Perfect for New Years!!!

Wore this dress for a New Years party and got compliments all night! It was mildly scratchy but not too bad and easy to deal with. It was such a fantastic dress and for so well. The cap sleeves were so delicate. I ended up wearing the 6 because i put on a couple of lbs from all the parties in the holiday season.

Absolutely gorgeous dress with the detailing

Beautiful dress, wish I could've worn it, but with my body type I typically have problems finding things that fit in the bust but are not too large in the waist. If this fits your body type the dress is really breathtaking.

Stunning detailing, very intricate

This dress was stunning, I received several compliments on it. I am normally between a size 6 and 8 depending on the brand, I wore the size 8 and it fit but the shoulders were a bit broad and it was a little bit loose yet still classy, I could have worn a size 6 instead if I had wanted more of a bodycon style fit.

Rented for a Great Gatsby themed work party. It was a great fit, loved the capped sleeves until they gave me the underarm red marks.

This dress was breathtaking! Perfect for a night wedding. Great RTR experience.

Dress does run a little small, I would suggest renting your size and also a size larger. Also dress is a little more embellished than I thought but also made for even more compliments.

Ran big in the waist and felt like it was for an older woman

The dress was beautiful , but even at 42, it felt a little matronly for me. I have a difficult time finding things that fit my hourglass shape, and this was another time I failed, despite reading all the reviews carefully. It wasn't terrible, but I could grab a handful of material at my waist, even in the backup size 2. I usually wear a 4 in things that are fitted in the hips. Maybe a 0 might have worked, but the dress still felt very Mother of the Bride to me. Love RTR, this just wasn't the right dress for me.

LOVED IT AND EVERYONE ELSE DID TOO!

I wore this dress to a New Years party and it was a hit! It's way more embellished than the pictures give it credit for (and it has a little stretch to it too so I could dance/sit comfortably). I got a handful of compliments all throughout the night and never wanted to take it off! Rent this and you won't be sorry!

Spectacular dress!

I ended up renting this from the Midtown store as a last resort after having sizing and zipper issues with the Lockhart dress and I am so glad for the hassle that has led me to it. I wore it to a 1920s themed wedding and received so many compliments the entire night. The detailing on the dress was gorgeous!

Most amazing dress!

This dress is absolutely amazing and pictures don't do it justice! It was comfortable, classy, and breathtaking! I co-chaired and event and this dress made me feel amazing. I highly recommend it! I don't have large hips or butt, but it might be a little tight if that is your problem area.

Dress fit extremely true to size however, the material around the neck and armpits was so itchy/painful by the end of the night. Such a pretty dress but would not rent again.

Loved this dress, super flattering

I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner and it was beautiful, super comfortable I received a ton of compliments. I didn't really need any jewelry because it's pretty busy. I wore the size 6, I ordered the 6 and 8. I could have worn either but the shoulders on the 8 were a little big. I am only 5'2 but this dress still fell where it would have! Loved it

Glamorous yet comfortable enough to wear all evening!

We were attending an evening wedding, which was quite glamorous. The fit was loose enough to keep me comfortable yet well fitting in every area (I'm quite busty (36DDD), so this was a welcome relief!) I also received numerous compliments on the dress from beginning to end! Would definitely rent again!

Compliments all night!

I wore this to a professional party that had a '20s optional theme. This dress was a perfect homage to the theme without being costume-y, and I received a ton of compliments all night. I am a large size 12, small size 14 (sometimes in between sizes) and I wore a 14 and it was really comfortable and not too tight, but it was still flattering all over. Also, this dress is not as short as it appears on the model in the picture. I am 5'10 and the regular size hit just above my knee making it appropriate to wear around my co-workers. I was worried the dress would be too short based on the picture, but this was not the case at all!

Dazzling & Fun, Just Too Big

It is a beautiful dress there's no denying that, however it ran quite big on my body and I'm not sure exactly why. I am usually a size 6 with a 32G bust, but almost everywhere the dress was just too loose to properly accentuate my body. Wonderful fabric though works well with almost anything.

Beautiful special occasion/cocktail party dress

This dress is beautiful and the true to size. I felt a little "mother of the bride" in it but the spectacular back made up for some of that - also pairing it the Zadig & Voltaire black leather moto jacket. I received many compliments and the dress is stunning.

Great dress! Perfect for a Great Gatsby party!

Loved it. It fit true to size- the zero fit snugly but not too tight. There were a lot of stray threads that had to be snipped off, but that's my only complaint.

Glamorous and can still dance in!

This dress was absolutely perfect for a winter wedding. I received so many compliments from people of all ages. The dress is fitted but not too tight and I was able to dance my face off! Sleeves were not restrictive which was awesome for dancing. Gorgeous, would definitely recommend!

Great dress, great fit, lots of fun to wear. Rated it a 4 bc I didn't like how obvious the sheer mesh was close up, and bc the black slip under the dress would peak out. Still loved it overall though!

The dress was so beautiful. Rented this for a Gatsby themed 1920s style cocktail party. Perfect!

Fit was pretty true to size. Usually a 10-12. The 10 fit great but was more snug. Went with the 12 at the last minute to have more room to dance. I have broad shoulders and was worried this would exaggerate them but it didn't. So glad I picked this dress!

Lots of compliments- very unique- no one had anything like it

I'm a 12-14 with a large chest. While it was a bit tight in the chest area the rest fit like a glove. It's a beautiful dress, I received so many compliments on it. It's definitely unlike other dresses. Even though I was going through a hard time mentally at this event - I felt beautiful. Highly recommend.

I generally love Marchesa, but not this dress. It was too small, so I couldn't wear it, but I wasn't disappointed because it wasn't that special. Quite short, too.

Beautiful but a bit small

This dress was perfect for the event I was going to (Roaring 20's/Great Gatsby theme) so I was super excited when I found. I got a 14 which is my normal size and would have gotten a 16 too but it either wasn't available or the dress doesn't go to that size. I could zip it to my bust, but if you have a bigger chest like me it's not going to work. The dress was beautiful though so I was definitely disappointed I didn't get to wear it.

Beautiful on Sight! <Size up>

Well structured with beautiful detail. Rented this and a back up size; but neither fit. Fortunately, since the design runs small it fit my coworker (pictured) who got to rock it at an awards show for our company. Needs little accessorizing since the dress has so much detail on its own. Plan for a nude bra and size up 2x.

Roaring 20s

Great dress for roaring 20s charity ball. I chose to also rent a necklace to cover the mesh portion at the top. This dress does run large.. I usually wear size 6 but ended up wearing a size 4. Strapless bra works nicely. Overall, received tons of compliments and this dress was well worth it!
