This was perfect for a night out in Vegas. If you can, rent directly from the RTR store there.
Just be prepared - it's very low cut. But oh so fun overall.

Stunning Christmas party dress!!!
I wore this dress to my work semi formal Christmas party and it was a HIT. The subtle sparkle of the fabric wasn't over the top in your face cliche Christmas party bling, but a more sophisticated and stylish way to still add some shine to a holiday party dress. I'm 5'1 and usually wear between a 2 or a 4, but I went with the 2 because I wanted a more fitted look through the waist and chest. The fabric has a little stretch to it, but still maintains a structured look. Usually short dresses tend to be too "long" on my frame, but this one hit a few inches above my knee and was the perfect length. The front V neck is very low, but because of my chest size it was appropriate for a work party. I did end up securing it with a couple pieces of fashion tape because you can't wear it with a bra. That being said, I wouldn't recommend this dress for girls larger than a C cup unless they are comfortable showing some serious cleavage. I got so many compliments (from girls and guys) all night in this dress, and I really was so sad to send it back. Definitely my favorite RTR rental so far. Rent this dress!!

Absolutely stunning for a wonder formal
Wore this for a high school winter dance. Like everything else from RTR, it was gorgeous and fit perfectly. I'd recommend going down one size. Be mindful of your bra choice (if you chose to wear one).

Great for dancing
Perfect dress, perfect length, very flattering and sparkly. Great length for spinning around the dance floor all night at a wedding! Flattering fitted waist, very low cut though!

This is a stunner!! A head-turner in all the right ways.
This dress is a KNOCKOUT and so much prettier in person than on the model. I got compliments all night long, and I felt comfortable and beautiful. The color is actually a rosy copper, and pairing accessories was a little tricky. I ended up wearing some dangly, all-black earrings that I own, and it worked perfectly. I am very fair, and the color was incredibly flattering. It is low cut, and I was a little nervous about baring some cleavage (not something I typically have occasion to do), but it was sexy and appropriate for the party I attended. My husband loved it and said it was the prettiest dress he'd ever seen me in. Can't go wrong with this one, and it was just the right amount of classy, sexy, and fun.

Show stopper!
The color is GORGEOUS. It is so hard to capture it in a photo, but it's super glam and sort of edgy which is a really cool contrast to the classic fit & flare silhouette. I felt like the perfect mash up of Blair and Serena. Also the skirt is so very twirly and there are pockets! The only thing is that the chest fit sort of weird. If it weren't for the awesome fabric I probably wouldn't have worn it. I have a pretty small chest, a small 34B, but that wasn't the problem. It was more that the chest was too short? I'm tall but don't have a particularly long torso so I was surprised by this peculiar fit. Like I said, it's super fun and a gorgeous color so it all made up for it in the end.

It made me look stunning! Perfect dress for a perfect night!
It fit perfectly and made my waist look very small and my bust bigger than it was. I wore a bandeau underneath this dress because although it doesn't look very low on the model, it showed about my whole chest. This dress made my night unforgettable and turned many heads!

Sexy and fun! Lots of compliments!
Yes, you will have cleavage. It was a bit daring while still being sweet. Loved the color, more shiny in person. No stretch! The 8 fit great everywhere but I chose the 6 because it was tighter in the bust so I wouldn't need a bra. I danced all might in this beauty!

Everytime I've rented open ceremony I love the fit!
This dress got a ton of compliments. The color is truly amazing in person. RTR pics really do not do it justice. Boobs were kind of all the way out but I didn't mind it at all. Great fit on the waist. Also, length was pretty perfect for me!

PERFECT: POCKETS?!
This is my favorite dress I have ever worn. I ordered it last minute, and it came on time and fit perfectly. I looked stunning and different from everyone else... The best part I didn't even see in the description... IT HAS POCKETS! You can't see them from the outside and they are very hidden. The color of the dress is much deeper than in the picture. Wish I could own this forever, four days wasn't enough!!

