Ill-fitting up top

The dress was a beautiful color, but somewhat ill-fitting for a person with a short torso. Loose and baggy up top (I'm not small chested).

SO BEAUTIFUL

I loved this dress so much, I'm 5'2' and 110. I was long but I wore heels so it had a tiny train that was so pretty, it was a little loose in my waist but that's where I'm the most thin so that was expected. It fit real well!

SHOW STOPPER!

The silhouette of this dress is gorgeous. I am generally a size 2-4 and went with the 2R. It's very form fitting and hugs in all the right places. I was able to move around comfortable. I wore a thin back-less bra with this dress. I received many compliments on the fit and color. I was so sad to drop it off at the UPS this morning, The dress was stunning.

This dress was stunning and made heads turn!

The fit was perfect on my lower half, but a little big on top. I have a small chest, so this was expected. Still looked stunning on. I wore 5 inch heels and it hit perfect.

Great dress that I would rent again.

The fit was great and had stretch so it laid perfectly on the body. I would size up as it is very form fitting. Great for girls with hourglass figures as it accentuates your curves. I couldn't wear a strapless bra as it came up too high and underarms are cut low. Overall, the dress was perfect for a black tie affair.

Glamorous dress, flattering fit

First RTR dress that's ever worked for me! Rented this dress for a formal black tie wedding and it was a hit. I got tons of compliments throughout the night. Simple, yet very glam. Flattering cut that makes your curves look great. I'm 5'3 and the dress was VERY long. I wore 4 inch heels and the dress still slightly dragged on the floor but wasn't a big deal, still looked great.

Classic sophistication and eye catching

Easy elegance in this dress. Super comfortable and flattering to a curvy athletic figure. Got many unsolicited compliments all night! I am 5'5" and the regular length was perfect with 4 " heels. Ordered it the day before my event and it was delivered right on time . Wish I could keep it.

The dress was perfect! I thought it might be too tight at the hips but it ended up having stretch.

Make sure to wear at least 3" heels, the dress has a little bit of a longer length in the back.

I wore this to a gala and it was perfect for the event.

The dress was beautiful and comfortable. The color is stunning. The only issue is that the lining caused the dress to twist slightly and the zipper down the back pulled to the side. I had to adjust the dress a couple times during the night to keep it all lined up straight. However , I got a ton of compliments on the dress.

I am absolutely in love with this dress. It fit like a glove and made me feel beautiful!

It fits tight to your body but has stretch. I got a long because I am 5'7" wearing 4" heels. It was the perfect length and I didn't trip over it at all. Highly recommend this dress.

Sexy Dress

I wore this to a black tie gala and received so many compliments. The dress is incredibly form fitting but fits like a glove. It does not hide anything, so if there is anything you may want to cover up, this is not the dress for you. Overall I loved it and was asked where I got it at least 5 times throughout the night. Rent this if you want to turn some heads!

Fit for a QUEEN, my daughter was on Homecoming Court 2014. She WON QUEEN in this gown!

She is 17 years old and a volleyball player, 6 feet tall approx 160 lbs, definitely a tall athletic build but with a butt. The dress was just long enough and she wore flats. It was a little tight in the hips but she was wearing it to be presented at halftime and so she never sat down in it. It may not be comfortable if you were going to do a lot of sitting. The halter style neckline definitely calls for your hair to be worn up as you can see in the picture I posted. This dress would not be good for busty girls as there was not a whole lot of room in the bust. She wore a strapless bra. I would definitely use RTR again as it was very easy.

Did not end up wearing because it was a little too plain and not very flattering.

I knew this dress was going to be very simple, which is exactly what I was going for, but I imagined it fitting to my figure based on the picture. When it did not, it did not feel very special and overly plain. I have a thin waist and wider hips. While the hips fit well, there was too much fabric at the waist which made it unflattering. My girlfriend also tried it on to hopefully get some use out of it and had the same problem.

Nothing is better than feeling beautiful, sexy and CONFIDENT in your dress.

I absolutely loved everything about this dress! I'm 5'9 and curvy ... small up top, bigger lower half. This dress complimented me in every way possible. Great material and comfortable. No wires to deal with, no static materials, no complicated zippers. What you see is what you get. I wore it to the Marine Corps Ball and got compliments on the dress all night. My only suggestion is to wear a spanx piece under the dress. Because the dress is so 'straight' it does show every single curve ... The stomach area can be a vulnerable area. Spanx saves the day! Great dress made for a great night :)

Dress was made me feel great!

My regular size was small in the hips, so I went up a size & it was great! Dress is very comfortable and was long. I had 4 inch heels and the back still touched the floor. I loved the cut/ style of dress. Very true to the picture. My husband loved it! I 'd definitely wear it again!

Lots of compliments and felt confident.

The 6L and 8L were unavailable, so I opted to size up to the 10L. I am curvy and the hip area fit really well as there's a bit of stretch to the dress, so it didn't completely swallow me up. The top was a bit loose for my 34B chest and required a lot of double sided tape to make it work. I think this dress would work best on a true hourglass body type or someone who is straight and narrow. I wore 4in heels and it was perfect length.

Red Hot!

