Awesome dress, looked great!
Both the 10 (my reg size) and 12 fit, but the 10 was very tight and bunched at bit in the middle - so I opted to go with the 12 instead. However, quality of dress was great, and perfect for occasion ...

Roaring 20's Charity event!
This dress is SHORT especially if you have hips - I probably could have worn the 10 (usually an 8 in dresses) but I liked that the 12 was a little looser. Definitely size up on this one! I wore tights with it to make it less short. Great dress for my roaring 20's charity event and my hubby loved it! :)

It's flattering but careful of the feathers, they shed a bit.

Got so many compliments! Dress was comfortable and easy to wear. Very classy looking!
True to size: I ordered a size 2 and a size 0 just in case, but ended up liking the 2 better. It's form fitting but not overbearing. It's the perfect dress for a fall wedding!

Unfortunately being blessed with large hips and a booty this dress did not fit over it.
The top of the dress fit perfectly but if you have hips or a wider bottom beware, this dress did NOT fit. Although it was beautiful and looked like so much fun to wear I couldn't wear it.

LOVE this FABULOUS dress.
I am 5'9" and about 130 lb and rented the size 4. It arrived clean and steamed, which was nice. I rented this for a black tie wedding. It was a little short on me, but because it is black, it worked out really well. Highly recommend!

An excellent fit made for a great Black Swan
Fit was spot-on, plus the fabric is very stretchy so it would accommodate a variety of figures. I wore this for Halloween, but really just wanted to wear a cute dress while being able to say I was technically Black Swan. Would have rocked it for New Year's or something, too.

STYLIST REVIEW
I wore this for Halloween as a flapper! I was worried that it was not going to fit my hips because there isn't much stretch in the dress, but it fit my curves and was only slightly tight in the hip area! I loved that it accentuated my waist. It rode up somewhat when I walked, but it was a very flattering dress overall. I love the feather detail, you just have to be careful as they can fall off easily. The only downside was that the armholes were pretty tight, which was somewhat uncomfortable! I also rented the necklace, the RJ GRAZIANO Dress Me Up Necklace, which was AMAZING!

I had so many compliments on this dress. The Feathers where a perfect flair to a simple black dress
I love love this dress and can't wait to rent again!!! The feathers where a perfect flair for a simple LBD. What I loved is I could wear my own comfortable bra; however, I did wear my short black spanks since the dress is short but comfortably short. I could have gone done a size to a 4 but I wore this dress to a catholic fund raiser so I went with a looser more conservative fit.

Fun Dress!
I did not get to wear this dress, but i did try it on and it was very cute. However if you have bigger hips like i do beware because the material is not stretchy. If you are tall and don't have wider hips this is a WIN WIN!

I absolutely feel in love with this dress!
I got so many complements on this dress! I wore it to a cocktail party and it was perfect. Fun but classy. I am 5'3 and it was on the verge of being to short but it worked out. It ran true to size. I wish I could have kept it and am thinking I will rent again. Loved this dress!

Head Turner!
Absolutely LOVED this dress! It's perfect for weddings, holiday parties, etc. It fit like a dream, but I am really short so it might run short on taller people. I received compliments on this dress all night long! One man, totally unsolicited, came up to me and said "My wife and I have decided that your dress is by FAR the coolest one at this wedding". Definitely recommend renting this dress!

Loved this dress!
This dress fits true to size. It's very form-fitting, so if you have any issues with your tummy area, it won't work! I'm petite, and the 0 was very short, but worked for me because of my height. I definitely recommend it.

my boyfriends reaction to the dress!
I could have worn the 8 but I wanted to be comfortable the whole night and not be fussing with my dress. it was a bit shorter than I usually wear but was still appropriate for the occasion!

Way too big for a petite girl
The dress was beautiful fabric and structure. Uunfortunately it was WAY too big. It hit right above my knees, which would have been fine for my office holiday party but the rest of the dress was super baggy. As a typical size 00/0p - this just wouldn't work on me.

Beautiful dress and I got so many great compliments on it
I thought it ran a little small. It's short too but that's what I liked about it. However, if I was over 5'9" it may not cover much. Loved the dress and I got so many wonderful comments on it!

not sure. I have to go tonight and I don't have a dress, so that might make it unforgettable.
The dress material is not stretchy. And the dress I had ran small. So, a return. :( It's very cute. Is quite short as well and with 1 simple try on, the feather were all over my room.

Really cute and distinctive. Lots of compliments
Very short. I wore black pants under it rather than stockings because I was concerned about the length. There is no stretch to the fabric, which made it feel shorter when moving around. I am 5'8" and the hemline came only to the edge of my palm if I held my hands by my side. Worked great with the pants though.

Perfect party dress
I loved this dress. I thought it was the perfect mix of flirty and fun without being too reveling. I am tall (5'7ish almost 5'8), so keep in mind that the skirt WILL ride up a bit if you're like me. I also have an ample booty, which didn't help. I didn't mind it, though, because the dress was just so fabulous. I went a size up based on fit suggestions, but the 6 (my size at the moment), was perfect. the 8 was still comfortable but too loose and bunchy around my middle. I think sizing up is your best bet.

