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.

Lace. Birds. Flowers. Compliments.
I was super impressed by the dress as soon as I put it on. I couldn't stop looking at the birds and flowers and pointing them out to everyone who saw me try it on. The neck area could irritate a bit, so I rubbed on some anti-chaffing stick. The chest area is very flattering as the shape eliminates "side boobs." I usually wear a 0 or 2, and ended up wearing size 0 to the wedding. The dress falls to knee length for me, my fiance, parents, cousins, relatives, and strangers all complimented on the dress. "You look hot." "This dress is suitable for you." "I really like this dress... you rented it? You should definitely buy it." I felt great in teh dress & would definitely rent again.

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.

Compliments ALL NIGHT! Great dress for a wedding!
This was a fantastic dress! It was super comfortable, and I received compliments all night. I found that it ran a little large. I'm a true 14 but the 12 fit me perfectly. The bust on the 14 was way too big and I would've fallen out of it, no doubt. This was a perfect choice for a wedding!

This dress was perfect and so flattering for a pear shaped woman!
This dress was seriously perfect. I wasn't sure how it would fit based on the pictures, but it really did fit well. The whole dress fit nicely, just a comment the top was a little loose on me. I didn't have to worry about it falling down though because of the way the neckline is. I highly recommend this dress.

Simply gorgeous! So elegant and classy.
Material is kind of scratchy, so beware. Also it's very very loose up top, but then again I'm only a 32B.

Not good for a short torso
I ended up wearing my backup dress instead. The dress is beautiful, but the fit didn't work on me. The neck detailing was too big/long for me, which made the dress sit really low on my bust. Just a note though - I was concerned about the sheer panels in the back, but you couldn't see my nude bra through them at all.

I was unsure about the knee length when I put this dress on but I received compliments on it all night. I wore this dress with silver strappy heels. I loved the cut on the back of the dress. Runs true to size.

Gorgeous Dress
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!!!!

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!

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.

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.

Perfect for a vineyard wedding in July
Fit a little loose in the bust, but was able to make up for that with a strapless bra. Could have been worn without a bra. The dress is gorgeous, I received several compliments.

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.

Stand-out / statement cocktail dress
I really enjoyed wearing this dress to a formal summer wedding. The colors and lace overlay are striking. I normally wear a 6/8 and wore the 6. I probably could have comfortably worn a 4 too. As others have mentioned, the bust is surprisingly roomy. I wore a strapless bra low and found if I pulled the dress down, the bust area stayed in place. I was comfortable enough to dance in it all night. Received many compliments. Loved it with a nude sandal and white drop earrings. This dress is so distinctive, it was great to be able to rent it. If I owned it, people would definitely recognize it if I were to 'repeat' wear it. So RTR was perfect!

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!

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.

Gorgeous Dress, but runs big and not for the short waisted.
So this is an absolutely gorgeous dress but it is NOT for short waisted women, and it is very large up top. I still rated it five stars because I think on the right person it would be perfect. However, it took quite a bit of dress tape and safety pins to make it work for me, and I still wasn't entirely happy with the look (that said, I got compliments all night on it, so it may have just been me). I had read the reviews that it was big in the bust and to size down but had somewhat disregarded them as a 34DDD, but they were not joking -- it was still really big on me. The hips/stomach runs perhaps a little big, so as a typical size 8, I wish that I had ordered the six for backup (but still would have had issues with gapping because of the waist). I recommend this for long-torsoed girls and would recommend anyone that rents it to invest in some hem tape because of how large the chest tends to run.

Perfect dress for a beautiful summer evening wedding.
I wear a size 2 or 4 usually. The size 2 in this dress was the perfect fit. The dress is unique, well made and very comfortable to wear all night. The cut of the neckline and the back is absolutely head-turning!

Stylist Review
A unique cut and design to this dress! This colorful dress runs true to size. I would go one size up for the backup as there is no stretch to this fabric. There is comfortable room at the bust so this dress is great for any cup size. A strapless bra needs to be worn because of the cut on this dress. It is fitted at the natural waist but there is a decent amount of room in the hips. Due to the high neck, I would not wear a necklace with this dress. Instead, I would pair it with a nice pair of diamond earrings and a bracelet to match.

Very comfortable and unique. I received many compliments.
Jewelry could catch on it so choose accessories accordingly. I'm 5'4 and it was just short enough not to be too long. A bigger chest helps the dress stay up. I really liked wearing this dress.

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!!

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.

Beautiful dress for a warm-weather wedding!
Loved the color and detailing. Great, light-weight fabric. Neckline was super unique. Received tons of compliments. Downside - the bust was a bit large, which is a problem I rarely deal with. I was in-between sizes and sized up just to be more comfortable. Would definitely recommend sizing down for your backup size.

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.

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.

Runs large
This dress is gorgeous, the detail is really pretty, summery, and feminine. However it does run very large. Even the 0 was very loose throughout the chest and ribs. I wore a pushup strapless bra which helped, but overall the dress was big and because of that, not the most flattering.

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.

Pretty!
I've been wanting to rent this dress since it showed up on RTR and I was finally able to snag it. It's gorgeous. The top part definitely runs a little big, but with a bra it was fine (I'm a true size 4. 5'8, 128lbs, 34DD).

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.

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.
