This dress was great, I'm sad I forgot to get a photo of me in it!
When it arrived I was a little concerned, it looked small, but it was like a magic dress, it fit perfectly, and was so lightweight and comfortable. It would be perfect for warmer weather, it was like wearing nothing it was that lightweight. A lot of the beads were loose, which is to be expected I guess, but if I could have bought this dress, I probably would have. It was a little on the shorter side, but I have hips that could comfortably bear triplets, so that could have caused it to be a little shorter.

Such a fun and comfy dress!! There was a con and it's because a lot of beading is missing on one side

Perfect for a 1920's Inspired Fundraiser!
I typically wear a size 14W or 16, but ordered an 18 and 20 in this because I have quite a voluptuous bust and booty, so sheath style dresses are not my best fit. However, since the dress style in the 20's era was more strait and not particularly body hugging, I opted to wear the 20. The dress is actually two pieces... a black slip-like underdress with the woven, beaded overlay being a separate piece. This was another reason I chose the larger size, so it would not rise up at all. There were a few loose beads on this dress, but not really noticeable and it definitely didn't detract from the elegance and beauty. It was PERFECT for our event!

Loved this dress! It was perfect for a 1920s themed trade show!
The dress hugged my curves in the right areas, and I received many compliments on the dress. It's classy and looks great with pearls! I would definitely rent this dress again. True to size and hits above the knee.

Needs repair
I wore the 16 instead of the better fitting 14, because the 14 was too short on me ( and I'm short!). This dress has lost the majority of its beading. RTR should repair, replace, or just stop renting this one out all together. Many hanging threads where beads used to be. Still pretty, and I got compliments, but it does not resemble the photos. Now it looks like a lace dress with some occasional gold sparkle. Really comfy. Outer netting is stretchy. Slip underneath enables a regular bra to be worn.

Great dress for a 1920s theme party
This was a great dress to wear for my company's 1920s themed party. I added a pearl necklace, pearl bracelets, a sequined headband with a feather, and a pair of gold and diamond earrings from RTR. The fit is a little large - I normally wear an 18 and I wore a 16. The 18 fit, too, so it wasn't huge or anything, but I liked the way the size 16 was a little bit more fitted. As far as fit goes, it didn't cling to my stomach too much, which was a plus. When I sat down, it felt a little short, though. Overall, I was pleased with the way it fit and looked.

Fun Sheath Dress
I wore this to a costume party for a roaring 20's theme. With a bunch of flashy jewelry and a headband, it was perfect. My normal size was unavailable, so I went the next size up, and it was a little big on me, so I'd say this dress runs pretty true to size. The dress had some missing/loose beading (it had clearly seen better days), but once it was on, it was not that noticeable. There is a sheer beaded overlay, and a separate opaque black slip underneath. The slip has wide enough straps that you can wear a normal bra (it even has snaps to keep your straps in place). Overall, I would recommend this dress.

I rented this for a cocktail wedding and it was perfect. Compliments all night!
It's glitzy and classy... and isn't dripping in sequins which I love. Just a little sparkle goes a long way I think. The dress is forgiving and I think would suit most body types.. I have a hard time covering up my tummy area but this did the trick and I felt extremely confident all night! The slip fit a little larger than the dress but it was extremely comfortable so I didn't mind. I will definitely rent this again if the need arises. I loved it!

I rented this to chaperone a high school prom with a "Great Gatsby" theme.
The dress is prettier in person-- the beadwork is gold on black and sparkles more than you can see in the website. The beads do come loose easily, and the dress is a black slip with an overlay of the beaded chiffon. It was super comfortable and conservative enough to wear as a teacher around teenagers for the evening. The gold is very flattering in person. I ordered both an 18W and a 20W and the 18 was still a bit on the large side, although the dress is not clingy so it flowed nicely and was flattering.

The dress had just enough sparkle.
Perfect for the occasion. I wore the size I usually wear in dresses, but it was a little large on me, but not so big it was frumpy. Some of the beads were falling off, but it wasn't noticeable to anyone but me.

