I felt AMAZING!
This was my first experience with RTR and I am beyond pleased! My fiancé was tasked with organizing an Air Force awards ceremony...my first time attending one. I ordered and my dress was supposed to come Wednesday before the Friday event. It came early on Monday and I fell in love! It was perfect and felt so great on. The only complaint is that the inserts in the chest area started poking me a little as the night went on. I received soooo many compliments, my fiancé raved and I felt beautiful. I ordered the petite and it was perfect with my 3 1/2 inch heels. I will absolutely be using RTR for our next event.

Off fit
Not a flattering dress for someone with curves. The twist in the dress was off and just not very comfortable.

Runs very small
This was my back up dress and I was very disappointed to find it runs very small. I'm 5" 4' and 130 pounds and normally wear a size 6. I couldn't get this dress zipped; like, not even close. Order up a size.

Sexy and comfy
Dress seems to run true to size. Love the side sweep of the middle of the dress. Dress has some stretch but zipper on the 0R and the 2R were difficult to pull up around rib cage, however once it was up the fit was comfortable and the dress fit beautifully. I was stopped on the streets several times and told how beautiful I looked. Would highly recommend this dress.

What a Striking color!
I'm quite short - only 5'1" - so I always have to rent the petite options. Unfortunately the 2P wasn't available, but the 4P was, so I order that. The 2P would have been a better fit, however the 4P was fine, and didn't slip down. I still found it a bit long and had to hike it up as I walked, but that's the story of being short. The color was fantastic, and it photographed beautifully.

The dress was a perfect touch for the charity fundraiser for the fighterfighters.
The dress was pretty much true to size. It's a side zipper so those are always a little difficult. I did not have to wear a bra which is always a plus. The dress is very flattering!

Non Stop Compliments
This dress was beautiful. I am 6 ft tall and large framed. Typically wear a 12 but in this dress it was snug. The 14L fit perfectly. The fabric was appropriately heavy to provide a lovely drape. I felt spectacular in it and got rave style reviews.

The color of the dress stood out among all other dresses.
The fit and length were perfect. It felt secure as a strapless gown and the rouching on the side added a little flare while outlining the waist and hips beautifully. Matching red lips and a retro hairstyle made it a singular look for the evening.

great color, great fit
I am 5'10, 150 lbs, but a lot of that weight is in my boobs. I am very curvy and thought this would be a great dress to show off the lady lumps. I usually wear a 6-8, and figured I would definitely need the long. The long length was perfect on the dress (long but would be good with heels) but the size 6 dress would not zip up over my boobs. It fit everywhere else except the chest. If you have big boobs, make sure to order up a size as backup! The 8L was perfect. It was a little roomier around the middle but gave me room to eat my bodyweight in food and cake.

Fits true to size but seemed a bit long for me. Occasionally my heels would catch on the dress when walking

Great dress to stand out in a sea of black
I loved this dress, unfortunately there were stains from dry-cleaning and I couldn't wear it. I say it runs small because based on reviews the 10R should have fit me and the 12 was my back up. For anyone who has a larger mid section or wide ribcage size up (I'm 155 lbs 36C). Otherwise the fit should be true to size. Other reviews have said the dress is short and I would say it was fine for me, but if you're over 5'5" you might want to consider the long.

Gorgeous dress a head turner!
Dress ran small in the bust area. It accentuate my curves. I thought it would be to tight to dance in-but it wasn't able to dance all night. I turned heads all night and received so many compliments. I wore silver rhinestone earrings, necklace, bracelet and shoes. The dress was a little long even with 5 inch hills. Enjoyed my first rental with RTR and will definitely rent again! I am 5'3, bust size 36B and 132 lbs.

Jessica Rabbit dress!
This is a glamorous dress that makes you stand out in a sea of black dresses. This was my 4th RTR rental and each one has been perfect. It runs pretty true to size, if slightly on the small side, especially if you are larger busted. The 6L was a little tight on me (but that could be because this event was in early February, and I might have had a little extra holiday weight). The material is fairly heavy, so it drapes very nicely. Makes you feel like a movie star! (Note: I'm actually a 34DD or 36D, but for some reason, I cannot edit my profile, so I can't change that.)

Wow! Just like the title of the dress, this dress made me truly feel like a beauty in a bottle!
Before I decided to rent this dress, I read the reviews and decided to go up a size based on the reviews. I normally wear a size 0, but ordered the 2P and 4P. I wore the 2P and the length was perfect with heels (I'm 5'4"), but for the fit, I should have ordered a 0P. I received many compliments for the dress and this dress felt magical! I would highly recommend this size in your true size.

PERFECTION.
Wore this for a New Years Eve gala. Absolutely perfect dress, perfect fit. I am border size 12/14 - both dresses fit, but 14 was more comfortable and fit like a glove with some spanx. I felt like my wedding day- the red dress was an eye turner, and accentuated my curves in the right places. Considering buying it I loved it so much :)

Black tie June wedding
I wore this dress to a black tie wedding over the summer. It fit great and I felt beautiful. The inside liner was visibly worn in, but you couldn't see anything once the dress was on. The inside bodice of the dress is nicely structured so I didn't have to keep hiking it up throughout the night. Highly recommend!

It stretches and the color goes with my skin
If u have and and hour glass shape like me this is perfect for u and it hides ur fluff (pouch). This dress stretches a little ... Remember if ur 5'1 like me get Pettie a regular size will b too long. I love e this dress so much I rented it twice in two weeks of both events I had in month.

Lovely color but fit was not good for me and fabric felt coarse.
I was excited about this dress, as it was a vibrant holiday color and I thought would be perfect for my event. However, it just didn't work at all. The dress was too small to even zip up and the bodice also seemed lopsided; it was very strange. I also didn't care for the feel of the fabric; it felt very coarse and heavy. That being said, if the fit had worked, I would have worn it. Unfortunately, the backup larger size of this dress was not available, which I learned about a few days prior to the event . I will say that customer service was very good about contacting me and offering some flexible alternatives so that I would be sure to have a dress that worked. In the end I asked them to send me as a backup, a dress I had rented previously and knew I liked. So we had a lovely evening and I was happy with the dress I wore but sorry this lovely red one didn't work.

Dress fit well and customer service was AMAZING
Wow. RTR is amazing in regards to their customer service. I rented this dress but didn't initially love it. So I called the customer service line and they overnight shipped three other dresses just for the price of shipping. Ended up wearing the original one but I was so impressed w their service. Great condition. Rented the necklace also. Length was perfect.

This column evening gown fit like a glove and made me feel so elegant. I wore it with a fur wrap around my shoulders as the evening was frigid. Loved the dress and could dance and dine easily in it. The long length was perfect with my 4" heels.

I felt absolutely gorgeous in this dress! It is breathtaking!
It runs a little long. I'm 5'4" and wore 5 inch heels and I would have stepped on it if I had stepped back at all. Overall the fit was perfect and no need for a bra. The boning holds everything in place! :) Definitely my favorite dress rented from RTR!

Christmas in red!
Overall, loved the final look! Wore this to my boyfriend's work Christmas party. I am 5"10 and have broad shoulders and a more broad rib cage, and usually wear a 36D. After reading reviews, I ordered a 12 (12L was not available) and a 14L. The 12 fit well, I would probably have been better suited for the 12L. I was not able to wear a bra (wouldn't fit) but I didn't need one. Overall very happy with the dress and happy with the choker pearls I ordered to go with it.
