Simple show stopper!

This dress was so amazing - the picture doesn't show how cute the back is! I could have worn a 4 but it was just a little snug on the hips so if you are a little thicker around the hips like I am, a size up wouldn't hurt because the 6 fit great. I only wish more people could have seen me in it!

Stylist Review

The style looked like it would be loose fitting, however, there is a lining, which turns this into a more fitted style. If you are looking for a looser fitting style, I would recommend this to a more straight a narrow body type, not for curves. I loved the keyhole in the front, and the mesh detailing in the back. Really nice look.

Stylist Review

Sleek and easy to dress up or down. This fun LBD by Waverly Grey looks great with heels, boots, or flats. Running true to size, we recommend sizing up for backup. Since it's more of a shift I ordered the size 0, but would have preferred my typical size 2. The size 0 was a bit tight in the hip area, which made the back gape a bit. Easy to go bra-less or wear a nubra with. Overall a great style and a new go-to for a weekend night out!

Cute weekend dress

I was really excited to get this dress, but it was a little tight around my butt so I wasn't able to wear it. It's supposed to be a flow like dress, but it ended up bunching on my hips/butt. I would probably try to rent this again later in a bigger size. But if you have a big butt definitely go up a size!

So comfortable

I order an 8 and a 10. I thought the dress would be a little looser in the hip area when I rented this. However it was snug on the hips! I tried the 10 to see if it was bigger but then the top was way to loose and since the whole back is open I wasn't working! So I went with the 8 which fit fine it was loose on my waist an a little snug on my hips. But over all the dress was so comfortable and it looked great!

Dress fits horribly, extremely tight around hips and bottom and lose everywhere else

Ordered it because I though it was a nice fabric but it came in looking very cheap. I am thin and straight and narrow but both the 2 and the 4 were extremely tight around my bottom and really lose everywhere else. The back mesh is larger and more gaudy than expected. Overall a very unflattering dress, do not wage you money on this one

Gorgeous and simple. Not very figure-flattering, but does the trick!

Casual and classic lines, very beautiful dress, kind of sporty, but not very flattering to the figure. I liked it because I was planning to eat a big dinner and didn't have to worry about my belly, plus the back showed off my tattoo!

My first Rent the Runway!

Based on another review encouraging curvy girls to size up I did and didn't regret it. I usually wear size 8-10 and wore the 12 in this dress. The ten was just too small. If you have curves you'll want to size up for sure, was especially fitting around the tummy. I wore it with a backless stick on bra and it was great for a bachelorette party.

I wore this dress for Valentines Day. Its a simple design but the mesh back adds a nice detail and makes it memorable! The length was fine, even for my height. Very flow and flattering.

Cute dress with great details, but lacking in the material.

It wrinkles way fast! This might be okay for a night-time outfit, but I work it for work. It also doesn't have a ton of movement in the skirt even when I sized up, which was a bit of a disappointment. I loved the little details, but they don't outweigh the cons.

LOVE

This was a great formal but casual dress for my grandparents 50th anniversary party! I got a 6 and an 8 but went with the 8 because the 6 was tight on the backside but the length was very awkward. The 8 was a lot more flowy and I was very comfortable in it. However, make sure you wear a really good backless bra if you are fuller in the breast area! Overall loved it!

Not what I was expecting.

I thought this dress was adorable online and would make a great work outfit. Unfortunately it is not for those of us with larger hips of backsides. It was also very short on my 5'10" frame. Returning without wearing. Would be adorable on someone closer to 5'7" with a more narrow frame.

I love the fit of this dress - sexy and also conservative.

The open back detail is really nice on this dress, but I wasn't prepared with the right undergarment - I have to wear a bra most of the time. I opted to wear a nice black jacket with it at a professional convention reception, and still felt sexy with the triangle keyhole detail at the neckline. The length is also nice with a great pair of black heels. The size 6 on me was more snug at top than it shows on model as a loose shift.

Absolutely obsessed with this dress!

I wanted to keep this dress for another event later this week, but was bummed when I found out I couldn't extend my rental. I rented a size 4 and 6 and ended up wearing the 4 with no bra. It was a little too tight in the bust with one, but I liked the fit of the 4 better than the 6. I had no problem not wearing a bra, the lining in the top was thick enough to keep me comfortable. This dress made me feel super classy and a little sexy -- it was perfect! I'd rent this again in a heartbeat.

Comfortable, easy to wear dress!

For my body shape, the dress was a little loose up top and snugger through the hips. The length was perfect, but at 5 feet tall it would likely be on the short side for taller ladies. Being small chested, the fabric was thick enough that I didn't need to wear a bra. Overall a great balance of sexy and classy that was super comfortable for a night out with diner and a show. Loved it!

Beautiful wedding at an orchid farm

I wore this dress for an outdoor wedding and it worked great. I ordered a size 8 and 10 but ended up wearing the 10 since it allowed for a little more flow. It was a great length, the mesh/open backing added a good touch to the look, and it allowed me to stay cool for the outdoor wedding. I tried it on with heels but ended up wearing sandals. Both would have worked great. I would definitely recommend this dress and I'm likely to rent it again!

