I rented this dress for my engagement shoot and it did not disappoint! The quality was amazing!
Pros: The fit was perfect, the dress is very forgiving. The sequins were SO sparkly and the color was gorgeous. Cons: If you are busty this dress may pose a problem for you because you can absolutely not wear a bra with it.

Absolutely Stunning Dress! Showstopper!
This was not my initial choice because though I LOVED it, I didn't think this form fitting dress would be flattering on my body type, however when my original orders didn't work RTR was able to overnight me this dress from my heart list! And my oh my was it BEAUTIFUL! Absolutely glamorous and fit like a dream! (I went up a size because my other dresses I ordered were too small, though I probably could've gotten away with a smaller size this size was comfortable and roomy). The hidden zipper under the arm makes the dress extremely easy to get into and though awkward, it was manageable to get on without help (though I had help for the day of getting on and off) The dress was also supportive. Because of the open back, I went without a bra, and though busty, I felt well contained and comfortable. I was able to dance all night without a worry! I was sad to have to ship it back! I would definitely recommend it and definitely rent it again. If you want to be noticed and enjoy getting compliments from complete strangers this is the dress for you!

Comfortable, gorgeous, perfect!
This dress was an emergency replacement in my order, and I'm so glad it ended up with me! It fit like a glove - flattering, not too snug, easy to dance all night. The back is low, but not so low that you need a special bra. One of the most comfortable dresses I've ever worn. I got so many compliments!

Sparkling like a disco ball!
Pretty sure this dress got me and my sister added to the guest list at a club in Vegas!!! Loved everything about this dress. It was comfortable, sexy, and so blingy - perfect for our Vegas sister trip. The smaller size would've fit just fine if it wasn't for the top feeling a bit like it and was choking me. Next size up was perfect. If you are small chested like me (34A) you do not need to wear a bra with this. Also, pro-tip, there is a side zipper! originally without realizing this!

"You are rocking that dress " said the first woman who saw me.
Several reviews suggested using a stick on bra, so I did try on the dress at RTR with a stick on bra. That's the photo. But when I got home with the dress, I found that I could wear the dress with a regular bra. I ordered a size up as well as my regular 12, but the 12 fit just fine, in fact it fit better than I expected. Lots of compliments. Several women commented on how sparkly I looked. This was my first RTR rental and it went very well. I love the dress, and will rent it again!

Sparkly dress with awesome back
I rented this dress for my brothers wedding. I loved it and this is the second dress I rented with RTR and love Badgley Mischka. I found it a little big in front and arms but I didn't rent a 4 to try on - only the 6 )which I wore and the 8). The back made it a showstopper and got many compliments. You can wear a Shaw with this because of the sequins. I recommend hair up or off to the side (like I did) to show the back off. Also you don't need much jewelry since the dress shines on it on. I did notice some scratching under my arms the next day. But overall an awesome rental!

I had an amazing time with my friends at my Bachelorette party!
This dress was surprisingly stunning and comfortable in real life! I wasn't sold on it from the picture, especially since it was my second choice since my original pick wasn't available (which is super disappointing). That said, the dress fit nicely although for a 4 it seemed a little big on me and I probably could have gone with a 2 and had it fit EVEN better. I used push up stickies for my breasts and that worked great because this dress has a SUPER low (sexy) back. It's super shimmery and it looked SO AMAZING in the blacklight at my Bachelorette party nightclub!

Rented this for a wedding and it was perfect! It fit perfectly and made finding an outfit so easy! I'm 5'9" and bigger chested so it was a little shorter but I still felt comfortable all night! Absolutely loved it, returning was super easy, and I will definitely be back again to rent!

Eye Catching and comfy! Wishing it was mine to own!
This was my first rental from Rent the Runway and I couldn't have been more pleased! This dress is a great fit and very comfortable! Even with the sparkles! It's a little longer than I was expecting but the length gave the dress a classy appearance when paired with a pair of high heels. I received endless compliments on the dress and I wish I could've called it mine!

Ok for Hourglass shape
I was sent this dress as a backup. I received a size 16 and 18W. I am a true hourglass shape, with a bit of a tummy. This dress is definitely meant for flatter tummies. The 16 fit well, but was a bit too small. The 18W was too large, but fit my hips well. The back of the dress looks amazing, but the front leaves a lot to be desired. I was also not a fan of the color, seemed very 80s to me.

I liked this dress
I felt like the 6 was fine when I tried it on, and my back-up 4 was too small. But after wearing the dress for 7 hours, I wished I had ordered an 8. It was comfortable and very stretchy fabric, but I think it would have hung better and I would have looked better in the larger size. When I ordered, I was worried the cap sleeves might fall off my shoulders, because I have small shoulders ( I can wear an XS/2 top) and because no back on the dress, but that was not the case. The upper portion of the dress hugged my body nicely. I used a NuBra, and also never felt that it was going to "shift" at all, even with serious dancing! Be aware though, if you order a bra or undergarment or even the shoe pads, that they may not ship with your dress. I didn't see any notice of that when I purchased, and wasn't aware that they didn't arrive with my dress until the next day, and had to run around last minute to buy these items. RTR did however refund that portion of my order, when they said it wasn't going to arrive until after my event. This was my first RTR experience and I will likely use them again. Overall I was pleased.

