I would rent this dress again! Comfortable to wear. Short, but not too short. Very glamorous, like a vintage 60's mini.

Hanging with the RTR girls!
LOVE! It's a pretty easy fit and fun when paired with a long necklace. I wore an XS and am usually a 2. Can be styled many different ways to dress it up or down.

How far off the ground did the dress fall? I will be wearing mine in FL - so no snow - and I'm also 5'7" and plan on wearing 3" heels. It is for my engagement photos so I want to make sure to get the right length!! Thank you!! :)

A very flattering dress, even on my short frame. The lining made it stand apart from other sequin dresses and also made it much more comfortable!

I wore this dress on Halloween to dress up as a "gold digger." I accessorized with a shovel around my waist.
Loved this dress. I wore it for Halloween but liked it so much I wanted to rent it again to wear when it wasn't as a custome.

Disco Ball
I rented this dress to wear to my company's Christmas party. It was certainly a showstopper and everyone loved the dress. One thing to note, the dress is short! Especailly if you have long legs! So make sure you know how to sit gracefully and I would advise not bending over to pick things up or lifting your arms high in the air else you risk exposing your bum. Also, the lining is smaller than I expected and fits much tighter than the rest of the dress, but it was not so horrible that it bothered me all night. Other than that I loved the dress. It is a great combination of sassy and classy- loud but not too flashy b/c of the high neck and sleeves. Perfect party dress.

Loved it!
I wore this dress out to a nice birthday dinner and absolutely loved it. I have a little bit of a tummy and thought the shift would cover it, but I needed some Spanx to help.

Oops. A little short.
The gold sequins were perfect for New Year's! I should have paid attention to how "mini" it was. Unfortunately, at 5'6" it rode waaay up my thigh. Although I have nice long legs, it wasn't appropriate for a women of a certain age..

This dress was a hit at my Christmas party. The small was a little snug in the chest so I wore the medium.

Great dress!
Loved it! I got so many compliments on this dress. The sleeves and cut of the dress balance out the loudness of the sequins for a perfect look! The fabric is a bit heavier than usual due to the sequins, and it was a little big at the top, so it didn't seem as fitted as it looked in the photo. Regardless, I was very pleased with this one!

NYE
I ordered and S and M because I was worried about the length-- usually wear a small. I ordered this for NYE and I was slightly disappointed because the gold was intense and I was thinking it would be a more subtle champagne-y hue based on the picture. I also think I was between sizes as the medium looked like a bag on me. The small was a little tight in the shoulders and arms, a little awkward to move in. I wore the small because it looked more like how it looks on the model than how the medium did. Length was good overall, definitely got compliments and it is a fun dress!

Gold Sequined Sheath
I was disappointed when I received the dress. I was looking forward to wearing it to a company's birthday party in NYC and ended up going with my back-up RTR dress (which was perfect). When I unzipped the garment bag, the sequins were already a bit too much for me. I thought the sequins would be a little more muted in color, but the name of the dress is an accurate description. It's a very gold dress. I wear a size 2 top and 4 bottom, so based off the product description and size chart I ordered an XS and S. I could barely fit the S over my head and, once I did get it on, it was not flattering at all. The dress fits more like a sheath than a shift. It was quite baggy on the side and tight in the shoulder and hip area. Overall, it didn't work for me, but still would be a great option for those with maybe a straight & narrow or petite frame.

Overall, the experience was flawless. I had questions about the fit of the dress so I called the customer service number and all of my questions were answered! Everyone commented on how glamorous and classy the dress was...definitely recommended!
I rented this dress for a party and it was absolutely perfect. I am typically a 6 (a 4 on a good day), and the medium fit perfectly. I was comfortable all night dancing. The dress is heavy enough to feel luxurious, but not so much so that you can't move around and enjoy yourself. This is my favorite dress I have rented out of 3 rentals!!!! It's not something I would typically have in my closet, which made it a really fun dress for the evening!

