I loved this dress! I would buy it. I felt so beautiful in it. Wore it for the opening night of opera season and received compliment after compliment. Wish I had a photo of the whole dress. The gradation between the sequins and the fabric is just beautiful. I wore it without a bra and had no fears of falling out due to the weight of the sequins. However, I'm also not the type of person to worry about it. The earrings were fun but much longer than expected. Also received many compliments on the AV Max Geometric bangle set (not pictured). If you want to stand out in a crowd, wear this dress.

The fit was great. I wore platform heels and it just skimmed the floor which made me gracefully have to hold it as I paraded around

I wore this to the American Country Awards and felt like a celebrity!
Size worn: ML
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is simply amazing, and I would love to own it! It hugs curves in all of the right places, and sparkles any time light hits it. Also, sorry for the weird bathroom pics, my camera got stolen that night :/ Two things, I was very, very happy that I brought hollywood double sided tape with me, because it didn't come with it, as some of the other reviews had mentioned. However, the tape was no match for the dress, and it was an epic wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. I ran down to the concierge at Mandalay Bay holding my dress up (next to Dierks Bentley...awkward) to get two safety pins. Thankfully after pinning up the straps about two inches, it was tight enough that I didn't need the tape. This probably wouldn't be a problem on ladies that are luckier in the bust department! Secondly, I waited too long to order the Braza from RTR, so I had to look for a second option. I got "Bring it up" breast shapers from Target which are kind of like a silicone stick-on, and can be re-used and stayed put all night, through a very long night in Vegas. For the length of the dress, I wore flats because of a pesky ankle injury, and the ML was the perfect length. I literally could not go 50 feet without someone stopping me to compliment me on the dress, the pictures on the site do not do it justice at all. I am so happy I chose to wear this one, and it was mmy back up dress!

The fit is very flattering, I wish it would have been a tighter fit up in the top, and a but longer. All in all I was more than happy, it is such a gorgeous dress!!

I am a D cup and usually mortified by dresses like this. Bittersweet. Don't fret my busty friends! This dress was able to keep our sexy assets classy. It runs a bit tight in the hips, but you'll want to let it hug your hips snug in order to keep the top from fitting loose.

Rent the Runway always has the best customer service. I don't buy any of my own dresses anymore, because I can't wait to wear something new and different for every event!
Size worn: SL
Overall fit: True to Size

This is one smoking hot dress! I echo another reviewer who said it is not for busty gals--I bought a special stick-on bra to wear and had the dress taped down all over the front. Had to make sure I didn't have any wardrobe malfunctions! My fiance was concerned that it was a little too sexy but overall I think he got over it. ;) It has a slight train which was a little annoying at times for walking but overall it was great! Be prepared for lots of looks while you're wearing the dress--but as long as it's taped down, they'll all be good!

The first two dresses I recieved had small issues. The Medium's zipper didn't work, and the Small had some fabric that seemed to be a bit stretched out, but I wasn't sure because I didn't have anything to compare it to. So, RTR sent me both dresses by noon the next day, and the Small fit perfectly, and it was so good to know that hey were there for me, even if it was something that trivial that was wrong with the dress.

This dress was absolutely stunning on. The material is delicate, so the first dress I received had been stretched out a bit on one side, but the fantastic folks at RTR sent me another one by noon the next day and it was PERFECT. It's super sexy, low in the front and the back - NOT for the large chested because there's no way you can wear a bra with this. They only offer the dress in Long, but I'm only 5'5", and wore it with heels and it was perfect. If you want to make an impression, wear this dress.

I've always gotten the perfect dress from RTR
Size worn: LL
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Absolutely loved this dress. I wore it for my prom and got tons of compliments on how unique it was. The dress is a little short, even though I ordered the long and I'm 5'10, but I still choose the wear heels because the bottom of the dress is slightly shorter in the front. Dress fits a little tight throughout the hips. Definitely recommend it!

i wore it to my prom and was deemed "best dressed". very hollywood-esque. soo many compliments.

since i'm 5'11", i ordered this dress in long. it was definitely NOT long though - my ankles prominently showed. i think if you were shorter, there wouldn't be a problem. overall the dress was gorgeous, colors not as bright though. it was pretty tight in the hips, and needed fashion tape on top, but it looked good. would rent again.

I wore this dress for a photoshoot. I'm not the skinniest nor most toned person in the world, and I'm relatively flat-chested so this was a dress I rented more for the experience. This dress looked AWFUL on me. In person it was eh. In photographs the dress itself is gorgeous. I would not rent this again. I had to wear the size up from what I normally would due to availability and it was still tight across my hips while far to big for my chest. I was actually worried about flashing the photographer! Length-wise it was actually kind short on me. The only thing that dragged while barefoot was the train, and that's supposed to drag so by the time I put on heels it was slightly too short in the front.

very sexy, but a difficult fit!
Size worn: ML
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
the dress is very unique and the marbled fabric is as great in person as photographed. However, the chest really is plunging, and bc of how the bust is cut, it was hard even to wear with a stick-on bra bc it sill show on the sides, which means it isn't an ideal dress for someone too small or too large chested. I think you basically have to be a perky B for the neckline to work. Also, I found the hips/butt to run a bit narrow, so not the best dress for someone with a curvier rear, like me. Also- the long is long ,and you need to be more careful about this than normal bc the bottom of the dress is sequined so if you're stepping on the hem, its crunching the sequins. So also not the best dress for dancing. That said- it is stunning, and I'm sure I'd love it on someone with the right body-type-- but I would say I'm pretty proportionate, and it just didn't work on me. But if you're slim-hipped and small (but too small-busted-)- give it a shot, and just be sure to have a back-up dress!

I got so many complements on this dress. It's an eye catcher. Shows more cleavage than I expected but I was prepared thanks to reading other reviews. Double stick tape worked great. I love the delicate fabric and sexy lines.

Cool- but not classy...
Size worn: ML
Overall fit: True to Size

It was just okay... I ended up wearing my first pick for the black tie I went to. This was my backup. I feel this dress is best for someone that's under 25 and a size a or b cup. I got two sizes and actually the larger one fit tighter. Meaning I think the small was worn by someone that should have purchased a large instead. The small was totally stretched out on the sides of the bust. The medium wasn't stretched out like the small was. The length was good. It was actually a little shorter in the front and I could have worn flats with the long.

Yummy dress...I fell in love!
Size worn: SL
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Can I just say that this is the hottest dress that I have ever slipped over my head! I wore it to a wedding and although the outside temp was hot, this dress sizzled. There were so many compliments and "where did you get that dress!" remarks. I defiantly could have used a few more inches since I rented a long and I found that my 4-5" heels wouldn't do. (I settled for 3" gold strappy heels) Also: USE tape, front and sides, or your date will be enjoying the show. It arrived wrinkly, so make sure you have a quality iron to show it some love. Once that happened, it really sparkled. RTR is sure to have my business for a looong time. THANKS<3
