Classic LBD

Great fit! Finally a dress that fits true to size. This is a nice heavy crepe that has a sheath cut to it. I have curvy hips so this is tricky - I'm between a 6 & 8. The 8 sits well over the hips but the top is a bit loose - the sleeves flare out a bit more since my arms are smaller. Still love the elegant look of the dress!

Very flattering and comfortable, versatile take on the LBD.

The dress runs true to size but is generous through the hips and mid-section. Could be used for many different events - the shoulder cutouts are very pretty.

Sophisticated but playful!

This dress is very well made from a heavier fabric. Shoulder cutouts and ruffle at sleeve cuffs really adds drama to an otherwise boring shift. I am a 34D and it fit very well although it was loose in the midsection (which actually was nice since I needed to eat and drink for a few hours) ;) Wore with red strappy sandals and teal green earrings. A gold clutch finished the look along with a simple bun since I wanted to show off the high neck.

Simple, but sexy. Perfect for a black and white gala.

Fit true to size. I have a large bust (36DDD) so it was great to wear a normal bra. Loved this dress so much, looked into purchasing from Saks! Great Dress!

This dress is very well made, nice heavy fabric with some stretch and fully lined.

This dress is very well made - stretchy heavy fabric and fully lined. I did have to steam it to get out some wrinkles it arrived with. The 8 fit me but as I am hippy I went with the 10 so it laid nicer. So it was a little big in the belly area but not bad. It was also nice to be able to wear a regular bra.

Simple & Elegant

Wore to an upscale rehearsal dinner. Very comfortable and easy dress to wear. Paired it with a fun/textured clutch as a statement piece (clutch also from RTR). I am 5'9 and the dress was the perfect length - It was a little boxy but not enough to really notice. I received compliments all night long!

I love this dress! The length is a bit long for my petite frame, but it works with the cut out shoulders. It's a perfect date night dress or throw on a blazer for work!

I was beyond thrilled to be wearing a designer dress to my nephews wedding !

From the minute I walked into the Rent the Runway Salon I was happy, my stylist was very helpful, I told her exactly what I was looking for and when she brought out the Rebecca Taylor dress I knew it was for me. It arrived on time but was a little wrinkled. I'm 5'7 153 pounds, I wore the size 10. If fit beautifully and I received a lot of compliments. I will definitely rent another dress in the future.

RTR Team Review

This is my all-time favorite dress! The sleek silhouette offers a delicate yet edgy look. Running true to size and being fitted at the waist and hip, we recommend sizing up for backup. However, if you’re curvier, especially in the hips, you may want to consider sizing up for your primary size. With some stretch in the fabric this piece is great for any cup size and may be worn with your standard bra. The open shoulder and bell sleeves ensure a trendy and chic look for your party or night out on the town. Pair with statement jewelry and bag with black or nude heels and you are ready to go!

Perfect!

Rented for our 16th wedding anniversary dinner in a beautiful waterfront restaurant. I rented sizes 4 and 6. The 6 was too big, the 4 perfect. It was comfortable, although a little snug on the sleeves but, I work out and have muscular arms. It fell just above the knees, not too long, not too short. I paired it with gold earrings, a gold clutch and black louboutin heels. Just the perfect amount of sophistication without going overboard. I loved the dress.

Comfy and sexy all at the same time.

This dress has some stretch, really holds everything in nicely. Not lightweight nor heavy, just the right weight for an outdoor event in the evening at our country club. I would buy this one. Compliments all night. Loved it. I'm five foot four and the length was great. I'm curvy so it hugged the curves great as well.

LOVE. THE perfect LBD

If you're looking for an LBD that doesn't make you feel like you're merely blending in with the crowd, this Rebecca Taylor number is THE dress for you. I felt so classy, feminine, and flirty all at the same time. The shoulder cut outs and slightly ruffled sleeves really make the dress. Rebecca Taylor dresses typically run very big on me, but this one fit just right and was even a tad bit snug in the hips. If I had more occcasions to wear a cocktail dress, I would've purchased it on the spot.

