Husband-approved

My husband rarely even notices what I'm wearing and he complimented me on this dress twice when I wore it to a fancy lunch. Super lux, chic, and ladylike. I sized up for length so I could wear it to work, and plan to keep it a bit longer and do so. Great pick, dresses like this are why I subscribe to unlimited.

Unique and vibrant dress

I really loved wearing this dress! The print is unique and vibrant and there's a subtle texture to the fabric that makes it even more interesting. It runs true to size but the fabric has no give. I usually wear a 4 but the 6 looked fine, if a bit boxy. Keep it simple with accessories and let the dress speak for itself.

Great quality; has that wow factor!

This dress is so well made, has unique features with the lining, thick material and more. I got a few wears out of it. I will say I'm 5'2 and thought it was pretty short for daytime wear.

Very flattering

This dress fits amazing and is very forgiving. It made me feel beautiful. High quality but not too formal. Rented for graduation.

Perfect Derby dress

This was a great dress for my 5 month post partum self to wear to the KY derby. It fell straight down and didn't draw attention to my waist. It's pretty short but not too short for a social event. I wore a stick on bra. The hem was falling out the back of the dress which was disappointing but I didn't realize it till we were already there and I just rocked on. That is not the first time that has happened to me with RTR. I would say it runs a little large.

love love love

this dress was amazing! the only thing that made me paranoid was spilling on it since it was so expensive. the slit is a little high so be careful. but super cute for summer. I even wore it one day to the office with a navy blazer.

Cute but SHORT

I am naturally a size 12 and the biggest size was a 46 or 10 so it was naturally a little bit tight but not too much so. Unfortunately the slit in the front made it very uncomfortable to wear sitting down. Definitely a cute dress and very comfortable with a little stretch! If you're actually a size 10 I think it would be true to size and i would try it unless you're a pear it might be too....revealing in the front with the pull.

Don't even bother

I'm only 5'4 and the slit in the front literally went up to my undies. No way can this be worn in public!

Great Springtime dress

A very lovely little floral dress. I liked the fit in the shoulders and bust but it was very roomy in the waist and hip. I would rent again but I definitely would get a size down. The detailing is expensive looking and the fabric has a nice weight to it as others have mentioned. I love Giambatista Valli dresses, but prefer the more fitted silhouettes.

Too small/short

I got a size 44 which was probably the wrong size anyway, but it was all that was available before vacation. It was way too tight to wear, and VERY short. Even if it fit I wouldn't have felt comfortable in it because of how short the slit was in the front (esp for someone like me with a big butt). Nice material though!

STYLIST REVIEW

Gorgeous print by Giambattista Valli! Running true to size, we recommend sizing up for back up. The fabric does not have any stretch. This style should be worn with a strapless bra. Pair with nude strappy heels and simple accessories for you next event!

RTR Team Review

I loved the colors and cut of this dress. It is the perfect summer dress. I am wearing a size 40 in the photo and it does fit true to size. I do recommend going one size up for your backup size and for curvier women. The dress was fitted at my hips but was not fitted at my waist. Even though it was fitted at my hips I felt very comfortable in the dress. This dress is great for any bust size. I am a 36D and felt very comfortable in it. This dress can be worn with a standard bra. I am 5’9” and the dress was knee length on me. The dress does have a slit in the front which does make the dress look shorter. Pair with black heels, big earrings and a small necklace.

The dress appears a lot shorter than "knee length" on you. In the picture it looks more mid-thigh length (without factoring in the slit). Is this a picture angle discrepancy?

One of my favorite dresses - So chic

I rented this through my unlimited to wear to work. Love the fabric and the cut - however it is pretty straight up and down so I would size up if you have a larger bust. Would rent again in the spring!

Cute Summer Dress

This dress had a nice pattern with somewhat thicker fabric, but still comfortable for Summer wear. Fit true to size. Wore it with a black short sleeve blazer and dressy shoes for work.

Different, fun pattern... short!

I loved the pattern and overall fit of the dress. It was very comfortable and had a nice weight to it. I was surprised by how short it was. I wore it to a fancy dinner with my boyfriend and had hoped to wear it to work too, but between being pretty short and having the front middle slit, it definitely was not work appropriate.

Too big, :(

Great Color, cut and fabric! But the size I ordered was big on me. I will try this one again when a smaller size is available

Such a great print!

I didn't end up wearing this because the fit was off. I ordered a size 44 because some reviews said dress runs small (but am normally a size 42). As is, I should have gone with the 42. There was a lot of fabric at waist which bunched up and made dress look a bit sloppy - my fault, not the designers!

Summer Perfection!

I loved this dress for a weekend at the beach. It took me from an afternoon of wine tasting to a upscale dinner in the evening. It's a bit short, but I wasn't uncomfortable wearing it. love, Love, LOVE!
