Cute maybe, on someone else

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This wasn't very flattering on me--it made me look like I had a very thick torso. It fit well, but it wasn't as flattering as most fit/flare dreses are on me. Also, the top was too big on me, and I coudln't fill out the chest area, making the dress puff out a bit in back. But I'm also VERY pear shaped (I'm almost 2 sizes smaller on top than I am on bottom), and I very often have problems with dresses that are too large on top, but that fit on the bottom (or vice versa), so most other people probably wouldn't have the same problem if they rented the dress. It was ok, but not great, so I ended up returning the dress and wearing something in my closet that's more flattering.

Too Large In Chest

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I ordered a size 0 and it was too large especially in the chest for my 5' 6" stature with a 32B sized chest . There was too much room in the chest to wear this dress without a bra and even with a push-up bra on it had too much room. It is a gorgeous color and dress so I would recommend it to anyone with a larger chest size.

Beautiful color & dress! Very well made.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I knew when I ordered this dress, they didn't have my normal size available but since it said to size down I took a chance and ordered the one size smaller that was available. The size smaller was definitely snug around the waist, but more poofy in the hips than it shows in the model's picture so I ended up just wearing it. I'm a size B and the chest was super small! I wouldn't suggest it for anyone with a bigger chest.

A Sweet yet Sassy Dress- Beautiful Color!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I actually had the awesome privilege to go to the Rent the Runway Showroom and try on a bunch of dresses for some upcoming weddings I have to attend. The ladies there were awesome and out of all the dresses I tired on at the store that I loved- this had to be my least favorite of the bunch. The dress is beautiful made and a comfortable fit- but the cut in the front is super low. I was a bit nervous that that I would be showing my "ladies" at some point in the night. I did however love the color and the cut of the dress- it just felt really light and fun! I would go for a smaller size since I would want the top of my dress to fit a little bit tighter- But I did love the dress and had a great time wearing it!

This dress was a huge hit!! I received compliments all night long and just loved wearing it.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered the 4 & 6, only the size 6 was delivered, thankfully it was a perfect fit. The color is so rich, even prettier than in the photos. I wore this dress to a daytime church wedding, followed by a Country Club reception on the Intracoastal waterway in Jupiter, FL. This dress is great for warm weather as it is a very light material. Do allow yourself time to press the pleats to get the look that the RTR model has. I wore wedge sandals that had the same color in them and a fun beaded green necklace. It is very low cut as you can see but I did not need the tape to feel secure. If you are larger in the bust, beware, it might not cover much up!! I loved this dress and wish I owned it!! I will rent it again. I emailed RTR that I only received one dress and received a response the same day. Thank you RTR for doing such a great job!!! P.S. I love the Neutrogena lip gloss.

cute little dress

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was really cute. I should have read the details a little more closely because I didn't realize it was cotton and not a dressier fabric, but it was still fine as the wedding I went to wasn't formal. I have a pretty small upper body, but usually wear a 2 or a 4, the 2 was still a bit big on me but it looked fine. If you have a small chest and rib cage I definitely recommend sizing down. the bottom half isn't fitted at all which I loved.

Love this fun colored dress and the full skirt!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was really cute and fun but there were some aspects that I wasn't crazy about. While it runs true to size I felt like it fit a little weird in the bust and was a little tight. It has a low v so not all bra's will work. It's really fitted up top too so a bra may not even be necessary. The skirt is full and a really easy fit but I felt like it was really short on me so I'd probably steer clear of this dress if you're over 5'7"

Flattering and fun

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I'm a 0/2 (rather than just a 2 as the profile says) and wore the 0 in this one and I'd say it runs true to size. The chest is snug which I LOVED because it's hard to find that for me with a small bust. If you have a bigger bust, you will want to size up, I'd say. I didn't get any pics but should have! Wasn't too short on me at all and I'm 5'6". Great dress and it garnered lots of compliments!

Dress is beautiful, color is great the cotton material breaths a lot, it is overall a fun dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress came with a small seem rip on one of the pleats in the back. If i didn't press it before the event I would not have noticed. To get the look of the model I pressed and steamed right before my even. The dress came dry-cleaned, but to me still needed steaming to get the wrinkles out. It is cotton so it did not take a lot of time. The deep V is fantastic, I am a 34D and defiantly no bra needed. I got loads of complements from the ladies at the party. I want to buy this dress!

