Great dress for a charity fundraiser!'

Great dress. More conservative than some of the other RTR dresses out there. My original dress wasn't available so I selected this one last minute and it turned out great. You can wear a regular bra, which is great! Also very comfortable. Would be perfect for a bridal luncheon or shower. Great Spring Colors, length was about to my knees. Very pretty!

I felt amazing all night

I loved this dress - the fabric is gorgeous in person. I got a ton of compliments and felt beautiful all night. It was light enough for a June outdoor wedding and was comfortable for dancing all night!

Gorgeous print and very comfortable!

I wore this to the Kentucky Derby and was so happy I did! This dress was so much nicer than expected! I thought it would look a little frumpy because it is longer than I am used to (knee-length), but it was gorgeous and classic. The print is amazing and really stands out in pictures. My boyfriend kept telling me he was overhearing people talking about how nice my dress was when I walked by! On top of looking great, the material was unexpectedly light, so it was very comfortable for a warm day. I was so pleased! A+ on this one, RTR!

This dress was so much brighter in person than I was expecting so I haven't worn it.

I could have sized down.

Beautiful floral for a spring wedding

I received this dress after my first dress didn't work. I am so happy my first one didn't work, because this dress was so beautiful and springy. It was very flattering for pear shaped women. It would be great for a bridal shower or day or outdoor wedding. Just as a warning, it is on the long side, which makes it more conservative. For those of us under 35 or so, we may want to hem it up a few inches :). It was also a touch too large up top. I probably could have worn a 0 or 2. Overall, I was very happy with it.

Love the colors and textured fabric!

Picked this for a friends bridal shower. Actually saw another woman with the same dress on. Colors POP. Pockets are great and textured fabric. Highly recommended.

Runs very large

I'm glad I took everyone's advice and sized down. I think I could've been more comfortable in one size smaller, but it was a nice dress. I wasn't expecting it to look so fancy in person! It's very pretty, but I almost felt overdressed for a day at the horse races. I sometimes have issues with v neck straps being too long, but these fit great.

Perfect dress for an outdoor summer wedding

This dress fit like a glove! It was lightweight and comfortable and it had pockets which was also great. There was a little fullness to the skirt which was fun for dancing. I received so many compliments on this dress; the pattern was beautiful and it is gorgeous in person.

Great Floral Colors for Summer Garden Wedding!

Swapped out my initial dress pick at the store. This one has more texture then the model pics show. Great colors and relatively light weight in the summer heat. Got amazing comments from a lot of folks at the event and from photos. It was a little long long (fell just below the knee) for me. I'm normally a size 2 but the 0 fit perfectly.

Amazing dress and amazing fit! Super flattering!

This was a last minute replacement dress and I was so happy with it I wish I owned it! The fit was fantastic, which was a relief since I'm pretty curvy and often have issues with zippers puckering in the back. I'm looking to rent this designer in the future. Also, customer service was amazing in helping me pick out a last minute replacement.

Beautiful Dress

I was unsure what size would best fit. I have a large bust (40 H) and was concerned so I ordered up. It was a little loose in the waist and shoulders a size smaller would have fit a little better. Overall great for dancing all night and I loved the pockets.

Very comfortable!

Lots of compliments. This dress is made of a nice quality fabric and the colors are beautiful. It is conservative and very easy to wear :) I thought it was a 4 but the app says I was sent a 2. I sent it back already so I can't check. So possibly size down

Perfect dress for a spring engagement session!

Beautiful dress! The dress was more light weight than I thought it would be and the pockets were so cute. A fit and flare is always a good option for us curvy ladies and this one was top notch. I'm so thrilled I chose it to wear for my first outfit during our engagement session. You won't be disappointed. Only negative is that the zipper was pretty tough to get up sometimes.

Beautiful colors and pattern, cool fabric, lots of compliments

Rented for a fundraiser. I'm between sizes and this was big on me, but my backup dress was even bigger so went with this and ended up belting it (which looked great!). I got compliments all night by he fabric is almost like a light brocade and basically won't get wrinkles, so it's great to wear all day into night. I ended up wearing it to two more events, a high tea and then a military officer event and it transitioned great. Plus, pockets!

Felt very feminine!

