Amazing Fabric
Fabric was snug and flattering - covers everything without Spanx! Didn't love the the neck since it felt a little tight, but the dress looked amazing on. A little hard to walk in but worth it.

Perfect fit and very flattering
Let me start off by saying everyone else's reviews were spot on. I always filter to find other people my size and based my decision on that. I normally wear a 0, but I ordered a 2 based on everyone else's recommendation. And I tried to select the 0 as my backup size just in case, but it wasn't available. This was the only time I've ever ordered a dress from RTR not having the backup size, but everything worked out perfect because the 2 fit like a glove. I received so many compliments. I usually like dresses that are short and tight. This was a little longer than I would've normally worn, but I felt like it was very appropriate for a wedding.

Compliments all night long!
Fit: Tight fit, thick material with some stretch, great quality. I'm 5'2" and 124 lbs., 34B, built a short and stout. The 4 was a bit tight, so I'm glad I got the 6 as a backup. This allowed some play for mobility and dinner. Do note that the slit in the skirt is not that big so walking was a little restricted, but not bad, Pros: Simple design yet gorgeous without being trashy/inappropriate. Beautiful color and cut for an outdoor, summer evening wedding. Cons: The dresses came with a very strong chemical odor (cleaning chems?). Steaming helped remove some of the odor but most of it lingered. I suppose you could have covered it up with perfume but I avoid using scented products. You could tell the dress was used (dark spot, snag, repair work was done on the collar detail), but it was still in decent shape Overall: I got many compliments, the BF was very pleased and I felt good in this dress.

Got so many compliments on this beautiful dress
Beautiful dress, fit tight all the way down to the knee so I would suggest going up a size for your back up. I am usually a 0-2 and wore a size 4. Really loved the neckline and the color of the dress. The fabric was thick and had little give

Perfect for husbands work Christmas party!
As many of the reviews that I have read stated, this dress definitely runs small! But, it was absolutely perfect! I am typically a size 4 (sometimes a size 6) and so I wanted to order a 6 with a back up size 8. The only size available to rent was a size 6, so I was really nervous when I took the chance of ordering without any backup size or dress. However, it fit like a glove! I would have liked to see how the 8 fit, especially because I have wide hips... it may have fit a little more comfortably. But the size 6 did the job! The material is so nice and thick... after having two kids I was super nervous with it being so tight around the stomach, but it held everything in! When I sat down for dinner it became tight around the neck area, but other than that it fit fine. Walking around, my knees could barely come apart, there is no give at all. But I got used to it and spent most of the night on the dance floor.... walking up and down the stairs was a little tricky! Haha. I would definitely rent this dress again, I received lots of compliments and was so happy to be able to wear it to this event. I would highly recommend it for others, and if possible, suggest ordering a size up with a backup dress 2 sizes up.

Great Dress...BUTT....
This dress is very simple yet sexy. The collar is not ivory as what it seems in the stock photos, but more of a light taupe "wood grain" style bead. It looks great, but I was under the impression the beads were more of an ivory or eggshell color. The material does not have any stretch, the length is perfect, but the hem is a tad too narrow even with the kick slit in the back. Now, I do not have a big butt, but I do have a nice "bump." Luckily I tried to pull the dress up to my waist to fix my panties when I tried this dress on. I could NOT get it over my butt! This means had I worn this dress I would have had to unzip the back and pull the dress down to my ankles to go to the bathroom! There was absolutely no way I could get this dress up over my butt! Bad design there for a gal with a "normal" booty. I am 5'5" and weighed in at 127 that day. My chest is 33," waist is 27" and my hips/butt at the largest point is 38."

Surprise Trip to NYC
This dress is Tight: And It is Beautiful. The fabric is thick enough to be forgiving over any small flaws. It is very comfortable, once you wiggle it on. Beware of going to the bathroom - it might slide right on, but it is difficult to pull up. Best method it to take it off.

So cool!
Obsessed with this dress. I wore it to my friend's 30th birthday party. The shape is extremely flattering and the fabric has just the right amount of stretch and weight - it would look great on anyone. I'm 5'8" and it was the perfect length, hit just above the knee which I liked because it's so fitted. I paired with the Jude Snake clutch by House of Harlow. Amazing look, I can't wait to wear it again!
ramonaNovember 8, 2013
how was the slit in the back? Did you have any issues with it being too open or restrictive?
JaneNovember 8, 2013
No, I didn't have any issues with the slit. It was actually great because the dress is pretty long and very fitted, so it made the dress easy to move/walk in.

Didn't end up wearing it. I usually wear a size 4 and I didn't even fit in the size 6. It runs very small and if you have hips, it won't fit.

Fun NYE dress!
I really wish I had a full picture of this dress but I only ended up with three photos that people took from their phones. In a dark room. Oh well. Loved the dress. I can often times size down to a 4 but there would never have been any chance of that happening with this dress (which interestingly enough I did the last time I rented from this designer). My husband said he thought it looked like it was made for me. Super sweet. But it did fit just perfectly. Wouldn't have looked right any bigger. If you're considering renting this, I believe opting on the side of next size up for the second dress, to be safe.

