Epic win. Best. Rent. Ever. Well-made, comfortable, unique dress.

I didn't want to take this dress off! Thick, expensive-feeling fabric, extremely well-made. True to size. Size down if needed. I'm 5'2, 115 lbs and the 2 fit perfectly, and I'm normally a 4. I did not wear a bra with this. Tried a racer-back bra and it didn't work. Strapless would be fine. Will rent again, for sure.

Hollywood Party

By far my favorite dress I have worn to a Hollywod function!!! The color was so gorgeous and the cut was not only flattering but so different! I can't tell you how many people stopped me to compliment this dress! This was a very exclusive event and I felt like it held its own! It was a great night...Thank you RTR! I highly recommend this dress!!! Fits true to size...not to short and very easy to dance in!

Fit great, felt amazing!

This was such an easy dress. Fit perfect, length was right on. I didn't even need a bra, and I always wear a bra. Looks and feels expensive. Loved the cut in the front, and overall felt very flattering. Wore it to my husbands college reunion and got lots of compliments. Bright beautiful color, stand out dress!

Interesting cut but puckers a little around waist

I really liked it! Only peeve was a little lumpiness or puckering around waist. Couldn't get it to lay flat. But it still looked good.

Short but cute

This dress is amazing but don't expect to be able to sit or bend over. I didn't end up wearing for fear that it was too short. Also I got a size up and it was still too short.

greatest dress of all time

I love this dress. Fit like a glove. Thick material. Good for petites. Made my fat arms look normal which was an unexpected benefit!! The pocket in the front which i thought would be weird was actually amazing to hide my lil tummy (shout-out to whoever else also noted that as it helped me pull the trigger and I'm glad i did). I love you, dress

Loved it!

Loved everything about this dress! The color, the fact that you didn't need to wear a bra, comfortable/easy to move in. It had a good weight to it so kept its structured tier look. It was short, but I'm 5'9" and on vacation so all good :)

** STYLIST REVIEW **

This dress runs a little small, but true to size for the most part. I recommend going one size up for your back up. It is pretty fitted throughout the dress and should be worn with a strapless bra. I have long legs so this dress looks extremely short on me but it felt great. The only Con to this dress was the tight fit in the chest area.

One of the best rentals from RTR! Effortless beauty in this piece

Took advice from prior renters and sized up because of the kangaroo pouch in the front of the dress. I typically wear a 4 but went with the 6 and the pouch was a non-issue as it laid flat from bar, to dinner, and out afterwards. Highly recommend this piece for dinner, date night, wedding or any other event. The red color is so bright that you can keep jewelry to a minimum and let the dress shine!

Didn't sit correctly

I would recommend ordering a size up if you have hips. The dress sat on my hips and it ruined the shape and looked very strange. I think if I had gone for larger size, it still would have done that because the top was too long for my short torso. Better for someone with small hips and/or a long torso.

Love it but VERY short!

I absolutely loved this dress, but it was WAY too short to wear to the event I was going to this weekend. The fabric is flattering, color great, cut looked amazing, the pocket in front is a cute accent. I'm 5'7" and was very bummed I couldn't make it work!

Lady in Red!

Wow! I felt so sophisticated in this dress! It's a simple piece, but that's what makes it so unique and sexy. The color is so vibrant, went very nicely with my skin tone. I followed other recommendations and sized up. The dress fit me perfectly. Very comfortable- danced all night!

Beautiful dress!

I usually wear a 2 and ordered a 4 based on the reviews. The 4 fit perfectly. I wore a strapless bra but could have worked without one since the material is pretty thick. There's a pouch in front of the dress which I don't think is used to store anything but definitely covered my tummy after eating so much at the party. It was super comfortable! I love the cape attached to the dress!! Received tons of compliments! This is one of those dresses that I would like to keep.

SO SEXY AND CLASSIC AND NEW.

Gorgeous dress. Travels well, fit amazingly. I am always between a 6 and an 8, usually a 6, and this 8 was a tight zip. Good lord it was comfortable and beautiful though. Rent it. Compliments galore, and so unique.

A red ball of surprise.

Love the color, fabric, and interesting cut. This dress is certainly set apart from the rest. The inner silhouette is nicely paired with an outer layer, so there are actually 2 zippers in the back. Really loved how elegant the dress felt - except how the mid section was framed. If you have an even small belly pouch, the center pocket will accentuate it. But hey - at least it's got a pocket!

British Invasion Party Dress

Obsessed with this dress! I wore this for a 60's British Invasion Party and it was PERFECT! The fit is super cute. I loved the neckline. The photo doesn't show it, but this dress has a kangaroo pocket across the front, which was kind of odd and made the dress lay sort of funny across my hips. Aside from that, I loved the fit and look. The color is so vibrant!

Fits true to size. There is a pocket in the front that you can access from both sides. The dress is super flattering in the back because of the two layers.
