Uncomfortable
The dress was super tight and difficult to zip, even though the same dress in chiffon fit perfectly. Between that and how shiny it was, I went with the other option I had rented.

I wore this dress for a wedding, it was perfect!!!
I was concerned about the lenght of this dress, but it was actually perfect for high heels. Its a bit tight on the chest area, but not uncomfortable. Lovely dress!

The dress was super sparkly and great for the occasion!
It fit to size, but the dress was really heavy. As the night wore on, it started to feel like it was dragging me down, BUT it looked great. I wouldn't let that deter me from renting again. Also, the sparkles sort of itched under the armpits, but that is minimal.

Beautiful dress that shows signs of significant wear on the interior.
The bust was fairly tight on me, but I am still carrying a few extra lbs from having a baby this year so I could just be squarely between 8 and 10 sizes. The length, waist and hips are perfect for what I needed. I bought this dress on clearance. From the outside it looks perfect but the boning in the bust is completely askew and I'm afraid if I wear it to my event they will poke through the dress.

The dress was perfect for a NYE party in downtown SF.
The fit is great but it was still a bit long for me. I'm 5'2'' and had medium heels and still thought the dress was a bit long. If you wear really high heels this will fit perfectly.

Sequins were great for the winter event. They were not itchy either. Overall great dress.
Once I got it zipped it felt great. Dress runs small in the rib cage, so I had to go up a size. Going up a size made my bust disappear a little bit. Great dress and would recommend if a formal black dress is needed.

It was a black tie wedding and the dress was perfect.
It fit perfectly! I wasn't concerned about a slip on top. The only thing is I'm 5'2 and even with 5 inch heels the dress was dragging. Had to tie a hair tie around the bottom to dance without falling.

I felt glamorous!
This dress was actually a back-up dress. RTR did a fabulous job with customer service, and I am so glad that I ended up with this dress! The dress is very heavy and I felt that the bust area was tight. I had to wear a NuBra and that helped, but I still felt like my boobs were being smothered a bit. All in all, I felt beautiful! The length was just right with a pair of two inch heels.

Perfect for a wedding, not a look-at-me dress but you will not go unnoticed! Doesn't wrinkle!! A++++
The reviews stated the dress ran large so I went for my true size (4R) I decided to make 6R my backup since I knew the 4 would fit, and if it didn't it wouldn't be to the point of falling off & I'd just use fashion tape to make it work. The 4 fit but was really tight on the chest (I don't have a broad back) and it made me look awkward, I wish i had the 6P because the R was a little long and I had to stand tall or pick up the skirt but totally doable. Only big drawback was the boning would poke out and there was nothing -not even fashion tape- that could/would fix it. All in all, GREAT dress, everyone loved it and if i had to, I would do it all over again!!! Get this dress it's definitely a classic -- subtle but sophisticated and you will not go unnoticed!! :) :) :)

Beautiful and comfortable dress!
Wore this dress to a formal Oscar Night. The dress definitely runs small in the chest area, but it was beautiful and I received countless compliments! The black sequins catch the light and have a great understated GLAM look! I would recommend this dress to anyone for a formal evening out.

Small to size. I normally wear a 2 p but that was way too small. Glad I asked for the 4p. It was comfortable and a little hard to zip up but hubby got it! First time using rent the runway. Love it !

Great black dress, I received a TON of compliments
So let me preface with, when I wore this dress last week I was about 3 months pregnant. That being said, while I was still pretty flat in the stomach area, my boobs were HUGE! They are the reason I had to wear the 6R instead of the 4R which fit fine everywhere else. I did not have to wear a bra, one bc it would not fit in the dress and two-usually do not have to. Also good to know- I usually rent the long length, but it wasn't available for the dates I needed, so I settled for the regular length. In this particular dress, regular was perfect with 4 inch heels, barely skimmed the ground. It is fitted around the rib cage and under the breasts, but not uncomfortable, and if I had a small baby bump, it would have been well hidden with the way the dress flowed. Did not have to pull up at the top either, which sometimes happens with strapless dresses. Over all, a real winner, received a ton of compliments. and would totally rent it again! Perfect for an early pregnant girl.

