Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Red Dress Anyone can have a little black dress, but if you want to own the perfect red dress, this is it. When you walk into a room wearing this dress, all eyes are on you! Fits great, looks amazing. I love the fit and flare cut as well as the sweetheart neckline. There is a built in slip that is easily cut out for those of you in a hot and sticky climate (like me). I also did the straps straight through the tabs in the back. I need to be able to wear a bra (I'm a 42F), so neither the halter or the criss-cross would work. The only bad part is what to do with the straps in the back. I plan to sew them in place as soon as I have some red thread. For now, they are pinned. The color is amazing! It is not a bright bright (orange) red, but a little more a blue red. The length is perfect. The challis fabric drapes like silk. I can't say enough good things about this dress. You won't be a wall flower wearing this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best ever! I have a LOT of Torrid dresses, and this is among the best ever. I find ruching to be cheap looking, especially down the center of the bodice, but I’m willing to deal with it for such a great dress. I’d love to have it in olive, navy, and eggplant, as well. One issue, though: I wear a lot of halter dresses, so I was eager to switch the straps to crisscross in the back, using the inner tabs. Problem is, there’s no way to secure them without tying them, and there’s no way to tie them without creating a visible lump (or two) under the back smocking. Seems like a design flaw. Has anyone sorted a workaround without resorting to safety pins? I don’t mind showing off my natural lumps, but not knotty clothing lumps. I’d love to see more things in this true red, please!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cutest dress ever I feel so pretty, like an old-school pin up in this dress. I’ve NEVER felt that way! Skims over my tummy and is easy to adjust at the top for my smaller bosom. Gorgeous color too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous I love bright vibrant reds. This dress fits that description to a T. I love the retro swing look and feel. I also really like the ability to use the straps in other ways. This is perfect for a casual or a semi formal night out. I wore it to an Alfresco dinner with a black lace ruana and got tons of compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RetroChicDevotees Rejoice There’s just something about a Retro Inspired halter dress! Instant glamour, easy to wear, can go from day to night by adding a cute shrug or cropped cardi! Effortless glamour! This dress lays well and (I always make a big deal out of this) it has Pockets!!!! Seriously every full skirted dress should have pockets- especially in today’s world where if your going to a concert or event - your limited I’m bringing in bags and such. Get this dress! You won’t regret it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Longer midi dress Very cute and perfect addition to my wardrobe. It's a longer midi length dress - goes to mid calf on 5'11". Pockets, lined. The halter aggravates my neck a bit, but I adjusted the ties (they are VERY long) into the little tabs on the back and safety pinned them in place. As regular straps they pucker a bit on the front, but criss-crossed they work out just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful fit I love that this dress is a solid color and the red is beautiful. I sized up one and I’m glad I did. I am a size 40F so if challis material or non stretchy dresses fit tight in your chest I would size up because this dress doesn’t have any stretch besides the back smocking. The straps can be worn multiple ways as it has a slot to attach the straps through and you decide how you want your straps and they are also very long. I definitely do recommend this dress i great quality and it is also lined.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could Have Been Amazing This dress could have been amazing. It's a great color, fabric and overall design, but somewhat limited. In the photos, it clearly shows that it can be worn differently than just as a halter type neckline. Upon arrival, I saw that it does have small loops inside the back panel, which I assumed were to assist with this, but there's nothing to explain exactly what they think you're supposed to do with the loops. I thought it was obvious that the long ties could run through the loops and be secured in some way to allow you to wear it like the second example in the photos from the product description page. After trying this several different ways, they all end up with a bow or something else to secure the ties together, leaving a large, annoying lump against your back, under the back panel. After wearing it this way for a day, it was evident that this doesn't work. The ties slide around, droop, come loose, etc. It's disappointing, as I thought it would be able to be worn as shown in all of the photos and due to spinal injuries I'm unable to wear it halter style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Dress Great color, great style... just not what I expected. It's going to require ironing for sure or dry cleaning. I purchased with the intent on making a statement during an event on a Virgin Voyages cruise but will pivot to the beach club instead. Will make for a killer swimsuit cover-up! Seams are poorly placed, but it fits true to size and the color is a rich vibrant retro red!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved the dress, too big I loved this dress! The cut, length, fabric were all great. I ordered my usual size and it was wayyyy too big. I wouldn't have had time to reorder before the event so I was super bummed

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the color! I had high hopes for this dress but it wasnt a win for me. The tone of Red is gorgeous. What I didnt care for was the long length. I think this style neckline goes better with a knee length hem rather than mid calf. The halter neckline is very flattering, however I'm not a big fan of seams that run down the boob. It may look better on someone taller, I'm 5'3" wearing size 2.
