Great Gatsby Inspired

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for a Great Gatsby themed birthday party after one of the stylist suggested it. Let's just say, it was probably the best rental I've ever done! The beading was in great condition and was a bit baggy but was perfect for the theme!

This dress was the cat's meow for a 1920s-themed dinner party I hosted. I got compliments all night! The only downside is that it was a bit tight and more than a bit itchy.

I originally intended on wearing the medium but it was unavailable at the last minute and I had to wear the small but it worked very well. It was only tight around my hips but since the material is so stretchy it worked out fine.

Renting this dress with RTR put the "easy" in Speak Easy.

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for a Roaring twenties Speak Easy that I threw about a year ago. It worked so perfectly! It had a fun weight for dancing and everyone complimented it! Definitely stood out in comparison to the other flapper dresses! Only reason i'm knocking it down a star is because of the racerback on the dress, and that's only a personal preference. As always, RTR was delightful to work with and I'm looking forward to renting for another event in the future!

This was for a Gatsby party for NYE

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered in a small also but the small was out of stock. They sent me the only size available which was a large but since it was a Gatsby party and 1920's fashion was worn baggy it worked. It also was pinned on the side taking it in a little for me. Medium would have worked better for my size (5'5, 125 lbs) but the LG worked fine because its meant to be baggy and the dress looked amazing. I paired it with the 1920's house of harlow snake clutch. Loved it. See pics

Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress to my Great Gatsby-themed sorority formal! I was so surprised when I opened it and saw how amazing and intricate the beading is, and what great quality the dress is. I added some pearls and a headband to complete the 1920s look, and I got so many compliments! The dress was very comfortable, although a little heavy because of all the detail. My only complaint is that there were some beads missing, but you couldn't really tell.

Overall fit: True to Size

I absolutely loved wearing this dress and enjoyed all of the compliments I received. I wore it to an event where everyone was to wear black so this one was really a stand-out. The dress held up during the party and the after-party (both of which included a lot of dancing!) and remained comfortable the whole time. I'm a little curvier on bottom so I can see how this dress might be better for straighter figures. However, it still worked for me and I'd definitely rent again!

Memorable dress + easy fit = Great 20's Party!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Rented this dress for a Gatsby-themed party. Was concerned about the fit and was waffling between sizes. Others said that it fit tight in hips and thighs. I usually wear a 6 and am bigger in the butt and hips but the medium fit without any issue. I likely could have gone with a small for a more "fitted" look but the dress really isn't meant to be worn that way. Hit about 6 inches above the knee. You can wear a strapless bra. The beading was in surprisingly good condition. Had many compliments and may have turned one or two girls on to RTR because of this rental. Great choice for a stand out dress with a relaxed fit.

Overall fit: True to Size

I took my mother to a Great Gatsby themed costume party downtown as a Mother's Day gift. I loved the dress! It was perfect. We were the best dressed group there and were awarded the best dressed at the party! I felt great in the dress. It was very forgiving and flowed well. It fit true to size for me and normally I struggle with a larger chest. The only downfalls of the dress was the weight. It was very heavy and the beads caught on things throughout the night. But it was NOT a huge deal. I would DEFINITLY rent this dress again! It was gorgeous and I felt amazing all night! THANKS RENT THE RUNWAY! You guys really made my night.

Perfect for my roaring 20s party!

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
As soon as I took this dress out of the box I knew it was perfect — the rich feel of the intricate beading and swingy, playful design were exactly what I wanted. I usually wear a medium, but I'm glad that I also ordered the large because the medium was a little snug in the hips. At first I was worried about wearing a bra with the racerback neckline, but I wore a convertible bra with the straps crossed in the back and it worked great. I am sold on Rent the Runway!

Sassy + comfortable = perfect party dress!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I was attending a work holiday party with a 20's theme and I wanted something fun that wasn't a standard flapper dress. The cut of the dress plus all the beading was PERFECT! I ordered the small and the medium. I preferred the length of the medium but was too big so it didn't hang right. I opted for the small, which was a bit short, but it was still doable. I wore it with black fishnets and danced all night! It was incredibly comfortable AND my dress was totally different than the rest, which was fun as well.

Perfect Gatsby Gala Dress!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Renting this dress was a fortuitous accident and it worked out perfectly! I'd been searching for the ideal dress to wear to a Great Gatsby-themed fundraising gala I'd helped coordinate over several months. My original choice was the Haute Hippie Mocha Souffle Dress, but it had shipped incorrectly and was not due to arrive on time (I learned this at 7:30 p.m. on the scheduled arrival date). Luckily, I was connected with Serena in RTR Customer Service, who was a dream. She saved me from a total meltdown by overnighting three dress options (including the next size up of my original choice--my preferred size was no longer available) direct to my office. One of them was the Nicole Miller Stardust Beaded dress. I tried it on and fell in love instantly. The fit was comfortable without looking formless or baggy, and, while a little heavy, the beads made it stand out in a great way (no chafing, either!). It was also super portable (no ironing required), which was a huge help considering I had to change at the gala venue. I paired the dress with the RJ Graziano Dress Me Up Necklace, which would have been too much on a night out but was perfect for this costume gala. I got compliments on my look all night--I even made a full-length photo appearance in a local magazine afterwards! Long story short, had it not been for the shipping mishap or Serena's incredible help, this dress wouldn't have been a part of my unforgettable night. Would definitely rent again!

