I had so many compliments! People told me all night how beautiful I was, it made me feel so good about myself. I really loved the dress, the jewelry and purse! I felt like Cinderella at the ball!

This dress was perfect! It was extremely flattering! The arms were awesome! I wore this to a black tie wedding. During the dance I was able to get down and boogie, my arms were able to move freely and ease (they are NOT attached to the dress in a way that is restricting). The fabric of this dress was light and VERY comfortable! I loved this dress! I had so many compliments! People told me all night how beautiful I was, it made me feel so good about myself. I really loved the dress, the jewelry and purse! I felt like Cinderella at the ball! be aware that even the regular length is long! I am 5"5 and wore three inch heels and still stepped on the dress a bit. Other then that it was perfect! I WILL be using RTR again! I love it! I was able to send the dresses to my hotel and send them home from the hotel, no packing the dresses with me! Thank you sooo much RTR!!!! :)

Overall fit: True to Size

The dress fit beautifully. The roushing in the mid section hid what I wanted to hide. The dress accentuates the shoulders and bust line. The fabric stretches and is very comfortable. I got tons of complements and the dress was very easy to wear. The long worked well with 3 inch heels. There were no cons to the dress. Would definitely wear again.

The fit was flattering and comfortable. The navy is a deep blue almost black. I wore black leather heels (3 inches). I considered navy shoes, but because the blue was so deep, the black shoes were perfect.

I rented the dark blue one for a wedding. The color of the actual dress was darker than in the picture. It was closer to black, but it's still a gorgeous dress. Fits well, flows nicely. I got a lot of compliments on the dress. It's very elegant and sophisticated. Highly recommend it. I had ladies ask me where I got it- so I referred them right to RTR!

The dress fit well, but very long even with 4.5 inch platform heels
Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress has boning wires and when I received it they were bent in the wrong direction and the arms were a bit stretched out, but I was able to bend the wires and make it work. I received tons of compliments. My sister wore the purple Nicole Miller dress in 0R and I have worn it also and it fits even better! The length in Nicole miller 0R is more true to size, I'd say overall that badgley mischka just runs a touch larger and longer.

I wore this dress for my prom (surprise surprise) and everything about this dress was stunning; the color, the fit, and the style. I've never felt so confidant in any dress before, it's easliy the most flattering dress I've ever worn. The compliment i got the most was, "You look like a princess!". I would definitely reccomend this for an hourglass shape; the roucheing (probably not spelled right) and the fit were perfect for bringing out the best parts of my body.

This dress is very flattering. The side ruching gave it a close fit which accentuated my shape. The length allowed my toes to peep out in the front, and is a bit longer in back. I did have someone step in it once. A very dark blue. The strapless neckline held up perfectly and without the benefit of tape! Love love love this dress!

Accentuates your curves and hides the flaws!
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The ruching all over the gown defines your curves and hides the lumps and bumps because it's not a thin piece of fabric stretched over your body. Note that unless you are super thin, your curves will fill out the dress and there won't be as much ruching as pictured on the model so you have to kind of bunch it up a little if you want that ruched look. The stretch jersey is thick and high quality, but isn't super heavy so it was comfortable all night. The only drawback was the boning in the bodice, it's necessary to give the dress structure and to help hold up your boobs w/o having to wear a bra, but has a tendency to bunch up when you sit or over time as you walk/move. As long as you pull the gown down, it straightens out. While I loved this gown and I made it work, this may be a better choice for a medium to smaller-chested woman. Even though it has sleeves, it's essentially a strapless gown and I tugged at the bodice a bit to keep it from showing too much of the goods. This is my third Badgley Mischka dress from RTR, they seem to design gowns that fit almost every body type that are super flattering in high-quality fabrics, so they're becoming my go-to. Length was slightly longer than the other Badgleys in the R length, it may be just from natural stretching over time of the heavy jersey fabric. I wore 3.5" heels so it pooled nicely, just had to pick up the skirt when walking.

