Sent backup size but didn't wear it

They didn't have my typical size 6 and sent the backup 8 and another backup dress. This dress is very pretty and gives off Cinderella/Elsa from Frozen vibes. It definitely runs small though. However while my hips fit in the 8 just fine, it was a little too loose in the bust and just didn't hang right. Plus the backup they sent was such a stunner I went with that. My only real complaint about this one was that the shimmery layer doesn't zip up all the way in the back, but it didn't hang nicely on me like it does on the model. It was kind of gaping and looked awkward, though again that could've been because of the size.

Love this comfortable, stunning(!) and elegant dress!!

Fit true to size. I wore a normal bra (30E). The length was perfect with kitten heels (5'7" tall). It was a refreshing, soft, sophisticated color amongst a sea of black gowns. Loved this dress

Felt like a princess

Wore this dress to barrister law ball and it was close to perfect. Lots of compliments. Size 2R worked thanks to very high heels. Couldn't fit a bra on, but there was still good support. This dress shows alllll your curves. My first RTR order and it was delivered days in advance. No complaints!

Super awesome but also very tight dress! I suggest getting a larger that what you normally are. Also the sleeves are very restricting

The dress was beautiful and received several comments.

The fit was perfect. I have a wide ribcage, and because of this, I went up to a size 8. The size 6 was a tad bit too tight.

Loved this dress!! Wore it to a gala (theme was fire and ice) and received so many compliments!

It fit very well! Not too loose and not too tight anywhere. I am 5’ 9” 135-140 lbs and the length was perfect with 3” heels. I ordered 6L, but ended up wearing the back up size (4L). I thought it was a very classy dress that was sexy, yet modest.

I wore this for a Winter Gala. The theme was "Glitter and Gold".

I really liked that the color was different. The dress really shines in photographs. Overall, I remember being pretty comfortable in the dress.

Stunning

I wore this dress to a formal military event. It was more form fitting than I expected but there was some really nice structure to the top so you could get away without wearing a bra. I put that it fit true to size because I think it probably does. It was snug on me but I have been putting on some weight so I think it was likely due to that instead. I probably should have gone with a 12L as a backup. I had hoped it would be a little longer, but at 5'10" with 4 inch heels it still nearly brushed the floor so I have to complaints. This dress was definitely more periwinkle blue than it was lavender but was still a flattering color.

Beautiful for dress for NYC black tie wedding!

Beautiful dress! Definitely recommend the long for taller women! I don't like to wear heels and was worried the long would be too long in flats but it was perfect. As others have said, the lining of the dress is longer than the overlay. I didn't like how this looked so I used dress tape to fold it up. Easy enough. I thought the dress was true to size. I'm generally a 4-6 with broad shoulders and slim through the waist and the 6L fit like a glove. Like others said, the color is definitely a light blue. Very pretty but different than it appears in the photos. My only complaint is the sequins were a little itchy by the end of the night. Otherwise, loved it!

Beautiful, understated dress for a formal event!

Wore this to a charity ball sponsored by my work, and it was both easy to wear (not fussy) and appropriate for a formal event where I was surrounded by partners from my firm. My only complaint is the sequins along the sides of the dress are quite stiff and can be scratchy. At on point in the evening I felt like I had rug burn on the insides of my arms from the rubbing.

This is an absolutely beautiful dress. Very feminine and elegant. It's very comfortable.

Enough sparkle and lace to make it intricate, but nothing is over the top. The shade is a beautiful lilac that borders on a light blue. It made me feel tall and elegant. It's comfortable enough for dancing all night long! The ONLY con is that the inner lining was longer than the lacy part, but I remedied the situation with some fashion tape and a very helpful husband.

A stand out in a room of black dresses!

The color of this dress was unbeatable. The shape was also very flattering and I got a ton of compliments on this dress throughout the night. There were some cons...first the sequins stuck to each other, so you had to be careful to untangle them throughout the night and also the underarm pit area was also a little uncomfortable due to the sequins. But overall, I loved this rental and felt like the movie star the entire night!

gown was goregeous just way too long

dress was gorgeous fit well in the top waist and hip area . I am thin very thin 90 pounds to be exact and im short . I am 5 foot 2 the dress and the under part of it were very very long even in 5 inch heels it dragged . it would require a hem of about 3 extra inches off the bottom so it wont snag on a heel causing you trip . I didn't wear the dress, and maybe a 0 P still would have been to long. Guess gowns aren't made for short women, something for the designers to consider. But the dress was really pretty, not lilac or lavender it was a pale blue color match your shoes accordingly .

Stunning and flattering

Rented for a formal wedding and it was perfect, was complimented all night! Loved the fit, was comfortable fit well, true the size, laid nice in the hip area and was easy to dance in. The boning in the top because I have a smaller chest allowed for me to wear no bra. Would definitely recommend this!

Senior Prom

I wore this for my senior prom. It was very comfortable and fit me like a glove. The only this about the dress that I disliked was the fact that the under slip was longer than the outer slip. The photo online shows it's a "lilac gown," but I received a light blue gown. This is my first time ordering and it went pretty well, I'd definitely use this site again.

Great color!

