Gorgeous lacy dress!
The dress is fitted and accents your curves. The dress flares out a lil so it helps hide some tummy pooch. No need for spanx! Inside of the dress on the back is also a latch which helps cinches in the area under the bust so you can wear a strapfree bra or even go braless without feeling naked up top. While the dress appears to hit the model mid-thigh, it hit me just above the knees for my short stature (5'3"). I loved this length on me! Ribcage area is a lil snug so you might need to size up if you have a wider ribcage area or bust. I tried on the next size up and while it was more comfy in that area, the excess room in the chest and hip area was no bueno! Way too roomie. I have a small chest (34A). The capped sleeves look like it might hinder arm movement, but I was able to lift and hold my two kids all night without a problem. The lace around the collar of the dress is free standing and tends to flop down in the front. The lace around the cap sleeves stays up just fine though.

The dress is beautiful and comfortable! While I had to work with it a little to get it to fit me the right way I would recommend it to anyone looking for a simple black dress.

Great fit.
I rented this dress as a back up to a different dress. This ended up being the most flattering. I wear between a 6 and an 8. 6 fit the best. A bit short if I needed to bend over to pick something up, but not terrible. I definitely got compliments on this dress! It was very appropriate for black tie optional Wedding in April in NJ. Tricky to find the right dress bc Jersey weddings have endless food and the weather can be beautiful and warm or cold and snowing. I ate tons of delicious food and was able to dance without problems. Very comfortable. My one negative is that I couldn't raise my arms over my head while dancing, so very little Jersey fist pumping for me. Otherwise a fab dress. 1st rental. Very easy process. I will be renting for my next occasion!

I loved this dress and it arrived on time and in good condition!!
This dress fit perfect! Was true to size. I absolutely loved this dress and felt very comfortable in it all night. Added bonus is the top fits very snug (but not too tight) so you don't have to wear a bra. I wore this dress to a formal charity event and received many complements on it. I would rent it again for sure!!

Pretty Lace but Narrow in Hips & Shoulders
Thought this dress was well made and lace was pretty but the hips were way too narrow for a pear shaped person. Usually a 2/4 in Shoshanna fits me perfectly but this dress is very narrow. As others commented the shoulders especially are quite tight. Very elegant dress but not for me.

Great dress, perfect for any wedding or special occasion!
This dress is beautiful, and I got a ton of compliments on it! It does run true to size, however for a shape like mine (hourglass - small on top, heavier in the middle / bottom), it was not ideal for sitting through a whole wedding for 5-6 hours. It was fitted in the middle and loose on top in the chest / shoulder area. I could never have gone a size up because it would have been swimming on top, but then probably a little more comfy on the hips. It was great for being up and dancing though ... overall very happy with my rental experience!

Very flattering fit. I felt really comfortable all night long. Dress was easy to move/dance in.
No real cons to this one. The style was great, timeless. The fit was true to size. My only concern was that the shoulders were a little big for me (small chest) but if I were to have gone one size down, there is no way my butt/thighs would have fit.

Grandparents Funeral
I rented this for my grandparents funeral. I had lost a bunch of weight recently and didn't have time to go out and shop! I had to go up a size just because it was tight across the chest and made me have back cleavage, yuck! Although my luggage got lost the way out to my destination and i didnt have my dress for the funeral itself, i was able to change into afterwards for the rest of the events that day. It was super cute and i received tons of compliments.

Loved the lace detailing!
I was a little nervous about renting this dress as a bridesmaid dress for my brother's wedding, so I had three backup dresses ready but didn't need them. It's a really beautiful dress and the lace makes it a bit different from the standard LBD. The fabric has absolutely no stretch and I ended up wearing the bigger size because it felt more comfortable. I got many compliments all night long and would definitely recommend it for someone looking for a special LBD.

