Oddly large
So disappointed! It's a beautiful, well-made dress, but it's a bit short (I'm 5'8") so you'd need to order a long if you want your ankles covered. Oddly, the waist in the back of the dress does not nip in like it should. On both dresses I tried, the waist was quite large and sagged in the back, making me look heavy from the side due to the extra fabric. My waist is a 28; hips are about 38, so not sure why the hour glass cut of the dress did not work. Be prepared if you order this dress to have a back up just in case!

Red dress let down
This dress wasn't comfortable, the shoulders were too tall, and it ran large. Ended up wearing my back up style.

A beautiful and comfortable dress with a minor challenge.
This dress is stunning! Walking around the room I really felt like a princess. The only reason I had to dock it 1 star is because of the challenge with the bust area. It's a pretty low dress and I didn't want to risk any embarrassing situations by going without a bra, however the whole night I had to constantly adjust and readjust it so my bra wasn't showing (and it was a low bra, too!). I used pins, tape, you name it, but the fabric was too slippery to hold to the tape and the pins were noticeable. Other than that distraction, I love the dress!

I felt so glamorous in this dress.
The chest was loose and had a lot of extra space but my breasts did not fall out at all. The skirt was very tight, however.

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.

The color was rich and material felt amazing.
It was a bit hard to breathe. There wasnt a size up besides the 12...which i wear but my bust is more a 14. I had a wardrobe malfunction in the bust department...and despite the photo...if it weren't for a fellow sister in the ladies room who had spare safety-pins...it would have been a disaster. I used double sided tape...but with a 38-40D...I need more than just "tape". Lol. Thank you RTR for being my first purchase...I will rent again in a heart beat.

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.

not for me
Should have ordered the 6 but I thought some reviews said it ran small. And it may have still been too big in the waist. I have a tiny waist compared to my hips/chest, so not a great dress for me. beautiful dress though.

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.

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!

I rented this dress for my black tie birthday party. It was perfect.
I originally ordered the sizes 2 and 4 and realized I needed a zero. They were able to overnight it to me. The dress is very form fitting. It has a flattering shape and the natural is a bit heavier so it smoothed out the lumps that would have otherwise been visible. I'm about 5'3 and I wore 3 inch heels. It swept the floor beautifully. My favorite part is the back of the dress. The dip where the zipper meets was flattering which was fantastic because I have a broader back. I'm a 32dd and I found that when I sat down there was a small gap between myself and the dress. Double side tape fixed that. I did have to pick the dress up at the bottom to walk( something I loved) but if you don't care for that the pleating at the bottom of the dress in the back may be an issue. Overall I felt amazing. Everyone loved it. It was sexy yet still classic. Was my first rental but it won't be my last.

My daughter is a youth ambassador with JDRF Delaware and I wore this to their annual Hope Ball.
I have never heard the word "stunning" more in my life. I received so many compliments. This was my back up to my back up dress. R2R emailed me explaining the back up had come back damaged but they would expedite a new dress by 12:00pm that day and it worked out. I am so impressed by their speedy customer service.

❤️❤️ Stunning RED! ❤️❤️
This dress is stunning! I guess I'm in between sizes because the 12 was a bit big and the 10 felt too snug. I went with the larger one as I wanted to be able to relax and not feel too constricted. The neckline was low and a special low cut bra was necessary. I received compliments all night, even from complete strangers, about how gorgeous this dress was. The length was perfect except in the back there was a train that was constantly stepped on by people. I had to hold up the dress to avoid people stepping on it in the bust ballroom. Prepare to steam out wrinkles from the shipping.

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.

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.

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. ;)

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!!

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!!!
