Although I didn't wear this dress I loved it. It arrived on time and was in perfect condition.
This dress is very forgiving. I was nervous about wearing something that form fitting, but it hid all my imperfections perfectly...along with the help of Spanxx :-). It ran true to size. I am between a 4 and 6 and opted for the 6 since it looked so tight. I think the 4 would have fit as well. I thought the sequins would bother my skin but it was honestly very comfortable to have on. The only negative thing I would say is it wasn't long enough for my taste. I am fairly short (5'4) and without shoes it fit but showed my toes. Personally I like to have my feet covered in a dress or it feels like wearing jeans that aren't quite long enough. I would absolutely get this dress again for another event but opt for a 6 long instead.

Hosted a black tie gala for my hubby's 50th. Thank you RTR for being this girl's fairy Godmother;-)
Perfect length, perfect fit! I'm only 5'3 so I was worried but with a small heel it was perfection.

I was complemented all night long! The dress was perfect, fit beautifully and I felt amazing in it!
Everything about this dress was perfect! I range from a size 10 to 12 and I'm 5'7 and I wore the 12L. I wore three inch heels and the dress flowed perfectly. Definitely can't wear a normal bra and I decided to get a strapless push up because the built-in bra doesn't really do much. I felt like a million bucks and I can't wait to use rtr again!

Gorgeous, classic and comfortable glitzy gown!
I rented this dress for my work's Christmas party. I felt great in it all night and got tons of compliments. I'm 5'10", 225 lbs and wore 2 inch kitten heels with the 16L and it was perfect. The 16XL was too long. I also wore spans underneath to smooth me out.

I love that you get 2 sizes!
I wore this dress for a fancy-shmancy holiday party. It was a huge hit! I got many compliments on it! It fit wonderfully very comfortable. I opted to wear flats because as I wore heels the bottom of the dress was getting caught in them. Not a huge deal, it was more for comfort. It fit very true to size!

I really loved how easy this was! This was my first rental and it was great!
I wore this to a semi-formal NYE party on Navy Pier in Chicago. It was gorg! I used to wear tiaras and gowns at Walt Disney World, but I felt even more beautiful in this gown than I ever did there! I ordered both a 6L and an 8L. I ended up wearing the 8 because the 6 was too short once I had heels on. I would absolutely rent this one again, I didn't want to return it!!

Enjoyed this dress as it was great for a black tie.
The off the shoulder/arm area tends to have an odd fit. I couldn't get the ideal comfort level in this area and I kept trying to maneuver and fix but nothing seemed to work.

This dress was sooo fun, classy and sexy!!!
I absolutely loved this dress for the black tie fundraiser I attended. It fit like a glove but was still very comfortable too, no spanx needed. It does also have a built in bra but being a 34DDD I still wore a strapless even thought it would have been fine without. It wasn't as heavy as I expected so that was a nice surprise. I did find the 8L still a bit long with 4" heels but it wasn't a big deal, would rather have it too long than too short. You do need help getting it on/off but also not a big deal. It was a little tough getting it on and zipped the first time, but then it was fine. This was my first RTR experience and I was 100% happy with everything. Wish I could have kept this dress!!! :)

Glamorous Dress!!
Very glamorous dress that fit my body curves well but I am 5'8" and wore 3 1/2 inch heels and I felt that the 6 long was a bit too long on me. (Maybe I was sent an extra long by mistake) Also my heels did get stuck in the train a few times while simply just walking. It was a very cold night and the dress kept me warm because of the thickness of the sequined material. This was my first rental with RTR and the whole process was very smooth and the return so easy. I will definitely be using them again.

Runs true to size. I wore this for a charity ball, and it looked and fit great! It is a little stretchy, which makes for a great fit.

Great service. Made me feel special.
I normally wear a size 14 but found the 16R fit better. It was a bit long for my 5'2 frame but with 3" heels I was able to work with the length.

Great dress overall. Sparkly and feminine.
I enjoyed the dress overall. I was disappointed in the length though. I ordered the 14R and wound up wearing the 16R because it was WAY too short. I am 5'6, wore 2 inch heels and even without the heels on, my ankles showed. Definitely order a longer length. I wore the 16 because the length was a little better. My arms were pretty uncomfortable (the sleeves were tight) in the 14 which is another reason I went with the bigger size. The bust could have had a little more structure. For someone with swollen pregnant DD breasts it made me look really flat which is hard to do lol. I know it seems like all I'm doing is complaining, just want you to know what I would have wanted changed. I did feel beautiful in this dress. It sparkles like no other and it made me feel super feminine. However, I probably would not order this dress again.

Absolutely perfect! Wish I could keep it.
Absolutely loved this dress. Compliments all night. I'm a bit larger on the bottom and usually don't go for form fitting silhouettes, but this dress was perfect. Flattering in all of the right places. A little itchy around the sleeves and bust, but well worth it. I wore 4" heels and the length was good. Maybe a little short, but I wasn't tripping all night. Wish I could have kept it!

