Stylist Review!
This emerald shade of green is perfect for a formal fall affair, while the embellishment on the hip area is very flattering and creates the illusion of a waist or further emphasizes an hourglass figure. The low back is a nice feature. Emphasize this with a soft up do! This dress is great for any cup size and can be worn with a nubra, strapless bra, or even a standard bra if necessary. The fabric is very comfortable with a lot of stretch. However, it is very fitted throughout the midsection and hip area. I recommend sizing up for your backup size and having some shapewear or spanx on hand, just in case. Add a little glitter on the hand like the Ella Carter Logan Ring, and you're all set.

Stunning, compliments all night!
So i ordered this in a size 6 and a size 4 as backup. I ended up with the 4 because the 6 was bigger in certain areas that I wanted more fitted. One thing to note- the neckline is very tight. It made a red mark on my collar bone that would show. There's not much stretch around the neck line and sleeves if you go with a size down- which I would if you wanted a more snug fit. The 6 fit great but the fit of the 4 made it more sexier, I think. GO WITH THE LONG if you're 5'6 or taller! I went with the regular and the dress didn't touch the floor. I was bummed but it was so stunning that I didn't care. Overall, wonderful dress!

Stunning, lots of compliments, beautiful color
5'9" ~ 130 lbs wore 2-3" heels... long length was perfect, not tripping, didn't have to hem- shoulders fit great, so comfortable- received lots of compliments. Wore regular bra, straps and back level didn't require special top. Wore pantyhose, but the seam up the front showed a little- recommend so some spanx or something that doesn't have a front seam- or nothing, but my shoes needed hose. Thick spanx wouldn't work too well, the dress has enough weight to not show a lot, but I think it might pull a little to have a full undergarment on. Overall beautiful dress- I wish I could buy it and keep it forever. I wore simple 'ball' earrings, platinum front and black on the back, the new kind with a ball in front and back of the lobe- doesn't need other jewelry.

Outstanding, perfect fall gown
Fit true to size and was perfect length, I am 5'3 and wore 3 inch heels. The back is gorgeous but I didn't get a pic, and the color and sleeves are perfect for fall. I was able to wear a regular bra or a strapless would have worked too. The sleeves were not restricting at all, and the material is very comfortable. Shape wear was a must for me, but if you have a toned tummy you will be fine without. It is somewhat form fitting through the hips and then the bottom is beautifully draped. I got tons of compliments and was able to dance and eat without feeling uncomfortable. The beading on the hips is stunning they are a hematite color and green. I went with nude shoes and bag, but silver or hematite/grey would have been pretty too.

This was my first experience with RTR and it was FABULOUS! Selection, delivery, quality and return!
This dress was true to size. Fit perfectly and not too snug. The material felt amazing on the skin and I was able to move comfortably and it fell just right. There wasn't a single person that did not complement me on the gown. It is pretty long so you want to make sure you have a nice heel so it's not dragging on the floor. I'm pretty tall 5'9'', wore a 3 inch heel and still had some of the gown on the floor. Add some simple studs and smile! Perfect dress for a fall formal affair.

Great wedding at a castle. Dress fit perfectly.
The dress fits very well. I just had a baby and still have some pounds to get back to normal but I felt great in the dress. Size 2 fit perfectly. If you're tall it will not fit.. Order a long.

I rented this for a black tie wedding in the fall, and it was perfect!
I am fairly tall and skinny, so I typically wear a size 0 or 2. Being 5’6 tall, plus heels, I was nervous that the dress may be too short. I couldn’t decide between the regular length or the long. I called the RTR stylist and was advised that Badgley Mischka usually runs long. I got regular in both sizes – and I am SO happy I did. Even the regular size dress was LONG. I had to fold and pin the back a little, but it wasn’t noticeable. Both sizes fit well and were very forgiving, but I ended up wearing the size 0 because it was more fitted/flattering. Definitely recommend some spanx and a sticky bra! Dress was very comfortable.

I felt very old Hollywood
I loved the dress. It was super elegant and classic which is what I was going for. I got a 8 and a 10 because I have wide hips and a bigger bust, but I think I could have easily fit in a size 6 in this dress (it has some stretch it). The only downside was the length. I'm 5'2" and even in heels I was tripping over the hem. The earring (I got the surprise bling) were perfect with the dress. Over all for my first experience with the rent runaway went really well. I should note the dresses came a day later than originally told to me, so be sure to order for the day before.

Whimsical wings
I did not wear this, it was my backup, but I will probably rent again for our Christmas party. The beaded "wings" on the hips are such a unique touch and are very flattering. Agree that the neck seam pulls against your collarbone. I don't know how that would be after a few hours. The rest of the dress has good stretch. You'll probably want a "low back" bra, a regular bra peeks out just a bit.

