Great dress...got tons of compliments throughout the night. Felt like the inside was ridding up throughout the night since the fabric on the skirt part is very thin. I suggest to hang the dress as soon as it comes in as the skirt part needs to be straighten out...it crumbles up inside the packaging. Otherwise it's pretty comfortable...I was working the entire night walking up and down and had no issues. Top part fits fitted to the body.

Perfect dress for a wedding!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was the first dress I rented from Rent The Runway and I was extremely happy with it! I wore the dress to a wedding and got so many compliments from different people throughout the night. If you are looking for an elegant dress this is perfect. It has a clean look but is also detailed! I ordered a size 6 and a size 8 and ended up going with the 8 because of the length (I am 5'7 and with heels I was 5'10-5'11.) I also read that other people thought it was tight under the arms and I would have to agree. I did however love the fact the waist was fitted and the bottom flared out! I have wide hips so I thought this dress was perfect for an hourglass figure. The only issues I had with the dress was the fact that the tulle was so "poofy" when I received the dress, so I used a lot of static guard to tame it. The other issue was every time I stood up I had to have someone fix the back of the dress and make sure the tulle wasn't scrunched. I also did notice a couple minor imperfections in the tulle which is most likely due to others wearing it before. I used fashion tape to hide the imperfections I saw so they were unnoticeable to others. Aside from having to fix the tulle I was extremely happy with this dress.

Felt like a princess! (And a ballerina!)

Size worn: 0
Rented for: Wedding
After three failed attempts at borrowing from RTR (all size issues,) I was hesitant to try AGAIN. However, the second I zipped this up I knew it was worth the wait. It fit like it was made custom for me! I didn't want to take it off--ever! I got tons of compliments and wish I could've kept it forever! It definitely runs true-to-size, although I'll agree with other reviews that the arm holes are juuuust big enough to not be restricting. I did steam out the tulle when it first arrived, and it's very delicate, but aside from that was completely amazing. I'm short, with a small athletic build (normally a size 0-1 in anything off-the-rack,) a small bust, and a Crossfit butt (hence all the fit issues with other dresses,) but this dress accommodated all of those things great! Completely recommend it!!!

Unique Beauty!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for an evening wedding, and it could not have been more perfect! This was also my first experience with RTR, and it was a complete success! I originally ordered the 4 and ordered the 6 as my backup – so thankful I got the 6, which is what I ended up wearing. I am fuller busted (34DD), and the 6 was very comfortable even with a regular bra. The length of the skirt's inner lining was pretty short, but the tulle layers were longer, making the overall dress length perfect for me (5'8") - even with heels. There were a couple tears in the tulle, but you could not tell at all with all the layers. I did have to steam the dress before wearing, but you can't expect a tulle dress to be shipped in a small box without it wrinkling. I took some others reviewer's advice and kept a small can of Static Guard in my bag to keep the tulle tamed. This is such a unique dress, and no one at the wedding wore anything even close to the same thing. I got compliments all night long from friends and from strangers too! I felt like a princess ballerina in my tulle skirt. So much fun to dance in too! Loved loved this dress!

Perfect ballerina dress for a wedding!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I have rented two similar Nha Khanh dresses in the past - I just love this style and wish I didn't have to give the dress back. I might have gained weight since the last rental (impossible!) but I do think this dress runs smaller than the other two I've rented (the Noir Timeless Love Gown and the Noir Timeless Love Dress - see? love this style!). The 4 was a bit tight but with a pair of spanx underneath, I was a-ok. The tulle is a bit poufy but that's the fun of the dress. Easy to dance in and the skirt was fun and floaty while I was getting my groove on. I didn't have any issues with the arm holes as mentioned in other reviews. Received so many compliments throughout the night - so pleased with this rental!

Fit like a glove. I'm a lot smaller on the top therefore the 8 worked out well. If you are larger on top I would recommend going up a size.

A beautiful dress!

Size worn: 0
Rented for: Formal Affair
I adored this dress. The 0 fit perfectly, so I went with that one. One thing I noticed was that the tulle on the 0 was different than the tulle on the 2. The 0 was finer and thinner; and more prone to static, while the 2's tulle was stiffer and straighter. I tried to steam it out, but it didn't make much of a difference. I personally liked the feel of the finer tulle, but that's personal preference. Overall, a super flattering dress that was perfect for dancing :) thanks RTR for a magical night!

A fun dress for a fun night!

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was awesome - super lightweight but the tulle added volume and shape. Rented both the 0 and the 2 but went with the 2 as the tulle was more shaped - seemed as if the 0 had been pressed incorrectly. Size wise they both fit great the 2 was also a bit longer. Would absolutely recommend!!

