I have never felt more beautiful. Everyone loved this dress. Amazing fit and sparkle!
I have 36DDD breasts so I had to pin the top closed but outside of that it fit perfectly. Fit at the waist, comfortable flow below. Danced freely. I had to hold the bottom up once I switched to flats.

Glamour!
I rented this dress for my engagement photos. I wanted something to compliment a checker taxi and add a little elegance. This dress was extremely comfortable and not heavy at all - considering it is fully sequined. The only drawback for me was that the natural shape and draping of the dress make a pear shaped body look extremely pear shaped. Other than that - the dress photographed beautifully.

I felt fabulous. It was my first time dressing up since giving birth to my son.
I had to get a bigger size because the zipper is hard to zip (not because the 12 was too tight but because it was a tough zipper). It fitted nicely.

The dress fit perfect! It is a very forgiving material and was incredibly comfortable. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to shine on a special night.

Comfortable But Non Forgiving
This dress is comfortable and the weight it not too bad for being completely sequined. The front is not as forgiving as a curvy girl would like. Shows every lump and bump. Can wear a bra with it though, and that is a plus.

I got a ton of compliments all night long! It was the perfect dress for my senior prom.
It fit really well from all over. It was about four inches too long, but this was easy to fix with some fashion tape. It was also a little looser around the bust area, since I elected to wear a light pushup bra, so I had to be a little careful when sitting down. This could also be fixed with fashion tape if need be. I also had to wear my bra a little low because the back does have a pretty deep cut. I loved the dress, and it fit well, especially as someone who has a slightly larger bust and is straight everywhere else.

Many many compliments in the dress, very fitting for a black tie event!
The fit was very close between the 4R and 6R, but I went with the 4R because I like the support of a bit of snug feel, length was FINE with 3" heels, which I was worried about since I'm 5'7" and did not order a long. I also loved that it was sexy but elegant. The dress sequins did pull at my hair; if I only could change one thing, it would have been to plan to wear my hair in an undo, but too late by the time I had it styled down, did I realize it got caught every now and again. This was my first rental and I will use RTR again, probably should have signed up for PRO.

The dress was stunning.. I received compliments all night long.
Fit was true to size. I probably should have ordered a regular but didn't want to have my heels out. I feared the dress/sequins would be scratchy but it wasn't. It fit perfectly and hid any insecurities.

This dress is AMAZING! Very comfortable and super flattering.
I wore this dress for a Formal Wedding and received a lot of wonderful compliments. I have no hips and this cut really gave me an "hour glass" figure, which I loved. To get into some size details, I say it runs big because I typically wear a 4 in all other clothing. The 2R fit perfectly though. I'm ~ 5' 4", weigh ~120-125. I had 2" heels, which I wish would have been a bit taller as the dress dragged a little. My only other watch out is that it was a little itchy under the arms as the night went on due to the sequins. Not terrible...i would still definitely recommend the dress.

Felt like a starlet. Beautiful dress!
The color & sequins really make this dress feel special. It fit just a bit large in the bust and was almost too long. But, it was nothing a push-up bra and 5 inch heels couldn't fix. The fabric has a little bit of stretch, so it was forgiving after a big meal and was easy to sit and move in. All around great, easy to wear dress that feels like a million bucks.

This gown was so elegant and flattering. It fit perfectly and made me feel amazing.
I am 5' 2" and needed 4" heels, but that made this 4R a perfect fit. I wore a regular bra underneath, which was a great perk. My *only* issue with this gown was that I was dancing a lot at a wedding, and the sequins at the arms rubbed and irritated my skin a bit. But at a non-dancing party, this gown would have been extremely comfortable.

I felt perfectly dressed for a very special occasion!
The dress fit beautifully in my regular size, was very comfortable both sitting and standing. The only comment I would make is that I'm 5'7" and ordered a regular because I wanted to wear flats if possible but it was too long for anything less than a 2" heel.

I attended a gala / work event, so I needed to be tasteful but glamorous - this dress fit the bill!
The dress was comfortable and fit beautifully -- although I'm busty (36G) and the neckline was a little too revealing, so I safety pinned the front area for more coverage. I got so many compliments on how awesome I looked and where I bought it!

First time using RTR it was AMAZING!
At first many of my friends were nervous about me getting my dress the day before Prom which made me worry even more. This was my first time using RTR and it went so much smoother than I cod ever imagine and the dress was stunning! I totally felt like a celebrity walking the red carpet and all the compliments also helped me feel extra special. Would recommend RTR and hope to be renting again soon!

Stunning dress, beautiful color
The color is stunning in person! I only ordered the 10R as a backup, and found the rib cage to be too small. I wore the 12R in their black version of this dress, but would have preferred to have worn the blue color to the formal wedding I attended. This dress is amazing for anyone with an hourglass figure!!

A Show Stopper Dress!
I ordered the dress for a wedding. I am 5 months pregnant and needed something with an empire waist. I did not wear this dress only because I realized I wouldn've been too dressed up! I definitley recommend this dress if you need it for an event that you want to be a stand out and stylish. I use to be a 4 before being pregnant and am now a 6/8 with a ample bosom! This dress accomdated my ample bosom (36D) and bump. Once my kid is born I want to find an event to showcase this dress!

Lovely, but not for me
I ordered this dress for a black tie wedding, but didn't end up wearing it. I have a slim, athletic build with narrow hips. The amount and direction of the pleating made me look enormous through the hips, and I thought the fit below the waist was a bit large. It's a lovely dress, but not for me. This was my first rent the runway experience, and I am so impressed by the service. They overnighted me another dress, in two sizes, which was perfect on me.

