I received compliments all night, thank you rent the runway!

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I usually wear a size 8 but this dress was very snug on top so I wore the second size I ordered which was a 10. The dress looks stunning but the material does not stretch at all so be aware of that. Would definitely recommend ordering it a size up from your original size. I also ordered the long size which was perfect with my 3-inch heels. I rented this dress to wear to my friends prom and I wish I had done the same for my prom! The dress was delivered the day they said and both dresses were in great condition. Will definitely rent from rent the runway again!

This dress is an eye catcher and it's a very comfortable dress. I did wear a size up from my normal size as I have a big bust 32D. Received compliments on how interesting the dress it. I felt sexy without it being too much. Overall a great dress and a great experience. My first of many RTR rentals.

I got so many compliments wearing the dress! The dress runs true to size and is comfortable. However, it runs a little tight in the chest. Defiantly recommend renting this one!

I have always loved BCBG so I knew I would love this dress since it looked good on everyone's review

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was perfect. I wear a 36 triple D so I have dress the girls first and this dress was a great fit. Tight in the chest mostly because I am smaller on the bottom, bigger up top. I loved the split and cutout, the right amount of sexy and sophisticated! I received a ton of compliments and many were men ;-) overall wonderful first rental from RTR. Only one con, my heels kept getting caught on the inside bottom hem. Not a big deal but a little irritating when walking. Also I am 5'5 and the regular worked great with 3 inch plus heels

Perfect sexy dress for a formal affair!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was absolutely amazing. It was beautiful and the small cutout made it the perfect amount of sexy without being over the top for a formal affair. I would highly recommend for anyone with an hourglass figure as it synchs perfectly at the waist. BCBG typically runs small in the bust. So as a 34DD I was a bit worried, but the 6 fit perfectly. I am generally between a 4-6 depending on how the top of the dress fits. If you are questioning the dress stop right now because it was gorgeous and you will feel gorgeous in it!

Best dress I have ever worn!

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I love this dress and was so sad to send it back! I wore it to my sorority's casino/James Bond themed formal and it was absolutely perfect. I got the most compliments I've ever gotten! This dress hit all the right places and made me look super skinny. I would definitely recommend going for the long version if you're already tall and wearing heels. The cutout initially worried me but it was very flattering and gave the dress a little something extra. It was super easy to move and dance in and I would definitely recommend it!

Fits like a glove!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Pros: highlighted my waist and arms. My husband said it was a "home run" and very sexy! Cons: High slit made sitting and getting in and out of car a bit tricky but manageable. There was an underlay on the dress around the hips and waist which frequently rode up but minor detail considering how great the dress felt!

i received so many compliments on this dress. Shows some skin but not too much, perfect for a black tie/formal wedding or event. The best part is the length because i am 5"4 and it wasnt too long it came right above the floor with 3 inch heels. Highly recommend!

Killer Dress

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is a knockout. I wore it to a black tie wedding and received compliments all night. It's formal enough for black tie but the one shoulder, cut out and front slit give it some edge. I am usually a 0 in BCBG but I got the 2 based on other reviews and it fit perfectly. The chest would have been too tight in a 0. My only complaint is that the bottom hem was loose and my heel kept getting caught in it all night.

I loved it! The size 2 fit perfectly. Though I am pretty short so I had to wear 4in. Also the slit was pretty large, so when I walked it kinda looked like high low dress. But overall the dress was super comfortable and gorgeous.

Got so many compliments! This rental didn't work for my daughter who ordered this as her first choice. She went with another dress and I got lucky to wear this one to a Gala we were all attending in New York City (mid-November). At first I wasn't sure about the cut-out, but it was tasteful and really made me feel edgy at this event. I highly recommend renting this dress as I felt so cool and sophisticated, but definitely not too showy or uncomfortable. I added my own jewelry and went for strappy shoes to complete the look I wanted.

I wore this dress for my 25th High School Class Reunion Ball. I was concerned about the length of the dress because of my height, but with the perfect 4 inch heel, it was spot on. No alterations needed. It's definitely a true fit. My date was so proud to be with me. I especially appreciated the free additional size just in case. Renting is the way to go especially if you're like me and don't want to wear the same formal twice. I loved this dress and I love RTR!!!

Very cool dress- not the most comfortable.

Size worn: 4R
Rented for: Party
I love this dress. it's really a cool dress- it's different and the material is great and feels expensive... but it's not the most comfortable. it ran small, (RtR Flatiron location only had a size 4, which is my normal size) and it went on fine but the hole in the front felt weird when I sat down and the bodice was tight. The 6 might have been better, but since I didn't have that option I didn't end up wearing this dress.

If you want the spotlight on you this is the dress!

Size worn: 8L
Rented for: Formal Affair
I absolutely loved the look of this dress and received many compliments:) from reviews I read, people mentioned to get a size up because it runs a little small. I ordered an 8L and a 10 L. The 8 L was a little tight around the hips but not noticeable at all and fit better so I decided to wear that one instead, where the 10 L Was a little too big and not as flattering. I am 5'7 so without heels this dress was too long but with heels it was a perfect length! I absolutely recommend it and make sure you grab a bigger size as your second choice in case !

Size worn: 6L
Rented for: Party
I fell in love with this dress instantly after searching RTR. I originally ordered my regular size of a 4R. The dress fit, but it was super tight and didn't make me feel sexy at all. I exchanged it for a 6; however due to it being last minute before New Years, RTR only had a 6 Long. When I received the new size, it fit beautifully and was super long, but it worked fine with my five inch heels. Had a great night and received many compliments!!

This was probably my favorite dress I've ever rented from here. It was super elegant and sexy! I felt like someone out of a James Bond movie. The only small issue was it was about 1/2" too long, so I sometimes stepped on it while dancing.

Love this dress!! I rented it in a 2R and a 4R, and ended up going with the 4R. If fit perfectly and has an adjustable strap under the shoulder, which was a great feature. If you're short (like me), 3-4 inch heels will be the perfect height. I received compliments all night long, and would definitely rent this dress again!

Everyone absolutely loved the dress! I received a plethora of compliments, and felt glamorous!

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered an 8L and 10L after reading that it runs a bit small. Usually, I wear dresses size 6 or 8. However, the 8L was a little too big, and gathered around the bust and waist - so a 6L would have been preferred. Nonetheless, the dress fits super well, is incredibly comfortable, and allows a lot of movement for dancing! You will love it! If it ends up a little big, use some fashion tape to hold the strap up. I promise, you won't regret this one!

Size worn: 8L
Rented for: Formal Affair
After reading a lot of the reviews I'm really glad I ordered a size up for my extra dress because for girls who are larger up top you definitely need the bigger size! I am normally a 6 but I couldn't come close to zipping it up over my chest (I am a 34D). The 8 fit perfectly and was a lot more comfortable. The cut out and subtle slit add some sassiness and sexiness to a very simple black dress. I received compliments on it all night and I felt like 1 million bucks! I'm sad to send this dress back, wish I could keep it!
