Bright red makes you stand out!
Literally fit perfectly. The waist cinching is perfectly positioned to hide any pudge from a big meal. I also didn't find it overly confining to the point where i was unable to dance. It truly was such a pleasant surprise how well it fit! I had so many compliments! I'm 5'3", 124 pounds, athletic build, c-cup.

I wore this to a military ball.
Love this dress! I'm 5'9" and usually wear a size 0 so I ordered a 0L and it fit great! I'm small chested so I questioned if I would be able to fill it out (lol) but I was able to wear a strapless bra and had no issues. I was comfortable in it all night. It's a true red (I would say blue-based red) so I would imagine it would look great on a lot of different skin tones. I would definitely recommend this dress!

Fit like a glove. I'm smaller chested and it was kinda tight around the chest--which means it wasn't falling down either. I didn't have to keep adjusting. It has nice pieces of rubber material around the bust to keep in place. Would wear again. The 6R is my usual size n the length was perfect with 3-4 inch heels. I'm about 5'6.

I received soooooo many compliments on this dress!
The fit is true to size! The bust is a bit large and I'm a 32 DDD, but a little adjusting all night did not bother me because this dress is AMAZING! I'm also 5'11 and the regular style length fit me perfect with 2 inch heels! You won't regret it!

Gorgeous dress! Great fit and it stays up well.
I'm 5' 3", weight 118lbs, and am a 34B. Originally I ordered a size 2P with the 0P as a backup, but I ended up wearing the size 0P because I like a tighter fit; although the size 2P would have fit as well. Both size dresses were floor length and covered my feet in medium sized heels. The dress is a thicker, quality material and I had no issues with the strapless dress staying up. I absolutely loved the dress and got multiple compliments throughout the night.

Lots of compliments wearing this stunning red dress
I ordered this dress after the initial one I ordered was just a tad too snug. RTR customer service is the best and even created a list of dresses they had available in my sizes to overnight. This dress fit like a glove and hugged all the right curves. I received a ton of compliments. I'm 5'2" and wore the regular length, with about a three inch heel, and the dress just dusted the ground. The material is of great quality and the color is a perfect vibrant red. The bottom twirls nicely too. :-) I hate strapless bras and chose not to wear one, and the dress stayed up just fine, but this may not be the case for someone with a smaller chest. It was slightly loose up top, but I attribute that to having to size up to accommodate my booty. I wasn't worried about it slipping, even when dancing. Definitely recommend this for anyone, but especially someone with curves! I was sad to return it.

Military function - classy yet sexy
Dress was a little snug on my chest (32D) but it stayed up incredibly well all night - even on the dance floor! Definitely be careful of the slight train, I made sure to bustle my dress whenever I would walk anywhere of decent distance (or if I thought anyone might be in close proximity behind me)

Petite size ball gown
This dress fit like a glove. Needed a little assistance zipping it up if I wanted to wear a bra underneath. Luckily this came in a petite size and I was able to wear it without taping the bottom with just 2.5" heels

Extremely fun at the polo Ball!! n b
I usually wear a 0, I ended up wearing the size 2 becuase the dress was a bit snug. I wish it was a little shorter becuase when it came to dancing I did not want to wear my stilettos. Other than that the dress was amazing and was a perfect hit for the night!

Last formal event with former coworkers. We didn't win though! (Emmys)
Love love loooooved this dress, I'm so happy I got it. I mean I'm not the skinniest girl in the world, I was definitely a little uncomfortable in the midsection but it made my chest look great, everyone said I looked "stunning." I feel like the scrunchy-looking midsection was very flattering. Cant remember what size heel I wore, maybe 4", and the dress JUST swept the floor (I'm 5'0"). Definitely recommend.

Unforgettable Dress
I have a little pudge and this dress helped hide that pudge and curved at the right places! I felt super secure and comfortable in this dress. I wore a strapless bra with it. I'm 5'8 so the long with heels was perfect, any shorter than my height it would've been dragging on the floor.

Beautiful color and dress. You will look like a model!
I rented the 0P and 2P after reading all the reviews below. I'm 5.3', 110 lbs and I wore the size 0P. I have small breasts (32-34B) so even the 0P was big on me. The dress around the waist was very comfortable and the length was perfect with 3" heels. My two cons are that it was big on my breast, so I was really uncomfortable all night pulling the dress up. And my second con is that the dress had a hole in one of its side. But RTR took care of it. Good customer service.

Red Dress Emoji!
The dress has incredible stretch, it is very comfortable and accentuates in all the right places. There wasn't a petite style available so I ended up renting the regular, which was very very long. I used fashion tape for the bottom but my heel kept getting caught on the seam. So I would say if you are short (I am 5'2'') definitely get the petite if its available.

