Unflattering for tummy, matronly?
I rented this for a wedding shower, but it was very tight and hugged my mom-tummy in an unflattering way (even with Spanx). I loved this dress in the pictures, but when I put it on, it felt matronly, and it and like it would be hot and uncomfortable for an afternoon outdoor wedding shower event. Wish I had loved it, but it didn't work.

Even while pregnant....
I wore this dress while four months pregnant - and not a small four months. Sized one size up from my normal size, and it fit like a dream. Everyone at the wedding was impressed. Thick fabric, great for no spanx and cooler weather. Wore regular bra - also great while pregnant. Pattern was pretty but classy. Definitely navy based. Cons - lining was coming apart and when going to the bathroom, you definitely had to take some time to fix the lining. Also the slit curled in some, but it wasn't a big deal. I hate to guess, but I think you could wear into month five of pregnancy - at a certain point the boob/bump ratio will really look off (instead of just slightly).

Form fitting and flattering
Great print, flattering. Wore for a charity event and felt like I was dressed appropriately as some people were in cocktail attire and some were business casual. Thick, very tight. It hit me around knee length so I did feel a little restricted in my movement. My only complaint is that around the tummy area, the pattern on the size 4 is a little darker, making it look like there was a shadow from my stomach bulging were there wasn't. I know this is minor, but it did irk me a little bit. Overall a great dress.

Very fitted and shows your curves
I rented a few dresses to wear to a menswear stylist conference . I had to send the dresses to the hotel since it was last minute. Thankfully I did because the dress I brought with me had a hem come loose. I tried on This dress. At first I thought it wouldn't fit , but I squeezed in! I probably would have chosen a 6 but they didn't have it available . The dress sucks you in pretty nicely or at least it makes you feel that way. I have a toddler and my tummy doesn't always look so great but I felt it smoothed me out where I needed it and I felt great . Tomorrow I have another dress to try ... We shall see how that goes !

Pretty dress but a bit frustrating
Dress was smaller than I anticipated and fit strangely. If you have a long torso, choose another dress. The dress was pretty and good for my event, but I would not rent again. The dress also smelled funny, and had three large holes along both sides that I had to sew up before I could wear it! Not good

Love this dress!
Very comfy dress. Super durable material with a lot of stretch. My only issue with it was the arms. I have larger upper arms so it did kind of dig into them if my arms were forward in anyway. But aside from that, I love everything about the dress.

Fun day with a dear friend.
I'm tall. 5'10" and 145 pounds. I carry a little weight in my hips. As you can see in pic, this dress rode up like crazy! I was either too hippy or too long so the hips hit too high. It was not my most favorite dress. I wouldn't have bought it if I tried it on in a dressing room. Great for very straight women and not so tall.

Very tight.
Either this was made to be a body con dress or it runs very small. Or maybe it's just not meant for anything other than going out. Since it had a longer length, I rented my normal size for work. My fiancé said I could get away with it but I would have felt paranoid all day. It was very tight in the stomach and butt. I personally don't like skirts for work that clearly cling and hug the butt and this one without a doubt is a form fitting curve hugger. Either go up a size or only rent it for occasions where you're okay with everyone checking out your booty :-)

Love rent the runway
This dress was awesome because it's such a thick fabric that it helps to suck in the tummy area. When walking, it really hikes up a lot so unfortunately I was pulling the dress down quite a bit.

Alternate dress, but loved it!
This dress was overnighted to me after my 1st choice was stained, and I loved it! Thanks Justine at customer service! The 2 was a great fit, but I had trouble zipping it up so I wore the 4, which also fit perfectly. It's a thick material, and good for cooler weather. I was comfortable all day in this dress and didn't need any accessories, as the dress speaks for itself! Another RTR hit!

Very tight fit but beautiful print!
I wasn't able to wear the dress as it had a hole in the hip area. The colors on the dress were much more vibrant in person and the print was beautiful. I do have fuller hips and the 6 was very snug, if I had needed to walk much I would have been a tad uncomfortable. Fabric has some stretch. I may rent again for another event in the future.

