One of the best dresses I have ever worn
An absolutely gorgeous dress that hugs your body like a second skin in a flattering and smooth fit. I received nothing but compliments and felt entirely overdressed on the subway, but nothing but appropriate at a very fancy black-tie dinner. The only mild drawback was the ample length (trip hazard), likely as I had selected the "L" size - try the regular next time ? I love Badgley Mischka anyway, but this is one of their best pieces and a dress I would definitely like to own.

that it was my first RTR moment! no complaints though =)
The dress did run a little big, not too much though. But the fabric did cling nicely to my body so it wasn't a big deal. But I am short and I did have high heels on and the dress was still dragging on the ground.

Great First Experience w/RTR!
This was the first dress I rented through RTR in 2010. I immediately fell in this with the color and the beading on the shoulder. This review would have garnered 5/5 stars except for the fact that RTR combined my billing and shipping address for my shipping address. I was supposed to receive the dress the day before my 7 hour drive to my event and UPS was not able to deliver because of this error. I ended up having to leave at 6 in the morning and drive out of the way to the UPS hub to pick it up and drove w/o ever trying it on. I'm usually a 2L but for this the 0L fit better. The dress fit fantastic against me and it felt amazing in it. My only advice though for smaller chested girls would be to wear some padding because it flattens you out a bit. Otherwise it was a great choice and minus a minor snafu a great first experience! I paired this dress with silver drop earrings, a over-sized silver cocktail ring, silver clutch and heels.

It was so flattering. I received tons of compliments.
I usually wear a 6, but at the time I rented it there were no 6's available. So I ordered the 4 and the 8. The 4 fit great.

Ordered a 2R and 4R based on the reviews. Discovered I was a 0L. Beautiful dress but was huge on me. I ended up wearing the black version in a 0L and it was awesome!

Thank god for the back-up size! I'm usually a 0, but wore the 2. I could have gone up to a 4. Definitely European sizes. Otherwise, I loved the dress. It photographs beautifully.

This dress was beautiful and I received many compliments at the black tie event I attended. I thought it ran a little small. The dress is VERY fitted, but flattering. I normally wear a 2 or 4 and those were the sizes I ordered. Should have ordered a 4 and 6 as the size 4 was still a little snug. But still a great dress!

Glamariffic!
I loved this dress and felt very glamorous wearing it. I ended up wearing a size larger than I normally wear because my normal dress size was a bit tight for my liking. The dress itself is not very forgiving - thank goodness for spanks! Also, I ordered the dress in long and it definitely dragged on the floor a bit ... even in 4 inch heels. I received tons of compliments and I'm glad I opted for a vibrant color versus the normal black dress.

Another statement dress...my fiance said when I turned the corner he was speechless and WOW my fiance looks beautiful!!!! Unforgettable dress at an unforgettable wedding. Very fitted dress to let you flaunt your curves! I normally wear a 4 but for comfort I wore the 6. Wear some Spanx so you don't show any panty lines. All the ladies were impressed how seamless the dress looked! So excited that this rental worked out once again another wonderful rental.

Nothing out of the ordinary, just a good overall experience.
I rented this dress for a formal event (black tie optional). I ordered both the 0R and the 2R. Unlike a lot of other reviewers, I thought my normal size (0) was very tight. I'm fairly petite (5'3, 110 lbs) but also very toned / athletic for my size. I could zip up the size 0 but felt it was just too tight in the mid-section and butt area - this is not a dress that is very forgiving, very body conscious. I ended up wearing the 2, even though the top half was a little loose. Like others have mentioned, the color of the dress is darker than the photo makes it look but I love deep, jewel tones. The material was also heavier than I thought it would be but that was a good thing, as my event was in early February. I ended up wearing 4 inch platforms and the dress still dragged in the back but that was because there is a slight train. Received lots of compliments, overall great RTR experience.

Very stylish!
Although this dress runs slightly on the small side, it felt very comfortable all night. I got SO many compliments on it. I wore 5" heels and the length was okay...a little long but nothing major. It does fit very snug around the legs so you walk like a mummy. Again, nothing major. I was able to dance, walk, and be fabulous. This dress solidified being a returning customer.

Great dress, not the fabric I expected!
This dress is a showstopper - I have no curves what so ever and this would have proven otherwise! I ordered the 4L and 6R - the 4L actually was almost too tight, and the long really wasn't that long! I needed to run out and buy shorter shoes. The 6R was extremely short - without any shoes on the dress was an inch or two off the floor. I expected the material to be thicker but it was stretchy - Spanx were a must! The Crystal Bangle Set was included as my mystery bling, it finished off the outfit nicely and I wore very small earrings as to not compete with the embellishment on the dress.

Overall really good experience!!
I rented this dress for a formal even my husband and I went to, and loved it!! It did fit a little tighter, so I would suggest renting the next size up (I rented an 8 and a 10, and ended up wearing the 10). I loved the dress, the price, and generally everything about the experience. I recommend RTR to anyone needing a special dress for a special occasion. I mean, what girl in her right mind wouldn't want to walk around in a runway dress, that they got for a GREAT deal!!

