Perfect fit and color!
So beautiful!! Fit perfectly and got compliments aaalllll night!! Felt like Cinderella! Only "downsides" were there's an underskirt attached that was a little scratchy--it's there to make the skirt poof out--and that the first time I tried it on the straps got all tangled ;) Definitely going to rent again!

I got a million compliments on this dress. The halter and low-back are so flattering!
Order true to size if you have small bust.

Loved the color!
The fit was true to size. I really loved the color and the high neckline, as well as the back of the dress. The bottom of the dress was a bit different for me, there is a slip underneath that ends right above the knee with a material that makes the skirt of the dress flare out a bit. I could have done without this but it ended up being fine.

Great length, looked great with heels. Got tons of compliments!
Fit perfectly on me, runs very true to size. Would recommend also getting a size up if you have a larger waist area as it was pretty snug there.

Great dress. Tons of compliments. RTR should have me as their spokesman. I was like a walking ad.
Beautiful dress, fit perfectly, flattering and luscious.

Great color and cut!
This dress fit beautifully and was a ton of fun to wear. I got so many compliments at both weddings I wore it to. The dress is made of a nice, sturdy material, so even though I'm full chested, it was fine that I couldn't wear a bra. The only negatives are small ones - the straps are thin and made of a sort of slippery material, so I had to re-tie the dress a couple of times throughout the night. Also, the lining has a strip of a thick sort of mesh at the bottom to keep it down, but also to give the dress some shape. It worked really well for both of those things, but the lining is short so when you sit, the mesh can be a bit uncomfortable. I also had to iron the bottom of the lining when the dress arrived because it was all puckered and kept flipping over. Not a big deal, but definitely necessary. I'm also tall (5'7") and the dress is longer on me that on the model - a true mid-calf length. It was so different and fun to wear - I definitely recommend it!

Charity Event
Fit really well but I had to go down a size after reading a bunch of the reviews. The top is made for someone with more of a chest but you can tie the straps how you want. The color was beautiful and I got a bunch of compliments all night. The underlay liked to curl up but I threw a towel over it and did a light ironing so it wouldn't curl and show the white tulle and that worked really well (I would not put the iron directly on the material).

Such a fun dress!
As always with dresses from RTR, I got compliments ALL night! I wore this to a pretty casual Texas BBQ wedding and it could not have been more perfect. It pretty much looks just like the pictures. I was nervous because I've lost a bunch of weight since I ordered the dress, but the top ties so there's some flexibility there. There is a zipper on the back, but the dress isn't super fitted in the hips. The only thing that bugged me was that the lining on the bottom didn't lay flat on one side. It has a stiff edge to keep the skirt out a bit and the edge kept rolling over on my right. I'm not sure if it could have been pressed so it didn't do that, but it obviously didn't ruin my experience!

Incredible dress!
I rented this dress for the Kentucky Derby and Oaks. It's a very flattering dress. The slip underneath was bent and a little odd but it gave the dress a little more flare. The boning in the side was poking out a little which was uncomfortable at times but I didn't notice it much. I got SO many compliments. Everyone stopped me to ask where I got the dress. I don't want to send it back!

Great dress for a Southern Charm wedding!
I loved the lace, color, and neckline of this dress. The size 0 was a little large on top, it puckered in some spots but was not noticeable. There was also stiff under layer thing so that the dress would flare but it was all uneven and kind of odd. I wasn't sure if it was suppose to be that way or not but again you didn't notice the unevenness. It still flared beautifully.

Very comfortable with adjustable straps!
Being 5'2 I was worried the dress would be too long, but the adjustable straps in the back made the fit perfect! The dress was also very comfortable. I loved the material and neckline.

Red hot and elegant!
This is a great dress to wear a spring/summer wedding. Great midi length and sheer bottom makes it fun, flirty and airy. The halter back makes it easier to adjust to your size. I felt like the salsa-dancer emoji (in a good way!)

Amazing spring dress for an outdoor wedding
It was a pretty dress and I loved the color and style. The back is on point and was my favorite part of the dress. I paired it with simple gold studs, brown wedges and a gold purse. The dress itself does not need too many accessories as it does a fabulous job standing on own.

Beautiful dress, so many compliments
I rented this for a Napa wedding and could not have been more pleased. The dress fit perfectly, aided by the back lacing which allow you to customize how it fits. My only small, small complaint is that it bunched slightly in the chest (I'm pretty small chested), which required me to flatten it a few times throughout the night. It was easy to dance in and comfortable the whole night. I loved the stunning shade of red, very bright and cheery and a lot of people stopped me to ask where I got it. Thanks RTR!

Formal enough for a church but perfect for the reception
I was worried that this dress might show a little too much skin for a Catholic wedding in the church, but it wasn't at all. It was a perfect mix of classy but very chic. I received 4 compliments before I even took my seat for the ceremony. The color was to die for. It was exactly how it looks in the picture, super bright almost a bit orangey. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was this a kind of netting material that's underneath of the dress. It's short and it only went down to about mid thigh but it was super crinkled and although you couldn't tell from looking at it with the lace down, it was just a little uncomfortable the way it was laying on my legs. But that was a minor thing, I would absolutely rent this again. The dress was perfect for a spring wedding. Great length, color and overall style. I got more compliments than I can remember. At least 30 people told me how amazing this dress was. 5 stars..rent this dress! I wore it with nude pumps, simple earrings and a gold clutch.

