Perfect dress for the James Bond themed party I rented this dress for!
Fits true to size. Only issue is I had a lot of cuts/scratches on my inner forearms by the end of the night due to the sequins. But LOVE the dress and the color was ahhmazing

I love how quick and easy it was for me to rent and get my dress!
The dress looked great on and I got a lot of compliments on the dress. However, the reviews about the sequins scratching your skin are definitely true! It really was painful especially towards the end of the night. Over all though, it's a fun and beautiful dress. Just remember beauty is pain! ;)

So unique. The mesh cutouts made it fun & sexy, yet the sequins kept it elegant and beautiful.
Wore this dress for a pageant and it was the perfect combo of fun yet elegant. The dress hugs you in all the right places, highlighting your curves, and it flares out perfectly at the bottom. Super flattering in my opinion! Usually a size 4 but I was told the dress runs a bit small so I got a 6L and it fit perfectly.

The dress was absolutely incredible, I felt like a million bucks! I highly recommend!
The sequins are a little rough when your arms touch your sides, but the discomfort is totally worth it. Overall, the dress was very comfortable. I highly recommend!

The dress is amazing! Gives you a true hourglass figure !
The dress fit like a glove. Sexy without being too much. Many compliments that evening and the day after! Only negative is underarm scratches ...reviews were true, be warned it will leave a mark. All in all, I would definitely wear the dress again, pain and all!!!

This dress is the definition of sexy and elegant!
LOVED this dress! It hugged in all the right places. I'm normally a size 2, sometimes need to size down to a zero depending on the dress. This size 2 fit like a glove, and the length was perfect with 3 inch heels. I went bra-less and everything stayed put...no mishaps! This dress showed just enough to be sexy and elegant at the same time. My only complaint is that the sequins can be pinchy so be careful who you're rubbing against! Worn this to a fundraiser formal.

Stunning! Out of a sea of about 350 people, I can truly say everyone's eyes were on me.
This dress is dazzling! Stunning! In one word....amazing. This gown runs small!!! I'm typically a size 4 in most dresses, I was shocked when I received the 4 and the 6 and both didn't fit!!! My event was on Saturday, I realized Thursday night the dress wasn't going to fit. I panicked! I screamed and I may have cried. I called RTR Friday morning to see what they could do. They told me they would have the next size overnighted to me so I would have it in time for my event! 10:00 am the morning of the event the new size arrived and all was well!!! I would recommend ordering the Long. I'm only 5'2 but once you have heels on you want the gown to be long enough to gently sweep across the floor. ***Please be aware that the sequins on this gown are sharp and rough!!!!! My underarm area was literally cut up! I would recommend some sort of clear tape for under your arm area while wearing this gown. ***

The color and fit!
The dress was beautiful! I received many compliments on it all night. The color really makes it standout and the sequin made it shine! Note though that it is a bit tighter around the thighs so it was a bit difficult to walk or bend over. Additionally it does fall a few inches above the floor so you're feet will definitely show. It is a sexy dress, but the black mess tones it done. Would recommend!

Showstopper! The color and sparkle are perfect for a formal winter event. Sexy but still classy.
Beautiful dress, received compliments all night . The mesh inlays give it a sexy feel, but the overall shape and style make it elegant. I agree with other reviews that the sequins rub under your arms, but I got used to it. I'm usually a 4 but the 4 was way too tight. Wore the 6R which was short (I'm 5'8"), but fit much better than the 4. Dress doesn't have much stretch either. No bra required! Overall I loved it!

I felt like a celebrity!
This dress was even more stunning on than in the pictures. It truly fit like a glove. I'm glad I went with the long size, I'm 5'7 and with 3 inch heels it was perfect! The sequins do scratch but that's to be expected and only slightly annoying. I got several compliments on this dress and my husband was blown away :-) I definitely recommend renting this beautiful piece.

Not the best, but did the trick for black tie NYE party
I'm 5'5, 115 lbs, 34A - it more or less fit true to size and the length allowed for a 3 inch heel. Not for a small chested girl - I didn't fill it out. Also a very flat stomach helps, as the dress isn't super forgiving. The color is great, the overall shape is nice. Not my favorite dress, but fun for NYE!

This dress was gorgeous. Even better in person than in the pictures.
Fit was true to size. I wore the 2R and my heels had to be on the short side. My one complaint is that the sequins really scratched up my arms.

