Glamour!

This dress is absolutely beautiful! I love the draped shawl on it. I ended up not wearing it because it was a little too small and was actually a bit too formal for the event once I tried it on. However, this gown is award show worth! You will feel like a movie star! This dress does not have very much stretch at all , and was especially tight for me in the bust (why I could not wear it). Another positive about this gown is that you can wear a normal bra, spanx, whatever you want with it too.

This dress was completely fabulous! Stole the show, but runs SMALL.

This is a bright, deep, red dress--combine that with the cape and it is a statement for sure. This dress ran EXTREMELY SMALL. I usually wear a small 8L, due to the size recommendations I went up to a 10L with a 12L backup. The 12L was new with tags--tried it on and it was approximately 2 inches from zipping. That is some crazy sizing. Luckily the 10L had clearly been worn before and it was a snug fit, but able to wear it. The length of the dress was relatively short for a long--I am 5'6" and had 4 1/2" heels on and as you can see in the photo the dress was definitely off the ground. The sizing was extremely stressful and I would recommend going up two sizes, but once it was worked out, the dress was AMAZING. Huge statement, everyone commented on it all night. It was so regal and dramatic. My husband loved it so much he wants to buy it. Really great dress, just beWARE of the sizing!

This dress is a standout - In a room full of tuxes and fitted sequined gowns, this one WOWS!

Ridiculous amounts of compliments on this dress! The event photographer whispered in my ear that this was the best dress of the night and Someone else actually compared this dress to the White Tom Ford Gown Gwyneth Paltrow wore to the Oscars which frequents many "Best Dressed" Red Carpet lists to this day. The fit is tough ...., I am tall 5'11" and the long was not long enough for heels. The dress is not forgiving - I recommend trying on in the store, get an extra size up, or order a back-up dress in case this does not work for your shape. While this dress fit me well, I do not have many other friends that could also pull this off. Would be ideal for someone tall, busty, and shapely.

Cape is the trend!

This dress was a hit at a November black tie wedding in Chicago. It's flattering to the frame as well as conservative with its across the chest. I would rent this or a similar style again the cape being a very in trend. I usually am an 8-10 in dresses and the 8 was perfect for me. I did pair this with earrings from RTR and a clutch

Receiving the comments and looks on how the dress looks and fits. The word "runway" was used. Love .

I wore this to a Black Tie Affair for a Fraternity 75 Anniversary. I loved everything about the dress. The color is extremely vibrant and vivid. This dress made me feel extremely sexy and tall. It seemed a bit too snug in the torso area yet, the breast area was a little large. I am 63" (considered short) and was concerned the size 4 regular was going to be too long; however the heel height worked out well. The pairing of my jewelry, make up, and hair tied it all in. My concerns were the extreme wrinkling and the zipper that was being caught in the material once I got in the dress. Not even my husband could help with this. I ended up calling customer service the following day about my concerns and was told to steam my bathroom in order to get the wrinkles out. This would not have worked due to the large size and layout of my custom home built bathroom. Thank goodness I have a steamer and this took me five to six hours to hide the liner that could be seen when wearing, steam the seam allowance by turning the dress inside out, and the zipper area to prevent the zipper from catching in the material. Once I was done with the steaming, I was able to get the dress zipped with the help of my makeup artist. The customer service representative did offer me the opportunity to get a replacement dress; however, it would not have been the same dress and I called within 15 minutes missing the opportunity of getting a suggested dress that I was not able to see on my phone by noon on Sat, Nov 7, 2015. Despite this, I would not trade the wearing of this dress that I inquired about purchasing the dress.

Too small.

I'm a 36DD and usually wear a size 8 or 10. The 10 was way too small and the darts under the chest were pulling awkwardly. If you are large chested go up a size or 2.

Tight in the hips and loose in the waist

I really wanted to wear this gown to a formal event I attended, but it just isn't meant for hourglass shaped women. I rented two sizes and if it fit in the waist it was tight in the hips. The one that got my hips had extra fabric around the waist. Thankfully I also rented a different style which worked perfectly.

It was definitely a dramatic look and I got a ton of compliments.

