Fun and flirty, but still classy

I ordered a 2 and 4, as I was concerned about the top being a little tight because I am a 32 DDD. However, the 2 fit great! I am 5'5", and the dress was a little short when I was wearing heels. So if you are tall, be wary of the length! This dress made me feel fun, but also classy enough to be at a wedding with family and grandparents. Would definitely recommend!

Compliments all night, people loved the dress!

Pros - arrived on time and even got an accessory credit for any amount because the bracelet I ordered wound up being damaged and unable to rent so I go a free rental for the marabou black bolero . It was the perfect combination for a chilly fall wedding . Cons dress is a little poofy with the tulle and would get caught on my husbands bracelet while dancing ... Overall fit like a glove and totally hid my post baby belly of two perfectly !

I have used RTR since college, they're amazing, period.

Loved the dress! I got a ton of compliments on it! Two things to know about this dress: it is a little short and the arm holes are a little small (especially if you lift weights).

It's a great dress. Lots of complements and suited perfectly to the moment: a black-tie & mask party

I gave 4 stars because the lace fabric is a bit discomfort able under the arm. Besides the skirt is bigger than it looks at the picture.

I was soo worried about the dress not fitting, but it fit like a glove and looked beautiful!

I got the dress for my 30th birthday party and I had a horrible issue with the delivery, UPS didn't deliver the dress, I had to take off work to go pick it up at their warehouse, it was supers stressful, but the girls at RTR were very helpful and the dress looked amazing, I got so many compliments and at the end everything turned out great!

Feminine, fun, ballerina vibe and so beautiful!

Rented this dress for a work holiday party and it was amazing-- received compliments all night. I am a true size 6 and it fit perfectly- with such a full dress I was worried I might look like a cupcake, but the waist hit me in just the right place. I could have worn the 8 in a pinch, but the proportions of the 6 were more flattering. The length is definitely on the shorter side but I'm ok with leg showing and it was by no means indecent. Styled it with a messy side bun, the Elizabeth Cole Jet Ombré Bacall earrings from RTR, and nude patent d'orsay pumps. Definitely not a dress to sit in much-- I made sure to wait until we arrived at the hotel to put it on and had to have my husband fix the tulle after sitting for short periods of time, but otherwise the tulle wasn't too crazy. So sad to have to send it back!

Elegant, sexy and formal!

I wore this dress to a wedding in Pasadena. It was gorgeous! The lace is so intricate and the black beige combo was classic. This is true to size, my only advice is if you're 'hippy' you might feel even wider due to the big skirt.

I love me some lace!!!!

The dress is simply beautiful! I usually wear a size 0 in jeans(waist measures just under 25 inches for reference) From reading the reviews about the arm area being tight, I went with a size 2 in this dress. I'm glad I did! It fit perfectly!!! The dress gave it the perfect amount of room around the waist. The lace detail around the neck gives it such an elegant touch while the tulle made it fun and flirty. This dress caused some head turning!!! I didn't want to take it off at the end of the night!!! Warning!!! Be ready for compliments:)

Fabulous Frill

This was a cocktail dress wedding and this dress fit the part of an early afternoon shindig. It mixed the perfect bit of lace and tulle, black and nude. I think the fit ran a little small but by sizing up it solved the snug as a bug issue. I felt nude shoes looked way better than black because it elongated the legs and made me look taller and leaner. The dress was a little fluffy but very feminine. I received a lot of compliments and loved my frilly evening. I recommend this dress!! Loved it!

The size 6 fit perfectly! I loved the dress and received dozens of compliments. I am 5'3" and the dress came above my knees. The dress is pretty full. The top fit snug and made my waistline look great!

So many people came up to me just to say how pretty i looked in this dress!

Pros: the dress is so pretty! Almost everyone told me so... Cons: the tule is really puffy, make sure to tame it down before wearing it. It was also tight on the neck area so make sure to get it a size bigger.

Felt like a Ballerina!

So I got a 6 with an 8 as a backup just in case (knowing it would prob be too big but they were out of 4's). Tried both on, length varies widely by size. My 6 was pretty short, and the 8 seemed way too long, plus the lace wasn't sitting nicely. Wore the 6. Fit perfectly, true to size. Looks great with a skinny black belt over it. Honestly this may be the best dress I've ever worn. Great for holiday parties or nicer winter weddings. Do it, rent this dress!

Such a classy dress, you won't be disappointed!

I had sizes of 4 and 6, and oddly enough the 6 was shorter than the 4! I realized that the 6 had a longer torso portion than the 4, but was still shorter. Both fit great but in the end I went with my original 4. The lace was so detailed and the skirt made me feel like a ballerina. I was set apart from everyone at the event because of this unique dress. I received many compliments and it was great to dance in. It was beyond worth it!

Cute dress;lots of tulle

Wore this for my rehearsal dinner. There are lots of great reviews for this dress. It was not my favorite, but looks cute. I wore tights because I wore the dress in November and it was a little shorter than I expected. The tulle was extremely aggravating and was so staticky. That could have been partly because I wore tights. I got lots of compliments, and everyone loved the dress! I would have enjoyed wearing it in the summer without tights. The fit was true to size, and was comfortable. It's a great dress to rent, just not for the occasion of rehearsal dinner.

