Cute LBD with some flaws
This dress was a good LBD for going out in Vegas but it had a few flaws. The lace was pulling a bit from a lot of wear and I felt like I needed to pull down the top a lot to prevent underboob. The cutouts and back of the dress are cute but the zipper kept bunching up depending on how high the skirt was sitting on my waste so the dress would stick out in the back a bit. Overall I liked this dress - it was comfortable and different.

Loved, loved LOVED this dress
This was my first time with Rent the Runway and I can't say how happy I was with the service! The dress came in perfect time, and I was able to try both on and see which was best--I was able to go with the 2 and pin a bra inside (since I am sadly not very ample on top). I got tons of looks and compliments for this big girls night out, and I have to say the dress fit like a glove. No issues with pulling, riding up or anything. It has a great balance of showing off enough skin without looking cheap. Skirt is short, but I loved it! Looking forward to another event so I can rent again!

Great for a new mommy's night out! - Did not wear. My friend wore it instead.
I rented this for myself but my friend ended up wearing it and I wore my backup dress (https://www.renttherunway.com/shop/designers/slate__willow/red_sequin_shimmy_dress). The cut on me just didn't work - I couldn't keep the straps where they were supposed to be, the torso hit me in a strange spot, and overall, I just looked frumpy. Now, my friend on the other hand, looked awesome! She's a new mom and wanted something to cover her post-baby tummy. She's 5'0, 34C, and it fit her like a dream!

Never thought I could wear a dress with cutouts!
Fit great! Can't wear bra with this dress so I bought the stick on cups and it worked great. I never thought I could wear a dress like that but i felt so hot!

The bow in the back is adorable!
It fit perfectly! I was able to pin my bra to the bow in the back so you couldn't see it. Thai was a home run for me since I am uncomfortable not wearing one. When it first arrived it looks really promiscuous but it really isn't when you wear it. It looked great on and I got a ton of compliments. I wouldn't rent it again but that's only because there are so many other dresses I want to try!

Sexy and comfortable, tons of compliments!
I rented this dress for my wedding anniversary- we went to a nice dinner in the city followed by a comedy show. This dress was perfect for the evening! I was super comfortable but got TONS of compliments, even just walking down the city streets! The 6 fit perfectly but I was feeling a bit bloated so ended up wearing the 8. We had an amazing night, and the dress definitely added to it!! We had so much fun I forgot to take a full-length picture of me in the dress! I would totally rent this dress again!

Risque!!!!!
This dress is pretty provocative! I didn't feel comfortable wearing it outside my hotel room without a cover-up. If I were going to a hot club in Las Vegas or Miami, maybe it would be a different story. But I really can't imagine being comfortable in this in any other setting. It was super short and the cut-outs are large. Maybe if I were 10 years younger and not a mom ... lol.

It's a fun dress for going out!
I wore this dress for a night out in Ft. Lauderdale. It's super comfortable. I really liked the cutouts. I'm 5/7 & it wasn't too short. Danced a lot in it!

Surprised it could be worn without a bra!
Usually backless dresses are a no-no with my chest size, but this dress did the job. Lots of people told me it looked unique. Lots of skin showing from the waist up so definitely not for a casual or conservative event. I liked it a lot but was just a tad self conscious about my boobs popping out. They didn't, but it made me a little nervous. Otherwise a beautiful dress!

Adorable, Flirty Dress
This dress fit to a tee. I was able to tie the back tight enough so that my assets were supported without needing a bra (definitely wouldn't have been able to wear one even if I wanted to, the ribbon is just too thin). The cutouts were super flattering - I was a little worried they might be too tight but they were just right. The lining under the skirt is a pretty short so be careful when entering and exiting a car! My only complaint would be that the fabric seemed a little worn - up close I could see some pilling from it being washed so many times. Overall though, super adorable little dress and it would look great on anyone!

This dress was amazing! Superb material, well-made, stayed in place, super comfortable, super cute!
First, thank you Rent the Runway! I had such a phenomenal experience- the dress arrived in the morning that it was supposed to be delivered, and the hotel said they didn't have it. I got on the phone with a RtR representative, who reached out to FedEx, called me back with the exact delivery information, AND had FedEx email me the digital delivery receipt. Amazing. And the hotel did indeed have my dress. As for the dress itself, it was everything I was looking for. Super fun and flirty, but not overly revealing. I'm 5'4", around 120lb, 34B, and I usually wear a size 2: the 2 was perfect on me. I didn't even try on the size 4. It doesn't need a bra, but I wore a sticky bra to give the girls a little lift- worked perfectly. The top of the dress is nicely fitted and didn't cut into me (but was definitely a little tighter after a big dinner!). The skirt of the dress was flowy but stayed in place. I was comfortable all night and felt like a star :)