Wedding!
So after reading the reviews I got this dress because I thought the length would be good for my height. I am 5'1" so longer dresses can always be difficult. I got the 4 petite and thought the length was perfect. I wore 3 inch heels which worked perfect and then switched to flats in the middle of the night and didn't have a problem. I did have to hold my dress up at time but nothing where I felt uncomfortable. You will need a strapless bra. It is a pretty stretchy dress. I work out a lot but my butt is still a problem area at times. I was able to fix the problem with spanx to help smooth things out in the back area and feel confident and comfortable :)

Beautiful gown for themed gala
This dress fits almost perfectly to size! I wore 3-inch heels and it was the perfect length. The bust was a little big, so I kept having to pull it up, but other than that, it fit really well and looked great on.

This dress, and Rent The Runway customer service, were truly amazing.
I cannot begin to describe this experience - it went from being excited, to distraught, to truly amazed. When I rented this dress to take engagement photos in New York City, I was ecstatic. Flash forward to the day I was set to leave for my trip (the day I was supposed to receive the dress) and I got contacted by RTR saying it would be late. However, nor hell or high water was keeping them from getting me this dress. They UBER rushed me this dress when I arrived in Manhattan, it was a guy on a bike. It was truly incredible how above and beyond they went to get me this dress. Very happy with the dress, too. It hugged all the right spots AND looked amazing in my photos!

Beautiful dress!!
I rented this for junior prom (last year) and am still getting compliments a year later! This dress is so classic and flattering, it really makes an event special. If i could wear this dress to prom again this year, i totally would! I wore this with 5 inch heels which made the dress a teensy bit too short, but it still worked. Love!!

Perfect for Prom
I should have listened to the reviews closer because the 6 was much too large and the 4 was overall large as well. I could have gotten away with a 2. The dress was pretty fitted, i rarely had to adjust the strapless top. Would definitely rent again

Ended up wearing my backup dress and not this one.
This dress is beautiful. However, if you have a large chest, it may not be for you. I needed a bigger size for my chest but then it would've been too big everywhere else. I am 5'4" and it was a little too long.

Pretty and classic
This is a really elegant dress. I ordered the 2L (and normally wear a 4R). While the boob area was perfect, there was a ton of extra fabric in the waist area, and the dress dragged on the floor, even with 4" heels (in 5'8" barefoot). I ended up wearing a different style.

Beautiful dress
I didn't end up wearing this because it was too loose in the bust area. I'm a 36DD so I thought it would be tight and stay up but it wasn't. Also, it has a side zipper and it took me about 30 minutes to get it up. It was such a pain. I would have wore it to my event if it was was easier to get on.

Perfect Fit
I'm 5'1 and curvy. This is the right amount of sexy without looking vulgar. Wasn't spilling out of the dress and the petite was perfect. Wore a 4 inch heel. Black tie wedding- was the only one in red so I felt the color was a little out there but overall I loved the dress.

It was snug in the torso, didn't gap at the top, and was loose enough to walk in. I got lots of compliments. It was sophisticated but not too much for high school.

Loved this dress!
I am not the easiest person to find a dress for, let alone a fabulous one. This dress was absolutely beautiful. The red color was perfect. The quality of the dress was stunning...I now understand why these designer dresses are expensive. There was boning in the bodice. The back of the bodice had reinforcements as well. The stitching and the lining were amazing (it actually fit like a glove-one that moved with you and wasn't going to rip! Lol! The dress was just there to highlight your best features.) The dress was so soft too! I literally haven't felt this glamorous since my wedding day. I am 5.8 1/2" and the long version hit the floor perfectly when I wore 3" heals. I am also a 38D and my girls were well concealed (and complimented). I didn't feel like I had to readjust every 10 minutes because the dress was falling down. I highly recommend! My husband wishes he could buy me this dress, so I think I will be definitely renting again.

The color of the dress!
I got compliments all evening!! The color is perfect and the fabric is nice and thick--no visible panty lines! This dress is gorgeous. If you have a small waist/bust: it does run a bit large in the waist. I am usually a true-to-size 6. I could've rented a 4. I wore an unpadded strapless bra to help with the looseness in the bust. However, if you're a b or larger you wont need a bra for this dress. Thanks RTR!

Beauty in a Bottle saves the day!
I ordered this dress because another one I ordered did not fit. Customer service was great about sending it quickly and on time. I typically wear a size 12 in a dress but apparently I wear a 14 in formal dresses. The dress fit great! I wore the Long because the Regular showed too much of my shoes and I hate that. There was , however, a slight drag in the back which was not an issue as it made the dress look even more elegant. Im small in the bust so the fact that the top was super fitted worked out great. I did not have to keep pulling it up like I do most strapless gowns. My mid-section is a little fluffy so the bunching helped a lot with that. I would recommend getting a size up as your backup dress. Overall I loved the dress and felt great in it. :)
