This dress was magical
Do you know how in the movies someone comes into a room and all heads turn? That was how it was with this dress. The color was amazing, red with just a touch of pink. It fit like a glove, and was so comfortable. The pockets were a fantastic surprise. The way it moved when I walked was absolutely stunning. I got complements all night, from everyone.

Statement dress
I loved the color of this dress and the luxurious fabric. Received countless compliments on how beautiful this dress was throughout the evening. It was snug through the waist area as I usually have more room in a size 6.

Loved the beading detail
I rented this for my sister for our parents' Ruby Wedding Anniversary Party/Vow Renewal. My sisters and I were required to wear red so I got her this dress and I wore the red Badgley Mischka Cascade Gown. This dress was perfect for my sister who has a more youthful style than me and also does not like strapless dresses or anything form-fitting around the hips/knees. It went with her personality and looked beautiful. She and I are about the same size and height, but she is smaller in the bust area and noted that it was snug around the chest. The length was perfect with three inch heels.

Wore this for my work's 50th Anniversary Gala
Loved the fit, pop of color and was perfect for the occasion. Length dragged just a tad on bottom, but probably because I didn't wear high enough heels to avoid it. I am petite but ordered the 4R and it was perfect.

I loved this dress. RTR customer service was exceptional, they stayed with me the whole process.
I rented two dresses one in size 6 and 8 (black and white) and one in size 6 (the marchese notte dress here). When the dresses came I didn't like the black and white dress but I loved the marchese but it was too tight so RTR shipped me overnight the size 8. When the dress came I absolutely loved it and felt like the belle of the ball and my Annual black tie Oscar Party. Thank you Michele C. for your excellent service!

French Embassy Gala
I'm so in love with the dress. It was perfect for a holiday ball at the French embassy. Fit was true to size for me. This dress made me feel like a princess! And it has pockets which is fantastic. I loved it because it was comfortable enough to move around and dance in, but still looked very classy and fabulous.

Little tight on the girls
This dress is lovely, but if you have a chest that is bigger than a C, it smooshes the girls a bit too much, creating an "off' silhouette.

Beautiful and flattering
Fits true to size. The long worked well for me. Most fitted through the waist and bust and then flowy over the lower stomach, hips, and thighs. The color in a showstopper. The netting and detail on the top was comfortable and not too tight. Loved all of it!

I cannot say enough about this dress. I felt like a star all night long at a NYE wedding.
Fits true to size. Flattering to my hourglass figure, accentuating my leaner upper body and flattering my lower problem areas. The button on the back did come undone repeatedly throughout the night. I loved having the pockets and the dress was comfortable for dancing and mingling. I spent the whole nights receiving compliments.

Wow factor
I rented this dress for my husband's company party which I have been attending for 11 years. Every year I feel pressure to get something more beautiful than the year prior, and this year I did not fail! I rented this in the 4L and 6L and ended up wearing the 4 because the skirt wasn't as big, but then had to go back to my room to put the 6 on after the cocktail hour because the netting on the 4 was cutting into me under the arms. These photos are of the 6L when I changed, you can see in the selfie one how I had more room, but it didn't feel like it would fall off because the netting... so its a strapless dress without the frustration. So comfortable in the 6L, and LOVED the pockets! This was a favorite, I would rent again for a wedding or something formal.

Beautiful Christmas formal dress!
I loved this dress but at the last minute it wasn't available. I received the 8L as a backup but it was a tad large. The 6L would have been perfect. I am 5-9" & 135lbs 34B. I found the bust be a good fit but may be tight for a larger busted girl. The dress was beautiful, pockets are amazing and the back of the dress just swept the floor on me with 3.5" heels. You'd probably need to plan on being able to steam the wrinkles out of the material before wearing! Love the fit for an easy dress to have dinner in and not feel constricted!

Pretty red and gold
Got a lot of compliments. Comfy. Loved the pockets. After a size issue, I was shipped another size but the tulle was missing so the dress laid a little flat. Customer service was great but I had to wear anywhere as it was too late to trade out.

Couldn't have been any happier with this rental
This dress is gorgeous and made me feel like a million bucks. I wore this for a charity event in December and it was perfect. The 2R was a perfect fit. I'm 5'2" and the back of the dress just hit the floor with 2" heels. I think the 4 would have been too long. I received a million complements on the dress :-)

Loved!
Like other comments, needed to steam dress prior to wearing and some good adjustments w the tulle under the skirt. With a little attention, was perfect! Order size up if bigger busted! I'm a 32DDD and needed every bit of space in the size 6 dress! I bought a sticky bra to wear with and was perfect. Totally recommend!

Unique and fun
I liked the crystal embellishments around my neck and chest area. The gown has a princess-like feel to it, and the shorter front allows me to walk around with ease. The dress is quite fitted, so watch what you eat when you go out!

Perfect for a holiday formal!
The RTR team saved me after the dress I ordered months ago didn't fit. They overnights this gorgeous gown to me, and I felt regal wearing it all night long. It's surprisingly comfortable--the fabric is heavy and very forgiving. The neckline is flattering, and you don't have to wear a necklace, so that's a bonus. The fit was spot on!

