Old school meets new school
Very classic gorgeous dress. True to size. Floated off my body but fit all the right places. Lot the pockets and matched it with an Oscar de la renta necklace to add some color for a destination wedding. Comfortable. Sassy. Classic style. Major compliments

Beautiful dress. Definitely low cut and requires a different bra. I'd definitely wear it again!
Would probably fit best on someone taller, with a longer torso.

Classy LBD
Low cut front and back but you can still (carefully) wear a real bra. Understated shimmer. Pleated skirt is flattering. Cute LBD.

It was my first time using this site and the dresses came on time and renting was amazing!
This dress looked great for my event and if you have boobs this is a great dress to show the girls off!! :-) It ran true to size and "fits like a glove" as many others have said. I wish I got to keep this dress!

Better in person than on the model!
This looks simple in the picture, but it's really beautiful in person. The fabric has an elegant sheen, and I loved how the straps got super skinny at the top (not really shown in model pic). Don't get this if you're afraid of cleavage, though! I loved that it was a super deep-V, it was really flattering and balanced well with a longer hemline. I would definitely order this again, great for many occasions.

1st time using RTR! Love the service, LOVED this dress!!
Felt the dress runs big, usually a 2, ended up wearing the 0. It was snug in the bust and I am like grape on board so keep that in mind for sizing. Strapless bra was fine, no tape needed. Length was perfect, great for dancing and the best part is it's fuller in the stomach area so you can eat!! Received many compliments, great experience and will definitely use and recommend RTR!

I wore this to a Halloween party as a day of the dead skeleton.
This dress felt great, the material was thick & structured with excellent dart details in the top, but flowy & poofy in the skirt, which was fun for dancing. I loved the feel of it & am a big Zac Posen fan. You can expect excellent quality & a comfy fit too!

Great silhouette for a classic LBD
I typically wear a size 6 dress, but with the flared skirt, the 4 fit perfectly. I had the same experience in another Zac Posen. Love this LBD, but without adding some accessories it could be a little on the boring side. The straps on the dress I received were starting to show some wear. I didn't end up wearing the dress as it was my backup to a jumpsuit. But I wouldn't have any issues going with this if the jumpsuit hadn't worked.

Cute, fun, classic and sexy.
This was the perfect dress to wear as a bridesmaid in my friends wedding. It's got a nice classic cut, but the low V and mid-thigh length also feels very sexy and fun. I paired with deep plum pumps and some fun rhinestone earrings. Runs true to size. Definitely better for smaller chest sizes due to the deep V, but if you got em flaunt em.

Very beautiful dress, runs a little small in the chest area
I loved this dress, even though I ended up not wearing it. It is truly beautiful. It runs a little small in the chest area, and the fabric does not stretch much, so if you are in between size I would recommend sizing up.

HOT!
I usually wear a size 4 and the 4 did fit but the 2 was perfect; tight enough that I didn't have to wear a bra and girls were fully covered. Well, as much as this dress would allow them to be anyway. I loooooved this rental, wouldn't be surprised if I got it again. Wore it for my 21st birthday!

It fit very well! I am very short (5'2") and it was almost too long, but fell about 2 inches from my knee and I think it looked ok.

Fit like a glove
I usually order a 4 and 6 (because sometimes the bust is too tight). If you are blessed up top, this dress showcases the girls. The shine was subtle and nice for a night out. Definitely can get away with wearing this in a club or a formal event depending on accessories. I loved this dress!

Bachelorette Little Black Dress!
I loved this dress. The weight was great for a cool spring Colorado evening (complete with scarf and sweater). The back is a wee bit plungey, so I would suggest a low bra or no bra. I wore my regular bra and said screw anyone who is offended with the sight of the hooks. It fit great and felt great. And was great to dance in.

The fabric!
The 6 was a little tight so I wore the 8. In hindsight I wish I would have gone w the 6 because the spanx I wore underneath would have made it less tight fitting. I got tons of compliments! Would definitely wear again - fun to dance in too!

I loved this dress! I was extremely comfortable the entire night and received tons of compliments.
The dress was beautiful. The material was thick enough that I didn't have to wear a bra, which was great. I wore large earrings and no other jewelry.

More than cute little black dress.
I read the reviews and ordered a size down because I am not large chested, really glad I did because I ended up wearing the 4 because although the rest of the dress fit perfect the chest was way too loose. The fabric does not stretch at all so the dress was tight along my rib cage, but was still able to enjoy the night no problem, with lots of drinking and dancing. The dress was flattering and had a nice shine to it. Got lots of compliments all night long.

Great dress made easy!
This was a great dress! And a great first experience with RTR! The fabric was a little different than I thought it would be, but the fit was great. Pretty true to size. Would have liked to try a size two but I ordered up for my extra size instead of down. Great little black dress for date night!

Amazing fabric for a standout LBD!
I have strong shoulders and a very small chest, so I was nervous to see how the dress fit. It turned out amazing! The deep v cut worked and this dress was the perfect length for dancing in - I could swirl and jump all I wanted and it wouldn't show anything. I didn't wear a bra with this dress. Would definitely recommend and wear again!

