L.O.V.E., love, luv!!!
I rented this dress for my friend's wedding and from the moment I opened the bag I knew it would be a hit! Got so many compliments and the picture really shows you how amazing this dress is. The print is so fun and different. Runs true to size, I rented a 0 and a 2 as backup and wore the 0 at first but changed into the 2 for the receptio. There is a slip sewn right into the dress and the bust was a lil tight, but still fit great.

I'm thinking about renting this for my friend's wedding but I am nervous that it would look too white- was it more grey because of the black batik pattern?

GREAT dress!
This dress is SO gorgeous in person! The color is not as white/cream as it looks, it's more of a khaki/taupe. It also has purple, coral, white, green and taupe stripes in it, so there's more color than there appears to be. For me, I usually wear a 0, and this fit perfectly but was a little bit large at the very top of the dress...the elastic may have been stretched out a bit, but it wasn't a major issue at all. The only real problem I had was the length. I am 5'6" and I wore 3"ish heels and it was barely long enough. If you're taller, you'll definitely have to wear flats. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Tons of compliments, and I was comfortable all evening!
I rented this dress for a rehearsal dinner and it was so perfect! Because I am normally a size 0 up top and a 2 down below, I rented both sizes (love the free backup size!). I ended up wearing the 2 because the 0's lining was just a smidge too tight around my hips, but I didn't notice a significant difference in the bodice fit between the 0 and the 2. I wore 3.5" espadrille wedges and the length was perfect (I'm 5'5"), but I wouldn't have worn heels any higher than that. Taller ladies should probably go with a flat sandal. You can see from my photo that the pattern is really pretty and photographs well. I was a bit concerned that the dress would be too close to white to wear to a wedding event, but it is definitely grey from afar, with very pretty coral/orange accents when viewed up close. Had I planned ahead, I would have gotten a grey or coral manicure to go with! Above all, this dress was COMFORTABLE! Not at all restricting, and I didn't feel like I had to pass up dinner or "suck it in" all evening. That being said, it didn't look sloppy or too casual for a semi-formal event. The structured bodice also helped me avoid tugging it up all night long (not a good look).

Something different
I rented this for a black tie North Carolina country club wedding. I adore the print which had dove grey, turquoise, and rose stripes running through it. It fit my small check very well. I only tugged at it out of habit, but the bodice is made and fits very well. One thing to note: the dress is very sheer. Nude underthings are must with this!

I am about your size, but I am going to be 4 months pregnant for the event i am ordering for. Does the skirt part of the dress have room for a small baby bump? Does the material have any stretch to it?
RTRMay 3, 2012
Hi Michelle, the dress has boning in the top through the waist so it may be a bit too snug for a baby bump. The material is silk and it does not have stretch in the top.

Everyone told me, "that dress is so you!"
Didn't realize that this dress only came in one length, so it was very long and I had to hem it, even though I was wearing heels at least five inches tall. However besides the length the dress was true to size and I received several compliments! The print is even more intricate in person and I loved it a lot!
SophyApril 14, 2013
I just ordered this dress and I'm trying to figure out what to wear accessory-wise. Would you say the pink stripe is more orange or more like rose/peach colored? I can't tell from any of the pictures!

No one else had my dress and it was a great way to save money on a dress that I am only every going to wear once.
The dress runs pretty short, I am 5'7 and i had to wear sandals and even then it was barely long enough. If your're taller than me this dress will probably be too short depending on the size. Other than that it fit perfect and i love the print. What you can't see in the picture is there is some teal and purple lining similar to the orange.

Elegant yet Casual
I wore this dress to my godson's baptism. I received tons of compliments on it. The dress was perfect - I could wear flats (safer on the church floor when holding a baby), it fit like a dream, and was the perfect balance between being elegant but at the same time not too dressy. The dress was really comfortable and easy to walk in - many times a maxi can limit your stride which drives me crazy.

