It was a great wedding!
It fits well, and I got a lot of compliments. I will warn that the boning in the bodice can dig into your skin and be a bit painful at times.

Gorgeous dress just very tight up top!
This dress is gorgeous in person. The patterned tulle is stunning. I usually wear an 8, so I ordered an 8 and a backup 10. But both felt like they were the same size and neither would quite zip up the back! I ended up returning both and getting an emergency backup dress shipped. It's beautiful and would have been perfect for my black tie holiday party if it had fit. If you are bigger up top (I'm a 34DD), consider ordering up or getting another dress.

Great dress - strange sizing
Wore this to a black-tie fundraising event. I usually wear a 0-2 -so, I ordered up as advised by other reviews. The 2 was very small and I could barely get it fully zipped without a bra. The 4 I had as a backup was a little too large, especially in the bust. I got past it and wore a push up bra and was overall happy with the final look. It was definitely a very cute dress and comfortable to wear. Also, past reviewers noted this was good for a petite frame, however, I felt the way the straps fit was a little too roomy for my 5'0 frame.

Stylist Review
Unique, alternative print! Running true to size, I did wear my normal size 4. However I would recommend sizing down if you have a smaller bust, as it was quite loose on me up top. The fuller skirt makes this a very comfortable choice for a curvier woman. We would recommend wearing a strapless bra, as the straps of the dress are a sheer material. At 5'8" this dress was almost knee length for me. Pair with a cute pair of heels and simple accessories!

Show stopper dress! So many compliments!
When I initially put the dress on I wasn't sure about how I felt. It was a little bit poofy around the bottom due to the tulle and I thought it might take away from my actual shape. Five minutes in the dress though and I realized it moved great with me as I walked and also kept its shape the whole night through dancing and mingling. I received so many compliments from friends and people that I didn't know telling me it was one of their favorite dresses at the wedding! I felt like a princess and ended up loving it!!! Usually I'm a 4 but I'm glad I sized up to the 6. Wore a strapless bra underneath and it came to about 2 inches above my knee. Gorgeous dress and I can't wait to rent again!

The dress was a perfect fit!
It had a corset-like bodice so it showed off my waist and helped keep my strapless bra up. The straps were also the perfect length and didn't fall off or felt too tight under my armpits. The length of the dress is quite long for my height. It ended right on my knees and I wish it was a bit shorter.

I used this for a friends wedding where guests had to wear short dresses.
PROS: I am 5'10" and always worry about dresses being too short, this was a good length; it landed right above my knees. The print is lovely and I got a ton of compliments. CONS: This dress definitely runs small. I normally wear a size 6, but had to wear the size 8 and it still felt a tad tight. I would recommend anyone to get a size higher than your normal, and for the extra size order two sizes up just in case. The mesh fabric on the top kept scratching my skin, I ended up with a big rash, and every time I moved I would feel it scratching my chest and shoulders.

Beautiful, unique dress!
This dress was perfect for a semi formal rehearsal dinner. It was fun and different without being flashy. The fabric is thick and luxurious, and it definitely feels and looks like an expensive dress. The only thing I did not like was that the boning felt quite tight to the point of pinching as the night went on. Besides that though, I loved the dress and would rent it again.

Flirty and fun!
This was my first RTR experience. The dress fit like a glove, it was fun and feminine and I got tons of compliments not just from friends at the wedding but also complete strangers walking down the street! It is sexy without being over the top, especially if you have a full bust and little waist. My only negative is that the boning/stays in the bodice of the particular dress I received had sharp ends sticking through the fabric right into my waist-- I remedied this temporarily by applying silicone strips to the skin where I was getting stuck. It worked for the night but I would hope that was a fluke and no one else gets poked by their dress!! I sadly did not get a full body pic that night.. We were having too much fun to remember to take pictures :)

Loved this, lots of compliments
Bodice, boning, very hard to wear for long periods if you're planning on eating. This is a white wine and salad kind of dress (and I'm not that kind of woman). That said, got tons of compliments and really enjoyed wearing it. I definitely recommend!

First Time Experience with RTR- I will be back!
Great, efficient experience that I highly recommend. I gave the dress 4 stars only because it really was a bit of a departure from my usual style. My first choice dress wasn't available so I went with my second. Received a TON of compliments at the wedding and sent everyone your way! The dress did run a bit small thru the rib cage as others have mentioned and the stays did start poking a bit by the end of the evening as well. Otherwise it was a fun dress to dance in with the skirt flowing around and something that forced me out of my normal box. This was perfect for both the summer outdoor wedding ceremony as well as the more formal reception indoor afterward.

Very comfortable for a fancy dress + perfect for a work event or wedding
I rented this dress for a dinner gala at the Waldorf Astoria for my work. The dress style perfectly toed the line between fancy yet work appropriate. It's not necessarily the sexiest thing I've ever zipped up, but this was key for my event. I wore size 6 which fit my waist and bust perfectly (no bra, no problem baby) and really appreciated the flow of the bottom half (the dress allowed me to gorge on appetizers and not hug my stomach too much) I recommend this dress if you plan to eat/drink heavily at your event and want a forgiving stomach area + want a little flounce on the dance floor. Lots of love for this dress :)

I wore this to a friends wedding.
I ended up using the size larger that i got and it just barley fit! Its very tight in the chest area and im do not have a big bust (36B). I loved the way this looked on and other than the chest area the rest of the dress was very comfy!

If you love tulle!
Fit runs small. I'm typically a 10 but should have sized up to a 12 in this one. I couldn't zip it all the way. This is a nice dress but a little heavy with the different layers for the heat wave we were having on the east coast this August. I might try this again for an event in the fall in a larger size.

