Flattering (only for models)

This is a gorgeous dress but unfortunately it's only flattering if you have a totally flat stomach and nice curves. But is probably not great if you have a huge chest. This is also great if you have a nice back that you love showing off. Alas I wasn't thin enough to wear it so I didn't.

SHOW STOPPER

Seriously have people I haven't talked to in years messaging me about this dress... it's gorgeous! Definitely get spanks and a sticky bra. It's true to size, but just a little clingy in the front. The beading scratched my arms, but if you're not dancing too much it wouldn't be a problem.

The dress was beautiful. It fit wonderfully and I felt like a movie star.

The fitness great. The dress hugged all the right places well. I ordered a 4L because the 4R was unavailable at the time and it was rather long for me. I'm 5'7" and wore 4 inch heals and still had to hold up the dress.

I received so many compliments tonight at this annual charity event we go to. I felt amazing as well! Couldn't beat the price and not having a dress sitting in the closet I can only wear once. Will use rent the runway again!

I could not have loved this dress more! It was perfect!

The dress fit perfectly and it was the perfect length for a 2 inch heal. I received so many compliments as the back of the dress added an amazing drama to the dress. I even had the president of the organization that put on the gala come up to tell me I had the dress of the night! It was perfect and I felt absolutely glamorous for the night!

Gorgeous gold gown, made for a goddess

I was really excited about this dress, and it was stunning. I picked a length I knew might not work for me just so I could possibly fit into it as my 4R wasn't in stock. Sad that a 4L wasn't gonna really sense to wear around a ball. I would definitely rent again when the right size is available. The sequins have a beautiful luster, and isn't too shiny and obnoxious. Break-taking, simple back cut out.

Beautiful dress! Got a lot of compliments. Only con was I needed the 6r but only had the 6l so being 5'6" with 4in heels the dress would get caught up.

Lots of compliments

Third trimester of pregnancy, I was really worried the dress wouldn't fit but it fit very comfortably due to the stretchy material and style. Got compliments all night on how beautiful I looked. I'm normally a 0-2 120lbs 32 DDD, currently 150lbs pregnancy weight 34 E/F got a 4L.

Pretty dress

I'm 5'10" and wore flats and it was long enough where just the front of my shoe was exposed. Scratchy under the arms but that's to be expected with sequins. Overall it was great for a gatsby black tie encouraged wedding.

Runs big!

I rented this as my backup dress but it was too big! I got the 2P and 4P but they were both way too big. I think I would've been ok with a 0P but I didn't think to rent that size since I'm usually a solid 2. The fabric is stretchy and thick so if it's a bit too long it's going to look sloppy. Very glittery and sparkly though. Wish it would've worked out for me!

Shows Figure

My friend help me decide on this dress. I would have preferred a 0R, but the only sizes available during my rental period were P & L. I am 5'5", approximately 115lbs and was able to wear the 0P with flat sandals. Many people commented that they liked my dress, but after seeing one picture of myself in it I was very self conscious. Hopefully, it is the way camera lighting catches the dress; otherwise, everyone could see my 32A chest and matching ribs the whole night. If I was to wear the dress again I would definitely wear more than adhesive nippies. The lining of the dress also kept bunching up? I do not have a lot of experience wearing formal gowns so I'm not sure if that is common or if I should have gone up a size for a loser fit? Overall, I would rent again as long as a 0R was available.

Feeling like a princess in all the sparkles!

I loved this dress! I wore it to a Mardi Gras ball & it was perfect. I ordered a size two and size zero petites & the zero was just right with the flats I wanted to wear. I'm 5'6 & weight ranges between 120-125. There was plenty of give for dancing & I got so many compliments throughout the night! Return was easy too. I'll definitely order again!

A waste of money.

I'm a busty woman and usually wear a 16 in formal gowns. Not only was it to big but the sequins from the dress was scratchy under the arm area. I ended up having to buy a dress from a department store

Showstopper

Rented for a charity gala. Amazing dress, tons of compliments. Moved well, and allowed me to dance. A little hot, but probably because the venue was outside. Definitely will rent again.

Pretty dress, not for short people or dancing

I wore this to a gala- I'm short so renting a gown that's not a short was risky. I looked great in pictures, but it was way too long and hard to walk with the dress dragging let alone dance. Throughout the night the sequins rubbed my arms raw so that was not Fun at all. I had to borrow a friends Shaw to use as a barrier. It's pretty though, just consider the type of event.

This dress!! Old Hollywood glam!

Beautiful dress, certainly a show stopper that got tons of compliments all night! Make sure to invest in proper bra/undergarment because the open back is a dramatic dip CONS: the sequence material gets a bit uncomfortable throughout the wear (left scratches)

Bold in Gold

I got this dress to wear for a photo shoot to celebrate my birthday. It was super flattering and I love the drop down in the back. It was a bit shorter so more of my shoe showed than I would have liked but other than that it was a great choice.

