A big hit at my engagement party!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Loved the dress - very simple and classy, although sexy at the same time with the lace-up back. Definitely gets you noticed! Wore this dress for my engagement party and my fiance loved it. Hit me about mid-calf, which was perfect since the top is so bare. It does run a bit small in the chest area. If you are more than an A cup, be prepared to show a bit of cleavage, as I did! Fashion tape was my friend, though, to keep the girls in place, so be sure to have it handy. My normal size, 0, fit great everywhere but the chest area. So I ended up wearing the 2, which fit better in the chest and about the same everywhere else. The fabric is very silky and the dress was very comfortable, with the exception of the straps making little grooves on my shoulders (I had to have the back laced tightly to make sure I didn't fall out of the top). I would rent this dress again. Another wonderful experience with Rent the Runway!

Sexy back!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The photos of this dress don't do it justice. I've rented many times, and this was one of my favorite styles to date. I recommend it for size B bust or smaller since the skinny straps are your support. It's sexy, classic and the back is to die for. At first I didn't think it was dressy enough for a Saturday night wedding, but paired with the DVF clutch and Dannijo earrings, hair and makeup, I truly felt beautiful and at my best. My husband loved it!

Perfect cocktail dress- Timeless and Elegant

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was perfect for the cocktail style wedding I just attended. I wanted something elegant but not too formal. The fit was perfect minus the low cut neckline. I was worried I may come out of it when we danced but I was not wearing any Hollywood tape. (Probably would have been less worried with that.) I am a 32C and would not recommend this dress for anyone bigger than a B/C. The lace up back is really beautiful. I suggest you tie it as tight as possible as it loosened up a little bit as the night went on. Overall a very well constructed dress that has a lot of versatility depending on how it's accessorized. Timeless, elegant with a little bit of edge.

This dress is really pretty and fits true to size. The length could be a little hard for some people to pull off. The ability to adjust this was great, since you can't wear a bra - it still REALLY lifted the girls.

This dress was perfect. Simple, elegant and sexy.

This Tibi dress fit like a glove. I'm almost always a size 6, and the 6 fit perfectly. I was a little worried about a possible nip-slip on the dance floor, so I definitely recommend purchasing the hollywood tape. Don't bother renting this dress if you are larger than an A-Cup. I also recommend for a taller girl. I think the length would have been off if I was any shorter.

The perfect combination of sexy and classy!

The dress was much smaller than expected. The bodice was pretty tight and was difficult to zip. The top is very low cut and is difficult to wear with a bra. Otherwise, it was wonderful! The fabric is soft and comfortable, and the laces in the back added a sexy edge to the dress.

The back of this dress is what really catches the attention!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am usually right on with dress sizes when renting and never need the larger size, but I did for this dress. You do want it a tad tight because there really is no room for a bra. I tried my backless bra and even that showed. The material is thin so you could see all the lines. Definitely for a smaller chested woman. It fell right below my knee and I am 5'10" so it was nice to have a dress that was not too short for me. The back was great and I did my hair with a horizontal braid across the back of my head. I wish I could have met everyone that night back first since it all looked so great! I also liked dressing it up with some big jewelry.

teeny top!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Sweet LBD, all the reviews were spot on. The back makes it unique, and the top is as tiny as other reviewers commented on. The 6 and 8 were very similar in size, I opted for the 8 with the hope it would stay up a little better. I used fashion tape, but was still a little nervous about having everything stay in place...definitely better for the smaller busted ladies!

I ordered this dress 2xs now. And finally found it online to purchase it. I can't say enough about this dress! It's so casually sexy! Like, "oh, me, sexy? Really? I'm so not even trying!" I wore it to a glam dinner and a nightclub afterwards. Also, wore it with flats to a lunch with friends. Sooo ...Amazing. You won't regret it.

So flattering and sexy yet classic. I wore it to a wedding and was able to dance all night long and still feel comfortable. Received TONS of compliments and felt amazing in it. A little long for petite girls like me but the dress was flowy and moved just enough to still flatter!

Pretty, simple but sexy little black dress.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
It's "corset" style (although there is no ribbing)...perhaps I wanted a little too much cleavage in the front so I wore it tight. The skinny (but sturdy!) strings left marks on my shoulders. I'm 5-2 and wore very high heels and the dress still hit just above my knees, which was good because the back is sexy enough. The fabric was also VERY staticy and kept clinging to my legs.

Confusing to put on, lots of cleavage.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
You'll definitely need some assisting figuring this dress out. The straps in the back cross and you'll need a hand to make sure you're putting it on correctly, unless you're dexterous (I am not!). Once you finally get this bad boy on, it's pretty cute and simple. However, I didn't feel comfortable wearing it into a church. It's pretty low cut and even with a small bust, I felt like I was spilling out., and I knew if I was drinking I'd most likely have a wardrobe malfunction (you cannot wear a bra with this). I decided not to wear this out. Cute for a fancy dinner or birthday party, but too revealing for my taste.

Never received so many compliments!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Once I figured out how to get this dress on, I absolutely loved it! I will say I needed some help from my husband to lace me up--it reminds me of a corset, and I imagine it would be difficult to get on without help. Also, definitely double knot it! The ties are rather slippery. I realized as the night went on that my dress was becoming looser because my bow had come undone--oops! But once I relaced it and double knotted it, the dress stayed put through the night. The material is much thinner and lighter than I was expecting, making it perfect for a warm beach wedding. Obviously can't wear a bra with this, so if you're on the busty side, not sure how it would look. I really wish I owned this dress! Sexy and classy at the same time!

