Perfect Holiday Dress

This dress was absolutely perfect for Christmas this year. Elegant, classy- and the quality was obvious. My favorite I've worn from RTR!

I did not wear this dress as it was too small.

This dress was too tight across the butt area to wear.

Beautiful purple color. stunning ruffle design.

Super tight fit throughout, I feel like the dress didn't look great in pictures because of the fit across the midsection. I have a fairly flat stomach, so I was confused as to why it created a little bulge in pictures. I wore spanx, but I don't feel like it helped anything other than smoothy out the sides.

Went up two sizes just to fit my hips/stomach/butt

This dress is classy, but my goodness is it tight in the stomach, hips and butt area. I pretty much get away with a size 4 when there is more give, but I had to go up two sizes all while my chest area looked OK in each size. If you are curvy size up and up again.

Dress was great quality and style for a very reasonable amount!

This is the first RTR rental (and I've rented a lot) that I didn't give five stars, only because even the larger size didn't fit me well around the waist...very small for my body type. For someone with small waist and hips it would look fabulous! Its a beautiful dress!

Very flattering dress!

I normally wear a 6 but got this in an 8 based on reviews. This dress fit in all the right places. It was snug and hugged my curves very well. I loved it!

A deep plum way to make an entrance!

I love this trendy ruffle dress by Cinq à Sept! Running true to size with no stretch, I recommend wearing your true size for your primary size and going up for your back up. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and fitted at the hips. It works for cup sizes A-C. You should wear nubra or a standard bra with the bra back clips since the shoulders cinch in a bit and would expose a normal bra. At 5’4”, the length hit just below the knee on me. The deep plum color of the dress is amazing in person and the ruffle at the split makes this dress unique. Pair with black or nude heels and fun earrings to complete your outfit!

I used this dress for a photoshoot and she looked stunning! She said the dress was very comfortable and well fitting to her body. Did have some issues with wrinkling.

Fitted and comfortable, great wedding guest outfit!

The fit was perfect. I’m 34C and 29 bottoms and the 6 was perfect for my body. I have a larger bottom and the dress was definitely tight, but not so much that I couldn’t get down on the dance floor in it. Greatest part was I didn’t have to wear a bra at all! Color was a perfect dark maroon and the mid-thigh slit with ruffle allowed a little leg but all the modesty.

Perfect for a winter wedding!

Loved this dress! Form fitting & flattering, although longer & more conservative style. The 0 was quite snug, so I wore the 2 to be more comfortable. Would rent this again :)

The fit is very form fitting, great for someone who is confident with their body. I do feel it runs a bit small.

Lovely dress! I felt elegant.

Size 6 was the right size for me, but it was a little long. It should have hit right at my knee but was a little below. Very comfortable.

Didn't wear

I wanted to love this dress, but the fit was just off. It's very pretty, a nice fabric and the color was just as pictured. I usually wear a 4, so I ordered it in a 6 & 8 after reading reviews that it ran very small in the hips. Unfortunately, to get a flattering fit in the hips I really needed to wear the 8, but the top gaped at the armholes. I don't usually have trouble filling out the top in dresses, I'm a 32E, but the top was way too big.

Really nice piece but rather strange fit.

I really liked this dress but, while the top part was really snug, even without a bra on, the waist area was really large and my very slender, petite frame, look a bit pot-bellied. It was also a bit longer than I had expected, coming down to my ankles. I am only barely 5' 2 " though so I'm sure it would be a great length for someone a little taller.

Pleasantly purple

The dress is surprisingly small, the 8 fit me like a glove - didn't need a bra and might have even been slightly too tight in certain areas. The material is also stiffer than I expected. Beautiful shade of purple, slit with ruffle is unique. Felt good in the dress. Could dress up or down.

Loved it!

I wore this dress to a wedding in Red Rocks. The color is more plum purple than what the picture on the site looks like. I did need to wear the back up size (I'm typically a size 6) since I have a larger backside-- the fabric is a little tight. But overall, the larger size fit perfectly and I received many compliments!

Rides up your hips... constant tug

Any larger and my tatas would fly out up top. Too small along the hips and I had to tug it down the entire event. If you don't have hips, it would be fine. Seriously... if you have hips, this dress will drive you bonkers.

Chic and unique!

Dress is definitely form fitting so I highly recommend spanx! It runs true to size but slightly on the smaller side so some women may prefer to size up.

Got a lot of compliments on this dress! Wore it to a wedding. Would recommend getting your regular size and a size bigger. Ended up wearing the bigger size as it looked better.

Sleek and fitted silhouette, with plum-perfect color - made a keynote picture perfect

What a plum perfect, elegant look - tailored with just a hint of flounce and femininity. Great for an athletic build. This designer always runs 1 1/2 to 2 sizes small, so size up.

Classy and fun!

This dress was beautiful and fit like a glove! The structure and fabric of the dress made this such a classy outfit to wear to a friend's wedding. The front the dress cuts closer to your collarbone so I had to go with a strapless bra. The length was just past my knees and the ruffle added just the right amount of fun to the dress. I would rent again!

Fabulous dress but ran small

I loved this dress but am super glad I got the back up size a size larger. I fit into the 0 but it was too tight to be comfortable. The 2 fit beautifully so I would recommend sizing up when renting this dress. It is a form fitting, gorgeous plum dress. I have no great photos of the dress alone as I wore this for my white coat ceremony but it was perfect for the event! Professional and formal enough for the event but still made me feel absolutely beautiful. I wish I owned this dress.

Show off your curve stunner!

This pick was a last minute exchange because the dress I rented did not work. I have a larger chest but could easily wear this without a bra, due to the great structure and thick, supportive material. It fit like a glove and I got compliments on how well it showcased my body all evening. It's a great plum color that lent itself to dressing up with colorful accents and was easy to move (and dance in!) all night. Definitely wanted to purchase it (maybe in red!) as a showstopper!
