Beautiful on the model

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for an outdoor cocktail party. I was so disappointed when I tried it on. The top was way too large for me, and the straps were about two inches too long. Because of the way the straps come to to a V at the back, I was not able to pin them and wear the dress. Also, the skirt is a little bit like patchwork with different pieces of triangle fabric sewed together, alternating silk and satin fabric in the same pattern. This style on the skirt made my already thick thighs look even fatter. Also, the triangles on the skirt meet at the lower abdomen, and in certain light, I felt like it made me look pregnant. I think this dress would look good on someone taller or thinner. It was the first RTR dress that I was unable to wear at all due to fit.

pretty and girly

Overall fit: True to Size

It fit well although there was a something strange going on near the belt and seams. it was a very sweet dress and I wound up not wearing it because I wanted something more fun for my event. This is perfect for a derby party/bridal shower type of party.

Super cute, light and Stunning

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Got TONS of compliments on this dress. i just fell in love with it.. I will say, I find this designers dresses run small., However with me, i can wear between a 6-10 depending on dress and designer, so, i didn't really mind having to go up to a 12.. it's all about getting a comfortable fit (i have a very prominent rib cage). Got it for Brunch at a bachelorette party then wore it the rest of the day to meet another friend for a late lunch and my boyfriend for dinner.. I will say, if i rent again, i will remember to wear a bra, that's a bit lower cut, the top of my bra would show every now and then, but mostly because i wasn't sitting up straight. The dress was super flattering.. I just can't rave enough about it. Sadly, i wouldn't have even tried it, if it weren't for my styling session at Rent the Runway in Soho, because i tend to avoid all dresses that have yellow in them, but i'm truly in love with this dress and designer now. Really, women were stopping me on the street to ask me about the dress.

Definition of class and comfort in the summer

I would never have spent $200 to rent this dress, but those LIFE SAVERS at Rent the Runway were so kind as to send me 4 gorgeous dresses regardless of price...overnight...when my first order didn't work out and there were very limited options available for my event-filled weekend. This dress was comfortable, breathable and beautiful. The construction is immaculate. Perfect bit of neckline. Conservative length. I enjoyed wearing it.

Really amazing print and it was so fun and flirty!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The top is definitely larger - so I would recommend this for top heavy folks. The waist is very fitted and the material doesn't give too much. I would recommend this dress for more of an hour-glass figure - those with a smaller waist as I'm pretty straight. But all in all it was a beautiful dress!

top too big, waist runs small

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
The top is for a large busted woman and runs large. The waist of the dress actually runs small - I normally wear a 6 and the 8 was snug - but would have been "wearable" except for the top.

Great dress! Very comfortable, even in 100 degree weather. Neckline was flattering (enough coverage and hold for a a D cup). The movement in the material made dancing that much more fun. Loved it so much that I would buy the dress (if it weren't so expensive!).

Flattering cut

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was not able to wear this dress- I was sent this dress as an additional back up (I had so many issues finding a dress to accommodate my bust- everyone was so amazing who I worked with on the phone). The dress has a very flattering cut, especially if you have a little tummy. I still though had issues with the bust section- I felt like I was wearing a sports bra because it was too small and was compressing my bust too much. The different angles of fabric make curves look great though and the touch of the fabric is dreamy.

Daytime wedding

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress fit perfectly. I am a true 12 but can sometimes can wear a 10 depending on the fit and designer. This fit very nicely and I got a lot of compliments! A slip would be nice but it is not 100% necessary. I would definitely rent this again!

Pretty, flattering, but skirt asymmetry threw me off & seems to be made for older generation

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I did not end up wearing this dress as I thought it was rather matronly for a 25-year-old attending a rehearsal. Also, the bottom of the skirt fell oddly which I didn't find aesthetically pleasing. It is made of very nice material and may be more flattering on someone in her thirties.

I didn't want to take it off!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I got this dress when RTR said they couldn't send me my original order because it had been returned late and in bad condition. I didn't mind though because this dress is gorgeous! The colors are perfect for spring or summer, the fabric moves like a dream (very swingy and fun on the dance floor), and it stayed comfortable all night even though it was hot and humid. Like other reviewers have said, it is probably best for girls with a larger bust. But the length is perfect. I'd rent this again in a heartbeat!

Perfect Dress for a Large Bust

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
This dress is tailored for hourglass figures. It fit like it was made for me! I loved it. There are panels of fabric sewn throughout the waist that hit you just at the right spot to make you look ten pounds thinner. The skirt is nice and flowy and the top has lots of room for a large bust without being obscene with cleavage. This had no give in the waist, so be warned. That's one of the reasons this works so well for an hourglass shape. No spanx needed. I wore a regular bra. Loved this dress.

Actually runs true to size, unlike other Bibhu dresses. Can be worn with many different shoes!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Ordered it in a size 8 because I expected it to run small (Bibhu usually does. I couldn't fit into his Caramel Swirl dress in a size 8 because I have hips.) ) but the flare shape design is very flattering and accommodating for pear shaped girls with hips. This dress this ran true to size. I returned the 8 without wearing it. Unfortunately the size 6 back up size was too loose on top and the size 2 wasn't available. I will probably re-order in the future in a size 2, next summer, or if traveling to a hot region.. It's not an Autumn dress. It's a gorgeous Summer dress with a unique asymmetrical hem line. Very sexy low cut back. A regular bra will not work with it. Versatile dress for accessorizing, for example I would have worn it with pretty turquoise peep toe shoes, to bring out the turquoise in the dress but. black shoes, white or even yellow/gold shoes will also work well. The hardest part was deciding which shoes to wear with it. I had too many options. Will post pix next time when I get the dress in my size.

Runs small

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented the dress for a wedding. I was not able to wear it because it did not fit me and the cut of the dress was awkward. The inseams in the front of the dress hit my stomach and waist in such a weird area, it was not flattering.

Not what I expected

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress is lovely at first glance. The panels were more obvious in person than they are in the pictures online; I wasn't a huge fan of that. The bigger problem, however, was that I'd previously gotten a different Bibhu in a size 2, and that was a touch too small (I should've gotten the size up, but it wasn't available) so this time I went with a size 4. It was too loose at the bust, waist, and hips (I like flowy, not frumpy loose). I'm normally a 2, so I would've gotten a 2 if I hadn't previously worn that other Bibhu dress. The lining was also a bit shredded towards the bottom of the zipper, so it's possible that someone tried to squeeze into this one and stretched it out some.

Lovely dress for a summer garden wedding!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Beautiful dress with a good fit. Nice and as cool as possible for an outdoor summer wedding. It does wrinkle though and the hem is not symmetric. It was slightly longer just on the left front, not sure if it had been hemmed and poorly so or what.
