Unfortunately this dress was not a good fit for me.

I'm quite high-waisted, and this dress didn't hit in the right spot, so I returned it unworn.

Great detail!

This dress was absolutely stunning in person. I wore it to a benefit for my school and got tons of compliments from the moment I put on the dress. Because of the detail, you don't really need many accessories. I opted for a simple drop pearl earring and patent leather peep toe pumps. Wear with a black bra or backless bra since the mesh is mostly opaque. I am generally a size 8 in dresses, but even the 10 was more snug than I felt comfortable wearing. I was tugging the dress every time I stood up and by the end of the night couldn't wait to unzip. I wish I would've ordered a 12! Would rent again. Very classic and tasteful.

The sparkly polka dots are very subdued!

Dress was fun and classy! Loved the high neck, it fell right above my knee, would have preferred it a little shorter, so if you're taller than me it will look great! If you're planning on dancing the night away this dress is not stretchy!

Classy Cocktail Dress.

The fit is great. I think it would be very flattering on a range of body types. The gold tone is really nice and has a high class feel to it. We were going to a show at a casino and I thought it was perfect for the occasion.

Beautiful and flattering.

The bodice was much too long for my petite frame, several inches too long in the torso. Would be gorgeous on a taller woman.

Such a fun dress!

This dress was so comfortable and fit pretty true to size. Although I went with the 8, the 6 would've worked - just depends on how tight of a fit you want. I got tons of compliments on this dress all night!

Beautiful dress!

I am typically a size four and felt that the dress runs true to size. The dress has a little stretch so it was easy to move around in. There was no give where the black ribbon is and that felt a little tight around my waist. The back is not as sheer as I thought it would be and I was able to wear a black bra with the dress and it looked fine.

Fun style, quirky, unlike what anyone else was wearing.

I would definitely wear a strapless bra with this. The hooks didn't really keep my bra straps hidden. It rode up when walking and sitting, but overall the fit was fun and I felt gorgeous in it. Either size could have worked, but I felt more comfortable in the larger. That belt has no give!

Perfect dress for a December wedding!

The dress was a great design for a December wedding (cocktail attire) - elegant without being too flashy, an appropriate length, and a stunning pattern that received a lot of compliments in person and photographed well. The upper back is opaque mesh, so while it's still appropriate and doesn't feel too revealing, I recommend wearing a sticky bra. The one down side was that it rode up A LOT, so I had to constantly pull it down, especially if I didn't want fabric rolls in the photo.

Fit nicely, had just enough stretch to compliment my body. Back is sheer, so I wore a black bra, and it looked fine. Everyone complimented the dress! I felt gorgeous.

The fit is great but the dress kept bunching up in the waist. Otherwise it is a pretty dress but did not work for me.

Unique dress for Fashion Houston

Rented this dress for a fashion show. First, its important to point out that the main reason I ordered this dress was due to the awesome mesh panels in the back. However, when I received the dress the back was NOT the same (see pic). I was disappointed and contacted RTR customer support. Natasha was very apologetic and promised to look into the situation. I could have chosen another dress but i stuck with it. The material is very thick which hides problem areas but can also bunch up as it did for me at the waist. The top fit as a true size 6 on me but I felt the skirt was a little on the large side. Perhaps this dress is best for pear shapes. You cannot wear a bra with this so I pulled out the tape! Women with larger chests may have an issue with fit. I would look elsewhere next time BUT I will continue to use RTR. Their customer service can't be beat.

Classy and gorgeous dress!

This dress was an amazing pick for my sorority's fall formal! It stood out in a sea of typical dresses. My only issues with the dress was it was a little big in a few spots, but fit pretty well all around. It also has a very high neckline, if you are into that! A great choice for any holiday party!

Being able to skip the mall on a holiday week!

This dress was great, in theory. Some issues once it was on: The material is beautiful, but it has a fair amount of stretch in it, and so I think it would have fit better had I gotten a smaller size. I am usually a size 4, which is what I ordered, but I think tighter fit would have been more flattering...as it was the looser fit of the 4 sometimes made some weird bunching in the middle of the dress. This would also be a better fit on someone with a longer torso--I think I'm pretty average torso-length wise (I'm 5'3), and I found I had to do some temporary adjusting at the shoulder (fabric tape) and still had to keep tugging it down throughout the night. Shorter girls be aware: on the model, the hem seems to hit mid-thigh, on me it hit at just above the knee. Finally, the dress looked pretty good in person, but in photographs the reflective nature of the fabric made for some weird, unflattering photos...especially with flash. The dress itself is beautiful and well made, and I think would be very flattering--on the right body type. Also of note: The dress in the photograph looks like it has a a slit up the see-through back panel, with two small buttons bringing the back panels together in the middle. In reality, the dress just has a full zipper up the back, no button/clasp.

This was my first time renting from Rent the Runway and it was a very enjoyable experience!

The dress kept riding up throughout the night and the zipper kept getting stuck halfway up the dress. The dress was a little longer than I expected, but I still enjoyed wearing it.

