Gorgeous!
I loved this dress! I wanted a size smaller so the bust would have been a bit more snug, but it was unavailable. I read the reviews beforehand and prepapred for this with a backless bra and lots of fashion tape to avoid any wardrobe malfuntions. It was worth the work! Got compliments all night and felt beautiful!

This dress is really beautiful. The neck was a little large on me but was easily fixed with a couple safety pins.

Beautiful dress for a black tie wedding
The dress drapes well and the neckline is beautiful; I got tons of compliments. As others have mentioned, you'll show some serious side boob in this dress. I found that pinning the halter to shorten the top half of the dress improved the fit and reduced the side boob. I also used some tape and felt completely secure. I'm 5'3 and it was just a touch too long in 4 inch heels. The material is stretchy, and I would size down for your backup.

Amazing dress!
This dress was perfect for a glamorous wedding. There is definitely a lot of side exposed, but I used tape for support and secure on the front and did not have to worry about much more popping out the sides. Overall, this was true to size and beautiful, and I received countless compliments!

Hofburg palace elegance
I wore this gown to the New Years Eve Ball at the Hofburg Palace in Vienna, Austria. Perfect amount of glamour and class for this event thanks to the perfect green, and the beaded neckline. The fabric had some give and I was comfortable all night dancing and eating. I am small chested and the side cut was not too revealing, though I could see it would be on other body types. I usually wear a 0 and found this dress was true to size. I am 5'5" and with 4in heels the regular length was perfect on me. This was the perfect dress for a once in a lifetime event, and compliments abounded throughout the night!

The dress itself is beautiful; however, I am fairly small-chested and couldn't get the top to fit right. Without a nu-bra it was far too baggy, but the cut of the dress made it impossible to wear a nu-bra without it being seen.

Gorgeous dress, but it takes work to wear it right!
I loves this dress! I rented it for a wedding in August. Everything other renters have mentioned about the dress is true. There is a serious, "side boob" but as long as you have a small to medium chest and are in decent shape chest wise, you'll be fine. I wore nipple covers, but no tape was needed. I did need to wear a close pin on the top choker part of the dress to make it fit me correctly, and I definitely wore spanx under the dress to help cover up my stomach rolls or any unpleasant lines I wanted to hide. Very comfortable to dance in. I didn't receive any compliments unfortunately, but I loved wearing this and I would recommend it to anyone that doesn't mind having to take part in a few beauty and tailoring tricks.

Pretty but top did not fit right
The top is cut so that there is a lot of side boob. Also the halter was too loose. I did not think it would be comfortable even with fabric tape

Beautiful but issues with fit.
This is a gorgeous dress. Unfortunately the fit was off. It seems like the neck opening is too big. I have nursed two babies, so i had some gaping at the sides. I tightened the top (making a knot) and it was a lot better. The only problem was the waist was a little high, although that is a regular issue for me. I recommend it if you have full, perky breasts! I'm jealous! ;)

Stunning Gown with a tad bit much side boobage
I felt absolutely amazing, sexy and classy in my first RTR experience wth this stunning green gown! I received so many compliments regarding the fitting and the stunning beaded and jeweled detailing around the top and neck of the gown. The only warning/caution I would advise to be cautious and aware of is the "side boobage" of this gown. Although I felt amazing, I had to be conscious the entire evening to ensure the girls weren't busting out or sliding too much out of the sides. Next time I will get a gown that had a little more side coverage in the breast area. Otherwise, STUNNING!

The dress fit perfectly! It was comfortable. Everyone is very right about the side boob. I got compliment all night. I felt beautiful in this dress. The jewled neck made it easy to get dressed as I didn't need to think about accessories. I absolutely loved this dress

great dress. I really loved how it looked on me.
I used fashion tape to hold the sides down to lessen the amount of side boob.

Everyone compliments the dress all night.
I liked the dress. The side boob creates a little problem, every now and then my breast cups would show. I gained several pounds as of recently and that could really show. This dress is hard to pull of cause it's tight on top but loose around the stomach and shows so much skin, so keep that in mind. I'm 5'3" And had to wear the tallest heels I had and dress was still a little long. But this dress is very sexy and does show off your curves.

