I wore this to our reception, and it was perfect. Would definitely recommend.
This dress was beautiful! The fabric is a rich red, not a bright red. It was really hard for me to tell from the pictures, but it ended up being the perfect shade of dark warm red for Autumn. It fit really nicely although it was a little bit long for me. If I would have had on slightly higher heels, it would have been fine. I was wearing a very small heel. I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to make a statement, especially during fall.

Fantastic dress
I wish I could buy this dress! The color was fabulous and it looked great at my husband's military ball. The top was slightly too large but the waist for perfect. With a little body tape I was able to keep the ladies covered. My buddy is 40 C.

I wore this gown to a ball and it was just beautiful! I got so many compliments and it fit perfectly
The fit was perfect. I'm 5'4/5'5 and weigh around 120. I ordered the dress in a 2R and 4R, and the 2R fit fantastic. The cut had just the right amount of cleavage and wasn't too revealing. The dress also had 2 hidden pockets which were very convenient.

Red Dress PDX
I rented this dress for a red dress only party and looked one of a kind! It's super forgiving in the hips and accentuates the bust for sure. The pockets were handy as well. The bust is a little big so a sticky bra will definitely fit under there. Also, it irons well from the inside Out. Overall, a solid formal dress. Loved it!

The dress stood out and got lots of compliments!!!
While I'm usually a 0 or 2 regular, the only size available was a 2 petite, but it ended up working perfectly! The dress is so classy and elegant and it looked great on the red carpet.

I felt so pretty & the boldness of the color & style was a real eye catcher. I have never worn a dress I loved more! I go to this event every year, and it will be so hard to top this dress!

I had to order the petite size as that was all that was left in stock. I wore it with shorter heels and it was fine. It was little big on top so I had to tack it. Other than that it was gorgeous and it has pockets!

Stunner
This dress will make you feel like a princess. The color is a true pomegranate, and the dress's quality is almost divine. However, note that this dress is quite long and is meant for bustier women. But, with the help of dress tape, a sticky bra, and high heels, most of these problems can easily be solved. Overall, I loved this dress and it helped make my prom night unforgettable! The only "bad" memory I had with this dress was returning it.

I originally wanted to wear the size 6, but it wasn't available. I wore the size 8. The dress fit fine, but I would have preferred the 6. Overall, it was an amazing dress! I felt like a princess! I received so many compliments! I don't know how I'm going to top next year's prom!

I absolutely loved this dress. I wore it for my senior prom and I received so many compliments.
The fit was perfect, I usually just wear a 6 R but the 6 S worked great. Also, it has pockets, which was a major perk!

Dress for a queen
I adored this dress. It fit and felt like a dream. It really seem to work on all types. I'm a 34A and I wore it without a bra. You might want some magic tape. I left mine at home, so I just kept it in mind not to shimmy forward to much and was perfectly fine. The other thing is I'm 5'7.5" and I loved that I could wear the dress with fancy flats and my feet looked completely appropriate and semi hidden. I was able to dance and walk with just a slight fashionable drag. I wore it to a black tie optional affair. It may have a been a bit fancy for that though. People are so casual these days and lots of people went for fitted or short dresses... but no matter! I had fun in my magical dress.

Way too big
I got this dress and was prepared to love it, but I probably should have sized down 2 sizes! There was a ton of fabric and it was very large. I ended up wearing my back up. The quality of the dress was good and I was sad to not be able to wear it.

Perfect length and fit!
The length was perfect! I did not have to worry about stepping on the bottom or having to wear crazy heels. I could have worn flats, but wore a 2 inch heel and it looked great. The pockets were a huge plus and just added extra comfort to the dress.

Beautiful and very comfortable dress!!
I went wedding dress shopping a week prior to me ordering the dress so I had a professional semstress measure me and asked if she could right down my measurements for me. I measured perfectly to an 18 in this dress. But I should have ordered a whole dress smaller because I ended up having to pin it about an inch in shoulder an a bust are. And I have a very large chest!! So that was suprising to me because I usually have to go up a dress size because of my bust size! Overall a very beautiful dress! My occasion was an adult prom and received many complaints on it! It has a beautiful back on it and very good quality material. I was able to dance all night without feeling uncomfortable. I would definitely order this free again for another formal occasion but go down in dress size.

