Stunning dress and felt like a Hollywood star
This is the first time I have rented from Rent the Runway. I wanted a special dress to wear to the Grammy Awards in LA and this was it! I originally ordered the 6R but it was really long so I called and they overnighted me the 6P. I wore this dress with 1 inch heels and it was the perfect length. Such classy service from Rent the Runway. It was a beautiful dress and I got compliments from people walking by all night. I would highly recommend rent this dress if you want to stand out in something special. Have been very impressed with RTR! Wow!

This is the perfect dress to stand out in!
This dress was beautiful. It ran true to size for me, and I'm glad I ordered the 10 Long, because it was almost too short with heels on. I got so many compliments, and (in my opinion) I had the best dress at our Barrister's Ball! It was comfortable and I had no trouble with itchiness. I did have to pull it up occasionally when the dancing got crazy, but it was well worth it! I'm in love with this dress and would wear it again and again if I could.

Glamorous night at the Met
This was perfect for a night at the Met Opera, with a short sleeved fur coat to top it off. It was comfortable and stayed up well, but definitely ran small. Thankfully, the RTR goddesses swept in at the last minute to send two new sizes!

Glitz and Glamourous!!!
What a lovely gown to wear to a formal event. I felt fabulous and fancy. It is a little heavy and the top of the dress curled under my arms, revealing the inside of the gown, but I tried to be aware of it and wore a wrap. I would recommend heels because the regular was a little long on my 5'3 height. It was also a little roomy in the bust, but I think proper under garments would of fixed it right up. Thanks for always coming through for me RTR!

The dress hugged my hips a little more than I liked. The bust fit very well though!

Gorgeous, unforgettable gown. If you want to be the star of the show, this is your dress!
I wore this dress to a wedding reception in Richmond, VA, where the couple had married several months before in FL and were having their wedding reception/party in VA. The event was at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and this dress could not have been more perfect for the occasion. It is literally one of the most beautiful dresses I've ever put on. I received compliments ALL night long! I'm quite busty, short-waisted and apple shaped, so the 10R cut into my hips a bit, but the RTR girls were unbelievable and sent me the 12R overnight for free. My only complaint would be that the sequins are kind of itchy, but it's well worth it to look and feel as beautiful as this dress makes you look and feel! BEST customer service experience I've ever had. I loved this dress! 100% recommend to anyone looking to shine on a big night out.

Beautiful gown, shiny, colorful, young
The dress was great, but it was a little big on top, too long in center front, and the zipper keeps sticking badly at the seam on the waist.

The fabric on this dress is amazing. It looks something like lamé, but it's actually tiny sequins.
This dress definitely runs long. I like it to not show my shoes when I wear heels but not drag, and so I wasn't sure if I should get the regular or the long, since I am 5'9". The regular is DEFINITELY long enough for about 3" or 4" heels. I actually measure a 29A, so I had to wear a bra underneath of the dress to have it fit comfortably in the chest. That being said, this dress was everything I could have wanted. The material is beautiful, not too shiny at all like I was nervous about with a sequined dress, and it fit wonderfully throughout the waist.

Red Carpet Gorgeous!
I wore this dress to my senior prom. It had originally been a second choice for another dress that I had wished to wear yet became unavailable three days before the event. Luckily this dress was available and while next time I would go with the regular length as I am 5'6 on a good day, I wore very high heels and the dress was perfect! I received countless compliments and felt like a Hollywood star the entire night :) perfect perfect dress and I recommend it to everyone!

It was great quality and didn't seem to fall down. It was a bit itchy on the top bodice but I seemed to make it work. I did not wear heels with it but I could have. It was perfect!