Unique and awesome fit
I am very petite and was really worried this would be too big. It was perfect, not too tight but tight enough I could go without a bra. Loved the pockets, loved the sparkle and loved the fun silhouette!

The color!
This is a great dress. RTR's photos do not do it justice! It's color is more of a dark purple/bronze color. I usually wear a size 4 but it wasn't available so I squeezed into the 2. It was a very tight on my breasts, but I am larger in the chest, so. Overall the 4 would have fit me better, but I could still breathe and do almost everything comfortably in the 2. If you're bigger up top, size up. There were some threads loose, but I was the only one who noticed.

Loved this dress!
I received so many compliments on this dress! It is low cut so if you aren't comfortable with that or going without a bra, I wouldn't rent this dress. The fit was pretty true to size. I loved this dress!! The only reason I am giving this a 4 star is because the backup dress had a little hole (good thing I didn't need it) but the size I did wear was sewn a little by the bottom on the deep V. It wasn't noticeable for others but I was for me. Overall, good experience!

I felt comfortable and confident all night!
This dress fit like a glove. I am between a 4 and 6 and though the 4 fit nicely around my waist, my cleavage was popping out too much for my taste so I went with the 6. With a little bit of fashion tape for extra security this dress was so fun and easy to wear for my fiancés birthday. I LOVE this dress and already want to rent it again!

Best customer service!!!!!!
Unfortunately I didn't get to wear the dress because it was damaged on arrival in the size that fit me perfectly. The great thing is that rent the runway has the best customer service, they refunded my card for my rental cost, gave a credit for a future rental and were super apologetic for the whole situation, their customer service is AMAZING! Makes renting again so easy.

The perfect fit for everyone
I wore this dress for a broadway opening and it was perfect! I was choosing between a couple options, and what sold me on this dress was that it looked good on EVERYBODY who rented it. I thought that was safe for me to rent, knowing my chances of it fitting right were high. I'm tall with a long torso and small bust, and the dress fit great! The skirt part fit like a high waisted, so the flare started above the belly button. I thought the tightness around the middle was a little longer, but it ended up being fine. I got complements all night and it was so super successful!

It's beautiful! The color is so rich and the sparkle really made it stand out!
The fit runs true to size, I have a larger chest so it didn't require a bra. It was so comfortable, and an absolutely show stopper. I wore this for my bachelorette party and I'm glad I did!!

I love love love this dress and got so many compliments! It has pockets which is great and fit like a glove. The pic doesn't show it, but the dress is great on the boobies, holds them up and perky (my husband loved it lol). Perfect for a rehearsal dinner or causal wedding! Would def rent again!

Amazing bachelorette party dress!
I rented this for my bachelorette party Halloween weekend in Las Vegas and it was a big hit. I received so many compliments and my fiancée loved it when he saw it too. This is definitely a dress I didn't want to return and I'll be looking for it when/if RTR sells it. The dress fit perfectly and the hidden pockets were an added perk. This is a dress I'll rent again!

Perfect for Britney Spears in Vegas
Definitely runs small! I have a large rib cage & was super revealing on the chest - I'm a 34D & they were squished in. Had it not been for Vegas, I would've had second thoughts! Would be best for someone under a C, best with A or B.

Gorgeous dress! Lots of compliments and perfect for special occasion! Sexy and classy!
The color is beautiful and the fabric looks expensive! Beware it runs very small on top, the 4 almost didn't fit my top so if you are busty you may need to go up in size. Overall, loved this dress! Very flattering and a good mix of sexy and classy!

Not for anyone with boobs!
I wanted to love this dress. The model looked amazing and I thought I could pull it off for my best friend's Bach in Scottsdale. Unfortunately not. It was way longer in person and the bust has NO give. It squished my boobs flat giving me a weird cleavage but flat profile. The best thing about it was the color.