Pretty dress.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I was worried this dress would be too short, but it was just fine, and I even wore the size 2! So, if you're tall but small chested, don't worry- it should be long enough. I could see tall women with larger chests having problems with length in the front though. Also- I had a free rental on my account so I got this for a cocktail party with a casual dress code. I wore it with flats and it fit in just fine. The material is a heavy cotton and the color is very salmon. Its a nice, preppy, classy style, but its not exactly a fancy, attention-grabbing dress. I wouldn't select it for a formal occasion, mostly because of the material.

I was disappointed in the quality of the dress for how expensive it is. It came wrinkled and had clearly been worn many times. After steaming it however I got it to look presentable and loved the style.

It fit perfectly. Only problem I had was that the deep v had a couple crinkles along the edges that I couldn't iron perfectly... otherwise it was 100% perfect!! And, since I rented an awesome pearl necklace to go with it, you couldn't even see the crinkles!!

Flattering Color and Fit!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I'm a 0/2 and wore the 0 in this one and I'd say it runs true to size. It's a well-made, flattering dress and the color is beautiful and would compliment a lot of skin tones. The chest was tighter than I expected but it was great for my small bust. If you have a bigger bust, you would want to size up. The dress was perfect for dancing and I received a lot of compliments on it!

This dress was amazing. I am small chested, so the "squishing" on top that other people mentioned really acted as a bra to create the hottest cleavage ever. It fit perfectly and looked amazing. The event I wore it for kind of flopped so I did not get to enjoy the dress like I had hoped. I WILL rent this again!

Not super thrilled with this one....

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I ended up not wearing the dress for a couple reasons -- mostly the fit. The 4 was my size, but the V neck didn't lay flat against my skin so it was a full-on boob/bra shot. I have an average size chest but even double sided tape wouldn't have helped. I was also surprised by the dullness of the color/fabric. It looks great in everyone's pictures before me, so I'm not sure if the dresses are a little worn or if I just expected something different -- but either way I had to return them unworn.

Great outfit!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Fun dress - I wore it with gold heels and colorful Elizabeth Cole earrings. The material has no stretch, which was particularly noticeable at the bust. I usually wear a 4, but ended up going with the 6 - the dress would have looked ill-fitting otherwise. The neckline is a very deep-V, so I had a to wear a deep plunge bra and fashion tape with it to make sure everything stayed in place. (If you're not as well-endowed, sticky boobs would work great with this!) Overall a great choice, but definitely order up if you're bigger than a C cup.

The dress was a little worn with the bust beginning to tear but it was so beautiful and flattering I still wore it. The color looks great with a tan and it definitely accentuates cleavage, so if you're super busty beware. Overall another RTR success

The fabric on this dress was very informal looking. The front was very low cut and the front of the skirt was WAY too short. I didn't think it was appropriate for a wedding. The fabric is not as drapey as it looks in the photo on the model.

I wore this to a Thursday evening wedding. It felt flirty and fun.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The neck line is rather low. In my opinion this could be a nice, flattering detail or an inappropriate call...it really depends on your bust size. The skirt is also on the shorter side. I felt flirty in the dress although I wish it felt slightly more formal. I worked fine for the wedding I attended. It was a weekday evening and the attire ranged from maxi dresses to more formal cocktail dresses (read: sequins).

I wish I had ordered the dress in a smaller size but nevertheless it was a beautiful dress that really made my skin color pop! I was complimented all night on how beautiful it was. It was very comfortable and the hem on the bottom really made a difference. I was scared it would be too short but that hem, made it perfect! Even to this day, women who ended up in different sororities remember me in that dress! Another amazing RTR experience!

I couldn't wear the dress, I have long legs (as does the model in the picture) and ended up looking like a teeny-bopper instead of a woman. The dress came way too high in the front. The picture is deceiving. I wore another dress instead.

Not for busty girls!!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I love the look of this dress - it's a beautiful color and a fun cut with the deep v and full skirt but I was weary after having read some the other reviews so I ordered it as much back-up. There is absolutely NO give in the fabric and it literally made me look like I had 4 boobs. I am about 5'9", athletic and am usually a 10-12 and am busty - the darts cut in to the point that instead of the fabric stretching, it just mashed my chest down. Very cute style - but I don't recommend if you're busty.

This is a very beautiful dress! I LOVED the color, especially for a May wedding and the material was very comfortable. The reason I only gave it 4 starts was for 2 reasons. 1-My chest looked ridiculous in the dress, squished with or without a bra and 2-the pockets to me seemed to be for children's hands (and I have small hands and wrists). Other than those 2 things, I would highly recommend the dress (maybe if you are a small C or smaller).
