Perfect for a black tie wedding!
I felt so great in this dress! It was flattering and the cut-out was tasteful - I got so many complements! ..And still do when people see the pictures. I worried about wearing a long dress because I'm only 5'1 - I would definitely suggest wearing heels if you are petite - it hit the floor but it was a good length with heels. I would absolutely recommend this dress!

This dress was absolutely stunning! It was the perfect combination of elegant and sexy!
I contemplated renting this dress for a black tie wedding for months. I was on the site weekly reading the reviews over and over (for this dress only) and contemplating if I wanted to run the risk of renting the dress and having it not fit. I was a swimmer my whole life and I have a very wide/muscular build making dress shopping very difficult. My bra size is a 36D and I was reading previous reviews that this dress ran small in the chest. I decided to take the leap of faith and I rented the dress praying that it fit. I did the 8 day rental to make sure I'd have enough time to find something else for my worst case scenario. I ordered the 8L and the 10L due to the reviews stating it ran a size smaller and it being tight in the chest area. I normally am a medium at BCBG which transfers over to a 4 or a 6. This dress has absolutely no stretch to it so keep that in mind when choosing your size for this dress. I definitely recommend going up a size or two if you are a wide, curvy, or busty woman. I was unable to wear a bra with this dress but I had enough support in the chest area. I am almost 5'9" and the long was the perfect length with heels. When the heels are off it drags the floor but a regular would likely be too short if you are 5'8" and up. I was complimented the entire night and days to follow after renting this dress! I was so sad I had to return it but would for sure rent it again! If it were not for the awesome reviews, I never would have had the courage to rent this beautiful gown!

The perfect touch of elegance!
Perfect for a wedding, black tie affair or masquerade! Tons of compliments, enhances your body shape in an elegant way! I know other reviews read that it fits small, but I actually think it runs true to size but the fit and style dress itself is supposed to be snug to your body. I am usually a 4 and if it was a friends event I would've worn the 4 but since it was a family event I went with the 6. Definitely order your usual size and one size up as a back up. The chest area is snug but in a good way, no bra needed (although I did use a strapless with no padding and it fit perfect as well); from the waist down it falls nicely around ur legs not too tight but shows your shape in the right way. Keep in mind I'm 5'4, 140 pounds and 34b. The dress fell an inch above the ground in 3 1/2 inch heels.

Classic black dress for a summer wedding
This dress ran small. I am always a size 4 in bcbg dresses. I think because of the boning in the dress it fit smaller than normal. The material was also very thick so it would not have been good for a summer wedding. Pretty dress otherwise, maybe better for a fall/winter event.

LOVED THIS DRESS!
I rented this dress for an evening wedding at a country club. I ordered a 6L but ended up wearing the 8L to get a little more room at the bust. I am a 34DD/140 lbs and the 6L was a bit tight up top but fit everywhere else perfectly. I'm 5'7 and the 8L got caught a bit on my heels (I wore 3.5'') but it didn't bother me too much. The sizes were not that different. I thought the material was going to be hot but it really wasn't. Overall the dress was amazing - I felt beautiful, it was easy to dance in and I got SO many compliments on it!

Loved everything about this dress
I don't have a single complaint about this dress, which I wore to a black tie wedding. It was comfortable, easy to dance in and fit like a glove. I was debating ordering the 4L based on reviews because I am 5'6", but I am very glad that I stuck with the 4R. I wore 3.5" heels and the dress was about an inch off of the ground, which I think looked perfect for this type of silhouette. Bra was not needed which was a plus. I paired the dress with the Kendra Scott Lace Agate Perla earrings.

I loved this dress! Great for any formal event. Got compliments all night.
The fit ran a bit small. I ended up wearing the 4R even though I normally wear a 2. I could have worn the 2R but I would have been uncomfortable all night. The cutout and slit are very flattering! When ordering this dress I would order one in your true size and one a size larger. The bust area is especially tight.

I am 5'11" and ordered the long and wore flat sandals. If you're over 5'11" the long won't be long enough. I have a small bust and it fit perfectly. It was perfect for the black tie wedding we attended.

Very flattering and elegant!
The reviews are spot on that you definitely want to make sure you rent a size up from your normal size. I didn't even try on the 4R because the 6R fit perfectly if not a little bit tight. But that's mostly due to my bust and is the case for me in most dressed. The one strap was great and really stayed up all night. I wasn't tugging very much at all. The length is perfect if you're in pretty standard high heels. The cutout is also very flattering. Loved this dress and would definitely wear it again.

Easy process of receiving and sending back
I ordered two different dresses, however the one dress was sent with a busted zipper. So I wore this dress to a black tie wedding, super comfortable and received a ton of compliments. I wish a 2P was available, but ordered the 2R and the dress fit perfectly except the length. However the slit in the front helped offset the length, along with a pair of 5 inch heels!

Tight on the chest area but fit amazing everywhere else. I'm a 34DD bra so I knew I had to get a bigger size. I normally wear 2-4. I got a long because I am 5'7 and it was perfect.

I got so many compliments on this dress, it is incredibly flattering!
The dress fit smaller, I usually wear a six and am so glad I got the 8 as my second size and actually wore the 8. I am 5'5" and wore 4 inch heels, the length was perfect! The boning got a little uncomfortable under my arms at the end of the night but other than that this dress was perfect!

Loved this dress!
This dress made me feel sexy and sophisticated. The reason I rated it only 4 stars was because the slit did come a little high up for the leg when I was walking/dancing which made me a little uncomfortable (I was with my coworkers). Otherwise, I would rent this dress again!

very elegant
Perfect for a black tie wedding! After reading over the reviews, i decided to rent my usual size (4R) and a size up (6R) since others said the dress runs very small. I ended up going with the 4R. The dress was only tight around my rib cage which I suspected since it is on the wider side. However since I have a very small chest, it only started to irritate me the last hour of the night. I am 5'2 and wore 3" heels and the dress only dragged an inch. The 6R would have worked also only it was a few inches longer and didnt hug my body.If you have a chest size larger than a B, definitely go with a size up. Overall, SOO happy with this dress!!

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!

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 !!
