Simple but Show Stopping!
A sleek but comfortable fit! I got so many compliments on this dress. Only con was the slight hole in the side that I noticed when I received the dress.

So comfortable
I usually wear a 2 but a 0 & 4 were the only ones available. I went for it anyways because it was so pretty. Both sizes fit but I liked the 0 better. It was classy and conservative but not too conservative for a college formal. Loved it!!

Very flattering & sexy - serendipity for the win!
I received this dress when my original dress was unavailable to ship because of damage and there was only one size available for the backup I picked; the RTR stylist picked it. I assume she selected it because it's similar in many ways to my original dress (Black Lana dress). This dress is also long and slinky with a big slit. I had shapewear since I was going to wear the Black Lana dress, and it's necessary for this one too; the fabric shows every little bump. I wore super-highwaist boyshort Spanx and a regular strapless bra. I wore the 4R; I could've worn a 2 if I had it; the 4 was a tad loose (given how tightly the dress should fit). I normally don't go for asymmetrical designs, but this was super sexy and flattering, but comfortable too.

This dress was GREAT. Super Comfy, lightweight and breathable.
was able to wear a strapless bra with no problem. Did use fabric tape to keep the fabric on the right shoulder in place, as it does move a little. Very flattering on the hips if you have a smaller waist. Great rent.

Great dress - dramatic! Received a ton of compliments!
I think it runs a little large – although the material is thin and clingy. I normally wear a size 4 but should have gotten the 2 in this dress. The sleeve was slightly baggy and the chest area was somewhat stretched out.

Got so many compliments!
This dress was perfect. The material was stretchy enough for my baby bump. I usually wear an 8 but I ordered the 10 because of the baby bump and bigger boobs. I am currently a 36DD and 4 1/2 months pregnant. I am 5'2" and work 5 inch heels and it was perfect length. Would definitely recommend this dress! Very comfortable too!

Unique cut, runs slightly large, unforgiving fabric
The dress runs slightly large, and the fabric, as others mention, is extremely unforgiving. I had to buy shapewear for it because it made my stomach look strange because of the fabric's clingy nature. I also needed to rig it up with double-sided tape because it ran rather large. After all of the modifications, I loved wearing the dress, and I think the pictures turned out well. It was definitely a unique twist on a formal black dress. Also, RTR always impresses me with excellent customer service. Thanks!

Elegant, unique and stunning
This dress stands apart because it is so unique. Its a stunning dress that throws an eye catching twist on your basic black gown. I was a little surprised to discover the long sleeve/mock neck piece has sort of shawl layer to it. Its hard to describe but its like a layer over the dress. I received a lot of compliments and overall Im pleased however there were some issues: there were a couple of fit problems. A little puckering in places like at the back, bottom of the zipper. The material is very thin so i think the puckering was caused by the bulky zipper base. Also a slight puckering at long sleeve shoulder. As i said the material is very thin so in pictures with a flash, i could see through to my bra. Sorry i always forget to take pics!

The slit was a head turner
I wore this dress for a NYE wedding it was easy to dance in and comfortable. It ran slightly large the smaller size was damaged and I couldn't wear. I ended up wearing the 10 it wasn't skin tight but still looked great.

Looks good but terrible material
I really wanted to love this dress but couldn't. It photographs well but it is a very thin, clingy, cheap material. I've bought dresses at Express that have been a better, more flattering material. Black shapewear is an absolute must. But turned out to be a little difficult because of the high slit. Be aware of the length as well. I am only 5'4" and wearing heels, I ended up needing the long length...RTR customer service is amazing though- I got regular lengths in two sizes that were way too short-RTR overnighted me the long length!

Obsessed with this dress! Would 100% rent this same one again. The fit was great! The sleeve was a little long, but nothing too noticable. I ordered a 0R and 2R, but wore the 0R. I'm 5' 4" and the length was perfect with heels. The material hugs your body, so I recommend spanx to keep everything smooth.

The 2R was perfect length for dancing in 3 inch heels at a wedding. Was snug, but the fabric doesn't stretch. True to size. I was receiving complements on it all night!

