Rented for a party at a casino....DISASTER
The dress was too big...DOES NOT FIT WELL. I wear a 16 and the 14 swamped me! I ended up not even wearing the dress but didn't try it on in enough time to return it for an exchange. The dress was nice quality, and in great shape. For a beaded gown it didn't appear to be missing any bead work and for a rental it was in fabulous condition. However it WAS NOT THE DRESS FOR ME

It was a beautiful dress.
I tried it on and it fit well, but the the lining hung below the hem and it had a very odd pucker at the base of the zipper. It looked terribly frumpy from the back. It also had quite a few threads sticking out of the back.

It was little low cut in the front and I had to pin it in the front, but other than that it was fit to a tee.

I got so many compliments on this dress! It was perfect for a wedding!
It fit well, if you have a large bust it's a little low, but that was easily fixed with some double sided tape. I'm 5'4 and the length was perfect. The sequins do kind of get stuck on stuff like a scarf, but just be careful. Overall a totally wonderful and stunning dress!

Company Christmas party 1 night; 1920s themed wedding & Justin Timberlake concert another night
I absolutely loved this dress and the fit of it. The drape is very flattering. It's got a very deep V in front, so I wore a tank top underneath. It came up a little shorter in the back than I would normally wear, but I felt good in it. My only complaint was that the zipper was a little hard to get up, but other than that, I can't say enough good things about it. I got soooo many compliments on this dress when I wore it, from friends and strangers, and since I posted pics on Facebook, I've had several friends ask me where they can get one. This was my first time renting from Rent the Runway, and the process was incredibly smooth. I'm already planning when I can rent my next dress!

I didn't actually end up wearing this dress
The dress runs a little big, but definetly short. I noticed it felt a little worn.... My husband didn't care for it either and felt it looked a little cheap. I was disappointed because the picture makes it look so fun!

Unfortunately I didn't wear this because it was too small
I ordered this for my annual Christmas party and unfortunately the 16W was too small - even though that's my usual size. It looked very pretty though and I was sad not to wear it.

All the compliments on my outfit!
Super comfortable dress!! I had to pin the bust, just like many others, in spite of the fact that I'm a 40D. But the girls looked great! Was able to wear a normal bra, which is always a plus for comfort! I wore the long gown for the first part of a Gala, and then switched to the cocktail length once the dancing started. I got compliments right and left, which made the night even more fun.

Wore this to a disco themed holiday party for my work. AWESOME statement dress- tons of compliments!
A teensy bit short, but not enough for it to be a problem, especially for my casual office. TONS of compliments, and you don't need a strapless bra, which is always a plus. True to size and extremely flattering. Prepare to turn heads in this one!

Sparkle sparkle fun!
The dress is nice and sparkly. Perfect for a bachelorette party. About the dress fit: The top is big. I wore a 14w and wear a 40DDD/F and it kept revealing my bra. I personally didn't care because I was wearing a sash, but it was still annoying. The waist band was a little snug, but nothing uncomfortable.

While taking engagement pictures on the streets of Brooklyn I felt glamorous and SO fancy!
I got both a 16W and 18w and ended up wearing the 18 but only because the zipper of the 16 was a struggle and kept getting stuck. Like other reviews said, I did pin the bust area a little bit because a lot of cleavage showed and I wore it foe our engagement pictures. Random strangers stopped me to compliment the dress and I felt beautiful!

The photo doesn't do this dress much justice - it is way more beautiful in person
This dress is definitely a stand out. It is quite forgiving - it has a subtle stretch. However, it is quite short - especially if you have fluffy posterior (like me). Despite being scandalously short, it looks very classy. You won't be disappointed.

This was worn for a costume ball at a conference.
This dress fit so well and had so much sparkle to it! The straps on the arms were a little loose and there is a good deal of cleavage, but other than that, it fit amazingly well and was roomy enough that it didn't require Spanx. Normally I would order a 16 from the regular sizing in the Badley Mischka line of items, but chose this one since that size wasn't available. It definitely worked just fine and I highly recommend it!

great comfortable sparkly dress perfect for my cousin's black tie wedding
The sequins didn't rub nor hurt arms all night. Very booby, and you could see my bra, I needed to safety pin in the front, took about 10 tries to get it right, and needed to keep an eye out so you didn't see the pin all night. Would rent this dress again. Recommended to get a spray tan before so you don't look washed out.

