Perfect dress for a 20s themed wedding!
Loved this dress! This was my first time renting with RTR and it was fabulous. I took my time to read the reviews, which really paid off. It was comfortable and perfect for a tiny gal like me. I was able to look glamourous and dance the night away. Its an unusual style, so something I wouldnt wear all of the time, so renting was the perfect option.

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.)

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!

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.

Perfect for the Gatsby event
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!!

Never have I received more compliments at a fancy work party! It was a winter party, so I wore black tights and black suede booties with the dress.

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.

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!

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!

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!!

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!

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!
