The dress was beautiful and very comfy!

The dress fit like a glove and hugs your body in all the right places. My only complaint was the shoulder straps were slightly loose ( I have small shoulders and run into this problem a lot), I used double sided tape to secure them to my body and problem solved! I received tons of compliments all evening long. This was my favorite rental thus far.

Perfect for a black tie optional wedding! Felt glamorous!

I just had a baby 5 months ago so I'm very weary of form fitting dresses. The cut of this dress hugged in all the right places. I felt confident and sexy. I'm very happy I ordered the 4 and the 6 bc the 6 was a much more comfortable fit.

Georgeous dress! So many compliments!

The dress fit great! This was my first time using Rent the Runway and everything worked out pretty perfect! I was a bit nervous since the backup size was out but the dress fit! I needed help with the zipper because of how awkward it was and my chest is a bit large. The zipper was tough getting up but once done, the dress was beautiful and gave nice movement! I had chosen this dress because other reviews had stated that they could wear a full size bra with this dress. I did but I had to ensure my bra was covered all night as the V goes pretty low both in the front and the back. I don't know if I have a shorter chest area than others but I was definitely thankful I had tape to hold the dress down. Loved the dress! I would get it again! It was just so classic and beautiful.

Dress is well made, classy, and glamorous! It was comfortable all night. I'm petite, so it was worn with 4 inch heels. I'm a 30F in bra size but the dress fit well.

Classy enough for a work function, but fits well in all the right places. Would definitely recommend this dress to anyone who has a larger bust-very flattering. The longer length was perfect.

You'll have eyes on you.

I felt like this dress ran a little small. The zipper was really finicky so I had to size up. I loved the way this made me feel. It was a very flattering dress.

Dress was elegant, hugged all the curves in the right places, and for me, comfort was an A+!

Fit was tight throughout bust and waist, then loosened up through hips to the floor. Be careful with the length because fashion tape wouldn't fix this dress. I'm 5'3" and the regular length with 2-3" heels was perfect. Dress was easy to wear with a regular bra (I'm a 34DD) and lace didn't rub under the arms as can often happen. It's a classic look that doesn't go out of style but has enough interesting detail in the cut and fit that it doesn't just blend in with other black dresses! The zipper was very tough though -- from others renting it a few times too many... Make sure you have someone help you get in and out!

Beautiful dress for a New Years wedding

Loved the dress except as others have stated it runs really short. I am 5'7" and the long didn't even hit the floor barefoot. I wore small heels but a huge pet peeve of mine is when dresses are too short... So that was a bummer!

Too much fabric up top for me. I have a large bust size and it still was too much fabric all over, not just regarding the cleavage area. It is a beautiful fabric however and I wish it had fit.

Wanted to love it --- but not a good choice for taller girls.

Rented this for a charity concert in which I was performing. It was the perfect style for the Classic Hollywood/Evita vibe I was aiming for --- if only it FIT! I'm quite small-chested and extremely narrow through the ribs and shoulders from the side, so I can't be *too* upset that the shoulder straps gaped as badly as they did --- tucking them under themselves with a pair of safety pins fixed that issue, However, I was extremely disappointed by the length. The size 4L barely brushed the top of my feet before I even put heels on. The 6L was no better in that department, and wasn't as alluringly form-fitting as the 4, so I went with the smaller size. If it were just *three* inches longer, it would have been perfection. As it was, it really shortened my legs and looked very tacky floating off the ground. I'm so happy with photos from that evening that are shot from the waist up (I added the Ben Amun Victorian Statement necklace and it paired beautifully) --- shorter ladies will probably love it from head to toe.

Dress was a perfect fit! Length for my height was great, like it was hemmed for my size. No need for a bra top was tight and comfortable fit. Lots of compliments and felt great all night.

Lovely

It's a nice dress. I didn't end up wearing it because it wasn't as comfortable (the trumpet style skirt makes it difficult to walk) as my other choice. I wish the gold underneath would show through better. Also, the 6R felt a inch or two too short for my 5'7" frame which surprised me.

