Festive color!

The dress is true to size and comfortable. It's a little bit loose on top, but not too noticeable. The neckline is flattering. The color is a beautiful, deep red and perfect for holiday parties. The skirt is fun and flowy. Overall I would definitely rent again!

Gorgeous color

The red color was perfect for the holiday party I attended. I typically don't find strapless styles flattering or comfortable to wear, but the strap detail balances out the top of the dress and has some hidden adjustable straps to keep everything in place.

I received so many compliments!

This dress wasn't my first pick but I'm glad that I gave it a chance. It definitely stood out against everyone else's black cocktail dresses. This dress was fun, easy to move in and very comfortable. I am between a 10 and a 12 but I decided to wear the 12 because it had more room in the top. The 10 sucked everything in and I looked flat chested. I would highly recommend!!

This dress was great for wedding.

I'm very petite and the fit was perfect. It was just a little longer on me than its probably meant to be, just below my knee. I though it looked very classy at that length once I had my heels on.

Super elegant, and easy dress.

Ended up going sans bra without issue due to the boning. Very flattering if you have hips. Everyone was complementing me all night.

Great color and loved twirling in it!

This dress was great! Beautiful red color. Only negative is that the straps did not fit exactly tight. There Are little bra straps under but they don't really do much. I just pulled the straps towards my shoulders. Great dancing in- twirled the night away!

Classic, Effortless Style

This dress is an instant classic! It's visually striking and extremely comfortable. I usually wear a 12 or 14 depending on the dress and was a little nervous as the largest size for this dress was a 12. It fit beautifully, though, and also has adjustable straps to ensure that the top fits just right! I would definitely rent again!

Flowy and fun!

Got a size bigger due to issues with my normal size. It was flowy so it worked our okay just loose on top. There are straps to tighten it further under the normal straps! Loved dancing in it and got a ton of compliments :)

Color is amazing! A standout dress...

Wore this dress for a wedding and I was thrilled with it. The fit is great and even with a larger chest you don't need a bra because the top is very structured so the boning keeps everything where it should be. The only problem I had was that after a little while of sitting, the back where the zipper was would bunch up. Overall I would definitely rent again. This dress looked great and I felt great in it.

The color of this dress is so striking! I felt like I was floating as I twirled on the dance floor!!

The fit was true to size. I was worried about my larger chest not fitting well after reading reviews, so I ordered a size up also, just in case. Ended up wearing a 10, which is my normal size in everyday clothes. The boning in the top provides beautiful structure contrasting the skirt that floats away from body. Super flattering and comfortable dress. I was sad to send it back!!

The straps were adjustable, which was great except then they bunched up.

This dress was very pretty on. It was perfect for an evening wedding. I liked the material and it was in great condition. It was unfortunate that the straps had so many issues.

Beautiful & comfortable dress

I received nonstop compliments on this dress. Great for dancing. Overall the fit is true to size, however the straps ran large & were loose in the back. Regardless, I loved it & wish I owned it.

Oh how I wanted to wear this!!!

This was so cool! The skirt hung straight down but could spin like crazy! I did not end up wearing it since it felt a little too flashy for my boss's sons wedding... Would rent again though for something else where I will be spinning!!!

I always wear black so this was something very different for me and I loved it!

The straps are loose like I read in other reviews, which was annoying so I wore my hair down. It might not bother other people but I'm a perfectionist like that. For taller people with taller torsos they might not have a problem. I'm only 5"0! The length was longer than for the average person but paired with heels I thought it was really elegant and classy. The chest was a bit tight and I'm only a small B. In general the dress was gorgeous and I would recommend it.

Made for Twirling

I loooooved this dress. I wore the 8 because the straps on the 10 were too big, so take that into consideration when choosing your sizes. They're adjustable, but not much. The color of this dress is really a bright red, so if you're shy, this dress might not be for you!

Felt like dancing!

I rented this dress for a valentines day dinner party and loved it! It is well constructed on top, and I agree with other commenters that you don't need to wear a bra. If you are a little small on top, you still might want to just for the extra padding. On size, I usually wear a 2, but ordered the 0 given other comments about it running a little large. I found the 0 comfortable, and appreciated the slightly tighter fit up top. The red color is lovely, not too bright or garish in any way, but you will stand out. The skirt with the chiffon overlay sways beautifully when you walk -- and I wanted to wear it dancing to twirl in it! I plan to rent it again for a dance party so I can really take it out for a spin!

For the small chested only

I am, by no means, well endowed in the chest, but this dress made me feel I was (unfortunately in a bad way). The fabric and color are so gorgeous it was sad not to be able to wear the dress. I could zip the 6, but even without a bra, my skin and that little bit of fat under the armpits that we all have spilled over the top. Same in the back. I left it on for a few minutes to determine if I could make any improvements/make it work somehow, and I was in pain by the time I took it off from how tight it was, so I decided there was no way I could wear it. I think unfortunately, going up a size would've been too large in the waist, so it seems that it's simply intended for those who have A's or (maybe) B's.

This was actually my back up dress, but when the original dress didn't look quite right, I was happy to have this as a backup. I sized down on this dress but it fit beautifully. The color is gorgeous and I received compliments all night.

Fits all shapes. True to size.

