Red hot dress
The dress was prefect for a summer wedding! It was a little tight when I sat down, but it was great for dancing! The fabric is a nice material and a great color. I received compliments all night long, and was sad to have to return it. Would rent again.

So many compliments!
Ordered a 4 and 6 and ended up in the 4. I normally wear between a 4-6. Dress was snug but fit in all the right places.

I usually wear a size 0 in Badly Mischka- this neckline is very tight so I wore the size two.
Very comfortable and great option for a more conservative red dress for a family affair vs. date night.

Love this color!
This dress was form-fitting but still very comfortable. I went with the larger size even though I fit into the smaller size just fine. I gave myself a little "wiggle" room to account for dancing and eating :)

Show stopper!
Loved this piece, classy and sexy all in one! I'm typically a size 4 but ended up wearing the size 2 to better show off my curves. The only complaint was that I'm 5'3 and even with heels on it looked a little too long, used some fashion tape for some last minute alterations and it worked like a charm! I'm also a 34D and was able to go bra-less! Very comfortable and classic.

Overall, the dress fit well. I wore shapewear with the size 6, though it looked fine without. The color was amazing! A real head-turner!

Very cute but didn't like the fit for a wedding. It was more form fitting than I like. Would be good for vegas or a fancy date night

I wore this dress to my rehearsal dinner and absolutely loved it!
I am usually a size 4 but wanted to wear a more fitted style and went with the 2. The material was very comfortable!

Great vibrant dress!
I loved this dress and revived many compliments! The size 2 fit (although pretty tight) comfortably- the size up was a bit too loose up top. As seen in this photo, the hem came somewhat undone, but otherwise this is a very elegant yet fun dress!

Very flattering, beautiful color.
Fits like a glove, but I still found it flattering. I loved the bright red. I wish it was a bit thicker, as my strapless bra showed through at times. I would recommend spanx to smooth things out. Overall, I loved it and got many compliments.

Hot, hot, hot! I loved wearing this dress and felt super SEXY in it.
Fit perfectly, true to size. I am 5'2" and go between a size 0 and a size 2. I got both sizes in this dress and went with the 0 because the 2 wasn't snug around the arms enough. The snug fit is balanced by the longer length making this a sexy but classy dress which was exactly what I was looking for. Wore this with a simple cream pump and it was perfect!

Great Wedding Dress
The dress fit amazingly, and really hugs your curves in a good way. I felt like you could see my stomach "fat" so I wore a pair of spanx and was good to go! I received a ton of compliments on the dress throughout the night. It was comfortable to dance in, and photographed really well. I went with a strapless sticky bra (which normally does work for me) but the tighter fit of the dress around my chest held everything in place!

Perfect dress, love rent the runway!
This was the first rent the runway and it was a great experience! The dress fit well, it seemed a little bit long and loose in areas, but i think one size down would have been too tight. Another review is correct that the neckline can get tight when you're sitting down, but if you adjust a little before you sit it's perfectly fine. Great wedding guest or formal event dress! Look forward to renting for future weddings.

Red show-stopper!
This dress was *awesome*! It was very comfortable and very flattering. There is some stretch to it so it doesn't feel constricting and dancing in it was fun and easy. I wore a strapless bra but I think you could wear a racer back and make that work, as well. I felt sexy in a sophisticated way and did not want to return this dress. If you're on the fence about the red color--don't be! It's a lovely shade that'll make you look like a million bucks and turn plenty of heads. Two happy thumbs up from this RTR girl!

The dress made me stand out at the wedding and I received so many compliments on it!
The fit overall was a bit small so definitely go a size up. It was slightly tight around the waist area for me, so I wore spanx and I felt a whole lot better. The fabric is flattering overall, the length was perfectly classy for a wedding event. There is some room in the bust area if you a have larger bust which was nice. I wore a strapless bra with it, but you could wear none and get away with it too. The length hit about 3-4 inches above my knee. Sitting down in it was okay, not too too tight where I was uncomfortable, but felt a slight pull. Overall the dress was fantastic, the color was amazing, it was classy, and it was majorly comfortable.

Rented for a birthday dinner with family
I rented this specifically because I got new red bottoms and I wanted the reds to match, and they matched perfectly! I'm 5'11" and the dress hit me right above the knee (appropriate for a family dinner) which I was pleased with. I didn't wear a bra with it because it literally fit like a glove, the only complaint about it fitting like a glove was that I have wider hips so it was snug. Other than that, the dress is more red-orange than a deep set red in the photos but I love love loved the color!

I got SO many compliments on this beautiful dress. The color is magnificent.
A bit long as I am short, but still very beautiful! I was torn between this and another dress and could only pack one pair of shoes to go with either - the silver looked beautiful with the red, but you can easily wear black, nude, gold (the list goes on and on) shoes!

Red is always a showstopper and this doesn't disappoint. I love Badgley Mischka gowns.
The fit was excellent, except a bit of space under the armpit, near the bust. I found myself spilling out a bit; adjustable straps would've helped with that. the torso and fit really well. Lots of compliments. I will definitely order this dress again. I'm 5.1 and the length was perfect.

Felt amazing in this standout dress!!
I rented this dress for a black tie optional wedding in July--my favorite rental to date! I ordered size 2 and backup size 0--the 2 fit like a glove. The cut accentuated my figure (and the fabric wasn't too heavy for July heat/humidity) while still allowing me to dance all night, and the color stood out in a sea of black and navy. The only *slight* negative is that the fit around the neck could be tight when sitting, but not enough to be an issue. I paired with a Slate & Willow gold-studded choker (also from RTR-- I highly recommend it as well!), simple studs, and nude shoes. Got compliments all night long and would definitely rent again!

Great color!
Really loved the fit and color of this dress, it's true fire engine red. The straps dig in a little at the top when you're sitting but besides that it was great! I'm a 34DDD so it was tight on top but I didn't wear a bra so it still fit.

Gorgeous red pop against dress blues
The color was gorgeous and the fit was just right! Wore this for my husband's graduation from Warrant Officer School. It worked well for the semi-formal daytime event and could be dressed up even more for an evening event. It was a little long on my 5'3 frame and the neck was tight at times. Overall I loved it and would rent again.

I was so excited to wear this dress to a party but when it came, it didn't fit at all. It was tight
Pros: The dress was cute Cons: It was too tight around my mid section and upper area. It was uncomfortable. I tried on the regular dress which was a 16 and that one was uncomfortable. I gave up at that point and threw on a regular dress I have in my closet. I wasn't excited anymore for the event but it was whatever at that point.

Fits true to size. I'm very narrow in the hips and it was a teensie bit big around there, but nothing spanks couldn't fix. I'd already rented the long version of this dress, so it was fun to have it again, but short!

The dress material and cut was very flattering. It was comfortable yet felt formal and sexy enough for the event. Runs a bit big as I normally wear a size 4 and wore a size 2. Would definitely recommend and rent again!

Like other reviewers say, this dress fits in all the right places and the red really stands out. Comfortable and classy. The material is not super breathable so might be hot for an outdoor summer event. Got compliments as soon as I walked out the door!
