The dress of course, it was the talk of the party. Never had so many compliments.

The dress runs small so the back up size 12 was perfect. Although the picture shows black and white feathers, they are actually grey and pink which worked just as good. I recommend this for anyone wishing to be the hit of the party.

.

This was the smallest 8! I am a solid 6, sometimes a 4, and the 8 would barely zip and when it did, it bunched in the back and was too short. This would probably be best for someone that is not as tall as I am, or long in the torso. It was lovely and I was so sad that it didn't work out.

Fabulous dress! Fun and flirty with a dash of lace. RTR customer service saved the day!

Rented this for my birthday/anniversary party that had a cowboy and señorita theme. The dress' flair and flirtyness was perfect. I'm typically a size 0 in RTR dresses and ordered the 2 as my backup. First impression, wonderfully light dress. The lace looks rich but doesn't feel weighted. Subtle bow around the waist, tho' it's slightly more empire'ish than a natural waisted dress. The 2 was too big -as expected- and the 0 fit ok but not perfect for my body. The top seemed a tad baggy around the chest area (a padded bra would've done the trick) but the feathery bottom -which is what I loved about the dress- was just not right for me. The feathers are gorgeous and beautiful but they are so light that as small as I am on top, those feathers made my bottom look huuuuge (wide) because they kinda float in their lightness. Also, in the website the feather colors seem black and white with a touch of pink. In reality, my dress feathers were more grayish and pink as seen in the photo. The body is black and the bottom is gray and pink. Gorgeous and flirty dress, unfortunately it just wasn't for me! (But of course the RTR girls saved the day!)

I loved wearing this fabulous dress for this extraordinary wedding.

This dress was so much fun to wear! It was very playful but at the same time dramatic and elegant. It ran true to size and fit beautifully, I felt as if it had been tailor-made for me. I wish I owned this dress!

So much fun!

This was such a fun dress to wear for my Parisian themed birthday party! The lining does not have any stretch to it so if you have larger hips you may want to size up. The 6 fit perfectly and was not too tight. The lace is beautiful and the feathers make this dress. They have a blush tone to them. The dress is very well made and lined. The silhouette on the model looks A-line but it did not look like that on me since I am a pear. Overall , really pleased with this rental, a standout!

Beautiful, but didn't fit.

I usually wear a 12-14, and unfortunately this only goes up to size 12. It wasn't even close to fitting, so I wore a different dress that night. The feathers are very dramatic and I definitely would have worn it if it fit.

It's fit perfectly true to my body. The colors of the feathers were overall darker but still looked beautiful

What a great dress!

I rented this fun dress for a romantic anniversary getaway, however, we had to cancel the trip so I didn't get to wear the dress - at least no further than around the house. I did not find it ran small like other reviewers - I thought it was true to size. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the top is kind of plain and the overall cut could be sexier for such a fun dress. Definitely runs on the long side - I wouldn't suggest it for shorter ladies.

Dress could not have been more perfect!

I absolutely loved this dress. I wore it for a black tie optional wedding. Originally I thought it would be too much for a black tie, but it was absolutely perfect. It was at an art museum so it was the perfect dress for the setting. Tons of compliments from all. It does run small. I typically wear a 4, and the 6 was perfect. I also didn't expect the dress to be as pink as it was (judging from the photo of the model). This was fine for me. Also, zipping the dress was a challenge with all the feathers. You definitely need help with the zipper. I didn't really shed a lot of feathers like others had mentioned. Overall, this dress was spectacular. I'm so glad that I rented it.

I rented this for my bachelorette party. It's unique and fun! I received a lot of compliments!!

It's super comfortable and easy to move in. Fitted on top and loose on the bottom. I danced the entire night and the dress was still in one piece.

This dress is so much fun!!

I received so many compliments on this dress. The top is black, and the bottom is more charcoal and light pink. I paired it with simple earrings and charcoal kate spade sparkly shoes. I would rent this one again in a second!

Have to be really careful with the zipper, as easy to get feathers in it, which means it can get stuck.

