I was told by my guy friends that I was best-dressed at the tailgate! That has to mean something right?!
I was surprised at how short the dress was. I am 5'8 and it was hard for me to even remotely bend down in it! Also, the material is very thick, which I was not expecting. But, I actually loved it besides that! It's very classy and adorable.

Loved the yellow color! It was very summery and cute for a daytime luncheon. Not as short on the model as in person.

Flatting fit for a summer affair
Size this for your rib cage. For example, I wore a 0 in my other dress and a 4 in this. The rib cage is tight and the rest of the dress is a nice fit and forgiving.

Thick material, runs small!
I rented this for my graduate school graduation. I was unable to wear because it was too small around the waist and I didn't get a back-up size! It is very thick and heavy.

Everyone loved it and could not believe where I got it from!
It was a great dress! I did not realize how thick the material was or the texture, but that just made it even better. I got a 4 and 6, the 6 was too big and the 4 was a little too snug, but I wore the 4 because I liked the way it laid at my waist better! I definitely wish I owned this dress.

Great dress, perfect fit, cool material!
I ordered this dress for a homecoming tailgate a few weeks ago. Since it was a bit chilly, I paired it with a black sweater (school colors are black and gold) and a pair of cowboy boots. The dress fit perfectly - I ordered both the 0 and 2 but ended up going with my usual size due to fit. I found that the dress was a little short as I couldn't really bend down at all. The fabric was different and added an interesting element to the dress. It was super comfortable and I wouldn't hesitate to order it again for warmer weather!

Loved it, sort of.
Loved the dress, however, it was a little too long on me. I ended up pairing a big brown belt with it right at the waist line, folding the dress over under the belt to make it shorter. The dress actually looked MUCH better with a belt--would recommended having one handy if you're renting this. Ordered both an 8 and a 6 (I usually wear a 6), but had to wear the 8 because my boobs didn't fit into the 6. Great for girls with big bust sizes--you can wear a normal bra with it. Would definitely rent if you have a belt to pair with it!

I had plenty of people ask to borrow the dress and I had to reveal this website as my big secret!
I wore this to my boyfriend's fraternity formal and it was a great pick! The color of the dress is flattering even on pale people and is a different color than from what you would normally see people wearing. The fabric is thick and you are able to wear a normal bra with the dress. The patterning on the dress isn't too overwhelming and I was able to wear a chunky necklace with it without seeming too much. Nude shoes are a great choice to pair it with!

I LOVED this dress and got tons of compliments. It was hard to return it! However, it was very short and that made it difficult to sit. It was also a little tight around the neck but it was fine. Highly recommend!

Really cute!
Dress is a very pretty yellow color and the fabric is gorgeous! The size 4 I received was stained and rtr sent me out another one in time for my party free of charge!! It is a little on the short side for my age but I thought it was appropriate for a warm summer night.

With great heels it works for night, or cute flats for day!
Wore this dress to a friends birthday party, so cute for summer. Runs a little small in chest area. If you're above an A cup, order one sizes up as backup.

Super Cute
This dress was adorable, I ended up going with a different dress because: the fabric is a little shear - if you have curves or abdominal muscles, I wouldn't say it is the most flattering - as it hugs right under your bust. Super cute, I would order and wear again but in an 8. Absolutely gorgeous material.

Just being able to wear a great dress without having to pay the designer price tag was a great experience.
I wore this dress to a bridal shower in NYC. I didn't think I would love it as much as I did but once I tried it on, I loved it. I also got many compliments :). I ordered this dress in both a 0 and a 2 and I couldn't wear the 0 because it was too tight in the chest area. So if you are larger than a B, you'll probably need the next size up.

