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

Overall fit: True to Size

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 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.

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

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

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!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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!

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.

Cute and comfortable dress!

Size worn: 16
Rented for: Formal Affair
I usually wear a 14 but I ordered the 16. I could have probably worn either one. It fell about 3 inches above the knee and I'm 5'5" but it may have been longer on me because I have no butt. It fit in the top which is typically why I have to size up-38DD. Sturdy zipper ( I always see people with zipper complaints). Pockets were super cute. It was nice to have a full coverage dress without looking matronly. Nice thick material. May not have been the most slimming dress but certainly didn't make me pudge out anywhere. Overall great dress and great RTR experience.

Amazing dress -- the best I've ever rented -- for curves and style!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
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.

Size worn: 16
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
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

Size worn: 16
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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!

Size worn: 16

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.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: 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 pockets sit high on the dress and looked odd on me. The dress is best for someone with a shorter torso and longer legs.
