Favorite dress rented to date!!!

This dress was perfection! I wore it to a rehearsal dinner and got nonstop compliments. There is some tulle under the skirt which gets a bit irritating. Otherwise this dress fit amazing! I'm 5'10 and it hit mid-calf so perfect for a taller girl

Hi Kelly - How did it fit without a bra? That's one of my concerns with the dress! Thanks!

A Stunningly Unique and Elegant, Yet Sexy Dress.

I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner at the Museum of Flight, and truly stood out from the crowd. It is a bold cherry red color, and the lady-like lace and length is a great contrast to the sexy open, lace-up back. I have a smaller chest and waist, but a bit of a booty, and the silhouette fit my body shape beautifully. I'm usually a size 4 in dresses and shirts but a size 6 in pants, and the 4 fit perfectly. I think the open back, halter neck, and looser skirt really will flatter almost any body type. There is some boning in the bodice but this didn't bother me at all, it just gave it good shape. The only con I had was that the under skirt had a kind of weighted edging at the bottom which came twisted around, as if someone had neglected to iron out that one seam and then put something heavy on top of it to create folds. However it was only the underskirt, and the lace over skirt disguised the flaw wonderfully. Overall, I give this dress 5 stars because it not only fit great, but made me feel like an elegant, strong, sexy woman. I would definitely buy this dress if I ever came across it, and highly, highly recommend renting it.

Didn't end up working for me

First, this dress is absolutely beautiful. It just didn't work for me. This dress is definitely made for a tall, slender woman. I'm usually a size 4 (sometimes 6), and my waist size is 28. Neither the 4 nor the 6 would fully zip for me. The chest was ill-fitting for me even after adjusting the straps in the back. Also it was obviously too long. BUT it was beautiful and the quality of the dress was great.

Classy & unique

I am obsessed with this dress! I wore it to see the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater perform when they were in town and it was a perfect outfit! Got multiple compliments from passers-by and felt absolutely gorgeous. I added a little edge to the flowery lace and paired it with a leather biker jacket and the lace up wedges. The fit was true to size. Didn't wear a bra given the open back style, but the lace overlay covered up anything I didn't want to show. I would recommend this dress for all body types and many different occasions, day or night - I don't want to send it back!!

Flattering for slender shoulders and arms

I vary between size 8 and size 10 when it comes to dress (being more slender in the chest and shoulders than the hips). The size 8 fit well on top but was a bit snug in the hips so I decided the 10 was the way to go. I did feel that the bust (or side boob if you will) was a gapping, even with tying the strings in the back tighter. Also; the underlay has this tulle insert that is there to give the skirt some volume. This detail flipped around and made the underlay ride up. I would recommend this dress for a more standing/dancing event due to the fact that every time I got up from sitting, I had to be very aware that the underskirt wasn't bunched up.

Absolutely perfect

This dress was a dream! The lace and color are stunning, and the cut was flattering for me (cinches waist, classic silhouette, shows off your back). I would recommend this for smaller chests as it is best worn without a bra. It was incredibly comfortable for a long day at a warm wedding, including on the dance floor. I have never gotten so many compliments on a dress from RTR. I wish I owned it! Rent this ASAP.

Beautiful fabric and dress shape.

So many compliments. I wore it to a beach wedding. The lace was fantastic and I loved how my legs peeked out from the bottom of the dress. Beautiful. Lots of room for a bigger bust.

That the dress came on time and fit great.

The fit was perfect because of the strung up back, I loved that you could adjust it. The dress was so comfortable and I got a lot of compliments on the vibrant color. The red is so bright, it's like a cherry lollipop. The only thing that was incredibly annoying was the underdress. There was plastic mesh about 2 inches in height starting at the hem, to I guess give the dress shape. But it looked warped due to what looked like heat and stayed flipped up, the only way I could attempt to fix it was iron it all through the second half of Step Brothers, and put heavy SAT books on it for an entire day. In the photo you can kinda see what I'm talking about, but either way it turned out great. Anyone and everyone should rent this dress.

Unique

Many compliments! Unique fun dress! The only thing that was odd was the underlay- it has a stiff hem and was a bit warp. It was likely to give the dress more volume, but I wasn't a fan. But loved he dress!

I'm really bummed I didn't take a dozen more pictures in this dress because it was really stunning

Pros-extremely comfortable, figure flattering, and best shade of red Cons- the material under the lace of the dress is a little wonky and would flip up making the covered part a tad shorter. It's the only reason i didn't give the dress 5 stars but even with that issue Id still rent the dress again Bc the overall look is so great.

A million compliments!

This dress is incredible! Perfect for a formal affair or summer wedding. I received compliments all evening and will definitely be renting again. Very easy to get away with the backless by getting a sticky bra. The length is very flattering even if you're shorter.

Amazing fit and absolutely stunning! So many compliments!!

Only thing that was slightly bothersome was the thin mesh lining at the bottom of the dress. I had to reshape it a bit before wearing. It could also become uncomfortable after sitting too long. Regardless, I'd rent it again!!!

Beautiful on and beautiful details!

I don't have a picture from the party but I received compliments all night. It is more red than orange but still beautiful. The hem of the slip has this rigid material to make the skirt poof out a little which was a tad irritating at first, but once I was at the event, I didn't even notice it. I was also worried it would be too long on me since I'm 5'4". It was definitely longer on me than the model (duh) but It still looked great! I would rent again!

