Perfect for NYE!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress is amazing! Definitely my favorite rental by far. If you are like me and have a small chest and wider hips, this dress will absolutely flatter your waist. The dress is made out of a stretchy material, and I considered going down to the 4 that was delivered but ended up going with the 6 so I could dance on New Year's Eve. The dress does have a front zipper at the bust that does not show in the photo that makes it zip up to be more modest or zip down for more skin. Like other commenters, I agree the blue is more of a deep, royal blue. If I believed in repeats I would rent again. Great dress!

The dress looks amazing. It comes in at the waist then flairs out from there. It is just super flattering to one's figure. The 4 fit me perfectly! Wouldn't change anything about this dress. I paired with silver accessories and black shoes and clutch. Received many compliments!

It was amazing! Fun & flirty and fit my personality perfectly. The silhouette was formal enough to be appropriate for the occasion, while the print made it unique enough to celebrate my special day. The fit was great and the fabric made it comfortable for a long day. LOVED IT!

This dress is so unique. Love the fit and flare. The blue on top is vibrant and really stands out. The fit was good; could have sized down but they didn't have my backup size in stock. I highly recommend this dress for any party or semi formal event.

The dress!

I LOVED this dress! It was so flattering and fit perfectly! I got so many compliments on it and will absolutely rent it again! The only issue I had was that wearing a normal bra, my straps showed a bit in the back. It was nothing a paper clip and a handy friend could fix! For a girl that typically wears all black, I didn't feel this was too flashy. I wore the zipper down.

Great dress to rent since it stands out so much. I loved the fit, the print, and the length. I usually wear a 4, but sometimes wear a 2 and got both those sizes. I was very glad I had the 4 to wear because the waist of the 2 was really tight around my ribs, so something to consider if you have a bigger rib cage like I do. Great dress that I got tons of compliments on. I was sad to send it back!

This dress is amazing. The zero fit like a dream so I didn't even try on the 2. It hit me a little above the knees and accented my waist perfectly. The dress itself is made out of really nice fabric and the fabric feels heavy but isn't making me feel too hot it in. Best dress I've rented so far!

Besides the fact that I had to drive down to the UPS facility to pick up my dress to assure I'll have it in time for my 4-hour drive to the wedding destination for the weekend, this dress was fabulous. The blue was so vibrant and the dress fit so so perfectly. It looks better on than on the hanger, that's for sure. It was super comfortable and I didn't feel uncomfortable after eating a full belly reception meal. Paired it with a bright contrasting colored necklace, which totally completed the outfit...along with my ankle strap heels. I wish I can purchased this dress (but I can't because it's too expensive for me).

I felt AMAZING!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size

I loved this dress. The top was snug, hit right at the waist, and then flared out; perfectly cut for me. The front pleat is a little weird in how it folds, but it looked great on and I forgot about it as soon as I left my house. The "white" parts are not white if you look close up (I think just because of the vigorous dry cleaning), but I can't complain at all about anything because if felt absolutely fabulous in this dress and will definitely rent it again! Definitely a showstopper and I received a ton of compliments.

Great fit, really stood out

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this to a family 50th anniversary party. It looked so amazing. The word "retro" was used a few times. I had a charity fundraiser the night before with a different group, so I got to wear it twice! It has a nice full skirt for dancing, but it didn't spin up too high. I thought the length worked well for this style. I posted a 2nd picture to show the length on me. I wore a strapless bra that had convertible straps, and I had them criss-cross in the back, otherwise they would have shown. One complaint: The size that I wore fit perfectly, but it had obviously been worn more than the backup size, and had been repaired at some point, so the hem didn't lay exactly straight, and the pleats weren't laying right either. The backup size still looked really nice, just way too big.

Perfect for my 35th birthday!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The dress was perfect for my 35th birthday party! The material really shines in person and looks a lot fancier in person than in pics. The only negative is that if you have a decent chest, the top can be very fitted. I ended up opting for the bigger size so my boobs weren't smushed together! Would definitely rent again!

Great colors and comfortable fit, made for a great wedding guest dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I really liked this dress, the color, the little flair, the style, all added up to a look I really liked. I wore the 2 but probably could've worn the 4 for a little more room up top. The 2 was a little snug up top, but it helped keep me together and the 4 was a little too loose, so I opted for the better fit. It was a great length and a perfect style for an outdoor wedding. It was easy to pair with a great pair of black peep-toe heels too, so it was very versatile! Thanks for yet another awesome rental! Can't wait for my next one!