Unforgettable and Comfortable!

Love this dress! Ordered the 6 and the 8 both fit great but felt like I had more wiggle room in the 8 and the 6 was more slim fitting just depends on the look you are going for but I was feeling bloated haha and didn't want to wear spanks. It is sexy, fun, and flirty yet so easy to wear! Length was perfect! Arms can move just fine! Love love love!!

Beautiful dress. Great material. Classy LBD

The dress was tight on the arms so I did not wear it. If you have a large bust/bigger arms I recommend sizing up. I also think if you have curves, move on. This dress is best for tall and skinny.

Liked it on others better

Looks great on others in pix, it was a lot of fabric on me - maybe because I am short. Preferred other cold shoulder looks to this one. However dress is lovely - great fabric

Great dinner out

I ended up choosing this dress when the original dress I picked was returned to RTR damaged. (Customer service was amazing in getting me a new dress in time). I saw this style and said why not? I loved this dress. A little flare to the typical black dress and I received so many compliments on it. I have a larger rib cage and my midsection is not my favorite body part so I'm always wary. This dress fit like a glove - close enough to show curves but not enough to wear spanx or not drink wine (the best kind of dress right)? I would absolutely rent it again.

Just a great basic dress with some nice flair

I wore this to a wedding for people I don't know at all. I felt like it was perfect because it has a bit of personality, but was still fairly plain so could fit in in a lot of contexts. I'm usually between a 6 and an 8, and I wore an 8 in this because it was what they had in the RTR store. I think the 6 would have been fine, but the 8 was comfy. Didn't love the arm ruffles, but the rest of the dress was super flattering so it made up for it.

Perfect mix of sophisticated and fun

I loved wearing this dress! I got compliments all night! I felt it fit true to size and chose to wear my trusty spanx underneath just to smooth out any bumps. This dress really does fit like a glove and is so versatile in terms of accessories. The fabric felt great, even for an August wedding in Dallas. I would 100% rent this again or recommend to a friend.

So this was part of my unlimited order I made the mistake in getting a size 8 which was a bit big probably would have been fine with the 6 ! Loved the shoulders and a fun party dress in nyc ! Would probably rent again !

great cocktail party dress!

I love Rebecca Taylor and this dress was no exception. I wore this to a dressy cocktail party and it was the perfect choice. Its a pretty simple little black dress, but the shoulder cutouts and ruffle sleeves gave it something extra. I typically wear a 6, MAYBE a 4, but in this dress I wore a 2, which is the same with another of her dresses I have worn, so she definitely tends to run larger I think. It complimented my curves nicely and I got a lot of compliments.

Cutest LBD! Comfortable & chic! Loved it!

This was a great dress. I would love to own it & would definitely rent again! Runs true to size, comfortable & easy to wear. I wore to a musical and it was perfect. The only downside is the fabric does wrinkle a bit, but it's minimal and hard to see on the dark color. Highly recommend!

Really nice dress, but consider sizing up if you have broad shoulders

I wear anywhere between a 0, 2 and 4 depending on the dress, so I went with a 2 in this one based on the reviews. The fit in the waist and hips was perfect, and even a little loose at that, but I don't think it's meant to fit very snug. The issue I had was with the shoulders. I have pretty defined shoulders and I felt like it didn't sit in the right spot on me and I was constantly tugging the sleeves down. It was also a little tight in the bust, but not terrible. I really liked the dress a lot and feel like it is very versatile so I think i will give a 4 a shot next time.

Great LBD!

I rented this dress for a wedding rehearsal dinner. I loved it and got tons of compliments! I ordered a 4 & 6. The 4 fit me much better in the midsection but the 6 had a better length for me so I ended up going with the 6. I would still rent it again. Very fun dress!

Cute LBD!

This dress is a great black dress, the cold shoulder look and ruffle sleeves gives it an unique look. This dress does run large and does wrinkle very easily. I found that between the two sizes, there was a significant difference in length. I wore the larger size, because of the length, but the smaller size fit so much nicer. You can wear a normal bra with this dress.
