Cute and comfy LBD

I work this to my office Christmas party. It was very comfortable and cute, but a little short. It's a pretty simple dress but I dressed it up with my accessories.

Rented as part of my Unlimited membership.

This dress was beautiful, and actually much "fancier" than I thought from the picture. The material was also beautiful. I rented this for everyday but it is much too nice for that. It was also tight in the bust. If I rented this again I would rent it for a cocktail party and size up from my normal medium.

A classy spin on the "cold shoulder" trend

This was a great short dress for a formal, winter wedding. The bare shoulders made it trendy, but the thick material kept it classy. Good length for a petite person and not too fitted. Easy to breathe for an hourglass shape.

Super cute and flattering! Loved the detail.

I rented this as a backup to wear to a dinner in the city. Plans changed so i didn't get to wear it but would rent again. The dress is very short so you need to be comfortable showing some leg. The button details around the open shoulders were a surprise and made the dress adorable! I hope I can rent again and wear it out!

Loved the style of dress but the sleeves were very baggy! Otherwise fit well.

Perfect for NYE

I rented this dress for NYE and it was perfect. I wanted to dress up, but was going out with people who don't like to get too dressed up. This dress was so subtly glam. It's a LBD with a little extra. The sleeves made it more casual and the velvet buttons are adorable. The fit of the dress is gorgeous. It's just flowy enough to not be tight but it's not too flowy that you lose your shape. The material was great quality and it was well lined. I paired it with statement black Kate spade drop earrings, a gold sequin clutch and nude pumps. Will definitely be renting again. Perfect winter dress.

Fun and comfy dress

Loved this dress for NYE! Paired with booties and Opening Ceremony clutch for an easy party look. Note that the fit is a bit straight and narrow thru the hips so would recommend sizing up if you have a bum / curves. Impossible to see in the photo, but there are sweet Pom Pom details around the cutouts and cuffs.

The fit was great! It wasn't like wearing a potato sack, it fit loosely but hugged all the right spots!

Cheeky LBD

This dress fit me very well and actually looked better in person. The only downside is that it is pretty short, however, I wore it with tights and booties so it ended up looking just fine.

Fun and flirty!

I loved this dress. I wore it several different ways throughout my unlimited membership rental. I put a sweater on for work and then wore heels and no sweater and some statement jewelry for a night out. The length was fun for this dress and hit above my knee. I want to buy this one!

Perfect with turquoise jewelry and boots for a rodeo themed fundraiser!

Usually wear a size 6, and the small was perfect. Could have gone with the medium, too, just a tad bit looser and longer. Wonderful for hiding the post baby tummy, I felt glamorous in this one! Wish I could buy it! Lots and lots of compliments all night long.

awesome awesome LBD!

i'm typically a 4, the small fit perfectly. it is a shift dress so there is plenty of room around the midsection. hit mid thigh for me, wore w black tights and booties. loved the cold shoulder trend and the pirate sleeves. it really worked out well. very slimming. best worn w razorback or a non standard bra because it can peek out. highly recommend for a comfortable non traditional dress!

Perfect for semi-casual, winter wedding!

This was my first Rent the Runway experience and this dress did not disappoint! I loved the new open shoulder trend with the velvet buttons that dressed it up! I decided to wear the medium (over the small) as I have long legs and the small was a bit short. Otherwise, it fits pretty true to size!

Perfect LBD

Perfect little black dress... I wore this to a retirement dinner and got compliments all night long. I'm normally a small but sized up in this dress and am glad I did. It would have been a bit tight in the rear if I hadn't. I'm 5'4, 135 athletic build

Lightweight- Fun style.

I did not end up wearing this dress for a couple reasons. One was it was a little too loose at the top and tight in the hips. Also the material is very lightweight and thin. I couldn't tell from the picture but this is a warm weather dress. Not for the cold. Would try renting again when warmer weather comes.

Not much shape

Maybe I should have gotten a small or maybe this just wasn't great for a curvier body type. The sleeves are more billowed than they appear. That combined with the shapeless body of the dress just wasn't flattering. Cute button details on arms though

Photos do not do it justice!

Wore this to a dinner date with a friend on a cold and dreary NYC night. So comfy. Great fabric! Warm enough with a coat and tights to walk a few blocks. Sexy shoulders in the restaurant. Great LBD for traveling! Can be dressed up or down.

Such a fun '70s look!

The material of this dress makes it fit perfectly! It clings to all of the right places. The cutouts are flattering and the bell sleeves are so much fun! I wore it with black tights because of the weather, but took them off for the picture so you could see it is short. I loved this dress! The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of 5 is because it was missing two buttons.

Trendy and beautiful

This dress fit great - I wore it on a date and dressed it down with flats. I loved the cold shoulder look with the pom-poms around the cut outs. Super trendy fun dress! It fits true to size/slightly on the smaller side.

Cute but fancier than I expected

I actually liked this dress, but didn't end up wearing it. It was a little tight on the bottom half, but I still could have worn it. It was just a little fancier than I anticipated for the event. The sleeves are very billowy and the little velvet buttons around the neckline (which I hadn't noticed) dress it up a bit. The off the shoulder look is very flattering how're and fit well.

Such a comfortable dress!

Based on a few other review I opted for the M instead of the small and I was pleased I did as I wore this to a work event and wanted to make sure the dress wasn't too tight.

Runs Large

It is very cute, but it runs large and wrinkles very easily. If you are tall, this is good for you. If you are petite like me, then it is way too big and long. The arms look ridiculous on short arms.

I felt sexy, but comfortable and "age appropriate" at a club. The dress was perfect for January

This dress fits amazing and is so incredibly comfortable. The sleeves are loose, but have a tighter cuff at the wrist. The cold shoulder makes it unique and "sexy." I love the looser bodice, but it's shorter so you still feel sexy showing some leg.

Cold shoulder sassy dress

Great girls night out or date night dress. Only reason why I didn't rate it a 5 is because it was a little snug on the hip area. However, my body shape is bigger in the booty area so that will probably not be an issue for others.

This worked well for a retirement party at a hotel. I am 5'9" and it was pretty short. I had to be careful not to bend over too far but otherwise it was cute.

Cute dress but not good for girls with bigger hips/butt

I rented this dress for an event at my law school. I didn't end up wearing it to that because it was way too short. The dress is really pretty and the sleeves are gorgeous, but the lining of the dress is smaller than the actual dress and has no stretch. It kept riding up all night and making it even shorter. I think this would be a great dress for someone who doesn't have a large hip/butt area!

Better than just a little black dress.

This dress exceeded my expectations! From first view it's just a little black dress but it looks so much extra in person. I'm debating whether to bite the bullet and buy it as my go to black dress.

Perfect party dress

Wore this to a gallery opening and received a ton of compliments. The material is very expensive looking and the small velvet buttons along the open shoulders was a great added touch. I received a ton of compliments and even considered purchasing. I wore the small and it fit great everywhere but was a bit snug along the hips and butt, so would recommend sizing up if you are curvy in your bottom half. The arms are quite billowy but I think it added nicely to the look.
