Law school five year reunion formal event
Beautiful dress and well made. Runs small - I usually wear a size 6. Need to wear a strapless/backless bra because of the sheer panels in the back. Does not hide anything so make sure you're ready to flaunt your figure!

I was wondering what the name of the bra she wore as I have rented it for an upcoming event and am having trouble with this.

Beautiful dress, tons of compliments! Stands out!
The size I needed was unavailable (0R) so I took a chance on ordering the 2R. I think the dress was meant to be a little more form fitting, but overall the one size up was fairly negligible. I wore it to a Black Tie wedding and received compliments all night. The red really stood out! It's a great quality dress, the cut is unique and it's so much fun to dance in. I'm 5'2 and wore 3in heels - I did step on the train a bit in the back but didn't bother me too much. Highly recommend

Gorgeous dress! I rented this for a black tie wedding but I decided to wear my back up dress instead which was more formal for the occasion. I would definitely rent this again for another time. Fits wonderfully. Super comfy. Sexy yet classy. I would recommend.

Lady in Red
I wore this gown for a black tie, formal event. I received many compliments. The dress fit like a glove. It was comfortable and very form fitting. I was smoking hot. I had ordered a 6, but it was too snug. I wore a size 8. I would recommend that you order this dress your regular size so it can fit like a glove, and the next size up to judge how fitted you want it to feel. It does have a little stretch. Also I'm a 36DD so if u are bigger you might need the next size up. It is a gorgeous dress and stunning color! I would definitely recommend this dress if red is your color and want to look movie star hot!

Dress came on time and was true to size.
This dress is very sexy. Beautiful and fits true to size. The reviews that say it hugs every curve and shows everything are true. This was my backup dress so I didn't wear it for two reasons - 1 because the 1st choice dress was perfect but 2 because this one was too revealing/sexy for the black tie wedding I was attending. Also the openings in the back have peach-colored mesh on them - I didn't realize that when I rented it. Gorgeous for someone who wants to be a little more on the sexy side for whatever event you are attending!

Fun sexy dress
The fit is unforgiving ... So be prepared to show off the bod! Wore a strapless bra - worked perfectly. No spanks allowed w the mesh back - great comfortable fit. High low makes it easy to walk and dance in. Great dress. The dress I wore had ripped seams, so that was a little disappointing. Would have expected a discount of some sort. Had to go into store to try on, sizes on all these dresses were all over the place.

Absolutely gorgeous
By far the Funnest and most comfortable formal dress I have worn. It's form fitting and forgiving. True to size. Beautiful shade of red. I'm 5'2 and I wore a pretty tall heel (over 3 inches) with the regular length. I got so many compliments both at the event and even in the street. It was fun to dance in as well. I would rent this a 100 times over.

The gown fit perfectly! I received many compliments the entire night! I am so happy I went with it!
The dress was the right material. I was worried that it might be restricting while dancing, walking, or sitting but it was nothing like that I thought. I was able to move without any restrictions and absolutely loved the way the dress fit! Highly, highly recommended for a wedding!

First time using RTR and it was a success!
I rented this dress for a black tie wedding. I'm usually in between a size 4-6 but as previous reviews said, it's very form fitting. The size 6 fit perfectly but if you're self conscious about a muffin top or some left over pudge, get spanx because the dress really hugs your curves. It's a beautiful dress & i received so many compliments. The entire process of RTR was so easy and they earned a forever customer.

RTR Team Review
Fabulous high low gown by Theia! This dress represents such class with a sexy edge. Running true to size, we recommend sizing up for backup and if you’re curvier or have a fuller bust to size up for your primary size as well. With very stretchy fabric, this dress is very fitted at both the waist and hips and should be worn with spanx to ensure no lines are shown. When trying on, I personally was not wearing a bra and had enough support but for someone with a smaller cup size, a strapless bra should be worn. Online the dress also appears red but in person there is a bit of a tint of orange, reminding me of a “firey” colored red. Pair with gold accessories to your black tie event or wedding and look out for the amount of compliments you will receive!

Stylist Review
This is such a beautiful gown! It fits true to size but it is very form fitting so I would size up for backup. At 5'10" the highest point of the length hit me right above my knees and the lowest point was at my ankles. I would definitely order a long if you are 5'7" and taller planning to wear heels. The fabric has some stretch but it is very clingy so I would suggest spanx to keep the look smooth. The back detail is beautiful so you will want to wear nubra or no bra to keep the straps hidden! Pair with nude heels and a statement necklace.

Lots of compliments and stood out amongst a crowd of black long dresses at a black tie event
This dress is a true red with stretchy, form fitting comfortable material. I wore the 0 which was a perfect for me. Length wise, I did wear three and half inch heels and occasionally step on the back throughout the night. Luckily, because of the high low cut the front was not an issue and walking and dancing in this dress was effortless. Highly recommend! Lots of compliments!

