Runs big
Loved the look of this dress. But, way too big. Get a size smaller or two if possible. Didn't wear because so big. Would rent again in a much smaller size.

Amazing party dress
I ended up wearing the size 6 because my shoulders and arms are rather bold. The 4 fit but I felt I had more mobility in the shoulders in the 6 even though the waist was slightly bigger. I wore this dress out to New Year's Eve and got so many compliments. The sparkles shine but aren't too loud and the sleeves helped with a cold night. One of the best dresses I have EVER worn.

It was perfect for the occasion
I usually wear a 4 but the only size available was a 6. So, the dress was a little big but it still looked great. Very pleased with the rental.

I rented this for a semi-formal Mardi Gras ball. It was cute. A little on the short side. I ended up going with another option.

Sparkly and sexy
Love this dress! Wore it for a bachelorette in Nashville. Went with the 2 so it was more shifty. Super comfortable and perfect for a cool evening. I'm 5'5" and it was a great length, wasn't worried at all. Didn't rub or itch, was very photogenic. Highly suggest!! Love DVF.

This dress had the right amount of sparkle for a night out in LasVegas.
As noted in other reviews, the shoulders and arms are quite narrow. I needed help zipping this dress up since I couldn't raise my arms. Once I got the dress on, it was very comfortable. The length was perfect for me at 5'4''. I can see where it would be quite short on someone with longer legs.

Loved this dress. Would definitely recommend it.
I'm 5'7 so the dress was pretty short. I couldn't lift my arms too high or else it would ride up. Other than that I was pleased with the fit. Snug enough to show your figure but remain comfortable for the night. Wore it to a New Year's Eve wedding and got a lot of compliments.

Perfect party dress
I wore this to my birthday which was at a upscale bar-club. Perfect dress to dance in, not too short. Moved well, felt great on, didn't feel snug or pull. I ordered a 4 and a 6 and went with the 6 for comfort but it didnt look too loose. Received lots of compliments!! Would rent again

Perfect Formal Party Dress
This dress is now tied with another DVF as my all-time favorite rental. Once the sequins are laying flat (this will take you a while but it's *worth it*), it looks unbelievably sleek. I've never gotten so many compliments; some dude told me it was "working," if that does anything for you. I can't lie; it did for me. I'm always a 6 or 8 and could've worn the 4, but it felt tight in my shoulders, the sequins looked shabby (no longer all black due to cleaning), and I wanted it to be a little loose for dancing. The 6 was longer than I'd liked, though. I paired it with the Ettika Onyx Long Drop Earrings and minimal nude heeled sandals. I felt seriously sexy without really trying at all. DVF, how I love you. Perfect winter rental!

Eye catcher of a dress
Was excited to receive and try on this dress! It runs large, and was not fitted on me at all like the model pic shows, however it was still beautiful and I received several compliments from complete strangers while wearing this dress! So all in all it was a hit, but if I ever wore it again I would order down a size.

I was ready to dance the night away in this dress!
I love this dress!! It's perfect for an occasion or just a fun night out with the girls! It runs a little large, so it was slouchy on me, but I loved the way it fit and would wear it this way next time.

I am pretty petite so I was left scrambling when the dress was too big! The picture makes it appear to be more of a fitted dress.

Big sparkle!! Great dress for my bachelorette party!
I am small.... 5/'1 and size 0. I was worried it would be too short, but the length was perfect, The sleeves were a little long, but i just cuffed them and you couldn't tell. Also, (from what I remember, ha!), I got really hot later in the night as I was dancing the night away with my girlfriends. But overall, its a great dress and a show stopper.

Very nice dress if it fits you well
pros : good quality (nice materials and sewing). Warm, so good in the winter. cons : strange fit (at least for me) with saggy upper back, roomy waist and tight chest. Zipper line is not smooth. I highly recommend to spend some time (maybe 1-2 hours) to make all the sequins to face one direction. This will make the dress look ten times better.

Beautiful dress; sequins look like water
I was worried that this shift cut would make my hourglass shape look bulky (thanks, boobs), but wearing a size down made it close-fitting enough that it was flattering. The sequins on this dress have to be "petted" the right way, but once they are in place they are gorgeous, like wearing liquid. Sizing is pretty flexible because the fabric is somewhat stretchy, but runs large. I probably could have worn anything from a 0 to 4, so depending on how tight or slouchy a silhouette you're going for, anywhere from 2 sizes down to your regular size. The dress is pretty short on anyone average height or above, but to me this was a plus, since with the sleeves and conservative neckline, a little leg looked sexy while still classy IMO.

This was not my favorite rental..The photo of the model wearing this dress is pretty misleading.
This dress was obviously well-made and the sequins were lovely...but the fit was not what i expected. It was quite baggy, actually...and i wore a zero! The dress fit loosely, like a t-shirt, and did virtually nothing for my figure.I also thought it was a little long, for a minidress. I found myself posing for photos while sort of pinching the side of the dress to make it look more fitted!

The sequins look like black water. Very well made. Sophisticated sexy.
I loved this dress. I could have worn my normal 8 for a looser look but I wanted a fitted sexy look so I went with the 6. Some of the other renters said it wasn't figure flattering but because I've got curves, it fit exactly the way I was hoping it would fit. Some of the sequins are turned up from wear but that was no big deal. It was very comfortable, stretchy and the interior lining was soft. I'm short and it hit me mid thigh so it could be a little short for some girls. I loved this rental.

