My favorite dress I have rented!
Have never had so many compliments! I am Spanish, my hips are very wide and the medium was exact. It is a hip hugging dress, but has a lot of stretch to, sitting wasn't a problem. Didn't have to wear a bra, best part!

Great formal or cocktail dress
Did not actually wear this dress, but it looked great and felt comfortable. A little tight in the hip area, but I have big hips. Overall a very elegant choice for either a formal event or a cocktail party.

Memorable dress with right amount of class and edge.
I'm very petite and this fit like a glove....very fitted, and flattering. I would usually need to alter, but this was spot on.

Loved this dress!
An amazing twist on the classic LBD.. this is perfect for someone who wants to look sexy without being too overdone. The little cutouts on the side were perfect, but the only thing was that the underneath piece around the mid section runs a bit tight and the buttons were extremely hard to do.

Sleek & sexy
This dress was gorgeous. It was very fitted thru body so order a size up. I did have a problem with the bust area, it was a little too tight. I am 32 DD.

Very fun lbd for non traditional weddings or events.
The buttons on the back are super hard to work with. Make sure you have a girl or friend with small fingers to close the buttons or open them. It definitely runs small. I would have preferred L but the M worked. Just a little snug. Not for big busted girls. The panel across the chest is tight. If you have a group to help you get in and out of the dress, it's a perfect cocktail/formal option

Modern, fun and sophisticated!
As others have said, this dress is incredibly tight but it's comfortable. The bra section is hard to button without assistance. And due to the stretchy fabric, the bandeau puckers at each button. All that said, I received compliments all night long and felt great!! I love RTR!

the dress was everything and more, my first time using RTR & I am obsessed!
I run small in generally everything and the medium was almost too tight, but I made it work!

Perfect for formal NYE wedding!
I wore this dress to a formal wedding on NYE, and it was perfect for the occasion. I received several compliments. The dress was in great shape and the material is thick and sleek-looking. I did notice that the buttons on the back (visible when wearing) had been replaced. I'm 5'3" so was worried about the length but it was not any issue. The top of the XS fit perfectly, but the lower half was very tight. I also ordered the S as a back up, but the top was too loose on me. I ended up wearing the XS. It loosened up a bit throughout the night, but I'd definitely recommend ordering a size up as a back up. Overall, I was incredibly happy with this dress and would highly recommend it, especially for my petite friends.

Great dress design. Very chic and comfortable
Great style dress and size large fit perfect. Not too tight. If you do get the dress make sure to look at the slit I the back- mine had loose stitching and tore up the back.

Loved the way this fit. I am tall and this length was perfect ankle length and did not look awkward. Very good material that is double lined so need for spanxs or tights. I felt like I was on the red carpet!

Beautiful dress but VERY tight!
Loved this dress so much. Got so many compliments. Great for a black tie affair. No bra necessary. Size up for your backup size. It runs very small from the stomach down!

Super flattering, but very tight
Overall, I loved this dress. So temped to just buy it so I can wear it more often. All the reviews that say it runs small, though, are not exaggerating. I normally wear a small, ended up wearing the medium but almost would have wanted to go up to a large. Though it does not look too tight (in person as well as photos), it was very uncomfortable to sit in through dinner and a show. If your bust is any bigger than a B, you probably won't be able to button the piece that wraps around the chest. Loved it and would wear it again, but might size up.

Endless compliments.
As other ladies mentioned, the dress runs small. I'm pear shaped and the medium was definitely the way to go! (Note I normally wear 0/xs) This dress is just the most stunning combination of clean lines and a little sex appeal. The cut outs are modest enough that I felt comfortable and appropriate at a black tie optional wedding in November. May be my favorite rental ever.

My dress came on time, I loved it!, and it was easy to return
Loved this dress!!! This was my first time using rent the runway and it did not disappoint. I am usually a medium but read the reviews and saw that it was very tight. The large wasn't available so I only had a choice to select medium. I would have liked to try the large to see if I had a little more room in it, but the medium worked out great. Definitely would recommend for a wedding or any formal occasion!

So classy and elegant!
I ordered the small and medium as my back up. The small was a tad too small around the waist but when I put on the medium, the shoulder straps fell down. Overall, an amazing dress. Fit like a glove! Would definitely rent again!

