LOVED this dress. Made me feel beautiful! Perfect for a 1930s Circus theme party.
A little short on me, but wore shorts underneath.

This was fun, flirty and classy all in one.
I usually wear a 0 and the 0 fit perfectly. It is short, so you just have to be careful of your posture and movement. I received so many compliments from people of all ages. This was perfect for a lakeside wedding in a gazebo. Wore with a pair of nude stilletos.

Love the fabric. Wish it was about 1" longer
This dress has no give and runs small. I'm 5'7", 133lbs - normally a size 2/4 and ended up wearing a 6. It was super short and I think I could've even gone with a size 8. Tons of compliments and felt like a princess.

Lots of compliments on this dress, gorgeous in person.
The only difference between the size 4 or 2 that I could tell was the length, what was odd is that the 2 was longer than the 4. The zipper gave me a little trouble in the size I wanted to wear because it was broken when I received it, RTR has outstanding customer service and rectified the situation and I got a rapid response. Even with wearing my backup size, the look of this dress was still flawless.

The prettiest dress I've ever worn.
I am a bit high waisted with a 34" bust, 27/28" waist, 35/36" hips. I normally wear a 4/6 in real life, though I tend to size up for special occasion dresses. Based on the reviews, I ordered a 4, with a size 6 as my backup. The 6 ended up fitting me so perfectly that I didn't even bother trying on the 4. It is hands down the prettiest dress I have ever worn. I cannot count how many compliments I got on this dress. It's gorgeous. The tulle was a bit bunchy and crinkled when I got the dress, so I ended up steaming each layer of tulle individually (starting with the bottom layer first), and it looked brand new!

Don't size down on this one
I based sizing loosely on reviews and my precious RTR experience and ordered a size 2 and 4. Monique Lluillier dresses fit me in a 2. The 4 in this dress fit me very snugly at the waistline and while I could've made it work, it just wasn't comfortable. I'm not sure I would have loved a bigger size on me either as the bottom poofiness of the dress was already quite poofy :) and I don't have a teeny rear. Cute dress but didn't work for me, I pulled something out of my closet last minute for my event.

Super fun dress!
I love this dress and have had my eye on it forever. However, the waist was not flattering on me (a little high and tight on my post baby midsection). So I didn't wear it. Actually, the dress might have run a little bit small, but only a little bit.

Beautiful princess dress
Rented this for my daughter's sweetheart dance. It was absolutely beautiful! She looked like a princess. She rented the 2 and the 4 and ended up wearing the 2. The 4, strangely enough, was shorter than the 2. She was comfortable in it all night and received many compliments! There was a slight tear in the tulle, but not noticeable enough to care about. Would consider renting this again! She is 5'2" and weighs 120lbs with a 34B bust.

Very comfortable! The tulle kept bunching up in the back whenever I sat down and then stood back up but other than that this dress was amazing! I wish I could keep it!

Very classy, very feminine and pretty.
I rented this dress for my daughter's formal HS dance rather than purchasing an over-priced dress she'd never wear again- good idea! It was beautiful and fit her small, size 0 frame perfectly. Dress length is as pictured above the knee (she is 5.5 tall 110 lbs). We had to take about 30 min shaping the bottom mesh when the dress arrived, as it was mashed flat, but that should be expected with the packaging. Turned out lovely. Keeping this one in the favorites and will rent again.

Formal yet fun!
Rented this for Barrister's Ball and it was perfect! I was worried it would be a little short, but the fit was as expected and it was formal while still having a bit of flair. I was sad to return it - would definitely rent again.

Adorable dress, but unfortunately too short for me to wear to a wedding
The 10 fit true to size, however the skirt was really short and barely covered my butt. Otherwise was very cute on, just wish it was a bit longer in the back.

Classy and chic
The only bad part about this dress is the seam between the black top and tulle bottom-- no stretch at all. An 8 wasn't available so I wore the 6 which I have worn in a previous dress from this same designer.

