Versatile, beautiful dress
This was my first experience with Rent the Runway and it was a great one. Both dresses fit but I chose to wear the 2 because it fit better through the bust and arms. I am happy that I went with the long length as the regular would have been way too short to wear with heels. Lots of compliments on the dress and even more than a few requests to borrow. ;-)

This dress made my night!!!
LOVE this dress and I received so many compliments. It does run small; I usually wear a 4 and was glad I had a 6 on hand. I'm 5'7 and it was a little long without heels, so you may want some hem tape on hand as well.

Beautiful dress
I received this dress from RTR because my original dress pick wasn't returned on time and they sent me this instead. It is absolutely stunning, comfortable and more colorful in person. I had a wedding to attend and I didn't feel comfortable going braless in case I wanted to dance so I didn't end up actually wearing it. I would highly recommend though, but only if you are comfortable going without a bra!

So many compliments!!
I wore this for a family wedding where I was in a few formal photos. The dress was perfect for the occasion (a formal wedding at beach front country club), with so many fun details to make it special. The pattern was fun and made the dress look even more flowy than it already was. The length was perfect for 3 inch heels. The adjustable straps helped to improve the fit, and the back was just revealing enough. I used a stick-on bra as the fabric was thin in the front - it helped me feel more comfortable. I really wanted (and needed) the 8R but it was unavailable, so I put in a few stitches to pull in the waist for a smaller, more flattering fit (they came right out and you can't even tell where they were!). I got compliments all night! Wish i had more reasons to wear this dress!!

Lightweight dress, perfect for beach parties
This dress was so comfortable and "swishy" that I didn't want to take it off when I checked the fit. I wore it for a beach party in the rain in San Francisco and the material was quick drying for those moments when you simply have to sing in the rain. The adjustable straps were wonderful and if you just wear pasties there aren't any problems. I wore the regular, not the long, and the length ended just above the ground with flats on. Tons of compliments all night

Super easy to wear, comfortable, great flattering fit!!
Comfortable, flowy, super flattering... Tons of compliments... Gave 4 stars because it was a bit short, had to wear kitten heels and I'm 5'7"... Also straps had to be worn pretty tight to keep from slipping off my shoulders

Loved this dress! Perfect for a winery wedding
I loved wearing this dress! It was so fun when I walked with the flowy skirt. However, being 5'4" wearing 3 in wedges it was still a bit long which made stairs a little challenging. The top is a very thin material so you definitely need to wear stick ons or something underneath. I received a ton of compliments on this dress; I was sad to return it!

Love the maxi with the open back. If you are a fuller bust you will need a corset bra for the back. My only complaint was the straps would become loose fairly easily.

Flowy style made for a great maternity option
I rented this dress for a summer wedding at an aquarium. I wore it as a maternity dress since I was six months pregnant. The flowy style worked out nicely to accommodate my baby bump and the dress was very comfortable. I'm normally a size 0 and petite build but went up a size due to me being pregnant.

Pretty Maxi
I ordered this dress as a back up option for a wedding. I didn't end up wearing this gown because the other dress I ordered was a better fit for me. I am 5'3/125 lbs and I ordered the 2R because that was the only size available at the time but a 4R would of probably fit better. There is a dark blue stripe detail around the waist and it was really, really tight in that area. I could of worn it- but I would of been uncomfortable. I had planned to wear 4" wedges with this dress, so the length was good. If you are on the shorter side like me and do not want to wear tall shoes, I would recommend going with a petite size. The only reason I didn't give this dress 5 stars is because although I loved the open back (which has adjustable straps) the front was kind of boring. Maybe adding a fun necklace would make it more fun. The dress was really light in material and had a great flow. Great RTR experience.

The flow of the fabric was flawless, and the open back was playfully sexy.
A little snug around the waist, however the fabric is tailored in a way that you don't have to wear a bra (f yea!)

Beach wedding in Mexico!
Loved the flow of this dress for my friend's beach wedding in Mexico. By the time I rented they only had the 10 petite or the 6 regular, and really the 8 petite would have been perfect. The 10 was far too big on top but I definitely struggled tripping on the length of the skirt with the regular length even though I was in 4 inch heels.

Whimsical and Comfortable
I selected this dress for an outdoor wedding on someone's property. It was perfect for the occasion and outdoor venue with lots of grass. It floated a little off the ground so you could see the 2" baby heels I wore. The dress skirt moved well when I walked and kept the bugs off my legs. If it was an indoor wedding I would have chosen the long option and worn a slightly taller heel. I also chose not to wear a bra because the top was loose enough and it worked out for me. Overall a great dress for a wedding.

Best dress yet!
Wore this for my sisters rehearsal dinner. It was perfect!! The back was amazing and I didn't need to wear a bra. So light and flowy. This was my favorite dress I have rented so far! Also the adjustable straps were a plus!!

Sisters rehearsal dinner
I loved this dress, the back was especially fun and it was super flowy and pretty. The only downside was that I am super short (5'2") and even with heels the length was way too long on me. Because the dress was printed and flowy, I was able to use safety pins to pin up the length from the inside and you really couldn't tell from the outside of the dress at all. Once I fixed the length it was perfect!

Great for the occasion
It runs mostly true to size, except in the waist. i had a couple inches of extra space where the black band is. Also, the long is actually long: I'm 5'10 and is hit the floor. Overall, it was super comfortable and looked great the whole night.

