This dress is fabulously flattering. However, as the previous reviewer notes, it does run quite small. I typically wear a 2-4 and had to go with the Medium in this style (while I managed to squeeze myself into the Small, it was very constraining). The lack of a hook-and-eye clasp at the top of the zipper definitely makes it that much more difficult to get on. That said, if you can make it work, it's worth the headache. The fit is incredible--the dress lengthens and slims, and the layering/ruching hides a multitude of sins. I can't remember the last time I got so many compliments on a dress.

True to the other reviews, this dress runs small. I typically wear a size two but wear a 34C/D. It was definitely tricky to zip (I had to have help!) BUT once it was on this dress was AMAZING. I wore it to a work cocktail party and felt like a million bucks. Just order size accordingly.

I'm 5'3, 120 pounds and 34B and the medium fit me best. The dress hit me right at the knee. It was a little big in the bust but the body tape that comes with the rental and a sticky silicon bra worked fine. Everyone loved the dress. Its also a vibrant (but not too bright) red color.

The dress was perfect. However, thank God I ordered both XS and S. I have tiny waist but XS was the smallest dress I have ever seen. S looked perfect. I got a lot of compliments on the it. Thanks!

Runs very small. Order a size or 2 larger. It is gorgeous on, however, and holds your tummy like a corset.

I am a size 4/6 and I could not even zip the Medium! It's also xmas red. It looks more orangy in the photo. It also is very side boob revealing. Beautiful dress just didn't work for me.

This dress was a HIT at my company holiday party. It does run small, so order your size and one larger vs one smaller. And when you get the right size, it fits like a glove with out feeling tight or restricting. I needed help to zip it up, but once inside I could breathe, move, dance, whatever. Also, the color is NOT orange/salmon the way it looks on the site. It's a true red, which was perfect for Christmas, but not what I expected, so be aware of that. Overall, I was 100% satisfied with the dress. It looked and felt great. The lining is genius. Sucks you right in and helps the dress stay put while you move around. Rent it.

Simply a beautiful dress. The fit is tight, so order up. I am a size 4, with a small chest and hips. I got a small and a medium and the medium fit, but not without a struggle! Looks great on, the medium is the correct size for an athletic size 4, it just takes a bit to get on. Once it's on, your golden. Color is red.

I was really excited when I rented this dress and was going to wear it to the wedding however it was too small around my ribs and stomach and was too big around my chest area and didn't love the black zipper at the side seam. I normally wear a XS or a zero and the size small was insanely tight on me. I couldn't even attempt to get the XS on but the Small took me about a half hour just to zip up. Once it was zipped up it was comfortable because the fabric has stretch in it but the chest area was slightly big and not super flattering. I have a small bust (A/B cup) but the pleating just did something weird that didn't look that great. It's a shame because I loved the color and really wanted to wear a red dress and loved the style so much. I wish it came in a more dressier fabric. The fabric isn't the softest as I was expecting. If you do get this dress get 2 sizes up. Overall it is OK. I would also recommend this for someone taller. It hit just at my knee but would have probably looked better if I was a little bit taller. Didn't end up going with this dress...

Amazing dress - unfortunately I didn't get to wear it - I probably could have squeezed into the M, but it would have been tight (M was unexpectedly unavaialable due to damage) -will definitely rent this one again, but in a Large (for comparison the Badgley Mischka size 2 was loose on me)

Absolutely STUNNING dress IF you can actually get into it... :) I am usually an easy size 6 - it took my husband a decent amount of effort to zip me into the Large. Based on the reviews I ordered a backup dress to be safe. However, once this dress is on, it does have a bit of stretch so it is comfortable and SO flattering. Also do note that the color is red which isn't clear from the photo.

Beautiful dress--despite the peep show
I ordered this dress in a small, I'm normally a size 2 and it took two people to get it zipped up! While the dress was beautiful and I received TONS of compliments, in the middle of dancing during a family wedding I noticed that the zipper had started to come unzipped. This is likely because there is no clasp. Overall the dress is beautiful and very flattering but order a size up!

This is a great dress but unfortunately I couldn't wear it because the medium was too small. I'm normally a 4 or 6 with a small waist & I couldn't even zip it past my waist. Will try this again sometime in a large, because it's a beautiful dress.

I wore this dress to the Ohio Valley Regional Emmy Awards and won! I received so many compliments on this dress. In a sea of black, I stood out in red. I love this dress!
I ordered a small and medium in this dress, because the large wasn't in stock. I was nervous because I had read previous reviews and was worried even the medium wouldn't fit. The material is stretchy and thicker so it's easy to fit in, once you get it zippd up. It's definitely a two person effort to zip up the dress! Have a friend help you! I wore black-themed jewelry. I have shoes exactly like the ones the model is wearing and they looked awesome. I also tried on the dress with black platform pumps and those looked good as well. It's a great dress!

Wowing my guests before I even had the wedding dress on!
Yes, this dress definitely runs small, I'm 5'10", 150lbs and needed help zipping into the Large, but it looked fabulous once on! The color is definitely more bright red and not coral as it appears in the pictures. The dress is very flattering and made of a neoprene material almost like a wetsuit, so it holds in any unflattering rolls. I wore this to my Dress Rehearsal dinner and received a ton of compliments. As others have mentioned, it would benefit from an eye hook, so make sure you have help getting into it. I am full chested and had to reposition my right breast occasionaly or it would peak, but not fall out the side. Wearing a bra isn't really an option, but not needed either as the material holds everything in the right place.

