Perfect for Military Ball!
This was my first time using RTR and I'm so glad I gave it a shot! I'm usually very worried about ordering things online because I fear they will not fit. I put all my trust into RTR for the Air Force Ball this year and was not disappointed. This dress fit like it was made just for me! After reading reviews I decided to order my true size (0) + a size up (2). I'm on the shorter side (5'3") so I went with the regular length. I wore about a 3-4 inch heel which allowed the dress to grace the floor + I was still able to walk comfortably without tripping. Also, I was a bit worried this dress would be a little much for the occasion (having the slit on the side + up the leg) but nope! It was perfect...classy yet sexy! Just the look I was going for. My husband couldn't stop staring at me/complimenting me. I paired the dress with dangly earrings + rose gold Steve Madden heels. Wish I could have kept the dress!

This dress was amazing. It definitely runs small so go one size up but the material hugs in all of the right places

OMG this dress!
Sexy & sophisticated and the perfect shade of red. I love a good red dress - and this one may be my favorite one yet. The slit and side cut out make it so sexy, but paired with the hair neckline and long length it is classy. I wore 4 inch heels and the dress was a perfect length, it looked tailored. I got a ton of compliments on the fit. Both the size 2 and 4 fit, but I went with the 2 because it felt like it sucked everything in more securely. The material was wonderful and did not wrinkle during a whole weekend of traveling. I loved this dress was so sad to send back, would rent again!

Very comfortable and true to size! Can be a little tight around the waist but nothing too substantial. Highly recommended for a simple and elegant look.

This dress was form fitting while still being classy. I loved the material and the fit of the dress. The slits made the dress sexy but not too much.

I wore this dress for Mardi Gras ball, and it was the perfect combination of fun and elegance.
This dress fit mostly true to size, although it was about half an inch longer than I would've preferred. Although, at 5'2, that's not uncommon.

Sexy AND classy!
Dress hugs everything perfectly and I got tons of compliments. It was perfect for an event where you wanted to look sexy but still classy. I found the dress super comfortable. I am 5-6" and wore 3 inch heels and thought the L length was perfect. Covered my heel but did not drag.

Sexy, yet classy, dress. Loved it!
Such a fun and comfortable dress! I wore it to a formal wedding and got so many compliments. The color was gorgeous! It was a little shorter than I expected, but luckily I had shorter nude heels to wear with it. I didn't wear any undergarments with it b/c it was so fitted and you would have seen the lines. Would highly recommend!

Great for a summer wedding
I loved wearing this dress! It definitely runs small - I'm usually a 2 but I wore a 4 in this dress and it was tight. The slit up the front makes it easy to walk around and dance. I got a ton of compliments all night!

Sexy and Sophisticated
Loved this for the formal wedding I went to. It was sexy with a high slit and very form fitting. But conservative neckline. It was thick and held you in, but was very tight. I wish I had an 8L to be more comfortable all night. 5'8", 146 pounds, athletic build. Wore 4.5" heels and the long length was perfect. I received many compliments and stood out in this amazing dress!!!

Very snug and flattering!
I usually always order Elizabeth and James dresses on RTR. I know they typically run a little small - so I ordered the 2R and 0R (they didn't have Petite sizes available). I'm 5' 1 1/2", so I always worry about dresses being too small, and I've had to use double sided tape in the past with RTR on dresses that were too long. Unfortunately, I forgot to pack that for this trip - oops! Both the 0 and the 2 fit, but I decided to wear the 0R because it was more snug around my waist and I felt like it would suck everything in. It was a little too long - but I wore it anyways. I wore 4" heels and you can see at the bottom where it was touching the ground. I just had to lift my dress whenever walking up the stairs. I'm a 32 DD and I never wear bras - I didn't have to wear one in this dress. The material is thick and form fitting. I received lots of compliments all night on the dress. Very flattering! I would definitely rent it again, if it came a little shorter.

