All eyes were on me!
I wore this for my senior prom, and in a sea of huge rhinestones and shimmer, I really felt like I stood out in a bold and classic red gown. I got a ton of compliments all night, and the dress was comfortable enough to dance in despite my large bust. This dress made me feel SO special, I wish I had more occasions to wear it!

The color and shape of the dress is drop dead gorgeous! This dress is bound to flatter every figure.
The zipper was a little tough to zip up past the waist. That is where the plastic dress boning started. I couldn't wear a bra with this dress because of that, but it held me in just fine. All in all the dress was fantastic and was a huge hit. Everyone said red was my new color!

I received so many compliments about the color and the dress. Tad small but overall great fit!
The dress was amazing. The color was spot on as it is seen on the picture. The length was perfect except when you tried to pick up it, it made it difficult to walk with out stepping on it. The zipper was probably the only con to this. It was so difficult to zip up, not because of it, I think it was just worn so much. Overall this dress was amazing and I felt beautiful in it. I received so many compliments and it was very much worth the rental. Highly recommend.

Great dress overall. Wore it to a black tie wedding.
Runs very small order a few sizes up!! The top is kind of heavy because of all the material but overall wasn't too much of a problem with a good strapless bra. Will need a good steaming before you wear it.

Rented for a formal wedding, got compliments all night and danced the night away!
I ordered the Encore Gown in. 18WR but the 20WR wasn't available so this was recommended. DH liked this one best, so this was the one! I was hesitant because with a 36G bust I was afraid I would dance out of the dress!. NO worries, the dress stayed put. The color is great, closer to the lighter photo. I loved dancing the night away, the dress spins so freely and the top stayed put! Rented the ruby red drop earrings and they matched perfectly.

It was nice to dress up as I do not do it often. I felt very pretty!
The fit was to size or one size larger would be best. I used a large necklace to help badazzeled the dress. The bones in the dress were poking out so it was a bit uncomfortable to wear. I contacted rent the runway and they were great in accommodating me!! I will definitely rent from them again!

Loved being the girl in red at Prom!
This dress was gorgeous, but warning it runs very small. I normally wear a 16, but it was a squeeze to zip up the 18. The length was wonderful, and I never had to tug at the bust to keep it from falling. This dress would have been absolutely perfect, if it had just been true to size.

This was an alternate that was sent because my alternate wasn't available.
It fit a little small just under the chest where the wide band is. It fit everywhere else but was just too tight at that point.

Stylist Review!
This is a great style for a black tie event! There is a lot of room in the bust, so this style is perfect for bustier ladies. The waist is very tight, however, so I highly suggest sizing up for a backup. The length was perfect for me in 3" heels. I felt very beautiful in this style. The fit is also very similar to the Faye Chiffon Gown. I would refer to those styling notes, as well, if more information is needed!

Unfortunately the dress was too large as I had lost more weight than anticipated. The gown was gorgeous and perfect in every way. RTR was great with the fit guarantee - followed return instructions and received credit for my next rental. I will definitely rent again!

This dress was so elegant and the color made me stand out!
The fit was tight in the ribcage so I had to size up by 2 sizes. The length was perfect and I was comfortable dancing the night away! It is rare to be able to do that in a strapless dress; I was so thrilled I didn't have to keep hiking it up!

Absolutely amazing dress BUT I am 6'1'' and the dress did not fit length wise. :( Had to return.
I would have worn the dress but, it was simply too short with heels for my height. The fit was great and it was very comfortable. Similar to other reviews, the zipper sticks a lot, so beware.

Gorgeous Dress!
My boyfriend was the one who picked the dress out. I'm a very solid size 14, but read the comments about it running a little small, so I ordered up to a 16. I chose the Long version because I'm 5'7" and I planned on wearing heels. So glad I did, it was the perfect length with heels on. I wish I had a little bit more room in the bust, but it wasn't terrible. I'm a 40DD and had amazing cleavage! The only negative comment I have is about the boning in the bodice. Depending on my sitting angle, it would stab me in the ribs. It was bad while driving in my car. Other than that, it was beautiful. I received compliments on the dress the entire evening.

Amazing dress for a Vegas wedding!
Beautiful dress! I rented it from the store in the Cosmopolitan for my wedding day. I tried on many dresses but the red color of this is gorgeous! Cons: It was very hard to zipper where the fabric is banded - I had 2 people helping me. Also, it was very long even though I had the regular length.

The color is absolutely vibrant, perfect for a military ball.
I'm normally a size 18, this dress DOES run small. The zipper also has a tendency to stick in the middle, so I couldn't zip or unzip it alone. I'm 5'6, and the dress barely dragged the floor in flats (switched to flats during night), but was perfect for a 3 inch heel.

I received tons of compliments. The dress made me look and feel like a goddess. i loved it!!!
the fit was true to size. however, the bust was not as fitted as the waist. it wasn't too bad. A con was that it is a little heavy because of the material underneath. It did not stop me from dancing.

Several compliments!
I normally wear an 18 so I ordered the 18 and the 20. Afterwards I read the stylist notes saying to size up and then size up again for your second dress. I was able to get in the 20 and it looked great, but I would've been WAY more comfortable in the 22

Beautiful dress, horrible zipper
I absolutely love this dress once I have it on. I just can't believe that an $800 dress has the worst zipper ever made. It sticks even when the dress is on the hanger. However, that doesn't take away from the fact that this is a beautiful dress. I had rented the pink version for a different event so I knew what I was getting myself in to when I rented this one. The dress is super comfortable and the top stays put nicely.

I'd never been to a formal before! This dress made it memorable!
I was glad I ordered TWO sizes, the size I THOUGHT I wore, I didn't so I highly recommend taking advantage of that option just to ease your nerves. It was chilly so I added a scarf. But I loved the dress! It was elegant and very flattering!

beauty of the dress trumped by the quality
the look of the dress was fantastic but the crappy zippers on both gowns left me disappointed. on the dress which was my size the zipper wouldn't budge at all. had to go the size up which was big on me and the zipper was a struggle as well. delivery of the gowns late on a Friday for an event on a Saturday left me with no options.

My outfit was the best part. I was workin' everything, even the wind.
The zipper kept snagging on itself when being zipped and unzipped. That was the biggest problem. It may look a little small because my bust is out but it wasn't. I just got too much in the front to handle, 40D.

O.M.F.G!!!!! You look like a MOVIE STAR!!! -quote from a friend when she saw me
I ordered this dress for a work black tie dinner event. I am usually a 14 in most dresses but read that the suggested second size be a size larger. I emailed RTR about being able to order the 14 and also get the 16 as a back up size (as that is not an option in the website). The staff was quick to respond and really awesome to accommodate my request. And I'm thankful they did because the 14 fit but was snug around my waist. There would have been no room for my fancy dinner... I ordered the long because I wore 5 inch heels and the dress hit at a perfect length. It was difficult to walk up and down stairs because the dress is very flowy and long, just make sure you gather it all up so you don't step on it and trip. It feels like your a princess when you're wearing this dress! I wish I could keep it.

Gala for my first film festival in which a film I directed was chosen.
The theme was 1920's and this dress was pure elegance with the right hair and accessories. I dont dress often and didnt want to buy a dress, RTR was the perfect solution. This dress wowed others and even myself. I have never felt so dead on! I am a normal size 16 but the 18L was a perfect fit and length as I am 5'9. I wore a 3 inch heel and was the perfect length.

Zipper was hard to get up half way through the dress due to a change in fabric.