Adorable dress that I ordered as a safe back-up - way too small unfortunately :(
Fit and flare dresses are my fall-back plan as they usually fit. I ordered this as my safety for my sister's rehearsal dinner. My waist and above are pretty small, so I figured a size 2 would work fine or be slightly loose/comfortable. This runs quite small though - I couldn't even zip the garment all the way or do the clasp! I was so sad, as I really wanted to wear the dress. Ended up wearing a Clover Canyon sheath though, which was a hit. Also, just a comment: the skirt was much fuller than I expected due to the tulle. Definitely order at least a size up!

Pretty dress with some unique details!
This dress was sent to me when my original order didn't fit. This dress was probably even better than the one I originally rented! It was perfect for a late summer wedding, but could really be worn in any season. It fit perfectly through the waist and hips, and wasn't too long on my 4'11 frame. The only slight issue was that the straps were too long-but it was a very easy fix with safety pins. Overall, loved this dress and would rent it again!

Gorgeous dress-make sure to get back up one size up!
So unique, feminine, and luxurious looking. I wished I listen to the comments about running small because the top is corseted and very unforgiving. It was pretty uncomfortable to wear-but I'm sure would have been perfect if I got one size up. The cut of the top is so pretty and the fabric is beautiful. Perfect for a city wedding.

Fit was perfect; I found it to be TTS. The top is very structured so it holds you in. Straps are a teeny bit scratchy but it's nothing you can't handle. Rent it!

I rented the 4 and the 6, but the 6 was way too big and the 4 fit perfectly! I wore this to my senior year homecoming, and I got so many compliments! I definitely will be renting from here again.

Cute comfy and complimentary!
I had originally rented another dress but the 2nd size came back damaged so RTR chose this one for me. I loved both dresses and had a hard time choosing but ended up going with this one after taking an informal vote. The tipping factor was other than a strapless bra I didn't have to wear Spanx or any other special underwear! It was comfortable because of that factor. The swishy skirt was a blast to dance in. Definitely get a size up, I normally wear a 10 and the 12 was form fitting. My only complaint was that the sweetheart neckline was cut a little too low and my bra kept peeking out. I normally don't complain about low cut but I didn't want to have to keep fidgeting with it all night. Otherwise got tons of compliments and had a great time!

Great party dress!
This was my backup and I didn't end up wearing it for a few reasons. One, it wasn't comfortable to wear. I have a long torso and this just didn't fit me right. If I had sized up, it would've been too big. Just wasn't for me.

Unique flattering dress!
This dress is very beautiful! Arrived new with tags. The gray tulle overlay gives the black & white dress underneath a soft appearance. I am small chested a was able to wear a push-up strapless bra no problem. Lots of cleavage but with the tulle overlay it made it a bit more modest. The fit around the rib cage was a little tight but wouldn't have been a problem if I had gone braless. The skirt flares out while twirling - great dancing dress! The tulle straps were comfortable. Lots of compliments on this dress!

PRETTY BUT SMALL
I am SO sad right now. SO SAD. This dress just arrived and I was excited to try it on. But it didn't fit! I never thought my torso was long but I guess it is??? The waistline of this dress hits about an inch above my belly button and the pretty mesh straps that cross over the front are too short for my shoulder to waist area so it tugs at the waistline of the dress and makes it flip upwards. It also runs SMALL. Tight in the bust area so size up!

Picked out for a wedding, but no chance of wearing it!
This dress fits VERY small--I'd say it may be 2 sizes smaller. I could get it over my hips, but no chance of zipping it up. Fabric has no give and was very itchy. Also falls very strange on the chest, the arms are too far towards the neck. May fit better on someone with less curves.

Beautiful but tiny!
I loved this dress as soon as I saw it! The tulle is beautiful and fun, but the bust/torso of the dress was SO TINY! I ordered my usual size and 1 size up just in case, but neither could zip past my rib cage. I was so bummed that I couldn't wear it, but definitely recommend this (just size up a little!).

Stylist Review
I am absolutely in love with this dress and the tulle detailing of this dress. The tulle itself actually has a print on it, which makes it very unique. This dress is a great option for a cocktail or formal venue. Also something to note when renting this dress is that it does run slightly on the smaller size so I recommend sizing up for a back up.

Beautiful, but not for full busts!
This dress was gorgeous, but neither size that I ordered fit, so sadly I couldn't wear it. I don't think ordering up would've helped -- the cups are just a little small.

Classy, sexy, and comfortable.
I had to wear a 6 (I usually wear a 4) to accommodate my bust (currently breastfeeding), so it was a little big in the waist, but ran true to size. The shoulder straps dug in and left red marks, but it wasn't enough to stop me from enjoying my night. I got many compliments and I felt very sexy wearing it!

Beautiful dress but didn't fit right
I usually love Parker dresses, but this one just fit me a bit weird and made me look a bit bigger in the hips than I am. (maybe it was the pouf?) I didn't end up wearing it and sent it back.

Beautiful unique dress with tons of compliments!
Generally with dresses that don't have fitted skirts I'm a 2, but I got the 4 as a backup and it was a tiny bit snug but not uncomfortable, I didn't need a bra and it was great! So I would definitely recommend going one size up from your normal size! Also this dress was super unique and beautiful and I think I might have been the first to wear it! So many compliments all night long AND when I posted a picture the next day on Facebook! So it photographs well too! This was one of my favorite rentals even though I was nervous about the other reviews saying it ran small!

A very classy dress.
Dress was awesome and super flattering. Runs true to size - definitely doesn't run small because of the boning on top which makes its very tight. No bra necessary for smaller cup sizes. Very fluffy and fun on bottom! Received lots of compliments!
