Excellent and very comfortable dress, received many compliments on it.
I did wear shaping undergarments as you could see lines with regular underwear. Otherwise, very easy to wear!

Stylist Review!
This dress is a showstopper. With the deep green color and sequins you will be turning head at your event. It was form fitting but very stretchy. It will definitely show off your curves in a good way. For a formal event this will absolutely be on my list of choices!

The dress was beautiful and very comfortable. Compliments all night!
I wore the 16. I could have worn the 14 because the dress has a lot of stretch but went for comfort. The length was perfect. The neckline was also perfect: not too revealing and I was able to wear a normal bra. Great for large breasts (38G). I carried a cute red bag and wore sparkling silver shoes. My husband said I looked like a mermaid!

Excellent dress - very comfortable and the swing neck shows just enough!
The stretchiness was perfect - I'm just shy of 5'7" so stuck in that weird place where an R is too short and an L is iffy - this is the long with 3" heels. It looks too long but there's a train so it wasn't. I must have tugged it down right before the picture - it's kind of adjustable that way. A little sequin pain under the arms after the first couple of hours.

Dancing, feeling luxe and spending a reasonable amount of money! ;)
This dress fit great. Had a soft amount of cleavage with a push-up bra. I got a L so I could wear heels. My only complaint was that alot of people stepped on the small train throughout the night. I had to pinch the fabric near my thighs when I was walking (the reason I gave it 4 stars). But other than that, I loved it!

Flattering and attention-grabbing.
I wore this dress to a black-tie awards dinner. I had originally ordered another more conservative dress, but at the last minute that dress became unavailable, so RTR sent me this one instead. I was concerned it would be too flashy, but it ended up fitting perfectly, and I got tons of compliments all night long. The fit is very flattering, especially around the bust, and I appreciated how I could wear a bra without worrying about the straps or edges showing. Overall, it was a great dress, and I would wear it again if I ever had another black-tie event.

Even the band leader complimented my dress!!
One of my favorite rentals so far! Wore a regular bra, Spanx as usual and was very happy with the fit. I ordered the 12 and the 14 cause my bottom half is big and ended up wearing the 12 cause it fit better on top. However I didn't find the 14 to be any less clingy from the waist down. The fabric is very stretchy and comfortable. But it will definitely hug every curve, which I don't mind, but if you want to hide bumps, there is no ruching so be aware. I got SO many compliments and knew without a doubt I was the best dressed in the room! The bartender and even the band leader complimented me! The color is a deep forest green just like it looks on the site. I'm 5'4" and the regular length was perfect with 2.5 inch heels.

Elegant dress for a Christmas Hunt Ball.
Elegant and glamorous. Men loved it! Stretchy and comfortable, although a little painful under the armpits where the sequins poked. I wore full body armor Spanx! Dress arrived beautifully packaged and on time, clean and in excellent condition. No smell of other ladies' perfume, either! I would definitely rent again.

The band.
This dress is just gorgeous. I NEVER wear low-cut tops, and this one just barely met my standards for decency, but was still very classy and elegant. I did wear a strapless bra, but it could probably be worn with almost any regular bra.

Absolutely loved this dress. Beyond sparkly, classy - great neckline and was a perfect pick!
This dress was absolutely perfect for our Christmas military ball. I actually normally wear a size 20 but decided to get both the 20 and the 22 because I am 19 weeks pregnant. The 20 actually fit as well but I liked where the 22 hit on the floor and didn't accentuate my almost 5 month belly ;) It was absolutely comfortable, sexy but modest, and SO easy to move, sit, dance, and relax in. Such is the way with all sequin gowns, there was a little rubbing under the arm but certainly nothing painful or scratchy - just a note if you're super sensitive. I would wear this dress again ANY day. Gorgeous fit, color, and sparkle!

received several complements on the dress and it was the perfect color for Christmas
others have said this dress runs true to size and is stretchy. I usually wear a 10L, which they were out of, and so I got 8L and 12L as backup. good thing, since even the 12L was slightly tight, and I did not find it particularly stretchy and the zipper bottom would not lay flat in the back, probably because it was pulled a little tight across my body. Also, it is not nearly as long as I expected. With 2" heels it was only brushing my instep in the front. Wonder if the dress has shrunk a bit having been cleaned? all that said, it is a spectacular dress.

