You put this on and you won't want to try on another dress.
This dress is very flattering. It was very long, the material was a bit heavy so you will get warm if your a warm climate. Photo's don't really do this dress justice, it looks like a lovely gown in the photo but once you get it on its absolutely stunning. The only con's I have is that if you have larger breast I suggest going up a size because where the dress drapes on the shoulder is tight and a bit uncomfortable under the armpit. Other then that gorgeous smile gown for a black tie event.

The gown didn't end up working, but at least Rent the Runway has good customer service.
I had tried on other Badgley Mishka gowns in a size 4 and always had them run long, not so with this one. I'm only 5'5 and even the 4L was far too short to wear heels with. I had ordered the 4R and 4L and ended up returning both, luckily i was able to borrow a gown from a friend.

Pretty Dress but Runs VERY short
Loved the fabric and detail but runs way short. I ordered the regular and long but the long was damaged and therefore not available. The regular was way too short even with flats.

way too short
I'm only 5'3" but I was unable to wear this dress because it was so short on me. I have a short torso and small body in general but it only went to my ankles. There were also sequins missing from the dress when I got it.

Having a nice dress available quickly really made my experience less stressful
I wore it to a black tie event in DC and it isn't really out there like most dresses but very classy. Happy with my selection for something basic. The top of the dress is a little big around the bust area. I could of wore a 4 but it would of been uncomfortable tight, the 6 fit me appropriately for my event.

Perfect for my short height and form fitting from hips down! Stunning!
The dress is actually a bit heavy material so it will flow and drape properly. Def need some heels (2-3inches) with this dress and you really don't need a lot of accessories to dress it up. As for walking in it - I had no issues moving whatsoever since the material was stretchy so no tripping!

I wore this dress for a family wedding. Everyone said I looked very glamorous!
I wore 4 inch heels and the length was perfect. Dress is form fitting, but not tight and not constricting. I recommend you try on this dress with the exact undergarments you are planning to wear. I didn't and you can see from the photo where my underwear hit my waist.

Form Fitting, but too short.
Nothing all that special. Fabric and fit were meh. Not to mention I'm only 5'4" and the long was far too short. It didn't even hit the ground while I was barefoot.

Slimming and lengthening dress that will make you look great.
This dress was my favorite of five long black dresses I tried on from RTR after a mix up with an order. It was simple, sleek, but elegant with the shoulder beading. It was very form fitting but also comfortable. I wore mine with 5.5 inch heels and thought it was just the right length. A 0L would have fit someone 5'7'' without heels and would be much too short with heels. Also great for someone with a small bust like me.

This was my backup dress and the process was simple. I love this dress!
This dress is a heavy jersey material. It's not thin or flimsy. It fit perfectly. Hugged all the curves in the right places without pulling or bulging. I received tons of compliments all night. This dress is a stunner! Get it!

Elegant and understated gown
I don't often go for long gowns at RTR because of my height. I noticed in the reviews a number of petite women rented the dress with no complaints about the length so I decided to take a risk. I thought the length was actually bordering on being a bit short in my heels (single soled, no crazy platform) but overall this was a very lovely dress. The embellished shoulder and cape gave the otherwise understated gown a bit of glamour. The dress was quite comfortable but it felt a bit loose at the bust on the side of the dress with no shoulder. I had to use double sided tape to attempt to keep it in place. I found the torso on the other hand to be quite clingy so I wore my spanx with this one to smooth it all out. Overall I felt pretty in this dress.

Great dress!
Perfect for a black tie wedding. Runs a little short, barefoot it is floor length but with kitten heels it's a little short. Very comfortable dress and elegant! The shoulder detail adds the right amount of sparkle.

The dress was exactly what I had hoped it would be! Great first experience!!
The dress fit perfectly. I ordered both a 0 and 2. Each dress did not fit tremendously different, but the size 2 was much more comfortable. Definitely a fitted dress and hugged the body perfectly. It was a bit longer than I had hoped, but I am only 5'0"! I ended up wearing the highest heel I could possibly find and the dress still touched the ground a bit. I probably should have ordered the petite, but I didn't because the other reviews mentioned that the dress ran a bit shorter (not short enough for me!). Overall, loved it! Looking forward to ordering again!

I didn't wear it...it was too short
I'm only 5'3" and I got a regular and should have ordered the long. Even in flat feet it was too short and my heels are 6". I'm sad b/c I love this dress and it had great reviews.

Beautiful dress
Wore this to a gala. It was a tad bit on the short side, especially for being a 4 long. I'm 5' 7'' and the long didn't cover my feet. Fortunately, I had cute shoes too. The bust was a little tight. Overall, a beautifully made gown. I probably should have got a 6 long.

Fabulous!
Based on reviews, I rented both the 4R and 6R. I wore the 4R because it fit better. As other reviewers mentioned, the dress runs a little shorter in front, but not enough to make a difference. I just wore a shorter, sexier heel with it. It is form fitting and any bumps will show. Although I'm in very good shape (spend 6 days a week in the gym), I still wore a body shaper to eliminate a not-flat-enough stomach. I received many compliments all night long and was very pleased with the dress. If you are body conscious, this dress isn't for you. But, if you have no problem flaunting it, you will love this dress!

Beautiful dress, beautiful fabric, perfect for a formal event.
I loved everything about this dress, but unfortunately, I was unable to wear it to my event. I am 5'4 and for the first time in my life a dress was too short on me. All other aspects of the dress run true to size except the length. I am normally an 8R and ordered a 10R as a ordered a backup size after reading the reviews of the dress length. Unfortunately, both dresses fell to just above my ankles. Overall, my customer experience with RTR was incredible and will definitely rent again even though this dress didn't work out for me.

