I went to the Emmys this past weekend and was told repeatedly I was the best dress there.
It's runs small. I am 5'3 and 34A and the size 4 was too small. Luckily RTR was able to have a new size sent to my hotel.

Best Bachelorette Dress Ever!
Got a 0 and a 2. The 2 was a little too big at the bust for me, the 0 was a tight fit but stayed up all night! Wore this dress for my bachelorette party in Vegas. I got about 100 "Congratulations!" and a couple "happy birthdays" Throughout the night. I even had people want to take their picture with me like I was a Disney character! Lots of compliments on the dress. Best compliment though was when my girls and I were walking back to the hotel someone said to us "it's nice to still see some class in Vegas!" Not your average night club dress, but definitely makes a statement when you're the bachelorette! Also, the foot of tulle around you keeps the creepers from trying to dance up on you! Definitely a plus.

Such a fun and flattering dress
I wore this dress to my senior homecoming and I got a ridiculous amount of complements from everyone, even some complete strangers. It was classy and elegant but also very fun. I am in love with this dress and the lace detail on the bodice was a really nice touch. I could not have asked for a better fit!! Perhaps not too flattering if you are too petite as it is supposed to hit the leg right above the knee and all of the toulle could seem to swallow a petite figure. This dress made me feel like a princess. It was just perfect.

Many compliments!
I wore this dress to my engagement party. I received a lot of compliments. I am normally a 6 but it was a little big on me. If you are smaller chested like me I recommend going a size down. It's definitely on the poofier side.

Little to FrooFroo!
I got this dress as my backup at our wedding reception. I ordered a 8 and 12 because the 10 was out during my event. I was able to wear the 8 just fine but it was way too big in the waist and chest area and basically looked like I was trying to be a ballerina. The color was also very dark, pretty champagne color but definitely not an ivory like it looks in the picture.

Runs small...size 2 was very snug on my daughter, she is 5'3 and 116pds, athletic. The bottom of the dress is very full.

Able to Zip, But Could Not Wear.
It was too small for my chest. It squished it so tightly that it started over flowing to the sides. Because of the chest not fitting correctly, it started to scrunch up around the mid-section. This was a gorgeous dress, I'm saddened that I wasn't able to wear it.

Pretty party dress
I rented this dress for a holiday party, but I ended up sending it back without wearing it. The dress was really pretty, but I didn't wear it for two reasons. The first being that we had a snow storm last night and it was way too cold to wear a strapless tulle dress. And the second reason is that I didn't realize the bodice of the dress was crocheted. I thought the bodice was going to be embroidered, but the crochet detail made me feel like the dress was actually less formal than I thought it was going to be. It's a really pretty dress and I'm thinking about renting it again in the spring for my bridal shower, but it just didn't work for me for a holiday party.

TINY through the rib cage
So I ordered a 4 -- the size I usually wear -- and while it closed across my bust and fit great in length etc., it was at least a full size smaller through the rib cage (and I don't have a wide ribcage). So, if you like this adorable dress, make sure you order a size up (and then even two sizes up as backup). The crenalin (spelling?) overlay was cute and not cheap looking, and the lace bodice full and quality. Was definitely disappointed I couldn't wear this.

Received a ton of compliments, so much fun to wear. I wore the black version, as well, a while back.
If you have a decent sized ribcage like myself, it fits pretty tightly around the ribs, however, I am NOT well-endowed breast wise, so a 6 would've been way too large. I used chicken cutlets to give the illusion of having cleavage. I paired it w/ dark gray tights and Betsey Johnson black suede pumps. Highly recommend this dress! The skirt is so fun and poofy.

I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner for my wedding and I loved it!
I felt the dress fit true to size. I typically wear a size 0-2 and I ended up wearing a 2 and it fit perfectly! I am 5'6 and it wasn't too short! The only con to the dress, was I was expecting the dress to be a little more white in coloring. It ended up being a little more off white and had some tan tule in the skirt. It still was beautiful! The dress was also very comfortable! I would highly recommend this dress. I had so many compliments from family and friends as well as complete strangers.

Wrong color
The dress style overall looks very cute and fun on. However the dresses I received both looked like they had seen much better days - appeared to have areas where the tulle had been torn and then mended. Also the color is not as it appears in the pictures. According to the pictures I was expecting an off-white or cream color. The dress is not anywhere close to white or cream. It is a beige/nude color - not what I was expecting and not a flattering color

Renting my wedding dress - best idea ever.
It was such a fun dress and I really liked the color. It was more of an antique ivory with gold undertones. Perfect winter white.

