Gorgeous plum color

I Rented this for a New Year's eve wedding. I normally wear a 10 or 12 and I will typically size up in most of my rental dresses. I rented this in a 12 and a 14 anticipating that the lace could potentially be tight on the arms. I was pleasantly surprised that this dress runs small and the lace has a good bit of stretch and give to it, it actually ended up being too large and rent the runway was unable to overnight me a size 10 due to the holiday, but it worked out nonetheless the lace was just slightly too baggy. This dress was so comfortable and so beautiful, I will definitely rent it again for another event.

Comfy

I wore this for a gala. The dress was very comfortable. The area where it was knotted was a little bunchy. Overall very nice fit!

Ruching 2 piece

This dress is very flattering. It is comfortable and the lace is stiff but not itchy. The slip is separate from the lace, which is great because it is adjustable. I will rent this again. Purple is brighter than pictured. Very pretty

Didn't wear it but ...

This dress is beautiful excellent quality but I didn't wear it because the sleeves are too long ! I'm only 5'1 rented the size 14 and the sleeves were almost 1 inch too long for me. If not this dress would have been perfect.

Beautiful lace!

This dress was beautiful and super comfortable. It comes in two pieces - the slip and the overlay, which was a gold style for my large bust. My only complaint was that the sleeves were a tad big on me, but not a deal breaker at all! Received many compliments on this one!

Guest at wedding

It's 2 layers and the lace overlay made it a bit more conservative.

Beautiful, comfortable dress

This dress is really beautiful. It is TWO separate pieces, the slip underneath and the lace overlay. I accidentally wore the size 14 slip (my backup size) and the size 12 lace overlay, and I was pulling up the slip all night, whoops. And the slip does have adjustable straps, which I really appreciated! The overlay can be tricky-the first time I didn't put it on correctly and I did NOT like the dress. I tried it again a few hours later and did it correctly and was so, so happy. I wore to a late October wedding in Connecticut it and it was perfect for the occasion. I'm in between a 12 and 14 and the 12 was the idea size for me. The lace has nice stretch which I appreciated. Highly recommend!

Not flattering- loose sleeves, side rouching lumps up

I saw other reviewers photos and they look great, but my experience was not the same. I ordered the 6 and 8, but I was swimming in the 6. This dress is intended to be skin tight. Wearing it like a sheath looks terrible. SIZE DOWN! the arms are very wide/loose and if the fit isn't super tight, the side rouching adds weight to the look. It's a beautiful color and the lace is gorgeous, but the fit was just wrong

Beautiful dress and color! Perfect for a wedding

Loved this dress! The lace is a separate piece from the slip underneath. The lace is not too tight and I was able to move my arms freely and did not feel suffocated. Great dress!

Pretty dress, but a tad too large

I should have ordered a size smaller as this was too big around the bust. A pretty color -- although I'd have preferred it in black. Basically, it comes in two parts: a 'modesty' slip (with adjustable straps) and a lace sheath over-dress.

Lovely dress, not the right fit for me

I really liked this dress, but it showed more cleavage than reasonable as I was in the wedding. The lace is lovely and the color is very flattering, but no matter what bra I put on it felt like I was on display because of the dip in the middle of slip's neckline. I'd rent it again if I were going to an evening event or something where I didn't mind showing more skin. I'm just under 5'3 and the length hit perfectly just above the knee. The quality seemed great to me, and because of the overlay design messing around with corsets and slips won't be necessary. Pretty comfortable!

Beautiful, comfy dress! Would wear again. Dark plum color is amazing.

In my opinion it runs large. I first chose a 10 as that is a normal size for me and a backup 8 was not available so I chose a 6, really thinking there was no way I would ever fit into it. I ended up wearing the 6 and had plenty of room. Sleeves are a bit long if you are short armed. Slip is underneath and then lace overlay. I’m 5’4” and it hit me just above the knees.

Ran a Bit Big

I loved the color & how flexible the lace was - would have made it really easy to dance at the wedding. & loved that the slip was a separate piece. But I ordered my regular size 8 & it felt a bit loose overall. There was a lot of fabric bunching at my hip where the wrap skirt came around which just made it look a little frumpy on me. I ended up going with a different dress that was more sleek on me...& a size 10. so I think this just runs a little big.

Loved this dress but I couldn't make it work in either size.

I tried Rent the Runway for a formal event last year and I loved this dress; however, I couldn't make it work because I am a petite size and the torso length and sleeve length just looked odd. I wish the company carried dresses in true Petite sizes and not just including "petite" as a body type to filter regular sized dresses.

INCREDIBLY Flattering and fun dress!

I loved this dress and wore it to the wedding of a close friend. I loved that it was super flattering on my figure but was still conservative enough for me to be a reader and stand in front of the crowd at the Catholic wedding

This dress was perfect for the DC wedding I attended! Fit really well and got lots of compliments!

This dress fit perfectly! It flattered my figure well. Definitely good for a winter wedding since it was long-sleeved, but the lace makes it breathable and not too cumbersome. I tried it on in the store, so I already knew how it would fit when it arrived.

Loved it so much, I rented it twice!

This is the most flattering and comfortable cocktail dress I've ever worn, especially if you've had kids and have midsection issues. It's a gorgeous plum color - I got so many compliments!

Got so many compliments with this dress.

Loved the color and the details on the dress. Definitely renting again! I rented a 10 and 12 and could have worn either one but just went with the 10. I'm 5'4 and it was perfect length for me.

My friends who attended made the night special.

I am usually in between sizes 6 and 8. I went with the 8 because I do like like overly tight fitting clothing. The 8 fit perfectly in every way. The color and style were gorgeous! My picture is making the dress darker than it appears, but it is true to the color in the model picture. The length was also perfect. Not too short and not too long.

This gown was perfect for a Richmond, VA wedding and was the Bride's favorite color!

The Bride choose this beautiful deep purple for her Bridal party and folks thought I was in the wedding! It was very comfortable. I rented a size 6 but could have probably gone with a size 4. This was a very classy rental, and I highly recommend it.
