Awesome dress for an awesome work party!

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Just loved. Felt so beautiful in this dress! Only thing is that the zipper is extremely difficult, as others have said. Two people had to work on it to get it up and they almost gave up. Luckily we persevered! I am a 36H, so more like a 10/12 around the waist but needed the 14 up top. If you're large breasted, size way up. This is actually much LESS revealing on larger breasted women, in my opinion, because it stays in place. Will rent again!!

Who doesn't like a festive gala right around the holidays! I was seeking sequins :)

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress definitely matched what I was looking for - sequins and festive. I felt that the empire waist was not the most flattering on my body type but I wore it anyway! My friend also had a rent the runway dress that looked great on her (the black and gold dress). Definitely an easy experience renting from them & will do it again!

Badgley Mishka dresses always work well for me and this dress is no exception. I rented the longer version of this dress for a wedding earlier this year. The dress is beautiful and elegant. The top was a little large (which is unusual for me I am a a 34D) but other than that it was true to size.

Such Sassy Sparkles

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Overall the dress was really flattering. It was definitely a little tight, around the arms and I would've wanted to size up, but (as mentioned in other reviews) the dang zipper was really sticky and would not zip up unless I took the dress off, which defeats the purpose. Low front, but I didn't feel overexposed. Can't beat oodles of sparkles

Beautiful dress, flattering if you have some curves. Looks good with tights or without. Comfortable, not too itchy. Perfect length for a tall girl. I wore this to a masquerade party during Halloween and it was perfect little dress for the night! I enjoyed wearing it and one of those dresses I wish I owned.

Holiday party glam

This dress worked out for me after the one I really wanted was returned to RtR (by previous renter) damaged and unwearable. RtR was kind enough to let me choose (2) other dresses since my first choice wasn't available. This worked worked out well and I got a lot of compliments at the party and on FB.

Perfect Party Dress!!

Size worn: 16
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress was a perfect fit and made me feel so sexy. It definitely will show your cleavage so if that's an issue for you, this dress is not for you. The dress was very comfortable and I would highly recommend it. The process of getting and returning the dress was also very easy. The only issue I had with the dress was the zipper wanted to stick out at the bottom because I have some junk in my trunk, which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. I was able to fix that with just a couple pins. My bust size is 40 D. It wouldn't give me that option to choose.

I usually wear a size 10 and I went up to a 12 because of the bust area. It was a bit loose around the hips but tighter around the bust.

Eye catching, great style, and just perfect! I wish I could've kept it!

Size worn: 12
Rented for: Party
This dress was actually my backup dress because another dress I liked best was only available in one size (didn't want to risk that one size not fitting). I tried it on and it hugged in all the right places and was slightly loose right where it needed to be! It showed a good amount of cleavage (not bad in my opinion!). I felt beautiful and I got so many compliments on it! I wore it to my work Christmas party (dress code is "festive attire"). Would def rent it again!

I felt like a million bucks in my dress!!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Party
I liked this dress but I wouldn't say I loved it. The reasons that made me not love it was the fact it was very low cut, I ended up pinning it together in the front because you could see my bra and felt like I was a little too exposed for my level of comfort. It was super hard to zip and un-zip, you cannot do it yourself and it was really hard for my husband to do. The fit is a little odd, I felt like it made me look pregnant. I wore the dress to my work holiday party which is a fancy event. This dress was just perfect for it. I loved how it sparkled and got compliment after compliment all night long. The fit was true to size, many reviews said it ran big but not in my case. I wear a 6 in most dresses so I ordered a 4 and a 6. The 6 was perfect. This was my first time using RTR and I'm hooked. I will use it again. Even though I didn't love the dress I would recommend it to anyone. I feel like it's a good dress for nearly any body type.

I had recently rented this dress in the navy color. While I still loved the dress and the fit, I liked the navy much better than the black version. However, they are both great dresses and I would rent again. The sequins can be a little scratchy but it is super fun and funky!

Overall fit: True to Size

I loved the neckline and the fact that I could still wear a normal bra. The zipper was a bit hard to work with even with the dress on the hangar, so be prepared for some frustration zipping it up. I think the dress could have been an inch or two shorter, but overall it was the perfect dress for my first RTR experience!

I got this for a wedding and black was the way to go & the sequins really added something special.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

I usually wear and 8 but this just zipped!! Needed 2 people to zip me otherwise I could not wear it. It fit perfectly though once zipped past the challenging section where the zipper sort of got stuck. Would recommend getting your usual size and a size larger. Great dress though! Perhaps a little uncomfortable under the arm pit with the sequins, but got used to it fast.

Dress fit perfectly. It's very flattering as it conceals yr midsection and gives you a more defined waistline. I also loved the sexy neckline which did require a little fashion tape. Overall great dress.

Overall, I liked the dress. I didn't love it. The fit wasn't exactly the way I liked - it made me feel a little hippy. But I got a lot of compliments on it, so it probably looked better than I thought it did. The style was perfect for a country club wedding and it photographed nicely in pictures.

Pros: The fit is very flattering for a busty girl with hips. I felt very pretty. Cons: it was extremely hard to zip up, the band underneath the chest has absolutely no give, and the sparkles caught on EVERYTHING (completely ruined my shawl)

Head turning dress!

