Lots of compliments!
This dress was a hit! I got so many compliments through out the evening. Not only did it look amazing, I felt great in it, too. It was surprisingly more comfortable than expected. My only criticism, if you could even call it that, were the sequins rubbing under my arms and the dress is heavy, but that's to be expected with the material.

I received so many compliments on this dress. It was a showstopper for sure!
The 8 was the best fit. I wore wedges and had no issue with the length. The sequins weren't a bother either, no rubbing on my arms. The 10 had a flip to the zipper so it looked like I had a duck tail, luckily the 8 fit great!

the dress is a show stopper
Under the arms gets a little scratchy, but the dress is very comfy to wear. just be careful that nobody steps on the small train it has.

I am pretty sure all 90 guests at the wedding complemented me in this dress. Be careful dancing. the sequins under the arms rub and can irritate your skin.

The perfect dress for a New Year's black-tie wedding!
I thought I would have to wear the 18, but was surprised by how well the 16 fit. The fabric is heavier but has a lot of stretch for comfort. I'm 5'5 with a full DD bust. It was a little shorter than I would have liked, but other than that this dress was perfect! I got tons of compliments on the color, as well!

Unable to wear but would rent again
Wasn't able to wear this one because the petite was too short and it ended up being a really strange length for the shoes I was going to wear. It was fairly true to size but if anything, a tad loose. I would order it again in a smaller, longer size for another occasion because the color is so pretty and the fit is easy to wear.

lots of sparkle and compliments
loved this dress, fit like a glove order a 10 and 12 and went with the 10 bc it tends to run larger! i wore a short teri jon velaro for modesty purposes but it looked like it was made for it bc of the dresses black lining. Its very figure flattering and makes somone who's not so tall 5'4 look taller! Classy and got copliments the whole night including from bride and groom!!! I def reccomend and would rent again from RTR!

Perfect for a fall wedding
I loved this dress and would gladly wear it again! I ended up getting the 2L as the regular was not available, and with 4 inch wedges it was perfect for me. The lining was soft and the sequins hid any imperfections. Best of all - you can wear a normal bra! The sequins did irritate the insides of my arms by the end of the night, but I was a dancing fool so maybe if you were more reserved than I this wouldn't be an issue.

Photographed beautifully
This dress ran small. Very Small. Luckily I sized up, and even then, thank god for Spanx. The dress was very heavy, and the sequin irritated my arms. However, it was beautiful, photographed very well, and for New Year's Eve, the sparkles were a must.

Dress is heavy but definitely worth it!
This dress fits like a glove and is so flattering. The sequins hide any bumps or lumps. The dress is very heavy when you pick it up, but I didn't feel weighed down when I wore it. The black band around the neckline and arms prevents the sequins from being scratchy.

beautiful elegant dress
beautiful elegant dress. Looks dark enough that it almost feels like a black dress. It does hug all the right places, and is very flattering. The dress is very heavy because of the material and all of the sequins that are on it.

Beautiful dress!
I wore this to a formal military ball. It fit wonderfully. I'm 5'2", and the regular was just long enough to fit with 3 inch heels. Even though it is fully sequined, it is stretchy, light-weight, and comfortable.

Flattering. No need to accessorize because the dress speaks for itself. So many compliments! I can't wait for another reason for wear a sparkle dress. Wore for a December wedding.

Lovely dress, classy, but still has a cool factor. Perfect for formal affairs & easy to dress up.
Looked amazing in the sun! Hid any little body fat, but mostly because it was heavy!! Was also outside on a hot summer day, but it was hot.. Dripping sweat hot. Nonetheless, got a million complements and felt I looked nice & different than what a lot of others were wearing. Would recommend!

Not my favorite, but still a lot of fun
I have rented several dresses from this designer and have had really wonderful experiences. This particular dress was not my favorite. The bottom was really pretty, but the weight of the sequins and the longer back of the dress made it difficult to have fun in. I wore it to a black-tie wedding and the color was awesome, it was really pretty to wear but not my favorite RTR dress. It fit me perfectly everywhere, except that it was long even with heals. It felt even longer than it was because of the weight. I have worn many sequined dresses, and this particular one did bother my underarms (even though other Bagley dresses I have worn have not).

Fit beautifully, got tons of compliments on it. It was an amazing dress!
I could wear a regular bra with this dress, it fit so beautifully - I felt transformed as soon as I put it on. Very elegant dress and not too showy which was a concern with the sequins. I just absolutely loved it! I was able to swap my shoes to flats and no one noticed because of the length of the dress. :)

Glamorous Evening!
I. Loved. This. Dress. I felt slim, sexy, and beautiful. It hung so well and was very easy to dance in, walk around in and just generally have a great time. Never had an issue with the sequins rubbing, which I was concerned about. Everything was flawless and I got more complements that I ever could have imagined. NOTE: I am tall, but even with a long in my size I couldn't wear heals. If I had worn the 10L I would have been able to wear heals.

Beautiful dress and great fit!
The dress was absolutely beautiful from the cut to the color and fit. The fabric had a little stretch to it which allowed it to hug my curves perfectly. The waistband did a wonderful job of accentuating my waist and the flare at the bottom did a nice job of balancing my wide shoulders. The color was a rich green without being too olive. All said I loved the dress and would highly recommend it.

This dress was AMAZING! It fit like a glove and I got so many compliments!!
I didn't have to wear Spanx like I was expecting to, it fit amazingly, although to be safe I ordered a 10. My dress size is usually an 8 but with a snug fit, I wanted to go up, and the 10 was perfect! It wasn't dragging on the ground. The sequins didn't itch my arms. It was a little heavy, but not too much. Perfect dress I never wanted to take it off!

This was a nice dress. Not much room to move around but I loved the color.
I ordered a long in both sizes. They were both short so I wore the larger size I requested as back-up. It was a little longer but I still had to wear a low heel (2") and I'm 5'8".

Absolutely wonderful dress! I got so many compliments and loved how it fit.
Good to get L if you are tall. I loved the bottom and how it flared out when I spun around. A little heavy fabric wise since it's all sequins, but its worth it. And I was moving around a lot and was fine, it was still comfortable. I would also suggest wearing heels with it for the length.

The dress looked absolutely gorgeous. It is heavy and is long so had to wear 4 inch high heels. I probably could have done a 16 rather than 16W but it still looked great and I received several compliments.

It fit very true to size. It was a little heavy but worked well for a holiday affair. I was worried about the sequins irritating my skin but it didn't seem to be a problem.
