My Cousin Vinny
This dress does not run true to fit. It definitely runs small. I generally wear size 2 or 4 and rented this in a 4. I would have needed at least the 6 for it not to be pulling dramatically all over my body. My husband's description I think says it all: "If you want to look like Marisa Tomei in My Cousin Vinny, you can wear that dress".

I rented this dress for my prom and it was absolutely amazing. It wears well and the material is great. I usually wear a 0, but I ended up wearing my size two back up. It fits like a glove, but is still very comfortable. I loved this dress so much that I was so sad when I had to send it back. I definitely recommend renting it.

This was my first experience with a D&G dress. The material is a very thin stretchy silk. I enjoyed wearing it for my easter brunch, but not my most favorite dress ever. I think I rented the size 6 and was happy with it. The size 4 just wasnt happening.

Wore to my rehearsal dinner and it was perfect!
This dress looks beautiful in real life. It is so comfortable with a beautiful pattern. I paired it with wedges and a little military jacket to dress it down a bit and it looked great. Compliments all night. I ordered my size and the back up size...both fit but I went with the bigger one because my regular size was tight.

The cruise where I wore this dress was a 10 day trip- too long for RTR (or so I thought!). Customer service was so helpful and I was able to rent the dress for 11 days at no extra cost, just had to get my own overnight return shipping. A fantastic first RTR experience!
This dress is very beautiful and flattering. I had heard that D&G runs small and they do, I'm glad I got the bigger size as my backup because that's what I ended up wearing. I got a lot of compliments!

Gorgeous fabric, flawless design.
I hosted a very big baby shower for my very pregnant sister. It was a garden party-type thing. So this dress, in theory, is perfect. I think it would have been ultra-perfect if I was a guest. But as the hostess, it was a little too delicate for me. I looked best in it when I was standing still! Walking required a little adjustment, as I'm very tall and the fabric causes it to feel like it's riding up constantly. It's very silky, very impressive floral design. Love the straps (saucy... look like bra straps). I wore the back-up size, as the 40 was way too short to be appropriate around all of my elderly relatives! Overall, made me feel beautiful, but only when I was not walking around or bending over.

May I ask: how did the size 40 fit for you, outside of the length? I am close in measurements to you (though not as tall) and have this dress for an upcoming event. Thank you!

Hi Kris, this dress runs a bit snug but the fabric is a stretch silk so it does have give!

Floral at the KY Oaks!
This dress was perfect for this yankee gal to bring out my inner southern belle at the KY Oaks. I paired it with a cork wedge and hot pink sun hat & received TONS of compliments. I wore a size 10 - I usually wear a size 6. The extra room was GREATLY appreciated, as it's incredibly form fitting!

it was incredibly easy to use, and the reminder emails were so helpful, especially considering how busy I was, it helped me not to forget big time. The best compliment was my guy best friend said I looked beautiful. That meant a lot to me :)
I went to see a Anything Goes on Broadway. We went in a limo and then sat in the front row and this dress was absolutely perfect. I loved it, and I got SO many complements! The fabric is SO soft and incredibly comfortable. I was so sad to see it go!

Loved every second!
I wore this dress to an outdoor evening charity event. The dress was sexy, fun, yet sophisticated. I typically wear a size 2, but went up a size in this dress. I paired with gold heels and a gold clutch. The dress was stretchy and did ride up a little bit when walking, even with the larger size. I went out dancing after the event, simply because I was not ready to put the dress to bed!

Not another boring party dress
The fabric is even more beautiful and vibrant than it looks in the picture. I felt wonderful wearing it. I went up to give myself a little breathing room and because I didn't have spanx. I loved it so much that I wish I could buy it. I even searched on ebay.

Got so many compliments!
This is definitely a thin, non-forgiving dress so don't forget your spanx! I usually wear a 4 (yet sometimes 2) but I was afraid that it ran small so I ordered a 40 and a 42. Ended up wearing the 40- fit like a like glove. This was for a summer outdoor wedding so the floral design was perfect. Got lots of compliments, and I wore my backup rental for the Rehearsal dinner!

It's very tight and runs small. I would rent this again since it's very pretty but I would order it in one size bigger than I normally wear.

Amazing! Too many compliments!
I rented this for a friends bridal shower, it was PERFECT. I couldn't have been happier or looked better. It was an amazing dress. I wish I owned it and def see myself re-renting it again. Love, Love, Love! It is very form fitting. I ordered the 4, and the 6. 40 and 42 respectively, but ending up going with the 6.

Comfortable
The dress runs small, but it is stretchy. A 38 is doable albeit a bit snug. I sized up to a 40 since I was wearing the dress for 8+ hours and I was planning on doing a lot of eating, drinking, and dancing. I'm 5'3" and 115lbs. To give you a better idea about sizing, I typically wear a 26/27 in jeans, XS/S top, XS/S dress, 34A bra and the 40 fits comfortably with plenty of room to move around in.

Beautiful dress!
It's pretty tight and reveals any little bumps and bulges, so if you are at all concerned about your mid-section, this might not be the dress for you. Otherwise it is absolutely beautiful!

Gorgeous dress worn for an anniversary
The ex may be gone, but I can't get this dress out of my head! Made me feel like a million bucks. Gotta love D&G. Customer service gave me a phone call when I placed the order to recommend the correct sizes based on my shape and the fit of D&G dresses. I'm so glad they did, because I was unknowingly underestimating!

Went to a beautiful outdoor wedding with a beautiful dress :)
I was worried it would end up being too long as I'm on the shorter side but the straps were great for adjusting the length! Fit both the 36 and the 38 but ended up wearing the 38 for a little more wiggle room. Beautiful dress, definitely recommend.

