This dress was perfect! I usually wear a 6 but the dress is short and I liked the looser fit of 8

I got a ton of compliments!!!

So comfortable and fun!!! Great NYE dress!

Runs large! 10 was the only size available and it was really big but still worked great with tights! Loved it!

Wore this dress to my birthday party in Vegas and it was perfect!

It runs slightly large but is a very flattering fit. It felt loose without feeling too baggy and the length was perfect.

Perfect dress.

I absolutely loved this dress. I think the dress is a bit on the short side so sizing up is good.

Extremely comfortable and fun!

I had ordered the 8 and 12 (10 was not available). I felt a little more covered in the thoughts in the 12 but it wasn't baggy. I wore it with tights and over the knee boots which made it even easier to be comfortable without exposing myself :)

Super comfortable

This dress was great. Unlike most sequined dressed- it was not itchy or scratchy against my skin. I wore this with tights and booties. Would have been great with a nice bib necklace - but mine broke the morning of the event. This dress was simple and comfortable yet classy. I rented the 10 and the 12 and saw virtually no difference between the two. The 10 seemed to be a little bit longer so I went with the ten. There was a little sign of wear - lose strings and the lining kept slipping out and showing but I was able to fix that with a lot of double sided tape.

I'm normally a size 4, but I went with the 6 because I am four months pregnant. It was very comfortable, easy to move and dance around in. I got compliments all night!

This was my first RTR experience , I was impressed how easy it was. I would definitely do it again

I wore this out for NYE, I am usually a 4 but wore a 2, they were very similar in size. I liked it bc it wasn't too tight around my midsection. Also it was short enough for me which is big bc I am 5 ft tall.

Cute and comfy!

This dress was perfect for a New Years Eve party. It was the perfect length and moved well with me throughout the night. The only thing to note is that there is not a zipper, so be careful doing your hair before putting it on.

It was so shiny and it sparkled which I loved!

Picked out this dress for my bachelorette party. This dress was pretty great but had a few issues. I wanted to wear the size 4 but that had a huge patch of sequins missing on the dress so instead I wore the 6. For both of the dresses the inside slip of the dress showed both at the top and bottom of the dress. I had to wear something underneath the dress to keep the slip from showing and had to constantly push the liner at the top of the dress down. I did love the dress once I found ways to hide those issues. Kinda disappointed with the upkeep quality. Returning was very simple which I liked. Just wish the dresses were in better shape! Hoping my rehearsal dinner dress is in better condition.

Fun fall cocktail dress!

Wore this dress to a work event which was required cocktail attire for our gala. The dress was less like a shift dress, running more form fitting that I anticipated. If you want a loose fit I would definitely order a size up. It was a bit frayed in places, not the best shape of RTR dresses. I did receive a lot of compliments, all in all a fun dress for an event.

Perfect for a Vegas night

Really liked this dress. Fit well. Only things I didn't like were the sleeves. Could have been a bit shorter sleeves and the slip showed a bit when I walked. Dress is pretty short as well. I'm 5'9 and it hit above my mid-thigh.

Great color

I am going with another dress for my birthday, but I wore this for my post party brunch. People were looking at me like I was crazy as I was walking on the street on Sunday morning in the sparkly dress… But I thoroughly enjoyed the comfort and the looks that I was getting! The only downside to the stress is it definitely doesn't give you any shape, so you'll need to jazz it up with some accessories. I chose a great leather jacket, dark tights, cute booties, and finished it off with a great cross body bag.

Eyepopping detail

I really love how this dress photographed and would definitely rent again if it wasn't for the lack of back or side zipper which made the sequins scratch my face and get stuck all in my hair while getting in and out. As others have mentioned the bottom black slip was a little longer than the dress itself which kept me pulling the dress down the entire night to cover it. Overall a really pretty dress regardless, looks a little more blue in person. Go for the larger size! A little stretch but not forgiving.

Great dress, true to size, comfortable, and classy!

I really loved this dress. I was a plus one at a high school reunion and it was the perfect choice. It was great with the weather. Hot Florida heat and I was so happy with the length and comfort. It was shorter than dresses I normally wear but now I'm sold on this style. Highly recommended dress!

