This dress was phenomenal.
I can't even begin to say how much I loved this dress. I felt amazing in it and didn't want to send it back! It was actually a back-up dress that was sent last minute after my first choice ended up being unavailable due to damage from a previous renter. As always, RTR's customer service is always excellent, and they helped me find another option easily. This dress ended up being the perfect choice for a formal wedding in Napa. It had the just the right amount of sparkle and the red color was so rich. The fit was very true to size. If you are larger chested or have a wider torso, then I would go up a size as your back-up. The length is an added benefit since it picks up in the front- I didn't have to worry about it being too short. I got so many compliments throughout the night. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Stylist Review!
No necklace needed with this dress! You are sure to turn some heads in this cherry red color and a gorgeous beaded neckline. The dress is high-low and tea length which makes this style very versatile. Dress it up for a formal affair or down for a daytime wedding. The fabric is thicker, so you can go braless or wear a strapless bra or nubra. The dress is fitted at the natural waist, so I would size up for your backup to ensure a comfortable fit in that area. Throw on some metallic, strappy heels and you are all set!

This amazing dress!
This dress was overnighted to me when my original pick hadn't worked out and I could not have been more happy. The dress is beautiful, elegant, young and comfortable, received compliments all night, it accommodated my 34DD bust perfectly and allowed for a strapless bra which means the world to a girl with a large bust, can't have too much support.

I used this as a replacement dress when my original order didn't fit but was so happy with the exchange. It was a beautiful dress that I would definitely recommend again.

I got stopped on the street and asked to do a twirl
This dress was so special and unlike anything I'd ever buy for myself. I loved how it was shorter in the front and floor length in the back, making it perfect for a black tie wedding. You only need super simple jewelry because of the beading on the illusion neckline. True to size. Got compliments all night!

Amazing dress
Loved the dress, but was extremely disappointed my dress was wrinkled. After picking it up from the DC store, I hung it up in my closet. When it was time to get ready, the lower half of the gown looked as it was never steamed. My only option was to try to iron the front, which did not really work because of the material was not made to be ironed. I had to leave the house wearing a designer dress with the entire bottom looking like a wrinkled t-shirt. Not sure if I will be returning here to rent again.

True to size. Was absolutely comfortable. Fabric was a bit thicker and needed to be steamed. Otherwise it was comfortable and glamorous. Got tons of compliments!

I LOVED this dress. The material is thicker than it looks in pictures, great for a fall wedding. It has pockets which is a huge plus. True to size. I was able to get away without wearing a bra. Got many compliments.

I got this as a backup dress when my order wasn't able to ship and was pleasantly surprised! I'm normally a 6L and the 4L fit perfectly. It was snug, but I feel like an extra fabric would've cheapened the look!

So dramatic!
Got this dress when the one I wanted wasn't available last minute - it was the perfect replacement for an awards ceremony I was attending. The fit was perfect and the length was OK - a little long in the back even with 4" heels as I'm only 5'3". Got compliments the entire night.

Everything went perfectly
I am 5'9", 150 lbs. the 8L fit perfectly with 3" heels. If I had been wearing flats, or low heels, it would be too long. The lace on top is a little itchy but not too bad. Otherwise very comfortable dress - especially useful pockets. Lots of complements. Perfect choice!

The dress fit perfect! The detail on the chest was beautiful and did not scratch or irritate my skin like most sequin does. The fabric was a little thicker but I liked that for fall since it was chilly outside.

LOVED this dress.
It came in super wrinkled but everything flattened out with a steamer in a few minutes. Snug fit, no room for give, was able to wear a strapless bra. This dress is of a thick, quality fabric.

Didn't LOVE this dress...
I found this dress to be a tad disappointing. The material is more matte canvas than glossy silk which I would have expected from a dress touting to be for formal occasions. The skirt needs more tulle or crinolin underneath to make it poofier- as it sort of sadly drapes down from the waistline. I love the concept (especially having pockets, which is such bonus for dresses!) and I usually looooove Marchesa dresses, but this one just wasn't my favourite. The detailing and beading found on the upper bodice is lovely and delicate but isn't enough to make a statement for me personally.

Unique design, great color, delicate embellishments at the top!
The 4 fit snug but could still easily move around in the dress, dance, sit, use the restroom! The skirt is big and fluffy and my 3.5inch heels were a tad too short for the back of the dress length. I'm tall at 5'9 with a longer torso but the waist line was a great fit. Also the dress fit well around my bust which is 34DD.

Dress fits true to size. Able to steam wrinkles out very easily. People stopped me to compliment the dress that weren't even at the party. Felt very comfortable. Top clasp kept coming undone, adored the dress! Pockets were a huge plus! Length was perfect with heels.

So many compliments!
I thought the fit was great - the fabric was heavier than I expected so definitely good for a black tie winter wedding. The arm holes were small so the netting annoyed me a bit, but nothing too terrible. It does wrinkle - I had to iron in between the ceremony and reception. However, so many compliments made it worth it. I could even wear it with flats!

