Perfect 1920s inspired dress for a Great Gatsby themed wedding!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Dress fit a little tight in my hips (I am curvy) but over was comfortable and exactly what I was hoping for. Great color. I would have liked it a little longer but was overall happy with the look

Cute dress for Gatsby wedding!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a Gatsby wedding. I am 6 months pregnant and it was so comfortable! I liked that I could wear it either high or low. I liked how the high looked, but with the bump, it made it very short. I probably would have went with that way if I wouldn't be chasing my toddler around. The low waist didn't give me a very good shape, but the length was perfect, I could stuff myself full of amazing food, and it was comfortable on my baby bump.

Gorgeous dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Dress comes with a nude slip as well as the sequined outer layer. I am curvy so I found the fit to be a little off, though I would say it does run true to size. The slip was tight around my hips, where I am curviest, and yet the waistband of the dress was a little loose and would slip lower than I would have liked. So the fit wasn't perfect, but honestly I didn't care because I felt so beautiful in this dress. 100% would rent again.

Perfect dress for a 1920s theme party!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I wore this for my 1920s themed birthday party and it was perfect! It photographs beautifully too! I went with a 6 instead of a 4 because it's a little tighter on the bottom half and I am more pear shaped. So I would suggest sizing up for you back up dress. Loved every minute wearing it!

Beautiful dress and so fun!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this to a friend's wedding in Park City (cocktail attire) and it was perfect! Very sparkly. Based on the other reviews and my body type I actually ordered a size down as my alternate. It is two separate pieces...a nude slip and then the dress. The slip for the size 6 hung down an inch below the dress, which I didn't like so I wore the size 4 slip with the size 6 dress and it worked perfectly (the only difference I could tell between the two slips was the length). Very comfortable, great dress and I got a ton of compliments. It's definitely on the short side, so wear it if you want to show off your legs, but I didn't have any trouble dancing all night. Additionally, I wore normal undergarments and it was fine.

runs true to size, you need to be very careful when putting it on/taking it off because of the sequin get stuck together, the undergarment was a little beat up

It fits true to size. I wore a 2 when typically in jeans I am a 4. I am athletic built and weight 124. Each person is different. It's comfortable, easy to move in, beautiful, and 20's themed! My favorite! #Wedding

This was a great rental, perfect for a formal summer wedding. It was 95 degrees in DC and I was so glad I had this on instead of a long dress. I received many compliments. I would have worn the size 6 but the slip underneath was a little tight on my legs. The 8 had plenty of room so I went with it. Would rent again!

Perfect amount of glitter for a Vegas wedding!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The dress arrived on time as promised and I immediately packed it up for a trip to Vegas. It fit wonderfully and went well with gold heels. I had bought a glittery headband to go with it but it made the dress look too "Gatsby". It was very comfortable and got loads of compliments. Best part was that I was able to drop it off in person at the Rent the Runway store in the Cosmopolitan!

Amazing dress! I absolutely loved it, as did everybody else. When it comes to size it was very true to size, I'm a bit wide in the hips and so was a bit snug there but nothing prevented me from walking naturally or dancing. The length was just right. The underslip tended to ride up a bit but not much. The sequence didn't itch at all on the inside of the arm either. Overall a great dress!

Loved this dress! So comfortable and loved that you can adjust the waist. I was worried about the cut of the dress due to my pear shape and drop waist normally make my hips look huge, but it was surprisingly flattering! Perfect for an event in the transition time to the fall season, very easy to dance in and eat.:)

I loved this dress! Perfect for 1920's themed event.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

I was so happy with this dress. It runs slightly large, but the cinched waist allows you to make the fit work for you - either wearing it blousy at the top if needed. The sequins are more of a bronze than gold. The length was perfect. I got a lot of compliments on the dress and loved everything about it. I would highly recommend this dress.

