This dress is very pretty when I pulled it out of the packed! Beware though this dress runs extremely small! I received only an XS because the other dress I ordered was missing so I chose this one instead. I was so mad though because it did not fit!!! Order a size up or two instead or you will be let down so much!!!

This is a gorgeous, gorgeous dress! I wore it to a charity event and got compliments all evening -- I couldn't help but feel fabulous! Be aware that the bodice is very fitted. I usually wear a S and have trouble filling out the tops of strapless dresses, but I had to size up to the M in this dress and it stayed up perfectly.

I totally loved this dress. I don't actually think the bodice runs that small; I think it has zero stretch and is very structured so it feels tighter. I fit into my usual Small, but it was definitely super snug around my ribcage. I think if you have a large ribcage, you should consider ordering up 1 size. However, I felt completely secure in it all night (no chance of the top coming down because of the structure of the bodice) and got about a million compliments. It wasn't nearly as short on me as it is on the model because I'm petite, but still looked awesome. The skirt is amazing.

Runs quite small. I am usually a small or x-small (5'3", 123lbs, 33-27-35) and I would have needed the medium - although I'm afraid a medium would have looked absurd in the hips. Probably best for a pear shaped body.

The dress has such great detail!
Absolutely loved this dress! I wore it to a wedding and it was a big hit. The flowers are a bit more gold than in the picture but it is gorgeous. The top does run a bit small, I normally wear a 4-6 and the M was the right size.

This is a gorgeous dress - I got compliments all night! The bust area is a bit small so if you're getting two sizes, it makes sense to get the larger one also.

FABULOUS!
I had an amazing evening (homecoming!!!) in this dress! I got so many compliments and the best part was I could just send it back without having to worry about dry cleaning! Getting the 2 sizes was also great! I love this dress, and I am so happy that I rented it! It is more gorgeous in person!

Very cute but a little snug
I had so much fun wearing this dress. The skirt portion is puffy and fun and the top is kind of corset like (felt tight at times). The peacock feathers didn't look as peacocky as I expected but it was still fun to wear and I got a ton of complements.

I was told this was the best dress at the event. That's always nice to hear ;)
This is an amazing dress! I wore it to my sorority formal and got so many compliments! I was a little bit worried about the size because of the reviews I had read, but when the dresses came in the small and medium fit me. I chose to go with the medium, and once I got full of wine it was a bit snug. But overall I loved it and will be renting from rent the runway again! I'm including some pictures because I really wish I could have seen it on someone that wasn't a 5'9 100lb model before I bought it. Ha!

RTR makes every moment unforgettable
I wore this dress for NYE and it was great! It was a little tight in the rib cage, but I don't blame the dress, I blame the holidays for that. I had the size small as my backup, but that was too big for me. The XS fit, but no big meal for me that night. All in all, the dress was great! Perfect for a fun night :)

Cute, but a strange fit.
This dress is VERY cute, the rental I received was in very good shape, and I was just so disappointed when it didn't fit well. My measurements are 34-25-35, and the small, which I initially thought would be too tight for me, did fit well in the bodice, but it was pretty loose in the bust. This was surprising to me, since, while I am small, I have a C chest--and I usually never have a hard time filling out size 2 dresses. I think that I wasn't broad enough to fill out the dress, and while I could have used a padded strapless bra and stylist tape to keep it up, it just wasn't super flattering on me, and I would have been yanking it up all night long. I suggest that petite girls with a big bust be wary of this one, or order the XS as a back-up if you think you can fit. Boobs alone will not be enough to fill out the bodice. You'll need to be a little broader across the chest and back, or else it'll be roomy.

A truly unique and comfortable party dress. Loved it!
A beautiful, fun party dress that I didn't want to return! Super comfortable (well, for a corset top anyway), sexy (hello cleavage!) yet still tasteful (hit me a couple of inches above the knee). Great to dance in all night with no need to tuck in the tummy. And lastly, made of a unique fabric that demands notice.

