It was gorgeous!

It runs a little bit big--I wore the 8 but probably should have worn a 6. The neckline is really flattering and the dress was super comfy. The sequins are pretty rough on the outside but they look fantastic. All in all, beautiful!!

Received many compliments, the dress is very comfortable.

Fit was very loose, I wish u would've ordered a size smaller, but because of the style it looked fine loose!

Unique!

The sparkles on this dress are actually beads, so the effect is more subtle. It's an incredibly classy dress and perfect when you're trying to go against the grain. Perfect NYE dress!

Wasn't able to wear

The fit was perfect, very flattering. I chose not to wear only because I'm not comfortable in short dresses. The only complaint is that the sequined bodice is rough on your underarm.

Great for a night of dancing and fun!

It was so comfortable and perfect for a fun evening. I wore silver sandals with it and no special bra needed. It really was perfect.

Total showstopper in a sea of black dresses!

This dress was exactly what I wanted when I ordered it. Stylish, fit great, so much fun to wear! True to size. I wore black nylons since it was a work function, and the ombré of the dress really worked with black on the bottom! Some things to keep in mind: this dress has NO stretch and a very short side zipper, so be prepared for a challenging time getting it on and off. The slip is not stitched to the top layer so I had to adjust once in a while, and the sequins put a few runs in my nylons. No rubbing or discomfort under the arms though surprisingly! This dress is pure class, I felt like a million bucks wearing it. I DO NOT want to return this dress!

Fancy for formal

I wore this to my boyfriends fraternity formal in New Orleans and felt pretty darn great! I probably could've worn the 2 because it was a little loose and a little long on my 5'2" frame. The sparkles and pattern were beautiful and I wish I could've kept it for myself :)

Having something special and sparkly to wear!

There was a lot of extra room in the chest and shoulders, so I had to keep pulling it up to keep it from showing my bra. Love the design, but I can't decide if the white on top made me look too top heavy, which I'm definitely not.

Very glittery. Perfect for Vegas!

Runs very large. I wear a 6 or an 8 and wore a 4 in this dress and there was still room. Overall fun dress- definitely a show stopper. Fun rental for sure.

I received so many compliments on this dress!! RTR does it again. Can't wait for my next rental!

This fit was so amazing. I considered getting a size up only because the my stomach line was right at the color change towards the bottom of the dress. The sequins didn't bother my arms one bit and I received so many compliments!! This was my third time renting from Rent the Runway and you can bet I'd do it again!! When ordering this dress, order your normal dress size.

Loved the dress!

The dress was perfect for a semi-formal Christmas party! I'm 5'9 and was worried it might be too short on me, but the length was appropriate. Paired it with black heels and earrings.

Such a beautiful dress

This dress was perfect to ring in the new year. I normally wear a 12/14 and was able to wear the size 10 in this dress. I wore a jacket all night so I didn't notice the sequins bothering me. It photographed so well and made me feel elegant and beautiful. I'd definitely rent this dress again! Thank you RTR for always being so great!

I'm glad I had a size up as the 12 was too small. The 14W fit was great. I received many compliments on the dress

Sparkly and fun, but not tacky

Great shift dress. Subtle sparkle. Short but not too short. Loved it. Could have worn the 4 or the 6, but wanted to be more comfortable so went with the bigger size.

So many compliments! This dress was tons of fun!

This dress fit true to size I'm a 14-16 in pants and a L/Xl in tops but typically an 18 dress is the closest fit for my body shape. This was pretty short, since I'm pear shaped and this is a shift dress that makes sense--if your straighter you may not find that to be the case. It was fabulous with opaque black tights and patent leather pumps!

Beautiful dress worn for a 40th birthday party.

Beautiful ombré sequins. Photographs so perfectly. Perfect for women who love their legs. I usually wear a 12-14 but I was able to wear a size 10 in this dress.

30th birthday dress!

I wore this dress for my "Goodbye to the roaring 20s" party and I loved it!! I usually go between 18W and 20W. I was afraid there was not much stretch in the dress and since it was a shift style I wanted to be safe. I ordered the 20W and 22W and ended up wearing the 20W. It perfectly fit the party decor and was very comfortable.

Glitzy and fabulous, while still being understated.

This dress is the perfect dress when you want something a little sexy, while still being a little conservative. The detailing is not too glittery or loud, but definitely makes a statement. Fair warning - it is short! I ended up wearing the larger size purely to get a little bit more length, but I still had to be cautious throughout the night. Overall, great way to be different in a little back dress!

