Wore this dress to a Masquerade party and got lots of compliments. It was a fun dress to wear!
I ordered the size 2 and a few days before the event I got an email that it wasn't available. I wore the backup smaller size but it was pretty tight. I think the 2 would have fit better but I really wanted to wear the dress so I made it work. The feathers shed a bit and they also stuck out a little but it wasn't a big deal. I got tons of compliments on the feathers and it was a really fun dress to wear.

Fun dress for special occasions!
I love this dress! It's so fun and different than anything I've ever seen before. Perfect for a Gatsby-themed party. The dress fits me at the waist and hips well but was so large up top, near the chest, underarms, and neck. I had to safety-pin the dress at the back of the neck so that It wouldn't look so large. It also sheds like crazy. I've found feathers on my carpet for months later. Overall I recommend but get multiple sizes to be sure

Loved the feathers!
Overall I loved this dress! I'm a 6-8 and the 10 was actually a perfect fit. The feathers were fun but beware of static cling :) the dress was really comfortable and I felt really beautiful and classy! Another success with rent the runway!

Where the waist band sat on my hips made the feathers stick up. The feathers fell out of the dress very easily

Size up 1-2 sizes. The feathers are exotic & fun--compliments galore. Best of all, fiance LOVED it!
Rented this for a company holiday party for my daughter, who is 5'6" and weighs 128, putting her between a 4 and a 6 in most dresses. After reading many reviews recommending sizing up TWO sizes, we ordered a 6 with an 8 for backup--unfortunately, since we were renting late in the busy holiday season, no 8 was available. (This explains the 4 stars instead of 5.) The 6 was snug, but wearable--and the feathered skirt was exotic and fun; she received compliments all evening from men and women alike. She did leave a small trail of feathers wherever she sat. Best of all, her fiance LOVED it. Excellent first experience from RTR!

Rented this dress for a New Year's Eve party, and the dress was a big hit!
Beautiful dress, but runs a bit small. I normally wear a 6, but based on reviews I read, I ordered an 8. The size 8 fit perfect.

Wore for my 30th birthday celebration in Atlantic City. The feathers add such a fun, whimsical touch to a cute and sexy dress. Fit true to size. Would wear again. Only con- feathers everywhere and static.

Perfect dress for dancing!!
The dress fit great and I received compliments all night long. It was perfect for the wedding because every time I would dance and twirl the feather/tassels would twirl with me. One thing that was a little annoying was I tended to shed some, even when I was just standing around. Overall I was very pleased with the dress.

Super fun and flirty dress
Fit definitely runs small (I normally wear a 0, but I went up to 2 for this dress), as the chest is quite tight. The feeathers are super fun and swinging, and people couldn't get enough of how fluffy the skirt is and moves. Because the feathers flare out right under the thick empire band, this defintely looks best on taller girls, as the skirt adds LOTS of volume to your midsection. I smoothed down the top feathers all night to keep my shape, but this won't be a problem for taller women.

Love the feathers. Fun. Runs small.
Loved it. Would rent again. Perfect for many occasions. I usually wear a 2 or 4 and i am so glad i rented the 6. Little snug but made it to wear I didn't need to wear a bra.

The feather details were amazing!
This dress runs reallyyyyy small and it's also pretty short! I usually wear a 6 in all my RTR dresses and there was no way I could get the 6 on in this style. The back-up size 8 would have fit (albeit it would have been snug) except the zipper was stuck. Major bummer. But i will definitely try to rent this again for a future engagement!

Feathers are just fun!
I wore this dress for an art gallery opening event. It was a lot fun, very flattering, and I got a ton of compliments on it. The feathers do have a tendency to shed a little- I found a few on my coat and on the floor (this I why I rated it 4-stars and not 5). It does run slightly on the small side, nothing extreme, but something to consider when choosing your back-up size.

40th Wedding Anniversary Party!
I wore this dress to an Roaring 20's Gatsby themed 40th anniversary party. It was the perfect dress for the occasion. I received so many compliments! I recommend going one size up. The skirt of the dress has no give / stretch and if you have curves it makes the fit of the dress more comfy.

Speed
This dress SHEDS like you would not believe. It's also quite short and I could not zip it all the way (I'm also a tall girl with a booty so--). Wore it for my birthday dinner and felt like a movie star, although I had to adjust whenever I sat down or stood up. BUT - I felt and looked pretty and that matters the most. Was worried the dress wouldn't arrive on time but luckily it came! Very happy.

Moulin Rouge theme party... the feathers were a hit!
This fit me like a glove! It was my first RTR experience and it was great! I have an athletic build with broad shoulders and bigger thighs but this fit me in every spot. I typically wear a 6/8 in dress sizes but got this in a 10 after reading the reviews that it ran a little small. It was definitely a hit at the event I attended!

Showstopper!!
The dress was perfect for a wedding reception at a trendy downtown hotel in NJ. I received a million compliments. The size two fit me perfectly. Im 5'4 122lbs, 34c bust. I was skeptical after reading the reviews about the slip shifting under the feathers or the bust being to tight, but it was like the dress was made for my body. I experienced no issues ! The feathers stood away from the dress just enough for dramatic effect, but without coming of costume like !