Perfect for afternoon event
Great texture, which can't be seen as well in photographs. The material is pretty thick, so I wouldn't wear it to an outdoor hot/humid summer event. Perfect for a girl with wider hips- has a really nice flair. The conservative top is balanced nicely with the shorter skirt & the barer back. Material stretched as the day wore on. I felt there was a major difference between the 2 and 4- If you are smaller in the shoulders and chest and are in between the 2 sizes- go with the 2!!! :)

Major Disappointment!
I was very excited to try this dress, unfortunately it turned out to be a major disappointment! The pattern on it is pretty but its barely noticeable and the color is very dull. In the picture it looks very short but it actually only hits mid thigh, not too high.

There was a mix up unfortunately and had about 5 hours to pick out a new dress from RTR. Their stylist were on the phone with me helping me out (since I am style-challenged) and helped SO MUCH!
I put this dress on and fits like a GLOVE to my body! It was a daytime wedding and I had so many people coming up to me with compliments! It will be a bit snug right under the bust but I have never put on such a beautiful dress and had it feel so comfortable. HIGHLY recommend- also get the Phoenix Necklace to go with it- it looked fabulous together!

Great dress for the summer. Simple, easy and easy to move in.
Great color 'yellow' and can wear with accessories or simple. I wore it to a wedding rehearsal dinner and party and wore it with flats. I wore it in Nashville in July and was not hot in it at all. The bottom was a little tight and in the armpit, but other than that it was great!!!

Perfect for a bridal shower in May.
I rented a 6 and 8. I am very short and this dress was a perfect length. It has lining inside so no need for a slip, comfortable. The 6 was a little snug around the bust. Also saffire blue earrings were a prefect compliment. This is the third rental for me, and am so happy I do not have to spend hours searching stores for a dress that I might never wear again. Thanks to rent the runway!

an 8 wasn't too long? I'm shorter than you by an inch and was curious. Where did it hit in comparison to your knees? Thanks!!

It hit between the top of my knee and middle of my thigh. I am 4ft. 10 inches.

Fun dress!
The material on this Tibi dress was too thick for the event I was attending. It was very pretty, but didn't fall quite right on my body, it made me look larger than I am. Perhaps it looks better on someone with a smaller frame.

Beautiful, high quality dress!
This dress is absolutely gorgeous! You can easily tell that the material is of good quality. This dress hugs you In all the right places and remains classy! The length was perfect for me. The only reason why I did not give it 5stars is because the neckline digs into your skin when sitting down. That was quite uncomfortable. But when standing it was very comfortable.

Not for me
I didn't love this dress. I ordered one size up as a backup, and even that was tight across the bust. The color yellow is not the same as in the photos, I think it is a little lighter and more pale, which didn't sit well against my fair complexion and blonde hair. Also, the paneling on the dress puts a giant cross on it, which you can't really see in the photos and that I really didn't like. I didn't wear this dress.

This dress fits amazing! I would think this dress would be great for almost any body shape, but maybe not pear shaped. Great for both athletic and skinny body types!

Love the fit of this dress. Definitely a little snug in the top area, but really flatters the waist. Fabric was comfortable, color was pretty, overall GREAT dress.

Love RTR... Didn't care for this dress
I love RTR and have used them numerous times. I couldn't wear this dress. In person it just fit weird. Possibly may be my body type fault but I have a boney collar bone and the collar of the dress had such little give that it rubbed my skin raw. So I couldn't wear it. It's a cute dress just has zero give to the material.

Perfect ! Day time baby shower hit
Large Breasted girls BEWARE! Im a 34DD I wear a 2/ 4 in express jeans and small tops. I ordered the 6 and 8 . I wore the 8 which was roomy elsewhere but still tight up top without a bra. Material is thick and well made so no show thru. Over all i loved this dress it was different! The only con id say is that it wrinkles easy.

Great dress for engagement photo shoot!
I liked this dress a lot but was not thrilled by the way it fit. There are seams that make a "t" shape down the front of the dress and that seemed to make it bunch in the wrong way for me. Overall, I loved the material and color... it looked lovely in my engagement pictures!