Loved this dress but it gets three stars because it was not what is pictured

I rented this as a back up dress for NYE but ended up wearing a different dress. I didn't like this dress for two reasons - 1. the back is completely different than what is pictured - it's just an opaque mesh back with a zipper - not the buttons/open back pictured and it's also much longer. My friend ended up wearing the dress and she is very tall - approx 5' 9" and it was almost knee length on her. We ended up folding the dress under so it would be a little (4 inches) shorter. Otherwise it was a nice dress and the fit was good - it's just a lot more conservative than the photo shown.

A slight touch of sparkle and gold with an incredible silhouette!

The proportions were a little off for my long torso but I loved that it was a little stretchy in the back. The black band and gold fabric around the waist gave me a great silhouette and was very flattering.

Its got a good amount of stretch in it so a great dress to go with if you're nervous about renting. It was super comfy and looked really elegant! So glad it was a band and not belted so it stayed in placed while I danced!

Very unique dress, many compliments!

Hard to get into, impossible to zip without assistance. I wore this with a black sweater over top, black tights, and black booties. I dressed it down for during the day, and when I took the sweater off it managed to transition quite well into evening activities. The neckline is conservative, which is very nice.

Classic, Fun, and Versatile

The fit was true to size. I tried a 2 and a 4. The 2 fit, but was really tight in the rear. The 4 was way more forgiving. I really liked that I could wear a bra with this dress. The fabric is not a print, but is embroidered with gold metallic thread so that it is very shiny. The "belt" is just a piece of fabric and is not an actual belt. I wore this dress to the governors mansion and thought it was very appropriate. It would also be great for a cocktail party. It happened to be warmer that night, but tights looked good with it when I tried them.

Dress fit for a Golden Goddess!

The in person color is gorgeous. Photos to capture the moderately shimmery look of the dress. I work this to my a formal dinner I attended with my daughter, it's very complementary while remaining "mom" appropriate. I'm 5'7" and the dress fell just a few inches shorter than my knees, which was perfect. It was also very comfortable!

Gorgeous dress but the ribbon belt is way to small

I rented this dress for my boyfriends graduation, I am between a 12 and a 14 and was hoping to squeeze into the 12. The actual dress fit it was very flattering and pretty but the ribbon belt is easily 2 sizes smaller! Even though the dress itself fit the belt made it unwearable. I ended up sending it back for another dress, its beautiful just be aware the belt does not come off and runs very small!

Comfortable, easy to move/dance/eat in while looking great!

I am giving this dress four stars only because it was a last minute replacement for a dress that was returned damaged and I didn't think it was as perfect for the events theme (Bollywood). That being said, this dress is very comfortable, easy to wear, photographed well and was a great length for me for a more formal affair then just date night or going out with friends. The back is a mesh fabric (but not so see through that you need to worry about not wearing a normal bra) and creates a sexy silhouette from behind. I am smaller on top and curvier on bottom and the 2 also fit, however, the 4 laid much more nicely around my hips and looked just as flattering. The material is thick, so it keeps its shape. It does slightly ride up after sitting/walking, but not a problem when dancing. Also, the girls at RTR were amazing and on the phone with me last minute sending me available dress options and helping me to search for a replacement. Customer service was amazing. Will definitely rent again - the whole process was great despite not getting the original dress I had planned on!

It's comfortable and stunning! It can go from a dressy day at work to evening wear.

I got this dress as my free birthday dress, and I loved it! My fiancee didn't want me to return it! I ordered the 2 and the 0 as my back up size. There wasn't much of a difference between the two and I could have worn either. I chose the 2 because I was wearing it at work. I work as a TV news anchor and I got several compliments from viewers when I wore it on air.

Odd material, sheer back

I did not love this dress. The fit is nice and people definitely complimented it. But the material is weird and bunches near the seams, which added some bulk to it. The back is also fairly sheer-- you can definitely see a bra through it. It felt inappropriate for the rehearsal dinner I wore it to. I wouldn't rent it again but I didn't hate it-- it just wasn't a favorite.

Sexy without being revealing

Fits very well for all my pear shaped friends! Didn't like the look of it as much out of the box, but it looks great on and it photographs really well too. Has the perfect amount of shimmer and sparkle! Wore it to a small graduation dinner and party and it flowed well into the evening when we went out for drinks and dancing after. Got compliments all night long.

Nice dress for wedding guest.

I rented this dress for a summer wedding at a country club. Initially thought I would wear the size 4, but ended up wearing the size 2. The size 4 was large in the midsection and I wanted something more fitted to my body since the cut of the dress was fairly modest. I am tall (5'9") and it fell a couple inches above my knee. I will say that since I went with the smaller size, it was tight around the neck area, but I got used to that quickly. I discovered in the car from the church that the side of the dress was ripped and there was a hole. It was not very noticeable based on the material of the dress (it looked shredded, but when I was sitting down, you could see a hole). It was at the seam, so I held my purse at my side if I felt that I was standing in a place where someone might notice the hole. I was pretty upset by this since I had not noticed until I had already left for the event. Other than that, the dress arrived a few days prior and was easy to walk, sit, dance, etc. for the wedding.

Parent appropriate and fashion forward

I rented this dress for a family party. It was great for the occasion, totally family appropriate with a semi-sheer back. I did expect it to be a bit more figure flattering with the belt in the waist, and found it was a bit more conservative than I normally go for. Overall a pretty dress, but I probably wouldn't rent it again.

Flattering fit and subtle sparkles. Great for busty, curvy figures.
