Beautiful necklace and color. Quite tight at the waist.
I'm usually size 0/00 but I rented size 2 because they didnt have those sizes and the order reviews say it fit small. And it was a good idea. It was quite tight for me at the waist, even at size 2, and I never have this problem before since I have a pear/petite shape. Another reason is that I ate a lot too so...But I still recommend sizing up. The dress is so beautiful, the eye-catching color, the form-fitting shape, the draping neckline and draping at the waist. My husband loved it and he usually did not care about those things. I would love to rent it again. The material is also so smooth and comfortable.

Tiny waist
Previous reviewers were not kidding when they said the waist is very very small. It fit my bust and hips easily, but had I not been sick the morning of the wedding, breathing would have been very difficult. Also, the lining kept peeking out from below the dress, like it was cut longer than the dress, so I had to keep tugging. The color and fabric are beautiful and the design is great, but I was glad to return it.

Perfect for boyfriends birthday! The dress is stunning.
Tight in the waist, I recommend sizing up. But, it's a very flattering cut.

Went the the NYFW 2015 Christian Siriano show and this dress was great! Other than being tight, it was a perfect day to night look.

dress runs very small
This dress runs very small. I am 5'7'' and 115 pounds and usually wear a 0 or 2. I could not zip up the size 2. The size 4 was not available so I went with a different dress. The dress however, is very pretty.

Didn't wear it because it ran small, but I loved it!
I got this dress for a wedding, but it didn't fit. I am normally an 8, so I got an 8 in this dress. It was just a little too tight to wear. It was BEAUTIFUL though. I truly wish I had a 10 because I loved it. It was the perfect color shape and was so fun. Highly recommend if you can rent one size above your normal.

Gorgeous, classic dress.
This dress is so pretty and sophisticated. I rented it as my back up dress to try it on and see how it fit so that I could hopefully wear it for a future wedding this year. Reviews said it was small and they were not kidding! My waist/hips are usually where dresses tend to be looser on me and tight in the back/chest due to my former swimmer shoulders that never shrunk back to normal size. This dress was definitely small all around - especially in the waist. The size I tried was my typical size 4 (they didn't have the 6 available to size up). After trying it on however, I think two sizes up may be the best bet!

impossible fit and poorly pressed
The dress looks amazing in the picture, but is a really tough fit. I am a size 2-4 and i barely zipped in. On top of that, the dress arrived poorly pressed, making it look unflattering and cheap.

Difficult fit; slightly snug in the tush.
Not my favorite fit, which is surprising given the designer. The hem and lining did not lay smoothly and curled up to a point that it was noticeable. The drapping at the top is more loose than depicted in the picture. Pretty dress, but unfortunately the fit wasn't flattering on my frame.

So many complements on this dress!Gorgeous burnt orange/reddish color perfect for a cocktail event!
I really loved this dress! It did have a stain on the back and the hem was a little messed up as others reviewed. I taped it up and just wore it with the black stain... It just looked so good on! I through a belt on with it and really jazzed it up. Highly recommended- but size one or two dress sizes up! Ps, RTR did refund my money for this dress due to the stain on the back. Wonderful customer service!

Wonderful color and great style. Very flattering
I feel like this dress runs on the small side. I usually am a 2 or 4 and the 4 JUST fit. So if in doubt order size up. This dress did seem a bit worn. There was a small water stain- not noticeable but there. The dress had been fixed from a previous tear in the back seam- which may have led to the tight fit in the zipper. Overall though it was perfect for my work event - professional but fun. Got a lot of compliments. It was a great color to be on stage in.

I loved this dress. The color is vibrant and different from the black dress I always wear.
The lines of the dress are perfect. I got compliments all night. The only con is that the dress fit really tight at the waist.

