Pretty but very heavy
This was a very pretty dress but it has two under layers under the skirt to help it be 'flowy'. These layers are heavy and make the dress noisy when you walk. They also make the dress very hot. It was a 100 degree day the day I had planned on wearing this, so I couldn't wear it otherwise I would have been way too hot.

Beautiful dress
High quality dress, but the chest was very large and the dress was too long for me to wear.

beautiful dress - impeccable quality
beautiful dress - the overall fit is good however it probably looks better on someone with a larger bust - I'm a small C and the top was definitely too loose - may try a size down with some cutlets!!! I'm also 5-3 and even with 4" heels it was a bit long. So sad it didn't fit better.

Vibrant flowers blossomed in a room of monochromatic dresses
Chose this dress as a backup for a wedding and ended up liking both dresses so much I decided to wear this one to the rehearsal dinner. The length is perfect for 5'6" me to wear even tiny heels, as I ended up doing because we walked about a half mile to the event as the weather was beautiful. It is comfortable to move in, sit in, and eat in. It flows and feels light weight. The bust was a little big, so I pinned it in case I didn't have perfect posture--otherwise I would have flashed my bra. And a regular bra works perfectly! The empire waist was so slimming--I have wide hips and big bottom--so the snug waist and A frame flowy skirt was perfect! Only drawback was the perfume and dry cleaning chemical odor it had. It either aired out or I stopped noticing after an hour.

Loved this!
I wore this to an outdoor wedding with an indoor reception, and I absolutely loved it! It was super comfortable, and I received several compliments throughout the evening. The only cons with the dress were that 1) the bust fit a little big so you could see down the top to my bra, but I was able to safety pin it and fix that, and 2) because of the layered fabric around the waist it was a little difficult to zip, but I was able to manage with some help from the BF. I was a little worried it would be too short, but I wore flat sandals and the regular length was perfect (I'm 5'10"). Overall, a lovely dress that I was sad to send back!

Beautiful dress!
Thanks to unexpected rain, I wore the dress with a white blazer. I paired the ensemble with a pair of 4 inch heels and loved the length. I took the picture with bare feet and the dress barley swept the floor. I loved the way the dress fit and flowed behind me. The colors were perfect for a spring event. My only issue was the rough zipper area. I took great caution when zipping it up because of the condition of he fabric around the zipper.

So many compliments!
This dress was perfect for an evening black tie charity event. It was a bit short so I had to change to a shorter heel. The under slip was a bit thick making the dress heavy. Be mindful of wearing for a day event. I loved this dress!

Lots of compliments!
I loved wearing this dress and felt so beautiful in it! I received lots of compliments and told everyone exactly where I got it! It was perfect for the occasion and fun to wear. It was a little tight around the rib cage and came with a slight hole around the waist. I also felt like it was slightly short and I might have planned to wear different shoes if I had known this (I am 5'8"). Otherwise I had a great time dancing the night away!

Large on top
The dress was very beautiful, however was rather large up top. I am a 36D and the top was still too big on the size 10. Since it was too large I opted not to wear the dress as it made me look large.

I loved this dress, when i saw it in person my mouth dropped.
Perfect for the formal wedding I attended. Very beautiful and very comfortable. I'm a 34dd and the chest area of the dress fit well. I was able to wear a strapless bra with out it showing. You will need help with the zipper in the back. There's no way to zip it on your own. Also, if you're concerned about the bust area, it's easy to disguise a safety pin. My only con is the length of the dress. I'm 5'5 and wasn't able to wear heels. If you're 5'5+, order the long if you plan on wearing heels.

Fun summer gala gown!
This fit well, allowed for a non-flat belly and worked with a demi-bra. It's low cut, but not so much so that I didn't feel ok to wear around work colleagues. Very pretty, flowing fabric. I got lots of compliments, and it fit the semioutdoor setting well. Very comfortable. I wore a long half slip underneath, but probably didn't have to. Would recommend skin-tone panties/bra. I wore the long with 2 1/2 inch heels and it worked well (5'8"), and could have worn higher which would have looked nice as well.

