The dress came right on schedule and the return envelope made it so easy to return the next day.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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.

Great holiday season dress!

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was really great. The fabric had a little stretch and it was comfortable to wear all night. I was one of the organizers of the event and had quite a bit of running around to do, along with some bending and lifting--the dress was still comfortable! I got tons of compliments. It was true to size, but I did find the 0 a little tighter than other 0's I have worn. I really could have worn the 2, which was my back up size, but it was a little looser through the shoulders on my small frame.

great dress.

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to my work Holiday Party and couldn't have been happier -- I got a ton of compliments. The green panel is slightly more metallic and shiny than it appears in pictures. The material has a lot of stretch to it so you don't really have to worry about renting the wrong size. If I had to provide one drawback, I am 5'6" and the dress hit just below my knees which made walking up steps or walking fast a little tricky, but the stretch and give to the material makes this issue pretty easy to deal with. I highly recommend this dress!

Took me a bit to warm up to the dress but by the end of the night it was great.

True to size. Don't recommend for extreme hour glass shapes. It barely fit my hips and was baggy around my waist. Top fit great for a full bust. Very little give to the fabric and a bit difficult to walk in. The color and shape was stunning. Length was perfect. I'm 6' and it came to my knees!

Flattering alternative to traditional flapper dress

Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This is one of those dresses that looks exactly like the model's picture, even though my pics kind of suck. For curvy ladies, it's a nice option for a flapper party, as it has some shimmer but it's not going to hide your waist. There is some stretch to the dress, which means that you won't get the nice, flat lines of a dress without that stretch, but it does move and swivel with you. Also, it does highlight your arms with the way that the sleeves are cut, so if they are a self-conscious spot for you, this may not be your favorite dress.

True to size, the 6 fit me like a glove. You FOR SURE need to wear a complimentary gold necklace, I felt like it really added to the dress. Received a lot of compliments on it, would def rent it again for a holiday party. Wore it for a rehearsal dinner and felt great in it all night long! Don't think I would rent for a wedding as it is a little snug and I don't think I would be able to dance like I would want to in it all night.

A little snug in the hips, but that may be more related to a post-baby body than the dress itself. I did get a ton of compliments and felt great! Plenty of room in the bust (I'm nursing so I needed some room).

The dress is so much better in person than in pictures. The material is flattering and comfortable, and it just fit really well. I got so many compliments throughout the night, and I'm honestly debating renting this again in December, because it would be a perfect holiday party dress! I ordered the 4 and the 6 because I was nervous that the dress was going to be really tight, but the 4 fit perfectly. I will usually vary anywhere between a 2 and a 6 for dresses, depending on the style, but this fit pretty true to size.

Great dress, lots of compliments

Size worn: 14
Rented for: Wedding
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.

The size 2 was a perfect fit! Only complaint is that the hem on one side had come "unstitched". Luckily I was able to get some thread and mend the hem before this out of town wedding. So note, be sure and try on the dresses BEFORE you leave town :) But the dress itself is gorgeous and very classy.

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!

I rented this for a daytime holiday fundraiser. The dress fits true in size. It had some nice stretch to it except in the arm area. It fit a bit tights under the arms. The length came right to my knees. I also rented a gold & crystal necklace to go with it and it looked really pretty. I would rent it again.

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

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Party
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 out for my birthday. People in previous reviews are correct; the green is a little different in person but still beautiful and glittery! The fabric of this dress was very comfortable and very giving. It definitely hits right at or maybe even below the knee, it felt long without my heels on, but that wasn't a big deal. I also ended up wearing large earrings instead of a statement necklace and worked great! Sorry no pic, was too busy having fun. Great dress.

I typically wear a size 4 and ordered that with the size 2 as my backup but the 4 was unavailable as someone had returned it damaged so I ordered a different backup dress. Luckily the size 2 fit because I ended up not liking the backup so I was able to wear this dress. This dress is unbelievable in person....the green is gorgeous! It was perfect for my work holiday party and I got tons of compliements. The 2 was a little tight in my bust area but I'm pretty large chested so I would suggest ordering this dress in your size and maybe a size smaller as a backup. I would definitely rent this again in a size 4!

Beautiful dress. Fit well, but be cautious... this dress is definitely on the longer side (it hit at my knee caps). However, it was perfect for my fiance's work holiday party. Another negative about the dress is that it rides up, and when it does, there appears to be a little "pooch" in the stomach region. Overall though, I really liked this dress and my experience with RTR. I will absolutely rent again!

A great dress for an evening work event.

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress was the perfect dress to wear to my boyfriend's evening work event. I needed something that wasn't too revealing since it was a networking event, and I was meeting his boss. The dress still hugged my curves though and my boyfriend was a big fan. I'm short, and the dress came a couple inches below my knees. I thought it looked okay at that length, but if you are short and want it at a more traditional length, you could use temporary hemming tape. I wore tall spanks shorts underneath since the dress lays flat across the stomach.

The fit was true to size, and I loved the green. Slightly different than the sea of solid black dresses, but still nice. I liked the neckline and length- the dress is attractive but I didn't have to worry about accidentally flashing too much skin, so I was comfortable. Gold accessories are definitely the way to go with the green. I loved this dress and wished I didn't have to send it back.

The top half fit great, maybe even a little roomy in the waist. The bottom was a little more snug in the hips and thighs than I normally wear, but I'm also thicker there due to athletics and training. The material was comfy and a little stretchy for some give in the hips. I got LOTS of compliments on the dress. It worked perfect for this event.
