I rented this dress for my first gay wedding last fall. What a blast!

Based on other reviews I ordered a size 4 with my backup being a size 2. The 4 was way too big so I winded up wearing the 2 which fit perfectly. I purchased a sticky bra because I was skeptical about how low the back of the dress draped. I wore the stick on bra but could've probably gotten away with a regular bra for sure. I got so many compliments on my dress all night! Really beautiful, I would rent this again!

I wore this to a gala and had many compliments throughout the evening!

This is a gorgeous dress. I immediately fell in love with it when I rented it last fall and wish I could wear it everywhere! Both the 0 and the 2 fit me well. I ended up wearing the 0 because the 2 was a bit looser, but when I wore the 0 I did wear some shape wear to make my stomach a bit smoother. Either would have been just fine.

Gorgeous color and sparkle/ so so fit

This dress is beautiful from the back. The color and sparkle are stunning, however the overall fit is so so. The dress just hangs, and the aside from the sequins, from the front is a bit more conservative than what I was going for , therefore I didn't end up wearing this dress.

Great dress for the Holidays!

This dress is pretty! The sequins color and sparkle are beautiful. It is very stretchy, and runs a bit big. I usually wear a 2 or 4, but the 0 would have fit me best. The back of the dress is gorgeous! You can wear a regular bra, if you use the backless strap trick :) This is a great New Years or holiday party dress!

Fits great, fabric is a little stretchy. Cowl in the back has a weight, so you don't need to worry about adjusting it all the time.

flattering, and stunning dress

I loved this dress. I wasn't sure when I saw it on the hanger. As background, I just had a baby 3 months prior and my chest and upper body was huge. I tried on several other dresses at RTR at was getting defeated since nothing would fit me in the upper body. This was the last dress I tried on. It was perfect. The scoop back kept me from feeling constricted. The dress was sexy, but gave me enough coverage to not feel self conscious. LOVE!

I ended up not wearing it...

I am normally a 10, ended up renting this in an 8 and 10 but wasn't totally happy with either. The 8 was too tight in my chest and the 10 appeared to be stretched out in some strange places. The material was thinner than expected which made the stretched out parts a bit obvious. I would definitely rent again because it's beautiful in person but probably go up 1 size.

Beautiful color!

The dress is great, color is much more vibrant in person. I got lots of compliments. As with any cap sleeve dress, its hard to raise your arms very high if you plan on doing a lot of dancing!

Formal dress for a formal event.

After reading the reviews on this dress and having limited options I decided to go with it. I received the size 2 and size 4 dresses. Both fit well but the 4 was just a little longer in length so I ended up going with that one. I loved the open back and the fit around the shoulders. I didn't wear a bra with this dress and it worked just fine. Love this dress and the color. I will definitely rent again in the future!

Reunion fun

I am a curvy 6. Fit really well. Comfy and durable as I'd never worn a totally sequined dress before. Had to use a backless bra for sure though. The one that RTR sells worked great.

Glamour and comfort!

I got more compliments on this dress than probably anything I've worn. Dress ran a tad larger than I expected — in particular the arm holes are quite generous, so I'd recommend sizing down if you want more of a sheath effect. It was in perfect condition and, because it stretches and moves easily over the lining, I was able to dance like mad without it bunching or riding up. 10/10 would rent again.

Rented this for a summer wedding.

This dress was fantastic! (My photo does not really capture its majesty!) Lots of compliments all evening, and the sparkles look great on the dance floor! Very minor complaints: it dug in a little at my neck and arms, and it was shorter on me than it looked in the other photos--I should have realized this, since I'm 5'10".

I loved this dress!!! The color was fantastic for a New Years Party!

This dress fit great! It was right during the holidays when you tend to pack on a few pounds. The dress had some stretch, you do need to wear a Nubra or go braless because of the low back. I went with a Nubra (invest in one!!! They are pretty amazing).

Stunning dress if you want to stand out!

I emceed a friends wedding so this was a perfect amount of glam and was so professional in the front with some "party" elegance in the back. I have big boobs so I wore a bra with side stickies and it worked well! I got compliments all night.

The sequins were so sparkly and fun

This dress has a good bit of stretch to it and it was very comfortable. I saw some comments about the sequins or sleeves being scratchy, but I did not experience that. The back is very low cut, so I could not wear a bra, but that was not a problem for me. The shoulders stay in place and don't slide off. The dress was great.

Imma 12, but the backup 14 fit best. The sequin pattern is beauteous. Felt like a princess

The fabric felt a little tacky but slipped on like a dream, and the sequins were arrayed in the most clever, elegant fashion - nothing over-the-top. The skirt provided enough stretch to move in, and the open back provided excellent ventilation. I highly recommend it.

So comfortable and elegant

I wore this to a summer wedding and it was so comfortable. The 4 was a little bit big but I opted for it to be a little less revealing at a family wedding. Then 2 was a little bit more snug in areas but also looked great. Go with the 4 if you want some more length!

Great for a work party

Very comfortable, got lots of compliments. Was able to wear a normal strapless bra just pushed down in the back (if you tuck the draped lining into your bra it will hold it in place and looks good.)

Show stopping dress

I ordered a 4 and a 6. The 4 fit, but it was alittle snug so I went with the 6. Since the dress is backless I didn't wear a bra. The sequins do start to rub under neath you arms, but it wasn't that big of a deal to me. What an awesome dress that is classy and a bit sassy!

Great party dress!

I got this dress for a formal dinner I was attending this summer. I ended up choosing the size 12 instead of the 10 because I wanted a more comfortable fit (and the party I went to was pretty conservative!) although the 10 fit fine. I got a ton of compliments on it, and was able to wear a regular bra with it by tucking the edge of the draped back into my bra. NO one could tell since there is quite a bit of fabric in the back! I would definitely rent this again, or even try it in a different color.

Great experience and dress!

I ordered sizes 4 and 6 and both fit but I went with the larger size due to the sleeves. The size 4 sleeves were a little snug so I went with the size 6. Overall the fit was great and the dress was very comfortable! Highly recommend. You will get many compliments!

Gorgeous dress - I received tons of compliments. A real statement dress!

Wish I got the smaller size since it ran a little big in the arm pit area. I was a little worried about the sequins but they didn't catch or itch, it was comfortable and great to dance in! I would rent it again!

We went to the wedding of one of my husbands close friends.

It fit well. The sleeves didn't bother me as much as some of the other reviewers. I got so many compliments on this dress. It was a semi formal event and I was initially worried it would be too much but it ended up being fine. The length of it makes it less formal I think. It was fun to wear. I paired it with some gold heels that almost looked rose gold and I think it worked well.

Emerald City Dress

My friends and I kept referring to this as my "Emerald City Dress." It definitely made me feel beautiful and the wedding feel extra special! It flattered my curves and was comfortable on top of that (especially once I got the right backless bra from Target). I just wish I hadn't had so much fun that I forgot to take a decent full length picture!
