Replacement dress...not bad, but didn't wear.
This dress was send to me as a replacement dress for the Elizabeth and James Giulia dress (total opposite, right?). Anyways, there is absolutely no way I would wear the dress to my event because it isn't my style. With that being said, I decided to try it on....it fits pretty true to size. I flip between a size 4/6 and the 4 fit nicely. It also covers any armpit fat you might have (if that's an issue). The dress is very thick but not heavy-I did not have a bra on in this pic and there is definitely some room if you have a larger chest (it will hold you in place). Overall it's pretty, just not my style.

I felt like a princess!
This dress is a showstopper. Don't plan on wearing it unless you want to stand out in a sea of black, normal dresses. I got compliments all night long. I'm 5'9 and wore the 10L. I maybe could've worn the 8L but I'm 3 months post partum and my chest is large from breastfeeding. I didn't need to wear Spanx because of the way the dress fits high/natural waist and then flairs. I wore flats but I could've worn a small heel if I wanted to. I would absolutely recommend this dress. Note: you will need to wear cups as a bra or a backless, strapless bra. It is sheer and open in the back.

Were you wearing heels with this dress? I'm 6'0" tall, and trying to find out if it will be long enough.

Get this dress if you want to get compliments all night!
I loved everything about this dress! I am 34 DDD so I had to wear a bra and it showed with the mesh back. But I had a red lace bra so it didn't matter too much. And for once there was room in the bust area and I love having pockets! I received so many compliments and the color is out of this world! I'm not a ball gown person (I usually go for fitted dresses) but I couldn't pass this dress up!

My Cinderella moment
Everything about this dress is fabulous. It made me feel like a modern day Cinderella. It's comfortable, beautiful, and the perfect color to add a bit of flare to a formal event. The pockets made keeping my phone nearby easy yet unnoticeable. I would recommend having someone around to help zipper as it is difficult around the waist where the "belt" is. It's great for dancing too since it has the full skirt. Overall I absolutely recommend this dress.

I hope you don't mind, but what is your weight? I always get so nervous ordering from here because I'm terrified that the dress wont fit. You are 5'6, and I am too, so I'm hoping we are similar weights because you look fantastic in it!

Dress was a hit, so many compliments!
I wore this dress to my sorority's formal and it was perfect! I got compliments on it all night. The back is sheer so you'll have to get a backless bra or go without- I went without and was fine. It's more red than is shown in the picture RTR provided, but I still liked it. Wonderful dress!!

A stunner - rent if you want to stand out!
Rented this for a black tie wedding in December with a holiday slant. The red is a deep ruby, darker and less pink than the RTR photo. Fit almost perfectly. I am 5'4" and wore 2.75" heels and the length was perfect. If you are taller than me and want to wear taller heels, get the long because the length was spot on for me. The top was a thicker material and was comfortable rather than tightly fitted. The waist and low back was perfect for me and since I have wide hips, the full skirt let me order the right size for my smaller top. In a more fitted dress, I would have had to rent a size 6. Also I'm a 32D and there was room to spare. Got tons of compliments and the dress stood out in a sea of darker and more fitted dresses. Very happy I rented.

People called me Cinderella!
Wore this to a holiday party - the red is perfect for Christmas. I was worried about not being able to wear a bra (you can't) but it worked fine, which never happens for me. I chose this dress because I had my appendix out the week before and needed something that would not be tight on my stomach. It was tight under the bust but loose and comfortable down below. Seems to run a bit large as the last few dresses I've rented I've worn a larger size. Loved this dress and got so many compliments - even from people I didn't know. I put everything in the pockets and didn't have to carry a purse.

Felt like a princess! Stunning gown!
Fabulous dress, compliments all night long. Wore to a holiday ball and no one had anything like this. I'm 5'4" so taller heels was a must. Loved the pockets. Didn't need to wear a bra but a nubra would've been good to have. Didn't need any jewelry except earrings. Zipper stuck a little bit taking on and off but I got through it. A true ball gown! Rent this dress!!

The process was so easy. I was surprised at how uncomplicated the ordering, delivery and return was.
Gorgeous dress. I ended up wearing the smaller of the two sizes (0). I got so many compliments on the night and even later when people saw pictures. It was comfortable but definitely not easy to dance in. I was sad to send it back!

I ordered the 8L because I wanted it to be extra long and dramatic, Mission accomplished! The dress is going to make everyone ohh and ahh, and you're going to feel like a queen in it. I added the belt I wore for my wedding to give it some extra sparkle, and a dramatic necklace. You will not regret this one ladies, enjoy her like I did!!

I felt like a princess!
I ordered the 8 petite and the 10 regular, since they didn't have a 10 p available. :( I usually wear an 8, but I sometimes size up due to my bust size (32H). The 8 was the perfect length, but a little too tight in the bust, which made the silhouette less flattering. I wore the 10, which was a little long, but it worked well anyway. :) I also pinned some black lace to the neckline, because if you have big boobs, it is verryyy cleavagey. It was absolutely stunning, and the amount of compliments was off the charts.

Truly well depicted by the reviews, I loved this dress!!
I read all the reviews that the mesh back didn't allow for a bra and I was nervous because I really need the support but the dress fit wonderfully and no bra was required. Also framed my back well and accentuated my figure perfectly. I got lots of compliments at the event and on social media afterward. The one thing I was surprised about is that everyone said it was on the shorter side and I didn't find that to be the case for me. I got a 10L and a 12R (wore a 12 as a bridesmaid at a friend's wedding two months before). The 10 fit great but was actually a little too long with the flats I wore. The 12 would have been too big. A 10R probably would have been better and I'm about 5'8".

