Stunning fit and look. Runs small.
Runs very small. I have a DD bust and had no chance of zipping this baby up all the way. I wore a different dress same size.

Beautiful!
This dress was stunning- I got so many compliments. I was worried about the length but the regular was perfect (I am 5'7" and wore 3" heels)! It just grazed the floor and I wasn't stepping all over it.

Didn't choose this dress.
Too small at the ribcage to come close to zipping but I have wide shoulders and a size 38 band on my bra.

Classy & Sparkly!
Dress fit well and was easy to walk in with the slit. The dress is a little heavy (with the layering), which was great for a Winter event! The pictures don't do the dress justice because of the lighting; but the dress have a beautiful sparkle with nude/blush sequins under the black lace. No bra was needed with this dress and for a strapless I was happy with how well it stayed up (I didn't have to yank it up). I am usually a size 6, which fit good as well, but the 4 just helped the dress stay put on my hips which was helping in the strapless. This dress was not itchy and did not irritate my underarms as some other sequin dresses have in the past. Overall very classic, glamorous dress- I would recommend!

Very pretty, ran long, and fit like a glove.
This dress was a little snug, but very pretty. I typically take a size 4 and wore the 4R. The backup size of a 6 would have been too big. I had a broken heel and had to use a knee wheeler, so the slit up the front was why I got this dress. I was hoping to wear flats, but i needed a 2" heel since the regular was still very long.

Amazing! Loved the dress and how well organized everything came!
This dress fit like a glove! I ended up going with a size 2 because the 0 was a little too snug. The only thing was that it was a little too long. I'm only 5'2" so even with my tallest heels it was still dragging on the floor a little. Had to do a lot of lifting throughout the night. Overall it's a beautiful dress and I got so many compliments! Thanks RTR!

Didn't wear it as the material was too heavy but it is a stunning dress. It is stunning
I normally wear a 6r but this would probably fit in the 8 for me.

Beautiful dress
The dress is beautiful, but it runs small. I am fairly busty and normally wear a 6 or 8. I couldn't get the 8 within an inch of zipping. I wish I had known to size up.

I ended up not choosing this dress for my formal event. It was too large in the bust area which is surprising since I have a large chest.

Absolutely glamorous
Rented this sexy number for one of my best friend's winter weddings. It was a perfect fit, literally. This was my first Badgley Mischka rental so I was unsure/nervous of the size and fit. My true size was perfection. The dress is slightly heavy but not overwhelming. It was very flexible and it hugged my curves just right. I had no issues sitting, moving or dancing in this dress all night long. Received multiple compliments throughout the evening and the dress photographed beautifully. Needless to say, I was extremely pleased!

Stylist Review
This dress was a perfect fit for me. I usually have trouble with strapless staying up, but this dress wasn't budging at all. It was a bit heavy but not too overwhelming. Should be worn with a strapless bra although I didn't wear one .

Not as expected. Made for narrow body
I am normally a size 4 or 6. I got the 6 and the 8 in this dress. I couldn't even get zipped into the 8! I am 5'3" with 34C and an athletic booty. This dress is simply not made for girls with curves in my opinion. There is definitely no stretch or wiggle room. I had one of my friends try on the 6 (she's 5'9" and very slender with narrow hips and 34A) and it looked very good on her. The fabric is heavy and beautiful. Good for those with minimal curves.

Miracle Dress
I love this dress!!! I have large hips and it totally helped me. I have to say that the top part of the dress is small, which i had no problem there. So, very forgiving in the hips (large). The material is amazing, I tried many dresses and this was by far my favorite, highly recommended.

Comments all evening long.
I'm a curvy girl. No worries though. It was form fitting yet forgiving. It has a sheath, then a sequined layer in a gold/nude color topped with the black layer. The top layer is sheer and has detail work along with some lace. The top has boning but no cups. My bra size is 38D. I was able to barely fit without a bra. A strapless bra would work and still not show because the back is not that low. The slit was flattering. Not too revealing.

Beautiful but heavy
I didn't end up wearing this dress. I wanted it for a cruise to the Caribbean but it was too heavy r to wear in a warm climate. I will definitely order again for a Holiday event.

Perfect for black tie
I received this dress as a replacement after my first dress was too short. I ordered a size 8 but the 6 probably would've been better. The length was perfect. The dress was heavy but super comfortable. At times, I had issues walking without lifting it up because of the slit. I liked the dress, but wouldn't rent again.

