Anniversary dinner
Beautiful dress, and I received lots of compliments!! The mesh is nude but not sheer (wear whatever color underpinnings you want), and the sequin overlay covers lumps and bumps nicely. You will need a backless bra. The dress has a good amount of stretch but is body con so you may want to size up.

Didn't want to send this gem back!
I took a gamble on this dress since there were zero reviews, but I hit the lottery! This dress is the perfect amount of sexy and sophisticated! It's got stretch so it hugs your curves perfectly. I'm so sad to send it back, but I will absolutely rent this one again!! The back is open so you can't wear a traditional bra, but that was totally fine for me! I'm also on the shorter size (5'2); the dress came down to the top of my calf which was perfect. You won't be upset renting this one!

Everyone loved the dress and everyone stared.
The fit was great, definitely true to size. I did not like how the under dress would come out.. it was annoying having to fix the back and front of the dress every time I moved. Besides that GREAT DRESS!

I wore this dress for my birthday dinner and I absolutely love it!!! Very fitting so not very forgiving on certain areas but still stunning. Definitely renting this again. Pictures don't do this dress justice!

Sparkles!
The fit was very comfortable, the back was low enough that you need to wear a sticky bra. The cut and length made it modest enough to wear around my family and the sparkle overlay made it sexy and fun. I got a ton of compliments and I was sad to send it back!

Gorgeous fancy dress
This dress is gorgeous and glitzy! It was snug and hugs the curves. Unfortunately for me it was a tad too small (Medium) and didn't wear it, but beautiful nonetheless.

Love!
I absolutely adored this dress! It was stunning! The nude underlay was a bit darker than I expected but it was still beautiful. It is cut quite low in the back so I decided to go with an adhesive bra. I received so many compliments and did not want to take it off! I would recommend this dress to everyone.

Fit like a custom dress!
This dress fit like a dream. I wore it to my organization's gala and received so many compliments. I was also able to wear a headset with it with ease (fitting a battery/mic pack comfortably is something that is always hard to find in formal dresses). I received so many compliments and remained comfortable all night. Only complaint is that the lining kept sneaking out of the bottom and the dress kept shifting making the split move in the back.

Fits amazing!!!
Used this dress for a video post wedding and absolutely loved it! It's comfortable, sparkles nicely with the sequins and fits like a glove! The back of it is totally sexy. It does run a bit small as the large was on the smaller side, but great none the less. I'd wear it again!!

This dress was a showstopper!!!!!
This dress made me feel fabulous!! The only thing I found "wrong" with the dress is the sleeves were a bit snug. Outside of that the dress was amazing!!! I was able to wear a regular strapless bra with it and it didn't show. I got so many compliments all night! This one was definitely one for the books!!

Incredible dress!
One of my best rentals yet. I am usually a size XS, but it's a snug fit, especially in the sleeves. The small was perfect. I received so many compliments, I am sad to send this back!

Awesome bday dress!
I normally am between a 6 and an 8 and the medium fit great. I would rent this dress again. I still could wear spanx bottoms. I bought the little sticky bra from RTR. This dress was super comfy, I felt great. I wore it for a fancy dinner and drinks after.

Absolutely beautiful!
I ordered the dress a size bigger based off the reviews. The dress fit beautifully and was a hit the whole night. Only complaint I have is the lining underneath seemed to be a tad bit longer than the shiny black material but overall would wear again!

Great dress for a cooler evening!
Amazing dress!!! Fit very snug and cozy. Was able to wear under garments/shape-wear despite the low cut back. The low cut back was so stunning and made the dress so sexy. The sequins were a a bit scratchy when pulling on and off the gown so be careful not to scratch your skin. The nude fabric lining shows a little bit in the back where the slit is but can be fixed w fashion tape or pins. Lots of compliments and totally different than any other gown at the event.

This was a stunner.
My 2 cons were my shoulders and arms are tight in this due to being athletic and the slit in the back was showing the nude liner a lot due to stretching.

Runs small, could wear both the large and the medium. Wore the large because I thought it would help stop the lining from moving around.

This is a beautiful dress. Unfortunately it was too small for me and I didn't get to wear it to my event. I'll try to rent it in a larger size in the future.

Sparkle and shine!
This dress is amazing! I wore it for a dinner date with my husband for my 29th birthday. I highly recommend it. Loved the fit, especially the open back. One thing to note, the back is quite low so no bra or if you wear one of those low bras make sure it's low enough. If you're small cheated and you wear no bra prepare to look like you have no boobs. The only other downside to this dress was that the lining was showing near the slit area but it didn't bother me that much. I felt like a glamorous diva in this!

