The dress made a statement at my company holiday party. It was a Hit!!!

The dress initially looked matronly but once you put it on it changes!

My first RTR dress and I was really impressed!

Dress a super comfortable and really made the night a success. The only issue I had was that it was pretty long on me since I am pretty short. It was really a show stopper for my work holiday party that was a 1920s theme. I received compliments all night long!

Felt like Michelle Obama rocking this look.

I was asked to wear silver as a personal attendant in a friend's wedding. I rented this and another dress thinking this would be my least favorite of the two. Totally wrong. It fit wonderfully, was extremely comfortable, and I got compliments all night. Loved it! I'm about 5'7" so it sit right around my knees which was great for a fall wedding.

Perfect for New Years!

This dress was so beautiful and flattering! I got tons of compliments, and it was super sparkly and beautiful and really appropriate for New Years Eve. I got an 18 and a 20, and both fit and looked really cute, but the 20 was slightly bigger in the shoulders (basically there wasn't a huge difference between sizes, but they ran pretty true). I'm a 40DD and I was glad to be able to wear any kind of bra. I'm really tall and it was about knee length on me, so I imagine it would be quite long on some people. The sequins weren't the scratchiest I've ever had, but I did get a little sequin burn on my arms. A small price to pay! I loved this dress, it reminded me of a disco ball and the night sky!

Classy and Sparkling

Rented this dress for a work party in a really nice venue. I usually wear a size 14/16 and the 14W fit perfectly. It was a modest length (just hit past my knee cap) and I'm 5'3". It's hard for me to find sheath dresses that fit my pear shape but the stretch in the dress allowed enough wiggle room for my bottom! I love it and would definitely consider renting it again in the future.

Great dress for work formal event.

This dress was a perfect rental dress. Only would want to wear it once as everyone would remember this dress. Photographed well and hid my mid section, which I always worry about. Rented the earrings as well!

Sparkly Dress Shined at Gala

I looked great, felt great, and the dress had a lot to do with it. The lining is a nice knit material, soft and stretchy, but not like spanx. True to size, maybe a little large, but I have big breasts and prefer a looser fit. Any time you where sequins, you're going to get a little scratchy in the armpits, but this wasn't so bad.

Perfect sparkles for a black tie event

This dress was super cute and forgiving. It was navy, which came as a pleasant surprise to me. The only downside that I experienced was that the underside of my arms had sequins digging into them. But I definitely could get past that for how cute this dress was. Fit perfectly, though I normally would wear a size larger.

What a sparkly way to ring in the new year!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress. I wore it to our annual NYE party and it did. It disappoint. It was true to size and showed off all of my curves perfectly. It was easy to dance and move around in. My hair did get caught on the sequins throughout the night but it wasn't that big of a deal. I got lots of compliments from my friends and my husband especially loved it.

Loved the sparkle! Dress was comfortable and FUN!

This dress was my first to rent, and I was very pleased with the experience. It arrived in a convenient bag, on a hanger, ready to wear. I am a short, curvy woman, so I was concerned that it may not fit. It DID! Comfortably!! Of course I am a firm believer in Spanx, and with it the dress wasn't tight or improper. As far as the color, some reviewers said it was a navy background, but looked black to me. Depending on the light. In other words, black shoes are appropriate.

Cute, runs big

This was my first RTR dress and it was great! I normally wear a 14 and so I ordered the 14 and 16 as the backup and both were big. The 14 was wearable, but I would have preferred the 12. It had a nice stretch to it so it was comfortable! The overlay stayed in place, which was nice. The length was below my knee (I'm 5'3"). Only minor complaint was by the end of the night my underarm was a little sore from rubbing against the sequins, but that's to be expected and it wouldn't be a reason to not rent it again!

Size down!

I rented this for a November wedding; I selected a size 16W and 18W for back-up. Although the 16W fit, it was quite big and I wished I had gotten the 14W as my backup. I suggest getting whatever size you typically wear, and then one size smaller for your backup. Also, be mindful of your height! The dress was very long as I am very short-- had to wear slightly higher heels to make up the difference. The dress is comfortable, aside for minor irritation from the back of the arms rubbing on the sequence. Received several compliments during the course of the night--- overall, a successful rent.

I loved this dress and how it made me feel!

