This was a perfect birthday dress!! I felt like a princess!

I rented a 2, could have gone a size smaller. The bust was a bit large.

Beautiful but too poofy!

I had this sent to me as a last minute back up. While it's an absolutely beautiful dress, it was a little too much for the event I was attending. I can see this being good for a dance or costume party. Not a formal affair. The back is low but VERY flattering. It didn't punch or squeeze in any of the wrong areas and fit true to size. Also, I'm smaller chested and can't see anything bigger than a B fitting without popping out :)

Felt like a Holiday Princess!

I received so many compliments on this dress and I really felt great! I found my usual size 6 to be small in the bust (I wear a 34D) so I ended up wearing the 8, which was a little large up top but nothing I couldn't ignore for one night. I'm a little short-waisted, so I think the 8 would've fit perfectly if I were a couple inches taller in the torso-just something to keep in mind if you are curvy but still relatively petite. It is definitely a dramatic but, if you're someone that likes a whole lot of look, you will like this dress!

The lady in red! Talk about a head turner!

The color of this dress is to die for. I usually don't wear red, but it was a New Year's Eve wedding and I wanted to go all out. I'm big chested, but the fit was perfect and the cups in the front did the job of a bra. The bodice fit me like a glove and really gave a nice waist line especially when compared with the GIANT skirt. The tulle on this dress was allot... I'm a risky dresser but even the puffy-ness of this skirt made me a little nervous. I got so many compliments and there was not one person that didn't notice this dress. The dress is allot so I was paired it with some simple glittery stud earrings and that was enough. Risk takers .. this is YOUR DRESS!

Wearing red makes a statement like no other. This dress makes EVERYONE happy. <3

Fits beautifully and slightly small but almost true to size. The tulle stayed fluffed all night. I think my favorite part was the low back. the straps never slipped down! The only thing that felt slightly uncomfortable was the ribbing but never enough to make me not want to wear it.

Beautiful!

I've never gotten so many compliments on a dress! Multiple people said I was the best dressed there. The dress runs mostly true to size, but I would recommend ordering the second size smaller (I wore a size smaller so I could wear without a bra).

Just absolutely wonderful.

Both sophisticated and incredibly fun to wear. The peplum top gives it elegant structure, the low back makes it sexy, and the jagged tulle skirt of course makes it wonderfully playful. My fiance and I both wore red converse (he wore a dark blue velvet suit) and had a fabulous night! Fit: I have tiny boobs so the chest was a little too big for me, but it still looked okay. Waist was too tight for me since it hit at my ribcage (since I'm so tall). But I'm guessing it'd be a normal size 2 for someone of average height.

Felt like a princess in this red tulle dress!

Flirty and fun, the top was sophisticated with a deeper v neckline but a poofy bottom that made the outfit more whimsical. This dress has an awesome exposed back that would look best without a bra, or with a NU bra. The lace provides a structured support in the front so braless is totally feasible. This dress fit small in the waist as the lace has little give. I was wearing a 2 and the 0 would have been too tight. I would recommend sizing up for the backup. The hip area had plenty of room and the tulle falls loosely like a ballerina around from your waist out. This is defs a hip friendly dress. At 5’7” this dress hit below the knee almost mid calf. Great for black tie wedding or any event that you want to make a statement. Would go great with some dangly earrings and a shiny clutch.

Best dress ever

This dress is the stuff that dreams are made of. I felt like a complete princess at the ballet and the bold red color definitely made me stand out. The quality is really nice too especially if you're looking for a poofy tulle dress. As for sizing, I thought it was pretty true to size. The most fitted part for me was the waist so order according to your waist size! It is pretty low cut with a low back so definitely have a nu bra handy. Best rental ever.

Big, bright, and gorgeous

First: this dress is very, very poofy. I'm talking old-timey cage hoop skirt diameter. I didn't end up wearing it to what I had planned because of that (it was a tight seating situation) but I'll definitely rent again because it's a unique and totally fun dress. The combo of the poof and the red makes it an absolute showstopper. I can only give four stars tho because there were some issues for me with the fit- the bust was a bit loose (and I'm a 34DD) but waist was a bit tight. But the style is so amazing that I will deal with it once I find an appropriate event.

A princess's dream dress

This dress made me feel so special and princess-like. There's about 7 layers of tulle over two layers of sateen skirts. It's very fitted with boning on top yet dreamy and pouffy at the bottom. Only reason why I have marked it as 4 instead of 5 stars is the fit. The waist was very close but for a full busted person, the bust was loose for me. Yet I can't size down because the waist would then be too small. I didn't end up wearing but I would rent again with some boob tape to secure myself on top next time.

Gorgeous show-stopper dress

This dress was absolutely stunning in person. However, the corset is very tight, and the straps are nonadjustable. My measurements are 34", 26", 36", and the size 2 seemed to be half an inch too small in the waist. I would recommend sizing up if you're in between sizes.

A surprising love affair

Initially, this dress scared me. It was poofy, red, bright, and reminded me too much of a ballerina costume. But, my trusted fashionistas at the DC RTR insisted I try it on and I'm so grateful to them for that! This dress was a show-stopper. It looks much different on your body than it does on the rack. I ended up loving everything about it -- the tulle, the open back, the poofiness, the color, the bust, the lace, everything! I felt like a princess in this dress and I loved the way it moved as I walked and danced. I received compliments left and right all night long, and didn't want to take it off! Note: I wore this to a semi-formal party.

