Elegant and different!

This dress fit beautifully. The underside slip is a little longer in person than on the model (it hit me at mid-thigh), and was perfectly appropriate for the black tie wedding we attended. I'm 5.5, 120 lb and a 34C. I got compliments all night...

Great, comfortable dress - renting again

I have an hourglass figure and feel that I have large hips. It looked great overall but more importantly I felt very comfortable and rented it for the following weekend. Received many compliments and told others about RTR.

Very easy process!!

Fit very nicely. Was also very comfortable and flattering. Ran true to size and looked great. I wore 3 inch heels and the length was perfect for me. Got a ton of compliments. Wonderful experience!!

Compliments all night!!

This dress was gorgeous! RTR didn't have a 0 available so I opted for the 2. It was a little big in the waist but good for my chest and butt. The material doesn't stretch much but that made it very flattering. People complimented the dress all night long! This dress is a little long - I am 5'2 and with my 5 inch heels it was the perfect length. I highly recommend this dress for a fall/winter event!

Stylist review!

Wore this gown the Thursday before Halloween. This dress is very unique and fun. Modern Morticia couldn't be a better name. It runs pretty true to size, but be sure someone is with you when you put it on because it's a bit difficult to zip up! I ordered the 0L and am 5'7" and wore a 2 inch heeled boot.

Great look and different spin on a black dress!

I wanted to go with a black dress for my friends wedding but didn't want something boring so this was a great option. It was flattering and comfortable. Only downside was that it was a little long even with heels (I'm 5'9) and the lace occasionally got stuck in my heel when walking if I didn't pick up the dress. Besides that I definitely recommend this dress with a pop of color statement necklace!

The lace is very delicate and the under black slip was a bit short at times. Overall thought I love this dress

Wore this to a formal murder mystery party. Fit perfectly, so comfortable, & got so many compliments

For my birthday, I held an elegant murder mystery party at my house. Suggested attire was formal & black. The dress arrived on time, fit perfectly, and was really comfortable. I was worried it may be itchy, but it wasn't at all, it felt wonderful. I got more compliments on this dress than almost any dress I've ever worn! I'm 5'9" and wore the size 2L, paired with 3 inch heels it was still long enough.

Unique and very flattering dress perfect for a formal affair. Got SOO many compliments!!!

I rented this dress last minute for a black tie event in the city. I am normally a size 4 but since I decided to rent so last minute the size 4 was not available. I ended up getting a 6R which was a little big over the hips and in the arms but it wasn't too noticeable and quite frankly it was really nice to not have a super tight dress when you have to sit down for a 3 hour dinner and award show. The length of the dress was a little short for me as I was wearing 4" heels with a 1" platform so if I would rent this dress again I would go for a 4L in size. Overall I'm really happy with the dress and would recommend it for any formal affair such as a winter gala, wedding, holiday party etc.

The perfect dress to standout a little in a conservatively dressed crowd at a fundraising dinner.

The dress was so easy to wear and received numerous compliments from both men and women. It was the perfect dress for an event where I was on the younger end of the age spectrum, so I did not want to stick out with something too flashy but at the same did not want something too stodgy. I am only 5'4" and with 4.5 inch platform heels, I was JUST tall enough to keep the dress off the floor. Wish I were a little taller so that the dress fit like on the model in the photo, but that is not the dress' fault so I did not take star off for that.

I loved this dress! I felt so pretty and classy in it. Everyone loved/ asked where I got it from!

The dress fit perfectly. It was a little tight on my chest area, I have a 36D, but everywhere else fit really nice. I got the long and i am 5'7 & with heels it was perfect, just barely touched the floor. I was worried about my love handles sticking out, but I wore spanks and the dress itself really slims you down!

So many compliments

I absolutely loved this dress! I wore it for NYE. It is elegant, glamorous, and has a retro or hippie chic look to it. I dressed it down with ankle boots and a long necklace. I wish I didn't have to send it back!! Super flattering!

