Bachelorette party
The fit was great except for in the shoulders was a lil big. I loved this dress def love how it sparkles, was perfect for a night out with the ladies for a bachelorette party. Def love the bow in the back. The only thing is the fabric is kinda heavy so it was a bit hot to wear in August dancing the night away. Overall great dress and I would rent again! Great first time experience with Rent the Runway!

This dress was fun, but I thought it would be tighter in the skirt.
I wore this dress for my birthday, and it looked good but it wasn't my favorite rental. I thought the skirt would be tighter and slightly shorter.

Great, flattering dress
I wore this dress to my work Christmas party when I was 15 weeks pregnant. The style really camouflaged my belly! I would normally wear a 4, but the 6 fit just fine with my increased size (I gained about 8-10lbs in my first trimester).

A gorgeous dress
This was my first RTR and was very pleased. I was the officiant at my best friend's wedding and wanted a dress that was modest but beautiful. I felt glamorous and sophisticated in this dress and was also able to dance! It ran a bit small through the rib cage area so make sure you size up the extra dress. I ordered a backless, strapless bra because of other reviews but it turned out I could wear a regular strapless bra with it. The fabric is nice quality with a hot pink lining and has just enough sparkle.

Wore it for a black tie optional work event - the bit of sparkle made it perfect!
Fit true to size, wore a stick on bra which worked just fine. Nips in perfectly at the waist and is the perfect length for running around while working and for dancing!

Great tailoring for dressy event
This was part of an order that arrived 6 days late ;( I never got to wear it, but took a look for future reference before I sent it back. It was just as pictured and I would have loved it. Just enough sparkle for a holiday party. Too bad I couldn't have worn it :(

Underrated stunner of a dress!
This was my first time using RTR and it was perfect. I rented the 4 and 6 and went with the 6 strictly for comfort... The sizing was very close but the 6 I could breathe (and eat!) better in ;) Worked great w an up do and earrings (thanks RTR for those) but could work just as well with a necklace to jazz it up. Gold shimmer makes this dress fun, but the cut makes it casual, cool and just a touch sexy. Highly recommend it!

Perfect amount of sparkle!
Perfect amount of sparkle for a holiday party! This dress was so comfortable I wore it an entire day and into the wee hours of the morning. Most times I wear spanx to hold in my lower stomach, but didn't even need it with the skirt of this dress being just enough to make me feel comfortable that it wasn't tight. Able to wear a normal bra with this and the back just makes the dress! Got so many compliments and asked where it was from!

Cute dress but not for me!
This is a cute LBD but it just wasn't right for me. I like a heavier fabric and this one was a little light. This dress runs small IMO. I wear a size 8 and the 8 was WAY too small and the 10 fit, but not comfortably. I ended up wearing my back up dress and it was perfect!

Cute, sexy, hugs all the right curves!
I wore this as one of the bridesmaids for a bachelorette weekend and it was perfect. The bow in the back is super cute, and it fit like a glove. It cinched in at the waist, but gave me plenty of room for my oversized booty. I was able to wear a normal bra- the back was not too low, which was perfect. I felt great and looked great!

ADORABLE, fits perfect and super flattering
I didn't end up wearing this dress to my event because it came in late and I was already gone, but tried it on for future reference and I LOVE how this dress fits! I'm not in my favorite shape of my life and it was still so flattering. Perfect for a wedding, holiday event, etc (sparkly but not over the top).

Great fit, too sparkly.
The fit of this dress was perfect for my size/shape. I am a curvier 5'2." The dress had a great sophisticated shape and cut, which definitely made it look like a designer item. However, the amount of sparkle took away from that sophistication. If I were going to wear it again it would be for a holiday event, rather than a fundraiser cocktail party, which was my event.

Great LBD!
Right now I'm in between sizes so the 6 JUST fit me. The 8 was just a little bit big, but probably would've been OK. This dress was cute and flattering and perfect for an evening wedding. The sparkle detail was subtle and added just the right amount of flair. The length came down just above my knees and the top fit well. The skirt had a good amount of room and was comfortable to dance in. Was a little tight getting in and out of the car, but it worked. The bodice was a bit snug on my torso (plenty of room in the stomach) so I would definitely recommend ordering a size up for your backup. Overall a great experience with this dress and RTR!

Didn't wear, event didn't end up being as formal as I had expected.
Would order again for sure! Bought it as a back up for a rehearsal dinner, but it ended up being much more casual of an affair. The only downside I saw was that the seams in the front (that run from the waist to the center of each breast) were a bit pulled so instead of black/silver shimmer all-over, you could see the seam lines that looked like two silver lines running up the front. The size 4 didn't have the same issue, so likely a one-off but not a deal-breaker.

This was a perfect dress for me to go see a Broadway show in. The 4 was tight so I went with the 6.
Fitting and material is not the softest to the touch.

