Cute & Sparkly!

I have a large butt, the lower section of the dress is pretty tight through my rear. The top is cute, just be sure you have the correct under garment. I wore a push-up bra to fill out the top. The sequins under my arms was a bit scratchy. I wore this for a Prohibition Cocktail Party and it was perfect for the occasion.

Great for a 20's costume party!

Fit was just right, and more modest than I expected. :) I was alarmed seeing boobs everywhere in the photos on this site, but as a small chested woman I had nothing to fear. Pretty comfortable, and definitely unique!!

A Gatsby Birthday

This was my back up dress for my Gatsby birthday. I didn't wear this dress - but it deserves an honorable mention. First, the color is more gold/beige than pink. I actually preferred this - but if you're looking for a very pink sparkly dress - you may be disappointed. This fit snug thru the hips - but that's always kind of my problem. If you have a more athletic build or are slender you will find this sits looser. However, the empire waist and v/neckline make the silhouette flattering on all types. My 5'8, DD, leggy friend ended up wearing it instead and she killed it!

I wore this dress for a NYE party! It was so fun!

The fit on the bottom is tigher if you a larger black end!

Felt like a glamorous dress.

I wore this dress to fun NYE party in Hollywood, it was fitting for occasion. I was afraid it would look to princess and cheesy, it exceeded my expectations.

Bachelorette in Vegas!

I loved wearing this dress for a night out in Vegas! I'm not a huge fan of white dresses so the blush color of this dress was perfect! I probably wouldn't rent this for a more conservative event as I have a large chest and there was a LOT of cleavage! The sparkles made the dress so much fun and the texture on the bottom of the skirt was so flattering! Perfect dress for a night out in Vegas!

Beautiful dress, I felt so beautiful! Stands out in the crowd

Beautiful dress, flattering for a bigger chest, but not so flattering if you have a bigger bottom. The ruffles tend to add to the volume on the bottom. Overall, it was stunning and I got tons of compliments!

Wore this to a 1920's themed work Christmas party, received so many compliments on it! The color was very pretty, paired it with some Jessica Simpson nude patent leather heels. RTR never disappoints!!:)

Loved celebrating one of my friends upcoming nuptuals in style with this dress!

This was a fabulous dress to wear when you are trying to look glamourous! I wore it for a bachelorette party themed night that was "old hollywood glamour" and got so many compliments on it. The dress runs a little big in the bust, but my bust is very small anyway. Great dress that really gets you noticed!

Great for Different Body Type

This was a very pretty dress and exactly what I wanted to wear for NYE, but the cut of the skirt is not flattering for smaller waist and fuller hips. The ruffles do not lay well and is over all not appealing. I can, however, imagine that this dress would work very well on someone with less curves. Pretty and fun. Just not right for me. Also... You CAN NOT wear your hair down!! It will get tangled in the sequins.

Beautiful!

I loved this dress but the sizing was a little off, a 4 was too long in my bust/torso area, and the 2 was too tight. But the dress was gorgeous

It made my night ! Noone else had this dress and I got tons of complements!

I couldn't wear it with heels( my date isn't tall) but it would have looked amazing in heels ! Also the sash really makes the outfit but I took it off to dance in because it didn't stay tied all that well .. It was a tad itchy under the arms but it fit amazing !

Firs time renting. got two sizes. one was too small and one was too big. made me look big.

Both the sizes i got were not flattering. The right size was too big in the bust and the smaller size was right in the bust but too small in the waist. the bottom of the material flared out and made me look fat.

Such a fun flirty dress! Definitely a showstopper and I received many compliments!

I wore the dress with a sticky bra and overall it was very comfortable to wear. I usually wear a size 6 ,but I wore a 4, however the top was a little large while the skirt runs small with little stretch but it worked for my apple shaped body!

Stunning.

I was a little apprehensive when I first tried on the garment because the deep v in the front was a bit more revealing than I tend to go, however with the hollywood tape that came with it, the dress stayed in place all night and I had no mishaps. Other than that it was a show stopper, I don't think I've ever received so many compliments.

Very cute!

The size 2 fit me better than the 4, but showed a little more cleavage than I would have liked. I tried using the fashion tape that came with the dress but it didn't help. Very cute dress, though!

Not the dress for petite women

So I ordered the zero in this dress and it fit like a 2/4 normally would on me. Im 5'2'' and this dress was an inch or two above my knees, and it was just big around the lower body. But the real issue was the top, its very low cut.... like 3 inches above my naval. I tried tape and it looked okay but it was just too big and was not flattering. So I opted out and went out and bought a dress for nye. So my best recommendation is if you are petite and usually always wear a zero that this might not be the dress for you.

