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.

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!

This was my first RTR and I was blown away w/ the ease of it all, from selection to delivery!
This dress was amazing! Comfortable, gorgeous pattern (the picture here isn't the best lighting), perfect length and I got so many compliments! The material was great, but definitely didn't have too much "breathe" to it - I was comfortable all night tho (outdoor wedding and no AC in building at all!).

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.

Great dress for dancing! and it has POCKETS!!
Fit Pros - True to size, I wear a 14 and this fit well. It was right at my knee, and I'm 5'4". The fabric is thick and doesn't wrinkle. Fit Cons - I am short waisted - this style wasn't the most flattering on me, but I still felt great in it! I looked way bustier than I am.

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!

Great print. Might run large.
RTR didn't have my size, but I went ahead and ordered it anyway in the size up thinking that it may still fit. It was very large and so I didn't wear it. Great coloring and print. The hems are undone and the fabric is very heavy. Now that I've seen it in person, I would still be interested in wearing it in my size. I would order my true size and a size down next time.

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.

The dress was lovely!
I enjoyed wearing this dress! As previous folks have stated, the waist runs small so I had to wear the larger size. This was my first time renting a dress so I was very happy with the service and outcome. I must say that I was surprised that the dress was not lined. My thought was that more expensive dresses would surely have a lining, but not this one. Regardless of that fact, I still enjoyed wearing the piece.

Versatile Dress for Bridal Shower and Bachelorette Party
I loved this dress. It's been a cooler Summer this year and this fabric was perfect. I felt like the waist sat a little low on me personally so I added a belt but that was just my personal taste. The fabric is pretty stretchy except at the waist and even though the dress was a good fit, I had some trouble with the zipper (up and down) at the seam. I had a ton of compliments on the dress at my friends bridal shower. I wanted to look extra nice as the matron of honor!