Tons of Compliments
I wore this dress to a black tie wedding. The fit was true to size. I wear a 4 normally and it fit perfectly! All night I got compliments. All the color is a rich holiday red not the color they show in the picture. I love the actual color. I wish it came in petite, I am 5 foot I wore 6inch platform heel and the dress still needed to be picked up when walking. It does have pockets I love that feature. The dress is perfect I have it only 4 stars because I had to steam the dress before the event, it was delivered extremely wrinkled.

Beautiful Dress, Great Quality
unfortunately for me when I got the dress we couldn't zip it up even on the hanger, we eventually zipped it and I slid it over my head to get it on. lots of compliments but a struggle because of the zipper. I breastfed easily in this dress though which made it worth it!

Twirled all night in this beautiful dress
This dress was wonderful. The sheer on the back was subtle and everyone loved it. I got compliments all night and my date couldn't stop telling me how much he loved it. The waist is very flattering and you'll never have to worry about sucking in. Also it's a great dress for girls with bigger breasts. I didn't need a bra or tape.

Beautiful gown! Many compliments.
Did have to get it pressed once received. Top was much bigger than I thought (I wear a 30F and was expecting it to be tight from other reviews) or maybe it was stretched out... or just not cut was perfectly as I hoped for a petite hourglass figure. Pictures all looked frumpy but many many compliments from those around me.

A very classic statement ball gown
I ended up not wearing this dress since I had rented two options for my event, but I'm hoping to have an occasion to rent it again! It feels very formal, like classic old Hollywood ball gown. I usually wear between a 4 and a 6 and the 4 fit me perfectly. Got the long size since I'm taller and that was definitely the right call once I added heels. A little large in the bust, so if I had worn it I would have needed a little help filling out my "B" cups ;)

This dress was gorgeous. I rented it for my girlfriend who has a larger rib cage. If you have an apple shape - I would rent 2 sizes up from your normal dress size.

Gorgeous Gown with an Incredible Color
Gown ran slightly large as I am usually solidly a size 6 but ended up wearing the 4 (my backup). Regular length was nearly perfect in almost flats. Everyone was commenting on this dress all night long. And the color looks amazing in photographs. Rent this! You will not be disappointed.

So many compliments! The perfect choice.
5 stars all around!! I'm 5'3 and it was a little long, so I wore extremely high heels. But everything else was perfection. I was so happy with this dress. I'm a 32 C, so I struggle to find dresses that flatter and I'm confident in- this was perfect. Just enough cleavage, but I wasn't self-conscious or worried I would have a, ahem, wardrobe malfunction.

Classically beautiful
I loved this dress. I got compliments all night. The color is fantastic and the pockets are great! I'm 5'1 and could manage the length OK with a 3.5 inch heel but it was still a tad long. I had to pick it up a bit to move through crowded areas of the ballroom. I wore a backless "sticky sided" bra, and that worked well. One note on the size- I waited to long to write my review and honestly can't remember now if I ended up wearing the 4 or 6 (so take that into account if you have similar measurements) but my recollection is that it was true to size if not a tad on the larger size.

Beautiful senior prom dress!!
I usually wear a size 14, so glad I trusted my instincts to order a back up size! Sadly, the 14 did not fit properly, and the 16 was a bit too big. Wearing a bra helped make the bust area even out, but even then it was too long and too big. However, I received so many compliments and no one else seemed to notice the size difference. Overall, I am glad I rented this dress for my senior prom! Everyone was so envious, and said I looked like a queen. I would recommend this dress, but just make sure to measure yourself and size correctly.

Received lots of compliments and the color was amazing. Felt like a princess.
The fit was very good and the fullness was not hard to handle. The zipper was difficult to maneuver at the waistline. The top straps was a little loose and fabric tape would have been helpful. Maybe removing the shoulder hanger strap since it would show.

Tight and high waist, perfect length for average height women who don't want to wear sky high heels, bust was loose- perfect for larger chests. Pockets hold a iPhone 6s! Lots of room!

The color, cut, shape, and overall glamour of this dress is indescribable!
The moment I pulled it out of the package I knew I had made the right decision. This dress, while a little more Dorothy's-red-slippers than ruby, is by far my favorite dress I have ever worn. The fabric was thick enough to nix the bra while being airy and light enough to wear outdoors in Alabama for a long period of time. My only complaint is that the dress was a little larger than I had intended (which really only matters up top since that is the only place it is fitted), so I would definitely size down for your second option. Otherwise I can only rave over this dress!

This gown is a stunning color and cut! I received many compliments on it and felt great wearing it!
The top was a bit large for me, but it worked fine for the event. I am 5'5" and ordered the "long" because I wanted to wear very high heels with it, but the skirt was barely long enough for 3" heels. Other than that, it was absolutely perfect!

Amazing dress I never wanted to give back!
I wore this dress to my junior prom and I've never received so many compliments in one night! The skirt was full and the color was so so nice. The sheer back wasn't a problem at all because no bra was needed. I'm around 5'7 and the 6R skirt just barely touched the floor in my flats! The top did seem a little big but I do have a shorter torso. Overall a great dress!

Unforgettable Lady in Red Dress
This dress is perfect for a military ball. It fits true to size. I will say that there is NO give in the waist. Perfect for woman with large breasts. I did not notice that the back is mesh so you can't wear a bra. So if you have large breasts, tape your breasts together or wear a nubra bra. I am 5'3, wore 4 inch heels and the dress barely skimmed the floor. I would absolutely recommend this dress! It's a showstopper!
