Stunning design and color

I should have gotten a 6 instead of a 4. But loved how gorgeous it was!

Gorgeous dress, true to size, but ...

If you wear a half slip strapless shaper, you can see every line through the dress at your thighs. You would need a full-size slip shaper and I'm not gonna spend $70+ on one just for this dress. I could get away with not having a bra, but you can see every lump, mole, etc. if you know what I mean. I tried using a silicone nipple cover and you can still see the outline of the nipple cover and it looks ridiculous. So if you don't mind showing the world every detail of your nipples or you can wear the perfect undergarment, which I feel there isn't one, this is dress for you! Absolutely gorgeous fit, true to size if not a tad large. I am 5' 6" and this dress just hits the floor without heels.

Beautiful dress but it shows anything you try to wear under it. It just didn't fit right for my body shape.

Pure perfection!!

Compliments all night & days after! Possibly my favorite dress ever. I usually wear a 0 or 2, this fits more like a 0 & smaller than other dresses from this designer. Will probably rent again.

Gorgeous cutout back and lots of stretch, super classy

I've got a large behind and small chest and waist, so finding a gown that fits was tricky. This dress has a lot of stretch and fit me great. I had a little extra room in the chest but it wasn't noticeable, and I got several compliments on the cool cutout back of the dress and how the dress fit my behind. Gorgeous dress for a black tie wedding. Great deep berry color, and I love the mermaid cut flare out at the bottom of the dress. The bow on the right shoulder is very large but it didn't feel overpowering when I wore the dress.

Perfect fit and comfortable!

Stretchy material gives this dress the perfect fit. I wore a size up from what I normally wear because that's what was available but it didn't matter. Heavy material too so no spanx or bra needed.

Wore at 31 weeks pregnant

I received so many compliments on my dress at a black tie event. I was 31 weeks pregnant and this dress fit me almost perfectly. I say almost bc while it looked perfect on the front, there is a cutout on the back and from the back it looked too small bc my bump pulled on it. Not a big issue, but def something to think about if you're preggo. At 31 weeks pregnant, I was about 145 lbs (I'm 5'4") just to give you an idea if you're looking to rent this as a maternity option!

Great dress!

Loved this dress more than I had anticipated. Wore it to a black tie event, received SO many compliments. The dress fit well on my curvy hourglass with large bust, I was even able to wear my spanx underneath, although the whole dress is a thick stretch material and holds you in well. I would highly recommend! I am typically a size 4 , 5,7", and ordered the 40L - was perfect!

Flattering to my baby bump!

I'm 5.5 months pregnant and the dress showed off my baby bump perfectly while still flattering everything else! I got tons of compliments! I normally wear a size 2-4 (5'6" and 130 lbs pre pregnancy) depending on the cut of the dress and went with the size 6 to give myself a bit more space to move. Dress is a great stretchy fabric and beautiful cut! Thank you RTR! #babybump #holidayparty

Would be better with a zipper

I didn't love that this dress doesn't have a zipper so wiggling it over my pregnant body wasn't great. It's certainly a pretty dress but I'll stick to something easier to wear in my current form

The back makes the dress unforgettable. As with all dresses by this designer, the material is thick, stretchy and so comfortable. Loved it!

Red Lady

Wore this for a formal night on a cruise. Liked the material. Thought it was a little tight over my tummy and a little loose up top. However the fabric stretched and didn't feel tight.

Stunning and unexpected

This dress was heavy in fabric and not thin at all! I wore a strapless and backless bra but could not wear bottom undergarments due to panty lines. I got compliments all night, was able to move and was an incredible red. I'm 5'2 tall and weigh 141 and I wore the 42r and 3 inch heels and it was exactly what I wanted! This dress is the real deal and very easy to dance in. Hated sending it back. I wear an 8 everyday but wore the smaller one of the two.

Tighter than expected

Liked the dress and the back was very neat, but it was a lot tighter than expected (no zipper so has to stretch over you) and short on me (5'7)

Tiny with almost no stretch

I couldn't even try it, it was that tiny. I'm a size 0 normally but I go up with designers that run large.. in hind sight this is definitely something I should have sized up with. Beautiful dress otherwise!!!

Spanx would definitely be needed

I wasn't a fan of the large open back in person, although it looks stunning in photos online. I feel this dress is definitely cut for a tall, slender built person vs the apple shape that I am.

Great Color & Form-Fitting

More of a pinkish, berry red - very unique color. Very comfortable to wear and form-fitting. I am 5'10 and this dress is perfect with flats (dress just touches the floor). I preferred another dress that I rented, but this one is nice.

Beautiful dress and amazing fit, this size was just a little too long so I swiped for correct size.

Fit perfectly besides the length! Which I knew when ordering, I to just see it on first and when I ordered my usual size was not available. Luckily it was available a few days later and I could swap! Fits perfectly! Love that its a stretchy material and is super comfortable to move around in. Cannot wait to wear it for the Masquerade Ball!

So many compliments!

There are no zippers so you really have to slip the whole thing on over or under your body. It's very tight and shows everything so I wasn't able to wear anything under it but honesty it was worth it. I love it and loved how I looked

I received complements from strangers. That has never happened to me before!

I was easily able to walk and dance wearing this dress. I needed to wear an adhesive bra for support. The length of the dress barely touched the floor with a 4" heel.

I received many compliments for this gown.

I love this brand and almost always get it for our yearly Charity Ball. The scuba type fabric really slenderizes. Unlike others from this designer, there was a liner in the top front. Because it is so form fitting, the line of the bottom might show. Additionally, even though you don’t need a bra w this brand, because I am so flat, I had to use a stick on bra for a little curve. Also note, it is not a bright red, more a purply red. I didn’t think I would like it, but I received so many compliments that it must have looked nice.

A classic, elegant gown

The material of this dress is stretchy and slimming while still thick enough not to reveal all. At my height of just under 5'7", bare-footed the regular almost hits the floor. If you have tall heels, go for the long. The unique back doesn't allow for a bra, so for smaller chested gals who want a boost, use stick on cups.

A glamorous dress for a glamorous night!

I rented this dress to attend a formal wedding in Los Angeles in December. This dress did not disappoint! The fabric is heavy and packed well (I live in Florida). The red is a unique shade... of the many red dresses worn that night, no one had a shade of red similar to mine. I'm large busted but was able to find a great backless, strapless bra to wear with it. And I did not find that I needed to wear Spanx with it... the fabric was heavy and smoothing enough. The style was perfect for the event and the season. I truly felt very glamorous that night!
