The white skirt was too puffy - looked like a tutu!
I didn't end up wearing this dress because the white part was very poofy and tutu-ish and made me look way wider below the waist.

Great dress to wear to a friend's birthday party
I was surprised to read a review that the bottom was too poofy. It did poof a little, but not an extreme amount. I thought it looked great and was actually very slimming. It was a very comfortable dress, and I got a ton of compliments on it. I'd recommend this. I always find that Erin by Erin Fetherston dresses fit really well and are very comfortable.

Picture is slightly misleading, but still a cute dress
As another reviewer said, the skirt portion of the dress was a bit of a surprise to me when I ordered it. It's thick and textured (like a scallop pattern). This doesn't come through on the picture on the website, and the thickness/texture of it make it appear more poofy than the picture would suggest. However, the dress itself was still cute. I normally wear a size 4 and it was a little too big/long on top (you need the top of the skirt to hit you just right). Didn't end up wearing the dress as I didn't really like how the bottom part looked. Again, still a cute dress, I was just expecting something different.

It was my birthday dress and everyone loved it!
Loved this dress. Will definitely rent it again. It's a really classy dress, and it's just the right level of dressiness: you can wear it out to dinner and not feel overdressed, but can also wear it to a formal cocktail party and not feel underdressed. Also was very comfortable, and the skirt part is heavy enough that the dress hangs nicely and never rides up. Because the reviews I read said the dress ran small, I ordered a 6 (my usual size) and an 8. I ended up wearing the 6, which fit fine but had a little extra room. So next time I rent this I'll get a 6 and a 4, to see if the 4 gives me a snugger fit. I wore it with the Ben-Amun chain reaction necklace that the model is pictured wearing, and the two pieces worked really well together. Very Old Hollywood. Pardon the headless picture...I forgot to take any full body pictures of the dress at my birthday party, so I put it back on the next morning to snap a pic (and didn't want my hangover-face to distract from the lovely dress). Thanks for another great renting experience RTR!

Classy dress
I did not end up wearing this dress because I liked the 2nd style dress I rented better. However this dress looked nice. I did not feel it was too poofy. It looked very classy. The torso did have some extra fabric for my body (I have a short torso) but it would have been wearable. The fabric of the white portion makes this dress significantly dressier, and jewelry would really help dress it up.

Love the drop waist and full skirt. Very fun dress. Wore it with a bold necklace.
Skirt has a pattern on it and is somewhat full. It's very cute.

Super cute and comfortable as well.
The top of the dress is a great stretchy material and the skirt is a nice thick fabric. There is a great texture and weight to the skirt fabric which made is perfect for a bridal shower in March. It did not feel too summery at all. I paired it with a black leather motorcycle jacket (not shown) to add a little edgy-ness to the dress. I ordered both a 2 and 6 ( 4 was not available) and ended up wearing the 2. I have an athletic build and clearly not petite, so in my opinion, the dress runs big. I was 5-10" with heels on and thought the skirt length was fine too. I could have easily worn the 6, but I liked the way the skirt fell with the smaller size.

Fun and classy dress!
I wore this dress to my own birthday dinner. I thought it was a very fun dress. In fact, I said it was my modern 80's dress. The skirt is very flouncy, and the white material is definitely a heavy brocade. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but I thought it was different in a good way. The bodice fits well and is very flattering, but do be aware that the skirt is very fitted where the black and white fabrics meet. I thought it would have more give there than it did, so just be aware that it will fit tightly. Overall, I enjoyed it, and I felt good on my birthday!

So elegant
This was a beautiful dress, and I so wanted it to work out. It was either because my torso is short or my height, but I didn't quite fill out the bodice and had a couple of extra inches at the top near shoulders. I ended up wearing my back up for my birthday dinner, but I think this would have looked great as well.

Sadly just didn't work on me
I unfortunately didn't end up wearing this dress. It is super cute and I think it would definitely be flattering on many body types- just not mine. I'm 5'7", 125# with a long torso and very narrow hips. The length of the black part of the dress just didn't seem long enough on me and my hips aren't enough to keep it pulled down. This caused the skirt to flare out more and begin above my hips. Even the stretchy black material near the white skirt was pulling away from my body. I think this would look best on those with shorter torsos or are generally more petite. As long as the skirt hits in the right place on you (I pulled the dress down for effect when I tried it on) it won't pouf too much and is very elegant and pretty.

Some one I know said I always look so fashion forward.
This was sent to me as a replacement dress and I was nervous it was going to be too short ( I am 5'2) but the length was fine and the dress was fun . Everyone was in black and even tho I was too the dress really stood out .It was also form fitting on torso held everything in nicely. I wore it with black tights and a long necklace. Pros: comfort, material is nice , loved the torso material Cons: was a little tight on my hips so didn't lay exactly straight but wasn't a problem

Conservative Option.
I wore this dress for an outdoor wedding in February in San Diego. The fabric is heavier so it kept me warm on the slightly chilly day even though it was short and strapless. The dress was beautiful, although if you have a larger backside as I do, it does hit a bit weird in the back, pretty much mid-backside. But even with the slightly odd fit I got a ton of compliments and it was great to dance in, although watch it if you drop it low because the bottom of the dress is likely to expose a little bit too much with a lot of movement up and down. Would rent this again in a heartbeat.