Fit was a little small. The arm holes rub so going up a size is a must. I'm 5'10" and the Long size was perfect with medium heels.

I wore this for a semi formal holiday party.
This fit PERFECTLY. It's very flattering and gives the illusion of a strapless dress without having to be pulling it up all the time. The bodice had some boning so I was able to wear it without a bra. I'm 5'7 and with 2-3 inch heels the back just barely touched the ground with the regular, so don't go with the long if you're shorter, especially if you'll be wearing little or no heel!

Glamorous and sophisticated--LOVED IT.
I LOVED this dress. It was perfect for a red cross gala--just the right balance between sparkle and sophistication. I am 5'9" and wore the "long" version of this dress with flats. It was the perfect length for what I wanted, but definitely would have looked a bit silly with heels. The 4 was also a bit tight in the chest, but because of the thick material, I was able to go without bra and could still dance all night!

Gorgeous and makes a statement. Silhouette very flattering!
I wore this to my own rehearsal dinner and I couldn't have picked a better dress. the beading at the top is gorgeous and elegant. I also like that the legs get a little visibility which adds subtle dimension. I wore with black shoes but I think gold strappy shoes would love lovely as well!

Easy to wear, generally comfortable, eye catching
I wore this dress to a NYE bash on a family trip. It was a huge success, and a real stunner! I got compliments all night long, especially regarding the beading at the top, the fun pockets, and the color. I felt confident and beautiful. You will not be disappointed! Pros: fit true to size to a teeny bit big; very comfortable for a formal dress with fitted bodice; easy to eat and dance in. Also, as a shorter waisted person, this hit perfectly so it was flattering.Pockets! Cons: I wore a push up bra to add definition, which mostly worked. I felt there was still a little bit of a "squished down" look across the chest, which typically isn't an issue for me. Also, the beaded area at the top was a bit itchy and bothersome with the netting, but not enough to deter me, and I have very sensitive skin.

Great dress with a beautiful red color. Got compliments on it all night. The long length but shorter in the front makes it easier to dance and move around compared to a full length gown. Great dress for a fun evening.

When you love what you're wearing you feel great so that's how I felt wearing the dress - perfect
The zipper was tough so you need an extra hand. The dress material is thick and full of quality and the fit was exact so it looked taylor made. The gold mesh is delicate and stunning on the skin. The red is a brilliant red. You definitley stand out and are noticed wearing this dress. I felt like a princess!

Love the color!!
This dress was fun to wear! I was a little disappointed with the fabric because I was expecting something a little more satin like but it's made of a material like a table cloth which made it feel a little less formal. The details at the top are beautiful but some of the beads were loose or already missing, this wasn't noticeable to anyone but me! Once in the dress felt great and I loved wearing it. I wore it to a ball and it was perfect! Be careful on length, I wore 4 inch heels and the back still drug the ground. I noted it runs small because it was hard to zip over my rib cage and I have a pretty small upper torso!

Didn't require a bra. I wore 4" heels which were just tall enough for the back of the dress to sit a couple centimeters off the ground. I was comfortable the entire night and received so many compliments!

Fun!
I actually didn't end up wearing this dress as I rented two at the same time and went with the other dress. I really liked this dress, too, though! But ultimately I liked the cut better of the other dress for my body type. I LOVE the pockets (no need for a purse!) and the color is gorgeous. As a 6'0 girl though, I will say it wasn't as long as I thought--didn't hit the floor when I was barefoot.

This dress was awesome!
When selecting this dress, I had read that it can run small and was nervous about its fit. However, for my body type, the fit was perfect and the lace on top did not rub up against my skin at all. The fabric of the dress is a little thicker, which was perfect for a cool night. I received compliments on this dress all night long, and the pockets were a great addition!

I wore a size 2, and it fit perfectly. It came as expected. The material is thick, so it hides any imperfection! I got compliment all night long. This is my first time using RTR, and now I am totally hooked on it. This is a great website for finding party dresses without breaking the bank.

Lots of compliments!
I ordered this dress last minute and loved it! The pockets were perfect and the dress fit great! I wore it with 5 inch heels (not pictured) and the high low made it easy to walk while the back of the dress was the perfect distance from the ground. I do recommend wearing a bra but it might be seen from the back so make sure you watch for that.

The color was fabulous! Truly unique dress.
The top fits tight. Even though the fabric was thick, I wanted to wear a bra and had to size up to do that. The fabric needs a steaming so be sure you have time to steam day-of. I would never have picked this dress if not for the other reviews and also because I could rent it - not buy! It was a stunner and I highly recommend for a formal affair or formal wedding. If you are tall, make sure you get the long. I'm 5'10" and with 2.5-3" heels it was perfect length (I didn't want it touching the floor so yes, there is a bit of space but so worth it when walking or getting up out of a chair).
