I wore this for the rehearsal dinner the night before my November wedding. It was perfect!

This dress was stunning for my rehearsal dinner. I got countless compliments from my bridesmaids and guests. The dress was pretty in pictures but even more beautiful in person. I wish I had a reason to wear it again!

Wonderful dress I wore as a bridesmaid in a "pick-your-own" dress wedding. So many compliments!

Sleeves were kind of tight on muscular arms. Overall, it was absolutely gorgeous and I got so many compliments!

Love!!!! So fancy.

This was my first RTR experience and it was a great one. I rented this beauty for my rehearsal and rehearsal dinner before my wedding on Dec 26 and it was PERFECT! The dress is absolutely stunning. It was perfect for the winter season and it glistened all over. I got SO many compliments and felt like a princess.

Great fit, however, the arms are a bit stiff, but that is expected with the style.

Fabulous rehearsal dinner outfit!

I was nervous whether or not this would be a flattering look or not, but I wanted something elegant for my rehearsal dinner. It fit great, though I felt it had a bit of a bell shape in the waste which wasn't as flattering as I had hoped. Also - don't wear tights with this dress. The fabric of the overlay shredded my tights!

Elegant and unique

I wore this for my rehearsal dinner and couldn't have been happier. It was the right length and fit for a formal party but with a lot of interesting points in the layers and gold embroidery details. The long sleeves were beautiful and it still felt lightweight because of the delicate materials.

Gorgeous dress with beautiful details.

Beautiful dress. The lace details was gorgeous. I wore this to my sons baptism and received lots of compliments. It was a little snug on my hips but that was excepted for me because I have large hips. I saw lots of comments about people complaining about itchy sleeves, I didn't feel it. The only complain I have it that the dress looked worn out. You couldn't tell because of the lace details but this dress in the size 4 worn out, it looks like it's been worn and washed at least 100 times!

This dress is beautiful! I'm normally a 2 and it was a bit snug, but it looked great on!

Besides the dress being a little tight, the sleeves were itchy. After awhile though, I didn't notice it itching anymore and it was a great party dress! My suggestion, don't wear if you're going to be somewhere warm and if you want to dance. I did receive a ton of compliments and I loved the dress overall, it's truly a piece of art!

The gold lace is stunning. Perfect for my rehearsal dinner

Runs a little small. Would recommend sizing up. The length is a bit odd if you're on the shorter side. The sleeves are itchy but worth it!

Beautiful lace

I was a bit nervous about renting this dress because I have big arms and a larger chest (38DD). The arms were pretty restrictive (and slightly itchy) and the top flattened my boobs, but overall it worked out fine. I wore the 14, which is my normal dress size, along with Spanx and a strapless bra. I loved the gold lace and I thought the length was perfect. I would rent this dress again.

Lace was beautiful

It ran a bit large on me and I wore the smallest size. Too much room in the arms and it was a tiiiiny bit itchy. All the cons are really only noticeable to the the wearer because besides those minor things I received TONS of compliments.

Fit perfectly, no give in the sleeves and kind of snug across my 36 DDD chest but it was relatively comfortable and it was gorgeous!

Beautiful and perfect

The embroidery and the quality of the dress are worthy of the compliments I got that night. It was perfect for a conservative Catholic wedding almost upstaging the bride. It was slightly tight around my hips but I was 5mos post baby. Otherwise, it's true to size.

officiant style

I needed a dress that would be easy to wear in Chicago summer hear and extreme humidity. I felt like the sleeves were awkward fitting and the tones of the dress were better suited to those with lighter skin. Although it was a pretty dress, I was not at all satisfied with the fit. I can see it being gorgeous on those who aren't very curvy; not the ideal for folks with shapely hips, butt, and thighs.

Love Marchesa! But be careful of body type..

This dress is absolutely beautiful, Marchesa never ceases to amaze me, so when I got the dress and tried it, on I was surprised when it just didn't want to work. I am a size 8 and I'm 5'7 and I'm just a little curvy in the hip and thigh area. For this dress? No bueno, not happening lol. But for less curvy girls, go for it!! The sleeves are not comfortable, but aren't bad either. Mid section and bust area were a little wonky, but like I said, less curvy girls, totally get this! Really disappointed I couldn't wear it for my date to the nutcracker ballet.

I rented this to wear to one of my engagement parties. Dress was gorgeous but the sleeves fit weird. They were very tight and uncomfortable, so much so that I opted not to wear.

Don't usually go for princessy tulle, but man! This one is epically gorgeous.

I usually wear a 4, but the sleeves were a tad bit loose (just enough to look bunchy), as was the waist. The 2 was snug in all the right places but still gave me enough freedom to move around. Wore this to an anniversary dinner date and I've never felt more elegant. Begs for a glass of champagne, this dress.

