Classic and stunning, Jackie O with a pop of Marilyn Monroe!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is stunning. The color and sequins are gorgeous. The simple style is a classic. It was incredibly comfortable, but very clingy and stretchy. I never guessed that from the original model photo. The upside is that there are so many sequins, if you do have any little figure flaws you want to disguise, it's not a problem. The dress hit me right above the knee with a fairly obvious slit in the back-spanx have to pulled up in order not to show.. I was happy that I could find a sequin dress that was a classic, not too flashy but a show stopper. I had a million compliments and was thrilled with this dress.

As many others have said...I wish I owned this dress!

Cannot say enough about how great this dress is. So flattering, so comfortable, perfect for a special occasion. I wore this for my law school formal (with nude pumps and a white and gold bag) and got so many compliments on it. The dress can ride up a bit in the back if you're not careful, and there is a slit, but it's not a big issue. One of the best parts of this dress for the bigger-chested girls is that you can wear a normal bra with it--love that. I wore Spanx underneath also, and had no problems with that. In all, I am so happy I chose to use RTR for this occasion and could not be happier with the dress!

Amazing Dress for 20's Party

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress ran a touch big, but I am used to junior sizing, so that is probably why. My pants size is an 8, so I ordered a 6 and an 8, but I think a 4 would have fit just right. The dress is adorned with many sequins, and is also somewhat clingy, especially in the lower abdomen. The dress really shows off your waist definition, so I wouldn't recommend it for apple body types, as it wouldn't be the most flattering. But, I would recommend it for most other body types.I was able to wear a regular demi bra with this dress, which is a big plus, so no worries with that. If you're kind of busty, your cleavage is definitely very noticeable--just a warning. I wore the dress for a 20's party, and I got compliments throughout the night on this dress.

Beautiful dress - made me feel gorgeous and had lots of comments from both friends and strangers!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I got this in both the 6 and 8 and both fit. As it was a wedding I went with the 8 which hung just a little looser around the midsection and hips. 6 would have been fine too, but felt just a little more sexy than I was looking for at a formal wedding. The other RTR dress I rented I wore in a 6. Depending on designers I am usually a 6, but sometimes 8. I'd recommend two sizes to see which one is most appropriate for the occasion. Wore regular bra and spanx, but had to have spanx leg parts hiked up very high to not show in back (where there is a slit). Would love to own this dress - I could see wearing it across a range of occasions.

Beautiful sparkles!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
My friend asked me to be part of her house party in her wedding, and requested that we wear gold sparkly dresses. This dress was exactly what she asked for. I got compliments on it all night. You can wear a normal bra, and even normal undies--the fabric is substantial enough that you can't see panty lines, and your colorful undies won't show through. It's also got a lot of stretch to it, so it was very comfortable to dance in. However, there were a couple of things I didn't like--first, the back of the skirt has a slit and it is frighteningly short. You can't bend over at all without the slit exposing your undies. Second, the sequins chafed one of my underarms, but I think this is really hard to avoid with ANY sequined dress. Lastly, and this is just for my body type--this cut of dress isn't very flattering to my tummy area. It is not tight under the bust so it doesn't really define your waist, and the way it drapes it kind of emphasizes the belly. Another note--I got the 10 as a backup size, and the 10 was a little more snug, but it definitely fit just fine as well. So if RTR does not have your size, I would go ahead and size down.

Great dress for bachelorette party!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this for my bachelorette party, and it was such a fun dress! It fit perfectly, but wasn't the most flattering on my shape. If you are straight through the waist or have wider hips, this didn't work very well. I needed a belt or something to accent my waistline. Otherwise it was perfect! Easy to wear with a normal bra too!

Dress was comfy. I wore the smaller of the two sizes. Regular bra. A push up would have really accentuated my bust. there was plenty of room in the body. It was not too clingy. I would wear this designer again.

I rented this for a20's Gatsby themed Gala. This dress is a beautiful color and I received complements all night. I only ordered an 8 after reading the reviews and it was perfect. I probably could have ordered one size up for a looser, more 20's style look but it was easy to dress up with accessories. The quality is great and it has a nice stretch so it was comfortable.

I wore this to a Joint Forces Spring Ball where there was dinner and dancing and the dress perfectly fit the occasion. It's pretty true to size. I could have worn the 8 in the stomach and chest area, but the slit in the back made it too short! So I stuck with the 10 and it was very comfortable. Now to work on that tan! ;)

Overall fit: True to Size

I usually wear a 6, but the zipper on the 6 came messed up (sticking out weird), so I wore the 4. I do not consider myself tall, but the slit in the back of the 4 (& the 6) laid funny and was very high up. I was worried about my back-side all night. Also, looking at the pictures, probably should have worn a different bra. I look a little thick.

