The dress is gorgeous and it very elegant. It does suck you in the tummy area and flares out at the bottom which is great for those with a fuller thigh such as myself. But, also please pay attention to the back make sure that you always fluff it out when you sit down and stand up because the tulle will stick to your bottom.

I was 4 months pregnant when I wore this dress and it was perfect! for one of my best friend's wedding. I ordered both a size 0 and 2 and ended up in the 2. As others have stated, the skirt can get pretty static-y, but I was able to smooth it out with the hairspray in the restroom kit. I didn't have any problems with the lace rubbing under my arms. However, the lace did leave a red mark (for a few days thereafter) around my neck where it comes up high. Not really a problem though and I didn't notice it rubbing that night. Overall, very happy with dress and received TONS of complements throughout the night. xo, "pregnant ballerina"

Felt like a Ballerina!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Formal Affair
So I got a 6 with an 8 as a backup just in case (knowing it would prob be too big but they were out of 4's). Tried both on, length varies widely by size. My 6 was pretty short, and the 8 seemed way too long, plus the lace wasn't sitting nicely. Wore the 6. Fit perfectly, true to size. Looks great with a skinny black belt over it. Honestly this may be the best dress I've ever worn. Great for holiday parties or nicer winter weddings. Do it, rent this dress!

I had sizes of 4 and 6, and oddly enough the 6 was shorter than the 4! I realized that the 6 had a longer torso portion than the 4, but was still shorter. Both fit great but in the end I went with my original 4. The lace was so detailed and the skirt made me feel like a ballerina. I was set apart from everyone at the event because of this unique dress. I received many compliments and it was great to dance in. It was beyond worth it!

I wore this dress to a "Mom Prom" fundraiser for pediatric cancer. In a room full of 300 women, I definitely felt that this dress stood out for all of the right reasons. It has such a fun feel and I received a ton of compliments. The details around the neck and shoulders are absolutely gorgeous. The lining is quite short, but with all of the layers of tulle, you feel completely comfortable... even dancing! I added a very thin black patent leather belt and it really complimented the dress nicely. I wore the size 0; the backup 2 was quite large. Be sure you have a can of static guard because this dress comes out of the package super clingy and completely flat. I hung it up in my house and sprayed each layer the day before and had no problems at the event, but it would be a huge disaster without.

The top/black portion of the dress was really tight, and the bottom/tulle was wrinkled and too long or something. It was a "no go" and I'm glad I had an opportunity to try it on in the Vegas store and find a replacement that was more event and age appropriate and fit better. The quality of the dress itself was very good.

I wore it for Christmas Eve dinner with mine and my boyfriends family and ended with Midnight mass. The dress worked perfectly for all occasions. The only trouble was that it was a little short for family/church. I wore pantyhose to offset that. Also, the tulle blew in the wind so the pantyhose saved me a lot. The sizes run just a little big. Not noticeable.

Cute dress;lots of tulle

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Wedding
Wore this for my rehearsal dinner. There are lots of great reviews for this dress. It was not my favorite, but looks cute. I wore tights because I wore the dress in November and it was a little shorter than I expected. The tulle was extremely aggravating and was so staticky. That could have been partly because I wore tights. I got lots of compliments, and everyone loved the dress! I would have enjoyed wearing it in the summer without tights. The fit was true to size, and was comfortable. It's a great dress to rent, just not for the occasion of rehearsal dinner.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The size 6 fit was a bit small under the arms and the waist had a tendency to ride up. The layers of netting underneath definitely needed a touch-up before wearing. I normally wear a 6 or smaller in all dresses but I think an 8 in this dress would have been best. I did get a lot of compliments and referred several friends to RTR - with positive raves about it. P.S. Love the little goodie bags included in the rentals.

The fit was true to size. It does have slimmer arm openings so a more athletic figure may have to size up due to that. It was very light weight and comfortable but dressy enough for an upscale NYE cocktail party. Wish I could keep it!