I rented this for a work event. The fit was perfect. The material on this dress is amazing. It really holds it all in. I ended up not wearing it only because my function was cancelled. I would rent this again with no reservations.

So flattering! I felt beautiful! Be the best dressed!
Love this dress. I was skeptical but it's so much prettier in person. Color is so vibrant. The material is so thick and heavy that it's extremely flattering on my problem tummy. The cut, everything is awesome about it. Would definitely rent again. I was the best dressed at myhigh school reunion cocktail party & night out

Beautiful dress but runs very small
This dress is gorgeous. The colors are vibrant and definitely make a statement. The dress is extremely tight, however. I have a large chest and the size 2 would not even go over my shoulders. Dress has no give but once on its on, beautiful!

AMAZING sheath dress sucks everything in!!
I want this dress. I wore this to a bridal luncheon and got dozens of compliments. Comfortable but quite snug. I wouldn't recommend for dancing or lots of movement because the tight fit restricts. It's definitely been worn several times, but not noticeable when on. Loved and my hubby did too! I'm a 32E and I could wear a normal bra! Score!!

Unimpressed
Rented this for work. I was traveling abroad and literally was unable to zip this up myself. Had to wear a blazer all day. Slip was odd and thick fabric bunched up. Unimpressed.

Unfortunately couldn't wear too tight
I am usually a size 0 and it was very snug- too snug to the point of couldn't breath Also the fabric was a little heavy and uncomfortable I liked the color and style but wish it would have worked out If I was to rent again I would order the 2 and maybe for a bit so hot day

Great print and form-fitting sheath
This was a great dress for dinner with friends in Vegas. It seemed like it was cut for those with more curves and made it fit unevenly in the hip area for me. Lots of compliments!

Just Meh.
I was shocked at how washed out he colors were in this dress. I couldn't tell if it just needed to be retired or it was just the print. I sized up but wished I didn't because there was extra fabric around my midsection. Overall, not a favorite.

I ordered this dress as part of my Unlimited subscription, and it didn't fit well on me at all. It was too baggy, and the color definitely wasn't as vibrant as it is shown on the model.

Go for it!
Loved this rental. I rented it because people said that it runs large and I just had a baby. I'm usually a 10 but, am a 12 these days to accommodate for my "new body". Fit like a glove with the perfect amount of stretch. The colors aren't as bright as the picture which is good given the intensity of the pattern.

Cute day-to-night dress
This is definitely a stretchy, form fitting dress but conservative enough to be worn to work. It's a good day-to-night dress as I had to attend an awards dinner right after work. The ribbons are navy blue, not black as it appears on the model. I had a hard time zipping it up near the ribbons. It definitely sucks you in! I got a 4 and 2 (as my backup) and wore the size 4 which felt fine but I think I probably would've been more comfortable in a 6 due to the thickness of the fabric. If you have hips this dress definitely rides up. I had to keep pulling it down.

Great bright colors for an early spring wedding!
It is a very tight fit. The fabric is incredibly stretchy but I definitely had to go a size up to 8 from my usual 6. Slimming and elegant fit with young bright colors! Perfect for a early spring afternoon wedding!

Got tons of compliments on this dress and I am typically not a pattern person!
Dress was gorgeous. The material was thick and a tad scratchy however this is a slip underneath so it was not an issue. The material did have a slight stretch to it but was very fitted. Order a size up if you are curvy.

The print of the dress is beautiful. The colors were perfect for Easter weekend!
The dress was not as pictured in the description. The back of the dress on the website does not have a split in the back. However the one I received had a split. I thought this dress was the same as the Aqua Maze dress on Nicole Miller's website. The split started to curl inside as I walked. I received sizes 4 & 6. Normally I wear a size 4, maybe the dress is for someone with smaller hips than mine. The 6 did not fit as snugly as the 4 and still had the split curling issue. I do not recommend this dress if you have hips!

Not the fabric I was anticipating - lesson learned: read the fabric description!
The fabric of the dress was incredibly stiff (felt like canvas) whereas I was expecting it to be more of a soft knit spandex. I didn't end up wearing it.
