Great Dress!
Ok so having lost about 10lbs for my upcoming wedding, I have been been much more on the side of a 2 than 4. This dress however, I definitely needed the 4. I am completely straight up and down, absolutely no butt and while I could have wedged myself into the 2, I certainly would not have been comfortable and potentially not able to sit down. The lace layer of this dress has absolutely no stretch so I would certainly recommend sizing up if you're in any way curvy. I could feel the tightness even in the 4 around my butt which was surprising. That said, the dress looked great, an understated sexy perfect for a wedding. I wore a more 'statement' style necklace for a little pizazz.

Runs very small
I usually have a hard time finding size 0 or X-small that fit, even 0) at BR can be hit or miss, but I could not zip up this dress. I looked lovely, but it does run small, order at least one size up, and 2 sizes for your extra.

Beautiful dress. Lace is fabulous. Shows off hourglass figure. Great for petites with a full bust
Hemline hits mid-thigh on my shorter stature. At first I thought it was too tight, but with Victoria's Secret shapewear it was fine. Would have been better to size up to a 4. The dress is completely line with nude-colored fabric. Received many compliments.

Sexy LBD
If you are looking for a showstopper LBD, this is it! I rented this as a my 2nd choice for a black-tie optional wedding, but did not wear it. It is very fitted, but in an intentional way. I would def recommend this for a Vegas weekend or a bachelorette bash. It could easily go along with girls wearing Hervé and be much more attractive. I hope to rent this frock again soon! Also, the gown was in amazing shape. No wear and tear!

stylist review
first of all, this dress is gorgeous in person! the lace is somewhat stretchy so its a really comfortable, curve hugging and flattering fit. I really liked the length- it was a bit shorter than I was expecting. This dress also runs at least a size small- I'm almost always a size 0 and found the 2 to be snug, and I'm not especially curvy. Great to wear with a standard bra, and also really easy to pair accessories with! Definitely size up in this one, and it's a total must rent!

Little black dress with a twist, perfect for any event
I love little black dresses. This dress was perfect for my sororities semi formal, I wish I could wear it again! It does run on the small size. I am not curvy and it was on the tight side for the fit. The lace layer is very unforgiving. But overall perfect dress that I would most certainly rent again.

Too Small Unfortunately
Didn't get to wear it, this was my "add on dress" so I only got one size, I rented the 10 and it was too small to zip and extremely short.

Beautiful lace dress
This dress is beautiful. I was surprised that it ran a little small but it was OK for the event I wore it to. You can also choose to go without a bra. I will rent this again for a dinner date or party. Beautiful lace accents.

Beautiful in person. Very sexy, tight fit.
I couldn't wear it. This was extremely tight. I am between a 6 and 8 and this dress was way too tight. It got the 8 and I just didn't feel confident enough to wear it. Plus this was not appropriate for my husband's Christmas party. I didn't feel it was right for the occasion. The lace detail is beautiful, but the nude underlay is more sexy than I wanted to be. Very pretty in person. SIZE up two sizes if you don't like form fitting. I probably should've gotten a 10 to be more comfortable.

Classy and beautiful!
Gorgeous dress and very high quality. As other reviewers have already mentioned, it does run small. I usually wear a size 0 comfortably, but this dress was definitely tight and a little hard to walk in. Still beautiful, but order a size up.

Too small, kind of dowdy
The 2 wasn't available, so despite reviews about it running small, I went for the 0 (I often wear a 0). It was too tight and made me look really unattractive and frumpy. the high neckline didn't help. Disappointing....the lace pattern looked so pretty in the picture....if you do get this dress, I'd get it for dinner/cocktails, definitely not dancing--not enough room to move.

Beautiful lacy dress!
It was beautiful and received a ton of compliments. Definitely take the fact that it "runs small" to heart, though! I usually wear a 2 or 4, and the 6 was what I ended up wearing in this dress.

Little Black Dress with a sexy twist!
Most important thing about this dress: IT RUNS SMALL! Every dress I have ever worn from Rent the Runway has been a 0. I ordered in a 2 and 4 of this dress and the 2 was not even an option. The dress did work out though and it looked beautiful! I wore it with nude shoes which tied in well with the underlay.

I did not like this dress
It ran very small. I typically wear a 2 or a 0. The 2 was entirely too tight. I thought the tan underlay would look classic but it looked inexpensive. I am a big fan of Haute Hippie but not this dress

Beautiful Dress! Very flattering!
When I first received the dress I was a little concerned that it was going to be too dressy/conservative for the birthday celebration that I was attending, however it runs small and is tightly fitted so it was appropriate for a night out. I sized up for my back up and was very happy that I did because I couldn't get the size 6 (my usual size) over my hips and thighs which are the smaller parts of my figure. The size 8 fit perfectly, it was tighter than I am typically comfortable with but the lace and the design are so flattering. I loved that it was so different from the traditional little black dress and stood out in a crowd.

The hips are SO narrow. The 2 fit my upper body perfectly, but I had to wear the 4 because of the hips and I still couldn't spread my legs!

Fit like a sexy glove
This was the PERFECT black dress. It accented all of my curves. It was definitely a head turning dress. The only thing is, for me, I have very athletic and muscular legs and a big bottom, the dress was right around the thighs and butt. I will absolutely rent this dress again though!

Way too tight.
Could not wear this dress. I wear between a 2 and 4 (more often a 2). After reading the reviews, I ordered the 4 and 6. The 6 was still too tight. Also, the lace has zero give, so the nude lining underneath bunches up and looks really bad. Customer Service was awesome though--they did help me find another dress and shipped in time for my event.

