Was the perfect party outfit.
Top was a little uncomfortable when my arms brushed against it but not unbearable. Fit great and was not constricting.

Looked like a million bucks
I looooooove it! I wore this for my RN graduation party. Paired it with a tulle skirt from space 46 boutique. Although at first the shirt looked used, it's totally different after you put it on. The immediate feeling of a movie star. Looks even more amazing when you take pictures. Everybody loved the outfit. I felt like a princess. The size 6 felt like a size 4 to me, but it wasn't really a problem to me. Can't wait to rent again

Loved this top!
I'm a boudoir and contemporary glamour portrait photographer and I rented this top for a client to wear as one of her outfits (the skirt I crafted on the spot using fabric, clamps, and ribbon). The top is shorter than it looks on the model, but that may be because my client is busty. She is size 6 with a bust size of 34DD, so she wore the size 8 so she'd have more room. It fit her very nicely. http://shannonhemauerphotography.com/

Perfect party crop top!
I wore this for an Oscars party in LA and matched it with a RTR black skirt. It was perfectly glam, and I received a ton of compliments. I loved it so much I'd consider purchasing it.

Beautiful and expensive looking, but this top doesn't work for top heavy girls.
I'm a 32DDD and this top was just a bust and good for a rolling laugh. It is much shorter than shown on the model. The bigger your cup is, the higher it rides in the front. I put on the size 2 and anytime I would lift my arms the bottom of my bra would poke out hilariously. Just no way to make it work. *Perhaps* if I had tried the 0 (the top is very stretchy) then it wouldn't ride up, but I doubt it. The bottom area is loose, so it will just pull up anywhere there are curves. Very cute but no way to make it work if you're curvy.

Told I was very Sex and the City and probably most fashionable one at Tone It Up retreat.
I am a 34C and I would have liked it to be about an hour inch lower as I felt my boobs were gonna pop out but I wore a bra. It was comfy, easy to zip. It was a little "worn" but looked great. Loved this with the navy skirt (also from RnR). 5'6" - 128lbs - 34C - Wear a small, 4 or 6 usually.

This top completed my outfit for my bridal shower. Absolutely stunning!
This top was the perfect touch for my bridal shower. It definitely runs smaller than I thought, especially if you have a bust. It definitely just sits under your bra line. I ended up not wearing support, because one little move and it was showing. The sequins were not bothersome at all. The only issue I had was on the sleeves the gold liner underneath kept showing and my bridesmaids had to continue pulling the sequined sleeves down to fix it. That wasn't a big deal though at all. I loved this so much. Would totally re rent it for another big event <3

LOVED THE SPARKLE! MUCH BETTER THAN SEQUINS
I typically wear a 2 or 4 top, but with my reservation two days before I needed it, only a 0 was available. It still fit great! It had just enough (not a lot of) stretch for it to fit. I wanted the top to come up higher than if I bought my true size, so it worked out perfect! The jewels all over the shirt are such a beautiful detail! Worth every penny! I received so many compliments, and could not have been happier!

Glam Engagement Photos
Such a glam look for my engagement photos! The cropped top looked SO CUTE with the black tulle skirt. It doesn't necessarily run small in the amount of fabric around the bust (I'm a size 4 and wore a size 4), but it is SHORT no matter the size. The other size I rented was a 10 just to see if the length improved, but it was virtually the same. The other thing that changed was the amount of fabric around the bust width-wise. Also, I had to pin in some of the fabric like other reviewers said. Still, I'd rent it again because it's PERFECT for a high-waisted look!

Cute but small
This top is gorgeous and the sparkle is perfect! I rented it for my 40th birthday party and photoshoot. It looked amazing and I can't wait to see the professional pics. I wish it were just a bit longer. I was literally 1/8 inch and a sudden move away from a wardrobe malfunction. I couldn't even raise my arms. It looks longer in the pictures, but it barely covers my very modest sized breast. I had to wear a sports bra with safety pins because a standard bra with underwire would not work. It gave me the look o was going for, but I wouldn't rent this again.

Sparkly, Fun, and Elegant
Loved this top! I had a very high waisted black skirt that needed a very short crop top to get the full effect. I saw in most the reviews that the top ran small so I ordered the 10 (only size available for me) and luckily it fit! As everyone says it is very short on your torso. I am a 34D and I could feel my underwire at the very bottom of the shirt. That being said the cut of the shirt hides this; it just feels a little weird. While dancing at points my bra could be seen, but to me this was not much different than a lot of dresses.

So pretty, runs SO small.
This shirt is super cute, I got MILLIONS of compliments on it. I will say there were a few negatives though: 1. this runs SO SO SO small. I am a size 2, 5 ft 4 in, 115 lbs, 32 C, and I had to wear a size 8!! I read reviews that said to size up, so I originally got a 4 and 6 thinking that would be enough. I tried them on and had complete under-boob. So I had an 8 and 10 over-nighted to me and wore the 8. 2. the lining kept coming out of the sleeves and bottom. It was very annoying to have to constantly tuck it in. You can see the lining coming out in all of my photos :( Maybe this was just the case for the one shirt I wore, and not for all of them. Overall, this was perfect for my bridal shower. it was fun, flirty, cute, and fashion forward!

Sparkly and fun!
This crop top is so much fun! Definitely size up like the other reviews say because it will be really short! I probably would have worn the 8 if it was available (I usually wear xs tops). It was perfect for my bridal tea! Everyone loved how fun and girly it was! The lining kept showing on the arms and stomach but I kept tucking it up.

Popping top
I rented this with the skirt shown in picture for a pre wedding bowling night we had the night before our wedding. It was quite small and if there was an option to rent the 2 or 4 I would have gone with those sizes, however only the 0 was available. The size worked but I would have preferred a little longer. Overall, it's a great top, lots of fun, and the people who worked at the bowling alley told me that people were commenting on how much they loved the top.

