The dress was Amazing
I LOVED this dress, I believe I'm going to buy it. Comfy and flexible enough to dance in all night. Some people had problems with the dress being "scratchy" but I did not have that problem, and if it was scratching me I didn't notice. I did have to buy large safety pins and pin my bra to my dress in order to keep it a little more closed in the front, because my bra was showing a little. But after I put the pins in it was perfect (Wasn't too much of a hassle and you couldn't tell there was pins in it). The dress shows a lot of the girls, so if you're too self conscious or conservative look for another dress. The dress stopped a couple Inches from my knees, was not too short and didn't ride up all night. I'm a 34D, 140lbs, and 5'6"

Gorgeous color and cut dress!
I wore this dress during a fashion week event in New York and I got SO many compliments! The color was not too bright, not too dark, and the sequins didn't scratch too much (maybe a little under the arms but not bad.) I'm 5'5, 130lbs, 34C and could have fit in the Medium or Large (I got both) but I opted for a slimmer fit with the Medium which I thought looked more flattering. It was my first Rent the Runway experience and everything went smoothly! I will definitely be using this service again!

Really fitted but comfy. No itchy. Sexy without showing everything - great neckline and back
Fitted. Almost felt like a light weight spanx holding me together. Accentuates the derrier nicely

Very Glamorous Night Out in Vegas!!
I had to go up a size to avoid my dress from being too short or sexy. My usual size fit but it was wayyyy too suggestive. Overall I loved it and I didn't have any chaffing from the sequins with the larger size. I would def rent again!!

Sparkly and sexy, but not too sexy.
Fit tightly. The front was a bit low-cut for my liking but I was able to make sure nothing was exposed with some tape. I used pasties instead of a bra. It didn't ride up at all, despite being tight. I got so many compliments on this dress and if I had another occasion to wear it to, I would pick Slate & Willow's version of it in a different color to change things up even though I love this color.

Gorgeous Birthday Outfit! Lots of compliments!
This dress was exactly what I was looking for to wear for my birthday. It was beautiful and sparkly. When the light or flash hit the dress it was very bright and sparkly. I chose a size 12 and 14, and ended up wearing a 14 (XL). I was worried about my bust (40 G) fitting into the dress. I ended up wearing a size 14 without a bra. The dress gave good support, and it wasn't too tight where I was uncomfortable. I was able to dance all night long. The dress was delivered on time and the only con was the fabric rubbing against my skin underneath my underarms. I would definitely rent again! I loved the dress!

I "missed" on this dress so couldn't wear it.
This dress is so pretty, but sadly, it didn't fit me well enough for me to wear it. It was a little short for my height and a lot snug. I could zip it, but barely, and it wasn't the sequins fault, if you know what I'm saying. I also didn't have enough bust to fill out the top. A person needs to be larger on top than a 34B to wear a size medium in this dress because a padded bra isn't an option with how low cut it is.

"Just loveeeeeeee me... I want to be with you ayyye"
This was the perfect date night outfit to go see Kendrick Lamar perform in Vegas! I did wear shapewear underneath but didn't have to wear a bra (never happens with my 38DD). Wore some fashion tape just to kept them put and had no issues. This dress was a lot of fun! Received tons of compliments! Only downside was the sequins going to town on the inside of my arms, had a few scratches. You won't regret this rental!

I rented this dress as a replacement after two other dresses didn't work out as planned. I wore the size large and I'm normally a size 8 but also 34DD. The only downfall is that the dress is a lot less red than the pictures

Great Vegas Dress
Super cute body con dress. I wore it in Vegas. I usually wear an XS but went with a S based on reviews. It fit almost perfectly, the bust was a little loose. I got compliments from strangers on this dress.

Wore this for a Vegas Bachelorette party!
Rented this for one night of my good friends Bachelorette weekend in Vegas! It was unfortunately quite tight which isn't a look I usually go for. It was also EXTREMELY revealing. I knew it was v-neck but wow it showed a lot. Overall though, it was the perfect dress for Vegas. I would agree that it chaffed my arms up and down after a night of dancing so I looked quite strange the day after with tiny cuts up and down my arms. The style was a little out of my comfort zone but it still did the job. I do love this brand though, and would definitely recommend. :)

Perfect bachelorette party dress
Fit was great, it was a little tight in the hips so I ended up wearing the S instead of the XS. As other reviews mentioned it's pretty rough under the armpits but wasn't unmanageable. Super comfortable to sit, dance, and walk around in. Probably my favorite RTR dress so far!

Always makes my events magical
Pros: Always delivers on time Dress is exceptional and the image and pictures don't do it justice. It's absolutely gorgeous It has some stretch so I could have worn either the S or the M they both fit well but the medium was a bit loose of my 34C boobs It's a show stopper You don't have to keep pulling the dress down because it doesn't ride up I didn't wear any bra or use double sided tape! It was perfect. Cons The sequins can be scratchy but I was having so much fun I didn't pay any mind to it.

