Gorgeous Gown!
This dress was absolutely stunning! I was a little hesitant about the bust being tight due to my athletic frame, so I did order a 42R, but stuck with the 40R which was perfect with the right bra. Dress did ride up when you walked, but it was absolutely perfect and very high quality forgiving fabric. Would love to wear again!

Favorite RTR dress of all time!
I LOVED this dress. It was perfect for the formal event we attended last Fall. I will definitely rent this again, as it is true to size, hugs every curve, is very flattering, and a show stopper!

Loved this dress! It was super flattering and perfect for a black tie wedding.
I wore my normal size and heels. The material sucks you in and is flattering but I wore spanx as well just to smooth everything out.

I need to own this dress
I received more compliments in this dress than I ever have with any other dress in my entire life. It fit perfectly and I'm really difficult to fit. I'm a 30G bust, typically a size 4/6. The fact that it is a pull-on (no zipper) worked in my favor for fit. The material is heavy but perfect for the mountain top wedding I went to. I wore 40R.

Fab dress. Fit like a glove. Lots of compliments. Would rent it again!
Great dress – I can’t say that enough. Thick material which gives a little support also. Easy to wear a standard strapless bra underneath. I ordered the 46L which I wore, but had ordered the 48R as a back up since I'm usually a 12-14. I probably could have worn that one also, but liked the longer length. Definitely recommend the dress as you can see from all the reviews it seems to suit everyone :-) I would also rent from the same designer. Only slight negative is that the dress puckers just under each hip along the seam line. Not sure if it has been stretched, but both sizes did it. The good thing with the smaller size is it was less obvious.

I looked like the new villain in town on the Bold and the Beautiful
I wore this dress to a wedding where I knew no one but I also think it would be appropriate to wear to an enemy's funeral. Fabric was thick but not necessarily forgiving. If you have curves I highly recommend going for this and double spanxing it. I've never felt sexier and would like to wear this dress every day until I'm eventually buried in it. I have huge boobs and I didn't wear a bra because I wanted to do off the shoulder.

Show stopping red dress!
I felt absolutely beautiful in this red dress. I think it was cut a little big, however, I have to admit that I recently lost weight so I may have just gotten the wrong size. The dress felt a little heavy when I first put it on but was fine throughout the night. I was very hot at the event but I LOVED that the dress was so breathable. I also didn't necessarily need a bra. The fabric is VERY stretchy so it did hug every curve as everyone else has mentioned. I felt absolutely beautiful thanks to this dress!

sexy and comfortable
high quality material, eye catcher, compliments all night. Did not wear a bra with it. Comfortable, has stretch to it. Height in the regular (R) was perfect with 2 inch heels, did not drag on floor. The display pic shows it with the sleeves straight, but looked so much better around my shoulders. This was a last minute back up dress and so glad my first option did not work out

The dress fits true to size. I love the lockout at the bag - it adds to the dress. It hugs your body but still hides the unnecessary

Lady in Red
After having my original dress become unavailable and my replacement dress not work out for me, I thought I was going to have nothing to wear to my friends' formal wedding. Thank GOODNESS this dress saved the day. With it being stretchy, it hugged every curve that I had perfectly. I honestly could have gone down a size but this still worked out. Even was able to give some lift to my already large chest. Although I wish that it could've been slightly longer (my shoes were only 2 inches), I absolutely loved it. I got compliments all night and I was able to dance in it as well. Definitely another great rental. Even with all of the trials and tribulations it took for me to get here, I will still use RTR for my future events because the customer service is unbeatable.

Dress hugs every curve! So make sure you're comfortable with that first. Can't really say anything bad about the dress. Definitely a rental you will not regret.

Amazing Dress that hugs every curve
This is probably the most amazing dress I have ever worn. I have never received so many compliments! The dress is incredible and hugs every curve. The only con is that you can't wear any underwear with the gown, because you will have lines. The dress is made from a wonderfully thick fabric so you feel perfectly comfortable all night!

