Beautiful color but too long
I should have thought more on this but I just LOVED the color and silhouette. It was too long for my frame, the hem was around my calves and not in a good way. This would be perfect for a taller woman.

Too much going on
This dress is super cute, but it just didn't work for me. I'm pretty curvy and a bit bottom heavy and the seaming detail just over-emphasized it to a point where it didn't look right. My boyfriend commented that I looked like I was ready to bust out of the dress. I would only recommend this dress for straighter women without curves.

Gorgeous color and it fits like a glove.
I wore this dress to brunch with a pair of lack high heels sling backs. It is difficult to get the dress on but once it is on, it fits like a glove. Great color, fit and length. I ordered a size 12 to be safe since I am busty, the dress has stretch to it and it allows for room. Unfortunately it was too loose on me. I wish I had ordered a size 8. It has no zipper so no worries if you are busty.

Fun and flirty, but loose on top
I ended up not wearing this dress to my event because the fit was a little awkward and unproportional. I think this could be a really cute dress on the right person. My picture doesn't look bad, but to get it to remotely fit up top I had to wear a really padded bra. I have a very hourglass shape, so my the dress was pretty loose and baggy through the waist, and really tight through the hips. The size 2 fit my hips and thighs better, but was ridiculously loose through the bust and waist. I think this dress would fit someone better if they weren't quite as curvy. As soon as I started walking around it would ride up pretty badly. I would've have a very hard time dancing in this dress and not tugging it down the entire night. My husband loved the dress and thought it was very sexy and fun, but I would have felt very uncomfortable and restricted. It would have been great for a cocktail party or an event that didn't involve much moving around.

Red hot!
Zac Posen is great! I wish I could afford to purchase his dresses- thank goodness for RTR. This was my backup dress, and I didn't need to wear it, but will rent it again- maybe for a Xmas party. Fitted design is waist cinching without being too tight. I could zip up the 10, but the 12 looked better on my curvy figure. The fabric is thick but a little stretchy. It would be great for travel, as it won't wrinkle. Panels and seaming are very flattering.

Short dress made with very thin material
This dress is a cute design, but it runs very short and the material is very thin (so beware of underwear lines) and a little cheap looking/feeling. I returned the dress immediately because it was too short to wear.

Zac Posen always knows how to flatter a woman's body. The dress is a ravishing color and enhances the best parts of your figure.

Beautiful dress - but not for me
This dress was way too big on me. I'm also not in love with this style. However, it was very well-made and on the right figure, would be very flattering.

Nice Dress!
This is a nice dress, it gives you a curvy silhouette. The material is great as well. It does ride up every now and then for which I think the dress wears beautifully for long midsection gals. Be careful of your undergarments because it will show through.

Interesting red dress
Dress had lots of details. I think it works better for shorter ladies. If you have a tiny waist this dress would work well with that type of figure . Color is beautiful and material is high quality. Curvy women should size up.

Classy and sexy at the same time!
I wore this for my husband's formal holiday party and got lots of compliments. I felt very stylish and put together. The top fit great and the bottom was just a tad snug. I was surprised the 4 fit best - I am usually a size 2. It's a fun dress!

Dress is beautiful, but it's not faltering on the mid-section
Amazing cut, but I can imagine this dress looks great on a size 0 or 2.

Gorgeous Red Dress
This dress was sent to me after I received a white Herve with a visible white stain. The customer service team I contacted was awesome and overnighted this beautiful red dress just in time for my birthday dinner. The dress runs a little smaller than most and I would recommend sizing up to those with more curvy figures. The red is a slightly darker, regal tone than what is shown on the model; absolutely gorgeous and would rent this dress again. Thank you RTR!

Definitely a Head-Turner
I wore this dress for a Valentine's date. My intention was to go a bit understated and the features of this dress seem to offer that. Including the higher neckline, capped sleeves, and just slightly above the knee length; however the combination of the red color and the sculpted form fit drew generous attention, so if that's not what you want . . . beware! This dress seems to run true to size, I normally wear an 8, but went with the 6 as my size was not available, the 10 was too loose. The 6 was form fitting, yet still comfortable. My only concern is that the skirt did ride up a bit after sitting, so the 8 probably would have been perfect. All in all, I loved the dress and afterwards my boyfriend hinted . . . he wanted me to rent it again.

