Beautiful color

This style is a very boxy shift dress fit. It runs short and thought I could have sized down but it would have made it a lot shorter.

Gorgeous!

Runs very big. I sized down two sizes and had plenty of room. The sleeves are very long, but I think it's a design decision. Would absolutely rent again. The color is stunning!

Beautiful fabric but too overwhelming for petites

I wanted to love this but I ended up feeling like Grimace in it! It's a beautiful color and expensive fabric but it was so unflattering on my petite frame and made me look heavier than I am.

Love this comfy dress!

Very comfy and easy to wear. Good length as it hits just above the knees. Good for ladies with a little 'junk in the trunk' or food baby ;) Was loose but I wanted it that way so I was free to move and dance and give hugs to friends. Rocked it with white booties and big earrings for a 70's vibe

Wish it worked

This dress just didn't work for me. There was something weird with shoulders, like there were shoulder pad in the dress. Also, the sleeves were too long.

Perfect dressed up or down

I wore this dress three nights in a row. Seriously! Found every reason to keep wearing it. It is quite large so size down 1-2 sizes. I will order the size zero next time I rent it. Super easy to wear, comfortable and a brilliant color! Love the dress but too pricey to buy ;)

Amazing dress but a bit short!

Great dress! Color and fabric is amazing but be aware this dress is short! I would have worn the 0 but due to the length I had to go with the 2. Overall the dress worked perfectly for the event!

A bit much in person

Loose fit with some cling. It was a little garish in person--the combination of bright purple and shiny plisse ended up looking like something from 1980s Dynasty, which was not a look I wanted to revive.

Beautiful color but it runs very large

The dress is just as pretty in person as it is in pictures but this dress runs very big do to the pleated stretch fabric. It lost out to other dresses for events I had while it was in my closet because of this. I will probably rent it again but will size down another one!

Beautiful color & flattering fit

This dress was perfect for NYE parties, the color was stunning in person and it was very flattering and fun. I really recommend it, and it's actually warm so I was not super cold styling it without tights. Really forgiving too after the holiday feasts!

Great for Disco Theme!

I rented this dress , Along with three others For a formal wedding. I knew this dress would work because of the very relaxed fit. When it got to me it wasn't quite right for that formal wedding, but it was perfect for the murder at the disco New Year's eve party that we are going to. Super fun dress but definitely size down as it is really large, but very forgiving.

Great color, Runs HUGE

I rented this for a formal affair in a 6 (I'm normally a 6, an 8 in something very fitted) and it was HUGE. It Looked like I was playing dress up in an 80s closet, so I ended up wearing something else to the event. A few days later, I ended up throwing a leather jacket over this dress and wore it out to a nice dinner since I already paid for it. The color is really fun but definitely go down a size or two.

Beautiful color

I rented this dress for a formal party in California and loved it! The color is amazing and vibrant, almost with a silvery touch to it. The dress is a bit boxy and I'm not giving it 5 stars because it's a tad short (I am 5'8), so i ended up wearing bike shorts underneath. I wore large silver earrings and silver shoes to complete the look. Got tons of compliments but am happy to have a statement piece like this only as a rental and not in my closet forever.

Vibrant purple. Boxy fit.

Loved the color and the material. The cut was too boxy on me. Tried a 4 and 0 (2 wasn't available). 4 was too boxy. My 8 year old told me it made my shoulders look huge so back it went!

So many compliments

Loved this Tibi dress. I'm 5'3 and it was the perfect length however a little long in the arms which caused bunching that I didn't like. I got so many compliments! My only con for this would be that it if any water got on it from a drink, it wouldn't dry fast and clearly showed. Other than that, I loved it and will rent again!

Looser fit but flattering! Love the color. Arms a bit long, but I think folding up the sleeves is cute.

Perfect for a winter party.

Yes! This dress was perfect for a winter party. I ended up styling with black leggings and booties because it was infinitely colder than anticipated, and it was great. The shorter length and bright color made the look fun and sexy, while the looser fit and long sleeves made it work without trying too hard.

Fun and classy!

This dress is amazing!!! I wore it to a black tie optional wedding and got a TON of compliments! The material is so much fun and the color is to die for! I'm really glad I read the reviews because it does run big. I could've worn a 0. I will def. Be renting this one again, prob one of my favorite rents so far.

Beautiful and comfortable dress

Dress ran large as I normally wear a 10 but I definitely could have used an 8. Was longer than I wanted and very long in the sleeves. Luckily the way the dress is designed, I was able to fold the sleeves under easily and it held all night. Felt very comfortable and received tons of compliments.

60s Style Glam

I had a 60s style Mad Men birthday party and wore this dress. I did size down and I can see how on thinner or shorter women they would swim in this dress. But it hid my larger middle section well and fit great everywhere else. I wore 2" heels, as any higher, of course the dress gets shorter. The color pops and I got many compliments on my look!

The color of this dress is unreal!

A lot of the reviews say to size down but I rented a size 4 and I'm usually a 4 in dresses and I thought it fit perfect. I wore it belted though. If you're not belting it at all I think you could maybe size down one size but then it might be too short. I would've done a size 4 regardless! I got sooo many compliments on this dress - the color is stunning and even more beautiful in real life. It wasn't a heavy dress at all so I think could work well in warm and cool temps! Overall LOVE!

Overall too big, even for a pregnant lady

Had no shape to it. I believe if I went down a size it would have fit better. Had a coworker who rented this and it looked great on her. Maybe just a sizing issue for me

Runs big!

I should have read the reviews better and sized down, because the 8 came and is HUGE! Unable to wear, so I'm sending back in my unlimited and sizing down to a 4 or 6. I love the colors though and hopefully it works in the smaller size

RTR Team Review

This was one of my favorite rentals! I am glad I read the reviews because this dress runs extremely large. I am usually a 6 and opted for a 2 with a backup size 4, I ended up wearing the 2 and probably could have even worn the 0. The color is so vibrant in person and the material is very stretchy and comfortable.

Loved the color! I received multiple compliments all evening.

Comfortable and classy. This dress is unique and the sleeves are a little long so I rolled them slightly and it actually worked well with the style. Beautiful color and quality material. Tons of compliments.

Gorgeous in Purple!

The color of this dress is perfect. I wore it to a company holiday party with black tights and it was a hit. I took the advice of other reviews and sized down. I'm typically a 6/8, and the 4 worked nicely.

Perfect Party Dress!

I loved this dress so much, I wish I had more to wear it to! I wore it out for my bday - drinks and dinner. I got lots of compliments. I sized down to a 0 and at 5'7" I didn't find it too short.

Comfortable show-stopper!

I wore this to a friend's rehearsal dinner and got several compliments. It definitely runs large and I suggest sizing down 1-2 sizes. I'm shorter so it hit perfectly on me, but could see this being really short on someone taller. The dress was so comfortable all night and I felt great in it. Will rent again and possibly buy!

I rented this as a wedding guest dress option but decided to go with a different dress.

This Tibi dress is stunning in person. The color is dynamite. The plisé adds dimension and texture. The fit is perfect for when you don’t want form fitting, but don’t be mistaken it doesn’t fit like a potato sack. Nor is it grumpy. It would be perfect for a party or a New Years gathering. Definitely going to keep the one in the Favorites.
