RUN AWAY if you're DD or DDD
I am a 36DDD and this did NOT work for me. It exposed a lot of side boob and was very tight around my waist with a bra. Without a bra it fit better, but it would be completely inappropriate for the bridal shower I am attending not to wear one. I doubt I will wear it. If you want it and you have a big bust, go a size up and bring a cardigan just in case.

Perfect purple dress for Latin Honor Society Induction!
The fit was a little awkward around the bust area, and the skirt laid a little wide for my taste. the length and straps were very appropriate for the semi-formal event I attended

Replacement that worked!
This was a replacement dress that I ordered after the first dress I ordered didn't work out. I'm glad I decided to get both sizes because the 8 would not have fit. The dress was really flattering on my body type (pear) but I did feel like the chest area was a little tight - would not recommend for women with a larger bust. I would give this dress 5 stars, but when I opened the bag I was a bit disappointed to find that the color was not as vibrant as seen on the model. The dress has definitely faded - probably because of the material. Definitely fun to spin around in on the dance floor - but wear full underwear. Order the size up!

The fit is really good. Only thing is the straps were a little loose. But other than that a beautiful and fun dress

I ended up sending this to the wrong address but did try it on! So cute!
I would say it fits true to size although the skirt felt a little big/long. Not bad and I think it still looked good but if you're not used to a poof, this may not be for you! Otherwise, it was super cute... there was a faint smell to it that wasn't great but I assume it as the detergent they use.

This dress was super fun!
It was a great rich purple that really stood out for a summer outdoor wedding. The front was simple and flattering and the cutouts on the back gave it a bit of edge. I have a larger top half than most and it fit great without a bra so I would imagine many people may have extra room up top. That being said, it's a rare find to get a fabric where I can go without support and still feel 100% comfortable. The flare adds more of shape and is very fun to dance in. Would definitely recommend!

The color is gorgeous! The style is unique!
This dress was perfect for my friend's wedding! The color is a great shade of purple. I was hesitant about ordering it after reading reviews... Some said it was great for a bigger bust, others said it made them have a weird side boob. No side boob and I think it's perfect for someone with a bigger bust! I wear a 34DDD and had no worries going braless! The skirt WILL go Marilyn Monroe on you if there is any bit of wind. Would not recommend wearing it for an outside event! I hope I get a chance to wear this again!!!

Perfect for my bridal shower!
This dress fit in the waist like a glove. The chest was a tiny bit too big, but it didn't bother me at all. The straps were too long, but I pinned them up discretely with safety pins with no issue. I thought it was the perfect length, but I'm only 5', so something someone taller might want to keep in mind. I wore this dress for my daytime bridal shower and it was perfect! The dress is cotton, so not as dressy as you might think. I received compliments on it all day long and I'm still getting rave reviews from people who see the pictures. A great rental!

not THAT dressy...
i rented this for a wedding thinking it was flowy and had a shaffon overlay, it didn't. it was much more casual than it looks in the picture. still a cool dress and it fit true to size, just not right for the occasion.

Pretty back
The back of the dress is cool, but it was extremely tight along my waistline. If the size 2 had been available, I would have sized up. I also don't like how the skirt is attached. It's sewn on so the ends of the top of the skirt stick up off the dress. It looks unfinished. I wore a strapless bra with it, and it was not visible at all.

The color of this dress is beautiful!
This dress fits a little small in the waist and chest, in my opinion. I was in between 4 and 6. Because I am also petite, I went with the 4 and wished there was a 5! The 6 was too big in the waist. A beautiful color and cut.

Lots of compliments on the color and neckline!
I wore this to a summer wedding and loved it!! The bust was pretty snug but otherwise true to size. The fabric is more cotton-like and soft than I expected based on pictures. The neckline is really unique and pretty. The fit was flattering and color is bright, I would rent this again.

Cute dress for a Derby Party!
Loved this dress, but will say it's a little tighter up top if you have a larger bust. Other than that, it was the perfect dress for a derby party and a great weight for springtime.

Loved this dress. It was fitted around the bust and had a very full, playful skirt. The color is vibrant and flattering. Be sure to wear a strapless bra with this as the back has the cut outs.

I did not like this dress at all! It looks nothing like the picture in person!
The fit is so weird! I am a pretty small person and it made me look a lot bigger than I am! The dress looks soooo different in person than it does online! It is a very casual dress and is a much darker purple in person! I did not end up wearing this dress!

Cute idea but ultimately not very flattering
Quite short-waisted - the waist hit at the bottom of my ribs, so it didn't quite get to the narrowest part before flaring out into the full skirt, and the paperbag waist just seems to add bulk rather than creating the most flattering silhouette. If I were to wear it again, I might add a belt to hide the paperbag effect. Still, color was great - with big chunky jewelry and wedges, it would be a nice option for a casual summer party.

Great dress for a semiformal event!
This was a really great dress. It had a flattering shape and neckline, and the back was really cool. Some things to note: It is longer than it looks. I am 5'2" and it hit right above my knees. I'm a 32A and the straps were a little bit long so I had to wear a padded bra to make it fit. Also, the fabric is cotton so it's not an extremely fancy dress, but is better for semiformal occasions. Looks really great with silver accessories!

