Beautiful color.
The color of the dress is beautiful and perfect for a daytime affair. The lace on the body of the dress is lined and the style is very sophisticated. The lace on the sleeves in unlined and with the high neckline, gives the overall look of the dress a very dowdy feel. The fit/shape of the rest of the dress is very nice - but I ended up not wearing it becuase of the look of the sleeves.

Didn't fit great so I'm not wearing it to my engagement party. I would wear it on a night out.
You need to be tall/ I thought it was big on top small on bottom Pretty color and true to picture.

Gorgeous fabric, slim fit
I rented this dress for a friend's wedding and was unable to wear it. It ran true to size, but the cut is really for someone who has a much straighter body type then I do. I looked like all hips in this one. So if you are in the slightest bit curvy, beware! The fabric was beautiful though and the color was vibrant. Wish I could have worn it.

This dress was amazing. It was comfortable, a bright bold color and very flattering. I loved the longer length so I didn't have to worry about pulling it down all the time. I would not hesitate to rent this again!

The dress was stunning!
It was actually my back up dress, and my original choice was too big. The fit was perfect and the cut was so flattering. It was very comfortable and the lining was nicer fabric than most dresses! I received a ton of compliments and the color was fabulous. I would say that it ran very true to size and that the fabric had a little bit of give in it. Overall great experience! I wish I could have kept it!

Very, very nice looking on you! What necklace did you wear with it? I've got this dress coming for an awards banquet in June. Thinking about accessories now.

9 of 10 strangers walking past couldn't resist complementing this dress
I've rented a few of these sheaths and they really are so, so much lovelier in person. The photos don't do it any justice. It's not so much a sexy dress as it is an unbelievable beautifully crafted work of elegant & stunning wearable art. The compliments were relentless all night long. So comfortable & incredibly camouflaging. Do yourself a favor if you are in need of feeling beyond sophisticated & wear this dress!!

Beautiful blues.....
Loved this dress. Fits like a glove. Didn't gap anywhere. The length hit me right at the top of the knee. There is some stretch to the fabric so I think it will fit almost anyone who is a true size 8. Loved how different I looked from a sea of black and white in the room.

Lovely and luminescent dress but very snug in the bust and hips!! Unfortunately the 10 was not available or I would have worn it. I am usually between 6-8 and this just wasn't going to work. I was busting out.

This was a wonderful dress and was very comfortable.
I wore the dress for a daytime wedding and it was perfect. The color is deeper and prettier than shows in the picture. The lace sleeves were very pretty.I was able to wear my size. It was a snug, but great fit, for an hourglass figure.There was stretch in the material so it was comfortable to sit in and wear all day. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this again. I felt wonderful in it!

I felt sexy and confident without showing too much. Great for all ages!
This dress is a fitted style with the luxury of comfort. This style ran pretty true to size. I would recommend sizing up for your backup, as the waist runs a bit snug. The sheer lace sleeves give it that extra little wow factor that will keep bringing the compliments all night long!

Hi Julie! This dress runs pretty true to size, but it does have a snug fit. I would recommend sizing up for your free backup.

Absolutely loved this dress, the fit and the color were beautiful! I got many compliments and told everyone about the rent the runway experience. I changed my dress on Wed and the new dress was delivered on Friday. The dress was a perfect fit. What a great idea for an fun event!

Beautiful lace and fit
I wore this to an evening party before a wedding. The lace on this was beautiful, but I didn't want to show up the bride by wearing so much lace on her wedding day. The dress fit my slight-but-not-pronounced curves perfectly! It was incredibly comfortable to wear, with a surprising amount of give (to squat and reach up high if necessary). I would definitely rent this kind of dress again.

Beautiful dress!
Great dress, I rented the 6 and 8 and both fit because the fabric has a little stretch to it. I wore the 6 because it was a little more 'sexy'. It was a great length for someone tall (I'm 5'10). Got many compliments!!

Professional! Beautiful colors
I wore this dress for my dental school white coat ceremony. I had earned a free rental and so decided to rent this dress for the occasion. The length may have been a tad on the long side compared to what I usually wear, but I still thought it was a great dress. Very appropriate for a professional event. Runs true to size and the color is beautiful!

