This is a well made, comfortable, beautiful dress. I received countless compliments when I wore it.
The fit of this dress is extremely flattering. I do not like wearing super short dresses because I am self conscious about my legs but this was just the right length. The color is very pretty and very complimentary of many different skin tones.

A elegant, vibrant red dress!
It is form fitting, on the longer side. Ideal for tall, leaner body types. The back detail is gorgeous. The only con - would be the hooks can come undone with significant dancing! I got so many compliments!

I felt classy and put together!
I was worried about how the dress would fit over my hips since it's a shift dress, but overall it fit really well. I received many compliments at the wedding, and I loved the peep hole in the back. My only complaint was that it sat a little weird on my hips but was large on top, but it wasn't too big of a problem. I think some of it has to do with my pear shape :). Would rent again!

Beautiful color and fit!
I wore this to a friend's wedding and I loved it! I got so many compliments about the color, quality, and the fit. The back is also so beautiful. I felt great wearing it. I had a couple friends ask me to send them the link to this dress so they could wear it to upcoming events!

This looked beautiful on you! I noticed that we have very similar measurements. Would you mind telling me how long it was? It looks knee length on other taller reviewers. Thanks!

Perfect fit! Husband wants me to buy it!
I seriously wish I could buy this dress, but it looks like it's no longer being sold. It looked amazing and was so easy to wear - not as easy to put on. I had to find someone to help zip/hook because my husband was in the wedding and not around when I was getting dress...but other than that - love love love love.

I got so many compliments on this dress and everyone wanted to know where I got it.
The fit was perfect and although it would have been easier to wear without a bra, I felt more comfortable with one on and was able to hide it even with the high open back. LOVED it

I am absolutely in love with this PERFECT dress!!!
This dress was amazing. I didn't wear a bra because the dress is actually quite supportive. I received compliments all night long and probably got at least 4 more girls on RTR. The red is not really red, it is more pink than red which I found really unique and beautiful. PEople posted that the dress is not stretchy at all and I disagree. There was a lot more give than I thought there would be and I probably could've worn the size 12 if I wasn't going to such a classy affair. Do yourself a favor and rent this dress. Best wardrobe decision I've ever made by far

How did the back look and feel? I am thinking of renting this dress. I normally wear a 14, most people seem to be sizing up which scared me since there is no 16. One person even commented back cleavage What are your thoughts? Thank you

I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner and got compliments all night. The cut is perfect for petite women and the length is more conservative for a fancier occasion. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

too much stomach
the dress was beautiful, but the dress fit very awkwardly on my stomach. I also had a hard time with how it fit on my chest. I'm a 36DDD and finding a bra that fit with the dress was pretty much impossible. unfortunately it would require way to many undergarments to make the dress fit properly and comfortably. i was unable to wear the dress.

Absolutely loved this dress!
When I first tried it on it seemed a little tight but it actually fit just right and I could move around just fine. This was my 'back-up' dress and I'm glad I chose this one! The back is completely open so I had to use a sticky bra. I go to lots of social gatherings and this was the first time complete strangers came up to me and asked where I bought my dress. I was happy to tell everyone that I rented it! They were shocked!! This was a great experience and I will definitely rent something again! Thank you!

Amazing dress -- fit perfectly!
I ordered this dress for a Valentine's Day benefit that a friend of mine was having. I was a litle worried when I couldn't order a backup size, but it ended up fitting like a glove! I wore Spanx (thank God those were invented) and a backless bra underneath, and it turned out great! I highly recommend it!

I felt super special in this dress!
Adorable dress -- the blue was out, so I got the red and I was happy about it. I am a curvy girl and inherited big arms, so the stop was a bit snug at first. Also, if you're getting this, but sure you have someone to zip-up and pin the back! I wore spanx and 4 inch heels and it fit perfectly. Definitely worth the spanx if you have a belly button that you see in other dresses (mine is visible) b/c it shows in this dress just a bit!

Lovely!
As you can see by the picture, I was not the only one to rent this particular dress - what were the odds of both of us renting the same dress for the same event?!?! Anyway, the picture does not do justice to the color of the dress, it's definitely a more vibrant reddish-deep pink color. I loved it! My typical dress size is usually somewhere between an 8 and 6 but based on previous reviews, I rented up a size by ordering both a size 8 and 10. The 10 was big in the hips so I went with the 8. I also used sticky cups for a bra. I'd definitely rent this dress again, I thought we both looked fabulous. I also rented Nicole miller earrings - they looked fabulous with this dress.

Not for big breasts
Really wanted to like this dress, but I didn't feel comfortable with how tight it was on my chest. It was a nice color and the right length, but I think the run a little small. I could barely breathe in the 2.