Sparkled at my Kate Spade inspired Bridal Shower!
I ordered a 0 and a 4 and although the 4 was longer, if I raised my arms it actually rose higher (and showed my bra) than the 0 because the bottom was not tight. Sequins are not itchy, hard to zip by yourself. Photographs beautifully and looks just as great in person!

Unbeatable sparkle
Such a fun top to wear for engagement photos! Only drawback is how short the top is. I wouldn't wear it to an event that includes dancing as my bra showed if I lifted my arms above about 45 degrees.

Just as I imagined
This crop top was everything I imagined. Sparkly beautiful and different. The only thing that became a problem was the shoulder cloth on the inside kept slipping out. That could've been fixed if I wore a bigger size but the size I wore was fine as well. Loved it! I wore this to my bridal shower and made a high waisted tutu to go along with it

Very fun
This top is so much fun! It is very cropped, shorter than I expected. The only downside is the lining no my he sleeves showed. I ended up pinning the lining, which worked great. Overall, I am very pleased to have rented this.

Poorly represented in photo - much shorter in real life.
This top runs true to size, but they do not clarify just how SHORT of a crop top it is. It barely covers your boobs, meaning even a high waisted skirt shows off a lot of mid-drift. This is totally cool and looks fabulous if that is what you are going for, but its not well clarified in the item description. On the model there is a good 4 inches extra fabric on the bottom of the shirt. In addition to not describing the item clearly, the lining doesn't fit in the shirt - meaning it was hanging out the bottom and the sleeves and looked sloppy. Unfortunately I was unable to wear it to my event due to these issues.

Perfect for my Gatsby themed bachelorette!
The top definitely runs small. I'm generally a 4 and I wore the 6 but I could have even gone up to the 8! I didn't find the sequins to be too heavy or scratchy. Highly recommend!

Definitely a crop top!
I rented this to see how it would look as part of my wedding ensemble. I have already purchased a tulle skirt, and was looking for a gold top to go with it. First the good - the top has a great gold color and sparkle without being too over the top. The combination of how they did the sequins and that it has sleeves looks like it will prevent any scratching from occurring under the arms (a problem I've had with other sequined items). Now for the not so good. I did order a size up as my back up, but even that felt too small. The model in the picture must be wearing a few sizes up, as the bottom of my top hit JUST under my 32B boobs. I just barely passed the hands in the air test. Size up at least 2 times if you'd like it to look more like the model picture.

Dress was fun yet still classy
There is nothing to complain about this outfit. It was comfortable and so fun to wear. I was afraid of the top being too long since I am short, but it came very close to my bra line. Got many compliments

Didn't work for me
This top was gorgeous, there is no doubt about it. But it is just not for busty women. As much as I was obsessed with it, I couldn't wear it to my bridal shower because even the size 12 was so short that the bottom of my breasts were playing peek a boo and I just didn't think it was appropriate to wear. I wished this would have worked!

I rented this top for my daughter's high school winter formal. Gorgeous, high quality piece.
This top is definitely cropped. It is much shorter than looks on the model. The underside can flip up a little bit as you can see on the sleeves. My daughter received many compliments and felt like a rockstar! Loved!

Cute with a high waisted skirt--runs small!
Very cute, but VERY short. This covered an inch or so of skin under my bra line--no more. I am busty for someone my size (32E), and wore a size 8. I was worried it would be too big, but anything smaller wouldn't have worked. Besides being short, it runs quite small (to give you an idea of the disparity--the skirt I wore it with was a size 0). There is no give to the fabric.

I am not a size 8 at all (size 4) but this was a great fit! Only con is the shirt getting stuck to your hair but other than that, loved it.

I've wanted to rent this for over a year! Worth the wait to wear it for our engagement photos!
Fit was definitely true to size. I was expecting the sequins to be a little itchy but they weren't at all. The quality is great, it's lined, and the zipper was really simple to get zipped. Of all the things I've ever rented, this is my favorite by far-- and photographs incredibly. My only word of caution- the lining will shift a bit underneath in the arms and a tiny strip will fall out from under the sequins. Seriously- I couldn't have hoped for a better piece to take pictures I'll have forever.

I got more compliments on this outfit than ever in my life! Tons of positive feedback :)
Top is quite small. I had ordered the 0 and a 6 (due to limited options) and the 0 was snug, but I didn't have to wear a bra! The material is a little sharp so dance with caution :)

Beautiful but not for larger chests
This crop would have been perfect for the formal event I am going to but the boobs literally hung out of the bottom of the shirt. They did not have a 12 so I rented the 10 but seeing how that fit, not even the 12 would have fit. Made for smaller girls.

Got tons of compliments for this outfit!
In the picture, the gold top comes down to the model's belly button. This is not how the top actually fits. The top stops just under the breast. So, if you left your arms up, your bra or breasts (if not wearing a bra) will show. I put a little double sided tape on to help with this and it worked like a charm all night. I would totally wear this again, just use the tape trick and you're all set.

Way too small.
I rented this for my bachelorette party. I usually wear a size 6 or size 8. They did not have the size 8 available so I ordered a 6 and a 10 thinking I would be safe incase the 6 was too small. I am athletic build and have proud shoulders, but I couldn't even get the size 6 on let alone over my boobs. They did not send me the size 10 so I wasn't able to wear this shirt. It looked like it would have been really cute and perfect for my outfit if I had the right size. Order a size up!

I wore this outfit for my bridal shower & it was a huge hit! I didn't want to take it off.
I ordered a 4 and 6 because I read other reviews that said it ran small and a bigger size would make the top longer in length. The 4 fit but I wouldn't be able to lift my arms without revealing to much! I am usually a true size 0
