I got nothing but compliments when I wore this dress to my rehearsal dinner!
This dress fit true to size for me and, bonus, you can wear it with a normal bra.

Pretty dress with fun print
Not my favorite, but pretty! I wore it for my rehearsal dinner at my destination wedding in Florida. The back of the dress is super unique and a fun part of it.

Great pick!
I wore this dress for an end of summer wedding and I received a lot of compliments on it! The skirt is flowy which makes it perfect for the dance floor. The fit is true to size, I was worried as some of the reviews stated it was too tight in the rib cage but I didn't have that problem. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Perfect for wedding welcome dinner!
I got this dress for the welcome dinner for my wedding and it was perfect! The back detailing was beautiful and I love the short to long length. I received so many compliments and felt stunning! I'd recommend this to anyone. Sadly I somehow missed getting a picture with my iPhone. LOVED IT!

Super fun shape and color for my Bridal Shower.
The upper back area has a weird dark blue panel that was large and drooping. Other than that it was very comfortable and soft, got a ton of compliments.

I have never felt so beautiful! This was the loveliest dress for the loveliest day!
This dress is absolutely brilliant, and I am devastated I had to send it back! I even called RTR to see if there was any way I could purchase it out of the rental! The dress fit me like a dream, and I received loads of compliments! If I could give this dress 10 stars, I would!

Easy to wear, light and comfy!
I rented this dress for my rehearsal dinner and it was so unbelievable comfortable! I loved the dress and I felt great in it. I got so many compliments. I was worried that it would be too short on me since I'm only 5' but with some heels it was the perfect length! I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone in the future looking for a comfortable dress for a night out! Rent the runway comes through for me again! 😊

Tough around the waistline
I had rented the size 12 and it was to tight around the waistline. The backup I received was a 14W which fit much better. It was then too big around the waist and you could definitely tell in the front. It also showed in the back because of the way the design was put together. I wish I had received the 14R, if it was available. Other than that, I had a blast in this dress and received many compliments.

Stunning extremely flattering dress!
I wore this to a bridal shower I usually wear a size 2 or 4 but they were both unavailable for the weekend and most reviews said the top fits looser so I went for the 0 and it fit perfectly! It was a little snug after eating but overall still very flattering!

Great customer service and extremely comfortable dress!
This dress was perfect for a mid-summer outdoor wedding. I ended up going with the size 6 because it was a bit too snug around my waist in the 4. The customer service was fantastic on my order. I had received two emails: one saying my order was on its way to me, and another saying they had received my order back at RTR. When I called the woman was extremely helpful. They immediately sent out another dress with a free back up in case there was a glitch in shipping my first order. I ended up with four dresses, but great piece of mind knowing I would at least have something to wear! I would absolutely rent this dress again, and would definitely recommend it to others!

Great dancing dress!
Beautiful colors, perfect length for any height! The dress was tight in the rib cage because the material does not have any stretch so I needed to size up. But the material is soft and comfortable. Really loved wearing this dress!

Bridal Shower Dress
I typically wear a 4... where this dress hit on my ribs made it a little uncomfortable to go with the 4 so I went with the 6. The dress was beautiful. Photographs well. Everyone loved it ! Perfect for a summery wedding shower :)

Loved it!
LOVED this dress! I am almost 5'10 and I was a little worried that the front would be a little too short, but it hit maybe 2-3 inches about my knees, which was perfect. It made my waist look TINY! The top is definitely not forgiving (not stretchy material), but it fit me perfectly. I am a true size 8, sometimes even a 6 with some designers, so I would suggest that if you are between two sizes, definitely go for the size up.

Beautiful bright floral pattern!
I received so many compliments, this dress is truly one of a kind -stunning. The floral pattern is bright and beautiful. The shorter front and longer back is great for both shorter gals and taller. I am 5'5" and felt it was great for my height. I usually wear a size 2 and a back up size was not available. The dress does not have any stretch and was a little tight when seated in the rib cage. Other than that, it was a great rental!

Lots of compliments!
Very comfortable and can wear a normal bra. I prefer to have dresses that show my hourglass, so if I rented again I would find a belt with it. Other than that, it was super fun to dance in with its little twirl and it definitely sticks out (in a good way) with its bold pattern!

Beautiful Summer Bridal Shower Dress
This was my favorite dress I've rented from RTR. I felt beautiful, and the fit was perfect. The high-low style made it perfect for a bridal shower. The front was the perfect length to make it fun, but it covered me in the back. I loved wearing this, and was so sad to send it back. The material is light enough to wear in the summer, and has a liner. I would definitely rent this again.

This dress is one I would not normally wear, but I wish I owned it after this weekend!!
This dress was my back up as my first choice was not available. That being said I absolutely loved the fit and style of the dress. The fabric is lightweight and has a liner, it was perfect for an outdoor 80 degree ceremony in August. I normally wear a size 4 and this dress fit me perfectly. I loved the color and the hemline as I walked, it looked beautiful. I got numerous compliments throughout the night and wish I owned this dress.

Perfect for a San Francisco Wedding
I absolutely fell in love with this dress! I originally had requested a 2, but it was slightly tight in the waist seem area. The 4 was slightly loose in the top, but fit perfect otherwise. I also had this dress shipped to my home before leaving on my trip and since the size I had was tight, they shipped the size 4 to the hotel I was staying at. I arrived to the hotel and it was already there waiting for me!

Perfect for a Spring, Summer, or Southern inspired occassion!
I normally wear a 4 or 6 but had to wear the size 8 in this due to my "bigger" rib cage area. The zipper wouldn't close on the 4 and they were out of the 6. I ended up wearing the 8 because it zipped easily but then the upper body part of the dress was a little baggier on me than I would have liked. Regardless, the dress is gorgeous and I had numerous strangers complimenting me. I wore this to Churchill Downs in Kentucky.

