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.

RTR Stylist Review!

Felt like a celebrity in this dress! Running true to size, we recommend sizing up for backup. It is fitted throughout the midsection and hips, but the fabric does have stretch. I'm between a 4/6 and I felt the UK 10R (US size 6R) was so flattering and fit me like a glove! It is great for any bust size as there is room at the bust, but you may want to have fashion tape handy! Without heels, it was 4 inches from the floor on me. Pair this look with an updo and bold statement earrings at your next gala, you'll be sure to stand out!

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?)

Sexy, stretchy, stunning

The stretch in this dress was perfect because I have a small bust size. I needed to go down a size in the hips so that I could cover my top and dance all night. I had to wear fashion tape to keep the top from moving but I felt so comfortable in this dress.

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!

Awesome dress for a black tie wedding!

This dress was extremely flattering and fun! I am 5'10' and usually wear a size 4-6. I wore flats and the length was perfect! I was 20 weeks pregnant when I wore this and it was so comfortable! I loved that this dress could be packed easily with no worries about getting wrinkled! Very easy dress all around!

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!

LOVED

Wore this dress to a black tie wedding. I could have gone with a 6R but only had the 8R and made it work. It's a beautiful dress, so comfortable and very stylish. I received many compliments and felt good in it the whole night.

doesn't apply because I didn't wear it

Ended up not wearing it because the cleavage was too exposed for me, and sides were too low. Magic tape didn't help close the cleavage gap.

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.

I felt very comfortable and confident in this dress!

Loved the fit of the dress! Material was thick and stretchy, very flattering. The only con is that the material up top gaped when I sat down or moved to dance. I tried fashion tape but it didn't work well because of the thickness of the material. All in all- I loved it!

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.

Dress was beautiful and actually very comfortable to wear - thick material that sucks things in!

Please note that the dress sizes are in UK Sizes - I ordered the UK size 4 which was a size 0 in US sizes - this was the only size available for my timing. I probably would have ordered the UK size 6 if it was available. The Regular length was perfect - I'm 5'6" and I wore 3 inch heels. Definitely think this dress is better suited for someone who has a smaller breast size. I did use double sized tape on the V neckline and the sides to prevent any "peek-a-boos" - there would have been gaping if I sat down. Overall, stunning dress - sophisticated & sexy!

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.

Stunning dress!

For the most part, fits true to size; slightly snug if you have hips but very forgiving material. I ordered a size up but the chest area was too big so I went with the 0. Very comfortable dress and received a ton of compliments. Definitely a show-stopper kind of dress and was very pleased with this wear.

Stunning, Sexy, and Sophisticated

Compliments all night long! I was impressed with how comfortable the dress was - sturdy fabric with a little stretch makes it great for hugging every curve, but forgivable for little bumps. I started the night with boob tape, but ended up taking it off because it was unnecessary - the straps stayed put and kept the girls in place without a problem. The length was perfect for heels - just barely brushed the floor. 100% would rent again.

Amazing, comfortable, sexy

I wore this dress and too be honest was a little nervous with how low cut it is. I prepared myself with tape. I used toupee tape and medical tape. Once I knew I was not going to fall out of the dress I felt like a million dollars in this dress. Compliments all night. Danced all night. The color was a true navy on the bottom. Heavy thick fabric. Def would rent this again. Make sure you check the sizes - it runs in different sizes. I am usually a 4/6. I had to get an 8.

Was attending my 10 year college reunion and I wanted to be sexy and classy...this dress was a hit!

The 10R/US 6 fit slightly tighter, was shorter in length, and the back cross straps were all bunched up with my boobs on the run. But with the 12R/US 8, the dress was the perfect length, the straps laid down, and my boobs were safe! Fabric is think and stretchy, but not heavy. The blue color is rich and it really made the dress pop! I loved this dress!!!

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.

This dress was FANTASTIC for a fundraiser gala - got compliments all night long!

Absolutely would recommend this dress - particularly for anyone who's a little taller and has a smaller bust. I didn't have to wear anything under the dress on top and it fit like a glove. You could wear spanx underneath this if you wanted to - but you don't have to, the material is a little heavier and keeps everything in place. Would recommend having your hair up as the back is much prettier than the pictures give it credit for.

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!

You just have to try it on to see!

I'm about 5'5 145lbs and 34C Usually a size 6R in RTR dresses but rented the 10R because it runs in UK sizes. I loved this dress. The material felt great and had a comfortable stretch to it. The fit was excellent and the sturdiness of the fabric held every thing in place nicely. The dip in the front is low and shows a lot of cleavage and a little side boob. Fashion tape will be your best friend if you plan on dancing in this dress! I would definitely recommend this dress and will absolutely rent it again!!

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.

Very comfortable and form fitting dress.

I loved this dress. One of my favorites from RTR. It was very comfortable and fit great. I ordered a L after reading the reviews and it was way too long for me. It fits very true to size all over, including length.

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!!
