Love this color!
Love this dress! The lace is a fuschia pink with a red tone outline which makes the color in this dress POP! In a good way. The midriff is just enough skin and the slit in front is just the right amount of leg. Would definitely wear this super comfy dress again!!!

Great dress - fits smaller than i thought, so i'm glad i got the smaller size!
I thought the arms would be constricting but they were really light and breathable. The whole dress was very light, not as heavy as i thought. It fit great - have curvy hips and it wasn't overly snug or awkward. The cut out was at the perfect height - not too high/low. Overall great dress and I would absolutely recommend to anyone for a wedding or event! It was just a little longer than I would have liked, but I am a little on the short side (5'5")

Amazingly comfortable.
I would rent this again. The lining was stretchy and so comfortable I would have rented this for a wedding where I was sitting or dancing. I wore it to a rooftop cocktail party and felt simply elegant. The zipper is a little tricky bc of the lace fabric. I was the first to wear this dress so I imagine with dry cleaning and wear it will become harder to zip. I suggest bending over slightly to zip so the lace doesn't get caught when standing straight up to zip.

Would you say this dress is appropriate for a semi-formal wedding by the beach?

Stylist Review!
Simply stunning! The beautiful magenta color really pops, and the top has subtle hints of sequins in the lace. I felt so elegant, yet sexy with just the right amount of skin showing! This dress runs true to size, and we suggest going up a size as a backup as the fabric has no stretch. Although it is a fitted silhouette, it is very comfortable and the sleeves are not restricting. The fabric is also very breathable and light. I can't wait to wear this to an evening wedding and dance the night away! Pair this dress with simple gold accessories to complete the look.

Fun dress for a formal affair!
This dress was super fun! I was nervous about the open midriff, but it was very tasteful and I wasn't worried thought the night since the dress is all one piece. People didn't notice it wasn't a top and skirt unless they saw the zipper in the back. I thought this dress ran a bit large, the length was great.

Bested dressed of the night!!
This dress is SO gorgeous, and I have NOTHING negative to say. I actually received this dress as a back-up dress when my original dress I rented for my friend's wedding had issues with the material. RTR was SO helpful and overnighted me this dress in time for the wedding! I was a little skeptical about it at first because I wanted something a little brighter in color and was worried I would be revealing too much skin... BOY WAS I WRONG! I was SO pleasantly surprised. The dress is actually much more fuchsia colored so it brightened up the dress a lot. Also, the see-through mesh in the middle was the perfect mix of classy and edgy without being too revealing (I wore it to a wedding in a church) - gives it a little something "extra". I have never received so many compliments. People said I was the best dressed guest there! I have also had several friends wanting to rent this dress for weddings coming up because they liked it so much :) True to size, not tight material at all (maybe even a little stretch) perfect for all body types I would think!

Sexy but comfortable!
I am a true size 6, and I wore this dress in the size 6R--- it fit perfectly! It hugged my curves but was forgiving. The skin-toned mesh panel at natural wait was sexy, but not too revealing. I felt completely comfortable dancing in this dress all night long!

Gorgeous, but a tad long if you're short!
This is a gorgeous dress, but I wished it was a tad shorter for my 5'4" frame. The middle sheer section did remind me of like a figure skating costume for some reason and threw me a bit (maybe because I'm paler and the sheer section made my stomach look way tanner). I fit in the 6 comfortably, but typically wear a 4 more often. I think this is a better rental for taller and tanner girls.

Perfect dress for an evening wedding. The color and details were perfect.
The only con was my jewelry often snagged on the dress due to the material of the dress however the pros outweighed this. I definitely recommend this dress and would rent it again.

Beautiful color and lace
This dress fit really nicely. I didn't read the description or comments closely so was surprised that it was not 2 pieces. The only negative to the dress was the nude mesh fabric between the top and skirt was loose so I felt like it was obvious it was not 2 pieces.

Gorgeous dress flattering for lots of body types. Has stretch.
Dress was beautiful. Has stretch in it so recommend getting your 'true' size and then 1 size smaller. 1 piece dress with mesh in the middle (looks sheer). Bottom has overlay piece which is flattering on the tummy area. Would highly recommend as this is great for multiple body types.

This piece is gorgeous and so well made. I ended up not being able to wear it since the 4 was not able to be shipped and the 6 was just a little too big. It's such a beautiful dress. I hope I have another occasion to rent it soon!

Gorgeous dress
The dress is gorgeous! I felt so good wearing it and got multiple compliments. I have a small waist and thicker thighs, so the mesh at the waist was not completely stretched all the time but it did not look bad. The dress is comfortable and stretchy and bonus points for being able to wear a regular bra.

