This dress was perfect for a black tie wedding!

I am so glad I rented the 8L as a backup because the 6L was too snug. I felt like I was going to pop out of it if I had worn it. The 8L fit comfortably and the length was perfect even with 4 inch heels!

Excellent customer service! Leila (spelling?) at the Flat Iron store was super helpful!

My first dress (Badgley Mischka sweetheart ruched black dress was too big) didn't work out so I went to the store to exchange it. I even made a styling appointment bc I NEEDED a gown for a black tie wedding. Due to it being last minute they only had the long length, but at a time crunch I can't complain! Great dress but the straps were a little too long and loose. A little double sided tape and a couple safety pins fixed that! Due to the loose straps I wouldn't rent this dress again, but maybe the Petite length would've fit better? All in all, It's a beautiful dress.

Super comfortable- Perfect black dress!

I didn't end up wearing this because there was a problem with the zipper (which was sad because I loved this one). The dress is very comfortable. it's tight but doesn't feel constricting. The lace and shape if the dress is flattering- it does show a lot of skin in the chest area, so it might be tough for big chested girls. All in all, I would have worn it if there wasn't a zipper issue!

A amazing fit! Tons of complements, made me feel Like a princess

Wow what a wonderful dress, I rented 2 dresses, I searched 100s of dresses and found 2 that I had to have. Both were amazing. I got tons of compliments and I can't wait to use Rent the Runway again. It made me feel beautiful even though I'm not a size 2

All of the compliments I received.

I loved this gown. I received many compliments and I was sad to return it. The only downside was the straps were to big and it was the smallest size available. Other than that, I was very happy.

Work for blacktie wedding. Compliments all night!

I felt truly glamorous in this. Wore the 2, as I just had a baby and the bust area is larger than normal on me at the moment. Bust was NOT fitting into the 0, although the 0 fit best elsewhere. 0 would have been short though... And I had 4 inch heels for the evening so the 2 was better for length and bust area. Wore spanx, although the fabric does suck in a little bit. Would rent again. It's simple but the lace is elegant. Felt beautiful but not flashy. Was perfect for blacktie wedding.

Good fit for people who sometimes find other 0s too loose

Got this dress overnighted to me when I was swimming in the 0 of my first choice. I had to wear the tallest heels I own to make the long work, I'm 5' 4.5". I have a small bust but was able to wear a dramatic push up bra by using garment tape to keep my bra straps in line with the dress straps.

I loved this dress. I got compliments all night and felt so good in it.

I had to use fashion tape to keep the top of it from folding over and to keep the straps in place because they were very long.

Form fitting, hugs your curves, nice lace detail. Dragged a little for me so if you're on the short side you will need 5+ inch shoes otherwise it's a great dress!!

Love the fit... The fabric has a little stretch to it, so it was comfortable all night. The lace detail is really pretty. The length was just right with my heels.

Knowing that the dress would arrive on time and it would be beautiful!

My daughter is 5'6 and about 125 lbs. She wore a size 2 regular,, she should have ordered a long because she wore heels. Luckily, the heels worked. If we ordered it again, we would order the long.

Classic, elegant, and flattering.

Fits like a glove, the stretchy fabric makes it pretty forgiving. Zipper sticks a little because of the lace so make sure you have a friend to help you get it on and off. Absolutely beautiful dress, classy and simple. Would definitely recommend it to anyone!

Very Comfortable and easy to dance in.

Dress was perfect, I was able to eat and dance / party all night. I wore this to a wedding on Halloween and the black lace was just the right touch. The bridesmaids ended up being in black as well so I matched the theme!

Classy and sexy dress.

The dress was form fitting, yet very flattering. It hugged my curves in the perfect way and I felt wonderful in it. Although I was scared it would be too tight as I sometimes can wear a 6 and sometimes an 8, the 6 worked perfectly and it was so comfortable. I think it would have been too short if I had not ordered the 6 long, especially with heels, so I would recommend getting the longer length if you're on the taller side. Overall, great first experience with RTR.

The dress fit like a glove and I got so many compliments!

The dress is very form fitting, yet the material is stretchy so it's easy to maneuver in. I'm usually a size 10 in dresses since I have an athletic build (broad back and shoulders), but I wore the 12 for a little extra room for my back and chest. Overall the dress was gorgeous and hugged all the right curves, would definitely recommend for any special occasion.

Great fit and length. Rent the long if you're going to be wearing heels and you're over 5'6 like me!

