Bold color, flowy skirt
I liked this dress a lot but it wasn't my favorite Badgley Mischka dress ever and here's why. 1) This dress fit great on me BUT as other reviewers have mentioned, there is no give in the band that runs around the waist and I found it to be a little tight for my comfort; ideally I should've sized up for my back up, but didn't want to risk it being too big everywhere else. This didn't stop me from wearing the dress by any means, I just had to "suck it in" a little more than I would've liked to all night. Also, it was great at downplaying my hips and butt because of the flowy skirt. 2) The length; seemed a little long to me but I'm a shorty at 5'2 so I kind of anticipated the length might be a slight problem for me. Oddly enough though, it seemed longer in the front than the back (as you can see in my photo), not sure if that's my body shape's fault or the dress's fault but thought I would point it out anyway. I also only wore a 2/3 inch heel so the length maybe could've been better had I worn a higher heel - but let's be honest, why kill yourself wearing a super high heel all night if no one is even going to see them, no thanks. 3) The ruching in the bust area will probably compliment someone with a smaller bust because, at a D cup, I definitely didn't need any help in that area, therefore I was little self-conscious at how big my girls appeared to look but that's just a personal preference. 4) The skirt part of this dress is slightly sheer, wear nude undergarments! I got away with wearing no bra which was nice. All in all, this was a great rental for the price and occasion. It definitely demands attention with its bold color and the flowy skirt makes you feel SO pretty.
