Beautifully made
Very well made, but fits large up top and slimmer in the middle so unfortunately it did not fit right. I recommend trying it though as the colors are vibrant and perfect for a day wedding or party!

Beautiful details, but better for those with bigger chests
Very pretty dress with beautiful details, however, it is definitely better fitting for those with larger chests. Fit me perfectly in the waist but the top was too large, so I decided to go with the other dress I had rented.

Such a beautiful dress
I absolutely love this dress. Right when I saw it I knew I had to rent it. It was sold out for a while, but I somehow got a size 6 when I'm usually a 4, but I figured it was worth taking a chance since I ordered a back up style. This dress is definitely made for larger boobs. I'm a 34b, & I was swimming up top, but with the detail it wasn't too noticeable. The detail and colors are amazing. If you can get this in your right size and can fill out the top or don't mind it being a little big rent this dress!!

Great detail and color on this very special and feminine dress!
I rented this dress when it was new on the site with no reviews available. I really loved the fabric/pattern/color. The cut of the armholes in front and back is great, as is the length with the lining a bit shorter than the crochet overlay. The way bird pattern is placed is very flattering and the pink 2-tone raised flowers are just gorgeous! My pink mani-pedi went perfectly and I wore nude sandals. I just wish I would have been able to get a smaller size. You can see in the photo that it's a bit large. I am small-chested too, but the fabric is very forgiving and disguises any excess fabric. I would suggest you order your usual size plus go down 1 size. Lastly, the dress looks very special - perfect for an event where you want to stand out a bit.

You WILL NOT be sorry if you rent this dress!
When I die, bury me in this dress. It is absolutely stunning! I'm typically a 4-6. The 4 wasn't available and I HAD to have it so I got the 6. It was a little loose, but not enough to make me not wear it. The 4 would have been perfect, but the 6 worked. I got SO many compliments on this dress. If you're debating renting it, just do it. You won't be sorry!

Gorgeous dress!
The dress fit well but was a little loose in the chest but was not an issue (a strapless bra could help). The color is gorgeous and the details are beautiful as well. Both dresses arrived in a garment bag which was easy for the return. Unfortunately the dress didn't arrive in time for my event so I did not wear it but would love to in the future. I recommend ordering a day or two before the event to prevent the issue. The dresses on RTR need to be ordered pretty far in advance to be sure to get the dates necessary. First time using it but I would certainly try it again- just bummed it didn't work in time.

Another beautiful Marchese
Wore this to my friend's engagement party. The Marchesa dresses never disappoint, and this was no exception. Beautiful dress with amazing lace detail. Fit was perfect. I am 15 weeks pregnant, and it gave just enough in the stomach. If I could change anything, it would be to make it just an inch shorter.

The dress is gorgeous and very flattering. I received many compliments. The color is bold and the lace is stunning. The top was a little loose but extra padding did the trick.

Stunning
This dress is absolutely stunning. I got so many compliments. The color is striking and the lace is exquisite. I had several people come up to me to tell me they were "obsessed" with the dress including the mother of the groom. It's truly beautiful. My husband loved it. The fit was not what I expected... it's a sheath. It hangs in a very flattering way, but it wasn't fitted. There are pros and cons to this of course. It wasn't tight anywhere and it was very comfortable and slimming. I have a straight body type- 112 lbs, 32d, 5'5". Its nice I a straight body type. I'm sure it would be amazing on scurvy one to fill it out. The whole dress runs large. I didn't even try on the 2. The dress has cutouts that I did not want to sacrifice in order to wear a strapless bra- but I could have worn a strapless bra low. The he sides of the dress are a little low. Instead I wore a fashion forms backless I bra. It was perfect! The top does run a bit large, I think you need something for a lift and filler. I have to wear a bra, so this was a great option. Overall, gorgeous dress. Perfect for a summer wedding. Very classy, little sexy, and a true one of a kind stand out.

Won "best dressed" at my brothers wedding :-/
Beautiful dress. The back dips a bit lower than a normal strapless bra so be sure to either have fashions tape or safety pins handy. The just ran too I for me to go bra-less or to use the adhesive bras.

A Fun Dress!
I loved this dress. It's a little different from my normal style but it looked really nice on and I got a lot of compliments on it. Like others have said, it runs a little big in the chest, but normal in the waist/hips.

Amazing color and lace detail
This dress was a gorgeous material and had a great color combination. I was so happy with the dress quality, but didn't love the style. I felt like it was just a bit too much going on and I didn't like wearing my hair up to show off the neckline. A major pro was it was incredibly comfortable. I could eat and dance with zero problems! I'm usually between a 4 and 6. The 4 fit perfect with just a little extra room, a 2 would have been tighter and a 6 would have been a tent.

Such a great dress for a summer wedding!
It was a little big on the top but unnoticeable. I rented this dress for a wedding abroad and I didn't have to worry about ironing it which was awesome. The dress fit very well overall.

