Not flattering

Material seemed a bit informal and the top didn't sit right on my small frame.

Couldn't wear it :(

The dress was beautiful and the 8R fit well, the only issue I had was that because I'm 5'3 the cutouts felt more revealing than they look on a 5'10 model. The true reason I couldn't wear this dress was the zipper in the back. With the semi-stretchy fabric, the zipper would not sit flat. Instead it would bunch and move around like a snake in the back. I have an athletic build, with hips, and I filled out the stretch on the bottom and thus that is why I feel the zipper did not sit well on my body type. Fortunately RTR sent me Another dress overnight that arrived around 9:30am the day of and sat online with me to find a stretchy dress that would accommodate my body type and in the two sizes I needed :) awesome customer service!

Elegant, on trend and comfortable!

Ladies - please please, if you're over 5"5, get the long! It runs short and small, I'm usually a 0 or 2 in evening wear, but wore a 4 long. It's an amazing dress though, complements all night!! One more thing, the satin bottom doesn't have any padding and the top tight area adds to that mix, so be warned that every little portion of your body is shown without a control bottom (thigh/bottom support) Even the tiny girls should wear some kind of support. You'll love every minute in this dress!!!!

Comfortable and chic

The straps were a tiny bit too long but they stayed in place without tape. Might have been even better if I had bigger boobs! Overall sexy but comfortable and didn't have to wear crazy heels to make length work.

Didn't wear this one, but still pretty!

This dress looked pretty good on me, but the seams at my hips didn't lie flat. I'm not sure if that is a fit issue or an issue with the fabric. I didn't end up wearing this dress because I preferred the backup dress I ordered. The top was very flattering though, especially with my very small chest

Beautiful dress just not right for my current bust size!

This dress felt amazing on, super comfortable and I would have been abt to wear my shape wear if I had worn it. Only problem was the side boob. I was breast feeding at the time. I would say my bra size was prob 36 D. If I was standing with perfect posture then it was fine. I may order this for another event when I have stopped breastfeeding and my bra size has gone back down.

I decided to go to my prom VERY last minute and on a budget and i got a gorgeous dress right on time

My dress arrived 10am the day of my event . The is very form fitting around the stomach area so if youre very self conscience about that then you may want to reconsider this dress. As the description says its best to size up if your have bigger hips/thighs. I wore the dress to my prom and i loved it . I got plenty of compliments and it fit like a glove. There was slight difficulty with the zipper on both of the dresses but it did not make it more difficult to wear the dress

Elegant, fun

This is a very fun dress. It was sent to me as a back up for one that could not be sent to me. Unfortunately the zipper was incredibly strange... It did not lie flat in the back which my husband said "looked like a tail." Hopefully not all sizes of this dress have the same problem but the zipper made this one unwearable.

Dress fits like a glove. I only had the 8R and it was comfortable all night, but there was no way a bra would have fit in this dress. Dress cutouts hit perfectly, length was almost short, but paired with 4" heels.

Perfect dress for the 2014 Marine Corp ball! Loved it and felt amazing in it! Wish I could keep it!

Definitely not for women with bigger chests. I'm a 34B and wore the 6--I had no problems for the most part but the nu bra I was wear would occasionally peak out the bottom! Otherwise this dress was absolutely perfect and I felt amazing in it! I probably could have worn the 4R (I ordered it separately) but with the chest issue, the 6R was definitely the way to go for me!

Simple and chic.

I ordered both the 2R and 4R, both fit but the 4R was more flattering as the 2R pulled weirdly around the cutouts. I do wish I had gotten a long versus a regular because the regular was about an inch off the ground and I would preferred it to the floor. That was my only con though. It was comfortable, and easy to move/ sit/ dance in. The cut outs and navy in the bottom have a nice change to simple black. Also can easily be worn without a bra, but I chose stick in "cupcakes" to add a little something (you wouldn't be able to wear a normal bra without seeing it).

I received so many compliments on the fit of the dress.

This dress was perfect. No hesitations about going bra-less, which is rare. The length was perfect with 4in platform heels. I'm very short, so I knew it was a risk. Formal military events can be difficult to dress for. This dress managed to be sexy, but because of its dark colors it was conservative enough to not look out of place.

Beautiful dress. I loved it and got so many compliments

I usually am between a 4 and a 6 but I wore the 4. The material is stretchy on the bottom part, but the top part is not really stretchy. I'm not a busty person so the 4 was better for me but if I was bustier it wouldn't have fit. The size difference between the 4 and the 6 was minimal in the skirt but there was a big difference in the bust area, so if you're busty I would size up. The dress is super flattering and really shows off your curves. Totally want to rent this again.

