Great color and fit. Very comfortable dress!
I loved this dress. It was flattering, comfortable and a beautiful color. Great for an end-of-the-summer beach wedding. I highly recommend this dress in this color or the other, equally pretty, pink.

The dress is simple, chic, and universally flattering
Oddly, the size 4 was a little shorter than the size 2. So I went with the smaller one so I was showing a little less leg in church even though the 4 was a slightly looser and more comfortable fit.

Versatile dress for wedding. Gets compliments.
I am typically a size 4 in pants/shorts so I ordered a 4 and 6. The 4 was tight in the chest and upper waist so I ended up wearing the 6. The 6 was even a bit tight in the upper waist when I sat down. The waist is at a funny level- too low to be called an empire wasted but hits higher than the hips. But overall the dress worked out great- casual enough for the daytime and dressy for the night reception. It got a lot of compliments as well!

I rented this for my daughter's bridal shower.
I rented both the size 8 and the 10 as I'm between sizes. The 10 was perfect. Great dress, lots of compliments, loved the side pockets!

This dress is so adorable, and IT HAS POCKETS! :)
It ran true to size but heads up if you have a large chest. I wore my regular size but with a bra (no padding) I really couldn't breathe. If you look at the details on the dress you'll see these seems running down and across the chest area and they make it form fitting. They were also supportive so that I did not need to wear a bra. :) The fabric is thick and has a slight shimmer to it. Be a lady when sitting and getting in and out of cars because it is a tad short...came about mid thigh on me and I'm 5'4". I received many compliments and wore it with a light, white cardigan and heels that were sort of faded gold/silver. I also ordered the 'mystery bling' and received beautiful faded gold (perfect with my shoes) Kendra Scott Twisted Ivy earrings. They were about 3 inches long and heavy. Something I would probably never wear/buy normally, but it worked with the dress and they were perfect. Returning is a breeze. Just a thought though...be mindful of your last rental day being a Sunday.

Really loved the color for a summer wedding!
The color was perfect and the fit was good. Shoshanna typically runs large in the bust and is designed for a busty girl. I, however, am not so I usually have to get a little help from my bra. Overall was very happy with this rental. I wore with nude heels and fun earrings to complete the look.

Nice dress
I actually decided on another dress to wear, but I did really like this dress and would rent it again. It hides curves well but the top still gives you some shape. The color was great too. I didn't find a difference between the size 10 and 12 but I am normally a 10 and that fit fine.

Perfect for a Summer Wedding
I rented this dress for a wedding this summer and it worked out great. The dress was pretty true to fit but the bust was a little snug - I am in between a B and C cup so I would not recommend this for anyone who is larger than that.

Gorgeous color, really flattering cut
Really cute dress, great color, nice material. The pockets were really convenient for the wedding I went to! I'm 5'2 and the hem of the dress was about 2-3 inches above my knee. Only thing was that the dress is a little big...I usually wear size 0-2, and I was able to pinch off an inch of fabric on the side. I still got a lot of compliments, so it must not have been too noticeable.

Cute, flattering dress that garnered compliments!
The fit was comfortably snug around the chest for a 34D bra size. I loved the length (a little flirty/short without being uncomfortable for someone 5'6"), because since it's such a classic style it needs to be a little short to make it fun. Really easy to pair a big statement necklace with this. I searched everywhere online for somewhere to buy it after wearing it - reeeeally love it! I hope RTR sells this style when they're done renting it so I can snag it. :) Looks like Shoshanna is still selling some similar cuts but can't find this color anywhere.

Perfect fit!
I wore this dress to a September wedding. I was alittle concerned because the color looked Alittle too bright, but it was actually perfect. I was comfortable all night and it looked great. Im short, and a bit stocky so this dress gave my hips the space. Only thing was it holds a stain- The drops from my cold glass made quite a dark spot that took forever to dry. Other than that, it was a hit.

The dress fit perfectly. No underarm flab visible, fun to dance it, classy cut.
Fit like a glove and was very true to size. Great for a tiny waist and large hips. It showed cleavage, but not too too much where I felt uncomfortable. The kate spade necklace actually helped from feeling too exposed.

It was so easy to rent this dress and I received so many compliments on it throughout the night!
I received the dress right when it was promised. The fit was perfect. I didn't even realize that the dress had pockets so that was a bonus! I have been telling EVERYONE about rent the runway because it was such a positive experience. I will definitely do this again and hope that more girls do too!

This dress is simple yet elegant but its easy to dress it up! The pockets on the side were so useful to put like a cellphone and wallet in.

Can't wait for another event for an excuse to rent another dress!
Fabulous dress! It fit just right and I recieved a ton of compliments all night. Bust is fitting on bigger chest so be careful when choosing sizes. Was perfect, fit and proportional to give me that girlish flare, but comfortable enough to dance all night in. Thanks RTR!

Absolutely perfect!
I absolutely love this dress! I normally wear a 10, but am so happy I got the 8 as my back up size. The 10 was way too big on top, but the 8 fit perfectly all over. I received so many compliments over the course of the night. I wore this dress to a fundraiser dinner, and paired it with a great pair of Magnolia earrings that I rented through the "mystery accessory" option. I'm already thinking of possibly renting the same dress for a wedding in May! Any dress with pockets is a winner :)

The dress was absolutely wonderful
LOVED the color. The dress was beautiful. My only complaint is that the top is stretchy in back, so even if you have a good sized chest, it felt like it was falling off.

Simply adorable!
Not a rental for myself, I rented this for my 17 year old daughter to wear for a wedding. It fits true to size and the fabric and color were perfect for her age... She accessorized with the Kate Spade necklace and it made her a show stopper. She is and was ....beautiful!!!

Beautiful dress and color!
I rented this dress for a wedding and chose sizes 6 and 8. I wore the size 6 because it was a better fit than the size 8. The size 8 was bigger in the bust area, while the size 6 was snug around the mid-section (I do have a belly though) and it was a little loose around the bust area, but wearable. The color of the dress is true to its name, teal and it has pockets. I wore black stockings with my black booties to complete the look. The only thing I would change is I would have rented a bib necklace to go with the dress. Other than that, the dress was gorgeous and I was completely satisfied with my rental and Rent the Runway. Thanks!

I felt like a celebrity in this dress!
I ordered a 4 and a 6 and wore the 6 to a wedding ceremony and reception. I'm 5'0" and this dress hit very slightly above the knee. Tried the 4 first, but didn't have someone to help zip me up and couldn't do it myself. I panicked, but when I tried on the 6, I was able to zip up and the dress fit fabulously! Not sure if I would have fit into the 4, but I have a feeling the girls would have either been too smashed down or too much on display! If you're carrying around extra pregnancy weight (like me), want to conceal your belly, or are just curvy, this dress is a great choice! I'm wearing Spanx pantyhose underneath, so that helped cinch me in a bit. In the picture, it looks like my belly is sticking out a bit, but that was actually the dress pocket popping up when I struck that pose. I paired this dress with nude pumps and sparkly jewelry. This dress is sexy and figure-flattering, but still demure and tasteful. Definitely give this one a try!

This fit perfectly and I loved the color -- it was not too green. I received many compliments.
I have a larger bust and still fit in the size 4 very well. This was perfect for the bridal brunch, but would have been great for the reception too! Beautiful! Enjoy!
