Lovely for a formal beach wedding!
I got this for a formal beach wedding in Florida! I was worried about it not fitting my ribcage and waist, so I got a size 2 and a size 4. The size 4 ended up being too big in the chest, so I went with the 2 instead. It was snug around the ribcage and waist, but it was a much better situation at the neckline. Lovely dress, but it was starting to see some wear in the black sparkle details, some of which were peeling off. I doubt anyone but myself noticed.

Perfect gown for black-tie optional.
Rented this for a friend's black tie optional wedding and it was the perfect level of formality- didn't look over the top next to cocktail dresses, but was still long and beautiful enough next to true gowns. The fabric is gorgeous and flowy. Length was perfect at 5'7" with 3 inch heels.

Good for formal event
Fit well and was very pretty, however the particular dress that I wore, I could tell that it had been worn many many times... There was some minor tearing around the zipper area. Also I definitely did not fill out the top of the dress, but I didn't feel like I was going to 'slip out' either. Otherwise great dress, got lots of compliments

Made me look tall and elegant and it was a great fit. Makes you look slender.
I'm 5'1 (weigh about 134) and it fits me perfectly. A little loose on top. and you'll definitely need dress tape to tape the cleavage area so there is no accidental nip-slip. This was my first rent the runway transaction and it was perfect. I was cutting it close getting the dress the day before the wedding, but it came on time, and it was great. I love the color, a lovely rich purple with the shiny bright black details. I got tons of compliments and it definitely made me feel pretty and that it was dressy enough for a wedding.

Perfect for February Beach Wedding
I wore his to a friends wedding on the beach in the Keys in February and it was perfect. It made me feel sexy (which doesn't happen often for this mother of 2) without making me feel foolish. The 6 fit a little better except right around the bust where it was a little too tight. I didn't want to be uncomfortable all night so I opted to size up. I would definitely recommend this.

Able to wear a pretty dress during pregnancy.
Rented this dress because it was located in the "bump friendly" category on RTR and I'm currently 6.5 months pregnant. My regular size is about 0-2 (5'5, 120lbs and I've gained about 25lbs so far), so I rented a size 8 and it fit PERFECTLY over my midsection (which is...sizeable). So whatever size you are, go up by 4-6 sizes, and the bump friendly idea works! Allowed me to wear a really pretty dress to a fancy party and not have to spend hundreds on a style or size I wouldn't typically wear post-partum. 4 stars instead of 5 because the material was slightly flimsy and there was a very small water stain on the front skirt (that you couldn't really see with the folds, so it wasn't a big deal).

i wore this to an indian wedding. it was very appropriate, great color, beautiful fabric
the 2P fit me really well. I'm petite but curvy. i thought it was going to be too much *dress* for me, but the material is very light. i thought it would be thicker. i got a ton of compliments at the wedding and on facebook. i would definitely recommend this dress. i imagine you have to be relatively flat chested (as i am). it goes very low in the front. it's sexy but not too provocative. it is snug at the higher waist, so order your size and a size up (only the 2p was available for me and it worked!)

Pretty dress, but didn't work for me :(
The bodice of the dress fit me perfectly, but I wasn't able to zip it past my rib cage. I have a broader back with an athletic shape, and typically have issues with dresses in that area. Also, all the reviews regarding the bust area are true, do not rent this dress without some fashion tape. I ended up returning it because it didn't work for my build.

Show stopping!
I absolutely loved this dress for a friend's summer wedding! I got so many compliments all day/night. I felt glamorous with how full and flowy the skirt was, paired with the deep v-neck. I was a little overdressed and wore it with flat sandals to dress it down but had no regrets! I usually wear a 0 and they were out of my backup size 2, so I took a gamble and it worked out, despite the band around the rib cage being too tight. Who needs oxygen when you feel like a princess ;) I have no idea how I didn't get a picture of myself in this dress!

I loved the dress and although I was in a wheelchair, I felt beautiful all night!
The dress fit well but, since I am full busted, I had to zip the dress first, before putting my girls back in. This dress was made for smaller chests girls. I read how some women taped themselves in. I did as well, but they were secured that I didn't need the tape. The dress looks 500% better in real life. It's an amazing dress that my husband is still talking about.

Beautiful and flattering dress!
Once the dress was on it fit perfectly, but the zipper was a little difficult. I ordered my normal size (4R) and then one size up (6R). The 6R had the same zipper issues, but with a few tries they both zipped up. I ended up wearing the 4R and was very comfortable throughout the evening. I received many compliments and would definitely rent this dress again.

