RTR is so easy to use
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Loved this dress. Yellow isn't for everyone, but if you like that color, go for it. Just note it runs REALLY large, I usually am an 8, wore a 6, prob could have worn the 4. Love the material, it's thick and not stretchy. Wore to a summer wedding.

The dress is like a ray of sunshine on a cool summer day!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I would buy this dress in a heart beat, it does run big I am 5'9, 135 lbs, 34/26/37. I ordered the 4 and the 6 and I wore the 4 with plenty of room to spare. It made my waist and rib cage look very tiny, tons of compliments on the color, it was like a ray of sunshine. Fashion tape would have helped hold the straps in the right place, but I did not get my fit kit with my order.

I liked this dress so much, that I ended up buying it. The only problem is I couldn't find it in yellow, so I had to get it in pink. The size 4 was too big, so I ended up buying the size 2 and it fits really well.

Cute, but not quite what I expected
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I ended up liking this dress, but when I first tried it on, I wasn't so sure. The fabric is quite thick...almost like upholstry and the color is darker than it appears in the picture (not quite so lemon-y colored). My biggest problem, thought, was with the mid-section. I have a pretty straight body type and this dress made me look thicker in the middle. However, once I put on a wide belt I really liked the way it looked. Also, I did not fill out the chest area, so I had to buy an extra padded bra to make it work.

I absolutely LOVE this dress! It is super cute and fit me great! I'm usually a size 8 but that was too big on me so I recommend going a size down. It was perfect for the event I was going to.

Loved this dress. I'm kind of broad-shouldered, so it was very snug up top but it worked and I got tons of compliments on it. It was just the right length for a wedding and the pockets were a fun detail.

Fun dress for a spring wedding
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress definitely runs big, so go down at least one size. I usually wear an 8, but wore a size 6 and I still had to wear a padded bra since it was loose in the bust. That being said, it's a pretty color and interesting design, so I would recommend renting it.

At an Indian wedding, I got complimented on Cara's bangles. That's saying something! Plus I got multiple people ask me where I got my dress and I was happy to tell them I rented it from RTR!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Everyone asked where I got my dress and I was happy to tell them Rent the Runway! It was a great way for me to have fun (color and one shoulder) with a dress for my friend's wedding without making the commitment to buy it. As for fit, it does run large. I'm typically and 8/10 and could have gone down to a size 4. The 6 worked but was a bit loose in the bust (of course I'm a size 36A so if you're bustier, you might stick with one size smaller). Dress was lightweight for a summer wedding and the pockets DIDN'T bulge or give added bulk around the middle (very surprising).

I absolutely loved this dress! It stood out at the wedding without looking like I was trying too hard. I received a ton of compliments on it throughout the night and just wish i could afford to purchase it on my own! I would definitely go down a size, I normally wear a 4 and it swallowed me but the 2 fit perfectly.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large

Overall the dress looked great. I got an 8 and 10 because I figured its easier to make a big dress smaller. I probably could have fit into a size 6. The straps were long so pins were needed to keep the dress where I wanted it. It is also not as bright of a yellow as shown in the picture.

Pretty dress, just didn't fit me like I wanted it to
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
As some other reviewers have mentioned, the color of this dress is a bit more of a mustard yellow with an interesting texture, but still very pretty. I have a large bust (34DD) and a smaller waist and this dress just didn't lay right on my body. I wish it would have because I really liked the dress.

Gorgeous fun dress!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was a great dress for dancing all night in! It was not only comfortable fit-wise, the fabric is nice and light. Also, as a taller person, I usually have a hard time finding short dresses that don't end up at my mid-thigh. This one hit right above my knee, and was very flattering. The pockets were a great plus, and blended really well into the front of the dress. Highly recommended for summer wedding season!

A nice dress but runs slightly large
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I chose this dress for the strap detail in the front. I thought it gave visual interest. The general fit of the dress was large. I usually wear a 4 in most styles. After reading other reviews I ordered the 2 as my back up size. The 4 was large. It was noticeably large in the chest area because that is the area on this style that is intended to be more fitted. The 2 fit more snugly but the crossing strap was uncomfortable in that size. I ended up wearing my usual size by wearing my daughter's PADDED strapless bra to fill out the top. The problem was solved. The dress is very pretty. It is a mustard yellow as a previous reviewer stated. The length of the dress hit me about mid knee. The fabric was had a woven pattern giving it an airy feel. It is a very nice dress. But get prepared with a padded strapless bra, just in case.

