I couldn't wear this dress.
I actually couldn't wear this dress because it was too big in the top. I'm a bit top heavy, and it was even loose on me.

Love love loved it
I wore this dress to a friend's wedding and absolutely loved it! I'm 5'7", and it fell a few inches above my knees. I was pleasantly surprised by the length as I was expecting it to be shorter. I have a large ribcage, so I followed the fit advice and ordered a size up from my regular size, which is an 8. The 10 fit perfectly. As other reviewers have noted, you cannot wear a bra with this dress. I wore cups and used three pieces of fashion tape to keep everything in place. I put one piece at the chest and one on each of the shoulders to keep it from falling down. This worked perfectly, and I felt secure in the dress the whole night. The dress is incredibly flattering and well-made, and I'm so sad that I can't buy it!

This dress was beautiful, I didn't end up wearing it, but by Sister did and she looked great!
Definitely get some double sticky tape, and apply it properly!

For my formal
If you have a wide ribcage, size up! I fit into the 8, but could not zip up all the way. This is a great dress-- very light fabric, which makes it great to dance in.

Make sure you are ok with the proportions.
The waist was perfect but might be small if you are a larger size 2. The top was quite loose though, and I am actually larger on top so might be a problem if you are smaller busted. I would have preferred more fitted top.

awesome dress, but was unable to wear.
the dress was in great condition, except for the clasp in the back. it was worn and looked as if it had been stretched. when on it looked as if it gapped, and so i didn't feel comfortable wearing it. i was dissappointed because it was a great dress. also impressed with the professionalism of the site and delivery. I will for sure use the site again.

Loved the dress, received a lot of compliments!
Very narrow in the waist, I generally wear a size 6 but ordered the 8 just in case and wound up wearing the 8!

Beautiful dress for a Formal Affair
The dress was gorgeous, especially the color, the back of the dress, and detailing on the waist. The dress was longer, which was perfectly conservative for the event I attended. However, the biggest problem I encountered was the top of the dress--it was entirely too big and gapped. I had to apply a mass amount of fashion tape so that my bra didn't fall out of the dress. The front simply does not fit very well, but the rest of the dress was fantastic and perfect for the event.

Beautiful dress but didn't quite fit :(
The band around the waist is very tight and does not give. I barely fit in it, but if I had wanted to eat a single thing all night, it would not have worked. The chest/hip area are flexible and I really liked the way the 4 fit in those areas (especially because the fabric is fairly loose in the chest area), but the band was too tight and I was not able to order the 6 as a backup. I have worn this dress in black before and loved it! TIP: It works well to use double-sided fashion tape to tape the fabric to my chest to keep it from buckling open when I bend over.

Sexy and fun! Perfect for a night out in Vegas!
I wore this dress for a fun night out in Vegas. I am usually a size 6 or 8, but I sized up because I do have a wide rib cage and was concerned because of the fitted nature of the midsection. I definitely made the right choice. The color of this dress is beautiful and the fabric is very nice. Exactly what I expected from the photo. I did have a lot of trouble with the bra situation - you really can't go braless because the front is so low (and I'm a 36C). On that same note, I did end up pinning the front up and I'm usually not super modest, but thought it would work out better. Otherwise, loved the dress!!!

Elegant yet fun!
Beautiful dress! It's a lovely color and the partially open back is very fun. It's also very comfortable. Two issues: (1) the clasp on the back kept getting unhooked, and (2) the chest area was a little bit baggy on me. I think it's a very versatile dress that I would consider purchasing because I could see wearing to different events.

Felt incredible in this dress!
I rent this dress for a bachelorette party for my sister. I loved the vut of this dress because there was enough cleavage to make it sexy but still a bit conservative; our mother was at the event. This photo was taken just after the dress arrived but once everything was put together (hair, and make up) it was positively stunning. I felt so beautiful in this dress and recieved so many complimnents. Thanks Rent the Runway for another hit!

I didn't love the fit or style on me
I got this dress as an extra option and it was too large for me to wear. I am a 36 C and it was too large all over. My friend wore it with a tank top underneath and she looked awesome!

Pretty dress. Great color. Can't wear a bra though b/c of the design in the back, which was problematic for me b/c I'm a smaller bust size, so the front was too loose. Just didn't fit right up top.

Have to agree with the other reviewers.. only rent if you are B or C cup and comfortable going bra-less. If you are, it is a very easy, flattering dress and although I don't think the fashion tape was absolutely necessary, I used it anyway "just in case"

Great dress! Really made a wonderful hourglass figure. However, as previously renters noted, was unable to wear a bra with the dress. Being a bigger bust size, this was problematic. The top was just too loose as well. Maybe a perfect dress if your willing to make modifications and wear it for a night out.

Very cute dress, but it does require special attention because if you have a large chest and need to wear a bra, the strap may show in the back, and if you have a small chest, the bust will be a little loose and you will also need a bra.

I ordered the dress in a 2 and 4, neither of them fit. The top was way too big (I'm a D cup) and the dress was too long - I'm short so I expected it to be mid to low thigh and it was knee length, if not longer. The top didn't fit right, the belt was too loose around my waist, and the dress was too long. I think even if I ordered a 0 it would still have not fit right. I was very disappointed in my order (this was my first time renting; good thing I had a back-up dress for my event) and will probably not rent a dress again.

True to size except in the bust. The small fit my 5'7"/135lb/34B frame perfectly everywhere else, but I found I needed a low-back bra, cup inserts to fill out the top, and fashion tape to secure it so I wasn't flashing everyone at the dinner party. Overall, it has gorgeous fabric and the color is striking with blonde hair and blue eyes.

