Bought this from the used section of RTR for my wedding.
This dress is unbelievably gorgeous, and I was so thrilled when I put it on. I'm 5'3", and weigh about 130lbs. I was concerned about the fit because I have a fairly large bust (32DD) and am pretty short. The dress is very long, and even the petite size will brush the floor. It fits perfectly, and is not at all itchy. I couldn't be more pleased.

Oscar statuette!
This dress runs true to size, I was heavier when I took this picture, but I loved how flattering the overall fit was and how it accentuated my best feature (bust) and minimized my problem area (tummy). I felt majestic and everyone loved my dress overall

Dress was way to small at the bust for typical size 16. Luckily, my experience at the store was amazing and the ladies helped to find me a great dress for the HRC Gala.

Gorgeous!
This dress is gorgeous in person -- so sparkly and such a showstopper. I wore it as a bridesmaid in a wedding. Choose your fit based on your bust. I'm a 6 on top and an 8/10 on bottom, and the 6 was a perfect fit. It's very flattering if you are self-conscious about your stomach/hips. If I ever had a swanky event to attend I would rent this again in a heartbeat!

Great dress, true hourglasses beware sizing.
This was a fabulous prom dress. Super eye-catching with a very forgiving cut. The sequins didn't scratch my arms at all and looked great, especially when I walked or danced. The rippling effect is beautiful! The sizing mistake was my fault. I typically wear a 6 or an 8 in jeans, depending on how stretchy they are, and a size small in tops. 6-8 is my normal dress size. However, I am a true hourglass -- I have a booty, a larger bust, but a small waist. For this dress, only the 6 was available, and I was terrified it would be too small. It was the opposite problem, and ended up being just slightly too big. Because it centered around my waist and not my hips, the 4 probably would have been perfect. However, the 6 worked. I wore a strapless bra, and with 4 inch heels the length was perfect, just a bit above brushing the ground (I'm 5'5). And yes, the zipper is just as much of a hassle has everyone says. It took my mom and sister a good 4 or 5 minutes to get it up. But it's worth it!

Golden Glamour For A Winter Wedding
I rented this for a winter wedding in London, close to NYE. I wanted some serious sparkle and this dress definitely delivered. I ended up going with the 8L over the 6L due to the fit from the waist up. The dress was plenty long enough on my 5'11" frame, but due to my broader back and bigger chest size (34D), the 8L ended up zipping much more comfortably. It photographs beautifully and received countless compliments throughout the night!

Fabulous dress!
Good fit overall. The top had the perfect amount of boning and fit perfectly snug to avoid having to constantly pulling it up. It was a bit long but pinned it so not a problem. Got a ton of compliments throughout the night.

Showstopper, but not the most flattering
This dress definitely will get you some attention and is SO fun. It was also very comfortable, with the exception of it was a little scratchy under the arm pits, but not terrible. Unfortunately, I didn't find it to be terribly flattering for my body and there was a weird pucker in the bust that just wouldn't lay right.

The dress was stunning and I felt amazing in it!
I wore this for a Mardi Gras ball in 2013, and got so many compliments on it. When the dress arrived, the original sizes I ordered ended up being too small. However, RTR customer service has always been fantastic, and they were able to overnight a larger size. I usually have issues with dresses being too short, so I ordered the long and it was perfect. I'd highly recommend this for any event.

The 4 regular was long. Definitely needed heels. Fit true to size- maybe a little tight up top.

The dress went perfectly with the Willy Wonka theme, I used it as the 'golden ticket'
The fit was great and the zipper made it easy to get into the dress. I think it is best to wear it without a bra.

This was the most beautiful dress of the night.
The dress was of great quality. The drape looked beautiful and it was actually a bit heavy. Color was gold and shiny, one cannot help being the center of attention. Only con was the zipper was not smooth and it took me a while to zip it up.

Decadent and comfortable
Hard not to feel glamorous. The fabric is gorgeous; i cant imagine the handiwork that went into this all sequins dress. Compliments abound! The top part is awkardly cut for a shortwaisted woman. It felt too tight in the bust and made it look flat. Zipper is very hard to pull up; you need help getting into this dress. Runs a little small. The petite was perfect for a 5.2 with heels. A big fan of Badgley Mischka dresses from Rent the Runway.

