Lady in Red.

So I was a bit nervous to wear a fitting dress giving that I'm 3 months postpartum but let me tell you ! This made me feel sexy and elegant at the same time ! The dress was easy to wear, straps could be a little long for some. This is a 8r and the length was perfect for me. Overall experience was amazing! Thank you RTR!

Beautiful red dress!

This dress was perfect for the ball I attended! Beautiful color, the slit helped show off some leg, and the length was perfect for a tall girl like me....definitely recommend!

The color

The length was did not hit the floor for me without heels, so once I put heels on it was very short. Also, the slit was very high, so I had to safety pin it together so I was not exposed.

Compliments all night!

Loved this dress!! A little hard to sit in, but overall I would rent it again and again (and again). Fits true to size, if just slightly big. Incredibly comfortable, a stand out dress in any occasion.

what size heels did you need to wear with this dress? I'm a baby and can't do more than a couple inches

Office Christmas Party Perfection

Xmas party theme was old Hollywood glam, and this dress was absolutely perfect! Such a knockout! It's sexy, but not too sexy, and it skims all the right places. I thought it ran just a bit big. I normally wear a 10 and would have liked to try the 8, but it wasn't noticeable. Highly recommend it!

Comfortable and Complementing!!

I originally planned to rent a different dress for my fiancé's Marine Corp ball, but was notified a week before my event that the dress was no longer available so this was my second choice. With that being said, I think it was meant to be because I absolutely LOVED this gown!! So flattering and COMFORTABLE! I wore spanks just because the slit was a little high and I knew I'd be active and dancing throughout the night, but other wise no bra - so it's very supportive! Wish I could've kept it, and will definitely be renting from RTR again! Awesome customer service.

Went to the 15th St store because it was last minuteCould have done without the L, but made it work.

Elastic at back of chest made it perfect. Probably could have gone down a size.

Va Va Voom!!

RTR didn't have my size (8L) available so I requested the (6L). Over all the dress fit well considering I have a large bust line. I was excited about the coverage. The waistline fit my figure perfectly, however, since it was a tad too small the hip area spread the slit open very high (scandalous high). The long length was good with heels (I'm 5'9"). At the end of the day it was a gorgeous dress and I received so many compliments. I definitely stood out in the crowd. I think it's a good dress for a full hourglass figure.

The slit is EVERYTHING!!

I loved renting this dress! The waistline is very flattering and the amazing slit makes the dress! I received a lot of compliments and felt beautiful all night long. Just one tip, when sitting down have a shawl to cover legs because the slit does show a lot of thigh.

Very flattering, but the slit is high

Something about the design of this dress just made it very flattering. I tried it on when I was feeling fat and bloated and it still looked good (not the case with most dresses!). For that reason, I recommend it. But I would never buy a dress like this because the slit is HIGH. It made me insecure walking and sitting. I had to hold it most of the night, which worked but I can only deal with that once.

Sexy but big in all the wrong places.

The 2L fit nicely up top but the hip / butt area was way too big. I wore the backup dress.

Sweetheart Gala

This dress was so flattering! I am 5'10" and usually wear a size 10, so I went with it.... and it was perfect! The wrap look across the stomach area allowed for no stress in that area and the slit was amazing! I would highly recommend!!

Perfect color

I felt so good in this dress. The fit was perfect and the length was not too long. I'm only 5ft and with heels there weren't any problems. The slit was a lot higher than I expected but still beautiful. Got so many compliments!

Felt sexy but slit was too high

I felt beyond sexy wearing this dress when I first tried it on, however sitting down the slit went up realllllly high. It made me slightly uncomfortable and I wore my husband's suit jacket when sitting down.

Felt like a million bucks!

I knew the second I put it on that this was the one. The fabric is forgiving and comfortable, and fit perfectly! I felt like a million bucks and got complements all night long. Also danced for hours with lots of easy movement. No bra needed, either. Only caution is how high the slit goes when you sit down. I was surprised how careful I had to be to cover up with my legs crossed.

Beaut dress and fit!

This dress is gorgeous in real life! The red is stunning and it fits great-- very comfortable. I typically wear a 6 but my waist and bust align more with a size 4. This dress is fitted up top but loose through the hips (even if you have bigger hips like me). I ended up wearing the 4! I got a lot of compliments. But the slit can be very high, especially as you walk. The ruching along the stomach is also extremely flattering. I loved this dress so much!

Flattering but a little impractical

When I first tried this dress on I was in love with it, but I made the mistake of not walking around before I decided to wear it. The slit was really high when I walked and impossible to sit in without feeling completely exposed. The straps were long and I was unable to pin them, so I was pulling it up all night to cover myself. The dress did look great if I was just standing but overall I wouldn't order this again. The material didn't feel very formal either. The dress was a little long but manageable. I'm 5'2" and wore 3 inch heels.

Great prom dress!

I'm usually a size 2, but went for the size 4 because I thought the slit would run too high on the smaller one. The straps are a bit long, even for someone with a bigger bust. Don't size up, it's true to size. Size down, if anything.

Comfortable & glamorous!

This is by far my favorite dress to date! I loved the red with my coloring, the fit was very flattering & I felt comfortable in it the whole time! I chose to wear Spanx underneath, but I don't think it is needed.

Great option for a black tie event. Comfortable to wear. Has a large slit - so be sure you wear the correct size. I typically wear a 4/6 but I sized up since I am breastfeeding. Worked well for me!

Beautiful and flattering

One of my RTR favorites. So glad I read the reviews on this- I am normally a 10R or 8R, and rented the 6R and 8R. The 6R was the right fit, 8R was way too big! The 6 was still a little loose up top, but otherwise was fitted in all the right spots, and was unbelievably flattering. I do not normally wear fitted dresses like this, but this one was so comfortable and a beautiful fit. Cons: Definitely a high slit, straps and chest were really loose and too big. However, the slits really weren't too much of an issue once i figures out how to sit down without causing a scene, and I was able to use fashion tape for the chest and straps

Simple yet sexy

Fit great, comfortable, good material, got compliments all night long! Only drawback were straps were a little long, my bra made some appearances throughout the night and the girls felt a little less supported than I would have liked, wish they were an inch or so shorter. Overall very flattering and I was very happy with the dress! Perfect for summer beach wedding.

Fun dress!

I wore this dress to a formal wedding. It was comfortable and fun. I thought it ran a bit big, I wore the 2 (I tend to wear a 4) and could have probably worn the 0. I got the long but didn't need it - the bottom dragged on the ground which didn't end up being a big deal (I'm 5'7" and wore ~2" heels). Overall a fun dress that I would recommend renting!

Flattering and sexy but HIGH slit!

I personally loved this dress and felt so good in it, but it has a HIGH slit and I'm only 5'3. Granted I paired it with Louboutin's... but still. I had to be very cautious when sitting and walking. Black halo is a brand I've found thru RTR that fits me like a glove. Overall it's flattering and a stand out piece. I would rent again and maybe try to pin it so the slit didn't come up so high.

Wow!

The dress is perfect for women with full breast. It hugs your curves in all the right ways. I felt super sexy with it. The only con is the slit goes a bit higher than I expected. The dress also runs a tad large but not too much. Absolutely loved it. If I could I would buy it