PTL for RTR customer service
the second i slipped on this dress it was obvious it was just too tight.. since i was looking for something comfortable that i could dance in, i emailed the RTR reps and they immediately sent me a replacement dress! it was such a beautiful dress and i'll be renting again for sure.. keeping in mind to size up!

I stood out in this dress at my friend's annual Valentine's day party. Stunner!
This dress runs very small. I originally ordered this dress for my birthday in January but ended up being too sick to go out. I had a size 0 & 2 sent and both were too small. I ended up ordering the 4 for my second attempt. This dress has no stretch and thick seams along the sides - almost as if someone took it in. The cut is great for those of us who have toned arms. The decorative neckline is gorgeous. All my girlfriends loved this dress.. And all my boyfriend could say was "wow!"

Just too tight to be comfortable.
The dress was gorgeous, but extremely tight. I fit into the 4 (but barely). They didn't have a 6 available so I ended up wearing a different dress, but I would have worn the 6 if was available!

The dress runs really small and without a stylist to help, I couldn't wear the dress
Due to the new policies that RTR has created (mainly no free second size) combined with the fact that there is no live help anymore, I rented this dress and it ended up being too small. I was unable to wear this dress since I had no backup size and no stylist to assist me with ordering the correct size. I normally wear a size 2 or 4. It I would have had assistance or a backup size, then this dress would have been stunning! I basically wasted over $200 renting this dress and two others that I was also unable to wear due to sizing. RTR is also charging for shipping, even if you purchased the RTR Pro package where you pay up front so that you don't get charged shipping. I used to love this company and this service, but after watching my $200 go down the drain last weekend and have no dresses to wear for my baby shower and formal events, I am definitely not a fan of the companies new policies and will definitely have to re-evaluate renting again!

Classy and sexy at the same time
Fits very snug and shows every curve but the fabric is stretchy enough to still be comfortable. I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 because a few of the beads on the neckline were loose and hanging. Received compliments all night on the dress.

Beautiful dress that stood out from the crowd
Runs small and tight and had to go with my back up size. Shapeware was a necessity given the tightness of the sheath. Absolutely loved the color and neckline. I received so many compliments all night long!

Stunning!
This was actually my first time renting from Rent the Runway & this was also my 2nd choice dress. This dress really works on emphasizing the best parts of your body! It really did give me a petite waist and just that va va voom hourglass figure. The dress is not lined but it has a really nice thick material that hides what one might consider "imperfections." I suggest wearing this dress with some ivory colored D'orsay styled heels for a dramatic affect and perhaps a ring or some earings since its kind of hard to match up any other jewelry to the embellished neckline. I wore this dress for a pageant interview and I received compliments from both my fellow competitors and the judges, I was definitely one of the best dressed there, haha! I would certainly recommend this dress for any occasion, & I will most definitely be renting dresses from here again ;)

Sexy, comfy, great color!
I rented this dress for my girlfriend's engagement party. It was very comfortable while still being form fitting. I have a larger bust and a small waist, so it is not always easy to find dresses that accommodate both.... this one fit like a glove! I would have been comfortable wearing this to a more formal event, like a wedding, as well. This was my first RTR experience, and I will definitely rent again!

Very tight. Gorgeous & flattering, but hard to move in. Don't wear it dancing.
The dress is gorgeous. Sucks you in completely so you look very skinny. Very difficult to move in (except walking). Don't wear it dancing! Perfect for an Auction or dinner. You will feel like a runway model when you slip this on. They did not have the next size up, when I ordered...but I would recommend ordering 2 sizes (your size & 1 size up!!).

Fits like a GEM!
This dress is stunning. I did not originally order it, but after my original dress was damaged, this was sent and I have to say I LOVED IT! The cut in the arms was beautiful and makes toned arms look even better, the color (like merlot) was complimentary and the length on me, was sofisticated. Although I felt like when I walked it wrinkled up a bit at the hips and was pulling down to look sleek in pictures, it overall fit well! and look stunning!

I wore this dress to a benefit dinner attended by very fashionable, artistic people.
This dress fit like a glove and was super flattering and slimming for my hourglass, athletic figure. It is an easy dress to wear and hugs / slims you in all the right places. The color is very sophisticated and elegant for evening. The detail in the sewn-in choker detail looks rich and cool. This halter cut is especially flattering. While body-conscious, the dress length on my height (5'4") hit right above the knee, so it looked elegant and sexy at the same time. I received many compliments, and I am searching for a way to buy this dress, as I could easily see myself going back to it again and again. Perfection!

Amazing fabric and fit
The color was nice but maybe a little too burgundy/deep wine color. I generally prefer more bright, happy, jewel tones. The necklace collar was unique but very high and maybe a little snug, I would have preferred to have the option to not have the embellishment and have the dress' quality tailoring and material speak for itself.
