true color to picture, really like the bodice part and shoulder. looks great on small chests and fitted. wish the waist was either a little lower or the skirt longer actually - didn't look bad, just something was slightly off. skirt hits accurate in the model picture. could get staticy. dress has pockets!

We throw an annual holiday party at our house every year. This year, I picked this dress and it was perfect. It fits true to size and is very flattering. The color is beautiful. It may be difficult if you have a large chest, as that area provides a snug fit. If you run small or average in your bust, then you can wear the dress with no bra and no one would know. I wore the dress with black tights, with a little design, and my Hunter boots (so I could run around the house).

I always wanted to have that "Julia Roberts in 'Pretty Woman'" moment (who could forget her red dress?) With this dress, I definitely had that feeling. There are so many shades of red out there, but this red is flattering on most anyone. The silk in the skirt flows beautifully...perfect for a festive party. I have a medium bust and was worried that the smaller sizes would be too snug there (as some of the reviews suggested), but I was surprised at how great the 0 fit. Received many compliments. It's the ultimate holiday cocktail dress!

This dress looked and felt fantastic. The dress arrived with a zipper that was not working properly. I zipped it up all the way, was trying on shoes and all of the sudden the zipper split from the middle. Luckily I was able to get it to a tailor to get that situation fixed, which didn't take much time at all. It does run small. I'm very small up top and the size 0 left practically no room in the dress to move.

An amazing dress complimented my amazing night at my engagement party!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I was very worried about this dress fitting based on all the reviews I read. I believe that it does run about true to size, I am a size 2 or 4 and the size 4 fit perfectly. The material does NOT stretch whatsoever, so Im guessing thats why people say it runs small. There was like a 2 inch section on the zipper that was a little difficult to get past, but once the dress was zipped it fit perfectly, and was comfortable. The color is awesome and this dress is perfect for a small to medium chest. I am a 34 B and I didn't wear a bra and it was perfect. Any chest larger might be a little tough. I wore this to my engagement party and got a lot of compliments and it looked great!

Meeting the NY Rangers was amazing. My husband continually saying how beautiful I looked was perfect. :)

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I absolutely loved this dress! I wore it for a NY Rangers charity event, and I got a ton of compliments. It was the perfect mix of short cocktail fun and classy sophistication. The red is an awesome bright color and really stands out. I guess it's a bit small on top (I fit into a 6 in my back-up Halston confetti dot dress), but it wasn't terribly small. I was concerned because they didn't have a 10 available, but no need! This dress is perfect for pear shapes -- I'm a 6/8 on top and a 10/12 on bottom. It felt a tad short without tights (especially since it's so flowy) -- I liked it with black tights, but it was better with neude for me. Pairing with large earrings made the outfit. RENT THIS DRESS! :) If you are between sizes, as most women are, go with the higher one.

I ordered this dress for a sorority formal last November. The color is true to the picture and I would agree that the fabric provides no stretch. Regardless of the fabric, the dress was comfortable and allowed me to dance freely. The bodice detail is absolutely fantastic! I received many compliments throughout the night. Perfect dress for my event!!!

i anxiously anticipated the arrival of the dress, and i was not disappointed! the dress was SPECTACULAR! it's a gorgeous red, the silky material is soft and flowy, and overall, it's just an amazing dress. however, it is a bit snug on top, so anyone with a larger chest may have trouble fitting into it. the dress fell to just above my knees, but it was so flattering. i'm also short-waisted, so i had to use some of the complimentary fabric tape to pull up one side of the dress. the fabric (since it's 100% silk) also gets very static-y but as long as you're careful there shouldn't be any problems. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS DRESS. i wanted to keep it! it's just that amazing. i recommend this dress to everyone! i had so much fun wearing it!

"I just can't get over how amazing you look."

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was so beautiful. The fabric is beautiful and the skirt is so flowy and twirls easily. I personally feel that the placement of the shoulder strap is a little bit strange, but that's just my taste. I loved the way the fabric was twisted in the upper part. I wore this to my high school prom and it was great to dance in. I received a number of complements and one person told me that she "couldn't get over how good [I] looked." I usually wear a 2 and that size fit me perfectly, but I also have a very small chest. The 4 was barely any bigger than the 2. Overall, fantastic experience.

