Classy

It runs a little big in the torso area so I found I had extra material there. Because of this, it wasn't the most flattering in some of the pics. Having said that - husband thought the slit up the leg was very sexy.

Not Flattering

This dress was not flattering on my body. It was too high on my neck, squished my chest and was very short, despite the fact that i am only 5 3

Great little black dress! Felt super confident and sexy!

The 10 fit great on my curves, but as a tall woman I felt more comfortable in the 12 because of the added length. Overall, great little black dress to wear to my boyfriend's birthday party! Felt super sexy and confident.

Beautiful!

I rented this dress for my work's holiday party and it was a major hit. The lace is beautiful and that slit gives it that extra edge and shock factor. I'm 5'6" and if I raised my arms the dress went up, so make sure to keep your arms down. Heading to Vegas this weekend and a coworker told me to wear this dress again. It would work for Vegas, but I rented another dress for that ;) Thanks RTR!

Great dress! Got a lot of compliments

I'm normally a 6 but had read that this dress was a little roomy in the middle, which I too found to be true, so I ended up wearing a 4. The slit is a LITTLE high, but it wasn't my work party so it was ok if I looked a tad slutty. I'm 5'9" with long legs so short things look extra short on me, but the actual hemline on this dress was fine. Just don't bend over. At all. Very comfortable - I think it's made of scuba diving suit material which seems to be chic these days. The lace is gorgeous. Overall a great dress, would rent it again and recommend to others. Would also recommend wearing hair up so the lace on the shoulders & back is fully visible. Thanks RTR!

Too much extra fabric in the torso

This dress was very pretty, and the lace arms and the lower part fit well. However, there was so much extra fabric in the torso that the front and back bunched up and were loose. Very unflattering. Had to return for another style.

I didn't end up wearing the dress because I was lucky enough to rent 2 dresses that looked fabulous. I loved the neckline and the little slit.

Great NYE dress!

Rented this for New Years Eve. Very classy and the slit makes it a little more fun. The dress ran true to size and the fabric was thick and semi-forgiving. Pretty comfortable also. Would rent again!

Wore this dress for NYE and it was fabulous. The lace was beautiful and the slit made it flirty.

The dress was a little less fitted in the tummy area but it was fine by me because I dont like feeling so restricted especially when I am drinking and eating all night. The dress was classy but flirty. Perfect for a girls night out or even something more upscale. It felt a little short and I'm only 5'1 but it was fine as long as you didnt bend over and touch your toes :)

Great party dress!

I got this dress as my RTR Pro FREE Birthday dress. My bday is in early January so I ended up wearing this for New Years Eve. I loved it!!! It fit great, was comfortable, and looked awesome. I received many compliments. Perfect for the occasion and even better that is was FREE!

I loved the laces sleeves on this dress. I was a little worried about the sheath cut because I am petite an thought it might not be flattering, I was wrong - it fit great and was very flattering!! I would definitely rent this dress again.

Awesome dress, very sexy but with class. Wore the dress out in Vegas and it was perfect!

Typically a 4 in JCrew or Banana Republic dresses and fit the same! Even with a big chest, the dress still gave me shape and was very forgiving in the mis-section. Overall loved the fit and would definitely rent Again.

A comfortable, easy LBD

Got the size 4 as a back up, but ended up wearing the 2. The dress is true to size, but the slit on the side runs a bit higher than expected. Overall, the material clung in the right places and was comfortable to move in. The only reason I gave it four stars would be because of how short it was. Other than that, this dress was perfect for the occasion.

Comfortable and classy!

This was my first RTR order, and I am so thrilled with my experience. I looked through lots of dresses and read tons of reviews before settling on this dress for a friend's company party. I ordered a 4 and 6, and ended up wearing the 6. The 4 actually fit pretty well, but the sleeves were tight on me near the shoulder/armpit area. It wasn't too uncomfortable; however the 6 fit just right. My only complaint with the dress is that it had a tendency to rise up a bit when I walked. I had to readjust it throughout the night, but this didn't bother me. Again, the dress was super comfortable and I felt really good in it. I also rented Kate Spade earring to go with the dress. I received several compliments throughout the night, and I will definitely be using RTR in the future!

Wore this in Las Vegas for a bachelorette party.

This dress fit well for the most part, but I found the arms to be fairly tight. Other than that, I enjoyed it.

Wholly Slit

I was unable to wear this because it was way too sexy for an event I was attending with my grandparents... I didn't expect the slit to be as high as it was.

having the comfortable in knowing I had two sizes to try on.

Had a little wiggle room but was comfortable with that because I'm very heavy chested so it helped to have a little room.

I received so many compliments! Very comfortable and flattering!

