Stylist Notes

Exclusive to Rent the Runway! This elegant Tibi dress has an unexpected embroidery detail and cut-out back that gives it an elegant bohomian vibe. Since this is a backless dress try and pair it with Nu Bra's Seamless Adhesive Bra and Hollyhood Fashion Tape's Double Sided Fashion Tape.

Size & Fit

This dress runs true to size. We recommend going one size down for back-up size (see following fit notes for exceptions).

BUST: Great for any cup size
WAIST: Very fitted - fitted empire waistband flattering on midsection but consider sizing up if you have a broad ribcage
HIPS: Not fitted - pleating in skirt conceals lower abdomen
LENGTH: Mid-thigh - (on a 5'5" model)

UNDERGARMENTS: Should be worn with no bra or NuBra; dress has deep v neck so may be worn with a cami or bralet underneath for a more conservative look
FABRIC: Fabric has no stretch
GREAT FOR: All body types

Cute dress for my brithday!
Great fit! The back is very low, so make sure you have a bra that works.

Super comfy with a plunging neckline
This dress was cool and comfortable. I rented it for a summer outside event. I didn't wear it because of the plunging neckline. It looked good, but I'm a conservative dresser and I would have been self conscious.

Striking dress!
This dress was very striking, however, I didn't have the proper bra to amp up my cleavage, so I opted for a black camisole underneath. This was probably the best option, as I didn't have to worry about falling out of the dress at all. I wore this for a bachelorette party and all of the other ladies loved it! It was super comfortable and I would love to wear it again, especially with the proper bra!

Comfortable and fun dress for Vegas!
This dress has a flattering fit. It was short but since it was loose on the bottom, I felt comfortable moving around in it.

I ended up not wearing this dress because the belt was too snug on my rib cage, otherwise, fit great

Glamorous LBD, feel instantly put together with belt detail
Wore this to a cocktail attire wedding and fit right in at the amazing venue. The waist with the belt detail fit perfectly and the cutout in the back shows just enough skin. The chest was a bit too large for me, especially without a bra but was easy to fix with a safety pin. The belt is a lot more silver than in the picture, but didn't really match with either silver or gold jewelry. Fortunately you don't really need much, this dress makes you look very pulled together on it's own. I'd rent this one again.

Outdoor wedding in fall.
Dress looked great but had difficulties with the top. I had to wear a nu-bra (so you wouldn't see the closure in the back) but still had to pin the front because it was too big.

Wore it to a fundraising banquet for a non-profit.
I normally wear a 2, but wore a 0 in this dress. It was a little tight around the ribcage, but the overall fit was better. I'm a 32B, so some dress tape and an adhesive bra was all I needed in the bust area.

Shorter than expected!
The dress runs small. Luckily it was my back up. If it would have fit it would have been super cute but the waist detailing was too snug and the skirt was too short. There is a slit in back that showed off too much of the backside

I liked how comfortable and scandalous I felt at the same time. The top was loose, but secure
The fabric was nice, the belt cinched but comfortable and the skirt just long enough and constructed in a way that I didn't feel the need to pull it down all night. Definitely had to tape my boobs, but I did it minimally because I think the threat of nip slip is half the point for this dress. I felt exposed but the dress is cut so that it was very unlikely to happen if I just left it alone. I did bring a shawl in case I was feeling shy though.

SEXY YET CLASSY DRESS!
Most importantly, my husband LOVED this dress it was sexy yet classy...It is VERY LOW but with some double sided tape I was good to go! I probably could have worn the 8 but the belt felt a little snug on the 8...the back and sleeves were really nice. It was a well made dress and I wish I owned it!

Cute, simple, true to size, nice for pear shapes.
This was my backup dress for a formal event and I would have worn it but the other choice sold me with the gold lace. This is a great, simple and comfortable dress that works well for pear shapes. I ordered a 6 and it fit perfectly (I'm 5'1", 143 lbs). Works well with tights on a cooler night. Cute integrated belt detailing makes it easy to accessorize.

Not a great fit
Really low cut in the front. Fashion tape helped, but it was not as flattering as I hoped. The opening in the back was higher than I anticipated. I wore a regular bra, but had to make the straps as short as possible. Not very comfortable. The top hook in the back of the dress was bent, which caused it to constantly come unhooked. All night people were closing it back up for me.

Adorable & Sexy at the same time
I ordered this for a trip to Las Vegas. I loved the embroidered metallic waist - it's part of the dress and not a belt. The size 2 was perfect although I didn't quite fill out the bust...I'm pretty small on top. I had planned to wear my nu bra but would have needed double-stick tape to keep it from showing which I had forgotten. I went braless which worked fine as an alternative. The length of the skirt was great - short but not too short and the back detail is really cute. This is a great dress with a little sex appeal but not over the top. The one downside with this dress - the fabric at clips on the back waist had been a ripped a bit from prior wear - so when it was clipped up, it looked like it was pulling apart. this was a bit of a bummer but not enough to keep me from wearing it.

