I felt like a Christmas ornament!
I wish I had a photo of this but unfortunately I deleted all the photos of me and the ex in which I wore this dress. I wore this to a lavish Xmas party at the Ritz. I don't mean to be vein but I felt like I was one of the best dressed there. I did my hair in a cute top bun, with the bow and sparkle on the dress I felt like a Christmas ornament. It was so cute! A lot of compliments!

Eye catching but itchy
Would have worn the 8, but it was VERY short! Was also a bit itchy from the sequins however looked amazing so I let it slide!

I have always had success with RTR! Best way to dress and mix it up year after year!
I loved this dress! It was perfect for a black tie holiday party. Runs true to size and good length as I am 5'9".

Very sparkly!
Very pretty dress, super sparkly. I would have liked it to have been a little shorter but I'm quite short. It was difficult to zipper and the sequins get caught on each other if you're not careful.

The sequin gold really made this dress stand out!
Overall I was very happy with this dress. It was a little short, but manageable. However there is a small slit in the center back of the dress (about 2-3 inches) which I was very self conscious of as it came almost right up to my butt. The dress comfortable throughout the night and it was perfect for my boyfriends work party. The dress photographs beautifully. Plenty of compliments. Black shoes accent the bow perfectly! I will warn, if you have curled/hairs prayed hair, you may deal with your hair continually getting caught in the sequins.

Perfect holiday dress!
I could not have asked for a better fitting dress. I wore a 2 and it was form fitting enough to make me feel feminine but also loose enough to stuff my face and not feel self conscious about a food baby showing. I received compliments all night and the dress was surprisingly comfortable given all the sequins. Only downfall is the sequins sometimes get tangled up in each other and pull the dress in directions it should not and it was just a teeny bit short so I had to be careful when sitting down. Would def wear this again!

Festive party dress!
Fit was perfect, but since it was kinda short I paired it with opaque black tights and ankle boots for a office holiday party. I had to use double-sided tape for the bow because it kept falling forward but that was an easy fix. Would definitely rent again.

Awesome customer service!!
Unfortunately I didn't get to wear this dress because it was too small! I ordered the 0 and I couldn't get it to zip up past mid-back. The sequins kept sticking to each other but it was very pretty!

Beautiful dress that will sparkle and shine, but very short/tighter than expected
Loved the gold sequins on this dress, and it photographs really well. It was the perfect color for a wedding that had festivities going from late afternoon through to late night. However, the dress is very tight in the bottom half and very very short. I am usually a 0 but wore a 4 due to the tightness. I tried on a 0, 2, and 4 but think all three were the exact same length, so if you're above 5'3" please be aware it will be very very short on you, especially if you're sitting down a lot for your event. It actually made dancing at the wedding tough. There is also a slit in the back, and the sequins on the fabric get caught on one another, so a few times I stood up from sitting down and the fabric was caught up in the back, almost showing my butt. Probably would be better for a party night than a nice event!

Dress runs a little small and the glitter makes it itchy where your arms meet the dress. It was a really fun dress though! And I felt like a Christmas present. Perfect for a seasonal party or event!

I really loved the dress. It was a lot of fun, perfect for my office Christmas party.
The fit was great. As some reviewers say the sequins do chafe a bit in the underarms, but bearable for night of fun. It is short, but I wore it with tights, so didn't bother me. I had a lot of fun wearing it!

While beautiful on the hanger it was way too scratchy and had zero stretch
Beautiful dress, but not good for anyone with any kind of curves. Was super scratchy and while the 10 fit it was too big in the waist to make any sense to wear. You need to have minimal curves for this dress.

Shining belle of the night!
The dress felt amazing! Watch the bracelet that you wear since it might snag with the dress. The collar and sleeves was simple yet beautiful. The dress photographs well in pictures. The black belt cinches the waist perfectly. Appropriate length. Recommend!!

Great fit and very fun to wear!
Wore for a night wedding. It fit great and I had many compliments. Rented a 0 & 2 and decided on the 2. The 0 was a bit too snug but the 2 was perfect. The sequins were a little itchy around the arms but not bad. Was comfortable all night.

It was just the perfect choice for a Christmas party.
I got a six and it was way too short and skin tight. I am almost always a six. So glad I changed my second size after reading the reviews. The eight was much better.

Longer & Bigger than Expected
Overall this is a very pretty dress - it's much more sparkly in person and I got a lot of compliments. I was disappointed with the fit though. All the reviews I read said that it ran true to size so I ordered my usual size (2) and one size up (4) just in case. The 2 was pretty baggy on me and longer than I thought it would be. I'm sure the 0 would have been amazing.. oh well.

