Beautiful dress that turns heads all night.

The dress was beautiful in person. Some of the sequins didn't quite lay right and I assume it's from being dry cleaned so many times but it didn't take away from the beauty of the dress. I got compliments all night and it fit like a glove. It arrived on time and was easy to send back. I did t find the sequins to be as scratchy as everyone said. It was certainly bearable. All in all its a 10 out of 10, and I would def rent again.

The dress was stunning, lots of compliments!

Dress was tight but fit and because it had little to no give, it held me in better than spanx so I did not where them. My upper body is slightly smaller than lower so straps were somewhat loose so I had to tape them to my bra to keep in place and the dress was a little lower in front that usual. However it was fine. I was able to dance freely and sit and enjoy my party.

Classy and Fun!

This dress is such a winner! I wore it to the Young Patrons of Lincoln Center Fall Gala in NYC. It is elegant and fun. Be warned, it is very fitted. I really, really loved it. It does scratch a bit under your arms, but I didn't care. I'd highly recommend it!

I didn't end up wearing it

Size was perfect, but in order for my cleavage to go where it needed to go, the straps were too long and fell over. I felt and looked like a starlet in it, but I just couldn't make it work.

Sleek as heck.

I ordered a size 0 and 2 and alas, there is no in between size, so if you have a bigger butt, the bigger size is much more breathable and movable. I wore a size 2 and the only issue was the loose top portion, though I have a small bust. It was fairly comfortable most of the night and the tightness of the dress was not overwhelming. The dress is incredible quality and I got so many compliments on the color at homecoming.

I did not end up wearing the dress :(

I initially ordered this dress for my bachelorette party and wasn't exactly pleased with the fit or the comfort. I am a small size 6 so I figured if I ordered a 6, the dress wouldn't be too tight. I was quite wrong. The dress hung from my chest and was so tight that I could barely sit down. Also, the sequins on the hem of the dress were very uncomfortable, as they were scratching against my skin. In order to pull off this dress, you need a very small frame with a very large chest. In other words, you need to look exactly like the model. It's a shame because the dress is stunning, but a very awkward fit.

Stunning!

Fitted dress but very comfortable to wear. The sequins are large and do rub against your arms a bit but wasn't really a big deal. Lots of compliments and felt amazing in it! Would absolutely recommend! Perfect for formal event!

Beautiful color, great length, nice fit.

I rented this dress for a wedding in New Orleans and it was perfect for the location! Beautiful deep red color that sparkles and shines in the sun. I was worried that the length of the dress would be too long but it was just below the knee and looked great on my 5'4'' frame. Straps did not fall all night but the sequins were scrachy around the underarms and definitely got annoying as the night went on. Beautiful color and fit though!

Great Holiday Party Dress

I absolutely loved this dress. The biggest downfall as the other renters have mentioned is that the sequins tore my arms up. But outside of that - I felt amazing and received a ton of compliments - even "Best Dress at the Party."

I rented this for a photo shoot with a model.

I rented this in a 0 with a backup size 2 for a model who is 5'11" size 0-2 regularly. She has a frame very similar to the model pictured and it looked amazing on her! The color is also true to the photograph- a beautiful deep maroon color that reflects kind of purplish in different lighting. The cut of the dress is definitely made for taller girls.

It was a great dress for the Opening Night of Alvin Ailey's season! I got lots of compliments.

The sequins are very scratchy. Watch the undersides of your arms as you walk, you can get scratched by the sequins. The dress also has very little give, so I couldn't move or bend much. It does look beautiful on but I would suggest wearing for a short event, not a long evening.

The dress had a great sparkly merlot color. It was a hit!

The skirt was cut long and fell to my knees (I'm 5'9"). Might be too long on shorter people. It was very snug in the butt and had a lot of room in the chest. I recommend sizing up if you plan to dance or sit for a long time in it,

Sleek and sexy

The dress fit like a glove, it definitely accentuated my hourglass figure. I did feel really slender in the dress, and I got loads of compliments! The reason I gave it 3 stars was the underside of my upper arms were rubbed raw from the sequins that stuck out and scratched me up. We danced a lot at the party, so that probably added to the irritation. It was a very pretty dress, but by the end of the night I was hurting under my armpits pretty bad.

