look great, be comfy
Really comfy and form fitting without being too tight or scratchy. The length made it pleasantly conservative, and the off the shoulder sleeves kept it fun and youthful. Really, very beautiful and flattering to my hourglass shape.

Elegant
It is a very elegant dress, but ran large especially in the waist and hips. The reviews said size up, but I should have just ordered a size 6. The sleeves were comfortable and the overall color is lush and very enticing.

Eye catching and flattering dress - perfect for a fancy night out!
Overall, this was a great rental. I received many compliments on the fit, style and sparkle of this dress. As other reviewers have reported, the color has quite a greenish/brown/black undertone, and there is a distinct floral pattern to the gold overlay. Cut is very flattering, but there is little stretch to this dress and it has very slim arms...although there are zippers along the forearms, it doesn't give much wiggle room. Slim cut skirt as well, with little stride room when walking/upstairs. There are four (!) attachment pieces of ribbon to assist in hanging the dress, which were very short, poorly placed and consistently popped out throughout the course of the night...really a shame for an otherwise flawless dress. I generally run between sizes but read reviews carefully and went with a 6. Glad I did. Don't have large arms but they never would have fit in a 4. Great sparkle and wears easily. I paired with gold and brown jewelry, black tights and heels to wear to the opera.

Compliments like "classy, elegant, and lovely"
This dress was perfect for attending a broadway musical that was on tour here. It definitely ran small. I typically wear a 0 in other dresses, but since that wasn't an option, I rented the 2 and 4. I ended up wearing the 4! With my bust and shoulders, the 2 was just too tight, and I would not have been able to move. The 4 fit a bit better up top, but I had to sacrifice a little less form-fitting on my hips. All in all, it was a beautiful dress that looks even better in person than in photographs. Many people stopped me to give compliments I appreciated the modesty it provided as it was just above my knees (shocking for being 5'11"). The sleeves were a little short for my arms, but that is normal for me. I wore a regular bra but just scooted the straps off the shoulder a little bit. The amount of sparkle was perfect.

Really cute and comfortable.
This dress is really easy to wear. I've rented this one twice. I would recommend it for any occasion where you want to mix it up and not just wear another "little black dress." Its a fabulous "little gold dress."

This dress definitely hugs curves!
I ordered two sizes--10 & 12. My usual dress size is a size 10. I could have made the 12 work...but I would have been self-conscious trying to "suck it in" all night. The ruched feature at the waist did not camouflage my post-baby belly enough for my taste. Even with spanx, the dress was too form fitting for me. The arms were great on me (I'm narrow in the shoulders and very petite arms). BUT my sister-in-law (my size, but maybe slightly wider shoulders) could not fit into the arms. The dress was very pretty, but just didn't work with my body or hers, unfortunately. This style was a long shot, so I'm glad I ordered another dress and loved!

I had read that women got lots of compliments on this dress - it was true for me too! It stood out.
The dress was true to size, and comfortable. The one problem was that the lining was longer than the dress.

My night was full of fun and compliments!
The dress was very pretty and true to size. The only con was I wish the material was stretchy and the dress was just a tad bit shorter. Also I had to pin the slip that was under the dress because it was showing and you couldn't pull it up.

My first time with RTR.
Didn't get the chance to wear the dress because I couldn't zip it over my shoulders. For busty gals who lift, I advise against this dress. I was pretty disappointed.

Everyone loved this dress, I received compliments all night long!
Thanks to the previous reviews I ordered 2 sizes up. I normally wear a 16 so I ordered an 18 and a 20 for the back-up size. I wore the 20 and it was just right. And as previous review also stated, you do have to make sure the hanger straps are secure if not, they will annoy you all night. Everything was perfect for me; I have no complaints about this dress. My advice for anyone ordering: always read the reviews, if I hadn't I probably wouldn't have been able to wear the original size I wanted.

The dress was fabulous: Well made, stylish, well worth the money! It was a big hit!
I am big busted, so I needed the size 4 instead of size 2--great that they send 2 sizes! It was a glamorous dress and the cut was so flattering! I can't wait for my next formal event--I will never buy a dress again!

Opulent but Chic and Sexy
I get nervous about gold, especially gold lace, but for my husband's work party with a masquerade theme; this dress was perfect! I received many complaints from women on how unique of a dress it is.. After reading other reviews about the arms/sleeves being tight, I made sure to size-up for my back-up size. However, being textbook pear shaped, the 8 fit like a glove, even in the arms. To fit my hips, the top is usually too big, but this "negative" (most hourglass women complained about) was a plus for my pear shape. Bustier, broad shouldered women...definitely get a size-up or two. Pear shaped, thin or smaller chested: this dress will be perfect for you!

