Best dress!

This dress was exceptional. Slimming, comfortable, well-tailored, beautifully designed. I will definitely be looking for this designer on my future RTR rentals.

My favorite dress in the history of ever!

My sister had one rule for her bridesmaids' dresses: navy dress of your choice. I have unlimited membership, so ordered several navy dresses until I found This One. It arrived brand new; tags still attached. You step into it and pull it up (another tag, which of course I removed, explained this) so not a lot of effort to put everything in place. I wore spanks, and the dress fit like a glove. The shoulders are pretty exposed so I did wear a strapless bra, too. It was classy and sexy all at once. I was tempted to buy the dress but it's nice knowing I can just rent it again if I want to. So many compliments, and the bride was pleased, because to be honest, when I told her I was renting a dress, she was a little freaked out:) Loved loved loved.

Very flattering dress, will rent again (if not buy!)

I usually wear a 6, ordered a 42 and it was too small. The 44 fit like a glove. The material is comfortable but structured, just stretchy enough to be comfortable without looking comfortable. Can't wear a regular bra with this dress. I opted for no bra, but leave time to make a good decision for your personal situation. RTR was amazing, they overnighted me the right size. Outstanding customer service!

Felt like a million bucks

The model in the photo doesn't have the bosom to do this dress justice. Looks HAWT (and elegantly modern) on an hourglass figure. Hides flaws, emphasizes assets--most women could probably get away with this without a shaper thanks to the thick, stretchy material. The boatneck and peekaboo add the right touch of classy sex appeal. It is a bit difficult to get on initially--no zippers--but is comfortable once you get it in place. You would have to put it on before attempting an elaborate hairstyle--no way you could get it on over an updo. I could get my actual size on (US 10/Italy 44), but sizing up (46) was more flattering.

Fantastic dress!

I rented this for a wedding and just adored it. The material is to die for, stretchy but holds you in and fits like a glove. Seriously, it was amazing. I have an hourglass figure and it really accentuates the waist while making the most of the rest of your curves. The color is lovely too!

Sexy & classy

Structured details but stretchy and extremely fitted. The fabric is thick and hugs you just like spanx. I'm a size 10 and 36/38 C; I didn't wear any undergarments except a thong, and I felt totally comfortable. You'll look super classy and understated while still sexy and daring. I wore this with burgundy suede ankle-strap heels, a trapezoid purse, and a leather artisan cuff. I felt awesome and received compliments all day and night. This is my second chiara boni rental, and I think I'm falling in love. Both dresses have been perfect for curvy, tall women with a little "junk in the trunk." I don't think this would look as good on a short-waisted or straight-and-narrow type.

Best dress I have ever worn.

I have never had more compliments on the dress then this one. It fits like a glove, material is so stretchy and tight at the same time, it is so comfortable as well. I usually wear 6, but had to go with 8

When your husband says "WOW" when you walk out in this dress!

Incredibly comfortable. Was given a ton of compliments all night. One caution is that given the scuba like material/fit, it slides up while seated and requires you to adjust the dress upon standing.

Gorgeous, elegant, dressy business appropriate

Amazing beautifully made dress, fabric is heavy yet stretchy so fits forgivingly but not showing every bump! Off shoulders so must use strapless bra, most frequently fitting size is a 10 or 10P, I did not even try on the backup 48 because the 46 was perfect. Family urging me to buy this elegant Italian design. I was hosting a cocktail reception at my home which included many colleagues so needed to keep it appropriate for a senior executive yet dressy and this was perfect

My favorite dress of all time

This dress is amazing. At first I was confused because there's no zipper but the material is stretchy so it's easy to get on and it's absolutely the most comfortable, flattering, perfect dress I've ever worn. The fabric is so comfortable I felt like I was wearing pajamas, but the cut and fit of the dress is stunning.

On Trend! Structured, true to size & very flattering.

The material is very flattering and very forgiving. It's true to size so if you prefer a more loose fit, wear the next size up. I wore spanks but it was only a slip and I didn't require a push-up bra, for someone with a full bust, this is very important. It held up everything in it's place and was very flattering. I'm 5'3 with a 36DD bust.

Love it...this dress is so elegant yet super comfortable!

This dress is called the Kate shift and I definitely felt as elegant as a Duchess. The dress has no zippers so you have to pull it on over your head but the material doesn't wrinkle and the thick fabric is flattering for all body types. I got so many complements and will be on the lookout for this dress to buy on sale.

Loved this dress!!

