Great summer wedding dress! Received so many compliments and the back is gorgeous! Had a bit of trouble keeping it on my shoulders, but the fashion tape kept it in place! Thanks also to RTR for everything because without them my dress would have never arrived in time :)

This dress is definitely a stand out piece! I got compliments all night long. Open back is sexy and even though the shoulders are prominent, it makes the outfit unique.
I rented this dress for a concert and I was amazed at all the compliments I received all night. The open back is gorgeous and I paired mine with nude high heels. It fit mini on me, I'm 5'9" and it barely covered my bottom. I must say, the shoulders are large. I had to consciously make sure that I stood up perfectly straight so they would stay in place. I have skinny shoulders so if you have broad shoulders this is a perfect dress for you.

I rented the dress for a Social Networking party. I love this dress and got tons of compliments. I didn't wear a bra with this dress and usually wear a size 4 but I ended up wearing the size 2 instead. Highly recommeded!

If you're in the mood to receive tons of compliments, then you should rent this dress. I loved it! However, if you have narrow shoulders it might be a difficult dress to pull off because the shoulders are a bit broad. I don’t have that problem, but I could see it being an issue for some. Other than that, perfect!

Wore this dress to an outdoor summer wedding and received lots of compliments. Best if you want to stand out a little as it's definitely unique. Runs almost true to size but the back was a little baggy on my frame so I used double sided tape to keep it in place.

Runs small in the hips. The dress goes a lot more straight down then I expected, but thankfully I got two sizes so it all worked out. If you usually need to go up a size in pencil skirts, then do the same with this dress. I don't like things to be too tight around my hips/ butt, but then again that is personal preference. This dress is beautiful and fun! You'll be sure to get a lot of compliments!

I'M 5'9" 130LBS. A 0 IN MY BUST & A 2 IN THE HIPS.. THIS DRESS IS HOT HOT! THE BARELY THERE BACK & MINI FIT WAS THE PERFECT COMBO FOR A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN. I LITERALLY GOT A DOZEN COMPLIMENTS :) RENTED IT FOR A SHOWER, BUT REALIZED IT WAS A LITTLE TOO SHORT TO WEAR IT TO THAT KIND OF OCCASION, SO IF YOURE TALL, BEWARE! IT'S SHORT ;) BUT PERFECT FOR A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN!

Beautiful dress! I am usually between a 10 and a 12 and ordered the 10 after reading reviews about it being large due to the open back. I have a very flat butt and narrow hips, but it was still so tight around the bottom! Also, the cap sleeves did not fully cover my armpits. The shoulder pads caused them to raise up, which I felt looked awkward. I was sad to send it back because it is very pretty.

This dress is just as cute in person as it is in pictures. I usually wear a 6 but read that it is small in the hips so I went a size up. The 8 fit perfectly in the hips but was too big on top and I had to keep my wrap on all night to keep it from falling down. Still, it looked great just didn't have the full effect. Not ideal for pear shapes.

This dress ran shorter than expected, even with the height suggestion for a 5'10 person. It was still very pretty and everyone loved it, the back was very low without being innapropriate. I would recommend it to anyone. Just order a size up if you don't want it super short.
ChristineApril 25, 2012
I was just wondering how short was "shorter than expected". I'm about this height/weight and I need to wear this to a rehearsal dinner.
RTRMay 3, 2012
Hi Christine, this dress is this dress is about 33" from shoulder to hem and will be very mini on your height!

This dress is gorgeous in person. The only comment I have is that I own several (as in, more than 5) Tibi dresses and I had to go a size up for this particular dress as it was pretty tight through the thighs.