Loved the dress. Easy to order on the Ap. arrived in 1 day as ordered. Love this site!
Loved this dress. Wore it to the taping of an awards show. It was perfect. Runs small. I ordered the 2 and 4 but the 2 was perfect. It's very short!! So high heels a must. Got lots of compliments. Would definitely love to own this dress!

Modern look
I got lots of compliments that the dress was cool and modern. The skirt portion is made of a very thick material (kind of like your great-grandma's drapes), which was nice. Overall, a high quality dress that fit nicely.

Amazing dress with classic colors and design. Loved it so much! Received many compliments.
Wore it to a sweet sixteen party and was comfortable to dance in all night. Perfect fabric and I loved the white brocade skirt. Would recommend wearing black or red heels.

The dress was so simple but classic. The color block style is very fashionable and flattering.
The 4 was a better fit on me because I am smaller on top and with the loose fitting bottom it worked perfectly. Adding a fun statement necklace and simple camel colored heals were great accessories and really jazzed it up. I wore the dress to a fancier rehearsal dinner and received so many compliments and felt great in the dress! I highly recommend the dress for an unforgettable evening out!

Barn Party
I wore this dress to a charity event that was a Cowboy /Barn Party theme. The other reviews said the dress was short, but I figured it was ok since I was going to be in cowboy boots and not heels. It was really short, but worked. The material in the skirt part is thicker and I would not have worn it if it wasn't for the theme of the party. Bottom line, I didn't love the dress and would not have worn it, if it was outside of a barn party.

Super cute and fun.
I made a special trip to Manhattan to work with a stylist and pick my birthday dress. This is the one I left with :) I had seen this dress on-line but never ordered since I wasn't sure how it would lie on my lower stomach. It doesn't go straight down on the hips, but cinches at the waist and then continues down. Very cute. The skirt flared out a little, but overall flattering. Some commented that it was too short -- I'm 5'4" and didn't feel it was too short at all.

Great dress! Super comfortable and very flattering.
First time I have ever rented a dress. I was really worried about ordering online. I am not normally a dress person but loved this dress! I was worried the white shirt may hit me in the hips and make me look like I have larger hips, but it did not. Wore this dress for an evening house party that was outside with lawn and decks. This dress is great, easy to dress up or down and is super comfortable. Could not decided on jewelry or shoes, but you pretty much cannot go wrong with this dress. Finally decided on some color for jewelry and wedges for the lawn. Would love to dress it up more next time with killer heels, I was worried about lawn :) One thing I was not aware of is the bottom of the dress is patterned and the fabric is fairly heavy. People thought it was fun and cute! I had a great time in it.

This is a great dress. Fit true to size and it was stretchy for bustier women. Could easily be dressed up and down. It was not too short, but I am 5'1. Very comfortable.

This dress was amazing. I rented from the store in Las Vegas, and I'm so grateful I did, because this dress didn't jump out at me online. It was so flattering on, and incredibly comfortable. I went to see a show, and it was perfect. I paired it with a Kate Spade necklace I also rented, and everything was perfect. Loved this dress

Only for the straight and narrow!
I wanted to love this dress, but unfortunately it just didn't work for my shape. The torso of the dress seemed very long, and the ruffle hit at such an odd place on my body - causing it to billow out in the most unflattering way. While it could have been workable with a belt and being pulled down all the time in the front, the back was bad news. Talk about bubble butt!

Cute party dress
I rented this for a casual city wedding / cocktail party. I wound up wearing the 2 instead of the 4 because the dress is made to be form fitted and there was a gap on top of my neck on the back of the 4. The neckline is higher than I would normally choose but it was really cute & flattering. I wore it with a huge Kate Spade statement necklace. A fun dress! Highly recommended.

I ended up not wearing this dress because I didn't like the material on the skirt. It looked like curtains to me. The dress was very conservative and not my style.

Nice construction - not for me.
I did not wear this to my day event. I felt the material was to heavy for a summer event and the drop waist was a bit awkward on me. I'm curvy and I'd surely have to pull it down all the time. Not a good time. I feel it runs true to size. And I would have worn the 6.

Amazing dress for any occasion
I rented the dress for my senior headshot pictures. The dress was beyond beautiful and it fit perfectly. Nor the skirt or top were too tight. I paired it with a pink and white statement necklace to bring out the top of the dress and contrast with the skirt. My photographer loved the dress even though he didn't originally want me to wear it. I will definitely rent it again.

Cute dress
This dress looks better in person than in photos, however, it still wasn't the look I was going for for a wedding. It fit well, I just didn't like so much squareness up top.
