Wore it to a piano concert in Carnegie Hall and it was perfect!
The fit is loose. I got both 38 and 40 and wore the 38. I'm 5'5" and 115 lbs. The dress was so cute, even got compliments from strangers on the street.

Worn for a graduation and it was surprisingly lightweight/breathable. Didn't want to return.
Worn for my brother's HS graduation and chosen because of theme (since he's heading to a music college). Fit true to size, forgiving in the waist. Very cute and flirty dress. I received a ton of compliments and hated to have to return it.

Perfect for Magic and Mystery
We had a night at a magic show and this fit the event perfectly. I worried that the keys might not stay in place, but the material is heavy and they were perfectly behaved. I will rent this again. I have slim hips and a small chest so it was good for me, but it does not offer much room in those two areas.

Wore to our annual school fundraiser which had a musical theme. Absolutely perfect!
Perfect beautifully made shift. Great shift dress fit: fitted on bust and light on hips - very flattering. Lovely neckline and shoulder cut. Dress is great for dancing in as the keyboard swishes around. Definitely on the shorter side but I wore it with opaque black tights so not a problem. Ivory keys would look better with tanned legs. Got lots of compliments. Wish I could wear it again. Would be great for a jazz or 50's party.

Such a fun dress!
I absolutely loved this dress! I ordered the 42 and 44 and ended up wearing the 44. The odd thing is that the 42 for much looser than the 44. The piano keys were different on the two dresses. I liked the ones better on the 42 but the 44 had a nicer snug fit. Lots of compliments, very comfortable, definitely Recommend!

Fit was great, comfortable, really liked the material of the dress. It was a lot of fun to wear and definitely received a lot of compliments and people wanting to play the piano haha. I paired it with a black and white statement necklace and black flats.

So Unique and Fun
This dress won the night. I was worried that the "keys" would flare out too much, but the dress hung perfectly. I wore with black tights and heeled booties. I'm curvier on the bottom and was worried about wearing the shift dress style since they tend to be too loose at the waist and too tight at the bottom on me - This dress is portioned well. I received many compliments throughout the night on this unique dress - Don't be afraid to stand out!

LOVE this dress! Perfect dress for a fun formal party. A LOT of compliments.
A little short for my height, but it fell straight. Very comfortable. If you have an athletic build, you may want to order a size down.

Perfect for a night out in Nashville!
I got so many compliments while honky-tonking downtown. Honestly, the first thing I heard when stepping out of the cab for the night was someone saying "I love that dress!" Super comfortable and cuuuuute!

Music people glommed onto me and wanted my dress!!
The size 4 equivalent fit noticeably better than the 6 equivalent, which was very loose. It was such a cute, comfortable dress for a long (and dull) awards banquet, and very comfortable. It was possibly not the most flattering thing for a curvy short person with no waist but looked okay. I would happily wear it again.

Loved it but a little off with the fit
Loved the dress so much I wanted to buy it . Very soft me comfortable with unique design . I got so many compliments !!! One thing is the fit I am 130 lbs with 32DD bra size and those fit me well bit would be nicer if it was smaller . I ordered size 40. It fits and looks like a flapper dress more or less but beautiful indeed . Pair it with pearls black tights and pumps !! Thanks RTR;-)

Great dress!! Fun and easy to wear...also fairly true to size and very forgiving.
It is a bit on the large side; but I wanted it to hang completely loose as I wore tights, boots and a leather jacket for a more "artsy" appeal. I did have to use fashion tape to shorten the dress. The dress was longer on me than than it was pictured on the model. The dress was quite comfortable to wear!

Another Successful rental!!!
Wore this to a Jazz Age Lawn Party and it was another rental hit. I ordered a 40 and 42. I tried on the 40 and it fits nicely so i went with it. It fits just right, not too tight or too loose. I'm a bit short so it hits just above the knees for mebut in a nice way tho. I love the whimsical piano details. I received so many compliments and people were asking to take my picture. It felt good specially after giving birth and being unsure of your new body. Another dress i wish would someday be on sale. Highly recommend it!!!

I ran a fundraiser featuring a dueling piano show fundraiser and this dress was perfect!
The hips were a little tight in the lining but you couldn't tell from the outside. Strangely my backup size (44) fit smaller than the 42 and seemed like an entirely different dress from the fabric to the fit. Thankfully the 42 fit like a glove! I loved that I was able to wear a normal bra and the piano key skirt was really fun to twirl in.

