Great dress, good quality, fun pattern, fits well.
The Lace detail is see through. The dress appears to have had some type of base layer which did not arrive with the dress. A slip is not necessary however. My boyfriend said it was too bad this dress was a rental.

Pretty but tight in bust
I'm a measely 34D and this sucker was TIGHT in the top. The skirt is quite full so not sure it's the best fit for an hourglass or pear, especially if you're larger on top. It was quite pretty in person, but I'd probably not wear again.

RTR Stylist Review!
I felt like such a fairy in this dress! I actually called this style the "fairy dress" when I first saw it. It is so incredibly beautiful with all of the intricate details it showcases. It is like a work of art! This style definitely fits true to size. I wore a size 0 and was perfectly comfortable in it dancing all night at my cousin's wedding. People could not stop complimenting this dress either! It is more stunning in person so I couldn't blame them. Paired with strappy heels and a gold or blush clutch makes this style perfect for any special occasion you have.

Meh
This dress was sent as a replacement since someone didn't return my original dress in time. I give props to RTR for trying but this dress made me look like a shiny over stuffed couch cushion. The top squished my chest area and the bottoms fluffed out adding weight to my hips. It was also way too short for me. Very pretty on the hanger but not my style.

Not my best pic, but dress was fun and sassy. Everyone loved it-perfect for the Mardi Gras theme!
Wish I had gotten it in time to know that I needed a different bra (had to go without, which I normally hate doing, but not so bad in this dress). Pockets were awesome and fit was great.

SO SPARKLY
This dress fit perfect! I was worried about the beading on top being uncomfortable on my arms since I have sensitive skin, but Marchesa never disappoints, and the beads were in all the right places. I love loud dresses and this took the cake! I wore it for a family gathering and was very comfortable. I loved the fabric of the skirt as well!

I rented this dress for my bridal shower tea party and it was absolutely perfect!
I don't usually leave reviews but this dress for me in all of the right places and made me feel like a princess. I'm usually a size 8 (bust 32DDD and waist 29") and the 8 fit me ok but the 6 was more form fitting and made my waist look smaller. But both sizes looked great! I would definitely recommend this dress! It's very special!

Great dress for fundraising gala.
I loved this dress. It definitely is much prettier in person than online or even in the photo. It has a great shimmer to it. Dress looks great with nude, brown or black heels.

I got SO many compliments on this dress. Everyone at my bridal shower LOVED IT! Fit perfect too!
The fit was great, I fit into the size 8 but it was a little tight on my chest. I am a 34DDD so it is usually hard for me to find a good fit. I opted for the size 10 which gave me more space up top and still has a nice shape in the waist for me even though it was on the looser side. I got SO many compliments about the dress it was unreal. Perfect for a bridal shower you don't want to wear solid white to. It went with the theme perfectly and added a little extra touch. Highly recommend! It wasn't too short. Not too showy. Also could move fine in it. Perfect fit. If you are chesty, get the size up as your extra size.

BEST DRESS I'VE EVER WORN
This dress seemed bold/a little out there, so I was nervous to rent it. I'm so glad I went for it. It is so unique, I never wanted to take it off. I wore this for a formal New Year's Eve wedding, and loved it so much! I was SO sad to have to send it back! I got so many compliments, and the intricate designs were beautiful. Flattering fit and comfortable. RENT THIS DRESS!!!

Fit was almost perfect. I have a small chest so it was a little baggy up top but that's expected. Definitely flattering for all shapes and sizes!

It fit pretty true to size, but I went with my back up plan which was a 14. It was comfortable and I received dozens of compliments. I rented this for my birthday tea party and I was really happy with it.

Birthday bowling!
2nd time I've rented this dress. Fits true to size- the 12 fit like a glove but opted for the 14 this time as knew would be active. Who doesn't want to wear a comfortable sparkly dress to the bowling alley?!? POCKETS were awesome, securely hid iPhone 6S and lipstick no bulge or falling out.

Shine on
Initially I was afraid to wear this cause it's so shiny and I thought it was too formal for exhibiting at a trade show in Paris. I brought it on my trip anyway and decided to be daring and wear it, which was the best choice I made! I paired it with black tights and flats and I got heaps of compliments on it and it was so comfy all day - not scratchy at all. AND it has pockets. Done deal. Note that if you're big in the chest there is no give so size up. Get this dress!

