VERY LONG!
I got this dress today. I ordered 0R (my normal size) and 2R (just incase) but I can't use neither one of them. They are extremely long. When I researched a dress, I choose "petite" size since I'm 5'1. This dress pop-up so I ordered it. Boy, I should have ordered something else. I'm already wearing 4 inches heels and this dress is still long. I love RTR but this dress was a big waste of money

I got so many compliments on this dress!
It was super comfortable and easy to wear. The sides are pretty low so it was challenging to wear a strapless bra, but you need something. I wore the 2R and it was long. I am 5'5" tall and wore 3.5" heels and it was still on the floor. The beading on the collar is silver. I thought from the picture it was going to be more gold. Overall this is a beautiful dress and was perfect for the black tie wedding.

Stylist Review!
I loved this style! I would have not picked it out myself judging from the photos online, but in person it is very beautiful and very flattering! The color is very vibrant and the material is really lovely. I tried on the size 4R, but it was a bit big in the arms and body. I would have liked to try a size 2R if available, but the jeweled collar may have been too tight at that point. This gown is perfect for a destination wedding or a semi-formal dress code. The color is very springy/summery, so I wouldn't suggest this for a fall or winter event, but it's absolutely perfect for the warm seasons.

My daughter told me I looked like a princess!
This was perfect for me as I am just a few months post-pregnancy and the flow-y style was very forgiving. The dress is long...I am 5'5" and wore 5" heels and that was perfect (thank you other reviewers). This was a formal wedding and I got LOTS of compliments.

Ended up going with a different rental but IN LOVE with this dress!
I ended up going with a different rental for the wedding I attended only because it was a daytime ceremony so this gown would've been a little over-the-top. However, when I got to the evening reception I wish I could've switched in to this one! It was so flattering, I LOVED the fabric and color! I'm definitely going to keep this dress in mind for future occasions and events!

I wore this dress to officiate a wedding for a friend! It was amazing! Compliments all night!
I am usually a size 10 but wore the 8R. I wore wedge sandals to keep the dress from dragging in the mud after the rain. Otherwise, at 5'8", the 8R would have grazed the ground with flats on (which was the plan). The collar did get a little warm in the Texas heat while we danced, but otherwise, the dress was so comfortable and flowy without making me look like I was wearing a sac. I loved it! Would definitely rent again!

Stunning color!
I could have gone with a size 0 as the top was too big and it was really flowy, that's why I belted it. By the end of the night after dancing the beads around the neck and arms scratched a bit but as gorgeous as this dress was it didn't matter. Id rent again just in a smaller size

This dress is a knock out. So many compliments (I almost stole the show).
This dress is ahhhhh-mazing! I would BUY this dress, that's how much I loved it. The color was bright and perfect for a summer wedding. The neckline was incredible (think silver and pearls - which is what I accessorized with). I put my hair up so you could really see the beauty of the neckline and that made a huge difference. The dress flows nicely so dancing the night away is no problem. The material is a little thin, so if you have a tan bra opt for that instead of white. There's a tiny slit in the front but you don't really notice it. I found the fit of the 10L to be a little better, but the 12R was in much better shape and the dress is pretty long as it is. This is HANDS DOWN MY FAVORITE dress I've rented from RTR!

Beautiful dress. The color was flattering and the neckline beading was outstanding.
The dress was really long. I'm 5'2" and I wore with with really tall heels, and it still dragged the ground. The dress was very comfortable and lightweight, so it was perfect for a summer event.

Stylist Review!
The name of this dress perfectly captures the way this style makes you feel! It is such a light and flowy garment you will seriously feel like you are a goddess who belongs on a tropical island. The beading embellishment at the top gives this otherwise simple dress a very beautiful detail. This dress is perfect for vacation and can be worn on women of any size, and a strapless bra is able to be worn with it, as well (always a plus!). I was able to wear a 4R, and the length was perfect. Since the dress is not fitted, it is a matter of personal preference if you want to size up or down. I would probably recommend going up a size since the beaded collar may become a little snug. If you want to wear heels and you are tall, I would recommend going with the long size, as the regular just hit the floor on me. So whimsical and unlike anything I have ever worn!

This dress was perfect for a summer wedding in color and feel!
The dress is absolutely beautiful in person. The color and movement of the fabric are quite striking. The dress falls very nicely, and I would imagine works well on most body types. I typically wear between a 4 and 6 depending on the fit on the hips. This dress ran a bit large, I wore a 4, but wondered if I could have fit into a two it was so flowy.

Walking in the wedding and everyone telling me how stunning I looked after having a baby
Dress was my backup and so happy I choose it. The fit was perfect except a little big by my neckline I could have worn the 10 it is gorgeous in person and would def rent again i am 5'5 and the 12R length it was still a little on the ground even with heels so happy I went with the R. If u want to b a show stopper this is the perfect dress for a Summer formal event

This is a beautiful dress. The neckline is stunning.
I ordered a 4r - my usual size. The dress dips low under the arms. I think I could have easily gone with a 2. With 4.5" heels the dress was the correct length - just hitting the floor. However if going with lower heels, you may want to go with the petite. I did not wear the dress as it was a back up to another Badgley Mischka gown - the Clear Skies Gown (which I wore and loved ). I will likely rent this gown again.

