Just the right amount of sparkle for a business Christmas party.

This dress is made from a textured material with silver thread woven in. It photographs very silver/shiny with some photography flash. It was very comfortable and conservative enough for a business holiday party. I wore the size 6 and it was a little roomy in the belly and bust but comfortable and not tight at all through the hips. Maybe I should have gone with the 4? I'll never know. I had the 8 as a back up and it was definitely too big. Bottom line, I would recommend the dress.

Pretty pattern but wasn't a flattering fit

I ordered as a backup because it felt pretty safe compared to my first choice. I really thought I'd end up wearing it but the first choice worked out better. This one seemed to run big in the arm holes and chest area. It wasn't flattering on me at all.

So many compliments at work holiday party!!

Flattering shift dress, with beautiful lace details. The actual color of the dress is a silver with some gold threads throughout, so it is a sparkly dress, but still looks grown up enough to not make one feel like a disco ball. Fun and easy to dance in, very comfortable dress. The candle light caught the dress at my angles, a perfect number for a dim room. Will consider renting again.

This dress is stunning! Much prettier than the photo. Very comfortable and flattering.

RTR recommends going a size up on your back up, but I disagree. I wear an 8 and wish I had a 6. I think it would have been more figure flattering. It's like jewelry on your body so you don't need a lot of extras. It is very comfortable.

Perfect for a holiday party!

I typically wear a size 2 but the 4 fit much better through the bust and shoulders. The stitched pattern of the dress was beautiful and received many compliments. It was the perfect length for a work function but easily transitioned for the night out afterward!

Great dress runs a tad small

The dress was beautiful, I got tons of compliments. It does run a tad small. I usually am between and 8 and 10. I wore the 10 and it was a little tight through the bust. It seemed to loosen up and hang better through the evening. Also it appears more gold in person than it does online.

Pretty but too big

To be fair I'm more of a 00 but that's why I like rent the runway bc designers have a more tailored fit. True this is a shift but still too big for me

Festive and fabulous!!

I rented this dress for my firm's holiday party. It was SO shiny! I paired it with red heels and it was perfect for a festive occasion. As far as the fit, I am larger in the bust and have relatively broad shoulders. The 6 fit great at the top but the rest of the dress was a little big. I normally wear a 4 or a 6, but I think a 4 would have been too small at the top (which is why I wore a belt to give it a little more shape). Overall, beautiful and comfortable dress... I would rent this again!

Nice holiday dress

The material is nice and it was perfect for a holiday party with it's metallic shine. It runs a little big hence 4 instead of 5 stars. Would have liked it to have a little more shape but my husband really liked it and I received many compliments.

A great dress!!!

Ordered this for a Christmas party my husband and I hosted at our house. The dress arrived on time, and had two sizes -2 and 4. Size 2 fit like a glove. The dress is really beautiful and comfortable. That is RtR, well worth it!!

Not the best for someone with a shorter torso

The dress is definitely cut to have the hips in a certain spot. I have a shorter torso and it didn't hit me in the right spot so the fit was off and I didn't think it looked very flattering

It was a beautiful dress.

This dress was beautiful but even the 0 was too big for me. I am petite (5'1, 105 lbs.) but I can wear most dresses in size 0 but this one was just made for someone taller and a bit larger. I was very sad I did not get to wear this dress because it was perfect for the formal event I was attending.

Festive Dress for an Office Holiday Party!

I rented this dress for an office holiday party. I was looking for something festive with a conservative cut. I also wanted something that was loose around the midsection as the holidays have gotten the best of my fitness routine. Unfortunately, I made it through the night without a single picture in the dress. I ordered the size 4 with a size 2 as a backup. I ended up wearing the 2 which fit, but still had a little bit of room.

Shiny and classy!

Loved this dress! Wore it to my office Holiday party and got so many compliments! More of a sheath style, so it is super comfortable. I am 5'4" and it was just above my knees. It is a high quality, thicker metallic fabric with white embroidery detailing throughout. So beautiful and really worked well for the cocktail affair!

I really felt uncomfortable. It was really tight in my belly and I just felt like a balloon.

