Couldn't wear it.

I couldn't wear the 8 or 10, neither fit through my hips. I'd say this cut is for women with slim figures.

Amazing dress!

The fabric has a wonderful shine that flatters at every angle. The fit was spot on. I received compliments all evening.

Very flattering dress! Beautiful material, runs small. Order up.

Beautifully photographed. Very form fitting. I generally wear a 0, but I wore the 2. I could have easily worn the 4. I could not bend over to pick things up off the floor, but that's the price of beauty sometimes! Length worked well with 5 inch heels.

Loved renting from RTR

The length and overall material was fantastic. I didn't wear this dress because it was a little loose in the bust area, but others may not have this problem. I loved the way I looked in the dress, just didn't feel comfortable wearing it to a Marine Corp Birthday Ball feeling loose on top.

Felt like a star

Gorgeous gown. Wore to formal holiday gala. I felt like Jessica Rabbit channeling my inner Mariah Carey for a performance on stage. I received so many compliments. Would rent again. Fit like a glove--- I couldn't really sit comfortably but I liked it tight. I wore the L and 3 inch heels and the length was perfect.

Amazing dress. Easy delivery and return!

This dress was absolutely perfect for the Military Ball I wore this to. I usually am a size 4 but that size was right for me in the ribcage area so I chose to be a little more comfortable in the 6. The size 6 was a little too big in the hips but all in all I loved my experience. I would definitely rent again from RTR. I'm so glad I got a backup style as well bc I got to compare both on me and pick the one I looked better in.

The RTR customer service is absolutely outstanding!

This dress is stunning on. I tried on the 8 long and the 10 R. The 8 long was so tight around my thighs that I couldn't bend and it was too long even with 3 inch heels. The 10 was so much comfortable and easy to move in.

Beautiful Classic Dress! Hollywood style glamour!

I am a true pear shape (14 on bottom and 10 on top) and squeezed into the 12 ...as there was an issue with the shipping on my other choices. A 14 would have certainly fit better in the hips but would have been huge in the bust. The regular was too exact on length for my height. The long definitely would have been a better option. Regardless of the snugness and length, the dress was a show stopper and I received compliments all night. I will definitely rent again!

This dress was perfect for a formal event. I received so many compliments and absolutely loved it!

The dress fit pretty true to size. The top is a little more snug. It is great to wear without a bra if you're feeling daring. The dress is very classic and flattering.

Beautiful dress--couldn't wear personally due to narrow fit through hips/thighs.

This dress is stunning, but just not the right design for anyone with curves. I'm not overly curvy, either, but have full thighs/hips. No chance of getting this on over my thighs/hips in a 10R, even though my dress size is an 8 or 10.

Gorgeous dress! Hugged in all the right places!

This dress was so fun! It fit true to size for me, but I wish I would have gotten the long as I had to wear short heels. I'm 5'6" and my shoes showed in 3" heels. I think the long would have been perfect. It was a beautiful dress!

The bottom of the dress is nicely cut

The dress itself was pretty. I am normally a size 4 and read that the dress ran small so I ordered a 4R and a 6R. The dresses did not fight me right. I ended up wearing another dress that I ordered from RTR. The dress fit nicely around my butt but there was a lot of extra fabric on my lower back and chest area. Overall, the dress was pretty but not for my body type. I think the dress would look great on someone with a bigger bust. If I gained 5 pounds it might have looked better. The 2 would have been to small.

Loved it!

This was my back up dress as I was afraid my first choice wouldn't fit (the backup size wasn't available for the first dress), I am so happy I got this one as it was perfect! It does run small and I had to wear the larger size, but it looked great. (Order up one size than your regular) It is tight in the mid section but after a little bit it gets better! I am 5'8 and wore 3 inch heels and the long was still perfect. I received many complements and the dress looked great!

Black Tie Wedding Success!

I wore this to a black tie wedding and it's exactly what I wanted. The shape was so flattering and hugged my body in all the right places. I got so many wonderful compliments. I ended up wearing the 4L because with my heels it ended up being the perfect length. The one thing I will say is watch the train on this dress because it is easy to step on/for other people to step on it.

Beautiful Dress

Rented this dress last minute due to a UPS screw up. RtR team was extremely helpful in finding me a backup the night before my event. Dress is beautiful, runs a bit small, and has a long train so make sure you wear some tall heels or you'll be stepping on it all night. Overall, happy with my choice.

