Fun and so comfortable for dancing!
Wore this for a roaring 20s themed work party. I felt comfortable the whole night dancing and loved the subtle sparkle! Went with a large since it was the only size available but it ended up being perfect since the style drapes so nicely.

Unflattering fit, not my style
I rented this dress for a great gatsby themed party and it was not flattering or very attractive in person. It didn't work for me so I returned it.

Fun Dress!
This dress fit well but didn't flatter me as much as I would have liked, It seems to be more snug in the mid section than I thought it would be, and the cut of the sleeves was less flattering than I anticipated. That being said, it was still a great dress and I enjoyed wearing it. I suspect someone taller and less hourglass-y would enjoy it more.

I wore this dress for New Year's. It was a perfect dress for the occasion. It was loose, but still formal enough. I received compliments all night.

Loved this sparkly dress for a Christmas party!
The sides were super short but with solid black tights the high slits less are noticeable. Overall the dress was comfortable and fun! Tons of compliments!

Loved it!
I loved this dress. Ultimately, I went with a different dress only because this one was too fancy for the occasion, but the next cocktail party I go to, I'm ordering this one again. I was skeptical about how shapeless it looked on the hanger, but it looked great on. I'm barely 5'0, and it was even short on me, but that's what made it fun. It was light and comfortable. I felt great in it.

21st Birthday!
It was a little snug around my hips, but I did wear a small. I might have been able to wear a medium, but it was out of stock for the day of my party. I think it's important to know that the sequins on this dress are not black. They are more of a plum, reddish, maroonish color. It personally wasn't a problem for me, but just so people know! I thought this dress was way fun and yes, the slits on the side come up pretty high. But I had the best 21st in it!

Great dress - needed belt
I rented this dress for a halloween date night/party, and it worked perfectly for a flapper costume. The dress is a little short even for my height (5' 3"). It was fine for taking pictures, but I had to be careful when getting in and out of cabs. It is pretty boxy and definitely needed to be belted. The dress also seems less red/wine-colored in person.

TINY
I rented this dress for my sister's bachelorette party in Vegas. The only size available was XS, when a S or even a M would have been a bit more appropriate. I wore it anyway (hey, it's Vegas after all!) and was careful when sitting since it has slits on both sides. If it's not 100º outside, I'd recommend wearing tights with this dress...

Attending a friends wedding with my husband
The dress fit great! I would usually wear a small but I was pregnant and wanted a little more tummy room so I wore the medium. I had to buy tights that were even in color all the way through cuz the dress was so short and the slits on the side would have shown the thigh line that are on the tights/nylons. I didn't mind the short length, I thought it was fun, but if you are conservative & plan on sitting down a lot at your event, it shrinks up very high on the thigh. Overall I loved the dress and got lots of compliments on it!

I wore this for my 29th birthday party which was 20's/Great Gatsby themed
The dress was very comfortable, although it is short. Since I am fairly petite, it wasn't an issue for me, however the slits on the side are definitely a bit scandalous! We were in poor lighting all night so I don't have a clear photo to put up, but the dress was outstanding. Fun, flirty and comfortable... It wasn't itchy and the sequins never snagged which was a plus. Loved it and it was perfect for the party.

Sassy comfort
After reading reviews, I made sure to order my regular size (S) and one size down (XS). While the XS fit well, the side slits were high and I was afraid of showing a little cheek. Plus, the smaller size was more fitted and didn't allow for the fun swing that I was hoping for. I stuck with the size S and loved it! I wore this to a Roaring 20's theme fundraiser event and received so many compliments! Plus, I felt fancy and comfortable all night long.

This dress was perfect for the roaring 20's party I attended but it was just too short. I could barely sit in it. It was a little itchy too. Interesting color - like a brownish/redish color.

Color is gorgeous, show stopper!
The slits on the side are extremely short. It didn't allow any reaching, no jumping, just a tiny bit of dancing. When I sat down for dinner the slit came all the way up to my panties. Literally. With that being said I'm 5'7'' and an XS so that's probably one reason it was so short on me. However the color, the fit, I loved everything about this dress. I even had a stranger comment on how its a perfect mix of sexy and class.

The dress fit great, but it was WAY too short to be considered a dress. I couldn't wear it and had to go with my backup dress instead.

I rented this dress to go to a Bastille Day party at the French Embassy
The reviews are correct. The slit up the side goes REALLY far up. Like, if you slightly lean to one side, sit down, or put your hand on your hip your panties will show. I am only 5'3" so I thought I would be OK, but no. I couldn't wear the dress. It would be very cute with leggings in the winter and I will probably rent it then.

Speakeasy fun, even for an hourglass shape
An enjoyable dress to wear. I got several compliments at my friends' engagement party wearing this dress with black textured stockings and several long layer necklaces like in the RTR picture. I'm an hourglass figure and this dress is not cut to show off my shape, which meant it was not a popular pick with my husband, but the spangles were fun and perfect for a "speakeasy" theme. Definitely cut for a more lean and leggy figure, but still fun & flattering to a petite hourglass.

WAAAY too short...
Very cute, but even at 5'2" I couldn't pull off this dress as a dress (maybe a tunic with leggings?). The slits on the sides made the dress impossible to wear without either adding fabric under them or wearing boy shorts underneath (which I tried, and which looked ridiculous, so didn't wear it). For a super short (sub 5'0"), super slim (no curves in butt at all) the length might be ok...too bad because it's a great color!!