I got so many complements on this dress! I wore it to a casino for a birthday party

Fit small through hips and was short but very large through top, I am a 36 D-DD and I had extra room. Thank god for double stick tape.

My birthday celebration was at Lips in NYC (a drag queen cabaret restaurant) and felt the dress was more appropriate for wedding guest dress. I will definitely order from Rent the Runway in the future.

Beautiful Dress for 1920s party

I love this dress. It's quite short and low cut but fitted really well. I managed to wear a bra underneath and used a little fashion tape just to make sure the bra wouldn't show. Really pleased and would recommend

Horrible Fit

Rented this for a 20's event, the top on the 6 was just right but the skirt was so short I could not move without my rear hanging out, the 8 fit a little better (but still way too short for my rear) but the top was huge. Did not wear this dress, would not recommend it.

Really disappointed in this one.

I rented this for a new years eve party. It arrived with the belt missing and I was expecting the top half of the dress to be silver, not gold. The bottom half of this fit fine but the top was so big. I am a 36C and I wore a plunging deep V push up bra and still couldn't fill it out enough for the fabric not to flop around. My bra kept showing and I was pulling at the top all night trying to keep everything in place. Double sided tape might have helped but I didn't have any on hand. I wouldn't have worn this out at all if I had had time to go get another dress. RTR customer service was great though!

This dress fit SO perfectly! I absolutely loved it for the Magic Castle dinner party we had! It's hugged my curves in all the right places and I feel it flattered my petite, hourglass, busty body!

What a fantastic dress, so many compliments and my husband LOVED IT!

I normally wear an 8 especially in the bust and this one ran big, even the 6 was still kinda big on top. I had to use a good amount of Hollywood tape. But that said this dress is a show stopper. I wore it for our first date as Mr and Mrs out in Chicago. I had 2 women at Pops and 2 more at Processco stop me with compliments. I can't wait to have an event where I can wear this dress again!

Pretty dress, but didn't fit my body well

Wore this for a 1920s party. It was perfect in terms of style, but my small shoulders and small bust meant that the top gaped quite a bit. I used some fashion tape, and that helped a bit, but made the dress pucker a bit. Though I'm usually a 2, I wore the 4 because the 2 was just way too short. The 4 still was pretty short on me, though I do have longer legs and a short torso. Still really pretty, though.

This dress is gorgeous, BUT, it is extremely low cut. I am typically a size 0 but I couldn't even wear the 0. It was slightly large and the deep V in the front was nearly 2 inches below my bust. I don't mind showing cleavage, but wearing this would've been showing EVERYTHING I've got. (However, if you do rent it, it looks good with patent leather, nude, peep toe platform heels and the Rachel Lee earrings shown with it.) :-)

Be center of attention!

I rented this dress for a wedding and really sparkled and shined. The color is beautiful and the sequins look classy, not tacky. It's pretty low cut in the front, so if you're busty like me be prepared to show a little cleavage!

A chic way to sparkle!

I hover between a 4 and 6 in dress sizes and I wish I had gotten the size 4! The ruffly skirt of the dress definitely accentuates your waist more so than it shows in the photo of the model, so if you have wider hips, be wary. I ended up actually clipping the back neck of the dress together too so it gave more support to my chest. It wasn't the most slimming, but I got compliments on how tasteful the sequins were designed.

Wouldn't order it again

I am definitely more top heavy, but this dress just did not work for me. I wanted low cut, but in order for my bra to not be completely exposed I would have needed to do some serious pinning. I kind of suspected this when ordering the dress (and unfortunately my normal size 6 wasn't available), but it was difficult to fix and I ended up going with my back-up dress.

The compliments! Super fun dress!

This was my first time using Rent the Runway. I had a bachelorette party and wanted a fun dress. I did a lot of searching on this site and finally looked at this dress again. It isn't one that I would typically buy, but liked that it was different. I received a LOT of compliments at the bar about the dress and really loved it. I have a larger chest and had to go with a bigger size. You'll love this dress too!

I could take a fashion risk without spending a ton of money!

This dress makes you feel like a celebrity ready for a red carpet event. It's flashy, girly, fun but still classy. It's a really well made dress that is not cheap looking at all. I wore a regular bra with it. My only complaint is as a tall girl it is really short. It's not a dress that you can bend over in if you are over 5'9". It also helps if you have a larger chest to fill out the deep v! All in all, it is a great dress but not for women who are tall and lean.

Not for busty girls

This dress made my lower tummy look HUGE. I don't have much of a lower tummy (maybe a tiny little pouch that most girls have) and this dress accentuated that so much! Also, the top portion is LOW! To the point where I was going to be offensive if I wore it to the wedding. I ended up sending the order back. I really wanted to love this dress, and it was really cute in person, it's just an odd fit and too low cut for my chest. Something to keep in mind.
