Nice dress

I ended up not choosing this dress because it was sent in place of another dress I chose and did not ship in time for my event. I tried it on once I received it and it was beautiful- very fitted through the entire dress but seems like it would be comfortable since the material is stretchy.

Amazing dress! As a stay at home mom hard to feel fancy.. Or have the time to do so! Perfect.

This dress is prefect if you want to feel sexy but it's not that warm out! Material is thick and warm. I didn't wear any undergarments because you would definitely see the lines. It was a bit longer than I anticipated which made me nervous but it ended up being perfect. I'm 5'6 and it hit the perfect spot... It could definitely be to your ankle or longer if shorter. Very form fitting. It's perfect to feel sexy but not exposed. Would definitely order again!

It fits like a glove. Long and lean and elegant! And somehow, still so comfortable.

Fits like a glove

I loved this dress!!! Fit like a dream. Comfortable and modern classic. Wore it with spanx and no bra. Foundation garments are a must as it does show every curve.

Stretchy, comfortable and flattering

Although this dress is very form fitting, the fabric and construction are incredibly stretchy and flattering. The length is playful and a good opportunity to show off some fun shoes. Also great because you can wear a normal bra.

Great formal dress for shorter gals

I rented this dress for a black tie fundraiser at the Central Park zoo. It fit like a glove but the thick fabric didn't show off too many bulges and the wavy texture made it more interesting than a simple black dress. I'm 5'3" and the ruffle came right to my ankle so it's definitely a good option for a floor-length gown for the shorter girls out there. The only drawback was the placement of the zipper on the side which made kind of a weird bump.

Very conservative

This dress hugged your body in all the right places, but it was too conservative for me. It was too long and came up too high. It is definitely a more mature dress.

This is an amazing dress. It's stretchy and comfy but SO chic. You will love this stress with a fun earring and funky shoes.

Awesome wedding dress

Very classic, stylish dress. It is very modern and fits like a glove. I wore spanx underneath because it is very tight.

Vavoom!

Usually a large gives me some eating room; this did not allow for any blot! However, from the front, the wavy lines make for a forgiving silhouette. My cousin had to wipe some road dust off the back and commented on the great fabric. Don't be scared by the mermaid like effect it does not impair movement, or dancing!

Perfect dress for a perfect evening!

I loved the fit of this dress. It hugs your curves like an Hervé, although the material used is classier than bandage. I received many compliments and felt that the dress was more than perfect for the occasion! #Perfect #Gala #BlackDress #OpeningCeremony

Like a glove!

Compliments galore! Loved this dress! I wore it as a bridesmaid dress. Fit perfectly, just the right amount of stretch to fit in all my curves. The fabric was thinner than I expected but in a good, comfortable way--not sheer at all. It hit me just below mid-shin, and I'm rather tall, so a shorter person might want to shy away from this one if you're looking for a true midi length. Would definitely rent again and would even consider buying it.

Classy and unique dress!

I rented a large because the medium was unavailable for my date. If I rented again I would definitely make sure the smaller size was available. I found that the size difference affected me in the torso and the armholes. The seam that goes around the waist was too long (I don't consider myself having a short torso to begin with) and there was just a lot of fabric in that area. I ended up just pulling up the top toward my shoulders but then had to watch that my bra didn't show with the larger armholes and the space there. The zipper does pucker as other reviewers have said. The dress was comfortable, though, and I got compliments on it. Would definitely rent again for a fallback LBD for a more dressy event. But definitely get a backup size!

This was my first Rent the Runway experience and I couldn't be happier! The dress fit great, comfortable fabric but still held everything in :) I received a lot of compliments on the dress at the wedding.

Great dress

This dress was as comfortable and it was stylish and sexy. Very forgiving material and compliments the body extra good. I thought the arm and nick line looked a bit on the cheap side, but on a whole the dress prefect. Would recommend renting.

So comfortable!

This dress hugs your every curve! I'm 5'4 and felt it was longer than what I expected but I wore 4 inch heels and thought it worked. You can wear a regular bra which is always a bonus. I received tons compliments! ....did I say it was comfortable? :)

Comfortable & fashionable

This was a backup dress that RTR overnighted when my first dress didn't work (best customer service ever)...I was surprised at how perfect this dress was for a formal wedding in an art gallery! It can easily be dressed up or down for an occasion. It's incredibly comfortable but I still got tons of compliments. Only downsides were that the zipper on the dress I wore tended to bunch funny at times and it's a very warm dress (though that was nice for the winter wedding in MO).

