Love this dress!

Snug fit, super stretchy fabric...short and very sexy. Didn't end up wearing, because of dress code confusion...but definitely going to rent again! The small was a perfect fit, so I'd say Oder true to size.

Great fit, slimming

I really liked this dress! Not my ultimate favorite from RTR, but I did love the fit (tight and slimming). The fabric is thick, too which is great!

Great quality! So many compliments!

I wore this for a night out on NYE. I was blown away by the quality of this dress. Nice thick stretchy material that is very forgiving. I am very short and unfortunately I had to fold the bottom of the dress under. The dress can down almost to my knees. I also wore it backwards for some nice cleavage:).

Who doesn't love an excuse...

This dress was AMAZING! It couldn't possibly be any sexier, yet it was still tasteful. I spent the entire night dancing without having any problems with the dress riding up. I wore it backwards as many other reviewers suggested for a little more cleavage. It paired nicely with a decorative crystal necklace, and nobody could even tell the dress was backwards. I have a flat stomach and nice curves, so I had no problems with any "trouble areas" but I can see how some people may want to wear spanx as the fabric is thick but stretchy. The length was definitely mini on me, as I'm 6' 1" but I doubt many other people will have that problem. The sparkly red pattern is definitely an eye catcher, as is the body hugging fit. Prepare to be the center of every guy's attention when wearing this dress!

Beautiful and flattering dress!

This was a great dress that was a nice thick fabric to help keep me warm on a cold Valentine's Day. I actually ended up wearing the dress backwards, which worked out perfectly because there's no zipper! I felt great in the dress and it hugged every curve. My fiancé said I should give this dress an 8 on a 5-point scale. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it was so snug! If I was able to wear one size bigger, maybe I would have been more comfortable. Unfortunately I didn't get the back-up size as it was returned damaged to RTR from the previous renter. RTR was awesome and send a 2nd dress as a back-up but I stuck with this one.

Awesome dress!

I'm so glad I had them ship the larger size because the small was Really tight (I typically wear a size 4). The medium was still plenty snug, but not at all uncomfortable (the dress is super stretchy). Also- the red thread in the detail is shimmery! I got compliments all night!

Lovely pattern

What I like about this dress is the thick material, it helps hide imperfections, is short but comfortable, I'm a size 8 and had to wear the large, I think it runs a little small

I got compliments on the dress all night!!

Absolutely loved this dress. This was my first rental and it was a great experience. I received the dress a day earlier than planned so I had plenty of time to try both dresses on. I rented the small and medium and decided to where the small because the medium bunched up around the middle a bit. The dress was comfortable all night and stayed in place even when dancing at my sorority formal. Under my arms were a little sore from the material consistently rubbing but it wasn't something that would have made me not rent the dress.

Perfect Vegas dress!

I rented this dress for a friend's birthday dinner in Vegas. I wanted something that was a little different for me and this did the trick. The red pattern had a little shimmer to it which I loved. Under the advice of the stylist I worked worked with at the Vegas store, I actually wore the dress backwards!! The scoop isn't nearly as deep as in the picture and it was a nicer fit. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of it but I received a ton of compliments!! The material is a little thick but it helped keep it snug. Will definitely be renting this designer again!

I got a lot of compliments on this dress.

Runs right but it's stretchy. I could fit in both but breathe easier in the medium. I was uncomfortable with my post baby belly in the dress.

Awesome and super comfortable dress to stand out in Vegas!

Loved this dress - wore it in Vegas and stood out in a sea of black. It ran small for me since I have larger hips, so I'm happy that I got the larger backup size, even though it's super stretchy. It was really comfortable, and I didn't need to keep pulling it down throughout the night. Fabric is thick - I didn't feel like it was too warm, and I appreciated the fact that everything was smoothed out. If you want to try something different like I did, pick this dress!!!

Such a fun dress!

When I first tried on this dress, I have to say I hated how it looked on me. I decided to try it on backwards and absolutely loved it! I definitely liked the scoop neck look on me rather than a higher neckline and love that with this dress you have the option of wearing it 2 completely different ways. The dress does ride up when you walk/dance and the fabric is thicker than I anticipated, but that worked out well because I'm small chested and didn't have to wear a bra with it! Overall I loved the way the dress looked on me. I received tons of compliments all night.

Gorgeous dress, so many compliments!

This dress was sent to me as a replacement for one that was too small. RTR was fantastic and overnighted this dress to me at my hotel in Michigan. The dress itself was beautiful. It is made of a very thick material and it is tight, but it fit me really well and I got tons of compliments all night. The color is very striking. The dress is long compared to some dresses of this style, but it does have a tendency to ride up a bit while dancing. I did not feel uncomfortable at any point either while dancing or while sitting. I will definitely rent this dress again and will almost certainly try another one from this designer.