As local Miss New Jersey title holder, this was a perfect dress to wear to Miss America!
Being a pianist myself, I found this dress only appropriate to wear to the 2015 Miss America pageant! I so wish ordering in a petite was an option because, I found this dress ran extremely large ! Nevertheless, I received so many compliments from countless strangers. If it fit better I would strongly consider purchasing it!

dress was perfection for an art unveiling. The artist himself told how much he loved my dress!
Size was hard to figure out. I ordered Size 48..supposed to be like a size 10...it was a little big but because it was a shift dress, it was easy to hide.
KristieDecember 27, 2015
I think that a 48 is more of a 12. You add the two numbers to get the USA size. 4 + 8 + 12. That's probably why it fit big

My husband kept making that "Oh Man You're Hot" face!
I rented this dress for my best friend's birthday party which was held at a dueling piano bar. Let's just say I stood out like a celebrity--the bar owners/promoters were constantly taking pictures of the lady in the Piano Dress. It fit perfectly--I'm pretty tall (5'10") so the short length made my legs look REALLY long! I am 138lbs, 36A and ordered the 42 and 44. The 42 was perfect in every single way--although I didn't dare bend over too far! I cannot say enough about this dress, the compliments I received, and the way my husband watched me all night was unforgettable. Thank you RTR!!

Perfect for any kind of music, theatre, or dance recital!
Loved this dress! I wore this for the opening night of the musical I directed and everyone loved it! The dress is not meant to be form fitting, and runs a little large anyway, so I would definitely suggest going down a size.

Fun dress.
This dress was fun, it definitely runs large though, and is much longer than it would appear on the model. I'm 5'9" and can usually expect the proportions to be not too far off from the model's, but this dress hit my knee. I'd size down 1 or 2 sizes for a more flirty fit. I paired it with the Helmut Lang Tuxedo Blazer for work.

An unexpected choice for a 20s themed party. It was attention grabbing, but clever and not flashy.
Don't trust RTR's size conversions! I rented a size IT 44, which according to Google is equivalent to a size US 10, which is my typical size. No idea why RTR says IT44 = US6 because that's incorrect. That said, the size 44 fit me perfectly. It's a great dress for dancing because the keys fringe flares out nicely.

Fun dress. I received tons of comments. It runs large. I usually wear a size 4. I went down to 40, and probably could have gone down to 38 for a more fitted look.

I loved the whole concept of shopping from home to look and feel fabulous. This was convenient!
The dress is meant to be loose fitting. I have gained some weight recently and prefer an outfit that doesn't draw too much attention to that. The dress was fabulously flattering and unique. My fiancé and I stood out for this Great Gatsby themed wedding. We had a ball while looking great. I highly recommend this dress!!

This dress was the talk of the town! I literally had people stopping me on the street....
This dress is absolutely a show stopper!!! It is so unique, and playful, but simple and elegant. I wore it to a bat Mitzvah and people were stopping me on the street to ask about my dress. Everywhere I went I saw people pointing their finger say "look at that dress". I am very petite and if I owned the dress would have had it taken in.... it was very slimming, but just a little big on me.

I guess this dress is meant to fit loose which I usually don't like. This dress was an exception though. It was very fun to wear, lots of compliments. Wore it to a concert.

Fun and Flirty
Great Dress, I ordered the 46 and 48 only because I was worried about the straight shift style. 46 was just a tad large but it was too cute and fun not to wear. It was a perfect fun night out dress. It was comfortable and even my brother in law said, "I don't normally comment on women's clothes but that is a great dress". I would order again, I felt great in the dress.

Perfect dress for a jazz club date!
Piano-key detail is eye-catching and tastefully done. Keep in mind the dress runs large in the midsection -- adding a tighter jacket/cardigan can help define curves if you prefer. I would rent again in the next size down.

Unique and fun dress that was a conversation piece!
I may try a size smaller next time to see which fit I prefer, but the 40 worked well for my frame. It draped like a shift should, so I wouldn't necessarily say it runs large. I loved the piano key bottom and everyone kept commenting on it throughout the night of my party.

Wore this at my sister's rehearsal dinner, got a million compliments.
I wish I owned this, it's so amazing. It's gorgeous, comfortable, and flattering. It fit very well and was flattering in all the right places. I got many, many compliments at my event and the piano skirt part was very pretty. For those of you who have a bigger chest, I would suggest going up one size than your normal size, because it is a little tight up there. Amazing dress!