Overall, the dress was true to size. It has pockets and flares/falls at the waist. I'm 5'7 and with heels I didn't have a problem with the regular length. I would totally wear this again and would recommend it.

Awesome dress!
I loved this dress! I rented this dress for my husband's work event and got so many compliments on it all night. It's fairly comfortable, although the mesh top felt a little bit scratchy on my skin. But it was overall really comfortable and has pockets. The dress was true to size for me. I'm a pear shape and have some trouble with dresses that are more fitted, but the fit and flare of this dress had lots of room in the hips while still being perfectly fitted at the top. I wore a strapless bra underneath, but I think you could get away with not wearing a bra at all. Would definitely rent this one again!

Broke the LBD habit and made a splash with this gorgeous beauty!
I rented this dress for a "black tie optional" wedding. Typically I opt for black dresses but this one was a show stopper--with pockets! In addition to photographing beautifully, the dress has a stunning structure and movement--especially on the dancefloor. Compliments on compliments all night long! I ordered both the 6L and the 8L; as a 34DD I typically have to go up a size on more form-fitting tops, and this fit perfectly. With a 4-in+ heel, the back side of the dress just skimmed the floor (I'm 5'8). A show stopper and stunner indeed -- my boyfriend LOVED that his girlfriend was the one to make a bright splash in the sea of black tuxes and dresses!

Cute but itchy :(
I was really glad that I only had to wear this dress for a couple of hours, as I found the sheer beadwork at the top to be pretty itchy. That said, it does have pockets!

This dress was absolutely gorgeous.
I loved the dress so much, I wish I could keep it forever! It did run a little big, but I wore it anyway. It was a backup for a dress that ran super small, so I felt I needed to order larger sizes, but Marchesa runs a little big I guess. I could have worn the 6L for sure. It requires a steam before wear as it wrinkles easily, but it doesn't matter because it's sooo beautiful. 5 stars!

Dream dress - so fun to twirl in!
This dress is hands-down worth E-V-E-R-Y dollar! Personally, I think Marchesa Nolte has some of the best dresses on RTR. Her designs are stunning, and you're sure to be a showstopper in her dresses! This one is no exception - the illusion neckline has delicate gold flowers that pair well with jewelry, the bodice is fit well (look ma, no bra!), and the skirt is full-bodied. I could have done the 6R since the back of the dress slightly dragged along the ground, but the brick-and-mortar location only had a 6L in this dress. It was still beautiful as it made a mini train. The fabric is quite thick and was wrinkly when I picked up the dress, but nothing that a quick steam couldn't fix - *TIP* Steam this dress from the INSIDE. It works much better for getting those tough deep-set wrinkles out! The dress also has deep pockets that will hold your phone and lipgloss without any revealing lumps. Overall, perfect dress for your special occasion!

Absolutely stunning! I wore it to a formal company Christmas Party and received so many compliments
The dress fit like a glove in all the right places. I am normally a 4/6R, so I ordered the 6, but I am busty (34DD), and it turns out an 8 would've been best. The top part of the dress is a mesh with sequins and pretty details. I went bra-less- there is plenty of support and the material is somewhat silky. The bust was a bit tight, but the midriff area was loose. All in all, its a stunning dress, perfect for my company's Annual Christmas party which is a formal affair. I received so many compliments on this dress. The front hem is shorter and longer in the back, almost like a train. I felt like a princess. I didn't want to take the dress off!

Stunning
This dress was beautiful however, it took me 3 attempts to rent it without damage (first time there was a hole in the base of the zipper, second time the tulle was detached from the skirt). I would recommend that to have the long portion of the dress hit the ground with heels on, order the long length (I'm 5'6 and this worked out well!). This dress has a heavier fabric than I would have thought, so it was a bit heavy for an August wedding. Perfect for fall or even an indoor winter event!

Regal!!
This dress was very comfy all night, it's a thick fabric which does wrinkle (as evidenced by my photo) after a long night of wear. The pockets are deep and very convenient. I received so many compliments all night! The only downside is I had a few scratches/ red marks where the sequins from the top of the dress' screen rubbed on my chest.

Wasn't worn, but the dress looked nice.
The dress was lovely, but unfortunately, too tight in the bust. So tight I couldn't get it zipped. I probably should have gone with the reviews and ordered the size up. Next time.

Everyone told me I was best dressed! A fun cut and color! The top is stunning!
I was able to wear this comfortably without a bra. The zipper was a challenge to do on your own as others have mentioned but not deal breaker. If you are tall, I definitely recommend getting the long. At 5'9 "I had just enough length to wear 3-inch heels.

Cute but not for me
I ordered this as a replacement for a dress I didn't 100% love. I thought it was a nice fit but after polling friends and my sixteen year old daughter and her friends, I decided to wear the original dress. The high school girls thought this was too prom like for someone's mama. The fit was fine. I originally had trouble zipping it by myself. Once I negotiated that, it fit like a glove. For reference, I wore a size 2 in a ML by Monique Lhullier dress.
