Very Pretty, But A Tad Cheap
This dress is very pretty, but the sequin bit of the dress looks and feels a bit cheap. Also, some of the sequins were a little damaged, but not enough so that others could tell. Overall, I would recommend this dress.

Very sexy!!
It is very sexy and beautiful dress. I'm 34A usually wear size 4 or 2 on top, size 4 on the bottom. This dress fit perfectly on the bottom but I need some padded bra on top. Whenever I move or dance on the floor, sparkly dress was showing under the black chiffon outter layer. It was really pretty black dress with sparkles.

Very Cute, But Hard to Zip!
I ordered this dress in a 6 and 8. At first I didn't think I would wear it because I tried on the 8 and it was big on me, and made me look a size bigger than I am. I tried on the 6, and it seemed to fit, but I couldn't get the zipper to go all the way up. I ended up asking my roommate to help me zip up the 6, and once we got the zipper up it was really cute and fit perfect! It's a little short for someone average height, but I'm short so it was the perfect length on me. I also got a lot of compliments on it that night! The only bad thing was it is a little uncomfortable because the boning of the bodice dug in a little bit. But what's fashion without a little pain, right?!

It was beautiful!
I unfortunately did not get to wear this dress out. Due to a mistake, I received the dress the day it needed to be returned. So, I tried on the dress (LOVED IT), but had to send it back within minutes. I thought it fit well and was even prettier in person. I wish I got to wear it for more than ten minutes!

I was so happy with everything I got from RTR! My best guy friend even said to me "You can't tell me that you don't feel absolutely beautiful in that dress!"
This dress was super cute and fit perfectly, however, the sequins did get turned around a bit and got itchy by the end of the night. I really loved this dress though it made me feel like a million bucks

Gorgous dress, but a little big and long. GET A SIZE SMALLER!
Im very petite with a full bust so its hard for things to fit me. This dress looks amazing, and very classy. WARNING if your short, i wouldnt recomend, because it does hit a little longer on me. I sorta tucked it underneath itself and use double sided tape... :( it turned out pretty good, just not really on the comfortable side, so in general buy a size down!!

Looking in the mirror after zipping it up!
This dress looked great, and I loved it at first, but after having it on for more than 5 minutes, I found it to be really, really itchy. Thank goodness I had another dress, because I wouldn't have been able to stand the itchiness all throughout the homecoming dance!

Not so good
The dress barely fit. I'm 5'7 and even in the bigger size it barely covered my butt. I felt like I couldn't breathe, things were poking me, and the sequins hurt. Additionally, the sheath part that goes over starts right under the breasts so if you have an hourglass figure (like me) it hides your curves and makes you look bigger than you are. I think this dress is probably better for women with little/no curves

This dress was amazing! I received so many compliments!
I ordered this awesome dress for a wedding. It was my first time using RTR, so i was a bit nervous. I ordered the dress in a 4 and 6...the 4 fit like a glove! It's a good thing too because the 6 had bunching going on because of the sequins pulling on the threads near the bottom. Everyone gave me so many compliments, I felt so great in this dress!

9th Grader - Homecoming - She loved it!!
We rented this for our daughters Homecoming at her High School. She is only a 9th grader and was a little hesitant on whether the dress would look to old for her...but she looked FABULOUS!!! She loved the fit and got alot of compliments!! While to me she will always look to grown when she is all dressed up ... we were very pleased with the outcome and can't wait to rent again!! ;) Julia is about 5'1 and weighs 115 lbs ... her body is athletic petite and her bust size is 34A.

I wore this dress to a winter wedding, and received many compliments.
The dress was a little loose, but that was easily fixed with some double-stick tape. The sequins are blue and gold and the dress has a very unique look.

It is extremely flattering because the sequin shell is very fitted. Also, I have a huge butt so the chiffon definitely helped cover it up a little, but in a good way. Got a million compliments and felt very confident.

Perfect
I wore this dress to my first prom! I originally planned on wearing the zero but thankfully I ordered a backup size... I'm 15 years old, 5"2 and weigh about 115. I'm only a 32B so usually I don't have this problem, but the zero was really tight in the chest area and wouldn't zip all the way. The 2 fit much better. This dress is a great length and would flatter any body type. It's overall comfortable and easy to move around in. Obviously it's very well made and I would definitely recommend to any of my friends!

Amazing NYE dress
I love, love, loved this dress. The photos don't do it justice. The sequins are navy, gold, black, and maybe silver - it looks so cute under the black chiffon, which billows elegantly when you move or dance. The under layer is really short, if that's a concern. The top is pretty supportive, but you could easily cram a strapless bra under there if you needed to. Love it! Wish it wasn't so memorable so I could wear it again this year.

Amazing, Gorgeous Dress!!
The picture does not do it justice! I rented it for homecoming and my boyfriend told me when i showed him the picture he didn't really like it, but in person it looked amazing. The dress is super comfortable and I love the black over the sparkles. The only problem was on my dress a wire from the built in bra kept scratching me. But after I taped my skin it didn't bother me. However maybe it was just me but the line where the bust would end was pretty low on me and I didn't exactly like that. Other than that the dress was amazing, got sooo many compliments!

I wore this to my senior homecoming when I was on court. Received so many compliments!!
I usually fit in a size 4 perfectly, but this dress ran very small in the chest are especially. The 6 barely fit around my chest as well. There was a very uncomfortable piece of the dress that pushed into my ribs (size 6). The only thing I didn't like about the dress was that it hit pretty low down the leg, so it took a while to get used to the length. Overall, I absolutely loved it!! I highly recommend it if you're interested.

