Classic Marni.

Classic Marni: great stitching, nice fabric, expensive look. If I were purchasing, would have gone down a size but the shift style worked well for for a comfortable day at the office. Received a lot of compliments on this despite feeling like dress was a bit of a tent. Recommend sizing down given the boxy shift style. Colors are brighter than they appear in the picture - definitely a noteworthy and eye catching component of this dress.

Quirky conservative

This dress was a great work dress if you have a professional attire dress code. Pro: excellent rich fabric, colors much nicer and vibrant in person, great architectural structure/shape Con: you have to be into a progressive architectural shape for this to be a winner. This is advanced fashion I styled it with a vintage black and white a-line Rain trench, black suede and mesh pumps, a salmon suede clutch and silver jewelry. Perfection on a Monday.

Not the most flattering but comfy, great print and quality

I liked the style and got some compliments. I tried to make it less boxy with a trench and denim jacket (different styling the 2x I wore it). Glad I got to try it with RTRU but not really a closet staple for me.

Baggy

The fabric is high quality, but unfortunately the fit is awkwardly baggy and long. Very unflattering. It might have looked better in a size down, but I wouldn't try it again.

Only for skinny arms and tiny chest.

The sleeves and chest are very tight. I am an A cup, most dresses are lose in the chest for me. This was so tight in the chest and arms, that I could not wait to get home and take it off.

With Unlimited, try a different fit

I am used to fitted sheaths but took a gamble on this boxy look with exquisite fabric and detailing and ended up loving it. Why not try something new.

Boxy

Fabric was very thick and the dress was a little big on me, so it ended up looking very boxy. I also thought the color was different from the photo.

Cute look but tight!

I always forget how much I hate wearing shift dresses to work!! I loved the look of this dress and the length when I put it on although it was tight in the neck. As a classic shift it rides up when you lift your arms up or sit. Sitting was so uncomfortable and that's what I do all day. I also wore with heels. If I rented again I'd size up and go with flats. This is perfect for work event or someone who doesn't sit all day at work.

N/A

Did not wear because it was snug through my neck and shoulders. I travel for work so unfortunately this wasn't an option for me - great print and high quality fabric. Pick for work if you don't have to move your arms above your shoulders.

Cute design but very boxy

I was really excited about this dress, as it's quite different than the other work dresses in my closet. However it was really boxy and not very flattering. The lining adds some volume as well. It almost feels likes it's slightly padded. I've never worn a Marni dress before. Maybe this is typical? I wore it anyway...

Too tight across the shoulders

I loved everything about this dress but unfortunately it was WAY too tight across my chest and shoulders. It wasn't tight in the bust--it was tight along my collarbone and uncomfortable around my neck. Such a shame because I loved the pattern and fit elsewhere, and I'm not a person with a broad chest or broad shoulders!

Not a good fit - didn't wear it.

This dress is not made for anyone with curves. It was tight on my hips and a little too short for work, even though I'm 5.3". I found it to be a little tight in the shoulders as well. I don't think sizing up would help because the proportions would be off.

Wonderful fit and pattern

Perfect for work meetings on a slightly chilly SoCal day (wore with opaque black tights but would be cute bare-legged!). Fabric is on the thicker side due to the high-quality lining which also makes this fairly flattering. Pattern is really easy on the eyes.

Perfect for a 60s themed party

Fun dress for a 60s themed party, not sure I would have rented it for anything else. Shoulders/arms were a little snug besides that it was true to size.

Mod - just the way I like it

Good sheath dress. Covers all the flaws in the middle. Wore multiple times. Versatile for all seasons (maybe not when too hot - the lining may be too thick/heavy). Probably not for anyone with wide shoulders...or size up.

Not the most flattering dress

This dress runs large. I usually wear an 8 in most RTR sizing. I rented this in a 44 and it was huge. It fit in the bust but the width towards the bottom flared out in a stiff, unflattering way. It's also better suited for taller ladies. I didn't wear with my Unlimited subscription and ended up returning immediately.

Easy, cute dress for work.

i liked this a lot, but definitely size up, especially if you are big chested like me. Even though i sized up it was still tight/a little bunchy in the chest. You can't tell on the model, but def long enough for work.

Classic and comfortable

It looks very bulky on the hanger but very comfortable as it is fully lined with cotton fabric. I also rent the top in the same pattern. RTR's size recommendation is spot on.

This is a fun dress.

This is made of very expensive material. It lays nice and looks nice. It is actually black with a baby blue and peach color. I thought it was navy from the picture. Either way it looked great on and is perfect for work.

Cute and classic

I have never worn Marni before so was excited to try it out. Dress was very cute, simple, and professional. It definitely showed signs of wear. I felt the arms and butt were a TAD snug so I may have to size up next time and compare. Overall, happy with this rental.

Nice professional look

Loved this dress, a typical Marni silhouette that is great for work, in a geometric print that is more typical for a professional look than the Marni’s usual florals. I liked the color palette a lot (the light blue and sort of cool peach give dimension to the basic black and white), and there is nice white contrast-stitching at the chest and hems that add structure. Fit is true to size and typical for this style for Marni: rather slim through the shoulders and bust, with a straight shift shape through the body so not fitted at the waist and possibly a little tight in the hips if you (like me) are pear-shaped. I go with a 2 instead of a 0 in these dresses because of this. The length is slightly shorter than some of the other Marni dresses, which may be a plus for petites who find the proportions too conservative – on me the length was ok although I would have preferred it slightly longer especially for sitting at the office, and if you are tall you may find this too short when sitting.
