Beautiful and Slimming Dress
I love love love the fit of this dress! It's so flattering and looks gorgeous and expensive. It looks classic yet playful. Probably one of my fav dresses from Rent the runway unlimited.

Plunging neckline - not a good option if you are short waisted!
Absolutely gorgeous dress! But on my petite 5'3" frame, the waistline of this dress hit far far below my natural waist. The dress fit well, and may run a tad large as Marchesa tends to do. Stunning embroidery on the bodice, lovely color. But the neckline was far too low cut to be appropriate! I needed the straps shortened at least 4 inches.

Compliments all night
This dress is stunning. It has a flattering cut, beautiful embroidery, big pockets (!), and is fabulously comfortable. I wore it for a summer wedding in NYC, and received compliments all night. Only minor issue is that it's a little big in the shoulders, but nothing very noticeable. I was so sad to return this beauty, and would absolutely recommend to anyone. Very flattering on an hourglass or pear-shaped figure.

Shoulder straps large
The dress is beautifully made. The detail is amazing. It is tight in the bodice, but was large in the shoulders. I made it work but I would be cautious of this in the future.

Stylist Review
Perfect style for your next formal event! Running true to size we recommend sizing up for backup as it is fitted throughout the midsection. There is no stretch to the fabric however there is comfortable room at the bust for so this would work for any cup size. The fit and flare style makes this perfect for any body type, especially for those with a wider hip. At about 5'4/5'5 this style hit right at the knee. Due to the elaborate detailing on the top portion of the dress I would pair with minimal accessories!

Expensive Looking, Great Detail
I wore this out for my husband's birthday dinner and got tons of compliments all night from strangers at the restaurant! I loved the floral detail- looked extremely expensive! It does have a long torso so if you have a short torso this may not look good.

This dress fits well and feels very special. It is bright and the embroidery made it unique.
This dress doesn't require a lot of jewelry because of the bodice detail!

Beautiful dress but a little too big.
Beautiful dress but the bust area is way too big. Also, be ready to show some major cleavage because the neckline is really low. Otherwise a great dress.

I loved this dress and have considered buying it. One of my favorite dresses ever!
The color of this dress is gorgeous. It's a rich fuchsia and the fabric is dreamy. I wore my normal size for dresses and the fit was perfect. The flower embroidery is so special and unique and the neckline is feminine without going overboard. Highly recommend this stunner!

Perfect for a summer wedding!
I would describe the dress as true to size, although the bodice was pretty fitted. If you are in between sizes, I would size up. The quality of the embroidery was impeccable. The dress was more low-cut than I realized, so keep that in mind if the event is more conservative. As far as length goes, I would recommend the dress for someone tall like me. I'm 5'8" and it hit perfectly but might be too long on someone shorter.

Stand-out pink cocktail dress with gorgeous embroidery
I wore this to a wedding upstate and was really happy with it. People were coming up to me all night and telling me how pretty it was. The flower embroidery is very detailed and beautiful. I was able to wear a regular bra with this dress and has no issues. AND it has pockets, which is just the best thing ever.

Loved this dress!
I wore this to a couples bridal shower and felt great in this dress. It was a little longer than I would have liked but I wore 3"-31/2""heels that helped. And since I'm kind of petite, the torso was a little long which made the shoulders ride up if I wasn't careful. If I had a hand in a pocket (which I loved about the dress )it kept it in place. I received many compliments.

Beautiful Dress
I loved this dress! I rented this for a wedding in Colorado. I received tons of compliments and would rent it again. The colors are bright and vibrant and the embroidery and gorgeous. It was comfortable and had lots of room in the bust for fuller figured girls. It was also easy to match and stood out in a crowd. Also, the dress has pockets!

So many compliments!
I wore this for my rehearsal dinner before my wedding a few weeks ago. It fit so well and was extremely comfortable. I wish that I would have gotten more pictures in it! I would definitely rent it again, because everyone loved it. Any dress where you can wear a regular bra is a plus.

Stunning and comfortable. Pockets!
Gorgeous dress with the bonus of being comfortable and easy to wear. The embroidery and fabric are both incredibly lush. I received many compliments and was delighted with my choice. The 6 was a snug fit so I went with the 8 so, real talk, I could eat and drink freely at the wedding. Based on other reviews, I was worried the 8 would be too big in the shoulders since I have narrow shoulders, but it was fine. If I owned the dress, I'd have them taken up a smidge; for a rental, it was perfectly fine. I styled with the Nicole Miller Star Light Star Bright necklace from here, a gold clutch, and gold pumps. Pros: You can wear a regular bra You don't need to wear Spanx Fully lined Rich color Pockets! Cons: The fabric wrinkles really easy - but it's also forgiving. The size 8 fell off the hangar in transit and it was a bit of a hassle to steam it, but it fell back into place pretty easily.

