Stylist Review
Fabulous Red Dress for any Wedding or Party. This dress is fitted through the waist and hips, but is extremely comfortable yet elegant. This Badgley Mischka dress runs true to size, and has a little stretch but I would recommend sizing up for the back up if you are curvier. At 5'3, this dress hit at the knee and is great to show off your legs. This style has some room in the bust and is best for cup size A-C, and worn with a strapless bra with the racer back style. I would recommend pairing this dress with gold accessories, and gold strappy heels.

Classy red
Wore to a black tie optional wedding. Forgiving material and really comfortable all night! Got lots of compliments on the dress! I usually am between 2 and 4 and the 2 was better for me because I have a more straight, less curvy frame and this dress is supposed to be on the more fitted side. The 4 on me was a little loose in areas... I was nervous to rent because there weren't many reviews before me but I'm glad I took the plunge!

Killer simple and flattering res dress
Very fitted but comfortable to sit and walk. I did not wear a bra (just "headlight protectors"). Lots and lots of compliments- especially from men. Great pure and confident Red . Was able to zip myself in by myself very easily. Perfect dress to show off shoulders.

Vegas Awards Night
Rented five dresses for a week in Vegas. Favorite of my rentals. I ordered sizes larger than I typically would buy at a department store when really I should have went with a size two. Overall still happy with the fit and the perfect red color. Highly recommend.

Favorite dress!
Absolutely LOVED this dress. It was so comfortable! Fit true to size, snug but not too tight. Didn't need a bra which is a huge plus! Can't wait to rent this in another color!

Lady in red
Striking color, great conservative length, fit true to size. My only complaint was that the straps dig in quite a bit when I sat but otherwise very happy with rental. Wish I got a full-body picture!

Very flattering!
Fit very well. I liked the way the 4 fit a little bit better, it was smoother at the hip area and didn't bunch but I wore the 6 because the seem at the slip was pulling a bit and I didn't want it to tear. I would rent this again, or even buy the dress I loved it, the neckline is very flattering!

Never been more comfortable or felt sexier!
This was actually a backup dress to a backup dress, but I honestly loved wearing it more than any of the others. The fit was perfect, the size 12 zipped up no problem, I didn't need Spanx under it or anything. I wore this to a Sunday afternoon wedding at a presidential library, so I felt sexy but was still covered appropriately. I have put on a significant amount of weight in the last year, so I was very anxious about wearing this dress because it is fitted, but it was 100% perfect. I'll definitely be renting this again, probably in all of the colors available.

The look and color are amazing !!
This dress fits amazingly! It was perfect around the hips and rear area. It was the perfect dress to wear to my graduation party. It also was perfect and comfortable. The fabric is very slimming and breathable it's not too tight I did lose some weight so my size 8 was a bit bigger in the waste area because my waist is bigger than my rear and hips and thighs. So for those who have a smaller waist I would recommend going to a size 6, To avoid wrinkling. Otherwise it was amazing!

Perfect Red Dress
Wore for a work gala - great last minute dress for the price. The 4 gave me a little more room to breathe than the 2, but could have made it work with a bit more Spandex. Highly recommended!

Graduation to Winery
Perfect fit and True to size! I am 120lbs and 34A, this dress fit perfectly. The material is not too heavy, but heavy enough to hide under garment lines. I'm a little short (5'4) so it fell under my knees and was a little longer than I wanted. This is a killer dress, red hot in every way. Highly recommend it!

I wore this dress for the Northwestern Brain Tumor Institute Gala, which was black tie optional.
I ordered the 2 and 4, but ended up wearing the 2, which is my usual size. If you are smaller on the top and a bit bigger on the bottom like I am, the dress ends up a little big in the waist. The fabric was stretchy and very comfortable. The coloring is a true candy apple/fire engine red. It looks great with gold jewelry. I wore it with black shoes last minute because it ended up being colder outside than predicted. I think it would have looked better with nude shoes.

So Sexy!
The fit was so flattering. I wore the smaller size to be more form fitting. I got compliments from men all night! I would have never been able to buy a dress that sexy so renting it was the perfect solution. I will definitely be renting again in the future. It was so easy! I just have to remember to take a picture next time!!

Bit of an awkward fit
I wore this dress on my birthday to work and then out to dinner. It was good for a day, but I wouldn't rent it again because the fit is abut awkward. It was really tight around my hips/butt, but a little too loose at the chest and the high neckline was uncomfortable when I sat down. I loved the colour, but the awkward fit is why I gave it three stars.

