Stylist Review

A stunningly flattering sheath by La Petite Robe di Chiara Boni. Running true to size with a lot of stretch, we recommend sizing up for backup. My typical size 2 fit perfectly and was very comfortable throughout the bodice and arms. It's important to note that there is no zipper so you do need to step into this dress. Pair with clean heels and simple accessories for an overall chic look.

Beautiful dress but fits tighter than her other styles

I love this designer and this is the second dress I have rented by her. The first one in size 38 fit like a dream but I rented this one which is made from what is apparently different fabric and it was almost too tight to wear. Love the color and quality though. Upside/downside is it is MUCH sexier than it seems. I was expecting to wear it to a work occassion but I would definitely not. This is a sexy date dress!

Sexy and comfortable!

A great dress with just enough sex appeal...the cutout doesn't overexpose, but a larger bust could reveal more cleavage (not always a bad thing!) The stretchy material is scuba-like, but more comfortable and lighter. Good length. I sized down and was glad I did; the next size up appeared to fit fine, but the entire dress kept bunching up in a decidedly unflattering way. No zipper, so be prepared to shimmy into it. Gorgeous color, got a lot of compliments!

Sexy, elegant and highly recommended.

I LOVED wearing this dress, hugged all curves in the right places. The draped design was flattering and did not add inches to the look of my hips. I am between a 4 and a 6. I rented the 4. It was tight, I was squeezed in but it looked tasteful. There is no zipper. When first trying on I tried to pull over my head with no luck. I’d recommend ‘stepping’ into this one. If you want to breathe OR have a medium/large bust size up, if you want to look super sexy go with your regular size. The fabric holds you in and smooths out bumps. The color is insane. It's elegant, rich and so much better in person. It’s super classy and super sexy. Compliments all night. Overall, one of my favorite rentals.

Pretty but...

The dress runs big. I am a true 8 and could have used a 44 instead of the 46. It would have been more flattering if it was a little tighter and snug along my midsection, but it still worked and I got lots of compliments and it was perfect for the event I wore it too. Conservative but with just a little sex appeal! My only complaint is there is no zipper so you have to pull it on and off over your head, and for such an expensive rental, its all raw cut edges, no hems. Still it looked great and the color is perfect!

Fabulous dress with great lines

The dress is figure hugging but thick material so it holds it all in the maroon color was beautiful for a fall wedding. I'm 5'8" so the length was perfect on me. They only had a size 4 but I think the 6 might a fit better. It was a little tight. I would def rent again.

I felt like royalty- this dress just makes you ooze confidence!

I was nervous about this because the largest size available is my smaller size, but the fit was amazing. Plenty of room in the chest (I'm a 32G), the hips fit perfectly, and the wave of fabric down the front was exactly what I needed for my 2 month post baby belly! This dress is just simply amazing.

very pretty dress for a fall wedding

This was my first RTR experience. The dress ran larger than I anticipated as my smaller size (the 44) was still a bit big.The color is a tad bit more purple than the stock picture but very flattering. Overall a very pretty dress that was appropriate for a fall wedding but the 44 (approximately a size 6) was too big and the 42 probably be perfect but I had no time to get another size shipped. I might recommend actually going a size down for your back up. I paired it with a gold clutch, nude heels, and some subtle silver and pearl jewelry. I also wore it with a regular strapless bra and had no issues with it showing.

Flattering, elegant and conservative

I didn't wear this but only because the jumpsuit of similar design is so fantastic. The material is a little stretchier/cheaper than it appears online but it's still beautiful. It felt a little too conservative for a cocktail party but there are plenty of occasions this would be perfect for. Size down just a little so it doesn't gap in back, it's very stretchy.

Love this designer. It is great for curvy girls like me!

I love the stretch material. It is thick and high quality so it helps to disguise flaws. This is the third dress I have ordered from this designer. The slit on the top adds a flirty quality. The only con is that the top was a bit lose on my and I am quite busty.

Felt so glamorous and classy-- with an edge. Love the gorgeous plum color and the thick fabric!

This dress is a winner! I ordered a jumpsuit for my friend's wedding, but it didn't fit, so I'm SO glad I ordered this dress as a back-up. The fabric is heavy in the right way-- feels so smooth and comfy/stretchy. It doesn't have a zipper (pull it overhead) so be careful not to get makeup or deodorant on it! I got so many compliments on the way it falls-- I was even able to wear a strapless bra to enhance my chest with the cutouts too! I would even have sized down one size to make it a big more snug but they didn't have the smaller size for a backup. Gorgeous fall color-- love this dress-- wish I owned it.

Wow!

Gorgeous, unique dress that is incredibly flattering. It's conservative but still sexy and edgy with the ruffle and cut out. I am usually a 10-12 and I definitely could have worn one size down but the larger size still worked. The fabric has a lot of give and stretch to it.

This dress fit well and was very flattering. The size chart is a little off, seems to run big.

Very flattering material, it's stretchy and gives where you need it to. The neckline with the cut out is sexy yet classy. I normally wear between a size 6 and 8. The size chart says a size 46 is an 8, a 44 is a 6 and a 42 is a 4 but I had to exchange the original rental for a size 42 because the 44 was too big. RTR was very helpful in getting me the size I needed in time for the party. The color is a little darker/deeper burgundy than it appears in the sample picture. All in all I loved the dress and the experience.

