So much sparkle!!

I ordered this dress for a formal night on a cruise and it was AMAZING. The dress runs true to size and has some stretch which was great because I'm very busty (36DD). The dress was long but I'm also very short, about 5'1 so I wore 5 1/2 inch heels and it was fine. I absolutely recommend this dress! Gorgeous, comfortable, total show stopper.

Always on time, always a beautiful dress!!

The dress fit beautifully! The sequins were not itchy in the least (I hate when they scratch you up!), and I got so many compliments on the gown! Stunning dress!

Everyone loved the sparkle!

I went a ball that was Great Gatsby themed...the glitz of this dress was perfect! I originally ordered a 20wl and added the 18 as my back up. Thank God, because the 20 that was sent was regular length instead of long! Because I am 5'10" the regular would have looked too short and ill constructed! I would have preferred the 20 because it wouldn't have accentuated my lower pooch as much, but overall the 18 worked out. The dress does run large as other comments have pointed out, so I would similarly suggest going down a size or 2. I looked so glamorous in this dress that it didn't even matter or seem like this was a last minute option to supplant an order I made elsewhere! Loved it and wear again

Comfortable Chic Formal Dress

My husband and I attended a gala this past weekend and I received nothing but compliments on this dress! It's super comfortable and I could wear a normal bra instead of a strapless. The fit and hemline was perfect! I would definitely recommend this dress.

The fit of the dress was great and comfortable during the night! The packaging was also exceptional!

The dress fit true to size and hugged in all the right places. It was very comfortable to wear all night and was easy to dance in. The sequins was a bit itchy but wasn't unbearable! The pictures posted on RTR does the dress no justice! It is better in person and photographed well! I would definitely recommend this dress!

This gown made me feel amazing! It fit over my curves perfectly even my larger breast (36HH).

All Pros with this gown! Sizing was perfect! Not as heavy as I thought it would be considering it was mostly sequence. I love the mermaid cut of the gown on the bottom. I felt like a star on the dance floor. Lol

Elegant but not over the top

I loved this dress. It was a bit loose in the waist and the top of the neckline rippled slightly but it was perfect for this formal wedding. I felt covered enough in the Orthodox Church. It has a slight train which also made it stunning. The only issue I had was the length. I'm not the tallest woman by any means and I had to wear flats. I ordered the regular length thinking I would wear heels too but it was so short even my flats were showing. I don't know if someone altered it prior to my purchase. I received many compliments all night

Comfortable, eye catching and stunning.

I swapped out my original dress for this dress the night before when I realized the original didn't quite fit. Customer service was amazing and helpful and suggested this dress. I'm so glad they did because it was a stunner!! Very comfortable and eye catching. I was wearing about 6 inch heels and the length was perfect. Small amount of chaffing near my arms because of the sequins, but with fashion comes pain. Love RTR, can't wait to use them again.

Amazing fit

Loved wearing this dress Prefect fit around the bust & I didn't have to wear a special bra. The dress isn't to long , I'm 5'5 & you could still see my shoes. It hugs your curves in all the right places.

Stunner All Night Long

Wore this for our first night out after my son was born and wanted to feel pretty! This dress knocked it out of the park. People kept stopping me to compliment me on the dress. Only thing is that at 5'10 the long was necessary- and still I wore flats. The sequins were s little scratchy under my arms BUT the little bolero fixed that issue.

This dress was fabulous!

I absolutely loved this dress! I had so many compliments on it. My only con is that the long size isn't very long. I'm 5"11, and it was too short. I ended up wearing it anyway, but I wish it would have had a few more inches in length.

Felt like like a million bucks!

I ordered this dress as a back up style to the tuxedo ruffle dress for a black tie wedding. I just had a baby 3 months ago and felt it might be more forgiving of the tuxedo dress didn't fit. And I was right but so happy with the dress. I actually tried it on first and I felt great because I instantly loved the dress. I'm 5ft and pre pregnancy I was a size 12 but I have large breasts and always have issues with clothing. I was able to fit this dress right over my head without having to put the zipper down. I was very comfortable. The one con (but not really it comes with the territory) is that dress did get caught on it self a couple of time but it was easy to just untangle quickly. Overall I'm very happy and As it was my first time doing rent the runway I don't think I'll ever go back!

Absolutely amazing gown!

I rented this gown for a Mardi Gras Ball. The fit was fabulous. It was form fitting through the body and had a nice little train at the back. It is slightly stretchy and so comfortable. I was able to dance and move in it for hours and I didn't mind at all. Normally, I despise wearing gowns. It was a little heavy, but it wasn't a big deal. I was able to wear a normal bra with this dress which made it even more comfortable. I received so many compliments. I truly felt like a movie star and super glamorous! Definitely will be renting from RTR again in the future!

I received my gown on time and it gave me peace of mind. The quality of gown is superb!!!!

This gown fit me like a glove. The fabric has slight give and covers slight imperfections with ease. It is so beautiful. The gown is full of sequins which could be irritating under the arm but they didn't bother me much at all. I was too busy being the belle of the Ball.

This dress was stunning! I received tons of compliments and felt great wearing it!

This dress is very true to size, I am very large up top (DDD) and the dress fit perfectly up there. I am 5'5" and the dress was right at the floor with flats, with heels wouldn't have hit right. Very comfortable dress! Not itchy or too heavy like I imagined. Perfect for my formal event!

Gorgeous Dress!!