So many compliments! I

I wore it for Christmas Eve dinner with mine and my boyfriends family and ended with Midnight mass. The dress worked perfectly for all occasions. The only trouble was that it was a little short for family/church. I wore pantyhose to offset that. Also, the tulle blew in the wind so the pantyhose saved me a lot. The sizes run just a little big. Not noticeable.

This was the perfect ballerina inspired dress. The tutu is swishy and fabulous-compliments all night

The fit was true to size. It does have slimmer arm openings so a more athletic figure may have to size up due to that. It was very light weight and comfortable but dressy enough for an upscale NYE cocktail party. Wish I could keep it!

Fits like a glove and hugs all the right curves. It's feminine and sexy. A head turner for sure.

This dress fits like a glove. If you are at all worried about it being too tight then go up a size. It won't affect the look of the dress at all. I felt like a million bucks in this dress. The black lace and champagne tulle are the perfect feminine/sexy combo. I highly suggest giving this dress a try.

Today was a Fairytale

I wore this dress to a wedding and I loved it! I was complimented all night long. I was comfortable and it was easy to move. The only con was the tulle does get caught easily but other than that this dress was remarkable.

Stunning dress!

This dress was better than I imagined! I didn't want to send it back! It came out of the box looking perfect and the renting process was so simple. I felt like a ballerina and got a bunch of compliments throughout the night! I wore the 0 and it was a little big in the rib cage but nothing noticeable or bothersome. I will definitely be using rent the runway again.

Compliments all night long!

This dress was amazing!!! Everyone made a point to come ask me who it was and where I got it l. I felt beautiful all night long. It was a great mix of fun and sophistication. I would definitely rent this dress again (as would many of my friends after seeing it on me!!) I wore a size up from my normal size - the 4 fit perfectly but the tulle needed to be pressed or steamed and I didn't have time before my event. Luckily, even tho I had to size up, no one could tell it was a little loose

Original dress. I received many compliments.

I typically wear a 2, but the waist was right at the bottom of my rib cage which is broad. The 4 was much more comfortable. #remaxstateawards

So fun and I got compliments all night!

I'm SO glad I picked this dress. The only negative part about it is that it's VERY clingy/staticy when you receive it, but thank God for the reviews on this site so I knew to purchase Static Guard ahead of time. After using it, everything turned out great! I'm usually a 4 but there is a band in the dress that felt really tight on my lower ribcage so I went with the 6 and felt much more comfortable. I had so many people come up and compliment me on this dress, and it's super fun to dance in! :) This was my first RTR experience and I'll definitely be using it again.

Perfect party dress.

Like other reviewers, the lace on my dress wouldn't lay flat, but the dress was so pretty that I really didn't notice. The size 2 would've worked okay but it was a bit tight across my chest. I went with the size 4 because I was going to an office holiday party. Loved the dress and would rent again.

Really fun and unique dress!

When I first received the dress I was really worried that it would be too puffy, but once I tried it on it was perfect. The tulle was kinda annoying through the night- you need to be prepared to constantly straighten it out and fix it from scrunching up. Other than that I LOVED this dress, sad I had to give it back!

The ballerina skirt is very poofy. I couldn't wear this to the wedding I was attending, but I think it would look really cute on a younger girl for a party!

Such a cute feminine dress that stands out!

Wore this to my cousin's wedding at a vineyard and received so many compliments! I loved the look and feel of the dress. It was very comfortable. I was even able to pick up my two year old in it. The only weird part about it was sitting down on the tulle. I couldn't get to sit directly on the tulle since the dress was a bit short but lifting it up to sit felt like I was going to accidentally moon someone. Overall I loved the dress and would definitely rent from RTR for the next wedding.

I received so many compliments on this dress! It was different than every other gown there.

The skirt does get a little bunchy at times - I felt like I had to keep smoothing it out. And it's shorter- so if you're tall - this dress may not be for you. I'm only 5'3".

Cute Dress, But Probably Better on Someone Else

I knew going into it that squared-off armholes are never my best friend. That type of cut off has the tendency of making my arms look larger, and this dress was no exception. But I wanted to try because the dress is SO adorable on the website! Pros: can wear a normal bra; the design is unique and I got compliments on how adorable it was; pairs well with patterned black tights and black booties. Cons: the armhole thing; ran really small, as in I almost couldn't wear the bigger of the two sizes I ordered (granted, I know in December I was on the heavier size for me, but I have never been bigger than a 4, so for the 4 to be almost-doesn't-fit small was silly); the tulle got started tic-y and started to ride up. All in all, this was my least favorite dress that I've rented on RTR. I should have listened to my gut and not go with something I know doesn't work for my body type, no matter how cute it is on the model!

Everyone kept asking where I got this dress! Hit of the party and forgiving (ie. you can eat a lot!)

This dress was pretty tight under the arm pits. I have a fairly small chest and it was a bit tight, but it wasn't super tight at the waist. As the night went on, it got more comfortable (maybe bc I'm just not used to having lace under my arms so tight.) If you have a larger chest, I'd recommend getting a size up. I love that it is so forgiving on your lower stomach and lower body. Yay for eating and drinking without worrying about a pooch!
