Very classy and sexy dress.

Gorgeous and comfortable!

This dress fit me perfectly! I am 5'10' and the 6L was long enough to wear small heels. I wore a Nubra with this dress and it worked perfectly. I got compliments all night long. Very glamorous dress!

Beautiful dress!

Really like this dress. Was great for the wedding I attended. Fabric has a little stretch to it. Very comfortable if wearing for a long period of time, only a little discomfort with the beading rubbing on the under arm area but otherwise perfect for the occasion !

Dramatic dress

This dress was fun to wear and perfect for a New Year's Eve black tie wedding. You can't wear a real bra and I tried a couple of options before I settled on an adhesive bra. Because of the low sheer back you also can't wear any kind of shape wear, this isn't a huge deal because it's black but it is not totally forgiving.

Great dress!

I loved this dress. I rented it for a wedding in November. My concerns were the length, which was fine in the 4R, the 2 may have been too short once I put my heels on, the slip underneath the dress tended to ride up and needed to be adjusted separate from the skirt overtop, and it would've been nice to be able to cut off the hanger straps, seeing as the dress is backless. I was worried all night that they were showing. And if you are a bit bustier, I wouldn't recommend this dress because there really is no way to wear a bra with it. It overall I would recommend it, I got a lot of compliments on it and felt great.

Gorgeous Gown

I rented this for my friend's wedding. I normally wear a 14, but I was able to fit the 12L! It was snug and fit my curves. The Fabric does have a give, which was great. The shoulder detail did leave scratches under my arms. I didn't wear a bra and felt comfortable with it. Everyone loved the sheer back of the gown. I was getting compliments all night and from my husband!

A beautiful backup. On the shorter side

This is a really figure flattering dress. Runs true to size and is really comfy, but I didn't end up wearing it because of how short it was. Only came to my ankles, which wouldn't work with heels.

Gorgeous and a class act!

I wore this to an Armed Forces Day banquet with numerous generals and admirals. I knew I had to wear something classy and elegant. This dress was absolutely perfect for the occasion. It fit like a glove and was the perfect length with a 3 inch heel. I felt like Grace Kelly in this dress! If there weren't so many dresses to rent on RTR, I would rent this one again in the future!

Gorgeous dress that's super comfortable

This was my back up dress but thankfully it was. The dress fit perfectly. My original dress didn't have my back up size, so I ordered this in the 12 and 14. Both fit, but I ended up wearing the 12 since it fit a little tighter and felt better. The back is see through most of the way down, so it doesn't allow for a bra. The dress was comfortable and fit me perfectly length wise without shoes. I'm on the shorter side, so that could be a problem for someone taller. Overall, I loved the dress

Beautiful dress, but too short and tight around the hips.

I was very happy with the look and feel of this dress, it definitely looks nice and expensive, but, as a pear shaped woman, it did not work for me. The dress was perfect from the waist up, but once it hit my hips / butt, it just clung in all the wrong places and when I walked, it would bunch up around my hips, after only walking a few steps. In addition to that problem, it was very short! I'm 5'4" and ordered the regular, but it was only long enough to wear flats with. I tried on my backup size, an 8R, and the hips fit exactly the same, but it was now too big in the waist. If you're big on the bottom and wanna show that off, this dress is stretchy and you can definitely do that, but for me it was very uncomfortable and too short.

Great dress! It was perfect!

It was a perfect fit. Very comfortable for the whole evening. It was a little long. I wore heels to make up for it.

This dress is elegant and comfortable. I wore it to my sister's wedding and got many compliments.

Should have worn the size up. As I look at the pictures, it could have been longer.

I had a dress to wear that matched the elegance and class of the gala!

I wore this dress to a business gala and it was absolutely perfect! The material does stretch a little and the subtle details are stunning. I received many compliments on the dress throughout the night. It was classy, profressional, and glamorous. I am 5'7" and with my heels the 6L was perfect. I have a muscular/athletic build and the sleeves fit me no problem and the dress was extremely comfortable to wear all night! Highly recommended.

Stunning dress with gorgeous back detail!

I rented this dress for my Firm's Holiday Party that was black-tie optional and it was stunning. The glitter sleeves don't rub, which is always a problem I have with sequins, and the mesh back detail gave it a sexy feel while still being elegant and timeless. I normally wear an 8-10 dress and the 10 fit perfect without being too clingy around my midsection, which is great for girls who want something fitted but not skin tight. I would totally rent this dress again in the future!

Very pretty gown.

I wore this gown to my first military ball. This was my back up dress because the original dress that i ordered did not fit. The rent the runway stylist gave me some choices. I am so glad that this one worked out. The details on the shoulders of the dress are very pretty and sparkle without being overly flashy. The illusion back is also very nice because it shows just enough skin to be sexy but still very classy and appropriate for the event. I could have probably gone with a size 8 but I wanted to be sure that the dress would fit with this being my last minute, day before the event dress. The material on the dress has a slight stretch to it and is heavy to help it hang smoothly.

I LOVED this dress!

Fit like a glove! I wore this dress to a black tie fundraiser and could not have been more comfortable in it. I'm 5"5' and wore 3' heals, which were perfect. Choose your undergarments wisely. I opted for an adhesive bra and it worked well for me.

I wore this to a black tie optional event.

I'm relatively petite (5'1", 100 lbs) and I ordered a 0P with the assumption that I would wear that one based on my height. Luckily I also got a 0R as a backup since I ended up wearing that one for the gala. The fit on both dresses was the same, but the 0P's lining was significantly longer than the outer dress fabric. I think it was more of an issue with the way that the dress was cleaned as the bottom hem of the 0P was also a little warped. Like I mentioned, the fit was perfect and completely true to size. The fabric has the right amount of snugness and stretch so that the dress hugs your body perfectly. I wore 3 inch heels with the 0R and the length ended up being about perfect to the ground. The dress is very flattering. I definitely recommend it for a formal evening out.

I rented this for an annual gala with my work.

This is a very beautiful and comfortable dress. I was so happy with it and received many compliments. It fits true to size. I was worried about it being too long but the regular fit perfectly with heels on my 5'-2" frame.

I wore this to a black tie gala with a Old Hollywood Glamour theme and it was stunning!

The dress is fitted, but very flattering even though I don't have the slimmest hips and butt. I would not choose this if I wasn't feeling good about my midsection, but spanx will help that. The sequin, lace detail around the shoulder and dramatic V in the back were subtle and conservative from far away, but I could tell were a sexy surprise up close and I got lots of compliments. I wore 3-3.5 inch strappy black heels, which were perfect for the length (I'm 5'4).
