Beautiful material, top runs large

I could not get the top of this dress to lay well. I am small chested and it kind of drooped no matter I did. I almost returned without wearing, but then tried it with a fitted navy sweater on top and it looked fantastic. So many compliments on my gorgeous 'skirt'. The colors are beautiful and the skirt has fantastic movement. It ended up being a hit despite the ill fit of the top (on me).

Comfortable light weight wrap dress

This wrap dress was very comfortable- thin material so good for warmer weather. I wore with a blazer since it was cold out Fits true to size maybe even a little big especially in the bust area but I'm small busted Was a good modest length but with heels. came to shin length and I am 5'5 - 5'6 tall Received many compliments- overall pretty dress for the spring /summer

Fantastic DVF wrap dress - Stunning

One of my favorite DVF wrap dresses ever - so comfortable and flattering. Gorgeous colors - people stopped me to tell me how beautiful the dress was. Definitely a bit revealing in the bust - but most DVF dresses are.

Classic dress

I am between a size 4 and 6 and the 4 fit well. It's a traditional DVF wrap so it's nice and roomy. The color is amazing. No complaints all. Renting again for fundraiser in a few weeks.

Not a great fit for ladies with large hips/haunches

Beautiful dress, however there is no lining, so it was quite unflattering for the bottom half of my body. The dress clung to my haunches and you could even see my cellulite :( Probably a fab dress for straight bodied individuals.

I work in a cosmetic surgery practice and it was beautiful and got many compliments. The fit was lovely but I quickly got it dirty with my work materials BC it's delicate fabric. Really liked it.

I wanted to buy it, that's what.

The chest area runs large so I went down a size which worked well. The colors are beautiful and the way the skirt is sewn is so pretty with the different panels.

This dress is beautiful and flowing.

I work a green color top underneath since it would have shown too much on top for work. Luckily I had a shirt that matched perfectly. It is a very light flowing material that I loved. The only thing is the material doesn't really breathe so although it is sleeveless, your legs could feel hot in summer weather.

Easy breezy sophistication

The colors of this dress were what caught my eye when I was looking for a dress to wear to a wedding in southern CA and it did not disappoint in person - so vibrant! It was perfect for the occasion (non-black tie) and the fit was perfect, so flattering with the tie waist. This is classic DVF - these dresses are iconic and the wrap style fit perfectly. I had to pull it pretty snug for the dress to lie flat on my chest, but not so tight that it was uncomfortable. I'm 5'9" and this dress hit just below my knees. So light, feels like air. The only downside of the silk is that it's a little susceptible to deodorant stains, though a dry washcloth wiped away most of the residue. A cautionary note that if it's breezy, be prepared to hold the dress down - I almost had a Marilyn Monroe moment!

Beautiful, flowy dress

This dress was so easy to wear! It was so comfortable, light, and flowy. Loved the color combo and the soft silk fabric. I surprisingly didn't have any issues with the wrap V-front and didn't need any fashion tape to prevent my bra from peeking out. Since I'm a shortie, the dress hit just above my ankles.

Gorgeous dress, beautiful colors in silk!

I rented this for my confirmation ceremony and it was perfect! My first DVF dress and it did not disappoint! Compliments all night, and I felt beautiful! Loved the drape and fit of this dress. I wore a camisole and cardigan bc it was a church event. But would wear without for a date night. I'm a larger than usual pear shape, and the dress was very flattering. Ties above Natural waist (5'9").

I love this dress and definitely wish I owned it. I love that it is a wrap dress which is quite forgiving. The colors are stunning and I definitely got compliments. I love that I could wear this to work and it would also work well for going out.

This dress got tons of compliments and was so fun to dance in!

I ended up with this dress after the first dress I ordered arrived stretched out and too big. I visited the RTR store in NYC and tried this on. It lays beautifully. I have a large bust so the top wasn't too big at all. At the same time, I felt that it provided good coverage and I never felt like things were going to move around too much. It moves really nicely and is fun on the dance floor. The material is very thin so I wore some spanx underneath and it smoothed everything out. Success overall!

nice dress, but ended up not wearing it

This dress definitely needs to be pinned if you have a smaller chest; I am a 36D and I still needed to pin it (the photo shows the dress unpinned). Pinning the dress made the lines straighter and made the dress fit better. The dress is definitely a lightweight material so it is a good choice for warm weather events, but I think it would've been easier to manipulate the fit of the dress. I ended up not wearing the dress because I had to return the other dress I had rented for the wedding (this dress was for the rehearsal) and I wanted the full credit for my order. If I had the ability to keep one dress for the rental period I definitely would've kept this dress and worn it to the rehearsal.

Perfect fit- in technicolor

The colors of this dress are just as vivid as in the photo- and gorgeous. Unlike many wrap dresses, I experienced no gaping at or slippage of the neckline. Great length for a business-casual event. Will rent this one again.

This is the perfect luxurious work dress.

I loved the fabric and cut of this dress. I felt beautiful and powerful all day -- and people stopped me several times to compliment me on my dress. That said: it was a little larger than I expected, and I had to pull it a little too far in the wrap-around.