Great, unique beaded design with a racer back.

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I ordered two sizes (M and L). I ended up going with the Large. The dress had a narrow cut through the hips. The beading was somewhat delicate -- I think I may have lost a few with just sitting and standing. I loved the dress though. The event I attended allowed a range of acceptable attire so you could go casual or glam it up. I felt this dress worked well either way.

This dress is COVERED in beading. It's beautiful, but I was a little nervous wearing it out and about in crowded places because it feels a little delicate. The dress has an inner layer that fit me verry snugly, and the outer layer is more flowy, but kind of ruins your silhouette. I usually wear a large and this was a good choice. I got a TON of compliments on this dress and everyone wanted to know where I got it! Totally recommend it to anyone!

turning 30 in a sparkly, one of a kind party dress

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
i rented this dress for my 30th birthday party. the design is a cross between a peackock and a firework. i loved the racerback to slightly downplay the intricacy of the beadwork. i have big hips, so the medium was a bit snug in that area. i sized up to the large and it was perfect. i had such a blast wearing it, and was really sad to have to return it. i keep looking out to see if this dress somehow becomes available for sale, because i loved it so much! it was such a blast to wear, and comfortable.

Overall fit: True to Size

This dress is really pretty and definitely different from what you can find elsewhere. I ordered a size medium and was going to get a large as a backup but ended up getting the small after reading all the reviews that said to. I kind of wish I had gotten the large... The medium fit but skimmed my thighs and hips because they're the widest part of me; however, it did have some stretch to the fabric and it got a bit looser as the night went on. Overall, it's a really pretty dress, not too short, and pretty figure-flattering!

This dress was so comfortable! If you want it to be loose and a a few inches above your knee, order your true size. The only complaint is that the slip under the beaded layer fell a little below the hem of the top layer. Overall... a great dress for a party.

Love this! Very loose and forgiving, but short, so the rather baggy fit doesn't cause a problem. I am a 32F and I had no problem wearing the small, so this has room for anyone looking for a dress with extra room in the bust! Very sparkly and fun, I wore it to my bachelorette in vegas and got lots of compliments.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

I was bummed that the dress did not fit. I rented a small and large because medium was not an option. I found out before my event that only the small was available but I also had a backup dress which I ended up wearing (Nanette Lepore Plume shift). The dress was so prefect for a 1920s party but didn't fit. The top fit great but it was a little too tight in the hip area. As I walked it would bunch up and did not look right. The beading is gorgeous on this dress.

I rented this dress for a 1920s theme party and wore some long pearls with it. The dress was so comfortable, and I felt great in it. I would definitely rent this for similar themed party or NYE. I've worn a few sparkly/sequins dresses before where they'd itch my arms, but this dress didn't do any of that which was a plus.

Gorgeous dress, ok fit, arrived in a timely fashion.

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my very first rental experience with RTR and overall I am extremely pleased. The dress arrived the evening before my event which was cutting it close but I didn't want to pay extra to have it for 4 more days. I placed my order for a Medium and originally wanted my 2nd free size to be a Large since I wasn't sure how it would fit. Well, there were no Larges or Smalls to be had so I was stuck with one Medium. :/ The dress fit fine (thank God) however it was a bit tighter in the butt/thigh/hips - more so than what I was anticipating or envisioning for a "shift" dress...after seeing it on I don't know if the Large would've worked, it might have been too big in the boobs/arms? The dress was gorgeous; perfect for the "Great Gatsby" event we attended - however, it was apparent that this dress has been a popular rental as there were quite a few broken/missing beads and lots of little strings...nothing super noticable because there is a lot going on to distract from these issues! Overall, it was a great experience and I wouldn't hesitate to do it again...hopefully the next dress will have alternate sizes, just in case!

The fit is meant to be loose, so I found it to be true to size. The beading was a little loose in some areas, but that is to be expected with a dress like this and you can't really tell at a distance. Overall, for a themed party I think it is a great dress! Don't know that I would wear it to a non-1920s event, but if you've got a Gatsby party this is your dress.

Comfortable, Unique & Pretty!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress is meant to be flowy, so it's very loose around the torse, but it was the perfect 20s dress. Many of the beads were loose or came off, but there was enough of them that it wasn't all that noticeable. The top was very flattering, and the heaviness of the beaded dress gave it a really nice drape.