Dress was perfect! Used if for my anniversary photo shoot and it was to DIE FOR! So obsessed!

I wanted it long, so the 4L was perfect for me with heels. Made it a bit more dramatic feeling.

The little black dress that stands out!

This dress for a work-related benefit event party...it can be dressed up with right jewels for a more formal occasion or worn to cocktail parties as well, depending on how you style it. It does run a little small, so one size up was a perfect fit, while the length fell nearly at my ankle with four-inch heels.

Complementary gum and lotion sealed the deal.

I loved this dress. I had a hard time sending it back. I am very short and was afraid this would be too long. With very tall shoes (which I am accustom to) this was not a problem. It was not uncomfortably tight, but extremely form fitting. I will definitely rent this dress again.

It was affordable, convenient, and I got tons of compliments on the dress! No stress.

It fits perfectly. I'm 5'3 and the 2R fit me perfectly. I wore heels 5 inches tall and the dress didn't drag. It was cool out and I was still warm and super comfortable. Will be doing this much more!

Super great style, wear and fit! Highly recommended for a special occasion.

Fit was perfect - almost too perfect. This was my first rental, ever, and thankful I decided against purchasing a new dress for what would inevitably be worn once. However, my only complaint was that the dress I received looked a bit "worn."

This is a beautiful dress! I wore this for a Venetian masquerade gala and got tons of compliments! I like its unique look. I'm 5'5ish and wore 100mm heels and the length was perfect!

Different and fun, perfect for a wedding guest!

Able to wear a regular bra underneath which helps make me very comfortable- this dress covers you up but is very fitted. It's a great mix of classy with that lace and high neck, but super sexy with the underneath hem being pretty short! I got a lot of compliments! The only minor things to watch out for is the R was pretty short- I am 5'3 and with my high heels it was a touch too short, but really not an issue. The short dress with the long lace hem is a red carpet look I've always wanted to try. I definitely recommend this dress it is a lot of fun to wear!

So sexy but still classy! Perfection! My fav RTR so far!

I LOVED this dress. It fit perfectly and the lace made it super flirty - my BF couldn't keep his hands off me! The place we went wasn't super fancy but I didn't feel overdressed at all, it's the perfect mix of trendy and sophisticated. It was freezing so I paired with thigh-hi boots and stayed warm all night. Tons of compliments! Will definitely be renting again!

If you are curvy, go up a size or 2 and make sure you have on underwear.

I did not wear the dress to the event. I usually wear an 8 but I went with a 10 and it still did not fit. I think if you are a less curvy woman go a size up and if you are curvy go up 2 sizes. The dress itself is beautiful but is extremely short. if you are curvy it will be significantly shorter and you will be flashing people when you move.

Stunning!

The dress I am wearing in the picture is not the exact same dress the model is wearing. I tried on the dress the model is wearing and that lead me to order it. It fitted nicely in the store. However what arrived was different; but still beautiful nonetheless. I actually like the replica better. I tried it on and found that the dress rides up a bit on me. There seemed to be extra fabric in my lower back area. I had to tug it down on occasion for it to contour to my body like it should. This did not stop the compliments from coming. I was stopped and admired all night. No one at the event had on anything like it. It was unique, attention grabbing, and beautiful. I felt really good in it. It didn't make me feel like an old woman because of the lace or long sleeves. I felt age appropriate, sexy and sophisticated. I wouldn't change anything about it. I only had one issue, my bust size is 34C and my shoulders are strong. The top portion of the dress seemed a bit snug and when I initially put it on I was sure I was going to rip it. I really couldn't put my arms up comfortably to style my hair. However it wasn't so uncomfortable that I couldn't move. I did not feel restricted all night , maybe because I had no reason to put my hands up. So if you are going to dance make sure you select the right size. However, I would not have gone up a size because it fit the rest of my body fine. I would recommend this dress to others!

Perfect for formal but funky!

