I loved the dress but you NEED a fun necklace with it. It's also tough to wear a bra given the cut in the back.

I wore this to my sorority's semi formal and fell in love! My boyfriend loved it too!

Overall fit: True to Size

I absolutely loved the fit! Everything fit me exactly as it should, and it photographed beautifully. The only problem was my boobs were too small to fit the top, but I pulled the dress down a bit and it looked just as good! Couldn't ask for a better experience with RTR and would definitely do it again!

Perfect dress for a Christmas party!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress for my boyfriend's Navy Christmas party and it worked out great. The style was appropriate and I loved the bow detail on the back and the way the material sparkled. The only downfall of this dress was that the top part was a little long. Being only 5'2, I have a shorter torso and this dress probably would've fit someone taller much better. Otherwise, I loved it!

Cute and easy to wear!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress is easy with just enough sparkle to make it nice for a work Christmas dinner. I don't think this designer fits me well though as the ribs/waist fit just right, but there was too much room in the bust (I'm a 34B). I just kept it pulled down. The back was just low enough I could wear with a regular bra. The little bow in back is cute. The length was just right and the Surprise Bling necklace was great!

Great dress for New Years, Day or Night

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for new years eve but with a 5 month old we decided to take a drive up to Jekyll Island, enjoy the pool/hot tub/beach at the hotel and then celebrate New Years Day with a special brunch at the Jekyll Island Club. My husband and I are photographers so we also did a little impromptu photo sesh with my rental. The dress would have been perfect with my sky high studded heels for NYE but also worked well with my black and gold boots for a more casual/comfortable look. The dress has an adorable u back with bow detail. I loved the gold shimmer jacquard fabric. The lining is hot pink and silky but did show at the neckline and at the hem when positioned a certain way (sitting usually) but not a huge deal. Some of the metallic threads were fraying but not really noticeable unless you were inspecting the dress. Metallic threads tend to break easily so it is par for the course with the fabric really. I was told by a RTR rep that this brand ran generous but I found it to run true to size if not a tad small. A lady at the hotel complimented the look and it was comfortable enough to walk around the club grounds. This is a versatile dress I would love to have in my wardrobe!

I should have gotten a size up because of my bust but other than that it fit really well. The neckline had a snag so I reported it to RTR and they reimbursed me fully for the dress. I still wore the dress because I didn't have time to get a different one. The snag wasn't too noticeable so it was okay. I wore this to a rehearsal dinner which was perfect for dinner and then going out.

This dress was darling, maybe not the best choice for my body type right now. This dress would be Ideal for someone with a small waist line. Perfect for a cocktail part of a wedding. The integrity of the dress was definitely worn, but no one else probably noticed but me. The bow accent was also very cute!

The dress was the perfect dress for the award banquet I was attending and for going out for drinks afterwards. What I loved about the dress was that the front fit like a glove and was very classy, but with the deep U back with the bow, the dress could be sexy too. I would buy this dress in a heartbeat!

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!

Festive with a pop of color!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
In honor of the bride's favorite color, I knew I wanted the jewelry to be the star of the show. This LBD was a perfect complement as it let the earrings shine while also adding a touch of sparkle. Easy to accessorize with a black clutch and black shoes. As for sizing, I went for the 2. I noticed a bit of a gap at the back/shoulder, but it was a minor fit issue that I quickly forgot about over the night.

This dress made me feel really sleek! Perfect for dinner at a country club.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
(excuse my messy room) I have a pretty curvy body and this dress made it look awesome! The hem was flattering and the bodice was tight around my waist but forgiving around my lower tummy area. The open back is really nice! The only thing I did not like was the shoulder straps, when I pull them up, they are loose, but when I wear it off the shoulder, it looks awkward. I would recommend getting some dress tape to make sure your bra straps do not show in the back. Also, when I got the dress, the seams looked a little worn =( but overall, a flattering dress that shows just the right amount of skin for a fancy dinner.

Perfect for a holiday party

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was perfect for my husband's holiday work party. It is great for ladies that are a bit larger in the hips, like me. Like other dresses with an open back, it does require good posture to look nice (if you hunch over, the fabric gathers too much in the front). I would recommend adding fashion tape in the back, but I couldn't find my fashion tape, unfortunately. I was able to wear a normal bra with it, so that was a plus. Got many compliments. Overall, very happy with this rental.

So my original rental did not fit, it was a gorgeous piece, and I was very sad I didn't get to wear it (it was too small). I called RTR after 5 pm on EST and I had multiple options by a stylist and we landed on this one. I was worried because I had to leave by 3 pm for my party the next day! By the stylist assured me that she would mark that the dress needed to be at my residence before noon, and it was at my house by 10! It was wonderful! The dress fit much better and I adored it- it was appropriate for the party, and the after party- very easy to dance in! I had a ton of fun in this dress- and RTR made me a happy renter once again!

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.

Pretty dress overall! Just the right amount of sparkle for a simple New Years' party but nothing over-the-top. Dress runs true to size especially if you have wide hips. I have a short torso and felt the dress was a teensy bit long in that area but it wasn't very noticeable.

Cute dress just didn't fit my body type

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This is my second Rent the Runway rental and again the custumer service was excellent. The dress actually arrived one day early! The dress was cute but I was inbetween the two sizes I ordered. I went with the smaller size which was my mistake. The dress was a little tight on my stomach causing the seam to show, which unfortunately was gold not black like the dress. I am smaller chested and needed a little more support up top to wear the 6. My midsection was just a tad too big for the 4. I will definitely rent again and next time wear the bigger size instead of squeezing into the smaller one :)

Great experience, wrong dress!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Party
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!

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.
