Christmas Party
Lots of compliments, beautiful wine color. Very fitted, and has a waist seam that I didn't think showed in the picture that created a little bulge.

Lots of compliments!
I'm usually an xs but ended up wearing the s. I was a little concerned about the other reviews that reported scratching under the arms, I felt a little something but overall did not bother me. Very sparkly, great short dress for formal occasion.

This dress is much shinier in person than the muted hues in the pictures. It is also spandex-tight, and short. Even the larger back-up size I ordered didn't fit, and after seeing it in person, it wouldn't be appropriate for a wedding. It is still a great dress, and would be perfect for a night out dancing with the ladies!

Absolutely gorgeous party dress
I ordered this dress for an annual birthday party for a friend. The order process was quick and easy. I loved the flexibility of ordering two sizes. The dresses arrived on time the day before my event. The dress was absolutely gorgeous! I received so many compliments, from friends, acquaintances, and strangers alike. Several people commented that I was the most beautiful lady in the venue that night. Exactly the reaction I was hoping for! The only thing about the dress that was not ideal is the sequins are very scratchy. I was dancing for most of the night, and my arms became irritated by the sequins.

Beautiful, but with caveats.
RTR sent this as a backup when my original dress wasn't available. I wanted it to work, but it's 1) low-cut up top (I mean bottom-of-the-sternum low-cut) and 2) tight down below. Since I was attending a party for my kid's school, I figured that BOTH 1) and 2) would be too much. Dang. If you're comfortable showing curves and cleavage, though, go for it! It's a lovely fall/winter color and was comfortable. I might consider renting it again for a different occasion.

Stunning
This dress is great for a dressy occasion where you want to feel a little sexy. It is form fitting, so be ready for that, but the cut is not too low so it keeps it classy. I received tons of compliments. The cons are that it is a little short. I am 5'4" and if it was any shorter it would have been inappropriate. I also found it ran small. I am typically a 0 or 2 in designer dresses and this 2 was very, very snug. Maybe that is simply the way it fits, but I think I could have easily worn a medium. Also, the sequins was very scratchy and easily got caught on things. It ruined the scarf I was going to wear with it.

Never felt sexier! This dress is a SHOW STOPPER!
Wore this to my girlfriend's bachelorette party. Fit was great. Wore a tummy control thong with it and a full bra. Sometimes it would sneak out. A nubra would have been better. Not too short. Scratched up my underarm pretty bad but it was worth it! I got so much attention and compliments at every bar we went to!

I loved this dress! I got a ton of compliments. Will rent again for sure.
The dress fit true to size and was pretty comfortable. Length was great for a short girl like me who has to wear a larger size but doesn't have the height to go with it. The color is gorgeous for fall. More merlot than red. The only negatives were the sequins made the under arm area a little itchy. The zipper was tough due to the seaming in the dress.

Stylist Review!
I absolutely LOVED this dress! I was a bit nervous about the silhouette and the sequin, but it was my birthday, so I went with it. This dress ended up being a huge winner. The length was great and it hugged every curve in the best way. There is not a lot of stretch, at all, but I didn't mind because it kept everything in its place. You will definitely show some cleavage in this style. It is a perfect going out or party dress. I will definitely be renting this style again!

Amazing color & the glam factor is undeniable!
I wore this date to a sorority semi formal and I kept getting compliments the whole night! The color is very unique and this is "the party dress". The dress is a little heavy, low cut i)f you're not used to cleavage), and runs a little small but over all very flattering and photographs like a dream!

Stylist Review
This dress is definitely needs to be worn with a Nu Bra, or you can even go bra-less depending on your bust size. The perfect party go to for the holiday season! Super fitted and has a low v-neck within minimal support. I would recommend sizing up for your back up size as this dress has very little stretch to it!

