Felt so good in this dress!!!!
Very comfortable, elegant (and sexy) dress! Received so many compliments on it. Fabric was super soft and the fit perfect for me. The front does dip low, so make sure you have the right bra for that (or double sided tape to keep the front from slipping down). I would rent this one again for sure!

This dress is a stunner. Everyone loved it and I got compliments all night long.
I went to a formal Christmas dinner in this dress and it was a show stopper. Sadly, we were caught up in so much talking and dancing that we barely took pictures. The one posted is the only one I could find. The dress runs true to size and length. For sure wear high heels with it, the higher the better. I wore pretty standard heels and the dress sometimes swept the floor. I have a large chest (38D) and this dress made it stand out beautifully. No bra or fashion tape needed in my experience. The plunge is deep, though, so keep that in mind if you're not someone who likes to show a lot of chest. The picture with the model doesn't quite show the slit that splits the dress in the middle, but it's beautiful. Just be careful when you sit because it rides up. Overall the dress was secure, held everything in place, and was BEAUTIFUL Like I said, compliments all night. Plus that red color? To die for.

Stunning dress!
Wore this for a black-tie gala and it was perfect! Dress runs true to size, if not a little big. I am a 36DD and the front showed a lot of cleavage, but not too much. Got tons of compliments! I would say it runs a little short. I am 5'4" and wore heels and it could have been longer for my liking. It is a little awkward to sit it because of the front slit

Sadly, I couldn't wear this dress because it did not fit.
Couldn't wear this one because it was a little too snug over my hips. It's gorgeous, and it drapes beautifully. Bottom-heavy ladies like myself might want to go up a size.

Perfect for the occasion. Know your measurements. Read the dress measurements
The dress worked out perfectly. I was the maid of honor in a wedding where the bride asked me to wear dark red/burgundy long dress. The bride was wearing Halston so this was a no brainer. At 5'8" the website suggested I wear a 10L. After reading the measurements and knowing my own measurements, the 10R was perfect with my 2" heels. I received a bunch of compliments throughout the night from other women at the party. One thing to note, the cape in the back hides any back/butt imperfections so bra/underwear lines are concealed to a certain extent.

Stylist Review
I love the cape on this dress! It is very elegant and classy while still on trend. This style had some stretch so it was very comfortable but I would size up for your back up! I was able to wear a bra with this style but I was nervous of it showing in the front center so you may want to wear a NuBra or one that is for a plunging neck line to be safe. At 5'10", the dress hit by my ankles so I would want to get a long length next time. Pair this style with a necklace and clutch!

Beautiful dress and so comfortable!
The dress fit great. It is a low cut dress so a bra would be hard to wear. I was able to go without and it was still flattering. Love the cape! It helped to keep my arms covered for a chilly NYE night, and it's long in the back so it covers your butt well ;) I was able to wear spanx even with the slit in the front. Overall it was a fun dress, gorgeous oxblood color and so comfortable!

The dress was so beautiful. You certainly need some tape to keep then top in place but fit beautifully. The cape sleeves were great for a winter wedding.

Came through in a pinch
My original rental was not available for the day I reserved it so RTR sent me this one. I was very skeptical at first so I asked for 2 more dresses. After what seemed like hours of deliberation, I went with this. I am glad I did. The color was gorgeous and the fit was extremely flattering. It is very low cut but I was able to wear a non padded plunge bra. It worked beautifully.

Beautiful color! Great for Hamilton.
Very pretty color. It's a true burgundy like a good wine. There is absolutely no stretch so it was tight on my hips because of this it also caused the slit in front to be way more revealing than the stock photo shows. I am a pear/hourglass shape and I would not suggest it for others like me because of that literal no stretch but otherwise it's a beautiful dress. Length was perfect, I was wearing 4 inch heels. The caplet is super fun and very easy to move in

Best Reception Dress Ever
It fit like a glove and accentuated all of my curves and hid my arms which I loved. My only problem was the slit was very difficult to work around. I had on glittery Betsey Johnson heels and they caught on the dress with every step I took.

Loved how modern and sleek this was!
The dress fit true to size! I loved that there was a V in the front and back, yet, my strapless bra still worked totally fine with it. No need for a stick on bra! Could have hugged the body a little more, and one side of the front of the V in the dress was flipping outward a bit (could not fix even by ironing) but it wasn't super noticeable and when I tried the same dress on in the store, I didn't have that problem. I also thought it would be weird to have the slit on the front rather than the side, but I liked it, didn't feel as open/exposed as the ones with side slits often do.

So many compliments
I wore this to a gala where the theme was burgundy and grey. As you can imagine, there were a lot of women in burgundy. Even so, I got so many compliments and this dress truly stood out. I'm a 34DDD but I was able to wear this without a bra (just petals) and it looked great. The slit in the front is pretty high but I just learned how to sit so it wouldn't ride up. The material is pretty forgiving, I wore it without any spanks on (because of the high slit), and it looked great even though I had a baby 9 months ago and would usually need spanks. I would definitely recommend.

It was a tiny big for a 4 but it looked beautiful. I also came down much lower in the front than I expected.

