Comfy Halloween costume

Love how true to size this style was like the majority of BM dresses and gowns. I'm only 5'1 and the dress hit a little past my knees. Was tempted to go with sleeveless version of this dress but glad I went with the sleeves. Super comfy sequin dress for a miss universe costume

Need spanx or a flat tummy

The dress is beautiful and fit well except for the dreaded midsection. If you don't have a flat stomach or feeling bloated, DON'T DO IT. I sing so the super duper control wasn't an option for wearing the dress, otherwise, it would have worked perfectly. I would not have been able to wear a regular bra of course because the back is low. I'll be training hard to try this dress again in February and March.

Stylist Review

Classic, dramatic, and so flattering. This dress does well for nearly everyone and every body type. The only ladies who might have an issue here are those who are larger up top, because this dress does not work with any strapless or standard bra. You will need to go with a NuBra or a longline bra. Otherwise, this number hit me at about my knees, and had just enough stretch to keep me feeling comfortable. The overall fit of the dress is pretty figure hugging, but somehow makes you feel super confident rather than self conscious. Pair with some black accessories and have a ball!

Fun and sparkly!

I really loved this dress! The back was extremely fun and flattering...this dress definitely stood out! I had to go with my larger back up size because the lower half of the dress was just a bit too tight over my butt- but the top ended up being a bit bigger/looser than I would have preferred. The shoulders felt too boxy to me, but that was something only I noticed. Overall the fit worked for me, and it was comfortable all night. I got a lot of compliments, and I think this dress was a great choice to add a little bit of fun to a more formal affair!

Attended a formal wedding in Miami Beach and wore this dress. Got TONS of compliments! Stunning!

My body type: 5'8" tall, 32B bust, "boyish" straight figure, 128 lbs. Pros: SUPER COMFORTABLE! Easy to sit, stand and dance in. Has just enough stretch in but not a stretchy/clingy dress. Also not too short, hits right above the knee. Perfect for attending a classy, dressy formal evening wedding reception party. Would highly recommend. Cons: None.

The dress fit beautifully. I probably could have worn the 4, but I liked the extra wiggle room in it. The drape in the back was gorgeous.

The dress went perfectly with my birthday theme of Great Gatsby

My hair keep getting attached to the sequins when it was straight so I had to curl my hair. The back of the dress is beautiful. Although the dress was not the same I originally asked for, I still managed to make it work for my dinner.

So many compliments

I rented this for a NYE party in Dallas and was not disappointed!! I was worried about how low the back would be but it falls to about bra strap level on me which was the perfect amount. Great dress to dance the night away.

A Show Stopper

The dress was really pretty on I normally wear 16 I got an 18 regular the sequins are a bit tight and can be unforgiving. However the dress overall fit pretty good the length was good and the sleeves were very fitting the only negative comment that I have is that the back is very low and you need to wear almost no bra with that dress.

This dress is a showstopper!

I absolutely loved this dress and felt fabulous in it! It is beautifully made and hung perfectly in the back without falling off my shoulders. The dress is stretchy, hit me mid-thigh and was comfortable to sit in. The only downside, which I didn't realize until I took it off, was that my collarbone was a little bit chaffed from the sequins rubbing. I wore this to a casino night fundraiser and would highly recommend it!

Perfect for a fun but formal New Years!

Loved this dress, especially the back. I usually wear a 4/6 in dresses but ordered a size up (8) as my backup and I'm glad I did. I felt so good in this dress and got compliments all night even though it was a bit out of my comfort zone with the sparkles!

Officially sequins obsessed

This dress was a big hit! Everyone raved about how beautiful and glamorous I looked. The gold color really makes it stand-out. The dress fits nicely over all, but I would maybe suggest sizing down for your backup, especially if you're smaller in the waste. It's very stretchy, so even if you're curvy, the smaller size would probably just accentuate your shape. The entire dress is sequined, so be aware if you have sensitive skin. Inside, it didn't bother me, but the outside scratches when you touch it. The side zipper made it super easy to put on without assistance. The whole dress was fitted, but allows room for a bigger bust, waist or hips. Because the dress itself is so flashy, and the back is low cut and sexy, the high neckline, longer length and 3/4 length sleeves add some formality and class so that you could still wear it to a more professional/family event. I would wear with simple jewelry and heels. As for my measurements; 13" from shoulder to shoulder, 13" from shoulder to waist, 20" from waist to knee, 17" from hip to knee.

I wore this for my birthday which also happens to be New Years Eve.

There was no cons to this dress. It was absolutely beautiful and it made me feel like a QUEEN! A queen I say! Definitely not the dress for you if you need to have free range of movement but it was comfortable. Perfect dress for sitting down and looking pretty.

A real look-at-me number. Dazzle, comfort & compliments -- a winner!

