Beautifully made, but decided not to wear it.
Where do I start with this dress? I was immediately drawn to it because I loved the delicate lace and the sheer neckline. I ordered it as a part of my unlimited subscription as a possible dress to wear to a Spring outdoor wedding. The Fit: I was pleasantly surprised that this dress ran true to size. Sometimes with really fitted styles, I have to go up a size because I have a big booty and wide hips and thighs. I took a risk and ordered my usually size 4. Not only did it fit, but it made my butt and thighs look awesome. I probably wouldn't recommend this dress for shorter girls. I'm 5' 6" and I felt like the length was ALMOST too long, but still doable. The bad: I really don't think I could eat a meal in this dress. It wasn't too tight, but if I didn't stand up perfectly straight, I looked pregnant. The stomach area is not forgiving, and I don't have a perfectly flat stomach. Also...it's pretty revealing up top. I felt comfortable because the lace covered a lot of my chest, but my 32D chest definitely was on display. I'm wearing a normal nude colored bra in this picture and you can't tell. Quality: Amazing! This dress just felt good! Ultimately, I decided against this dress because I don't think I could eat, drink and dance in it at a wedding and feel confident. I don't want to be uncomfortably sucking it in all night. It really is beautiful though.

The dress didn't arrive in time, so I didn't get to wear it.
The fabric was beautiful. It looks just like the photo. I have broad shoulders- I'm not sure this is the right style for my body.

The 4 was a bit snug but the 6 fit perfect

Beautiful Dress... Not for Petites
This dress is absolutely lovely. The details are exquisite and the dress is very classy. The reason for the 3 stars is that as a petite woman, I am just under 5'1, the dress at the top was very low cut. The top of the dress also felt large and it kept coming off of my shoulders. I ended up wearing a nude camisole underneath because the top of the dress exposed a lot of cleavage. If I were had a long torso I would have been fine as it would have taken up the extra inch of dress at the top.

LOVED THIS DRESS!
I wore this dress Easter Sunday and I am normally a size 12 due to my chest but I wore the 14 because a 12 would have been a little tight. The dress is beautifully made and I received so many compliments. I paired it with a nude, suede tie around the ankle heel.

Gorgeous lace detailing and color. I wore this dress for a special worship service
I'm 5'4" 36D and 179lbs. Loved the dress! It is very well-made, but the top was loose even though I have a big chest. Would suggest getting assistance to strategically pin for a better fit. Otherwise overall experience was phenomenal!

Swoon worthy details and a perfectly tailored fit make this dress a MUST RENT!
I wore this dress to a red carpet event and truly felt stellar. The lace detailing on this dress is so beautiful and elegant. The only thing to be aware of is that the cut is super specific. If you have a small chest and larger hips I would suggest sizing up and wearing a padded bra. The top is much larger than the bottom half of the dress --- which has no give at all. However, with the right size and undergarments you will undoubtedly feel like the movie star that you are!

The fun friends, good dance music and delicious food.
The photo does not adequately showcase this dress- bad angle and light. The neckline was beautiful and was a little sexy due to a low cut bust and my push up bra. I have wide swimmer's shoulders for my size and the sleeves occasionally slipped down. Also fit snug on my rib cage but I liked the fit. Also it was a little longer than preferred but I am short. This is a beautiful dress and made well.

I've never gotten so many compliments!!
I'm large through the hips and small on top so this fit snugly on bottom and loose through the arms and bust. When I first tried it on I didn't think I'd be able to wear it which broke my heart because the dress is incredibly stunning in person, no picture can do it justice. Luckily with the help of an uber push up bra I was able to make it work. The lace on the arms was still very loose but overall it was still the best option I had. I actually had to get 2 new options overnighted to me but those didn't work so I went back to this, my original first choice. The stylists were so helpful and I loved wearing this. People stopped me all night to tell me how much they loved the dress and I felt like a princess in it!

Beautiful dress, but not made for petites :(
I received this dress as an alternative option after there was a problem with my original order. Dress is gorgeous! So well made. Unfortunately, it is made for a taller woman. The fit in the waist and hips was true to size, but the top was large. Sleeves kept falling off my shoulders. I had to keep shoulders up to take this pic. And length was a little longer on me than I think it's meant to be. Material is also heavier than it looks. Lace looks dainty and fragile, but definitely not which I think is a good thing. So wish I could wear it. Just beautiful!

