An Unforgettable Red Dress

I rented for a black tie wedding and absolutely loved this dress! It fits true to size and the cut of the cleavage wasn't too revealing for my D cup either. I got a lot of compliments, would rent again in a heartbeat!

Ah-mah-zing

Dress was beautiful and got so many compliments. You need a bust to fill it out, otherwise the top will gap. Straps are super sturdy and for the most pet will keep you in place all nice. Lace is heavy and super forgiving and lays beautifully. All in all take a risk and rent this dress!

Beautiful

This dress really is lovely in person. I chose not to wear it in the end because it was a little tight, if there was a size 14 I would have ordered that. Very curve hugging and a nice back.

I felt sexy and classy in this dress.

I got so many compliments. No picture really does the dress justice. It fit perfectly and has an old Hollywood feel with a little something extra. It was true to size and accentuates bust.

Amazing dress!

I love this dress. It fit well and was very flattering. The only thing is that it is thickly lined so it was not ideal for the island wedding I attended.

Great dress. Elegant sexy

I thought the torso fits perfect which means it probably runs like a petite size on the top. Padded bra is great!

Standout dress.

Classy and sexy. Great fit throughout. Definitely wouldn't recommend for ladies with a larger bust. The color is beautiful.

The dress that will turn heads as you walk by.

I'm petite and curvy all at the same time. Luckily a size 10 didn't look too big on my small frame but covered my boobs for the most part. If you have the confidence and love yourself more than anyone else's opinion, then rock this dress like there is no tomorrow! This dress will attract all the single groomsmen and catching the bouquet won't be necessary. I would recommend this dress to anyone who wants to look sexy and classy all at the same time.

Showstopper!

This dress is hands down beautiful. I rented the 2 and 4 and went with the latter, which fit like a glove. The bodice is form fitting, but the bottom doesn't hug your legs. I liked this because it made walking up stairs and dancing so easy. I'm a 34D, but the top was not too revealing. Like others have said, the red is darker in person, yet still beautiful. I got compliments the whole night and on my pictures the following day. If you've ever wanted to wear a knock out red dress, this is it!!

Athlete goes fashionista

The dress was stunning! It fir really great on my athletic body type. No need for a bra, but anything smaller than a full B may need some filler. I was able to make it work bc I have big shoulders which helped keep my boobs in place. Very large boobs will likely not be flattering. Great for curvy women. I'm 5'8 and it his me perfectly just below the knee. Not stretchy by easy enough to dance in. The dress was a big hit and will absolutely rent again. The material is thick so I would not suggest it for any place super hot or tropical.

Great costumer service and Amazing dress selection to choose from

This dress runs true to size I got it for my sister she is 5'4" 145 and the size 4 fit her well. Only problem she had to use silicon to stuff the front so that her bobs won't show when she bend over. Over all she loved the dress and it's a great fit ! This fabric has no stretch and I would only recommend for small boobs and small frame

Elegant and sexy all at the same time!

Overall this dress was very formfitting. I normally can't fit my bottom half into a size 4, but this dress had a nice amount of give. Size down if you are more pear shaped. The cup structure was great because I didn't feel like I was filing out the dress on top but if I stood up straight it looked perfect.

This dress made me feel so confident!

This dress was amazing! I wore it to a black tie wedding that was all inside and it was perfect. If the wedding was outside the fabric would have been too hot. This dress is feminine and fabulous! It hugs your curves in all the right places and gives you a 'va va voom' look to remember! Rent it!

Great dress but big in the chest.

I rented this for a gala. It was gorgeous on, however on my petite frame the chest was way too big. I ended up pinning the straps back but it didn't help quite enough. If I were a couple inches taller this wouldn't have been an issue. Short girls beware.

Amazing lace and color

Dress was amazing! However I wouldn't recommend it if you have a larger chest like myself. I wore the 10 which was too tight on my chest but loose on my stomach. Got so many compliments and felt great the entire night.

Pretty dress

Very pretty color and style. Fit true to size and fit all the right curves. I received a lot of compliments. I didn't give it 5 stars because the top was alittle low and had strange padding built in - wish the straps were adjustable.

Showstopper

Wore this beautiful dress to a wedding and received compliments all night! Flattering length, thick material which feels expensive and beautiful strappy back. The only downside was that my chest did not fill the top completely. I am a B cup and felt I could have used more support - I had friends on the lookout for a wardrobe malfunction! Luckily everything stayed in place.

Absolutely Stunning

This dress fit like a glove - an amazing glove (not the kind you can't wait to take off). I received multiple compliments and felt like a star. I normally wear a size 6, but recently lost a few pounds and was nervous on what size to get as my back up (especially since I'm more pear shaped and everything is always tight through my hips). All the reviews said to go up, so I did. I ended up wearing the 6 and it was perfect! I didn't want to take the dress off at the end of the night and I was really sad when I had to return it. I would rent this dress again in a heart beat!

