Way too long

This dress looked really nice but was at least a foot longer than it was on the model and came well below my knee which was really disappointing.

Sparkly and comfy

Beautiful dress. High quality material. Loved the straps. Very comfortable. Vegas was chilly - material was thick and warm. Did not need spanx. A little long, but I'm short. Highly recommend.

The fit and the feel!!

The fit was true to size, it fit like a glove, but the material was soo comfortable, it was almost soft and stretchy on the inside. Got a ton of compliments, the length was classy too. There's a slit at the back that gives it a sexy touch. Would recommend!

Loved this dress!

I loved this dress! It does t look cheetah print like the online photo shows. It's just black sequin which in my opinion is even better. You can wear a regular bra with it since the straps are adjustable and slightly thicker than a bra strap which was a definite plus! I'm only 5'2" so the dress hit me mid shin. Overall I was very happy with it and got tons of compliments.

I Want to Keep This Dress!

This dress was e-ver-y-thing! I rented two different dresses and this was my back up in case I didn't like the first one. Although this dress retailed for less it was hands down more well made than the other. It fit like it was made for me. It was comfortable and sexy. I received soooo many compliments and felt amazing. Great experience thanks RTR!

Obsessed with this dress. Didn't want to take it off

This dress is everything. Sexy, timeless, and fits amazing. The straps are adjustable, but it's more revealing if you have larger chest. The length is perfect. Very flattering.

Dazzling Dress!

Wore this for an awards ceremony at work. It was a "red carpet affair". I loved how glamorous it was and the fit being just at my knees. I'm 5'4 and usually an 8 and the medium was perfect. I wore spanx to give me more of an hourglass feel. Very stretchy with room in the hips. The post says you can wear a regular bra-- really that's a regular strapless bra as the straps are quite thin. They are also adjustable which was great for me! I got so many compliments on this dress! If you haven't worn all sequins before it is something to adapt to, but it's worth the WOW!

Wore it in Vegas

Very comfortable & stretchy! I received lots of compliments, even from strangers. The only criticism is that it's a bit too long, a few inches below the knee. Really shows off curves!

Soooo itchy

I rented this as a backup dress. The sequins were so itchy I couldn't wear it for more than 10 minutes. I would never last a whole night in this dress.

The Fit

I loved the fit. I am 5'2", size 16 in dresses. I loved that you could adjust the shoulder straps to secure a good fit up top. My hips are about "44, the dress fit perfectly around my thighs. The sequins were a little rash where my arms came in contact with the side of the dress but I wore a little sweater over it and it was fine. I received many compliments.

Flattering sparkler

The fabric was heavy and sucked everything in quite nicely. It hit just below my ankle and gave me a great shape. I'm 5'8" 34B 27" waist 39" hips and the XS was a nice snug fit.

The most unforgettable part of my night? The constant twisting & pulling to one side with each step.

Cute dress. It fit well when I tried it on...but my mistake was not walking around in it at that time. When I actually wore the dress for a night out, it was incredibly annoying. The lining of the dress twisted with every step I took, which made the dress pull to one side. I was constantly having to go to the bathroom to untwist the dress. Also, the sequins under the arms were irritating...but I was expecting that might be the case. Overall, the dress was a regret. It ended up being an annoying distraction all night, when I should have been focusing on celebrating my sister's 40th birthday.

This is a sexy dress with enough sparkle to stand out, even though it's black.

The medium fit a little too big, while the small was a little too tight. It's about mid-calf length, and suitable for formal, or semi-formal.

Love this dress. It was perfect for my red carpet event.

The straps are adjustable, the dress has stretch and it is so comfortable. I got so many compliments. I fit in the Large, but the XL just had a bit more give.

xmas party

wore this for an xmas party and it was perfect! overall fits true to size but definitely on larger side (i am a small or medium and this fit me in the size small). sexy and form-fitting. the sequins do not look cheetah print as described but just looks like cute black sequined dress. unlike the photo it hit me just below knee for almost a midi-dress look (and I am almost 5'7"). was able to wear my usual bra which was a huge plus. i am very pear shaped w/ wider hips and have a hard time finding dresses at all, and this still worked! if you are pear or hourglass do not be afraid to try!