Loved this dress! It's the perfect combo of classy & playful.
I wore this dress to a friend's wedding & it was perfect. It fit true to size. Because of the details on the top & the tulle at the bottom, I made sure to choose bracelets that wouldn't catch on any of the fabric. I received a ton of compliments on the dress & would definitely rent it again.

It fit nice, was comfortable and looked great on. Got lots of compliments on the dress!
The dress runs small. Normally a size 4, but needed the size 6. I am short so the dress fell a little above my knee and was a perfect length for me. The skirt is a bit annoying and needed to be checked and smoothed down when I got up from sitting, but was not a major problem. I danced a lot and ate a lot and was comfortable all night!

Amazing Princess Dress!
This dress was so classy and comfortable. The size 4 fit like a glove, but the 2 was super short and poofy. The only problem was I found two tears in the skirt upon arrival. I contacted RTR, and they got back to me the next morning saying they would overnight me another dress. Since the wedding was that day, I decided to wear it and was assured I would not be charged for the damage. Of course it was hardly noticeable, and I got so many compliments throughout the night. I definitely felt like a princess in this dress and was so impressed with RTR's customer service! Another amazing experience.

The dress is pretty comfortable. I typically wear a size 4, but the 6 allowed for a little extra breathing room. It's a fun dress to dance in.

I wore this to a fun evening wedding!
The dress was fun and something different than I would have normally bought. I loved how it fit, but it definitely runs true to size or a bit small, so get your size and a size up just in case.

Very pretty dress, tulle was an issue
Rented this dress to wear a wedding. I went back to designer Nha Khan after LOVING another dress for a previous wedding. Loved the color, and fit... however I struggled with the tulle bottom ALL night. Maybe it's because I have hourglass hips- the tulle was constantly poofing up and bunching . Overall, The dress is gorgeous, unique and flirty. I wore the size two because the fit in the true waist was more comfortable. I tried the dress with several bras and because I'm bigger in the bust, i ended up wearing a stick on bra to avoid the top feeling to tight. I felt that the slip was a little short in the back. Love this designer but most likely not those style dress in the future.

This dress made my weekend! I loved the skirt & it was a lot of fun to dance in.
The fit was good though I would have liked the skirt to be a little longer. I ordered the 4 but the zipper was sticking on it so I went with the 2.

The fun tulle skirt paired with the flirty black lace bodice made this dress a showstopper.
I received so many compliments on this dress and my husband could not keep his eyes off me! It was comfortable and stylish. The 8 was ok, but was tight in the waist so I went with the size 10 for comfort. This dress is the perfect one to show off your legs! Sophisticated and fun!

gorgeous dress
This was my first RTR dress, and it was overall a great experience. I read all of the reviews to determine my correct size, and the fit was true to size as most reviewers recommended. I also chose the dress because I am "pear" shaped, and it was a "safer" style that usually fits my body type. The lace on the body and the tulle are as gorgeous in person as in the photos. I got a lot of complements on the dress and highly recommend it for a formal event.

Perfect for a School Dance
I wasn't really planning on going to my school's homecoming dance this past September because I had a competition the next day, but I ended up being voted to homecoming court and had to go. Nobody else had anything remotely like the dress and it nicely complemented my sash! I got so many complements and it looked stunning! I ordered a two but the zipper would not zip so I ended up wearing my backup of a four. The tulle skirt also had a habit of bunching up and wrinkling. But otherwise, a very nice dress!

Unique and beautiful dress!
This dress fit like a glove! I usually feel a little awkward when I dress nice but this made me feel confident. The only thing is that it was a little short on me (I'm 5'9" and have this problem with most dresses). The tule and lace go well together. I received many compliments and was sad to give it back.

The dress was perfect for the ball I rented it for. My dress was unique and flirty!
I rented the 6 and the 8, the 6 fit great but the skirt was a little short on me. I ended up wearing the 8 so that I wouldn't worry about the length all night. The tulle is a deeper champagne color than the photo online but that was no problem at all.
