Bold!
This dress is really sexy and the color is a bright red! I suggest sizing up in this dress because it fit me a little tight in the hip and chest area. The dress has no stretch but is really flattering and the embroidery on the sides and back are exquisite! It can't be worn with a normal bra so make sure you plan for an alternative undergarment if you rent this!

Elegant and eye-catching. Unique while being somewhat understated at the same time.
For a non-black formal dress, this is it. I paired with nude heels. The design and material were beautiful quality and is truly a designer piece.

Elegant and unique dress
The fit on the 0 was tight at first and the 2 I rented for backup skimmed my curves rather than clinging on to them like the 0, which was more comfortable. After an hour the 0 molded a bit more to my shape and became more comfortable. I'm 5' and I was SO WORRIED that this dress wouldn't fit after the first gown I ordered wasn't able to ship, and the second one was too long. RTR customer service came through once again and was able to send me a dress 3 hours before my prom! Eep! I wore 3 1/2 inch heels and it hung around an inch above the ground. The silk is a beautiful, vibrant red and the off shoulder sleeves are to die for. Subtle embroidery is beautiful too!

Beautiful red color-was a unique length and details and neckline was awesome
Was a little large on top (I am a 34C) and tight around the butt. The fit overall was great, but if you are larger on the bottom like I am, the fabric is a little thin, so bust out those spanx!

Stunning red dress!
It's a stunning red dress that just looks fabulous on pear and hourglass shapes. I would definitely wear this again. Very sexy yet elegant.

Really pretty but an awkward length for petite ladies.
Beautiful color, shiny details that reflect the light near your shoulders, but the length just looked strange on me. I'm 5'2" and even in platform heels it made me look stumpy. From the knees up, it looked fabulous though. If you're over 5'6" rent this dress it's a showstopper if you are tall enough to pull it off!

Ended up not wearing the dress because it was too wide and boxy
I normally wear a size 2 but the dress was definitely too large (went straight up and down instead of hugging curves). As another reviewer noted, order the size 0 instead if you have similar measurements.

Hot color! No internal support/hiding ability
So pretty, but there is NOTHING provided by the dress to hide your bits and bumps from the world. Also, where the back hits can create a bit of back fat from nothing when your arms are down. In pics I have no Spanx on, but am sucking in to save my life, so make your call. Measured 40, 34, 41 that day. Didn't wear it to the wedding as unlimited provided "skinnier" options, but if this had been my rental, add a pair of Spanx and if have been very happy with it! Strapless bra worked fine.

Gorgeous color and embroidery, if the shoulder straps fit you -
I ended up not wearing this, as I had ordered it as an alternate and liked my other dress better. My main complaint was that the horizontal shoulder straps, which look so beautiful on the model and in other people's review photos, were too wide for my shoulders, so they looked floppier on me. I wish they had some stretch, so they would sit where they're supposed to and also allow you to move your arms. I did love the embroidery detailing, which doesn't show as visibly in the photos.

The dress came on time and was easy to return.
This is a great dress and is super comfortable. The color is awesome and the shoulder details are very pretty. It's silk not crepe so the fabric is very light which you need to be prepared for. Definitely need to pull out the spanx to smooth out any lines. I would definitely rent it again. I wore a 10 because I was worried it would run small but it is pretty true to size. I probably could have works an 8.

Loved this color and style!
Wore it to a big gala. So unique and beautiful, covered up cleavage well but was still sexy and elegant. Fits true to size.

Slinky and long
I did not end up wearing the dress. It's super slinky and unflattering unless you have a fabulous figure. Sizing up didn't work because the length was awkward on my height (5'2").

Compliments all night
The material is pretty thin, so if you are figure conscious and want something to suck you in, this dress is not for you. Other than that, the dress is stunning, different and compliments all night are guaranteed

Unique dress - loved it!
Wore this dress to a NYE wedding - compliments all night long :) I absolutely loved the straps and the lace design was very figure flattering. This dress was sent as a replacement because of shipping errors with my original rental (floor length red gown with cut-outs). Lucky for me there were 2 girls at the wedding wearing the original dress. However, no one had this unique dress. Would definitely recommend!

A bit too big, but a beautiful dress
This was too big on me, but I'm usually between a 6 and an 8 so I'd say it runs true to size.

I wore this dress to a Black Tie event in D.C.
True to size, material has a slight stretch to it which made the dress fit like a glove. A definite stand-out dress.

Loved this dress. So comfortable all evening. Loved the ankle length too.
Ordered in a size 6 which is my usual size and it fit perfectly. Was worried about length because Im only 5'4" but it was perfect. Paired it with tan shoes and purse.
