Sexy, great rich-red dress, which made for a great Cupid costume
I rented this dress in both a 4 and a 6, but ended up wearing the 6 to have a lil more give in the waist (I have the world's slightest hourglass waistline) since the length and fit in the bust seemed the same. The lace pattern is really flattering, and the dress is overall pretty date-worthy.

Loved it but didn't wear it
This fit very true to size and hugged in all the right places. I didn't wear this because it was my backup but I would definitely rent this again.

Flattering fit!
The dress fit great- I'm usually a 4, but some dresses fit odd because I have a short torso. This dress was perfect! Super comfortable and flattering!

Great fit. Very flattering cut.
Wore this dress for a Christmas party and received many compliments. The narrowing of the lace at the waist was very flattering. Also rented some great accessories too. Only con was the dress had a small flaw. I was still able to wear it.

Loved the color and feel of the dress.
Dress has some stretch to it but is not so form fitting that you see everything. You do need to wear the right underwear though as some underwear would show through the fabric. The fabric is comfortable for dancing all night in. I had a slight problem with my bra trying to peak out of the top of the dress but nothing that double sided tape couldn't fix. The placement of the black lace makes you look smaller. Good rental!

Great material and perfect length for a tall girl.
I originally ordered a size 2 and back up size 4 because I thought it might be a bit tight based on other reviews. However, both were too big. I called the 1800 number and it was incredibly easy to get a size 0 shipped in time (I did have to pay $13 for shipping). My original order did come in early but the second shipment could have been overnighted had I needed that. The dress is beautiful and the material is very flattering. I have a small waist and bigger hips so the 0 was the tiniest bit loose in the waist and very form fitting in the hips. I added my own black belt to help bring it together and it worked great.

Hugs your curves!
Rented a size 6 for a trip to Vegas for a friend's 30th bday. It fit like a glove, with enough room for my super-duper-push-up bra from Victoria's Secret. Loved this dress! I am somewhere between an athletic and hourglass figure but this dress was stretchy where needed, and it wasn't loose in any areas. My husband appreciated that the lace framed my boobs nicely, haha! Loved this dress and would totally rent it again!

The dress is very pretty. It was a little tight on me. My husband thought it looked great.
The dress was a little tighter than I was expecting around the stomach and waist. Since it was a January wedding I wore tights underneath which made it a little snug. Very pretty style.

This dress is gorgeous!! It is well made and very figure flattering. I felt sexy AND classy!
RTR was a pleasure to do business with. This was my first rental, and I was very pleased with this dress. The lace cap sleeves are gorgeous, and the lace detail on the bodice really cinches the waist. Not to mention, the red color is sexy and vibrant!

Sexy, comfortable, great color!
This dress runs just a tad bit large. The 4 fit well but the back (on top) was baggy. I wore this for a night on the town in Vegas so the smaller, more fitted option worked best. It has just the right amount of sexy as its tight and is in a color that pops. Than and wash to wear.

The fit of this dress was great! It was perfect for my company's holiday party. It didn't bunch or fit too tightly in any area. All around great and sexy dress!

Never been referred to as "hot" until this dress. Just sayin! :) a little loose in shoulders
A little loose in the shoulders and spanx were required for me, but my problem area is the "pooch". Overall a great dress and not too long (I'm 5"1ish). Fun rental. RTR is always easy and fun. Lots of compliments all night.

When my daughter saw me come out of my room she said I looked like just like a princess!
I loved this dress! The material was good quality. It was not too thin/flimsy. My only MINOR complaint is that the clasp from the zipper got caught in my hair a few times. It got caught bc the top of the dress fit me a little bigger than the rest so the (top) back buckled a little bit when I moved a certain way. Again, this was a MINOR complaint I had. I got several compliments on the dress and felt like a million bucks throughout the night!

Nice dress, but a poor choice for my body type.
I usually wear fit-n-flare dresses to hide my belly. Took a chance on a new style, and it wasn't super flattering.

The dress was a showstopper with the red color and black lace
The dress hangs a little funny on my curves. It didn't lay perfectly flat and I had to adjust if frequently so a little bit of my bra wouldn't show on the sides. Other than that, I loved it and I got compliments on it.

Beautiful dress but could've been better
I wore this for a wedding and while it was beautiful and the fabric was high quality, I felt the fit was off. Though it could've been from being worn so many times previously, the waist was not fitted. It bunches in a strange way in the stomach area but was fitted everywhere else. Though I didn't love it, I didn't hate it either. I just don't think I would rent again.

The amount of compliments I received was an amazing feeling! Every1 wanted 2 know where it was from
The fit was great. It made my boobs look very small in a regular bra, so thank god for Victoria Secrets bombshell bra! Had just enough stretch in my hips and legs so that it was comfortable but still "sexy". Recommend wearing Spanx or something with no seams underneath. Tried to wear my normal compression shorts but you could see all the seams. Also could not wear my rhinestone embellished bra because you could see all the stones. I highly recommend this dress! Will probably rent again for a future wedding. I was sooo comfortable and confident! Great dress!!!

Just didn't work for me
Was tight around my hips and loose in the shoulders. Also the lace was frayed at the edges - not sure if it's supposed to be that way, but I thought it looked a little sloppy.

It gives the optical illusion of a great waist.
I found that my typical size, an 8, was clinger than I prefer. Even with the 10, I found that the material showed what was underneath (ie the seam of my panty hose). From afar however, the dress is great. My friend ended up borrowing my back up size for another night. Both of us are athletic/straight and narrow types and it made us look very curvy.

Fun and flirty holiday dress!
I ordered both the 0 and the 2. The 2 have more breathing room overall, but the shoulders of the dress were too big. I went with the 0 and felt comfortable all night. I did safety pin my bra straps to the inside of the dress so they wouldn't be seen. Overall a fun dress to wear! I got so many compliments and felt amazing!

Received compliments all night!
I rented both size 2 and 4 as I am often in between the two sizes in the bust. The 4 fit although a little big in the shoulders and not as shapely. My boyfriend preferred the 2 as it hugged my figure nicely. The lace inserts gave the appearance of a smaller waist which is always nice. The dress was very comfortable to wear as the fabric has some stretch to it. The only problem was a very small hole at the seam underneath the zipper but nothing a safety pin couldn't fix. The color was great for a Christmas party and I received compliments all night long. Would definitely rent again!

Perfect for a Christmas party!
The size 2 was a little too sexy, so I wore the 4 to a work Christmas event. Dress quality was good, fabric pinched a little around the bust but gave me curves in all the right places! Looked great!

Dress was a tad big on top so if you have a small bust this would not be a good dress for you. I felt the rest of the dress fit true to size. The material is stretchy and fits curves very nicely!

Loved it!
I absolutely loved this dress. I wore it to a Christmas party and got so many compliments. The black lace on the sides is very slimming and the dress itself is extremely flattering. Felt great all night! I rented both an 8 and a 10 but went with the 10 because it was a little more comfortable.

Surprised by the number of compliments.
The dress slides up a bit as you walk, but nothing a minor tug on the side doesn't fix. Also had to tuck the straps of my bra in so that it didn't show. Black bra would have made it less noticeable.

Great dress
This was a stylist chosen backup as my original backup became unavailable. To see it on the hanger , I honestly wasn't crazy about it, but still tried it on....to my surprise, it looked amazing on! I already have curves but wow!! Accentuated them and the lace is very flattering. My original dress worked out so I didn't end up wearing this one, but I would definitely consider renting again as a first choice.