The dress was in no way "Long" I got both the OL and 2L an neither one was long enough for me. I am just under 5'7'' and the dress was too short without heels. Definitely a bit disappointing. Not sure who that would be long enough for. The fit was a bit strange. Not totally fitted or anything but I was able to make it work.

I was unable to wear this dress given the issue of length.

The dress is drop dead gorgeous! If I were shorter, I would have absolutely kept the dress. The cape is heavy as other reviewers have stated but it would not have prevented me from wearing it. The dress was off the floor in the front even as I was barefoot so it had to be returned.

Dress was amazing! I wore it for a gala and got compliments all night. Would definitely recommend.

Fit was true to size, I would go a size down if you want it a little more snug, but other than that length and fit was great. Only thing that was a little annoying was the hanger strings-they kept popping out of the dress. Everything else was perfect.

It fit PERFECTLY! I got so many compliments! Definitely a great gown for a holiday party! (Worked well for a devil's costume too.) I wore flats and it just barely touched the ground.

Lovely but not for curves

I rented this dress for a black tie gala. Luckily, I live in Washington where there is a Rent the Runway store and was able to try on the dress in-store at pick up. While the dress is beautiful, it's not exactly a perfect fit for hourglass shaped women. The fabric does not have stretch to it. Suffice to say, I did not end up renting this dress. If you're tall and model-like, this dress is for you.

Amazing dress that made me feel so elegant.

I received so many compliments on this dress. It was a little long for me. I wore the 8R with 2 inch heels since my boyfriend is short, but he kept stepping on the hem. It was a lot heavier of fabric than I had expected. That was perfect for nighttime in Michigan, but so you southerns know you may be too hot. Still, the night felt magical and I felt gorgeous which is what a dress like this is supposed to do.

My fiancé's co-workers complimented me all night long!

Normally I'm a size 10, so I ordered the 8 and 10 based on everyones reviews. Like said, the bust is larger than the rest of the dress. Unfortunately, the size 8 was a little snug and as someone mentioned in an earlier review- the dress is unforgiving. You could see every little flaw, BUT I have a smaller bust and the tightness accentuated it very nicely. So, I had to go with the 10L. The length was perfect! I wore it with flats and it graced the floor perfectly. Because of the bust, the hanger straps kept falling out, but was easily fixable by wearing a strapless push-up bra. Overall, I loved the dress! I would've given the dress a 5, but the 8 fit me in spots the 10 didn't and vice versa.

This dress was awesome! Bright and dramatic, perfect for Christmastime.

I felt like a diva in this dress! I wore it for a concert and it was just perfect. The cape is amazing (I always wanted to wear a dress with a cape), and the overall design is just classic and stunning. I also like that the shade of red is not too light--it is a true red (not verging on orange or pink). I am 5'6" and was able to wear flats, although it was a bit long with flats. I just made sure to walk with care and it was great.

This dress was amazing for our engagement shoot!

I was a little nervous initially about renting this dress because I read that it ran kinda small. This was somewhat true for me too, it fit normal size in the bust area but the hip and butt area was really tight (thanks mom lol)....overall, this was a really comfortable and beautiful dress, but I suggest a higher heel as it did run really long. I will be using RTR again and again!

The Perfect Dress - Compliments All Night

Normally I'm a 2 but I went for the 0 because it was all they had. It fit perfectly. It is super flattering without being skin tight. I received compliments all night. The Bride even said something! I would rent again again and again

Great dress and color. Very striking.

The dress is structured, so definitely size up if unsure. I could have squeezed into the eight if I had to, but the ten was much more comfortable and more flattering. The dress does not cling to your stomach, which is great. It is more fitted across the chest, and the darting looked a bit awkward in some of the pictures, but overall very happy about the fit. The color is as pictured.

This was for an Old Hollywood themed New Year's Eve party, so the red and the cape were perfect!

The fit was a little weird. I have an athletic build. It was tight through the hips/butt, so the fabric getting caught there almost made it look like I have a pooch at my tummy because it didn't fall straight down. BUT the 8 was WAY too big, so I just dealt with the 6 and got tons of compliments. The cape is really elegant and added just enough of a statement. The red is a beautiful red, not orangey and looked good even on my winter skin color. I think in the future, I will steer clear of renting this brand because it's just not made right for my build off the rack.

