Love this neckline

Rented for a black tie optional wedding, and it was perfect. I've tried four different Black Halo gowns, and each one fit differently. The material is a thick satin that has some stretch. Even with the off the shoulder neckline, it stayed up and was comfortable. I could eat and dance. The slit is no joke, though. Careful! I'm 5'3" and wore 3.75" heels and it did drag some but wasn't unmanageable. I think hem tape would have shown due to how open the slit is, but it didn't seem to be an issue. Loved this and would recommend. I'm an XS/SP in tops but have broad shoulders, so I think the 4 was TTS but I did size up from street clothes. The off the shoulder neckline with the slight fold was just a little different and so flattering!

I felt great all night in this dress!

This dress is great. It is a thicker material that can help hide flaws. The off the shoulder look was great, the sleeves twisted which was a nice detail and the slit in the front added a nice touch and let you see some leg! I felt totally comfortable!

So many compliments! This dress fit so well and made me feel so pretty and it was easy to dance in!

So flattering! The fabric is thick and forgiving and fits beautifully. The slit is more of a wrap, so you don't have to worry about showing off too much!

Almost wore this but it was just a bit too big. will rent in a smaller size in the future

This dress didnt have any reviews, so I was hesitant to rent, but I ended up loving it. The material is a bit thicker and didnt wrinkle easily. It was a bit big on me (my weight has been fluctuating, so it was more of a "me" issue than dress sizing. Really pretty navy. Would recommend.

Perfect Dress

This dress was simply gorgeous. This was my back up style but I will definitely rent this for a future event. It was perfect. True to size and very elegant. I am 5'8 and about 150lbs so an 8 long was perfect

Classic and elegant dress.

Fit perfectly, however had to go with shorter heels. I'm 5'3 and the regular was too short for 4inch heels, had to go with 2'inch, so if you are taller go with the long dress.

This dress is stunning! Really accentuates a curvy body. Truly a classic look!

The slit in the leg is a little high but other than that it fit perfectly! I'm 5'4 and was wearing maybe 3 inch heels and the dress didn't drag on the ground. I usually have to get things hemmed but this fit like a glove. It's very comfortable material.

Felt like a million bucks!

The dress is even more beautiful in person! Fit like a glove and was the perfect length. A beautiful navy color and the fabric was a nice weight and had stretch. I got a ton of compliments all night, was comfortable and could dance with ease. I would definitely rent again.

Good luck trying to keep your boobs and crotch covered in this dress!

The material is thick and stretchy, which makes it comfy, but the thickness makes it heavy; I was pulling this up all night. Had to wear three padded strapless bras just to keep it up, and even then I was tugging at it all night. I have a small chest but with all the bras I was at least a C cup, and the fact that that didn't cut it seems crazy. Also: this is a beautiful dress, and the cut makes it look really classy -- but only when you're walking. Literally any other activity in this dress is impaired: dancing makes it bounce down your body, the slit creates great opportunity for flashing one's vagina while doing the twist, and even sitting through the ceremony was a chore because the slit hung open all the way to my inner thigh, was worse if I crossed my legs, and had to be held shut with one hand the whole service - and even then it gapped at the top because there wasn't enough fabric! I would say that this might work for a red carpet event, but not for a wedding, which is what I got it for. Three stars only because it's beautiful and comfy, and because it might work really well if you have big, big boobs.

The dress was perfect and very flattering! Perfect black tie wedding dress! Elegant yet sexy.

I loved the dress and it fit great! True to size and very comfortable. Has a good stretch to it. I did not receive my items on time though, they were a day late being delivered. I also never received the clutch I ordered. Rent the runway has always been my go to for upscale events but I was disappointed this time around.

Amazing customer service!!!

This dress was a hesitant choice at first. Allie suggested I try it on and I was extremely hesitant. I am a curvy woman with hips and I didn't think it would look nice. Boy was I wrong. I felt amazing immediately and it accentuated my curves without bringing unnecessary attention to my hips. I felt and looked elegant. I received numerous compliments throughout the night. I was the belle of the ball

Perfect Formal Dress

I LOVED this dress. I wore it for a black tie wedding and it was perfect. It is a heavy material and looks expensive. It was super easy to move around and dance in. The slit is not too high and there is enough material in the front to be modest. Your legs will show, which was great to show off my sparkly shoes. I would 100% recommend renting this dress! It fits true to size.

