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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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! :)

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!

Felt like a million bucks

I'm 5'6, roughly 147 lb, and a 34D true hourglass. I ordered this as a back up dress in a 6R and wished I had two events to go to so I could wear both! Despite my fears, this wasn't overly revealing. That said, do not rent unless you want all eyes on you. My boyfriend couldn't stop staring and I have never felt more confident in my body. The dress runs a little small (I usually wear a 4 or 6 in dresses) but it's stretchy so it wasn't really an issue. At 5'6, the dress barely touched the ground without heels--given the shape, that probably would have been ok but for my next big event I will likely order the longer length.

Great and convenient way to find a unique dress!

This dress was everything! Beautiful color. The front is a very low cut, so for bustier woman it can get a bit uncomfortable as you feel like you have to consistently be fixing the top so you don't have a nip slip.

This dress is a def eye catcher! If you want to be seen this is the dress for you!

I had reservations about it at first. I decided to go outside my bubble & go for it! It is very lowcut for sure so its best to make sure it fits correctly or have tape. I am inbetween sizes so the 8 fit perfectly up top but was a little too tight for me in the hips so I decided to wear the 10 instead. Front view I had no problem but side view, im very self conscious about my mid section & felt the way the twist laid on me brought more attention to that area, however, I wore a shaw all night to camouflage it. Overall it was a beautiful dress & I was complimented all night on it!

Head turner

Beautiful color! Wore this with aquamarine earrings. Awesome color combo. Little more cleavage than I would have wanted since this was for a gala and I was representing my company. Only part I was dissatisfied with was the front twist. Would have preferred for that part to be tighter. Felt a little like a kangaroo pouch (large exaggeration but first thing that came to mind!). Overall, would recommend!

Stunning!

Dress definitely fits true to size. At 5'4 the regular was a perfect length - I wore 3" heels. Very low cut, but not inappropriate with my boobs (34C) - might be inappropriate if you are very busty. Also, because it's so low cut I couldn't wear a bra - I didn't need one though. Slit in the front was sexy. Back was high and simple - which balanced out the front - low cut, slit and bunching. I wasn't a huge fan of the bunching - although very flattering around the mid section - it left kind of a pouch directly below over the pelvic region.

So Flattering!

I felt beautiful in this dress! The color compliments my skin tone (olive) and it hugged me in the right places. I don't have big tatas so it was no problem not to wear a bra. I do have a big booty so it was tight in that aspect, but it was the right kind of tight!!

Too revealing

I ordered this dress for a formal wedding, but wasn't able to wear it because it was far too revealing! The neckline is plunging and there was no way fashion tape or even safety pins could fix it. I felt so exposed I am not even comfortable posting a picture here! The color was gorgeous, and the fabric beautiful, but I think this is made for a smaller chested woman.

Fun and sexy for black tie wedding

Super comfortable, easy to wear regular bra with! Flattering v neck, ruching in the waistline is forgiving, and I love the slit in the front, easy for dancing. I wore 4 inch heels at 5'4 and the length was perfect.

Orchid color is bold and beautiful! Black tie wedding in October of 2017

I wore this dress to a black tie wedding in New Orleans in October. I loved the color and wanted something that would pop in a sea of black, and this dress certainly did that! I received many compliments on this dress in person and on photos I took at the wedding. I enjoyed this dress and it was fun to wear, but I had the following issues with it: 1) The top is REALLY difficult to fit correctly. It's extremely low cut, which I'm comfortable with, but the main issue was with the length of the straps and "gaping". If I hadn't have been wearing a low-cut bra, a safety pin, and tons of sticky tape, this dress would have gaped open and shown way too much! 2) Straps are really long - if you don't have a long torso or are on the short side you may have an issue with how this dress is really long in the body. I felt like the body length of the dress was made for a taller person and the body length didn't hit me in the right places and contributed to the "gaping" even though the length of the skirt was fine. Unfortunately, straps are a hard fix when you can't sew a dress. Bottom line: if you are petite, have a small rib cage and not a long torso, you might have the same issues with this dress that I did. However I did enjoy that the dress hugged my curves and people loved the color at the black tie wedding.

Black tie birthday party

It was just too big and ill fitting on me. I did have to order the 2R instead of 2P. I'm not sure if it being a petite would have made that much difference. The color is more purplish violet than it appears in the RTR picture.

Holy Boobs!

I loved this dress when I saw it online and on the hanger, but when I put it on, all you could see was boobs. The deep V hit significantly lower on me than it did on the model and I would have felt incredibly uncomfortable wearing this dress in public. Needless to say, I did not wear it to the event.

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.

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!

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).

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!
