The skirt is good for twirling!
Cute fit. Dress is cute small on top. The arms were a little tight and I would have had to size up if I had a bigger bust. Fabric does not stretch at all.

I wore this dress after my wedding reception to the after party! Received many compliments!
Soft material but still thick enough to keep me warm in mid 40s weather. Flattering fit and true to size.

STYLIST REVIEW
I loved the simplicity and easy fit of this style. You can easily dress it up or down and it is the perfect blank canvas for some statement accessories. It runs true to size with a little bit of stretch. It's fitted in the bust though, so it's best for smaller busts. Make sure to size up for your backup size!

very cute
wore this dress to my engagement part in november and it was prefect as it was warm enough for a cool night. not usually a fan of fit and flare style dresses but this one did not "flare" as much as others and therefore was a much better fit for my body

Worn to a brunch thrown by my Maid of Honor (pictured left) at the MOMA for me and my Bridesmaids.
I felt like this was the perfect dress for a bridal event. It's just the right mix of fun but classy. I felt great wearing it and got so many compliments! I have fairly broad shoulders so went up a size from my normal one; it doesn't run too big but keep in mind that with a long-sleeved dress you want to consider if you should go up a size to make sure you can move your arms normally . And thank you to Justine at Rent the Runway for helping me find this dress and picking amazing accessories for me!

This dress was perfect for my engagement photos. Great fit and very flattering to wear!
Wore this for my engagement photos and it was the perfect dress! Fit was true to size but was a little tight in the arms and bust. Ordered a 2 and 4 and ended up going with the 4 for this reason. Fabric is a nice weight and good quality. Would definitely rent this again!

I loved loved loved the dress but he arms and chest do run a little tight. So if you're a little busty I would go up a size.

This dress was perfect!
I absolutely loved this dress!! I rented it for my company's Christmas party, and it was perfect for the event. The shape and color of the dress were extremely classy, and it flattered my body really well. I'm 5'9" and 125 lbs, and a size 4 fit me perfectly. I actually had some extra room in the dress around my waist, but it didn't look too big. Because I'm quite tall, a lot of dresses in my size end up looking very short on me, which makes me feel a bit uncomfortable... but this one wasn't too short at all. Pairing the dress with some simple nude strappy heels and the GORGEOUS Aubrey earrings by Ella Carter was absolutely perfect. If I could buy this dress right now I totally would!! I received so many compliments on it! And this was my first RTR experience, and I couldn't be more pleased. They just make everything so easy for you! I'm a very satisfied customer.

This dress was for my rehearsal dinner for my wedding!
I rented this for my rehearsal dinner and was very excited about it because I rented a dress for my bachelorette party, which worked out perfectly. This white dress fits true to size, and the material was good, it was a pretty dress, but unfortunately the way the dress was made, along the bust line, it was darty. Unfortunately, I could not wear the dress. It is might be better for a different size bust line. That was the only think that did not work out on dress. Though I have to say my experience with RTR was still a good one.

LOVED IT!
The fit was amazing. I wear a snug size 4, before I rented the dress I looked at the reviews. They mostly said it runs really small so to go up a size. I ordered a 6 and an 8. The 8 was way to big and the 6 fit. I wish I would have ordered the 4, because the 4 could have fit. This dress was perfect for my body shape! It kept me warm in 60 degrees. I recommend this dress to anyone with big hips! I loved it and I got a lot of compliments :)

"Wow" "Gorgeous" "Stunning"
Those are some of the compliments I received on this dress. My husband and I have been together for ten years and he said I looked "smoking hot" in the dress. These compliments are few and far between after three kids ;) It made me feel beautiful. It's a great dress!

I wore this dress to my rehearsal dinner in November. It was the PEFECT fall/winter formal dress.
The dress is made of a thick, stark white fabric, and the pleats make it a fun twirly dress. I'm 5"2, and the dress fell just above my knee. It was long enough that I could wear tall pumps and not feel too exposed on a chilly November night. It fits snugly around the ribs/torso and then loosens up around the belly button, so very flattering and comfortable to wear to a rehearsal and dinner. The dress is pretty snug on the arms though, so my arms felt sort of restricted throughout the night, but not a huge problem. Overall, perfect dress for the occasion!

Ended up not being able to wear the dress, which is a big bummer. The waist fit perfectly but the top was very tight. Would suggest getting the next size up for bigger busts

They sent me a different dress at the right moment.
My first time using RTR, and it was a great experience ! I wasn't sure of my size (I had a baby 4 mons ago) and am usually a size 2/4, but the 6 was perfect for me. Seriously fit like a glove and the flare from the wind was everything! Perfect for my engagement pics on a cold day in January.

