Beautiful color and textured pattern- didn't end up wearing.
This ran a little big in the chest for me. I️ ordered for a wedding but ended up wearing another dress that was more color appropriate for a cold fall wedding.

Excellent dress!
Fit was true to size. Flattering style, gorgeous fabric. Yellow color works well for brunettes and those with a little olive in their skin tone. Not too short, even for someone quite tall, like myself.

Bright yellow and summery
Very pretty dress WITH POCKETS. The skirt was nice and wide so it was comfortable to wear all day! The patterns on the dress are flowers.

Comfortable and very pretty
It's a comfortable dress that could be worn from desk to dinner ,the fabric tends to pile as the dress is textured so avoid wearing too many accessories as they get caught up in the dress infact one doesn't need to wear any accessories as the dress is a stunner .will definitely rent again

Love this dress and it fits like a dream.
I didn't wear this dress to the wedding because my backup dress was a better style choice, but if I have an excuse I will rent this one again! It's beautiful!!

Wedding brunch
I got this dress for an event (Sunday brunch following a Saturday evening wedding) but did it end up wearing it. I'm second trimester pregnant and the dress fit well, but was a little snug in the waist line (it felt like it did not set comfortably on my bump). I would have worn it anyway but the hem was torn and hung. I spent money to have it pressed and even took it to a RTR store but they couldn't fix it in time and didn't have another in my size. Loved the pockets. The color was not pure yellow- it was a bit on the green side. But a bright, fun color for a weekend wedding event. I'd rent if again.

Gorgeous summery dress!
I ordered this at the last minute for a Friday evening wedding at a gorgeous outdoor garden. It's such a lovely dress! The 12 fits so well that I wore that instead of the 14 I'd planned on. I could even wear a regular bra with this and it has POCKETS!!! It's so lovely and comfortable!

I got several compliments on this dress, including, "You look like Belle!"
It's good to remember that when wearing designer dresses, the sizing is often more generous than department stores. I rented a 10, and at the suggestion of the website to order the alternate size one size up, I also got a 12. I really actually needed an 8. With some safety pins at the top of the dress and a belt around the waist, I made the dress work. It has pockets, so well worth the effort!

Gorgeous, feel like a million dollars dress!
After a stylist sizing snafu with my original dress, the customer service team came to the rescue with this stunner. The dress fit perfectly & the vibrant colors and pattern meant all I needed were earrings. I do recommend a strapless bra, though, as a regular bra would have shown on the sides & top. Even thought there is a snap to put a bra strap, it will not accommodate a wider strap. Could not have been more pleased with my first RTR experience!

Conservative dress that is still fun!
I'm 5'4", 119lbs, 32A and wore the 0. Sometimes I wear a 2 if it's tight through the butt and hips, but this was good in the 0. The pockets were great, dress is bright and cheerful but not crazy -I was going was going for ladylike at a traditional venue. Would rent again for a similar event. Wore with nude heels, white pearl earrings and bracelet.

Very bright and cherry. A little scratchy under the arms.
I wore with a brown belt and brown boots to work to tone it down. A little too formal for work.

Sunshine Yellow Dress with Pockets!
Overall I really liked this dress. The fit is very true to size. I needed a dress last minute so ran into the Chicago store and found this dress. The color is beautiful and vibrant as is the detail on the dress. I wore a 6 because that is all they had in the store, and it fit well enough. It was definitely big on me, I would have easily fit into a 4. The pockets are great and between the amount of material in the skirt and the pleats you can't tell if you have things in your pockets.

Great dress; fabric makes it more formal than I thought
This dress was beautiful; the fit is great, and the color is really fun. Works with a regular bra, and is a good length- not too short. I had rented the dress for a casual daytime event, though, and felt the fabric made it too dressy. It would be perfect for a wedding or other more formal event!

So different- love the pattern!!!
So I tried this on at Rent the Runway in Chicago and I LOVED it! .......so much that I had to rent it! I never wear yellow, since I'm usually pretty pale and it washes my skin tone out, but I loved the color on this dress! The pattern is so cute too, and this dress is nice and snug without being too restricting!

