Great Dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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.

stylist review

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
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

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small

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!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Beautiful Dress! Very flattering!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
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.

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!

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.

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.

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

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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!

Nude lace really caught my husband's eye!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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!

Gorgeous in person, but details hidden in pictures!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
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!

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.

Beautiful Dress!

Overall fit: Small

Loved this dress! I ordered a 2 and a 4 (I really should have ordered 4 and 6). The 4 fit great but very tight around the waist. It was hard to dance and sit down. As the night went on, it stretched out a bit and it was a little better. I should have ordered a 6. Overall... great dress!

I read the reviews about this dress, so I knew to order a size up. I usually wear a 4 or 6, but in this case I ordered a 6 and 8. Didn't matter - still too small! Really pretty dress though. I liked the material and length was good. Pretty disappointed with the sizing - RTR should really adjust this!

I received this dress from RTR when the original dress I had ordered was returned damaged in my size. RTR was fantastic, e-mailing me to let me know of the problem and informing me they were sending a replacement dress. The dress was cute and fit very well, but the lace mock cutout on the sides just isn't me. I didn't feel it was age appropriate, either. This is would be a great dress for a twenty-something.

Overall fit: True to Size

This dress fit great and I really liked it, especially for a November wedding. However, it was more fitted/tight around your hips and thighs so it made it a little difficult to sit, get in and out of cars, etc. You really had to be careful and could not take big steps. Nevertheless, it was still a great dress and I felt very confident and sexy in it all night!

It was perfect for the Nutcracker!

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Other
I rented this dress to wear to the Houston Nutcracker. It was absolutely perfect for the occasion. Not too much and not too little. It was just perfect! I am usually a "0" in size, so I rented both a "0" and a "2". I fit in a "0", but felt more comfortable in a "2". The lace seemed to fit this time of the year and the gold zipper added. I wore a little beige bag and black pumps. I would definitely recommend this dress!

Disappointing

Size worn: NONE
Rented for: Party
This dress runs incredible small. I would recommend ordering two sizes up from your typical size. I ordered a 6 & 8 and neither fit me. I did not have the option of RTR overnighting a bigger size because they were closed by the time the dress was delivered . My last two RTR experiences have been disappointing all around.

This dress is very nice, but unfortunately I could not get a chance to wear it because it runs very small. I am normally a size 4/6 in dresses. Read the other reviews, i thought i would be out with a 6. I couldn't even get the dress pass my thighs. The 8 or even maybe the 10 would have done well with me.

Not your average LBD!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress is TINY. I can't remember the last time I wore a size 2. The zero had no chance and the 2 was super tight and short. May have been better suited for a night out rather than a formal dinner party. Regardless, the lace accents were very pretty and definitely stepped it up. If I rent again I definitely will be ordering a size 4.

Great dress. Very classic and romantic. Safe and effortless dress, however I did find it to be a bit restrictive on the dance floor for major dancing. Mainly in the skirt/ thigh area. Dress is very comfortable and there was no adjusting, or creeping up the whole night.

For people who have a curvier body, I wouldn't recommend this dress. It will make you look like a sausage. It is very tight to fit into. But if you have a slimmer, more athletic body, wear this. Trust me. Very complementing to certain areas.

I am usually a size 0 or 2; thus I had ordered a size 0 and 2 of this dress. But none of them fitted me! The dress was so small. I'm not even sure if the next size (4) would have fitted be... I think I might have actually needed a 6. I would recommend ordering a few sizes over what you usually wear. Apart from that, the dress looks amazing. The lace is very delicate.

I got so many compliments on this dress. At the wedding and from pictures. The dress runs true to size, but I guess could be on the small side. I'm usually a 2 or 4, and after reading the reviews ordered a 4 and a 6. The 4 fit great, but bc it was a wedding, I went with the 6 bc it had a little more length and the fit was overall the same. Loved this dress!!

RUNS SMALL! I always wear a 4, and when I put the 6 on I knew there was no way I'd have been able to get into the 4. Was very happy I ordered a size up. Nice dress, but nothing super special. I got this as a backup dress, so I was happy to not have any problems!

Unique LBD with beautiful detail but some sizing issues

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Wedding
Pros: Lace detail is beautiful and fun to wear. Got lots of compliments. Not to short and not too long with higher neckline makes it great for a semi-formal event/wedding! Still loved wearing it despite the fit cons! Cons: A size too small in the hips and arms but regular sized in the waist. After reading reviews I correctly ordered a size up (usually even a 0 is big on me). The size up was very tight in the hips and around my arms, but loose in the waist. It's an awkward fit if you have a much smaller waist than hips.