Perfect color for a holiday party
The dress is stunning! I wore it to a Christmas Party and was complimented all night. I usually wear a M/L in dresses and had to wear an XL for this dress! The L was too snug. Wore control Top tights for a smooth look underneath and a low bra, at times it would peek out, almost went with no bra. The only con is that my arms were scratched up by the sequins. If you can tolerate the irritation, then this dress is a absolutely a must!

Too tight, too short and not ideal for full bust!
I was so sure this dress would fit me because I saw another customer review with a person with my height and weight, but our body type and bust size were different. Apparently THAT made all the difference! The dress was too short, even for my height and I'm short! Having the fuller bust worked against me; the dress wouldn't zip all the way up. I usually wear a M in dresses and this was way too tight. The neckline was very low and my bra kept showing when I had first tried this on. This dress is beautiful and was super fun, and I'm sad it didn't work out, but you can win them all!

I wore the dress for my 30th birthday.
The dress fit FABULOUSLY. I got a small and a medium and while both fit me, I opted for the small for the slightly more tighter fit. It was a little on the low cut side and my bra kept showing (probably should have just worn cutlets) but I ended up ditching it towards the end of the night and it still gave me a nice bust-y silhouette. It's definitely a darker pink with purple tones. It sparkled just right and looked amazing in all the pictures. I got complimented all night long for it. My first RTR experience, but certainly not my last!

So Much Fun - Felt Really Sexy!
I loved this dress, I didn't want to send it back! I wore this for my fiancés holiday party - it's not very conservative but I still didn't feel out loud line because the back isn't low and it's not too too short. Overall very hot! **Pros: True to size and form hugging, but the fabric is fairly thick so it's pretty forgiving. Color is gorgeous and rich. Extremely flattering and got tons of compliments. I felt like Sofia Vergara. **Cons: There were a few threads pulled - not a huge deal. And it IS a bit itchy. **Tips: You'll definitely need to wear a low cut bra with this one as it is very low cut - or nothing, if you're bold - like I said the fabric is thick and it's pretty form hugging so no one would know. **Don't wear it if: you're going for a conservative look, or you're self conscious about showing too much cleavage. This dress is all about that vavavoom!

I rented this dress for a holiday party. It was so fun to wear, and I got a lot of compliments!
This dress fit perfectly! I was worried about it showing too much cleavage, but it was definitely okay. It was low-cut but still classy. The armpits were a little scratchy at the end of the night because of the sequins, but it was worth it. Also, if you're going to be dancing a lot it might not hurt to use some tape just to be sure you don't have a wardrobe malfunction :)

Wanted something sparkly but age-appropriate for my 30th bday and I could get away without a bra
Dress fit well! I am either a medium or large so i ordered both. The only problem was the sequins made my arms itchy but that's what you get with sequins. Got a Lot of compliments!

This dress was absolutely stunning! I normally wear a small, but had to wear the medium.
The dress is gorgeous! It runs a bit small and the "v" in the front is quite low. The model in the photo is flat chested, so I wasn't sure how it would look on me. I felt va-va voom and my husband loved it...haha! I will rent a dress from the same designer for NYE.

LOVED this dress! Super fun & Sparkly!
Very Sexy and super fitted (with stretch). Definitely a lot of cleavage, need a low cut bra in the front. Armpits and forearms were super raw at end of night, but totally worth it! Got SO MANY compliments and felt hot! I wore the small, and usually wear a size 2 dress, but it was painted on, so just know that it's tight! But you can sit no prob as it has stretch.

Absolutely perfect fit, I was the hit of the party!
This dress fit like a glove! I never have cleavage and this dress created it, other people even noted that! Haha. I danced the night away in this, and although I did end up scratching up my arms a bit on the sequins, I would wear this dress again and again!!! People arriving just kept saying 'Wow'. I got so many compliments!! Thank you again for an easy and unforgettable way to look beautiful for an evening!