Perfect Vegas Dress!

Loved this dress! It was really cute and comfortable. I'm very busty and this dress worked perfectly for me. The only negative was that the slip underneath hung out and looked weird. I just used some double sided tape to hide it and had no issue. Would definitely rent this dress again!

Bachelorette Party

For great! I am 140 lbs, 5'6 and a 38 DD. It wasn't too tight or to loose anywhere. I originally ordered the 8 as my back up size and chose it over the 6 because the inner lining of that dress was showing longer than the outer sparkly layer. But loved the 8 and it was perfect for my event!

Bachelorette party, RTR first timer.

Great fit, very comfortable to wear (wore it for 10 hours). Received many compliments, would rent again. Easy to move in; did a lot of dancing and walking. Length was just above the knee (I am 5' 1"). Hid a "bloated" belly and was still comfortable.

Gorgeous even at 5 months pregnant!

I ordered this dress in a size larger then I usually wear since I am 5 months pregnant with my second child. I ordered a size larger as a backup but the 6 fit great! It's definitely a little short (I'm 5'4) so I wore black tights underneath to keep it a little more conservative since it was a semi-formal dinner for my husbands work. The dress hugged my bump but was very comfortable and not tight at all! Really loved my first RTR experience!

SO SHORT!

The smaller size (8) actually fit better, but it looked more like a sparkly top. I had to run to Nordstrom at the last minute to get liquid leggings to wear underneath. Looking back at other photos, I'm confused because girls much taller than I appeared to have a lengthier dress.

Back-up dress to the rescue

I needed a backup dress and chose this one. The dress was true to size and very comfortable. There were a few threads missing sequins on my dress when it arrived, but it really wasn't noticeable. This was a very comfortable dress!

Semi Formal!

I ordered this for my school's semi formal dance... I'm usually a 4/6. But the size 6 I think was a either a petite size or a messed up somehow. The 6 couldn't even be worn as a shirt it was that shirt. Luckily the 4 was a perfect fit! It stood out and could be dressed up or down. One last think to note is the sequins did get caught in my hair ... so beware of that !

SHORT

This is a beautiful dress that I rented for a wedding but I almost couldn't wear it because of how short it was. I'm only 5'2" and it barely covered me. You will not be able to wear control top pantyhose because the control part will be longer than the dress. Ironically the front of the dress looked longer than the back so I wore the dress backwards and no one could tell.

Fabulous party dress!

I typically avoid shift dresses in favor of dresses that will accentuate the few curves I have, but after reading reviews I took the plunge. I was very happy with the look of this dress for the occasion. However, I severely underestimated how short this dress would be. I am 5'2" and athletic in build but longer in the torso, so I was glad I sized up for my backup dress! The 6 would have passed as a tunic, far from a dress. The 8 was long enough to be a mini dress, but I made a mental note not to raise my arms overhead. The sparkle was fabulous, so I opted to wear earrings but no necklace, and paired with black booties. I would definitely rent this again. This would be a great winter party dress to wear over thick tights.

short, sequin, and sassy

I really loved this dress! It was a show stopper and I got many compliments! It really is a short dress; I'm only 5'4'' and it was legs for days for me. The sequins didn't bother or itch me anywhere. Perfect for a fun party!

WAY too short

I'm 5'9" and based off of the pictures in the reviews, I thought I'd be okay with the length of this dress. Well, I'm not sure if i had gotten a mislabeled dress in the wrong size or what, but this shift dress was a shirt on me. It wasn't long enough to cover my butt, so I had to return it and not wear it.

Super cute, but super short on me

I truly loved this dress, and wish that I had been able to wear for my party. It was very flattering on, and surprisingly comfortable and lightweight for a sequined dress. It was just too short for me- I do have a bigger bum and it barely covered my cheeks. I considered wearing as a long shirt with leggings, but didn't have the place to wear it. Better luck to not so bottom heavy ladies!

Lovely dress but not right

This dress was very pretty but upon opening noted that it looked short. I'm 5'4 and the dress didn't cover my butt. It wasn't tight just the length seemed to be missing: almost like a long shirt rather than a dress.