Rented for my "Roaring out of My 20's" 30th birthday party.
Beautiful dress and very comfortable. It comes in 2 pieces, the black shift and then the beaded over dress. It does run on the larger size, I ended up wearing the smaller of the two sizes and it was still very comfortable. Some of the beading was a bit loose on the dress, but no noticeable tears or anything. This was my first RTR experience and I loved how easy and convenient it all was! Customer Service worked closely with me when the original dress I rented was last minute unavailable to a previous renter's late return. Juliet from RTR was extremely attentive and helped me get another dress that arrived on time. Fabulous customer service!! And so many compliments on this dress. Highly recommend.

Great dress!
This dress fit true to size. I felt like it was a little long for me, even though I am 5'3. It was to my knees. It was perfect for homecoming! Will definitely be renting from RTR again!

Great for a wedding.
So I have a really long back story with this dress, but was very happy with the overall outcome. I ordered the 14W and the 16 W. The 14W was in great condition. The 16W was missing the black dress slip that goes with this dress, and the dress itself looked stretched out, worn, and it was missing beads. I figured, I would try the 14W and if that didn't work, I would call RTR for a replacement dress. The black dress slip was way too tight for comfort, but the actual dress, fit okay. I decided to call RTR to see if they could send me a back up dress just in case. They sent me a replacement dress, which ended up being too small, so I was back to square 1. I looked through my closet and luckily had a very simple, black cotton dress, that I could easily wear under the beaded part of the dress. Throughout the entire process, RTR customer service was excellent and they walked me through everything. After I decided to go with dress 1 (with my own black dress slip) I was very happy and got lots of compliments. Note, it is a shorter dress, so if you wear shaperwear just be aware that you have to have ones that don't go mid-thigh. It is also a lot darker than the model photo. The only reason I did not give this dress a 5 was because the beads were a big issue. I was nervous the whole time they would come off of it easily (as proof of the 16W dress.) The brides sister also accidentally got her bracelet caught on my dress at one point and it was a really difficult task to untangle it. All in all though, this was a really nice dress for this black-tie optional wedding and I got a lot of compliments.

So many people couldn't believe it was me.
I really loved this dress. I wish I had gotten it in the 20w but was quite surprised the 18w fit. The only drawback on this dress is that it hurts to sit on it. I was at a wedding outdoors on hard plastic chairs and the dress left quite an impression on me. I would rent it again in the 20 for comfort sake.

Short and very little shape.
I rented this because it was one of the few dresses I liked when picking from the site that was available in a 14W. I picked it as a backup option, and I am glad my 1st choice worked out because this dress didn't work for me. It had no shape; seemed to run big; and was too short on my 5'9" frame.

Celebrating a Year in Style
I rented this dress for the gold sheen but when I got it, it was a lot darker than I expected - almost black. Unfortunately the smallest size was a 14W which was quite large and not form fitting for me at all (I'm usually a 12) - but I was happy with the dress overall since we went out for a large meal that evening, I had room to move around. The dress is comfortable with curves but I wish they offered a few smaller sizes!

Perfect for wedding guest attire
The dress was very comfortable and I paired it with a three-quarter length black sweater. I really liked it. It's not a form-fitting dress at all and I would say it's quite modest.

Easy, classy, elegant!
I rented this dress for an out of town wedding and had it delivered to where I was staying...one less thing to pack! I rented my usual size and a size down and was surprised that the smaller one fit better! Very comfortable as its not too form fitting...allowed for easy movement. Wedding was in a warm climate and having a more loose fitting dress was much more comfortable in the heat. Bead work was just the right amount of texture without being flashy. I got TONS of compliments!

Cute dress that was very comfortable
I wore this dress for a charity dinner, the slip that came with it was way too long and hung out below the bottom of the dress, so I choose to wear my own. The dress overlay is stretchy and has a lot of give, though with the size I got I didn't need it. It was cute and not overly flashy for my event. I wore a black blazer, tights, and low heels to compensate for the sparkle of the dress. It was comfortable all night.

The dress is 2 pieces, and I ended up wearing the 16 slip and the 14 dress. Very pretty, just the right amount of sparkle. It did have a few pulled treads where the beading was coming off, but not very noticeable. Would rent again .

Very Pretty, Just Not For Me :(
I got this as a back up for the other RTW dress I rented (and ended up wearing). I am a 12/14 normally and I suspected the 14W would be too big and it was. It is actually 2 pieces (a slip and then overlay) - which was interesting and practical. I would have loved to try it in a straight up 12 or 14.

