LOVED this gown
Got SO many compliments on the gown. Super comfortable and easy for a black tie affair or even cocktail. Straps were a little long and overall a little big, but really loved it.

Epic Dress! Felt like I was in a dream.
This dress is incredible! I wore it for an engagement shoot. It lays well on the body and moves even better. Unfortunately the dress seemed to have a stain on it when I received it, but luckily it didn't show in my engagement photos. There were also a few repairs on the dress from a previous renter. Again, these repairs did not show up in my pictures. There was a good amount of wind where we were taking our pictures and this coupled with the amazing amount of fabric made the dress look so theatrical. I couldn't have asked for a better dress. Length was good for my height. Be aware that there is a giant slit that will reveal your legs when you walk. Also, be prepared to use Hollywood tape to keep your girls from getting too exposed. You can definitely wear this dress sexy or more conservative depending on how you use your tape. Not for busty women. Favorite rental ever!

Show stopping red. Enough said. Everyone loved it and I honestly didn't want to return it.
Only con was getting the double sided tape and dress to lay correctly.

Pretty dress, was too big!
Loved the brilliant red color. Well made dress. Sadly, at the last minute, RTR did not have size Small anymore, so they sent Medium, which was too big - there was a big gap where the zipper is, the back hung off of me. Also seemed like whoever wore it before me should have been in a Large, as the fastener was really stretched out! The dress is probably very true to size though, as I usually wear a 4 or 6, and the Small probably would have fit well. I could not wear it but it is a gorgeous dress!

Goodness
This is an awesome dress, loved the fitting and the vibrant color (exactly like in the picture). Is a very simple dress but fits very well and the skirt is so glamour and flows so beautifly. My only problem was that the dress was very dirty at the bottom of the skirt and with many many lil holes on it. Since it has a lot of textil I could wear it without people noticing but is not the best experience.

This was the most amazing dress! The compliments were pouring in!
I'm 5' 7" and weight 138 lbs and have an athletic body and small chest so v-necks and halters work best on me and show off my best attributes. This dress was perfect for a summer wedding. No need for a bra- just tape and petals and your good to go. I'm a true 6 in most dressed but this ran a little small around the ribs so the M worked perfect. Everything fit amazingly and the best part? I noticed a slight tear in one of the straps when the dress arrived and RTR shipped a entirely new size to me the next day to my hotel! I was so impressed with the service from beginning to end. Picture to follow!

The back is a total WOW factor
The dress is definitely made for the 'average' woman (height-wise). I am 6 feet tall so the dress was a tad short on me (which I knew from reading the reviews). I wore flat sparkly ballet slippers which was for the best as my formal event involved a lot of standing! I have a smaller chest, which was perfect for the front. I wore tape, and the heaviness of the fabric helped to keep everything in place. The whole thing was really show stopping. Several people commented on my dress and necklace selection. Unfortunately, all my photos are blurry!

The color is amazing...the dress is very comfy (once you get the top taped/secured so you don't show anything extra off). I loved it and I wanted to keep it.

Lovely color
The only problem is it runs a little large. The cleavage is pronounced, so you have take care of how to solve the bra problem.

Being stopped and complimented by people you don't even know makes you feel great! I've never felt more confident..
I rented this dress for a summer wedding. I rented the small and the medium as a backup but the small was unavailable so I took my chances with medium and it worked out with a little pinning in the back at the waist. I felt wonderful in this dress. People were stopping me all night long to compliment the dress. One person commented on how confident I looked.. I have this dress (and some very strategically placed garment tape and petals) to thank for that confidence.
ClareSeptember 6, 2012
Did you also rent your necklace from rtr? I think it looks great with the dress!
RTR CustomerSeptember 19, 2012
Hi Clare! If you like Melissa's look, we recommend wearing the Bea Necklace by Dannijo!

I received so many compliments on the dress and the necklace combination! I did not want to leave by the end of the night because I did not want to take off the dress !
I don't want to return it! This dress was so perfect. I wore it to an outdoor wedding in Malibu. I also rented the pink necklace the model is wearing in the picture- it went so great with the style and color of the dress. The color is a little more coral than red, which I really liked- so you're not wearing a candy red dress -- I felt first like red may not be the best for a wedding- so the lighter color was great. The dress is also the perfect material, and there is a lot of it so it hangs so beautifully. It was really hot outside but this dress kept me cool. Get this dress now!!