Great dress but a little short. Wore this for a winter photo shoot and it turned out great.

It fit well except the length was short and I am only 5'3. I thought the dress looked good on my body type.

Star-quality gown!

This dress fit a little tight over my hips so I went with one size up and was perfectly comfortable! It is very form-fitting, so be prepared to show those curves! Compliments did not stop all night long and I loved this dress! Length was perfect. I am 5'6 and wore 4 inch black heels.

I went with the 0 because the length was an issue for me with the 2. I'm short and petite so the 0 was perfect (I wore 5 inch heels). It was elegant and classy. I got so many compliments! It was comfortable and I could move around easily. Would love to go back to that night. The dress was a hit!

It came right on time despite the wedding being over the New Year's Day holiday!

This dress was beautiful and elegant perfect for the black tie wedding we attended! I received endless compliments on this dress! However, The bust ran very small in the dress making it very difficult to zip and unzip the dress. The zipper was stuck and barely moved. I wasn't sure it was going to zip! The overall fit ran small as I had to wear the 10 but normally would wear an 8. The material had very little give to it and was hard to dance in. Overall, loved the dress but it had some downfalls. I don't think I will rent this dress again.

Endless compliments! This dress is beautiful!

I rented this dress for a black tie wedding, it was my first RTR experience and I will definitely be doing it again! I got so many compliments on the dress and felt like a million bucks. The dress was a little short... I was going to wear flat sandals but didn't feel dressed up without heels. I wore 3in heels and the dress was an inch or two off the floor, which was fine because I wasn't stepping on it or being stepped on. I only gave the dress a 4 out of 5 because there was a metal piece sticking out on the inside of the dress that was pinching me, I wore the 8R.

Beautiful dress and great for petites!

I rented this for a black tie optional wedding and loved it. I was 4 months postpartum at the time and it was very flattering and comfortable. It definitely runs short - I'm 5'1" and with 3 inch heels it was almost too short. The 6 fit like a glove but I ended up wearing the 8 just to get a little more length, and the bottom of the dress was a little frayed on the 6.

Stunning dress. Got lots of compliments

This was a last minute over night the day of the event cross my fingers it fits dress after my initial selections didn't work. My normal size is 8 or 10 but the 12l fit me like a glove. Zipper was tricky as well but once in it , it was absolutely perfect for the charity black tie event. I am 5'7" and the long was a must with heels. This was my first RYR experience and I give the entire process 5 stars

Okay

I loved the look of this dress on the model, but if you have a large bust you end up with a "TON" of cleavage - I was attending a black tie wedding for a work colleague so opted for something more conservative. Nice lining and overall fit.

The dress was gorgeous. I received compliments on it all night. I wore 6in heals and the length was perfect. The only con was both the 8L's and 6L's zippers were very hard to zip.

If you are looking for elegant, flattering and comfortable, this is your dress!

I wore this dress to a black tie wedding. The fabric has stretch to it, so it it super easy to wear. I wore Spanx, just because the dress is very form fitting and I didn't feel like sucking in the whole night (make Spanx do the work!!). I am 5'10'' and wore 3 inch heals. The dress skimmed the tops of my heels. I would have preferred it to be longer but it still looked great. I wore Kate Spade chandelier earrings with it in the same blue as the dress but gold would look amazing with it too. You'll definitely get compliments in this one- and great for tall girls :)

I felt like a million bucks! Which is a nice way to feel for a stay at home mom!

The fit was perfect. My only complaint comes from my height - I'm 5'-2" and the dress was just barely off the ground with 5" heels. I was a little nervous it would catch on the escalator...! But overall, it was fantastic. I looked great and the service went smoothly. Last minute shipping was steep but that was my own fault for not getting it together sooner. Free return was awesome and easy. Oh, and my bust is actually larger than listed because I'm currently breast feeding - took a little maneuvering in that area but still fit!