Glamorous, Stunning, Knockout dress!!
I LOVE this dress. I wore it to the 2013 Marine Corps Birthday Ball. It was stunning and so classy. I have seriously never gotten that many compliments in one night! It was everything you would ever want out of a shiny, sparkly, gold gown...a total show-stopper! I ordered the 4R and the 6R. I am a bit busty so I had trouble zipping the top on the 4R and ended up going with the 6R. It fit like perfection. The length was perfect with my 4 inch heels. It did puddle a bit, but I loved that part. I didn't have any trouble with the zipper like the other reviews have stated. I was hesitant about it being strapless because I didn't want to have to pull it up all night, but it stayed in place all night with sitting, standing, and lots of dancing. Needless to say.... I LOVED IT! RTR is an amazing company to work with because of the outstanding customer service! I have recommended this site to EVERY single one of my friends! I will definitely be renting from them again soon!!

Looks like liquid gold!!
I fell in love with this dress and ordered it for a black-tie event, but it was too fancy (most people would be wearing short skirts). I'm 5'9" and tried a 6L and 8L. I usually wear a 8 comfortably. The 6 was way too tight. The 8 was even tight around the chest and since the dress is all sequins, it is heavy so all the weight was around my chest (which is "average" at best - doesn't hold much up). The sequins were rubbing under the arms as well. The length was just a bit too long (unless I wanted to wear 3 inch heels - which I don't wear). I think if I would have gotten one size up and regular length, it would have been perfect. I would still try it again in the future for an extremely fancy event!! Like I said before - it's an extremely gorgeous dress - just needs the right size and event to be perfect.

Perfect dress to wear ringing in the new year!
This dress was as amazing and fantastic as all the other reviews say. It's the perfect rental dress (because how many times will you wear the same full length liquid gold gown?) and I got compliments on it all night. The weight of the dress was not bothersome to me, I didn't spend the night pulling the dress up either. I tend to be between a 6 and an 8 usually, in this case the 8 was perfect. I got a long at 5'9 but it was very long, my highest heels made it manageable but if you aren't going high I would get a regular length. Every girl should wear this dress at least once in their life!

Gorgeous dress and great customer service
I ordered this dress in a size 0P for a black tie wedding. The dress was beautiful but ended up being too tight despite looking at reviews of other girls that were similar to me also wearing a 0. The dress fit everywhere but my chest and I could barely breathe. RTR was super understanding and overnighted me the 2P in time at no charge! The dress was absolutely gorgeous and I received compliments all night. It was too long even with 3 inch heels but I expected that with me being so short. (The picture shows without shoes) I wish I could have kept it though, it was the prettiest dress I've ever worn. Highly recommend this dress, however for petite but busty girls, I would advise going one size up.

Zipper is the worst! Just doesn't zip properly. Plus, I'm only 5'6 and the regular was noticeably too short in only 3" heels.

SHOW STOPPER!
I ordered an 8R and 6R as I usually am right in between sizes. The 6R was a little tight in the bust area which made it harder to zip. PROS: looks amazing in person and pictures, glistens in the sunlight, comfortable, flowy so hides any problem areas. CONS: alittle itchy under my arms because of the sequins, hard to zip!. Used it for my engagement photo shoot and used the pic for my save the date card. Everyone told me that we looked so elegant and like movie stars! Overall absolutely loved the dress! Definitely using RTR again! They were great

Fun dress to snap a few photos in
I modeled for a two day photography workshop. This dress was my plan B so I still had a few photos taken in it. It is lovely, however I would not recommend renting this for an event where you would be doing a lot of walking/standing, it is very heavy. The gold is not sequins like I thought but some kind of metal.

I wore this for a black tie wedding. It is a glamorous gown. I would definitely get the regular length. It fit perfect with my heels. It was snug around the waste where I usually where a size 2 so I ended up wearing the 4. Loved the dress!

I had so many compliments!!! Love this dress!
This dress was so beautiful! It ran pretty long and the bust was tight. At the time I was a size 2 and weighed 120 lbs. The material is super itchy and kind of scratched up my arms, but it was still worth it. I felt like I had the best dress there! Would love to wear again for my maternity shoot.