Such a fun and comfy dress!

I was concerned about the reviews regarding how the dress fit around the hips. Many mentioned it rides up so I decided to go for the 6. I feel I could've gone with a 4. The 6 didn't ride up, but I have small hips/tush, so it wasn't a problem to be in with. And the 6 fit a big big on the chest area. A 4 I imagine would've been more fitted and shaped me better. But it was a good enough fit and I loved the dress so I wore it anyway and got tons of compliments.

Flirty spin on an LBD

This shift dress is so fun with the open back! I agree with other reviewers that if you have hips or a butt, you may want to size up. It caught a tiny bit on my hips but I still felt comfortable particularly because I know it'd be dim lighting where I was. The material is light and fun and the back is kind of netted - it just makes it a little edgier overall and very fun to wear. The lining that some other people have mentioned is just on top and I didn't even notice it. This is one of my favorite rentals!

Tight in Hips!

Loved this style with the awesome back cut out but it does run tight in the hips. I recommend sizing up if you have any other body type than straight and narrow because this will pull around the bum and hip area. Otherwise, great style and will definitely rent again with a size larger.

I had no issue with the fit, Was warned the hips could be a little tight but I did not have any problems. Very comfy but still looked beautiful. I wore this dress without a bra and had no issues.

A true shift if you size up

I'm usually a size 2 in most dresses, a 4 if it is tight around the hips. I wore the 6 I got as a backup based on other reviews. I loved it. The mesh panels on the back were pretty, and the larger size gave me the shift look I wanted. The 4 fit me on top, but hugged my hips and made the overall fit awkward. I was concerned about the dress not being fancy enough for cocktail attire when I ordered it, but it was entirely appropriate for the party I attended. I definitely recommend sizing up as a backup if you want a looser look, like the model in the photos, unless you have no curves at all.

Simple enough but still cute and fun

I loved this dress! It was so comfortable and easy to wear (as long as you have a backless or sticky bra of some sort). I rented it for a quick weekend trip to Vegas. I ended up wearing a different dress with sleeves because it was a little chilly at night, but I would definitely rent this dress again for another event. Other reviews mentioned it being tight in the hips, so I rented a size up as my backup, but it was all around way too big.

Gorgeous mesh detailing, but tight through hips!

The material is much thinner than expected and did not fit like a shift as depicted in the photo. It is cut more straight and narrow through the hip, and ultimately did not work for me so I chose to wear another dress. Would size up next time.

This dress definitely runs small. While the picture shows that it is meant to be a baggier dress, it is very small and fitted on the bottom. I ordered up a size and it still was a horrible fit.

I like fishnet as much as the next person. Possibly more. And yet.

I was (foolishly, probably) surprised by the extent of the fishnet-ness under the arms and along the back of this dress. It couldn't work for me for a work event; it was a teenie bit too edgy for that a more than a little too narrow for my hips, regrettably. But so close! It wish it could have been the right kind of wrong.

Super cute but runs small

I rented this dress for back up to wear to a wedding. After reading reviews that it ran small, I ordered a size 4 instead of my usual size 2 in dresses. It was still pretty tight around my bottom half that I probably needed a size 6! Luckily it's black so you couldn't really tell how tight it was if I did need to wear it. Would rent again in a bigger size.

Cute dress, fits a bit tight through around hips.

Really cute dress. The mesh in the back makes it more casual. The top is really flattering, sexy but not super revealing. However, if you are on the curvier side it fits a bit strange. I found it to fit appropriately through the bust but be loose through the waist and then tight across my thighs and butt. However, because it is black the issues in fit weren't super noticeable and it was still quite flattering.

Fun look but not a great fit

I read some of the comments/saw it ran small, so I ordered a size up (I'm normally a 4) and even that was WAY too tight in the hips. It's just a poor fit overall.

Cute but not my favorite

This was a pretty dress, but I didn't end up wearing it. I'm typically a 4, sometimes a 6. This one was tight in the hip area. I probably could have worn it, but I picked something else that was more flattering. Would possibly try again in a 6 some time.

Chic, comfortable dress!

I'm usually between a 2 and a 4 (2 in most dresses) and definitely a 4 in this dress. Like most people said, it's deceptively tight at the hips...and I'm basically straight as a ruler. Once I got used to the bit of tightness even in the 4 though it was super comfortable. The top is thick enough that you don't have to wear a bra. Perfect length for a party...I loved that I didn't have to keep pulling down at the hem. Absolutely loved the back! If you're between sizes I would size up but I wouldn't size all the way up because then the top would be too loose...unless maybe you've got a chest.

Great LBD

It was a fun little back dress with great mesh details in the back. Chest area has two layers. This was good since I did not wear a bra with it. It's a pretty standard looking shift dress so good to mix it up with jewelry and heels.

GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE

Because of UPS problems, I didn't get my dress on time, but I called the RTR helpline and the woman who assisted me was AMAZING! Without further questions or explanations needed, she overnighted me the same dress in time for a wedding in a completely different city. Sadly, after everything, the dress was too big for my petite figure. Loved the details though. Thank you so much RTR for being so helpful!
