Nice fit if you are fit :)

The dress runs true to size. The fabric is strechy and well fitting so it will not be very forgiving.

Stylist Review

This gown is stunning! The simplicity is what makes it so beautiful. The color is vibrant but not loud. I love the off the should trend and I think that the neckline is sexy-sophisticated.

Tons of compliments on this dress. I like that it is simple yet elegant.

Material is great, just the right amount of stretch. Super comfortable, wore a sticky bra which was perfect with the dress. I have a small waist and a healthy butt, the fit was perfect! Im 5'3" (athletic build) and wiegh 140lbs. Had to wear 3 in heels (but length was perfect). If they have this dress in a different color I will definitely be renting it.

Classy, Jackie-O

This was perfect for a formal event I was attending . Runs a little short with heels (I am 5'6) and a little small (usually a 4/6). Would not recommend for any event with dancing as your arm movement is slightly restricted. Felt very classy and elegant. Beautiful color.

Beautiful, Classic, and Slightly Sexy

I loved this dress! I wore it to an Oscars themed event at my husbands office. I felt comfortable and danced all night long! I wore my normal strapless bra, seem less thong, and 3 inch heels and I didn't want the night to end. It fit like a glove but was so comfortable.

This dress is the perfect glamorous dress with outmost elegance and a touch of sexy. It has slightly stretchy material to allow you to show off the right curves. It's quite true to size and is super comfortable!

Perfect for a formal event!

I wore this dress for a black tie wedding and received tons of compliments! It was simple and classic without being overstated. I have a boxy figure with broad shoulders, but the dress fit was still flattering with the skirt falling in a way to compliment my waistline and hips. Surprisingly, the sleeves stayed in place; however, the dress would shift to the left/right, requiring several adjustments re-centering the dress on my body throughout the evening. Overall, I would still recommend renting this dress for the right occasion!

Simple, Elegant, Beautiful

This dress was gorgeous and I received so many compliments on it. I ordered the 4L and the 6L thinking I would probably wear the 6L since a 6 is what I typically wear, but my B-cup chest could not hold up the 6L. The 4L fit perfectly though and was long enough for me to wear 3 inch heels! I had no problems keeping it up and it was comfortable for dinner and light dancing. It is not a good dress to do the YMCA in though, because of the sleeves it is hard to lift your arms above your head. This wasn't a problem for me, so I didn't really notice. I would definitely recommend this dress! It was beautiful, comfortable and perfect for my event.

Loved this dress! It's weight made it flow so nicely and it was extremely comfortable. A++

Fit was spot-on, though because it doesn't come in a petite it was a little long (I'm 5'3) so I taped it. No complaints at all. I'm tempted to rent it again but it's so much fun getting new dresses each time it's hard to resist something new.

Got many complements on this dress. It fit me like it was made for me.

Only drawback was I felt like the shoulders kept falling down on my arms. Next time I would tape them in place.

Easy Wear!

This dress was perfect for a formal event if you want to be comfortable. I am pear shaped 5'2 147 athletic body shape. I slipped on this dress with great shape wear and it looked fabulous. It was a little difficult getting it zipped but one I was in it that was just a faded memory. I danced the night away. Elegant, Simple,Classic look.

Very simple, modest and, yet elegant. Loved it!

It runs true to its size but it is very unforgiving if you don't have a flat stomach. It doesn't look bad because it is dark in color but if you are picky, you need to take care of this point. I wore the L size because I couldn't get the R size. It would be better with the right length as my skirt was sweeping the floor a bit.

what height heels did you have? I'm 5'9 and wear a 6/8 and debating if I should get R or L. Thanks!

"Michelle Obama dress"

Title is from the best compliment of the night! This is a very classic and elegant dress that I don't think you can go wrong with. I was comfortable throughout the evening and more than satisfied with my camera roll after the night was over. Definitely recommend overall. Tiny criticisms to note: 1) I did feel I needed the necklace to make it feel extra special. 2) I also wish it were just slightly shorter-- maybe I should've gone for the petite? 3) As a large busted lady, this dress was just shy of perfect. I was concerned that the necklace made my bust seem to sit lower than usual. I also found that the pull on the front of the dress made it possible to see through the armpit holes at times.

