The service was amazing and the dress was beautiful!

I went to the Marine Ball where I wore this gown. I received so many compliments and felt gorgeous! My date loved the dress!

This dress was absolutely beautiful but definitely runs small.

The dress was a vibrant red that really stands out and it did come with a small black ribbon to tie around the waist. Sadly, the dress didn't even come CLOSE to zipping up the back, so I was unable to wear it for my event. Definitely recommend ordering a size up if you have broad shoulders or a large bust area.

Fit beautifully and is overall a gorgeous dress!

The dress was slightly too long, but I'm 5'0 tall so I was expecting that issue. It was really beautiful and I received comments all night.

Perfect fit! Looked beautiful and got tons of compliments. Simple yet elegant.

Wore this for my junior prom and it was great! I'm 5'4'' and wore 4 inch heels and it was the perfect length! May need to be worn with a strapless bra.

Needed a red dress for a formal event and this did the trick!

I needed a red dress for a black tie event and this dress worked perfectly. I at first felt like a bridesmaid with the cut and the fabric, but I received a lot of compliments. I didn't love the way it made my hips look, but it was comfortable to wear.

Beautiful dress but runs small.

I ordered this as my back up dress in a 4L, and didn't wear it. The color was beautiful, but it definitely runs small. I am a 4, but can sometimes fit a 2 on top. I could not zip this dress. The black ribbon was left out which was sad, but I loved my first dress so much it didn't matter.

Loved this dress! Also loved the people at the flatiron store location - thanks for the help!

I loved the color of this dress. I wore 8 petite and it was a great length. I'm 5'0" and wore 4 inch heels, the dress just about skimmed the floor. I'm a 34D and wore this bra-less. The top held everything in, although I felt like it would be much better for smaller chest sizes.

Comfortable and gorgeous!

The color is deeper in person than it looks online, which was a pleasant surprise for me! I wore it to a gala and was very comfortable the whole night in it! Would rent this dress again! I wore really low heels but it would have been a little too short if I had worn anything higher.

Great dress

It was a great dress. Petite was perfect for my height. Wore with a couple inch heels, had to hold to go up stairs but not for walking. The top edge did flip down a little bit once in awhile but not noticeably.

Marine Corps Ball

The fit was perfect! I'm 5'3 so I ordered a 2P because previously I had rented the same dress for a different event in a 2R and it was too long but I didn't end up wearing it. So this time around I rented the petite version and it was perfect . I wore 4.5 in heels and the dress skimmed the floor. My husband loved it on me and I received many compliments. It is ver comfortable, it's fitted on the bust and flowy on the skirt. Easy to dance, sit and walk in. Also, I opted to wear a gold belt to add more of a pop to an otherwise simple but pretty dress. However they did include 2 different sized black ribbon belts and orbitz gum!;)

This dress was perfect for my black tie event. I felt like royalty in this dress!

The 6 fit fine, but the 8 was more comfortable on my hips. That fit was perfect. I did not need a strapless bra and felt very secure all night. It was so comfortable and so easy to dance in the dress. I would highly recommend this dress as a rental.

This dress was perfect for prom. I got so many compliments on it and I felt great wearing it.

This dress is a beautiful color and it has lots of great details. The neckline is very flattering. The ruching is elaborate which makes the simplicity of the rest of the dress perfect. The fabric is flowy and the material is very high quality. I chose not to wear the belt, but a narrow gold belt would be a nice alternative. The exposed gold zipper on the back of the dress is eye catching and many people commented on that as well. I thought the size 4L would be perfect but I also had the 2L for back up and it fit better than the 4L. The only jewelry I wore was from RTR, Nicole Miller's gold and crystal "Star Light Star Bright" and it was sparkly and elegant. Lot's of complements on the necklace as well! Comfort is very important to me and this super-flattering dress was very comfortable.

Wore this for Navy Ball

It was wayyyy too long for me, which I expected because I am only 5' 2" and pretty much everything is too long for me. Thankfully my heels were ridiculously tall and it worked out. The bust was also a little big and I had to pull the dress up throughout the night, but again, expected because I am only 32A. Overall happy with this dress! Received tons of compliments and loved the color and simplicity of the dress.

