Didn't wear but it's really lovely
This was a back-up dress for me. The positives: lovely, ladylike, just a hint of skin to make it modern, gorgeous, almost-black blue. Perfect for an evening wedding or fancy dinner with his family. The slight negatives: Taller women might not like it. If you're long in the waist at all, the hips didn't quite hit in the correct place. The 4 hit too high, this 6 was a tad too wide. Just couldn't quite make it work. Also, not really appropriate for my event, which was in a modern museum.

I wore this beautiful Monique Lhuillier dress to the 2013 White House Christmas party
The fit was true to size, the lace material was extremely durable and the hemline hit right above my knee. I recommend this dress to anyone with a slim, tall build as it really elongates and flatters your figure.

Great for Office Christmas Party!
This dress looked absolutely amazing and fit me like a glove! I got a ton of complements on the cut-out back and the length was long enough to keep it conservative for my office Christmas party. I did think it was black from the photos without reading the detail that it was navy blue but didn't change anything! I highly recommend this dress! I'm teetering closer to a 6 now-a-days but was ambitious and ordered the 4 as my extra size and ended up going with the 4 as it fit better around the waist and hips.

Classy dress for a formal affair!
I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner. I usually wear a size 4, but for this dress the 2 fit a little better. it was tight on the back and chest and had to keep pulling it down so it didn't bunch, but overall it looked great and I received a ton of compliments. The dress was slightly longer than I wanted it to be, but I expect that to happen, as I'm only 5'3. I also chose not to wear a bra with it b/c the small corset kept everything tight anyway. Definitely would rent again!

Sexy yet Sophisticated!
I absolutely loved this dress! Since I'm a bit taller I was afraid that the slit in the back would be too short or the overall length would be too short but that wasn't the case. The dress gives just right amount of stretch which in turn flatters the figure. I love the open back, and received many compliments on that in particular. I liked that this dress is navy instead of black which made it different from all the other black lace dresses out there. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Beautiful dress! Gorgeous lace!
The dress arrived the day before it was scheduled which was a plus. The lace on the dress is gorgeous and the color of it is navy not black! The dress gave me a little room in the stomach which made it look a lot nicer. Fitted through the top and bottom. No stretch in the dress. Did not need a bra in this dress either. Hits right above the knee and is very comfortable to wear!

This dress was fabulous! It was comfortable, fit great, and I got compliments all night!
I rented this for a last minute formal affair, when I received the first two dresses they were both too big and I was in a panic, so I called RTR and they overnighted a smaller size. The customer service was great I got my dress on time, received compliments all night and felt great.

Could have worn the 6, but the top was too small. The 8 looked great anyway. I will email a pic.
Top bust area a little snug but looked great anyway! Had a lot of compliments. I wore nude colored pumps and had a navy clutch w some bling on it. Would rent it again. Thank you soooo much. this is great!

The dress fit very well. I received an 8 and a 10. The 8 fit, but I chose the 10 because I was going to a friend's wedding and didn't want to be too tight.

I received a plethora of compliments on this dress! It was a great choice for a bridesmaid.
Hips and waist were fine on the 8; chest ran a tad too small so I went up a size to be comfortable, though a little loose. Tricky to hook the back without help, but I managed. Comfortable all day.

Hi! Why did you wear a size 0 when you are usually a size 4? I am a size 4 with the same measurements and weight as you. I just don't want to mess this up as I have a small window for the event. Thanks!!

This dress got lots of compliments, and looked young & fun but appropriate for a rehearsal dinner.
Fit was true to size and the dress was very comfortable. It even worked without a bra with all it's boning and the way it is constructed - a major concern of mine.

Very elegant, yet fun because of the back.
I got this as my second dress and loved it so much that I wished I had a second event to wear it to. It fits really nicely and I didn't believe the reviews until i tried it on myself, but you really can go without a bra, even if you are busty!

So so small
I rented this for a wedding, and while it is extremely lovely, it ran so small I was shocked. I almost always wear a ten, but this nearly didn't zip. I had other dresses overnighted because this fit so poorly. The cutout in the back is beautiful, but unless you have a super sexy back, I wouldn't recommend it. I've worn other back-less(ish) dresses that were cut out in better places. The shape and the boning in the bodice are perfect and flattering, but the cutout is simply in a poor location for my body type.

Beautiful dress!
I ordered the 6 and 4. The 6 was too large but the 4 was just a little snug in the hips (I have larger hips) so the nude lining didn't lay quite right. I would have worn it but I found myself tugging at the lining too much so opted for the other dress I rented. The back is beautiful and the dark blue is gorgeous.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this dress. Very classic and elegant. So glad I went with this one.
A beautiful dress. Elegant with a bit of flare with the open back. I ended up wearing a sticky bra that worked well with the dress and gave me a little more shape in the front. I felt beautiful and received a number of compliments. As other reviews say, the lace is really more of a navy blue than black. . . but that adds to the beauty of the dress. A little different and stands out from all the other black dresses that are seen. I originally had this dress as my back up, but when I put it on I knew right away this was the one I wanted to wear. Thank you!

