Red Stunner

This dress had a unique structure and fit very well on me. The dress was comfortable and I danced the night away.

The dress was comfortable and I felt confident but not too flashy despite the red!

Fit-wise, the dress was too big, and needed to be pinned at the waist to address the extra fabric. The arm length and fit there worked fine, however. The length hit right above my knees, which was perfect for Christmas Mass and a formal holiday party with the in-laws. While not my favorite RTR dress, I was pleased with the color, length, and overall comfort.

Material too heavy for event

This is a thick material, would be good for certain occasion but not for being active like dancing at a wedding. Too warm for Texas. Did fit true to size, flattering, and comfortable.

This dress worked perfectly with my growing belly and looked great on!

Runs baggy in the stomach region so it was perfect for growing bellys. I was 36 weeks here

Weird cut and seaming

The body of the dress was too big (size small), but the arm/shoulder seem was really tight and fell in a weird place. A smaller size for the body wouldn't have worked because of the strangely tight arm seam. I ended up not wearing it. Disappointing!

I wore this for a friend's rehearsal dinner.

The dress seemed to run a little big all over. With the right amount of jewelry, it was perfect.

Sexy

This dress looked great on. I am usually a small but I believe this dress runs large so I would get your size and the next smallest size. Bottom line- I loved the dress.

The host walked up, put his hand on my shoulder and said "best dress of the night, right here."

This dress was rouched in all the right places. It was comfy, modest, and yet still super sexy. I'd definitely recommend this dress to anyone who wants to stand out, whether at a formal or casual cocktail party.

Loved the dress! Recieved lots of great compliments! Would rent again.

I rented this dress for my husbands Christmas Party. I loved it! The large was definitely to big which made the neckline hang weird. The medium fit perfect. I was very happy I chose a back up size. I will definitely use this site again.

Beautiful color!

Dress runs a bit large, especially for how tight it appears in the image. The sleeves, however, are more true to size. Feel nicely on all my curves. Definitely order a size down than what you would normally wear.

Gorgeous dress!

Beautiful red dress! I ended up wearing the medium and the small was my back up size. Because it was for a work event, I ended up wearing the medium. However, by the end of the night, it had stretched enough to where I could have actually worn the small. I'm 5'11 155 lbs and this dress was long enough to be appropriate for the work event. I had so many compliments. This is a great rent if you need something comfortable and tasteful!

I was unable to wear this dress, but RTR customer service was stellar yet again!

I rented this for a holiday party, getting the M & S as recommended. The M was absolutely huge on me! So I tried on the S & even that was ridiculously large on me across the body. Im not sure if it was due to the dress being stretched out, but where it should have been snug across my torso, the fabric hung & looked like I was 5 lbs heavier. Sizing down to an XS would not have worked, since the sleeves didn't have the same fit issue as the rest of the dress. I was disappointed, but I did have a backup dress, that I own, that I was able to wear. Due to my crazy schedule I was unable to try the dresses on within the 24 hours after arrival, but RTR was fantastic yet again, going above & beyond in issuing me a credit. While I have not always loved the dresses that I have rented, RTR always has tried their best to provide a fantastic dress & experience!

Pretty but constantly readjusting

I first had the sleeve issue, the sleeves just didn't fit right. Then it just kept sliding down so the rouching was falling out. It was below my knees and an odd length because it couldn't hold it's shape. I had to constantly adjust it.

AWFUL! Too big & see thru! My first RTR fail! Stylist saved me w/overnight replacement!

Not meant for a petite build at all. Maybe good if you have a full bust and curvy hips. This looks horrible on me. It hung off my shoulders and looked like a saggy maternity dress.

Didn't wear it, returned it, the fit was very awkward, too loose in the waist.

I didn't wear this dress and returned it, the fit was very awkward: too loose in the waist, big air gap in the back, gathering looked frumpy, upper arm area too tight. I have a short torso so perhaps this dress would really only work on someone with a long torso.

Perfect red dress for adding contrast in pictures

This dress is beautiful. It does run a bit large so I'm glad I read the reviews before picking a size. It's also a bit hard to work with-the style is gorgeous but it does not fit the way it does in the model picture. Depending on your body type, it might look a bit baggy or you'd need a belt because of the way the fabric falls around the neck and waistline. Other than that, a very elegant and classy dress.

Boxy, baggy... Just say no!

The picture I posted? That's the BEST one I could take. It was impossible to get the ruching look like it did in the model's photo. I thought to send it back immediately for credit when I tried it on and wish I would have. A friend was able to mess with the ruching enough to get it the way it looks in the picture (which still wasn't good enough) so I went with it. It quickly was baggy around the tummy, the arms were too tight, and I had to wear the XS despite that I had packed on an extra 5+ pounds in the prior weeks (I was probably 137 lbs in the picture and I'm 5'7"). It was so unflattering. Even if I gain some weight I have a thin frame and I just felt so frumpy in this. When I saw other pictures of me in the dress I just cringed. NOT the feeling I was going for! :-(

The dress color was great and lots of people told me how great I looked.

