I wore this dress to a black tie New Years Eve party and felt classy and sexy at the same time.
This dress has a lovely fit. I tucked the back strap into the front, I didn't need the support at all and I wore it with a sticky backless bra. The backless bra was key, even with the strap, none of my bras lined up. The length fell at about my knees. The length makes the dress really classy and the backless look is really sexy. It was perfect for a black tie event at a classy social club.

Prefect little black dress - classy and flirty
The dress fit like a glove. The material was perfect, not to thin but not too bulky. I had no problem sitting is this for the wedding ceremony or the dinner and I was able to dance in the dress without having to adjust it. I wore a sticky cup bra with it, but you can go without a bra is you want to. However, if you are bigger than a B cup, it might be too tight in the chest. I love this dress and would definitely rent it again. P.S. There is a slit in the back! You just have to unzip it. I struggled getting in and out of the limo because I didn't know. After the ceremony, my mom saw the zipper at the bottom of the back of the dress.

This was my first rental, it worked out perfect. Got compliments on the dress all night.
The size 6 fit nicely. Form fitting but not too tight, didn't need to worry about a bra which was a plus. The only part of the dress I wasn't a fan of was the strap going across the dress. It seemed to have been a bit stretched out or worn, so it sat a little loose on my back. The dress was elegant and sexy. I will definitely rent again.

Classy look
The dress is made of a semi-stretch material which provides a close fit without gaps. I'm consistently a size 4 and could have worn the 4 but liked the slightly looser but still fitted look of the 6. The one issue was connecting the strap across the back. This definitely requires the assistance of a 2nd person.

Sassy, little black dress.
Absolutely loved this dress! I'm typically a dress size of an 7/8 so I ordered a 6 and 8. The 6 was slightly tight around my hips and the 8 was a bit big in the same area. I ended up wearing the 6 because the overall fit was snug but comfortable. The length was great for a winter wedding and the open back added the right amount of sass! The piece in the back was loose for me so it made it easy to dance in and hid the sides of my sticky bra. I got many complements throughout the night and would actually consider renting this dress again! This is my second RTR experience and I have nothing but great things to say! I'll be back! :)

The most fabulous little black dress
I rented this dress for my birthday and holy wow did this dress impress me. I went with the reviews and sized up because I'm usually either a two and four and so I went with a four and six. Sure enough the four fit me like a glove. This dress looks so classy from the front and then open back and the aspect of the slit (which is adjustable with a zipper) and the back panel just made it so sexy. I have scars from a lung surgery and they always show on my back but this back panel hid them and the cut outs on the side hid them too. So this was truly the first time I was able to show off my back without feeling self conscious. Now this dress might be hard for busty gals as I didn't need to wear a bra with a 32B chest but you won't be able to wear a normal bra. You can wear nip covers or a backless bra and it would still look good as the fabric is pretty thick. I also didn't feel like this dress wasn't tight at all but allowed for a lot of movement. Tons of compliments all night. Ladies this is the ultimate little black dress. #sexy

I wore this to my fiancee's work event, which was held in a fancy speakeasy bar in NYC.
This dress was the perfect little black dress. It fit wonderfully, and flattered my figure. I felt so confident and comfortable!

Great dress for a night out
This dress was great- flattering, a little sexy, great fit. It was a bit complicated to get in to, since it is backless and has an adjustable strap. Outside of that, it was a great new year's eve dress!

This was my first RTR. Shipped a week early. Wish I had had another event I could have worn this to!
This dress fit great. I wore it with the back strap tucked into the inside though. It was too loose. The slip/liner was also a little stretched out and hung out of the bottom of the dress. Not too noticeable though. Beautiful lace cut outs. Perfect for a NYE wedding! Would rent again!

Ordered this for Valentine's Day date and it came without the strap on the back. RTR gave me a credit, but the dress still fit me well. I love this designer. Her dresses always run true to size and are great quality.

