Fancier than the photos show

I wore this for a wine tasting trip with friends. It was beautiful and I got compliments all day long. It's hard to tell in the photo but the pattern is embroidered on the fabric- it's not a print. So it's fancier and more formal than it looks. I'd say this is a perfect rehearsal dinner dress. Fit well, flattering. I'm between sizes right now and went with the bigger one.

Derby party hit!

Great fit, although might not be good for well endowed ladies, was tight up top, smooshed my boobs down a bit. Loved the dress and received many compliments.

Perfect derby day dress

Received many compliments. The material was thick and forgiving. Just the right length and the flare at the bottom was super cute. The color is a royal blue and the mesh back was a nice touch. I would give this a 5 star, but you could tell the dress was worn quite a bit due to some of the flowers being frayed. Overall, really cute and fun dress. Would def rent again

Perfect Banquet Dress

I wore this dress for an end of year banquet. I loved everything about it. The fit, the color, the fabric were all perfect. I could have worn the 4, my usual size, except that it was too small on the busy area. I sized up and it was fine. I loved it so much that wore it twice during the time I had it.

Outstanding dress, perfect for wedding guest

The dress fit true to size for the most part, I got a 4 and 6 and went with the 6 bc the 4 was a little too snug. I got compliments all night. It was very comfortable to wear - I wore it for my brothers wedding and so happy I chose it!

Love the color!!!

The dress runs a bit small if you're large up top. I'm a 36 D and I had to go with the size 12 for that reason. It was still a bit tight. Other than that, I received tons of compliments! Beautiful dress!

Unfortunately it didn't fit

The dress is gorgeous, I loved the pattern. I rented size 10 and 12 for backup, none of it fitted me, it was way too tight in the chest and I would feel uncomfortable all day. I think size 14 would had fit better my 36D chest.

Fantastic Belmont Stakes dress and my favorite RTR purchase yet!!

Rented this dress at the last minute for the Belmont Stakes after RTR so kindly gave me a $50 credit as a birthday gift! It is definitely my favorite rental so far. This dress fit me perfectly and was so comfortable and flattering! The detail in the flowers is so beautiful up close and the dress if very well made. The lacy detail on the right flank and the back is gorgeous and so unique. If there was an opportunity to buy rentals, I definitely would buy this dress because I would surely wear it again!

Absolutely Loved it!!

Fit perfectly, the photo doesn't do it justice. The pattern is not simply printed on but stitched on with beautiful multicolored and even a little sparkly tinsel sown in, making the print absolutely stunning up close. I wore it for graduation and received so many complements. I was afraid the white would wash me out since I am very pale but it did not. The dress actually complemented my navy robe really well. Highly recommend always ordering a backup size, I tried mine on first and it fit like a glove. The pictures on the app I feel make it look kinda boxy and loose but I found it to be more form fitting and it seemed to hug me in all the right places. Honestly wished I owed the dress.

Flattering and fun florals

I wore this for my friends wedding. I'm normally a 12, but I went with the size 14 because it was looser and wasn't pilled. The dress is a thick embroidered fabric that is really pretty, but the size 12 was a little pilled. I'm 5'9", and the dress was very short, but I wore blue short shorts under them and had no problems. Would wear again!

Beautiful Color- Short length

I loved the color and pattern of this dress but when I put it on it was a little shorter that I was comfortable wearing. I am 5'4 so short length is not usually an issue for me. The rest of the dress fit great!

Loved this dress!!!

Rented for a wedding in Michigan where I was a guest. So many compliments. Fit my body perfectly and was super flattering. Many compliments. Paired with nude strappy heels to compete the outfit. Would definitely rent again for another wedding - with different people of course :)

Adorable dress, but it was too small

The dress was adorable, unfortunately it was a little too tight and short for me. I normally wear a size 8, but a size 10 would have been a better fit.

Gorgeous fabric and detail!!

This is an absolutely gorgeous dress. I am usually a size 6 or 8 and I only ordered the 8. It was wearable but a bit loose in the waist area- I would have worn a 6 if I had the option. The detail of the fabric is excellent- this is a killer deal for the dress. It feels very well made and high quality. It got compliments all night long. Highly recommend!

