Beautiful dress!

Beautiful color, and the open back was fun while still being elegant. I'm surprised that I had a little more room in this dress in the 0 compared to other dresses I have tried on. I really love this dress!

Showstopping red dress

Such a fun dress and I received so many compliments! The material has some stretch and is easy to move around and dance. The dress runs a little small in the bust so I opted for the 6L instead of the 4L for a little more coverage (I'm a 34C and there was no room for any kind of bra). I'm 5'10 and the long was perfect with 3 inch heels.

Red hot dress!

Dress fit like a glove, I'm between a 6 and an 8 and opted for the 6 so it was more form fitting, the 8 was a little baggy and made me look a little wider. I ordered a long and wore flats with it and it just touched the ground. I wore a sticky bra with the dress but a bra is not necessary. Subtly sexy and fun dress for a formal event!

Beautifully elegant, perfect fit!

I️ rented this dress for my husbands annual Marine Corps ball, I've always wanted to wear red to the event but could never pull the trigger on a dress. I️ read the reviews on this dress and decided to go with it. I️ ordered a 8L and a back up 10L (I'm 5'10" so I️ always order long on RTR). I'm about 9 months postpartum now and normally would wear between an 8 but I tried on the 10L first and it fit perfectly so I️ didn't even bother with the 8. I️ was worried that the 10 would be too big on the chest area, I'm pretty curvy and have an athletic build but small around the chest area. This dress had a little bit of a stretch which was perfect and although I️ was a little worried about the side cutouts and opening, it ended up looking very elegant, it was tactfully placed in a good area :) I️ got so many compliments and the length was also perfect. I️ would definitely recommend this dress for a formal affair #militaryball #reddress #elegant #beautiful

The overall shape was very elegant and I got a ton of compliments. I felt like a rockstar in the dress, I would definitely wear it again. The 6L was a tad long with heels, though. I might get s regular next time so I could wear shorter heels. Love this dress!

I love a good red dress and this was a good red dress

I choose to wear the size 2 over the 0 to make it less sexy/boob-a-licoius. I was going to a more conservative event; otherwise I would have worn the 0. This is probably the best shade of red in a dress I have seen. My guess not made for tiny girl with big & and or fake boobs but I made it work

Beautiful color and comfortable fit

I️ loved the red color of this dress and the fabric wasn't too structured, I felt like I could move easily in it. I'm 5'5" and wore 3" heels and the dress was maybe a inch too long but still easy enough to walk in. I️ had a baby four months ago and am still nursing so the bust was a little snug but I was able to get the girls in all night with no issues. I️ also wasn't sure how I'd feel with this dress being fitted on my stomach since being post baby, but I was able to wear spanx underneath with no issues. Loved this dress so much!

The fit was exactly what I had hoped for. The gown was long, but not too long. I was comfortable the whole night. I received so many compliments. We had a fantastic time!

Great fit. Im tall so always worried about dresses hitting the ground. This was a great length, hit the ground when i wore 2 inch heels. Very form fitting on top and trumpet like on the bottom. Loved it.

Great dress!! In person and in pics!

The top fits tightly but the zippered part and back were a tiny bit loose. It still fit well overall and was plenty long for heels! Im 5'10 and wore the 2L. Material is nice but also a little stretchy so its super comfortable!

This dress turned so many heads! Fit was so comfortable with a slightly stretchy material. It would be challenging to wear a bra with this dress. I'd definately rent this again!

Real Life Red Dress Emoji

I loved, loved, loved this dress. I'm 5' 10" and the 4L was a perfect length with heels. The only issue was that the back became unclasped a few times throughout the night. I had read it on another review and was prepared, so it wasn't completely unexpected. It was definitely true to size.

This dress was perfect for my sorority formal. I'm 5'8 so I ordered the 4R and 4L, and the 4R just barely touched the ground with 3 in heels. Flattering fit and so many complements!

Hot little number!

I loved the dress! I tried on the 2R first and probably could have pulled it off but I wouldn't have been comfortable. The material was thick and hugged my curves! The length was perfect too. I danced all night and felt great!

Classy!!!

Rented the 4 and the 6. Went with the 4. There's a little bit of stretch to the fabric so it gave a nice fitted look. I was able to wear a sticky bra with it so there was no worries of any of the bra showing. I'm about 5'3 so the regular length was fine with a decent heel

The dress was great!

