Dancing!
Great dress! Fits true to size, but I would suggest ordering up if you are curvy because it is snug in the hip area. However, it is stretchy! The stretch in the material was super comfortable for dancing. It was difficult to raise my arms above my head (like other reviewers noted). Also, I have scratch marks all over my inner arms from the sequins- likely from vigorous dancing- so beware if you are also a vigorous dancer. No regrets about renting this dress!

Everybody loved the dress!!!! Lots of compliments!!
I normally wear a 12 and I did in this dress as well but I would suggest when you order sizes order your normal size and a size down. It was such a comfortable dress. And flattering! Loved the green for the holidays! I wore an adhesive backless bra. Worked perfectly! I wish I could buy this dress!!!

This dress was just enough sparkle to make a splash but still perfectly classy!
It fit like a glove. I'm curvy and it does hug the body closely - so something to keep in mind when it comes to undergarments! I wore this dress to sing in a fundraiser and it made me feel confident and beautiful!

Sleek, sophisticated and sexy!
This dress was definitely a hit at the party. I highly recommend it. I got tons of compliments from everyone. It is sleek and sophisticated , and yet very sexy at the same time, because of the scooped open back. I am usually not into sequins, but because of the dark color, it was perfect. It runs pretty true to size. I am 5'9", I have wide hips, and a butt, with a smaller bust. I usually wear an 8-10 in pants, and a medium in tops. For this dress, I wore a 10.

Shiny dresses and tipsy reviews.
Damn. This dress. As a red head with a very large back tattoo, it was as if the dress gods created this with me in mind. I'm a 30F (37-38 bust), 28in waist, 42in hips with both wide hips and a very large booty and the 4 was near perfection (the waist was a tiny bit big, but I filled that space with booze and food eventually). I do have disproportionately chubby arms, which I was initially concerned about and almost considered sizing up to accommodate, but it didn't need to in the end. Only weirdness with the design/construction of the dress is the sleeves--there's absolutely no give between the sleeves and the chest, so when raising your arms, the whole dress move up. I had some redness and irritation on my neck/chest from a few rogue sequins rubbing, but it wasn't a deal breaker. Length was actually remarkably close to the pictured model (and I'm just shy of 5ft4). Elegant, fun dress. I got a lot of compliments, but my favorite was definitely a drunken "You have my favorite--wait, second favorite--dress!" I'll take it. Wore it with some large but understated earrings, a few silver rings, nude pumps, and my long hair straight and pulled off to one shoulder.

the dress color was perfect for the Fall, and the sequins were subtle but added elegance
the size 4 fit, but if the 2 had been available I would have rented that size. because it was a looser fit, I had to purchase a backless bra for support

Most elegant comfy dress, so flattering
Fit like glove, soft lining, didn't scratch and has good stretch to it . Back waterfall style falls beautifully- stick on bra without straps required.

Sparkly, elegant, fun and easy to wear
I felt sooo glamorous in this dress. It fit very nicely, there was no bunching or panty lines. Was able to wear a normal bra with it, there's a tab in the back that I was able to tuck into the strap and it keep the back and shoulder straps hidden. Was a scene stealer for sure, received more compliments on this dress than I could've ever imagined. Danced the night away, no spanks or other shaping gear necessary. Didn't chafe my arms either like some reviewers mention.

The material is somewhat stretchy so I was easily able to wear a size down than I normally would. The back swoops down so I had to wear a stick on bra. The color and shimmer of the dress was absolutely gorgeous.

This was a perfect wedding guest dress- it received many compliments throughout the night.
I wore this dress to my friend's fall wedding and loved it. The material stretches so it's comfortable to wear, but it's also thick so even though it's form fitted, it is very flattering. Also since the dress is backless, the thickness of the dress made it possible for me to go braless, otherwise you would have to wear a strapless without a back. The sleeves were a little tight (they're not stretchy like the rest of the dress), but not to the point where it really affected me very much. I am normally a size 4 and this fit perfectly and was also a great length for someone who is on the taller side like I am. I would highly recommend it for a nicer occasion!
ElizaOctober 14, 2014
Could I get away with a strapless or no chance?
CassieOctober 20, 2014
You definitely need a backless strapless bra for this, the back is pretty exposed.