Wore this dress to the MGM for a friends birthday and got compliments all night! It was perfect!
Fit - Nice and loose in the hips. Perfect for dancing! I'm a curvy girl and it hid the tummy, accented my curves, and was super flattering. The only thing I had a problem with was it was a bit long in the shoulders so it came down lower on me than other people (but I'm short). Pros - If you have the confidence to rock this dress than do it - it is a true head turner. It is fun and flirty but the lace classes it up. Pair it with pretty much any color heels, accessories, or make up. Cons - You can't wear a bra with it because of the back. I had to retie the back a few times throughout the night, I should have tied a knot in it first. Tip - I did not use one but I do recommend an adhesive bra.

I loved the dress! It fit really well and it was very flattering. I spent a while worried the tie in the back would come loose, but it never did!

LBD with a twist!
I loved the fit of the dress. It was small through the chest and I was slightly concerned with my chest slipping out at bottom, a sticky bra helped. I would not rent if you are large chested; however, overall a cute dress. The lace and cut outs gave a basic LBD a unique twist.

I rented this dress for my birthday and it was perfect! The cutouts are sexy, but the dress is super comfortable to wear and you never feel like any part of you is hanging out. The shape is incredibly flattering and I received a ton of compliments. Would love to own this dress and wear it again.

A great dress for a clubbing birthday celebration!
Fits true to size. Loved that it's sexy, but not overly revealing. Did not wear a bra with it, and it provided plenty of support. Be sure you have someone with you to tie the dress on tight. Would definitely rent again!

I loved the open back! It was perfect for a New Year's Eve party in NOLA. I didn't have to wear a bra with this (though I am smaller chested). A great rental!

Great dress to dance in!
I wore this for a friend's bachelorette party and it was a great choice. Because it is open on the side and most of the back is open as well it kept me cool while we were dancing. I also liked having the thick straps and thicker ribbon for tying the back closed; it's nice to be able to adjust it to your size a little bit more. I wore stick-on cups, but probably could have just gone without. Definitely a cute, fun dress.

It was a great fit! I am smaller on the top, so it was a bit loose on the top, but tightening the ties on the back help it fit better.

Great dress for a fun birthday dinner with friends!
Wore this for my birthday dinner night out. It's very flattering and fun. The cutouts and the bow in the back are special. It was comfortable, not too short on me (I'm 5"9) and the top part fit well and offered enough support that I didn't have to wear a bra (saying a lot since I'm a 36DD).

This dress was perfect for a night out in Vegas!
I'm petite, so I was worried this wouldn't fit - but it was perfect! Didn't need a bra, felt comfortable all night! It runs true to size - I chose a zero and it fit perfectly. Super easy and fun!

Everything I wanted and more!
The dress fit like a charm and was perfect for dancing at homecoming. The fabric does catch very easily and is extremely light so this dress wouldn't be ideal for a windy day. The top was a bit loose on me but I was still able to wear it without a bra. Such a fun and flirty dress, I got tons of compliments!

Was really excited for this, but couldn't make it work
I was really excited for this rental for a girls trip to Vegas, but I just couldn't make it work to feel comfortable in it. Depending on how the straps laid, even though I tied the back the tightest it could be, I just didn't feel like my chest was secure. Fun idea though and probably best for larger chest!

I loved this dress. It was definitely more lacy that I realized from the photos, but is was beautiful. It fit perfectly and was extremely flattering. The cutouts made it a little fun, flirty and sexy without being too much. I got a lot of compliments and would rent again.

Really awesome dress!
My normal size (10) was unavailable so I went a size up. This dress is really forgiving because even though the waist was a bit large (I wear a 6 for bottoms), it just sat on my hips. Very comfortable. Not as sexy as I would have liked for a night out in Miami, but would work great at a party. My bra is a 36C and I had to tie the top as tight as it would go. I wore with a couple of the Braza Reveal Bra stickies which worked well. I am 5'6 and it was a great "little black dress" length!

Playful, Sexy and Stylish
This dress is fantastic. I am all about a dress where you can have a giant meal and still feel sexy in a dress. On a serious note, the dresses fit is spot on. The lace is great, but I will say the 8's lace was a little funky. If you love your back, this is a great dress to show it off. It is also nice and short, so it looks wonderful on those of us with long legs! Definitely a re-rent!
