Beautiful dress

This dress was by far my favorite rent the runway dress. I almost bought it, that's how much I loved it. The slit was classy enough so you could wear to a more formal event if needed. I ended up wearing this to a rehearsal dinner and got so many compliments! Fit is true to size but be prepared to either not wear a bra or wear a now show bra in the back.

Too small

Warning back is much more open and has buttons in the back. Was way too small. Barely fit my arms and could not button it shut in the back. Would get again in a 4 perhaps? Not really work appropriate due to the exposure in the back.

Gorgeous dress

The print and fit of this dress was really pretty. I loved the modest neckline and the open back and slit sexed it up just the right amount. I received compliments all night long. One thing to note, the middle button of the back seems to come off easily. It was missing from my back up size and I noticed at the end of the night it had loosened up a little bit on the dress I wore. Still absolutely love this dress.

Beautiful dress! Rich fabric, lovely slit and back details

Fit is true to size, although I wish it would have hugged my waist more and squeezed my arms in less! The color is darker than the picture and the slit means serious business. Although my arms felt a bit restricted, it was still comfortable and I danced in it all night.

Flattering and chic

Originally thought I would wear to a night out but it was actually perfect for a work to cocktail hour transition. Very flattering on my fuller chest, was a bit surprised by how far up the slit went but actually didn't have any issues wearing to work. Would love to buy this dress

Looks better in photos.

I loved this dress in the photos but I didn't love the fit of it on me. The shoulders were a bit puffy and the slit was very high. I wanted to wear it to a wedding but it looked too casual on. Cute print but it just didn't work for me.

Absolutely loved this dress!!

Wore this dress to a Fall wedding with some booties and it was perfect! The 6 wasn't available which is my true size, but after reading to comments about the chest and arms being a bit small I decided to go with the 8 and it fit great! You can't wear a bra with this dress, so since I was short on time I wore my black bikini top and fixed the ties to be where the back buttons are, so it looked like the ties were apart of the dress. It worked perfectly and was very comfortable. The slit is high and sexy and the back is gorgeous. Definitely would buy this dress if I could.

Surprise hit!

I rented this on a whim after a few other styles didn't work out. I'm usually a 10 or 12 and hadn't liked the way other dresses were fitting my "winter body." This seemed really fitted so I was not expecting it to fit but it looked GREAT - grazed right over my problem areas. The long sleeves and length were perfect for a fall wedding, and the back and slit made it special. I topped it with a leather jacket, nude heels and bold lip. I didn't wear a bra but didn't feel like I needed one. One thing to note - when I tried it on initially, the sleeves were tight, but they do stretch and loosen up.

The event

The dress is cute, however the slit in the front was really high. I had to pin it. I'm 5'6 The fabric was also not super comfy. Not much movement of stretch. I wouldn't recommend

Perfect for fall wedding!

I loved this dress! I thought the slit would be too scandalous but it was honestly fine and the sleeves balance it out. The sleeves were a little tight but not bothersome. Would rent again!

This dress is amaz-z-zing

Unfortunately, I was unable to wear this dress because I got it as a backup dress and the size was too small. I will definitely try renting again in my usual 4/6 size! The slit is high and super sexy, without being overdone and the material is thick enough to wear in the cooler spring/fall weather. The pattern also gives you enough va-va-voom to wear to a day time party or to an evening get together.

Not for me

Was excited about reviews on the addition of this designer to RTR. This dress just want for me- too long, made me look more "hippy" than I am and hence self conscious.

Beautiful but back has issues

This dress is so unique and beautiful. I was so excited to wear and so disappointed that I ended up not being able to. The material is thin but still substantial enough that I didn't have to wear a bra, and I'm a 34F. The only problem I had was the lower back. The open back is fine, but it was gaping open on the lower part and it made me look like I was busting out of it. The top part, chest, and waist fit like a glove. Such a shame because it's a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind dress. And the slit on the leg is soooo sexy. What a shame that I couldn't wear it. Would be perfect if the back was totally zipped up.

Beautiful, but not best quality

I ordered up a size based on previous experiences with Reformation and the reviews. The 6 fit me like a small 4. The dress was beautiful and was super flattering. I absolutely loved the slit- it felt sexy without being too much. I got tons of compliments! The reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is that when I bent down to adjust my shoe, the middle back button popped right off. I knew this was a risk based on previous reviews, but I was definitely still disappointed at how easily it popped off.