Gorgeous, standout dress.

This dress was beautiful and got alot of compliments, I would love to own it. But if I owned it, I would definitely need to get it altered. The 4 was too snug in the hips and the 6 (which I wore) was a little loose in the chest.

Slimmer around the waist, shows flaws so grab undergarments to help smooth things out.

It has a CAPE!

I fluctuate up and down a bit between a 10 and a 12, so I ordered a 10R and a 12L. I couldn't fit the 10R around my butt and hips, so I went with the 12L. I'm only 5'5" and I wore about a 2in heel, but only because I didn't have taller heels that were more comfortable (my event was at a large convention center and required lots of walking). As you can see in the picture where I'm glaring (it happens), the L was still a bit long, but not so long that I was willing to sacrifice my feet! The hanging tabs drove me crazy! They're angled to stick out of the dress instead of laying flat inside. I used scotch tape to make sure the one on my shoulder stayed in, and my my sisters on armpit duty all night to make sure it wasn't popping out. Either way I thought this was a great dress. It's a fun color, but not over the top. The cape adds a really cool touch while still being tasteful. I wore it to a black tie charity event and a corresponding company party and felt comfortable all night. I wore a strapless bra, the dress itself didn't have enough support otherwise. People made comments about shape wear and they're not wrong, I definitely used some Spanx to make sure everything was nice and smooth, but I do that with most formalwear.

Lovely dress, but not right for someone with hips or "tummy" insecurities

First the positives. I loved the cape and the color is striking. The fabric felt very nice and the length was exactly as described. The dress was true to size in the bust area but was very tight through the hip. To even consider wearing it for the formal dinner I ordered this as a backup dress for, I would have needed two or three layers of Spanx to hopefully hold in my lower stomach area (which is not huge but an area I don't like to emphasize). Then I would have been too worried to sit or eat. Going up a size would have made everywhere else too baggy. :-(

Lady in red meets caped matador!

This dress was just stunning! The silhouette is sleek and so flattering. The cape made it so much fun to wear and I got so many compliments. The fit was pretty true to size, although it was a little tight in the thigh/hips area for a 2. If you're usually a zero like I am, definitely get the 2 instead. I'm 5'3 and so I had to wear platform 5" heels to make it the perfect length. The only thing I would say is if you're at an event where you'll be sitting for awhile, take all of your pictures before you have to sit down because the dress definitely wrinkles around the hips after sitting for a long time and you can't get those wrinkles to go away. Other than that, it's a true showstopper!

Fun, unique dress

This dress is a stunner! The material is heavy, so it hangs beautifully, (although it does wrinkle easily) and it is the most beautiful shade of red. The cape adds just the right amount of "drama"--really cool feature. As for fit: I'm 5'4", 123 lbs, curvy/athletic build. Normally I wear a size 4, but it wasn't available, so I went a size up and wore the 6. I'm glad I did, because what the other reviewers said is absolutely true--the dress is cut narrow through the hips. The 6 fit my hips/butt perfectly, but it was slightly big through the waist and bust. Many other reviewers said they felt the dress runs short--I didn't have that problem at all. I wore platform heels, and the dress was still about a half an inch too long. The dress feels very well made--the only thing that was a pain were the little hanger straps. You'll have to tape them down or make sure you have a friend on strap detail, because they constantly want to pop out. Other than that, I absolutely loved this gown.

This dress made me feel like a goddess. Absolutely LOVE it.

From the second I put it on, I was in love. The dress fit like a glove. It was not form fitting like most styles out now, but the way it draped on my body was truly flattering. I wore a sticky bra underneath, though I could have probably gone without one entirely. My body is difficult to dress sometimes. My shoulders are more broad for my chest size.. (sigh) #femalepains. The cape brought such an edge to it that EVERY SINGLE PERSON I came in contact with commented on how amazing I looked. In the picture I am not wearing heels which is why the dress looks so long on me. I wore a 4" heel and it feel perfectly.

Showstopping gown!