It turns out this dress is really not for me. It was so super tight (even I couldn't get into the 0, which is what I usually am). Also the color is less orange/ coral and more red... which was just a little too attention seeking for me. If you want to steal the spotlight, this is your dress. If not, go for something else.

I loved this dress, and my boyfriend did too!
The dress was truly flattering and I got a ton of compliments! It definitely runs small though. I'm usually a size 2-4 and I had to wear the medium. It also took a team of people to get the zipper up because there's no hook at the top ... do not plan to get ready for your event alone! Otherwise, I loved this dress and would totally recommend it to anyone going for a sexy yet sophisticated look!

Worth the squeeze!!
This dress definitely runs snug, however, once it is on, you feel like Jessica Rabbit. The material sucks you right in and is a gorgeous bold color. It was perfect for the rehearsal dinner I wore it to, probably better for events where you are not dancing a ton, though there is stretch in the material. I am tall and it hit just above my knee so it might be long for petite gals. Love love love...

I rented this dress as my second choice and it ended up being killer! I am very petite but have a 18month old so I still have a tiny pooch when I relax... This dress sucked me right in and was comfortable and flattered all areas! I LOVE this dress and am now looking at renting the blue one! It serves as spanks and again , very flattering! My husband also loved it!

Pretty dress but WAY TOO SMALL
I ordered this dress and didn't even end up wearing it. It was so small, I could barely zip it up. I would have been able to wear it, but not comfortably. I always wear either an XS or a size 0. I'm very tiny, especially up top. I read the reviews about how this dress runs small, so I went up a size from an XS to an S. Even with an increase in size, I could barely zip it up. Shame too, because it is beautiful with very high quality fabric. So for anyone interested in renting this one, you should probably go up two sizes. I wouldn't even say "unless you are a stick figure, go up two sizes" because I am someone who has frequently been labeled one! This is in no way RTR's fault. I don't understand why designers do this. Also, even when it was on, I felt that the shoulder strap was very big and covered almost all of my chest and collarbone. It was a little overwhelming. I'm not trying to knock the dress, because I really did want to wear it. It's just made very, very small. But it is still a beautiful dress. Also, the color is not like this picture. It's a very bright red, whereas this picture depicts it as an orange-red. Take a look at some of the pictures submitted by RTR users for a more accurate look.

Same thing happened to me! I couldn't believe it!!!! I wanted to wear this dress soooo bad:( But the xs and s were so uncomfortable and gave me back fat!!! So unflattering! Looking forward to renting the medium and large!!!! BTW I'm 4'11 and 109 lbs!

hot hot hot
this dress is smokin'! it's true what others have said, it runs super small, but once you get it zipped up, this dress is so sexy and flattering. if i had a bigger bust i could have also had some side-boob action going, but alas, i don't and i didn't. but it was still hot. having said that, i can't imagine having a bigger bust with this dress, as it was pretty tight top to bottom (i'm 5'6 1/2", around 128lbs, with size 34A bust). LOVED this red dress.

This dress is incredible! Very very flattering! I have never gotten so many compliments from guys on a dress before. I will say it runs very small, I wear a 4-6 and I can't see the large fitting anyone much bigger than me.It is a tad long so I put a temporary hem in with an iron. It was great!

Everything!
I'm 5'9 140 pounds so I thought the medium would be big enough. I had to wear the large because this dress does run VERY SMALL! It is a beautiful dress though! The zipper tends to fall down on the side but aside from that it was perfect!

HOT DRESS!!
This dress is HOT! It runs VERY small. I wear a 0 and have never been to big for an XS dress (they are usually too big), but I almost couldn't zip the size S! But the dress is just SO flattering and well done. It is definitely more red than orange. Loved it!

This was a very flattering dress. It definitely runs small but I was able to make it work. There were some small pulls on the seams on the sides but nothing that was noticeable. Would rent again as a good go-to for holiday parties.

I did not originally choose this dress but I picked it after I had an issue with another dress. This dress is absolutely gorgeous. The color is definitely red & the dress does give you sideboob but that was one of the things that was so beautiful about the dress. I absolutely love this dress!

Runs really small :(
Unfortunately I wasn't able to wear this dress because it did not fit. The dress is beautiful and I was very upset, thank god I had a plan B. I ordered the XS without reading the reviews and there was like a good 5" of fabric missing for it to zip up. I usually wear a size 2 in dresses. I'm only 5'00" tall and 111 lbs. I would strongly recommend to order a size up.

I LOVE this dress!!
I originally rented it as a backup for a wedding I was going to- the small was a tight fit for me, and I usually wear a size 0 or an XS. I had to suck it in bigtime to get the zipper up, but it was still super-flattering. I'm renting it again for another wedding I have coming up.

Great dress. I got so many compliments when I wore this to a red & black themed fundraiser I worked!
Comfortable fit, and because of the draping over the bust I got away with not wearing a bra. I got a small and medium and opted with the small for a better fit in my waist.

I got this dress last minute because my original RTW rental was discontinued. It's a beautiful piece and my husband LOVED me in it. I got the small and medium and wore the medium. It runs SMALL so size up. The zipper is difficult and needed 2 people to help me in it!
