Elegant and fitting - not for me

I loved this dress online! I'm super short and overall petite and thought this would be a safe bet. I didn't wear it, maybe if it came in petite sizes. It has never been worn, it still has the tags. I loved the style and the color. It's very pretty, just not a good fit for me.

Flattering but too big

I wore a size that was too big for me, I could have sized down to a 14 or a 16 but the dress looked fine big. I am petite and the dress is knee length which made this a midi dress on me. I felt very fashionable with the off the shoulder. I would only wear this if you have a large bust. The top of the dress is HUGE.

Perfect for dinner + orchestra tickets to closing night

The boning in this is perfect if you're going to eat before sitting for a long time. Length kept it classy, off the shoulder detail gives a little more, but still more demure than I would normally pick! I wore this to an opera and got tons of compliments. Would highly recommend! Also I've normally been wearing a size 6/8 but this felt tighter in the chest, my bra size is 32F so the 10 was great.

Perfect birthday dress

I loved the fit of the dress and the way the dress accentuates your curves. It's classy with a little sexy as you're showing off your shoulders. The only thing is the zipper was hard to get up.

So many compliments!

Everyone loved the dress, although it was a little tights. I usually wear an 18-20 maybe, but this 20 was barely fitting me. I love the material, not too stretchy, so it gave me a nice figure. I would recommend/ rent this dress again, just in a bigger size!

Amazing dress and brand new too!

There is a graceful elegance that comes with this dress that made me feel effortless. It did make dancing a bit restricting , but nonetheless an amazing dress that I enjoyed wearing. I received many compliments and am so glad that I chose it for my winter formal!

Kentucky Derby Engagement Party

I rented this dress for a Kentucky Derby themed Engagement Party. I received so many compliments on this dress! It was a little tight around the bust and shoulders but was manageable. I normally wear size 8 dresses, if I ordered this dress again I would try the size 10. Very happy with this dress!

Beautiful dress!

This dress was super cute but i rented another that won. The arms are super tight and there is no stretch in the fabric. It's more of a thick satin fabric than it appears in the pics.

Gorgeous dress!

Love the scallop neckline! Color was a big hit. Only downfall was the boning on the chest that ended at the smallest part of my waist. Wish it continued through the tummy. It created a bump in the middle section that looked like a roll. The length was perfect for my shorter legs. Very slimming and flattering.

Classic beauty

Loved this dress. The scalloped off-the-shoulder top is insanely flattering and just gorgeous. Also has pockets, a huge plus for me. I received several compliments throughout the evening. A couple of minor watch outs: the sewn in boning in the dress created a bit of a strange line across my stomach and the dress wrinkles very easily and is hard to press.

Red Bombshell Dress- Showstopper

Beautiful unique dress!

Very unique and so on trend with the off shoulder and scallops. Wore it to my bro in laws wedding and received a ton of compliments. I did have to size up to keep the boning from poking me, and it still did. But again a beautiful dress and I enjoyed wearing it

Glad I had this!

This dress fit like a dream. The dress I originally rented was too big and I couldn't wear it for my best friend's bachelorette party, so this was the backup dress I picked and it is the perfect party dress. The neckline is too much fun and the color to die for. It really flatters curves with internal boning and great structure! It was a little dressier than I anticipated it would be, but the material still felt light and had great movement.

I wore this dress to a big wedding that I attended. It was perfect! The dress was definitely tight on the arms and makes it hard to move so definitely plan on that. All in all the dress fit beautifully and I would highly recommend this dress

Pretty

I wore this dress for my birthday. Pretty dress and the pockets are the best part. I will say it fits small so I wore one size up and would have felt more comfortable in two sizes up to be honest. Would def rent again and wish it came in more colors!

Bold for Engagement Photos

I liked wearing this dress a lot. The hen must have fallen out before and this was fixed. The stitches showed through the front of the dress, which I was nervous about since I was goi got be photographed in the dress, but it tribes out okay. This was fun to wear but the boning kind of poked me in a funny place which was uncomfortable. Also, the nature of the fabric was.. odd to me. It didn't look as nice as a normal satin and there were some snags. I loved the off the shoulder scalloping and it turned out to be a great choice for me engagement photos.

Arms are way small, but overall fab dress

I wore this dress to a 1960s-themed black tie gala. The full A-line skirt and striking color were perfect. The shiny thick fabric makes it feel very formal. Big pockets and modest hemline are a plus. I loved that this dress felt very age-appropriate, especially because modest black tie attire often tends toward matronly...I looked classy and yet still my age. Matching red shoes and pearls were a fabulous touch. I usually wear a 2 (sometimes even a 0 in JCrew type sizing), but I definitely needed the 4 in this one. The 2 was more flattering on me because the corset is very slimming, but this fabric has absolutely no give, and I needed at least a little bit of room for food and drink expansion! More importantly, if there was any hope of me raising my arms to the dinner table, that just wasn't going to happen in the 2. The arms are VERY restrictive. In the 4, I was able to eat and dance with moderate restriction. I have broad shoulders and more muscular arms, so a slender frame would have slightly more success. Overall I'd say the corset and skirt are true to size but the arms run detrimentally small.