It's very easy to rent, the reviews from people helps a lot & price was right! Love RTR!

I have received the item on time and I was excited to check it out! My first rental wasn't successful so I was hesitant for this one. I'm very petite and skinny and some dresses doesn't fit me well or need some alteration but this dress fits like a glove! I wear it backwards to show more sexiness and folded it as it was pretty long for me. I wore it with Bebe open toes gold high heels and accessorize it with gold bracelet and watch as well minimally. The design of the dress emphasize your curves. I got a lot of compliments that night and I love the color on me! I wore it for work on backstage and a huge fashion show event. Will rent again! I'm very satisfied with RTR and RVN. My boyfriend loves it and asked for the brand many times..

Loved the dress! Form fitting but comfortable. Not just a print - design is raised and sparkly.

Fitted but comfortable. You need to be confident in your curves or wear spanx with this, but it's a great dress. Super stretchy but thick material. Not just a fabric print - design was raised and sparkly. Felt terrific in it.

Overall very flattering and comfortable.

The fabric was very thick and stretchy so it was very form fitting and flattering. I loved that there was a bit of shimmer to it but not too much. I wore it backwards to show a bit more chest but it was very pretty both ways!

Look great standing, not sitting

Like other reviewers have commented this dress is wonderful for hiding flaws (but not so wonderful that you won't need Spanx or something similar). It is a showstopper for curvy ladies who want to make a statement but you need to have great posture and be prepared to stand most of the night. Once you sit the design actually calls attention to problem areas due to the natural bunching that happens to dresses when ladies sit. Between the time that I ordered my RTR and it arrived I had a medical emergency that meant I was going to have to attend this event in a wheelchair. Due to that constraint and the unique design of the dress I could not wear it. But it is lovely and if I make a full recovery I may rent it again.

Back up dress, loved it

This dress was great. The pattern is stunning. Would be great for a holiday party as the red is slightly sparkly. I went with my other dress but also loved this one. It is a super think material so it definitely hugged all my curves, if that's what you're going for, get this dress!

Both dresses came on time and in perfect condition!

Loved this dress. Thick material and stretchy. It really holds your body in nice and is super comfortable. I went with the small because the medium was just as tight just more material. The red detailing is actually kind of shimmery which is really pretty! Got so many compliments on this dress! Would definitely rent it again :)

Very flattering dress, looks great in photos

The dress was comfortable and very form fitting. The pattern looks very striking in photos. Because the material is quite thick and stiff, I had some issues with it riding up a bit now and then, but overall it was not a problem.

I had so many compliments on the dress, and everyone just thought it was so flattering!

Really does fit true to size! It is very tight, so if you get to big of a size it will bunch together. I have bigger hips but I managed to pull off wearing this dress! It's such a beautiful dress, and everyone will give you compliments like no other!

Very close fitting yet comfortable at the same time. The red on the dress has some glitter which adds to the look. I'm a 34 DDD and the girls were in.

Happy 4th of July

Didn't have a plan when I rented just thought it would be cute for 4th of July and ended up just wearing to dinner. Very easy to wear once it is on but a bit hard to get on! Medium could have worked but just too hard to get over my head and down without a zipper - make sure you do makeup and hair after!! Thick material that hides some flaws.

Eye Catching!

This was my first rent the runway experience, and I was very nervous that the dress wouldn't fit or it wouldn't cover up my rear. I carry most of my weight in my hips and it is always hard for me to find a dress that I feel good in. This dress blew those feelings out of the water! I felt so good about myself and received many compliments. Will definitely recommend RTR to all my friends!

Tight, sexy dress!!!

I decided to rent this one last minute for a party- and I'm so glad I did! Like others who've worn this RVN before I wore it backwards. It fit like a glove and I felt so sexy in it. The material is really thick and sucks everything in! Wished I owned this one!!!

You WILL make a statement with this sexy AF dress!

To say all eyes will be on you is an understatement. This dress hugs every curve and is best worn backwards. The material is thick without feeling restricting. It was very comfortable. Best comment of the night "Girl you and that dress are flawless!"

Gorgeous dress

This dress was even prettier in person! The red embroidery is actually a metallic red. It really makes the dress shine and stand out. I ordered an XS, with small as my backup. They both fit great, and I could have worn either, but the small seemed to be a little newer-looking, so I went with it. They both fit, though, and both looked beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous, unique, comfortable, and sexy. Would rent again for the right occasion.