Great dress!
I received a lot of compliments on the dress at my event! Definitely need a big necklace to wear with it. It's very comfortable and very flattering. I wore a strapless bra with it and just pulled the back of it down a little bit with no problems. Would recommend for any season! I wore it in the summer.

Loved this dress!
Rented the dress for a Breakfast at Tiffany's themed bridal shower for my brothers fiancé. I have very broad shoulders and surprisingly the dress fit great throughout the shoulders. It was however tight through the hips. Overall I loved the dress and would rent it again!

Great dress and received tons of compliments!
Loved this dress! The fit is great, and it's very comfortable. It has a slight sparkle, which is so much fun. Even with the low back, I was able to wear a regular strapless bra, I just had to pull it down a little in the back. Definitely fits true to size and has no give or stretch, so order your usual size or one larger.

Beautiful dress, runs a bit too large
This dress is absolutely gorgeous in person and has the perfect amount of sparkle. It just runs a tad large to where I needed to pin it in the back so it wasn't baggy on me. The open back and bow are nice details and I got tons of compliments on this dress.

Cute dress, odd fit
I was so excited to wear this for a wedding. The zero would have fit me great and did everywhere but the bust where it seemed like a previous renter may have stretched it. The dress was a great material, super cute and I wish it would've fit! Not the dress for me but still love this great site!

This dress was gorgeous when it arrived. However, I was unable to wear.
The material has just the right amount of sparkle and the bow in the back is adorable. It doesn't hit at the natural waistline- it is a little lower and the hips are a little more fitted than it would seem from the photo and other reviews. I wish I could have worn but I was definitely in between sizes and it just didn't fit my 5' 10" athletic frame. My experience with resolving the fit issue with RTR was great!

Great experience, wrong dress!
This was my first renting experience and I was very impressed with the customer service. Unfortunately, I was underwhelmed by the dress itself. The dress ran true to size but despite some other reviews I found I could not wear a normal bra without it showing in the back. Also, maybe due to my short stature, I just felt as though the proportions were a little off. The bottom of the dress cut me off in the wrong spot making me look a little fuller. Despite not loving the dress I'll definitely rent again for another occasion!

Cute dress. Too bad the bright pink slip kept showing.
Really upset the bright pink slip kept showing from the bottom of the dress. Tried double sided tape and it didnt stay. Other than that the back of the dress was really cute and it fit my body shape well.

Cute cocktails dress
Unfortunately, I have very petite shoulders and a small rib cage, making the top of the dress very big on me. Luckily I tried the dress on at the store, so I ended up swapping it out for another dress in store. The dress itself was very cute, though. I thought the shiny material of it was adorable and would make it suitable for a black tie optional wedding (which I needed it for). I do have to say though, that it doesn't have the same texture that you see on the model. It's a little brighter and doesn't look quite as sleek. Also, of course since I'm not a model, it hits about 2-3 inches above the knee, not quite as short as seen on the model.

Fit not right
I think you have to have the perfect frame to wear this dress. I ordered a 10 and 12 and tried the 12 fist and it was way too tight on my bust. My sister-in-law was looking for a dress to the same wedding so I had her try the 10 and it looked fine from the front but the open back was too loose.

Back up dress that definitely took center stage!
This dress is adorable. I had it overnighted because the two others I ordered left a lot to be desired and I needed it for a wedding that day! The reviews on this item were great! I probably could have gotten a four as it was slightly loose around the waist, but other than that it was perfect. Super comfortable, could wear a strapless bra without issues, wasn't too short and I could move in it. The waist has a slightly lower drop than I expected, but it was still very flattering. I got tons of compliments on this dress!

Perfect dress for holiday party.
This dress was perfect for our company holiday party. It was a little tight on the top (i'm normally a 4 or 6) but worked well enough. The fabric is beautiful and super shimmery. The bow in the back is so cute! I wore it with a great pair of heels and simple jewelry and it was perfect.

Classy dress with some sexy in the back!
LOVE this dress! Very comfortable and it fit great! Wore this to a very formal evening event and loved the fact that it was conservative in the front and then had the low back for a bit of surprise! I bought the low back bra strap converter that was recommended with it and it was perfect. Great buy and it made it really easy and comfy to wear this dress.

too loose on top, but made it work
I'm small on top, & even with a size 0 I had at least a 1 inch gap on both sides of my torso. I was able to made it fit though by taking a safety pin & folding over the extra material behind the bow. If it weren't for that bow, I wouldn't have been able to make this work. Overall I was a bit underwhelmed by this dress. I think it looks cuter in the picture than in person, & I actually felt older while wearing this. I wore this 3 years ago as my first RTR rental, so I'm sure if I wore this now I'd feel more age-appropriate. But since it was too big in the first place & there's a ton of other dresses I'd pick over this from RTR, I wouldn't rent it again.
