RTR has exceptional customer service! I just wish this dress came in a petite.
The fit was nice and comfortable. The dress is long but I wore really high heels so I made it work. I wish the dress came in a petite. The color is beautiful. It really sets you a part in a room. Size up if you have a large bust.

Amazing, so few women wear red during holidays! This striking red dress was festive & stood out!
The length is just a tad bit long for dancing. I had to hold up the hem to avoid getting stepped on.

The draping around the waist is very weird and unflattering. Made my thing waist and full hips all blend together. Did not wear

Dresses arrived on time!
Did a quick wardrobe change from the Badgley Mischka Twist it Out gown into this while hosting an awards show. Loved it! Fit is true to size, but does run long. I'm always concerned that strapless dresses are going to be way too loose in the chest but that wasn't the case. The only weird thing was that the fabric around the waist gets bunched if you're not consistently straightening it.

Chic dress, sexy color.
This dress is ideal for someone with a B cup, was a little big at top for my A frame but it still looked fine. I'm 5'10 and without heels the 4L barely touched the floor so it was a bit short in 3 inch heels. As you can see the bunchiness of the design at the waist made my hips look bigger than they are, keep that in mind if you're pear shaped. It's easy to wear and chic but not overly glamorous so you'll definitely need to accessorize.

Not good for thicker waists
I'm 5'8 and 180 pounds. Just had a baby a few months ago so still carrying some post-baby weight in the middle. The construction of the dress didn't flatter me at all. The ruching made my waist look much wider than I am. I couldn't get the 10 to zip up the back although it fit well elsewhere. I wouldn't have worn even if I'd gone up a size or two because of how unflattering it was. Thankfully, the rental experience was amazing and customer service was able to overnight a great dress in time for my event.

Dress was elegant and chic - perfect for a formal event!
I didn't actually wear this dress to the event due to some issues with the dress itself/how it was shipped to me and it was too too short of notice to get them to overnight me a new one but I did of course put the dress on! It fit me Perfect. I have very small bust so it felt big there even in a 2R but I don't think you could tell from looking at me. The dress was true to size and absolutely gorgeous. I thought about a 0 due to the bust but it wouldn't of fit my body so the 2 war perfect.

Gorgeous dress, fits true to size but the fabric was so heavy I ended up going with a similar dress in green.

Unflattering on my curvy frame
Although this dress was gorgeous, I did not wear it because the style was pretty unflattering for my curvy frame. I don't have large hips, but I do have a large bust, so the drop waist gave the illusion that my lower half was large...which it's not...I swear.:)

Amazing color!
I ordered the 16 and the 14; and went with the 14 which was a little snug but allowed me to go braless. I have a fuller chest so i did spend a lot of time pulling up the top and making sure it didn't shift. It was a bit long, but I expected that from some of the other reviews. Overall though I liked the dress got a lot of compliments on it. I would recommend it especially if you have a smaller bust size.

Top was too big
The top didn't fit right. It was too big and the dress folded over so the lining showed. This was just back up so I only had one size. I might have worn the 8. Color was super pretty.

Sweeping Red!
I am normally between a 4 and a 6 and this size 6 was a little big. I would recommend sizing down to make sure this dress doesn't fall down as its strapless. the ruching on the waist is so gorgeous and I can imagine it being more slimming if I chose a smaller size. The red chiffon is a great color and super flowy!!! Definitely will rent again in the right size.

Beautiful color but the bust was too large
This was my backup dress fo a black tie event. I ordered a size 0, which is my usual size, but the bust was too large for me and the dress did not hold very well. Also note that the dress is quite heavy due to its many layers. That said, the color is stunning and the fabric is great - I probably would have worn it if it wasn't for the bust!

I had to order a new dress, but RTR was very helpful!
Never got to wear the dress. It was a stunning colour, but too big in the boob and waist area. It isn't fitted up top very well. Perfect length for me, but I couldn't keep it up. Very heartbreaking to send it back. Definitely runs large, wouldn't recommend if you're small up top at all. Stayed on the phone for an hour trying to find a replacement dress, but RTR pulled through and shipped me another one!

The color is stunning!!!
I was having a engagement photo shoot at the top of rock. The color undoubtedly was outstanding and shining like a star. But the size was running way tooooo big so that I looked puffy especially around the waist. I usually wear size 4. I still felt loose even I was wearing the size 2.

