My outfit was perfect for this formal event. I am also glad that I rented the handbag and earings.
I loved the coverage of the sleeves and the sparkle on the dress. I received a number of compliments and would definately wear the dress again!

I never feel that I look nice, but I felt wonderful in this dress!
I wear an 18, but just in case, I also ordered the size 20. However the 18 was perfect. It fit well, was the right length and had sleeves, which I really wanted. The dress arrived as promised, on time and I only needed to put it on. It was perfect for a wedding! And the return process couldn't have been easier.

The dress fit well though a little large. Very comfortable fabric. The color is more blue than the image online. I would highly recommend this dress for any cocktail party or other dressy event.

Dress was comfortable. Frosted sequins gave it just the right amount of shimmer for the occasion. Would rent it again

It was so easy to use Rent the Runway! I'm happy my friend recommended it to me!
I ordered the dress in the 18, after reading many reviews of the dress I decided to order the second dress at a size smaller, 16. I ended up wearing a 16. The dress is very comfortable! I had many compliments on the dress, and I feel good wearing it. I appreciated all the extra review & input from the other renters, finding out that it is actually a navy blue dress versus the black that it appears in the model picture was extremely helpful in making my decision! I highly recommend the dress, and I highly recommend reading all reviews under each dress you may potentially rent. The input is so helpful and helps make a fantastic decision for you. One of my favorite features of rent the runway.

This dress is navy. Not overly sparkly. I felt comfortable and "covered" in it. Easy to sit and bend in it. I would love to wear it again!

glamorous and classic
this dress was fantastic!! I really cannot say enough about it. I am pretty tall (5'9" barefoot) so I thought it might be too short, but it hit just above the knee and was a modest length for a formal holiday event at my work. I also felt sexy enough to wear it out after the work party ended. I was incredibly comfortable all night long. Bonus was that the sleeves looked gorgeous without ever feeling matronly. I was worried they might be tight (they are not!) or look "old" but they looked lovely with the dress. It's a true navy, though the model photo looks black. And it really stands out in person. so keep in mind you will get second looks and compliments! I loved this dress and had no complaints!

It was definitely roomy enough that you could eat, drink, dance, and just generally be merry without worrying about clinging or unflattery-ness lol.

I felt like a rockstar in the dress, everyone was saying how pretty it was.
The fit was very much true to size. It was a tad itchy on the arms, but that is to be expected with lace and sequins.

Quick turn around time with orders!
I ordered this beautiful dark blue dress for a formal wedding on Tuesday afternoon and it was here by Friday afternoon. The dress does run a little big, but by the end of the evening I had no regrets knowing I was comfortable all night long. #pittsburghcookietable #wedding #firsttimeRTR

This one didn't fit my body quite right. It was a backup in case my first choice didn't fit.
The dress was very well made and felt comfortable. I liked the use of matte sequins. The lace mesh sleeves are a good option for transitional weather, and I liked that they were a good length for my short arms.

Compliments, Sparkle and Comfort!
I had several compliments on this dress; it was a very pretty deep blue color, and it was very comfortable. It ran just a bit big, but that was ok with me since I had to do a lot of moving around and sitting. I didn't mind the extra room! I would highly recommend this dress. I promise you will have people notice it, because there is nothing else like it in the room!

Sparkled under the lights
Great fit and comfortable to wear. I got lots of compliments. It was a pretty color and dark enough that I could wear with black shoes. I was on stage at the formal event I attended and everyone said it was the best dress on the stage.

Sorry I don't have a full length photo - and it was really hot so I look limp. Dress was great.
The dress was great - midnight blue, not black. The sequins were not as sparkly as the site photos, which was fine, but just know they don't stand out that much. I had the 16W also and could have worn that, but the 18W felt more comfortable.

Not what I was hoping for!
Too long and big and felt heavy for the weather. Not as sparkly as the photos looked and a little too mature looking style for me.

