Lovely scarlet gown.
Ordered this for a military ball. This gown arrived brand new with tags. Beautiful shade of red. Fitted in bust and torso. Only needed my Nu bra. I would think any other kind of bra would be obvious. There is a slit in the front, middle of gown that comes to just above the knee. Accented with gold accessories that I already had on hand. What a great RTR experience!

Lady in Red
The dress flows beautifully. If you feel you have any tummy at all, the dress hides it so well. Lots of compliments.

Beautiful..but not very form-fitting!
Loved this dress, it was a replacement for one that wasn't available for the time I needed and ended up being a pretty good backup. The color was bright and bold and the fabric was good quality. It does run a big large, especially in the upper body and the waist. I was hoping it would cinch in more but it was pretty loose. The v-neck is also pretty low cut, more than it looked on the model in the photo. I wore this for an engagement shoot and received many compliments but I did have use a ton of double-sided tape to make it work.

Good for the tall girls, but not form fitting!
This dress was a backup, as the original dress was too short. I'm 5'8," and wore five inch heels so I was 6'1" total and it still drug on the ground, which I find very difficult to find. However, I had to wear a bombshell bra and there was still too much fabric in the chest area. If you don't have very large breasts, I say don't go for this. It was very low and loose and there was no amount of tucking and padding that could fix it. But besides the boobage issue, it was very flowy and satiny. I also have wide hips and a big butt and the bottom was not tight so if that's an issue for you then this would be a good one. I would recommend it for curvy girls for sure, but it did not work well for my body type

The fit was very true to size, I'm 5'7" and was pleased with the regular length that I wore with 3" heels.

Nice dress but...
This dress ran pretty large. It also gave a very princess vibe that I wasnt going for. I ended up wearing another dress I got as a back-up.

My favorite RTR yet
The fit was perfect, fabric amazing, not too revealing but still intriguing. Was the hit of the night. My favorite of all the dresses I've rented. Amazing because I could wear a bra.

I use RTR for every ball and I've never had a bad experience!
I loved this dress so much and it is even prettier in person! It was a little tight in the bust but only because I always wear a 2 and it wasn't available at the time I needed it!

Gorgeous red gown for a Mardi Gras Ball!
The dress is so comfortable. I thought the slit right in the middle would be weird but it was fine. I'm small chested but it fit quite well up too, definitely a lot of cleavage potential in this dress. I'm thinking I could have liked the longer version, cause the regular was a tad short. I am 5'7" for reference. Great dress overall!

Rent. This. Dress.
I was BEYOND happy with this dress. After reading reviews from girls with larger chest areas, (I wear a 34 H) I was intrigued to see if this dress really was okay to wear a regular bra with. Let me just say, the amount of compliments I received that night proved that this dress is worth all the hype!

This dress is a showstopper.
Rented this for a black tie wedding at a public library. As someone who rarely wears red, and would never typically go for a gown with a slit--10/10. The slit down the middle wasn't awkward at all, however all you needed to show it off during photos was a little tug. The fabric has such a soft, buttery satin feel to it--and includes sheer panels from the waist down, which lends a great "swishy" feel to it. It really flows when you walk. Short and/or small-chested ladies beware: the dress itself as well as top straps run a tad long. I am just over 5'3" and wore 3" heels, but had to hold up the dress for a good part of the night. Also needed some fashion tape to keep the top part in place, but that was just me. Overall: RENT THIS DRESS!

This dress made walking into a room feel like all eyes were on me
Fit was great! If you are bustier like myself I was not able to wear a real bra. I did pasties and it worked great! So many compliments! Wish I had gotten a better picture of myself in it but it was very flattering. The dress is pretty long so with a higher heel probably easier to walk in without bunching up the dress in hand, besides that, LOVED IT!

Love it so much!!! Such a great fit, only down side is that the fabric seemed a little worn but nothing anyone else would pick up on. 9/10 would recommend. Beware there is a slit! I didn't realize that when I rented it but you can't really tell!

Beautiful color! Very comfortable.
This dress was a gorgeous red. I felt it needed a little glamour for the formal event so I added the belt. The cut on the chest was beautiful and sexy. It also had a slit the looked great!