Customer service is fabulous!!!
This dress is gorgeous. I got a ton of compliments. It hugged my body nicely. And fit perfectly. Was comfortable. Not too hard to walk in. Fun for dancing ! I'm five foot and wore this with 4 inch heels. Was perfect. Not too long. I wasn't stepping on it. The sequins did scratch my arms though. But only noticed late in the evening. Will do rent the runway again :)

Nonstop complements, felt sexy yet classy!
I wore this dress to a Vegas-themed charity ball, and received compliments all night! I liked that I was still completely covered by a dress but was able to show a little skin and look sexy at the same time. The original dress I ordered had a large tear at the bottom of the zipper right on top of my bottom, but the customer service was great at getting me a replacement size of the same dress so I was still able to wear it. I wore a two regular, which fits snugly but I assumed that was the intended purpose since it is a mermaid style dress. Just don't expect to be dropping it down low on the dance floor. The only downside is that the sequins on the sides rubbed the underside my arms a bit raw, but I kind of expected that. Had a blast in this stunner!

LOVE this dress!
This dress was so cute! I loved the fight around the waist and if hugged in all the right places. Only thing I would say is if you have a larger bust I would recommend taping your chest down if you aren't comfortable with a lot of cleavage. Overall it was amazing!

The dress definitely made a statement... chic and elegant!
The only fit issue was in the chest. The dress was structured for a little larger chest (even having a zero) but just popped in two small pads from a push-up bra and filled it out perfectly. And, I didn't have to worry about sticky boobs. The dress was so perfectly fitted everywhere else that it held the push-up pads in place! I got SO many compliments on the dress. The dress was so #glam, but not over-the-top!

The dress is heavy and very restricting but it looks amazing. It's pretty long and so I had to wear four inch heels.

Elegance and style
Beautiful dress for a formal black tie gala. I felt like a million bucks. My only complaint were the sequins which poked through the mesh part of the dress and irritated me most of the night. I ended up having to leave the party early because I couldn't handle the sequins rubbing against my skin. I contacted RTR the day after and their customer service was amazing. I would not order this dress again but I enjoyed wearing it when I did.

Such a fun dress
This dress is definitely flattering on hour glass figures. The cut outs add a little something to it and help make a good shape. The sequins will rub on the underside if your arms, I had a some discomfort because of this but if you're not dancing all night I don't think it would be a problem.

Beautiful dress in a gorgeous color!
The dress worked well for my works Anniversary party, held in a very upscale & formal wedding venue. The dress was snug around my hips/butt, but I was expecting this cause my thighs/hips/butt are bigger because I workout/weight lift. The neckline was a little uncomfortable and of course the armpit area when I rested my arms by my side. If I could have ordered this in a long I would have, I am 5'7 and had to wear flats because I had 4 inch heels on before and it looked weird. But overall it's a beautiful dress! I got compliments from everyone I talked to!

Perfectly snug dress
Wore for 20's themed ball. Loved that it fit my curves perfectly. My arms got a little of the scratches from the sequins but not terrible. Was a little hard to use the restroom in, especially after dancing! Also shorter than most gowns. Without shoes this hit the ground perfect (I'm 5'4") so this would be a good dress for nice flat sandals. I ended up downsizing the heel height I was going to wear. No one probably even noticed but myself though

Show stopping dress
This dress was perfect for prom, I definitely stood out, no one had a dress like this. I felt like a princess the whole night. Arrived one day before and fit PERFECT! I got so lucky. This dress is a little tight around thighs but a bit of uncomfortableness was worth it. Highly recommend.

Steal the Scene
The gown was snug, but sizing up is also not the answer. I was worried about the seams of the gown down the front thigh area, they seem to have been patched before. I could not wear a bra or undies because of the design of the dress. You may have some other strategies. The dress truly stole the scene for the night and my Beau was ecstatic.

The dress was stunning!
The dress was very fitting... I'm a super skinny girl with a size A bra and small butt however this dress fit just right! The 0 fit perfect but had a rip in it but the 2 still fit but was a little too long but I still made it work and got tons of compliments! I normally could never fit a 2 so keep in mind it is very form fitting!

Happy THIS was the dress immortalized in photos of my engagement!
Rented this dress for a formal event that ended up being the theater for my fiance's proposal! Dress looked fabulous and I happened to think the cut-outs were very flattering. Twirling the skirt on the dance floor was a blast. A challenging, tight fit around the hips and the sequins underneath the armpits chafed when dancing, so it was not the most comfortable dress I've rented. However, I have to admit I forgot all that once he popped the question and for the rest of the night I was happy to be looking radiant and unique!
