Stylist Notes

The ultimate birthday girl dress! Rent this sequin sensation by Diane von Furstenberg for your big celebration.

Size & Fit

This dress runs slightly small. We recommend going one size up for back-up size (see following fit notes for exceptions).

BUST: Great for any cup size - if sizing up due to narrow skirt, use fashion tape to secure bust
WAIST: Fitted - fitted at natural waist - dress runs slightly small at waist so size up in back-up size; waist band and pleated bodice are flattering on midsection
HIPS: Very fitted - narrow skirt so curvy women should size up
LENGTH: Mini - (on a 5'5" model) - may be worn with dark hosiery for a more conservative look

UNDERGARMENTS: Should be worn with a strapless bra
FABRIC: Fabric has no stretch
GREAT FOR: Full Bust, Hourglass, Petite, Straight & Narrow body types
(Model's height is 5'9')

For me it was a little snug in the hips so I wore the larger of the two sizes I ordered even though the top was a little loose. I think the fabric with the sequins is alot more flowy and loose than what it looks like in the picture. I expected it to be more form fitting but still it was a nice dress.

I loved the dress, fit was snug in lower half compared to chest but it worked fine. I normally wear size 4 dress and that is what I wore in this dress. Beautiful, fun party dress!

This dress is stunning! I wore it to (a big) dinner and then dancing until after 5am and had no concerns about moving and shaking. The draping made me a bit nervous at first, esp the horizontal draping around the hips, but was incredibly flattering and extremely sexy. The length was great, it hit my legs at just the right spot. This dress is the perfect combination of sexy, sophisticated, and glamorous without being fussy or constricted.

Really pretty and flattering! I am 5'5", 120 lbs, 34B. The size 4 was a little too loose in the bust so I wore the size 2, but it kept riding up all night because it was tight over the hips. Was kind of uncomfortable b/c of that but it prob would have been better if I had worn the 4.

I wore this dress to my prom. I wanted something cute but not to over the top. This dress was perfect but, the zipper poped mid-night! It wasnt too tight, I dont know how it happend! But overall this was a great dress! It came above my knee (just like the models) and made my small bust look really good!

I wore this dress to a wedding and received many compliments. It's a great dress! I normally wear between size 8 and 10 and the 10 was a little snug, but still looks great. The draping hides your 'flaws' if you're an apple shape like me.

LOVED THIS DRESS!!! I rented it for the Horrible Bosses movie premier and it fit like a glove. I rented the 2 and the 4 and ended up wearing the 2. I received so many compliments on the dress. It is the prefect LBD. I will be renting this dress again.

The dress is really cute, but unfortunately did not work for my pear shape. The top fit great, but the bottom was too small. I had to send it back and wear an old stand-by to my event. It really is elegant for a cocktail dress and I recommend it for those of you non-pear shapes!

Loved dancing in this dress! DvF makes amazing clothes.
I loved this dress. I rented it for my birthday and wore it with a tiara and it was just perfect. I was originally looking for a colorful dress, but the sequins were festive enough that I didn't mind the black at all. I felt sophisticated and pretty and had a great time.

Very cute dress... runs true to size. The 4 fit perfectly and the length was above the knee. Very forgiving if you have some belly to cover up.

Order a size up if curvy in hips. I am usually a 6 or 8 and ended up wearing the 8 as the 6 was way too narrow in the hips. Dress was very pretty and comfy and on the shorter side. I felt confident and loved it!

Being able to meet my best friend in the whole world's wardrobe requirements for her wedding.
The dress was really pretty and I'm sure for more slender girls would work great. It looked fine on me, but was incredibly tight on my lower half (which to be honest, is my larger half) - I think the word I would use to describe it would be "bootylicious". But, all in all it is a beautiful dress. I also ordered the 10 just in case the 8 didn't work and the 10 didn't look as good as the 8 and really didn't give any additional space in the lower half. I am a 34 B and the top fit OK, but I would recommend fashion tape to avoid having the top fold over.

I loved the feel of this dress. I wore it to a black tie event and thought it would be too casual but the sequins, ruching and blingy accessories made this dress perfect for the occasion. I thought the dress was gorgeous. It fit well and sparkled in all the right areas.

I fell in love with this dress on the site, and though it was lovely in person, it just didn't work on my (very) full bust, despite the size and fit recommendations. The chiffon draping hung oddly at my chest and changed the entire shape of the dress. Luckily, my backup dress fit me perfectly.

This dress is so adorable and chic! It came down to about the mid-thigh and was a bit short but if you have shorter legs and wear sky high heels it will make your legs look great! I'm sad that I couldn't wear this dress, but I am definitely going to try to rent it again.

Very cute dress... but doesn't not fit well on my hour glass figure. I'm inbetween a 4 and 6 right now, and the only difference between sizes was the bust area. The 4 fit fine for the bust (34B) but the 6 was big. The waist and skirt part of the dress were very tight while the "flowing" part of the dress, where the sequins are, was big and very unflattering! Couldn't wear neither dress. Glad it was my backup and my first pick dress looked great!

Think twice.
When i first ordered this dress i was really excited, it looked great online. But when i recieved it in the mail the following week i wasnt that excited. The over lay looked cheap and streched out. But with fashion tape every thing was fine. All my friends thought i looked great and i had a great night! Consider it!

