Black tie wedding
I wore this for a black tie wedding in California. It fit perfectly and I would definitely rent again. The length was perfect for my 2.5" heels and the fabric was light enough for a hot October day!

Beautiful and elegant gown!
This was my backup size because my original size wasn't in stock. I'm only 5'0 so the Regular was definitely too long for me. However I liked this dress more than my backup dress so I just held it up when I walked. It was a beautiful dress that definitely flatters. It hugged in all the right places and was heavier material so hid any tummy you may be concerned about. Also didn't need to wear a bra. The high neckline with the open back and slit up the front was perfect balance of sexy and classy. I got so many compliments on the dress. Would definitely rent again if I had another wedding or formal event to attend!

Cant go wrong with a simple black dress! The open back and split in the middle was a plus!
material had stretch to it, the size 4R also fit (and was longer) but the size 2 fit better. I wore the 2R, my heels were very low, but the dress looked a little short in the picture. It worked out good though because it made the front middle split more visible which I loved. This was my first time wearing a black gown, and I loved it, it was elegant and beautiful.

I wish I could've worn this
I LOVED this dress online and when it showed up. But it runs incredibly small. I got a backup size up and it still wasn't even close to fitting. Unfortunately, they didn't have a larger size for immediate replacement so I couldn't wear it. The material felt like it would be nice and very slimming and the dress was gorgeous on the hanger, but I'd recommend ordering 2-3 sizes UP.

The dress was perfect for this formal event
The dress is a bit long for my height, but manageable with heels. It also got tight around my waist, but not unbearable.

Got a lot of compliments! Beautiful dress for a black tie or city/night time wedding.
I'm 5'7'' and I would say the length was perfect for 3 inch heels. Maybe just slightly shorter than I would have wanted, but only by 1/2 inch. I rented the 4R and the 2R as my back up and ended up going with the 2R because I liked how it was snug on my backside. Overall really beautiful dress and highly recommended!

I wore this for a black tie wedding. Ran a little small. I normally wear a 6 and the eight was a little tight but not enough to ruin the dress. I received compliments all night!

Loved this dress! Fit perfectly except it was long. Problem solved with a great pair of heels.
Nice fabric and cut. I loved how it was snug to accent my waist and curvys. Perfect dress for a formal occasion. Remember to buy high heels if you are on the shorter side and an invisible sticky bra.

Cute but went with a different option
This fit true to size bordering toward running small. I have a very small waist comparatively, and this barely zipped. I didn't wear it because I thought it looked a little too worn out in person. Would be ok, but the wedding I'm attending starts when it's still light out.

This dress was stunning. Perfect for a black tie wedding. Received so many compliments.
The dress ran pretty true to size. My only "issue" was with the chest area. You can't really wear a bra but I would suggest stick-ons. The dress makes the "ladies" look a little pointy.

Perfect dress for a black tie optional gala. The lace front and open back were classic.
I typically wear a size 4, but was glad I ordered a second size; I ended up wearing the larger size for a little more room. Being 5'7", I was able to wear 4 inch heels with the regular length dress.

Stunning
I wore this to a friend's wedding and I have never felt more confident before in my life! The dress is STUNNING and so flattering. I am consistently a size 4, so I was surprised when the 6 was a more comfortable, natural fit. I received so many compliments and absolutely adored this gown. The dress is heavy but nothing of concern or uncomfortable. The cut of the back is beautiful and my favorite part was the middle slit for sure. I wish I could own this dress.

Beautiful dress, perfect fit. Only issue - it was still very long despite my 4 inch heels. If you are on the shorter side -- petite would be better. Other than that, still a gorgeous dress and perfect for a formal event/wedding.

The dress was unique and beautiful! And classy yet sexy.
This dress was my back up dress and it came in and fit me perfectly! I'm 5,4 108 lbs. I received many compliments. I didn't have to wear a bra which was a huge plus for me because bra stickies can be a pain! It was a tad long but I wore 3 1/2 inch heels and it worked out. The slit in the front wasn't up too high and still allowed me to walk comfortably. The neck part was a little tight especially when I sat down so I had to make sure I pull the dress up a little before sitting so as not to pull on the fabric/neck piece. Overall, it was a perfect dress, and if I were rich, I'd buy it!

It fit perfectly; I actually want to buy it. I got compliments ALL night long and felt amazing.
Fabric is gorgeous and not very worn or tattered. Felt great on my skin. Hugged every curve of my hour glass athletic build perfectly. The long was good with heels for my height; hit the floor a little when i switched to flip flops. Slit is super high so better for an evening affair.

Ordered a 10R and a 12R I am normally a 10 but the 12 held up better around my waist. Only complaint was the top felt a little loose so I taped my chest.