Chic, classy, and one of a kind LBD!
This is my favorite LBD worn to date! I loved the tight fit and detailing. I received many compliments in the dress and would love to wear it again! I'm typically a S or XS in dresses and the S fit like a glove with minimal wiggle room. I wish I could buy it:)

Compliments galore!
This was my backup dress, but once I tried it on, it was clear it was *the* dress! I received so many compliments on it, and was only slightly terrified I'd tear it (I didn't, but it is a tight fit).

Unique, runs small!
Loved wearing this dress. I'm petite so liked that it was long and formal but not all the way to the floor. It runs SO SMALL. I'm usually an extra small and wore the medium. Size up for fuller bottom/thighs. Also, the buttons were nearly impossible to fasten, given very small and non-stretchy button loops. Overall was very happy.

Sexy yet classy
Definitely runs small and had some success find of wear and tear . It was a bit of squeeze and probably the M would had been a better fit but it wasn't available, yet between my two other back up dresses this is the one that got the overwhelming vote . Perfect for a formal event that doesn't require conservative dress code .

Unforgettable sexy black dress
This dress was perfect for a black tie wedding. Heavy material, yet light enough to wear on a warm day. Although the dress is advertised as midi length it fit a few inches above the ankle on me. No bra needed as the material is thick enough. Loved this dress and so glad I sized up!

This dress was super tight but it's an expensive tight. There are no stretch lines because the fabric is awesome. You can do just about anything in this dress but walk up stairs! I got tons of compliments and it looked great when it was photographed from the side :)

Classy yet sassy! A fun and chic dress!
This dress was gorgeous! Compliments all evening. The reviews are correct it is very fitted and doesn't have a lot of give. Be ready to suck it in bc Spanx are not an option! The tube top was a bit snug and I don't have a large cup size. This was not the most comfortable dress but the chic look was worth the effort!

Wish It Had Worked!
This dress is so beautiful, but like the other reviewers have said, it runs very small in the hip area. I'm a true 4 and wanted to wear this so badly, so when all that was available was a size Small, I took the chance and rented it. Unfortunately, it was way too tight for comfort on the bottom :(. Next time, I'll go with a Medium.

Very modern design in classic black - narrow through hips!! Size up!
I loved the modern cut outs, fun length and appreciated that the material has some stretch - but wow, so tight through the hips! I did wear the small but was hesitant at first. Walking was possible thanks to the back slit but mobility was definitely limited. This dress may not be the best for curvier ladies. Bra wasn't necessary but you do need someone to help with the buttons on the back to get the dress on/off.

Stylist Review
I am absolutely in love with the fit of this dress and the peep of skin under the best. It has a slight stretch, however it extremely tight especially in the hip area. I recommend sizing up a size or two for the back up. A strapless bra can be worn with this dress.

This was my first time using Rent the Runway and I loved it!
The dress runs a little small in the waist and a little big in the shoulder area, If you have slightly broader shoulders, this would fit perfectly. Great dress altogether tho and wonderful material.

Great Shape & Fabric but VERY tight!
The originally dress I ordered didn't come in so I had to look for an alternative last minute. After reading other reviews I had a feeling that the Medium was going to be too tight (I'm usually a small 2-4), but that was the biggest size available. I am 5'5 and 126 lbs Bust: 32D, but smaller chested Waist: 27 Hips: 35 I believe I am considered athletic/thin but do have a lager butt. This dress is made for a women with a flat stomach and curves. I would not recommend this dress to something without that body type. I had to buy spanx for the first time and still had a little pouch. It's also not easy to dance in as it is very fitted from the wait down. However, if you are on the petite side its gorgeous, you just need to have the body for it. I think the Large would have been perfect but maybe too big in the shoulders since Im only 5'5.

A unique and modern LBD with sex appeal.
Although there is some stretch to the thick fabric, this dress is VERY tight. No bra needed, I am a 34B and the bandeau fit perfectly in place. I am 5'2" and found the straps to be a bit too long so that they looked slouchy - I would prefer they be taut. The length of the skirt was perfect on me and the hugging fit showed off my "assets". The waist cut in, so I would not recommend if you hold your weight in the waist area, nor would I recommend for a large bust. I would recommend for petite ladies with longer torsos.

Definitely a head turning dress!
This dress is TIGHT with very little give in the fabric. I am tall and lean but I felt like I was in a sausage casing and couldn't wait to get the dress off at the end of the night. For the price I thought the fabric would be a tad more luxurious, but the design is super modern and stunning and I received compliments all night. It is tricky to get in and out of- you will need a extra set of hands for the buttons on the boob strap piece and to zip you in! Great dress for taller girls as it is a midi length and hits about 4 inches above the ankle.
