BEAUTIFUL DRESS!!!!!!

This dress was perfect and gorgeous! I received so many compliments! Just remember that the left side is an off the shoulder sleeve! Very classy and very sexy. Never wanted to take it off! I wore the 2L and with 3" heels it was perfect!

Show Stopping Sparkles and Design!

I found the fit of this dress to be in line with the other Badgely dresses I have worn. However, the length was crazy short! I ordered the long and as a 5'8" person, the hem just barely touched the floor in bare feet. With heels, I didn't love how the dress looked. Otherwise, the dress got tons of compliments and I loved the neckline.

Loved the dress!

This was my first choice for a New Years Eve casino night. I loved the fit and the pleats were very flattering. However I decided to wear the green Badgley Mischka that my sister had rented when she realized it was too short for her.

It was so glamorous!

The fit was great! It was comfortable and fit in all the right places. The only thing I was disappointed in was the length. I'm only 5'2" and with 3 inch heels the dress was a little short. I would suggest ordering long.

Gorgeous color! Fabulous dress!

Nice red wine color with sparkly sequins but not overly flashy. The only problem was the shoulder part kept wanting to ride up and sit on top of my shoulders and I kept having to pull the bottoms back down. The dress is very stretchy and hugs curves. There is slight ruching in the front but not enough to really hide anything. Overall it's beautiful and classy and I was very pleased with it.

It was a comfortable and beautiful dress! The sleeves kept creeping u, though.

Overall the dress was comfortable and true to size. The sleeves were snug and kept creeping up my arms. No had to adjust those periodically.

Last-minute order to chaperone prom - compliments all night from both students and faculty!

Loved wearing this dress to chaperone prom as a teacher. I felt trendy yet elegant, and I got compliments all night long from both students and faculty. Definitely order long unless you are very petite - I'm 5'5", the dress hit the floor with a slight train in flats, with 2-inch heels hit top of my foot (as in picture) with train skimming the floor. Look up size measurements on Badgley Mischka's website - my measurements matched the size 10 exactly and it fit like a glove, so it runs very true to their published sizing. Pros: Fit was impeccable, enough stretch in the material to accommodate some curviness, asymmetrical neckline is very flattering, sequins make the dress stunning in person and even better in photos, perfect for an evening formal event Cons: the thicker part of the neckline (right shoulder) rides up and kept needing to be pulled down, needs help to zip up the back as the zipper would get stuck at seams, sequins can get scratchy under arms and aren't comfortable for cuddling up on the ride home ;)

Dress was fantastic and comfortable. The earrings made it perfect and matched my shoes :)

I am long and lean so the 6r was indeed a little short and the 4L was unavailable (my true size) Decided to wear low healed sparkly jimmy choo with the 'tea length' look. My friends loved it and the color was beautiful.

Great dress. Lots of compliments.

Fit well. Fabric is VERY forgiving. Comfortable. Straps were able to cover the straps of a "big girl" bra (40 C) with wide straps. Also accommodated shape wear nicely. The touching was flattering and his some midriff imperfections very well. I am 5'4" and in heels the dress didn't reach the floor. Would get it for the height you will be and not the height you are. May not be the ideal dress if you are planning on some aggressive dancing as we did. The underside of my arms are a bit raw today.

Loved this dress. I barely recognized myself in the mirror. I've never felt so confident in a dress. I'm usually pulling down things and pulling up others but this dress was a perfect fit. It was also a great length for people who are 5'3'' and had enough elasticity for a large chest and curvy hips. Most importantly, my spanx were concealed without any issue. 10/10 Wish I could live in it.

Beautiful dress, great fit, super VaVaVaVoom!

This dress is even more beautiful in person - the color is a deep rich red that would be flattering on any skin color. Fit was perfect - loose enough to breathe and move but still tight and figure hugging. The first version I got had a small rip in the seam so RTR customer service overnighted another one to me. I didn't end up wearing this because the OTHER replacement dress they sent (for my 1st choice oddly sized dress) was gorgeous, perfect, and fit the theme of the event I was going to a little better. I will definitely rent this dress in the future though!

Perfect but SO short.

I loved this dress.... It was so comfortable and it fit great, but was a super awkward length. I ended up bunching it around my stomach to shorten it further and just wore flat sandals. We were on a cruise anyway with rough seas.... So I'm sure nobody thought anything of it. So rent it for sure but get the long!

Easy to use and cheap!

The dress fit perfectly. I ordered two sizes 2L and 4L. The 2L was what I used and it was the perfect length and size. It was slightly stretchy which was nice. It was a thicker dress so I got hot at times but was very comfortable. I got a lot of compliments.

Sexy

The gown was gorgeously sexy without being low cut. Cut covers a regular bra and bra straps completely. Super stretchy fabric made the fit forgiving and very comfortable. However, if the skin inside your upper arms is sensitive, the gown is not for you. The sequins are somewhat scratchy and did become annoying as the night went on. The back of the dress is somewhat longer than the front, giving a small train effect which was extra elegant.

My Citadel Mom moment!

