Great Dress... Fit like a dream.
It was not tight at all. The sleeves with the sequins did not rub. A nice length just above the knee. Beautiful sparkle!

Pretty but fit kind of odd
I wore this to a holiday cocktail party. The black shift was comfortable but short, the lace and sequin overlay was the part that was kind of odd. It was a good couple inches longer than the shift and since they were two separate pieces, I was always worried that one might be tucked or ruched up somewhere when the other wasn't. The sequins got caught on everything, including themselves, so putting it on and taking it off could be a bit hazardous. It feels like the dress has been worn a lot - the difference in lengths, there was a tiny zipper hook stuck in the arm where it had probably been torn out after being caught previously, the hangar straps were frayed and twisted. It was a pretty dress, but not one I would want to rent again.

This was a very pretty beaded CHARCOAL color dress. It was not "black".
I received many compliments while wearing this dress. I have an apple shape. I could fit my bust easily and zip up all the way. I wish it was a bit more form fitting but I'm sure it has more to do with my body shape than the dress itself. Only "con" I could comment on is the snagging. The outer part of the dress is like a crocheted netting of beads and thread. I was comfortable all night in it because the inner "slip" was not too clingy and gave enough coverage that I didn't feel insecure in it.

Classy, beautiful and comfortable
I wore this to a black tie event and it was perfect. The dress was beautiful with the right amount of sparkle for a special evening out without being over the top. The photo shows it with a greenish tinge - it is a silver/black dress. No green. Paired perfect with patent black pumps. The dress ran a bit big in the arms and body, although I usually wear a regular 14/16, not a W size. I am small busted, so there was definitely room to accommodate a larger busted woman. I am 5'3" and it the dress hit just slightly above the knee.

I wore this to a building opening. I received many complements.
It ran a little large. I'd get two sizes smaller than your usual size. Frequently slipped off my shoulders.

7 months pregnant and felt beautiful for my first wedding anniversary!!
My non-pregnant size is about a 12, ordered a 14 and 16. The 16 was a little big, but comfy so I wore it! Fit my bump great, and was ok with flats! Got a ton of compliments and made me feel awesome :) the sparkle was fantastic!

Stylish, fun, an formal!
I rented this dress for a formal wedding. I saw other reviews mentioning people renting two sizes and wearing the smaller size in the dress and the larger size in the overlay. I ended up doing that, but I could have worn the smaller size in both pieces of the dress. I got tons of compliments and the dress was comfortable! It was perfect for the wedding!

I was 33 weeks pregnant and I didn't want to buy a dress I'd only use once. The dress was comfy!
I ended up using the form fitting part of the dress (size 14) and the shimmery top part of the dress (size 16). Pros, it fit and was stretchy! Cons, the shimmering part of the dress was a bit stiff and uncomfortable. I think it was a bit too long too since I had to wear flats.

Outside wedding in St. Louis in October. Bride wore an orange gown.
It is a great dress. Could have worn either size, but went with the bigger one as it is a tad longer. It sparkled all night! I am usually hot, it was great for a fall wedding outside at night.

I wore this for a New Year's Eve wedding and was happy with the look!
The dress fit slightly large, I could've used a 14W, but it was unavailable. The 16W was fine, it just slipped forward a little due to being a bit too large. I was able to enjoy eating, drinking and dancing with zero discomfort, so the large size worked fine for me. I wore opaque black tights and suede mary jane heels and really liked the look. It was fun and sparkly without being over-the-top. I would definitely wear it again!

Great dress. Received tons of compliments.
Very true to fit - the only surprise was the color. From the photos, it truly looked silver. However, I would have described it as black with silver sequins.

I wore this dress to my company's holiday party. I received a ton of compliments!
I prefer a loser fit so I went with the larger of the two sizes. The overlay I felt went a little long, and didn't line up like is does in the photo. Overall, I didn't have any issues with the sequins rubbing my skin. One thing that could be a little frustrating is that you can't really do anything with the strings that keep the sheath on the hanger as the dress is lace, so they remain somewhat visible and moved around. However, I would still recommend this dress. It has the right amount of sparkle without being tacky.

I felt great in the dress and when I feel great I have a great time!
I loved this dress because it was comfortable/stretchy, sparkly but not flashy, allowed me to wear my favorite bra (a big plus since I have yet to find a "special" bra that gives my full size bust the support it needs). The dress is pretty short which is a plus for me since my best feature is my legs, but wouldn't be a ideal for anyone who doesn't want to show off their legs!

It was the perfect choice for the gala.
It fit great. I did try on the larger size just to see. And I'm glad my original choice worked, because the larger size had a bad smell to it.

Very pretty dress, sparkly and eye-catching. I added a scarf, and va-va-voom!
I got a 14, and it fit, but was a little tight. So I got a 16 as a backup, and decided I would rather the dress be a little looser and go more on the comfort level.