My bridal shower was such a special day, and this dress was totally appropriate for the ladies only event on a sunny afternoon.
I wore this for my bridal shower and I couldn't have been happier. I got so many completments, I felt great, and I was extremely comfortable the entire afternoon. I'm 5'9" and this dress was the perfect length, even with really tall espadrilles on. I ordered and fit into both the 2 and the 4, but went with the smaller size so I wouldn't be playing with the top of the dress all day, as a result it stayed put and never slid down, rare for a strapless. I suggest ordering the smaller size as a back-up. I would order thsi dress again (wish I could own it actually!).

It was so easy, the dress got here 2 days before the event and shipping it back was a piece of cake! Hassle free
I wore this dress to my senior prom and I loved how different it was compared to everyone else's dresses. I wore flats and it was perfectly long enough, just grazing the floor so if you are taller than me (5'7") it's going to be too short, especially with heels. The colors are more visible than in the picture (coral, turquoise and a brownish color). The bust area fit perfectly on me so I didn't have to wear a bra and everything stayed put and was secure. Overall it was so cute and perfect for prom!

winner!
I'm 5'8" 130lbs and I ordered this in a 4 & 6...and I wore the 6. There's a lining underneath all the flowiness which was very snug on my hips when I tried on the 4. The construction is wonderful, very silky and comfy. It just barely touched the floor, so I wore a low-heel sandal and it was fine. This was the perfect dress for a summer wedding!

After visiting the showroom in NYC I decided to rent this dress for my bachelorette party, which was a wine tour of several vineyards. The dress fit perfectly and was really comfortable despite having to be outside in the sun for most of the day!

It was fun to wear a dress i normally wouldn't splurge on and just drop it in the mail the next day
overall i really enjoyed my experience with rent the runway. I rented this dress for my cousins wedding. The dress fit very well and was a cute style. Very distinctive dress that i wouldn't want to wear over and over again so rent the runway was a great option. My only complaint was that the bottom of the dress was a little stained. Looked like it had drug the ground on the previous renter and the dirt stain didnt come out. It wasn't horrible and i was still able to wear it but a little disappointing it wasn't perfect.

Wore this dress for my boyfriend's graduation. May have been a little overdressed but I didn't care! It looked great. If you have bigger hips be careful because the silk lining is tight compared to the outer layer.

Meh.
I wanted to love this dress, but it was just okay. I'm normally a size 8, but ordered a 10 based on reviews, since I have wider hips and didn't want the lining to be too tight - it was still a smidge tight, but the top was definitely large. I had to wear a bra to try to fill it out, and I felt like it added extra pounds to my waist with all the ruching. It was also a lot heavier than I would have liked - I felt a little "prom-y" at the summer wedding I attended, and it was a little warm in the Texas heat. Pretty dress, and I made it work, but I was more self-conscious than I would have liked to be. Probably better for someone with narrow hips and a larger bust.

Outdoor Wedding Maxi
Loved this dress, I got a lot of compliments. I wore it to a friend's outdoor wedding. I only got one size (4) and it fit fine, although I may have been able to wear a size 2 - particularly for length. I was able to pull of the maxi with 4-in heels though.

Loved, but didn't wear...
I loved this dress, it is gorgeous but it was a bit uncomfortable. I got this in two sizes and I'd say it fits true to size. The thing I found uncomfortable were the sides of the top. They have flexible hard pieces on the side to keep the dress up and in shape, and it kept poking me. All in all it was gorgeous but I chose not to go with it.

The dress arrived on time and fit perfectly.
The dress was beautiful and flowy. Although it could certainly be dressed up more, the event I attended required it to be dressed down with a simple belt and less flashy jewelry. The only con I thought the dress had was that after an entire evening of wearing it, the wiring inside the dress began to dig into my side a little. Many of my dresses have this, but they don't have that problem, so perhaps it was just that particular dress that needed to be adjusted. All in all, a gorgeous evening and a wonderful choice! Thanks RTR!

Stunning
I absolutely loved this dress! The detail in the bodice and the pattern is even more beautiful in person. I wore a size two and the fit was great. I'm 5'2" so had to wear some pretty high heels (about 5 in) so I wasn't tripping over the hem of the dress.

the dress is beautiful. the dress was intended to wear to prom but was a bit too informal.
the material makes the dress informal. it's a sheer silky material. it's also somewhat see through. but the bust has some great boning for support. and the dress is so comfortable ! i think this dress is more intended for a beach wedding than a formal occasion. but it's gorgeous. oh and super flattering !