It fit true to size and is more beautiful in person than it is in the pictures. The sequins rubbed my underarms a little but thankfully it was tolerable. I loved this dress so much and I got so many compliments I wish I could have kept it forever! I would definitely recommend!

Cute and flirty little number. Lots of fun for Great Gatsby themed wedding.
The dress was clean and gorgeous as expected. I wore it to a Great Gatsby themed wedding and it was very comfortable. The cap sleeve was a little restrictive but that's probably because I like to dance all crazy. The sequins did not scratch as much as I thought it would. The only problem I had was the I couldn't find underwear that would be invisible. Everything I tried came up too high (you can see it in the pic) but it's wasn't a big deal. That's a heads up so you can prepare when you decide to rent it.

Rented the dress for a Gatsby themed wedding. Paired the dress with pearls and it was perfect.
Dress is beautiful. Got a lot of compliments on the color. Fits true to size. It's great that you can wear a regular bra with this dress. The only con I can think of was by the end of the night by underarms were a little scratchy because of the sequins but it's to be expected.

Gorgeous Glamour
This dress is absolutely gorgeous. The color is just beautiful and the shape is divine! I wore "petals" instead of a bra for the first time and it went perfectly! I was pleasantly surprised to find that the dress was still incredibly flattering in the front despite lack of support (from going without a bra) and a high neck. And of course the back of the dress steals the show! I could not have been more thrilled with this "wild card" dress!

Got so many compliments!
Great dress for a very cosmopolitan wedding that required a short, formal cocktail dress. It worked well for my height of 5'2". I was able wear a regular strapless bra with it and I just pulled down the band just a little. I got lots of compliments and it was a very easy to wear dress.

Perfect first time rental experience
I was really nervous about renting a dress, but decided to give it a try. I wanted to have something special, as my husband was in the bridal party and would be wearing a tuxedo. I definitely got what I wished for! As far as fit goes, I tend to wear a 6 or an 8, so those are the 2 sizes I selected. Both fit me fine, but I chose to wear the 8 to have it be a little least clingy and allow for more movement in my arms and legs. It is a very body conscious style, so be ready for that. Also, get a NuBra! I loved this dress. I was sad to return it. The back is to die for and the color is gorgeous.

A dream dress!
This dress really is a dream come true. I rented the full length version before for a black-tie gala and was thrilled to see that there was a shorter version as well. The dress is lined so the sequins are not poking you. The back of the dress is to die for and as if the gorgeous color and sparkle did not already make a statement, when you turn around the draping certainly will! The overall fit is super flattering, very comfortable and runs true to size. Though I may have been able to squeeze into a 4, I'm happy I went with the 6 that fit perfectly, was not loose at all, yet even after dinner I did not have to worry about a noticeable bulge. I was so in love with the dress that I ended up purchasing it.

"You must have come with the venue because you look like an old Hollywood starlet!" -random guest
This was my first Rent The Runway experience and it was everything I had hoped it would be! I felt like sheer perfection in this dress! Sexy, class, and comfortable. I wore a pair for regular old short spanx, but not because the dress required it, I was just feeling a little bloated from the rehearsal dinner drinks the night before and was also worried about being cold. I did however have to wear a low backed bra. I wore a black one, which was good because you could kind of still see the bra just a bit around the edges of the cowl neck, but anyone I asked about it said they didn't notice and/or just thought it was like lining of dress. Turned out the Maid of Honor was wearing the floor length version of the dress in gold and has small enough boobs that she went braless (and thankfully no one except us really noticed we were basically wearing the same dress). I have tried to wear sequins in the past and always found that scratch and sometimes even leave tiny cuts on the undersides of my arms. This was not the case at all! I was able sit very comfortably in a car, shuttle (from the hotel to the wedding), during the ceremony, and throughout dinner. I had absolutely no problems dancing quite enthusiastically with my boyfriend and all our college friends. I would totally rent this dress again! 9.5/10 (-.5 because trying get my bra not to show was kind of a pain)

WOW! What an unbelievable dress! Didn't want to return it!
LOVED this dress! So comfortable! I am 5'4" and 123lbs and usually wear a size 4 but chose to wear a size 2 in this dress. I wanted it to fit more snug. The 2 was perfect!!! I am small chested and the size 4 was just a tad too big on top. I wore this dress to the after party for Samantha Bee's NOT The White House Correspondents' Dinner . Couldn't have picked a more perfect dress. I've never used Rent the Runway before but will for sure use it again. Why buy a dress you will only wear once when you can rent something new and fabulous!

Beautiful sparkly and comfy!
I wore this dress to a wedding at a vineyard where it was cocktail attire. I'm usually an 8, but I also got the 10 just in case. I wore the 8 and it fit perfectly. It was plenty loose around the hips (my concern) and didn't ride up at all. The top is a bit big and drapey, but it has silicon strips at the shoulder to help it grip. I wore it without an bra since the back dips so low. Bigger chested women may need to find an alternative bra. I got plenty of compliments, and extolled the virtues of RTR to my table mate at dinner!

Who doesn't love sparkles?!
It was great! Loved the dropped back and the color. Could be considered blue or lavender! Like almost all my other rentals, I felt like a million bucks! Only tough part for me was shoes/hose choices. I went with black (which was my more comfortable choice and looked fine), but I think nude/beige would have been better.
