I received so many compliments!

Beautiful beading on top with illusion neckline is stunning in person, pictures do not do it justice. The peplum makes this dress so flattering, and lower half of dress is very stretchy and form fitting.

Amazing dress

Everything about this dress is amazing - the detail, fabric and fit! As soon as I tried it on I fell in love with it! I received compliments all night. Very comfortable and true to size. I'm flat chested and found this dress flattering to my body type.

Beautiful details and Flattering

The fit was great I think I could have even worn a 10 but the 12 was super comfortable. I didn't have any trouble being a 36DDD WHICH WAS GREAT but having a smaller waste. A few of the beads were missing but nothing noticeable without thorough examination. The peplum looks great on my hourglass figure, it didn't overly expose my bigger chest and it looked classy and I looked sexy. I love the slit and the dress was such a comfortable material and stretchy. Apart from the struggle where the zipper goes from navy fabric to the beaded netting the dress was perfection!

Gorgeous dress! Perfect for black tie event

Gorgeous dress. I am 20 weeks pregnant and the stretchy fabric in the lower part of the dress meant I could fit my belly comfortably. Beading and sheer top is sexy without being too much. Got comments all night. Highly recommend for a black tie event!

Amazing dress!

This dress is stunning! I received so many compliments. I wore it to an Inaugural Ball. I'm 5'3 and the length was great. I was able to wear a kitten heel with this dress, but for another Marchesa dress I rented, I had to wear a 4" heel. So if you are shorter like myself, just be prepared to adjust your heel height accordingly or get hem tape. This dress was not as revealing as it may look. I wore a NuBra with this dress which you can find on Amazon. It was perfect. Take a chance on the dress. You won't regret it!

Fabulous and flattering!!!

Wow!! So comfortable and true to size. It flattered all of the right areas while making me feel confident about my curves and hiding the midsection. The detail and lace is stunning and I got a ton of compliments!! I danced for hours with no issues!! No bra is a fabulous way to go!

So comfortable and chic!

I actually received the dress as a back up for my original dress which had complications in sending. After receiving so many compliments throughout the night and loving the dress, I couldn't imagine wearing the other original choice. I loved the fit of the gown and the amount of sparkle. It was a very comfortable fit and you don't have to shave your armpits! I definitely recommend this dress and rent the runway it was a great process !

Beading unraveling in back area. I ordered new dress in same size. Hope beading issue is solved on new dress or I might not be able to wear.

CHIC AND FLATTERING

The dress does not have hanger appeal but it is a dream when you put it on. It's flattering flawless and chic. It was perfect for my sisters wedding. The 8 fit fine but the 10 was just more comfy. Normally I am between an 8-10

You MUST rent this dress. Fit perfectly and the length was just right. Very slimming as well. Beading detail was amazing. Best dress I've ever rented, bar none.

I am normally a 6, wore the 4R and it was perfect. The dress was comfortable and had so much give, so I had good range of movement. Perfect wedding dress for a black tie or formal event.

Didn't want to take it off!

This was my first RTR experience and it was fantastic. I'm 6'1", so I was wary about finding a black tie gown that would be long enough. I got a 12L and it fit great. I'm 170lbs, average athletic build. With heels on, it hit just above the floor. The slit on the left added some romance to the dress. I got compliments all night and felt like a million bucks. Photos don't do it justice. I have small boobs, so it was easy to go braless. The material/lining/beading in the front is thick enough where you don't necessarily need a sticky/backless bra. Overall fantastic dress!

Great dress but delicate

The original dress I received had a damaged neckline that had been repaired and looked crooked - not surprising because the material is very delicate. I promptly received a new dress in the same size and I'm so glad because it looks amazing. Perfect black tie dress, no need for anything but simple jewelry and a cute shoe - the slit shows off your shoe perfectly. Loved it.

It was elegant yet sexy with low cut cleavage. I am 5'1" and with heels the dress fit perfectly but one 1" either way, it would have dragged on floor.

It's effortlessy worn. Didn't need any help with tucking in the lumps. It's so comfortable.

The fit is perfect. It was a bit longer for me but with 3 inches hills I did just fine.

Mediocre fit on me

According to some reviews this dress ran large so I ordered an 8L (normally a 10) to try on for a future formal event. The top portion is beautiful however the peplum bottom was kind of swallowed up by any background. If that makes sense. Still a lovely dress

Pretty but mature

The details on this dress is gorgeous! It hugs curves and is even forgiving in the tummy area. At 5'8" the 10R was about ankle length and the zipper was really tough to pull up. It did also have a much more marure feel than what i was looking for. Pretty dress but not for me.

