Runs small :-(
I ordered this dress last minute for a barn wedding in the Texas hill county, it looks perfect with brown boots! I was so sad that I could only get one size, and unfortunately I guessed wrong. Go 1 size up if you're tall and/or have a larger chest. The material is soft and hugs your body. I wish I ordered the 8 so I could of worn it!

Such a unique and beautiful dress! I received so many compliments!!
This dress was definitely tight under the arms and in the bust area, but fit beautifully otherwise and looked gorgeous. You don't even need a necklace with it because the design up top is so intricate. LOVED this and will likely rent it again!

adorable dress!
I rented this dress for a brunch on one day and going out to a play the next. The dress is super cute and can easily be worn in the daytime or dressed up for night time. It is a little tight in the chest, so it's probably not a great dress for super busty gals. The detail on the chest and sleeves really makes it unique.

Loved the dress in pictures, but was not comfortable with the overall fit.
Usually can fit in a 6 or an 8. Probably could have word a 10, so I would order a size up...it was tight around my arms. very comfortable material however.

Looks great. Was worn for a wedding. Runs a little small
I'm usually an 8 but wore the 10 due to the tightness in the bust and it showed a little tummy so spanks were needed. I definitely would not have been comfortable in the 8. Looked great and received lots of compliments. Handle with care as the knit part on top is delicate.

Unique, fun, a little unforgiving
Loved the color and the casual/fun vibe of this dress. It was perfect for dinner out with my husband. Most rent the runway dresses I get a size 4 and 6 and end up wearing the smaller but this one was a tight squeeze in a six. If you are a curvy body type, I'd recommend going up a size. I ended up wearing spanx (which I never do!) to smooth things out on my hips. The dress wouldn't lay correctly otherwise.

I wore this for a friends wedding and received tons of compliments on it.
I generally wear a 4, but needed to wear a 6 in this dress. I almost wish I could have tried an 8. The shoulders were very tight. However the dress was so pretty, I didn't mind it being a little tight.

Wonderful fit and bright colors
I ordered the 6 as the backup size and it actually fit perfectly and I am very true to a size 4 so make sure to get the larger backup size. The details of this dress are so pretty and it was super comfortable. The lace is light weight which is good since I wore this to a wedding in the summer. Would totally wear this again.

Beautiful dress for a Colorado outdoor wedding!
Fit was small. I usually wear an 8, but had to order the 6 and 10 due to the 8 being unavailable. Thank god the 10 fit perfectly! Great dress for a causal outdoor wedding or event

Not forgiving in the tummy area!
The fit was smaller than I expected. I was bummed I couldn't wear either size for my birthday and it was too late to exchange it back. If you have more to love in the middle, this dress is not for you.

Great dress - just not great for me!
Wore this for a rehearsal dinner - it looked nice but not GREAT. I was so tempted by the lace and color but I just don't think it was a good fit for my body type (short, pear shaped(.

Compliments on the street!
I wore this dress to my sister's birthday dinner. I received several compliments walking down the street to the restaurant. I ended up going up a size in this dress - the shoulders were a bit too small. The dress is very flattering. I would just recommend sizing up if you have muscular arms.

Beautiful dress, didn't love it on myself
Not the most flattering dress on me. A size up may have helped. More of a shift type dress, which does not really flatter my body type, especially if a bit too small. But with Spanx it worked for the wedding I went to. Would recommend to someone smaller!

I wore this for an engagement photo shoot on a ranch.
The dress was a bit on the short side for me (5'11'') but the details were great for the photo shoot. You can easily dress up or dress down this piece. I wasn't crazy about the fit but it worked out.

It was an awesome dress, I received many compliments! The crochet work is beautiful!
The fit was ok. It was very tight against my chest, I wore a 8 and I am a 34B. The rest was fit good around my bottom half. Definitely recommend this dress. I wore it for a rooftop NYC bachelorette party!

Exquisite Dress
I wore this dress for a jazz concert with my boyfriend and his mother. It is short and fun which is perfect for a date with your guy but also the detail and low key color is appropriate for meeting the mom! It was a big hit. I've never had so many compliments on my dress in one night from everyone!

Great service from RTR.
If you have hips and a butt, you should size up. I normally wear a 4 and rented a 4 and it was SUPER tight on me. The dress looked worn and unimpressive. I wouldn't recommend it.

I wore this dress for a Bridal Shower. It was a afternoon party at a victorian home.
The dress runs a little small if you want it to fit as shown in the picture and not be too fitted. The color is very rich. Not so short that I was uncomfortable when sitting that it would ride up. I wore it with black tights and pumps.

Great fit, very comfortable
I rented this for an engagement party, and it was perfect. It runs true to size, but a little on the bigger size. The dress was longer than it appears on the model, about 2 inches above my knee. Very comfortable and the lacy fabric is very soft.

Perfect Shower Dress
I rented this dress for a baby shower I was going to and 2 things for you ladies out there....1. It was PERFECT...true to size, so not completely forgiving 2. It's comfortable! The dress has detailing that leaves people constantly asking where I got it from, but is simple and comfortable enough to allow me to move and not wonder if anything was "falling out". I wore this with Tory Burch flats and EVERYONE complimented me. Loved!

Loved this dress and thought the fit was flattering. I would recommend it for a date or other night out option. I thought it was going to feel like lace the whole way around when really it is incredibly soft.

Versatile and comfortable
I wore this to my company's holiday party (cocktail attire) and got compliments from all my co-workers. The fabric was softer and stretchier than I expected and the hem was only a few inches above my knee. I would definitely recommend this dress, even for a more formal event than brunch like RTR suggests.

I loved this dress! I wore it for New Years Eve and felt very elegant, yet still young and fun. The lace details are incredible, the fit is great, and I found it very comfortable. The compliments were non-stop the entire night!

Very cute dress!!
I loved this dress and received a ton of compliments. The only downside was its length- I found it a bit too long for my taste. I used double sided tape to roll the hem up a tad and then it was perfect! It's great for showing off curves.

That I wore this to my bridal shower and I will have these pictures forever. =)
I wore this dress to my bridal shower. I received so many compliments on it, and I was sad when I had to return it. This was my first dress to rent from renttherunway. I will say that if you have a big bust, you might want to get the 2nd size as a larger one. I got a 6 and a 8; if the zipper had stopped a little lower on the back, i would have wore the 6, but it goes up towards the top of the back, so I had to wear the 8. But, I loved it! I will be renting again.

Comfy, Classy and Headturning.
This dress was so much fun to wear, and supremely comfortable. The lace detail is very eye-catching, and the fabric is soft and perfect for the winter party I was attending. I have large hips and it was very forgiving in the fit. I'm 5'4" and the dress just brushed the top part of my knees, so the length was perfect.
