Loved this dress! Perfect for a charity event.
For was true to size. Both the 0 and 2 fit, the only difference on me was in the length and I though the 0 looked better. Pretty lace detail and I received several compliments.

Fit like a glove!
This was actually a backup dress as my original order arrived with some damage, but I'm so happy it worked out this way because I adore this dress. It's simple and classy but still a little fun with the lace and ruffle. I wore it to a holiday cocktail party and felt beautiful in it. I'm normally a 2 and I wore a 2 (I'm 5'6, 128 lbs and a 34 B). This dress has no stretch to it at all and is quite fitted at your natural waist, so if you're curvier or have a larger bust I'd suggest going up a size for your backup. It wasn't comfortable to sit in it but it was comfortable standing and walking around. I paired it with black peep toe pumps and a fun statement necklace. I would definitely rent this dress again (or even buy it!) and was so sad to have to return it!

Flattering, comfortable, and perfect for a dressy occasion.
I run between a 4 and a 6 in dresses and while the 4 fit, it was just a little snug in the hip area (I have bigger hips). The 6 was perfect - it was comfortable, moved well, the length was great and I felt comfortable and dressed up all at the same time. I've rented from RtR many times and this is by far, my favorite rental to date.

This dress is fitted, but cut in a way that is flattering. Hides the tummy region well while showing off the legs and cinching the waist.

Great dress! Got many compliments.
Great LBD! The fit was great, very comfortable. The only thing was the bust area was a little baggy; it looked saggy if I slouched. Other than that, I would definitely rent this dress again! I recommend wearing with a strapless bra.

Great lace LBD
I wore this to my best friend's engagement party. I think it is a nice modest lace LBD that can be worn for work events and more formal events.

Friend's wedding at the Naval Academy
The dress (size 4) fit perfectly! Very comfortable, and allows for dancing. I have an athletic build and am usually concerned dresses won't fit up top (they are usually too big), but this dress was fantastic. Loved it, and received tons of compliments.

Dress does not have any give so is not super comfortable to sit in. I would recommend getting the size up for your back up size.

I was skeptical when I ordered the dress because peplum style dresses don't typically look good on me because I have a big bust, but this dress fit PERFECTLY!

The dress was so comfortable and easy to dance in(:
It fits so well and it's comfortable. I was worried it would be itchy, but it turned out to be just fine. the length was classy and still not too modest.

A beautiful, evening wedding in Charlottesville, Virginia!
THIS DRESS IS AHHHH-MAZING!!! I'm short and fairly petite so finding a dress that fits is sometimes challenging. This was my first time ever using Rent The Runway and I am so happy that this was my first dress! I ordered a size 0 & a size 2 and ended up never even trying on the size 0, as the size 2 fit perfectly! I was worried about the dress being too long but with heels, it balanced the length out. Plus, I was at a fancy wedding so the longer, black, lace dress really fit the venue well! The back of the dress was gorgeous as well- shows off some skin on your upper back- but I didn't get a photo of the back (sorry!). The dress is a satin/silky material with an all-lace overlay. I danced ALL night in the dress and it was very comfy! I will say- the material isn't "stretchy" so if you're looking for a stretchy dress- this is not for you! With that being said, the dress was still extremely comfortable and I had numerous compliments! The dress is very elegant and classy. I paired it with my own chunky necklace, but I almost wore the dress without a necklace. It's so timeless you really don't need much jewelry! I would highly recommend this dress to anyone!!

This dress made me feel very elegant for going out to dinner to celebrate our 5th anniversary!
The dress had some stretch, so it was comfortable to sit down in. The ruffle along the waist was nice for hiding an area I'm not crazy about.

Loved this dress! I got so many compliments...it was comfortable and fit great! The only thing I didn't love was it was a little tight when I sat down, so I had to keep pulling it up to sit so it wouldn't be so tight!

Took a risk and didn't order a second size
I wore this to a really casual wedding rehearsal venue. I was really nervous that I was going to be super over dressed but it ended up working out perfect as all the other bridesmaids wore black without planning. I'm tall so it went to my knees and the upper open back was really cute. I'd definitely rent this again.

Perfect LBD for the occasion. Classic, fitted , yet comfy. Flirty too!
My daughter was chosen to be an usher at the local high school graduation and was asked to wear a black dress for the occasion. She is very involved in many activities and we did not have time to travel to the nearest shopping centers to look for a dress!! RTR to the rescue!!! Perfect dress for the occasion, classic and modest yet flirty enough to turn heads. Thank you RTR!

This was a perfect dress for an elegant wedding on the water!
I ordered both the 6 and the 8. I found that the 8 fit well but was loose around my stomach. Choosing the 6 was the perfect fit! It was comfortable all night and I was able to dance the night away. I suggest wearing a strapless bra so that bra straps don't take away from the beautiful lace design. Add a bold bright necklace and you are good to go!

Perfect fit
I ordered this dress as a backup plan in case the other dress didn't fit or didn't look good on me. I ended up wearing this dress to the wedding I went to. It fit perfectly! It was really comfortable when I was standing up, but it became pretty tight when I sat down or tried to bend down. I loved the fit of this dress though, it hid my little pooch belly and gave me some delicate curves. The lace was a nice touch as well. I'm usually a 10-12 and the 12 fit just fine.

Flattering, cute, and comfortable
I ordered this dress in a 0 and a 2. I am hourglass/slightly pear shaped and found that both the 0 and 2 fit the top part of my body well but the bottom runs smaller than the top so I ended up going with the 2 so that I would be more comfortable sitting, dancing, moving around- etc. with the 2 the top was SLIGHTLY too big but it was barely noticeable a really a non-issue. I felt sophisticated and chic. Perfect length and the sheer top balances out the length. Definitely recommend this dress and would rent it again!

Perfect LBD
It was absolutely perfect--I need to own it. I actually received this one after an issue with my original order, and I'm so glad the problem happened so I could wear THIS dress. It fit perfect- the length, the waist, the chest. I wore it for a bachelorette party- but I would even wear it for a work event in the future.

I liked it!
I wore this dress to the Nutcracker ballet (my husband was Mother Ginger). I really liked it. It's more on the conservative side, which was what I wanted. I said a prayer and thank god the 6 zipped. I had no room to wiggle. Once I got it on, it was a bit snug but totally worked. I really liked it! It wasn't my favorite dress but was perfect for the ballet.

Great classy dress and comfortable!
I rented this dress for a black tie optional party and it was perfect. I was 9 weeks pregnant and none of my cocktail dresses were fitting without showing my growing baby belly :)!! Great fit and I little loose in the belly, just like I wanted. Thanks RTR, another great dress!!

This dress was perfect!
This dress was extremely flattering and very comfortable! I have an usual body type, but the peplum covers any type of belly that you might have and is also very stylish. It was a little snug on my hips (bunched a little but nothing major) and slightly loose in my chest area, but like I said my body type is a little different and you really couldn't tell at all, I only noticed because I was wearing it. This was my first RTR experience and I picked a good one! Highly recommend this dress for any event!

Classy and perfect
I rented this for my grandfather's memorial. I wanted something pretty but still somewhat somber and conservative. This fit the bill. I wore the zero and it fit almost perfectly - except at the top. I'm pretty short, so the space from the top of the lined bodice to the shoulder was slightly too tall for me. You could see the top edge of my bra if I slouched, but as long as I sat up straight it was no big deal.
