Color is fantasic, too much for big chested girls
I absolutely loved the color, and the fit was great but even with fashion tape it was too risqué for my (36C) chest. My friend wore it and looked great. I wish I could have made this work!

The color makes the dress
This dress was suuuuuper sexy and I enjoyed wearing it, but beware - the front is cut considerably lower than on the model - like 2 inches below the bottom of your bra. I had to do some serious pinning to make it wedding appropriate. The ruching at the midsection is also a little odd - I almost felt like it called attention to my stomach instead of camouflaging. However, the color was gorgeous and once I got it pinned, it was a great look. The 10R length was just right for me at 5'7" with 3 in heels (no shoes in the picture).

Striking color in a sea of black
I rented this dress as one of two options for a gala event. I was so pleased to note that the color is as striking as the pictures portrayed. I wish I had ordered a smaller size as this was a little big on me but it was hard to tell with the way the dress was cut. It wears well and was very comfortable to move and sit in. It's a low cut dress so I didn't wear a bra and it did require some double-sided tape to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. But I was really happy with this and received compliments all night. In a sea of black gowns, it was definitely a standout!

The color is to die for!!
Sexy! The pics on RTR don't do this dress justice. I am lucky enough to live next to the D.C. Store so I was able to see it in person first. The color and deep v were definitely a show stopper! I wore a NuBra and it was perfect.

This amazing dress! My husband loved it!
I ended up wearing the 6 instead of the 8 for a better upper fit. I did end up pinning the bust area as the event was a little more conservative. But all in all, this dress was AWESOME! It was beautiful and made me feel fabulous! I also got a ton of compliments on the color.

Pretty color
Fit was true to size. The front was a bit too daring for my chest and the occasion at that time (military ball/6 months post-partum). When I called to have another dress sent, the girl told me there were no dresses in my size to send as backups, so I took a credit.

Glamorous Flattering Gown!
So figure flattering and sexy ! Hugs the curves while gliding over trouble spots , very flattering to derrière! Beautiful color as well . Countless compliments! Very very low cut bodice so needed adhesive bra plus fashion tape and also quite long so a bit of a tripping hazard . But worth it!

My Fiance was in love with me in this dress. I loved the color
I HAD to use fashion tape to keep from falling out. Be aware, it's very revealing in the chest area. The 8 probably would have fit better on top, but I have size 10 hips, and while there's stretch in the dress, the twist bulges out if there's no space in the hips.

So many compliments!
The color and style of the dress was very flattering. I did need a little toupee tape. The front middle slit was not too high. I would definitely order this dress again! :)

The color was popping like my belly!
I'm 23 weeks pregnant and still felt elegant! The color was a show stopper. You will for sure need fashion tape but with that I felt confident. The fabric wasn't stretchy like I imagined but there was plenty of room in the belly area which worked out for me! So if you have a little extra or are pregnant this is a must rent!

This dress made my night. Gorgeous color and fantastic fit.
I rented this dress for Barristers' Ball and it was a real head turner. If the color weren't so bold and unforgettable, I would buy it. The color stood out in a sea of black, red, and blue. Very similar to radiant orchid-- stunning. The dress was surprising comfortable and hugged by body without being snug or tight. I'm 5'3" and had to hem the dress about 2" so that it only skimmed the floor. For reference, I wore 4" heels. The only con I can see is the neckline. Larger chested ladies will definitely need one of the U-front bras or will have a much droopier look.

Great dress, but not for curvy hourglass shape
I loved the color and top of this dress. Neckline is very flattering and the twist hides any "trouble areas" in the mid section. However, as a woman with a true hourglass shape, I found the bottom to be cut for someone with less hips. The slit went up so high, and due to hip width, split high. It was fine for standing but walking showed my lady parts (yes that high). Perhaps ordering a long would help (I'm 5'7"). For this reason, I did not wear the dress.

This dress is a gorgeous color. It was perfect for a black tie wedding.
This dress was very true to size. The neck was a little lower than anticipated but nothing a little fashion tape couldn't help with. I am 5'4 and it was the perfect length with a 3' heel.

Rich color,dynamic standout
Wore this to a black tie wedding. The color was rich and dynamic. You need double-sided tape especially if you are like me and have very little chest. Even though I got regular I still needed 3 inch heels. Definitely rent it again.

This Dress Is So Hot, I Was Whistled At!!!
First, the color of this dress is gorgeous! I wore it to a Masquerade Ball and it was perfect. Very sexy but still classy. Rented the 6 and it was perfect. Length was great with heels. The neckline is plunging so buy sticky cups or be prepared to work the tape. I used cups from a swim suit and safety pinned them into the bust of the gown. Worked like a charm. Good posture is a must for this dress. So don't rent if you are slouchy and don't enjoy attention. It is a head turner. In fact, this is the perfect gown to wear to a wedding if you want to draw attention away from the bride😉

Gorgeous (and sexy) gown!
Get your fashion tape and rent this gown. Such a beautiful color that really stood out. The neckline is very low cut, but with a fairly conservative cut on the rest of the gown it's very sexy without being over the top. I ordered a 10L and 12L and opted for the 12L because it "hung" a little nicer around the bust. Highly recommend!

Fancy birthday party.
Deep neckline, but tape helped. Plan to have excellent posture all evening! I'm 5'-7" and the long was perfect for me to wear 3" heels.

Fun and colorful and so comfortable!
Loved this dress! The fit and color were perfect for a fall black tie wedding. The stretch of the fabric makes it super easy and comfortable to wear. The front is pretty low cut, which was tough for someone like me who doesn't have much to fill out the top of the dress. But nothing a little double sided tape couldn't solve! Got tons of compliments and felt beautiful!

Stunning color and amazing fit
Amazing dress and beautiful color. Comfortable to wear- I did use some tape to make sure things stayed put (34B)- probably better for smaller bust sizes but overall amazing dress and received many compliments on it.

Gorgeous color for a fall Gala!
Amazing fit! Super glamorous yet not too revealing. I loved how the fabric felt against my body and how comfortable it was. Lots and lots of complements. Beware the plunging neck line - but you can always use tape or safety pins. I can't think of any con except that I had to return the dress!

Beautiful gown, color is rich and glamorous, received tons of compliments at broadway gala.
5ft 7, 130 lbs, tried both a 4 and a 6. Ended up wearing the 4 since I didn't quite fill out the bust of the 6. Neckline was MUCH lower than I expected based on model photos; down to the bottom of my sternum - buy tape. Looked great standing up. Was afraid I was showing to much while sitting down, so plan for that when taping. I expected more couture/European sizing, but sizing seems consistent with contemporary American brands (jcrew, Ann Taylor, etc).

Hollywood glam!! beautiful dress, received numerous compliments all night!
Loved this dress. The length was perfect, the bust was a little big so just needed some tape to keep it in place all night, accentuates curbs perfectly. I was very happy with this rental, wish I could keep it!

RTR team member review.
Great purple gown from Badgley Mischka. Running true to size, we recommend going one size up for backup. With stretch in the fabric this dress would work for any bust size. The midsection and hip is fitted with great stretch to make for a comfortable wear. If you’re curvier, this dress will show off your curves! Due to the low neckline, we recommend you wear a Nu Bra or no bra with this look. One thing that I love about this dress is the twist in the front. At 61” from the shoulder to hem, this dress is perfect for weddings and galas. It would look best with heels and silver jewelry and accessories.
