Was not able to wear, had to exchange for a different style.
Beautiful fabric and flattering style but unfortunately it ran just a tad smaller than the other CMV dress in the same cut so I had to return.

Dress was perfect
It fit like it had been tailored. It is not as shiny as Rent....way pic, no Asian feel. Looks amazingly beautiful. Look is more true to the pic I uploaded than online.

A little loose in the top, a little tight at the bottom, but runs true to a 6.

Beautiful fall colored print!
I'm a huge fan of this Carmen Marc Valvo dress and I rent it in every print. These colors are rich and elegant, perfect for fall. Every size 2 dress runs tight at the very top of the zipper so I usually leave it unzipped a few inches at the top (my hair covers it so co-workers can't tell). Highly recommend!

Great dress for work or a special event (and it comes with pockets)!
This dress is really really gorgeous - its colors are a bit more muted than in the photo, so it's conservative enough to wear to work, but it also transitions really easily into night. As other reviewers have said, the material isn't stretchy so be careful with sizing, especially in the waist area.

Stunning colors
RTR customer service is fantastic. The dress I had reserved was returned damaged so I got an email at the last minute asking me to select a new one. Unfortunately I was out of the country so I was unable to select a new one but they sent this dress and another to choose from. I LOVED this dress. The shape is classic and flattering and the color is jawdropping. It was absolutely perfect for a fall wedding!! Thanks RTR!

Very flattering and looks pretty. However, the cut made it very difficult to move/dance in.
Fit well and looked pretty, but I could not like my arms up all the way (to dance).

Great dress and will rent again!
Gorgeous dress with the perfect shape- pockets are just a great detail. The cut accentuates the waistline. It's fairly comfortable to sit in as well. Will definitely rent again!

Ooh la la
Zip into this dress and you look polished and professional. It looks great on tv, in pictures and has pockets! Cap sleeves are a little constricting and bending down on a bit of a challenge but otherwise, it's a winner!

Elegant fabric and cut, but hard to fit just right
Pattern is not as shiny as shown in RTR original picture, but I actually preferred that. Got many compliments, felt very polished and professional. I probably should have worn a size smaller, but it was not available. It felt large on the top, but tight on the hips and arms. The arms is due to the shape of the dress, which makes it very unique, you just can't really raise your hands very much and it felt a bit uncomfortably as I was typing away on my computer.

The fit was perfect and I got a ton of compliments- always a great barometer on whether or not the dress was a good choice!

The dress was a lovely fabric and would have been perfect for a winter Rehearsal Dinner.
I rented a size up (it was the only one available) because the reviews said it was tight in the rib cage and ran small. It actually ended up feeling a size or two too big though, so I didn't end up wearing it. Length was great though. I'm tall, so sometimes cocktail dresses end up too short, but this one was great. Might try it again some other time in a smaller size!

Great color!
The dress fits a tiny bit small, but not noticeably enough to go a size up. The fabric has absolutely no give though! The cut of the dress is flattering and unique, and the colors are vibrant and gorgeous! For those with larger hips it can be a bit tricky to sit down while wearing the dress (the skirt ends up hiking up quite a bit).

Beautiful Dress
I made the mistake of ordering too small. I have a small waist so I wanted it more fitted at the waist and I ordered a 4. But that also means more fitted at the hips. I will return and order a larger size.

Perfect dress for election night in America!
Gorgeous dress! Beautiful blend of red and blue. My only issue was with the bottom of the dress-- it's tighter fitting with no give, so I had to shorten my stride.

Fresh dress for a fall event
The dress was lovely - great quality, fresh colors, perfect for a fall event. I normally rent a 6 & an 8, but only the 8 was available. I felt that the dress had a tighter fit in the shoulders/chest area. The dress has no give (as other renters have mentioned), so the dress is restricting if you try to raise your arms at all. If you're broader in the chest/shoulders, I'd say go up a size. The 8 was a bit big in the waist, but the tailored cut of the dress, pleats, and pockets kept it from looking too big overall.

Beautiful ! A Classic shape with lovely rich colors!
Fit perfect. In usually wear a 6 and this fit like a glove. So it does run small. I wore this to an awards ceremony that had a retro "mad Men" theme. Modern colors and classic shape made this perfect for me. It's a stand out of the crowd dress so get ready for the compliments. Bonus! So comfortable too!

