Sparkly and elegant!
I rented this as my backup dress for a gala; I didn't end up wearing it, but I can't wait to rent it again for a future event. The purple ombre sequins are beautiful, and the dress is classy, elegant, and eye-catching. You can definitely wear a regular bra with this dress, and the v-neck is flattering but not too low; I'm sure it would work on a variety of chest sizes. Length note: I'm 5'2" and the dress was almost knee-length on me. Overall, I loved this dress!

Unfortunately, this dress had a strange fit (does not work if you're not flat chested).
I did not wear this at all, had to wear something I owned to the event..

I did not wear the dress
The dress didn't fit well so I did not wear it. The sequin part did not cover the bottom and the slip part for the dress was showing.

Dress was gorgeous!
This was my first RTR experience. I felt incredibly lucky to have received the dress I chose and find out that neither had been worn before. Tags still on them as if they were purchased right from the store. (Not sure if that's typical or not). In any event - I put on the dress and just felt like it was "too much" for the occasion. Made the executive call to wear something else I already owned ... which turned out to be the right choice =) Will definitely use the RTR service again. Loved the convenience of the whole experience!

I felt like a movie star
Loved this dress, though you may want to eat light when you wear it. With the downward view, (me looking down) i thought, no way, muffin top. but from looking in a mirror, or someone else looking at it, they were like "you look so tiny!" i think it was the ombre effect of the colors that left you looking slim...just make sure to watch out for the sequins, they can rub your arms the wrong way if you're not careful. sized up to a 12 for backup since its tight, but really, it was just more roomy in the bust and looked weird on me, so wore the 10 and had a great night in it!

Very fun dress for NYE! Loads of compliments !
I wore the 6 for comfort-,but the 4 fit. Very comfortable and stretchy. Sequins under the arms kind of painful by the end of the night- otherwise a great dress.

A sparkly New Year's Eve stunner
This dress was very form-fitting and flashy--perfect for NYE! However, there was a bit of extra room in the chest of the dress--I had to wear the most padded bra I own and pull down the front of the dress just a little bit to avoid the extra fabric up top drooping. Like another RTR user, I also noticed that the black slip under the dress kept peeking out of the bottom (it did this on both the size 8 and size 10 dress), but I wore it on NYE so it was dark enough that no one could really tell anyway! Overall, the dress worked pretty well for what I rented it for.

Goregous and perfectly flattering!!
I ordered this dress last minute as my intended dress did not work out. I placed the order at 1 PM and recieved it in the mail before 24 hours had even passed. Very convenient! I absolutely loved this dress! It was perfect for New Years Eve. It really flatters your body well. I received compliments left and right. If I could afford to, I would buy this dress and wear it again and again! I WILL order from RTR again! Such a great service :-)

Perfect Dress for a NYE Wedding!
I love love loved this dress! It was so pretty and sparkly, perfect for the NYE Wedding I went to. I'm in between an 8 and 10 and can usually fit comfortably in a size 8, but the 10 fit like a glove. I loved the rouching on the stomach, it helped to hide my tummy flub. I would definitely rent this dress again if ever the opportunity arose. So pretty and glamorous, I felt gorgeous and sexy all night.

Great New Year's Eve dress!
This was a fun dress, sexy but not too sexy. I wore it to a New Year's Eve party and got tons of compliments. I usually wear a size 6 and wore the same here. Fit me very well - can handle a large chest and good for women on the shorter side.

Great dress for NYE
This was a really fun dress to wear for NYE. It had the perfect amount of sparkle. It fit nicely, and I received lots of compliments. It was a little itchy in the underarm area, but it was nothing a couple of margaritas couldn't fix! I'm smaller on top, so it was a little loose, but otherwise it was great!