Not the right fit
This was supposed to be the dress I wanted for New Year's Eve. Unfortunately it just didn't fit right. The fabric was a little bulky and the sequines were too much. I would recommend it someone who has some more curves than me, a b cup just doesn't fill it out right.

Perfect for an evening out. Would rent again! ✨
I wore this to the Lyric Opera for my golden birthday (part of why I chose this dress!) and received a lot of compliments--to the point that my brother, who went with, got annoyed. The dress is a beautiful, glittering beacon, so it's not for anyone who doesn't want to stand in the spotlight. I'm 5'4'', 140lbs, and wear a 34 DDD. As others on here have said, the dress does run long and if you're big busted--like me--a larger size is needed. I'm glad I followed everyone's recommendations to get a petite and a size up! I ordered an 8P and a 10P, and while the length of the 8P was perfect, the 10P fit my bust. In 4 inch heels, the hem of the 10P dress still swept the ground a little and took both hands to hold up while walking. Worth it! But: if you're 5'4'' or under, definitely get petite and definitely find some taller shoes. You really do need another person to help zip you in. The zipper is especially difficult and the clasp is impossible to get by yourself. Once in, the dress feels WONDERFUL. A little heavy, a little slinky, very smooth on the interior. The sequins are lovely and edge more on the side of champagne than yellow (an excellent gold color). It really lands on elegant and glamorous, when it could easily be gaudy or too trendy. Part of it is the cut, which is super flattering. The sequins do itch a little, but nothing terrible or unbearable. I was so sad, placing this dress in the UPS box --I didn't want to part with it! It really helped make my birthday special and I felt beautiful in it. Thanks, Rent the Runway. :)

Christmas party dazzle!
Love this dress! I received many compliments and felt that it was very memorable night, fun party and special dress that stood out in a sea of formal dresses. As far as fit, I'm 5'6" and usually wear a size 12/14 in clothing, but went up to a 16WR (the only available size was the WR). I found that the length was fine and the dress runs pretty small so this size worked well. I have broad shoulders/rib cage and usually wear bra size 38DD. The dress stayed up well, but I did find that I had to adjust the top of the dress so that it wouldn't roll over. There are a couple stiff pieces in the bodice that I think are meant to help keep the top up, but since the dress has been worn frequently the bodice has lost some of the structure. Overall VERY happy to wear the dress and would recommend!!!

Gorgeous Gowns for a formal affair!
The dress arrived right on time! The dress was clean and appeared as beautiful as in photos. Unfortunately I was not able to wear the dress. It was too small, and when I ordered the dress the back up size was not available. I wear a size 8 and small and medium in most items. I should have ordered a 10 or 12. The dress was stunning! Order the long, I'm 5'2 and the long was perfect, with heels.

This dress was everything! The fit, the shine, I received so many complements!
The dress was perfect, it was a little worn on the inside from overuse maybe, but other than that I loved this dress! I got compliments all night, I danced all night and the girls stayed in place. I was a little worried because there is so much cleavage but it was fine, everything stayed in place. I rented the long and the regular and I went with the regular. Great first rental, easy return, would recommend to anyone considering.

Golden Birthday Bash Success!
I rented this for my best friend for her surprise golden birthday. I took a guess on her size. She normally is a 8/10 but busty. The 12 worked, but it's odd sizing. She looked absolutely gorgeous though and the night was a complete success. She was shocked and loved that she had a golden dress to slip into before the party.

It was a head turner! Everyone complimented my dress and I really stood out. Felt amazing in it!
I am 5'7" so I usually order a Long from RTW, but this 4L was EXTRA long. I probably could have went with a regular. In my photo, I am wearing 3 inch heels.

Just as sparkly as I was hoping!
This dress was awesome! I got it as a replacement when RTR didn't have the dress I'd originally ordered. I had my doubts about wearing a strapless dress as my bust is not usually enough to carry them, but the dress had some ribbing to the top portion and it stayed up very well! It was a little longer than I had hoped, but I am only 5'2, and I paired it with three inch heels which helped a little. Overall I absolutely loved the dress and the experience renting from RTR!

