So pretty!
This dress was a little roomy in the bust, but not too much, I'm also very small so it could just be me! Overall I really enjoyed this dress. I wore it to take some senior pictures and it photographs beautifully! The tulle is so gorgeous, and the lace isn't itchy or over the top. It's a very light and airy dress, which made it very comfortable to wear. I would definitely rent this again for another occasion as it is very versatile!

So many compliments! Beautiful fit, unique and fun dress. I ordered the 2 and 4, but wore the 4.
I can sometimes were a 2, but I definitely needed the 4. This is a one of kind dress, and received so many compliments! This was my first time using the service, it was a hit! Very pleased.

Graduation party choice. Compliments all night!
Worn for my graduation party. Runs true to size, but is a bit short, even though I am 5'6". Can't imagine the fit on taller girls. I ended up wearing the 12 instead of 10.

Such a fun dress!
Dress fit wonderfully! I got so many compliments all night. Only downfall was that the skirt got pretty staticky, but nothing some static spray couldn't take care of. Beautiful, fun dress and would definitely wear it again!

I felt like a princess ballerina. This dress was amazing, and wished i could keep it.
The fit was a little tight around the chest area- maybe if you have a smaller chest this will be better for you. Go a size up if you have a bigger chest .But moved so fluidly with no restriction and comfortable when dancing.

Perfect ballerina inspired dress to wear to the ballet!
The dress is very delicate, but beautiful in person. There isn't any spandex in the bodice so be sure to order the right size, I had put on some weight and it was a struggle to zip it up! But that's not the dress' fault! It is short, but great if you want to show off your legs. I loved that I could wear a normal, nude colored bra and it didn't show at all. But the best part was my daughters reaction to how I looked in the dress, it made The Nutcracker all the more magical. The dress did arrive 2 days late due to holiday shipping/crazy winter storm madness so my advice would just to be aware of that if you're ordering for a holiday. I had time so it wasn't a big deal. Overall the experience was great and I will definitely use RTR again!

I LOVED this dress! Wore it for a work holiday party and it was perfect
This dress was the perfect dress for a work holiday party- I got so many compliments! I got a size 0 and size 2, but for some reason the tool at the bottom of each dress were different colors. Luckily the 0 fit me because I tried the 2 on and the color of the tool was pretty see-through and I didn't like it. However, I LOVED the color and fit of the 0 so I was happy it fit. Perfect length for me because I am short. Did not want to send it back!

Both sizes fit. The size 4 fit better in my bust area but the dress was too short. Went with the size 6 for the length. Order up for the length if you are average height or taller.

Fancy Ballerina
This is the kind of dress little girls would love. You truly feel a little magical with the tulle. The lace looks amazing with the flesh colored slip underneath. I wore a strapless bra because of the spaghetti straps of the underneath slip. I had to size up because I could not sip up the smaller size around my back. If you let it hang overnight the poofiness will settle down a bit.

New Year's Day party.
Really pretty, good details. Photographs better than I think I looked. All the reviews said it was short - I'm 5'1' so I kind of balk when people say something is short; this was short however. Very light, stayed in place.

Sooo many compliments!!
I ordered the 0 and had the 2 sent as a back up because of some reviews but the 0 fit almost perfect. The lace was a little tight around the arms and the neck went higher than I anticipated but everything else fit perfectly. The waist hit more of a peplum height which threw me off but only because I wasn't expecting that. Overall the fit was flattering and I felt amazing and I received tons of compliments all night. I ended up winning a "Best Dressed" award too!

Unfortunately too long for me!
I really wanted to wear this one. My daughter had a similar dress (she's 2) and we were supposed to match... I'm just 5'2" with a short torso (I think that's the main problem) and it was TOO much fabric. It literally swallowed up my frame. However I think if I didn't have curves maybe the tulle would have sat better, but who knows. Not good for "well endowed" chests and Short torsos. Fit was true to size though - 0 fit. 2 was way too big.

Ballerina Princess!
I am petite with an athletic build, and this dress fit great! I wore it to see the Nutcracker and to dinner and drinks after. The dress was so pretty and comfortable, I didn't want to take it off. The only con was the tulle on the skirt developed a lot of static cling (I live in a cold, dry, climate). It stuck to everything, from my scarf to the table linens, so I had to be careful everything was pulled down into place while standing. I would highly recommend this dress for a fun night out!

My favorite dress EVER!
I absolutely loved this dress. If you are a little bustier, I would recommend maybe a size up. The zipper was a little difficult to close but I made it happen. I would highly recommend this. I rented 4 dresses for a photoshoot and this was by far my favorite.

Gorgeous dress!!!
The dress was so beautiful. I rented it for my husband's company Christmas party. I ordered a 0 and a 2. They both fit very similarly, but I went with the 0, because the tulle was flatter. The tulle on the 2 was really bunched up at the bottom. I steamed it, which helped a bit, but the 0 looked better overall. I would definitely recommend taking the dress out the night before and plan on steaming the skirt. My only complaint was the static!!! It might have been because it was very cold and dry that night, but the skirt and the underlay kept getting super staticky. It wasn't that big of a deal though. The dress is definitely a show-stopper. Elegant and girly. I wish I could have kept it. The lace was beautiful and very classy looking. Overall gorgeous dress. Loved it!

The Dress Was Better Than The Christmas Party!
This dress was gorgeous and I felt gorgeous in it! I got so many compliments throughout the evening - it was just so much fun to wear! The neck felt tight at first and usually I don't like anything too high up on my neck, but I forgot about it after a while. I'm bummed that I have to give the dress back -I loved it!!

I ordered this dress as a backup and that being said I never wore it but tried it on for friends to decide between the two. Sorry did not take a picture. But this dress is comfortable, cute and fun. I will definitely rent this again in the future and wear it!

I LOOOVED this dress!!! First time renter! Wore it for my work Christmas party- A black tie event.
Fell in love with this dress when I saw it on the site. Loved that there were two sizes sent to you. I ordered a size 10 and my back up was a size 12. I wore the size 12 as I found the dress ran small even though reviews said it was true to size. I always seem to have issues with semi-fitted at waist dresses with zippers, I had the same issues with this one as well. I am short 5'4.....have a thick waist, wide back and broad shoulders. Once dress was on, fit well and I felt beautiful in it. Loved the tulle, It was a little short but worked for my height. Did require some adjusting when I got up from my seat. Had many compliments and there was no other dress like it there!

My fav dress so far
First of all, this dress lining is short! The tulle is long enough to cover the lining but it barely covers butt cheeks short. They being said it was fun and flirty and I got so many compliments all night. Nothing like I've worn before and I wish I could wear all the time.

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.

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.
