I loved the dress, it was perfect with the clutch for a night out in Vegas.

I am usually a size 12, I wore the 14... And it was sooooo hard to zip up. Almost didn't think I was going to wear it because I couldn't get the zipper up!!

Sparkly and stretchy, but scratchy

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Rented this for a food and wine event. I was surprised and how easy it was to move around in and how well it fit. With the sequins, I was expecting it to be stiff, but it wasn't at all and is really flattering on an hourglass figure. However, it was very scratchy, so I probably wouldn't rent it again.

I felt like a starlet in that dress! It was actually a resend to back up a size switch.

Size worn: 10
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was perfect. I was able to dance and move effortlessly. The chest was a little big, and I wear a 34 DD. That was such a minor issue. I still loved it and didn't want to take the dress off at the end of the night. The customer service at RTR was crazy supportive. That alone made the experience 5 star!

Felt like a million bucks!

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Such a great option for a Vegas-style casino night as it was all glam. Pinned the bust together so that my bra (regular bra) wouldn't show and used fashion tape to make sure the girls didn't inadvertently come out to play without my knowledge. I had to stand up extra straight/tall to make sure the shoulder straps didn't move / slide off my shoulders (I'm shorter and I think this is why this was happening). Very worthwhile investment!

Covered the leftover baby bump!

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was a backup dress sent to me by the stylist after the zipper on the original dress broke... The stylist did a great job picking this dress, as it was almost the exact dress as my first choice, just in a different color. I liked the black much better (than gold). The dress ran a little big, just because I don't have a huge chest, and it didn't fill up the dress. It did a nice job of covering my left over baby weight, however I do think because I wore the bigger size it made me look bigger. Over all it was a good dress, although I don't think I'll rent it again, I felt like it swallowed me up!

This dress is awesome! Classy and sassy!

Size worn: 10
Rented for: Formal Affair
Wore this event to a black tie gala and received compliments. This ended up being my backup after my original rentals didn't fit. The fit is comfortable, and even with a large bust is still secure (you can wear a regular bra, yay!). The arms run a little big maybe, I had to keep pulling up the strap every once in awhile, but not enough to make the dress annoying. Probably my best RTR experience yet!!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was 22 weeks pregnant for the event and the 6 fit really well. Normally I would probably wear a size smaller, but this had plenty of extra space with the pleats in the front. The top was a bit big--I had to safety pin it a bit because it was a bit baggy in the front.

Cocktail party & dancing with friends in a great dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress wasn't my first pick but a backup option that was over-nighted to me. The 6 fit very well. A few times during the night the straps did fall off my shoulders. I also used fashion tape to ensure that the deep v-neckline didn't get too risque during dancing. The sequins weren't annoying like I thought they would be (no arm chafing). It was great, I got many compliments and friends said they liked this better than the original dress. So WIN!

I wore this dress to a black tie event, I got more compliments then I've ever received on a dress!!

Size worn: 16
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I actually wore the same dress {but in rose gold} to the same Ball last year and after receiving so many compliments on the dress and feeling completely comfortable in it {and being completely in love with it & not wanting to take it off}, I decided to wear the same dress! The 16 fit perfect, the only 2 con's that I had going for this dress were the fact that I have a true hourglass figure, my chest is actually a DD, the stitch holding the two chest pieces together felt like it was going to pop and the fact that I have got a booty. Other then those two things, I did not want to take the dress off at the end of the night!!! I would absolutely recommend this dress to anybody that is going to any sort of formal event and wants to receive compliments all night! I'm normally a 12 in jeans and 12/14 in dresses, depending on the fit and designer, but knowing my body type and the fit of this dress, I decided to go up a size to a 16 and boy am I glad I did, it fit like a glove!

Glamorous and fun

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered both the 6 and the 8. The only difference is the 8 is looser in the chest. I am a 34B and the 6 fit better. The dress can be a little itchy/uncomfortable when sitting because of the sequins (and if the under layer is shifted), but is otherwise easy to move in and perfect for the Gatsby-themed wedding I attended! I'm wearing this dress in gold in June as a bridesmaid. Can't wait :)

Wore to a bachelorette party in Vegas with the sequin theme.

Able to wear normal undergarments which made it super comfortable. Dress was not heavy like I expected a sequin dress, nor was it itchy. The v-neck and cinched waist was very flattering.

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress for my boyfriend's fraternity's formal. I felt very comfortable and beautiful for the whole night. The dress fit great and was much more comfortable than I expected! The only con was that it is incredibly low cut. You can wear a normal bra with it, but I'd absolutely recommend using fashion tape or safety pins as well. I felt so great in the dress that I'm renting it in blue for my own formal this weekend!