Great Dress! Easy to dress up
It was very fitted at the waist, I am very broad through the rib cage, so I had to go up a size, otherwise the smaller would have worked. I added a gold metal belt and a fun bag for a pop of color for an evening, outdoor wedding.

This was for one of my best friend's wedding, it was an incredible night and RTR experience.
I am 5'9", I was a little worried getting a maxi, since most long dresses are still not long enough. I though it would be good to get the 8L and then I would probably wear flats with it. Turns out that the dress was long enough for heels but not too long for flats. I wore heels to the ceremony and the early part of the reception and then put on flats to dance. The top is more coverage than I thought and there was no risk of wardrobe malfunction, I did wear a sticky bra under the top but really could have gone with no bra if I wanted to. The fit and feel of the dress was perfect, I did not want to return the dress!

Pretty dress, but casual
I didn't end up wearing this dress because it was too casual for the wedding I attended. It is a pretty dress, but more suited to a beach event than a wedding. It's very pretty, though!

This dress was the perfect match! Long, flowy and the perfect blend of sexy and cute.
The waist is small so be cautious of that. It's right because it's the only way those straps will stay up. I tightened my straps to the max and paired it with a stick on strapless bra from Target (a MUST- It made such a difference vs going braless). I am 5'7" with a long torso and the regular was the perfect length with flats. Just a spectacular dress, didn't wanna send it back:(

FUN dress to wear, got lots of compliments, super comfortable. Need statement necklace or the neckline feels strange, forces you to sit/stand up straight because of open back.

Pretty and effortless dress!
I loved this dress! I rented it for a black tie optional wedding. I loved how flowy the skirt was and the overall comfort of this dress. It's a little fitted at your natural waist and the skirt for a regular was the perfect length even with 3 inch heels. The back was fabulous, with adjustable straps to make it fit just right (I ended up wearing no bra)! This dress is a must rent!

Awesome,comfortable, beautiful dress!
The dress fit perfectly! A little too long to be worn w flats or short heels. I'm 5'4, wore a regular and had about 3" heels. The dress perfectly hit the floor. It's very lightweight, which helped for an outdoor summer wedding.

I wore this to a destination wedding in Jamaica.
The straps are adjustable and the regular length was perfect to wear with sandals. I ended up not wearing a bra with the dress and because of the pattern, you couldn't tell!

Beautiful dress. Great to dance in.
As always when wearing a RTR dress, I got so many compliments. The open back allowed me to go down a size smaller than what I usually wear. The flowy-ness of the dress made it perfect for an outdoor Arizona wedding, as I was able to keep cool all night. The length was perfect with my 3.5 inch heels. Overall great dress, would definitely wear it again.

Conservative from the front, sexy from the back.
Easy to wear, would fit any body type. Adjustable shoulder straps allow for the waist to fall in right place. I'm 5'9 and wore the 6L. Had to wear flats. I always wear a 6 or 8...the 6 was perfect. Wore this to dinner in Madrid...also paired with a blazer for dinner in morocco.

Looks great and really comfortable
I loved this dress and got so many compliments, even from random people in the hotel and working the wedding. It was incredibly comfortable even though it was backless. I ended up going with the 4L because it just fit me better on top - it's a little flowy on top and I'm pretty small. I definitely needed the long as well since the 6R just touched the floor without shoes. I did need 4 inch heels, but had brought two pairs just in case.

Perfect Conservative Summer Dress
I didn't wear this one as it was too long on my 5'3" frame even with 4 inch heels. But the top fit nicely. The open back is a nice surprise. It's great for any summer event you need to look conservative for!

It fit me like It was tailored made for me.I wore flats. I'm 5'9.5, 137lbs, 34A, 34/27/36. The back is low and sexy. It's flowy, a maintenance free, beautiful dress!

Perfect dress for a wedding. It fit great and was very flattering. If I had wanted to wear heels I would have had to rent the long, but with flats the regular was perfect. I got tons of compliments in the dress. The open back was amazing. Wish I could wear it again!

Perfect for dancing all night!
The adjustable straps were what sold me on the dress and were what made the dress perfect. I'm rather small chested and so tightening the straps to the max enabled me to go braless. The material makes for a very comfortable fit however created a few problems. It is rather long so I sported 5 inch heels that often got caught in the extra (very sheer) fabric at the bottom and almost caused few face plants. It was incredibly comfortable and I would recommend it to a small chested, taller friend!

I loved this dress! Casual or elegant, it's amazing
So I originally got this as a brunch dress, and then when my NYE dress didn't work out, I tried this one on and my fiance just loved it. He actually preferred it over the deep plunge, low back number I tried on before. It is demure in the front, just use some tape for the girls, and then amazing in the back. Coverage is awesome, and wow factor all around. I want to buy it!

First RTR experience and will not be my last. I'm 140 lbs, 5' 8" and normally wear a 6. I ended up wearing the 6L because it flowed better! Loved this dress so much- I wanted to keep it! It looks even more beautiful in person! Love love love

Didn't work for me.
I thought I would love this dress. I rented it for a semi-formal event in March. The top was SO THIN! I felt like in the right light everyone would be able to see EVERYTHING! I'm a mother of 2 and just couldn't feel comfortable even coming out of my bathroom. It was a very beautiful dress, but wasn't going to work for me.

Wore it for a brunch and beauty day before a wedding.
I have never gotten so many compliments on a dress in my entire life. Super comfortable (can't wear a bra with it) and flows like an angel when you walk. Will be purchasing the dress to have for life!