The dress was beautiful and I could move so well in it!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I would say that I'm normally a size 2-4, but the 4 wasn't available for my rental. The 2 fit though! A little snug with a bra on, but it worked! My only issue was that it was really short! The size 0 was longer than the 2! No biggie though, I purchased a nude slip to wear underneath the dress and it matched great. The dress already has a built in slip, but it wasn't long enough so the one I bought made it longer and it looked like it was a part of the dress! My dress arrived at 7:45pm on the arrival date so don't worry if yours hasn't arrived earlier in the day! Overall, I loved this dress and would definitely rent it again! I loved the dress and so did everyone else at the wedding! No one else had a dress that was even similar.

The number of compliments was never-ending!

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is so flattering and fun. What sold me on this dress over others is that I saw multiple reviews that said, "You feel like a princess!" And that couldn't be more accurate. It's also unique enough that people notice and can't help but compliment it! The only downside is that when you sit, the tutu flares out instead of in so just be sure not to flash anyone when you take a seat

I absolutely loved this dress and received so many compliments. I would definitely rent this dress again. It was so cute and comfortable. My only suggestion is to keep some sort of static guard on hand as the tulle is a little unruly at times. Besides that the dress was absolute perfection!! The size 6 fit me perfectly!

This dress was great for my girls weekend/reunion. As other reviewers mentioned, the tulle had to be smoothed out a bit from shipping but it was very easy to do so. Fit is true to size (I wore one size up than usual only because I've gained a few pesky pounds personally, not because of the dress itself) and I received tons of compliments.

I wouldn't say that it was my dress, unfortunately! The wedding was an absolute fairy tale though!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small

I received several compliments on this dress and it was beautiful, however when I put it on, it made me feel a bit like a fat cupcake! :( It may have been all of the Tulle! Also, the top part sort of rode up into my armpits, so it wasn't super comfortable on my arms. Although this dress was beautiful, I would not rent it again, I did not feel super confident/comfortable in it!

I wore this dress to my rehearsal dinner -- I have never gotten so many compliments on a dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress fit somewhere between true to size and small. The length was perfect, but, it was a little snug around the torso. It was very comfortable, and the dress itself was a hit. I loved how I looked and felt..I was on the hunt for a true "party dress" and this did the trick. I was so sad to have to send it back!

STUNNER

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is a true stunner! I wore it to a charity gala and received so many compliments, even the papparazzi were snapping away! It really accentuates the hips, so might not be a good choice for anyone self conscious of the hips. Very flattering for smaller chest. Fit was wonderful. I had to steam tulle skirt when I recieved (which I had expected). The dress itself is such a statement I went very simple for shoes and accessories. This was my first RTR experience and I'm hooked! xoxo

Lovely Dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
RTR was out of the size 4, so they sent a 6 and two other similar style dresses to try. I ended up wearing one of the replacements because I tend to dance outlandishly, so I needed something that wasn't quite so short. It is a knockout dress, though - really fun, flirty and COMFORTABLE. I thought all that lace might be itchy, and the larger size would be a problem but it was perfect.

Obsessed with this dress!!

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Wedding
It was such a prefect cocktail dress for an evening wedding in Brooklyn. Perfect portion of sexy and classy. The arm holes were a little tight but over all a comfortable and great dress to dance in. The tulle on my dress was fine, I did have to steam the bottom half due to wrinkles. I went with the 2 because I wanted it a little shorter and snug to my body. This was my first time renting, I was very pleased and will be renting again!!!

Beautiful dress. I didn't get any pictures of my wearing it that night. But I received compliments all night and people asking where I got it from. I am usually a size 0 which fit the best, but was tight around the neck. Ended up wearing the size 2 which fit well and was more comfortable at the neck. Loved the dress. Only complaint would be the "tutu" skirt was a little bit of a pain to fix everything after sitting down on it. Would definitely rent again though!

The dress made me feel like a princess! I loved the tulle skirt. It was shipped on time so I had no worries about the dress. It fit true to size. I ordered a two and a four and I wore the two which is my normal size. I didn't wear a bra with the dress, only "chicken cutlets", but I also could have worn it with a strapless bra. This was my first rent the runway experience, and I plan on using them again.

Loved this dress. I typically wear a size 6, but I ended up wearing the 8. The 6 was too tight on my chest. That being said, I wish I could've kept this dress -- I got so many compliments and wearing it was so much fun. Only complaint is that the tulle is pretty fragile - there was a small rip in the size 8. The bottom is so poofy though it doesn't really matter.

Bust (widest part): 37in Waist: 28in Hips: 41in Love the dress! Received so many compliments all night. So fun to dance and move around in. Because I'm very short and have a short torso, the midsection was a bit scrunched but no one noticed but me. The dress arrived wrinkled but I just left it hanging on the door overnight and it was perfect the next day. The skirt is very poofy but I love poofy so it was PERFECT! Absolutely felt like Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City. So glam and soft/romantic at the same time. Wouldn't hesitate to rent the dress again!