This dress was elegant, comfortable, and had great movement!
I loved wearing this dress! My fiance was a groomsman in a wedding so I wanted something slightly more formal (he was in a tux) but still appropriate for a warm spring outdoor wedding. There was some cleavage but nothing overly revealing about it. I am apple shaped so the waist was snug but not uncomfortable. I thought it gave excellent waist definition, which I don't naturally have. I am 5'1" and the length was perfect with 2 inch wedges. Would wear this again in a heartbeat!

black tie event
My mom wore this dress for an event we go to annually. She is very busty and she loved it! I was hard to zip but that was due to the band on fabric around the waist. She got so many compliments all night though and loved the comfort of the dress as well.

Perfect dress for outdoor wedding
Fit well but top runs big and I'm a 34DDD. Garment tape would have been useful for the top to hide bra but I just went without a bra and had no issues. I wore the long with 3in heels. Would have worked with flats if I'd ordered the regular length. I got a lot of compliments!

Amazing dress!
Dress was true to size however I had to use garment tape because its a little loose on the chest area and has a deep v-cut and it worked fine. I wore 4' heels and I was able to dance the night away without stepping on it. The dress was really amazing, the flowers were vibrant and the material was very flowy I enjoyed twirling it in the dance floor. I got tons of compliments all night! I wish I could keep this Badgley Mischka dress. This is my first rental and I'm never buying a dress again!

Spring formal dress
Easy and comfortable dress with beautiful colors! In terms of length, I'm 5'6" and the dress fell just past my ankles but still showed my toes. With heels on, most of my feet were visible. Also worth noting is that the pleats and A-line cut definitely amplify your hips!

perfect dress for summer weddings
The dress fits perfectly. Very flattering. And it feels very comfortable. Love the flowery designs. Looks fabulous. I'm almost 5'9" and 2L is a bit long for me, as I don't like to wear super high heels. I had to wear a pair of 3inch+ shoes to make it work. It would just hang to the floor great. I paired it with an RTR necklace.

Perfect for a summer wedding
Very comfortable and pretty dress that was perfect for a wedding with an ambiguous dress code. I got complements all night! It was the perfect length with flat sandals (I'm 5'7"), so definitely go for the longer length if you are wearing heels.

Dress was so beautiful in person and was so comfortable! Got compliments all night.
Fit was good except in the bust. I'm a b cup and it was really loose, I had to pin it to keep it closed. Great flowy fabric, looked great inside and outdoors. I wore it with flats bc we were in a field and it was a touch long, but it worked fine. Loved this dress!!

Absolutely gorgeous!
The moment I slipped into this dress I felt beautiful! The fabric is so silky and airy and the dress just flows as you walk. Unfortunately, I forgot to get a full-length photo. I needed some fashion tape to keep the "girls" a little more covered as I was going to a wedding with many of my church members in attendance (I am a 38DDD). Otherwise the dress fit perfect. I paired it with neutral heels and gold jewelry. Perfect dress for a spring wedding that was held outdoors.

Loved this dress! It was comfortable and flattering.
I rented it for a friend's bridal shower. I am one of her bridesmaids. It was perfect for the atmosphere and I got a lot of complements. I'm larger chested and did need to wear a stretchy tank to keep the top from showing too much. It didn't detract at all from the beauty of the dress.

Stunning print, small in the bust
I so wanted this dress to work. It's such a flattering style, the material is perfectly flowy and the print is gorgeous! I sized up based on the reviews and because I have a large chest (36DD-DDD). Unfortunately, this dress did not zip over my chest so I wasn't able to wear it. If you have a large chest, size up and proceed with caution. Will try this again in the future... :)

RTR Team Review
I love the colors of this dress! The fit was perfect! I am wearing a size 4 in the photo and it does fit true to size. The dress is fitted in my midsection and waist but not my hips. I had room for my hips and felt very comfortable in the dress. I do recommend curvier women going a size up for a backup size. This dress is also great for any bust size. I am a 36D and felt very comfortable in the dress. This dress can also be worn with a standard bra. This dress would be perfect for a day time formal event such as a wedding or party. Pair with nude heels, colorful necklace and neutral earrings.
