Stand out dress

Wore this dress to an event at the aquarium, and I loved it :) First warning: this dress is short!!! But wow I got compliments all night! I was debating between wearing a small and a medium, but they both were equally tight around the legs and the small was more flattering on me, so I went with the small. This dress will hug all your curves, so don't wear this if you're planning on eating a lot at dinner because the tummy bulge will show... but otherwise, if you're looking for a showstopper, get this dress! At least 7 strangers stopped me during the night to compliment the dress.

Sexy Cocktail Party Dress

I rented this for a cocktail party at an upscale venue. I wore the Large, though I did find it a little more snug than I'm used to, but with some spanx it fit fine and was comfortable all night, though a little shorter than I normally wear. I got lots of compliments and it was a sexy dress for a fun night out.

Great Vegas Bachelorette Party Dress

I got compliments from every girl in the party! With that said, this dress definitely runs small, I normally am closer to a medium, but the large was even pretty snug. It is pretty short, but was not a problem for me. One problem I usually encounter is having a dress be too small in the bust. This however had a little give. Bonus points for RTR sending this to our AirBNB for a smooth rental experience. Would rent again!

Stylist Review!

The Gold Leaf Sheath is the perfect dress for a night out! Dress The Population nailed it with this dress for the upcoming season. Running true to size with the zipper along the back, we recommend going a size up with this piece. The bust is very comfortable and can be worn with your standard bra. Fitted at the natural waist and hips with some a little stretch, this piece hits about mid thigh. Pair with black or gold heels and a stunning lip and be prepared for an amazing night!

Sparkly and fun

I'm always so impressed with RTR's customer service. I got this dress as an emergency overnight replacement when my original choice just didn't fit. I'm usually a size 10-12 in dresses, mostly because of my belly and large chest. This dress was generously cut up top (even in the sleeve) and through the waist. I was even able to put it on over my head without unzipping. Under the sequins is a stretchy, soft fabric that is very forgiving. The material is thick and the sequins hide any lumps and bumps. I'm only 5'1" so the dress wasn't overly short on me but I can see how it would be! I couldn't wear regular spanx underneath because they would show on my thigh. Like any sequin dress, your underarms start to get a little raw by the end of the night. I don't know if i would rent again, but I think this is a pretty forgiving, easy to fit dress for most people.

Sooooo good

When I removed it from the garment bag I was nervous that it would be too small, then I slipped it on and discovered there is stretch (amen!) Fit perfectly and everyone was obsessed.

The only con is that it was a bit itchy. Other than that it was great. Great fit. Hugs the right places.

Classy and fun!

This was my first time renting and RTR did not disappoint. I loved the look and fit of the dress. It felt a little snug but I had a baby a few months ago and am not yet back to my pre baby size. I felt beautiful and my husband loved it! Perfect dress for a Postmodern Jukebox concert. My only complaint is that the sequence hurt underneath my arms. By the end of the evening, I was ready to take it off! The dress was worth being uncomfortable for:) I rented both a medium and a large and went with the large.

I felt gorgeous!

I wore this for my homecoming dance, and even though the dance itself didn't go down so well, I know that I looked like fire. It reached about mid thigh (maybe a little higher) on me, and I'm 5'4, so if you're tall it may be rather short. I'm normally a size 10 (occasionally a 12) and rented the L and XL. They both fit, but I preferred the tighter fit of the L. The dress is very interesting and I loved it--except for those darn sequins under the arms, which is why I docked a star. If you're going to be dancing a lot or have bigger arms (like me), those sequins are going to be scratchy and annoying. I brought a little cropped cover up thing in case they started to bug me too much, which they did. Overall, though, this is a beautiful and flashy dress.

Perfect for autumn

The dress fit like a glove, and was super comfortable to dance in. It was absolutely perfect for a fall/Halloween wedding. However, be warned; the sequins do not lay all the way flat meaning your armpits may or may not get rubbed the wrong way every now and then.