Lovely wedding in Napa Valley
Dress fit perfectly. The embroidery on the top makes it a heavier dress, so not great for super hot outdoor weddings. The pockets in the skirt were great and were virtually undetectable, even with my phone and lipstick in them! Really beautiful, vibrant pink color.

LOVED THIS DRESS. So many compliments, no one had anything similar.
Amazing color and I am obsessed with the flower detail! Much more purple than the picture shows. Matched perfectly with my boyfriend's navy suit. It's a fitted dress, not stretchy at all. Very tight in the bust. It actually didn't really fit my bust (36G), I could not zip when wearing a bra. But I just adjusted and it ended up working by showing more cleavage. Hides rolls well on the front, recommend spanx for the back.

First rental- can't wait to try again
It was a nice dress- by the end of the night the under arm area was really uncomfortable - the 6 would have been too big in chest area so going up a size wouldn't work. Lots of compliments - embroidery makes it stand out from other dresses.

Eurofest Perfection!
Rented this for Eurofest and our group dresses up every year. This dress fit the occasion perfectly, and was made even better by the addition of an apron! The pockets were AWESOME as it was the perfect place to stash my phone while we were on the dance floor!

Unique, but loose
I wore this to an outdoor wedding reception. It kept me fairly cool during the event, but I had a problem with the chest being too big. I am smaller chested and the top was so loose that I was constantly worried about my boobs showing. The dress is made from a different material (almost feels like plastic) and the color of the dress and the embroidery is beautiful! Since the top was so loose I was unable to wear my bra because it kept showing, so I had to go bra less which made the loose top even more of a problem. The rest of the dress did fit true to size. If you are bigger chested this dress would look great on you! You could probably even wear a regular bra! Overall, it was a beautiful dress, but if you're smaller chested I would probably not recommend.

Great wedding dress! The pockets and skirt were so fun!
I wore this dress to a black tie optional wedding and it was a hit. I got tons of compliments and my husband loved the way I looked! The fit was a little tight in the bust. I'm a 32 DDD so a size 8 would have felt a little more comfortable but the 6 fit good too. Wanted to keep it!!!

In LOVE!
This dress is everything! The colors and embroidery are beautiful and the fit is flattering and comfortable. I had rented this as my alternate for a previous wedding in a larger size and was so in love with it and bummed out that I couldn't wear it that I had to rent it again in the correct size! The material is thick enough to be able to wear regular undergarments and the pockets are great. I so wanted to buy this dress!

The dress fit well. I have no chest so I needed to wear a padded bra. Nicely made and the lining made it so comfortable. The pockets were a bonus. Absolutely beautiful color. Highly recommended!! The RTR process is great.

Nice detail but not my style
While this dress was clearly made well and was delivered in good condition, it was larger than expected and did not accentuate my figure. At 5'3" the hemline on this dress was past my knees.

Felt very feminine and confident in this dress
The best part of this dress is the satin/silk interior, it feels amazing on. The dress also has pockets! I got compliments on this dress all night. Because of the thick material and embroidery, it did not require a bra. Be warned, you will need to steam or iron this dress before wearing, it doesn't travel well.

The color was stunning and the embroidery was incredible!
Fit was very true to size. I'm tall, 6'0 so the length was perfect for me. It has huge deep pockets which I loved. I didn't think the neckline was too revealing but I'm smaller chested. My only concerns were that the fabric was so heavy and I wore it to a summer wedding. Also, it arrived very wrinkled. But other than that it was beautiful, everyone loved it, and I would definitely recommend this dress!

Great quality
This dress is beautiful in person, and you can really tell it is great quality. The fabric and embroidery is heavy enough to dress up the bright pink color. The straps were too long for me though, so I didn't wear the dress because I was uncomfortable with how loose the bodice was. The dress is somewhat low cut, but it does not show too much cleavage on a small/medium chested person. I wish this dress would have worked out because it would have been perfect for a formal event.

Brilliant color, great silhouette, pockets!
This beauty was so much fun to wear. I loved the deep V neckline, fitted waist, and flare skirt. The length made it especially appropriate for a formal event like a wedding. The embroidered flowers over the magenta fabric felt classic and current at the same time. Most importantly, it had pockets!!

Elegant and effortless, show stopping piece
I rented this dress for an event at a country club. I got tons of compliments all night. The dress was comfortable and easy to move in on the dance floor. The details are elegant and showed off just the right amount of cleavage. I wasn't going to wear a necklace but the necklace seemed to tie the outfit together. I also didn't need to wear a bra. I am typically a size 4 but sized down to the 2. In my opinion, it fits a little big, but not much. This dress is sure to make your next event special.