Gorgeous dress
It was between this dress and a black dress. I opted to go with the black dress b/c it was a bit more forgiving. This dress runs small. It is very tight at the hips. It is a gorgeous color and I loved it, but the black one was just more comfortable.

I was called the Michelle Obama of the evening!!
It fits like a glove! I'm 5'4 and wore 3inch heels the slight train just brushed the floor (careful climbing and descending stairs) the gown was also easy to dance in. I also carried the Whiting Davis Gold Mesh Clutch which complimented my sparkling gold shoes, bracelets and earrings. Thanks enhancing my beauty and for making the evening so memorable I will definitely be using RTR again!

Beautiful shape / bead work, very fitted, but the regular length was too short.
I rented 6 dresses total to choose from for a big formal event. This would have been my top pick had it not been for the regular size running too short. I am 5'1'', but this was too short with 3 inch heels, plus it was on the tight side (all other size 0 normally fit perfectly on me). If it was longer, I would have chosen this. Having said that, the shape, bead work was beautiful.

I got so many compliments on this STUNNING dress!
I am on the shorter size (5'3") and the 0R was a bit too short for me to wear with any of the heels I had. I would have gotten the OL, but it was not available. Because it was just a tad too short, I found myself tugging on it to make it longer. The rest of the dress was perfect though! I loved it and so did my boyfriend!

This is a gorgeous dress but very snug. I wish I would have had the size 4. I am normally a 0-2 in dresses but this one ran pretty tight. I could have worn the size 2 but would have been a bit self conscience!

Beautiful dress!
I was glad I got the 10L. I am 5'8" it was just barely long enough with 2" heels. I usually wear 3-4" heels so I was surprised when most of the comments said it ran long. The top was a little too big and I am a C cup. The tape they provided was very helpful along with a strapless bra and spanx for the under garments. Excellent dress for the hourglass figure! Highly recommend it!

The color really stood out amongst a sea of black dresses.
This dress was uber elegant! I'm straight and narrow but this dress made me look like a actually had curves! :) I got compliments all night! This dress ran a little small and I did feel like I had to hold my stomach in. The fabric is thick and the color is gorgeous.

This dress is gorgeous! I rented this dress for my prom last week and I felt so beautiful and confident. The only thing I would be weary of is that the dress is very smug, especially around the stomach and hips area. I would suggest ordering a size larger. I normally wear a size 0 but I would have been more comfortable in a 2. Allow a size larger for some comfort room.

Loved the color and style!
This dress was beautiful for my sorority formal! I got lots of compliments throughout the night. I was worried about the bust and length of the dress. It was a little snug in the waist area and I ended up wearing spanx. The length was also a little short when I was wearing 2" heels. I was in between the regular and long styles though, so it was probably better that it was a little short rather than too long. The experience with RTR was great and I will be renting again!

I felt like a grecian goddess!
I had a 'black tie optional' wedding to go to. My SO was in the wedding, so I wanted a longer dress to go with him being in a tux. Fit was wonderful. Hugged my curves in all the right places. I got compliments all night for it. I'm petite and wore not very high heels with it, and it skimmed the floor, but as the night went on (with dancing), I felt like I had to pick up the dress more.

This dress was incredible. It was very light and airy, perfect for a Southern California wedding. Best piece of advice is to have your measurements and go by that, not dress size. I'm normally a 10, but that would have been too tight. I'm very glad I ended up with the 12.

This dress was outstanding. It fit like a glove and looked amazing. I weighed 117 the day I wore the dress and the zero was perfect. I wore a 3 1/4 quarter heel which worked very well for the length of the dress. The material is strong but forgiving enough to dance with ease. I would strongly recommend this gown.

I rented this dress for a scholarship & awards gala at The Plaza hotel in October 2010. I received compliments all night! The size 8 fit perfectly, the color is super flattering, and b/c of the material, the dress is beyond comfortable. I wholeheartedly loved this dress. (And, it doesn't hurt that I saw a well-respected, film actress in the same dress a few weeks later for a film premiere. ; )) Thx RTR!

It was a great dress to look different than everyone else but not stand out too much with something
Wore this dress to a black tie event and received many compliments. I normally wear a size 10 and was a little scared that it would be small, but it fit perfect and I actually had a little room around the chest. Wore it with simple earrings, and a cuff from here which worked out great.

This dress is stunning! I wore it to a black tie function and received so many compliments. I stood out in a room full of black dresses. Length was perfect in front with a 3-4 inch heel. I ended up wearing the size 0 because I wanted it to be more snug--but the size 2 would have worked as well. Very comfortable material.

This was going to be my primary dress but the weather prohibited the size I needed from getting in on time. Customer service quickly called and informed me of the problem and helped me pick another dress just in case. This dress did come in with my (just in case dress) however it was a little too loose up top. I needed the 2R and I recieved the 4R which was the back up size. I tried the 4R on and it was very beautiful and flattering. I would suggest not wearing earrings that are too gaudy because the beaded side is almost jewelry by itself. I would like to wear this dress again (but in the right size and maybe outside of my apartment). But overall the renting experience was fantastic!
