Stylist Review

This dress wasn't super heavy for an all-sequined dress! Definitely dance-able! It was the perfect height, just grazing the ground, at 5'5" with about 3" heels. You can't wear a bra with this gown because the back is a low V. I'm typically between sizes 8 and 10, but the 8 was actually a little big! I'd recommend sizing down if you're in between. It was really stretchy though, so that helped! It also made it super comfortable.

It was my 40th birthday and we went to a masquerade ball! Lots of friends, booze and dancing! ;)

The dress is beautiful and fits comfortably. It does run long, I'm 5' 1# and wore 4 inch heels and the dress still pooled around my feet. I had to have it temporarily hemmed which cost more than I intended. Also, note there's no built in bra or support of any kind and you can't wear an everyday bra with the dress. Finally, the undersides of my upper arms the next day were rubbed a little raw from the sequins. I did, however, get lots of compliments. The dress is like liquid.

This dress looks and feels very fancy, but the stars are a surprise twist!

I picked this up in-store for a formal Halloween ball. It runs a bit large- I'm usually in the 10-12 range and wore the 10 comfortably. It's a very gorgeous dress and is surprisingly light and comfortable for something completely sequined! RTR has some Ben Amun accessories with stars on them that I rented that made it a fun but fancy themed outfit, too.

Beautiful dress. Great costume.

I rented this dress for a Halloween party. Hard to say if I got the perfect fit since what was supposed to be my "back up size" was actually a completely different dress for some reason. The 6 fit well enough. The dress is high quality and gorgeous. It also moves well and isn't constricting. I had a blast dancing in it all night.

So fresh, too stretchy

Usually I wear a 2 or 4 , the dress had a beautiful cut but two swallowed me. A 0 might've worked. Didn't end up wearing

I was emceeing an event celebrating "the stars" of a company

This was pretty true to size but it was definitely a looser 6, perhaps because previous wearings had stretched it a bit. However, I got tons of compliments throughout the night.

Slayed the Red Carpet

This was a beautiful sequined dress that fit like a glove. It was easy to zip up on my own and it definitely made a splash at the Film Festival I rented it for. If you have big breasts it helps to tape them. The straps were a little loose but nothing too crazy.

Simple and elegant. Everything i was looking for.

Con , i am a 36 DD and could not wear a bra because the back is cut very low. Other than that i thought it was an amazing dress. Easy to pull up and zip up. I felt amazing in this dress. Got alot of looks. It was a last decision in store. Had to return my first order. Was not disappointed.

Felt like a star! So many compliments!

The fit was right on the money and was not so tight that you felt uncomfortable. Has a nice slightly stretchy feel and is not too heavy for sequins. The dress hugs curves! It was stunning and I got compliments all night long. I would rent this dress again in a heartbeat. I wore a stick on bra due to the low back.

the delivery was later and I couldn't wear this dress to the party I planned to attend.

It's so comfortable! Might need to wear some dress tape or convertible bra because the back dips lower than I expected. The dress is pretty stretchy and comfortable, I LOVE the flattering boat neckline.

New years eve dress

Well fitting dress - i sized down from my normal size 8 after reading previous reviews and it was the right move. The dress has some stretch to it and glides over the body and isnt too heavy even with the seqins. The length in the long was good for me at 5'10" with low heels (~2"). I really liked the neckline with the open back but i did start noticing a little discomfort on the inside of my upper arms after a few hours but not as bad as some dresses with sequins Ive worn. Also uncomfortable was the spot where the zipper/closure hit my back - might just be me and where it hit me.

What a beautiful dress to ring in the New Year!!!!

Pros - Gorgeous material, comfortable, easy to move in, looked great on stage! Many compliments about the dress. Cons - Low back would entail a different bra or straps (If you feel the need to wear a bra as I did!) and the "regular" was a bit short I found....I am 5'5 and I wear very low heals being on stage all night. I felt it was JUST perfect....any higher of a heal would have made the dress a bit too short.

So much sparkle!!

The fit was great, and the dress made me feel very Old Hollywood! The sequins ended up bothering the inside of my arms as the night worn on, so fellow sensitive skinners out there beware! But in this case, worth it!

Super Star

This dress is beautiful, and the while the silhouette was flattering, I didn't like the way it highlighted my arms (a current area of discontent.) The sequins are a tad itchy, but the dress is a showstopper. Will try again when I feel more comfortable with my arms.

I ended up finding something out of my closet and put together a fabulous look.

I didn't end up wearing this dress. It wasn't long enough for me (I'm 5'11") and even with the long option it didn't quite work. I wanted to love this dress but it just didn't feel right and I wanted to feel amazing. Quality of the dress was fine. I didn't love the look for me...felt more prom, than classy adult New Year's party.

Gorgeous dress! Made a big impact at a vintage circus themed NYE party!

I was going to order a second size larger but turns out I needed a smaller size. I wear size 6 but I have a bit of a belly so I was worried. However, it is a very large 6 and I would have probably preferred a 4.

IdeallWore this to a black tie, evening wedding in the winter.