This dress definitely runs 1-2 sizes large. I'm usually a 6 and wore a 4 and could have done the 2 also. Fit was great... Very stretchy material. I wore a strapless low back bra. Very happy... Would wear again.

Love the open back
I really loved this dress, although I went with a different option. I ordered a 6, but think a 4 would have been better. There was just a little bit too much material around the waste. Loved the open back and the color was beautiful. I definitely intend to rent it again but in the smaller size.

I think it runs true to size but this one was a little stretched. Color was beautiful.
I was disappointed I didn't order the size 2 for my second dress. Im usually a 4, but I think this one was stretched from another person?! It still fit nicely, more straight down instead of fitted. One other thing to think about all sequined dresses, under the arm, it rubs and is uncomfortable. I wish dress makers would figure that out! It was beautiful in color. it can be worn backwards for major boobage. Cant wait until my next order!

The best dress for a wedding! So many compliments!
This dress was fantastic for a curvy girl like me. It fits close to the body, but is thick enough lay really smoothly and to be incredibly flattering. The back adds just enough sass, but the dress still feels really classy and elegant. The sparkle was definitely a hit, but without being overwhelming. I wish I could keep it!

The dress was admired and complimented all evening.
The fit was slightly loose but did not take away from the overall great look. I kept the accessories to a minimum as the dress was the "attraction." So, small gold and emerald earrings, small black jet bracelet, black satin shoes, and an antique black bag. Upon entering from the outside I had a pair of long black antique gloves on. Many guests commented on the dress when they saw it from the front, but actually went wild wihen they saw the back. In a room full of black dresses, this was a real stand-out.

This dress got literally hundreds of complements! People told me I looked like a movie star!
The dress is slinky and not a tight tailored fit, so it is quite stretchy. I definitely recommend sizing down if you are in between sizes - I am normally a 4/6 and the 4 fit very well. I liked the fact that the stretch allowed the dress to form fit to my body - I have an hourglass/pear shape figure and this really showed off my booty! My favorite part of the dress is the draped back, but this means that you cannot wear a normal bra with it. I wore my NuBra and it worked great - I highly recommend NuBra as a backless bra. I also recommend wearing this dress with Spanx - I tried the dress on at first without them and it hugged me strangely where my curves were uneven, but when I wore my Spanx thong with it fell perfectly into place. All in all, this dress is a great dress for a black tie or formal affair, and I highly recommend it! I got tons of complements and I really felt great - so much so that I almost didn't send it back!

Very fun dress. Super comfortable.
Super sparkly, stretchy and comfortable. I just had my second kid 7mos ago and am not really sure what size I am right now. Size 4 fit better then 2, but the model looks like she is wearing dress even looser...but I worry top wouldn't stay put if bigger. This would not be great for those who prefer chest support, and the drapery in the back can give your silhouette an odd shape in some photographs. Overall I really loved it--made for a fun festive night!

When attending a musical about drag queens, sequins are a mandate!
I wore this dress to the theater to see Kinky Boots, so the bar for glamour was set high! Several strangers approached me to compliment the dress, and my friends couldn't stop talking about it! I was thrilled with how the dress looked and the compliments I received. It was very comfortable to wear, but be warned, it's pretty unforgiving at the belly. Also a bit tricky finding a bra that works with the open back.

The wedding was a black tie optional wedding.
Loved this dress, made me feel super sexy! The back drape was perfect and not too large. The only problem was the sequin went all the way up into the armhole so they did scratch my arms a little.

