This dress was amazing, fit perfectly!
I heard reviews that the dress looked "worn" but figuring it was black and black dresses are more forgiving I rented it anyway. Looking at the inside lining of the dress you could tell it had been worn a few times but that was the extend of the "worn" look, to me it seemed good as new. It fit amazing, hugged and forgave in all the right places, I wish I owned it!

Great Event, wish the dress ran more true to size!
The dress runs smaller than most BCBG dresses! I am always a size 6 at BCBG and this 8 was even tight around the bust area. I decide to put the strap down because it fit better for me that way. I liked the dress but I didn't love it. I would definitely suggest going up a size or two!

fit perfectly! so many compliments.
Whenever I rent a dress I am always nervous about the length (I'm only 5'2) and if it will fit my boobs (I am 36DD). This dress fit me perfectly! I wore 4'' heels and the dress was the perfect length. It also fit my chest perfectly and I did not need to wear a bra. After some dancing though, I was having to tug at the side without the strap to keep it up. My ONLY complaint about this dress is that the zipper was very difficult to get up and down. And not because the dress was too tight, I had more than enough material... it was as if the zipper was just worn down from usage and would get stuck in certain areas. I was nervous pulling at it that it would break and I would be SOL. Highly recommend this dress!!!

Pretty dress but runs small
The dress was lovely but was rather small for my fit. I'm 5'0 and 120lbs with a 26 waste and 34 bust. I ordered the 2p and 4p thinking I might be in between based on the reviews but the 4 was very small. Squeezed into it for the event but would have been a bit more comfortable with a 6, especially in the bust and rib area. Beautiful dress though.

Classy and Beautiful
I wore this dress to a fraternity formal at the beach. I am on the short side at 5'3", but with 4" heels, the length was absolutely perfect. The cutout on the tummy area and the leg slit gave the dress enough sexiness, but it was very classy as these areas were not too revealing. I am almost completely flat chested and the dress was still VERY tight on me, so fuller chested girls beware. I received tons of compliments. Definitely recommend!

Classy with a hint of sexy
The 6R fit like a glove. I normally wear a 4R but read the reviews stating that the bust fit tight, I'm a 36B, 128lbs and 5'4. The length was perfect, I wore 4 inch heels. I would rent this dress again.

Perfect Dress. Perfect Price.
Usually, I am never anything but a 4 in dresses but I saw that this ran small so I ordered the 6L because I am tall. It fit like a glove. I am 5'9 and wore 3.5 inch heels and the dress looked perfect. It was such a flattering fit and the slit in the front made it easy to walk in and give a nice sexy look. This was my first RTR rental and I am so impressed I will for sure be back for future rentals. Love this dress.

I loved the dress! I received complements all night long. It made me feel beautiful.
It fit very well, the only thing was the bust area. The bust is tight, but once its on you can't even tell. The material is thicker than expected, but I liked it. I am 5'4" and I wore heels and the 12R was a perfect fit. I will definitely use RTR again!

I wore this to prom and got sooo many compliments on it! Very simple and elegant!
It fit very well, was a tad long even when I wore 4 inch heels. That being said, I'm only 5'3" but I have to wear a larger (thus longer) size because I'm super busty (34DD) and I have a very athletic shape (I like to call myself "moderately thick" lol). The one strap over the shoulder was supportive and classy, and the triangle cutout was not too large and in the perfect area! Overall, I would recommend this dress to anyone, you can't go wrong no matter what size/shape you are!

This dress does not disappoint !!
The dress was perfect! Before I picked my size I read all of the reviews and thank goodness I did ! I usually wear a 4 in dresses but since everyone said that this dress does not stretch and it runs rather small, I ordered a size up. I ordered a 6L & 8L and the 6L was perfect, it fit like a glove. I'm 5'4 and 120lbs..I have a size 34D chest and I didn't need to wear a bra because the dress had wiring in it and a supportive bodice up top. I wore 4.5 inch heels another dress just touched the floor. This dress DOES NOT disappoint :) so many compliments !!

So many compliments on this dress worn to my senior prom! Highly recommend
The dress fit me perfectly. I had an easy time moving around, it was not constricting. I definitely recommend this dress. The company is super quick in responding to any questions & very kind and helpful. I was very impressed.

I think it was true to size but it is a tight fitting dress, very elegant
I wore this to a gala and I got lots of compliments. It is very elegant but not too overwhelming (I like to be a little bit understated to this dress was a stretch for me style wise). I'm 5'9" and wore heels and the long was almost not long enough. I did not wear a bra and felt comfortable with that, dress is a tight fit. Overall was very happy.

Loved it! Didn't want to return it.
I am usually a 2, sometimes a 4. Wore the 2R and it fit great. I may have been more comfortable in the 4R since the chest was a little tight, but that backup size was unavailable. I am 5 5' and wore this with 3 inch heels. The length was perfect.

