Beautiful dress and very comfortable!
I wore a size 4R and it fit perfectly. I am usually a size 6 or 4.... I even had some room in the 4, so would say the dress runs a little bit on the bigger size. If you are in between sizes, I would go for the smaller of the two. Would rent again!

Gorgeous draping; Beautiful Fit
I was a little apprehensive to rent this dress, as no one else had written a review for it -- but I decided to go for it anyway. I am so glad I did! This dress was gorgeous and very sexy. The fabric has a little bit of stretch to it, which was great because "hello hips and bum!!" The major detailing of this dress was of course the draping-- it revealed a bit of leg (from mid-thigh down to your feet). It's kind of hard to picture how the dress goes based on the photos along, but think of it like a wrap dress-- it's sort of like that. The waist-tie helped to pull it all together, by cinching in the waist. Overall, it was a beautiful dress. Don't be afraid to wear it if you are a little curvy.

I WAS SO SAD TO RETURN THIS DRESS
This dress is magic. Amazing. COMFORTABLE. There aren't enough positive adjectives. It's so different and elegant with the "turtle neck" type neck line. The material is thick and great quality. I wore this to a Black Tie Winter Gala so probably not the best for a summer event. It has a discreet but sexy slit in the front with almost a wrap dress style. It comes with a great sash to tie around your waist and show your curves! I had to use fashion tape to keep my strapless bra from showing underneath my armpits but that 2 second annoyance didn't change my opinion on the dress AT ALL. I received SO many compliments and was truly sad to return it. I would absolutely rent this again.

Elegant and sexy.
Wore this dress for a NYE gala. I ordered it in a 2R and 4R, however it actually runs a bit large. The 2 was a tad long (I'm 5'3") and large up top (34B) and around the waste. The sash helped me tie it tight enough to wear it for the evening and it was absolutely gorgeous despite being big. I felt very classic and sexy draped in black satin!

Classy!
I rented this for a New Year's Eve wedding. It's super comfortable and very classy! There's two materials which really help add some interest in the simplistic dress. The front slit is not too revealing but is very sexy! If you like a more simple, modest, modern style, rent this one. It does run a little larger- so your back-up size should be the smaller of your norm.

Elegant
I wore this dress to an opera, and it was perfect for it. It was long on me, but that's to be expected since I'm only 5 feet tall. I used fabric tape to temporarily hem it, and it worked great. It sorta reminds me or the dresses we wore for choir, only sexier.

Sophisticated and elegant dress
Received a lot of compliments throughout the night, my only complaint is that is was a bit too long (wore 3 inch heels). Other than that the dress fit amazing and was very flattering!

I'm very picky and RTR exceeded my expectations!
I choose this dress because I wanted something different and hide my stomach area. I was very happy with my selection and got a lot of compliments and people wanting to know where I got my dress. I'm 5'3 and 143lbs. Pretty thick all over. I wore the highest heels I could 4 1/2 inches. When you walk the slit separates so there is no problem with the dress being too long but I would say it touched the floor when standing. The 6 fit good but the 4 was perfect. I am usually a 4 or a 6. Very beautiful and classy in person, the picture does not do it justice.

Elegant and forgiving gown.
I liked this dress in theory. The draping, belt, and front slit are all nice details. In the end though I prefer a dress that gives me more of figure. If you're not tall and skinny or don't have much in the hips/booty area, the front draping kind of overwhelms you.

Classic with a modern feel
I wore this for a formal event where I wanted a more traditional look without feeling boring, and this was just right. This was a back-up dress I swapped for a different, ill-fitting dress at a Rent the Runway store. I'm not sure I would have picked this one from a photo on the website or even from it hanging on the hangar, but once on it just fits so nicely - it is a really great dress. The interesting drape, slit and tie in the back make it interesting and elegant.

NYE black tie wedding - need I say more?
I don't have a great photo of this, but I felt so comfortable and elegant in this dress! I wore this to a black tie wedding on NYE. This was my first RTR , and I usually go back and forth between a 2 and 4 in other stores, and the 2 fit great. The only concern is you may need someone to help tie the bow in the back!

Best. Dress. Ever.
This dress was perfect. So comfortable and sheik. I got so many compliments on this dress all night long. It does tie at the waist so it does show off your shape. Id rent this dress over and over again.

Elegant, sexy, yet forgiving
This dress is fitted in the back; sexy, yet forgiving in the front... you don't have to worry about how much you can eat before you get a tummy bulge. Incredibly comfortable & elegant.

Very comfortable and flattering dress. Perfect for a long night of dancing and celebrating.
If your upper body is small, size down.

Very classy, beyond you average black dress
Great fit. It's hard to tell in the picture but it is firm fitted on one side with a high mechanism drape on the other. High slut when walking for just the right amount of sexy.

The dress was comfortable, flattering and felt so glamorous.
It definitely fits long, which was perfect for me. I'm 5'10 and the 10L was floor length with 3 inch heels. The draping and texture of the fabric are so flattering it was impossible to feel anything but glamorous in this dress!

Unique, comfortable and flattering
I can't wait to wear this again. It was true to size- I have very large breasts and was able to wear this comfortably. It was flattering in that the dress has a belt around the waist to give you shape but the satin overlay keeps you from feeling exposed. The cut of the back prevents you from wearing a regular bra- a racer back or X back bra is best.

My first RTR experience was perfect!
Our attendance at the event was a bit last minute leaving me with very little time to find a dress. RTR was my savior! The dress (overnighted) arrived on time and was in beautiful condition. I ordered the 4R as my primary and the 6L as my backup. The 4R was perfect in the body but a bit big in the upper back. I noticed a bit of gaping in the back against my shoulder blades when I first zipped it up. Once I tied the belt though I was able to just pull the material down a bit under the belt and that held it so the back laid nice and flat. The satin panel that lays over the front gives a unique detail but falls completely to the side when you sit. Makes for interesting maneuvering getting out of a low car! I wore 2-3" heels and the dress was under an inch off the ground. All that said, the dress was amazing and I felt comfortable and beautiful all night! I will absolutely rent again!

My husband didn't like it but I did and I got lots of compliments.
Easy to fit - very forgiving style. The belt posed a bit of a conundrum - the professional photo does not display a belt at all, so I assume it was tied in the back? I couldn't make that work, I could only figure out how to tie it to the side or the front. I ended up with it tied to the side and I thought it looked wonderful. Husband and I often disagree so I'm not surprised he didn't like it too much, I thought it was beautiful, elegant, and a little bit sexy (the leg opening). You cannot wear a regular bra - I am small on top so did not wear a bra at all, figuring the front flappy thing would have me covered. I think it worked. The regular is pretty long, significantly high heels are required.
