I loved this dress! Made for amazing photos!

The fit was absolutely prefect! You can see how detailed it is just to create that perfect fit! Classy but still sexy at the same time! I loved it and my boyfriend loved it on me too! He said that the dress was made for me! I received so many complements on it! It was comfortable enough to move around in and dance the night away! Definitely would recommend it! Only con is that it doesn't have a side or back zipper. In the details it is advised to pull it from the bottom up. It was a little difficult to get the dress pulled over my butt and hips because I was trying to be careful to not pull too hard so I did it little by little. Once on it made for the perfect fit so it was definitely worth it!

Stretchy and matte

Super comfortable simply because it is so stretchy. That said, it's true to size and I wouldn't recommend sizing down just because its stretchy, as the flair needs to hit at the right place. However, there WILL be room for your booty and thighs. It's a soft sort of elastic feeling, not really a hold-you-in, but just very forgiving. It's matte and loud and SO RED, like a really excellent lipstick. It skews modern/sporty irl, so pair it with some funky jewelry, I think gold might be better with the color.

Stylist Review

This gorgeous red gown hits every mark: flattering, sexy, classy and comfortable! The stretchy fabric is accommodating for all body types. At 6'0, the Regular length was a few inches too short, and the 42R was a little bit snug (my usual size is a 44R). I recommend sizing up for your backup if you have full hips. Wear seamless undergarments with this dress; a strapless bra will be the most comfortable. It's important to note that there is no zipper so you do need to step into this dress. Pair it with nude, black or metallic heels and elegant, understated accessories.

This dress is a jaw dropper

The dress was perfect for the marine corps ball and got me so many compliments! It's incredibly flattering and hits you at all the right spots. The 42R was sold out so I ended up getting the 40R and 44R. The 44 was too big and awkwardly flared out around the stomach. The 40 fit snug but was easy to get on because it's stretchy. Would definitely recommend this dress!!!

Simple cut, perfect dress

I was nervous about renting a dress online so I ordered a back up size. I didn't even need to try on the additional size. The dress is actually stretchy but not too thin and fit perfectly. The length was a little long for me with 3' heels. One thing I liked was the neckline, it was a little lower than on the model. Overall, I'm glad I chose this dress and the return was fool proof.

Super Comfy, Chic, and Sexy all in one

Love love love this dress! It fit me in all the right places. It was the perfect mix of class and sex for the event i was attending. I wore about 3in heels and it was the perfect length. I usually wear at size 2 but had to go a size down in the dress and ended up wearing the zero. The fabric was thick and stretchy making me look slim and not showing any bumps or lumps in my body. It hugged my curves and extenuated them --which my boy friend loved. I couldn't be happier!

I wore this dress to the Marine Corps Ball and it was a great choice for the event.

In a perfect world a size 7 would have been ideal. I typically wear a size 6 however the 6 was a little tight in the bust. The 8 fit the bust perfect but was a little looser in the hips. The long length was perfect for my 5'7'' height and 4 inch heels. For those wondering the same thing I was (since the pictures don't show it), it is a high enough back that you can wear a standard bra with it. I got so many compliments on the dress.

Beautiful Red Dress

I loved this dress. I thought it ran a little large, so I would suggest ordering a size down. I am usually between a size 6 and 8, but I wore the 6 and could have maybe gone smaller. I am really tall (5'11") and even with a 3 inch heel the dress came to the top of my shoes. It is a stretchy, but thicker material that I think is really complimentary. Also, there is no zipper, but that just proves that there definitely is stretch in the material. I would recommend this dress for someone with an hourglass body shape.

Beautiful dress, not for those with narrow hips.

The dress' heavy fabric helps it hold its shape throughout the evening and it did not feel hot. I'm 5'4" and I wore 6" heels, which worked perfectly with the length of the dress allowing it to graze the floor instead of pooling on the floor. Even though this is a body con dress, you should wear your normal size. The dress is designed to be body hugging so extra fabric in a bigger size will minimize the impact and effect of the dress. Pro: The cut of the neck line allowed me to wear a full coverage bra. Con: Extra fabric at the hips, not great for those with narrower hips. This made wearing the dress tighter even more important because it minimized the appearance of bubbling fabric right at the top of my hipbone area.

Perfect Red Sultry Dress

Thick and stretchy material, beautiful true red color, perfect mermaid cut skirting. My only down side was extra fabric by my hips that I didn't fill out. Otherwise a true bombshell gem.

So many compliments. Gorgeous dress that will make you stick out at any event in a great way.

The dress was beautiful and was the perfect fit and length. I received so many compliments and felt like I really stood out in a sea of black gowns. The dress is heavy and there is no zipper, two things that surprised me a bit when I first tried it on. I highly recommend this to anyone!

Strange fit

This was my backup dress. I think it was the right size, but it had strange puckers at the hip - I'm pointing to a pucker on my right hip. Glad that I had the blue Nicole Miller as my first choice.

Great dress, great color !

