Wanted to love it but the length was too short! Fit is perfect everywhere else. Such a cute dress otherwise!

Make hips look gargantuan!
Great dress! High quality fabric. BUT not for curvy ladies. Put it on and made my hips look gigantic. Also, ran a little large, so fit was terrible

Obsessed!
Love, love this dress. People dress very fashionably at my work and rarely comment on my clothes but this dress-tons of compliments! It's flattering without being overtly sexy and it's also comfortable. One thing to note: it's rather short. I'm 5'2" (on a good day) and it rested mid-thigh and shorter when sitting. It was warm so I wore it without tights but taller ladies may want to pair with tights if wearing to work. This dress is good for busty ladies such as myself.

Fit- strangely?
This dress was... interesting. I got many compliments on it but it was huuuuge in the midsection (added a belt for definition) and tighter (but not actually tight) in the hips/butt. I am a true hourglass so this was an interesting fit for me. I received compliments on how cute it was but won't be renting it again because it mostly fit awkwardly.

Rented this for work.
The material was quite strange, felt like a combination of neoprene and acrylic. The dress itself was extremely heavy. It was very worn-in my the time it arrived to me. Didn't wear it. :(

Timeless work dress
The fabric and style of the dress make this a perfect outfit for work. Love the white details on the black dress which provides nuance to the basic black dress. The fabric is thick and holds its shape which makes it a great work dress. I received so many compliments on it in the office from "very Blair Waldorf" to "Jackie Kennedy". Would TOTALLY rent this one again in a heartbeat.

Extremely tight collar - not comfortable
I'm usually a size 6 (if not smaller) and I rented the 40 for work. This dress is really pretty and is a nice thick material, but it's extremely tight-fitting. I could zip it and it actually looked fine on me but I felt like I might pass out because the neckline was so tight (even though it didn't look like it was). I'm not sure sizing up would have fixed this, but I don't plan to try again with this dress.

Didn't end up wearing
Was obsessed with the design and photos so I couldn't wait to order this dress. Sadly think the fit might not be for me. I was a little concerned about the length so went with a 40. The length was fine but the fit was very boxy and loose around my waist. I may try to size down to a 38 but the neckline and fit around my armpits was rather tight in the 40.

Chic!
This was appropriate for work - it wasn't as short on me, even though I'm leggy. Looked great with opaque black tights. The fabric was thicker than I expected - good for air-conditioned offices.

Adorable dress, wish it had fit me better
This dress was super cute and I was excited to wear it. It did feel big, especially around my waist which wasn't ideal. It was comfortable but I honestly thought the fabric would feel a bit more luxurious given that it's supposed to be a $900 dress. I was thankful for the length as this is something I always worry about being a taller person. Overall I'd recommend the dress, just have reasonable expectations and make sure you are ordering the right size.

Beautiful dress, fits perfect. I'm very Petite but this hit above my knees. Only con is that the white collar is dirty. You can tell this has been worn A LOT.

Preppy, comfy and stylish dress for work and events.
What I loved about this what the material, which I could only describe as like a very thin wetsuit? And I mean that in the best way possible. Some dressed will crease after sitting for a few hours at your desk or dinner and this held its shape perfectly! It had some stretch, pockets (BONUS!!!) and was conservative but fun. I thought it might be too short from the photos, but the length fit me perfectly at 5'6". A little large at the waist, but because of the material it didn't fall weird and still looked great.

Party in the FRONT
this is the second red valentino i returned without wearing - these dresses aren't cut for curvy women - looked cute in front but the torso was short and awkward and the dress bunched up too much on hips and back.

Adorable and comfortable!
I loved this dress! Normally I go for more form fitting silhouettes, but I rented this as part of my unlimited and wore to a work party for my boyfriend. This picture is before I adjusted the bottom with some hem tape (I folded under about half the cream section at the bottom), which made it more flattering on me. I'm 5' 1.5" with very short legs and a long torso, and it was a great long for my taste. The waist was also large on me and and it was not as fitted on top as it seems on the model, but I adjusted that with some fashion tape as well, and it worked great. I was told by several people that my dress was the talk of the party! I loved it and would have gladly kept it!! The material is nice and thick and very structured, but it's very comfortable as well. I would highly recommend this for petite or narrow frames, even though the waist wasn't terribly fitted!

Comfortable and lots of compliments!
I loved this dress! I wore the dress to my Christmas party and received lots of compliments. It's a heavier sort of scuba material, I got the 44 and it was roomie and comfortable. I paired it with a cardigan, black tights and booties, red lips and sparkly earrings. I could have also done a sparkly necklace or dangling earrings (mine were posts, no dangle). The only thing was the sleeves, while short have a shape, they stand up a bit and it made it a little hard and slightly uncomfortable to wear a sweater over but I really was t all the bothered. I think I'm gonna hang in to this dress for a few weeks (under unlimited).

Comfy and classy
A classic piece that is playful yet chic. Wore this to school and received so many compliments. I'm all for dressing the part at school, take yourself seriously and others will too. For the east coasters, the fabric is thick and could be worn with tights on colder days.

Luxe look - cute but powerful
Liked this look overall but dress was too short for my comfort without wearing tights, and I'm short. I loved the pockets. Collar is unfinished (like a cut neoprene) and I wish it was constructed a bit differently. But a unique look appropriate for day into night.

