The beaded top and tulle skirt are a fun and beautiful pairing.
This was my backup dress but I ended up wearing it because I loved it so much. I am 5 months postpartum so I was a little worried about finding the right fit, the way it's cut was perfect for my body type. I wore this to a fall wedding and paired it with drop earrings and simple black pumps. The tulle skirt is so much fun and the beaded top is beautiful!

Serendipity for my daughters homecoming!
I actually rented this dress to attend a wedding. I wasn't able to attend and the dress was a bit large on me. I'm a 0 and the 0 was a bit wide on top. However, my 15yo daughters homecoming dance was that same weekend so I gave her the option of wearing the dress. She is normally between a 0 & 2. Both fit her well but she felt more comfortable in the 2. It looked stunning on her! It was as if it was meant for her. It was age appropriate and suited her personal style perfectly. She looked like a pixie queen.

Stylist Review!
I felt like a stylist ballerina in this dress. It was so classy and the top was very unique. Please just be aware that you need to make sure you have the proper undergarments as you will see your bra through the top it you do not. Do not hesitate to rent this as you will truly show off your style when you rent this dress!

This dress is simply stunning! it was perfect for the Nutcracker! I felt like a ballerina in it.
The fit was perfect for me. I am 5'6" 128 lbs and 34B. The 2 was perfect. The 4 was too much fabric which bunched up around the middle and made me look thicker in the torso area so the 2 was ideal for me. I did not want to take this dress off and the compliments were aplenty for the night!! Great dress, great service, and I cannot wait to need RTR for another event!

Amazing dress!!
I rented this for an "old Hollywood" New Year's Eve party. The dress I originally rented was returned late/damaged and this was one of my backup dresses. It ended up being perfect for the party. I wore the size 8. It was the first one I tried in and it felt ok so I never tried the 6 on. The skirt was so much fun! The decorative top irritated my arms a little but not super annoying. Overall I really enjoyed this dress!

Elegant/royal look.
I typically wear a size 6, yet the 4 was a perfect fit since I'm lean. Color and style of dress is classy. I did use a mini steamer to smooth out the wrinkles in the hem.

Very comfortable and stylish. The skirt was rather poofy, but not too much. Very quality dress.
The detailing on the top was great, and made it so you didn't need to wear a bra. Very beautiful dress.

I got several compliments and felt gorgeous in this dress!!!
The 4 was definitely too small, I didn't even bother trying it on, but the 6 fit like a glove. I wore the same torso covering strapless white bra that I wore at my own wedding (I appreciate something helping me suck it all in and my large chest doesn't cooperate with a traditional strapless bra), and it didn't show a bit through this dress!

Unique, showstopper of a dress
I ordered both the 6 and the 8 in this dress (I'm always somewhere in between) and for this dress, the 6 was perfect! It wasn't too tight and it fit well. This dress is beautiful and received so many compliments from all attendees of the ball. The torso of the dress is covered in intricate silver stitching and navy blue fabric that reminds me of gowns from the 1600s. LOVE! The skirt is made of about five layers of navy blue tulle. My size 6's skirt was crumpled up when it came in the mail, but I used a steamer and straightened them out. (The 8's skirt was picture perfect, however) I loved the skirt, it was great to spin in and stand out in a world full of figure hugging dresses. That being said, if you don't want a full skirt, don't order this dress! For me, this was a perfect dress, and I felt like a ballerina/princess all night. I highly recommend!

The dress is absolutely stunning! Loved the tulle at the bottons
The fit was just right. Be cautious with the arm holes. The arm holes in the 10 were snug and could easily rip or be damaged which is why I went with a size 12. It looked like there was damage repair done on the 10 but I didn't want to chance it so I work the size 12 which was just right. I am 5 feet tall and work 3.5 inch high heels and got compliments through out the night.

Exquisite dress!
This dress is beautifully made, with embroidery, sequins, and tulle. However, I felt fat in it, and not very sexy. The dress is high waisted, so I felt my belly looked big. It is not the fault of the dress. I am extremely muscular, and need to wear something more slim lined and fitted. The dress would be adorable on a young, slim woman.

Beautiful and timeless
The tulle is exquisite though I do recommended having it hand for a day or using a steamer for any wrinkles. The beading on the top is beautiful and the color is on point. Runs true to size though I could've sized down.

It was ok, but not amazing
The fit was true to size, but this cut made me look even shorter than I already am. It is very pretty, but would be better suited for a taller person.

I didn't end up wearing this dress, but plan to rent in the fall for a wedding. I'm small chested (32A), so I would size down for the next rental. The dress itself is BEAUTIFUL with amazing details!

I have never gotten so many compliments! I felt gorgeous in this dress.
I wore the smaller of the two dresses bc of my small chest. I didn't need a bra, but you would need a strapless if wore one. There are no cons to this dress. It was very comfortable and easy to dance in. I will definitely be renting it again!