I wore this to my cousin's baby shower and I loved it from the minute I put it on! So cute! Loved the neckline, loved the detail of the material, loved the color. It was a bit colder that day then it was supposed to be, so I ended up wearing black leggings with the dress, and it still looked awesome! Very comfortable and I'm glad I ordered a size down. If I had ordered my usual size, it would have looked sloppy.

The best part of this dress is the unique neckline. If I owned this dress (I am thinking of actually purchasing it) I would have to have even the size 0 altered because it was still too big in the bust area and kept falling down.

This dress felt retro, classy, and fun. I wore it for our engagement pics. It's more of a mustard color than a sunshine color, but that works well with my skin tone. I ordered two sizes, and I recommend doing so because there is not any give in rib-cage area where the zipper is.

I rarely dislike the dresses I order from RTR but this one was a disappointment. The top looked funny - it just did lay right and the color was super unflattering on me (a blonde with a decent tan). Luckily I had a rockin' back-up dress :-)

Cute dress, slightly awkward
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Im a rather busty gal (34DDD/E) and this still had a little wiggle room in the bust area. I probably should have sized down. The top cuts a little lower than I expected so I'll have to find a strapless bra that sits pretty low.... Tricky for busty women. The material is nice, the cut is flattering, and the pockets are awesome.

I rented this dress as my #1 choice for a summer wedding. The model is really tall and i'm only 5'2 size 0, so the dress came almost down to my calves. it was also very large around the bust area. I would only recommend this dress to taller women- I'm sure it would look fantastic on you!

Fantastic dress for an outdoor summer work party. The cut was conservative but still fun and playful. The color was a little more mustard than the photo but looked great. I received many compliments all night. Pockets were deep and very functional, except for the left pocket on the size 2 that was torn, which is why I'm rating the dress at a 4 instead of a 5. Size 4 was way too big but the 2 fit just right. The fabric was very comfortable even in the heat. Loved this dress.

Perfectly lady-like!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
As others have noted, the color is definitely more of a "spicy mustard"... and the paisley-esque pattern is much more obvious in person than it appears in the picture. That said, the dress was pretty adorable! I ordered sizes 2 and 4. I'm usually a 4 or 6 depending on how form fitting the bottom half is... My top half is never the problem when fitting a size 4, so I anticipated wearing the 2 because of the cut of the dress and the reviews about having to size down. The 2 fit better everywhere except for the length of the straps- which made the dress come up too high into the armpit. I do have a longer torso and sometimes my "shoulder-to-boob" length doesn't fit the cut of a dress! The 4 was looser and longer- less flattering but still cute- and I ended up wearing it for the sake of comfort. Lots of compliments and pockets are always fun!

I wore this dress to a wedding and it was great. A little hard to zip up with a strapless bra, but I am a 34D and that is expected. My only qualm is that the straps were too long, i wish they could have been altered. I got so many compliments on my dress, that it totally makes up for the little things. I definitely recommend this dress.

Beautiful dress! I loved it! I usually wear a size 10 or 12 (leaning towards 12), but I wore this in an 8. I could have easily worn a size 6 in this as well. I loved that it went down just below my knees for a chilly late summer night wedding. The pockets were great too!

I wore this dress to a wedding in Napa and it was perfect -- everyone else was also in beautiful, bright, solid-colored dresses (but I was the only in yellow!). It really popped... but the color was not quite true to how it appears on the site. I was expecting more of a pastel yellow, but in person, this was more like a bright imperial yellow. Not the best shade for my skin tone but it worked ok.

I wore this for my birthday yesterday after a change in plans nixed wearing the short blue sequin number that I also rented. The style of the dress is so cute and works on those of us in our 40s! Yellow can be a challenging color for blondes - -if I had dark hair, this lemon/mustard yellow would've been super - I got used to the color, worked the accessories to make it all work, resulting in lots of compliments! More Nanette Lepore dresses please - -her designs are gorgeous!