I got so many compliments and felt like a movie star!
This dress fit pretty true to size. I normally wear an 18, and that size fit me better, but since it was on the short side I went with the 20 as it offered a little more length (however, I am 5'11-- well above the average height for a woman, thus I am used to things being too short). It is very low cut but flattering on the chest and all over. I didn't even get sequin burn! The stretchiness of the fabric allows easy movement, making it easy for me to dance the night away. I was concerned that the gold color would wash me out as I'm a pale girl, but they were a very warm color and it looked absolutely beautiful. I got just tons of compliments and felt like a million bucks. I wore it with a berry lipstick, hot pink clutch, and some RTR jewelry and sparkled and shimmered and had an amazing time. I can't wait to rent this dress again someday!

Beautiful dress worn to a beautiful wedding!
This is the third time I have rented this dress, this being the third color that I've rented. This was not my favorite color, I prefer the rose gold color - I felt a little like a Golden Globe, which isn't the worst thing in the world. Even though this dress {in general} is by far my favorite RTR dress I have rented, this particular dress {size 16w} was not the greatest. The last dress I rented, I had rented a 14 & 16w and ended up wearing the 16w; with this dress I never even tried on the 14, {which was my fault}, however, the 16 was missing the top stitch, as you can tell in the pictures - so I was completely busting out, literally. I felt completely uncomfortable throughout the entire night and never even danced. My mother always hand sews in cups when I rent this dress and even with the extra space taken up from those, there was still so much extra room. I would absolutely still recommend this dress to anybody, just double and triple check that you have that stitch up top! Aside from being uncomfortable, I received more than enough compliments to make me feel semi-comfortable.

The dress came in on time and fit perfectly!
I rented this dress for my bachelorette party on Bourbon Street and I will definitely be wearing it!! I shopped and shopped for a dress (of any color) and could not find a single dress that looked good. I was so nervous to rent one, but I'm so glad I did because it is perfect and it is gold (which was my original dream color). I was afraid it would be too long because I'm 5'2," but it is slightly above my knee so I'm fine with that. It's fairly comfortable despite the large amount of sequins. I highly recommend it and I can't wait to wear it!!

All the awesome comments received because of the dress from total strangers!
Dress fit perfectly except for the bust as you can tell in one of the photos. I had it delivered to my vacation spot and did not have any pins to keep the bust area together as that was the only issue I had with the dress...the gaping of the bust area. The shoulder straps kept slipping and "the girls" (40DD) were trying to be on full display. We had dinner and sitting at a posh restaurant for a couple of hours, the dress was comfortable and roomy. Walking around New Orleans, the dress garnered many compliments, cat calls and beads from total strangers. The dress helped me feel very special on my 50th birthday celebration and grateful my daughter told me about RTR and I read the reviews so knew what to expect when the dress arrived. I would rent the dress again but would bring ions or double sided tape to keep it all together.

I worn this for my bachelorette party.
I absolutely loved this dress! I received many compliments on the dress. Like everyone else has said, I did need to use a safety pin to keep the front pinned so my girls weren't hanging out. I'm glad I ordered 2 dresses because one of the zippers was really hard to zip on one of them.

I wore it to a fancy dinner night out on the town with friends. It really made me feel glamorous.
It fit nicely but it was scratchy around the armholes. The back also was a bit shorter than the front. But it was really a gorgeous dress. I would recommend it!

Wore this for my bachelorette party in NOLA. It was a showstopper and so comfy!
I'm a size 14 and the 14W ran large. I was able to slip the dress on without even having to unzip it. It was really comfortable and I loved that I could wear a regular bra with it. However, like many have said, the bust is very roomy and revealing. I ended up pinning it closer together for a a little bit of modesty. I'm 5'0" so the dress hit at my knees. For a more formal occasion, the length would have been perfect and classy, but since this was my bachelorette, I wanted it a little shorter. I pinned it up to mid thigh and it was just right.