You rocked this look, girl! As an almost 5'8 lady with a booty, I appreciate your detailed review. :D

Cute dress but too short, small hips, big bust
Cute dress but it didn't fit. The size 4 was too narrow in the hips but big on top for me. If I had rented a size 6, I might have been able to make it work on the top with fashion tape. As it was, I couldn't wear it. Note: it's also pretty short!

Absolutely loved the feathers! Perfect for 20's themed party!
Wore this dress for a friend's Christmas party. I typically wear a size 2, but the dress was tight around the hip area. The back-up 4 was a little bit looser so I decided to wear that one since we were going to be dancing and moving around quite a bit. It did bunch up a little bit around the torso area because it was the looser of the 2 dresses. Loved the feather detail! They did shed a little bit, but nothing extremely noticeable.

I'm usually a size 2 but I ordered the 4 as my extra size just in case. The 2 fit perfectly though. I was able to wear regular bras/underwear with it which was nice.

This dress is a lot of fun!
I rented this dress for a Gatsby themed New Years black tie party. It's super fun and very flattering. I received compliments from strangers all night! A few things to note: This dress runs one to two sizes too small. Definitely choose a size up for a second option. The bodice is 2 layers of very thick, and semi-stretchy material, but the area where the feathers are stitched doesn't give. It's also extremely short. Getting in and out of cars was a challenge. Be prepared to rock a lot of leg! I'd definitely rent this dress again.

Classy LBD with a fun twist!
I rented this dress for my office holiday party and really loved it! The fit was great - I could have gone with the 0 but it was a smidge too tight to be comfortable all night, so the 2 was the better choice for me. It was a great length on my 5'2" frame, and was never in danger of being too short. I received many compliments on it and it was a lot of fun to wear. I would highly recommend this dress and would rent it again for the right occasion!

Fun dress but a little snug!
It was very snug on me and I'm a pretty true size zero. I chose to wear the back up dress because I wouldn't have been able to eat in the dress. I loved the look of it. Side note: the feathers shed.

I could have worn the size 10 but because the dress was a little short I felt more comfortable with the 12 to cover the bum region.

Fun, flirty and true to size/image.
Loved the dress, but wish I couldve ordered a smaller size. Given the holidays, only the size 6 was available. Since it was a work function, I was happy to have the slightly longer length (I also paired the dress with sheet black tights), however, I am smaller chested and going up in size made the dress look much more boxy than I would've liked. Overall, an "ok" first time experience.

Great Gatsby Party
Nice dress. I wore it as a flapper dress. Bottom was tighter than the top. I am usually a size 2, however, had to wear the size 4 because the bottom of the dress was tight around my legs. Feathers shed.

Fun party LBD
I could have gone with the 6 or 8 but ultimately landed on the 8 for a little extra length. This dress was really comfortable to wear and dance in. It bunched up a little but when I would sit down so found myself pulling it down some at times (and accidentally pulling a few feathers out in the process). Overall I would highly recommend this dress.

The dress was perfect. I wore seamed thigh highs...so sexy. My hair was a traditional finger wave.
It runs a little small and there is NO give in the fabric, but very flattering! Some feathers kept falling off the dress...but other than that it was great.

So bummed this didn't work!
I normally wear a size 8 but rented an 8 and a 10. I have a pretty big booty but this dress was riding up so much. Then the worst part is when I pulled it down feathers were EVERYWHERE. The dress its self was beautiful but go up a size OR TWO!

This dress made the ordinary LBD EXTRAordinary.
I'm 5"0, 34B and have a lot petite/athletic build. The dress fit perfectly. I have short legs and the dress length hit mid/upper thigh. This dress would be über short on someone with a very tall frame and long legs. This is my 3rd RTR rental and I have not been disappointed. I relied heavily on reviews of women with similar build & body types. This dress is more than the ordinary LBD. The feather tiers at the bottom added an edgy look to it that everyone was impressed by. I added killer red shoes, chunky necklace to complete the ensemble.

This dress was amazingly flattering! Perfect for a 1920's party.
I'm short (5'2) and this dress was the perfect length. I wasn't sure if a size 0 would be too tight but it ended up fitting like a glove. The dress is very flattering with a thicker fabric and black color. The feathers were a fun touch! Wore it to a Gatsby party and was perfect.

This dress was amazing. Was at a film premeir for a show we did on Snoop Dogg. I felt amazing and got tons of compliments. The dress was flattering. My only complaint was the constant shedding of the feathers.

Dress is beautiful and perfect for a 1920's themed party.
I really wanted a dress that looked more authentic for me and my sisters 1920s themed birthday party. The dress is pretty short and a little form fitting so I went to the 6 even though I usually wear a 2-4 so that the dress can be loser and longer. I got compliments all night long. The only down side is that the feathers shed easily. Outside of that, the dress was perfect for my event.

This dress was perfect for my 1920s themed formal event! Elegant yet fun because of the feathers!
Fits true to size but is fairly short - I am 5'3" and petite so it worked for me but might not for taller ladies. Gorgeous dress overall - high end well made fabric, very comfortable (aside from having to pull down at times b/c short). I normally wear a 0 or 2 and took a 2 in this dress (the 4 was too big in the shoulder/arms/chest area). Like other reviewers said, the feathers/fringe does shed but in little pieces at a time. I wore it with a long string of pearls, pearl/art deco earrings, and black heels. I received many compliments on this dress and would highly recommend for something elegant yet fun!
