I didn't want to send it back!

Perfect professional shift dress. Loved the front pockets! Wore this three times because it so fit my style (and my body) and got so many compliments each time.

Love it!! Super comfortable.

Perfect work to date night dress. Appropriate conservative length for work. Beautiful color. Runs large - am usually a 6-8 and the 6 was large. Could size down to 4, but the 6 still looked good and was super comfortable!

High quality construction. A little tight through the arms.

Classy style. I felt great wearing this with short booties. The arms/ shoulders were a little snug but not enough for me not to wear it. I would rent again! Great for larger bust.

Just so-so

Cute enough dress; however the color had an orange hue, which doesn't pair well with my pale complexion. Opted not to wear. Very thick and forgiving material, fit well.

Christmas Party Cheer

The fit was so perfect and you could tell the material was of highest quality! Received several compliments and you could wear a normal bra with this one! Perfect red color for the holidays!

Stand out from the crowd.

Wore this to an event and to a family gathering over the holidays. The bright color definitely made it stand out, and I got a lot of compliments on it - so many my brother started keeping count. It has pockets which is always a plus for me. Only negative was that it was a bit tight in the shoulders but not enough to size up at least for me.

Forgettable

It felt boxy, and large but I don't think I could go smaller. I didn't feel good in it so I didn't wear it. Fabric was thick and color was vibrant but it just didn't seem like it did anything for me.

Great color, boxy shape

The color is vibrant and a great true red, but the dress has a very boxy cut and runs large so I didn't wear it.

Standout work dress

Dress was a brilliant shade of red! Light fabric and super comfortable. The fit across the chest from should to should is a bit tight and limits reach sometimes (I am active). I had fun wearing the dress and it was very flattering!

Tight in the arms and shoulders

This dress fit me very oddly. I believe I am pretty proportional, however this dress was big in the hips and belly and super tight in the shoulders and arms. I could barely lift my arms while it was on. I would not recommend this for someone with muscular or chubby arms.

Glamorous in Red

Beautiful and chic. Felt like a modern Jackie O. Got compliments galore! Was a little snug on my upper arms, but it wasn't the kind of party I would be raising my arms above my head whilst dancing on the bar, so I was fine! This might be my favorite RTR dress ever. I would probably have bought it, if it weren't for the arm issues.

Great summer sheath for work and play!

I am obsessed with this dress. It does run a tad big, I think I could have sized down. The length is doable for work. I put a scarf on to cover the keyhole to make the look more professional. The tailoring and details are amazing. Could easily be a staple in my wardrobe.

Perfect dress for a petite girl

I rented this dress as a back up, but ended up wearing another one to the wedding since this one was not formal enough. Although I did not wear to the wedding, this dress fits like a glove. I would buy it if rent the runway had it on sale. It's definitely a staple.

Festive Red Dress

Wore this for a date night while on vacation in nyc around Christmas. It was a backup dress as my other dresses didnt arrive on time. Runs large - I can range from an 8-12 depending on the style. The sleeves were incredibly tight as some reviewers mentioned. The arms on the 10 were tight as well so it wasnt worth sizing up as the 10 was too baggy.

Pretty and very well made dress but felt like I was wearing a tent.

A little retro vibe going on with this one. I'm petite. Sleeves were a great length. Dress was beautiful. I'd size down but I'd be a little concerned it would then be tight in the bust. I'd say size to the bust.

Workplace showstopper

Perfect fit - looks short on the model but I'm 5'7" and it was a tasteful 3-4 inches above my knee. Got a million compliments! Would be leery if you have a larger chest.

Perfectly bright red--it pops!

Could there be a more comfortable, pretty dress? The color is beautiful. The fit is rather loose--but in a Jackie O-stylish way that's very feminine. I would recommend ordering a size smaller than normal. Oh, and it has pockets!

Beautiful - but size down!

I wore the dress despite it being a size too large. The fabric is thick and beautiful, and the color is so much brighter than the photo. Despite it being too big, I received a lot of compliments on the dress! Will be renting again in a smaller size.

Dress didn't work for my body type

This was one of my least favorite of all my rentals so far. The material is thick but unforgiving in that even the slightest bit of backside cellulite was highlighted in a terrible way. I rented a size down due to other reviews' advice, which was a wise move, except then the sleeves in the shoulders were exceptionally tight. I could barely raise my arms out in front of me. It also looked huge in the waist because of how tight it fit in the hips, but I should add that I do have a large butt and wide hips. This dress is strangely meant for the straight & narrow body type, but still size down. And wear spanx.

Super comfortable dress for work.

The color and fabric of this dress are amazing. I wore it with tights and some pumps. It did run a little big. I will size down when I rent it again.

Stylist Review

The color of this dress was perfect - bright but not overwhelming, which can be hard to find! I'm wearing a size 10, but I would go for the 8 next time because I felt like it was a little loose all over. This dress would be super easy to dress up with a pair of heels and some gold jewelry, or it could be everyday-wear with a pair of flats and simpler jewelry. It was very comfortable and I wouldn't hesitate to wear this for a long day of work or leisure.

Luxe fabric and color

You can tell that this is an expensive dress by the fabric and the attention to detail on construction. I sized up to a 10 so it would fit in the bust. The dress fabric is beautiful, and it hangs perfectly. It is a shift, so not fitted on the bottom. I loved the two big pockets in the front. I got lots of compliments on this dress.

Great dress!

I worried the sheath would be snug, so I ordered a size up. It fits great and I could have definitely gone with my original size. The red color is rich and I plan to rent it again closer to the holidays. It was perfect for work and will work well for work social events, or even a date night. Highly recommend.

This was cute, chic, wearable. The only thing is that the clasp was bent so it didn't stay closed.

Wearable and chic. It's a somewhat heavy fabric, so the structural elements really come through - the a-line, the stitching across the torso.

This was a beautiful red dress that I wore to Christmas Eve Service & to a party afterward!

Very comfortable to wear the whole evening! I loved the material and I didn't have to wear any special undergarments to hold anything in! Had a lot of compliments. The only thing I would say is that it didn't have the quality of a dress over $1000.00.

Really chic

Appropriate for work - ended just above my knees. Slight a-line, almost mod, silhouette. The material is nice and thick and doesn't seem to wrinkle. Upper arms are a bit snug. so if you're at all muscular (I'm not), perhaps size up.

Made for me!

This is the perfect dress for an athletic pear-shaped figure! I'm a 4 on top, 6 on bottom so dresses are usually too tight around the hips/quads or too baggy and shapeless through the shoulder and midsection, but this one is a real winner! It fit perfectly on top, and had plenty of room to move in the bottom without looking big and sloppy. The length was work-appropriate without being frumpy. I loved that the material was thick enough that the dress didn't need a slip/liner...they create too much static cling in the winter when worn with tights, but not too thick that it couldn't be worn in fall/spring as well. And those pockets... they are awesome and the dress still manages to be sleek despite them. I was hesitant about the color when it first came...it's definitely more of an orangey tomato red than a true red...a color that doesn't usually look good on my pasty complexion, but it did look nice since my skin is tanned from a recent vacation. If this came in blue or green, I'd have to buy it despite the hefty price...it's that close to perfect!!!

Got tons of compliments on this dress. I wore it to work and for a networking event. Everyone commented on what a great color it is. Tight in the shoulder and arms but that may just be me, I have that problem with a lot of dresses.

I felt wonderful!

I wore this for a New years weekend wedding. There was a room full of black holiday dresses and me, in red. Its a heavier fabric but it felt wonderful on.