EXCELLENT birthday dress!
This dress is SO MUCH FUN!!! The feathers are freaking beautiful, and as other reviewers pointed out, if you're comfortable getting lots of extra attention and leaving a trail of feathers wherever you go, this is the dress for you! There were some slight issues, in that because these feathers come off so easily, there were some small patches on the back and 1 on the front of missing feathers. It didn't look terrible at all, and I am chill so it didn't bother me, but it was definitely worn. I danced my tush off all night long and this dress kept up! My only beef (reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5) is that it has absolutely no give around the rib cage. It is VERY tight in there and made it hard to breathe when i was sitting down at dinner. This dress DEFINITELY RUNS SMALL. I'm typically a 6 and the 10 fit and was tight in the rib cage so just be aware, SIZE UP FOR SURE. Also, you can't really tell from the pictures, but the top half of the dress is actually a black lace, not solid. Still beautiful, just worth pointing out. Otherwise this is a FANTASTIC dress and I loved wearing it!

Fun, Flirty, and Compliment Worthy
I got so many compliments on this dress. I wouldn't buy it because it's such a statement dress but I LOVED wearing it for night. My profile picture has been me wearing this dress for a solid year. I'm sorry I don't have the picture available to upload but I felt great in the dress and if you like to stand out, this dress will get you plenty of attention. I danced that night and only lost a couple feathers that I noticed. Some reviewers seemed to lose more and thought this was an issue but I didn't have a problem. The dress arrived in good condition without any noticeable feather loss.

FUN AND FLIRTY!
This dress was adorable . . . for the 10 minutes that I wore it around my house! I rented it for my birthday, but I couldn't wear it because I literally could not sit down in it. RTR was great and gave me a credit since it was too small, but I LOVED the dress. I ordered the 6 because they no longer carry the 8, and I seriously considered eating my birthday dinner standing up, lol, but my husband convinced me to be reasonable. If you normally wear a 6/8, I would caution against it, the skirt has no give. But if you normally wear a 4/6, you should be good.

Unique rocker chic!
I really enjoyed wearing it to a wedding. I normally wear a size zero so I ordered a 2 and 4 when I read that it runs small. Thank goodness I got the 4! It fit tight! I liked dancing in it because the feathers flounced around. Someone told me I looked like a "rocker" which is exactly my style!

Feathers stood out in a sea of sequins
I rented this dress for a sorority semi-formal and absolutely loved wearing it. I got compliments all night, and everyone thought the feathers were awesome! The lace and cut of the top was perfect, but the dress wasn't quite as flawless as some of my other RTR rentals have been. I was slightly disappointed in the color, because the purple to grey ombre wasn't quite as vibrant as I was hoping the feathers would be. The dress is short, and the lining of the skirt is tight so size up! The zippers on my two sizes of this dress were different. When I tried the six, I realized the flimsy zipper was broken so I wore the eight (needed it anyways) and found that the zipper was much more sturdy. Also: be prepared to shed! The feathers do come off and frequently stick out. I kept a dryer sheet in my clutch to get rid of the static on occasion. While the dress wasn't everything I imagined, I would rent again, and I still would have rented knowing all of that upfront. Next time, I'll probably go up one more size just for some extra length, and in hopes that the skirt will flare a little more like it does on the model in the picture.

Elle Woods would approve - just the right amount of Marilyn & Jackie!
This dress was only available in a 2 and 6, and after reading reviews that it ran small, I was a little concerned. I ordered both and the 2 fit my pear shape perfectly. The reviews mentioned a static issue with feathers. I sprayed them down with static spray and took a dryer sheet to be safe, but never had to use it. I received so many compliments and would definitely order this dress again! Note: I can typically zip anything up myself, but be sure you have another person to help keep the zipper out of the feathers.

Such a fun dress for a zoo fundraiser event!
Great dress! Top is black lace which isn't as evident in the photo. Skirt was so much fun but definitely missing a few feathers. Top was snug and I'm normally a 34B, so would definitely size up if a larger bust. I would probably prefer a 4, but it was not available for that date, so I made the 2 work.

Fun dress for a 1920s themed party
This is a great dress that will get you lots of compliments. My work was holding a 1920s themed fundraiser and this was the perfect dress for the occasion. I rented the necklace for RTR as well and it was the perfect touch for the theme. The dress did shed feathers everywhere and it was a bit hard to zip on my own but once I got it on it was fine. I usually wear a 2 or 4, so the dress does run a bit small. The 6 was a great fit. The only thing I did not like about the dress was that it was a bit itchy if I sat for more than a few minutes, so if you are going to a sit down dinner this is probably not a great choice.

Awesome dress for a 1920s flapper party!
Beautiful, fun, special dress. It does run small, I wore the size 2 for comfort, I am usually a size 0 at 5'2" and 105 lbs, no hips, small chest. I could barely zip up the 0. I could have worn it but it wouldn't have been as comfy. The 2 was more comfortable so I went with it. Because of the feathers all along the skirt, you don't need to suck in your stomach all night so it's a super comfy dress to wear. Skirt is short, worked well for my petite height. I highly recommend the dress, I received many compliments all night. Oh, and the feathers are more purply with some pink, with hints of grey. I couldn't tell from the photos online exactly what shade they were but I ordered a grey/purply headband and the feathers were a fantastic match.

Would rent again just because of the number of compliments I received!
I ordered the 4 and the 6, and there's no way the 4 would have fit, as the 6 was tight EVERYWHERE. It still fit and was relatively comfortable, though. I would probably suggest sizing up- I am almost always a 2 or 4. The feathers were a huge hit. I wore this to an event at a contemporary museum and it was perfect. So many people stopped me to say how much they loved the dress. I would rent again! Dress was in great condition too, and no feathers were shedding.