The dress was perfect and I received soo many compliments! Very comfortable yet stunning

Only needed a kitten heal which was perfect because I'm not the best at walking in high heals plus my boyfriend is short. Definitely a dress for many occasions. Worked out great for our Great Gatsby themed party!

Great for any formal events

The dress shines elegantly and I really love the shape. I got so many complements and I felt regal. It does scratch a bit since it's a sequin dress. But not too bad. It is a bit heavy also. But overall it was a very pretty dress and I would rent again

Bell of the Ball! (heels required if you're short)

Gorgeous dress! Rented the 0P for a charity event that my group hosted. So many compliments! *Be aware - if you're short (I'm 5'2 and 96lbs) this dress will be long on you. I'm wearing 3in heels in this photo. Other reviews noted that it rubbed against your skin under the arms which was true after a while, but that's just part of wearing a sequin dress. Wasn't bothersome. Definitely renting again!!

runs a bit loose but love it!

i usually wear 4 or 2 depends on the style/cut, in this case 4 is loose and i have to use pins to make the strap shorter. if i got the chance i would try 2 as well.

Beautiful dress and I loved how it fit very nicely! very easy to get into as well

Pros are it’s beautiful and shiny cons are that if you have sensitive skin (I don’t but the maid of honor did) then there can be some uncomfortable chafing from your armpits where the sequins rub against the skin a bit.

I wore this gorgeous dress for a Gala. It was perfect for the occasion!

So I am about 5'5" and weigh around 146. I wore 4 inch heels. which made the dress just slightly short. I am usually a size 6, but the 4 fit perfectly. Sticky bra is required! The sequins are scratchy, but not bad. Overall great dress.

Ordered a size 4 petite, as it was the only size left. 2 would have been perfect! Straps a little itchy, not too bad. I’m sad to return it!!!

Oscar-Winning Dress

This dress was stunning! The elegance of the high neck paired with the sultry low back and the drama of the all-over sequins makes it truly unforgettable. I felt like a movie star all night! In terms of fit, I'm usually a 2 but this one had some stretch so I went with the 0 for a cleaner look that minimized any gaping. This is one of those dresses that you wouldn't really wear again so I'm glad that I got to wear it at a fraction of the cost thanks to RTR!

Great Gold Color! Long Ball Gown!

My girlfriend and I both wore this dress as bond girls for a James Bond themed Galla. The dresses were amazing, and we received complements on it all night. I am 5'7" and generally go for the long size I am glad I didn't with this one though. Even with 6" heels on it was still only barely out of range from being stepped on. She is 5'9" so we did opt for the long on hers a size 2L. This was even to long for her with 6" heels on. Also due to the open back a bra is difficult, but I found the adhesive bras from Victoria secret to work very well. She just found a bra with a really cute back that blended with her hair and that worked well also.

Great for a Gala Event!

I am 5'4", about 118lbs and I got the 0P as well as the 2P as my back-up. I went with the petite because I was nervous the regular would be too long. Being 5'4", the petite size works well if you are wearing flats, but it would have been short if I wore heels. Normally I wear a size 0, and the 0P fit, but it showed every bump. I ended up wearing the 2P since it was a little more forgiving and still fit well. Since the back is open, I got a sticky bra and that worked perfectly. Overall I really enjoyed the dress and it worked great for my Gala event!

Black tie gala at 20 weeks pregnant

Pros: Fit well, easy to wear a sticky bra with, and stretched enough to comfortably fit a 20 week pregnant baby bump. Length was great for me at 5’7” to wear normal, non-platform strappy heels. Cons: Neckline collar kept rolling to show the liner, and I felt like the draping on the back hung just low enough that it hit the spot to make it look like I had no curve to my lower back and just looked wide. Probably more evident to me in photos than in real life, but still not my favorite feature. Not a deal breaker, but not as flattering as it could have been. Also- great dress for sitting and chatting, but if you’re going to be dancing the night away, be warned that the sequins will rub the underside of your arms!

The dress fit great! I got compliments throughout the night, and I felt so glamorous and beautiful.

The only thing I didn’t like was that some of the sequins were missing. I don’t regret getting this dress though. Overall, great dress.

Very comfortable dress - expect a lot of compliments when you wear it!

The fit is very form fitting, which means the dress shows every curve you have. The long version of the dress is very long- I probably could have worn the regular fit instead. The tricky part about wearing a dress with sequins is that it snags on everything.

Perfect fit. I’m 5’5 and the back dragged a little but otherwise perfect. Would suggest wearing a no show bra since there are no cups in the dress. Loved it!
