So classy!

This gown was all class!! I LOVE this gown. The sequined shoulders were my favorite part. It did run a bit small, and would highly recommend sizing up. (Fit equally small through the bust, hips, and waist) Although it did run small, the fabric has a ton of stretch. The gown was super comfortable, and a regular bra could be worn. Spanx might work best just to hide any panty lines. The gown was shorter than anticipated, and was a bit too short for my personal preference. This would be ideal for women 5'7 or under!

RTR Team Review

Classic, classic, classic. This style is nothing short of that! The style does run small so I would recommend sizing up if you're in between sizes. The gown is fitted throughout the bust, hips, and waist, but still stays trendy with the high slit in the front. This definitely helps with moving around and staying in comfort! This style would likely work best for A to C cups and at 5'6, the style was about 3 inches off the ground with flats. If you are more petite, nothing a little temporary hem tape can't fix! You just know this gown will never go out of style so rent it with confidence!

Dress is simple, elegant, and easy to wear.

Ran a bit small. I'm usually a 4 or six in dresses. This was a six and was snug. Material is taut and not very forgiving. But the dress is very flattering and the slit is subtle when standing still. Easy to walk in. Tee shirt cut around neck line and sleeves means you can wear a regular bra under this dress. Would definitely recommend!

Perfect dress for a formal wedding!

I wore this dress to a formal wedding and it was perfect. It was tighter than I anticipated but ended up loving the form-fitting look. Comfortable material as well.

Sophisticated, stylish and flattering

I rented this for a work event and absolutely loved it. I was looking for something appropriate to wear in front of coworkers and this dress fit the bill. It is beautiful, well-made and conservative enough for more formal occasions without being boring. The sleeves are beaded and also have pearls (!) which really added to the flair. It ran a bit small, I'm usually a 2-4 and lean toward a 4 with more fitted items. I wore a 6 for this and it was perfect. It will probably be a bit short for taller ladies, I'm 5'4" and the length was perfect with 3 inch heels. Tons of compliments and my favorite of all the things I've rented. Definitely a winner!

Beautiful, sophisticated dress and comfortable too!

I typically wear a size 8/10 but the 12 long was perfect so I'd say the dress runs small. This was actually my back up but it for so beautifully, I wore this dress. The long was perfect with heels, I'm 5'7". I got many compliments!

Stunning and classic

I wore this dress to a black tie gala and it was absolutely perfect. I got a ton of compliments on the fun sequin cap sleeves and it fit like a glove, which gave it a sexier look while still remaining classy. The seams on the front of the dress were really figure flattering and the bottom wasnt too long. Would rent this again!!

Would buy this dress!

Runs a bit small, so definitely order up for your back up size. This dress looks fantastic on- the fabric is thicker, so no wardrobe malfunctions here. The slit in the front comes up mid thigh. I am 5'4 and the R size was long enough to wear with heels.

Great night!!

I wore this for a NYE wedding and it was perfect. Just enough sparkle for the occasion. I got a 6 long and an 8 regular and while the regular length was better, I preferred the fit of the 6 so I wore higher shoes - and with the slit it wasn't a trip hazard! I am 5'7 and about 135 lbs.

Beautiful!

I loved this dress! I usually wear size 8, but after reading reviews i decided to order a 10 and 12. I wore the size 12. Im tall and the long was just off the ground in heels. The dress is form fitting but flattering and very comfortable.

Elegant, stunning

I LOVED this dress. I am 5'9.5" 145 lbs and wear an 8 or 10 in dresses. I wore the 10L in this dress. It was fitted, but because of the fabric (non-stretchy), it held me in and worked. I wore 3.5" heels and the length was great. The best thing about this dress is that you can wear a regular bra and spanx with it! The slit came up just the right amount in front - comfortable for walking and sitting, but low enough to not show undergarments! I recommend a black bra because the armholes are big; for some reason the sleeves were somewhat "flutter sleeves" and while pretty, they did show some of the armhole if I raised my arms. This dress is a great choice if you want something classy and elegant but conservative. (I wore this to a military function and needed to be understated.) I would rent this again and would buy it if I could! Gorgeous dress.

Classic style

This was a last minute order after my original dress never made it because of a snow storm. This dress was easy to wear, and perfect for a professional formal dinner. The sleeves add some flair to a classic black dress. I wear a 2 or 4. The 4 fit well, though it was a little long. Heels and some hem tape fixed that problem in a pinch. I recommend this dress!

