This dress is beautiful on the hanger and off.
I would first like to warn that this dress isn't as jet black as it appears in the photo, more bluish black. And the way that the wiring is makes the hips appear to be a little larger, would not recommend for a pear shaped body.

Feeling fancy and fabulous!
Wore this to a black tie wedding. It was even more beautiful in person than in the picture. Very flattering. The dress did run a bit big on top, and I could have easily fit into the next size smaller-- but it didn't fall down as I danced the night away so... success!

Didn't fit right, didn't wear
I am generally between a 10 and 12 -- 10 on top and 12 on the bottom, but I own a Badgely Mishka in a 10 and it fits me fine so I rented this as an alternative dress. The problem for me was the boning in the top -- maybe because I have smaller breasts, but the boning made me look like I had 1950s pointy boobs and it just didn't work right. It's a lovely dress but just didn't look good on me.

It fit a little larger on the top than I expected. It was also a little long. Overall, great dress.

Very pretty color and drapes nicely.
I usually wear a 4 or 6 and based on other reviews I wore the 6 in this dress because the boning (sp?) on this dress makes it run a little small. I was sitting at a formal dinner and it did get a little uncomfortable. Not uncomfortable enough that I wouldn't wear it again. I got a ton of compliments on this dress!

A beautiful gown that made a spectacular evening perfect!
The dress is actually much "prettier" in person. The color is a rich slate gray,almost blue. I am definitely a curvy girl , a 36DDD, and this is the only strapless dress I have ever worn that manged to "stay put" for an entire evening. It is very tight through the bust, but I did not need to wear a bra and the "stays" helped keep it in place. The lingerie straps were a bit of a nuisance and there was a stay/rib that kept poking me under the arm, but not enough discomfort to deter form the overall comfort. I received more compliments than I can count.I wore it with my own "bubble" necklace and a big gold cuff bracelet. I am 5"9" and the 12L was perfect with 4" heels. I did lightly steam it, the crepe fabric was a bit wrinkled upon arrival, but I am super picky about those details. I recommend this dress highly and I look forward to renting it again.

Beautiful
I was skeptical of the tapering on this dress in person, because I've seen some knock-off Adrianna Papell dresses in person and they look like Cinderella AFTER her wicked stepsisters tore all the fabric off her dress. However, this dress is GORGEOUS. I am so sad that it would not fit me. The top is structured and unforgiving, so if you have a chest, order up. In terms of height, I am 5' flat and this would have been perfect with 2" heels.

I absolutely LOVED this dress! I wore it to my prom, and I got so many complements!! Its just the right length, and easy to dance in. The only thing is that it is a little darker/ a little more blue than in the picture. but the dress is still gorgeous!

It's a lovely dress and comfy. I would even say it runs a smidge large, so if you are picking a second size you might want to go for a smaller one.

Sooo many comments on how gorgeous my dress was
I loved this dress! I wore it to my cousin's wedding and had sooo many compliments. The picture does not do it justice whatsoever, I ordered it as my 3rd choice because the other ones I wanted were not available for the date. I am SOOO HAPPY I ended up with this one. It is NOT GRAY, it is NAVY BLUE. Regardless I wore it with Black pumps and looked gorgeous. Can't wait to use RTR again :)

Wearing it to my friends' wedding truly made me feel glamorous, confident, and regal all day!
I have a 34D bust and wore a size 6L, since I planned to wear a pair of shoes that had 4" heels. I attended an evening wedding at a winery. In short, I received many compliments about my figure because of it. The dress was extremely flattering, especially for the entire torso, but specifically at the waist and bust. If you have a little bit of belly, that's okay, it will make this dress even more flattering (if that makes sense to you :) because to me it does). You would not need to wear a bra or have nipple covers. Your bust will be supported by the dress itself, since there's a bit of built-in structure not too unlike a corset. It is rigid but still flexible so that it was easy to move around in. The appearance to me was grey but in some light it turned out to be some subtle hue of dark blue. Be prepared to lift up the bottom of the dress sometimes to walk or dance around in, so that it doesn't get caught on your heels or stepped on by someone.

This was a beautiful dress. I usually wear an 8 but they only had a 6 and sent that. It did fit, despite my 34/36c bust size, but I spilled out over the sides a wee bit. If I had gotten it in an 8, I think it would have been perfect, and I would have been so happy to wear it. The dark blue color is beautiful, and the fabric feels wonderful. The construction is great, and it looks classy. If you can go sleeveless, you can't go wrong with this dress.