Super easy rental and return process! Love them!
Wore it for a gala and was 6 months pregnant. It was the first time I felt glamorous in a long time. Ran large. I'm a 4 and still wore a 4 with a big old belly. No one even knew I was pregnant, which shocked me! I would definitely recommend this for preggo ladies who want to feel beautiful!

Gorgeous dress for any formal event!
The dress fit true to size and was super flowy and fun to dance in. I paired it with hot pink heels and lips. There was a slit down the middle that I wasn't expecting, but it made the dress easier to walk in. Got lots of compliments and the dress was a hit!

I recorded so many compliments on the color!
I wore this to a formal, outdoor wedding. The color was gorgeous and I received a ton of compliments on it. There is a lot of flowy material in the top layer, but the inside has a fitted liner. In comfortable temperatures, this would have been perfect, but the humidity made it cling and the beading on the collar was a little irritating. I'm 5'6" and this was just above the ground in 2.5 inch heels. A strapless bra was necessary for me, but a small bust could probably get away without a bra.

Lovely dress, just not for me.
This dress was sent to me as an alternate when my first choice didn't fit in either size I ordered. The dress is lovely, but the fit is awkward. The area under the arms was large enough to show undergarments. I think the issue was the fact that I'm short but require a size 12 so the fit was just off for my body type. If you're taller or more slender this dress would be a lovely choice.

While I loved the color and style of this dress, it did run large and my husband wasn't a fan. Would like to try this dress again but maybe in a smaller size.

Perfect for Summer Black Tie Wedding
This dress was light and comfortable, perfect for a black tie wedding in the hot summer months. I am 5'7.5 and ordered the dress in the longer length so it just dusted the floor in heels. The regular length did not look a as good in 3.5 inch heels for my height. The color was beautiful. It definitely hides any body issues but as as result, the only negative would be it sometimes can look like you are wearing a tent, particularly in photos. Depending on how it falls off one's chest, it may not be super flattering -- but you can also cinch it with a belt to give the dress more shape.

The dress fits very flowing and the fabric is luxurious. It was the most comfortable dress I have ever worn. There is a lot of material so size down for your second size. Minimal to no jewlelry is needed because the dress is so pretty.

Strapless bra required. Runs rather long, even with heels so be prepared. Slightly sheer so ensure you are wearing nude undergarments.

Great dress for a gala
I rented this for a Greek-themed gala, and it was great overall. The only place it was really fitted was the neck, so I wore the 2 and wore it with flat dressy sandals. (I'm usually a 4). Nude Spanx and a strapless bra are a must, as the fabric is light. The color was a bit more vibrant in person than in the photo.

This dress runs true to size and over all this was by far the most comfortable evening dress I have worn. The beaded neckline sets the tone that this formal dress but the fit and comfort level is like a sundress.

Everyone dressed to the nines!
The photos of this dress do not do it justice! Do not miss this beautifully made and lovely dress. It is so comfortable to wear, and just glides around your breasts and hips, showing off your nice shoulders. I worried that it would make me look too big (have a curvy figure) but nothing could have been further from the truth. It looked sexy but classy, and people literally stopped me all evening long to ask wear I had found this beautiful gown! It has a Grecian Goddess, ethereal feel to it, and with the beaded neckline, all I needed was a tiny silver clutch and pearl earrings, and I was done. So, so lovely!

Very forgiving gown
This was actually my first choice for a charity ball, but I went with the backup gown provided by RTR. This dress is beautiful, but the lightweight fabric and light color made it look VERY much like a nightgown to me. I felt much more like I was in a mumu/nightgown than in a gorgeous Grecian style gown. Though, the dress is beautiful, AND very forgiving. Might be better for summertime and a tan.

Was perfect for my Mardi Gras ball!
Was very nice and flowy and fit true to size at the top - if I were to rent again, I would definitely add a belt to it to give it some shape. There's no shape to the dress. The neckline and color are AMAZING though and I got tons of compliments. Overall, I would rent this again, but with a belt!

I felt like a princess! So twirly! I got compliments all night!
I wore this gown to a friend's wedding and it was a huge hit! It fit beautifully, and I got compliments all night. I did add a belt at the waist to give me a more defined shape, but on a slender build I don't think that would be needed. The length was perfect for the flat sandals I wore (and I'm 5'6"). This dress is unique and beautiful... I'd definitely recommend it!

Head turner!!
I cannot recommend this dress enough! I was literally stopped by dozens of people- even had people cross the ballroom, just to talk about the dress. Incredibly comfortable and flattering (the angle of this photo doesn't do it justice, really). If you have blue eyes, it will make them pop like crazy, too! My only drawback was that it was a little too long, but if the 10R had been available, it would have been perfect. If you want all eyes on you, this is the dress!
