Lady in Red
This dress was amazing! The fit was true to size. I wear a size 12 and wore the 12L. I'm 5'9 and the length was perfect in 3 1/2 inch heels. The material is heavy, which makes the dress look expensive. The dress hugged all my curves and the layering hide some of my trouble areas. If you want to stand out in the crowd, I recommend renting this dress. It's a show stopper! I received so many compliments!

Most people wear black to galas, but I wore red which was eye-catching. This dress is very elegant.
Although the dress is tight fitting, the dress is comfortable and I could easily move around in it.

I won an Author Award for WOMAN ON FIRE and the red dress was PERFECT!
The dress fit like a glove. The material was lovely - silky smooth. The Long was really long - I'm 5 ft 8" and even with 2 1/2 heels the dress hung long. Loved it all in all!

Runs a little big and the zipper did not lay flat, but I'm sure i was the only one who noticed.

Dress was SO classy and flattering - loved it!
Fir was perfect but the 6P was shorter than it's supposed to be, so I ended up wearing the 4P which fitted me well, but I noticed that there was something wrong with the 6P.

The fact that I was with my husband
Love how the dress fits, I didnt even have to wear a body shaper. But if your height is 5'6 DO NOT order the Regular, I made the mistake and had to place another order on the "Long", other than.that Its such a beautiful and ellegant dress.

I was not able to wear the dress as it was too tight across the hips
The dress is very pretty, but runs small and was tight across my hips. I was not able to wear the dress to my event. I had to wear something else.

Odd dress
This was my back-up dress and I am glad I had other options. Very slim through the hips, so not a good choice for anyone with a tummy or thick hips. Runs small I think. I never could figure out that wrap section, but since it was so small I didn't spend a lot of time on it.

I ordered this dress for a charity event, and I LOVED it!
It fit like a glove. It was true to size, and the length of the regular was perfect for me (I'm 5'6) with 3" heels. The material/fabric was very forgiving and quite flattering, even for a curvy figure like mine. The only problem was I felt like the sleeves were just a tad too short for my arms. Other than that, it was flawless. I received so many compliments, and I felt like a million bucks!

Gorgeous red color and beautiful detailing
I absolutely loved this dress. It was perfect for the occasion I attended. There were some really neat gatherings of fabric on this dress. The only drawback that I found was when I was moving or dancing, the bustling/gatherings would move in the back of the dress, and I would readjust. Other than that, it was absolutely stunning. It fit true to size. I would not size up or down. There is a long slit in the front/side which enables you to move easily and dance freely in this dress.

Heavier fabric, perfect for winter/fall but still breathable. Lining took some time to straighten out from how it was twisted up in the hanging case. Felt like a million bucks in this dress and the slit made dancing a cinch.

Elegant and classy!
I rented this dress for a gala dinner. It was very comfortable, which is a key driver for me. I received a lot of compliments on the dress throughout the night. I am very short, so even the petite size was a little long. Nothing a good pair of heels couldn't fix!

The dress is true to size. I am fluctuating between a 6 and 8 and this really made me feel wonderful. It sinched in all the right places and was perfect for television. The fabric is heavy but very breathable. Amazing service and so accomadating.

I wore this for my engagement photos and LOVED !!!
The material is stretchy, so if you're in between I would size down as you want this to fit snug. I was worried about how the rouching on the side would look as I do have a booty ;) but I was really happy with how this looked not only in person, but in photographs. I'm short ( 5'1) and liked the length of the regular fit with heels and it had a bit of a train "look" in the back which I really liked as well.

This was rented to wear at a St. Jude Children's Hospital Fundraiser and Gala. I felt beautiful.
This gorgeous and well made dress fit beautifully. The material was luxurious and I got many compliments. It fit perfectly in the length and overall. I am bigger busted and it did fine. I love the gathers - they hide areas in which I am self cautious about due to stomach surgeries, etc. - I would purchase this dress I loved it that much. I may even rent it again - The only con I have is that the zipper was a bit hard because of the material surrounding it, but with a little help, it was perfect. Cannot say how much I enjoyed it. My measurements weren't not adding to my profile if they're needed for comparison, I am 5'6, 46 years old and a 34DD -

This dress was so beautiful! I loved it!
I got a size 4R and 6R and the 4 was perfect! I'm 5'2 and am so happy I didn't get the Petite because I think it would've been too exact with my heels. I think my heels were four inches. Both of my dresses were in good condition except for the hems. They were both ripped. But I fixed it!

This was my backup dress. My first choice did not fit so I ended up wearing this one. I'm so glad I did! Compliments all night and it fit perfectly. I'm 5'3" and wore 3-inch heels and it was the perfect length. The split does come to mid-thigh (I was okay with that). I'd definitely rent this one again!

Charity event with my favorite designer!!!!
This dress was perfect!! It fit in all the right places, was body hugging and OH-SO Comfortable!!! I wasn't complimented like I expected, however, it was a Christian Louboutin event, and my shoes were the real star of the show!! I ordered the 14P as my backup and tried it on first. It was big. The 12R fit perfectly, just as I expected it to, based on the reviews and pictures. I didn't wear Spanx, but, I could've. I chose not to because the dress was so comfortable and the top wore so well with a regular bra. This was my first rental with RTR and it was flawless!! I've purchased dresses before, so, I kinda knew it would be great, but, it's nice to know the rental process is as good as the purchase side. If you are on the small side of a 12, you could probably wear a 10 in this dress. If I'd worn my 120mm heels, it would've been too short. I wore 100mm heels without a platform.

