I had to wear Spanx to fit into it.

This dress made me look like I didn't have any cleavage at all. Plus, I had to wear Spanx to fit into the dang thing. It is very flows with gold sequins on the inner part of he dress while on the outer part is a flowy, chiffon material. I got a ton of compliments all night, because apparently when the strobe lights hit it sparkles are all over the walls. :)

So much fun!

I rented this for a bachelorette party weekend in Vegas. The dress was amazing and perfect for the occasion. I got lots of compliments. I wore the size 8 and am usually a 6 or 8 in dresses. However I could not wear a bra it was too tight but it was tight enough to give me cleavage without a bra. I would give it 5 stars but the boning was digging in to my sides and back all mont. I would say the dress was worth it though! I would rent it again!

Cute dress, large bust

This was my backup dress (I forgot to take pictures sorry!), Luckily it was my backup dress because the dress fit pretty well except for the bust. As mentioned below you either need a well padded bra or large breast in order to look good in the dress. When I tried it on, the dress looked pretty decent except for the bust. The extra padding sort of cover up your breast (if you have small ones)... Hope that helps!

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!!

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.

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.

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

this dress reaaally enhances the girls.. and there's some stretch.. so as someone who comfortably wears size 14 clothes, I was able to squeeze in and look HOTT in this dress, size 12. I felt so gorgeous! 36D, 35 waist, 40 inch hips

This was an awesome dress for dancing! I absolutely loved it. Wore it to tridelt spring formal.

I think this is a great dress for a fancier occasion, like New Years. I wore a size down from what I usually wear, and it is a dress that needs to be filled in on top. It did not fall down at all, and the sequins definitely do not stand out as much as I had hoped. It is a great dress to wear to not get noticed too much, but still have some sparkle.

I am a size 10 and I got the size 12 just in case aswell. Neither of them fit, they wouldn't zip up around my ribcage and I had to go with my back up dress for the event. It's a very pretty dress though, it's also very scratchy with all the sequins.

Great Style, with a twist!

This dress was fabulous! Per the reviews, it runs a bit small. I'm normally a 4, but ended up wearing my backup size which was a 6 because the 4 wouldn't zip up the back. I rented for my birthday, and wanted to show a bit more flair, so one of my girlfriends gathered and pinned up the black layer in the back with a pretty pin so the sequin skirt was in full view. Got many compliments, and got to add my own style to the dress. The entire process was easy - I will definitely be renting again!

Runs Small

The dress is beautiful, I usually wear a size 0, but it was quite a bit too small, the size 2 fit perfect. I chose the other dress I rented for the occasion, this one was a bit short for a Work Christmas party, but it was beautiful, and would amazing with a blue pair of shoes that go with the rhinestones.

tigh fit

I ordered this dress for my sorority formal. It doesnt show as much in the picture, but this dress is actually really sparkly in reality and you can definitely see the shimmery slip, which i loved! I am usually an 8 (5'7'', 36B) mostly because I have broad shoulders and ribcage. Im glad I ordered a size up because the 8 wouldnt even zip! The 10 was a perfect fit, tight enough so I didnt have to wear a bra but loose enough to be comfortable. I danced the night away in this and got many compliments!

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!

The sequins were extremely itchy making the dress very uncomfortable.

Very uncomfortable, the sequins on top were cutting into me leaving marks. Top ran small.

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

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!

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.

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!!

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.

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 absolutely loved the miniskirt underneath the chiffon and the way its sequins sparkled!

I had been planning on getting this dress for months, but because it was Homecoming season, I was not able to rent this dress with a back-up size. A size too small, the sequins dug into my skin as I moved, resulting in me tucking in some a bit of the bottom layer as close to my waistline as possible in order to make it more comfortable, which it was. Besides that, it was really soft, in great condition, and I loved it. It squished my bust since I'm a 34D, but I'd definitely rent it again if I had a back-up size available!

Party in the front, business in the back (kind of)

I didn't like how the dress only had sequins beneath the fabric on the front and none in the back. It made it seem cheaper, but it has a very flattering neckline. I didn't end up wearing it.

Amazing dress, really stylish and beautiful

I am a size six in Ann Taylor dresses but you have to think that this dress is designed for really skinny girls with no busts. the bust part fit way too snugged, i thought the dress was gonna run big so i rented the 4 and 6. the bust form of this dress is like a 32 B. The 6 leaves marks on my breast, i cant breath in it, but i will suck it up for the fact that i look stunning in this dress. it hits at my mid thigh and rides up as i walk. i give it 4 stars because it is so gorgeous but it truelly runs small.

Turnabout 2013

I needed a dress ASAP for my school's turnabout and this dress caught my eye. The sequin part is actually really fitted, especially if you have hips and I had to wear my 8 complimentary size to squeeze into it. Also, there was a snag in the boning so i ended up with a huge scar under my bust from the dress rubbing against it all night. overall great dress, I just wish RTR would take dresses out of inventory that are that destroyed.

Dress is gorgeous!

The sparkle detail is beautiful. The online pictures don't do it justice. I saw the gold/ silver but not the blue. It was a nice surprise. A beautifully made dress. I felt like a million dollars all night long. It was snug in all the right places. I can't wait to use RTR again.

Pretty, but makes your tummy look big and all of the sparkle gets covered up!!

This dress was really pretty, but the chest part of it was super uncomfortable. I kept having to pull it up, and it poked into me. I have a small bust so it fit well; it's just made strangely. The black overlay needs to be pulled back somehow so you can see the sparkly part of the dress! I would have used fabric tape if I got any. :\ Instead I ended up just pulling it back and putting my hands on my hips in pictures. It looked kind of funny though. Also, the sparkly dress kind of made my tummy look big, or that it was poking out or something. Most dresses make it look flat (and I'm pretty thin as is) so this was also weird to me. As far as service goes, I got the dress on time and everything, but on the day I had to return it, I could NOT find a convenient UPS location to drop it off at, and the ones I went to were only open while I'm in school. I ended up leaving during lunch to go find a place.

puckered at hips

loved the neckline and had high hopes. I wear 10/12 in normal sizes but could not zip up the 12 in this dress all the way. As it was, the waist was already puckering and it was unflattering.

So cute!

I loved the cut of this dress, and the details are beautiful. I felt it ran a little small, but I have a curvy figure and sometimes dresses without any give (like this one) are hard to pull off in my usual size.

Perfect for a Mardi Gras themed party!

Rented this for a charity event with a Mardi Gras theme. Ran a bit tight in the chest area (and I by no means have a large chest) so I went with the size 6. Would go a size up on the second size. The front of the dress has two black sheer panels which part in the middle, so you can't see the glitters unless you part the panels, but it sure is dramatic when you do! Look at the two photos I posted to get an idea of what I mean.

This dress made my 30th birthday sparkle!

I wore this dress for my boyfriend's and my joint 30th birthday party at a burlesque club in Atlantic City. It was perfect, the right amount of subtle sparkle, form fitting with a flowy overlay so no body imperfections could be seen. It was a little large in the bust, but the boning helped hold it up all night. I got several compliments throughout the night and then several more after posting pictures. My only complaint about this dress is that prior to arriving to me, the boning in the back had ripped a hole in the fabric, so when I wore it, the boning stabbed me in the back all night. It was hard to dance with the sharp stabbing pain. Check all the boning before wearing this dress out so you can put a little extra padding there if you need it!