Beautiful, but ...
I didn't end up wearing this dress, and forgot to snap a photo before taking it off after trying it on... Unfortunately, the hem on the bottom of the dress in the back hung down below the outer layer and looked very oddly cheap. Also, there was a very obvious repair at the top of the zipper that had been poorly executed and looked unprofessional. Finally, there was a faint but noticeable stain on the back at the bottom of the zipper - it looked like a thumbprint of someone grasping the bottom to zip it up. Fit-wise it was VERY tight at the waist - I am 100 pounds and usually wear a 0 or 00, and I could barely get this size 2 zipped up!! Definitely order up a size... I was terribly disappointed, as this dress was so pretty and I rented it 2 months ago to wear to an important business dinner... I actually had to scramble out and buy another dress to wear, since I hadn't packed a spare... I did call RTR right away and was offered a refund as soon as they received the dress back at their shop... i'm still waiting to see if this holds true, and I'll definitely update this review if they keep their promise! UPDATE*** RTR was true to their word and issued a refund for the dress. :) PS - This is the 6th dress I've rented from RTR and the first time I've ever had a quality issue... they are a class act and I will definitely keep renting!!

Red Hot Classic
Insansely stylish and eye catching. Color is fantastic. Fit is definitely small. I am normally a size 0petite with a small waist and barely got myself into the 2. The dress is a statement piece though and I would definitely rent again. I was also able to wear a regular bra with this which was nice.

I don't think I've ever received that many compliments in a single night.
It definitely runs small. I've never worn anything above a size 4, so this 6 threw me off. The color popped, the cut was great, but there was something wrong w/ the bottom hemline. The layer underneath kept peeking out, so the bottom looked unfinished. Other than that, it was perfect.

OKAY...
I rented this dress for a wedding, but didn't end up wearing the size 2 or 4 that I ordered. The 2 was too small and the 4 was OKAY, but the bottom hem kept slipping out. The dresses looked worn..

Fantastic dress! Sexy, flattering and comfortable! My husband became a believer!
I felt like a knock out! I put it on and didn't want to take it off! My husband has been skeptical about RTR, when I came out wearing this dress, his jaw dropped and he became a believer. This dress has it all. It's a great color, it is form flattering and it is amazingly comfortable. I got it for an evening wedding and I had heads turning all night. Wish I had gotten a picture. Can't wait for my next rental!

Everyone loved the dress and said I looked beautiful! Perfect birthday night!
I loved this dress! I was a little unsure of the color since I have yellow undertones but the color was richer than the color and worked great on my skin tone. The fit was perfect though you definitely need to have a small waist or size up for this dress. I loved the draping and shoulder accent. Other reviews mentioned trouble with the lining but mine was fine. I paired this dress with nude heels, a purple clutch and the raindrop LeMer Collection watch. This was a great dress for my birthday. I will definitely rent this dress again.

Perfect Fit, Lining Too Long
I tried on this dress at the showroom first and had to order it- perfect fit for my curves. The only reason I didn't give this dress 5 stars is because the dress that was delivered had a lining that was slightly longer than the hem. I ended up pinning the front hem up on the day I had to wear it which was slightly annoying but do-able. Overall, I got a ton of compliments for the dress and felt great in it, but I wish the lining had been a better fit.

Beautiful dress; tight at the waist
The dress has gorgeous material, and the cut of the folds is very flattering. I ordered a size 2 but normally wear a size 0. The waist band had no stretch and was uncomfortably tight. I recommend the dress, but I suggest going up a size.

Zipper stuck so didn't get to wear it.
This is an absolutely fabulous dress, very chic, great color, and I was heartbroken that I didn't get to wear it, but the zipper got stuck and even the tailor couldn't fix it. The "Runway" people were very nice about it but didn't have another one to send, and anyway, all the advice had been to get the next size, which hadn't been available, and which I definitely would have needed because it does run very small in the waist. Oh well.

Amazing dress- makes you look Mad Men Joan- curves and all.
Great fit- VERY tight on the waist (a waist cincher is ideal with this dress). Gets sweaty quickly though - the material is very moisture absorbent. Also, the zipper is EXTREMELY hard to maneuver. My fiance remarked if I bought the dress he'd make me promptly return it in order to get the darn zipper fixed.

