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')

Product Details

Black chiffon with sequins. Strapless neckline. Pleated bodice. Draped skirt. Hook-and-eye closure. Hidden side zip. 28'' from top of bodice to hem.

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.

Didn't work for me
Rented the size 0 and 2 for a work Christmas party. It came a few days after the event, but even if it had come on time I still wouldn't have worn it. The overlay was loose and didn't lay right on the dress, the size 0 was way too small on my bust and a little large in the waist. The 2 was way too large on my waist.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

I felt great wearing this in Vegas!
I wore this last spring break in Vegas for a night out. I loved it, but it did fit a bit small, and the top kept slipping down. Fashion tape helped a bit, but not much. The only downside was that the dress I received was a bit worn. Overall, I'd recommend it and would probably rent again.

The dress was pretty but didn't work well with my body!
The length of the dress was good for my height, but the material made me look heavy. We had to tape the layers of fabric down and we went up a size. I would recommend this dress for someone who has a sleeker body type. But i did get a lot of compliments on the dress because it was one of a kind! This was my second time renting form RRW and i will do it again, i love it!! I would post a picture but its not letting me right now.

I loved the intricate, subtle detail!
I rented this as a back up for a formal wedding and ended up going with my first pick, but could have easily worn this one. Thankfully I got a back-up size one size larger than I normally wear, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to give this dress four stars. But the larger size fit perfectly. I loved how it hugged my legs, but had draping that was forgiving in my mid-section. Because the details are so subtle, it can almost seem too plain - but I still loved it!

Expected incredible, but ended up disappointed...
I had high hopes for this dress. As someone with a straight and narrow body type, I thought the middle would cinch in more and create an hourglass figure. This wasn't the case. It was still hot because of the mini length, but it wasn't a WOW dress on me. I imagine if you're a little curvier, you'll look great though!

Simple but flattering
The sparkles in this dress don't show as much in person as in the photo, and it definitely runs on the tight side, but it felt and looked great nonetheless.

Gorgeous dress but runs small
Did not end up wearing the dress since it was a little too tight around the dress. Dress is really pretty maybe in a bigger size it would have worked out. Would recommend for someone who is not very hippy though.

Great LBD!
Definitely order a size up!! I'm normally a size 2 or 4, so I got the 4 and 6 but I wish I had gotten 6 and 8. 6 was snug, especially in the bust (I'm actually 32DDD or 34DD), so I wish I could've tried on the 8. That being said, I LOVE this dress and it was super flattering! More than your typical little black dress, the waistline defined shape without being super form fitting and the sequins were a nice detail. Would highly suggest this dress for a formal or semi formal occasion, just don't be afraid to size up!

Perfect LBD with a little pizzaz
Fit perfectly & looked great on! Rented it for 2 separate occasions (a NYE party & a fancy dinner out in LA). The dressed was perfect or both occasions! Use double sided tape to prevent the dress from shifting. I am the curviest on my hips, the dress fits small around that area so take that into consideration when choosing a size!

It wouldn't be a bad idea to go 2 sizes up especially if you have a full bust. I wore a size 8 and it was almost too small.

I normally wear a size 8 but needed a size 10 in this dress to accommodate my hips. The top was therefore a little loose but still wearable being that my chest is bigger than it used to be from breastfeeding :) I suggest a good padded strapless bra under this dress if you are a pear shape like me.

Beautiful Dress
I loved this dress but it runs very small. I normally wear a six but I have a very curvy hourglass figure. I ordered and 8 and 10 because I read that this runs small, I ended up wearing the 10! I wore it to a black-tie function and did not want to wear a long dress there. It was perfect! I dressed it up with sparkly heels and sheer black stockings and I got a lot of compliments. It is however, fairly short.

Never got to wear it...
It was a beautiful dress but it didn't fit because of a tight inner lining. Being busty and having a booty didn't help. There was no give at all with this dress unfortunately.

The earrings I rented to go with the dress!
This is a really cute dress, but hard to fit if your hips are even slightly bigger than your bust. The top fit beautifully, but the bottom was too tight over my hips. I didn't end up wearing it to the event.

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.

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.

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.

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.
