It was for my engagement pictures
The top was a little big but I used double sided tape and it was fine.

Went to a late afternoon gala where the dress code was "summer elegant" - tons of compliments!
tight in the bust area because of the fabric - required help zipping, but a sold fit everywhere else! would definitely wear again!

It worked.
My original dress did not fit so this was the "panic" dress. I can't say the fit was my favorite but I did love the pattern and the material. The 10L probably would have fit better but it was not available. This dress literally arrived 3 hours before my event. There is a lot of material on the top and I felt it made me look larger than I already am. If I had some prep time, I think double sided tape would have done the trick. The length was good even with inch heels and that never happens when you're my height!

Wish I Had!
The fit was absolutely perfect. My regular size 12 for another dress wasn't going to make it in time so I was offered another dress in addition to my back up size for the original one I intended to wear. Back up size ended up fitting perfectly so didn't have a chance to wear this one. Would definitely rent again! I loved the cleavage as it was just the right amount for me.

Beautiful dress
I wore this dress for a summer wedding in California wine country. Unfortunately the original dress I had reserved was no longer available to ship but RTR was able to promptly ship this dress out with no complications. Because of the short notice, the only size close to mine that was available was 10L (I'm 5'5") so it was definitely a little long on me but beautiful nonetheless. A little big on the bust (I'm a 36D) but a carefully positioned safety pin was able to do the trick. Definitely would recommend wearing this dress.

Lovely comfortable flowy dress
This dress is incredibly well made! It is so flowy and light but still had 2 layers of lining so it was not see through at all. It was perfect for a 78 degree Chicago summer wedding. I wanted a maxi dress because I didn't want to have cross my legs all night long and to hide kinesiotape that I need on my knees every day. This fit the bill. My husband loved the dress on me! I wore a size 20 because after 3 kids in the last 4 years I need a forgiving dress. This was forgiving it a lot of ways. Some maxi dresses make me relook pregnant again but this did not. My chest is a 38 DDD and I often have a hard time finding dresses that fit well enough on top and aren't too long or too big everywhere else. This dress for my chest size was too big. The arm opening area was huge in the armpit to the point that I was constantly worried my undergarment would show. Also it was so big on top that the back of the neckline kept hiking up on me (I'm 5'6") that the zipper would catch in my hair at the nap of my neck. Other than that it was a great dress. I was worried it would be too long and it was alright with 2 inch heels. Flats, I would have been stepping on it. Overall, a pretty dress. This was my first experience with RTR and I am trying it again in November.

This dress was the perfect summer Maxi for my best friends bridal shower! The fit was great!
LOVED the fit! The long was a little too long for me but I had high heels I wanted to wear with it so I thought it would be good. The 16 fit great and I was able to wear a bra with it no problem!

Way too small in the bust for such a flowing dress
Gorgeous and conservative dress. Very very long. I'm 5'9" and tried 3+ inch heels and it was still too long in the 4L.

Beautiful
This was a great dress! It's lightweight and the material is beautiful. It's fully lined underneath and is not sheer at all. There's plenty of room on top for large chested women. Most dresses are too long on me, but this was a nice length. It fit perfectly with a heel. (I'm 5'4.)

Flirty and flowy!
Although I could fit in the 8, it was a bit tight in the armpits. The 10 was perfect! I was also able to get access to my girls so I could nurse my 6 month old son throughout the evening. The dress was flower and comfortable. I'm almost 5'8 and wore flats and the dress was a bit long. If I was up for small heels it would have been perfect. Very happy with this dress, it was beautiful for the summer wedding! I would definitely recommend.

pretty print
i rented this dress for a wedding i attended as a guest. the print is gorgeous. the fit was slightly off for me- i have a very large hip/butt area & the gathered material on the side is a little problematic. i probably needed a 16 on top and the 20 for my bottom, but made the 18 work with some adjustments to wear the dress hung on my body. as a result the dress was too short for me to wear heels (darn!) so i would suggest having some flats on hand if you have a similar body type.

This dress made me feel like a princess!!!
I'm a 34 DD and the top was still big on me. I have just lost weight and I ordered both the 14L and 16L the 14 is what I wore. I received so many compliments and this was the easiest dress I have ever worn. I was even able to wear a normal bra with this dress! Would def consider ordering it again for another wedding!!!

This dress made me feel so beautiful. I wish I would have worn a NuBra with this or at least a nude colored bra! I didn't realize how much of my bra would peek out throughout the night. True to size. I'm 5'6" and wore with 4 inch heels, the length on the 14 long was perfect. Don't miss this one, you won't be disappointed!

Gorgeous as a maternity dress
The chest is definitely low, but can be easily covered with a tank top for a more modest look. This dress is so beautiful. I wore it as a maternity dress, and everyone absolutely loved it. It hugs your body, yet allowed sufficient room for my growing baby. I really don't want to return it! Mommys-to-be will especially love this dress.

I was worried this dress would be dressy, but it can be worn casual with some fun accessories. Rented for vacation and loved it -- the light colors and pattern are beautiful. I'm short, so it is difficult to find maxi dresses that are the right length, but this one was perfect.

From wizard lunch to the symphony in the same day.
This dress is gorgeous and I felt fabulous wearing it. It is not for anyone who wants good chest coverage though. The cut is beautiful and the dress stays in place well, so what starts out covered stays covered. The waist is tight with no stretch, but everything else about the fit of the dress is comfortable. At 5'4 (and a half) I was able to wear flats without any issue. The dress floats out of the way when you walk. If you are thinking of wearing it to an outdoor event in summer in someplace like Florida, be prepared to be hot. There are two layers of not that breathable lining underneath the beautiful outer layer.

