Best rental yet

This is my favorite dress I've ever gotten from RTR. I️ wore this after two days of thanksgiving eating and the thick stretchy material held everything in perfectly. I️ am 5'7" and wore 5" heels and I️t was a perfect length (maybe even slightly too long as I️t still dragged about an inch). The slit is high but makes the dress easy to move in. I️ am usually a 4/6 (more often a 6) and I️ wore the 10L. Really sad to see this one go!

Was the size you wore a 10US or 10UK?

When it says 10L is that the UK size or the US size?

Jaw. Dropper.

This dress was STUNNING. Honestly, it was SO beautifil. But, there was a major con... it runs small! I rented a 0 and 2, which in this dress is a 4 and 6.. I physically got stuck in the 4, and the 6 was super snug as well, I almost didnt wear it. It was extremely uncomfortable for the first 30-45 mins, but seemed to stretch out a bit. I'm thin to begin with, 5'6 and 120lbs, but I had to suck it in all night.. super form fitting and you could see all! Butttt... it hurts to be beautifl sometimes, right??? I did feel like a million bucks and the amount of compliments I recieved was well worth the little bit of stuggle!

Perfect black dress!

Rented this dress for an NYE wedding. It was elegant but sexy. Only downside to this dress is how small it runs. I am isually an 8/10 and I got a 12R. There isnt any stretch to the dress. FYI put the dress on before you do your makeup! Overall loved the dress I was sad to see it go.

Beautiful twist on the LBD. Incredible neckline.

The pictures dont do it justice. Its a gorgeous dress with subtle sex apeal. The cutout neckline is a perfect fit and didnt need adjusting all night. The thick, stretchy dress fits like spanx, covers everything. I didnt even need to wear a bra. Its a little tricky to put on overhead though. I had to reado pieces if my updo. The dress is in european sizes. Im 5'7 and 142, normally a size 4. The size 8R was a perfect fit. The 10R was a nice fit too but had some wrinkles in the back i couldnt smooth out.

Amazing dress!

This is an AMAZING dress. I have never been more complemented than when i wore it! I usually wear a soze zero, but wore the 6R, and it was still pretty tight. Definitly a body con dress, but in such a classy way! The fabric is really nice and thick, so it helps hold you in! Love this dress!!

Runs incredibly small

I had a love-hate relationship with this dress. Im typically a size 6 and after reading reviews of this dress I ordered an 8 and a 10. I ended up wearing the 10 and it fit like it was made for me (a hair short because they didn't have the long in that size) but i honestly would have probably been more comfortable in a 12- which is ridiculous. You shouldn't have to size up 3 sizes! The zipper is also poorly designed and flimsy. It split right when we arrived at rhe wedding but was fixed by re-zipping and never came undone again but made me really self conscious. Because of the zipper location, backing and stretchy material of the dress, whenever i stood the zipper was bunched up and it looked incredibly unflattering. What saved the dress is that it worked perfectly for my body type and style- i received a number of compliments and felt classy yet sexy. I styled it only with long dangling earrings- no necklace or bacelet. While i felt 10/10, I'd never rent this particular dress again or recommend it to any of my friends.

Size up. Im a consistent US 2 (waist: 25, hips: 35, bust 32B) and the 8 was tight on me. Good tight, but tight.

Super Sexy & Classy

Loved this dress! It's very form fitting and sexy without being over the top or showing too much. The fabric is thick and stretchy and feels quite nice on. I had the exact same thing happen with the zipper that another renter described - I was messing with the inside of the dress while I had it on, stretched it out a bit too much, and the zipper came undone. I took it off and fixed the zipper without a problem, but the fear was then deeply instilled in me. I would love to wear this dress again. I wish I got better pictures because I felt like a knockout.

Loved this dress. Runs small. I am 5'2" 123 lbs and after reading all reviews decided on a 10R and if fit perfect. Felt sexy and elegant all night and received many compliments. Wish I could keep it.

Sexy and Chic! Kinda tight but in a good way!

I have gained a lil weight, so I was a lil nervous about a form fitting gown; but this one caught my eye! I am a 10 in dress now. I got 12L with no back up dress! This dress was sexy and classy! Because of the style it required very little accessorizing!!! Love it! My first Rent the Run Way experience!

Knockout Dress!!! You'll be the most elegant & mysterious woman in the room! :)

STUNNER. In my opinion, this dress runs small. The 8 barely fit me, & I'm consistently an XS/25 jeans/0-2 in non-formalwear. It does have a good % of spandex/lycra/stretch, though, so plan to wear it for @ least an hour before stepping out, & it'll warm & meld to your body. SOOOO elegant, restrained, & yet smoldering!!! Also: plan to wriggle into it like a worm - BEFORE doing your hair! Size up, order a larger backup size, grab your fave shaper - & RENT. THIS. DRESS.

Couldnt wear either size

I'm normally around an 8, sometimes a 6 depending on the stretch. I ordered this in both a 10 and a 12 and neither size worked! I'm pretty large up top and this didnt even come close to fitting my shoulders/breasts. The rest of the dress, however - fit fine! I think it would have been cute if i had had a correct size.

Stunning Dress

I rented this dress for a dual purpose - wedding/New Year's eve celebration. The dress was amazing and it was very fitting for both occasions! There's some stretch to it, so it's rather forgiving in terms of sizing. I wore SPANX to even out my undergarments underneath. Make sure you have a strapless bra obviously, and you'll be good to go! Would absolutely rent again.

