Cute idea but slightly weird fit.
Sadly I did not take any pictures in this dress but it was cute but nothing spectacular. The fabric is thick and comfortable but fits a little loose. I wore the 0 and honestly could have sized down on that because it felt like it should fit more snug on my body. I thought i would love the frilled side hem but it looked odd.

Cute, comfortable, and great for the holidays!
I loved this dress! I wore the 6 because I'm super tall and needed a bit more coverage. But overall the dress is very flattering and comfortable. Many compliments from others at the holiday party :-)

Great color and unique cut!
I'm 5'5" and 115 lbs. I could have worn the size 0 or 2, but found that the 0 was more flattering. It was a better length and less boxy. Only negative was that I am a 32C and the chest area was a little odd with a bigger chest. There is a seam that hit right at my chest. Overall, great dress!

The perfect "little red dress!"
The neckline of this adorable dress is so unique and makes a statement! I wore this to a Red Dress Luncheon and got tons of compliments. I am 5'2 and thought the length was perfect. I am also rocking a baby bump and the dress had enough stretch to work well!

Makes your back & shoulders look great!
I got so many compliments on this dress. It was very easy to wear and the fabric is very forgiving. I would get a size zero if I rented this one again because the fabric is very stretchy and quite thick and would have felt better a little bit tighter. Overall, a great dress for any occasion!

Loved it!
I'm guessing that this red is the color of the moment, I walked in and was 1 of 3 women in the same color! Not that I minded, this dress is very unique and I was comfortable all night! I originally put it on and worried that it may be too short but it ended up being fine! I will say if you're taller it may end up being an issue for you. As other reviews have pointed out the dress is stretchy however it is not form fitted. Also, it did begin to wrinkle by the end of the night but after a night of dancing and drinking I didn't mind! I would definitely rent this again!

Fun red dress
I rented this as part of my unlimited subscription and wore it out one night. I wore a 2 but probably could have gotten away with a 0 because the dress seemed a little stretched out and "tired". Otherwise, I really liked wearing it.

Excellent customer service!!
UPS delivered this dress to the wrong house by no fault of RTR. When I called to inform RTR of the shipping mishap the first thing the representative wanted to do was make sure I found another outfit for my event! The customer service was outstanding! A neighbor ended up bringing the original dress that was mistakingly delivered to her house by the end of the night. The dress fit perfectly, had a good amount of stretch to it and was comfy! I'm 5'3 and the length was perfect for a bachelorette party type setting! This was my first RTR experience and I can confidently say it won't be my last!

Runs a little large, but the 0 wasn't too tight. Material is stretchy and thick. Lines are flattering.

I wore this dress for our Christmas dinner party for work. Quality fabric, and stretchy enough it was super comfortable. Definitely would've liked to keep it!

It worked for a Vegas bachelorette for someone who didn't want to wear a bandage dress! As an A cup, it was great finding a dress that fit me like a glove for once.

Fun dress - great fit
Super flattering, and unique dress. For reference, I'm 5'3 and this dress fell at a perfect length (not too short not too long). The material is thinner than I thought it would be so would definitely suggest getting seamless underwear or spanx.

So cute but so short
This dress was a backup option. It is so cute, beautiful color and material, fit in all the right places, but I am 5'1'' and this barely covered my butt. Could be due to a rounder booty but dresses are rarely too short on my frame. Wish it would have fit better!

birthday
this dress for the most part fit true to size, but the straps were a bit long so you have to hike your bra down a bit in the back if you don't want it to show. the material is almost neoprene-y, thicker than i expected. flares out a bit too soon so probably best worn on a girl with curves.

Easy no wrinkles
This dress has sort of a stretch to it. Also the fabric has a very thick texture. Great dress, no wrinkles all night

Great last minute dress!
Rented this dress the Monday before my event. On such short notice, I was glad RTR happen to have my size. I received many compliments throughout the night! Loved the top of the dress! Also, the fabric was nice. No problems dancing in this dress!

The color of the dress was so vibrant, a nice orangy-red! And the detail at the top stood out!
The dress recieved many compliments. The color and the cuts at the top are beautiful, really for any skin tone and body type. However, I did not like the material or the sizing. I found that the dress ran big even though I wore an 0, and the material was like a terry cotton towel instead of a formal dress. Overall, the dress was beautiful and I am thinking of buying it!

