Great fit and comfortable

I ordered the 12 because many items are right around my arms, but this one had no issues. I could have sized down but I ran out of time. This dress is heavy but not cumbersome. The dress is well lined and no need for a bra. Great design and style. Would highly recommend this dress for any black tie event.

Full-On Glam

This is a great dress if you're looking to go full glam and aren't messing around. I felt very 30s in it, very sophisticated and chic. If you can go without a bra I recommend it but if not the go for a thin back-strap and you can even pin it behind the strap in the back. Dress does not stretch.

Gorgeous gown came NWT

Usually wear size 4-6 and originally rented a 6. The 6 was huggggge around the chest (I wear 34 C/D). I then rented a 2 and a 4 and decided to go with the 2. The 4 looked great but the 2 looked tailored. Please note that my waist is 25 inches which allows for the smaller size. Hourglass can size down but all other body shapes should get your true size. My measurements in this pic are 34-25-36 if that helps.

Perfect dress for a prohibition themed fundraiser.

Beautiful details, looks better in person than online! I would have preferred a Regular length but the Long was ok with heels. Loved the dress overall.

Beautiful dress, very fitted

Gorgeous dress. Rented to possibly wear to a formal affair. Chose another option. Form fitting and a little hard to move in- easier to dance in other options. Very thick material, great for these cooler months. Length was good (I'm 5'10).

Absolutely Stunning!

The material quality was beautiful, and the shape was extremely flattering! I have a larger chest and was very comfortable without a bra. The dress shows off your waist beautifully and hides flaws! The open back was such a great sexy but classy detail. The long length was perfect with 4 inch heels.

While the back of the dress is gorgeous, the front is very matronly. Heavy too.

Stunning dress I could never afford

From the moment I saw this dress online I was in love. And it did not disappoint. The dress arrived a couple of days early which was great because it gave me total peace of mind! I loved the option of having a back-up size because I almost ordered the 2R after reading the reviews! The 4R fit me perfectly! To make it even better, the back is stunning and I was concerned the bra would show but they way the dress fits and since the material is heavy, no bra required! Definitely made a statement and the dress received the compliments to prove it! Can't wait to order my next dress!

Perfect dress for a Victorian themed evening!

I am 5'3", 134 lbs, and 34C. The 4R fit like a glove. It was a little long but I wore high heels and the length was perfect. I did use a adhesive strapless, backless bra, but probably would have been okay without it. The material is thick and the slit up the back made it easy to walk in.

I got so many compliments when I wore this dress. The colors and lace are gorgeous. I'm curvy so it was snug but really accented my curves. The back was beautiful!

This dress is nice. All lace and embroidery which I love. The dress fit large all over on me. I am a size 0 and it was still too big. I wore it anyways and still received complements all day.

Not wearing dress, unfortunately

This dress is really tight around the ribs and has an umpire waist style fit. It was NOT flattering on me. Additionally, the dress has almost neon blue netting on it, which I didn't notice in the photos or I wouldn't have rented it. I thought it was black and white. Not true. Now off to find something else to wear in less than a week. It shipped early which is probably the only nice thing I've experienced on my first RTR try. If you are 5'5" or above definitely go with the long if you will have any heel on your feet.

Beautiful lace dress that creates a great silhouette for your body.

I rented this dress for a friend's engagement party. The material is thick enough that you do not have to wear a bra, since your back is open. I wore a 12R, but I could have worn the 10R (just depends on how form fitting you want it). This dress was easy to dance in and was very comfortable. I wore black pumps and minimal jewelry. The dress can snag a bit because it's lace, but it only happened twice with me. I absolutely loved this dress and felt so beautiful and classy while wearing it.

Beautiful and comfortable

This dress got so many compliments! It was very beautiful and comfortable, I thought it might be a little heavy or itchy but it was neither. Fit was good, could have worn a size smaller for a more form fitting look at 5'6 125lbs. I would rent this dress again for a formal affair!

Unique but classic

Length was great for a small 1" heel, and didn't need much jewelry. It stood out in many strapless gowns, but was not a spectacle.

Harlem Nights Couture

I rented this dress for my Aunt's 50th that was Harlem Nights Themed. I received so many compliments on how i made the dress feel vintage and that i did 't go straight to a flapper dress. It fit me perfectly! I just wish i wore a bra because my boobs looked saggy, but other than that i loved it!!

The reaction! Everyone loved it!

I love love love this dress! It was beautifully designed with much more detail than any picture has shown. For those ladies that NEED to wear a bra this is the dress for you. My only draw back was sizing. I ordered a 0 but maybe should've gotten a 00. It was loose around the shoulders and I had to pin my waistline. Nonetheless I would not have traded it for another dress even if I had the option!

Beautiful!

I wore this to a Old Hollywood Glam awards banquet and it was a hit. I normally wear a 4, but only the 2L was available so it was a bit snug, but still workable. The back is very flattering and as a taller gal (5'9"), the 2L was the perfect length with heels. For the right event, I'd rent again.

Dress is really comfortable--almost like flexible armor.

The waist is fairly small--the dress overall was a little big on me, but not the waist. I have a pretty straight figure and this dress is made for people with hips. If I owned it, I could get it tailored a little, but it worked well as-is. I liked the cap sleeves and the strap in the back covered by bra strap at the right height. It was hard to see in RtR's images, but the color scheme is actually cream/black/navy with some green. It doesn't look plain black/cream in person.

Disappointed by this dress. Runs very small and the neckline wasn't as flattering as I thought it would be. Also seemed short, I am only 5'4 but would want to rent this in a long.

This was the only dress worn at the event

Barely any stretch The inner seam follows the outter seam therefore how you put the dress on impacts if any crinkles, random puffs in the dress as well as the length it is on the person.

RTR Stylist Review

I love this feminine dress by Marchesa Notte! Running true to size little stretch, I recommend wearing your true size for your primary size and sizing up for the back up. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and hips. It works for all cup sizes and works best with a no bra because of the detailed back. At 5'3', the length was just a little long on me. I love the back detail and silhouette of this dress! Pair with nude or black heels and earrings to complete your outfit!

I felt beautiful

This dress was a complete show stopper. All night long I received so many compliments about how great I looked and where did you get that dress? It was a great confidence booster. I did not wear a bra with it and I'm fairly busty on top. There was lining and I felt like I had enough support with the strap in the back. The dress was a little big on me in the hip area and just a tad too long, but it worked with my 3" heels. I would totally rent this dress again for a formal occasion.

Gorgeous dress with lots of details, not much give to dress but still comfortable and easy to dance

Back strap too tight for broad shoulders but was able to pin the strap back to make an open back and this worked

Didn't keep dress

I didn't even try this on as I didn't like the fabric at all. What I thought was more like ecru lace was string woven in a fishnet pattern - it almost looked like macrame rather than lace backing.

This dress is true to size and lovely for a formal event.

I made the mistake of ordering the Long since the Regular length was sold out and that did not work. I am 5’6” and it was about 4” too long. I ended up not wearing it. The chest is also pretty loose, I am a 36C and this dress did nothing for my chest, made me look pretty flat but it’s so busy I don’t think anyone would notice except for me & my hubs 😉

The dress stood our with the intricate pattern.

I got a size bigger than I normally wear was a little big in the top but it worked. The material and pattern are gorgeous! The material is a bit heavy but held everything in. It does have a pop of blue in the lace at the bottom of the dress. It was very pretty!