Perfect for the curvy girl
Loved this dress! I received compliments all night and it was soooo comfortable. As a curvy girl, the cut and fit of this dress was very flattering. Minimal jewelry and black pumps completed my "look". I am a 34DDD and I have to wear a bra, but I just made sure it was a low strap and it didn't show. I wish I could rent it again and again!

Wore this to my companies holiday party and received so many compliments! Definitely runs a little small. I faithfully wear small or extra small. Never even considered a medium. The small worked but a medium would have as well.

Great choice for the holiday season
I'm 5'2 and weight 120lbs and had a baby 9 months ago, so this body con dress was exciting to be able to wear! Full disclosure I wore some spanx underneath but that was more to feel better for myself than necessary for the fit. The lining was very comfortable, and the dress is very stretchy. For someone that is short, the length was about mid-calf and looked like it was intended to be that length. I receive compliments on the dress and it photographed very well. For a body conscious momma who isn't super confident in her body, this was a wonderful way to be covered and be fun/sexy.

I ACTUALLY FELT LIKE A QUEEN WHO TURNED EVERY HEAD, EVERYWHERE I WENT!
This dress was true to size! I'm very bottom curvy and it securely supported every curve that I was born with. I received sooo many compliments about the dress and how it appeared that the dress was 'see-through' because of the nude colored lining. But it was all an illusion! I will rent again!!

Great dress!!
I was pleasantly surprised to find the fabric is nice and stretchy! I definitely could have squeezed into the medium but the large fit my shoulders and the length of my arms a little better. You definitely have to wear a backless bra with this one. Overall it was such a beautiful dress and I'd highly recommend it!

Ended up wearing medium over small. A little bit tight in the arms, but medium size was perfect.

Great for Great Gatsby
This dress has been one of my favorite rent the runway rentals! It is so comfortable that you don't even feel like your wearing anything. I am 15 weeks pregnant with my second and was able to fit my belly in the dress with no problem. I was able to wear normal bra and just pinned it down. It kept me warm on a cold Minnesota winter night. I wore it to a themed wedding but I would rent this dress over and over again!

Seamless ordering and fits that make my world shine!
Ordered the small and medium as usual .. wore the medium because I love to eat but small was perfect too...It has plenty of stretch.. the hem peeked out and it seems that this is an issue with the saylor brand.. used double sided tape.. didn't wear a bra.. elegant fit. I have never ever received compliments with a dress like this and I order all my dresses for RTR! We went out to dinner with my hubby and literally heads were turning. I had kids say " mum she is sparkling ".. I had men.. women.. young and old.. straight and gay men and women stop at our table to compliment me. We even got someone send a bottle of wine to us.. I will be getting this dress again! I felt like a celebrity .. it got to a point I couldn't even go to the bathroom because of the stares!! I got a couple of people ask me where they could buy it! Thanks RTR my birthday weekend was a blast. Get this dress. If you don't like attention don't get it because I got so so much attention if I had attention issues they were fixed lol.

Absolutely stunning dress that made me feel SO beautiful in! Best New Years dress.
Fit is perfect. I can understand why people say it was a little tight, but for me, it was the PERFECT fit. Actually made me look like I had a butt :) Received so many compliments and felt beautiful in it. It is hard for me to find a long tight dress being so tiny, but this dress couldn't have fit better. Highly recommend renting!

My favorite RTR dress by far!
I absolutely loved this dress! I received so many compliments on it that I hated to give it back! I usually wear size M or L however I ordered a L and XL (from past RTR orders I now go a size up). While the L fit, I decided to wear the XL as it felt more comfortable. Definitely would recommend this rental!

I wore this for NYE and got a lot of compliments - it was form fitting but giving so I wore the large to avoid a droopy bottom (I wanted the hour glass fit all the way through) and it rocked ! Loved this look

Perfect dress for New Years Eve!!
I rented this dress for New Years Eve and I loved it! It fit like a glove and I got so many compliments on it! I ordered the small but I ended up wearing the extra small. The sleeves were a little shorter and so was the length in the XS. Not much difference in the two sizes otherwise. I am 5'3 and it hit me just below my knee. I loved the long sleeves and length. It was classy and sexy at the same time while still being warm. I loved it so much I went out again the next night just so I could wear it again before sending it back! Definitely one of my favorite rentals!