Cute, but not wowing
Rented this for dinner and drinks on my birthday. I'm a sucker for colorful prints. So though this is a spring/summer dress, I had to get it to inject some color into this drab winter. FIT: I'm 33-26-34. I fit anything from size 0 to size 4. I rented the 2, and 4 as backup. The two fit great--but it was slightly a little roomy in waist (0.5 extra) and hips (1-1.5 in extra). If you like things to fit like a glove, and you're my body size/shape--probably size down. Also I have broad shoulders so I had zero problems with the open back or shoulders sliding down. DRESS: I love Tibi. And I had been dying to try out a Tibi dress. This is gorgeous printed silk. The colors as very vibrant and certainly didn't disappoint this chromoholic. But if I could have this redesigned, I'd edit out the weird beige giraffe print on the shoulders and hips (which seemed a little kitsch... not stylish), and I'd add something onto that yellow to break up that space (which felt like a giant bib... again not so stylish). Overall, dress is awesome for the colors, but not quite drop-dead gorgeous. THIS RENTAL: Dress was clean, not many signs of wear. There was pilling on the inside. Outside fabric was smooth.

Wow-Factor and colorful
I wore this to my homecoming, and it was perfect. I got so many compliments and I stood out so much more compared to everyone else! I would very much suggest this dress for a dance. It fits true to size, and is very flattering if you have a small waist. Be careful of you have a slight tummy because it has a slight poof in the front. It ends miid-thigh and I'm 5'6" - I thought it was slightly long.

I LOVE this dress! Definitely better for women with broader shoulders but it wasn't a bid deal at all!! it fit great, the length was perfect and I loved all the colors! I will definitely rent this dress again!

Tibi Calla Lily Dress
I rented this for my bridal shower. The dress fir great through the hips and the length was good. One thing I didn't take into account was not being able to wear a normal bra. Because I'm fairly small through the best area, the dress was a bit baggy in the shoulders. I think the 4 would have worked best, but it was unavailable for the weekend I needed it. I would definitely rent this again, as long as the 4 is available.

EVERYONE in my high school complimented my dress
I rented this dress to wear to my high school's valentine's day dance. It fit very well and was extremely flattering to my figure. I got countless compliments on it- from both guys and girls. My only complaint would be that it was well-worn- small things like the hem in the back not being straight and the fabric next to the zipper had been badly sewn back up. However, I was the only one who could notice these details, so it was no big deal.

Got so many compliments on this unique and beautiful dress.
I was obsessed with this dress from the moment I laid eyes on it, and it did not let me down! I wore it for my sorority's fall formal. I was worried it might be too tight/short to dance in, but it was perfect. Would recommend this dress to anyone who wants to stand out from the crowd.
GenevieveSeptember 25, 2012
Did you think the dress was to short?
AlexisOctober 3, 2012
No, not at all! I was worried it might be but it was the perfect length. However, if you like things to be a little longer I wouldn't recommend it.

This was my first rental and I was more than pleased! This dress is gorgeous in person. The colors are so vivid and somehow go together even though they are so different. It fit me perfectly - fitted at waist, but not too tight, and short (mini/mid thigh) but thats how I like to wear my dresses, because I'm so short. Highly recommend this one! Wish I could buy it!
KaityJune 11, 2012
how was the fit on the front of the dress? im your height, and with also a larger chest (32c) so im always so worried about not wearing a bra!
RTRJune 11, 2012
Hi Kaity, the fabric on this style is relatively thick so you will be supported. We recommend a NuBra with this style for more support.
KellyJune 19, 2012
Kaity, the fabric is pretty thick and its lined as well. I knew I wouldn't feel comfortable without a bra, but I'm sure some gals could get away with it! I wore the NuBra in a B cup (I always go down a couple cup sizes with strapless bras) and I felt totally secure, I didn't even think about it the whole day.

Best Dress Ever!
This dress fits true to size. I am 5'4 and 115 lbs and I rented a 2. The material is so nice and the colors are just as vibrant in person as they are in the picture. The open back is the best part! (must have nubra) I have rented from RTR before but this is by far my best rent. I got tons of compliments!
SarahMay 8, 2012
Since you wore this to a formal event, did you feel underdressed? I have a night time wedding coming up and I am worried it won't be dressy enough.
RTRMay 9, 2012
Hi Sarah, this Tibi style can be styled up for an evening wedding with accessories and a great pump!

