The fit on the dress was perfect, although the skirt underneath the tulle was pretty short, but luckily with the tulle you couldn't see anything. I definitely still recommend this dress!

Fun, Flirty Dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I did NOT want to take this dress off!! I felt like a ballerina and got compliments ALL night long. It's very boobalicious, but that didn't bother me. My only complaint with the dress - the under sheath left black dye all over my body when I took the dress off, but by then I was getting ready to shower and the night was over, so no harm. What a fun, fun party dress!

Full disclosure, I did have to return this dress because my party was cancelled, but I did try it on and wear it for a bit for future reference :) I LOVED this dress and can't wait to order it again so I can actually wear it! The tulle skirt is huge and amazing, and it's very comfortable and flattering. It definitely runs big and the 2 fit generously.

This dress was so much fun! It runs a little bit big so I paired it with a shirt underneath. When you go up a size, the shoulder area gets a little bigger so I would recommend staying true to size or going down a size. I definitely recommend!

Ballerina Mommy

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Party
My 2 year old saw me in this and called me a ballerina! I usually wear a 4, but the 2 fit nicely. The skirt is super puffy, which made my waist look super small. It's a bit short for my usual mommy wear, but still cute and fun for a night out.

Perfect dress!!

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Party
I loved this dress so much!! It had a big poufy skirt and was nice and fitted at the top. The skirt is pretty big and wide, which I loved - I felt like Natalie Portman in Black Swan. Might be a bit 'too much' for a more conservative girl. I'd still recommend getting it and just steaming the tulle so it lays flatter

So fun for NYE! Poofy, but fun.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I had so much fun in this dress! There were a few issues but otherwise, once you're moving around, it's magic. This dress is so poofy it made me self conscious. After a while, I didn't care. It's not as structured as it appears on the model and that will all depend on how much wear and tear the dress you receive has had. My 6 was bad. The tulle was ripped and burned and a mashed mess which isn't a big deal unless you're super tall like me because everything is so mashed up, the opaque portion off the dress barely covers your rear end which you can see in pic #3. The 4 was in better condition but I felt more comfortable in the 6 because for some reason, this dress comes SO high waisted as you can see in the 2nd and 3rd pictures. Not sure who Allison Parris had in mind when she made this one but the waistline was closer to my boobs than my belly button. I didn't care. The front poufed so much I bet I looked pregnant. I didn't care. Not sure what I looked like but I felt like a princess. Wore a sparkly NYE tiara and I was good to go. BEWARE - you WILL be pulling this down ALL night. (I didn't care.) Also, u will need a demi cup if you want to wear a bra.

Super fun party dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress is very flattering. I ordered the 6 and the 8 and went with the 6. Be prepared to showcase the ladies because the dress is low cut but not vulgar. I wore this to a NYE party so the low-cut factor was not an issue but if you are going to be with family or a professional environment you ma want to keep that in mind. The flow made my waist seem tiny. The tulle is fun, just needed to be fluffed up. I danced all night and was super comfortable.

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is much poofier than expected and came very wrinkled. It took my a good hour to steam it out. Also the tulle was pretty beat up on both the 6 and the 4. I could have worn either but the 4 allowed me not to have to wear a bra and feel more secure. ****be sure you have black shorts to wear underneath because the inner lining is extremely short.

This dress is adorable! I wore it to a New Year's Eve party. It's very form fitting in the bust area but has a stretchy fabric so you can still breathe. The bottom was very fluffy like a tutu and super short - I wore boy shorts underneath just to be safe. Overall, it was the perfect fun LBD for the occasion.

I read a comment before deciding on this dress that was really helpful. It's going to feel really big, and it is, but just roll with it! Have your Carrie Bradshaw moment! I got so many compliments on it, but know that it does require some prep time before wearing it. I ironed every layer of tulle with an iron set on the lowest setting. That helped everything lay a little flatter and more flattering.

I loved this dress! It was such a fun dress for NYE! So playful and fit wonderfully! The only downside was that when I took it off after the night was over, the dye from the fabric was all over my torso and chest and back! I've never encountered this before, nor was a sweating! That's why I gave it a 4, however the dress itself is beautiful!!!

