Perfect glamorous dress for Gatsby party!
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!

Very unique dress!! Beautiful and comfortable!
Fit was true to size. There is a shell that goes underneath which allows for some room. The top layer is very thin and delicate but it was a perfect dress for the occasion.

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

The gold detail!
This dress was exactly what I hoped it would be! Perfect for a wedding in New Orleans with a metallic and navy theme. The slip was a bit short but was not a problem. The gold detail is beautiful! Never felt too hot, material was comfortable and easy to move in. It was a hit!

Love this dress!
I rented this dress for a friend's wedding. I absolutely loved this dress- the slip and the dress both had a bit of spandex material which made them fit great. I got so many compliments on this dress- I would definitely rent it again!

Stunning birthday freebie!
I loved this dress! I planned a nice dinner out with friends for my birthday and enjoyed this freebie as part of RTR Pro. It was comfortable, fun, and photographed great! It ran a little big, so I wore the bigger slip for length and the smaller dress. Wish I owned this one!

Lots of Compliments!
I really liked this dress! Everyone said I looked like a flapper. The size 6 was unavailable , but I would assume this would have fit me better than the 8. The slip was showing above the v neck, but again if I wore the 6 maybe that wouldn't have been the case.

Perfect for a speakeasy birthday party!
The outer layer is a bit loose whereas the inner layer is more tight. Since I ordered two sizes, in the end I wore the size 6 slip with the size 4 outer layer. Nude undergarments are non negotiable with this dress. Very fun piece for the birthday party fundraiser I attended which was speakeasy themed! The dress was easy to accessorize because the sequins have an almost mixed metal look to them. I wore two strands of faux pearls (one blue/navy and one pearl), a gold crystal headband, red lipstick and black pumps for the speakeasy look. If you accessorized it differently (less sparkle and pearl), I think it could be worn for a fun (non themed) night out.

Sparkle!
The dress arrived and was very wrinkled- ironing helped. I initially loved the fit and the look but wearing it I could not get the waist to stay up and fold as it should. Wearing it straight was not as flattering.

I liked the dress! It has a weird fit around the waist. Gorgeous dress, sequins were not itchy.
I rented this for a Gala event for my husband's bank. It has a weird fit around the waist, but it is a really gorgeous dress that was fun and easy to wear. If I had shape wear that fit, that would have helped.

Great MOB dress!
I ordered 3 dresses to choose from to wear to my daughters wedding. This one fit my DD bust and looked pretty good so that makes it a winner! Tons of complaints, everyone enjoys that:)

Loved this dress for a Prohibition (1920s) party!
I was a little worried as a blonde about renting a gold dress, but the color worked. I loved the sparkly detail and it was perfect for a 1920s themed party. The slip is separate and felt a little cheap, and was also slightly tight, but looked fine once the dress was on. It was a great change from the fringe flapper dresses that everyone else wore!

Rented this to attend the opera in west palm beach in February when a cold front was not expected. Couldn't wear it sadly. Loved the dress on me, just wasn't appropriate for the weather.

Very nice but runs long
I ordered the 6 but probably could have gotten away with the 4. The slip underneath fit great but the sequin part was a little long, the fabric folded over way more than in the picture. Wore with silver jewelry and nude shoes. Received lots of compliments at the wedding and stayed comfortable throughout the night.

This dress is truly stunning!
I ordered a 2 and a 0. The 2 was not an option because it was too big (I'm petite) the 0 was a bit bigger than I wanted but it still looked great. The dress actually comes in two pieces. A slip and then the dress part. It was comfortable except for under the arm area. The sequins irritated my arms (not enough to not wear it all night). If you are looking for something that no one else will have this is the dress for you!

Not what I ordered but it worked
I normally wear a 8-10 or a large (I am a C to a D cup). So when rent the runway told me that my original sheath dress was unavailable they sent me this one instead- based on the similar color of my first choice. This is not a sheath dress (which I knew would fit me well) so I was a bit disappointed. They sent me a 12 based on my previous size request of a Large for my first choice. Since this dress is already really blousy so the 12 was SWIMMING on me and made me look about 10 pounds heavier. I pinned the top part down to the bottom part so it wouldn't puff out as much and that seemed to help. Like I said- it wasn't my first choice but ending up working enough to get by at a wedding.