Chaperoned prom - love the glitz the dress added to the event. No jewelry necessary!

The dress has no give - the 10 would have fit me except for my chest where it was too tight. Even the 12 was incredibly compressive (the rest of the dress was actually loose) - I am a 36D for reference. Outside of that, it was super pretty! But the sizing meant I had giant arm holes and an awkward fit. Luckily I was *just* a chaperone ;-)

The perfect dress for NYE champagne toasts!

Absolutely beautiful! As many of the other reviews have noted, the dress does run tight around the chest. However, you can't find a more classic yet fun dress. Highly recommend this when you need a little sparkle in your life!

The dress did not lay well on my body and I didn't end up renting it.

It was very awkward looking and the material was not comfortable.

Stylist Review

I love this shift option. It has a fun sparkly element and loose fit, while still making a statement. I love the length as well on my 5'4" frame as well that you can wear a standard bra. I however found the fit slightly unflattering in my normal size as I have large hips. I recommend therefore sizing up for those who our hour glass!

STUNNING!

What a stunning dress! WAY shinier than I expected - in a great way! I wore this for New Years Eve, and it was absolutely perfect. I ordered the 2 and the 4 because I've never worn the designer before, and the 2 fit! There's no stretch in the dress, but the shift silhouette gives you enough breathing room. The dress is a little bit on the shorter side, but with a pair of black tights, it comes off as cute rather than risqué.

Nicer than the pictures show. Cool details!

This was pretty for a winter party. Definitely is shiny and very silvery, but really pretty pattern and detailing on it. I would recommend if you want something a little bit different, but that is still classic and conservative. I wore it to my husband's work holiday party.

I really liked this dress and I received many compliments.

I wore the dress to a first communion and it was perfect. The dress fit to size but was tight in the bust area and I am not a busty person. It smashed my boobs a bit but worked, if I were busty the dress wouldn't have zipped. The only other negative was that the dress didn't photograph well in all of the photos that were taken due to the shine on the dress. In some photos it looked great but in others (depending on lighting) the shine accentuated the wrong parts of my figure. I would rent it again.

College Graduation Outfit, perfect length with heels, photographs well!

I really liked the color when it was photographed, made the silver pop! I liked the length, but WITH HEELS. It was a little long for my liking without heels. If you are going for something sexy & you are in your 20's, I would not choose this dress. I would not recommend for someone who has a large chest either.

Pretty fabric. The neckline was lower than I expected based on the photo. Also a bit narrow around the hip area but otherwise true to size. Cute dress.

Perfect for a holiday party!

I wore this to a holiday symphony concert and semi-formal dinner and loved it! The dress fit beautifully and had just enough sparkle to be festive without being over-the-top. The fabric was stiff enough that the dress held its shape and did not wrinkle even after sitting for an extended period but was comfortable the whole evening. I would happily rent this dress again.

Perfect summer cocktail dress

The dress was a little big (if it came in petite it would have been perfect) but because of the shape of the dress you couldn't tell so it still worked out well for my summer cocktail event.

Ok; did nothing for me.

The print of this dress is great. The length was a little too long (hit at the middle to upper part of my knees) and dress was cut in a way that made it just hang on me.

Christmas party for work!

It seems very short in the photos, but I am 5'2" and in heels it was a nice length for a work party. Easy to move in and comfortable. Matching shoes was the hardest part. I wore brown heels, but think that gold or cream would have been better.

Was just a big snug, but arm holes big, and other dress just fit better.

True to size (I'm a 10 and the 10 fit), but arm holes were large - could see my bra. Coulda gone braless, but always rent 2 dresses so I have options. Lovely for holidays, nice glow to it - not sparkle, but a real warm shine to it with silver, gold and white shimmer. Pretty and not too long or too short.

Less of a shift, more of a straight

This dress was beautiful and the material sparkled in person--great for New Year's Eve. My only issue was the its description as a shift dress, it was more fitted. I have thicker thighs so I had to size up and, as I always find with straight cut dresses for my shape, it was too big up top and barely fit my booty. I still rocked it because it was a fab dress.

The dress was pretty short, but it was very comfortable! Definitely a great dress for an outdoor wedding!
