Compliments all night

Comfortable overall. Can not wear bra because it is backless. Sequins chaffed underarms a bit. For sequins it was surprisingly comfy.

There are only a few dress options in Hawaii and RTR made me stand out in a crowd!

This dress will get compliments no matter what! I think it would work on any body type. I used a little bit of Hollywood Tape to pin up the bottom. I'm 4 11 but with heels and a little tape it worked perfectly. This dress is very stretchy so if you want it fitted don't be afraid to order a small size. I would 100% order this dress again. I'm in love!

One of a kind - stunner dress!

Absolutely loved this dress. It is form fitting so took a little bit for me to be comfortable wearing it as it was was for black tie Gala with colleagues and clients. Length was shorter, so wish I got 6L. Similar to other reviews, I got so many complements and just felt beautiful in it.

This was such a unique dress!

I absolutely loved this dress! I got tons of compliments on it. I am 5'6 and it was a little shorter than I expected, but I wore pretty tall heels. It also had a little train in the back, which I wasn't expecting but it wasn't hard to deal with. Overall, this dress was gorgeous and really comfortable! I would definitely recommend!

When other girls talk behind your back...with compliments!

Fits like a glove, isn't scratchy like sequins would lead you to believe, and looks like you're wearing liquid emeralds. It's helpful to choose the L in your size because the length is a bit short with heels added. I am 5'7" and perfectly wore the 4L with 1" heels. My husband thought I looked classy and gorgeous~ I was worried there would be a lot of red and green colored dresses at the holiday ball, but there were surprisingly more red & black gowns! I am small chested so stickies worked awesome for me to go bra-less...not sure how fuller chests would do without. If you want a dress that showcases your long slender or curvaceous frame, all the while turning heads this dress is a great one.

So comfortable and so unique. Got tons of compliments!

Great fit! You can even wear a normal bra with it by letting the straps down a bit. Only complaint was that it itches a little under the arms from the sequins!

Beautiful Gown! Perfect for NYE Wedding!

Absolutely loved this dress! Great color and fit! I got so many complements! I can typically wear a 2 or 4, I ended up wearing the 2R because the side zipper on the 4R hit didn't lay right on the hips. I was worried about the dress being too long but it was actually slightly shorter than I anticipated. I'm only 5'4" and the dress did not touch the ground in the front which I hoped it would. Still looked great but you could see my shoes.

Felt like a million bucks and so glamorous!

Fit true to size. Very comfortable and I wore it for almost 12 hours! (Late night!) With 4" heels the bottom didn't quite touch the floor which was perfect because I didn't want it to drag and get dirty. Really very comfortable and classic.

Perfect dress for a fun, formal Mad Hatter costume at a Wonderland costume ball! Comfy & elegant!

This was actually a replacement gown as my first choice (Chakra gown) was unavailable). I wanted something fun and funky for the formal Wonderland ball at our local children's museum. This was a perfect dress! Gorgeous, comfortable, great for my larger chest. Slimming and fit like a glove! Loved every minute wearing it!

Great customer service for the perfect fit!

OMG this dress was gorgeous! I originally got the 6L and it fit ok, but the 4L was like it was made for me. I got the 4L literally just in time to slip into it and run out the door. I normally don't wear sequined dresses but the color and style of this was classic and very flattering. I wore it with a "sticky" bra (nubra brand) since the swoop back comes down a little too far for a regular bra. The sleeves were a tiny bit too tight if I raised my arms, but otherwise it was a great dress. I didn't have the problems that some other reviewers had with the sequins scratching my arms or anything. I received compliments all night long and one woman told me it was the best dress of the evening. I certainly felt like a star all night and had to tell everyone it was "Rent the Runway" such a great experience, I will definitely rent from the runway again and maybe even this dress!

Loved getting to wear such a special dress to the navy birthday ball!

The fabric has a bit of stretch so it was really comfortable. I was disappointed to find some of the sequins missing from the gown and I didn't notice till I was on my way to the event. It arrived damaged so that was sad for me.

Old Hollywood Glamour! Second time I rented this dress, and I'd rent it again!

This is the second time I rented this dress and I was once again so happy with it! I ordered the same size and it fit wonderfully once again! I am leaving toward just purchasing the dress because I love it so much. In addition, the dress came 3 days earlier then I rented it and that sure means a lot when you live in Alaska! I got so many compliments and felt so fancy!

Got a lot of compliments...dress was amazing

The 6 was a much better fit, but there was some stitching on the side that was sticking out from the dress. Like someone tried to take it in and did a really bad job. So , I was forced to wear the 8 which was really big. If you are my size, I would order a 4. The 8 was really

Amazing color and style I felt pretty all night!

