Gatsby Bachelorette done right thanks to RTR!
I loved this dress, but it definitely had a few flaws. Definitely size up for your spare size. The dress runs narrow in the hips and thighs and I don't think I would have been able to sit in the 8 without ripping the dress. The belt also could have used some fixing - either fashion tape or get a better belt that you can hide the one attached to the dress under. Overall it worked for my friend's Gatsby themed bachelorette!

Many compliments! Stood out!
So glad k went with this dress for my first rental. Had a Gatsby themed party and it was perfect. Got many compliments! The pearl necklace was also a rtr rental. It does run small, glad I listened to reviews. Normally wear a 6 and went with the 8, 10 as the back up was too big. It was rather short though so be prepared for that. Maybe a little itchy on the underarms because of material, but great otherwise!

Runs extremely small
Runs VERY small!! I'm in no way delusional about my size. I typically wear a 4 off the rack so I took the advice of others and ordered a size up at 6 and the 8 as a backup. The 6 was out of the question and the 8 was too tight to think I could be comfortable in it. I returned it without wearing it. The dress is beautiful and service is top notch though.

So in love with this dress!
First off this dress is so dainty and delicate!! The ruffles are stunning!!! I wanted to rent it SO bad and came very close to not doing it because I normally wear a size 2 ~ 4 but mostly 2's.....those sizes were completely booked! I tried to find another dress but couldn't get this one off my mind....I went back to read the reviews and saw the same statement on almost every one....the fact that this dress runs EXTREMELY SMALL!!!! Upon their opinions I went ahead and rented the 6 and let me just say that I could NOT have gotten into anything smaller!! This is a gorgeous dress but don't make the mistake of ordering your normal size!! Overall I LOVED THIS DRESS & so did everyone else!!

What a gorgeous dress! I received so many compliments at the Great Gatsby themed wedding I attended.
The dress definitely runs small and short. I'm normally a true size 2 with a 26 inch waist., but I had to wear the 4 The hip area was a little snug (I know my butt is not that large) & the dress was pretty short when you sat down. I still liked it overall.

Was intended for a 1920s, Great Gatsby themed party.
I read the reviews and knew this dress would run small, but holy cow, I couldn't even get it past my boobs! The bottom is not stretchy in the slightest and has ZERO wiggle room, so for those with a tight figure, this dress is for you! Those with curves: I would sadly not recommend, despite how cute it is.

I wore this for a Gatsby-themed wedding. It is a cute dress but it does run really short. I was really conscious when sitting down because the dress does ride up your thighs. I usually fit a size 4 or 6 in dresses, but for this dress in particular, size 8 fit well.

Sparkly and fun gatsby party dress
I just BARELY squeezed my giant nursing boobs into the top of this (34DDD into size 10) by not wearing a bra. I got tons of compliments on it though, and it hid my small postpartum pooch nicely. Not too low cut, very flattering. A little shorter than I expected.

This dress was stunning in person and fit the 1920's theme perfectly for my friend's wedding.
The dress can seem a little short but the fit is true to size and is very comfortable.

Amazing dress! So hard to decide which RTR to wear!
I ordered this for a 'roaring 20's' themed party. I ordered a 2 and 4. In regular clothes I wear a 2, in this dress the 4 was perfect! It looked great and was comfy. yes its a shorter dress- but that's OK- sexy! My only complaint is that I ordered a back up dress, which I also LOVED, so I ended up wearing the back up dress. I wanted to wear them both! This is a great dress!!

Multiple compliments all through the night!
I rented this for my company post-holiday party. I borrowed both size 4 (my regular size) and a size 6. To my surprise, I could not fit the size 4 at all and the 6 was tight!! I think I would have easily fit and felt comfortable in the Size 8. It was very short so bending over was a definitely no-no throughout the night, but I received so many compliments on the day and even after work a few days after! Everyone loved it!

Gatsby? What Gatsby?
Size up for backup! I'm usually a 4-6, but ended up wearing an 8. The ribbon on the waist has ZERO stretch. I wore this dress to my 1920's themed bridal shower. The dress was beautiful!

I got this dress for a wedding and a great gatsby themed New Years party in the same night. Wore it to both and got tons of compliments. I ordered a 4, it was so tight and short but the 6 was unavailable.

