Great color, great now accent

This is the first RTR dress I was simply OK with, meaning I wasn't blown away by the fit. The color was great, the length was good for the type of party I was attending. A major downside that I found was that the sleeves were entirely too baggy. It could be because I have a short torso but there was no way I could've worn this dress out without pinning up the sleeves. The dress also felt a little boxy to me and maybe would've worn better on a leaner, less curvy figure.

Gorgeous holiday red!

This dress runs big, so it's comfortable for eating, sitting, dancing, etc. but on my 5'8" 140lb frame the size 4 was very roomy, particularly in the chest, so it puckered under the arms. I love the bow in the back. It works well with any jewelry and shoe combination.

My favorite dress so far from rtr!

I loved this dress! The red was perfect for the Christmas party. The size was pretty true to size as I fit between a 2 and 4. I wore the 2 is tighter on the chest (runs a little big on top. It has pockets too which I didn't realize. It was a nice surprise. It was a little on the short side for me but fine as long as I was careful not to bend over much. I told my husband I wanted to buy this dress!

Classic Christmas dress

I wore this dress to my office holiday party and it was perfect. The color is a true Christmas red and it's a timeless look. The dress was a bit tight in the rib cage and the fabric does not have much give. I went with the 6 because the 8 was a bit loose in the bust. Even though I'm a 36C I could have gone braless with this dress because the fabric is thick and it was fitted enough that it wouldn't have been a problem but I opted to wear a stick-on, backless and strapless bra. I loved this dress and was so sad when I had to return it.

Classic and so darn cute

I guess I was between sizes for the dress but chose to go with the 8. It was a little big at the top since I'm a bit smaller in that region. I wore this for a wedding and received so many compliments! The bow detail is definitely what takes it up a notch and provides a little sex appeal for those wanting to show off their back!

Classic!

Perfect! Flattering, classic and comfortable! Being fuller figured and in my mid 40's it can be hard to find something with all of these qualities! I absolutely loved this dress and felt like a princess! I got so many compliments. Beyond pleased with my first RTR experience!

I got lots of compliments on the color and style of the dress.

The dress was a little large. I usually wear a 0, but if the 00 was offered I would have gone for that. It was especially large in the chest. It may have just been stretched out from others wearing it. Otherwise, I received tons of compliments especially on the style and color.

Perfect dress for my company's holiday party

LOVED this dress! Sending it back was heartbreaking...the material kept its shape all night long, it has pockets (!) and the bow in the back is PERFECTION. It was the perfect mix of feminine and flirty. I would definitely rent this dress again <3

Beautiful color!

I wore this for a wedding rehearsal dinner and it was great for the event. I'm 5'5, 34A, 155 lbs, pear shaped. I tried this on in store at RTR recommended by my favorite stylist (Jared) and loved the color. This dress has pockets ( a big selling feature for me), was able to keep my iPhone, keys and money in the pockets. The true beauty of this dress is the back, I am small chested so I wore a strapless bra taped down with fashion tape, but could be worn without a bra because the fabric is thick. Gave it a 4/5 because the fabric crushes easily ( which can be seen from the picture). Simple in front but beautiful from the back. Wore with a bracelet and strappy nude heels.

Great color, lovely fabric.

Cons: The dress is fairly plain from the front. Pros: beautiful color, pockets are handy, and it fit nicely. This was my first rental & I was super impressed with the packaging & ease of return.

Show stopper!

This dress gets you noticed! It's a really beautiful vibrant red, and a pretty thick, high quality material. The back is so adorable, and I love the pockets! The chest area was a little big on me, but that's expected for my shape. The length was just above my knee. I got so many compliments on this dress!

Fun dress, but too large

I didn't end up wearing this dress. The fabric is a gorgeous color, and nice and thick. I was a little disappointed in the fit. A zero was too large. It got more like a 2 or even a 4. A shame! Otherwise it was a fun dress.

Perfect dress for Kentucky Derby party!

Fit was true to size. I will say it works well for larger busts. Otherwise I can imagine the sleeves might slide down. Perfect dress, comfortable, easy to wear. Tons of compliments!

Dress is orange.

It is much more orange than red. The fit didn't work for me at all. I am petite and the waist hit in a weird place. Seems to look cute on others... Not on me.

Cute, fun, easy to wear

I ordered a size up as I was afraid that it wouldn't fit. It's true to size so I should have ordered my real size. I enjoyed the extra room in the hips but the extra room in the top made it hard to keep my chest in place. Order your size ladies! I so enjoyed this dress. The bow in the back was the perfect accent. Beautiful red color and satin fabric. Order this!

Perfect dress for a rehearsal dinner over a wedding weekend! Received millions of compliments!!!!

This dress was perfect. The color and fit were stunning. I was complimented all night long. I was so flattered. The back is very striking with the open look with the big bow. Very classy. And good length - even though I'm tall at 5'10. Loved this dress!!

The 12 fit but the 14 was more comfortable so I went for the larger size. Used Hollywood tape on the shoulders to keep them from slipping.

Very girly and sexy at the same time!!

Fits beautifully , I had to wear sticky cups as I have large breasts. The backless V is so sexy in a very sophisticated manner. I love the pockets with the dress. Received lots of compliments , it is a bit tight in the bust and the shoulders do run a bit larger.

Fabulous!

The dress fit like a glove! The bow on the back was adorable. I received a ton of compliments. I never wear red so this was out of my comfort zone. The color is a gorgeous red/orange and was perfect for a country club wedding in IL!

Perfect dress for big busted

I loved this dress but the top was way too big. I am between a 2 and a 4 with dresses and based on reviews I ordered the 2. It fit great except the chest part was really big. Usually no problem I would wear with a bigger bra but the back goes down so low in the back (which is pretty!) that I couldn't wear my bigger bra. So straps kept sliding off. Other than that adorable and got lots of compliments.

Easy process and great dress!

This was my first time using Rent the Runway. I LOVED this dress. The color was brighter in person than I expected, but so pretty. The only thing was the right seam on the skirt was crooked compared to the left seam. Luckily I don't think it was too noticeable.

So many compliments. And pockets!

The color is great! This dress is super comfortable and I wore it all night, long after some had changed out of their uncomfortable dresses. The pockets were a great plus. The material is thick so no worries about a bra. Not too short either but short enough.

Beautiful color & awesome back!

This dress was really pretty! My only complaint is that it holds wrinkles from sitting (I.e. From sitting during the ceremony I had creases in the dress the rest of the night). I ordered a size bigger than I usually am and it fort perfectly.

Loved the color, back detail and pockets!

I got compliments all night long on this dress. The color is stunning and it has pockets! I was able to use a strapless bra with low back extender straps to accommodate the low back on this. I did have to steam it as the seams didn't line up when I got it so it was twisting to the side.

Fits well. Comfy & flattering. I wore something else I liked better just bc I made poor eating choices earlier in the day and felt I needed a different dress. It is really cute though. Not sexy. Cute. LOVED the pockets!

So classy and perfect for a rehearsal dinner!

The back was so cute but does make it harder to wear a bra but material is thick so no bra was fine for me. Color is vibrant and long enough for me being 5'10''. I definitely recommend!

Absolutely GORGEOUS dress!!

This dress was amazing and I received compliments all night on it! It was perfect for the wedding I was attending and I absolutely loved accessorizing it. I wore my usual size and it was perfect. Gorgeous back detail and simple elegant front. The pockets were amazingly useful as well. I would rent this exact dress again I loved it so much!
