Sophistication in a dress
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I really wanted a dress that was formal without being floor-length, and this dress was perfect. It fit in all the right places, I never had to adjust or fuss with anything, and I was comfortable throughout the entire wedding (ceremony, dinner, dancing). I wish I could have kept it!

Nice Classic black dress
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was nice, but it def is not a show stopper. The front is very plain so you you really need to wear a large statement necklace. And I usually always wear a 4 but I definately could have used a 6. It was kind of tight on my thighs and the fabric does not give at all. Also what you can't see from this picture is the dress is actually very short (well for me). The bustle is long but the dress was def. Mid thigh. Sorry I don't have a full length pictures. I got lots a compliments, but I prolly wouldn't rent it again. Prolly better for straigt and narrow shorter person.

I recently wore this dress to a wedding this winter and I was not disappointed. This dress was so beautiful! Very classy and elegant. I paired it with a big chunky necklace, seeing as the neckline goes very high up. I loved the open back because I felt that it was sexy without being too revealing! As for the fit, I thought it was true to size and it felt great. It was comfortable and I was able to be up and dancing the whole night! Would definitely recommend for a wedding or another formal affair! :)

Thakoon is my favorite designer and this dress was a total knock out. The front of the dress is fitted and rouched but the back is the surprise. Fitted with a giant bow and open back this dress was AMAZING!

This dress is SO CHIC
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress came as a back up for a formal affair after the back up size of my first choice became unavailable. I went with my first choice because it fit perfectly in the one size I was sent, but this dress will stay on my list for future rentals. I think the fit is great - although I could have used a 2 and it's so unique. It needs an impressive necklace as the front comes up so high, I felt it needed something to break up all the fabric.

I wore this dress to a college reunion ball. Everyone complimented how elegant my look was. Everything stayed in place even when I danced like crazy. The skirt rides up slightly when sitting but what form-fitting dress doesn't? The fabric is not overly luxurious but certainly doesn't look cheap. It's the silhouette that leaves a mark and the V in the back that makes it stand out. This dress is special and beautiful.

Great Fit, Original Dress
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I got both the 0 and the 2 and went with the 0 because it was a little more fitted in the hips. I have a really straight figure and thought the dress was very flattering because it created the illusion of having curves. I got compliments all night long for this dress. It was a little shorter than I had expected and it fit me closer to mid thigh. My only complaint was that sometimes when I bent over to put my shoes on etc. the back button would pop open because the dress didn't have any give (my guess is that this probably could have been solved by going with a larger size). I wore this dress to a black tie affair and felt it was perfect for the event.

Sassy booty bow

Gorgeous dress. Fit a little small, but worth jumping up a size. Wore this to a rehearsal dinner and while it seems simple and demure from the front, the bow on the back takes the dress to another level.

Dramatic back

This dress is really cute in the back but the front is a little plain. I got lots of compliments though. If you are taking lots of front facing pictures this dress may not work for you.

Dress is incredibly well made... has internal straps to hold bow in place. Fits well and true to size if not a tiny bit large. I would order your typical size unless you are smaller around the hips (I found it largest there).

Elegant, sophisticated dress. Obsessed with the back!
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size

I agree with the other reviewer that the material is not as thick/stiff as one might expect from the picture. Inner lining is a very comfortable soft silk. There's also a hidden belt inside that cinches the waist; one of the belt loops was broken, but it still worked out fine and created the silhouette I wanted. Dress hits a few inches above the knee. Very high neck, higher than traditional boatneck. A different cut from what I am used to, but it created a whole experience and I felt unique in the crowd. Would definitely rent again!

The back of the dress was stunning, but the waist had no shape in the front. It was too large and came looking like it had been balled up in someone's suit case.

But if you are very thin, even the 0 is a little baggy. BUT I could have worn it and looked smashing. Recommend a black glitzy cuff.

I officiated my best friend's wedding and this dress was perfect. It's classy and the open back adds the right touch of sexy. I was asked "where did you get that dress" all night.

Weird fit
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress really didn't fit me. The low back and bustle were really cute, but the front was strangely tight in some places (very high on the neck, and cut in) and baggy in others (around the stomach.) I was disappointed in the dress and wore something else

Beautiful, but short!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
First of all, this dress was gorgeous - so simple and classy. I got tons of compliments!! However, it was a good thing I wore it to a function where I wasn't sitting down much, because it is much shorter than I expected, and the fabric has very little give, so when I sat down I had to be *very* careful to make sure I wasn't giving anyone a peek straight up my skirt. Now, I am somewhat tall (5'10") so this would probably be less of an issue on a shorter girl, but it's something to be aware of as it was a bit of a concern. I usually wear a 6, but ordered this in both a 6 and an 8 and ended up wearing the 8, simply for the length, overall they fit about the same but the 8 was a bit longer. Any bigger and the top would probably have been too big. Overall though, a lovely dress for a formal affair, I would recommend it!

I rented this dress for a charity ball. It was terrific. The fit was perfect, though a bit shorter than expected. I felt sexy and beautiful all evening. Thank you "Rent the Runway" for my Cinderella moment.

Great dress.
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size

Overall, very nice piece. Looks classic and elegant. It arrived a bit wrinkled, and I was not overly impressed with the fabric (I expected more of a stiff taffeta), so just be sure you can hang it up before wearing it. It was very comfortable to wear, even with the low back. If you have a smaller chest, the dress is fine without a bra, but you can also opt for a nu bra. The back is tasteful and is not overly low, which is perfect for a formal event.

I wore this dress to a wedding and it was uber chic! The back is amazing and super sophisticated- perfect for a city wedding. The fit is pretty easy breezy- I wore the Nu Bra since the back is pretty bare!
