.. may look better on smaller ladies

The one I received was brand new with tags. Loved the color and the back is amazing! So cute and flirty. It also comes with a panel of the dress material that you can button up half of the back if you feel too exposed. I loved it without and didn't feel uncomfortable at all.
