So amazing and flattering!!

Dress was amazing, flattering and perfect all around. I wore this to a Mardi Gras Ball and got sooo many compliments!! Only tip I have is, order up a size! It runs a tad tight around the ribs so I'm glad I had my back up size

Cinderella vibes

I would like to preface this with I am certainly NO SIZE 2; in fact I'm usually a size 4 (and that's if I want the item to be snug). I had ordered 3 dresses that were all too big and was granted this gem FOR FREE and it ARRIVED THE NEXT DAY BY 10 a.m. (shook). Anyways, about the dress; beautiful, simple, snd elegant. I dressed it up with pearls (military ball calls for class) and I felt like Cinderella next to my Prince Charming. The slip underneath is more fitted, allowing you to have shape with a rather flowwy dress. The back adds a youthful flair. Overall, great choice.

Beautiful formal dress

I loved this dress and got a lot of compliments! The little details, particularly the slit and the strappy back made it stand out. The bottom of the dress loops up in a way that made me trip a few times, and the straps rubbed my boulders in a way that I got light rug burn but these were my only minor complaints! This dress looks great and makes you feel great. It ran a little small so I would size up!

Beautiful dress!

This dress and color is a beautiful color and great fit. Because of the high neck line if worn with heels it would not need to be hemmed. There is a large slit in the front but it did not bother me as it was not revealing. It does run a little large so I could have probably used the 2 but overall it fit well.

This was my backup dress, so I didnt wear it for my event but I'm obsessed with the color and style and length! Everything was perfect about this dress so I will definitely be keeping it in mind for a future rental!

Simple and Classy

Very cute gown. Absolutely loved the color! Only negative for me was that I had major side boob. I would have been helpful if it had an adjustable strap for a little more lift. Also, by the end of the night the strap was rubbing in my skin.

Absolutely Gorgeous Gown!

I am a size 12, 5"9. The dress fit like a glove EXCEPT the back area was slightly too big. I got hundreds of compliments. I would suggest heels with it so the dress doesn't slide on the floor. You should definitely order this dress because it's elegant and comfortable.

Great Color, Fun Back

Built in bra was so nice with the fun back. Fit so well. Slit made it easy to dance but still very modest (didn't see it most of the time because of how flowy skirt is). Great cut and gorgeous color

Classic, comfortable gown!

I wore this dress to a formal ball and loved it. The built-I'm bra was great and the slit was just the right height so I didn't have to worry about it all night. I am 5'8 and ordered the long length, which worked with 4inch heels but I would have been more comfortable with the regular.

Simple and elegant

I wore this dress for my sorority formal and got tons of compliments! The dress fit like a dream, and made my waistline pop. The only reason I wont give it five stars is because it arrived missing a hook on the back so the straps were a bit loose. However, it was gorgeous and easy to dance in so it still exceeds expectations.

Runs small!

My girlfriend rented this dress for a formal birthday party. She's usually an 8, but ordered a 10R just to be safe (This was the free second style of our order and could not get a back-up size). The dress was so small it wouldn't even zip halfway! I decided to try it on to see how it would fit me. I usually wear a 6, and it fit me tight. Sizing is obviously an issue here. Size up one or two sizes and cross your fingers that it fits!

Amazing dress!

Loved the fit and color! The 8R was a tad too long for me but nothing that 5in heels couldn't fix. I loved the color and flowy-ness of the dress, and it fit in perfectly with the romantic setting of a vineyard. The back was incredible! Such a classy dress! Received compliments all night long!

Beautiful Dress

I wore this to my sorority's formal and it was perfect! It photographed beautifully and I felt super confident in it! Also was very true to size, maybe a little small since I'm typically a bigger four but this fit me like a glove with a little room for dancing. My only complaint, and the reason I can't give 5 stars, is that the straps on top dig in after about an hour of wear but there isn't much you can do to fix that.

I really liked how it was really simple and elegant!

It was a really nice and comfortable dress for prom! It was hot out and having a nice flowing skirt helped with the heat. The only con I have is that the straps could be a bit tight at the shoulders :(

Beautiful flowing dress that is forgiving in the belly

I usually wear a size 4 but the 4R top was too loose and the regular was too long. The 2P was a little tight to zip up with boobs but fit great without a bra and was the perfect length for flats or wedges. The top was fitted but not too tight around the belly so I could let it hang after dinner. The dress was beautiful and received a lot of compliments! The straps did get a little uncomfortable by 2am but overall great dress.

Great dress

Overall, I was very happy with this dress! It photographs really well, I received compliments all night, and it was perfect for a formal military ball. Some specifics on the fit - I wore the 4L but probably would’ve been more comfortable with a 6R. The length was ok with 2 inch heels, but the neck was way too tight. It really irritated my neck/ collarbones. My backup size was a 6L that was too long so I think 6R would’ve been perfect! Also the slit is higher than I expected and can be revealing when sitting if you don’t look out. Great dress!

The flow and slit is great

Loved the flow, color, and slit in this dress. I think this dress does run small as I usually wear a 12R. The bottom fit great because it was flowly but from the hip up was tight. I also didn't like how the back of the dress clasped and squeezed. Size up if you are chesty.

Definitely considering for the future!

