This dress is tight fitting on the bottom, but runs a little loose/big on the top. I am 5'2" and it landed right above my knees. The material is on the heavy side, not a summer dress. Overall the dress looks very nice one, but was not the right fit for me.

To be honest, I was a little afraid when I saw this dress on the hanger. My fears were all for naught however as this dress looks amazing on. The neckline plunges slightly and the material fits to your body like a glove. Beautiful dress, I got so many compliments.

Loved this dress, very pretty. Would rent it again. Maybe a size smaller so it is more fitting. May feel slightly short because the material tends to rise.

This is a great dress for a night out - not a semi formal event though, the material and color are very 'club-esque'. The fit is fabulous though and I received a lot of compliments!

I have rented now several times and I've always felt beautiful for my events. The customer service reps and fit specialists do an amazing job of making sure you get the right dress (in the right size) for every occasion
I rented this as my backup NYE dress and ended up wearing it to steal the show. It's comfortable even though it's very form fitting. It worked really well with my small bust (and actually made it look like I had something up there). In person, the dress looks almost like it's woven with gold...although in some photographs it just looks like a well fitted lbd. I usually opt for dresses with more color but this was a perfect choice!

The return was very simple; however, this dress would not fit into a mailbox because it was so bulky!
I wore this dress for New Year's Eve. The material is much different than I imagined - very sweater-like and flecked with gold pieces. It pairs well with gold. The dress was also much lower than I imagined. You will definitely need Hollywood Fashion cups with the dress. The bodice is fitted and very flattering. I am 5'2" and the dress hit me perfectly above the knee.

Dress is Okay-
I ordered this dress as my back up NYE dress. Although the fit was great, I felt like it didn't have that WOW factor I wanted. The top of the dress rides a little high and the material of the dress makes you appear slightly larger than you really are. Also, I am 5'2" so the bottom of the dress rested much lower (like below my knees). I did like the dress and would consider wearing it to one of the many evening weddings I have to attend this year. However, I went with a gorgeous Tibi frock instead.

cute dress
i rented this in a 12 and it was too big. i haven't worn a 10 in years but, in this dress, it would've fit perfectly. the material is super stretchy which is nice but the top was too big (and i'm a 38D). i love the dress but next time i'll definitely go down a size.

Big and baggy
I got this dress for my birthday but the fit was very large and baggy. I am 5'5' 130 and usually wear a 4 or a 6. The 4 in this dress was too big. The sweatheart neck was too low and the dress looked a little frumpy becasue of all the ruching/gathering. I'm glad my back up dress (Herve Leger Uncontrollable) was a perfect fit.

Classy Lassy
Super cute dress! Unfortunately RTR had run out of the smaller size of this dress, which I didn't think would be a problem. In the end I either lost weight unexpectedly or the dress ran large. It was a bit loose in the bust and i highly suggest getting some wicked fashion tape to keep everything in place.

Very comfortable dress, has gold specks and clings in all of the "right" places. Would work better probably with a slightly larger bust than what I have.

Sexy and Comfy at the same time!
I rented this dress for a night out in Vegas. It was form fitting with just the right amount of sparkle. The neckline dips tastefully low, which feels sexy without being uncomfortable. Length of the skirt was not too short. I was very comfortable in this dress and had a great time!

This was a forgettable rental - I'd advise another choice.
While the fabric and style of the dress's bodice was flattering, the cut of the sweetheart neckline was very terrible for both sizes that I tried. Not a successful rental.

The dress arrived on time and looked gorgeous.
I usually wear a 2 or 4 and ordered this dress in both sizes. The 4 was way too loose in the top, so I wore the 2 (even though I preferred the length on the 4). I could have probably gotten away with a 0 since the top of the 2 was also a bit loose. I wore it to a family function with black tights & ankle boots and a long, gray, open cardigan and it looked great.

Truly sparkled and stood out among the crowd
Rent the Runway made my sorority formal a care-free, fabulous, and stunning affair. I ordered my dress Wednesday, and it was delivered (as promised), a day later. The dress is a little heavy, but it is true to size, and flatters your curves and chest, especially. I got tons of compliments!! I would absolutely rent this one again! Thanks RTR!

LOVE the gold shimmer in this dress! Made for a perfect winter function dress!
The dress is snug but it was very comfortable! The rouching was very flattering to my figure and I felt great in it! Only problem is I don't have a very blessed chest, and the dress didn't seem to fit as well in that part, so definitely would say you need a little something more for this dress to be perfect!

I wore this dress for my 21st birthday, and of course looked the best!
This dress surprised me with how gold it is in person, but it was a good surprise...it would be a perfect dress for New Years. The ruching on the sides are extreme flattering, along with the sweetheart neckline.

Great to dress up or down.
I rent this dress for a Christmas party. Everyone loved it! It is a thicker material so it was nice to wear it in the winter. Everyone complimented on the dress. I got 2 sizes and ended up going with the smaller one since the fabric is very stretchy, and it helped hold it up better.

A great LBD for NYE!
The dress fit well; however, I thought the sweetheart neckline was too low for my taste. Loved the material and it had just the right amount of gold for NYE!