Subtle sparkle - so many complements

I wore this to a rehearsal dinner and it was stunning. I was afraid it might be too sparkly and attention grabbing, but the sequins were more of a subtle shine. Fits true to size, I went a size up just in case, and it was fine since this is a shift shape and not supposed to be tight.

Great formal dress for Apple/Pear shape

I wore this to the Zumba Convention theme party "prom night". My stomach is my problem area and this dress was not constricting and looked good. The sequins scratched my underarm area a little, but not too bad since I didn't get a rash.

Great for a night wedding!

Loved the dress. Definitely fits true to size, has a zipper on the side to help you get in. The sequins didn't really bother my arms but I did have a blazer on most of the night. Got lots of compliments! It's not as shiny in person as it appears in pictures

Wish I could keep it!

Loved this dress! It was comfortable and the sequin didn't scratch! The length was perfect, since I wanted a short dress! Hit me mid thigh. I ordered the 12 and 14 and went with the 12. It was a perfect bday dress!

Super cute dress that really stood out.

The dress was a little too short, but with opaque black tights it wasn't too bad. The lining was slightly longer than the sequin layer, not sure why, but luckily it blended in with the tights. I really liked the matte sequins, and found a pair of matte white stud Kate Spade earrings that were a perfect match.

Comfortable and classy

I rented this for my birthday dinner. The fit of the dress was really comfortable and it wasn't too clingy to the body. I got a 14 and a 16 and wore the 14. I think I possibly could've sized down but it wouldn't have been nearly as comfortable as the 14 was. It gives you a shape without being overly clingy and it wasn't too too short, but im only 5'4". The sequins are nice because they give you a nice ombre effect to balance your body more if you're pear-shaped but they aren't overly shiny so it's not too over-the-top.

Great party dress

Dress felt comfortable and loose fitting- wore for a dinner party. I probably could have ordered a second Size 8 to compare but would have provided a tighter fit. Loved how it looked and received compliments from my friends all night.

Great sparkle for holiday party!

This dress was easy to wear. Good fit, sleeves weren't tight and length was great for a petite girl (5'2"). The beading wasn't scratchy at all. I didn't notice it had a side zipper until I was sending it back for a return!

Brought out my inner party animal!

I rented a 10 and got the 12 as a backup, as I was concerned about my chest not working with a non stretch fabric. I feel like I could have gotten away with an 8, as it was loose everywhere. Not to the point that it looked bad though. I tried the Bobby pin trick another reviewer mentioned but couldn't get it to work. Either way... stunning dress! You have to have confidence to wear a sequin dress with a bold print- so rock it! Hold your head high, jump in the front of the group shots and tear it up on the dance floor! Had a blast in this dress- will likely rent again!

Perfect Parry Dress!

This dress was perfect for my work Holiday Party. I received lots of complements and felt beautiful. I didn't think the dress was too short since I wore black tights underneath, although I did have to pay special attention when I was sitting, just making sure it was pulled down. All in all it was a wonderful first time experience using RTR!!!!

Sparkling stunner

Fit perfectly and was very comfortable. Loved the ombré sparkle. I wore this to a summer outdoor wedding.. it was extremely extremely hot and thankfully the dress was not too heavy, so I stayed as cool as I could in 100 degree weather. Loved that it wasn't skin tight like a lot of the dresses on RTR, nice to be able to cover my belly.

Fun dress!

Fit pretty true to size. I got a size 0 and 2. Both sizes fit, but the 0 was a little tight in the chest/shoulders, which was a little odd since I don't have a large chest or usually have that problem. I wore the size 2 as it was just a little more comfortable in the chest/shoulders. I thought the waist was a little baggy, which I did somewhat expect with a shift dress. I added a ribbon belt and it was perfect. Comfortable all night! No rubbing under my arms on the sequins and they did not catch on my tights. I would recommend!

Great dress

This dress was a back up because my original didn't really fit right. It's not a style I would normally pick and I've gained some weight. But the dress worked great and fit comfortably. The customer service I received was great and this new dress arrived the next day and just in time for my event.

It was the perfect amount of sparkle

Fit was way better than anticipated. It was much more forgiving and has some room to breathe. Of course the sequins hit the underside of my arm but not too unpleasant. Loved the fit, was a good length (I'm 4'11"). Really great dress.

Too short! I'm 5'10

This dress is beautiful and fit well (even with my large chest) except for the length. I'm 5'10 and it was just too short. I wish there was a longer option!
