Amazing

I've been dying to wear this dress for about a year and final was able to rent it for my sorority's semi formal. It fit great and it was everyone's favorite dress of the night. One guy said, "This is the best dress of the night. It's like you're classy with the black but also here to party with the gold." If you're looking to impress or just for a really fun dress, this one is the way to go.

Perfect Birthday Dress!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for my 22nd birthday party and I loved every minute of it! The dress looks loose on the model but it is in fact very fitting and very slimming. I felt great all night. The only annoying thing about wearing this dress is the straps that are used to hang the dress always come out. You have to keep tucking them in but it was such a fun dress to wear! It's a good dress for people with curves.

Amazing Dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I received both a 6 and an 8 because sometimes you never know how the fabric will fit. The 8 fit fine, but the zipper kept bunching up. When I tried the 6, it was snug, but perfect. I didn't have to keep pulling it up all night or anything. I wore this for a chic fashion fund-raising event that my company was putting on, and I received great compliments.

Loved this dress. The 4 was a little tight on me, but the 6 was perfect. I wore this to my company Christmas party and got a ton of compliments. Its flashy and fun without being over the top, and super comfortable. The side zipper occasionally would pooch out a little but it wasn't anything major. Stays up, never slid down like some strapless dresses. Would totally rent again!

NY EVE dress

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was amazing, it was my first time renting from RTR and they did not disappoint. I got so many compliments through the entire night and the dress fit perfectly. I would tell anyone to rent this dress you will definitely get noticed. The dress was a little loose in the bust but the double sided tape that RTR sent fixed that problem.

generally happy with it

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am generally a size 2 or 4 and I rented the size 4. It fit, but barely (which is why I stated that it runs small). Overall, I was happy with the dress and it is definitely a "statement." However, it did have some issues. First, it seemed a bit worn and I agree with the prior reviews that the hanger straps were problematic. I fixed it with dress tape, but it was annoying. Also, the dress kind of pooches out on the left so I felt like I had to constantly pull the dress down although I was probably the only one to notice it. It doesn't fit the way it looks on the model - she must a complete waif because it is much more tight fitting. I was glad I rented it and happy with the experience, and I got a ton of compliments on it.

Not a great fit

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered this for a Cocktail party for a Bar Mitzvah. It came and I quickly tried it on. The problem is the side zipper puckered outward and looked like I had a bulging hip on one side. I quickly called RTR and they couldn't of been nicer and more accommodating. They immediately sent me a different dress which fits perfectly. I can't wait to have another affair to go to and use RTR. I also would suggest speaking to a stylist there as they do guide you.

Not good for me

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am 5'1", and smaller on the top than on the bottom. The 0 was an ok fit, but the 2 was huge. Also the zipper on the size kept bunching up. Luckily, I had ordered a backup dress, and I ended up wearing that because the zipper situation made my hips look twice as big!

Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this for my daughter's Sweet Sixteen Hollywood Theme party as her second dress to change into. It was more beautiful then the picture. It fitted her to the tee. Everyone loved it. She made her grand entrance in a long Red and Silved ballgown and change into this dress to party in. I must say that I as well as her was very pleased. We will rent again.

Great Dress!

Needed a dress for my 25th birthday in Vegas, and this was it! Beautiful dress! It seemed that the size was larger than I expected. Usually a 4, but the 2 fit the best. Best thing though, is that you can get both sizes, just in case! Also they send a prepackaged envelope to put the dresses in which makes it super easy to return! Just find a blue post office box, and you're set! Great experience!

I LOVED this dress! It was perfect for my birthday dinner and party with friends! I felt amazing with this dress on. I paired it with a leather jacket and gold sequins pumps. I didn't want to give it back. I wish I took more pictures of me in it but I was so caught up in the night I forgot... But definitely a must rent!!