A complete stranger came up and told me how great my dress was

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is gorgeous! I loved wearing it, and my husband was disappointed I had to send it back. I wore it as a bridesmaid in my brother's 20's theme wedding. I ordered a size 8, with no backup size, as the 10 wasn't available. Unfortunately, the slip packed with my size 8 dress was actually a size 6! I don't catch the mistake in time, so I wore it anyway. It was a bit tight through the bottom (I have a booty!), but it worked out fine. I would definitely rent this dress again. It is beautiful!

Love this dress - perfect for a glittery night out

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I was surprised how much I loved this dress after I put it on - it has an elastic waistband that I thought would look weird, but it's really makes the top soft & lovely. The length is great for my 5'4" height and the sequins are not scratchy to the skin. Though it's softly loose, the slip dress underneath is more fitted so stick with "true to size". The dress is basically see through. I will be renting this one again - we did not attend the function as planned, so it's on my wish list for later.

I actually rented another dress, but because there were missing sequins, I notified RTR about it. Stylist Kahlilah was so great. She told me to select another dress and overnighters this to me. Dress and overnight shipping was no cost to me! She even included a bracelet as a little surprise for me. I'm SO glad there's a great company like RTR. They definitely have MY loyalty!

I ended up not choosing this dress for my event.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I really loved the sequin detailing of this dress-it has a beautiful flapper-esque feel to it. There is a separate slip underneath the sequined top of the dress, and this part was a little tighter around my hips and thighs than the sequined top itself. The top half of the dress was close to being unflattering, as the cinched part of the dress needed to be pulled up around my natural waist to make it fit right. Wearing it as a dropped waist was not very flattering for me personally. Overall, a really gorgeous dress!

Size worn: 2

We had our wedding rehearsal dinner at a 1920's Detroit speakeasy and jazz club- it was the perfect venue and this was the perfect dress for our 20's theme. I got so many compliments. I loved the fit and the gold sequins! The fit is casual/loose but still flattering, not too long or short, and really comfortable. The sequins are not cheap looking. I wish I owned this dress!

Danced the night away!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was perfection! ~I ordered a size 6 and a size 8, and ended up using the size 6 dress and size 8 slip~ I have a broad upper body/thin waste/wide hips, so the fact that this dress has cap sleeves and still managed to fit my legs and arms comfortably was more than I ever expect out of a dress. The only discomforts: Sequins are uncomfortable to sit on for long periods of time, taking the dress off left me with a few scratches because of the sequins. It's such a great "in between" of fancy & casual dressy. I wore this to a catholic ceremony & country themed wedding reception and never felt over or under dressed!

Beautiful Dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress if very beautiful and flattering for hour glass shape. I attended a very conservative high school so I had to wear a slip underneath just in case it was too short, but I do not think it is too short for the ordinary woman. The cinch at the waste is very flattering. I loved this dress!

Better without the slip! Wear it as a tunic. Super cute with a tank under it and leggings

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Vacation
I wasn't crazy about the dress itself and wasn't even going to wear it but then I tried it with a white tank it actually looked really cute. With the slip it made me look bland and didn't do anything for my figure. Other than that the tunic part is really beautiful. The white tank really made the design pop.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved the dress and got many compliments. The slip felt a little too short but it didn't look too short. The sequins scratched under my arms a bit but it wasn't even noticeable until the next day. Based on the reviews, I wanted this dress in a size 2 but it was not available. I ordered a 4 with a 0 as my backup size. I was then told the 0 was unavailable so I was sent a 2 in a similar dress. It was generally the same dress but the sequins and slip were pink. Strangely, the 2 felt bigger than the 4. I ended up wearing the 4 in the original style I picked (cream color slip and bronze sequins) because the color was more flattering on me. I would recommend this dress and will definitely be using rent the runway again.

Perfect for a Roaring 20's / Prohibition Theme Party

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
We said goodbye to my 20's with a prohibition theme party and this dress was perfect - felt modern and pretty but went with the theme. The lining is completely separate from the sheath so I wore a black slip underneath instead of the nude. Better for winter skin tone!! The dress is very comfortable but the elastic at the waistband shifted around a bit during the night. I'm happier with how I look in some pics vs. others based on what's happening at my waist!
