Beautiful dress!
I loved this dress, nice material and wonderful pattern. While I was able to get it in and zip it up, it was too tight in the waist as there is a small band which is not the same material as the dress, thus does not give. It is such a gorgeous dress and wish I could have worn it, but it would not have been comfortable to sit in, because of the waist band. Must add that RTR has the best customer service! So professional and really try hard to make things right.

Great for a bridal shower.
I wore this dress to a bridal shower in South Carolina. The fabric is thick but very comfortable and feels almost like jersey. Despite being close to 95 degrees, I didn't find this to be too hot to wear because it seemed very breathable. This was really a solid dress with a great pattern for a bridal shower. Also long (just about came to my knees) so very appropriate in front of strangers and/or family members. I would have normally worn one size down, but they were sold out. The next size up was a little big but not noticeably.

Tag is a bit scratchy but the material is thick and has pockets. Wore a strapless bra with this. Paired with wedges and a sparkly necklace.

The print on this dress is stunning! I loved the feel of fabric and the length was perfect for someone that is tall. The dress photographed very well. I would highly recommend this dress.

So glad my original dress did not work out and I got to wear this instead. Love it.
Very comfortable and easy to dance in. Color was gorgeous and the dress is very unique. I have a hard time finding dresses that fit my busy but thankfully this worked out. It was slightly tight in the waist but otherwise great.

Beautiful and comfortable
This dress is beautiful especially with a belt. The colors of the print match almost all shoes - black, nude, tan, gray, blue, purple, etc. I would say the dress runs true to size, but a little snug so maybe size up for your back up size.

Great dress!
This was a great dress for a night out! Love that it has pockets. Was a little big on me in the chest, but with a "super" push up bra, that was fixed. Colors were beautiful, I added the RJ Graziano Turq Isle Necklace to lighten it up a bit for spring.

Great look
Dress was well made. Received compliments. Husband says he liked it, but when I expressed concern that it made my post baby body look fat, he replied that "No, it just makes you look big boned." Surprisingly, we are still married. Ultimately if you need a slimming dress, this isn't it.

Fun & flattering
Wore this for my sister's rehearsal dinner. It's a fun print with flattering lines-- plenty of room for full bust and hips, and nicely cinched at the waist. The material was thicker than I expected, but not obnoxiously so.

Great fit!
Heavier fabric, good for spring before it gets too warm. Plenty of room on top. Very cute dress, though there is a lot of material on the bottom half, which made my rear look tremendously large- but you can tell it's the dress.

It fit a little snug in the waist but I think that is because I have been slacking at the gym.

Elegant and comfortable
Fits true to size and like a glove. The scuba description is spot on. However, it's not too tight or heavy feeling. The pattern is fun and I received a lot of compliments from other wedding attendees. I also wore it to a bridal shower the next day and it was a hit there as well. I would love to have this in my closet and very much look forward to renting it again!

Love Carmen Marc Valvo!
I love this designer because there is always enough room for broad shoulders and my 38D bust. That being said it was a tad short waisted for me but still was a fabulous dress. The neoprene material was not heavy although my evening was cool and rainy. The pockets were a nice feature. It was fun to dance in and the hemline hit me right at the knee and I am 5'8". I received lots of complements and may be renting this one again!

Super cute and comfortable
Loved this dress. The scuba fabric is forgiving and comfortable, and it was flattering and pretty. I wore this to work and go tons of random compliments. I will say the zipper is very tiny and hard to maneuver - I had to have a co-worker finish zipping up the last 3 inches when I got to work.

Perfect dress for any occassion!
I love this dress! I have rented this twice now, once for a wedding and once for a baby shower shown in the picture here. It is perfect to dress up with heels or dress down with tights and boots. The scuba material makes it super comfortable and the pockets are very useful. The color on the dress is pretty too and makes it more fun than your typical black dress. If I rent this one more time, I might buy it.

pretty dress but it didn't quite fit.
i wore it anyway; the shoulders were too big on me, so there was an enormous gap in the arms. i wore a cute black bomber jacket with it, so i could still wear it, but without the jacket it would have been a total bust. cmv tends to not fit me anyway, so i wasn't surprised. overall, my outfit got a lot of compliments. i wore sky blue suede stilletos with it; made the outfit. don't wear black shoes with this dress. it will be expected.

wore another dress.
It fit fine, but was much too casual for the party on New Year's Eve. The hem and seams are unfinished, which give it a very casual look. The colours are nice,: I accented with turquoise jewelry, a black belt and short boots, but wore it the next day instead of for the party.

Comfortable and Stylish
I wore this to my 30th birthday party, and LOVED it. It was super comfortable, fit well, was flattering and showed up nicely in photos. I was thrilled with this dress and want to rent it again! I wore the 14, which was a bit snug in the chest and arms, but the fabric has a lot of stretch so it sort of "held things in" in a nice way. Definitely a great dress for someone with a big chest.

