RTR Stylist Review!

Marchesa Notte always pulls out all the stops with the intricate lace detailing on their styles. This style did not hold back! The green lace overlay definitely makes it a head turner. It runs small due to the fabric so I would definitely size up if you're curvier as it is fitted throughout. I would opt for a strapless bra with it and spanx if you want seamless fit! At 5'2," a pair of 3 inch heels were perfect to wear with it. I can see this style at a cocktail party or wedding!

Great cocktail option for those wanting a little more coverage

I rented this dress for formal engagement photos. This is a beautiful dress that is well made. This is on trend with the cut out shoulders and the modern lace. It's definitely a show stopper. It's a great cocktail-attire option for someone who likes more coverage and might be a little self-conscious about showing arms and legs (as I am). I'm in between 8-10 in most designers, but Marchesa is always small on me, so I'd suggest sizing up.

Informally voted best dressed at a post golf tournament party!

Not a lot of give so wore the 8 although I am normally a 6. I'd recommend getting a spare size up.

Received a ton of compliments and I felt amazing. It's truly a beautiful dress!

I'm 5'2" and it fits full length rather than midi length pictured (I had a bit of a mermaid walk). I would say it's true to size, but keep in mind it has no stretch. I have a small bust 32A and wore the 0, and would say anybody more than that would need to size up. The material was also a bit heavier, which made me nervous for a NYC July wedding. It was perfect for air conditioned rooms where most of the women were covering up with scarves. I would not recommend for summer outdoor event. The dress was fabulous and I never received so many compliments on a dress before. Overall I was very happy with it!

The fit is true to size, flattering and overall this dress is really pretty. I felt it was a bit too dressy for the event I ordered it for but I would order it again for another occasion.

Absolutely perfect dress! It has a very classy cut that is flattering. I had no issues at all with this dress. It is true to size. No bra needed. The green is stunning. I will be wearing this again.

I absolutely love this dress! It was great for a wedding. I didn't feel over or under dressed.

I believe my true size is a 8 but I ordered a 10 just in case and I' glad I did. If you have a bigger bust I would suggest ordering a size up. The dress was longer than I thought it would be but perfect!

Broadway Sensation

I wore this to a Broadway show, and between the restaurant and the show, I was stopped over a dozen times for compliments. The dress is much much more beautiful on, the fabric has zero stretch.... only a 6 was available, so I ordered that, but I am usually a 2-4. I think I could cave still fit into the 4, but I was completely comfortable in the 6, so it does run on the smaller size. If you are looking for a truly unique dress, get this!! The detail is amazing. So gorgeous.

You can dance in this or is it too tight at the bottom? Thinking of getting it for a wedding. Thanks!

Elegant and striking.

The dress fits very well on an hourglass shape. I typically struggle to find the right fit on the top and this one was great for my bust. I cheated and wore a regular bra that blended into the lace, but note that its designed for strapless. I am short so this dress was more like a full length dress on me than midi per the description. It was easy to dance and sit in and comfortable throughout the duration of the wedding. It is also more of a bright green in person than in photos. Highly recommend this one - lots of compliments from men and women!

Beautiful and unique

I wore this dress to my brothers wedding at a golf club and it is amazinggg. The picture doesn't do the color justice. It was a vibrant green and I received tons of compliments. I wore it with a strapless bra and had no problems. It was very fitted but there was room enough to dance and sit comfortably for dinner. I would recommend this if you want something dressy but also so different than what everyone else is wearing.

Wedding was amazing; received many compliments on the dress!

Dress is absolutely fabulous, however the fit was a little snug for a curvy girl like me. I was comfortable but should have gone up one size to be even more comfortable when sitting. I received many compliments on this dress!

Fun Dress

All the reviews said it runs small so I got the 4 with a 6 backup, and while the 4 fit fine, it was a little big and I should've ordered the 2. So if you are a 0-2 get the 0 and if you are a 2-4, get the 2...Its a great dress- glad I didn't buy it, because it's the type of statement you wear once.

I got SO many compliments on this dress! Loved it!!

It fit me fine from the waist down, but was pretty tight through the rib cage area. I'm 5'2", so I knew a full length gown would be too long for me. This dress was meant to be midi length, but was closer to full length on me.

I wore this to the HBO Emmy party where many where coming from the Emmys in gowns

I am normally a size 2 and have hips/a butt, but in this I wore a size 0 and it fit me perfectly and hugged my curves. It's a little hard to zip in the back, so make sure to have someone around to help you. The bottom of the dress hit at my ankles, but it is definitely long enough to wear to a black tie event as a gown. Very sexy and formal, lots of compliments. Dress is comfortable, but stairs are a little difficult as it's tight down to your ankles.

It is the perfect cocktail dress for the holidays. Truthfully, I wanted to keep it.

It was a little loose in areas where it looked more form fitting on the model (waist & hips). May or may not have been stretched out a bit but still so beautiful and elegant! The lace and detailed embroidery made the dress unlike any other.

