I bought two dresses for one event because I wasn't sure if they would fit right. Both dresses were stunning and I had a hard time choosing which one to wear! I had to make a few minor adjustments with the sewing machine to get the right fit in the bust, but that was to be expected and only took me a few minutes. They were lined, and very well made, I chose the blue flapper dress with iridescent bead work and got many compliments on during the event. Several ladies asked me where I purchased the dress and I was happy to recommend Retro Stage! I will definitely buy from Retro Stage again! You guys ROCK!
I’m so excited to wear this dress for the 2020 New Year’s Party! It’s so beautiful, all the intricate beading and detail. It’s even better than I expected. Came in plenty of time, true to size. I will definitely be ordering more.
It fit like a glove
Wore this to a military banquet. It fit like a glove. Had enough stretch in the material that I could let loose and dance, (and eat!) The material is a sheer fabric, but there are enough layers that it won't turn you into an exhibitionist. I do wish the skirt lining went to the floor as well. You can definitely see the under skirt through the outer layer. Would also make a nice costume for a Gatsby-style party with the dropped waist.
I was worried about sizing but it fits perfectly, it's much nicer in real life! X

The photos of me in this gown were spectacular - it flatters a woman.
This was the one that I wore to my Gala. Absolutely Fab! Comfortable, elegant, flowy, easy to move up and down at dinner and cross a stage in. Everything was covered - but in such a way as to make me feel glamourous as heck. It photographs beautifully too - just make sure you've tugged your inner skirt/lining down when you put it on and it will stay there. Didn't have to pluck or pick at anything all night. Didn't lose sequins either.
Gorgeous dress!!! I bought this for a Rodeo Gala and it was perfect. Fit my curves just right. I usually wear a 12/14 and went up a size which was a perfect fit. Very comfortable, no fuss or fidgeting all night.
Runs small & bottom is very sheer cheap material. Sequin top is beautiful.
This is really a very nice dress but is runs very tight in the arm holes (it cuts in to your underarm), even when you order 1 size larger. The most important thing to note is the sequin portion is really a great quality, but the flowy bottom is cheesy & extremely sheer. The bottom undelayment really is much too sheer and hits a few inches above mid thigh. So this is really more of a mini dress with a floor skimming sheer veil like overlay. So the bottom portion of this dress doesn't come off looking anything like pictured. I ordered this in several colors and I'd review them all the same way
This dress was gorgeous on me! Imagine my huge disappointment when I noticed that there were some holes in the gauze part. I immediately went online to return and order another one, but they didn't have any more silver ones available. I tried the bronze color, but it didn't look good on me, so I returned it as well. I had to go with a different dress completely, but I wouldn't hesitate to buy this dress in the future if the silver becomes available. I was issued my refunds promptly.
Great Dress, Great Price!
This dress was fabulous! I wore this for a black tie fundraiser and it was perfect! It has just the right amount of sparkle, without looking over done, very classy. I typically wear a size 10 in dresses, but I read many reviews that stated this runs a bit big. I ordered the 10/12 and the 12/14just to be on the safe side, and the 10/12 fit perfectly. I'm 5'2" and about 130lb. It is quite long, and needed to be hemmed up. I'm not sure why, but some of the other reviews state that the bottom mesh part is see through, and mine was not, mine looks exactly like the picture. A great dress at a great price!
I'm a size 16 and this fit like a glove I absolutely love it
I'm a size 16 and this fit like a glove I absolutely love it! It's for my Gatsby themed birthday party on the 24th.
This is an absolutely beautiful and flattering dress, and you can't beat the pricetag for what you're getting. I am 5'3", 180lbs and bought the XL (size 14/16) and it fit well, a little more form fitting on me than what some of the other user photos look like, but still easy to put on and flattering in the right places.
The dress itself is beautiful, as pictured
I am 5'7" and 130 lbs, I ordered the small and it is a little loose. The dress itself is beautiful, as pictured. Can't wait to wear it to the 1920's snowball next month!
Dress was gorgeous! For a large however, it was not "large". I normally wear a medium and this dress fit "just right" with no extra room. It is well made though and I received a lot of compliments!

