Not for shorties or smallish boobs

I sent my measurements to a stylist and she sent me two dresses. One was entirely too tight, and this one was too big. The waist was fine, but I'm only a B cup and it was too loose on top, causing the lace across the back to gap. I am 5'4" and the length was wrong, I looked like a kid playing dress up. I also didn't feel the nudish lining came through, the dress just looked plain black, and the kind of pleated look of the skirt didn't hold well during shipping. I had to send it back. I will say it was comfortable, and the sequins and lace were in perfect condition.

Great dress. Elegant, classic and worthy of special occasions.

Wore hair in loose chignon. Used adhesive Braza ; easy to wear. Was a tad scratchy under arms (same as another reviewer) but nothing to not want to wear it. Great details around face. Need just beautiful earrings and bracelets to finite.

Wish I could have worn it

I loved this dress but didn't get to wear it due to a broken zipper. It does run small - I'm usually a size 6 and had to go up to 10 because I couldn't zip it past my ribs.

Slipped the dress on and it fit perfectly!

Wore this dress to the husband's work conference cocktail party and dinner. I received so many compliments on it. It fit perfectly and was very comfortable. The fabric is weighty and hangs well. There's a bit of sparkle in the fabric which makes the dress very festive. I'm 5'7" and the 8 fit me well.

Amazing dress, super flattering!

I wore this dress to a "Boots and Glitz" western themed Christmas party. It went perfect with my favorite cowboy boots and the perfect length to be flattering.

Tight and a tad itchy around the shoulders but incredible twirl and catches the light beautifully.

Beautiful dress. Comfortable nice lines

Chose larger size because the zipper was sticking something fierce. The 12 was only slightly better

Great service! Loved the dress despite it not fitting. It's beautiful and gorgeously detailed.

I can usually wear a size 16 but this was very fitting through the waist and I wasn't able to zip it even with shape wear. I am a little fuller in the middle though! It is a very beautiful dress with amazing detail. I received it new with tags on it.

Gorgeous dress with a beautiful swing to the skirt!

This is a beautiful dress. Fits true to size and had a wonderful silhouette. I wore for a 20s style look with a head piece and had total strangers complimenting me all night. I'm sad to send it back!

Perfect fit and great for dancing

I wore this dress for a Great Gatsby-themed party and I loved it! The bodice fit me like a glove and the flared skirt was perfect for twirling and dancing. The sequins were gorgeous and not scratchy at all. High recommend!

I would have loved it if I was taller!

This dress was sent to me as an alternate style, and I ended up wearing the dress I originally selected. The top of this dress is GORGEOUS. From the waist up, it's so flattering and the detail is beautiful. I'm 5'2, and the skirt hit me just below the knee, which isn't a flattering length for me. I would recommend for taller ladies, but not for shorties like me!

Loved this dress!

I read the reviews and wanted a size up, but it wasn't available, so I still tried the 8. The dress was a little snug at my chest, but that's ok cause they stayed in place. :) The length was perfect. Hit right at my knees. The detail was beautiful and I was getting compliments all night. Very happy with my first RTR experience!

Perfect dress for a work holiday party

This dress was great for an event where you want to keep covered but still look pretty and festive. The underslip is black. The RTR photos make it look nude. I wore a regular bra. It hit me right at the knees (5'8").

Roaring 20s party appropriate

Beautiful dress. The drop waist is elegant and the sequins sparkle but are not overwhelming. As with most designer dresses, I went up one size from normal and it fit perfect. There isn't anything that's overly "wow" about this dress - definitely good for a more conservative event. I wore it for a 20s party and my accessories made it fit for the part.

Gorgeous dress

This dress was absolutely perfect for the 1920s fundraiser I attended. It was comfortable and pretty flattering. The lace has no give, so I sized up to be comfortable. The skirt fit perfectly and the top was a bit loose, but not noticeably. I received tons of complements and felt great.

Beautiful dress, but runs really small

I was sent this dress as a back up when one of the original sizes in my original dress was not available. It is beautiful, but it runs so small. I would definitely size up! I got it to wear to a roaring twenties party and it would have been perfect for that.

This is a perfect, you can't go wrong classy cocktail dress!! For those with boobs (I'm 32DD) it fits wonderfully. Although flattering and fitted, it's is extremely comfortable :) I haven't sent it back yet and honestly thinking about buying it.

Pretty and feminine but still appropriate for a work event. Loved the length but a little snug around the middle (doesn't hide the belly).