Wore this dress to a holiday party and the color helped it stand out. I am pretty tall, but the L brushed the ground in flats and was an ideal length in 3-4in heels. I usually am between a size 6 and 8 and the 44L fit best. There was a slight bunching at the hips because it was a little big. The 42L was my second size, and was way too tight on the top. I would definitely rent it again!

Amazing dress for a NYE wedding

I wore this dress for a NYE wedding and absolutely loved it and got so many compliments. I am 5'11 and the dress was about 1 inch off the ground with 3 inch heels and fit like a glove. I have full bust, about 34 DDD and am about 150lbs and wore the 44L. The material is great... Thick/heavy and has good stretch to it, so it was very comfortable. I didn't want to take this dress off! The whole process of RTR was so simple and can't wait to rent again!

Pretty but didn't wear it

It is important to note that the straps feel like they are meant to fall off the shoulder, unlike the model's picture. The fabric is very stretchy. I ordered a 40 and 42 and the 40 was even a little too loose in the hips. The regular length definitely would've required tall heels. The dress was pretty but I didn't think it was worth the hefty rental price. I ended up opting for my backup dress, a less expensive Nicole Miller.

Loved this dress

The dress was very comfortable and fit well despite not having a zipper. While the material is thick and I was able to wear a full bra, the fit has to be so tight that I would not exactly call it "forgiving." There was excess material at the hips but it was not very noticeable and did not bother me. At my height, even a Long length was not as long as I would have liked, but that is typical. Overall, I loved this dress.

Gorgeous dress that I wish I owned!

This dress was perfect for my friend's Old Hollywood themed holiday party. The color is beautiful and the fit was as if the dress was made just for me! I loved that there are no zippers or anything. And I was able to size down quite a bit so that always feels good!

Loved the dress!! It was so flattering and the material was also very comfortable.

The dress looked great! I think the cut and material make it so that it would be flattering on anyone. There was a little extra material on the sides that stuck out but if you pulled the dress down it smoothed it out. The dress may not be great for warm weather because of the material.

Great for gals 5'11" and under

I'm 6'1" and 165 lbs and after reading other reviews I thought I could pull this dress off in flats. It looked pretty good. However the hips hit me too high up (more my waist area) which made the dress pucker in that area. I think someone 5'11" and under would be ideal. Despite this, I got compliments all night, as well as my husband from other people. Customer service was great! I also loved the body hugging material! I pulled the dress down a bit and put my arms over my hips when taking pictures to hide the problem area. I really wish there was a bigger selection of dresses in extra long. I know I'm not the only tall gal out there ;)

Flattering dress for curves

Very fitted dress which can be flattering to body type with thick, stretchy fabric. You will note in the description there is no zipper - a little effort to get off (over top of head). Slight chaffing by armpit but not a reason not to rent. Got lots of compliments and felt very glamorous. Worn with no bra but can wear with a regular bra as needed. Recommend this dress for your special occasion.

Classy way to make a statement

This dress is simply gorgeous!! The color is bold but really fun especially when paired with such a classic silhouette. What this picture doesn't show so well is the beautiful, small train that's perfectly pleated/draped in the back. It's SO comfortable and flattering (no spanx necessary!) I'm 5'7" and it was the perfect length with my 4" heels. It was great to dance in ( although felt like a prop sometimes since the small train can interfere with other people or fierce solos on the dance floor). AWESOME rental

Sexy & classy

I absolutely loved this dress! I first ordered a 46R just based on reviews but it ended up being too big in the hips. After having a baby I definitely have some big hips & there was even extra fabric for me. Overnighted a new size no problem! There is no zipper so it complete forms to your body. I wore a normal bra with it that didn't show all night. Fabric is a good weight & thickness. Would recommend for hourglass figures! But go a size down so you get that sexy silhouette.

I wore this for my company's awards dinner and hated to have to give it back!

I am 5'7", 170lbs, hourglass shaped and wore the 8L. I usually wear about a size 10 but the 10L wasn't available so I got the 8L as the second size which I am glad I did as it fit perfectly. I needed the length because I like to wear 3+ inch heels. There is no zipper to the dress but I was still able to step into this dress and slide it up. The fabric is a great thicker quality with give. It does have a tiny pucker where the fabric connects at the hip but if it's the right size for you, you can't tell. Overall, I loved this dress and had an amazing time!

I love not wearing the same thing more than once!

Extra room in the hips for me, but overall a really good fit. Fabric is stretchy and it doesn't have a zipper so I had to shimmy in and out of it, but once it was on it felt great! Got a lot of compliments and was comfortable bc I could wear a regular bra! Length was perfect with heels!

Eye-catching and extremely flattering!

Fell in love with this dress! It is a thicker-stretchy material that I found to be very flattering. The fit and the length were, in my opinion, true to size. The dress did pucker a little at the hips, but it didn't take away from my experience with it.

Sultry!

