This dress is absolutely gorgeous! It fit me perfectly. I'm tall so I expected it to be short, but it hit right at mid-thigh. I got so many compliments and would DEFINITELY recommend this dress to others!

So flattering!

Picture does not do this dress justice! It's gorgeous! I got an array of compliments on it at a fall wedding in San Francisco. I've rented Sachin + Babi before and all their dresses look great on tall, thin-framed women. I wore a 10 in the last S+B dress, but I had to wear a 12 in this one for the waist to be comfortable & to get the most length. I'll be renting this one again :)

This dress is amazing , very unique! Hit me just where it shows on the model. I am busty but straight from the waist down. The two was a tad snug in bust but the 4 worked when I pinned in the waist. Soooo many compliments

Runs Too Small ontop

I normally can wear either a 6 or an 8, so I rented both sizes. Unfortunately for me, I was unable to zip up the back of the dress. I got to the top middle part of my back and it just was not going to go any further. Too bad...because it fit great everywhere else and the front looked awesome in the mirror.

Great Dress!

I loved this dress! I ordered a size 6, but ended up wearing the size 8. The ribbon detail was a little tight, so I opted for going with the larger size. I got a ton of compliments on the dress and would definitely rent it again! The bottom half of the dress is lined, but the top half is a little sheer in the back, but nothing a nude bra couldn't fix. This dress had great sparkle without being too much. It was also comfortable to wear all night; which in my book is a huge plus!

Perfect!

It looks more silvery/gray in person. The dress looks amazing on and is extremely flattering. I got nothing but compliments and girls telling me they wanted to borrow the dress. Only con was that it was a little tight at the end of the dress so it rode up a little. Other than that, I highly recommend this dress!

It was perfect for my date function's twenties theme!

I rented this dress for a "Roaring 20's" themed date function I had with my sorority and it was absolutely perfect! I got tons of compliments on it. It does like more gray in person and fits a little snug up top. I usually wear a 6, but had to size up to an 8. I would definitely recommend this dress for any formal occassion!

Loved the dress!

This dress was fabulous! Wore it and got so many compliments. The fit was a little small and the ribbon around the waist was tight. I ordered the 2 and the 4 and ended up wearing the 4. The top only fit because I have a 34A bust, unless you have a very straight body type it might be a hard fit. But I would definitely recommend it!

I wore this to my friend's engagement party. I absolutely loved it. The only word of caution is that the dress is pretty short. I was able to pair this with opaque tights and it worked perfectly.

Cute dress!

I rented this dress for my holiday party at work and got SO many compliments from my co-workers. It's a really gorgeous dress but it definitely runs small. It fit me perfectly, but the black waist band was very tight and constricting (there is no give). I would definitely go a size up. I'm also surprised how short the dress was (I'm on 5 foot 3) and it didn't look as short on the model in the picture. I wore it with black tights, which was good because it's also sheer. You'll need to wear it with a nude strapless bra. The top is a little had more ruffles on it and it was kind of flufflier than I would have liked (otherwise I would have given it 5 stars). I loved the bottom portion though. This would be a perfect NYE dress!

Rented this dress for a holiday party. It is very pretty and feminine. I didn't find it as short or sheer as other reviews, (I'm 5'2 and wore 5" heels). Received tons of compliments. It's a must rent.

So feminine and pretty!

Wore this dress to a NYE party and got sooo many compliments! It might run a teeensy bit small, but that's because the black band at the waist has no stretch to it. I am 5'9 and a 34B and ordered the 4 and 6, ended up wearing the 6. Overall great dress, would def rent again!!

Adorable Dress!

I rented this dress for our New Year's Eve Party that we hosted at our apartment. I ended up getting engaged that night (!!!) on top of the Empire State Building, and I got so many compliments there and at the party. It was the best night ever, and I'm so glad I had a beautiful dress to wear to it. Rent it, you'll love it!

Roaring 20's party

The dress runs small! I usually wear a size 4, but ended up wearing the 6. It was perfect for the roaring 20's party. It arrived clean and in good shape. Very happy with my 1st rental with rent the runway!

Got tons of compliments throughout the night and friends said it was very "me"

Loved the dress; I usually wear a 6/8 (top/bottom) and found the top and the belt to fit great in a 8 and be a bit tight in the hips. The 10 was too loose in the top but fit better through the hips. Ultimately went with the 8, but was definitely a bit shorter/tighter than I am used to, though still flattering. Overall loved the rental!

Classy, fun, and feminine

I rented this dress for my son's school gala. It's such a fun and feminine dress! The color is much richer in person - more of a warm silver with some gold and a deeper tone than in the photo. I'm relatively fair-skinned and the color still complemented me both in person and in photos. The fit is on the smaller side. I usually wear a size 4 and am a 34C and it fit snugly in the bust. I also ordered the 6, but decided I liked the 4 better. My only complaint is that there was a very small square in the back of the dress by the zipper that looked like it had been cut out. Fortunately the layer underneath was still there and I don't think it was too noticeable. Overall, though, it was a fabulously fun and classy dress and I will definitely rent again...and would love an excuse to rent this exact dress again!

