Awesome color, flirty and fun!

Wore to a cocktail party - bright yellow was a hit! Fitted through the top and the fabric is pretty sheer so recommend a nude strapless bra. Bra will show through the back but only the lines. Otherwise, love the color and the style was really sexy but still sophisticated. Great for summer and paired with fun accessories.

This was my first time to rent from Rent the Runway. I rented this dress for Easter Sunday and the color/fit was perfect. Just wore a pair of Spanx underneath since the fabric is thin (not sheer). You could even throw on a blazer or cardigan for work. Loved it!

The color!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
Runs true to size, maybe a little big if you don't have a large chest. I wear a D cup and the size 4 was fine. The dress is fairly see through and the material is super thin and shows every flaw. I wore spanx underneath and it was fine/looked better like that. I wore a cross back bra, a strapless or halter would work too. The color is so pretty, and the arms are cut in a flattering way. It was just longer than mid thigh on me (I'm 5'2") I did wish it was a drop shorter. If I didn't have to wear the spanx I would give it 4 stars, but I was in Key West and wearing them in the heat was not ideal, but it looked so much better.

It was perfect! Just the look I was going for! The color was a stand out and the dress hit all the right places. Wrinkled a little bit from sitting on a hot day. Otherwise it was pretty effortless dress and easy to wear!

easy chic dress... fun bright color

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I generally wear an 8 in Tibi for a little extra length since I'm pretty tall, but it would have been better for me to wear the 6 in this particular dress. I only got the one size because it was my second dress. It was a little bit loose and a little bit long, but still very pretty. I loved the yellow... great color in person.

I rented this dress for my birthday party, along with the earrings shown, and was very happy. The material is a little different than I expected but it fit well and I loved the yellow. Would definitely recommend for a fun, flirty summer look.

I rented this as a back up for my high school reunion. It ended up fitting way better than the other dress. I felt comfortable and summery, but the dress is very plain. If you are looking for a "no tricks" dress, this is perfect.

I loved the dress, but I think it may need an extra silk layer underneath, because the fabric was a bit thin, and mildly see-through, so I had to be careful with what underwear I chose to wear. Fit true to size and was a fun bright color to wear!

I love Tibi! This dress was great, I wore it to a southern golf tournament in July and it was perfect! The only thing is that it is a little see through so make sure you have a beige slip under it!

I got compliments all night! The dress cut and style made it easy to eat, drink and dance in it all night! Only con is that the fabric does wrinkle a bit (as you can see from the pic). I would definitely rent this again!

RTR sent me this dress after a second size Iin another dress I ordered wasn't available. I loved the color. The fabric is nice, but it is pretty transparent. Be prepared to have nude undergarments. It runs small, so I'd recommend going up a size. There is a goofy pleat in the front that looks like the dress was too big and someone sewed it over to be smaller. I didn't love this dress and didn't wear it.

The cut is great and flattering but the color is slightly off compared to the photo. As a result, you have to be pretty tan to rock the look!

This was my back-up dress for the Masters golf tournament -- I wore my first dress to the tourney, but I wore this to brunch the next day. It was flattering and adorable -- would be fantastic for a shower or afternoon spring wedding. It was a bit sheer; Spanx do the trick.

This dress was a lovely shade of yellow, not too bright which made it perfect for a summer to fall transition piece. I wore my normal size 2, though it looked a little shorter on me (5'9'') than the model and less A-line than the photo appears. I was very happy with the fit and color.

Super cute dress. It was a little big on me but it worked out. That loose fit made me look kind of skinny? Anyways I liked it a lot. Such a lovely color. Perfect for summer. I definitely recommend it.

I loved how flattering and comfortable this dress was. The material is light and the construction is high-quality. I also really liked the v-shaped inset that is a little more sheer than the rest of the fabric of the dress and the small gather of fabric at the hip -- little touches that make the dress fun and interesting! I was very happy with this pick and received many complements.

Fit a little loose, the empire hem wasn't indented at all. Overall I really like it but some cons were that the color is not as bright as shown. Also its very thin which I was worried about sweating through.
