Such a fun, flattering dress!!
I wore this dress to my Senior Prom and I LOVED it! I felt sexy and playful in the dress, and it was so much fun to dance in. I did have to tape the front together, and to my chest, and I didn't wear a bra, but I didn't mind that. I love the color and the hemline. If I ever get the chance to buy this dress, I'm going to jump on it!

Perfect for Valentine's Day
I wore this to a little red dress party. Great fit! I have a shorter torso so the adjustable straps were great for making the dress look perfect! It was frilly, girly, and super comfortable! You may want to get some tape for the crossover part of the dress in the front, especially if you have a larger chest.

Fun dress!
This dress was different, yet I really liked it. I got lots of comments all night! It was large in the chest area so I used body tape to make sure it did not gap. Overall it was a very fun and comfortable dress!

the bottom is fun and flirty, i wore it for valentines day party
top is fitted no room for stretch like the dress might suggest, so around the arms it kind of chafed me a bit. So if you're torso isn't proportional to average size i would suggest getting and extra size to make sure its comfortable.

LOVED
I wore this beautiful dress to a wedding. I fell in love with this dress so badly, that I purchased one in teal a few days later. It is stunning, romantic, and very comfortable. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 only because the delicate fabric had some pulls and signs of wear. Be ready to steam it when it arrives.

Fun dress to wear and move in!
I ordered this dress as an option for my senior homecoming. I ended up wearing another dress, but wore this one out to dinner with friends. It was fun to wear, but the back was super low and impossible to wear a bra. I won't recommend for anyone with a larger chest.

Great birthday dress! You really stand out!
This dress was sexy and fun! It fit perfectly and was the perfect length. I absolutely loved this dress for the color and the flowy feel to it. The cinched waist made the dress very flattering and I would recommend this dress for so many occasions!

Wore all night in complete comfort, with lots of compliments!
I wore this for a humid July wedding, and it was just perfect. The material didn't crease when sitting, and the loose fit was perfect for the weather. The movement of the dress was great for dancing, and looked great in pictures.

Too much fabric on a small frame.
Better for someone taller and maybe with a bigger bust. It swallowed me, even in the smaller size.

A bedsheet a rope might have been better...
The fit is pretty true to size, as it is supposed to be flowing and loose. I found it too be almost TOO forgiving and drowned out my curves. I had people tell me that the dress was nice, but I did not feel as sexy as the picture. I felt like that part in the Little Mermaid where she just becomes human and washes up on the beach and makes a dress out of an old sail and some rope. Unless you are built like a twig and have a supermodel body, I wouldn't suggest it. Maybe my full bust had something to do with it too? I did have a very good strapless bra on though. The only reason I wore it was because I had it shipped down for my cousin's wedding and didn't pack a back up and HAD to wear it, I didn't have time to get a different one or go shopping. I'd upload a pic for you to see, but I hated it so much I hid behind people in pictures :(

Red RED RED! Caliente dress, but not for actually Dancing. :(
First let me start out. I liked this dress, but not as much as one of the other dresses I have rented from here. It was beautiful and super red, the material was light and flowy and looked great when I was just standing there. However, I did have problems with this one. The tie I had was rather wrinkly and I had debated ironing it, but was so scared I would hurt the fabric that I decided to leave it wrinkly rather than risk scorching the fabric. The other problem..I'm not sure if it was because I am tall and skinny? But when I would use this "Salsa dress" for Salsa dancing....HELLO! the people in the chairs around definitely got a good look at the panties I was wearing! 0_0 The front is so light and flowy that it easily lifts up and parts all the way to your waist when you are spun. It kind of killed my Salsa dancing mood. I asked one of my frieinds to confirm my suspicion by sitting while I spun and she said "yes" she could see exactly what I was wearing underneath my dress. So overall, gorgeous for sitting, good fit, true to size, good if you aren't too fancy with your dancing, but very very bad if you live in a windy place or are tall and like to spin while dancing salsa!

The frills on the model's photo make it look kind of strange whereas I loved the dress in person. The color is also a lot brighter, which was another plus.

This was a great dress, eye catching and sexy, yet very comfortable. I loved it!
It fit TTS. Good for evening, because it is a little low cut. I added my own belt. Perfect for a date, wedding, or party.

This dress was perfect for being a sexy Señorita.
This dress is an easy fit, I imagine it flattering all body types. My only con is that the belt was a deeper red than the dress, probably due to dry-cleaning. I got plenty of compliments and felt very sassy in this little red number.

The best dance floor dress around!
The dress was true to size. It was a little longer than I expected, but not in a bad way. One irritating thing was that after a night of dancing, the straps really dig into your skin-- but it was a very fun dress to wear!

Amazing color!
I wore this dress for a circus themed benefit party...it was fun and flirty. I got so many compliments about being the lad in red! I was able to wear a regular strapless bra with this dress, but I do recommend the use of some strategically placed dress tape.

Fun & Flirty
I loved the color and movement of this dress and the cut was very flattering. The only reason I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars is that I felt like it was better suited for a taller person (I am only 5'2). In order to have it fit properly, I had to tie the halter at the neck much more closely than I would have liked, so the neckline did not sit as low as I prefer. It still looked great, but I think it would have been sexier on a taller woman, since more leg would show and the neckline would be lower.

