The other reviews are right! It definitely runs short. I wore it with flats so it wouldn't be too crazy. It was perfect for a summer, casual rehearsal dinner. The embroidery was very elegant and it was also very comfortable to wear because the material is so soft. I'd defintiely recommend it

Perfect look for a Memorial Day weekend wedding!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I really loved wearing this dress. I got a ton of compliments! It was in great condition and fit me perfectly - the thicker fabric with its heavy embroidery makes it forgiving and flattering, and it was very comfortable to dance in at the wedding all night. The length was great for me at 5'2", but I can imagine it would be VERY short for anyone much taller! The only issue I had was with the fit around the arm openings - there was still quite a bit of a gap that exposed my bra (even with a larger bust to fill the area up). I also had to keep tucking my bra straps back in throughout the evening, but that was my fault for not bringing a racerback bra. I paired the dress with nude pumps, simple gold jewelry and the Kate Spade owl purse I rented!

I absolutely loved this dress when I saw it online. Unfortunately for me, I have curvier hips and so a shift dress was not a good decision for me. I wish I had worn a belt, it probably would have fit a lot better!

I loved the style and look of this dress. It fit me well except for one problem - the straps were a little long. I have a pretty short torso and the length between my shoulder and chest is very short. This caused some gaping when I sat down and you could see my bra through the arm holes. Not a huge deal, but I wasn't thrilled with the overall fit. I probably wouldn't rent this dress again but I did enjoy wearing it. The embroidery details are beautiful and so are the colors. It's cottony, but sturdy. It was comfortable to wear in 80+ degrees with humidity.

Cute dress--not for the tall ladies!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Cute dress, very fun to wear. In person it is a deep royal blue (no purple tones at all) with true red embroidery. Very little stretch to the fabric with a nice shape and fit. The neck scooped low on me so there was a lot of cleavage--no surprise there though given how short I am. But, speaking of height, this shift is definitely NOT for any of you tall ladies. I am 4'10 and the hem was at least 4 inches above my knees, + it rode up another few inches any time I sat down. I don't think anyone over 5'4 could wear this as anything other than a shirt. (But that is an idea! It does have a casual vibe and could be cute with leggings...)

This dress was very unique. I received compliments on it all night. I was very sad to send it back! The only thing I will say about it is that the material does not stretch. The material reminds me of a table cloth (a very beautiful table cloth), so if you are heavy in the behind or chest area it will look really tight there and loose in other areas.

Loved this dress! It was perfect for a summer wedding. The colors are beautiful and very bright - I got so many compliments! It ran a little large so I sized down, but the dress is very short so if you're on the taller side that could be an issue. Otherwise it was perfect - super comfortable & unique!

The color and pattern were really unique. I got a bunch of compliments on it! This is my favorite rent the runway dress that I have rented so far, I would consider buying it. The only bad thing was that I ordered a size 6 and 8 and both showed up with small holes near the bottom of the zipper. The dress wasn't extremely tight so I decided I could wear the dress with a little double stick tape on the inside of the hole. No one noticed (or at least mentioned it).

I loved this dress! I don't have it straightened in the picture, (embarrassing!) but the pattern was beautiful. I got so many compliments. Make sure you out this dress over your head rather than stepping into it. It does not stretch whatsoever. I wore the 0 and didn't even try on the 2. It was a little tight around my hips but the top of the 2 would have been to large. I didn't find the material to think for a July day in St. Louis. I highly recommend this dress!

Both sizes fit, I decided to go with the 6 because it was a tiny bit longer, and a little roomier in the tummy area and we were going for a fabulous dinner! :) overall, he couldn't stop telling me how beautiful I looked and how amazing the dress was...definitely recommend! For taller girls, I would definitely size up though.

I wore this for my 27th birthday dinner at a seafood restaurant - perfect fabric for a July night! I wore the size 12, because although the 10 fit, it was a little looser and longer - more appropriate for the casual setting. I got SO many compliments on this dress - this is my favorite rental to date and the one I'd most like to own/not give back!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was a comfortable shift dress. The colors are vibrant, and the embroidery is quality. I got many compliments on this dress that I wore to a backyard wedding. I had two complaints. First, the dress was on the shorter side. I started with wedges on but decided to put flats on to make it more appropriate. I would say I'm of average height, and the dress was definitely short. Secondly, the arm holes are quite large and lead to some gapping. My bra could be seen in several photos as a result. If I owned this dress, I would definitely have the size of the arm holes taken in. That being said, given the price of this rental, I don't regret renting it.

