Friends
I wore this dress for a Great Gatsby themed birthday party. The dress was a great fit and perfect length for my personal preference. I am 5'11" and it hit right above the knee. I only wore this for a few hours so didn't have any issues with the sequins and got tons of compliments!

Super Flattering - So many compliments!
I felt like a Rent the Runway ambassador at the end of the night with how many people asked "WHERE did you get that dress?!" My only complaint would be that the sequins did rub in the arm/armpit area, but it wasn't anything horrible. The length is perfect (not too short) and it gives just the right amount of sparkle. I was comfortable in this all night.

So glam and great fit
I rented this dress for a cruise vacation. I could have worn the 12 or 14. It was a perfect knee length dress for me (I have long lets) and there was plenty of room at the bust . As a matter of a fact, I have rented similar Badgley Mischka dresses similar to this, and I've LOVED them all.

A show stopper but avoid if you have a large bust!
I wore this for my sister's bachelorette party. I am 5'10" and about 145lb. I typically take a size 4, 6 in dresses. This dress I got a 6 and a backup size 8. I wore the six. I wore a bra with it to help fill out the top. If you have a large bust line (larger than a D) I would avoid, as you would have cleavage spilling out everywhere. This looked super elegant. It also had a slight stretch to it on the bottom which helped me bust out some moves on the dance floor. The length was great. Being tall, I didn't feel like I was going to show my behind. If you have a cocktail party or bachelorette party, consider this dress!

This dress was an amazing and flattering fit and length. My only issue was the neckline cut very low. Still, comfortable and tons of compliments all night.

Elegant feel
I'm 6'1'' and the dress was just barely long enough. But the dress was thick with a little weight which helped keep the dress from riding up. I felt so glamorous and elegant! Great LBD!

The sparkle and compliments.
It fit nicely. Cute dress. Rental dress package was was horribly. The rental bag had two holes in it. Left on my porch while it was raining. The rain got inside of the bag. One of the dresses was slightly wet through the plastic.

Cute dress. Shorter than expected
This was a super cute dress. Low cut as others said, but nothing that couldn't be fixed by a safety pin. I didn't end up wearing it because it was a LOT shorter than I expected. It was ok in the front, but the skirt was cut shorter in the back.

Bring a safety pin! Otherwise, AWESOME
So so many compliments on this dress I wore out for a bachelorette party. Warning, it does not have a clasp so bring a safety pin if you don't want your bra showing. Also, after a night of dancing, it did chaff a little under my arms. Overall, awesome dress, great fit, would rent again.

AMAZING!
I am in love with this dress. It hugged my curves perfectly and showed just enough to still be sexy but classy. I wore this to a Black Tie event and had complements all night. I will be renting this dress again without a doubt - this is my favorite rental I have gotten from RTR so far!

This dress was beautiful, but unfortunately I had to return it, as it was a bit too low cut for my liking. Great dress though, runs true to size!

This dress was perfect for a wedding! It sparkled so well with the lights in the reception.
This dress was perfect, esp if you want something that isn't too form fitting. I didn't have to wear a bra with it, but I have a small bust, very small bust, and I had to safety pin the front closed, otherwise everyone would have gotten a show. Highly recommend.

Classy with lots of sparkles
This was a great dress for a night out. I felt beautiful at a fancy restaurant, and had a great time going out for a bachelorette party in this dress. The fit was snug through the waist and had room to move through the hips. It was a bit large on the top. I couldn't fill it out, so I used double sided tape. I also needed to use tape to prevent the straps from falling.

Great dress for a special event
This dress was perfect for a black-tie optional wedding. Fit well and was very comfortable. A few reviews commented on the itchy sequins, but I didn't have that issue. I did have to pin the neckline because it was low. I would wear this again!

Sassiness but plunging
Loved the fit of the dress but the plunging neck line was my biggest problem. Like other reviews, you can safety pin it but I opted to wear a different dress for the wedding.

This dress was Great Gatsby party perfect
The fit was on point. The waist line hits in just the right spot under your chest to be very flattering. I had some difficulty getting the zipper up - two of my gals had to help. It wasn't that it was too small, it just had a difference in fabric at the waistline that was making it really tricky. Other than that it was perfect. I am glad I had someone home when I got back as there is no way I could have unzipped it myself.

I really enjoyed wearing this dress. I got so many compliments about it. The only negatives were the fact that the dress is extremely low cut and the shoulder/chest area was too large.

