Such a great shade, made a statement in a room full of neutrals!
the inner shell is snug, I am glad I ordered a size up than normal because I needed it!

Wore this for a Christmas party.
I have larger hips, so the dress was tight in that area, but everywhere else it fit great!

Rich, but not Skinny
Loved the color. Fabric is nice as well. The inside layer of the dress is somewhat fitted, but the overall look is very... well, not fitted :) That's a no-brainer I guess, I should have known. But I kinda wish it was a little more flattering. I tried putting on a gold belt over it, and just didn't look good, so wore it without a belt. It's a nice dress, but not sexy.

Turned heads on Vegas' Strip
I wore this dress to a nice dinner with my boyfriend's parents while we were in Vegas. Not only was I stopped twice during dinner to ask where I got my dress, but people were stopping me while walking through Las Vegas hotels and even on the Strip! This dress is incredibly flattering and definitely a show stopper. Would definitely recommend! The fit was true to size and the under part of the dress fits snug to the body, which is visible on the left side. Overall I was extremely pleased with this dress.

Meh...
This was a back up dress. The medium did not fit around my 38.5" hips. Pear shapes beware. The color was pretty, but it's not a statement dress. It's a safe dress if you're wanting to show a little leg, but hide your mid-section.

Chic sexy elegance!
I rented this dress and had it sent to the city where the event was being held, there was some issues with shipping through an error by UPS but RTR was AMAZING and sorting everything out to get the dress there...RTR will take care of you! BUT long story short...the bride-to-be wore the dress (instead of me) for her cocktail engagement party. The XS fit perfect and the material was very nice, the way it draped was elegant but it is fitted under the main draping if that makes sense, you can kind of tell in the picture. Perfect dress for the cocktail party, I will rent it for myself next time!

Beautiful color and great fit!
I wore this to a holiday party and received compliments all night. It is a deeper red color than it appears online. The dress hangs nicely and is very comfortable to wear. I paired it with the Dannijo necklace and it looked great!

Dress was a beautiful color and very flattering silhouette.
Rented medium and small, small was perfect on the top and medium was perfect on the bottom but ultimately went with the small.

RED ALERT!
I wore this to the formal night at my wine club. It was my back up dress for another event for the same weekend so I made use of both dresses! I looked great and got lots of compliments. I wore the medium because the bottom was very fitted, although it looks like a loose drape in the front. I loved it so much I wanted to purchase it!

Great fitting dress
Really cute dress. Looks better on than in the picture (both in the RTR photo and my blurry shot). The 0 fit nicely. I pinned the front drape back a bit, that was a personal style preference. Great looking dress that has the right amount of classic and sexy.

RTR has a customer for life, I felt beautiful. The dress is bump friendly, sexy and classy.
It fit like a dream, runs true to size, it covered my problem areas and showed just enough skin to still be sexy in a classy way.

Absolutely loved the dress!
I never wear red, but this color is a much darker shade that went well with my fair complexion. I wore it for Christmas Eve dinner at a steakhouse.The dress is very elegant and I would definitely rent it again. I felt the reviews are very accurate describing the fit. If you have larger hips/bottom you will need to go up in size. The medium was very tight in the bottom, but the large fit perfectly there. Unfortunately, the top part ran large and doubled sided fashion tape was a necessity. I was worried that it would not be flattering because it appears to be shapeless. However, the dress is fitted on one side and drapes nicely on the other. High heels and minimal jewelry completed the look.

Very comfortable, but super classy. Color is so rich!
Wore this dress to my sister's wedding. I absolutely loved it! It runs true to size; I expected to wear a medium and I did. I wore it with a skinny black belt because the dress can be a little too drapey, and I wanted to give myself a waist. I also rented the Lee Angel Silver Etienne Necklace to wear with it; looked great!

Who doesn't love a red dress?!
I loved this dress. It was just what I expected it to be like, and even though it was my backup dress, I ended up wearing it and loving it. More maroon-ish than red, and the bottom of the dress was a bit tighter than the rest, but other than that, just wanted I thought it would be. I wore Spanx just to be safe, and a strapless bra. I wore it to a wedding where I didn't know a soul, and was even asked to be some guys "date" in photos...seriously? But again, who doesn't love a red dress?!

Fun and comfortable!
Super comfortable and easy style to wear without having to suck it all in. Great length- didn't have to worry about pulling it down or around to adjust. The bottom is a little tight around lower tummy and hips but the sheath covers area so even if it is a little snug it won't show.

Comfortable and sexy
This dress ran rather large on me. Normally a 6/M but wore the S and was still comfortable. This was a very sexy dress while still being appropriate for a family wedding. So many compliments and so much fun to wear. Easy to move for dancing :)

Not for me
The dress was beautiful. The under layer is quite tight and I don't have big curves. The xs was a little too tight however the draping does hide it well. For me with a small chest, it gave me NO shape. I tried it with a belt which helped a lot but wasn't the look I was going for. I ended up not wearing it because it just didn't flatter me.

Extremely small.
I tried on this dress and the M was WAY too small. The L didn't fit very well either, the sheath under the front flap was very, very small. AND it had a stain on it. My only bad RTR experience but they overnighted another dress for me to wear and it worked perfectly.