I wore this for a large reception / dinner / auction with lots of milling around. Some of my best-dressed acquaintances were crazy about this dress and I got tons of compliments. My husband was totally gaga, about it too! The size 4 was a perfect fit, though I usually wear an 8 dress. I didn't try the 2 because I didn't want to go shorter. A thread or two was out of place; no flaws really. The beads were not itchy at the sleeves due to a really soft liner. The dress was completely comfortable all evening; not stiff at all, didn't ride up. (I wore a bra/panty/backless combo thing for underwear -- don't know what you call it!) The side zipper is kind of a pain to close while the dress is on; you can keep it up and slip in and out of the dress easily due to the open back. I would happily rent this beautiful dress again and in other colors, as well. Oh, and GREAT service from R&R. I'd ordered a Missoni blue knit which was pretty, but the shade of blue wasn't right for me. I called before 3, the stylist helped me find this dress, and I had it by 10AM the next day. THANK YOU!

I usually wear a 6 but I'm curvy so the 8 fit me much better. I wore this for an arts gala and I was definitely the most sparkly guest! I received so many compliments. Plus it was comfortable to wear all night!

I got to try this on in the store in Vegas and loved it! I didn't think I would like the sleeves but they were perfect. The sparkly gold was perfect in Vegas. It fit my body nicely, was the right length and everything. Loved this dress!

Good cause, great entertainment.

The dress is beautiful, one I enjoyed wearing as I would never have bought. The dress is shorter than I expected. Also, fit me tighter in belly but looser in the hips. I received a lot of compliments on the dress. Can't go wrong with gold sequins.

Super fun dress

This dress was so much fun to wear. The material was stretchy and comfortable, but the sequins make you feel like a million bucks. My only gripe is that the back was so low that I had to wear a stick on bra. That wasn't nearly as bad as I expected, but it did give me some weird lines. (I have a friend who wore the same dress and was able to tuck the back into her regular bra, but I couldn't get that to work for me).

So comfortable

Normally I avoid elastic/stretchy dresses due to the unforgiving nature.. but this was one of the most comfortable, fun, beautiful dresses I have ever worn. I wore it to a rehearsal dinner, and got so many compliments. It wasn't itchy or painful at all which you usually anticipate with sequins, and I was still able to wear a bra even with the low back.. it was super close to being visible, however, so not all regular bras may work.

This was a lesson in "don't assume".

I had ordered Badgley Mischka dresses before and thought that I knew what size to get and that it would fit. WRONG. This gold dress while beautiful did not fit well at all in either size. So I ended up at Nordstrom's and had to buy a very expensive dress on Friday and find an alterations lady to fix the hem.

So many compliments on the dress! It was a great conversation starter!

I wore the 14, I am so grateful that two sizes are sent, I definitely recommend going one size larger with this one. I did not wear a bra, and it was not an issue. I knew no one but the bride at the wedding I attended and this dress was a great conversation starter with other wedding guests. I was just the right amount of sparkle.

The dress is form fitting with flexibility. The lining inside is comfortable. I don't have a bra on with the dress and my boobs aren't super perky but busty enough that I felt comfortable.

Could have worked buuuut...

I needed something sparkly for my rehearsal dinner. This was one of three options I got from RTR, and it's a beautiful dress. I was worried the low back would show my rolls but actually the back was fine. I would have needed some serious Spanx to pull this off though; the tummy showed every bump. Just a bit snug for my taste but if you're smaller and/or like showing off curves- it's a great option. Pretty color.

You can't beat gold and sparkly!

This dress was form fitting but stretchy. Perfect for dancing and eating! This would look amazing on someone with curves. I wore it for an autumn wedding, so I was happy it had longer sleeves, and the open back was nice while inside. I brought a wool shawl to pair with it while outside due to the back. In retrospective, I wish I wore spandex with it, I was planning on wearing control top nylons since it was October, but the weekend was unseasonably warm.

Elegant wedding. 300 guests.

Dress is a show stopper! (But it is even more sparkly than photos show. Not for afternoon or informal events.) I am between a 6 and an 8. Both fit. Went for the 8 just to be more comfortable. (Young girls: Go for the smaller size!) Got many, many compliments!

Surprisingly comfortable and made this momma feel glamorous!

I rented the 16 and the 18. The 18 was better on length below the booty (I'm curvy), but felt a little big in the shoulders for me, so I wore the 16. Both dresses were missing the weight that was mentioned in other reviews (to keep the drape down in the back). I was still able to tuck it into my bra strap to keep it from showing, so it was fine. The zipper on the 16 (didn't check the 18) was a little bunched on the inside (you can see it below my hand in the picture), and the lining slipped up my legs/hips when sitting (might have been avoided in the 18). However, I received a ton of complimets on it, and definitely stepped outside of my comfort zone. This momma felt super glamorous for a night!
