The dress is gorgeous and it very elegant. It does suck you in the tummy area and flares out at the bottom which is great for those with a fuller thigh such as myself. But, also please pay attention to the back make sure that you always fluff it out when you sit down and stand up because the tulle will stick to your bottom.

I needed a dress for an industry Awards Gala....I co-host the evening presenting the awards, so I wanted something that stood out, but yet didn't make me feel self conscience. This dress was great. I am 5'4 and I was concerned that the dress would be too short (based on the picture), but apparently the model is 6' tall. It was actually a great length and was quite flattering. It made my waist look small and hid my trouble area (tummy). I didn't have an issue with the size of the arm holes and I felt very comfortable in the dress all night! I would definitely recommend this dress!

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.

The only con was the tulle was a little wrinkled underneath. I would recommend getting a full day in advance of the event to that you can steam it and let it hang overnight to get the wrinkles out.

I usually wear an 8 but the rib/chest and underarm areas were tight so the 10 was much more comfortable. I wore this to my boyfriend's work holiday party and received compliments all night - definitely the best dress in the room! I would rent this again in a heartbeat.

Bell of the Ball!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I read through everyone's reviews and wanted to get an 8 and a 10. The 10s were out of stock so I got a 6. Thankfully, the 8 fit like a glove because the 6 was super short. The 8 wasn't too short and the slip inside really helped. Everyone kept calling me a ballerina and everyone loved the dress! It was great for dancing, the lace is really flattering and tailors the waist. I have wide ribs and, because this zips low in the back, it was an easy fit.

fit true to size, dress is pretty thin so I recommend layering on top of the dress if you plan on wearing it in the winter. it would be perfect for spring or summer events, I also found the skirt to be a little bit short but if you wear one of those skirt shorts underneath or wear leggings with the dress should be no problem. I really enjoyed this dress and did not want to take it off! it's super comfy and fun to wear!

Fit is true to size. Some of the tulle was coming loose from the waist, but nothing a little fashion tape can't fix. the skirt is also quite a bit fluffier than it appears, but that was the look I was going for. Overall, a great dress and I got tons of compliments on it. Would definitely recommend!

This was my first experience with RTR. I was very happy with the dress and sad to return it. It was playful and comfortable but dressy enough for the formal event I attended. I'm short and busty and don't enjoy falling out of a dress--so the lacy overlay and wide skirt were perfect for keeping things classy. I wore black tights with it.

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.

This dress is a true show stopper but comfortable enough to dance the night away. Make sure to get it out of the box and hang it up ASAP. To make sure the tulle laid right I steamed it simply by shutting the door and not running the fan when I took a shower. The fit runs true to size and it's lined so you can wear any undies or bra you want. Would rent again and again!

I absolutely loved wearing this unique dress to my company's annual winter formal! At 5'8 I was originally concerned about other reviews which said the dress was short, but I found the length to still be appropriate. However I would highly recommend steaming the tulle beforehand which I thought helped tame the poof and increase the length. My normal size fit perfectly and the dress was a hit - one of the event staff even pulled me aside to say how much her & her team loved the dress! Thanks RTR!

Unique and gorgeous in a room of off the hanger Macy's dresses

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for my annual holiday party, which I have been attending for 9 years... so needless to say, every year coming up with another fantastic look takes effort! This is the second year I rented my dress, and I was again, not at all disappointed! The dress is so unique in a room full of the same old hats.. and I actually had a couple of women tell me they ALMOST rented the same dress but got nervous and decided on another... I think the fear comes from the length. At my age I do have to careful that I am not showing too much leg for whats appropriate I suppose, but since I am proud of my time in the gym I didn't mind it. The skirt also has a built in slip that stays down, so I wasnt shy on the dance floor either. I wore the 4, as the 2 was a little tight across the back and chest on me. The only reason I gave the dress 4 stars is that when it arrived the tulle was ripped from the seam in two places and my mother had to tack it up. Too much wear, I think this one might need to be retired soon... but I am very glad I got to wear it before it is sent to pasture!!

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.

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!

I have a smaller chest but I am curvy on the bottom. The size 4 fit perfect up top but the skirt was little short in the back. So glad I read the reviews beforehand and brought the static guard, it really helped with getting the tulle under control.

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.

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

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Wedding
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!

The fit was spot on! The top around the shoulders was a little loose and the lace at the top didn't stand up like the model picture, but that was ok. I'm 5'0" and this dress hit right above my knee so it was the perfect length for me and I used Spanx to smooth out all the rest! lol

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!

Both sizes would've worked, but I chose the smaller size to be more form fitted - the larger size would've been a bit longer. The alternate size had a much fluffier skirt, so this dress may be different depending on how many times it's been rented out. Overall, 10/10 would rent again.

A fun rock & roll wedding with a great dress and purse to match!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I typically wear a size 4, but ended up wearing my back-up size 6. The 4 was significantly shorter than the 6. I also needed to steam the tulle as it was a bit bunched and wrinkled upon arrival. I will say the tulle sticks to itself, I found myself (and my friends) smoothing down the backside after standing up from my chair. No big deal! It was recommended to wear a strapless bra with this dress, but I wore a nude bra and it worked perfectly fine and it wasn't visible. Dress is very flattering and certainly a showstopper. Lots of compliments! I paired it with the "Ideal Husband" Kate Spade book clutch.

I chose this dress to wear for our friend's wedding. I absolutely loved the styled and fit. I received so many compliments throughout the event. It was fun to wear! I do recommend using a bit of Static Guard on the tulle skirt. It is short, so having static cling would not make it easy to move around in without showing off more than you intended.

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!!!