I ended up wearing the bigger size because the dress is pretty form fitting. It's a stretchy material so It fit me great in the bust which can be a real struggle when it comes to finding a dress. I really liked the dress, it was comfortable and I felt great in it. The only thing is that it is pretty short. I wore it to a bachelorette party so it was ok, but I probably wouldn't have been able to wear it to any family/work event. I'm only 5'4 and my legs are short so I was a little self conscious, so I threw on some black tights and felt better. Will definitely be renting this again!

Short, lacy and sexy!

Loved this dress! Super comfy and stretchy. Even shorter than I expected, so sitting was a bit of a challenge. :-) My husband loved it, and I felt like one hot mama all night long. I rented this dress for my birthday date with my husband. Perfect for a night out on the town, including Latin dancing!

Just ok

I rented this at the Vegas showroom and only had the option of a 6. I'm typically an 8 and it was a little too snug, but worked well. My only issue was that the dress is SUPER short and the slit makes it even shorter. Def only appropriate for a party or night out on the town.

Nice, but not one of RTR's best

Just a fine dress, nothing terrible, but probably not worth renting, IMHO. Fabric is shiny in person, as well.

Short but gorgeous

I ended up wearing the other dress I rented but it was a difficult decision to make. This dress highlighted my legs but was an odd fit across the bust. Each time I moved my arms, it was a definite pantie shot.

doesn't work if you have big hips/bottom area

Would have been super cute if it fit better. It is not the fault of the dress but does not work well with super curvy woman. The size 14 fit around the bottom area but there was too much fabric up top so it looked baggy around the back

The dress was perfect made the event great and I will never forget it.

It a very stretchy material I would advise to use a smaller size than you usually would chose. Other than it's a very pretty dress , the slit is a bit far up. The shipping was very fast. I order my dress the day before the event. It came in that very morning of the event. Just order a couple days before your event because the dress may not be available in that size you want. I would definitely use rent the run way again.

The dress was pretty and sophisticated.

This was my first RTR experience. The dress arrived a day late, but it still worked out for two events. The sleeves were kind of tight and the waist was loose. It was pretty but didn't feel like a designer dress to me.

Loved the lace but didn't like the material! Looked nice though, got plenty of compliments.

Go up in size because the arms are pretty tight! I normally wear a 6 but the arms were way too tight so I had to wear the 8. Also, I suggest wearing Spanx with it because it shows all the bumps.

Classic LBD

I got the 6 and 8. The 6 fit perfect but this dress is short! So since this was my husbands work event I went with the 8 for length. I would rather it fit big and not be overly revealing. The dress looked exactly like the picture. I wish I would have gotten picture because he looked really cute. I wore it with red shoes (holiday party) and got tons of compliments.

Pretty Dress

The dress is really pretty. I found that it ran a bit large around the stomach area, but it was quite tight in the arms (and I have very thin arms). I was worried that it would be large in the chest since most of the other reviewers were much larger than me in that area, but it wasn't a problem at all. It is very short - I wore this to my husband's office party. I just had to be careful when sitting down, but I didn't feel uncomfortable at all when standing up. The dress was very comfortable (maybe because it was a little big!)

Great quality

Wore this dress to my husbands work party. It was probably my 5th choice since the others were unavailable. It worked out great. I got lots of compliments and it was very nice quality. I was not worried about the lace ripping or anything. My only complaint is that it was a little short on the sleeves but otherwise fit well.

This dress was beautiful and I received many compliments throughout the night! The only thing was it is extremely short and you have to be careful when sitting/dancing. All in all, it's a great dress and I would probably rent it again.

I rented this for NYE and it was perfect!

This was my first time using RTR and I was so happy with my experience. Like other reviewers said, it runs a little big in the body area, but it wasn't unflattering because of it. I also didn't find it to be too short like other reviewers- just might want to be careful because of the slit. I danced all night and didn't have a problem at all. I rented both a 8 and a 10, (I am usually an 8 but you know holidays...) and the 8 worked out fine. I would definitely recommend this dress.

Very comfortable, beautiful dress!

This dress was gorgeous! It fit really well for a size 2 and even ran a little large since I'm usually a 2 or a 4. The sleeves were a little snug and my elbows got a little irritated from the lace but it wasn't anything too bad and was worth it since it looked amazing!

A lovely dress, nice quality of lace

This was very nice for New Year's Eve out with friends. I knew it was short from the reviews, so this was a perfectly fine occasion for a mini. My only caution would be to be careful of the waist band of any nylons you plan to wear. I liked the dress at home, but when I tried it on at the hotel with nylons, the line that crossed my stomach was pretty noticeable through the fabric that doesn't hide much. I didn't love it because I had a couple of extra holiday pounds! That would make me give it 4 stars instead of 5, but it's not really that fault of the dress. (It was the fault of the Christmas cookies!) Good experience!

Pretty but short...pretty short

Got this dress as a backup after not being able to get the dress I originally rented. The neckline was beautiful and the sleeves fit well but it was way too short for me. If I was 25 and single I would have been all about this dress and its slit.
