Last minute change- but worked great!
The orgianal dress I rented from RTR didn't fit just right, so I panic picked this one last minute. It was perfect and the fit was great. I am a 34A and the top was great and I went braless. Fabric is forgiving and comfortable and skirt isn't too short. Great dress!

The dress was amazing! It was a perfect combination between sexy and girly. Just what I needed.
The top was a bit loose and had to be pinned back at the nap of my neck. The adjustment was easy and minimally noticeable though.

Felt like a chic princess for my 30th birthday soirée.
This dress is so flouncy and fun, definitely the most unique LBD I've ever worn and I got a ton of compliments all evening. The tulle is really flattering -- shows off legs and hides tummy and hips. Note that if you have a fuller chest, it makes the waist shorter than what you see on the model. The fabric has no stretch at all, so definitely order a size up if you're at all concerned about fit. This dress is also a little shorter than you think it's going to be, which is super fun but something to keep in mind. The main problem with this dress is it's so full I kept hitting people's heads as I walked through the restaurant! But definitely a great dress, so glad I rented and would absolutely rent again.

Fun, silly, and show-stopping
I wore this dress to a really outrageous opera performance. The dress was very comfortable and very easy to wear. Te top is a soft cotton and the cut of the neckline is very flattering. It's really poofy and silly. The actual bottom of the dress is REALLY short, but all the tulle keeps anyone from seeing anything indecent. I wore it with opaque black tights, boots, and a leather jacket. Also, as I was walking through the theater a few people I didn't know were like, "oh! that's lady's in a tutu!" I thought it was hysterical. You'll turn heads in this dress.

LOVE!
This dress was so much fun to wear, it fit perfect and I received many compliments all night. The skirt/tutu is larger then it appears in the picture.but still looks great. I highly recommend this dress if you love to have personality in your style.

Fairy funtimes.
This dress is cute as all get-out, but beware: the top's REAL LOW, it runs a bit big, and the skirt is very, very voluminous. After this evening, my friends nicknamed me the Drunk Fairy. My biggest complaint about this dress is that the tulle looks like kind of a hot mess when it first gets to you -- so hang it up in a steamy bathroom while you shower to help the kinks fall out.

Such a fun dress!
This dress is perfect for the right event! It's way poofier than shown in the picture, to the point where I was the "girl in the tutu". I was surprised how short the top was given how short I am. It was a bit big so I belted it with a thin belt, and that really helped. With how short the top was it made it much more low cut than I was anticipating so the right bra is essential. Great dress for a fun event!

Made me feel pretty and confident!
I've rented quite a few dresses, but this has been by far my favorite! I had no idea I was a tutu girl, turns out I want to wear one every day! I would say that it was a little shorter than I had expected, but I'm on the tall side (I'm sure I gave anyone behind me on staircases a show). I may actually rent again for an event next month because I love it and to get a head to toe picture of myself.

Could not wear the dress,
The waist was too high and it was not fitted well in the bodice at all. It looked cheap. The tulle was also all over the place.

Very different from the picture, high-waisted and poufy!
I was so disappointed in this dress! I booked it months before my company's holiday party, before there were any reviews or pictures. I wish I had waited! The waist is very high and the tulle is much, much fuller than in the picture. Because of the stretchy fabric, there isn't much definition to the waist and adding a belt didn't help. It doesn't do much for a short girl with a medium bust and a not-tiny waist. Thankfully RTR came through and overnighted me a different dress that was a much better match!

Great dress! Definitely draws attention - don't wear if you want to blend in. =)
I ordered a 6 and 4, and both fit. I'm usually one or the other, so I'd say it runs true to size. The others are right when saying it is fuller than it looks in the picture. I'm short, so it seemed even more pronounced. I have a long torso, and if I didn't have a smaller chest, I think it could have been too low cut, because the torso is shorter. Overall, a super fun dress that got a ton of compliments!

Had to return it, the skirt is a solid foot out from the body and the bust is too low cut.
The skirt ruined the dress, and the bust was so low cut I had to return it.

