This dress is simply stunning! The photo cannot do justice to the quality of the fabric/sequins and the fit. The sequins are quite small and lay very flat, offering a beautiful glimmering effect. The leopard look was not as pronounced in reality, which I felt was a good thing. I am a size 4-6 and the small was perfect and very classy for a Gala, and it would have been perfect for any evening affair.

I definitely felt confident wearing this - Everyone went crazy for this dress! Many guests were stopping me to tell me how much they loved it!

I wore this dress to a party with a "Rock & Roll Black Tie" dress code. This was the perfect option! This dress runs ever so slightly large in that it has a little more give and stretch than you'd imagine. I felt it could be tighter around my hips, but it fit perfectly through the top (and I have no bust!). When the dress arrived I was actually disappointed at first, since it looks more purple than blue and because of all the iridescent sequins, it's hard to see the leopard pattern. I decided to wear it since I had no other options, and once I put it on with my shoes & accessories, makeup and hair, it looked great! It photographed beautifully and you could indeed see the leopard print.

This dress is hot!!! Very short, detailing is beautiful and it was perfect for a Vegas night out. I suggest sizing up for fuller bust but overall a complete knock out dress!

This dress fit pretty well. My only issue was that the slip underneath was hanging a little in the back of the dress. Perfect after a quick adjustment, and I got compliments all night!

I rented this awesome dress for a weekend in Vegas...it's definitely an eyecatcher! I ordered both the 6 and the 8 and could have worn either one, the fit was great on both, just felt more comfortable in the 8. I wore it with thigh-high black boots and the compliments were rolling in!

Fun dress!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
It wasn't the most comfortable dress to wear. It was definitely itchy under the arm and sometimes the sleeved portion caught on the dress. It's also kinda short when you sit...but none of the above really bothered me. I still felt amazing in it. Curvy girls: the rouching on the dress is poofier than pictured, so be aware of that if you don't want to accentuate your bottom half... but I say..the more hips and butt you have, the better!!! Also, this review system is the best ever!! It really helps when picking out a dress to read others comments, keep it up, girls!!

The service and the beautiful dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I received lots of compliments on this dress. I thought I would be a little nervous about wearing it because when I first put it on I thought it might be too short for my comfort level. There also seemed to be a little bit of sheerness to it in the lighting at my house that a short half slip would've prevented but I didn't have one (the dress is lined though so it really wasn't an issue in the dimly lit party atmosphere). I received the dress on time and it was in great shape. I usually wear between a 4 and a 6----the 4 fit perfect. Loved this first experience with renttherunway.com and I will definitely be using it in the future!!

Fits like a glove!

Overall fit: True to Size

This isn't a style I usually wear, but I'm really glad I rented this dress. It fit like a glove and I got so many compliments all night! I felt glamorous and sexy and elegant. Maybe it itches a little under the sleeveless arm, but after a couple of glasses of wine I didn't notice it any more. Really not that big of an issue for me at all. I wore this to a fundraiser gala, but also wore it in my family's annual Christmas card photo.

Glamalicious Dress

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a New Year's party and in a room full of sequined dresses, it stood out!! I am short, so the length worked for me and I wore black stockings and shoes to elongate the look. The fabric did catch from time to time, so that was a bit of a worry, but not enough to dim the joy of wearing this glam dress. I rented a 2 & 4, the 2 fit perfectly! The only disappointment was that in a dim party atmosphere, the cool purple/leopard coloring was not very distinguishable. Al in all a mega hit!!

Pretty but not for me

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wasn't able to wear the dress not because I didn't like it but it didn't fit me right it wasn't form fitting as I would hope and was loose in the areas I would have wanted it to accentuate. It was pretty but the fit was just not there. I was unable to wear this or the other dress I recieved in my order because of fit. I am a typical 6-8 but I got them both in 8. Unfortunately, neither worked out. This one was a little too loose and the other was too tight :(

I wore this for New Years and it was super comfortable and fun to wear. I received a lot of compliments because of the pattern and the full length sleeve. I did not experience any digging or itching from the beading on the side where it is off shoulder, this was a major plus! Length wise this was the perfect length. I am 5 foot even and the length was perfect, not too short and not too long. Great dress!