Too big in chest
Cute color. Way to big in the chest for smaller chested women. Also, made my hips look larger than I wanted. I just didn't have the right shape for this dress.

This dress was simple perfection
This dress hugged and flared in all the right places, the cut outs on the back added a bit of edge to preppy dress. I could have worn this dress forever it fit so perfectly, and it twirled in the most elegant way! So many people asked where I purchased such a fun, quality cocktail dress, and once again I was forced to reveal my secret weapon, Rent the Runway

Better in the picture
I had ordered this dress, along with another in both size 8 & 10 and I'm an 8 in just about every dress. But this dress is cut a lot smaller and the material is not the most comfortable and doesn't stretch at all. The 10 did actually fit, but it just didn't look right and wasn't super comfortable. However the color was gorgeous in person. Overall just wasn't the right dress.

This dress is true to size. I am a size 0 and it fit me like a glove. It was a pretty, and a very light weight dress. The dress is like a deep eggplant purple. I will definitely rent again.

Great dress for garden party
My daughter worn this dress for a forma affair. Loose at top but unless you have the right bra you will have to either wear a strapless which may show or nothing at all. I choose sans bra and it worked better. The fabric was not as formal as I thought it should be for a formal affair.

Awkward fit
I loved the color of the dress. The material was less fancy than I'd hoped. The cutouts in the back just looked weird on me. But I'm a curvy girl, so this just wasn't a great option. It was a last-minute decision and it didn't pan out. But that's ok!

Not good for outdoor functions...
I did not enjoy this rental at all! I wore this to a rehearsal dinner and found that if there is any slight breeze at all, the skirt of this dress will "Marilyn Monroe" like you wouldn't believe. I couldn't even keep it down walking to the car! It felt so poofy on the bottom, and was a little too short for my taste (and I'm only 5'6"). Just not ideal. The color is pretty and the top is great for busty girls... but the bottom is too challenging for me. I would not recommend risking it on this one! I was so self conscious all night.

Perfect for NYE 2015
This was a great dress! It didn't have to be ironed and was a very flattering fit. I'm not usually a purple person but wanted to go out on a limb and I didn't regret it. It was a nice change of pace. Only complaint is that it was a little short on my 5'10 frame.

I wore this to my sorority's semi formal in the fall! It was a fun dress!
Channel your inner 80's girl!!! Fit's pretty true to size - I felt I had more room in the 4 but opted for the 2 because the 4 also had too much extra room underneath the arms. The material is great and the dress feels expensive despite being one of the cheaper rentals. It also photographs well which is a plus and I was able to wear a strapless bra with it! I would probably never buy this dress to own because it's not really my style but for one night, it was fun to do something different and I received many compliments.

RTRs customer service was fabulous they did a great job finding me a dress after my first two failed
This was my 3rd dress that I rented for this occasion. An I was happy to find something that I could wear for this occasion. It ran small in the bust and in the under arm area. However it was a great dress for someone who wants to hide their hips n belly

Dress not proportional, awkward fit
I did get some compliments on the dress because it was unique. Its a cotton dress so for an outdoor wedding the fabric and style was fine. The straps were too big and did not fit properly, it also cut in very weird to create a side boob. I was able to wear a strapless bra and I did love the back of the dress but due to the awkward sizing of the straps I wouldn't want to wear this again.

Could barely squeeze my chest into it!
Hi Ladies! I am sorry I am pictureless but I ended up not even wearing the dress. I had rented it for a party and -no fault to the construction of the dress- but I looked silly in it. The waist fell higher than it looks on the model and since I am extremely top heavy I looked pretty goofy. I also could barely get my chest into the dress! Curvy ladies, D+ cup beware!

Fun, flirty dress with lots of movement
I wore this for my bridal shower. Both the 2 and the 4 fit just fine, but ultimately I went with the 4 so it wasn't quite as tight in the rib cage. The color is a very rich purple and I had a blast with a the pleats in the skirt. The only advice I would give is anticipate extra time for ironing because there is A LOT of surface area to cover on the skirt when spread out.

Brilliant purple color, flirty fit, unique back... Perfect for an outdoor wedding!
Wore to my brother's outdoor wedding. Color is a great brilliant purple. Fit nice and snug, no bra necessary but able to wear with the cross back if need be. I uploaded a pic of the back so you can see how unique it is. Got a lot of compliments. Only thing is that like other posters say, it definitely runs short, so something to keep in mind for a more formal wedding. Definitely recommend this dress!

Not my favorite
I rented this dress for a Sunday wedding but I still think it was too casual. The skirt was a lot fuller than I thought it would be, and sort of made my hips look bigger than they are. The top was actually somewhat loose but I wore a strapless bra underneath and that helped it fit better. I had no issues with the bra showing through the cutouts and no issues with the straps feeling too tight. It's a cute dress for a fun day party but it felt more like a sundress than something I should be wearing to a wedding.

Birthday party! Had a great time! East to rent, easier to return!
I could wear both the size 4 and 6, but chose the 6 so that I could wear a strapless bra! The dress was comfortable and very cute. I liked the color and it showed up nice in pictures. Would rent again. Glad I got both sizes.