Tons of compliments at my company Roaring 20s Christmas Party!
Like other reviewers noted, this dress does run small. I ordered the 6 and 8 to be safe. The 6 fit perfectly, yet I still had room to move, dance, sit, etc. I liked this dress because I have a fuller, natural 34 d/dd and always super self conscious that "the girls" will be out. This dress is a v but the v falls well above the chest line so I had no worries when I bent over. The only part that I didn't love about the dress is that the back is very plain and thin, so make sure your tights or bra fit properly or you'll be able to see the lines. I suggest tights from Comando so they are dig free and no muffin top since their top is lace and not a band.

Perfect dress for a 1920's themed Christmas Party!
I ordered a 2 and the 4 for a back up but the size 2 worked well for me, it was a tad snug in the waist but not uncomfortably so and I didn't have any trouble with the belt rolling up as others have mentioned; as you can see in the picture it hit me right above the knee and I am quite short so it is probably not a good pick for tall women. I received compliments all night on how I looked and how beautiful the dress was . The whole experience was great, I will never buy a special occasion dress again when RTR makes renting one so easy.

Beautiful dress--fits very small!
I ordered a 6 with the 8 as my backup, and the 8 was almost too small on me. There is no stretch and no give, so be careful! That being said, it's a gorgeous dress and I got tons of compliments on it. It is absolutely perfect for a 20's themed party, but can also just be for any fancy party (like New Years!)

Great Gatsby party with great friends!
LOVED this dress! I wore it to a "Great Gatsby" themed party. I ordered a size 4 and 6. They both fit, but I ended up going with the size 6, for comfort. The black belt doesn't have any give. I knew there was going to be lots of food and dancing, so the size 6 was a good choice. This was my first Rent The Runway experience, and it was a great one. I will definitely be ordering again in the future.

Very Gatsby!
It worked for my party but ran pretty small. It was pretty hard to sit in (which I didn't do much of) and was very tight. It was a Gatsby themed event so this fit the bill but isn't something I would order again. Didn't really flatter in pictures and made me feel a bit bulkier than normal.

I wore this for a Gatsby event and dressed it up with fun jewelry. Great dress!
The fit is very tight around the middle. I am usually the smallest in my waist and this is where is fit least well. The six was not available so I just had the four.

It was a very playful dress yet very sexy.
I'm normally a size 4 but the 6 fit better. Ballroom dancing was so much fun with this dress. It can tend to ride up and when it does, it gets really short. And I'm pretty short - 5'3". So if you're tall, this is probably not the dress for you.

Beautiful but not meant for hips
Gorgeous dress, however I was disappointed as neither size I ordered fit. The material is really snug and I couldn't even get it over my hips, it has literally no give. RTR was AMAZING as always and I picked out another dress in time for my Gatsby themed party. The customer service is truly wonderful and it is always a pleasure using them!!

I liked this dress for the "costumy" Gatsby theme party. It looked better from the front and I'm not sure i would have loved it for a more traditional formal event. Mid-range quality.

Perfect dress for my vintage bridal shower!
I'm usually a 4, but I was worried because of the reviews that I would need the 6 (which was unavailable). I ordered an 8 as my backup, just in case it really was way too small. It actually fit pretty well, though, and I wore the 4. The only part that was tight was the ribbon around the waist, which is not adjustable and has no flex. By the end of the day, driving home, I just had to unzip for that reason. As others have mentioned, it is pretty short, but that only really bothered me while sitting down. Standing the length was just fine. Also, the color really is a cool grey, where the pictures make it look a little warmer.

Beautiful, comfortable and exactly what I needed!
This dress was exactly what I was looking for. It was beautiful in person, and was surprisingly comfortable and easy to wear (no pulling, adjusting or duck taping required...this is a well-made dress)! Do be aware that it runs a bit small; I could fit in the size 2 that I ordered, but the backup size 4 was a much better fit. Also, the zipper is very delicate and seemed a bit worn, so take extra care. This was my first time using RTR, and I'm a very picky chicky, but I couldn't be happier with this rental!

Paired it with fishnets, pearls, long gloves and a headband for a themed look.
I rented this dress for a 20's themed party. The size 4 fit perfectly but was way too short. I practiced bending, reaching and sitting before I left the house and had to switch into the 6 for the extra length. It was a really pretty dress and something different. It would work for many other occasions; not solely Gatsby parties.

Cute dress but really short!
Rented this for a Gatsby style fashion shoot. It runs small and we used the dress one size larger than our model's usual size 4. As much as I liked the lightness of the dress, it was just way too short for my liking and we ended up only shooting from the mid-thigh up. (We could see up her dress every time she sat down.)