I absolutely loved this dress! It fit well, other than at the bust because I'm small chested. Other than that, it was amazing. This dress is very light weight, which surprised me. The length was perfect! I had to send this dress back, but I will be ordering it again. Another con was, I ordered the 0 AND 2 but I was only sent size 2 because they didn't have it in the warehouse. I hope to order this dress again, but with my proper size, 0. Loved it!

I felt amazing and got so many compliments!
I loved this dress. It was comfortable, beautiful, and perfect for the black tie wedding I attended. I weigh 143 pounds and have a very large bust (36DD). I rented an 8R and a 10R. The 8 did not zip all the way, but the 10 was absolutely perfect. I wore a bra, but the top was very supportive and most people could get away without a bra. The boning added a lot of structure to the dress, although it dug into my torso once or twice. The bottom was very flattering and hid my belly while still showing off my figure as a whole. The regular length was a teeny bit too long with my 3-4 inch heels, but nothing I couldn't handle. There was some slight wear on the back of the dress but I'm sure a zillion people rent this dress because it is so pretty. I got so many compliments and I felt great in the dress. This was my first rental and I will definitely be back!

I wore this dress to a formal, white tie ball and felt absolutely gorgeous in it!
Really loved this dress! It fit me really well and looked great. I felt fabulous in it :-) I wore a stick-on backless/strapless bra with the dress that worked great. Didn't have to worry about the strap trying to peek out the back. That's me on the right side of the photo with my sister-in-law and mother-in-law.

Numerous compliments from everyone!!
This dress was amazing! I wore it to my company's holiday gala. Everyone loved it. I also rented the necklace shown with the dress. It was gorgeous. The material is a nice lightweight material and the ruffles are very flattering to your figure. The 6 would have fit me better but was not available. Luckily the fabric tape that was sent helped keep things in place!

amazing customer service.
I wore this dress to a formal function at my church, where I am a stage manager and concerned about modesty. This dress is strapless, but it came up high enough and is properly boned so that I looked great and in place all night, without cleavage at most times. With 3 inch heels, the dress was a perfect length. I loved the fabric, and the ruffles flowed perfectly down my legs. I felt like a million bucks! Or $850 at least!

i got tons of compliments; it was a total hit (and an affordable one)!!
first of all i'm just going to say that rent the runway changed my whole shopping experience! It was so convenient to be able to go online and pick out a fabulous dress and spend the same amount on a prom dress as i would in-store (just for it to sit in my closet with no use). I LOVED THIS DRESS!! it was classic and gorgeous and flowed perfectly, and i got so many comments on it! i will definitely be ordering from here again when i have a formal event to attend!

Lovely
I wore this dress to my junior prom and got many compliments. The dress was simple but elegant and the sweet heart neckline plus the ruching on top gave an extra flair. Mind you, spinning with the ruffles is fun too. The only drawback was that it was slightly too big my rib cage. Other than that it was wonderful and I definitely recommend it.

Understated but lovely
Wore this to a graduation ball and really liked it. I had to rent a size up since the 2 was taken so it was a little big, but my regular size would have been perfect. Dress was a touch long with 3.5" heels but looked beautiful and flowy. The color is a dark charcoal/midnight blue and isn't at all showy, but the style makes the dress stand out. The boning is metal and poked through the lining in a few places (check carefully before putting it on!), but the bodice offered enough support that bra was not needed, and likely would have shown anyway.

I felt like a movie star!!! The 8 fit well also, but i definitely had a bit more room in the 10 to enjoy the delicous food at the wedding. I was wearing 4 1/2 inch heels so that's why i went with the long. I recommend this dress to anyone...it was super flattering!

Fun, flirty, and comfortable
I rented this dress in February for a Mardi Gras ball. It fit perfectly and was so comfortable yet elegant enough for the formal affair. I am tall so the long was the perfect length for me with 4 inch heels. I was originally a little hesitant about the layered ruffles but thankfully they did not stand out as much as they do in the picture for my style is more of a classic-preppy look. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Great dress but RTR need to send it to a tailor!
I wore this dress for a black tie wedding. It was flattering and easy to move in, however, the bodice is very structured and some of the wires in it were poking out and stabbed me all night in my chest every time I moved. The left side of my chest has bright red dots and is tender two days later.