Last minute dress choice
The dress is very well-made and while it does have thick fabric it is so classy. I received lots of compliments the whole night and am so glad that I wore it. I had initially received another dress that looked like a disaster on me so am very thankful that I got this one instead. I def recommend it for any black tie affair.

Ended up not wearing it because it was too short :-(
This dress runs short. I loved the print, fabric and style, but there is no way I could wear this dress to the formal event I ordered it for. I'm just shy of 5'10'' and it didn't even come close to hitting the floor for me (even though I ordered the LONG length.) If you're a tall girl like me you may want to reconsider this selection.

Its beautiful but heavy!
Really gorgeous dress made up of 3 layers of fabric; one top lace, next sparkly layer, then satin layer. It was the heaviest, thickest material I have ever worn. Since I was going to an outdoor summertime formal event, I was afraid I would have been too warm so I didn't wear it. Very beautiful though!

The dress fit very well and was much more dressy in person than photos.
It had a nice nude slip attached so it was very smooth to the skin - a bit heavy with all the sequins and material, but not terrible. Easy to sit and walk in.

Beautiful dress with a hint a sparkly under the lace.
Dresses came 2 days before event. Beautiful quality of lace and it fit well. Size up for larger bust. The length of the regular was perfect with my 4 inch heals. Wanted a full length picture but it turned out too fuzzy. The slit is sexy but not too much. Would rent this dress again.

The sparkles underneath makes this dress unique. The slit for the leg is sexy - not too revealing. This was a back up dress - will rent for another event.

It was a beautiful dress. Made for someone who is straight up and down. I'm a size two but I am a 32C and it didn't fit properly.

Back up dress
This was a back up dress sent by rent the runway. The picture they show does not do justice to the dress. I was surprised how beautiful the dress was in person. It had a shimmer to it and felt a little heavy because it was made with great quality lace. I usually wear 0 and some times a 2 depending on the brand. I am 5'3, 106 pounds and a 34C (petite body frame). This dress was big on me. I loved it but constant had to pull the dress up. The length was also very long even when I wore 3inch heels. I think a 0 would have been the perfect size. I must say I am thankful rent the runway sent this dress because my original one did not fit. It was truly a stunning well made dress.

Dress material was nice quality.
I'm a boudoir and contemporary glamour portrait photographer located near Harrisburg, PA. My client is a 0/2, and she wore the size 2 so we could get the gown zipped--the dress stayed up great during the photoshoot. Usually Badgley Mischka's dresses have a bit more 'give,' so I was surprised the size 2 wasn't slightly more roomier, but the dress really did fit her perfectly. http://shannonhemauerphotography.com/

Beautiful, stunning, a show stopper!
I wore this for a black-tie formal affair. It is a gorgeous dress. The has three layers. The nude layer, a shiny sequin layer, and then the black lace. Dress is heavy but very comfortable. You won't feel bogged down. Dress runs small so go a size or two up from your normal size. The dress also runs short. The 16L was not available so I went with the 16R. I hate kitten heels and all the flats I saw were hideous. Lucky me I found some 2.75 inch (not quite 3 inch heels) and it worked out. The dress didn't graze the floor like I would have preferred but it was close enough (a little below my ankle but you could still see my shoes). I would have liked the long if it was available but the dress was too gorgeous to pass up. The dress has no give, no stretch. Wear a strapless bra. I am full bust and it has a built-in one -- but I found myself readjusting periodically (not too many times but enough) to prevent nip slips .. lol ... I'm 5'8", 208 pds, reg size 12/14, curvy, hourglass shape. It accentuates the body, hides imperfections, and is very stunning. Overall, no complaints.

Ran small and short
This dress is gorgeous and high quality material but has literally no give or stretch at all. If you have any curves this will not fit you. Straight body types will fit perfectly in this. I was sad not to be able to wear it because I've got a booty. :-(

Beautiful formal dress, that also has some sparkle!
This dress was not what I expected at first. I didn't know that there was sparkle underneath the black print. I loved it though! The dress material is a little bit heavy, which is why I chose not to wear it to the black tie event. I knew there would be a lot of dancing, and I want to get tired just from wearing my dress. I also have larger shoulders, so for these strapless dresses, I always go up a size to make sure the top will fit my 36B bust. The 6R did just that!