A New York NYE Wedding!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I absolutely loved this dress! I didn't want to take it off at the end of the night! I wore it for a NYE wedding but it could've been worn to any cocktail type event. The tulle skirt was so much fun and the top was fitted just right. I sized up to an 8 because I recently had a baby and was feeling self conscious about the fit around my stomach. But I could've worn the 6 if I had felt more confident. The skirt underneath is short (mid thigh length) but the tulle around it is longer, to the top of the knee. The top was fitted and gives great cleavage- if you're looking for it! Overall, I highly recommend this dress. I wish I could've worn it again (and so does my husband ;) )

I loved this dress! I put it on and skipped around our hotel room when I tried it on upon arrival. My Husband and I hosted a Happy Hour the night before our wedding for our Family and Friends. It bunched up a bit in the back because I'm short waisted and that's what happens. The dress is a great mix of cutie pie and sex kitten. I received compliments from everyone all night.

The tulle on this dress is so fun!

Size worn: 2

Wore this dress for a fun photo shoot. I am normally a 0 and could have worn it, but ended up sizing up to the 2 because I'm large-chested and that was more comfortable. Agree with other reviewers that the lining under the dress is a little short so taller girls may feel a little uncomfortable in it. At 5'2", I felt great!

I loved this dress! It was perfect for my hourglass figure. I wore the 6 but probably could have fit a 4 better because it was a little loose around my waist. I'm tall, 5'7, and I was worried the tool would make it too short but it was the perfect length.

It was fun and flirty and the full bottom was very unique.

Size worn: 8

The material at the top is stretchy and comfortable and makes your bust look great! I usually wear a 10 but even with D cups the top on the 10 was too large. Wearing spanks under the dress made the whole night more comfortable! The one thing I didn't like is that the tool-style full bottom started only a few inches under the bust line, and made my stomach look a bit full as well.

Size worn: 4

This dress fits true to size, but does not fit tight. If looking for a snugger for up top, I would go a size down! I loved this dress and didn't want to return it! The only con was the poofy-ness of the bottom. It takes some working with to make the tulle lay like it does in the picture and for it to not make you look a little larger than normal from the waist down! It may have only been extremely noticeable on me because of my height (5' 0"). Overall, I loved it and would definitely reccomd do this dress! #sorority #formal #sororityformal #comfy #lbd #tutu #tulle

I wore this dress to a Paris themed gala that I was working. It was super comfortable and was great for the theme! I was concerned when other reviewed mentioned the sheerness of the skirt, but I didn't have an issue with it. There were so many layers unless someone is skirt-level and staring, they aren't going to see anything.

"You look like a princess"

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is a really fun dress! I wore it for a black & white gala and definitely stood out in a sea of more standard LBDs. The tutu skirt is really fun and made the look. I will say it doesn't look as polished as it does on the model. The bodice fabric doesn't have much structure to it and on a petite person, sat low. Too low to wear a real bra - I'm lucky to be small-chested so I didn't have to! Other than that, a great dress! Comfortable and chic!

the size i chose to wear had a very wrinkled tu tu. I took it to the local drycleaner and they steamed it for me really quickly. The other size was not wrinkled. It was very very short.

Amazingly fun dress for a party - got compliments from strangers all night!

Size worn: 10
Rented for: Party
Rented this dress for dinner and dancing for my birthday in April 2015 and it was perfect!!! It was like a ballerina in the best way possible... we called it the naughty ballerina all night. I normally wear a size 10 which is what I wore for this one. I didn't even try on the 8 because the 10 fit so well. I'm a true hourglass (waist is exactly 10 inches smaller than my hips) but I wear a 34J which makes it INSANELY hard to find dresses that I can fit my boobs in. I ended up renting this one because I could 1. wear my own bra and 2. the reviews said the top was kinda stretchy which it turned out to be. It fit perfectly! Some of the reviews said this was a little short, which it is, but I think it also feels shorter than it actually looks because the bottom is so light. It feels like it ends before it does when it is actually providing more coverage. I solved this issue by wearing my black Spanx slip skirt... it provided a smooth line and a little more coverage underneath that almost looked like part of the dress. All in all this was my favorite rental to date and I would consider purchasing this one if it weren't so unique. It came in great condition, customer service was amazing (as always) and it actually showed up a day early!

I like the dress but it ended up not being my favorite. I'm very short, but still was self conscious of my butt coming out the back. The coverage was short... I felt like it was a little too much look for a wedding. Maybe a bachelorette party? Not overly flattering on my athletic body. Overall ok!