It was a darling dress to wear to the office with tights and chic ponytail!
Really fantastic thick fabric that works for Fall and Winter. I wore it with black tights, pearl earrings, and black patent stiletto maryjanes. However, the white on the dress is not as crisp as it once was, still wearable but wouldn't pass for new. Girls with a large bust or arms should be warned as those are the areas it runs small in. Perfect dress for work that could go out to dinner after.

Fit great and good fabric quality. It is short, but at 5'3 that was fine. The pockets were a great plus

Order one size down
Great classic looking dress. I normally wear a 2 but ordered a 38 (US 0) based on reviews and I'm glad I did. Not very much give to the fabric, so keep that in mind if you are super concerned that one size down will be too tight

My Boyfriend Said I looked Like a School Girl.. but I loved it.
I wore this dress and received countless Wednesday Adams comparisons, but I've never felt cuter. I normally wear between a 6 and an 8, but got a 4 in this dress because of reading other reviews. It definitely fit, but the 6 probably would have fit better. Overall, I felt adorable in this dress and I've never gotten so many likes on an instagram post before! (lol)

So classic
The material on this dress is thick so it made it a bit warm to wear in the summer but such high quality. It did run a bit big especially in the waist, so I pinned it to give more of a fitted look.

Adorable dress, just didn't work for me.
I love this dress and I REALLY wanted to wear it. I rented it for a work trip to India but it just didn't look right. The waist is a little "blousey" and it poofed out making my mid section look big. But on someone a little taller and leaner, I bet it would look awesome but I am 5'6'' 145lbs....maybe when I lose 10 more lbs I can wear it! It is also a tad too short for my office....but I LOVE this style....I mean it's Valentino!

Beautiful, inventive dress
This dress runs quite big. I read some of the other reviews and opted for a size up (normally 2-4), and that was a mistake. I was swimming in the 42, and probably could have used a 38. Nevertheless, the dress was gorgeous pared with black tights and boots for winter. I loved the collar and white scalloped bottom hem! Heavy fabric, A-line fit (which is why you should size to your waist).

Fun, Flexible Use Dress - Loved it!
I loved this dress! Super easy to wear, comfortable and fun. I had it on Unlimited and wore it to a few different dinners while on vacation and also to a charity luncheon. It has a fitted waist but is flowy over the hips so it's comfortable to wear. I'm 5'2" so it was not overly short on me (unlike the model) and hit at my lower thigh. It's very heavy material, so it would not be good for a hot or warm environment.

good for work - to blah for a date
I did't wear it. The material is thick and kind of spongy. Even though it fit, it kind of neutralized what little curves I possess. I felt like little orphan annie or something. Totally fine for work but I needed a date dress.

Super cute!
Definitely a fun and youthful look. Fabric is neoprene so it falls very nice on the frame and actually is runs larger and has give like a wetsuit so I feel you can size down. I didn't and so waist was a little billowy but still looked polished . It is a bit short so I would wear to work with opaque tights.

Chic & Ladylike for My Engagement Photos!
I rented this dress for my Chicago engagement photos. I paired it with over-the-knee boots to add a little fashion edge to the otherwise sweet and ladylike style. My fiance absolutely loved this dress and my outfit; he couldn't stop gushing about it. I loved it too but would have loved it more in a smaller size. This dress definitely RUNS LARGE. I'm typically a size 6 in dresses, sometimes an 8 if the brand runs small. Considering this dress' sizing is European, I played it safe and ordered 44 (= US 6) and 46 (= US 8). The 44 was loose overall, and it was most noticeable in the neck and waist. I wish I had gotten a size 42 (= US 4) instead, because I likely would have worn it. I didn't even try on the 46 because it would have been huge. I'm an hourglass/pear shape with a small waist and the dress was pretty loose in the waist and not as fitted/tailored in the bodice and waist as I would have liked. In some photos, I look thicker in the middle than I am because of the loose fit (you can see the looseness in my second photo). Previous renters mentioned the dress was too short, but it wasn't for me: It hit mid-thigh, which was perfect with my tall boots. Ultimately despite the looser fit, I loved the style of the dress and how comfortable it was (the fabric is thick but breathable). It was exactly what I wanted for my photos. I got lots of compliments! This dress can be really versatile for a variety of occasions based on how you style it, too. My order arrived on time and packaged beautifully in a high-quality garment bag. Both dresses were freshly cleaned and pressed. My only complaint about the condition of the dress is that fabric on the collar of the dress I wore was starting to separate, so from some angles it looked as if fabric was hanging down. Thankfully it didn't show in my photos. Overall: This is an amazing dress that I would definitely recommend -- just order a size down!

This dress is enormous.
It was an unlimited rental. I put it on and then sent it right back. I'm a D cup and I had so much room. Definitely size down, 2 sizes even. Even though I had more than enough room in the chest area, the fit wasn't flattering. Since it's a high collar, I just don't think it would have been flattering. My intent was to wear this for work.

Knockout dress that earned compliments everywhere I went!
This has the 'wow' factor I was looking for in a party dress. I also wore it to work with a white skinny belt and got stopped over and over again with compliments. I love this dress and the generous pockets on the sides! Thanks, RTR!
