Great Holiday Party Dress!
I wore this to a Holiday Party and loved the glitz and glam of it. I used a sticky bra (love the cut out of the back) and paired it with black heels. Got many compliments on it. I would rent your usual size and for the back up size, I would go up.

I didn't wear it
It was just way too short. I ordered the 6 and 8 and would've worn the 8 for extra length and a little more room in the skirt area, but the top part kept falling forward and was just kind of a mess on me. Didn't seem fun to wear if I wanted to dance and just feel comfortable all night. I would've been so worried about the top falling off my shoulders and the skirt riding up (and it didn't have far to go) and worrying about how I'm sitting just right. It is a beautiful dress - just not for me.

SEXY!!!!! Short.
Very sexy, fits beautifully. Very flattering to those with toned lower body. Didn't wear because it was too short for occasion. But loved it and will rent again!

Great dress!
This was my backup dress in case the other was a fail. Turns out when I put this on, it looked more like a date to a wedding dress, than a new years eve dress, so I wore the other. Really cute though and flattering in the right areas. You'll definitely need pasties or something as the back is very low (probably one of the best things about this dress). I'd definitely rent it again for another occasion.

Beautiful dress!
Great length on me which is hard to find for shorter people. If I slouched a little it would slightly fall off my shoulders so just made to stand up and sit up straight but that wasn't a big deal. Loved the way it fit, very flattering! And the fabric was very pretty in person. Would definitely recommend

Perfect for holiday party!
I wore this to a company holiday party and t worked great. The open back was a nice feature of the dress and it isn't too snug so I felt like I could breathe and walk around. The one thing to keep in mind is the dress is pretty short so be careful bending over!

Super comfortable and flattering dress! Definitely short, but offers a sexiness that is subtle
This was a great dress for my holiday party - silver was subtle, could be worn with silver or nude heels. I generally wear a 6 but size 8 was the only ones available. 8 was slightly loose, but still overall good.

The back was a total show stopper!
I rented this for my husband's company party and the next day, he said everyone was talking about this dress. I loved how it was cut high in front by super low in the back! I'm a bodybuilder so it's hard to find things that fit over my wider back/shoulders so open back is the way to go! The 2 fit perfectly but I actually think I could have worn the 0 to make it a bit tighter. I was a bit nervous that the sleeves would fall off, and I think if it was a bit tighter it would have been better. But overall it was lovely and I'd definitely rent it again!

The perfect dress for my formal Christmas party!
I wore this dress to a formal Christmas party. It fit great. I tried on the 4 and fit as well but made it much shorter so I went with the 6. Overall, I loved this dress, got compliments on it all night. I was able to dance in it all night and feel beautiful the whole time. I wish I could of kept it. I will def. be renting again from RTR!!!!

Great dress
This dress was a total hit. I got so many compliments on it. It's a really nice, I just wish I got a size down. Based on the other reviews I thought I'd be a 4 but I think a size down would have fit better. For short girls-the back might be a little big. Overall though I am happy with my rental would recommend to others.

Gorgeous dress and comfy!
Loved this dress! Super comfortable and easy to move and dance in. I loved that it was conservative from the front and showed a little skin in the back. I'm 5'7" 120lb and the 0 fit perfectly. It was almost too short for me since I wore it to our company holiday party but otherwise perfect! You will get lots of compliments!

This dress was the perfect size. The zipper was hard to get up all the way. Got many compliments! It was hard to find shoes that match because the color is like champagne with silver flecks.

Sophisticated & Sexy!
PROS: Comfy, length (bc I am short), open back and was fine wearing no bra even though I have a bigger bust. CONS: Length (if you are taller), the shoulders tended to slide down --- I forgot the fashion tape that would def help!

Pretty party dress!
Great fit and perfect length for my short frame. I should've invested in a backless bra because it is not super flattering without one in the front. However, I thought the dress was great and the open back made it unique.

Looked amazing!
Rented this in size 2 for my 5'7" 120lb, 16yo daughter to attend a Sweet Sixteen party where, per the bday girl, she has to wear silver. The complimentary second size was not available so we crossed our fingers. My daughter looked amazing and appropriate, she felt confident and received many compliments. Her one comment was that the cap sleeves felt a bit big/large. I thought we may need some fabric tape for the back of the dress; however, there was no gaping. Our first RTR experience was great and we are ready for the next one!

Perfect bachelorette dress
This was such a fun dress to wear for my bachelorette party! Like other reviewers stated, the shoulders did sometimes slip a little, but overall it was very comfortable and easy to wear. The color was also great in person, it had just enough shimmer to it. Would definitely recommend!

