I really liked this dress. It was perfect for the party I attended. The dress is lined which makes for a better fit.

Loved this dress, the sleeves were great!

I really liked this dress, the sleeves were so fun and looked great. The fabric is thicker, body hugging- but flattering. My one suggestion, be careful about bending over, the fabric does gather a bit when you lean forward, so you could have a bit of a wardrobe malfunction- so just keep those shoulders back. But I wore this for work and I loved it. I got a lot of compliments as well. Will rent again!

Beautiful little black dress!

This dress made me feel fantastic. It fit great across the shoulders, bust and hips. The dress is nicely lined and the material it's made from has a little bit of stretch in it. The length was perfect for me and the slit in the back wasn't to revealing. This was my "back up" dress and I wore it first because I was so happy with it. Overall a great dress!

Classy, Comfortable Fun dress!

I got this dress sent overnight as my original dress did not fit well. It came promptly the next day early so I had time to make sure it worked. I really liked it. I typically wear a 6 petite and the 6 regular fit great and was flattering for a shorter person. I would call it understated, classy and comfortable. The sleeves give it the added fun. It's not really a wow dress but it was right for me for the night. ( didn't want to stand out too much). I had my friend pin the top of the sleeves to my bra, because it felt like they could slide down. This worked perfectly and I had no problem. I wore a regular black bra. RTR advisors were great and and was very pleased with all. Have used RTR at least 4 times now and love this service.

Unique LBD

The dress is so fun to wear! The fabric has a good amount of stretch so it's a very flattering fit. It's also pretty heavy fabric and great construction.

Simple but statement!

This dress was perfect for my husband's work fundraiser event. The fit was great and it was a nice simple look - the sleeves were just the right amount of unique detail.

Little black dress

Beautiful dress and very high quality. Because the sleeves were heavy, I agree with other reviews; you either need to wear a strapless bra or safety pin your bra straps. I was very conscious all night long of my bra straps showing. It runs a bit large on the top, better for a larger bust.

Didn't wear it

I didn't wear it. I couldn't keep the sleeves up they were so heavy. Might be cute with a strapless bra off the shoulder. Flattering cut. Rich fabric.

It was a pretty dress. The sleeve make it. The material has a bit of stretch, which was nice, but a 0 would have for me better. I'm usually a 2

Simple and flattering!

I wore this dress to a wedding - it fit nicely and was very comfortable! The sleeves are definitely my favorite part of this dress, and I didn't have problems with them falling down as others have mentioned (the sleeves were a little tight on me so I think that helped to keep them up). I'm often a size 2 but the 0 fit well and I wouldn't have wanted to size up.

Chic and forgiving

Wore this to a NYC wedding when I needed something simple but with some flair, and forgiving after an all-inclusive vacation. This did the trick. Perfect. Sized up one and it fit well, a tad loose in shoulders/bust, and room to eat. I would say TTS overall though. Didn't wrinkle. Low maintenance. Didn't ride up.

Sleek & Fun but Size Down!

I wore this for New Year's Eve and received a lot of compliments. The fit isn't tight, but body-skimming, and the sleeves run larger. I'm normally between a zero and 2 and wore the zero as the sleeves/neckline run wide if you are petite up top. That said, I felt great all night and loved the frilly-fun element of the sleeves which took this from being a basic black dress to something that stood out and felt playful but dressy at the same time. Would definitely rent again and wish I owned it!

The dress makes you look and feel great.

The dress was really cute. I love the neckline. The shoulders slip down a bit but it was not a problem. The dress runs small so order the next size up. One suggestion for the "shippers"- the dress was wider than the hangers, so it was in a pile of the plastic bag. It would be better to hang it on a hangers with some grip or a larger hanger.

Stylist Review

I love this trendy Black Ruffle Shoulder Sheath by Badgley Mischka. Running small with very little stretch, I recommend wearing a size up for your primary size. This style is tight throughout the midsection and tight at the hips. It works best for A-C cups sizes, since it's fitted at the bust. You are not able to wear a standard bra with this dress, so you should wear a strapless bra since the dress has a square neckline. At 5'5, the length hit knee length on me. The short ruffle sleeves are the highlight of this dress and gives off a festive vibe. Pair with black heels and an envelope clutch to complete your outfit!

Received many compliments on this dress!

The outer layer has a bit of a stretch to it, the inner lining does not. I recommend a strapless bra with it to avoid the straps from showing. The sleeves do feel a bit heavy but not to the point where it is uncomfortable.

This dress was beautiful and so classy. Fit perfectly. Love the sleeve detail. This material is very heavy, but that as perfect for a winter event.

True to size. Very classic black dress.

This dress fit me perfectly. It hugged me, but the material allowed for some stretch, so it was comfortable to wear. I did need to wear a strapless bra due to the square neckline.

A great night with husband and friends.

Taking it out of the bag, the dress felt really heavy (there's a lot of material on the sleeves), but once it's on you don't notice it. Top was a little big on me but nothing that caused any problems. Overall a beautiful dress that I received many compliments on.

Comfortable, Classy, & Sassy!

I absolutely LOVED this dress! One of my all-time favorite rentals, for sure. Despite being very fitted, this dress was incredibly comfortable and flattering. The fabric is thick, soft, and stretchy so it hides any lumps or bumps. I have gained about 10 lbs. recently, but this dress complimented my new curves very well :-) and I felt confident around people who had not seen me since my recent weight gain. I received many compliments from both women and men all night long. I would love to own this dress! Fun, classy, and very flattering!!!

Another rental that was fabulous!

This dress fits like a dream. It hugs you nicely without being inappropriate. The neckline and sleeves fit beautifully and didn’t budge without feeling snug. I would rent this dress again.

Comfortable, forgiving, flattering dress!

This was my backup dress, but when I tried it on it looked so much better than the dress I anticipated wearing. I am a true size 12, apple shape, 36DD chest, 5’7 and weigh 160. This dress fit so well, very fitted but not tight. You will probably need shape-wear just because of the fit of the dress. The venue was outside and very hot, but because of the wide neckline and cocktail length it was a very comfortable dress. It was forgiving and flattering, wish I could have kept it!

I'm someone that likes to look their best every single day, comfortable for work & great for after.

Perfect fit, absolutely love the material, very breathable & easy to walk around in. It was a bit hard to put on a jacket over this dress because of the sleeves, but who cares, it's what makes the dress cute!