I loved this dress. I felt so glamorous and sexy.

I was intimidated by this dress at first. I was self conscious that the feathers made me look too bottom heavy. Some of the feathers were coming off from shipment onto my floor. I wasn't sure how this dress would hold up. Plus it was a little tight in my rib cage (but I'm wider in that area). I decided to rock it and not wear a bra for a better fit. Once I was all dolled up - I adored this dress. I felt so glamorous wearing something that I would never normally buy for myself. It's a very delicate dress but it was surprisingly easy to wear. This was my first RTR experience and I'm now a loyal customer. They let me rent this higher priced rental when one of my sizes was damaged by a prior renter. Customer service was amazing. If you want to spice up your wardrobe - rent this dress!

This dress made a fabulous statement in a big way-Too many compliments to count by both women & men!

Fresh, fun, flirty and sassy. My only regret was having to take it off and return it. This is one of those dresses that instantly puts you in a fabulous mood the second you zip into it. Cannot say enough about how much I adore this dress. One of my all-time favorite party dresses- ever! This dress makes people smile when you walk into a room. I truly felt like Cinderella. The fit is perfect- I can't say one negative thing about it. It was also very comfortable, which is always a bonus in a dress this chic and fab! LOVED it.

I wore this dress for New Year's Eve. It was different and fun and looked great with tights.

I only ended up receiving the size 0 dress because the size 2 was damaged and I was worried it wouldn't fit but it ended up working out great! It was a little tight on my hips but wasn't an issue. I wore a strapless bra and had no issues. The dress also looked really good with tights. The feathers tended to get static which was a little annoying, and they stuck up a lot. You can't tell that from photos which is good.

Super fun and unique dress - got many compliments!

This dress definitely ran small (on me at least), so you may want to order a size or two up. The feathers were so fun, but very static-prone! I alternated between using a dryer sheet and hand cream to calm them throughout the night. The feathers are also a little more pink in color than they appear online. The dress is a little shorter than I expected, but I am not super tall so that wasn't a huge problem. Tall girls may end up showing a little more leg than they expect! But I would certainly suggest this dress for a fancy night out - wish I owned it!

So many compliments!

This was the perfect dress for my bf twin's b'nai mitzvah. Dancing in this dress is so fun, as the feathers follow your every move. No one at the party had on a dress even remotely as special as mine! It was tastefully dramatic! I am a size four everywhere except up top (36D) so had to wear the size 6. Both are true to size, but I couldn't zip the top half of the size 4 due to an abundance of boobage. A great dress!

Really fun but too high maintenance...

I loved the idea of this dress and right out of the box it was fabulous. But as my night progressed in the dry desert climate, static pulled the feathers all over the place. While I was sitting down at dinner the feathers were sticking up onto my chest and I was awkwardly trying to pat them back down into place. The cut of the dress was pretty tight through the hips and waist with zero give. By the end of the night I couldn't wait to get this dress off. In the end, this dress was too fussy and high maintenance to really enjoy the it's otherwise whimsical and unique qualities.

I wanted to keep this dress!

First time renting with RTR and the experience was great! App is very handy for tracking and ordering. This dress was so much FUN! Tons of compliments, easy to wear and great on the dance floor. I am in between sizes right now and probably could have squeezed into the 4 but the 6 was definitely more comfortable. The feathers are a bit more on the fragile side... A few came off when I tried it on and when I would go to the bathroom and you definitely have to be careful zipping it up; however, there are so many that no one would notice. Definitely a must rent!

I rented this dress to wear to Sue Wong's fall/winter fashion show in Los Angeles, it was perfect!

I usually wear size 6 in dresses, and while the 6 did fit, it was a little tight, so I decided to wear the size 8 knowing that I would be sitting a lot and wanted to be more comfortable. This dress is so fun, just make sure you bring a dryer sheet with you when you leave the house because the feathers can sometimes get a little out of control from static. I received so many compliments on this dress, it was perfect for LA Fashion Week, and many of the people at the show thought I was wearing one of the designer's pieces, so that goes to show that in person it looks amazing.

