The Pretty Woman Dress!

Who doesn't remember that iconic red dress that Julia Roberts wore to the opera in Pretty Woman? Well, this looks just like it and it's lovely. The fit is true to size. I am 5'7" and the regular length was fine with a 3 inch heel, but I wonder if the 8L would've been even better. Classic and elegant.

I felt stunning!

I was worried about renting this dress before any other reviews were posted. I'm 5'3", 125 lbs, and busty so I was nervous the dress would show off a bit more than I wanted. However, I was pleasantly surprised! The dress had some give and the sleeves are sturdy so they don't slip down all night. It does lack a really defined waist line, but I think it would take away from the beautiful neckline if it did have one. I was complemented on it all night! I was worried about it being short with some super high heels. I ordered a 4L and it was way too long even with my 3.5" heels. Nothing a little temporary hem tape couldn't fix. Next time I would order the regular.

Classic, flattering dress!

This was my first time renting from RTR but was so pleased with my experience. The dress arrived as promised to my hotel on the expected day of delivery. My preferred size (2L) fit me like a glove and was the clear winner since I had also brought 2 other gowns that I had purchased as potential backups. My only issue was that the dress was pretty wrinkly - and even after trying to steam it in the bathroom while running hot water for an hour - I had to go out and purchase a hand held steamer to get all the wrinkles out. Otherwise, this was a total 5 star experience and will definitely be a return customer! Thanks RTR!

Beautiful!

Although I felt a bit like Jessica Rabbit in this stunner, I got compliments all night and felt amazing in it. The one downside is the inner lining. For some reason it kept bunching at my lower back, perhaps due to the nylon not gliding easily against the Spanx I wore. Would recommend going bold with this one :)

Stunning red dress

I can't remember the last time I fit into a 4, but the 4 and the 6 were equally as tight around my bottom half, so I went with the 4 because the top of the dress fit me a lot better. It's a VERY form-fitting dress, so just keep that in mind! I absolutely LOVED the cut and the off the shoulders look. Highly recommend!

Beautiful red dress

It runs very large and the lining on the dress is weird because it has a stretch fabric thats not sewed to the actual lining, if you rent this dress pull the the lining first and then fix the middle fabric.

Absolutely gorgeous red dress

I realized last minute I needed a black tie dress for a wedding so I popped into the Flatiron store in hopes that I could find something for that weekend. This was the first dress I tried on, and after that none of the others even came close. The neckline is gorgeous and the color and shape are sexy, without being over the top. The waist could have been a little more fitted, but overall I thought it was true to size.

So many people told me I looked like Pretty Woman!

Loved this dress so much! I wore to military ball with my husband & received so many compliments! I wore a 6R which was plenty long enough for my 5'7" height and 2" heels! I'm 150lbs right now & I wish I would've had the 8R just for comfort but I could def get away with the 6.

Couldn't have been more perfect!

This was my first rental and the experience was awesome! My first size fit perfectly, I would say it is very true to size. I am 5'4" and the length of the dress was absolutely perfect with 3.5" heels. The fabric is thick enough to be smooth and keep its beautiful shape but not so think that it is hot. The neckline has a little rubber lining to keep it all perfectly in place on your shoulders. I have never felt so great in a dress. I wore this to a Navy Ball and received a ton of compliments!o

I felt very elegant and comfortable in this dress.

I wore this to a military ball and it was perfect. The fit was very flattering on my figure and it was comfortable to dance in. It is a little form fitting in the mid section. But I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone.

Last Minute Dress Saves the Day

I ordered this dress the week of a gala and it came the night before. I ordered a 4R and a 6R. Tried on the 4 and it was a great fit so I never even tried on the 6. I did wear spanx to help with the stomach area and smooth things out and they did not show. The regular length was great for my 4 inch heels but I would suggest a Long if you're taller than 5'5 and want a long gown. I got tons of compliments on the dress and felt beautiful in it.

Perfect for a ball!

This dress was perfect for the marine corps ball. The dress is very elegant and form fitting. I do wish I would've ordered the regular instead of long (I'm about 5,7 and wore 3-4 inch heels) because it was a little too long. I loved my experience with RTR and will definitely be renting again!

If you want people to gasp when they see you, rent this dress.

I'm 5'10 and this dress was still long enough that I could wear heels. It was form fitted and slide on like a glove. My occasion was a military ball, and a 70 year old veteran made a point of telling me I was the most beautiful woman there. Besides his wife of course ;) This dress helped make my whole night. It's elegant, stunning, and will turn heads. I would highly recommend!!