This was my backup gown. I wish it would have worked out though, because it's a beautiful dress!
The dress is gorgeous in person! The gold is bright and sparkly. My only problem was the length. I couldn't wear it because it was just too long. I ordered the 2P because they usually always fit me well, but this dress was just very long on me. I'm just shy of 5'1.

Stunning
I rented this dress for my Cleopatra Halloween costume and loved wearing it every minute of the night. I would definitely rent this again for a formal affair and loved how it felt while walking around. It truly does look like liquid gold as others have said in their reviews. I ended up with a petite because that's all that was available and it was too short. I am 5'3" and definitely recommend ordering the regular length if you're my height and unsure. This dress is truly stunning!

Glittery, Gold and Gorgeous
I wore this for a vow renewal (mine and my hubby's). I wanted something special but not "bridal white". I ordered a size up from my typical number but in petite after reading reviews of how very long the dress is. I am 5'4" and the petite was still long (I was wanted to wear flat sandals, I still did). It really is so incredibly shiny and eye catching. TONS of compliments - you will be noticed in this dress :) I loved how it looked! The zipper is a capital B though! I was freaking out because I thought I have no backup for my vow renewal and I couldn't get it to zip! My hubby had to yank on it quite a bit to make it zip.

Go for the Gold!
My original order was delayed by UPS, but RTR's top-notch customer service saved the day and overnighted this beauty to me. It worked perfectly! Actually, probably better than the original dress I selected. As many of the other reviews suggest - the zipper on this bad boy ain't no joke! It literally takes 1 strong person, or 2 regular people (in addition to the wearer) to make this work if you have a fuller bust. But once zipped up (it took 15 minutes on the first try and 5 on the second try), it is surprisingly comfortable and shimmered all night long. I recommend this dress if you want to stand out in a crowd!

Perfect for "vintage Hollywood" themed event!
I rented this dress for a Vintage Hollywood themed event and it was perfect! After reading the reviews that it runs large, I initially rented the 2R and a 0P (because that's all that was left). The 2R ended up being about 3" too short. Thankfully RTR saved the day and overnighted a 4L which ended up being the perfect length with a 4" heel. The bodice was a little too roomy in the 4 than I would have preferred since it was strapless but no one could tell. It was a very fun dress to wear!

Beautiful dress but too long!
This dress is beautiful with gold sequence from top to bottom but it was too long and i couldn't even wear it. I read through many reviews with similar measurements to mine and although the majority stated the dress was too long, they also said it was okay with 4-5 inch heels. I totally disagree and do not recommend anyone shorter than 5'5'' to rent it. There was just no way i could make it through the night without tripping or holding it to walk. Who wants to do that? I also thought about taping the bottom but the material was just too heavy.

007 Party Hit
I rented the 10 Long for a 007 Bond party and went as Golden girl. The dress fit perfect with small 1.5 inch heals, as I am 5'9" without shoes. Well made zipper and quality material dress. Lined with silky insides and keeps it shape well. Stayed up all night without readjusting. The sequence was a little heavier than I had expected but not hard to move or dance in at all. I loved it. Very perfect for any party.

SO many compliments!!
Wore to a black tie wedding and loved it!! Fit perfectly everywhere but the length was still too long. I wore OP and heels but I'm also only about 5 feet and it wasn't long enough to be bothersome. Photographs so well and for compliments all night. It was comfortable and tight in all the right places but not restrictive!!

Perfect dress to stand out from the crowd.
I fluctuate between a size 6 and size 8 but I chose to go with size 6 for this occasion, boy I was wrong. I was able to get in the dress but it was a struggle. Other then the slight size issue, the dress was amazing. I got compliments all night and I was comfortable and overall I love this designer. Size: 138 Height: 5'0

This dress will make you feel old Hollywood glam!
I got complimented by a professional costume designer for this dress at the event I was at! This dress has a wow factor. Only down side is that it has a pretty stubborn zipper. But still zips, regardless.
