I wore this for my wedding and it was a perfect fit! Beautiful dress, everyone said it was stunning!
Fit was great. I'm 5'5 with 34B bust size and the 4R was perfectly true to size. I was able to wear flats with the dress, but a small heel would have been great too.

My dress was gorgeous and fit perfectly! I received so many compliments all night!
My first military ball was the event I wore this gorgeous dress to. It fit perfect and I was just nervous about the bottom getting dirty but I just held it up while I walked. #militaryball #sexycouple #greatnight

Walking thru Philadelphia!
I ordered the 4L and 6L. I ended up wearing the 6L because the zipper was stuck on the 4L. Lots of compliments! I wore this dress in Black to a formal event in 2016 and loved it so much I rented the White for 2017. Fits like a glove! I'm 5'5 and wore 2 inch heels. Length was perfect to dance in .

Stunning Dress!
I LOVED this dress. The size zero fit perfectly with plenty of room to breath and move (dance) around in! It was incredibly comfortable and easy to get on and off. I'm 5'6'' and needed 4'' heels so that dress didn't drag too much on the floor, so it does run a bit long. Perfect for my senior prom!

Classically elegant, yet a bit more haute couture than usually wear. Loved the fit!
Admittedly, I was more than a bit hesitant about this silhouette as it is a departure from the more traditionally elegant evening gown I generally gravitate towards. However, it fit like a glove, hugging my curves in a classic and tailored manner. In a room full of hundreds and despite numerous other RTR dresses, not one other person had a gown with this silhouette and the light color stood out in a crowd of blacks, blues, and reds. This gown definitely falls into the category of ensuring the dress doesn't wear you and that almost kept me from it. But once on, it is exquisite! It does run a bit small due to the fitted nature around the hips, butt, and legs. It is a column dress with the tulle merely an overlay to the gold appliqué underneath, so keep that in mind. It didn't impede walking or sitting though (can I get amen, y'all?!). I am 5'9, wear a 4 or 6 usually and rented an 8L because of my hourglass shape. With 3 inch heels, the gown was perfectly tailored to barely sweep the ground which made walking far less complicated than in usually evening dresses. After the kind compliments I received, I would wear this gown again in a heartbeat - to the grocery store if I had to. ;) Classic, elegant, and chic: I highly recommend!

Gorgeous dress for a Formal event!
I ordered this dress in a size 8R my size, with an alternate size 6L (only available in long). The size 8R fitted perfect with enough room at the hips and buttock area, since I really dislike that pleated look when a dress obviously is too small foe that area. This dress complimented my body type well. I was a sighr fir sore eyes at the Gala. Thank you Rent the Runway!!

The dress was absolutely stunning!
I loved the way this dress fit. It made me feel like a modern day bride. I typically were a 4R, but I was able to fit a 2R and even a 0R so they run a bit big. The 0R was more form fitting but the 2R gave some wiggle room. I thought the 0R fit like a glove, but when I tried it on it had a huge stain on the right leg. A random customer told me to check the dress when I picked it up but i didn't have time. I wish I would have listened to her. Lucky the 2R worked out anyway.

When I received so many compliments about the gown.
Very comfortable and elegant. As I often say "Ladies keep it Simple, Sassy and Smooth". Be sure to ware strappy heels (makes it look sexy), refrain from shoes with any type of stones that will snag to your gown, it will not be a good look tripping over (SMILE). No it didn't happen to me because I switched shoes.

Loved loved loved this dress!
I wore this to an Inaugural Ball in DC, which is a black tie event. Ours was held at the National Portrait Gallery. I ended up finding this dress at the RTR store in Georgetown after my initial choice did not work out. The dress definitely runs a bit long (to be expected with a R length), but I absolutely loved it! I could have sized down, but they only had a 4R in the store, so I went with it. I felt like it still fit really well :) I easily wore a strapless bra with no issues, and the dress itself is really comfortable and easy to move around in. I got tons of compliments throughout the night. I'd highly recommend!

Turned every head and endless compliments all night
This is a gorgeous dress. I received compliments all night at the gala I attended. Afterwards we went to a bar around the corner and it turned a lot of heads. It's material is very light and not stiff. Note the color on the top half is a more blush/tan color, which is almost the same as my skin tone. I thought it was supposed to be more of a white sheer from the photo. It looked way better being my skin tone color. 10R wasn't available for me so I got the 10L. The body fit perfectly and the shoulders weren't as snug as another 10R Marchesa dress I've rented before, but it was a little long since I opted for flatter shoes. I'm 5'5, 143 lbs with a 34DD bust, wide shoulders and narrow back. Usually a size 6 or 8 in dresses depending on the bust. My measurements(bust-waist-hips): 41-32-39.

