Felt like a modern day Cinderella!

It fit true to size and flattered my figure! It was great for a spring wedding because the color just screams spring time, you don't have to worry while dancing, and it's just so beautiful! I was complemented so many times and felt like a modern day Cinderella going to a ball!

Lots of compliments

6L - 5'9" 148 lbs This dress fit well except for a gap around the armpit area. Ran true to size or slightly larger. Very comfortable all night and dancing wasn't difficult even with the length. Numerous comments on how beautiful the dress was.

Looked like a goddess!

Dress fits truth to size. Easy to wear. Loved the color against my skin tone really popped. The 16r would have fit much better. I did not receive the back up dress I needed. It was due to it being damaged. I wish I had the back up. I looked great and felt great, fit my body type well.

I felt like Cinderella!

Loved this dress! It fit me in all of the right places, I'm a little busty so finding dresses that fit me right everywhere is tricky. The neckline was very flattering and I received complements all night. If you have blue eyes, this color will look amazing on you!!

A blue dream

I wore this for a formal dinner at a conference. It was light and easy to move in - perfect after a long day. The bodice fit well enough that I was able to forgo a bra but everything stayed in place. It is low cut but just this side of too much.

Perfect spring formal dress!

You couldn't ask for a more comfortable dress. I loved the way it flowed at the bottom and I loved the color for spring. I wore 3" heels and the length was just right. You can easily wear a regular bra with this dress.

Amazing Dress

2 days before I was supposed to receive my prom dress from Rent The Runway, they told me that the one of the dress sizes of the dress I wanted couldn't be sent to me, so instead they sent this dress and another size of the dress I originally wanted. At first the images of this dress made me think it was ugly, but boy was I wrong! In person this dress is a beautiful color, insanely comfortable and hugs your body in all the right places! I have a fairly flat body, but this dress made me look great and gave me an hourglass figure! And I cannot get over how comfy this dress was!! I didn't wear this dress for my prom because the other size of the dress I had been planning for months to wear did fit, but if it wouldn't have fit I would have been more than happy to wear this amazing dress!

Great fit, comfortable, and gorgeous!

I wore this for a cousin's wedding. It was a great dress—my first rental. Very flowy and ample room in the hips. It was a bit low cut for me, a C cup, but with a little garment tape I was good to go! Comfy for all night wear. I'm 5'7" and the dress just barely hit the floor in flats, so I didn't trip over it all night even though I wasn't wearing heels most of the night. I would totally rent again.

Goddess -like!

Rented this for our daughter who wanted a pastel to go with her then-pink hair. Unfortunately the dress was very tight, but it was still amazing. She got compliment after compliment. Instead of wearing a bra, she used Hollywood tape to keep her dress in the right places. She is very large busted and while the girls were certainly on display, the dress was still tasteful.

Perfect dress for a bridesmaid!

I was a bridesmaid in a wedding and the only parameter on the dress was color. I was able to find this beautiful blue/teal dress. At first I wasn't sure about it. But it's gorgeous and flows really nicely. I liked that I didn't need a special bra for it either. So many compliments! I wore the 4 R and could have done a 2.

I wanted something that was really going to make me feel like a princess!

Great dress! It gave me that elegant vibe that I was looking for and I felt like a Victorian princess while running down stairs/hallways. It is a bit loose around the tummy area but it was perfect for me because it wasn't too tight while I was dancing.

I got so many compliments on my dress!

The dress is a great color. I received compliments all night. It slimmed down my hips while accenting my waist. However, the chest area was too loose on me so I had to wear two bras to fill it out.

Easy to spot

I was surprised at how loose this fit, but it worked well enough. It was a little big in the shoulders and a little too long, but I was able to make it work with 3" heels. This was my back up second style, and I'm glad it was the only dress that fit as I was easy to spot in a crowd of all black dresses. Lots of compliments, it's a beautiful dress.

The gown was comfortable and had beautiful flowing fabric. It was perfect for a summer wedding.

The bust area of the gown runs large and has a lot of fabric. I wore a bra, and throughout the evening and the center part of my bra was visible. I would recommend not to wear one if you could get away with it because there is ample fabric. Overall, the gown was beautiful and I enjoyed wearing it!

Runs small, didn't wear

I normally wear a 16-18, but I did not get to wear this dress. I rented the 18W, but it was damaged so they had to send me a backup dress. They also sent me the 16W, but it was WAY too small. My sister (who normally wears an 8) tried it on, and it was only a tiny bit big on her. It's too bad, because the dress is beautiful!

FABULOUS dress- feel like a classy Greek goddess

This dress was absolutely perfect for my event! It feels and looks great! It is tight in all of the places you would want it to be and it flows beautifully from the waist down. I highly recommend this to anyone thinking about renting it! I was getting compliments all night long!

Formal Wedding

This dress was perfect! It was chosen as a last minute replacement for another dress that was no longer available and what a fortunate change that was! A bit slim in the hip (I usually wear a 16W) but that was largely solved by a good pair of spanx. I pinned up the neckline just a half inch to hide my bra and the length was perfect with 4" heels (I and 5'9") I could have worn this with a regular bra, but the size of the armholes meant that the side of my bra would have peeked out on occasion. A strapless looked nicer underneath. The flow of the skirt was so lovely (especially for my formal outdoor event and dancing), everyone commented how beautiful this dress was, and I felt so glamorous! I paired it with a pair of shoulder length chandelier earrings and otherwise let the dress speak for itself.

Great dress! Felt like a Greek Goddess.