Size worn: 0L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I truly felt like royalty in this elegant, tasteful dress. It was conservative and sexy at the same time. Not too revealing, but accentuated my figure. Me likey! Word to the wise: Tall ladies especially: I ordered a 0L because it was all that was available (I am only 5'5, so I figured I would just wear some really high heels if it was too long). I wore a pair of 5' heels and they were perfect, but a higher pair made the dress look too short! Thank you!!

Gorgeous, form fitting dress!
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I'm 5'9" and the L length was perfect with 3" heels! The dress is very form fitting, but the ruching helps to hide any imperfections. I was torn between this dress and another I had rented, but because this dress showed my curves, my husband insisted I wear this one (and I'm glad it was his choice). It's a simple and elegant dress, but very sexy without being inappropriate for a very formal affair (like the Marine Corps Ball).

I had TONS of compliments on this gown, everyone loved it! It did run a little large and because it ran large it bunched up in the back a little bit. If you are thinking about renting this I suggest you order a size smaller than you usually wear!

I wore this for my girlfriend's wedding in South Carolina. It was a formal event and the dress (paired with the Badgley Mischka Art Deco Cuff) made quite a statement. The ruching was slimming while the length of the dress was elongating for my 5'4'' frame. Loved it.

everything was great with this dress, but it definitely needs some eye-catching jewelry. The next line is very elegant and I was really happy with the length (hello tall girls!). The boning on one of the dress under the bust line popped out, put other than that it was a simple clean fun dress.

I was complimented by many other women, but it was my husband's jaw dropping "you look gorgeous" that did it.
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Some of the reviews said true to size or slightly larger. I ordered a 4L (I am 5'8") and a 2L based on the "runs large". I ordered both in WINE color. When they came, the 2L was wine, the 4L was Navy blue. The 2L was LONGER than the 4L, which was odd but it was too tight. The 4L fit perfectly and although it wasn't the color I selected, it was truly gorgeous. I will definitely rent from Rent the Runway again.

The fact that I was able to order 2 different sizes was great!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am fairly tall so I ordered a size 4R and a 4L just to make sure. I received so many compliments on this dress. I would say that I think a size 2 would have fit better and bit tighter (which is what I'd prefer) but the boning on this dress was uncomfortable.. especially on the sides and under the bust. Overall it was bearable. It runs long and I was able to wear the 4R with 4 inch heels and it looked perfect.. the 4L was way too long. The dress was a rich navy blue, I love this dress and so worth it..

Loved the dress - countless compliments!
Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I'm not actually "straight and narrow", but I'm totally "straight up and down": 40-39-43. This dress looked AWESOME. The regular length was perfect for 3 inch heels - an inch above floor length in front and a little bit of a train in back. The ruching helped me feel less lumpy. The neckline is very sexy. Things to know: - There is boning built into this dress that is ridiculous - not so much around the breasts, but definitely in the back. I examined the dress more closely and it looks like the ends of the nylon boning are actually *pointy*. I You could possibly pad the sharp ends of the boning with padded tape or something - but you'll definitely have to do *something*. I wore a waist cincher with this and that was enough to keep me comfortable - any shapewear with a tight knit that comes to just under your bra strap will do. - Like others, I noticed an area of the zipper in the back that tended to get lumpy and not lie flat. In my case it wasn't as pronounced as I've seen in some of the other pictures posted here. I think this might have something to do with whether you're long-waisted or not. I'm a little short-waisted (head to waist is about 8 inches shorter than waist to floor), so take this into consideration when deciding whether you want this dress. - I used the included fashion tape to keep the sleeves where I wanted them - they had a tendency to be droopy. - I didn't have any problems moving my arms, and that included twirling and being twirled by my 9-year-old dance partner.

