Belle of the Ball!

I rented this dress for a work function. I must admit I was not thrilled with the dress when I received it BUT I was traveling and I did not bring another dress option so I had to wear this dress. I'm glad that I was the only one who didn't like it. People (men and women) kept telling me how beautiful I looked and said my dress was beautiful. I wore the size 0 dress, but preferred the fit of the size 2 on top (I'm a 32D), but the size 2 straps were not of equal length AND the waist portion was too big. When I received the dress I was not impressed with the material of the dress. However, it must have been just me because of the endless compliments I received. The dress flows nicely and photographs well. trflows nicely and photographs amazingly.

Classic glamour in gold

This is a gorgeous dress - much more gold than in photo. It fit well, I accidentally wore the 6 when I had intended to wear the 8. I didn't realize it until the next morning when I was packing it up. Still worked, the neck is tight and the straps are skinny and a little uncomfortable - but nothing intolerable. The dress was perfect for my event and received a lot of compliments including "you look like old hollywood glamour!"! This is a classy, feminine, elegant dress and fun to wear!

Best dress EVER!!!!

One of the most beautiful dresses I've ever worn. So flattering and elegant. Comfortable but runs small. I had to wear a size up. The fabric is very delicate so you have to be careful not to wear any accessories that can damage it. I wish I owned this gown. I loved it so much!

Amazing amazing amazing

This baby got a lot of compliments and was just the best to dance in. Super subtle gold. The flowy dress was a hit on the dance floor. The only issue was that the neckline is really high and pulls tight thus making it occasionally uncomfortable. If you have sensitive skin or can't handle being pinched a little, rent with caution.

Great dress, tons of compliments

I wore this for my rehearsal dinner and both people I knew and strangers were complementing me all night. I did have to wear the bigger size (4) and the straps were extremely tight... But small price to pay!

So many compliments! Very glam, yet comfortable.

My original dress didn't fit so I had to grab one last minute from the store off 5th Ave. The dress runs true to size so the 12 was quite big (usually I'm a 8/10). Kind of difficult to get on because of the straps.

Fit was good. The straps are quite tight - bothered my neck by the end of the night. Got a ton of compliments - and Marilyn Monroe comparisons. :-)

Twirly, sparkling, and fabulous

I wore this to a Viennese Ball where my boyfriend and I spent 7 hours dancing both waltz and swing for the entirety of that time. This dress was perfect. It was high enough that I wasn't tripping over it trying to dance but long enough that it was formal enough for this very posh event. The light bounced off it wonderfully, making me sparkle across the dance floor, and it had a great twirl to it. Perfect for spinning and dancing. The material was a little sheeny/polyestery on the inside which isn't great if you're getting expecting to get sweaty, but because it's so loose it worked out fine. In terms of sizing, it only needs to fit around your waist so I was able to wear a size smaller than what I might normally wear. I would suggest ordering your normal size and then one size smaller.

I wore this dress for my prom and it was perfect ! The dress fit true to size . The only down falls were the strap were tight so you had to be careful and the gold accents started to pull,

I am 4 months pregnant and it was very comfortable to wear

You need to wear a sticky bra or no bra-- I have a B chest so did not wear a bra and it was fine. I am normally a size 6 or 8 and was nervous about fit because I am 4 months pregnant but the waist seam hit right above where I am showing which made it comfortable. I loved this dress. I am 5"11 and was surprised how long it was on me so be careful if you are shorter and expecting it to hit above the ankles, it might be full length!

Gorgeous vintage style dress! Made me feel like an old Hollywood star!

This dress was absolutely perfect! Fit was great, quality was outstanding, and the overall look was on point. The only comment I would make is that it was a little longer on me than I expected. If you are under 5'6'' just expect this to be more of a floor length dress.

Such a unique style! No one wore anything that even compared. I got lots of compliments from others.

The fabric is so much prettier in person than it appears in the photos. It's a shimmering gold and ivory. The back is also super sexy and the cut of the dress was comfortable and flattering on my extreme hourglass shape. Cons are that I wish it had been just a hair shorter on me and after wearing it for four hours I noticed the straps were causing a little redness around my neck because, like other reviews have mentioned, they are a pretty tight. However, I'd wear the dress a million times over.

Got so many compliments!! Looks great in pictures! Wore to prom and was very comfortable dancing!!

The neck will scratch you which is why I didn't give it five stars. But I hardly noticed it at all! Would have worn the 4 but the neck straps came broken:-( so I had to go with the 6!

I was a dancing machine in this dress and wasn't adjusting or messing with it AT ALL.