Being only 5'2", the length was a bit of an issue for me since I needed to wear flats - but since I rented it for a performance in a concert where I was standing in one place, the mobility was low on my priority list. Hard to see in the pic, but it was really fun how at first it came across as a simple long black lace dress, but then has the fun high-low leg twist. The guys in the band thought it was very sexy and fun! Got SO many compliments - would be very easy to dress up or dress down for any event. I will be renting again!

LOVE this dress!!!

Would totally rent this dress again. I wore it to a cocktail party during a wedding weekend. This dress was sort of (dare I say) sexy without being too showy/flashy. I'm only 5'5" so I was worried that the 8L (only size available) would be too long, but with some 3.5 inch platforms I was fine. I even had some girls yell at me from across the street while out that night "Hey girrrrl! I love your dress!!!" Of course I shouted back "Rent The Runway!!" What a moment, hahaha. Now I just need to figure out where I can buy this one...

Stood out in a sea of sparkly prom dresses

This dress was amazing!! It was my back up choice, but I'm so so glad I ended up going with this one! It was gorgeous and different, with tons of adorable little details like little buttons on the sleeves. It was totally fine to dance in, and the sleeves weren't constricting at all. I'm 5'8" and wore flats, and the long size was about two inches too long, but still beautiful. Everybody loved it, and so did I. It was weird to wear a dress that showed off the part of my body I'm the most self conscious about (my stomach), but I'm so glad I did it anyway, because it was stunning.

This is the first time I looked forward to getting ready for a wedding!

This dress fit beautifully and made me feel like the best dressed person at the event! It also hid a multitude of post-pregnancy body issues so I was thankful for that. It was slimming, elegant and a unique take on a classic black dress.

It is a bit formfitting while still flattering. Length is perfect. The lace is smooth & not scratchy. It's a lovely dress.

This dress was great for a black tie wedding, and perfect for heels. This is a no-worries dress.

I originally rented this dress because I was attending a wedding and needed to hide a large tattoo on my back. This dress was one of the few that had a full back, and was also something that I found to fit my style. I was worried about finding the right size so I ordered this and an 8R, but this one fit perfectly. The length was perfect for heels too. The only issues I had were the arms were a little tight up top, so when I started dancing I couldn't lift my arms completely above my head. And there was a little bunching over the butt area, but I loved this dress so much and I got complimented as well. Highly recommended!

I'm 5'2, 100lbs, 34c chest, and a size 0R fit me perfectly! I wore this dress to my boyfriends MP military ball and received tons of complements! With the dress I wore 5in heels and the dress didn't drag the floor..perfect length! I will most definitely be renting more dresses in the future, LOVE IT!!!!

I felt amazing in this dress!

My normal size fit perfectly though it was a bit shorter than I would have liked. I am 5'6' and wear a 2. I was wearing 4 inch heels and the dress showed my shoes/feet completely. Other than that, I loved everything about it! I got so many compliments throughout the night. The quality was great too. Definitely recommend!

Did not wear.

The 10R was not available and I wore the Substitute, Golden Goddess. The 12R was a little big and there was a funny bunch at the bottom of the zipper. I will order it again as it looked beautiful on. Very sexy but also covered up sufficiently. Great if you have good legs!!

Perfect for a fall wedding

I wore this dress to an outdoor wedding in South Carolina. I typically wear a 0 but it was too tight... the 2 fit perfectly. The "dress" underneath can feel a bit short but doesn't look too scandalous because of the long lace. I received so many complements on this dress and really loved it!

Pretty but wouldn't zip

The reviews pointed me to size up due to my large chest, but there was only one size available, my normal size. This dress was beautiful, but surprisingly short... and it wouldn't zip. Luckily I ordered this as a backup to another dress and had something else to wear which ended up being fabulous. I am not conservative, but I probably would have felt uncomfortable wearing this to my event even if it had fit properly due to the short underlayer.

It was fashionable but still could fit into be a semi-formal attire.

True to the size. But recommend to match with higher heels. I was wearing that with my 2inches heels and the dress was kind of longer and floor touching. Should have looked better if I were wearing a higher one.
