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!!!

Because I'm a pear shape the top was too big. Returned without wearing.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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. ;)

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

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.

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.

Felt like a princess

I wore this to my high school prom and I felt like a princess! I received so many compliments. It was modest and regal looking. The length was perfect ( I ordered the long, and wore 3 inch heels). The small train at the back is an extra special touch.

Dress fit perfectly, so many compliments all night long and even more on social media afterwards!

For me, this dress fit like a glove. I didn't need a bra, and the length was perfect. It was very warm under all that silk. It was difficult to walk up and down stairs. The back is a little longer, which makes it beautiful, but dancing was difficult. Every time I stepped backwards, I stepped on my dress. But I would definitely rent it again.i loved it!

Wonderful gown!

I rented this gown for a work Gala and it received many compliments. I originally rented the 12L but it wasn't returned on time so I wore the 12R (the 10 fit but I wouldn't have been able to eat or sit) and I can't say enough great things about it. The gown was gorgeous in person, well made, and felt like I had room to move. Bonus: I could wear a bra! A previous renter pinned the cleavage so it wasn't as deep as originally made, there was still plenty on display.

Far too short

Beautiful dress, way to short. I ordered with hopes it would be long enough for me, I'm 5'11", and it was 3 inches too short. Not in a good way, that could be pulled off. Gorgeous dress besides this.

It was fairly large in the chest area and gaped around the arms. The waist was larger than other size 6's but would have been wearable if not for the chest area being so big. Beautiful color and fabric weight.

Felt like the Belle of the ball. Never have i received so many compliments.

Hugs curves well. Comfortable in shoulders, and arms. 36D. Wore a size 10, 5'8. Usually a 8/10. True to size, however it was a snug to zip up around rib cage. Beautiful color, loads of compliments. Rent this dress!

I absolutely LOVED this dress!! I wore it to a Heart Ball. You definitely need to have boobs to fill this out. Im petite but curvy. It was perfect. I got so many comimemts! When someone at the end of the night came up to me and said, your dress is my absolute favorite of the evening, I knew I had made such a great selection with RTR!!

Didn't wear

It's a gorgeous dress but when I tried it on in the store it was a little tight in the hips and a little loose in the chest. Just didn't quite fit right, so I sent it back. I ordered a 10R because I'm between an 8 and a 10 right now and other reviewers had mentioned a tightness in the hips so I decided to go up a size. What I really needed was an 8 up top and a 12 on the bottom.

The "Red Dress"!

Overall odd on my Body. Top was loose, but bottom was tight. Hard to sit. Cut very low, and at 5'10", the long was still short. I had to wear flats. I could, however, wear a regular bra. Everyone complimented it!

Showstopper

Wore this dress to a wedding and everyone was complimenting me. I am curvy and it was form fitting. My breasts were a bit too large and I had to pin the dress, but all worth it. Color and material is so stunning in person. If you want to wow people this is the dress!

No stretch, hard to get on

For a hourglass shaped woman, I thought this dress would be great, but I had a lot of trouble getting this over my hips. The dress has no stretch and wasn't all that flattering. I'm 5'7 and would have needed to the king for it to look right. Went with another one of my options from my order. The color is beautiful and would be great for a holiday party!

Holiday party

So many compliments! If you have a juicy booty like me, you may find it difficult to sit, get in and out of a car challenging, and bending over. I also needed tape for the shoulders to keep from flashing my colleagues and the execs. Didn't want to be remembered that way! And don't let your boo boo walk behind you as the dress has a train.

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.

Not a good fit!

As much as I loved how regal this dress feels, it just didn't fit well. The bust area didn't seem to lay right. It ran quite big in the hips and legs. Not overly long either.