Lovely Lace, great color
This is a beautiful blue and the lace is gorgeous. The length and neckline is very conservative so it would be good to wear to a business function. I got several compliments on it and one woman stopped dead in her tracks to comment. I wore the Oscar de la Renta Karenina Statement Necklace I had from Unlimited (see pic). But to be honest, this is not my favorite RTR dress. It runs VERY small, I would get the size that fits when you wear Kate Spade and even that was tight on me. The waist is pretty plain even though there is a seam there. I added a thin belt to accentuate the waist. The hem was not a clean line but rather bunched a little and other than that, it was just ordinary. I've rented several RTR dresses and this is the first I would not rent again...

So many compliments on the beauty of the dress. The lace overlay is really special as is the color!
Super comfortable, true to size. Was difficult to accessorize because of the unique color. I decided on black and the addition of a skinny black belt really helped define a waistline. I usually don't have one. Overall, loved the dress and the entire RTR experience!

Didn't wear bc of fit.
This dress doesn't really have any stretch so isn't recommended for anyone with a bigger bust relative to their typical dress size- as a 32DD I wasn't able to wear this (typically a 4 or 6) as it basically compressed my chest, which was really unflattering. Beautiful dress though- the color is even more vibrant than how it shows online- wish it fit.

Would the 8 have fit? I am renting this and it looks like we have similar builds. Thanks!
KFSApril 8, 2015
The 8 may fit, but on my body it would've probably been bigger on the rest of my body that I would like (or would be most flattering).

Vera Wang knows her stuff
My first VW rental, and it fit like a glove in the size 8. Beautiful color, perfect amount of stretch for dancing, and got plenty of compliments. My only reason for not giving it five stars is that the dress arrived with a slight snag in the lace - the hole wasn't noticeable unless you're looking for it (which I always end up doing with lace). Otherwise, a great rental!

I sized up for my free backup and am glad I did because the dress was tight. Beautiful, though, and what a lovely color.

Hi! Since you just rented this dress, I have a quick question for you. I still have a bit of a baby belly. Do you think this dress in a size up would hide some of my belly? Or would it just make a baby belly more obvious? Thank you so much for your help!
MariaJuly 11, 2015
I don't think this dress would be flattering to a belly. Also, now that I've seen official photos of my event, I'm less happy -- I looked really dowdy in this dress, so watch out for that.

Form-fitting yet classy! A lot of compliments!
I love this dress! I really should have worn a 2, but grabbed a 0 because it was available. Fit so well but slightly snug in the bust- didn't feel uncomfortable, but I know it visually looked tighter than I prefer.

I was so happy with how it fit - seemed custom made for me. The dress was a tad worn, but understandable with the lacy overlay, and its gorgeousness, which I'm sure makes it a popular rental.

Classy AND sexy!
It's not often you can find a dress that fits both bills. It was classy enough for a cocktail-attire fundraiser, but sexy enough that I felt awesome in it. I ordered a four and a six. I can typically wear a four if there's a little stretch, but there wasn't enough with this one. A five would have been great (I know...no such thing) so the six was perfect. I could eat dinner AND dessert without being uncomfortable ;) Great colors, especially for those of us with blue eyes - really set them off!

Stunningly gorgeous, classy dress
Loved this amazing dress! Wore it to a work gala. It fit like a glove & was tight in all the right places. Length was great - hit me right at mid-knee, so it was very conservative in cut, length, & style while adding subtle edginess with its form fitting aspect. The color was so rich & pretty - complements al night long. I can't wait to rent this dress again!

I normally can fit in a 10, but with the fitted style of this dress, the 12 looked more flattering. The dress arrived looking good. I was worried that the lace may look worn after other wearings, but it was perfect. I loved the length, it was great for my 5'11" build!

Absolutely perfect dress!
This dress was a replacement dress. It was absolutely perfect!! It was stretchy enough and long enough (tea length on me) that I was comfortable all night long. Sometimes form fitting dresses make me self conscious at some point in the night, but I didn't feel that way at all with this dress. I received so many compliments. The blues were bright and the material wasn't too thick so I was the perfect temperature all evening. I loved this dress.

This dress is gorgeous. The ONLY reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is the smell.
This dress is a beauty. The color, fit and overlay was perfect. For midi lovers this is a great piece. The only problem is the arm pits reeked of foul body odor. Perhaps there is a deeper dry cleaning process needed to get the strong smell out. As far as sizing. I could get in the 4 but the 6 was more comfortable.