Lots of compliments

Dress does run small...1 size smaller than a "normal" brand, 2 sizes smaller than a vanity-sized brand like Ann Taylor or Banana. Also note the length! I'm 5' 6" and could not have gotten away with this length if I were any taller...super cute, but super short. The front feels longer than it is due to the ruffles, but back has no length for sitting comfortably or bending over at all. I knelt down to sign the guest book so as not to flash those behind me! I wasn't sure about this dress at first as the v-neck didn't seem overly flattering, but I was flooded with compliments all night. It's such a unique dress that nobody was analyzing the neckline.

Fantastic dress!

I loved wearing this dress. It had a nice grey color and just the right amount of sparkle. I received many compliments. Fit: I rented both a 4 and 6. The 4 was a bit small around the butt and wouldn't close at the bust. The 6 fit perfectly, but it is a little short (I'm 5'6). One issue: The black ribbon at the waist was nice for defining, but it tended to curl up a bit throughout the night. I doubt anyone but me noticed.

Comfortable and flattering!

I ordered this dress in a size 6 and an 8 for my Bachelorette party. I'm generally between a 4 and a 6, and the size 8 fit perfectly, so size up!!! At 5'9" the dress was short... so just beware. For this occasion, the length was totally fine. The dress was fun and comfortable to wear (you can wear a bra with it).

Good Date Night Dress.

I rented this for my fancy birthday dinner that my boyfriend was taking me to. I rented both the 4 and 6, the 4 was a little snug around the hip and butt area, so I went with wearing the 6 instead so I could be comfortable. I got TONS of compliments from people at the restaurant that thought the dress was gorgeous, and my boyfriend loved it too. I also wore it the day after to a political function with a lot of elected officials and campaign people. I figured it was ok to wear it again since it looked so great. I did have another dress for the political function, but it was too dressy for the event, and this one was just dressy enough without being over dressed.

Perfect!

I am 15 and wore this dress to Sadies. It was stunning. If you want to stand out AND get compliments on your dress (I mean who wouldn't?!) this is definatley the dress for you. The fabic pieces are neither teathered or destroyed. The sparkles add a little "OMPF" to the dress to make the dress look complete. I wore the dress with nude pumps and it worked flawlessley. The dress was uber comfortable. I did not have to mess around with the fabric pieces at all and they did not become static, which I was pleaslently suprised about. Being a little bit taller than most women, this dress was the perfect length. Picture the length of bermuda shorts minus 1 inch. Simply a perfect length. The black fabric/ribbon belt did not budge a bit. Overall, this dress did not cause a fuss at all, but made a flawless lasting impression!

Classy but fun party dress

I rented this dress for New Year's Eve last year and I absolutely loved it! (& so did my boyfriend!) It's a perfect length, doesn't ride up at all - perfect for dancing. I thought it fit a bit small, especially through the waist and there is no "give" at at all.

The dresses (I used a "rent a second look for $25" to have a back up) arrived and both fit perfectly to size! It was so hard to choose between them but this one was one that caught my eye on the website for months. I finally pulled the trigger and rented and I am so glad I did! I felt like a million bucks in that dress without having to break the bank to do so..... and now that dress doesn't have to sit in the back of my closest haunting me because of how much I paid for it. I think I am done buying formal wear. I'm a RTR enthusiast for life!

I can't tell you how many quests at this wedding stopped me to tell me how beautiful my dress was... some of them I didn't even know! All night long I praised RTR while my husband sported the RTR sunglasses I got as a free gift.

I felt so beautiful and confident and that is exactly what a dress should make you feel like!

This dress is stunning. The other reviews were very helpful when deciding the dress size. I normally wear a 2 but decided to get the second size in 4 since the other reviews said the belt doesn't stretch. I am really glad I did because the 4 fits like a glove! I would suggest this dress for any event as it is really classy and sophisticated but still fun! I am really sad to have to send this dress back!

Lots of compliments. People couldn't believe I rented it!

Wore this to an outdoor wedding and it was perfect. Went well with flat shoes and was very comfortable for dancing. I probably could have worn a 0 but it didnt look too big on me and it made it easy to move around. It was about mid thigh in length with the mesh parts hanging a bit lower. Didn't feel too short or too long at all. All I had to add was some earrings and it was perfect.

Beautiful Dress!

The 0 fit me perfectly, it is actually a little more fitted then in the picture, but in a good way. The picture truly does not do the top half of the dress justice as there are all silver sequins underneath. ABsolutely gorgeous dress that I unfortunately did not wear because I ended up with a herve Leger, But I will most definitely be renting in the future! Perfect for petite girls!

this is a very pretty dress. It was actually "too pretty" for the girls night out... would be great for a more formal affair. I thought it was a bit short. Otherwise it's beautiful. I would have worn the sz 6.

It was a little tight and I wasn't a huge fan of the way the ruffles laid on the shoulder. However, It was a great dress and I got a few compliments on it that night!

I wore this dress for my bachelorette party and it was a hit! I usually wear a 4 so I ordered the 4 and 6, I wore the 6. When I posted my pics of FB I got so many complements and everyone was asking me where I got the dress. Love, love, loved it!

Great New Year's Eve Dress!

I wore this dress for New Year's Eve, and I loved it! Just enough sparkle! I got so many compliments! It was a little tight in the chest so I went with the 8 vs. my usual size 6.
