Overall fit: True to Size

One of my favorite dresses I've rent so far! Everyone needs a LBD, but this one is so sophisticated. I received compliments all night. It was fun to accent it with a bright shoe. I ordered a 4 and a 6, but went with the 6. I typical wear a size 4, and I could have gotten away with it, but it was a bit snug in my armpits. Sized up for a little more comfort. Loved the pockets! Will definitely rent this dress again.

It fit really well, the 4 fit good too, but was just a tad snug so I went with the 6 and there was more room in it, it was a little too big in the bust for me though. Also, it was a little longer than it is on the model, but I'm also short ;)

Flirty, chic and sexy…the perfect dress for a Hollywood formal affair.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

This was my second time renting from RTR and I was again, totally satisfied. I wore this to the Director's Guild of American Awards and felt amazing. The dress was really comfortable and the fabric was a nice weight. From the pictures I thought it might feel inexpensive, but it was rich and laid nicely. I didn't need to wear a bra with the dress since the bodice was supportive enough, but you could wear a strapless bra if needed, just might need to pin it on the off-shoulder side so bra doesn't show under your arm.

Perfection!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
My mom and I both rented dresses for the first time and loved them! Our experience was great! My dress fit great. I ordered a 10 and a 12 and ended up wearing the 12. I tend to fluctuate so I never know which size will be better for me. The tie around the neck actually has two buttons in the back and was a tad loose but nothing that would have prevented me from wearing the dress. I loved the way I felt in this dress and got SO many compliments. I cant wait for my next RTR experience.

Great simple dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Rented this dress because I knew it would definitely fit, given this is a shape I typically find flattering. I usually wear a 6 but have a very small upper body/waist so wound up wearing the 4, which even had a bit of extra room in the waist and chest. Wore my hair up in a low bun with big statement earrings. Definitely got a lot of compliments on the dress, but I didn't give it five stars because the dress is pretty simple--it's not an amazing piece of clothing you're going to remember forever but certainly got the job done.

Overall fit: True to Size

The fit was very true to size, as I'm typically a 4-6 and wore a 6. It was incredibly comfortable, without any issues of it riding up or needing adjusting. The skirt is just long enough you won't worry about length, but short enough to feel sexy!

Adorable LBD

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This is an adorable LBD. It is very flattering to a curvy shape- full in the skirt yet fitted at the waist - also gorgeous shape at the bust. I wore it with a strapless bra. I found the bow a bit uncomfortable- it buttons in the back and was a bit tight around the neck. Loved that the dress has pockets- kept my lipstick with me all night! Wore with studded black pumps and nude stockings.

This dress was extremely comfortable and it fit great! I ordered a 4 and got a 6 as a backup size. The 4 was perfect. The material is light and flowy - which was great for an event in Arizona. It's a very sophisticated and fun dress. It also has pockets! I fell in love with the dress so much that I think I'm going to see if I can buy it somewhere - it's the perfect LBD for any occasion!

I rented this dress for a wedding, I was a bridesmaid and we had to all wear black dresses. This dress has POCKETS! Which was amazing to be able to keep my phone and lipgloss with me at all time. Extremely comfortable and elegant, fits true to size. Would absolutely recommend this dress to anyone looking for the perfect LBD.

Black tie wedding in the city and I fell in love with this dress. Didn't want to wear a long dress (recommended) but this dress was equally as fancy. LOVED THE POCKETS! Made of thicker material. Hits right about the knee. Loved the neck tie part that simply buttons. BIG CON: There are wires that run up and down from bust to end of fitted part. When sitting down, they dig into your ribs. No problem standing though. Wish I could buy this.

No bra needed for this dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for a wedding that was black tie suggested. I wear a 4 and the 4 that I rented was true to size but I went with the 6 because I wanted a little wiggle room for eating purposes. One reviewer had wrote that she didn't have to wear a bra because of the lining. I didn't believe it, but -- yep -- no need for a bra! I was so happy I didn't run out and buy a new strapless black bra for this! It was super comfortable, I received many compliments, and I felt great in the dress. The fabric is nice and heavy.

Beautiful dress, but top runs a little big

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was perfect for the wedding I went to. It was very comfortable and, surprisingly, the neck didn't bother me at all. Overall, I was really happy with the dress but the top was a little big. I normally wear a size 2, but I wish I had gotten a size 0 as my backup. Also, I am 5'1" and I think the dress was a little bit too long for my height. It hit right at my knees, I would have preferred at least an inch above my knees.

loved this dress. It was veryy snug on the top so I could not wear a bra (putting partial blame on my boobs since they were twice the size due to the time of month..) I thought it would be shorter than it was, it hit about to my knees but again I blame my height being 5'2. But overall I received tons of compliments all night so it was totally worth it!

