I couldn't wait to pose for pictures in this dress!
This dress was perfect for the occasion--beautiful color and comfortable! For my height, it's a little short, especially for dancing, but overall a great dress.

I got so many compliments. In that way it was great for me - and very easy to tell "my happy story" of RTR.
Dress super comfortable. Would like it in my closet - easy to accessorize, pops with color for different attitude - or event; can be classic, or a bit more fun! RTR chat was helpful. YAY! RTR - A generous size 2, could have worn 0 - but decided on 2 because fabric really was lovely, and it looked "richer"... many compliments still.

Cute dress - great color!
The color of the dress is much cuter in person than in the pictures. It was adorable on the hanger! Unfortunately, it was way too big for me. I just looked like a big blue blob of curtain. (The fabric is pretty heavy.) I would not recommend this dress for girls D+, as I already had a ton of cleavage in this dress as a D. I ended up wearing a different option from RTR.

great simple dress!
I wore this dress to a friends wedding in May. I paired it with a pair of nude pumps and a statement necklace and loved it. I danced all night comfortably. It was just on the border of being too short for me, so taller gals may want to take note of it. I still wore it and didn't think it looked bad. A great, simple dress to accessorize for any event!

Great dress for a wedding
The dress is pretty true to size - I normally wear an 8 in dresses and this one fit very well. The straps were slightly too long but that's a common problem I have and it wasn't a real problem although I did wear a strapless bra so that my straps wouldn't show. I loved the pockets which are just right for a lipstick and few tissues. It was cute, fun to dance in, and I got a lot of compliments on it.

Great dress
I enjoyed my first rental with Rent the Runway. This was a great dress for the casual military event I attended. Can easily be dressed up or down. I'm real curvy in the hips but for those who are there is plenty of room. Very comfortable dress.

Kinda blah
I rented this as a back-up for a wedding but didn't end up wearing it. The dress definitely ran large and the bust area especially was unflattering. I don't think the seaming details showed up as well in person so the dress looked rather plain. I really liked the pockets, though! I think for a less formal event this dress would've been fine, but you'll want some fun accessories to jazz it up.

Gorgeous material, gorgeous color.
This dress was beautiful!! I have to admit, I ordered this is in a size 0, but was sent a 6 instead. An easy mistake to make, considering the 6 on the tag looks like a 0. However, this worked out perfectly for me since the size 0 would have been too small and too short. I had to wear a very padded bra and belt it to make it work, but it was so worth it. The color is perfect for all seasons, and the fit was perfect for a wedding where we danced the entire night.

This dress can be dressed up or down, depending on your event. I wore pearls, but could easily see that diamonds would look great as well. It has pockets too, which was a nice surprise. Recommend it. Tried to upload picture, but link isn't working.

This dress was perfect for my casual wedding.
This fit perfectly and was very forgiving! I have a small bust and larger hips and this worked well with my body. It runs true to size and maybe even a bit larger. I loved the color and got many compliments. The photo looks almost as if it is satin, but it had a beautiful material. I will be renting another dress soon!

The dress was super cute and flirty! And the color was fantastic!! I think you definitely need a necklace or something to make it a tad more interesting- but overall- Loved this dress and it was super comfy

It was a beautiful dress but not great on me.
I sized up to fit my bust, and that part of the dress looked great! But I didn't like the skirt; it flared out too much on my hips.

Such a fun dress!
very flattering fit. the neckline is great especially if worn with a chunky necklace. where the dress gathers at the waist, it flairs out quite a bit which is why I wore the smaller size. Still very cute though!

Flattering party dress!
I rented this dress as a back up, but when the original didn't fit, I decided not to wear this dress either because it is very similar to others in my closet. I've also rented this dress in teal and the navy was probably 3" longer than the teal version. Not great for me because I'm short, but might be helpful for taller women.

Classic Dress
I rented this for a fall wedding. The cut is flattering overall; the bottom of the dress poufs out, so it's forgiving and comfortable. The bust was very snug on me though, which made the back fit tightly, too. I should have paid more attention when it said it was best for A-C cups. Basically if it had been a little bigger in the bust, it would have been a perfect fit for me. The style of this dress is very classic and simple. As other reviewers said, it does look a little bridesmaid-y. I showed it to a co-worker and she asked if I was in the wedding! It's easy to dress up with a statement necklace and heels but don't rent this one if you're looking to really stand out. The fabric is thick and slightly shiny and ridged (sort of like grosgrain).

Gorgeous color! Great fit!
Great for an hourglass figure: accentuates a small waist, showcases decolletage, enables you to look great while breathing (exhaling). The color and fabric are rich. This was just a date night so we forgot to take photos. Sorry ladies!

