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!

This dress was stunning. I got so many compliments and I felt great in it.
I am between a size 10 and a 12 but went with the 12. I could have gone with the 10 because the top was a little loose. I am 5'11" and the length was perfect at the knee. I really can't say enough about how beautiful the design was. Perfect spring dress - can be dressed up or down. So flattering.

Great color and design, ideal for a wedding or bridal shower
Got a lot of compliments on the color and design but the fit wasn't perfect for me. Definitely better for those with a larger chest - I didn't quite fill out the top so I had to pin it in the back which was uncomfortable. I also felt that the 4 ran large and wished I had gotten a 2 or 0 because the waist was big.

Beautiful color and details
Top fits very large (I'm 36D and it was big). Hard to wear bra with back and neckline. sides of front also come down very low. Waist fits true to size.

Beautiful Dress, Great Colors, Ever So Slightly Itchy
Absolutely beautiful dress. Loved it and would rent again. The colors looked great in person and also photographed well. Worn to a semi-formal hotel ballroom wedding and it was perfect. Very easy length and felt appropriate but still fun. I found the top runs slightly large if you have a smaller chest (and I wore the smaller of the two sizes I ordered) but the waist fit perfectly. The only issue was that the neckline has a tulle underlay which irritated my neck a bit as the night went on. I would still rent it again, but that was the only downside.

Perfect for Kentucky Derby!
I love this dress! This was my first RTR experience and I'm hooked. I ordered this dress as a backup when my first choice didn't fit right and I'm so happy It didn't. This dress is gorgeous. I'm typically a size 10 (36C) and ordered the 10 and 12. I'm more athletic/thick and dresses tend to be tight on me, but the 10 fit perfectly - I didn't even try the 12. It fit great through waist and hips. Top was slightly loose, but it was fine. I didn't wear a bra and had no problems. There is a thin piece of lace that runs down the middle of the front and I wasn't sure if the white strapless bra I brought with me would show through, so I opted to skip it and was comfy all day. The lace details are gorgeous - birds and flowers. I wore the dress for about 12 hours outside and wasn't uncomfortable in it once - well until I got sunburn, then the lace rubbed a little on my shoulders. :)

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.

Rented as a back-up style for a wedding.
Beautiful dress! Lovely detailing! Interesting neckline both in the front and back. I'm a 34A and did not fill out the top at all. I think this would be better for a B cup--fill out the dress but still could get away without wearing a bra. I would recommend for any summer or spring wedding or event. But really--that detailing...

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.

Beautiful stylish dress for daytime formal party.
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.

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).

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.

Beautiful Dress!
Wore to an outdoor wedding, and received compliments throughout the event. Photographs beautifully. Fit was true to size, and perfect for my body type. Dress was so flattering, and very comfortable--plenty of room across the hips for my pear shape. Perfect for dancing!

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.

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.
