Great for dancing all night at a fall wedding!
The dress was a bit tight (definitely needed my spanx!) but pretty close to true to size. I couldn't really lift my arms above a certain height because the sleeves didn't stretch but that wasn't a big deal to me. It was really comfortable too I danced all night and it was great. The embroidery is a bit itchy at first but not irritating and I got used to it in about 5 minutes. The details in the dress are really pretty and not captured fully in pictures, there are little sequins in some places in the dress so it sparkles a bit as you move and the flowers have different tones in them, really beautiful! And I got lots of compliments!

Every one thought it was fabulous!
A good fit . I am 5'9 and it's a tiny bit short waisted and if you are larger than 36d maybe snug in bust.

Dreamy in lace
I loved this dress- very feminine with the lace detail and shape. I felt comfortable through the night, I wore this to the nutcracker and then a formal family dinner after. Only con I suppose was that the top half was a little big as I am fairly flat chested! All in all lovely dress would totally wear it again

Gorgeous winter wedding at a museum!
This dress arrived with the original tags on it! It has beautiful embroidery and a bit of sparkle. The sleeves are sheer, but I was able to wear a black bra without having the straps show. If you have a large bust, this dress will expose cleavage, but not in a distasteful way. I was able to dance, but when I lifted my arms, the sleeves didn't have much stretch. All in all, would rent again.

Beautiful embroidery and bead work on this dress.
I wore this for Christmas. It was perfect. Dress has a nice nude lining. It feels good on except for the sequins on the sleeves are a little scratchy.

Beautiful Dress for a NYE Wedding!
I wore this dress for a wedding and it was beautiful! It was a little snug around the bust so I went with a bigger size. It was also a little difficult to raise my arms as the sleeves were tight.

didn't wear it
The fit was perfect but the fabric was too itchy around the lining of the armpits and the arms. Beautiful dress but the fabric killed me. Too bad it's on sale also on Bergdorf Goodman for $223 glad I rented it before I bought it.

Beautiful dress, not a fan of the cap sleeves
Insanely gorgeous dress (still had the tags on it too!) but unfortunately the cap sleeves poofed out way too much and made me look top heavy. Didn't end up wearing it.

Beautiful Embroidery!
I should have gone a size up, but they didn't have a 16 for the weekend I rented. It fit tight in the waist and bust, but too roomy in the shoulders. The dress photographs really well and is very pretty - don't know if I'll rent it again, the style wasn't quite right for me.

Sophisticated and elegant!
I wanted to find a classic dress that looked timeless but could also be appropriate for a 1920-1930s theme party This dress, based on the photos, was the look I was going for. I was not disappointed! The fabric and detail are exquisite. I loved the style of the embroidery and the colors were perfect for this mid-February party. I'm really glad I ordered two sizes. Normally I wear a 2 and assumed by the look of it that I would fit fine in that size. However, the chest and waist were definitely too tight. The size 4 allowed me to zip the zipper all the way and be able to breathe! I felt like the shoulders were a bit big on me but I am very narrow in that area so I don't blame the dress. If I owned it, I would have had it tailored. It really wasn't a big deal, though. I loved wearing this dress and felt very sophisticated.

Perfect Fit!
This dress fit like a glove! And the details! The delicate yet bold colorful lace and sheer panels on this dress make such a classic statement. I wore for a business dinner and it was a hit! Length was perfect as well and it's very comfortable. Built in bra cups so no worries there - it does have deep v in back as well. There is also a shimmery gold thread throughout the embroidery so I wore with pale gold accessories. Rent this for cocktail party or business event. So beautiful- it goes on my top ten list!

Lovely dress - not ideal for someone petite, but still received a lot of compliments
This dress is really beautiful. The details are stunning. I did not expect it to have the occasional sequins here and there, but they were not over the top. The dress was much longer than what I would usually wear, but it is really made for someone much taller than me (5'2"). I did receive a lot of compliments on the dress nonetheless. I found that it was a bit long in the torso so I was more comfortable putting a shrug on to be a bit more modest as I was worried that the shoulders could slip off. I felt it needed a strapless bra because I did not have anything with clear straps and with the mesh at the shoulders and sleeves I did not want even nude bra straps showing through. The dress is very fitted, but slimming in how it is cut. This was not the dress I initially planned to wear but I had an issue with my first choice, so I went with this one. Enjoyed getting to wear a Marchesa Notte and will probably try renting another after a positive rental experience with this one.