Loved this dress - even though it was my backup
The draped look over the snug fitted layer is flattering, it hugs in certain spots, hangs loose in others - which is good for anyone with a fluctuating body type like mine.

flattering+comfortable = so many compliments!
I wore this dress to a wedding and it did well in so many scenarios- tasteful for inside the church without being boring, fabric is heavy enough that i wasn't cold during the outdoor cocktail hour, and it was super comfortable to dance in. Both the small and medium could have worked, but I went with medium to get more of the draped look the dress is designed to have. The skirt definitely hugs the hips so size up for the back up if you aren't narrow in that area. I wore the dress with the accessories shown on the model and loved those too. The ganesha bangle in particular was so unique and has a nice weight to it so it can easily be worn on its own.

Bump-friendly and elegant!
I rented this dress for a black-tie event. I received tons of compliments, was comfortable and the shape/cut of the dress was very flattering...even at 26 weeks pregnant. I wore nude heels, a gold wrap and a rented gold/clear bib necklace (also from RTR) and it was perfect. Modern and classy.

Classy and beautiful dress! Color was amazing!
I got both the small and the medium and the small fit great on the top but the inner shell was just a bit snug around my hips and legs. The medium was comfortable all around and fit great. The top was just a little big but it was nothing double sided tape couldn't fix. I put a black skinny belt around the dress to show off my figure. I absolutely loved this dress!!

It was a fabulous dress at an amazing price and the color is so rich and classy!
This was a great dress and I got a ton of compliments on it but it runs very SMALL! The inside skirt does not have any give at all so thank god I got both sizes or I would not have been able to wear it. It is a fabulous dress but just know that you need to order 1-2 sizes up.I am a medium in most everything including juniors and I had to wear the large.

It is made for someone without curves. I wear a large and couldn't get it over my hips. I was very glad I had an alternative. The dress is a pretty color and I'm sure stunning on the right person.

This dress was awesome. I normally wear a medium, rented a medium and back-up large. On someone without hips it's probably true-to-size, but if you have curves, I'd size up. The large fit perfectly and got a ton of compliments. Gorgeous dress, amazing color.

I thought this dress ran true to size. I am usually a medium but I went with the small so that the dress would fit a little tighter underneath. I agree that it was a little tight around the hip area - but I liked that it showed off my curves on the side. I received a ton of compliments with this dress on. I would definitely rent it again.

Fit was awkward
I rented a M and a L in this dress... this was recommended in the bump friendly section as I am about 4 months pregnant and the M was very tight in the under section of the dress, meaning my only option was the Large, which was too big in the bust area. It was pretty but I did not end up wearing it. I would size up on this one if you are have hips but beware of the chest.

Too small in the hips
I'm 4 months pregnant and have a small bump. This dress would be adorable on someone with a larger bump, but on me it just wasn't flattering. I typically wear a size 4-6 in dresses, but the small was a bit too snug in the hips. The medium wasn't available, but I'm sure it would have worked just fine. Had to return this one, unfortunately.

Beautiful dress - strange fit
I rented this dress because it was listed as bump friendly (am currently 5 months pregnant). Pre-pregnancy I was a size 0. The small fit perfectly well in the chest but was very tight around my stomach. The medium was a better fit around my stomach but was HUGE in the chest. I think this dress is made for a bustier person. I am guessing if I wasn't pregnant, the xs would have fit me just fine. It is a beautiful color, fabric and look!

Simple, yet elegant
I chose this dress for a garden wedding and it was completely PERFECT. This fit of the dress, not the draping, was a little snug so I would say that this dress runs small to true to size. It is very easy to wear and with simple accessories and heels it was a HIT!

Hips and thighs?
The dress was beautiful however I wasn't able to wear it because it runs VERY tight through the hips and thighs. The fabric has minimal stretch and isn't very forgiving for my slightly curvy figure. I'm a size 4 in wedding gowns and other formal dresses, but the small didn't fit me because the dress is cut very straight from the hips down. Unless you have a boyish / model's figure, you should order at least one size up.

Beautiful and flattering dress
I rented this dress for my Christmas Party... and even though I couldn't attend last minute, my boyfriend took me out to dinner so I could have the opportunity to wear it. I got compliments from people all night long! It was absolutely stunning!!! I hope to rent it next year. I am 5'10, 135lbs with a 32DD and size 2-4 pants and I ordered a small. It fit like a glove, literally. The picture makes it look loose, but it's not. The dress is basically two layers, a tight dress with a looser fabric draped over the top like a toga, for lack of a better description. When you stand facing front, it looks as pictured. But when you turn to the side, it revels the separation in the fabric and the tight dress underneath. It's very hot! It's also a bit shorter than described. It came a little higher than mid-thigh. Because I am so skinny I avoid flowy dresses because I look like I am wearing a tent... this dress, with it's two layers, was perfect!

Great dress!
Got dress for a NYE party and received so many compliments that night! Only thing is that dress was a little large at shoulder and chest. Usually I wear 0-2 or xs-s. Other than that it was fabulous!
