Didn't get to wear this because the material irritated by arms, the gold part is made out of sequin type material and scratched the skin making it unbearable to wear. I'm 5'1 and if I wore 5 inch heels the length of it came perfect. This dress would have been beautiful to wear only if the good portion of the material was made with something else.

STYLIST REVIEW
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
IN LOVE. If I had a black tie event to attend every day, I would wear this dress. The fit is phenomenal and hugs all of the right places. When it is on the body it slims the figure, and gives all the right amount of shine. Not too much. Be sure to never be forgotten if you wear this dress! HIGHLY recommend this look. If you have an hourglass figure, rent this dress! You will turn heads! This fits true to size! I would size up if you are curvy in the hips/have a bust, and down if you are more straight and narrow/ have a smaller bust.

This was my first experience and you now have a customer for life. Thanks!

I am a size 4 and this dress (size 4) fit perfectly. I ordered the 6, just in case, but didn't need it. Fit so well didn't even need a bra. I am 5'7" and with 4" heels the dress hem did not hit the floor. So I wished this came in long (v just regular). But overall, was extremely happy. This was a one-of-a-kind dress, which is what I wanted for this gala. Well done Rent the Runway!

This dress ran a llitle small and there was a slit in the front that I did not see. So I did not wear this dress to my event.

Extremely small in the chest/rib cage area.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Unfortunately, I was not able to wear this dress because it was abnormally tight in the chest area. I was able to zip it with the help of a friend, but it was way too tight and uncomfortable to consider wearing all night. The top is really beautiful, but the fabric on the bottom half wasn't quite what I expected. To me, it looked like a thick polyester suit from the 70's than an elegant and feminine. If you decide to rent this dress, be sure to size up, and that the heavy fabric won't be too warm for your occasion.

I wore this at a Masquerade Ball and it was perfect. the bodice fits like a glove and the slit up the middle of the skirt is a head-turner!

BAD Customer service,
Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fit great and was beautiful on. The problem was the sequins in the top scratched my arms (even forarms) so much they were almost bleeding! This was just in trying it on! That was not the problem because I may have come up with a solution. The problem came when I tried to contact customer service to ask them to send a different style just in case. I could not get any reply from phone calls or e-mails. I was so worried I just sent it back near the 24 hr limit because I was afraid I wouldn't have a dress and I would still have to pay for rental. It has been almost 1 week and I still have not gotten any reply from RTR! I had to buy a dress less than 24 hours before my event. I asked for a full refund but so far have not even received confirmation of the return! I will not use them again!

Stunning dress. Compliments all night!

This flatters a small waist and bust, but loves the curves, too. Compliments from ladies and guys, too.

I was lured in by the model wearing this dress. It was my first pick, didn't fit. Odd design.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I was really excited to wear this dress. I was sent 4R and 6R. The bust was huge. The straps were too short, so the sequins rubbed your armpit in a painful way. It had a tiny waist and then it was very heavy with fabric on the bottom. If you are an hourglass (read very, very busty) with a tiny waist, this is your dress. It is an exceptionally well made dress, structured and heavy. Was sad it didn't fit.

The dress definitely made a good impression.
Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I attended a charity ball, comparable to New York standards, so I am happy that I wore the dress. It was totally appropriate. I wasn't crazy about the dress, however. I have an hour glass figure - 36 - 31 - 40 and wore a size 10. It looked good but didn't fit quite right for comfort in the breast area. It wanted to flatten my breasts, so I had to wear a stick on bra to round out the bodice and place padding inside that. The biggest issue I had is the gold fabric scratched the inside of my right arm constantly. I had to put vitamin E on the affected area when I got home. Maybe the dress was damaged from dry cleaning over time because you can't tell this would be a problem when looking at it. But some of the fabric in the gold is rough, some smooth, so I think that could be a factor. I had tried to get a backup dress on the day after they shipped it because I wasn't 100% sure about the dress and went by the reviews. So, if you order this dress my advice is to order a back up for the approximately $32 that is offered upon checkout.