I loved the dress, it was exactly what I expected.
It had a good fit, the only thing I was worried about was whether it would be long enough since I'm 6 feet tall but it was plenty long. My only complaint is that the boning didn't quite go up to the top of the neckline so the fabric kept rolling out and the dress tape didn't really help.

Couldn't wear it, too small in the bust.
Unfortunately my backup size didn't come (hurricane) and the bust on the 10 was wayyyy too small.. but it was a GORGEOUS dress!!

Stunning front, frumpy back
This dress was beautiful and definitely eye-catching. I'm usually a 6 or 8, and liked the 6. There were a few cons though that made me choose to wear my backup dress instead. The boning and sequins on the top and underarms were a little painful. Also, there are no sequins on the back and the longer chiffon fell in an awkward place on me. I felt like the longer back, combined with the lack of sequins made it pretty frumpy looking from behind.

Figure-flattering, sophisticated sparkle!
This dress was a huge hit! It's very flattering for hourglass shapes, since it highlights/creates a small waist while showing off curves. I'm a 34D, and while I don't usually wear a strapless bra under dresses with structure/boning, in this case, I DID need to. The dress is not as supportive up top as it could be, probably because it's been worn by many girls at this point. I was a little worried that the dress would look too youthful in person, with all the sequins and the fuller skirt, but it ended up being very sophisticated after all—something about the sheer black chiffon and the beautiful draping. It was totally fun and sparkly, and although the neckline was low, with the full, flowing skirt, it wasn't too revealing and still felt appropriate at a wedding.

Great color and design, not so much for the petite.
This was ordered as a back up dress for my prom and the was a lot of pros and cons that came along with this dress. It was really small in the bust area and fit long even though i ordered a size zero. The sheer fabric and sequins are really pretty but the overall dress was not that great.

Not for me...
I think that this dress would be great for certain people... Personally I thought it looked a little too pre-teen for me. The wires in the top portion of the dress were also pretty uncomfortable.

I'm the lead singer for a cover band that plays at weddings. The glitz was perfect for stage and I got the wow factor! It fit great and is the perfect length for my 5'5 height. Hit me mid thigh. I love this dress and am wearing it again next week for a performance at a holiday party. Thanks RTR!

Beautiful and comfortable dress! Got a ton of compliments.
The sequin part of the dress was more blue than it looked in the pictures and was beautiful. I usually wear a 6 but ended up wearing the 4 because it fit my bust better (it was a bit tight at the waist though). Also, the zipper in the back tended to bunch up and leave a wrinkle (why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5). Overall I would highly recommend this dress!

Glam!
Would have loved to have worn this dress, but my backup size was not availbale. I squeezed into the 0 but my chest (34B) would not fit (got it zipped, but didn't create cleavage- just sort of smooshed them together and made them really flat from the side). A size 2 would have been perfect, so maybe next time that's what I'll do! Otherwise-- completely stunning. So many ways to glitz it up or down-- add a black blazer and tights to play down the sequins, or add some fun sparkle earrings and bracelet to really draw some attention. LOVE IT and so sad my chest is too big (for once, haha).

I felt so beautiful! Rent the Runway made my night.
The dress was a bit itchy at the hem of the dress, but it wasn't terrible. I got SO many compliments from other girls at the event, my date's fraternity brothers and strangers on the street. It was definitely a knock out dress. It ran a bit big and I ended up wearing a size down than I normally would.

Amazing dress for a perfect new years in Atlantic City!
Beautiful dress, I was hesitant to order at first because of the picture but after looking at user reviews/pictures I decided to take a chance. I'm so happy I did, not only is this dress beautiful but it was also so comfortable. Something that's different is the back of the dress has sequins as well which I was really happy with instead of it just being all black fabric that's shown in the RTR pictures. The previous reviews said it get a size bigger in case since it ran small. I ordered a 4 and a 6 and ended up wearing the 4 even though I'm usually a 6 because the sequin under-lay was shorter and more fitted which looked nicer. The bust area was tighter but it worked fine for me since I'm only an A cup. I really recommend this dress it was awesome, don't let the RTR picture deceive you!!!!

I felt beautiful and elegant, I can't wait to use RTR again!
It flowed really well, but the shimmery bit underneath wasn't the most flattering and the black material was a bit on the dark side. The bodice is really big, and can swallow up the torso. The dress was beautiful, but I spent a lot of the night pulling it up and adjusting my dress. the length was very appropriate for my high school formal. overall good experience, if I could do it again though I would probably get a different dress

A perfect little black dress for parties, with just a hint of sequins for sparkle!
This dress had really great shape to it with a well-constructed corseted top and cinched waist. I made the dress boobilicious by using a backless adhesive bra, but the dress could have easily been worn without a bra at all or worn without a push up bra if you don't want to show off the girls. I believe the dress would also easily fit size C, because for me, size B, without a bra, there was plenty of room. The black chiffon overlay parts in the middle so that when you move or dance the sequins shine through. The sequin slip underneath is made of a stretchy material so it allows for some hip-room if you need it. I accessorized with Kenneth Jay Lane double tear-drop clip on earrings, a simple gold necklace, and a gold cuff bracelet on each wrist. Thank you RTR! This made for a fantastic NYE dress.

I wore this to homecoming this fall and LOVED the dress! I received so many compliments on it!
It fit very true to size for me, and was very comfortable to wear. I thought the sequins may be itchy but they weren't at all! The sequins tended to get caught on the chiffon overlay, but it thankfully it didn't snag. The sequin part underneath is pretty short, just a heads up. Overall I was incredibly pleased with this dress and didn't want to return it!
