I wore this dress for a fancy nighttime party at my husband's job.
I also recommend sizing up one size, I usually wear a 6 or 8 in dresses and I wore the 10 in this one. I say that with the caveat that the 8 wasn't available so I didn't get to see how it would have fit. but the 10 was comfortable and flattering. The material is really thin almost mesh-like, with a thicker more opaque layer underneath the main body of the dress (the last inch or two of the hem is sheer mesh, it has sequins but no underlayer). You can wear a regular bra with this dress, which was nice. The material was very light and easy to wear, not heavy at all like a lot of sequined dresses are. I personally found the sequins irritating under the arms but not as badly as some other sequined dresses I have worn in the past. I wore a full length shaping slip underneath, I've had two kids so...it is not a supportive material, for what it's worth. This was my first rent the runway purchase and I will definitely be using it again, this dress was great quality and material and fit exactly like I expected based on the description and reviews by others. I am 5'8, 150 lbs, hourglass figure, 32dd.
