The pop of color and fit made the dress perfect for engagement pictures!
The fit and color were perfect! It really popped in our engagement pictures. As others have noted, it is a bit difficult to put together with all of the different loops for the straps. This is why I chose it for the first outfit for pictures, because I knew I needed help tying it up! Other than the complexity of figuring out the straps, I have no complaints. I love the dress, and I got tons of compliments! Photo Credit: Rogue Images Photography

Breathtaking Color!
The dress fits marvelously and was unbelievably comfortable for the most part. The vibrant red contrasted extremely well with the black heels that I wore to the event. The only drawback was that the side of the dress had plastic pieces to hold up the sides and ended up poking into my skin. The hem of the dress was lined with plastic which was wavy and had to be ironed. They need to replace the plastic hem! Was able to size down because skirt is slightly flared.

A dress so nice it was worn twice!
My favorite dress from RTR. It was beautiful. Great color and style. Loved the neckline and the back and it was comfortable to dance in. One of my best friends rented it as well and also approves!

Might be my favorite dress I've ever rented!
I normally wear a 6R, so the fact that I wore a 2R tells you this dress definitely runs small! The thing is, it laces up in the back, so you can make it as tight or as loose as you want. I loved the bright color, and it was so comfortable, I didn't even need to wear a bra! If it wasn't so memorable, I would rent it again and again!

What a hit!
I love this dress and so did everyone else! I have never received more compliments from complete strangers. As for the fit, it was perfect. Fitted on top and flowy on the bottom. I didn't find it all itchy as some other reviews had indicated. I also loved the extra hook on the back to add an additional criss-cross of the straps. Everyone told me I should consider buying it! Another highlight, I didn't have to wear a bra!

I loved this dress!
I was between a 6 and 8 in this dress. I believe I ended up wearing a 6 because you can tie the back of the dress tighter. The 8 had too much fabric around the arms. If I rented again I would definitely get these 2 sizes again. In general, the dress runs true to size.

Pop of Red
I received so many compliments on this dress! The color is fantastic and the dress itself is forgiving- order a size down for your backup size. The skirt lining was really crumpled at the bottom when it arrived but nothing a quick ironing couldn't take care of. I loved this dress so much that during the event I re-reserved it for another event this month!

Late Summer/Early Fall
This was perfect for my brother's late summer/early fall wedding! I could've comfortably wore the 10 but since I'm larger in the bust, the 12 provided more complete coverage across my chest without digging the back ties into my back. The lace is beautiful in person and I received so many compliments!

Ladies in RED
We had an all RED event at work, and this dress was perfect! It was comfortable AND a showstopper! I wore it with black strapped heels and an adhesive bra since the back was pretty open. Everyone asked who made the dress, it was a total hit!

Compliments all night long.
I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner. I had just had my son four months prior and this dress hid it all. It was perfect, forgiving, and made me feel great! I went up a size from my normal dress size -- my bust at this time was DD.

This was a beautiful color and fabric. Lots of compliments! Not quite enough support to go braless, so I went with the stickies. Flattering fit and cut!

Fit perfectly, didn't have to wear a bra (which is always a plus), the semi open back is a nice aspect, I never wear red so this was a fun change of pace!

Party dress perfection
This dress was conservative and flattering. I got several compliments and felt very festive. I kind of expected it to be more of an orange'y red, but it is cherry red. My only complaint is there's a band around the bottom of the internal dress that is rather uncomfortable. Would recommend renting this dress.

Beautiful dress to wear to a beach wedding. I received numerous compliments!
The fit is great. I am a size 8/10 in dresses dependent on the designer. I ordered a size 8; it fit like a glove. I am 5'8, 36C, 29, 40. I weigh 155 lbs. This dress is a great for curvy girls!

Got so many compliments on the length and color of this dress!
Pros: True to size, sturdy structure, fabric is not too heavy but still detailed Con: The ribbing on the sides of the bodice were starting to come out of the top, so a little painful but otherwise great!

Lady in Red
Rented this for a friends NYC fall wedding. The dress was beautiful, and I received many compliments! The red color was gorg & the lace really popped. I didn't need to wear a lot of jewelry, as the dress spoke for itself. FYI- You can't wear a bra with this, as it is backless, but the ties will make you feel secure. I wear a 34-E, and I was comfortable, even dancing!

Complements ALL Night!
The dress fit perfectly and was easy to move in and dance. I wore it to a wedding and received complements all night from people saying it was such a beautiful dress. The lace near the underarm area stuck out a little when I raised my arms so I secured it with some fashion tape and it stayed in place all night. It was a very elegant yet comfortable dress. I had no issues wearing it from 5 pm to 2 am. One of the better RTR dresses I have received.

NA
The fit was great but the dress was a bit worn when I received it. For both sizes, the piping under the arm was sticking out and poking into my skin. I was able to solve by putting a band-aid over it during the wedding. Part of the lace was also ripped towards the bottom of my dress, so I had to put a few stitches in it before wearing. Besides this, the dress was beautiful and I received a lot of compliments.

GORGEOUS dress!
I loved everything about this dress - the fit was perfect, the color was just the right pop of red, and the style was so flattering! I wore this to a wedding my fiancé was a groomsman for, and I got compliments all night! Fit was very true to size, just needed some help tying the straps in the back to make the front lay just right. I didn't have any issues with the boning in the bodice as some people have - highly recommend this dress for a special occasion!

