The dress was just what I was looking for
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.

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.

The dress was beautiful however small ;-) I usually wear a 4 well I fit perfectly into an 8! They were wonderful and overnighted me another dress. Will always use RTR going forward! Customer service was outstanding!

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.

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!

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!

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.

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 :)

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!

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!

I want to own this dress. So flattering, so fun. I wore it with a black blazer w/ the sleeves rolled up and it made the best birthday date outfit. It does run on the smaller side around the waist. Loved 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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

Gorgeous & fun dress, but definitely runs small
After eying this dress for months, I finally rented it for a wedding. The ruffles and sequins details are playful and eye-catching without being over-the-top. Loved the gray color, too. I do wish that the dress was a bit longer and roomier on the bottom half. It is very fitted around the hips and bum, and very short when sitting. The size 4 fit, but I was much more comfortable--and less self-conscious about the length--in the 6. I accessorized with 4" black patent heels, my own jewelry, and the Lauren Merkin Louise Clutch (not pictured). Received tons of compliments -- one guest even knew it was from RTR! Glad I finally rented it, but probably won't come back to this one.

Only problem was the black waistband doesn't stretch at all, so it fits tight there. I would go up a size, I regretted wearing the smaller size throughout Prom Night and was afraid to eat.

I received so many compliments on this dress. I wore it to a 20s themed company holiday party
I normally wear a size 6, but based on other reviews on ordering it a size up, I did that and it was pretty accurate. I ended up wearing the size 8. It was a little big on top, but fit the rest of the way down. It was a gorgeous dress. I received so many compliments on it. I'm so glad it was available. I had no problems with it and did not need to use the fashion tape that came with it, but that was more out of laziness on my part.

Wore this dress for a NYE party and loved it!
This dress definitely runs on the smaller side, particularly on the bottom-half. I would say the top half runs truer to size. I am a true pear and the dress was pretty tight through my hips. Because of availability, I ended up with an 8 and a 12. Normally I wear an 8, so the 12 ended up being way too big, especially on top. However, it did give me more room in the hips and made the dress a bit longer. A 10 would have been perfect. In the end I wore the 8, but it was a lot more fitted through my hips and ended up being much shorter than the 12. If you are a pear or hourglass shape, I would definitely recommend ordering up one size! Also, the color is a bit different in person than in the pictures on the website. It is more of a grey than beige, which I thought was more flattering.

Someone asked if I'd worn this to the Oscars.
Beautiful, very feminine dress. Felt too tight all over and was not very comfortable as a result, but I loved it anyway.