The fit was comfortable and the color was gorgeous. The flare at the bottom allowed me to bust many dance moves and most importantly, pictures turned out great. Another great RTR experience.

The Lady in Red!! ;)
This dress was gorgeous! Be prepared to show it all as this dress is extremely tight. Find your handy dandy spanks and you'll be ready to roll! I prepared a size smaller because it fit better on the hips to give a really beautiful, curvy shape. This dress was a total win!!! **only thing I would say is that the under part rolls up a little- make sure your dance partner knows to help you with that hahaha

The back of this dress is to die for!
This fit perfectly and was so elegant with a fun flair. I wish I got a picture of the back but if you visit my IG there is a video of me dancing in it that shows the back and how beautifully it moves. I didn't want to send it back, I got so many compliments on this dress!

AMAZING! The back is to die for and the color is gorgeous!
I wore this to a Black Tie Wedding. Definitely a stand out. Fits true to size. Very comfortable and hugging to the body. I can't believe I didnt get a picture of the back of the dress. The cutouts are mesh but even with my tan you couldnt tell there was fabric there at all. It helps to make it lay perfectly. Compliments all night long. The color is on the tomato red side which was gorgeous. I wore it with simple gold studs, gold bangle, gold ankle strap heals and gold/tan clutch.

Fantastic/Comfortable
There were no cons to this dress. The color is a beautiful warm red. The fabric has lots of body and some stretch so the fit was perfect-including the length. I have a barrel chest and a relatively small cup size-I'm a 36B and am slightly short waisted so I have to be very careful about the cuts I choose from RTR. This dress was really wonderful. I loved the back and got multiple compliments on that alone. I had never worn a high/low dress before but for this event (an art-themed gala) it was perfect. I wore it with two tone beige t strap 3.5"heels embellished with large gold snaps and two pieces of gold-tone RTR jewelry that were perfect. One of my favorite rentals ever.

OMG Hot Mama!
This dress was everything and more. I'm 5'8", 135-140lbs, athletic build, no real hips but I've got a butt. I would have never given this dress back if I had the choice - it was amazing. It hugged my waist (I could breathe and still felt tiny), made my butt look great, the back was gorgeous, it was easy to dance in. I wore it to a black tie affair and got MANY many compliments. It was one of those dresses that you just put on and are like YASSS QUEEN. I felt amazing and my guy said I was stunning. Pretty much a home run :)

This dress is a stunner!
The shade of red is perfect. I loved bottom of the dress' shape, and the back was beautiful. While it fit snuggly, there was some extra room in the bust and hips for someone who is pretty "A-line" straight in shape. The long was just right for my 5'11" height and 4-inch heels.

Definite show-stopper.
I wore this to a friend's wedding and although I did not dress it up with any jewelry or accessories I certainly felt ultra glam. Many, many compliments on the dress. I'm 5'8" and have a long torso so I opted to rent the longer cut. It might have been a half inch too long as it dragged the slightest bit behind me, but I think the regular would have been too short. I'd say this fit me pretty perfectly and the halter top works best for my frame. This was my first time using RTR and I'm really satisfied. Arrived when it was scheduled to and opening/repackaging was simple.

Comfortable and flattering!
This dress was a hit. I received multiple compliments during the night. It was very comfortable and has a little bit of stretch in the fabric so it moves with you. Since it is open in the back I wore a backless sticky bra which worked out great. I usually wear a 2 or 4. I ended up wearing a 2 because it was little bit more form fitting than the 4. I recommend this dress for any formal event.

The dress was so gorgeous and stood out from everyone else.
The dress fit perfect. The color looked beautiful in pictures, and I got a lot of compliments. The only con was the double layering of the dress sometimes caused wrinkles that needed to be fixed, but it's not a big deal in comparison to how beautiful the dress is. Definitely recommend it! I wore a size 2R and ordered the 4R just in case. I'm about 5'3 and around 127-130 lbs.

Stand out
I ended up wearing the 6R with 3" heels. I might have been able to get away with the 4, except I felt that it was a little too tight around my arms. You can't really wear spanx because of the back, but the 6 gave me some wiggle room and I really didn't need it! The material is forgivable and a decent thickness. I really loved it overall!

Not another black dress!
This dress is stunning. The color will grab everyone's attention, the fit will keep you on your toes, and the back will surprise them all! I wore this to a black tie wedding and it was so refreshing to wear something other than a dark, sleek gown. I didn't wear a bra, and it showed. I felt so damn great in the dress, however, that I didn't care. I'd recommend wearing with a small heel to accentuate the bottom and a bun to showcase the back. Have fun with this one, ladies!