Beautiful dress but the material is a little thin.
I rented this dress to celebrate a friend's birthday. The print and design enticed me. I was disappointed to see how thin the material was. Even with the help of Spanx, steer away if you have some what of a tummy. I had a baby two years ago and weigh 117 and I looked like a floral print snake who just had lunch. This dress is for the girls with abs of steel!

Vibrant and fun for a Santa Barbara wedding.
The dress has a nice satiny finish. I rarely wear spanx and am pretty toned, but they were necessary for this dress. I wore the extra size up. The hem rides up a bit when you walk or dance, so it's a better fit if you're not super-tall. The straps were a little stretched out, so I tucked them in; it looked cleaner and more formal as a strapless. The print and style were perfect for an end-of-summer Santa Barbara wedding.

Love the dress!
I almost always wear a size 0 dress but felt like the size 36 was a little tight on someone my age. So I opted to wear the size 38. Loved it. Wore pink heels. Ordered a mystery bling and received a necklace that looked fabulous with the dress. Kudos to the stylist who chose it. I'll rent this again.

Luxurious silky fabric
This dress has a beautiful silky floral print that is perfect for spring/ summer. I wore it to go out dancing in Miami Beach. It was very comfortable because of the silky softness of the material. (Just had to drink lots of green tea during the day to lose some water weight) .

pretty and comfortable but not right for pear bodies
the fit is obviously very snug on the torso, but I have wide hips and the dress seemed to stay at the width of my hips instead of staying tight around my thighs, which I didn't really like. the dress runs small so I ended up wearing my backup size. The length of the dress was also a problem for me so I tucked some of the fabric under the dress to make it shorter. Over all it's a nice dress but just isn't right for a pear body type.

So comfortable amd flattering.
I ordered this dress in 36 and 38. The 36 didn't arrive (and RTR gave me a refund and credit - great customer service). I am glad I had the larger size because it was very form fitting. I don't like wearing spanx type garments so was glad one wasn't needed in this size. The fabric was so soft. I wore it to a baptism and brunch so again having the larger size was appropriate. I got so many compliments. I highly recommend for a day time event. Very memorable and as I said so many compliments.

Comfort, class and style for a super-fun family wedding- and we like to tear it up on the dancefloor
Unfortunately I don't think I got a full-length photo of this gorgeous dress, so the photo I've included will have to do. I ordered a 42 and a 44, I have a D&G blouse in 42 but since the dress is short and I am tall, I thought going up would be wise. I did end up wearing the 44- I wore a bustier style strapless bra that added about a cup size and the 42 didn't quite want to zip all the way up. I also wore a spanx-type half-slip (Maidenform I think, I got it at Target) with built-in boy shorts. The fit is snug and was extra short (on me anyway, I'm 5'11), I felt beautiful and sexy and sophisticatedly feminine. This is pure D&G brilliance, amped-up sexiness without being trashy. I felt perfectly comfortable wearing this to my cousin's wedding, and was lavished with compliments from family and strangers, including from the couple's friends in their mid-20s. This dress is good for your ego! I didn't want to return it, and the only downside is that I may now find myself obsessed with keeping track of RTR's sales even though I can't imagine them ever retiring this one.

Beautiful fabric but tough to pull off!
The good: the fabric is beautiful and the dress is very comfortable with a lot of stretch. The 42 and 44 both zipped easily but I felt like the 44 was more flattering so I went with that. The bad: the dress has no structure and the fabric is clingy so spanx are a must and even with spanx the dress magnifies flaws. I originally wasn't going to go through with wearing it because I looked 100% straight up and down in it but put a belt on and that helped a lot! In general, I would highly recommend it to people with a flawless hourglass body and a completely flat stomach but would caution others against it.

This dress is even prettier in person! It does run a tad small but there is a bit of stretch in the fabric so with a good pair of spanx, you could totally fit in the smaller size.

I was so tired when I took this picture but the dress is soooo pretty i still had to put it up!
This dress runs small so be sure to order a size up - I wore a size 42 (usually a size 6 in US but fit more like a size 2-4 US in this dress). The material is super satiny and will show everything if your not wearing proper undergarments - SPANX IS A MUST!

Spring Wedding
I had been eyeing this dress since its debut on RTR. I finally had the perfect occasion to wear it to! I wore it to a rehearsal dinner at the beach in South Texas. The material was perfect since it was windy and a little chilly. The dress is GOR-GEOUS!! So many compliments from guests and THE BRIDE!! It does run small so order a size up. I forgot about this fact but resorted to Spanx and it looked amazing. And it's true it's made for us "smalls" so ladies with loooong legs be careful.

No one had a more beautiful spring dress!
Hugs your figure beautifully. I added a bow at the waist for more definition. The dress is tight and runs small but the fabric has some give to it. However, it's not very forgiving of a tummy or other such things, so if you have something to hide, this dress won't be helpful. The bow I added helped distract from my little tummy protrusion.

Amazing Fit
This dress was amazing!. Both dresses fit me but I ended up wearing the larger size as it wasn't as tight on my legs as the smaller size. The larger size was slightly bigger in the waist but this just allowed me more room to eat and drink at the wedding :) I would have loved to keep this dress it felt amazing.

I'm 5'4", 130, 34D and the size 4 (38) fit perfectly. It was a little loose which I preferred. I definitely could have fit in a size 2 but it would have been uncomfortable to stand around in all day.

I rent from RTR all the time! I just love it.
This dress is just phoenomenal! I wore it to a horse race in Nashville called Steeplechase and it was a big hit. It fits great, it's comfortable and just a beautiful dress. I highly recommend it!
