Sexy. Fun. Slimming.

This dress was fun and sexy. The white was a nice contour to give me a sexy shape. True to size. Didn't ride up. Sequins were not itchy at all.

The dress what just what I expected & fit me perfectly. I got so many compliments on it!

The dress was the perfect length & fit me really well. It's really comfortable too! The only thing I would complain about is the sequins get caught in your hair a little

Fun party dress! Slimming style. Everyone loved it!

The dress was true to size. The material has a bit of stretch so it's flattering. Wish it didn't move so much when I walked I was constantly pulling it down. Overall it was a great dress!

Holiday party dress: Sized up for length.

Nicely weighted fabric. I rented a 6 with a 10 as backup, the 8 wasn't available. The 6 was too short for my liking and thankfully the 10 fit perfectly by giving me the extra fabric I needed for a more conservative length. I generally wear a 6. I wore the sleeves pushed to 3/4 length to allow the shoulders to fit more comfortably.

Just the right amount of sparkle

This dress was absolutely fabulous and I would rent it again in a heartbeat but please pay attention to the reviews! If you're short girl like myself, perfect length! Occasionally I found myself pulling down the dress since I'm usually on the conservative side. I rented this dress for a low-key holiday party it have the perfect amount of sparkle and shine. This dress definitely runs true to size. I did use spanx to create a waist because the dress was a bit "boxy" without it. Sleeve length was perfect. And the dress came on excellent condition. The sequins are very small so if you're looking for something that isn't too flashy this would be perfect for you. The dress was enough to keep me warm but not feeling heavy.

This dress fit great, got so many compliments

The dress was true to size, although the arms felt a bit snug and I wasn't expecting the sleeves to not go all the way to my wrist. The dress is a bit short, so be careful if you have to go to a dancing affair like I did, constant pulling down on the dress. Overall I got great compliments the whole night and loved the dress!

Shape of the white fabric is very flattering!

I absolutely loved the fit of this dress. One of my Concerns was the sequins, which I've found to be itchy on many other garments. The sleeves have a strip of fabric at the wrist that shields your hand/skin from getting scraped by the sequins that are on the sleeves. Overall I loved it, the length I also found to be flattering, although I could see it being too short on a taller person. Highly recommend!

Fun for a special event!

I rented this for NYE dinner and fireworks in DC with my dad. The other reviews said it was short.....and yes it is! The photo isn't that great, because the lighting all night was horrible for photos. But the dress fit fine. The hem at the very bottom of the skirt was very fitted whereas the whole dress is stretchy. So, I had to hike it up a little when I sat down, but I fixed that by wearing black tights underneath (and to stay warm!)

NYE Dress

This dress is great if you live in a cold city for NYE. It's warm has long sleeves and is gorgeous. It hugs every curve. Just beware that if you are a taller girl like me tights are a must! I wore the size 2 and there was no bending over. I wore black tights to hide what could have been a peep show. But the 4 was just to big. The sequins are what make this dress, yet my hair stuck to them on the back all night. Maybe I should have worn my hair up. Oh well, fun night great dress happy New Years :)

I loved this dress! Got so many compliments on it at the Sweet 16 I went to!

The fit is 100% true to size. I wasn't sure at first about ordering it because I am kinda "hippy" but when I tried it on it fit like a glove. One thing I didn't really like about it, is that when you take it off the sequins kinda rub against your skin.

30th birthday party

I think I finally ordered well for my shape and size (petite & curvy); this dress has a great amount of stretch and the sparkle is just enough to be party worthy but not over the top. The weigh of the dress also was great for a cold January night.

Tasteful dress for a night out

This wasn't my favorite rental, but I was still pleased. I wore the smallest size and it just fit slightly off on the upper half. The top is kind of fitted and I felt the shoulders just felt strange. Nobody else thought anything looked off so it was probably just a personal feel. The white is definitely more of a beige color, I expected it to be a little whiter but again, just a personal thing. It was comfortable and very classy for a night out in Vegas!

I felt like a model once I put the dress on!

The sequins were all attracted and none were loose or falling off! (I was a little worried about this) but again RTR delivers the best dresses! It was in new condition and I got so many compliments!! Absolutely LOVED this dress!!

Very cute dress, unfortunately...

I'm between 5'8 and 5'9, long torso long thigh. It would've been indecent to post a picture of this dress on me. The length was ridiculously short on me, I wouldn't have worn this even in my college clubbing days. I was disappointed because the dress Was nice and heavy, with the right amount of sparkle for the event I was looking to wear it to.

Christmas Party Worthy

Lots of reviews said this was too short - as someone who is petite I found this dress to be a perfect fit! The sequins didn't catch on my arms or body or clutch, which was great. Flexible and warm material for the winter!