I loved this dress. The fit, the lace, the length. The flare at the bottom really made the dress and everyone complimented me and asked where I got my amazing dress. I rented both the 4L and 6L in case the smaller size didn't fit but I think it ran perfectly according to size (I normally wear a 4). I would definitely recommend this for a winter wedding or formal affair. My first RTR dress and I can't wait to rent more!

Received many compliments throughout the evening - classy with a dash of sex appeal.

Fit like a glove! I'm 5'7" and the L was perfect with 2 inch heels - if you're tall, size up on the length. The gown was gorgeous; the lace and the slight train made for a nice twist on an otherwise straightforward black gown. This dress also made my otherwise small chest seem more va-va-voom, but in the best of ways. Only con was that the zipper was tough. Not because of a tight fit but because of the lace - had to have my husband help out!

Fits like a glove

I'm 5'5, 116 lbs. normally wears a 0 or 2. The 0L fit great. This dress is elegant yet sexy, a simple cut yet very intricate lace work, and the fit is incredible. If you want to look like Nicki Minaj this is NOT the dress for you. This dress is more like the styles of Heidi Klum or Angelina Jolie.

All the compliments

When I first took the dress out of the garment bag, it seemed like nothing to write home about. Simple black dress, with some. However when, I added the some simple shoes along with a silver bracelet and earrings, it was such a knockout and the definition of the perfect (not so) little black dress! The sheer portion at the bottom really CDs out in pictures! Also, the cleavage area looks great! I wore it to law school prom, received a ton of compliments, and nobody else had it (which is amazing since I live in NYC with two Rent the Runway stores and everyone does RTR). It's definitely underrated. Oh, and it came a day earlier than it was supposed to, but I still got to keep it until the date I asked for. Awesome sauce!

This dress is by far my absolute favorite dress I have rented from RTR. The fit was so perfect, it really made me feel sexy and yet classy at the same time. The fabric was beautiful. I loved loved loved this dress!

The dress(es) came in a fashionable manner! I was very comfortable and quite complimented. Thanks!

I wore this dress to a Moonlight Cruise (semi-formal attire) and chose this dress kinda last minute. I was sorta nervous but the dress was perfect in every way. I'm slim and wasn't sure how the dress would do for my small boobs, but *thumbs up*. My friends loved it on me (and some of the guys on the cruise said so, too). Can't wait rent from RTR again!

This dress is sure to give any girl the perfect hourglass shape!

This dress is definitely a knock out gown. It fits true to size and is very easy to wear. My only complaint is that this dress can be a little heavy so you might not want to wear it to a summer event! Have fun!

Fits snugly but not too tight. The material is thick and pretty comfortable. The only issue was that the top part folds down a bit. I had to pin it to my bra, but then it was fine.

Simply a lovely dress; romantic yet a little gothic and all round studding.

I love this dress for my junior prom and loved it! The lace was gorgeous and overall it was such a classic, romantic, and timeless gown. I'm 5'8" and wore 3.5" heels and the long fit me perfectly! I'm also 130 pounds and got the size 4L. The 2L also fit pretty well but the 4L was just a bit from roomy (great for dancing and getting in and out of the car and what not).

Elegant, formal dress. Perfect for the occasion.

This was my first RTR experience and I couldn't be happier! I got compliments in this dress all night! I'm 5'8" and the length was perfect with my 4" heels. In normally a size 10, but opted for the 12 so I could have a little more wiggle room. It was very comfortable and I was able to move on the dance floor without problems. The only issue was the part above the dress; it would fold over a little, but I just ignored it or fixed it for pictures. I absolutely recommend this dress and using RTR!

The dress fit perfectly and was very comfortable. I received tons of complements and felt great!!

This was my first time using RTR so I was nervous about choosing a dress that I didn't see in person first, but I couldn't be happier with how the dress looked. It was extremely comfortable so I could move and dance easily all night long without having to constantly readjust. A read a few others had issues with the straps falling and the lining showing so I bought fashion tape just in case but I didn't need it. I got a 2L and a 4L for my sizes and tried on the 2L first and it fit great so I didn't even try the 4L. I'm glad I got the long because the length was just right so the regular size probably would have been too short. The material is stretchy so I didn't feel like it was too tight. I got my dress right on time and easily shipped it back right down the road at a UPS. I will definitely be using RTR again! I received sooo many complements and felt amazing!

Beautiful!

Gorgeous. Runs a little big. The straps were big but I pinned them & used a lot of double stick tape. I'm 5'7 & wore 4' heels & I'm glad I got the L length.
