So so fun!
What a fun dress! I wore this to a black and white themed party, and got too many compliments to count. It has a comfortable, non-clingy fit, but comes across as super sassy. The flirty skirt is perfect, and just overall it was a blast to wear and fun to dance in. Love it.

Basic and comfortable yet unforgettable!
Wore this to my company Christmas party - it was perfect. Classifies as an LBD so it fit the occasion, but completely original and individual. My favorite part is how COMFORTABLE it was! It was fitted enough to show off the figure, but loose enough to still enjoy all the amazing food at the party.

Stood out even in a room full of sequin and tassel dresses at 1920's themes party
Adored this dress. It's shapeless but feminine. I have a small bust and found it to be snug across the chest. The length was perfect for me but I am quite tall, about 6 ft with heels. Photos don't do the movement of the dress justice. Jazzed it up for a Gatsby theme because I didn't want to look to 'costumey'

Fun times!
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.

Perfect for Music Recitals (work event)
Being short, this dress was long enough to for "work appropriate" and great sheath fit. The material was lighter for summer too. Had compliments from both parents and students at my music school.

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!

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;-)

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!

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!!

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!

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.

This dress won my election!
This is one of the most creative dresses yet it's so simple. A nice shift that works for an office/professional environment by day just by wearing a black blazer, and a party dress on its own at night. I wore this with a blazer when I gave my candidacy speech, and so many people remembered me as the "piano girl" as I campaigned. I'm typically size 0, and the 38 fit fine. Quite roomy but still acceptable appearance.

48 does not equal a 12/10!
This dress is adorable -- I wanted to wear it for a flapper party. BUT, I'm usually a 10/12, so I ordered a 48. It was GIGANTIC on me. I should have ordered a 44, especially given how much extra length the higher sizes have over the model's pic -- it went down to my knees and I'm 5'6". This is a loose silhouette, probably best on leggy, straight-down kind of ladies. I am an hourglass, so may have added a belt if it wasn't so huge to get some waist definition.

The PERFECT dress. Belt it for an even more flattering look!
I absolutely LOVED wearing this dress. It was so unique and well-made and I got compliments all night. It's definitely a looser-fitting swing style, so be aware of that when picking size (read: size down for your 2nd one!). I sized up because I was concerned about it being too short, and I shouldn't have worried. It was the perfect length, even when belted, and I think it would have worked on a variety of heights. Although RTR accidentally sent me 2 of the size 46 (I ordered 44 and 46, I'm usually a 6) and it fit large on me, it was a happy accident because I ended up belting the dress to make it fit and the resulting fit-and-flare look was a lot more flattering than the original cut would have been, even in the smaller size that I would have liked to wear. That said, do not think twice about renting this dress! The RTR stylist I contacted about the size was as helpful as she could be, because I only noticed the sizing issue on the morning of my event, and even though they were unable to ship me the smaller size on same-day notice, I felt so comfortable in the dress and really loved wearing it. Thanks for a great night!

Not your average LBD
I adored this piano dress. I stood out at our company holiday party. It is perfect to pair with red shoes and lips. I didn't need to accessorize much since the piano pleat is so fun. The fit skims the body and is very classy.

I work in the music industry, so this piece was a great conversation starter. Really cute!
I ordered the 0 and the 2. I could have worn either size but the 0 was slightly tighter on the bust area so chose the 2. Keep in mind it's a shift dress so it's not form-fitting, but fortunately because it's black in color there isn't the pregnancy look effect and the shorter length keeps it sexy. I received a ton of compliments on the dress, and it looked even better than the pictures -- the material is great and light-weight. A+

1920's Flapper Dress! "The Hit of the Party!!!!"
I wore this dress to a 1920's Gatsby themed wedding! And I was the HIT of the party! from the moment I walked in people would come over to express their delight in this dress! "You're a PIANO!" they would exclaim! The bride even told me that I was the best dressed there! I paired the dress with a simple black clutch, funky fun designed tights, knotted string of pearls, and sequenced headband. A unique take on the 1920's flapper-style! Totally perfect!

A very different dress!
Absolutely LOVED this Moschino shift. I wore it to conduct interviews and it was perfect for a full day affair. I dressed it down with a leather jacket and booties, but it's definitely a dress you can jazz up or dress down. Highly recommend!!

This dress was anything but ordinary!
LOVE this dress—it's such a conversation-starter. Also, important, it's flattering (short, but balanced out by the A-line cut) and comfortable. It was the perfect birthday party dress, and it's a great one to dress up or down with shoes, hair and accessories.

I'm a musician and I rented this for our New Year's Eve gig.
I had ordered a 12 (48) and wanted to get a size 10 as a backup, but it was unavailable. I think the 10 would have fit a little bit better, since the 12 was kind of shapeless on me. It was very comfortable and cute. I wore with black tights and booties and a cardigan on top (since it was freezing cold out).

If I had a dollar for every compliment I received, the dress would have paid for itself 3 times over
As others have mentioned this dress runs a bit large. I am a solid 2, but went for the smaller size (38) in this dress. That being said, this dress is adorable and fun and flirty. I felt cute and like the life of the party. It wasn't too tight anywhere, so I felt comfortable eating and drinking all night long. I wore this on New Year's Eve to the symphony (and out to eat after) and felt that it wasn't too dressy or too sexy for the occasion. Could easily be dressed up or down. Highly recommend.

So many compliments! Perfect for any music related event.
The other reviews are right. This runs VERY big. I normally wear a 10, but ordered an 8 as my back-up. I have a bit of a tummy, and yet the 8 was way big (both in the arms and stomach). I couldn't get a replacement size soon enough so I wore it with a belt and a cardigan (which was fine for a day event in January). I could have worn a 6 easily. All that aside, I wore this to a show at the Kennedy Center and got soooo many compliments! I even had a few people gasp and point! I hope this dress is offered for sale soon....I will buy it in an instant!

I'm in that zone between a 6 and 8, so I ordered both and went with the 6 which fit perfectly.

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.
