RTR was fantastic! I loved not having to take a formal gown in my suitcase.

I am pretty much a true size 6 and this fit great. It was very comfortable as well. I had the 6L and the length was fine. I 5'8.5". I did have to be careful to pay attention so I didn't trip as the length was definitely to the floor. I revived a ton of compliments and would love to rent this dress again! It comes in a few other colors so I might!

I wore the dress to the Marine ball, got a lot of complements, and got engaged!!! #beautifulmoment

Loved the dress fit well, it was a bit tight in the arm area, probably because I have broad shoulders. Also probably should have went with a regular length instead of long was about 1-2 inches too long for me. Other than that I absolutely loved the dress.

This was my first time renting from RTR and they definitely did not disappoint. Very helpful!

I wore this dress to Kappa Sigma's Founder's Day and this dress was PERFECT to say the least! Very classy! I got so many compliments on it all night. This dress is so comfortable and very easy to dance in. Fitted top but if you have hips like me this dress is definitely for you. It being very flowy at the bottom made it easy to move around. I typically wear a 6 or an 8 depending on the fit of the dress but When I tried them on there really wasn't much of a difference. The only issue I had was that the zipper would put up a fight, so you might need someone else to help you but other than that, it was perfect! I honestly didn't want to send it back! I WILL be using RTR again!

The dress was absolutely gorgeous and received several compliments. it is slightly snug near the underarms however it was by no means a deal breaker. I would definitely make the same choice all over again!

Lady in red at a christmas-time wedding!

I rented the 12L and 14L and admit, I freaked out that they'd be too long. I am always in between those 2 sizes. However, the long worked out well as I wore 3 inch heels. I danced all night and felt so glamorous in this dress. Random recommendation for ladies with a larger bust who wear this: my strapless bra is great but the girls weren't as lifted as they needed to be, so get this: I wore a sports bra under this dress. (Probably a sin in a gown like this!) but with my hair down and the way the straps landed, no one knew and I was super comfy all night for the wedding! Would totally rent this again in other colors! Finally a RTR success for me :)

The dress to wear if you want to look and feel like a million bucks!

I wore this gorgeous red dress to a New Year's Eve wedding in Boston and definitely stood out (in a good way!!) in the sea of black dresses! The length was perfect for flats and easy to move in. I would have gotten the long and worn heels, but the length wasn't available. It was a little snug through the hips, but was very comfortable other than that... plenty of room in the top for my size Ds. The zipper was tough to go up especially as it gets past the added fabric around the waist, but once it clears that it's good to go! It was tough to zipper when I put it on the hanger not just when I put it on. I got so many compliments all night long!

In a sea of red dresses, I still received compliments all night long!

I wore this to an Air Force event, so almost everyone was wearing the squadron color- red, and I still felt great in this dress. I ordered the petite length hoping to be able to wear flats, as I also ordered hem tape; which I didn't receive in time for the event- but I was able to wear 3 inch heels and the petite length was perfect. The zipper was super sticky, but I didn't have any real issues with the dress.

Favorite rental... Ever!

This dress is simply amazing. I wore it to my sisters rehearsal dinner. It fit beautifully and the length was perfect with 3" heels. I wore a strapless bra with it and it was perfect. The color is striking. The red is so beautiful and loud but not obnoxious. Would BUY if I could... I loved this dress!

Great fast customer service! They helped with every question and problem I had.

Fit true to size, however the fabric at the waist seemed to go up as I walked and it made the bust puff up and looked weird in pictures.

The dress was beautiful and comfortable.

The length of the regular dress was great - I wore short heels and the dress fell perfectly (I'm 5'7"). The sizing was a little small. Overall the dress was comfortable and looked great.

I saw this dress and knew it would be perfect for a formal "fire and ice" theme and it was!

I usually wear a 10 but picked a 12 because of my bust size and the 12L was perfect with the heels I wore. The accessories were perfect as well it completed a flawless look and was easy to pull off.

The vibrant red and flow of the dress made it easy to feel comfortable and still stand out!

I was worried about the dress running small so instead of ordering 2L and a 4L, I decided to go with a 4L and a 6L which was a saver because the 4 was definitely small. I ended up wearing it anyway because the 6 was just too big in the chest. It was small in the neck and arm, it was a bit uncomfortable but it made me look slim and tall. I'm 5'8 and wore 3 inch heels so the long length was just perfect. I would definitely rent again in a different color for a fall wedding. It's a perfect dress to wear fun jewelry!