Loved it! But needed a little pinning
The fit was mostly great. Fabric had some stretch that was definitely forgiving especially if wearing a shaper. Definitely side boob but I didn't think it was too much. I did have to pin the halter neck as it was too long for me, but once I did this the fit was perfect. Also not too long with 4inch heels which is great because I typically need dresses hemmed (was super nervous for that). Would recommend!! Would wear again and again, made me a very self conscious girl feel beautiful for a night!!!

Beautiful but requires lots of effort to make it work!
This dress is seriously gorgeous and I received a ton of compliments, however I would definitely not recommend for someone struggling with new mom bod (like me! :P) Harnessing these newly weaned deflated-from-breastfeeding boobs into the side boob extravaganza that is this dress required a Herculean amount of fashion and boob tape. It was also not forgiving in the belly area so I was spanx-ing it up - however I think I probably showed my spanx off a bit because the slit was pretty high (and in the middle of the back of the dress? Kind of strange.) Overall very pretty and fit the occasion well, however I definitely would have loved it more pre-baby ;) good luck sisters in side boob!

The dress was actually my back-up selection. So glad! I received many compliments on the fit&color.
I am 5'51/2" and 130 lbs and wore a size 6R. The dress fit very well although a little snug through the hips. The length was perfect with a 2-3" heel. I did have to wear dress tape along the sides of the top. I have a smaller bust so I was afraid it would be too open. If someone has a larger chest size there would definitely be side cleavage. The only negative with this dress was the pearl clasp buttons at the back of the neck. They didn't feel very secure. I did notice that on the back-up size dress the buttons had been replaced with more secure buttons. Overall, a beautiful gown!

Unfortunately couldn't wear because of the top
Beware of side boob with this dress, I tried absolutely everything to make this work (tape, pulling together my sticky bra as much as it could go, pinning the top around my neck) because I absolutely love the dress, the top is just cut too narrow for any person, even someone that is flat chested. I just have a hard time believing that you could feel comfortable in this dress dancing, or doing anything for that matter, which is why I called RTR customer service and had another great dress overnighted to me, which turned out to be fabulous! Wanted to love this and make it work but I just couldn't.

This dress is really flattering but as others have mentioned, the side boob is real. Nothing two strips of fashion tape can't fix!! The neck detailing makes accessorizing easy (aka no real need!) and the open back is great. LOVE IT!!

Loved the color and beading on the dress! Functional issues made this dress great but not amazing.
First of all, the dress looks great and the color went great with my skin tone! However, there were some functional issues with the dress. I ended up wearing the 6R because I felt the 4R was a little short with heels on, but because of the bigger size, the neckline was much lower than it should have been. I ended up having to fasten the whole upper half of the dress with fashion tape to get it in the right place, which was fine, but definitely at lot more work than your average dress. Also, I don't know if this was just me, but the clasps for the top of the dress were incredibly difficult to get on/off, which just made getting in and out of the dress more difficult. Overall, while I love the look and comfort of this dress, you could possibly find something that's a little less work to put on/of and not require you to purchase fashion tape!

Comfortable, unique, elegant, and easy to move in.
I originally reserved a different less expensive dress but after consulting some girlfriends decided to change my order to the Marchesa Notte. First, I will say the process to change my order was flawless. I used the chat through the phone app to change my order and it was quick, efficient, and the consultant was patient and helpful. When I received the dress I tried on the 2 and it was perfect but the zipper was near impossible to zip up. The size 4 looked/fit just as good as the 2 and didn't give me any issues zipping up so I decided to stick with the 4. I have to admit I was a little worried about the side boob situation, but as the 1st time in 9 years since dressing up for a formal event (my own wedding) I decided to take the chance and I'm so happy I did! I wore this to a military ball and it was not at all inappropriate. With the right styling and accessories this is an elegant look for any formal occasion. The dress is fully lined so you have a fair amount of underwear options. I used nipple shields and double-seed tape just in case I had any wardrobe malfunctions but I was so comfortable that a slip of a boob was the least of my concerns the whole night. The length was also perfect. I am 5'4 and wore 4-inch heels and my feet barely showed. The slit in the back of the dress provided ease of movement and I had no problems walking/dancing. No one had anything like this dress at the ball! I am so happy with my experience on RTR and will definitely rent again! Thank you RTR!!

