Stylist Review!

I really love this style! The mix of solid colors and patterns makes this dress truly unique.The style is overall fitted, especially in the waist area. The bust area is form fitting as well but has some stretch in the fabric and is therefore great for all bust sizes. The skirt is a straight style, so if you are curvy I would recommend sizing up. I love how most of the detail is towards the bottom so it's easy to pair this dress with a necklace - from pearls to a trendy statement necklace. This is a great summer dress for a fun day event!

RTR Team Review

I am in love with the colors of this dress. I am wearing a size 42 in the photo and the dress does fit true to size. I do recommend curvier women to size up for their backup size. The dress was fitted at my midsection and waist but not at my hips. This dress would be great for any cup size. I am a 36D and felt very comfortable in the dress. This dress can be worn with a standard bra. I am 5’9” and the dress was mid-thigh to knee length on me. This dress is perfect for a summer party or date. Pair with black heels and gold jewelry.

Solid, beautiful, unique, good for work

Rented for work. This dress is very unique and not "business as usual" and was still good for my office. I love the color combination, the heavy fabric (that was still good for summer) and the quality of the piece.

Beautiful detail

This is one of my favorite designers on RTR. The top runs a little smaller than some of the dresses but otherwise, is a tight, nice form fitting dress with gorgeous detail. It's a perfect dress for a Sunday brunch, daytime gala, or wedding.

Wanted to love it

This is a beautiful dress, unfortunately, just not a great fit. I did wear it to work, because it is such a beautiful dress. I typically wear an 8, but ordered the 10 equivalent as I am wide through the hips/thighs. It was a pretty good fit in that area and the waist, but the top was huge. This is definitely a better dress for those with larger chests. With the correct proportioned body, this dress would be great, I unfortunately, will not rent again.

Liked it a lot, but didn't quite love.

I really liked this dress. G.V. dresses are always high quality and this was definitely well made. However, the top was very big and the skirt was a little tight in the hips. As I wore the dress, it got bigger and bigger. By the end of the day, it was very baggy.

Just Okay

I was so excited to get this dress for a business meeting that I had to attend. But honestly, it was just "okay" to me. Nothing special and felt a little boxy. Maybe it was just my body. The material is super cute and it feels very high quality. Maybe it would be cuter on a smaller chest.

Nice Dress but runs small

Ordered my normal size but it didn't fit - definitely size up - there is no stretch in the fabric

Million dollar look!

This dress is a bit big in the waist. It fit in the bust perfect. There is no stretch in the material. You can wear undergarments if needed. In pictures the waist bulges a little bit from sitting and getting misshaped. Other than that I absolutely love this dress! I could not believe how beautiful the detail was when I opened up the bag. Everyone was complementing me all day everywhere I went. It was truly a million dollar look! Well worth the price. I would highly recommend renting this dress.

Beautiful details and color combinations

Love this Giamba dress. The color of the lace is brighter in person which is a wow factor.

Omg I love this dress

I wore this dress to my sisters wedding in July. I'm is gorgeous Fits snug around the waist and you have to have a flat stomach or this dress won't look well on you. It's a true sheath. But it is just an amazing dress.

I didn't think I'd like this as much as I did. It's the piece I most wish I could buy so far. I am so bummed I didn't get a picture. I will absolutely rent it again.

Well Made, Just Not Made For Me

It was a bit on the smaller size but my usual size wasn't available. It was still super cute though with beautiful embroidery

Fun dress

It's a heavier dress, so a little much for daily wear ... I wore it traveling from Florida to the Bahamas and it was very comfortable. I thought it was really cute.

Perfect for the interview portion of the pageant

It was a tad bit for me in chest area. Thick fabric but not terrible, used in Southern California and felt comfortable.

Never thought I would wear a $4600 dress!!

Dress looks much different in the picture. I thought it was all white until i got it and the bottom was light pink. The material was nice, well made, you could feel it was expensive. It did run small and didn't have room to stretch. Order a size larger. Not sure about the color combo, not my favorite.

The details and the colors on the dress are so bright and happy; has like a 60s Swag to it.

Absolutely beautifully sown and so many details. The fabric is amazing! Doesn't wrinkle, looks amazing after packed in suitcase. I luv luv this dress!!

Spring perfection

I have been eyeballing this dress for a special occasion FOREVER, waiting for a reason to spring for the rental price. Then magically it was available at my local RTR to try on and take home with my unlimited! I was stoked. Pros: colors are gorgeous, fit, length and structure were perfect. I was obsessed with the yellow detail! Arm hole fit and cut were perfection- no bra or side boob issues. Cons: dress may be starting to show wear? Or it was pressed funky on the bow at the waist. The only other con I can think of was that this is a true spring and summer dress- and even though it is March in CA it was raining when I got it so ..... guess I'll have to rent again?! Maybe it is t a con after all. I paired this with a black silk jacket (only because I had to for weather) and neon yellow rockstud pumps.

appropriate dress for dinner garden party with boyfriends parents

Typically wear a 4-6, sized up to 8 (M 44) in this dress per reviews and found it was generally slightly big on my 5'6" 140 frame. It does run small and has little stretch. Material is lined and thicker so it hides imperfections. Can be worn with a bra and any undies without seeing lines

Very cute design but with it came non wrinkled. The material is probably prone to be wrinkled

Fits very well, a bit too short for work and prone to wrinkle if you seat down with it for more than a few minutes

It looked nice online but wasn't for me unfortunately.

I'm 5'6 and a half, 150 lbs, 30 waist, 39.5 hips and 36D. I didn't like this dress. The shape and cut is perfect, but the style was not for me. It was a rental that looked nice online but not in person... to me anyway. I do have a vlog on Instagram: Mrs.chicchanel with a video to better show and explain.
