Really cute dress but runs small through the hips and the size up was too big on top. Made for someone with a narrow bum.

Runs large on top and small around the leg opening, so if you're thin with large breasts this works for you! I'm a 30D and could not fill the top of a size 2, and the black liner poked out the top. I expected a designer dress to be well made but this was cheaper looking in person. Can't recommend Rent the Runway enough, such a great service and they do it with style!

Loved the dress in all its style details - fabric, color and cut. However, I found the bust to be a bit too big and the hemline a bit to snug - made it difficult to take long strides or dance the night away. I would certainly purchase this dress and have it altered to fit my frame better, and think it's more suited for someone with a longer torso. Gorgeous dress!!

Beautiful dress! I wore a size 0 which fit well but the dress runs large in the top. The strap is long which makes the dress hang low in the chest. It was a bit snug in the bottom hem but I'm short so there was just enough room to move and flattered the hip area. Got plenty of compliments all night!

A truly Beautiful dress. The bust was a tad loose but with a bit of fashion tape stayed in place!!

Beautiful dress, very flattering to my large busted/thick waisted figure! The material looks leather-like in the photos, but is actually more of a thin (yet durable) soft metallic fabric. It's well-constructed and lined, though, so not flimsy at all. I am normally a size 8 - 10, but I had to wear a 12 in this dress, and even then it BARELY fit (luckily I got the 12 as my second size!). So: be forewarned that you need to size up when you wear designer clothes such as this dress.

I had a wonderful birthday in this shiny gold Robert Rodriquez!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for my birthday a few weeks ago because I wanted to be all gold and shiny for my big night out. It was great-- my favorite part was that it was really structured and hid my stomach well. I got a ton of compliments on how nice it looked. The only major problem for me was that some of the boning had started to poke through the fabric, and it was rubbing against my skin all night. Very uncomfortable.

Great dress that'll turn heads

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for a company holiday party. Like others have said, the bust area is large but that worked OK for me because I have a larger bust. The bottom is more fitted. What I loved most about this dress was that I did not have to feel self-conscious about my stomach in this dress. The middle ruching did me a ton of favors, and I didn't have to wear Spanx for it! Also, it covers you up in that area without adding extra bulk, so that was great. The lame means this dress is a bit darker than the photos show. It's a darker gold with black undertones, basically. I did need a little fashion tape to ensure everything held together on the strapless side but other than that, it was a perfect fit!

I felt like an Oscar Award wearing this dress. The color seemed odd at first but it complemented my skin well. I got so many complements. I loved it.

Striking but restrictive

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress really makes an impression! I sized up one to make sure the skirt wasn't too short. However, as a result, I had to tape and pin my strapless bra to the dress. Still... received many compliments!

I loved this dress. It was a little loose on the top but nothing a little double sided tape couldn't fix. I felt really sexy!

so comfortable and so cute

The fit was great.. I wore it to a wedding and it was perfect for the occasion. It was good for the ceremony worn with a blazer and sexy for the afterparty! Danced in it all night long and it was easy and fun.

This dress made me feel really beautiful, but it was very hard to dance in.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Runs small in the hip and big in the chest (given, I'm more of a pear, so I should assume most clothes will fit as such). The fabric did not provide much stretch and was a bit difficult to dance in. I suggest sizing up.

Perfect for NYE

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This was perfect for a NYE party, and not your typical sequins. It fit snugly, but not too tight- however, it was touch pulling it over my hips to use the restroom..awkward, but all in all, it was great!
