this dress is FIRE

Just rented this for a friend's wedding in Mexico...Can't wait to wear it! I'm a 32D/34C and was worried about the cut of the top of the dress, but it's sits well without revealing too much. I want this dress in my life forever.

Bold, Chic Dress

Runs small! Order one size up. Form fitting. But very comfortable. The off the shoulder makes this dress super flattering. Highly recommend!

ALL EYES ON THIS DRESS!

This dress runs a tiny bit snug, but was comfortable. I got compliments the entire night and felt like a star. Considering buying this fun piece! It feels well made and fancy for a night out.

Pretty red dress!

This is super flattering and a beautiful color and fit! It runs a little small in the hips if you are more curvy I would size up.

The dress was perfect for an April wedding in California. Comfortable and elegant!

The dress does run small in the waist area so I would size up. However if you do choose to size up, note that the dress will then be a more of a maxi dress than a midi dress. Regardless, perfect dress for a wedding you want to look elegant at but also be comfortable at while dancing.

Runs so small!!

I got the size 6 thinking it would fit me I'm usually a size small or 4. Could not even get the size 6 to zip up at all. This dress runs so small! You literally have to size up 2 sizes!

Radiant in Red

I got lots of compliments in this dress. I read the previous reviews sized up. It's narrow in the waist and a little form fitting in the wait area too but it fit my hourglass body well. It's perfect for a summer wedding !

Slightly small but still wearable, beautiful!

It's a beautiful classic red. I think it would be nice on most skin tones. It's slightly small compared to other size 4 dresses from this brand, but not unwearable. Just a little more snug than typical. I am petite though and have extra small arms/waist. If you are normally size 4 but have a more athletic/curvy build I would definitely size up. And if you have bigger boobs be aware that this dress will definitely squeeze them. I am a 30DD and this dress was very snug in the chest area (lots of cleavage) I like that look but you may not. Also this is a ankle length dress on my height (5'3") just be aware. It's not midi. I wore this in Hawaii and got lots of compliments. My fiancΓ© loved it.

Wonderful!

I'm normally a 4/6 in dresses and based on the prior reviews ordered both a 6 and an 8. Ended up going with the 8 as it runs pretty tight across the chest. Size up!

Beautiful Dress

This dress was beautiful. I loved the color and the fabric. I only wish RTR carried the petite version of this dress since it's meant to be a midi dress and at 5'2 that wasn't the case for me. However for the setting and occasion the length still worked and I got many compliments.

Stunning dress, comfortable and classy

Loved this dress. Reformation sizes do run smaller than most, I'm usually in between a 0 and 2 and I ordered a 4R which fit perfectly. Super comfy and flattering dress. Sleeves stayed in place, absolutely no adjusting necessary. Would definitely recommend

Great dress but so small

Love the dress, but ran extremely small. I sized up but it wasn't enough. You need to go 2 sizes up. If you have any self consciousness about the lower belly area- not the best choice.

Beautiful dress

Gorgeous dress that fit wonderfully. I am normally a size 6 but had to size up to an 8. If you have a larger/broader chest and shoulders, definitely size up. If you have a larger bum, also size up. Otherwise it was great.

Fit well, and SO flattering

My only con was I wasn't expecting how thin it was. There is no ribbing in the waist area. But it wasn't see through and fit very well, all I needed was sticky boobs :)

stunner in red

The color is beautiful! Fit is snug through stomach and hips, but falls just right, recommend spanx to smooth everything because light fabric. It has a beautiful flow. Good coverage for busty people, if comfortable with cleavage.

Showstopper for Couples Photoshoot

As many of the other reviews mentioned, the dress runs small. I'm usually an 8, and the 10 was TIGHT. I wish I would have done a 10, with my backup size being the 12 (especially after gaining a few extra pounds on vacation). Also be aware that the zipper gets stuck. That being said, all of that doesn't take away from the beauty of this dress. It hugged my curves wonderfully. It's a crepe material so it was light enough for summer pictures outside and was comfortable over an evening of moving around a lot. You could definitely dress it up or down. All in all, I loved it and the color really popped in photos!

Perfect for a summer wedding!

I'm usually a size 0 or 2 but based on other reviews decided to rent a 2 and 4. The size 2 fit me perfectly! It was tight and fitted but still allowed room to sit and dance at a wedding. I have a small chest so I had to wear it with the sleeves up but it was still comfortable that way.

This dress was so fun and perfect for a special event/party!

