This dress fit right in at a summer wedding. It's playful and happy without being glitzy, making it ideal for daytime events. The color is a vibrant and true red, and the ruffles are very well made to give the dress movement. Check out the picture of the back of the dress--I love the curved hem; to me that's what made it more than just another strapless dress. With respect to the fit, I did notice the dress was a little tight in the top (as other reviewers have mentioned). I wore the size 0 and I am am about a 32A/B or something (seems to vary everywhere you go, doesn't it?). Anyway, my chest is on the small size and I still noticed the tightness. I wasn't uncomfortable, but I'd caution against this dress if you have a larger chest. Maybe the proportions get better in the larger sizes, but that's the chance you'd be taking. The other comment I might make is that also the dress looks very light and airy, the lining around the hip area is well-tailored. It fit and felt great, but you shouldn't plan to sit open-legged or run to catch a train while wearing. This dress will keep you ladylike :)

Loved the color. Loved the fit. Added a black fabric ribbon at the waist to create a defined top and bottom. The ends of the ripples seemed a little worn but nothing too awful. Once again I could not get over how many compliments I received.

This dress was awesome - very flattering for a pear! The color is gorgeous, and the ruffles add a whimsical flare. It is perfect for a fall wedding. I have a small chest though, so while it wasn't tight for me, I could see other people with larger busts having issues.

Usually I am not one to like ruffles, but absolutely love this dress. I originally tried this dress on at a store in white, and became obsessed. This is one of those dresses that you can dress up for a bigger night, or wear for a fun night out with a belt and a blazer. Definitely size up. The dress can be snug in certain places.

I love the feeling of wearing a new dress and RTR makes it so easy. There are so many styles to choose from!

This dress was perfect for the city wedding I attended. I got lots of compliments, and my boyfriend loved it too! I'm usually afraid of wearing strapless dresses because they tend to migrate downward throughout the night, but this one stayed put and was very comfortable and fun to dance in. I usually wear a 0, but the 2 in this dress had a more flattering fit. I definitely recommend it.

I wore this for my company's christmas party and got so many compliments on the dress - everyone wanted to know where I got it! The dress was a little snug in the chest, but other than that, it fit well and you didn't have to keep pulling the dress up like other strapless dresses. Definitely recommend!

Fashion's Night Out in NYC is always a blast and I felt perfect in this dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small

This dress is super cute and the candy apple color is even more bold in person. I am usually a 2 and the 2 was a little small on me so I would recommend going one size up for your back up size. The material is really light and the ruffles are adorable. I wore this for Fashion's Night Out in New York City and it was perfect!

A little short for tall girls

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress was so cute! The ruffles are a lot of fun. I would suggest for taller girls, however, to size up. I am 5'9", 155lbs, and I usually wear a 6. I ordered an 8 and a 10 based on the other reviews, and I'm glad I ordered the 10, because the little bit of extra length was just what I needed. The width fit okay, and the grips on the inside of the dress helped it stay up.

I loved this dress, and got lots of compliments. I felt it was a little bit loose but only because I might have been better in the 4. I put a belt on it, which really gave me a great waist, and this dress really was cute and sexy all in one. I got lots of compliments!

Really fun flowy dress! It was a little loose so I just belted it to give it some shape on me. The bust was big for my 32A size but the dress was layered and ruffled so it wasn't even a problem you could see. Pretty comfortable and loved the red!

Cute and flirty dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size

The ruffles added a cute and flirty feel to it. I rented this for a company holiday party. I will say that it looked a little plain - it needed some sparkle of some sort. I added a jeweled belt to it and it was perfect.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small

There is a bra of some sort built into the dress and usually I am a 4; however, the 4 was uncomfortably snug around my bust so I ended up wearing the 6. Depending on your chest size I would definitely get your usual size and go up just in case.

I believe red is my power color and I definitely felt bright and fierce in this dress. Simple cut makes it generally figure flattering. Material is superb and the ruffles stay light and fresh throughout the night. Might be a tad small, needed help with the zipper

The color of this dress was the first thing I fell in love with. It's the perfect rich red for a spring/summer occasion. The ruffle details add a really fun and unexpected twist to this dress...the way they fall is fluid & beautiful, not tacky like some ruffled dresses can be! A definite winner!

Pretty color and style...awkward ribbing

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The style was very flattering if you haven't quite gotten to that flat tummy yet. The only thing about the dress that made it a 4 versus 5 star rating was the ribbing in the chest was very uncomfortable and kind of smashed my boobs down. Luckily the chiffon ripples on the ouside covered up the awkward shape that my newly formed breasts were subjected to, but it became quite uncomfortable later in the evening. Color was great and definitely stood out among the usual little black dresses.

Gorgeous but short

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
They were out of the size 8 when i rented it, so I had to wear the 6. I was hoping it would be okay, but it was way short. I wore it for a wedding I was in. Thankfully, I was able to tug it down to give it the appearance of looking long for the ceremony. I received a ton of compliments for it, but it's definitely more of a party piece than a formal event piece.

Comfortable, nice pop of color, fun holiday party dress

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I typically wear a size 6, occasionally an 8. In this dress, the 6 was impossible, and I ended up comfortably wearing the 10 (8 wasn't in stock). I read beforehand that this dress ran small, so I reluctantly ordered the 10, and now I'm grateful I did. I didn't need to wear a bra with this dress. I like that it is short enough to be fun and sexy but long enough to move around comfortably. I added my own belt to give the dress a little more shape.

I wore this to my company holiday party, and it was a hit! I didn't need to wear a bra because it has the non slip line at the top of the dress, as well as an additional elastic band (similar to a bra) to tight the back if needed. User friendly! Easy to move in, never too warm. The silky material is nice, (just be careful not to stain!). Otherwise, dancing and mingling was easy to do and I received so many compliments. :)

Too small so I didn't get to wear it

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I rented this for a bachelorette party, but I didn't actually get to wear this dress. I ordered my normal size, but it was too tiny, and they didn't have an option to rent a backup one size up. I didn't actually get to wear it, but if it had zipped, it probably also would have been very short, and I'm only 5'2". It looked like it would be really nice if you got the right size though! Very bright red.