Wonderful dress for work and great for after work happy hours & networking events.
The fit is just amazingly perfect. It cinches at the waist to show off the curves. The cap sleeves make it feminine, but the highlight was the pockets. it added an element of tulip shaped of the dress. Absolutely beautiful!

I didn't get to wear this pretty dress as both sizes I got were too small :(
This dress runs small and does not have any give! I wasn't able to wear it for my event because both of the sizes I ordered were too small - and they were both bigger than the size I usually wear! With that said, it is a beautiful dress. It's darker than pictured and the blue details on the dress really don't show up that much, but it's a lovely color and the shape of the dress is phenomenal!

Cut is odd and no give
I should have listened to the reviews here but it looked so pretty and unique, I set them aside. The fabric is beautiful and the idea of the cut is cool, but in trying on it was too tight in the waist and too large in the bust. I was bummed I couldn't wear either size I got. There is no give in this fabric so if you don't fit the typical female proportions, it won't fit well.

Pretty pattern and comfy, but runs big
Hi - I rented it this past weekend for an office party and really liked the pattern and comfort. I would rent it again, but would definitely order a smaller size next time (ran big in the waist, but after the application of a few safety pins, it looked fine. Best wishes and thanks RTR!

THE STRUCTURE!!!
Carmen Marc Valvo, creates divine dresses that hold their structure. Its made with 100% polyester which doesnt have much stretch to it, Im a size 2 and this fit true. It helped me with my hips and gave me a little more shape considering my build is athletic.

Great for Holiday event
Fit was as expected. I usually wear a 0 or a 2. The sleeves are a little fitted so be warned it's hard to reach for stuff ... but not really a problem. I paired it with a Kate Spade necklace also from RTR.

This dress was FABULOUS! Got lots of compliments. Fabric was spectacular. Wore it to a holiday party
I usually wear a 6. This was a 6. Pockets were great. Some folks said tight on top. I didn't think so. But I don't have broad shoulders or a large bust. I'm 5'3" and 125 lbs.

Beautiful dress - so many compliments!
When I first tried on the dress I thought it wouldn't fit - the fabric has zero give and was restricting in the arms, so I couldn't zip it myself, but it zipped up easily with help. It was a little annoying to type and bend, but I got so many compliments on this dress at work! It's not super shiny or overtly dressy, so was fine for work. The dress is structured and creates a very flattering silhouette - nipped in the waist, fitted in the bust and hit around my knee (which is a big deal, since I'm 6'1 and work in a fairly conservative job). I'd buy it if I could afford it!

Cute but no give and looks more pink than the photo.
This dress had no give and although I could get it on, it was a little snug on my hips. I got the 14 hoping it would be a bit of a looser fit. I didn't end up wearing it. Also it looks more pink than the photos.

Color in a sea of black on New Years Eve in Scottsdale, AZ.
The 6 was a little tight in the rib cage and hips when you sit down. The 8 gave you room to eat and dance without feeling like you had to wear spanks or keep pulling the dress down. The cranberry and blue colors in the jacquard fabric were really an eye-catcher.

Wore this for a NYE wedding. Dressed it up with a sparkly necklace. Was the perfect outfit!
The dress definitely runs small. I ordered my normal size and then got the next size up as a backup and ended up wearing the larger size. It fits a little tight through the middle and sleeves. The pockets are great though! Overall, loved this dress!!

The dress is too tight through the rib cage to rock this. An inch of extra space would have made this a head-turning number on me.

So many compliments!!
This dress is perfection! It's conservative enough to wear to work, pretty enough to make you feel special, and it has pockets. Everything about this dress is classic and amazing. I'm a little thicker in the back, which made the cap sleeves a little uncomfortable, but not so much that would make me think twice about wearing it. The fit everywhere else was just right. Will definitely rent again :)

Bright, but not flashy!
I am 5'9", 205 lbs, and ordered the 16 with the 18 as a backup. The 16 fit perfectly, although the bust area could have accommodated more than my B cup. Not baggy enough in the chest to stop me from wearing it. I felt amazing and stood out from all the other ladies wearing LBDs. It's classy, fun, and appropriate for all cocktail type events!