Beautiful 1920s dress
I loved this dress! It is very high quality for the price. The beading and sequins were perfect. The fringe sways when you dance. It fit exactly as expected. Overall a beautiful dress. I wore this to a 1920s themed murder mystery party. But it is definitely something Im looking to wear again.
decide to get another one
This dress is amazing!!!! I was weary on buying it because it's cheap and I didnt want more China crap. But it does not disappoint. So beautiful and everything I wanted out of it. It's a bit too big thought but I'm very small so I can't complain much cause everything's too big in me. But seriously, it looks stunning and is not made out of cheap material at all. Completely beaded all the way through. 10/10. Shipping took forever tho
just buy it
i ordered this dress in a medium i am normally a size 14 the dress was far too tight i strugled to get it on also it was far too short couldnt wear out such a pity because it is a lovely dress
For this price, I am amazed at how gorgeous the dress is... It looks even better in person! I am 5'6" and 137 lbs and I went with the medium. I was unsure as I have wide hips but it ended up being just right and wasn't too tight!
Loved the dress! Im 52, 145 lbs. Ordered a Medium and it fit great!! The lining was a little shorter than Im used to but the long black fringe covered well.
This dress is awesome! Great quality, fits as expected. NOT a costume. We bought this for my step daughters 20's themed banquet for school, she loved it so much she is wearing it for a wedding.
Gorgeous Dress and fit perfect!
Stunning! This dress is a showstopper and really beautiful for a great price. I am 5'4" 130lbs and got a small and it fit perfect. The quality is lovely, especially for such a reasonable price. I wore this to a party and got so many compliments!
My wife looked great in this for a 1920's themed party
Very nice elegant dress for an affordable cost.
This dress was gorgeous. I was going to return it but my husband gassed me up and loved it, so I kept it for a gala. The Im a 12/14, I order following the guidelines I want to say an XL. The dress fit great but I wouldve ordered a size up. Only because I have a bigger bottom and thighs so when I first put on the dress it stretches and I know some of the material was coming off towards the bottom. It was a little tight on my abdomen but overall very affordable and great dress. I only spent $50
I'd love to give this beautiful dress 5 stars since it ...
I ordered two of these dresses, one in green size 10/12 and one in blue size 6/8 since so many reviews say it runs large. This dress definitely runs LARGE. I'd love to give this beautiful dress 5 stars since it is feels well-made and is quite flattering on a curvy figure, but I docked it a star for a few reasons. For reference, I'm 5'8" 200lbs and my measurements are 40-34-44.Green size 10/12 - this seems to fit more like a standard US size 14 in my experience. It easily slid over my head without having to touch the zipper (which is probably a good thing as the zipper seems a bit flimsy) and there is extra material that bunches up at the sides and in the back unless I keep pulling it down to smooth it out. The green color is gorgeous though, and my pictures don't really do it justice. The length is good for me, it falls just past my ankles in bare feet. With heels it might feel a bit short, but fortunately I don't like to wear heels.Blue size 6/8 - this seems to fit like a standard US size 10. I also didn't need to use the zipper to pull this over my head. The fit is much better for me, although I was very disappointed with the color. I thought I'd accidentally received a black dress when I first opened it, but it is in fact a very dark navy blue. The pictures on online had me expecting a more vibrant blue for some reason. The length is about a half inch shorter than the 10/12 size.All in all it's still a beautiful dress, and I'm a bit torn on which one to return. I may keep both! No discount or freebies received here, I pay full price for my stuff. Hope this was helpful!
Great value, beautiful details, felt glamorous
Beautiful dress, has a bit of stretch. Looks like it's very expensive. So awesome, got LOTS of compliments. Wore it to a red carpet type event for a business awards meeting. Purchased at the last minute and it showed up on time and very quickly! Got the burgandy and black combo. Very comfortable. The bottom is very sheer, but there is an extra shell underneath about knee length so I didn't feel that it was necessary to wear a long slip.I'm 5'7 about 185. Normally wear 18 or 16. I bought the XL.