I got so many compliments on this dress! It's so flattering and beautiful!

The fit is perfect, true to size. The material is very stiff it has no give at all, so make sure you have a little room to move around. And if your planning to drop it low on the dance floor at the event your going to, this is NOT the dress to wear. It will probably rip in 2. But I loved it!

MOST AMAZING DRESS I'VE EVER WORN

I can't describe how obsessed with this dress I am. From the second I saw it on RTR I was dying to wear it. I was worrying it would be too formal for the wedding I was going to, but it fit in perfectly with the typical cocktail attire for the wedding. I tried both sizes on and I was in between, so I went with the larger size for comfort. The zipper is a bit tough above the seam so you will probably need help zipping and unzipping. Thankfully there is enough room in the dress to lift it up when you have to go to the bathroom so you don't have to zip in and out every time. Everything about this dress is gorgeous, the colors, the details, the silhouette. It isn't stretchy but you can definitely move and dance in it. The structure also sucks you in and makes your shape look nice. I had random people stopping me on the street telling me how much they loved my dress. It's soooo luxe and chic and amazing and perfect I wish I could wear it a million more times.

Striking dress for a Black Tie Wedding

The dress fit perfectly. Expect it to be gown length if you are petite. I'm 5'3 and wore medium height high heels. I received multiple compliments on this dress since it is so unique and the color is striking. The hi- low length also gives it a very contemporary feel. There is netting around the neck that is very mildly itchy but I have extremely sensitive skin so probably wouldn't bother most. My daughter in law ( pictured to my right)also Has a Rent the Runway dress on in this photo and looked fabulous!

Wore this dress at an Indian wedding and it was so original that it gave me that wow factor

It is true to size so it will hug your body really tight. It won't be forgiving if you have some areas you want to hide... The dress is very beautiful and the lace details is intricate and so pretty. The green color has a nice pop to it. I had fun wearing this to the wedding.

The perfect dress with just enough edge.

This dress caught my eye early on while I was browsing for a dress to wear to a wedding that my boyfriend was the best man in. I kept coming back to it and nothing else compared. As other reviews said there is no give what so ever so I sized up and wore the 4 for mobility while dancing. Received so many compliments, people even saying I was best dressed! Loved this dress so much.

Love, Love, LOVE this dress.

This dress was amazing. Beautifully made and perfectly sized. The emerald green is the perfect color to really make this dress pop. As soon as I tried it on I was racking my brain trying to figure out how I could afford to buy it (which of course I can't). I received an insane amount of compliments the entire evening, so this is definitely a show stopper. The only down side (other than the fact that I couldn't keep it) is that the style of the dress will require you to shorten your stride since the bottom doesn't have any give. However, there is more than enough room to walk comfortably, and I never felt like I was tripping over myself. HIGHLY recommend!

I felt so beautiful in this dress

The fit is tight around the bust and rib cage for me. The zipper was tricky and very long. I turned it around to get past the waist seams then turned it back around to zip the rest of the way. My husband the night before could not zip it. So I'm glad I practiced a couple of times. The length is wonderful and very comfortable once in the dress.

A sexy statement dress that is wedding appropriate.

This dress was perfect. It hugged in all the right places, but the thick fabric and lace overlay provided nice camouflage for any bloat that came from feasting and drinking. I felt sexy but still wedding appropriate. The dress is also lined exquisitely so you don't have to have any concern about it being itchy or stiff. I received so many compliments on this dress that it became a little too much - no kidding. This dress really is a work of art. If I had to point out anything, I am 5'5 1/2 (specific, but just for good measure) and I did hope the dress would be a bit shorter, so that it hit in a similar place as it did the model. Instead it went down to my ankles which gave some resistance while walking, similar to a pencil skirt.

Got endless comments on this dress. Everyone seemed to love it

Wore to an Indian wedding. I think this dress is very nicely detailed and the fact that it is an expensive dress is shown through that detailing. I ordered a 4 and a 6. Normally order a 2 and a 4 and probably should have, the 4 fit, but I'm short wasted, so I'd have liked to see how the 2 fit too. The dress I got was a little worn, several stings hanging off, which we snipped off before leaving, but other than that it was in good shape. Only I noticed the minor wear.

Felt great in the dress and received so many compliments!

Generally do wear a size 0 in dresses but the neckline / shoulder of the dress made it feel very claustrophobic in the size 0. I ended up changing to the 2 at the last minute. The dress doesn't have any give; very woven. If hesitant, order your true size and 1 size up.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress. Total show stopper. The green is beautiful.

The fit isn't so much tight as the dress itself just gives very little--I have never had better posture than when I wore this dress! You can still move and dance although it is a bit restrictive. I am 5'5 and I thought the dress would be more in the midi category but it was definitely closer to full length.

The dress was a major statement and the color is fabulous. The dress runs small... I️ normally wear a 10-12 and I️ ended up with a 14... it was a perfect dress for a petite person cause it runs long and looks formal.