Wore this for Valentine's day last year. Thought it was adorable and so sweet. The bow looked a bit different than on the model but I loved it.

It was great for NYE!
This dress was great for NYE and I got a lot of compliments on it. However, looking back I wish I had ordered a dress that would have complimented my coloring more and would have fit my body type better. It washed me out a bit and I couldn't really fill it out, but I still had fun in it:)

I received a ton of compliments and I felt like I had a truly unique dress!
This review is mostly geared toward smaller girls. I’m 5’ 4” and 95 pounds but I can normally get away with a zero. This dress on me was slightly large. It went all the way down to my knees and was a little too wide as well, but the bust fit perfectly (32B). But as an easy solution I used the tape that came with my rental (and some extra I had as well) to “hem” the sides by half an inch and the bottom by two inches. The tape held all night and my dress looked wonderful! I got so many compliments!

Oscar Night Gold
The dress was perfect for an oscar party - fun and festive. I'm only 5'2'' and the dress was the perfect length - short enough to be cute, but long enough to be able to comfortably sit in. The only problem was that the top was a little baggy - I would have thought for a size 2 that it would have been more fitted.

Very cute fit on, & the sparkles give it a little flair.
Milly tends to run a size or half size large in my experience, but in general size down and you'll be fine.

Order up
I usually wear a 2 and wanted to get the back up size in a 4 but it wasn't available. The size 2 was way too tight and there was no way I could wear it. I bet the 4 would have worked well. Maybe I can rent it again in the future.

Fun dress and got tons of compliments! Runs small
This dress was super fun and perfect for a holiday Christmas party (very festive!) but ran small - and was very short (especially the slit in the back). This dress was out of my comfort zone since its flashy (in a good way) and short, but I wanted something fun and sexy. I did wear black tights under it since I felt like the slit was showing off a little too much of the "under cheeks" and was a little self conscious since it didn't fit like the model (I don't have a super flat stomach) BUT I am so glad I wore it! I had so many compliments all night long and it really was a fun, festive dress. I would totally recommend it but just know that its tight, super short and runs small.

Too short!
I could never have worn this out of the house, even with tights. You could see my butt cheeks. So sad because it's a cute dress. I'm short (5'3") and I can't believe how short this dress was.

Celebrating NYE in style!
I would say this dress runs slightly small. I usually wear a 6 in most things (Gap, BR, etc), but went with the 8 in this dress. Super shiny (more so than in the picture) but a perfect party dress!

I loved this dress. I wore it to a wedding and got so many compliments. I defiantly went a size up because I am busty and tall. It was short on me but I liked that! This dress is super fun and Im so glad I rented it.

Too small in waist
This dress ran very small. The zipper was very cheap and would have a really hard time zipping up, even when the dress has more than enough give. The black strip around the waist is very fitting and snug.

Great dress w/ some downsides
I am 5 feet and normally a dress size 10, and this dress size 12 fit PERFECTLY. I wore it to a Rotary Christmas party and everyone thought it was beautiful, however I would definitely recommend a size larger than what you typically wear because the black waist band is snug. Also, I would suggest an updo becuase the sequins on the dress snags on hair. Overall, I highly recommend this dress for curvy girls, short girls, girls with short hair/updos, and girls with large chests. Perfect for Christmas/NYE parties!

Fun and Flashy but classy
I rented this dress for New Years Eve and it was perfect for the night. It's a lot more sparkly than it looks. I have a small top but wider hips so I had to size up. I would rent it again in a heartbeat.

Cute but too small
I added this dress on to an order so only got it in one size. I am true to size in almost all dresses but the 6 was to tight in the waist and very short. With black tights it looked OK, but the length was really an issue! I ended up not wearing the dress. If I'd had the 8 I probably would have been ok, so size up!

Great Dress!
I loved the dress but it ran small. I usually wear an 8 and should have stuck to the 8 but when reading some of the reviews it was mentioned that it ran a little larger. I am 129lbs and I am a 32DD and it was tight around my chest. It was fine around the hips. Overall the dress looked great and I received lots of compliments!!

Disappointed
I rented this for a chairty event and the slit in the back hit right at my bottom. The slit flipped up so it was too risky to wear. If I would have gotten the larger size it probably would have worked. It's super cute but the gold sequins are a little chintsy.
