so much prettier in person than in the photo!
The photo of this dress on the model does not do it justice! The color looks washed out in the photo but the colors of the lace detail are so pretty and vibrant in person! The lace is fairly thick and sturdy, I would feel comfortable dancing in this dress. The lace detail at the neckline contours perfectly around the collarbone to give you the most delicate decolletage. The ribbon at the waist helps define the waist and give appropriate curves. This dress draws the attention to all the right places! The dress, although comfortable, does not have any flex. I am between a 0/2 and the 0 fit like a glove, it was form fitting without being tight. However, when I would sit it would feel a little snug in the hips. As another reviewer mentioned, this dress is heavy when you hold it in your hands, but I didn't notice the weight once the dress was on. However, the R was too long for me, I am 5'2'' and wore my highest shoes to try on the dress (wedges, with a 2 inch platform in the toe rising to a 6 inch platform in the heel) and it was still dragging on the floor. Had to send it back.

I cannot say ENOUGH about how beautiful this dress is. The fit is so flattering, the lace is perfectly detailed, and the colors are stunning. I received compliments left and right and couldn't help but feel like a goddess!

I had trouble finding a dress for prom, RTR saved the day.
The dress fit like it was made for me. It looked like it was brand-new and it was absolutely gorgeous. I am so glad I stumbled upon RTR, it was affordable and I felt like a princess at my last high school dance.

Both sizes fit but I went up a size in order to lessen the cleavage factor. Perfect dress for a spring Gala!!!

Fairy tale dress
I was actually surprised I fit in the 0 since I'm usually a 2, by that was the only size available. It was definitely a bit tight in places, but I was still able to wear it. I love loved the embroidery and the material. It was perfect for a an afternoon- evening wedding in Hawaii. I love the neckline and it covered me up perfectly without being too sexy. The zipper was definitely not easy to close though, and neither was the neckline. You'll need a companion who will help you dress. For my height, you'll need highest pair of heels and the dress might still be on the edge. I would absolutely wear this dress again for a next formal event!

Beautiful
This dress is beautiful and the all over floral applique is quite impressive. I didnt end up wearing the dress as it was much to long for my 5'0" frame, even with 4 inch heels. It would be perfect for a taller lady.

The fabric
Gorgeous, heavy crocheted fabric! Got so many compliments. It was a formal, hot wedding in Mexico and I didn't feel overwhelmed by the weight of the dress. I am usually a size 4 and it gave me some room to move but maybe should've gotten the 2(which is crazy) so that it wouldn't have been so unbelievably long. I wore 4 1/2 in wedges. Can't wear heels cuz it will catch in the crochet. Highly recommend

Great colorful, elaborate dress for the right night.
It was just right for the NY Botanical Garden Gala - it's as colorful and elaborate as it looks, but for the right event, really fun! The long is long - I'm 5'8" and wore 3" heels, and would've preferred the regular length.

The PERFECT wedding dress I've been desperately searching for. Modern and romantic.
This fit me like a glove! Hourglass shaped ladies this cut is made for us! The lace overlay and scalloped neckline are sexy but sophisticated. The colors are pastel-like and even prettier in person. My wedding will be in a garden at a museum and this fits the bill to a T. I plan on purchasing this dress I love it so much. This is also extremely well made. Ladies, this is the perfect summer formal gown!

Compliments all night
I loved this dress! I'm 5'3" and wore 4" heels and it was still a little long - be careful with heels, they get caught in the lace overlay. It's a little tight in the bodice so if you're unsure, order up. But the dress is stunning... Even the bride complimented me more than once. I highly recommend ordering this dress!

Loved the detailing of this dress!
I recommend wearing heels or wedges as I'm 5'4" and it was still pretty long. I love that you can dress this look up or down - in my case, I dressed it down with a denim jacket. This dress was so beautiful and I love the floral details on it. Just be careful because it's easy to get caught in things with it!

Do you mind sharing your weight and average size? The only size available is 6R and I am not sure if it will fit.

Amazing summertime gown! Non-stop compliments.
I wore this to a formal June wedding, and it was amazing! SO comfortable; very, very gorgeous; unique and lovely! Notes: I ordered the 6L because it was the only size available, and it was indeed very long -- I was at risk of tripping with 3.5" heels on at 5'8". Anything besides a nubra might be tricky.

Gorgeous floral pattern!
This dress is so beautiful, it looks like spring in a gown. The colors were lovely and the crochet work was amazing. It has room for stretch and works well for wider hips. It was nice and long too which is problem with some gowns. The only thing I wasn't sure about was the weight. It was heavy and the crochet outer layer was thick. Despite that, it was a lovely dress.

This dress fit perfectly and was one of the most elegant things I've ever worn.
BEAUTIFUL details. Wore this for a black tie wedding in Kentucky. The lace is done exquisitely well, and the details around the neckline are incredible. I am close to 5'10 and I ordered the long and it was actually almost too long (I wore a kitten heel) - which is something I never say. I love Marchesa Notte and find her design details so impressive. Rent this dress!

I got so many compliments on this dress! The fabric is beautiful and the fit was perfect. The length was a tiny bit long, but I was okay with 3 inch heels. I've recently lost weight and this was the perfect way to show it off! Very form fitting and a nice silhouette.

Lovely in lace
Fit was absolutely perfect. Slid right on, and runs extremely true to size. Only con about the dress was the zipper; it kept getting caught and was extremely difficult to zip up or down, I had to get multiple ppl to help me. Once it was zipped it was drop dead gorgeous. Compliments all night.