Eh

The fit was fine but it looked on unflattering on my figure...my fault perhaps but did not like how it looked like I had a skull imprinted right front and center from the lace...felt more like Halloween which I love but not for this occasion.

Fun 1920s gala dress!

Great looking dress and perfect for a 1920s gala. Only downside was a weird bump in the upper back that wouldn't lie flat no matter what. Other than that, super-comfy and fun!

Perfect for 1920s/flapper costume

Very tight around the arms and chest. Luckily I have a small chest, so that part wasn't too much of an issue (tho I did not wear a bra, and couldn't have if I wanted to). My skin was red and irritated where the sleeves dug into my arms.

Ringing in the New Year...Gatsby Style!

Perfect Gatsby themed dress! Both sizes fit but the zipper on the 4 was a little easier to get up (with assistance). Comfortable to dance in all night and ring in the New Year! #newyears #gatsby

Perfect 1920s dress

My husband and I were going to a Roaring 20s bootleggers party for NYE. I saw that some other women wore this dress for 1920s parties as well. It was perfect! The dress was comfortable and flattering. The only issue was the zipper would catch up in the sequins if you didn't zip it fast enough. It also requires help! Otherwise I loved this dress and would rent it again if I ever attend another 1920s party.

Flattering and glamorous!

This is my first RTR review, that's how happy I was with this dress. It's super flattering without being too revealing. I'm 5"4, but the knee length was still cute and fun given the swirl of the skirt. The faux key- hole chest feature was also cute, and the dropped waist elongated my short torso. Love, love, love.

Very pretty dress but too small

I really liked this dress but it didn't zip over my chest. I believe it runs a bit small. I was unable to wear it.

Beware the Side Boob!

This dress's drop waist is super-flattering. Got it because I'm large-chested and always happier when I can wear a bra, but if you have a big chest, you, too, may fall victim to the dreaded side boob with this one. A bullet-style or uniboob sports bra might alleviate the problem, but since this was my backup, I opted to pass.

Ran a little small in the mid torso. Although I love this designer, I am not a fan of this dress. It was just ok.

Ran too large to wear.

Bought this as a back-up dress for a Great Gastby themed event. Did not end up even being a back-up since it ran very large. It was a gorgeous dress, but it also looks much darker in person so the details are less evident/visible.

This was rented for a formal event that I had to attend for business reasons.

I usually wear a dress size 10, but needed a size 12 in this dress to fit over my chest. I am 5 foot 4 inches, weigh 155 lbs, and wear a 34DDD bra. I was looking for a dress that I could wear my own bra with and this did not disappoint! I did wear a light weight spanx under the dress to take care of any smoothing issues. As other reviewers indicated the dress was a bit "itchy" but nothing that was unbearable. I got lots of compliments on the dress and I felt comfortable and covered.

Beautiful dress, even better customer service!!

The dress seemed to fit a bit snug compared to what dress size I normally wear... Including I've rented that said they run small on Rent the Runway. However, the detail and lace was beautiful! The material was very heavy, in a nice way. The sparkles rubbed my underarms a bit raw, but I didn't notice til the next day and it was worth it. I enjoyed the dress and it allowed plenty of flexibility for dancing. Perfect length! Also, I only rented this because my other dress wasn't available last minute. Customer service was incredible in fixing things!

Gorgeous beading!

This dress is gorgeous and beautifully made. I would have loved to wear it, but it was a bit too "flapper" for the party I was attending and a bit too tight in the hips. The top and waist fit perfectly, but I just wasn't comfortable with the rest.

Really loved the dress and received many compliments all night long!

Great length for someone that is 5'10" like me. I ordered two dresses that appeared to be of similar length. This one actually came to my knee while the other was way too short. The zipper does get hung up on the lace and it does run a little small. Overall great structure and sparkle!

This dress is gorgeous, but was unable to wear it due to fit.

If you are wide chested, make sure you order a size up from your normal size. The waist and hips were perfect, but not the taper cut up top.

Runs a bit small for a 14 - beautiful dress

This was sent to me as a backup as one of my sizes wasn't available. It ended up being a little small for me in the bust and the drop waist didn't work with my hips. I would have loved to wear it though, as it was absolutely gorgeous.

Beautiful dress

Beautiful dress, but runs small at the top. I sized up, so that it would fit. That meant the dress was longer than I would want, but I still received compliments on the dress. If you have C or D bust- size up one size
