Pretty but the dress was too long
Although the dress was just what I was hoping it would be, sparkle and color, the length was too long so overall it just looked terrible on me. I needed to return it and wear something I already had in my closet to the party I was attending.

Did not like the fit of this dress
This dress is very straight with little shape to it. I would not recommend it for petite figures. The size 0 of the original dress I rented was damaged or retuned late so this was sent as a back up. It was a lot more sparkle than I wanted for my bachelorette party dress. Maybe would have worn it if we were going Vegas or a NYE party.

Show stopper.
I had to wear the 2 because the 4 was worn. The 2 was tight but the four fit perfectly.

Perfect 30th Birthday!
I tried this dress on at the RTR store in Vegas months ago. I loved it! It's amazing in person. I ended up renting something else but knew I wanted to wear this dress for my birthday. My husband threw me a Vegas themed 30th birthday party and this dress was perfect! The sequins are more of a gold and turquoise color. Again, the dress is stunning in person. The back is sheer nude but I was able to wear a nude bra and it didn't show threw. I was a little in between sizes. The 4 fit perfect on the top but the bottom was too tight so I went with the 6. I was very comfortable all night. The dress is a great length and I felt great in it! One of my favorite rentals! If you want to stand out, this is a show stopper!

A conservative fit with a Vegas feel
Really didn't like this dress. Rented as a backup for a Vegas wedding. In the photo I have about 3 inches of hem pinned/taped up trying to see if it could be made to look a bit less dowdy, but it just didn't work. This many sequins just beg for a less conservative cut. The 8 fit but I didn't end up wearing it.

Didn't wear this dress because it was huge on me
I rented this dress as a possible option for my bachelorette party. I didn't wear it because the 2 was so large on me that it hung like an oversized potato sack. I don't know if it was mismarked or if someone else who was a lot larger wore it and stretched it out. In any case, I also expected this dress to be a mini and it was almost knee length on me. Overall very disappointing.

I wore this dress to a Rent the Runway Fashion show.
The dress fit well and was very flattering. I wore a size 2 but I normally am a size 4. It was a bit on the longer side for me but it worked for a fashion show. Super fun dress, I suggest trying it out!

Very Mature
I did not end up wearing the dress because it is very mature for me. The back isn't sheer it is more of a thin skin tone fabric. Also a size 8 is at the knees of someone 5'3 (no surprise but still). The dress was very straight and will not show any curves. I had to return it.

I felt like Blaire Waldorf! So much fun! Perfect for New Year's Eve.
The dress was a bit longer than I expected. Sometimes I have trouble with my lower half fitting into a size 10. I have serious hips. The dress was extremely flattering, and fit well. I was comfortable the whole evening. Literally every person I greeted throughout the evening complimented my dress. I couldn't be happier.

Loved it!
Runs slightly large and is a little longer than it looks on the model. I'm 5'7" and didn't expect it to be quite as long as it was. I was thankful to have the option of two sizes and went with the smaller. Very pretty dress that is silver at times and also teal-ish in other lighting.

Once Again I got "Best Dress of the Night" from perfect strangers...Another Amazing Dress from RTR!
I chose this dress for a Vegas themed charity event. I ordered sizes 0 & 2. I usually wear 2 but read some of the reviews that stated this dress runs large; I thought so too. I wore this with nude peep toe heels and sparkly toe nail polish. I used turquoise and gold sparkly eye shadow and a little bronzer and was off. The sparkles are gold"ish" and turquoise blue...it is a gorgeous dress! When we first arrived at the event I felt a little overdressed but right off two different women (that I didn't know) came up to me and commented on how great the dress was! The night got funner from there and the dress got more and more compliments! We are planning to attend another Vegas themed event in April and I will be renting this dress again!

Wore to a sorority formal. Beautiful sequins, got many compliments on how beautiful the dress was
Fit a little loose for my size but I doubt I could have down another size. I am much shorter than the model, and it hit me at the knee rather than at mid-thigh as in the model picture (had to pin it up). Was able to wear a nude bra without it showing. The hem of the dressed flounces a bit (not fitted tight through the lower thighs), and the dress itself was also fairly heavy. Still, I was comfortable all night and got so many compliments on the dress and how classic it looked.

