Very classy dress!

I wore this dress to a black tie event for work. It was very comfortable and classy. The lace is a great detail.

Totally loved, just picked a different style for the evening

Fits in all the right places, and little effects draw the eye up to waist and higher! Loved it!

Did you wear heels? If so, how tall? I am pretty tall and want to get a sense of how long it is (I would probably wear flats) Thanks!

I felt so beautiful!

This dress is beautiful and I received so many compliments! There is not a whole lot of "give" in the material of this dress. I rented the 4 and 6. (I'm a usual 4) The 6 was too from the waist up but fit ok everywhere else. The 4 was snug but worked much better...with little room to spare. I was still comfortable but I would definitely suggest sizing up on your second size and trying both and going with whatever feels better. It was the perfect dress for a formal wedding. The dress falls straight down with little room in the hip/thigh area, but I still managed to dance the night away!

Amazing dress!

This dress is very flattering. I am 5"2 and typically a 4. I wore the 4R and the length was perfect with heels. The fit was pretty true to a size. The lace detail on the bust and under the arms is very flattering. If you have a large rib cage I would recommend sizing up. There is a subtle belt right under the bust line and may be tight if you have a larger rib cage. This dress is really comfortable and looks lovely on. Would absolutely rent again!

The picture is deceiving!

I didn't realize that the top of this is a blouson while being 2 pieces. The lace underway was gorgeous, but then there was a loose, black overlay that just didn't seem to work right on me! The cut of the dress was awesome-I just didn't care for the overlay blouson top!

Beautiful and comfortable!

This dress was actually the backup to my backup that I ended up getting shipped overnight to arrive on the day of my event. Luckily it fit perfectly. The peekaboo lace on the sides/front is a beautiful pale pink (which I felt didn't show well in RTR pictures). The slit in the front makes the dress a little more "moveable" and I'm glad I ended up with a good option!

Perfect dress for a formal wedding. I am 5'2 so I had to wear pretty high heels but that was the only con. Dress fits very true to size.

Not great for curvy girls

I received this dress as a backup and was relieved that my main dress fit because this would have been a no go for me. I normally wear a 10 but the 10 in this felt tight and so snug on my butt. It's a very thin fabric and would work much better on someone without a booty like mine. I do have a very pear shaped body so I think on a straighter body type this would be an incredible dress. The lacy part on the top is beautiful

The dress was beautiful and unlike anything I have ever worn. I got a lot of compliments!

I am a 34dd so the bust was too small in the 8R. The dress runs a bit small anyway so the 10R was good.

The 2L fit perfectly and was long enough to wear with heels. The lace details on the side of the dead were super cute! Perfect for a black tie event.

Beautiful but the top is unusual

So really try to look through as many pictures as you can. The top is two distinctly different parts. The lacy underlay is against your skin and then the solid black part is almost like a sheath on top of it. Its really pretty but i think better suited to a b cup and above. A huge pro is that you can wear a regular bra underneath it! It was a little bit short for me at 6'1" and my feet were poking out at the bottom with flats on. The middle slit was super easy for dancing and walking. I would recommend this again.

Comfortable and pretty

I had to wear a padded bra. It would have been fine without, but I didn't fill it out. Other than that, it fit like a glove. I am 5' 7" and I think it could have been an inch longer.

Rented this dress for a black tie wedding. It arrived on time and was a perfect fit. A little tight with the waist belt, but overall was very happy with it. Long and elegant, yet simple.

Stunning Dress

It's really nice that they provide two sizes since you never really know how a dress will fit. This was my first time using rent the runway and I thought the dress hadn't arrived in time, I called customer service and they were delightful to work with. Turns out my boyfriend had signed for it and it had in fact arrived. I felt beautiful all night, definitely a gorgeous and classic style.

I really liked this dress, except it truly made me look pregnant. I'm not heavy in a way that this is frequent for me (though I did have a baby a year and a half ago!) so this was a bummer. Otherwise really beautiful dress.

Gorgeous dress... just buckle on belt was missing

Love how it fit! Gorgeous dress! Lots of compliments! The hooks on the belt buckle were missing so I had to safety pin the belt! That is literally my only complaint! Love the dress otherwise!

I didn't end up wearing the dress because another that I rented for better, but the dress looked amazing! Very dressy and flattering, I would recommend ordering a size up because the belt is very tight. You won't be disappointed with this dress. You can wear a normal bra as well.

Love the dress...but a tiny bit too small.

The dress is stunning but there is a belt under the bust that was just too tight for me to wear the dress. Very sad, and fit everywhere else like a glove!

This dress is perfect for a black tie wedding!

I got this dress as a back-up to my back-up. I was worried about the fit and style, but it ended up working out perfectly. It was super flattering and I got a ton of compliments all night. An added pro to this dress is that you can wear a regular bra and it is easy to move in.

Gorgeous dress but runs a bit small with no stretch in the material.

Beautiful dress with unique detail. The only problem I had with the dress was the belt. It's hard to see from the image but there is a belt sewn to the dress that does not adjust and has no stretch. It is very tight and uncomfortable. I wish I would have sized up for my back up dress solely because of the belt. By the end of the night it was very restrictive. I received a lot of compliments on the dress and would rent again if it wasn't for the belt! Also the skirt has no stretch its fairly tight but I didn't find it to be a problem. I'm 5'2'' and 150 lbs and I wore the size 8R which was a little long even with heels.

intended to wear it for a black tie optional wedding

Dress was beautiful but had no give in the bust area. I am average size, cup wise (usually a C, sometimes a B) but I do have a very broad ribcage. This dress could not zip up over the ribcage. I ordered a 4 as backup and that wasn't available, so I'm not sure if that would have fit or not. Disappointed that the backup wasn't available since the dress was much prettier in real life than it looks on the website.

Great dress - perfect fit and style for Charity Gala event!

This was my back-up style (original one we decided was too fancy and sparkly for the event), and I loved it! Per other reviews stating that the bust size ran tight on larger-busted women, I ordered a size up from my normal size 6. I had some wiggle room, but preferred that over the potential of a too-tight top. This dress can be worn with a regular bra, no problem. There is a "belt" that hooks at the small part of the waist to ensure a nice silhouette along with a side zipper. Length was great - I'm 5'3" and wore a 2-inch heel. Nice material, comfortable to dance and sit in. Zero complaints!
