It fit wonderfully and was such a cute, structured dress. Very comfortable, soft, and classy.
Fit well throughout the waist and gives you more room at the hips (does not hug hips, so perfect for small waists with larger hips that you may or may not want to hide). On the shorter side, but not too short!

Perfect Fit!
I bought this to wear to the races in Saratoga. The dress is lighter than the picture, but still yellow, more like butter yellow. I am a pear/hourglass shape, as in huge hips and a tiny waist and it still looked great and modest on me. You can wear a regular bra with this, too!

pretty but didn't wear....
I rented this for my twin sisters outdoor summer wedding. Both the 4 and 6 ran small and I couldn't wear either. Unfortunately had to find something else to wear which was very disappointing

Super cute
First RTR experience and wasn't so good. Ordered the dress in the 6 because all the reviews had said it ran small, not in my case the dress did fit,but a 4 would have been so much better . Dress hit right at my knee and made me feel as if I were going to church. Hope next order will be a hit.

Size up!
This dress is pretty, but just an ill fit for my body. I don't think sizing up to a 4 would have helped. It was very, very tight in the bust, and overall just an unflattering fit on me.

Perfect for my late spring bridal shower! The necklace pulled it together.
The dress was a good length for my height. Its very thick material, so if if going to be hot I don't suggest it.

I thought the Dress was too casual for a Wedding. The fabric is comfortable and form-fitting, great for petites.

The wedding was on the water and the sunset was beautiful.
First time renting on RTR and this was the perfect dress. It was definitely tight in the bust area for a size 2, but the size 4 was too loose around my waist. I am typically a size 4 or 6, but I decided on the 2 by looking at how it fit on girls my height and weight. It was a perfect length and I loved that the back had wide straps. The necklace I wore was also something I rented on RTR and it was pink/teal/and gold. I can't wait for another wedding/sorority event to rent another dress!

Perfect dressy casual summer dress, wore to my graduate school graduation.
A tad tight in the rib cage, fortunate for me I am not a busty woman. The skirt flares out a tiny bit (more A-line than a sheath -- good if you are a little hippy). Fabric a little thicker than other sun dress type of dress, gives it a nice weight so it doesn't look cheap. Good length for a petite woman, comes to about mid-thigh.

Great!
Fits pretty true to size. It had a great fit up top, but a bit tight in the rib cage. Overall, a beautiful dress and I would absolutely recommend it!

I rented this dress for engagement pictures and loved it, perfectly suited the occasion!
It fit pretty well on the upper half. The lower half clung to my hips without being outrageously clingy. Fabric is very thick. Back is a little low, so I wore a backless bra and it was fine. I definitely recommend this dress.

Cute Dress!
I wore this dress for my engagement photos as the formal outfit. The dress could be used for a more casual event like a bridal shower, or brunch as well. The yellow color was really pretty. I would rent this again.

Definitely runs a size small so I would order up a size. The 12 was even a bit tight in the rib cage area but tolerable. Overall a good rental!

Great color but very short and uncomfortable.
The color was great and vibrant. However, the neckline was incredibly high and rubbed my neck and collar bone in an uncomfortable way. I'm 5'4'' and the dress was very short on me. It was also very tight at the arms and was too snug to wear. I could have gone a size up but then I doubt it would have fit correctly in the waist.

Cute but odd fit
I ordered this dress to wear for my birthday dinner at a nice restaurant. I ignored the reviews about the dress being too short since I am 5'4" -- but, yes, it was definitely too short and would show everything if I bent over. I am in my 30s and a mother of two so maybe it would be more appropriate on someone younger that can pull off the length. I just felt inappropriate in it. The zero was a little tight but wearable and the two was too big. I decided not to wear the dress. It was a pretty color!

Beautiful color just not a good fit
I rented this dress for a birthday brunch in Miami. The color of the dress was lovely but that's about all I loved about it. I usually wear a size 2 and if the material is stretchy I often opt for the size 0. I could have used a size 4 at LEAST in this. There is no stretch to the material so if you're smaller on the bottom with a larger chest (I'm a 32 c) you might be in trouble. I could barely breath once my husband zipped this puppy up!! The bottom fit fine but it is VERY short (I'm 5'5) which was fine for me (it's Miami after all) but might make someone uncomfortable who is wearing it to a wedding or work function. I wore this with the Kate Spade Field Day Statement necklace I rented as well.

Odd fit
As a slightly pear-shaped individual, it is rare that I find a dress that is too tight on top and oddly baggy on bottom; this dress fit that description, unfortunately. It was oddly tight on the collarbone, which was really uncomfortable.

Loved the gentle yellow color
Size 2 wasn't available and the zero was a little snug particularly in the chest. Had it been a size larger it would have been a perfect length too. This one was a bit short. I loved it anyway. Really flattering, casual, fun.

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!

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.

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 for summer. I even dressed it down with cowboy boots.
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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!
michelleMay 29, 2013
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!!
kellyMay 31, 2013
It hit between the top of my knee and middle of my thigh. I am 4ft. 10 inches.
