I really loved this dress. I am 5'3 so the slit went up very high but it looked and was very comfortable. I received a lot of compliments on this dress.

This dress was perfect for the black tie wedding I attended this summer.
Very bump-friendly! When I wore this dress I was 30 weeks pregnant with twins. It stretched over my bump and honestly made me feel like a hot mama! I loved wearing it and received many compliments. I'm typically a size 0/2 and I wrote a 4R to accommodate my bump.

Wore this for a night out in NYC. The dress is so flattering and the open back in gorgeous. Classy yet somehow not too revealing.

I was named sweetheart of a fraternity and couldnt have asked for a better dress to be recognized in
It fit beautifully! I have a larger backside and it framed me perfectly. The slit was in just the right place,it has just the right amount of sass for a formal event!

Good fit and length.
I was not quite a month post baby, so I definitely used spanx to suck in my belly. It shows some major side boob so I used double sided tape, then just went with it. I got lots of compliments and because it was black I felt like it was flattering. I'm 5'9 and at this point I probably weighed 154, bust 36B but I was breast feeding so probably a c-d. Tall, slender body type.

Show stopper!
This dress was great! I was only able to receive the 4P and was afraid it would be too short and small however it was a perfect fit and length even with a heel. I'm 5'4" and the dress was just off the floor with a 4 inch heel. I would recommend spanks as anything else I wore underneath you could see. Even though the top fit great and I could have gone without a bra I opted for a backless bra to prevent the top from moving while I danced. I also used fashion tape to hold everything in place. Once I was in it I didn't want to take it off! I felt sexy and confident! I highly recommend this dress.

Classic, Sexy, Felt Beautiful!
This dress was beautiful I felt amazing in it! Everyone gave me compliments the entire night. The dress was a little bit tight in the midsection, but I just was conscious of what I eat prior to the event. The big draw back was the top. I ended up having to tie it into a knot, because the top was extremely large. I'm a 32B and have a very small neck area, but i feel like only a DD could fit into the dress for how it's suppose to fit. Despite that I felt amazing and loved the look!

I really liked the dress! I ended up tying the top instead of using the snap because it hung very low. Overall very comfortable!

Sexy, classic backless dress
I wore this to a charity gala. Very sexy dress but a bit restricting and tight. Runs a bit small so I went with the larger size. Statement earrings are a must with this one!

LOVE
Ordered the 2P and the 6P because it was all they had left for the date that I needed the dress. Went with the 6 because the 2 was too short. A 4R would've probably worked better but the 6 worked just fine!! loved this dress - very flattering

Not your average black dress
Was a substitute for my backup--which wasn't available after all--but out of the 3 options I received (RTR has the best customer service!) including my first choice, this was by far the best. The lined crepe fabric feels very substantial and fitted even in the drapey halter area, so I was comfortable enough to go bra-less after pulling the halter strap a little tighter than designed. It's not really adjustable, but it has 2 snaps behind your neck, so I only used the last snap and hid the extra flap with my hair. Full disclosure--I do have implants, so a little tape on the sides would probably be advisable for those who don't to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions! The length was perfect for me--it just skimmed the floor without dragging. I'm 5'8" and wore the 2L with 5" heels. A+ for this dress!

Amazing Black Dress
I had read the other reviews that said that the dress ran a little small. I usually wear a 2 or 4 so I went with the 4L and 6L to be safe. I was initially going to wear the 6 but then realized it was too big. I wore the 4 and it was great! It was so flattering and I received SO many compliments. I am 5' 9" and the long hit the floor with flats so if you are tall and planning on wearing heels with this dress just keep that in mind. Overall, the picture does not do this dress justice, it is perfect!

Classy Black Dress
I ordered this dress in a 2R with a backup size of a 4R, since the fitting instructions said to order a size up. When it got here, I tried on the 2R and it was big. The sides were gaping and I was terrified of a nip slip.Dresses are never usually large in the bust area for me, so if you have a little bust size I'd definitely suggest going a size down. I called RTR and they sent the 0R overnight and got here the morning of the wedding. FANTASTIC customer service. I put on the new dress and it fit like a glove. The length was perfect with 4in heels and the dress was absolutely gorgeous. Simple, but elegant.