I rented this dress for my law school Barristers Ball. I loved it!!! I'm very busty (38 M) and there was room in the top for the girls! I really loved how the sequin material laid on my body. It smoothed any problem areas. The neckline didn't quite lay flat but it didn't bother me that much. The black band at the waistline made the dress very flattering too. I'm 5'2" and wore heels and had no issues with the dress being too long, which I was a bit surprised about. The customer service at RTR is incredible. My dress was supposed to arrive Thursday (this was a first time renting and I was worried about fit) so I could get another dress if it didn't work. I got an email stating there was a shipping delay. I called RTR and a stylist helped me choose another style in a different. They overnighted the other dress and both arrived Friday. They both fit! But I adored the gold one so I rocked it last night. I'm hooked on RTR now for sure. I'm very impressed!!

Glitzy dress

I wore 16l. Thank goodness I ordered long because regular would be way to short. I wore flats with the long. Sequins rubbed under my arms a bit. Quite a few compliments came my way on the dress. I liked it. So happy it was rented because I would not wear it twice. Perfect dress for one time use.

I'm 5'2" and wore 3 1/2 inch heels. The dress hit the floor and the small train in the back was beautiful. The shine factor made me feel glamorous! No special undergarments needed. Excellent dress!!

So many compliments!

Ran a little large, so the top draped a little more than I expected. Overall very comfy, though the sequins scratched under my arms a bit - keeping a pashmina with me helped. Easy to sit in, so that was a plus. Wore to a black tie wedding and received lots of compliments!

Murder/Mystery Corporate Event

I rented this for the work function and it did not disappoint! I won best dressed because it really was a homerun for the Hollywood Diva I was playing! The Long length was a must have because the R was too short even for flats. With the L I could be in 3" heels comfortably and not be tripping over the dress. I received so many compliments, I am so pleased with the service. I cannot wait for another reason to rent a dress!!

Lovely dress

Dress was a rushed back up because my original dress did not fit. It was a little big in the breast area but because of the type of fabric, it was not an issue. Very comfy and not heavy at all like a lot of sequin dresses. Only slightly itchy but that is to be expected with sequins. I am an apple shape and my midsection is my problem area but this dress is very forgiving! Would 100% recommend!

Rollin' in the River Gala

I normally wear a size 16. I'm 5'7" so after reading the reviews I ordered the long because I didn't want it to be to short. When I tried it on it was dragging on the floor even with 3 inch heals. The 14R fit well and was the perfect length. I was surprised the 14 fit so well. Very comfortable to wear all night! Received many compliments throughout the night.

Five star dress for a five star event

This is actually the second time that I rented this dress for a formal military event. I love how the gold complements my husband's officer uniform. We attended the 75th anniversary of the battle of Midway in San Francisco and I received literally 100 compliments (from every age group) on this perfect dress! It fits like a dream with plenty of give, I really like the Modest bust line for these occasions. It's super dreamy to wear, kind of heavy but in a really satisfying and rich feeling way. I like this dress so much I would actually love to own it, even though I loathe to wear the same dress twice (which is why rent the runway is clutch!!) we go to so many of these occasions I feel like I could probably get away with it. This dress is perfection!!

Real clothes are boring now!!!

I rented this dress to stand up an Old Hollywood themed wedding. It was a hit! I was complimented all night!! The dress fit great. It was very comfortable. While it is a form fitting dress, there is a little stretch so you have plenty of room for dancing! :) I don't recommend wearing this for warm weather events. It was in the 90s all day & I was very warm. Other than that, this dress was absolute perfect !

Dazzling

I rented this dress for a gala and the theme was silver and gold. It was perfect to celebrate in. I wore flats and the length was perfect, I'm 5'5". If you plan on wearing heels you might want to get a long length. I was able to wear a bra and spanks which is always a plus!

Beautiful sparkle!

I enjoyed wearing this dress to a formal party. I wasnt sure how I'd feel about showing my arms, but the dress was so pretty it made me forget about my insecurity. I received many compliments. It was easy to dance in. I did notice the next day that I had some scrapes on my arms from the sequence on the dress. This is the reason i gave the dress 4 stars. I could have possibly sized down because it was large on me up top and could have been slightly more form fitting on me, but it was comfortable for my taste. I would recommend this dress.

The plus size dress of my dreams!!

This was an absolutely amazing dress! Plus size girls, don't be afraid to wear something that has you standing out! My husband and I attended a formal gala/awards ceremony and I had compliments on this dress all night long! Plus size girls, this is a perfect dress. It does run short, but I'm also 5'3 so I wore kitten heels and it was the perfect height. Also, the sequins did scratch my arms a little, but it was manageable. 10/10 would rent this one again

Stinking Beautiful

This dress was stunning on! The problem: it wreaked of body odor when It arrived. I left it out in my guest room for two days but it still smelled. Kinda makes me wonder if they are actually laundering the dresses or not. This dress fits really well and hides imperfections that I am insecure about.

Compliments galore

This dress was a "this is the last one in my size because RTR messed up so I'll take it" dress. I am kinda glad RTR messed up so horribly and I got to wear this gorgeous dress. As soon as I walked out of the hotel room I received three compliments on the way to the lobby. It was so comfortable. The beading u see my arm did scratch a little and the dress ran a little big all over, but worked well. I would definitely rent this again for another event. It was very flattering and the slight train/flair at the bottom was a nice surprise :)