LOVE!!

While it was smaller and a bit shorter than I was expecting, LOVE this dress! I wore it in 90 degree outdoor wedding and it never showed sweat marks or wrinkles. Plus the lace on the back gave room for air to flow.

Perfect dress for my brother-in-laws rehearsal dinner. Fit perfectly and wasn't too low in the front. Length was great too! Fabric is beautiful in person with embroidered not just printed flowers. Overall another great rental!!

Desk to Dinner perfection

This dress was so cute! It's flared skirt made it perfect for wearing with a cardigan on at work, then the eyelet back was cute for dinner or drinks after work. Fabric doesn't wrinkle, and stays put in the wind.

Cute dress with fun shape!

This was such a sweet dress and it was super comfortable to wear! I rented through unlimited and wore it to work (with a cardigan since the back is transparent!) and then to a Broadway show. I loved the material and the pretty shape it creates, and liked the length on my short frame. One note for the small-chested: I felt like I couldn't get away without a bra because the chest area would have been large, but even the nude bra I wore was visible through the lace panel in the back.

Flattering Look!

I wore this dress to the office and got lots of compliments and then I wore it for my husband's birthday dinner and I loved it for both. It creates a very flattering silhouette. Because the skirt flirts out it hides the belly! The detail on the dress is embroidered which shows how well made it is. Also the back of the dress is stunning!

The details on this dress were gorgeous up close and the fabric was really nice. It does run small in the chest area, so I went up a size. The rest of it fit me like a glove!

Perfect Bridal Shower Dress

I LOVED this dress!! The reviews were extremely helpful. I'm on the taller side (5' 10") and I thought it was extremely flattering on my combination of height and curves. I love the dress style itself which is why I'm giving it a 5-star rating, but I was rather disappointed with the quality and condition of the dress when I received it. It had a couple of tears and pulls in the fabric. Hoping someone from RTR notices this. Love the dress otherwise though. And received SO many compliments.

Adorable wedding guest dress!

First RTR rental. Almost perfect fit--snug in arm/breast area. Improved with non-fitted bra. Very comfortable. Arrived on time and in great condition. Received a lot of compliments on this dress--the only thing that would make this dress better? Pockets! Thicker material, but not heavy or too much. Highly recommend.

Fun for daytime spring/summer wedding

It was just a little snug so you may want to order up or get shapewear. I am a 36D and it was a little tight around the bust, but not too bad.,I thought it was lovely for a daytime summer wedding! It does look a lot more formal in person than some of the photos appear

Perfect for my daughters baptism

This was a good dress, it felt good and sturdy on, matches well with others outfits. Would be good for a wedding. I used a silky cami to cover my cleavage as I wanted to tone my well endowment down. This is very true to size but if you are unsure of your actual size size up. It's just I knew my RTR size.

Sexy & flattering

I wore this dress to a fundraiser event. The dress had a hole in the seam, but it wasn't noticeable & I notified RTR & they offered to overnight me a dress. I didn't have to wear any type of bra due to the dress being fitted in that area. Lots of cleavage, so beware if you are a little modest. The skirt part of the dress is very flattering and the lace in the back and side adds a little sexiness without being over the top. Side note, the zipper was very tricky and I had to get a friend to help me zip it up. #PPP2018

Great Bridal Shower Dress

I loved the color and style of this dress. The fit was a bit snug and I am glad I sized up. I couldn't wear a bra but it was tight enough even with my larger chest. Definitely looks prettier in person than online!

Cute dress, but flares at the bottom and was too short. This is the first time I have rented from Rent the Runway and haven't been able to wear either dress. If you are curvy on the bottom, stay away from this dress.

Great for apple shapes with chubby tummies and skinny legs!

I'm a 12 and pictured is the 14. 5' 4" 160 pounds. I wore medium spandex underneath because I carry my weight in my tummy primarily. Great dress for me with my skinny legs. I wore this to a rehearsal dinner but would also have worn it to the wedding. Endless compliments.

Didn't fit even when sized up

I ordered a 12 because I normally wear a 10 and reviews said order up. It was still too tight across the chest. I'm a 34 DD.
