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.

The RTR staff are incredible! Very helpful and easy to reach! Can't wait to rent again!
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!
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!
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!

Elegant yet sexy. Absolutely loved this dress.
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.

Loved renting this dress! My sisters and I( triplets!) all rented the runway from prom and it was unforgettable, the service was excellent they helped me find a dress quickly and were so kind. The dress was beautiful I loved the cutout and it fit perfectly

This dress was great, had nothing but complements the whole night.
I am normal a size 4. I ordered a size 2 and 4 . I tried on the 2 first and it fit but just really tight. Probably should have worn the size 4. But great dress over all.

Two other girls had this dress at the event, but they wore it very differently than I did.
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!
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.
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 received so many compliments on this dress and I felt absolutely beautiful!
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!

Loved it. Very comfortable, very flattering, very sexy, but still classic. Compliments all night.
At 5'10, I could've definitely used the long sizes, but they were unavailable. Still, wasn't a huge deal, even with heels! Easy dress to wear a bra with, but one wasn't necessary if you are small chested like me. VERY comfortable, and looks great in person and photographs.

The fit is great. The bust area was tight which meant I couldn't wear a bra but I was okay with that. Overall, the dress is gorgeous and you will get so many compliments and looks! You will be the showstopper of the party!

This dress was amazing. I felt like a super model!
I wore this for my friend's senior prom and it was the best dress that I have ever worn. I got a ton of compliments on it. The The dress fit really well.The one shoulder is adjustable which helped with the fit. Overall it fit great, however I couldn't wear a bra with the dress or it would have been too tight around the chest. The fabric is very thick and that was the only reason I felt comfortable not wearing a bra. I wore about 3 inch heels with the dress and it was just slightly off the ground. I do think that the dress had been hemmed a little though because the dress kept catching on my heels when I would walk. But this was still the most perfect dress.

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

Simple yet edgy dress!
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.

Went to a wedding at The Plaza and despite the number of gorgeous ball gowns others were wearing, this dress was complimented on several times. Very comfortable fit, flattering and still classy. So glad RTR helped to make this night so great.

I absolutely loved this dress! I was worried about renting a dress and it not getting here until the day before my event, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was nothing less than perfect. I loved everything about this dress and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a classy, sheek look.

I felt confident and sexy in this modest black dress. Love the Bermuda "triangle" look.
Dress fit me perfectly.... I'm not quite 5'x8" and with small heels the dress was the perfect length.

Conservatively Edgy
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 for prom! RTR <3
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

perfect black tie wedding dress
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
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.

Wonderful dress!
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.

edgy but appropriate
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.

This dress was perfect!!! I received a ton of compliments. It was my first rental, but not my last.
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!!!

Loved the dress. Classic + cut out is a fun twist w/ an. Blake tie wedding. Lots of compliments!
Fit is perfect! Very flattering and comfortable. Didn't need to wear a bra with it. Nice thick fabric. Comfortable to sit and dance in. I am 5'4 and the hem hit the ground perfectly.

I wore this dress to my senior prom, it was beautiful.
The dress definitely runs small so I would order your second size bigger, but the 8 fit live a glove. It was the perfect length with my three inch heels and flattered my body type wonderfully. I loved it, it was perfect for prom, and nobody had my dress.