This dress was one of many I couldn't decide on for my engagement pics. I normally wear a 8 or 6 depending on comfort. I went with the 8 because it is a little straight through the hips and thighs. As you can tell I'm thicker in the butt and thighs so I needed it! The dress was a hit everyone loved it and it really stood out in the pictures. It was a little on the short side, so I wouldn't feel totally comfortable in it, sitting down and going up stairs made me a little nervous! Overall a great chocie, the material is thick cotton with beautiful vibrant embroidery.

This was my 2nd rental for an August wedding. The 1st had some cosmetic issues so this back up dress worked great! I ordered a 4 & 6 - usually I can wear a 4 but this dress was so short that I needed the 6. I'm 32DD and was able to fit perfectly in this dress!! I'm 5'8 and this dress was SHORT.. short short! - but HOT! You'll love it. Also, it could really be dressed up or down! The fabric isn't a "dressy" material - so you could wear it with flats if you wanted! LOVE RTR!! My first rental and I'll be back for sure!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wish I owned this dress! It was actually a replacement dress because the one I originally got was too small, and I couldn't have hoped for a better substitute! I don't know if I'm the best person to advocate on the fit because I am an 8 or a 10 and I only received the 12. The sleeves/straps were definitely one part of the dress that was bigger than other places. This is also a fabric that is not stretchy at all, so when I was sitting it stretched out and didn't reshape, but I wore this for my 21st birthday and I'm pretty sure my body is still thanking me for wearing a looser dress haha. The colors are so vibrant and all my friends want to borrow this dress from me hahaha

I wish I had ordered a size up. I typically wear a 4 or 6, but I ordered/wore the 4. The dress was really pretty with great colors, I received lots of compliments, however it was very short.

This dress is beautiful but it was very short. It looked amazing on I just felt uncomfortable, I would have felt more comfortable if I ordered up. a size. I kept pulling the dress down especially when sitting. At dinner I put my napkin over my lap because the dress went up a lot. I did receive many compliments and I loved the dress just order up a size as your back up. RTR was so easy to order from it was delivered so quickly and easy return just put in the return bag and in a drop box, done! I was so happy I didn't have to buy two new dresses for my friends birthday weekend!

Sadly this was the only pic I got of the dress, and it's not very much to go off. The dress is beautiful, high quality and really pretty colors. It is SHORT though, and I'm 5'2"! Like, I had to put my napkin over my lap or else things would have been real weird. :-/ It was a also a bit snug. I'm a true size 2, and I still wore the 2 but it was a little tighter than I would have liked. The 4 was more comfortable and a bit longer, but it was obviously loose. I wouldn't rent it again, cause it was just too short.

I rented this dress for an early September wedding and could not have been happier with it! The colors are considerably more vibrant than the model's photographs suggest (I remember thinking it looked a little 4th of July when I first took it out of the box), but I received nonstop compliments both during and well after the wedding. The dress is definitely short (tall girls beware), but a great option for those of you who want to show a little leg without revealing too much on top. It's shape also held up well in the rain, which is more than I can say for my hair... A real statement dress. Loved wearing it!

I wore this in July for my 29th birthday party as my free birthday dress! It was super fun and fit well. I am usually in between a 2 or a 4, but I opted for the 4. Both the 2 and 4 were pretty comparable in size.. The only drawback is that it is short! I'm barely 5'5" and I had to really watch out when I sat down or bent over..

This dress was perfect for the fiesta-themed birthday party we hosted! They sent a 10 because it was a backup size for another dress I had ordered that wasn't available, and this was a last minute add (the RTR staff was awesome about it!). The dress was loose and the 8 might have worked better, but because I'm relatively tall, I appreciated the larger size because it was definitely short! All in all I loved this dress and highly recommend it.