Super comfortable! The size 0L was a perfect fit, but the length was quite short. I would've had to wear flats. The 2L was perfect in length for my 3 inch heels, but not as fitted.

When my boyfriend couldn't stop staring at me! It was the sweetest moment of the night.
The dress fit great and there were no malfunctions with it. The only cons were the length and the tightness around the calves. It was a little shorter than I wanted it and it sometimes was hard to walk/dance. But all in all, I felt amazing and my boyfriend was swooning all night!

Zipper worked, the size 0R fit like a glove, it is tight so no underwear could be worn, but it's black so was not revealing like that. Definite good dress for any black tie event!

STUNNING!
Loved this rental. I am normally a size 4, so I rented the 2 and the 4 after reading all of the reviews. The 4 fit great except for the length - it was WAY TOO SHORT (which is weird because I am only 5'2). After a slight panic session, I decided to try on the size 2. It fit perfectly and the length was just right. Long story short, I think that someone hemmed the size 4 that I received. Great rental, Definitely runs small. Great for people who are 5'1 or 5'2.

I ordered a 6L and 8L for a formal event. I'm only 5'7", but both were way too short! The 6L was above my ankles. Beware of the length if you're not petite. Luckily I ordered a back-up dress!

This dress arrived on time with the tags still on! A brand new dress! Gorgeous dress, fit like a glove. Comfortable and elegant at the same time. I wore this dress to a black tie event. Lots of guest were wearing black dresses, I didn't stand out too much, but this dress was the creme de la creme of the black dresses. I'm 5'7, wore 3 inch heels and the dress fell perfectly. I'm renting the aqua dress, just like this for my next event!

Great for a black-tie wedding!
Great dress! Tons of compliments. 0 and 2 both fit well but went with the 2 because it was longer. I ordered the regular length and the dress, which is a bit longer in back, just barely skimmed the floor in 4 1/2" heels. If you are at the cutoff height (5'6") and skinny and want the dress to be as long as in the photo, I would recommend ordering the long length if you are wearing good heels. You could definitely see the tops of my shoes in front but they were simple, elegant peep toe pumps (actually Badgley Mischka's as well) and it looked fine.

This was a beautiful dress! The beading on it is beautiful - turquoise, purple, black. The dress is heavy and has an inner lining. Unfortunately I wasn't able to wear the sizes I purchased because they were extremely short!!! It didn't flow to the floor like the picture shows or the size and fit said it would. :( I ordered a 4R and 6R (because it said 5'3" to 5'6" is R and I am 5'1 1/2") and both only went as far as a little above my ankles (nothing like a highwater dress), which made the dress not look so elegant on me. I didn't expect my shoes to be seen but of course every part of my shoe and ankle were visible, which took away from the gorgeous dress. I was hesitant to order this dress because I was worried about it being too long since I am so short. Higher heels only made the dress look worse. Not the look the description described. So disappointing!

I did not end up wearing this dress to my event, went with my 1st choice. The dress is very beautiful. The subtle details of the beading and the back are gorgeous. However, I didn't feel like I stood out. If you want just an elegant black dress, this is the one for you. It is VERY form fitting though, mermaid style. You may need spanx. :) Also, it's a heavy dress and pretty thick.

The dress was perfect for my black tie gala! It is very sleek, classic and elegant. I received so many compliments. I am a size 8 and it fit snug but not too tight. I am 5'7" and needed to wear the 8L. The 8 regular was too short with 4 inch heels. I paired it with a wrist cuff and I wish I got earrings as well. I highly recommend this dress!

This dress is really short! The model must be wearing a long size, because even barefoot the dress didn't touch the ground. I tried both the 2R and 4R, which were nearly identical fits, minus the length. The 4R was just a tad looser, but not by much. It is very form fitting, so be prepared to wear some spanx if you aren't perfectly smooth!

What length did you order &/or what height of heel did you wear? I was interested in your feedback as being near the same age & height but I usually wear a 10 so that may make a difference if not comparable to your body type.

I wore this dress to a work gala in New York. It fit like a dream--if you're short go with the regular instead of the long size. I absolutely love this dress. It's comfortable yet definitely formal. It's also simple but makes an elegant statement. I also got complements on the dress from several people--at least one stranger. Be warned that you need either spanx or flat abs for this dress. It is a wonderful dress and I see why so many people give it high marks.

This was my back-up dress and Oh man - it almost became the dress I wore. Totally gorgeous, form fitting a rich-feeling. I only opted to wear my other dress because it was gold and I wanted to stand out in a sea of black. BUt even if I had worn this one, I know I would have turned heads. The regular length was perfect with my 4 inch heels.

Rented this dress for a black tie ball thrown by the hospital I work at. It was perfect! Conservative but showed off all my curves! I am 5'6 120 LBS and the 0R fit me perfectly but was too short even with a low heel on. I ended up wearing the 0L with 3 1/2" heels and it was perfect, but definately didn't puddle on the ground like the picture shows. A very form fitting dress but lots of control in it too.

I wore this for a black tie affair for work & it was perfect - sexy without being slutty, just fun enough without being obnoxious. I thought the jeweled shoulder might look tacky, but it was beautiful & the dress fit PERFECT. It IS a little short, I am 5'4" 1/2, but I wore kitten heels & it hit the ground juuust right. 100% recommend for a formal event - Very satisfied! Thanks RTR!

Fabulous dress!
This dress was my 1st choice for a black tie wedding and I loved it! I got so many compliments on the dress and earrings that I rented. I was nervous the long would be too long but as the website said, I'm 5'6" so went with the long and it was perfect! It was really comfortable and fit really well. I would definitely recommend this for anyone with a formal event.