The fit was really great for me. I am an hour glass shape (5'5" 135 lbs, 34C cup, 29 inch waist, 37 inch hip) and the dress was incredibly flattering. The tulle lies perfectly, I particularly liked that it wasn't too over-the-top/poufy. I typically wear a size 6 in dresses and had to wear the size 4, which I was actually grateful for bc the size 6 dress had not been pressed very well and was a bit disheveled.

Beautiful dress. Tons of compliments.
This is a gorgeous dress. It's perfect for a fall wedding (although you might need to wear a jacket). The dress looks very high-end and the tulle skirt will make you feel like a ballerina. The buttons in the back came undone a couple of times throughout the night, so just keep an eye on them!

More matronly than expected
This was my backup dress, sent because my original dress was returned damaged. This dress is well made and fits true to size. The skirt is full and layered and the top is just as pictured. I wouldn't recommend for anyone under 40. Not a real stunner, too boring for my taste.

I rented this dress for my Matron of Honor as a last minute backup dress and she loved it!!
Very pretty dress. Needed to be steamed due to wrinkles acquired from it being shipped, but otherwise it was great. We needed to pin the back because it was too big at the top and didn't lay right, but that was also a quick fix. Overall, I was really happy with the dress and it was nice to have my MOH stand out from the rest of my wedding party.

Intricate, whimsical, and fun!
I ordered this dress as a backup and was so sad when both my primary dress AND this dress were absolutely beautiful -- how could I possibly choose which one to wear?? The gold threading on the top of this dress is so pretty and the floaty tulle skirt made me feel like a ballerina. I ended up wearing my primary dress to the event I had ordered it for, and then decided to go to high tea the next day wearing this beauty, because why not! There is a lot of fabric in this skirt - way more than I expected - so I cinched my waist in with a skinny belt to ensure that my shape didn't get lost in all that fabric. The dress is also more of a high/low dress, with the back being considerably longer than I was expecting. It wasn't a problem for me since I'm 5'8", but I could see how this dress wouldn't be as flattering on shorter ladies.

This dress fit the event perfect!
This dress fit me perfect! I ordered the size 2 and 4, thinking I would probably end up wearing the size 4. But it turns out that the size 2 was perfect! The bottom of the dress is pretty poofy though, think princess/ballerina. And there is a small hook on the back that kept coming undone. But I loved it and it was perfect for my holiday work party at a French restaurant.

I couldn't have loved this dress more! It for like a glove but wasn't too tight. The skirt was so fun and flowy--perfect for wedding dancing! I got so many compliments and would definitely rent again! I'm very short (5'0) but the length didn't look awkward at all. Seriously--rent this!!!!

Great dress for a fancy western party!
I went to a Boots and ballgown charity event and this dress was perfect. Being a little on the bigger side the mesh can cut it in on the underarms but not too bad. I got lots of compliments and told I looked like a princess.

I was hosting/performing in an awards show. I wore two dresses, this was the first one.
The dress fit true-to-size; I probably should have worn a 4 but the 6 was okay, just a little big around the bodice. The skirt was fluffy and fun and the embellished bodice looked fantastic onstage. It was a little more black and less blue in person than it looks in the pictures but the blue hue is there and it was still beautiful. It was comfortable and fun; exactly what I hoped it would be.

GREAT DRESS, got so many compliments, definitely felt elegant and pretty. I was sad to take it off.
Fit runs a little small, I'm not normally a 12 and it was snug enough I didn't need to wear a bra. Super comfortable, highly recommend letting the dress breath and de-wrinkle when you get it. Dress does feel delicate so I was a little nervous wearing it at first but got over that quickly.

Beautiful Elegant Dress
This dress has beautiful details on the bodice. I felt like a ballerina with the tulle skirt. I loved wearing this dress, and I received many compliments. My only complaint is that the sleeves were very scratchy/itchy against my arms when I was dancing. Otherwise the fit and material very elegant and perfect for the formal event.

Fun dress!
I wore this for my wedding rehearsal and after party. The dress was so fun to wear and whimsy! It came very wrinkled but it didn't take long for the wrinkles to just fall out of the tulle, so don't worry. This was perfect for my body! I am tall and curvy, but the length was great as well as the fit. The details in the dress are GORGEOUS! I highly recommend this dress.

I rented this as a bridesmaid's dress for a friend's wedding and it worked wonderfully! Very pretty
The fit seemed pretty true to size and the dress was very comfortable -- the only issue I had was that the netting on the top was a little lose. It's not terribly form-fitting, so it won't do much to show off your figure, but it's fantastic for dancing!

Beautiful!
Wish I could have captured this dress on camera, but the wedding was a bit dark and our phones just didn't quite cut it. I "wish"there was such a thing as a 3 because it would have been perfect. 2 was just a bit too tight and 4 was, you guess it, a bit too big. I wore a size 4 to be comfortable and it was just fine. The only thing that bothered me was the toll. There's a lot of it and I was bothered when it didn't lay correctly. Of course, this was just me. No one else noticed.
