Beautiful dress! Perfect fit that complimented my body well.

I wore this dress for my parents wedding and 30th anniversary. I could have gone for a smaller size, as I like it snug, but it was true to size. I paired it with simple black heels, a matching purse, and pearl accessories.

The fit and cut were very flattering. Fabric was forgiving. All in all my favorite rental to date. I wish I could keep it!

SO many compliments, I felt amazing all night!

This dress is more of a cranberry color than a bright red. The color is really pretty and flattering. The style is unique but felt very appropriate for a formal work event. I am pretty short and the length still worked well, it hit right below my knee. I sized up for my backup and ending up wearing the larger size. Both sizes fit but it was easier to get in and out of the larger one. I got so many compliments it almost became comical. People I didn't know (including a US Senator!) came up to me to tell me how nice I looked and how much they liked the dress. Basically, this rental came with a free self esteem boost. :) This is my first RTR experience and I will definitely rent again.

I got SO many compliments on this dress and it was super comfortable!

Very comfortable dress! I thought I would need the larger of the two sizes (42), but I almost think that I needed a size down from the one that I wore (40) just because of the length. I have a shorter torso, so in order for the straps to stay down on my shoulders like they are supposed to, I had to pull the bodice part down more, but if it did it too much, I would expose a little too much cleavage where the slit is. The dress also doesn't have a zipper, so it's an over-the-head try on. Overall great dress, though! I wanted to keep it! :)

The fabric is elastic so it hugs well to the curves of your body.

A red dress in a sea of LBDs

I made the perfect choice with this dress! It traveled well in a suitcase. I unpacked and let it hang about 24 hours before wearing, and the wrinkles were almost nonexistent. The fabric is soft and durable and very form fitting. I ordered sizes 42 and 40 because I am smaller in the bust than hips, but the 42 fit perfectly. The length wasn't too long, which is something I worry about with clothes that aren't petite sizing, but I liked it hitting right below my knee. I found it easier to put on feet first than pulling over my head. I wore one shoulder on and the other off because I liked the asymmetry look, and I chose gold heels and accents. I received lots of compliments and felt fabulous. I would definitely rent this again.

Guaranteed to stand out from the crowd

I was nervous when the size up wasn't available but the material has some give. It was snug, with some of the asymmetric folds not lying quite right but the accessories made this. It was comfortable to wear all night and definitely stood out from the crowd!

Gorgeous, elegant, and classy!

Thank you, RTR! Loved this dress! Wish I owned it. No complaints. Just want to point out for future renters: to wear the strap off the shoulder requires some readjusting. It's not annoying or anything, but, it does move when dancing. The length and fit were perfect. I wore a strapless bra. As noted on the website's description of the dress you will need to step into it and pull up over your torso and shoulders. The dress is stretchy and doesn't have any zippers. Rent this dress...it's a show stopper!

The stylist picked this out and it worked great

Dress was gorgeous with tags still on it! The dress I ordered was damaged so this is one that the RTR stylist picked out for me and t worked out great. There is no zipper so have to slide it on. Material is very thick but stretchy. I think the correlation size for 44 is size 8 which I'm usually a 6 in dresses and I could have MAYBE gone down a size. Loved it!!

Gorgeous and sophisticated dress

Loved everything about this dress! The color is gorgeous, the fit is sexy and sophisticated, very comfortable. The neckline is so unique you will not need a necklace. I sized down to get the extra snug and it was perfect. I called when my original dress didn't fit and got this delivered the morning of the wedding. The service rent the runway provides is superb! Highly recommend!

Amazing color, perfect fit, overall showstopper!

Rented this dress for a formal collegiate event sponsored by the board of trustees and it did not disappoint! I was worried that with the ponte material that the dress would fit more like spanx but to my surprise, I had room to move and it was perfectly comfortable! Only thing was I decided to not wear a bra due to the cutout on the side but since the material was thick, there was no issue. I was complimented left and right in this dress and it was appropriate in nature and the color really is spectacular. I was so upset to have to return this but my experience with it was amazing!

Amazing fit + so comfy!

Tricky to "slip" on but so comfortable and worth it! Fits true to size. Perhaps would be too tight around chest for anyone bigger than a C cup. Def need a strapless bra! Loved it!