elegant & sexy without being too over the top.
i was looking for a dress to wear to a wedding, i wanted something simple and elegant but not too boring. this dress was exactly what i was looking for! with an open back and a slit up the leg it felt very rihanna in armani (grammys). it seems to fit true to size maybe a tad bit big and also seems to run very long, even with 3 1/2 inch heels the regular was still long in length. i am very small chested but still needed some body tape to secure the sides on the dress. bottom line is i highly recommend this dress! i think it could work for all body types, extremely flattering and not to mention i got compliments all night long. deffinetly not your average black dress! :)

Elegant, fun dress
This dress was wrong for me for so many reasons. Black usually makes me look washed out, I have tiny boobs and halter styles usually make my shoulders look like a linebacker's. Why did I pick this dress? For the fabulous leg slit, the draping of the top and the fact that it showed off my arms, directing attention away from the washout effect of the color. It was amazing. The draping in the front with the halter and the no-back style stayed in place - to my enormous surprise - and the slit came up quite high without flashing anyone. I was so comfortable all night long, even thought I ate a ton. I am usually between a 6 and an 8. I chose the 8 over the 6 because the fabric is quite tight across the hips but also the sides stayed in place on the 8 a lot more reliably; with the 6 I was worried about gaps. The draping in front was low enough to be sexy but again, there was no danger of a "wardrobe malfunction." If I had more occasions on which to wear it I would buy this dress! The style notes suggest Spanx, but I found that the cut of the dress prohibited any underwear at all. Instead, I opted for commando, and it was perfect.

The bust hung just right, gave the illusion of skin without actually showing anything scandalous. Fitted through the hip area, lays flat. Super comfortable fabric.

Amazing dress, amazing service. I couldn't be happier with my Rent the Runway experience!
The dress was the perfect length for 3 inch heels and fits true to size. The only issue was the halter strap was a little large but can be tied as opposed to snapped if you prefer to shorten it.

Stunning
If you have a formal affair, and you would like to have that elegant-simple-sexy look, this is the dress for you. You can really play up the accessories, which makes it seem more of a custom look. The dress is true to size. It fits pretty snugly across the hips and waist, but not uncomfortably so. I used a lot of double sided hollywood tape, in order to better secure it, but as the night went on, and the dancing continued, it became evident that it was a wise decision to have left the phone at home, and take the double sided tape ;) I received a great deal of compliments... "stunning" being the most favored :) This experience was my first one, with RTR. It MOST CERTAINLY will not be my last. Their customer service is amazing, and it is a truly well- built business. Thank you for aiding in the wonderful evening, I so enjoyed.

This dress was absolutely stunning. I felt beyond glamorous! Thank you Rent the Runway!
This dress fit like a glove. It was snug at the waist, but yet the fabric had enough give to still offer a flattering finish (even after lots of food and cocktails). The slit was fun. You could actually pull up the mid section a bit for a higher slit. Pulling it down if you wanted a more conservative look. My only issue was that I had to go bra-less. The 'tape on' cups still showed on the sides. Luckily the dress has two snaps to adjust halter top. I went with the tighter snap, otherwise there would have been a little 'peep show'. I wore this to the Golden Globes. A perfect dress for a more 'sexy' black tie event.

Walking into the room with the other guests and having every head turn my way. Amazing.
This dress fit amazing. I first applied double sided tape to my sides to keep my ta-tas from showing but after fussing with the tape for an hour after I arrived at the event, I decided to just remove the tape and hope for the best. All turned out well, no mishaps occurred. I feel like the dress has probably been worn enough times that is isn't as fitted up top as it was originally. So, the top fit more like a 6 or an 8 while the rest of the dress fit like a 4. The slit was amazing and showed JUST enough leg to be sexy without being trashy. I paired with teardrop earring and necklace and a diamond cuff. The simplicity of the dress was beautiful. I would rent this gown again without hesitation.

Every girl wants to look special on certain occasions. This dress does the trick, easy peasy.
I wore this at a company holiday party. I got so many compliments! The dress fits beautifully and comfortably, and - contrary to what I expected - the side opening isn't revealing at all. I could comfortably dance in this dress without being in the least inappropriate.

Ver elegant black dress that is comfortable, true to size, easy to move in, and fits well. The material was not cheap looking like some black dresses. Love this designer.