Even though this dress isn't so much of a lilac color, it is still really pretty. I would say this dress runs slightly small to size. It was a little tight in the hips, I could've worn it but a size larger made the dress lay better. For your second size I suggest going one size up. One of the great things about the dress was that it fit perfectly in the top with or without a bra. It was also easy to dance and walk in. I definitely recommend this dress if you're looking for something different than your average prom dress!

Delicate, but form fitting

This dress was beautiful, it hung very nicely and accentuated my figure. However even with spanx, the dress revealed too much of my stomach in the front, so I decided not to wear it. It is absolutely gorgeous in person! The lace and embellishments were softer than I expected. All in all elegant and charming.

RTR does it again: beautiful dress in great condition!

Worn for my sister's sorority formal. Dress was absolutely beautiful and full of detail between the lace and sparkles on the dress. I am 5'4" and wore the 4 regular with about 3 or 4 inch heels and it was the perfect length. Dress is well lined, but still light, and super clean and in great condition (no pulls or rips in the lace). Received numerous compliments throughout the night. Would highly recommend renting this dress!

Love Badgley Mischka!

I rented this as a backup option for a black-tie birthday party at an art gallery and it is beautiful! The color is like a powder blue and the cut is stunning. I opted for the other Badgley Mischka dress I ordered only because it came in petite and the length was better for me. So pretty though!

Beautiful and comfortable! But not really lilac.

I wore a size 10... it fit perfectly. First, the color is definitely light blue and not really lilac. It worked out that my neighbor rented a dress and her light blue dress didn't come so she went with her backup and I was glad because I think we would have been twinning. The zipper is quite difficult to get up - seems to be a common thing with most dresses but it was not because the dress was tight- the zipper just sticks. I wore a silicone bra and felt extremely comfortable to dance and enjoy the evening events.

Gorgeous gown for black tie wedding

The fit of this dress was beautiful. The boning in the waist gave you some definition. The bottom of the gown clung to my hips perfectly. The lace and sequins made it extra special. The color was so flattering and made me stand out from the sea of black dresses. I absolutely loved wearing this dress and am sad to return it!

1st time renting

It looked good on, and has a cute back. I would say it is closer to a pale blue than a lilac color. I really didn't like that the slip was longer than the sequined overlay. I am between 5'4" and 5'5" and in the picture am barefoot. I ordered this as my back up dress and ended up wearing it because the original one didn't work for me. The dress fit a bit snug but I could move comfortably.

It was a gorgeous stunner of a dress

Everyone loved the color, it fit me well, except around the waist it was a bit tight. But overall it was amazing and a great color on me, a pretty pale girl. Big hit.

I was told 4 times I looked like Cinderella!

Great dress, the 0 was a little too snug so I want with the 2. Sizing up let it hang on my frame much better. The dress was in great shape, gorgeous pastel color with tons of sequins. I adored this dress so much and spent the night swimming in compliments. Can't recommend this dress enough, it was my 3rd rental and favorite so far.

Beautiful dress with elegant shimmer!

This dress is perfect for low lighting! It has a really elegant twinkle and shimmer. Great coverage so you don't feel too exposed. My daughter is 5'6 and 113 lbs. and usually wears a size 0 or 2. She wore the 0L and the length was perfect with 2.5-3 inch heels. The underskirt was a bit longer than the lace overskirt. It was not nearly as noticeable on the 0L which is what worked better for her anyway.

Mardi Gras Bal

Absolutely amazing dress and quality. The color is a periwinkle blue. The lining is longer than the lace overlay but I pinned it up so it wouldn't show. Easy fix. The top has sturdy boning so it stays in place and you do not need a bra as it has cups. I highly recommend this dress. I typically wear a size 6 but size up as it runs a little small. Prefect if you want to feel extra feminine.

Made for a princess

Beautifully made, nice thick lining. My dress had obviously been worn and cleaned several times--the liner was longer than the sequin overlay. Not too big a deal--I could pin the liner up to a shorter length. Not super comfortable--sequins are quite scratchy

BEAUTIFUL!

I loOOOOved this dress, with the exception that the zipper was impossible. But I felt like a goddess anyway, and I wanted to live in this dress. No, I did not look like the model, but it fit my difficult-to-style body (5'5", 155 lbs, 36D) and I felt just the right amount of glamorous for a stylish yet still Seattle-y wedding.

Sparkly ice princessy dress

Built in corset, so bra isn't neccessary if you're comfortable not wearing one. The lace and underneath material are quite stretchy. so it's comfortable. This is a body hugging dress, so it's not a dress to feel self conscious in. Got lots of compliments on the subtle sequins and color, in the sea of black at my formal offical holiday party.

My favorite RTR drsss yet

Loved this dress! Runs true to size and was very comfortable. The boning in the top of the dress provided excellent support which is great if you have a larger chest like I do. The color of the dress in person is so much prettier than it photographs. Would totally recommend for any formal affair!

When your new husband helps with the stubborn zipper

Loved this dress and the way it made me feel. Definitely looser up top and tighter on the bottom. Wish I went with the 6L after stuffing my face. Much more blue in person. I thought it was more purple by the pictures. I'm 5'7" and was worried about the length because I am around the cut off. My heels were about 4 inches and I probably could have gone with shorter heels or flats and just lifted the dress for the night. Like other people have said, the hem on the bottom is funky with the underlying popping out but it still looks great!
