This dress is very fun, but should come with a warning--there are very high slits on the side of the dress that are a little scandolous. I wore it with black tights to take attention away from the high slits. Probably not the best choice for someone with longer legs, it was short on me and I am only 5'3".

This dress was fun to wear! I wore a thin, black skirt slip and tights underneath so the high slits on the sides of the dress were not an issue.

i agree w/ other reviews, not a good dress if u're curvy or have hips. i could've worn the small, but due to the slits on the side (which hit nearly to the hip bone) had to opt for the medium so that i wasn't flashing everyone.

Thanks for sharing your feedback! We have updated our fit notes to show that this dress is very short, so curvy or tall women should size up for length.

a super super cute dress but the slits were just a dealbreaker for me. the weather was too warm for a black tights solution and going bare-legged would have been offensive in this dress. too bad. it would have been a real winner otherwise.

LOVE this dress. I'm thin and tall with some hips (like a 0 up top, size 4 hips) so I love flowy sheaths like this. I wore a size 4 so it was loose around my hips, like the model. The dress looks even better in person- a nice change from the usual black or blue sequin dresses. The slits on the side didn't bother me too much, I wore dark black tights and danced like a maniac all night.

This dress was awesome! Sexy (from side slits and short length-mid thigh), but not screaming sexy with it's sack-like shape.I had so many compliments. I wore it to an event with the dress attire labeled as "cocktail formal"...there are small slits on the sides of the dress, but it was fine as it was dark at the event and we were standing the whole time. I went bare legs and strapy black heels.

Loved this dress! About 10 people came up to me and told me how gorgeous the dress was. Very flattering. I have broad shoulders, so it made me look a little frumpy up top, but not horribly so. Would rent it again!

I got tons of compliments on this dress. I wore it for my 30th birthday - not too dressy, not too casual with lots of tasteful bling! I wore black leggings and high heels with the dress - there was no way you could wear this with bare lags. The dress is more of a shirt dress and the slits on the sides would reveal too much. I wore a belt with it too to cinch in the waist and that made the dress a lot more flattering on me. All around a great rent!

LOVED!
LOVED this dress. I wore it for my 30th birthday party and received too many complements to count. The dress is fun, flirty and has a flapper vibe to it. It fits a little loose (as it's supposed to). From reading other reviews, I was worried that the side slits would be too revealing but there is a flap of black silk fabric that covers them so I didn't feel uncomfortable at all. I would HIGHLY recommend this dress. You'll look fab and it photographs really well.

I loved showing off the dazzling sequins on the dance floor!
I rented this dress for the Navy Ball in college and it was a hit! It was a little big baggier than expected and the cap sleeves didn't accentuate the best part of my arms, but I through on a belt and everyone loved the sequins.

Please see review
This dress is amazing!!! I got so many compliments on it and people at Sleep No More thought I was part of the cast! Paired it with a fun fascinator! See photo. Dress fit is loose so I recommend going on size down. It's super comfortable and the purple tinge is unique.

Loose, boxy sequined dress that is utterly glamourous, sexy and sophisticated!
I added this dress to my order at the last minute - I love RTR and the customer service is the absolute best!!! Thank you to RTR customer service!!! This dress is pure glamour, understated sex appeal and sophistication! Now, I am a body-conscious dress kind of girl, and when I first tried on the dress I was disappointed - the dress does fit like a sequined boxy, loose rectangle. However, when I paired it with black platform heels, large double-hoop dangly gold earrings - WOW! The dress swayed seductively all night - and makes you actually look smaller (because the dress is so loose - who knows what size you are underneath?) I normally wear a 6 in dresses and wore the M. I got compliments all night! I can't believe I love this sequined "potato sack", as another reviewer put it, but I do! I will probably rent this one again! About the color - looked brown to me, but in certain light looks plum-ish.

Old school glamour with a modern twist!
This dress was absolutely gorgeous, by far one of my favorites! The color is more of an ox blood color in person and has tiny gold beads among the sequins and while the fit is looser, it hugs the body in all of the right places. I rented an XS and a S and the XS ended up fitting best. The only thing I would note is that for someone on the taller side (I'm only 5'2"), the slits on either side come up pretty high. I loved that this dress is sexy, yet not too revealing which made it perfect for the event that I went to which was on the conservative side. The event was a Gatsby theme party and I received so many compliments! One of my friends that I went with thought the dress looked so great that she told me I should look for it online to buy it. Overall, I am super pleased with the dress and would definitely rent it again.

I wore this to a New Years Eve themed party.Very stylish and flattering! I got so many compliments!
I think sometimes sequins can look tacky but not on this dress! I selected true to size but I would say depending on your built it might run a little large. I rented a medium and it fit me but I think I might have been able to get away with a size small. Depends on how loose you want it to fit.

So comfortable! Easy to dress up or down.
I rented a S and M. The weird thing was that the M seemed shorter and a little tighter. I wore the S. you can't tell in the picture but there are slits on both sides of the dress. Keep that in mind because it's already pretty short. For the accessory, I chose "surprise bling" and they sent a nice necklace. Got a lot of compliments!

New Year's Eve Spectacular
At 5'3", 112 lbs, 32D I am often in between a small and XS. When I wear the XS I wonder what do really thing girls wear? The shape is not fitted but drapes in a flattering way. After reading other reviews I was concerned about the side slits - they are somewhat high so I made sure my tights were no-line. I loved this so much I want to rent it again for this NYE but we'll be in Miami where no tights are needed and this dress needs tights. In this dress, you get attention when you walk in the room - va-va-voom.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

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!

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.