Empress in red
Adored this dress! I felt like an Empress gliding gracefully across the event space. I was working the event I had planned so this allowed for comfort and movement while still looking elegant. I received so many compliments the night of the event and still to this day on my social media posts. This dress will make you look like Goddess. Loved the Japanese inspired cut and the cap that flowed and laid nicely with ease. This was a keeper dress and considering purchase.

Beautiful dress
I will rent this another time. I rented using unlimited and it didn't come in time for my event so I was unable to wear. Color was beautiful, fabric was nice. Some reviews said it had lots of stretch so I ordered an 8 but will order a 10 next time I want to wear it as it pulled a little too tight through the hips.

So lovely!
Great dress. I'm 5'5" and regular length was perfect. Sizing was spot on but I could imagine the dress being a smidge tight around the hips. Make sure to buy some fashion tape to keep the chest where it should be. Loved this dress!

Wow!!
If you're looking for a comfortable, yet stunning dress, THIS IS IT! The color is a beautiful, rich red, the cape is amazing, the slit is sexy and the material is forgiving (no spandx needed!)! However, the dress runs LARGE! I ordered a 2 and 0 (I usually wear a 2 or 4, depending on the style) and the 2 still had room and looked a bit frumpy. I'm happy I followed other renters advise and sized down for my backup!! If you want a snug feel and to accentuate your curves, I highly suggest you size down. If you're 5'4" or shorter, 4" heels are necessary so that the dress doesn't drag. Danced the night away in the dress and it gave me no problems whatsoever! And again, the cape and slit are the true stunners of this dress! Modest, yet sexy! Rent it ladies!

I'm 5'7 but I am glad I wore the 4R size instead of the 4L size recommended in the size chart. The 4R was long enough for 2-4 in. heels.

Elegant Dress
I loved this dress. I'm 5'5 and ordered the L because I had 5 inch heels. The L made the length perfect for that. It was tight and low cut. The middle slit makes it difficult to wear spanx and even underwear are a challenge. I ended up having to wear an adhesive bra as well so that it wouldn't show. I received a lot of compliments and felt good in it however I did not like it in pictures as much

Compliments all night long!
I'm small on top but straight through waist and hips. The 6L fit better on top but was not as forgiving through the middle and hips so I wore the 8L. With 4" heels the 8L was perfect length. Gorgeous dress and I felt beautiful in it!

My favorite rental so far!!
Wore this dress to the Liberty Ball in Philadelphia and I had several people stop me and ask where I got my amazing dress from! The dress fit true to size, it does have a plunging neckline but nothing inappropriate. I didn't wear a bra nor did I need to wear fashion tape. Rent this dress, you will not regret it! I hate that I have to send it back!!

Amazing Gown
This gown was perfect for a black tie wedding. So gorgeous and classic! I was so sad to send it back. Felt very comfortable for a long night, too. I chatted with a RTR stylist to determine heel height for this gown, and her recommendation was perfect! I'd love to rent this again!

I rented this dress for my sister-in-law's wedding. I received SO many compliments!
When I rented this dress, I was a little concerned about the high slit and what undergarments would work best. I would recommend pasties and garment tape to keep the top in place. It was a little difficult to sit because of the high slit, but it was absolutely worth it! Such a fun dress to wear and it photographed beautifully. I wore the regular length because my heels were not very high. It was perfect for black tie optional wedding in the cold Chicago winter!

Perfect fit at 8 months!
I rented this for a gala while 8 months pregnant. This dress was so incredibly comfortable and held everything in including my new very large chest. I sized up from my usual 0/2 to a 6 and the fit was perfect. The length for the regular worked with 3 inch heels.

Amazing dress for those with a baby bump!
I wore this dress to a gala for my husband's grad school. I was initially nervous about finding something that would work with my 6 month pregnant belly, but this dress was perfect! It was form fitting without being too much, the length was great for a 4 inch heel, and I didn't even need to wear a bra (just used a bit of fashion tape to keep things in place!)

In a sea of black dresses, this one really stood out...
This was my first RTR rental so, I wasn't sure what to expect. I liked the dress and felt good in it, but I gave it four stars because it seemed as though the front slit had been damaged and when they fixed it, they didn't line up the material just right so there was a bit of a "pucker" that made it hang a little funny. It wasn't real noticeable and I received tons of compliments on the dress. Everyone loved the color. As far as the fit, I don't consider myself to be very "bustie" (36C - small C) but as you can see in the photo, it kind of made me look that way. For me personally, I felt a little uncomfortable with that and wish that I would have had some more coverage. I'm usually a 2 or 4 and I decided on the 2L because the length was perfect and even being the smaller size it didn't feel tight - Plenty of room to eat, drink and enjoy yourself. I loved the drama of the cape. The dress is pretty and unique, both coming and going (front and back). Overall, I'm happy I selected it!

This dress was PERFECTION
This dress fits true to size. I ordered a size 8 due to the reviews and pictures posted by the other women who wore this dress; and got a size 6 as a back up just in case. The size 6 fit like a glove, it is very comfortable. No undergarments were necessary I danced the night away feeling as good as I looked.
