Beautiful bright colour! Runs a bit small but the chestal area was loose due to multiple wears. Lovely dress overall though if you are petite the fit might not be that great.

Eye popping red!
Wore this to my cousins rehearsal dinner. The color was great and I received a lot of compliments on it. I loved the cut out on the back. Rather comfortable dress

Gorgeous red dress!
The dress pretty true to size. You do need to wear a strapless bra due to the lace and open back. I was very happy with this rental.

Received lots of compliments but I didn't love it
I wore this for a cocktail party thrown when my Rodan + Fields team hit Lexus so it was a very special and important night. I just had a baby 3 months ago so I'm self conscious about my tummy and my boobs are huge from breastfeeding. The dress was lovely, but I had really high expectations so it wasn't quite up to par. It showed my "baby bump" and despite the Spanx, I still felt like I looked unattractive. The color is more muted than I hoped - more of a blue red than an orange red. It was tough to find a bra for this dress because of the cut out in the back so I ended up going bra-less. The dress was structured and tight so it worked and looked fine, but you may not be comfortable with going without a bra. The length of the dress was great, and it definitely stood out in photos!

Classy but sexy!
I loved this dress. I received many compliments and felt great in it all night. My only complaint is that it gathered oddly below my waist which you can kind of see in the attached picture. Overall gorgeous dress!

Beautiful Dress! A head turner, for sure!
A classy yet still sexy, perfect true red dress. I received lots of compliments all night long!The back is nicely cutout, a strapless bra is wearable if you don't mind pulling it down half an inch. The hem just hit my knee, which I like...a dress riding up too high when I sit is a big pet peeve! I ordered a size up and it was roomy enough to sit, eat and dance.

Classy and Sassy in Red
I loved the dress, although i didn't realize how form fitting it was when i decided to rent it. It turned out to be perfect, though, because of the length. I felt very sophisticated and classy, yet sassy in this dress. I received so many compliments and would rent it again!

Nice for a date night out on the town!
Fits pretty true to size. Got so many compliments on it!! The only negative would be that the back scoops a little low so had to keep adjusting the strapless bra so it wouldn't peep out.

Great look for a wedding!
I had a couple of issues with this dress (which Customer Service took care of for me). Other than that, this was a beautiful dress which is classy, yet also a a little sexy (but not too crazy for a wedding). I wish that I had worn a sticky bra with it, but it was fine without a bra. Also, I would suggest Spanx (I'm so glad I wore them!). My favorite detail is the open back! I was initially concerned about the slit in the back, but it was modest (at least for my height). Keep in mind that since this is a rental, it is possible that the top of the dress may be stretched out from previous wearers (the issue I had with the dress), so it would have been impossible for me to wear a necklace with this. Instead I wore some really awesome earrings and it popped! It was very comfortable and I had no issues dancing in it.

I got many compliments on this dress. It was perfect for an outdoor wedding.
I am reviewing this a little late, but from what I remember, this dress didn't have as much stretch as some others, It was more structured with the ribbing. Regardless, both sizes that were sent fit me, but I wore the larger of the 2. I got many compliments and it was a great little dress to wear to a wedding. I will definitely rent this one again for a wedding in a different color, as Rent the Runway has this in multiple colors. I do love the red though.

I typically wear a 6 and ordered both a 6 and an 8 for this dress. The 6 didn't fit comfortably so I went with 8. I got so many compliments on this dress and felt great wearing it!

Pretty but does NOT fit "any cup size"
This is a very pretty dress but I had to order 4 sizes in it until I found one that would zip up completely. I'm a 30-32F cup, 39-28-39 measurements, and the size 10 was SNUG. I looked on the ML website for a comparable dress and the sizing chart said my measurements should have been an 8 for waist and hips and 10 for bust, but the 10 was snug overall. It would have been wearable except for the fact that both strapless bras I have showed in this dress. You definitely cannot wear a full coverage strapless bra, at least in a large cup size, with this dress. As the stylist notes mention, this dress does not give, so if you are full busted or have an hourglass figure then size up! I will say though that RTR was great and overnighted me two different packages with multiple sizes of this dress and all of the reps I spoke to were very kind and they offered me a credit because I couldn't wear the dress.

Great dress with back detail, lots of compliments
The dress was a beautiful color and I got lots of compliments all night. It fits true to size and the material has a little give. I went up a size for my backup since I have larger hips and didn't want this to be too tight in that area- I have an hourglass figure and it fit great! You can't wear a bra with this dress but you really don't need to. I NEVER go braless but I did here because the material is thick and gives great coverage ever for larger breasts that need support. I will say that because these dresses have been worn quite a bit they aren't in new condition anymore. On both dresses, the lace especially along the bust and abdomen is pilled, the lining didn't fold quite right under the lace after being worn so many times, and the lacer details at the neck and back were folded in from wear. None of these were a big deal and most likely not noticeable to anyone else. Overall I loved the dress and would definitely rent it again.