Did not fit.
I am a size 0, I ordered 2 different dresses and this one didn't fit... It was supposed to be my WOW moment for my wedding..an outfit change. But it was away to small. I could not wear it.. I ended up letting my 13 year old niece wear it. She's flat chested and it nearly didn't fit her. So I'm not sure who this size would fit.. None the less we did squeeze her in and she looked beautiful. She loved it & kept dancing around saying she was a fairy princess <3

I wore this for my bachelorette party (obviously). And it was such a hit! Everyone I was with loved it and I got so many compliments from strangers at the bar. It truly made me feel like a princess, and it fit perfectly. Highly recommend!!

Poofy and girly - it was perfect!
I rented this dress for my wedding rehearsal and I loved it. Everyone commented on how perfect it was for my personality. I would caution that I thought I needed an 8 based on other descriptions but a 6 would have been better for me so go for your true size. It is more of a soft pink than the almost white other photos show. I took off one star because it bunched weird at the waist but not enough to make me dislike it. Very pretty and feminine. Enjoy!

This dress is classy and beautiful
I wore it to my Senior Homecoming and I got numerous compliments on how unusual and fun it was. I wore a pair of black high top converse and I was comfortable enough to dance all night! I loved the tulle skirt but the under layers were tight over my hips. Nevertheless, this is my favorite RTR order to date and I would rent this again!

Vegas vow renewal
Cannot imagine a more perfect dress to wear while standing next to Elvis (and my husband, of course). I have a narrow ribcage, so I figured I could wear a smaller size, but this wasn't even close! My normal size fit perfectly, but size up if you have a larger ribcage or chest!

Backup dress. The fit was perfect, but not a great look for me
I wanted a second dress to change into for my wedding reception, and this was a backup dress. It did not look good on me at all! The top made my chest completely flat, was not slimming for my waist, and the skirt was WAY too poofy. Luckily the other dress I rented was perfect!

my own SJP moment!
I wore this for my bday party and it was the biggest HIT! Seriously, strangers were taking pictures with me. The guy in the picture was the lead singer for the band that night! The 4 fit but I usually wear between a 2-4. The top was very low ( I wore my dimmers in case of any nip slips) SO FUN! I wish I had run off to vegas in it!

The dress came in plenty of time and it fit. The rental process went very smoothly.
I wore it to a school dance. The dress fit, but it seemed worn and a bit dingy. The skirt had a snag in it and it seemed worn, not pristine. It's a beautiful dress, but not the color I expected. I'll probably use the service again because it is an overall convenient and affordable process.

Fabulous dress!
I rented this dress for our engagement pictures and just loved it so much! I got lots of compliments from strangers and can't wait to see how the pictures turned out. It's a little tight for a size 2 dress so you might want to consider ordering one size up just in case... Overall, this is a really fabulous, flirty, romantic dress that will make you feel like a princess!!

Princess Dress For the Day
Rented this for a photo shoot for my website relaunch and a Valentine's Day shoot. Loved how fluffy it ended up being! Was a little tight in the bust, but overall turned out great. Was also expecting it to be more white, was more of a dark cream. Wanted the fairy tale look and think it worked!

Really cute dress, but not what I was looking for...
I was looking for a dress for my bridal shower. I ordered this one and another. I wore the other one. This is a really fun dress, but I thought the other was more suited for my event. It's a fun dress if that was you are looking for...

Love love love. I almost cried sending it back!
I had a destination wedding in Redrock National Park and then we went to a club overlooking the Vegas strip after dinner. I wore this t the club and it was AMAZING. It was fun but classy, got me ton of compliments and attention. it was flattering, it was playful but still easy to wear. I seriously didnt want to take it off or send it back. It was the perfect dress for the occasion. I normally wear a 6 but insisted on getting into the four (i had both the 6 and the 4 but never even tried the 6 on). It was tight but it worked well, especially because I am smaller chested. Get this dress!!!!! Oh- it is def a little more beige than the pictures let on. (ikd why the site isnt letting me upload a pic)

Flirty Fairy!
I wore this dress to go out to a drag review for my bachelorette and felt like a million bucks! It’s a little “much” in that it’s a huge tutu surrounding you but for the right occasion (think bachelorette, major milestone birthday etc) I think it’s fantastic. The Joan Rivers impersonator loved it! I wore a size two (I have a smaller bust) and it fit great; the slip kept riding up but I didn’t mind because I had on spanx and it’s pretty opaque with all the tulle layers. I will say this, this dress looks MUCH better than it photographs IMO. In pictures it kind of cuts you off and does this weird bunching thing but it person it looks lovely…a friend of mine who saw me walking from a distance said he thought he saw a fairy walking down the street.