So many compliments and so fun to wear!!!! Gala gown and black tie /tux event.
I am 5'2'-- 117lbs. A/B cup size. 34-36 chest. This dress fit perfectly.!!! I had to wear 3.5 inch shoes and a slightly padded nude strapless bra. The size 4 was too much on the top part of dress but the length and fit through the booty would have been just fine.

This dress has presence. It makes you stand taller and it hugs your body in all the right places.
The shape was very flattering for my figure and I ended up wearing size 4R with 4” heels. I opted for a size 4 just in case the lace gown was going to be tight. The fit was perfect, it accentuated my waist and I added a sparkly belt so that I keep the crystal theme my sister, the bride, was going for. The dress hugs your hips nicely and the top fit well with my bust size and frame. The gold is a mixture of champagne gold/copper gold all combined in an off-white/champagne hue. I’m 5’8” and I wore 4” heels and the length hit the bottom of my heels just right. It didn’t drag and I didn’t need to hold it up once. I had a ton of compliments during the event and after when people look at the pictures. I have now done this a couple of times and I will continue to use this service not without asking again to include some bridal gowns as well in your collection. Thanks, RTR! I will recommend this service to all of my friends.

Beautiful dress
This was sent as a back-up dress for me when the black version I ordered was disappointingly unavailable. Even if it weren't a little bridal, I had ordered the black in a 0P, and the 0R they sent might have looked ok with 4" heels, but I was sure I'd be tripping on the layers of tulle all night. Fit-wise, the 0 fit like a glove.

*Swoon!* The Dress Is Stunning!
What can I say?! This dress is gorgeous! I wanted to wear Marchesa for my wedding and this was beyond my expectation! The gold is a mixture of champagne gold/rose gold/gold all combined in white. I'm 5'6" and I wore the 8L with 4 inch heels and it was still a bit long but that's exactly how I wanted it. My husband was speechless! The dress had a little seam that was becoming undone but a little fabric double-sided tape fixed it and you couldn't even tell. I love this dress and I couldn't been happier!

This dress made my wedding! My guests gave me many compliments. No one could believe it was rented
I got married in this dress. It was comfortable all night. I danced in it and when the reception was over, I didn't want to take it off. It also photographed very well. I recommend wearing nude colored undergarments, as my bra did peek out just a bit at the side arm area. In this dress, I felt and looked like a million bucks!

It was my wedding and it was beautiful!
I wore the 10 instead of the 8 because my boobs were too big for the 8. I adored this dress and I'm still getting tons of compliments on it. Smartest thing I did besides marrying him was rent this dress. Not sure why but it won't update my profile so... I am 5'9" and the long was the perfect length for me. Also, I wear a 36 DD so as stated before the size 8 was too small through the bust area but fit better everywhere else than the 10. Hope this is helpful!

We won the best costume - Marie Antoinette! As suggested by RTR!
I received the Halloween inspiration ideas email about 2 weeks ago and I always wanted to have a outstanding costume... So what a great idea to dress up as Marie Antoinette! I rent it, bought the wig, gloves, fan, etc. Combined with fancy jewelry and voila! I felt really like the French Queen! . The dress was so elegant and beautiful. I received so many compliments the whole night. I would definitely rent it for a formal event.

This dress was perfect for our courthouse ceremony. I received so many compliments!
I wear a size 6 in most dresses, and this was true to size. It fit absolutely perfect! I am 5'3", and was able to wear it with 3in heels, and later on with flats, and never had any trouble with the dress being too long. The material hugs your curves, but has enough room to allow for comfortable dancing, even if you have a bigger backside!

I'm 5'9", and this dress fit to a T. I work a normal heel, bringing the length of the dress just a little above the floor. It was extremely comfortable, and the material and detail work of the gold flowers was gorgeous.

Stunning
This dress was absolutely beautiful in person!! The pictures do not do it justice!! I rented this for my wedding reception and it could not have been more perfect. It was a little snug in the bust area, but I am rather gifted in that area. Every else fit perfectly and the dress was surprisingly comfortable. The long was perfect. It dragged the floor barefoot but with 4" heels it hit right at the floor. Over all I was extremely happy and was sad to give it back!!

Amazing fitted dress!
I wore this as my wedding dress and it was PERFECT. It hugged every part where it should and was commented on by everyone how unique and 'me' it was. I had matching Marchesa Notte jewelry to go with it (earring, bracelet and necklace) which really addeed the extra pop. I loved the dress so much I considered buying it, but would never be able to wear it again as it was my wedding dress. Phenomenal dress, my fav from the Marchesa Notte gilded collection and I tried them all :)

Beautiful dress
Will be a bit tight on the chest for busty women. Your bust will look squashed from the side, so I recommend a size up. Also a bit long, you will need very high heels.