Loved the dress!!
I rented the dress for a summer wedding and loved it. The length was perfect, the band across the waist was super slimming and the top showed juuuust the right amount of cleavage. I pinned it but didn't necessarily have to. I have a small chest so there was so way they were falling out of the top of the dress. I got compliments all night long. Great dress, I would definitely rent again.

Pretty detail to liven up a LBD
I ended up sending this dress back because the clasps in back were very worn and showing. The 6 fit almost perfectly, but was a bit tight around the waist. I'm 6 weeks postpartum, so would most likely order the 6 again. The top could be a bit risque, but if you are broad shouldered like me it isn't really a problem. I would probably try and order this dress again.

Loved the look, didn't work for me
I really like the look of this dress in the picture, but unfortunately, I have a pretty broad ribcage and this dress felt like it was squeezing me to death. I opted to wear something from my own closet that was going to allow me to breathe. I would have definitely needed to use some fashion tape to keep the top in place if I would have worn it. I would recommend it for someone who is a bit more petite than me.

Did not end up wearing it
Typically wear a 6, so ordered a 6 and they did not have an 8 to send me. The 6 was way too small, the skirt clung to my hips and looked way too tight. Unfortunately I ended up wearing something I had as I waited to the last minute to try it on--my fault! Wish I could have tried it in an 8, it really is a cute dress! The embroidered belt is less “bright” in real life which I like better, and the back cut out detail so cute!

Didn't end up wearing the dress.
Key hole and the upper back fabric did not sit correctly on my shoulders and back- which left fabric too slack on front. I didn't want to be exposing myself that much at the party! Beautiful details on dress though- embroidery at belt area was gorgeous. Could actually see this dress being paired with leggings/booties too.

Beautiful dress. Very flattering. The gold accent on the dress is pretty but there isn't any stretch to it. It was a tad too tight so i ended up not wearing it.

I have a large chest and this dress just didn't look good on me. I felt rather over exposed, and the dress just didn't snug in the right spots. I love the style, but it just wasn't for me!

Very cute!
Very cute dress but beware that the embroidered belt has no give. I am typically a size 4 and it was very tight on my ribs. I could not zip it up all the way. Luckily with my hair down and some fashion tape you couldn't tell.

It was so comfortable and looked cute with flats :)
I had recently been in a car accident when I had to find a comfy dress for my best friend's birthday party. I ALWAYS wear heels, but was not able to after my accident and needed to find a cute, comfortable dress that would also look good with flats. This dress did the trick! I was incredibly comfortable and the dress went well with my Tory Burch flats. This dress is very simple, but classy...I would definitely rent again.

Great dress
I loved this dress. The design and material are great. The top was a little big, but I used fashion tape and it was fine. Also had to wear a nubra with it. I was comfortable and received multiple compliments.

Not great...
I am a 32D, and I struggled with the open back and low front. The clasp was also broken for the size that looked the best. I ended up not wearing it because it wasn't the best fitting dress (and the clasp wasn't working). Not one of my favorites...

I was very excited to wear this dress, but the fit was not what I expected.
This dress fit very tight at the waist and then very loose in top. I spent most of the night trying to make sure I was covered up.

Couldn't wear the dress.
The clasp on the back of the dress was too loose (maybe someone had stretched the dress?) so it did not look good from the back. i ended up wearing the other dress I ordered.

Beautiful dress. Wore this out for a bachelorette party.
Gorgeous, fun dress! Runs true to size but the only reason I have it 4 stars was the neckline was super low. I used fashion tape to keep it in place, but even with that, I had to be really careful. Was very mindful of it the entire evening which was a bit of a bummer.

Perfect dress for the occasion!!
The dress was amazing and I got SO many compliments! I truly enjoyed wearing it! One thing I will say is that it is difficult to wear a bra especially If you are fuller chested. I ended up wearing the 12 because I am between sizes. I did have to do some pinning of the top to keep the ladies in check. Also the clasp on the back came broken so I had to pin myself into it. Other than that I got SO many compliments and I will be renting from RTR again!

Great lines and beautiful detail
I love this dress, but it definitely requires a LOT of fashion tape if you plan to be moving around! I ordered my usual size (8) and the 10 just in case. The 8 fit perfectly, but the clasp in the back was a bit broken, so I ended up wearing the 10. I used two rows of fashion tape along the bust since it was fairly loose. I highly recommend this approach :) The material is great and the gold detail is really pretty. Lots of complements all evening. I will definitely be ordering this dress again for a trip to Vegas!

I wore this only 2 months after having twins and I felt sexy for the first time in almost a year!
The top was pretty baggy compared to the waist. But I loved the dress overall. Make sure you have clothing tape to make sure you don't fall out. Luckily I wore this to a bachelorette party so extra cleavage wasn't inappropriate!

Unfortunately, this dress was a little too tight, so I did not wear it. If I would have gotten a different size, I think it would have been perfect for my night out with friends! The length was fine and the back cut-out was super cute...too bad!

Does not fit right - do not rent!
I have a typical hourglass shape and thought this dress would look great. I could not close the clasp in the back in either the 4 or 6, and the top was incredibly loose and not flattering. Neither size worked and I returned the dress. I have rented several times from RTR before and usually love the dress I receive, but this was awful - choose another dress!
