I really liked this dress. Great vibrant color. Fits like a glove!

This dress was a last minute dress. The original dress that I ordered was not returned in time from the previous renter. So I had to choose whatever else that was available. From my computer, it does not look red but rather a blood orange. The dress fit very well. Super snug and enhanced all the right places (bust, stomach). I was able to pull it off during a mid-day winery/birthday outing and did not feel overdressed. I'd recommend this dress on fit itself!

Beautiful Dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was gorgeous, and I received a ton of compliments. The only problem with the dress was the lining would occasionally pop out, so I would have to continuously keep fixing the dress. Also the dress is extremely tight, so I would recommend getting two sizes in the dress.

Bright and Fun!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The stylist ordered me a 12 even though I said I was a 4-6 with a small ribcage. The 12 only worked because I had some fashion tape to hold it up, otherwise the nude silk lining kept rolling up up top & the bustier sags. The color is great, but the dress has some spots on it on the bodice, a snag at the front of the skirt, and is missing a small amount (any passerby would never notice) beading along the pocket edges. Overall I loved this dress - but I wish it had fit correctly and that the stylist had listened a little better/we had better communication. I had compliments ALL night long and I did feel VERY special and despite how bit it was, it was still so flattering.

Love the dress, minor problems.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small

I wore this dress for prom last year. I had to pull out the stays (plastic) that was shaping the bust because they were poking through and cutting into my skin. The dress was just so tiny, i also have a tiny bust and it still didnt really fit. my mom had to zip me up and during dinner i couldnt sit down or hunch my back while eating. also the inside lining kept popping through at the top, sort of a beige color, looked weird in pictures( you can tell in the second pic) i had to temporarily hem the dress because on my small 5 foot frame it was incredibly long. i would recommend for medium to tall girls that are stick skinny. but overall great dress and received lots of compliments! the pockets were also super convenient! P.S.- the sizing is clearly on a different scale, a 6 is more like a 00 or 0

It's cool to wear the same dress as your sister on NYE - right?!

Size worn: 10

Smokin hot and not for those who are shy of being super booby! This dress will create an hourglass figure for you even if you're far from it. Given that the top is very much like a corset - this dress is definitely looks over comfort as the top is tight. I would recommend for making a statement but not eating a big Italian meal.

Thsi dress is stunning and of high quality but it runs a little big. Also, the boning pinched my skin a little so I'd make sure the boning has been fixed before renting.

This dress made me feel like a rock star!

Loved this dress! I rented it for my 30th birthday and it was gorgeous. The fit was small, but luckily I had two sizes, and wore the larger one. The only complaint is that the nude lining showed a bit, but other than that I was incredibly pleased. I received compliments all night and am so happy that I chose this dress!

This is how I rang in the New Year 2012! While most girls wear sparkles all over on New Year's Eve, I stood out with this color, which is a such a unique shade of orangey-red. And the embellished pockets gave me just enough sparkle to stand out among all the people who were ringing in the New Year. My dress stood out so much that girls were coming up to me in the bathroom asking me "Where did you get your dress? I love it!" And I obviously sold them on RTR.

Like most Matthew Williamson dresses this ran a little small, but luckily I knew that and rounded up ... definitely ROUND UP in sizing, and also even in your back-up size. Especially since this dress has padded in the breast/bodice already there is no need for a bra and you probably couldn't wear one anyway. The slight padded cups and the sweetheart neckline makes for a very subtle yet feminine corset look. This dress has been on the site for awhile but is completely timeless and rents often for a reason! However, some of the wire and boning is starting to poke thru the fabric, so beware when wearing. Even though I had to round up a whole dress size, maybe could have even worn a size larger, the cut and the fit was so perfect and flattering, especially for a curvy girl, that I found it made me look even smaller than my true size!

The color is much "redder" than it appeared on my computer screen. I loved the internal bustier bodice. Brilliant!

It's a really pretty dress. The detail is beautiful, fun and the color is perfect. Alas, this sizing is WAY OFF. Start by ordering two sizes up from your normal size.

loved the color and detail on this dress. It runs very small and has no stretch or give. order 2 sizes up! the cut is best for small-chested, small-hipped women.

I love love the details on the pocket of this dress, the shape, and the color. It fit very well-> it was a tiny bit small on me at the waist which made it a bit unpleasant to be able to eat too much at the wedding, but I still loved every minute of it.

Very beautiful dress! The beaded details are great and feel very glamorous. Got lots of compliments!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
It ran small and the corset in the dress was scratchy, which made it a bit uncomfortable. It's also a very heavy dress. However, it looks beautiful. The color is very vibrant, the pockets are a nice touch, and the details are really pretty. I got a lot of compliments wearing it! Just keep in mind that if you are going to be wearing the dress for an extended period of time, it won't be the most comfortable.

The material on the dress looked very worn, little balls attached to it. Some of the jewels too were missing. The length hit me perfectly though! I am 5' 3" and the dress came to my mid thigh.

Perfect for a cocktail party

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Wore this dress to a wedding requesting cocktail attire. The style, vibrant color, and intricate beading detail was beautiful -- I received numerous compliments and definitely stood out amongst the crowd. This dress is best for women with a small bust - the built-in bra is more like a built-in corset, so it is very tight throughout the chest and mid-section. Overall I would rent this dress again but renters beware - it runs small - I usually wear a 2 but had to go up a size in order to zip up the dress all the way.

I ordered this dress without reading the measurements and reviews, so the sizes that ended up being delivered were way too small (I guess it might have been a 6 and 8.) However, the dress was BEAUTIFUL (though a bit heavy from all the beading) and I might try ordering it again for a future event. I normally wear anywhere between a 2 and a 6, depending on the store (so average 4) and if I were to order again, I'd probably order a size 10. I was able to get the 8 zipped up but I was seriously busting out of it. I can't tell you how disappointed I was to have this dress in front of me and not be able to wear it, its that pretty.

Runs very small! Especially if you have a broad torso order a couple of sizes up!