Elegant, sophisticated and sexy

This dress was everything I hoped for! It was form fitting yet elegant showing off all my curves. Plus the material had folds in a wave pattern that was simple but added detail to make the dress stand out. At 5' 10" the dress was just the right length with the tulip bottom ending at middle calf.

This dress was one of my favorite rentals thus far! So easy & flattering and formal enough for a black tie optional event. The material is extremely stretchy and really hugs your curves. Love the flare at the bottom as well ! Definitely recommended this dress!

Conservative yet sexy for a black tie optional formal work party. Loved the length and feel - very comfortable and sleek design. Easy to pair with any pop of color - I chose red shoes and pearls for holiday.

Unique and comfortable!

I'm an event planner and needed a black dress that would allow me to move around easily while still being stylish. This dress was perfect. It had some simple details in the fabric that were unique and the mermaid bottom made the dress stand out just enough. The dress ended up being longer than expected, hitting about 6 inches above my ankles. It fit true to size, but also had some nice stretch in the fabric if a little more room is needed.

Soooo many compliments!

This dress is amazing, I never wanted to take it off! It's forgiving in all the right places and is really comfortable. I wore it to a work event and kept my accessories simple, it could easily be glammed up for a big event. I'm 5'8" and loved the length.. Will rent again!

Comfortable, lift weight and sophisticated

I rented this to officiate my best friend's wedding. I am nursing so bustier than normal and wanted to make sure the girls were covered. Warning to my large chested friends, you may encounter some significant side boob. Also, the dress puckers oddly on the side near the zipper. I have a short torso, so perhaps that's why it did this to me. All in all, gorgeous dress. Hugged my curves perfectly, yet was very slimming.

Dress was gorgeous! I got compliments all night. The flirty end was fantastic. And ribbed fabric super forgiving. True to size. I went with the medium because of my bust size and height but the small would have worked also.

This dress is amazing!

This was my first RTR experience. I was nervous because it was a big night and I was unsure of how it would fit. I was so happy when I put the first dress on! It fit like it was made for me. This is probably my absolute most favorite dress I have ever worn! The texture and the sheen of the dress made it look so sexy, but also very classy. It had a little bit of stretch so it hugged in all the right places, but the material was thick enough that you can wear a regular bra and panties and not worry about panty lines showing. Really, I could not be happier with this experience!

Great for a black tie wedding

Tight dress but pretty forgiving and incredibly comfortable. I'm tall so the length was great with heels. Easy to move in and always a plus being able to wear a normal bra. The texture adds a unique touch to an otherwise very classic black dress. Dress came in great condition so no cons with my experience.

curvaceous and beautiful

Many pros .... my favorite is the material. It hugs in all the right places, complimenting and comfortable. One con is that it kept rising. It's not just once or twice but the entire time. It got so annoying. I won't rent it again because of that otherwise I would have again and again and again. It's not because of my body style. It fit like a glove. The material itself is the kind that's like a rubber band almost jersey and so it just rises and rises. Wish I had a pic but I don't.

Definitely hugs the body but a comfortable fit. I'm 4'11'' so the dress was more ankle length on me which was perfect! The texture of the material helps camouflage imperfections. Lol

I didn't end up wearing this dress, as I rented. two and chose the other. This was actually very cute and form fitting, I just preferred the other. I probably won't rent this one again.

Loved this dress for work party!

I loved this dress! It fit snug, but still had enough give for walking which is crucial in a midi mermaid style. I wanted to pair it with a leather jacket ( I hate my arms), but it ended up being too boxy and heavy. I'll definitely rent again.

I received so many compliments on this dress. Felt absolutely beautiful!

Body conscious dress. Fitted and flirty. The fabric of this dress is heavier but that's a positive. It helps give shape so the dress hugs all the right places without stretching as the night goes on.

Great dress for a work event

I rented this for a black tie event the nonprofit I work for was hosting. We were required to wear black (which I find really boring) and with the ruffles and fun texture, this dress at least had a little something different. It was perfect for all the running around I had to do; I was able to wear a regular bra and felt comfortable the whole night. The only thing that bothered me was that the zipper was on the side of the dress, rather than the back, so the inevitable buckling that happens along the zipper line disrupted the smooth line of the waist- I'm sure it's something only I noticed but I felt the need to double check that the dress was pulled down snug on that side before any pictures.