Classy and unique!
Rented this for a dinner in Beverly Hills, and I needed something formal but fun. This dress was amazing ... I got compliments on it all night long! I actually thought (for me) it ran a little tight in the hips, which is why I went with the 2R. However, the material of this dress is quite thick, so it's not clingy in any way. Be warned, though, if you're a little taller ... I'm only 5'3" and the slit on this dress was pretty high - hit about two-thirds of the way up my left thigh. Also, I was able to wear a backless Nu-Bra without any problems. I was going for a Rihanna circa 2012 Grammys look as well, so I went with a black and gold theme. Did loose waves in my hair, a dark smoky eye with lashes, and black and gold nails. Rented the Kenneth Jay Lane Deco Fab ring as well, though the necklace was mine. Paired everything with 4" black and gold cap toe pumps by Dolce Vita, and my trusty plain black clutch! This dress was amazing and so unique. I wouldn't recommend it for a super-conservative event, but I'll definitely be renting other dresses by this designer again. The quality of the dress itself was fantastic.

Fit like a glove and made me feel sexy!
I rented this for a party and the theme was Hollywood Couples and we were James Bond and Bond Girl, definitely felt as sexy as Bond Girls!! I just ordered the 2R and it was very true to size. It fit like a glove,the sides of the chest are a little bigger but nothing that double sided fabric tape couldn't fix!!! I could have worn the 0 for the chest part but it could have been small around my hips, so I am glad I went with the 2R. Definitely would recommend if you want a black dress but a sexy edge!

I hated this dress.
I wore this for a winter ball and I absolutely hated it. I ordered the 2L and 4L (I'm 5'8 and I wore 4 inch heels) and the dress was too short. It was almost perfect length when I was barefoot. Since I have more of an athletic build, and not an hourglass, this dress did not hit me in the right places. I tried to get on rtr to find a back up dress but they were all rented out. It's a very classy dress but not flattering at all.

Felt like Jessica Rabbit
I loved this dress! All night, people told me I looked like a Hollywood starlet wearing this dress -- very classy, old school charm. It looks a bit more risque than I felt wearing it, but that's probably because I knew everything was well-secured with double stick tape. Expect attention if you wear this dress!

one-of-a-kind dress; highly recommend if you want to stand out!
I ordered the 0R and 2R, but the 0R fit more snugly. This dress was definitely true to size and hugged all the right places (I have no curves, but this dress somehow made it seem like I did!). The material was substantial enough to not feel weird about not wearing a bra (even if you're large-chested like I am--DD)...I wore a NuBra, but i don't even think that was necessary since there's no way to know you aren't wearing anything because of the material. I did use fashion tape on one side though because of slight side-boobage. This dress is very sexy, thanks to it being backless and the slit! The slit is pretty high--it goes up to the upper thigh, so be mindful that when you walk or sit, your left leg will be on full display. I received many compliments on the dress and felt great in it. It was very long; I had it temporarily hemmed and wore 4-inch heels, but still kept stepping on it!

Very sexy!
Probably a little inappropriate for a wedding depending on your body type. I found it to be a little big in some areas and if you have any curve you will need to tape/pin it in certain areas to avoid any mishaps. I didn't end up wearing it due to the fact that it was a bit big for me.

The dress was perfect for a formal event. Fun to wear.
The top is a bit loose-fitting so the 0 size was better than the 2.....the zero fit perfectly but the 2 would billow forward if I leaned over. The fabric is great, no bra needed, the low back and leg were fun and I definitely felt elegant and confident in this dress. Length was perfect to the floor in my heels but would definitely go to the regular if any shorter than 5'6"

Beautiful dress for low key mood
Why this title? Usually I wear brightly colored dresses that demand attention. I did not receive as many compliments on this dress, not so much because of the style or fit, but more because it is yet another long black dress. I loved the slit in the leg and always love low backs, so if you don't want to yell "look at me" but you want to make a classy elegant statement, this is your dress.

Gorgeous dress - a little high maintenance with the slit, but worth it!
I felt great in this dress - it's sexy and elegant without being too revealing. You will have to be on watch for the night when you sit down...you basically have to wrap the bottom of dress around your legs unless you want to look very exposed. It may have been a tough too sexy for a wedding but it was fun and got lots of compliments on it. I'm usually an 8 but wore a 10 so that the slit didn't go up as high. Both sizes fit though.

UNBELIEVABLE! This dress will be my go to rental for any formal event I have. Felt like a movie star
The fit is incredible, especially for petite ladies since you can bunch up the middle. Slit is higher than you expect, but looks great. Overall, best dress I have ever worn.
