Amazing dress!
This was my second time wearing this dress, and I still love it! It's incredibly flattering, the back is gorgeous, and the slits are sexy and make it surprisingly easy to dance in.

Beautiful color, gorgeous back
Very pretty dress! It's def a curve hugger. I was looking for a dress that would flaunt the curves that I had without making me look chunky, since I'm still losing baby weight. I have a larger bust since I'm nursing, and the boobs fit great. No bra needed. I ordered the 6L and the 8L. Both fit pretty similarly, but went with the 8 since it had more room in the bust. This dress is pretty stretchy, but not too forgiving. I went back and forth between wanting to order the regular or long sizes and I am SO glad I ordered the long. I'm 5'5", but wore heels so high I was as tall as my 5'11" husband. The 6 had maybe and inch that was off the ground but the 8 was perfect. The slit was not too high, but like others said it rides up when you sit down. SPANX WERE A MUST! The lace is nude backed, but it's a mesh so you can still see some skin. But you couldn't see my spanks. ;) I wished that I had ordered a more flowy dress just for my own self esteem issues, but this was a hit and my husband loved it.

So comfortable and elegant!
This dress fit a glove. My boyfriend couldn't stop saying how much he loved it. It's a gorgeous blue color. The back panel was a beige fabric so I could still wear a normal bra. I am 4'11 and wore 3 inch heels and the dress just barely hit the floor. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Gorgeous dress and so classy.
Great fit for hourglass body type and a larger chest. The slits weren't too high on me because I'm 5'3, but I would've felt inappropriate if I was taller for sure.

Loved the way the dress made me feel
The dress fit perfectly, I didn't even try on the backup size. There was small textured detail to the dress so it was fine without a bra. Loved the back detail and slits! Sexy and sophisticated

Perfect dress to make you stand out and feel confident!
I absolutely loved this dress. I rented it for a black tie event awards ceremony in Las Vegas. I knew I wanted something sexy but simple that I could easily dress up with jewelry. The lace back was lovely because it had a nude mesh underneath the lace that made it possible to wear spanx. I'm fairly tall (5'9) and the 10L was the prefect length wearing 3in heels. I know some girls commented that the slits were a little uncomfortable and revealing while sitting down but I didn't have an issue at all. The dress fits true to size and the fabric stretches so it was super comfortable to wear all night. I didn't want to take it off! Shipping was on time and came exactly as promised. It was also very easy to return even though I was out of town. I will definitely be using Rent The Runway again for all formal events!

Gorgeous color and eye-catching back!
Even though I'm quite short, the 2L worked just fine with some tall heels! The fabric is thicker than you might think but it hides minor flaws well. The slits and back accent all the right parts - sexy while still maintaining an appropriate elegance. I wore this for a formal work event and got compliments the whole night! I was comfortable for upwards of 8 hours of walking in the Kentucky heat, sitting, dancing, and eating! It can be a tad tight on the shoulders if you're busty with muscular arms but it's really not bad. Would definitely rent again if everyone hadn't seen me in it!

Stunning unique dress!
Dress was amazing! I wore it to a Black Tie event for my boyfriends work and got so many compliments. The color was stunning and it fit like a glove. It is tight in the chest area for women with a little more up too so be mindful of that. It was also a little too long for the heels I was wearing, not the dresses fault tho but if you are around my height of 5'4" I would suggest at least 4" heels. Overall a stunning dress!

LOVED how flattering the cut was! So many compliments!!
I rented this for my Law School's Barrister's Ball and it was perfect. Fit like a glove and didn't even need a bra! (Which is a small miracle for me!) the material was thick, but stretchy and it just felt like a finely made dress, can't speak highly enough of it! Plus, after I wore it, I saw it on an actress in some political drama, so that was pretty neat! May or may not have yelled "IVE WORN THAT DRESS!!!"

Beautiful dress. Exceeded all expectations.
The dress fit beautifully and was everything I hoped for and more. Length was perfect and I wore 5 inch nude heels. Color of the dress is more of a royal blue. Material was very comfortable and the double slit wasn't too aggressive. The back was my favorite part and the true show stopper. Received compliments all night and even requests to borrow! Highly recommend!!!

RTR customer service is so unbelievably helpful it makes renting so easy!
This dress is so beautiful. It fits true to size and is very flattering. The lace detail in the back makes this dress even more beautiful. The slits were a little hard to get used to but no big deal. I'm 5'7 and the length was perfect with 3 inch heels. Only minor complaint I had with the dress was with the chest area. It was a little snug with a strapless bra but not unbearable. Other than that I would totally recommend this dress. I got compliments all night!

This is the dress that I popped my RTR cherry with. You guys were reliable and easy to use.
BCBG is one of my fav designers and I have dresses all being size 4. This dress has a bit of stretch as well with a more textured fabric. My bum decides the fit of a dress since I've been squatting so I opted to use the second size 6L which allowed me to dance freely. The length was perfect with my sky high pink shoes. I've noticed some girls complaining about the slits... They don't open up a lot and were about mid thigh on me (no shorter than a cocktail dress is normally wear). I guess if you're a bit more conservative then this isn't the dress for you. . I unfortunately was in a humid climate and this fabric doesn't breathe great. The back is beautiful w a FAUX sheer look to it and I got many compliments. I did not wear a bra with it because it was fitted enough for me in that area plus the sleeves are sheer so I didn't want to have to worry about the visible straps. Thanks for popping my RTR cherry!