The dress was super flattering and looked gorgeous on! I loved it so much. My only complaint is the strap around the neck ran somewhat small and started to bother me by the end of the night. Other than that small detail I was very very happy with this dress.

Great dress, just didn't work out

This dress is much more gold in person than the white in the photo. The metallic threading makes the neck strap a little uncomfortable, but it's not something that would stop me from wearing it. It truly does photograph beautifully, but at decision time I felt the second style I rented was more flattering on in person. So, I didn't end up wearing this dress, but I do recommend it and may rent it again in the future!

Wore for my Rehearsal Dinner!

The dress fit excellent and the gold color was beautiful. The straps around the neck were tight, so if you have a larger bust or ribcage, you may want to go up one size as your back up. I'm usually a 6 but went up to an 8 for the straps. The bottom had a lot of loose threads. I thought I trimmed them all before I left the house but noticed a few throughout the night.

Jazz age bachelorette lawn party

At first I was skeptical as it seemed a little stiff, ran on the smaller side, and I usually don't wear anything sparkly. However, the details were subtle and perfect for the daytime event. I had so much fun dancing in it and received lots of compliments.

AMAZING COLOR

I rented the 8r and the 10r I was contacted by RTR to tell me the 8 was damaged and I received the 10. I had to tape it to my body for it to fit. It was too long before leaving the house I noticed the 10 was damaged as well. It had a rip on the side, Not my best experience renting from RTR. Aside from the dress being on the large size and the rip in the dress, I received so many compliments!!! I loved how the dress looked. If you are ordering this dress it does run large. I probably would have been better off with the 6.

Flashy, classy and fun!

There was only a size 0 left and I was super surprised that I fit into it! It's an empire waist dress and my hips are the larger part on me so that's probably why I was able to fit into it though I normally wear a 4-6. That being said, it was a bit snug but you couldn't really tell ;-) I wore this for a great Gatsby event and it was a hit! The dress is beautiful and the fabric is light so it moves around.

better on the model

first... this is the first time I got an RTR dress with the tags still on... which was lovely to see that it hadn't been dry cleaned within an inch of its life... however, the cross straps felt like they were choking me, and the front pleats pulled oddly around the waist. the waist itself sits at an odd place - not quite empire, not quite natural waist. either way, this dress would look a lot better on a very tall, very thin person - not me, who is 5'4 and a fairly athletic / curvy build.

I did not wear this dress, runs small around the neck, I was going to use this dress for a ballroom dance competition on Sunday but was to tight around the neck for free movement. Beautiful dress though.

Perfect shade of gold. Vintage glam style!

Wore this for a family and wedding party dinner two nights before my wedding. Received many compliments. Subtle sexiness and old hollywood glam! The strings for the back were a little tight so I imagine someone with a bigger chest may find it really uncomfortable.

Everyone complimented this dress! Was such a flattering and fun dress to wear!!

Only problem i had was the size 2 was sewn incorrectly, or something, because it was very uneven on the neckline. The strap is connected to the dress, so you aren't able to shift it. Other than that it was great!

One word... Sophisticated!

Loved, Loved, Loved this dress! I wore the 10R since the bust (36D) and waist were a bit snug with the 8R. The neck line was a little tight but a some adjusting fixed that. I didn't have any trouble with the material snagging as some have noted. It was so flowy and the strapped back & pleats made it even more elegant. The color was gold with a shimmer to it so it made for a gorgeous summer dress for a formal occasion. Rent this dress and you won't regret it, compliments all night!

Best dancing dress ever!!

The straps make it pretty tight so I went up a size thankfully. It also is super difficult to put on...I would suggest making the hole for your head as big as possible. If you have someone to help you, great! If not, I was successful using my bed ha. Got so many compliments and worked well with a "Hollywood Glam" look.

Beauty but uncomfortable.

I fell in love with the silhouette of this dress and was so excited to wear it to a cocktail attire event with a gold theme. The dress arrived and was pleasantly surprised to see its MUCH more gold in person, it looks more cream colored in photo. I had 2 sizes so did not worry about trying on in advance, I just put dress on before event. It fit and flowed so beautifully but the straps cut into my neck so tightly that after just wearing around my house before we left it had made deep red marks around my throat/collarbone area. I tried the size 2 as backup and it was loose around waist but the neck straps did the same thing. It was so uncomfortable I had to pull an old dress out of my closet at the last minute and change :(. If you order this dress, I suggest you definitely get a back up in case you have same issue. Other than that it's stunning, lined and no need for any special undergarments- I was not going to wear a bra with it because it's narrow on sides and low back.

