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.

Classy Dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
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 :)

Perfect holiday party dress!!!

Overall fit: True to Size

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!

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

Size worn: 0

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.

This dress is one in a million.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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!

Overall fit: True to Size

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.

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.

Perfect dress for a black tie Christmas Party

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wanted to order a 4 but it wasn't available. The 6 was fine. A little loose in the waist and hip but snug in the chest and shoulders. I was very comfortable dancing, sitting, eating etc. I think the sequin may have snagged my stockings slightly but not a huge deal.

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.

Great dress

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Rented a 2 and 4- the 2 was the best/most form fitting fit but a little restrictive in the upper back when I tried to move my arms. The 4 was a loser fit in the body but was looser and longer in the arms. Overall didn't end up wearing because it was thicker material than my back up; weather turned out to be mild so didn't want to be too hot. But otherwise totally would have rocked this dress

Beautiful dress; sequins look like water

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
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 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!

Overall fit: True to Size

This dress fits true to size. I wore a 6 - I am 5'3" and 128 lbs...with all the beautiful sequins, I couldn't fully raise my arms when dancing and I think this dress gets rented a lot, as many of the sequins were turned up on the back and the arms. Also, the dress had a strange smell - not sure of it was just a combination of perfumes, foods, etc. All in all, the dress made me feel very sexy and confident. Glad I rented it!

The sequins look like black water. Very well made. Sophisticated sexy.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
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.

Amazing party dress

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Party
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.

Crowd favorite, great for dancing, sequins don't itch!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
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!

The only disappointment with this dress is the sequins were pulled in various directions taking away from the "wet" look of the dress as it's pictured. It still looked great as a sequined dress though! The dress was super comfortable, and kept me warm for a cold winter wedding.

Great dress! A bit snug through the shoulders since there's not much give in the fabric. As a petite size, I have a shorter torso, so this dress wasn't a perfect fit in that area, but it was close enough. The liner tended to want to sneak up a bit, but I think that had to do with my particular build. It didn't reveal anything since the sequin layer had a nice weight to it and always hanged in place correctly. Got many compliments and felt great wearing this dress.

Perfect black dress for a bachelorette party.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Sequins are more obvious in real life compared to how they appear in the pic online. I personally would have preferred them to be a little more discrete / sophisticated. Otherwise the dress was pretty good and did the trick for what I needed. It's a bit risky renting this one in general just because this is the kind of dress that is not as flexible in terms of material, so it's better custom made and fitted rather than just general sizes.