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I felt sexy, confident, and beautiful in this dress and received multiple compliment. I usually wear a 14, and the 14 was perfect. A little snug at the waist, but that is where I carry the majority of my weight. Some reviews complained about the sequins scratching their arms- I didn't notice when I was dancing ALL NIGHT LONG. I do wish the dress had been slightly shorter. I'm 5'8" and had assumed it would be mid-thigh, but it was actually almost to my knees. Still looked and felt amazing though. It is low cut so you need to be OK with showing off a little cleavage. Thanks RTR!

This was my first time using RTR and I was very pleased! The dress was beautiful and still looked brand new. It fit true to size. I actually could have worn either size..10 or 12. They both fit! My only down side to this dress was the neckline. When I sat down there was major cleavage and it went so low you could see the top of my stomach. My husband didn't like that too much! I was constantly checking to make sure everything was in all snuggled in when I was sitting. It was easy to move in and fun to wear all the sparkles!

Rented this little beauty for my bachelorette party. Perfect for the event and made me feel sexy.

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
It was very true to size. I am a true 14 and I only ordered the one size (by mistake!) so I was happy it fit perfect. The zipper is a little hard to close, but I had help and we were able to pull it up. It's very low cut, so if you are super 'booby', it may make you feel self conscious. But I thought the dress was very forgiving; it hid all the parts that aren't as flattering, but highlighted the good stuff. This dress also comes in blue, which I may rent when I go to Las Vegas next month. Perfect for a fancy, special night!

Sparkle and shine!

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Appearance-wise, this dress was just what I wanted. It was pretty and fancy. Functionality-wise it was decent. It was comfortable and I was able to wear a regular bra, but the zipper was tough to maneuver by myself - I had to recruit my friend to help. I ended up wearing the larger size because the zipper felt like it was going to break when trying to zip it up on the smaller size. I don't believe that the dress was too tight either, because my friend could easily gather the fabric at the zipper - it was odd. But not wanting to ruin the dress, I opted for the larger size. It fit okay. I don't think many people could tell it was too large because of the pleating and the cut of the dress, so I think I pulled it off.

I felt the dress was true to size but the chest area was big on me and I'm a 36D. I felt a little conscious all night about my girls hanging out. Also, the dress was a little short in the back because I got a booty but all in all, I loved this dress and would recommend it!

I was very happy with my RTR dress. Like other reviews have said the waist band was snug and the zipper was a challenge to get up. If I went up to a 10 the shoulders would have fallen off. Had to pin them to make them stay up. Overall VERY happy with RTR. The accessory they chose to "mystery" send with this dress was a pair of earrings that were a perfect match for the dress. Super light weight. I wore them all night and barely knew they were there!

Fun, pretty black sequins. Comfortable.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was a last minute switch at the RTR shop in Las Vegas for a dress I had ordered for our Anniversary dinner. I normally wear a size 6 but had to grab this size 10 because it was my only option in the shop. It was super cute, great for Las Vegas, a night on the town, NYE. Because it was a few sizes too big, I had to take it in the waist but couldn't do anything with the big straps and I had to keep pulling it in and up all night. For reference: I'm 5"3 and my chest size is 34DD and I typically wear a size 6 in BCBG and Express. The black sequins were great and I received many compliments.

Similar to many other reviewers, I received SO MANY compliments on this dress. It’s stunning, perfect for a wedding, and will make you feel sexy. I am a 14, but the 16 fit comfortably. It is low cut, so I pinned it for safety. Otherwise, glam it up with a push up bra and vavavoom!

I love the fact that you could wear a regular bra with this dress, that is definitely good for a full-busted woman like myself. The dress is stunning and eye catching. I definitely recommend it for whatever event you have coming up. I wore it for a Casino Royals party and an awards ceremony. I was not disappointed. My only complaints are that it is a little heavier than I expected so I was a little warm, the sequins were a little itchy, and the zipper was difficult to zip up or down.

Comfortable & versatile dress!

I needed a black dress for a Saturday night date to a "black tie optional" event. I thought this sequin black dress would be perfect and it was! It is very comfortable and fit true to size. I am a 10. It does have a plunging neckline but you can wear a normal bra without any issue. I will likely rent this one again as it's a winner! The only reason I gave it 4 stars vs 5 is due to the few pleats in the front of the dress. I am not a fan of pleats as my tummy is my problem area. It fell nicely on my waist so it was a nice a big problem.

I was really worried the dress wouldn't fit. I called the support and they helped. The back up size is important. The the bust fit well however you have to be comfortable about your cleavage. The zipper was a little tricky. I had to ask my date to zip it completely.

Glittery for a night on the town

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I wore this for my friend's bachlorette party. This for sure runs big. I normally wear a size 12, but the chest was massive. Be prepared for some gaping issues and the need for pinning or fashion tape. I would say this runs a full size big and would suggest ordering down for your back up size.I felt like there was sufficent room in the waist for us hippy girls and would also look great on someone with a larger chest (D or larger) I wanted to wear something black to put the attention on the bride to be, but still wanted to look great. I felt there was a lot of room in the stomach area which could be great for concealing for those that need it, but for me, I think it made me look larger than I reall was. I think this was a little "classier" and "glamorous" for our romp around the town at various bars and nightclubs but it worked for me. This dress would be great for a Christmas party, roaring 20s theme event or any type of nightime fundraiser.