Fab and fun
Loved this dress. As others said it is form fitting just at the natural waist (just below rib cage). So I ended up sizing up and was comfortable but form fitting. I didn't have any trouble with the zipper but can see if the dress is just fitting how that would be a two person job. I wore a racer back bra but I think a strapless would be best. I also found the top to run a little large as the lining seemed a little off kilter. Overall a fabulous dress that I would rent again!

Perfect fit!
I loved this dress! I am always nervous about ordering dresses without trying them on, because my waist is very narrow and my hips are very wide. The bride helped me pick this dress out though, and when I tried on the 4, it couldn't have zipped up more beautifully! There wasn't a ton of room in the bust but I felt very comfortable, and actually was able to wear the dress without a bra (super win in my book!). Someone who has an ample chest may feel a little constricted though. My husband loved the dress so much he said that I should buy it! Great experience all around (:

This dress was so fun! I loved how colorful and comfy it was!
I'm so glad I ordered a bigger size because this dress does run small. I am usually a size 0 in dresses but I think the waist and bust area were a little too small for me so the size 2 fit well. I am shorter than most so I was nervous about the length but it turned out really well with the heels that I decided on wearing. I think the pictures and reviews really did justice to this dress because it looked exactly like the picture! This dress was my first order and I definitely plan to order again!

I chose this dress because I wanted something white but something that would also stand out on camera. This dress delivered! It caught the wind beautifully and the blue poppies were so vivid! I wore a size 4 and it fit perfectly.

Stylist Review
So sad that this dress runs small, because it's beautiful online and in person. Definitely size up; works best for A to C cups and is tight in the waist. This dress is fitted in the hips, so curvier women should also size up. The dress is about mid thigh length in the front, and longer in the back as shown above. It should be worn with a strapless bra due to detail in the back of dress. Fabric does have some stretch, but overall I would size up.

This dress is stunning and I love how the front is little shorter than the back.
This dress is tight in the ribs but if you try to size up it's way to big. This dress was a hit all night. I wore it to a summer wedding and didn't feel like the white clashed with the bride at all. The dress length is great and the back is so different.

Bridal Shower
I wore this dress for my bridal shower and received SO many compliments!!! It fit true to size. I typically wear a 6/8 but saw some note that it ran small in the rib area. I am not that big in the bust, and probably could have ordered and worn a 6, but the 8 did the job! LOVED IT!!

It was a great dress for summer cocktails on the patio pre-wedding!
Size 10 was unavailable so I ordered the 8 and the 12. The 8 was too small and the 12 too large, but I wore the 12. It was loose in the chest but a good length and fine with the wise. Typically I wear a 36D for a bra if that helps people. I wore a halter style bra so the straps wouldn't peek through.

Rehearsal dinner
So pretty! I can't wait to have an excuse to rent this again! I wore it to my rehearsal dinner, just a fairly casual BBQ but I wanted to look nice. I loved it so much! I felt shapely, curvy, and hourglass-gorgeous! Everyone said I looked great, I got tons of compliments - and not just because I'm the bride! It does run small, I had rented up and I'm glad I did. I'm 5'0", 38DDD, normally wear a 12 or 14 but wore a 16 and felt great! It was still a little tight on the bust and showed my bra a bit on the sides but I don't think it was a huge deal. 5 stars, will rent again!

Beautiful dress - so many compliments!
I wore this dress to a friend's summer wedding and received SO many compliments! It was very comfortable and got very nicely. I rented sizes 0 & 2 and ended up wearing the 2 because, although I am fairly small chested, I had a hard time zipping the 0 up. My only qualm was the wedding was outdoors and the dress wants super breathable, but the length helped with that. Would definitely recommend!

Beautiful dress for a summer wedding!
Loved this dress!! The back is so different and really pretty. Received so many compliments! Ended up wearing nude heels. Love the little train on the back- there was only a size 0 left when I ordered, and I ended up being okay. Slightly more snug than I had wanted but still felt great!

This is a great dress but it was a bit small on the bust. I had to constantly adjust it to make sure my bra strap wasn't showing. I was very comfy though and loved it overall!

This dress was perfect for this beautiful barn wedding! Summery and chic!
When I got this dress, I ordered a size 6 and a size 4 as backup. I ended up wearing the 6, which is the size I wear the majority of the time. However, the top of the dress did not fit my chest and shoulders as well as I would have wanted. There was some extra room there. But the 4 was too snug on my waist so I had to go with the 6. This dress was very comfortable. The material was light, yet substantial. I got so many compliments on it! My partner and I had a slow dance together and we did some twirling and everyone kept telling me how great it looked! Definitely a dress for someone with a longer torso and a larger bust, but I still felt like I rocked it!

Beautiful dress, but no stretch
This dress is beautiful and very slimming, and it was lined, so I didn't feel a need to wear spanx. I am a 38D cup size and the 18 was tight in the bust. This dress has NO stretch. I would rent it again. It was perfect for a summer wedding. Please ignore the flip flops! My feet were killing me and I had to change out of my shoes.

Polo Match Perfect
I loved the print and the hi-low skirt. The top was very big so I had to pin the shoulders, my hair was down so you couldn't tell. Other than that it was very comfortable and I received many complaints.

A cheerful dress for a cheerful occasion!
I wore this dress for my son's 8th grade graduation. Both the floral pattern and the fit of the dress just made me feel happy, which is exactly how I wanted to feel on this occasion. I had been eyeing this dress for a while because I loved the pattern and was waiting for the right occasion to rent it, and this was definitely it.
