very classy dress with just enough edge to it!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved this dress from the first second that I saw it on Rent the Runway. As a size 6, I felt some-what self-conscious throughout the night because I felt that the slits made me look wide. I would definitely recommend this dress for girls that are confident with their upper rib-cage area. Also, the dress was short in the back so be sure to wear some type of shorts underneath just in case!

This dress was literally perfect, it fit in all the right places, the cutouts were flattering and it flowed beautifully. I felt really great in it and didn't want to take it off! The only con if I have to find fault with it is that it shows a lot of cleavage but that's not necessarily bad!

The dress was a bit worn. The area around the bust was a little frayed, though it was only noticeable to me!I ended up wearing by back up size (4), though the 6 fit me well, too!

Perfect cocktail dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to my parent's 30th wedding anniversary party and received a ton of compliments! It was a huge hit! This dress is very classy, and just enough cute/sexy. This is quite possibly my favorite dress I've ever rented. It was comfortable and I did not need to wear a bra with it. If you have a slim waist, I would recommend ordering a size down for your "back-up" since the top can be tied quite tightly to fit your bust and really the only fitted part is the top of the skirt. I have a large bust (32DDD) and there was plenty of room for me in the size 4 which was equally great! I really wish I owned this one and am tempted to rent it again!

i wore this to a grad party, and may have been a bit over dressed, but I was really excited about this dress. it was a little but small on my boobs, so you could kind of see my bra at the bottom of the top of the dress. I was, however, able to wear a regular black bra. the length was nice, too-- it was long, but the length was classier with the cutouts and neckline. there was a lot of cleavage, especially with already big boobs, but I still felt good in this dress.

I wore this dress to a Lady Gaga concert. The dress was so fun to wear, it was a perfect length and fit. I wore a size 4 and I was comfortable the entire time. I dressed it up with aqua colored accessories to bring some extra pop to the dress. I had my friend tie the back really tight, as I did not wear a bra and wanted to make sire everything stayed put. The top is really tight so you probably wont be able to wear a bra anyway. Great dress!!

I wore this dress for my friend's 21st birthday and it was a hit! I definitely felt confident and it looked fantastic. I ordered a 6 and an 8 and ended up going with the 6 because it fit my smaller ribcage a bit better. The lace was gorgeous and the pleated skirt was so fun! I normally don't wear cutouts, but these were pretty modest in the front so I went for it. So glad I did!

Comfortable and looks great!

I wore this for my friends bachelorette party. I ended going without a bra so that I could make the back tighter. Originally, I had wrapped the ties around my black bra to cover up the straps and give my chest a little extra push up. But this made it hard to get the back as tight as I wanted. I felt very comfortable wearing the dress without a bra. Both the sizes fit well but the size 2 fit a little better in the shoulders because it was tighter. This dress was so comfortable! And the cut outs are very flattering!! I received many compliments and felt great! The length was perfect.

I waited til last minute to rent (3 days before) and needed a black dress for a bachlorette party. I was lucky to snag this one in my size and it was great! It was a vegas trip, so the dress was light and breezy and great to dance in. It hid my belly and hips well but still gave me some sexiness with the slits cut out on the size. It was also perfect because I didnt have to wear a bra, however I could have if I wanted to. This dress was great for a night out on the town!

I wore this for my bachelorette party and thought it was a perfect dress for the occasion! It was a bit racier than I'm used to, but for this occasion I felt it was warranted. With a lot of double sided tape, my 32DDD chest fit in this dress without a bra. I probably wouldn't rent it again, but it was nice for that night.

Sexy dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I love love loooooved this dress. So much so that I tried to find a place that sells it so I can buy it! (No luck.) I was nervous when I rented this for a bachelorette party. It obviously looks great on the model, but lets face it, most of us aren't models. In addition to the scary cut-outs, I couldn't wear a bra with it and I never look good without a bra. (Note: a stick-on Nu Bra might work, but I wore this dress outside in a tropical climate, so I didn't think it would stick in the humidity.) First of all, the cut-outs end up hitting your waist to your upper ribcage, so too high for muffin top! Then, the full-ish skirt gives cute shape without being too short or bouncy. The fabric is thick enough that I could tie the top and feel comfortable without a bra. The fabric was supportive enough. Finally, it was extremely comfortable all night- not too tight or chafing of rough material. Oh... And it's extremely sexy. Definitely a show-stopper! Did I mention I love this dress? I will definitely rent this again.

