OK. looked great in client pics, didn't drape nicely on me, zipper stuck, odd proportions/gathers
I couldn't wear this to my event. It just didn't work on me, strang proportions/gathers, and not much room for a drapey size 14 (snug in the waist). Also, n the hangar the zipper could BARELY go up and down, so it wasn't very functional. My boyfriend couldn't zip this at all once I had it on (not because it was snug, because the zipper wouldn't move). So I gave up on wearing it to an event. Pretty in theory. love the decollete, but just didn't work on me.

Shines bright all night
Went to a gala and was totally concerned with what to wear. Decided to drop into the store here in Chicago and this beauty was waiting for me. I'm 5'8 and typically have issues with finding long dresses. Well this was the perfect length. I'm also a little top heavy and hate looking really busty. This dress made me feel glamorous and sexy. Thank you for an awesome first experience. I became a pro member I was so happy with my experience.

STYLIST REVIEW
This gorgeous sequin gown is perfect for your next black tie event. The ruched band defines the waist and the skirt flows over the hips for a comfortable fit. There is great coverage in the bust area, so this style is perfect for all bust sizes! You can wear a standard bra as well. We recommend going one size up for backup. I went with the Regular length since there was no 4L offered, however I would have preferred the Long length for my height to cover my shoes. I didn't have any trouble with the zipper, however if you do, a great tip is to rub a bar of soap or candle over the teeth to help zip it up.

Glittery gold dress was perfect for our military ball! No one had the same dress!
RTR was supposed to send me two sizes in a different gold dress but the day before I was supposed to receive the dresses the second size became unavailable so they sent me this dress in the size I had originally requested. It just so happened that I liked this dress more and decided to wear it! No one else was wearing gold and no one had a dress like this. I received a lot of compliments, one of my favorites being I looked like a goddess! Thanks RTR for keeping my body type, size, and preferred color in mind to save the day!!

This dress is a showstopper. I received so many compliments! Truly one I would tell others to rent!
I am about 5'9'' and it was a bit long, even in heels. The material is a bit stiff in the back, so you might have to have someone help you zip it up. The dress was comfortable all evening! I was in it for about 7 hours! I would highly recommend this dress for anyone who wants to shine.

Compliments all night, so flattering!
I wore this to the Marine Corps birthday ball. It was perfect! It fit true to size, but it was a tiny bit shorter than I expected. My toes showed in the regular length in 3inch heels. It does have plenty of room for a large chest, but might be loose if you have a smaller chest like I do. I put a small safety pin in the top to hold the two breast pieces together. Still. Fabulously beautiful and flattering. My boyfriend loved it. I will warn at big events, there are tons of rent the runway dresses. I saw all the other colors there. Luckily no one had mine... Blue, black, rose gold, and my gold were all present.

Glam!
I wore this when 4 months pregnant and felt like a million bucks! Definitely bump-friendly and bump-flattering. I was a little worried I would feel like a lounge singer all in gold sequins but no, it's not garish in person. Really recommend this dress; I'm planning to rent it again in a few weeks.

I got so many compliments on this dress!
The length was very long, even with heels. Good for pictures, not great for dancing. I ran into another RTR gal in the exact same dress at the event venue. Fortunately we weren't at the same event.... But it was a close call!

This dress was amazing!!!
This dress fit perfectly!! It was very comfortable and was just fun to wear!! I received SO many compliments at my company Christmas party and was the only one wearing gold. The theme for our party was A Royal Affair and I truly felt like a queen in this dress!! I will rent from now on and only from RTR. A wonderful experience and a fantastic dress!! Ps I typically wear a 12 and the 12 L did fit but the sequins under my arms were very uncomfortable so I opted for the larger size so the arm holes would be larger. Just an fyi

This dress started receiving compliments literally as I stepped out of the car at the valet!
I am currently in between a 14 and a 16 in my weight loss journey.... The 16 wasn't available as an alternative size so I just HOPED and stayed off any fats or carbs for 2 weeks prior to make sure I could squeeze into the 14!! I ordered it in the Long size, i'm over 5ft9 and would be wearing heels of about 2.5 to 3 inches high. The Long was still a bit short on me, to fit perfectly it would have needed to be another 2inches longer for proper length, but as a friend who's dress was TOO long for her said, "i'd rather it be a bit short than too long!" The zipper across my rib cage was a bit tight and hard to manipulate, they are very strong reinforced zippers, but once past that hurdle it fit just fine. I am large busted as well, a 38DD and it fit just fine in the chest area. I didn't wear a bra with it because the V in the back ended up showing it, so a lower fitting bra strap may be best. My undergarments I wore had a built in bra and that did just fine. Though the straps and front worked well with a regular bra with a lower cut front. This dress got so many compliments all night long, literally from the first person I walked past at the valet and throughout the night, men and women complimented it! A comfortable wear for a very long evening!!!

