Best concert ever!
I wore this to a concert. Love love it! Has zippers on the arms, the lower bottom to creat a slit, and then to zip up. The back is sexy and elegant. I was able to wear a bra with it too! The material is not too think and very high quality. Everything was perfect. I wanted to keep it. Very comfortable and I was able to dance and move around all night.

I loved the color of this dress and it's made out of a great fabric that sucks everything in!
The dress run pretty true to size, but it's cut wide at the hips so I went down a size.

The numerous compliments!
Loved the fit of this dress. I'm definitely glad I sized down. I usually wear a size four, but after reading other reviews/seeing photos, I didn't want to encounter the bunchiness in the waist and sleeves and so opted for the two. It was perfect. Although I am five 3, the length of the dress hit me perfectly, especially for a wedding occasion. I felt both classy and sexy, and was complimented on my outfit more times than I can count. My brother (the groom) really loved it, and that made the evening even more special. I paired the dress with a subtle red lip and red clutch. I broke up the red with teal platform peep toe heels, and definitely got compliments on the unusual pairing. I also did a red lip, and it went together beautifully. The dress is knit material, so if you're trying to wear this in the warmer months, it may be too hot for you. It was perfect for this past weekend, and I didn't need to wear a coat the whole day!

Great Valentine's Day dress!
The nice thick material is great at hiding imperfections. This is definitely a fall/winter dress because the material is thick and it can get pretty warm! There are hidden zippers in the arms and the bottom of the skirt which makes it a lot easier to get into because it's very form fitting! It's a very sexy dress without trying too hard (or freezing your butt off in the cold).

Simple, yet elegant!
I rented this dress for an awards banquet at a conference, and it was perfect! When it arrived, I thought it looked a little plain, but when I put it on, I loved it. I got it both in both a size 6 and 8. Both fit well, but I felt a little more comfortable in the size 8. It is a snug fit, so if you rent it, you definitely want to get your size and then a size larger. It's very thick so keep in mind where your event is and what you'll be doing. I loved the scoop back detail. I got a ton of compliments, and I felt amazing. I would not recommend this dress for women who are self conscious about their midsection.

Va Va Voom
The dress was gorgeous and I received a lot of compliments for it. The material is very thick so be warned. I had selected to get the size 6 and an 8 since it looks so form fitting. The body of both dresses seemed equally snug but I opted for the 6 because it fit a little better on my arms. I also liked the small details that I didn't notice in the pictures before renting, like the zippered slit and sleeves.

Cool seamless material although fit was not right
I think I am between sizes because the size 2 was too long for my petite frame, and the size 0 was way too tight. There is no way that I would have been able to dance in that dress. The neckline was restricting, and in my opinion too high. I thought the dress was trendy, but after I put it on, it looked like something a governor's wife would wear. Not for me.

Red Hot!
This was a great, sexy dress! It is made of a wonderful fabric that seems to just hold everything in place. However, I feel it runs small. I know it is supposed to be tight, but I would have preferred just 1" more on the hips. Most reviews said it ran true to size, so I ordered the 6 and 8. I had to wear the 8, the 6 would not fit. I am hourglass, and I think this dress is probably best for someone with a slightly straighter figure. Overall though I really did like it and had a great NYE!

Hot and Spicy!
Smokin hot dress with fantastic color. Long sleeves even out the look and keep it classy. This dress runs small. I tend to be a 0 or XS in most RTR dresses and went with the 2 in this dress. This dress is tight all the way through. If the belly is your problem area you need to go w/ a different dress. I loved this dress and received compliments all night, was warm due to sleeves and comfortable.

I felt like the "Lady in Red"...@ a beautiful wedding. The color was right for the festive event!
The dress was a snug fit however it silhouetted my all my curves in a sophisticated way. Whatever your size is, I suggest you order your true size and take advantage of the extra order of a size and order one size up, it has spandex material built in the lining. Nice thick material for a fall/winter event. The sleeves does have inside zippers which were not stated and slightly longer. I love the dress and the classy look it had. I never wore red before, but I felt amazing in this dress. I highly suggest to wear a bold center piece statement for an accessory.

