I loved the fit; like a glove! It was a little short, I have a booty, but overall it was very slimming and made me feel like a million dollars. I got a 2 and a 4 and ended up going with the 2.

Beautiful and comfortable dress

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is an amazing dress for a formal event. It is elegant and formal, yet easy to dance in and fitted enough that you don't have to worry about it moving if you're walking around/dancing a lot. There is a cloth under the dress so it's not scratchy or uncomfortable at all with all of the sequins. This cloth is more fitting and the dress itself is a bit looser like it looks on the model. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this dress - it's a great rental!

I wore this dress to throw beads on a Mardi Gras float on Galveston Island and it was fabulous! I got compliments on it all night and it maintained it's beautiful shape and structure all night long after going through three bags of beads and bending and throwing them to people. I stayed in it all night and went out afterwards. Great dress!!!

I wore this dress to a wedding that had a 1930s theme, it was perfect! Because of the sequins, the dress doesn't have much give to it but it was comfortable nonetheless. I got a lot of compliments on it!

Lots of compliments! Very comfy but a bit scratchy under the arms.

Size worn: 14
Rented for: Formal Affair
Fits a bit tight in the tummy area but overall true to size. I'm 5'9" and 185 lbs. was able to fit into the 12 but it would have been uncomfortable all night. Wore the 14 and it was perfect. A tad short but not bad.

Wore this for my 10 yr reunion. I wanted something that stood out, but didn't seem over-dressed or trying too hard. This dress was very comfy to wear and very forgiving for a night full of drinks and food! I noticed the sequins rubbed a little under my arm, but I was never in pain. I forgot about it once the night got started. LOVED the dress and got lots of compliments.

Sparkles worthy of an Oscar party

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Was sent this dress as an emergency back up when a dress I had on order could not be sent. I wanted a dress with some sparkle for an Oscar party and this didn't disappoint! I was initially worried that it would be too short and to young looking, but the scoop neck and back along with the cap sleeves balanced out the shortness and made it feel more comfortable. The size 2 fit perfectly and had enough give to sit and move even with the sequins. Although it was slim fitting, the texture of the sequins made me feel like I didn't need to be on stomach watch all night. Another plus was that my hair didnt get caught in the sequins which as a pleasant surprise :)

Longer than expected, but many compliments

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Formal Affair
I originally planned on wearing a size 2 but it was extremely tight so I had to wear the backup 4. Although it fit better, the length just felt a bit uncomfortable compared to other shorter dresses in the room. Very comfortable and flattering dress, though! I received many compliments on it all night!

Cute dress, but runs small!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress isn't exactly for curvy girls. I have a smaller waist, but hips and a larger chest. I had to go 4 sizes up from what I normally wear to get it to fit correctly. I didn't need to go to a 12, but I felt a little more comfortable with it being looser for a company party.

After watching everyone walk the red carpet, I had numerous people tell me I was best dressed

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Rented for a major grand opening party (cocktail attire). The entire process was so easy and stress-free. Absolutely loved the dress, felt fun and classy--I knew from reading reviews ahead of time that it would be more fitted and not an actual shift dress. Definitely a standout piece, and I was comfortable all night (7+ hours) whether manning the guest list, giving tours or dancing the night away. Both sizes fit fine but opted for the 4 since it seemed slightly more flattering. Cannot wait to rent again. Everyone wanted to know where I got my dress so I had to tell them to try it!

I rented this for a friends birthday party at a bar.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The dress is not a loose shift dress, as it appears on the model. I got my regular size and a size up as other reviewers suggested but both were very form-fitting and unflattering (tight on the tummy= not good for me). I ended up not wearing it because I didn't think it flattered my shape and I didn't want to be self conscious all night. Overall it was a nice dress, it seemed well-made and durable, but not the dress for me. I wish the picture on the model was a little bit more accurate.

I would definitely rent this dress again. It was sparkly and fit really well. The length wasn't too short or too long. Easy to wear (regular bra) and it doesn't need many accessories. I rented the House of Harlow Gold Textured Cut Out Cuff with it and it worked out great.

Really fun dress for a fancy party

Size worn: NONE
Rented for: Party
I had rented this on a whim for a Friday night party, and I didn't end up wearing it because it was definitely fancier than I thought it would be. But I loved the dress and would definitely rent it again for another occasion. The sparkles are a great effect and it was really comfy. It also wasn't as short on me as on the model (I'm 5'6" so perhaps that should have been obvious). It also ran small so size up one.

The 12 was way too small and even the 14 fit snug. Spanks helped a lot. It definitely wasn't as short or as loose as on the model. Still looked good though and I got lots of compliments. I'll use RTR again!

Excellent customer service has made me a RTR girl for life. I ordered this for my bachelorette and was a little iffy on the sizing. I panicked and Tracie of customer service overnighted me another dress as a back up for peace of mind. For free. Runs a smidge small, so I wore shapewear, but overall it was awesome! Will definitely rent again!

While the dress was not as short as it was on the model in the picture, I still felt like it had the right amount of sexiness and appropriateness for an evening black-tie optional wedding. I was nervous with all the beading that when I got the dress there would be some beads missing, etc, but it was pretty perfect. It was a great dress, very comfortable!

Size worn: 4

I wore this dress for a costume party. I went as a Gatsby girl. The dress was super cute and definitely made a statement. I decided to wear the 4 as the 6 hug loose and looked a little awkward. I decided to go with a more form fitting look. Paired it with a gold clutch, black tights and suede booties. It worked perfectly for the night but probably wouldn't wear again otherwise.

Slate and Willow is quickly becoming a favorite designer of mine on RTR. The fit was perfect and straight, just what I was looking for in a sheath dress. There were some other reviews about the sequins being a little shaffy on the arms but I didn't find it to be a problem. I was able to dance all night and was very comfortable in this dress!

Just the right amount of glitz

Size worn: 14
Rented for: Party
I was so glad that I went a size up. I was very nervous even the size up might not fit, but it was perfect. It's quite short, so it might not be appropriate for something like a wedding if you have average to long legs. As others have said, it doesn't fit quite like a shift, but that ended up being fine for me. The quality of the dress was excellent--no loose sequins, hems all in order, perfectly clean. I got heaps of compliments, and I felt great in it! So glad I rented this one!

With this dress you can choose what look you want. For me, I wore the 0, which fit more snugly. If I had worn the 2 I would have had a more sheathlike look, so it really depends what you're going for, because both look great! One thing to note is that it's rather tight around the armpits, which could be uncomfortable at times, and I can't imagine how annoying it would be if I had more muscular arms, or a larger chest. All in all, loved this dress and it's heavy, elegant material! SO many compliments!
