Very fun and comfortable dress
I love the dress and it was really fun to wear to a gala I was going to. I ordered a 6 and 8 assuming the dress would not have a lot of stretch but it runs big. The 4 would have been perfect but I was nervous to order it given how short it was. It is not as short as it looks on the model given I'm only 5'6", The only negative I would say is that the arms are really baggy and just not flattering...I deleted so many pix because of it and forgot to save one for my review. Overall it was a very fun dress, I'm glad I rented it but would love it if the arms didn't feel wing like at time.

Beautiful dress, but runs really big.
The dress is pretty, but it just looked like a potato sack on me. I ended up wearing the 2nd option dress because it just didn't flatter my figure. I do have sporty shape (aka no hips), so I'm sure it would look a lot better on curvier girls.

I felt very pretty all night and very Holiday like
Gorgeous dress but sequins get caught on things easily. I also felt the dress ran big and the sequins and top layering were heavy making it lose it's shape around the waist line. I had to pull the dress or synch it together when taking photos to give myself some sort of waist line. I know it is a shift dress but it wasn't very flowing like a shift dress due to the weight of the dress. Overall though a gorgeous dress and I love the long sleeves and high neck line.

Such an easy dress to wear and looks so classy. Fits like a tee shirt dress and very comfortable. Some of the beads fell off easily, but nothing major.

The dress runs really large. It was unwearable.
Really lovely, but very big. I normally wear a size 6 dress- 4 if it runs large. The 4 was considerably too big on me.

Great NYE dress!!!!
This dress was very beautiful! The sequining detail was amazing and very well done. It runs large and is a little baggy in the stomach area though so make sure to order a size down. Overall I was very happy with my first RTR experience :)

Great dress for a NYE Party. It was comfortable.
Pros: Not tight, festive, fun Cons: It does run large. People did say I was swimming in it a bit. Dropped sequins all night.

Stunning and super comfy!
I wore this dress for NYE in Vegas and it was stunning. I heard comments from people about my dress and how pretty it was. I also liked it because it is a conservative cut, but the sparkly makes it really sexy. Typically I would wear something more revealing for NYE in Vegas but I would choose this dress a million times over. The dress was in great condition and wasn't super tight which made it very comfortable. If it were tight the sequins would have been bothersome as they tend to poke the inside sometimes, but totally worth the little annoyance.

Perfect for a Winter Wedding
Go down a size! I usually wear a 4 and the 2 fit perfectly. The dress is perfect for a wedding because it's glam enough for the special occassion, but not too tight (more room for dinner!!). Was a little worried about length, but it ended up being perfect for my short stature. Paired it with the Nicole Miller Teardrop Pearl Earrings (not wearing in the picture) and they were just the right compliment. Overall it was a great dress, and I definitely stood out (in a good way). Would rent again!!

Overall this dress rocked
The good: This dress really was a show stopper and photographed beautifully. The bad: the slip underneath was too long, so I had to keep pulling it up so it wouldn't show in photos. I spoke to RTR and they will be fixing this, so this may not be an issue for future rentals. Also, the dress looked a bit worn close up (loose threads). Additional comment: Many ppl who reviewed this said it ran really large and fit them like a bag, so they recommended going smaller. Since I normally wear a 2, I ordered a 2 and a 0. The 0 was def too small, and I think the 4 actually couldn't looked really good. So I think this runs true to size. Also, a few ppl said it was really heavy, and I didn't think so at all. Thanks RTR for a great experience!

Snow Storm
The size 2 was beautiful but I never received the size 4 because of a NASTY SNOW STORM. The 2 was to small to wear because of my bust size also I do have some curvy hips which when I tried the size 2 on; I had to very slowly pull it up on so it would not rip open. I would of loved to have worn it but would of if the size 4 came in. I did see 2 other ladies in different dresses at my event who were wearing & loved their dresses from Rent the Runway! They looked Awesome and I will next time! The dress is a STUNNER!

Perfect for a wedding in Vegas!
Fit perfectly...the reviews said it ran big so I went down a size. When I first saw it in the bag I wasnt impressed...looked a little cheap, but when it was on, and shoes hair and makeup...I give it 10 stars! Lots of compliments! And looks great in pictures.

Exactly what I was looking for!
This is such a beautiful dress. I was very hesitant because I tend to like my dresses fitted. This one is loose overall, but put the focus on my legs. I highly recommend this dress if you want to make a statement! I didn't want to send this one back!

BEST 40th BIRTHDAY!
I wore this for my 40th birthday dinner with my hubbie. I felt absolutely gorgeous. I was getting compliments from people everywhere we went. I ordered 2 sizes the 8 and 6. I tried on the 6 first and it fir perfect, so I never tried on the 8. I'm normally an 8, but it depends on the designer if I can wear a 6. The sequins did fall off a bit and I can tell where it had fallen off on the dress when I first got it, but its not noticeable where others can tell. I'd rent this dress again, I loved it!

It was perfect! I received endless compliments!
I wore this to my sorority's formal. The theme was Fire & Ice, and I wore this for Ice. It was so comfortable! Especially for a sequin dress. The shoulders and the waist definitely run a lot larger than the rest of the dress, and if a 10 would've been available as my backup size that's what I would've worn, but I was content with the 12! I didn't even have to unzip it to take it on and off, haha! Also, you don't have to wear anything underneath...it's not see through at all. I wore a black bra and no one knew but me. This is a dress that could work for anything year round. I would absolutely recommend it!

