The dresses came the day they were expected and so easy to return!

This dress is so beautiful in person, even better than the picture. It hugs all the curves, but doesn't show the "unwanted" ones. It is true to size and the length with 4" heels couldn't have been better. Touched the ground, but I could walk without needing to pick it up(a first for me)

Pretty Jewel Tone Purple, Good Coverage both front and back

This was one of 2 choices sent as replacements for dress which did not fit. The color is rich with pretty sequin details on the shoulders. I liked that it is lined, you can wear a normal bra and it is modest. Me husband really liked the other dress on me but this one would have been beautiful, comfortable snd elegant for our black tie work party.

Good fit, stylish but not flashy.

This was for a formal banquet, the focus was Alzheimers and we were all in purple. This was comfortable, easy to move in and appropriate. The details on the shoulders added interest.

First time renting, Beautiful color

So this was not the right dress for me but it is gorgeous. I rented for a black tie gala. The dress was a little long but manageable. It looked great on me from the front and back but I have a broad back and full bust, so it was not flattering to my body from the side view, so I wore my backup dress.

My First time renting

I rented this dress for my prom I like the dress but maybe it was too formal for prom but it was nice. It was hard to get off but prom was a success. The dress ran smaller than dresses from Macy's or some where like that. Cause I usually wear a 16 or 14

Beautiful color and details!

Sorry for the not great photo - I didn't end up wearing this for my event but wanted to review it still as I really appreciated reviews with photos when making my selection! It was a bit more fitted than I like for my large hips and cushy belly. Would have worked with some shape wear. The shoulder detail was beautiful, but I have wide swimmer shoulders and it made me feel kind of like a linebacker. Would be best for someone with a straighter silhouette and maybe narrower shoulders. I am a pretty standard Sz 20, and the 22 was fitted (not too tight, just very fitted).

Beautiful beading

This dress is true to size. It fit comfortably and was easy to sit in. My only regret is not ordering the 2L to wear. I'm 5'5" and the dress just barely touched the floor. Luckily, I had some flats to wear. I'd recommend the long for anyone 5'4" and taller who want to wear a heel with it. I loved the color!

Saving this one for another event

This came as a back up courtesy of RTR's amazing customer service. I didn't wear it, but I will. It's a brilliant true purple color. Pretty simple sheath - would definitely need a shaper. It will definitely turn heads. Filing it away for the future!

So many compliments! Such a comfortable gown, perfect for a winter wedding!

I initially ordered the 6R and 8R because that's my general size renting/wearing normal clothes. Both fit length wise but were too tight for comfort. This gown ran like a wedding dress. I then ordered 10R & 12R- this was the 10! Length was perfect with heels, sleeves hung just right! I danced, sat for the ceremony and through dinner... so comfortable the entire time!! I received numerous compliments on this dress, wish I could wear it again!!

This dress fit true to size. It was a little too loose around the armpit/breast area for my liking, but over all it was a great pick!

I really wanted to like this dress but it cut a bit low under the armpit area and so I had that awkward spillage on the sides.

Glamorous but modest

I wore this gorgeous gown to an industry formal banquet. I try to be very modest about sleeveless/ low cut/ low back to my company events. This dress made me feel so glamorous and sexy without showing off skin. It was perfect for my event and probably my favorite dress I've ever worn! I received countless compliments. It did fit snug, and I would recommend Spanx for sure. But it was stretchy so you could move or even get out and dance.

Simply elegant and so comfortable

I wore this to a gala and danced for hours. I was surprised I fit in the size 4. Normally I'm closer to a 6 or an 8, but the 4 worked for a last minute option. It's hard to see the beautiful detail on the shoulders, but it makes it that much more stunning. The other thing I was surprised about was how the waist of the dress hit mine. I have a very short torso and this can cause issues with dresses, but this worked perfectly. Definitely recommend getting this dress. I wanted to own this dress it was so beautiful and so comfortable.

I wore this to chaperone a prom.

This dress is very pretty and fit my modesty requirements for chaperoning a prom. It was awfully long for someone who cannot wear heals, so I would order it in a short size if that's available. I would definitely rent this dress again, but in a smaller and shorter size.

WELL...I LIKE THE FABRIC...