Not the best fit, but I didn't have a back up

My back up size wasn't available at the last minute & the dress I chose as a back up was not flattering on me in the least. This dress fit true to size, or maybe a bit small in the waist, I have to wear a very tight corset to make it fit me. However, I'm busty, 34E and the bust is loose. If you're taller it might fit better because that could just be that the straps are too long for me. I'm 5'1" and barefoot in the photo, this is an 8R, much too short. I will have to find some flats to wear.

Gorgeous dress was perfect for a wedding!!

I rented this dress for a formal wedding and it was gorgeous! Warning- this dress has a very annoying side zip though! This is always a struggle for me because my girls are large for how small my waist is. My husband had to assist in getting me in the dress and there may have been skin being zippered involved lol. Once on it's really very flattering. If your brad strap is lower in the back you could wear a standard bra with this. I opted to not wear one and just put cutlets in for a little push up. I opted for the 0L over the 2L because the 2L had a good handful of extra fabric on the stomach area. The 0L also had extra fabric but that was ok as I enjoyed being able to breathe all night and the fabric texture hid all that. I am 5'4 and was wearing 5 inch heels. The bottom of the dress didn't cover my toes but I wasn't tripping on it or getting caught on it all night which was nice an there were lots of stairs at the venue. I rented the Dark Wing Necklace to go with this and it was gorgeous!

I really enjoyed the experience of renting with Rent The Runway. It's was so easy.

I noticed that it runs small, I'm a 14 but I had worn my alternate size which is a 16. It is also very shot. I am 5'5" which is considered average but the dress was a perfect length without heels so I had to wear flats or else it wouldn't touch the ground. Other than that I really enjoyed wearing this dress, it's hugged my curves nicely and I felt beautiful.

Side zip does require assistance. The dress is beautiful, but it does hold the heat in so a cooler or indoor event works better. It is a attention getter. I am a 38DDD, and it fit perfect.

Compliments Galore ! Even from the bride

True to size, as everyone mentioned the zipper was a little troublesome getting up. Im 5"4 and im thankful for the reviews that advised to get the Long option. The free size was a 10R and it was way too short and large for me so the 8 worked out great ! The top was a bit big for me and im a 34c . The dress wasnt in the best condition as the boning on the inside kept pricking me . Also the lace was slightyk torn in some areas. Overall i loved the fit , complimebts galore. I definitely stood out and everyone kept asking if i used RENT THE RUNWAY again haha

This dress fit true to size and was beautiful! It was so classic and very form fitting. Compliments all night! The only down side was the outside tulle was a little itchy under your arm, but I wouldn't hesitate to rent again!

Would not rent this dress again

1. I am a size 4 normally. 5'3" - 34DD - wide hips - 132lbs - I think I am about at a 26 inch waist. 2. Zipper on both the 4R and 6R were difficult to zip - like everyone else has said! I used this oily baby primer to loosen up the zipper, and it worked perfectly - Thank goodness!! 3. I wore 4 inch heels and the dress skimmed the ground perfectly. 4. I did not have to wear a bra!! :) The top fit my chest perfectly and I still had support. 5. The dress does not have any give, which was a negative. My waist is much smaller than my hips, so I would have liked it if the mid-section was a little more stretchy to really accentuate my waist more. The back also stuck out (because there's no give), so it didn't make my butt look as nice from the size. You couldn't really see the curve. 6. From behind and from the front - Gorgeous! Not so much from the side. 7. The dresses came a day early, and the return was easy. I honestly probably could have worn a 2R. It probably would have fit my waist better.

It's me, not you...

Overall, the dress was too short and too large in the top. To be more specific, I needed to cut a couple of inches off the straps for the but to fit better. Obviously, this isn't made to be off the shoulder ;) Also, it was plenty tight in the hips but needed nipped in at the waist. It just wasn't a good fit for my tall, hourglass, short torso figure. Beautifully made dress though!

This dress fit like a glove!

This dress was worn for a black tie wedding. I ordered an 8R and 10R. While both fit very well I went with the 10R because it was slightly longer. I was wearing like 4" heels which turned me from 5'2" to 5'6" so I need a slightly longer dress. The dress was comfortable to sit, dance in and stand in!!! I wish I owned this stunning dress!!!