Crowd favorite, great for dancing, sequins don't itch!
I wasn't particularly fond of this dress at first, being large chested with a small waist anything that drapes (rather than cinched at the waist) makes me feel like i'm wearing a tent already, but i did love the sequins and the people i went out with were going nuts over it - the birthday girl even wanted to trade dresses with me. I got several more compliments in this than with any other dress I've worn. I even had multiple strangers stop me and ask me where i got it. It photographs really well because of it's sequins, and i have to say i felt pretty awesome in it. Dress definitely ran a size large - i have never been a size 4 in my life, but the night i wore this dress i was! One size down from my usual fit well, but was pretty snug in the shoulders, I wasn't able to raise my arms all the way up. Overall though, great dress, and the sequins don't even itch!

Classy Dress!
Got lots of compliments on this dress I wore to a holiday fashion show. Although there were lots of "black sequined" dresses, I felt that this one stood out because of the high neck and long sleeves. It was pretty short on me (and I'm only 5'4), but since the rest of the dress was conservative, it was fine. Found it difficult to move my arms too much as the sleeves were constricting, so probably wouldn't be a good dancing dress. But if you're going to an event where you are mostly standing around - it looks great :)

Not what I expected.
This dress looks awesome on the model, but doesn't have a very defined waist in reality. It bagged where it should've clung and clung where there should have been space.

GREAT IF YOU DON'T HAVE CURVES!!!
The dress is beautiful! If you are tall and thin, it will look great. If you are curvy, order up or choose something different. The quality of the dress was beautiful and the arrival was perfect. The dress is just very narrow cut. The dress also is very short so if you aren't really comfortable with your knees or upper thigh area, beware. I am not tall and the dress was very short on me. There is nothing wrong with the dress if you have the body type. I think a tall slender girl would be a knock out! :)

Loved the dress. It was a hit, but the top felt snug.
I'm a size C/D. I rented a size two. I'm an hourglass figure and found the top tighter and bottom looser.

Sent as a replacement
Not for hourglass girls!! Shift style dress with a high neckline, this dress was too big through the middle and tight around the thighs. I know this cut doesn't look good on me but the dress was sent without me ordering it when the dress I wanted was not available last minute. Best for apple shape women and is not very easily dressed down with the sequins so keep that in mind.

The arms were tight but I was able to get into the dress. I usually wear a 0 but did not wear this in the end. I wore a back-up. My husband did like this dress on me. The 2 was not available.

Fab for cheap.
The dress doesn't leave anything to the imagination. While it's kind of boxy in some areas, it's skin-tight in others. It didn't compliment my body very well so I chose not to wear it.

I was originally intimidated by the sequins on this dress, but it was a great choice for my girls night out! It is definitely short (mid thigh on me), but super flattering! It is fitted through the arms, so I recommend sizing up for backup!

Perfect holiday party dress!!!
This was my favorite RTR dress so far! I normally wear a 4 but rented the size 4 and 2 based on the feedback that it runs a little large. I could have worn the 2 however it was really short and form fitting. The 4 was a little roomy but definitely not too big and I think went with the understated sexy styling of the dress. I received a lot of compliments and was happy that while some other girls had similar dresses, none were of the quality or look of this DVF one. I would highly recommend this for any holiday event!

:( Didn't fit right at all.. sleeves too tight
I rented this for my Birthday , and it was gorgeous when i pulled it out of the packaging, but i tried it on, and the sleeves were way too tight.. it was very weird. I ordered the 2 and 4, expecting to wear the 2.. and the 2 fit great everywhere else.. except the sleeves were literally so tight that i couldn't pull them all the way up! I am an athletic girl, but it was even tight on my wrists! So i made my friend try it on.. and she is TINY.. and the sleeves were tight on her too, but the dress was big!.. it was almost like the sleeves had ripped before, and they had to re-seam the sleeves in order to fix it, and they made them too small. I tried the 4.. and the dress was too big, but the sleeves were also too tight.. and there is NO stretch in the material, so i was unable to wear either one :( Major bummer, I usually love everything I order from RTR, be cautious when ordering this.. if ..you..have.. normal.. sized wrists?? lol

This dress is gorgeous. It is not as shiny as it appears in the picture so you can dress it up or down depending on the event. On a 5' 3 frame, hits about mid-thigh. The fit is beautiful and would definitely rent it again!

I rented this dress for a New Year's Eve party and boy was I glad I did. I felt and looked amazing. If your looking for a dress that will sparkle and don't mind black I would give this dress a try. I kept getting compliments all night and most importantly my husband couldn't take his eyes off me!!

This dress is one in a million.
I am 5'11" and normally an 8. I spent every night between ordering and receiving this dress praying to whoever would listen that the (highest size available) size 6 fit. Nature's cruel joke was that the dress zipped up and was long enough in the sleeves, but showed entirely too much leg without charging admission. I couldn't sit down in it. The only way it would have been remotely acceptable is if the theme of the party was Basic Instinct. As long as you are not a giant among women like me, you should rent this dress and enjoy. It is unique, classy, sexy, and has WOW factor. Plus the construction is so solid, it seems impossible for it to wear over multiple renters. Rent this one and enjoy your new found hotness!

First Rental! super sexy! super short! super Fun! super flirty! LOVE
My first rental! This was a fantastic dress! slightly miniature in length but very sexy, i definitely could've worn the 6 ad it would have looked just at good. but i liked the tightness of the 4. i am athletic and the arms were super tight on my back and arms (i didn't wear any bra with this dress either) but it still was movable in. I was so happy with the way this dress looked i might rent it again! i know weird, but its fabulous! Im obsessed with RTR now.
