Stylist Notes

Exclusive to Rent the Runway! This oh-so-flattering siren red style from Bibhu Mohapatra is another example of his stunningly beautiful attention to detail. With a corset bodice and knee length skirt, this dress blends sexy with sophisticated for a perfect mix. Pair with a flirty necklace like the Kenneth Jay Lane's A List Necklace.

Size & Fit

This dress runs slightly small. We recommend going one size up for back-up size (see following fit notes for exceptions).

BUST: Works best for A to C cup sizes - built-in corset and bustier with cups runs small
WAIST: Very fitted - very fitted throughout bodice so women with a larger rib cage should size up
HIPS: Fitted - skirt runs very narrow at hips - size up one or two sizes for full hips
LENGTH: Knee length - (on a 5'5" model)

UNDERGARMENTS: Should be worn with a strapless bra or no bra because of the fitted bustier
FABRIC: Fabric has no stretch
GREAT FOR: Hourglass, Pear, Tall, Straight & Narrow body types
(Model's height is 5'10".)

Color is fabulous. Corset top is well constructed although there is a wire poking out that could take some repairing. The silk is pulling at the top of the zipper, which is to be expected from a dress of such high quality getting such regular wear. Overall this dress is a knockout, just too narrow in the ribcage for me!

I wore this dress to a wedding on NYE and it was perfect. I loved it, great for inside a church and then for a fun party. Would definitely rent this dress again.

Wore this to a rehearsal dinner and got tons of compliments! One of my friends even asked to borrow it. I ended up wearing the larger of the 2 sizes due to the corset top...otherwise fit perfectly.

I wire this for my husband's work event and could not get my size to zip. The "bigger" size was perfect- I recommend 1 or 2 sizes up.

Love this dress - fun color, and its flattering but demure. Wore it to a friend's wedding in April.
