Not your average black dress

I had a last minute dress emergency so went to the store and found this dress. I definitely did not want to wear black, because usually it can be boring. This dress was just the opposite. It's sexy but still sophisticated. I felt so stylish. This dress has a lot of stretch- but it is tight and not forgiving. I typically wear a 2-4, and rented a 1R, I could have gone up a size.

STUNNING DRESS

I wore this for my friend's black tie wedding in NYC. The material and fit of the dress were perfect. Very chic. One thing to be aware of is the material is fairly thin, so spanx or seamless underwear are needed. Would 100% rent this again!

On time service!! But I didn't receive my first choice dress, which I really wanted to wear.

PROS: The fit was perfect for me. I usually wear size 2 in dress but since this was some spandex material, I'm glad I went with the 3R. The length was perfect with my 2" heels. It was comfy to move in because of the material. CONS: The strap that hangs on arm was a little to long/loose for me and I had to keep tucking it into the chest fold. Maybe you can safety pin it if it's a big issue. I received lots of compliments and people said it looked like a red carpet dress!!

Best dress I have rented from RTR!

The dress fit like a glove. I'm usually a size 4 but I followed the previous reviews and ordered a size up. The dress was still a little snug but The dress is meant to be worn tighter. I would 100% get this dress again for another event. I had compliments all night long on how beautiful and elegant It was, It was a show stopper.

Runs very small, but comfortable and classy

I got this dress in a1R and 2R as my back up size. I ended up wearing the 2R, but it was still too small. I pulled it off but would've been much more comfortable in a 3R! I'm 5'8.5" and 138lbs for context. That being said, it was comfortable considering the size, and the slit is just high enough without it being too sexy. The fabric is rubbed, which keeps everything where it should be and is very flattering. I felt very cool and elegant for this black tie fundraiser. For a black formal dress, I'd definitely wear it again!!

There is no zippers ... just all stretchy material. It was a perfect fit and so comfortable. I wore 3 inch heels but would have been fine with shorter ones.

Stunning dress!

This dress makes you really glamorous! I got so many compliments all night long. And my husband couldn't stop staring at me , He keeps telling me so sexy and stunning woman of the night. By the way my husband chose the dress for me. He was happy that his wife like by everyone. I stand out among all the women at the party. Just to let you know the dress is snagged and hug your body - which I don't mind for myself I am a petite person. Just want you to be ready for that when you rent this dress. Other than that excellent dress choice for a formal event. AAAAA+ 👍👌👌👌

Beautiful dress!

This dress was even more beautiful in person. Compliments the body very well, elegant but also sexy. I did find that it ran a bit small! Great length and beautiful material. Was sad to send it back!

Very form fitting and flattering

This dress was tight but complimentary of my 5'3 and slim, athletic build. The only issue I had with it was the inner/upper lining cut me off at an awkward point on my torso and made my stomach bulge. Luckily I maneuvered the lining up in the front and rid of the awkward roll before the event so that I didn't look like a snake that had just eaten a mouse. This dress was beautiful and flattering but be aware of how form fitting it is!

Beautiful dress, great fabric. I really needed a 2, but they didn't have one available. I figured I could try the 0 based on reviews... nope.

Tight but elegant!

As others have said in the reviews, this dress is really tight with no zipper. It really does fit like a glove. You kind of just slide it on. It's simple so I was able to be a bit more dramatic with my jewelry and makeup!

Gorgeous & different LBD -- but be ready for a body-hugging dress!

Beautiful style and a unique twist on a classic black dress. I took a chance on the dress, knowing that there had been only 1 person who'd reviewed it. She & the RTR team both mentioned that you should size up -- I'd recommend you size up two! I wear a 4, so I rented the 1R and 2R. There was NO way the 1R was going over my hips, and the 2R was skin tight. Thankfully, the RTR team has incredible customer service and helped me turn around a 3R just in time for the Saturday event! The 3R was still very form fitting, but with Spanx (and no bra needed), it's a beautiful silhouette for a formal event.

Gorgeous, Simple Dress

I loved the way this dress looked and it photographed even better. However, it runs small so it was a bit tight, making me have to figit with it, pulling the top up constantly. I'm also pretty tall (5'9") and since there wasn't a long option it was just a tad short, mainly because of the riding up when I walked so that was a bit annoying as well (I wore 4" heels). I ended up wearing the larger of the two sizes ordered, perhaps if I had known it ran small I could have ordered a size up and been more comfortable. Definitely still a great dress though!!

Great dress.

Upon arrival, I did not like the material that much. This dress clings to the body as it has a slinky material feel to it. I needed to size up to 1R, good thing Rent the Runway provides a backup size. Once you put it on, it does look pretty good. I wore a leather jacket and some knockout heels to spice up the look. It worked well after all.

Formfitting and sexy

So glad I got the 2R. With the Spanx and bra underneath, I don't think I had anymore room to spare. The dress hugs the right spots. It felt like it relaxed and stretched out (but not too much) by the end of the night.

The material on dress isn’t formal at all. It almost looks pinstripe with the ribbing.

Skin tight! Definitely size up (or twice) if you go for it. I ended up going with my backup dress from RNR because the dress material wasn’t appropriate at all for a black tie wedding.

The dress was classy and sexy.

The material was extremely comfortable BUT I would definitely say go up a size, or even 2. I normally wear a 0 in just about everything, and this 0 was skin tight on me.

I could not wear the dress as the description was misleading.

I am in my 3rd trimester and specifically chose dresses that were maternity friendly. The website filtered on just these dresses, asked me to select my trimester, and then said to pick the size dress that I would normally wear (if I were not pregnant). I am usually a 2-4 so I ordered 3 3rd trimester maternity friendly dresses ranging in sizes from 2-6 (to be safe) however even the 6 wasn't even CLOSE to fitting. I could not wear any of these dresses and returned them all even before my event.

I’d recommend going up 2 sizes on this dress. I wore my back up but would have been more comfortable with a larger size. I’m typically a 4-6.

I felt like a million bucks! It showed off all my best assets.

Heads up...it fits as tightly as everyone says! But that was the reason I ordered it. I typically have to get most things altered to fit me, especially formal wear. And because I was on a tight deadline, I knew I wouldn't have time for alterations. I ordered the 00 because I wanted to be sure that it would fit snug to my body. It was perfect.

Loved this dress - would definitely rent again.

Really sucks everything in, didn't have to wear a bra with it and it was very comfortable. Definitely couldn't wear underwear with it because of the fit. The slit was a bit damaged when I got it, but nothing noticeable. Wore it 3 times while I had it, would definitely rent again!

Perfect fit, however, would note that the dress reaches the floor without heels, so if you're planning to wear heels, the dress will be a tad above the floor.

So Comfortable!

I selected this dress after the dress I had originally ordered would not be able to come on time, I wanted something simple but elegant that I could spice up with fun shoes and jewlery! This dress was perfect for the black tie wedding we were attending. Stretchy material that hugs your curves but also provides support!
