The sequins were a little itchy, but nothing I couldn't stand. Lovely dress.

Excellent bachelorette dress
This Badgley Mischka was a knock out. The fit around my ribs and bust was a little weird, but I just skipped a bra to get it to fit. The tiny sequins sparkle like liquid gold. I felt like an Oscar and turned so many heads. Great bachelorette dress.

Stunning but runs extremely small
This dress is absolutely stunning. It's like liquid gold. BUT it runs extremely small. I'm usually a size 10 but had to get size 14 overnighted. I've never worn a size 14 in my life! But once it fits, it fits gorgeously and is very flattering.

Tons of compliments, even tho it didn't fit that great-so sparkly, you will be noticed!
The top has this material that hangs between the bust and if you're short waisted (like me) it makes you look like you have a 3rd boob in the middle. Had to keep hiking it up. Also the zipper is really stubborn, had to have help w/that. It could have been shorter, and I think I'm just too large on top (and not perky enough ) to wear strapless w/out strong boning in the top. It is a gorgeous dress and I still got tons of compliments, even people stopping me on the street to ask who i was and what I was doing, so I can't complain, it just didn't fit great, but I made it work.

perfect for gatsby-themed birthday party!
i LOVED this dress!! i wore it for my "roaring 25th" birthday party and it was absolutely perfect. the tiny sequins give it an unbelievable sparkle. it was comfortable and i never once felt like it was going to fall down, which i always appreciate in a strapless dress. the only drawbacks were that the zipper was difficult to pull up, and the dress ran very large - i usually wear an 8, but that one literally fell off of me, so i had to get smaller sizes overnighted to me. overall, though, this dress was fabulous and i would definitely wear it again!

I wore this dress for a bachelorette party. This dress is MORE beautiful in person, a head turner!
The zipper is VERY DIFFICULT to zip! You will definitely need someone to help you zip it up for sure!!! If your small chested you will probably want to go down a size to hold the strapless dress up. I wore a size 2 and it fit perfectly. This is a great gold dress and you will shine in all of your pictures!

Impossible zipper
It's a pretty dress (I don't think it runs small like many people said) but the zipper is horrendous. We tried both sizes for 20 minutes and could barely get it zipped up even when it wasn't on me. Finally we attached a coat hanger to the zipper hook and yanked it up and it finally zipped. Ridiculous for such an expensive gown.

Perfect NYE dress !
I was a bridesmaid in my friends New Years Eve wedding. The only requirement was to wear gold, and this dress was perfect. It's festive, fun, yet comfortable. The zipper on the size 6 was a little tricky, so make sure you have a helping hand when zipping up.

Perfect New Years Eve dress!!
As mentioned in other reviews, the zipper was a nightmare. But once on, the dress is gorgeous :) has a great night and it was comfortable to drink and dance in all night long.

Felt beautiful
This dress is fun and flashy and I received a lot of compliments. The wedding theme was great gatsby-esque with the colors being champagne and black. I am usually smaller up top, but the 10 was snug with a very padded strapless bra and was not the most comfortable, however I believe that's part of wearing this kind of dress. Also, this dress had a difficult time zipping off and on me as the zipper didn't zip smoothly, but we ended up making it work.

new years eve
heavy and wants to pull down so you definitely want to make sure its tight on the chest and waist so I would not size up. Hits right on the knee or only slightly above if you have short-normal legs

I wore this as part of the wedding party and it looked beautiful and sparkled in every picture!!
I'm usually between a 2 and a 4. However, I had read that it ran small so I ordered a 4 and 6. The 4 was literally falling off of me so I ended up getting a 2 overnighted to me. It fit perfectly!!

Made me look like an oscar!!!
I wear a size 6 and a 34C bust. Due to the bodice, one could wear the dress without a bra, if you had a bigger bust. There is a lot of space in the bust area. I ended up wearing one of those stick on bras and it worked well. As for the dress it self, It is rather tight at the waist and it did zip up, but barely. I did not eat much that night. It is not good for someone who may have a lower belly "pooch" and a smaller bust. This dress is great for someone who has a thin waist, big bust AKA curvy. The size 8 zipped up fine, but the bust area would look too empty, and since this is a strapless dress I don't think it would have zipped up.

It was very hard to zip. I thought it was too tight, but it was just the sequins getting in the way of the zipper. I would order a size up.

I wore this for New Years Eve and got a lot of compliments on it! Beautiful dress.
I loved this dress - it was comfortable and very eye-catching. It truly sparkles! The size 2 fit me perfectly in the chest, but my only complaint was that it was much longer than I was expecting. It went down a good two inches past my knees. I fixed this by using temporary hem tape to shorten it (the length you see in my photo is at least four inches shorter than the dress as it was originally). Altogether, just what I was looking for on New Years Eve.

LOVED the color & the fit!
I rented this for my 25th birthday. I got the 8 and 10 because I usually wear a 8 in dress but was unsure because of the bust. The 10 was a little more comfortable on the top but I probably should have worn the 8 as the 10 got loose as the night went on. It was gorgeous and the perfect amount of shine. I have a large bust (34DD) so I am always hesitant with strapless but I felt covered and classic. The flare of the skirt hides little imperfections well. The top of it did get a little loose as the night went out so I had to keep pulling it up. Next time, I would use fashion tape and maybe a pin to my bra (I wore a strapless under this to give a little support because there isn't much support in this dress).

