The fit was incredibly flattering. I am usually a size 8 but the 10 gave the peplum skirt more lift.
Perfect for an hourglass shape. Very light and comfortable. Dress stays in place while dancing; no need to keep pulling it up.

Great wedding anniversary dress!
This is one of my favorite RTR dresses I've gotten. While I think it runs small, especially in the booty (I've been a 0 in every other RTR dress), the size 2 fit great! I felt stunning in this dress. Would absolutely rent again and buy if I could. My husband couldn't stop complimenting me!

Beautiful dress, a little tight in the waist and long for a petite person but I wore 3" heels and felt great for my birthday party

Very cute!
This dress was really pretty but I ended up wearing my own dress. I was going to use it for an event but it was a little too edgy for the look I was going for. Cute dress though! 0 fit like a glove.

Classy, elegant, and sexy
I fell in love with this dress immediately when I saw it online. My husband thought it didn't look exciting as most of the women attending the party would wear black. But the moment that I put it on, he couldn't take his eyes off me. It made my body look so sexy. I will buy it if it's on sale.

Gorgeous elegant dress!!! Beautiful fit with a sexy elegant look.
size 0 fit beautifully, although a bit loose by bust area. But still a beautiful dress. I am extremely satisfied with the entire look and fit of this dress. Highly recommended!!!!

Total Hit!
When I initially saw this dress I was worried about the top fitting ok because I always have problems finding strapless dresses. This dress fit great! It has a little stretch to it which is great for comfort and fit! I received tons of compliments on the dress! The lace is beautiful! I hope I have another event to wear this dress to! You'll love it!

Classy and elegant
I really liked this dress, and it made me feel like a knockout. I thought the overall fit of the dress was nice, however it was a little too big in the bust for me while fitting well everywhere else. The overall condition of the dress was great, the lace was in tact and barely looked worn. Would recommend!

A CLASSIC!!!!
I usually wear a size 2R and I did as well in this dress but it was a little tighter than other size 2's that I have worn basically in the bust area I just needed assistance zipping it up in the back there was no way I could do it!! But I still recommend getting it in a size you normally wear bc the rest of dress fit perfectly. I ordered a size 4 as a back up and didn't even bother trying it on bc I could tell the bottom part would have been loose. Another thing I kind of wish it was shorter on me bc I'm not that tall like the model it comes above her knee(it was right on my knee) maybe if I ordered petite it would have been that way, but my family loved the dress and I received so many compliments so I think its just me!!! Overall beautiful dress can't go wrong with loved it!!!

Flattering and retro
I rented this for a prom-themed party and it was *perfect*. It was a throw back to the dresses I loved growing up but is totally updated and modern. The lace is stretchy and comfortable, so I think most body types could fit this. That said, I'm pretty narrow in the hips, so if you are hippy it could be a bit tight. The length is long but since it is a pencil skirt, it is still very attractive. I sized up to a six because I've got a longer body and didn't want to constantly be pulling the dress up - I'm glad I did, because I need the extra fabric for length and coverage. All in all, a totally fun party dress.

Incredible dress!!!
This is an absolutely gorgeous dress! I got a ton of compliments! It does run a bit small and is a bit tight but after wearing the dress for a an hour or so I got used to the tight fit. I would suggest going up a size if you prefer a looser fit. I will be renting this one again and I did not want to give it back!! .

Loved this dress
Rented this dress for a wedding. Loved the material and style of the dress. The fit was true to size, but did run a little snug on the bottom. Rec'd tons of compliments all night. I was a little weary about it being strapless and that I would have to be pulling it up all night. but that issue never came up. It was a perfect fit and a perfect dress for a perfect evening.

classy dress that stands out from the standard LBD
I wore this dress to a black tie NYE party. It highlighted my curvy figure and I got tons of compliments all night. I was worried that I would have trouble fitting into the top but managed to squeeze in and it was very flattering on a large bust. The only part of the dress that was slightly uncomfortable was the lace peplum. The rest of the dress is a little stretchy but that part has no give at all so by the end of the night it felt like the waist was digging in.