Did not wear
I didn't wear this dress because the terrible weather in my state made UPS unable to deliver it in time and I decided to go with a long dress instead since it was so cold. But I did get to try this dress on, and it fit perfectly. Just short enough but not too short on my petite frame. The chest area was tight without feeling constricting. And it was not too heavy of a material.

Fun and Flirty - Perfect Holiday Wedding Dress!
I rented this dress for a wedding in December and absolutely LOVED it! I received many compliments from guests and my boyfriend adored the dress. I wish I owned it! It's a bit tight around the rib cage but otherwise fit like a glove. It was my first time wearing anything by opening ceremony. I have a petite frame and it is sometimes hard to find dresses that accentuate my curves. This dress was perfect. The waist was tight and the flare made my legs look extra long. Would rent again!

Fit perfect! Looked awesome for homecoming!
I ordered the dress late and was originally planning on wearing a 6 but there weren't any left so I went with a 4 and while it was kinda tight, it looked amazing. But what really surprised me was the chest area, I had read the comments and knew it was going to be low cut and I was worried about the bra situation (I'm not used to going braless with 32DD's) but, I was happily surprised that the dress itself provided enough support with the tighter chest area that it held everything together better than expected! Would definitely recommend this dress!!!

Fit like a glove
I rented this dress for a girl's weekend in Las Vegas. I was going in between the 2 and the 6 because my true size of a 4 was not available. It just fit perfectly snug and looked great. I would definitely rent this dress again in a 2.

I loved how easy it was and I plan to rent this dress again among others
It fit nice and snug and I lived the color, although it's not 100% like the picture it looked more brown in real life. The only issue is that the black fabric on the inside kept sliding out and I had to keep tucking it in

Compliments All Night Long!
I wore this to a wedding reception and absolutely loved it; the perfect dancing dress! I was worried the 2 looked short on my torso, but was reassured it looked fine. I didn't try on the 4, but it probably would have been too big in the chest/shoulders with how the 2 fit. I'm definitely on the smaller chested side and didn't worry about the low cut or the bra, but it is meant to be (tastefully) revealing. The metallic in the dress is subtle, so if you're not looking to upstage the bride, but love sparkle, this is the dress! Plus pockets are always a win.

Didn't wear but v pretty
I got an overworn dress unfortunately and the lining in the back shoulders and hem were hanging out. But it is worth the risk of this if you have a back up option. The sparkle is perfect and The fit is superb like all the opening ceremony items I've worn. A note- there is no stretch to this dress. By the photos I assumed t was stretch. May try to get this again & hope for a better condition. it's a very pretty color for winter type occasions a pretty pale purplish glistening snowflake of a dress. Magical.

Sexy dress, fits like a glove
This is an awesome dress - it is a beautifully unique rose gold color. I wore it for a concert with a leather jacket - it is easy to dress up or down! The dress is very structured and snug around the chest and torso area - i had to size down because my usual size was unavailable and it was hard to get the dress on and off, there is absolutely no give in the fabric. I felt SO sexy in the dress and got compliments all night.

Cheapest yet best dressed
The fabric used for this dress is super stretchy and comfy. I️t runs large around the waste and was longer than expected. I️t was a very low cut lower than expected so I️ wore a bralette to help cover. Overall I️ managed to look very nice for my junior year homecoming.

The perfect fit and a New Year's Eve hit!
I am 5'1, 120 and I wore a size 2. I thought this looked more copper colored online and it was more pink in person which I liked. I did not wear a bra and felt very secure, but if you're bigger on top this might not be the best choice. Runs true to size and a little tight on top which worked for me! Will look for other styles by this designer.

Compliments all night!
Pictures do not do this dress justice - the color and sparkle are even more stunning in person. I normally wear a 2 but I ended up wearing the 0 I got as a backup and I loved the fit. The neckline is a LITTLE low, but for me personally it didn't pose a problem. This dress was super comfortable and perfect for dancing the night away! I would highly recommend.