Pastel Lace for Easter.
This dress runs large. I wore a 6 and normally wear an 8. It was a great length, to my knees, which is rare as I am over 5'10". The colors were so elegantly beautiful. I was a greeter at Church for Easter and I think I received over 500 compliments between 3 services. I own nothing like this in my wardrobe, so it was the perfect addition for this special holiday. Thanks RTR

Beautiful Dress! The lace is absolutely amazing. Perfect feminine dress for a Bridesmaids luncheon!
Pictures do not do justice to this beautiful dress, the lace, details and colors are so soft and pretty. I had people compliment me, literally, all day!! I ordered the 4, and 6 as a backup, I could have actually sized down into a 2, I was afraid the lace would not be forgiving, but I felt it ran a touch big, and the 4 ended up being great for a luncheon, sitting and eating. If you will be standing I recommend sizing down. The lace cap sleeves were a bit loose and kept sliding down, and it is much lower cut, than it appears on the model. I wore a heavy padded bra, and just went with it!! Overall, this dress was stunning, very memorable, worth the rental for a special event.

Gorgeous dress & amazing customer service!
I wore this dress for my senior nursing banquet. The dress was exquisite and no picture can do it justice. The lacy fabric is iridescent and it comes alive in the sunlight. I am 5'7" with a 34D chest and the size 6 fit like a glove! The only complaint I have is that the zipper is very hard to get past the waistline. I managed vwith the size 6, but ended up having to break the zipper on the size 8 due to it becoming stuck halfway up. RTR customer service was absolutely wonderful and very prompt with their response concerning the zipper. Overall, a beautiful dress that I had a very hard time sending back. I had a great first experience with RTR and I certainly plan on using the service again! I would give 6 stars if I could

Loved this dress! So feminine!
Wore this for my bridesmaid luncheon. The lace and color was as expected from the pictures - beautiful! Marchesa tends to fit large for size. I usually wear a 2, but wore this one in 0 and it was still loose throughout and especially in the shoulders. I was so excited to get this dress and was very pleased with it!

Beautiful dress.
This dress is tight in the waist (and spanx did nothing to help!)! And difficult to zip right at the waist. All other areas fit pretty true to size. I actually could've probably fit into the 4 had it not been for the extra slim waist. I didn't order up as a back up but I'm certain the 8 would've been too big in other areas. A couple of times the sleeves slipped off my shoulders but it wasn't anything persistent enough to annoy me. The cleavage wasn't too revealing at all on me (a concern I had following other reviews). I wore this for my son's 1st Communion and it was perfect for the occasion. I received several compliments. The quality of the lace was exquisite. Overall a beautiful dress.

Perfect for my spring engagement party!
Gorgeous dress! Much more pastel green and purple than it appears in the picture. Runs slightly larger than my typical street size. I usually wear an 8, but ended up wearing the 6. A small amount of stretch/give in the dress but not too much. It actually looked like it would be more stiff than it actually was. I felt gorgeous in the dress and would highly recommend, especially for any kind of spring event!

Classy unique dress! Received so many compliments!
Such a beautiful dress! I wore this to my daughters first communion and I'm so glad it fit! I'm usually between a 4 and 6. I'm 5'8 with Big boobs/small back tiny waist and wide hips. I loved that it was sexy but classy sexy. The 4 fit me perfect but when I tried it on, the zipper broke when taking it off. I was skeptical about trying on the 6, but I'm glad I did. The waist was a bit baggy and shoulders were a big, but nothing noticeable at all. And I was still comfortable. This is such a beautiful dress. It's like wearing art! I'm giving it 4 stars because of zipper and shoulder width, but would definitely rent again.

I felt so put together wearing this dress!
I combined this dress with Anton Heunis's "Soft Teardrop Earrings" and Cara Accessories' "Dress Me Up Bracelet". I wore blue satin shoes, but neutral or taupe shoes would be good , too, because there is beige and blue in the dress. The sleeves fall down, so, as not to damage the dress, I would recommend using a safety pin on the interior lining and put your bra strap and/or slip in the safety pin to hold the sleeves up. I loved where the dress hit me, right below the knees. This dress was a dream to wear at an afternoon spring wedding!

