The dress was perfect for a winter Embassy party. Classy but sexy.
I ended up wearing the large slip with the medium dress, this combination fit perfectly. I got a lot of compliments on the dress and it was very comfortable to wear - even through lots of dancing! There were a few loose strings and pulls on the material but nothing very noticeable. This was my first experience with RTR and I would definitely rent from them again!

It fit AMAZING! Not too tight and not too loose. I wore both the small slip and the small dress. I was comfortable to move around and dance! The v neck and pretty lace was just the right amount sexiness yet tasteful! A beautiful rental that you won't regret!

This dress hid all the flaws!
I ordered the large and the medium but the medium was perfect. It's actually two pieces, a liner and a lace overlay but they went together perfectly. The dress was clingy but hid all the bumps and imperfections. I loved the length (right at the top of the knee) and the long sleeves. It was comfortable and just needed to make sure the liner didn't creep up after sitting. Would highly recommend it!

After reading the reviews, I wore the large slip and medium dress. It fit perfect! I did wear a camisole because it is low cut. I felt beautiful and comfortable all night. I would rent this dress agin.

I felt like a million bucks in this.
I wore this to my birthday dinner- just fantastic. Get ready for some cleavage and strut. The dress flattered my curves in all the ways I wanted it to. Personally I thought it looked better in heels. I had a great night and never wanted it to end.

This dress was all I hoped it would be and more! GORGEOUS!
I wore the medium, but ordered the large just in case because I had read it runs big. I'm honest about my measurements below, so feel free to compare away. It didn't ride at all, it showed glorious cleavage (prepare yourself for that - some body tape may be needed depending on your size), and it was long enough to be classy (and to hide my thighs that I'm not thrilled about right now). I felt gorgeous all night! I would so buy this for my personal closet!

The groom said my dress was amazing, the best dress there...after his bride's gown, of course!
I felt sexy and sophisticated in this, pairing it with Kors leopard heels to give it a fun edge for a wedding I knew would be a party!!! I'm a 6 these days, and the M was NOT flattering at all, more matronly, hit just below my knee and did nothing to help my figure. I wore the small, which gave me curves, but with the medium slip. The small slip was like a strait jacket! Used fashion tape to lay some of the lace on the v-neck flatter. I did feel like I was constantly pulling to straighten out the slip underneath the dress. I can tell this dress has been wore a ton as there is slight piling on parts of the arms. Also, I'm not sure if this is the styling bec the arms are pretty fitted, but the lace in the elbow area splits open when you bend. Overall, a smashing that will make you feel your hottest!

Previous reviews said the part underneath was too tight, I didn't feel that was the case. The only negative was towards the night the fabric on my arms was itchy.

Great fit and so comfortable!
This dress was amazing. The slip was definitely tight, but in a good way... I was still able to move comfortably and the lace layer looked great. I was between a small and a medium and I didn't even try the medium on b/c the small worked out. I just had a baby and am still working down to my prepregnancy size and I felt great in this dress! The neckline is low, but tasteful. I think if you had issues with the neckline, you could wear a scoopneck bra or tank to give you some more support. I think this would also look great with black shapewear underneath to change up the look a bit. It's a great dress that I definitely plan on renting again- and the price is awesome!

Conservative
I did not wear this dress because it looked much more conservative on than in the photos. The lace is pretty dense, the v is conservative, length conservative. I thought I could glam it up with some heels and jewelry, but there was not enough to work with. It would be suitable for tea with your auntie, but definitely not for a NYE party! I should have taken a photo, but it was on and off and then I had to run to the mall!

Beautiful dress that hid all my insecurities
Love love love this dress. I had twins a year ago and I'm still struggling to get back to pre pregnancy weight, especially the belly area. This dress looked great in all the right places (hello boobs!) and made me feel great and confident. Also fit this triple D bust! I used the slip in M and dress in S like suggested in other comments. Will rent this again

Disappointing
I rented this dress for a NYE wedding that also happened to be my 30th bday. The large had a large hole I a seam of the the lace overlay and the medium was missing it's underlay. This was an extremely disappointing experience as I didn't have a back up dress and had to scramble last minute for an out of town wedding. This dress is also not meant for chesty women. While the lace is stretchy, it is so low cut and tight. There is next to no room in the slip for boobs. If you are D cup like I am, you might risk a nip slip if moving at all

This dress is cute, comfortable and a great length
I rented this dress for New Year's Eve and really enjoyed wearing it. I rented the Small and Medium and ended up wearing the Small. The nude slip was a bit too tight, but the lace long sleeve fit perfectly. It was pretty low cut, but the length was great. Not too short and not too long.