Such a comfortable dress and received compliments all night!!
I absolutely loved this dress! I wore it to a formal for my business fraternity and got a ton of compliments. I usually wear a 2 or 4 so I rented both of those sizes. Both fit really well, but I chose to wear the 4 because I knew I would be eating and drinking all night and I'm glad that I did. I was so comfortable the entire night. I didn't wear any fashion tape on the back but I know that a lot of people did. I didn't have to wear a bra or any sort of cups either. It also is longer than it looks in the picture on the model which is great! Definitely recommend this dress!!

Perfect for the 1920s theme!
I usually wear a size 2 but the 2 was a bit loose around the waist so I went with the 0 instead. It fit great but was a little shorter than I expected. I have a pretty big backside which probably made it a bit shorter on me :-) The gala we went to was 1920s themed and this was modern but with a flapper-like flair. I added a long string of pearls and a period hairdo and it turned out great. The dress has a double liner and I did have issues with the shorter liner riding up a bit when I danced but it wasn't too bad. The front was pretty conservative but the back was really sexy. I am barely a B cup so I wore a stick on pushup bra because I didn't want to look flat chested. Overall I loved the dress and got compliments all night.

Loved the look but ended up w/ a 0 when I thought I'd be a 4 based on reviews! read on...
I needed a dress for a summer wedding and thought this would be great, albeit sexy, but classy for an evening wedding. Pros: fabric & fit: fabric is lightweight enough to wear in spring/summer & fit is fitted but not tight enough that it would show every roll, underware line etc. Cons: reviews! I'm a true 2 in designer clothes and everyday wear but because I'm pretty straight (boyish w/ minimal hips, but a booty) the 4 looked large on me and make me think it was just a horrible fit--I never tried the 2 as it was unavailable so in a last ditch effort I tried on the 0 and MULTIPLE friends confirmed I finally looked like a dime piece. This would be a horrible dress for a girl who's very hippy (because the low back will gape, and it's short) but for a straight body on bottom, it's perfect. Also, I have more narrow shoulders so the sleeves would've been big on me had I gone up a size. Moral of the story? TRY CLOTHES ON for FIT!!!

an amazing night
I ordered 2 sizes, and decided to go with the smaller one, it was more form fitting than the bigger one. It was short, but not too short. I wore it to my homecoming and got so many compliments. It is more silvery champagne than the picture shows

Felt absolutely stunning.
This dress wasn't one I thought I would ever pick for myself. Rent the Runway had notified me that a previous customer had not returned my original dress on time so I would be unable to have that dress. They requested that I pick my top 5 dresses as a replacement dress for my Bachelorette party. Little did I know I would received 3 of the 5 to pick from for the evening. This was my least favorite of the 3 received, but ended up being my favorite. Loved it! It's difficult for me with a 32 bust and being larger in my hips and waste to find something that fits absolutely perfect at times. I was unable to wear a bra with this so the top was a little loose and sliding off my shoulders. Overall this dress was fabulous!!

Sooooo pretty! Stood out to everyone that wore black or red!
This dress is amazing! I'm quite tall (5'9) and my biggest fear was that it was going to be too short, but that wasn't the case at all! The dress itself is quite roomy and will come up if you raise your arms or squat too low but other than that 10/10! Received to many compliments. Would rent again!

Perfect for Vegas Dinner
I felt amazing in this dress and got lots of compliments! Wore this to dinner and drinks in Vegas to celebrate my parents anniversary. It wasn't too tight but made me feel like my hard work of working out was noticeable. Wore a sticky bra I got a Target because the back is open. Only reason I didn't give it five stars is the back puckered in the shoulders if I stood up straight (I have former swimmer shoulders). But definitely would rent it again!

The perfect dress for my bachelorette weekend!
The fit was great! I'm 5'0 and 102 lbs, so most dresses tend to run long on me. This dress was the perfect length for my small frame since it runs short. The cut of the waste and the open back were very flattering; I got tons of compliments! A fun dress with just the right amount of sparkle. The sleeves fell every so often, but it wasn't a big deal at all. I can't wait to wear this again!

Fun to wear
Wasn't sure if this was going to be too short since I shy away from short professionally, but for a cocktail-attire wedding this was perfect. It IS short, but it didn't ride up too much. The shoulders slip sometimes (while dancing), and as you can see from the photo, the lining does show sometimes (see right shoulder). But it made me feel glamorous, it was easy to accessorize (I wore gold strappy sandals, though the dress is actually silver and tan; a range of colors would work), and I got lots of compliments.
