Fit was great - I wear a 34 C, and usually size 27 jeans. The 4 was too big, but the 2 fit like a glove. Everyone who saw me literally said "WOW thats a great dress!" It's unusual with the sparkles all over it, but still classic looking. The sheer sleeves add a bit of elegance but they arent too big. Highly recommend for the southern girl at summer weddings!

One of the most beautiful dresses I have ever worn

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size

Amazing. I have had my eye on this dress for awhile and finally decided that my Rehearsal Dinner was the perfect occasion to wear it. I have never received more complimements on what I was wearing (except for maybe my wedding day :-) Everyone loved it. It was the perfect length, not too short for the occasion (I am 5'5") but short enough to show a little leg, especially in sky high heels. The sequin detail was perfect the sleeves added a little warmth on a crisp fall evening. I thought the dress ran true to size and hugged my rear enough to show my shape but not too much so that it rode up when I walked. A real showstopper. Highly recommended.

I got both a 0 and a 2 just in case and went with the 0. So if anything, it MAY run a tad large. The only thing was that the sleeves were a tad baggy/awkward, but it was no biggie. Also, one of the layers of tulle (or whatever it was) in the front was hanging (just from previous wears, it seemed), so I had to double-sided tape it - but it was easy enough.

I ordered this dress for my Church's Christmas Party. I got a ton of compliments. This dress has the right amount of sparkle for Christmas and New Years! This dress was fabulous. However, it was a bit snug around my hips and booty and laid oddly across my upper back. Not an issue with the dress itself, I usually have to have dresses altered to bring in the chest/shoulders. I wore Nude closed toed heels and taupe/brown peal earrings.

The dress fit true to size and was very comfortable. The only problem that I had with it was that the middle layer (the dress is made of 3 gauzy layers) hung lower than the outer, sparkly layer. It probably wasn't noticeable to anyone but me but I wasn't happy with it! Fortunately, RTR provides a fit kit so I simply used some hem tape for a super quick, effective fix. I had such an amazing, unforgettable birthday evening in this dress! Thanks for the incredible service, RTR!!

The sparkles!!

The dress was very pretty - you can see it from across the room. The fabric is not very forgiving though, so I recommend going up a size. It was a little difficult to get in and out of the car because there is just no give and I didn't want to tear it. The under layers kept peeking out of the bottom - but it was doing it all the way around, so maybe that's how it fits?? Overall, beautiful dress!!

This dress is beautiful! I went to a really nice resturant in Houston and a number of women stopped me and complimented the dress. It is not form fitting, I wore spanks just because they smooth "things"; but spanx are not required for this dress.

More gorgeous than expected! Loads of compliments! And fellow guest at table had a RTR too! :-)

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Was nervous of the fit since reviews said there's an odd fit to the a-line (complaints of extra fabric bunching in mid section) That comment held true but only when dress is worn more fitted, & not really noticeable. Was very surprised at the difference between sz6 (norm sz) & sz4. Sz6 was VERY hangy and down to my knees. Def order size down if desire fitted look! Beading is beaut in person, AMAZING in pics (mine don't provide justice). Sleeves gorgeously bell BUT 1 elastic band snapped immed. after cocktail hr from minor adjusting! Disappointing! Luckily not TOO noticeable since sleeves are naturally drapey. Waiting on RTR response on that. Exceptional delivery packaging & service as far as RTR goes. ***Funny thing is immediately after arriving to my table I noticed the very long sleeve laced Nicole Miller dress that I considered for this event! Instead of greeting the couple with a hello or my name, it was pointing at her & exclaiming "Nicole Miller, Rent the Runway?!?!". She confirmed & also expressed satisfaction with RTR.

Comfortable, easy to wear and unique

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was great for my growing pregnant belly (I wore at 14.5 weeks). I received a lot of compliments, and I loved that the dress is unique without being gaudy. Like other reviewers have mentioned, one of the slip layers does tend to peek out, but I don't think many people noticed. I normally wear a 6 or 8 in department store sizes, but I had to wear the 10 for this dress. Partly b/c my body is changing from pregnancy, but also partly b/c I think designer dresses are sized smaller than regular retail stores. Overall a lovely dress, and I'm really glad I was able to rent this.