Perfect Last Minute Prom Dress

I rented this dress three days before my event when my other dress didn't work out and I couldn't be more happy with how this one turned out. I'm usually a 4 and since I'm 5'8" I got the long, but the 2R ended up being perfect with my little 3in heel. It did not come with the black belt I REPEAT IT DID NOT COME WITH THE BLACK BELT, but I just used some black ribbon which looked cute hanging down in the back. There is some boning in the top which really helped hold up the dress and I wasn't weighed down with having to tug my dress up all night. Overall, a great dress and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone that wants a nice, simple and classic dress.

Beautiful dress for any formal occasion :)

I actually loved how the dress looked when it arrived: perfect condition with no wrinkles/creases! When I put it on, the 4P still felt a little big around the bust area. I actually didn't expect that since this was already a petite fit, but it was still OK to wear for the wedding. I was a little disappointed when the dress didn't come with the black belt in the picture - I had totally forgotten to bring my belt to the wedding with me so the dress looked slightly bare (and my waist probably could have used the help haha). Overall, I received lots of compliments on this dress and I would definitely recommend it!!!

Simple but Pretty Gown

Beautiful dress for a black-tie ball. True, pure cherry red with pretty folds at the bodice. Did not come with the black strap pictured on the model, but think it looked better without it. This was a same-day in store rental, so I only had one size to choose from, but was pleased to find that sizes run large and I was able to fit into a size 2R. I'm 5' 8" and around 135 lbs. and the dress zipped perfectly and was only a bit tight in the chest (though most of my weight in my hips, which the dress draped over, so if you have a different build I would consider another size). My only complaint about the size is that the dress is very long--I'm tall for a woman and was wearing 3" heels and the dress still dragged on the floor. As for the looks--the dress was beautiful and got many warm compliments throughout the night for how beautiful it was and how striking the color was, especially against a sea of black gowns. (It also a number of people pointing at it from across the room, which I hope were compliments!). I will say it looks about the price it sells for, it doesn't have the elegance of some beautifully made designer dresses, but for how inexpensive the rental is I would recommend it. It wears and photographs beautifully.

It was an appropriate dress for the event. Long enough, a nice cut around the bust.

I could not wear the belt that came with the dress, but it was still very pretty, and long enough to almost touch the floor, even with heels. The material is heavy enough to drape very nicely over the body. I got a size 4 because i was not sure that a 6 (what I usually wear) would hold around my small chest, but even the 4 was too large and I had to wear the 2.

I rented this dress for a formal event at the Met

The dress is lovely. Very well made. A very basic dress, not a show stopper, but the red made it a little different. I found it to run very small though. I am usually between a 2 and a 4, and the 4 took some serious help to zipper. There was not even room for a strapless bra. But the good part is that dress actually has a built in bra and some boning down the chest. I am a 32 E, so going braless is usually not an option, but this dress held everything in place.

Great color!

I received this dress as a backup because the dress I wanted arrived back to RTR damaged. I didn't need the extra length on this one. I'm 5'8" and wore about 3 inch heels and the dress was just at the floor. The belt really tied the look together. My only complaint is not so much that the top fell down, but that the jelly trim that was supposed to help the dress from falling kept turning over and showing. Also, the pleats on the dress kept kind of crumbling and not laying flat. Overall the dress was beautiful and photographed really well, but that was my only complaint. I wouldn't recommend for smaller busted ladies.

Lady in Red

This was my first time using RTR. The dress is lovely the color was stunning I felt really pretty in it. The regular length was a bit long for my 5'4" stature but I carried it with 5" heels and it just barely touched the floor. It came in great condition well pressed and smelling nicely. The only con was the belts for both the dresses had broken clasps; but that was an easy fix with a safety pin. I was worried how it would all work out shipping the dress to the hotel I was staying at if it would come in time, if it would be in good condition, if it would fit and everything worked out perfectly. Though I do have to say in general I should have expected designer dresses run a tad bit smaller than the norm so I will probably size up for my back up from here on out.

This dress was perfect for an elegant setting. Even among the finery I was complemented all night.