Wore this for my bachelorette party! You could tell there was some definite wear and tear with sequins falling off, otherwise it was perfect for the occasion!

Wish I owned this one
Wore this on my bachelorette weekend and it is a showstopper. The sequin detailing is beautiful and I received so many complements - I wish I owned this dress. The dress is very comfortable, but could have been a bit more fitted. I would recommend ordering your size and 1 size down since the fabric has a decent amount of stretch to it. It is sexy, yet conservative, and is perfect for a glam occasion.

Fabulous dress for any occasion!
When I first received this dress, I was a little unsure as to how it would look. Looking up close, you can see several of the sequins are either missing or loose. When I got ready and put the dress on, i was extremely pleased with how it all came together. I received compliment after compliment all night. The dress was rather comfortable, but did have instances where the sleeve would catch on the dress and you'd have to pull the sequins apart. Overall, I would definitely rent this dress again - and had a very pleasant experience with RTR overall. Highly recommend!

THE SPARKLES SAY IT ALL!!
I got tons of compliments on this dress!! It is beautiful and fit really well. I actually had to go with the size 10 as the 12 was far too "roomy." And as bigger busted girl, that's saying a lot! The dress is honestly very comfortable and easy to wear, not at all heavy or difficult to move in.

First timer renter! Dress was stunning, and the process was a piece of cake. Very happy customer!!
This dress was stunning! I received so many compliments. Runs large, so is recommend ordering a size or two down. This was my first RTR rental, and I was thrilled beyond belief. I'll be returning again and again!! The rental process was so easy, and the photos of previous customers who rented this dress, helped tremendously. Thank you RTR for helping to make my night one to remember!!

Conservative yet sexy
I rented this dress for a charity ball. I wanted a dress that wouldn't show too much skin, but was still sexy. This dress definitely accomplished that! The dress is very comfortable, but it doesn't have any stretch to it. The only thing that was a tad bit annoying was that the sequins were falling off here and there. The material also snags very easily if you're not careful. Definitely a beautiful dress! I loved it.

I have never been complimented in a dress the way I was with this beauty.
I wore this dress for my bachelorette party. I absolutely loved it! I was so impressed with the process of RTR. This was my first rental. The fit was wonderful, much like a shift dress, allowing me to be comfortable. My only wish was this dress had been shorter (or me be taller). I am 5' 3 1/2" and the dress almost touched the top of my knee.

Felt like a princess! Compliments all night long!!
The dress caught my eye from the moment I saw it on the model. I needed something special for a Studio 54 themed Gala. It was PERFECT!! My only complaint is that the dress arrived damaged. There was a section along the hem that was missing a good amount of sequins. Other than that, the dress felt like it ran big. Surprisingly, it was very light weight and moved well while dancing the night away. Highly recommend this dress for any curious renters!! Thanks RTR, you made my night a success!!

This dress was amazing! I am a dance teacher and wore it for our annual end of year show!
I was 5 1/2 months pregnant and was looking for a shift type dress that was comfortable and didn't require shape wear! This was it!! So comfortable, flattering and looked fabulous on stage! I received so many compliments and was sad to return it. I typically wear a size 6/8 (non-pregnant) and ordered a 10 (pregnant) and it was perfect- almost ran too big.

I wore this dress for a bachelorette party.
It was definitely true to size and fit just right. If you had a bit of a tummy though, definitely spanx-it-up because the dress still showed that really well. It was comfortable; not too heavy to dance in. I received compliments all night. Definitely a great dress.

I wore this dress to a charity fashion show. I really wanted something glamorous but comfortable. It was just what I wanted! I can't say enough about this company. The dress and backup arrived promptly and the return couldn't be easier. I will be back again!

Perfect amount of glitz and really comfortable. I wore this to a work event and thought this dress was perfectly appropriate. Some sequins were missing and more fell off during the night, but nothing that was a deal breaker. I loved wearing this dress!

Sassy, Shimmery, got lots of compliments
This is not my favorite RTR dress, but it got the job done. I got an 8 and a 6, I'm usually an 8 and wore the 6. The sequins on it are a bit loose, they hang and snagged on themselves a few times (I had to untangle the sleeve from the body of the dress a couple times while wearing it). I wore it for an outdoor wedding and wished several times that it was sleeveless, but that's my bad for wearing to a summer event. It photographed really well, the photographer actually had me hold the bouquet to use the dress as a background in pics! Other people really liked it, and there was definitely nothing terribly wrong with it, I've just had other rentals that wowed me.

Epic fail
Did not wear this dress. Both sizes were in terrible shape. The sequins was completely missing in many areas, and threaders were coming off every where. And it was not flattering on at all. Thank goodness in this case I had chosen a back up.

A showstopper!
Stunning dress. Sexy and comfortable. I read that the dress ran large so I ordered an 8 and then a 6 for back up. I had a feeling I would need the 6 or at least an 8 since it was a lose fitting shift and the comments were that the dress ran large. RTR was unable to send me a back up due to a former renter causing some damage that could not be repaired in time for me to rent the smaller size. (They DID provide me with an alternate dress so I would have something to wear in case this was too big.) It was. The 8 was far too large and gave me no shape. However, I loved the dress SO much and how light and easy it was to wear, that I pinned the inside of the size 8, (2 inches on each side) and was able to wear it. It was perfect. The 6 would have been ideal. I would buy this dress if it were an option. It was so comfortable!!! Many, many compliments!!! Usually, in a fitted dress, I would wear a 10. The 6 would have been perfect but I made the 8 work!.