Great color but size UP for curves, esp hips.
My mistake was betting on the wearers who said this ran large. If you have an athletic figure or otherwise can't fill out a low V neck, it may seem large in the bust, but it is NOT large throughout. I wear a 12 at Ann Taylor, a 14 most other places, but a 16 in many designers. Because of the many comments that this ran large, I chose size 12/14. The neckline was fine, but the shell didn't stretch although the mesh sequined overlay did; that meant the sequined mesh rode up but the shell did not, and inches of the shell were visible at the hem below the sequins. The sequined mesh also puckered in the back at the shoulders. Also, the mesh that is the basis for the sequins is very fragile, and was not holding up well after previous wears. Some of the mesh had broken and the loose threads needed to be tied off. I wore it because I was traveling for NYE and had a too-casual back up outfit. The color and ombre was beautiful, and I got compliments from people who saw me sitting or didn't look down at the hem; but I was lamenting that I didn't just go for the 16. Also, the sequins run high under the arms and after the NYE champagne wore off, I realized the skin there was raw/red, as other commenters have noted

Beautiful, fun dress -- Perfect for a NYE wedding!
Loved this dress for a NYE wedding in Arizona! Super comfortable. Form fitting but not tight. My only complaint was the sequins rubber under my arms getting a little uncomfortable by the end of the night!

Unique and stunning! Perfect for a party!
I wore this dress for a night out in Las Vegas and it was perfect! I loved the gradient violet that sparkled - truly a unique choice over the basic black dress! Fit wise, I tend to wear anything from XS to M based on how it fits across the back (I'm built like a swimmer with a broad back and shoulders) and I was not able to zip up the size 2, while the size 4 fit well across the back and still fit nicely in the waist and hips. I loved that it had a sexy cut, but I could still wear it wear a normal bra. As with all sequin dresses, I had expected and endured abrasiveness on the inside of my arms while dancing, but we tend to dance with our arms up in the air anyway, right? Highly recommended dress. I also loved the Badgley Mischka Necklace I wore with it, but would recommend a piece in a darker shade to better compliment this dress. Also, one of my pictures shows my girlfriend wearing a Herve Leger dress (Lady Moscow), which was stunning and I have reserved to wear for another occasion in a size small.

Great color
This dress was really nice in person and the top color was lavender but borderline pink. The sequins were so pretty but the dress was a bit snug- especially in the hips (at least for me!). It's a great style and I really liked that it could be worn with a regular bra but since I only had one size I ended up not wearing this dress at all. I recommend sizing up for backup. It definitely is a great party dress!

Everyone commented on this dress!
The fade from purple to black is very flattering. I liked that I could wear this dress with a regular bra. I didn't wear Spanx, but did have control top pantyhose on. It was very comfortable and after a drink I forgot about the sequins rubbing under my upper arms. :-)

Beautiful, but didn't fit
The fit notes and other renters mentioned the dress is narrow through the hips and unfortunately for me they weren't lying. I ended up wearing a different dress and sending this back for a credit. Beautiful dress and fit well on top, but definitely size up for larger hips.

The dress fits true to size. The sequins will bother your arms for the first few mins but nothing that would make me not rent it again. Comfortable to dance the night away!

Great party dress!
I rented this dress for my 24th birthday in Atlantic City. I usually wear either an 8 or a 10 so I ordered both (highly recommend doing this) and the 10 fit perfectly. The only downside was the black slip underneath kept popping out. Otherwise it is a great party dress!

Sexy, but a little scratchy ;)
I really liked this dress, and the fit was fantastic. That said, over the course of the evening, the sequins began to get really scratchy along the underside of my arms. Fun dress, overall.

Great dress for a formal, fun occasion!
The fit seemed pretty true to size to me, maybe slightly on the bigger side as it isn't meant to hug the body too much. I loved the color and sequins were a lot of fun with the sparkle. The only issue for me was that the sequins rubbed when I had my arms to my sides so that was a tad annoying but not enough to make it not worth the dress. The ombre coloring is pretty awesome. I would recommend it!

So sparkly and fun for a bachelorette party in AC
I wore the 6, and it was snug, but hugged the places with the sparkles camouflaged all the areas I'm most self conscious about (belly!) The liner at the bottom kept coming out as the other reviews mentioned, but other than that, it was great. Loved it!

I felt like the life of the party in sequins! This dress is SHORT but HOT.
The lining stuck out below the dress but because the bottom is black, you'd never realize unless you were super up close.