Quick Delivery!

Comfortable except for the frame inside, but it didn't bother me too badly. Ordered the size I thought I was and did not fit, they managed to send me the next size up within the next day so that I could have it for my event! Perfect length, nice material, and I received lots of compliments!!

Loved this dress but the ribbing inside was extremely uncomfortable

I rented this dress for my own birthday party, it ran a little small on me but I had two sizes in it. The ribbing inside was breaking through the fabric so there was a sharp poking all night, especially while sitting. I did receive a lot of compliments on the dress and it was a great fabric.

The color.

The fit was great. The boning of the dress was a little bit uncomfortable, so for being in the dress for about 12 hours (long day) it wouldn't have been very comfortable so I went with another dress. But the fit and color were great !

Sooo many compliments!!

This was the last dress I tried on in the Chicago store and knew right away this was the dress I wanted to wear to my company's employee appreciation cocktail party in Lake Geneva! I'm not kidding, the compliments didn't stop all night! The dress fit VERY small - I ended up wearing the backup size (22W), and I am a 16 in pants/XXL in shirts! I would caution anyone who rents it to be careful with the boning in the top - both the 20W and the 22W had issues with the boning poking out in several places, to the point I couldn't even zip the dress up because it was so uncomfortable. The dress I tried on in the store had the same issue.

Christmas party dress

Great dreas for a party. Bodice is fitted but seems to run true to size. Plenty of room for arms in sleeves. You'll have trouble reaching overhead if you position the sleeve caps so the neckline runs horizontal, but it wasn't a problem for me. The only disappointing part was the dress was becoming a bit worn. A bodice support rib had eroded through the fabric and the sharp point scratched my ribcage, ouch!

Update to a timeless holiday look!

I got so many compliments on the dress! The color was stunning and I loved the scallop off shoulder look. I had two issues with the dress but they are managable issues. The first is that you cannot lift your arms high. The off shoulder and wiring limits this. Also, the wiring poked me in the stomach ALL night long which was uncomfortable. Still, this is a dress i would wear again anyways!

RTR Team Review!

Twirl around the dance floor in this beautiful red dress! Rented in a 0 this dress does run small and I would recommend sizing up. The scalloped off the shoulder detail is delicate and fem and accentuates your collar bone. The sleeves are a trickier fit if arms are your problem area. I had trouble lifting my arms over my head. It is fitted throughout the midsection and hips area. I would recommend wearing with a strapless bra and spanx! The length was perfect and hit me just above the knee. This dress would be great for a fancy dinner date or any formal event in your future.

Too Small :(

The dress looked beautiful online and it was also nice in person, but I found it to be a tight fit in the chest and arms. There is boning built into the dress, but it ends mid-abdomen so I felt like there was a pooch in the lower ab area. I probably needed to order the next size up (4). It also ran a little long for someone who is 5'3 so I ended up ordering a replacement dress.

I received so many compliments on this dress.

I'll be honest, it was NOT comfortable. The ribbing in the corset was borderline puncturing my sides every chance they got. The top was still a bit big even though the girls are big. The length was shorter than I liked BUT --------> it had pockets. And that was the biggest reason I wore it. It was not something I'd buy or wear again but for this event (I gave a talk to a few hundred people about being a foster parent), it was worth it. I love the color and is not something I usually wear but it helped me feel confident (albeit a bit uncomfortable). I always said I wasn't a modest person because I cuss way too much but the amount of skin I showed definitely left me feeling modest.

The event was so much fun, drinking and dancing with Phil Vassar as we celebrated 100 yrs Red Cross.

Loved this dress! It was a show stopper, I felt amazing and for the most part it was comfortable. They didn't have a back up size for me so I had no choice on fit. I normal wear a 14 and it was a little tight in the chest. The top of the dress should have been ironed but I had this shipped to a friend because the event was out of state and she had a later department time so she brought it to the event.

Pretty color and neckline

I didn't wear this dress because it was a back-up and the sizing was a little bit on the small side. I loved the color, the length was perfect, but the off shoulder style made it a little tricky to move my arms so I knew I wouldn't be comfortable on the dance floor in it. Very pretty dress tho!

Gorgeous rooftop wedding at the Detroit Opera House.

Gorgeous dress; sturdy material. As others have mentioned, the arm bands appear to have wire in them, making it difficult to lift your arms. I would recommend sizing up as I typically wear a size 4 and found the 6 to be more comfortable. This sizing could have something to do with the dress being manufactured in China :)

Runs small on top!

I would've loved this dress- if I could have worn it! I've rented this exact same designer before, and worn a 14. I rented a 14 and a 16, and the 16 had INCHES between the zipper. My husband finally got it zipped, but the fabric was all rippled around the neck, due to too much bust squished in there. The next size they had was a 20, so they sent that, but it literally fell off my body- like, even my 36G bust didn't hold it up. So, I suppose I would've worn an 18 if they had it. But be warned- if you are top heavy, this runs small. I went back and looked at all the reviews, and I think most of the people who put "true to size" were a bit more pear-shaped.
