Flattering fit! Received compliments all night.

I was so glad I ordered a size smaller than my regular size as back up. I am 5', 115 lbs and usually wear a 4, but I wore the 2 in this dress. Such a cute pattern and fit - loved the hi-lo aspect! Would absolutely recommend!

It was a bright and vibrant dress, that was outstanding when stepping into a room.

Fits true to size. Excellent to wear if you have fuller hips.

I wish this would have fit! It is beautiful!!

I ordered this dress for Easter weekend but was unable to wear both sizes I ordered because the dress ran so small. I would recommend going up 2 sizes. The dress however was beautiful and I wish it would have worked!!

The color of the flowers on the dress is gorgeous!

I wore this dress for Easter Sunday church and brunch. The color is stunning and I love the hi-lo hem. However, I feel this dress runs small so I would recommend to size up one (or two!) sizes. I typically wear a 16 in dresses but could not even zip up the 16W. I wore the 18W and it was still snug. There is no give in the waist so I wore extreme undergarments to hold me in. I loved the unique racerback in the navy. If I were to rent this dress again, I would probably rent an even bigger size.

Runs a bit small, but very cute!

I normally wear a 6/8 and this was a 10. It fit and was so cute, though!

Definitely stood out!

I wore this to a gala honoring my father-in-law. It's a beautiful dress and hid my biggest flaw (my belly) well. It is a fabric with not much give, so I found that I had to go up a size to be comfortable. However the back ended up being a bit loose as a result. Overall, I was really happy with how I looked .

Received many compliments.

This dress is perfect for a spring or summer event. I was going to a day event on vacation in California. I received so many compliments. It's a little bit longer than I expected. I am shy of 5'3". Also it would look nicer if it was more cinched in the waist. It was roomy in the waist and hip area so it doesn't give as slimming look as one may like. Also put your makeup on after you have the dress on because it will otherwise get on the dress. Loved the dress overall!

This dress was stunning. I got so many compliments and it was very flattering!

Loved the dress, but it was very small at the waist. I had to go up a size. This ended up making the bust and arms a little big, but overall I enjoyed it.

Loved the dress! Just had a baby so I wanted something flattering and this dress was it!

A little short in the front but glad it got longer in the back or I wouldn't have felt comfortable

This was such a beautiful dress that I received so many compliments on! It was flowy and comfortable

This dress is truly versatile. It could be worn to an outdoor wedding (what I attended) or a more formal indoor affair and fit right in. I have a larger bust line as well as larger hips that fit perfectly into this dress. It truly fits to size. It was comfortable for all day wear. I wish I could buy it!

Love getting the package from the UPS guy!

I rented the 2 which fit around the waist not the bust. The 4 and 6 were unavailable so I rented the 8. From some of the other reviews it "ran small so size up". I don't necessarily find that to be true. It was a great dress. Wrinkles easy though. Comfy. All in all it was an OK rental.

Liked it so much I will buy it.

Roomy in the hip and super small fitted waist. I usually wear a 4 and the 4 was snug just like I wanted it to be. If the hip is roomy I don't want it roomy at all in the waist. No stretch at waist bus fair bit of stretch in navy panel at bust line. Loved this dress. Will probably buy it I liked it so much.

Wore it to my in laws 50th wedding anniversary party.

It fit beautifully! I wore a size 4. I am 5'6" and unfortunately at 145 lbs. Since I carry my weight in my butt and legs, the fit and flare was perfect for me. I have a long torso so the dress was a little shorter than I would have liked in the front but it was still appropriate because of the length in the back and the demure fit of the top.

This amazing dress although it ran small!

Sorry it's not the best picture, but it is the best one I have in the dress! I loved it and wish I could've kept it! Will definitely use RTR again. I usually wear a 14-16, but I wore the 18 in the dress!

It was okay

The fit was made for someone taller, (I know I'm super short), but even so the torso did not fit great. The fabric is just alright. Kind of disappointing over.

