I stood out in a big wedding, yet felt comfortable and appropriate for work wedding.
This was my back up dresss but it turned out lovely. I though the slits would be too much but they just added a little spice to a pretty dress. I loved the color which stood out in a sea of black gowns. I am usually an 8 but the 8 was just a touch too tight for me to be comfortable. And the 10 was a little big in the bust but I used the sticky bra and it worked great. I paired the dress with champagne colors shoes and bag.

Gorgeous black-tie beach wedding, lovely lace details
I mostly loved this dress, but I did not anticipate how high the slits would be and didn't realize that there were two! I ordered this dress as a replacement from the airport on my way to a destination wedding. The color was nice and I liked having a structured top with the lace cap sleeves. The back is lined, not see-through, which was also nice although i didn't need to wear a bra with the dress, i could have., and I was able to wear waist-high shapewear without worrying. The slits, however, had me pulling at the dress all night! When seated, it was difficult to avoid a loin-cloth look no matter how primly I crossed my ankles.

Loved it!
At 5'10" it's hard to find a dress that is the perfect length, this one fit the ticket! Even the slits in the dress were in the right spot and very tasteful. Loved the lace details on the sleeves and in the back. Would recommend this and would definitely rent again!

Easy to dance & maneuver. Tons of compliments!
I needed a royal blue dress for the wedding, & it's a really rich color. I wore a 6R (I'm 5'6'', 141lbs) with 3 inch heels, which was fine. Fits like a glove, so not a great option if you're busty. Easy to chase a toddler in too! Received compliments all night long. The lace back was beautiful.

RENT THIS DRESS! Esp. flattering for hourglass figures.
I have been looking at this dress for forever, but was hesitant to rent it since I am big-busted with a short waist and carry a little extra weight in my stomach, so the tight style / non-adjustable straps made me nervous. About a thousand spin classes finally made me confident enough to rent it for a gala, and now it is probably my favorite rental EVER. The color, thigh-high slits, and back of the dress are stunning, and I got so many compliments all night! It's definitely tight, but cut in a flattering way if you're self conscious about your stomach. I think it runs TTS, but order a size bigger if you're nervous. I'm also big busted (34E) and found that the fabric was thick and tight enough / the lined back gave me enough support that I was confident to go totally braless (which is rare). I think this dress could be harder for smaller-busted girls as it was definitely right for me. As an added bonus, it is SO comfortable, even with a sit-down dinner, and I felt stunning. If you're on the fence, go for it! I'll be renting this one again.

Loved the dress - Super flattering!
I rented this dress for a formal gala event. Usually I wear somewhere between a 2 and a 4 but the 4 was unavailable. I wore the 2L and it was a little tight in the chest, but my backup size (6L) was too big to wear. I received a lot of complements and really stood out in the midst of mostly black dresses. I loved it!

Beautiful Color
Wore this to a wedding in January. Was a beautiful dress that fit nicely and snugly over your curves. Didn't have to wear a bra and was super fun and classy. I'm only 5'2 so had to wear really large heel so dress wouldn't drag on the ground.

Absolutely perfect for a wedding between winter and spring
Fit really good. I am 5'6 and wore 5" heels, so the 6L was perfect. The fabric is tight enough and loose enough to wear a bra and still be very comfortable. The only con was that the lace sleeves seemed a little worn, but besides that felt great!

Loved this dress!
This dress was stunning, I didn't want to send it back. My date loved it as well, the double slits are not for the faint of heart but the dress is very comfortable and supportive even without a bra. It is tightly fitted so I went with the 6 because of my hips and chest. I am fairly short at 5'4" and with 3 inch heels the regular length was perfect. I would definitely rent this again.

Step outside your comfort zone of traditional black.
This dress was stunning. The photos online do not do it justice. The fit is perfect. Received a ton of compliments. If you are in the mood to try something different - go with this dress. It is as blue as blue gets and so vibrant.

Love everything about the dress. Thankful for the extra size. Originally got size 8 which would of fit, but needed a larger size to accommodate bust size. Would recommend a size up for fuller bust. I'm a 34 DDD.

So many compliments!
This dress was actually my second choice for this event but I'm so glad I wore it! The color is a little darker than the website portrays but it is beautiful none the less. I am 5'5", about 130lbs (guessing) and I'm glad I chose Long instead of the regular length. If you plan on wearing heels go for the extra length. I wore 3 inch heels. It touched the floor but added to the elegance of the dress.