Great dress!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
The dress was great. Normally, I wear either a 6 or 8; however, I read the previous reviews saying that the dress runs small. So, I rented the 8 and 10. I was swimming in the 10, and the 8 was still really big on me. If I rented the 6, I would have LOVED this dress. Either way, the dress was GORGEOUS! Even more so in person. There were a couple of problems with the boning structure of the dress poking you sometimes. Overall, this dress was great. I wish I got the right size.

This dress was super cute for a work event in Vegas. It was glamorous without being too revealing. I would note that these are NOT vanity sizes, so you should order the next size up from what you might usually wear. Also, if you have any curves, the darts are cut a little bit high. Overall it looked great, but I would make sure you order two sizes the smaller one being a size larger than you normally wear anyway.

love the dress. Got so much complement for the dress. I got a size 0 and 2 and both are in very good condition with no beads coming out or torn fabric. I ended up wearing size 0, it was a bite loose on the bust, but all over very nice dress. It was a statement piece for sure.

Very cute and very comfy!! I wore this dress to my niece's HS Graduation party and received so many compliments all night long - many from her girlfriends! I paired it with black patent peep-toe Louboutins, which were a perfect compliment. As a busty girl, the size 2 was perfect in the chest, but a little loose in the bodice/hips and the darts gave it an odd pooch that probably wouldn't happen if it were tight-fitting overall (but I think I'm the only one who paid that much attention). Overall, I truly loved it though and can't wait to rent again!

Beautiful dress, but too small for busty women

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress was so cute and beautiful, but it was way too small on the top. It has straps inside to help hang it on the hanger, but they definitely wouldn't fit around anyone's bust bigger than a C. I have a DD and could zip it up until it got to my chest!! Still a really cute dress though, but anyone but a bust, size 10 or larger I don't think it would fit! My friend ended up wearing it though and she is a size 6!

Perfect little dress for my company's Monte Carlo themed party. Just enough skin showing without being volgur. Hugged every curve so don't eat a big meal before you put the dress on. Was very forgiving, nothing special needed not even a strapless bra. Ton's of compliments, easy to find accessories and shoes to match. Would definitely recommed if you aren't trying to be over the top but still be fitting to party.

This is a PARTY dress! It was my second choice of 2 dresses I chose for a formal event, but the length was too short. I would definitely rent it again for a NYE party or birthday bash! SO flattering and fun. I would wear some intense smokey eye makeup, nude/natural lips, and either black or nude heels. Most definitely on my radar for the next party I go to!

New Years Eve 2012

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress has a huge pooch on the left side by the zipper. I had to constantly pull on it. Someone else had mentioned it in a comment so you would've thought they corrected this problem. It was my first time to rent and dress and the dress itself is beautiful. My only reservation is they aren't paying attention to feedback about quality and fit or they would've fixed it. Only other problem is the hanger straps keep popping out while dancing. You can't cut them like I normally would so next time I'd tape them down. The dress itself was hot!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
ordered as my back up. i have wide hips and a small waist and i found this hard to get on. once on, it fit ok, kind of tight. the biggest turn off was how the sequined design in the middle by my waist didn't mold to my body and stuck out like an awkward bulge. other than that, it was cute, but my first choice looked better. wish i would have taken a picture.

There was a noticeable bulge on the left hip area of the size 4, in the black fabric between the sequined areas. I think if the size 2 would have been sent as well (it was noted that the smaller size was not available) the smaller size would have had a better fit. Ultimately it was something I just couldn't deal with so I didn't wear the dress.

Pretty, but not my fav.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
So, as others have posted, this one has some bunchy areas in the fabric that you can't really fix. It was ok, but not overly flattering. I think it may look better on a taller girl with a bigger chest that my HUGE 32A chest (hahaha!). The quality is decent and it doesn't look cheap at all (which I find to be a problem with many sequin dresses). I needed to go down a size but even then wasn't getting the hour glass look I wanted. I didn't wear this for my event and wouldn't rent again....but it could look really good on the right person.

I didn't end up wearing the dress because the fit was awkward. It was cut straight down and didn't come on at my waist like I thought it would. I would not recommend this for someone with curves! It looked much better on the hanger.