This dress was amazing! I normally wear a 14W or 16 regular clothes. I ordered the 16 & 14, and ended up wearing the 14. The ruching makes the fit very flattering. It has built in stays for the bust area which were a little uncomfortable at times, but overall this was a 5 star dress. The L is long. I am 5'8" and had on 2.5 inch heels in the photo. But it wasn't so long that I had any trouble dancing.

I definitely felt like a princess in this dress.
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress is pretty and flattering, but be warned it is almost black not blue. It's a very very dark midnight navy. Also, it is incredible long. I am 5'10 so I ordered the 2L as recommended and even with 5 inch heels it was dragging on the floor. Stick with the Regular unless you are INSANELY tall or feel like wearing very high heels. And one last thing, this dress created a bunch in the back, I think if I had a huge butt it would have been fine but you can see in the second picture the bunching in my back, it almost made it look like I was wearing a microphone.

I rented this dress and the same style with the black sequins- I wore this dress because it was a more sophisticated look and more comfortable. It was very long, especially since I have to wear low heel (1.5inch) heels. The dress tended to ride up in back, resulting in a bulge/hump in the lower back. This was probably due to my hips being less than small and/or needing to be a bit taller for the dress. Still- a fabulous dress! Comfortable, stylish, and stunning. I got compliments all night! The rental process was easy and totally satisfying- I will be back and told many people to use the service.

Needed a dress for a formal work function that was more conservative than what I had in my closet. This fit the bill perfectly. Dresses are a little worn, the zipper was a little pokey, but no biggie. I wore 5.5" heels so I went with the OL. Fabric didn't look overly high-end but ruching allowed me to eat seconds and not blink an eye!

It fit great. There was just one thing - it was WAY too long. I tried "rigging" it by using the style snaps to try and hold it up, but the fabric was so heavy that it pulled them all down. I couldn't walk or dance without holding up the end. Very distracting and disappointing.

I felt so good in this dress because the fit was really awesome.

Beautiful fit but couldn't wear it because it was about 9 inches too long even with 4 inch heels. Also, as others have commented, there is a funky Quasimodo "bubble" that occurs in middle of back and it's very unattractive. Pulling dress down from bottom or any other adjustment would not make it go away. My husband thought it odd, too, so it just didn't make the cut

WHen I first took this dress out of the box I wasn't sure what to think -- as other reviewers have said, it is a VERY dark blue, plus I wasn't sure about the boning in the bust line. However, it turned out to be a terrific dress on. It was comfortable; the fit was sleek and yet forgiving; and I got compliments on the dress all night. As a G-cup, I especially appreciated being able to wear a strapless/off the shoulder dress without worrying about undue cleavage exposure; the support built into the bust might have looked odd from above, but from every other angle it looked fine, and it made sure I didn't have to do the endless strapless bra re-adjusting that is usually the case! The only caveats: As others have said, this dress runs VERY long. I got the regular, and even though I am 5'8" and wore 3-inch heels, I still felt like the dress trailed the floor a bit more than I would have desired. Also, it crumpled more in transit than I would have anticipated given the material. The crumples came out fine with a steamer, but anyone hoping to wear it on very short notice or take it with them on a trip should be aware. At any rate, the dress was absolutely fantastic and I'd highly recommend it.

It was an amazing dress that I felt amazing in. Very flattering on a curvy body.
Size worn: 16R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The material is very stretchy and forgiving. I usually wear a size 16W and I wish that I had been able to order the 14 as my back up but it wasn't available. I am a 36DD bust and the bodice was about 2 inches to large, but the arms were tight. The sleeves are attached in a way that allows for a great amount of movement. I am 5'8" and though RTR recommended the Tall, I ordered the regular and I was glad I did, even with my 3" heels I had to hold the dress up to walk in it. The stays in the bodice however were coming though on my dress and it made of a very painful night if I had to sit for any period of time. The plastic stays dug into my skin on both sides all night :( I hope that they inspect the dresses when they come back for minor repairs such as this but overall it was worth it for all the compliments I received on the dress, even from the bride :)