It fit great, I have a big bust and was worried that it wouldn't fit. It really sparkles and looks great in photos. I received many compliments throughout the night. The sleeves didn't bother me to much, nothing too bothersome. This dress wasn't my first pick but I fell in love with it as soon as I put it on!

This dress screams, let's dance!

Great dress, but found it a bit too "blingy" for my occasion. In the 20W, it was a bit more comfortable and not quite so clingy, and for the right event would have been just the thing. There are a lot of sequins on this dress, you may lose a couple along the way.

This dress is beautiful!!!

I normally wear A Line dresses, so I was a little worried about the shape, but it was so flattering and I got a lot of compliments on it. I normally wear an 18, but it recommended the 20, and I was glad that I went with the larger size because it made the fit perfect.

It was a fun event, great holiday party for corporate work.

The dress was comfortable and fun. Lots of compliments. It is stretchy enough to dance in. I am apple shaped so a good bra is essential.

Perfect for a night out on the town in Vegas!

This dress really surprised me. In the pictures, it does not necessarily look sexy which was the look I was going for so I wouldn't normally have picked it but the sales associate helping me recommended I try it. It was great! The dress hugged my curves perfectly and the low back was a beautiful touch. It actually looked sexy but with a conservative twist! I thought it ran between true to size and slightly small. I would definitely rent this again.

This dress was amazing. Very comfortable. Received many compliments.

I was nervous since this was my first time trying RTR. My second dress choice was this same dress but in a bigger size since I didn't know what would fit. Unfortunately, there was an last minute issue with that one and they sent a completely different dress which was pretty but too short. Thankfully this dress fit perfectly and was happy I decided to go with it.

Had my eye on this for a while!

I was notified by RTR that the original dress that I picked for my birthday was not available in my original size (they still sent the backup size), so I was able to pick two additional styles to try... So since I had my eye on this one for a while I figured what better time to try it? The dress fit awesome and would have been my choice for the night, but decided that the sequins were a bit too much for Hibachi with Friends... will definitely rent for a fancier occasion!

Stylist Review

This is a lovely sparkly dress!! by Adrianna Papell This dress is perfect for a night out with the girls, date night or for an elegant event. This dress runs pretty true to size, I am hourglass shaped and dress was a little big in the hips and waist so if looking for a tight fit would suggest ordering a size down as a back up. This dress would be nice paired with chandelier earrings and cute clutch and nice pumps.

Beautiful, below-knee dress

I wore this to a banquet dinner, it was a little more formal than the dinner called for but oh well. I paired it with a black suit jacket, but who knew it'd be 70 in Cleveland in February! Pretty dress, it hits below the knees (I'm 5'8). I didn't really like the length, would've preferred it to be shorter, but this was a dress sent as a backup when the original dresses sent didn't fit at all.

This dress fit great.

It fit my 38I boobs. That is a feat. I got compliments from total strangers. I had trouble with dresses in the past but this one was great. It was a perfect length.

Shine bright!

Typically, I wouldn't wear a dress so spangly, but this dress was amazing and I would wear it again. The dress is more of a navy than black. It fit very well, and I received many compliments on it. It was easy to sit in and dance in.

The dress fit but I felt more comfortable in the 16W. So, this size was not worn.

The hanger was broken when dress arrived.

Sparkling in the City!!!!

Fit really well and I feel like its pretty true to size. Hit me nicely at the knee and I am 5'9 I got a lot of compliments, its a beautiful dress and very comfortable. Small caution, its a bit difficult to zip alone, you will have to get creative.

Great dress for a formal event. I felt confident and comfortable all evening.

Dress is comfortable with a bit of stretch. Great color and silhouette. Hikes up when sitting and sequins scratch under arms. Overall an outstanding dress!

Wore to nephew's wedding

Flattering, comfortable, and true to size. I am just shy of my 60th birthday, almost 5'4, 170 lbs, 38FF, and would be reasonably proportional if I were two cup sizes smaller. I was able to wear a standard bra and did not need a shaper (not that I would have worn one, I don't have the patience any longer!) Covered my knees, too. The sequins did not itch; however, my bracelet caught on them occasionally, as to be expected with sequins and so forth. I would have bought this had I anywhere else to wear it.
