It was beautiful and comfortable!
This dress was beautiful yet very comfortable. I am normally a size 12 but did rent a 14 because that was the size available at the time. It turned out that the 14 fit perfectly. I highly recommend this dress!

Beautiful, runs large
The details and color of this dress were phenomenal! Stunning in person. I ended up not wearing it because something about the color and lace made me feel that it had more of a holiday look than something appropriate for summer. Actually ran a little large... I'm usually between a 10 and 12 and I think I could have probably worn an 8.

Loved this dress—it's lightweight enough for a black-tie affair in the summer.
The dress fit true to size and is incredibly flattering for a petite frame. I'm super short, and it hit a little above the knee. Also, even though I have a larger chest, I didn't need to wear a bra (the straps would've shown through the mesh, and I didn't have a strapless on hand). Loved that I wasn't wearing the typical black long gown to my friend's black tie wedding.

Didn't end up wearing - True Hourglass figure should wear the downsize of what you typically wear
I am a 4/6 typically and needed the 4. It was an okay fit everywhere other than my waist. A 4 would have made it perfect

Loved this Marchesa dress! The fabric was durable, details are gorgeous, and it fit just right!
This was my first RTR experience and I couldn't be happier. It arrived on time and in great condition. I did choose a size up as my back-up size, but this was definitely true to size. The fabric ended up being thicker than I'd imagined, which was good because I never was scared of any accidental tears. I'm 5'2'' and the dress ended a bit above my knees. The color and details were striking. It definitely lived up to my expectations! I wore it to a wedding and it was easy to dance and move around in. No complaints! Would rent again!

Great Christmas dress
To be honest I was a bit nervous about this dress as I don't like my stomach & so was unsure of the sheer panel. I didn't need to be - it was very flattering & easy to wear. Bear in mind that it's a little sheer throughout so you can't wear black tights with it as you can see the waistband of the tights through the dress

Show stopper!!
I absolutely LOVED everything about this dress. I am larger chested so I sized up and it fit great. I was able to wear a regular nude bra without it being noticeable. I am 5'4" so the length was perfect for me so it might be short on someone with legs. The details on this dress are just gorgeous. I felt amazing in it.

Perfect in every way & so many compliments!
I rented a dress by the same designer from RTR for another event last year so I was pretty confident about the size, but I ordered an 8 just in case. I'm a 4/6 and the 6 fit perfectly and was true to size. Comfortable all around, even when sitting. I thought it might be itchy, but not at all! Felt like a princess and got so many compliments! Perfect for so many occasions. Would recommend to anyone!

Beautiful dress. True to size
Wore with nude strapless bra. Did not have any issues with the mid portion folding or bunching like I had read in some reviews. Was perfect color for a winter wedding. Got plenty of compliments. Details on the dress were very beautiful. Would rent again

So pretty with a hint of lace and sparkle...
I did not wear this, but tried it on. I think I could pull it off being 43, but it was almost "too young" looking for me. Otherwise, stunning dress.

Great, unique dress
The embroidery and lace on this dress is beautiful and gives it a formal look despite the simple silhouette. The mesh panel in the midriff gives it a nice bit of edgy style. Per some of the other reviews, it can fold over a bit weird, but I think it's one of those small things only you notice and not anyone else. It's practical - easy to move in, not too hot not too cold, not too much skin but still interesting, a nice pop of color. All in all a great pick. I also liked that it seems like it is not a super popular option - after trying on two other dresses with hundreds of reviews (this one only had like 5) - this dress was in much better condition and felt much more unique.

Comfortable, flirty and modest!
This dress was a backup dress selected by RTR when the size to my original selection was not available. IT's a beautiful color and feels extremely comfortable. Not itchy or heavy. I didn't wear it because I had another dress to select from, if not I certainly would have. It is not curve hugging, the nude part in the middle is not forgiving if your wear full body spanks, but overall a beautiful dress.

Beautiful dress but runs large!
Both dresses were brand new with tags still on them. Beautiful dress but definitely runs large. I'm typically an 8 and even the 6 was a little big on me in the waist area. Because the dress was a little big, the mesh panel would fold so I had to continuously adjust the dress to smoothen it out.

First time renter
This dress was perfection! The detailing and lace were so delicate and beautiful. I really wish I could keep this for forever. I wore this for an Army Ball(Ranger Ball) and I got a lot of compliments. I would definitely rent this dress again.

This dress was very fitted throughout the midsection and I would suggest going one size up from your original size. I am a size 2 and the size 4 fit me like a glove. You should consider doing a strapless or a nude bra. However, this dress is so pretty and I think it's perfect for a fall event. I will be renting this for my Christmas party!
