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.

Got so many compliments in this dress!
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.

I don't know
I rented this for a rehearsal dinner. It fit fine (snug), but I did have to pull it down constantly. It rode up when I walked and felt a little short because of that. Overall, the dress was just alright. I won't rent it again.

I felt really great wearing this dress!
This dress fit like a glove! It is very unique and made me look amazing for a friend's wedding. I got tons of complements on it. The description provided with it was really helpful when making a decision. Although I would say that in my opinion it runs true to size and does not fit small.

Classic silhouette & loved the pattern!
I really loved the black and gold polka dots. It was just enough glitz and would make this dress perfect for even a NYE cocktail party. I wore a size 0 because some parts of the dress were a bit big. The black belt in the middle was tight and cinched the waist enough to create some curves. However the piece of fabric below the waist was a little larger and would sometimes ride up. Overall it was easy enough to deal with and I loved the colors!

A sparkling, gold creation that lights up the standard LBD
I loved this dress when I first saw it, but there was only a size 4 (even tho' I'm a six), so I went for it. Granted it was a little tight on my tummy, but overall a really beautiful dress for a dinner party -- the Girls' Lounge Shero Dinner. I wore it with a black bra and black heels, though a racerback or strapless bra would probably work better -- as my straps did sneak out a few times.

Great dress! Runs a little bit big in the waist, so I sized down with a 2 and it fit perfectly (I'm normally between a 2 and a 4). Love the print, it's a perfect Holiday dress!

It was so fun and comfortable!
I didn't realize the dress was gold, in other pictures I thought it was beige or nude. I liked the gold though! I also was unaware the back was sheer. Luckily, I own a nude bra. Wearing nude over black makes it a lot less provocative. Loved the dress and got lots of compliments!

Beautiful dress. ABSOLUTELY AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE.
This was my first rental and I am blown away by the customer service of RTR. I love them! The dress is gorgeous. I wish I would keep it. I got size 2 and 4 and 4 fit more comfortably. One thing to note is that there is a bit of stretch in the dress, so either size would have worked. I just preferred going one size up.

Tons of compliments, very flattering!
The dress was a great option for an awards dinner . I am 5'10 (with a 33 inseam) so it was on the short side, but not inappropriate. I wore a nude bra and you could not see it through the mesh back. It also had criss- cross straps so they were not visible either. The dress has some nice stretch to it and was very flattering.

Perfect for formal business event
I wore this dress to a wedding where I was the event decorator/coordinator. It was perfect. The slit in the back is high which made me a little self conscious as I was walking. I kept wiggling the dress down. Worked nicely and felt professional!

Great Party Dress!
This is a great party dress -- feels celebratory and makes you feel great. The colors are great in person -- bright but not loud, really fun. The mesh back and stretch to the fabric makes it tight, but really flattering. I have a curvy bottom and it was very flattering and was true to size.

Great Dress for a Wedding
I thought the picture looked different in color and material than what I received. It is a black dress with gold dots and triangle detail. The fabric was a bit rough but there is a slip underneath so you could not tell. It also runs pretty long, just right over the knee for me. I wore a size 0 but could have even worn a 00 if offered because it had a little more room than I needed with a smaller chest size. Overall, I ended up looking great in the dress and received many compliments. It photographs well and was comfortable and easy to pair with accessories in your closet.

This dress is very flattering and hides flaws
I wore this to a work function (which is why I wore the black shrug rather than bare shoulders). The dress was very comfortable and it looked great even without Spanx underneath. I received compliments from a few complete strangers! This dress is definitely a keeper and I will be renting it again.

comfortable
I normally wear a 4 or 6 in Nicole Miller. I have a small upper body, bigger in the hips. Height: 5'7" and 138 lbs. The 6 wasn't available so I just went with the 4 and it was ideal because as many others said, the material is a bit stretchy. Got compliments all night! Definitely recommend. Fun and a bit sexy-sophisticated, totally work appropriate...

Poor Fit - Sent it Back
My first choice for my event was too big, and at the last minute, RTR saved the day and sent me this as a replacement. Unfortunately, it bunched too much in the waist and was a bit too tight in the hips (for my personal comfort). Overall a bad fit, and the fabric looked and felt cheap on me. have no doubt that this dress will look cute and festive on the right body, but mine certainly wasn't it. Thanks, RTR, for the great customer service!

Ordered this dress for a company holiday party and received so many compliments all night.
I ordered a 0 and a 2, both which fit pretty well. The seam across the waist was very snug with the 0, so I opted to be more comfortable in the 2. The fabric is thick and fits well. It was a bit longer than I would have preferred (almost to my knees), but it gave the dress a nice, conservative look (especially since the rest of the dress was pretty snug and showed off curves). The black and gold color scheme was perfect for a work holiday party.