LOVED this dress - heavier material than one might assume from the picture -with plenty stretch/give
Fits like a sausage wrapper, but somehow manages to pull off classy/elegant. I'll typically wear a 4, but there's no way I would have been able to squeeze into it - glad I had the 6. I loved wearing it!!! Only small caveat was that my bra strap kept showing in the back - the dip is right at the bra line...

Not bad.
Ran a bit small/snug for my taste and size. I'm a pretty solid 6, some brands 8, and the 8 was a little too form fitting. Dress was just ok, nothing spectacular.

Sooo sexy!
This dress was such a head turner, rendering my boyfriend speechless! I originally ordered this dress and another for a wedding and rehearsal dinner. I ultimately chose this dress for the dinner because it is a little constricting and a little too warm if you plan to do a lot of dancing (as I did!) The dress came just below my knees and did not require me to pull it down or adjust it during dinner. I'm a pretty true to size 8, but the 10 was the only size RTR had when I ordered - boy, am I glad I didn't get a smaller one! I'd say it runs ever so slightly small. (Although keep in mind that I'm a 34DDD, and so I need a little more room up top anyway.) This dress is perfect for curvy figures. I wish it had been a bit more fitted in the waist, but it looked fantastic anyway. The material is quite thick, so this is better for a cool weather event where you won't need to do any activity. There are zippers on the forearm part of the sleeve and in the back of the skirt, allowing you to adjust the slit in the back. I wore it all the way open and it was still very ladylike.

Perfect for a Christmas party!
I rented a size 0 but should have worn a 2 but it wasn't available. The material of this dress is extremely thick and reminded me of wearing a wetsuit. Overall this dress is great as long as you get the right size.

Great dress!
This dress is really fun and pretty, and is very sexy. It's definitely form fitting. I don't typically wear form fitting clothing. I typically wear a 0, but I sized up and wore the 2 for this dress. Both fit, but I just felt more comfortable in the 2. The 2 was a little large in the arms and was longer than the 0, but was more forgiving in the body of the dress. I would recommend definitely getting a back up size so you can try both on and see what works best. I wore this dress to a Christmas party, and it was perfect for the event! I would recommend renting this dress.

My family called it the "wetsuit!"
I wore this for a rehearsal dinner in Florida. The material was super constricting. It even has zippers on the sleeves. My family called it the "wetsuit" and made fun of me. It also has a seam down the front middle of the dress that I didn't anticipate. It just felt very costume-like. I had to roll the sleeves up. This dress would be better for an older woman for a winter-like affair. Fortunately, it photographed well.

Perfect classy red dress!
Fit was tight but comfortable. The material was thick, so I could be outside in the fall without a coat. The zipper and scoop in the back made the dress feel not too stuffy. The color is not a vibrant red, but still definitely makes you stand out. Overall, totally recommend!

Simple design with a bold color made me look flawless
Really classic cut that still had some sex appeal with the color and tighter fit. I wore this to an awards dinner that I was being honored for in my profession so I wanted to look professional but still stand out — this was it! Received a lot of compliments on it. The material is thick so no need to wear spanx or anything under it. I'm typically an 8 but they only had a 10; it fit well so I'd recommend possibly sizing up.

Great Dress
The fit is snug, but thick enough to where it smooths as well. I guess the key is that the lining material and is almost.... scuba suit-y? The sleeves have a zipper on them that you can't see which I thought was odd. It also is NOT a vibrant red, it's more of a muted red. I'm sure on another person it would be really great; just not on me personally.

The dress was awesome! I was definitely the"lady I red", especially while dancing to that song!
This dress hugged the body nicely because of the dense, yet slightly stretchy fabric and with the nice Lining all I had to wear was a low backed strapless bra , put on my shoes, and I was ready! This is a classic style , yet because of the lovely true red color and zipper-made slit up the back, I think it came offf as sexy but classy! This dress was so easy to wear and would also make a great dress for the holidays, or anytime you want to feel like a lady in red!