Great color and fit!
Received a lot of compliments in this dress and the color really popped! I rented a size 6 and 4 and ended up going with the 4. The dress is great because it ties in the back and is adjustable so you can get away with the smaller size! I read previous reviews and was worried about the under slip of the dress being a pain. It seems like it's there to give the dress some shape. It's a little itchy but you can't notice it from the outside of the dress. I would definitely rent this dress again was very comfy as well!

So many compliments! One of a kind dress!
This dress was amazing. It was so unique and I received so many compliments! I usually wear a 0 or 2. All that was available was a 0 and it fit perfectly. I am a 32DD- I wore a sticky backless bra. Loved everything about this dress didn't want to return it!

The best dress I've ever rented
This dress fit so perfectly - once I figured out how to get it on! I didn't need to wear a bra and felt secure and comfortable all night. Beautiful color and fabric. Beware of dry cleaning - the person before me had and it messed up the underskirt. Wish I could buy it!!

Feminine and unique dress
Great dress, sad to return it! Slip didn't quite lay flat but I think that's how it's supposed to be, to give the dress more of a bell shaped skirt. Very flattering and great color. Loved the longer length, was something different. Would rent again!

The red pops and the texture is eye catching!
I should start off with saying that I loved this dress. However, I have DD's so it was a little tricky to get everything to stay in place. I wore a sticky bra which did the trick but at the end of the night my shoulders were sore from the strings having to be so tight. The only other con I have to say is the lining on the hem in the slip is plastic and there has been some sort of unfavorable treatment to it so the plastic has worn and causes the slip to flip up. I took an iron, steamer and heavy books to it to try to keep it flat. It worked for a little while but eventually went back to the flip. The dress itself is stunning and I received so many compliments. Luckily, only myself knew of the cons so I can't complain! I would recommend this dress if you have time to take an iron, steamer and heavy items to the slip.

Dress fit beautifully and I received so many compliments. The red is a very pretty color as well. I'm very tall (5'10") and this dress was the perfect length. The perfect choice for a wedding and very comfortable!

Gorgeous dress, so many compliments!
Beautiful neckline, fit super well (highly recommend tightening on the top and the sides for best fit, otherwise the sides flap out a bit). A bit on the longer side for me (halfway between my knees and ankles). Very comfortable to wear all night. The skirt underneath was warped as other reviews mention, but when you have it on you don't notice it! Beautiful color & fabric, definitely recommend if you want to stand out!

Beautiful Bold Red in a Sea of Black!
I wish I could keep this dress! PROS: -36D and didn't need a bra, I did need a buddy to help tie the back though -Gorgeous vivid red color (less Tomato than the pictures, more Fire Engine red) -Flattering fitted bodice with comfortable boning (not aggressive) -Complimented all night long, this is such a unique dress CONS: -The lining was a bit warped, presumably after several goes through the dry cleaner. I tried ironing it beneath a towel (RTR's suggestion), but it was still pretty crinkly. Friends say they couldn't tell -By the wee hours of the evening, the neck straps were a little uncomfortable, but I probably could have just adjusted the straps, but was too busy dancing -One of the loops that holds in the criss-crossed straps on the back was missing. I used a safety pin and no one was the wiser. Love this dress

Loved this dress! It was both comfortable and flirty! You are well covered in the front but the back still gives the dress a very sexy feel. I received compliments all night! Wish I could buy this dress!

Business in the front, party in the back
Got so many compliments! Wore it to the boyfriend's brother's wedding, where I'd be meeting his extended family for the first time. The front was modest but the back still said I was 22 years old, so it was a great piece. I recognized what others were talking about with the underskirt layer, it is funky, but manageable. I left the dress hanging in the bathroom while I showered and let it steam to relax it a bit, and it looked just fine.

Loved the Low Back!
I loved the back of this dress! Did not like the slip under the floral lace section though.You can tell it had been used a few times as the bottom of the slip did not lay flat and it was uncomfortable on my legs when I was sitting down. Other than that, the dress was great!

Perfect dress for a summer wedding.
Could have worn the 4 - but was worried of overindulging at the wedding. I think the 6 was a little big but either could have worked. Got tons of compliments. Loved the length and open back ! Lining came twisted (probably due to dry cleaning ) had to iron that with a towel to flatten it so I could wear the dress ! Heads up!

Wore this to a friend's wedding and loved it! So comfortable and got so many compliments!
The dress ran true to size. The straps in the back allow you to adjust how tight/secure you want the dress. I wore stickies, because the back is open. I absolutely love the color and the delicate lace. It was a great color that popped, especially for a May wedding. It was a great A-line dress, not tight on the hips. I would recommend the dress, I wish I could have kept it!

Flattering fit, great color
This is a great alternative to the lace Self Portrait dress that seems to be the wedding uniform this spring. Was slightly baggy in the chest for me (I'm a 34A/B) but I'd wear it again in a heartbeat. Great color and lots of compliments!

Loved the color for a summer wedding
Great fit and beautiful dress. Biggest concern was the solid under piece on mine did not lay flat. Not sure if this is intentional or a defect but it made it ride up occasionally throughout the night. still got many complements and it was comfortable / breezy for a summer wedding.

This dress is BEAUTIFUL!! Highly recommend it!!
I received so many compliments on this dress! As this is backless, I was a little afraid of not being able to wear a bra as I am on the bustier side but since you can adjust the straps in the back I felt "strapped in" and very comfortable throughout the night. I was also a little worried about the length since I am 5'5" but once I put on heels it worked out really well! I plan on renting this dress again in the future :)