This dress was absolutely stunning. I wore this gown to a Marine Corp. Ball and received so many compliments. I ordered a size 6R. I am 5'6, 135lbs, with an athletic body. I loved this dress mostly because I do not have a large chest, so this dress complimented my other features. It was a little loose around my chest, however, overall it fit beautifully. I was absolutely thrilled and felt like a princess! It was also a little long, however, with 4inch heals, it didn't bother me. I was able to walk gracefully and even get down on the dance floor. I highly recommend this dress!

gorgeous show stopper

Loved this dress as a backup but ended up not wearing it because it was a bit too risqué for the conservative event I was hosting. The dress lays beautifully and the material is rich - zipped up easily and my girls who were getting dressed with me told me I looked like Jessica Rabbit in it - I took the compliment! :)

Loved this curve hugging, comfortable dress!

I rented this dress for a black tie family wedding. It was comfortable and form fitting, and just the right length for me. I'm just under 5'4", I usually have to buy long dresses in the petite section or have my dresses hemmed but this dress was a great length on me, most likely because it rode up a little due to my curves. The fabric is breathable with just the right amount of stretch to hug your curves. I do have a little belly and it was visible in the dress, but I still loved the dress and think that i looked tasteful. I also didn't have to wear a bra, even though i'm a 38DD i hate wearing them, with this dress so it was so easy to wear and very comfortable!

Perfect dress for my black tie holiday wedding

Loved this dress. I wore it to a black tie wedding the weekend before Christmas. The color is a perfect red. Looks just like the picture. If you're between two sizes, I would recommend going with the smaller size. I usually am right in between a 2 & 4. I went with the 2l because the 4l was a little big and unflattering in the mid section. I'm 5'8" and with 3.75in heels the length of the long was perfect. Loved this dress. Would definitely recommend!

This dress is gorgeous.

I wore this dress to a winter wedding in CA. I received so many compliments. The color is so vibrant, so I wore simple drop earrings and it was perfect. I'm 5ft 8in and wore about 2 inch heels and the length for the long was perfect. It would have been too short had I not gotten the long. I usually wear a 4 but ended up wearing the 6L - it stretches but the 4 was too tight. I wish I could have kept this dress - I'm obsessed.

I was very pleased with my RTR experience. The dress came on time and the return process was so easy

This dress was absolutely stunning! It fit perfectly but warning, if you are trying to hide anything at all, that's not happening in this dress. I'm 5'5 and it was the perfect length once I had my heals on. I wore this dress the a black tie wedding on Nee Years Eve and was complimented all night. I would highly suggest renting this dress if your thinking about it at all :)

Gorgeous, classic. Definite show stopper

I generally go for a size 12 and fabric that flows and hides my many rolls more, but this stretched and formed to my body to reveal the best side of everything. I received tons of compliments at the annual holiday party we go to.

This dress was BEAUTIFUL! Great color and very flattering fit!

I am 5'11'' and the length was fine with four inch heels (it really hit right where it hits on the model). The dress was gorgeous and I still felt special in a surprisingly large crowd of red dresses!! It was very flattering and I loved the neckline and back. This is a great dress to play around with accessories. I felt appropriate and comfortable and had a fun night! It was very sad to send it back!!

Dress runs true size. I loved the fit, not too tight not too loose, it just falls nicely on your body . I ordered regular length and it was perfect for me, I'm almost 5'7" and wore 4 inch heels. I got tons of complements, I 'm dark skin and color was great. Perfect rent.

This dress is very flattering and comfortable. The stretch in this dress is key, easy to move in.

Fit is great, except the dress is very LONG. I wore a size 0, am 5'6 and had on 4 inch heels and the back of the dress still dragged on the floor. Last minute had to stress and find fashion tape. Highly recommend purchasing the fashion tape with this dress if you are under 5'6.

I wore this dress for a semi-formal event, and loved it!

This is a gorgeous dress! It really shows off your shoulders and your curves, but doesn't leave any room for error. It definitely runs small!!! I rented my regular size, plus one size up. But it was so snug, I had to get an additional size up overnighted to me. I praise customer service for helping me get it here on time. And it was very flattering and elegant to wear. But I highly recommend sizing up with this dress. I normally wear a 2R, but the 6R fit perfectly. Great length, beautiful through the shoulders, waist and hips. I absolutely loved it!

Showstopper!

I really wanted to keep this dress! I wore it to the GRAMMY Awards, and it was absolutely perfect. It is simple, classic, really comfortable and SO stunning! I'm 5'7" and I was a little bit nervous about length (I would normally order a 4L) but based on the other reviews, I ordered the 4R and I'm so glad I did. I wore 4" heels with the dress. If you are any taller than 5"7" and plan on wearing heels 4" or more, I would definitely consider ordering the longer length in this one, as it was just right on me.

Classy Red Dress

I loved this dress. It's perfect for any formal event. Sexy without showing too much. I wore the size 4L. 4 is my normal size, so no issues there. I'm busty, so it was a bit tight there, but not too tight. I almost didn't go with the Long size based on previous reviews, but I'm glad I did! I'm 5'9 and wore 3 inch heels and the length was perfect for me.