Fun dress!
Rented this dress for a work holiday party. Super cute, fun dress. Received a lot of compliments but my arms were super irritated at the end of the night. I rented sequence dresses before but this is the first time I had irritation. The front is very low cut so if you are lucky enough to be larger chested than me (90% of women fall into this category ) it might be a little too sexy for a work party

Another successful rental!!!!
This dress is so beautiful! It is painful but beauty is sometimes pain. I did get the tiny cuts under my arm from the sequins like others have mentioned in their reviews....but it was worth it! The plunging neckline was gorgeous and manageable, even with 36DDDs. I was able to wear a low plunge bra and everything was in place. Rent this dress if you want to shine on the haters...literally!

I think that this dress was really beautiful.. I got tons of compliments! It is so pretty in person!
This dress was pretty tight. I also ordered the XS just in case, but I couldn't fit it over my butt, lol! I don't have much of a chest, so I wore my sticky bra for some extra padding (had I not, I would not have filled out the cups of the dress). The deep V would have made me self conscious (personally) if my chest was larger, but if you have a larger chest and cleavage is your thing, then this is the dress for you. It's a really beautiful dress in person. I chose to wear it for my husband's police ball, and the theme was 20s and 30s. I received many compliments, and I felt so pretty. (*On a side note, my XS came with pit/deodorant stains/smells, and I was so glad that the Small fit me. This was my first rental, so I didn't know to triple check everything as soon as it arrived. MAKE SURE to open your garment bag and inspect your items thoroughly as soon as you receive them. I didn't do that this time until the night before my event, and had I needed the XS, I would have not been able to get in touch with them in time for a replacement. I did, however, let them know about my issue after the fact, and RTR took care of it with excellent customer service!)

I received many compliments on this dress! The sparkles were amazing.
The fit was flattering. Typically I wear a size XS, but the small fit me well-although it was on the tight side. The only downfall of this dress was the sequins-they scratched my arm and were a bit uncomfortable.

Company Holiday Party at the Museum of Science
The dress fit like a glove, received tons of compliments and felt wonderful in it. The dress like others have commented did scratch the underside of your arm where the sleeve was (totally worth it and not that bad) and I would recommend a very low cut bra or no bra and tape for sure to make sure everything stays in place. Beautiful color and dress, would highly recommend for a fun night!

Sparkles that didn't quit!
I wore this to a NYE event and it was a show-stopper! Very low-cut, but for small chested ladies like myself, it was just the right amount of skin. I'm also about 5'9, so the dress was short, but still very comfortable to dance in. The sleeves were scratchy at first when I tried it on, but I soon forgot all about it because I was having such a good time and felt great in what I was wearing. AND it can be worn with a normal bra, so extra bonus points there.

Very little stretch. Comfortable and a gorgeous color. Used a little fashion tape in the front since it is very low cut. Not too short, even when worn with 4' heels. Sequins didn't scratch my arms or catch on anything. Definitely would rent again!

Lots of compliments on this sparkly NYE dress
I ordered an extra small and small - and the small fit and was even a little snug. I recommend ordering normal size and going up one size. Dress got A TON of compliments. Is form fitting and has a really deep V in the front, you won't be able to wear a bra. I wore it with tights and black booties. The sequins rub a little bit under the arms, but I think that's because it was just a tick tight. Overall a great dress, got lots of compliments.

Very pretty dress!
I rented a dress to go to a wedding and this one showed up! It was right around the time that I wanted to take Christmas pictures and this dress worked perfectly. I am 5'2 and 146 this dress came in an XL and fit perfect. This wasn't the best picture of the dress but it was the only full length picture I had.

I LOVED this dress - I rented this for a holiday cocktail party - it was perfect!
This dress fit perfect! The length was great - not to short. The material was stretch enough as not to be restricting, and was comfortable all night. I felt fantastic in this dress and will hopefully have a reason to rent it again. I did notice small scratches on the underside of my arms the next morning - but I didn't even feel anything during the party, so not even a big deal to me.