Wear it to get noticed
This dress is amazing. I usually wouldn't wear this type of dress size I have a larger rear and it seems made for very stright-bodied women. However, I couldn't resist. I ordered both a M and L and the M was perfect because it hugged my rear and (with spanx) didn't ride up. I received so many compliments from my friends and strangers. My only cautions are it did sometimes make my stomach look larger than it is, but that is the nature of this non-hugging dress and also the sequins are kind of killer. If you're going to be dancing all night, prepare to have a few war wounds on the insides of your arms. Would totally rent this dress again!

Sparkles!
I wore this dress to a wedding in NYC during the winter. I love the dress, especially on the model. But the high neck on me was not as flattering. I would not rent this style dress again, but that has more to do with what looks good on my shape than the dress. If you can pull off a higher neck, this dress is super cute!

looks great
I loved this dress. I wore it to a casino night and it was a big hit. I normally wear a size 4 and have a bit of a pear shape to me. the underlying layer was a bit tight but the top layer covered it up nicely. the M was way too big.

It was fun to sparkle all night!
It looked very slim through the waist on the model in the picture. I was disappointed that it didn't fit me like her, but then again, I am a 44 year old mom :) I felt like it was a little boxy, but the fun of being so shiny and sparkly all night outweighed that :) I did get LOTS of compliments on it. That is always fun!

I'm a sucker for anything with sequins, but this dress was a little too much for me. Also, the dress gives you no shape.

A little tight so I couldn't comfortable raise my arms but the 2 did fit okay. It was short and very shiny so I thought it was quite appropriate for the fundraiser I was attending but otherwise very cute!

Received many compliments on this dress! It fit kind of large, even the extra small. The arms of the dress were very tight, though. Defiantly will be renting from here for many upcoming occasions! ;)

I definitely made a statement, just not the one I wanted to make.
To be fair, the dress was amazing. However, it was too small and the style of dress was not flattering for someone with my figure. Nevertheless, for all women under a size 8 with small breast, this dress would probably look great on you. However, if you are an average sized girl with big boobs, you may want to pick another dress or you may end up looking like a life size version of Sponge Bob like me :-/

Great standout dress!
I was slightly hesitant to order this dress in fear that the sequins would be overwhelming, but I was wrong! This dress was amazing! The short sleeves and shift fit of the dress offset the sequins and kept it feeling classy. I would love to wear this dress again!

It was not a flattering fit on me at all. I didn't end up wearing it because it looked awful.
I thought this dress looked super cute in the picture. I received the dress and immediately was blinded by the sparkle, which wouldn't have been terrible because I was planning on wearing the dress to Vegas anyways. The dress looked awful on me. I have more of an hourglass figure and it looked tight in the hips and baggy around the middle. I think if you are tall and thin that this dress could be cute, but if you have a figure-definitely stay away!

Odd Fit
I rented this dress as a back up for NYE. After reading the reviews I rented the XS. It was extremely tight on the hips and then big everywhere else. It didn't really flatter me - if I were to rent it again I would go up a size or two so it fit more like a shift dress.

I LOVED this dress. I rented it for a New Year's Eve Party. I really didn't want to send it back!
This dress was really comfortable. I paired the dress with a pair of blue suede heels. The contrast worked so well and I got so many compliments that evening. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Perfect for an over the top NYC wedding in an antique gallery. I loved the dress!
I'm 5"8' so the small fit my body better, but was too short. I wore the medium which is looser & not fitted, but longer.

I thought this dressed fit perfectly although the arms were a bit on the tight side in comparison to the rest of the dress. Overall it was wonderful and I received so many compliments throughout the entire night! Will definitely be using RTR for my next party!

Feeling fabulous on my birthday even with a cast!
It's a little tight in the arms, but not uncomfortable! The small felt a little too small for me, but the medium was definitely too big so I think the fit was just different than I expected! Overall I am SO happy with this rental, I got a ton of compliments and this dress looks amazing in photos!
