Beautiful fit, made me feel like a million bucks

This was my back up dress for a good friend's wedding and as soon as I put it on, I was in love! The rouching is very flattering, and the sweetheart neck made me feel feminine and sexy. I only ordered a 6 (the 8 was unavailable) but it ended up being ok. I have a pretty broad rib cage and it was a big tight getting the zipper up but the fabric had enough give that the dress still closed and was comfortable. I wore a strapless because I didn't pack a real bra, but I imagine it would work fine with a demi cut. I wish I had another event coming up just so I could wear this again!

I loved this dress.! Will def rent again!!

I loved this dress.! The 6 was a little snug, but fit better than the 8. Like other reviews said, if you are top heavy you will have a lot of cleavage. I'm curvy and there was enough stretch in the dress for me to feel comfortable eating and drinking. The only issue was a small hole on the side of the dress. It was barely noticeable since the dress is black and has ruching, but my boyfriend noticed it and pointed it out. Other than that I had a great experience!

Rent the runway is great - go online pick a dress and check out. I just have to pray I like it

Wore this dress to a fire department installation dinner... I loved the dress super comfy however being big up top was kind of an issue my chest didn't fit in it- I was constantly fixing my top all night and felt super self conscious Bc I felt like my chest was hanging out... Other than that I loved it and am wearing it again to a wedding

Best dress ever

This dress was amazing, comfortable and hugged you in all the right places. I got so many compliments on it. If you are big chested be prepared to show a lot of cleavage.

I felt amazing!!!

I got this dress for a date night as my free birthday dress and I cousins have been happier. I was nervous about wearing a tight dress but the other reviews were totally right and the touching hides any flaws you are worried about. It was unbelievably comfortable. I wore the 10 because I wanted the room but I could've wore the 8 if I'd wanted.

Sexy but classy LBD!

The neckline was beautiful and the fabric & style perfect for a dress for our anniversary dinner. The middle around the waist bunched a little on me though. It ran small in the shoulders and thighs so I had to wear the 8 instead of the 6. Still it was a great dress- and I liked that the skirt didn't ride up too much constantly like a lot of sheath dresses do.

Great bachelorette dress!

The dress is very sexy, with a plunging neckline. Not too short though--easy enough to sit down in. I loved that I could wear a bra with it! It's a little plain, I typically like something a bit more interesting, but it's a good LBD. Perfect for the #bachelorette weekend.

Fun lnd

It definitely runs small. I wore full spanx underneath to fit into the 8. It was snug but comfortable once on. Didn't need to wear a bra which is nice and it held the girls up no problem.

The fit is perfect for curves!

This dress is great for curvy girls. Super flattering and the stretchy material is comfortable while still holding everything in. I wish I had a picture from the night because words don't do it justice. Definitely great for a night out! Just don't wear a push up bra, which is what I did and man my boobs (34D) were way out. The cut of the dress is low enough for a normal bra. Will rent again!

Amazing cocktail dress!!

I absolutely loved this dress! I ended up wearing the size 8 to have a little room in the top. The size 6 was a little tight in the chest. Other than having to size up, this dress was amazing! I was comfortable all night and didn't have to deal with feeling uncomfortable after eating dinner. It was easy to dance in too. I would recommend fashion tape for the straps. Definitely a dress to remember!

Great dress!

I rented this dress for my sister's wedding! I wore a size 6, so it was true to size! The fit was fantastic & I got many compliments on the dress! I wore a bra underneath & it was constantly trying to make an appearance though. Was pulling it up all night. Wouldn't recommend for bustier gals. Other than that, it was a perfect dress!

It was PERFECT!!!

(I'm the girl on the right!) I was super nervous since this was my first dress i have ever rented from Rent the Runway but it turned out perfect! I loved the sweetheart neckline and the thicker straps made it look timeless. Because of the thicker straps I was able to wear abnormal bra. Plus I got so many compliments on how HOT I looked that I plan on coming back again soon!

Nothing

I rented this for a holiday party. I rented an 8 & 10. I gave it a two stars because I wouldn't recommended this dress. The size 10 fit perfectly around my body except the top. The top was too big and it kept falling off. The 8 was a little to tight around my stomach area and the top was still a little loose it kept falling off my shoulders. I don't know if having a bigger bust might help to keep the top from falling off or having bigger shoulders?

I loved this dress. I typically wear a size 2 or 4 in Nicole Miller but I ordered up and I'm glad I did. My larger chest fit better in the 6.

New favorite LBD

Wore to a NYE wedding. As many other reviewers have noted, the dress beautifully hugs curves. I'm very flat and it accentuated what little chest I have. I sometimes can go between an 8 and a 10 but the 10 was falling off of me and didn't have that same curve-hugging effect. Also, I am very self-conscious about my tummy, and didn't feel it was showing in this dress. I'd definitely rent this again!

I felt very sexy in this dress and it was comfortable!

If you are busty you may want to order a size up for your second size. I loved it and didn't have to wear spanx just regular panties and bra. It's a great little black dress super feminine. Reminds me of a dress a bombshell would wear - like Marilyn Monroe or Sophia Loren.

Perfect LBD made me feel amazing!