Great way to brighten your day
Loved this dress. The bright yellow color just made me feel happy . Plus the textured detail added a high quality feel to the dress. I added a little navy sweater that dressed it down a little bit and made it perfect for a day in the office.

STYLIST REVIEW!
Beautiful dress. The color pops and the jacquard is lovely. This dress also has pockets so that's a plus. Dress do run small. Would recommend sizing up for for first size and up further for your backup. This dress has NO stretch.

Great color, classy look
I got a bunch of complements on this dress today! The color is bold and the style is classic. It was a little long for me, but it ended up looking good with heels. I'd recommend wearing a strapless bra...I kept having to push my bra straps in throughout the day

At this wedding, I had the only yellow dress in a sea of black and navy dresses!
I had read previous reviews and knew this dress ran large so I ordered a 4 and a 6. I wore the 4. I added a belt but easily could have worn it without. I especially liked the "embroidered" fabric, daffodil yellow color and 2 pockets. It was a bit snug in the bust area. I accessorized with an amber necklace and bracelet and gold hoop earrings. I wore gold strappy sandals and my "pop" of color was a floral pillbox purse. I received compliments throughout the evening and was very comfortable dancing. This dress allows for a standard bra (had the bra strap snap closure) and no slip is necessary. The size 6 was a little big on the top half size-wise. Also there was some threading near the neckline that looked like it had been pulled.

Loved this classic cut and bright color
Perfect for day time wedding and nighttime reception. Comfortable. Classic. And. #Pockets. Shoulder straps have little tabs to keep bra straps in place. I ended up wearing the smaller back up size 6. I think I could've worn a 4 ? But the 6 was great ! I received many compliments -I think it was the dress plus the RTR / kate space necklace duo !

Perfect spring work dress
I wore this dress for a work event, and the cut was so flattering. The yellow stands out in a sea of gray and black suits, but the cut is classic and formal. This dress has pockets!!! One issue I had was that jewelry and other things kept getting caught on the dress. I could see over time that the fabric would lose its quality. Great dress though, and I may buy it!

Ordered this for work and synagogue but did not get to wear. Gorgeous color and material though.
Note that the sizes in this are not "W" -- i.e., I was expecting a "16W" but got a "16". The fit is much smaller than on regular plus-size dresses.

I received several compliments. The dress is very comfortable - easy to dance in!
This dress is very comfortable and has pockets - my favorite! I love that the dress is structured and flattering - it covers up problem areas with no need for spanx. It was thinner and lighter than I expected, for the better. It is lined, so it lays well. I am always overly cautious about sizing because I will not wear a tight dress and I have thick hips and thighs. I am now between a 12 and a 14 however, I opted to get a 16 as my back up size. I wore the 14, but it was a little big in the bust (a normal thing for me) and was a little long in the torso (also pretty normal for me), but not overly big. I wish I had the 12 to compare. The extra room made it comfortable and easy to move around in, I danced (and ate) all night! I am 5'3" and I would have loved for this dress to have been an inch or so shorter. It wasn't unflattering, I just prefer dresses to hit at the top or middle of my knee, this was just at the bottom of my knee. A small issue overall. The material of the dress seems like one that won't bounce back from a lot of dry cleaning/washing. Unlike other dresses I've rented, I felt like this one looked like it had been worn before. I will keep this in mind for future rentals.

Bright and fun!
Carmen Marc Valvo designs a great dress for professional settings. The bright yellow is an awesome, vivid color but the fabric looks shinier on camera. The fabric texture gives the dress interesting dimension. The dress fits true to size but be careful if you're big chested b/c it's slightly tight in the chest and shoulders.

The dress is very pretty. The color is bright and summery and the pattern in the fabric adds dimension, but it runs large. I recommend sizing down for a backup size.

Fabulous color !!
I chose another rental to wear to the wedding but the color of this one is just fabulous. The fabric is very nice and thick (but not overly) just enough to not require spanx. It also has pockets which are a nice feature. I didn't wear it because I needed to size down. I will rent the right size for another event in the future.

Lovely dress! very wide at the hips
I loved the dress, very cute, shiny fabric, but not overdone. However, the top fitted ok but even considering the skirt is made to bluff out, it was really oversized for me in spite of having somewhat wide hips.