Lovely Spring Lace Colors
I really wanted this dress to work out. It was my initial rent, rented a backup style JIC. This dress would be prefect for a spring time event / Easter. I found the dress to be a little to pale in color for me and the particular occasion. The green and purple are subtle, if you're tan - you're in business. Fit wise ( tried on size 6): the shoulders are large. I'm guessing the arms are made to be loose as I have a swimmers build and usually have trouble with tight sleeves/ anything lace on the arms. These sleeves didn't even hug my arms- not that it was a bad thing, it was just unexpected so be prepared. The neck line is low, but not too revealing. Fit through the bust line was comfortable and you can wear a regular bra. The waist fit perfect. The legs had room to move and walk comfortably. Be ready for the zipper to be tricky over the seams, with the lace it does stick a little. It's a beautiful dress, it just didn't work for my occasion.

Classy but gorgeous for our couples shower!
This dress is stunning. I got compliments all day long and some of my family even reached out after leaving to say how much they loved the dress. I felt amazing and confident for our his and hers shower! It's definitely suited well for those with defined waists. There's a decent give in the fabric everywhere but in the waist ribbon. I ended up sizing down since there's a little extra fabric in the chest area. Since mine chest is not so large and my waist fit the size down, it was an easy choice. I'd recommend sizing down though if you're not well endowed. The only one minor issue was that the fabric gets caught in the zipper pretty much any time you take it on or off. Took all of my maids to get me in and out of it. BUT totally worth it. This may be my favorite RTR yet!

Perfect dress for an evening Spring wedding
Loved this dress once I got it on. So many compliments!! A couple of things to keep mind. I had to go up a size for it to fit my chest and even at that...there was substantial cleavage. Also, used double stick fabric tape to keep the sleeves on my shoulder. The zipper was almost impossible to zip (not because of the fit.). We had to used a bar of soap to get it to move at all

Everyone loved this dress!
Tons of compliments and perfect for a spring or summer wedding. The lace is more of a crocheted look and feel, not flat lace. I wore it with a strapless bra, neutral patent heels and jewelry from RTR with the pink DVF clutch. I love this dress. One problem was that in the back the under slip kept showing which I had to keep fixing but other than that it was a perfect choice.

Beautiful fabric & lace; top runs big
I wore this for my rehearsal dinner. As many of the other reviews said, the top definitely runs big/is made for someone with a bigger chest. The 4 fit perfectly from the waist down but the top (mainly the lace) was pretty loose. I was able to hold it down with some double sided tape and all was well. The pictures do not do the fabric and lace justice-it was an absolutely beautiful dress!

For well through hips- I am a busty girl and it was a little loose up top. Occasionally the shoulders slipped off but nothing unmanageable!

First time using RTR-thrilled with the service and the dress! Perfect for the wedding!
The dress was more beautiful in person than in the photos because it has intricate details. Beautiful colors too. I heard so many compliments on it! It was very comfortable to wear sitting or standing, but when I was dancing the shoulders kept slipping down ( I am a crazy dancer though!) plus I'm broad shouldered with narrower hips and it was a little loose on the bottom half on me (common issue I have) so I think I possibly could have worn the 6?? Others mentioned that it's low cut but I wore a normal low-cut bra and did not feel over exposed at all. I loved the dress!

Just like the other reviews, shoulders slip down, great fit everywhere. Ribbon on the waist doesn't have much give and the zipper is on its last legs. But it's a gorgeous dress so you make it work:)! I received sooooooo many compliments on this dress!

Dress photographed beautifully and was stunning, but also wedding appropriate.
Definitely more fitted through the waist and hips. The bodice had more room, though I also only wear an A cup, so that is probably part of it. I also liked that the sleeves weren't too tight, as I have an athletic build and muscle in my shoulders. I got tons of compliments on this dress. It was fitted and beautiful, but also wedding appropriate.

Fit was as described. A little large on top, especially in the shoulders, but fitted on bottom. I have smaller shoulders, so a little well- placed wardrobe tape was necessary. Loved the dress, didn't want to send it back!

Gorgeous dress for the right body type
I wore this dress for a rehearsal dinner. The dress is absolutely gorgeous. It has beautiful pastel tones and is perfect for any Spring or Summer event. The dress runs TTS, but it should really be worn by someone that has a defined waistline. I have a boxy, straight figure, so although the 10 fit me, the upper portion was a tad loose, the sleeves were slipping down, and the waist was a bit snug.

Simply elegant.
Overall fit was true to size. Sleeves were slightly loose. I agree with other reviews that it may be unforgiving around the tummy area. I received multiple compliments from strangers, two of which stopped me to take a picture. Very well made.