Wore For Engagement Photos. Photographs beautifully!

Size worn: 12
Rented for: Other
I rented this for my engagement photos. Love the quality of the dress! Can be a bit trickier for an apple shaped woman. The waist is very tiny so I had to size up a couple sizes which are to other areas of the dress a bit baggy. I have a 33.5" waist and the 12 was doable but snug. However I wear a 36D with a 41" bust and the top felt a bit loose in the 12 (which never happens!) because I had sized up for the waist. Overall it's a classy, beautiful dress and I'm pleased with the choice! I'm having my bridesmaids rent the long hold version for my wedding!

This dress is so beautiful and made well. I wore the 6 even though I am usually a 4. The top was a little big and more snug at the thighs. I wish the dress was a little shorter .... Fell at a weird length. Received a lot of compliments and the dress was very comfortable ... Wore it for 9 hours!

I wore this to work at a formal masquerade ball.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress is beautiful and photographed really well. I wore the smaller backup size, and it was still slightly large, so go down a size. I have hips and it hugged my curves in all the right places. The dress was comfy and I felt great in in the entire night! I did feel like the chest was large on me and I'm a 32 D, so watch out for that if you do not want to show off a lot of cleavage. Overall a wonderful dress that I would rent again!

I wore this to a Christmas event, and loved it! I ordered another Badgley Mischka dress (the gold one on here), but it was too big, so I settled on this. It was very comfortable and flattered the stomach area- gave me a defined waist! Very classic and fun.

This was the perfect dress for our awards ceremony. My original dress did not fit correctly but stylist Janelle helped me to select this dress which worked even better than I imagined. Runs true to size though it is low cut. I pinned it slightly just to make sure it wasn't too low cut.

Dress is great! I received a few comments from strangers just walking into the event that they loved my dress. I usually wear a size 8 but with my larger bust 34DD I wore the size 10 - the 8 wouldn't close in the back. Service was incredible at RTR as the first dress I ordered didn't fit this was the replacement dress and it exceeded my expectations.

Perfect Vegas Dress!

Size worn: 10
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for a night out in Vegas! It was extremely flattering, but me in all the right ways, and had the perfect amount of cleavage. I'm an hourglass shape and it definitely flaunted that! My only gripe was the feeling of the sequins on my arms, however that naturally comes with renting a dress like this!

A bit scratchy, not my favorite

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Party
There wasn't a size 4 available in this dress for the dates I wanted, so I went with the 2 and crossed my fingers. Had a hard time getting the zipper up even with the dress on the hanger, the seams are thick and difficult to work around. The sequins weren't the most comfortable and I felt the dress didn't flatter my body overall. Not a bad dress, just not as great as I was hoping.

I wore this dress for a NYE party and received many compliments! The dress was comfortable and flattering. I was surprised a little at how long the dress was. From the picture of the model, I thought it would be a little shorter, but I still loved it, Unlike others have said, I didn't have any issues with the sequins under my arms. The straps did seem a little long, but I didn't have any issues with them sliding off. Overall a great dress, would rent again!

Perfect NYE dress and just enough neckline to make it sexy but not raunchy :)

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

Seriously, this dress fit like a dream. It was super flattering and not form fitting at all but still gave off the illusion that it was. The lining underneath is super soft and you don't feel constricted by this dress at all. I think it would be a bit more sexy if the length was a little shorter as on most women this dress falls right above the knee (unlike shown on the model). I actually saw two other girls in this dress at my NYE party and they both looked fabulous as well!

I wore this dress for a New Years Eve party, and I got a lot of compliments on it. The neckline is plunging, lower than I expected, and the dress is thicker than I expected (if that makes sense). The sequined material and the lining together were quite thick, and I thought it made me look a little heavier through the hips than I really am. It was fun, but if I had tried it on in a store, I would not have bought it.

This dress fits true to size today a little big. Is definitely recommend the back up as a size down. I'm kinda in between sizes right now but I did go with the smaller size.

Everyone loved this dress! I received so many compliments!

Size worn: 16
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I don't know if it was the holiday binging or that the dress just runs small. For the sake of my ego, let's say it runs small..... I found the sequins to be uncomfortable under my arms after a bit of dancing. It helps to wear some sort of sweater or bolero. I also found the deep neck to be too revealing for me (I'm very busty) so I tacked it up another inch for the night. Overall I liked the look and feel of the dress and everyone else really loved it.