The gown is REALLY tight through the midsection. I am pear shaped so it was too big on the top and super snug on the bottom. The cape is heavy too which didn't help. I used a couple strips of dress tape to keep the shoulder in place. I wore two pair of spanx on the bottom to smooth out the dress around the hip. Though I was strapped in I was pretty comfortable all night. The dress was a hit and well worth the struggle to get in. Definitely size up like everyone has said.

I attended an After 5 affair, and felt both classy and like a knock out in this stunning gown!

The dress fit great! I ordered a size 2, which is my normal size. The only issue I had was having to pull the dress down whenever I stood up from my seat because the dress was very form fitting in my mid-section. Otherwise, it was perfect. I especially loved how wowing the red color and one shoulder cape were.

One of a kind dress, don't have to worry about others in the same outfit!

It was a masquerade ball, so the cape was an extra dramatic touch. I was nervous because I couldn't order up a size like people suggested in the reviews, but it ended up fitting perfectly with some spanx underneath. This was my first rental and I had such a great experience, I will most definitely be renting again whenever I get the chance.

I loved the color of this dress. Good mix of classy, sexy, and edgy.

I ordered the 2L and 4L. I'm normally a 2 and the 2L fit me well. I'm relatively broad, however, so if I had a larger bust this definitely would not have fit up top. I also could not step into the dress because it's tight around the hips. The cape is heavy, which is why I'm deducting a star - it was very difficult to dance in this dress without worrying the cape would tear or fall off. Overall, loved the look of the dress!

Beautiful dress, got tons of compliments!

I was attending a formal gala and the theme was "Once Upon a Time." This dress, with its dramatic cape, was perfect! I got so many compliments all night. It fit well and true to size. It was a little long though, I needed pretty high heels. (I'm 5'5"). The most annoying thing about this dress was the little straps to hang the dress on the hanger...they kept coming out and I was fiddling with them all night. I guess I should have pinned them somehow. There are three of them and I wished I could have just removed them! Its a beautiful dress and I would definitely wear it again.

Red, Glamorous, and Fun!

This dress was perfect for the American Heart Association Heart Ball that I volunteered for. The dress was just the right amount of formal, with a flare of fun using the cap. I originally asked for a 0R, as that is my size, but ended up using the 2R for the better fit. I received so many compliments for the dress and felt so glamorous the entire evening. I highly recommend this dress to anyone!

Beautiful dress, but didn't work out for me :(

I absolutely love this dress, but unfortunately it was entirely too tight across my hip/butt area. The dress is too much of a column/straight fit so I wouldn't recommend if you're curvy like me. Also, I ordered a 12L but this dress would have been no where near long enough. It hit well above my ankle even in bare feet. It appeared like the dress wasn't even a "long" size but that they just let the hem down to try and make it a little longer because the hem of the dress was unfinished. Such a shame I couldn't wear it because the gown is gorgeous!

Elegant and Classic (with some flaws)

This dress made me feel confident, sexy, and glamorous! I received many compliments and a drunk stranger even told me I looked like a total fox. (Thanks, drunk guy!) I recommend this dress on the basis that it is GORGEOUS and exudes an air of class and elegance. And it has a cape!!!! All the beauty aside, it did take a lot to make this dress work. Here's what I have to say: Color & Fabric: Stunning, true red; Thick luxe fabric with little stretch. Length: Runs very long. I'm 5'3 and had to wear 5" platform heels. My husband did end up stepping on my cape a few times. Fit: As others have described, the dress has an awkward fit: loose in the bust and tight in the hips. The 2R felt perfect around my midsection but the top sagged to the point where I kept having to push the shoulder up every few minutes. I also had to employ the use of a LOT of double sided tape and proper undergarments (ahem, Spanx). Bra worn: Strapless corset-type bra by Betsey Johnson. Purchased at Nordstrom and I fully recommend it! It lifted like a dream and was super comfortable to wear. A traditional strapless would work but I didn't feel it was flattering with how loose the dress is in the bust. Other notes: Tape the hanger straps down into the dress. There's like a million of them and they love to peek out.

Movie star dress

The 2 fit up to my chest but wouldn't zip (I'm a 32D) and was a little short with my heels. The 4R was the perfect length but a bit loose in areas. I felt stunning in the dress and got so many compliments from ladies at the event. It was sexy without being obvious and a total standout at the gala!
