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.

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.

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.

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!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

The texture of the fabric was too thick for the ruching and made the dress less flattering than it could have been. The fabric also had had a weird feel to it. I would say that this dress would work much better for a girl under 23 that wants classic lines but with some modern details e.g. the ruching and barely noticeable zig zag pattern of the fabric.

dress was great but it did fall down a little at the bust. runs slightly large but because it's super stretchy, you could probably where a size up or down and it look pretty much the same. great little party dress. cute, fun and simple.

LOVE the gold shimmer in this dress! Made for a perfect winter function dress!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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 really liked this dress a lot, and everybody at the party loved it too. I was really hoping that it would give me some like cleavage as well because of the cut, but it really didn't. haha i know some reviews are saying it did that for them, but not me. that's okay it was still a showstopper for sure.

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.

Not great, so I returned it to RTR

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
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?

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

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

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!

Amazing customer service - had this dress shipped to me overnight after my first pick was a no.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I actually received this dress as a back up because my original pick did not work. When I got it, I was very surprised. Pictures don't do it justice but the gold speckles throughout make the dress sparkle. It also is very sturdy, with boning in the top part of the dress. Runs true to size, but a size down would probably work too because the material is stretchy. Great to dress up or down!

I got so many compliments!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Would not recommend.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Vacation
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!!!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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

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.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size

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!

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.

Sexy and short, great gold hue of sparkle

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for my girlfriends bachelorette party. The ruched fabric is form fitting and didn't give my narrow waist the best curves, but the neck line was sexy and fun. The boning inside kinda dug at my rib cage on one side which at times was uncomfortable but overall the material is thick and forgiving even after a long night on the town. A normal strapless bra and any kind of underwear would work just fine. I got lots of complements. Wouldn't rent again but glad I got it for this occasion!

Size worn: 2

Fit was true to size, but the top portion is a little looser. It stayed up throughout the night but definitely was not snug. Dress was warm and nice material. Was very short but didn't move upward, so it was fine. Fun for the night out!

Sexy fun dress and great fit!! Beautiful thick material for winter, with gold specs that shimmer.

Size worn: 0
Rented for: Wedding
The dress had a great fit, I took advantage of the timing and wore the size 2 on Thanksgiving with black tights and boots and a cute black sweater for dinner with the family, and then wore the 0 for the wedding. Got compliments at both events. The only issue I had was that the 0 had one of the cup wires sticking out and digging into me. Other than that everything was perfect. The material is good for colder temps, very thick, but very pretty with gold specs that shimmer throughout.
