This was my first time RTR-ing, and everything worked out perfectly!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and received many compliments on it. I paired it with the Mother of Pearl Bridal Belt which perfectly completed the look for which I was going! I felt the dress ran true to size and was even a little shorter than expected (I had to sit with caution while opening gifts!). Otherwise, this dress worked well for my big event!!

LOVE! Perfect for wedding-related events!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was perfect for my wedding rehearsal and dinner. I had originally planned to make this my "party" dress at the wedding reception, but when it arrived I realized that the straight skirt wasn't very conducive to dancing. I ordered this dress in a 2 & 4. The 2 fit very nicely, but the 4 had a little more breathing room, so I opted for that one, as we were serving italian food (carb-loading ;)) at the rehearsal dinner. I felt amazing in it, and received many compliments! I wore this dress with the Ben Amun love letter earrings and it was a great combination. Thank you Rent the Runway!

Wonderful white lace dress for a bridal shower

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I absolutely loved this dress for my bridal shower and got many compliments on the style. My only gripe about the dress I personally received is that the slip layer seemed a little long and was showing below the lace. I was able to tuck it up so that it wasn't showing but it seemed like someone might have thrown this in the wash (typically why that tends to happen). Overall though, it fit well and was true to size.

Bridal Shower Perfection

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I wore this dress for my bridal shower and it was absolutely perfect. The lace is stunning and it fit like a glove. As far as size: I am 5'7" and between 135 and 140lbs. I range between a 4 and a 6; a 4 typically fits everywhere but my shoulders and bust. My shoulders are broad; i think an 'athletic build' is an appropriate description. I went with the 6 and happy that was my choice. When sitting and opening gifts, there was a slight tug across my neck but I believe that was due to how I was sitting and my broad shoulders. Really, I ended up barely noticing it. Thanks RTR!!

Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress to my bridal shower and it was perfect. I ended up wearing the 6 because the 8 was a little damaged and while it fit, it was a little tight around my neck. I would definitely recommend this dress. Perfect length and very comfortable.

I loved this dress! I got numerous compliments throughout the night. The fit was very flattering and it's a perfect summer dress for any special event. I normally wear a size 6 but felt like the bust area was a little tight, so the 8 worked out much better for me. I would definitely recommend this dress!!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small

The length was perfect for me (I'm 5'2 and it fell right above the knee) It is loose around the stomach - so if you are looking for a tighter dress you may want to size down The slip does show, but I didn't find it to be a big deal - overall a classy and elegant dress, perfect for an engagement party or bridal shower!

Wore for family photo shoot - photographed and fit well

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

This was a backup to a nude reem acra dress that wasn't the right color for me. Loved how this turned out in pictures though was a little off in fit in the back and there was some wear to it. If I didn't have such a big chest I think i could have fit in the 6. So if you're smaller up top you probably can wear your usual size.

I really enjoyed wearing this dress and got a ton of compliments. I wore it to my first bridal shower and it really made me feel like a bride - I loved the lace detailing and the fit was comfortable throughout the event - sitting, standing, even hugging. I'd say rent this dress :) It truly is gorgeous.

Perfect for my Rehearsal Dinner--felt beautiful and bridal

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Great first experience with RTR. I ordered this dress in a 4 and 2, hoping desperately I could wear one of them for my Rehearsal Dinner (I had a backup if not...) The 4 fit like a glove--not too short, great cinching at the waist, and not too tight on my back or boobs. My skin is super sensitive but I hardly noticed the lace; the dress was very comfortable. My main issue with the dress, as others have mentioned, is that the slip came below the lace part of the dress, so I had to get creative with "pinning" it up. This happened on both of my sizes, but with my own tweaking, I got compliments all night long.

Pretty but not memorable

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The 6 was a little tight in the neck, but the 8 made me look boxy so I wore the 6. Both had the problem of the slip being longer than the lace which was even worse when I was sitting. No stretch in either the slip or lace, so everything rode up when I sat down. This dress was also cinched in a weird place for me because I'm so tall. I did like the length when I was standing and the back was interesting, but high enough for a strapless bra. I liked being able to rent it because I wouldn't wear it often, but it was perfectly bridal for my wedding shower.

This dress was amazing! I wore it as a bridesmaids dress and really felt amazing all night. I got so many compliments. i was afraid it was going to be too short on me since I'm 5'10 and was wearing a size 2 with heels, but it wasn't at all. It was fine for dancing, no flashing!