I ordered this for my first wedding anniversary date/vacation and ended up wearing it for Christmas Eve service as well since it came early. Perfect for church with a red blazer over it and for my dinner I wore bright blue pumps with matching bracelet and necklace. Forgot to take a picture but trust me, this fit amazing! Would look good on any body type. Especially mine because I had extra weight in my stomach and back and it slimmed it all out! Loved my first rental experience and was able to ship it off while out of town. couldn't have been easier or had a better experience! I went with the 8 instead of the 6 just because I wanted extra room for dinner and I have 34DD boobs so there was more control in that area.

Ended up not wearing it. The cut of the top made my broad shoulders look even wider.

The way the top was cut it accentuated my broad shoulders. Just wasn't flattering

Sexy curve huggin thing

Sized down to hug curves, otherwise billowing style at waist bunches in a slightly unflattering way. But the dress was well received. If you are smaller in the bust you can probably get away with no bra. Unfortunately, I wore one that kept creeping out. Great for a black tie cocktail party! Definitely will turn heads.

Compliments all night!

I wore a normal bra and didn't need any fashion tape to keep the dress in place. I'm 5'3" and 115 lbs. I wore the 0 but I could have worn the 2 as well. The 0 fit better but any differences were minor. All in all, Great dress! It was comfortable and I got lots of compliments! I really can't remember anything negative about it.

When my date saw me in the dress; the look on his face was the biggest confidence boost!

I'm about 5'3"-5'4" and the dress was longer than expected, but I wore heels and that balanced it out. The straps were also a bit long- don't count on being able to wear a bra with this (I wore a stick-on) because the dress falls pretty low. I ADORED this dress and got a ton of compliments!

Would Recommend

I would definitely recommend this dress! The reviews said it was extremely figure flattering and it did not disappoint. I have an hourglass figure with a small waist and significantly wider hips, and usually can't do tight dresses due to the muffin top effect. I did wear spanx with this dress and felt more comfortable that way, but the ruching smoothed out all of my curves in all the right places. :) I am usually a large 6 or a small 8 and I could have pulled both sizes off, but the 6 was a little tight around the chest and shoulders so I opted for the 8 which had a little more wiggle room. Both sizes looked great. :) The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was the straps -- they were a little too long and caused the dress to fall down VERY easily in the front. I took many pictures in which my bra was exposed and I didn't even know it. I would definitely recommend investing in some fashion tape and using it before heading out -- I didn't have any times when I first put it on at home, but the dress quickly started to fall down as I moved around in it. All in all highly recommended though and would rent again. :)

Amazing dress!!!!

The dress fit a little snug in the chest and I'm not that large... Just put the girls on display more than I intended but it was ok. The folds are amazing - they conceal waist and hip areas and also left room to eat dinner with no issues.. Very good :) all in all, great dress!!

Great dress if you wanna show 'em off!

I think the dress is a great LBD. For me, the level of 'boob' up top was a lot. This was a flattering dress and would be on most people. I was just a little uncomfortable with how bare it was. If you're anything in the C or D area, I'd definitely size up, or maybe rent something else.

Flattering LBD for night out with the girls

Wore this for a bachelorette party. Definitely busty, so if you're someone with a bigger chest this might be too much. I'm a 36B and was really showing off some cleavage, but it was ok for a night out in the city with the girls. The dress is thick material and is lined which helps cover lumps and bumps. I still wore spanx but just because they made me feel more comfortable. I was able to wear a regular black bra. The only complaint is that the dress was really difficult to zip due to wear and the folds of the fabric on the backside. The tops layer of the dress also seemed to shift around a lot on the under lining, requiring me to grab it and spin it back around when I was dancing. Otherwise it was a good dress for the night!

Elegant, sexy and perfect LBD!!

I felt amazing in this dress!!! The shoulder straps and neckline give it a gorgeous look! It was perfect for a night out in Vegas with my guy. He loved this dress. I am normally a 12 but they only had a 10 so I crossed my fingers and gave it a try. It was snug in the chest but the material is stretchy and forgiving so the rest of the fit was fine. I could move and sit in it easily. I didn't wear spanx because the ruching disguises everything and I didn't need a bra because the top pushes the girls up and gives them a nice shape. The slip underneath does cling a bit but not enough to diminish my love of the dress!!! I definitely recommend if you want to look sexy but classy!! This was my first RTR experience and they are fantastic!!

Amazing dress! My husband loved it!

This is a fantastic dress! I Would love to have it in my closet. I rented this for a weekend getaway with my husband for our anniversary. It can be dressed down a bit with a sweater or worn alone for the perfect LBD. I usually wear a 6 but wore the 8 instead because it had a bit more room in the chest. Other than that the dresses fit about the same.

Flattering and fit like a glove!

Wore this for a bachelor (yes, bachelor) party I threw for one of my BFFs. It was a perfect mix of sexy and classy and fit amazingly. I have zero boobs after having two kids and this dress (plus a push up bra) even gave me a touch of cleavage. Would definitely rent again.

Loved my first experience with RTR. Dress came a day early and it was perfect. So easy to use!

I wore this dress to a cocktail party and it was a hit! I think it's somewhere between true to size and running a little small. I normally wear a size 6 in dresses, but I was most comfortable in the 8 for this dress. Not too short and was extremely flattering.