The perfect red dress!
I was nervous about this dress because I typically wear a 4 and the only size available was a 2. Thankfully I have a small waist and the dress laces up! This really is the perfect dress for girls with small waists and thicker hips. Rented for both a photo shoot and a wedding. The color pictured is true to life: it is a beautiful, bright, cherry red. Midi length was just past my knee. The only think I didn't like was that the skirt section underneath has a stiff, mesh hem sewn in that wasn't super comfortable to sit on... but the number of compliments I received on this dress made it worth it! Highly recommend!

Amazing color and material
I was worried about the straps on the back emphasizing back fat, but saw a girl wearing this dress at a wedding the weekend before I had rented this and she assured me that you could adjust the straps and have them low enough to not be super strappy. The material was beautiful and heavy and I got tons of compliments on the color! Only got pictures of me at the wedding with a jacket over my shoulders so this was the how-fat-do-I-look before we left the house pic

Runs big!
This runs a little big and it really will only look good if it fits right. The 4 was too big and I hated it but when I tried on the 2 I was in love. I am 5' 1" and was worried about the length but it was perfect!

Great Dress--tons of compliments!
I loved the look of this dress! The open back was great and the fit was perfect. Unfortunately the boning on one side was coming through the under layer of the dress which was uncomfortable while sitting down. Also, the dress underneath the floral pattern was a little short in the back! All in all I loved the dress and wish I could buy a new one to wear again!

Loved it so much I would buy it
I ordered a 4 and 6. I could have worn the 4 but the string for the back of the dress was so short I couldn't tie it as it's photographed. So I ended up wearing the 6. It was a little big in some spaces but I tied it tight so It worked too! I got so many compliments and the color was just what I was hoping for!

Gorgeous lace details and rich color!
I loved this dress - really beautiful and the backless straps were so lovely! I got so many compliments during the wedding as well as from pictures afterwards! The distance between the lining and the lace overlay was a little big - also there was a kind of yucky body odor smell on the dress - thankfully I could get perfume to cover it. Overall, it was a gorgeous dress!

Stunning dress!
I received many compliments on this dress at the wedding I attended. It was a snug fit at the waist and hips for me, and on an overall comfort level scale of 1-10 (10 being best), I'd give it a 7. The edge detail is slightly uncomfortable at your arm pits, otherwise it was fine. I went braless due to the very open and low back, and this worked fine.

Wish I could keep
I was nervous about this dress because the open back and high neck plus bright color was outside my comfort zone, but I'm so glad I went for it. This dress was stunning. The 0 fit me like a glove. I wore a backless strapless bra because I'm rather small busted and going braless would make me look quite flat. I think this would work for ladies of nearly all bust sizes due to the nature of the tie back. This hit me at about mid calf, very much tea length. I felt elegant, appropriate but absolutely beautiful in this dress. The only downside was it wasn't cleaned very well. When putting it on I noticed a very strong smell of BO. I did my best to cover it with some perfume of as the night wore on that wore off. I felt quite self conscious about people smelling it when they hugged me. That was quite disappointing as I figured that should be the last kind of problem I should have to deal with. I accessorized with dangle earrings, a simple daisy ring that looks similar to the flowers in the dresses lace, a black wrap scarf, nude strappy chunky heeled shoes, a black envelope clutch that had subtle sparkles, and very light pink/nude nails and toes. Perfect color combinations. Couldn't have felt much more beautiful.

Fun dress especially for a warm, desert wedding!
The only con is the inner slip rode up frequently and the elastic around the thighs didn't lay flat without adjustment over and over. The color, style and fit were so fun and I got quite a few compliments otherwise.

This dress is gorgeous! I got a lot of compliments. The one con was that the boning was poking out a bit. I used some tape to keep it from poking me. Other than that, I loved wearing this dress!

Amazing, so many compliments
This dress was amazing. The color is rich and bright. The lace is super pretty and the whole dress is a nice, heavy material that stays in place. With the high neck and fitted waist it was complimentary to my bust without being showy. The length made it very appropriate - one older attendee of the wedding went on at length at how much she loved it. Mildly complicated to get on - I would definitely recommend having a friend help with the tie in the back, the zipper on mine was a little stiff possibly due to the heavy fabric. The lining was a little weird, it came down halfway and there was some kind of plastic weight on it to help keep it in place. When you sat on it it was not the most comfortable but I stopped noticing over the course of the evening (a few drinks may have helped haha). I was comfortable the whole night, very easy to dance in. I paired it with 2 inch nude heels and bright red lips that matched. I'm 5"5 and it was a long tea length on me. Fun bonus, due to the lace not being fully lined, your shadow is full of flowers.

Great dress!
Loved this dress! It was great material, well made, offered good support, and fit true to size. I wore a size 4R but it was a little roomy so I probably could have gone down to a 2R. I absolutely recommend it!

This vivid red is a showstopper for any event!
The dress is classy, fun, and subtly beautiful. I loved it so much! I normally wear a 2, but ordered late and sufficed with a 4. The fit of the four was great, but I do think I would've been even more in love (if that's even possible) if it had been a size smaller. The adjustable back and straps were cute and made fitting the dress easy. One comment about the straps is that over he course of the night, the straps began to hurt a lot on my shoulders. Honestly, that's inevitable with the construction of the dress, so it's not a knock to RTR.
