I felt amazing!

The event was in March but the temperature was still cold in PA. So I opted to wear the long-sleeved full-length gown. It fit me perfectly and the ruching at the hips hid my tummy. SCORE!

The response from people!

It fit perfectly and was very comfortable. The slit was quite eye so beware. Also be sure you have the draping piece in the front. Mine was shifted to the back so when I out it on it looked strange until I figured that part out.

Stunning!!

I wore this to a wedding and I looked fabulous and felt so comfortable. It was so sexy, but nothing was exposed. The material is stretchy so dancing all night was a breeze. Love this dress!! I rented the necklace too and it was a show stopper.

Love this dress

The dress was tangled up on the hanger when I got it and I was a bit confused how it went on a fit. But once I figured it out - the dress was beautiful and perfect for a fall wedding

Loved the dress! So many compliments. The sleeves were a bit big though so I pushed them up. I'm a 4 but ended wearing the 2. I wanted it to be snug against my skin.

Very classic/stylish black gown

This was my backup gown, so I did not end up wearing it to my event. But it did fit very well and was quite flattering. I would rent this dress again, especially in the fall/winter as it has long sleeves and I get cold easily. The length of the petite was perfect for me (4'11")

Don’t order this dress if you have a short waist.

This dress is so pretty on the model, but it looked awful on me. The ruffles on the body sat on me in a really weird place, and I felt like a fat potato being laid to rest.

Perfect maternity formal gown!

I rented this for a black tie event. I am 7 1/2 months pregnant and didn't want to buy a formal dress I would never wear again! I ordered a size 12R and 14R. The 12R fit perfectly. The sleeves were a little big but the overall fit was good. I also liked that the dress wasn't too long so I could wear flats. The material is very comfy too. Overall, perfect choice. Highly recommend!

Black tie formal wedding

This dress was the perfect amount of glamour and class. I rented both the 4 long and the 6 regular. The 6 was a little loose, and the regular length barely touched the floor when I was barefoot. I went with the 4, which was better fitted and the long length was actually too long with 4 inch heels! I kept having to hold the dress up as I walked or danced. The draping fabric was not as flattering as I thought-they hit mostly at the hips and as a pear shaped person this probably wasn't the best choice. However, the fabric did not wrinkle and was actually quite comfortable - no itchiness or stiffness. Loved the long slit!

Loved this dress. I wore this for a NYE wedding in Montana as the Mother of the Bride.

The 12T was too short! Both in length and in the sleeves. The 14R was perfect in length and sleeve length. Wore 1" heels. I am 5'9". Very flattering dress.

Flattering, warm and easy

I'm very short, 4'11", and the petite was perfect with a small heel. This dress falls nicely, accentuates curves, and can be dressed up or down depending on the jewelry you wear with it. It is a thicker material, so I'd suggest it for a fall or winter event or you may get warm. It's flattering without being a showstopper.

Gorgeous, easy to wear, flattering dress

This dress is perfect if you have some curves. I usually wear a 12, but am glad I got a size up because I wanted the dress to cling less. The leg slit is noticeable, but still very classy. The only trouble I had was that one sleeve was slightly shorter than the other. No one noticed though and I'm sure it was just my particular dress. The dress did not wrinkle when I sat down and was not see through at all when I emceed from the stage. I helped run the event so I was on the move a lot and this dress allowed for that. The fabric is thin, but as long as you wear spanx or other form wear, you should be fine. Overall, I would rent this dress again! I received many positive compliments on the dress. I wore it with champagne colored, glitter peep toe pumps and faux-emerald and gold dangly earrings.

Fit perfectly except the length

The dress fit perfectly other than the length. I am 5'1 and I usually have to get Petite sizing in gowns. However this dress was too short! After wearing 3 inch heels, the dress was no longer long length and hit my ankles. Next time, I'll order the non petite sizing.

I chose this dress for a Gala.

The overall fit was perfect, but the length was about 2 inches too short. I'm 5'7 and do not have abnormally long legs, but the length came about and inch above my ankle bone, looking strange. Thus, I did not wear the dress.

Felt amazing in this dress

Ordered the red but it was "regular" and didn't hang in the right places so it wasn't flattering at all. Called and got a petite in the black and it fit a glove.

This was for a photo shoot

I rented this gown for a photo shoot but couldn't use it. I am 5'7" and the gown(R) literally went to a little above mid-shin...too short! I am usually a 12 in Badgley Mischka but this one was small; the 14 just fit, In the photo the gown looks sleek and smooth, but the panel (on a diagonal from waist to hip) gave a movement that was not flattering for me and not so elegant. The fabric is also thicker than I expected.

Gorgeous, But Needs Accessories

First of all, this dress was comfortable and pleasantly heavyweight in the fabric, and I love the sleeves. It fit beautifully, though the cut felt a bit "older" to me - however, with the addition of a bold gold belt and a dark lip it upgraded to be more modern and interesting. A good get!

I wore this dress to a military ball.

The dress fit well, true to size. It was very pretty and great for any occasion, however, I was a bit disappointed in the condition. The slit was coming apart just above where it was supposed to end, making it look "cheap" and worn. Also the bottom just looked stretched out and over-washed. Overall, these things were probably only noticeable to me, but disappointing nonetheless.

Perfect for a black tie New Year's wedding

This dress fit like a dream and was extremely flattering. The weight was wonderfully heavy; it felt very high quality and swooshed a little when I walked. It was fancy but beautifully understated. I got compliments all night long.

Comfortable and flattering!

I wore this dress to a grade school fundraising gala. It was so comfortable! I am 5'7" and wore 4 in heels and the length was fine. I wore the 8R. I had a 6 month old baby so I liked the ruching because it helped hide my baby pooch. I would rent this again.

Great dress, flattering fabric.

This dress has a very flattering drape and it's easy to wear. My husband said it looked spectacular and I felt very comfortable and sexy, but in a sophisticated, classy way. I have a very large chest and the stretchy material of this dress was perfectly accommodating.

Dress is beautiful, very classy

I needed a dress for the opera. This was sent to me as a replacement because the one I rented was too small however they only had a 2P and so it was a little short all around. Very classy, zipper however was a pain in the neck, couldn't get it all the way down.

Not the dress for me.

This dress just didn't quite fit. In my opinion, it ran small and was too snug im the middle. With the way the dress looked, I thought the rouching and wrapping would be a good fit and distraction to cover my post-partum baby belly, but it definitely didn't work oit for me. It was also a but short in the length and sleeves. Had I tried a size 4, maybe it would have been a dress I liked!

Stunning, flattering gown

I loved this dress. Very comfortable and elegant. Fabric is heavy enough where it feels like it is good quality, but not so weighty that you get overheated. I usually wear a 4P but the 4P was a bit short with my 3" heels, so I went with the 6R. Fit was still great, and length was fine even with my 5"2 frame. Would absoutely rent this dress again.

Pefect for a winter wedding!

I wore this dress for a wedding in Minnesota. The long sleeves kept me warm. The material and style was very flattering. I ordered a size 6R and 8R. The sleeves on the 8R were too baggy so I went with size 6R. It fit really well but I did have to wear spanx bc of my hips/booty. I absolutely loved the dress and would recommend for a winter wedding/formal occasion.

Awesome Dress

I wore this dress to a Mardi Gras Fundraiser for my daughters school. It came on time and the fit was great. I really needed the long but it wasnt available for the dates I needed but it was fine. It was a cold night and the event was in an old warehouse that only had space heaters and it was plenty warm. Also hides the tummy area well.