I loved this dress! It made me feel so pretty and really flattered my figure.
This dress was true to size and looked great on my hourglass figure. I am 5'2" and this dress didn't overwhelm my frame. The only issue I noticed was that with the smaller sized dress I received, the top created a bulge around my rib cage. I do not have a bulge there normally so I am sure this would be an issue for anyone who is not literally as slim as a model. With the next size up (a six in my case) the issue was resolved. I would also like to say that this dress really highlights your waist and will make an average waist look small and a small waist look bombshell-esque! I would definitely rent this dress again.

My daughter and I both wore Rent the Runway dresses for my son's beach wedding in October.
This picture is not very flattering; the dress looked better than that on, and I didn't look as fat as this picture (I'm pretty sure), but this is the only picture we got of us. I don't think it was the absolute most flattering dress I own, but it wasn't bad at all. The fit is true to size, and the dress is very comfortable. My daughter's dress was also true to size, very comfortable, and flattering on her. This was a fun dress to dance in and perfect for a beach wedding at 2pm on a warm October day in South Carolina. The edges were a little worn and it puckered a bit where the skirt met the bodice, so I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. The renting experience itself was great.

Little snug, cute dress.
RTR had a crazy fulfillment issue the weekend of my event, customer service sent this as a replacement dress for what I ordered. I ended up with 4 replacements + the one I wanted ended up showing up - so I wore them all! The fit on this one was a little snug at the top. The cut overall was nice, the colors were pretty, but I didn't love this dress. Too much going on with the pattern.

This was my second choice dress and I did not wear it.
This was my second choice dress and I did not wear it. The style of the dress was flattering, however, the fabric was much too stiff. This dress lends itself for a less formal event (i.e. bridal/baby shower etc.). Also as in other Carmen Marc Valvo dresses, this has a "deconstructed style." The darts are exposed as well as the bodice seams are visible where it is connected to the skirt. I would recommend wearing a wide belt with this dress to cover that area.

Worn to a VIP opening of a Fashion Museum.
Comfortable, flattering and fashionable. Although this is a traditional A-line silhouette, the material, print and trim make it fashion forward. And it has pockets, so it is ultimately wearable for the modern, working woman.

not for pear shape & edge on the bottom of dress looked unfinished
This is very much for hourglass figure, you can even see most of the women who posted photos of themselves have larger bust and smaller waist (hips don't really matter in a dress like this). The natural waist must be lower. I wear a 18/20 dress at lane bryant. I usually wear 18/20 on top and 22 on jeans. So i'm pear shaped and I have a high waist. I ordered 18 and 20 of this dress and the 20 was loose on my bust area and too tight for my waist. If they had 22 it probably would have fit my waist but the bust would have been way too big... guess this dress just isnt for me. The material was different but it was okay, the edge at the bottom of the dress was not hemmed and that struck me as very odd. Unfortunately, the tight waist prevented me from wearing the dress. I also noticed that being a larger girl in the dress I sortof looked like a little kid. I'm not sure if I would have worn it anyway.

I wore this dress for my sister's bachelorette party.
The dress fit perfectly! The 16W was a little too roomy, so I went with the tighter fit. I usually wear a size 14/16, although I'm currently trying to lose weight. I loved the pattern and would definitely wear again!

Fun Dress. Fun Print. Fun Night!!
This was my first RTR for my cousins wedding. I wanted something classy but still fun and funky. This dress fit the bill to a T! I could have worn the 16W but I did think that the waist didnt have much give (we're jews, so I knew there would be lots of food), so went with the 18W with no regrets. The shoulders had snap-strings told hold my straps back and I was able to wear a regular bra! The neoprene material smoothed over all the little bits no one needed to see. The skirt flared in the best way for photos and dancing - its a little more A-Line in person then the photos. I'm 5'5" and it hit just at the tops of my knees. The pockets were a great bonus! The pattern was bright and fun but not too much for a wedding. I wore it with funky wedges, bold earrings, and a simple clutch and felt like a million bucks. I got complements all night. I would totally rent this dress again, and already have my next two dresses booked with RTR for upcoming events!

A piece of art
Beautiful colors, pictures don't do it justice. Comfortable, love the scuba material and it has POCKETS! Was a bit tight on my rib cage but i should have ordered the 12 from the get go. Easy to dance, drink and eat it. Not as much of a "showstopper" dress, but definitely gorgeous.

Fun fabric, but not great for someone with a large bust.
I was looking forward to wearing this dress, but was disappointed when it arrived. The fabric is a lot of fun - like scuba gear. But the cut of the waistline was far too high for my bust, and the rest of the skirt flared in a way that made me look pregnant.