I got so many compliments wearing this dress! The fit was great, although I wish it was just an inch shorter. I love that the cheetah print was muted, so it wasn't so overwhelming! It photographs really pretty in the right lighting. I had a fabulous night wearing this dress! It was perfect!

Fun Flirty & Still Appropriate

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This was my birthday dress. The fabric is nice and stretchy. Very comfortable. The sequins was not placed where it would be irritating. I enjoyed the billowing sleeve to the cuff because I do not like attention to my upper arms. I was originally afraid my arms would"t fit. However, that was a silly girl's 'fat day' thoughts. The dress has an amazing print. I believe it was jaguar-ish. I don't know my animal prints. I am not an animal print wearing person, or even buying person. I mention the print because it was this subtle differences in the sequins that helped draw your eye correctly in seeing that it gave you a great silhouette and hid any mental bad body issues. No one at my party realized it was an animal print, except when we stopped to specifically talk about the dress. The dress hit well on the leg and was not a mini. I do not like my knees and this dress distracted that I forgot about them. Very beautiful and a total eye-catcher.

This dress was so pretty and elegant, not too tight and not too short. It was a little big on me, but I just think that's because the size was too big. It was a beautiful dress and definitely worth it!

I wore this dress to homecoming and it recieved a thousand compliments! I felt sexy and amazing in this dress all night. The sequins never itched either. If you want the dress to really hug you though, I suggest sizing down. It seems to run a little small. The leopard print is REALLY subtle too. The color is also more indigo than the purple in the picture. A couple of the sequins fell off as well. Overall this was the perfect dress and it stood out amoungst all the sequins there.

TOTAL HIT!

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size

I usually wear a 12 but I got a 14 as a backup and ended up wearing it. It allowed for a little more breathing room but it was something I could feel. There wasn't a difference between how the 12 looked vs the 14. The neckline is FABULOUS and the gathering on the side did a great job of masking my stomach.

The perfect amount of glam for New Year's Eve!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for New Year's and I loved it! The sequins were just the spakle I was looking for and the ruching on the side is very figure flattering. I probably should have gone down a size because it was baggy throughout the waist and hips but I wanted to make sure it would fit the top half which is usually an issue. The sequins did itch under the armpit but that's to be expected with sequins. Great dress!

I was kind of nervous when I took it out of the box (it looked small), but it fit perfectly. It's definitely a litle on the short side, but it worked out fine. The sequins gets a little itchy under your arm, but it wasn't a huge bother. The style is very flattering! Definitely recommend this dress to others.

Perfect dress for my NYE festivities!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I received so many compliments about this dress. It was absolutely perfect to ring in 2013. I have gained 15 pounds in the past year (new job=no time to work out), so I was determined to find a dress that would hide the weight and flatter my figure. I was nervous about how fitted it looked on the model in the picture, but the slight ruching across the front camouflaged my middle section beautifully. Depending on the lighting, the print is relatively subtle. The sleeve did catch on the sequins a few times, but that was easy to fix. It was also a bit itchy under the left arm, but it didn't bother me. To balance out the sleeve, I found some super cute bangles and earrings at jcpenney (the picture does not do them justice). Since it was cold and snowy, I wore tights with black closed-toed pumps. I highly recommend this dress, no matter what your body type is! It is so fun and perfect for a variety of occasions!

Not much difference between sizes 2 & 4. The sequins were a little uncomfortable under the arm pit, it makes you look heavier in the pics. Ok, but not my favorite dress

I rented this dress last minute for New Years Eve. I had my heart set on a sparkly dress for the night and this was one of the only ones RTR had left the day before NYE The dress was fine but wasn't a knock out, especially compared to all the other RTR dresses I've rented. I didn't like how the sleeve was so flowy and the sequins were itchy. I put a bracelet over it to try to cinch the wrist. Overall, the dress was very forgiving and fit great. However, I think RTR has much better dresses to offer.

I wore this dress to my holiday party, it was perfect! Form-fitting without being tight, true to size and the pattern was subtle. My body type is in between athletic and hourglass. I have hips and a booty, this dress has just enough give to make it flattering.