My bestie had to use my extra size due to a fashion emergency! So glad to have the two sizes!
We have similar body types and both found the dress perfect! The fabric hung perfectly and was incredibly flattering! Tons of cat calls and compliments! Junior League Casino Night and no one else had the same dress!

this was such a classic dress. the black sequins gave it old-Hollywood glamour!
fit of this dress was incredible. I had no issues with the sleeves-- they were actually my favorite part of the dress! the overall look of this dress was so timeless and classic. the black sequins really added so much to this dress. if you are looking for a classic looking dress but still want glamour and style, I strongly recommend!!

Did not wear - not flattering
The reviews on this dress made it seem worth trying. Unfortunately, it just didn't work for me. I usually can make a dress pop (hourglass figure), but this just didn't look good on me. Ended up wearing a different choice. RTR was great with sending me a different dress.

I loved wearing this dress. Wish I didn't have to send to it back.
This was my back up dress after my original Fred didn't fit. After going back and forth with the very helpful consultant she suggested this dress. It fit perfect and I felt confident in it. I don't like my arms or my stomach and it hid both. It accentuated my features without focusing on my problem areas. I didn't want to send it back. It was very heavy. I'm average height and ordered the long. It was all that was left. I had to hold it while I walked but it made it seem more elegant. The regular would have probably been perfect length. Dress was heavy and I got hot easily.

Love this dress! However saw someone else wearing it at my event so that was a bummer.
Not sure if the fit is small or true to size since I'm in between sizes currently after having my 3rd son 2 months ago. I have been wearing a 14 but in this dress I needed the 16. The dress was comfortable and not too heavy to wear. A bunch of sequins were coming undone and the zipper kept getting stuck on them. My heels also got caught on the inside of the dress once or twice but overall it was a great dress. My husband loved it!

Sexy and classy at the same time
At first I tried on the 4 and it must have been a little big cuz it looked like it added weight. But the 2 fit well and looked great. What I love is that you can move the sleeves a bit. It's very comfortable the whole night. And I got so many compliments. It was a good length -I'm 5'6 and had the 2R - it touches the ground in the back with my normal 2 1/2 inch heels. This was perfect for a fall outdoor event with the sleeves but wasn't such a heavy fabric that I was weighted down. Loved it!

Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful!
I didn't end up wearing this, but it was absolutely gorgeous! The first dress ended up working and this was my back up dress. When ordering this dress, you should probably get your regular size and one size down. There is a built in corset that holds you in. This dress is so figure flattering. I think many women of all shapes and sizes would look amazing in it! It is stunning!

Gorgeous dress but restricts arm motion
It's snug across the top and around the arms so it restricts a movement.. No raising arms while dancing :) I might have gotten away from wearing a bra because it's snug enough but it's itchy so I wore one anyway. Overall though.. it's beautiful.. Surprisingly light weight and giving at the waist so it's comfortable there.

So many people told me I looked stunning in this gown.
I felt amazing in this dress & am sad to send it back. I rented it for a New Year's Eve party and absolutely loved it. I am small on top with a full booty. I wore Spanx to flatten my tummy. This dress flattered my shape well with strapless push-up bra and the dress pulled down a bit. I danced in it comfortably all night long.

Unending compliments and it wasn't even my wedding!
I wore this dress to a black tie wedding and was overall very pleased. I have broad shoulders and a large bust line, which made the dress a little small up top. However, the material is forgiving and I was able to get into it. It flowed beautifully and was just the right length. I got compliments all night.

Great experience and a beautiful dress!
This was my first RTR experience -- I attended a black tie conference dinner with my husband in New Orleans and wanted a dress that was as special as the event. This dress was not my first choice, but it was a great fit and surprisingly comfortable. The only difficulty is that the regular length was longer than expected and I really needed 3" heels for the dress not to drag on the floor (I am 5'4"). I feel that it was flattering overall and definitely elegant. I am looking forward to using RTR again soon!

Easy!
I'm 5'7" and I felt the dress was a little long. However, the guidelines said to order a long if you were over 5'6", not sure how a regular would have looked. I loved this dress! It stretched out a bit as the night wore on and started to slide down and show more cleavage. The zipper is tough to zip due to the sequins.

Dress fit perfectly! Was true to size and the length was perfect with 2 1/2 inch-3 inch heels. Off the shoulder fit snugly so it did not slip and stayed in place the entire evening.

I got so many compliments on this dress! People I didn't know would walk up to me complement me.
The reviews online were incredibly helpful and were right on, the dress ran a little long, and other reviewers were correct, I couldn't zip it up without help. But the sequins weren't itchy, and I felt very secure all night. I will definitely be renting from rent the runway again, and for anyone that does, I strongly recommend reading reviews, particularly from those people who are similar size to you that rented that same dress that you're looking at. Their comments were helpful and accurate! Thank you for great service, Rent the Runway!