This dress is AMAZING! I've never received so many compliments or felt more glamorous. Snug through the butt and hips but it is so comfortable and I felt great for 7+ hours in it.

Beautiful!

This dress is beautiful!!! I am wider in the hips with a smaller bust. The 12R fit great in the hips but was too big up top. The 10R fit great up top but was a little tighter than I would have liked elsewhere. I went with the 10 because I didn't want to be showing anything up top! I am 5'2 and wore 3 inch heels and t was a little long but I liked it that way. The only other issue I had was that someone before me cut the middle layer of the dress at the upper thigh and I had to go to the restroom to pull it down and adjust a few times or it would bunch up. But, overall I am satisfied. Got a ton of complements and get beautiful!

It is a dress that will make people wow and strangers compliment you! It's beautiful and stunning! It's long for a petite girl so be prepared to hem the bottom. But it will show the best side of your body because it hides all imperfection! Just love it!

Perfect for a black tie event!

This dress is stunning. Very true to size. I am usually a 6 or an 8. The 6 was snug in my chest so I wore the 8 and had a little more room in the waist area. I was concerned about the sleeves because I have athletic arms but it fit just right. Lots of compliments.

RED STUNNER

Rent this dress! I wore it to the marine corps ball and it was perfect for the occasion. Fit really well and comfortable. The slip and material are heavy so perfect for a colder night. If it had a slit, it would be good to wear in warm weather. So glad I tried RTR. I had to wear a boot because I had surgery so the length was perfect. If you are 5'6" or taller and you're wearing heels, I would get the long version.

Drop Dead Gorgeous

It was so perfect for the marine ball! It got there on time and I went with the smaller size since I liked the snugness of the dress! Got so many compliments and really felt beautiful in the dress! The only con would be that you could see the ribbing of the dress a bit but no one else could tell!

Sexy, flattering, showstopper

This dress was very flattering and sexy, but I did have to pin up the front as it was too long for me. It drew the attention away from any unattractive areas, and was perfect for a full bust. Overall great outfit for a special night or party.

Amazing curve hugging red dress!

Color is amazing, fits like a glove, fabric is stretchy so hugs body, but looks great. Usually wear 6-10, wore the 8. I'm 5'7" and regular length was good with 2-3" heels. Perfect for a black tie wedding.

As elegant as the photos

This is a beautiful dress! The color matches the photos, beautifully made with thick but flexible fabric which keeps everything in. You should know that there is boning in the bodice. It helps create a beautiful hourglass shape, but the boning in my dress wasn't very smooth. I had to MacGyver it so that the boning didn't jam into my ribs all night. That being said, I would totally rent again!

Timeless

This dress was so much fun to wear to the ballet. It was tasteful but not frumpy. The 4L would have also fit, but I wanted to be able to sit comfortably. I'm 5'11" and the 6L was exactly long enough to wear with flats. This dress is constructed in a cool way because it's boned in the bodice and padded in the chest so you don't have to wear a bra, even if you would normally never do that without feeling awkward. Also, there are three layers to this dress: the pretty outside layer, the full-length lining all the way on the inside, and a secret middle layer of shapewear in the middle that hits at mid-thigh. It makes the dress crazy flattering!!

This dress fit like a glove so I wore a size up then my normal. I'm usually 6 or 8 and I wore a 10 because it was a tight fit. The 8 fit, but I wanted more room. I'd recommend this dress!!

Glamorous red!

This dress was super comfortable and photographed great. The 6R fit a little better than the 8R, which felt like it might fall down because I had some wiggle room. The material is very thick and comfortable to wear, but the three layers sometimes took some adjusting to look right. I didn't need to wear a bra or spanx with this and I would definitely wear it again!

I received SO many compliments on this dress!! People were giving me compliments all night!

The fit runs true to size, and the dress itself could not be more comfortable. I didn't spend my night pulling the top up, adjusting the skirt so it would go down, or any other annoying habits that comes with wearing a formal gown! The L length was perfect for my 3.5 inch heels, and simply grazed the floor as I walked. While the sleeves keep you from taking your arms for many things (like dancing), I was more than able to adapt my movements. I honestly don't know how I'll top this dress at next year's gala!!

Stunning dress

Love this dress! I rented both the 0 and the 2 petite and they both fit but the length on the petite was better. The dress was very comfortable aside from occasional pokes from the boning in the waist when sitting down.