This was a lovely dress!! This was the first time I have gotten all dressed up since having a baby and I felt beautiful!! The dress fit my new curves perfectly, only reason I'm giving it a 4 star is cause it was a little big on my chest (I have an A Cup) other then that it was perfect!

Great style for summer christening

It has those clever little snaps to secure your bra strap on the top of the shoulder. Pockets were a lifesaver. I looked good and felt fantastic in it.

Confident Mother of the Groom

This spectacular dress was extremely comfortable and won rave reviews from everyone, including my son, the groom! True to size and perfect for a winery wedding, I absolutely adored it! This was my first RTR experience and I am sold. My online stylist, Danielle, was so helpful when I added this dress to my order as a backup to my original selection, which as I suspected didn't fit. I have several more events later this year and will definitely turn to RTR for my attire. Thank you for providing gorgeous, affordable style!

I loved this dress! It was a little loose and I probably could have gone down a size but it felt great and I was able to move around. I wore this to a bridal shower luncheon, it was perfect for the occasion and I received so many compliments for the design and overall look! Great dress

Perfect east coast wedding dress!

Loved this dress! I have larger breasts and it wasn't too revealing, very flattering...and it has pockets! I'm also almost 6'0" and it was long enough but showed the right amount of leg. Received so many compliments, perfect for summer/spring! I would rent this dress again! Highly recommend it!

Beautiful fit!

Well constructed and flattering cut, especially for a pear shape like mine. Length was a perfect length, just below the knee (in 5'6"). Colors were vibrant, but fabric was a bit worn. Great pockets! I'm usually a dress size 8, sometimes 10. The 8 fit a bit too snug, so I went up.

Beautiful for spring!

Loved this dress! It was perfect for a spring day event. It was a little tight in the arms, but ok. I'd describe it as mostly true to size. The fabric is a little bit shiny and textured. I got so many compliments.

My promotion celebration

I cannot believe I did not get a picture in the dress! I loved it! It was a perfect spring dress for an outdoor party. I wore the 6 but felt like I probably could have fit into a 4. I'm petite, so the dress was on the longer side just below my knee caps. It looked fine with heels.

Loved the silhouette, but dress was very worn

I rented this dress to take on vacation for a nice dinner out and the fit and comfort was as expected - carmen marc valvo dresses run a bit large so I sized down and the fit was perfect. I was disappointed in the condition of the dress though - there is beautiful lace detail throughout and the dress had quite noticeable pulls throughout. Seems to be an older dress so I wouldn't recommend renting for any event where you want a top quality piece, but if you just like the designer and need a classic dress in a pinch, this will do the trick!

Summery and elegant

This dress was perfect! I wore it to my husbands work event in SC. Formal, but breathable in the heat as everything was outdoors. I didn't need a purse because it has pockets which was a huge plus. I am very small busted and was nervous the neck line would be too low because of other reviews I read, but it was perfectly modest.

Pretty Dress, but Didn't End Up Wearing.

I originally ordered this to wear for my bridal shower. I read all the reviews and the consensus was the dress runs big, so I listened and sized down. I typically wear a size 8 or 10, but I ordered a size 6 in this dress. I'm glad I did because it fit like an 8 typically does on me. So be aware it does run big! Size down! The dress was so pretty. I loved the floral design, but I decided to wear a different dress. I have nothing negative to say about this dress, in fact it has pockets which is always a plus!! I'm 5'6 and the dress went maybe an inch past my knees. It just came down to me wanting a longer dress for my shower, nothing against the dress at all!

Comfortable and conservative

I was very pleased with this dress! I rented it for a traditional wedding in Ireland, where the guests tend to dress up more formally and fashionable than in the US. It paired nicely with my fascinator and hit right at the knee. I ordered a 6 but ended up wearing the backup size 4 because it hugged my waist better. Only thing was it was a bit tight in the arm holes. This is a perfect dress if you're busty / hourglass shaped like me because you can wear any bra/undergarments with it, and it shows just a tiny bit of cleavage.

Beautiful summer dress

I usually wear a 6 but sized down to a 4 as suggested by the reviews. The dress fits beautifully and much to my surprise it's not so low cut that I have to wear a tank under. Beautiful fabric. I will say, however, if you are long waisted like I am, the dress may catch you under the rib cage rather than at the true waistline.