I got compliments on this dress all night!!! It made me feel really confident!
Over all the dress fit pretty true to size. The only problem I had is that it was a little tight in the rib cage under the bra strap. It did end up loosening up after wearing it and it was fine, but I was a little concerned when I first put it on. I wish I would have went a size up for my alternate size instead of going a size down like they recommended.

Looked classy, fit perfectly, and quite comfortable!
I wore this dress for a night on the town and to a show for my sister's Bachelorette party in Las Vegas. I loved this dress! I remember reading some reviews before renting this dress that stated the sequins were bothersome in the underarm area, but I had zero issues with that. I was comfortable in this dress the entire night. I will say the dress was a bit more low cut than what I usually prefer (as shown in one of the pics to demonstrate..), but I figured oh what the heck, it's Vegas, anything goes. Although it was low cut, it wasn't baggy or sagging by any means, and I am definitely not blessed in the bust region. I will also say I loved the ruching in the front to hide my "food baby" ...perfect considering we did a lot of eating and drinking that weekend. I would definitely recommend this for a friend!

Nothing
The dress is pretty in pictures but once on the v neck is so low cut that I couldn't wear it. The material was flapping on top and provided no coverage whatsoever. With a bra on it was so low cut that the bra was visible

Received compliments from strangers
I rented this to wear to a bachelorette party and also to test the sizes for a bridesmaid dress I am wrong in a few months. The dress is low cut and I followed advice of other reviews by using a safety pin to make less of the bra visible. For me it seemed like it was longer in the from than the back. The zipper is hard to get up but it's because of the binging of the material. But it was great for Las Vegas being shiny and sequined. A random lady told me she loved my dress at a restaurant bar so it definitely did its job!

Sexy LBD! I looked like a superstar on my birthday!
I love this dress! The cut is so flattering, and it wasn't tight in the bust area at all. Lots of cleavage so if you aren't comfortable showing any, this isn't the dress for you. I have a bit of a belly and this dress hid it well. It hugged me in all of the right places ;)

Received compliments all night long!
This dress is glamorous, glitzy, and glamorously glitzy! It was perfect for our Mardis Gras-themed prom. I loved wearing this shorter dress because it meant I didn't have to watch out for my heels or other people stepping on the skirt. I could also wear a normal bra with it, so that was a definite plus. Unfortunately, like other people have said, the front is pretty low cut, and since I don't have a lot going in the front, I also had to safety pin the front. When I sat down, I had to constantly pull the top V together and pull the dress down to make sure the straps didn't fall off of my shoulders. And finally, the zipper. It was horrendous, stuck from at the waist and extremely resistant the remaining 5 inches up, the back, but it worked out in the end! Once all is said and done, the dress is quite comfortable and easy to dance in! I would recommend this dress to others - just make sure someone's around to zip it up for you.

I LOVED this dress! Compliments galore!
I ordered the 2 sizes, and ended up going with the smaller size. They were cut a bit differently, and I am guessing people have put a few stitches here and there on the neckline. The larger sizes neckline was not so low, and the smaller size was plunging a lot more. It looked like someone put a stitch or 2 in the larger size neckline. The fit was great though, and it was easy to wear a regular plunge bra. Everyone complimented me nonstop and it just felt great and comfortable. I wore it to a holiday party and it was perfect.

Fun and sparkly!
This dress was great fitting. I did pin the top to hold the girls in a little more and ended up finding another safety pin from a previous wearer :-) My husband struggled with the zipper but did eventually get it up! Besides that, I got lots of great compliments and will definitely rent again!

Dress is true to size and was perfect for a work holiday event. The length was just write & the v-neck was not too revealing. The armpits were a little scratchy but overall it was great.

Perfect for the belly bump
I wore this at 7 months pregnant! I was so comfortable and loved the dress. The top was definitely too big, but I ordered a bigger size than usual to fit my belly. I just added a pin and was fine to hold the v neck together and was fine.

Perfect for a black tie optional event
Wore this for a Rotary International event. My sizing is all over the place because I just had a baby so I opted to go up since the baby weight is there. I had a bit of trouble zipping it-the zipper itself is tough but it fit wonderfully. I just turned around so I could zip it from the front and then twisted it back. Got many many compliments and I felt good in it

Very pretty but too low cut for formal affair
Rented for a wedding but didn't realize quite how low cut it would be. Rather than pin it and worry about spilling out (I'm a C/D cup), I decided to nix it almost immediately. Would be awesome for a night out with the girls though!