I think just about everyone asked about the dress and thought it was beautiful. I felt like a million bucks without having to spend it!
This was the first time I'd tried RTR. I rented this dress for a banquet event and was a little leery about size and whether it would get there to my house on time. I was more than impressed! The dress arrived on the exact day it was supposed to and was in great condition. I'd actually ordered it in two sizes afraid that it might run small or fit wrong, but it fit true to the size I usually wear and was even more beautiful in-person. It was actually comfortable, too! I would definitely recommend this dress and renting from RTR in the future.

Snug in all the right places!
I was overall very pleased with this dress. It fit like a glove, which is to say I did a bit of hip manuvering but in the end I was pleased with how it fit. I did also rent a size larger, however the larger size made the top appear too big and was not as flattering as the smaller size. The pleating and sequins gives the dress a unique look but also made it initially appear almost wrinkled. I think it was supposed to look like that and when it was on seemed to fall into place.

Fast shipping, and thanks for the garment bag & fabric tape.
I'm usually a 00P/XXS, so the dress was loose and a bit too long. I'm not voluptuous either so it just looked straight (LOL). The belt area was weird. It looked okay, but the construction was actually flimsy and so-so at best. It did do its purpose though--not a bad LBD for the price.

Cute and Fun Dress for Parties
I wore this on NYE and it was perfect - sexy and fun without showing too much skin. I wore it with black tights as it was a colder night and it is fairly short (I'm 5'9"). It defines the waist nicely and the draping was flattering. I'm glad RTR included tape because the top would flop over a bit to reveal the clear rubber-like material that helped keep it up. Overall, very cute and would recommend this dress to a friend!

Lovely!
I rented this dress in a size 0 (I'm 5'3" 100 lbs) and it fit perfectly! It's really fun and was perfect for my party on new years eve. If I were to have one complaint, though, it would be that the front piece of the dress that wraps around the hips was a little looser than the rest of the dress, presumably from wear. However, it was still really flattering and I would recommend it to petite girls!

Beautiful dress
I absolutely loved this dress. I am a pretty curvy girl with a small waist so I found that I had plenty of room in the waist area but it was really tight around my butt so size up with your second size if you're curvy would be my best suggestion.

Eh
The dress is mediocre. I'm 5'6 with an athletic build and slightly on the skinnier side. The dress isn't the form-fitting dress that I was looking for. The sizes I also received were the appropriate but were a bit stretched.

Not Very Flattering
I liked the idea of the dress but it wasn't very flattering. Im somewhere between and hour glass and pear shape and the dress gave me no waist, I looked a bit like a box. Actually now looking at it again the model looks a little boxy too. Also the dress material seemed to have shrunk from multiple drycleaning so the hem was unevern. Im pretty consistantly a four and the dress was tight. The 6 felt better but was even more unflattering because of being to big.

Great party dress
It was a flattering dress. No stretch and true to size to order a back-up in a larger size just in case! The dress was a hit and it had just enough sparkle to make it stand out.

I wore this to an NYC charity gala, and it was perfect! Just enough sparkle to stand out from the other LBDs, and the length was very flattering for my short stature.

Katie, did you order another size in this dress and chose to go with the size 2? I'm trying to figure out if I should order down or up on my extra dress and we seem to be about the same size. Thanks in advance!

So many compliments!
This dress is beautiful - the picture does not do it justice. It runs true to size but has absolutely no stretch so be careful. If you're bigger on the bottom and smaller on the top, like me, your true size should work it's just a little snug in the derriere but not immobilizing. I wore this to a friends wedding last October w/ black tights. It was so chic and fun, I got a ton of compliments.

Unfortunately, the hotel I had this beautiful dress shipped to ended up misplacing it. While the dress wasn't found until after my event was over, RTR's fabulous customer service gave me credit for it even though they weren't at fault.

Fun, Classy, Gorgeous!
I rented this dress for my school's homecoming dance.. it stayed comfortable all night, no itchiness or falling down. It was the perfect length, not slutty short but not awkwardly long. It wasn't tight but it is form-fitting in some areas, like one side of the butt. Pictures do not do this dress justice! I tried including some full length pictures so you could see the sparkle, but it just didn't capture on film. I also included a picture of me sitting down so you could see how badly it rides up.. it gets pretty short! It was comfortable to dance in and I even bowled in it afterwards with no riding up or feeling uncomfortable! Overall I loved the experience and revieved many compliments and I will definately be renting again!

I did not wear the dress.
I didn't end up wearing this dress for New Years Eve last year. It was lovely, but just didn't look good on my body. There was no give or stretch in the fabric at all, and for a pear-shaped woman like me, it just didn't work.

This dress looks really cute and almost sweet on the model on the website but don't let it deceive you!! It is a HOT dress!! I don't think I eve looked so good. The dress is pretty short and hugs your body to make you look great!! It's a really great dress and I would rent it again for something else I want to look drop dead gorgeous in.

It was a great dress , just the right amount of sparkle. Looked a bit worn though.
I really liked this dress. Wore it for my birthday dinner. However, the material was very thin. And it did feel tight at the bottom. However, I would recommend this for a dinner. Not for dancing. The RTR customer service was great.