This dress was so much fun and I fit the theme!
I got this dress as my $25 back-up dress. I'm very glad I ended up wearing this fun dress!! The theme of the wedding I attended was Hippie Fiesta (interesting choice), and I ended up fitting right in to the theme. I could easily dance in this dress. I did not feel uncomfortable or worry about sucking in all evening, and received many compliments on how "fun" the dress looked! I loved the amount of movement in this dress. I paired it with snakeskin heels and some simple gold drop earrings and did a ten-minute updo similar to one I saw on Pinterest which was perfect for the dress! I did have to use fashion tape in strategic areas (chest, leg), but that was not a big deal at all. To that note, it is quite short in front and can be dangerous (flashy) while dancing, so I had taped the bottom layer to the front of my thigh and taped down the chest part for good measure.

Very easy to rent as this was my first time and about to drop off in blue USPS box.
Loved the dress online, looks so pretty, flowey, sexy and was easy enough to order. During check out it asked if I wanted a second outfit for $25 so I ordered a jumper for fun however this replaced my free second size dress. I ordered this in an XS and S but the S went away after I got the jumper. It all ended working out because even the XS was too big! The dress hung on my like a hungry baby, did not define my tiny curves and was so light that any small gust of wind and your dairy aire was on display! Only wear this dress indoors! I have long legs and it covered everything well otherwise, def need fashion tape and chicken cutlet bra. This dress is very red, i should have faked tanned before wearing it. Wouldn't rent this one again.

Runs large, size down.
Ordered this dress for a wedding in Small & Medium. I never received the small (which Im sure would have fit great) because whoever rented it before me did not send it back in time. The Medium was swimming on me. The dress was beautiful though. The color was more vibrant in person than photographed.

Hot, hot, hot!
I cannot tell you how much I loved this dress. Perfectly flattering, comfortable, and incredibly sexy. My husband exclaimed, "Ohhh, geez! Now THAT is a hot dress" when he walked into the room. Haha. Unfortunately, I ordered the dress in turquoise and due to a warehouse snafu, only the red was available. Suffice it to say, the red was a bit too spicy for a wedding, so I went with another dress that RTR overnighted to me (very quickly and in two sizes, I might add- wonderful customer service). I had no issue with the side of the dress revealing too much as others have mentioned-- you can tighten or loosen the halter as you please. It is a bit short in the front, but not enough to be distasteful. I fairly certain I will be re-ordering this dress for my first anniversary or Valentine's Day.

Attention getting dress!
This dress got huge attention, mostly because of the color but also because it is a vavavoom type of dress. The XS was just small enough. I am not super small(usually a two or four) so a really tiny person might find this a bit big. Also to get the top to fit right I had to really tie it tight which in turn caused the straps to cut into my neck and annoy a bit through out the night. A small price to pay for a wonderful dress. No bra can be worn so I had to wear pasties.

Some hiccups, but a nice dress
I ordered this dress in XS and S, but I decided to wear the S as the XS came with makeup stains on the bodice area. I used some fashion tape to make sure the front didn't open up since I had to wear the larger size. Both dresses also didn't come with the belts (as pictured on the model) but I wore it without and it still looked great! It really highlighted my toned shoulders and hung very nicely on my curvy hips! I got so many compliments!

Great dress!
This was a great dress! I'm short and was concerned about the length initially but it falls really well and with heels it didn't look too long at all. In the photo I'm wearing wedges because the wedding was on a cliff. For the reception, I changed into bronze colored Gucci heels and they worked perfectly.

All night, strangers came up to me just to compliment this "red hot" dress.
This dress is beautiful and extremely comfortable; the silk material feels like you're wearing nothing. The color was even more vibrant in person and really stood out - so much so that strangers came up to me just to compliment the dress. Fashion tape is definitely a must, though, to keep the crowd from seeing down to your navel when you bend over. Also, make sure you have a backless bra (I used RTR's Nubra) because you won't be able to wear a regular strapless with this dress.

I loved this dress!
I rented this dress to wear for my rehearsal dinner. I loved the way it fit! It was so comfortable. The color was a lot redder than I thought it would be - I was picturing it being more red/orange, but maybe that is due to the colors on my monitor. The sash it came with did not appear to be the same fabric/color as the dress but it was not very noticeable. The back of the dress tended to sag just a bit and showed my bra, so make sure to use some toupee tape to hold the dress in place if you wear a bra with it. I also got the size small as a backup and it was very wrinkly, so I'm glad I could wear the XS. This was my first rental and I love that the rentals come with a complimentary garment bag!

accidentally flashing my tush to the entire dance floor!
I had read the reviews but was surprised by a few things when I received this dress.... (1) It is short in the front! I figured the model was tall (and I'm only 5'2") so it would fall just below my knees but it definitely did not, especially when you walk since it's basically a wrap dress on the bottom; (2) that wrap dress effect makes dancing very dangerous! for a dress that's supposed to be great for salsa, I couldn't spin or really get moving on the dance floor without feeling very exposed! my boyfriend is a great dancer and loves to do all sorts of fancy flips and "death drops", but in this dress we were really limited - on the first flip, the entire bottom of the dress opened up and my tush was exposed to the entire dance floor when I landed! I tried using fashion tape but it didn't help. (3) I don't know if it was the very bright color or the length - it's the mullet of dresses: short in front and longer in back than I anticipated - or all of the ruffles, but I felt like the dress was not quite as classy as I'd hoped, bordering on trashy. Again, it was a fun dress and I received compliments on it but I didn't feel great in it and was glad to return it.....

RTR is completely reliable... I've rented a few times and I have never had any problems!
I rented this dress for a summer city wedding and it was perfect! Very comfortable, fit true to size, and the color is vibrant. I would recommend wearing tape at the chest area if you are going to be outside. I felt so romantic and feminine in the dress, especially when the wind would blow, however I felt somewhat self conscious in the chest area-- so tape is a must :) I would rent this dress again in a heartbeat- I'd love to try out the green!
