Made me feel unforgettably gorgeous!
I had to go two sizes up than usual. I'm a size 8, had to wear a 12, but the people at RTR were more than accommodating in sending me the right fit in less than a day after I called! The dress is absolutely stunning and hugs every curve beautifully. It's hard for me to find beautiful and flattering dresses a lot of the time and this one really ticked all of the boxes. Would rent again!

This dress had all the right gathering in all the right places!
This dress was fabulous! I loved the gathering because it was so flattering around the midsection. Very true to size, has some give to the material. My normal size is a 2, and the 2L fit perfectly and was so confortable.

Perfect dress for a 1940s ball
I ordered this dress for a military formal ball. It was 1940s themed and I wanted a bombshell look. This dress was absolutely perfect! I am 5'0" and wore 4-inch heels and the dress just barely skimmed the ground, no dragging at all. The fitting through the bodice gave me enough support to go bra-less, but not so that it was uncomfortable to sit. The color was stunning and I got a lot of compliments on it.

Fit like a glove
I rented this dress for a military ball. This dress was perfect. It was so comfy and easy to move around in. I was a little nervous to get a strapless dress. We all know the pain of having to constantly pull your dress up. But honestly I never had to once. It stayed up!! I was honestly so impressed by how nicely it was delivered and how simple it was to return. Only thing I would of changed would be to get a 6L and not the regular. I couldn't wear heels with it, but that wasn't a huge deal. Overall I am very happy with how everything turned out. Will definitely consider using again!

Really glad I went with something other than basic black. The bright red really popped!
For me (5'1") I definitely would've been better off with a 2P, but the first dress didn't fit & this is what was available. This is with short-medium-ish heels (about 2" I think), and it's still long. I wasn't as satisfied with the way the mermaid cut looked in person, but on the photos you could see it more easily (it didn't feel very mermaid-y in person). Overall really satisfied with the experience and was glad with the design I chose.

Everyone was complimenting me and I've always wanted to wear a dress this style!
This dress fit like a glove. I didn't have to pull it up once, and strapless dresses NEVER work for me! I am a bit bigger chested with a wife rib cage, but it was perfect! I didn't even need to wear a bra with it. Fit snug in all the right places and the wrap effect on the front helped hide my imperfections. Perfect dress! Sad to send it back today but excited to rent another soon!!

Beautiful dress
I loved the fit of this dress and it was especially flattering because the cinching toward the middle was forgiving if you have a little belly or a few drinks in you. Compliments all night.

Elegant Simplicity
I would have passed right by this dress if I saw it on the rack, but it turned out perfect for my event. It was so simple and elegant I got comments all night. Im 5'3 so it was very long and needed my highest of heels not to drag on the floor. The 6 fit but I ended up going with the 8 to give me more room in the bust. Def size up if you are chestier like me. Overall, awesome dress!

Awesome red dress!
I wore this dress to a red ribbon gala. Considering it is a mermaid style, it was still comfortable. I wore a strapless bra with it but the material is really thick and a bra might not be necessary for some. I got tons of compliments all night! Felt like a million bucks! The dress feels very nice on and didn't slip down like a lot of strapless dresses do. I felt very secure all night!

Red dress makes a statement!
I received many compliments in this dress. It was one of the few colored dresses in a sea of black, making it really stick out. If I saw the dress on a rack, I would've bypassed it. It looks plain, but is very elegant on. I'm a size 4, 5'6", 34b and ~130lbs. The dress fit very well in hips, but a little big in the chest. Not too big where it slipped, but I did find myself pulling it up while dancing (more out of fear that it would stop than actually slipping). The dress was long so it allowed me to wear any heels I wanted and later put on flip flops and no one noticed. A huge win once my feet started to ache yet I wanted to continue to dance.

Didn't work out =(
I had selected this for a formal gala. I have worn several other Badgley Mischka dresses before, so I thought I could work this one, sadly, it was just slightly too tight in the chest/bust and I couldn't get it zipped. So sad! =(

I felt AMAZING!
This was my first experience with RTR and I am beyond pleased! My fiancé was tasked with organizing an Air Force awards ceremony...my first time attending one. I ordered and my dress was supposed to come Wednesday before the Friday event. It came early on Monday and I fell in love! It was perfect and felt so great on. The only complaint is that the inserts in the chest area started poking me a little as the night went on. I received soooo many compliments, my fiancé raved and I felt beautiful. I ordered the petite and it was perfect with my 3 1/2 inch heels. I will absolutely be using RTR for our next event.