Va Va Voom!

I loved this dress, from the color to the length. The burgundy was beautiful and it flattered my hourglass shape without being over the top. I'm a little shorter, so the length fit more like a midi dress than just below the knee. In my personal opinion, it made it look even better. My only complaint is that the sequins scraped up my left arm and gave me a minor rash on my back by the straps.

Sexy & Classic for NYE

A month before NYE, I was having second thoughts on an Herve I originally rented (I thought it was too plain for NYE in Miami) and came across the only sequined dress RTR had in my size--kinda. I normally wear a size 2, but all that was left was a 0. Though the size notes said it ran big, I was nervous that the midi length would be too long (I'm 5'1") and the dress would be too small (I'm a 32DDD). But I took a chance and rented it anyway, and thankfully it did not disappoint. The dress was snug in all the right places so it hugged and accentuated my curves, while the midi length kept it classy. And the color was the perfect shade, adding a nice bit of vampiness to the ensemble. Since the dress was a tad too long for my height, the bottom was not as tight around my calves as a true midi should be, and after a night of partying the sequins did take a toll on the inside of my arms. I don't think these are deal breakers, but just some things to think about when you rent. As for sizing, I think this dress can run big so be sure to order a size down as a back-up if possible. Overall, fabulous dress. Enjoy!

Wore this to a New Year's Eve wedding - Big hit!

I usually wear a 0/2, but since I don't usually wear bodycon dresses I ordered a 2/4 to be safe and the 2 fit. The sequin dress was perfect for NYE but the midi length and rich color made it classy enough for a wedding. I did see comments about the sequins rubbing against your arms and it is true. My arms were on fire by the end of the night. The straps were a little long too but it was such a cute dress and a big hit you can suffer through both of those problems for one night.

This was for a semi-formal Christmas party in Hollywood.

I'm 5'3", and the dress was a little long (about 2" below my knee). I was able to wear a regular demi-bra underneath with a fair amount of fabric tape and safety pins (there was a fair amount of cleavage!). Overall, the dress was a knock-out and I felt very glamorous.

Glamorous

I wore this for a Roaring 20's party but would rent for a special event. The color was beautiful and the dress was sexy. The sequins were itchy but it was a comfortable dress - very form fitting but stretchy. Received compliments all night.

I felt very sexy!!!! Got a lot of compliments and the dress was a hit!

The dress hugged my figure to the T! It was comfortable in my breast and stomach area and was snug in my hip area. Its sexy but classy and it doesn't need any accessories. I wore it with blue swede shoes and it was a great combination. The only con was that the sequence scratched my arm so I had to keep my clutch under it. Not a huge deal and worth it!

This was a beautiful dress and I received non-stop complaints from people all night long.

This dress is hard to wear, there is no stretch and the straps are a little long. I used hem/fashion tape to shorten it, but it is a beautiful color.

Gorgeous dress, but the straps were a bit long.

The color of this dress is gorgeous in person. It is very form fitting and hugs your curves. I got this as a backup and liked my first choice dress better, so I didn't end up wearing it. The straps were a bit long and felt like they might slide off, and I think the length would be more flattering on someone taller.

Nothing

I was so excited to have this dress for my 40th birthday party addressed arrived on Friday. And I guess it was my fault because I should've tried it on as soon as it arrived. However I waited till Saturday evening to put the dress the one just before I left for my party.I ordered the dress and it ate in the six thinking that the eight was just the option for larger size however I couldn't zip the dress up. It appeared I actually needed a 10 maybe even a 12. I was so disappointed that I didn't have a party dress plus I wasted and lost my money!

Stunning dress, but I'm all cut up from the sequins.

I wore this for a bachelorette party in Vegas. It is one of the most gorgeous dressed I've ever worn, BUT the sequins absolutely tore up my skin (especially on my arm near my armpits)! I still (6 days later) have some scabs on my hands where the sequins cut my skin. Even a friend who put her arm in mine for 2 minutes had cuts. We look like we had a fight with a cat! Despite that, the dress fit perfectly and was the perfect combination of classy & sexy. I would just buy liquid bandaids to apply next time...

