Most gorgeous and comfortable dress I've ever worn!

I felt so good in this stunning gown. I am only 5'3 and the regular length was too short. But RTR's amazing customer service overnighted me the long version and it was perfect with 5 inch heels. We were at a black tie event and so many told me I had the best dress there. Someone even said it was the prettiest dress she had ever seen! The dress is lined, making it very comfortable. The fabric is forgiving of flaws. It's all around a wonderful dress. Just go for the long if you're 5'3 or taller.

Fit like a glove! Compliments all night long!

I wore this dress for my church's centennial gala. I wanted to look glamorous and a little sexy without revealing a whole lot of skin. This dress does exactly that. It fit true to size and has a little stretch if you end up eating too much and having a "food baby" like I did. The draping in the back is perfect if you want to show some skin in a tasteful manner. I received so many compliments all night long! I wish this was in my everyday wardrobe!

Perfection

In my opinion this dress fit true to size. I'm 5'8" and weigh around 128-130. I usually wear a 4 and the 4L fit like a glove. I would definitely recommend anyone 5'6" or taller ordering the long (especially if wearing heels). The dress is relatively stretchy, so there's give to it. I thought it was really comfortable! I did notice some scratching under the arms right when I put it on, but never noticed it again the rest of the night. I would wear this dress every day if I could! Photos don't do it justice, it is absolutely stunning. I have never received so many compliments in my life. I HIGHLY recommend renting, you won't be disappointed!

My sister and I neglected to tell one another what we were renting from RTR. It was hysterical!

I could have worn either the 2r or the 4r. They fit the same. I figured the 2 would be a bit shorter for my 5'1" self. My sister and I both got many compliments on both the long and the short looks. #WizardOfOzThemed #Gala #MatchingBySurprise

I felt like a superstar

This dress is absolutely gorgeous, I can't stress it enough. I was so worried it wasn't going to fit beautifully, but as you can see it was perfect. It fit like a glove and is very forgiving. If you're concerned about the little bump here and there, don't be, the stretch and the sequins hide it well. It's absolutely beautiful, I received so many compliments, I'd do it again in a heartbeat. You won't regret this one!

This dress was the talk of the Gala!

This dress was so comfortable!!! However being 5'8 I would definitely suggest that tall girls get a long. I would highly recommend this dress to anyone, I felt so 1920's glamour in it! I even got to use it for a car show photoshoot the next day.

So many compliments!

I ordered this in a 10 and 12 and ended up wearing the 12. Both fit, but I thought the 12 looked better overall. The dress was very easy to wear and I received compliments all night. Due to the low back, I did not wear a bra, but given the weight of the fabric, the look was very appropriate. Really loved this one -highly recommend!

Gorgeous! Loved the emerald color !

Loved this dress! Got so many compliments. Fit like a glove. I'm 5'4", almost 5'5". I had about 2 inch heels on. The size long was perfect! The sequence was not scratchy at all! Would highly recommend this dress! The Emerald/forest green is such a good fall color!

Sequin still a trend

Length dragged the floor slightly but I was still able to dance without tripping. Sequins and deep green color were stunning. Glamorous and I received lots of compliments on the dress. The sequins in the armpit area can get scratchy when raising hands up for dancing, so watch out for that.

Show stopper!

I received so many compliments! If you want to wear heels, I would definitely recommend getting the long. I order the 0 regular and 2 long and the regular was way too short. I'm also 5 months pregnant and this dress was perfect and bump friendly. Very comfy too! Great rental and beautiful color.

Sadly too short :-(

I absolutely loved this dress. The color is stunning and I rented a similar style for another event so I know the designer fits me. Unfortunately, the regular length was way too short. I'm only 5'4" but this stopped well above my ankles and looked terrible with heels. I would definitely rent again for a formal event but get the long.

Everything was perfect!

I wore size 16 R, my height is 5'5" so the length was perfect with 2" heels. The dress is slightly longer in back, and I wore a regular bra and just pulled it down lower. There is a small weight at the tip of back that keeps draping in place. Loved the dress and received many compliments.

Stunning Green Dress!

The dress I originally rent was not what I ordered. I couldn't make it work because it didn't fit at all! I freaked out and spoke to Erica at RTR that evening, the night before the wedding I was to attend! She helped me choose this green sparkly number to replace the one I originally rented. It arrived at 2pm (wedding was at 5pm), and when I tried the 6L, it was an AMAZING fit! I immediately felt like a million bucks, and HOLY COW was it incredibly comfortable! From the moment I walked into the ceremony, heads were turning in my direction. At the reception, I had ladies come up to me complimenting my dress, the color, the fit, how thin I am, etc. I didn't mean to take away from the bride's special evening, but I think I did a little! I was so sad to send it back but knew from that moment on that I'd be a loyal customer of RTR. Not only was the dress stunning and beautiful, but the customer service was impeccable.

Because GREEN SEQUINS!!

