Wore the dress for my rehearsal dinner

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
It ran a bit big, and wasn't as flattering as I'd hoped. I am 5'6 and it hit about mid-calf, which was a little longer than expected. Its very thick, rich feeling fabric, and had a pattern on it too which made it interesting. Most the night I wore with a jean jacket which was nice. It would have been a bit plain on its own

Wedding rehearsal dinner

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large

This dress seems to run a little large as I wore the size 6 and still had plenty of room. I ordered it with a belt and I am thankful I did however I wish I would have ordered a thicker belt. It was very comfortable and exactly the look I was going for.

Elegant, Feminine, and very comfortable!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress as my wedding reception dress and it was so perfectly suited to the occasion - and to my figure - that I very much wished that I could keep it! After wearing my beautiful, floor-length gown most of the evening, it was such a delight to slip into this beautifully constructed sheath with its full skirt that was perfect for dancing. Though simple in shape, this dress still hugged my curves and showed my shape. You can wear a standard bra with this dress. I recommend it very highly!

Fit like a glove!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was absolutely perfect for my rehearsal dinner, it fit like a glove. The zipper was a little sticky, but the fabric was just gorgeous and felt so expensive. It can be a little lack-luster from the on-set because it's all white, but that's nothing a chunky Kate Spade necklace couldn't fix. And the pleats in the back made it so fun and flirty!

Cute and Classy

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this for my wedding and reception. The dress fit beautifully! I'm short, so you can see that it was longer on me than on the model. I didn't realize the fabric was embellished, which was a lovely surprise. It's fully lined and not at all see-through. Big bonus: you can wear a regular bra with it, and even at a size 4R, it zipped perfectly for my larger bust size. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is due to the body odor that was not adequately cleaned out of the dress. As soon as I took it out of the bag, I could smell it. Future renters: rent early and take it in for another cleaning (this is true for other dresses -- I rented several and they all had an odor). Otherwise, I was very happy and nearly everyone used the word "classy" to describe the dress.

Nice dress. Not a real wow factor, so be sure to think about accessories. However, I did get a few compliments. Fit was a little large, but flattering to all figures. Unexpected surprise was the textured fabric which was nice and different. Couldn't tell that from the online pic.

Easter Sunday festivities

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
This lady-like Carmen Marc Valvo fit and flare dress was perfect for Easter Sunday activities, going from church to party. Its modest style boasts a high neckline and a lower hem (just at knee length) but was attractively fitted thru the bodice. It did wrinkle somewhat both in travel and while wearing but not enough to spoil the look. In size, i normally choose a 4 first but it was the 2 that fit best in this case.

I didn't wear this dress, but if I had it would've worked out fine. It's very plain looking, it has a "textured" design to the white material. I did try it on and the 8 would have worked out fine. The only reason I didn't wear it was that I liked my first choice better for my afternoon luncheon.

This dress runs a tiny bit large but is really cute on. I chose the navy and white over this one because this one had a dropped waste.

I didn't wear this dress eventho it fit good. It was a little snug under my arm. With the right jewelry it would be a statement.

The dress was great, keep in mind that the fabric has very little give. If you're a Iittle on the bustier side, size up.

I didn't wear this dress because I ended up going with another from RTR for my bridal shower. I rented a 6 and 8 the 6 was big so I didn't end up choosing this one but would like to rent again in a small size

Perfect for my son's christening

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I needed a dress that could conceal my post-baby problem areas and this did the trick. Since I'm nursing and the pleating at the hip adds a little volume- I looked more curvaceous than usual and needed a 6 instead of my normal 2/4. Overall I loved this, and felt very cute in it. I would recommend wearing a fun statement shoe since the dress is on the simpler side.

Beautiful and sweet but if your're a size 4, order a 2. It fits large from under the bust and down.

UNBELIEVABLY HUGE.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress to wear to my wedding shower, and I couldn't wear the dress because I was so HUGE. I had to run out and buy another dress the morning of the shower. I normally wear a 0 or 2, and I felt like a zero must have been mislabeled because the waist hit me at the hips, and there was at least 5 inches of extra fabric around my waist, and it hung below my knees. But then the back-up size (2) fit very similarly. I was so disappointed

The dress fits great and is very flattering. The tonal print on the white gives the dress an added depth instead of just white. Easy to wear. I even got a compliment from my 24 year old son. Thanks RTR!

runs very large - fit looked matronly but vibe too young

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Everyday
This may have been my mistake - I usually wear a 6 - but I don't like my clothes to be skin tight, so I went up a size. This is a woven dress that needs to fit nicely and it just hung like a burlap bag. I found myself wanting clothespins for the back like they use in bridal shops. I just couldn't salvage it. Plus, I felt like I couldn't be taken seriously in a look this swing - y. (probably my issue, though)
