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.

Fits true to size. Could wear a regular bra and no need for shape wear because of the full skirt and smoothing nature of neoprene. The zipper is small and was hard to get up and down on my own - needed my hubby to zip me in and out.

Loved this dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress so much I went online to see if I could buy it somewhere but couldn't find it. The material flowed very nicely, heavy enough that you could not see underwear lines but not too thick. I am 5'6, 125 pounds, 34A chest. The size 4 fit great. I also ordered the size 2. I could have worn that one but it was tighter in the chest than I was comfortable with. I have a boyish figure and the pleated skirt added some nice curves. The dress has cute pockets and even has snaps for you to attach your bra straps so they do not peak out from the dress.

Overall fit: True to Size

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.

Perfect dress for a party!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.

Pretty & Conservative Dress for a Wedding!!!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Loved everything about this dress - the neoprene was comfy and different, pattern was beautiful and fit was great. I would suggest sizing up for a backup size... I almost always wear a 4, especially in dresses that are more fitted at the top/waist but this was ever so slightly tight in the bust/underarm area.

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!

Dress fit very well. Got a 6 and 8 and decided on wearing 8 to have more comfort around the middle since I was driving over 2 hours for wedding. I was not anticipating the raw/exposed edges, ie no hems, but it was beautiful.

This was a fun, comfortable dress for a wedding. The fit was true to size. I wore a bra with the straps criss-crossed in back, as the straps hit high by your neck. The fabric is a nice weight for fall and drapes beautifully.

I loved this dress and will be renting it again. The fit was flattering for me, although a bit snug in the chest/shoulders where I am a bit broader. Still, it was comfortable and I felt great in the dress. The dark floral print was perfect for an evening gala.

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.

Size worn: 4

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.

Ugh, I wish I had a full-length photo of this dress. I was nervous about the "scuba-like" neoprene material, but it was stretchy and comfortable without being itchy or strange-feeling. I fell in love with the colors on the dress as soon as I took it out of the garment bag. The length was conservative on me (I'm 5'1"), but it would be a good length on just about anyone. The only thing I didn't like is the unfinished seam running around the waist. I wore a wide black belt to hide that and it really brought the dress together. Gorgeous and perfect for my anniversary dinner. I got lots of compliments (from strangers too!).

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!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore a size 2 because I have a smaller waist, otherwise I may have had to go with my normal size, which is a 4. It was perfect for a wedding and although I usually like dresses that hit above the knee, this was a beautiful dress with the longer length.