Perfect Dress!
My first dress didn't work out very well so i decided to rent this one. i was nervous because if it didn't fit I would have nothing to wear. However, there was nothing to be concerned about because both the size 4 and size 2 fit me. I decided to wear the size 2 because it was a bit more snug and I didn't want to be pulling it up all night. The picture perfectly represents the dress. It was black and white with some light green, lights purple, and orange stripes throughout. My height was another concern for me but the dress was the perfect length.

gorgeous print dress that got tons of compliments
Overall, the dress was great. The print/pattern was very cool; it's mainly black and white but has a touch of color so you can totally play with them for make-up, nails, accessories, etc. I was worried about the length of the dress since I'm on the shorter side and it only comes in one length (as opposed to other long dresses that have P, R, and L lengths), but I wore 4-inch heels and the length was perfect. The one major down (and the reason for only 4 stars) was the fit of the top. Like a lot of other reviews have said, the top of the dress has some rather uncomfortable boning. It bothered me to the point that I ended up wearing the size up and had to do that awkward strapless-dress-tug all night to keep the dress up. The constant tugging also resulted in that weird pouch thing you can see in the picture I posted, but that was easily fixed by just pulling the dress down a bit, so the pouch only happened when I wasn't being conscious of my dress. But in general, I really liked the dress. I got so many compliments on it the night of my formal event and even for days afterwards (both from people seeing pictures of it on Facebook and also people remembering the dress from the actual night). I'd definitely recommend it!

I loved this dress so much I traveled in it, wore it to brunch in one city and to dinner in another.
It's long and flowy and truly beautiful. I am normally a size 4 and wore a 6 so that it would be roomy and the ribbing inside wouldn't drive me crazy. I am happy with my decision cause there was room for a bra (which was perfect when I wore it to dinner) but I could get a way without one which I loved when I traveled in the dress. I am 5'6 and 1/4 and the regular length was the perfect link for me with sandals. Amazing! Definitely plan to buy it.

Perfect for an outdoor wedding
I loved this dress but wish I would have been able to see the colors more clearly in the pictures so I could have accessorized a little better. You can't tell from the website but this dress has splashes of coral, turquoise, and lavender. So pretty! And surprisingly, it was a little big on top. Also, the boning from the corseting kept poking me in the side. Other than that, it was extremely comfortable.

teensy tiny lining!
I rented this dress as a back-up dress for a wedding I was going to, but didn't end up wearing it (I wore Tibi "Into the Blue Tribal Gown" instead). The print is absolutely gorgeous and very unique, and the bodice and chiffon overlay part of the dress fit perfectly and looked beautiful. However, there was absolutely NO way i could have worn it because the lining is SO much tighter than the outer shell of the dress! In both the 0 and the 2 (my usual sizes), I could barely get it over my hips and butt (granted, those areas take up a lot of mass on my 5'2'' frame, haha)! Probably not the best option for girls with a little bit more booty.

Hippie Chic and Comfortable
I wore this to a outdoor wedding in 90 degree heat, the dress was very comfortable, light and flowing. It seemed that the bust was a little big, not sure if my rental was stretched out, I’m a 34 D and usually don’t have any issue filling out the bust of a dress, but this one was a little big, not by much, but enough to keep me pulling it up every once and a while. I had to wear flats, which I planned to anyway, but if I wanted to wear heels it would not have worked well as the dress just hit the floor in bear feet on me. Over all the dress was fun and comfortable.

Great pattern, easy to wear!
I rented this dress for a daytime wedding. It was a great pattern that was subtle but had pretty details. I'm only 5'1 and thought some 4" wedges would do the trick. No dice! Great dress, but definitely best for taller ladies.

Unforgettable? I wanted this dress and couldn't have it bc it was damaged!
But, even though it was damaged, the lovely people at RTR found other dresses to get in the mail to me so that I would have something for the wedding! So, even though I think this was the cutest of the ones that I thought would be available... I ended up with another Cynthia Vincent winner.
