Strapless and stayed put!

I've never felt comfortable wearing a strapless dress before with my larger chest. This one fit beautifully and stayed up, no tugging or pulling it up. I love the color, so many compliments! Definitely form fitting. My only concern was the little hanger ribbons peeking out, they're black. If I owned the dress I would have cut them off for sure. Good thing I was out with girlfriends that could keep an eye on that for me!

Runs a bit big and a bit long. Fabric is questionable.

I decided not to wear it. I'm between size 2-4, but this felt too big, and way too long. I'm 5' 3", and wearing 5" heels in the photos, and it was still too long, which is rare for me. Though it was big, it showed all cellulite or imperfections in the body. I really hoped it would have worked as i loved the silhouette and color.

I received a ton of compliments throughout the night!

I was a little nervous renting the dress as there were no reviews at the time. I had a baby 11 weeks ago and wanted something with a bit of stretch in it, but was still form fitting. 1. If you are 5'5" or taller, I definitely recommend ordering the dress in a long. 2. The material is a very thick stretchy material, but it does show every bump and imperfection. However, with the right undergarments like Spanx, I had no issues. 3. The dress was incredibly comfortable and did not require me to adjust it in anyway during the night. The material was also great in that it did not wrinkle or a bunch up. 4. I received tons of compliments throughout the night on my dress and I'm actually considering renting the dress again for another formal event next month!

Elegant statement dress

Great fit, good length (I wore 4" heels), quality material and no zipper issues! A lovely red color. Lots of compliments throughout the evening. Definitely recommend this dress for your next extra special occasion.

Gorgeous, Amazing, Breathtaking, Sexy!

Loved this dress, and would rent again. It fits perfectly - true to size. The length is perfect for taller girls. I'm 5'3" and was wearing 5 inch heels and the dress laid on the floor a little, but not so much that it looked sloppy. This dress is not for bustier girls because the top piece kept slipping and I had to adjust a few times, and I'm only a 32C. The dress has black strings - dress loops - and they peek out so be sure to tape them down. Very lightweight material and super easy to dance in.

Perfect sexy red dress!

The neckline on this dress is STUNNING! I wore it on an evening out with my husband, celebrating our anniversary. I was complimented more times than I could count throughout our evening. I felt like a rock star! Beautiful color, thick, stretchy fabric, that hugs all the right places. It might fit a touch small, but not much. I fluctuate between a 10 and a 12, and the 12 fit like a glove. The back on this dress is gorgeous, but definitely too low for a bra. I had to wear a NuBra to make it work. If you wear any shape wear, make sure it is seamless!

The gown fit just right and was a sophisticated glam I was going for!

The fit was very true to size. I am 5'8 so the long was only a tiny too long but looked great. I have a larger chest and this dress stayed up in and in place and also just hugged my curves in a great way. Perfect for a more conservative charity gala because it was not at all revealing but still sexy chic

Gorgeous! Amazing fit, flattering but long. Came New with tags.

I didn't get to wear this bc the wedding I was going to wasn't dressy enough for it but I will definitely keep this in mind for next time. It's amazing.

Bombshell!!

This dress is absolutely amazing. I felt like a princess all night. It's a show stopper for sure. The only issue I have is with the black hangers in the dress. They kept popping out, but definitely not a deal breaker.

Glamorous!

This dress is all you want it to be! Luxurious thick fabric that holds the structure of the cut. Typically I am a 6 sometimes a 4. The 4 fit but bagged in the stomach area. The 2 fit perfect. I would order at least one size down, size down 2 sizes for your back up. I am 5'4 and thought the length was great with a platform heel.

I loved the style and color of this dress! It is a scuba fabric and very form fitting. I probably should've gotten a long instead of regular but with shorter heels regular worked fine

FABULOUS dress for a formal event. Easily a "best dressed" winner!

A note on the fabric. It's neoprene, which means it's very soft, very stretchy, and VERY unforgiving. While I personally love the look of it, it does show EVERY curve, bump, and panty line. If you're looking for a dress that will hide those "trouble spots" this is not it. That said, with the right undergarments it's not an issue. Highly recommended spanx underwear for this. Also, I was surprised to find the smaller size fit better because of the cut and lay of the dress. With Black Halo I find it usually runs small. I wear a 6, but usually size up with this brand. This was the first time smaller was better. Overall, I ADORED this dress for a black tie optional event. I felt appropriate and glamorous and received a ton of compliments.

Stunner!

Pros / Unique, Stretchy, Comfortable Cons / Does show everything - shapewear is best to wear with it; Couldn't walk fast in the dress as it is a little limiting Overall // Would absolutely rent again!

Perfect gown for holiday photos!

I love this gown it's gorgeous and bold! However, it runs a little large if you ask me and you most certainly need to wear a body shaper under it as the material is a bit unforgiving. Overall it worked out though!

Non stop compliments!

Rented this for a Christmas party and it was perfect! I've never received that many compliments on a dress! I'm btwn 5' 7" and 5'8" and the 8L was prefect with heels. The fabric is super stretchy and definitely hugs the body. I'm a little bottom heavy so probably could have worn a 6 for my bust but needed the 8 for my hips. Only complaint was that the black hanger straps didn't stay tucked inside the dress well and had to keep readjusting to hide them. Otherwise, this was a winner! I would definitely recommend for a formal event that also need to be a bit conservative (this was a work event, so no cleavage :)

Great dress!

It was a little long but I had 3 inch heels so it touched right to the floor. Only negative thing about this dress is the hanging loops inside the dress they kept popping out of the dress. They were black so they stood out every time they came out of my dress it was noticeable. The dress is stretchy so it fits perfect. I got so many compliments on this!

Beautiful red glam!

I really liked this dress. It was fairly comfortable, but the fabric definitely highlights any trouble areas. I wore spanx to smooth things out a bit. Hubby said his heart skipped a beat when he saw me, and got many compliments from even random strangers.

The dress is perfect...the fabric is very forgiving- I had a baby some months ago and the dress covered my current flaws. I felt super confident with the dress and for many complements. I would rent it again.

Beautiful style and color! Stand out dress

Beautiful dress. Material is NOT FORGIVING! If you want to dance and be comfortable this probably isn't the dress. Also the hanger straps were a bit of an issue. They kept popping out! I did feel like it was a stunning stand out dress but probably try and go for more for comfort next time!

It was a bit long (I'm 5'4 and was wearing heels) but other than that it's a great dress that makes you feel like a knock out.

Getting to wear a gorgeous gown without buying it! So many compliments on this dress!

I'm typically a 4, I wore a 4R and it fit perfectly. I'm 5'8", 135lb, athletic build. I'm a 34B, wore a backless bra, no trouble zipping up. The length was perfect with 3.5 inch heels. The black hanger straps had been cut out, so I'm guessing RTR got all of the complaints and went ahead and cut them out...so you don't have to worry about them popping out or taping them down. Love this dress. So elegant, very comfortable. Sad to send it back!

Shiny wetsuit material

An important note that I think is hard to tell from photos: this is a stretchy, shiny, wetsuit type material. I didn't mind and still wore it anyway but I was picturing it with a more matte finish. It fits very snug as it's supposed to. The off the shoulder sleeve looks like it might restrict the arm for dancing but with the stretch, it was not a problem. It also runs long. I'm 5"10"" and I wore 2inch heels and it was still an appropriate length.
