Gorgeous and timeless.
This dress was absolutely gorgeous, but I have a long torso and the waist fell a little too high (the ONLY reason for the 4 star rating). Otherwise, this dress would have been an absolute winner. I'm larger busted and was concerned that the low neckline would be a little too "edgy" but not the case at all. And the train on the back...no words to describe how beautiful. This was a gorgeous dress, just not quite right for my body type. I am technically about 5'8 1/2" and the length was great with 2.0 to 3.0 inch heels.

Great dress, received tons of compliments
Fits snug around hips and thighs, too big around waist if you are curvy

Beautiful, glamorous and sexy all in one!
I got so many compliments on this dress, even from complete strangers who would approach me throughout the night. The only complaint I would have is the fit. I ordered a 2R (with a 4R as a backup), which fit wonderfully in the hips. The upper area was a bit loose though, which surprised me because I am a 32D. I have a fairly petite hourglass shape, but I wish the torso would have been more form-fitting. That being said though, if I had ordered the 0R, I think the hips would have been too tight.

Red Glam
I wore this dress for a black tie affair in NYC. I absolutely LOVED the dress!! The color, style and fit were all perfect. I felt like the "belle of the ball" all night long...receiving compliment after compliment on how beautiful I looked, how amazing the gown was and how wonderfully it fit! So glad RtR is an option for events when you want to look fabulous! The top of the dress is cut sorta low, so since I'm not busty (C cup), I needed a push-up bra to fill in the dress. Also, I was surprised that the dress actually has somewhat of a small train in the back. It's not visible from my photo or others that I saw online. But it's there, so you will have to take care to select the perfect heel height -- one tall enough to keep the train from dragging all over town, but also short enough to not show your entire foot in the front. My heel was 3". I will use RtR every time I need a gown because of the depth of selection and beautiful gowns.

Very structured, glamorous gown. Not easy to move in.
Dress is beautiful. Fit my figure well, although my 34D chest still left a little room up top on the 8. My sense is that the 6 would have been a perfect fit up top, but not sure if I could have zipped it up. This is not the dress to wear for an evening of dancing - it's hard to move in, but for a standing cocktail reception followed by a sit down dinner it fit the bill.

Perfect classy red dress!
I got so many compliments wearing this beautiful dress!! Just the right amount of long train and material was fabulous. However- it is extremely low..and chest area was extremely loose on me. Fashion tape did not work so I had to pin the top and did not look the best. Dress was stunning overall and you should not have a problem with the chest area if you have a larger chest.

Fit at the bottom but the top way to big
If you are thicker at the bottom and smaller at the top it just doesn't work. The material is beautiful and I loved the dress wish it would have worked

Dancing Lady emoji
After my first choice showed up in European sizes (two sizes too small), I flipped! I quickly chose this red number and it was overnighted. What a blessing in disguise. I felt like a million bucks. This dress is comfortable, true to size and rich fabric. It's a little long in back so I did have to carry the train often. I felt like the "red dress dancing emoji" come to life. ;)

Perfect!
I wore this for the formal awards night for my company. I felt like a princess and received so many compliments. Very firm fitting and runs small. I'm 5'8" and was the perfect length.

Inaugural ball!
Fabulous dress! I felt very regal in it. Fit like a glove! I normally wear a 6 and ordered a 6L. I'm only 5'5" so it was really long and I had to wear really tall heels. I would have ordered a 6R but it wasn't available. But even being long, with the heels it was perfect. The train is a little long, so you have to watch it when walking, etc. It is very low cut and I tried 3 different types of bras/shapers and none of them worked so I went bare, but I still felt totally comfortable and had no issues (I'm a 36D). I wore it with the crislu graduated crystal necklace and the slate and willow drop earrings. I felt beautiful and got numerous compliments!

Rented for formal winter wedding. Gorgeous dress....received a ton of compliments.
After getting back to our hotel room, we were unable to get the zipper down. TOTALLY STUCK! We finally had to bust it, as it just wasn't going to budge. Called RTR the next morning to let them know. Not only did they not charge me anything additional, they gave me 15% off my next rental for the inconvenience! Excellent customer service. Kudos to RTR!!

Christmas to Remember
This dress was absolutely perfect for our family formal Christmas party! The fit was great, the fabric was so rich. I rented the Long so the train would fall perfectly. I would rent this dress again!

Too tight in hips, but beautiful gown
Shows a good deal of cleavage and fits well, if a little on the small side, but the hips were too tight for me to walk comfortably (and I don't have big hips). I think the mermaid silhouette is tapered just a touch too long, but it might have been fine in the next size up.

Don't size up
At the recommendation of other reviewers I sized up and it was far too large. I was swimming in the dress and had extra inches of fabric all over (hips, chest, waist). The dress was beautiful and well tailored I just wish I had stuck to my regular size.

Very beautiful
A high quality dress! I did have to do some readjusting to my bust area because it is so low cut and I wanted to have that nice celebrity cleavage. A bit limiting when you dance in the knee area but that was to be expected since it is a mermaid cut. Overall felt very special in this dress!

The dress was so beautiful if made the event unforgetable.
The dress fit great! It was slightly wrinkle, however, it was relatively easy to iron. The dress is not for a heavy chested person. I am D cup and needed double stick tape. I also wore a U bra because the dress is low cut. I received many compliments and loved the look.

You look lovely in the gown. To confirm, do you normally wear a 6 and wore a TTS 6 in this? The stylist review is so adamant that the dress runs very small, but the other reviews don't seem to agree...

Perfect for a formal Christmas party!
I LOVE this dress. I am 5'2" & with heels, the length is perfect! (I ordered the Regular.) I LOVE the little train in the back! It is VERY low cut so LOTS of fashion taste and stick on bra forms will be used! Plan to wear it with a rhinestone statement necklace!!!

The dress is stunning; I felt like I was on the red carpet.
I am 5ft 1in about 135lbs. The dress I'm in is a 4R. I normally wear petite so it was slightly longer than I would have liked. The dress I originally ordered was a 4P and was unavailable for shipping due to whatever reason. This was my next choice out of the available options. I couldn't have been more satisfied honestly. This is a fabulous dress!

Stylist Review
Felt like a princess in this gown! The color is gorgeous and the neckline is so elegant. You can't wear a standard bra - definitely NuBra or no bra. This runs very small though. Definitely go up a size, especially if you're curvy or have wider hips. The gown wasn't even sitting right in the photo - it was a little too low on the hips but that's all it could go! I couldn't even sit. There's zero stretch in the fabric so I can't say it enough - go up a size!
