Stunning red dress!

This dress was magical. It was the perfect look for my 30th birthday brunch! The quality was great and the I felt extremely comfortable in the dress all day. The sizes do run small; I'm usually in between 2-4 but 6 was a perfect fit. I just started my RTR unlimited membership and I am now officially hooked.

Great dress!

Great dress! I received compliments all night! Others say this runs small so I went up a size for my rental and up a size from that for my backup, however the dress was actually a bit big in the end. I would advise to get your normal size and only go up one size from there.

SIZE UP!!!!!!!!

The bodice is extremely small. I have a pretty small rib cage (29 inches under bust) and normally wear a size zero, and a size 2 did not zip up on my rib cage-there was probably a 1.5 inch gap. Otherwise the dress color is gorgeous and the fabric makes it great for a wedding-cotton type blend. Super cute. Note-look at the pictures-there are pockets that have buttons on them. I wasn't expecting them. They're still cute, but definitely means you can only dress this up so far

Cut outs and lace!

I usually wear a 0-2. Wore the 2 (there is no 0) and it was snug but fit really well. I'm a 32-A. If you have a larger bust I would size up!! Beautiful color and the cut outs are the perfect pop of fun

Wanted to buy this dress!!

I loved this dress. It was my back up style and ended up wearing it and loving it so much! I received many compliments on it and it was perfect for the wedding I attended. The dress has pockets, which is awesome! Also the cutout details is pretty, the zipper works fine, and it was nice and fitted in the waist and not too loose. Would recommend this dress 10/10. My only issue was siting in it for a while, your legs are on the lace, due to a shorter lining, and sitting on it became slightly uncomfortable.

Super cute

Unfortunate circumstances meant I didn't get to wear this to a July wedding (my desired size couldn't be delivered and the backup size was too big). Nonetheless! It's super cute. Color borders on cranberry and it has pockets! I worried a little about the cut-outs, but they are tasteful. Comfortable, flattering and well-made. I would definitely consider this dress again (in the right size) for another event.

July Wedding

I really loved the way this dress photographed. I got tons of complements. When receiving the dress, it smelled of self tanner....bad. I had to febreeze and place in the dryer. The dress itself is itchy to sit in. If you have wide hips, the under layer fits tightly and does not give you much wiggle room. The pockets on the lace part of the dress are attached to the inner layer, giving your hips a little extra(unneeded in my case) volume. Bottom line, Would I rent it again.....yaaaaaassssss, it has pockets! I had a ton of fun dancing in this dress.

The sizing is really off.

I rented the dress for a sep wedding. I usually wear 2 or 4. I am 120 lbs and 34C. The dress is so small I can't even zip the upper body part it. If you want to rent it, definitely SIZE UP!

Great dress!

This dress was amazing! The color was perfect, great fit and of course it had pockets. Didn't even need to carry a purse. Lots of complements and a great color. Ended up wearing my backup a size larger because it was a little tight towards the top.

Classy but finally something different!

Beautiful color and perfect for a fall or winter wedding/event. The material is high quality and so lovely. With the dress length being mid-calf and mid-section cutouts, it's a great combo of fun and classy. The pockets are always an awesome bonus! Received tons of compliments and will definitely be renting this one again!! Only "con" or heads up I will give - I am smaller chested so this didn't cause an issue for me, but the bust is smaller/snug as well as around the rib cage. This was something that was a relief for me as dresses are usually big in this area for me but bigger busted ladies this may mean you need to size up.

Red queen realness

I wore this dress to an Alice in Wonderland themed party as the Red Queen and it was perfect! Love the details of the eyelit fabric.

RUNS SMALL!!!

typically i'm a 4, sometimes smaller or larger depending on the designer/style since i have a large waist and bust. i got a 4 in this dress and could not zip it past my waist and not even close to getting it to close around my bust (i'm talking 2-3 inches from closing). the dress is SUPER cute though so gave the 8 a try and it was too big! the 6 was perfect, but i'm rather broad so i was worried it made me look even more broad and i ended up not wearing this. i think this would look better on someone with a smaller bust

Way too small- I usually wear a 0 and the 2 was bursting out the seams. Couldn't wear it.

Too small. Wear two sizes up.

Loved this dress! It was fun while still acceptable to wear to a business formal event!

Runs small! I am normally a 2 but the 4 barely fit! Size up!

STYLIST REVIEW

This is the cutest laced dress! The one shoulder and cut outs on the front and back of the dress give the dress a sexier look than expected but still keeps it classy. I vary between a size 8 and 10 because of my hips but the 10R seemed to fit me best in this style. I would definitely recommend sizing up for backup as the fabric does not have much give in the bust area however, the full skirt allows for a lot of room once past the waist. Paired with a cute pair of open toe heels, this dress is perfect for a daytime or even evening event!

lovely dress

I loved the dress on picture. The only thing is that I received a knee long dress not a midi. and was going for a midi look. So I didn't wear it to my event.

Chest/Waist area runs extremely small. Unfortunately could not zip to be able to wear. Will order a size up to wear another event!

The dress was comfortable and looked great!

The cutout is very simple and not revealing, it adds some fun to the dress. The material is heavy and structured so you do not need to wear a bra. Where it hits on the top of your waist makes it very flattering. Wearing heels made the dress look better, since it does go past the knee.

Very comfortable, has pockets and received tons of compliments!

The dress flares a lot at the hips; but aside from that it was perfect for a rehearsal dinner in Mexico. The lace/color really dress it up but you could easily pair with sandals for a more dressed-down look.

Perfect Dress!

I chose this dress for a friend's wedding in upstate New York in June. June is a tricky time for me because I tend to get very hot, very easily, but this dress could not have been more perfect! I chose the size 10R which fit great and just a bit snug in the chest area - which turned out to be perfect because I'm busty and needed to make sure everything was going to stay put! I wore the dress for the ceremony then to the reception and received nothing but compliments all night - and after when friends and family saw the photos! Even the lovely associate at the Rent the Runway store applauded the choice of dress - high praise! The material was light and perfect for a warm sunny day, the color was the perfect true shade of red, it was very comfortable - much needed for a full night of dancing, AND it has pockets. Truly, the perfect dress. Rent this little number - you won't regret it!

Flattering and fun to wear!

This dress was so easy. The cutouts are fun but not too revealing. The pockets are a huge plus. And the lace was heavy enough that it doesn't pull or tear, but light enough to keep the dress fun and airy. I wore this to an outdoor wedding on a 95 degree day and it was perfect. No bra, no problem. Really easy to dance in and move around. Love, love, love.

Fun red dress - with POCKETS. Flattering and lots of compliments.

True to fit and snug around the ribs. Love the pockets - I didn't need to bring a purse for the wedding. Great for a wedding. The material is nice and sturdy.
