Perfect dress for photoshoot!
I rented this dress for my 30th birthday photoshoot and the pictures turned out great! I ended up renting two sizes up based on previous reviews and I'm glad I did. The top fit a little big but the inner skirt was so tight it barely fit over my hips. This dress is not made for curvy girls. I'm glad I didn't wear to an event because I would have been trying to pull it down all night and keeping my top pulled up. If you rent this dress just know that it's difficult for the top and bottom to both fit perfectly.

The dress runs small so order a size up. This is a very cute dress for a day wedding.

Lightweight and flowing for a beautiful outdoor wedding.
PROS: off white cream color is not too sterile white for bride. asymmetric waste is more forgiving. toole overlay is flowing and fun with many layers and a solid short skirt underneath it all. Great skirt length! CONS: I normally wear a 0 or 2, but after the dress wouldn't zip over my bust, I went incrementally up to a 6R. STILL the bust barely closed and on the day of the wedding, I was stitched in to keep it from unzipping slowly. (READ: there is no clasp to hold the top of the zipper) Therefore, the dress was a bit big in the waist, and I was not breathing comfortably due to the tight top. One other thing: it was an outdoor wedding and for one reason or another, flies and bugs kept getting caught in the toole of the dress! Little black bugs are noticeable in the white skirt. Overall, I would give this 7/10.

My absolute favorite rental to date
I. Loved. This. Dress. Everything about it is perfect. The cut the color the amount of puff in the skirt. I felt amazing in it and the pics looked awesome. I wore it to diner en blanc and it was perfect. I want to buy it but dunno where else I'd wear a white dress like this cos it was almost like a wedding dress!

Other women think it runs small, but i think its true to size. Unless you have large breasts. Otherwise it looks and fit excellent.

I am about 5'3" and this dress was way to long for me. I had seen people go both ways in their reviews for a shorter person. But I was hoping for something flirty and light-hearted, and it completely overwhelmed my body and made me look like a little girl playing dress up, rather than a sophisticated woman with style. I did not wear it. The color and feel of the fabric was not as lovely as I would have hoped either. I generally like off whites, ivory, gold but it seemed almost aged. If you go with this dress, be sure you have a steamer ready to get everything all fluffed out and smooth.

Party Dress- wedding dress number 2
I wore this adorable dress for my "party dress" at my wedding reception. It was awesome! Loved having the freedom to dance and not worry about my train or the weight of my wedding dress. The high low skirt was a cute variation of a typical strapless white puffy dresses. I wore the 4R. For non-busty girls, the 6 and 8 were just too big. The underlay of the skirt is a bit snug and doesn't give too much so be aware of that. Highly recommend!

The Dress was beautiful and a great fit ! I happened to order a back up size and both dresses looked different ... fabric wise ...and the way the skirt looked was different on both dresses ! But I did feel so beautiful wearing it !!

I loved this dress, it was perfect for my little wedding, it made feel like a little princess.
The dress is Ivory color, and I didn't noticed that and was expecting white, so I used a white belt but it's was ok, that was my mistake! I have a 36D chest, I'm 5'5' tall and 164 lbs weight, and expecting a little miracle 8 weeks pregnant, showing a lot. The problems I had with the dress was in my chest, it was a little short in that area, and I felt half part of my boobs was out the whole time and I need more coverage, so I kept pulling the dress up there. I couldn't wear a bra, because the bra kept showing up due to the top to be very short. Also the dress got a weak zipper, and it opened at some moment. So I don't recommend this dress if you got a large chest like mine. It was perfect in the length, and it was great to hide my pregnant tummy.

Gorgeous, ethereal dress for post-reception bar hopping
It was snug, but I was glad it stayed up! No nip slips, and was a crowd pleaser! My chest is pretty small, but I wore it without a bra no problem (it was actually more comfortable that way). The tulle is SUPER delicate, so be sure to put it on barefoot. Heels can snag and rip the "under-tulle". Otherwise, it was the perfect dress for post-summer-wedding bar hopping.

Beautiful and Romantic
I read the reviews and because everyone said it ran a bit snug I got a 10, but I wish I had gotten a size 8. I wear a 32D bra and it wasn't at all tight, in fact it stood out from my body a bit. Because I only wore it for my engagement photos it wasn't a big issue, but if I had been at a party it would have bothered me. The dress is gorgeous, it had a few snags but with the layers you couldn't tell. It billowed beautifully in my photos while sitting, and though it's sheer for most of the length, you really cannot see through it.

I used this gown for a photoshoot for my blog. This gown was so ethereal and perfect!
The fit was definitely a little small- I wore the size 2 and I think the 4 would have been better!

Engagement photo rental--photographs incredibly!
This dress made for some magical engagement photos. It photographs beautifully, however I don't know about the fit for an all day/all night situation if you are constantly a "between sizes" person. That said, I have a different body type (bigger bottom, way less up top), and if you really are true to size--you should be good to go, as long as you know that it will be a little bit tight. This dress ran a little small on me, but I needed the smaller size for my bust because the larger size was a little too big. However, I was only using it for pictures so it was incredibly flawless. Would highly recommend for photos!