Delivered on time, fit well, and looked the same as pictures
I ordered a 0R and it was the perfect fit and length. The fabric is high quality. It was easy to carry and got me a lot of compliments at the wedding. I have a slim figure and my fear is that a dress I haven't tried before may look lose on me or make me look thin. This one was a winner!

Worn for a black-tie wedding and thought I was going to upstage the bride in this dress!
I felt so gorgeous in this dress! I got a TON of compliments in it as well. It is absolutely true to size and is not forgiving if you have a little tummy so Spanx may be needed depending on your shape. I chose a 6 initially and it was snug so I needed to have some breathing room for dancing. I am also 5'3" and there were no short sizes available so I rented the 8R and prayed to the dress gods it wouldn't be too long. I ended up getting 3.5 inch heels and it was only a BIT too long falling right at the floor so I would definitely recommend the short size if you need it. Also, the slit down the middle is such a fantastic addition so the dress really glides with you and flares out when you walk. The open back is also super flattering as well as the beautiful lace work down the front. If you want to be an absolute showstopper this is the dress for you! I only wish I could have it in my closet forever.

Oh man. I got so many compliments. I needed spanx for the thighs, and the band around the torsoe has no give, but this looked gorgeous. Super classy, sexy...great. I was perfectly able to dance also - the slit really helps. Not as hard to walk in as you might think. Highly recommend.

Elegant dress for formal occasion
Beautiful dress worn for a gala. The material was thick enough that I didn't need a bra. The long length was nice since I'm 5'9. It would be difficult to dance in this dress, however.

Classic yet sexy with a gorgeous neckline and back; hugs the right places
Classic with a twist. Loved the detailing in front. Gorgeous cut--eye-catching yet classy. The back and slit up the front are sexy and the neckline is lovely. Fits like a glove. Recommend an up-do and dangling earrings to accentuate the dress. Received compliments all night and after.

Beautiful but long
I am a true size zero at 5'2 and the dress was way too long, even with 5 inch heels. I tried on the 2 petite but it was too large in the waist and bust. I safety pinned the bottom about an inch or inch and a half as I loved the dress. The fit was great through bust, waist and hips. Just wish it wasn't so long.

Serious compliments all night long!!!
This dress will get you noticed! Rented it for the BCA Ball, and it was perfectly elegant. Super classy & super SEXY. You can't see it in a lot of the pictures, but FYI, there's a slit in the front/ middle of the skirt, that goes straight up to just above the knee. Since, I'm 5'5" & I ordered the Tall length, so I could wear my 6" heels with it, the slit made walking with that length really easy. Gorgeous!

The regular was perfect (I'm 5'-6" and wore 3.5" heels). It flows beautifully when you walk and the back is cut beautifully. I highly recommend this dress.

Loved the way this dress fit. Hugged curves in all the right places. The only thing I didn't care for as much was how high the slit in the middle went, as I wore this to both the church and the reception for the wedding. Received tons of compliments! #blacktieaffair

Absolutely amazing
I've literally never had so many people comment on my dress and how beautiful it was. I chose the 0 and the 2 and ended up wearing the 2 because the 0 was a little bit too tight around the rib cage. All in all, this dress was amazing.

I picked this dress because the original one i wanted ended up not being available a few days before a black tie wedding. Ipicked this one and it did not disappoint! I wore the 0R and it fit pretty well, albeit a touch large in the waist. I received a ton of compliments and my boyfriend loved it!

Great quality of fabric, fit like a glove. Slit in front was a pleasant surprise. 2L was indeed quite long but I was wearing 5 or 6 inch heels, so it worked perfectly.

Classy Dress with Sex Appeal
I loved this dress!! It was unique and gorgeous but the 2P was a bit large in the top (I'm 32 DD) and overall. The 0 was not available at rental so I went with the 2..I'm 5'2" and with 3 in heels length was spot on. Excellent quality dress and I will order 0 next event!!

Nice thick material and so elegant. I wore a size 6L and I'm 170lbs and 6'00". I went without heels and it was near perfect. I'm an hourglass shape and 32DD bust size if that helps anyone with sizing. Definitely recommend this dress.

Did not wear dress, ran tight. Very uncomfortable!
I did not wear this dress. It came and was extremely tight! There was also a slit up the middle of the dress and I did not see that in the picture. Again, like my other dresses, I missed the 6:30 eastern time cut off to receive another dress in time for my event so it was a very disappointing experience for me. I ordered two dresses, did not get to wear either of them. And I had to go out and purchase another dress from Macy's last minute. Very disappointed and sad experience overall with Rent The Runway!
