Poor Fit
I own a similar dress by Rebecca Taylor in a different pattern/color combo, so I thought this black dress would be an easy rental. However, the bust on both sizes I ordered (4 and 6) did not fit properly at all. In fact, the dresses sagged low on my chest, which is strange as I have a larger size bust.

dress fit perfectly, bottom wasn't too full aka didn't make you look bigger than you are
I am slightly larger on the bottom, and have small bust, so this dress was perfect! The top fit snuggly for a strapless (YES a strapless dress that will actually stay up!! high five to my small chested girls). The bottom was loose without adding extra pounds where you don't need them. IT was short too, which I love! Awesome dress, even lasted through dancing all night! 2 thumbs up!!

Perfect for senior homecoming
I loved this dress! I wore it to my senior homecoming. It was a perfect dress to dance in. I rented the size 2 and 4. I ended up wearing the four because I have a bigger bust, and the two felt right on my chest area. Throughout the night, though, I kept having to pull the dress up because it felt too loose around my chest! I would definitely recommend sizing down. Other than that, I had a great experience. Great dress, great quality, great service! This was my first time using rent the runway and I will definitely be using it again.

LOVED IT
I wore this dress to my school dance and It was exactly was I was hoping for and more! It flowed and was easy to move in and I was still able to have a good time. I will definitely be renting this one again because this is my favorite rental so far.

The service and help was incredible and the dress BEAUTIFUL!
This dress was not my first choice. I ordered one before and it did not fit right so I emailed RTR for help and they sent one the next day! The service and help was incredible! I LOVED how the dress fell and it had this leather feeling to the top half that I really liked. The top however was really big so I would recommend going down a size fro extra support. Also the side of the dress where the corset wire was had already been broken through and kept gabbing me in the side, which hurt after a while.

This dress made me look beautiful!
The dress was a little large. I usually wear a size 6, and the 4 was a little big on me. The material was very flattering. I loved the way the skirt hung. It wasn't too tight, but there wasn't so much material that I was drowning in it. This is my favorite dress on RTR>

The perfect dress for a crush party!
I absolutely loved this dress. It was perfect for a party that wasn't too formal but I still needed to look put together for. My only complaint was that it ran a little big. I definitly could have used the size 2. I would definitly rent again!

This was my first time using RTR and I was happy all around!
I wore this to my high school homecoming.The bust area was a bit large so I sized down. It was very flowy! This dress was very flattering in pictures! I loved it! Although it was a bit short so I couldn't exactly bend over if I dropped something.

Perfect LBD for a casual date
As always, Rebecca Taylor is amazingly feminine and fun. This is a cute dress that can be played up with fun jewelry and heels (or very easily styled with flats). I would not recommend for a special occasion as this is nowhere near "dressy".

I paired this dress up with a chunky gold necklace and fun heels!
The dress runs a little large, but it's a little bit short. I am usually a size 4 but the size 2 was a better fit. Great dress! I got a ton of compliments and would definitely wear it again.

The dress was super comfortable and very flattering! Yet runs a bit large.
The skirt is quite full, but a perfect length and very proportional. It runs a bit large, so the bodice was a bit too large, particularly in the chest. But overall loved it!!

Loved the dress!
The fit was definitely was flattering! Overall the dress was amazing. However, the top of the dress was EXTREMELY stretched out. The boning in the bodice was popping out due to excessive wear and was really uncomfortable. Would have been perfect if it wasn't so worn out. Definitely size down.

LOVE this dress. Perfect simplicity and elegance.
I rented this dress for a wedding when the original dress I chose arrive damaged, and I'm almost glad it happened! This dress is absolutely beautiful and perfect for someone with a petite figure. Classic Rebecca Taylor fit and style. The picture on the model doesn't even do it justice... the skirt movement made me feel like Baby in Dirty Dancing. I wore this to a black tie optional wedding with nude peeptoe Mary Jane's and chandelier earrings, which added just the right touch! I got compliments all night long.

Everyone loved the dress!
The fit was perfect. I ordered a 4 and 6, but wore the 6 so I could wear a bra and have more support. The 4 would have fit perfectly however without a bra. I got lots of compliments on this dress! It is very comfortable and easy.

