I received so many compliments on the dress.
I wouldn't recommend a size down for women with larger chests, I have a small chest and the 2 was so snug. However, I was swimming in the 4. The dress had a hole in the lining, but you couldn't see it, so I wasn't worried about it. I would rent this dress again!

Great dress!
I have rented this same dress now in three fabrics. I am normally a 14 or 16 depending on the cut of the dress, but always take an 18 in this cut. Overall, a flattering dress for my large chested body.

Soft floral fit and flare for a LA Wedding
The floral design of this dress is one I would love to own as a staple dress in my closet. I wore it to a wedding in LA and it was perfect for spring. Fit and flare made it easy to move around in and dance with at the reception. The dress also had pockets! I was able to hold my phone and other small items for upkeep during the night. The only issue I ran into was that the top part around the bust was a bit loose for me. I definitely would consider renting this dress again.

Beautiful print, but not my fave.
I didn't end up wearing this dress. While it's beautifully made, you have to have a longer torso to pull it off (something I don't have).

Fun for a date night
This dress was a little tight in the chest for a 16W. The pattern was fun, but not too over-the-top and was perfect for a NYE dinner date. A big pro - this dress has pockets. I didn't end up wearing the dress because my boyfriend got sick and we ended up staying in.

Fit was a bit snug, but totally worth it! a wonderful dress and a wonderful time.
Had the wear the backup size (10) because the size 12 I was supposed to receive came back damaged from the previous patron and RTR sent a different size 12 dress instead. The dress was a little bit worn (the lining was showing beneath the hem of the dress), but I liked the style of this one better than the replacement, so I dealt with the snugness under the arms and at the waist. Totally worth it! Received many compliments and felt and looked great!

Dress is great at providing an hour glass shape.
The dress fit me perfectly due to the lower half allowing room for people with hips. The print is pretty and bold. I received compliments all night.

LOVE!
This dress is amazing, I'm 5"11 and it was long enough to be comfortable standing and sitting. I wore it to a new years eve lunch and paired it with a black belt. I got a ton of compliments and the pockets are great. I could have worn a 6 but the 8 fit well.

The perfect combo of conservative and bling!
This dress is darling for a holiday luncheon at the country club with suede boots, and can be dressed up with heels, a black blazer and great jewelry for a night out. There is just enough metallic to make it special, and the fit and quality material is very flattering/forgiving.

LOVED this dress for the elegant farm house wedding I attended in September.
This dress was beautiful. The fabric is thick and the fit was extremely flattering. No worries about wrinkling and the pockets are perfect! Very comfortable and I felt great - tough to find for someone with a curvy body shape.

The dress fit perfect. A few strings that need to be trim on the dress. One thing not mentioned in the description and reviews it was pockets. Loved it! Lots of compliments!

Great for an afternoon wedding
This dress runs a bit small. I had to wear the larger size sent. It's strange because there is a lot of fabric, but it's tight at the waist and fits fine everywhere else. Still, it was very comfortable and flattering. I'm glad I rented it!

Gorgeous, but needs a belt
I had a different dress planned, but it was unavailable to ship, and RTR noticed I had favorited this dress for the same event, so they sent it along, with a few other backups. It saved the day! I never know when RTR says the size is a 16W or a 14W if it really is a W cut or if it is just plus sized and is really a 14. I typically wear a 14/16 top and 16/18 bottom, so flared size 16 fits fine, and sometimes 14s. 14W usually works, too, but can be loose. So when I see 16W, I worry it will be huge on me. This fit perfectly, so I think it is a true 16, not a 16W. Fabric is nice - heavy but not super heavy. Substantial. Pattern is lovely. My only "ugh" was that the skirt is attached outside the top with a raw edge, which maybe is the style, but I think looks terrible (see photo). Easily solved with a belt (though not the one I would have chosen if I had more time to plan, but it worked). I got a TON of compliments and I felt great all night. It was a smidge shorter than my preference, but it was fine. I just had to be careful not to bend over!

Dramatic colors
I like this designer very much and have worn long gowns of his before. This dress was comfortable, and the gathers on the skirt did not make the dress overly full. Plus it had pockets! Ultimately I wore another dress that I rented for the same wedding. The colors of this dress are dramatic, but "very blue/black" which would look better on either a blond or a warmer skin tone.