So many compliments

Dress was beautiful and comfortable. I was nervous that the straps in the back would be unflattering and cut into my back fat, but since you control how tight it is, that wasn't an issue. Fabric has no stretch. I got compliments from strangers all night!

RTR had great taste with this red Spring dress.

The fit was mostly great--of course, being short, I didn't expect it to be right below the knee like the model; it was tea-length and I wore one size smaller than my usual. I had compliments all night and stood out maybe too much for a wedding. Teen girls loved the string in the back, women loved the color and design. Cons were that it runs large and no pockets... but pros are that it is a pretty dress and will get you noticed :) I might rent this dress again if RTR eventually has petite sizes.

Great color and cut!

This dress fit beautifully and was a ton of fun to wear. I got so many compliments at both weddings I wore it to. The dress is made of a nice, sturdy material, so even though I'm full chested, it was fine that I couldn't wear a bra. The only negatives are small ones - the straps are thin and made of a sort of slippery material, so I had to re-tie the dress a couple of times throughout the night. Also, the lining has a strip of a thick sort of mesh at the bottom to keep it down, but also to give the dress some shape. It worked really well for both of those things, but the lining is short so when you sit, the mesh can be a bit uncomfortable. I also had to iron the bottom of the lining when the dress arrived because it was all puckered and kept flipping over. Not a big deal, but definitely necessary. I'm also tall (5'7") and the dress is longer on me that on the model - a true mid-calf length. It was so different and fun to wear - I definitely recommend it!

Such a fun dress!

As always with dresses from RTR, I got compliments ALL night! I wore this to a pretty casual Texas BBQ wedding and it could not have been more perfect. It pretty much looks just like the pictures. I was nervous because I've lost a bunch of weight since I ordered the dress, but the top ties so there's some flexibility there. There is a zipper on the back, but the dress isn't super fitted in the hips. The only thing that bugged me was that the lining on the bottom didn't lay flat on one side. It has a stiff edge to keep the skirt out a bit and the edge kept rolling over on my right. I'm not sure if it could have been pressed so it didn't do that, but it obviously didn't ruin my experience!

Incredible dress!

I rented this dress for the Kentucky Derby and Oaks. It's a very flattering dress. The slip underneath was bent and a little odd but it gave the dress a little more flare. The boning in the side was poking out a little which was uncomfortable at times but I didn't notice it much. I got SO many compliments. Everyone stopped me to ask where I got the dress. I don't want to send it back!

Formal enough for a church but perfect for the reception

I was worried that this dress might show a little too much skin for a Catholic wedding in the church, but it wasn't at all. It was a perfect mix of classy but very chic. I received 4 compliments before I even took my seat for the ceremony. The color was to die for. It was exactly how it looks in the picture, super bright almost a bit orangey. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was this a kind of netting material that's underneath of the dress. It's short and it only went down to about mid thigh but it was super crinkled and although you couldn't tell from looking at it with the lace down, it was just a little uncomfortable the way it was laying on my legs. But that was a minor thing, I would absolutely rent this again. The dress was perfect for a spring wedding. Great length, color and overall style. I got more compliments than I can remember. At least 30 people told me how amazing this dress was. 5 stars..rent this dress! I wore it with nude pumps, simple earrings and a gold clutch.

Great color and fit!

Received a lot of compliments in this dress and the color really popped! I rented a size 6 and 4 and ended up going with the 4. The dress is great because it ties in the back and is adjustable so you can get away with the smaller size! I read previous reviews and was worried about the under slip of the dress being a pain. It seems like it's there to give the dress some shape. It's a little itchy but you can't notice it from the outside of the dress. I would definitely rent this dress again was very comfy as well!

This dress was amazing. It was so unique and I received so many compliments! I usually wear a 0 or 2. All that was available was a 0 and it fit perfectly. I am a 32DD- I wore a sticky backless bra. Loved everything about this dress didn't want to return it!

The best dress I've ever rented

This dress fit so perfectly - once I figured out how to get it on! I didn't need to wear a bra and felt secure and comfortable all night. Beautiful color and fabric. Beware of dry cleaning - the person before me had and it messed up the underskirt. Wish I could buy it!!

Feminine and unique dress

Great dress, sad to return it! Slip didn't quite lay flat but I think that's how it's supposed to be, to give the dress more of a bell shaped skirt. Very flattering and great color. Loved the longer length, was something different. Would rent again!

Perfect dress for a summer wedding.

Could have worn the 4 - but was worried of overindulging at the wedding. I think the 6 was a little big but either could have worked. Got tons of compliments. Loved the length and open back ! Lining came twisted (probably due to dry cleaning ) had to iron that with a towel to flatten it so I could wear the dress ! Heads up!

Flattering fit, great color

This is a great alternative to the lace Self Portrait dress that seems to be the wedding uniform this spring. Was slightly baggy in the chest for me (I'm a 34A/B) but I'd wear it again in a heartbeat. Great color and lots of compliments!

Loved the color for a summer wedding

Great fit and beautiful dress. Biggest concern was the solid under piece on mine did not lay flat. Not sure if this is intentional or a defect but it made it ride up occasionally throughout the night. still got many complements and it was comfortable / breezy for a summer wedding.
