Such a stunning dress!
This dress is such a show-stopper. So gorgeous, and such a flattering fit. The zipper is a TOTAL pain in the butt, though. At first I though it was because I needed to size up, but I was swimming in the 2R that RTR was nice enough to over-night me in my fit of panic. Advice- pinch the zipper while pulling the fabric away from your body (this takes another person to accomplish) and try zipping that way. It gets stuck right under the band, but if you can get it to that point, it will fit! Overall, this dress was amazing, and I am entirely impressed with the customer service and efficiency of this company. I will definitely utilize their services again!

I just loved how effortless it was to rent and return!
The dress was gorgeous, although there was a big difference between the 4p and 6p. (Wish there was a size in between!) the 4 was a little small in the bust area for me, but the 6 was far too large. The 4p was perfect for me, length-wise... Oddly enough, the 6 was a little shorter. I wore platform heels with the 4p and it was the right length. The zipper was difficult, but other than that, I liked that I felt comfortable once zipped, and I didn't have to keep pulling the dress up all night. I did have to purchase spanx, because underneath where the waist cinched, it squeezed a little (which I was worried about in the pictures of others, but the spanx definitely helped).

Photographs beautifully!
I wear a size 2 in jeans but usually take a 0 in dresses. I ordered both sizes in this dress for my photo shoot and the 0 fit like a glove! It was the perfect length, as well. It is a little heavy because of the sequins so you need to make sure the size you order fits snugly. Also the zipper was a little tough like other reviews had said, but we worked with it without too much trouble! Another note: if you're blonde and light skinned like myself, sometimes wearing gold can be a little intimidating. This dress is the PERFECT shade of gold! Overall fabulous dress for any occasion.

It is a head turner for sure and if you're looking for an epic dress, this one's for you!
This dress was absolutely beautiful. It made for great photos and I felt so glamorous wearing it. It especially shines on the dance floor when they dim the lights. Amazing dress but it does seem to run a little small so thankfully my backup size worked. It was just too tight on my waist but I never had to pull the dress up at all so that's a plus in my book. I had no shortage of compliments which made me feel great! I will definitely be renting from rent the runway again.

Shine through the night
LOVE: Dress! I usually don't wear sequins because they drop everywhere - this one worked out fine! Everyone complimented my dress all night - felt like I'm an Oscar winning actress! Also, fabric is pretty thick so I didn't have to wear my bra. MEH: Fabric is kinda saggy so it's REALLY hard to zip in general. I tried to zip and unzip without wearing it and it was still hard. If you don't have an extra hand to help you out, this can be a challenge. Also, glad I rented regular not long one - I'm 5'7", wore 3 in heel but it was still little bit dragging on the ground, which made little hard to dance.

Junior League gala was a ball in this dress
I got so many compliments on this dress! The Long was very long - I am 5'10" and had 3 inch heels on, and it was still a bit of a tripping hazard. I love Badgley Mischka dresses (particularly gold sparkly ones), but the zipper on this was really difficult to zip. My poor boyfriend actually cut his finger trying to get a hold of it! I went braless with this dress and it worked great since there is kind of a sticky lining running right around the top of the dress. Be aware that the dress is fairly heavy on the hanger because of all the sequins. Once I had it on, I barely noticed the extra weight. Super fun dress for a very fancy event - be prepared to be the center of attention! I accessorized with a navy wrap and navy shoes.

Beautiful dress!
The dress was absolutely stunning. The zipper was a hassle like all the other reviews mention. I think the 6 regular would have been better for my height.

Great dress!! Definitely a show stopper!
This dress was amazing!! The only bad thing about it was the zipper! It was very very difficult to get up... It took 2 people! Other than that, I have no complaints! I wore it for a New Years Eve gala and it was perfect!!

The zipper was a bit tricky and I couldn't get it zipped my myself. The heavy fabric mixed with the length made stairs tricky. But it was comfortable and gorgeous!

The most glamorous dress I have ever worn. I felt so beautiful!
I wore this dress in my sisters New Years Eve wedding. The dress looked so good on all of us in the bridal party (5 girls of all different body types and sizes). It was the most beautiful dress, especially in person. But it does photograph beautifully and it was comfortable! I had to wear a bra with it but I wore a strapless bra and everything stayed up all night. I'm 5"8 and wore the 4 long with 3 inch heels. Despite the heels it was a liiiiittle long but I wasn't tripping over myself so it was good and the 4 regular was jut too short. Overall, I loved this dress. It was so beautiful and I felt so amazing wearing it.