Really fun dress--great if you want to stand out!
I got an XS and a S in this dress. I couldn't even zip the xs , but the S was a nice fit through the ribs. I felt like my breasts were a little small for it, and kept almost showing as the cup part of the dress slid down through the evening, but the corset made it feel like at least that part was really secure. The small was in ok condition--I felt like a little too much of the skirt lining showed in front and the feathers were pretty wrinked when I got it and I had to spend a lot of time smoothing it out. The XS looked like it had almost never been worn. You can see from the pics that it wasn't the best with my coloring--made me look even whiter, but I got so many compliments and I definitely felt like I made a statement and I'm glad I wore it to the masquerade event I attended.

as mentioned above ...
got so many compliments, it was super fun, comfortable, flirty and pretty without being sexy or sleazy. Im rather tall and it didn't look as short on me as it did on the model in the pic, if thats a concern. can work for both winter (like now, with leggings) and summer. this was my first rental from RTR and i was so pleased, totally recommend it

Best compliments were from people saying that the dress is "so me".
This was a great dress! It looked amazing in person and was fun and flirty while still being classy. I received a lot of compliments on it and it stood out in a sea of less detailed dresses. Definitely two thumbs up! I personally think it is better suited for small busts...maybe up to a C, at most. I am a D cup and my chest was definitely overly prevalent in the dress in my opinion. But that could also be coupled with the fact that the sizes available only went up to a medium, so I couldn't rent a larger size as an alternate.

Everyone loved the dress. One girl said that she was "obsessed" with it.
I rented this dress for my little sister to wear to her prom. She couldn't have been more pleased with it. It fit very well and the lace is absolutely gorgeous - much more metallic than it seems in the picture, in a good way. The dress is flirty with a nice amount of drama, but wasn't too sexy. She was able to dance all night in it and told me that she felt like the prettiest girl there.

Learning to Greek dance with all of my friends at the wedding in this metallic gold peacock feather dress!
This dress was a total show stopper! I got SO many compliments. The skirt was so fun to wear/dance in! I absolutely loved it. The bodice was flattering and comfortable - I didn't need to wear a bra. I am 5'6, 135 lbs., 34 C, and I wore a size small. Highly recommend this dress!

The dress looks fabulous on you. I am considering renting this dress. I noticed that in customer photos the skirt does not stick out as it does in the model photo. This might sound silly, but if i wanted to add volume do you think I would be able to fit a small petticoat underneath? Is there enough room under the lining?
RTR CustomerSeptember 19, 2012
Hi Lani! We do not recommend putting anything underneath. The dress does have a lot of volume in itself!

fabulous
got tons of compliments on it all night, sorry i don't really have a clear picture- but it is a GORGEOUS color, green-gold. made me feel like i was on the red carpet. the only complaints i had with it was the side zipper was hard to zip up, not because it was too small for me, but because the zipper was rough and not hidden. And after a night of dancing-the wire that holds up the cups broke out and stuck up into my skin :/

I loved looking down on that beautiful skirt all night.
The fabric is beautiful, especially on the skirt. The one problem I had was that it made my torso look very boxy. I am short wasted, and it wasn't doing me any favors.

This dress makes you feel comfotable, beautiful, and edgy at the same time. I would have given it 5 stars if it had more bust support and structure. Otherwise, it is definitely a winner!

No stretch, very comfortable, skirt has great movement, boning in bodice is helpful to keep it up, without becoming painful

Perfect fit! Very flattering! Compliments all night long!
Perfectly tight for my tiny waist so I wasn't tugging at all. Made my barely there chest look there. Sexy and elegant and super fun. Twirls all the night long. Lots of adoring looks and compliments. The best accessory was my confidence. I lit up the second the zipper was up. The only con is that the size difference between the XS and S was big. I wore the XS even though if felt a little tight and it was perfect. It is like it molded right to me.

Unique dress!
In the picture it looks green, but it is actually gold detailing on black. There is a lot of fabric under the skirt that makes it fuller, but on my particular dress it was all bunched in the front and stuck out from under the skirt which was a little annoying. I also had to be careful that it didn't fall down too low on my chest all night, even though it was tight around my waist (I'm a B). Otherwise, it was a beautiful and unique dress and I received a lot of compliments!

It was great for my special event where they took a lot of photos... So I wouldn't really wear the dress again... It was very complimentary to my figure and I didn't even need a strapless!

