Perfect to show off curves
Absolutely loved this dress! Ordered the 10 and the 12 (to accommodate my bigger hips/butt)- both fit alright but the 12 was a little big in the waist and chest. The 10 fit like a glove and was perfect with a little help from my spanx. It does have a little stretch so it wasn't hard to walk or dance in. Was the perfect length for me at 5'11. I expected a deeper red but it was still a lovely color. Never received so many compliments on a dress!

Pretty and flattering dress. Slightly more red than the picture. Also, the fabric made it slightly more formal than I expected.

Great dress!
The dress fit great, however it was small. I typically wear a 6 and wore the 8. I loved the dress, it wa simple, but I received many compliments on the dress.

Loved the color and neckline
Looked great at the beginning of the night but by the end of the night the wrinkles from sitting down were noticeable. Also I ate a normal sized meal at the wedding and felt the dress was quite tight afterwards.

The dress was nice, elegant.
This dress was my first order of 3 dresses from RTR in one months time. It was not my ordered dress but rather my "back up" . The dress fit nicely and was elegant. The material was of good quality and I got a few compliments. However my overall experience with RTR wasn't favorable and because I cannot review the entire site anywhere I decided to share my experience on this review. As mentioned I rented 3 dresses from the site several weeks before I had multiple events in May. My first order of two dresses arrived with only one of my 2 " first choice" dresses ( and only in one size) along with my "back up dresses" (which didn't all come in two sizes either) The one size that arrived of my "first choice" dress did not fit. Disappointed, (I really loved the dresses I picked) I called RTR and told them I was going to wear one of back ups but asked if this is common. I was reassured that this doesn't happen often and most girls get their desired "first choice" dress. I was worried I wouldn't get the dress I picked for my third event. Low and behold I get my 3rd order with only my back up dress in two sizes. Of the three RTR orders I placed I was only able to wear one dress from the site. I say this to say, when you pick your "back up" make sure you really like it, because my experience is that's the dress you'll get. Can't say I recommend RTR at this point, not money well spent.

Unexpectedly Flattering
I rented this dress having pretty low expectations. I had no time to shop for a dress and I am very petite but not as thin as some other size 0 girls. I ended up really liking this dress. I got the 0 and 2 as a back up and wore the 0. The color and fabric was very flattering. It was really tight so there was a little bunching but I didn't feel like my stomach was protruding. It was a bit longer than I would normally wear but it was nice to switch up styles. Overall great dress-would recommend even for shorter girls.

Did not wear
The 4 was my back-up size and the 6 could not be shipped. This dress is pretty form-fitting and was beautiful, but I decided the 4 was too tight to wear to the wedding I was attending. Would be beautiful for a night out, though!

First time renting went perfect!
As the first time renting I was nervous, but I fell in love with the dress as soon as I put it on. It's true to size and hugged all my curves without being too tight and still able to comfortably move around. I definitely will be renting again based on this dress!

Comfortable and classy dress!!!
The stretchy material made this dress easy to wear for all day/night wedding. It is quite fitted so spanx were my friend to keep everything in place. A strapless bra works well. I'm always one for comfort so this dress was a definite winner in my book!!!

Perfect wedding dress!!
Amazing dress! It fit true to size and easy to wear w a strapless bra. I got SO many compliments. The back is gorg with a cool racerback cut, and the material is thick enough to hide somethings you don't want seen. The material is a little stretchy so you can dance all night. I would highly recommend this dress!

I wanted to be able to wear this!
This dress fit great and was super comfortable on... so long as I was standing up. I only noticed one other reviewer mentioning it being tight in the collar, so maybe it has to do with my height + dress size combo, but when I sat down in this dress it was *very* tight across my neck. So much so that I don't think I could have worn it to a dinner (which is what I had planned to wear this to). It really felt very normal when I was standing up, though! So, this dress was a dream that could not become reality. Still, the dress was a beautiful color, lovely fabric, and was classy with a hint of sexy.