What an amazing first experience with Rent the Runway! I received compliments all night in this dress. It's the perfect cross between classy and sexy. I am athletic and petite with a modestly sized bust and was concerned about not being able to wear a bra. However, i did not have any issues or wardrobe malfunctions. The dress kept them perfectly secure the entire night and I was able to dance without adjusting myself. However, for girls with a natural, larger bust, please note that the slits on the side may potentially cause underboob. Be sure the back is tied tightly and you should not have any problems. I ended up wearing a 2, my back up size.

Sexy dress that can flatter many body types!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
When I first saw this dress I thought it looked super cute on the model, but didn't think it would be flattering on me. But after reading the reviews and seeing pictures of other women who were similar to my body type, I decided to try it. It was my birthday, so why not! And I'm definitely glad I did. The dress was really flattering (it cuts around the rib cage, so it hides the muffin-top area perfectly!), and the cutouts weren't as scandalous as I anticipated. The back of the dress does feel very open, but it's in a tasteful way. I received numerous compliments and felt sexy all night! I normally wear a size 6, but I decided to wear the 8 because it covered my bust area better. I would definitely recommend that busty girls order the size up for that reason. I also wore a bra with the dress, mainly because without one my chest looked rather weird and flat, and a black strap bra was almost completely hidden by the tie in the back. I enjoyed trying a dress that would normally be out of my comfort zone, and I suggest others do it too (especially with this dress!)

Wore this for my boyfriend's high school reunion party. It was perfect. Classy and sexy. Runs true to size. The open sides are in a weird spot. But unlike other reviews I was able to wear a bra and conceal it. First rental and first slate and willow dress. Great experience. I will say tho the dress is very light and thin.

I rented this dress for my birthday and it was amazing! I'm not usually one to wear cutouts but I fell in love with this dress when I saw it on the model. This is possibly my favorite dress that I've rented so far and didn't want to return it. When I first pulled the dress out, I was shocked at how little material was hanging there. Once I put the dress on though, it showed just the right amount of skin. It hits high enough that there isn't any muffin top. Once I was adjusted and tied into the dress, there was zero underboob from these 34D babies! I've been looking for this dress to buy because it's such a keeper!

This dress was perfect for a night out for a friend's birthday. The zero fit perfectly - I didn't even try on the size 2. As other reviewers said, the cutouts are high enough up on the rib cage that there was no worry about bulges. It is a little on the short side, but not so short that I felt uncomfortable. I felt amazing in this dress and got tons of compliments throughout the night!

I wore this for my sororities probate. I normally wear an eight, but the six fit me pretty well. I'm not extremely blessed in the chest but I like to think that I have one, and the dress definitely held up well in that area. The back didn't slide down like I thought it would, which was definitely a plus. I loved the "flowyness" of the skirt portion, and the floral designs, which are hard to see in the picture. But it's great in real life. I only gave it a four because I just wish you could see the detail in the bottom portion of the skirt more, but that's what you get for wearing all black; Everything tends to blend together. Other than that, great for a little black dress party.

The fit was perfect. I have a small cheat and waist but a bigger butt so I was able to wear the four. The six fit similar but I couldn't tie it tight enough for the top.

Love love love this dress, wish I could've kept it! The cutouts were in the perfect spot, to be sexy but not show off any problem areas. The top is pretty low cut, so watch out if you have a bigger bust, but it wasn't a problem for this occasion. Definitely a great fit for those hourglass body shapes, shows off your curves and hides any flaws. I might have to rent this again!

I wore this dress for my boyfriends last fraternity date party and this dress was beyond perfect! I usually wear a 6 but that's mostly shift dresses. Size 6 fit me but didn't support my boobs the way I would have liked. The 4 which was my backup was perfect and was just as long as the 6! I wore a black bra and you couldn't see it at all! This dress didn't ride up at all and there was no readjusting all night... So comfortable and functional! This was my first rental and I have no complaints. They event sent me a little free Aveno lotion!
