This dress had me feeling sexy and confident at my boyfriends formal work event
Loved the dress! Got a ton of compliments at the party. Glad to have had two sizes sent as the ordered 8 was too tight on my back (big bust). Next size fit like a glove.

Great dress!
Loved this dress. Wore this to a formal engagement party. Got compliments all night long and was comfortable to dance in. The only downside was the fabric up top was a little loose and I kept having to pull it up all night so the bra I wore wouldn't show.

Really pretty dress! Loved the color. Only thing was that the bodice would slip down once in a while and show the top of my bra, so I'd have to hike it back up.

Pretty red dress
I wore a 4. I am 5'6 135lbs or more. I just had a baby 12 weeks ago. So I was excited to fit in the 4!! :) It was true to size. I didn 't wear a bra due to open back. Pretty dress. Comfortable to dance in. Another successful RTW!

Danced the night away!
This dress was amazing on. I ended up wearing a different dress because my event was a class reunion, and I felt that this one was a little too flashy. If you want to make a statement, definitely go with this dress. It is hot hot hot. The fit was perfect, but not too tight, and you'd be able to wear a nude colored regular bra if absolutely necessary.

Beautiful dress that truly stood out!
I absolutely loved this dress! The fit was perfect and the gorgeous red color was so festive for the holidays! I had to skip the bra because of the way the dress is cut in the back, so it's something to keep in mind. Otherwise, I received tons of compliments and would rent this dress again for sure! Thanks RTR! :)

GREAT experience! This was my first time using RTR and I loved it!
I received a lot of compliments on this dress! I think it runs true to size. The satin layer under the lace appeared to be a little stretched out, but the dress still looked great. I would rent a similar dress again!

I wore this red dress to my work Christmas Party!!
I took these pictures the day before my party (no makeup)!! :) The dress fit well (I usually wear a 2 or a 4, I wouldn't of been able fit in the 2 at all) , I will say wearing a strapless bra was difficult. I had to have someone pin the strap of my bra to the dress. The lining kept showing in the front at the bottom (you can see in my picture what I am talking about). The dress does look like it has been worn a few times. I think this must be a popular size so the dress has been dry-cleaned a lot. I got MANY compliments throughout the night!!!

Gorgeous!
This dress fit like a glove. The back detailing is wonderful, and the bust is very sexy -- covered up but a bit revealing. I did not wear the dress, however, because there was an issue with the lining, which would not lay flat at the midsection. It may have been dry-cleaned oddly, although it seemed to be an issue with the way the lining was tacked to the three vertical satin strips that run down the front of the dress. I would absolutely rent this dress again (provided the problem was resolved). I think the fit is true to size -- I am athletic but curvy, with a shorter torso, long legs, and a small waist and flat stomach. The 6 fit me perfectly.

It was form fitting, but it was stretchy so that I could move and did not feel restricted.
Loved everything about this dress. It was comfortable to wear for a long evening event.

I loved the color and the back of the dress. It was sexy but conservative enough for a work holiday
The dress was true to size. It is snug but comfortable enough to spend the entire night with it on. It does make a weird folding in the front that makes you look like if you have a small belly. I think this happened because the inside slip might have shrunk a little. Like other reviewers it is comfortable enough to wear braless and not feel exposed. Over all I loved the dress had great comments. A great rental.

I received many compliments on my dress and the open back part made it extra special looking.
The dress is form fitted; however the collar part of the back of the dress was slightly loose for me. This made the open back part of the dress look a little loose if I didnt have perfect posture standing up straight. The dress was perfect length- the dress hit just above the knee.

The dress was beautiful and I got lots of compliments. Great shade of red.
Unfortunately the red lining of the dress hung lower than the red lace by almost 2 inches....wish I had received it early enough to trade it out, but I had to wear it that way.

Beautiful color!
I rented both a size 0 and size 2, and wore the 0, which ended up being a little big in the waist/bust. The fabric felt cheap in comparison to other Monique Lhuillier dresses, but it's beautiful nonetheless and was perfect for the occasion. The hem fell right above my knees, so this is a great dress for taller girls looking for something conservative.

Love love loved this dress! I wore this to a semi-formal wedding and the compliments were non-stop!
This dress fit like a glove- and that's not typical for me. I'm pear shaped and often find things are tight on my hips with too much room up top. Not the case here! This dress really played up my shape without making me feel big. I felt like a showstopper the entire night!

The red lace was beautiful!
This dress is beautiful. I rented the 4 and the 6 for my friend's engagement party. The color between the two dresses was not the same. The 4 was very faded and 6 was a vibrant red. I decided to wear the 6 because of the color and got many compliments all night! The dress was a bit uncomfortable and due to it being too loose on top and riding up on bottom. It photographed beautifully!