Wore this to an annual Gala event.
The fit was great, very comfortable, I had worn this designer's dresses before and fit was similar. The sleeves were light, comfortable. I was concerned it might be too warm with sleeves (in Houston!) but it was fine. I got lots of compliments. I ordered the 18 as backup but the 16 was perfect. The navy blue was a nice change from the usual black dress. I would do this again!

Quite elegant.
This dress was very comfortable . A 14W fit while a 16 in another style did not. If you have a full bust, go for the W size. but you can't request them online - you have to select a dress and then view the sizes

Snug in the tummy
I liked the dress a lot, but it was a bit snug in the tummy area for me> it is definitely navy blue, not black. it has some stretch, which makes it comfortable.

Very expensive looking.
The dress fit very well and made me feel good. I ordered a 16 W and an 18W because I wasn't sure which would fit better. The 16W was great . It was even a tad bigger, but it was comfortable. The only problem was the sleeves sometimes got caught onto the sides of the dress. I received a lot of compliments. I also rented the silver clutch, the earrings and the bracelet. My only complaint is that the 4 thin bracelets wouldn't go over my hand, so I didn't wear them. I was able to wear the 4 wider bracelets & they looked great.

I haven't had the event yet, but I LOVE this dress.
I will be wearing this dress to a President's dinner after giving a Baccalaureate address. The 14W was plenty big enough for my 5'7" 200lb frame, without needing any support. The pix are me trying it on right out of the box. Sleeves are a nice length. I know others have said not to wear with black shoes, but I tried it one with mine and it looks just fine. I'm pleased. I look like a grownup, but not like a grandma.

Didn't wear it.
The dress runs big ... I was sent at 16W, which should've fit me (and might've been a little snug in the arms), but it was falling off my shoulders. It, also, looks black on the website, but is actually a very dark blue.

I felt beautiful in this dress.
The dress was a little roomy in the waist but was a perfect fit in the hip area. (I have a little bigger booty than average.) Tons of compliments all night. It was not scratchy at ll as some sequin dresses tend to be.

Stylist Review!
This was a pretty great style! The color is, actually navy, not black. But it is a great substitute for a black dress. The sequins are a lot of fun and not overwhelming. The length is great and the fabric has some stretch to it. It's very easy to move around and would be great for a wedding. It wouldn't hinder your ability to dance through the night! The lace is very comfortable as well!

Great fitting. Beautiful dress with light shimmer.
I normally wear size 18W; however, based on other reviews, I also ordered one size down, 16W. The size 18W dress fit well, but it looked unshapely on my body type. Thankfully, this was resolved by wearing 16W. Many compliments all night.

Comfortable and elegant.
The dress has simple construction making it easy to wear. It had a little stretch so it was easy to sit and cut a rug on the dance floor. Great length and color. The Navy color was gorgeous but it didn't complicate the shoe selection. Ultimately found a dark gray that worked but black stood out. Nude was another good option that I tried.

Stand out in a crowd
I received lots of compliments on this dress. It's a little flashy, which was fine for the crowded, nighttime cocktail party I attended, but I would have felt out of place if it was a brightly lit work party or something similar.

Planned to wear this for my anniversary dinner...
This dress, while lovely in person (and navy, not black like it looks on the website), is not a short girl's friend. I'm 5'1", and it fell far enough below my knees to make me look shorter and a bit stumpy, which made me look heavier than I am. Also, I feel it runs a bit big, as there was quite a bit of extra room in the midsection, which never happens to me, and the sleeves were a bit loose. Probably ideal for someone 5'5" and taller

Very pretty, fully of sequins, maybe a little too old for a twenty-something
Fit ran a little large. I wore the smaller of my two sizes and didn't even need to unzip to get the dress on, but it looked beautiful. Not so many compliments, but no one told my in looked like an old hag or anything either -- went with the flow of a wedding. Hem line is a little long, just below the knee, and there is nothing cutting edge about the neckline. A classy, conservative look. If I wore it again I would hem it.
