Stylist Review

This dress was even more beautiful in person! The embroidery is so pretty, and the colors are really nice! It was a very flattering fit, but honestly my boobs barely squeezed in there. A small detail that I loved was that the straps were velvet, which was a really nice touch! I'm typically between sizes 8 and 10, but the 8 fit really well other than the bust!

Dress that makes you feel like a sultry princess

Fit well in the bust and bodice, not too tight, skirt was a little heavy but fine for a night of dancing

This dress is beautiful. The straps are adjustable which is always a plus! The dress cuts right under your chest so any sizes bump will work. Highly recommend!

Unique evening gown that fit like a glove.

I wore this dress for a black tie charity event I attended. The dress was beautiful and I receive a ton of compliments. The quality of the dress was high. The embroidery was beautiful and the straps and waist are velvet material. A few notes: Although the description says you can wear this without a bra, if you are a c-cup or larger, I would recommend wearing a strapless bra with this dress - otherwise the top of the dress will start to sag (this happened to me) and leave some gaps in your chest and stomach area. I ended up having to wear a strapless bra with it. Also - because of the embroidery and lace material, the dress is very hard to zip up. I live by myself and it took me a solid 15 minutes or so to get the dress zipped because of the material which kept snagging. I am 5'6" and could only wear 2" heels or else the dress would have been too short. Otherwise, I would rent this dress again!

My favortie dress ever!!

Wore this dress to a formal wedding and absolutely love it! I' m usually an 8 and the 8 fit perfect. The reviews are right the Zipper is a tad difficult so know ahead that you will absolutley need someone to help zip this for you. Also, im a 36 B cup and I really think anyone over a C cup would have trouble holding up the girls. The straps are thin and arent there to really hold up too much in the breast area. It worked perfectly for my size. I went braless and it was totally fine. The gown is gourgeous and the prettiest thing I have ever worn. The dress is forgiving if you are looking for something beautiful but not fitted. You will not be disappointed with this dress. I hate that I had to send it back.

**Gorgeous** dress, but rib cage/bust area is too small

This is a phenomenal dress. I did not get to wear it, and that makes me very sad. The 14 long was perfect for me to wear 3" heels with and i am 5'7". I wasnt able to wear the dress though because I needed at least another 3" in width around the ribcage/bust to zip the dress up. I am a 38 DD. I'm so sad to return this dress.

Dreamy dress

I saw this at the store in a size 4. Tried it on and I totally fell in love. It was def too big (I'm normally a 0 or 2) but I decided to rent it anyway for a photoshoot with a friend. It is hands down one of the most beautiful dresses I've ever worn, even when it was too big in the bust/waist. 10/10 would recommend & rent again!

Wore it for a centennial gala...received so many compliments...Great color, luved the floral details

Runs a little small...normal size is a 10, but the girls couldnt breathe...went a size up. It was a perfect fit (straps were a little long, but easily fixed). Great for dancing, dress is super light, great details.

Just pass. It's an awkward fit and the dress is like an oven. Perfect for a gothic luau?

It was just all wrong...it was way too hot and not flattering at all. Also, the lace folds over.

Can I Wear This Every Day???

I wore this gown for an annual gala and was so happy I persisted through initial zipper challenges trying on at the store. I am between sizes, usually a 10 or 12 depending on designer and the 10 was a perfect fit. The only reason for the zipper being difficult was on account of the design, but the stylists at the store were extremely helpful, waxed it up for me, and on the night of the event I was able to zip without any help. The gown is stunning and I felt amazing. Accessorized with statement earrings and kept it simple otherwise to let this gown shine.

Spectacularly gorgeous

This style didn't fit me and I was heartbroken that I couldn't wear it to the wedding I rented it for. Plenty of room in the bust and belly/hips, but maybe think twice if you have a fuller waist or wider torso. It's so gorgeous that I had to review it even though I only wore it around the house!

Gorgeous Dress for a Princess

LOVE this dress but HOLY CRAP is it hard to get the zipper to zip past the ribbon at the waist (it was not a fit issue, but just a sewing reality when you join pieces of fabric). I had a team of people who had to wash any trace of lotion off their hands and one extra person around just to pray. Wow. If you are getting dressed with someone who has strong digits read on to the numerous positives. This fit like a glove and was even a generous length in Regular (I am a human giraffe). The embroidery is STUNNING and the only thing I noticed is that the neckline lace flipped down a little to reveal the nude lining, so I had to adjust it a few times. The straps are adjustable and I took advantage of that. Gorgeous dress.

Stunning detail & comfortable all night!

