Pretty dress, but didn't work for my body :(

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I thought this lovely dress would be ideal for a White Party in the Botanical Gardens. Sadly it was much too long on me (only 5' tall). Also the fabric had no give so I couldn't zip it up around my bust and the waistline looked out of proportion. Though I didn't wear it for the function, I can say that it is well-made and the details make this dress far prettier in person than in the pictures.

beautiful but didn't wear it

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
this dress is beautiful, but it just wasn't as flattering as the other dress I rented (a Lilly Pulitzer). It fit nicely, but I think a 6 would have been better. I ordered a 4 and a 2 as a backup for my bridal shower, the 4 barely zipped and the pleats in the front pulled a little. I am a TTS 4. I ended up wearing it out to dinner for my dad's birthday because I had it but I did not wear it to my shower. I would recommend this dress to girls who are a bit thinner than me (and maybe less busty?). Definitely order your regular size and then a size up.

Beautiful White Dress

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I loved this dress, the detail is hard to see in the picture, but it is really beautiful in person. I can wear a two or four typically, and went with the 40 in this one. I am smaller in the chest and so didn't need a bra as that is where the dress is quite fitted. It is a perfect summery white dress!

Beautiful, but too small

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I usually wear a size 2-4, so I ordered both in this dress for the Breeders Cup horse races this past weekend, unfortunately, the night before the races I received them and both sizes were SO small. I couldn't even get close to zipping up the size 40 AND the zipper was bad on top of it. This dress runs very small, I have a feeling the 6 might not even fit me if I were to try and order it again. Huge bummer as I had to run out last minute and buy a dress, especially since I purchased a hat around this beautiful white one. Rent the Runway, i think you should change the "true to size" mention in your product details. I would probably order this dress again in the bigger size and only with another as a backup.

Would be great for a high school graduation

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wanted a white dress to wear for my rehearsal dinner and pick this as my backup dress. As soon as I took it out of the bag, I knew that I wouldn't be wearing it. The flower appliques looked too "sweet" and slightly juvenile. It was well made and the fabric was thick, but I think it would be much more appropriate for a high school graduation than a 30 year old bride.

Perfect for bridesmaid luncheon

Size worn: 42
Overall fit: Small

This dress was worn for my bridal luncheon. It was a perfect dress for a daytime event. The only bad thing is the material is a little worn down

Way too small, lace was cheap

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered this dress for my high school graduation in a 38 and 40 because RTR said to go a size down. Regardless, these were only two sizes available for my date. The 40 would not zip up past my ribs as the dress was very tight all over. I did not even bother to try on the 38. The lace detailing on the neckline did not lie flat and would've needed to be pressed. Luckily, RTR is so great about fit problems they overnighted me another dress! :) Overall very pretty and sweet dress that would've been perfect for the occasion had the sizing not been so off.

Plain Jane dress.

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to my bridal shower, and although it fit well, it was by no means anything memorable. It also seemed that the dress had been dry cleaned many times prior to my rental since the fabric seemed stiff, making it very difficult to zip/unzip. I paired it with a pair of cerulean blue suede pumps, which made the look a little more fun.

Great for Rehearsal Dinner

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I originally got another dress from RTR and it fit weird, so I had this dress overnighted. It's different than what I usually wear-- I tend to like more fit and flare dresses. But, I loved the fabric, the lace detail and the slim fit. It was perfect for my rehearsal dinner!

Feeling like a princess!

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress fit very well. I usually wear a size 2/4. The design of the dress is loose around the waist so it made me look like I had a tummy but it was just not fitting well. Other than that a perfect bridal shower dress!

Not the most figure flattering

Size worn: 40
Rented for: Other
Rented it to a formal graduation. I ended up going with another dress I rented, because this one just wasn't flattering.