Love the dress, love the pattern. Fit ran a bit small in the midsection, however this is my first Tibi rental, so that may be how they fit. Loved that the neckline could be worn zipped up or zipped down!

At 15 weeks pregnant, I knew I could probably get away with an empire waist, A-line to "hide" my bump a bit since it hasn't been made "Facebook official" lol! This dress was perfect. I got plenty compliments and I loved the fit. I only wish it had pockets but the front neckline zipper adds a touch of fun!

Overall fit: True to Size

I usually wear a size 6, but since I had 10 pounds or so left of my post baby weight, I rented an 8 and it fit great. I would say this fits true to size given my situation. The 6 fit as well, it was just not as comfortable. My only complaint would be the arm pits were a bit low and you could see my bra straps through the sides.... I ended up tying them together in the back and it worked out fine. The color is beautiful and the pattern is unique. Received lots of compliments!

Fun party dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Eye-catching pattern and high quality fabric. I was able to wear "normal" underwear with this dress because the fabric is thick enough that lumps and lines don't show. Hard to tell in the pictures, but the skirt is very full and fun to dance in. I had to go up to size 6 (normally I wear a 4) because the waist has zero stretch, and I'm thicker around the middle than most women who are my size. Even the 6 was a little tight around the midsection when sitting down, but not too bad. This dress is hard to zip up by yourself.

I rented this dress for a wedding and got tons of compliments! The cut is very modest and classy, but the print kept it fun. Comfortable to dance in and definitely felt special. Four stars just because I wasn't a huge fan of how far the armholes came in -- felt like I was battling armpit bulge all night! Still a great dress though.

I rented this for a very special wedding that my husband was standing up in. The 10 fit perfectly! The style of the dress would be flattering on anyone and it is extremely comfortable. I was able to dance and drink all night, even went to the bars afterwards to continue dancing! I received so many compliments and the bride kept telling me how much she loved the dress. You will NOT be disappointed. Good for summer or fall, just the perfect little cocktail dress, one of my favorite rentals.

Definitely a show stopper! Really highlights light complexions!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered this dress as a back-up style for an upcoming wedding after my safety size was booked up. I run between a size 8 and 10 (depending on the fit), and since my original style was an 8, I ordered the 10 just to be safe. The dress arrived and the pattern was gorgeous, although it was a little big. I could of sized down to the 8 for more tailored fit. I ended up wearing this dress to the rehearsal dinner and received tons of compliments! I ended up pairing it with a black belt to keep it fitted around the waist. I was able to wear a normal bra with it (but just barely); I imagine that issue would be fixed if I'd ordered the smaller size, as the arm holes were just too large. I absolutely loved the dress though and I would definitely consider renting the style again in a smaller size. Definitely a show stopper!

Pretty dress but not quite right for petites

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
I rented this dress for an event that I had while on vacation in Mexico. I'm generally a size 4 and found this to fit true to size. It was fitted well in the bust for me and the cute lil peep zipper at the neckline allowed the dress to be a little more flirty. For me the drawback was the length. I found the skirt to be overwhelming on my 5'1" frame. Ended up being a little too much fabric. For that reason alone I wouldn't rent the dress again. I think it would flatter a large busted, taller frame, very well.

It fit me like a glove! My dress size ranges from 2-6 depending on designer so i was pleased that this size 4 fit perfectly! My jean size 3/5, shirt size Small. I am on the shorter side so the hem hit just above my knee instead of mid thigh like the model - no big deal for a winter event. I love that the hidden zipper in the front allows for the choice of modest cleavage or none at all. I got so many complements and the colors matched my university's colors. I was so sad to return it!

Size worn: 10
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is great quality and photographs really well. I got compliments the whole night. I typically wear an 8, and RTR only had a 10, so it was a little long for my 5'3" frame. To fix this, I safety pinned the shoulders to pull it up a bit. Other than that, it was a really fun dress for a Miami wedding!

I wore this dress for a formal Oscar themed party. It was beautiful and a definite attention grabber, I received many compliments! I wore a 4 (2 wasn't available to ship as second size), it fit well overall but was a bit loose in the waistline. 2 would've been perfect. This was my first experience using rent the runway and this dress did NOT disappoint! I'll definitely be back!