Didn't end up wearing this dress because I was choosing between 4 options for a formal, but I would definitely consider it again in the future! The fabric was really light and flowy and I loved the strappy back. I had to rent a 10 even though I'm usually a size 8 due to availability, but it fit pretty well, only a little bit big on me, so I would say it runs small- if you're between sizes you should definitely size up. The long was a perfect length wearing 3.5-4 inch heels.

I wore this dress for my sorority senior formal!

I normally wear a size 2 in most clothes, depending on the store or brand. Designer gowns (I'm guessing) run more snug because they are for made for models. I would recommend going up a size for your backup size because I ended up wearing my backup size (4R) and it was still a little snug around the stomach area. For reference, I'm 5'4 and 120 pounds with a C cup. The regular length hit just right so I didn't have to wear heels. Beautiful dress and wonderful color!

I loved the dress and the color of the dress was perfect! It was a perfect dress for my formal!

I loved the way the dress looked on me and loved the color of it. The waist was a little tight, but I am also short and they do not have petites in the larger sizes, so I just tucked up the waist and it worked great! i was able to breathe and it made the dress a little shorter so I wasn't tripping over the bottom.

A (nearly) perfect dress!

This dress was absolutely gorgeous, and above all else, the color was amazing. The back was interesting and just enough to make the dress unique and stand out, in the best way possible. The straps did dig in a little (as previous reviews stated), but nothing major whatsoever. My biggest problem with the dress was there was a polyester (maybe?) lining that was quite tight around the hips for me personally. However, with the slit it didn't impede sitting down, and was only slightly uncomfortable. Overall though, it was my perfect dress and I loved wearing it!

Was unable to wear it due to length.

This dress fit beautifully, but I gave it three stars because it was way too long! I was unable to wear it because it just dragged on the floor even after pairing it with high heels. The website says the short version is recommended if you are 5'2" and under, but I am 5'3", ordered regular, and needed the short size. I would definitely recommend getting the short version of this dress if you think you might need it!

The perfect amount of sassy and classy for a charity gala!

My chest and hips are VERY different sizes. Typically, I can wear a size 6 for my torso, but my hips will need a size 10-12 to fit comfortably. So trying to fit in an 8L was a bit tight for my hips, but a good fit for my torso. The tight fit around my hips made the slit on the left side run a little tight and bunch up. I’m 5’8”, and the 8L barely dusted the floor in my 3in heels. I also hardly have any of a chest, and the bra pads in this dress were a little high for me. An adhesive bra did the trick though! I definitely recommend this dress!

beautiful flowy dress

this dress was so pretty, and was perfect for beach pictures. i am about 5' 4" and i would say if you are my height or shorter definitely get a petite. if you are a little heavier up top you should be fine because i am not and i had a little extra room (not too much). overall, this dress was everything i wanted it to be.

Built-in bra!

I ordered this as a last minute replacement when my first dress didn't fit. It was very long- I'm 5'9 and wore 3 inch heels and it was skimming the floor. The best part about this dress was the built in bra - it was comfortable and flattering. Overall, I thought the dress was fine, but I wasn't in love with it. The straps dug into my shoulders after a couple hours which was uncomfortable. Also, the hanging loop things inside the dress were itchy and very uncomfortable all night long. It was tight around my rib cage. The slit is higher than I'm used to and looked pretty while walking, but was a little dangerous when sitting down and getting up! It felt bridesmaidsy.

I got so many compliments on this dress! The color was beautiful and it flowed so elegantly.

I liked the built in bra. Saved me time and effort. I did still have to tape my boobs up slightly because the bra was a little too big but that has more to do with me than the dress!

Did not wear.

The fit was perfect, except for the length. I loved the color and the fit, and I really wanted to be able to wear this dress, but it was for an event where the flooring could be damp and slippery, ruling out high heels, and the dress pooled on the floor about 3 1/2 inches. I thought of using hem tape or fashion tape to adjust the hem,, but the gauzy chiffon outer layer ruled that out. I have noticed many rentals not being used because they were too long, and only a few not being used because they were too short. Rent the Runway should consider adjusting its standard length or offering more petite lengths. Note that you can wear this dress without a bra because that area has fitted padding.

Wore this to a late winter/early spring wedding.

Perfect for this type of wedding. A bit tight at the top. Love the slit as it was understated. Great for dancing. Love the high neckline; built in bra and strappy back. The color shown is true to the real dress. I am 5'3" and the 4R was long on me even with heels- I'd recommend the petite size for anyone shorter than a 5'4"! Not my favorite ever dress, but definitely worth the "I feel pretty" feeling.

I wore this to a formal commencement ball and it was a hit!

The dress fit perfectly. I am normally a 00 (34B , 5'2" and 105 lbs), so the fact that this dress offered a 0P was great. It was the perfect length with heels, super flowy thanks to the split, and fit perfectly around my chest when the straps were hooked. Would definitely rent again for a Springtime formal event.

Beautiful dress. Beautiful color.

I loved this dress. it was beautiful and flowy. The only thing that I didn't like is that as you can see that if it gets wet it left water stains. Also, it was very long. I was 5'5 and wore 4 inch heels and it was still too long. Also, when I received it in the mail the clasp in the back was broken so I had to someone manually sew it the day of the wedding.
