A true show stopper! Felt like a celebrity with all the compliments I received!

The quality and color of this dress speaks high end! The dress was so comfortable even after dancing the night away. I loved the way it fit and moved and know you will too! Thank You RTR!

Not a fan

This was my backup dress out of three, and it ended up being as I thought in a bad way. It doesn't have a shape to it at all, which is necessary when you have an hourglass figure (otherwise I tend to look like round). Also it looks like it was altered on the zipper, so it bunched up on my waist. The only pro was that the length was good because I'm short. I had ordered the 0P.

Was my first choice but ran sooo big I couldn't wear. Very pretty. Go at least a size down.

Ran HUGE. So much extra material in stomach and back. Go down at least on size. Beautiful dress just too big.

Stunning

It runs a tad bit large. Just a beautiful look that does not show a lot of imperfections. the perfect amount of flair. Dress hit just right above the floor with 3" heels. Sad that I ended up sick for my event

Gorgeous but fit weird

So disappointed in this dress fit. So pretty. Loved the shoulder strap and color. The dress fit very big through the waist. Made me look a size bigger than I am. Not for a curvy body.

Gorgeous but needed a longer length

This dress is AMAZING. The fabric is really thick and an amazing quality. I decided to go with my other dress because I needed this dress in a long instead of regular - i'm 5'8" and without heels the regular hit right above my feet. I usually wear an 8 but the 6 in this dress fit like a glove.

This dress was top notch and stood out!

Lenth was perfect and wasnt too tight on around the bust. Thick enough so i didnt use shape wear.

Didnt wear, too loose

Looks amazing online, for hourglass body type, it fit loose in the mid section as I suspected in pictures I saw online, I had hoped it would fit otherwise. Thankful I chose a back up dress as well which worked out better instead.

Gorgeous color and very comfortable

Ordered the 10R and 8P. I am 36DD, so the 8P was too tight in the bust. I was also surprised at the length of the 8P. I'm 5'1 and usually even Petite sizes are too long. This one was actually too short! It hit at my ankles. The 10R was a little big in the bust, but I did not find myself having to yank it up all night. The zipper area did have some bunching of the fabric, but it did not look bad. I would definitely recommend this dress if you are curvy and/or busty. Very pretty and flattering!

I got so many compliments for this dress! It is stunning. If anything runs a little short.

Overall fit perfect, I am 5'10" and it wasn't to the floor but it was ok. I guess I should have gotten long. It is a beautiful dress. This was actually my second pick and I only got one size for it so it definitely runs true to size!

Perfect for the Christmas Ball - I got loads of complements

Very comfortable - easy to walk/dance in and nice opaque fabric. Length was fine with low heels. I'm a 34B and the 6R was quite loose around the bust and back; the ruffled shoulder helped camouflage it. In any case, this is a STUNNING gown so other people aren't likely to notice a little extra fabric in the back ;-)

Lovely color and neck fluff

This a lovely red dress with what i made into a stand up collar off the shoulder. My true regrets with this dress was that it wasnt very form fitting around the waist and it didnt come in long.

Beautiful dress -- perfect for Marine Corps Ball

This dress was more beautiful in person and it was perfect for the Marine Corps Ball! The shade of red was perfect with my boyfriend's dress blues and the one shoulder created elegance! I loved this and enjoyed my first experience with RTR and will definitely be renting again!

Perfect for a Marine Corps ball in NYC!

This dress was stunning and I received compliments all night! As a shorter 5'6" with an athletic body, usually form-hugging dresses do not do the trick for me. This dress hugged all of the right curves, but left just enough room for me to be able to move comfortably. It was the perfect length and I wore it with a two inch heel. I think I make have been even to make the 4P work, as there was enough room in the mid-section. Overall, I loved this dress and would rent it again in a heartbeat!

Many compliments and comfortable

Rented this for a friends black tie wedding. Got many compliments from fellow guests and strangers on the street. Rented the 2r and the 6r because 4r was not available. 2r fit ok through the body but was tight in the arm. The 6r was too loose all over. But the dress was still comfortable and easy to dance in. Had great movement to it. Was warm enough for a late fall day but may be a bit to heavy for a warmer season.

Beautiful for the occasion!

I wore this dress for a Marine Corps ball. It runs a little large, but I chose it over the 10 due to length and a little dancing room. The inside liner of this dress had been torn, perhaps by a precious user. I was still able to smooth out the dress and make it work. It looked perfect!

This is a nice well made dress. It runs pretty big especially in the stomach. Probably not the best for hourglass shape.

was stunning. Loved the look and feel. Would wear it again

Highlight- was a huge attention grabber. Most people wore dark colors, this stood out completely Pro- comfortable, easy to get around. perfect length Con- the zipper was a bit annoying as was the hook.

Very pretty dress, great color! Runs large.

I did not wear this dress as I liked the other one I rented better. This dress is great looking, but runs quite large around the middle and hips. It would probably fit best on someone with curves.

This dress made me feel wonderful. 😊

I loved this dress. It was a perfect match to go with my spouses dress blues. It was comfortable and awesome. I ordered a 10 and 12 and they both fit but with my height I went with the 12 cause it give me a little more length. I got so many compliments.

This dress was a showstopper! I got nonstop compliments and felt like a movie star in it. The heavy fabric made it sit really well when worn, but somehow, it wasn't too, too hot either.

Lady In Red

I absolutely love this dress and received a ton of compliments. It does run a little bit big and it was long for me. I should have gone down another size. I wish it had a hand loop to make it easier to hold up for walking and dancing. I did wear tall wedges but even then it was long. Advice for anyone getting this dress, try it on right away. This was the 3rd dress of this style that I received, with one being way too big and the other having a really weird gather at the zipper. Almost like it was washed wrong and the zipper shrunk but the dress didn't. This one also had a little bit of a weird gather at the zipper but it wasn't too bad so I wore it anyway. Overall though, it was absolutely amazing!

Zipper damaged/wonky

I think the picture speaks for itself. I didn't end up wearing this dress because the zipper was jacked up. It zipped up all the way but had some sort of permeant bend in it. Also this dress runs a bit big. Not too much but I could have maybe gone with a 0P instead of 2P (typically a 2P).

My husbands first Emmy nominations and I couldn't have felt and looked better! This dress is PERFECT

This dress was every women's dream come true. I couldn't pass by someone without them saying "I LOVE YOUR DRESS!" I wore this to the Mid American Emmy's - my husband was nominated... twice :) This hugged my curves beautifully, fits true to size, slimmed me down, wasn't too tight on my hips (and I have very very wide hips), didn't have to wear a special bra, didn't have to wear a shaper, no tape required, length was PERFECT (I'm 5'4") with just a little train in the back. I can't say enough good things about this dress. PROBLEM; I WANT TO KEEP IT!! Don't think about it, rent it. You won't be sorry.
