Classic dress with a touch of sparkle
The dress ran really big, and I should have ordered and wore an 8 instead of a 10. It was still a beautiful dress though and I received many compliments on it throughout the evening!

Edgy glam! This was the perfect dress for my 30th birthday party-part 2!
This dress was exactly what I was looking for! It made me feel edgy and very rocker glam. I loved the cutout design of the glitter and black- very flattering! I wanted something form-fitting but not skin tight and unflattering to my curvy (chubby) body type. The dress hugged my body and was the perfect length above my knees so it wasn't riding up and didn't make me feel frumpy! The bold glitter accent was perfect for making me stand out- as it was my 30th birthday! The best part is that since a previous rental didn't work out, I got to use my credit and rent this dress for almost nothing! Love the customer service and will definitely be RTR-ing frequently!

Didn't fit
Got the 2 and 4 and the 2 was huge- that's why I always bring a backup! Sad the dress wasn't good but RTR was great and gave me a credit. I still use them all the time.

Loved the gold sequin accents!
Wore this dress for a New Years Eve party. The dress fit pretty true to size, and looked gorgeous in photos. The length was a little too long for my liking, in the photo it ends at mid-thigh but when I wore it, it was longer than that. My particular dress also had a wire in the top that was slightly out of place and started to poke me throughout the night. Other than that, it looked great in photos and I got a ton of compliments.

Statement-making little dress
I liked this dress but it is easily the smallest, tightest thing I've ever worn, at least in the last 10 years. I found it to be quite short (I'm 5' 3" and it hit about mid thigh). The boning isn't terribly strong so I had to pull it up pretty frequently. Otherwise, for the right occasion, I think this is a great party dress.

fun, elegant and comfortable
there are some beautiful dresses out there but they are uncomfortable, I think it is true to size, this is easy to wear, fits perfect, the gold is more yellow then in the picture, I ordered a size 6 and an 8, had to go with the 8, I was hoping I've lost some weight but I didn't, love the dress, used it to go on a date with the hubby and I felt beautiful :)

Bad fit
I didn't end up wearing the dress because the fit was awkward. It was cut straight down and didn't come on at my waist like I thought it would. I would not recommend this for someone with curves! It looked much better on the hanger.

Rented for my 30th bday in AC!
Super flattering. Form fitting, and no under garments were needed. Only complaint was that the some glitter fell off as I was trying it on. It wasn't enough to see a difference in the dress.

Hollywood Glam
The fit of this dress is odd. Not bad, just odd. It's very tight, but not terribly form-fitting and didn't accentuate my curves (which are basically non-existent) as much as I would have liked. The top felt loose but I wasn't worried about it falling down, even without wardrobe tape. I wouldn't describe it as an ideal dress for someone as petite as me, but I looked and felt good. My last RTR I had a 0 and 2 and wore the 0. This time, there was only a 2 and 4 available. I wore the 2, but honestly I almost fit better into the 4. Definitely order up a size. Overall, it was a great dress for a date night at the opera for a good price!

Rent the Runway is a great company to work with, and getting two sizes makes life easier!
I rented this dress for New Year's Eve. The color and gold sequins were perfect for the event. The dress was on sale and I've rented from Rent the runway once before, so I knew the experience would be simple and straight forward. They did not have a size 6 which is sometimes what I wear. I also sometimes wear a size 4, so I order that one. I had read in some of the other reviews that the dress can run large, so I order the size 2 for my second size... because why not. I was really glad I had the size 2! Some of the other reviewers had complained about the bunching of the dress along the hip region. When I tried on the 4, this was very prominent. The size 2 was a little tight on the top around the bust line, but the reduction in the bunching along the hip made it worth a little snugness. Overall, the smaller size was more flattering. I gave this dress three stars because of a couple things: the bunching at the hip, the hanging straps popped out of the dress constantly and were a huge pain, and I wasn't a huge fan of the gold sequin color as I thought I would be. Rent the Runway is an amazing company and I will absolutely rent again from them. I just would not rent this dress again.

Great dress for NYE!
I wore this dress for a NYE party and it was great! I opted for the larger size to have a little more comfortable fit as the fit of the dress is rather snug, and the 6 fit great! Loved the gold sequins with the black!

The option of dress sizes was just what I needed, and that I was able to ship it back from Vegas!
I wore this in Vegas for my sister's bachelorette party. I'm a new mom who was still losing baby weight, and this dress helped hide my flaws and made me feel fabulous!

Pretty, but not my fav.
So, as others have posted, this one has some bunchy areas in the fabric that you can't really fix. It was ok, but not overly flattering. I think it may look better on a taller girl with a bigger chest that my HUGE 32A chest (hahaha!). The quality is decent and it doesn't look cheap at all (which I find to be a problem with many sequin dresses). I needed to go down a size but even then wasn't getting the hour glass look I wanted. I didn't wear this for my event and wouldn't rent again....but it could look really good on the right person.

This was a beautiful dress and I would totally reccommend it to anyone!
I got this dress for my sophomore year homecoming. It was gorgeous and I received lots of compliments! My dress size is a 0 or a 2 depending on the designer. I ordered a 2 and a 4 because those were the smallest sizes. The only problem I had was that I tried on the 2 and it was really big! It seemed like it got streched out by other people wearing it. I almost couldn't wear it, so I had to pin it. I suggest you go down a size because of this problem. The length was a little longer than expected, but I didn't mind. Overall, it was a great dress and I loved it! I would highly reccommend this dress!

loved the dress and got so many complements- it was a good change from the typical LBD
the fit of the dress was great, the only hitch was that the zipper sometimes sticks because of the sequin inserts but other than that it was fine! It fit well in the bust too so I didn't need to constantly pull the dress back up.

