"Never wear anything but red"

I got this dress as a back up when my original selection was not available. I love red but usually don't wear it for weddings. This dress was great and I got a lot of compliments. You would want to wear some type of shape wear underneath because of the form fitting of the gown but it fit great and the color is gorgeous.

Fit my curves well!!

Rented this dress for a masquerade gala, Day of the Dead themed. I loved it, my friends loved it, and when I met with my boyfriend after he got off from work, he REALLY loved it! I never have any reservations about my body nor my tattoos, I loved that this dress showed my tattoos and hugged my body well. Got many compliments!

Broadway opening night

I recently wore this dress to the broadway premiere of "The Great Comet of 1812" and the dress was perfect! It wasn't my first, second, or even fifth dress I picked, but it was perfect for the event. I felt fabulous and received many complements! RTR staff was amazing to work with an so helpful though the entire process!

Duct tapped in there!

I was sent this dress as a backup and boy was I worried it wouldn't look good! The dress is backless so with my 38 DDD I was worried about my sticky bra not working and well it didn't. My fiancé had to duct tape me into my dress Kardashian style. Other than my bra woes the dress look magnífico on me and I felt awesome. If I didn't have Spanx galore on it would have not been as nice, so definitely go for the shape wear and get a good stick on bra!

Lovely dress & very comfortable!

I love this dress! A beautiful brilliant red, nice heavy fabric, and a sexy back! I am 5'9" and the long just barely brushed the floor in flats. You will need a low back or adhesive bra. I ordered the 14L & the 16L. Both fit (the 14 like a glove). I chose to wear the 16 since our event included dinner, and I didn't want to have to worry about holding my tummy in all night. I received many compliments!

STUNNING

They sent this as a replacement for the dress I rented that arrived ripped. I was not going to wear it because I rented a second dress. As soon as I tried it on I felt beautiful in it. It was so perfect. Definitely renting again.

No Shape

Being that my hips and bust are disproportionate this dress did not work. Top was too big if fit in the hips. I figured this would be the case because of the style but needed backup for backup and availability was limited. Wasn't for my body type but the dress is gorgeous color and fabric. Would have been stunning if it fit.

Stand out in Red

I wore this dress to a military ball and received so many compliments! It was my backup dress so I was sort of bummed I didn't get to wear my first choice, but once I put it on and got ready all was forgotten. The dress was comfortable and a beautiful red color. It is definitely a form fitting gown - I wore spanx underneath and was able to go without a bra since the back is lower cut. I am 5'4" and wore about a three inch heel and the length was perfect on the Regular. It is a thick fabric so it was a tad warm but not a deal breaker. Would rent again!

Not really my style. It was chosen for me from RTR because one of my sizes for a different dress got damaged. I didn't wear this dress and luckily fit into the other one because I loved it. But this was a nice backup regardless.

"That dress is made for you" was what I heard all night.

Couldn't have asked for a better red dress to wear at a black tie wedding. Love the low back and the length (in the long) was perfect for me at 5ft 9 with 3 inch heels. Rent this dress!

So easy!

I'm not the easiest size to fit. But for our REMAX International Conference with all the same people taking pics snd posting them every year on the same social media sites, well, you can't wear the same dress each year, right? So happy I gave this site a try. I got lots of compliments on the dress, it fit well and not too snug. I'm about 5'4" and with 2" heels it was fine, no problems on stairs. Might have been a tad better with 3".

Great customer service.

Dress is definitely fitted for women with bigger bust. Size fit perfectly for up too, but too tight around waist area. Unless you are a size 2, spanx are a must.

Excellent quality, quick shipping, multiple $ options!

#glamorous #classy #gorgeous Loved this elegant dress - the dip in the back isn't as traditional looking as the pictures of the dress look on the Runway App which I loved. I'm definitely an inverted pear shaped body and was worried this size would be too tight or too big hugging terribly at my belly. I wore a size small spanx (just above the belly button) and on my short body it worked amazing! I probably should have figure out a way to wear 5" heels but was in a rush helping my sister out for her first big event and grabbed some 4" heels which worked just fine. It dragged only a little. Overall so in love with this gown!

Show Stopper

This dress was absolutely stunning. The fit was perfect, although high heels are a must. I decided to go very simple on jewelry and wear only drop diamond earrings which let the dress really do its thing. Form fitting yet comfortably modest. Would rent again!

Beautiful color and great fit

Pros: beautiful dress, got lots of compliments. As I am busty I had to go up a size which gave a looser fit which was great after dinner. Because I'm busty I had to wear a bra - we tucked the back in to my bra (can't go without it) rather than let the back of my bra show. Cons: length for tall ladies - even though I went up a size I had to wear flats. Not the worst thing in the world but for those are tall grab the Long version (I wore another version of this dress for another wedding and even the Long I was in flats).

Felt beautiful

I rented this for an event but decided to wear a shorter dress. I chose a 10 instead and would wear spandex because the 12 was gapping in the back. I felt beautiful in it. It felt a little looser in the belly area which is wear I kept my weight. I would not need spams but you will need a low back bra or bra stick on's.

Gorgeous dress!

Loved this dress, really felt like a movie star. It's simple but glamorous. The only mistake I made was not to buy a backless specialty bra. I'm a 36E and can't do the stick-on bras, I really need the support of an underwire. I ended up wearing a strapless and just pulling it down in the back, which made my boobs look squished. Again, my fault not the dress's. I'm 5'9 and wore 3" heels. The long length was perfect

Comfortable, Confident, Compliments!

I loved this dress! It is beautiful and was so comfortable. I wore 3 and 3/4 inch heels and it was still a little long. I wore the 2R and got the 4 as a backup. I think I could've worn the 0, as the 2 was a little loose.

ORDER THIS DRESS

This dress was perfect for the formal holiday party that I attended. I am 5'11", and wore 3 inch heels, and the long size perfectly grazed the floor. It's slightly fitted from the top down to the tops of the thighs, then it falls. I'm typically between sizes 10 and 12, and I ended up wearing the 12 because it fell more naturally. The deep V in the back is stunning, and I received compliments all night. Highly recommend!

Stunning!

Beautiful dress. Super comfortable fit and material. Length was great even with 2 inch heels. The only downside is that it is not very forgiving in the midsection. I am small and I had to wear Spanx to make everything look smooth. I also had to insert cups for the bust because my top is significantly smaller than my bottom. Overall, it was perfect with those modifications!

The best bright red dress

This fit great however the back cuts low so make sure you find the correct bra to wear with this so you can't see the back of the bra. Got lots of compliments!!

Loved this dress!

I received a lot of compliments on my dress at our gala! It was comfortable and easy to move in. I wore 3in heels and the 10R was the perfect length. I was able to wear a normal bra but moved the back down. This is hands down the best dress I've rented from RTR and will definitely rent again in the future!

Stunning!

Great dress, comfortable, and received a ton of compliments! I usually wear a size six, but fit well in the 2L (I'm 5'8"). It does hug all the curves with the smaller size, so be aware. The only real con for me was that I couldn't wear a bra since the back goes so low. The material is not cupped.

Beautiful dress for a dramatic engagement photo shoot!

I got it long bc I wanted it to be to the floor as I wore it for engagement pics. I was worried a 2 would be too small but it fit perfect! I probably could've even sized down. Very flattering, gorgeous color and incredibly comfortable!

Very Large on Top.

I've tried this dress in a 16 and 18. I usually wear a 14 on top and 16 on the bottom. The 16 fit well in the top but was too tight across the stomach. The 18 fit in the bottom but was huge on top.
