This dress was my first experience with RTR and it was great. I had actually rented a different dress but they didn't have the belt for the dress and offered me a replacement of my choosing. This one was a perfect choice! It's form fitting and a stretchy but forgiving material (not satiny like it looks). Highly reccommend!

This dress is beautiful. It runs true to size or even a little small. I did have to fight my bra showing a little; I would have done better wearing a demi cup bra or using some dress tape. Overall, I loved wearing it.

There was no size tag in the dress, but I will assume I was sent the correct size I asked for. Runs short from the waist to the shoulders. Also, the bodice lining rolls out at the neckline. Zipper was stitched so close to the teeth, made it VERY difficult to zip up or down.

This dress is gorgeous on the right body type. You must be tall for this to look its best - I recommend 5'6" or above. The fabric is not as high quality as I would have liked - the photo is misleading in that it appears to be a satin-like finish, but it is a thicker, textured material. I am 5'8" and my measurements are 34C-25-35 and a size 2 fit like a glove.

For anyone that is a pear this is not the dress for you. It's structurally gorgeous but the folded detail in front only pooches out in all the wrong places if you have any hips or belly. And the red was more faded than I expected. I love RTR but this was not a winner for me.

I had high hopes for wearing this dress for a romantic Valentines Day dinner. I am usually a size 4. The color and quality of the dress was lovely, the lining was silk. However, the hips of both the size 4 was small and tight (thick twill blend fabric with zero stretch), except for the front pleats which unfortunately made me look like I had a paunch. The size 6 fit better in the hips, however after getting it zipped up completely in the back, the neck to waist of the size 6 was too low for my 34d chest for modesty. I returned both dresses sadly.

I'm glad I ordered two sizes (size 2 and size 4). I'm usually a size 2. I ended up wearing the size 4 and it fit like a glove. I wore it to an evening fund raiser and I felt it was a good choice. My husband LOVED it - the color, the sexy fit (but not too sexy) and the hint-of-cleavage neckline.

I had the dress cleaned. It is actually a vibrant red, I'm not sure why it looked faded when I got it. My measurements are 34C-26-36. The size 4 fit like a glove but i wanted a littlle more wiggle room in the hips. I couldnt try on the size 6 bc the zipper wouldnt come down. The zipper is an extreme issue. Even on the size 4 it was a bit hard to get down (my boyfriend had to do it). This was before the dress was on. You won't be able to get in and out of this dress by yourself. Outside of that it's a beautiful dress and people are still talking about how great I looked in it.

I think the dress would have been great if the zipper on the size 10 actually worked. I tried to zip it all the way down to try it on but it would not budge! Also the fabric was not as high quality has it seemed online. It was still a beautiful dress nonetheless.

Love RTR! But unfortunately, this one looks nothing like the picture. First, its more of a bittersweet orange than a vibrant red. Also, it's not satin-y like it looks here, it's actually a thick, cotton, textured material, almost denim-like, so it doesn't look dressy or sophisticated. Fit wise, unflattering! If you're little in the middle but still busty, this one won't work. It's loose and pooches way out where those folds are so you look much bigger than you are and then the top part wouldn't even zip (I'm a 32dd and tried both the 2 and the 4). It's also pretty long, which doesn't help the effect. I got this for a gala and definitely couldn't use it so I'd recommend ordering a back up style!

I really liked this dress. It's beautifully crafted and looks really classy. I'm very thin but a bit bustier than most girls my size and this dress complimented that without looking slutty. It also gave me more of an hourglass shape, which I really liked. It's a bit less shiny in real life than it is in the picture, and the detail at the waist is less pronounced, but still noticeable. The only problems I had were that it was difficult to hide my bra straps, and the satin lining was visible around the neckline, but the latter was only mildly bothersome and I think it was more of a problem that was created when the dry cleaners steamed/ironed it, so I don't know if this would happen again. Overall, the dress is gorgeous and I got tons of compliments on it. I am 5'8", 110 lbs., size 0 fit perfectly.

Unimpressive

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This dress just did not work for me. It is very small in the chest as well as the thighs and bulky in the middle. It did nothing to accentuate my figure. My friend previously rented this dress and looked amazing in it. If you have a smaller chest and tiny waist, this dress could work for you. I am usually a size 0 but even the 2 was hard to zip. The detail on the front also gave me a slight pooch. Also, for a $150 rental, the material wasn't that impressive. Would have been a lot better in a satin or even stretchy cotton. Material has no stretch or shine to it.

I loved this dress! It's sexier in person than the picture makes you think. It definitely runs small so order a size up.
