It's a beautiful dress, however on my body type it just didn't fit properly. The dress is made with many layers and has a lot of boning to get it's shape, however due to this it added a couple of inches to my already small body, and it did not flatter my body type. I ended up not wearing the dress at all.

Rented Twice-AC & Vegas
This was my back up dress style choice, but it gave my main dress a run for its money! I almost wore this one instead, but the other style was just a bit more beautiful. I will DEFINITELY rent this dress again so I can actually wear it. Although I didn't spend a night wearing it, in trying it on, it fit tight enough up top to hold everything in place, but without smooshing my breasts down the way a lot of strapless dresses do (I wore a strapless bra with it). It was sexy & the detail is beautiful. I definitely WINNER! (that was October) ..... I rented it as my main dress this past weekend (11/19/2011) because I was dying to wear it. The size 8 zipper was broke so I wore the size 6. The 6 fit but was definitely tight (though it didn't look it). After sitting in the dress, the center fabric around my waist bunched up & no matter what I did I couldn't get it to lay right again. I was so frustrated, had to run up to my room & change. I still got a few good hours out of it. I am contemplating renting it again despite the middle area issue...I got so many compliments...guys love this dress.

Very beautiful. Wore it to a rehearsal dinner. The beading on top is very pretty and it actually has sort of a corset inside the top that is very flattering.

This is a very sexy dress! I rented it for a wedding I attended a few weeks ago. The dress was knee length on me but very fitted. It runs small -- I am usually a 4/6 in dresses, but I wore an 8 in this style. One complaint -- the zipper sticks, so it is tough to zip on your own. Other than that, I was pleased with the dress, it looked nice and I got a lot of compliments on it.
LaniNovember 23, 2011
I think I had the size 8 you rented this past weekend because it wouldn't zipper at all!! It arrived with the zipper pulling away from the fabric (probably multiple rentals & the fact that it gets stuck easily with all the layered fabric) so I couldn't wear it. I notified RTR & they are fixing the dress/zipper.

I usually take a 4, so I ordered a 4 and a 6. The 6 ended up fitting. The 4 was just too tight to zip up. Everyone loved the dress - I got so many complements! Pros: could wear without a bra and feel supported still. Hugged every curve and stayed up all night. Cons: the bottom of the dress kept riding up a bit when I walked, so I had to keep pulling it down. Not a major problem though.

This was the first dress I rented and I absolutely loved it. The picture doesn't do this dress justice (and I was a bit hesitant to rent it because of it) because it is a very classy, albeit sexy, dress. It was very flattering and I got a ton of compliments at the wedding I wore it to (the bride's grandmother said it was "stunning"). I love this dress!

Actually, it's not the the dress runs "large", rather that after trying it on a couple of times to compare it to dresses I own, it was very stretched out. The dress also has a ton of give, so it doesn't do anything to conceal any tummy bumps (they'll push the fabric right out!) and a small chest (34A) will completely disappear in it. I gave it two stars because the dress itself is pretty - heavy, but pretty.

So sexy! I would have worn it out, but the size I ordered was too large. I rented a 6, since it was advised on here to go a size up as a precaution. But, a 4 would have been better. I am 5'4", 118lbs, and an hourglass shape. This was my backup dress, so I wore the main dress instead, since that one fit better. I would rent this again, but in a smaller size.

I liked it but I had it on wrong half of the night. There are lots of layers and I guess I didn't pull one all the way down so I felt a little "lumpy" when I first put it on.... It photographed better than it actually looked but I got a lot of compliments. I ended up wearing the size 2... no way the 0 would fit! It came with a run in the material but it wasn't noticeable. I would wear it again!

This made my tush look amazing. The top was also cut very well and doesn't give that weird armpit bulge that always concerns me in strapless dresses. The dress is incredible and very stretchy so you can eat and dance in it.

LOVE LOVE LOVE. Yes, it fits tight, and that's what it's mean to be. My husband zipped me up the back, and I have never felt better in a dress (and I've worn a lot of dresses). Definitely a show stopper, definitely comfortable, and definitely one to feel great in!

I normally wear a 2, but was very glad I ordered a 4 in this dress because I had to squeeze myself in. However, it was comfortable and I got TONS of compliments. I wore this to a fancy wedding rehearsal dinner. I still LOVE that I chose this dress.

I rented this dress for a formal cocktail celebrating the book signing of Grace Ormonde.It was held at the Park Plaza Hotel in NY. I have never had as many compliments on wearing a dress before! Fits amazing! No need for a bra as the boning holds you in. Made to be a little tight(holds it all in) it was a show stopper. My husband still talks about this dress! It is a little long and ran to the top of my knee but I just tucked under the mesh material and held it with double sided tape to shorten it(the silk lining was shorter than the mesh). I will rent this one again!! People from the magazine STILL talk about it!

I am a size 4 and on the rare occasion a size 2. I rented this dress in a 4, and it was TIGHT! I could barely zip it and the material was stretched across my backside. It was also too short for me. I'm glad I also rented a different Badgley Mischka dress (size 4) for my birthday party that was the perfect dress and the perfect fit!

Beautiful dress! FITS LIKE A GLOVE (so order a size up if you don't like super-form fitting). I received lots of compliments about the dress. My only complaint was that the built-in slip underneath kept sneaking down lower so that it was visible a couple inches past the dress. It was an easy fix (just shimmied it up in the ladies' room) but had to be gone a few times. Very comfortable and nice dress though.

My first time using the site and had a great experience with this dress. I am usually a size 4 (125lbs with a booty and no chest) but I ended up wearing the 2. It was very flattering to my body and very comfortable to wear. The way the dress fits allows you to mess around with the length. It could've been down to my knees but i scrunched it up and you couldn't even tell! Wore it to my sorority formal - definitely recommend.

Absolutely loved this dress. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is I felt the bust was a bit large. I ordered a 2 and a backup 4, but I should have ordered a 2 and a backup 0. I think the 0 would have fit me much better. Otherwise, it's STUNNING!

I absolutely loved this dress!! It fit perfectly. I ordered the size 4 and size 6, figuring if it ran small I'd be safe. The size 4 fit like a glove. It was the perfect length, and the inner support in the bust area made it stay in it's place all night. The inky complaint I had was that the little strings for the hanger are in a weird spot (one over each part of the sweetheart neckline). I used some of the double stick tape sent from RTR to fix that issue. Beautiful dress!!

This is my frist dress that I rented and let me say the experience was wonderful! Its an extremely flattering dress. I am petite so it was below my knees but I thought that made it a little more dressy for the ball I went to. This might sound funny but its so fitted that I didn't even have to wear spanx with it! I received soo many compliments.

This dress was really great and I got a ton of compliments! The bust was a little large for me (I am a 34 B/C) but I did not fall out of it and I do not think anyone noticed--the right bra would have given me all the support I needed. This dress was perfect for the black tie wedding I went to and I would definitely rent again!

Love this dress- and so did everyone else! I am very small chested and although I wore one, I could've gotten away without a bra.The beading on top is gorgeous! i was worried that I was too short and the dress would be long on me, but it hit above the knee. I would love to rent it again.

Wonderful for a wedding!! The corset held by 36C bust in perfect! Fits true to size and fit like a glove. Don't be fooled by the number sizing since it does have some forgiveness(stretch). Hit above knees.

First Love
This dress was the first dress I rented from Rent the Runway. It is my first love. It fits sexy on the body and very well made. I wore it at a gala and I fit in with movie stars that attended. That's what makes this company great. You too can look like a movie star by renting this dress. It is a show stopper.