(I'm the one on the right in both pics) Okay, so confession time. I ordered the 14 and the 16, and decided to wear the 14. On the day of my prom, I grabbed the 16 and took it to my friend's house to get ready and didn't realize, so I ended up wearing it. So, yes, it was quite big on me and that's because it really was the wrong size. Anyway, as I said, I wore this to my senior prom, and I really did like it. I was worried it'd be too pale of a color and wash me out because I'm pretty fair, but it wasn't and I really liked the color. A little more of a dusty blue than the pic, I'd say. The neckline does go down pretty far, but I liked the cleavage it showed, and you can definitely pin it if you want. The gown was a little long for me even with the Regular and 2-3 inch heels, but what can you do. I do admit that I thought the middle wrapped part would be more form fitting. Even in the 14 it didn't really cinch me in the waist like I thought it would. The fabric was pretty heavy, not too much that I couldn't dance, but there's a LOT of it. I was also worried about the top not fitting, because I'm a 34G, but it had a little give, and I fixed the gapping on the side with some safety pins. Overall, a great dress, and a great first-time rental experience.

PERFECT wedding second look dress and incredibly comfortable and glam!!!

I wore this for my second look at my wedding. My colors were silver and blue and this dress was perfect! It fits like a glove on top and the 6P is the perfect length for a 5'3" petite woman. This dress is incredibly comfortable and was an absolute dream to wear after being in a tight and constricting wedding dress before hand. I was able to dance and move and breathe in this one! I received TONS of compliments too. It was beautiful and flowy and the perfect second look/reception dress!

This dress was perfect for the formal wedding I attended. I felt like a Greek goddess!

This was my first RTR experience and I am so happy! I got the 4R as a backup size because sometimes my chest is a size 0-2, but my hips are a size 2-4. However, the 2R fit absolutely perfectly. The zipper is a little hard around the ruching in the mid-section, but other than that the dress was easy. I decided to wear a bra with the dress just for extra support, even though there are cups sewed in. It definitely enhances your breast size/gives you extra cleavage so beware of that if you are going to a more conservative event. The 2R was long when I didn't have shoes on, but with my 4" heels it hovered just above the ground. The flowy fabric made it easy to dance in and I didn't have to worry about adjusting the straps or anything all night.

Light & Flowy

I rented the 12L & 14L for a formal event at work. I wore the 14 because it gave me more comfortable space in the ribcage and tick more length, but I could have worn the 12. I went without a bra (again for rib space). I'm only a B so there was a little gaping because I didn't fill it out all the way, but the dress provided enough support. I'm 6'1" and the dress was perfect length; I wore 2 1/2" heels. It was extremely comfortable, light and flowy. The picture has weird lighting from the event venue, but it's a "Cinderella" silver/blue color. Great for dancing . The gathering under the bust does wonders with giving you a defined waist and hiding a tummy

This dress was perfect for a beach wedding - very flowy and comfortable.

This dress fit perfectly - although the zipper stuck a bit. I normally wear a 16 so it was very true to size. With a 38D bust I hardly ever get to go bra-less. But when I tried this on with a bra it didn't fit quite right. Surprisingly, it looked much better without a bra! I highly recommend this dress and would totally rent it again.

This dress was so dreamy to wear!

This dress was very comfortable to wear. It's a very well made garment and I felt like I was floating on air when I walked in it. The ruching on the bodice felt a little bulky to me, but still a very pretty silhouette.

Guests thought I was in the wedding party because the color was so close; I was the wedding singer

The front is cut pretty low for a full busted woman like me who has to wear a bra (32HH) so be ready with safety pins. You can probably see the little white bow in the picture. I am a real sized 12 but needed a few centimeters room to get it zipped all the way up so I wore my long lined bra and it zipped up just fine. The 14 was too big and droopy around the arms and bust. This dress is so beautiful. I wore it to a beach wedding and it was perfect. It looks beautiful twirling around on the dance floor. I am 5'6" and the dress definitely touches the floor. Even with my heels, my feet were still covered. Beautiful dress, will absolutely rent again.

A lovely night.

This one was my back-up style so I didn't end up wearing it because I preferred my first choice gown. Although I was eventually able to get this one on when I was trying to decide, it took 3 people to get it closed. Not because it was too tight but because the rouching was so thick that my husband got too nervous to try and risk getting the zipper caught. I took it to work and was doing a comparison and they finally got it closed. It did fit but was definitely fitted through my ribs/chest so I knew I would have been more comfortable had I gone up a size. So although I thought it was lovely, and I'd consider trying it again in the larger size, I didn't end up wearing this selection.

This dress was for my son's wedding and it was beautiful.

The dress fit true to size. It was long on me even with very high heels. I'm 5'4", but did not want to order petite in case the proportions were not correct for me. I received many compliments on the dress. I did not need to wear a bra with it, as it has plenty of fabric and the dress holds you in.

Very comfortable and flattering!

I wore this dress for a fancy gala and it was amazing. Ironically, this was my third choice for dress and the two I wanted were unavailable. But when I tried it on, it was even better than it looked on the hanger or picture. The fit was flattering to my shape and I didn't need any shapewear underneath. The length was very long and even in high heels it brushed the floor. I was a little worried I'd step on and rip the bottom, but everything was fine. The color looked great with my hair color and eyes. All in all a resounding success.

This dress is gorgeous in person.

The fit is true to size and the model on our photo shoot wore a size 8. The color is really nice and is perfect for spring or summer.