Such a beautiful dress!!
Perfect fit!! This was actually my backup and I'm so glad I chose it! I am 5'9" and generally wear a size 4-6, so I rented the size 42L based on other reviewer's comments. I wore it with 3 inch heels and it was the perfect length! The back does drag longer than the front and would get caught on my heels every once in a while, especially going up stairs. But once I got the hang of walking in it it was not a problem and I was able to dance in it all night very comfortably. The material is perfectly thick, sucking you in in all the right places. I would definitely recommend!!

Curves for days!
The dress is amazing. Hands down, one of the best dresses I have rented via RTR. I am 5'6'' and 130 lbs, a 34C and typically wear a size 4. I wore 4 inch heels and the dress was just about an inch shorter than I wanted it to be. but the Long was WAY too long, even with heels. The dress is comfortable, stretchy fabric, and hugs all the right curves. It does allow you to wear a bra, no need for a strapless either (Thank God!) so you do have a little cleavage going on. The color is stunning, it is a bright lobster red color-- some hints of orange as well, but it is stunning. I would 100% recommend it. I got so many compliments and felt like a million dollars!

Elegant and classy!! Highly recommend!
LOVE!!!! Sexy and classy dress. Fits true to size. No zippers so just step into the dress. Thick fabric smooths imperfections and hugs curves. Did not have to wear a bra. Preferred straps slightly off the shoulder, if I wore the straps on my shoulders the underarm seam felt too tight. Very comfortable to dance in. Absolutely loved this dress!! Did not want to take it off. Would highly recommend for any formal occasion!

My first RTR and I couldn't have had a better experience. I tried on in store, had an amazing stylist. The dress was so comfortable, breathable but also form fitting. I chose the regular length so there wasn't much dragging. Definitely recommend.

Lovely color
Beautiful color, neckline, and length - fit was generally good but it bunched up on the hips with extra fabric and was less flattering to smoothing over midsection bumps than some of the other dresses by same designer.

Bombshell dress- but a little heavy!
I wore this dress to a formal wedding. I loved the way it fit, however I got the long which was a mistake. I'm about 5'7 and a half and the dress was much too long. Also, the material is very heavy so I would not wear it in the summer. It would be perfect for a winter affair! I got a ton of compliments on this dress. But, someone else at the wedding was wearing the same one!! So that was a bummer. Overall a very sexy dress that will make you stand out.

Didn't end up wearing this.
This fit me comfortably but i think it was made for a less hourglass body type or maybe even needed to be a little smaller because it bunched up on my hips as I walked. It is not a deep neckline, and the material is stretchy scuba almost.

"Bombshell!" was my favorite in the endless stream of compliments I received.
My boyfriend had found out he was going to have to attend his Squadron Ball just a week before and I had to scramble to find something to wear. This was a replacement dress and I couldn't have been more thrilled with it! Pros: SUPER COMFORTABLE and Sexy without showing too much skin. It made my butt look great! It COMPLETELY covered that little spot that everyone has right in the crook where your chest meets your arm. It didn't need spanx, but I wore super thin ones just to make sure the lines of the dress were perfect. I also were a strapless bra and the awesome structure of the dress made it so I didn't even notice I was wearing it. I even literally ran in it and my girls felt safe and secure. Also, even though I am short, I didn’t have to wear crazy high heels with it. Cons: The train (which was a stunning surprise) made it me just a little bit nervous while dancing. The dress is definitely meant to be worn ALMOST off the shoulder. So, while you could totally wear a regular bra with it, it doesn't have the little bra strap holder clasp things, so you do run the risk of having to fuss with your straps if you were to wear a real bra. The dress fit incredibly well, though it was the TINIEST bit too big in the hips. I am not sure if the looseness in the hips was because the dress had been stretched out by previous renters or if I actually needed to get the 42R (a size 6 regular) instead of the 44R (a size 8 regular). I don't think I have ever gotten so many insanely nice compliments from both friends, family, and acquaintances in my whole life. If I could afford it, I would buy this dress and wear it over and over and over again!