Pretty gown, weird sizing.
This dress is gorgeous, but the fit was all off. I just received it and could only rent the 8 because no other sizes were available for back up. The 8 was big from the shoulder and the straps were sliding off. But I couldn't zip it in the back. It's really really poofy, more than it appeared in other reviews' photos. And the waist sits very high up after which the huge poof starts. Not flattering on me at all but other people seemed to love it. Luckily RTR has great customer service, and will help me exchange it for something else.

It was a very pretty dress! The pocket made my life soooo much easier!
I needed a size 0Petite but they only had a 2R. It was big on me since I am pretty small! I wore really tall heels which hurt and pinned the back to fit my front. Other than that it was a really nice dress!

Absolutely adored this dress!! I felt like a princess the entire night
The dress I wore (8R) was the backup size for the 6R that I was planning on wearing but was returned late by the previous customer so I had to make do! The dress was a tad big up top and required me to use fabric tape to make sure the straps did not fall down. I think this wouldn't have happened if I had my intended size so no worrries! The dress fits like a glove and is absolutely breath taking. Every time I turned around someone was completmenting the gown. I can't imagine a better dress option to wear to a prom or formal event :)

one of my favorite dresses I have ever worn!!! Will definitely rent again! Wish I owned this dress.
I wore the 2L and it was snug around the waist but totally doable and comfortable. I'm 5'7'' and wore 4 1/2'' heels and the length was perfect! I didn't step on it (and neither did my date). The color is amazing, the picture doesn't do it justice. And it has pockets!!! The back straps are sheer and look so pretty. I wanted to rent this dress for a long time and finally did it and it is now my favorite of all time!!

HEAD TURNER!
This dress was better than expected and a back up after a professional stylist. The fit, weight of the fabric, and ability to wear a bra was great :) The color really popped in person. It was a tad long so I had to wear extra high heels, but you couldn't see them underneath anyway.

It's a gorgeous dress
This dress is true to size. I am a 10 waist and 12 top with d cups. I did use dress tap around the breast only because I am self conscience of them. It fit nicely. I would recommend it for any formal affair. I went to a valentines gala.

Felt so beautiful in this dress
Fit was perfect. The length was just right and was still long enough to cover my shoes but I could walk. The color was a beautiful red that shined so beautifully in the light. The pockets were perfect. The fit was just right and not too tight to where I couldn't breathe, but fit me just right. The back is beautiful. Wore this to a fundraiser gala and loved it !

This dress was stunning! I wore this gown to a Mardi Gras ball and I felt so confident in it. With each twirl on the dance floor I felt like I was in a movie. The dress was the perfect fit and everything about it was perfect. Simply a perfect dress for a perfect night!

Beautiful dress!
This was a great dress and I received a ton of compliments! I am 5'3 and RTR was out of the regular length, so I ordered a long. It was actually perfect on the length. The waist does hit high - I have big boobs and I didn't feel that it was incredibly flattering on my shape. I thought it made me look a little bigger, but it was so comfy and very forgiving. The neck is pretty low, but also conservative. The color is also more of a cranberry than a true red.

STUNNING DRESS
This is one of my favorite dresses I have ever worn. It's comfortable, flattering, the color is divine, and the pockets are awesome. I got so many compliments all throughout the night. The only issue was that it was a little long even when I wore 4-inch heels. Still, I would definitely rent again!

Unfortunately, the regular length of this dress was too long for me. The color was pretty, though!
I'm 5'2 and didn't order this dress in a petite length. There is no way I could have worn it, even with the highest heels I could find! The color was pretty but I didn't love the dress on me. I think that the bodice of the dress might flatter someone with a longer torso than myself. The one that I received had a stain on it as well, which was too bad. I ended up going with my alternate dress.