I rented this dress for my holiday party. I saw that it ran small in the hips and since I have big hips, I ordered two sizes bigger than my normal size. I usually wear a 12, but the 14 in this was even too tight. I was relieved that the 16 fit because it really is a beautiful dress. I received loads of compliments from party goers. And in the end it did flatter my figure. Perfect dress for the holidays!

The dress is not quite as "loose" as I'd say it looks in the picture, so I would definitely order your normal size and a size up, just in case you're looking for that looser look. The sequins are delicate, so if you're planning on going rough and tumble with a bunch of kids at a wedding or a family affair, I might suggest another dress -- I had to avoid a niece who wanted to pull off the "diamonds" all night. But overall I got a zillion compliments and felt joyful in the dress. Enjoy!

Being 5'2", this dress hit a bit lower on my leg than the pictured model.Although it runs true to size, The bust for me in the 0 was a bit tight. I wore the 2 to prevent a pulling at the back near the zipper at the bustline. It worked out well but there was a bit of gathering at the waist line due to the increased size all around. It is completely gorgeous!

I liked the look of the dress, but for me it was snug at the bust and snug at the waist/hip area. The dress has a lot of beading so it has a little weight to it, but overall I received tons of compliments on the dress. Great choice for the winter.

I wore this dress for New Years Eve. The photo doesn't do this dress justice! The beading is gorgeous although it does seem very fragile, I had to cut away a few spare strings before heading out but it wasn't really that noticeable. I have slightly larger hips so it was a bit more fitted there but otherwise seemed pretty true to size.

GORGEOUSITY!!!!!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Where to begin.... the pictures do not do this dress justice.... it is absolutely stunning. Light fabric, nice cream color, with the most detailed beutiful bead work I have ever seen. It runs a bit small, so get a size up, but trust me when I say this... you will feel and look stunning!!! Never had I ever thought I would get to wear an $800+ dress to any event. I was extremely lucky to wear this particular dress. It was out of my price range ($125) and although I wanted it so bad I ended up choosing another dress in a $50 range. RTR contacted me the day my dress was due to ship and advised that they did not have my back up size. They worked with me for hours to find a perfect dress. My stylist Serena was just amazing. I picked this dress and RTR shipped it to me at no additional cost with my original dress. When the box arrived I was stunned to see two beutiful dresses to choose from. This one won as it just has this WOW factor. RTR also has this dress in midnight blue I just wish I had another event back to back as I never got to wear the second dress. Next event is coming up in February.... RTR, what to wear???!!!!

The fit was perfect, the color great for a winter event. The only drawback was that the sequins were a bit loose due to the previous wear on the dress and the lining did not quite align at the bottom seam. Otherwise, this dress draws strangers in to you to talk about how pretty the dress is and how well it fits.

Great for standing out and being formal/unique even in a sea of long gowns.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress to attend a Campaign Staff Inaugural Ball - and had waited until the last minute (Saturday night for a Tuesday start date!), so all of the floor length gowns were booked in my size. I was wringing my hands about a) the dress arriving on time and b) the length for a highly formal event, but RTR service was incredible and the dress arrived hours before I had to begin to worry. Also, if you have a petite frame and aren't especially leggy, DON'T trust the model in the picture, the length is not a concern at all - it went down to my knees. The 0 fit very comfortably with lots of breathing room, especially in the bust area. If you're relatively flat-chested (like myself) I'd order the smaller of the sizes you think you need. Not as form fitting as it appears on the model, which was fine for me since I wanted to veer more chic conservative and not "party girl" for an official event. I didn't try the backup size 2 on when it came but I imagine it would have been too large. Since it was freezing cold, I wore it with nude hose and pumps. (Two of the photos were taken the day after the event, minus hair/makeup/hose - I only had time for blurry photos at the ball.) I got tons of compliments at the dance and people even came up to me to give them - it's perfect for anything winter and anything formal. Spotted lots of other RTR styles Inauguration weekend, too!