Loved this dress! Unbelievable comfortable and looks great on. Hides a myriad of sins and accentuates the good! Great dress for the fundraising gala I wore this to. I had complete strangers coming up to me complimenting the dress. I will definitely be renting this dress again and would even consider purchasing. I could have gotten away with one size smaller but it wasn't available. Took a gamble on ordering one size and because of the fabric type it works even if it is one size too big or too small.

Pretty color, fell a little funny on me

Dress color was lovely and the material is fabulous. But for some reason, the hips just fell funny on me and it wasn't flattering. Maybe I got the wrong size, who knows!

Great dress!

I was worried about the fabric, but I loved this dress. It was comfortable and fit perfectly. I would have worn the 44 because it wasn't quite as snug but then the shoulders and cut out were too big. I wore spanx under it and a strapless bra. Great color, very form fitting so lines will be visible.

I wore this dress to a formal wedding. I could wear the 8 (44) or 10 (46), but chose the larger. It was super comfortable and hugged in all the right spots. Got a ton of compliments. I highly recommend this dress

Awesome dress

I loved this dress. Incredibly flattering, and I got a lot of compliments. Two issues. First, I had to keep moving my bra straps down on my shoulders because of the way the dress is cut. Second, it is really hard to get on and off with no zippers. Once it's on, however, it is an amazing dress!

Gorgeos Dress! Flattering, stretchy.

Fabulous fabric and design. Definitely need a strapless bra or you can go without depending on your figure. It hugs you, but is thick enough to be supportive rather than revealing.

Love.

What a fabulous dress. I wore this for a wedding and felt comfortable despite the fact that I hate my body right now. The material is forgiving and stayed crisp all night (it's like a thick swimsuit). The accents at the chest and skirt are perfect and understated and could be worn to a fancy professional event as well. Extremely satisfied.

You'll feel like a million bucks in this dress!

I wore this for a holiday party. The fabric is like a lighter version of wet suit fabric. The navy looks so sophisticated. I have fairly bony shoulders and felt like I didn't fill out the top enough, especially to show the cool cutout detail in the front. This dress would be killer on someone with a larger bust.

Classy and quality

I rented this for a holiday party and this dress was amazing. The quality of the fabric was superb and the way it fit made me feel like a million bucks. I even got compliments from strangers, which was really nice as I haven't really lost my baby weight (kids are 3 and 1), but in this dress it didn't matter as it was so flattering. Please note that I did wear spandex. Also, this is my very first Rent the Runway dress and it definitely will not be my last.

Felt wonderful in this dress!

This dress is so customizable - with looking at all the different shapes and sizes of the reviews (and everyone looking equally as gorgeous!) I was excited to wear this for NYE! This was my first time using RTR and I ordered this dress late so only had the one size option and not a second size, so I was nervous. The dress is a heavy fabric which is really stretchy....I wore shapewear underneath and that gave me and extra boost, but I can see how others would be comfortable without - it's definitely not necessary. The dress is sophisticated and sexy and you'll definitely have at least one person telling you just that - if not more!! Loved this and felt wonderful in it!!

Beautiful color. Elegant and comfortable. Perfect for a winter wedding. Got many comliments.

This dress is very fitted but flattering because of the beautiful fabric. Very well made. I ordered the 42 and the 40 as the extra size.. I could have worn either due to the stretch of the fabric but chose the 42 because the sleeves were a little tight in the 40. I'm 5'2" and was worried about the length but it hit right below the knee, which looked great with high heels. I loved the fit and look of this dress and would definitely rent it again.

This was a very comfortable and elegant dress!

I wore this dress for only 3 or 4 hours, and unfortunately, didn't get a picture. I needed something for a holiday party and I didn't want something too flashy or over the top. I got the 46 and 48 sizes. The night of the party, I threw on my strapless bra and a pair of hose and spanx shorts. The first dress I tried was the 48. All good and good enough because I didn't have time to try the other. And all good for all night. Aside from the hassle of wearing a strapless, this is a great, great dress. It's classy, it's stretchy and the material is thin but not too thin. Just a couple notes, I usually wear between a 10 and 12 and I felt the 48 was a bit larger in the waist that what I would have thought necessary. (I'm about a 33.5" waist.) I also felt that if I had worn this all night long, that it might have grown a bit, but I can't verify that. It's not really a "neoprene" fabric either. It's thinner, and stretchy, and won't cover something like cellulite. However, it's the perfect color and an almost matte material that won't emphasize flaws either. My husband loved it, and told me to find other dresses under this designer.

LOVED THIS DRESS!!! It fits perfectly and makes you feel fabulous!! My husband begged me to buy it!

This dress fit perfectly! Even after two babies, this dress hides the negative and accentuates the positive. My husband begged me to find this dress and purchase it. He has another upcoming event and asked if I could wear it again. Highly recommend this dress and RTR!
