Loved this dress! It was perfect for a roaring 20's party that I hosted.

Perfect fit. Beautiful dress that stuck out. Received so many complements on this dress. Would have loved to keep it.

The dress was a perfect dress for a New Years murder mystery party!

The dress worked really well for my petite body type. The only negative I have about the dress was there was no zipper.

Cheeky dress, perfect for our Great Gatsby celebration!

I had a wonderful it's experience with RTR. The dress allowed me to achieve the loose flapper look I wanted for my boyfriends 25th great Gatsby celebration. I am usually a size 2/4 and I got the 4 and a 6 to make sure I would have a loose fit. The four was definitely a loose fit. Loved the dress very cheeky and cute. Has great beaded detail and the feathers are adorable. I love how easy RTR makes my life in terms of having a dress I know I'll only wear once

It was the perfect FUN rehearsal dinner dress.

It fit a little lose and I probably should've gone a size smaller but the feather made this dress.

Perfect dress for a speakeasy themed gala!

I went with the size up hoping this would have a loose flapper dress feel, though it wasn't tight, it wasn't as loose as I hoped for.

This dress was a YIKES for me. It just didn't work for my body type.

This dress is for tall, very slender bodies. If you look like Taylor Swift, this dress will be perfect for you!

I absolutely loved this dress. We went to a Roaring 20s theme party and it worked perfect.

I was worried it would be too big or lay different on me, but it fit great. It didn't bunch up or catch on my hips. It was very light weight :)

The feathers.

Not too flattering for my body type. Perfect style for a Gatsby type of party or roaring twenties theme. I wore this for my Roaring Twenties bridal shower. Feathers were fun. Some of the sequins were either lose or missing from the dress. I'm sure this dress has seen better days, since it wasn't as white as it probably originally was.

Was huge and super long geared

Not the best dress for a petite wearer. The dress I received also was not in good shape. Threads hanging, beads missing and just fit weird. Gaping sleeve holes on me and way too long for my frame.

It was such a nice dress. I liked the side view best. Was baggy around the waist. Chest and hips fit perfectly. Whore for New Year's Eve.

I loved this dress! This was such a unique and flattering dress for my bachelorette party!

I received so many compliments on this dress! The fit was comfortable but still flattering and feathers were so much fun! The only problem was that the feathers kept shedding everywhere. I'm afraid that after a few too many rentals the dress may lose its feathers.

Great Gatsby party!

Rented this for my bachelorette great Gatsby themed party! It was perfect!! The feathers made the dress, however the slip of the dress does hang lower than the feathers. Very cute.

Too big to wear

I ordered a 2 and and 4 for my company holiday party. I typically wear a 4, but when I tried it on, it was too large. I thought the 2 would be perfect, but when I put it on, I actually found that the 2 was significantly larger than the 4. There was a ton of extra fabric on the back and the sleeves were too long making the dress unwearable.

This dress definitely makes a statement when you enter the room. Its fun, comfortable , subtly sexy

I normally wear a 12, but, a 10 would have been better. It was very loose at the top almost like a shift dress. I have small arms therefore the armholes were too big. Because of my height, (5'10) I was afraid, it would be too short. But, it was perfect. I have large hips, and the dress laid perfectly around them. The feathers were falling off before I left the house. But, thankfully that was the end to the feather falling episode. A perfect rental piece because when you wear this dress, everyone will be talking and definitely remember it. Love the dress!

perfect for Great Gatsby party

The dress is sort of stretchy (not clingy) and very comfortable. The pictures don't do the beading justice. I'm wearing it with 2in wedges. Still a little long but really cute, fun dress.

I rented for a Gatsby themed party.

I actually wore a Nicole Miller dress instead of this one. I rented them both. I really liked this one a lot! It was perfect for the party, I just liked the Nicole Miller dress better. I thought that this dress ran a little large. Also, it is extremely short. I am 5'4 and usually do not have an issue with length but this was short.

It was fun and comfortable dress to wear to a 1920's themed party!

The dress is comfortable to wear. Because I normally wear petite size 6, because of short waist ratio, it was bigger on the shoulders. If ordering two, go for smaller on the second dress than bigger.