All my friends kept asking if they could borrow the dress! I directed them to RTR!
Great dress! I got several complements. I wore it to a graduation and to the after party. I paired it with Tory Burch flats to make it a little more casual. Given that it was backless the top of the dress is loose compared to the bottom. I kept the sleeves from slipping by using the double sided tape that RTR provided! If I rent it again I think I will get the 4 instead of 6. It was 90+ degrees on the day I wore it and the open back gave some relief and no sweat marks showed! Great dress overall!

so many compliments even from people I didn't know!
Overall I really liked this dress and so glad I ended up renting it! I got MANY compliments. I rented 4 and 6 and wore 6. The 4 was too short and tight in the seat area for me. The 6 was a little looser / comfortable for a wedding ceremony and reception (dancing!) The shoulders on the 6 were a little loose (I have a small upper frame / torso) but not to the point of being uncomfortable / self conscious.

Finding the perfect dress for my sorority formal!
This dress was a blast to wear - beautiful colors, comfortable fit, open back. I wore this dress to my sorority spring formal. The cut of this dress is very flattering as it made my waist look tiny! The dress runs true to size. I'd love to own this one!

Great delivery, great price, great deal. The dress really stood out.
I have never received so many compliments - so many people told my boyfriend that he had to buy this dress for me. A great statement piece and no one else at the party will be wearing it. Really comfortable and flattering. The striking pattern is extremely thinning.

At the wedding, a girl came up to me and said, "WHERE did you get your dress? I have to have it!" I told her that I wanted something super fun for the wedding so I rented this from Rent The Runway. Her Dad chimed and said, "Well, it's definitely working. Your fiance hasn't left your side all night!"
This dress fit perfectly and is true-to-size! It is so incredibly beautiful and I received SO many compliments throughout the evening. It was extremely hard for me to send it back :) If you want something different and jaw-dropping, this is the perfect dress for you!

Everyone loved the dress and were asking where they could find it.
I am a full hip kinda girl so it was a bit more snug in that area then in others but overall was a great dress to wear for a fun night out.
brookeAugust 23, 2012
Do you actually know your specific hip measurements? I usually wear a 10 too but my hips are the biggest part of my body so I'm wondering if I should size up?
RTR CustomerSeptember 19, 2012
Hi Brooke! This dress is fitted in the hips, so I would absolutely recommend sizing up for this dress!

A great night in a dress I felt very confident and well dressed in.
Rented for an outdoor, summer wedding. I am generally a size 8, but got the 8 and the 10. The 8 didn't even zip up and the 10 was snug in my tummy; I had to go out and buy spanx to seal everything in. It definitely fits small in the hips and tummy area, but everything else was good. I am short but a bit curvy and this worked well on me--although much like others said, the shoulders are a bit large. Otherwise, it was a fantastic wedding guest dress. I received many compliments; felt sexy but classy with the open back. Just after I put the photo on my Facebook, the compliments really started pouring in as everyone seems to love this dress. Definitely worth the rental cost! Definitely go a size up and maybe have spanx on hand if you have areas you are more self conscious about!

Really great colors; the fit just didn't work on me very well.
I think the print and the back of this dress are awesome; the fit just didn't look great on me. It was a bit short and tight on my thighs, and the sleeves were boxy.

I had so much fun in this dress! I love wearing bright colors and this was so festive and fun for a garden wedding.
I have been in love with this dress for so long and was so excited when I saw it on rent the runway. This was my first rent the runway experience and was very pleased. it was even prettier in person. I am normally a 6 but rented the 8 just in case but the 6 fit perfectly. if you aren't comfortable being bra-less this isn't the dress for you. the low back was super cute and added a little subtle sexiness.

This dress came in the nick of time!
I rented this gorgeous dress for my rehearsal dinner. I had to be in it and ready to go by 4 PM, and UPS rolled up just in time at 3:30! I literally opened the box, put it on, and headed out the door. I'm 5'10", and so it was a tad shorter than what I would normally wear, but it fit comfortably otherwise. I got so many compliments when I wore it - it looked and felt really great. I would recommend this dress and RTR to anyone...it really worked for me!

Stand of Graduation Dress
I wore this dress for graduation parties. I absolutely loved it! The color and fabrics are HEAVENLY. I would highly recommend it. Ran a little large, but nothing that made it look bad.
