Amazing!

The color is not as bright as pictured, more of a sophisticated dark red. It was my back up dress but I ended up wearing it instead because it was so gorgeous. I have a slim yet curvy 5'5'' frame and if you have the goods you will fill it out beautifully.

Pretty color

I ordered this for an evening of drinks/dinner with clients. The dress is a beautiful color and the back is striking, but the fit didn't work for me and I wasn't that crazy about the fabric (it was thicker than I expected and a little much for a hot summer night). I ended up wearing the wall street woman dress by Nicole Miller instead (which I love).

Loved this dress!

What a great choice for a wedding rehearsal dinner. This dress allows you to stay simple but still feel it has a little edge with the back details. I was able to wear the dress with a regular bra and a little fashion tape that came with the RTR shipment. I would highly recommend this dress.

Sorry it didn't work out

Size worn: 4

My original dress became unavailable and so I was excited that I was able to receive this dress instead. The dress is beautiful. The color is a soft red, more of a rose color. The fabric has stretch and the texture has a canvas like quality, but by no means is it thick like canvas, it just has that same surface texture. Spanx is your friend in this dress...very body hugging. The top part is very small and the reason I chose not to wear it. I don't have a large chest (34b) and even though I wasn't totally falling out, it was more cleavage then I wanted to show for this particle event. Pretty dress, well constructed.

great for nye!!!

RTR came through again! My original NYE order got stuck in NJ b/c of the storm. RTR overnited me this dress and another high end choice for an even exchange! They were out of the size 8 equivalent, so I went up to a 10. It was cut so beautifully, that the extra room didn't detract, in fact it fit me perfectly up top and was the comfiest sexy dress I've ever worn. I didn't have time to find black satin opera gloves, but wore a black mink stole and sheer black hose and black patent pumps. My jewelry was a delicate Y necklace of onyx and thin black hoops with teeny diamonds.

So easy! First time! Wonderful dress. So well designed it hugs everything! Lots of compliments!

It was a little smaller in the bust. Didn't wear a bra with it. Didn't need to. The rest of the dress was perfect. I did wear Spanx just to make sure it was nice and smooth. Perfect for the afternoon reception I was attending. The 6 would have worked as well but the 4 felt like it was made for me. Lots of seams in the pattern so it hugs the whole body! Go up a size if you are a little shy.

Elegant without trying

This dress is awesome. I wish I got more pictures in it. It is thick fabric and it does not give very much. It is kind of a lighter red. I did not need to wear a bra because it held me up perfectly. Highly recommended. Worth the money.