Runs Large
I rented this as a back up dress for my rehearsal dinner. It was gigantic! It was a nice dress though--great material, quality craftsmanship. I probably should have ordered the 0. You live and learn I suppose.

Got lots of compliments
I loved this dress. It was a beautiful fabric and a vibrant color. I got lots of compliments on it at the formal holiday party I attended. It's great for a pear shaped person like me.The dress was also comfortable to wear. My only minor complaint is that the straps were a bit too long for me and gaped a little bit.

It is a nice quality dress; however, it runs very large.
I am 100 pounds and 5'3" and I ordered a size 0. It was very large especially in the bust area. I am a 32B and it hung down and essentially looked like a bag. I had to return it for merchandise credit. Also, the dress is much longer in person than in the picture. It almost came down to below my knees!

Love this dress for a special occasion date night!
I thought the dress was more purplish but loved the deeper blue color when it arrived. It ended up being cold that night so I did tights and a sweater. Very comfortable. It was snug in the chest so did not need to wear a bra. Loved the pockets!

Great dress
This was my back up dress, so I didn't wear it (although, I almost made dinner reservations just to go out in it!). I am in between a 6 and an 8. I would have worn the 8, the top on the 6 was slightly more snug than I would have liked. But the 6 would have worked if it needed to. I went with my other dress selection because the full skirt on this dress was a little much for me, and the length with the full skirt, made it feel a little less mature...and not as age appropriate for me. Great construction, amazing quality, beautiful color.

really pretty dress
first of all, the color is lighter than the picture suggests, which i think is a good thing. its more of a bright purple-blue. perfect dress if you have a bigger butt/thighs and smaller waist. definitely order whatever size you wear on top, not bottom, since it is not fitted on the bottom. wear with a big necklace. i got tons of compliments.

Beautiful dress, didn't fit
I ordered this to wear to a wedding and was so excited when it arrived! It's such an adorable dress but my heart broke when I couldn't zip it. I normally wear a size four and I ordered a six as back up but neither of them had enough room in the bust. I don't recommend this to anyone who has more than a C cup. Fortunately, I order a backup dress which fit fabulously! I hope this helps any of my fellow chesty girls not waste a rental on this one.

The dress was beautiful and made me feel great!
I rented this dress for a Saturday night wedding in November. It was perfect for the occasion! I paired it with opaque black tights and black suede booties. The color on this dress is a really beautiful deep blue. It fit really well, but if you have a large chest like I do it will be kind of tight in the chest area. I don't think I could have gone to a bigger size because the 6 fit perfectly elsewhere. Anyone with a large chest and small waist will understand this dilemma! I also loved the pockets. Will definitely rent this dress again!

The dress was a little bit snug, but that was my own mistake for ordering and 2 and 4, instead of a 4 and 6. Overall the experience was great and will definitely use RTR again!

Dress comically poufy
When I ordered this dress I ended up going with my backup option. As others have said, the skirt is very full. On me, the dress fit through the torso and then belled out comically at the skirt—it made me look like I had cartoon-like wide hips with how far it puffed out. The material and color were really pretty, but the dress made me look so silly that I went with the other dress I had ordered.

Flattering and comfortable dress for a night out.
I ordered an 8 and a 10 and, although the 8 fit me better on the bottom (less poofy of a skirt), the 10 fit best at the top. The skirt is very forgiving as it isn't form fitting at all and contrasts nicely with the more fitted top. I could have worn the dress with or without a bra but found it looked best with one. Black hose and black heels made the look work for a cold and rainy night in December.

Beautiful bright blue!
This truly is a beautiful dress! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to wear it. I have a somewhat exaggerated hourglass figure, and while the waist of the dress fit well, it was too tight on my bust.

Awesome color and a very flattering cut.
The dress was great - a great cut and length. I am 5'6" and it hit just above my knees. I'm consistently a size 4, but this dress did run a little large in the chest. I dressed it up with a gold necklace and bracelet and a pair of nude pumps and it looked great!

Loved this dress. Wore it to a wedding last weekend and the silhouette was perfect for my body type, hiding any misgivings. I did wear a bra with it to fill out the bust a little bit (Im about a 34B), but that worked fine for me. The dress has a real iridescence to it that I don't think comes through completely in the picture, but it is beautiful. Skirt was not too poofy. It was a little longer than I expected, especially since I'm tall. It came a few inches above the knee, but again I still loved it. Finally, I think I could have gone a size down. I ordered the 10 (I'm always a true 10), but I'm pretty sure the 8 would have been just as good. Hard to tell, but a 12 was way too big. Accessorized with gold/bone bangles and earrings and nude sling backs. So fun!

I LOVED this dress! I wore it to my bridal shower and got so many compliments. I'm a 2 or a 4 depending on the dress, this one I wore the 4. I'm short, so it hit just above the knee, but looked adorable!!