I loved this dress. I brought it to wear on a cruise for my friend's 40 birthday. Perfect sparkle!

The reviews said the sizing was big so order a size down, but I did not find that to be the case at all. I normally wear an 8 and the fit was SNUG. I felt poured into the dress, and there was little stretch. I didn't even bother trying on the 6! The night of the event I wore Spanx and the dress fit like a dream. I know some women found the sequins irritating under the arms -- I didn't really notice it. The dress stood up to a night of dancing and birthday celebration and I received many compliments. It's a stunner. Would definitely rent again.

Painful , painful, painful

The dress was beautiful! I was able to wear it w no bra which was a plus! The dress runs true to size! It hold everything well. I loved this dress how it looked. I looked Hott!!!! So many compliments through out the night. Wore it to a club in Vegas for my bachelorette weekend. The dress was beautiful but uncomfortable and painful throughout time. The sequin was very rough! No one wanted to touch me! The dress scratched me everywhere especially on the side of my arms. They were so red n I couldn't do dance n just had to leAve. If u need a dress to wear for dinner n maybe for 2 hours the most this is the dress for u!

Such a hot dress!

As the other girls have described, this dress does provide a little discomfort under the armpits but not too much. I wore it all night long for my bachelorette (from 6pm-4am) and didn't end up with a rash. I found it to be slightly hard to breath, I think a 12 would have fit better because I am pretty hippy. It was a stunner though. And yes, if you do have a smaller chest, the straps may be too long. It fit me perfectly. I paired it with the Kenneth Jay Lane Crystallized Aqua Drops and the Times Arrow Carmine Affine Bag and the turquoise and burgundy paring were perfect!

The color is amazing!

There is some fraying of the sequence at the arm pits, which makes them stick out a little and can be very sharp on your arms. That being said, I still loved the dress. It was bright and sure to be noticed. It was form fitting and long for me, which I like because I'm tall. I had a ball in it.

good, fancy dress

Overall, this dress ran true to size. It was a stunner. The previous reviews are 100% correct; my arms were so cut up from the sequin and I was getting stuck to everyone I took a photo with. The straps did not give me a problem like others, they fit fine- will need a strapless bra for this dress.

Great fit, but not the most comfortable dress.

This dress was perfect for a dinner / dance / concert at a Gold Coast mansion. I'm 5'10", and the length was just right. The 6 was not in great condition, however. It was clearly more worn than the 4, my backup size, which was too small. There is no stretch in this dress and the sequins really REALLY scratched my underarms. Like, to the point where I had to borrow a shawl and tuck it under my arms. But it was beautiful, compliments all around. I skipped a bra since the dress was so structured. I wish I could say I'd rent again but I remember how uncomfortable I was that night!

I wore this to a girlfriend's wedding and loved it!

This dress is definitely form-fitting. I wore mine with out a bra because I'm busty (30F) and it fit perfectly without one. I'm 5'6, 25 in. waist, 135-140 lbs, usually wear between 2-4-6 depending on make and fabric. I also like my clothes to be tighter, so although the 2 and the 4 fit pretty much the same, the 2 fit my waist better. It was a little snugger on the hips, but that wasn't too much of an issue. The sequins did scratch up my underarms a little, but nothing some champagne couldn't fit. Love, recommend.

Sleek, sexy, and fits like a glove.

I can't say enough positive things about this dress. It fit me perfectly. It had such a sleek, sparkly and sophisticated look to it. I wore this for a performance and received compliments all evening for how it looked. I would rent this dress again if I had a cocktail party to go to or a similar event. I am also a bit busty and I felt like it minimized that and smoothed everything out from top to bottom. Loved this dress!

Loved this dress. I got compliments all night long.

The sequins were kind of sharp, so it did rub against your arms. And there was no give in the material. But it was pretty true to size, I went with the size up so there was some give there. Overall I really loved it, people would not stop complimenting me.

Gorgeous Dress!

Ladies the dress run true to size, I ordered a size 8-10, and ended up wearing the 10. The dress does not stretch at all. The material does itch/pinch a little, but nothing that you cannot handle. I wore it with black shoes, and the clutch and the earrings were from RTW too. I received many compliments all night.! This dress is an A++
