Beautiful color, fantastic lace, perfect for any event in the spring.
The fit is on the smaller end. Im typically a 4 but was an 8 in this dress. It is a beautiful dress, however, not slimming for someone with a large chest. The effect is similar to a mad men era with the full shirt and the preformed cups in the bustier. I got so many compliments throughout the wedding shower and the color is perfect for anyone with blue eyes.

Very 50s
I fell in love with this dress and tried it as part of my unlimited service, not knowing if the back cut out would work on me since I have some chub back there. It fit but the back was less than flattering and the wide, true 50s style skirt was not flattering on my frame. That said, it was absolutely gorgeous and I would recommend you try it if you are on the taller side. Fit was TTS.

Size down
I was so excited to receive this dress! Unfortunately, it was just too large. I'm 5ft and curvy (106lbs), and the 0 was just too big. The dress looks gorgeous though, and the fabric is amazing (much heavier than I was expecting!). I was super bummed :(

Lace, flow, and fun!
I'm usually a size 4, but I do have a small waist, so when when I saw this dress snugs to the waist and accents around it i chose to try the size 2 and it fit perfectly! I got so many compliments and was so comfortable for a beautiful May wedding. I would wear it again in a heart beat!

Great dress for spring wedding!
Dress was ideal for recent spring wedding I attended. Dress ran a bit tight so I went with a size up. Color is very unique and the open back is beautiful-I received a lot of complements! Skirt is fuller than pictured with lots of tulle but was nice for the occasion-would rent again!

Great color, but skirt is VERY full!
The skirt on this dress was a lot fuller in person than I was expecting, I wore a size 2 and felt like it made me look a lot bigger than I really am. The back is fun with the cutout, but the overall fit was not what I wanted unfortunately. It was also a bit itchy with the lace fabric. Great color though!

This dress fits so well! And I got a lot of compliments on this dress!
I wore this dress to a wedding and received a lot of compliments. I have a bigger booty and I ordered the 10 thinking I would wear that one. Glad I ordered the 8 it fit me tighter at the top and I felt more secure in the top with the 8. I don't have the biggest boobs so the 8 really supported me since I did not wear a bra. I highly recommend this dress to anyone!

Comfortable and fun! Beautiful color!
I have a pretty standard hourglass figure and usually wear a 12 or 14 depending on the dress. The 12 was perfect and the full skirt allowed for some wiggle room ; ) The skirt is a little fuller than depicted on the model. It's not over the top, though. Overall, this dress was very comfortable and flattering!

Dear Caitlin! You and I have almost identical body shapes, and seeing this dress on you in your review absolutely sold it for me. I felt really pretty the night I wore it, and I hope you did too!

Full skirt with 2 tulle layers not as pictured
The 2 was a little tight in the waist, but the 4 was too loose on top. This dress has 2 layers of tulle fabric between the lining and lace layer that really accentuate your hips. It has a very full skirt--not at all like it looks on the model. The dress has a built-in bra with no underwire but is as supportive as the stick-on bra I was planning to wear. I ended up wearing my back-up rental instead of this dress.

This dress is definitely an eye catcher. It fits very true to size. The skirt does have a bit of extra tulle so it is a full skirt. About halfway through the wedding I realized that the dress has pockets! Super cute!!!

Beautiful, unique dress
This dress is gorgeous and unique-- loved the pockets! I wouldn't recommend wearing for a summer outdoor event because the lace is a tad itchy in the heat. All in all, I loved the silhouette; it felt like a 1950s movie!

Took a gamble on this dress and lost! Cost me a trip to the mall for a different dress.
The quality of the dress was very nice, but the fabric was somewhat stiff. I found the dress to run really small in the waist. My slimmest area is my waist/stomach and I typically don't have any trouble fitting into a 4 or 6 sized dress, especially if it is loose in the hit. The 6 nearly fit, but would have been very uncomfortable to wear due to how snug it was around the waist area. Also, I didn't find the cut to be very slenderizing. The skirt is more full than it appears in the photos. The back was really beautiful, but in the end I had to make a last second trip to the mall to buy something on the day of the wedding. Another reviewer described the dress as something you would see on Mad Men, and I think that is a great description.

Looked great!
I'm a size six in dresses, but I wear exclusively fit and flair dresses due to my height. In pants I'm a size 10. This dress worked well both for a pear-shaped body and for exceptional height. It came to just above my knees and fit well through the top/shoulders.

Great color, pockets, and an amazing skirt!
This dress was really beautiful and very comfortable. I got so many compliments and it was perfect for the June wedding I attended. Contrary to some of the other reviews, I didn't find the lace to be itchy at all and the skirt, while full, wasn't super puffy. The bodice of the 8 (my usual size) fit really nicely up top, but I went up a size because I thought the waist in the 8 was a little tight and wasn't flattering where the back was cut out. I would recommend going up a size for your backup if you are self conscious about this like I am. The 10 worked out great and I felt fabulous in it! I didn't wear a bra (you really can't with the back the way it is), but still felt comfortable and supported by the molded cups while dancing up a storm. I would definitely recommend this dress to for any body type!

beautiful dress, but tight around the waist
I was going to wear this to a dinner, but changed my mind last minute because the waist has no give. I am usually between a 2 and a 4 and went with the 4 this time. the dress certainly fits and looks beautiful and luxurious, but i just know when i start eating and drinking it will be uncomfortable. i would wear this to an art gallery or some other event that isn't centered around food. i would recommend this for someone with a small waist. the chest fit me perfectly without a bra and the hem hit a bit above my knee. overall beautiful dress and if i were to size up, the top would not fit right so it just wasn't comfortable enough for dinner.

