Beautiful dress!
Loved this dress! The color is beautiful. I wore it to a black tie event and it was a great choice. Only con is that it is very long. Wear your highest heels! Overall, extremely happy with the dress and RTR!

Great dress that worked perfectly!
I ordered this dress after being invited to the Governor's Ball last minute. I have never rented before but liked the idea of not paying as much but still getting a nice dress and now I recommend this site to everyone and use it any time I have a formal event. This dress fit perfectly, came on time, was super easy to send back. They even sent me some boob tape and other small things to make sure everything stayed where is was supposed to. The dress wasn't too tight, didn't rub wrong anywhere. At 5'6" the 4R was exactly floor length so I wore flats and it touched the floor the way I wanted it to. The red was perfect-not too bright or too deep. I loved this dress!

Beautiful dress for a more formal occasion!
I wore this dress to a winter wedding. Since it was so close to Christmas, I thought wearing a festive red dress would be fitting :) I loved the color and overall look of the dress. It was a little long for my 5'1" frame but I made it work with 3-1/2" heels (still dragged on the floor just a littleeee bit). But other than that it fit well. Also, loved that it came with the belt! I read in another review that the belt didn't come with it so it was a pleasant surprise when I got it in the package. Definitely recommend this dress for any formal event!

If you're short, this dress needs serious heels
I did not wear this dress for my event. I'm 5'3 and with 3" heels, this dress was still too long to wear. The black ribbon waist band does not come with the dress. I think this long, flowy dress would look better on someone taller.

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.

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.

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!!!

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!;)

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.

RTR Customer Service does it again!
I did not get to wear this dress because I was accidentally sent two of my backup size (size 6) which was too large for me. I *could* have worn it, but I would have been pulling it up all night. The dress itself was pretty, nice and flowy, and the length would have worked for me with heels. It was just the fit on the bodice that was too big. Also, the dress didn't come with the black belt pictured. Thankfully, I was able to go into the RTR store in NYC and find a replacement dress, which I ended up loving.

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.

I received loads of complements, so despite the problems, I am glad I could make it work.
I ordered both the 2p and the 4p of this dress. Both came without the black belt and I was very disappointed. However, I still planned to wear the dress. Unfortunately, the 2p, which fit perfectly, had a replacement zipper that was broken. I ended up wearing the 4p, without the belt and even though is was a little big around the bust and too long. I had intended to wear without a bra, but wore a strapless bra and that helped snug it up enough so that I was comfortable. One big issue was the length. I was told by a stylist that, at 5'2", I could wear my 3 inch heals with this dress. It was still a bit too long and I had to constantly be careful not to trip on the hem or tear it. Despite all of the issues, the dress is beautiful.

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.

I wore it to a Navy Ball and it was completely appropriate for the event.
I have a small waist and a large bust so I had to go a size up from normal, but it was perfect for the night. It was incredibly comfortable and I didn't have to tug on it too much. It was perfect that I ordered two sizes and it came the next day after I ordered it. I wish I could buy this dress now. It was amazing.

Gorgeous dress!
I wore this dress to a wedding that I was a reader in. I loved the dress and it looked absolutely stunning. However, I would have ordered the 2P or 4P instead of the 2R. The recommendation for my height (5'2") was regular, but the dress was WAY too long, even with heels. The dress dragged on the floor all night and was hard to walk in. Other than that, it fit perfect everywhere else and I received tons of compliments!

Dark, rich, beautiful color! Stands out!
I wore it to a Dia de los Muertos masquerade ball and this dress matched perfectly with my headpiece, that I couldn't have planned it better! The dress was true to size, but it was a little tight on the upper bust that I had to wear it without a bra. Not sure what an 8 would have been like, but since this was a backup sent; I only had one size available. By the end of the night, the sides of the upper dress were digging into my skin, but the rest of the dress of great. The dress on the RTR shows it with a black belt, but when I received the dress, it didn't come with it. I was able to use one of mine as shown in picture. PS. I also rented the necklace in the picture as one of the pieces they had originally recommended.

The red is bright enough without being overwhelming and it's nice to stand out in a sea of black.
I definitely should have gotten the petite size, but it wasn't available at the time - other than that, the fit was great. There's a bodice inside that keeps everything in place and even though it's strapless, it stayed put.

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.

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).

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.

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.

Lovely backup
I ended up not wearing this one, but it was lovely. The red is gorgeous and it's just a classic strapless dress. The fit was true to size, maybe a tiny bit large. I generally wear anywhere from a 2 to a 6, and the 4R (I also tried the 2R) was the best fit for this one. Not as long as I anticipated - I would consider wearing the 4L if wearing high heels.

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!
I LOVED this dress. The reason why I gave it four stars as opposed to the five is due to the fit. I ordered the 0R and the 2R. Unfortunately, when I tried on the dress at the store, the zipper on the 2R (which fit my bust better) split, and they didn't carry the dress in store. I wore the 0R instead, which fit fine, but the girls did look like they were a bit squeezed in. Other than the bust though, the fit was fine, including the length (wore it with 2.5" heels). Very comfortable, able to dance in it (although the sticky stuff at the top wasn't entirely reliable). But overall gorgeous dress, and I felt beautiful in it!

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.

It was a little long for me personally. I wore average sized heels though, so a taller heel could've been better.

I wore this dress to my husbands Army ball. It was a perfect compliment to his uniform!
This was my back up dress and thank goodness I took advantage of ordering the 2nd one because the first one did not fit at all. I loved everything about this dress. There was no need to wear a bra because of the built in corset which was nice because then I didn't have to fight with a bra falling down the whole night. Could be worn without the belt. My only complaint was that the clasp loop at the top was broken off. I happen to have the exact color thread and stitched a new loop at the top. This could be a problem though for someone who is not crafty or does not have thread available since that hook helps keep the zipper closed and also tightens the top of the dress another 1/4 of an inch. I will absolutely be ordering again!!

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.