Great comfy dress that got compliments!
This was amazingly comfortable, and the length is perfect for shorter women - at 5'3" it hit a few inches above the knee. I wore this paired with a black elbow length cardigan and it worked well. The dress skims over all the problem areas while still being a flattering shape. Only issue was that it's a well-loved dress obviously because both the dresses (size we think we are/size we hope we are) had a major issue with the beading hanging off. I pulled through with a crochet hook and tied off where I could, but that was time consuming. Would I rent this again? Definitely! Would just inspect it on arrival so I'd have a lot more time for repairs if needed. Five stars even with the beading issues should tell you how much I loved this dress!

I wore this dress to my Roaring 20's themed Bridal Shower.
This dress was in rough shape (several beads were hanging by a thread) and it was huge, but I didn't have a backup plan for my bridal shower so I made it work. It's worth noting that the dress is entirely separate from the sheath/slip underneath. In hindsight, I should have contacted RTR immediately - now I know what to do. I think the dress would have been more flattering if it hadn't been so big. It was modern and yet fit the theme perfectly and it photographed beautifully.

This dress ran huge.
This dress ran a full two sizes two big. I got the 16 because the 14 was unavailable, but a 12 would really have been needed to provide any shape like in the RTR photo. Had it fit, it would be lovely. It's actually a separate slip (black) and over-layer that is more of a knit. And don't be afraid, the slip has some stretch to it. Had it fit, this dress would have been so comfortable to wear, but it was unwearable and I wore my other rental option.

Gorgeous Dress
This is a gorgeous dress. It has a bit of jazz without being overkill. Be forewarned that the style on this is boxy. I have quite a bit of curve which helps. If I had thin gold belt, I would have worn it to give it more shape. I have large hips with a 38/40 DD bust, and a little waist. It does run large. I am an 18 and ended up wearing the 16W, which was even a smidge big, but perfect for a wedding. If you get this dress, don't be afraid if some of the beads fall off....when I initially tried it off I heard beads hitting the hardwood even as I was taking it off the hanger. Still a gorgeous dress with missing beads.

I felt great in this dress. Danced all night.
I ordered sizes 16W & 18W. The 16W fit nicely; however, it was too short for my 5'11" frame so I went with the 18W dress instead. Nice shimmer on the dress; however, some of the beading was a bit loose.

Clingy, short and shoddy beading!!!
The lovely pattern on the model is lost in person, making this dress a clingy and short Monet: looks good from afar, but up close it's far from good. Didn't wear in either size, though the 18 fit better than the 20.

Loved this dress! It was beautiful and I got soo many compliments on it.
This dress is gorgeous and so glam. I wore it to a night time wedding and everyone loved it. It does seem to run a little big, however, I fluctuate between a 14 and 16, and the 14 was unavailable for the weekend I needed it, so I got the 16. The 14 definitely would've been better for me. I ended up not wearing the black slip that came under it because I didn't want to pin that and ruin it, and it was much too big. Instead I just wore a black cami and a black bodycon skirt I already had, and then I pinned back the gold overlay part so it would be more fitted. Overall it's an amazing dress, I'd just suggest sizing down. :)

Blah
This looked like a paper bag on me. A pretty fabric--but the cut is terrible and not flattering. There is no shape. Also--this is heavily beaded and some places the beading was damaged.

Wasn't able to wear it :(
I rented this for a Vegas bachelorette party and was unable to wear it. Dress runs large. I loved the length and the cute cap sleeves but found the overall look too matronly, though perhaps due to the dress being too large.

Felt wonderful in this dress. Perfect for an evening wedding!
I wish this had come in a straight 14. The 14W was a bit on the bigger side but it was very comfortable. I am 4'11" and the dress length was just at the top of my knee. It is two pieces a black slip type garment underneath and then the beaded overlay. Very pretty. Some of the beads were loose but no one would ever know it. It is very dressy and perfect for the wedding I was attending. Loved the cap sleeves. This was my first experience with Rent the Runway and I'm hooked!!

Beautiful and comfortable
I didn't end up wearing this dress. It runs large and the 16 was loose. I did try the belt technique like another RTR reviewer had and it did bring it together. I opted to wear another RTR dress because I didn't have the right belt for the job and there was some loose beading on the 16.