Great date dress, sexy and classy.
Definitely runs small. Had to wear a 10 and I'm usually a 6. Tight through the bust, but everywhere else fit normally. Pretty lace detail and nice material.

Really cute LBD
Fit really great and had a nice allusion with the lace. it bordered a little short for me but only bc it was my bosses wedding and I wanted a little more of a conservative length. Overall really cute!

Boring and way too tight
I am usually a size 8 and the 10 was too tight in the hips but I am a curvy girl with a booty. I wish the nude part of the dress wasn't so obvious. I wanted to create the illusion that it maybe sheer for some sexyness.

Tight but flattering fit!
The dress fit well, but I'm usually a 4 and it was pretty tight. I wore the 6 instead and I really enjoyed it. The lace overlay was slightly fraying at the edges which I wasn't a fan of, but it wasn't noticeable to anyone else.

Didn't wear it but loved it
It was a really nice dress I got a size 10 because it was supposed to be my backup, however the 10 fit best and normally I'm a size 6/8 ! It was really right around my thighs but I have a lot of leg muscle so that might be why, but it look nice on my body and made me look skinny. If the dress is small on, then it's not very flattering.

This dress was amazing for a dinner date. I am a petite, toned woman, and the dress fit perfectly. I also ate dinner while wearing the dress without a problem. This photo was taken after dinner :)

Great dress, classy and sexy
It definitely runs small. Get a size bigger, and it will fit a little smaller than your normal size. I wear a 0 comfortably, and the 2 was nice and snug. Lots of compliments- the lace looked great.

Was not flattering--I did not end up wearing this dress.
Not sure why, but this dress was not flattering. It fit but did not accentuate my hips and figure. The detailing of the lighter to darker contrast is also not as noticeable as it is in the photos. It was disappointing.

Super flattering...definitely made people pay attention!
Wore it for graduation and it looked great! Wasn't very stretchy though so became a little difficult when maneuvering around but also could have probably worn a bigger size...I would go up a size for the back up size because of the tightness but it was great and hugged my curves in the right places!

Nice (but small) black dress
I rented this dress for a wedding and because of previous reviews I ordered a size up than what I normally wear. I am 5'10" and weigh 130 pounds and I usually wear a size 2 or 4 so I ordered a size 4 and 6 with dress. The dress was supposed to come on Thursday but due to weather conditions it came Friday. Turns out, the 6 was too small! So I called about 1:30 on Friday and told them it was too small and they immediately gave me the option to overnight another dress. By 10:30 the next morning (the day of the wedding) I had this dress in a size 8. The 8 fit well but I was still surprised by how small this dress runs. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because you can tell this dress has been rented many times because the lace looks worn out up close. Great black dress, though!

Didn't end up wearing this style :-/
I usually wear an 8, ordered my backup as a 10.. Sadly even the 10 was too tight! It fit, but was not flattering, at all. It might have worked with spanx, but I just wasn't loving it. Other than size issues I really liked this dress! I will order again, but in a 12. Luckily I got a free backup style with my order and went with that dress. Definitely order up in this dress!!

Decided not to go with this dress. I"m normally a size 2, but even the size 4 was too small.
Looks better in pictures, looked very plain on. I am more mid-drift heavy and carry weight in my stomach. I think this is a great dress if you are blessed with a tiny waist and flat stomach.

NO BOOTIES ALLOWED
this dress looks so amazing on the model and i was so excited when i pulled it out of the bag. by the way, it came same day, which was so lucky. i also sized up significantly - i am usually a 6 and got the 8 and 10 because of the reviews on running small - but still no dice. the top was perfect in the 10 (i'm a 34D) but i could not even begin to get the dress past my hips/tush. so disappointed, but just beware that this a TRUE pencil skirt with no give.

Nude lace really caught my husband's eye!
It is very important that you go up at least one size for this dress. It is very tight, but eventually gives after some wear to allow for mobility. I am a true 8 and the 10 was good, but tight. All night, I wondered how different the 12 would be, but it wasn't available, so it doesn't matter. I loved how I looked and felt, so I was very happy with the rental. 4 stars instead of 5 because of the tightness; getting in and out of the car was a bit of a mission!

I actually rented this as my back up style and didn't end up needing it. It runs EXTREMELY small and I would recommend choosing 2 sizes bigger if you are an hourglass shape or have a large bust. Lovely dress, though!

Gorgeous in person, but details hidden in pictures!
The fit runs a bit small - I was nervous with other reviews of girls going up like 2-3 dress sizes, but I'm relatively athletic so I figured one dress size up in the 4 would be safe and it was! It's a good thing the 2 was too tight anyway, as it was kind of frayed at the ends of the lace detail. It was pretty noticeable to the point where even if the dress fit, I wouldn't want to wear it. The 4 you can tell was worn (of course) but not bad enough where I wouldn't wear it. I was getting so many compliments all night on the lace with the nude underlay, so it's disappointing none of my pics from the night show the detail. Regardless though, I'd wear it again. I'll sacrifice the pics to look great in person!

Powerfully pretty + provocative!
Really enjoyed wearing this dress, the black lace is super elegant with the delicate splash of flesh tone underlay. It runs a bit tight, I would have preferred wearing a size 8 and would opt for black hosiery instead of nude. This was my first time wearing a Haute Hippie piece, it was surprisingly sophisticated.