Super fun & fancy -- tons of compliments!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Pros: Lace & tulle makes you feel super elegant -- and it's a very lightweight dress too, not stiff at all. Both came in really good condition from RTR, (the 0 looked like a seam was loose/coming undone at the top of the tulle hem but I ended up in the 2 anyway.) I had a lot of fun wearing it to my friend's wedding and was great to wear on the dance floor. Cons: Neckline was quite tight on my collarbones so I had to wear the 2 instead of the 0, which did fit better. The 2 luckily wasn't too large in the waist but since I was helping the bride's family set up before the ceremony, I had to be sure I would be able to move and not feel constricted! If only it had a bit more stretch in the neck and underarm (which seemed like a common issue in many of the reviews I read on here for this dress). Tip: Static Guard the tulle! Gets really unruly when staticy--came from RTR like this and thank god I had some on hand. I like the poof but would've felt a bit funny being that poofy at the wedding if I didn't tame it a bit. A more sleeker look to the tulle was much more appropriate for a wedding. Misc: In case anyone was wondering about the construction of the dress...it's on the thin side, the lace is not stiff and can get a bit floppy at the edges of the neck/arm/back (if wearing a size that's a bit larger, as I had to) and doesn't stick up like the model photo. Under the lace is also a thin silky nude layer with a spaghetti strap--definitely need some padding underneath! (Keep in mind if you think you may experience the tight underarm problem other ladies had with this dress!) Just wanted to note that in case anyone was wondering how that felt! Overall -- really loved it. This is my first rental from RTR and I'll definitely do it again after this experience!

Fits like a glove and hugs all the right curves. It's feminine and sexy. A head turner for sure.

This dress fits like a glove. If you are at all worried about it being too tight then go up a size. It won't affect the look of the dress at all. I felt like a million bucks in this dress. The black lace and champagne tulle are the perfect feminine/sexy combo. I highly suggest giving this dress a try.

I needed a dress for an industry Awards Gala....I co-host the evening presenting the awards, so I wanted something that stood out, but yet didn't make me feel self conscience. This dress was great. I am 5'4 and I was concerned that the dress would be too short (based on the picture), but apparently the model is 6' tall. It was actually a great length and was quite flattering. It made my waist look small and hid my trouble area (tummy). I didn't have an issue with the size of the arm holes and I felt very comfortable in the dress all night! I would definitely recommend this dress!

I read through everyone's reviews and wanted to get an 8 and a 10. The 10s were out of stock so I got a 6. Thankfully, the 8 fit like a glove because the 6 was super short. The 8 wasn't too short and the slip inside really helped. Everyone kept calling me a ballerina and everyone loved the dress! It was great for dancing, the lace is really flattering and tailors the waist. I have wide ribs and, because this zips low in the back, it was an easy fit.

fit true to size, dress is pretty thin so I recommend layering on top of the dress if you plan on wearing it in the winter. it would be perfect for spring or summer events, I also found the skirt to be a little bit short but if you wear one of those skirt shorts underneath or wear leggings with the dress should be no problem. I really enjoyed this dress and did not want to take it off! it's super comfy and fun to wear!

This was my first experience with RTR. I was very happy with the dress and sad to return it. It was playful and comfortable but dressy enough for the formal event I attended. I'm short and busty and don't enjoy falling out of a dress--so the lacy overlay and wide skirt were perfect for keeping things classy. I wore black tights with it.

I'm SO glad I picked this dress. The only negative part about it is that it's VERY clingy/staticy when you receive it, but thank God for the reviews on this site so I knew to purchase Static Guard ahead of time. After using it, everything turned out great! I'm usually a 4 but there is a band in the dress that felt really tight on my lower ribcage so I went with the 6 and felt much more comfortable. I had so many people come up and compliment me on this dress, and it's super fun to dance in! :) This was my first RTR experience and I'll definitely be using it again.

This dress is a true show stopper but comfortable enough to dance the night away. Make sure to get it out of the box and hang it up ASAP. To make sure the tulle laid right I steamed it simply by shutting the door and not running the fan when I took a shower. The fit runs true to size and it's lined so you can wear any undies or bra you want. Would rent again and again!

Overall fit: True to Size

I absolutely loved wearing this unique dress to my company's annual winter formal! At 5'8 I was originally concerned about other reviews which said the dress was short, but I found the length to still be appropriate. However I would highly recommend steaming the tulle beforehand which I thought helped tame the poof and increase the length. My normal size fit perfectly and the dress was a hit - one of the event staff even pulled me aside to say how much her & her team loved the dress! Thanks RTR!