Photographed so well!
I LOVE the way this dress looks in photos but it did for a little awkwardly. I am usually a size 2 in regular dresses and a size 4 in bridesmaid dresses. This dress however I'm glad I ordered extra up! Although the dress ended up being a little big on top causing it to bunch at the waist, it was TIGHT around my hips and butt. There is no way I could've worn the 4. I loved the high low cut and ivory/ off-white dress color ... perfect for my elopement! My measurements are 33 bust, 25.5 waist, 39.5 hips/butt

Derby themed shower
I rented this for my derby themed shower. I'm big in the bust (26FF) yet the two still fit and wasn't inappropriate. It was, unfortunately, long on me even with 4.5" heels. I'm 5'3". But I got so many compliments and didn't want to send it back!

I wore this as a second dress at my wedding reception. It worked out perfectly.
As most people have said, this dress runs small! I usually wear a size 4 and had to size up to a 6 in order to get this dress to zip over my chest (34D). Also, as mentioned, the underdress is VERY short. However, the tulle covers that portion so it wasn't a really a problem. I changed into this dress mid-way through my wedding reception in order to be able to dance without getting trampled on and I received tons of compliments! It's a great way to show off your fun wedding shoes as well. I ordered a size 4 and a size 6 and the tulle on the 6 was a bit wrinkled when it came. I was able to get most of them out with a hand steamer so you may want to keep a steamer handy if you order this dress.

Pretty but not practical
This dress is NOT designed for girls with bigger chests. I found the rest of the dress to fit somewhat tight, and uncomfortably. It looked so cute on the model, but it seemed see-through in real life. I was disappointed, but I know there are other dresses out there!!

I didn't wear the dress. The quality was not great. It looked old and I would be embarrassed.
The dress fits fine but it just wasn't good quality. I couldn't wear it and feel confident in it. It looked old.

I had to return this before I wore it
I rented this as my dirty 30 dress but it did not look good on me. I'm more on the hourglass shape and this made me look round and fluffy. Also it was really tight in the hips, there's a dress under all the tulle that hugs your hips so anytime I would bend over it felt uncomfortably tight. I'm 5'7 I weigh about 140 pounds and I normally wear a size 6. The 6 was snug in the booty area so I tried on the 8 which was loose uptop and tight in the booty area so I had to send it back. If you have more of a straight shape, I'd say this would work great for you and look amazing!! :) I was sad it didn't work for me.

Rehearsal Dinner Perfection
Okay, so when I first got it, I was like, "heck no!" This is not going to work. The dress will most likely come all crunched up. The tulle will be matter, etc. I decided to give it a chance. I took it to a dry cleaner who steamed it for me. After that, I was so completely happy with it. It's definitely short, but as long as you're careful, you won't see anything. Just check yourself when you stand up! lol. I wore it to my wedding rehearsal at a Catholic Church and the dinner party after and it felt totally appropriate. I would recommend no bra and duck tape!!

I rented this dress for my rehearsal dinner for my wedding. I received numerous compliments on the dress and how absolutely beautiful and elegant it really was. I normally wear a size 0 and I wore a size 0. However, the dress does run a little small and I could've easily or the size 2.

I wore this for my Jr Prom and got a ton of compliments. Truly felt like a princess.
I'm usually an 8 but ended up wearing the 10 because it runs small, but besides that it fit perfectly. Especially love the tulle bottom!

Not my favorite...
This runs SMALL - if you have any curves whatsoever size up at LEAST one size if not two. If I was wearing this for anything other than my engagement pictures I would have been really disappointed... there is a liner underneath that is so small and didn't even cover my rear, the top was tight across my chest and honestly, if it wasn't for the leather jacket I wore over it, I would have never worn in public.

Awesome dress for engagement photos!
This dress was really cute for my engagement photos. Loved all the layers and it added an element of fun! The dress I received had a stain on it but RTR sent me a replacement. One star off for how short the innermost layer is. Wear shorts underneath.

It was a chance to wear white, NOT being a bride :)
When the garment came in, there were some holes in the tulle which through the night from standing and sitting they inevitably ripped even more. It fit perfect and was still a total hit!

Dress is worth a shot, but not so sure for tiny chested gals like me.
I wore this dress for 1 of 2 engagement sessions because I knew that I was not going to wear a fooffy type dress on my wedding day. Not sure why I did not get a 0, it was so long ago, however the 2R was too big for me in the chest area, but I dealt with it. The dress was fun, and it went with my vintage theme somewhat as I used a bar background (not pictured) for my save the dates.

Perfect for the charity gala I attended! It recieved attention without demanding it.
This dress was a dream! I'm not used to wearing sleeveless so I chose to wear the smaller size that had less give in it. The top bodice is pretty firm, but looks very forgiving ie no wrinkles or crinkles. The cut threw me off at first, but ended up being one of my favorite parts. The bottom part I freaking loved, I ended up pining up a few off the bottom layers of tool to give it a kind of pop. The train in the back was amazing. I got an endless barrage of compliments. Loved the light cream as it matches with mainly everything. I chose red lips and shoes with a black clutch, though I could have worn literally anything and it would have been awesome. It was easy to walk, sit, dance and eat in. Even going to the bathroom was relatively easy. Definitely would recommend this dress!!!

I ordered too large :(
I followed all previous reviewers and ordered this dress a size up AND THEN to be safe ordered my backup as a size up from that. This was a huge mistake because the dress wouldn't stay up even when it was zipped all the way so I couldn't wear it to my bridal shower :( but luckily I rented alternative back ups!!!