Beautiful and comfortable!
This dress was for a work holiday party. Perfect fit. The material wasn't itchy at all. The off the shoulder was easy to wear and I didn't have to fuss with the dress. I even wore a normal bra with the straps off the shoulder. Lace is more of a super dark brown with gold threaded floral. Much more elegant in person than expected!

This dress has absolutely no stretch. The sleeves were really small on both the 10 and the 12. I was able to get both dresses over my hips, but the sleeves were the deal breakers. The dress was really pretty, but I couldn't wear the dress.

Classy/comfy and flattering but kind of dull/elderly vibe.
The outside fabric is scratchy but the lining helped, the color was pretty lame. I am 4 months pregnant and the stretch was helpful/comfy around my midsection, flattering as well. The neckline is pretty, almost off the shoulder, but the color is lame. I hoped for a "wow" dress and this was not that.

Wore this dress for a New Years Eve party.
I have athletic, slender arms and shoulders and it was very tight in the arms and shoulders. I had to size up to get them to fit but them the stomach/torso was baggy. I'm tall and it was fairly long, but when I sat, it rode up quite a bit. I am fairly straight (no hips), so maybe if my hips were wider, it would have kept the torso more snug.

Gorgeous dress; Perfect for Corp Holiday Party
Yes this dress is beautiful; the material is thick & will keep you warm, but BEWARE the TINY/TIGHT Sleeves!!! I could have worn the 8 if not for the arms...I barely even got the 10 on because the sleeves. Regardless the dress was mostly comfortable & the unique color and exaggerated boat-neck style make this a stand out; received plenty of compliments. Recommend, but with caution unless you have really thin arms.

Modest length still gives sexy silhouette!
Loved how this dress wasn't too short and had long sleeves. It worked great for a more conservative wedding! The sleeves were very tight so I'm glad that I ordered a larger backup size!

Awesome dress, don't hesitate to rent this one!
I rented this for a work Christmas party and received tons of complements. I love the neckline, sexy but yet "work people" appropriate. I ordered a 10 and 12 based on previous reviews but the 10 fit perfectly. The dress almost looks like a bronzy/gold/green once you put it on. Don't need much jewelry, earrings are all I wore, the neckline is lovely enough to not need a necklace.

Sleeves were too tight
I usually wear a size 8 comfortably. The dress was a lovely material: not too glitzy but just the right amount of sparkle for an evening holiday event. I don't think I have extraordinarily large upper arms, so I was disappointed that the sleeves were too tight. There was no give.

I got tons of compliments on this dress! The color looks great with blonde hair too.
This dress is fitted, but probably runs true to size. I don't ever wear anything that isn't fit and flare so this was a new silhouette for me. I paired it with high waisted spanx and a strapless bra and felt very confident despite my tummy. Great dress for the gal who is testing out the waters on a fitted dress.

I felt like a million bucks!
I had put on a little weight recently and didn't want to go buy another dress. A colleague told me about Rent the Runway. This dress grabbed attention and a ton of compliments! Dress was comfortable and very flattering; snug but not too tight. Although the neckline could be worn at the peak of the shoulders/just off the shoulders, I was able to wear a regular bra with it and the straps didn't show. The underskirt/lining stuck out a little below the outer layer, but some hem tape did the trick.

The people.
Great dress, but not made for athletic figures, it was too tight on my arms, it was very hard to zip up because it was tight on my shoulders. The waist was a bit loose and it was really tight on my legs and made it difficult to walk. I think it made me look bigger than I am. I still received a ton a compliments and was great for a winter wedding.

the lining fell lower than the top layer and I felt like I constantly had to adjust.
The neckline was very constricting and the sleeves seemed to run small. I am normally a size 6, and ordered an 8, and it was still tight. I didn't end up even wearing the dress in fear of being uncomfortable the entire night

If you don't like something a little tighter on the arms...not for you. Also GET A GOOD STRAPLESS! There is not a lot of give on the dress, so if you are in-between sizes you may want to opt for a size up.

Loved this dress!! Was very comfortable. Perfect for fall wedding.
Very comfortable. Felt it ran a tad small, glad I got the size 10. Loved the neckline. Long enough so there was no awkward tugging throughout the night. Not too tight so dancing was possible. Downside: you can see everything, rouching in back made it better. Also lace overlay had tiny holes. Luckily you couldn't really tell. Sales rep I called was wonderful and was willing to send a new dress but I declined because it was not very noticeable.