At home try on
I normally wear a 6 but saw other reviews it was large so went with the 4. The under slip didn't show like it did on others I think going a size down helped with that and the outside lace of the dress was perfect. Simpler gorgeous dress.

Glam for a one night!
This dress was awesome, super flattering and just the right amount bling to make it special and not over the top. It does run a little large but the 6 was the right length. The 4 would of been ok but it was too short. Love this dress so much, would rent again!

Not great for curvy body type
I ordered this as a back up dress for a Great Gatsby themed event. While the dress was beautiful on the hanger, it was not well suited for a curvy body type. Seemed better for someone long and lean. The overall fit was a bit large as well.

Fabulous Gold Dress!
I wore this dress for my holiday party at work. I ordered a 4 and a 6, ended up going with the 4 but could have worn a 2. It was slightly large in the waist, and in the top. It was a stunning dress, and I recieved a lot of compliments. the detail was perfect. If you are looking for something more "sexy" this isnt it, but if you want to make an entrance, this is the dress! I wore with gold and crystal earrings and nude heels. I'd recommend bronze strappy shoes though. and I tried to wear blue sapphire earrings to add color, the combo worked, but not with my dark hair. if you are blonde, or wearing your hair cup, this might be an option. i reviewed them in another post...they are kenneth jay. enjoy!

Flapper Retro
Once I saw the dress in person and tried it on, I completely understood why so many people rented this dress for a Gatsby or 20s themed event. I ended up not wearing this dress and going with my back-up instead. The dress was not flattering on me. It made me look boxy and bigger than I actually am. The underarm of the sleeve was also scratchy.

I received so many compliments on this dress!
I loved how unique this dress was. I has issues with the slip being slightly longer then the dress itself..perhaps because I didn't have the bust size to fill it. I think this dress would look really good on someone who is well endowed!

Felt so unique and glamorous and got so many compliments!
This was my first RTR experience, and I have been raving about it to all of my friends! Ordered this dress last minute for a friends wedding, and it was on my door step the next day. The dress was in perfect condition and has such amazing beading and detail. I was nervous about sizing online but the reviews were so helpful. Glad I went with the 6 and 8 cus I wore the 6 overlay and 8 slip as they are two separate pieces and the slip was a little smaller in 6. Worked out perfectly! Paired with nude heels and nude/gold jewelry. Very flattering and comfortable all night! Just be careful when you first try on as sequins can scratch your arm. You won't regret renting this dress!!

I wore this to a formal wedding and it definitely fit the bill!
Very comfortable! I played around with the waistline and even though it has elastic, I pulled it down a bit and wore it as a drop waist during my friend's church ceremony and sit down dinner and then brought the elastic back up to my natural waist for dancing! No problems at all with the dress! Quite a few compliments and it definitely sparkles on the dance floor

Stunning dress for any party! Nonstop compliments!! LOVED!
I loved this dress!!! I felt so amazing and was paid so many compliments while wearing this to a wedding!! I was a little unsure if it would be too "light" colored for a wedding but it is not. It is a very light gold/tan with bronzey gold sequins. the slip underneath can be pulled up higher under the sheer layer or lowered, as you can see in the different pictures. The lighting wasnt the greatest but I wanted to show the different ways the dress and sequins looked since i know I had a hard time figuring that out beforehand. If you are smaller chested like me, SIZE DOWN. there is plenty of room in the hip area and i was able to wear a smaller size. VERY flattering. RENT THIS DRESS!! I never wear fancy things twice but, Ive already rented it again for another even I have this summer!!!

Sparkled at the party for sure!
Wore this to my boyfriend's surprise party. This dress fit wonderfully! The slip underneath isn't attached, so you can raise it up or pull it down. The sequin overlay doesn't have much give, but I still was able to wear a size smaller than I usually do. Perfect for a 20's party or a Great Gatsby themed party. The elastic hits at the waist and can create the illusion of a larger midsection, but you can pull it up higher or lower depending on how you want to wear it. Awesome dress...I will use RTR again!

Perfect amount of glitter for a Vegas 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!

This dress was amazing! This was my first RTR dress and now I'm addicted! I want to own this dress!
It was a great dress. It ran a little large but it was my fault that I didn't order it in time and did not get to try my other additional size. The dress was extremely comfortable and easy to wear for an outdoor fall ceremony and indoor reception. The color was amazing!