Very elegant

I wore this dress to a formal event and loved it! It fit true to size and the slit was at the perfect spot: not too high, not too low. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to look sexy, but not feel like you're trying too hard.

Very pretty, but runs a bit small, and sleeve is not a full sleeve

This was my back up dress. Normally I wear a size 8 but this was too snug. The cap sleeve is also not a full sleeve--no underarm coverage. If it hadn't been a bit tight I would have worn it to my black tie event as it is a very pretty dress and the fabric is comfy.

Pretty but tight...don't eat too much dinner!

I wore this to a military ball. The 8P was super tight so I tried the 10 R. No 10 P was available. I usually wear an 8 size jeans. The 10 R was ill-fitting so I wore the 8P. It was tight! I was not my most comfortable. Next time, if both sizes I need aren't available, I'll find another dress. I liked the look and feel of the quality of the dress though.

Great simple but elegant black gown.

Picture doesn’t do the dress justice. Perfect for wedding guest. The shoulders beading is really pretty in person. It is quite form-fitting so be aware of that. I loved it. So glad I chose it

Not great for hips

Sadly, i was unable to wear this gown because the waist is pretty narrow making it hard to fit over my hips. I ordered a 10L but i think the length may have also been a bit short with my heels. I'd suggest ordering a size up.

Didn't wear it

Careful with this dress. I'm an hourglass typical 6/8 34c ~ I ordered an 8 and a 10 ~ the 8 fit perfect up top too tight in midsection. the 10 was also too tight in midsection and the top was way too big. Just a helpful note for those with my bodytype. I returned and fingers crossed the new dresses fit!

Very flattering, sequins have seen better days

Beautiful dress that was super, super flattering. I usually wear a 8 or 10 - the 10 in this would have been uncomfortable. At 5'9" the length was perfect in 2 inch heels. My only gripe is that the sleeves were quite beat up in the 10 and 12 - probably would be passable at a night event with mood lighting but anyone close could see strings, loose beads and sequins.

I am a size 8 and rented a size 10. Still too tight and could not wear it. Had to borrow a dress!

To tight across the belly and hips. I am an 8, and rented a 10. Still too tight. Thank goodness my neighbor had something I could borrow

Didn't actually get to wear this due to size issues.

This dress was tight in the hips (I have larger hips), but baggy on the top (I'm 34DD). So sad that it just didn't fit well.

very form fitting and upscale, but don't expect to have full range of motion in your arms

i loved the fit and the long was great to put with heels especially being a tall person, but there was not a good range of motion in the arm area

It was such an elegant dress and it was perfect for the black tie event

This dress is fabulous! I wore it to a black tie event and received compliments all evening. I read the reviews about how this dress 'fit like a glove' and originally thought I'd order my normal sizes (4&6). After reading the reviews, my friend suggested I order up a size and she was right. I wore an 8 and it fit perfectly (like a glove). The slit up the middle was a little different and it did worry me at first. It was never an issue until the after party where we sat on tall chairs. The slit was still cut low enough that I was able to feel comfortable with the dress falling on either side.

Gorgeous but small

I just gave birth 1.5 months ago and am normally a size 0. Got this dress in only 1 size (0) bc they didn't have a 2. I luckily wore a different dress to the party I was attending but I couldn't zip near my boobs (breastfeeding). It was absolutely gorgeous though and will be getting both sizes for my friends wedding in a month. Highly recommend!

It was a pretty dress but it did not fit my curvy frame well. It was a backup dress so thankfully it was ok that it didn't fit well. The sleeves were very pretty but would be better on a more athletic build.

Beautiful and very classy, but runs small!

This dress is beautiful and very classy, but I only sized up one size on my first order--I should've sized up two sizes! I am normally a 2 in this style of dress, but couldn't even get the 4 zipped! Rent the Runway was wonderful though and sent me a replacement for my replacement! I'm 4 months pregnant and it has been very difficult to figure out my sizing right now. Thank goodness for Rent the Runway!

Elegant and Flattering!

I wore this for a formal wedding and it was a fantastic rental. The seams and cut of the dress are extremely flattering and the material is thick enough to hide lines from a bra or shapewear, as well as adding some warmth. You do need to stand up straight or the sleeves tended look a little big/awkward, since they aren't sewn all the way around. As others have said, the dress is very fitted does run small - I am normally a 4 and the 8 was the most comfortable. I am 5'8" and the long JUST met the ground in 3" heels - it looked like it was custom hemmed! I would recommend for any event where you want to look elegant and understated.
