Great color, awful material
I rented this for a fall wedding. The color was great, and was exactly what I expected. The fit was awkward. It runs a little weird, but in general it is just uncomfortable. The material is better for a drape than for a dress. It would not press, no matter what I tried, so it looked wrinkled from the moment I stepped out the door. I ordered a backup size, but when it arrived I noticed that the pleating was entirely different in the larger size--better, actually. In the smaller size the pleats were seen at the pleat, making them look more like flaps or panels. In the larger size the pleats were smoother and looked so much better--more playful. Customer service handled this issue with me separately. Overall I didn't feel that the dress was too short. I did wear a slip just in case, with a normal bra. Not awful but I certainly wouldn't rent this again. There are better red dresses out there.

It was a pretty color.
The dress is very simple and easy to wear. I would recommend this for a shower or a beach wedding. Just be careful in the wind. Also, if you are going to dance at a wedding don't wear this dress. You will burn up in it. The dress is true to size and cute but I probably won't rent it again.

The perfect race day dress!
I rented this dress to wear to The Preakness Stakes. It photographed really well and I got so many compliments! It was the perfect style for the "Turfside Terrace"! It was hot outside and the fabric didn't breathe too well, so that's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. Also, it was a little snug across the chest. I was nervous about the length, and it was a little shorter than I normally wear but added a little edge to an otherwise super conservative dress. I added a belt and necklace

Amazing!
I wore this dress to a formal and it was beautiful. The color was more orange-y than I expected, but I loved it. The fit was great too. And because the dress was fairly plain I could accessorize it however I wanted.

Great color and the large flared out skirt was perfect.
The fit was a little boxy so I added a patten leather belt. That gave me a nice waistline. I added a turquoise statement necklace as well because it's a bit plain. I liked the fabric because is helps it keep its shape but did wrinkle a bit throughout the day.

Comfortable fit but pleats were a mess
Its a loose fitting 6 but even after ironing twice I couldnt straighten out the pleats in the dress, some were twisted either from shipping or overuse of this dress.

Great fit
I loved how this dress fit. I also loved the color. The only thing I didn't like about this dress was the fabric. The dress arrived a bit wrinkled in places and I was unable to get the wrinkles out despite my best efforts. It became more wrinkled as the night went on. Nonetheless, I received many compliments on the dress! I enjoyed wearing it but I won't be renting it again.

I absolutely LOVED this dress! It was perfect for my first RTR rental! I wish I could wear it again
This dress fits like a GLOVE! It runs very true to size, and is great for a small waist. It was perfect for the rehearsal dinner that I went to because it's not too fancy, and it looks very classy. The color is brighter in person as well. I paired it with a statement necklace, to give it the perfect pop! I did get the dress steamed because it arrived slightly wrinkled, but it stayed beautiful all night long.

My husband loved it!
The dress fit perfectly. Probably not a good choice if you're larger than a b cup, it was tight in the chest. It was a nice dress but didn't have the wow factor I wanted, although my husband loved how short it was!

I loved the dress overall but when I received it in the mail, it came pretty wrinkled.
I thought the fit was slightly large but I belted it and it was ok. I am 5'8" and I thought it was a little short. It didn't appear short but I felt exposed if I breeze came by (pictures at outdoor wedding) and dancing I felt like I had to be careful to remain "ladylike" but I liked the way the skirt moved and I thought it was flattering (I wore flats). I think the dress needs a necklace and overall accessorizing to fully bring it to standout to its fullest.

I felt very fashionable
I when I tried the dress on for the first time, I didn't like it and I didn't feel very good in it. The dress felt bigger on me than I wanted it to, but It was a lot better as soon as I threw on the belt. On the bright side, I loved how comfortable this dress was! I had a super fun night dancing in it and I felt very upscale despite the slight misfit.

Rented the wrong size and ended up not wearing. Great color and Festival dress but the 38 was way too short on me!

Perfect pop of color for my engagement shoot!
I loved this dress! It was the perfect amount of classiness and flair for the architectural setting of my engagement shoot. Only complaint would be that the fabric is quite stiff/structured- which sort of came across as boxy for someone without many curves

Great color, the fit/flare of the skirt is so cute. I got compliments on it all night
A little tight on the chest area so consider going up a size because of that. Other than that absolutely loved it

I did not wear this dress.
This dress fit large and I didn't think it was flattering for my shape. I think it would fit/look better on pear shape women. The color is beautiful.

I couldn't wear either of the sizes I rented as they were both too large.
The bust and waste line fit large. The dress would have been perfect for the occasion but since it has a high neckline and is very structured it really looked like it didn't fit. Every time i moved it would ride up on my neck and shoulders. Runs large.

Just ok.
This dress was just ok. I am 5'5'' with an athletic build and a 36C so a size 10 is usually a good fit for me. This ran large - it had extra room at the waist, which most of us want to have the most fitted part of the dress as its the most flattering. The material of the dress is more like a raincoat material than a dress material. I do think if it fit correctly it would definitely be a cute style. With the two size options, I would go a size down and a true size when ordering.

I wore this for my engagement photo shoot and the dress was perfect! Beautiful and comfortable.
The fit was perfect, a little wiggle room, which I appreciate as I do not like being corseted into a dress. Nice length and I am 5'3", very figure flattering.

Great color, mediocre fit
The front of the dress has a weird inner fold rather than a regular pleat, and the bust wasn't particularly flattering. I'm busty, and though the dress wasn't too tight, it somehow made me look flat. I won't be wearing it.

Fun and pretty dress!
I wore this dress for a rehearsal dinner in NYC. The bodice is fitted and hits right around your natural waist. The skirt is fun, flares out a little and wasn't too short on me for being around 5'7. The material is comfortable yet elegant. This is must rent!