This dress was perfect for a fall wedding! Felt great on, beautiful color.
I'm tall, and with 3 inch heels the 8L was bordering on too long. But I'd still rent the L If you're tall, it worked fine with the heels. I was able to wear a regular strapless bra without it peeking out at all. This dress is effortless and beautiful, while still being super comfortable for a fall wedding.

I'm 5'5" 135 I ordered the 6 and 4 both fit very well. I went with the 6 but after looking at the photos I should have worn the 4. It hugged my curves beautifully, the 6 glided over them. But I was very comfortable! The beading detail is stunning!

This dress was comfortable and the details were beautiful!
I wish I had gotten a better picture of this dress. It was beautiful. The details on the sides were very pretty in person, but didn't show very well in pictures. It had a low back, but wasn't completely backless, I wore a backless bra with it. I am 5'4" and I was able to wear heels with it, without it being too short. The sleeves were a bit long and they were fairly loose so I felt like they got in the way at times in the night. The fabric was stretchy and comfortable.

I ordered a size 4L and 6L. The 4 fit well, but I think I could have even worn a 2. I'm 5'7" and wore 4" heels, and the length was great. The color is beautiful and perfect for a fall event.

I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner. Everyone was super skeptical when I chose a green dress for this event, but they understood why when it arrived. Beyond beautiful. Fits very well and the open back is phenomenal.

Formal Event in the Fall
RTR Experience: My experience with RTR was not that great. I was suppose to receive the dress the day before the event, but it never came. I tried calling RTR, however, they were already closed for the day. I then reached out to UPS and they said I could pick up at their location (which is kind of a hassle). Once I received the dress I only had one size and I did order two (why wouldn't you it's free and just in case), but only one size showed up. I told RTR this and they basically said, sorry, we don't think you did. Make sure you triple check this just in case you are between sizes. Luckily, the size that was in there fit but if it didn't then I would have been out of luck. Dress Details: Now to the dress, the dress was a nice fabric and a little stretchy. I usually wear a size 2 and it the dress fit pretty close to a 2. The detail on the hips gives you a little more shape. I'm 5'4 and I ordered the regular length, but it was still fairly long. The back drapes in the back and I wore a strapless bra. Overall, the dress was a nice fabric and fit pretty true to size....I received a lot of compliments.

The stylists at RTR Chicago helped me choose this beautiful dress for a fall wedding. I was worried the regular size would be too short, but it was perfect even wearing mid size heels. And I was able to wear a regular bra which was a bonus! Thank you RTR Chicago!

Beautiful dress! Perfect for a black tie wedding.
Dress runs a little small, wish I had ordered a size larger than my normal size so it wouldn't have been quite so tight. But it was stunning on and everyone loved it! Hard to wear with a normal bra because the back is a little low.

Beautiful Color and Detailing!
I wore the 6R because I was going to a formal affair and did not want to show off too much curve in the dress, but the 4R would of probably been a better fit as the sleeves on the 6 were very baggy on me. I am only 5 4' and I could pull off 3 1/2 in heels but if I was any taller I would of had to wear flats - so if you are tall, order a Long. But the color and detail on the hips was just beautiful! I was able to wear a normal bra with straps and had no problem all night with them showing in the back. Really loved the dress and got so many compliments all night, sad to be sending it back.

Nobody else had anything like it!
My pictures don't do this dress justice. I wore this to a charity ball, black tie preferred. Everyone I talked to absolutely loved this dress and commented on the beautiful color. "Stunning," was the word used over and over about this dress. My measurements for comparison purposes: Bust - 36, waist - 28, hips - 38 Some tips: I'm busty, so I wasn't comfortable wearing a nu bra as recommended. I went with a corset and wore the straps (make sure there's no boning on the cups or it'll show!). The back isn't as low as the model's pic makes it seem, but you definitely need a bra that has a lower back. Also, I opted for side-swept hair so that it could take up some of the "real estate" on my chest. Black hematite dangle earrings with fringe finished it off. For jewelry, you can go with silver, dark gray, or black hematite. I would stay away from gold or diamond. The dress has a little edge to it because of the beading, so bridal jewelry might be a little too traditional. I went with silver shoes because I couldn't find a darker gray. As for sizing, I usually wear either a 6 or an 8, so I ordered both and the 8 fit perfectly.

Flattering from Every Angle
I normally wear an 8, but LOVED the body hugging fit of the 6. My only complaint was the length of the dress. I'm 5'7" and definitely needed the 6L to wear tall heels. Overall a sexy, classy dress for a fall/winter event. The color popped against my skin and the plunging back made the dress appealing from every angle.

