An instant YES before we even zipped it up. Very flattering, very comfortable VERY lowcut. You will need a deep plunge bra. Also needed high platform shoes for the regular length...she is 5'4".

I received so many compliments on this dress! Definitely recommended RTR to many people!
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my second rental with RTR and I loved it. I wore this to my fiance's fraternity's formal dinner. Everyone was giving me compliments all night! I was concerned about this dress because other reviews stated that the dress ran short, so even though I'm fairly short I ordered a long. It worked out great, I was able to still wear my heels and they just barely showed. Also I was concerned about an all red dress since its not really my color but it was more of a raspberry tone which I completely loved. The dress is thin and low cut so keep that in mind which choosing undergarments. I did not wear a bra and wore regular seamless underwear. I rented the 4L and 6L which both fit but I chose the 4 for a slightly slimmer fit.

Hot & Sexy
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress for my brother in law's wedding. Here are the pros I love the material, is not that clinging polyester crap that most dresses are made off. The weight of the dress is light. My biggest concerns before renting the dress was boob area.. FYI I would not recommend a bra, the plunge is way too low for that. Instead bought, the hollywood fashion tape and the nipple cover-up, which worked awesome!! The dress fitted like a glove but not super tacky-tight. The front knot is the perfect in covering problem areas like the belly and slimming the waist. Cons, Way Too Sexy! Just kidding... I did not like that the zipper in the back of the dress, I feel like is should had been place at the side, for a more seamless look. I am 5'3 and I felt like the dress was a bit short like 4 inches off the floor with heels.

Flattering!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I didn't wear this dress because my particular one had a malfunction (RTR was GREAT and overnighted me two more dresses to Charleston - Thank goodness I still had an amazing dress (even better!?!) dress to wear to the wedding) But I have to say this dress was very flattering and comfortable. It wasn't as low on me as I expected from the other photos. My dress was 6 inches too short (I'm only 5'1) due to the malfunction - the only reason I gave it 4 stars. But I know RTR was working to make sure they got the problem fixed.

No one could stop talking about how "amazing" I looked!
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I really loved this dress and wore it to a wedding reception. The cut of the dress makes your waist look teeny tiny! No one could stop talking about how "amazing" I looked! I would suggest ordering your size in both a regular and a long. The 2 regular was too small, but the 2 long fit great (although it was a little long). I would also suggest wearing a strapless, seamless bra, as the material is thin and you might not want any bra lines. Hollywood fashion tape is a must as the plunge is very low!

I was double booked for 2 holiday parties in the same night and it was perfect for both. The crepe jersey material was comfortable, easy to dance in and it hides most female imperfections (i.e. tummy). I would absolutely reccomend this dress :)

Show-stopping glamour!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is simply stunning - no beadwork or anything "extra" - just simple elegance! I wore this to a black-tie fundraising event and felt like the belle of the ball. The 4R fit perfectly and the length was great with my 4" heels. The draping in the front is great for hiding anything you don't want hanging out (so no sucking in all night!). However, spanx were a must because the back is very plain and smooth so you'll want extra smoothing back there! I'm very small-busted so I couldn't go bra-less with this dress. I wore a nu-bra (just didn't clip it together) along with some fashion tape and I was set for the night. Even after the fact, I continue to get compliments on this dress! The Kenneth Jay Lane Sculpted Branch Cuff was a perfect accesory. Was sad to have to send it all back!

The only challenge was that it was very long. I have 3 1/2 inch heels, would have been better with a 5 inch. Other than that it fit like a dream - made my bust look larger and waist smaller!

I wore this gown to a charity gala event & absolutely loved it!
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is rather stunning. The only issue I had with it is the fact that I had to go up a size from a 2 Long to a 4 Long because I have broad shoulders. The 4 fit perfectly in the shoulders but was baggy in the waist/midsection area. Also, if you plan on ordering a Long, make sure you have 4-5 inch heels. I am 5'8" and wore 5 inch heels and still had to carry the dress sir around most of the night to avoid stepping & tearing it.

Stunning color and a plunging V -
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress has a super low v-cut, but the fabric isn't too stretchy up top, so it stayed in place easily and wasn't uncomfortable to wear. Actually I loved this dress because it was so comfortable to wear. I'm usually a 4, but the dress comes out from a small waist so I fit into a 2R. It doesn't go all the way to the floor, even without heels, so if you're taller (than 5'4") you may want to try the long.