Sexy, tight black dress!
Runs small, especially if you have a big butt I would recommend going up a size. Loved the zipper on the slit in the back. I hid the strap, which was a bit tricky, but I thought looked a lot nicer.

back section is strange but it was cute when I tucked it.
The back strap was worn out and looked terrible. I tucked it in the front and it looked great. This left my back open and no one knew anything was missing. I received a lot of complements.

Gorgeous dress & so flattering!!!
This was 1 of my backup dresses because my original ones weren't available to ship at the last minute, but I was so happy with this dress. I can't say enough about it! I wore it to my husband's firm holiday party & I was asked multiple times where my dress was from & got compliments all night! The size 0 fit me like a glove... really flattering. Absolutely gorgeous lace detail at the sides, classy, sophisticated & the back of the dress (my favorite part!) gave it some sexiness without being over the top. I will say that it was a little snug at the bust area, but I do have a larger bra size than lots of size 0 gals so keep that in mind. It's also very tough to walk up stairs because of how narrow the bottom of the dress is, but there is a zipper at the bottom (which you can see I played around with in my 2nd photo) so you can unzip as much as you want for a little more room. Overall AMAZING dress & would absolutely rent this again!

Classy in the front, party in the back
This dress is very pretty, but the fit was a challenge for me. I got the 4 and the 6 to wear to my husband's work holiday party. The 4 was a bit tight in the shoulders, but oddly enough the 6 felt even tighter! I quickly figured out that the strap across the back was a different, much less forgiving material in the 6, so I decided to wear the 4. It ended up working out fine though, and I really liked the design of the dress, which is very classic but slightly more exciting than a typical LBD. The material is definitely thick and high-quality, so it's good for colder weather events, and the below-the-knee length nicely balances out the open back for more conservative or professional events. The dress itself was in good shape, except for the weird band across the back of the 6, and I felt very comfortable in it, even at a corporate event!

Sexy LBD
This LBS was a great rental. The length and silhouette are classic and conservative. The lace cutouts on the side/back of the dress and the adjustable zipper at the hem make the dress sexy and edgy. I wore it to a wedding and got lots of compliments. Also, I was able to get away without a bra (34D) and that was an added bonus.

Just the right amount of sexy
Overall this was a great dress. Loads of compliments all night. Daring but not over-the-top sexy. I'm normally a 6 but the 8 fit perfect, although I couldn't close the upper strap similar to many other reviewers. Wasn't a problem though, I just tucked it in and I also thought that it made the dress a little more flirty with a completely open back. Loved the lace insets too. I normally can't go without a bra, but the fit and thickness of the fabric gave me plenty of support. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Great Rehearsal Dinner Dress
I wore this dress to my brother's rehearsal dinner and loved it! The side cutouts/back brought some edge to the dress style and the fit was very flattering. It's a pretty form fitting dress so I would recommend sizing up for your backup size.

Rented this for a wedding but didn't end up wearing it.
I rented this dress and two others. After reading the reviews, I went a size up and I'm glad I did. I didn't end up wearing this dress because I liked one of the others a little bit better but overall this is a great dress. The open back with the strap across is so cute. The bottom of the dress in the back also has a zipper which adds a little extra detail.

Great dress, loved the backless!
Loved this dress and it was perfect for a black tie optional wedding. The fabric is thick and doesn't wrinkle, so it was easy to travel with as well. The strap in the back was a bit loose, so I just tucked in inside the dress and wore it was completely backless (which I think looks better anyways!). Cons- This dress seems to have been rented too many times. The lining was hanging down a full inch below the dress hem and the button loop at the neck was frayed and stretched out and kept coming undone. Still loved the dress though!