Ideally, I would have needed a 0L but the dress isn’t available in that size. I’m usually a two so this dress runs small. The 2L was way too big for me. The length was perfect but the dress gaped pretty much everywhere. I tried the 4 on in the RTR store and it felt the same as the two where as the zero was actually snug around my shoulders. Notsure how this sizing adds up since the 2 felt bigger than the four. Otherwise the dress is beautiful

Perfect touch for a special event

I volunteer with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and I wore this for our annual "blue tie" gala fundraiser. Stars are really big with MAW, so when I saw this dress I knew it would be a classy but fun touch. I got SO many compliments! It fits true to size, and the material is stretchy. I always worry with sequined dresses that they'll itchy under my arms, but this dress didn't itch at all! I will say that it isn't that long, so I went with a shorter heel than I normally would.

Beautiful, flattering gown.

Other reviews said this dress ran large, and it definitely did- the 10 was a little big and I probably could have fit the 8! The 10R was just skimming the floor for me barefoot and I am not tall, so if you plan to wear heels, I'd go for the L. It was a little scratchy under the arms, but nothing awful. One of the stars was coming a bit loose as well. Over all though, I LOVED wearing this dress. It felt so glamorous and was easy to move in. For an entirely sequined dress it was pretty comfortable. This was the perfect dress for a Mardi Gras ball, and I hope I have an excuse to wear it again.

Gala Glam

I wore this dress for a charity gala and it was a total hit. The stretch in the material made it super comfy and I didn't even need shapewear. Because of the low back I went braless and you couldn't even tell. I danced all night with no problems.

Show stopper! Not just a black dress! Very comfy and i had fun dancing all night in it.

I wish it was a couple inches longer, but being 5'10 and wearing (only) 2" heels its normal. Other than that it was a really fun dress for a mardi gras ball!

RTR Stylist Review

This dress would definitely make you the star of the room. I found it to be pretty stretchy which made it very comfortable. I am a pretty solid size 14 with a 38DD bust and short only 5 feet tall! This dress ran a little long. Even with 3 inch heels it was grazing the floor, but not uncomfortably long. Would totally recommend for a fun formal affair!

Fun. Fit nicey, a little extra room in the waist but the rest fit nicely. I didnt end up wearing it because the event canceled but I would have. No stars on the back of the dress males it feel a little cheap.

Stunning and Beautiful

The fit is pretty true to size. I felt like a movie star on the red carpet in this dress. You will for sure make a statement when you enter a room. I got tons of compliments on the dress. It was very comfortable easy to dance in and sit down to enjoy the meal. The pictures do not do this dress justice. If you are on the fence with this dress I recomend that you go for it you will not regret it.

Stragers stopped me to say how stunning this dress is!

This dress fit beautifully, I would not recommend it for busty women but for the boyish figures among us this dress is magic. I felt sexy, curvy & utterly feminine. Complete strangers (who were just walking by - not event goers) stopped me to say how beautiful & unique the dress was. I wish i had another event to wear this to!

Perfect for not blending in a the black and white gala

I wore this dress to a black and white fundraiser. I recieved compliments all night. The sequins were not too scratchy. The dress was a little big. It wasnt fitted at the waist and was a little loose in that area. I didn't have to wear a bra and the dress had enough fabric to make that okay up top. I definitely recommend it.

Unique and fun... perfect for a museum opening!

I rented this for an exhibition opening at the Smithsonian where the dress code was "#burningman festive." I created a headpiece and added some twinkling lights (string of led's stuck to my body with bandage tape LOL) and I was stopped so many times by people telling me how striking the dress was! To note: the long is short for a long. I'm 5'10" and ended up wearing flats, because my 2" heels were showing a bit too much. But that just meant my feet were comfy and added to the drama of the flared hemline.

Show stopper gown that made an impact at the Players Club!

Rented this for the Poetry Society of NY gala fundraiser. I ordered the 2 since thats the size I've been leaning towards but had to order the 0 because it runs a bit big. Even with a 5" heel it was longs but the way it moved along the red carpet was gorgeous so I didn't mind. The sequins are a little rough but the dress is comfortable and glamorous! Loved every minute and received compliments all night. Easy to zip and thr dress itself travels well. Fit like a glove! FYI you need a backless bra of youre going to wear one at all. I did not.

3 days till the event and this dress is too big and too long and has an odd bulge!

I rented this for a gala event called "night under the stars". perfect right? not for me. I'm 104lbs, 5'2" and the size 0 pooled about 2 inches on the floor with 4" heels on. also, the back zipper ended right on the roundest part of my seat and awkwardly bulged out, giving my boot-camp booty a malformed shape. maybe it's a zipper / lining issue, maybe I'm just not tall enough for the way the dress is cut. couldn't figure it out. anyway, I hope the other dress I rented from rtr gets here in time and is a better fit!!

A great dress for an "Under the Stars"- themed event!

Fit true to size. Very comfortable with some "give". Length was perfect with 2.5 inch heels. Low back requires special bra for those of us who are well-endowed. :)

This dress is amazing, especially for tall women!

I wore this to a gala themed race to the future. It was fantastic and long. I was in heels also. It looks even better in person. I wore 16L for length but 14L fit perfectly.

Black tie gala-theme was black and white

This was the BEST RTR gown I have ever used!! It was an absolute showstopper! The back is kinda deep-so the bra COULD be an issue, but I went sans bra-and was more than fine! It hugs in allllll the right places!! You will not be disapointed!! Oh, and for the tall girls-with LONG LEGS, you will NOT be able to wear heels-but TRUST ME-you will not care. I wore jeweled flat sandals--and it looked amazing!

Dress fit well! I may have been able to wear a 12. It was a little long even with my 3" heels but I just held it above the ground like a lady. I received many complements.