I felt like Joan from Mad Men!
As other reviewers have mentioned, the fit around the waist in snug. The fit around the bust and hips was perfect. This dress accentuates your assets without being too revealing. I wore this dress to my son's Catholic school auction. Within five minutes of walking in the door I received many compliments - my favorite was from our priest, who shook my hand and said I looked "stunning." Overall, very happy and will definitely use RTR again.

Gorgeous color, but it runs small!
I was so excited to get this Christian Siriano dress in the mail - especially since I was such a huge fan of him on Project Runway. When I tried on the dress, it was a bit too small for my bustier figure, but the waist and hips fit perfectly. Since I rented the dress for a wedding, I ended up not wearing it, not wanting the "girls" to take any attention away from anything else going on that day :) The color of the dress was absolutely GORGEOUS and I recieved exactly what I was hoping for. I would definitely rent this dress again, but in a different size.

Best rental yet!
So, the dress does run small - I usually take a zero and the two fit PERFECTLY!. If you do not have a small waist line - I would almost recommend going two sizes up. I have a 23 - 24 inch waist and usually this is a place where dresses are rather loose on me. Even in the two - the waist on the dress fit me perfectly - on the snug side even. I am almost at a loss for words in terms of how much I love this dress. Very few dresses can emphasize your assets the way this one does, while still keeping them covered up. I would love, love, love to own this dress.

I read all the reviews and most said to size up, so I ordered my normal size 6 and went up a size for my extra and the 8 fit like a glove. The lining of the dress is so soft and made the dress so comfortable. I got a lot of looks and compliments!

Many, many compliments!
I love this dress. From the awesome color to the unique style, the dress has a total celebrity vibe to it. Definitely runs on the smaller side, I'm not very large at all up top and still felt a bit squeezed in the rib area. I'm usually between a 2 or a 4 and I wore the 4. I wish I could see this dress in my closet everyday, but we had one great night together!

Great dress! Very flattering
I ordered this dress in a size 4 and 6 based on other reviews that said it ran extremely small. I usually wear a 0 or 2 and the 4 fit perfectly. The color is vibrant and looks great with a tan. The dress is form fitting but still classy. I would definitely recommend it! I was also very pleased with RTR's customer service.

When 2 cars drove by, each stopping to complement the dress!
This dress is beautiful! I was a bit worried as it was only available in a size 8, and I usually wear a 6, but the 8 fit like a glove! I would recommend sizing up in this dress. It was very comfortable and easy to dance in, though I did have a bit of trouble stepping into a SUV and had to hike it up a bit to make the step. Very flattering dress, I got tons of complements...including a few people driving by in their cars! I highly recommend this dress.

Awesome dress, but stained.
This dress would have been perfection, but it was stained, like majorly stained all over. But, on the upside, RTR sent me an even more amazing dress! Anyhow, this dress definitely runs one size too large. I'm usually a 4 and the 6 was perfect. If you're chesty I could see going up two sizes. The fit is incredibly flattering due to the way it cinches tightly at the waist. It hides imperfections and the color is amazing- totally brightens up any complexion and makes you look your best.

Beautiful color
I loved the material and color of this dress. It is also made very well to make any waist look amazing. It does however run small. I normally wear a 0 and ended up renting a 2 and a 4 for this one. I wore the 2. It is also longer that it appears on the picture, for me at least. I ended up pinning the sides and that worked very well for me. It also wrinkles very easily. Something to remember if wearing it for an event that involves a long drive.

stunning
This is a gorgeous dress. My husband LOVED how this dress looked(he never notices anything, ever). It creates a real hourglass shape because it nips in quite a bit at the waist.

I want to keep it
This is just beautiful. No complaints at all. I will keep this dress on me forever. Go two sizes up. Do not get your usual size; it will not fit.