Lovely Summer Guest of Wedding Dress
I usually wear a size 4, but the 2 was more flattering. My 32DD breasts were secure and did not need a bra for support due to the tighter fit. Even with five inch heels, the dress was still roughly five inches still too long (I am 5 feet short). My crafty aunt came up with the idea of folding the dress (inner lining and crochet outer shell) inward and securing with loose back- stitch threading with pink/peach thread. The dress felt heavier at the bottom, and I was very cautious when walking. No one noticed the difference! The dress would be best fitting a curvy and much taller (~5'10" with flats) individual IMO. Any shorter would require heels or sewing skills. I easily unraveled the stitches before returning the dress with no damage done on my part. The zipper was a bit of hassle to get on and off. **For the record, there were holes in the bottom of the liner upon arrival. I am assuming that previous renters' heels went through the fabric during use, so wedges might be a better option.

Stunning dress!
This dress is so beautiful! I wanted to wear this to a summer formal wedding. The top is a but larger and did not fit my chest unfortunately. It would have been difficult to wear a bra (as I was hoping not to with this dress) but the way it fit, I would have had to wear one! Also, its a bit heavy. There's ALOT of dress, which made my hips look larger than I wanted them to.

This dress was a total winner. It looked gorgeous, was flattering and was memorable.
The dress fit true to size, but the long is quite long. I am 5'9" and the long was a bit too long for my 2 inch heels. It would have been perfect if I was in higher heels. The lace is gorgeous, but a quite heavy, so I was pretty hot (of course no one was coll for a 90 degree 90% humidity outdoor wedding with no A/C). Even in the heat, I looked great and got tons of compliments all night.

This dress was perfect in every way! I wore this dress for a Summer wedding, the colors were vibrant and the material concealed my tummy. I received tons of compliments from men and women! The dress fit me like a glove, the only con was I'm too short and kept stepping on the dress.. I would buy this dress!

This dress really looked and felt a bit more special than my average wedding attire.
Fit to size around my waist and had great coverage over my chest. Not too much cleavage. I had to pull up the straps around the neck and pin them to hold up my girls. The dress stayed in place the entire night, even through lots of dancing. I really loved this dress.

Unique
Pretty dress - colors are interesting and different, has some retro inspiration. Fits true to size but zipper is tricky with such heavily textured lace and the waist is tiny, so it's especially tough to get past. I'm 5'11 and the 4L was jussssst skimming the floor so I could have worn flats or a very short pretty heel. Fit was flattering to an hourglass shape, I possibly could have gone up to a 6 to have a little more room to move/sit/dance as it hugs the curves. That being said I went with another dress for this particular late summer wedding, the weight was nice for Fall but colors were very Springy!

Amazing dress for a formal event!
Went to a formal wedding in September. The detailing on the dress is so perfect and the colors complemented my olive skin color. I am 5'3 and rented a size 8R, I definitely needed to use at least 4" heels for this dress. The dress slightly scraped the floor with heels on. I couldn't change out of heels because the dress would be too long. I had a rough time dancing on the floor because my heels would get stuck through the detailing, so I had to lift up my dress to prevent that.

Wore this to a fall semi formal wedding. It's kind of heavy and kept me warm but not too hot! I'm 5'8" and this just hit the floor with flats. Definitely true to size- I have fuller hips/ butt and it was body hugging (but didn't create rolls!). Order size up as backup.

Fit is true to size. The lace detail is very elegant and the ribbon around the waist is slimming. The dress is pretty heavy material which was great for the slightly chilly weather. The regular was perfect length in heals.

Fabulous and Unique
I wore this for an evening formal gala, as I was looking for something that would stand out from the sea of black. This didn't disappoint! I received lovely compliments all night. The 4R was my backup size, and did fit but for being just slightly tight across my hips. I stuck with the 6R, which was a little big around my bust - but still looked good and was amazingly comfortable. I was a bit concerned because there were only two small buttons at the back of the neck holding up the halter top, and the dress arrived with one of the buttons almost falling off - but it held. I took the good advice from past commentary to wear wedges - good call. Mine were 4" and the dress still dragged the floor a bit. Definitely recommend!

Beautiful and unique
The best part about this dress was the lace cut-out around the neckline. The dress was a standout. I thought the belt around the waist was going to be removable as it kind of takes away from the stunning colors, but I covered it up with a gold belt to dress it up.

Belle of the ball!
I wore this dress to my law school's Barrister's Ball last night. As soon as I put it on, I knew it was perfect. It fit like a glove without being too tight and I loved how it made me feel. It was truly beautiful and elegant without being over-the-top. I got a ton of compliments throughout the night; some people even complimented the dress more than once because they loved it so much! One friend even said that he had "never seen me look so beautiful." (I should maybe try harder on a daily basis.) At brunch this morning, my friends brought it up again and agreed that I had the most beautiful dress there. Anyway this dress is my favorite thing I have ever put on my body and I am looking for reasons to wear it again before I have to send it back. I want so badly to keep it!!

Very heavy, but stunning and unique
Sadly this was a replacement dress that came too late for me to wear it. However, it's beautiful and unique. The colors are much more vibrant than in the picture, especially the green. The length was great for me at 5'5" with 3-4 inch heels. The neck line is different enough to stand out, but the dress is overall truly classy. I will say that this dress is HEAVY. I didn't wear it, but I think the weight may have made for a struggle of dancing all night. Would be ideal for a gala or event as the color would perfectly match a glass of champagne or white wine :)