Absolutely perfect for my courthouse wedding ceremony. So happy with my choice!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was amazing- even better than I expected it to be. Both sizes I ordered (4 & 6) fit very well and I actually wore them both, the 4 for the ceremony and the 6 out to dinner that night. I got so many compliments and felt like such a bride. I would recommend this dress to anyone looking for the perfect wedding dress to feel beautiful and elegant. It was both sexy and sophisticated - long enough almost to my knees and covered up top but sheer enough to feel pretty. I am 5'10, 133 pounds and fit great. Will definitely be renting from rent the runway again. The whole experience could not have gone any better!! Thanks rtr!!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered this dress to wear for my wedding reception, it was the perfect selection. It looks gorgeous in pictures but looks so much more gorgeous In person, I received so many compliments!!! The dress is very true to size, I normally wear a 10 and that is the one that fit the best. The material is very light and overall the dress was comfortable and I didn't have to wear a bra with it as there was a built in one. The only con would be that the lining was a little longer than the lace (I just tucked under the bra part and it fixed the problem!) Overall, I am very happy that is is the dress I chose, excellent first experience with RTR! :-)

I rented this dress for my bridal shower.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I got the 10 and 12, but ended up not wearing either dress even though both sizes fit me (the 10 was just a little snug). The lace was so itchy, especially around the neck line, and it made me feel claustrophobic. I ended up going shopping the next day to get a different dress to wear for my shower so I wouldn't have to wear this one. I really wanted to like the dress but it just was not comfortable at all. The dress was long enough for me though, and it fit my chest size. Just so itchy!!

It fits like a glove.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

Pros: the quality of lace is exquisite. Definitely not those stretchy kind of lace dress you find in the mall. Cons: I had to iron the lace near shoulder and back area since they were curled up. It did look like it was worn before but some ironing helped refreshing the overall appearance. The bottom part looks a bit different from the picture as inside lining were longer than lace in front. Slight stitching helped holding up the lining where it supposed to be for that evening.

A beautiful Shoshanna dress for my rehearsal & grooms dinner!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress for our rehearsal and grooms dinner for our wedding. Shoshanna has always been a good designer for me because I have larger hips and a smaller waist. This fit me perfectly! The built in bra was great. Like the other reviews said, the hem did show under the lace so I just pinned it up. The dress was super comfortable, didn't ride up at all. And at 5'7" it was the perfect length. I paired this with a Kate Spade sparkly gold clutch from RTR and got compliments all night long!

I rented the 6 and 8 and went with the 6. Pro: Perfect Bridal Shower dress! Great for full bust, didn't need a bra. Con; when the dress arrived the lace detail did not lay correctly and I had to take to the dry cleaner to get pressed. It was great after that! As others have mentioned, the inner slip was too long.

I loved the style of the dress. However, I did have some functional issues. First, the straps in were too long in the back. Secondly, the lining was about 2-3 inches longer than the lace. Both issues were solved with some pinning. This was my first rental. If it becomes a regular occurrence I probably wont continue to rent. This issue was minor enough though that I'll give them another try in the future.

Perfection

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I had THE hardest time finding the perfect dress for my engagement party. I came across this dress on RTR and thought it would fit my body perfect, and I was right! For someone who's very busty on top, and thinner on the bottom, this was perfect, as it lifted and shaped my figure. I will agree with the other comments that the slip underneath runs longer than the beautiful embellished lace, but with heels, you're good. Only thing I didn't like was the built in corset. There are some pictures of me where you can see the bottom of the corset popping through the dress. Otherwise, definitely recommend this to all shapes and sizes!

This classy dress was perfect for my outdoor wedding rehearsal. It was elegant and the lace detail was so beautiful! The dress is very fitting and comes with its own corset type thing so I didn't even have to wear a bra. It was easy to move in, but just a little too long for my petite build. I would highly recommend this dress to any bride-to-be!

Ordered a 2 and 4, could fit in both, the two was slightly too small in the chest ( am a 32 C) Over all I got a lot of complements and the dress was very pretty. I dressed it up with a belt. The Cons: The 4 had some wear around the sleeves, but was not that noticeable. The inner lining kept showing, I would recommend some hem tape for a quick fix .

I wore this dress for my bridal shower this past weekend. It was a hit. Lots of compliments, and the lace overlay was beautiful. I had friends on neckline patrol though because the lace couldn't decide whether it wanted to be in or out. This dress runs a little big. Usually a 2/4 and the 0 fit me perfectly, the 2 was just a little too boxy. Super comfy and easy to wear all afternoon.
