Beautiful color and quality but not for me

This Chiara Boni dress is a beautiful burgundy color. Perfect for a fall wedding or other formal affair. When I put it on, I wasn't as impressed. It hugged in all the right places but the criss cross in the front didn't lie perfectly flat and I didn't like the mesh 3/4 sleeves on me. I chose to wear the Christian Pelizzari Mixed Media gown instead. For me, it didn't have that WOW factor I was looking for. Maybe on someone else it would look beautiful.

Lovely Gown

Dress fit was just too snug through the bust, but fantastic in every other way. Loved the color and material, which has some give and is a bit thick and supportive. Very flattering! Lovely way to have a sleeveless look if you prefer sleeves. But this was an add-on to my rental, and I ended up not using it. Would needed to have sized up for bodice fit.

Classy gown for 5 months pregnant

The 40L was unavailable for me so I was super nervous the 42L would be too big. I ended up wearing it because apparently this dress runs small~ I'm usually a 4L in most dresses (5'7" tall, 134lbs, 34B bra size). With this dress I was clearly the 42! I think I could've even been the next size up too. Pros: beautiful color, modest, classy, & form fitting (has some stretch). This is my first pregnancy & I really want to show my bump with pride, not hide it! The material is thicker/ High quality & provides warmth. Cons: no zipper- just pull over your head. I needed some help from my husband. I didn't need a bra but I wore nipple stickers and they showed through a bit.

I was complimented so many times!

Fits tight but comfortable and the material is thick and stretchy. It is a dress you have to pull over your head because there are no zippers/buttons or any fasteners. It is true to size. I usually wear a 0 petite but I was able to pull of this dress in 38R which is regular length. I wore this with 4 1/2 - 5 inch heels and it barely graced the floor. Since the material is thick, the flare holds up and the fabric doesn't drop. Absolutely gorgeous. The color is exactly as it appears on the website.

Beautiful red gown

Wore for formal holiday benefit. 5'4 125 lbs. Dress covers everything which is nice but form fitting which was fine with me. Wore strapless backless bra to avoid strap lines. Floor length perfect for my height with 4 inch heels. Would rent again

This was my first choice but I ended up wearing the back up. The dress arrived with a ripped collar and if you have bigger Brest they will Bartley fit in the top

Perfect formal dress for winter!

I originally rented the Wine Olivia Gown to wear as a bridesmaid at my best friend's wedding, but there was an issue and RTR sent me this dress instead. I was so happy with their replacement pick! The fabric was thick, so great for cold weather, and it traveled exceptionally well. It's a little bit challenging to get on and off because there are no zippers or buttons, but there is some stretch in the fabric so that's not a deal breaker. I'm 5'2" and with 4in heels the length was perfect. From the fit to the color, this dress is a stunner!

Perfect formal winter dress!

This dress is a definite showstopper! Super comfortable and flattering - my one complain, and I should know by now - is this brand's signature fabric is warm!! Perfect for curvy girls.

the dress.

extremely comfortable, very flattering for the bust and all around- I honestly don't think the pic does the dress justice - I think it was the best looking, most flattering dress I have worn in 10 years. Seriously. The earrings were perfect with the dress- also can't see that it in the pics. I am 37 years old, 5 foot 7 and 135 pounds. And have 2 kids, one who is 18 mos, so the dress is also fairly forgiving!

Is was pretty but ran very small

I was given two sizes that were supposed to equate to 4l and 6l, I normally wear 6l. The 6l was so tight I could hardly get it off . Additionally, you have to pull it in over your head, there is no zipper or anything. So it really messes up your hair. I did not wear this dress

Loved it!

Loved this dress, and the fabric stretched to my figure so I imagine it works for most shapes. However as with most dresses, my hourglass shape means it's a little bigger on top and tight on the bum. Still looked nice, and I received lots of compliments!

Fundraiser gala celebrating the American Muslim community

This was my backup dress for a formal conservative event. It fit great, but was much more body con than I was expecting. The dress was very flattering but over accentuated my hourglass shape in a way that wasn't totally appropriate for this event. The fabric and mesh at the top highlighted my cleavage more than expected. For a different type of event, I would have loved this fit (my husband definitely did), but not for this event. Luckily it was very easy to include a wrap that covered my chest. I will also note that this dress is somewhat difficult to put on, no zipper, just stretchy fabric you pull on over your head, making hair and make up a bit tricky to do beforehand. The dress was very comfortable and I really enjoyed wearing it but wasn't quite right for this event.

I wore this to a black tie gala for work.

Ordered 40L & 42L, wore the 40L. True to size, fits like a glove. Wore spanx only because I don't like the look of seeing my belly button through fabric. Wore a strapless bra but no underwear to avoid lines. Low cut but the sheer fabric hides it well & gives the dress an extra sexy feel - I was at a function with co-workers so didn't want to be too revealing. Felt really confident in this dress. I wore high heels (3-4") so I am glad I went with the long, the regular wouldn't have looked right. I am 5'5", 34D, currently 136 lbs; when I wore this dress I was a few pounds heavier.

The dress was beautiful, I felt beautiful wearing it!

It's a snug fit. If you have curves probably go up 2 sizes! I'm pretty straight and I went up 1 size. The sleeves are also not forgiving so definitely size up.