The dress was pretty and classy but the top was extremely tight and the bottom fanned out because it was so loose. The stomach area where the draping was, was also very loose and didn't look or feel right. Plus it was also see through so I had to buy a full body slip. The model picture is nothing what it really looks like on. I wore this for a military banquet and I will never rent this dress again

It worked well for the concert I went to .. To celebrate my birthday

The dress was really loose in my stomach area but in the end the dress did it's job I liked the way I look just wish it was much tighter like how it hugs the shape of the models body .. And not so tight around the arms

Didn't even wear it

I sooo wanted to like this dress but the fit was unworkable at the shoulders and so baggy around the waist/hips that it was completely unflattering and I ended up wearing something out of my closet :( I tried the size xs and s and neither fit well. I probably should have read the reviews more closely because I see that other ladies had the same issues with the baggy waist. It just did not fit right and I can usually wear just about anything.

Beautiful and comfortable dress

I wore this for a fundraising gala and loved it. It was conservative enough for a charity but also had a touch of sexy to it. It was super comfy and was a great dress to dance in. I usually wear a 6 and wore an XS which fit me perfectly but am not sure this dress would work for someone pretty thin.

The bride made sure to mention how she noticed me as she walked down the aisle!

The fabric is perfect for an outdoor wedding! Although beautiful in color, the fit was a bit hard to manage. I was forced to belt it because there was entirely too much ruching and extra fabric at the midsection. I typically wear a S/M (4) but this dress only fit my arms. Had I opted for the XS, I'm sure it wouldn't have made it over my head. I didn't know anyone besides my date, but everyone mentioned how confident and radiant I looked!

Comfortable but pretty!

I wore this to a NYC runway show, and needed to have comfort as well as style. This dress did not disappoint! The only drawbacks were that it was a little large, and it shifted a lot throughout the night. Any time I moved, I felt like I had to pull it back in place.

So many compliments!

I was a little nervous about wearing the small at first because I usually wear a medium. But the recommendation was to rent a size down so I did. It fit perfectly! I will admit at first the top is awkward. It didn't feel like it laid right on my body (in either the small or the med). Almost like it wasn't sewn right or something. I wore it kind of "off the shoulder" a bit and after a few minutes I got used to it and it was very comfortable. I got so many compliments on it during the party. Unfortunately, I had to cut the evening short because my son got sick but I would definitely love to wear this again!!

Great color and style (6-1/2 month baby bump)

I got this dress since other reviews said it ran very large in the midsection, being that I was about 6 and a half months pregnant. The dress was comfortable everywhere except the shoulders, mine are broad, so my arms were just kind of squeezed in the medium. I ordered the small and medium, and honestly, if it weren't for the sleeves, I would have gone with the small. By the end of the night I felt like I was swimming in the dress, too loose even for my baby bump. Kinda sloppy looking, because it just continues to stretch out. 3 Stars just because of the weird fit on me. This dress never would have worked had I not been pregnant, because the shoulders were just too tight, and the midsection too big.

Fun Red Dress

Wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner and loved it. The first time I tried it on I wasn't so sure I was going to like it, but as soon as I put it on to go out the door I was so happy! The neckline is a little strange, but once you get it to fold over itself correctly it looks great. Stands out in a crowd.

I wore this to a Republican event and it was a huge hit!

The dress is conservative, but stylish and still manages to show your curves without being too sexy. I received a lot of compliments all night long and felt very good about what I was wearing. If you are a size 2 or 4, definitely get the XS. The small was really big on me.

Nice but nothing special

This dress fit a little odd. It definitely runs large. In my opinion, it was about an inch too long and hit just below the knee. The gathering along the neckline didn't seem to lay right. It was a little large in the waist. Overall I thought it was fine, but I wouldn't rent it again.

Don't rent this.

This dress was very long and baggy around the middle. It was snug in the arms and gave me a disturbing pooch belly-thing. I had to return both sizes - the fabric was also sub-par.

nice color, not very flattering fit

Pros: great color, longer sleeves and length for more formal events. The dress will get you noticed. It is very comfortable. Cons: the material is synthetic that just looks very cheap. the cut is weird, and not very flattering. Maybe I needed a size smaller, but it created this weird pouch across my belly that just looked bad. I rented the other Vivian Westwood dress with the similar cut (the green one) and love both the cut and the material . This one was a disappointment.

I felt like a million bucks wearing this dress!

It didn't fit as snug as it looked on the model, but still looked fabulous! I wore this to a work-related cocktail party and found that it sexy, yet conservative. I was going to wear a statement necklace with it, but it would take away from the subtle details of the dress.

Double Duty: Date Night & Professional Event

I wore this dress two nights back to back. The first was anniversary dinner with my husband, who LOVED this dress. It does hug hips and curves and that is definitely something that defines his style! I wore it again the next night to a professional function. I stood out in red and got quite a few compliments in that environment. I did notice the material felt loose and a bit slack through the stomach as others commented. CLearly, no one else cared or noticed but me. I would not wear again for that, but I was very happy with the dress nonetheless and its two night engagement went very well.