Looking for a comfortable dress that makes you feel sexy? This is the one!
I loved the fit of this dress. I decided to size up because it was a bit tight around my tummy in the size 14. We were in Las Vegas in March - so it was a bit chilly at night and this dress kept me pretty warm while still looking super cute!

Definitely had to get spanx for this one! Very cute dress and I received a lot of compliments. I'm 5'6 and weigh 155 with a curvy build. I wore a size 6 and it was a little tight at the hips and by the end of the night the straps dug into my traps a little bit, but overall it was easy to wear and dance in. I usually wear anywhere from a 4-8 and in this dress it probably should've been an 8. Would definitely recommend.

Loved how this dress fit, it's shape and color! Would absolutely rent again and would even do so to a sit down event. Fabric stretches so no need to stress when sitting and eating a delicious multi-course meal.

Stunning dress for ballet
I loved this dress. It showed off my curves while still being loose enough so that I could stuff myself with food before the event. I went bra-less but it was tight enough that you couldn't tell. Overall really loved this dress and how it was elegant, sexy, and comfortable.

Perfect for a baby bump!
I loved this dress! I'm 6 months pregnant in this photo. Normally I wear a size 4 not pregnant. I ordered a size 6 and 8 in this dress. Both sizes fit but I went with the 8 for the extra room and comfort. It hugs all the right places and has a little stretch to it so you don't feel confined. I would recommend this dress for anyone! (with or without a baby bump!)

Perfect Red Dress
A great deep red dress that works well on a body with curves. It hugged my shape, but didn't feel skin tight. I wore this dress to a cocktail networking reception, and it was the perfect combination of memorable without being too risque. My favorite rental so far.

This dress was so great and fit like a glove
It really hugged in all the right places and the material was think enough that it didn't show anything I didn't want people to see. I felt a little sexy but very classy. The color was also really beautiful. I received a lot of compliments.

Liked it but didn't love it
The color of the dress was nice but there wasn't much 'wow factor'. It was a bit long for my short frame and had a bit too much room in the bust.

Great dress!
This dress was stunning! I was about 17 weeks pregnant and the size 0 fit perfectly (118 lbs at the time). It was a little difficult to use the bathroom (the dress had to be pulled down instead of up) but the fabric was so thick and had so much stretch that sitting down normally was quite comfortable(not the case with most dresses in this style). The color was flattering and I received many compliments. As always with RTR, great service, on time, great condition and clean!

I looked through several dresses before landing on this one, happy to end with this one!
Ok, so I normally wear a size 10 (jeans) and large tops more for the length then the bust. I ended up wearing the 12 [so very thankful for the free back up size] though; the top was a little big under the arms but otherwise fit good throughout. Make sure you have no show panties and a good strapless bra to rock this because it does cling to you. I was still able to dance in it, roger rabbit and all. Paired this dress with accessories from RTR; leather jacket, earrings, and a clutch.

I wore this dress for a Valentines date night and got tons of compliments! The color was pretty and fit well over my 24 week baby bump. Had to go up a few sizes since I'm pregnant , fits snug in the chest.

Stylist Review!!!
With this little red number, less is more! I found the fabric to be super comfortable, but it is not shy and shows every imperfection! I would strongly suggest shapewear with this dress. Although I do suggest Spanx, this dress could be worn with or without a bra. I am 5'4 and the Venetian Red Sheath hit perfectly right above my knee. While the fabric does have a little bit of give, I would suggest going one size up for your backup size. It doesn't matter if you are an hourglass or more of the straight and narrow body type, everyone will love this dress!

Simple and perfect!
I wore this dress to a charity event. It was absolutely perfect! It does run small so I sized up. You definitely don't want to eat a big meal in this dress as it's very tight. It works well for tall individuals.

perfect dress!
I looooved wearing this dress. It's the kind of thing you'd wear to seduce a secret agent before revealing you are also a secret agent. I ended up sizing up (probably didn't have to, but it was for a work party and I didn't wanna be quite that showstopping) so it was looser in the bust than I'd have liked. I can see this being so versatile, can't recommend this dress enough!
