I am 5'2" and about 100 pounds (very petite and about a bra size 32b) and was alarmed when the size 0 was too big. My roommate was able to pin it and it looked ok since there are pleats in the back of the top but she pinned about 2 inches. If you are around my size just be warned that the dress won't stay up by itself and will make you appear larger then you are. It is gorgeous though and i got a ton of compliments!

I was hesitant at first to wear this because some of the reviews said it was fuller in the chest and the gold lining was frayed. But it was absolutely stunning! It was very comfortable & the pockets was a nice detail. Not to mention the gold looked amazing in the light. I ordered a 2 and 4 because I had never ordered from RTR before and wasn't sure if it would be big enough. But I ended up wearing the 2 & it came down about 2 inches above my knee. The top was a little loose though but not a big problem. The dress also already comes padded, which I didn't know & ended up spending $10 extra on an adhesive bra that I didn't use. But anyway, I got a ton of compliments. :) Anyone who wants to rent this should definitely get it!

Neither Size Fit
I rented this for my bachelorette party, and I was so disappointed because neither size fit. The 4 ( I'm assuming.. neither had size labels) was much too large in the bust area, and so was the 2. I couldn't lift my arms without both dresses falling. The 2 was also VERY short. I just barely covered my bum. I do have long legs and am up for wearing minis.. but this was micro.. because the dress was so loose, any slight bending and it would have slipped up. I would only recommend this dress for shorter girls with a bigger bust.

so cute
I loved this dress, BUT there were some major problems with it. The framing wires in the chest were poking out on both sides and it was extremely stretched out. I had to safety pin it for my event. But, it ended up being fabulous. I think it was just really worn out. I would definitely rent again in smaller size, hoping the framing was not broken.

Cute but well worn and huge!!!
I am 5'1" so a mini dress like this is perfect for me, but the dress runs 2 sizes to big and the boning was coming out of the 0 and hanging out of the 2 when they arrived. Also, the top was so huge I spent half my night pulling the dress up and had one not so lady like moment. I would not rent this one again.

paper thin, frayed detailing
While the colors of this dress are very beautiful, the material was much too thin for me. I was going to wear it to be in the house party of a wedding and it was not appropriate for the occasion. Would not rent again.

Gorgeous dress! My daughter looked amazing for her first homecoming!
My daughter is a true size 4 but is large in the bust. This dress fit everywhere but was really large in that area. Also, be aware...this dress is super short. My daughter is 5' 4" and her father almost didn't let her out of the house. Overall, gorgeous dress and she said there were a ton of girls with gold dresses but hers was by far the prettiest. And the background color is more cream as opposed to white so it leaves you with far more shoe options.

Dress looks more white than wheat-colored online.
Although the dress is super cute, it wasn't what I was expecting. I ordered the dress thinking it was white and metallic gold, but when it arrived I realized it was a wheat color. I have big hips so it made it a little tight in the hip area, but other than that I really loved the dress!

So sparkly!
The dress was so great for my college's fancy dress! The fabric was beautiful and I got lots of compliments. The one drawback was that the elastic in the top of the dress (which made it so comfy!) stretched out a little, so it started to slip down a little. It stayed up the whole night, it just felt loose!

Loved the way the dress looked online but when I got it, it looked a little cheap and worn. It was also way to big up top.

Fun, shiny dress!
I wore this dress for New Years Eve and the style, color and shininess was great! I read the reviews prior to ordering and saw that some girls said it was large, so I ordered a 4 (my usual size) and a 2. The 2 was WAY too big. I still wore the dress because it is very pretty, but I had about 5 safety pins in it and used fashion tape to make sure it wouldn't fall lower than my bra. I would definitely suggest to size down. Besides the sizing issue though, the dress was fun and beautiful!

Beautiful, but barely fit!
This dress looks great in pictures and was perfect for New year's eve, but it had some problems. I rented the zero and it was way too big in the chest, even with wearing two strapless bras, and I'm not that flat! It was also crazy short. The model was supposedly 5'10" and I'm only 5'7"' but it barely covered my butt. The material was very flimsy and felt cheap. Despite the negatives, with a bunch of tape I was able to wear it and liked how it looks!

I needed a dress that no one else had on and made an impression for a masquerade.
The texture of the material did not photograph the best but i am satisfied with my look

very pretty but runs large
This dress was too large on the bust - I'm a size 32B and it did not stay up. I used tape and it still barely helped. It was also too short for what I was wearing it for. Other than the fit, it was a beautiful dress.