Look awesome, feel amazing
This dress fit perfectly and was extremely comfortable. I was even able to wear without a bra. Got a ton of compliments, and felt fantastic in it. And this is not something I would traditionally wear. At 5'4" it was a bit long for me, even in heels. So just make sure to gather the skirt and lift it up if you're walking far or climbing stairs.

I wore this for my husbands Warrant Officer Graduation Reception and the compliments were never ending! The dress is comfortable and you are able to wear a bra (low plunging bra) unfortunately I didn't think of that until after the fact (oops) but overall the experience was a good one!

So many compliments!!!
This was my first RTR rental and I always thought it was nice when people mentioned being complimented but wasn't sure that was always the case - WOAH so many compliments !! People stopped me multiple times during the wedding Probably the only con is the length I'm 5 ft 10 and wore 2 inch heels and the regular was still just barely off the ground I think it ran large because I'm normally a 10 and the 8 was loose around the waist I adore this dress and highly recommend you rent it too!!

Perfect fit!
This was my 5th prom so I decided I didn't want to spend hundreds on another dress I would never wear again, and one of my friends recommended RTR. This dress fit perfectly! It hugged all my curves nicely and showed off the right amount of cleavage without being inappropriate for a high school dance. The color is beautiful and it flows comfortably due to the slit in the middle. I am 5'7 and wore 5inch heels that left the dress hanging an inch or so off the ground. I wish I had another reason to wear this dress! Came exactly on time and made the experience stress free.

Great for a formal wedding
I rented this dress for a formal wedding. It is a beautiful dress that looks even more amazing in person. I received a lot of compliments. I will say that when the dress arrived it looked very worn: the hem was completely out, there was what appeared to be a permanent white stain on the dress, lots of snags in the material, and the material around the zipper had clearly been repaired multiple times. I still decided to wear the dress because I loved it so much but I wish that it didn't look as worn. (Thankfully the dress doesn't look too worn in the pictures!) Also I would suggest going down in size. I'm normally a 4/6 (closer to the 6 side) and as you can see the 2L fit just fine.

Beautiful Dress
I LOvED this dress! It was beautiful but for a 0P the straps were a little two long. I had to keep fixing them. I have a small chest So I had to wear a bra to make it work. The dress was also too long for me with 4.5 inch heels but that's normal for my height.

So comfortable and flattering!
This dress fit like a glove and I was getting compliments all night long. I'm 5'3, 140 lbs and usually wear a 6. I got the 6R and 4R but since I'm smaller on the top and this dress is sort of A line, the 4 worked better. The length was perfect but I had on pretty high heels (4-5in) so I would recommend getting the shorter length if you are short and plan on wearing a shorter heel. I was also able to wear a regular bra but it did peek out a bit throughout the night. Overall I loved this dress and wish I owned it!

Favorite dress yet!
This dress was perfection! The color was stunning and it had the most beautiful skirt, I spun and twirled all night. I was nervous about the top being too low cut as I am a 34DD but it worked perfectly, showed just enough to be tasteful. I felt great in this dress, favorite rental so far. Highly recommend!

Cut not for me
I felt very medieval in this dress. This rooted from the straps being too long and too much of my chest showing. Issues with straps are common for me, so I'm not all that surprised this didn't work. I recommend sizing down if you are not broad in the shoulder area. I am 5'6 and the dress was still quite long with 3' heels. It is a beautiful dress; the fabric moves very nicely and there's a slit in the front which facilitated movement and also showed a hint of skin while still being classy. It's a beautiful dress, unfortunately just not for me.

Beautiful gown, beautiful venue for a D.C. company formal.
Gorgeous dress! Well made and a showstopper for sure. Prior reviews are accurate in that it does run large-- I wore my backup size 2, though I'm usually a 4. The straps are also long, and as someone with small shoulders, they did occasionally slip down. However, the overall effect here is beautiful- the color, the full pleated skirt, and the length- I got compliments all night. I wore it with 4 inch heels and the length was perfect (I'm 5'5"). Good first experience with RTR- I definitely did not want to send this dress back.