This dress was amazing! Exactly what I wanted for my big Vegas Bachelorette party!
I wore this dress for night two of my joint bachelor/bachelorette party in Vegas and it was perfect! It was super comfortable to wear, I went for the bigger size only because the size 10 hips seemed small because the dress kept bunching in the mid section. But, the bigger size also fit just fine. It wasn't too short so I didn't expose myself getting in and out of the limo and I was able to dance until 5AM in it with no problems. The next morning I had some scratches under my underarm where the sequins rubbed but nothing too painful. All my girls wore their best LBD and I stood out like the Rock Star I was in this dress! I highly recommend it for any big party!

My husband thought I looked hot and I felt very confident!
I am usually either a size 6 or 8 depending on designer and cut. I probably could have done a 6 but they only had 8 in the store. I really liked the length. Not too short but short enough to be hot! I also don't usually go for purple but the ombre effect was really pretty. The sequins just felt a little scratchy and the dress seemed like it was nearing the end of it's life.

This dress was PERFECT
I rented the dress for my bachelorette party, and it was just amazing. It fit perfectly, and highlighted my best features. I'm 5'6" but wore 5-6 inch heels. My only complaint about the dress is that the sequins rubbed my armpits. But it was so worth it. The dress breathed well, stretched, and was so comfortable. I wish I could have afforded to actually just BUY the dress but hhey. Whatever. Awesome dress, seriously.

I wore this in Vegas for a bachelorette party. I loved it! It was perfect for the occasion. I am usually a 6 or an 8. The 8 was definitely a little big - the 6 fit perfectly.

Unforgiving in the hips.
I didn't end up wearing this because the other girls at the bachelorette party were wearing dresses that were less formal. It would've been ok for a night, but I wasn't upset I didn't end up having to wear it. I have hips for sure but I never have trouble buying pants or anything; this dress was super tight in the hips and actually hiked up the sequin overlay so you could see the lining underneath. Plus, as with all sequined dresses, it was a killer on the arms...and that was just walking around my apartment. The other dress I wanted wasn't available so I picked this one just to have something to wear. Didn't love, but it's my own fault because sequins are annoying.

This dress is a head turner!
Runs true to size. Very comfortable for dancing the night away! Sequins around the arm holes were a tiny but itchy but not too terrible! Gives a good hourglass shape but fabric is forgiving in the middle, so have that extra slice of cake! ;-). Absolutely loved this dress!

perfect for a VIP event, sexy yet classy.. felt like a star!
I loved the shape and the fit, the purple color was unique and fun it's the perfect length for a shorter girl it might be too short on a taller girl though, it does show off your bust nicely if you have a bigger bust, I could even wear my regular bra with it! I fit a size 10 but wore the size 12 because it was tight in the hip area...it does ride up and the black slip shows a little but it really isn't too noticeable, I thought it would scratch my underarms more but it was really just a minor issue

PERFECT!
The dress fits snug but true to size, absolutely gorgeous! I can't believe I was so negligent to not take a picture! I wore this in Vegas and received NUMEROUS COMPLIMENTS from strangers. It made me feel like a total princess :) It is completely worth the tiny bit of chaffage on my arm from the sequins. Seriously, you wont regret renting this dress!!!!

NA
The dress for great and was sparkly and eye catching. My issue was the lining hanging out from under the dress. Other reviews had stated this same problem but I had hoped it would be ok. I called when it arrived to tell then this issue did exist and was told a new dress was being sent. It never came and I ended up wearing this one anyhow. Rent the runway has great customer service and I will use them again but beware of this issue. I tried both dresses that had been sent to me and they both did that.

Rented for a night out at Light in Vegas.
I rented this dress for a night out in Vegas and it was perfect! I don't usually go for purple, but the ombre was beautiful. I got a ton of compliments on this dress. It runs pretty true to size, but was a little tight at the bottom so that the slip part kept peeking out. There isn't really any stretch to this dress so go with your street size and a size up for the backup. The underarm part can get a little itchy, but overall it wasn't that irritating. Perfect for dancing the night away!
