Gorgeous color dress!
This dress fit true to size. I don't think it has been worn many times, so it wasn't stretched out and looked brand new. The color was absolutely lovely!! I wore the 0R and found it to be a tad longer than I would've liked (I'm 5'6" for reference). I had to wear some higher heels to keep it from dragging on the floor. The top had boning to help keep it up, but I had to wear a push-up bra to help fill-it out and it sill fell down a bit. There is a bit of rouching/gathering over the midsection of the dress that I didn't notice in the original picture - looked very pretty but also added some extra bulkiness in the middle. I would've like it better with out this extra detailing. Overall a beautiful dress though. I was very pleased with the rental!

This dress is gorgeous! The material, the color - stunning!
The dress definitely runs small, first off. I would definitely recommend sizing up. The bust area is not for busty women. The material is gorgeous, though not stretchy at all. I received a lot of compliments and felt very pretty, just not very comfortable.

Stylist Review
This gown is perfect for a black tie event! I would suggest getting a strapless bra depending on your bust size. It is fitted at the natural waist and flares out in the hip section.

Stunning and easy to wear!
I wore this to a gala I worked at and it was the easiest dress ever. I am 5'10" and wore ballet flats, it just hit the ground. It was extremely easy to move in, I wasn't pulling on it at all at any point in the night.

Great color
Rented this for a charity event. Great color for a black tie event. Fits well and easy to wear. Boning helps keep good shape for top and could go without a bra. I am a small A so I wore a bra to help fill it out.

"Purple Rain"... It earned a nickname. So many compliments from EVERYONE I passed. So many "likes."
Like a glove! Flexible and comfortable from sitting to dancing. The color is great with any skin tone and hair color. Regular is very tall so I wore tall heels... That was the only uncomfortable piece. This dress was amazing!!!

Very elegant. Looks like you are ready for the red carpet.
Beautiful dress. Really suits you if you are tall and on the slender side. It is extremely rich looking. The color is vibrant.

So easy and the dress was gorgeous!
The mermaid style fit my pear/hourglass shape perfectly, and the length was just right for 4" heels. I wore this to my husband's black tie graduation dinner and received countless compliments. The color is really stunning, especially with gold accessories!

Many gorgeous selections all latest styles and excellent customer service
I never realized how much different dress sizes are, when I first started looking for a dress I thought it was the same as your pants size boy was I wrong! Don't fixate on the dress size number go by what fits to your shape I normally wear a 8 in pants but had to get a 16 in this style dress! I didn't realize the inside lining of dress doesn't stretch and this particular style had no stretch but in the end it fit like a glove. This site has so many selections and styles to choose ! I will continue to use again and again love it!!!

Gorgeous color but too small for me to wear
I reserved the 2R after reviewing the sizing specs but it was just too small to zip over the girls. Color was beautiful so I may try to rent a larger size for a future event.

Beautiful color and flattering fit.
I normally wear a 12/14 but with this dress thank God my backup was a 16R (the 14R was not available). I ended up going with the 16R. The dress is a beautiful color. I only gave it 3 stars because I think the dress is a little old fashioned compared to the more popular dress styles today. I may have looked outdated.

I would have loved to wear this if I could fit into it.
Runs very small. I usually wear a 16/16W, and this fit more like a 14. Slim along the hips and very fitted. The zipper was secure and well suited to the material. Beautiful color and material.

Fit great!
The dress will look like it has a little extra fabric/space in the front by the stomach area, however, after eating, the space comes in handy. The dress fit great, the length was perfect with my 4 inch heels.

Beautiful color!!
This dress would have been perfect if I were under 5'8. Not bc of overall length, that was fine, but my torso length made the strapless not quite long enough (as in my nipples would pop out if I raised my arms). I marked this as true to size bc I am less curvy then others. But for me, I have 32 D boobs (so the 4 almost didn't zip), but I'd need a size down for waist and hips. The fabric color is beautiful and classy.

ran small in the rib cage
overall ran small...rented this in a 16 thinking it would fit (I'm normally a 14) even in a larger size the girls just wouldn't fit. Disappointing because it's an otherwise flattering and beautiful dress.

Showstopper!
This dress is super sexy and definitely stands out in a crowd. The dress runs true to size but if you do have a fuller hip and rear then go up a size. The dress hugs the body and is very flattering for all body types. The. Plot is amazing and the fabric is a heavy material. Would recommend this dress to anyone.

Fit like a glove. The color was amazing and stood out against the many black dresses at the event. I received many compliments. The length was a bit long but with heels it was perfect.

Beautiful gown, but it was too small
Beautiful gown! However, I could not get the zipper zipped up. I based my size off of the BADGLEY MISCHKA size chart from their website and was guided to a size smaller than I normally wear. I went with it, but should not have. I would recommend sticking with what you normally wear.

Gorgeous color and tons of compliments!
This dress was actually sent as a backup because the dress I originally ordered didn't work out. I usually wear a 6L in a-line styles and I am a true pear shape so I wasn't sure how this would fit. When I tried it on though I just loved it! Because of my shape combined with the fact that the dress has no stretch in it, it was a bit tricky to sit in and I had to hike it up to give myself a little more thigh room. I also wore a bust enhancer to help fill out the top, but I felt great in the dress! The 8l length was perfect with a 2-3" heel. The dress was really well made and the color was a standout without feeling too over the top.

Nice dress but not my style
This dress was sent to me by RTR because the size of a dress I ordered was unavailable. The fit was perfect however the shiny material was not going to work for a fall outdoor wedding. It would be a perfect for a prom, pageant or formal charity event.

Didn't fit at all. Not made for fit girls with boobs. And even if it zipped there was a ton of loose fabric around the belly area. Yuck!

Gorgeous color and flattering fit, no constant adjustments needed!
I usually don't wear strapless dresses because they require constant pulling up. This dress stays put (even through dancing!) and doesn't require a bra. I'm between 5'3" and 5'4" and I needed almost 4"+ heels (I found nice platforms which were actually comfortable!). I usually wear a size 4 in pants and the 4R dress fit well. The dress is very flattering (lots of compliments!) and doesn't fit too tight in the hips or waist so you can actually comfortably eat at your event! A total winner!

Perfect fit, AMAZING color!
So comfy and light! My original order of a different gown was too tiny so they overnighted me this gem. I felt like royalty in the gorgeous purple color. Compliments ALL night. I am 5'2 and a solid size 2. The fit was perfect. I wore the 2L with 4.5 inch heels and it was great! Didn't trip on it at all. Dress is so lightweight and easy to move around it. So, so fun!

I felt so comfortable and confident!
This dress was so comfy throughout the night! One of the pros was I didn't have to wear a bra because of how structured it is, which is rare with my chest size. The color is gorgeous in person and is an elegant style overall. I'm 5'3" and it just touched the floor in 4" heels which was perfect. Definitely recommend.

Eye-catching statement piece! I had so many compliments of how beautiful the dress was!
Got this for a formal affair. It fit true to size, I'm a size 8, 150lbs and athletic. If you are more curvy you may not like the mermaid style, very firm fitting. But it has some ruching in the tummy area so it hides that well! The log was perfect for me to wear heels (3 inch) love this dress!!

Lots of compliments
I rented this dress for a Mardi Gras ball. I normally wear a 4. The 4 was really tight in my rib cage. The 6 fit good it was a little big up top. But I put some fashion tape. I never wore mermaid style before. I love this dress especially the ruche. Lots of compliments.