Bridal shower dress

I ordered the 2 and the 4 but since this runs large I wish I had ordered the 0 and the 2 (even though I wear a 4!) The 2 as you can see was a nice fit and if you rent this dress you'll be guaranteed to get lots of compliments! A very luxe dress that works well in any season.

The earring rtr paired with is fantastic

It makes you look a bit fatter than you are, mainly because of the design of waist part. But the patterns on the dress are gorgeous.

I wore this dress for my talent portion of a pageant, Got so many positive comments, both before and after the event! The dress was a tad longer than I wanted it to be, but all in all it set the tone of what I was bringing to the stage.

I wore this dress for my sister in law's wedding in Austin,TX

I was really torn between wearing the size 2, which fit me comfortably from the chest but the sleeves looked very loose, or the size 0 which the sleeves fit great but was pretty tight from the chest. I ended up wearing the size 0. It was not the most comfortable dress and after wearing it for about 10 hours, I was so ready to get out of it but the detail of the dress was exquisite and so delicately beautiful that I would not have chosen any other.

Too many compliments to count

This dress was drop dead gorgeous. Everything about it was perfect. I am normally a size 4, but they only had a size 2 in stock and I tried it. The 2 was perfect, so I guess it runs a bit large. The sleeves are hot despite being sheer. I wouldn't recommend it for an outdoor summer wedding, but if you have an event with AC, go for it!

beautiful but large

I ordered this dress in a 0. I ended up not wearing it because it just didn't fit right. It was beautiful, but the gold lace overlay was super stiff and because of that , made me look very boxy. It was not flattering on my frame.

Beautiful dress for fall/winter

I tried on this dress for my rehearsal dinner. It is a beautiful dress but it was unseasonably warm where I live so it was far too warm to wear. I ended up wearing a different option dress. The sleeves are a little itchy but worth it as the dress is gorgeous. This does run a little small. I am usually a comfortable 6 and I had to wear an 8 in this dress.

Didn't wear it. :/

This was a beautiful dress, however it could not fit my muscular arms. Both the size 4 and 6 were large on my body, but squeezed my arms. It's a pity. This dress is not for athletic figures.

Gorg but runs small

I rented thsi dress for my rehearsal dinner and unfortunately, it fit terribly. I am not petite but by no means unable to fit into a size 6. The sleeves were so tight and the fabric was so stiff that it just didn't work. I was so bummed bc it's such a striking dress but the stylists at RTR came to my rescue (including emailing me available options for the weekend---they always go above and beyond!)

Beautiful dress -

I received a size 12 and a size 14. The 12 was too small and the 14 didn't fit quite right. I ended up not wearing either one, but not the fault of RTR.

I rented this dress for my elopement in NYC and I loved it! I felt like a princess.

I usually wear 6, but I ordered a size 4, based on reviews. The size 4 was perfect in my body and I cant say that size 6 would be big, since received another dress as backup. It was my first experience with RTR and the service is great.

Lace is SO stiff!

Rented this dress for a professional cocktail/dinner party and was surprised how very stiff the lace was on the dress. It stood out from my body with no drape at all. Edges of the lace got caught in the underlining. While the dress fit fine, I just couldn't wear it because it added at least 5 pounds to my appearance because of the lace.

Great Dress for Our Yule Ball

This dress was beautiful. I wore it for a mini Yule Ball (from Harry Potter) my friends and I threw. I would not recommend it for pear shapes; there was very little stretch and my butt not fit well in the 6. The detailing on the arms was beautiful but uncomfortable.

I felt like royalty at my bridal shower! The detail is exquisite!

The dress is undeniably beautiful. I received so many compliments wearing it at my bridal shower. The detail and gold color make it classic and timeless. I have a very athletic build and I am very broad. After reading the reviews about the sleeves being stiff I became nervous but took a chance anyways! The sleeves were stiff but the 14 fit like a glove and it was perfect. I was very comfortable the whole afternoon. I am normally a 10-12 so the dress definitely runs small! I wish I could keep this gorgeous piece in my closet. I highly recommend renting it!!!

Beautiful color

I was sent this as a backup dress. It is not my style at all but is really beautiful. I found the 14 to be tight in the rib cage, there is no stretch to the fabric. The sleeves and lace are beautiful.

RTR CustomerAugust 11, 2014
Hi, does the material under the lace have any stretch to it? I understand from reviews it seems to be a little tighter in the rib/top area but is there more give on the lower half of the dress? It looks like in the pictures that it's more of an empire type style. Thanks!
GinaAugust 11, 2014
Hi, I don't remember there being any stretch to the lace. I think the bottom was very roomy on me. I hold extra weight in my waist/chest, not hips/legs. Just go for it! RTR works best when you're a little adventurous!
GinaAugust 11, 2014
Hi, I just added another photo for you. I'm not sure why the first one got cropped like that, it was full length but, oh well.

I could not wear the dress.

The dress was tight in the waist but fit in the bust. It is made for an hour glass figure.