Perfect dress.
I rented this dress for a sorority formal at the zoo and, needless to say, it was the perfect fun and flirty dress. It fit fairly snuggly for a xs dress and accentuated my waist in a flattering manner. Since the bottom of the dress flares out, it gives your body a nice figure! I would definitely recommend the dress for any fun animal-themed party or formal event.

Rung in the New Year looking like a fabulous gilded peacock!
This dress was great, and was right at home at a fancy new years eve party. When I rented it, I was nervous that the skirt might have glitter on it. No need to worry, everyone! All that lovely sparkle and shine comes from metallic thread. So you won't need to worry about picking glitter of yourself, your date, and pretty much every other surface. The boning added some structure, and wasn't uncomfortable. I still needed a strapless bra in order to fill out the top, but that's not unusual for a small busted lady like me.

Was not able to wear it sadly
Unfortunately the fabric under the dress had stretched out and came down lower than the hemline so I was unable to wear this gorgeous dress. However, the dress itself was beautiful and the detailing was to die for. RTR was amazing about it though and gave me a full refund. I have rented since and had great experiences!

this dress is so unique and was the best for my formal!
the fit is very tight, so don't order it if you're not sure. I basically tried it on and was instantly on a diet. the color and look are true to the picture although the detail is even more amazing in person.

Perfect party dress! Loved the shimmer in the lace!
I ordered this dress for a 45th anniversary party for my husband's fraternity, which was just cocktail attire but I wanted something a little extra sassy, and this dress fit the bill! I am wide on top (nearly 36 A), so the Medium fit perfectly and overall the dress was comfortable. I am 5'5" and I was able to wear 5 inch wedges with out this dress looking too short. The only issue was when it arrived, the lace was all stuck together like velcrow and I actually had to iron it a little, since it made the lace wrinkle pretty badly. Aside from that it was great and a gorgeous dress in person! I complimented the goldish lace with green earrings and red lipstick. I got tons of compliments all night! It was fun to dance in and the RTR easy return was awesome.

So many compliments!
This dress was the best I've ever rented. There's gold thread detailing in the bodice that is incredible, and the peacock feather skirt is made of a fine gold and black lace. It's incredible comfortable and fits like a glove. I paired it with the elizabeth cole burst and chain earrings and they matched perfectly. Wish I never had to send this dress back!

super cute but not much room for the girls
if you have implants this may be a hard fit. my 34d's just wouldn't fit into the space provided and there is NO stretch in the top. you need to put it on over your head and not slip on from below if you have hips. i tried the small and medium and both were a no go. The material is cute but a little scratchy...

Beautiful and unique!!
I ordered a four and a six, because I was in the middle of the two. The dress itself is beautiful, with a industrial zipper (thank god!!). The gold lace overlaying the black satin kind of gives it a greenish tinge to it, but it was still gorgeous. I wore it to my senior homecoming, and the fit around the bust was snug, which allowed me to dance with doing the "pulling-up-my-strapless-dress" move.

My size in this dress must not exist!
I ordered both an XS and the Small. The XS was crazy small, and the Small fell down on the top - which does not work well for a formal event where you will be dancing. Yikes! I say "runs small" but that's not consistent across all of the sizes since the small was so big. Would likely work better if you are my height with a bigger bust. The material was very pretty though, which was nice. Slightly less mutlicolored than it appeared online - more of just straight black and gold. Seemed to be more of a youth cut than for a woman. Thankfully a plan B is en route from RTR!

super cute, but EXTREMELY fitted & unfortunately too small on top to wear
short version: although the size was "M" and a normal size for me, it probably would be best suited for someone who wears a 2 or 4 dress size, but with a generous bust (or an amazingly padded strapless bra) to keep it up. long version: i laughed when i tried this dress on, since the zipper (it goes up the side, so that's a big advantage if you're dressing up without an extra pair of hands available to help!) was seriously gaping open. i probably had a good 6 inches of flesh keeping the zipper from closing. the bodice is super tiny. a couple of slimmer co-workers i foisted this dress on could zip up the dress, but the bust area would gape unless one was well-endowed (not too crazy, but anything less than a C cup would risk having a wardrobe malfunction). the dress itself is adorable and super unique, so it's too bad i wasn't able to wear it. a plea for RTR: make this dress available in L and XL, pretty please!