That perfect LBD- long sleeve long black dress

I am so in love with this dress! On a chilly NYC day, I felt cozy and warm in this Reformation dress. Was going to pair it with OTK boots, but that slit is perfection! The material itself is not too thin, not too thick. Breathable. Has a zip at the back butt area and then two buttons to fasten around back and neck, so exposed a little back. My hair covered it, but could easily wear a long top underneath if you want extra coverage. I belted it to accentuate the waist area. Love love love so much and am considering purchasing! True to size. Can wear in every season, as well! Must rent!!

Perfect dress for a fancy dinner with my husband!

I rented this for my anniversary trip with my husband and it fit like a glove. I knew the weather would be cold, so this dress was perfect. The length is great for colder months, but the slit is the perfect amount of sexy! FYI Sticky boobs or no bra with this one.

Cute dress but didn't work for me

The dress runs small so I didn't get to wear it. I got it on but felt like I'd rip the sleeves off if I moved my arms. The slit was also very high on me since I'm tall. I wouldn't have felt comfortable wearing it. This dress would probably be best for thinner people.

One of my favs

I really loved this rental. Wore it to a wedding in Sonoma and it was perfect for the occasion. I love that it's modest but sexy with the slit. I wore chicken cutlets for the bra and it worked perfectly.

Beautiful dress but semi weird fit

I wore this dress to a charity event and it was beautiful. I am bigger busted so it was very tight through the shoulders/chest and then loose on the waist. I love the slit it was super sexy!

Beautiful dress!

Wore this for a fall wedding, received tons of compliments. I will state the sleeves are what runs small on this dress, the fabric has very little stretch to it. It's open back so everything else fit rather well.

That slit!

Wonderful dress that made my night! Received tons of compliments. The slit was high, yet tasteful enough for a formal event. I ended up sizing up to fit my arms. It was still tight but became more comfortable as the night went on. Would rent again!!

The slit is everything

Beautiful dress. Sized small - especially in the arms. I'm normally a 6-8 in dresses and barely could fit in the 12. The dress did have a strong odor after taking it out of the bag and gave me a rash on my chest after trying it on. Was unable to wear to my event but the dress was beautiful. Material is on the thinner side too.

Unique and fun dress

Overall I loved the dress - the cons were that the arms are a bit tight as others have said, as well as one of the buttons on the back popped off when I bent to pick something up.

Classy

Fit perfectly. My only issue was the sleeves had permanent wrinkles in the elbow creases from being worn often. The button in the back was poorly sewn and detached by the end of the night. Otherwise I really liked the fit and style of the dress overall. Size 4 was perfect for my measurements.

Perfect Amount of Floral

I received this dress with tags still on. It was beautiful. Great fit, a little snug, so I did wear a size up. The open back dips low, so be aware that high waisted spanx will show. I opted for a sticky bra to avoid anything showing in the back. Perfect light material for an outdoor evening summer wedding!

Soo pretty!

The other reviews are true! The arms are soooooo tight and the slit is pretty high. I only didn't wear because even though I got my arms in it it was eventually gonna drive me crazy. Definitely will rent again but in a larger size. I recommend going two sizes up unless you have sticks for arms.

Compliments all day! And comfortable.

Lots of yes on this dress, Reformation is a great brand. My insta blew up after posting a picture, everyone asking about the dress (I'm not an influencer). I wore it for a cold winter wedding, it wasn't super warm but it fit the vibe. You could wear this in much more moderate climate, the fabric isn't too thick or hot. I ended up wearing a size 8 which is my normal, for reference I'm 5'7" about 155lbs, 27yo, hourglass shape. So my smallest point is the rib/waist area, which is also the smallest point of this dress. Take note of that if you're shaped opposite (apple, straight) maybe size up a bit. Last thing, you can't wear a normal bra because the back is somewhat open. I wore stickies. Enjoy!

Elegant with a little edge

Loved this dress! The slit makes it and gives it a little edge to the otherwise rather conservative dress. I wore the larger size as the upper arms were rather tight.