The only caution is the fit - I typically wear a size 4/6 in Reformation dresses, and in this dress, even the 8 was tight. Just size up 1 or 2 sizes and you'll be good!

This dress fit perfectly, I normally wear a 4 in Reformation but based on reviews I sized up to a 6 and it was perfect (thanks everyone who reviewed before me!). The style, fit and color were super flattering and I loved wearing this dress :)

Beautiful color, fun dress.

This is a bold and bright dress that is great for a spring/summer wedding -- I got tons of compliments. It's tight from the waist up and loose on the bottom, so keep that in mind with sizing (I would size up for a backup). Would rent this one again.

Veryyyyy tiny

I usually wear a size 4 and i ordered the size 8 based on others reviews. Even the 8 was too small. They only had it available in that size so there was no additional size they could send me. Fortunately, RTR gave me a credit to my account since I couldn't wear the dress to my event. Beautiful dress, just size up at least 2 sizes. Also may not be the best dress for those of us with decent sized boobs.....

Great dress for formal events

This dress RUNS SO SMALL. I'm so glad that I read reviews before ordering. I'm normally a 4/6, but ended up comfortably wearing the 8R in this one. If you have a bigger bust I'd actually recommend going even bigger. It was too small to wear a bra with (as you can see, haha) but that didn't matter much to me. The color was stunning, and I got a lot of compliments! Felt like the dancing emoji.

Outdoor spring wedding

This dress is amazing. If I thought I had more occasions to wear blazing red cocktail attire, I'd buy it immediately. It's light but sturdy fabric, and stays up very well despite being an off the shoulder dress. I'm 5'10, 140 pounds, with a small waist and semi curvy hips for a tall woman, and it fit perfectly except for running small. Order 1 size up from your regular dress size. I received compliments all night, including phone calls from people who just saw pictures of the wedding. Definitely rent it!

Runs SO Small

I've done RTR six times now, and I've never had a problem; I'm ALWAYS a 4 or a 6. Always. And the reviews of this dress said mostly true to size, so I got my usual 4 and 6. ...Well, the 6 wouldn't even come CLOSE to zipping. It was crazy. Tight AF and so small. Apparently Reformation runs super small. I think an 8 would have fit, but I'm not positive, because it was out of stock by that point. Fortunately, I got a different RTR dress as a replacement that worked (and it was a 4, so...confusing).

Runs very small!

I really wanted to love this dress, but it runs very small, I'm typically a 0 or 2, and I would size up to a 4 or 6 in this. I'm 5'4" 123lbs. Also, the sleeves were much smaller and didn't cover the arm as pictured, but perhaps a good steam would have helped.

Fun and sassy!

After reading other reviews I was skeptical that this dress would be too tight. I was able to order my true size and one size up, and I ended up wearing the true size! Although it was a little more form-fitting than I normally wear, my true size was significantly shorter in length and way more flattering than the size up. This dress was gorgeous and I would wear it again!

This dress was stunning!

Fit like a dream and hugged in all the right spots without being suffocating in any way. I was able to comfortably sit, eat a bunch of good food, and seriously dance the night away without feeling restricted. Like others said: this dress does run small. I am normally a size 4 in most brands, including Reformation, but a 6 fit perfectly in this dress. An 8 would have worked too but was a bit too flowy and loose ok the top for me. Shapewear definitely helped smooth the tummy as the fabric is not too forgiving in that area. Overall I loved this dress!!

Got so many compliments!

Based on other reviews, ordered 4, 6, and 8; my usual size in most other brands is a 4. Ended up wearing the 8 because the 4 definitely wasn't going to zip all the way and 6, although it fit well and was flattering, did not leave enough room for me to bloat from wedding food lol. The sleeves did start to bother me a little early into the night; the sleeves are elastic which is the only thing keeping the dress up (although I am a 34B). I can be a little self-conscious about my stomach and felt okay in this. For reference, I am 5'6" and about 130 lbs.

Super flattering, gorgeous dress

I just wrote a whole thing and it got deleted... but I'm willing to write again because I LOVED THIS DRESS. I felt like a princess... and it wasn't even my night. I was a bridesmaid and I've never received as many compliments as I did when I wore this dress. I have an hourglass figure and the size 8 fit better on top, but the 10 fit better on the bottom. I ended up wearing the size 10 and using fashion tape to keep it in place up top. I loved this dress so much that I'm even considering taking the plunge to purchase it. I cannot recommend this dress enough!