The fit was gorgeous. The seam in the torso was flattering to the point that it gave the illusion of a bodice. The shape of the dress was perfectly crafted to give a true hour glass figure. The dress hugged all my curves and I felt like I belonged on the run way!!! Cons: I was totally misled. I wore the 4, and ordered the 6, but the 4 was long, and scrunched up around the sides and the back--I totally could have gone down to the 2, which really would have helped with the length. Also, the straps are wide so I would recommend double sided tape or something to keep a bra in place (because of the neckline, a normal strapless bra could be tricky... mine was). Also, I did purchase double sided sticky fabric tape from JoAnns, and I "hemmed" the entire dress (per the recommendation from RTR) but because it was too heavy, as soon as I stood up, the entire hem fell--the tape just could not support the fabric. Otherwise, I looked stunning!! (#modesty)

Beautiful dress

I loved this dress. It was very comfortable to dance in, but still was very formal looking. I got the regular and it came right to the top of my foot (which worked out nicely since it wasn't dragging on the floor). The stretchy material was amazing. I just slid it on - super easy. I got the 42 and the 44 but ended up wearing the 44 (wasn't as tight on the top part). Overall, wonderful dress! Got tons of compliments and I was able to wear my regular bra!

I loved it but wore my other choice instead!

I had rented another gown for this particular event. When I tried this gown on I fell in love, but the hips on the size 6 were actually a bit stretched out, so it didn't fit as well as I would have hoped. If I get this gown again, I'll just order a 4. Overall it's a classy gown and would've looked great, had I worn it. :-)

Dress is gorgeous and makes you feel gorgeous too. Loved the long length. Went with the 38 because it fit all the way through. The 40 was too loose in the hips. Step into the gown don't pull over your head.

Stunning. Form-fitting. Comfortable. Great for tall hourglasses!

I wore this gown to my wedding and I am so happy I did! I got so many compliments, but more importantly, I felt stunning. It was so comfortable and breathable, and I had no trouble walking, sitting, dancing, anything! My only complaint was that it (similar to other complaints), puckered at the hips. I'm 5'10" so I ordered a 44L. The 42L fit, but the puckering was worse on the tighter fit. Overall, for the quality and look - the bunching was a very minor issue. Note: there's no zipper so you can step in or pull it over your head; it's very form-fitting, but is made of a thicker almost spanx-like material so you don't have to worry about a regular bra; has a baby-train in the back and a beautiful full bottom.

Beautiful dress--I felt very glamorous.

Dress material is quality and fairly thick with a nice stretch to it; I found it to be very flattering. The color definitely stands out in a crowd. I switched to the long at the last minute, and I was glad I did because with 4" heels it fell just above the floor. As others have mentioned, there is a little extra fabric around the hips, but I didn't feel that this took away from the overall look of the dress at all. I would definitely recommend renting this dress!

Beautiful!¡!

It fit kinda large around the waist. I wish I ordered a 6 instead of an 8, and I haven't worn a 6 since freshman year of high school if that's helpful lol. It puckered at my hips. If you are SUPER hourglass than it should fit just fine! It was a beautiful dress though, so many compliments!!

Dress as a Hollywood Bombshell about to win an Oscar!

This show stopping red dress fits like a glove, which highlighted my shape. The dress is breathable and easy to move in, especially on the dance floor. If you are a short girl, be careful with the length, you will probably have to wear heels with this dress. This dress is classic, when I look back at my prom picture 20 years from now I am sure I will have no regrets. This dress added to my memorable night and made me feel like a Hollywood Scarlett.

Hands down most flattering dress i have ever worn!!!

I was worried about this dress being tight and showing everything but the fabric is so thick and hugs you in all the right places. I got the 42L (size 6L) and the 44 as a back up and I'm glad I didn't go up a size because it ran true to size for me. I rented a second style as another back up and my boyfriend barely even looked when I tried it on cause he liked this one so much!

Wow.

A winner all around. Beautiful fabric, seaming, and details. Fit like a glamorous glove. Color is absolute red. The dress is comfortable, accommodated a regular bra, and did not wrinkle at all. Best rental in 3-4 years of RTR. I looked like a bombshell and felt like one as well.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!

I loved everything about this dress and the RTR process. The dress fit perfectly. Like many have said, the dress is a little big in the hips, but isn't noticeable if you have more of an hourglass figure. I loved how thick the material was, it allowed me to go without a bra. I have a pretty big chest (32DDD) and I was worried that I would be spilling out of the top, but that wasn't the case. The extra stretch allowed for a comfort fit. I loved how sexy and classy this dress made me feel. I didn't want to take it off. I will definitely be using RTR for all my formal events. I couldn't have been more happy.

The compliments never stopped -- Made for the true hourglass figure!

Best dress I've ever worn -- hands down. I wore it for my medical school formal. The compliments did not stop all night and continue on a few days later! A beautiful red number that stood out in the sea of black dresses. If you have an hourglass figure, this dress is for you. Normally, with my wide hips, yet petite frame, it is a nightmare trying to find a dress but the fabric and dress felt as if it were made just for me. You won't regret renting this dress!! I normally wear a 6, but wore the 4. Also, I'm 5 feet tall and I wore 5 inch platform heels and the dress hit the floor perfectly. Also, the train in the back is gorgeous as well.
