The dress is true to size! If you go to BCBGs website and look at their size chart for dresses it is pretty much right on. I had a 0 2 and 4 and ended up wearing the 2. It fit perfectly! I was worried about the length because I am 5'1 but with a medium sizes heel it was perfect! The dress is so flattering and comfortable! I received so many compliments.

I rented this dress for a black tie wedding and absolutely loved it!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was the perfect blend of sexy and sophisticated. I am short, so I had to wear very high heels (4+ inches) in order to make sure it didn't drag on the floor. This was my alternate dress, but I loved it so much that I decided to wear it instead of the one I originally ordered.

Eye-Catcher!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Wore this to a wedding reception in Chicago and it was a perfect choice. Very sleek, but also fun! Danced the night away (super comfy) I'm pretty tall & I wore 4 inch heels, but the regular length was perfectly fine. The cut out was JUST enough to be edgy, but not over doing it. I am a smaller bust, so I will say if you're above a B, be careful with it being a little tight. Overall great rental!

I love love loved this dress. It's elegant yet sexy. It's really comfortable as well. I wore this to my senior prom and couldn't even tell you how many compliments I received on it. I normally wear a six in formal dresses but the six was a little small on my waist so I went with the second size I ordered, an eight. Definitely recommend renting this gown.

Perfect for prom! RTR <3

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was perfect for prom! The length worked perfectly for me and I loved how the slit was not super obvious like it is on the models. It was pretty comfortable and I didn't have to worry about pulling it up all the time like a strapless dress. However towards the end of the night the boneing on the sides started to dig into my sides. I originally ordered the 2 as my second size and ended up wearing it because tit fit much better and was way more comfortable. The 0 was too tight around my torso and butt. Overall it was perfect and made me feel sexy but elegant :) oh and I wore it with the earrings they recommend

Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was perfect! I rented it as my backup and did not end up wearing it, it seemed a little too sophisticated for my junior prom. But I had to review it because I loved it so much! It is comfortable, fun and light and fit me perfectly. I was so worried about my bust being too large as I am a 34 DD but it fit like a glove. Loved it, a MUST have.

Two other girls had this dress at the event, but they wore it very differently than I did.

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was great for my senior prom. As a safety measure, I went to a store and tried it on before I reserved it. I'm really glad I did, because this dress runs small. I usually wear a 6, but the 8 fit perfectly. I was nervous that the dress would be too short, because I'm taller, but the regular was perfect because I wore flat sandals. Overall a really great first experience with RTR.

Elegant yet sexy, classic but modern, this dress is a showstopper!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Wore this to my senior formal. Received compliments all night, including a random guy asking to take my photo followed by a Facebook friend request the next morning. Now that's a showstopper! This dress was tight all around, and the fabric has no give. Because I have a small chest and waist, this worked for me, but if you have a larger bust, I would not recommend this dress. RTR sent me a 10 as a backup because the 8 was unavailable, and the 10 would have fit as well, albeit a little loosely, so keep that in mind if you're a bigger girl. The slit was not as high in the photo, which was a good thing. When I showed my friends that I was renting this dress, they thought it might be "too much," but changed their minds when they saw me in person. My only caveat is that when sitting down, you will bulge a little out of the cutout in the torso. It's sort of unavoidable unless you have a completely flat stomach. At your pre-event dinner, I would just cover it with the purse on your lap or something. Overall, would highly recommend. Wish I could keep it!

The flood of compliments that came my way from the beauty and sexiness of this dress.

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I wore this dress for Prom and it was beyond perfect. Different from any other dress I saw. Sexy but still classy. If you are inbetween sizes I would recommend going with the larger size. On the model, the slit appears to be on just one side but it is actually more towards the middle. This was my first choice but my backup dress was unavaible. Renttherunway was so helpful and sent my two extra dresses to make sure I had a dress I loved. So glad that I chose renttherunway.com. 5 star experience and I have recommended it to all my friends.

I wore this dress for my sorority formal and it was perfect! The cutout gave the dress the right amount of edge that I wanted without it being too revealing, but was also very elegant. This dress was also very comfortable and because I am tall, I ordered a long size and it was perfect with the 3 inch heels I wore. Overall this dress was such a great rental and I definitely recommend renting this dress!

It fit very snug. But it was true to size. The material was comfortable and did not feel cheap, Overall I thought this dress was a hit. I looked better as a sophomore at senior prom than the senior girls.

Killer Cutout.

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Loved, loved, loved this dress. They didn't have a 2R so I rented a 4R and loved the way it fit. It wasn't too tight (which I didn't want with the cut out and slit) and was incredibly comfortable. The cut out is sexy and sophisticated, and you'll receive more compliments than you anticipated.

I loved everything about this dress and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a classy, sheek look.

Classic black with a edge. Slit is the perfect height for making an "I'm here!" statement without looking trashy (lower thigh on me). The cutout keeps it from being basic and boring. The material is is stretch knit of sorts so it's comfortable and great for dancing. Thumbs up on this one.

Perfect dress to spice things up!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The fit of this dress is perfect for those with a smaller chest and fuller hips. Just for reference, I am a 24" waist and 36" hips and the 4R fit like a dream without being too tight. The fabric does have a slight stretch as well, so there were no creases that formed with sitting. I didn't feel like the cut-out was showing off too much, and it added a special touch! As for the length, I am just 5'4" and with 3-4" heels the length of the dress was just above the ground. I felt like the length was perfect for me, but anyone taller who is looking to wear high heels I would probably recommend getting a long dress size. I definitely received compliments on the dress, and it was a great choice for the fall wedding I attended!

Beautiful, sexy dress.

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
It runs a bit small. If you have a large bust, don't rent it! It doesn't have a ton of room and is certainly meant for small chested women. The cut out was a smidge larger than I expected so I needed to make sure I didn't slump throughout the evening. The cut out regardless though is in a good spot so if you are confident in your body, you will be happy. Gorgeous dress, very nice material and got tons of compliments from strangers.

The open leg is super flattering and allows you to showoff your shoes. I'm slightly shorter than average, by an inch or two, and the dress was the right length for me. If you're on the taller side or in between average and tall, I suggest going with the long sizes.

Loved this dress!!! Definitely would recommend it if you are a bit edgy. The slit is quite high, but still tasteful and the cutout is a bit larger than I expected so I would not wear it to a conservative event. Fit well and didn't need a bra which is always a plus for me!

Beautiful Dress!

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fit perfectly and the fabric is high quality. I'm 5'4" and wore the dress with 4 inch heels and it still hit the ground. I wore a strapless bra underneath but if you're larger in that area you may have to order a size larger than you normally wear since it is snug. The one strap has a hidden adjustable strap underneath it to keep it from sliding and there is lining under the dress up until the slit. Definitely an eye catching dress while still being classy! I highly recommend it! Make sure to order a size larger in your back up size if you are larger up top. This was my first experience with rent the runway and they overnighted me this dress after my original dress didn't fit. Fast and easy service and I'll be renting again.