Loose around bust

The dress is beautiful and the back looks amazing! But the bust was loose. I'm a 32B and I got a size 0. The dress was perfect everywhere except for the bust. The material is quite thick and heavy, so it was a bit weird. Ended up not wearing it. It would have been perfect for a holiday party though!

I felt stunning!

Love this dress. The fit was perfect and I received so many compliments on this dress. I am about 5'7 thicker on the bottom at 160lbs. This dress turned heads and random people were complimenting me. U wore it to my work gala and it wasn't too sexy or revealing. I did have to buy bra inserts to fill out the cups a little. I am a small c. Rent this dress!!! I would have bought t if I could!

Stunning Red Dress

The detail of this lace dress is just so beautiful. I wore this to a holiday sit down dinner. Fit is true to size and comfortable. Straps feel a bit awkward until you zip it up and they fall into place. No need for a bra or tape since the dress stayed in place. Received so many compliments from men and women. A dress I will likely rent again.

Romantic Stunner

The intricate lace of this #MoniqueLhuillier dress was gorgeous. The material is luxe and the craftsmanship is outstanding. I have a full bust and only opted for some silicone enhancers for a rounder cleavage shape. There was no stretch to the dress but the structure made it very forgiving. For being so substantial it was extremely comfortable. I went all night on the Vegas strip and felt like a million dollar bet!!

New Years Eve Dress

Very comfortable yet glam dress. Had an old Hollywood feel. The 4 wasn't available and probably would have been better. The 6 was quite large in the waist and hips so the lining would shift under the lace. But if you have a larger chest it might be worth it to have some wiggle room in the bottom half. Overall I was really happy with the dress.

Beautiful dress!!!

This dress was very beautiful and I got compliments all night. The dress is difficult to wear a bra with, so I opted not to. However there was some gapping at my bust. I wear 36C bra but I still felt like I didn't quite fill it out enough which made me self conscious all night. Other people seemed to love it though!

Beautiful but no give.

The dress was so beautiful and surprisingly comfortable to wear. I didn't have to wear a bra which was awesome, however I have wide hips and this dress has absolutely no stretch to it. Still looked great, but something to keep in mind if you're heavier on the bottom.

Stunning!

I usually wear a size zero but some reviews suggested to size up so I ordered the 2 and the 0 just in case. But the size two would not zip up all the way. Thanks to RTR excellent service I was able to exchange for new sizes. I revived the size 4 and 6 but the six was easy too big and the 4 was just perfect no an inch more not and inch less. The dress has no give. Although it's a stunning dress and I felt sexy and very Jessica rabbit. The area right under my busy was very very tight, the clasp dug into my side and I am a small chested girl (32B). The bust was a little loose. Overall it look gorgeous but a bit uncomfortable, but I felt so sexy lol.

Comfy, sexy and unique

This was a last minute backup for an amer heart assoc gala and I wasn't too excited about at first. I wanted a wow dress and don't typically love lace. I was wrong! This dress fit amazing and I didn't have to wear a bra. It was the perfect mix of sexy and comfortable to eat and dance in. The color is beautiful and the length is surprisingly nice. There ended up being people dressed less formal, so I was relieved not to have a red carpet gown on. This dress was stunning and my stylist was so awesome to suggest it. Wore it with nude heels, sparkly necklace and stud earrings. Was gorgeous and I felt beautiful! Thanks RTR!!

Lady in Red

I felt great in this dress. Fit true to size. I typically wear a 4 and opted for the 4 in this style. I'm curvier on the bottom and had no issues with this dress. I'm a 34C and needed a sticky-bra to help fill out and feel secure in the cups of the dress.

Beautiful dress, great color!

This dress was so flattering. It showed very curve but was a thick enough material that it covered everything nicely and just looked amazing. The red was true to the screen and stunning. My only challenge with this dress was the top. As others have mentioned, it leaves room for more full chested ladies but those of us on the smaller side have extra room. It wasn't a deal breaker for me but in the future, I'd get something to help fill out the top. You can't really wear a bra with this dress. Bottom line, I loved this and I would absolutely rent it again.

Amazing dress! Raspberry colored in natural light, red in photos - beautiful shade for blondes! Wanted some cleavage for the top - some push-up inserts did the trick! Beautiful lace detailing, quality fabric but not too heavy for summer outdoor wedding (80*F).

No stretch so it has to fit perfectly on your body

I wanted this dress to work for a holiday party, but with a larger chest, the top was really small and the rest was pretty big. I am 34C and wore a size 4 despite requiring a size 2 for the waist and hip part. Overall, I think unless you feel confident that your body is well proportioned, this dress could be risky to get since there is no stretch in the fabric.