This dress was everything I hoped it would be. My wish was to match my son's sash, and it did - perfectly! For a Citadel Mom, your walk with your son on Ring Weekend is what you dream about from the day you drop them off at school. Thank you RTR for a fabulous program - affordable, top quality and always on time (both times!) - not even a delay with Hurricane Matthew could put a damper on this event!

Beautiful sparkle!

This dress was gorgeous! I received so many compliments all night. The dress fits true to size and I had to wear the bigger size for extra length. The only downside was the sleeves didn't stay on my shoulders and went up the whole night. Other than that, I would rent this again!

I am 5'7 and fairly busty but this dress fit like a glove. My only complaint is that at 5'7 I wish I would have ordered the long not the regular. Other than that it was a dream. Everyone loved it especially my husband!

Compliments all night!

My first RTR experience wasn't too bad. I originally pick out another gown which would have suited my body type better but the renter before me either damaged it or didn't return it in time. However the staff at RTR sent me some different styles and this one stood out. Wish I got a bigger size but I got compliments all night...I felt like a star. The straps didn't stay on my shoulder but that was ok. I thought the sequence rubbed under my arms but was bearable. Other than that the dress was great. I'm a busty woman but it fit me up top perfectly. I'm 5'4 and got the long but it was dragging...perfect length. I would recommend and I'm definitely a RTR customer!

Sophisticated and Fashionable

This dress was gorgeous! The color was a rich burgundy that was very classic Christmas. The fit was very flattering and the length was perfect for my 5'7 height. The sleeves needed a bit of adjusting throughout the evening. I was able to wear a traditional bra with no issues. Would definitely recommend this dress for a classy, formal look.

Perfect for a New Years Eve!

I rented this gorgeous gown for a NYE cabaret I performed in. It was sparkling, stunning, and the color was perfect for the holidays! I sized up because it's very figure hugging. The interesting neckline was my favorite part of the dress. Many compliments and would rent again!

The delivery was speedy and the customer service helped with all my questions! Lots of compliments!

I'm 5'2", 113 lbs, and wore 4" heels and the dress just barely touched the ground. The sleeves at the top did not go off the shoulder on the 0 or the 2 as it is tighter fit. I danced a lot throughout the night and the sequences did scratch my arms, but I have sensitive skin. Also, the sequences love hair so i recommend having an up-do!

Not as shiny as it appears in pictures.

Fit somewhat snug through the bottom. As a hippy person, glad I went with another reviewers recommendation and sized up to 8. I usually wear a 6. In person the dress is not a sparkly as it appears in photos even in this photo that I posted. The sequins are more matte than I was expecting. I went with a different Bagley Mishka gown that was a champagne color with shinier sequins for more pizazz on NYE. Also the cap sleeves slip up a lot when you raise your arm even slightly. This could get annoying throughout a night of dancing.

Stunning sparkler!

This is a beautiful, sexy, form fitting gown that will make you feel like Jessica Rabbit goes mermaid! I am a petite size 6 and wore the 6R to a NYE wedding. The 8R was my backup given the feedback to size-up, but there was very little difference. The dress has some give and was generally comfortable. I will say that the dress was long for me. I'm barefoot and standing on a fireplace in this photo, and you can see the fabric gathered at my feet! If you are under 5'2", you will need to be in your highest heels! I do not believe a petite version is available. I got several compliments throughout the evening and my husband loved it! It was also great to be in something other than black, as this dress stands out.

I felt like a starlet!

I picked this dress for my first military ball and it was amazing! I decided to wear spanx and my bridal bustier, it worked great. Zipper was a little difficult towards the top since the fabric is so thick but I eventually got it with some help of my husband. I guess since have really broad shoulders that my asymmetric straps kept going up rather than laying flat like in the model's picture. Keep in mind this dress is heavy and depending on your height you will need to pick up the bottom so it doesn't drag on the ground. Everyone that knew me were shocked how pretty this was, and mouths dropped open. If you want all eyes on you I suggest this dress. This would also work if you happen to be dressing up as Miss Scarlet from the game Clue for Halloween.

Perfect Baby Bump Dress!

I was so in love with the fit of this dress! I was concerned with my 26 week bump that it would be too tight, but the dress had plenty of stretch and fit it beautifully! I'm normally a 6 but ordered an 8L and it was perfect although I liked the length of the 10L better. I received non stop comments all night long! Would highly recommend and cannot wait to order my next dress!

Classy and Color!

Loved this dress! Of all my RTRs, it is probably the most comfortable bc of the slip underneath. I am normally afraid of color, so this was a great choice for me. I am 5'9 and wore heels with the long without issue. Highly recommend!

Military ball to remember!

I am wearing a size 8 jeans but sometimes things run big so I ordered the 8 and 10 but the 8 fit PEEFECTLY! My body type, I'm 5'8" (I ordered the long) small waist, big booty and 34D boobs. The dress fit so well!! It looked like it was made for me! The sleeves did come up when I was dancing around or was ups lift my arms but honestly, it was cut even with the sleeves up so I really didn't mind. My only complaints or suggestions would be to wear your hair up. Mine was half up and would get caught in the sequins. Second, the sequins are a little irritating under the arms, but I think that can be expected from sequins in general.
