I felt great in a designer I've only dreamed of wearing!
This dress is more orange than red but the color is absolutely beautiful and totally pops with a tan. You absolutely cannot wear a bra with this dress but as long as you use a few pieces of fashion tape and don't have a big chest you will have no issues. This dress is comfortable and fun and I felt super sexy. I wore it to a fraternity formal and it was perfectly appropriate but since it is a little revealing I wouldn't recommend ordering this if you are going to a dinner party or something. If you are not afraid to try something a little daring and don't mind not wearing a bra I totally recommend this dress!

I was quite disappointed in this dress. I love RTR but this dress was not a perfect fit. I was expecting to wear the small but the XS was even a bit big. Also, this is a VERY revealing dress. The back, sides, and front was completely open and the only way to wear it would be to seriously tape it up, which never looks that great. I didn't even end up wearing this to my event because it was inappropriate and just didn't look good. It fits very different in real life than it did on the model.

Only for the Daring
While the dress is very pretty and is true to size, little did I realize from the photos that it is completely open under the arms! You cannot wear a bra with this...be forewarned! This would be great for clubbing, but just did not work for the dinner event I was going to attend.

You can wear a bra, it just has to be a really nice one! I wore a nude lacy La Perla with this dress last weekend and got tons of compliments on how smart it looked. It's just a bra...there ain't no shame in showing it off!

The note about the dress being open under the arms is very helpful! Now that you point that out, I can tell by looking very closely at the side view of the dress.
