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!!!

Everyone kept staring at me and commented on how beautiful the dress was
The fit was exactly what I was looking for. It hugged all the right places and still looked very elegant and classy.

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.

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!

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 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!

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!

Lady in red!
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.

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!!

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!

Stunning!
The color of this dress is stunning. The style and material were very flattering. There was extra material around my hips. The dress was the perfect length in a "long" with a 3 inch heal (I'm 5'7). I was able to wear a regular bra and I think I could have gotten away with no bra as the material of the dress is thicker and more structured. Absolutely loved this dress!

The color and the fit and style of this dress are spectacular!
I wore this to the Suncoast chapter Emmy Awards. Received so many compliments!!!!! The fabric Is wonderful. I chose this picture to show how the skirt flows on the bottom. I 5'8" and wore 4 inch heels and the dress reached the floor. I would go with regular if you are any shorter. I am a size 10 right now, and 46 fit very comfortably. Loved wearing this dress!!! Quality! Quality!

I can not say enough good things about RTR. Chelsea the stylist was absolutely amazing !!
This dress is stunning!! It was so comfortable and flattering !! I ordered the 10 and the 8. I am wearing the 8 but could have gone down to a size 6, the dress runs big and puckered a little at the hips. The 6 would have smoothed it out the puckering but RTR didn't have it :( but they were amazing and sent me new dresses right away !! I ultimately decided to go with this one because it's so beautiful and I couldn't get it out of my head !! Can't wait to use RTR again next month for another Wedding!!

This dress is beautiful and classy!
There is slight puckering around the hip area, but if you're more hourglass or pear shaped and you size down, that would probably fix it.

The hips did pucker a little bit, that's why it got only 4 stars. Otherwise, the dress was stunning on its own. Would defiantly recommend!

Everything came on time and did not disappoint.
I wore this dress to my senior prom and I loved it!! I felt absolutely stunning in this dress and received many compliments all night long. I ordered this last minute and was worried it wouldn't fit, but it was perfect and was long enough. The only issue I had was this dress was that it puckered at the hips so I had to constantly pull it down so it wouldn't make my hips look weird. Other than that, it is a beautiful dress and I am so glad I chose it for prom.

This dress was so incredibly comfy and held me in! I wore it to a 4 pm Sat evening wedding. Was afraid it was to dressy but it was just right! I went with a big earring and skipped the necklace! I would order this dress again in a heart beat! #redHot

Back up dress
So this was my backup dress after the 6 in my original was delivered damaged. I wanted something that I thought was safe just in case my first choice didn't work out. I am relatively curvy. I was not crazy about the fabric - it was a bit heavy, but that's good because it totally covered up lumps. As the other reviews mentioned (and as you can see) even when I pulled it down, there was some fabric bunched on my hips which I thought was nuts because I have plenty of hips. The regular length would have been ok if I planned on wearing flats (the 44L was not available). It also had a gap between my butt and my back. That tends to happen as I do have a sizable bum. Needless to say, my boyfriend loved this on me, but I opted for my first choice. I hope this helps!

Sexy red dress
I rented this and another dress for the awards gala. This one was just a bit too big in the hips and a little short. I'm 5'9 and should have got the long option. I decided to wear the other dress but would definitely wear this in the future with the size adjustments. Gorgeous dress.

In love with Chiara!
I found the designer that fits me best. I am usually a size 4 but in La Petite Robe di Chiara Boni actually wear a 38 (or size 2 us). This was a 40 as 38 was not available so a bit less form-fitting but still worked. Highly recommend for curvy/athletic women.

Showstopper.
This dress was incredible. I have a petite frame with a medium size chest and this dress fit perfectly. I didn't need to wear a bra because the dress was tight enough that it held my boobs in and up and it was incredibly flattering. It doesn't have a zipper so you literally just pull it on, which I liked. It was just stretchy enough to pull on, but tight enough to fit like a glove. I wouldn't say that I have an hourglass shape, but this dress definitely made it look like I did. I cannot recommend it enough.

Head turner, LOVED IT
This dress was incredible & everything about it was perfect. I did read in a few comments that there is an inner bust lining that folds up and you can see the slight bunching of fabric under the bust, but I really didn't have that issue. I got so many compliments all night and even days after about how beautiful the dress was on me. Hands down you should rent this. Also, my notes say I rented the 38R, but it was in fact the 38L- and that worked for me (I'm 5'4", wore 4" heels)

Absolutely stunning dress. Wore this to a black tie wedding and received compliments all night long. The dress hugs you in all the right places. I'm curvy and it didn't make me feel too revealed at all. The dress is thick but was truly the perfect one. Made me feel like a queen!

Fit like a glove - beautiful well made dress
This was my backup dress after my first choice wasn't returned in time for RTR to send it to me. Beautiful color and fit. Received tons of compliments all night long from strangers and guests of the wedding I attended - people kept calling it "the Oscars dress". Made me feel like a movie star. Next time I'd wear my hair up with this dress though. I'd definitely rent it and other dresses from this designer again.

Amazing dress!
This was my first time using RTR. I had rented a dress the previous week for a wedding, however, the dress did not come in time for me to wear it. RTR first sent me two dresses overnight to see if those could make it in time for the wedding. They didn't, but they refunded my money and I was able to rent this dress for a wedding the following weekend. Their customer service was fantastic and I was very happy with their efforts to get me a dress. This red dress hugs in all the right places and I got so many compliments the whole night and after! My only complaint was that this dress was a little short... in the picture it doesn't look like it but with my heels on the dress fell above my feet. I rented the 38R. I'm not that tall and would never think to order a long dress, just something to think about. My heels aren't very tall either. It could have just been that specific dress. All in all, I will definitely be using RTR again!

Amazing dress!
This dress made me feel amazing! It's a little heavy and the armpit area fit a little tight on me but everything else was perfect. I'm 5'7 and 130lbs and wore a 38L. It was long but I wore about 3 in. heels which was perfect. I would definitely recommend this dress, wish I could've kept it!

Sexy and elegant
I was sent this dress as a backup for a military ball. This may have been the sexiest dress I've ever put on in my life- I felt incredible! I ultimately decided to wear my original pick because this dress shows EVERYTHING and I wanted to be sure I'd feel comfortable all night long eating, dancing, sitting, etc without feeling like I needed to "suck it in." Shapewear (and underwear) lines of any kind will 100% show under the fabric, so keep that in mind. I would definitely rent this again, maybe for an event where I knew I'd be a bit more stationary, or after a little more time at the gym ;)

Definitely jaw dropping
The fit was true to size. I did feel like because I am a dd I had to lift my dress up a bit several times so I wasn't spilling out. It was curve hugging and the red was gorgeous. I wore this to my husbands Marine Corps Ball and I did actually see one other woman with the same dress.

Unsure if it would fit me right- FITS ANY BODY TYPE GORGEOUSLY
When I looked at all the other pictures in the reviews I kind of had mixed feelings about this dress, wasn't really sure if it would look great on my body type, but it fits perfectly and because it's a thicker stretchy material it hugs curves in all the right places while sucking everything in like spanx! Lol If you are in between two sizes I would definitely size down because the bigger one I ordered still fit but was a little more loose around the hip area which causes some fabric to bunch up a bit. Overall it was a great dress and I was complimented all night and also very confortable! I am 5'3" and wore 2 inch heels and it was perfect length. You can also wear a regular bra with it! Rent this dress!
