Great fabric - but very busty dress.

This dress has great fabric and movement, but it has an extremely, very low cut bust which makes this a perfect night out dress. Unfortunately I rented for a work presentation and so I paired it with a scarf and blazer to prevent flashing the girls to anyone.

Wore for my bridal shower!

The chest is a little low, so I would suggest going bra-less or wearing a bandeau! The waist is tight and very true to size. Full skirt and flirty ruffles - I got so many compliments!

Lots of fabric

Love the style and the fabric of this dress- the slight texture makes it really unique and I love the waist detail. However, while it fit me perfectly, there was just a ton of fabric. It made my waist and hips look way larger than they are. I also safety pinned the chest area closed-- probably wouldn't have been ok for work. Lovely dress, but maybe not the most flattering for curves

Beware! Gaping front!

I loved the style of this dress but could not wear it due to the gaping front. It is too delicate of a dress to wear a cami underneath (would look odd) so unless you have fake boobs or small boobs or an industrial amount of double sided tape, this dress will not work for you. The v goes down to below bra line in front and drapes open on the side. Too bad, such a cute dress.

Rehearsal day dress

Wore this for my rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. SO comfortable. You'll want it to fit snugly as the fabric around the waist can look bulky. I'm 5'9 so i liked the length. The v was too deep so I pinned it. A perfect dress for the day!

Rented for Diner en Blanc. Fit was great and worked well for my shape (narrow waist and wide hips). Material gapes at the chest. I wore a full coverage basic white bra.

Too much fabric!!!!

I went against my gut/reviews and rented this because the look is so fashion forward but..I couldn't wear it! The 4 was snug on me but I looked like I was swimming in it. The 6 was more comfortable but looks wise it was even worse. I rented it for my rehearsal dinner and ended up buying a last minute dress the morning of the event. Save yourself the aggravation and skip this dress.

Absolutely loved this dress! It was extremely comfortable, classy, and chic. Perfect for my works awards ceremony! Ran very true to size. I am usually a 2 and wore the 34. Perfection!

Lots of fabric but cute

I rented this for my bridal shower. It worked fine, the fit was a smidge awkward. It fits true to size but getting it over the hips was a little tricky as there's no stretch and I have no hips (the zipper should just come down further)! There is a lot of fabric and it's pretty thick. The bust area was gaping so I had to pin it. Overall it worked well for a daytime shower, but i don't know that it's the most flattering - think it added a few pounds!

Beautiful white dress!

This fit slightly large relative to other Carven dresses I've rented. The material is textured, which I did not realize in the pictures initially. Unique dress that was fun to wear! I did not have issues with the V-neck being too deep or revealing. Length was appropriate for taller girls!

Not flattering

Too much fabric. A thicker, almost quilt material that did not seem summer like at all. And I could barely get it over my head, much less over my hips. The waist is cut very tiny and has zero forgiveness.

Cute. Sort of looked like a draped towel. Fit well but ordered other white dresses and opted for another option.

What are you supposed to do with your boobs?

The dress fit nicely in the waist but then gaped widely at the bust. Where was I supposed to put them? Not intended for DDs.

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and it was absolutely perfect!

This dress fit true to size. I needed a small pin to hold together the top but other than that it fit perfect. The material was thick and laid nicely on the bottom. I recommend this dress to anyone!

Not as seen

Not only did it run small, but it looked like you were wearing a cloth diaper. It was thick and bulky. What I thought was a cute bridal shower outfit turned into a all out search for a new idea with 24hrs til the party.

Meh

The top does not fit properly, not sure if it was just this dress or my small chest. The waist was also snug (and I have a small waist). If you have a small waist and large chest this might be for you? Unfortunately, this did nothing for me.

Too low cut

No clue how anyone has worn this with a bra. It was far too low cut for my work event. However, the debris is a beautiful thickness and not see-through at all. If you don't mind the low cut you should rent

Looks beautiful on the model but pretty frumpy I felt in person.

The material is much thicker than it looks. For hourglass figures it definitely makes your waist look bigger than it is..

Cute dress for my Bridal Shower

Skirt was fuller than expected and it was low cut. I don't have much of a chest so I used some fashion tape to keep anything from poking out when I bent over. It was a comfortable material but because of the low cut I did not feel completely comfortable all day. Looks great in photos but I felt like I was adjusting myself every hour or so.

This dress was very comfortable and flattering! I wore it for my graduation and it was a hit!

The fit was very flattering, but perhaps better for women with a fuller bust. I had to pin the top together as it was coming apart too much, but it worked great with a pin in it. The waist was a tad tight but overall the fit was great! The white fabric is really soft and pretty. Great dress for a daytime event!

It was a fluffy material and was tight with no give around the rib cage. Not my favorite.

I should have maybe ordered a size up but I didn’t realize there was no elasticity in the rib cage. I’m a 32DDD so it pulled at the front. I think it’s a better dress for someone with a modest size chest. My husband is a complementary person and he even thought it was a bit too fluffy and didn’t fit me very well.

RTR Team Review

This classy white Carven dress is great for a daytime event or less formal cocktail party. Running true to size, I'd recommend sizing up for backup if you're curvier and down if you're smaller framed. The bust has plenty of room and is great for all cup sizes. The waist is slightly fitted at the natural waist, and hips have room/are comfortable. The material is thicker and the cut allows for you to wear a bra. At 5'7" the length hit at about mid-thigh. Great with nude heels and delicate jewelry.

I wore this to my wedding tasting. Though true to size, there was more fabric than I was expecting.

If I would have seen this in the store, I probably would have passed on it. The voluminous fabric, I felt, was not very flattering. I'm not sure it photographs well as it makes me look bigger than I am. It did grow on me though, just wasn't exactly what I was expecting from the picture.

great dress

i'm typically a 4, but sized up since there was no give at the waist and i have a large waist. turns out i shldve stuck w the size 4! there's a decent amount of room at the waist despite there being no size. the front was completely open w the 6 so the 4 wldve likely helped that, but i bet i wldve still needed a cami. it's a big fluffy in the front and the fabric is thicker, but i don't believe it make me look larger. it was soft and didn't wrinkle easily.

I love the simplicity of this dress BUT it made me look like if I had a belly, which I don't have one. Perhaps I should have gone down in size.

LOTS of cleavage! I had to buy a special bra but overall it was a flattering fit.

The dress overall, is a little too long on the shoulders and the back if you are petite.

Graduation Dress! Perfect for the occasion!

Loved this dress even with all the material it wasn't too heavy or uncomfy! The cinched waist was flattering. Only problem was it showed too much cleavage and I had to pin it, but was manageable for a day or big event.

Very flattering.

It's very low in the front. So a deep V bra or no bra is necessary.
