Comfortable and put together for a late summer outdoor wedding!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress fit well - both the 8 and 10. I went with the larger size as it looked a little better. The scuba material is great. The dress was incredibly comfortable and super flattering. Fun to dance in for a wedding. Fit a larger bust well. I felt very put together and the painted floral print felt special.

Felt pretty, loved the pockets, great design.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Size two fit like a glove, size four was a little bit looser around the waist. Dress was heavy because of the fabric but it didn't feel hotter or less breathable than other material. The design and color is beautiful! And it had pockets, always a plus. The only thing that I would keep in mind is the weight of the dress but it didn't bother me personally.

I loved this dress. The colors were beautiful and the fabric was soft and very comfortable. I wore it to a daytime wedding and it was perfect for an event in September. It fit perfectly. Use a strapless or crisscross strap bra so the straps don't show. Also it has pockets, so that's a plus. It was a fun dress.

This was my first rental and i could not have been happier. The dress fits true to size. Carmen Marc Valvo cuts for a "real" woman with curves. The dress is made of neoprene so it has a snug fit. Snug, but not tight. I loved that the dress gave me more of a defined waist. The dress was comfortable. Loved the pockets and the full skirt. I paired the dress with a statement necklace and nude heels. Got lots of compliments at the party!

Lots of compliments while being totally appropriate for the event!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is a somewhat heavy scuba material, but it was comfortable to wear and the cut kept me cool. It was perfect for a late summer/early fall wedding. I loved the print and cut, and the length was perfect for anxiety-free dancing! The material had some stretch. The 2 was only slightly snug at the arms: not enough to be uncomfortable or to look bad. The pleats at the waist added just a tiny bit of bulk from the side but it was still a flattering cut. I got several compliments on the dress but still felt completely appropriate for the event. Everything about the rental was smooth and easy. I keep telling everyone I know to use RTR!

It was so easy to rent. Ease the stress of have time to go shopping.

Overall fit: True to Size

I love the dress over all. Wore it to a evening wedding at a winery in NorCal. It was just the right amount of formal for this event. The fit was perfect and true to size. I could of wore the 8 it was a little snug on top but not uncomfortable while I was trying it on. I was just worried that it would get uncomfortable later in the evening when we started dancing. The neoprene material will keep you warm so if you are going to a day event outside in warmer weather, keep that in mind. The only thing I didn't like about the dress was the raw unfinished edges on the dress specially were the skirt meets the top. The pockets were awesome fit my iPhone perfectly. I recommend wearing lighter color shoes like sliver or nude. Black shoe makes you and the dress look heavy.

I wore this with a black moto jacket and loved the overall look. The dress speaks for itself so you don't have to do too much with your hair or accessories which is nice :) I didn't expect it to fit perfectly so it's okay that it didn't. The fabric was very light and comfortable. I do feel like it wasn't the most flattering. I am very curvy and I feel like it made me look bigger on top. I loved the print and overall was happy with my first RTR experience!

Great dress and very comfortable. I love the print and the material. I was worried it wouldn't be roomy enough in the top but my normal size was actually too big and I'm a 36DD. You will definitely want to size down in this dress. I received a lot of compliments and someone that I see at a lot of events told me that I ALWAYS where the perfect dress! :-)

I rented this dress for my daughter to wear to her Homecoming. She loved it! She's only 14 and this dress looked amazing on her. She usually would wear an 8 but the 6 was a perfect fit. She attends catholic school and the dress couldn’t be more than 1 inch above her knee, she's 5'11, and it was the perfect length. We will definitely be renting more formal wear from you guys again!

I'm a LBD girl, through and through. But when a late summer wedding invite calls for "Garden Formal," you just can't NOT do florals. This dress is florals with an edge - the neoprene fabric makes it a bit more cool instead of just too sweet. The dress is true to size - I can imagine it being a bit on the long side for anyone under 5'6"ish. It was a perfect choice for the event.

Pros: Beautiful floral dress that is also stretchy & comfortable! Con: Extra thick fabric.

Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this to a thesis presentation. The fabric is very comfortable but very thick. It is very well made and the pattern is to die for! Got so many compliments on the fit and pattern! Luckily, I rented this in December so it was about 30 degrees outside and the thickness didn't bother me. I would not recommend for spring/summer, or any outside event. I rented the 4 and 6, but ended up with the 4 (my usual size is a 4). I'm 5'10 (all legs) and the length was still at my knees, which was appropriate for this event.

I loved how this dress was warm, flirty, and fun. I wore it with a chunky blue necklace, black heels

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was roomy but the skirt being attached at the front made it really look like I had a slim waist in comparison to my hips. The top does a killer job hiding the chicken fat parts over my bra but under my arms, so thanks for that! The dress is very modern, with a vintage chunky necklace i felt very hip. The dress is unlined but because it's a heavy, heavy stretchy fabric (not neoprene)you don't need a slip over tights.

Lovely luncheon frock.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
The fabric and pockets were great. I could definitely tell this had been worn before, as the mid section was fairly loose on me, which for a size four, typically is not the case... It was a little stretched but not so much that it didn't fit. I got some very nice compliments about the dress, it was perfect for looking well put together - but not "stealing the show". It was a bit longer than I expected. However I did LOVE the clips that keep your "every day bra" in place and out of sight!!!

Best dress for my shower

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
LOVE this dress! I wore this dress to my bridal shower and could not have been happier. It runs slightly large, I rented a size 8 and it was a little big in the waist but overall looked great; I got tons of compliments! Nice heavy material (polyester, might be too hot in summer!) that kept its shape. This was actually a backup dress because the original dress I ordered wasn't fitting quite right. Customer service was awesome. I called them the Friday I received the first dress, let them know it didn't fit properly and was told I could pick another dress and they would have it to me by the next day!! I am so glad the first dress didn't work out bc this one is so much better!

It fits true to size, a little long - but it was fine since I wore tights. Though it is sleeveless, the nice heavy material made it appropriate for a late winter bridal shower.

Amazing dress that fit so well!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress was extremely flattering. It covered the areas I am a bit self conscious about. The length was perfect for an end of February wedding. It was long enough (I'm 5'8 1/2) and hit me just above the knees. The material was so comfortable, and it didn't bunch or ride up at all! I would recommend this dress for ladies who have some hips and a butt. It covers it all and gives you a great figure. I also rented the mint colored necklace that was a statement piece that went great with this dress!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The size 10 (my normal size) fit, but with the pleats at the midsection, it accentuated my stomach, so I went with a size 12. The material is unusual for a dress, but was great for a fall wedding that was a little chilly. The length of the dress and stretch of the fabric made for a very comfortable evening.

Kentucky Derby Dress for Day Party

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress fit very well. I gained a bit of weight lately so I was happy I had the 4 to wear. I'm maybe 5'4', 140 lbs right now. There was still room to move in the four, but since the back zips all the way up the back it ended up being a really comfortable size. The dress was a lot darker in person than it looks in pictures. I thought it was cute and I definitely liked the dress, like the cut and the fabric, but I wouldn't rent it again. I try to rent items that I wouldn't purchase and keep in my closet to wear again and this was just too normal for me!

It has POCKETS! I ordered this dress last minute, so I was only one of my sizes was available. I am normally a 6 or 8, and ordered a 6. It fit perfectly. There is no stretch in the waistline (even though it's scuba), so I would recommend going up a size for your backup.

Danced the night away in this dress.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was a perfect fit. Based on what other women had said about the fit, I was able to order one size and it was exactly right. The "scuba" fabric was very comfortable and didn't wrinkle when packed. Though the pattern is interesting and pretty, it's just muted enough for my taste. I was told that I looked "hot" in this dress. I appreciated the way it fitted my bust and waist while camouflaging a bit of a tummy.

Loved this dress! So fun to dance in!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
The size 6 fit but i had a little more room in the 8. Not a huge difference in the size, but the 8 had a little more give around the waist so felt it looked better in the 8. This dress is very flattering to your "arms". The pockets were perfect and came in handy because i wore this dress for a work event "gala" and was the event planner.. It was work appropriate, but also made me feel very "pretty". The theme for our gala was "Tropical Magic" so this dress was perfect! i LOVED dancing in this dress because it looked so pretty when you "twirled"! The nude shoes with black ankle straps completed the look perfectly!