Beautiful black dress
I typically wear a 4 but for some RTR designers wear a 6. This dress definitely doesn't allow for a larger chests so I ended up sizing up. From the front the dress looks like a nice black dress, the lace cutouts on the side are not overly see-through but the back is open and really fun. This dress adds some really fun/sexy details to a classic LBD silhouette. The only down side was the dress was definitely on the worn side. The string holding the button at the top broke so I had to safety pin the dress (luckily I had my hair down) and the larger row of hook & eye clasps were all bent out of shape (luckily I wore the smaller row so this wasn't as big of a deal for me). Overall, I received a lot of compliments from friends/guests and would definitely rent this again!

It was a simple yet stand out dress.
The dress as some have mentioned, has a strange strip across the back which really ruins the look the dress, the strap is kind of loose which makes it kind of hang--it's weird. The good news is you don't have to use the strap (it has an hook and eye closure). The down side when you tuck away the strap, it takes away from the peek-a-boo lace insets. Which I thought were kind of cool, and a little sexy, but you now have a completely backless dress, which looks great too.

Received many compliments, felt like a million bucks!
I'm 5'9, 26in waist, 35in hips and 34D chest - I ordered sizes 0 and 2. The 2 fit perfectly and allowed enough room in all areas to be comfortable but still very flattering. The 0 was a bit tight in the chest/arms but I still had no issues getting it zipped or fastened. I ended up wearing the 0, only because the lining on the bottom of the 2 was longer than the dress itself. I was still able to sit and dance without any issues! Highly recommend this dress!

Classic look with such an elegant and surprising back.
I loved the length as a woman who isn't in love with her legs. I would have worn the 8, but the strap across the back was too tight (and missing one set of hook and eye closures). The back on the 10 was much looser than I would have liked, but could have been fixed with safety pins if I hadn't been in a huge hurry!

Amazing dress! So many compliments!
I was between a size 2 and a size 4, but decided to go with the 2 because the fit was snugger (which looked better with this dress). I wore this dress to a fall wedding at a winery and it was tasteful for the occasion. The cutouts were discretely sexy. I had no issues moving around, dancing, sitting, etc. It was the perfect LBD!

Loved the open back! This dress was a little tight in my usual size, and I like to be comfortable for weddings (so I can dance :). The 2 fit perfectly! With the exception of the back strap which was super loose. I didn't care for the back strap anyways, so I hid it. Received many compliments!

Gorgeous shape
This was a great dress. I ended up wearing the 10. The 8 fit but since I have a broader back and 36 Ds I was not able to fully zip the back. The 10 was great but like others I did not use the back strap- instead I tucked it into the dress and it was unnoticeable. The material is thick and flattering. It's a lovely dress but I wouldn't recommend it for those who have a wide back.

Felt confident and beautiful!
Definitely runs a little small, and not sure how it would fit bigger-busted ladies. But it's made with quality fabric that's forgiving. I was afraid I was going to need to find spanx that could suck my belly in but not show in the back, but when I tried the dress on I found I really didn't need it! Absolutely loved this dress. Got a bunch of compliments for the back, and that handy stretch of fabric across the middle of the back was perfect for wearing a strapless bra (I'm not a fan of sticky bras...).

Stunning dress
The fit was snug but breathable. I had a 3 course dinner and still felt comfortable even though I was stuffed. It was a bit difficult for me to walk up stairs because of how the dress is form fitting but I wouldnt make this dress a deal breaker because of it. Overall loved the dress, loved the service at renttherunway. Cant wait to rent again.

Beautiful dress!
For the price, the quality of the fabric was great! I know some girls mentioned they tucked in the strap that goes across the back, but I liked the way that put the dress all together. As far as size, I usually range from 0-4 depending on the designer. I would err on the large side if you're not sure, since the dress sits pretty comfortably! Got a lot of compliments on it, and I highly recommend it :) Wore it with some high red heels.

This dress was great. Flattering, comfortable and I received a lot of compliments.
I usually wear a 6 dress but the 8 fit like a glove. It is a little long, which makes it kind of conservative (and I'm tall). Unless your strapless bra lines up with the dress perfectly, you will need to wear sticky cups.
