Incredible Dress, but...
I ended up wearing the 6R because the 4R was about 3" too short with flats on. If you are 5'5" or taller, go with the longer length. Even with the size 6R, I was still pulling it down all night. Overall, the dress was beautiful. I got a ton of compliments and noticed eyes on me and the dress all night. The 6R was a bit big, but to get the length I wanted, it was what I had to do. If I could go back, I would have preferred a 4 in case he longer length, and I think it would have fit perfectly. Definitely recommend this dress. It was stunning.

Me and my 2 girlfriends all got sequin gowns from RTR and called ourselves the sequin squad!
Fit was as expected. Dress was heavy but I liked the thick lining as I didn't have to wear a bra. Dress was barely long enough, could not wear heels. But I loved the dress and got so many compliments! I will be using rent the runway again! I am 5'11 and 160 lbs.

Form fitting, but not too tight. Dress moves with you when you move.

Beautiful Dress!
I loved this dress, and I felt so elegant in it! The material was stretchy, so the fit was comfortable. I received many compliments, and I thought it was one of the most beautiful dresses in the room! I wore this for a military event for my husband's command, and it was perfect for the event! For reference, I am 5'4" 118lbs, 30B, smaller waisted, and curvier through the booty. The 0R fit spot on!

Perfect for a wedding!!
I'm 5'2, normally an 8. And the 6R was perfect with a 2' heel. I am also a 34DD and didn't wear a bra but it was fine all night. A complete show stopper. Compliments and looks galore. The wedding was at a Tuscan inspired venue and my greens were perfect compliments to everything. I felt comfortable, sexy and happy.

When you walk in a room and realize you have the best dress, that's a great feeling.
Fit like a glove that moved when I did. Couldn't have asked for a better dress. Had to hold the bottom for a little while walking but with 4 inch heels a slower pace is fine.

Holiday Party Perfect!
This dress was perfect for a work holiday party. I ended up wearing my backup size (2L) because the 4R looked a little more "worn" and some of the sequins looked a little rough in places. I actually preferred the more snug fit. The fabric draped in a flattering way, and hugged in the right places, but I did end up wearing spanx to smooth my tummy. Due to the low back, I did opt to go bra-less. I was afraid the 2L would be too long for my 5'4" frame, but it was perfect length with 3inch heels. Kind of scratchy on the arms due to the sequins, but it wasn't too bad. Overall, a fantastic 1st RTR experience.

The dress was gorgeous; the dark green color made it elegant/fancy without being too flashy.
The dress fit very well. It does not run large, it's true to size and maybe runs even a TEENY bit small, because it's actually quite fitted in the butt/hips. The bit of skin right next to my armpits did feel scratchy rubbing against the sequins, but it wasn't unbearable, and they weren't left raw at the end of the night. The dress DOES get a bit hot. I wouldn't wear it for a mid-summer event. I'm 5'3 and still got a 6R because sometimes petite fits don't quite work for me. I did have to wear very high heels, because the dress was long. Finally, if your girls aren't quite...perky, you will need supportive undergarments to give you some lift. I wouldn't recommend going bare with this dress. Overall, it is well-made and the sequins are not the cheap/tacky ones. It looked like an expensive dress. I got tons of compliments and would definitely wear it again!

3 word! PERFECT! PERFECT! PERFECT!
90% PROS! The only con for me was that the zipper kind of bulged out rather noticeably. Other than that, this dress is HIGHLY recommended!

Could not recommend this dress more! It's super flattering and the sequins are not pesky. I wore it to my boyfriends med school formal and got so many compliments - it's form fitting, but still tasteful with a high collar and scoop back. Would rent again in a heart beat.

This dress is drop dead gorgeous. I wish I could have kept it.
My one and only criticism is that I felt the need to adjust the sleeves all night because they felt like they were falling a bit. If I had more time I would have purchased some double sided tape to hold the sleeves on my shoulders.

I received constant compliments while wearing this dress!
This dress has a very flattering fit and allows for it to still look flattering even if it's a size too big or small. My biggest complaint with this dress was the length - I read all the reviews saying it was short and thought it didn't apply to me because I've never considered myself to be a tall person (5'5"). However, the 12R was above my ankles, so I really had to have a good shoe to go with the dress. Overall though, a great dress!!!

The color is so unique and the fit was perfect - soooo many compliments!
The back is gorgeous, and it fit perfectly, but the only drawback was getting some irritation on my inner upper arms where they would brush against the sequins a lot. It was also quite a heavy, hot dress so I overheated a bit dancing in it. But overall, felt like a total princess with the head-to-toe sequins!

Loved it!
I had an issue with my first choice not fitting when it arrived so I zoomed down to the Georgetown store on the morning of my event and they were great! I would never have chosen this dress on my own because, frankly, I don't like the color green but it was perfect! I've used RTR 4 times now and this was, by far, my favorite gown. They do run very small because I'm usually a size 4 and this was an 8, but I felt really beautiful in it. Thank you!

