Loved this dress!
I rented this dress for my friend's black tie wedding. This was my first experience using Rent the Runway and I can't say better things about the experience. This was actually a back up dress that I didn't choose. Two days before the wedding I was contacted that my alternate size wasn't returned to them on time so they were sending this dress in its place (in my normal size). I was a little nervous but I was so happy with how they handled everything. I ended up liking this dress even better than the one I picked out and wore this instead!! I received so many compliments all night and from my pictures. I definitely recommend this dress!! Fit and length: I am a size 4 and this dress is true to size. I wore the 8L (UK 8/ US 4). I am 5'7" and wore 2 1/2 in. heels and the long was great for me. I didn't need to wear a bra with this dress because of the thick, stretchy material. I was nervous about the plunging neckline (and not wearing a bra) but I used a little bit of fashion tape to make sure I didn't have any wardrobe malfunctions.I felt comfortable the entire night!

Loved this! Be bold!
I'm not one to wear things low cut since I don't have much of a chest, but I took a chance and tried this dress. I don't regret it at all!!! It is gorgeous! The blue bottom half is brighter in person. I wore black strapped 3.5 inch heels and it was too long. I'm 5'2. I was able to easily tape it up using duct tape and it stayed fine all night. I wasn't sure if it would work since the fabric has stretch. I used two pieces of double sided tape. You must have good posture. If I leaned forward you could see in the dress. I was able to dance comfortably all night and I think I avoided any wardrobe malfunctions. It would probably be less of a problem if you have broad shoulders. My torso and shoulders are narrow. The back is amazing!!! Wear your hair up!

Need tiny waist and huge boobs?
The fabric was very nice, dress is clearly well made. The chest is made for some one with Ds or larger I think and would require fashion tape definitely! I received this as a back up and did not wear. Remember it's European sizes so size accordingly. I recommend that RTR changes the sizing to reflect US size only to avoid mix-ups. My friend also tried it on and was correct size but the chest is huge! Could be great for a particular body type.

Beautiful fit and beautiful dress
If I could wear this dress every day I would. The fabric is very thick, which is great because wearing a bra would be impossible. I used tape to keep the dress down around the chest, but it was not necessary. I am 5'7.5" and the dress ran a tiny bit short, so I wore 3" heels instead of 4". If I were to do it again I'd get the longer hemline (does that exist?)

Great dress for hourglass shape!
Overall I loved the dress; cut is classic, flattering, and the neckline perfect. Felt like a starlet all night. I'm normally a 6, and the conversion to European sizing ran large. I'd order a back up dress one size down from your regular size. Mine was a little baggy in the back but not noticeable. At 5'7" the L size was perfect with 3.5" heels. Definitely recommend.

Tight but not too tight--felt great!
This dress looks NOTHING like it does on the model in the picture as it does on. The material is very thick and stretchy. I'm usually a size 4US and was a size 2US for this. The front part had to be pinned behind my neck or else it would have been too loose/booby. Loved it and got a ton of compliments!

Stunning dress.
The dress was a show stopper. Very flattering for a smaller chested person. It was comfortable and elegant. The fit was great but did run slightly large in the bust area. ( I'm 5,6" , 125lbs and wore the 6L, I should have worn the 4) I was self conscience of showing too much skin - fashion tape helped. It's long so wear tall heals. So many compliments- I'd rent it again!

Favorite formal dress I've rented from rtr!
I didn't expect to like this dress as much as I did but I loved it! Material is stretchy and easy to dance and eat in. I didn't use boob tape but probably would next time only because I almost had a few slips when sitting down. Wore with 3.5 inch heels and it was the perfect length! Totally recommend!

Not wedding appropriate
Rented this for a wedding and def couldn't wear it... it fits true to size and the fabric is thick. Other than the fact that it was so low cut I would have looooooooved it. Will rent again for an event that it's more appropriate. I was worried it would be short based on reviews, but I'm 5'6 and the regular was ok to wear with heels.