Heavy fabric, definitely runs on the small size

I rented this dress for a black tie affair. The dress was really beautiful, but it does run small. My only 'complaint' is that dress material is very heavy (it's fully lined in the same material as the outside so it's a thick dress), definitely best suited for a cold weather climate/event. I did not end up wearing this dress as the one I received had a split side seam. I would rent again.

Love this dress! Perfect for the black tie wedding I attended. After reading reviews, I got the 10L, I usually wear a size 4-6 (5'6", 130lbs). Fabric is nice, thick and stretchy--yet very fitting. Only complaint is that the side with the zipper didn't lay flat, but I got over that really fast. Beautiful dress!

Compliments all night long!

I wore this for a gala and loved it! I am petite so I had to hem tape the bottom with fashion tape, but other than that, it was perfect! Like other reviewers have said, it does run a pretty small so be sure to size up. I received compliments all night long - it is elegant, modest, but still super sexy!

Unbelievably gorgeous!!!

I rented this dress as a backup for a dress that ended up being too big. As everyone else stated this dress runs small. I'm 5'2", about 125 lbs, and 6 mos postpartum. This dress had me snatched!!! I put it on about an hour before the event and the stretch warmed up and the dress fit like a glove. It held in everything without the need for shape wear, moved well, and was just perfect. The event I attended was a black tie gala with very wealthy people. I felt better dressed than most women there. It made me feel comfortable, beautiful, and above all confident. The photos of this dress really doesn't do it justice. The neckline is unique and expressive. The material is substantial and the tailoring is fantastic. Truly exceeded my expectations in every way.

Showstopper, runs v. Small

Amazing dress for winter events. Order up and find your fave shaper. No strapless bra needed, as the dress is super tight, thick material. At 5'6 wearing "reasonable" 4 inch heels, a 10L would have looked better.

***Classily Cool***

This dress is beautiful and such a classic style. Pros: with proper shape wear beneath, I had a very sexy, curvy silhouette as the dress has a slight stretch that allows the dress to hug in all the right places without looking cheap or ill fitting. I felt modest and sexy at the same time. The wedding was a formal event in a cathedral. The fabric is very thick and expensive-looking, and the dress arrived ready to wear. For reference, I wore the 10r and am a size 4-6, 27-28 in jeans, 34c, 5'4", and weigh 140. With a 2.5-3" heel, the dress was the perfect length. Cons: the dress was a bit hard to put on and get out of. I definitely could have sized up. There is a slight stretch once you get the dress on.

Classic and sexy for black tie wedding

I am usually a 2 or 4 and wore the size 8R, so definitely runs small! The dress is like one big stretchy bandage, so it fits very snug but was still flattering. You do have to pull the dress over your head so watch out if you're getting your hair done! I am 5'5 and found the regular length to be great, even with 4 inch heels! so many compliments!

The perfect black tie dress!

This dress was perfect for the black tie event my husband and I attended. It ran slightly smaller than my normal size and also slightly shorter. Although I could have probably ordered the dress in a long, it still was comfortable and great for the occasion!

How fast and easy the process was with RTR.

I received two sizes and they are from the UK so they run small. The size 6R (2) was super snug around my DD and there was a hole on the side of the dress so that was an automatic no. I decided to try on the 8L and it for perfectly (I usually wear a 2P because I'm 5ft tall), minus the length. I used fashion tape to hem and it stayed on perfectly. The material is thick and hugs your body. The dress looked and felt expensive. I would recommend this dress to anyone. I wore it for a black tie wedding.

Loved this dress! Got so many compliments. It's a tight fit on the arms bust and butt so make sure that's something your ok with. I'm 5'1" and the regular cut fit me perfect with 3inch heels and I even changed into Sandals toward the end of the night and it still was a good fit.

Understated and Sexy

Yes they are all correct this dress runs SMALL. I can go anywhere from a 4 to an 8 in a dress size but I am typically a 6. I rented the 8 (12R) and 10 (14R) as a back up. The 10 was perfect for me but yes this dress is TIGHT. once it's on it's very comfortable but unless you have a perfectly flat tummy I'd recommend some shapewear for underneath for sure. Keep in mind as well that the slit on the right side for up fairly high so you'll want to get something higher but for underneath. The shoulder opening cuts so high on the left that I was able to wear a regular bra underneath which was great as well, I just swapped the straps to cross in the back and put the right bra strap to go around my neck in the front instead of behind. Very beautiful fabric and super chic tailoring. Love this dress.

The dress was a beautiful and simple black dress. However, it runs small. I wear a size 4 and I didn't get a bigger size so I assume I should of ordered a size 6.

REALLY tight. Beautiful. But order up up.

I loved this dress - wore it to a work gala. I made the mistake of ordering my back up size a size down. Read the reviews - always order up in the dress! I'm a solid size 6 but wear 4s too. Wish I had done a size up from the 10 - the 12 would have made me feel more confident. Just was very self conscious in the 10. But I'm definitely not used to bodycon dresses.

Loved this dress! It was perfect for the black tie formal wedding we attended. I am normally a size 2-4, waist 24-25, 5'3.5" and the 8L was a perfect fit for me! I suggest to size up definitely!!
