I love the color! It really stands out.
Pockets are a great extra and the lace design overlay. Very pretty and lots of compliments!

Great for a formal affair or wedding!
Fit was great. I'm 5' 3" and it was a tad longer than I may have wanted, but it was still perfectly flattering. Because of the open back, you cannot wear a bra. Has large pockets and so could easily carry phone/lipstick, etc and it wouldn't weigh the dress down. There's a filter on my photo, so the dress looks less red/bright than it actually is. Very comfortable for dancing. Pairs great with a big chunky necklace. I was worried the lace over the dress would seem too summery, but it worked just fine for a February event!

Poofier than expected but still lovely.

Absolutely beautiful dress
This dress was absolutely gorgeous. I wore it to a fraternity formal. I got so many complements throughout the night. It fit really well, it was true to size. The bottom was poofier than I thought it would be from the pictures, but I loved it. It was a little big in the bust, but it didn't look ill-fitting. The open back as great, there was no gapping in it at all. The dress was very comfortable and the pockets were really nice. It was my first time renting from RTR and I'd definitely do it again. I had to change the date of my rental and it was so easy to accommodate. It was a great experience overall

This dress really stands out. The skirt is full, the color is rich and the open back is sexy.
The waist was a little tight on me, but the chest had some room, so I didn't want to go another size up. The material is stunning and the color really stands out. I would highly recommend the dress!

Beautiful, Classic Dress!
I wore this dress to an event at the James Beard Foundation. I ordered the 2 as my regular size and the 0 as my backup. The 2 was very big at the waist and the criss-cross ribbons in the back were gaping, so I ended up wearing the 0. The color is vibrant red and the structure of the dress is flattering. It has a slightly retro and whimsical feel to it. My only complaint is the zipper - for a designer dress, it is not very good quality and kept getting caught on the fabric lining the dress. I actually had to have my dad zip me up as I held the fabric away from the zipper. Once we finally got the dress on, it was great!

How beautiful the dress was and that it arrived when they said it would !
I've never been good at online shopping because my size varies so much but I fell in love with this dress and had to get it. I'm SO happy I did because the dress was a PERFECT fit. I felt so beautiful in it. It fit very nice across my chest and was very comfortable. The back was a little lose but a smaller size would've been too tight on my chest. Loved the detailing and the color is just as red as it looks. The dress is more poofy than I thought but it was manageable. Overall great dress!

The dress fit beautifully and was perfect for a daytime wedding.
The top portion of the dress is great for someone with a fuller chest but otherwise the dress fit great. The open back made it fun and the lace made it perfect for an outdoor day time wedding. I received compliments all day. The length was appropriate and the full skirt was really fun. I was comfortable all day could not be happier.

I received a lot of comliments on this dress. The back is AMAZING.
The dress was really comfortable. Surprisingly I was able to go without a bra which, for someone having larger bust NEVER happens but this dress felt very secure. One thing I did have trouble with is the bottom didn't seem to want to hang right. I brought a steamer but it still flapped weird.

The dress fit great, but I wasn't a fan of the poofy hemline.
The dress fit great. I was planning on wearing it to a dinner birthday party, but decided not to. I wasn't a fan of the forced (but light!) fullness of the skirt. The bottom/hemline of the dress has a 2" tall band sewn into it to maintain a full circle. It's stiff rather than flowy.

Fun party dress
This dress had a beautiful open back and enough give where I could drink and eat all night in it comfortably. The red lace was pretty, although I would have liked it to be a higher quality.

I wore this dress for a formal event for my sorority and received many compliments!!
It fit very true to size. The only con is that it can get very wrinkly whenever it is shipped because of the thick fabric along the bottom. Otherwise, I absolutely loved the fit and feel of the dress. It was very comfortable for a night of dancing!

Back up dress for a wedding...
I ordered a similar style (red A-line) dress that was unavailable when my event rolled up, so I was sent this one as a backup dress. While it's a pretty dress, it reminded me of something I'd wear to a Christmas party. The skirt was way poofier than it looked in the picture, and, overall, it just wasn't a flattering dress that I'd ever choose to rent.

