The dress was so chic, but effortless. It was exactly what I was looking for in this party dress!
Fit true to size, but slightly more relaxed. A bitt snug on the thighs, as mine are bigger, but manageable. Wear boy shorts underneath! When you raise your arms, the dress moves up with you.

Fun and easy !
I wore this dress to a wedding ceremony. It's fun but runs large. It was super loose but definitely cute. The wedding was in South Beach so had to change into something fancier for the reception. It's super cute but I wouldn't rent it again.

Funky feather dress
A fun funky feather dress. The fit is a bit odd, top is very boxy and then there is a tight line above the feathers. The feathers she's everywhere but I still enjoyed wearing it

I wore this dress to a fundraiser event.
I wanted something simple and unique, so this dress was perfect! The mesh and paneling are difficult to see in the photos, but are really flattering in person. I'm usually a 4-6; however after reading the other reviews I knew I needed to size up. The 8 was unavailable, so I opted for the 10. It was super roomy in the body of the dress, but it was still a little snug around my hips!

Beautiful dress, fit great!
I loved this dress! I received lots of compliments all night! Like others said feathers fall off but you just leave a little trail where you go:)

Great, sassy cocktail dress.
This dress is unique and fun for a party. It's pretty short if you like to show off your legs. Runs a little large, I should have had the smaller size but it wasn't available. Perfect little LBD rental - fun to wear once or twice when you are in a sassy mood!

Got so many compliments on how unique and different this dress was at my sorority formal!
Loved this dress!! I ordered a 0 and a 2, just in case, and ended up wearing the 2. I couldn't even get the 0 over my butt. I'm normally a 0, sometimes a 2. The 2 fit perfectly! Only problem I had was sitting down. It rose up pretty high when I was sitting. Other than that, absolutely loved it. Feathers shed a little, but I really didn't even notice.

I loved the feathery skirt and high-low vibe of this dress.
I loved this dress. It is edgy and sexy. I wore it to the ballet and then to cocktails and dinner afterward. The top fit true to size. However, as others have mentioned, the skirt is really tight, so I felt like I was pulling it down all night. Then, because I was tugging on the skirt so much, feathers were molting everywhere. I would not recommend this dress to tall girls--I'm 5' and felt like it was a bit short even on me.

Fun, Flirty, and Feathers
This dress is a fun LBD for when you want to play it safe, but also have fun. The fabric details do not show up in photos, but looks great in-person. Fits snug around the hips and is short, so sitting down can be a little tricky. Would recommend renting your normal size and then one up, just in case. Overall loved this dress and very happy with it for a wedding or cocktail party.

Edgy yet Sweet, and Flattering
At first, I was skeptical about requesting a size 2. I wanted to request a 4, because that is what normally fits me, but it wasn't available so I just hoped the size 2 would fit. It turned out it fit perfectly! The dress is more fitted at the hips and loose around the bodice. The length was perfect and just what I wanted for the party. Not too short so I can dance the night away, but short enough to show some skin. Everyone at the party complimented the dress. The dress does shed A LOT, but I didn't find it bothersome. What I love about this dress are the contrasting fabrics and style lines - looks edgy and chic.

Everyone LOVED my dress. They were all asking where I got it from and I felt very good in it :)
I tried on the 2 (I am 5 feet, 105 lbs) and it was uncomfortably tight on the skirt meets shirt part and it just didn't look good and nor was it comfortable. The 4 was a little large on my belly area but was very comfortable and the skirt meets shirt area was just right on my hips! Be aware that the frilly bottoms fall off sometimes. Don't pull on it!

Boxy, big and too much fabric. Not a keeper!
This dress was shipped to me by Rent the Runway b/c my second size in my first choice was unwearable. It came in a size larger than I usually wear but tried it on anyway. I was swimming in it, which makes me believe it runs very large. The dress was very boxy, doesn't hug your curves at all. Also a bit long for someone short. All in all, I would not recommend this dress!

This dress is definitely perfect for a cocktail party
loves this dress! slightly shorter than I expected, but the sleeves on top balanced out the look. tighter through the hip area, so go a size up for your back-up size.

Awesome dress, so much fun to wear! The 2 fit perfectly. Leaves a trail of feathers everywhere you go, very Black Swan!

Feathers & Compliments everywhere
Amazing dress. So many compliments. Fits true to size, but more on the shorter side. So if you're debating between sizes because it's a shift I wouldn't size down. The one downfall is feathers end up EVERYWHERE. It's beautiful but very messy.

Super cute, feathers made it fun.
Extra fabric around the stomach area was weird.

I love that it looks like a top and skirt combo ;)
My bust is small so there was a bit of extra fabric around the stomach area. I also wish there was extra room around the hips.

The feathers were so much fun for a wedding!
I am tall, 5'8 so this dress fit great. I have a bit of a tummy, so was worried about it being form fitting, but it wasn't. Left plenty of room to eat a big dinner at the wedding :) Truly, a perfect dress to rent because it is so distinctive that you couldn't wear it very often or everyone would say "oh there is the dress with feathers" :)

Snug
I love this dress in the picture, but it was a bit too snug around my hips. I did not end up wearing this dress but would look great on a slimmer figure! Also - even just trying it on the feathers were starting to shed. Better luck next time!

Too small on the bottom.
I really wanted to love this dress but when I tried it on it was way too small on the bottom. It fit fine on top but it looked horrible around my butt. The feathers were flying off everywhere too. Extremely disappointed especially for the price.

Not able to wear this dress...
This dress was beautiful!!!!! I wish I didn't have hips so I could have worn it. It is definitely made for woman who are tall with a straight body. The feathers sit below the hips. The dress is well made and a heavy material. Super sad but not for my body type.
