Channel you inner Michelle Obama/ Jackie O

Great fit, works well with our without shape wear, the back zipper with colar requires you to put it over your head vs step into. Wrikles a bit if you're seated most of the day. One of my favorite dresses so far

Perfect in every way

Truly gorgeous fit, unbelievably flattering neckline and completely comfotable to boot! I wore this to work and it received a slew of compliments- mostly from other women. It's about as good as it gets.

Normally 4/6, but 2 was perfect. Great work dress with a little edge and very flattering to hourglass/fit build.

Feminine but professional

The neck line is very appealing and the fit hugs your curves. The dress itself is stretchy and comfortable. The length is long enough to make it appropriate for work, but can also definitely wear this dress for an after work event. I would rent again.

Black work dress redefined!

Love the fit of this dress. Wore it both with and without blazer on different occasions. Just be careful that the slit in the back is a bit higher than most work dresses. But the hourglass fit of this dress makes up for that bit.

Sexy and comfortable

Although this fit, my bra showed at the armhole so I decided not to wear it. I love it and will try a larger size so the bust isn't as tight, which was the cause of the issue.

Great work dress

Fit was great! Wore this to host a bus tour of senior citizens for work. Didn't wrinkle, fabric was not too thick or flimsy, no spanx needed!

Unique LBD

Fits true to size. Fun neckline jazzes up an otherwise plain LBD. Hits just below the knee which i thought was a super flattering. Would rent again. Felt very chic

Great dress - too big on me

A great twist on the traditional "LBD." Loved the a-symmetrical neck line. After reading other reviews I sized up, but should not have, so I didnt actually get to WEAR the dress. :-( I'm a 14 & should have stuck with a 14 vs. ordering a 16. Would rent again in my size as the material was great & the length was perfect for work ... it was just too big in the belly area. Love that it has "darts" (in my opinion, the darts make the dress appear more tailored & work appropriate work).

Not for curvy gals!

I didn't actually wear this out of the house, but wanted to share what it looked like on me. I'm usually between a 12 and 14 and while this technically fit, it was not flattering--it was a little tight at the chest and the hips, and baggy around the stomach. It doesn't show quite as much in the pictures but I honestly looked like I'm pregnant in this dress (I'm not!). I'm sure this looks better on less curvy figures!

Cool neckline

This dress is awesome. My measurement is 5'0 weight 121 bust 34b, waist 27 hip 38 and the 4 was perfect. Not tight or lose just perfect. And it hit right at the knee. Oh yes and to put it on is a challenge - like putting an adult onesie on yourself. Zipping it Up was easy due to the stretch in the material

Not good for short ladies

Not too tight so appropriate for work but very long. I'm 5'0 and 126lbs so I was drowning in this. Usually my curves will make longer dresses work but this was too long. So I never wore it out

Runs extremely small

I typically wear a 10-12 and couldn't even zip up the 12. I do love the cut so I am going to try again with a larger size.

The neckline is lovely!

This dress is the perfect work sheath. It's true to size. I wore Size 0 (5'5; 113 lbs). The neckline is what makes this other wise simple dress so beautiful. Classy and classic. Perfect for work.

Not good for my body type. I'm boxy and it wouldn't zip. It hugged the wrong places.

Didn't camouflage the tummy

Fabric was was thick and stretchy, more sexy and form fitting than I thought. Not enough camouflage of the tummy. Would work well for maternity. At this size would not be appropriate for work, but I might try to size up.

Loved it. Reminded me of one of the Black Panther dresses and delivered.

Great dress but zipper was a bit weird to accommodate collar which made it hard to zip up by yourself.

Love!

Perfect LBD. I've rent this twice now and typically find myself between an 8 and 10, first rented in size 8 which I wore to work with a blazer and flats which transitioned perfectly into a fancy date later that night with sky high heels and no blazer. Rented again in a 10 (again for work, wanted a bit more wiggle room) fit both times was great - love the neck line as well.

Classy and comfortable

This was my first time renting from rent the runway and this dress eased all of my hesitations. The dress is very comfortable. I wore it from 8:30 AM to 10:00 PM. It made me feel very skinny. The material is thick but again very comfortable. I loved the neckline. The only thing that would make this dress any better is pockets! The only con I would have is that since I traveled alone I had a hard time zipping the back of the dress on my own. I would love to buy this dress if I could!

Formal work dress, good for business meetings

Pros + interesting neckline on an otherwise classic black dress + fabric has some give but also smoothes everything out Cons - at 5'7, hit below my knees, making it a little more formal than I expected - with a regular bra, I had to keep tucking the straps under. Should be ok with a strapless
