Beautiful but Runs SMALL in the Chest
This dress is very high quality. Its hard to tell from the pictures but teh skirt is full with lots of layers and the entire dress is lacey. The problem is that while it fit in the body it didn't come anywhere near fitting my chest. I am currently nursing so have size 32DD boobs and the top did not even come close to covering them. I am 5'7 and 130 and usually wear a size 4, it did not fit.

Great Dress!!
The dress was great! I was a little worried about how big the cutouts looked, but they were the perfect size; not too much. I ordered a size 2 and 4, but because the dress ties in the back you can make the top as tight or loose as you need it to be. I couldn't really tell the difference between the 2 and 4 on the bottom. Definitely need to wear a backless bra. The dress is comfortable and easy to wear. I put it on and didn't have to keep fixing or adjusting it like you do with other dresses. I got a lot of compliments about this dress, it's different and fun!

Photographs well
I rented this for my sorority's semi-formal and this is such a sassy dress! I loved the cut-outs on the side and the bow in the back, it felt classy with a twist. Overall a very pretty dress, fit well, the back stayed tied, I didn't need fashion tape or any kind of extra support. I could not wear a bra with it so I recommend getting an adhesive bra if you need to wear one.
MarellaFebruary 5, 2014
You looked beautiful in this! I might want to rent this for my school's semiformal. How did you find the length of the dress?

I wore this dress for a sorority semi-formal dance. Everyone, including myself loved it!
I was a little afraid of the cut-out back and not wearing a bra- but it worked perfectly for me. I did not need to wear a bra at all. This dress is totally cute, and I would def rent it again !

Flattering!
This was my backup dress so I didn't end up wearing it because it didn't quite fit the party. Very figure flattering, I love that you can tie the back as tight or loose as you want. Definitely cannot wear a bra unless its a stick on which is fine. The cutouts were cute, but I have a tattoo on my side and didn't think it looked appropriate at this party to have that peeping through, so I decided not to go with this one. cute dress though!
MarellaFebruary 5, 2014
How long did you find this dress? I'm 5'0 and might want to rent a 0, not sure about length though!
EricaFebruary 6, 2014
it came up to maybe about 3 or 4 inches above my knee... it was PERFECT!!!

Cut outs unflattering on my hourglass shape
I really, really wanted to like this dress. I rented it for a more casual NYE house party that I was planning on dancing at, so the flare of the skirt and the open back were really appealing. However, upon trying it on, it just did not flatter. I adjusted, retied, tried the backup size, no go. It somehow made me look blocky, and the skirt stuck out weirdly on me. The neckline was higher than I thought it was going to be, and just smooshed my girls pretty flat. It wasn't that it didn't fit, both sizes I rented did, I just didn't want to be seen in either! I personally feel this dress is best suited for the more athletic, straight up and down, or petite frames. Thankfully RTR happily sent me a replacement dress that I loved.

I'm a D as well, and I just ordered a dress. I have a semi-hourglass shape. i really hope it fits. Im not planning on wearing a bra with it either, we'll see...however, I'm also shorter than you, so I hope that makes a difference!

Very cute, but too long for 5'2''!
This dress is cute. The size zero fit perfectly and I was able to wear a black bra with no problem. The dress came down to my knees and I wasn't really going for a conservative look. I wanted a sexy dress and this was more sweet than sexy. I would not get this dress again because of the length.

I LOVE this dress! I wish I owned it and will likely rent this again! I am smaller up top and have hips and this dress fit PERFECT. I felt beautiful, sexy and skinny all night! The lacy really added to this dress and I will rent this again. The back is beautiful as well (wish I got a picture of it)! Thank you!

Felt so hot!
I loved this dress! If I could've kept it I would :-) First off, I have to thank the EXTRAORDINARY Go-To Girl who helped me (Jessica if I'm remembering correctly). My first choice dress didn't work thanks to my short torso but she helped me pick this out and it was on my doorstep 12 hours later! The dress was short, but not scandalous. The cut outs and open back gave the dress just enough umph to turn some heads and the skirt was super fun for dancing. I dressed it up with some big gold jewelry and hot pink pumps and felt great all night long! Definitely would consider renting this one again!.

I Wanted To Like This Dress...
I didn't end up wearing it because the wide straps and cut-out did not end up being as flattering for my body type as I anticipated. It fit perfectly and the dress is gorgeous and of good quality, but in the end I went with another outfit already in my closet because I liked the idea of this dress more than I liked it in reality. I think this was a case of me being a little finicky, and I do wish it had been shorter on me, but I always have that challenge at my height (5'2"). I suspected that might be the case as most of the photos accompanying existing reviews are from ladies who are 5'7" or taller.

Lovely dress and great experience with RTR!
It was a little big on me but I was expecting that. I never even tried on the size two. Really easy to move in and the loose skirt makes the cut outs not too much. So many compliments and my date loved it. RTR process was easy and I'm so happy with the entire experience

Perfect for a night out!
Amazing dress! I wore this for my best friend's bachelorette party and got compliments all night. The cut outs made my waist look tiny while the lacy skirt was sweet and forgiving :) I highly recommend you get a NuBra to wear with this one though - the backless look was awesome but definitely requires some good support!

So easy to wear and comfy! Paired with red accessories but so many options. Tons of compliments!
This dress is very flattering, and the cutouts are less risqué than they look. I went braless because my bra showed. I'm between a 6 and 8 and wore the 8, I'd recommend sizing up rather than down if you're unsure.

Classy and fun for last medical school formal
This dress was not my first choice. Despite reserving a dress two months in advance the arrival date was changed and the original dress I reserved was unavailable. RTR staff let me pick a new dress only a few days before my event and even forgave the price discrepancy. This Slate and Willow was fun and flowy and just the right amount of revealing for my occassion. The lace was a little pilled from being worn but was not noticeable to anyone else. I would definitely rent this dress again if I didn't want to try them all.

very classy dress with just enough edge to it!
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!

sexy and classy
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.

Great dress, got a lot of compliments!
I wore this to a bachelorette party and it was a total hit. Everyone thought it was a great dress! On a fit note, I'm a bit busty so I wore a bra with it and wrapped the back tie around the band. You couldn't really see my bra so that worked perfectly. Be aware that if you're on the bustier side it works but might be a bit tight.

Super fun party 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!!

Bday dress
I rented this dress for my birthday after the first one I ordered didn't fit. The dress itself is beautiful and it looks great on all of the girls in the other pics. It just didn't quite work for me. The top portion fit fine but I have a big booty so it came up super short in the back. It looks great on tall, thin girls, but didn't work for my body.

Perfect for a girls' night out!
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!

I didn't wear this dress.
I ended up not wearing this dress. It pooled out a lot more than I had originally anticipated and felt more funereal than in pictures. The lace is much more noticeable in real life, and was a little long on my 5'2" frame.

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.

Fun and flirty
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!

Fun bachelorette party dress!
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!
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.

Loved it so much I didn't want to return it!
Rented this dress while out in Vegas for a dinner and a party. It fit perfectly and was so comfortable to wear. I only had to use a little bit of fashion tape to keep my bra in place in the back. I gotta find an excuse to wear this again!

Gorgeous material, very dressy and classic
I wish the dress was shorter. It was very long for my heigh 5'2" and the top part was a little bit of an awkward fit. It looks a lot more formal in person than in the photos as well.