Loved this dress!
I rented this dress for my daughter for her homecoming dance. She loved it! She said it was super comfortable and she didn't have to tug on it at all. It fit just snug enough and had a little stretch. The flowy bottom was very complimentary. The red shoes made it pop! It was a little short but because of the flowy bottom it made it sweet and sassy. She wore 2.5 inch Nike Pro compression shorts underneath so was never worried about being indecent. She normally wears between a 0 and 2. The 2 was definitely too big and the 0 fit perfectly. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Comfortable and flattering
This dress was exactly what I was looking for for my junior semi. The dress ran large in the bodice and in order to wear it without a bra I went with the smaller size (4) however if I had ordered a 2 I would've gone with that. I am normally a four or a six. This dress is extremely flattering to all body shapes and it's perfect if you want something simple but attractive at the same time. I definitely recommend it.

this dress is perfect and a little jewelry can make it formal.
i rented this dress for homecoming last year and as my homecoming this year is nearing everyone keeps asking me to buy mine and i just proudly say "i dont own it i rented it off RTR". this dress is the perfect simple little black dress and can be dressed up in a few simple ways. i also rented coral pink Kenneth Lane earrings and it went perfectly. this dress is absolutely stunning and i dont think i will ever forget the great experience i had with renting it and wearing it. i wish i owned this dress!!

Seamless process with RTR. Will definitely be renting again!
Loved this dress! I usually wear a 4 but decided to wear the 2 for a snugger fit up top. The bodice part is very fitted and the skirt has a lot more fabric than I was expecting but I ended up loving it.

I wore it for my birthday party, great to dance in.
It looked different in person than online, fabric was soft cooton-like and not satin-like as it looks in the pic. More casual than formal but fun to dance in and as far as I remember, pretty comfy.

The service was great! Amazing dress for a wedding. It was light and flattering. I ordered the 6 and the 8, I didn't even try on the 8 because the 6 fit perfectly, if not a little bit big. I can't wait to use Rent the Runway again!

Classy and fitting for every occassion
This is an adorable dress, and I tried it on in stores before deciding to rent for my event. That said, while rent the runway is a great deal, you are not renting a brand new dress off the hanger in a store. I wore the 0, which though still a great dress has definitely seen some wear. There were some snags in the skirt and the bodice was very stretched out from (obviously because it's so cute) being rented many times. Overall, a feminine dress appropriate for almost any event - go down a size if you're normally a two, and don't expect a brand new dress that's never been worn before.

This classic LBD is great to accessorize with!
I wore this to the senior prom as a member of prom committee. It was really easy to fit and didn't move on my body much, which was great considering I was running around all night helping with problems at the prom. The waist and top half are fitted, but the bottom is very loose and it flows........I would recommend wearing Spanx with these just in case the bottom flies up. It's also shorter than I thought it would be. It wasn't a problem, but this is a great dress for shorter girls! Overall, I got many compliments on how it fitted so well and would definitely rent this again!

Wanted to love this dress, but it is just too short
This dress is gorgeous. It is flattering and the stretchy sides of the bodice make it a great fit. But I can't get past the length. It's entirely too short. I read other reviews, but thought I could pull it off with my legs. I was wrong. It's just inappropriate and is going back unworn. (Sigh.)

The dress was just perfect - Flattery, Fun, Classic. Felt great in it!
I'm usually a 6, but I ordered the 4, based on other reviews that it ran a bit large - and it fit perfectly. I wore it to my law school formal and got a ton of compliments. It was a great dress for a formal event with a lot of dancing. I would definitely recommend it!

awesome to get 2 sizes, easy return shipping, adorable dress
I ordered an 8 and a 10, and even the 8 felt a little big. However, it was still easy to wear and very comfortable! I loved the double sided tape they sent too! It is loose and flowy on the bottom so it felt short to me because I couldn't feel the fabric touching my legs but it wasn't actually too short. It was great with heels and flats both and super cute/flattering! :)

Cute & comfortable
I wore this dress to a bachelorette party and it was perfect the occasion - fun, flirty and very comfortable for a night of partying. My only complaint is that it was very short. It was a chilly night, so I wore black tights with it any way... but if I didn't have the tights I probably wouldn't be comfortable wearing it out in public since it was so short.

I rented it as a second option for a junior prom and I didn't wear it but I still liked the fit
I really liked the fit, especially on the top; it was stretchy so I could actually breath. The bottom skirt part was really twirl-able and super cute, but it was a little short.

Perfect dress for junior prom.
Dresses are usually a little long for me, but this dress fit me perfectly in a size 0 (my usual size). It was very flattering and classic. I wore it to a more semi-formal event, but you can definitely dress it down or up. Overall, a great dress that you would not regret renting!