Beautiful dress!
I really liked this dress! The color was true to how it looks online, and it is beautiful and flowy. However, I would actually suggest ordering a size up for your backup dress. There is a band/"belt" that rests directly on the ribcage and does not have any give. I am usually exactly a size 4, and this was very fitted on me. I had to get help from my husband to zip the dress up since the zipper is on the side. The dress won't look good if this band is too tight, and you will definitely not be comfortable. Other than that, the length was great with 4" heels, and I got many compliments on it.

This is definitely low cut. The top was a little looser than expected, so I used duct tape to hold everything in place. The dress drapes really nicely and was perfect for the evening.

Dress was gorgeous!!!
The dress was very comfortable and very fun to wear. I probably needed the 2R since the top was a bit large. Definitely needed fashion tape to secure the top :)! Other than that, awesome dress and would rent it again!

Gorgeous dress
Great for a gala. Very low cut as you can see in the picture. Both sized fit but decided to go with the one that skimmed my curves rather than really accentuating as the 6 did.

Great Mardi Gras dress! Flattering fit and comfortable.
The low cut neckline makes pulling off a bra difficult. Advice: nix the bra if you can. In this case, it's much more flattering to embrace the plunge.

Gorgeous purple color!
I rented this dress for an early fall wedding and couldn't have been more pleased! I wore the 4L with 4-inch heels and the length was perfect - however if the 4R had been available I think I would have been just as pleased. With the help of fashion tape the dress remained secure and comfortable for the duration of the night. The color is stunning and style flattering - especially the back. Can't wait to rent this dress again!

Perfect for a summer wedding
I ordered this as a back up and it ended up being a hit! I got a lot of compliments on this. I was worried about the neckline so I had dress tape on hand, but the fit on the top was tight enough that it wasn't really needed. If you are taller than 5'6" I recommend ordering a tall. They only had a regular when I ordered this and with 2.5 inch heels the it was just a touch too short.

Perfect for a formal awards dinner, glam without being too showy.
I said the dress runs true to size but if you are on the shorter side, the straps will probably be too long for you, and if you have a broad rib cage it might be a little snug. Per other RTR reviews, I ended up pinning the straps in the back to get it to fit my shorter torso. I also used a lot of fashion tape to make sure everything stayed put. I have a broad rib cage, and while the 4 zipped, I opted to go with the 6 for a little extra room (plus both sizes required pinning the straps anyway so it ended up being almost a custom fit). The dress barely hit the floor so the long length worked (maybe just a tad long) for my 5'4 frame with 5" heels. The dress was perfect for the occasion but it definitely required a little work to pull off.

I wore this to my brother-in-law's wedding and received compliments from young to old!
I actually almost had to wear the 6R that I also rented because the dress was a little snug around my ribcage and the zipper was a little worn. I'm just about 5'9, so the 6R would have been slightly too short with my 3 inch heels. Luckily, I got the zipper up and it looked perfect! Although I was nervous it may be a little risqué for a family wedding, my 34b/c's had enough coverage to look sexy yet sophisticated. No bra, but I did wear petals to ensure nothing was showing through on the chest. All and all, I felt great and received compliments the entire night! Thanks RTR;)

Beautiful dress! Not what I expected!
The dress I originally ordered was not available so I was contacted 2 days before my event by RTR. The consultant helped me select this dress and I have to say I was skeptical. However, the dress fit perfectly, was gorgeous, and turned out to be better than the original dress I selected for my semi-formal event. I got many compliments on it, it fits true to size, and I would definitely wear it again if I had the opportunity!

Amazing color!
My only complaint is that the dress is short and I had to wear it with sandals. I am 5'4" so normally that is not an issue with long dresses, but it was for this one. But the color was beautiful! The front is low cut, so fabric tape was a huge help!

This dress was too big
This dress was beautiful in the pictures but when I put it on, I didn't like it. It was way too big in the skirt and chest. I'm normally a 2 or a 4 and the 2 was huge. The flowery pattern was also kind of cheap looking when you saw it up close. There were a lot of threads coming out and parts of the flowery pattern looked like they were being pulled out. The purple is a beautiful color, not too bright, whiz I was worried about, but it was too big on me

Great night out.
The dress was beautiful and I was excited to wear it. The length of the dress was great and the waist fit perfectly. Unfortunately, although I am not typically considered broad/full chested, it was too tight in my ribcage and I had to return it unworn.
