Fun AND Flattering
OMG - I can't say enough good things about this dress. It was comfortable, flattering, the perfect length and just plain fun! I received SO many compliments and felt great all night. I also rented the necklace, which was the prefect addition. Great for a wedding, benefit, formal affair or evening party. Would HIGHLY recommend.

Fun cocktail dress for a September wedding
The six fit very true to size, I can generally run between being a size 6 and 8 but for this A-line cocktail dress the six was very comfortable. Fabric moved well, easy to dance in. There is a zipper in the front (under the necklace in the photo) which is fun. Nice, bold color in person.

Cute dress and fits true to size. Good dress for a rehearsal dinner
I'm short (5'2) and the dress hit right around the knee. It was perfect for my event (wedding rehearsal dinner), and got lots of compliments. The fabric was comfortable- I could have worn it all day. Fit was true to size. Loved the color and the print. I would wear it again!

Amazing Dress!
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!

I loved this dress, I didn't want to return it. It was elegant and classy
a few things that i didn't expect : there is a zipper in the front, I thought it was just open, Also the blue is more of a royal blue which is beautiful. I ordered size 10 and 12 and wore the 10 I loved this dress and would where it again.

Fun dress for a Miami 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!

This A-line dress works great on someone with some hips and narrow waist. Definitely a winner!

Beautiful in photos!
This was actually my back-up dress and I loved it! I wore it to a NYE wedding and the subtle shimmer and deep blue top looked lovely in party pictures. I also liked the little zipper in the front! I'm a little on the smaller side bust-wise and it fit perfect. GREAT rental!

I wore this for my university graduation. It was one of the best dresses I've ever worn!
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!

Pretty dress but not quite right for petites
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.

Everyone loved the colors and the fabric is GORGEOUS.
The fit is smaller in the bust for someone with a chest my size, but the waist was a perfect fit! Also, It was knee length on me and I am 5'5. I would have liked it to have been a bit shorter. Overall, a great rent!

LOVED this dress. The colors were so vibrant and beautiful!
This dress was too big, but the size down wasn't available. I was still comfortable, but I think the 10 would have been better. The fabric is heavier than you'd think, which was nice. I would definitely rent this one again!

Definitely a show stopper! Really highlights light complexions!
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!

Very flattering and not too short!
I added the silver belt because I felt like the dress needed something there, not to cinch it in. It was so flattering and there is a zipper to let you chose how much cleavage you show! The material has some give, but not too much. Overall, loved wearing it!

Beautiful, comfortable and versatile!
I'm the kind of girl who likes to get dressed up, then not worry about my outfit for the rest of the night. This dress was perfect! It conformed to all the right areas, yet still had plenty of room for pigging out at the buffet ;) The front zipper was one fun feature that I overlooked when I rented... You can zip it down for a lots of cleavage, or up for none at all! (I left mine half-zipped.) One caution: I did get about an inch of side-boob peeking out on each side, but my black bra blended in just fine. FIVE STARS for my first rental! Wish I didn't have to return it!

Beautiful pattern
I really liked the pattern of the dress. I wore it with simple black pumps and understated jewelry to dress it down a bit. Regarding the sizing, I was 5'4" ~118 lbs when I wore this. I ordered the 2 and the 4, but the 2 was damaged by the prior renter. I ended up wearing the 4, which fit but just a bit loose, but given the pattern it looked fine.

Unique, comfortable, perfect wedding dress!
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.

So many compliments - awesome, super fun dress!
I'm typically a 8, I wore the 10 and I'm a pear shape with a smaller bust and this was super flattering. I thought maybe it would be too poofy at the hips, but it wasn't!

Tons of compliments all night!
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.

Fun party dress
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.

Pretty in photos, but did not work for me.
I rented this in a size 12 so I knew it may not fit (they did not have a 10 for the dates I needed). Color/Print: The print was more checker-board than I was expecting. I loved the blue in the bodice, but did not like the side panels which are checkered. Fit/Size: It was a bit too large, which I expected when I sized up. I think if they had a 10 it would have fit, but I don't think I would have worn it even if it had. The fit had more flare to the skirt than it looks like in the photo, which may have just been my proportions. I am very short waisted and long legged, and it just hit me in all the wrong places. The RTR Stylist was wonderful and was able to ship me another dress that would match the shoes I had bought, and it worked out perfectly.

Pretty Dress - Nice Fit
This is a super cute dress; I didn't end up wearing it in favor of another dress, but I really liked it. My husband said I looked like I was wearing a chess board - probably why I chose the other dress. It's still really cute and stylish and fit's very flattering. Perfect for hourglass shape girls who don't like hip hugging dresses. Dress ran true to size. Very nice material!!

Gorgeous print and comfy fit!
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!

So classy!
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!

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!

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

Perfect for my 35th birthday!
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!

I have a slightly bigger bust so I needed to order a size up because the 6 was a bit snug. Overall, I loved the dress. I got so many compliments on it and the color was gorgeous!

Tight in the bust but I have a big rib cage for my size, but the colors and the pattern were fabulous.