Only downside was a small gap where the material cuts across on the top right side, but I think it was more noticeable to me compared to others.

Didn't make my night

I'm the brunette on the left!!! Possibly the most disappointing thing about my order was that both sizes of this dress smelled like Windex or dry cleaning solution. Yikes! But, I didn't have another option so I went with it the 42 I thought the 42 was a large fit for a "4" and the 44 was huge. I would have preferred a snugger bottom half, I should have gotten the 40 and the 42 as back up. Size down! As it was, I found very little curvy about this dress past the bust area and it turned out longer than I had expected. I looked nice but it wasn't the show-stopper that I wanted.

Everyone loves a red dress

I rented this for a 4th of July Weekend Wedding. Everyone loved the dress and it was comfortable. I was kind of I between sizes but opted for the larger one because it fit my large shoulders better even though it was a little longer in me. I was able to step into it to avoid pulling it over my head, as some people said it was hard to get on. The only thing to note is that it is a little heavier material so if it is going to be hot out keep that in mind. I wish I could keep this one in my closet!

Felt good reuniting with my college roomates

The dress was pretty but very tight- I typically wear a 2-4 and I think a 6 would have fit my body better. Pretty color, I really stood out when most ladies were wearing black.

Absolutely stunning

Perfect fit. Great color. Loved the cut out detail and the way the dress sat on the shoulders. Perfect length for a formal evening. The cut of the dress really accentuated my figure without being too tight. I received tons of compliments that night and for days after.

Bold bright fitted red dress was perfect for a wedding!

I felt beautify and classy all night in this stunner! Ordered a 2 and 4 and 4 fit perfectly. It is a thick stretching material and the cut of the dress fits your curves perfectly. I wore mine with spanks to smooth me out in the back but could be worn without.

More than a simple red dress

The design of this dress was interesting, classy and sexy. It sucks everything in (did not need spanx) but is comfortable at the same time. The material is thick and structured enough that I didn't need a bra but would encourage seamless underwear. The additional material in the front and cut at the shoulders made this one more than just another red dress.

I'd love to keep this beauty!

I rented this for an evening at The Greenbrier resort and I couldn't have been happier. I got the 42 and the 44 and ended up wearing the 44 for the extra room in the bust. I am a size 4/6 in pants and 34G and the 42 was just too small across the back and in the front. The skirt was slightly big but still kept a great shape throughout the night. Thick substantial fabric and a gorgeous color. I got so many compliments - from both men and women Great choice for a special evening out. : )

Great dress!!

I wish I had a full length photo to share, but the day was a blur and I didn't get one . This dress fit perfectly and I had a ton of compliments. I did wear a strapless bra with it . The length was right below my knee which truly made the dress . The lines on the dress are amazing. Truly an awesome dress.

Gorgeous color!

This dress is basically a red version of pretty spanx. It sucks everything in. I could have sized down, but I was afraid it would be super tight for work. With a little looser fit, it still smoothed out all the bumps. 2 problems with the dress 1)there is boning inside that was a little bent and didn't sit flat on my body 2) it could use lining, I wore this on a super hot day in Manhattan and it showed sweat.

Showstopper!

I was nervous when I first tried on the dresses. They were both very snug. I ordered a 4 and 6. I decided to wear the 4 because it looked better. I think it was less material to bunch up. I wore Spanx to make sure things stayed smooth. The dress is the perfect length to not have to worry about it riding up. I paired this red stunner with sapphire blue peep toes with an encrusted heel cap. I was able to dance comfortably and I received compliments all night.

Unexpected but perfect!!

I received this dress as a substitute when the dress I ordered was unavailable at the last minute. Even though I had a back up dress, I choose to wear this one! It was form fitting in the most perfect way. I have a large bust so the top was a little tight, which allowed me to wear it without a bra. There was enough support so I was comfortable and didn't have to spend my evening adjusting as I danced the night away. The material is thick but also has a bit of stretch to it. The color was bright and bold. I got a lot of compliments throughout the night!

Absolutely great dress!!

I got two sizes and reading all the reviews said the smaller size sucks everything in better. It's so true!! I got a 4 and a 2. I'm normally a 4 and it fit but the two just sucked me in al the right places!! So many compliments and I love the bright red color!! I am telling everyone about RTR and I will defiantly be renting again!