Beautiful
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was beautiful! I was very happy with it. I am tall so the "Long" option was great for me. I wore it with 4 inch heels and it was about a 1/2 inch from the ground. The color looks a bit different in person. I was expecting a slightly deep red - what I received was pink/raspberry. The best thing about this dress is it is very comfortable! I wore it for 8 hours and felt great.

Absolute Showstopper - Glamorous & Sexy while keeping it Classy
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Wore this dress for a black tie wedding in Santa Barbara. I felt confident and sexy in this elegant Issa gown. Paired it with Kenneth Jay Lane “Polished Crystal Drop Earrings” and “Sculpted Branch Cuff” and completed the look with Rebecca Minkoff’s “Step and Repeat Clutch” - loved every item and the complete look. Would HIGHLY recommend spankx for anyone, any size looking to wear this gown – it just needs the extra coverage to smooth everything out. Also, I chose to wear Victoria’s Secret “U-Plunge Push-Up” which was perfect! And, for a little extra protection I added fashion tape to avoid any malfunctions.

Overall fit: Small

The dress was beautiful, but definitely VERY short. I am 5'4" and it was probably 3 inches off the floor when I was barefoot. It is definitely the kind of dress you either need to go nude under or wear spanx - you would absolutely be able to see every panty line in this material. The color is gorgeous and the v-neck is low, but not too low - very sexy while not showing much at all.

This dress was just too low-cut for me.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered this dress but wore the back-up dress instead. It was just to low for me and I felt very over-exposed. If you're small chested...or very brave, this might be okay with some fashion tape. :-) The fabric was nice and not too thin and even though it's form fitting it was flattering on the hips and the length was great too. I got the long and I'm 5'7. I wish I could have worn it!

The color of this dress is a little more pink than red, but still beautiful...Sadly, I had to return it because the plunging neckline is much too low. I think this dress would be great for a smaller busted woman.

A classy, comfotable but stunning gown - just pick the right bra
Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered this dress as my back-up, but wound up wearning it instead of my first choice (an off-the-shoulder column gown) because it was much more comforable and easier for dancing. I rarely wear bright red, but this dress has raspberry undertones that complement most complexions. The fabric has no sheen, so use accessories for some sparkle (I used a rhinestone broach at the under-bust gathering and rhinestone dangling earrings). It only took 3-inch heels to give me a skim-the-floor length. The dress is true to size, but a little foregiving in the front tummy area. I probably could have worn the next size down, but an evening without Spanx and worrying about visible bra lines in the back was a nice change from most formalwear. But if you opt for a closer fit, be aware that the fabric and cut in the back isn't exactly forgiving of bumps and visible lingerie lines. And speaking of lingerie, be prepared for a little trial and error if you are well-endowed. Knowing from prior experience that those adhesive bras don't typically work well for larger cup sizes, I was lucky enough to already own a red plunging bra in my lingerie drawer that did the trick. Overall, I was very satisfied with how I looked and felt in the dress; I received many compliments and would consider renting it again.

Unwearable
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
First of all that dress is not red- it's magenta. I'm 5'7" and for some reason the 4R hit my mid-calf. 6" off the ground (barefoot). COMPLETELY unwearable to a formal event which requires a floor length gown. I would've ordered the Long but it was not availabe. But after trying on the 4R- I KNOW the 4L would not even graze the ground...The top however fit great!

Length or Lack Thereof Was a Problem.
Size worn: None

This dress way my first choice. I got the 10 Long and the 12 Regular (I usually wear a 12 or 14). Both dresses fit great except the length. I am 5' 6 1/2" and the regular was up to my ankles and the long had 6" of fabric laying on the floor even with 5" heels. The dress was beautiful but unfortunately, due to the length, I was unable to wear either size.

This is a very pretty dress though a couple things bothered me about it. The V was a lot deeper than I thought it would be. Even with the Nubra, you could see the clasp in the front. Also, the back of the dress bunched up weirdly along the zipper at my upper back. I don't know if that was just because of the body type I have or that maybe it was slightly too big, but in any case, I did not end up wearing this dress to my event.

It ran really large. I'm normally an 8 and the 8 was definitely too big which made this look like a nightgown. I think to make this look as good as it looks in the picture, you need to wear this on the tighter side. The color was gorgeous and I'm sorry it didn't work for me!

Love the color! Looks great with red hair. Runs a little big I wear 12-14. It was plenty long with heels i still needed to lift when i walked. I am a 36 DDD and depending on the bra the low V can make you look like a porn star. The double sided tape came in handy.