NYE

Great dress, I wore this for a NYE party because of the sparkles! I ordered a 0 and 2. I wish I would have ordered a 2 and 4 because it was soooo short! The 4 might have worked better just for the length, but overall it fit really well. There is a zipper in the back of the dress, but there is lots of stretch to the dress as well. If you have broad shoulders you may want to order up. It zips all the way up the back which makes it a little more snug.

Way too short

Pretty dress w flattering cream accents... Comfortable and stretchy but so short I couldn't bend over and definitely would be able to dance in this dress. Would not rent again. Worn to a golden globes after party... The long sleeves did help keep me warm!

No give in material

The dress is cute, however didn't get to wear it. I ordered both a 4 and 6 sizes. There is no stretch in the material and it was very small in the shoulder area for me, which caused the dress to rise up to an uncomfortable level. Had to return it.

The dress was gorgeous, but sequins were a pain

This was actually the backup dress I ordered for an event, and wasn't sure if it would fit. The dress has a bit of stretch, but not much it runs pretty true to size. As for the dress itself it does photograph well, and it is comfortable. I only have two complaints with it the first being it would bunch right around the bust area, which was weird but it looked like someone tore the thread a bit so that may be why. Secondly was the dress will get caught on itself my arm kept getting stuck to the sequins on my leg. Other then that it is a preferred dress that will deliver compliments.

"perfect formal dress"

The dress was not as tight as I expected it to be, but it was super comfortable and very flattering. I got a ton of compliments on it and it was perfect for my formal, especially since it was kind of cold! Rent the Runway was so helpful. My dress was not going to come in due to weather issues and they overnighted me another set of the same sizes and it came by 10 am the next morning! I had a great experience and will definitely be renting again!! :)

Beautiful dress. Fabric is nice and comfortable.

Dress runs large, provides a lot of stretch. I have been ordering a size 10 and 12 from Rent, and wearing the 12. With this dress, because of the size notes, I got a 12 and 14.......and this time I could have used the size 10. Other than that the dress is gorgeous, the cream "cut-outs" accent just the right parts. I would rent this dress again, just would size down.

Perfect dress! I received so many compliments!

This dress is so fun to wear! People came up to me all night to ask me where I got it from and to tell me how great I looked. The fabric is very stretchy, which is nice and very flattering. Only problems I had were that it was very short and tended to ride up a bit and that the sequins on the arms sometimes got caught on the sequins on the body. Couldn't be happier with my rental!

a great twist on classic black sequins

really beautiful dress in perfect condition, and i would definitely rent it again. it's the perfect length for 5'5 -5'6, and doesn't ride up. only two cons: if you have a small waist, you'll definitely have some extra room around the middle. this happens to me a lot though, so i don't fault the dress for it. the sequins do stick to each other occasionally. nothing terrible, but it can be a little annoying.

The perfect amount of sparkle for New Year's eve!

It was very short -- more so than I expected -- but worked fine with tights (although wouldn't be appropriate for work). The sequins on the sleeves kept catching the sequins on the dress, which is my one complaint, but other than that, it was great for a New Year's party.

Beautifully Made and Designed

The dress fit a little snug because I usually wear and 8 but decided on the 10 because it seemed to fit nicer. It is very well made and the sequins don't seem to be cheap at all. I don't think a single on fell off! I LOVED the racing strips on the sides as well!

I couldn't wear the dress as planned because it was too small.

I looked through all of the pics and reviews for this dress and I thought a 12 would be perfect for me and possibly even be a bit big. Unfortunately, sizes 12 and 14 were not available for the dates I needed. I was just able to get a size 10 in. It was SO small and couldn't even come close to zipping. It was more like a size 8 or possibly even 6! Starting to think some of these reviews were not honest about what size they wore in this dress and what sizes they normally wear! :(

Great party dress for college reunion!

Dress was flattering to my body becasue I am busty with minimal hips. Its short in length but appropriate for an evening party. You can feel the sequence a little but it was worth the look.

Wedding Inappropriate

I ordered this dress to wear to an evening wedding in Georgia. I read that it ran short but did not fully understand how short. The dress itself runs true to size (a bit tight in the arms) but it was so incredibly short I could not wear it to the wedding. Lovely dress but more appropriate for a night club.

Great Vegas Dress

I wore this dress to Las Vegas for a work event/party. I never wear a size 6 and it fit better than the size 4 so I am glad that I ordered the two sizes. It is stretchy material and it is comfortable, however, the size 6 fit better. Also, it is a little short. If you don't like very short dresses, than this is not the one for you, as I am only 5'4". But, I loved it. It looked great on and I was very comfortable all night.

Beautiful dress for a fun evening.

I wore this to my work Christmas party. Love the silhouette. It is super flattering and looks great in pictures. Like other reviewers have it is kind of short. I would suggest sizing up because it runs small and for extra length. The sleeves were short which I wasn't expecting. Had to push them up to 3/4 length to avoid an awkward length The dress catches on itself some but this wasn't that big of deal for me. Overall it was a good dress and I felt great in it.