Zipper was hard to close but the dress looked wonderful in person. Photos dont do it justice unfortunately. I wore 3 1/2 inch heels and had no problems walking in it.

This dress is so elegant! I wore it to an awards event and got so many compliments on it!!
I was worried about the length and based on other reviews opted for the petite. Very glad I did. It was a perfect fit and the length did not drag. I brought several different height shoes just in case I needed to add a few inches! The dress is quite heavy so if you have a smaller chest like me then make sure you wear a sturdy strapless. No one likes having to tug their dress up every five minutes ; ) Overall, I would highly recommend this dress!

AWESOME
Don't let the funny face I'm making on the right deter you, this dress was PERFECT for the wedding I attended in late August. I have a very large bust (36 DD) so if you have a large bust you NEED to size up. I usually wear a 12 but had to wear a 16 because I couldn't get the zipper closed in anything smaller. I rented the long and wore with flats (it was a long wedding day affair) and the length was perfect for a 5'11'' frame. The weight of the dress is heavier than expected, but not uncomfortable. I wore this dress for about 13 hours (like a said.... a loooong wedding day affair) and I was completely comfortable and felt glam the entire day.

The dress photographed well and was really comfortable!
The dress fit well and was the perfect length! I wore 4 inch heels and it was just a little short but I was happy to not be tripping. The bust fit well and I didn't have to adjust it during the night (even while dancing). It was a little heavy but not bad at all!

This was a back up dress. I didn't like it.
First of all the zipper was super difficult, almost impossible. But I am very petite and the length was good but the dress looked bulky. It was heavy for a strapless. It just didn't work for my body type.

Classic, elegant dress
This dress was a back up for the event I was going to and I didn't end up wearing it because it wasn't the fashion direction I wanted to go in. However, it is a very nice, classically elegant dress. It has simple elegance and a shape that would look flattering on almost anyone. The zipper is a bit hard to get up because of the dress material but other than that it was a great dress. With 4 inch heels (I'm 5'4''), the dress barely brushed the ground.

It was my backup gown that arrived same day as event! RTR worked with me to find this gown!
Beautiful gown! Ended up going with the 8R over the 6T because of my broad broad athletic back. Tough to find gowns that have a bit of stretch to accommodate my broad back. This gown was long on me (5,3; 3 inch heels) and the bottom of the gown is A LOT of gown. It lays flat while walking but once you sit it's A LOT of gown. So much fabric on the bottom ye be warned. It's a lot to hold up considering it was long to begin with. This gown was beautiful for the occasion and not as shiny as the photo depicts. The sequins were not too much and for a military event, I was worried about that. Gorgeous dress that wasn't overpowering standing next to my husband for his military ball.

This dress is very pretty, and easy to wear.
If you're tall this dress is for you! I ordered the extra long because I am 6'1 and it was WAY too long (Maybe 4+ inches of extra material at the bottom). I contacted rent the runway and ordered just a long and it was perfect. It's a little difficult to zip, but otherwise a great dress!

This dress is classy and beautiful!
I rented this dress last minute for a black tie gala in Florida. It was perfect! The pictures online do not do this dress justice! It arrived a day early than expected and looked great. The dress is a little heavy, but that did not bother me. The sequins looked beautiful and made it look more elegant. It was a little long for me even with my heels on, but only like an inch. I feel the petite would have been too short for my height and heels. The dress was conformable and had no issues! I cannot wait to rent another dress for an event!

Runs small, draws attention to hips and makes your arms irritated.
This dress ran very small. I am usually between a 4 and a 6 but couldn't get the 6 to zip. If I had worn it, I know the fabric would have irritated my arms. Also, the band and fabric really drew attention to my hips (which I would classify as average) in an unflattering way.

