I wore this to a friend's wedding and I loved it! I got so many compliments about the color, quality, and the fit. The back is also so beautiful. I felt great wearing it. I had a couple friends ask me to send them the link to this dress so they could wear it to upcoming events!

I am absolutely in love with this PERFECT dress!!!

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was amazing. I didn't wear a bra because the dress is actually quite supportive. I received compliments all night long and probably got at least 4 more girls on RTR. The red is not really red, it is more pink than red which I found really unique and beautiful. PEople posted that the dress is not stretchy at all and I disagree. There was a lot more give than I thought there would be and I probably could've worn the size 12 if I wasn't going to such a classy affair. Do yourself a favor and rent this dress. Best wardrobe decision I've ever made by far

When I first tried it on it seemed a little tight but it actually fit just right and I could move around just fine. This was my 'back-up' dress and I'm glad I chose this one! The back is completely open so I had to use a sticky bra. I go to lots of social gatherings and this was the first time complete strangers came up to me and asked where I bought my dress. I was happy to tell everyone that I rented it! They were shocked!! This was a great experience and I will definitely rent something again! Thank you!

I felt super special in this dress!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size

Adorable dress -- the blue was out, so I got the red and I was happy about it. I am a curvy girl and inherited big arms, so the stop was a bit snug at first. Also, if you're getting this, but sure you have someone to zip-up and pin the back! I wore spanx and 4 inch heels and it fit perfectly. Definitely worth the spanx if you have a belly button that you see in other dresses (mine is visible) b/c it shows in this dress just a bit!

Lovely!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
As you can see by the picture, I was not the only one to rent this particular dress - what were the odds of both of us renting the same dress for the same event?!?! Anyway, the picture does not do justice to the color of the dress, it's definitely a more vibrant reddish-deep pink color. I loved it! My typical dress size is usually somewhere between an 8 and 6 but based on previous reviews, I rented up a size by ordering both a size 8 and 10. The 10 was big in the hips so I went with the 8. I also used sticky cups for a bra. I'd definitely rent this dress again, I thought we both looked fabulous. I also rented Nicole miller earrings - they looked fabulous with this dress.

Pretty lace dress with open back

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress could be worn without a bra, or with a stick-on Nubra. Strapless bra will show in the open back. Also, beware "back cleavage" if you have extra flesh on your back. I didn't wear the dress, as I found it not very flattering. It's nicely made, the boning around the waist and reaching up right under the bust makes it possible to wear without a bra, if you're not too busty. It's definitely a pinky/blue red. Not a warm red.

I rented the 6 and 8, and needed to go with the 8 to fit my bust. I was surprised at how supportive the top was, and opted for no bra. Overall, it's a beautiful dress and beautiful color. As other reviewers have mentioned, you'll likely need someone to help you get in and out of it.

Tons of complements!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Please note, you cannot wear this with a regular bra because of the open back, so plan accordingly. I used an adhesive bra and it worked just fine. I normally wear a 0 or 2, and the 2 fit better overall; however, i would not have been able to move my arms/shoulders in the 2. The person before me must have had the same problem because the hooks on the upper part of the 2 were all pulled open. The 4 was slightly roomy on me, but it wasn't notable and gave me plenty of room for eating/drinking and mobility for dancing. The material was slightly worn, but nothing too noticeable. It's a gorgeous dress - almost more of a deep pink - and you will get tons of complements when you wear it. The fabric isn't too hot/thick, so it's appropriate any time of the year.

Loooooved this dress!!!!!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is absolutely beautiful and I got compliments on it all night. It's solidly constructed and the ribbing/lace hide body imperfections. I paired it with the Kate Spade Chandelier Earrings which were a perfect match (I love red with gold accessories). Even though the back is partially open, it comes up high enough to hide back fat and shapewear (I wore Spanx and an adhesive bra underneath). My only complaint was that it bunched a little at the waist, but this is because I am short waisted so unless a dress is available in petites (which RTR does not currently offfer) I tend to have this problem. Also, one of the anchors for one of the hook and eye closures was missing, but I reported it to RTR and they will fix it before the next rental. Overall- this dress will make you feel fabulous, especially if you pair it with red soles :)

I would have liked the dress to be tighter throughout, but it did for perfectly in the bust. There were four hooks on the back upper piece, one of which was missing. But that was not noticeable. Overall I would recommend it but not rent again.

This dress was fantastic! You cannot wear a regular bra with this dress - the material of the dress is fairly thick so I felt comfortable without a bra. The slip at the bottom showed a bit when I sat down but not a huge deal. I was very happy with the dress overall.