Did not wear for my event.
This was a back-up style I chose at the last minute for my James Bond cocktail party as the dress of my choice was no longer available for shipping. Darling style, but not for my body type (pear shaped). The Jersey knit material is too thin for my liking. I could not even wear Spanx with it, as the seam on the belly part of the Spanx showed through. I think it would be terrific dress for straight figures.

The dress came in on the day it was expected and an adult night with my love!
The dress fit very well. I went with my back up size of a 10. The only con would be that I had to keep pulling up the side without the sleeve. I probably could have gone with a size 8 but oh well still loved it!!!

Inauguration Fave
This dress is awesome. It's this kind of stretchy material and because it black I imagine it would flatter most. The cool neckline is flattering for those of us that weren't given a bigger bust. I have bigger hips so the fabric fell over my curves well. I'm 5'4 and went with a regular size with 4" heels. Super comfy, easy to move, and head turning dress! Rent now!

This is a beautiful dress that received many compliments. It is a matte jersey material with no lining so it definitely needs a body shaping under garment. Perfect for any formal!

So comfortable !
This dress was the most comfortable thing on the planet. I'm 5'3 so it was a little long with heels, but not annoying enough to never wear it again. I'd rent it 100 more times if I could. I have an athletic build, so I was afraid the sleeves would suffocate my arms, but the stretch on this thing was magical! A great choice is you are on the busty side, too. :)

Timeless black tie event gown
I wore this for a NYE black tie wedding; it's a comfortable dress that was perfect for the event. I ordered the 2P, as they didn't have a 0P, but probably could have worn the zero (Im typically a. 0-2). Even for a petite, it was still a little long, even with 4 1/2 heels (slit does help) and the top was a little loose. The sleeve of the dress was also a little baggy and long, I had to cuff the bottom. Overall, a simple statement dress that's comfortable!

Black Tie Optional
I rented the dress for a NYE wedding that was Black Tie optional. The fit was perfect and I received countless compliments. I wore a 0L and I am 5'7" and wore 4" heels. The fabric is very thin so it is very body revealing. Also because the fabric is thin I noticed in photos you could see my silicone pasties through the dress when flash was used.

Classy AND sexy!
So fun! Simple but with a twist- between the slit and the fun neckline. Fabric was like wait and slinky. Hugged curves in all the right ways. I'm a 32D so I wore a strapless nude bra with no peek through issues and I think you could wear spanx under it if you wanted. Great classy long black dress!

Lots of compliments
I really loved this dress - it's so unique and simple. I felt really elegant for a black tie NYE wedding and received a lot of compliments. I felt beautiful and also like myself - I didn't feel like I was playing dress up in something really fancy or hard to wear. It was one of the most comfortable dresses I've ever worn. I read all of the reviews for it ahead of time and I'm so glad I did. Definitely wear black shapewear underneath, even if you don't need it (I did). It helps to smooth out any lines and adds another layer because the dress material is thin - and unfortunately the size I wore had a few holes in it, one right on the hip that would've shown through to my skin if I wasn't wearing shapewear. As other reviewers said, the dress is rather sheer, so wearing the shapewear made me feel more secure (you can see a bit of the sheerness in my arm in the photo). I was nervous a camera flash would show my bra but it didn't. I wore a black strapless bra. I wore red heels - I'm 5'4" and a 3" heel was perfect. I was nervous about it being too long and having to wear really high heels, because I'm on the shorter side, but a lower heel was fine. I also wore it with minimal jewelry - the neckline stands out on its own and larger earrings were perfect to complete the look.