Stunning
This dress is perfect. Pictures do not do the beadwork justice. Everyone loves this dress. I am tall and I ordered the long which was appropriate with small kitten heels. Fabric does show all curves, I had on a stick on bra and you could see the outline when up close but not obviously noticeable. The back makes the dress. So much drama.

This dress was stunning, perfect! Received compliments all night... and got engaged to my sweetie!!!
The material has some give/stretch which is always a plus! Be sure to really check the length and what shoes you plan to wear, thought I needed the long but ended up being MUCH too long with my 5 inch platform stilettos (luckily I packed double sided stick tape- no one knew I "hemmed" it). I believe who ever wore my particular dress before me had torn some of the lining by the zipper causing the dress to "twist" throughout the night so the details were not both perfectly on each side. The sleeves were perfect for the chilly evening. I wore spanx just to be sure everything looked perfectly smooth. The back was beautiful and not too low that I could have worn a normal bra but opted for a strapless so there was no chance of tacky straps throughout the night. Also wasn't too low to make me self-conscious or feel inappropriate. I was very comfortable in this beautiful dress. The color is stunning and exactly what I wanted. I had ladies asking me all night about my dress, that they wished they were wearing it, and even chasing me to the elevator to ask me about it. Perfect pick for a Marine Corps Ball... especially my first and ending up being proposed to by the most amazing man! Thank you RTR for helping me look fabulous!

This dress was absolutely stunning. It felt and looked felt amazing!
This was for a black tie event in December in Minnesota, so the material and the longer sleeves made it perfect for the season. The details on the hips hit at the perfect spot and accentuate them for a figure flattering look. I absolutely loved the movement of the dress too when walking around. I was very glad I ordered a long, it hit the floor with heels and had a little extra fabric at the bottom, but I think a regular would have been too short and I am 5'6. I could have gone with the size 2L but the 4L was much more comfortable so that's what I went with. I received several compliments on how stunning this dress was and they loved the back. I wore a regular strapless bra which I had no issues with. So glad I picked this gown!

This dress is a classic beauty
This is an absolutely beautiful and flattering dress. I could have worn the 6 but ended up wearing the 8 just to be a little more comfortable and have extra "give" in the back area so that I could adjust/tape it to where my bra didn't show. Only complaints about the dress would be that there were quite a few beads missing on both dresses I received and the stitching inside the sleeve was loose. I'm sure with numerous cleanings, this is just going to happen, but I'm going to leave a note with the dresses when I send them back just to be sure I don't get charged for it. Just a tip- you might want a backless bra or some dress tape to assist with the coverage in the back. I would definitely recommend this dress.

I couldn't wear this dress because it was way too short. I think it may have been mismarked because other reviewers at my height and weight looked perfect in their floor-skimming (or just above) L or even R lengths. Sad because dress is really gorgeous.

This is the PERFECT Holiday Party dress!! I felt beautiful and was very comfortable!
I originally ordered the 4R with the 6R as a backup because I wanted the dress to be form fitting. I'm a tad bit busty and the 4R was too tight around the girls and was also a little on the shorter side with 3" heels. When I tried the 6R on I felt so much better! The fit was great and the length was perfect. The color is absolutely stunning . I received many compliments and felt like a movie star :)

I loved this dress and I got so many compliments at the award ceremony I attended.
It fit perfectly, I am tall and have trouble finding long dresses that actually cover my feet! And this dress in the Long size did just that. The material was comfortable and flattering. I was in Florida so the only downfall was that I was rather warm when I was outside, but that's my fault more than the dress haha. I didn't want to send this back, because it was so perfect!

Tons of compliments. The ball was in December so the dress was perfect for the holiday season.
Fit was good. Hugged in all the right places. Spanks are a must. It tells you to wear a sticky bra or not bra, but I wore a regular bra and it worked great. Would have liked for the dress to be a little longer.

RTR was awesome! I loved this dress. Looked even better than pictures. Received tons compliments!
I ended up going a size up just because I have broader shoulders. The 10R was too tight around the chest personally, but the 12R fit great! Not too long and is a very flattering dress. So sad to send it back, but RTR made shipping so easy and hassle free. Will definitely do another rental again!

I wore this dress for a formal New Year's Eve event and felt absolutely glamorous!
I wore the smaller of two sizes that I ordered and it fit like a dream. It was a little bit too long, but I could have worn slightly higher heels. It was really nice that the dress didn't need to be steamed or ironed, possibly because of the fabric but also it came packed in a garment bag.