Showstopper dress for formal occasion
This dress fit really well and true to size. It has a double layer of sheer black with embroidered red flowers with gold metallic detailing. The lining is a soft poly, tan colored. I chose this to match my husband in the wedding party; he had a red lining to his suit jacket and the wedding colors were black and gold. I wore a strapless bra with this because the top part is fully sheer. You could possibly get away with wearing a black bra with straps with this. I have big arms so I was worried about the cap sleeves on this being tight. My concerns were misplaced as the sleeve has more of a "flared" fit. This dress was *slightly* big in the shoulders on me. My measurements are 35-27-36 and a 4 fit me perfectly. Some stretch to the fabric but don't hang your hat on that.

Gorgeous and Classy!
This dress was absolutely gorgeous! I wore it for the St. Jude's Gourmet Gala. I am so glad I decided to go with this dress rather then my other choice. The only thing that bugged me was the string in the inside that you can hang the dress by came out through the sleeves a couple times throughout the evening. But I would definitely wear it again .

Detailing was amazing!
I tend to wear between a 6 and an 8 in general, but the six was just too snug in this dress. Unfortunately, I have small shoulders so it was a bit loose in that area, though my large bust made sure nothing was falling off. I ended up just having to be very aware of the shoulders throughout the night and often took pictures with my hand on my hip to ensure that the top was gaping weird. I really, really recommend this dress. I got so many compliments and it really was stunning in person.

Great dress!
I loved this dress! I rented it for engagement photos in New Orleans. I ordered the 2 and 4 (as my backup). Ultimately, I went with the 2, which is my usual dress size. The colors were beautiful on camera. I loved the little pop sleeve. I received lots of compliments. I am 5"8 with long legs, and the dress hit right at my knee. Would rent again!

Mid-section horrorshow for ME . (Lol)
My problem area is my mid-section and this made me look 5 mos pregnant. It brings a lot of attention to your stomach. Epic fail for me. Couldn't step out the door. Probably better for a person with an hourglass figure. Lacey dress with a lot of detailing.

Love this dress!
The fit was great, very flattering and unique. The only con was that the lining was not connected to the top layer, and they became twisted throughout the night and need constant adjustment.

Tight and constricting.
BEAUTIFUL dress runs small and has no give. Cap sleeves are lovely, however constricting to the point of not being able to raise ones arms... to perhaps dance or fix makeup and hair during the evening. The fabric under the armpits so awful, tight and itchy! What little I could move my arms, made them scratch and itch against the sequins and lace under the arms. That was the deal breaker. The V neck is great for a larger chested women like me, however the waist, hips, and booty area tight and clingy. (I have a bit of a waist, but no booty at all, so being tight here was a surprise ) It was difficult to sit comfortably in my attempt to make it work. Knowing I'd be attending an outdoor Arizona wedding... tight, itchy, hot, and unable to move arms made this dress a big NOT gonna happen for me and I did not wear. What a disappointment.

Gorgeous detail; fit like a glove
I'm 5' 2" and between a pear and an hourglass. This fit like a glove. It was a bit longer than I'm used to, but not long enough to make me feel overwhelmed or shorter than I am. It felt super classy! The embroidery is gorgeous and the red and black complimented my coloring very well. Dark hair, fair Filipino skin. The sleeves did come up a bit, but not enough to be a bother. Great dress!

I haven't felt this great in anything since becoming a Mom!
The quality of this dress was amazing. The zipper is a little sticky due to the material and details of the dress but it wasn't too difficult to zip. I had two weddings in the same weekend and was very very close to wearing it two nights in a row! I felt elegant.

30th High School Reunion
This was my first experience renting a dress for an occasion. It was one less thing to worry about and so I had friends help me pick out a dress that this thought would look pretty on me. I was a little concerned with the size so I went up a size bigger because I heard the sizes are true and I wasn't sure if I was a size 8 or 10. You do not need a bra it is snug enough on top. The zipper was a little tricky. Comfortable around the knees to walk with room.

Not my first choice dress, but it turned out to be stunning!
I had some trouble getting my first choice dress even though I'd reserved it. Then the whole package arrived a day late. This was a backup dress, but it fit like a dream. I have a shorter waist, and the waist seam hit at just the right spot. There was enough room to move comfortably in the dress all night. I loved the hint of sparkle, and I got a lot of compliments. The cap sleeves were a little restrictive for serious dancing.

Would be gorgeous on a tall sophisticated woman
Stunning dress, but proportions weren't flattering for a petite person. Too long. I also felt like it would look right on someone in their 40s, 50s or older. Would be gorgeous on someone taller and older.