Fun, sparkly dress for a special occasion!
I wore this dress for New Year's Eve in AC. It was the perfect look for dinner & dancing. It was confortable and fit well - I didn't have to keep pulling it up like you sometimes do with strapless dresses. My only complaint was that the little hanger straps kept popping out in the front. Otherwise, it was a great dress that was just the right amount of sparkle.

Didn't wear it
There was a noticeable bulge on the left hip area of the size 4, in the black fabric between the sequined areas. I think if the size 2 would have been sent as well (it was noted that the smaller size was not available) the smaller size would have had a better fit. Ultimately it was something I just couldn't deal with so I didn't wear the dress.

The dress is pretty but I didn't find it very flattering
The dress ran a little big and the sequins make areas of your body look not particularly flattering. Personally I think it didn't look good on me.

cute but didnt rock it bc it was my back up
ordered as my back up. i have wide hips and a small waist and i found this hard to get on. once on, it fit ok, kind of tight. the biggest turn off was how the sequined design in the middle by my waist didn't mold to my body and stuck out like an awkward bulge. other than that, it was cute, but my first choice looked better. wish i would have taken a picture.

New Years Eve 2012
This dress has a huge pooch on the left side by the zipper. I had to constantly pull on it. Someone else had mentioned it in a comment so you would've thought they corrected this problem. It was my first time to rent and dress and the dress itself is beautiful. My only reservation is they aren't paying attention to feedback about quality and fit or they would've fixed it. Only other problem is the hanger straps keep popping out while dancing. You can't cut them like I normally would so next time I'd tape them down. The dress itself was hot!

I loved all the compliments I received while wearing this dress!
This dress was amazing! Super comfortable and fit really well. I would have given it 5 stars but I was really disappointed by the ribbon that was sewn in to hang the dress up. It kept popping out and showed in almost every picture. I would suggest double stick tape.

New Years Glitter and Gold!
Wore the dress for night out at the casino on New Years Eve. The dress was perfect. I received a 10 and a 12 in the mail, a day earlier than expected, which was great. I was was able to track its arrival. I was initially worried because we were in the middle of a storm when it was due to arrive but it came well packaged. When I tried on the dresses, both sizes fit pretty well but since I had dinner plans, I went with the 12 to combat any post-meal bloat. I paired the dress with some sparkly gold heels and black nylons. Bottom line, the dress was KILLER! It fit perfectly and looked gorgeous. I'm 5'10 and it came up mid thigh. It was very fitted, but breathable. If you have anything on your hips and stomach you'd like to keep hidden, spanx are probably a necessity. I was concerned about the dress staying up because I am not particularly busty but that didn't turn out to be a problem. The dress stayed put all night. My only complaint was the zippers were tough on both dresses! They stuck. I was terrified I'd tear the dress! Overall though, that didn't ruin it for me. Bottom line, this dress is stunning and everyone I came in contact with complimented it nonstop. The whole RTR experience was pheomenal. I already have a second dress ordered for a party I am going to in less than two weeks. Love it!

Perfect dress for a holiday party for work
I rented the size 2 and 4, and I chose to wear the 2. The dress fit perfectly. From walking around in it to dancing most of the night, I felt like it was really comfortable. I did not find myself adjusting it constantly like other strapless dresses I have worn in the past. The smaller size fit a little more snug, and I felt that it hid the bunch on the hip that other reviews mentioned about the dress.

Super hot look!
This is a PARTY dress! It was my second choice of 2 dresses I chose for a formal event, but the length was too short. I would definitely rent it again for a NYE party or birthday bash! SO flattering and fun. I would wear some intense smokey eye makeup, nude/natural lips, and either black or nude heels. Most definitely on my radar for the next party I go to!

Right dress for a holiday party!
Perfect little dress for my company's Monte Carlo themed party. Just enough skin showing without being volgur. Hugged every curve so don't eat a big meal before you put the dress on. Was very forgiving, nothing special needed not even a strapless bra. Ton's of compliments, easy to find accessories and shoes to match. Would definitely recommed if you aren't trying to be over the top but still be fitting to party.

Beautiful dress, but too small for busty women
This dress was so cute and beautiful, but it was way too small on the top. It has straps inside to help hang it on the hanger, but they definitely wouldn't fit around anyone's bust bigger than a C. I have a DD and could zip it up until it got to my chest!! Still a really cute dress though, but anyone but a bust, size 10 or larger I don't think it would fit! My friend ended up wearing it though and she is a size 6!

Very comfortable dress, and photogenic dress; wore this to homecoming and recieved many compliments!
I received size 4 (which I wore, I normally wear size M, 8 in juniors) and a size 6 for back up. The boning on the right side of the dress was worn and the back up dress was missing completely. The dresses were beautiful but I think they need to be retired. I absolutely loved this dress and everybody said they loved it too!

NYE Sparkle
Wore size 4 in this dress and it fit well except for this odd bulge on the left hip. I was definitely aware of it all night but otherwise it was a very pretty dress.
