This dress was fun, but I thought it would be tighter in the skirt.

I wore this dress for my birthday, and it looked good but it wasn't my favorite rental. I thought the skirt would be tighter and slightly shorter.

Great experience, wrong dress!

This was my first renting experience and I was very impressed with the customer service. Unfortunately, I was underwhelmed by the dress itself. The dress ran true to size but despite some other reviews I found I could not wear a normal bra without it showing in the back. Also, maybe due to my short stature, I just felt as though the proportions were a little off. The bottom of the dress cut me off in the wrong spot making me look a little fuller. Despite not loving the dress I'll definitely rent again for another occasion!

Cute dress, odd fit

I was so excited to wear this for a wedding. The zero would have fit me great and did everywhere but the bust where it seemed like a previous renter may have stretched it. The dress was a great material, super cute and I wish it would've fit! Not the dress for me but still love this great site!

This was a perfect dress for me to go see a Broadway show in. The 4 was tight so I went with the 6.

Fitting and material is not the softest to the touch.

Perfect fit and just the right amount of sparkle to jazz up a simple black dress.

Perfect fit and just the right amount of sparkle to jazz up a simple black dress. I was able to wear without a backless bra too.

Cute, sexy, hugs all the right curves!

I wore this as one of the bridesmaids for a bachelorette weekend and it was perfect. The bow in the back is super cute, and it fit like a glove. It cinched in at the waist, but gave me plenty of room for my oversized booty. I was able to wear a normal bra- the back was not too low, which was perfect. I felt great and looked great!

Underrated stunner of a dress!

This was my first time using RTR and it was perfect. I rented the 4 and 6 and went with the 6 strictly for comfort... The sizing was very close but the 6 I could breathe (and eat!) better in ;) Worked great w an up do and earrings (thanks RTR for those) but could work just as well with a necklace to jazz it up. Gold shimmer makes this dress fun, but the cut makes it casual, cool and just a touch sexy. Highly recommend it!

This dress is very pretty and sophisticated. I wore it to a wedding and received many compliments. The low back with the bow makes it special. I usually wear a Milly size 2, but could have worn the 0 in this dress. It was slightly big around the waist. Otherwise, it was comfortable and very easy to wear.

I was so disapointed with this order! I ordered both a 2 and a 4 to wear for a wedding. The 2 was too big and ran large around the bust and shoulders. It also doesn't drop very low in the back and it came clear to my knee. I thought I could jazz it up with a fun necklace like the model but my husband told me it looked like a dress his mom would wear. Not the look I was going for so I returned it without wearing it. The lining is hot pink tho!

Beautiful dress! I love the fabric, although it feels like it could snag easily. Lots of extra room in the bust for me (34B), and all around I could have sized down (like many of the other reviews say; trust the reviews). I got a size up for my extra dress incase the original was too short for my height, but the length is just fine, and would probably have been equally fine in the next size down. The dress is still so flattering, and the back is just stunning! Love this rental.

great dress!

Rented this dress for a friend's wedding, it was perfect. Milly seems to run big, I normally wear a 2 or 4 but needed the 0. Perfect black dress and the silver adds a little something to make it stand out. Received a lot of compliments! Was a little worried about the length given my height - but it was totally fine.

runs big, not for long waisted

such a cute dress ... but alas i could not wear. I rented this one and the 0 was large on me. I am long waisted and the waist didnt fit in the right place and looked puffy around my waist and was baggy. I messaged RTR and they told me to send back - They were nice and I am awaiting my credit It also has a red lining inside ... that was a surprise and I thought I would note.

I wish I owned this dress

I wore this dress to my traditional Christmas dinner date with my boyfriend to Gotham in NYC and got compliments from the coat check girl, the hostess, and bartender! Super cute and I wish I owned this dress! The back is low so get a bra that would be appropriate b/c going braless probably wouldnt work. Its a bit loose on top. I ordered the 4 and 2 and went with the 2, but could have worn a 0.

Fits awkwardly

I have a full bust and a short torso and while the dress fit, it was large in the shoulders - the straps felt like they were going to fall down, and there was extra material around my midsection. It just really didn't do much for my body, unfortunately because it is a stunning dress!

Great Dress!

I love this dress and received a lot of compliments! It does run big. I probably could have gone down a size, but because is was black and not supposed to be form fitting you couldn't really tell it was big. I do have one negative though, the pink liner of the dress showed the entire time. I had a few people tell me my slip was showing... I then had to explain it was the liner of the dress. Other than that it is perfect for a small waisted gal, with hips! :)

I loved this dress but if you have long legs and a short torso you will have to pin the waist so the waist isn't to loose!

