It made me feel special! I bought this dress, I didn't rent it, and I'm not sorry I did!
Felt great, soft, easy to move in, no trouble with the sleeves, I felt it was true to fit. I love the way I look in this dress.

Felt like wearing a Tshirt!
The inside is So soft! There wasn't much, if any, scratchiness on the arms from the sequins. I went with the 4, because it fit a little more snug and the bottom didn't ride up.

I looked gooo-oood in this dress!!! Perfect for a fancy winter wedding.
I typically wear an 8 so I ordered an 8 and a 6 in this dress. The 8 fit, but because I had to go bra-less, I opted for the 6 for the added tightness. The 6 fit perfectly everywhere and I looked reallly great! It was nice to be in green when nearly everyone was in black. Paired with gold heels and a gold clutch.

All the glitter
All that needs to be said is that I was photographed for the society pages at a charity event in this dress. I am not a socialite, the dress looked that good. When they asked "what are you wearing" I proudly said "Rent the Runway!"

Glittery and extravagant
This dress made me feel amazing! I wore it to my work holiday gala. It was long enough to feel appropriate for a work event but not so long that I felt out of place when we went out for more drinks afterward. I received tons of compliments. I wore the dress with a backless bra. The fit was great. The sequins didn't bother me but I did have some redness on my arms later that night.

A classy stand-out!
New Years Eve everyone wears sequence! This little number set me apart due to it's sophistication. Cap sleeves and backless, I felt incredibly flirty in it! It runs true to size and not too short. I had no problem going bra-less. I would definitely rent this again!

Gorgeous color and fits perfectly
I wore this dress for an outdoor, formal event. The dress was perfect for the event and I received so many compliments. The day was very humid though and the dress isn't very breathable due to the sequins, but I didn't mind because I loved the dress so much. The low back and overall fit of the dress is very flattering. The color is also a show stopper. I wish I owned the dress!

Fits fabulously, feels so glamorous. Got tons of compliments and felt confident all night. Loved it!
Sequins didn't bother me like others noted. I did have to wear a sticky backless bra with this.

Great Dress!! Comfortable and fun!
I was constantly getting compliments on this dress! I wore it to a work holiday party and at one point my executive leadership mentioned that I could be "best dressed" due to this dress. I loved the fit and the style, it was appropriate for a work function, with a little bit of fun with the low back to take it into evening wear. The back is pretty low, so I had to wear a sticky, 'nubra' on the front rather than my usual bra. Overall, great dress!!

Perfect for NYE!
This dress was gorgeous. The fit is flattering and classy, and the droopy back is so sexy! I felt so beautiful!! I ordered a 2 and 4. I ended up wearing the 2 because it fit better. I was worried because I have wide hips and a small waist, but this fit like a glove! The only con (which didn't bother me) was the dress did scratch my underarms, but I was dancing all night and didn't realize until after the wedding.

Fun and comfy
I absolutely love this dress. It was fitted but comfortable. A great length, short to be sexy but not omg I'm exposing my you know what to the world. The back is low, I have big boobs (36G) so wore a green bralette from AE which gave me some support for dancing and peekabooed the lace in back. I guess you could go braless but a cute back bra or bralette looks good too. It's really well made and the green is a really nice emerald. I wore it for NYE in Hollywood, my hair in front to show off my back.

NYE banger!
I got tons of compliments in this dress, and over all it was very comfortable. I was I had gone with the 22 as my backup size because my stomach made the dress a bit shorter than I would have liked. I wore a regular push up bra with this, and had no issues with the dip back showing straps, though I think the back is higher on the plus sizes for some reason? The dress is well lined, so it wasn't itchy like I expected, though after wearing it for several hours the undersides of my arms did get a bit irritated. The side zipper was VERY stubborn when putting the dress on, but that may have also been a size issue. Overall, a great dress that I would rent again in a heart beat. First RTR experience and I'll definitely be back!

This dress was fabulous! The sequins are gorgeous, and the fit is so flattering. Got compliments all night, and it shone in all the photos. Perfect for a night wedding in Manhattan. The back is low, so you need either no bra or a low back one.

Festive, great red alternative
I wanted something that would be festive and fun for my cocktail-attire holiday party, and this was exactly that! The dress does run a bit small and the stomach area is quite clingy, so I sized up. Even still, it shows off your curves and the back is gorgeous. Definitely a statement piece and perfect for the holidays or a formal affair. Also a great alternative to wearing red around the holidays. Overall, glad I rented but didn't think it was flattering enough to rent again or consider buying.