This dress is amazing. I got so many compliments all night and did not want to send it back! The midi length paired with the corset back and the low cut front is sexy but not over the top. I really recommend this dress for anyone of any size - it is so so flattering! Also a good tip: if you are worried about sizing, order the size up. If it is a little big you can synch up the back to make it tighter :)

LOVED the back, but definitely did not work for me... would not suggest to anyone over a B cup!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Well, the dress I originally ordered was not available last minute. Customer service was great, they sent me a few dresses, but none of them worked out. Two hours before we had to leave for the wedding, I received this as my last option! I REALLY wanted it to work out- I'm a 32 D cup and from the reviews, it seemed that I might be able to adjust the top to work for a larger bust. At first, I thought it would be okay... about an hour later, on our way there, I realized it might not work. Let's just say it didn't look very classy after sitting and moving around after an hour. There were photos that were way worse, but I couldn't put them up. Customer service was accommodating, but I wish I had just received my original order. I had to change half way through the wedding to an old winter dress I had in my car!

Super sexy back! Not for busty ladies!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Vacation
My husband posted this photo of the back of the dress because he thought it looked so good. I felt beautiful wearing it. Not a very high quality dress, but I loved the cut. Very low in the front and I struggled to keep the "girls" covered through dinner and I am not very big busted (plus I nursed 4 babies and I'm 43)!. I started to wear a backless bra, but you could see the top peeking out of the cups on the front of the dress so I had to go commando..

one smokin' lbd!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
this dress had some highs and lows. first off, it was very difficult to put on alone...the strings needed to be readjusted in order to zip it up and then it takes a good deal of time finding the right tautness to keep the dress up without squeezing too tight on your back. now, once it is on, yes it looks super sexy, the cut is flattering and the length was perfect for my height, hitting just below the knee. my biggest issue was the sizing actually...the 6 fit well except there didn't seem to be a long enough string for me to fit it properly, i have a feeling the ends were cut off by another wearer or a dry cleaner because they were so short that i couldn't even tie them off at the bottom. definitely unlike the long, drapey, loose bow in the photo of the model. the size 4 had a much longer string which made the top more comfortable and it actually fit better, but the bodice was too short on my long frame and looked a little weird, hence why i went with the 6. overall i felt really sexy but i was nervous about the strings popping out of the loops and my whole dress falling to the floor all night. also, because i couldn't do much adjustment to the bodice due to the short strings, once i finished up at the cocktail hour it fit quite snug and was less than comfortable while sitting. i would recommend this to girls with no boobs, cause a bra has no place in this dress.

Do not rent this dress if your breasts are larger than an A cup! I am a C and I was spilling out.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I am 5' 8", 145 lbs and I have a very narrow rib cage and shoulders. I wear a C cup and my breasts popped out of this dress as soon as I moved even a little. Luckily, I had a back-up dress that was perfect. Also, the fabric is fairly thin and unlined, so it feels a little on the flimsy side. It would be great on someone with very small breasts at a dressy but informal event.

Great dress -- lots of cleavage, not for the modest.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I usually wear a 0 or a 2 in Tibi, but based on the reviews I got the size 4 hoping there would be more room in the chest area. Because the dress ties up in the back, the 4 worked great b/c I was able to cinch it very tight. Very very flattering dress for those who love their waist!! The top is very revealing, I am a full C and this dress was borderline for me. I almost did not wear it due to the amount of cleavage I had, but I wound up wearing it and getting so many compliments. Its not vulgar, but definitely not if you are meeting your boyfriends family for the first time. Overall, great dress!!

Classis dress, perfect for wedding

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is the perfect black dress. Would recommend for girls with smaller boobs as you can't wear a bra. Suggest having a friend/boyfriend help you get in to the dress as it takes a little bit of maneuvering to get the back just right. Once everything is in place, it's an extremely comfortable and sexy dress.

I wore this to an all black party. This dress fit like a glove. I loved how it cinched my waist in and the corset like back is uber sexy. As noted previously, the neckline is deep but nothing wrong with showing off a little cleavage, once in a while. I paired with a statement necklace, red lips and white pumps. You can easily get away with little to no accessories and still look fab! I wish I could keep it.

Size worn: 6

Sadly, neither the 6 or 4 fit me. The waist was fine, but my 34B chest was not enough to make it look at all reasonable. And the length was all wrong for a short legged pear shape. I'd read in reviews and saw in pics that this would work for my petite pear frame, but unfortunately, it was all wrong for me.

This is a great, flattering dress! I love how simple and natural it is. It fits perfectly, though you have to do some manuevering to make sure the top covers your chest. Once you figure out how to tie it properly in the back, you're off the races and don't have to do too many adjustments to avoid nip-slip. This dress was super fun and flirty and the perfect summer dress to pick up our marriage license!

I wasn't sure about the attire at this wedding, and I didn't want to be overdressed if it wasn't black tie. This dress was perfect, it toted the line between black tie and cocktail and it is gorgeous in person. I am petite and small busted (between 32B and 34B), and I felt like I needed just a little something to fill out the dress. I wore Take Outs (silicone cups) with it and they stayed put all night and made me feel more confident. I would definitely rent this again.

I ended up having to wear an old dress of mine, so I remember not loving my outfit.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress is really pretty! It's very light and simple, which makes it nice for warmer weather. Unfortunately, I couldn't wear it because it was a little too small in the bust. My breasts barely stayed in when I bent down to slip on my high heels. I also didn't buy that tape, which may have helped keep the girls in? Either way, beautiful dress, but it would be a little too revealing for a wedding if you're over a B cup.

Not for women with breasts!

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Date
Absolutely loved the back of the dress. It was gorgeous, but my breasts would not stay in the dress. It really is made for maybe an "A" cup and absolutely no bigger unless you mind pushing them back in all night. It was sexy, just didn't hold them. Also, I had to tighten the strings up enough to hold up the front that the spaghetti strings kind of made me raw. I was really sad this dress didn't work for me, because it really was a beautiful dress.