Amazing material

This was an amazing dress that I really wish I could wear! I took a risk and ordered a larger size than I normally wear because it was the only size left (I typically wear a 4R). The material is thick and luxurious, almost feels like a scuba material. Very soft and flattering fit. I will definitely rent again in the future in the right size!

Gorgeous dress with flattering silhouette

I rented the 2L and 4L and ended up going with the 2. (It seemed longer than the 4, but overall fit was better and I just used hem tape for the night.) The material is thick but has a bit of give. The 2 was more fitted through the hips which offered a more flattering silhouette. The dress stayed up well but I did find myself twisting the cap sleeves a few times. I'm also smaller up top and was able to get away with going bra-less.

Beautiful dress but runs a little large

Although the dress was slightly too large, it was very elegant and I got many complements on it. The material does stretch so I would order down a size if you want it to really hug your curves. For reference, 5'3" and 112lbs and a 32A

STUNNING!

I am 5'6 135 pounds and wore a size 4L. I attended a gala so this dress was perfect for the occasion. It fit perfect and I couldn't have been happier. I have rented from Rent the Runway many times before and my experience just keeps getting better & better every time!

This dress was absolutely stunning. I felt like like a queen for a night!!

The fabric is thick and forgiving and great for curves! The color is a true, rich navy. The neckline isn’t too low or too high, and the slit was very manageable (I’m not super tall.) I could have worn a lower heel without the dress hitting the floor, but opted for 3”. So taller ladies may want to get the Long. You’ll need a strapless bra.

Great fit very flattering.

I rented the 0R as the backup but went with the 2R. The arm holes on the 0 were a bit too snug. No problems dancing or sitting through dinner. A great dress I would rent again. I’m 5’4” and wore 3” heels.

I wasn't able to wear it. It was too long even with heels.

Beautiful dress with a flattering fit. I usually order a petite but it wasn't available so the dress was too long and I was unable to wear it.

Comfortable, classy, runs large

I ordered both the 6R and 4L. I'm 5'7", 135, 34DD w curves. I wore a glittery low wedge heel and the long was perfect, maybe even a tad too long. I usually wear a 4, although carrying a little extra holiday weight so wanted something a little forgiving. I wore the 4L, although could have maybe gone down a size if available. Dress was comfortable all night, and allowed for strapless bra and spanx (slit runs high up the leg though), although the cut in itself camouflages any trouble areas. I felt classy, although not sexy in this dress - even with the high slit. Depends on what you're hoping in a dress - I would definitely recommend and will always love this designer - great material and cut! Navy color was beautiful!

Gorgeous dress

I returned without wearing. The dress fit beautifully from the waist up. I would have worn it had it not been for the bottom. The bottom fit but because I have larger hips, it caused the slit in the skirt to be very wide apart. It didn't sit like the slit in the picture. There was no wearing this dress with such a wide gap. If my hips/thighs were smaller, the bottom for the dress would have fallen properly and the dress would have been absolutely lovely.

This dress made me feel like a movie star.

Honestly I never felt more beautiful. The fit was amazing - i'm 5'3 and the Regular length was perfect with heels. I also am big chested (DDD 36) and this made them look great in a flattering, classy way. I would rent this dress again. Thick material is forgiving on thick, curvy girls like myself

Flattering

This dress was my backup. I chose not to wear it because it didn't "pop" enough for our Mardi Gras Ball that we were attending. Mid-section is forgiving. Love the off-shoulder detail. If only it came in a different color. Overall: gorgeous gown.

The BEST dress!!!

I really cannot overstate what a great dress this is. I wore it to a black tie fundraiser. It's not flashy, but it certainly got some attention. I received so many compliments. It is so flattering and so comfortable! The fabric is very thick and stretchy. It's form-fitting, but not clingy. No spanx needed! Also, that little ruffle in the front falls right where I usually need a little forgiveness. I didn't feel like I spent the evening sucking in. It was perfect for the occasion. I tried the 2 first and felt like it fit, but tried the 0 just to be sure. The smaller size worked better for me because it made the shoulders more secure. LOVED this dress!

This was ordered for a black tie fundraiser gala.

This dress was super flattering and comfortable. I never felt that it was accenting any of my "trouble spots." I would almost describe the fabric like a heavy weight Lycra with just the right amount of stretch- not too form fitting but stretchy enough to hug your curves. Would definitely order again for a formal/black tie event.