Pretty lace dress with open back
This dress could be worn without a bra, or with a stick-on Nubra. Strapless bra will show in the open back. Also, beware "back cleavage" if you have extra flesh on your back. I didn't wear the dress, as I found it not very flattering. It's nicely made, the boning around the waist and reaching up right under the bust makes it possible to wear without a bra, if you're not too busty. It's definitely a pinky/blue red. Not a warm red.

Graceful, colorful lace!
When I tried this dress on in the Vegas store, the size 8 was perfect but when I got the dress it was a little tighter of a fit. My guess is the floor model was a bit stretched out. Even still the dress was comfortable all might long through hours of dancing. The color definitely stood out at the wedding and the lace was right on trend. I would recommend wearing spanx and a low back bra with this dress as even a regular strapless would peak through when I sat down. All in all it was a fabulous dress I would rent again and would certainly love to own! I wish I had taken more pictures in it

Perfect fit! Received compliment after compliment!
This dress was perfect for a black tie wedding. It hit right below the knee, but had the back cut out and lace detail that kept it from being too conservative. The color is beautiful! It borders red and hot pink. I still have people ask me where I got it a month after the event!

Tons of complements!
Please note, you cannot wear this with a regular bra because of the open back, so plan accordingly. I used an adhesive bra and it worked just fine. I normally wear a 0 or 2, and the 2 fit better overall; however, i would not have been able to move my arms/shoulders in the 2. The person before me must have had the same problem because the hooks on the upper part of the 2 were all pulled open. The 4 was slightly roomy on me, but it wasn't notable and gave me plenty of room for eating/drinking and mobility for dancing. The material was slightly worn, but nothing too noticeable. It's a gorgeous dress - almost more of a deep pink - and you will get tons of complements when you wear it. The fabric isn't too hot/thick, so it's appropriate any time of the year.

What a great dress! If you are hesitating, stop right now and put it in your basket!
I am tall (5' 10") with a very defined hour glass figure, and I was concerned that this wasn't going to fit such a curvy body, but it was gorgeous! I got so many compliments, and I was VERY comfortable in the dress. I do have a larger bust size (DD) and was worried after reading some of the comments that I wouldn't be able to wear a strapless bra, but I was able to, and had no problems at all! A little more expensive than some of the other rental options, but worth every penny! If this dress ever comes up on the sale rack I will be first in line!

Elegant and classy, this dress is perfect for any formal affair. Like others, I love the red color and intricate lace details. The neck line is a little loose but otherwise this dress is 100% fabulous.

Loooooved this dress!!!!!
This dress is absolutely beautiful and I got compliments on it all night. It's solidly constructed and the ribbing/lace hide body imperfections. I paired it with the Kate Spade Chandelier Earrings which were a perfect match (I love red with gold accessories). Even though the back is partially open, it comes up high enough to hide back fat and shapewear (I wore Spanx and an adhesive bra underneath). My only complaint was that it bunched a little at the waist, but this is because I am short waisted so unless a dress is available in petites (which RTR does not currently offfer) I tend to have this problem. Also, one of the anchors for one of the hook and eye closures was missing, but I reported it to RTR and they will fix it before the next rental. Overall- this dress will make you feel fabulous, especially if you pair it with red soles :)

I received many compliments on this dress.
I would have liked the dress to be tighter throughout, but it did for perfectly in the bust. There were four hooks on the back upper piece, one of which was missing. But that was not noticeable. Overall I would recommend it but not rent again.

Gorgeous color and the back is unforgettable!
This was a backup dress after my original order didn't fit me right. Luckily, I live in NYC and was able to go to the showroom to swap it out. It's definitely fitted. I have a broad ribcage, so the 4 was a little tight there. But everywhere else was fine. I was also able to wear a regular strapless bra and keep it down in the back, so it didn't show through. This dress had a few snags in the lace and the lining was actually a teensy bit longer than the lace, but other than that it was a gorgeous dress and beautifully made. And you can't beat the color

Very pretty and elegant
This dress was sent as a back up because the one I had ordered was not available. (Thank you RTR for sending a back up! ) it was a very pretty dress but I'm not a size 0 - I had ordered my 2nd size smaller because the reviews said that dress ran large- so I couldn't get the back to zip up all the way. I am short, so it came down just past the knee. The lace detail is very pretty!

Great dress!
This dress was fantastic! You cannot wear a regular bra with this dress - the material of the dress is fairly thick so I felt comfortable without a bra. The slip at the bottom showed a bit when I sat down but not a huge deal. I was very happy with the dress overall.

Beautiful rental
It was a great rental and I ordered size 0 and 2 and both of them fit exactly the same. It was pretty tight fitting and made it hard to move around in but I ended up having a lot of fun and dancing in it!