The fit was great. I'm usually an 8, but the 10 was longer so I ended up wearing the 10. There's a slit in the back which you can't see on the model in the picture. I'm 6'2 so I was worried about the length but it was perfect! I wore it to prom and it was super comfortable. I just wore a normal bar, which was a plus. Awesome dress over all!!'l

This is a beautiful, comfortable, awesome dress. Sparkly and classy. Got many compliments on it, definitely makes you stand out in a crowd. Only con is that it will show any tummy pooch or love handles - spanx are necessary, especially if you plan to eat! The 2 was unavailable, but the 4 fit great.

I loved the way I felt in this dress! It definitely had a lot of WOW factor! That being said, one size down probably would have been perfect. The sides & mid-section of the 6 were a little big on me, but I don't think it was terribly noticeable. I am generally a size 6, but if I were to rent this again I would go with the 4.

Wonderful dress! Best first rental!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Overall the fit is on the larger size. I have very wide hips and a smaller waist. The fabric has a good amount of stretch in it and if I had ordered the 10 I am sure it would have fit but the length would have been too short. The 12 fit perfectly, hugged my waist (because of the stretch) and layed perfectly all night. I was concerned about the length in the back but it was not an issue at all. Insanely flattering and fun. The quality was spot on and it was an incredible first rental. I will be back for more!

This was a great dress. A little bit tighter fighting, low cut, and flashy than what I normally go for, but it was a lot of fun to wear, and definitely not too over the top! I received many compliments throughout the night. This dress will hug your body right. It's very beautiful. I ended up going with the smaller of the two sizes (I ordered a size 8 too) because the fit looked better tight than a bit loose. By tight, I mean fitted, the fabric has a lot of stretch to it. there is a slit in the back to be mindful of. Overall, I highly recommend!

Absolutely loved this dress. Do not let the picture on the model fool you - this dress is hot! I rented this dress for my bachelorette party and it was perfect. The dress is very stretchy so it hugs every curve! My only negative was that it had a slit in the back that hit quite high, almost showing my bottom. I just threw a couple of pieces of fabric tape on to keep it closed and it worked like a charm! If you are looking for a fun, sexy dress this is it!

Perfect for a bachelorette party!!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This was the dress I chose for my bachelorette party. It was my first rental and I was so happy with this dress. RTR did not have my usual dress size so I couldn't get a backup but this dress fit me perfectly in the size below (I'm in between sizes now). It was form fitting, not too low in the front, and fit like a glove, showing all curves. The dress is long enough (just above knee for me - I'm 5'2")..the only caution I have is for the slit in the back. If you bend over too much, things can be revealed. But it ended up being fine! I got TONS of compliments and I sparkled all night long while at dinner and dancing with my girls! I wish I owned this dress!!!

Great dress!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I'm usually a 10 or 12 and the size 10 fit great. The length was great (hit just above knee) and it showed a tough of cleavage without going overboard. It was fairly comfortable too. I was afraid the sequins would irritate my arms by the end of the night, but had no problems. Since there wasn't much structure through the middle of the dress, it wasn't the most flattering cut for my shape, but I did still feel great in it. I've got a pretty big bust (34G) and it fit my bust well and I was able to wear a regular bra with it (major yay!). The gold and sparkle was awesome and not too overpowering. Paired it with nude pumps, a navy wrap, and navy drop earrings (and in the picture, a groomsmen's gold tie). Two things that kept me from giving it 5 stars: I wish it had the little clasps in the sleeves to hook around your bra straps to hold them up, and some spots on the dress were a little sparse in the sequins, showing the wear a bit. Once it was on, it wasn't noticeable, but I could tell when I had it laying flat before putting it on.

There's stretch and give with the dress, though you'll want Spanx to smooth things out. Love that you can wear a normal bra. The 8 fit fine...but the 10 allowed for breathing and dancing room. A small piece of double stick tape kept on the cleavage to keep my Spanx's from showing. Paired with the suggested Nicole Miller Teardrop Pearl Earrings and they looked gorgeous together.

I rented this dress as my back-up dress for my wedding reception. I wanted to have something on hand, in case I got tired of wearing my gown and all the undergarments. When I received this dress from RTR, I knew I had to have a wardrobe change! I loved it! I was true to size, and comfy, with just the right amount of stretch. I received so many compliments, and it was just the right sparkly addition to the end of our wedding reception.

This dress was perfect for my friend's Gatsby themed Graduation from Law School party!

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Party
I am usually a 4 or 6 in dresses. I chose the size 4 because I am 5'3" and the size 6 was looser and bunched up on me. If you are shorter in your torso or from your shoulders to chest (like me and my specs are wrong I am a 34 DD and still had to go with a 4) you may have to go with your smaller dress size so make sure to order a backup size when you order this dress. Other than that it was perfect for the occasion I wore it too and absolutely gorgeous!!