Just the right amount of festive and sexy at a holiday work party
I wore this dress to my holiday work party. It was the right amount of sexy and conservative because you get to show off your back and legs! My ultimate fear was the dress wouldn't fit well or at all since it was my first time renting from RTR and I didn't have any backups. I relied heavily on reading through all the reviews and ordered the extra dress size up just in case! I am 6'0 ft, my dress size ranges from 10 and 12 with a 36 DDD bust. The 10 was true to size but I could have gone with the 12 as well (not too much of a difference). I'm busty so I was also worried about wearing a bra since the back dips low. I knew there was no way I wasn't going to wear support as I read other ladies wearing no bra, pasties or low strapless. I wore a regular nude bra and tucked a bit of the draped material over the back of my bra band and you can't tell the difference. I didn't have a problem with the sequins being scratchy under the arms but the bottom of where the dress zips up does poke out a bit. You notice it when you're zipping yourself up but just hold your clutch on that side of your body and no one can tell. Photos do not give justice to this dress! I got soo many compliments and this dress makes you stand out in a sea of black! Highly recommended, will not be disappointed! I will definitely be renting this in every color!

You will stand out at your party!
Dress runs pretty TTS. I could have worn the 2 or 0 -- I went with the 0 because the 2 was a bit big in the shoulders and would keep falling down. The dress doent have much stretch. I wore a Nu Bra and Spanx and it was perfect. I also used double sided fashion tape to keep the shoulder parts snug just in case! The sequins didnt itch my skin. Perfect dress for my Holiday Work Party. Received a TON of compliments. The dress definitely stands out against standard cocktail dresses.

Beautiful!
I ordered this dress for my work Christmas Party. I am usually a size 18 but since the dress seemed a bit more fit I also ordered a size 20 just in case. The 18 fit perfectly on me. I received a lot of compliments that night! I would rent this dress again but in the gold color next time!

This dress was absolutely perfect, I stood out at my husbands Christmas in all the right ways! I was worried the sequins would rub but the lining is so soft and the fit is perfect! I wore this without a bra and no problem, the Flores had enough support to hold everything up and in!

Holiday party win
Really loved this dress-- was perfect for a work holiday party while remaining a little unique. Definitely runs large--I typically wear a size 4 dress but wore a size 2 based on previous reviews which was still a little big. The back is awesome but tough to wear a bra (I went bra less). I thought the sequins were shockingly flattering & comfortable & I got tons of compliments- would definitely recommend this dress!

Stunning dress which shows just enough in the back
The sequined green was the perfect holiday green for this Christmas party. Elegant and sexy which the back drop. It was comfortable and fit perfectly in the body. Only if you have broad shoulders like me the sleeves were a bit snug around my shoulders. but not too uncomfortable to bother my good time.

The dress was gorgeous!
The dress was very beautiful and true to size and color. I wore this dress to a Christmas gala. I would recommend getting a size smaller because it has a lot of stretch to the fabric and the open back makes the shoulder slip off a little. I ordered a 2 and 4 and I could have worn a 0. I chose black patent heels but if I could have found them, I would have chosen gold strappy heels. The dress was comfortable and the sequins did not bother me at all, except for my hair getting caught in them every once in a while. I wear a DD bra and the fact that the dress was backless was not a problem because I found a great sticky bra at Target for $24 that worked fantastically. I would rent this dress again.

My confidence was through the roof!
I am in-between sizes but this dress works for that. I am 5'6 170lbs and around a 12-14 in size. This is the 14 and was slightly big, but gave me wiggle room to dance all night and feel comfortable. I got non stop compliments and people asking where I got it from. I would rent it again in a heartbeat. Great fit and totally comfortable. So happy I picked this dress.

The color of this dress is exquisite.
I have an hourglass shape and this was definitely unforgiving in the tummy area. The dress was beautiful and I received a lot of compliments. However, I ordered it two sizes larger and it still made my stomach look terrible. The dress would be beautiful on someone who wasn't so heavy.

Great holiday party dress
Wore this for a company holiday party. It runs a smidge large, so I would order down for a second size, but I would consider it TTS. Color is gorgeous. The sequins were not too irritating and garment was in good condition. The length was a few inches above the knee. I liked the conservative front and cute cap sleeves contrasted with the swooping back. I did not wear a bra with it - the material is substantial - but you can choose to wear one if you plan on some strategic pinning. Comfortable and fun- I wanted to buy this one. Paired it with simple diamond studs, strappy black heels and a huge cocktail ring.

I received so many compliments and loved how comfortable I felt in this dress!!!
I'm typically between a 0 or a 2 and ended up going with the 2. Although the 0 fit fine, I felt the 2 was more flattering. Definitely go with your true size or one up!