This dress stands out in a crowd! It is sophisticated and sexy all at the same time...I loved it!
The fit is very form fitting, but it flatters in all the right places. The fabric is stretchy and very easy to wear and move in. The color is gorgeous and not too bright. The scoop back makes it fun as well as the zippers on the sleeves and slit in the back. I highly recommend this dress!

perfect dress for a fall wedding, form fitting yet classy and comfortable.
I rented this dress for a fall wedding and I loved it.. thicker fabric so great for cooler weather. i found it fit true to size but i agree with other post in that if you worry about your belly showing you may want to wear spanx. The dress is simple so i dressed it up with accesories.

I wore this dress for a first date. He called the next day for a second date.
I wore this dress for a first date and was very happy to hear him say he loved it. It's a classic style but I edged it up by unzipping the sleeves and pulling the fabric up to a 3/4 look with the black lining exposed. I added a black fabric belt over the high-waisted skirt seam so it had a pencil skirt look. The neckline was not as boat-style across the front as the picture makes it seem; it's more like a round neck wanting to be a boat. Looking forward to my second date!

This dress is gorgeous for a cocktail party. Not too fancy, but very chic.
It's tight, but it's meant to be that way. The sleeves and the back slit are hidden zippers, so you can adjust them.

this dress is very nice if you are smaller size and have flat stomach. I'm size 10 but have flat stomach even for someone like me should not rent this because it makes you look biger because of the color. But I have to say it was a beautiful dress and love this kind of red.

Love the color!
I was worried that this form fitting dress would not be flattering for my hips, but I think it worked out really well! The fabric is extremely forgiving - it is stretchy and thick, which helps hide any bumps, you know? It was a very comfortable, very warm dress, perfect for a winter wedding. And as a tall lady, I was grateful that the hemline was somewhere around my knees all night.

The dresses arrived in perfect condition!
This dress is an elegant, yet simple showstopper. It's a really well-cut sheath made of thick fabric (and it's lined), which makes it a) perfect for winter/fall events and b) great for helping to hold you in. I normally wear a 0 or 2 and wore this dress as a 2 (measurements are 34-24-35). It's hugs your every curve in a really flattering manner, and the color is a bold, but not bright, red. My height is 5'4" with a 28-inch inseam and the dress hit juuuuust below my knee. Though I would have been fine without, I wore this with a fitted slip anyway, and it definitely helped add to that va-va-voom feeling! Love the simplicity of this dress---it does its job of presenting you, the woman, as the main focus rather than taking attention for itself. And isn't that what every dress ought to do?

Cute dress but use caution if you have curves.
I rented this for a wedding, but I felt it was too fitted to be appropriate, especially if you have curves. Overall, it was cute, but maybe more appropriate for another (less formal) occasion.

Great dress, worn too many times.
Loved the way the dress arrived - with 2 free New Years Eve crowns, free magic tape, and I love that we get to keep the garment bag. The dress was beautiful, but worn way too many times. It was starting to pill in places. The zipper was completely stuck and unmovable. Thankfully the dress was stretchy, so I could slip into it without worrying about the zipper. If this hadn't been the case though, I don't know what I would have done. The dress fit like a glove and was flattering - but you do need to wear Spanx/shapewear underneath. I didn't like the sleeves - the wrist was not close fitting. I think the wrists were stretched out from too many wears. The dress was very comfortable. Overall, I loved the Rent the Runway process and am excited to rent again, but I wish I had gone with a different dress. I liked this one, but because of the above mentioned issues, I would have picked a different dress if given a chance after seeing this dress.

The dress was very pretty however the arms were about 3 inches too short and it was a little plain. I ended up wearing my other style instead.

Sexy, but classy and comfortable!
I wore this for my stock the bar wedding shower, and felt comfortable the entire time. Even when everyone else changed into "comfy" clothes, I stayed in my dress and heels. I did not need spanx or tights, even though it was cold outside and the dress is form-fitting. Normally I have some sort of caution about some part of the dress, but with this one, I have nothing. Loved it! PS: Please forgive the duck face in the second photo. :o)

Did not love it, but high quality.
I found this dress a little too conservative, even for a work event. It was not as flattering on me as the photo, I probably should have gone a few sizes down but I was nervous because it looked tight!

The back of the dress is unforgettable!
This is a hot dress. Great for an AC (cool) venue or Fall. However, it's not a formal dress. Open back is amazing!
