Gorgeous red dress, can't go wrong with this timeless piece!
Perfect fit, true to size. Material had a bit of stretch to it which made it super comfortable. Length came right below the knee which is perfect for a sexy yet classy look.

Shows of your figure in a sexy yet classy way
I'm usually very self conscious when it comes to form fitting dresses but this one was extremely flattering! The material was stretchy in all the right ways. I went a size up so that I had room for eating and dancing! I will say that the neck was a little tight when I had to sit/ drive in the car but while moving around the wedding I was fine. Great color as well. It was perfect for a beautiful, fall wedding!

Beautiful dress
I loved this dress. I typically wear a 6 and I rented an 8. I never tried the 6 and it probably would have fit, just a little more snug. I got a ton of compliments and the color was vibrant and beautiful. I am 5'3", so it hit right below the knee.

Loved this dress!
Fit very well a little tight in the hips, but the 4 was too big. Fabric was comfortable and moved well. Can easily wear a strapless bra w this, no issues. Got lots of compliments!

classy red dress
I rented this last minute for a November wedding and am glad I did! The dress is elegant and can be dressed up or dressed down. I wore it with a gold statement necklace and nude heels. I am 5'10 and the dress was a perfect length, but beware if you are short as it will probably be long on you. The dress fit pretty true to size, they only had a size 12 available for when i needed it and it worked, it was a little loose at the bottom and in the chest area, but I made it work. I could have done with a size 10 if they had it. Overall I would recommend and the color is great it's more of a deep red then a cherry red which I liked for a fall wedding

I wore this for a work cocktail party, I got a lot of compliments. The dress fit great, it had a bit of give in the fabric so it didn't feel uncomfortable, but still ran true to size

6 months pregnant
Typically I'm a size 4-6 depending on the dress... but since I'm 6 months pregnant I rented the 6 and 8. They both fit but the 8 was a little baggy in my chest area and looked a bit funny. The 6 was a little tight on my bump after I ate but still fit good. Overall, very happy with my rental!

Color stands out.
This was my first #RTR dress and overall I really liked it. Color was beautiful, dress came clean like new condition and loved the accessories that went with it. I wore to a wedding and got a lot of compliments. Downside was that it ran big and was loose in chest area. I went to store and tried on the 10 which fit. Stylist thankfully ordered me an 8 and 10, bc the 8 was loose in chest/arms area so my bra showed a little which I was a little self conscious of. May not be great fit for someone large chested.

Love the color!
I ended up wearing another RTR dress, this dress runs a bit large. I would recommend renting your size & one size smaller. It bunched in my midsection & back, & with the dress going slightly below the knee it's not super flattering on a short person! BUT - I loved the color (esp for the holidays) & this would be a great option for a more conservative event.

Classic yet comfortable
This dress was everything I needed it to be. Comfortable yet classic! I could wear both the size 6 and the size 8 but chose to go with the size 8 because it was a more comfortable fit. Loved having the extra size option!

I loved it!
I wore this dress to a casual holiday party and it was perfect. The dress is form fitting and very flattering. I have broad shoulders and felt like the dress is a little tight around the collar but this did not make the dress uncomfortable to wear at all. The dress can be worn with a strapless bra or with a halter strap. I would love to rent it again.

flattering, attention grabbing red, but still classic
I am between a 6 and 8, the 8 fit well with the exception of being somewhat loose in the waist, however this usually happens to me because i have to size up for my butt/thighs. Still looked great though. The 6 was way too tight in booty. Loved it so much, I rented it again! Tons of compliments both times, wish I could own it.

Happy to show off this bump :)
I am usually a size 4, but at 25 weeks pregnant I ordered a 4 and 6. There is a little give in the dress but it is not stretchy so I went with the 6. I am carrying on the smaller side and the one size up worked perfectly. I think I would've fit the 4 just fine if I didn't have a bun in the oven. ;-) I received many complements all night and even for the following week from other people who saw pictures. I'm so happy I chose this dress for my husband's Christmas work party.

Wore this dress when I was 8 months pregnant, and it was PERFECT! Made me feel so good!
The fit was perfect :) Since it's a non-maternity dress, I was worried, but it had just enough stretch to work with my big baby bump. I wore it for my birthday dinner with my hubby, and I'm so so glad I rented it. I wished I had it for all of my holiday events! I would def rent this again when I'm not pregnant, but it made me feel especially good while pregnant! Note that I was 8 months pregnant at the time, 20 pounds gained, 34D bust (different measurements than my normal profile ;)!)

Great, flattering holiday party dress!
This dress had a flattering fit and I received many compliments on it. I loved that it was conservative in the neckline and length, but still hugged curves enough to feel a bit sexy too. I was able to wear a strapless bra underneath. The red color was perfect and the dress is easy to accessorize too. I'd recommend this rental!

Winter wedding chic + baby bump friendly
I was looking for something chic to wear to a winter wedding that would complement my growing baby bump. I saw another review featuring a bump and was sold. The color, neckline, and fabric are super flattering. I received so many compliments all night and was so happy with my choice. This dress is so versatile too - can be styled many different ways (hair, makeup, shoes, accessories). As for cons, I found the back stitch on the bottom of the skirt (where the slit is) to be a little tight. I ordinarily wear dresses in size 6 but took the 8 thanks to pregnancy weight gain. (I was 21 weeks at the wedding). Overall a great pick!

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!

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.

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!
