Attention Grabbing

Be prepared to be the center of attention with this dress between the color (perfect shade of red!) and the form fitting silhouette! I rented this dress for my office holiday party and I received compliments all night! Fortunately I have rented another dress by this designer and already knew which size would fit me best. I usually wear a size 4 or 6 and the 8 (European size, which is a US 4) worked perfectly. The only thing I wish I could have had was the petite size instead of the regular since I'm only 5'1". But because the length of this dress isn't floor length I think it worked nicely. Plus I paired the dress with nude heels, which helped. This dress is elegant, sexy, and comfortable! I would definitely recommend this dress and would most likely rent it again!

Not quite as dressy as expected

This dress is BEAUTIFUL. Just as expected- solace London is one of my favorite designers and always great quality! I️t is stretchy but probably runs a bit small. I️ wear a 00 in normal clothes or 4uk in solace London, and this fit well. Length was more of a maxi, but unfortunately I️ didn't wear I️t. The material is more like a knit and I️ had expected a scuba, so it was not quite dressy enough for the Holiday Concert I had rented it for... and I️ didn't have another appropriate occasion right now. I️ will rent again and wear in the future! Really flattering cut, as always with this designer. Beware if you are body conscious, this particular material doesn't hide or forgive as much as the other solace London dresses I have worn!! Highly recommend :)

Hot red & elegant

If all designers stick to one size number system- that would be great ! In this designer ( i wear size 10 & no need to criticize dress that doesn’t fit - lets comment on the fit, material & what important). I could went with 8- but i think more of the loose fit -work for this particular model. Fabric was rich looking & on the heavy side- so its fall & dont ride up or so on, the neck is on the wide side, but don’t forget unzip small zipper so u can get in. The dress was stand out in its simplicity & color forward, i wish it came in other colors! I would re rent!!!!

Runs huge

Dress is so stretchy - ribbed sweater dress material- SIZE DOWN- it was way too large the first time i put it on- too large in the waist . But the smaller fit perfectly. I wore it to Masa so by the 20th course when my stomach was expanding, the dress accommodated

Knockout dress

This dress is very form fitting and shows off every little curve--the color and the slit make it a knock out. I got non stop compliments all night at the NYE gala i wore it to.

Lady in Red

Absolutely loved this dress! It was so much fun! It was the perfect balance between form-fitting/sexy and mid-length conservative. I loved it! I will warn that this dress is a bit of a "gremlin", as it turns weird colors if you get it wet. It freaked me out. Nonetheless, I dub this dress a definite winner.

First time renter and I'm in LOVE!

I wore this dress to a formal brunch and I was super happy with everything about it! The color is perfect for winter or spring. It fit perfectly and the material stretches so I had no problems moving around in it. I was able to wear a regular bra. I wore this dress on a winter day in NYC and was worried about it not having sleeves but the material and the length of the dress make up for it and I was totally comfortable. Only advice I would give is to wear no show or no underwear as the dress is formfitting and line will show. I felt so fashionable and confident while wearing this dress. You will absolutely love it!

How easy the process was between rental and return

The fit was wonderful. The dress is stunning. The material is stretchy. I had to wear spanx with it as it does truly show every dimple, underwear, etc. I definitely stood out. Worth the money

A standout, comfortable and fun red dress to wear!

I absolutely loved this red dress! am 5' 1" and weigh about 118 lbs; I wore the 6R size, which fit perfectly, and the length was also perfect which is always tricky since I'm petite. Overall it was a great dress to wear and would recommend it!

Warm color

The fit was good. I really liked the color. It has a simple yet elegant and modern look. The fabric is a bit more informal than how it looks in the picture. It is a bit demanding, especially, if one orders a size that fits tightly to the body.

Solace London Always Hits the Mark

One of my favorite dresses I have rented from RTR. Comfortable and versatile stretchy fabric that is so smoothing and flattering. Love this sporty high neck look, but the slit keeps it sexy!

Classy but heavy and it get baggy

Truly one of the best dresses for a profesional yet show stopping / classy/ sexy look. The material is very heavy so if you are wearing it for more than a few hours it loses its shape and gets a bit baggy. But amazing dress overall!!!

Power color!

This dress was a hit for my red carpet event! I got a TON of compliments all night. I typically wear a 4 and the Euro 8 was just right. The fabric is very heavy and stretchy. It almost seemed too casual, but dressed up with jewelry and shoes, it was perfectly matched for my night out.

Pretty but went with something else

As what other reviewers said, the fabric is quite heavy and easily stretches. It does show anything you'd rather not show, so I'd recommend Spanx. Color and cut are beautiful

Loved this dress!!

This dress was perfect for a wedding reception that I attended. I am 6 months pregnant and this dress went perfectly over the bump. I will say that it was a little big so I wish I would've rented a size down. One thing to keep in mind is that the armpit area is cut low so you can see your bra - would recommend not wearing a bra if possible. Overall though - I received so many compliments and loved the way I felt in this piece. Would definitely recommend renting it!

Showstopper

The most glam AND comfortable dress I've ever worn. Compliments all night long. Fabric has stretch, and is thicker so it really smoothed everything out. That said, regardless of how in shape you are, shapewear could really take it to the next level. Dress hugs all the way down, but not in a tight way. Very breathable. I'm 5'5" and the dress was long. And it got longer! I had it on a hanger for a few days and the dress stretched out another half inch to an inch. So if you like the length when you try it on, don't hang it up. It fell to about a inch above the floor when I stood tall without heels. It also stretched out underarm, so you might need some fashion tape. I didn't find the slit very high when sitting and thought it showed the perfect amount of leg. I think this dress would be flattering on most, and on all if you throw in some shapewear. Also don't wear underwear because even my seamless ones showed lines. I paired the dress with some nude Sam Edelman naked heels, a yellow zac by zac Posen handbag (from RTR!) with floral appliqués and some Trina Turk gaudy yellow and amber earrings. I wore a blue tuxedo blazer as a jacket, and just LOVED everything about this look. I wish I had more photos!

Red hot dress!

This dress is fabulous. The color is beautiful and attention grabbing in pictures and in person. The dress is definitely form fitting (and a bit unforgiving if you are photographed from the wrong angle).

Great maternity option

Rented dress for a formal wedding in late October. Fit was good, I was able to wear my pre-pregnancy size and still fit my bump (7 months) in comfortably. Material is a very thick, stretchy, knit material, which was great for me since it was about 50 degrees out. Probably not a good choice for warmer weather.

Didn't love this

This dress was too big. The material also doesn't allow for any curves. The material was itchy too. Didn't look horrible, but didn't feel my best either. ended up not wearing it.

The material is amazing ! Looks good. Not a look for shorter women.

I am both top and bottom heavy. The materials is great but it didn't hug me and my curves the right way. Looking back, I should've cinched the waist. That would've helped.

I LOVE THIS DRESS! I got so many compliments! It fit like a glove and the design of it is so classy. I loved the bright pop of red and how soft the material was. I truly wish this dress was mine, lol. Huge thank you to RTR for a great experience!

Runs large

Fits like a 12R not a US size 8. The dress was overall large and because it is knit material the dress grows as you wear it. Would order again but order 3-4 sizes smaller.

Comfortable for a 7 mos pregnant woman

I wore this to my baby shower, got many compliments. I usually wear a size 6 and wore the 6 to my shower and it fit well, it showed all the curves I wanted it to show. No special underwear required. It was comfortable, not heavy and definitely beautiful. I would recommend to pregnant women who want to look and feel great but are skeptical that regular size clothes won't do the trick. 5 stars all the way!