It runs big, couldn't wear.

This dress looked fun but I ordered a 2 and it was inches too big. I normally wear a 2. Also, the pink slip underlayer showed and didn't lay well under the black. I'm sure it could have been cute--just couldn't wear! I do like the sheen/sparkle of the material. It's a fun version of a black dress.

Smaller busts order a smaller size! Customer Service is GREAT though!

The dress is beautiful! However, I ordered the 4 and the 6 (since I normally wear can wear a 4) and both sizes were too big. I feel like this dress requires a larger bust which unfortunately I don't have. RTR customer service was fantastic and helped me to exchange the dress for another! I will definitely try renting this dress again when I have an occasion but will plan on getting the 2 and 0.

Dress was sent Thursday and arrived 2 days before the event. SO easy, great, and affordable!

I usually wear a size 4 dress and the 2 was a little big on me.. I would definitely recommend getting a smaller size.

Got so many compliments on the dress

I normally wouldn't get size 2, but based on the reviews I read I ordered a 2 and a 4 thinking I'd be more of a 4. The 4 was definitely way too big, and the 2 fit well. The waist runs big, it could have fit better around there. But overall the dress was beautiful, textured and sparkly. It came a few inches above my knee, and the back of the dress isn't as low as it looks - my regular bra didn't show. For a plain black dress it was very special and it made me feel very glamorous!

Customer service was amazing

This dress runs very very large- normally a 2 or 4 and the 2 was even too big. Also had a problem where the lining was showing, which im not sure its suposed to. Besides from that a very cute and classy dress

Not for small hips/waist!

I couldn't wear this dress because it was so ill-fitting for me. I would guess this dress only works for pear shapes. I had to send the dress back, but fortunately had a back-up. If you have small hips and waist and larger bust, you will be swimming in this dress on the bottom even if you size down. This was the first RTR dress that hasn't fit me, so I really can't complain, but be careful with renting this dress depending on your body type!

I wish that this one had fit!

I absolutely loved this dress in the pictures, but when it came in it was MASSIVE (I ordered the 0 and it was falling off). There was no way that I could have worn it. This is such a cute dress, but it's not great for petite girls

Size down!

I ordered the Size 2 as my regular size and 4 as a back-up (usually a 4, but read that this dress runs a little large); Ended up that the person who had the Size 2 didn't send it in on time, so I was able to pick out another dress, free of charge! (Great customer service!) However, the 4 was WAY too big and unfortunately, neither sizes of the 2nd dress fit. I have a feeling that the Size 2 would have fit perfectly First time that RTR didn't work out for me!

The back is what makes the dress! It's subtle but very cute.

I'm around 5"1 and 115 ish so I guess I'd say it runs large since I normally wear a 2 or 4.

This dress was stunning! It glows in the light and it looked so regal and elegant! I felt beautiful.

The fit was a bit big on the top, I should've gotten a size 0. But other than that, the dress was lovely and the perfect knee length for a formal affair. It was classic, but still spontaneous!

Beautiful dress just too big

This dress is great, albeit a bit noticeably worn. Loved the fabric, sheen, bow in the back. Unfortunately, it was too big to work for my event. I typically am a 2/4 and the 2 as a backup was unavailable. If you order just make sure to size down for your backup.

Cute, comfortable dress!

I wore this dress for New Years Eve. It was super comfortable and easy to wear. I generally wear a 6 - sometimes an 8 - and I felt like I might have been able to size down to a 4. But, being a little loose wasn't a problem. Really cute in the back! Good length.

Ended up not being able to wear this dress because it was too big & too long (went about half way over my knees (I'm only 5'1 though). Would have been cuter on someone tall.

too loose on top, but made it work

I'm small on top, & even with a size 0 I had at least a 1 inch gap on both sides of my torso. I was able to made it fit though by taking a safety pin & folding over the extra material behind the bow. If it weren't for that bow, I wouldn't have been able to make this work. Overall I was a bit underwhelmed by this dress. I think it looks cuter in the picture than in person, & I actually felt older while wearing this. I wore this 3 years ago as my first RTR rental, so I'm sure if I wore this now I'd feel more age-appropriate. But since it was too big in the first place & there's a ton of other dresses I'd pick over this from RTR, I wouldn't rent it again.

Beautiful dress, runs a bit too large

This dress is absolutely gorgeous in person and has the perfect amount of sparkle. It just runs a tad large to where I needed to pin it in the back so it wasn't baggy on me. The open back and bow are nice details and I got tons of compliments on this dress.