Stunning! Everyone had something to say :)

Ordered the 2R and 0P and wore the 0P because it was just the right length with heels and had a nice snug fit. The 2R felt a little lose. I usually wear a 2 or 4 in bottoms but in dresses I'm usually a size smaller.

Best, most flattering dress EVER!!!

This dress was PHENOMENAL! I felt like a million bucks all night long. So comfy, classy, and great coverage too. Absolutely would recommend this dress to anyone! I'm not super tall but I ordered the long so I could wear heels (apprx. 3 inches) and with my shoes, the dress was the perfect length and just brushed the floor. Wasn't sure if I'd be a 6 or a 4 so got both and quite honestly, they both fit, but I wore the 6 just because it felt comfier and had more wiggle room. Seriously LOVED this dress!!!!!

Classy and sexy!

This dress was a show stopper! So many compliments and it was very comfortable! The bottom material has a lot of give which is helpful for sitting and dancing. The embellishment at the top was beautiful and just enough cleavage. You don't need to accessorize much the dress pretty much works on its own!

Not for petite

I'm 5'3, 110-112 lbs, 34C/D and ordered the size 0 and it fit well in the hips but was actually too large in the chest area. Additionally, it was way too long. I would have had to wear 4 1/2-5 inch heels to manage the length. This dress is all about the proportions, and I think it would be pretty difficult to meet those to make it a great fit. The lace and intricate design were beautiful and the skirt material was very high quality. However, I wouldn't order this unless you have a chance to try on beforehand and have time before your event to exchange if needed.

Beautiful and very elegant dress

The fabric and design of the dress is very elegant and classy, received many compliments. I'm 5'4" and the regular length was perfect using heels. My waist is around 27-28 inches and size 6 was a bit loose, a size 4R would have fitted much better. Because of the cleavage I had to wear self additive bra cups that I bought here at RTR, nothing uncomfortable. The opening in the bottom side is gorgeous and is not very revealing (it goes up to the knee). Very recommended.

I wore this to a black tie wedding in NYC, it was absolutely the perfect dress for the occasion!!!

I usually wear a 2 or a 4 pending the designer, but the zero happened to fit perfectly. The dress is so stunning in person, very flattering and extremely comfortable. I received compliments all night. I can't recommend renting this dress enough! I will definitely wear this designer again.

GWU Inaugural Ball 2017.

This dress is a miracle worker. I'm normally a size 8 or 10, but I listened to the reviews and ordered a 4R with a backup 6R. The 4R fit moderately well, but the 6R was absolutely perfect. It hid my midsection, which I appreciated, and didn't draw too much attention to my thighs either. I also have a large chest (36DD), and the bejeweled panel did an excellent job of keeping everything tight and in place. I loved this dress so much! A real knockout for any occasion, and pretty comfortable to dance in, as well.

I felt amazing in this dress! Would totally wear it over and over!

The darker fabric is slightly stretchy, so there's a little give in the hips. A little fraying at the neckline, but it wasn't super noticeable.

This dress is a winner!!

Such a beautiful gown! I received so many compliments. The fit and material is very flattering as well as comfortable. I am usually a 4L but the 2L fit much better since I have a smaller chest. The beading is beautiful and the peplum gives a lovely silhouette. I would definitely recommend!

STYLIST REVIEW

YES TO THE RUFFLED SPLIT! This dress is as gorgeous as it looks. It's so elegant and beautiful and literally makes you feel good all over. It runs very true to size, but go one size up for back up. It is great for any bust size and has comfortable room at the bust and throughout the midsection. Definitely wear a strapless bra since the lace is so detailed up top. The fabric does have some stretch, however you can wear spanx to make bring it all in. Must rent this dress.

Wore with 3.5 in heels (I'm 5'1"). It just skimmed the floor. The dress was slightly loose (I usually wear a 2, but only ordered a 4), and it still looked beautiful!

Unable to wear to event :(

I LOVED this dress.. and I mean really LOVED this dress. However, I was unable to wear it for my event. It fit great everywhere.. except for the boobs. I am not sure how anyone over a C cup or without fake boobs could wear this dress. There is no molding in the cups.. just fabric. The mesh upper body makes is impossible to wear a strapless bra, low back plunging bra, you name it. I was super upset, because truly this dress is gorgeous.. just not for the DD natural boob girls!

Obscenely revealing

I am not a prude but this really was impossible. The front was open almost to my waist! Plus the ruffles made my hips larger than they already are, definitely not flattering. UGH. Glad I got a backup dress!
