Unique, Beautiful Print
Very flattering dress for a casual wedding, tons of compliments on the print. Super comfortable and well-made. The fabric has a lot of structure, so it erases imperfections. The pockets are adorable.

Unique Rachel Roy Dress
I wanted to love this dress but I wasn't impressed with the print when I saw it in person. Looking back at photos from the night, I didn't think it did anything for my frame. The material is nice but a little thick for an outdoor summer wedding. You will definitely get tons of compliments, so if you are looking for a dress that stands out this is a great pick!

I absolutely loved this dress!
I think it is my favorite rent the runway purchase so far! The cut and and style of the dress is very classic and elegant but the fun design adds a great modern element to it. I love that the design was mostly black and white so it didn't stand out too much, but the pop of pink made the dress a wow! It added such a fun element to the dress- especially for a summer wedding! I received so many compliments and felt amazing the whole night.

Unique and Classic
This dress had just enough stretch to make it flattering, and I loved the pockets! I could have worn the 14 with Spanx...but chose comfort in the 16 instead ;)

The pockets were a bonus!
Very comfortable! I am normally a size 4 but there wasn't much "give" in the chest area so I had to wear a 6. size wise it was the same. I would rent again!

Fun but a tad too short for dancing
This dress was rented as a back-up and I wanted a chance to try it for possible use on another date. Fit was excellent (bust, waist, hips) EXCEPT, uncomfortably narrow across the shoulders, front and back. FYI - bust was fine, the confined fit was just across the shoulders. Fabric, design and color are substantial (don't wear this in the summer heat), fun (and artistic), and rich (love the pop of pink). Dress is short - I am almost 5'4" and it ended 4" above my knees. Glad I got to try it.

really comfortable dress!
I chose to wear the size 12 over the size 10 because I really wanted to be comfortable. I'm generally between the 2 sizes so depending on cut/style i can go either way. I loved this dress, for pure comfort and no one will ever have the same dress as you! The fabric is excellant quality a little heavy for hot summer days but good for spring/fall.

Such a fun design
I wore this to a wedding and loved the dress however the 1st size sent fit me like a glove yet had a horrible body odor smell to it so I was forced to wear the one a little larger. Really cool design, I was worried it would be too white and clash with the bride but the other colors made it not look so eye catchingly white. Also saw pockets on the model online yet both of the 2 sizes I received had no pockets boo

The customer service!
I rented 2 dresses for a wedding we were attending. The 14 of this didn't ship because it was damaged. They were amazing and shipped 2 others styles so I could decide. This one fits beautifully except the back tends to bunch because of the zipper. The pockets are an amazing touch!!

Lovely, elegant, different
Very nicely tailored and fitted sheath dress. Comfortable to wear, fit nicely, had a little bit of stretch in the fabric so could move easily. Felt professional and a little festive/party-ish at the same time. Would definitely rent it again.

Good work event dress.
The dress fits true to size. My dress was pretty snug, and the pockets didn't lay completely flat. Other than that, was a good dress.

Professional, fashionable leader
The dress was true to size and above the knee as pictured. I liked the cut and didn't feel the need to accessorize. This worked really well at my professional conference where I had to lead a delegation. I wore it to dinner later, too. This was a definite win from RTR!

Super comfortable and fun dress!
This dress was my third choice after the first one was unavailable due to damage and the second choice was too small. Thankfully this dress fit me like a glove and even had pockets! I wore this to my company's holiday party and got lots of compliments and felt great all night. I wore the 12 to be more comfortable and a bit more conservative since it was a company event, but the 10 fit well too. Loved it!

Strange fitting dress, not for the pear shaped
This dress was super baggy at the waist and in the top and way too tight on the bottom. It also was a lot shorter than it looks and I didn't end up wearing it.

Amazing dress -- the best I've ever rented -- for curves and style!
I'm so in love with this dress (desperate to buy it but I can't find it anywhere online) and so glad I picked it. It's a classic shape yet edgy in it's own way. I love the print, the heavy cotton fabric, the pockets and the exposed zipper. And most importantly, IT FIT. I am short (5'0) and at 36DDD, have a hard time finding dresses that fit. I went for a size 12 after reading that the dress runs a little big. I usually wear a size 10 and the 12 fit like a glove. It even had even room up top for my fun push up bra and was not at all tight across the top. The length was perfect too. I usually worry that standard sized dresses will be too long on me. This one hit just above the knee. The pockets add a little extra flare too. I wore this for an anniversary dinner with my husband and felt as pretty as I did on our wedding day. It was perfect. Tip: the dress would go well with a big statement necklace. I rented one but the pink clashed. Go for a gold or silver accessories.

Great color, great pockets. Wrinkles easily.
This dress runs a little big and has stretch, and I was between sizes. But I couldn't wear the smaller size because it wrinkled so easily I even ironed it halfway through the day, between an afternoon event and an evening one, but the wrinkles were stubborn. It was comfortable and I loved the pockets, and the shape. But I felt self-conscious about the wrinkles when I stood up after sitting.