Felt great all night!
This dress is sexy and elegant all in one. I received lots of compliments on it. It does run small so order a size up. I was worried about where the cut out fell but it sits at a good spot so need to worry about sitting in the dress. The dress is snug at the top and offers a nice fit around the hips. I would definitely recommend this dress! I felt great in it all night!

the dress was gorgeous and was my favorite part of the night
I received so many compliments about this dress all night long. I wore it on a casino boat and the slit made it so easy to walk in. The cut-out is very forgiving even after a few drinks and dinner. I typically wear a 4 and that was the size dress I wore. I am 5'8 and wore 3.5 inch heels and the long was still slightly short. I couldn't have asked for a better dress to feel confident, sexy, and classy all at the same time. the fabric was great quality and very flattering

Sorority spring formal
I chose to wear the 8L over the 10L because I wanted it tighter around the chest. After wearing it for the entire night it was pretty tight it was still comfortable enough to wear the entire night. The rest of the dress was comfortable and the slit made the dress easy to move around in and dance the entire night. I was also worried about the cutout not looking good but it's in a very flattering place

Fit perfectly, but order a size up!
Loved this dress! Wore it to a black tie optional wedding and I wasn't over or under-dressed. The material is thicker and forgiving below the rib cage, so no spanx necessary! Definitely size up though-I usually wear between a 2 or 4 and the band around the rib cage was very constricting and tight, so much so that I sized up to a 6R. I'm short (5'2") and was a little worried about the length but 4 inch heels did the trick and the dress just barely grazed the floor. Loved the slit in the front and the cut out detail--make sure to wear some knock out shoes! Overall, was very comfortable for a night of dancing and I would definitely rent this dress again.

This dress fit like a glove!
I saw this dress on RTR and instantly fell in love. Since I'm 5"0", 100lbs and a 32a, I was hesitant about the fit originally but after reading the reviews for people the same height/weight as me I felt better. I saw someone else who tucked away the strap to make it strapless, and I wound up doing the same thing. I really loved it like this and you couldn't tell whatsoever that a strap was tucked in (I secured it down with fashion tape in the front and back). With my 4" heels it was still a teeny bit long, but I was able to walk and dance without worrying too much. I really only held it up going up/down stairs. If you're considering getting this dress, DO IT! You won't regret it.

Your review sealed the deal for me! I've been looking for a dress, but I've always been so worried about each dress's fit because of my size: I'm also a 32A, 5'0" girl. But after reading your review, I feel more confident about reserving this dress! Thanks so much!! :)

This was the first time I used RTR and absolutely loved it!
I was really scared about ordering the size 2 in this dress since the 4 was not available and all of the reviews mentioned to get a size up, but decided to take the chance and went with the size 2. It was fitted around the waist and bust, but not extremely tight. It fit me perfectly! I wore heels that were about 3 inches and I'm 5'4 so if you're taller than that then I suggest ordering a large. If you're debating whether to get this dress or not, GET it! I felt glamorous the entire night!

Not long enough - even in L sizing
I wanted to love this dress. In fact, this is the first dress from RTR that I have ever just not worn. The bodice fit was fantastic, and it felt great - until I looked down at my feet. I ordered both the 6L and the 8L to size up based on other reviews and neither even touched the floor! I'm tall (5' 8"), but not so tall that I would expect a long to not even touch the floor. I was positive there was no way these could be long sizes, so RTR overnighted me another 8L. It did have an extra inch - enough that I could pull off a pair of kitten heels, if needed. But who wants to wear kitten heels? ;-) With the slit, this dress is made to show off a pair of your fabulous heels. I ended up wearing another dress option I had overnighted for the black tie wedding.

Perfect dress for prom when you hate the typical gaudy, cliché prom dresses everyone else wears.
I ordered a 8R (my size) and a 10R, the 8R was a little too tight, but the 10R was almost a perfect fit besides the loose shoulder strap (which can be tightened, but looks odd when completed tightened). If you have a muffin top you may want to wear something to smooth it out, but you can get a way without the uncomfortable Spanx. The dress was elegant and I got numerous compliments on it!

Beautiful, classy, but sexy dress for a black tie wedding
Dress runs small. I usually wear a 4, but ordered the 6 and 8 based on reviews. The 6 fit, but was a little tight, the 8 fit perfectly and was more comfortable. I wear a 34DDD and the top fit great, not tight at all, so not sure how it would be on someone smaller chested. I was worried about the hip/stomach area being too tight, but I found the dress to be very flattering (and I'm not in the best shape right now). Even the cutout was at the most flattering part of my midsection. I'm 5'6 and wore 4 inch heels and the length on the 8R was perfect. I would rent this again it was so comfortable and flattering. I wore silver sparkly jewelry to dress it up even more since it was a black tie wedding. Very classy and just sexy enough, without being too revealing. Only downside was another girl at the wedding had on the same dress, that she also rented from RTR. Not a big deal, but we joked that would be nice if you could specify your event somehow to prevent that. I saw a few other RTR dresses I had considered at the wedding too, but I guess that's just the risk you run.

Love the shape!
I generally wear 0-2 for dresses, but the 0R wouldn't zip up, so I had to go with the 2P. The length was perfect (a tiny bit above the floor with my 3 inch heels. It was so comfortable to walk around and dance in it. The material is pretty thick so there was no need to wear a strapless bra or nubra (I tried putting on nubra just in case, but the overall fit wasn't as nice with it). The hole around the stomach area is of perfect size and location as well - I didn't feel self-conscious about it at all although I'm not particularly toned. Highly recommended for any formal occasion!

I received so many compliments!
The reviews are right- order your regular size and a size up. The dress is very comfortable and easy to wear. I would definitely rent it again (and was quite sad to send it back)! I ended up wearing the larger size because the 8r was just a little too snug in the bust.