Got tons of compliments, but Hollywood tape is a MUST!!! I needed about 8 pieces to secure it comfortably. Once it's stuck on there though, it looks great.

Everybody loved the details of this dress, especially the back!!!!!
I absolutley loved this dress.. however the color is a lot different in real life. It is more of a greyish, cadet blue rather than the sage blue that appears in the picture. It fit very true to size. I did however have to wear fashion tape where the v-neck comes together, because it is very billowy! I would recommend ordering your size and the size smaller because the top part can be tricky to fit.

This dress is beautiful but not very adaptable. No amount of Hollywood tape could get this dress to fit my frame. I realized it was because my torso was too short - if it were my dress, I would have taken up the shoulders about an inch and it would have worked w/ Hollywood tape. Didn't have safety pins (which would have looked odd anyway), so I went with my back up dress. Also, I have a tiny rib cage, but on the size 2 and 4 the material where the clasp connected on the back flapped up making it look like it was too small on me, even though it wasn't very tight. Not a fan of that at all! Finally, the skirt has 2 layers that are sewn together at the bottom. When they arrived, both sizes were super static-y and the outer layer was sucked into the inner layer. Nothing I did fixed it, so yet another reason I went with the back up. As for the embroidery, it looked like a silver-y gold on my computer screen, but was definitely just silver which I didn't like as much.

I am about 5'2 & 112 lbs, I ordered a 0 and fit perfectly! The only complaint was that I think I have a pretty big chest for my size, about B/C, and I had to use fashion tape for the chest because it was a little large. Otherwise I got so many compliments-very comfortable!

The dress fit really nicely around the waist, but was a bit loose at the top.(which is strange for me b/c my waist is small) If I owned this dress, I would take it up at the shoulders slightly. The hollywood tape came in very handy! The design was beautiful, the fabric was silky (but wrinkled easily) and the color was gorgeous!

This dress was BEAUTIFUL! I wore it to a friends wedding and got a lot of compliments. Thanks to reading previous reviews I did get the Hollywood tape and the NuBra and they were a must! The top would not have fit nicely with out the tape. I hope to be able to rent the dress again!

This dress was gorgeous, and I got tons of compliments. The only thing to keep in mind is that is somewhat shorter than it looks on the model. It wasn't a problem for me, but for someone over 5'8" I wouldn't rent this dress. The back is gorgeous, and just sexy enough. You definitely have to wear s sticky bra with it, though. I paired it with black heels and it looked great!

I rented this dress for a wedding and I loved it. The dress was beautiful and very flattering to my hourglass shape. I am 5'5 and the dress fell about one inch or so above my knee. The material is beautiful, but does not have any stretch. I did however run into some problems with the neckline. I am a busty double d and because of that even fashion tape could not keep the billowy top in place to keep my ladies covered up. That became very apparent in the middle of Catholic wedding ceremony (with the constant up and down). I ended swithcing into my backup dress before we headed to the reception. While I love this dress the technical issues were to much to take. I do believe that on someone with a smaller chest this dress would be wonderful, but even then fashion tape is a MUST!

Wore this dress to a wedding a couple weeks ago and received TONS of complements on it! My only complaint is that you MUST wear stylist tape for the top, there are no if's, and's or but's about it. I also wore a NuBra which helped a lot (I highly recommend having one on hand at all times). Great color, great style, I loved the dress!

Listen to the girl about Hollywood tape. The dress is gorgeous but the bodice is so flowy that you'll need to secure it for small or large busts.

Love the length (perfect for shorter women). Love the color. The front of the dress makes it unwearable. It's loose and even tape wouldn't help, because you end up with a lot of air and dead space up top... and I have a pretty large chest.

The fact that there was doubt but then the dress totally pulled through made the night so wonderful!
This dress was wonderful. The color was beautiful (a greenish-blueish-grey) and it fit so well, gave me an excellent silhouette. I wore it to my school's homecoming dance and all of my friends loved it, I loved it, didn't mind the backless bra I got to wear with it, and I would definitely wear this dress again.

Beautiful dress - I loved wearing it and got several compliments. Good length for shorter people. As other reviewers said, Hollywood Tape and an extra set of hands is a must. The backless bra I wore helped "fill in the gaps," so to speak. The embroidered waist is pretty tight, but a size 4 would have been too big everywhere else. The pleats on the skirt part are forgiving. This was my first rental - everything was so easy, I'm sure it won't be my last!

Perfect!
Love love loved this dress!!!! It fell beautifully and looked gorgeous. Received LOTS of compliments. I have a narrow ribcage (32) but that area was still tight on me-- I got a size 2-- and the hook and eye BARELY connected. I think I pulled them loose actually..... otherwise, the dress looked and fit perfectly! I have a small chest but broad hips and the dress wasn't tight on them at all! Recommend for sure.

Lovely dress
I loved wearing this dress for my friend's wedding shower. I am a 34C with very petite shoulders, so using double-sided fashion tape was a must. I got compliments all night and was very comfortable, but I wish I would have taken more pictures of the back - it's so great. I am usually a size 2 and thankfully ordered (and wore) the zero.

Hi Anastasiya, this dress can only be worn with a sticky Nubra or fashion petals because of the open back.

This dress is amazing and I will absolutely be renting it again. It was so comfortable and flattering. You will defiantly need the fashion tape!! Bra is out of the question. 110% satisfied with my first RTR experience. Highly recommend to all those pondering the idea!! : )

Undergarments were a pain
This dress is cute, but between the fashion tape and the inability to wear a regular bra, it was more of a pain than I would have liked. I tried a tank and a bralet, but with the opening in the back I thought it looked tacky.