The color was gorgeous. The dress material was nice and thick.
Really popped in a crowed. The cutout on the waist was a little too high for my body type. I have a large bust so had to wear a bra. I was able to wear one (with a connector piece in the back to hide the straps). But the bra kept showing at the top of the cutout. So I was self-conscious all night, so didn't like it. Leg slit wasn't too high, hit at the right place.

This dress has it all. The slit in the front is super sexy as well as the side cut out. The color is a bright fire engine red which really makes this dress a show stopper.

The wedding was amazing and I couldn't have picked a better dress to celebrate with.
I am 5'2 so I always get nervous when I order floor length gowns. I had read the reviews and on recommendation decided to wear 4 inch heels. Thanks to that call the dress fit perfectly! But to be honest at the end of the night after no much dancing, I put on rescue flats and although the dress did touch the floor I was still able to dance the night away and it wasn't too long. I wore a racerback bra with it and was comfortable. The bra did not show in the side slit. I did not wear underwear and they did show through the tight material.I highly recommend!

The dress fit perfectly. I received many compliments, and I felt hot.
The 2 would have fit as well. It was snug, but it created a phenomenal silhouette. I recommend this dress to anyone. I think it will do a justice to a number of body types.

I got so many compliments all night. For sure recommend this dress!!
I wore this to a charity gala. I typically wear a size 4. After reading reviews I wanted the 6 but it was unavailable. It would have probably been more comfortable since the 4 was a little snug for me in the hip/leg area but it was doable. In the picture I am wearing the 4R. So it hit the floor and I am around 5'4-5'5. I was planning on wearing 5 inch heels so I ended up wearing the 4L. I ended up wearing sticky boobs but the material is pretty thick so you can get away with not wearing a bra.

Lady in RED
Absolutely stunning and elegant dress. It's definitely a head turner. I got compliments all night. I went bra-less as the dress tapers in and I didn't want to be adjusting them out of sight. True to size, but having wider hips you may want to size up since it was a little snug only when sitting. Lovvvvved this dress! Highly recommended esp if you're going for a Jessica Rabbit look!

Fun dress!
The one issue I had with this dress was the fabric underneath the armpit above the cut out. On the 8 there was way to much extra fabric, but on the 10 there was actually less extra fabric. So not sure if the size 10 shrunk somehow to be smaller than the 8 or if it just fit me better in different areas. I debated pinning the extra fabric in this area, but decided against it. I still think it overall fit well and looked great!

The dress was one of a kind and I loved how comfortable I was in it.
The color is such a rich, beautiful red and the dress runs true to size. The slit is pretty high, I have long legs and it was way up there, but classy and fairly conservative dress overall.

Awesome evening and I felt super comfortable all night.
LOVED this dress! So comfy, very flattering and I got a ton of compliments. I agree with others who said the dress runs small, I'm generally a 4 and had to size up to a 6. For reference I'm 5'6 and the regular length wasn't perfect. I was worried it'd be too short but it was good. Definitely recommend this one it's a classic and beautiful dress.

Fit great and is very flattering for girls with hips. note that you can wear the shorts-style spanx with this, but be sure they are the kind that stop at the belly button.

Wonderful Dress!
I loved the dress--it felt and looked great. I had read in other reviews that it ran a bit small, so I ordered a 2L and 4L, but I realised I should have gotten a 0L because it was bit lose around my waist. It still fit well though!

I loved everything about this dress! I'm 5'6 so I'm glad I went with a "long" dress. Most dresses I would wear a size 8, but I wore a 10L to my event. My advice is to go up a size if you plan to rent this dress!

I can not say enough good things about this dress and so happy with my first-ever rental from RTR! I received so many compliments as I wore this to an event and still receive compliments on the photos to this day. I'm usually a size 4 so this seemed to run a little small for me but luckily I looked at the reviews and opted for a 4 and 6. I was able to wear a bra with it as well. I would definitely recommend this dress for a formal event!
