Super comfortable but runs a little small.

I tried this on in the store and ordered as a backup bc I knew if my first choice didn't work, I could get away with wearing it to my work holiday party. I really liked it -- the lining is really soft and comfortable but the fit was not as forgiving (I probably could have gone a size up) as my other option. The sleeves didn't seem tight or scratchy to me.

Fit like a glove!

I was nervous about the fit in the arms-there was no need to worry. It is a little bit on the shorter side, but with tights there was no problems. The lining inside was real soft. The material can get snagged easily and pull. It was beautiful for a winter wedding in the city-received many compliments.

My husband couldn't get over how beautiful the dress was

Beautiful! I went size larger so it wouldn't be too short. I still felt it was a little short. It was nice and warm for a chilly evening. My husband thought it was the best dress I have rented.

Didn't wear this one.

This dress was very tight and too short for the event I was attending so I wore a different dress. Beautiful dress, runs a little small so maybe a size up.

Elegant and modern dress!

This is a very fitted dress, with a smooth clean silhouette. The gold lace overlay is just beautiful, very high quality. I felt amazing in this dress. It's short, good for petite girls. Looks just as great with black hosiery/tights as with bare legs if it's warm enough. Definitely a winter/holiday dress, I couldn't really see wearing this in spring or summer.

GREAT dress! Runs a bit tight around mid-section.

Pros: Great length for super short people. Fabric is a bit stretchy. Able to wear proper undergarments. Cons: Snug around waist so self-conscious people beware!

Short and sexy

If you're wondering if this dress is too short for your occasion, the answer is probably yes. BUT it is gorgeous and sexy and can be worn with confidence as long as you have tights for underneath. Lots of compliments on the dress, but even in New Jersey, I was shocked that conservative me had the shortest dress of them all. It might not be right for a wedding. The dress itself runs a little small, but is comfortable and forgiving. Loved it and hope to find the occasion to rent it again!

Such a quick delivery and even the packaging the dress comes in makes you feel like a queen.

Gorgeous dress. I did not wear it because it lacked in length but if it was a little longer I would of thought about purchasing one for my own.

Gorgeous dress but just too short.

I wish I would have listened to the other reviewers about this dress. It's gorgeous but it was just too short and tight for the wedding I was attending.

Beautiful dress, such detail!

I ended up not wearing this dress - fit true to size except in the bust. Looked great on, beautiful details, loved the sleeves - comfortable not itchy whatsoever. I'm 5'1, 32DD... Not meant for the ladies who carry more up top.

Beautiful dress!

I ended up not wearing this dress because it was entirely too short. I read the reviews and even went a couple sizes up to make sure it would fit, but it didn't. It was even a little snug, too. I might have been able to wear it with tights, but I'm not quite confident enough for a dress this short. I'd pass on this dress if you're over about 5'3". Just not made for us tall girls!

Beautiful dress but runs small!

This dress is gorgeous and classy. Highly recommend. However- definitely size up! I am typically a 6, maybe an 8 in some designers. I could have used the 10.

Short. Wow!

This is a beautiful dress but I would not recommend it because the lace does not dry clean well. It looked really worn and had a tear in the sleeve so thankfully RTR was able to overnight me a different dress. If you do decide to go with this dress size up at least one size. Super short!

Way too short!

I didn't end up wearing this dress because it was wayyyyyy too short. I wear a 6 normally so I rented a 6 and an 8 and both were skin tight (in a good way) but extremely short. Even the 10 wouldn't have worked :( rent the runway is awesome though... Great customer service, they overnighted me a new dress in time for the occasion.

Extremely comfortable and flattering

I wore it to a ballet production. It was extremely comfortable, and surprisingly the sleeves weren't itchy or tight. And it fit perfectly! Only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because it was a bit shorter than I expected...and I'm 5'4.

Wore this for a "touch of gold" themed sorority date party and it was perfect. Looked great on.

Hugs in all the right places which is unique for a tight dress. Like other reviewers said it is quite short, even for a short girl. I don't usually wear tight dresses, but this one opened my eyes to them.

Fabulous Dress, Felt Beautiful!!!

This dress was very flattering, my only complaints are that the lace was staticky and would bunch up often-revealing the black slip underneath right above my knees so I was constantly pulling the lace down. While the 6 fit it was too short on me, so I'm glad I sized up for the backup. The size 8 fit perfectly, at 5'4 with 34Ds and a short torso the length was manageable.

Gorgeous, but too tight/short. I normally wear 4/6 and got the 6... Should have gotten 8 (or even 10!) Ended up wearing something else

Fun dress!

This dress was beautiful. I was initially slightly panicked when I tried on and saw how short it is, but it ended up working out. The gold lace over the black was so pretty, received many compliments and in the end the length didn't bother me. Would definitely rent again!

Comfy all night long

The 2 fit me perfectly and the 4 fit my boyfriend's sister perfectly. So we jokingly wore the same dress to the same Christmas party. We both received tons of complements, some didn't even realize we had on the same dress. I highly recommend this one. #whoworeitbest

Getting 2 dresses allowed me to glam up for a girls' night out a couple of days before too!

Rented this one in the 2 and 4 and the DVF Fruitful 2. The 2 Fruitful fit; in this gold the 4 was much better. I got a bunch of compliments...it was a lot of fun to use RTR! Will do so again!

I just loved how different and classy this dress is

This dress is on the short side so keep that in mind when you select it. I wore this for a February wedding and I think it was perfect for a winter event. I usually wear a 6 but went with this 8 in this dress. I got loads of compliments on this dress and would definitely wear it again!

Gorgeous Dress.. Perfect for the holidays

I'll admit I was skeptical when I first put on this dress. It seemed really short and I'm only 4'11. By the end of the night I was in love! It's a gorgeous dress and it fits like a glove. I would recommend going one size up for your backup. I paired it with black booties and spanks.

Skin tight!

Was expecting a sheath style dress, but this was stretchy and skin tight! Still wore it and received lots of compliments, however i did feel a little self conscious all night. A little sexier than i would usually want for a company Christmas party!

Way to short!

Although this dress is beautiful it is so short! I was constantly pulling it down and sitting was risky! Also, I was afraid the zipper at the bottom would come up and expose me even more! I'm only 5'2 and wore a 4. Can't imagine someone tall wearing this, it's look like a shirt!

Fit like a glove, a little short

Fit was perfect; I am typically a 4, and I wore the 4. Not too tight, and not too loose. Fabric did not "give" a lot, so the fabric simply laid on me. Received many compliments! Only con; it is a BIT short. I am 5'2, and was taking extra precautions when sitting. Beautiful!

Went with one size up as the smaller size was too tight on my midsection (no stretch). Loved the detail and especially the hem.

This dress is beautiful, but it definitely runs small and is on the shorter side. I ordered a 0 (my regular size) and a 2. I had to go with the 2.