Unforgettable Unique LBD

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
There is simply nothing bad to say about this dress. The neck is beautiful and unique and comes with an easy button close fastener (no tying). The fabric is thick and practically un-wrinkle-able! Some other users said they were able to wear this without a bra and despite my hesitations that was true for me. There is also boning in the chest to prevent sagging on the sides. I rented the 4 and 6 and ended up wearing the 6 because it was more comfortable in my ribcage. You will not regret this rental!

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress does fit true to size, I got a size 4 and it fit great. The pockets were really convenient as well. I got compliments all night, the dress looked amazing. At first I wasn't sold on the dress because i thought the bow would be too big sitting on top of my shoulder, but when I wore it, it was barely there.

While I usually wear a size 2 in dresses, there are times I can get away with a 0. With this dress I had to go with the 2. So if you are debating between sizes I would go up one. Super comfortable though! And the length was still great on me despite being 5' 2''.

I love this designer and I've rented other dresses by this designer before. They always fit so great and are very flattering. The bow detail at the neck was perfect. I'm 5'8" and the length was just right. I had to give 4 stars instead of 5 because both sizes I ordered had small tears. I wore the 4 instead of the 6 only because that tear was less noticeable near the pocket seam. Another great rental and I'll probably stick with this designer again.

The material for this dress is thick which was good because I didn't have to wear a bra with it. The 10 fit, which is my normal dress size, except it wouldn't zip past my bust. I wouldn't recommend this dress for girls with a large C chest or larger. All in all it was super comfortable and I felt good in it.

A chic and unique version of an LBD

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to a company holiday party, and it was definitely a big hit. As almost all reviewers have mentioned, the bow and collar really make the dress pop among all other black dresses. The material is thicker than I was expecting (though I think other reviewers may have mentioned this), which made the dress nice for a winter event. I was a little worried it might even be too formal with the material, but a fun pair of shoes made it a great choice for the event. Because it is such a wonderful dress, I do think the one I received may have been a little too worn. Many users mentioned there was no need to wear a strapless bra, which I was quite excited about. The chest area is usually where dresses fall too tight on me, so I expected the same thing with this dress. I actually found the bodice to be a little baggy and a bit stretched out. I had to end up wearing a bra to fill out the chest area. The waist and length were perfect, but there was something just a little off about the top that prevented me from giving more stars.

Gorgeous twist on the classic LBD

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
OVERALL: One of my favorite dresses I've ever rented (which is saying something since I've been renting since 2011). Such a great twist on the LBD. Honestly a 5-star dress because there was nothing I would change about it. I even scoured the internet to try to BUY it because I loved it so much, but unfortunately it's sold out everywhere! FIT: I think this runs large because I'm usually a 4 but the 2 fit perfectly. Also great news - no bra needed because of the boning in the bodice (and I'm a 32DD so if I can pull it off sans bra, anyone can). The length was perhaps a little long for me but I'm short (5'2) and with heels I think it looked fine. Some people have mentioned the neck piece being tight, but I didn't notice anything. Very comfortable dress and the skirt is forgiving if you are drinking and eating a lot (which I was). STYLING: I wore gold Kate Spade chandelier earrings and red Jessica Simpson pumps with a red lip. Thought the colors were very holiday appropriate, but the great thing is that black goes with everything.

I typically wear between a size 8 and 10. They were out of size 8 so I ordered a 10 and it was pretty big on me. Luckily, with the help of some double sided tape, I made it work. I loved that it isn't a tight dress and I felt comfortable not worrying about sucking in my tummy all night. Also, being 5'11", I loved that it wasn't super short! I would have given this 5 stars except that the boning is coming apart on the inside and they were out of my preferred size.

I couldn't zip the dress :( so could not wear it

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I need to not rent a dress with a zipper. I rented two dresses for two different events and neither one fit. Unfortunately I got them Saturday and the event was Saturday and Sunday so I had to dig in my closet for old dresses which was a bummer! I'm new to Rent the Runway so wasn't sure how it all worked. I guess I should have ordered sizes up...not down.

I think this dress has a very unique design, it matched perfectly with the earrings that I rented together. The material was a little bit heavy though, that might just be a personal opinion.