Received a great deal of compliments on the gown and felt amazing. All I could have asked for.
Dress seemed a tiny bit long (I am 5'3" and was wearing 4" heels) but totally manageable once I was actually out in it. Comfortable, easy to sit and to dance in and didn't have to worry about losing the top. A couple of the bones in the corset seemed to be coming loose when I unpacked the dress, but again that wasn't really a problem once I was wearing it. So happy that I rented this dress and sad to have it send it back.

Compliments all night!
The dress fit overall very well. The chest is very tight and I almost went a size up because of it. The zipper is also hard to zip, even if the dress is off. The dress is also covered in sequins, but surprisingly doesn't looked tacky! I loved it & had a great experience with RTR!

The dress radiated old Hollywood glamour!
I wore the dress to a Gatsby themed ball so I went for more dramatic accessories than the dress really needed. It would have been better with just a statement earring and no necklace. The 4 was a bit tight in the bust and showed more cleavage than I wanted but the 6 was too big and constantly slipped. The long was perfect with 3" heels, just grazing the floor. The zipper was very stubborn on the 4L, more so than the 6L. The dress was much lighter than I expected. There were 3 girls wearing the same style gown at the ball, 2 in the green chiffon, 1 in the red chiffon. While they looked beautiful, the dresses seemed boring in comparison. The sequins were not too flashy but just enough understated glam to catch the eye while remaining classy.

This was my back up dress and I wish I had a chance to wear it, very beautiful!
I went to the Rent the Runway showroom in NYC Flatiron during Christmas break to try on dresses for NYE in Chicago. I received great service at the showroom. This dress was my 2nd choice, I tried both colors, black and gold. The size 14R was tight at the bust when zipped, so I chose the size 16R as my back up option for New Year's eve. Overall, it's a beautiful dress, camouflages the stomach area well and I will keep it in mind for a future event.

Sequins galore
I ordered this dress for a Mardi Gras ball. When I placed the order I was under the impression that the dress was black with some sort of silver overlay. When I got it, I realized it was all sequin. I was fine with that but was just a little surprised. Overall, I liked this dress and was surprised about the weight of it. It was lighter than I expected. The zipper however, was a total pain. My boyfriend almost couldn't get it up which caused me to panic. After wrestling with it for ten minutes or so, he was able to get it up.

Glittering!
This dress is the perfect amount of fancy! It's not too in your face with all the sequins, just the right amount of shimmer to catch people's eye. I'm 5' 4"/130lbs and I'm usually a RTR 4/4L but I'm glad I went with the 4P on this dress. When wearing strapless, I always feel more comfortable with a tighter fit up top so I know it's not going to slip down as the night wears on. It has a built-in corset/bra so no need to worry there. My date was not very tall, so I wore flats. If you're looking to wear heels I suggest going for the long. This dress made me fell fun and elegant all at the same time! Perfect party dress!

I loved the dress, but it was cut very small in the bust. I couldn't even zipper it. If you have a large chest, this is definitely not for you.

Dress was beautiful. Based on reviews I knew it ran small but the only size available was 4R. It was super tight. Luckily I had help getting into it. It was a solid dress though, felt like a sophisticated princess. The length was just right.

Didn't even make it to the event
The picture for this dress is very misleading; it made it seem more shiny and sleek than sparkly. I was very disappointed when I took this out of the box because I thought it was going to be much shinier intead or sequins. Also, the zipper on this dress is nearly impossible to zip up even when the dress isn't on. You have to really wrestle with the zipper on this dress especially on the bust because the bust runs very very small. I ordered this and another dress for my event and I definitely will be wearing the other one!

It was a dress to remember
It was an absolutely stunning dress in person. No picture can do it justice. My only complaint is that the zipper was a little tricky initially. I needed my mom's help to zip it up, but after zipping up and down on my body a few times by the day of the dance it was no problem at all! I received tons of compliments and would definitely rent it again!

The shipping was very fast and convenient. Also it was extremely easy to ship it back.
The top fit extremely tight and it squeezed me greatly. Also the zipper would get stuck at a certain spot every time. Overall I liked the dress ok enough, I received a lot of compliments. Easy to move in, very classy and elegant. #TauBall #ClassybutSassy