Sexy and classy!

I rented this dress for a fundraising gala. It was absolutely beautiful and I got tons of compliments! The 4 was a little snug, but I ultimately chose to wear it over the 6. It fit well enough that I didn't need to wear a bra. Very happy with this dress!

Rented this for my daughters prom and it was stunning. Fit wonderfully with the exception of the straps being a little loose. We had to use tape to keep them from lifting. Aside from that, beautiful!

Beautiful dress, size up

This was a gorgeous, easy to wear dress, perfect for a black tie wedding. I typically always wear a size 6 but listened to the reviews and went with an 8 which fit perfectly. Didn't need a bra and felt totally comfortable all night - easy to dance in and a good mix of sexy and formal.

Stunning dress!

I usually wear size 0 and size 2, but I fit into the 4R just right. I am glad I found this dress since it was the only dress available at the Georgetown Rent The Runway store close to my size. I felt AMAZINGLY beautiful and got compliments all night!!!. I didn't have to wear a bra and I didn't feel like the girls were going to come out at any time. I LOVED this dress and would wear it again! Do yourself a favor and order this dress. You will not regret it!

Beautiful dress- but not if you have anything bigger than a B cup!

This is a gorgeous dress, but not made for someone with a chest. I am a C cup and the underside of my breasts were visible in the cut outs of the dress. Also, I'm tall and the waist of this did not hit in the right spot for me. It is beautifully made and the materials are lovely, it just wasn't the right dress for this tall girl with some curves up top!

Edgy. Unique. Hugs in the right places. Forgiving through the skirt area.

The size runs small at the top, so I do not recommend it for big busted women. You would need to size up 2 sizes if you have a big chest. I ended up wearing the 6R instead of the 4R because the top part was too small, although the 4R fits through the hips and waist. I'm not into ruffles and super feminine dresses at the moment and this edgy look was perfect. I paired it with navy blue dangly earrings for a minimalist look. The dress hit just right. I am 5'4" and wore 4.5 in. heels.

Home try-on

I received this Cynthia Rowley along with a few others to try on at home after the Flatiron store didn't have the gowns I'd requested for my appointment. (Side note: RTR customer service and every single girl that works at the Flatiron store is AMAZING!! Thank you ladies!) I was renting for a charity gala, so the cutouts were a bit too much for the venue. Although it fit fairly well (you WILL need someone to zip you - I gave up 75% of the way there!), this dress is not intended for busty women. I have no doubt that this dress would look tasteful and classy on someone with a smaller chest, but unfortunately my bust size was not right for it.

gorgeous

Loved the dress once I got the right size. originally ordered a 4 and 6... the 6 had no chance of zipping over my chest, and the regular length was above my ankles. Do not get a regular unless you are 5'3 TOPS. The 8L fit perfectly (although there was some underboob action, it wasn't really visible). It was really simple and elegant. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone above a C/D bra cup, and I recommend going at least a size up unless you are an A cup. Sizing issues aside, it was an awesome dress.

Was it above your ankles with heels on? And if so, how high were your heels? Thanks in advance!

Beautiful and sexy dress

This dress does run small, but it needs to. I ended up wearing a gel bra that doesn't require straps and never felt like anything was going to move anywhere. The cutouts give this dress just enough skin to make it interesting to look at. I don't usually wear long dresses but I loved the balance this dress had. Be aware that the dress hanging straps might sneak out between the dress straps so tuck them well!

I didn't wear the dress because the bust was was too revealing in the bust.

I would only rent this dress if you are small-chested. The cutouts are cut pretty high so that the bottom of your breasts show if you have C cup or more. It may have worked if I ordered a size up, but you can't wear a bra, and I knew I would be uncomfortable the whole night with it being so tight/revealing on top.

It was a beautiful dress, but I didn't end up wearing it.

The black and navy are very beautiful in person. I didn't wear it because it was a bit small, especially in the chest. I'm a 34C and the top had way too much under-boob cleavage exposed for my liking. It would be a beautiful dress for a smaller chested woman.

Did not choose it

I rented this dress for Barrister's Ball and had to quickly find an alternative. It looked horrible on. The material on top is thick and rather quilted, but it did absolutely nothing for my chest (I don't have much of one to begin with). The material on the skirt part is extremely clingy but in all the wrong ways. It showed every lump and bump on my body and looked horrible on. I would not recommend this dress.

