Great dress. Runs true to size!

Unfortunately I sized up. I thought this dress may run small as it is Italian sizing but alas I should have ordered my normal size. Beautiful quality dress and material is on thick side so it hangs nicely. Too bad I couldn't wear it!

RTR Team Review

I loved the cut of this dress! The black and white were color blocked in such a flattering way. My usual dress size is a four and the dress I am wearing is a 4(40 European size). I did feel that the dress was a little big on me. I do recommend going a size down for the backup size. The fabric did not have any stretch. The dress was very comfortable throughout my midsection. This dress would be great for any cup size. I am a 36D and felt very comfortable in the dress. This dress requires a strapless bra or a NuBra. I am 5’9” and the dress was mid-thigh length on me. This dress would be perfect for a night out or day wedding. Pair with black heels and big earrings.

Perfect! This dress is unforgettable. The dress looks great on even with a more structured cut and fabric. The cutouts along the neckline are heavenly and don't constrict movement. Would wear this everyday if I could!

Flattering and unique LBD

I wore this to a party for a fun take on a LBD. The cut was flattering, and it was just the right length - not too long and not too short. My only complaint is that since I'm a 34DD and there's no stretch in the fabric, the dress formed a hump in the back below the neckline. It wasn't too noticeable, but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone bustier than a DD.

Really Cool Looking

The dress itself is really interesting in it's design - seems like it would be a really flattering dress to wear. It isn't as loose as I would have expected, but the fabric was high quality and you could tell that it was a designer piece. I didn't end up wearing it because there was a rip from where the white attached the the black part of the dress running for about 3 inches in the thigh area.

Nice fit, good colors and style, does wrinkle

Wore to a casual dinner and next day to work. Definitely a dress you can dress up or down, I wore some white Keds then black ankle boots, could easy dress way up with heels. Black Straps are supposed to come down a bit I think. If I wanted a tighter look I may have been able to get away with a smaller size but I was happy with the one I had. Wrinkled in the lap area after sitting for dinner for awhile. Didn't photography well while seated but I think a better photo would come from standing! My bf thought it was "weird" but I liked it! Probably wouldn't rent again but it was fun and great quality.

Absolute love.

Unique and stylish. The fit is easy through the bust and waist with just a bit of snug on the hips. The classic black & white combo make this a no brainer for work. It has a lot of versatility and would look great in many environments. This is my 3rd Giamba rental and I think I am madly in love....

The dress is cute and I received compliments but the fit was strange and very large through the midsection

It was too tight around my hips

It is a lovely dress, but I am a curvy woman, so I would not recommend it for this body type. Not even trying a larger size because it was fine around my chest. But I felt it was uncomfortable to walk and would not be able to sit the whole night!

Super comfy and stylish

Wore this dress to our Thanksgiving dinner and received tons of compliments. It is comfortable to wear but still has some cool elements to elevate its style. Recommend!

Runs short for tall girls

Absolutely LOVE this dress. It is so beautifully constructed and the fabric is lux. However I'm 5'10 and the dress comes to just below my butt, so it's simply too short for me to feel comfortable wearing it. Returning unworn but would absolutely recommend to anyone who is either of more average height or who doesn't mind a mini!

Simple but elegant

The fit was much more snug on me than the model picture portrays but still fit great. Very sophisticated and chic.
