Great dress for so many reasons!!
I ordered this dress for a November baby shower in Louisiana. I ordered the 14 and the 16 and I’m glad I did! The 14 had the perfect amount of a snug fit. The only reason I went with the 16 instead of the 14 is because the midsection-seam does not have as much flexibility as the rest of the dress and I knew I would be sitting and eating throughout the event. The 16 as lose at the top and obviously a little longer but, because of the event, I didn’t mind. If it had been an event with mostly standing I would’ve totally gone with the 14. The scuba fabric is thick enough to keep me warm on the cool day but breathable enough to where I never felt hot. The fabric feels AMAZING on the body and the pattern looks just as amazing. I paired it with a black waist belt to break up the fabric a little. This was my first RTR purchase and I couldn’t have been happier!

All around awesome dress!
Not only did this dress fit perfectly, but it was so comfortable and was a gorgeous color/pattern as well. One thing I really liked about this dress was the fit/flare style - I was able to wear a regular bra and did not need any kind of Spanx or special undergarment. Another thing I appreciated about this dress was the length. I am 5"10," so often times have trouble finding a dress that is an appropriate length on me. The scuba material was really comfortable and not too heavy, but also not too lightweight for a fall wedding. I paired the dress with a pair of royal blue heels, simple earrings and a few stacked bracelets. I am not one to rent the same dress twice, but would seriously consider getting this one again! I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone looking for a comfortable, but cute dress for an upcoming event.

this colors are so vibrant!!!
previously, i had rented a different dress from this same designer in the same size, and this one fit a little bit smaller. The waist was tight on my ribcage with NO give. However, the fit and flare style was very complimentary, and the colors are amazing!

Cute dress for any occasion
All around the neckline, under the arms, and waist the material appeared to be frayed. I did not end up wearing this dress to my event because the size sent didn't fit so, I traded it in at the Flatiron Rent the Runway store. However when I brought up the frayed look to the representative, she said that was the style of the dress. I did not expect that based on the photos online and the past reviews, so just be warned!

This was part of my first RTR & the first time I've worn neoprene. I wore this to work & got a lot of compliments on it. The neoprene was very flattering. This dress looks great with heels, flats & sandals.

Very different and unique
I am in between sizes, usually 12 or 14 (I'm 5'3" 160lbs 36D) This dress was sent to me as a backup when my original dress became unavailable. The dress material is different but kinda cool in the scuba material. It has some stretch but not in the waist where the seam is. Fit on me was a tad tight, but still wearable (it did get a little uncomfortable after eating dinner and drinking!) I loved that the dress was something totally different than what I would haunt wear and more fun than a plain LBD.

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.

TINY waist and too short
I ordered this as a backup dress for a wedding. Thank goodness my other dress fit, because this one was a hot mess! I've worn other "scuba" fabric dresses before and loved them, and thought this one would be similar. The print was okay, but not as pretty as the pictures -- more muddy browns than blues. The waist was TINY, with absolutely no give. I normally wear a 14/16 because of big hips and big chest, but had to hike this 16W up around my natural high waist to even attempt to have it fit. Then the chest fabric ballooned out in the front and the back, and the skirt only came down to mid quad. Looked awful. Would not rent this particular dress again.

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.

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.
