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.

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.

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.

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.

Gorgeous dress perfect for a mountain wedding!
This dress fit true to size. I normally wear an 8 but I can do a 6 in "fit & flare" style dresses like this one. I paired it with a sparkly belt from Anthropologie and statement earrings. The colors were gorgeous for late summer/early fall. Docked one star just because the neckline showed a bit of wear. Loved this dress!

Beautiful, Versatile & POCKETS!!!
Received so many compliments on this dress all day and night! Paired it with Rebekka Minoff mini & flats for day-time in office, then swapped into some heels & added bling bracelet for evening event. Best part - it has roomy deep POCKETS so I didn't need to worry about carrying around and juggling a clutch while eating hors d'ouvres in the evening. The fabric has a comfortable weight for spin flares to the skirt. I wore the size 12 which was perfect for a larger bust but was a bit baggy at the waist. This wasn't a problem tho, as the dress is well tailored to be slimming at the waist so there was still plenty of shape to it.

So comfortable!
A size smaller would have had a better fit for me, but with the stretchy material of the dress, it wasn't obvious that it was big. I cinched it with a black belt at the waistline and paired it with black wedges for work. I loved the length and the cut at the top.

Fabulous with my favorite heels! Uh uh, honey, lay offa them shoes..
Beautiful fabric, great fit. I loved the raw edged seams, and got tons of compliments. Yes I'm as big as I look... The dress works great with wide shoulders and for tall girls. Worn with a blue Kate Spade and Limited edition blue Disney Cinderella heels. I wore this to church but works for almost anything due to the luxurious print of the fabric.

"The cutest dress I've ever seen in my life"
I got this dress from RTR Unlimited and wore it to work a few times. The fit was great, the fabric was beautiful, and I loved the pockets. The director of my agency walked by and said it was the cutest dress she had ever seen in her life- that sums it up pretty well!

Comfortable and Perfect dress for a Rocky Mountain Wedding!
Fit like a glove on my curvy figure, no issue with side gaping at the sleeves as typically do w/ a sheath cut top. I wore a strapless bra since the top cuts in. Very comfortable material, perfect for a wedding that was in the mountains with cooler air and then in an air conditioned ballroom. The print is like a real life water painting of wild flowers, which makes the dress look luxe and fit in perfect with the theme of the wedding. Overall another successful wedding dress rental from RTR!

High waistline...
The material is one of my favorites. I've ordered several pieces made of the scuba material, and ever one has been a winner. For someone with a much higher natural waist, this probably would have fit perfectly. Unfortunately for me, with a longer than average torso, it just didn't hit right. The coloring and pattern are beautiful. It didn't feel heavy or clunky. I highly recommend sizing down. I'm typically and 8 and could have easily fit into a 6 or 4 with the feel of stretch the fabric offered. In the case of sizing down, though, I always recommend getting full body shaper from Spanx. The material has a tendency to show every bra line.

LOVED this dress!!!
Pictures just don't give this dress the credit it deserves! I wore this dress to a wedding in Milwaukee. I LOVED IT!! It fit so well, didn't look too conservative or flowery, and was super comfortable to wear. I WILL def rent this dress again! Size 2 fit me best...maybe even a little big & so I didn't try on the size 4.

Out of my norm, but made me feel beatiful
I couldn't find the perfect dress anywhere, until I found this website. Went to RTR store to try on dresses, since I'm bigger than my norm. I wanted something out side of my normal black dress and I would never purchase a floral dress, but this worked fabulously. Plenty of compliments.

Loved this dress! So fun to dance in!
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!

Danced the night away in this dress.
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.

I loved this dress. Fit was good. Fabric was both elegant and comfortable. I added a small black jacket to cover my shoulders when inside air conditioning. It looked nicer than a white cover up. I completed my look with black sling shoes.

Fabulously comfortable & pretty!
Another winner!! I wore this to my daughter's graduation and was comfortable all day! The material is so soft and fit perfectly in all the right places! Although a heavier fabric, it wasn't too warm at all. I actually wore a white shrug to cover my arms for air/conditioned coolness. I recommend this dress 100%!

This is a gorgeous dress, and I received so many compliments. I would definitely recommend it!
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.

Kentucky Derby Dress for Day 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!

Amazing dress!
This was not the dress I had originally selected, since there was an issue with my order. RTR was very attentive and went the extra mile trying to find me a replacement dress. I couldn't be happier with the dress I ended up with. It fit perfectly, and was a great dress to wear to my cousin's baptism. I received so many compliments, so sad to have to return this dress!

Great dress for a more family-oriented event
Wore this to a friend's engagement party. Most of the attendees were her family, so this was a great dress for more conservative crowd. The print was very pretty and while a little tight along the bust, it wasn't uncomfortable or visibly tight once on. Would rent again.

This dress was so comfortable and pretty for a spring wedding. Loved the pockets, was able to carry my phone and did not need a purse. I am 5'10" and was nervous length would mid-thigh but was pleasantly surprised it hit at modest above knee length on me. Great first rental experience.

Lovely colors, unique material
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.