It fit like a comfortable glove -- snug and stretchy.
The v neck could be pulled open for a more provocative look or pulled closer together. I have thighs and butt, so I had to occasionally pull the dress down l, but nothing that was too annoying. I'm also extremely broad shouldered and didn't find it pulling on my shoulders like most tops do. I loved it.

I LOVED dress, it is so classy.
I wore the medium nude slip with the small black lace cover and that worked perfectly. For comparison I'll share my measurements because I know that helped me when I was looking. I'm 5'2", 135 Ibs, and I wear a 36C bra. The medium black lace dress was too big, the small fit perfectly but the slip was really tight, hence swapping slips worked perfectly. I would highly recommend this dress

NYE dinner
I chose this dress for a NYE dinner and evening out with my husband. I ordered both a size 4 and a size 6 as a backup. The size 4 fit just fine. A little extra material in the back but the dress still fit nicely. The material got a little itchy after a couple of hours. Overall, though, it was a nice dress for dinner and we had a good time!

Rented for our anniversary dinner in NYC
Beautiful dress! Very comfortable. I only rated it 4 stars because there was a little tear in the lace and because I rented over a holiday, I couldn't exchange it. Ultimately I decided the tear was minimal and only slightly noticeable, so I wore it anyway. It is very low cut, but with a simple safety pin, all was good, and my husband loved it! Without the tear it would have been 5-stars for sure!

Having a beautiful dress to look forward to!
I read the reviews and got a small and a medium, because others said the slip was tight (I am 5'4, 120lbs, 34c). The small in both the dress and slip fit me perfectly. My only issue was the dress was a tad big in the shoulders, but once you get moving it isn't noticeable. It was knee length on me. I felt so pretty for the NYE party! Comfortable, classy and sexy all at the same time.

I didn't get to wear it!
I wanted to wear this for my anniversary, which happens to be on New Year's Eve. I ordered both the small and medium, and started with the small. It did not lie close to the body and stood away from my legs at the bottom. I did like that it had its own spandex under slip, but it didn't matter because the dress was stretched out in places. Such a bummer! I went with my backup.

I loved this dress so, so much. I rented it for Christmas and I wanted to wear it forever!
The slip is snug, but it didn't ride up, there was no picking at the dress, no constant smoothing, no adjusting... Just pure gorgeousness! I want to buy it and wear it everywhere - I'll be renting it again and again, I think. There's a subtle, classic smolder to this dress and I simply loved it. It was true to my size - I wear 4L jeans usually and have a teeny bust and I went with the S. I didn't even try the M I ordered as a backup size because the S was like a glove. RTR should probably put me on a rent-to-own program with this one ;)

Received many compliments on the dress.
I wore the medium slip with the large dress. I thought the dress made me a look little larger than what I actually am, especially through the waist which is unusual , because I usually have problems with the hips not fitting correctly, dress was flattering on the hips. It was a pretty dress and I am glad I wore it but also glad I don't own it. RTR was great and I love the service.

Loved it.
Others commented on the slip. I think the slip is supposed to be shorter to give the illusion that there's nothing underneath. I wore this to my work Holiday Party. It was perfect. Except the neckline was a bit low and I had to keep fixing it. Other than that, it was comfortable and fit great. I got both the M & L and wore the M. The large was a bit baggy.

classy sexy, runs large
Overall fit was ok. It was too long on me and came below the knee so I used some fashion tape. It was still a little roomy in the chest/shoulders. It's classy sexy. The dress was in good shape. Not sure I'd rent again though, might look for a different black lace dress in the future.

I received compliments on this dress all night long! It was perfect - classy and comfy!
I needed a dress for an outdoor event in December. I tend to stick with sleeveless dresses, so this was a new look for me, but very classy and comfortable. I received compliments from strangers at the event throughout the evening. I ordered a medium and backup large and ended up wearing the large slip with the medium dress. (The medium slip was just too tight to be comfy.) The dress hugged my body but had just enough stretch. I would totally rent this again for a winter event or cold weather - this was my first time using Rent The Runway - and I am sold!

The dress does seem to run a little small, so I would order up if you are between two sizes- I typically wear Medium, but wore the Large in this dress. It is very comfortable and fit great
