Star Appeal
I wore this dress to an US Weekly Hot Hollywood party and it was simply perfect. Not only did I feel amazing, I even had stars asking me where my dress was from. One or two of the embellishments on the top were falling off when I received it, but nothing a little two-sided tape couldn't handle.

Cute dress
I really liked the dress, but I did feel tight around the back area (bra) and even higher waist area. I don't know if it was due to my bigger chest but I probably could have worn a size higher.

What a fantastic dress - gets you noticed for all the right reasons :)
I wore this dress to a formal at my grad school. The 0 was a perfect fit and very flattering - no gaping holes, not too long, just perfect. The detail at the top is very beautiful, more so than in the photos here. Only potential downside when ordering this dress is that you might get unlucky with the actual dress you get. I ordered sizes 2 and the 0, and the 2 looked really worn, some of the beads were gone, and a few of the ruffles were torn. In sum, I would not have been able to wear that dress and feel pretty - it was just too damaged. The 0 was in perfect condition, though, so in the end I was lucky it fit.

I loved wearing this dress! It is so unique, beautiful, and well-made. It is also a perfect length- I was worried about it being too long. Wonderful renting experience!

Favorite RTR dress of all time!
I've been renting from RTR from the moment they opened up shop and this dress has to be my favorite dress I've ever rented over the years. This color isn't available anymore (I wish it were because I'd rent it again!) but the black version is still available which I'd highly recommend. Both the 2 and 4 fit me comfortably but I ended up going with the 2. If you're unsure about renting this dress (the black one that's still available) DO IT!

I ordered a 2 and a 4. The 2 fit my body but the 4 was a better length. I wore this to a wedding rehearsal.

I wore the dress to my bridal shower which was outdoors in May.
The dress was great! I loved the fit and it was true to size. I am usually a 2 and the 2 fit perfectly. Everyone thought it was fun for the occasion and I received many compliments. The experience was so good that I am going to rent a dress for a wedding in August.

Lots of compliments!
I wasn't the most comfortable in this dress. There is no give on the fabric and it was VERY tight on my bottom half (true pear-shape body). The defined waist was helpful, but I just didn't think this was the best dress for a somewhat-curvy girl. But, it must be said that I got a LOT of compliments and people kept coming up to me and saying that they heard I got the dress from RTR and asking about it. So, while I may not have been the most comfortable, it certainly looked great!!

Smashing!
I felt fabulous in this dress. I was glad I ordered a size up (ordinarily a 4), because it is not stretchy. The 6 fit perfectly. The dress was different--not the same old thing--but also elegant. I wore it to an awards ceremony. The detail on the metallic bodice is beautiful and the feathery skirt was feminine.

The beading was in really good shape, and the skirt was very flattering and fun. Really liked this dress a lot and would definitely rent it again!

I got so many compliments on the dress, everyone loved it and a few wanted to check out RTR after!
I am small chested, small waisted and wider hips. This dress fit my figure very well. WIth the band in the middle it highlighted my waist. Due to my small chest it was a little loose, but I am barely a 32B. I would recommend this dress to anyone!

Fun and pretty dress that will get you lots of compliments!
This was my first RTR experience and it was perfect! I was attending a fashion show for Nicole Richie and was nervous I wouldn't have anything to wear that would match up to all the other girls there, so my friend recommended Rent The Runway. The dresses came on time and the size 2 fit extremely well. The dress is a little snug around the waist, but nothing a pair of Spanx can't help. I got a lot of compliments on the dress and really felt like I fit in with all the fashionistas there, definitely not something I could normally do on an intern/waitress budget! I will definitely be using RTR again!

Not the right shape for my body though pretty
I loved this dress online. On me, however, not so much. I have a straight body and this dress is not right for a straight frame. It fit in the waist but was huge in the bust (I tried a size 8) completely gaping and looked horrible. I am a 34c and about a 4/6 pant and this dress is meant for someone with a huge chest and small waist. Not me. Sending it back. :( pretty though! (But better for a fun night out, not a formal like I intended)

The yellow skirt made the dress really stand out!
Runs small. I wore 1 size up. The skirt part of the dress has no stretch so fits tight to the hip. The top of the dress was slightly big, since normally I'm a size smaller. Overall dress fit well going 1 size up and was really fun and different.

I actually ended up sending this dress back.
This dress just fit awkward on me. In some places the 4 fit me, and in others the 6 fit me, but neither dress flattered my body style what-so-ever. I'm 5'5" and 120lbs. I have bigger boobs and a tiny waist, and this dress just did NOTHING for me. Maybe a tall and slender body would do well with this dress.

Such a fabulous dress!
I wore this dress out for my birthday in February. I paired it with black tights and a black blazer because it's freezing in Chicago in the winter time. I got so many compliments, definitely recommend the dress!

Dress was pretty for a sunny daytime date, but I did not like the fit or style in person.
Dress runs small - particularly in the yellow skirt. Would size up. If you are looking for something a bit more dressy, this is not the dress for you. Originally purchased to wear out to dinner, but it is more of a daytime dress in my opinion.

Pretty true to size. A tad tight in the rib cage but I am a straighter figure than most. This was my first rental and the beginning of an addiction!

My favorite RTR rental to date!
I LOVED this dress. I loved the balance and look of the yellow flirty bottom with the heavier funky beading on the top. The beading was sturdy and looked quality. This dress is the perfect mix of bright feminine with a little bit of a darker unique edge. The size 2 wasn't available but the 4 fit just fine, was maybe slightly looser than I would have liked but it wasn't problem. The length was also perfect for me. Didn't want to return it!

This dress fit right in at the museum party - it's a work of art itself!
I originally ordered a 2 and it was a bit tight around my hips. I called RTR and they overnighted me the 4 to have in time for the event (you just pay for the shipping). So easy! I wore this edgy-chic stunner on my birthday to a museum party, and it was perfect. A couple of beads were loose or missing from one side, but no one could tell. Plenty of room in the chest for busty ladies.

This dress is so unique and beautiful. Amazing details. Perfect fit.
The size 8 actually fit really well but the skirt length was more of a mini than mid-thigh, so I wore the size 10 instead which worked perfectly. Pros - This dress is so unique. I wore it to a wedding with probably 300 people and there was no one else in anything like it. Fits beautifully. Also, I have big boobs (34D) so I like that the straps were thick enough that I could wear a normal bra with hit. Cons - The only con is that the beading on the top of the dress is very delicate. Just be careful with it.

Great for 30th!
I absolutely love how the yellow contrasts with the top! such a unique dress! And so eye catching! It was perfect for my 30th! The sz 6 fit better up top, but I went with the sz 8 because I was already self-concious about how short the dress is. That is why I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5... because I would have like better if not quite so short. And as before, customer service was outstanding!! P.S./FYI (went with bigger sizes because I still had some baby weight on!

Beautiful detailing, tons of compliments!
Wore this for my Bachelorette party and received tons of compliments all night long. Fit is definitely snugger in the bottom (no stretch) and a little looser up top. The size up wasn't available, but I imagine it would have been more comfortable in the skirt but too large on top.