Glamorous Dress
Loved everything about it! I wore it for a NASA formal evening event and it was absolutely perfect! I wore the 8L with 1 inch heels and it did catch a little, but an 8R would have been too short! The weight of the dress made it hang nicely and never worried about it bunching in the wrong places!

This was my first RTR experience, and I must say...loved it! Wore the dress for a black tie wedding
This dress was classic & beautiful. I received so many compliments everywhere I went, church, hotel, street, wedding. The top of the dress was a little large, and I really needed to two sided tape or a safety pin or two to feel secure, but I made it through all the same, and my friend swore I wasn't flashing too much cleavage. You can wear it with a normal bra (unless loose on top--then it may show), but I didn't feel like I needed Spanxs or a shaper. The dress is rather heavy and a little hot..so I wouldn't wear it outdoors if it's warm, but I still boogied and I didn't get any under arm sequin scrapes from it. The color is gorgeous, I felt so old school glam. The only real negative about this dress is the zipper is very difficult to get up. It's a matter of the fabric, and if I hadn't had a friend to help me in and out of this number, I wouldn't have been able to wear it. Only rent if you have technical support, but you'll feel like a million bucks!

The dress was truly stunning.
I think it was a little boxy at the shoulders, but that could easily be because I'm not exactly busty. The length was perfect, and the material was the perfect amount of thickness. I was worried the sequins may weigh me down too much, but it was just right.

Heavy Fabric
I rented this for a formal wedding in July as my back up dress. I didn't wear it. I love the sparkles, however the fabric is very heavy. Also I could have probably had the regular length.. my heels I would have worn were 4 inches and I still felt like the length was too long. Also, the size 4L was a teeny bit tight with the zipper being tough to get up. I wouldn't complete write this dress off, but I don't think this dress was the best pick for me. I feel like it made me seem a lot older than I was.

The dress fit so well and really gives a great waist line. If you are smaller in the chest like I am, it's a little big so you should go down a size. I revived so many compliments and felt great all night!!

Had a Blast at (an) Oscar Party!
This dress is incredibly comfortable, and it stretches a little bit so it is very forgiving. It is pretty long, even with high heels, and the sequins can chafe your arms somewhat--although it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it might be considering it's a dress made out of sequins. I also wore my regular bra (my regular bras are a little deeper-cut than most bras however). It fit really well, and I thought the cut flattered my body type. I really loved wearing it, strange as it sounds it was actually quite fun to wear.

This dress was beyond incredible. I felt like a queen and I was so sad to return it!
The dress was perfect. The fit was spot on, like it was made just for me. The length was a bit long but not enough to spend the time using hem tape, I just held it up when I walked. I wore 2 inch heels which helped but the length really was fne. The zipper was a bit difficult to get up where all the seams meet in the back but it went up with a little effort. The bust was a little low for me so I just taped it up and it was fine all night. The color was beautiful, the dress itself was in great shape and RTR was fabulous to work with. I absolutely can not wait to rent another.

I got so many compliments!
The dress was perfect. I got a 10L and 12L, and both fit well. I went with the 10L in order to keep things locked in for the evening. There was plenty of space for the girls, so I would suggest this for bustier ladies. The blue sequence was great - It wasn't too dark and provided a little bit of color.

I chose this dress primarily for the deep blue color (military affair)
This dress photographed SO beautifully and I felt very confident in it. Women approached me all night to compliment me. The length was perfect and I had about 3 inch heels on. The ONLY negative is that the zipper is definitely sticky and gets stuck a few times so be patient and take a deep breath. I was afraid to force it (in fear that it would break) but once I got it zipped, the feel and movement of the dress was fantastic. It's very comfortable. I was worried it might be heavy (it feels heavy off the hanger) but once on, it is fabulous! I think it is a great choice for all ages and body types.

I loved this dress!
This was my first choice dress for a black tie wedding. I am in love with this dress!! I'm 5'10" and the long option was perfect with heels. The material has some stretch to it so it's comfortable. It also flows well and I didn't feel self conscious after eating and had enough room to dance the night away. Will definitely be ordering this again, maybe in one of the other color options!

This was my first rental and it for sure won't be my last! The dress looked stunning and I received tons of compliments. The zipper was a little hard to zip; my boyfriend had to do it for me. I'm 5'8" so I got the long but I wish I had gotten the regular. Overall a fantastic experience!!

Glamour.
I am really hard to fit in dresses due to my frame, especial my broad back. So dresses that are small in the bust could never work for me. This dress was so gorgeous and perfect for my frame. It was a bit difficult to zipper mid back but that was due to the gathering of the dress. It really is a timeless dress and if you want to be one of the best dressed in the room I suggest you rent this beauty.

Beautiful eye catching dress.
This was the dress I didn't pick for our military ball. It was comfortable and fit great. I got the 14L and 12 L. The 14L was too short, I'm 5'8". But the 12L was just perfect if I wore flats. It was a hard choice because the dress was so beautiful but because I wanted to wear heels I wore another dress.

I'm always concerned about the cleavage, and although this dress loves to show off the ladies, it was very flattering. I had just had a baby, and it helped me not feel uncomfortable.

I wanted to sparkle, and this dress helped me do just that!
This dress is amazing. Ultra flattering. The sequins and midnight blue color provide a huge wow factor, but the dress is so comfortable that you don't have to suffer for it which was amazing for me because I was in the dress for 7 hours! It does run a little big, so if you want it right I would size down, otherwise just order your normal size! Highly recommended :)
