I got a ton of compliments in this dress!
Being a 36DDD, I was a little self conscious about the amount of cleavage I had on display. This probably would have been perfect for a C or D cup. However, I felt so secure in this dress that I didn't wear a strapless bra. I danced the entire night and never had to adjust! The inner lining of the skirt is made of a soft jersey that is ~ 6 inches shorter than the outer tulle layers, which is nice so you're both comfortable and don't have to worry about tripping over the skirt.

Comfortable and sparkly! Fun!
Fit well, seemed short. I had to wear flats because of the length and I am considered short. Very flows and fun. Was good for event

Fit great! I'm 5'2 about 105. I wore 3 inch heels. Everyone was so complimentary of the dress all night long. Loved it!

Spectacular Starry Night
I am a true size 2 and the 2R fit perfectly. My bust is a 34B so I could see someone with a larger chest having an issue. I didn't have to tug up the dress at all. I'm 5'8 and in my heels the dress just barely hit the floor, so I wasn't stepping all over myself. The dress was unique and a standout.

The dress is absolutely stunning!
The dress is absolutely beautiful! The only issue was that it was too long. I am 5'3 and wore 4 inch heels and my heels kept catching on the back of the dress. I had to hold the skirt up whenever I took a step or risk having my heal tear the delicate layers of the dress. But otherwise it was absolutely stunning.

Easy, breezy, beautiful!
This dress was a breeze to wear - long after I had abandoned my heels, I was still swishing and swirling in this dress! I didn't wear a bra or any shapewear. The bodice is boned so it stayed put all night and it cinched my waist just enough for a nice silhouette, but not so much to be uncomfortable. The layers of the skirt are light and airy and drape beautifully, absolutely hiding the fact that I wasn't wearing any shapewear. I love that the hem is just high enough in the front to showcase your shoes - I took a hint from the model and went with a delicate gold strappy heel. The embroidered details on the bodice are beautiful and the sequins add just the right amount of sparkle. The dress has a fun, feminine, fairy-like feel to it; elegant enough for a black tie event but I could also see wearing it barefoot on a beach. Most importantly, it was comfortable to wear all night long.

Metropolitan Magic!
I felt like a Barbie in this dreamy dress at the Opera! It's so subtly sparkly and so easy to wear. I never had to adjust it. I'm almost 5'9 and I wore 4in heels... the 8L just grazed the floor in the back. Divine! I do have a larger bust and narrow rib cage. I probably could have squeeeeeezed into a 6. The 10 definitely swallowed me. You will cry when you put this back in the bag!

Prom
Fit nicely and went with the theme, pretty long though and it snagged on my heels. It also bunched out my hips a bit but other than that an overall really beautiful dress.

A night full of swishing
This dress definitely made me feel like a dark Elsa. I loved the beautiful flowing feel the dress had, and for my first time wearing a strapless it wasn't that bad. The top part was a little too tight, which was kind of uncomfortable but did keep the dress up, and the length in the back was a little too long. I wish I would've ordered the 10 and 12 instead of 10 and 8 (I'm consistently size 10 in dresses, but I wonder if the top would've been more comfortable a size larger). The sparkles look silver in pictures but in reality they're more of a gold. Overall, it was a fun dress and I'm glad to have gotten a chance to wear it.

Fairy Princess Dress
I wore this as a maid of honor dress for my sister's wedding. It was beautiful and the detail at the top of the gown was gorgeous. It was a little tight just below my ribcage, but it looked beautiful and held my boobs in nicely, I don't even think I had to wear a bra. It was a little hot for an outdoor July wedding, but the bride my sister picked it and I happily obliged. I wish I got a better photo standing up. I usually don't wear long dresses because I think they make me look short (I'm 5'4), but the cut of this and the tool worked well. I work ombre pink/silver glitter pumps.

Fairytale magical
Rented this to wear to a Broadway show and felt completely almost absurdly magical walking through Times Square and into the theater. Was I among the most dressed up people there? Yes. Did I care? No. Random ushers were stopping me to say how beautiful it was. The bodice had a lightly boned corset that meant I didn't need to wear a bra. Skirt was fully lined. (My wife tried it on - she's 5'3" - and it wasn't too long, which was a little bit of a surprise. Also it looked beautiful and glamorous on her.) Definitely the kind of dress that made the whole RTR subscription feel like it was worth paying for.

Looks amazing in person!
Snug bust fit made me feel secure and not like my boobs were going to fall out, but I could see a problem zipping the dress up for bustier girls. Without shoes, it hit the ground for me and I got big heels, so It was lifted even more. The dress also goes up in the front to show off the feet so my dress looked even shorter on me. In all honesty though, nobody noticed because of the low lighting. This wasn't my first choice of a a dress because the pictures make it look weird, but in person it's pretty magical.

The pictures don't do this gown justice! Even more gorgeous in person!
I rented this gown for a black tie event in late January. The overall fit in the bodice of the gown was a tad large without a bra; I had to keep puling it up all night. In hindsight I should've ordered the 6L. The long length was perfect however! I am over 6 ft tall and the dress grazed the ground with 3 inch heels on. I was pleased with the easy returns and the option to have a backup size. Definitely would recommend this dress for a similar event.

I wept when I put this in the mail
This dress is just nothing short of incredible. I had been waiting for months for an event to wear this to and this gown did not disappoint. The varied length hem at the bottom made it so easy to walk and dance in and I imagine it's friendly for all heights. The bust fit me perfectly and I was fending off compliments all night. In person this dress is even more incredible. You will not regret this rental.

Belle du Soir - gorgeous
I rented the 8L based on others feedback and their reported bust size, and weight - I am 5'10". 154# and a 34DD and could not zip this so if you are at all busty size up! RTR was fantastic and overnighted a size 10L which fitted perfectly. Absolute showstopper of a gown.

