Great dress, lots of compliments
So, like other reviews state, the armholes are a bit snug. I ordered the 12 and the 14 and went with the 14 because of the armholes. You can wear a regular bra which is nice but I do recommend wearing some sort of shapewear underneath. The dress is form fitting. I found the green panel to be more glittery in person than in the pictures but I didn't mind. I paired it with black and gold pumps, a necklace from RTR and a vintage bracelet. Overall I loved my outfit and would recommend this dress and RTR.

Convenient!
I wore this for my annual work #holidayparty my boyfriend really liked the dress and I received a lot of compliments. The dress is baggy, I wore the smaller of the two sizes. Other reviews are correct, it's more fitted at the hips and loose at the waist and chest. Overall I am happy with the service and will use it again!

Great dress! Flattering silhouette
This dress was very flattering and the color created a great silhouette. As others mentioned the armholes are a bit snug but did not prevent me from wearing. Wore to work Christmas party. The perfect amount of festive without being over-the-top. Wore with Nicole Miller star light star bright necklace and Whiting & Davis Hollywood Boulevard clutch.

Great dress, but waist hit too high
The dress was beautiful and a perfect style for a company Christmas party. Unfortunately, it was too short in the torso for me and didn't fit properly. I'm 6'1" and the seeming for the bust, waist & hips all hit about 1" to 2" too high, which made the dress balloon in weird places. You can see this a little bit in the pic in the bust area. This is a reoccurring problem for me with dresses, but I had thought this dress looked stretchy enough to overcome these issues. I ended up wearing it anyway, as my backup dress fit worse and I didn't have anything better. I still felt pretty, though self conscious and I kept having to pull it down all evening. For anyone who normally has fit issues because of a longer torso, I would not recommend this dress. For all others, I definitely would recommend it. Hopefully designers will start making dresses for us taller/longer torso ladies soon!! Also, it would be great if RTR would add a feature to allow me to search/filter dresses based on those that fit ladies with longer torsos.

I wore this dress to my sister-in-law's wedding, and received lots of compliments :)
This dress fit very closely to my body, but had enough stretch that it was still very comfortable. Dress did end up coming to the bottom of knees, but otherwise very happy with it.

The dress was amazing and the experience was so easy!
This dress fit PERFECTLY! I guess I shouldn't be surprised since it's such a nice dress, but I was still impressed. It went to just above my knee. I got so many compliments on it and it looked so classy! I can't wait for my next big event so I can use RTR again!

Flawless!
Very flattering fit, nicely contoured. Conservative without being matronly. The hemline is an unusual length (bottom of the knee on my 5'6" frame). I loved the length, but proceed with caution if you are short.

The dress was lovely, but I didn't like the length. I'm 5'1 and the dress hit below the knee at an awkward spot.

The cut of the dress accentuates the good things while drawing the eye away from areas you may want to hide. Comfortable fabric and easy to accessorize.

Beautiful dress.
I'm usually a 0 or 2. Both fit but the 2 was a better fit. Really didn't want to give this dress back. It's beautiful and something that you could get some great use of. It's much prettier in person. The pix don't do it justice. Received so many compliments throughout the night.

This dress fit true to size. It is very fitted and I wore Spanx underneath to help with that. Comfortable dress, conservative longer length, high quality materials.

Ok fit
This dress was a bit baggy in the bust but I wore it anyway. I wore a big necklace over which enhanced the loose bust area. I couldn't size down bc it would have been to small everywhere else. I recommend for larger chested girls or those with better bras!

Runs small
Didn't get to wear this. It runs small, as this designer usually does. Size up at least one size. I also didn't like that the back meant no bra or buying a low bra. With a large bust, that's just not practical. FYI, this was sent as a replacement dress, I didnt pick it.

Unique pattern stands out.
Wore this to a rehearsal dinner. Might have been me but the pattern wasn't as sliming as I expected. It's also a thicker fabric so it was nice and toasty in the Chicago winter. Loved that I could wear ordinary undergarments without any issue.

Really pretty dress
The dress was amazing. It looked so nice and I got compliments all night. I will say though that the top of the dress was really big that I had to wear a jacket so the sides wouldn't show. That would be my only issue with the dress that the top is too big and the bottom somewhat small. All in all though it worked out and lived how I looked in it.

The green on the dress has more sparkle than I anticipated but very pretty
A very pretty and comfortable dress. The green was more sparkly than I anticipated so I don't know if I would wear it to work again but I might rent for a wedding. Very pretty cut and color.

Flatters your natural curves!
Loved this dress, it fit like a glove and hugged in all the right places. The wedding I went to was outside and it ended up being unseasonably hot, and I would not recommend this dress if you know you are going to be somewhere hot because it was not very breathable and clung to me, but otherwise loved it!

I wore this for a work holiday party, the color and style was perfect for this event!
The fit was pretty close to perfect. The only thing to be careful of is to make sure the under slip is aligned with the rest of the dress after going to the rest room.

Beautiful dress for a holiday xmas party!
Form fitting dress, fits true to size. Perfect for a holiday xmas party. Received several compliments on the dress. Love the sparkly green detail. The only con I had with the dress is the arm holes run small and rubbed my armpits a bit. Not painful, just annoying, which is what some other reviews had said also, so I knew prior to renting. I wear a size 6 and wore a size 6 in this dress. I am 5'4 and have an athletic build. Overall the dress was comfortable and I would rent it again.

I ended up not wearing it because it was too long. I'm 5'4" and it at that awkward stage below the knee. I was really bummed because it's a beautiful dress.

The dress came right on schedule and the return envelope made it so easy to return the next day.
I was looking for a dress to wear to an evening wedding and since there were no reviews to go on, I really went out on a limb in choosing this one. It was particularly difficult because I am all over the board when it comes to sizing. I wear 4 in pants, 2-4 in dresses, and my shirts range from XS-M. I tried to get a feel of how Badgley Mischka runs by looking at other dresses and the reviews said they ran large so I decided to go with a size 2 with a backup in size 0. The size 2 buckled in the neckline but if I stood up super straight it wasn't so bad and after a while I noticed the dress was rubbing under my arms. The size 0 didn't have the buckling but it was so tight under my arms and I thought for sure if I bent down to pick something up the whole thing was going to split. Overall there wasn't a huge difference between the sizes so I'm thinking a size 4 may have worked but the buckling probably would have been worse. The green color is beautiful and sparkles like glitter but rest assured, no glitter! I kept with the metallic look and paired the dress with a gold clutch and gold shoes. Regular bra works fine. Underwear was a little tricky though. I honestly was having so much fun at the wedding that I didn't get any good pictures of the dress. I would recommend this dress but get your regular size and then get a back up in the next size up. I'll definitely be renting from RTR again.

Beautiful dress, but small around the armpit.
I wore this to the opera. The green on the dress was beautiful and really popped against the black. The 4 fit but was a little uncomfortable around the armpit, so I wore the 6. It was roomier in the stomach area and a bit longer, but still fit well. Women with green eyes should consider this dress because of the emerald hue. My eyes looked so bright next to the green metallic on the dress. Overall, the dress was great for the occasion, but a little stiff around the collar and armpit.

This dress was great - very comfortable!
I loved the green color - it was very vibrant and pretty. I thought the dress was so comfortable. I got a number of compliments. I do feel like it ran a tad on the small size and I went up a size to ensure comfort. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Not worn, too small, not true to size.
Wanted to wear this to my cousin's wedding but ended up running out the night before for a new dress. Did not run true to size, which is a shame.
