So beautiful! I wish I owned it!
It fit true to size and is more beautiful in person than it is in the pictures. The sequins rubbed my underarms a little but thankfully it was tolerable. I loved this dress so much and I got so many compliments I wish I could have kept it forever! I would definitely recommend!

Cute and flirty little number. Lots of fun for Great Gatsby themed wedding.
The dress was clean and gorgeous as expected. I wore it to a Great Gatsby themed wedding and it was very comfortable. The cap sleeve was a little restrictive but that's probably because I like to dance all crazy. The sequins did not scratch as much as I thought it would. The only problem I had was the I couldn't find underwear that would be invisible. Everything I tried came up too high (you can see it in the pic) but it's wasn't a big deal. That's a heads up so you can prepare when you decide to rent it.

Rented the dress for a Gatsby themed wedding. Paired the dress with pearls and it was perfect.
Dress is beautiful. Got a lot of compliments on the color. Fits true to size. It's great that you can wear a regular bra with this dress. The only con I can think of was by the end of the night by underarms were a little scratchy because of the sequins but it's to be expected.

Gorgeous Glamour
This dress is absolutely gorgeous. The color is just beautiful and the shape is divine! I wore "petals" instead of a bra for the first time and it went perfectly! I was pleasantly surprised to find that the dress was still incredibly flattering in the front despite lack of support (from going without a bra) and a high neck. And of course the back of the dress steals the show! I could not have been more thrilled with this "wild card" dress!

Got so many compliments!
Great dress for a very cosmopolitan wedding that required a short, formal cocktail dress. It worked well for my height of 5'2". I was able wear a regular strapless bra with it and I just pulled down the band just a little. I got lots of compliments and it was a very easy to wear dress.

Almost 7 months pregnant and still so flattering and comfortable! Just the right amount of stretch and so gorgeous. I received compliments all night and felt amazing. Would absolutely rent again in a heartbeat.

Perfect first time rental experience
I was really nervous about renting a dress, but decided to give it a try. I wanted to have something special, as my husband was in the bridal party and would be wearing a tuxedo. I definitely got what I wished for! As far as fit goes, I tend to wear a 6 or an 8, so those are the 2 sizes I selected. Both fit me fine, but I chose to wear the 8 to have it be a little least clingy and allow for more movement in my arms and legs. It is a very body conscious style, so be ready for that. Also, get a NuBra! I loved this dress. I was sad to return it. The back is to die for and the color is gorgeous.

Sparkly
This was a great choice for a party! The sparkles were fun and perfect for a very large, creative black tie event. Color was unusual which was nice. Arrived in good condition and I would rent again.

A dream dress!
This dress really is a dream come true. I rented the full length version before for a black-tie gala and was thrilled to see that there was a shorter version as well. The dress is lined so the sequins are not poking you. The back of the dress is to die for and as if the gorgeous color and sparkle did not already make a statement, when you turn around the draping certainly will! The overall fit is super flattering, very comfortable and runs true to size. Though I may have been able to squeeze into a 4, I'm happy I went with the 6 that fit perfectly, was not loose at all, yet even after dinner I did not have to worry about a noticeable bulge. I was so in love with the dress that I ended up purchasing it.

"You must have come with the venue because you look like an old Hollywood starlet!" -random guest
This was my first Rent The Runway experience and it was everything I had hoped it would be! I felt like sheer perfection in this dress! Sexy, class, and comfortable. I wore a pair for regular old short spanx, but not because the dress required it, I was just feeling a little bloated from the rehearsal dinner drinks the night before and was also worried about being cold. I did however have to wear a low backed bra. I wore a black one, which was good because you could kind of still see the bra just a bit around the edges of the cowl neck, but anyone I asked about it said they didn't notice and/or just thought it was like lining of dress. Turned out the Maid of Honor was wearing the floor length version of the dress in gold and has small enough boobs that she went braless (and thankfully no one except us really noticed we were basically wearing the same dress). I have tried to wear sequins in the past and always found that scratch and sometimes even leave tiny cuts on the undersides of my arms. This was not the case at all! I was able sit very comfortably in a car, shuttle (from the hotel to the wedding), during the ceremony, and throughout dinner. I had absolutely no problems dancing quite enthusiastically with my boyfriend and all our college friends. I would totally rent this dress again! 9.5/10 (-.5 because trying get my bra not to show was kind of a pain)

Have rented similar (in green) a few times before. I loved this dress - so many compliments, and it's comfortable. I wore it with a normal bra with a low back converter with no problems. Fabulous dress, will rent again (and again and again)!

