Wore this dress to the Lion King on NYC Broadway!
Pros-true to size in every aspect (bust, waist, hip), vibrant color, very flattering on petite figure Cons-little long (I had to wear 4 inch heels and still hold it up with one hand to keep it from dragging in the back), train is heavier than you think (pulls the back out slightly due to weight) Overall, great dress and I enjoyed getting compliments throughout the night!

Stunning color - perfect fall/winter dress!
I rented this dress for holiday photos. I'm 5'2, 105 lbs, 32C and the 2R fit well. I expected the 0R to fit better, but it was actually a little snug. This dress is quite long - with 3" heels, it still grazes the ground. The ruching around the bodice is flattering and the train adds a touch of something special to the dress, although it could easily be stepped on at a crowded event. The color is a vibrant red that was flattering for my skin tone and hair color. Would recommend this anyone wishing to stand out at a fall/winter function!

Holy cow! This dress is gorgeous. I was nominated for best dressed!
I have a bit of a tummy but the spanx I wore wrinkled up. My suggestion is wear a pair of slenderizing underwear that are not bulky. The dress is very forgiving but why not look the best you can with some well fitting undergarments? I wore heels which was awesome especially since I got the long version of this dress. I felt very glamorous and professional. It's more on the conservative side so if you are looking to show off your great boobs or legs this isn't the dress for you. I hadn't gotten dressed up in a very, very long time and this dress gave me the confidence to dress up more.

The red dress was beautiful. It paired nicely with gold shoes and accessories.
I have a very large bust and this fabric is very forgiving and also flattering. It was a very comfortable dress.

The wedding was perfection. I am actually glad the red dress didn't work as it would have clashed!
The 10L worked across my chest and belly, but it was tight through the ribcage and the zipper gave my butt a weird lump. It was also shorter than anticipated. (I'm normally a 6, but I am 20 weeks pregnant).

The amount of compliments I received all night! I truly felt like the Belle of the military ball.
Fit - true to size (I was told by the stylist that the cut of most Badgley Mischka dress are cut small but mine fit me perfectly. The 2r was loose) Style- the semi-low cut in the front of the dress paired with an excellent push up will definitely set the tone of classy with a hint of sexy. The trail in the back of the dress is just to die for. Gives you the red carpet look with the ease of movement. It got stepped on a few times but other than that I loved how it accentuated my butt, yet covered it moderately so my butt wasn't the center of attention all night. lol. Pros: 1. Very soft, breathable, and light material 2. Fits comfortably. Hugs your curves just right without hugging you too tightly 3. Easy to walk in, dance in, and move in Cons: 1. I wouldn't really count this as a con but if you are going to be in a very crowded area, be mindful of ya train. We went to a few bars after the ball && I found myself holding my train a lot.

Beautful color!
This was a backup dress since my original was mo longer available. Unfortunately I could not wear this dress. I am 5'7", and it was too short even though I ordered the long. It was also too warm and snug. Customer service was excellent!!!! We just didn't have enough time and choices ( I am a size 16). Will try again next time.

Fit was not flattering
This dress is not very flattering on those with hips. It draws more attention to them with the gathers on the side. The material is nice and thick but because of fit I would not recommend for pear shaped women.

Beautiful red
This dress was my original pick but RTR emailed me to say it was no longer available due to whatever happened with the last time it was rented. RTR was great and allowed me to pick a replacement at no additional charge. My replacement dress was gorgeous and arrived on time. RTR sent me the next available size in this dress but unfortunately it was just a little snug. I think if I had my size this dress would have been great. I like the full coverage on the back so you can wear any bra or foundation wear. It was a stretchy material but lined and heavy so it felt really comfortable.

This is a beautiful dress. I did not end up wearing it for fit reasons that are specific to my body, but the fabric is gorgeous and the color is beautiful. I guess I would say that it runs a little small because I wore a 14 in the dress I ended up wearing and the 16 didn't quite fit right. Almost like the bottom half was tight across the hips but the top had too much fabric. Basically, I would have needed the top to be a 14 and the bottom to be a 16.

This dress was amazing! I had to work a black tie gala for my office and it was great!
Loved the matte jersey--and you can wear a regular bra with this gown!!! The fabric is very forgiving and wonderful to move around in. I'm 5'10 and a true size 2 so I went with the 2L--I wore 2" heels and the dress was perfect.

The dress was so classy and the material was very comfortable, I felt like a celebrity
The dress was just a little too long even with 3 inch heels. I wish it would have come in a petit size. Also the train got stepped on a lot by guests.

My photo was taken by the legendary NY Times fashion photographer, Bill Cunningham.
Dress fit like it was tailored to me. Just had to watch out for the train.
