I wore this for a black tie wedding, it is absolutely stunning! The 4L was a little snug underneath the arm, so I went with my back up size (6R) to give my self a little more wiggle room. I have longer legs, so typically I need a little extra length on dresses, but the R was great with 4" heels.The dress is easy to accessorize, very comfortable. It was great for a fancy wedding while also comfortable enough to have a great time on the dance floor. I would 100% recommend!

Okay dress
4R fit well. I am 5'4", and the back of the dress snagged a lot on my 2.5" heels when I walked. 3" heels would have been just right. My torso is a bit too pale though so the triangle of skin looked awkward. The slit is high and will expose your thighs when you sit. This dress was just okay on me. It felt like a pretty safe and slightly boring choice for a formal affair.

My boyfriend said I looked "Stunning"!
I felt so elegant in this gorgeous dress! Just enough sexy. I will say that at times I felt uncomfortable with the middle opening (when I sat down mostly). But it photographed beautifully and am so glad I took the chance on this one!

I was nervous about not getting the petite for length, but I got away with the regular + 5" heels. It was a perfect fit and I felt amazing in it!

Great dress! Work on a 98 degree day and the slit and cut out in front helped keep it cool!
I am 5'6 and wore three inch heels and the length was perfect! Order a size up as your back up size. There's a slight hem in the back that a stiletto heel catches if you aren't careful. The dress was beautiful, I got so many compliments!

Great Gown!
This dress runs small so I would order a size larger for back up. It has thick material so no need to wear a bra. I'm tall and the dress did not go all the way to the ground even when I took my heels off. I would rent again!

I was at an outdoor wedding.
PROS: dress fit perfectly and was one of a kind. I was extremely happy with the quality and the fit. It fits true to size. I could breathe in it even after eating and dance all night in the dress. CONS: there aren't any.

Sexy yet Classy
I absolutely loved this dress. The material was pretty sturdy, but had a slight stretch to it. Perfect for a formal event, but still a little sexy in all the right ways. The slight stretch made it suitable for dancing. I had no problem with fit. I ordered a long size and the length was perfect for my height. I would definitely recommend ordering the long size if you are above 5'6". I normally am between a 2 and 4 in dresses and the 4 fit just fine.

First time renter - PLEASED!
I was nervous at first bc the backup size was the same as the size i ordered so if it didnt fit i would have no options! BUT IT DID! I got so many compliments on this dress and even had a friend order for a wedding a few weeks later! It fit like a glove. I am short, but there have been times the petite fits me oddly but this worked PERFECT with 3" heels. (112 lbs // 5'1"). Loved not spending an arm and a leg on a gown i would only wear once. Will definitely use again!

I really loved the silhouette of this dress, and I received so many compliments!
I wore this dress for a black tie optional wedding in Florida. The bust area is pretty tight, which made me size up. Also, there was a part of the corsetting that was broken, so it kept stabbing me during the night (reason for 4 stars). I wore 4" heels and the length was great, maybe just a smidge too long for my 5"1.5" frame. Overall, I loved the dress.

I got a lot of compliments on this dress and I was really comfortable all night!
It runs a little small on the bust. I'm normally a size 4 and that fit a little tight so I opted for the 6 since I would be in it all night. I'm 5'7 and wearing the long was definitely the right decision.

Not for busty women.
This is a beautiful dress but the chest has no give. I called a stylist before to make sure it was alright for busty women, and was told that it is, but I beg to differ. I would say this is best for a C or below. If you're over a C, pick something else.

A beautiful, formal wedding in Fort Lauderdale, FL
I was a little worried at first with being very flat chested but the overall fit was perfect and flattering. I received tons of compliments, danced all night and never once was uncomfortable. Highly recommended!

Amazing dress
This dress was amazing and everything I imagined for my prom. I usually wear a 4 or a 6 but the 6R seemed a big tight around the upper back and shoulder area. It's super slimming and the hole doesn't make stomach fat bulge out as much as you would think. Would definitely recommend renting for a formal event! The slit is beautiful just the right amount of classy yet sexy.

The fit was perfect and RTR customer service was very helpful. Wore this to my senior prom and got so many compliments- perfect for someone who wants something simple yet elegant. Liked it better strapless so I tucked the strap in and it looked completely normal.

Flattering, comfortable dress. I can see why it may be tighter on bigger busts but I do not have that problem. I am between a size 8 and 10, but the 8 fit perfect on this one. Perfect length with my heels.