I needed a dress that was glamorous enough for a formal wedding, forgiving to my midsection (which has carried 3 kids), liked good with red hair, and that I could dance in. This dress was it!! When I tried it on, it was comfortable, fit perfect in the length (I'm 5'8" and wore it with flat sandals), and my kids kept telling me how beautiful I was. And I didn't wear a bra and it still looked great (small chested here) !! When I walked into the ceremony, people turned to see who was coming in, an do literally heard a few gasps, and I got dozens of compliments. At the reception, the photographer picked my dress to be the backdrop for the plate of food. After dinner I danced for over and hour, and never once felt uncomfortable. I think it's safe to say that this was my favorite dress I have EVER worn. Thanks RTR!

If you want tons of compliments--wear this!!

I wore this to work formal function and it did not disappoint. Usually I'm a 8L but since I've put on some winter weight I was a 12L in this. I also ordered 10R, but it was way too short for me as I'm 5 9". I would definitely order an L if you're on the taller side. The dress was in perfect condition and very glamorous. It also photographs really well and was super comfortable to wear. I received multiple compliments and was told how classy and elegant this dress was. Would definitely rent this again...and already reserved my next rental! Thank you MyRTR for truly a wonderful experience! ;)

SO many compliments and very classy dress

I had such a hard time returning this dress. I absolutely loved this dress and got so many compliments. This was my first RTR experience and it was so easy! Dress fit was amazing! The 12 was a little big in places but the length was perfect. I could've gone with the 10L but I'm glad I had some moving room in the 12R. I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone! It was stunning.

Great dress, but short!

The dress was so flattering and I got tons of compliments. I typically wear a 10-12, depending on the fit. The 10 was on the tight side, so I could have worn a 12. I'm 5'4 and rarely find dresses or pants to be too short, but this dress was SHORT. It didn't touch the floor, even barefoot, so I'd rent again in a long.

Compliments all night long!!

This dress is hands down the most comfortable gown I have ever worn! I am 5'5" and 149 pounds- the size fit perfectly, it does have some stretch which is great for the form fit! It's classy and gorgeous on!! I was able to wear a regular bra and tuck a small amount of the fabric into my bra to hide it. I will definitely order from rent the runway for every event from here on out!! 10 stars! :)

Sparkles!

This dress made me feel like the "belle of the ball." I received so many compliments. It is an absolutely stunning gown. I had the 4L, which worked well for being 5'6 with 3 inch heels. The dress is stretchy, so go with your regular size or one size down.

This dress fit wonderfully! The length was ideal. Many people complimented the dress. The only con to the dress, the dress shows every curve- even those tummy areas we all try to hide.

Prohibition Ends at the #JPLSpeakeasy Holiday Party

I rented this gown for my companies 1920s-themed holiday party. And I must say, it was such a pleasure to be wearing a Badgley Mischka dress! As far is fit is concerned, I rented a size 0L and 2L, but ended up wearing the 2L just because it was a lot longer when wearing heels. I loved both of the fits, especially the 0L but the length was too short. If you are at minimum 5'6" or up and plan on wearing heels I recommend renting a 'long' version of the dress so your shoes don't show as much. I didn't even bother wearing bra since the back is exposed. I didn't feel like dealing with the placement of the straps all night. This sequined dazzler made for a beautiful grand entrance and a hell of a showstopper. I received non-stop compliments ALL night (this is not an exaggeration) and I just felt so elegant and pretty! As pictured, I wore my hair in pin curls along with a 1920s-styled headband and I rented beautiful earrings to complete my look. Pros: - The color and all-sequins are to die for and make for a great statement - The back of the dress is longer - has a little bit of a train to cover heels - Photographs well (with or without flash) - Exposed/low back makes for a subtle show of skin - Dress is very comfortable and not heavy - Fabric is thick enough for you to get away with not wearing a bra if you're smaller chested Cons: - Sequins are a magnet - they would get stuck on other people's clothing while I was close to others during photos - The length was shorter than I thought it would be - I'm 5'8" and my shoes were exposed in the front of the dress (the back of the dress is longer than the front)

I loved this dress! It made me feel so pretty and gave me the confidence I needed to totally let loose at the wedding. It was really comfortable and I never found myself fidgeting or adjusting the dress even after a night full of dancing. My only sad moment with this dress was returning it!

Elegant and comfortable!!!

This was my first time trying RTR and it was perfect end to end experience. I chose the 6R with 4R as my backup. The 4R ended up fitting me better with a more snug fit. I felt amazing in the dress and received so many complements during and after the Gala. I was captured in this pic dancing with my Dad which I will treasure forever! Thank you RTR for this service!

Such an amazing dress!!

Loved this dress! It was absolutely stunning! It fit great and was so flattering. The color was beautiful. I got so many compliments on this dress. Not really anything bad to say about it except I wore my hair down and it got caught in the sequins a couple times. Also the sequins rubbed my right arm after a while but I would rent this dress again in a heart beat!

Absolutely loved this dress. Really flattering and surprisingly comfortable. I wore it to my winter formal dance and it was perfect for the dance. It fit a little larger than expected so I went with the smaller size. I would definitely rent this dress again solely based on how it boosted my self-confidence! I didn't want to take it off!

Totally would wear this again. It fits true to size. I didn't wear bra because of the low cut back and no one seemed to notice. It was the perfect fit, length, and look!

I tried this dress on in the store and under my arms were getting really irritated from the sequins. Can you tell me what you did about that?