I rented this dress for a charity event. I loved the fit and color and got many compliments. I had a hard time deciding between the 8 and 10 and actually wore the 8 at first. Until I bent over to put on my shoes and noticed the seam was ripped in the back!! Luckily the 10 also fit well so I went with that.

Standout!

The 8Long was a great length for me at 6ft (with 1.5in heels) and the hip/waist area was a little loose but allowed for me to be comfortable moving around all night. True red color and the material is thick and lays perfectly without much steaming. The side cut outs make wearing a bra hard but I'm small chested so went without and it was perfect.

The best red dress

Although it ran a little small, 2R was way too loose so i went with this. It was so stunning. I wish I could keep it. Looks great with a pair of earrings. I wore 3.75 inch heels and i'm 5'4" . 2 inch heels would've been enough. Highly recommend trying this dress

It's just AMAZING. Pretty chic and sexy, but also elegant at the same time. Won't recommend to girls with large cup size though. It fits perfect with my body (pear-shape). Tons of compliments. Don't miss it if you want to impress someone or be the hottest girl in the Gala.

This dress was very beautiful and it sure turned all the heads. The material holds you in nicely and you don't even need a bra. Only problem is the material also gets very hot while dancing -- it is sort of like a curtain. Otherwise, I would definitely rent again!

Such a beautiful dress!!

I chose this dress as a backup, but after trying it on I fell in love! It was perfect for my prom night and hits every part of your body just right. I'm pretty slim and don't have that much curve, but with this dress it definitely made it look like I did! And the color is BEAUTIFUL in person. 10/10 recommend

Fit was okay, but not great

the fabric was not stretchy like I had hoped which made the bust difficult and uncomfortable. Love the color though

Almost perfect

Beautiful dress my daughter wore for Prom. Almost perfect but not quite. Shes a size zero but rarely smaller than zero. This ran a little big and I suspect that its less the cut and more because probably a bit stretched out. It still looked beautiful but we both wish it fit more glove like

This is a showstopper

I usually wear an 8 but went up in size to a 10 so I wouldn't spill out of the dress. I could have worn the 8, but the extra room was nice to have. My only thing is I am a bigger chested lady and I felt a bit exposed. Not something I normally do, but it wasn't inappropriate, just more my issue. I loved wearing it, felt elegant and sexy. This is a heavy dress FYI, but it keeps everything in place.

Amazing dress!!! I got so many compliments on it. The top was a little small on my 34dd's, but the rest of the dress fit perfectly. I'm 5'9, wore the 4L with flats and it was the perfect length.

prom dress!!!!!! gorgeous back, amazing fit, amazing color, 10/10!!!!!

i ordered the 2r and 4r. for shorts i usually wear a 4 because my legs are big because i'm an athlete. when i put the 4 on it did not fit at all because it was too big in the waist-- this being said the 2 fit perfectly. order solely on what your waist size is, do not buy big or you will regret it. CON: when i received this dress the 2r was falling apart. the strap was holding on by a few strings and the clasp on the back was un sewn as well. i had to sew both of these parts back into place so i could wear this dress to my prom. very stressful and very disappointed with rtr but i made it work.

RENT THIS DRESS!

Absolute knockout of a dress. Form-fitting, so flattering, and a gorgeous color. Got compliments all night long. I am 5'7" and wore low (probably 2 inch) heels and the length was just right. The top is structured almost like a bra so it was super comfortable for a really long evening. I wore spanx simply so I wouldn't show underwear lines (because it is on the tighter side). Do yourself a favor and rent this dress. Would definitely rent again.

Attention grabbing dress!

I wore this to a graduation at the Claremont Hotel in Berkeley CA. This floor length gown was the perfect length with 3.5 inch heels. I got so many compliments- the red color is definitely a show stopper. The cons are that the dress runs small. There was almost no difference between the 4 and the 6. I would size up on your order as this dress hugs every curve. Also if you are a C cup or above this dress will display all your assets. Certainly fits better on a smaller bust.

Modern classic red dress

I wore this to a company awards gala with a "red dress" theme and got compliments all night long. It photographed well and was a standout in a sea of red dresses. I had a few issues- I say it runs small because I'm typically 4/6 and the 6 was too tight. I ended up wearing the 8R - it was a little loose but I could breathe in it! The main issue was the seams along the sides... The stitching came loose in several places.

Beautiful shape

Loved the overall fit of this dress. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the seem was split on the right side of the dress. I wore the dress anyways because the 4L was too big in the chest. RTR tried to send me a backup but they only had a 2R which was unfortunately too short to wear with any sort of heel.