I got so many compliments all night long!
This was my first time using Rent the Runway and I selected this dress to wear to a wedding in early June. I am usually a size 8, but ordered both an 8 and a 10 based on other users reviews. The 8 fit, but I felt more comfortable in the 10 so I ended up wearing that one. The dress was comfortable with a good amount of stretch. It does hug your curves, so I wore spanx underneath just to smooth everything out. I felt sexy yet classy and I got a ton of compliments all night long! One of my friends is now going to try this same dress for a wedding she has next weekend. I paired this dress with gold jewelry and nude strappy heels. I would highly recommend this dress and would order it again!

Nice Dress, but not for a busty girl!
Didn't wear because I needed to wear a strapless bra and you could see the bra in the arm holes. Great color and fit otherwise.

I wore this for my bridal shower.
I loved this dress, but as a petite woman who usually wears a size 0, I found it to be rather large in the thighs/hips and a little long as well. Overall it was fine and I still wore it, but if it were mine I would have had it tailored.

Beautiful red dress, so comfortable!
Fit was true to size and very comfortable. Dress was a beautiful material, not too thin or thick. I was worried about my gut sticking out too much but actually felt more comfortable in it without spanx, as the spanx seemed to add more unflattering angles. I felt more and more comfortable and confident as the night wore on. Gorgeous dress and photographs beautifully. Almost didn't receive it when UPS mistakenly shipped it back to RTR but a quick chat session cleared that up and I had it by 6 the following day- so good to order for 2 days before event! Just in case!

Perfect Engagement Picture Dress!
I wore this dress for my engagement pictures, and felt that it was perfect! It made me feel sexy and confident, and I go so many complements while wearing it! I normally wear a size 4, and was able to in this dress as well. It was a little snug in the armpits, but not uncomfortable. Would definitely recommend this dress!

Lady in red
I rented this dress for a wedding rehearsal dinner. My boyfriend loves the color red, and when I saw this dress on RTR, it was a no brainer! It's the perfect length (in my opinion) for a cocktail dress. I am very curvy, 5'6" and a half, 155 lbs and I was really struggling with picking a size 6 or 8. I was already renting another dress for the black tie wedding for the next evening, so I already used my free second size option. I took a wild guess by looking at the photos other women have posted here. By other posts, it seemed as though this dress runs a little bit bigger. I was looking for more of a form fitting look, so I am glad I went with the size six. The size 8 probably would have been a little bit more comfortable, but I loved the overall look of the size 6. This dress definitely calls for spanx for curvier women, to help hold it all in. The material is very forgiving and the top portion was so tight, I didn't need to wear a bra. I loved the stress so much, and so did my boyfriend! I received many compliments throughout the night and I would definitely rent it again or recommend it!

Fit like a glove
Sometimes your boyfriend tells you he wants you to wear a red dress fora night out...so you rent this amazing piece. This dress was incredible. Fabric had just enough give to be form fitting and comfortable, and the size 6 cut was absolute perfection. Lots of compliments and I felt like a million bucks. Would definitely rent again.

A stunner
Perfect fit and a true red. The racer back adds something to it for sure. It's not stretchy, it falls really well and was tight enough on top I didn't need a bra. The high neck can get a little annoying but I survived :-)

Great Little Red Dress!
I love this dress! I'm 12 weeks pregnant so I wish I would have sized up even one more size, as it was a little snug, but I still loved it! If I wasn't pregnant, I feel it would have fit true to size. Got compliments on the color and felt beautiful! Was able to dance and move easily and I would definitely rent this dress again!

"Lady in Red"
Very flattering fit, compliments on the vibrant color all night. Ordered a size up based on reviews, but ended up wearing my usual size 4. I am 34D, 5'3", 128 lbs with athletic body and curvy hips. No problems with a strapless bra, although with the taut material and lining, I would have been okay without. Will rent this dress again in another color!

Loved the color and neckline!
I'm 5'8 and pushing 200 pounds, but still usually wear a size 12. I ordered a 14 as backup and didn't even bother trying on the 12 because the 14 was already super tight! I'm bottom heavy, so it was particularly tight around my hips. The top was okay (I'm a 36C). I liked that this dress was knee length to balance the sexiness of the color and cut. The fabric was heavy enough to not show every bump and bulge, but I wore a shaper to hold in my stomach a little. Overall this dress is a great choice, but if you're curvy size up!

Slimming and comfortable.
I got a lot of compliments on this dress. It was easy to walk in and comfortable throughout the whole night. Everyone kept telling me how slimming it looked on! Very simple, classy and elegant. I found it to be true to size. It does have a little give to the fabric.

Turns heads!
Second time I have worn a dress from this designer and it hits all the curves just right. It was a little tighter than a 14 normally runs, I should have ordered a 16 just to try on. Pros: -Petal friendly; no bra needed for this medium bust! -Spanx friendly; because who needs to eat and breathe at these things anyways? -Dancing friendly for sure -Makes great first impressions -Makes you feel like a hot tamale or hollywood star -Great fabric Cons (few and far between): -high neck= slight choking if sitting down for the first time.