College Reunion

I got a ton of compliments on this super glam/hot dress. I wanted to keep it. The only problem is it runs pretty small. I am a size 4 at 5 feet 2 inches and I had to squeeze into the medium. If you are on the fence get the medium and large. Otherwise the delivery and drop off was so easy.

This dress is a showstopper!! You will definitely stand out (in a good way) in this dress!

This fits like a glove & hugs all your curves. It's the perfect length (mid-thigh), & is a thicker material (great for a Fall wedding)! The sequins do rub under your arms, but nothing major. I could have worn the Large, but needed a little more room for my bust & wanted to make sure I would be comfortable all night. I received compliments from the bride & sooooo many guests. It's definitely a gorgeous dress & I'm sad to see it go! I'll definitely rent it again!!!

ORDER 1 SIZE UP!!!

I'm a size 2/4, & ordered a small. I guess bc it's a body con dress , it's supposed to be tight, but I don't think the size chart factors that into the size they suggest! I was so excited to try out this dress to wear to an "everything that glitters"-themed auction for my kiddos' school. Very disappointed! ORDER UP, EVEN IF BETWEEN SIZES- ORDER 1.5 sizes up!

Stand out sparkles in a comfy stretch fabric.

I wore this dress for a charity masquerade party over Halloween weekend. I was going to order the L & XL but the XL was out so I decided to go with the M & L (I'm usually a L in designer sizing). The L fit perfectly and I could've even worn the M! The material underneath the sequins is a soft jersey/cotton feeling stretch material and the sequin pattern wraps all around you and hides anything underneath. Normal bra/no spanx required. I decided to go with the L for more dancing room. My personal stats won't update so here they are now: 141lbs, 5'4", 34DD. I would definitely rent from this brand again.

What a relief! It was perfect!

I was so excited when I tried this dress on. I'm a size 0-2 and 115 lbs and the small fit me like a glove. I didn't have to keep tugging it down throughout the night, as sometimes happens with shorter dresses. The underside of my arms were a tad irritated from the sequins by the end of the night, but that was to be expected. Overall, I was SO HAPPY.

Unforgettable Birthday Dress

Ordered both L & XL and went with the XL. I'm a DD so need more room. Received multiple compliments and just felt amazing. Dress is tight and short so be careful dancing and getting in and out of the car lol. I love this dress and would rent again! I highly recommend!

Comfortable and sexy

I wore the smaller size because it was more flattering. The dress is very stretchy, but beware it is short! I'm 5'2" so it wasn't noticeable on me, but taller ladies may want to think twice. I received many compliments all night. It was a good weight and the sequins didn't scratch me at all.

What Glitters Is Gold!!

This is the perfect Vegas dress...a little black a little gold, perfectly short without feeling like a hoochie mama! The plant like gold design is so flattering the way it wraps around the body, and it's so shiny people were turning heads left and right! Not itchy at all, and I couldn't have imagined anything else ever fitting like a glove!

Gold Sparkly Dress

Absolutely loved this little gold and black sparkly dress! It's body conscious, short, & super fun! It's one of those dresses that you'll never buy because you really can only wear it one time. Perfect rental if you're looking for something party ready!

Fun Dress for 20s Party; Just Short!

I ordered this for a 20s party and it was fun a cute! I am 5'9" and this dress was really short on me! Everything was covered but it was definitely a mini skirt type of style (a longer length would have fit better with the 20s style). Other than the length, the dress fit great. I am 5'9" and about 135 lbs and I wore the Medium.

Standout dress for holiday party!

Great dress that runs true to size. It has some stretch so it's comfortable and holds its shape throughout the night. Hugs your shape, but not in an uncomfortable way. The sequins are perfect for special occasions! I rented both the XS and S and ultimately went with the S because the XS fell at mid thigh and the S fell a little above my knees. This felt more comfortable for me for my husband's office holiday party. I recommend this rental and would definitely rent it again.

Perfect hostess dress for silver and gold Xmas party.