The dress sizing is way off.
I got this same style dress in blue for another wedding and it fit great. BUT this dress was way too small. I'm usually a 4 or 6 so I ordered those. I tried the 6 on first and it felt like I was trying on a 2. I could not even zip up the back the whole way. It was really disappointing that it did not work out.

Statement piece that turns heads!
I wore this dress for a rehearsal dinner and was initially concerned about it being too much (I never wear red), but it was perfect! I prefer my clothes to fit a little loose over being a little snug, so I wore the 8 when I typically wear a size 6. I love the color, the lace, and the length of this dress. To me, it says "classy but with a bit of sass," which is exactly what I was going for with this event!

Great dress for wedding! Loved it!
The dress is amazing. I received compliments all night long. Is photographs great too. I'm a little short so the length was past my knees and very straight but still comfortable. It was a little difficult to sit as the dress kept siding up but given how amazing it was I didn't even care. The back is especially nice, no need for a bra and it truly was a perfect dress for the wedding I went to. I also like the little arm sleeves, they weren't tight at all like I thought they'd be and the dress has enough give so you can still enjoy all the wedding food. Def would rent again.

Classy Dress for Family Affair
I wore this dress for a family wedding rehearsal dinner. My husband's brother was getting married, so it was important not to show off too much skin in front of my in laws at the rehearsal dinner. The dress hit me right above the knee. I love how it was modest, not showing any cleavage, but with a sexy back cut out. This dress does not have any give, and it was lined with a satin lining. To flatten things out in the tummy area, I did wear a spankx undergarment, like really tight shorts. I wore a nude color strapless bra. And lastly, I wore nude close toe pumps. This dress was just such a classy look and perfect for the dinner, which was in an upscale restaurant. I felt like Charlotte from Sex in the City. The event also took place in early December, so the red dress was fitting for that time of year.

This dress was perfect! I got compliments all evening about it.
Length was on the longer side, but I felt like it was a good balance since its a lacy dress and bright red. Definitely elegant and sexy at the same time. I was nervous the dress would be too tight so I ordered the next size up (size 4) but it was too big. The 2 fit perfectly. The back neck part laid flat which was a concern for me since I am petite sometimes features like that tend to sag on me. I am so pleased I rented this dress.

Beautiful dress, tons of compliments!
This dress was amazing! It was very comfortable, beautiful and I got a ton of compliments all evening. I ordered the 12 and 14. The 12 was a bit too snug and the 14 was a bit larger than I would normally wear, however it ended up being perfect because it was comfortable to move in and for dancing! Highly recommend!

This dress was perfect. The open back was slightly revealing but perfectly modest at the same time. The fit was slightly body conscious, but still appropriate for my work Christmas party. Did not wear a bra with this dress, no issues there. Perfect for a holiday party, comfy to move around in.

Amazing look!
It looks very classy and very sheek. Stretchy and comfortable material. The only down side is that I don't have a large breast so the top half was a little big after being worn by other people. Other than that it was amazing. Definitely the girl in the red dress that night. I highly recommend this dress to anyone looking for a classy but yet sassy look!

Beautiful color and fabric
I loved this dress there were only two things that made me give me 4 stars instead of 5. One is that the last hook above the back opening detail kept unhooking the whole night. After I took it off I noticed it's because it was either weirdly positioned from fabric or someone tried to fix it and didn't attach it where it was supposed to go. The other thing and can't be appreciated from the picture because I purposely turned around was that the front, right above my thighs, kept bulging. I don't know if that was because of my butt or I needed to order the size 8 but everything else fit like a glove. I received tons of compliments in person and online after I posted the picture. I rented it for a date with my husband to celebrate Valentine's Day . Might rent again.

Loved this dress! Looks exactly as pictured and was a perfect fit!
I would suggest ordering 2 different sizes so if normally wear an 8 I would say to order a 10 as well because depending on body type I think you could go either way depending on your comfort because th dress is very form fitting.

Red really pops!
I've rented this dress before in the blue color so I already knew I'd like it. I ordered it this time in the 8 and the 10 and probably would've been more comfortable in the 10, but that particular dress was a little worse for wear so I wore the 8 instead. It was a little tighter and sexier than I intended, but I got compliments on it and my husband thought I looked hot! Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures of myself in it, but I styled it with a multi-strand pearl necklace and nude wedges.

This was flattering a little uncomfortable, but beautiful!
The fit was flattering with some ribbing that made it a little tight, might have sized up. To be fair it was also the last night of a seven night cruise so that may have contributed too :). Great for a large bust and made me look super skinny, loved it!! Wore it to a special formal dinner on a cruise and it was perfect for the romantic night.

THIS IS THE BEST DRESS
No joke, my absolute favorite rental. Even my fiancé wanted to know if we could buy it. Fits great and comfortable, the color pops and the keyhole back seals the deal. Side note, in photos it looks like it has a corset torso however that is faux boning- it didn't have any real chest support. Definitely could have worn a size smaller, wanted to be in the safe side.

Not very red
I rented this dress but ultimately decided not to wear it as it was a cranberry color and did not seem to hug the right curves for me.