The dresses arrived the day before my event and in great condition! Tons of compliments!!

I ordered a 4 as back up but the 6 was perfect. It was a bit tricky to zip because of the feathers, just go slowly!! I rented it for a Gatsby party and it was a hit!! It's a great dress.

This dress is a subtle attention getter; very classy yet fun !

The fit was a bit small for me, at the top. I'm normally in between a size 2 and 4 on dresses, and I should've gone wtih the 4 but some of the reviews said it run big. I was still able to wear it, but would definitely been more comfortable with a 4. I'm 5.2" so I always worry about the length but this was perfect, not too short or too long. Overall a great dress, and If in between sizes I would go with the bigger one for more comfort and better fit around the waist.

By the end of the night, I couldn't even count how many compliments I received on this dress.

Gorgeous dress, and very striking. My only complaint is the sizing- the two was wayyy too small in the bottom, but the four was large in the top. I ended up going with the four, and just dealing with the excess fabric. Feathers are a beautiful grey/pink/black mix, and the simple top really makes the outfit. Loved it! This was my first RTR experience, and I'll definitely be back for more.

This dress was PERFECT for my bachelorette party!

I typically wear a size 2 but ended up wearing the size 4 in this dress. I thought the lower/feather portion would have some give, but it had absolutely no stretch to it. I was surprised when I initially opened the package because the feathers had a pink and purple tone. The pictures looked more gray and white on the Rent the Runway model. It was such a fun dress and I received many complements while wearing it. I recommend this dress for a glamorous night on the town!

So much fun to wear!

Im usually between and 6 and 8, and went for the 8 with this dress for a little more room in the armholes and a little longer length. Being 6 ft tall, I knew this dress would be short and the waist would be a bit high, but nonetheless, it was super fun to wear and comfortable! The top is a pretty lace and I didn't need to wear a bra which was nice- it's pretty thick, so it does get a little warm! The feathers were so pretty and moved beautifully! I got tons of compliments- I would definitely recommend this dress!

I wore this dress to my boyfriend's fraternity formal, and received a ton of compliments!

I felt like the dress ran a little snug. I'm usually a 4-6 in dresses so those were the sizes I ordered, but I should have gone with the 8. If you have boobs, make your spare size the next size up because the dress runs a bit snug in the chest. It was an excellent above the knee length when standing, but rode way up when sitting, so heads up! The band of feathers at the top liked to flip up, and the feathers were a bit static-y throughout the night. Overall I loved renting this dress and I'll absolutely rent another dress for next year's formal! Fantastic experience!

Great dress to make a fun statement

I wore this dress for a charity ball where the dress code was fun cocktail and it worked perfectly. I would worn that the bottom can be a bit tight if you have a bigger butt like I do, but it isn't noticeable with the feathers. Other reviews said they had trouble with the feathers getting out of control, but I had no trouble with them and I was out in the southern humidity. I got compliments from people of all ages. The lace on the top is very pretty, but you can't tell in pictures that it is lace. I definitely recommend this dress!

Conversation starter!

I rented this for my company's work party and have to admit I was worried at first, it's a lot of dress! But have to say after I got it on I felt amazing and got so many compliments! The 2 fit fine but felt a little tight in the waist but it still looked great. Wish I owned this!

This dress was so much fun and everyone loved how original and different the dress was!

The dress ran small, I fit in the 2. But I opted for the 4 for comfort and room to eat ;). It was fun, free and spunky dress! A lot of people talked about the static of the feathers but I didn't find it too bad. Nothing that a little lotion wouldn't help calm down. Also the keyhole back was adorable. I also just wore a regular strapless bra, and the dress was fitted enough in the boobs it didn't move at all! My only disappointment was the bow in the back snaps on over the zipper, and when I received the dress the button was already loose. Anytime of bending and the button would pop open, so half the night the bow was hanging open from the back.

Very unique and flattering

Super cute, wears similar to the picture except feathers do seem to stick up a lot with static so I found myself pushing them down all night. Wore to a flapper/roaring 20s event and received lots of compliments!