I rented this dress for a formal anniversary shoot with my husband and it is a STUNNER!
I usually wear a 4L and it was a bit too big in this style so I wore the 2L and it fit perfectly. I LOVE that you can wear a normal bra with it. I wore flats and it was a bit long but not an issue. The skirt is so flowy and I felt very sexy in it. The color may have a bit more orange in it than the website shows, but still a very pretty red. Loved this rental!

Stunning, Movie Star Dress!
This dress was amazing! I felt like a movie star in it, and got tons of compliments. Unfortunately, I didn't get any full-length photos :( But I hope my review will still help for someone with a similar body type. I am a petite but very busty lady (32G) and I definitely should have ordered a 2 instead of a 4. I was hoping to not have to wear a bra with it, but the 4 didn't give me enough support... so if you're busty and would like to do the same, I would maybe order a size down. On the bright side, it's super easy to wear a bra with this dress! The color is so gorgeous in person, and the cut of this dress was so flattering on my hourglass figure. I feel like the fitted top but loose bottom really helps to hide any problem areas. The skirt has SO MUCH fabric which makes it really flowy and dreamy, but it was definitely wayyy too long. I'm 5' 2" and I was swimming in a regular, even with super tall heels. There's a really sexy slit up the front of the dress that I adored. This was my first order from RTR and I gotta say.... I shed a tear when I had to send this dress back!

Wore this for Mardi Gras and was sad to see it go. Looked very classy, but was comfortable, a great fabric, flowy. Wore a size smaller because its loose on the hips, which made it easy to dance and enjoy. Wish every dress fit this great!

Comfortable, classic, gorgeous. Ran a bit large so we were glad for the smaller back up size, but it was just right! My daughter wore this to her Senior a ball and when I asked her what the best dress of the night was, she immediately said, "mine!"

HUGE hit! Loved it to pieces and back, only downside was it was pretty long.
This dress was absolutely beautiful! In hindsight I probably would've gone down a size and gotten a petite, just because it was a little lose around the waist and about 3 inches too long in 3 inch heels. The color of the dress is amazing and vibrant. The chest was a little loose for me but still secure and not exposing too much. I got compliments on this dress all night, the biggest drawback was that I couldn't walk unless I picked up the whole hem. Definitely consider a petite or ordering a size smaller than you normally wear if you're in the under 5'4" gang, but don't let it deter you from this beautiful dress.

I am just under 5'9 and the dress was barely long enough with a 3.5 inch heel. Works better for those of us with larger chests. Can be worn with or without a bra!

I felt so glamorous!
I originally ordered the 6R but ended up going with the 4R as it fit better around the ribs! At 5"8in with 3in heels, the length was perfect and the dress floated just above the floor! My only challenge was that it was a little busty, but I am also 32DDD so that is a hard problem to avoid, but it was also very supportive and I didn't need to wear a bra. The color and fit were great and made for an awesome evening!

Great for busty women!
I ordered this dress for a recent gala. The dress is beautiful! I was happy to find it because I was able to wear a bra underneath, which is important to me as a 34G. The dress moves beautifully, which doesn't convey in the photos. The skirt is a mix of the shiny fabric and a sheer, stretchy fabric that gave it more depth. The slit in front is sexy, but not high up enough to be risqué. My only issue was length. The 10 was only available in a regular, and the dress hit the ground even in my 4" heels (I'm 5'3"). It worked well enough when I stood still, but was a bit of a challenge while walking. Overall, I highly recommend this dress, especially for my fellow busty ladies.

Pure perfection
I rented this dress for a military ball and was absolutely gorgeous. I got compliments from everyone all night. I felt like a princess the entire time I was wearing it. The dress arrived on time and the size 6 fit perfectly. I had to wear 4 inch heels since I'm short and the dress was still a little too long. The dress also has two pieces under the straps to loop your bra straps around so they don't end up falling down the whole night. That was a really nice plus for me since I don't like wearing strapless bras or the sticky boobs bras. I would recommend this dress and service to anyone who needs a stunning dress for a formal event. I will definitely be renting from Rent the Runway again in the future.

This dress was amazing! Very flattering and flowy
I am usually between a 6-8 and the 6r was perfect. You can wear a normal bra or go without. I wore one for some lift (I'm a 34C). The slit in the middle isn't too crazy, it allows the dress to flow nicely and makes going down stairs easier. Very comfortable and got a ton of compliments.
