Great dress!
This dress runs true to size. The material is thick and hides flaws. It definitely was shorter than it appears on the model without being too short on my 5'9 frame.

Gorgeous dress I didn't get to wear!
I ended up not wearing this only because of inclement weather. The dress was gorgeous and I was really bummed I didn't get to wear it. Hopefully I will soon!

Perfect LBD
Can't believe I didn't get any full body photos to back this up! I had my eye on this one for a while and was so excited to have an event to wear it for. It runs SLIGHTLY small, so I opted for the Medium. I did try the small, but I've got thicker legs to work with, and the medium felt better. The neck is kind of tight in the front, but nothing that detracted from my night. Normal strapless bra worked fine. I received many compliments on this body hugging dress. HIGHLY recommend. May even rent it again in the future.

Classic LBD that is extremely comfortable!
I tend to wear a size 4 in most RTR dresses and this medium fit me like a glove. I had to wear a stick on bra as the dress is cut out on the "side boob" area so a regular strapless bra would show. I am 5'7" and about 135lbs to give an idea on fit. Loved this rental!

Stylist Review
I can't explain how comfortable this Parker LBD is! Running true to size, I would recommend sizing up for backup since it's a more form fitting style. I would recommend Spanx and a strapless bra as undergarments for this piece. It's conservative enough for a work event, yet fun enough for a girls night out! Pair with statement heels and a bright clutch to pull the look together.

Comfortable and Flattering!
This dress was great and I got so many compliments! Even though it was form fitting, it was very comfortable. Hugged in all the right places. I'm typically a Small/Medium but since this was my backup dress I only had the medium but definitely could have gone with a small.

Cute but tight around the neck
This dress fits snugly, but was generally comfortable. The only issue was that it was a bit tight around my neck.

Too tight around the neck
I got this as a back up dress for a cocktail party and fundraiser. It is a very tight fit, but the deal breaker for me, was the tight fit around the neck. I couldn't wait to get it off. Thankfully, my original dress plan worked out perfectly.

Flattering dress for bachelorette party
Fit was true to size, and it was a tight, form fitting dress. Easy to wear, lots of compliments, and comfortable for a bachelorette party. I typically am a size 4-6 or small-medium and I wore the size small. Good option for a LBD

Great dress, form fitting and comfortable. I'm usually a small but medium was better.
Runs a little small but hugged my curves perfectly. Sexy without overdoing it.

Very nice dress. Elegant but not dull. Fits well but seems to be a bit larger than expected.
I rented this dress for Vegas for a Cirque du Soleil show and to walk down the strip. It's a very nice dress and elegant. The quality is ok it isn't as good I expected. It's very comfortable, but gives good support. I would recommend to size down though.

Perfect fit and so comfortable
Loved this dress. I had originally picked out a completely different dress that was not available at the last minute. Rent the Runway was so helpful with helping me choose a new dress and sent this as a new option. I think I loved it more than the original one I picked. It's very form fitting and a true xs, but because it went to the knee it didn't look inappropriate. Would definitely rent this again!

It was a beautiful dress but ran quite small. Hugs every curve. A lot of compliments!
It was a gorgeous simple dress that was highlighted with jewelry and shoes that pop. I would get a size up if I ordered it again because of how tight it really was. It was nice coverage up at the neckline yet classy with the open shoulders.

This dress was gorgeous, BUT it didn't fit. I probably should've thrown on some spanx, and it kept it moving, but a 10 would've been perfect!

Great Dress! Good Length
I wore this dress to a NYE party and it worked out perfect. I'm 5'9 and don't like my dresses too short and this was perfect - the inner slip wasn't too short either. I wore medium - which is my usual size. If I had to choose whether it ran small or large I'd choose small but it was overall true to size. I wore a strapless bra with it so you couldn't see the straps through the see through shoulder areas. Great dress, and very flattering!

Form fitting comfortable and SEXY.
The dress is skin hugging but it accentuates your curves and makes you look slim. The thickness of the material is perfect, can be worn in cooler climate but also in Caribbean.

So many compliments on this dress!
I rented this dress for a fall bachelorette party. The dress is form fitting and a nice weight for cooler weather. The only reason I didn't give the dress five stars is that the sides on the dress scoop down lower showing your strapless bra, but I am sure if you have a smaller bust and can go without a bra it wouldn't be a problem. I styled the dress with black tights, black suede pumps, and Kendra Scott's Danielle earrings in Burgundy. I also carried the Loeffler Randall leopard clutch to help the all black pop a bit.

I ordered this dress for a wedding and it came right on time! I reserved sizes 8 & 10 which is just a medium and a large, I ended up wearing the large. I would definitely recommend this dress!

Amazing little black dress!
This wasn't my original choice. My original dress came damaged so this was a quick last minute choice from the dresses available in my size. I ended up liking it better than the original dress! It's so comfy. No need to wear a bra. Very stretchy. My only negatives would be that because I'm short (5'3") the sheer bottom part wasn't really visible as the slip came down too far on me, and the bottom was slightly stretched out from others wearing it. But it was still a great dress!

great bachelorette option
as someone who always used to wear crop tops and very night dresses, i decided to opt for a grown up going out dress for a bachelorette party night out where we all wore black! this dress fits like a glove, and there is skin open via mesh at the top and bottom. breathable and easy to move in, i felt classy and sexy all night!

Beautiful, sexy, flattering dress
This dress is very tight and form fitting, so there's no hiding your food baby, but the material is substantial enough that it also flatters curves. I was lucky enough to get this dress brand new with tags on it, so it was in pristine condition. The designer's tag recommends storing it flat (folded), not hanging, to avoid stretching it out, which actually makes it excellent for travel because it packs well and won't wrinkle.

Can never go wrong with Parker!
I was a little apprehensive to rent this since there were no reviews but I figured I'd have to fit into either the XS or S since it was a basic tight dress. I'm either a 0 or 2 (normally the latter) just depends on fit of the dress since I have a butt and hips. They both fit but XS was a little more snug (in a good way) and didn't bunch in the stomach area like the Small did. Since the dress was brand new with tags still on the neck was a tad tight but I managed. I can also see the bottom of the dress getting stretched out after it's seen more renters but it was nice and tight for me. It's a thick material but I still wore spanx for the extra smoothness. Didn't ride up at all and it was the perfect length. You'll have to wear a strapless bra since the whole chest/neck area is see-through. Definitely recommend!