WOW! What an unbelievable dress! Didn't want to return it!
LOVED this dress! So comfortable! I am 5'4" and 123lbs and usually wear a size 4 but chose to wear a size 2 in this dress. I wanted it to fit more snug. The 2 was perfect!!! I am small chested and the size 4 was just a tad too big on top. I wore this dress to the after party for Samantha Bee's NOT The White House Correspondents' Dinner . Couldn't have picked a more perfect dress. I've never used Rent the Runway before but will for sure use it again. Why buy a dress you will only wear once when you can rent something new and fabulous!

Dress looked amazing on stage under the lights
I ordered the 2 and the 4 based on other reviews. I went with the 4 and I'm 5'-8" and 138#. Dress was sparkly but appropriate for a work gala.

Beautiful sparkly and comfy!
I wore this dress to a wedding at a vineyard where it was cocktail attire. I'm usually an 8, but I also got the 10 just in case. I wore the 8 and it fit perfectly. It was plenty loose around the hips (my concern) and didn't ride up at all. The top is a bit big and drapey, but it has silicon strips at the shoulder to help it grip. I wore it without an bra since the back dips so low. Bigger chested women may need to find an alternative bra. I got plenty of compliments, and extolled the virtues of RTR to my table mate at dinner!

Who doesn't love sparkles?!
It was great! Loved the dropped back and the color. Could be considered blue or lavender! Like almost all my other rentals, I felt like a million bucks! Only tough part for me was shoes/hose choices. I went with black (which was my more comfortable choice and looked fine), but I think nude/beige would have been better.

Beautiful holiday party dress
This was the perfect dress for a holiday party - it was classy enough for a business event, but the low back added that touch of something. It was form fitting (but not tight, more stretchy but formatting). Unfortunately because of lighting I couldn't get a good picture. I'm 5'3, 115lbs and 34c and I got the 2 and 4 but went with the 2 and was really happy.

Rent this dress!
This dress was gorgeous and definitely got me a lot of attention. It is very sparkly in the sun! It was very comfortable to walk and sit in and I did not find the sequins to be scratchy at all. I am a true pear shape and usually wear a 6-8 and I chose the 8 in this one. The 6 fit but I found it too tight along the neckline. I would definitely rent this one again! The back is just to die for!

I loved your review and did end up renting this dress for a wedding this past weekend. It's so awesome. I was sad to return it! And because of your photo, I made sure to take a similar one with my hubby to show off the back.

All that Glitz!
Super comfortable and classy, but yet- sexy dress. The dress is totally true to size, with a little forgiveness. The bra situation is tough- need a backless bra. Everyone loved it.

Was considering it for a wedding, but ultimately not springy enough.
Was certainly the right size, but had weird gaping in front of the armpits. Color is much more periwinkle/purply than I expected.

Beautiful dress! Fit well, great color, love the draped back!
True to size on the fit. I am petite and it came to the top of my knee. The main downside with this dress was that my arms were very red and chafed by the end of the night after rubbing on the sequins.

Gatsby New Year
Rented this dress for a New Years Eve 20's themed party. It was perfect. The dress was a little tight over my tummy area but I wore some shapewear which helped a lot. It fit true to size. I especially loved the back of the dress, it gave a fun element. I expected to have some rubbing from the sequins but was pleasantly surprised that I didn't have any irritation.

Shimmer with a surprise in the back!
This dress hugs the body without being clingy. It's easy to move in and didn't ride up after sitting or while dancing. The back is fairly low, so a standard strapless bra doesn't work. At 5'5", this dress was a bit longer than anticipated, skimming the top of my knees.

I wore this dress for New Year's Eve. It was perfect! It was about 45 degrees out so I paired it with tights and was fine. It was very comfortable and was a great look for New Year's.

Sparkles make the party AWESOME
This was my backup. I picked the gold version originally but was feeling bloated and this was more forgiving. Falls in all the right places... I felt awesome! I'm a 38D and I was able to comfortably wear an adhesive bra and felt perfectly supported the whole night. Got a ton of compliments and even a kiss from a random stranger! Haha... enjoy!

This dress made me feel amazing!
I rented this for a New Year's Eve party. It was festive and sparkly, so just right for the occasion. I rented the 2 and the 4, and I felt like the 4 gave me a little more wiggle room in the lower half (I'm a pretty classic pear). I did wear spanx but just to smooth everything out, would have been fine without. The back is fantastic! I received tons of compliments all night, and my husband loved it as well.

The size was true and it was very comfortable. Love the dropped back and the color. The sequins caught the light and made every picture look amazing. Got multiple compliments on the dress through out the night and felt great wearing it. THANKS!