Showstopper!
This dress was amazing! Heavier material but not to heavy, has a lot of give, so stretchy I feel like I could do yoga in it! I wore the 12L (which is an 8) - it showed everything but nothing spans can't fix! I tried the 14 but he cross in the back was too loose so I decided on the 12. Was a very comfortable dress even with he plunging neckline.

Very Flattering Dress for Gala Event
This was a fantastic dress to rent. The fabric is nice, but a little heavier than I expected. Because the fabric is thicker I did not need to wear a bra so the plunging neckline was not an issue. This dress does run big which I was not expecting even though reviews all mentioned it. I am normally never the smaller size. I recommend getting your normal size and a size smaller. I wore the smaller dress.

Beautiful dress! Stretchy super comfortable!
This dress is beautifully made. Thick fabric but stretchy which hugged in all the right places. Can't wear a bra with this dress and wasn't really needed because of the thick fabric. I would recommend to get fashion tape on the breast area. Although my boobs stayed in place I was checking every so often.

Liked but didn't love
Although I ordered the long, the dress still seemed too short for heels which I ended up wearing anyway but was just slightly too short in my opinion. I was in between sizes and went up in order to be more comfortable in the stomach area, it's not very forgiving. The top is beautiful and was just the right amount of skin. The material is thicker, not sure I'd wear this in mid summer weather. Overall happy, kid wish the king was longer.

Elegant and well made
I rented this for a college formal. I had never used RTR so I was nervous but wanted something that I could only wear to an event like this one. I have slight shoulder so the straps were big at first but I simply rolled them in a bit and discretely clipped it and then it was perfect. I didn't need to wear a bra or even tape because the material is thick and very forgiving. I didn't really dance in this but I could walk perfectly fine. Photographed nicely and got compliments all night long!

Super chic stunner
Incredible dress. It fit like a glove. The plunging neckline was so sexy, but still classy. The thick material made me feel secure in the dress and smoothed out my lines. I did not have to use fashion tape for the chest area, but I did choose the smaller size to keep it tight in that area. I felt amazing in this dress and it was perfect for this Brooklyn wedding. Would definitely rent again. I got compliments all night on this one.

Perfect black-tie wedding
I had eyes up this dress for months and loved the way it fit. I was between the 8 and 10 and ended up going with the 10 since it's more fitted in the hips. I have a very small bust so I wasn't worried about showing too much up to. You'll definitely need fashion tape. If you're taller than 5'6" I'd suggest going a size up for length -I could only get regular. The material is stretchy, heavier > lighter (but still able to wear spanx), and able to dance all night. Loved it!

Well fitting but very low cut
This has a nice quality material that is flattering and smoothing but the top is very low. I ultimately felt uncomfortable to wear this to a work black tie. Would be good for a personal social event.

Comfortable and classy
I rented this dress as one of two options for a gala event. It arrived just as it was pictured. And the reviews are right--it's gorgeous! The fabric has a good stretch to it and it manages to hold everything in without needing any shapewear. Only one problem for me: I overestimated my size and ended up ordering both of these dresses in sizes that were too big for me. I would rent this again in my right size as soon as I have another reason!

Best service!
This is the first time I have used RTR. I ordered my dress on Monday, and by Thursday the 2 sizes were here. Just in time for my event Saturday night. The dresses came nicely placed in a garment bag. I wore the 2R and it fit like a glove on my hips. I am 5'6'' and usually wear a 27 in jeans. My hips and booty are large for my frame so most of the time, clothes are hard to find, especially dresses. I was very happy with how this dress conformed with my curves. The only reason I did not give a 5/5 is because all night I kept having to adjust the top half of the dress. When I sat down the top would bow out and so I had to be very careful. Word of advise: this dress fits true to size but if you typically have to go up a size because of your bottom half (like me) the top will be run a little big and it may not be the best dress for a very formal event. Thanks RTR!!

