I got compliments all night, and loved explaining RTR to everyone that asked!
I rented this in a 10 and 12, reading that the dress ran large. I didn't think I'd actually fit in a 10, and I was right. The 12 was perfect, and I'm 5'7 so the dress wasn't too long as others have reviewed. The earrings matched perfectly as well. I got compliment after compliment about how amazing the dress was, even from people I didn't know at the reception.
I drove myself to the reception and I could sit in it just fine, and it was fine to sit in (and dance in) the whole night. I didn't get overly hot like some people mentioned, but toward the end of the night, the sequins around the neck were poking me, and I found myself trying to move the dress away from my neck just a little, but it wasn't like that the whole night, so don't let it deter you. I also wore Spanx underneath.
Seriously, if you want to sparkle and stand out, rent this dress! There was less gold than in the pictures, but just enough so the dress didn't look all black. I would rent this again for the right occasion.