Stunning dress. Perfect for Fall Wedding or any night out
First Time renter so I was worried. This dress was perfect for a fall wedding reception. The back is elegant and if you aren't big on top you can get away without a bra since the material is thick. I'm usually a size 10-12 and the size 12 fit perfectly since it hugged my curbs but wasn't overly clingy like the 10 since it's sparkly I didn't want it to be too tight and shiny. I not only got tons of compliments at the wedding but even folks online when I posted picture on my Facebook were crazy over this dress. First Time renter and I'm dying to do it again. They made this whole process painless. I'm a fan and recommend it to my friends. I would rent this dress for any fall dinner, wedding, corporate Christmas party, the list goes on that's how well this dress fits any occasion. I also rented the clutch earrings and bracelet to complete the look. I felt and looked amazing. My little ones thought I was like Tinkerbell all sparkly in green

Pictures yes, Dancing no
Though I received many compliments on this dress, I would not recommend it. I had to go up a size because the cap sleeve was too tight. Even going up a size didn't help much; I could not lift my arms passed my shoulders. Since I went up a size the dress was baggy around the waist... I would have liked to gone down a size or 2 in the middle.

The back is what makes this dress. The dress is stretchy, so I could have worn either the 2 or the 4, but opted for the 4 which was slightly looser in the arms. The sequins are a little scratchy under the arms, but not too bad. Really awesome dress.

Gorgeous dress, would definitely rent again
I thought this dress was perfect for a winter wedding in Florida. Great color and the sequins were beautiful. It was also very comfortable, I was able to eat and dance without worrying about it. At 5'2, the dress covered my knees as a professional pencil skirt would. I thought the length suited the occasion. I wore it with black pumps and a little leopard clutch. I would definitely rent this again, especially given the price. Well worth it!

Gorgeous dress!!
Gorgeous dress! Came in very good, like-new condition. I am normally a size 2 (34B, 130 lbs, 5'6", for reference) but easily fit into size 0. The dress is very flattering and comfortable. Danced like crazy and no issues with dress - except I couldn't hug my dear cousin whose was wearing a full lace dress- it caught once. Overall, wonderful rental!!

Everyone was saying how great I looked in the dress and wondering were I got it
The dress fit well, but the hem was falling off so i had to fix it myself. The shoulders were a little tight but I still would stay with the 2 because a four would have been too big, overall it was a great dress.

Standout dress, gorgeous color!
I got this dress because I wanted something that stood out from the typical little black dress. This dress did! The color was gorgeous. I loved the draped back and wore a long tassel back necklace with it. The sleeves hit across the upper arm so I couldn't lift my arms up very high but it wasn't really an issue. By the end of the night, the sequins rubbing against the inside of my arm were a little irritating. I had to cut a couple of threads hanging from the dress but it wasn't noticeable. The end of the zipper causes a slight bump on the side of the dress (right at hip level for me) which is why I decided to go with the size 8 because it was looser and made that less noticeable.

I wore this dress to my rehearsal dinner and it was absolutely a hit! The dress is very classic, until you turn around and you have the low back stunner. I received so many compliments on the dress and I felt absolutely fabulous in it. Would definitely recommend and rent again in the future!

Something just a little different.
I wore this dress for a company holiday party and I have to say I was the only one in a green dress. Overall, the dress is very comfortable and form fitting without being inappropriate. The length was nice but did find myself pulling it down throughout the night. As others have mentioned the sequins under the armpits is scratchy but nothing horrible. I did wear a normal bra but had an extender to pull down the back strap.

Very beautiful dress!!!
I loved this dress! I wore it for my office holiday party, cocktail attire. It definitely runs big; I'm usually a 6 and based on the reviews I ordered a 2 and a 4. I could've worn the 2, because even the 4 was slightly large, but the 4 looked more classy. The back is the show stopper; I didn't even get a picture with that back! I got a ton of compliments and felt very beautiful. I had a great first rent the runway experience and I would totally do it again. :)

This was the perfect dress for a engagement party with cocktail attire.
This dress fit perfectly and was wonderful on the caboose! Lots of compliments were given and I would have actually loved to add this to my closet permanently. I am 5'4' and the dress hit me perfectly at the top of the knee.

After losing 65+ pounds over the last year, I wanted to show off my new figure. Mission Accomplished
Quite thankful I ordered the size 6 with the size 4 as the backup, since the 4 fit much better. I had to wear a stick on bra, since the back drapes far too low to even wear a low backed one. Sequins were not itchy/scratchy. My only qualm is that the material wanted to bunch upward at my hips, so I did end up pulling the bottom of the dress down frequently.