Awesome color! Good dancing dress!
I ordered a 10 and an 8. The 10 was way too big, but the 8 was slightly snug around the waist. I also thought the chest area was a bit big. However- the dress was beautiful and looked awesome on! I got so many compliments.

Red show stopper! Be prepared for stares and compliments!
It fit beautifully. I want to buy this dress! The only slightly negative thing was readjusting the top left side because of the criss cross in the back, it sometimes didn't lay flat across the top neckline. This is seriously way more stunning in person. In pictures you don't see the incredible detail. The lace overlay on parts is incredible and it was perfect for a breezy outdoor wedding because it did not blow up (other women were busy all night keeping their dress down)! I am thrilled with this dress and don't want to return it. If you aren't sure about it, just rent it. You will be so glad!!

Awkward top does not fit larger bust sizes.
I am always a size 6 or 8 and have a 36D bust size with a 28 waist. The top of this dress would not fit around my top. Very awkward fit considering the waist would have fit.

Gorgeous dress for a gorgeous night!
The fit was great and true to size. I have a 34 DDD bust and I was easily able to go bra-less with this dress. The only cons are that the dress wrinkles easily in the front, which was probably only noticeable to me, and the back made me kind of nervous about back fat. The back was actually my favorite part of it but I would suggest if you are worried about the back being tight, size up with your spare. I got tons of compliments on the dress and will definitely be ordering from RTR again!

Compliments all night!
My hips don't lie, so this dress was perfect for me. Since the back is open, you can't wear a normal bra. I decided to go with the NuBra (purchased from RTR) which stayed on throughout a night of dancing. Strangers kept coming up and complimenting me on my dress all night. This was my first RTR experience, and I'll definitely be a returning customer!

Gorgeous dress
Beautiful color. The 12 was too big on my bust but I liked the length. The 10 fit perfect but was a little too short for my liking. I really wanted the dress to work out and maybe after losing a few pounds I'll rent again.

the dress is STUNNING. I got it for my high school graduation and it happened to match my gown PERFECTLY. I loved the dress, although it was a little big in the bust area. overall, the dress was magnificent. I would suggest getting a smaller size as back up.

Felt like Taylor Swift!
I was hesitant about this dress for a May wedding once I realized it is lace but it worked out perfect for a formal evening wedding at a luxury hotel! It definitely ran big up top, as I wore a Nu Bra to fill it out and it still wasn't as tight as I would have liked. None the less, it looked great! The back is stunning and I received so many compliments on it! The skirt is definitely puffy and twirls nicely on the dance floor. The hem at the bottom of the skirt that creates the fullness was very wrinkled when I got it but nothing a light ironing couldn't fix. Overall I felt great in this dress and would definitely rent it again in the summer or winter!

Best dress I've rented
I use RTR all the time and this dress has been my favorite rental yet. I have a large chest and can never find open back dresses that work and this one worked perfectly. I usually end up wearing the 8 when I get a 6 and 8 but the 6 fit perfectly. Lots of compliments - I highly recommend this dress!

loved the color and lace
I rented sizes 14 and 16 for a wedding, and wore the size 14. I could have worn either dress, however the 14 seemed a bit shorter and more flattering since it was a tighter fit. The dress fit pretty well, despite the zipper on the size I actually wore getting a little stuck on the fabric at one spot. I was worried that I would have issues with it feeling too loose or tight in certain areas with the open back but I felt comfortable without wearing a bra (usually 36DD or 38D) and my flaws were hidden. The bottom of the dress has about a 2" band helping the dress to keep its shape as other reviews mention. I liked the fuller, A-line skirt though. The hem was an inch or two above my knee. I felt very feminine and confident wearing this, and received several compliments throughout the night.

Almost 5 stars - Loved this dress
This was nearly perfect. Only a bit big in the bust and some minor "wrinkles" in the way the fabric laid along the bottom seam. Other than that, it was amazing and so comfortable to wear. Got tons of compliments all night.

Really classic
I wore this to the annual spring party of university. The color is so amazing and I love the design of the back! Got a lot of compliments! And the pockets by the side of this dress really make everything convenient for I don't need a clutch for the party so I can dance without burden. But this dress runs slightly bigger compared to the similar We Belong Together dress I rented last time. That dress fitted perfectly well on me, but this one was a bit loose on the waist. And I do wish that the length of the skirt could be shorter. This is a really classic dress which can fit any formal occasion, but I would recommend it to someone taller and plumper than me.