Best dress ever.
I absolutely LOVED this dress. It fit great and even with the low cut, I never felt like anything would be exposed. I got so many compliments all night! The split in the back was great so I could still move and dance.

The best dress for a formal affair!
I have never received as many compliments as when I wore this dress! It fit like a glove but was very easy to dance in. No spanx were needed underneath :) It does run short but I am 5'1/ 5'5 in heels so if you are taller get the long.

Bella of the Ball!!
Overall the dress was STUNNING!!! Pros: Goes well with brown skin complexion. Great material. Form fitting and very flattering. I received a lot of compliments. Cons: Based on others review, I got the dress a size to big it showed off my cleavage area too much. The dress top curved in the back because my upper body is small. I'm also very curvy so the dress constantly kept turning from one side to the other side. I fought with the dress all night long.

The compliments did not stop!
I'm an athletic build and a mom of a 7month old. I wanted stretch and coverage, but I still wanted to feel sexy. This was the perfect balance. The only tough part was the dress was a little too heavy for the double stick tape in the chest area. As long as you wear your true size, there should be no slips !

Perfect fit!
Awesome dress! I am 5"3ish, maybe a bit shorter and the dress just touched the ground without heels, making it great for shorties. I am usually a 34B/C, had to wear with fashion tape to keep it down because was a bit loose in the chest. The material was comfortable, durable, and hugged in all the right places. Wore it with spanks to hide some mid belly fat. Received multiple compliments. Wore it to a black tie optional wedding.

Risqué
The dress fit true to size and was a real show stopper. I also felt very 'secure' the entire evening. That said, in hindsight it's probably not the most appropriate attire for a work gala....

Jaw dropping elegant evening dress
Amazing dress! The material is a bit thick and tight in a good way because it keeps things in place but also still gives and has some room. Glad I got the Long because with heels it was just barely over my toes so if you're over 5'7 and wearing heels go long! The navy and black is elegant and the back two thick cross cross looked gorgeous!! I got so many compliments loved it

Perfect for a fall formal event
This dress was perfect and exactly what I was looking for - classic but the plunging top made it just the right amount of sexy. The material is thick, form fitting and hugs in all the right places. Used the reviews for sizing. If you're smaller chested the top is a little big and I had to check myself while dancing but it was worth it!

Worn for the Emmy Awards
Wore this and was freaking out until I put t on. Definitely a lot of boobs and when you sit it dips lower, but it is a gorgeous gown that allows you the freedom of going braless and still feeling secure! This was formal and perfect! There's a lot of boob, so make sure you are selecting this for an appropriate event, but you won't be disappointed! Also, I'm a 34 DDD and I normally wear a 6-10 depending on the cut. This is super stretchy but there is a hook for the zipper that will be snug and hold you in!

Out of my comfort zone
The low cut front was definitely out of my comfort zone, and I have never worn something like this but so glad I did. The dress was a nice thick material, so things stayed in place with the help of a little fashion tape. The slit in the back made it easy to move around and dance in. I wore the 6L (2US) with heels and it was the perfect length. It really did fit like a glove. Great dress, highly recommend if you're looking to try something you wouldn't normally wear.

Loved this dress! The material was thick and comfortable, I felt great all night! I wish it was longer though. If you're 5'5 or taller and wearing high heels I'd order the long.

This dress is a US size 2, and it fit like a glove. I am petite and I wore the dress with 6 inch platform heels. It is very comfortable and it caused a lot of heads to turn.The bottom part of the dress is a bit stretchy and the top stayed in place without stickies.

LOVED everything about it!
By far, the sexiest dress I have ever worn. And by far, the most comfortable dress I have ever worn. I have a small chest - A cup - and was worried that I wouldn't fill the top but it was perfect. I didn't need tape or anything to make this dress stay in place, it just did. I tried moving every which way and the dress covered every move. One super small complaint is that I did have to lay the dress flat all day of my event with a weight on the bottom hem to get it to lay flat. It totally worked. Seriously, rent this dress - best material which was super slimming and felt like i was wearing sweats.