Super fun party dress! I don't normally do all sequins but I took a risk with this dress and it paid off. The quality is incredible and it photographs really well. I got a ton of compliments all night. Beware that it is very short (I'm 5'10") and rides up even shorter with dancing and movement. It's a tight but comfy/true to size fit. I wore a large and am a size 10...I'm not sure it would work on someone larger.

Hugs every curve, which can be off-putting depending on your body image, but the detailing really distracts from any flaws, real or imagined.

Stunning

This dress was amazing!! I wore it to my work holiday party. It's was super comfortable and non stop compliments! It's the perfect dress for a party. I had one minor issue but it happened after a few hours of wearing the dress the sequence started to scratch under the arms. But that was barely an issue this dress is great!

Perfect dress for Holiday Party!

The dress fit was form fitting and the perfect length. I ordered small and medium, the small fit but I chose the medium to wear because it gave me a little more give when sitting. I wore this to a professional holiday party so I loved that it was flashy but was conservative since it was not revealing. I loved this dress, it definitely made me stand out and is the perfect dress for any holiday party.

Absolutely loved this dress but just thought it was too "fun" for my work party. Would love to rent this again for a different type of celebration! Warning for taller ladies, the dress is VERY short. I loved it because I have a hard time finding dresses that fall above my knee but this was great!

Be prepared to be the LIGHT of the party!

Rented for NYE, and this dress definitely looked the part with all the sequins! Be warned: you will DEFINITELY reflect the light around you. The dress fit pretty true to size, but is very, very, form fitting, so for me shapewear was an absolute must. My plans changed from a club to a more low-key house party, so I ended up going with a different dress, but this look absolutely screamed NYE bling.

Non-stop Compliments!

Wore this dress to my office holiday party and it was a huge hit! Unfortunately didn't get a good picture of me in it but everyone was complimenting me on it. It stands out but not too crazy. No real issues with the sequins irritating my skin which was great. Very flattering in the midsection for a body hugging dress. It was fairly short on me at 4'11'' so if you're concerned about it being too short take that into consideration.

The dress!

The dress is beautiful and received many compliments. It runs small, so make sure you order a back up size. I am normally a small, but I wore a medium in the dress. The dress shows your curves off and was comfortable.

A sparkly New year

Something that best describes the experience of wearing this dress is "I want to pick you up and hold you in the air, you're like a trophy" Fit was perfect, which made me very pleased considering my petite stature, but surprisingly a tad short for my taste. Reviews remarked itchy sequins under the underarm and I can attest to this, but it is merely a small annoyance, nothing major to worry about. I ended up picking this dress because it felt like a safe preference but even then I was completely wowed at how sparkly and beautiful this dress is. Received so many compliments throughout the night, and so happy I was able to rent it at a steal. Thank you RTR!

This dress is a showstopper and makes you want to show it off more than once!

The fabric is slightly stretchy, which is great if you want to throw your leg up for a group photo at the end of the night. Not everyone needs to be standing straight up with the same smile. I wore my back up size, which was a Large, my breasts needed the room, I am a 34DD. This dress is a little shorter than I originally thought, so make sure your legs are ready to be put on display! This dress has so much sparkle, I had to see it to believe it!

Gorgeous dress made my birthday celebration a night to remember!

This dress is sexy! Being petite, it's hard to find a dress that is truly a 'mini', and doesn't look awkward on me. This dress was definitely short, and it me in all the right places! I would say that the small was almost too small (I have a lot of junk in the trunk), but I made it work. My backup size was a medium and I didn't even bother trying it on - my husband was quite happy with how the small looked on me ;) There was some minor irritation from the sequins for me on both my arms and my thighs, but it was very minor. I really loved this dress, one of my favorites I've gotten from RTR.

Great NYE dress

This dress is waaayyy tighter than I'm used to but it looked great. Runs a little small and definitely required spanx. I usually wear a small and went with the medium. Tight across the booty! Sequins did not bother my arms. Gorgeous pattern, photographed well.