Perfect for a Great Gatsby party

I was hesitant about renting a dress, worried about the fit, but this is a straight and simple dress so I took a risk... it turned out wonderfully. I wear a size 4, but based on reviews I got my second size as a 2, and I actually wore the 2 because it does run large. I got a million complements! It was comfortable and beautiful, and with lots of pearls and a headband was a perfect outfit for a Gatsby party.

I got this dress for a new years eve party and it just missed the mark. The neck line is not super flattering and the dress itself doesn't really fit the way it looks in the picture.

Runs small...

Got this for a 1920's themed party. Wore a size 4 (my usual size). Feel like I could've used the 6 but didn't get it as backup. Hit mid-thigh, perfect for petite girls. It was a little bit tighter than I thought it would be around the mid-section and the slip kept peeking through the bottom. The dress is more off-white than white. I thought it looked white in the photo. The feathers were not a problem; held up really well. Overall, a nice dress, albeit some fit issues.

Pretty dress but did not fit as seen on model...

The dress is very attractive, nice material, nice details with the beading and feathers. However I chose not to wear this dress because though I ordered my typical size the dress was tighter fitting than as seen on the model and it was a look that I found unflattering. If you light the look as seen on the model I recommend sizing up.

This dress is very unique and cute but the overall fit was small. I unfortunately could not wear it. Also, the feathers kept falling off just while trying it on.

I rented this dress for a 1920's party. A showstopper!

I have a larger chest , so it was a bit snug but fell loosely around my waist and was a little snug at the hips (I measure 34-25-37). I cannot say enough wonderful things about this dress. It made my night. The feathers were a beautiful touch. I found that it fell a few inches above my knee--I stand 5'4". This dress will make you the center of attention.

Fun fun dress! Brand new with tags still on! 20's holiday party, loved it wasnt' basic black!

Fit perfect, was loose fitting but still very flattering. Feathers were really fun! They had sent me a dress that I didn't like, and they sent this one overnight, and it was perfect. Great customer service.

gorgeous dress, fun & easy to wear. LOVE the feathers :)

only trouble was a bit baggy at the waist and hip area, it sort of sat funny as there was a lot of fabric in the front before the feather line.

This dress was amazing! Beautiful, sexy, classy, comfortable! Loved wearing it!

The dress fit loosely in the waistline adding comfort. Length was perfect…not too short or too long. PERFECT is the word that sums up the dress!

Tons of compliments! Super comfortable

I wore this to a roaring 20's Christmas party and the compliments were endless. It definitely popped, and had a great drop waist look for the 20's party. From the product pictures I expected a much heavier fabric but this was very light weight, the beading was beautiful, the feathers were fun and it was perfect for dancing! I was very concerned I'd completely loose my figure in this dress and it would be a frumpy fit but it was flattering and felt sexy. I'd recommend this for any 20's theme or wedding activities!

I didn't end up wearing this dress. When I got it both sizes were pretty off color.

The fit was exactly as true to size and it was a fun dress. But the actual dress I received was very off color. I am well aware that I was renting a dress that had been worn before, but was pretty disappointed with how yellowed in some areas and gray in others the dress was. I didn't really feel like it was wearable. Oh and I definitely agree with previous renters that the lack of a zipper is killer.

Pretty dress but showing signs of excessive wear on the feathers.

This was sent when my order could not be filled as placed. Different and pretty but the size 4 feathers were showing excessive wear signs. The size 2 had better feathers but the chest was too snug. Pretty dress if not too worn!

Great dress, lots of compliments. Definitely better on a less curvy figure, regardless of size.

I am the definition of hour glass in figure, and wear anything from 2-6 depending on the designer. I tend to wear things that come in at the waist or I look heavy (in my own mind). I knew that going in to this dress but it was so perfect for the occasion, I went for it, and sure enough, though the dress was beautiful the lack of a defined waist bothered me. I would recommend this dress for the less curvy girls, regardless of actual size. I believe it would be most flattering on a smaller chested, small framed woman.