An amazing night at the Tony Awards

The dress fit very well. I probably could have gone one size smaller, but I felt super comfortable. The length was good with ~2-3 inch heels. I wore a push up strapless bra to help the top fit perfect.

RTR Team Review

Rented this stunner for a theme party. Even though boobs are technically covered it is still definitely all about the girls in this dress! It's perfect for showing off an hourglass; the neoprene-type fabric smooths everything down and shows off defined curves. Lots of give in the hips and butt. You can wear this with a regular bra.

Elegant, flattering, and extremely comfortable!

Body-hugging fit that never feels tight or restricting in any way! I really love this dress: it looked and felt great! I received so many compliments, many from people I didn't even know! It was a little snug in the elbow and near the armpit, but otherwise perfect. I wore a 3" heel and the length was just right for this. The fabric was so thick and supportive that I didn't need to wear a bra. To put it on, I stepped into the dress through the neck (there are no zippers but the neck is wide and stretchy enough to pull the dress up over the hips; don't bother trying to pull it on over the shoulders...too complicated! This is the 2nd time I've rented a dress from this designer...and it won't be the last!

This dress looks much fancier in the photo than in reality.

The fabric is basically thick spandex like leggings, not really back tie appropriate.

This dress brings the drama!

I am 5'4" with 34 DD chest. I wore an adhesive bra and with the stretch of the fabric I felt solidly in place all evening. You will do best to have a Spanx like garment to smoothe. The dress fits like a glove. The dress runs true to size but I had to wear 2 inch heels to avoid the dress being too short. I ordered the regular length and it was perfect for my height. You can't go wrong with this dress--tons of compliments!

This dress was a huge hit!

I received compliments all night on this dress! The fit was true to size and held everything in place. I didn't have to wear a bra and the dress accentuated all of my curves. The dress is made with a very heavy material so it is very forgiving. I had someone suggest that I purchase the dress this time. This was my favorite RTR dress so far! I am 5'2" 125 lbs. Bra size 34D and am curvy. I am 47 years old

Not the look I hoped for

The dress arrived the day before I was flying to Mexico for my brother's wedding and I had no time to find another one or I would not have worn it. I'm a perfect size 6, but I ordered the backup dress in size 8 just in case. I'm glad I did, but the size 8 was still too tight, I needed a 10! It was very unforgiving around my midsection so my tummy looked terrible, , it kept riding up my torso, my girls were really bunched up in there, and it was extremely low cut. The criss-cross strips would not lay properly, so they looked askew all evening. The wedding was extremely formal, and as the sister and only family member present for the groom I was in a lot of the professional pictures, which I'm dreading to see. The attached iphone shots shows how unflattering this dress was on me. This was my second RtR dress and I wasn't very happy with either one.

This dress is classy and a gorgeous, elegant red color. Very figure-flattering.

I wore the larger back up size; the dress has little give and if you like a very tight fit to your gowns you may not be able to get it on! The larger size was perfect; I have an athletic shape with a long torso, short legs and small waist and breasts (36A), and this style was very flattering. I wore a nu bra and hose underneath. The length was perfect for walking and dancing (just grazing the floor in 2.5 inch heels).

Wore this dress to a black tie wedding in NYC. Absolutely loved it!

I adored this dress. The material is thick yet slinky - almost like a neoprene feel. Stretchy enough that I was able to slide my arms out to pump mid-wedding, and super comfortable! You pull the dress over your head to get it on, so keep that in mind if you do not want to wait to do your hair/makeup. I seriously felt like a million bucks in this dress. There is major cleavage going on, but it's covered by the sheer layer, which I felt kept things classy. You will not be able to wear a traditional bra without the straps showing. I wore one of those adhesive chicken cutlet contraptions as I am just not a braless kind of girl, but many women might feel comfortable without. (No shelf bra is included.) I would rent this dress again in a heartbeat!

Very sexy dress!

I was very self-conscious in this dress at first despite my husband's compliments. It was what i would call boob-a-licious. But the mesh his that somewhat. As the night wore on, I received more and more compliments and i was owning it by the time the evening was over. Perfect length with 3" heels.

Beautiful, but not what I expected

This dress is beautiful, but not what I was expecting. It's very thick and tight like spandex. There were no zippers so I had to put it over my head after hair and makeup. I didn't want to put it on beforehand because it's so thick and I would've been sweating while doing my hair and makeup. I wished the length would've been longer as well and I even used my height before renting. However, the dress came nicely package with no wrinkles! Returning it was a breeze too!

Comfortable and elegant

I wore this dress with a strapless bra and control top panyhose to a black tie optional local fundraising event. It is very comfortable and has stretch to it. The thick nature of the fabric smooths your curves. I would not recommend this dress for the self conscious because it really reveals all curves. Gorgeous deep cherry red color. I do think this dress would look better on someone with a bit more bust than I have, yet you dont want to be too busty as it may not fit well on top. I like this designer and have rented them before because they do well for my body type. Really like this dress, was perfect for the event but would not rent again due to slightly illfitting bodice on me.

This was my back-up dress, love the color didn't get to wear it because the other one was just a better fit. This dress is best for ladies with smaller busts but overall very nice.