Bridal shower
First RTR experience: I am 5'6 and 110 lbs. Usually I fit size 2 but decided to order size 0 and 2 and 0 fit better so I wore it for my bridal shower event. It was rather thick material so was very befitting to the event taken place in winter weather. It is neither fancy nor flashy but simple and elegant so I absolutely loved it! Wish I had kept it but I don't think that I will ever wear anything white so it's ok. Length was perfect as well. (could't post a picture because I didn't take a picture that represented the dress well)

Cute dress with the right accessories/shoes
My 3rd rental from RTR. Always great service. Fit very true to size. I'm 5'2 ish and about 134 lbs 34b bust. Wore to winter office party. Great length for my height. On arrival I was nervous-The dress looked like it had been worn quite a few times. Got a lot of compliments though. Ended up being a great 'rent'

Nice bridal shower dress!!
This dress is made of really thick material and so it feels a little stiff. It also has a little bit of a higher neckline than I was used to, but overall the dress worked great for my bridal shower in the middle of winter!! Little tough to accessorize an all white dress but I chose black pumps and earrings and it looked great!!

Perfect for the Occasion
This was absolutely perfect for my son's baptism. Even with my 3 months post-baby body, I felt entirely comfortable in the dress. I would have liked it to be a bit longer, but I was expecting that, and the length was still appropriate for a Catholic Mass. Also, I received many compliments!

Great wedding shower dress! Classy but sexy!
I wore his to my wedding shower and received several compliments! Thus fit is very flattering for pear shapes and curvy girls . I am typically a size 8 dress but the 8 was tight through the bust so I wore my backup size 10. I would order a size up for backup to be on the safe side! 5 stars loved this dress!

Perfect for my January Bridal Shower
I picked this dress to wear to my bridal shower in the San Francisco Bay in late January because it had the long sleeves and cute shape. I loved the dress, its was perfect. The fabric is thick and heavy, not a ton of stretch, so I was not able to lift my arms over my head, but that was not really needed, so didn't effect my day. Love the way the skirt stands out from the body and I would definitely recommend wearing a big statement necklace. I got both the size 2 and 4, could have worn the 4 also, was looser in the sleeves and waist and was a little bit longer, but I felt the fit of the 2 was cuter and more what I had in mind.

Bachelorette Party
This dress was perfect for daytime at my Bachelorette Party! It fits very true to size and is a great length; however, I have a small chest so I would size up if you have a larger bust. The material is thick, which was great for the cool January temperatures in Las Vegas. I would rent this dress again for any wedding function - shower, bridal luncheon, engagement pictures, etc.

Comfortable and beautiful!
I wore this dress for a work holiday party held at a fancy restaurant. It's cold during the winter where I live and the long sleeves were great to have. This dress was comfortable and yet the style and length gave it that sexy flare. Add some hot red pumps and you're set! Love this dress, would rent again!

We had heard good reviews from a friend and am glad we did. Wonderful!
The whole process was great. It was a dress for my daughter. The only cons would be the price and the length of time. In the event the dress did not work, we would have been scrambling to get a replacement which is difficult for formal wear.

I loved this dress, especially the cut and the quality of fabric. I have an hourglass shape and muscular arms, and I ended up sizing up because of the fit in the shoulders and arms. Endless compliments!

Almost perfect.
The darts in the bust area kill the look of this dress. There is nothing that can be done to smooth them down so your eyes so straight to the chest. It would have been a beautiful dress that could be easily dressed up, but I couldn't wear it. May be better for busty women.

Perfect for my bridal shower!
Researched dress for a while and decided it be perfect for my February bridal shower. Ordered size 2 & 4 and opted for the 2 to get the fitted waist style I was hoping for. Tight in arms and chest but still photographed beautifully. I truly had trouble opening gifts in this dress and moving my arms but other people had set that. Dress does not stretch at all. I didn't mind. Still got lots of compliments and paired it with a statement necklace and nude heels. Was exactly what I was looking for!

Renting through R2R has always been a breeze. I've never had any issues.
I ordered a 0 and a 2 and ended up wearing the 2. The 0 was a little too tight on my bust. I LOVED this dress and didn't want to return it. #NHLCanesCasinoNight #80stheme

comfortable and warm
It was definitely tight in the chest, and therefore, all the way around. The structure is great, it fell nicely. I definitely enjoyed wearing the dress, and being warm while out and having to walk outside in the beginning of March in Nashville. I'd definitely rent it again.

Fantastic Dress for a Dinner Party!
I wore this dress for a 40th birthday party at The French Laundry in Napa. I hadn't actually ordered this dress, in came in place of the dress I actually ordered as an alternate....and I'm so glad it did! The material is substantial and it was a cold and rainy day in Napa so I was happy that it would keep me warm. I added black tights with black booties because this was march and it's too darn cold for bare legs! The dress moved with me and fit like a glove. I only wish I had a statement necklace with me, as I was prepared to wear the other dress and hadn't needed one. This is a fantastic way to wear winter white and I stood out in a crowd of black. I loved it.