I did not wear this one.
This dress is absolutely beautiful. I did not get to wear it though - I ordered the correct size but it was just not flattering on a plus size woman. It was fitted through the torso and thighs and even with Spanx it wasn't working. Not the dress's fault - it just wasn't right for me.

This dress was great for a New Year's Eve party!
I wear an 8 or a 10, so I ordered both. I am 5' 7 1/2" and I wanted to wear flats so I ordered the regular. It just brushed the tops of the shoes. The size 10 fit better in the shoulders and arms and was slightly longer, but the overall fit was better with the size 8. The dress draped better when it was a little more snug. The color and the neckline are beautiful, I got compliments all night. You can wear your regular bra with the dress and I wore medium control shapewear because it is close fitting. It is stretchy and comfortable all night. It came one day early and in good condition. This was my first time using rent the runway and it was a great experience.

I felt like a celebrity in this sparkly, green , sequined dress!!! perfect dress for new years eve!
the fit was perfect..the dress was exactly long enough with 1.5 in heels. my arms are a little big so the inside of the right sleeve itched me during dancing but i was having too much fun to care. there is a little bulge, very tiny though, were the zipper seam starts in the back. i have a little belly since my daughter was born and i think the sequins really helped that not be noticeable, and the control top panty hose! the black liner of the dress hangs out about an inch lower in the front but not the back..by the end of the night i had my shoes off and was dancing away the night..it was awesome.. everyone called me a mermaid and random women came up and complimented the dress all night long. and i told them all about RTR! Definitely wear you hair up for this dress

The drape on the neck adds elegance to this otherwise simple dress, making it really fancy. My fave
The dress is really simple, but the cut is really nice, and the skirt drapes really well. I loved the swish and how the material felt. The neck is by far the best part of the dress. I originally had this as my backup dress but I loved it.

Pretty dress
This ran slightly large. I could have gone down a size. I wish I would have ordered a long- it was a bit too short even with a 2in heel. Unfortunately the slip stick out a few inches at the bottom and I had nothing to pin it up with. Have some tape or pins just in case.

Mardi Gras in SWLA...Need I say more?!
The fit is definitely true to size. I am 5'3 and was very worried about this dress being too long, as most things are. It was actually a little too short for my liking. With about 2 inch heels the dress was off the floor by about 3-4 inches. Totally not a big deal because I wore it to a Mardi Gras ball and avoided tripping on it all night, but I definitely would have preferred it a couple inches longer. The dress is very comfortable, probably my only complaint would be that the inside of my arms were raw the next morning from rubbing against the sequins all night.

This dress had just enough sparkle without going over the top for a black tie event. Just perfect!
This dress was exactly what I needed for a gala at the art museum. I was afraid that it would be too tight around my chest or stomach, but it was just perfect! I wish I could have worn flats with it, just because I don't really like heels, but because of the length, heels were necessary. A perfect, glamorous dress that isn't too "in your face" because of the color.

This dress is AMAZING
I wore this for a Mardi Gras Ball and the color, my goodness it was beautiful. The fit was perfect. It's not as "clingy" as I thought it would be which was something I did Not want. I had a backup (which was ultra gorgeous too!) dress just in case this green dress was too clingy and uncomfortable. It was so easy to wear and the color was GORGEOUS. The lining was soft and the sequins didn't rub. I got a regular and was able to wear 3 1/2 inch heels. This dress was the centerpiece so accessory wise I just went with a simple drop earring and no necklace. I highly recommend this gorgeous dress.

I loved this dress! It was so comfortable, with a nice amount of stretch, and the dress was really flattering for my hourglass figure. The sequins kind of itched my arms but that's to be expected. The color is stunning!

Timeless elegance, comfortable - you'll feel beautiful
Wore in emerald green to a black tie party. I received compliments non-stop. Perfect fit stretchy fabric hugs curves. Comfortable to dance in all night. Cowl neck is always flattering for small busts. I'm 5'4" 130 lbs, with a 34A bra size, 30 inch waist, 39 inch hips). I could've worn the size 2 also (not much difference), but the 4 fit so well that I didn't even try the 2 on until after the event. Received Ben-Anum deco crystal teardrop earrings as my mystery bling. Perfect match for the dress and went well with a choker I already owned (from Charming Charlie). The earrings were heavy but I could keep them on all night. However I was relieved to remove them at the end of the night. Added black satin opera gloves. Wore with 3.5 inch heels (only tip of shoes showed). Could've worn 5 inch heels too but I wanted to be more comfortable.