Better for curvier girls
I'm tall and relatively small-chested and this dress didn't fit me at all. Even the size 2 was way too big on my boobs and the dress was too short to wear. I think the dress would look hot on a shorter, curvier gal.

birthday
I ordered this as a back up to have for my birthday. It ran too big however and I never got to wear it. Luckily it fit my best friend who is 5'7 and a size D in the size 10. It is flowy but not overwhelming and the gold looks great with a tan.

Nice colors and lightweight dress...
I wasn't overly impressed with this dress. I rented it to wear for New Year's and it's a good thing I had a back-up dress because this one didn't make the cut. I really did like the color and loved the gold accents, but the material was very lightweight, too much so for end of December in NY. It was also very big on me, I probably could've gotten away with going one or two sizes smaller. I would definitely size down if you are ordering a back up size in this dress.

this dress is beautiful, but it was SO SHORT. i am 5'8", and i wear a size 0 or 2. the 0 fit really well in the top (i even have a large bust) and waist, but the skirt barely covered by behind. i didn't end up wearing the dress because i didn't feel comfortable walking around or dancing in a dress that was so short.

I am 5'2 and weigh 92 pounds. I usually wear a size zero, but a size one in this dress fit perfectly. It was a bit short, but personally I didn't mind. I loved the material and the gold detailing. The pockets were very practical. I wore this to a school dance and I got TONS of compliments. It was a good choice.

I was so excited to rent this dress for a wedding... but wow, this dress is SHORT. I thought that because I am 5'2, it would be okay. But this dress (in a size zero) was still too short. It's unfortunate, since it look so cute in the picture!

Hi Carrie, I can't speak for Erin but I just rented this (in 4R). I wore shoes with a very low heel (1"), and the dress skimmed the floor. Had to lift dress to go up & down stairs. I am 5'6". I think the dress would have been perfect with low (2.5") heels)

This dress was a lot different than what I normally wear, but it's too beautiful in person not to wear!
This dress, it's texture and color, is beautiful in person. You well not be disappointed, I thought it looked so much prettier in person which was surprising! It was pretty short for what I'm used to and I never usually have problems with shortness, but it didn't stop me from wearing it. It fit great otherwise. Not great to dance in though, I felt like the lining was always inching up.

Gorgeous Mini
Loved this dress, especially the print. However not giving 5 stars due to how short it was. I'm an average height and I felt like every time I bent over I was showing the world my behind ;). So I suggest being very cautious... this dress may be better for you shorter gals!

Did not fit right
I loved the fabric of the dress but it didn't fit right. Too short so you could see my butt. I saw the reviews online that the dress was short, but I'm fairly petite so I thought I would be fine. No idea how girls pulled this one off.

This dress is BEAUTIFUL!! I rented it for a law school formal and I couldn't have loved it more. Everyone was raving about it and asking me where it was from, etc. It is definitely short as some of the other reviews have mentioned, but other than that it fit fairly true to size. Nice and comfortable with the gathering in the front - no need to spend all night sucking in your stomach or wearing spanx!! I highly recommend this dress, and Rent the Runway in general!!!

Super comfortable and perfect length! I'm only 5'2" and it went down to the middle of my thighs. This dress has 2 slanted front pockets. I'm a 2, but always order a 4 in dresses b/c of my chest and I wore a 2 in this dress. Wore some awesome gold gladitor heels and got tons of compliments. Great dress!!!

I did not end up wearing this dress because I choose the backup. The dress is very short and the material is paper thin. I thought that it wrinkly or that somewhat tried to iron it and the material had bubbled, however the designer may have intended on it looking that way. Overally, I would not suggest the dress because it's just okay.

I ordered the Size 0 and Size 2 as a backup. The Size O fit better, but I wasn't able to wear it since the boning was coming out of the bodice. The Size 2 was a little too big in the bodice. It is a pretty dress and I received several compliments on it!

This dress was very cute and fit me nicely. I am pretty small, so it wasn't too short on me like some of the other reviewers found, but it is definitly a mini dress. I wore it to my Homecoming dance and received many compliments on it, and it looked great in photos. However, THIS DRESS LITERALLY FELL APART ON ME. There are plastic rods in the top, and by the end of the dance one rod was coming out of the top and another was coming out the bottom...v. irritating. So, watch out for bad sewing on the top. I don't regret renting it though, it was a great dress...the pockets are a plus! Beautiful dress.

A pretty dress, but the material feels a bit cheap, and the cut isn't very flattering for girl who want to show off a smaller waist. Ran pretty true to size for me. The colors are beautiful, but again, was just a little bit off for me in terms of cut and fit. Also, girls with smaller busts should be warned that it's probably best for a B cup and up--the top is a bit large.