This is one of my favorite rentals yet! The quality is amazing and I love that it comes in a longer length. I'm 5ft8 and wore it with flats and it dragged by maybe an inch. I got so many compliments on the embroidery and felt beautiful in this all night! I wore an unlined bra because if I had opted for padding my 34 D's would have likely been overflowing the top! I don't have a bad thing to say, would rent this again in a heartbeat!

Rented for a gala, absolutely loved the dress!

This dress was so fun to wear! I wanted a gown that would be a little bit more unique and that would make a statement and this dress lived up to my expectations. I have a larger chest so I typically have to size up in dresses. I am usually a 10 in dresses so I rented the 12. The 12 fit but it created much more cleavage than I wanted for my event. Also, it is incredibly difficult to zip past the velvet band around the waist (no stretch!). I ordered the 14 as my backup size and ended up wearing that one because I was able to wear a strapless bra and control the cleavage a lot better. I feared that the 14 would have way too much fabric at the skirt but that was not the case; the dress did not feel heavy at all. Also, I am 5'9" and ordered a long and wore 3.5" heels with the dress which worked perfectly. I got so many compliments on this dress and was so sad to send it back!

Felt like a modern princess

Loved this dress! Used it for my final grad school gala. (As you can see all my friends were also wearing Marchesa Notte from RTR). Loved this designer. The waist area is a little tight so recommend going one size up. Too had padding so no need for a bra (I did use some double tape because the straps couldn't fully adapt and it felt a little loose). Length - I used 2 inch hills and while dress was long it was manageable - I'm 5'1.

Stunning

Colors were vibrant and the bodice created great lines. I should have sized down as I am a 4 on top and 6 bottom, but the 6 worked with a double bra. The straps are adjustable, which helped fit my frame.

Stunning, flattering, unique!

Absolutely fell in love with this dress! I went to the RTR store in Georgetown, DC and tried this on in a 10R, and it was way too short and a tiny but tight. I loved it, but since I'm 6' tall, I decided to go home and order the 10L, and 12L as my backup size. When I received it, the 10L was the right length once I loosened the straps a bit (almost too short still...I was only able to wear a 2-inch sandal-style stacked heel, but it ended up being perfect for the long evening of dancing), and still a tiny bit tight but once I got it zipped up it was perfectly comfortable, and I felt like the 12L would have been too loose, so I didn't even try it on. I wore it to a black tie gala in DC that mostly young professionals attended, and it was gorgeous, age-appropriate, and event-appropriate. The pattern and lace and every detail were absolutely stunning, a little bit sexy (especially when worn with a strapless push-up bra and the straps loosened!) but not too over-the-top, and I got a ton of compliments all night. I don't have enough good things to say about the dress! Only reason why I deducted one star was because the zipper was VERY sticky. I was unable to zip it and unzip it by myself, and my family members who helped me with it all had an extremely difficult time getting it zipped up--not because it was too tight, it closed easily, but because the zipper was just SO STICKY. This was not an issue on the one I tried on in the store, so it must have been a flaw on this particular dress. Don't rent the 10L unless you have roommates! lol

Beautiful dress!

I absolutely loved wearing this dress! I received so many compliments and it fit great. I usually wear a 6 and the 4 was a little snug but fit nicely. The only issue was the length - I had to order a Long and it was WAY too long. I am 5'7" and even with heels it was inches too long, so I had to pin it up.

Beautiful, Romantic Gown for a Spring Wedding

This dress is absolutely beautiful and flattering in every way (please disregard my husband's ridiculous pose :P ). The detailing on the embroidery is so intricate, and the lace on the black under-lining is gorgeous as well. I felt really beautiful in this dress and got a lot of compliments. I rented a Long, but probably could have gone with a Regular. The embroidered overlay is an inch or two longer than the lining - I'm 5'7" and wore 5" heels, but I still needed to pin up the overlay by about 3". The straps are adjustable, which is really nice. I have 0 boobs, so I probably could have gotten away without a bra, but went with a strapless bra to feel more supported. I'm a 4 on top and a 6 on the bottom, but I'm glad I went with the 6 - if you have a larger rib cage like me, the 4 would probably feel tight. If you're really petite on top, go with the 4 - the skirt gives you plenty of room on the bottom. It's also a really comfortable dress - definitely one of my favorite dresses I've ever worn!

Gorgeous detail!

Sent as a backup when my dresses became unavailable (return your dresses people!!) Gorgeous dress, with beautiful detail! Straps are slightly adjustable but are stretchy so it didn't help much. Those with a larger bust will have a more difficult time with this dress...runs smaller up top and has padding in the bust. Beautiful otherwise & fits true to size elsewhere
