Many compliments on the dress! It fit me very well and I also felt comfortable in the dress.

I wish the dress had been a tad bit longer but everyone said it was the "perfect fit and length". I was able to wear a normal bra with the convertible strap to make it "low cut" in the back. I made it all work and I may rent this dress in the future!

Beautiful dress but needed the next size up

I usually rent an 8 in most formal dresses. I rented a 6L to try since that's all that was available. It fit but was a bit too tight to be appropriate for the event I was attending. If an 8L had been available I would have rented that size and I'm sure it would have been perfect. Beautiful but simple and classy dress...will definitely rent again for a future event in the next size up!

Comfortable & classy

This was a great rental for a black tie wedding downtown Chicago. Just a note: I'm fairly short and this dress was just long enough with flats--I wouldn't have been able to wear heels with it so consider renting a long. (Worn with Lizzie Fortunado Totem Relief necklace). Also, I have a large bust (36DDD) and this dress was perfectly fine without a bra for me!

Elegant and comfortable

I wore this dress to a black tie wedding with a gold and quartz statement necklace. It was incredibly comfortable and easy to wear, and the fabric is thick, elegant and stretchy. However, the Long just touched the ground on me, so I ended up having to wear flats. Would definitely rent this in other colors for future events!

I loved that my daughters rented dresses too and we all felt beautiful. Three cheers.

I'm 5' 10". 62 years old. The dress was exactly what I wanted. Simple and classic. I ordered the 16L and the 18L. I wore the 18. The top was big on me so I taped it down with fashion tape. The 16 fit me in the top but the hip area was tight. I normally wear a 16. My favorite part of the dress was that it was long enough. I wore kitten heels.

They have great customer service! They were late shipping the dress to our home, so shipped to hotel

It was very elegant! The back was my favorite part! I rented the 18, but should have gotten the 14 or 16. It was very big in the shoulders, but comfortable enough to wear to the wedding! Overall, I LOVED this dress and would rent again!

Great for a Black tie wedding in NYC

Fit true to size- I am an inverted triangle so dress fit is always a challenge. Dress fit my shoulders & the material was nice- the back seemed weird & not like on the model- like it needed to be ironed . I did get a lot of compliments & would rent again

Perfect fit, classy without being frumpy!

I needed this dress for a work event, and it was perfect. Ran very true to size. It was fitted but not skin tight and the back was pretty but very appropriate. The material is thick so it lays very smooth. I am a DD and did not wear a bra but if you want one you should wear sticky boobs or a backless bra because the back is too low for a normal strapless bra. I am 5' 8" and wore flats and the length was just right to not drag on the ground.

Prettyy Dress in the Wrong Size

I recently attended a gala and having heard about Rent the Runway I thought I would definitely try this out. Turns out my delivery was slated during the bad winter storm. Long story short, I was not able to receive the orginal dress (ordered in a short size) and was sent this as a last ninute backup. I got a lot of complimetns on it. My only complaint was he length as I tripped over it the entire night. Now I know to order a short size for my next order!

Classic elegance

This is a great black dress that I wore to a black tie optional wedding. I couldn't wear a regular bra with this, but it wasn't an issue because the material is thick and I didn't have to. Very simple in the front, but a beautiful scoop in the back gives it some fun and youth. Very pretty dress.

Classy yet sexy

This dress was beautiful and super comfortable. Very classy dress with an open back added the sexy factor. The shoulders do fit a little big. I'm 5'9" and ordered the long and was able to wear a 4" heel which gave the dress about an inch lift off the ground. This is a dress I am considering purchasing to keep in my closet as a "go-to".

Loved the dress, runs big

The dress is fitted but has a lot of give. I should have gotten a size or maybe 2 smaller. The dress keys moving around. It looked great, but was difficult to keep in place. The fabric was comfy. Length was perfect with 3 inch heels.

Beautiful dress for black tie

I wore this to an awards dinner that was black tie. I fit it nicely. Very pretty dress. Simple. I wore 16R but could have done a long. I just wore lower heels and it was great. The fit was a little big so could have done a 14L. But it it worked and was comfy.

Stunning and Comfortable

This dress was gorgeous and felt amazing to wear. Being a bit more busty, I would've felt comfortable going up one size from my everyday size to have that extra room up top and keep from pulling at the back. However, it was still comfortable and beautiful on and was the perfect length for me. Highly recommend!

The RTR Team really helped me out! They shipped me this dress overnight! So thankful!

The 6S would have been perfect but the 6R was the only size available in the color I needed. It was slighted long but worked with heels. Great dress - very comfortable!

Runway worth classic black look.

This was a great classic black dress with a deep back plunge. the zipper was a little challenging to manage on my own and the built in slip material underneath had a tendency to bunch.

Gorgeous and stretchy formal dress with a great swooping back. Still figuring out what undergarments will work, but the dress is quite forgiving so should be fine. Can't wait to wear it!

RTR team member review.

Chic black gown from Badgley Mischka! Running large, we recommend going one size down for backup. With plenty of room in the bust area, this dress would work well for any cup size. This dress also has some stretch in the fabric through the midsection and hip area to allow for comfortable wear. However, if you are curvier, you may want to consider sizing up due to the fitted hip area. One feature that I love about this dress is the low V in the back; however you will have to wear either a NuBra or no bra with this look. At 58” from shoulder to hemline, this gown is perfect for dressier occasions like weddings or galas. Wearing your hair up with silver accessories will make for a perfect look!

I had a of room to dance and eat!

It did fit a little large and I wore a strapless bra with it. I'm 5'8 and I'm glad I went with the Long dress. The 10 was a little big and the 8 fit but I wanted a little more room to dance in.

Beautiful, simple & sophisticated

This dress was beautiful. I was able to pull it off, but, it did run a touch large in my bust and back. The back of the dress , however, is a dramatic V so the fact that it was a touch large wasn't too big of a deal as it almost looked as though it was meant to drape a bit.

.

8 months pregnant for a black tie wedding Usually wear a 4 - 6R, but this dress (10R) fit perfectly. This was actually a backup dress as my original dress came damaged, but ended up working out. Top was a little big, and low back didn't make it possible to wear a bra- but I would attribute that to sizing up to fit the belly.

Could be very flattering for the right body type!

This dress is very well made and I wish I could have worn it to my event. It was a little too long, even with three inch heels. Also, it is a low backed dress (below the bra line) and my shoulders were not wide enough to fill the upper portion of the dress properly. I would recommend this dress for an hourglass figure.

Got to share a fun evening with friends.

I was a size 16 at the time of this event and had to go with the 18 because it was too snug on my hips, however it was larger than I wanted on the top but not too noticable. I received lots of compliements and it really was comfortable.