Really beautiful dress. The color was a blue based red with a pinkish hue. Very flattering. I am still trying to lose some baby weight so the larger size worked better for me. Great length and smoothed out my "bumps" :-) you definitely need someone to clip the back for you and I was able to wear a bra but slid the back fastener way low. Otherwise you could go bra-less or wear one of the front only bras. This dress is bold, so it isn't for the faint of heart. Very classy. I wore with nude/gold heels and it looked great

Wedding Weekend Memories

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for a wedding my husband was in, which happened to fall on our 1 year wedding anniversary weekend. This dress reminded me of my wedding dress with the lace, shoulder detail and the back cut-out so it was perfect for the occasion. I was nervous I'd need to wear spanx or a bra, but didn't need either because the dress hid everything! I used silicone stickies in place of a bra just in case, though. I'm 5'1" and it it right above my knees and was slimming through my hips. It didn't really have a stretchy material, but it wasn't constricting. The color was awesome! I thought it might've been a little bright, but in person, and pictures, it was a deep red-ish burgundy. I wish I owned this dress! Got a ton of compliments all night.

I absolutely love this dress. I wore it to my brother's wedding and I got a ton of compliments. The red color really pops and the lace detail and back are what make this dress. I felt very comfortable in it. I think it's conservative enough but still feels trendy and a little sexy. I wore the stick on bra and it worked with no issues. I probably wouldn't go braless. I was able to dance and move all night!

It fit me perfectly in the top, but was a little baggy in the stomach area (I'm not complaining though, I did a lot of eating so I was grateful for the extra room!). I was able to dance around just fine. The only problem I had was the lining popping out from underneath the lace, but that was hardly noticeable.

Great dress for a wedding. Conservative but open back and lacy top make it youthful.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I really like this dress, but it didn't fit as well as I hoped. I wore a 6, which was too big on top. You can see in the picture that the lace around the neckline isn't as tight as it is supposed to be. The four fit much better on top, but was too tight on the bottom for the amount of dancing I was planning on doing! Anyway, I think it was a great dress, and I still wore it, but it just wasn't really made for my body type so I probably wouldn't rent it again.

Sexy but classy dress that was great for an evening wedding!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I LOVED this dress and have never gotten so many compliments from strangers! As a busty girl, I always feel like I'm revealing a lot in clothes that might look conservative on other people. Well, this dress made me feel sexy, but not self-conscious of my cleavage all night, and it was so much fun to dance in. The back definitely does not allow for a bra, but even with 34DDD/34F boobs, I felt concealed and supported enough to be comfortable. It hit me just at the knee (I'm 5'4.5") and the quality simply felt beautiful. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be able to resist renting this one again very soon! Such a winner.

Perfect Dress for a Tea Shower.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for my future daughter-in-law's Tea Shower. It was perfect for the event. I usually wear a 4, but it was a little tighter than I liked, so I went with the 6. If you are unsure, I would go a size up.I wore a "sticky" bra, and that worked great. Some women may not even need a bra, there is good coverage and support. It seemed a little loose in the neckline, but was not an issue. This is my first Rent the Runway experience, and it was a success. I am renting a dress for the wedding, and I hope it works as well as this!

I got a lot of compliments on this dress, and another friend at the wedding had on the same dress in blue! I think it fits true to size.

Wore this for an Austin wedding that was naturey/not super formal. Ordered two sizes, 4 & 6. Wore the 6 opposed to the 4 due to having broad shoulders, the bottom was then more 'danceable' with the larger size. I will note, that the two dresses I received were NOT the same color at all. The 4 was a magenta/pink and the 6 was the what was pictures online. Thankfully, the 6 fit. I wore a adhesive bra due to the back and it kind of flattened my chest which made me :(. I guess I should have worn a push-up adhesive bra for lift!

You can't imagine how many compliments I received on this dress! Made me feel so glamorous!!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Rented this dress for my brother-in-laws wedding. It was a fall evening event in the Midwest. I was looking for something stylish but conservative enough to wear in church and around my in-laws and a color to compliment the navy blue tux my husband had to wear as part of the wedding party. This dress fit the bill and was beyond perfect. The fit was flattering and the color was extremely wearable. I don't wear a lot of red but the compliments I received on this dress might change my ways. The lace showed signs of wear in a few places, particularly the armpit area but none of it was visible to others. Helpful hint: I used my hair straightener to flatten out the raw lace edges around the neckline, back opening, and sleeves. This made all the difference in showing off that detail.

Gorgeous rental for a formal wedding.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I'm usually an 8 and thought that the 10 would fit just right but it was still a little snug. The cut of the dress required a larger size and the fabric doesn't allow for much stretching. I was slightly uncomfortable but wore the dress anyway because it was so beautiful. A 12 would have been perfect. I would rent this again in a different color.