Wonderful dress. I'd rent it again. It came wrinkled.
I'm 5'11" and this dress was the perfect length. It's full of color and the shape is beautiful. The bust was a bit more exposing than I expected, but that was fine.

Christmas stunner!
This is simply stunning. The color is exquisite, such a beautiful red. You turn heads with this gown! I wore it for a Christmas gala affair--I am 5'9" without heels and long-waisted. It definitely hit me above my natural waist, then the dress poofs out from that. It can make you look heavier if this happens, and it did me to a degree. The dress was worth it though! Get a tall size if dresses with defined waists tend to be too sit high on you and not at your natural waist so you have trouble wearing them, as I do--if it sat lower, the fit would have been magnificent. I think this is beautiful on all figures. It is not stretchy--this is constructed to fit exactly. The back has sheer panels on it, so I went bra-less (I'm petite on top, so it wasn't a problem). A regular or strapless bra would not have worked. The zipper was hard to get up, I needed assistance. But I was thrilled to wear it! Also--pockets!

Incredible dress worn to my cousin's holiday military ball - appropriate and so stunning!!
I was initially worried about the fit, as I originally thought 6R would be the perfect fit, but only 8R and 4R were available at the time I ordered. Then, a few days before the event, I received an email that the 8R was no longer available due to damage by the previous renter (RTR had AMAZING customer service though - they allowed me to choose another dress up to 2X the rental value and they shipped it within 24 hours, in addition to the 4R size of this dress)! Luckily, the 4R size of this dress fit perfectly!! I am 5'5" and I wore 4.25" shoes, and the R length was absolutely perfect. The dress just floated on the dance floor and I spent the entire night dancing (I would say to be careful during the electric slide, haha - you may want to lift the skirt to make sure you don't trip). And the pockets were PERFECT - they fit my huge iPhone 6 with an OtterBox, and I loved being able to bring my phone to the dance floor. I am about 150 lbs., but I am very pear-shaped, so the thin top half and full/flowy skirt was perfect for my body shape. However, the top and waist of the dress have very little give, so I would definitely recommend ordering the size that would best fit your top half. With the mesh back, I just ended up wearing a nude bra, and I didn't find any problems with that because you could hardly tell. My only (very minimal!) complaint was that the fullness of the skirt made it a little difficult to maneuver sitting down and standing up at the dinner table, and because I was attending a military ball, there were a lot of moments when I had to stand/sit quickly, which made maneuvering the dress a little annoying. But overall, I received so many compliments and I felt so beautiful both at the dinner and the dancing, and I will DEFINITELY be ordering this dress again for events in the future!

Belle of the ball
I got sooooo many compliments wearing this dress. Wore it to a NYE black tie event. I'm 5'6" and wore 3 inch heels and the dress just skimmed the ground. I way about 143 and have an athletic build with a small bust and bigger thighs and butt which this dress hides. WARNING about shipping. I was set to get my dress a day before my event and checked the tracking on my shipment to only find that me dress wasn't coming until 3 days AFTER my event was supposed to take place. That is 4 days past when it was supposed to be delivered. RTR claimed that FedEx delayed my package but they also didn't ship it until the day before it was supposed to arrive and shipped it standard delivery. I was SHOCKED considering I'd only have the dress in my possession for 3 days and literally the point of this company is to get me a outfit for a specific event. You'd think they'd have the shipping part down! So I bought a whole new outfit and asked to cancel my shipment and refund me. By chance I looked at the tracking the following day and Fedex had miraculously got it to my town! I spent my afternoon calling and calling to confirm they wouldn't actually cancel my order (hmmm guess they don't do that well either) and it FINALLY arrived by 4 pm the day of my event. Good thing it fit!!

Game of Thrones party.
I wasn't able to wear this dress because it was so large on me. I ordered based on my measurements and just couldn't make it work. I had about 4 extra inches in the bodice area and the skirt was 3" off the ground when I was barefoot. That being said, it was obviously very well made, and the fabric and color were stunning.