Stunning dress, a total show stopper!
First off the dress arrived a day before expected, so that was a nice surprise. This dress is absolutely beautiful! Perfect for the old Hollywood glamour look I was going for. Now let's talk measurements, I am 5'2", 117lbs, and about 34"/25"/35" with a 32DDD chest, which always seems to give me trouble when finding a dress... I ordered a size 2R with the 0R as my back and tho the 2 was very comfortable I felt it was a bit lose on the straps and they kept riding down a bit. The 0 was a snug fit around my rib cage but it covered my chest well enough so I didn't feel exposed and the straps were the perfect length for me, so I went with that one. I wore it with a nice vintage looking gold necklace (also rented from here), a pair of gold strappy heels, and a fur shawl to complete the look, I got so many compliments all night!

Great first RTR experience. Felt so glamorous and got a ton of compliments!
I really enjoyed this dress! I rented it for our firm's Christmas party. It was comfortable, I wasn't bothered by the sequins on my inner arms. I thought the dress was a bit short - I am 5'2" and I normally wear petite but ordered the regular after reading reviews that it was short but I still couldn't wear heels (I don't like my heels to show, though). It was shorter in the back than the front but that could be due to my bum! The straps were a tad bit long due to the fact that I didn't order petite. Overall I was really happy with the dress. I received tons of compliments and felt beautiful!

Backup dress: Beautiful, but other gown was better
I'm a pear shaped 150lbs, 5'7" Indian woman with medium-dark skin tone with cool undertones. I picked this gown for its ability to hide my hips and also complement my skin tone. It does both. However, the lack of fit at the hips made them look even larger and out of proportion with my upper body. I would recommend to apples/athletic/slim fits to add curves in the chest and hip area. It made me look 2 sizes bigger. Other than that, gorgeous dress

So flattering!
This fit perfectly! It's probably a little short for someone that wants to wear tall heels. I am only 5'4". I wore it with 4" heels and it was a couple inches from the floor. It's a very flattering dress which is why I picked it for my first RTR experience. I got so many compliments and felt so glamorous! Very comfortable and you can wear a regular bra which is great. I wore this for a company Christmas party!

I wore this dress for a holiday charity ball.
This dress is so pretty. I received compliments all night. The color is great and it really stands apart from the sea of black that is usually found at formal events. I read the reviews and ordered the long based on complaints that the regular was too short for heels. The long touched the ground even with my 3 inch heels on and every once in a while my heel got caught in the fabric. I didn't try on the regular, but if you plan on wearing heels, I'd agree with getting the long. Just walk carefully and hold the dress up. The zipper also got stuck which seems to be a common thread. Instead of zipping it up the back, I put the dress on, zipped it to where I could and then turned it to my side (without putting my arms through). The zipper was significantly easier to manipulate. There is a bit of rubbing under the armpits, but after a while I didn't even feel it. It's also heavier than you might expect. It really shows off your boobs, so if you are really self-conscious, unless you are smaller chested, it may not be the dress for you. All in all, great dress. I danced all night and had no issues.

This dress was amazing! It runs true to size. The only problem was the zipper was difficult to get up. I got a long to cover my heels and it was perfect, I'm 5'9"! Perfect gold bridesmaids dress!

I felt like a queen.
Rented this dress for my boyfriends company party. It is soooooo sparkly, very show-stopping and comfy. The waistband has no give to it, but luckily the dress runs true to size so that's no problem. Good boob coverage; I'm 32F, so that's importante! Wide enough straps to wear any bra.

My first and definitely not my last rent the runway experience. The dress arrived amazingly packaged with everything just the way I ordered. Both 10 and 12 fit, but the 12 was more comfortable. The zipper was hard going up and down and required additional help. Perfect length with 2"-3" heels.

Beautiful Dress!!
We all did rent the runway for our bridesmaids dresses for my sisters wedding. My dress is the one in the middle which was the Gold Glitz Gown. Im 5'0" tall and wore 4 inch heels and it fit perfect. If you are 5'4" and above and planning wearing heels i would get a long. Zipper was extremely hard at the empire seem and it wasn't just me in the dress. I read reviews saying it would stick and that you need to be zipped in by 2 other people and you do. But over all i would rent this dress again!!

