No cons. This dress made me feel like a million bucks as well as was perfect for a black tie event. Wore shorter heels and it was a little long but not crazy!

RTR coming in clutch!
RTR for the win! This was my first ever rental with Rent the Runway & it won't be my last. I ordered this dress pretty last minute on the Monday before the wedding and it delivered in good time that Friday. The 2P was perfect! I'm 5 feet and wore about 3-4in heels. Tons of compliments! :)

One of my favorite RTR dresses yet!
Super sexy and elegant at the same time. I am 5'7 and or 1 inch heels and the regular length it worked perfectly. The dress was a little snug right at the rib line, however this made the fit even more flattering and gives you a little shape. Would definitely recommend this to anyone going to a black tie wedding!

I got so many compliments wearing this dress, I felt like a movie star!
I am 5' 2" so I was worried about the length. It was a bit long, I wore 3" heels and it was still touching the ground, so I used temporary hem tape but it came out by the end of the night. I would suggest if you're 5' 2" or shorter to get the petite size, or wear taller heels if you can, or just let it be long, it really wasn't too much of a hassle. The overall fit was perfect otherwise! I love the cut out detail, it adds sexiness without showing too much. I also love the open slot in the front. This dress is 100% polyester so if you're going to an outdoor wedding and it's hot I would advise against. I ordered a size 6 and 8 because I had read other reviews that said it runs small, which is true. I am usually a size 4 and ended up wearing the 8. I do have a large chest and smaller waist so sometimes it is hard to get the right fit, but the 8 was perfect!

Perfect dress for a wedding or other formal occasions!
Overall the dress was great! Does fit tighter in the chest area so I would recommend sizing up. Also there is boning that runs down the left chest that caused me to be a little uncomfortable at times when sitting.

Loved this dress for a black tie wedding!
The dress fit pretty snug in the hips and butt. I am 5'1 and 112 lbs. I was really nervous about the dress being too long but I wore 3 inch heels and it didn't drag. I would highly recommend this dress its really flattering on and I received a ton of compliments.

Comfortable elegant dress! A must rent!
I wore the 8L and unfortunately the hem was broken which made it too long, but after some safety pinning it worked out fine. I am 5'7" and wore 4 inch heels. Super comfortable dress that was flattering and easy to move in. Would rent again!

Flattering dress, very comfortable and easy to dance in!
The dress fit like a glove! I'm usually a 4R. I'm 5'3 140 lbs with a curvy athletic figure. Because I have a 34DD I ended up going with the 6R to give the girls see breathing room! The 4R was snug around the chest, so if you are well endowed I recommend going up a size! I got so many compliments! Such a beautiful dress!!

I wore this for a black tie wedding, it is absolutely stunning! The 4L was a little snug underneath the arm, so I went with my back up size (6R) to give my self a little more wiggle room. I have longer legs, so typically I need a little extra length on dresses, but the R was great with 4" heels.The dress is easy to accessorize, very comfortable. It was great for a fancy wedding while also comfortable enough to have a great time on the dance floor. I would 100% recommend!

Perfect dress!
Dress was very comfortable. Didn't even need to wear a bra (and I'm a 30DDD) because of the boning in the top of the dress. I'm 5'0" and would have preferred a 4P but this size was not available. I felt great in this dress.

Okay dress
4R fit well. I am 5'4", and the back of the dress snagged a lot on my 2.5" heels when I walked. 3" heels would have been just right. My torso is a bit too pale though so the triangle of skin looked awkward. The slit is high and will expose your thighs when you sit. This dress was just okay on me. It felt like a pretty safe and slightly boring choice for a formal affair.

I felt so elegant in this gorgeous dress! Just enough sexy. I will say that at times I felt uncomfortable with the middle opening (when I sat down mostly). But it photographed beautifully and am so glad I took the chance on this one!

Great dress! Work on a 98 degree day and the slit and cut out in front helped keep it cool!
I am 5'6 and wore three inch heels and the length was perfect! Order a size up as your back up size. There's a slight hem in the back that a stiletto heel catches if you aren't careful. The dress was beautiful, I got so many compliments!

This dress runs small so I would order a size larger for back up. It has thick material so no need to wear a bra. I'm tall and the dress did not go all the way to the ground even when I took my heels off. I would rent again!

PROS: dress fit perfectly and was one of a kind. I was extremely happy with the quality and the fit. It fits true to size. I could breathe in it even after eating and dance all night in the dress. CONS: there aren't any.

Sexy yet Classy
I absolutely loved this dress. The material was pretty sturdy, but had a slight stretch to it. Perfect for a formal event, but still a little sexy in all the right ways. The slight stretch made it suitable for dancing. I had no problem with fit. I ordered a long size and the length was perfect for my height. I would definitely recommend ordering the long size if you are above 5'6". I normally am between a 2 and 4 in dresses and the 4 fit just fine.

First time renter - PLEASED!
I was nervous at first bc the backup size was the same as the size i ordered so if it didnt fit i would have no options! BUT IT DID! I got so many compliments on this dress and even had a friend order for a wedding a few weeks later! It fit like a glove. I am short, but there have been times the petite fits me oddly but this worked PERFECT with 3" heels. (112 lbs // 5'1"). Loved not spending an arm and a leg on a gown i would only wear once. Will definitely use again!

I really loved the silhouette of this dress, and I received so many compliments!
I wore this dress for a black tie optional wedding in Florida. The bust area is pretty tight, which made me size up. Also, there was a part of the corsetting that was broken, so it kept stabbing me during the night (reason for 4 stars). I wore 4" heels and the length was great, maybe just a smidge too long for my 5"1.5" frame. Overall, I loved the dress.

I got a lot of compliments on this dress and I was really comfortable all night!
It runs a little small on the bust. I'm normally a size 4 and that fit a little tight so I opted for the 6 since I would be in it all night. I'm 5'7 and wearing the long was definitely the right decision.

Not for busty women.
This is a beautiful dress but the chest has no give. I called a stylist before to make sure it was alright for busty women, and was told that it is, but I beg to differ. I would say this is best for a C or below. If you're over a C, pick something else.

Amazing dress
This dress was amazing and everything I imagined for my prom. I usually wear a 4 or a 6 but the 6R seemed a big tight around the upper back and shoulder area. It's super slimming and the hole doesn't make stomach fat bulge out as much as you would think. Would definitely recommend renting for a formal event! The slit is beautiful just the right amount of classy yet sexy.

The fit was perfect and RTR customer service was very helpful. Wore this to my senior prom and got so many compliments- perfect for someone who wants something simple yet elegant. Liked it better strapless so I tucked the strap in and it looked completely normal.

Flattering, comfortable dress. I can see why it may be tighter on bigger busts but I do not have that problem. I am between a size 8 and 10, but the 8 fit perfect on this one. Perfect length with my heels.

Perfect Long Black Dress
Simply amazing. This dress was comfortable and fun to dance in. Received many compliments! I had never ordered from rtr so I wasn't sure about sizing. I ordered the 2P and 4P and ended wear the 4P and it fit perfectly. I wore 4inch heels and it barely touched the ground. I would totally order this dress again!

I was comfortable in my dress! That is a huge bonus at a wedding!
This dress fit me how I wanted to, but some may find it to be a bit snug. I did wear control top hose to smooth things out. Careful with what you choose as one pair made my skin showing in the cut-out unflattering. With a high heel, the length was perfect. Great dress!