Gorgeous color and it moves so well! The pleats are FAB

LOVED this dress! So comfortable and easy to move around/dance in all night. I'm usually between a size 2 and 4 and the 4 was def the way to go. Given the cut of the top and the low back you you can;t wear a bra which was fine. I recommend adding a fun belt (which I did) to help define the shape. Otherwise it looks a little incomplete. I wish wish I could own this dress. Got a ton of compliments.

very pretty...plan for a tight neck though... other than that great dress

GOOD NEWS - This dress shocking It fits very similar to what is on the model... even though she is probably a size 00 and 5 foot 11. I am normally a size 0-2, 5ft 6, 117-120 lbs. I wore the 2. I felt like I was wearing a tent and it wasn't very pretty but the photos were a different story. This was a great dress if you ignore what you feel like. Take a picture of yourself before you go to your event. You'll know what I'm talking about. Looks great in photos. Glamorous. BAD NEWS - The neck is tight and digs a little bit. Maybe ordering a size up would help relieve the tight neck? I don't have any photos from day of - these are from the next morning. Backless bra optional.

Stunning dress that will get you lots of compliments

This dress is beautiful! I got so many compliments at the party I wore it to. It's really shimmery, which you can't really see in the picture on the model, I'd say it's cream/gold color. It's a very flattering cut but I was a little uncomfortable in the dress because the straps are not adjustable so all night I was pulling down the front part that rested on my neck. Also the back straps are a little scratchy and after dancing all night I have red marks on my shoulders from them rubbing against my skin all night. Over all it's a stunning dress but I don't think I'd rent it again because of how uncomfortable the neck and straps are.

Compliments all night. My friend summed it up best saying "You look like old hollywood glam!"

The dress was not quite what I expected, as other reviewers mentioned it is definitely more gold, and the pleats are more obvious than I anticipated. I didn't initially fall in love with it, but by the end of the night I felt so good in it that I would consider renting it again! I rented the 6 and the 4 and both fit, but as others mentioned the neck can be tight, but the 6 was more comfortable all around (a tiny bit loose but worth it b/c of the looser neckline). I would say it runs just a tiny bit big, but the flow of the dress is forgiving.

Great dress, perfect for dancing

Worn to a corporate gala. Overall, I had a great experience with this dress. I ordered the 2R but once it arrived, the straps on the back were broken, so I had to go with the 4R instead. The bottom of the dress was a little frayed, but not noticeable. The neck is very fitted, but didn't chafe. A great length...it hit me right at the ankles and moved BEAUTIFULLY when I walked. I wore a sticky bra but there was really no need, the top feels very secure. Only annoying part was the hanging straps kept slipping out. Received a ton of compliments, and heard "Best Dressed" more than a few times. Fun, flirty, and versatile!

Everyone said I looked like Marilyn Moneoe.

The dress fit well. The neck was a bit tight and itchy but I barely noticed it once the party started. I received tons of compliments from nearly every person at the party. This was not a dancing occasion but I can only imagine how great this dress would look on a dance floor.

I loved this dress! Felt like I was 10 playing dress up again!

Such a beautiful dress. I was told the neck was adjustable, which it was not. But that was okay. It fit just fine. Small things like itchy on the shoulders but definitely doable considering how pretty it was. My boyfriend of 3 1/2 years proposed to me at dinner that night. It was our Valentine's Day. I'm so happy how beautiful I felt and looked in this dress. Everyone in the restaurant was staring at me the entire night and clapped after the proposal. It was an unforgettable night! Thank you RTR!

A wonderful evening raising money for The American Heart Association!

This dress is beautiful!! It is impossible to describe how stunning this dress really is. I received so many compliments. I wore it to an event for The American Heart Association so I choose to accessorize with a slim red patent leather belt and red shoes. The arm straps are a little awkward to put on (do your hair AFTER you put the dress on), however, they are just fine once they're on. I was afraid the sides of the halter may gap a bit when dancing so I decided to use dress tape to keep the top secure, but I really don't think I needed it, it was just my own paranoia. The dress fit perfectly and I would suggest ordering true to size. If you're considering this dress...GO FOR IT!! This was my first time using Rent The Runway and I loved this dress so much, I cannot wait for my next event...I am hooked on RTR!

Old Hollywood

PROS - I was able to wear it without a bra and the length in the size R was the perfect tea length at my height [6ft]. The color also photographed really well. CONS - This dress was a little tight in the neckline & shoulders. I rented the size 8 & size 10 and opted to wear the size 10 because even though the 8 fit better in the body, the size 10 was a bit more comfortable at the shoulders.