Back was very weird

I fell in love with this dress because of the back. When I put the dress on it gaps where the navy scallops are down the back. I am only 5'4 maybe it I was taller that would T of happened.

perfect derby party dress!

reviews said it ran small, but I usually wear a 0 and the 0 fit perfectly! I'm only 5'3'' so the back came down a little longer on me than I would've liked, but overall it's a beautiful dress and I loved wearing it.

THE PERFECT DRESS!

I got compliments all night on this dress. I wore to a Kentucky Derby Party I hosted. My friends were saying I was "best dressed" and people kept asking me where I got it on social media. It was comfortable to be in all night! The colors just pop and it's for the sure the perfect dress to stand out in a crowd! Thanks RTR for another amazing rental experience!

Perfect for a bridal shower!

Wore this for my bridal shower, it fit perfectly! So girly and pretty! The zipper was a two person job because it was awkward, but other than that, no complaints! I didn't want to take it off.

It was a beautiful dress! Loved the way it fell on me. In the pic it was windy.

I think I could have used a 4. It was a bit loose on top. Overall I loved it. Beautiful in person. Perfect for a graduation by the beach. Nothing I didn't love about it. Even though it ran a tad big I was comfy. Definitely need a t-back bra.

Great dress, very comfortable for an early summer wedding

I agree with other reviewers that this dress runs a bit small, as I usually wear a 6 (occasionally a 4, depending on designer) but ordered the 8 because the 6 was unavailable and saw reviews noting that it seemed small to others. I am glad I did because the 8 fit perfectly. I would not have wanted it to be any shorter in the front or I would have felt like I was showing too much leg above the knee - loved the mid calf length in the back. The colors are beautiful. I paired it with an elbow sleeve bolero and it looked very cute. It was such a busy day that I failed to get a photo, though.

I have small lady bits so the top fit a little loose but a little shoulder roll back and it looked perfect.

Rhapsody In Blue

Loved the high-low skirt of this dress! I received many compliments the entire night. The flowers were a vivid blue and added to the elegance of the entire dress. The bodice fit, and even with my large (38D) chest, there was still some odd room in the bust area, however not noticeable in photos.

Both sizes fit poorly

I loved the shape and pattern of this dress but unfortunately the 10 was too small and the 12 was too big so I didn't wear it. The fabric in the back also bunched strangely so even in the 12 it looked like it was too tight when in fact there was a lot of extra fabric.

Ordered this for my graduation and absolutely loved it! Everyone told me I should have bought it! Great material-light and very flattering. Loved the hi-low hem. Received many compliments. As a side note, this was my first rent the runway experience and it couldn't have been better! Super easy and professional!.

Standout dress

So many compliments! It is such a unique cut that it is sure to standout while still being conservative and super flattering. It fits true to size. I have a straight (not hourglass) torso and it was a bit tight near the ribs - but still comfortable. I would definitely wear it again if I didn't already take so many pictures ;)

Great dress for a polo match!

This dress is soooo pretty - I'm sad to have to return it! I wore this to the NYC Polo Classic, an event where you can show off the perfect look. It's very comfortable, flattering and the silhouette is just gorgeous. I got many compliments! The only minor issue I had was that there were some tiny splotches and imperfections but I would assume it's just due to the dress being white and a good number of people rented it. Barely noticeable though and still very happy that I chose this dress!

Too bad

I ordered two sizes of this dress. I just had a baby 10 weeks ago. The day before the dresses were suppose to come, rent the runway emailed me and told me that the 12 was not available. I was not happy. The 14 was too big. I was really looking forward to wearing this dress as I ordered almost two months before the event. Poor customer service.

Obsessed with this dress!

I love love love this dress and got compliments all night. It was such a statement without being too much. The unique back and high Lo hem made it stunning and the fit made me look so slender - no food belly for me! I probably could have used a size 2 (when I'm usually a 4) but it wasn't available and the 4 was fine, just a little loose in the chest. I would definitely give two thumbs up to anyone considering this look. Cheers!
