I felt incredible in this dress.

This dress fit like a glove. Nice length, the illusion material was beautiful, and material was lovely- not too thick, but great for a winter night out. I would rent this again in a heartbeat!

Lots of compliments Great fabric and hangs well

I was worried that dress would show My budges but a pair of spanks kept everything smooth. Loved this dress

The illusion sleeve on these dress is amazing!!

The color is bright and bold. The fit of the dress is perfect and the illusion sleeve adds that little bit of sex appeal! Absolutely loved wearing this dress and received so many compliments!

You'll feel like the life of the party in this red number. Only wish the skirt was a little shorter.

Red stunner!!

I am normally a size 4, but they only had a 2. I took a risk, and while it was for sure TIGHT, I was obsessed with this dress! Great, thick material. My only complaint was a small hole near the zipper :( reported it to RTR. Don't hesitate to get this dress.

Gorgeous! But! I am returning it because it is too small. Hope you have the next size.

Just a tad small all over. I need a four.

Unique and beautiful

Loved this dress, received tons of compliments. Unique detailing really stood out. Good quality. Runs a little small. I usually wear a 6 and I went with an 8 on this and I'm glad I did

More formal than expected with the illusion cutout - was hoping to wear for a dinner party.

Big in the hips, definitely more cocktail than work or dinner party.

Fits like a glove, but like a glove that makes you feel like a million bucks

This dress is made of some kind of magic. The material is thick enough to hide a multitude of sins, it's a beautiful vibrant red color, the cutout is actually lined with a very thin almost mesh like hosiery (the kind of thing on figure skaters' outfits), and without a bra this still felt very secure and lifted/defined my chest really nicely. It fell a little longer on me than the model - I'm 5'3 and it fell below the knee - but I was expecting/hoping it would. Love love love this dress!

The modern style and color made me a stand out!!

I am 5'8" 138lbs athletic build, I am a size 4 and ordered this in a 4 and 6, ended up wearing the 4. Material has stretch and was very comfortable, I had to sit for a very long time. Total stunner and received numerous compliments.

LOVED this dress... hated sending it back

Beautiful dress, amazing design, so flattering. Just the right amount of stretch. The bust was a tad snug and after a few hours the lower portion of the dress became more roomy. If i owned it I would alter that area but seriously a wow dress. Sleeves were long and I've got long arms. Had to fold under. Looked great highly recommend. Wore strapless bra, worked perfect. Love the illusion... the mesh was hard to see so it really looks like a cutout. Aaaaahhhhh!!! I wish I could afford to buy this.

Please commented among themselves about my dress and how fabulous looked loud enough for me to hear them. I was beaming with confidence. This dress makes an impression. I'm Tiny waisted with a large bust and this fit everywhere perfectly

Odd extra fabric at the hips

This was one of the more unflattering dresses I've rented, but I imagine fit is difficult when using close-fit dresses that are not made with stretchy fabrics. I have hips, but there was a bunch of fabric just sitting outside my hips making it looks like I had a muffin-top I don't have! I couldn't wear it.

it is forgettable

the shoulder area was saggy and the dress was too large in the shoulders, sleeves were too long, yet the body fit good...not too tight.

Bold, Modern, Beautiful

Wore this dress to an outdoor winter charity gala. The local newspaper ended up including my photo among the few that were featured online, and I can't help but think a big part of it was because of this showstopper of a dress! Be prepared with fashion tape though. The sleeves were waaaaay too long, so i had to roll them inwards and tape them up. There's a fair amount of heavy fabric - not the most fitted (as you can probably see in the sleeves) - but not too big a deal.

Sleeves are long!

This is a beautiful dress. Unfortunately, it looks better on the model than it did on me. The sleeves on this dress are long. The cutout on the sleeve is covered in mesh. If you have texture issues this might be slightly uncomfortable for you.

A well tailored dress with unique details

This is a beautiful dress - the color is perfect, the illusion fabric is so perfect it actually looks like skin, the quality of the material and cut is great. Just know it runs a little small - I’m typically a size 0, which this was, and I had to “suck it in” the entire night. By the end of my endulgent dinner, the dress was probably a size too small. 🤣 A unique piece that drew lots of compliments.

Did not wear

The dress was okay, nothing special. I though I would like it more in person but I was not really impressed with the overall dress. The arms were tight and that was the reason for me not being able to wear this dress.

This is an amazing dress.

Great style, material and hint of sexy and conservative. The illusion material works perfectly with the right skin tone. I loved it.

Great idea but lacked in execution

Hips fit well but the top was bunchy. The sleeves were too loose, and also very long.

I did not actually end up wearing this dress for the event.

The dress is so beautiful, I am just not tall enough to pull it off. At 5'2 and a half:) the dress was way too long on me, even with a high heel.

Great dress, but unless it Fits right on the shoulder, looks enh

Rented it for a Work Christmas party. It felt great, does show all the lines underneath, so you may want a spanx. My only issue was that if it doesn't fit you snug at the shoulders, you don't really get the illusion of the cut out. Instead the extra netting material makes it look even more obvious that it's not a cutout.

The quality was amazing and did not disappoint. Loved the dress and got a lot of compliments!

When I rented the dress I thought the cutout in the top section would show bare skin but there's a nude netting fabric which was really nice. The dress is classy but also sexy so it's a perfect combo.

Special post-Valentines dinner double date with friends

The dress fit me like a glove and was the most beautiful color! I have broad shoulders and loved how the cutout design enhanced that part of my body. The material was thick and the long sleeves helped keep me warm in the wintertime. The sleeves were a bit tight around the arm pits and I couldn't move my arms up over my head very easily, but that was literally the only drawback. Best to wear with a strapless bra. I wore with nude heels. Was a gorgeous dress and I'd definitely wear it again.
