Felt like I was wearing a rose garden

One of the most intricately beautiful pieces I've ever worn. "Is that a Marchesa??" I was asked by folks in the know. It ran a size small (I usually order a 2), though I was able to wear an actual bra under it which was nice. Was it the easiest thing to wear while breaking it down on the dance floor? Maybe not... but I adored this stunning piece of art and it'll be bittersweet to return it

Stunner

The dress is beautifully made. It felt rich :). It looks red in photos but has a softer pink rosey under tone. The only compliant was that the sleeves were TIGHTER then I would have liked other than that it was dreamy.

Best RTR yet!

I LOVED this dress. It is the most beautiful dress I have ever worn - EVER. I didn't find it too tight in the arms like other reviews. It was snug, but I think this was necessary for the dress to lay properly. I carry my weight in my hips but I did not have a problem with this dress. I was able to wear this to see great people get married at a ranch in Aspen. I wish I had more events to wear this awesome of a dress! Rent it!

Dream dress

This dress was a total dream. It fit beautifully (despite my pear shape) and was absolutely perfect for formal summer wedding. I found the arm bands to be uncomfortably tight like some other reviewers but just tucked them in and think it worked fine (with no weird bulges). I skipped a bra due to the mesh/lace in the back and was perfectly comfortable. I strongly considered keeping this amazing dress but just couldn't think of enough occasions to wear it. Painful to send back!

The most gorgeous dress

I got complements all night in this dress. It's incredibly beautiful. The arms are super tight which was annoying. If it wasn't so beautiful, I would've been itching to take it off but overall I loved this dress

Elegance and fun

I fit the 14, when I am normally a 12. It does fit comfortably, versus the 12, which would have been more tightly zipped in. This dress is amazing to wear. It worked perfectly for my fancy middle eastern wedding. Highly recommend!

Just WOW!

This dress was just WOW! The arms are a tad snug. The 4 fit, but because of the arms I went with the 6. Otherwise, PERFECTION! I didn't need a bra and that was wonderful. And I got so many compliments throughout the evening. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Beautiful dress, waist and hips too large.

This dress is gorgeous, probably too loud of a pattern I would wear to a wedding but great for another formal event. I did not wear it as it was too large. I ordered a 2 because I am 34" bust and 0 is often too tight on my chest. This dress was big all over especially in the hips. I am 34-25-35.5, the 0 was unavailable and even if I ordered a 0 I still feel like it would not fit right. Not for me but beautiful dress!

Compliments all night

I've used rent the runway for all of my events for the past 5 years, and this was one of my favorites I've ever rented. Is even more beautiful in person than photos. I got compliments all night from people I didn't know. Numerous people told me I should buy the dress after I told them I rented it. Was true to size (I usually get size 2 with 4 as my backup size and I wore the 2). Highly recommend!

So many compliments

Beautiful dress. I am 5'8" with small chest and big butt. I am usually an 8. I was nervous about this dress not having any stretch, but it wasn't a problem! The cut was more forgiving than it looks. Size 8 looked best and was comfortable enough for a short event, but 10 was much easier to wear, esp to raise and lower at bathroom breaks or to sit in low seats or climb onto high ones. A little itchy after a few hours.

Vibrant colors and amazing fit

The fit was super flattering & the quality of this dress was very evident. I would say the arms are very fitted, almost tight so be aware of this. The red is more of an orange red than blue red. I felt great in this and hope you would as well! I wore it with red platform sandals & they upped the fun factor of the outfit even more!

Incredible dress

I am 5'6", 155 lbs, 36DD. I usually wear a 10 but I was afraid it would be too small so I rented the 12. The dress fit very comfortably, a little loose in the top section with extra material bunching in the armpits (but with the detail of this dress it was not even noticeable). I wore a push-up bra with a strap back so it wouldn't be seen as easily and that solved the loose top perfectly. This dress is amazing, so detailed and incredibly beautiful. I got compliments all night. I think it's probably the best dress I've ever worn second only to my wedding gown. This was my first rental ever and I'm happy it worked so well.

Detailed dress, total standout. I couldn't have bought a dress in this league. Renting it was a win

It fit like a glove. I'm an 8 in most retail stores, 34c. I ordered the 8 with no backups avail. If I weighed one more lb, I probably couldn't have worn it. Zero give. And as a total space cadet move, I put my arms through the cold shoulders! It tuned out to be far more comfortable so I kept it. Ha! Loved this dress so much.

I rented this in two sizes. The zero is what I wore. There isn't any stretch so go for the smaller size if you are small like me.

"Hottest dress at the wedding..."

The lace detail and stitching is incredible! Tons of compliments! Bright, fun, comfortable, no accessories required. I'm super curvy, small waist, big hips, and the cut was very flattering. No issues with the arms being too tight, I could move freely. Highly recommend!

Perfect fit, gorgeous detailing.

Perfect fit, quality construction, zero problems with this lovely Marchesa gown. My friends couldn't get enough of me in this dress, they kept telling me I should buy it! I was concerned length would be an issue, because I'm short, but after the initial try-on all fears were allayed. It was absolutely perfect.

Tight Arms

The arms are extremely tight but the rest of the dress fits fine. The top isn't the most flattering, something weird with the boob area. But the arms are impossible to get on and once on they give me muffin top on my arm. My arms are toned and i generally dont have issues with getting things over my arms. Such a beautiful dress but its one of those times I say..thats why its on RTR....

Absolutely stunning dress - received compliments from complete strangers all night!

The dress runs a little small - I ordered the 4 and was unable to move my arms as the arm holes are very snug. The 6 fit perfectly and I was able to move. The fabric has no give but the detailing is stunningly beautiful. I loved the vibrant colors and detail.

Lots of color. Probably not for someone that wants to accentuate waist and minimize chest.

Lovely dress. Just too much going on for my body (size 10). Made my top and waist area seem much larger. Other reviews have loved it but not a good look on me.

What a beautiful dress! It made me feel very special all day and I received many compliments.

I had read other reviews saying the arms were tight, I found this to be true but tolerable. For a shorter woman, this dress hit me in all the right places. True to size and the very well made.

Too fancy

The dress is absolutely gorgeous and I planned to wear it to a wedding, but then decided not to because it was ultimately too fancy and I thought it would stand out too much. If I were to get married again or were a famed cellist or attending some highbrow embassy event I would definitely rent this again, but I would save it for the utmost formal events.