A perfect black tie dress!

I really loved wearing this dress which is even more elegant in person than it looks online. I am 110 lbs, 5'5" and the size 0R was the perfect floor-skimming length with my 3" heels. I was worried as my backup size 2 was unavailable, but it worked out fine. The material and color are gorgeous and the dress doesn't wrinkle at all, even after being shipped. All in all, a great experience which I will absolutely do again! Also love the "extras" RTR sends along like gum, body lotion, etc.

Comfortable yet sassy

I must say this dress was not my first choice for a Valentine's Day gala, but I had slim pickings when I decided to order somewhat late. The gown enhances a small bust, but it does not highlight your bottom. It is very comfortable to walk, dance, and eat in (without fear of growing a food baby)! Like many RTR reviewers, I received many compliments all night. The dress does run just a tad long, and I wore 3" heels to have the dress skim the ground. The size 0 gown I had sent came with some fabric displaced so the back zipper wasn't fully covered so hopefully that gets repaired prior to the next rental!

Comfy but flattering! The perfect princess dress!

I wore this dress to a Mardi Gras Ball. The top was very fitted but allowed enough room to move, sit, dance, etc. the skirt was super flowing which gave it that process feel. The dress is true to color. It's red with peach undertones. This dress was so comfortable. The picture does not do it justice. I'm even considering renting it in a different color for next year!

Absolutely loved this dress! I went with the 8R for the length which was perfect with flats! Although it was more comfortable I felt the 10R was too long as I'm only 5'5".

This dress was gorgeous! Loved how flowy!

It fit great! Normally I get small dress sizes because I am a pear so even though I weigh 145 and am 5'3 I have a small waist. With dresses that wrap at the waist I can get away with a 4 but in this one I got an 8 and it zipped perfectly.

Flowed beautifully and looked fabulous against his dress blues!

Standing up and sitting frequently (up down up) was difficult. Dress would get caught under my shoes and chair. Excellent to dance in.

Pop of color in a black and white world. Nothing but compliments all night

Loved the color and the material of the dress. Very flowy and forgiving for those problem areas to want to hide. My only con is that the top of this dress was very snug. I'm not huge in the chest area but I definitely have some curves and if you are the same you should definitely size up to compensate for this issue. The other con would be the zipper on this dress is extremely difficult to zip up. My boyfriend had to zip this up little by little and it was a pain. But with that said I loved everything else about this dress and I would get it again in a heartbeat. The length was perfect for me with 4-5 inch heels on. Thanks RTR!!!

I got so many compliments on this dress all night long.

The color is a VIBRANT red. Fit was perfect for me. I have a smaller waist with larger hips and a little tummy. This hides the tummy!! If you have a thicker waist you may want to size up. It is long but I wore some sky high heels with it and it was a perfect length for me. The flow of this dress was just gorgeous and after my 1st 2 I rented fell thru for this event, I called immediately and they sent this to me next day. I was so grateful for RTR's fantastic customer service that put my mind at ease for this fabulous charity ball. Thank you again for an amazing look RTR!!! I will rent this dress again!!

Amazing dress!!

This dress was amazing. Good thing the 12 fit because they sent me a completely different dress in the same color for my second size. Which didn't fit and I later found out it was identical to the bridesmaids dresses. That would have been uncomfortable. I had people telling me all night how amazing my dress was. One of the brides family members even told me I was best dressed at the wedding! I would love to have another event to wear this dress to!!! Definitely happy with this rental!! Thanks RTR for another win!!!

Kind of disappointed with this dress :(

I had high hopes for this one because reviews were great and it looked like it would easily flatter me. It just felt like I was drowning in fabric. I rented the 4 which is my usual size. In hindsight maybe I should've gotten a size down. I think it just wasn't for me.

Don't mind our goofy grins! We laughed the entire night and the dress was perfect.

The dress was tighter in the rib area for me but I've always had broader ribs. This dress was really pretty and flowy. I hate to be cliche but I truly felt like a princess.

This was my first RTR experience and can't believe I waited this long!

This beautiful gown is definitely true to size. I wore the 2L which was slightly long on me even with 4 in heels, but the overall fit was great. I absolutely loved it