Rent this dress now!
I had a blast in this dress for my bachelorette party. I was apprehensive that it wasn't "party" enough when I first tried it on, but turns out, I just needed to put on the smaller size (and who is gonna complain about that?!). It was below zero the night of my bachelorette party but I was pleasantly surprised by how well this dress paired with black tights and pumps. Super comfortable and flattering. Other reviews says that this dress "looks blue" in certain light. It doesn't look blue, it is blue. The sequins are a mixture of nude/blush and light mermaid blue. I felt amazing in this dress. It was hard to send it back :)

This dress rocks a night out in vegas
I wore this dress at vegas for my friend's 40 bday night out and I loved it! In the RTR pic the dress looks kind of gold but in reality the dress I would say is more like blue-silver looking. Changes color with the light. I think it runs a little big since I just had a baby and was size 4 but I am now size 6. This is my first time renting. If you are going to the Las Vegas store, be SURE that they give you a return envelope! They didn't give me one and had to pay out of pocket to return it here in PHX because my flight left at 11 am and that was the time the store opened the next day. They have the most awesome customer service I must say! I told them about the envelope and they said they would reimburse it for me!

I love the sparkles!
I must admit to being slightly upset when I first received this dress because I couldn't find just the right shoes to wear with it. It was far longer than I expected. I was worried it wouldn't fit my senior casino night theme! :( But once I got it on and got there, I felt just right. The dress was longer than I expected (I'm 5'9", so I expected short), but I was thankful not to have any adjusting to do every time I stood up and sat down! I liked the nude back which really helped set this dress apart from other sequined dresses. I normally wear a 6 and if anything else an 8 but because I heard people talking about how it ran large, I decided to order a 4 in my extra size and I'm so glad I did since the 4 fit perfectly. I also saw that the 6 had a hole in the side... Hopefully they get that fixed, but I would check on it before I rented the 6... Overall: I had a good time in the dress, it was okay! But I wouldn't care to rent it again and if I tried it on in a store, I never would have bought it.

Huge dress - not for petites
Being somewhat petite, I was prepared for this to be a little roomy on me, but it was way larger than expected. I read tons of reviews before ordering, focusing on reviews from girls who said they were my size...can't believe anyone called this dress "true to size." I normally wear a 0, so I ordered a 0 and a 2. I was absolutely swimming in the 0 -- it went down to my knees, and fit like a bag. Not a good dress for petites..if you can, order two sizes down.

Sexy withough being overly revealing.
Thought for sure I would be wearing the 4, but it was a little big in the armpits. Went with the 2 which did fit and was even more sexy a little tighter like that. Was for my bachelorette and my fiance told me to go with the 2! Had a great time in it. Little uncomfortable sitting in it for extended periods - but great party dress!

Felt like a sexy yet classy mer-woman
I wish I had a picture that did the color of this dress justice. It's like shimmery scales--not yet silver and not yet green. The back of this dress is EVERYTHING. And I got to go braless, which is always a big plus for me. The length is perfect (though I ended up in a size that is one or two less than normal, so order down). My arms didn't chafe from the sequins, as they are all basically in the "down" direction. Only down size is the bottom hem lacks stretch, so for super vigorous dancing, be careful not to tear it. The compliments were flowing--and when the lights from the dance floor hit the dress, you're like an explosion of awesome.

A Little Vegas Sparkle
I wore this dress to celebrate my birthday in Las Vegas. The dress is a beautiful ivory and Aqua blue sparkle. It wasn't all that flattering on my body shape, but it's a pretty dress. I wore the size 2 since it was a better fit on me. The 4 didn't cinch my waist where the elastic band is and it was at least 2 inches longer than the smaller size. I wouldn't rent it again, but it worked great in Vegas!

Wore this dress for my bachelorette party in Las Vegas.
The dress was really loose around my waist line, made me look pregnant. Also the sequins underneath the dress kept itching at my skin the whole night.

Not worth it. Runs large and is not the same color as photos.
I returned the 0 and 2 of this dress. I usually wear a 2 or 4, and the 0 was swimming on me. The color is also green, not silver. The "belt" is a band, and when the size runs so big, it offers no shape. I would not waste my money on this.

I couldn't wear this dress :(
This dress runs verrrrrrry large. I would size two sizes down. The biggest problem is the length. I am 5'11 and the size 6 came down to my knees. I unfortunately wasn't able to wear this dress because it was just too baggy.

Terrific dress for a fun glitzy party look
The pros: the sequins are a lovely arrangement of color (teal, gold, silver). The colors are just beautiful; once I saw the dress in person I understood why it's named "mermaid." The cut is conservative, so it would be great for a holiday party with coworkers. The cons: the fit was a little odd. It was pretty baggy on the top. The skirt fit nicely - not too tight and not too short. Given that I had some wiggle room in the skirt, maybe I should have tried the 2? I recommend sizing down for your backup. The 4 was okay, but gapped a lot around the waist/torso/bust. At least it was comfortable! Overall: fun party dress. Size down. Don't expect to wear tights - the sequins go all the way through the bottom hem. Pair with either gold or silver accessories. Keep your fingers crossed that there's a dance floor - this is a sparkler that begs to move.