Totally in love
I ordered this dress months ago for our best friends wedding because I wanted something special that would stand out. Reading the reviews I was worried the MR wouldn't fit and so was upset when the SR backup wasn't available. Luckily this fit perfectly and was totally stunning. The groom's dad even said I looked like a Greek Goddess! Totally recommend, beautifully cut and well made. It's a bit heavy so I didn't really need tape to keep the chest in place since the dress weighs it down a bit. Would order again without hesitation.

My first RTR and it was perfect!
I wore this dress over the weekend and it was perfect! The dress was light so I was not hot even though the temperature outside was 82 degrees. I loved the deep v-neck, it was sophisticated yet sexy. Definitely recommend this dress! P.S. Fashion tape and petals are a necessity.
MollyAugust 17, 2012
what kind of shoes did you wear? I will also be outdoors on grass!
RTRAugust 29, 2012
Hi Molly! We suggest wearing wedges if you are going to be on grass! Patent nude or black wedges would look perfect!

The great dress!
This was a really fun dress! It is pretty low cut in the front, so I used fashion tape for a little extra security! The color was really vibrant, and I loved it! Definitely best for someone with a smaller bust!
Sydney June 2, 2012
What type of bra did you wear? I'm wearing this dress in a week and im not sure what to do
RTRJune 4, 2012
Hi Sydney, this dress is pretty low cut so it would have to be worn with sticky petals or fashion tape to secure the sides

Very pretty
I got a medium, but should have gotten a small. There were no more smalls for the weekend I needed it. I wore it to my prom. The length was fine with high heels, but I had to pull in the straps and the front so I wasn't flashing the world. If I had gotten a small I doubt it would have been as bad. The dress is made for people who are more flat chested. I got a sticky/backless/strapless bra from Target. You couldn't see it unless the dress fell down and the dress is very heavy. I got loads of compliments on it. It is a very pretty dress. I think the model makes the back look a little lower than it is. I wore a bun and loads of pearls and it made for a very classy look.

Sara, do you remember the heel height you wore? I'm 5'9" and would be wearing flat sandals.

FAB dress
Definitely a show stopper. I wore this to my prom and was given so many compliments. Straps are long and I recommend sizing down. I was swimming in the small in the top area.

Beautiful
I absolutely loved this dress. It was a little big on me around the waist and the straps at the top, but nothing a little tape and string couldn't help. Felt gorgeous in it and was getting compliments all night. The color is extremely flattering as well!

I felt like a movie star in this dress!
This dress is amazing. It was a bit large in the top since it's supposed to drape so I opted for the XSR, which was a bit snug in the waist but fit better overall. I'm 5'1" (5'2" on a good day) and with 4 inch platform heels, the length was perfect. This is great for traveling (doesn't wrinkle) and for accentuating all the right places!

Incredibly made
I wore it to a rehearsal dinner and got so many compliments on it. The fabric moves beautifully making you do the same. Be ready because it certainly fits the way it does in the model picture meaning not for a busty girl. I have a smaller chest and used fashion tape to keep it in place. The back is a show stopper and i highly recommend if you want to make an impression.

Couldn't have asked for a more stunning dress.
GORGEOUS dress. Wore it to my prom and I received so many compliments. Doesn't feel like jersey and color is a beautiful red/coral. Definitely need tape for the chest though.
SaraMay 15, 2012
Can you put up a picture? And what's the chest situation like? I'm a B cup, but I'm really concerned when I get it, it will be too floppy in the chest.
TaylorMay 15, 2012
^^yes, agreed! please put up a picture
RTRMay 16, 2012
Hi Sara, this dress is very low cut in the front so we recommend Hollywood Fashion tape to secure the sides as it cannot be worn with a bra.
MiriamMay 17, 2012
yeah, it'd be great if you could put up a picture because I'm pretty concerned about how the dress falls.. thanks!
CaraMay 17, 2012
Please put up a picture!! thanks
Maddie May 21, 2012
The material is fairly heavy so it shouldn't be floopy in the front.
NancyJuly 16, 2012
Maddie, do you remember the heel height you wore? I'm 5'9" and would be wearing flat sandals.
RTRJuly 18, 2012
Hi Nancy, this style is 56'' from shoulder to hem (recommended for heights 5'1''-5'6''). Take a quick measurement from your shoulder down to make sure this is an appropriate length for your shoe and event.
Maddie August 6, 2012
I was wearing 4.75 inch heels and it was an inch off the ground but it definitely dragged after I took them off.
