Beautiful dress. Just runs a little small.

I normally wear a 4 but went with the 6 for more comfort.

Unbelievably gorgeous!

This dress is STUNNING in real life. I gave it five stars because it was so flattering, but there were a few things that should be noted. 1- I felt it ran slightly small. I sized up to an 8 from my normal 6 and it was a perfect fit. 2- There is NO give to the fabric, making it challenging to put on shoes, and worse- impossible to drive in. the sleeves do not move. All that said, just size up.

Looks are deceiving--completely made of flashy sequins

You can't tell from the picture but this is all sequins -- way too flashy for a brunch party which is what I was renting it for --returning immediately --pretty fit bit super flashy and a bit cheesy

Stunning but super uncomfortable

Looked amazing and fit true to size. Wore to a formal wedding and it looks great in pictures. HOWEVER it is super uncomfortable and very tricky to go to the bathroom (forget about trying to dance). Scratches all over my arms from the sequins. Would not rent again.

Absolutely beautiful!

I'm a curvy lady. I fit in the 12. I didn't try the 10. I have big hips and wanted to move. I wish the waist was more cinched. But it stayed put even being heavy fabric. Compliments Guaranteed! I maybe could have fit in a 10. But I don't know if I would have been able to sit.

Can't move my arms

I loooooved the way this dress looked when I put it on, but I unfortunately couldn't move my arms past t-Rex range. It's gorgeous, but if I got it again, I might consider sizing up just for the arms.

Sparkles and class!

This dress was perfect for a black-tie optional wedding. I received compliments all night and felt very confident while wearing it. I was worried I'd have to size up because of some of the other reviews and comments, but my normal size 6R fit perfectly. You can't go wrong with this dress!

Beautiful detail and very flattering

I ordered this dress for my mom for a wedding, one thing to note is that it is all sequins so if you don't want a dramatic look this may not be the dress for you. This was a beautiful cocktail gown that had a very sexy fit and beautiful detail.

Didn't wear

The dress is really beautiful but I don't know how anyone has worn it! It's heavy and thick. And while the sequined pattern is gorgeous it's really really flashy. Felt way too over the top for a wedding and was more Gatsby

My glamorous casual Friday work look. Day to night!

I'm 5'6 and a half, 150 lbs, 36D, 28 inches hips 39.5. SOOOOOOOO! 😂 I know i'm being extra for casual Friday by wearing this dress. I absolutely love it though! I feel elegant and with the blazer very chic, professional and unique. I really like this dress and the details. The lace trim on the top and bottom of the dress is a lovely touch. I feel like i'm stepping outside the box by wearing this to work yet, it some how works. I love the fit for my waist and would rent again. This outfit is definitely a day to night easily and perfect for that sought after hour glass figure. I added photos from my vlog on Instagram @Mrs.chicchanel where I also have a video of the dress and more description.

Pretty dress. Ran a little small.

This was an option I selected for a wedding. It was a pretty dress but definitely snug. I needed to be able to dance and eat at this wedding and I don't know if it would be possible. I loved the sparkle and the lace. Would probably recommend this for a cocktail party or an event that doesn't require a lot of movement!

Really beautiful, but runs super small

It's an absolutely lovely dress. I wish I could have worn it. It wasn't just tight, I literally couldn't get it on my body. I would have probably needed to go up two sizes. I would love to rent it again in the future, in a larger size.

So many compliments!

This dress fit like a glove, it is beautiful and very comfortable. I wear sizes 2-4 depending on style, however the 4 fit perfect, not too tight nor too loose. My other size was a 6 but it was too big, I chose that due to comments of it fitting small. Suggestion: wear with gold jewelry since the lighter colors are more gold than white or silver as they seemed in the picture.

Gorgeous Dress

Heartbroken. Loved the dress but it did not fit. Too small for my waist. I am usually 2-4, but 4 was too tight.

