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.

Pretty dress
I need more of a defined waist, and this dress was a bit too "column-y" to be flattering on my figure. Great material and fit, and would definitely look awesome on a much taller thinner lady!

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.

RTR Team Review
This classic silhouette is stunning and super flattering. Running true to size, I'd recommend sizing up one size for backup. The corset bust runs slightly smaller and is best for smaller (A-C) cup sizes. Fitted throughout the midsection and hips, I'd consider sizing up if you're curvier. The off the shoulder sleeve is comfortable and easy to move around in. At 5'7" the 2L fit perfectly. Pair with simple jewelry, gold or silver.

Incredibly beautiful, elegant and sexy dress!
First off this is totally the dress Julia Roberts wears in Pretty Woman when she goes to the opera. I wanted a red dress for a black tie wedding, but wanted to go off shoulder. Colour is great. I got the L as I wore it with 5 inch heels, (I'm 5'7) . So comfortable to dance in! The material is thick so wouldn't recommend it for a summer wedding. Luckily it was raining that day. It was a little big on the top for me so i did tape it to my bra. Unfortunately some of the colour rubbed off onto my bra and Spanx.

Great color and comfortable
Historically I have always needed a "long" in my size. This time, the dress was much longer than normal. I ended up having to wear a lot higher heels to makeup for it. the dress is really comfortable, but the fabric shows all flaws you find in your own body. I wanted to look like I had more of a waist, so I ended up wearing a corset type thing, and a layer of spanks over it to hid the bumps form the corset. Doing that, made the dress a little too big in the waist, but it looked a lot better. The dress stays up surprisingly well on it's own.

Had to get the 8L since regular was unavailable, but hem tape did the trick. Was very flattering and form fitting.

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!

Lovely dress! Very comfortable, a little hot, but what gown isn't? Very curve hugging. Would recommend ordering a size up just in case. I usually wear a 12, but size 14 fit better. Great dress!

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.

Great for formal event!
This was my first time using RTR and I had such a great experience! I rented this dress for a black tie wedding and absolutely loved it. The neckline is standout and the overall fit of the dress was very comfortable! The shade of red is stunning and just bold enough. I am 5'9'' and went with the 4 Tall, which fit great!

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.

The color is a deep red which makes the dress a bold classic formal look.

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

Absolutely loved everything about this dress!
Absolutely loved this dress! I'm normally between a 2 and a 4, the 2R fit perfect. The 4 also fit, but it was not as form fitting in the rib area, which made it look a bit boxy. The top has a built in bra, so I was able to go bra-less (and it looked better because you could see bra lines through the fabric) -- same with undies -- make sure you have the correct fit or lines will show through with this fabric! If you're short, you'll definitely need the temporary hem tape. I'm 5'1", wore 5 inch platform heels, and dress was still too long. Had get it "hemmed" up about 1.5 inches. Tip with the hem tape: the liner is not attached to the outer layer, so both layers needed to be hemmed. The outer layer is thick and heavy fabric, so I ended up using the whole box of strips for a good look and hold. Tape held up all evening. This was my first purchase with RTR and it was a very smooth and easy process.

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.

Perfect Fit for First RTR
I wore this dress to a series premiere and could not have been happier with it. It was fitted but not tight, and I felt confident and sexy all evening. Lots of compliments and people asking where I got it! Ran a bit long (I'm 5'3''), but a little double-sided tape fixed that. The fabric is heavier than expected, but it draped well and was good for the Fall weather. This was my first RTR venture, and I'll definitely be renting again very soon!

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.

Wore for my first dance-it was a dream! So beautiful, better than I imagined.
Fit beautifully, so many compliments! There are wires inside running down the bust/stomach area to give structure that sometimes poked me, but was easily fixed by wrapping myself with an Ace bandage.

Fit perfectly but ribbing showed through too much!
This dress was drop dead gorgeous!!! I seriously wanted to cry at the ribbing that showed through way too much. The structure underneath is needed to help the dress sit pretty however unless I was standing perfectly still it looked terrible.

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!!

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!

This is my favorite dress I've rented by far! Absolutely gorgeous!
Runs true to size, very form fitting, very comfortable, beautiful color, the neckline and sleeves are cut perfectly. The only draw back was the middle slip layer that kept bunching up, I felt like I needed to adjust it every time I got up from sitting, because it doesn't just slip down, since it is a tight slip that slims the waist and thighs. This dress was so beautiful and I highly recommend it for formal affairs. Received many compliments on 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.

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!