Beautiful, elegant, statement making, comfortable and wearable gown, awesome for black tie/weddings!
Fit: True to size. I'm usually a 2, a 0 on a good day, and the 0 was way too tight for my imperfect hips/waist. 5 lbs ago I could probably have fit in the 0. Short girls - order the P (petite sizes) if you don't plan on wearing more than a 3 inch heel. I wore 5.3 inch YSLs so those worked for my 5'2" height. It was a very good length. I think this dress will work whether you are busty or not - because the material is stretchy and somewhat forgiving, you will fit just right if you are small, and if you are larger, you will fill it out nicely. The top fits a little bit large. Pros: Stretchy and forgiving fit, elastic material. Very elegant, very classy, the thigh slight hits perfectly on the leg, super versatile, no necklace needed if you do earrings and a bracelet on the strapless arm side. It really is like getting 2 looks in 1. It is a very unique and stylish dress. You will no doubt receive compliments on it. Cons: SEE THROUGH!! Beware, if you are wearing a strapless bra, wear a BLACK one. No nude, no white. I wore a nude strapless bra first and thank goodness I had taken a picture before leaving the house. With the flash, you could see the bra through the dress. Solution for me was throwing a black bandeau over my bra since I don't have a black strapless. I also hooked the strap on the convertible bra under the covered shoulder for extra support. Other than it being slightly sheer under the flash of a camera, the flap thing can be annoying if you are particular. Also noticed the long sleeve/shoulder area on the covered side was a little baggy, even with my broad shoulders. Lastly, the material seems a bit thin/elastic I think I would have liked something a tiny bit thicker or sturdier.

Loads of compliments
This dress is very body conscious. It's true to size and the material is very Jersey like. You will need to wear a strapless bra because of the neckline. The slit is pretty high so you will not be able to wear Spanx unless it's a body suit of panty type. Love this dress received lots of compliments!

LOVE!!!
This dress fit like a glove and got me SO MANY compliments all night long! I'm 5'2" and the regular size was long enough for me when paired with about 2 inch heels. This dress IS slightly sheer when in the light though, and it WILL show every curve, but I wore a black bra/tummy toner, which made it perfectly fine. I wore this to a gala and even though there was a sea of black dresses, I stood out because of how unique this dress is. Would rent this again in a heartbeat!!

Simple dress with a little sass.
Pros: comfortable, classic black, sleek and sexy, a bit conservative on top, but the slit is near scandalous so avoid if showing some leg makes you uncomfortable. Cons: SUPER thin, no lining (you will need quality undergarments to keep it all together; satin-like and black, no lace or design as it will show through); the flap on the top is a bit odd at first (it likely would have been better if I had ordered a smaller size.) I'm 5'1, 160 lbs, usually size 10/12, but the 8 would have looked more tailored.

I'm glad I went up a size and got the 8L, fit like a glove. Material is very thin and will show everything so be prepared! Loved loved LOVED this dress!!

It made me feel like a million bucks
This dress was perfect and rent the runway was perfect! It arrived on time with no problems and it was SO easy to return. I wore the 0L and I'm about 5'5"-5'6" and I wore it with 3-4" heels and it was the absolute perfect length. I never tried on the 2 because i felt like the 0 fit fine, but in some of the lighting i noticed when I sat down around my legs the fabric was so thin when it stretched it was a little see through. Also, definitely find some sort of spanx, it just makes you feel so much more secure and you don't have to feel self conscious about anything. I got black ones and it helped making the material look thicker. This dress got so many compliments, you can't not feel like a celebrity while wearing this dress!

I rented 4 and 2. Tried the 2 and fit perfectly. The fabric is thin and has no structure, so I would recommend wearing a spandex. I loved the neckline and it is super comfortable. The slit on the leg super sexy in a good way. One of my favorite rentals for sure!

This dress was beautiful, Im 5ft and I ended up getting a 2R and a 4R as back up, I ended up with the 2R however I def would've prefer 2P as it was kind of long on me even with heels on also the top is a little bit loose to were it kept falling off at times.. Overall the dress was super sexy and elegant at the same time. I do recomend it :)

Weird flap over the chest
I tried this dress on and immediately had to return it. The long sleeved side has a flap that crosses the chest but it doesn't lay flat. It just did not lay well on me. BUT RTR saved me! My event was the next day and I needed a new dress. Marissa helped me choose a new dress and it arrived my noon the next day!

Perfect fit. Comfortable. Could dance all night in it. I got an 8 long and I could of gotten a regular just as easily. At 5'9 I was that weird height in between regular and tall. I felt so confident in it and sexy. I got so many complements at the ball. Great style. Great price. Love love love it. Highly recommend for formal event and even a night out.