Runs a tad small. If you're doubting getting the long, go for it because even the long is a tad short! I am 5'8 and wished the long was even longer!

This dress was flattering, glamorous, but also comfortable.
The color was stunning and unique, and the sequins were very high quality. The dress was form fitting but slimming, and I was able to get away with wearing no bra or shapewear. I am 5'7 and tried both the 4R and 4L and would definitely recommend the longer length if you hope to wear heels and are 5'5 or taller.

Perfect dress for perfect occasion!
I attended a gala for my children's school and it was right around St. Patrick's Day so I figured the green would be perfect. It was. Got complements all night, including a woman who had hoped to rent it, but was sold out in her size. She picked me out right away! I was able to dance in it, sit, etc..no problems. I ordered the long based on previous reviews and wore about 3" heels with it, perfect. I also paired it w/bangles from RTR. I would LOVE to own this dress, it was just perfect, as was every other dress I've rented so far.

A priest from the wedding next-door complimented my husband on my dress!
This dress fit like a glove! I am 5'9" and wore 4" heels and this dress hit perfectly. I was worried that the sequins would chafe my arms when I moved, but they didn't. And I liked that the shoulders had a bit of padding to keep them from slipping down my arms.

Perfect New Years/Wedding dress
This was my backup dress but it ended up being perfect. I wore it for a New Years Wedding and I got so many compliments on how it was the perfect New Years dress with the elegance and the sequins. The fit worked out well since the dress was actually very stretchy, it molded to my figure instead of gapping like my first choice dress. I definitely had room though, and could have sized down if it existed but no one noticed it being loose. It was a tiny bit long even with 3.5" heels, but the material was heavy enough that I could kick it out of the way as I walked and it didn't catch.

Beautiful dress but...
I ordered this as my backup. I was a little surprised that there was NO stretch whatsoever in this dress. It looked great when on, but it was difficult to get off. It was a beautiful dress but I went with my first choice. I felt that the sequins made this dress heavy so it would be difficult to dance in at the wedding I attended.

Fantastic color and super comfortable
I'm usually a 6 but I read that the dress runs a little large so I ordered a 4 as my backup and I'm glad I did because the 6 was very roomy and the 4 fit like a glove. I wore the dress for almost 8 hours on a 100 degree day in NYC and it was so comfortable I would suggest it to everyone. The only thing I don't suggest is I picked it up at the flagship store in the city so I could try it on before I took it home and it was so crowded I would have had to wait over an hour for a fitting room. Skip the hassle of the subway and just have it delivered to your house.

The dress was beautiful and fit me perfectly. I received so many compliments especially the color and the back of the dress. Without my heels the dress fit the ground, but with them you could see my toes. Overall I really loved the dress and how it fit my curves.

I LOVED this dress. Fit like a glove and I got compliments all night.
This dress fit me well. I am 145 lbs. and 5'6", with 34 D Bra. It wasn't too heavy but heavy enough that it wasn't clingy. I wore a sticky bra and Spanx. I recommend this. It made my butt look great. The length was fine but you may need to wear some heels if you are my height or shorter. The color is true to photos.

Absolutely Stunning
I ordered a 4L and a 6L, but the 6L wasn't available to come in. An 8L came in instead, but I ended up fitting perfectly in the 4L! It hugged all of my "curves" and I loved the dress so much I dodn't want to send it back. In the photo I'm just wearing rain boots because it was rainy, but I wore some nude two inch heels for the rest of the night. Perfect gown for a classy prom. I had no problems with my arms rubbing on the sequins. I didn't have to even wear a sticky bra with it because it held them in place nicely.

I got a lot of details. Was concerned about how low the back went but it looked great.
Fit true to size. Very flattering. The sequins were kind of scratchy but due to the previous reviews, I was conscious of this and kept my arms a little out to the side.

Unique prom dress!
I loved this dress so much, it was a shame to send it back! I was worried that all the sequins would weigh the dress down or cause a rash on my arm where it would rub against, but I didn't have an issue with either. It was very comfortable an lightweight. My favorite feature was the open back.

Stunning and comfortable!
Absolutely loved this dress! I received a lot of compliments on it. Very comfortable to move in and fit to a T. The only down fall would be that it was short on me. I'm 5'6 and it was showing me shoes I would have liked for it to be a little longer, although I didn't have to worry about it or keep picking it up all night which was awesome. Overall great dress and the red lip stain I wore made it perfect too! A statement piece for sure!!

Prom Night!
The dress was the perfect length. It fit nice and looked elegant. I got several compliments! The back was a little to low for my comfort level as a prom chaperone, but I just pinned it up a little and it was good to go! If I weren't a prom chaperone, I wouldn't have felt a need to pin it.

This dress was lovely and so easy to wear. I am 5'6" and wore four inch heels and I ordered a long and it was just a little short. But it still looked great! Also, you will need sticky boobs as a regular bra will show on the back. Will use RTR again!