Sparkly stunner

Rented for a black tie optional fall wedding and it was perfect. Only sad thing was that I couldn't raise my arms very high for 'Shout' due to the arms on the dress - so minor as I felt great (very comfy, no spanx!) and got compliments all night. All the sequins does make it a little itchy and heavy but not super noticeable once you have it on. Wore my regular size, and even though I'm a bit short I didn't have a problem with the length. It turned out a little more tea length instead of midi, but with heels I thought it looked fine.

Tight in chest

The sequins were not forgiving at all. I'm a 12 normally, so that's what I ordered. I think I would have been okay in a 14 with this one. Disclaimer: I do have broad shoulders and a larger bust.

Gorgeous!!! Runs small.

Okay- this dress is beautiful, but it definitely runs a full size small. I am normally a 6 or 8 on a bloaty day, but this 8 was a squeeze. It's right in the waist because it's a fitted bodice, like a corset, so definitely size up. I am more athletic shaped so it was tough on the waist. Regardless, I recommend renting. It's stunning and elegant.

Glamorous for a Miami Wedding

Sometimes it can be too much to wear all sequins, but the dress strikes just the right balance between flashy and refined. The neckline is complimentary and the structure keeps everything in its place. Others reviews were right, you have limited are mobility in the dress, but otherwise fabulous!

Glamorous!!

Absolutely gorgeous! I wore it to an evening formal wedding at the Bronx Zoo. Like all Marchesa it runs small...get the larger size you typically wear and also a size up from that. I'm a 10/12 right now and got the 12/14. I wore the 12 but honestly the 14 fit better (but it had a funny smell, which is NOT normal for RTR so just set that one aside). One tip: I held my clutch between my side and my arm in photos but because of the off the shoulder sleeve, it made me look wide. So set the clutch aside or hold in your hand and this will give you better photos. :-) But that's no fault of the dress...it was wonderful!!

Small in busy

Rented this for a wedding, sadly didn't fit. It was small in the bust (although I have a newborn and I'm nursing so my proportions are off), the other areas fit well. It's covered in sequins so a little more bling-y than I was anticipating

Simply Stunning!!!

This might be a lengthy review, but worth the read. This was my backup dress after my first choice didn't work. I am SO glad my other dress didn't work, not to mention that I saw someone wearing it at the event I was attending!! I have had my eye on this dress since it was released at RTR. Until now, I hadn't had an event that I thought it was appropriate for, plus it didn't have many reviews or pics of anyone wearing besides the models (shout out to all who review these dresses and post pics!). I took a chance on this dress and so glad I did. I am very busty (38 F/G) and this dress fit perfect. Also, I am hippy as well, but still fit great and I felt even better with good shape wear. I typically wear a 12 -14, mostly 14 in designer unless it runs large. In this dress, I wore a 16 and it fit perfectly. This has to be one of if not the most complimented dresses I have ever rented from RTR. I even had men stop me and compliment my dress! I wore this to a black tie optional event and it was perfect. Everyone loved it and I hope I can rent this again. Curvy girls, do not hesitate to rent..it will show off your shape fantastically! Loved everything about this dress from the lace detail, to the length and the color of the sequins. Rent this now!!

Sparkle and class!

I didn't end up wearing this dress as I preferred the other dress I rented, but this was a close second! It is a little on the heavy side, and I don't think it would be great for dancing or moving around a lot. Sequins are lovely and the lace classes it up a lot. Definitely runs small.

GORGEOUS

This dress made me feel like Dita Von Teese. Classy yet sexy! I thought the material around the arms would bother me or prevent me from dancing, but it was perfectly fine. There's not much give to the dress, so if you have larger breasts you might want to size up.

Like a Princess!

Felt like a modern princess in this dress! It is definitely true to size, maybe a little smaller than normal. The zipper is also VERY hard to pull up on your own, so have some help. Otherwise a beautiful dress. Felt sexy and modest. Compliments all night.

Can not even count how many compliments I received! Such a beautiful dress.

Fit was snug but true to size. The off the shoulder lace made for a little limited movement in arms, difficult for certain dance moves! Would wear it 100 times over as it was the show stopper in the room!