I didn't end up wearing this, but wore another dress I had rented.
All of the reviews said it was short in the torso, but I rented anyway because it looked so cute. Unfortunately, it was really short in the torso, so the poof began really at an empire waist, just making me look very wide and large. If the torso had been just a few inches longer, it would've been perfect! I was lucky that the back-up size was full, so RTR sent another dress, the Sachin + Babi Underneath the Stars dress, which was adorable but I would not have ordered it.

Not for someone tall with a long torso, but luckily my friend was able to wear it instead!
She's 5'6'', about 145 lbs, has a small upper body & larger hips. The dress had quite a bit of give, I think she's typically a 6 or 8 in the dress, but the 2 worked for her. When I tried it on, it was large on the top & looked weird with my long torso. It was a super fun dress though and my friend looked great in it. I would recommend for someone who's shorter & not so straight/narrow like me.

Skirt made this dress a "wow" dress. Very fun to wear.
Be prepared to spend about 30 minutes ironing the skirt portion. It arrived pretty messy and this tamed the lower half some. Ironing made a huge difference in the the final look out the door. Much better.

This is such a fun dress! Unfortunately, it was too big.
I was really excited about this one, but it was too big on top and puckered along the neckline. As cute as it was, it just didn't look right. It was very comfortable though and would have been fun for the right party. I got it to wear for a black tie wedding reception, but in person I don't think it looked dressy enough. Exceptional customer service as always though, and I had a perfect backup dress. Looking forward to my next rental!

runs large, super poofy!
if I would have ordered a 0 I probably would have worn this, it was cute but ran very large in the chest, and the back bunched up a lot. it arrived very wrinkly and with a needle stuck in it! haha. luckily RTR has great service and is refunding me. I would be weary of this brand, the other dress I ordered was Allison Paris too and in that dress I would have needed a size 8. typically im a size 2. so she's all over the map with her sizes.

Tu-Tu seeking Ballerina
Well this is one where you should read the reviews ladies. I read them and thought, Nah, I can pull it off---WRONG! I'm a 32D and barely filled out the top, the neckline is so plunging that it makes the torso look so short-waisted you look like some kind of strange puffy midget ballerina with this huge, and I do mean HUGE tulle tutu skirt. They are Not exaggerating when they say it is an attention getter...however, that wasn't the kind of attention I was seeking. This one went back....though getting it back in the envelope with ALL that tutu was a bit difficult! I will say the go to gal at RTR was AMAZING. I called in a panic because this was the only dress I'd rented for my party and she was so sweet and helped me find another dress and overnighted it to me in time for my event. It worked out beautifully!

Festive dress with a big skirt!
The skirt is very poofy, but in a good way! I hung it up for a day before wearing, which helped straighten out the layers. It definitely required a little fine-tuning, but ended up looking great. The 6 fit better on top, but was just too short, so I wore the 8 for modesty's sake. Easy to accessorize and perfect for the New Year's Eve party I wore it to. Got lots of compliments!

I absolutely was in LOVE with this dress!! The tutu was so much fun!
I loved that it was basic enough to dress up with awesome accessories. The dress fit me perfectly except for the length of the part of the dress underneath the tutu. I had to wear spandex because it was so short. But you couldn't tell through the tutu! The tutu is really full, which I loved!

Pretty, fluffy, adorable, cute, AND hot at the same time.
I wore this for a fashion blogger's interview on me, and it turned out great. The skirt is VERY full, and the top is fitted. It's (the top) a little more stretchy than the other Allison Parris dresses on here. I used a Kate Space belt I already had, sparkly tights, and black suede pumps. I highly recommend it, it's a lot of fun to wear!