The dress I got was a much longer version well below the knees!

Unfortunately, the dress I got was mid length and too formal. I was looking for a fun party dress as shown in the picture that is above the knees. Besides that, it's beautiful with lots of sparkly sequins. Stretchy and comfortable.

Photo on the website and the dress that arrives are not the same. Add 14" to the length.

I rented this dress for NYE, and when it arrived, it is at least 12-14" longer then the picture, and I am 5'9". This is my first rental and to say I am unhappy is an understatement. Now I don't have a dress from NYE. The overall fir of the rest of the dress is perfect, it hugs the body perfectly.

Comfortable and sexy BUT it is WAY longer, WAY past the knees. Picture is wrong.

Wore for a birthday and Christmas - loved it, very comfortable, but was disappointing because the picture is incorrect. Sure, it covered more legs and I was warmer this way, but I wanted something slightly sexier.

Long but beautiful

Got compliments from strangers! Thick, good quality fabric that hugs your body but hides any belly fat. The size small fit me perfectly because I'm busty, but I would recommend sizing down as a backup size

This dress was perfect for the NYE party. The sequins did not attach to anything and it was lined great not too heavy but warm. The only con is that it was longer than the picture it came below my knees.

This dress fit like a glove

Loved the sequins and the fit, really helped that I could wear a normal bra with the dress. However, the dress was past my knees, I was hoping it would be more mini skirt length.

Long, but cute for NYE

As other reviewers stated, this dress is not above the knee as pictured..I'm 5'7" and it was about 2 inches below my knee. The overall dress was comfortable an fit well...just wish it would have been the length expected.

Much longer than on model!

This dress had a cute fabric and fit true to size, but is about a foot longer than it looks in the model's picture. I ordered the MR, and am 5'8, and the dress came to my mid-calf. Not at all what I was expecting and it didn't fit the fun NYE style dress I was looking for.

Stylist Review

I love the sparkle on this dress by Dress The Population!! This dress runs true to size, recommend getting your usual size as your primary and going one size up for the backup size. This style is comfortable throughout the midsection and straight throughout the hips, as it is a shift style dress so it does not hug your curves. Works best for A-C cups, as it is more fitted at the bust area. This should be worn with a strapless bra. This dress hit me mid calf so it is a bit longer than expected, as I am only 5,4 in height. As mentioned, I really do love the embellishments on this piece, it definitely makes the dress! I would pair this with black heels (as pictured) and maybe some pretty pearl jewelry to keep the look classy and elegant.

Really cute but...

The silhouette is great- figure skimming but easy to move in. That said, I cannot stand the straps- they look like a bra strap which makes it look a lot cheaper than other similar dresses I've gotten from Dress the Population. If you're in this for the cheetah style sequins, it's not very apparent though it's definitely there. I've got an event coming up so I'm renting a bunch of options, but this one isn't making the shortlist.

Loved this dress. It was so comfortable. Would definitely rent again!

This dress has a lot of stretch, so it didn't feel tight. I loved the tea length. The sequins were not itchy/scratchy at all. There is a soft lining under the sequins. Size G/H breasts so I wore this with a strapless bra and felt comfortable all night. I like that the straps on this dress are adjustable for extra support. I normally wear a size 12 in everyday clothing and a 14 in dressy dresses. The extra large was perfect.

I think the manufacturer label was wrong

I ordered the XL thinking it would be plenty big, I was wearing for a St. Patrick's Ball and knew we would be dancing. Since I always order designer dresses 1 size up from what I normally wear. The XL fit fine. I ordered the XXL as my backup size, and tried that one on too, it fit EXACTLY the same as the XL. I held them up together, they were the exactly the same. The tags inside said XL and XXL, but I think the manufacturer had the XXL labeled wrong, since I normally wear a size 12, ordered the XL for a 14-16 so it would be comfortable, the XXL says it's for 18-20 which should have been falling off of me and it fit like a 14. It may have just been the one dress that was mislabeled, but be cautious.