Even our PA program's resident "style guru" said she would need to borrow this dress from me!
I scoured RTR for the perfect dress for my physician assistant program White Coat Ceremony - a major first step in my medical career! After a couple weeks and hundreds of dress, I saw this one and knew it was exactly what I needed :) I followed the suggestions and ordered my extra size larger, but the reviews were also spot on that the dress runs true to size. It arrived the day before the event, and it fit like a glove :) I wasn't sure how a sheath would work on someone who is shorter with a curvy, athletic build, but I received a TON of compliments at the event from classmates and professors - this was a hard one to send back! It was very comfortable - the fabric and the fit were very flattering. I also upgraded to Pro, which I HIGHLY recommend as it basically pays for itself in two rentals! Thanks so much RTR for making my White Coat Ceremony so perfect! Can't wait to rent again!

Very classic and conservative.
This was an alternate for a wedding. I did not wear it. Felt a little matronly, for me I am 46. Ran a bit loose in waist, runs on the long side. Perhaps if it was shorter and had a solid color lining and tailored would be better

This is a really lovely dress - elegant and classy and flattering
I'm a size 10/12 and got both sizes - ended up going with the 12. It was very flattering - the color is lovely (looks black on the model but is actually a dark blue) and wore a nude pump. Looked great!

This dress fit like a glove & I got so many compliments throughout the night!!
Absolutely loved this dress. Can't wear a bra because of the back. If smaller chested, no bra is fine. I wore a nubra for more support. I loved the navy color. Was a contrast from all of the black dresses at my brotber's cocktail attire evening wedding. So glad a chose this dress! I loved the length as well. Very flattering. :)

I LOVE this dress!
I wore this dress for a wedding held at a museum in downtown Chicago. It was perfect for the occasion and I received so many compliments all night long. I wish I could keep it! It was my first time trying Rent The Runway and I'll definitely be doing this again. It was SO easy! The first dress I ordered was a little too tight for the conservative setting the wedding was held in so I sent it back right away and was over-nighted this dress. It was PERFECT. The dress fits true to size. There is little to no stretch in the fabric but very comfortable (I danced the night away in it!). I am 5'11 and 155lbs and the size 6 fit like a glove. Can't say enough about how beautiful this dress is.

The lace is blue, not black. Still gorgeous. Runs a bit tight up top - if you have broader shoulders size up.

Lots of compliments
Very comfortable. Lots of compliments. Had to go up a size to a 6 bc of fear of "back-fat" w the open back hitting right at the bra line. . Would've worn the 4 other than that. Had to go bra-less bc if the open back but with going up a size the open back was very flattering. It is Navy not black.

Amazing dress
This was my first time renting and the experience was so easy. The dress arrived a day earlier then scheduled. The dress is great. I felt so beautiful in it. The navy color was perfect for a Friday evening wedding. I ordered a size 6 and 4 and I wore the size 6. I was worried it would be too small in the midsection since I still have some baby weight but it fit great. Spanks helped a lot! The neck line fit me a little weird. It kept bunching up and wouldn't stay flush. I used some fashion tape but it didn't stay. I also wore a nubra since any other bra would have shown in the back. Over all I was happy with the choice and will def rent again.

Pros: I felt comfortable not wearing a bra (would have to have a backless bra if you chose to wear one). Very classy look with appropriate length. Cons Not getting more pictures in the dress. Loved it!

lovely dress but could not wear.
I wanted this dress because it would have been perfect for a wedding, but it was not the right fit for me. the bust was perfect, and my wide shoulders fit and they even looked smaller. the problem with the dress was from the waist down. it was big on the waist, and in the hips, I could pinch the fabric with my finger and thumb on each side. My waist was lost and it looked like a straight line. I also dont have the hips for it. Also this dress is not for women who have long torsos, even if its just by a little. this dress began the waist and hips above my natural ones and the lining poked out, looking more unflattering. I think it maybe the designers style because I had a similar problem with a previous rental from the same designer.

I wore this to a vineyard wedding in May, didn't want to take it off! Fit like a glove!
My first rental. This fit perfectly, I felt like royalty. I love everything about this dress, I cannot complain. My dress actually arrived a day earlier than I picked. (I picked a Thursday delivery, arrived on Wednesday night) Please don't coordinate that way though, I am sure that was pure luck. I wore a sticky bra, and I was comfortable all night. I received so many compliments. I wish I didn't have to return it. No wear, no tears. My one bracelet would snag, so be careful of your jewelry choices. I would rent this again, in a heartbeat. I was free to dance, drink, sit, eat, and be merry!

Dress did not fit well
If you have large breasts, do not rent this dress. It was beautiful and comfortable, but it looked funny on because of the beige lining that squishes your 2 breasts into 4. Very lovely dress otherwise, though.

Pretty lace
This dress was sent as a replacement for a dress that was no longer available. I really liked this dress, it was just too fancy for the party. It ran a little long for someone petite, but would be perfect for a more reserved look or formal affair. Keyhole in back was nice, but not too revealing, and probably could be worn with just a regular bra and safety pins or low back extender.

Amazing dress - very beautiful color and lace.
Fit a little large (normally a size 2), but the 0 fit perfectly. A little long for a shorter girl, but great for a formal affair with a dates' family.

Comfortable too!
Great dress. Comfortable with a little stretch. It was tight enough I didn't need a bra and was perfectly comfortable dancing all night. I liked the length too - it wasn't too short which is hard to come be in dresses for me.

Fits true to size, very comfortable, and loved that it was navy, not black!