Small in the butt, large in the chest
I rented this dress for a cotillion holiday dance, and it was my second dress so I only received it in one size. I was really hoping for this to work out as it looked so cute in the pictures/reviews but I wasn't able to wear it! Being almost 5'9", the underskirt that keeps the tulle from being completely see through was not even long enough to go over my butt! In the picture of the model, the tulle looks quite opaque and limp, however, in real life you would definitely be able to see if the underskirt had ridden up (or wasn't down in the first place) AND the tulle is MUCH more poofy in real life than it is pictured on the model, think bell shaped vs A line. Another issue I had with the dress was the bust area. Although I rented a 2, the top was extremely low cut (my bra hung out) and loose. Although I am very small chested, I did not expect the top to bag as much as it did. With all of that said, this was a gorgeous dress, and if worn by the right body type would be absolutely adorable! But, if you're tall or have a butt, rethink renting this dress!

I felt like the New Year's Eve fairy! It definitely is an attention getter, and ups the typical LBD
It is much shorter than it appears, and also made my torso seem significantly shorter than it is, so I kept my blazer on for most of the night to give me more of a waist and length.Straps were comfortable, and I liked the fact that it's a little low-cut to balance out the almost over-girlishness of the bottom. The material is so fun, but still felt very well made. I felt couture and whimsical, and like I could do WHATEVER I WANTED DO YOU SEE MY DRESS?

This dress was great! I was the only person at the party wearing it and received many compliments!
There is an underskirt that is supposed to cover your butt and it is REALLY short. I was worried about it riding up all night; however, the tulle was thick enough that no one could really see either way. But otherwise, I loved this dress.

I got multiple compliments from people at the Grammy party!
The size 0 fit me width-wise perfectly, but was too short on my booty. I ended up wearing the size 2 since that was more modest (this was a work event), but it was a bit of a loose fit.

LOVED it! Felt Like a Ballerina!
I loved this dress...it was so much fun for a black tie event. People kept coming up to me all night telling me how 'fun' it was. Some of the creepier strangers touched it, but it was still a ton of fun. I felt like a ballerina!! I was nervous when I got it. The solid dress part itself only went a little below my butt, but because there is so much tulle, it was fine and you couldn't see through.

Looks cute, but the fit is really weird.
This dress is cute. The fit is flexible because the bodice is stretchy, but it is WAY too short. The photos of the model are deceiving because the outermost layers of tulle are longer than the base slip underneath. The base of the dress did not even cover my butt, but because the layers of tulle are longer, I felt comfortable enough to wear it out, but I was tugging on the inner layer all night to get it to cover my bum. I think this dress is designed for a very straight-and-narrow figure, because my butt was basically out when I sat down. I would NEVER be able to wear this without opaque tights because my tush would be touching every seat. It kind of felt like I was wearing just a shirt all night. Altogether, it's like the total length of the bodice and skirt needs to be lengthened like four inches, especially to cover ladies like me with bigger chests and booties. However, it is comfortable and the skirt is fun.

cute but WAY too short
I rented this for the WInter Formal at my school. I'm 6'0" so I'm used to dresses and skirts being a little short. But this skirt didn't even cover my butt! The t-shirt I had on (before trying on the dress) was longer! Don't get me wrong, the dress is super cute! Just not if your legs are as long as mine. On a better note, the customer service was absolutely phenomenal!!

This dress makes it easy to feel amazing.
I LOVED this dress!!! I got so many compliments walking through the museum for our engagement photos. My fiance loved it too. My photographer did not stop doting and I had to share my RTR secret! I don't have a large bust so the fit was great and it wasn't too revealing. Most complaints about the top half of the dress are because it doesn't work so well for a large bust. I'm tall so the underskirt definitely felt like I was just naked at times, but I was confident that nothing was ever revealed or too short. The dress arrived slightly wrinkled so I just ironed out a few top layer wrinkles with a towel on top of the tulle. I only gave it 5 minutes because you really need a steamer but it's no big deal. It's a tutu! Nobody cared and it looked amazing in our photos.

I loved the dress, definitely have to fluff the skirt out and it's much fluffier than the picture. It was perfect with my sparkly black heels and a red lip! You really need a good special bra if you want "the girls" to be seen. I had a really pretty sparkly push up and I just incorporated it with the outfit, so I let is show a little up top. Only con for me was that the top part could have been tighter. It fit me pretty loose and that forced me to wear a belt. But in the end it worked out and I got compliments all night!