Stand Out Dress

You won't see another dress like this. The red is flattering on all skin tones and the length, more of a tea length on me, felt fresh in a room full of floor length gowns. My only issue was the straps slipped down my shoulders a few times but if I'd caught that before leaving the house I could have easily pinned or taped them. This is a great option as long as you are comfortable with attention!

Gorgeous, flattering dress

This is a beautiful, well-made, and flattering dress. It was extremely comfortable for a full night of dancing. It is very low-cut, so if you're not comfortable with that, maybe go with a different dress.

Didn't work out BUT this dress is GORGEOUS!

I ordered this dress for my friends wedding. I typically wear size 6 but I recently lost 10 pounds so I ordered size 4 for my second size. I didn't fit in either. I needed a size 8 to be able to fully zip it. Also, this dress is good for someone with a fuller bust. I did not fill out the top in the slightest so this dress did not work for me. This is the most beautiful dress I have rented and I love it so so much but it did not work for my body type.

Perfect birthday dress

Beautiful dress that makes you feel like a Princess. It does run fairly large in the chest area and the straps are very long so that is something to consider when renting. Im usually a size 2/4 and wish I would have went with the 2

Too small so definitely size up!

This dress is gorgeous and the tulle is puffy to perfection. The only downfall is it runs small. I wear a six and orders an eight and it was too tight in the waist. If I went any larger though the top would be too big.

Va va voom

Truth be told my husband selected this outfit for an upcoming date night to watch a play. I absolutely adore the dress but it's a little too formal for the event. Especially considering the volume of the skirt it would be inappropriate to try to scoot past the other patrons of the performance in this ensemble. If I had something more formal to wear it to I would. As it stands now I didn't wear out of the house but I still enjoy trying it on.

Dancing all night in this amazing dress!

I can't rate this dress highly enough- it's a true show-stopper. The amount of compliments I received was crazy, but even more gratifying was how amazing I FELT in the gown. The only other dress I've ever felt so beautiful wearing was my wedding gown. The bust on it was a bit big, but it was a simple fix for me, where I simply basted a couple of loose stitches on the inside, which were easily removed before I sent the dress back. Or someone without sewing skills, a padded bust cup insert would have been another good solution. The dress was understandably very wrinkled when it arrived, but was easy to steam/iron for a perfect look. Another "pro" for this dress is that it's so stunning, you really don't need flashy accessories to complete the look. Strappy, nude heels and a nice pair of earrings are all you need. The dress is comfortable to wear, and light as a feather, so even on a hot summer night would be a great choice. I literally can't say enough positive things about wearing this dress. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

Unforgettable Red Dress

This was actually my back-up dress for a cocktail gala where the guests were supposed to wear red, black, or white. When I received it, though, the boning was sticking out and rubbing against my arms. I called customer service, and they were fantastic. I had a new dress overnighted. The first one I tried on (with the damaged boning) was a 0 and it fit well. However the 0 in my new order was too tight, so I ended up wearing the 2. It is definitely tight in the lower ribcage area and generous in the bust, but it wasn't anything impossible to manage with fashion tape. I received compliments all night long, and it ended up being the perfect dress for the evening. Because it does have a very full skirt and leans on the side of being more formal, I opted for very simple accessories to dress it down a bit. I loved this dress and wish we could've taken more pictures in it!

Gorgeous dress but the bodice felt like it was hanging on for dear life

What a spectacularly fun dress!! I really wanted to wear it. I was throwing a party and thought it would be the perfect dress for it. Unfortunately I didn't feel secure with the top. The bodice was held together by two thin straps with a very low back. Given the amount of tulle in the bottom, the dress has a weight to it, as such, I didn't think two straps felt secure enough to hold the dress. Moreover, I wish the straps were adjustable. I have a short torso, and I wish I can bring up the dress by an inch or so. Overall, I really love the dress, it's so unique and fun. It would be a perfect dress to be photographed in, not sure I feel comfortable dancing the night away in it!

Not for short girls with big boobs

The straps were too long so there was no support for me in the boobs department. I had to wear a cami under. If you're tall, with perky boobs and a tiny waist it's Great

Sex and the City Style!

This dress is very beautiful. I wore it for a Sex and the City Soirée and I got tons of compliments. The only problem that I had was on the Breast area--it was a little big for me. Other than that the dress is fabulous. I paired with my Blue Manolo's and it was a great success!!!

One of the most unique dresses

I wanted to rent this dress for past occasions, but everyone told me it looked like an "80s prom dress." However when my initial dress I chose for this particular wedding wasn't available, I called Rent the Runway's spectacular customer service and they let me choose this dress in the other's place, no sweat. I am a size 6, but ordered an 8 as my backup, because a lot of reviews said the bust area ran small. Unfortunately, with my already small bust and slightly wider stomach and waist area, this dress was surprisingly difficult for me to be comfortable in. The bust ended up being too large, and the zipper didn't go all the way up in the back for either size. I ended up finagling it to make it work, and it looked great and was easy to dance in once I figured out how to make it sit properly on my body. It ended up looking gorgeous and I got a lot of compliments, but I was not the most comfortable in this outfit, and my experience with this dress was not the most enjoyable! :( If you are looking at this dress and you like it, I would suggest someone with a slightly larger bust with a slimmer waist. I think that's the way my body would've felt the most comfortable in this dress.

Wish shorter women were in mind.

The dress is perfect... except the tulle skirt hits my ankles. The models should be more average size to depict accuracy. Most women aren't 5'9".