I wore this dress to my Junior prom. My friends and I all looked great on this unforgettable night!
I loved the look of this dress, but I am regretting getting a strapless dress for the second year in a row. If you are going somewhere where you want to dance and have a great time, then I would recommend not going with strapless, because you don't want to have to spend the whole night pulling up your dress like I had to. This dress was too big and too long. I had to use a padded bra and fashion tape to help keep the dress up, and I had to hold up the bottom of the dress as I walked. Overall the dress was beautiful, but hard to wear for skinnier people.

felt like a showstopper!
Beautiful flowy dress, but the diagonal work across the chest/stomach puffed out, making me look fatter from certain angles :( Runs large, so order a size down from what you normally wear. Also very long, so plan your footwear accordingly!

Beautiful but big!
This was the first rental of three that I made for a black tie charity event. I absolutely loved the color and the a-line cut of the dress. Although, I am busty, the top kept slipping down. I thought that fancy ruching would smooth out any imperfections, but it just drew unwanted attention to my midsection. Unless you were standing perfectly straight the ruching bunched together and made the dress look a bit sloppy. I'm short waisted and I think that this dress would fit and look better on someone with a longer torso. Definitely order a size down for your backup.

Great dress for my senior presentation!
I wore this dress for my senior drill team presentation and it was great! I had originally ordered a different dress, but it's delivery was delayed due to weather and they overnighted me this one. Even though it wasn't my first choice, it was lovely and really popped onstage. It was a little large and I would have had a hard time keeping it from falling if I had been wearing it all night. Other than that, it was great!

LOVE the color and how it made me feel so elegant!
Love this dress! The only reason I didnt give it a 5 star rating is because the bust was a little big so I was tugging at it all night. Other than that it was an amazing dress! Made me feel so elegant!

Too much fabric!
I ordered these dress as an additional back-up style and didn't wear it. There is just too much fabric! The way the fabric is sewn across my middle made the dress look very wide and matronly.

The dress was comfortable. I really felt pretty. The night was fun and I felt great. My sister too.
I normally wear a size 10 in pants so I ordered a 10 and a 12 just to be sure. I ended up wearing the 12R and it was pretty and comfortable all night.

The dress was gorgeous!!
The dress was a little long for me even with five inch heels! I had to order it for prom because the dress I had previously bought didn't arrive in time. RTR saved the day. The zipper gets snagged at the waist but you are still able to zip it up. Perfect for a girl with hips!

I accidentally ordered the wrong size for one of my dresses and they simply swapped it out for me.
The dress is a bright orangey red. It's long! I order it long because I'm 5'8 but even with 4in heels I had to constantly carry it. I was worried it would rip all night and people kept stepping on it while dancing. Other than that, I received many compliments and was deemed one of the best dressed at prom. It's very comfortable and you feel confident wearing it.

Fit super true to size except the length. I'm only 5'0 so it was pretty long even with 4 inch heels but it wasn't that noticeable. I highly recommend this dress!!! I wore it for prom

Very flattering lining!
The dress was surprisingly very flattering on! The rouching up top is flattering and runs long so it makes the wearer look like they have a longer waist. The dress was very pretty on! I would recommend it for anyone looking for a dress

Extra fabric makes this unflattering
I rented this for a charity prom themed event, but did not wear it. It was a back up dress. This dress has these pleats that just make you look larger. They hang on the side and just look awful. The red color is quite pretty, but that is about it.

This dress was not flattering at all. I have a thin waist and bigger hips....and looked pregnant in this dress. It wasn't something I would have picked out but RTR sent it bc my original was damaged. I immediately sent it back.

I wore this for the Dayton Art Institute's Art Ball. The dress was perfect & the color was amazing.
I am 5'6" and usually wear a 4 or 6. I wore the 4L for this event and it fit great and was the perfect length with my heels. It was a little loose at the top, but did not slip down.

The color of the dress is amazing! Fit perfectly for this summer wine country wedding!
Fit was pretty good, except the length was pretty long. I'm 5'3" and wore 4" heels and the dress was still about an inch too long. I had to pick it up a lot so I wouldn't trip. However, I got so many compliments on the dress! It was definitely a head turner!