Standout dress, perfect for fall weddings
Dress is beautiful! Got so many compliments. The mesh panel makes it look like two pieces. The skirt of the dress has a bit of stretch and room for hips. Only complaint is the top of the dress was a little restrictive on my arms so beware if you have larger arms/shoulders. Would definitely rent again!

Perfect for a fall wedding
Fit was true to size. The length is longer in back but was cute for midi style. I have a larger bust, 36D, and it was a little tight but I got away with just wearing pasties and it worked great.

This dress style and color was so original!
I loved wearing this dress to a close friend's wedding. Perfect color and length for an early fall wedding! Unfortunately the size 2 was returned damaged and would not make it to me in time. I was mailed the size 4 and it was pretty loose in the waist and arms and the length seemed long for the size. But got tons of compliments and was very comfortable! I would definitely re-order this dress for a future event.

Love the crop look
This dress was just okay -- it's a pretty color and cool style, but the mesh in between the two layers makes it feel too much like a figure skater outfit. No one commented on or really noticed the mesh (it was pretty dark at the restaurant), but I didn't feel as confident as I usually like to. That said, it was really pretty, I got lots of compliments, and it was a flattering fit.

The color and mesh piece make this dress stand out.
The fit is slightly large. The color is flattering, as is the detail near the hip. You can wear a normal bra, which is always nice. I'm 5'7 and this dress went to my knees, so consider that if you're shorter. I paired it with Kate Spade "Trellis" collection earrings and cuff, and nude pumps.

Unique and flattering
This dress was a back up when the one I originally ordered was damaged. This dress made me feel beautiful and sexy without showing off too much skin. Got tons of compliments! Super comfy and flattering on the tummy area! Would recommend this for different body types. More magenta than burgundy.

Great fit, really comfortable, stylish and trendy!
Rented this for an awards show and it was exactly what I was looking for. Color was on trend (Nicole Kidman wore the same color!) fit was perfect. I loved the length and the sleeves for just the right amount of coverage to stay comfortable. Loved, LOVED this dress. Styled with simple drop stone earrings and laced open toe booties.

This dress was exactly what I expected.
I normally fit into petites and range from sizes 2-6. Size 2 fit perfectly but the middle mesh was a bit awkward at first. It was definitely worth it because of the beautiful color, detail and unique features. I was comfortable the entire night, received compliments on my overall look and didn't feel like I showed too much skin during my friend's conservative wedding. Next time, I would go with something darker and sexier.

gorgeous color, pretty accents, tons of compliments!
the dress fit true to size, its strategically lined and gives the illusion of wearing a crop top and skirt without having to actually share your belly button with strangers. I'm pretty short, so i was concerned about the length but the slit hit right mid thigh and i was very happy with it. My only complaint is the nude mesh panel should be tighter. if you sit or slouch, it also moves and can make you look ripply or like you have rolls. so... i guess it encourages good posture? Regardless, i would wear this again. Its gorgeous and i got tons of compliments on it.

Evening wedding
The dress was nice, don't get me wrong, but I was anticipating the dress to look much better on. It didn't give me the "wow" factor I was hoping for. My boobs are large and waist small, so the middle was really loose. I probably needed a zero in the waist.

RTR Team Review!
Beautiful dress, incredibly well made with gorgeous detailing. It fit well, and I think would be really flattering on someone a little more slender, all of the fabric combined with my larger hips made me feel like I was wearing a beach coverup on bottom.

Absolutely loved this dress and did not want to return it! The color was so rich and amazing. I wore a 16 because it was the only one available but I'm usually a 14 but it for just fine. I got so many compliments in this dress. This dress also has a little stretch to it.

unique touches, gorgeous color, very flattering fit
I rented this dress for a fundraiser I was chairing. The theme was "A Royal Event." ala Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry. I had a tiara to keep in theme and it went well together. I got so many compliments. The dress color is more pink than burgundy. I paired with fuschia pumps and sapphire jewelry. I am a little too short-waisted for the nude middle. The fabric would bunch slightly if I didn't sit up perfectly straight, so I had great posture all night! I wore with nude demi-bra that did not show through and control top nude hose. It looked fantastic!

Great color, great fit
I wore this dress to a friend's wedding. I am 5 months postpartum and back to my regular size but was concerned as this was my first event post baby. This dress was fantastic. The color was stunning and the length perfect. This is not a form fitting dress, so for those of you that like your dresses tight you may want to look elsewhere. I received a ton of compliments all night but sadly didn't take any photos. I would rent or buy this dress again!