Perfect Long Black Dress
Simply amazing. This dress was comfortable and fun to dance in. Received many compliments! I had never ordered from rtr so I wasn't sure about sizing. I ordered the 2P and 4P and ended wear the 4P and it fit perfectly. I wore 4inch heels and it barely touched the ground. I would totally order this dress again!

I was comfortable in my dress! That is a huge bonus at a wedding!
This dress fit me how I wanted to, but some may find it to be a bit snug. I did wear control top hose to smooth things out. Careful with what you choose as one pair made my skin showing in the cut-out unflattering. With a high heel, the length was perfect. Great dress!

The wedding, my boyfriend, family, friends, gorgeous sunset and this dress!
Absolutely loved this dress! Received so many compliments and even a few random messages as to where I had gotten it! Reviews are correct that it runs a bit snug on top so I would order your usual and one size up ( I usually wear a 4 but chose the 6) - and long for tall gals! Otherwise so comfortable and elegant. Get it girl!

Gorgeous formal black dress!
This dress fit exactly as expected. Length was just fine with 3" heels. Very comfortable. You can't tell from the photos but the fabric is a little thicker than I had expected and a bit textured. Beautiful fabric. Was able to skip the bra which was nice to not worry about messing with all night. Received lots of compliments! Would wear again and would recommend!

This dress is GORGEOUS and SO comfortable - I was able to dance all night!
I'm normally a size 4 for dresses but BCBG tends to run tight around my rib cage area so I ordered this in a 6 - although I do think the 4 would have worked if I had ordered that instead! Looks heavy in the photo but is actually pretty light and stretchy

Beautiful, simple dress!
I loved this dress. I had to have another dress overnighted because my first dress did not work out. I am really happy that I ended up wearing this dress because it was beautiful. It was simple, but still sexy in a classy way. I liked that it was form fitting, but flattering. The petite length fit perfect, which I was thankful for because it is hard to find dresses that fit my 5 foot height. I wore this to a military ball.

Beautiful but tall girls beware
This dress is gorgeous! It was slimming and photographed beautifully! I usually wear a 4 but ended up wearing a 6. Order your true size and 1 up. I am 5'10 1/2 and when i tried on I could tell it was gonna be short. The 6L barely grazed the ground without heels. Add 2 inch heels and it was quite a bit off the ground. This was annoying but it wasn't a huge deal. If you're over 5'7 or up I would def order a L.

The Dress was stunning! Tons of compliments and I felt amazing!
This dress was stunning and I received so many compliments! I wore a size 6R and it was a tad tight which I expected it to be because I had gained a few pounds. However, I was surprised at how tight it was around my ribcage without a bra on since I am pear shaped and has a small bust. I'm usually 5'4" and 150lbs. I wear a 32C cup and a size 6 in jeans. The height was fine with my 3-4" heels. Overall, I loved the dress and would 100% order from RTR again!

great dress for guest at black tie wedding
I rented this dress because I thought it was flattering on many different body types. I wore this for a black tie wedding in the spring. I thought it was comfortable and photographed well. The length was just off the floor (I am 5'5'' and I was wearing 4 inch heels) and I was able to wear a strapless bra. My only feedback is that the slit was pretty high. If you have wider hips, it may feel a bit revealing.

Wore for a formal ball.
Ordered a 6L and 8L -- wore the 8L. Ran smaller than what I usually wear, but loved the fit! At 6'0'', it was still a little short (with 1 inch block heeled sandals). Was super comfortable and easy to move around! The slit comes up down the middle -- a little weird, but different.

Classy dress but uncomfortable fit
I use RTR regularly and always order a 2, but I decided to order a size up after reading the reviews (4P because I am 5'2"). The cutout is unforgiving and does not stretch, so this dress is not a good option if you're at all thick in the waist. The fabric also bunched up around the bottom of the zipper in the back. I could have used a 6 so I suggest ordering two sizes too big for the back-up!

Surprise Stunner
I wore this to a hotel grand opening which was a black tie-ish (yes that's what the invite said) event and it knocked my socks off! I wasn't sure how it would look and fit /how the length would be. It was perfection and much classy+sexier than I expected. I received sooo many compliments, the middle slit and cut out really made this dress a WOW. I will rent it again!

Comfortable and breathable. Was able to dance and sit without any issues.
I am usually an 8 and the 8L was snug around the chest so I went with the 10L. You can wear a strapless bra with it with just a one shoulder strap. I am 5'7 and the long size fit perfectly with a 3.5 inch heel.