On time shipping!
This dress was really pretty, and I loved the material. I am a 36D and the 8R was pretty tight, so if I wore this I was going to go with the 10R so I could eat. I am only 4'11" and after multiple attempts to hem it with fashion tape it was not working so I opted for an overnight option to wear. This dress is beautiful, but if you are short just forget about it.

The color!
The dress is navy in person but cobalt when you take a picture with flash...both are beautiful. With 32DD's I didn't have to wear a bra because 1. I dont think a bra would have fit under the dress without looking totally smashed and 2. It was tight enough to keep my girls in place and not look saggy. The color has a nice blurring effect where it smooths out bumbs and pooches in pictures...so i loved it

Tight fit but overall good experience. Very sexy and beautiful dress
It was a very beautiful dress. My size fluctuates between a size 10 & 12. They only had a 10 available for the weekend of the wedding. The fit was very tight but manageable with spanx! I would of preferred a size 12 which would have made all the difference. Overall great experience, dress was still beautiful and very sexy. Cleavage was a little too much for a wedding in my opinion but definitely compliments the female figure.

Loved it! I wore it for my Boyfriend Cousin's Quinceañera I attended!
The dress fit nicely everywhere except it was loose around the bust area. The blue was gorgeous! When I received one of the slits hem was coming undone but I was able to stitched it for it to last through the night. I wore with four inch heels so I wouldn't step on it and it fell nicely. I would wear it again! I loved it and it arrive Friday night and not on my event day. I was super glad it did since I had order it on Thursday evening. This was my first RTR experience and it was great!

I loved the color of this dress and my husband couldn't stop staring at me!
The back is gorgeous, but I'm modest so I wore a nude tank underneath. I also had to wear Spanx bc the dress was a little tight (just had a baby and haven't lost all my baby weight) but the dress was perfect with my own little adjustments. The length was perfect with 3.5 inch heels. Overall I would rent this again!

Very nice
I went to the flatiron store to get fitted for a black tie wedding I was going to and picked this dress during my visit. It was stunning and fit perfectly in the store. When I received the dress the day before the event it was one size too big. I'm not sure if the wrong size was ordered or if this dress had been stretched out, either way I was disappointed. It turned out alright and still looked ok but definitely upsetting knowing I could have looked better.

Great fit, awesome color!
I wore this gown to a charity gala. The color is a brighter blue than it appears in the stock photo on the model. I chose the 4P versus the 2P so that I would have a little more room for food. :) I wore an adhesive bra so that the beautiful lace back wouldn't be impacted, but honestly could have gone without as the fit is snug and the fabric is thick enough for it to work well either way. The hen barely grazed the floor with 3" heels. I was very comfortable while dancing, it was the perfect choice.

Beautiful color and detail
I definitely recommend this dress for busty girls. I'm small everywhere else but wear a 32F bra and this dress fit great in the chest area (probably because of the lower cut and lace back) but it was sooooo long. I'm 5'4 and wore 4" heels and it still dragged. I had to purchase hem tape to shorten it about 3"+.

Beautiful dress!! Only thing is I highly recommend going with a petite size of you are around 5 feet. There was not a petite size available in my size. It fit great and slimmed my body while hugging my curves! The back is my favorite part! So pretty! #wedding

I was hesitant about the size, since I have a baby bump. This is my second child, thus I'm showing early. I used my extra dress. It's just one size up from my regular size 6. It had just enough stretch to fit perfectly and showcase my belly. My earrings and bracelet were from RTR as well! They went perfectly with the dress! Everything was great! Thanks RTR

This dress fit well, giving me room in the stomach area. I did wear a bra with it, a backless one that had adhesives on the side. The slits may be a bit high for some people, but I felt it still looked classy enough for a formal event. I got lots of compliments, including another female who told me my butt looked great in it! Would definitely recommend it. It was comfortable too!

Fit perfectly!!
Absolutely beautiful. I ordered the 10R and the 8R. The 10 fit great. I am super hippy - like very pear shaped- 8/10 in jeans!! I was a little concerned that the dress was going to be too loose in the top and tight in the bottom, but it fit great. If I had pasties I probably would have worn then since it was a cold night but the dress is lined so it wasn't bad. Would highly recommend this dress!! I wore 3 inch heals and it just barely skimmed the floor. All in all, great fit.

I really liked the color of the dress. I couldn't manage to get a picture to do it justice. I really needed the long since it was a bit shorter than I would have liked, but it was not available. I did get a lot of compliments on it.

Got lots of compliments. The back and high slit legs make the dress!
I am 5'4", 135 lbs and typically wear a 4 and had to go with the 6 which fit like a glove. Opted to go braless rather than wear the Nubra I ordered because the dress was cut lower than the bra. The lace back detail is stunning though watch for little frayed threads. My first time renting and it was a great experience!