Gorgeous dress. Arrived on time. Thank you RTR!!
Fit great except the length. I wore the 4P and it was still too long. Walking/dancing was ok but going up and down steps was scary. Still an amazing dress! #wedding #newyearseve #gold #badgleymischka

Eye catching once on but very difficult to get on
I received many compliments on this dress and it was perfect for New Year's Eve! I'm a shorter girl and the petite was the perfect length for me with 3 inch heels on. However, there were quite a few problems. The dress that I received wasn't in the best shape. The hem line of the dress liner was fraying pretty badly and the hook and eye at the top of the zipper was missing. This dress was also VERY hard to zip up but once it was zipped, it fit fine. The fact that the hook and eye was missing probably made it even harder to zip up. All in all I really liked the dress and it was great for NYE but I wouldn't ever rent it again.

Wore this to my fiancé's ball at West Point!! Felt like such a sparkling princess all nice long.
I found this dress to be so flattering and comfortable!! I loved getting the chance to wear it. It was a little long even with super high heels and the zipper is super tricky (even if it's big on you). I had to zip it backwards, swirl it around and pull it up. Kind of crazy, but totally worth it!!

The pictures and details from the reviews made it easy to choose my size!
Dress fit true to size but was ordered as a backup because there was only one size in the dress I wanted(which wound up fitting :). This dress was really beautiful, the sequins were really tiny which made it really soft and glimmered in person.

Awesome!!!!! Best dress at the Mardi Gras ball. I will never buy a ball gown again.
Fit perfectly. The weight did make it slip while I danced so I'd rent a size down and try both sizes the night of the event. Overall it is an amazing dress.

Perfect New Years Eve dress!
Like everyone says, the zipper is tough and I needed to have my neighbor help get me into it before my date arrived. But this dress is a huge head turner. I wore it to a NYE party at a fancy hotel. I thought it may be a little too formal because it's long, but the sparkle allowed that dress to fit right in. I got so many compliments, including a couple people who shouted out the windows of their cars that they loved the dress.

This dress is a stunner ! I received many compliments throughout the night.
I ordered a 10p and a 12p and the 12p fit perfectly. The only con was that the zipper was extremely difficult to zip and no lie my husband had to use pliers to zip it up because it stuck halfway up. It was actually funny :)

The dress was seriously perfect. I was worried about the fit and length because of other reviews, but was very pleased. RTR was awesome and easy to work with. The zipper was a little hard, but my sister was able to get it for me.

I received a large number of compliments and certainly felt elegant.
It ran a bit smaller than I was expecting. I usually wear between an 8 and a 10 in dresses, but I 12 would have been much appreciated. Overall I enjoyed my first rent the runway experience though. The dress was absolutely stunning and everyone loved it even if breathing was a struggle.

Incredible dress, fun to wear!
I love this style of dress by BM; I previously rented the same dress in green. I found that I had to go up to 8P probably because of the sequins but the 6P fit as well (I just would have needed major help with the zipper that my BF couldn't provide). The petite length is perfect for someone short who is willing to wear heels - I'm 5'3 and wore 3 inch heels. I got complements all night long and loved how the dress moved while I walked. Would definitely rent again if I had a place to wear it!

Not for tiny frames.
This was my backup for my engagement party dress (which didn't work out either). It's pretty, but I couldn't wear it. I'm a 32A and even the 0R was happy and large for my chest (even with a super padded bra). I wanted it to hug and boost me a little, but it did not! It is cinched in a weird spot and accentuated my torso an unflattering way (I have a somewhat short torso and longer legs but this just made me look disproportioned. And it was super heavy (which I wouldn't mind at all if I loved it.) I really want to wear a full sequin gown still so hopefully one of the other cuts will work better for my frame!

This was a dress like no other
The fit was pretty good, I ordered a 4l and 6l. I think I should've been in a 2 just by the way it fit, but it wasn't falling all over and it was super comfortable! It was a dress like no other! I got tons of compliments and boy did it shimmer!! Really loved it. The only problem was the zipper-it was a bit of a trick. Overall, loved it!!

