I wore this dress to an evening Summer wedding in Auburn, Massachusetts.
This is my third Rent the Runway dress and my first time posting a review. While I enjoyed all my previous rentals, my experience with this dress was exceptionally good. Echoing some other reviewers, if you want to receive compliments all night - rent this dress. I rented this dress for a wedding, and before I could even take my seat on the shuttle bus to the venue, I had gotten two compliments! And that trend continued all evening long.
The dress is very flattering, it is stretchy enough to hug your curves, but doesn't pull up or fit too tightly. I did find it ran small. I usually wear a 6 but the 8 fit perfectly.
The low V neckline is balanced out by the longer length of the dress. I'm 5'7" and it hit a few inches above my knee. That being said, there is a shockingly high slit on the back side of the dress. I had to be careful sitting down, and there was absolutely no bending over. The slit is the only reason this dress gets 4 stars instead of 5.
I was a little nervous about renting a dress that is more fitted around the hemline, since I usually order dresses that flare around the legs, but the stretchiness made that a non-issue.