Perfect Little Black Dress
Loved this LBD. Wore it out on a nice date for our anniversary and all I can is that it is the perfect balance of classic and sexy. I never have cleavage and this dress made my boobs look awesome. I wore a regular black push up bra with it and had no problems. The only (very slight) fit issue was that the straps we just a bit too long for me, but I have a pretty short torso so this isn't the first time I've encountered it. In the end it wasn't really a problem, the straps didn't slip if I pulled the skirt down a bit. The waist of the dress wasn't exactly at my natural waist as a result, but I don't think it was very noticeable.

Tons of compliments! Felt so classy!
This dress fit well & easy.. No bunching, twisting, or pulling. Everything stayed put, & covered. Made for a fun night of dancing. Perfect length.. Straps cover a normal bra, just had to tuck the bra down in the back, as there is a low back, but it stayed covered well. You could easily go bra less or strapless with this dress though. Such a classy & most importantly, carefree dress! My daughter wore this to a formal H.S. dance. I thought she looked adorable in it, & she felt amazing in it!! I want to also add, the customer service @ Rent The Runway was phenomenal! We won't soon forget this experience & will most definitely be repeat customers! We almost had a delivery mishap, but RTR stepped up & made things happen for us! Thank you so much for making my daughters night special! We are delighted with the dress & most impressed with the service!

RTR stylists really help find the most flattering styles. I always get so many compliments!
So pretty! The fabric is good quality...kind of stuff but that's what helps it keep it's shape all night. The top is structured enough so it kept me in place all night as I moved and danced around without having to use wardrobe tape. The cut is perfect so that I could eat and drink and not worry about it showing!

Love this dress!
This dress fits like a glove and is the perfect length. Wore it for an event in NYC for new years. I can wear up to a 6 sometimes but the 2 fit me perfectly. I was able to wear a regular bra with this. Love and would rent again.

Flirty, fun, but still classy
I absolutely loved this dress! It fit like a glove, especially the top half without a bra--but I'll be honest... my 34 DD's are not the ones with which I was originally blessed so I think I had an unfair advantage with that fit. Since the dress was for a party at a friend's home, I was able to tone down the cleavage a bit by tucking the girls in a bit more. The fit around the ribcage was snug, but it made for a gorgeous silhouette with a fuller flirty bottom. Not having to wear a bra with this dress made for such a comfortable night. I got so many compliments on how gorgeous it was... and a few comments from some other women about how amazing the girls looked.

Sexy Halloween
I wore this dress to a Halloween party. I dressed as a cop. I wore it with a police hat, low whistle necklace, and knee high boots . It is VERY low cut as you can see in the pic. The straps fall a bit, but this could have been solved by wearing the smaller size. The 8 fit perfectly; however, I knew I would be dancing and eating so I wore the 10. I would wear this dress again.

Great dress. Fun, but not a showstopper
I really liked this dress a lot. I felt great in it. The length was not too short (I'm 5'6) and the waist was flattering, although I added a skinny belt to the ensemble. I will say, however, you will blend right in to a sea of cocktail dresses in this dress - so don't wear this one if you're hoping to be the belle of the ball. Pointers: I read in a lot of reviews that people wore a standard bra with this dress, and I did too, but the very top of the straps is very thin, so unless you have a black bra with thin straps, I'd go strapless. Also, I have very small breasts, and the dress was snug. This may not be a good dress for well-endowed ladies. Also, after a few hours I found the dress to be pretty itchy (not uncommon for sparkly dresses) but if you have sensitive skin like me, keep it in mind.

Classic and cool
SUCH a great dress; it fit beautifully and the fabric was stunning in person. I got tons of compliments and wasn't afraid to go to town on some pasta before going out due to the flowey skirt. The back was too low cut for me to wear a bra, but that wasn't an issue for me. I had a great time at my last homecoming dance largely in-part to this comfortable, classic, and cool dress. Thank you so much RTR!

Great Silhouette and Fabric!
It may run a bit big, seeing as how only the bodice top portion is actually fitted I went with the smaller of my two sizes, fashion tape isn't totally nessicary if you have a bigger chest. The waistline of my dress was a little wonky (probably from wear), but I just belted it and went on with life. I'm not a fan of my arms so I paired it with a dance shrug which helped with warmth for the outdoor October wedding. Looked great, I wish I could have kept this dress!!

Date Night with the boyfriend, and he wanted to go parade me around town.
This was my second time ordering the dress. First time I ordered the 10, thinking I hadn't gained that much weight, and the 10 failed. The 12 worked perfectly. A few tricks about this dress: If you don't wear a bra, you will need fashion tape to keep the top up. It travels off your shoulders otherwise. You can wear a strapless plunge bra, but that's the only kind. It has to be the plunge, regular strapless shows. The waist is exactly how it says, and that is the only part that is not loose, quite snug really, but not uncomfortably so. It is definitely low, so if that's not your thing, don't go there, or wear a camisole. Overall, the dress was fantastic, looked great, and super comfortable. Even got a picture with my boyfriend's black cat in the "black cat dress." Super cheesy, but his idea.

Perfect glam! Perfect price!
Great dress! It provided all the glam I needed without blowing the bank. I received a ton of comments through out the evening from friends as well as strangers. I paired the dress with my favorite pair of Brian Atwood, gold heels and awesome statement earrings; grabbed a simple nude purse and never missed a beat!