This gown was comfortable for the first 30 minutes. At the end of the night, I was RUNNING back to my room to rip it off! As long as you size up at least one dress size, you will be okay. Also, don't have boobs.

This dress is simple and elegant -- absolutely gorgeous and perfect for a formal fundraiser.

My usual dress size is an 8R but I ended up wearing this dress in the 10R as I am curvy and this dress hugged my hips. That said, the 10R fit like it was made for me and did wonders for my curves. Stunning!

RTR STYLIST REVIEW

This gown is great for a formal event or even a bridesmaid option! The material is thick, however, not so forgiving as it shows every bump and curve. Therefore, I would plan to wear spanks if you'd like. The shoulder detailing is beautiful and so elegant. The color is more violet and rich. Definitely a beautiful rental.

Lovely dress, simple and sophisticated

Got lots of compliments, it was comfortable to wear and looked lovely on. Very simple, elegant and easy to wear. Great fit, smooth finish. Loved it. This was my back up option, but I am so glad it came! I wore it instead of the one I originally thought I would.

Perfect shade of purple!

Loved this dress! Wore this to a black-tie optional event. The color, fit and fabric were all very flattering. I'm usually a 4 but post baby weight, size 6 fit perfectly. Fits true to size. Would recommend this dress to others! Paired it with some silver chandelier earrings and a clutch. Not much else needed with the beaded shoulder-work. A rental must for formal occasions!

The purple is stunning. The shoulder detail is beautiful. This dress hugs all the right places. It does run long. I was wearing my tallest heels. Good undergarments should be wore to smooth everything out.

Tons of compliments!

This dress was so flattering! I had hoped to wear the 14, but it wasn't available. The 12R ended up working perfectly, albeit a tad snug. I am 5'9" and I wish the 12L had been available, but it wasn't, so the dress ended up being just a bit short, but no one seemed to notice. If I rented this dress again, I would choose the long. The cap sleeves were a bit scratchy at first, but I quickly got used to it / stopped noticing. The dress has some stretch which makes it a comfortable choice all night for dinner and dancing. I was so pleased with this dress!

Stylist Review

A flattering fitted bodice shows off your curves while maintaining elegance. Running true to size with some stretch in the fabric, we recommend sizing up one size for backup. At 5'7" in 3 inch heels the long was a perfect length. Keep accessories to a minimum to highlight the beaded cap sleeves.

Classy, covered, and still sexy.

This was actually a hail-Mary backup after a dress I was supposed to receive couldn't be shipped due to it's previous renter (big thanks to the stylists!). I had to attend a catholic mass-wedding out-of-town followed by a nice reception on the water. I got so many compliments on this dress and I adore the way it moves. I have a fairly large bust (34DD) but they looked subtle. My shape was very apparent, but not vulgar. Love Love Love this dress.

Dress was a lifesaver!

The dress was a lifesaver for me since I needed a dress for a formal event and all of my gowns are in storage as I'm in the middle of a move. I was hesitant about doing RTR because I need to try everything on. I was in Vegas for a conference and went to the RTR store at Cosmo and tried a bunch of dresses on. The stylists were extremely helpful but talked me into a long. I'm only 5'5 and I wore a 4 1/4 Stuart Weitzman sandals and the dress was still a bit long. Otherwise the fit and quality are both fantastic. I will definitely rent the runway again!

Comfortable, elegant dress for PBS!

I wore this dress to host the Downton Abbey Season six post-premiere recap show for Masterpiece. I know that's not a typical event, and I had some pretty specific needs: couldn't be low cut, had to be a solid color for the camera, needed a place to clip a microphone. This dress met all of those needs, and was incredibly comfortable (forgiving!) and fit beautifully. I will post additional pics I hope when I get the production pics back!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this dress! 5 stars plus!

The fit was amazing. I ordered a 6R and 4R just to be safe and the 4R was perfect! Badgley Mish is very true to size and this dress just fit like a glove. I'm normally a size 6 but evening wear varies, so if you're normally a 6, then I'd order the 4R along with a 6. I'm a bit larger on the bottom than the top so keep that in mind when you order if you are more busty. Otherwise, this dress is 2 thumbs WAY up!