In love

This dress is very flattering. I am 5'8 with flat chest and 150 pounds. The long was not long enough for 3 inch heels. The dress did not touch the floor but I didn't mind because the dress was amazing. I would have worn the bigger size for comfort but the zipper did not work so I wore the size 8. It was tight but flattering. I recomend wearing biker short spanks if you can. I would order this dress again. I loved it.

SEXY and classy dress!

This dress made me feel sexy and beautiful! It is totally different from any other black dresses. I had to use the sticky bra because the regular one would show through the cut outs on the side. It was a bit long even with 3 inch heels. However, other than that, it fit beautifully!

I usually am a 4/6 size depending on the designers. the reviews I read said it ran small. I was going to order a 6 but chose to try on the dress in one of their locations. I'm glad I did because size 8 fit me like a glove! Got many compliments, felt sexy, not trashy! recommend the dress but u have to go 2 sizes up!

Great twist on a classic black dress that got tons of compliments. Classy but eyecatching.

Fits small. Great for large bust but did not have to wear a bra (and everything stayed in place). Tons of compliments. Extremely comfortable.

Perfect for a black tie wedding

I loved this dress! I ended up wearing the backup size because the dress runs a little small around the rib cage, but the 6L fit like a glove. I was worried about the length but I still ended up wearing 2 inch heels with it on my 5'11" frame. I could have gone with flats and the dress would have brushed the floor. I would highly recommend this dress - it's a show stopper!

I had a black tie charity event to attend, and no gown to go with it.

The dress is beautiful - this picture doesn't even look that great, but it looked very flattering on. BUT it runs small, particularly in the upper back/chest area since there's no real stretch or 'give.' I was glad the 8L ended up working, though I usually am a size 6. The L wasn't too long by any means with heels (3"). No bra needed, but wore some stick ons to keep everything held in.

Beautiful dress! Fits great and the cutouts are sexy without being over the top!

I rented this for a black tie gala. I wanted something a little different and the cutouts definitely made this dress unique. I didn't have to wear a bra, which I loved. I'm 5'7" and to wear the heels I wanted, I needed to go with the long. I'm usually a size 2, but the 4 definitely worked better (larger size worked better for the lower stomach area and for the length). One word of warning, I had to use some fashion tape to make sure there was no "underboob" exposure! I'm smaller chested, so the top wasn't as snug as I wanted to keep everything in place, but a little fashion tape fixed that easily. Got many compliments!

Favorite rental ever!

This dress was stunning! I wore the larger back up size which is 1 size up from my usual because it fit better on the bust area. The fabric around the bust is thick and supportive enough to not worry about wearing a bra and I didn't have the "underboob" issue that some people warned about. The long length was perfect for my height and allowed me to still wear heels. I got so many compliments on this dress and would love to rent it again!

Besides this dress just being stunning and sexy. It was comfortable. I felt gorgeous all night.

I ordered a 4L and it was perfect length but wouldn't zip all the way and 6R and it was too short and too snug to zip all the way up. RTR sent me the 8L (to another state for the wedding, hoping it would get there in time and fit) and it arrived at 10am and fit beautifully.

Sexy but classy style

This dress ended up looking great, but it is definitely a challenging fit. The top of the 2R did not cover enough at all. The top of the 4R was just a bit big. I taped it in place and it worked, but it was a delicate balance! If you order this dress, I highly recommend getting a back up style because there is a possibility that the top will not fit.

A great time in a beautiful dress!

This is a great dress for a black tie/ black tie optional wedding. I got a lot of compliments on it and it was easy to move around in, because the material at the bottom of the dress is stretchy. However, you definitely need to size up in this dress- I am almost always a size 0 and I wore the 2R. The material shows every bump and curve! I would definitely recommend Spanx, even for petite women. There were a few fit issues- the seams at the sides of the dress and around the zipper in the back didn't lie completely flat, but it wasn't very noticeable since the fabric is dark.

Literally the worst!

I rented this for a gala I have coming up - I wanted to give myself enough time to get the "right" dress. Thank goodness I did! I tried this one and was horrified to see that it downplayed my chest and was like a gleaming neon sign to my stomach and hips. If you have any anxieties about your hip area this is NOT the dress for you. I am a usual size 4-6 L but this dress did NOT do me any favors (hence no photo!)

Runs very small on top. Couldn't even zip it up!

This dress is not super flattering for people with pear shape/hour glass body types. It ran very small as well. I couldn't zip up the dress, which was disappointing because the cut is so sexy and the color blocking is cool. If you order this dress, size up!

Received so many compliments on this. It was a gorgeous fit. The cut outs are high enough on your ribs that it is flattering on everyone.