Beautiful fabric and fit- didn't want to return!
One of my favorite rentals from RTR! Fabric was light and forgiving, I didn't need the long with 3 inch wedges. I'm short-waisted, so the dress bunched in the back but you couldn't tell due to the fabric. I pinned the front to keep my undergarments from showing, but I was totally comfortable all night! So many compliments and I wish I could keep it forever!

Elegant gown, but wasn't fitted enough
I rented this dress for an outdoor wedding. The pattern of this dress is beautiful and it's very elegant, but I had a couple issues with it. 1) The fabric is NOT breathable. I was very warm the entire time!! 2) The cut of the dress wasn't fitted enough around the torso for me. I ended up having to belt it to give it a decent shape. I've had this same issue with other dresses by this designer (Badgley Mishka), and won't rent one again. They're just not flattering for women with narrow waists.

Comfortable and light
This was a back up sent in replacement of the dress I ordered. This was a beautiful dress. Easy to wear and I did not feel like I was falling out up top (40 DDD) which is saying something. I was a little pale skinned for the color of the dress in my opinion, but felt beautiful. The lining is a little snug around my hips but I am a curvy girl.

This was a backup dress sent to me for a black tie wedding. It was not dressy enough for a black tie at all. It has no stretch. It was also very long. I had at least an extra 4 inches extra with 3 inch heels. It's light and flowy and very pretty.

Got a lot of great compliments on this dress, and it was so comfortable. Danced all night long!
The only con of this dress is if you're busty (I'm a 36D) and have narrow shoulders it'll be a bit revealing. I had to size up from an 8 to a 10 because it would zip over my bust, but then when the 10 fit my bust, the straps were a bit loose. I ended up safety pinning to my bra to avoid a wardrobe malfunction. This happens to me with a lot of dresses unfortunately, but if you have a small upper torso and a large bust I'd invest in some double sided tape or safety pins. But otherwise I loved the dress. The flowy nature and pattern were great and I got many compliments.

Beautiful!
Gorgeous gown! I am 6'1 and was concerned about the length but the 18T was perfect, wearing flats it hit the top of my foot. It was a colder day out so I wore it with a black linen jacket. I normally wear a 16 and the 16 did fit, but was a little tight so I opted to wear the back up size. Felt comfortable and beautiful.

Pretty dress but not great for moving around a lot
Loved the look of this dress. I work at a school and like to wear a maxi dress sometimes since they feel light and easy. The fabric was flowed nicely and the colors were lovely but it was so long! I kept tripping over it even in a 3" wedge. I'm a traveling teacher so I move from classroom to classroom so it became some what of a challenge to hold up the fabric while I move. It was the regular size and I'm 5'6" so if you're average height you may want to consider a higher heel or perhaps not this dress if you'll be walking around a lot.

Loved this dress for the rehearsal dinner
It was a little snug and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to wear it but I was able to. It is low cut but very pretty, I was able to wear a bra with it even though it was low cut. It was a tad too long for me so I almost tripped a few times by it was really a non issue. Received a lot of compliments on this dress and I felt fabulous in it. Can't go wrong with Badgley Mischka and RTR.

Great dress - very comfortable and flattering.
I wore this dress to a formal gala for work. It was totally appropriate for work, yet still fun and flattering. The 4L was still a little shorter than I had hoped, but it was fine. I had to hold the skirt up to go up stairs, but that's to be expected. Lots of compliments!

Beautiful Smoky Mountain Wedding
The dress fit true to size in the torso and was comfortable to wear. The skirt is full and flowing and was fun for dancing. However, I found it oddly long in the front (I am 5'8") after I took my shoes off for the dancing but fine when I was wearing my wedges. I wore a push-up bra underneath and probably didn't need to (I am a 38B-C) because I felt I kept self-consciously checking the front to make sure my bra wasn't showing. I say this because a normal bra would probably have worked for me, but the push-up was the only one I had that I felt would have been low enough for the V-neck in the front. I have rented several dresses from RTR and found that this was mine and my husband's least favorite dress. It is just "blah" pattern-wise and style-wise. It wasn't a show-stopper and didn't make me feel amazing. Just not as special as some of the other ones I've rented, but comfortable and fine for this wedding/venue.

The dress was flowing and beautiful, but very, very long. I'm 5'9, and had to wear 3" heels.
Loved the pattern, the fabric, the flow. Got a few compliments. Through the rib cage it was a little snug, and as the night went on, it seemed that my chest was popping out a bit more. But loved it, and would definitely rent this one again.

Head Turner
I wore this gorgeous maxi for an evening out for my birthday. My original Trina Turk was damaged, and RTR replaced it with this beauty. Rent the Runway is absolutely THE BEST! I'm 5'6", 131 lbs, and the 4R fit perfectly. The zipper was a little sticky, not because it was too tight but just because it seems like the zippers on these rentals are always sticky. But with the help of my hubby, he got it just fine. The dress has great movement and sways as you walk. I was able to wear a strapless bra with no issues. I matched it with some wedges, Elise M. Madagascar Gold Arrow Earrings, Elaine Turner cork bag, and baby pink mat nails. I got tons of comments on the look all night. Our bartender told me that my look was 'on point', and I agree! I felt like a 10! There was a big table of girls celebrating a bachelorette at the restaurant, and later on my husband told me that as we were walking out, their conversation totally stopped as I walked by. I would definitely recommend this dress.