Beautiful and unique
I loved this dress, not only because of the design but the pockets and ability to wear a normal bra and underwear. Why it retails for so much is a little surprising - the fabric feels cheap. There were so many loose strings hanging off the skirt I had to trim them. Otherwise a fun dress.

A beautiful artsy looking dress that stood out in the crowd. It was very well made, and did not feel cheap or costumish, rather chic and unique. Would def rent it again!

Replacement Dress
I initially rented the Moschino Bubble Wrap Dress which was the only dress I wanted (after pouring through all of RtR 3 times) for my friend's summer black tie wedding. They emailed me the week of and said it wasn't available and I didn't have time to respond so this dress appeared on my doorstep. It was indeed beautiful, more so than the online pic or mine portray, but I was just disappointed about the dress I was really excited to wear. I was great for me since I'm short (it's short), you can wear a standard bra with it, and IT HAD POCKETS! I wore the 0 (am usually a 0). It was very appropriate, very unique, functional, comfortable, and I had a great night in it, despite me probably never having chosen it myself.

Great for dancing
Beautiful and unique dress--not the most flattering fit if you have a larger bust, but the skirt has heavy lining which makes it great for twirling while dancing without fear you're mooning the whole party!

Very Pretty with Pockets!
Loved this dress so much! I got it in the day that I needed to wear it so it was perfect! It fit perfectly and was very comfortable which is a crucial for me and a big plus was the pockets. I will rent this again for a wedding I need to go to in July!

Absolutely stunning
This dress was amazing I cannot say enough good things about it. I was showered in compliments all night even by the bride herself. It was so comfortable and so beautiful. I liked it best with nude straps shoes and a flirty pony. It's even more beautiful in person. I wore one size down than my usual.

Pretty Detailing
I liked this dress and received quite a few compliments but overall I thought this dress was just fine. The fit was a little tight but I am glad I stuck with my normal size. The bottom half has a silver thread that runs throughout the fabric which made it a bit fancy then I was expecting or noticed in pictures online- just FYI.

Special stand-out look
Dress was fun and so different from the LBDs. Fit was a little funny through the skirt as it really puffed out. Top was so pretty in person, could easily wear a 'regular' bra.

It wasn't right for me
This is an absolutely gorgeous dress...but not for me. It felt too "junior" with all of the embellishments and bold patterns. It would be great on a very young woman at a Springtime event, but for me it just didn't feel right.

Romeo and Juliet and fit for a princess
Great dress. No give in the bodice, so it was a little tough to zip. Beautiful overall and received lots of compliments. A bit like a ballerina on top of a music box, but appropriate for the event.

Perfect engagement party dress
I wore this for my engagement party and it was perfect! Enough sparkle and color to stand out from the typical white engagement dress, but still very classy and flattering. The skirt was full and fun to wear. The skirt length was short which added a little sass to the dress. This dress was spot-on for my engagement party.

Beautiful detail work.
This definitely runs large, in my opinion. I had room to spare around the waist and room to spare in the bust. I can't imagine it working so well on a taller person due to the proportions. The detailing is wonderful and over the top, but since the colors are muted it works quite well. It arrived in good shape and I sent it back today with two other pieces. I will say I found the top portion to itch ever so slightly.

This dress was absolutely beautiful! I recommend it for an event where one wants to stand out.
The fit of the dress was true to size. The bust was a bit tighter though. Make sure to wear a slip with the dress because it's a bit itchy up top, but it's nothing too unbearable. Overall it was a great dress, I wore it for my birthday.

I felt like a real work of art in this special dress!
I wore this dress for a formal NYE party. I loved this dress because it was feminine and different than many classic formal dresses. The flowers sewn on the bust were so pretty, I felt like a true princess! I ordered a size 0 and 2 and ended up going with the 0.

Great replacement for a no show shipment
This is a top quality dress! Incredible fabric and detail on this dress. Truly a fantastic designer dress. For me, as I'm quite long waisted, it hit me high and made the dress a bit uncomfortable, but I still loved it and got a ton of complements on the dress, design and obvious high quality.