Very fun
First of all, I was supposed to get this dress on a Thursday and it actaully came two days early so that was great. I wore it to a very casual summer wedding and got tons of compliments. It is a very comfortable material. It's a very flattering fit. My only concern was that it was a bit short. I am typically very comfortable with short, and pretty used to it since I am 5'7" (almost 5'8") but this seemed a little shorter than my norm. I definitely couldnt bend over but since it was summer and a more casual setting it still worked. The material of the dress also has enough stretch that I was able to pull it down and it pretty much stayed down. I was a tad concerned that it was too short/not as flattering but as soon as I showed my friends, they told me I was insane and that I had to wear it because it looked great. Overall, I had a gret experience renting and wearing this dress. Would definitely recommend.

Birthday Dress
I rented this for my patriotic themed Flag Day birthday party. I wanted something red to go with my red/white/blue party flair (sunglasses/necklaces/headbands...) and it was the perfect color. It did run large. I wore a size down but I could've probably even worn a size down from that b/c the fabric is very stretchy and almost spongey. It was borderline unflattering b/c the looseness of the dress caused it to bunch and made it look like there were bulges that I didn't have. I'd recommend wearing some sort of shaper/smoother under this dress.

Stylist review!
I absolutely loved this dress! I rented it for my bridal shower and could not have been happier. It does run a little big so I would recommend sizing down for back up. The fabric is very stretchy and very comfortable. This is a must rent!

Super stretchy, great for baby bump
Great dress. The fabric is incredibly stretchy so I was able to wear this with my 5.5 month baby bump. I wore a size 2, so I would say this dress obviously runs a little large. I was a 2/4 prepregnancy.

Color and unique straps make this dress stand out
This dress was my backup and I ended up not wearing it. However I plan to rent it in the future. It definitely runs big so size down. If you are at all uncomfortable with your midsection I would suggest using a shaping slip or avoiding this dress because it is not very forgiving!

A gorgeous, bright color and a unique neckline make heads turn
The really stretchy material does the opposite of sucking you in -- everything shows, and it feels a little loose. So I wore the size 4, instead of my usual 6. This dress is not remotely forgiving, I was sucking in my tummy all night --definitely recommend spanx for this one. It's also very short. I wore with navy strappy, heels. A great dress for Vegas!

I really wanted to wear this dress but the crepe material was unflattering to my tummy pooch.
I'm normally a size 0/2 and this dress was amazing until my stomach region. I was wearing Spanx underneath the dress but it really curved around my tummy pooch. I also kept finding the zipper got caught in the fabric a few times while I was zipping it up. It's such a cute dress but I couldn't wear it at all.

Very strange...
The style, shape and material of this dress is just...odd. The neckline is not good for anyone with a bust, not flattering at all. The fabric is very stretchy, but thick and it kind of just sits there, it doesn't flow of move. Dress is fairly short, so if that is something that would bother you, I wouldn't rent this dress for that reason either.

Orange is the New Black
Color definitely stood out among all the black. The details were great! Subtle but rightly placed. The cut out on the shoulders were cool and the slight flare on the skirt gave it a modern look. The fit was great and the material was thick but not hot.

Indecently short and unwearable
I'm only 5'2 and the hemline was obscene. I did not wear the dress, as a light breeze would have ruined my entire night.

Super fun
Super last minute I ended up renting this dress and it was amazing. The color is gorgeous, it's like a coral red. I got so many compliments. The neckline is awesome if you like a high neck that shows off your shoulders. I ordered both the 0 and 2 - I went with the 0, didn't even try on the 2 because the 0 fit perfect. The fabric doesn't look it, but its super stretchy, almost like spandex. It's thick though, which makes it super flattering and eliminates the need for spanx. Would definitely recommend!

Great texture to the dress! Looked good in pictures and comfortable. It seemed to stretch throughout the night so size down if there's a option.

Color Makes It A Stand Out
The flame red color is really eye catching. I am fair with neutral undertones and platinum hair and this color was very flattering on me. I think it would also look great for girls with a tan and girls of color. I am 5'7", 35/26/37 and the length was perfect, but it did run large. I am typically a 4-6 depending on the designer and I should have gone with the 2. I liked that it wasn't too clingy but there was a bit of bunching around the lower stomach due to the extra material- I think it would have been more flattering in the next size down.

Great color!
This is one of my favorite rentals. The material is very stretchy and ribbed, so it hides any imperfections. I was worried that the 6 would be too small, but it felt a bit big actually. The color is amazing and vibrant. Only issue is the lining at the top kept coming out of the back. But it was amazing and I'll get it again!

Chose this dress for a September wedding on a vineyard
The fabric was stretchier than I thought it'd be! The 4 (backup size) fit but it was a bit too short so I went with 6. The dress is SUPER comfortable and I got tons of compliments on the design.