Good, not great
I rented this dress for an outdoor wedding in San Fran and received a lot of compliments...but I'm not going to lie, it wasn't my favorite and I do wish I had picked something else. Why? Well I can't quite put my finger on it -- but it was definitely true to size or on the smaller side (even though others thought it ran large, I did not), and I just didn't feel like "me" in it. I think it's because 1) very formfitting and I usually don't wear all-over formfitting dresses, and 2) the lace looks different in person (I thought it would be black lace over cream, but it was black lace over white fabric and I wasn't a huge fan. I would say if you love lace and form fitting dresses then you will have no problem...I just wasn't a huge fan because mainly because the black - stark white did not mesh well with my pale skin.

This dress was very pretty, but I couldn't get the top half to stay up. It was my backup anyway.
I felt like my proportions weren't right for this dress. Like I was tugging the top half up and trying to make the waist stay where it was. It was my backup dress anyway, so I just packed it back up.

No stretch or give in the chest area
This dress is more gorgeous and flattering in person than in the photo! Its fun, flirty, with a retro vibe. I planned on wearing it to a Mad Men themed black and white cocktail party. It just didn't fit quite right. :( I have trouble with getting the right fit for my body since I have a smaller waist, but bigger chest/back/shoulders. I ordered size 4 and 6 in hopes that they would work. The 4 fit just like a size 4 would in the waist, however, the chest was very snug and had no give or stretch to it. The 6 fit my chest perfectly, but the waist was huge. I would say that this dress is better for someone curvy all around or straight and slim with no curves. Again, GOREGOUS dress though!

A bit Disappointed
The dress/material was okay. Once I tried it on, it looked too 'maternal' for my taste. Besides it being a bit long on me, the peplum (flap) on the waist seemed a bit short in proportion to the whole dress. I returned this dress in exchange for a much better BCBG dress.

Very helpful when I needed to make an exchanged. Got dress in time for occasion.
Unfortunately the dress didn't fit the way I would have liked. The lace black material in the midsection was not flattering to my body type- it fell in the wrong place. I recommend the dress for slim and slender. Gorgeous dress, I wish I could have worn it!

Great Dress
This is a great dress! I needed the size 2 to accommodate my bust size. The dress looks amazing on and the peplum covers any kind of bloat so no spanx needed! I wore regular panty hose with no worries! Received alot of compliments. This dress makes a statement!

I wore this for a James Bond themed holiday party and it definitely fit the bill. Sleek and sexy but still modest and sophisticated. Comfortable despite the close fit, very lady-like.

Perfect for a winter evening wedding!
Loved the dress. I ordered a 6 & 8 because most of the reviews said it fit small, especially in the hips. It was snug but not uncomfortable. I was a little worried I'd bust the seams because there's no stretch and had to be careful when I sat down. The top was a little loose, which was concerning but not surprising. I wear a 32B and am very narrow through the ribs. So my dresses are always big on top and small on the bottom! Luckily I had double sided tape so my dress stayed in place :) Very classy and sexy dress.

The dress fit well and was comfortable. Sexy but classy.
Only con was that there seems to be a small rip in the lace in the back so I felt like there was a little circle showing the white under-lace. I noticed it when I tried the dress on and was a little conscious about that throughout the night. Probably not noticeable to others but noticeable to me.

This was my first RentTheRunway experience and I would definitely do it again!
When I first received the dress I wasn't CRAZY about it. I have wide hips so I wasn't sure if the fit was very flattering; however, I ended up loving it! It fit true to size; except, there isn't much room to move around the legs. The top fit great though; it didn't slide down at all during the night. Also I originally order the Janis Savitt 'Crystalized Blue Mum Earrings' that the model is wearing in the picture; however, I didn't like how they looked with the dress in person. So I ended up switching them with the Ben-Amun 'Love Letter Earrings'

Such an elegant dress and not too short.
I wore this to my company holiday party and it was a great choice. I wanted something long enough so it would still be work appropriate but was worried that it being strapless wouldn't be conservative enough for a professional event. I wore a shawl to cover my shoulders, but after a while felt so good in the dress that I took it off and didn't care. It was so elegant and feminine that I just wanted to show it off. I am usually a 6 in the top and 8 in the bottom (I have wide hips). I ordered both sizes and the 6 wouldn't zip up, but the 8 fit right. The peplum waist was great in covering up my stomach area so I didn't have to worry about looking bloated after the buffet dinner. :)