Super cute! Very nicely detailed and comfortable dress!
I ordered this dress as a backup since my first choice sequins dress 2nd size wasn't available just in case the size I requested didn't fit. Other than that! I tried it on and absolutely loved it! super comfy not constricting, length is perfect for my height. I was going to a themed bachelorette and preferred we wore lighter colors is the only reason I didn't wear it. I would've preferred to!

I loved the dress when I put it on, It felt really made well, great quality and comfortable.
The fit is loose around the arm (so if you are self conscious about your arms, maybe think twice). I am, but I ended up liking all of my pictures. I am pear shaped and short it does not show off any curves, but I liked that. It was a very eclectic wedding and it fit the mood. I went crazy with the jewelry and didn't feel it took away. I got a lot of compliments. **One thing, the slit on the thigh, if you put your hand on your hip, it hikes clear up your side! (see picture 2) I had to crop it out! Overall it was different and I liked that.

Unwearable.
The dress was very pretty- deep purple round sequins. The fit was the problem. It fit fine up top, not too small, not too big. BUT the dress is INCREDIBLY short. I had read the reviews and expected it to be short- but seriously, this dress did not come past my butt. Very disappointed. I have a long torso, so that is possibly why it was unwearbly short on me. If this is a problem for you, get a different dress!

Gorgeous dress, too small
I ordered this as a backup when my original dress didn't fit. Unfortunately, it was for NYE and there weren't many sizes available so I had to order an XS. I'm almost always a size 2 or small in dresses, however the RTR specialist said this dress ran big so I should be fine. I was able to put it on, but it was just barely loose around the hips and completely lost the shift dress look. I sent this back and wore a backup dress that I thankfully bought the day before.

Perfect Date Party dress!
Wore this to a sorority date party and got so many compliments! Perfect shift dress! Love the sequence and got so many compliments. For all you tall girls -- be careful -- I'm 5'7" and this dress was SO short on me that I had to wear black nylons that didn't have the control top because you could see it -- that dress is super hot but also super short! Loved it though

It fit nice, but SHORT. I am only 5'4 and there is no way I could have worn it without tights!
Sorry I dont have a great full body shot of the dress. There are slits on the side which makes the dress shorter when on than it looks in photos. It was fun to wear for a party. The inside liner is a bit tight so if you have hips and a booty, you might have to size up. For example, I could have fit the small, but the tightness of the liner made me have to size up to a medium. The dress definitely is more plum than black as it can look black in some of the photos.

Holy Moly this dress is short!
Adorable dress- swingy and cute and great deep color. But it is SHORT. Like, here's my name address and zip code short. Like a shetland pony would be looking UP your skirt short. Like, guests at your event might wonder whether you are married to your husband or charging by the hour short. It is the side slits that really take it from arguably saucy to arguably inappropriate. I ended up sticking them closed with a mixture of fashion tape and band aids on the inside, which worked for 3/4 of the evening. Oops. Would not wear again.

Fun and slinky
I actually did not end up wearing this dress for the 20s party I rented it for- I wore the other one I rented. However, it's a great dress and very slinky and hits all the right places. I rented a medium and got a back up large. I would have worn the large- as the medium was a little too snug on my hips. There was a big difference between the two sizes- and the large actually was a little too big but the way the dress hangs, it actually would have still been a great option to rock!

Size sent to me was too small :(
I really wanted to wear this on my 40th birthday. It was a replacement for something I ordered that was suddenly not available so the stylist sent me this in an XS. Unfortunately it was too small for me. I am a basic 4 (5.4" 125 lbs, 34 B) and this was too small. I thought I was getting the S. Regardless it was a beautiful dress and i wish I could have made it work but had I tried it would have been an X-Rated night :) Regardless...RTR customer service was wonderful and I will def rent again! Maybe for my wedding in Sept!

Many compliments from fellow sorority sisters!! Loved the loose fit I was able to dance in!
The fit runs true to size! I usually wear a large and that is what I wore in this dress! I did get a medium for the backup size, and it could have fit but the large fit better all over and made me feel more comfortabel!! Great dress! And will order again from this designer!

Great dress, just way too short
They did not have the S available, but since the dress is not fitted and looked boxy, went with XS, but it was so short. The side slits came up to my underwear and you could not wear sheer hose with it, even black sheer. It looked more like a top than a dress. Did not work for what I needed it for.

Amazing Surprise!
I would of never picked this dress out online but I saw it when I went to the Showroom in NYC. It is such a cute and fun dress. The slits on the side are very high but I am short and got away wearing it without tights. It does run a little big, I could of taken in the back slightly but it didn't really matter. It still looked great on!

Okay, but not a fave.
I rented this dress as a back-up for NYE and thought I should change into it between dinner and drinks. I paired it with black tights and black leather closed toe shoes but I must not have the curves because the size S was unflattering. The dress doesn't hug the shape of your body at all which made it look like you were wearing a long rectangular dress. Maybe if the waist was cinched or I had thought to bring a belt, it would have saved the look, but I decided to stay in the Nanette Lepore Joan of Arc Mini to ring in the New Year.

Beautiful dress but runs small if you're tall!
This dress is gorgeous, but not a good fit if you're tall like me. The dress was not flattering at all. It hugged my curves in all the wrong places, mostly because it was too short. Not even leggings could have saved it, I just would have been uncomfortable dancing in it. It was a last minute rental for a concert in NYC so there was no back-up sizing available. Returning it for a fit & credit with RTR was a breeze, and I kind of expected it would have been too good to be true if the dress (size small was all that was available) were to fit. But it was too gorgeous to not try! I love RTR and look forward to my next rental for the holidays.