This is the most comfortable dress - a great fit and lined in the softest material! The length (long) was perfect as I am 5'8" and wore 3" heels; the dress whispered the floor. It was not too heavy and moved with ease.

Gorgeous dress, but unfortunately too short!
I am 5'6" and unfortunately, the Regular length was about 4 inches too short for me. The gown hit just above my anklebone and it looked quite silly as it clearly should be floorlength. I wasn't able to wear it but it was a lovely dress. Color, fit, and neckline were all as pictured. It's a shame I didn't order the Long. Next time!

Great dress! Fit is amazing (esp for hourglass figures!), color stunning + forgiving material
This dress is AMAZING, especially for your curvy ladies out there. I am a 34DD/34DDD so I have a hard time finding dresses that are tight-enough not to make me look bigger than I am but still comfortable (and not obscene re: cleavage). This fabric of this dress is very forgiving and the color is BEAUTIFUL, even better in person than it looks on the website and photographs really well. It was originally my back-up dress and I ended up wearing it because of the stunning color and comfortable fit. You can also wear a real bra with it!! I did find it a little short - I'm 5'5 and ended up wearing flats instead of heels because it was too short with any type of heel. I didn't mind at all since I was going to a ball and wanted to dance, but if you want to do heels keep that in mind! It's also a heavier material so I think it would be too warm for any type of spring or summer event if you were going to spend time outside, but it was perfect for winter.

Formal Ball
I can't say enough about this dress. Very elegant, very comfortable, absolutely amazing color and glitter. The picture just doesn't do the deep emerald color and shine of the dress justice. I wore this to a formal ball and had many compliments. This dress is a clingy, stretchy dress, and the 14 size just showed all my unwanted wrinkles. The size 16 fit beautifully and hung much nicer and was much more flattering so if you are a larger body type, you would be happier sizing up, IMO. I absolutely loved the neckline, and so did everyone else....it's low, but not terribly so, and with a black (normal) bra with just a bit of a low profile, it was perfect. I could not get a petite in this dress for the weekend I needed, so I went with the regular. I wore it with 2 inch heels (which is all I can tolerate) and it was a bit long for me. If worn with higher than 2 inch heels, it would be fine. Truly was one of the most flattering (and comfortable!) formal dresses I've ever worn.

Sexy but Appropriate!
This dress was awesome for a wedding. It's stretchy so it was super comfortable to wear. I received compliments all night long. The only negative was the sequins kind of hurt under your arm but thats just wearing sequins in general but aside from that it was awesome. I loved this dress!

Beautiful and flattering, but short.
I am 5'6" and curvy, I generally wear a 14/16 in dresses so I ordered the 16 and 18 to be on the safe side. The 16 fit perfectly everywhere except length. It was about 4 inches too short. The 18 fit well but wasn't as flattering and was still short on me so I wore the 16 and just bought cuter shoes to show off. It didn't really give me the look I was hoping for as I thought I would have a floor length gown but it ended up working alright for the fundraiser I was MCing. If you're over 5 foot, I would recommend getting the long instead of regular.

You'll feel like a movie star all night
This is my second Bagdley Mischka of this line (See Award Winner gown too), and it's a a fave of mine. The sequins don't scratch, the fit is perfection, and it's so comfortable I could have slept in it. You don't need any special undergarments, you don't even need a bra - the stretchy fabric provides some support. I got so many compliments all night. You'll feel like a movie star. There's a slight train my husband kept stepping on, so you'll wanna be aware of that. Would rent again for sure!
FatimaNovember 19, 2015
thanks for the review, you look great! is the neckline very low?
FatimaNovember 19, 2015
and is the back open? i know the other Bagdley Mischka green dress (the award winner gown style) has a dipped back, but I haven't found any images of the back of this dress.

I attended a "Vintage Hollywood" themed party. This dress was absolutely perfect for the event!
The color is stunning. The material is lightweight and the sequins are not scratchy. I have a pretty athletic body and small bust; this dress did a great job giving me serious curves! I received so many compliments.