It was a little large in the top but the next size down was too small.
The dress perfectly fit the theme of our party and I received numerous compliments throughout the night. The fit was good overall, it was a little big in the chest area but the next size down was too tight. From the picture I had thought the sequins were silver, but they are actually gold. I am short (5'1") but with heels the dress fell to a decent length to not be too long.

Loved it!
Bra size is 34DDD and I usually wear a 10, went up a size to a 12 in this dress and it fit perfectly. Hated the double zipper but in the end it turned out to be an amazing gown. Received a ton of compliments.

Bummed this didn't work out!
I rented an 8 and a 10, and sadly neither of them fit! I couldn't even zip the 10 up halfway. I usually wear between a 6 and an 8 in dresses, so I was really surprised at how it fit since other reviews mentioned it was true to size. The tulle at the bottom was pretty crinkled and scrunched up from shipping, and the material was not as soft or flowy as I had expected. It looked more like a prom dress than a dress for a formal adult event. I'm sort of glad in the end that it didn't work out, but I was bummed to have wasted my money on it!

Just a touch of sparkle, feel like a princess
I usually wear a 10/12, but am pretty small chested with wide hips. I ordered the 10, but no way it was going to stay up during a night of dancing. Bottom of gown is very forgiving, could have gone a size down. Love how the bottom layers, not long so you won't trip, but long enough to still feel formal.

This dress!
This dress was so beautiful. Many people at the wedding and even people looking at pics after the wedding stated I looked like I was on the red carpet and to be honest, I felt that way in this dress! The fit in the bust was a bit big (I'm a 36C), but I didn't have to pull the dress up at all thanks to the double zipper in the back. I'm a 12 on the top and a 14 on the bottom and the 12R fit perfectly!

Dress was pretty, but ultimately chose something a bit more exciting.
Thought the uneven tulle hem looked a little off... not like a typical hi/lo dress

Simply perfect for a formal, masquerade ball wedding!
I got so many compliments on this dress at a formal masquerade ball wedding in August in Kansas City. The tulle and strapless style made it comfortable, despite the heat and humidity of a midwest summer. The embroidery on the bust and gold throughout elevated it beyond so many dresses. The double zipper is tricky, so make sure someone can assist you with it. The cut of the dress is perfect if you are curvier in your midsection as the fabric creates beautiful lines from your natural waist.

Stunning dress for wedding
My first dress choice wasn't available, so I got this one at the last minute instead. I'm so glad it worked out that way because this dress is gorgeous! The pictures really don't do justice to how sparkly it is. I wore it to an outdoor summer wedding and felt absolutely amazing in it. It's honestly probably better suited for a fall or winter event, but it was so beautiful that I didn't even care. The top is structured so I had no problem going without a bra. I'm always worried about my big hips, but the bottom is flow-y and flattering. Great first experience with RTR.

Such a beautiful dress!!!!
This was the most beautiful dress! I was sad to send it back. Wore it to my friends black tie wedding and got so many compliments! I was worried about the bust because I'm a 36DD. The 8L was too small in the bust so I went with the 10L. I had to pull it up a few times, but it was worth it!

Felt like a princess
This dress is so special. It fell beautifully, the high-low hem was an unexpectedly elegant touch, and it stayed up ALL night (I didn't have to pull it up or adjust it at all during the night). My one caveat is that it looked slightly childish -- the sparkles and the tulle poof of the gown definitely make it feel more like a high-school prom dress than an elegant wedding guest dress. But it was so much fun to wear that, in the end, I didn't much care whether it was age-appropriate.

I rush ordered this dress after my first one was too short and I am so glad I did! The length was perfect and the tulle and sparkles were super pretty. Its also incredibly comfortable (theres a double zipper that helps it stat up). I received so many compliments- it was like no other dress I saw at prom.

I felt like Cinderella
I loved this dress! It was beautiful. I wore a strapless bra and it worked perfectly and everything stayed in place for a night of dancing. It was slightly tight on my ribs but I have a very big chest. I'm 5'5 and got the 12 long and paired it with tall heels. The dress was a highlow and I didn't have trouble with the length except going up stairs. The details were beautiful and I felt elegant wearing it.

Beautiful and romantic dress
I didn't end up choosing to wear this dress because the strapless wasn't the most flattering on me, but the dress itself is beautiful. Sort of reminds me of Van Gogh's "Starry Night." The hem is a little different- it's shorter in the front than I realized it would be, but it's actually nice if you don't want to wear towering heels.

Very pretty dress
This is a very pretty dress, but it didn't work for me. I really loved everything about it, but I am pregnant, and I didn't have enough space in the rib cage. (I am short so my bump takes up the entire mid section!) I suspected that it wouldn't work, but it was so pretty that I decided to take a chance. (My other choice worked perfectly though!)

Pretty dress, wrong fit for me.
Gorgeous dress. I thought it was silver and gold, but it is just gold. I couldn't get the tulle to completely de-wrinkle at the bottom. I have a muscular body and something about the fit was off. The back was very tight and the bust was lose (36C ) the length was perfect, I am 5'6.5' with a heel. I think I just had the wrong body type to pull this dress off, but i could see it looking great on a different body type.

large and prom-like
i've worn a few marchesca notte dresses, i'm consistently a 4 even though i'm typically btwn a 2 and a 4. the 4 was v large on me. i should've sized down based on reviews. even if i did get the 2, i still have a fundamental issue with this dress. it looks too much like a prom dress or a dress for someone younger (i'm 30). i'm going to a black tie wedding in nyc and the combination of the tulle, sparkles, and sequins just didn't look sophisticated on this dress. maybe if i was younger i wld feel differently, but i didn't find this dress to be formal enough for a wedding in nyc
