Simple, stunning, comfy, elegant

Size worn: 14R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I'll start with the cons because there aren't many: I ordered a 12r and 14r, I loved the length if the 12r but I couldn't get the back to close comfortably, so I went with the 14. I would've preferred a long I'm both, but they weren't available, although, I suspect the 12 actually was a long. I am very shapely, with large breasts and a large hip/bottom area. The dress fit my curves perfectly. It was perfect for a black tie affair! I'm so glad a designer like Marchesa looks out for us thick girls! I will say this though, I have very small arms, so this dress wasn't a problem at all. My arms are the same size as they were when I was a size 8, so this might not work for someone who has larger arms.

You will not find a dress like this in a department store- one of a kind!

Size worn: 0L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This is certainly one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever worn. Elegant, conservative yet sexy at the same time. This dress is LONG- I am 5'7", wore 4.5" heels and it touched the ground slightly.The sleeves are NOT forgiving there is no stretch/ give to them. If you have muscular arms - it may be difficult to wear. Also, I would imagine that the model has the dress cinched in the back- it does not contour at the waist as it shows in the photo. Ok to wear nude bra with it- doesn't show. Overall, The detail in this dress is incredible, the color photographs beautifully. I would have liked for it to be slightly more form fitting at the waist. Experience with RTR- 5 stArs.

My daughter wore the dress for a school homecoming event. Elegant and vintage.... a look we wanted!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size

Worked perfectly for this event and she fell in love with the dress. We really needed the Long version of the dress but it wasn't available. She is 5' 9" and could have easily worn the dress with flats.

Perfect Mother-of-the-bride dress for a winter wedding!

Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to my daughter's vineyard wedding. It was perfect! I got more compliments than I could count. The dress does not have a tapered waist, but it fits very well. It has two linings, therefore spanx aren't necessary. The lace and mesh are very delicate however, and the dresses I received had been repaired, but because of the vine and leaf pattern, it was not noticable. I was comfortable all night long and felt wonderful. It as very appropriate for a wedding, but with only the lace on top, I didn't feel old or matronly. The color is a cranberry, which is just what we were looking for! I was very pleased and would recommend this rental.

Gorgeous dress! Hugs curves!

Size worn: 14R
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was beautiful! It runs a little small. I'm usually a 12 or 14, and this 14 only fit with Spanx and no bra. The color and material were beautiful. It was also shorter than the recommendations. I usually never need a long length both this dress hit my ankles without heels. Ultimately I wore my backup because I felt the lace didn't photograph well; it exposed my belly curves in an unflattering way. I would rent this again if I lost a few lbs and ordered the long length.

The lace is very, very delicate, so it's important to be conservative when wearing it. The overall comfort was fantastic and the dress was beautiful.

Dress arrived with holes in the mesh sleeves. My tailor sewed them up for me by hand. Otherwise the dress fit like a glove. I received so many compliments. Gorgeous winter wine color. Modest, formal, elegant and classy!

I absolutely loved the detail on this dress and I definitely felt glamorous wearing it!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Wearing at least a 4 inch heel on my petite 5'3" frame was a necessity....at that height, the dress was perfect in length. As in some of the other reviews, the sleeves do fit a little snug, but not uncomfortably tight. This dress is very comfortable and I was able to dance the night away with ease for the New Years Eve wedding I attended! I love Marchesa!! The compliments I received on this dress were numerous. This is my first Rent The Runway experience, and I am more than satisfied....I will be back!!!

Stunning dress

Size worn: 4L
Rented for: Formal Affair
Beautiful gown - tons of compliments. Fit snugly and was overall very flattering - very tight in underarms, but I'd rather the lace be too tight than too loose. Only complaint was that the dress came with 2 holes I had to sew up a few hours before my event. Good length for tall girls, but could not wear with very high heels or else it would have been too short.