Perfect dress! So classy

I rented this dress for my husbands Marine Corps Birthday ball! I absolutely loved how classy it was! I'm 5'0 and ordered the regular length based on how high my heels were, and it was still about 3 inches too long for me. I'd definitely order the petite length next time! I got so many compliments on this dress and I love how it complimented my husbands uniform!

Fabulous dress! Perfect for my gala!

I loved this gown! I could have never found something like this where I live at a reasonable price, so I'm so thankful for RTR! I ordered the 4R and 6R. I went with the 4 because the 6 made my hips look way bigger. It was a bit snug- not a dress to wear if you want to eat a ton of food. However, no bra was necessary, and some Spanx kept everything nice and smooth.

Sexy & elegant!

I LOVED this dress! This was my first RTR experience, so I was a bit nervous, but the reviews for this dress were all great, and now I know why. I'm 5'5" 125 lbs, athletic build, and the dress fit like a glove. Only issue was that the dress was slightly long, so if you're on the shorter side, go with the short! I received so many compliments, and I felt so confident all night long.

Gorgeous dress! Runs small though.

I love this dress so much. I ordered three and picked this one. I got so many compliments on it. It DOES run pretty small. It's made to be form fitting through the waist and hips. I am normally am 8. I got a 10R, and it was pretty tight!!!! There is plenty of room in the chest, so large chested ladies should be okay. Make sure to order up, and maybe even consider getting a backup size two sizes up. Otherwise it may be hard to breathe all night haha.

Red Carpet Show Stopper

Wore this for a red carpet movie premiere. It was the hit dress of the night. Strangers stopped me on the street and at the after party. Runs small and there's absolutely no give with the material. Zipper is awful, like all Badgley Mischkas. But I'm happy I was able to squeeze myself into the smaller size, as it accentuated my curves and felt very sexy. Couldn't be happier with this dress. <3

Everyone's compliments on my dress!

This dress definitely runs small. Normally I am a size 8, however the upper body part of the dress just wouldn't zip up all the way without me going up to a size 12, which fit like a 10. The dresses I originally ordered were both two small and after speaking with RTR, my replacement dresses arrived the next day. Overall, this was a great experience! And I will be using RTR for next years gala.

Gorgeous black dress

Originally I thought I wanted a dress with a little more impact but the cut of this mermaid dress was so flattering that it turned out just fine!! I'm 5'3 and it was a tad bit long but other than that the fit was perfect and I enjoyed wearing a classy beautiful dress!

Formal and dramatic

I added a lace shirt under the dress because i hate my arms, but the rest of the dress was nice. It was really tight everywhere but didnt look tight on the oitside. The ruching was forgiving and tbge length was good. Im 5'1 abd wore 5 inch heals and this still was on the floor- which i like because it feels more formal. It was long enought to be dramatic but not long enough for me to trip!

The fit was perfect. Im 5'7 and was a little iffy about renting the regular and not long, but it was absolutely perfect. It also gave me curve appeal which os nice considering I have very small hips.

Gorgeous, classic gown

This dress was so beautiful! I ended up wearing a different Badgley Mischka dress only because I wanted something more colorful for my event. However, this dress is a very flattering shape with the sweetheart neckline and mermaid skirt. I tried on the 0L and would have had to wear tall heels with it, but it wasn't so long that it would have pooled on the floor and changed the silhouette. Also, the top is structured enough that even though it was a little loose on me, I wasn't worried it would fall. I would recommend steaming the dress if you rent it, otherwise the creases are noticeable!

Not flattering

The dress is made for someone with little curves . I'm.5’0” and 108 lbs and the dress did not valued my body, there was a lot of loose fabric on my waist and the cleavage was odd

Perfect dress - fits really well! Beautifully touches the ground in front and longer in the back. It was a little long on me with 3 inch heels so purchased 4 inch and that really helped with the length.

I loved the shape and feel of this dress. It was really unique!

I loved the look of this dress, but it was not as easy to wear as anticipated. The fabric did not have any stretch. I had to gather the fabric at my hips in order to sit down. The length was a bit too long, even with 4.25 inch heels. But, I'm 5'3 so I expected that. Gorgeous dress and tons of compliments!!
