Gorgeous drape! So many compliments!

This dress was stunning! I got compliments all night long! The cut and drape are just phenomenal. Shows a little leg and perfectly framed my tattoos. The bodice was a teeny bit tight when I first put it on but I got used to it. The waist hit perfectly at my natural waist so I didn't even need to wear spanx! Dancing was fun because of how it moved. Highly recommended for any black tie or formal events! Rose gold jewelry went perfectly with it.

Showstopper

Prepare to feel like an Oscar. Friends, family, strangers... everyone complimented me on this dress. I felt statuesque, elegant, and downright amazing. The fabric is a little "rough". So if you have sensitive skin, I would not recommend. The fabric also has very little give. I would size up, and then size down for your backup. Even a little big, this dress just falls into place. I am 5'6" and I was tripping over the "long". Even in heals. Tall ladies, this dress would be perfect.

Beautiful and Fun

This dress was a backup dress for a wedding, and I came so close to wearing it except for a rip in the seam at the zipper! Sadness. As noted in other reviews, the location of the seam at the waist and the fact that the fabric has no elasticity means there's zero forgiveness there. I disagree with some of the negative reviews that the fabric is overly heavy. It's got some weight to it - enough so that it doesn't feel very "floaty" - but definitely didn't feel like I was wearing my mother's drapes like I read elsewhere! I wouldn't have needed a bra for this because of the texture and lack of stretch in the fabric, but ymmv.

Great flattering dress for tall ladies

I have a smaller waist but a larger hip-thigh area and this was the perfect high/low dress. Very flattering

Stunning fabric and flattering cut

This dress is so pretty when the light hits it and is very flattering on the body. The ruby color is gorgeous; especially when the gold glimmers.

Tons of compliments!

I wore this to a formal gala and had to present on stage. I needed something unique that was unlikely to be replicated, and this dress hit the mark 100%! Very flattering top, and the flowy bottom made it easy to move. Stunning but comfortable!

Too Small for Busty Girls

I picked this dress as a back up and I'm glad because neither the 10 (my actually size) or the 12 fit me. I sized up to the 12 because my chest is so large I was worried the 10 might be too snug, but neither dress fit. The dress was really pretty and I liked it a lot, but there is absolutely no give at all and it is a little small. So if you have a larger chest size up a couple sizes. If I were to rent this again I honestly think I may need a 14 or 16.

The length and cut are perfect, but if you have a wider back, or high rib cage, go up a size. It's narrow around the chest area. Beautiful gown.

Amazing dress!

I loved this dress! It was super elegant and got a ton a compliments! It was a little loose in the chest on me, but I am not big chested so not really the dresses fault! The length was perfect with heels, I switched to flats after my feet started aching and it still wasn't super long/dragging the floor! Made me feel like a queen!

I LOVED THIS DRESS. SO MANY COMPLIMENTS!

I wore this dress to a Mardi Gras Masquerade Ball and it was PERFECT. It fit like a glove, was perfect for dancing and had a stand out cut! I wish I had a better picture of it. I would love to wear it again!

Burgundy beauty

This dress is gorgeous and received many compliments. I normally wear a 16 and ordered a size 20 because I was so nervous about the fit for a last minute affair. It was big, but beautiful nonetheless. I might even rent it again in an 18 :)

Stunningly unique

This dress was perfect for showing some skin, while remaining modest. It was an absolute beautiful dress, with exquisite detailing. It had such a flattering fit, complementing your waist while helping hide some possible insecurities. This was my first rental and after having this great experience, I'm sure it won't be my last.

Beautiful unique dress

I wore this dress for my cousins wedding. The slit in the dress was the deciding factor between this dress and another one I rented. It was the perfect length for my 3 inch heels. The fabric is amazing and it was true to size. I had no cons for this dress. I felt beautiful.

Versatile even though I didn't get the size I wanted

I'm an unlimited customer so there weren't many options in my size for a weekend during prom season. I would have rented the 4S, but they only had a 6L. Despite that, the 6 fit well (just a little extra fabric around the waist) and even though it was very long on me, with the uneven hemline and some good heels it didn't look too crazy. Was a little wintery for a spring event, but would be great for a holiday party!

Fabulous design and fit like a glove!

I've known for a while that Badgley Mischka dresses fit me perfectly, but this one knocked it out of the park! It was a backup to my backup, and I was super nervous about how it would work for my event - an annual gala for a large arts organization. The fabric was heavy enough to drape nicely (shout-out to the beautiful decorative seaming on the waist!) but not too hot with a skinny strap shoulder and the peek that comes up to knee-ish level. Def not your Grandma's curtains - the fabric is a maroon and gold layering of both semi sheer and solid sections. It breathes really well. (And our event saw 80' temps ahead of an evening start!) I'm 5'8" and wore a regular length, so I could still move quickly while working the event. It swept just above the floor in flats and still looked long with a 1.5" heel. Anything higher would need a long length. Also if you have prominent collarbones and sculpted arms, this dress does them a million favors! Wholeheartedly recommended for my fellow womxn that can lift heavy and dress it up!

Flattering, classy, modern & fun!

I really liked the dress. The neckline was very flattering. The seam between the bodice & skirt made zip up a little struggle for me, but I'm very high waisted and have kind of a wide rib cage for my size. Also, I used a touch of Hollywood tape to keep the neck at its highest which helped the whole dress to lay well on me, and minimized any puckering by the arms. I danced the night away!

Perfect dress for the gala I attended

I loved this dress. Got lots of compliments, and I thought it was very comfortable. My one regret was not getting a long size, I'm 5'7" and the dress worked with the flats I ended up wearing, but I wish I could've worn heals. So if you are 5'7" and above go tall.

Wore this to the 2019 Tony Awards!

I felt absolutely beautiful! The dress was incredible I got lots of compliments. I am so glad I discovered rent the runway and could wear such a beautiful dress to a once in a lifetime event! Since this was my first RTR, I had issues with the sizing, I'm normally a 12/14 but I had to go up quite a few sizes for this dress to fit because of my large chest.

Was a little loose in the chest area which I normally do not have a problem with - put a padded bra on and that helped.

So pretty!

The top definitely ran a bit small. The rest of me could have fit into a smaller size, but the halter part of the dress would not close over my chest. But that could have also been a breast size issue.

Tight through ribcage so didn't wear.

It was really tight through my ribcage and bust so I didn't wear it. I'm 5'9 and the Long touched the floor when I was barefoot so in heels, would have been a little short. Would have been cute otherwise.

Great dress, lot of compliments.

I'm 5'8, size 12, and dress length was perfect with a 4 inch heel. The only negative for me was the seam at the waist. It was a tad too tight, and cut a little into my tummy, causing a little bit of a bulge (I was able to mostly hide it though, with a miraclesuit), but if the seam was any tighter and it would have been uncomfortable.
