Stunning & dramatic yet regal and fancy.
This dress is a must to rent! It sets up really well on and looks stunning in black with the one shoulder look. This dress fit me true to size. I'm tall and thin and ordered a 4L. It fit like a glove. I do recommend for any women to wear spandex under this dress due to it hugs the body. The dress was a perfect height with 2 1/2 heels and hit the floor just slightly. The slit was perfection! My event was a black tie Oxford reunion dinner and this dress made an entrance while being effortless. Go team!

The dress was perfect for a black tie wedding in January and received many compliments.
The dress fit true to size. I ordered the 2 and 4 and ended up wearing the 2. The 4 was a little large in the breast area and was sagging under my left arm. Thank goodness the dress wasn't too long and I could wear heals that didn't need to be too tall. Everyone loved the dress and I received a lot of compliments.

Loved the dress, but it was a bit large in the bust. I should have gotten a size 4 instead.

so classy and sexy all in one!
Fits true and hugs all the right places. bust was a bit loose so make sure to have a great padded strapless if you are B cup or smaller. Length was perfect and I'm 5'2"!!! Wore my Stuart's nudist and then plats during reception. So many compliments all night long and my husband couldn't stop staring!

Didn't wear this dress
This dress looked great in the photo but was extremely disappointed when I received it. The material is not what I expected and the draping from the shoulder is awkward. Maybe if I would have ordered a smaller size it would have fit better, but I normally wear size 8 in dresses. Glad I purchased a gown as a backup.

I had an amazing time at the Gala and everyone complimented me on my dress.
If you are 5'8" or taller, you definitely need the long version of this dress. I should have gone with a 2L because the stretchy material made it loose around the waist and chest. I had to use double stick tape to make sure it didn't fall down on one side. But it's such a comfortable dress and truly show stopping. I wish I could have kept it!

Because of the material, it is very form fitting. The dress is made of a stretchy material, so it shows all curves. Loved it and felt amazing all night! Would rent again.

Elegant gown, perfect for a black tie wedding!
I was looking for an elegant dress with a twist for a black tie wedding. I loved the look of this dress because it was super formal, but it also was interesting with the slit and one-shoulder look. My biggest decision was trying to decide between the Regular and Long length. I didn't want to trip on the bottom of the dress, but I also didn't want it to be too short. Unfortunately, there were no Long's in stock, so I went for the 0R and it was a bit short. For those of you who are 5'6" or 5'7" and trying to decide between lengths, I would go for the Long rather than the Regular, especially if you plan to wear a heel over 3". Additionally, the material is very thin and clingy, so beware of that. I got tons of compliments on this dress and I personally loved it! I would definitely recommend it!

The dress was perfect, came on time and was so easy to mail back! I'll always rent for an event now!
This dress was given many compliments throughout the night! I felt awesome in it and it was perfect for my event. The dress fit really well except for the top. I wore a "stick on " bra and my 36C's were not filling out the dress as well as I would have liked- a regular strapless bra would have been a better choice. A good surprise: I'm a tall girl and I like to wear heels and the dress was totally long enough. I would totally rent this dress again!!!!

As usual, RTR had stellar service. Though I did find the arm a bit baggy, I loved the long length of the dress; it worked very well with high (4") heels.

Beautiful dress- regular too short
I loved this dress!! The 2L would have been the perfect fit but it was unavailable so I had to wear the 2R and it was too short- I felt uncomfortable the majority of the night because I kept pulling the dress down to make sure my heels weren't showing. I wouldn't definitely rent again though in the 2L because I love the fit other than that!

I got a lot of compliments on the dress because it was so simple but different.
It was loose around the bust, I used double sided tape so it wouldn't fall. Also I wish it was longer. I'm 5-5 and ordered the regular length.

Classic dress for formal affair
Although the dress was a little loose on me, I was able to pull it off. It was a little loose in the bust, long in the arms, and about three inches too long. Still received compliments all night and just held the bottom up when I walked.

