The look on my husbands face when he saw me in the dress

This dress fits like a glove. It did fit a little tighter than expected but I'm glad I was able to get two sizes . I got a small and a medium but the medium is what I wore to the holiday gala that I attended. I received many compliments on the dress throughout the night. This dress definitely shows off your curves so I will say that if you have any belly fat just know that it will show the bumps and lumps. The low back makes it hard to wear any sort of full coverage spanx or girdle so if you are on the thicker side I would suggest sizing up. All in all the dress was very comfortable and easy to dance the night away in. This was my first RTR experience and it was lovely . The packaging was so professional and the dress was beautiful!!

The right amount of sexy and classy

I rented this dress for my husbands holiday party and it was definitely a dress I wouldn't normally pick for myself but I enjoyed wearing it and it made me feel sexy. It's very fitted - I normally wear a size 2 or a 4 and the small fit perfectly. The only thing that was a bit weird was the length of the sleeves. They were really long on me so I had to tuck them under. I'm petite up top, so I think if I had broader shoulders it would have been fine. This dress is short, but not so much that you'd have to wear tights or something, although if you plan to do much walking around in it, you'll be pulling it down all night. You really can't wear a bra with this, and if you wear spanx, they can't be the full coverage ones since they will come up too high and peek out the back. This dress is not scratchy at all but the sequins do get caught on each other at times when your arms are down at your sides. It's a thick, warm dress, especially since it has long sleeves so it was perfect for our Christmas party!

Sparkled on my 30th birthday!

So glad I chose this dress. The fit was nice and comfortable. I also liked it wasn't itchy, which is how some sequined dresses can be. The small fit, but I have a more muscular frame and felt better in the medium. It was definitely still form fitting, which is what I wanted. The blue color also has hints of black, so black pumps were a great match.

Just enough glitter for the holidays

Loved the low back and the long sleeves. I wore this to my husband's law firm holiday dinner and it was perfect! Conservative enough but sassy enough to be fun.

I'm wishing I could keep this dress

This was one of the most flattering dresses I've ever worn. The Xs fit me perfectly. I wore this dress to a NYE wedding and I received multiple compliments throughout the night! This was my first time using #renttherunway and I can't wait for another reason to rent again!

Loved this dress! Wore for NYE and got so many compliments. Felt beautiful all night!

I was almost 16 weeks pregnant so the large ended up fitting better. The back is low so I didn't wear a bra. Heavy fabric, so don't plan to wear this to a warmer event. Overall loved this dress!! Fit great! Material is somewhat stretchy so it has a little give.

Amazing Dress!

I love this dress! I wore it on NYE and received so many compliments from both men and women throughout the night! It was surprisingly comfortable (for a sequin dress) and was easy to dance in all night. The inside lining was very soft. My only two recommendations would be to wear a sticky bra (or go without one) and to wear your hair up! The night I tried it on, my long hair kept catching in the sequins. Perfect dress!

Great NYE dress!

I love this dress and would definitely recommend it to others. It was a little tight fitting, so I'm happy that I got the medium. I'm small on top, but bigger on the bottom. It didn't ride up too much while dancing and I felt confident and pretty in it!

Perfect for NYE!

I am in the middle. This dress fit perfectly and was very flattering. I have never worn a full-sequin dress because I have always felt it adds too much bulk for my midsection but not true for this one. I felt confident! Definitely lent to a festive feel for the evening. Highly recommend.

Loved this for a red carpet event!

I'm 5'4" and a 34A, both the XS and S fit, but the XS was a bit better in the shoulders and under my arms, since I have a small chest. I had to buy a backless/strapless bra to give myself a little shape upfront, otherwise it would have been lost in the sequins! It was short and tight but not uncomfortable. It was great all night!

Gorgeous!

I wore this to a black-tie optional event. The color was beautiful, the dress was very well-made and extremely comfortable. The dress had a thick lining so that the sequins did not irritate at all. I did not find much difference in size between the extra small and small, so I wore the small because it was just a bit more comfortable. The open back was stunning, and I would rent this dress all over again.

Sparkles without being over the top

Loved the way this dress sparkled. It was sexy without being over the top and the low back made it a nice surprise. You cannot wear a bra with this but the material is thick so nothing shows through it. It's not extremely short and I didn't have to keep tugging at it all night thinking my backside was going to peek out. For having sequins it's comfortable and not scratchy, my only downside was that the arms were sooooo long, so it was scratch on my wrists and because it's tight it's extremely hard to pull it up on your arm. All in all I felt amazing and it was a great dress for the event

STUNNING

I'm usually a 2 in dresses, and I felt like if I were the slightest bit bigger this wouldn't have fit. The small was nice but I probably could have worn a medium. I'm 5'2 and 120lbs (lean and muscled.) The sequins are beautiful and I LOVED the cut of the back. Not itchy, didn't ride up, and overall a good choice.