Not this dress
The dress did not fit, despite my having spoken to someone to confirm my measurements would work with the size 6. They didn't have the back up size I would have wanted (which was size 8), so I hoped for the best. Again, both I and a customer service representative thought it would fit based on my measurements. I was very sad when the dress arrived and didn't fit. It was for my bachelorette party, so I was left stranded with no outfit (poor planning). The dress didn't just barely not fit, it didn't fit by about 3 inches (in hindsight, I'd take a size 10). I wear size 4 and 6 dresses all the time, so this dress runs VERY SMALL and as they say, has absolutely no give. Go a size up if you're curvy. BUT it was gorgeous in person, it was my dream bachelorette dress, and I cried when it didn't fit :). Only rent it if they have your size, and best back-up size. Don't push it with this one.

Very princess feeling! Depending on the occasion, this could be perfect!
I wore this for my wedding rehearsal. The only other occasion I may have felt comfortable wearing this to would be my bridal shower. It was a lot more poofy/tutu like than I was expecting from the photo. I am normally a 4 in full skirt dresses but I was in-between a 4 and 6 in this one. I wore the 6 at first but it stretched a lot as I wore it so I changed into the 4 which was a little shorter and the boning did not lay right. Its definitely a princess dress and I rocked it because I was the bride but I would have felt a little ridiculous if it was not an occasion that was all about me (and the groom, of course!)

All the compliments!
It fits small, and for someone with a larger chest, like myself, I would recommend getting a size up. The only thing I was not happy about is that you could see the slip layer underneath the tule in the light.

I wore this to my Chanel/Parisian inspired bridal shower! It is fabulous!! Love this dress!
The dress runs small and has not give to the top half. I have a large chest and it was snug but the dress was overall very comfortable. The boning in the corseted top keeps it in place. I felt like a princess!

I was a ballerina!
The dress was cute and I got a lot of compliments but it was soo puffy! I don't usually like that so it was rather weird for me. Also, the layers kept bunching up so I had to keep fixing it since there were so many layers. The size 8 wasn't available for me but I am usually a 6. I noticed from other people's reviews that it ran small and it does. My boobs were pretty much smushed down haha. It is a very pretty dress though for the cost! Oh, and the one I got was more tan and not white which another review did mention so I don't know if there's a variation between colors.

Dreams of Degas!
This dress is stunning! A few minor fit issues, but I think this was more because I am personally hard to fit. This dress is better on someone less curvy on top. That said, it's stunning! A vision from a Degas painting. I wore this for a photo shoot and had a blast in it-- I felt like a throwback to turn of the century Paris on the stage of an opera house!

Like a dream
This dress is absolutely beautiful! I rented it for my bachelorette party in Vegas and if I were a few years younger I would have totally rocked it but I though for being almost 30 years old the dress was a little to ballerina for my age group. It is such a beautiful dress however and you can't tell in most of the photos but the dress has just the amount of push-up for cute but not too trashy cleavage.

Ballerina Bride!
I rented this dress for my rehearsal dinner and I cannot tell you how hard it was to give it back! The dress was cute enough to please the parents and sexy enough for my husband to love! When I received the dress I put it on and just kept twirling - it's flirty, feminine, and beautiful! I tried both the 6 and the 8 and opted to wear the size 6 for my event. Although it was shorter 8 (I'm 5'10" and wore 3.5 inch wedges), the size 6 - once fully zipped - had a gorgeous bodice that required no bra at all. That being said, I would not recommend this dress for the super busty, as the material is not at all forgiving. The dress is a beautiful off white and tan color - actually darker in person than it photographs - which made it super flattering on my skin tone. I would 100% encourage anybody who needs a little white dress for any occasion to scoop this one up. You will NOT be disappointed :)