Would have been a great dress if it was more comfortable
I wore this for an April wedding and, while I received many compliments on the dress, I found it uncomfortable. It was a bit shorter than I thought it would be so I was constantly pulling it down all night. I was glad to be able to wear a normal bra with the dress, but I was definitely a bit squished (I am a 38DD) so it felt a bit like i was wearing a sports bra. Overall, I would recommend sizing up (I had to) and be prepared for a short party dress that is a bit more fund if you have a smaller chest.

Great for dressing up or down
I rented this dress for a whirlwind 24-hour trip out of town for a friend's wedding, and it was pretty much perfect. With flats, it was just the right amount of dressy/casual for the daytime outdoor wedding, and if I'd worn heels, it could easily become cocktail-appropriate. It's also MUCH prettier in real life -- the colors are super vivid, the material has weight without being too thick, and the length is perfect. The only (very minor) thing that wasn't quite perfect was that the cut of the dress made it not sit flat against my back, which made me wish I'd gone down a size for my back-up instead of up. Regardless, I felt pretty all day and got lots of compliments on the dress!

Super cool fabric!
Super cool spacy graffiti print on this dress! Rachel Roy always has a tendency to run a little small but if you go up a size the fit is impeccable. Pockets elevate a normal sheath style and the length is perfect for a daytime, modest event. The print takes it up a notch and I'd purchase this dress!

Interesting and refreshing abstract design on a white background. Great fit and comfortable dress.
The size 8 fit beautifully but I was not used to the curve-hugging feel so I went with the looser size 10. Looking at the photo now, I realize that I could have stayed with the 8. The dress fabric is so interesting that you don't need to add much jewelry, but the Kenneth Jay Lane "Jet Drop" Earrings were a terrific added touch. Kudos to the stylist who chose those as my "mystery bling."

I loved that this dress was unique and stood out, but it was still appropriate for a day wedding.
I loved this dress! It fit perfectly (size up as it runs small, and since the material is thick, you probably want it to be a little loose as opposed to a little tight). It was so comfortable. I was able to sit, stand, and move around in it comfortably and with no issues. It was a good length, too. Usually by the end of an event, I can't wait to change into something more comfortable, but I didn't have that problem with this dress. It felt great on, it wasn't restrictive, and I was able to sit through a half-hour ceremony in the blazing sun without breaking a sweat. I would definitely recommend this dress, and I may rent it for another wedding in a few months!

The fit was very comfortable as the dress is well made. I would wear this often if this was a dress I own. It's so versatile!

WOW FACTOR PATTERN ; BUT NOT IN YOUR FACE
TIGHT IN THE THIGH / HIP AREA. HOWEVER THE FABRIC LENT ITSELF TO HAVING ALITTLE STRETCH. SLEEVES AND CHEST FIT GREAT. A LITTLE AWKAWRD WITH SITTING DOWN. LOVED THE WEIGHT OF THE FABRIC (HEAVY) STYLE WAS EASY TO DRESS UP WITH BIG NECKLACE AND NUDE SHOES.

Love, love, LOVE the pattern design on this dress!
Absolutely loved the look and feel of this dress. I would def rent it again for another occasion. I am busty, usually a size 12, but needed a 14 to fit around the chest. (full disclosure: I did not get to wear it t my event because the zipper was broken when I received it. RTR was AMAZING to work with to make sure I had a dress for my event. They sent me several recommendations, and after picking which one I wanted they overnighted my new (even prettier) dress!)

It runs slightly large. If you float between sizes, order your normal size and one size down.

It was a rather unflattering fit
Judging from the reviews and the photos I thought this dress would look better than it did. The dress was a little small in my opinion. It fit but the size 4 (my usual size) was tight in the arms and under the bust where the waist tucks in. Overall the dress was unflattering on me which I think was due to my height. The dress was short, made shorter by the sky high slit in the back. Normally if this was an Herve dress or another skin tight dress made to be a mini I would have worn it. However, the conservative top half with just a short hemline did not work. The material is nice and thick but the dress came wrinkled. The front pockets bulged out oddly which made me look bigger than I am. Overall the design was really pretty but the dress did not work for me and I never wore it.

Great dress but runs small
Loved the dress- great design, loved the pockets and the thick material. Unfortunately, the dress ran a little narrow through the hips and was too tight to wear. Luckily I live close to a RTR store and was able to switch my dress out for another one that worked out great.

Loved it!!
I loved this dress. It was perfect for an early fall wedding, heavier fabric so it held it's shape well. I wore a shaper slip underneath just for my own comfort, probably didn't need to. It was the perfect length on me, if I were taller, it would have been really short. I would rent this dress again.

Didn't wear but loved the pattern!
I loved the pattern of this dress however- it was clearly worn multiple times and could tell and also the zipper came off right in my hand so I never got to wear it. I just returned it in hopes to maybe rent it again in the future for another event. I still tried it with the broken zipper and it did feel a little on the smaller side so size up for this just in case!