Stylist Review
Absolutely obsessed with the mermaidy shells at the neckline! I love this color and the fabric felt thick and beautiful - definitely hid any bumps much more than I was expecting it to. It was definitely small on my chest (lots of sideboob), but I think a larger size would've fixed that. It was snug, but didn't feel too small. It hugged me just right and was very flattering! This gown is a great way to pull off a darker color in the warmer months!

Precarious boob draping. Tape required. 10/10 recommend if your waist is small and your shoulders are big. If you have any side boob it's going to be first chair for as long as you have this dress on.

Stunning dress
This dress was beautiful in person. The neckline was perfect because I didn't need to wear jewelry. The material was thick so it didn't show bumps and lines underneath. There is a slight issue with side boob but I used fashion tape to hold it down. I honestly wouldn't have even noticed the side boobage had I not worn it to a work event. I got tons of compliments on it and wish I could wear it again and again.

Chic but revealing.
Beautiful gown! But totally backless. If you have a large chest at all, know this may not be the dress for your formal affair. The beading and neckline, column style skirt, and swooping back are so simple, and unique. Just make sure you have tape and nipple coverings.

Unique take on a standard silhouette
First, let me just be clear that the side-boob warning was NO JOKE. I am not well endowed in that department so it was a non-issue for me, but you are not going to be able to wear this dress without tape. That said, I LOVED this dress and would absolutely recommend it to anyone - I got compliments all night and felt great in it! The color is beautiful and the jeweled neckline is unique and fun.

This dress was perfect for the occasion. I wore it to a Gala.
This dress fit very well. I am 5'7 125lbs and wore a 2L. With 4 inch heels and it was the perfect length! I am small in the bust, 34B, and needed a little fashion tape for the side boob. It stayed in place all night and was a fabulous dress! Thick and great material.

The green is so vibrant
Love the emerald green of this dress. The beadwork was a little worn, but you couldn't tell. I have a small bust (32 A/B) so I didn't have any issues with side-boob. I do advise double stick tape and a pair of pasties if you want to avoid any malfunctions. Other than that this is such an elegant silhouette and was so perfect for the Gala I wore it to.

Amazing dress
I was worried about the "side boob" on this dress but with a little double-sided tape, it was not a problem. I also got nipple guards as it was below freezing. The beads on the front were gorgeous and I received tons of compliments while wearing this dress. I needed help getting the zipper up and buttoning the halter. I'm almost 5'11" and with 2.5" heels, the dress was just above the ground. I'd wear this dress again in a heartbeat.

Dress fit true to size and is cut in on sides so tape is helpful. Color is gorgeous and the beading at the neckline is actual beading and looks great. I'm 5'6" and with 2.5" heels the toes just barely peeked out. Great style for athletic build and with a smaller chest.

Perfect for the Holidays
I exchanged this dress at a rtr location and definitely am happy I did! It was so comfortable and beautiful. I got many compliments from people I didn't know. There was no size tag on the dress and the hanger said 2, but online it says 4R. I'm usually a 0R or a 2R. Goes to show you should always get the free extra size to make sure. All in all, it's about how you feel in it. Definitely needs fashion tape if you're worried about side cleavage.

Gorgeous Color- Great fit!
I ended up getting this dress because my original purchase became unavailable at the last minute. I was a little hesitant at first but once I put it on all was forgotten. . I am very small up top so the tape was very necessary. I love the beaded embroidered necklace. Some of the jewels looked a little damaged but nothing you could see unless you knew it was there. I would definitely rent it again

Although you do get sideboob, I did not mind at all. I just used tape just in case. The dress was stunning and I got compliments for it the whole night

Beautiful dress!
I would suggest sizing up as it runs small and the material is not stretchy at all. The side of the dress also cuts in, so be sure you're comfortable with some side boob if you have a larger chest! I used a little bit of fashion tape to keep things secure around the chest although I'm not sure it was necessary given how snug the dress fits. Overall, I definitely recommend this dress!