I am normally a size 2 but can fit a 0 depending on the style. This was a perfect 2. Great fit. Really comfortable and safe for many body shapes. It is structured where you need it but room to feel comfortable. I am straight and narrow + athletic shape... My sister tried on the same dress and she is very curvy... also a size 2. It fit us both beautifully. It has a built in structure that could work as a bra. I wore a strapless bra as well- gravity all of a sudden decided to kick in - I only needed the bra for padding and lift. The dress is safe for not wearing a bra. These photos are not the best but the only photos of the whole dress. Enjoy

Gorgeous dress perfect for the holidays

I rented this dress in a last minute "none of the other dresses are available" moment but ended up loving it. The red color is gorgeous and I loved the way that the skirt flows as you move. The top is flattering but would be hard to fit on people with actual boobs; it's tight, and any fat your have (boob, armpit, etc) will probably "ooze" through the triangle cut-outs. I was a little bit self-conscious about this throughout the night even though I'm really small on top. I typically wear a 4 and wore a 4 in this. It was a tiny bit tight but the 6 would've been too big. Great with your hair pulled back and sparkly earrings.

This dress was really beautiful and appropriate for a corporate holiday party. It fit like a glove and the vibrant color is definitely a stand out. It was also very comfortable. I highly recommend this one!

Fun for a wedding - slightly fussy fit.

This dress was imperfect, but still fun. I wore the 6, but wish I could have worn the 4. Unfortunately, the 4 arrived with a faint, but visible stain on the front. The red color is gorgeous, but note: this particular cut photographs much better straight on than from the side (shows off the neckline instead of hiding it)! Also, the straps "adjust" ...but don't adjust; if you tighten them the neckline fabric gaps and looks silly. I do recommend the dress overall, but that size 4 needs to be taken out of the rotation, RTR!

Eye catching!

I absolutely loved this dress. I got a size 2 and a 4- I ended up wearing the 2 although it was tight around the chest. You do not have to wear a bra as there is a mini corset inside the chest area. The 4 made me look bigger than I am, so I opted for a bit of constriction. I rented this dress for a Valentine's Day 'Sweetheart Soirée' at a private club in NYC. It was perfect for the occasion - great for dancing and very eye catching. I paired with Simple 100 black patent Loubs and gold jewelry.

This dress is beautiful and was in great condition. Would buy it at the store.

Fit was true to size (am familiar with BCGB brand so have a good idea of their fit on my 5.4 / athletic frame. I am small chested and the dress did make me look a bit flat.... but it still looked pretty good.

Loved this dress so much!

Very cool top part to this dress and the bottom half is so comfortable (especially with a baby bump). I was very happy to be cinched in tightly up top - I didn't need to wear a bra but you could if you needed. The bottom half is lightweight and pretty - perfect for a rehearsal dinner. Loved the look of the straps, too.

The perfect dress for an upscale dinner/ cocktail party!!

My first time using RTR was wonderful! I have been teetering between a 10 and a 12 for a few months now (long Boston winter!), so I decided to order the Dionne dress in a 12 to be safe with the 10 as a back up. Two days before my best friend's fancy rehearsal dinner I got an email from RTR stating the 12 was damaged so they were sending the 10 and a different dress in a size 12. THANK GOD the 10 fit because I am totally in love with this dress and the alternate they sent wasn't really my style. The Dionne dress literally fit perfectly, and held the girls in place so I didn't need a bra. My busty ladies out there will understand how amazing this is - doesn't happen often. The red is vibrant, it's fun to twirl in, and the cut flattering on many different body types in my opinion!! I was sad to see it go, and will not hesitate to rent again! Thanks RTR!!

Striking red color, lovely neckline, flattering pleats, flawy skirt.

Love the color and the neckline, and also the swoosh of the skirt and the gently flowiness of the chiffon fabric. The straps were a little long on me but they have an inner strap that's adjustable so they didn't fall down. The bodice has boning in it that gives a nice shape and structure on top, but might get uncomfortable after awhile. I very much enjoyed wearing this dress and in fact am buying a (more used) version from the RTR warehouse that i hope fits as well as the new one I rented.

As classy as classy gets.

The dress is beautiful! The neckline is great because you don't need a necklace. That saved me a lot of time and money. With classic black pumps, you just can't go wrong with this dress. I gave 4 stars however because there was a rip in the neckline, which I was able to hide by wearing my hair down. I will say that RTR offered me another style, but I was afraid I wouldn't get it in time. I appreciated their help - I just wish their dresses were inspected better before they are shipped.

I had the most beautiful bridesmaids!

Ordered this dress for each of my 3 bridesmaids. The dresses were very flattering for all of their different body types and skin tones. The dresses were true to size but also very forgiving for all the different body types from petite banana, busty hourglass and athletic swimmer. The dress is def a breezy summer dress though. It was about 70 degrees and my ladies were very cold. It was an appropriate length for a church wedding but easy to move and dance in. These dresses were worn with strappy gray heels for our red and gray themed wedding. Its a very simple dress with a lot of style. My husband and I are very satisfied with this RTR experience and would recommend other brides and grooms if they are looking for budget friendly options for this bridesmaids!

A Dress for Twirling

The dress fit very well and was a beautiful color! I have a large bust so I was glad a strapless bra was able to fit underneath the thick top fabric. The length was perfect and was a great dress to dance in. There are adjustable straps for the top however they do not shorten the larger red straps, so they are kind of pointless. Overall, a very fun dress!
