This dress is a total show-stopper. I wore it to my senior homecoming, and I got so many compliments. It's different, but not too over the top. There are blue, silver, and gold sequins, which you can't really see here. And, you can MOVE in this dress! Not to mention the fact that the dress must come with some good luck, because somehow I was crowned Homecoming Queen in it :)

I absolutely LOVED this dress and found that it was very flattering! I found that this dress ran true to size. I got so many compliments on this dress. I was a little nervous because some of the reviews had said that it would fit a bigger bust size better, but I thought it flattered my girls very well! (and I am only a 34B) I would definitely rent this dress again!

RTR is my new go-to website when I need something fun to wear! I have a closet full of fancy dresses (76 to be exact) so renting just seems more practical these days! The dresses arrived on the scheduled day and I had no problem shipping them back. Thanks RTR!

I rented this dress for my work holiday party, which was a Hollywood theme. I normally wear a 10, but ordered the 12 as my backup since I know designer sizes run a little small. When the dresses arrived, I tried the 10 first and couldn't zip the back. The zipper seemed a little worn (the only way I could tell the dress had ever been worn before) but with a little help from the hubby, I was able to get it zipped. Once it was on, I realized how much I absolutely loved the fit! This dress almost fit me as well as my wedding dress! The sheer black skirt is actually split in front, revealing the sequined mini dress beneath as you walk. It was stunning! I got compliments all night, from both men and women! I will definitely rent this again!

Love the effect of the semi see-through fabric over sequins. It gives the dress sparkle but isn't over the top.

Perfect for the black tie event I went to. I knew the band was going to be good. I rented a short dress so I'd be able to dance! The dress has a mix of silver, gold and black sequins so it's easy to accessorize. I normally wear a 6 in Badgley Mischka but the 6 in this dress was very tight in the bust area (I'm a 36B). The 8 was a perfect fit.

Everyone loved my dress! I got a bunch of compliments. Most importantly, though, the dress made me feel fantastic!

Size worn: 10

Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a black tie optional New Year's Eve dance on an aircraft carrier. I'm 5'9" and my measurements are 37(Bust)-28(Waist)-39(Hip), and I wear a 34DD bra. I think, *technically*, I'm an 8 (I've recently lost weight, so I'm a little unsure about my "normal" size), but because of my bust I can wear 8-12 depending on the style - the 10 worked out perfectly. I really loved the dress, especially for the occasion! It definitely fit right - though I felt as the night went on, the dress didn't fit as snugly (but this wasn't a huge problem), so there's a little bit of stretch. My biggest problem with the dress was with the sequins along the hem - they rubbed against my legs. I had worn some tights with the dress; between the general wear from the night and the car ride to and from the event there were patches of scratches in my tights about where the sequins were. Overall, I really loved the dress!

I wore this for a fun night out with friends on New Year's Eve. I wear a 6-8, typically a 6 in dresses but this one has a pretty tight bodice under the chiffon so the 8 worked better. Overall, I loved it and received many compliments!

This dress was amazing. Wore it to my senior homecoming, fit like a glove and I didn't have to hike it up all night. I received a ton of compliments! Loved the fact that there were sequins, but they weren't too in your face. And the high to low hemline was to-die-for!! Definitely would recommend this to ANYONE!

I loved getting multiple dresses to try on. I wasn't sure if the 6 would fit. Even though it did, I felt better knowing I had back up. The dress really fit me great and showed off the good parts of my figure. Everyone said I looked stunning, especially when I walked and the glittery part showed through.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress fit great and was super comfortable. Only problem was that it was I little big on top. Not that it didn't fit sort of big, but the material was very thick and bulky. I had to wear a Bombshell bra just to make it look like I had boobs. Great dress but you might need to invest in a bra, or just have larger boobs. Haha.

Where did you get that dress it looks made for you! Actually... I rented it haha!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was the first time I have ever purchased anything online so I was a little apprehensive. I wore the size 4, it was true to its size. My only problem was that the 4 was a little worn down and parts of the dress had come out and were poking and scratching me. So I wore a corset underneath (plus it made my boobs look better!). The 6 did not have the same problems, but I liked the way the 4 fit me better. I also did the mystery jewelry from RTR and they chose those gorgeous earrings which I loved. Overall I was happy. Everyone loved the dress (and shoes but those are mine!) and after putting the corset on I was comfortable in it all night.

I unfortunately did not get to wear this dress out. Due to a mistake, I received the dress the day it needed to be returned. So, I tried on the dress (LOVED IT), but had to send it back within minutes. I thought it fit well and was even prettier in person. I wish I got to wear it for more than ten minutes!

Gorgous dress, but a little big and long. GET A SIZE SMALLER!

Im very petite with a full bust so its hard for things to fit me. This dress looks amazing, and very classy. WARNING if your short, i wouldnt recomend, because it does hit a little longer on me. I sorta tucked it underneath itself and use double sided tape... :( it turned out pretty good, just not really on the comfortable side, so in general buy a size down!!

The style of the dress was nice on me, but not a knockout -- I'm petite and so the pleating on the front bodice was a little droopy. Despite that, this dress is structured and stayed in place all night, even through hours of dancing! There was no tugging on it to keep it up, which was great. I did get poked a little by the boning on one side, but I stuck a blister patch under that spot and didn't feel a thing the rest of the night. I loved the sequins on the underskirt. They are gold, silver, and royal blue, which would have been helpful to know ahead of time, but it wasn't a big deal. Overall I was happy with this dress and I may even rent it again.

This dress was as beautiful in person as I expected. I rented this dress for my birthday party and received a lot of compliments. I wanted the sparkly bodice of the dress to show more, so I taped the sheer black overlay back a little. The fit of the dress was so flattering. It even made me normally small chest look like I had some cleavage. I highly recommend this dress for a special event. I've even looked online to try to buy this dress, but have had no luck in finding it.

I ordered this awesome dress for a wedding. It was my first time using RTR, so i was a bit nervous. I ordered the dress in a 4 and 6...the 4 fit like a glove! It's a good thing too because the 6 had bunching going on because of the sequins pulling on the threads near the bottom. Everyone gave me so many compliments, I felt so great in this dress!

The dress is pretty and hides my stomach, but my bust is too large. When I tried the larger size I had the same problem so if you are smaller then a 34d it may fit. The other con is that the dress is very short.

I rented this dress for my bachelorette party. I went based on the review of other users that were similarly sized who stated that the size 12 fit them perfectly. This was not the case for me. The dress didn't zip up past my waist. The dress is wonderful and would have been perfect had it zipped up.

Gorgeous dress...runs small

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was so pretty and very flattering. It does run small so order a size up as your extra size. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is that the boning was coming through the fabric and the metal would stick into my side when I sat down. But I really loved the dress and would recommend it.