Not great, so I returned it to RTR
It is a really weird material that the picture doesn't show well. It is a very heavy material that the rouching adds inches to your waist. I was not blown away by this dress and had wished I got something with a more "wow" affect so I returned it. The bust area fits really weird and isn't particularly flaterring.

Unflattering fit, returned it.
Not a fan of this dress. 5 out of 6 dresses I have rented from RTR I have worn and loved but not this one. The fabric is thick and there is too much so it bunches up. Also, the sweetheart neckline is not cut well and it swallowed my frame. Maybe be better for taller girls?

Pretty, comfortable fabric!
The details weren't really visible in the pictures on the website but when I got it I was pleased. Very pretty gold woven into the black. Comfortable, and I was very surprised when it stayed up! I usually have trouble with strapless dresses but this one wasn't annoying and I didn't constantly have to pull up on it. Overall, very good (: I wore this to a dance and I had a great time in it!

Not for me
I typically wear a size 8 or 10 so I ordered both sizes. The 10 fit too large and the fabric was very bulky and not flattering. The 8 fit perfectly in the body but was too small around the bust. The dress also had a structured bust with corset-like supports those dug into my skin if I was sitting, I was unable to wear this dress and was not happy with it.

It's a beautiful dress but I ended up not wearing it and wore something of my own instead.
The 4 actually fit my body perfectly but not my upper back. I work out a lot and have a slight V back which meant needing to go up a size for the back which made the dress slightly looser in the bust. I ultimately ended up wearing a dress of my own for this event. Rent the Runway had great customer service though. When I received the 4 and realized it would not fit, they overnighted me the 6 at no additional cost to me except $9.95 for shipping. That really eased my mind and was an outstanding example of great customer support. If you rent this dress and you are athletic, I would go up a size for the back. I will definitely use Rent the Runway again in the future.

The Perfect Little Black Dress!
I rented this dress for my sorority's Semi-Formal and it was the perfect fit for the occasion. I normally wear a 6 but I ended up wearing the size 4. It is incredibly flattering and definitely accentuates the best areas of your figure!

Fantastic dress for winter events the fabric was comfortable and kept me very warm.
The dress was adorable, but a bit large in the bust. However fit great everywhere else. Great for informal events, but can certainly be dressed up.

I got so many compliments!
This dress is beautiful! The fabric is really nice and the gold sparkles are much more noticeable in person than in the picture. I wore it to my sorority's semi formal and I got so many compliments! I'm normally a a 4 or 6 but since it was fitted I ordered the 6 and then followed the suggestion of the RTR stylist I spoke with and got an 8 as my backup size. I ended up wearing the 8 because even though I'm only 5'4" my hourglass figure sometimes makes dresses and skirts look too short in the back, so I wore the 8 more for length but then it ended up being a bit big on top. It wasn't too bad and as long as I paid attention I didn't have any wardrobe malfunctions! Overall, even though it wasn't a perfect fit I was very pleased with the dress and had a lot of fun wearing it.

This dress fit really well, but the fabric is quite bulky and in my option added about 5 lbs, which was not ideal for feeling sexy.

Would not recommend.
I did not end up wearing this and ended up wearing something I already owned. I'm pretty small around the rib cage and this was too loose on top. I, technically, could have worn it probably. But it wasn't flattering. It was also a lot golder than I thought it would be. My husband thought it looked like a sweater.

I felt like a QUEEN!!!
I wore this dress as part of my Nefertiti Halloween costume, and it was a slam dunk! The fabric is thick and the deep v neckline made it different from the other run-of-the-mill strapless dresses I saw. The ruching laid beautifully over my curves, and the only con was that I had to pull up the top a few times throughout the night. That small detail aside, I would definitely rent this dress gain!

gold shimmer!!
wore this little number for a weekend in Vegas! I went with the 4 because the 6 was slightly baggy on my waist. I recommend sizing down one as your backup pros: this dress has some give and is more gold simmer than the pictured on the model. I did not wear a bra as the boning construction of the dress held everything up and in. cons: a little on the short side but hey its Vegas

Received the "Wow...just wow" text :)
I wore this dress for New Years Eve and it is a perfect party dress. I would have gone a size up in order to put a plunge strapless under it (rented size 2 as my backup, should have rented 6). Must be comfortable rockin' your cleavage. No issues dancing, sitting at dinner, etc. Definitely a dress you'll attract attention in. Sweetheart dip is very unique.

This dress fit like a glove. It was perfect for a night out in Atlantic City!
This dress had the perfect gold shimmer that I accentuated with gold and black jewelry. The sweetheart neckline was very sexy but I did have to pull it up throughout the night. I am normally a size 6/8 and the 8 was perfect. I'm glad the 8 fit because I was accidentally sent a size 2 instead of a 6 as my backup! It was the perfect dress for our night out in Atlantic City and I would definitely recommend!

I got the dress for an all black party for my birthday and nobody had on the same dress so it worked
It fit well. The dress really accentuates the right curves. I have a large chest and didn't need a bra but a smaller chest wouldn't fill out the top and would probably need an assistant like an add 2 cup padded bra. The material was stretchy but it was rough against the skin, the only down side in my opinion.

The sweetheart neckline is ultra-flattering and the top actually stays up!