I wore this dress to a coworker's wedding and everyone loved it. I received numerous complements and I felt amazing in it. The color was perfect for the winter wedding and it wasn't too much sparkle for the event. The sequence didn't bother me while dancing but I did notice the next day my arms were a little raw. I ordered bother the 8R and the 10R. The 8 fit okay, the 10 was a little loser so in turn longer and went well with the 4" heels I was planning on wearing.

Amazing color and fit! Hugged my curves perfectly, easy to move in, felt like a 40s Hollywood star.

This dress runs true to size. I recently lost some weight and got my usual size 12 but I probably could have gone with the 10. Though I enjoyed the ease of movement the 12 have me, especially since I was dancing all night long. I wore the dress to a black tie wedding and received SO MANY compliments! The only downside to the dress were the sequins scratched under my left arm quite a bit. It didn't happen on the right side and I'm not really sure why it occurred but hurt pretty badly the next day. Perhaps it was because it was a little roomier on top. I would still wear it again and perhaps get the 10 next time. Highly recommend it for curvy girls like myself who want something that shows off their curves and is still comfortable.

Most gorgeous and comfortable dress I've ever worn!

I felt so good in this stunning gown. I am only 5'3 and the regular length was too short. But RTR's amazing customer service overnighted me the long version and it was perfect with 5 inch heels. We were at a black tie event and so many told me I had the best dress there. Someone even said it was the prettiest dress she had ever seen! The dress is lined, making it very comfortable. The fabric is forgiving of flaws. It's all around a wonderful dress. Just go for the long if you're 5'3 or taller.

Fit like a glove! Compliments all night long!

I wore this dress for my church's centennial gala. I wanted to look glamorous and a little sexy without revealing a whole lot of skin. This dress does exactly that. It fit true to size and has a little stretch if you end up eating too much and having a "food baby" like I did. The draping in the back is perfect if you want to show some skin in a tasteful manner. I received so many compliments all night long! I wish this was in my everyday wardrobe!

Perfection

In my opinion this dress fit true to size. I'm 5'8" and weigh around 128-130. I usually wear a 4 and the 4L fit like a glove. I would definitely recommend anyone 5'6" or taller ordering the long (especially if wearing heels). The dress is relatively stretchy, so there's give to it. I thought it was really comfortable! I did notice some scratching under the arms right when I put it on, but never noticed it again the rest of the night. I would wear this dress every day if I could! Photos don't do it justice, it is absolutely stunning. I have never received so many compliments in my life. I HIGHLY recommend renting, you won't be disappointed!

My sister and I neglected to tell one another what we were renting from RTR. It was hysterical!

I could have worn either the 2r or the 4r. They fit the same. I figured the 2 would be a bit shorter for my 5'1" self. My sister and I both got many compliments on both the long and the short looks. #WizardOfOzThemed #Gala #MatchingBySurprise

This dress is absolutely gorgeous, I can't stress it enough. I was so worried it wasn't going to fit beautifully, but as you can see it was perfect. It fit like a glove and is very forgiving. If you're concerned about the little bump here and there, don't be, the stretch and the sequins hide it well. It's absolutely beautiful, I received so many compliments, I'd do it again in a heartbeat. You won't regret this one!

This dress was the talk of the Gala!

This dress was so comfortable!!! However being 5'8 I would definitely suggest that tall girls get a long. I would highly recommend this dress to anyone, I felt so 1920's glamour in it! I even got to use it for a car show photoshoot the next day.

So many compliments!

I ordered this in a 10 and 12 and ended up wearing the 12. Both fit, but I thought the 12 looked better overall. The dress was very easy to wear and I received compliments all night. Due to the low back, I did not wear a bra, but given the weight of the fabric, the look was very appropriate. Really loved this one -highly recommend!

Loved this dress! Got so many compliments. Fit like a glove. I'm 5'4", almost 5'5". I had about 2 inch heels on. The size long was perfect! The sequence was not scratchy at all! Would highly recommend this dress! The Emerald/forest green is such a good fall color!

Sequin still a trend

Length dragged the floor slightly but I was still able to dance without tripping. Sequins and deep green color were stunning. Glamorous and I received lots of compliments on the dress. The sequins in the armpit area can get scratchy when raising hands up for dancing, so watch out for that.

Show stopper!

I received so many compliments! If you want to wear heels, I would definitely recommend getting the long. I order the 0 regular and 2 long and the regular was way too short. I'm also 5 months pregnant and this dress was perfect and bump friendly. Very comfy too! Great rental and beautiful color.