Never one to turn away from something sparkly, this dress added that pop of pizzazz!!
I'm not a huge fan of long dresses, but the length on this was perfect. I'm 5'10" and I was wearing 3 1/2 inch heels, and when standing the dress hit just below mid thigh. The dress is darker in person than it appears in the picture (think dark charcoal as opposed to a medium gray), but still absolutely gorgeous. I got MANY compliments on the dress, and the bride even wanted to know where I got it. I would definitely wear again for another occasion.

Gorgeous dress
This dress was gorgeous - it is NAVY and not black (I wasn't positive when ordering, so FYI) My arms are a bit bigger, so they sleeves were a little tighter than I would prefer. Also, my torso is much longer than my legs so this ended up being very short on me. When I sat, it barely covered my bottom. Had ordered the size up (which is what I usually wear, but reviews said size down) for backup, but it was too baggy in areas.

Nice fit but dull
This style of dress always looks good on me but I ended up not wearing it. The color is very drab in person-- my husband even commented that it was a terrible color. Maybe the right jewelry could have made a big difference.

Looked/Felt Like a Million Bucks!!!
I wore this dress to a cocktail party fundraiser. I wore "off-black" pantyhose and black patent leather pumps with it. The whole look was fabulous! I got so many compliments, even from complete strangers. RTR is going to get a spike in business from people in Scottsdale/Phoenix, I'm sure! The dress runs a little big due to it being a women's (plus) size, and I'm between a 14 and 16 in the regular sizes. I felt so pretty in this dress!!

Easy to get ready when you know you like what you have to wear.
I'm 5'9" 181lbs. I rented a 16W fit was a little loose. I probably could have gone into a 14W. But liked the overall comfort and length was good.

Comfortable glamour for a red carpet awards event...
This dress is 2 separate layers; a black satiny sheath and the sparkly overlay. I actually wore the 18 sheath with the 16 overlay, so I'd recommend choosing your backup size with that in mind. The overlay snagged and rubbed a little under the arms, but overall the dress was comfortable, looked great, and was the perfect blend of glamour and elegance for a black tie event.

I wore this for a friend's wedding and loved it! Dress fit great -- it's a slip and an overlay, which I liked. Nice to have sleeves for an evening out.

Pretty, but unexpected
Unfortunately I could not wear this dress as when I tried it on a noticed an odor in the underarms. While I was disappointed, customer service got back to me quickly. I've never had a problem with a dress before so I am positive this is a one off situation. While I wasn't able to wear it, the dress is very pretty. What I didn't expect is that it is two pieces. There is a black dress underneath and the slivery sequin part goes over it separately - it's very net like. The underneath does not stretch at all, which the sliver sequin part has a bit of stretch to it. I assumed it was one whole piece with and that the sleeves and neck part had sheer material underneath, but that wasn't the case...not a big deal, just something to note.

Sparkly and flattering!
I normally wear a size 14/16 regular (not plus size) jean. Ordered that 14w and 16w. Like a couple others I ended up wearing the inner slip from the size 16W and the outer sparkly dress of the 14W. The 14W slip kept riding up. It was shorter than I expected but not too short - just couldn't really bend over to get things in it. The dress showed wear (snagged sequins) but it was lovely and the arm coverage was just right. The dress got lots of compliments. Its loose in the middle, more of a shift style dress so if that is what you are looking for - go for it. Also I did notice that the last/sparkly pattern was very different on the 14W vs the 16W - both were pretty but the 14W was the dress pictured in the RTR online pic.

This dress looked great on and was VERY comfortable.
I wish I had tried the 12 as well since it ran a little big but really, no complaints. It was stunning and I received tons of compliments. The sequins were nice and not scratchy at all but I did ditch my bracelet for fear of snagging the dress. This was my first rental and it was a great experience. I'm already thinking of reasons why I need to rent again ;-)

This dress was true to size and fit the bill for what I needed!
I wore this dress for my work Gala. As one of the event planners, I needed something that was elegant but versatile and this fit both! I got the 14W and didn't even need to try on the 16W, it fit perfectly. The material was light but the sleeves were a little itchy (but not enough to irritate me). I got a ton of compliments on the dress and would definitely recommend this dress along with Rent the Runway, perfect for any occasion!

It was such a hit! I felt sexy and danced all night!
I rented this for my 40th birthday party. I was complemented all night on the dress. I felt so pretty, so sexy, and was able to dance all night in this dress. I rented the 18W and 16W because I heard it ran a bit big. I am so glad I did that. I ended up wearing the 16W and it was so flattering. I am also very busty, and the fit was perfect. No issues with the sequins being scratchy, but they did get tangled in my hair a bit. Overall, I was SO pleased!

the dress was wonderful
However, Michael said I could get it in black.... so I selected gold jewelry earings to rent.... and I had a gold and black bag. I received the dress in grey !!! I purposely went to the location to try on dresses and Michael told me that it came in black... If I had known I was receiving this in grey I would have selected silver earings and I would have rented a silver bag..... As I did not have time to change accessories I had to wear the gold with the grey dress and I was NOT HAPPY....PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS ....