Perfect for a Summer Wedding
I wore this dress to a summer backyard wedding in Los Angeles & it was perfect! A tad big in the bust, but I secured with fashion tape so it was fine. Absolutely in love with this rental!!

Stand out dress
Was not happy when they only sent my back up size of a 14 and never sent the 12....but I made it work! Really thing the 12 would have looked more flattering but with a little fashion tape to keep the top in place I think this dress really looked nice.

Beautiful wedding guest option
This dress by far was the most expensive one I've ever rented. But, it was worth every penny. The back design is ideal for covering up a weird sports tan line that this time of year tends to happen. I'm usually between an 8 and a 10, but, the 10 was unavailable. I gambled and went with the 8 and 12. This dress is meant to be fitted. The 12 was a little too big and didn't sit right. I went with 8, but, I do think the 10 would have been perfect. I'm always hesitant with sizing but was very pleased this was really spot on. The fabric was light but thick enough to not see anything. I highly recommend this if you want to make a statement at a summer event!

Unique but not weird
I received loads of compliments on this dress. It is very striking, feminine, and classy. The dress was comfortable. However, it runs big so fashion tape is a must. I used the tape to hold up the top of the dress by my side ribs as it gapped. The back is too low for a strapless so I'd recommend a sticky bra.

Unforgettable dress!
I loved every detail of this dress, from the high neckline, gorgeous lace and flower details, and vibrant colors. I felt that it fit true to size, and was long enough to make me feel comfortable bending down to pick up my kids.

Lots of compliments!
This dress was very pretty and I recieved lots of compliments. It was perfect for a summer wedding. It was larger in the bust area as many pointed out in their reviews. I used tape to tighten it was less noticeable. I likes that you could wear a strapless bra and it was very comfortable.

Vibrant and elegant dress!
Wore this gorgeous dress to my 30th birthday/engagement brunch. I am usually between a size 4 and 6 and the 4 fit like a glove. No problem wearing with a strapless bra. Didn't notice the bird pattern in the lace overlay until it arrive--such a beautiful detail! I got SO many compliments and felt so elegant. Thanks RTR!

This dress fit perfectly.I usually wear a 6 and the 6 fit like a glove. I was able to wear a strapless bra and I filled out the top (36 C). I received so many compliments and actually comfortably wore it to 2 weddings in one day!!!!

Unique
Loved this dress! Very flattering and fun texture. Loved the cut although it runs big. I'm usually a 4, sometimes a 2 and I rented the 2 because other reviews said to size down. I probably could have worn even the 0, but the 2 still worked. Great length and not too tight around the legs. Underlay is long enough too.

So sad I couldn't wear it :(
This dress is stunning!!!! I mean gorgeous! The lace is high quality, the colors are amazing! And the style is unique. However.... it runs huge! I am normally a size 0, sometimes a 2. I rented the 0, and it was falling off!!! I really wanted to make it work, put a little padding in the bust, fashion tape, etc. but it was just too big to pull off, so I didn't end up wearing it. It also is an interesting cut on the top so a strapless bra may not even work. If you have a larger rib cage and bust you can probably make it work, but size down for sure!

Love!!
I loved this dress so much, I didn't want to take it off. A pretty royal blue with pops of bright pink throughout. The neckline is very unique as well. Normally between a 0 and a 2, I was worried when RTR notified me the size 2 was no longer available, but the 0 fit just fine.

Super cute and comfy dress
Love this dress it was so comfy. Had to get a strapless/backless bra to wear because without one my boobs looked saggy. I definitely had to keep pulling up the top park as it was a little big. But overall this is a gorgeous dress!

Unique and flattering dress with beautiful details!
I got this dress as a backup style when there was a problem with the dress I originally ordered, and I'm so glad I did! Worn for my birthday dinner, absolutely loved it! Got so many compliments! The cut is super flattering although it is a tiny bit big in the bust (easily fixed by wearing a strapless bra). The detailing on the lace is so gorgeous!

Gorgeous dress for an outdoor wedding
Wore this dress to my brother-in-laws wedding and was so happy with it. I read multiple reviews before renting and was a little worried about the bust being large, but it fit great. I am usually a size 4 and ended up wearing the 2 and honestly thought the 0 would have been a slightly better fit (which is insane), but the fabric was very forgiving and I was the only one who knew it wasn't as fitted as it could be. I got compliments all night and best of all it was super comfortable for a later summer outdoor wedding. I didn't want to send it back!

Unique and colorful!
This was a replacement dress that was overnighted to me bc the original dress I ordered was way too small. As always, the RTR help desk was amazing and within minutes of realizing the original wouldn't fit, this one was on the way. It runs on the large size of "true to size" with plenty of room in the chest. I'm flat and it was a little large on me on top. I wore it to the Saratoga races on Travers day and it was perfect for summer/outdoor/work environment/special event. I received loads of compliments. Rent the Runway for the win! (Again!)

Loved this dress!
I absolutely LOVED this dress. I had to wear a strapless push-up bra because the bust was a tad bigger than expected, but this is the best dress ever! If this ever goes on sale I'll buy it.