Great night at a friend's wedding in a beautiful dress!

The dress is gorgeous on, and very figure flattering, but the slit at the top makes is awkward because it can ride up and bunch at the slit. It would be better worn with fabric tape utilized on top. However, the fit and look of the dress were perfect!

This is such an elegant looking dress but unbelievably comfortable at the same time.

The slit allows this classy dress to have a little sex appeal. The dress not only looks but feels high quality. Both the 42 and 44 fit but I felt more comfortable in the 44 so having the backup size was convenient.

This dress is gorgeous and very comfortable. It is more of a thick stretchy material that seems to run big. I got several compliments and felt beautiful and comfortable all night.

Simply stunning

I typically wear a size 6 for more fitted dresses. I ordered the size 42 and 44. I never even tried on the larger size because the 42 fit like a glove. The fabric of the body feels like a light weight neoprene and is very forgiving and comfortable. I did need to purchase a strapless bra, but that was a small sacrifice. The color is rich and was a comfortable alternative to the sea of LBDs at the event. I would love to wear this again. I received many so compliments in this sophisticated piece.

First time to rent a dress. It was perfect!!!

Loved the dress! This was my first rental and I was very impressed with the quality. I can easily fit into a size 8, but the 6 was more form fitting. I was concerned that the side ruffle/gathering that it would be to much, it wasn't at all. Keeping your shoulders back is a must in this dress, the cut out in front will sag if you don't. I would wear this dress again!!!

Great dress

This dress is a great balance of sexy but conservative (enough). I wore it for my boyfriends law school graduation and everyone loved it. I would buy it in a heartbeat. I would say it runs small though. I generally wear a 0 or 2 and I wore the 42 (which is supposed to be a size 6). I could have worn the 40 but I didn't need it to be any tighter (or sexier). The top cut out is great, I will be renting this again for sure!

New Year's Eve dinner with friends, needed a festive dress.

Fabric and design beautiful, flattering and forgiving

This is a dress I would love to own. You can wear it as a casual dress with boots (which I did for Thanksgiving) or it could be far more formal with heels. The color is between a wine and a purple, really unusual and pretty. The cutout at the neck is just edgy/sexy enough. Combined with length of sleeve and dress it goes from date night to middle school (Mom attending) concert. Really versatile, love, love, love!!

I wore the dress to a very dressy charity event. The look was perfect.

This dress fits like a glove. The material is heavy enough to compliment your figure, yet does not make you hot. The side ruffle is a lovely design feature. Especially flattering is the neckline....off the shoulder and the slit on top looks great and makes your neck look long and arms look thin. I received many compliments all evening and would wear it again. It also makes you stand straight with your shoulders back...never a bad thing!

Simple & Beautiful

I wore this dress for Christmas Dinner with my family. It was very comfortable and fit well. I was a little concerned about the length being that I am on the shorter side bit the length was fine and I had no issue walking. It's a wonderful dress for those events where you want to look nice but not too over the top. I paired this dress with the Black Cherry Dagger Earrings by Alexis Bittar, which are also available to rent. All in all, I would highly recommend this dress to all, especially the 00/0 framed people. The fit is perfect!!

Say yes to the dress!

This dress was comfortable and perfect for the wedding I attended. I normally wear a 4 or 6 and chose the 4 (size 42), it was a bit tight, but fine. I did have to keep my shoulders back as suggested in another review. The fabric was great and the wrinkles fell right out after taking out of the shipping garment bag. The only negative was it being a little difficult to get on and off over my head.

The dress fit like a dream. The fabric is very forgiving and the cut is very flattering. As I saw in other reviews, you have to stand up straight, so that the fabric doesn't sag around the bust area.

This dress was AWESOME. I felt like 1,000,000 bucks!

PRO's: The dress fits a little big (a 48 is an 8 in US) and is extremely comfortable. The fabric is stretchy, but gives in the right places. I'm a busty girl and I was VERY worried because I can run up to a 14 on top, but am an 8 on the bottom...this dress worked GREAT for accomodating my body type. CON's: The dress definitely doesn't hide your belly - buy Spanx if you are worried about "smoothness" :) The dress is longer than I thought it would be (I'm only 5'4), but it really worked at my formal work party.

Great color and it hugs every curve (but flexible enough to move around in).

The off the shoulders look was great, but I had to constantly tug them down throughout the night to make sure the top didn't bunch up.

Luv this dress!

I am big chested so I usually have to order a dress that fits me on top and then is far too big on the bottom. This dress has some nice stretch to it so it fit me nice and snug on top and the bottom looked great. I absolutely love the dress. I felt great all night and received compliments all night long.

This dress was perfect for a wedding. I've rented from this designer before and I was not disappointed. This dress is ver comfortable. I wore a strapless bra with this dress since it is off the shoulder. I would definitely rent this dress again.

The perfect combination of classy and sexy! Got tons of compliments even though the size was big.

The dress runs large- you have to make sure it's snug so that the ruffle details show and the peek-a-boo lays flat. I'm usually between a 6 and an 8 depending, and wore a 6 but as you can see in the photos I could've done with a 4. It's also very long- I'm 5'6 and the dress hit just below my knee. Might not be desirable for shorter women as the length would prove awkward.