THIS DRESS!!!!!!!!
Absolutely in love with how this dress made me feel! We were a bit fancy for the Matchbox Twenty concert we attended but we didn't care. I didn't think my chest was large enough to pull it off and that I would be self conscious but I wasn't at all (I did wear a plunge bra) Beautiful color and such sparkle. I tried on the medium first an it fit very well maybe only slightly loose around belly but I didn't bother trying on the small. It was thicker material that felt like it held you in. I have my measurements on here because it's hard reading reviews that talk about how it fit them yet they don't provide any information about bust size or weight/height. Like many other reviews the arms were scratchy but not unbearable and I was prepared for it. If you want to feel fabulous rent the dress! Better for fancy event. My best friend is renting it this week for her birthday after seeing it on me!

Perfect Bachelorette Party Dress!
This dress is stunning! I wore it for a Bachelorette weekend in Vegas, and I couldn't believe all the compliments I received! I read previous reviews, and I agree, it runs small. I did however, decide to wear the size small (back up was a medium), because in this dress, I think even though it was snug, it was very flattering. I typically wear a size 2, 5'4", and 115 lbs. Get this dress, you won't be disappointed!!

Wore this to my gym's Grand Opening party and it was a hit! Everyone loved it! I felt amazing in it.
It's true to size. It's very low cut in the front so if you don't like to show the "girls" off it might not be for you. Also, the material is very thick on the inside, keeps you very warm.

Not my usual style, but it was a fun rental. As a busty girl this dress gave quite the cleavage. Otherwise it was generally flattering. Looked more purple than red in person.

Showstopper!
I wore this to a party at BET and it was a hit! I got compliments all night long. I wore the XL and like most RTR dresses, the zipper is tough to zip but it worked out fine. The dress is really form-fitting, but thick and sparkly enough that it shows off your curves and is very forgiving. I am 36 DDD and I was able to wear this without a bra without an issue. Highly recommended. I honestly need to buy this dress because I loved it that much!

Perfect dress for date night!
I rented this dress for Valentine's Day and it was absolutely perfect. I rented an XS and got the S as a back up and ended up wearing the S. I'm only 4' 11'' and was really excited to find a dress that fit as far as length is concerned. I wore a Victoria's Secret convertible bra that gave me support in the deep V. My boyfriend was speechless!

This dress was beautiful and perfect for a night out in Vegas. It fit like a glove. It's great that you can wear a regular bra with it but the fit is so great that no bra is necessary. The color is gorgeous. I received many compliments that night. Only negative is the sleeves were at times scratchy on my arms.

I wore this to a Vegas wedding. It was perfect. It does rub the arm a little but that's standard with sequin dresses. I would rent again! I was afraid too much of the girls would stand out but it was just the right amount.

Dress hugs all curves
The dress was pretty comfortable - I had it on for 12 hours and the sequins didn't start bothering my arms until about hour 10. It is a little tighter than I anticipated. It was nice - but I don't think I'd rent it again.

I wore this beauty to the Backstreet Boys concert in Vegas and it was perfect! It fit like a glove and I was even able to wear a normal bra which was perfect! The only thing I didn't like about this dress was the sequins did rub a bit when my arms were down but it didn't stop me from having a great time! I definitely recommend this dress!

No such thing as too much sparkle!
Perfect birthday dress but it truly fits like a glove. I tried on the large first thinking it was the medium and it fit perfectly so I didn't even bother trying the medium. It shows all your curves so be aware of that.

The dress fit great. I am very busty, so the girls were on display. Make sure to put lotion under the arms where they rub the sequence so it doesn't leave scratches.

Sexy, fun dress!
It runs small but I found that the small fit me better than the medium because I'm small-chested and the bust area hugged me better with the smaller size. I wore this to a club night in Vegas and never received more compliments on a dress. It was perfect for the occasion. I saw some other reviewers mention the fact that the sequins are scratchy and I concur. I included pictures of my arms after a night in this dress so you can see how scratched up I was. It looked like a cat attacked me and my arms burned when I took a hot shower that night. So, if you're able to walk with your arms out from your sides, like a cop wearing a holster, you can avoid the scratching. I'm just not sure the scratches are worth it. I also kept pulling hairs off the dress from previous wearers that had gotten stuck in the sequins.

Perfect Vegas dress
Wore this for my little sisters bachelorette. I received so many compliments. Loved that I could wear a regular bra with it. I definitely went with a push-up because we were in Vegas but with a normal bra the cleavage is as overwhelming. The sequins were scratchy, i'm not sure this is the best dress for dancing all night. It was perfect for dinner a show and some gambling.

The dress was very fitted with little give, but I wore it comfortably through the night. I rented it for my bachelorette party and received lots of compliments. My only issue was it was a little on the hot side since the fabric was thick. I would rent it again.