I wore this dress at work and then for a reception at the residence of Swiss ambassador. Was perfect for day-to-evening engagement. Dress is beautiful and fits great.

I rented this for an awards ceremony. It was classy, comfortable and fun without being too formal.
The fabric is very thick and the color is nice and bright. The side zipper can be hard to pull up. It is a very form fitting dress but I figure that very few people have perfect bodies so why bother trying to hide imperfections. Just wear the right undergarments, stand up straight and let the bottom ruffle draw the attention. I'd rent it again!

It made me look great for a speaking engagement!
I wore this dress to speak at an AHA gala with my husband. I loved everything about this dress. I especially enjoyed being told how gorgeous I looked when I walked in the door. The dress was comfortable to wear, snug in all the right places so as to be super flattering. The material felt great. I loved the length and the little frill at the bottom. Wish I owned this dress!

Wore this for a wedding rehearsal dinner.
It fit true to size. the bust was a little tight (I'm a 34DD) but overall it fit like a glove. The only con was it was very hard to find undergarments that didn't show lines.

Gorgeous, but narrow in the hips!
I didn't end up wearing this dress for my work event. It's absolutely beautiful - well made, flattering construction, and quality material. I'm a pretty solid size 12, but I'm also a bit hippy and this was simply too tight in the hips/butt area for me. The dress description states "stretchy fabric allows comfortable room for full hips", which I suppose is the case, if you don't mind a very curvy look for a sexier occasion. If you're pear-shaped, I'd definitely recommend sizing up. But again - a gorgeous garment! I'm bummed I had to send it back. :-(

Very thick material. Focus on the pattern/seams in the middle before deciding on it.
I would be interested to try this in a six to see if it made a difference, but the cut was not flattering on my body type (large bust, small hips). Love the flare bottom though!

I felt youthful and flirty!
I rented this dress for a photo shoot in downtown Memphis with my two adult children. I wanted a great family photo and planned the primary colors to contrast with the city backdrop. This red dress was perfect! Loved the cute skirt and gorgeous red color. It really pops in our photos! The dress fits snugly, so even though I often wear a size 6, I definitely needed the size 8 in this dress.

Fabulous dress for hourglass shapes, but didn't fit.
Unfortunately, it didn't fit. I would size up one to two sizes if you're really curvy. I usually wear 8/10, but I couldn't close the zipper on the 10. So, the 8 definitely would not fit. Fabulous dress...just size up. I would rent two sizes larger next time. This was my first rental. It was a great experience(excellent customer service), but disappointing. I will try once more. Hopefully, I will get the dress I actually ordered.

Lovely, high quality, and vibrantly colored.
I wore this to graduation. The material was very high quality and had a little bit of stretch. If in between sizes, I recommend sizing up one. I received TONS of compliments on the dress. The color is amazing, especially in natural light.

A fitted sheath dress with a lot of interesting and flattering seaming made of heavier stretch mat'l
I wore to this a fundraiser and received compliments. My figure is top heavy with relatively slim hips. This fitted dress is cut for a balanced hourglass figure, so on me it was a bit tight thru the bust and a bit roomy through the hips. I still felt that the hourglass seaming did its part to visually balance the two 'zones.' The fun flounce at the bottom made every step a little party. The fabric was nice -- a bit on the heavier side so it wasn't overly clingy. This was my first RTR experience, and I'll definitely try it again.

Great dress for a formal work event!
This dress was very comfortable and fit great. My only issue was just that it only had a small zipper under one of the arms, so getting it on and off wasn't the easiest thing. But it was a nice stretchy material, and loved the way it felt, even after several hours. Would recommend!

Super sexy with a vintage flair
I wore this dress for a 30s era costume party. Because it is extremely form fitting my usual size would not fully zip, so I was glad to have ordered a size larger for my backup. I still needed help with the zipper, but once I was zipped in, I was so comfortable. I was able to sit, dance, and have fun with no problem. Everyone complimented how pretty the dress was, especially my boyfriend. He has actually requested I rent this dress again for a date night.

Nice Dress, But Didn't Wear
The dress was really nice and had great material, but it definitely ran small. I wasn't able to size up since an 8 wasn't available, and my usual size 6 was just too tight in the hips and mid section, so I didn't get to wear it. I may try it again one day.