Elegant, Simple and Fit like a glove!
Rented this for a black-tie Christmas party. The 2R fit like a glove...elegant, classy and very comfortable. The material is very stretch and molds to your curves (I would definitely recommend spanx). The square neck and beautiful sheer lace back looked beautiful and the color is more of a bright-navy blue than the pictures. The slits are high, but not indecent and really can't be seen unless you walk very fast. On the whole, I loved this dress - the fit was amazing and I would definitely rent again Cons: The dress is showing it's age - the lace around the neck and sleeves was fraying and there was minor pilling around the waist. Nothing noticeable unless you are taking close-up pictures. The bust is quite snug and you may want to size up if bigger than a B cup.

I would absolutely wear this dress again. It's form fitting, but the lace adds a bit of elegance to it. I really enjoyed wearing this dress, and got TONS of compliments throughout the night. I highly recommend this dress!

Beautiful dress but not for curves
I rented this dress based on the positive reviews from women similar to me. I ordered an 8R and 10R which are the usual sizes that work for my body, but certainly did not with this particular dress. There is absolutely NO STRETCH to the fabric whatsoever! It was entirely too tight in the bust and hips with too much extra fabric in the midsection. It's a beautiful dress, but curvy girls should rent with caution and definitely size up!

I did not wear as it was a little too tight for me.
Dress is pretty. Fabric is heavy and there's no real stretch. I would suggest you get a stretchy backup dress just in case. I am bottom heavy so that is where it was tight fitting for me. I would have been uncomfortable all night. However, if you have a slender body I sure this would be gorgeous on you.

Red Carpet Look
The second I put this dress on it fit like a glove. It was a nice heavy material and perfect for a fall wedding. The side slits were just the right amount of sexy but classy. The entire outfit felt stunning and I said to myself that if I were ever to walk a red carpet this would be the dress I would want to be in. I tried to do a pic stitch to showcase the back of the dress as well but the image didn't look right when I went to upload it. Secret about this is even though it looks sheer there is a back nude panel covering it so you can go ahead and wear a regular bra. Got so many compliments all night. Best rental yet!

Beautiful Blue Dress Catches Compliments
This is my 1st RTR experience and I am very pleased. I wore this to a semi formal wedding. The blue color stands out and draws the right amount of attention (without taking focus of the bride, of course). I received compliments from men & women of how great it looked. "I just wanted to say I love your dress. You look amazing!" Other reviews claim this dress runs small so I was concerned as some size 10 dresses I had tried on at stores fit a little tight. However, I came to find that this dress fit like a glove. I could sit & dance in it very comfortably. I didn't have to wear a bra as the dress had enough support on its own. Runs really long. I wore 5in heels (in pic) and it made the dress the perfect length. Eventually I changed into comfy wedges and although the dress dragged just a hair, the look was still complete. I was concerned about the slits showing too much but it stays modest while showing off the sexy. Again, I'm so happy with this dress but some heads up: shorties will need tall heels or temporary hems and imperfections (pooch bellies, rolls, cellulite) may show so you may want to consider spanks. Other than that, prepare to own the event with this piece!!

Elegant dress!
I liked this dress but didn't love it. I rented a 2 and 4 and decided to go with the 2 for a form fitted look. No Spanx was needed! My major grip with this dress was the two slits in the front. They were awkwardly flowing for me while walking. I did get compliments but I wouldn't rent this again.

Great dress!
This dress was beautiful and comfortable. I could have worn the 6 regular but it was a bit too short with my shoes. The 8 regular fit nicely as well and was the perfect length but I needed a backless bra with it. The 6 would have been tight enough on top to wear without a bra. I wear a 32DDD and I felt like this dress was great because of the straight across neckline instead of a deep v. Great experience with rent the runway!

Great color, nice fit
I ended up choosing another dress from my shipment to wear to a formal wedding, but I liked this one a lot too. The back detail was amazing. The fabric isn't very forgiving so it would show imperfections, but nothing that spanx couldn't fix. The only thing I didn't love was the edge of the lace. It looked a little frayed... Not damaged, just a strange edge that I thought took away from the overall class level of the dress.

Thighs the limit!
The fit was great, very snug in all the right places! The color was brighter than I thought, but, it was for a copa cabana themed black tie so it was perfect that it was brighter! The only downside and why I give it 4 stars, the zipper under your armpit it very visible and I caught it in one picture. Other than that, the slits were sexy and fun. Again, another dress that received tons of compliments all night and was great to dance in!