This dress was a little snug, particularly around the waist, but that was good since it was strapless and it made me feel more secure in the fit. The length was perfect with standard heels, though, when you kick them off to dance you'll have to hold onto the end of your dress to avoid tripping. This is a very simple, elegant dress that I would highly recommend to anyone.

Perfect for a formal event!

I wore this dress for a black tie wedding, but I did put my own sparkly belt with it, as the belt that comes with it is quite plain and not stretchy so I was afraid it would come undone while dancing / sitting. The dress is quite fitted in the ribcage/bust so if you are wide in that area, order up a size ( I normally wear an 8-10). Very flowy on the bottom so any shape can fit without problem. I'm 5'4" and the length was perfect, with 4 in heels. So may be too long if you don't plan on wearing high heels. Overall I got a lot of compliments, and it worked well for a holiday themed wedding.

Lots of compliments, but not my favorite.

The dress has no give at all. My boobs were suffocating all night. I did get complimented a ton, though, because it looked stunning. I wore 6 inch heals and it was still ever so slightly long.

Would not recommend.

I ordered the 8R - it was incredibly short (like.. three inches off the ground) and ran so small I couldn't zip it up when it came to the boob area. The zipper itself was so flimsy. I almost wish I took a picture just to show how ridiculous it would have looked on me. Maybe for a shorter person without a full bust could pull this off, but definitely not for me.

Simple and elegant!

The zipper was extrememly stiff and difficult to get on, but once it was on this dress was so perfect for the black tie event i wore it to. It defenitely runs small--i have a tiny chest and the 6 just barely fit around it! Overall i loved the dress!

Awesome dress for lots of dancing!

Such a great dress. I am usually a 4 in dresses, but I ended up with the 6 because the dress is quite tight around the rib cage. Even so, it is very comfortable, easy to sit in, and has just the right amount of flowiness (as in, it looks amazing when you move around and dance, but it is not getting stepped on by other people like many of the other long dresses were).

Grecian, flowy-type feel. Pretty, simple, Understated

This was my back up dress that I didnt end up wearing but still thought was a pretty option. The black belt in the photo did not come with it, so I added my own gold one. I think a crystal belt would be the most pretty for a holiday party. This dress was VERY tight in the bust. Im a 34C-D and it would have been tough to go as corsetted as this made me feel for the whole night...that being said, you could likely still fit into the 2 even with a larger bust. For a girl 5'4" and under I would get the regular or petite length. This was the 2L and it was way too long, even with 4" heels. The skirt part is very flowy and romantic...would be stunning on a woman with a small waist and curvy hips. Very classy, simple and understated.

Great for a Christmas wedding- very happy with my choice!

The dress did not have the black belt shown in the picture, so I had to wear my own. It didn't pull in as much at the waist as I would have liked, but overall, I was very happy to wear this to a Christmas wedding. It does run very long though. It was recommended that I wear the long for my height and even with 2 inch heels I still had to be careful not to step on my dress in the regular.

Dress looked amazing!

The dress was awesome! Very soft for polyester. It was pretty long on me, but I was just careful with it all night. As mentioned in other reviews, it did not come with the belt. Although RTR does have the belts for it. I requested them be sent to me once I got the dress, but the belt did not come in time for me to wear it. I suggest you talk to RTR before you rent this dress to make sure the belts get sent with the dress. Was extremely happy with the result for my first rental. Will rent again!

I love this color, overall it was a great fit! Cons: the regular was a bit too long even with heels.

I was a little worried that I would have to keep pulling the dress up all night, but the top fit wonderfully even for someone lacking in the bust department. I had to call to request that the belt be sent with the dress since others have mentioned that it didn't arrive with their dress, so just something to take note off. As mentioned previously, the regular was a bit long for me, I'm 5 ft 2in, and my heels were about three inches, it was kind of annoying having to pull the dress up to walk but it still looked amazing. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a classy red dress!

Winter Wedding Wonderland

I rented this dress for a December wedding in New York City. I knew I wanted to wear red and this dress came to be BRAND NEW which was a nice surprise. Something to note that the belt is a separate piece so if you wanted to accessorize with a different color belt you totally could! You could also get a pretty broach or something the cover where the belt connects.