Elegant but forgiving!

Rented this dress at 7 weeks postpartum for a Memorial Day weekend wedding in Northern Michigan - it was flattering and forgiving and I was sad to return it! For reference, am about 120lbs at this point postpartum with HUGE boobs from breastfeeding. The silk is a medium weight and gives the skirt a lovely swing. The wrap is low, but I paired with a nursing tank underneath so I could just loosen the tie and breastfeed easily. Really loved this dress!

Classic elegance

This material is expensive and gorgeous. And the colors are vibrant and beautiful. I would definitely rent again. The neckline is very low, but with my smaller chest it was fine. It would probably be a little too much for a bustier gal.

Perfect day dress

This dress was light and flowy! I wore it to a bridal shower so I did wear a cami underneath because it was very low cut. I could have gotten away with not wearing a cami for a night out! Got lots of compliments and the dress was comfortable to wear!

This breezy dress was perfect for the Vegas heat!

This dress is fantastic - the cut is very flattering and swirly when you walk, and I never had a problem with the wrap flying open. The neck is low-cut, so you may want wardrobe tape to keep your bra from making an appearance. Even though I am short, the midi length was not overwhelming and didn't cut my legs off at a weird place (though I did wear it with 5" heels). The dress is super lightweight, and was perfect for a night on a patio in Vegas.

Perfect Dress!

I loved wearing this dress. I'm rather sad I have to return it. The fabric is light and flowy. The colors are bright and slimming. The olive is not a color I usually wear but it worked out well. Loved this dress so much!!! I usually wear a 16, so I took a chance with this dress. It's a true wrap dress so there was some forgiveness in size. I wore a 14 and it looked great. Paired with silver jewelry and nude shoes.

Beautiful but a little difficult

Beautiful dress, however the fabric wrinkles easily. When it arrived I had to gently steam it before wearing it - so be prepared for that. I wore it for about two hours and it wrinkled a good amount in that short time. The fabric also shows water spots easily. I love wrap dresses but this one tended to unwrap pretty easily around the chest and I kept pulling at the neck opening so my bra wouldn't show. Perhaps a little double-sided fashion tape would help with this? A slip is recommended. I received about four compliments in the two hours I wore it so it certainly made a statement, however with all the fidgeting I did while wearing this I won't be re-renting.

Amazing dress

I usually wear a 4 but the 2 fit great. My chest is on the smaller side but if I was larger on top I might've needed a cami or larger size. This dress is so elegant. The bottom of the dress flows beautifully when you walk. I wore it to work but it would be a perfect date night dress. I received countless compliments.

daytime wedding

The dress was a hit at the late summer wedding I attended, garnering multiple compliments and despite my concerns about it being to heavy or too light, it was the perfect fabric weight for the occasion. I loved the swirl when dancing or just turning, and the length was just below the knee for me (At 5'10"). As a silk dress, even the slightest sprinkle of water- whether condensation from a drink or vigorous handwashing- showed up dramatically, but dried fairly quickly. I have a smaller bust so I needed fashion tape or a safety pin to keep my bra to myself but with the overlapping material that was easily managed. Both the dress and backup size were SERIOUSLY wrinkled when they arrived and hanging them to steam with the shower running was insufficient. It's possible the size 6 would have fit better but it was hard to tell with all the wrinkles and the 8 was good enough- the joys of a wrap dress! Unfortunately, my efforts with a steaming tool were wasted because the dress was showing wrinkles again after the 30 minute drive to the ceremony so I just went with it.

I loved this dress. I wore it to an afternoon Wedding and I had many compliments!

I'm a 34DD and an hourglass figure. I wore the size 8 to cover my bust a little more, even so, I had to try to minimize my cleavage and added a gold tassel necklace with matching earrings. I lucked out and bought some navy leopard print sued d'orsay pumps by DVF to wear and it was a hit! I'd suggest sizing up one size. The fabric is very thin without a lot of stretch, but it is beautiful! I wore spanx!

Amazing fit and feel

I rented this dress as a backup for my friend's baby shower. I'm normally a 14/16/18 depending on the dress and style but they only had this in a 12. Since it's a wrap, I decided to go for it. I wore a beige tank top underneath and otherwise you'd never know it was technically a size or two smaller than my normal fit. This dress was comfortable and fit perfectly. I got more compliments on this dress than anything I've worn in a very long time. I am sad to send it back!

Beautiful fabric, fit and colors.

I had to wear a bit of fashion tape to keep the top from opening too far (I wore this to work) but it still fit well and the skirt has an appropriate amount of flowy-ness to it to feel pretty. Would rent again!

Fit was good. This was a little big on me as I grabbed a size 10 because it was in the show room. I will order a 6 or 8 next time.

DVF is my BFF

This dress is beautiful. Although I chose to wear it to work, probably a better option for a wedding, girls dinner, bridal shower, or a nice outdoor event. Sexy, flowy and the material and colors are beautiful. If the wind blows a certain way, expect to show a little leg. Definitely had to pin it up to keep the girls under wraps at work