Beautiful dress - so sparkly I got tons of compliments!
I had worn this dress before in full length and couldn't miss the chance to wear it again in knee length. The photos do not do it justice, this thing glitters! I have a full bust and the strapless fits snug and supportive, the boning was slightly uncomfortable at the end of the night, but no worse than any other formal outfit. In both full and knee length I got TONS of compliments on this dress. I definitely recommend!

Wonderfully structured top and tons of shimmer!
Loved this dress; the classy top & hemline balanced out all the sequins. My usual size 8 was just a bit too snug so I opted for the 10, which fit wonderfully. The top is structured and I never felt like it was going to fall down. I chose to wore a bra even though there was really no need to; the top is thick enough that you don't even need pasties. Wore this on my birthday to a formal holiday party.

Perfect for a holiday party!
This dress was beautiful and perfect for my boyfriend's work holiday party. It runs a little small - I normally wear a 2, but had to rent a 4 (luckily I got both sizes). The zipper is really hard to zip sometimes, it tends to get stuck on the track. It's also a little longer than I thought, but that made it fancier, so it worked! Overall a great dress for the price, I got a lot of compliments!

My Thirtieth Birthday Party!!!
The dress was gorgeous... but it was SO LONG!!!! It came all the way down to my knee. I am only 5'4", so this may be why it seemed so long. I also had to get a size 12 because I am a 38DDD. The fit was right but it was just a lot longer than expected. I got complimented all night, though, and it looked great in pictures.

A bit big, though I think a bit big for me. Great dress, very happy I purchased it. It would be better for someone better endowed (or with a very generously padded bra).

This dress was very pretty and photographs well!
I normally wear a 0 and I have a very small waist - the 0 was very tight in the waist and bust and I opted to wear the 2 so I could still wear a bra and be more comfortable.

I loved this dress. I felt like Disco Barbie in it!
I wore this dress for my Bachlorette party. It was pretty heavy but stayed in place perfectly. I didn't have to wear a bra at all because of the structure of the top and the way the waist fit me perfectly. It was a blast to dance in and I got lots of compliments. This is an excellent party dress.

Loved the dress. It fit weird though. I am a little busty and it just didn't fit well. So bright and pretty though. I had a change of dress outfit so I did that halfway through my event.

SO SPARKLY
This dress is all sequin, so really heavy, and not itchy surprisingly. It is supported by the bust so size accordingly, ie one down unless you want to do the strapless dress dance. It's longer but moves, and I can't wait to wear this to NYE!

Very tight
Depending on the material I can float between a 12 and a 14- they didn't have a 14 so I got the 12 and my boyfriend had to zip me into it, and it was a struggle. The material is pretty heavy but it's a cute dress!

The dress is beautiful!! Exactly what I was looking for!! Absolutely stunning!
Pros: The dress is beautiful, I really cant say enough about the way it looked. The whole night i was getting compliment after compliment. It really is a head turner. It also isn't as itchy as I initially thought it would be. Although it is covered in sequins, the dress is lined very well. There was only slight rubbing in the underarm area. It was true to color and looked Exactly like the online photos. Cons: I loved this dress, it was exactly what i was looking for but I'm always a little hesitant in ordering offline. I read lots of reviews of this dress before deciding to rent it. Most reviews were for the sizes that I had rented. Normally I very between an 8- 12 in dress sizes. It always depends on the style of the dress for me. I rented a 10 and got the 12 as my back up, and i am happy I did. Although the dress I'm sure is true to size for most people it still ran a little small for me in some areas. I have an hour glass figure. The 12 fit great in the hips and waist, It also fit around my bust. My issue was my rib cage, which is larger. I have a broad back. The boning was very uncomfortable on my rib cage. It was also very snug. The zipper is a skinny zipper, that seemed to get caught in the lining as you tried to zip it up. It looked like this has happened to many. I wish it was a little looser in the rib area. It was difficult to sit because the boning was going into my hip i have a shorter torso so the dress was a little out of proportion for my body type. Also for shorter people, the dress hits a lot longer on the leg that i had originally anticipated. It was right at my knees. So if you're looking for a little shorter than this dress might not be for you. All in all the dress was what I needed. I celebrated my Golden birthday!! It was flashy yet classy. I would recommend getting two sizes bigger if you have a larger rib cage, but other than that I highly recommend this dress.

Fun, Photogenic, and Snug to Party the Night Away In!
Rented this dress along with 2 best friends for one of their golden birthdays. It looked great on all 3 of us and fit perfectly. We all went braless as the top is snug enough to hold everything in. Short and swingy bottom was fun for dancing and the sequins were great for pictures. Short in length but fun for a party!

My Girls!
Very sparkly, which I loved, and the length was just above the knee. I loved that I didn't have to worry about my butt falling out. However, the bust of the dress was HUGE. Way too big, and I am not small chested. I also ordered a size 8, which was way too small, I couldn't even zip it. :(

Showstopper dress! Could've been better.
This dress was definitely a showstopper! I wore this to an awards ceremony for our community theatre. I was up for the Leading Actress in a musical award so I definitely wanted an unforgettable dress. I got a lot of compliments on it. The dress fit well aside from having to pull it up quite a few times throughout the evening. The reviews are correct when it comes to the infamous zipper. That was rough! I had to zip it past the seam and then carefully put it on over my head. Another noteworthy detail was the boning in the bodice. The right side boning in the bodice kept riding up out place. It was rather annoying. Those few details are the reason I gave this dress a 3 out of 5 stars.