Nice lbd but not for my occasion
Cute little black dress with great lace detail. Fit was tight around the shoulders and I don't consider my shoulders to be beyond average width. I didn't end up wearing it because I'm looking for something for my honeymoon and decided I didn't want black. Would have been nice to wear to dinner though. Loved the open back detail . I usually wear between a 2-4 and this size 4 fit me well other than the tight shoulders. Would probably rent again for the right occasion

wish I owned it!
I loved the fit of this dress! It was forgiving in all the right places with me being wider in the hips. The lace was very nice quality, and I loved that it was high in the front but open a bit more in the back so it wasn't too stuffy :) It was the perfect length for me, and I was comfortable wearing taller heels to the wedding without feeling like it showed too much leg. Really do wish I owned it!

Pretty LBD!
I got this as a last-minute backup dress (thanks RTR for awesome customer service!) and really liked it! Comfortable all night, cut is flattering on an hourglass shape, short enough to show a little leg without showing too much. I liked the lace illusion neckline for a little more chest coverage. My only negative comment was that the neckline is a little high and snug- sat above my collarbone and was a little tight at the front of my neck - it didn't bother me too much, just something to be aware of.

So many compliments!!!
I rented this dress for my best friend's wedding where I was a personal attendant. I got so many compliments on it and everyone kept asking where I got it from. I did wear a spanx slip underneath because it did just smooth the lines of my bra and underwear but it was very comfortable to wear and move. I would definitely wear/rent again!

Bridesmaid Dress
This dress was pretty but not one of my favorites I've rented. I found that the center seam wasn't very flattering on me, but I also don't have much of a waist. The lace detail and boat neck was very feminine.

Pretty dress.
I didn't actually end up wearing this dress because I liked my back up dress better, but it did fit for the most part. The lace was beautiful and I liked the open back a lot. The only caution I have is for athletic girls with broad shoulders. It was a little tight across my neck because of my shoulders...I still could have worn it in a pinch though.

Nice looking dress
I wore this dress to perform in a concert. I am reliably a size 6 and that is the size that fit. (5'7", 150 lb). I wore a strapless bra with it as straps would show under the lace. Overall, it was comfortable, although the sleeves dug into my shoulders a bit, but I have swimmer arms, so maybe not everyone would experience that! A bit short for sitting in on stage, so I wore black tights. I thought it looked good and would wear it again.

Classic Stunner!
I ordered a size up from my normal size in order to accommodate my hips (per the sizing notes) and am glad I did. This dress is incredibly flattering - especially on a new mama's body. I am 16 weeks postpartum in the photo. The length is perfect for a formal cocktail party and the lace detailing gives it a classic, Jackie O. look. The dress is comfortable, easily moves with you when you stand, sit and dance. You do need to wear a strapless bra.

I got a lot of compliments on this dress, however it was tight in my rib cage.
This dress was very pretty and appropriate for a black tie invited wedding. Rent the Runway sized me down and not up and I should have worn a size 4 not a size 2. I'm 5'1, 115 lbs, customer service should have known better not to give me a size 0! The corset area was so tight I had a hard time taking deep breaths and sitting down. But I did like the dress and the compliments I got on it.

I loved this dress, it was very classy and simple. The fit was true to size. The only complaint I had was with how tight it was around the sleeves, despite that I would definitely rent this dress again.

I'm usually between a 2 and 4 and the 2 fit perfectly. Usually 2 is too short on me (I'm 5'7) but this one fit great! Detailing in front is also very pretty

I wore the dress to a holiday party. I got a lot of compliments and felt really great in the dress.
The dress is fitted in the waist area and doesn't have a lot of give. I would order your normal size and the next one up as a back-up if available. The size 8 wasn't available for me to get so I took a chance and it worked out well.

Guests were asked to wear black to this party and I wanted something pretty & not too revealing.
Both sizes fit me but the 10 was just a little too tight and I knew I was going to be dancing at this party. I went with the larger size and was very comfortable.

Great dress for a winter wedding…got a ton of compliments and felt great in it!
Dress fit well and was comfortable. It allowed me to wear a regular bar which I was happy about because the strapless bra's never stay up and it looked great even for small chested woman. I would definitely recommend it and even rent it again!