This dress had the right amount of glam to it, not too little and not too much.
It true to color. I have uploaded two pictures for you to view. One with the camera phone quality, which is not so great and one with a professional camera. I'm 5'2 and the length of this dress is pretty long with 5" in heels. The sequence of the dress did not make it any heavier at all, which was my main concern beside the length. The top is a little too low cut so if you're at a more formal event I for recommend taping it up. Over all the dress was great!

Hollywood Galm, perfect for an Oscars Party!
I got this dress in both a 8 and 10L because I typically run smaller on top and with an athletic build need a little extra room for the bottom. I ended up going with the 10 because it gave me the extra length I needed. I will say as in other reviews the zipper can stick and mine did as well but many zippers do that on these dresses. Overall had a ton of compliments and loved the fit. LOVED that you could also wear a normal bra as well! Had to pin the front to prevent exposure but that was fine!

It is truly a showstopper. And very comfortable for dancing! Great dress for a black tie wedding.
What's to say that hasn't already been said? This is the perfect wedding dress. Beware though, someone else might have rented it too (it happened to me but I had a good laugh). I'm very busty and didn't have an issue. The zipper is tough so you cant get it and out of the dress without assistance- plan ahead! I wore 3.5 inch heels and was fine.

This is a great dress and love it! I am pregnant and ordered up, but the dress ended up being too big. I will say that the draping around the hips may look your hips look a little larger than they are.

This dress made me feel like a million bucks!
I loved the fit! I tend to accentuate my chest and this dress was perfect! I was even able to wear a normal (low cut) bra. It was super long though. I'm 5'4"/5'3" and I had to wear three inch heels (that I eventually had to take off). My first RTR experience and I'll do it again soon! Cons: It did scratch up my arms a little bit but it was worth it!

This dress was stunning on and made me feel like a movie star.
The gold of this dress is perfect, it is sparkly enough to turn heads but somehow manages not to be too over the top. As a 38G the option to look this great and wear a regular bra is amazing! My husband loved this the second I put it on. I dare you to try and not feel sexy and glamorous in this dress.

Ran true to size, however runs SHORT.
I was 32 weeks pregnant when i wore this dress and it fit perfectly. I highly recommend this for the pregnanct ladies that need a formal gown. The empire waist allows plenty of room for your growing belly. I originally ordered the 10R, but it was really short even with no heels. I had to have a longer dress sent and the customer service was amazing. They had another dress shipped to my location in less than 24 hours. The 10L was perfect for me.

Absolutely stunning dress!
I rented this for my sorority formal and I never wanted to give it back! The dress is beautiful and not overtly shimmery in person. I went with the long, as many reviews suggested, and it was the perfect length with flat sandals (I'm 5'5"). I didn't have any safety pins, so my boobs were kind of out more than I'd like but it definitely wasn't terrible. I was called a Greek goddess several times and received TONS of compliments by my sisters, so it was definitely a winner. I would recommend to everyone on the fence about it! My only complaint was that the sequins rubbed my underarms a little bit, but it was definitely worth a little irritation.

Odd lengths but lovely fitting dress overall!
I ordered both a 14R and a 16WR. I ended up wearing a 12L in the blush color. We rented theses for bridesmaid dresses. I am 5' 5" inches and I wear a 38C bra. The 14R fit well but the length was short. I would have not been able to wear heals. The 16WR fit okay. It was much looser that the 14R but the dress was structured enough that it held the shape well despite being slightly too large. The length on that one was fine with heels. I could have worn it but the cup area was WAY to large for my cup size. Another bridesmaid had an extra 12L in the same dress that I wore and it was a bit snug where in cinches but not uncomfortable. The length was fine. I wore a two inch heel and it was a bit too long but better than too short. A 3 inch heel would have been perfect. I wore a Very Sexy style bra from Victoria's Secret and still pinned the breast area together. It didn't necessarily need it but the wedding was in a catholic church and I just felt a little better with it pinned a bit. It certainly was not trashy either way and perfectly fine for any type of event. Overall, it all ended up lovely. We got so many compliments on the dresses!

The dress is a stunner! A little big on the shoulders which would lead to a lot of cleavage but nothing you can't handle. Received lots of compliments. I felt so pretty I didn't want to take it off. Would totally rent it again
