Perfect sparkle and look for my 20's themed party!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Large

It was my birthday and this dress was perfect for my costume party 20's themed event. It fit loose like a flapper dress and with a few accessories was a gorgeous center of attention outfit. I got so many compliments.

It was short but not uncomfortably short. The dress was absolutely amazing and so retro. Very cool find!

The dress came on time, fit perfectly, and it was an overall great experience.

The dress fit perfectly! It was a little bit short, so if you're self-conscious about length, I would go with something else. Also, a little hard to match shoes with, but otherwise, I loved it!

I know a lot of people used this dress for 20s parties but I wore it to a formal event and did NOT want to return it. It was absolutely stunning. It is fairly loose fitting, but pair it with a pair of tan heels and your legs will look fantastic! It is great if you want to be a little risky but still classy some night.

Loved this dress! The sequins and gems really catch the light and add bring some extra sparkle to this nude dress.

I loved how simple yet elegant this dress is. I wore it for my birthday party this year and loved it. It is very short, and flowy. So, just be aware that you may have to keep the booty shaking to a minimum in this dress.

I set the bar for the Boardwalk Empire themed party and everyone really got into it!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress looks even better on and in person than it does in the picture. It is comfortable, and garnered many compliments. I wore it for a 1930's Boardwalk Empire party, and it worked perfectly. The dress does run a little large. One jewel on the size S dress I didn't wear hung loose half detached from the dress, so take care to check the dress carefully before and after wearing it.

Got this dress for a Halloween costume idea and I got so many compliments on it, people even went out of there way to tell me how amazing this dress was! I am a 5'6,size 6 and a 34-D chest, I rented a small and it fit perfectly the only suggestion I have is it was little tight in the chest. The picture doesn't do it justice with the detail the beading is amazing! Would rent again.

Definitely had a unique costume - it's such a beautiful dress, compliments were definitely had :).
Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for my Halloween costume, which was a 1920's flapper. I got so many compliments on it because of the almost nude/blush color & beading!! The fit was a little loose with an XS and I normally wear XS or 0 or 00, but I do think that perhaps the dress was made to fit a bit more loosely since it's a shift dress. The length was perfect, not too short and not too long!

Too short even with a larger size!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I read the reviews and got the bigger sizes but it was way too short to wear and look decent (I am not afraid to wear mini skirts, but this was extreme). The quality was great and I loved the style but it was a no go :(

I received more compliments on this dress than anything else I've EVER worn.
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I fell in love with this dress online, but knew it'd be very short on me. I got 2 sizes-- the small & medium, thinking perhaps the medium would be longer. The small ended up fitting better overall, and there seemed to be no difference in length with the two sizes. I can see how someone more busty than me might find the dress too short in the front though. As the night & dancing progressed, the weight of the gems pulled the dress down maybe a few more inches. Pictures do not accurately show how sparkly the dress actually is.

Great dress!

I wore this for my company holiday party. I got so many compliments on the dress and I felt great. I have a straight up and down figure and am pretty petite so the shift dress style of it fit nicely. Loved the details! My boss did say it looked a bit short but I didn't think it was short at all. (she's over 65) Loved it for my first rental!

It had a unique vintage look
Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I am short and very slender so the dress was a little big on me. The length was great for a short person though because it was not too long. The style was lovely though and most people thought it was vintage. It was a perfect dress to wear to a party, easy to move and dance in but still looks put together and chic.

Very chic!
Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
This dress is really stunning. It is very much a shift dress- other reviews have mentioned that it can be kind of shapeless, which is true. But- with the jeweled design and the short length (even on me and I'm on 5'4") it is sexy enough as is and it's better that it the dress is loose. I felt straight out of the 1920s even though I just wore it on a regular date night. I LOVE this dress and can't wait to rent again!

Dress never came...
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I had booked this dress months in advance for my Roaring 20s themed bachelorette party, and the day before it was scheduled to arrive RTR told it me was no longer available. I was beyond disappointed, as no other dress would work for this themed party. Renter beware if you have a special dress in mind for a certain occasion, it might not actually be "available" even if you've already paid for it...

I rented this for a 20's costume party but it would be a fun party dress for any occasion. I found the dress to run quite large but I didn't mind that it was a room-y.

loved the style for 20's party
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress is beautiful but if you are large chested you will look shapeless. I know this is the case with all shift dress but I thought the neckline was lower when I ordered it. I ordered the xs and the small since I'm usually a size 2 or 4. The xs fit me much better all around but it was so short! I'm 5'2" and it was so short I felt I would need to wear tights and I didn't want to. I ended up getting a minimizer bra and it fit a little better, I'm 32 dbl D. I wore it with nude patent shoes and worked perfectly.

It's ... eh.
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I was really excited about this dress but it just didn't look right. It runs large actually, as the medium fit me well even though I'm typically a large. HOWEVER, I had my much taller friend try it on, and she typically wears a Medium, poor girl -- it wouldn't have covered her butt to save her life. It was VERY short on her, and I'm assuming she's about 5'8" or 5'9". For me, the "upside down triangle" shape over the crotch area was really icky looking, like an outlined bikini bottom (you see it now right?) and the line of jewels across the hips was just bad. On top of it all, beads were falling off of the thing all over the place. It looked cheap because of how much "wear" this little number had.

Pretty!
Size worn: P
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
I thought this dress was so pretty and it was delicate looking too. I know most people have been wearing this to 20's themed partied, but I wore it just to go out on a date and then a party afterwards. Unfortunately, it was longer than I expected, so I had to belt it to make it look shorter and more form fitting. It was tricky finding jewelry that matched as well, because the dress stands out so much as is.

Roaring 20s
Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I wore this for a Roaring 20s party - definitely stood out compared to the number of girls dressed in fringe. I would recommend renting a size down from usual - I have wide hips for my frame but the dress was still loose all around. It is SHORT...but sexy.

SHORT
Size worn: M

I'm skinny and 5'10". The reviews said it ran big-ish so I got a medium and a small not wanting it to be baggy. The medium fit well but it was unfortunately incredibly short. I couldn't wear it because when I raised my arms it didn't cover me.

I wore this dress as a halloween outfit (twenty's flapper!) and I was getting complimented in the street by complete strangers. It was extremely sparkly so don't wear it unless you want attention. The XS was a bit short but it definitely was everything I wanted for the holiday.

I am a very small gal so I rented a P and Small. I knew that this dress was loose fitting, but I thought it was so pretty I still wanted to rent it knowing it'll probably be big on me. Of course, I was right. The Small was big, but the P worked out okay! =) I had to pin it on the sides a little, but still looked awesome! The dress itself looked exactly like the picture, just with more aqua sequin reflections. I wore it to a wedding and received plenty of compliments. Would love to have this dress for myself, I would just need to get permanent alterations!

I'm usually a size 2 and the XS was slightly big, but it the dress was beautiful and still looked really good. Looks just like the picture, and the length was also ogood for a shorter person. Wear high heels to make your legs go on forever :)