Edgy neckline.
This was my backup dress and I didn't end up wearing it. All of my friends loved this on me but I wasn't feeling it. To me, it accentuated my muffin top and the material wasn't forgiving. The material also seemed a little cheap to me. The neckline and slit make this dress edgy and different but I just didn't care for it.

Sexy, fun dress but I'm 6'1" so it was a little short
I rented this dress for a performance at an art gallery and I got a ton of compliments on it and felt great in it for the most part! After trying on both the 4L and the 6L I decided to go with the larger for more length because I'm a giant but it was still an awkward length for my taste. The dress barely touched the floor without heels let alone with them. Other than that, it fit perfectly and the slit... The slit is sexy! Great dress, just not long enough for my tall figure.

Great Dress, very comfortable
I loved this dress. I ordered both the 4R and the 6R, apparently the 4 was not available. The 6 fit but was a little big on the bust area, but I made it work. Got lots of compliments and I highly recommend this dress!!!

Fun night in DC at a black tie event.
Loved this dress! I'm not usually one to wear something like this and I don't attend many black tie events so I decided to go for it. Got compliments from strangers so I don't think people were just being nice.

This material is so flattering. I felt like a model all night!
I wore this for a fall wedding and everyone wanted to know where I got it. I was happy to brag about rent the runway! The material falls beautifully and it is not at all clingy. I was very comfortable in it though one arm was a little cold! No true complaints though. I will say, I body build so I have very muscular arms. I think the sleeve would be loose on most women

This dress was great. I ordered the 8L and the 12L because the 10L wasn't available and both fit great but I ultimately went with the 12 in order to have a little more room in my stomach, I think the 10 would've fit perfectly. Overall I got tons of compliments and looked great!

Unforgettable
I was pleasantly surprised by this stunning dress. It was very comfortable and hugged all the right areas. It was different & edgy enough that I was stopped all night with compliments. Definitely wear a black strapless bra under it though, my nude bra did show through in a couple photos.

Loved the look
The quality of the fabric was not great and there were little holes in the seams of the back of the dress. I mended them myself before heading out in the dress which, once it was fixed, was very cool. Sort of a retro-Charlies-Angels kind of feel...

Cute idea, but poor execution
The length was good for me (I'm 5'6'' with heels), but it was way too large; the bust area did not hug and the part that drapes over was too loose; I had to use fashion tape to make it look OK. I wish the material was not as stretchy so that it would be more form-fitting.

I wore this dress doe mt senior prom, and my dress was classy. seriously so pleased
without heels it was waaay too long, like tripping over it long. and i had to hold up the ends of it while i danced (because i wasnt wearing shoes so it was long) so i wouldnt step on it. the pros way way way outweigh the cons.

MY FAVORITE RENTAL YET!!!YOU NEED THIS DRESS!!
Fit is tight, and the fabric is unforgiving so you may want to rent a size up than your usual. The sleeve, the cut, the slit... is all perfection!!! Compliments all day and night and I feel amazing wearing this dress! The wedding was actually a cool day in St. Louis and it couldn't have been more perfect for the dress. I wore the long and the length was good with 3.5 inch heels. Not only did I get a zillion compliments in person but my facebook BLEW UP with comments about this dress!!! The best part is that is way a backup dress because my original rental was way to short!! Rent the Runway thanks again for your amazing customer service!!!

Gorgeous!
I rented this dress for my bridesmaids to wear at my wedding and they looked amazing. Six women of all different heights, shapes and body types - from petite, tall and athletic to short and curvy - they all looked beautiful and glamorous. One note - the fabric is stretchy with give but shows every bump underneath. Spanx or seamless panties are a must. Also, the collar part is not as taut as it look in the pictures. Double stick tape will help it lay flat.

This is an unbelievably flattering dress. Very exotic, incredibly classy.
I am almost 6ft tall. It is very hard for me to find formal dresses that fits in length. This dress was a dream come true. I wore this dress to my husbands company Christmas Gala. People are still commenting on the dress and have nicknamed it; The Bond Girl Dress. The fit of the dress was true to size and very flattering. You need minimal accessories with a dress like this. If you have it on your short list, do yourself a favor, get it.