Great dress - felt very pretty with the bright red and lace neckline
Wore this for my anniversary dinner. Was comfortable and was asked where I got my dress- she also liked the lace neckline. Liked the color. Only minor things I didn't love was the edge of the lace neckline didn't lie so flat and the ribbon detail under the bodice.

This dress was beautiful! It was super comfortable and I got a lot of compliments.
I am usually either a 4 or a 6, and the 4 did not fit me. There's a (pretty!) gap in the upper back of the dress, so a bra would have shown (even a strapless). I ended up just not wearing a bra, and it was fine.

Loved it
This dress was amazing. The only negative thing I can say about it is that I am not particularly busty and I found that the top part was as bit loose so I had to wear a big bra with it. Other than that, great dress!

Beautiful red dress, but didn't fit in the thighs.
I usually wear a 4 or a 6 in dresses, but it was way too tight in the thighs and butt area, which made the dress bunch up around the waist. I think this would be a lovely dress, but if you are curvy around the thighs beware and order up. I had the 8 as a back-up and even that was bunching around the legs and way too big in the waist. It was the first time a RTR dress didn't fit. The stylists at RTR were outstanding and made sure I had a beautiful back-up dress the next day.

Beautiful red dress! Very elegant
This was a gorgeous dress! It was a bit tight in the chest area so I decided to go up to the 4 . I am a size 2 in most dresses but have a 32DD chest so I have to size up often. Only complaint was the lace would curl under and not stay flat on one sleeve and in the front chest area. I had to keep adjusting it. I should have ironed it..

Beautiful dress! I highly recommend renting it!
I wore this to a semi-formal wedding reception in Philadelphia, and I received so many compliments on the dress! I would recommend this dress to who is looking for an elegant, classic style that no one else will be wearing. The wedding was in May, for reference, but I think it could be a dress worn to year-round events. I'm typically a size 2, but in order for me to fit into this dress, I had to go to a 4. If you're between sizes, I'd recommend sizing up. This was my first RTR purchase, and I have two additional coming up because of how wonderful this dress was! On a side note, to my petite ladies: I am five foot nothing and this dress hit me just at my knee. It was a very appropriate length; it wasn't too long or too short! This might be an issue for a taller woman, though.

This dress was stunning. It was vibrant and comfortable.
The lace on this dress was absolutely beautiful. The bust was a little big, but I have a small chest so that was expected. I really loved this dress.

So many compliments!
Received so many compliments on this dress (I wish it were mine!). Note that the picture makes it seem like you can wear a normal bra with this dress, however, the back is much lower than it appears in the photos! Had to opt for a backless, strapless bra. In between a 4 and a 6 and the 6 worked perfectly!

SEXY AND SOPHISTICATED!
I wore this to a work charity event and it was a huge hit! I received so many compliments. Because it covers your shoulders and the length is to your knees I felt it was acceptable to wear to a work party, but the red lace and form fitting aspects also make it fun and I felt great in the dress!

the color is amazing
i've been eyeing this dress for a while now. and my sister-in-law's wedding was the perfect opportunity. the color is a rich red, even though the picture i attached doesn't do it justice. you can tell that this dress has seen better days, which is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5. the lace showed some wear and tear, as i found snags on the sides of the dress. since there wasn't a replacement available, i ended up wearing it snags and all. hoping they don't show in the professional pics. i ordered the 4 and the 6. the 4 fit great, except the top half was stretched out but manageable. if i blessed up top, it might have fit better. as it was, i needed a backless bra to make it work. (you might want to order one from RTR when you order your rental. pricing here is pretty in line - if not cheaper - than in the stores.) and even then, i had to secure the bra to the dress so that it wouldn't show if the dress shifted. so basically, a lot of problems with the dress and the top area, but i still loved the dress. if i can find it new, i will definitely buy it!

Wore this to a coworker's wedding.
I didn't realize how nice the lace was from the photos. Great fit, conservative yet still sexy cut. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because the bra inserts weren't held on very tightly. I wore a regular strapless bra and pushed it down in the back so it wouldn't show. Would have preferred to go braless.

Love the dress!
I loved the dress. I had originally ordered it in the royal blue color in a size 10. While it fit me in the hips and waist (slightly too large) I could not get the zipper on the back to go up completely. I had to return and ordered the red in a 12. The zipper fit fine, but it was too big in my hips and waist.

Loved the Color and Lace
I got so many compliments on the great red color of this dress. It was so classy for a family wedding with a pearl necklace and earrings. My only complaint is that the size 10 was a very different color red than the size 12. It appears it has been dry cleaned WAY too many times. The size 10 didn't fit well either, probably because of the amount of dry cleaning of the dress. Went a size up and it fit well enough.
