Most amazing dress I ever wore!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I don't even know where to begin. I actually ordered this dress after my first choice didn't work out (Carlos Miele ocean chiffon gown). My sister picked it out but I wasn't convinced that it was as pretty or a standout for my brother's wedding. Boy was I wrong! As soon as I put it on I knew this was the one (I know, sounds like I was shopping for a wedding dress). It looks even better in person. The chiffon material was flowy, and so comfortable. I danced for hours. I don't think I've danced like that since 1998. It was a little long so I had to hold it while I danced at times, but it was the exact look I was going for. I'm between 5'5 and 5'6. I like my long dresses to cover my feet and at least graze the ground. And I only had 2-inch heels on, because I wanted to be comfortable. So higher heels should do the trick if you don't want to drag it. Overall, I do think Badgley Mischka dresses run a little longer than most. This dress hugged me in all the right places from waist up, and then the rest just flowed. The fit is amazing and the color is beautiful. If you want to stand out in a sea of sameness, this is definitely the dress to wear! This dress made me extremely happy I wasn't a bridesmaid! So I could pick my own gown. Got so many compliments, but even if I didn't if wouldn't have mattered. I was in love! This dress made me feel beautiful, comfortable, fun, glam...all at once! I can't say enough. Like any strapless dress, you may have to pull it up once in a while, no big deal. I'm usually a size 6 but wore a 4; I lost a few pounds prior to this event. Though with this dress, I'd recommend renting a size down as backup anyway. It was so hard to part with it. I'd definitely rent it again...and again. Perfect fit, comfort and glam, you can't find that just anywhere! I was freaking out when my first dress didn't work out and it was the day before the wedding. But the RTR rep made this first experience an amazing one. Thank you RTR!