I cannot say enough good things about this dress. It was absolutely gorgeous and was loved by everyone, including my hubby. My chest is smaller so the size 6 was snug, but flattering. Anyone with a larger chest probably wants to go up a size. The dress itself was comfortable, beautiful red color and had pockets (welcome surprise!) I was the belle of the ball. Thanks RTR!

Someone I don't know very well said "You look stunning!"

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is comfortable to wear. I'm sort of a pear/hourglass and so it was perfect for accentuating a smaller waist while hiding bigger hips. I could have also worn the size 10, but it didn't flatter as much as the 8. There was very little difference in the sizing between 8 and 10. The color is so vibrant. It did make me look a tad flat chested, just because of the pattern of the rouching. Overall a terrific choice for a fun, formal dress.

Overall the dress is really comfortable and low-maintenance. The bodice fits snugly and is true to size, while the flowing skirt is fun to dance in (although it may tend to make pear shaped bodies look a little wider). The red is more of a crimson, making it a great color for Christmas Parties.

This dress is simple, classy, and sexy! Had several people stop me to tell me how beautiful and elegant I looked that night. Def a night to remember! Dress fits perfect! But make sure you arent underestimating your size because the dress does not stretch! I wore a thin black belt with gold buckle so that I could incorporate gold and black accessories. I loved the dress personally and rent the runway shipped on time and contributed to making my night special! Enjoy chicas! (22nd B-day dinner).

The color of this dress is fantastic as was the fit. I wore the 6 and it was perfect - maybe a little tight in the waist but the flaring of the skirt hid any imperfections (in my body and the dress!). Received a ton of compliments. Very comfortable to wear.

I ordered my second size a size up (because other reviews said it was very tight) but it was very large on me. I'd say it was true to size. ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL DRESS. The color is a christmas-red and the fabric was comfortable, flirty and easy to dance in. There was also no static at all. At 5'1, I felt it hit the perfect length on me- a couple inches above the knee. Overall the dress made a stellar impression and I would certainly rent it again.

Wore this dress to a black tie optional philanthropy event and got compliments all night - many saying it was the best dress there. Fabulous dress for dancing (I hope you like to twirl!) and such an amazing color -- the perfect red. The bodice is VERY form fitting, but that makes it easy to go braless for those of us that have that option. If you are more endowed I would definitely suggest sizing up. I wore this with sheer black tights, black suede pumps and equally red lips.

I was nervous when renting this dress because all the reviews had said that it was a little snug up top. I'm definitely going to say that is true! I am a 34C and about 130lbs, but this dress still fit very nicely! I got tons of compliments all night and it was sexy and fun without being too over the top for a work Christmas party. I'm so glad I went with this dress! The zipper took a little work to get done up, but once on it was a little snug but not tight. I wore this dress as shown in the picture, with black tights, black pumps, a chunky sparkly bracelet and earrings to match. Loved this dress and it really is the perfect red for a holiday party.

Color was great, style looks good on someone with slim curves.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small

The top smooshed my boobs, so there was "cleavage" coming out from the armpit area (I'm a 32C-D). With the right hairstyle, this could be hidden -- yet it was a hassle. The fabric will not stretch. It was a bit tough to zip up. The top is VERY slim cut - the size 2 felt like a 00. I think this is a good fit for B cup, C and above are risking it. Also, the side with the strap is cut deeper than at the shoulder -- so the armpit area is a bigger than a normal sleeveless cut. The skirt started a little above my waist, was very fitted here, and flared out to about 3 inches above my knees (I'm 5 3). Wind and spins on the dancefloor can be dangerous for this skirt - so wear appropriate undergarments.

Since I am only 5'3", the skirt came to just above the knees. The bodice was perfectly fitted and it stayed put while dancing despite being a one shoulder style. The skirt was very flouncy and great for twirling! I thought the overall look was very flattering. I recommend wearing it with gold shoes, it really makes the red dress pop!