So Flattering!
I wore this dress in black in the 6R in December 2016 and rented it again in red in February for a company event! This dress is so flattering and comfortable! I got so many compliments and felt absolutely stunning in this dress. Wish it came in more colors! I wore the 8R for a little looser fit as we were having a heavy dinner. Love this dress!

The perfect bump friendly dress for a formal wedding
I absolutely loved this dress! I was 29 weeks pregnant and needed a formal (long) dress for an outdoor wedding. I think the dress runs a little short as I am 5'7" and the long was perfect for me with a shorter pair of heels (2 1/2 inches)... probably not ideal if you like wearing super tall heels. I felt very comfortable all night - the way the material gathered complimented my curvy pregnant body. Had I not been pregnant, I probably would have worn the 4 as there is a lot of material on the dress and it does have some stretch/ give to it. I also really liked the slit because it made it feel flirty and made walking/ dancing easier. Loved it!

This dress was perfect for the Black Tie optional event I attended. The red color is stunning!
Based on the reviews I picked the 8R. I am 5'2 and wore 2 inch heels. It was a tad long but I just lifted the dress when I walked. It's very comfortable and was easy to dance in. It does have a slit that hits mid thigh. I wore the short Spanx & a regular bra with no issues. Highly recommend this dress!!

Classic and easy fit!
The fit is true to size. I'm 5"5" and did the long which it was a tad long but I'd rather it graze the floor than be too short. Although the 4L was way too short - so that was odd. I got a ton of compliments on this dress and was so easy to wear. It hid all the right things with the rouching.

Dress fit was dreamy. Covered all the wobbly bits. Only downside was that the thigh slit was starting to come apart at the top, and the left armpit was piling. Other than that, flawless!

I wore this to an inaugural ball and received so many compliments!!!
Thicker fabric made it a good winter dress! It was a heavier material which also made it hang more but it overall was super flattering! I'm 5'1 so would have been nice to have petite as it was quite long but the slit made it doable with my tallest heels.

Felt like a million bucks, I received so many compliments!!!
I am about 5'5" and 125 lbs. I thought it ran little large because typically I wear a size 4 and I ended up wearing the backup size dress which was a 2R. It fit perfectly!! I followed the reviews of others with my body type to choose my sizes and they were right on. The zipper requires a little help but other than that I have no complaints. My money was well spent! Can't wait to rent again!

Date night at the opera!
Loved this dress. I rented this for the opera and it stood out in a sea of black. Super comfortable and the fabric was very forgiving. The only issue I had was that who ever put it in for shipment messed up which side the draping was supposed to be on so it took me a while to get it on properly.

Sexy and Elegant!
My original dress was too small, so I called RTR and ordered this one for overnight delivery. I'll be honest, I wasn't that impressed with the dress on the model, but I needed a dress ASAP for my NYE celebration. I ended up wearing the 4L. I'm 5'3 and wore 3.5 inch heels, and loved the length that the dress fell at. My only complaint about the dress is that you can see the underlining through the dress, and the underlining moves a lot, so I had to readjust often. I also think this is a dress where accessories make a big difference for the overall look. Bottom line, I got compliments the whole night. Plus I got engaged in this dress, and my now fiancé loved it! I'd definitely rent it again!

This dress is so beautifully made. It hugs the curves but is forgiving where it should. I received compliments all night on this dress... many from my gentlemen friends that said it was so classy and my girlfriends thought it was one of the most beautiful dresses worn that evening. It was perfect for an outdoor evening wedding...

Stunning!
This is the second time I've worn this dress, only this time I chose red instead of black. This time I chose the 6 long as the 6 regular was a bit short in length and arm length. I was able to wear kitten heels and still had room to wear larger heels. The slit is high so if you plan on wearing in a conservative situation make sure your legs won't be showing when you sit down.

"Who is the lady in the red dress?"
I may have gotten more attention than I bargained for in this gown.... but nonetheless I loved it!!!!!! True to size ... a little tight on the hips, but is sure to hug and accentuate every curve you have... sorry that this was the only picture I have to share.... The lighting is a little off but it was a true bright red color.... material is average... dress quality is superior.... I would definitely recommend this dress....

Bump friendly
I am 5'2 and 138lbs 28 weeks pregnant (normally 120). I wore a 4R which ended up being a bit snug. A 6 would have been more comfortable. I wore 4" heels so the length was perfect. Pros: wearing a regular bra, leg slit makes walking easy, long sleeves for the inclement weather. The dress was a hit!

Great semi-conservative option!
Rented this dress for the Marine Corps Ball. I always like to air on the conservative side for military events, and I wanted to minimize how much of my super pale skin was showing so I was happy to find a dress with long sleeves that didn't look matronly! Very TTS, though the 0L was a tad long on me (5'7" with 3" heels no platform) but it didn't cause any issues. Not the most forgiving, definitely recommend a pair of Spanx. I was very disappointed to find the dress had a slit (didn't note a slit on the sites pics and it wasn't listed on the product details) and my legs definitely did show when I walked. Not only do I hate to show my legs (they're forever banged up and awful looking) but I'm just not a fan of slits & didn't need the sexy factor. Overall though it's the most conservative dress I think I could've found and I was satisfied with it.