The dress felt tight when I put it on but not from being too small it's just a snug fit. It was really comfortable though! I loved this dress and I wish I could keep it :)

Everybody was complimenting my dress all night. I simply loved it, in my favorite color Blue :)

Perfect fit, it's a little stretchy. You can't wear a bra with it, which was a challenge for me but the dress was so fitted to my body that it didn't bother me. It can scratch with the sequences but just have to be careful. I loved how it shined when the spotlight hit the stage. Blue all over. I would rent it again ;)

Great dress just didn't fit me correctly.

This dress is beautiful but it was snug fitting. The arms were way too long, ultimately I was uncomfortable so I ended up returning it.

Great Vegas Outfit

This dress was great! I ordered a S and a M because some reviews said the sleeves were really tight. The reviews are true but I wore the S anyway and didnt even try on the M. I wore a backless bra but probably could have gone without one. The dress is lined which was great on a night I probably could have used a jacket but didn't want to carry one around or cover up this dress! I'm about 5'8" - 5'9" and felt like the length hit perfectly, not ridiculously short or too long. Would recommend this!

Easy rental/drop off at the Cosmo store in LV.

Fit ok. The back opening is wide and low so it tends to come off your shoulders a bit. Still sexy and fun.

Showstopper! Perfect for Red Carpet!

The dress fit beautifully! I am usually really self conscious about going bra-less with dresses since I'm usually a 34A or 32B but I went braless with this backless dress and it was still VERY classy! I got a lot of complements on this dress. The sparkles were perfect!

Gorgeous color, perfect fit, stunning all around!

I can't find a picture of myself in this dress right now but trust me, it is OUTSTANDING!! The color was so unique and the sparkles are fun. I got a ton of compliments and everyone loved it. I wore beige strappy heels and diamond studs because the dress pretty much does it all for you. Slate and Willow is ALWAYS the perfect go to for me. I will rent this dress again, for sure.

Pretty dress for friend's rehearsal dinner

Had to wear a M for length because I'm 5'8" despite the S being a better fit overall. Dress feels a bit scratchy on, but it is pretty. Received many compliments. Overall a good option for the price.

This dress was PERFECT.

Absolutely LOVED this dress. I got compliments all night long and it was comfortable to wear all night. I didn't get too hot in it either. I went with the XL to give more bottom half room and length. Overall wonderful dress!

I got compliments all evening!

The size large fit me, but it was a little tighter across the tummy than I was comfortable with. I ended up wearing the XL. It was a little big in the shoulders, but no one but me noticed. I'm 4'11" and I thought the length was great. The arms were too long, but I was able to cuff them under and make due. It was a little scratchy because of the way I had the sleeves cuffed, but otherwise very comfortable. It is more sparkly in person, and was perfect for the event I attended.

Did you find this dress stretchy at all? The description says so, but I rented a different dress for a wedding recently and, though the description said "some stretch", I think they were just referring to the lining because the lace overlay of the dress itself was NOT stretchy at all. What did you find with this dress?

Amazing New Year's Eve

It fit really snug in the arms and shoulders but once I got it on it was very comfortable. I am pretty slim so if you have larger arms it might be a tight fit. The dress was short but not inappropriate. Overall loved it! Got a lot of compliments.

This dress was bold & completely classic. Loved every moment wearing it.

The fit was perfect and was different that my typical go-to of having a LBD. The color of the dress was subtle and not too va-voom as the photo on the site reveals: I recommend going braless wearing this dress or putting those cutlets in! The dress is form-fitting but accentuates your curves but all sucks in the mid-section. Which was fabulous. Sequins are your friend in this dress, there is no worry for itchiness! This dress is short, so be ready to show off those legs! Loved this dress, no complaints.

Perfect fancy dinner dress to impress my husband who loves me shiny... Date night out post babies!!

Way to keep it classy but feel beautiful. As a new momma, I was looking for both!! Not itchy, no ride up, no complaints. Not my typical style, so it was so much fun to wear. RTR's service was spot on once again. Another great experience.

Short and sparkly, perfect for a fun night out!

I rented this for a concert and it was perfect! I'm 5'7 and it was a perfect length. I also rented the extra small as my backup and it actually was a different shade of blue! The extra small was more of a dark royal blue and the small is more of a dark teal color. I thought it was odd that they were completely different colors, but both beautiful none the less! This dress would be great for bachelorette parties or Vegas! Would rent again!