Runs very small
This was my back up dress and I was very disappointed to find it runs very small. I'm 5" 4' and 130 pounds and normally wear a size 6. I couldn't get this dress zipped; like, not even close. Order up a size.

Sexy and comfy
Dress seems to run true to size. Love the side sweep of the middle of the dress. Dress has some stretch but zipper on the 0R and the 2R were difficult to pull up around rib cage, however once it was up the fit was comfortable and the dress fit beautifully. I was stopped on the streets several times and told how beautiful I looked. Would highly recommend this dress.

What a Striking color!
I'm quite short - only 5'1" - so I always have to rent the petite options. Unfortunately the 2P wasn't available, but the 4P was, so I order that. The 2P would have been a better fit, however the 4P was fine, and didn't slip down. I still found it a bit long and had to hike it up as I walked, but that's the story of being short. The color was fantastic, and it photographed beautifully.

The dress was a perfect touch for the charity fundraiser for the fighterfighters.
The dress was pretty much true to size. It's a side zipper so those are always a little difficult. I did not have to wear a bra which is always a plus. The dress is very flattering!

This dress was beautiful. I am 6 ft tall and large framed. Typically wear a 12 but in this dress it was snug. The 14L fit perfectly. The fabric was appropriately heavy to provide a lovely drape. I felt spectacular in it and got rave style reviews.

The color of the dress stood out among all other dresses.
The fit and length were perfect. It felt secure as a strapless gown and the rouching on the side added a little flare while outlining the waist and hips beautifully. Matching red lips and a retro hairstyle made it a singular look for the evening.

great color, great fit
I am 5'10, 150 lbs, but a lot of that weight is in my boobs. I am very curvy and thought this would be a great dress to show off the lady lumps. I usually wear a 6-8, and figured I would definitely need the long. The long length was perfect on the dress (long but would be good with heels) but the size 6 dress would not zip up over my boobs. It fit everywhere else except the chest. If you have big boobs, make sure to order up a size as backup! The 8L was perfect. It was a little roomier around the middle but gave me room to eat my bodyweight in food and cake.

Great dress to stand out in a sea of black
I loved this dress, unfortunately there were stains from dry-cleaning and I couldn't wear it. I say it runs small because based on reviews the 10R should have fit me and the 12 was my back up. For anyone who has a larger mid section or wide ribcage size up (I'm 155 lbs 36C). Otherwise the fit should be true to size. Other reviews have said the dress is short and I would say it was fine for me, but if you're over 5'5" you might want to consider the long.

Gorgeous dress a head turner!
Dress ran small in the bust area. It accentuate my curves. I thought it would be to tight to dance in-but it wasn't able to dance all night. I turned heads all night and received so many compliments. I wore silver rhinestone earrings, necklace, bracelet and shoes. The dress was a little long even with 5 inch hills. Enjoyed my first rental with RTR and will definitely rent again! I am 5'3, bust size 36B and 132 lbs.

Jessica Rabbit dress!
This is a glamorous dress that makes you stand out in a sea of black dresses. This was my 4th RTR rental and each one has been perfect. It runs pretty true to size, if slightly on the small side, especially if you are larger busted. The 6L was a little tight on me (but that could be because this event was in early February, and I might have had a little extra holiday weight). The material is fairly heavy, so it drapes very nicely. Makes you feel like a movie star! (Note: I'm actually a 34DD or 36D, but for some reason, I cannot edit my profile, so I can't change that.)

Wow! Just like the title of the dress, this dress made me truly feel like a beauty in a bottle!
Before I decided to rent this dress, I read the reviews and decided to go up a size based on the reviews. I normally wear a size 0, but ordered the 2P and 4P. I wore the 2P and the length was perfect with heels (I'm 5'4"), but for the fit, I should have ordered a 0P. I received many compliments for the dress and this dress felt magical! I would highly recommend this size in your true size.

PERFECTION.
Wore this for a New Years Eve gala. Absolutely perfect dress, perfect fit. I am border size 12/14 - both dresses fit, but 14 was more comfortable and fit like a glove with some spanx. I felt like my wedding day- the red dress was an eye turner, and accentuated my curves in the right places. Considering buying it I loved it so much :)
