Perfect 80s party dress!
Great color with fun movement and layers. Not as short as it looks on the model but some layers are shorter than others. Good secure strapless fit.

Wore to an 80's themed New Years party
This dress was perfect for the theme of the party. The fit was ok....the top was a little loose and the mid section was a little snug. Loved the color and was fun to wear something that I normally would never order.

Essence of Parisian "can-can"
I rented this for a Moulin Rouge-themed NYE 2016 party at Chicago's Nellcote Restaurant. The dress was bold and high-fashion. In terms of fit, the 8 was a tad too big in the bodice area, specifically the bust. The 6 would have been perfect. However, RTR didn't have a 6 as a back-up size during my rental period. Having had a more tailored fit in the bodice area would have made me feel less bulky in pictures since the peplum is meant to cinch and highlight the smallest part of the waist. The bust in the 8 was quite roomy and I had to pull my dress up frequently. However, these were personal details I noticed as a wearer. Similarly to other reviewers, I received many compliments!

Dress was awesome.
I'm small up top and bottom heavy and this dress fit perfectly. It was very forgiving and stayed in place all night.

The Dress was a replacement for my original order. At first i was very displeased, but it was a hit.
I ordered an entirely different dress that was a different style. When the dress arrived i quickly called customer service and they explained that the dressed I had originally ordered was damaged & therefore they had upgraded my order to this one. At first glance i was very displeased however I had a flight to catch to make it to the out of state wedding that I had rented the dress for. To my pleasant surprise once I put the dress I received compliments during the wedding and the reception.

Pretty color
I ordered a size 0 in this dress with a size 2 as a back up. I was notified before my shipment that the 0 was returned damaged and was no longer available, but they still sent me the 2 just in case. I am generally a true size 0, and the 2 in this was huge on me (you probably can't tell, but in the side shot my body was turned, but my chest was moving independently of the dress because it sat so far off of me). I am a 34C, so I am not tiny up top, so I was surprised that was so big even in the 2. In the straight on shot, the dress being too large makes me look a lot wider than I am, I think because it has some good structure to the bodice, so it sat out from my body instead of laying towards it. So definitely try to aim for your correct size or smaller. The dress itself is a really pretty color and there's a little sparkle to the dress which is fun. As others noted, the dress is much longer in person than it is on the model (which makes sense because the model is probably like 5'10"), but I am almost 5'7" and it still hit me long enough not to be super flattering. I think it's a really cute dress for someone who is very tall, or if you have a themed event. I would base your sizing off of your waist (if your waist is a small feature for you, then I would size down). There is not any give in the waist, but the rest of it is pretty roomy. I definitely think this would also be very cute on if it had been the correct size :).

Crushed 80's prom in this dress
Don't judge, but I attended an 80's prom a few weekends ago. This dress rocked for the theme. Did JEM style makeup and there was no turning back. Hard to see this being an option outside of theme wear, but not impossible. It's a 2 but I fit into it with no problem with not spilling out of the top so I'd say it runs large.

great dress, overall
I thought for sure I'd wear a 4, but I wore the 2- so this dress runs a little large. The bodice part is quite transparent, which I wasn't stoked about, because I had to wear a strapless bra. It definitely isn't as structured looking on top as in the picture; looks cheaper in person. But, it was fitting for the party I went to and I got a ton of compliments.

Felt a little '80's but fun
Itchy. Better for someone w/ a large bust. I'm 34D w/ a small waist and it was roomy up top.

Pretty color, but didn't end up wearing the dress
I think is color is nice on this dress but that's about it. I didn't end up wearing it because I didn't think it was special enough for the event I was attending. The tulle edges were extremely flat and just hung down and the dress is much longer than I thought based on the photos. It is really an unflattering length in my opinion being neither short nor long. There was nothing flattering to my figure when wearing this dress as it gave me no shape. Probably one of my least favorite RTR rentals.

Fun and flirty. Definitely unique!
This dress was on my list for months! I finally had a great time to wear it! The waist was snug and fit well. The top was toooooo large and even with a push-up bra, was gaping all night with the boning. The fun flouncy skirt was not even close to the architectural detail I was hoping for. Too soft, maybe needed an extra press to accent the detail of the layers of this dress. The color was perfect with a tan and a fun party dress, but the fit was too awkward to feel comfy.

Vibrant & Flirty
Really vibrant color and comfortable enough to dance the night away. The top was a challenge for DD but stayed in place. Being 5'4", the skirt was not as short as on the model. Reached closer to my knees. Received tons of complements.

Best dress yet!
Rented this dress for carnival party. It was perfect! Comfortable and flattering. It covers your stomach. I could dance, eat, and drink with no problem. It was hard to zip! I needed help both times I put it on and it was still difficult! Also the fabric rubs a little under the arms but nothing I couldn't handle. The wow and perfection of this dress made it worth it.

Loved this dress. Wonderful balance of sass and class.
Had tried on the 2 in-store, which was just slightly too tight so I thought the 4 would be perfect but it gaped around the bust and I literally could pull 4 inches of fabric together. (honestly think this might have been mislabeled or else Monique has a big gap between her sizes). Silver accessories were a must. Wore my hair up with a statement earring. Absolutely lovely!

BEAUTIFUL COLOR!
The color is amazing and the dress is gorgeous after some ironing but the size... chaotic. I usually wear a 4 and order as a second size 6 just to be sure. the 6 was HUGE and the 4 was HUGE as well! I wore it anyway because I had no other options but i had to wear double sided tape everywhere to get the dress to stay on! Would have definitely gone for a 2.

Wore dress for my engagement shoot
Fit was okay, dress slid down a bit, bust area may be too roomy for small chested ladies. I have large bust and it felt just okay. Great color but dress is a little worn on the side hooks-they kept getting undone because they are too weak.

Pretty but expected more.
Size runs large. Zipper was hard to get up no matter the size. Looks better on model as the dress was much longer on me as I am shorter. Tulle was a little itchy on the top. Wish it was a bit less poofy as well.

Be ready to be the life of the party!
The color pops and wows- goes great with a strong lip color and edgy minimal shoes and accessories. This is a dress you can not fade into the background in! Its not as short as it looks on the model, but I am petite so the long layers came to my knees. The peplum structure works well and is flattering- but I found the 4 was a bit loose in the bust area (and I am a 34 C+) and the 2 would just not even zip up.

The color is incredible. Thousands of complements. Strangers stopped to say how much they loved it.
I got the 8 which was a tad too big. The six would have been perfect. The color is incredible. Just a fun, flirty dress to wear.