It was my first time renting, but definitely won't be my last! I can't wait to do it again!
This was my first time renting, and I loved it. I also rented the recommended earrings and they were perfect. The only reason this dress didn't get 5 stars was because of the way it fit across the chest. I wear a 32C bra size. I usually wear a size 2 (depends on brand, etc.), but the 2P was a bit snug. Because RTR recommended ordering a second size smaller, I also ordered a 0P, which didn't work at all. I ended up wearing the 2P and it was fine. I just wish I would've had a little more room across the chest. I usually have a hard time finding dresses that aren't too long for me, because I'm short and I don't like to wear super tall heels (over 3 inches). However, I could've gotten away with flats in this dress. In the end, I ended up wearing 2 inch heels and they worked well. I have to admit that I'm not really a "sparkly" person, but this dress was fantastic. I received several compliments on it, and I felt great. I can't wait to rent again!

I loved this dress however the zipper was terrible. It took two people to get the zipper up and that was even when I went up a size. Other than that the dress was perfect for my sorority formal. I got compliments all night.

Amazing customer service.
Originally upon reading the reviews I decided to go with the 0p because I'm 5'4 and most of he reviews said it ran long and I placed the order, but not too long after my mom told me I should get the 0r also just to be on the safe side and I contacted rtr to let them know and they added the second dress to my order no problem. I wore this dress to my senior prom and absolutely loved it, it was stunning and I got compliments all throughout the night. Just as in the other reviews, the zipper was a hassle so just be prepared to deal with that but the length was perfect with heels. The bust was a little loose but I am on the smaller size for boobs so that was to be expected, a padded bra should do the trick. Overall everything was amazing and I loved my first rtr experience I will definitely be back.

This dress is a showstopper
I wasn't sure of my size so I ordered both a 2 and a 0. I ended up wearing the zero, but I honestly would've been better off if I had ordered a 00 because I was readjusting the top of the dress throughout the night. That's my fault for not knowing my size though! I ordered it as a long because I'm 5'8 and I wore 3 inch heels, and the dress swept the floor perfectly. I seriously recommend this dress to anyone who wants to be a showstopper; I got tons of compliments at prom. Just order down a size of you have a smaller bust!

Felt like a celebrity!
ADORED this dress!!! Fit is definitely true-to-size, and if anything the bust runs the slightest bit big. I had a padded strapless bra on which worked great, but the dress is a little heavy so I had to pull it up a few times. In person, the sequins aren't quite as sparkly as expected, but photograph really well. Originally ordered a 0 petite but it was unavailable, so I wore the 0R-- short girls will definitely need heels. Mine were nearly 6" and I had to hold the dress up when walking or taking stairs. Sounds like a lot to complain about, but honestly this dress was AMAZING! I got compliments ALL night and actually ran into another girl in an RTR dress (we saw each other at the same time, pointed at each other's dresses, and smiled) and she said that after seeing this dress in person she's ordering it immediately for her next event. I completely recommend it if you love to sparkle as much as me!

Flawless dress, perfect for event theme
The fit of the dress was perfect. It hugs perfectly my waist line. The sequences wasn't as bad as the other reviews, The dress didn't irritate me at all. The color of the dress and the shine went perfect with the theme of my prom night (Great gaptsy). However the zipper definitely was difficult, I am 5'3 and wore 3inch heals and the dress still hit the floor by 1 1/2 inches. So if you love a perfect hem and and short this dress might be a bit to long for you. But with higher heals this will work for sure. Overall the dress was perfect in every way and I was soo happy with my experience!

Again! Rent the Runway has made me look the most glamorous girl at prom! The gold matched my tan and my dark blonde hair so the color was very flattering. I also was showered in compliments all night and people still come up to me ask about that dress even after prom is over! Live love love this dress!!!

This dress made me feel like I was going to walk to red carpet! Everyone was looking at me all night
I wore this dress to my prom,2015. It's beautiful everyone wouldn't stop looking at me and complimenting me! I would totally order again. The material wasn't too heavy so it's comfortable throughout the night. I wAs so scared it wasn't going to fit me but RTR reassured me they would help me out.(it did fit though) Overall I was obsessed with the dress and it was easy to return as well! Thank you RTR for saving me money for prom and making me look gorgeous!

I was told that "I belonged at the oscars"
The dress was beautiful. It was a little heavy and scratched under my arms towards the end of the night but was definitely worth wearing! Got many compliments and it was definitely a show stopper. I wore 4" heels and the dress the perfect length. I was able to wear strapless bra underneath which to me is always a plus.
