One of the most fun dresses I've ever rented!!
I rented this for an early fall wedding in Savannah and had an absolute blast wearing!! It was so comfortable and conservative up top. The skirt flowed out but was a bit short so had to be careful on the dance floor. Would rent again in a heartbeat!!!

Everyone loved this dress!
I'm tall and my only concern was that it's shorter in the back. I also have a booty, so that might have contributed to the shorter in the back scenario. I'm typically a 4 or a 6 but decided to go with the 6 because it was a little bit longer. The underskirt is shorter than you think. Overall it's a really cute dress, super fun, and still classy.

Wedding Rehearsal
I wore this adorable dress for a wedding rehearsal cocktail party on the beach in Mexico. I received so many compliments and didn't want to send it back. It fit true to size and was VERY comfortable. Thank you, RTR!

Elegant Chic
Loved everything about this dress. It's elegant yet contemporary. It most definitely stands out and received endless compliments all night. The cut and style hug your waist in the right places. I don't recommend this dress for a tall person since I am 5'2 and the length was perfect-not too short just right.

Tons of Compliments
I rented this for a grand opening event and the dress was the star of the night. So many people complimented me on the dress. Its perfect for an hourglass figure. I found it to run a little smaller than this designer usually does but I am fairly big chested for my size. Definitely perfect for any affair.

Felt like a princess!!
I rented this dress for my bridal shower and absolutely loved it! I originally saw this dress at Saks and was able to try it on, so I knew that I loved it! The one at Saks was damaged, plus it retailed for $595, and I wasn't sure it was worth the money for a dress I would probably only wear once or twice. I was thrilled when I saw it on Rent The Runway! It worked out perfectly! I received tons of compliments! More then any other dress I've ever worn! I'm usually a 6 in dresses and sometimes a 4, but with this dress, the 6 fit great, if anything it was on the tighter side.

After party dress for my wedding
I'm a big fan of this brand and found it to be fun and flirty. I had several comments about how I was all legs. I enjoy having the conservative looking top with the ballerina feeling bottom. I danced, didn't worry about flashing anyone, and felt pretty and sexy all night. It was the perfect switch after dragging around a train all night for my wedding. Wore this till the sun came up.

I loved this dress! People asked me all night where I got the dress. First time using RTR !
The cut is flattering and the tulle was really cute and flirty. Im small chested 5'3, 125 lbs. The tulle was in good shape even out of the bag. Loved it and wanted to keep it =)

I was hesitant about this dress as it's not my typical style however I got tons of compliments. I wore it to a black tie optional charity event -- big hit! My first RTR was a success! Can't wait to do it again!

I felt beautiful!!
I rented this dress for my junior homecoming dance, and I wish I could have kept it!! I ordered both a 4 and a 6. The 4 was tighter in the waist, arm holes, and the chest area. The 6 was better in the waist and arms, but the chest area was slightly stretched out I think from a previous renter. In the end I went with the 6 anyway. The length of the skirt concerned me at first because of reviews I had read, but I found the length to be fine. The tulle did get kind of bunched up when I sat down, but I danced for the majority of the night so it ended up not being a problem. I hate wearing strapless bras, so I wore a regular nude colored bra underneath and the black lace did a nice job of hiding the straps! The back of this dress is absolutely gorgeous too. This was my first rental and I'm so glad I didn't have to splurge on a hoco dress!!! Will definitely be using RTR again!

The dress fit true to size. I received many compliments. I would agree with the other reviews that it was a tad shorter than I anticipated but not inappropriately so IMO. Wish I owned this dress!

Perfect for my short height!
I'm 5' tall and this little thing was incredibly cute and flirty. It hits just above my knees. I have a large bust so this 8 was a little tight in the chest but I was able to get into it. I also love that I could wear a normal bra underneath. I received lots of ooohs and ahhhs and the pouf of the skirt helped balance my wider top perfectly.

Perfect for a trendy wedding!
I absolutely loved this dress. It was different, flirty and fun, not too short and very comfortable (sometimes tulle isn't). I found that it was very tight in the chest area, but I am a bit large up there and wore a regular bra, so I can't complain too much. The zipper was as hard to zip as everyone said, but I also have broad shoulders and a wider ribcage, so this might be why it was so tight on me. This caused a slight panic especially when I realized it was the larger of the 2 sizes that I could not zip, I'm normally a 4 but I wore the 6 . I'm 5'4, 125# and 34DD. Definitely rent this dress!

The fit was good. The only thing that was different was the color of the bottom in the picture in RTR it looks more off white but when received it was more of a tan other that that it was perfect.

I originally ordered size 0 and it was too short because I was wearing heels but the 2 fit perfectly. I love that they give you another size for no charge because it saved my life for the wedding!

Customer service was impeccable!!!
This dress fit true to size. My daughter is 5'5" and smaller on top than on the bottom. Typically wears a size 0 or xsmall. This dress fit like a glove and was comfortable to wear. She received tons of compliments at homecoming, and felt like a million bucks walking into the dance!! Mother of the year that I am, accidentally ordered this dress for a week later than we actually needed it. When I called customer service wondering where my dress was, the service rep kindly let me know that it was ordered for the next week. I needed it literally in a day and a half, so thinking there's no way they could get the dress to me, I asked if she could cancel the order, she told me she'd have the dresses to me by Saturday at 1:00!! Are you kidding me?!?...that was a huge life and time saver for me!! The dresses were here by 12:00!!! We will be a repeat customer for sure!! Thank you RTR for your amazing customer service!!!

beautiful but too short
Dress was super comfy. The 0 fit fine but the dress is SO SHORT I went with the 2 just for any added length it gave. I am 5'7 and about 115 and have a long torse. This dress was so short it barely covered what it was supposed to. The picture also gives the impression the tulle is very thick, but its only actually like 2 layers and then a very soft silky slip/skirt under that which is even shorter than the tulle. Loved this dress but if you've got long legs and torso it could be a problem for you.

Beautiful and comfortable!
This dress was great and would rent it again in a heartbeat! The underlay is nude with spaghetti straps, the black lace on top is dense enough that it didn't require a strapless bra. The dress was a little short so just be aware if you're dropping it like its hot.

Wore to a dance company's gala
I would have worn the 6, which was snug but fit nicely, if the crinoline hadn't been wrinkled. I ended up in the 8 which fit pretty well. Loved the effect of the tulle since I wore this to the annual gala of a dance company.

Super fun and different dress! The poof at the bottom was large and in charge - but made the dress. I was so comfortable dancing. It fit true to size, I was able to wear a bra and the length was perfect too!

I rented this dress form my HS daughter. The dress was a hit. She wore it for it for a party. She tells me it was very comfortable. She is a size 0 so basically there was no issue with the size. The length of dress was perfect as well. It was so unique and different! Many compliments! Loved it!!!! The lace detail is beautiful and she said she felt like a ballerina. Will def. rent it again.

Hem was inside out on the inner layer which was odd. You couldn't really tell under the tulle but it would have bothered me more if I owned it... Cute , fun dress.

so fun to wear!
I usually wear a 6 but ordered the 4 as well because it is a fit and flare...and my waist is much smaller than my hips! The 4 fit perfectly. This is such a fun dress to wear and you will get a ton of compliments. Its is more poufy feeling than looking. You will want to fluff it up and dance- I know I did!

Perfect party dress!
This was my first time using RTR. Great experience! Loved this dress. The size 4 fit perfectly and it was very comfortable. The armholes were a little high. But other than that it was the perfect dress for a cocktail party or semi-formal wedding.