LOVE the dress.I've never received more compliments on a dress. Felt pretty and a blast to dance in!
I love this dress. The quality and elegance of it were better than I could have imagined when I opened the bag. It was stunning. I received SO many compliments. it was fun to dance it, with the lace spinning up and out, while still remaining modest. I've never felt so elegant and beautiful. In hindsight, since I'm curvier and have a fuller bust, I'm not as comfortable with the open back, but I didn't let that detract. I think the biggest downsides for me, where that back, and the fact that I have such a large bust, that it made my torso/waist look shorter/far closer to my chest than it normally does. I chose to wear a strapless bra that fit under the lace, and was bummed that I couldn't remove the pads from the interior, as it took some adjustment not to make my breasts look oddly shaped, since the pads weren't big enough. Regardless of that, it's beautiful and stunning to wear! The back is a bit tricky if you don't have anyone on hand to zip you up, but doable. Overall, great and I wish I could have kept it!

This dress was special without being too fussy for a casual-ish backyard wedding.
The waist was the limiting factor in this one for me - the size 4 fit better on top, the 4 and 6 were similar on the bottom, but the waist made the 4 look a little unseemly in the back so I ultimately went with the 6. Loved the color and the length (came just to the knee on my 5'3" frame). Also really liked the built in cups - I didn't have to worry about stickies or finding a bra that would work with the open back. And the pockets!

The wedding photographer kept asking if she could take pictures of the dress!
I wore the size 14. I was uncomfortable with the cut out on the back and I had issues with my bra showing in the back. I wear a 38D cup so I had to wear a bra--ended up using a regular bra and tucking the straps. Not a great picture because it doesn't show the whole dress. The skirt was way fuller than I thought it would be so my hips looked even bigger than they are so I didn't take any pictures of my whole body. I still wore the dress and got compliments but I wasn't 100% comfortable.

Gorgeous, eye-catching dress
This is a super-pretty dress and I got tons of compliments. My boyfriend loved the fuller skirt and thought it looked pretty and feminine. The cut out is also dramatic and nice. The only con of the dress is that the sleeves are a bit itchy because they're not lined as the rest of the dress is. Overall, it didn't bother me very much, but I think if it were hot out it would drive me nuts!

Very pretty and comfortable
I got the 2 and 4, but the waistband of the 4 was a little more comfortable. I'm usually a 0 or 2 on top, so I would size up for back up. As some other reviewers mentioned, the skirt is very poufy and full, so consider that f you don't usually like something so feminine. I was pleasantly surprised to find the sewn in cups in the bust. I am a 32c and I felt like it was supportive and flattering. Many complements at the wedding. Fun to dance in. Very comfortable.

This dress made me feel both adorable and beautiful at my boyfriend's sister's wedding.
This dress was perfect for my boyfriend's sister's wedding in Lake Tahoe, NV. The dress showed off my curves, but was also family appropriate and kept me at the perfect temperature for the outdoor event (Lake Tahoe is hot during the day and cold at night). This was my first rent the runway dress and I don't think I could have picked a better one. I usually wear a size 10, but wore the 12 to the wedding since it was more comfortable. I would recommend sizing up if you don't have much of a waist.

This was a fun dress in a bright happy color. The skirt is full and fun, I'm tall and the dress went to my knee. I did love the pockets, and I thought the back was super cute and flirty.

Cute, but a bit puffy
I wore this dress to a summer wedding with an outdoor reception. It was very cute, but the skirt was really puffy. I usually wear a 10, but felt better in a 12 because it was a bit tight around the waist and ribs. Because I wore the larger size, it was maybe even puffier and a little loose in the bust. But overall, it was really cute.

Not a flattering fit for me, but beautiful color
RTR didn't have my original dress order in both of my requested sizes, so sent me this dress as a backup. color was beautiful but skirt was extremely full, which was not flattering on my hips. Dress is very 50s looking, but not quite the style I was going for.

Perfect for a fall wedding
For a short girl like me, it was a little bit longer than I'm used to, but otherwise this dress was really well-made and comfortable. I loved that it had pockets but be aware that you can't wear a regular bra because it is essentially backless. I got a MASSIVE amount of compliments on this dress.

A little tight in the waist for me (but I've got a pretty straight waist). A classic look, surprisingly comfortable, and bearable in southern July humidity ( A HUGE PLUS ). I received endless compliments and the color is a beautiful Tiffany blue. I would definitely rent again.

So pretty!
I LOVE THIS DRESS!! This dress came to me as a backup when the second size of the dress I originally chose was unavailable. I didn't end up wearing it because it wasn't right for the night wedding I was going to, but it was so cute and comfortable! LOVE the full skirt, and the interesting open back detail. Will DEFINITELY rent this again!