A beautiful, flattering sparkler!
I wore this for a Gatsby themed New Years party. The fit was great, I am a C cup so no bra was needed but I never worried about "falling out" because construction was great. My only words of advice are to my fellow petite ladies. I'm 5 feet even and had to wear 4.5 inch heels with the PETITE! The length was fine with the heels and I could walk well, but if you are short and don't like heels, this will be an issue for you! Over all, I felt great and the dress moved so beautifully!

Gorgeous gown, tons of sparkle!
I am 4'11'' and even in 6" heels, this dress was still too long on me. The bust was also a bit roomy, even with my 32C padded bra. However, It was definitely the most noticeable and glamourous number on the dance floor!

It was perfect for my friends Great Gatsby NYE 2014 house party.
as other viewers reported zipper in back is tricky, usually my rib cage allots for me to wear size 6-8 dress size but the zipper on this dress only closed on a size 10 which without a padded bra would have fallen off. the only size left was 10 long , it certainly is long as I am 5'7" with 5 inch heels it was still dragging a little. it does give a great long look to it and the material is light and flowy that it did not matter. so many compliments and questions where i got it. truly a beautiful creation.

Beautiful, standout dress; Many compliments at an affair full of beautiful women.
This dress is great for a formal holiday affair where you really want to stand out (it's gold; it's long; it's sparkly). I think it fits a little snug (I usually wear a 6 or an 8 and this was a little tight); by the end of the night it was digging into my ribs and scratching a bit. I wore the 8R with a kitten (1") heel and it probably had an extra inch on the ground, but was not a problem. Lastly, since I think the waste was a little snug, with the sequence and the way they reflected light, the dress could tend to make you look bigger than you actually are (see the 3rd picture). Overall all though, this dress is very fancy and really makes a statement. Love RTR!

Amazing dress, but should have ordered one size larger.
Absolutely loved this dress! It was perfect for the Gatsby themed New Years Eve party we went to. All my dresses I own are either a 2 or a 4 but I can honestly say a 6 would have been better, so for me the sizing was a bit small. I also ordered the regular length but next time with this designer I will do the short length. I totally recommend this dress and totally recommend Rent the Runway - incredible experience!

Pure gold!
This was my back up dress, but I ended up wearing it because I didn't know when else, besides NYE, I could wear an all sparkly gown and not look tacky! I LOVED this dress. I can't say that enough. It speaks for itself when you put it on. Minimal jewelry is needed which is awesome because it is one less thing to worry about. The down-side to this dress was it was too big. I wore the 4R but needed the 2R badly. My normal dress size is a 2 but I went with a 4 because of the "contemporary sizing". It didn't matter! Because the dress is heavier due to the fabric, I was pulling it up all night! I tried wearing "sticky boobs" to help fill out the top but it didn't do anything. That being said, I would order this dress again in a heartbeat, I would just order my normal size. I wore 3 inch heels and my dress grazed the floor. I'm 5'6 so it was perfect! Order this dress. You will receive so many compliments from both guys and girls and feel incredible!

Beautiful dress, just not for a wedding!
This dress was unreal! I got a lot of compliments all night. However, I also got a lot of side eye. It was a last minute delivery as the other dress I rented didn't fit properly-it was literally delivered 30 mins before the wedding. It was gorgeous but very showy! Which is not exactly how I was looking to stand out at a wedding! The fit was great. The Long was the perfect length with my heels. The RTR go to girls were so unbelievably helpful (except for the one who said this dress would be perfect for a wedding haha). I have already rented another dress- I love this company!

Felt like a red carpet star! Received compliments the entire night.
This gown was absolutely stunning!! Seriously every 10 minutes I had strangers come up to me and compliment me on the dress. It runs long, which I prefer anyhow. The chest area is pretty tight and the zipper is extremely hard to zip up. Took my friend and I about 5 minutes to get me into the dress hahaha However, it was def worth it! I wore it with the strapless stick able disposable bras that I added on prior to checkout. I am finding that due to my broad upper body, when I would regularly wear a 4 or 6, in the Mishka Badgley, I need an 8.