Adorable dress, but not great for petites
I absolutely loved this dress and was able to make it work, but the fit wasn't great. I'm petite and have a kind of a short midsection and larger hips/thighs, so I was hoping this cinched waist and flared skirt would flatter, but the waist on the smaller size was unbearably tight (no stretch) and the top on the larger size was huge, which was problematic because you can't really wear a bra with this dress. I ended up having to get a very padded stick on bra just to fill out the top, and I'm not small chested by any means. I think this dress would work better on folks 5'5" or taller, or people with a longer torso.

The color and lace detail is beautiful
The underarms dug in. I could never tell if it was because of the lace or just the sizing. It has pockets! The color is gorgeous. The flare of the skirt is a bit bigger than I had planned but not in a bad way. Wore it for my 25th and definitely felt special.

So flattering and fun!
I wore this dress to my Masters graduation party. The fit was great and it looked stunning! A nubra is definitely necessary if you have a smaller chest like me, since the high neck can flatten you out. The color is very bold in person. Really loved it!

The easy delivery and process with RTR made it all worth it!
The dress was a bit loose on top for my chest but overall true to size. You definitely need a backless bra. The color was just like the picture and I felt beautiful in the dress! Love the side pockets to it as well.

fun & flirty dress
I wore this dress for a summer wedding rehearsal dinner. It was formal enough and the open back kept me cool! I loved the back detail, which is all lace- but wasn't able to wear a standard bra. The bottom hem is thick and gives the dress a fun, full shape. The neck was a little snug for me, but overall a great dress!

GREAT dress, amazing color
The dress was just as gorgeous in person as it is online. The only problem I had with the dress is that it was a little big on the lower back portion of the dress. I went to the Chicago store to pick up a dress last minute, and an 8 was the only size they had left. I know a 6 would have fit perfectly. it definitely didn't look bad and wasn't noticeable at all. I received a ton of compliments on the dress and I can see this color looking great on anyone. The back of the dress is sexy and I felt sexy in it. it also had...WAIT FOR It....pockets!! I recommend this dress to anyone, Monique really knows how to make a great dress.

So many compliments!
This picture does not do this dress any justice. This dress is gorgeous in color and very comfortable. It would look better on someone with boobs to fill out the top, but it looked fine on my smaller chested bod. The back is gorgeous and I loved having pockets!! Only issue was the zipper is annoying, it gets stuck easily and took forever every time I had to zip. Definitely recommend!

Finding a great dress for my birthday in a really easy and cost-effective process.
Pretty adorable dress. I did wish that it wasn't such a wide cross in the back, but it was comfortable. Even after dinner I was still comfortable in it. I also wished I laid flat on my front, but it bubbled up a lot. Good length. I don't know if I would ever pay the retail price of this dress (or even buy it forever), but it was perfect for the one time use.

Such a fun dress with pockets!
This was my first RTR experience and the dress was to die for! It has pockets (which was a great add on) and the back was so pretty. I wore my usual dress size because it kept the girls in check without having to wear a bra-but could have work a size up because it was snug in the waist. Definitely a fun dress for a wedding

Great dress, the picture doesn't do it any justice.!
I loved this dress, the back was both sexy and classy. The photo doesn't show it well but the lace details on the dress are gorgeous in person. I received so many compliments on the cut and color. I wore it with red lips and just pulled my hair back into a ponytail. I'd highly recommend this dress!

Tough zipper but great dress!
Got this dress for a two day wedding and it was a great choice! Like others have said, the zipper is tough! And that is not an understatement. Even zipping it when it's not one was tough and made my finger sore. The zipper issue is what made me choose to wear this on the first wedding when my boyfriend was around to help. (Solo for the second wedding day). Despite the zipper, the fit was pretty good. Sometimes a 12 is slightly too small by my ribcage, but fit perfectly for me. There was just a little room by my underarms... But worked out fine. Would rent again! Just as long as someone is around to zip me up.