This was my backup dress so I actually didn't wear it to the wedding I was at which was such a shame I loved this dress. Dress was so comfortable stunning material will definitely rent this dress again.

Fantastic and comfortable dress!
This dress was so incredibly comfortable and fun and it has pockets! I'm a sucker for any dress with pockets. I was able to wear normal and comfortable undergarments with it and got lots of compliments. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a classy and fun dress to wear to a cocktail party or wedding.

The dress was comfortable and easy to move in....I danced the night away!
The fabric on this dress was absolutely beautiful. It had a very nice hand and was of a substantial weight. However, due to the weight of the material, this dress is better worn in the fall and/or winter. As for the construction of the dress, I was disappointed. None of the previous reviews document the "deconstructed style" of this garment. The darts are exposed as well as the bodice seams connecting to the skirt. If I had known this up-front, I would have invested in a wide belt. At the time that I noticed this issue, it was too late to shop. Everything I currently had in my closet would not have worked...so that was disappointing. At my event, I don't believe anyone noticed this on the dress, but I felt uncomfortable. The back-up dress that I ordered was also created by Carmen Marc Valvo (Spin in Scuba Dress) and it was constructed in a very similar manner. So I am assuming it is the style of this designer. This was my first time ordering from RTR and I was very excited to try it out. The dresses were delivered in a garment bag, pressed and ready to wear. The return was simple and convenient. I will try ordering again but would be prepared to have a few items on hand (i.e. belts, accessories) in the event I would need to accessorize appropriately.

Classy, comfortable dress
Wore this to a fall wedding. Got lots of compliments and felt stylish yet super comfortable all night. Loved the pockets. Wore it with the Cara Dress Me Up bracelet. I ordered the 2 and the 4 and ended up wearing the 2, which is my usual dress size. I'm thicker through the waist but small through the shoulders, so the waist was a teensy bit snug on the size 2, but the 4 was way too roomy on top. Would definitely wear this dress again - loved it.

Great for a fall wedding!
Perfect for a fall wedding. Paired with black tights and chose to go without a necklace as I think the dress makes enough of a statement. The 2 fit like a glove. I could have stood for just a teensy bit more room for the bust (34B) -- something to keep in mind if you're bustier -- but the 4 was too baggy in the torso area. Loved the fuller skirt and the pockets!

Pretty but didn't end up wearing it
The dress fit fine but the skirt was definitely fuller than I anticipated. I have a short waist and in the end the weight of the fabric overwhelmed me. Beautiful quality and for the right person this would be a great dress.

This dress was perfect for the occasion and stood out among the solid black dresses.
The dress material is heavy and of good quality. The dress ran large for me in the waist and chest area, and a size 4 wasn't available. I took a cream colored cotton tie front sweater and wore it over the dress to cinch in the top and it created a cute hourglass shape. The length was perfect- just barely above my knees. I wore a chunky bracelet and pearl earrings and black pumps. It was very comfortable and no need for special undergarments. I loved wearing this dress! Another great experience from RTR!

great delivery!
I didn't actually wear the dress as it was too tight in the bodice and very very puffy in the bottom. Also I did size up in this dress and it just wasn't right. Overall the dress is very pretty but not for me. If you are very small on the bottom this will look gorgeous. Enjoy!

Constantly received compliments all evening. Loved the cut, color and quality of the dress.
I wore this for a friends late afternoon into evening wedding and I think this dress was perfect. The colors allowed for a nice transition thru the day. The cut was great for my body type as it hid problem areas but made me still shine. The quality of the dress was awesome. The fabric was luxurious and the pattern looked elegant. Really enjoyed this dress and would love to wear again. Got a lot of compliments about how great it looked.

This dress was very lovely. I wore it for a birthday party dinner in Vegas. Would be very nice for an evening wedding ceremony. I am tall and the length was great, even with my heels on.

Dress you can dance in!
Not my overall favorite dress rental but it did the trick! Wore it to a late summer wedding. It's definitely more on the conservative side since its a high neck but loved that I could wear a normal bra with it. I wished it was an inch or two shorter, it hit right above my knees. I normally rent and always have worn size 6 from RTR but the 4 fit better, so I would say it does run a tiny bit large. It was a little tight on my stomach/chest but I preferred it over the 6 since the skirt on it is puffy so I liked the balance. Could dance and 'get low' in this without showing it all! Overall good rental! Recommend if you want a dress that is fun but still covers you up!
