Be a splash of red in a sea of black dresses

Fit was amazing, both the under layer and top lace, and the arm band had elastic so it fit nicely and not too tight. Since I wore it for a wedding, we danced a bunch....only problem was the top hook and eye kept coming undone when I was dancing. If I rented again, I would add a little pin for extra hold.

Runs a little big

Rented this dress for a holiday party. It is beautiful, but unfortunately for me, it's a little too big for me. I may still try to get away with it, as it is awfully pretty. I'm 5'4" and 119 pounds and ordered a 2R

Beautiful color but.....

Absolutely beautiful! Great colors. They was this beautiful vibrant purple that isn't shown in the pics. Was a tad surprised by the sleeves being elastic. Which for me personally made it look cheaper. But once on it was stunning. But when I turned around the back of the dress had extra material bunch around the place where the back is exposed. I had 2 sizes and thought ok I'll change the sizes and see if that helps. It didn't. So long story short didn't wear. But beautiful color.

Lots of compliments and fits like glove!

I wore this to an awards show and felt it was the perfect choice and it was a good length, even though I'm pretty petite (5'2")

Got so many compliments on this beauty!

Loved this dress! It was so fun and comfortable while still feeling conservative for a school fundraiser. I got so many compliments on it! The detail is beautiful. I'm 5'5, 120lb , 32dd and usually a 2 in dresses but the 0 fit perfect. Highly recommendB first time doing RTR and I absolutely loved it! Highly recommend for such a fun experience.

Stunning elegant dress.

Loved this beautiful dress which is even prettier than the pics. I have never worn a tea length to a formal affair before but I loved how comfortable I was in this.

So glam and unique!

I sized up to a 14 since I have a large bust and it was perfect. The color is vibrant and the dress is a showstopper!! I can't wait to wear it to the wedding! It's not super comfortable, but worth it for the gorgeous look. Excuse the mirror selfie!

Everyone loves this dress??

The reviews on this seem very positive. But I felt silly in it. Felt too young, and tight thru the chest...and I'm a b-c cup!

Hints of fuchsia with a popping red!

Loved this dress. Wore it to church for Easter and then to my family's house for dinner. I received so many compliments. The photos do not do the dress justice. The hint of pink in this garment really brought it to life for me. If I was a repeat wearer, I would rent again. Absolutely recommend! I have no idea how I'll top this for my next rental.

Absolute fave!

This dress was just stunning! I ordered both a 0 and 2 and ended up wearing the 0. The 2 definitely had more room in the waist/tummy area but the 0 looked like it fit better once on. I rented 4 other dresses and this one was by far my favorite!

Great color

This dress is an amazing color and is very comfortable. I rented this for an outdoor wedding with a black tie dress code and it fit the bill perfectly. You could easily make this even more formal with black heels and sleek jewelry but I went with gold block heels and statement earrings. It also travels well and doesn't get too wrinkly.

LOVED THIS DRESS! I got so many compliments on it all throughout the evening- the fabric is so high quality and just stunning. Fit very will and true to size- shorter on me since I am 6'0"

Unique and comfortable!

Wore to "Garden Formal" wedding. Fit great- awesome option for petites. The length was perfect for me being 5'0. Weather was around 70 degrees and could have felt a little warm if the temperature wouldn't have dropped.

Gorgeous lacy red dress!

I originally rented this dress as an option to wear to a Christmas Gala for my husband's work. I ended up wearing a different dress because I was worried this dress would be a little too dressy. I didn't want to waste this gorgeous, luxurious Marchesa dress, however, so I wore it to a Christmas Eve church service. The quality of this dress is superb, the colors rich, and the shape was flattering. There is absolutely NO give to this dress, though, and it does run small. I typically wear a size 8-10 and the 12R was a bit snug around my waist but a little too big in the top and arms.

Gorgeous tea length dress with great details

Enjoyed this dress. It was so intricate but easy to wear. The dress didn't have much of a stretch and was a little in the small side, so if you're a between size I would go for the larger size. One thing to note is the dress has a tan lining underneath everywhere except the shoulders so make sure to have a neutral or strapless bra ready.

Pretty dress, super unflattering on my body type

I rented this as an option to wear to a wedding, it looked terrible on me. I think this dress is suited for someone with curves/hips. Other than that the dress looked good, it just wasn't right for my body type (as you can see from the picture).

Gorgeous dress, odd fit

Oh, I wanted to love this dress. It's stunning. The embroidery is so beautiful, and the shade of red is lovely. It just didn't work for my body. The nude lining also makes it a little sexier than would have been appropriate for my event.

Not the WOW factor I hoped it would be.

It's a pretty dress, and fit well, but I was underwhelmed. I looks great in the RTR pictures, and it just didn't do anything for me. I was really excited to try this dress, and wanted to love it; I just didn't.

Beautiful but very tight across tummy which made it look way less fab on me than on the model. I would recommend sizing up one size.

Show Stopper

Amazing dress! This was a backup after the original dress I ordered for my event was unavailable. I wore this to a formal winter/Christmastime wedding and received so many compliments. The dress was form fitting, yet not too much so that spanx were needed. Perfect for busty ladies. Will definitely rent again!

Simply STUNNING!!

I LOVE this dress!! I received compliments all night. The pink stitching detailing really pops, so the dress is much more vibrant than shown online. It’s sweet yet sexy and photographs beautifully. The only complaint is that the arm holders/sleeves were a bit bothersome- the actual sleeves were cut a bit high and irritated my upper arm throughout the night, but the arm holders are elastic. The upper back fabric also bunched/gaped a little, and the top clasp came undone a few times but this can be easily fixed. RENT THIS DRESS if you’re even considering it!! I sized up my RTR/jean size just to make sure I didn’t need to return it and it fit perfectly, so it runs a little small!

Stunning, show-stopping, whimsical dress!

I loved this dress - the red was a standout color to wear to a formal wedding. It was classy, I liked that the length hit against the shins. I got a ton of compliments all night - comfortable and fun to wear and dance in. Felt very romantic, almost Shakespearean type gown. Was sad to send it back!

Beautiful dress! Very vibrant and definitely different! Lots of compliments.

No cons for me. It hit at the ankle for my 5’2 frame. Great shape for hour glass figures. Ran true to size. The little claps on the back kept coming undone but that’s about it. Great dress if you wanna stand out!