Great for a Nicer Event

Was doing a reading for a friends formal wedding, so wanted something more classic. Gorgeous dress and for many compliments. Does hug a little at the waist so prepare to size up and/ or wear spanx but ended up being so pretty and really loved the dress. First time renting the runway and would definitely do it again!

Very elegant necklace line and well made. Could actually do the zipper without help! Great color - not so dark a bkue you blend in with sea of black. I rented to try for my sons wedding and will send pic when I get all glammed up - needs statement jewelry or just pearls

Lots of things were great about the event, but unfortunately this dress wasn't one of them.

This dress was so incredibly long I couldn't wear it. I'm 5'3, so petite but not extremely so. It was at least six inches too long. I tried to shorten it with safety pins and fashion tape, but the fabric billowed out so that was impossible. It fit fine throughout the body, but don't order this unless you're tall.

Flattering fit for a curvy person

The dress was a great weight and quality so it hung well and was very flattering on my generally curvy body. It is long so I needed to wear pretty high heels (I'm 5'4") but it wasn't impossible. I would recommend for a classic, flattering look.

Rented it for a black tie affair. Didn't end up wearing because I didn't like the way it fit.

This was a back up dress as my first dress was not available. I am 5'2, 95 lbs. and petite built. I didn't wear this dress, because it was too big around my ribcage and hips (the bust was fine (34B)). I could have made do, it wasn't falling off, just not very flattering the way it hung on me. But lovely dress, think material, and love the color - softer than a typical navy. Very long for me, even with heels I would need to put in a temporary hem to make it work. I would definitely rent this dress again if they had a 0p or 0S

Classic and elegant

This is a beautiful color and a really flattering style, but the fabric has no stretch to it, so you really need to be careful about the sizing. An 8L would have fit me better. Anyone over 5'9" definitely needs the long length. And I think this would work better for small-busted women.

Great dinner, awesome people, perfect dress

Dress is lighter in person, not a deep deep navy like in the picture. This worked out well for me, as I didn't clash with my group's black tuxes. If you're looking for navy, expect more of a muted royal blue. The fit was great, except it was roomy in the bust. It wasn't really a surprise to me. I'm small chested. The fabric is thick enough to hide most lumps and bumps, but beware the underwear lines. Motion is slightly restricted by arm bands, but you can do everything you'd expect to do at a black tie sit down dinner. No football throwing, but you're not completely useless. I wore 2 inch heels and the length was perfect. Would definitely order this dress for another formal event.

Great formal night out

Sizes: 34C, 5'7"+, and 125lbs. I️ rented the 2R and 4R as a back up. The 2R fit perfectly in length and body fit. The fabric was very comfortable and I️ danced all night without it falling down on my shoulders once! Great dress! Oh and the color is a beautiful shade of navy- not too dark.

Great alternative to a black dress!

I got tons of compliments on this look! I felt like I could move freely and felt very comfortable all night long. In terms of fit, I found the bust (I'm a 36C) to be a little roomier than the hips (I have a booty). I could have used a 10 on top but went with a 12 for the hip.

A beautiful dress for a beautiful event.

I actually rented this dress for a bridesmaid dress. I was really nervous about the fit because most of the reviews I read everyone said it had fit nicely, but the tallest person was 5’7. I’m 5’10 so finding clothes that are long enough is already a challenge. I ordered the 8L and it was definitely long enough. I even wore 1 1/2-2 in heels and it was still a good length. It was also true to size. Most dresses i had tried on before i tried size 8’s and so that’s what i went with and it worked out great. I got a ton of compliments and even someone wanted to rent the same dress for another wedding event. It was my first time using rent the runway and I will definitely use it again!

Beautiful....definitely accessorize it up

I ended up wearing the other dress that I rented for the same event but would definitely wear this in the future! It's classic and elegant. It's great for an event like a military ball where you need to be beautiful but classic and not too glitzy or show-y. The fabric itself is a cotton with very very slight sheen to keep it from being too simple. Definitely plan to accessorize this with something classic or sparkly to up the 'event' feel of the dress. The cut on this is great and if you have beautiful shoulders and neckline, go for this. I work out and have defined shoulders and didn't feel an issue with the shoulders being tight as someone else mentioned. I have a long-ish torso that sometimes makes it hard to find dresses with the way they are fitted, but the cut of the waist on this was a good and very flattering. I would definitely recommend this dress. :)