Center of attention, in a good way!
This dress hits a little farther up on the body that I would have preferred, because my rib cage is quite a bit larger than my natural waist. The tightness wasn't noticeable visibly, and was only a mild discomfort. If I had the option of the 22 I think I might have chosen it over the 20, because on top of it being a little snug, the dress was quite short with my 5'9 frame in 4" heels. In person, the dress isn't quite as flashy as in photographs, but is just sparkly enough to draw eyes. If you have sensitive skin, you might want to be careful because after about 5 hours, the backs of my arms were a bit tender from the sequins. Basically if you can put up with mild discomfort (way less than the 4" heels did me) and wearing spanks or some sort of modesty shorts underneath, this dress is a killer if you have a flair for the dramatic and flashy. All in all, I'm so happy with this dress and my first experience with RTR. The dress (and backup, and earrings I also rented) came in a very nice, organized garment bag sent straight to my door. As long as you can follow simple instructions, returns are a breeze.

All that glitters IS gold. So sparkly. Wasn't scratchy on arms. It was a great length & comfortable
It is a rich gold almost brass like. The fabric is forgiving. Stretchy and thick so the sequins aren't felt. Standard bra works but definitely something with push up. Busty girls are in luck. This also was a great dancing dress. Easy to move in and doesn't cling or wrinkle. Loved it. Looks great in person and in photos. Going to get this in a different color for the next event.

Loved this dress, got lots of complements!
I wore this dress this past weekend for my bachlorette party and it was perfect for the occasion. I got lots of complements and I really stood out. The only thing that I didn't like was that the chest area was too open and I had to use a safety pin in order to keep it in place but other then that the dress was true to size.

Great cocktail dress to add a little sparkle
I thought the dress ran big. I wished there was a smaller size, but the cut is very flattering so it didn't matter all that much. The neckline is very flattering on everyone. I really loved it. But since it was big, it pulled away from my body a little bit giving me little more boobage than I planned on. Overall, it was a great dress for a great night!

Pros: comfortable, flattering, got lots of compliments. Cons: a bit large in the bust, and short in the back ( I have a larger backside, people with a normal sized bottom shouldn't have any problems) I wish I was able to size up, because of the length in the back, but the size 20 wasn't available.

I'm the Sweetheart of a fraternity, wore this to their formal. I was definitely the queen.
I normally wear a 14, but ended up ordering a 16 because that was the only size left on such short notice. It fit a little big, as expected, but it was totally fine. 10/10 would rent again (in the right size). Only thing I think anyone ordering this dress should note is that it will look better if you have a fuller bust (mine weren't quite big enough to fill in the dress effectively so I turned to a super padded push up bra) and it is pretty short (I'm 5'3" and it was even short). The length was fine since I was wearing spandex, but just be wary. Like other people, I ended up pinning the boob region so my bra didn't show.

The gold color was so flattering & really spectacular in person!
I loved this dress but it is VERY low cut & I had to wear a cami under it which took away from the sparkle. Thankfully I wore this to a murder mystery party for a show girl costume & had a big feather boa to hide all the cleavage.. LOL! Other than that I loved the fit & style of the dress. The color is gorgeous too

This was for my bachelorette party, I received so many compliments all night on this dress!
I am tall (6'0) so I was a little worried about the length, but it was perfect! It ran very true to size and fit like a glove.The dress was super comfortable, I didn't feel the sequins, and the material was a bit stretchy. It is a little low cut, which was fine for my event. I loved everything about this dress! It made me feel amazing at my bachelorette party!

Loved this! I wore it during a long weekend to Vegas with my husband and friends for a night out.
Runs true to size. It's a bit stretchy and the back hem felt a little shorter than the front. The front is a pretty deep V which I liked but a bit of dress tape helped keep the girls in place. I got lots of compliments in it. Way sparkly and a gorgeous gold color. Super fun to wear.

I felt like I was attending an awards show.
I am a 16/18. Bra size 42F. Dress fit perfectly. Ordered an 18 originally but the too was a tad bug. Loved every moment of this dress.

It was a bachelorette party at a super swanky hotel, it was amazing.
I actually had my heart set on a different dress and this was my alternate. I was so happy I had this as an alternate, I tried it on in front of my friends and they were completely amazed with how good it looked. It ran a little big, the bust area had to be pinned together because the edges of my bra kept peeking out. And the arm holes were a little on the large side. This was a much more flattering dress than I had thought it would be, I would highly recommend it!

Loved, loved, loved the fit of the dress, made it easy to put on and easy to dance in!
For large busted women, it's a great dress! I had to pin the cleavage part, because it was a little too revealing for my liking, but it was great either way!