Modest but stunning.
This dress has a modest hem and fit. I solidly wear a size 4 and the 2 was loose on me. It wasn't so loose that I wouldn't wear it - I wore it - but it wasn't the fit I expected based on the model pics. Many compliments. The color looked silver but sometimes blueish which I didn't mind. The sheer panel is not very sheer. I wore a nude bra and was 100% fine. I like this dress but glad I rented and didn't buy! Size one size down AT LEAST!

Perfect dress that will make you a sparkling star of the party
I wore this dress for a Christmas party and absolutely loved it! Originally I thought that there would be no way I'd fit into size 2 but I did and it was even a little loose! If you don't like it tight order your size but I'd say size down. This is a very comfortable dress, does not pull or climb up and you can dance your night away in it. It is not a minidress, I'm 5'6" and it hit a bit above the knee which was perfect for me. It makes the sequins look classy! The sequins are layered over each other so it creates fish scale like effect, which is very cool and does not scratch under arms. One thing though, the dress is not really cut for larger breasts, I wore a push up bra and had it gaping a little around the arms. I loved the "bare" back too! Overall this was my favorite dress in a long time!

I rented this dress for my bachelorette party and got tons of compliments! It was very comfortable and I loved that you could wear a regular bra. I wish the dress was a little tighter esp in the arm area but would definitely recommend this dress!

A little long!
I rented this GORGEOUS Erin Fetherson dress as a back up for my highschool's homecoming. It was absolutely stunning and would look great on the right body. I have a pettite figure and am almost 5'5". I got in a size 0 and the dress went about 2 inches past my knee. Luckily, it was just my back up and my actual dress fit great. I have farely long legs so I don't usually have a problem with dresses being too long but this one was. The bodice was also a bit loose. But, I would reccomend to girls over 5' 7".

Sparkly and fun - but a little long
I wore this for my bachelorette party and it was perfect for the occaison. It has a lot more blue/green than the picture shows. The dress is also a bit long. On me it could have been an inch or two shorter. But overall it was really fun to wear! The back is sheer, but not so sheer that you have to go braless. If you wear a nude bra you should be fine.

Gorgeous dress that ended up being too big!
I rented this dress to wear for a girls' night out in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, the 4 was too big. I would definitely recommend this dress though - it is very sparkly and pretty. I would especially recommend for someone who wants to be a little more modest at a bachelorette party or other similar event, since the dress is fun but not revealing.

The look on Hubby's face when he saw me in this dress!
This dress is just stunning! The sparkle and sequins really make this an absolute stunner. I ordered a 6 which is what I normally wear and a backup 8. The 6 fit ok but was somewhat tight under the arm area. I went with the 8 just because I did not want those sequins rubbing under my arm all night. It fit great. The hem hit just slightly above my knee. The hardest thing about this dress was trying to decide on what shoes to wear! So many options! I went with a black and gold t-strap Steve Maddens. Lots of compliments all night and lots of "Where did you get that?" I don't think there are really any cons to this dress other than if you are a bigger girl up top like me (wide shoulders, boobs, and bigger arms) than I would go a size up. I had zero problems with the length. I think I saw a lot of girls saying it was too long. It will be a bit longer if you are short. But I am 5'2 and like shorter dresses. But I liked the length on this just because I think it added more elegance to it and I didn't feel like I was too long at all. Fit more like a pencil skirt.

Beautiful dress unfortunately I did not wear it. I rented a 2 and a 4. I normally wear a 4. They were both very tight in the hips and loose on the top. The dress is also a lot longer then I expected. I'm 5'4 and the size 2 went to my knees. I did not end up wearing either size because I felt it was too tight on my hips and made me uncomfortable.

Fabulous dress!
Dress was gorgeous and not as heavy as I imagined. I wore the dress to chaperone a dance and was getting compliments on it all night by colleagues and students alike. The length was perfect, I was worried it would be too short, but with my short legs it went to the perfect length. My only complaint was the fit. The top was looser (maybe due to my lack of filling) and did not look like it fit. And then the bottom was tighter and I had to watch my posture all night to make sure there wasn't the significant "pooch" in the front that occasionally accompanies tighter dresses. The model's version looked to be looser at the bottom and I'm not a fan of tight fit.
