no need to wear a bra, covers enough so u feel very confident/comfortable, runs small esp around the torso, fabric does give but only a tad

I got so many compliments on the dress! It was unique, yet classy for the black tie wedding.
I ordered a size up. I went with the normal size. Also, my bust size is actually a 34D. It appears to be listed incorrectly below, as well as my height, which is 5'4, not 5'6.

Love this dress, looks better on an in person
For reference I am 5'4", 130 lbs and a 34C hourglass. I rented this dress in a 6R and it was gorgeous. I ended up returning it for the event, but actually think I'm re-ordering it because I had second thoughts about it. The pictures on the model do not do this dress justice, it fits well and is elegant yet sexy. The top was a slightly too large in the 6R, but given my figure, I don't think a 4R would fit as nicely in the butt/thigh area. If you are taller than 5'6" and plan on wearing higher than 3" heels I would recommend getting a long.

Perfect dress
It fit true to size. The long length was perfect for my height (5'7") with three inch heals. A little stretch was great too. Perfect for dancing and was comfortable all night. Would definitely rent again.

Wore at formal anniversary party
I ordered a 2 and 4 because reviews said ran a little tight. I never ended up trying on 4 because the 2 fit absolutely perfectly. Wore heels with dress and was perfect length. One of the most elegant dresses I have rented from RTR. Material was very comfy and able to match so much with dress. Highly recommend for event!

Comfortable Girls!
I originally wanted to wear the 4R, and I could have, but I wore the 6L instead. I'm sure glad I chose the larger size because I was bloated and stuffing my face all night! The material was a bit stretchy so I felt the 4R ran a bit small to begin with. I elected to not wear a bra, but I definitely could have fit that bugger in there if I wanted to due to the stretchiness. It was a perfect dress for a formal wedding in The Loop of Chicago; simply beautiful, elegant, and COMFORTABLE. Order it girls! You won't regret it. Major plus : I felt like the dress made me look skinny! So, if that's something you look for in a dress (especially when you're at wedding and want to look hot) then definitely rent this dress. Just some specs on my body: Usual Size: 4, Size Worn: 6L, Height: 5'7, Weight: 130lbs, Bust: 32DD

Very flattering!
I wore this to a med school formal. Great fabric and fit, I got tons of compliments. Unfortunately, there were no petites left and I had to get a regular which was WAY too long. I ended up using fabric tape along the bottom to shorten the dress and it turned out fine. It is a little tight in the bust area so I went up a size.

Classy with a twist!
This dress was amazing. I am short and was worried it would be too long, but this fit me just right! It helps that there is a slit in the front. This made it easier to walk. I am 5'4" and wore 3.5 inch heels and it was perfect. I received tons of compliments on this dress. The cut-out in the dress is a nice surprise.

I loved this dress!
I wore this dress to a black tie event for work and it was great! I'm 5'6" and ~125lbs & the 4R fit well. The only thing that could've been better was the length. It ended up being a little short with my heels, which were about 3-4". Definitely would recommend this dress!

I have very broad shoulders and rib cage, definitely needed to size up to accommodate. It's truly a beautiful dress - understated glamour! Slit is just the right length.

The material was so comfortable and I received SO many compliments on this dress!
I'm 5'10 so it was just a little short with 3 inch heels, maybe half an inch off the floor. I was expecting the dress to be super stiff looking at the pictures but the fabric actually had a little stretch to it, making it super comfortable and easy to walk/dance in! The cutout on top also made it easy to wear a strapless bra too.

Loved this dress!
Wore this dress to a black tie optional wedding and received so many compliments. Fits true to size, I could have worn either the 6 or 8 but went with the 6. It felt a little tight around the waist when I sat down but other than that was great! Would definitely rent again.

The dress fit pretty true to size. A little big in the bust but nothing an adhesive bra couldn't fix for me (I'm a 34B). I would recommend this dress - it was very comfortable and flattering!

So comfortable and easy to wear!
This dress fit like a glove and was so easy to wear. I wore it to a black tie wedding and it was so comfortable! I wish I had ordered an 8L because it was an inch or two short but I wore shorter heels and it worked out fine. Also I typically wear a 6 and definitely needed an 8 in this dress. I didn't wear a bra and it was perfect! I would definitely rent this again.

Pretty and sexy... but definitely NOT a petite
Make no mistake, this dress was a win. I loved the fabric - it's nice and substantial and drapes nicely. The cutout is placed so strategically - it provides enough of a peek-a-boo to be sexy but covers up enough that I felt comfortable. Now for the cons... I am super short (5'1") and pretty busty (32DD) despite a small frame (size 4). I realllllllly need a petite dress and though RTR calls this a petite, what they really mean is that it has a shorter hemline than regular dresses. It does NOT have petite proportions, meaning that the waistline was a bit long, the one shoulder would have been super long if it didn't have an adjustable strap in the back. Also, despite a shorter length and 3.5" heels, it still hung on the floor an inch or two. Because of the front slit, this was not a problem at all, so if all you're worried about is length, you're good. If you're looking for a petite fit, good luck.

the slit
A little tight around the rib cage, I am a little bigger in that area so it could have just been my body. Otherwise dress was great. Material was a bit heavy so if you were to wear it outside might not be the best dress. Otherwise I loved it. Slit makes it very sexy

Classic black dress with a twist
This was perfect for a black tie wedding. It does run small, and usually I think BCBGMaxAzria runs big. I usually wear a 2 and I wore the 4R. It was very long- even with 5 inch heels the dress dragged a bit (I'm 5'4"). I got several compliments. This wasn't my all-time favorite rental, but it got the job done and was easy to dress up with some fun statement accessories.

Beautiful wedding. Beautiful dress.
The dress was perfect. Super comfortable. Although I should have ordered a 4 to try, the 6 fit but could've been tighter in the waist. None the less I thought it looked amazing and I received many compliments throughout the evening. I definitely recommend this dress.

I loved this dress! I wore it to my friends black tie wedding and got a ton of compliments!
This dress definitely runs on the small side. I have a 34DD bust, am 130 pounds and usually wear a size 2 dress. All the reviews that I read said this dress runs small, so I wanted to get the size 2 and the size 4 as a backup. Unfortunately, the size 4 was sold out so I had to get a size 6 as a backup which would've been way too big. The size 2 fit me, but it was really, really tight, especially in the chest/stomach area. You don't need to wear a bra with it which is nice. The 4 probably would have fit me perfectly but I was able to get away with wearing the 2.

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.

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.
