Great dress. Wrong size

I rented this dress for a formal event. Beautiful dress but the sizing I ordered was too small. I typically wear a size 6 or 8 in this designer but this dress does run small. I have a bigger chest and broad shoulders- so the bigger size would have been more accommodating to my proportions although the size 8 did fit well everywhere else. RTR was very accommodating in getting me a replacement dress since the 10 was not available. Customer service at its best.

N/A

The dress runs really big. The sleeves were super long and the dress was way longer than it looked in the picture (down to the knee). Unfortunately I couldn't wear it to my event. I am usually a size 6 but was sewing get in this size 6. Bummed but was happy with the service so will try again sometime.

Gorgeous and great fit

Overall I loved this dress! Fit: this dress did run small I almost always wear the 10, and can sometimes wear an 8, but I had to do a 12 in this style. Definitely recommend to size up for your backup. The material is beautiful and it was perfect for a holiday party. I liked that it wasn't stuff, so it kind of drapes your shape but doesn't make you look body. The only issue I had was that since I sized up there was extra material in the neck which created the fabric to roll over which you couldn't tell because my hair was down but would have looked bad if I did an undo. This could have been due to my chest though since I am full in this area. Color: this dress is more of a nude color in real life. The sparkles have a gold. Paired with: this dress didn't need a lot of bells and whistles. Cute gold earrings and clutch with nude heels. I wouldn't wear a necklace nor would I wear silver or white gold jewelry...go with rose gold or gold. Will likely rent from Badgely mischka again.

The dress was amazing. I wore it to a Christmas party in NYC and was happy with my choice.

The fit was good. I wasn't truly happy with slip under the dress as it showed and I felt as though I had to keep pulling down the dress part to match it up. I rented a size 6 due to the fact that a 4 or 8 wasn't available and lucked out it fit.

Stunning!

Beautiful dress! I received compliments all night long. I usually wear an 8 but ordered a 10 based on the other reviews. It was loose in my chest and shoulders but almost too tight in my hips. You couldn't tell by looking at it and I was still able to dance!

This dress is beyond gorgeous! It does run small, I usually wear a 4 and the 6 was perfect. So many compliments and I felt like a million bucks! I recommend this dress 100 times over!

Short and sparkly

This dress is absolutely beautiful! More champagne than the cream that appears in the picture. BUT it runs small. I normally wear a 10, seldom a 12. I wore the 12, and even it was tight. It is lined, do that may be part of it. Plus, it's short. I'm 5'4". It showed my Spanx when I sat down, so I had to do some adjusting. All that being said, it really is a stunning dress! Just order up!

Loved this sequins dress!

I ordered the dress pretty late, and there was only size 6 left. I had to add a belt to the sheath since it ran large. Other than that I enjoyed the dress. The only problem is that it's a very popular dress worn by a lot of people, and there are minor detects here and there on the sleeves and the sequins. I wish it's newer.

Didn't end up wearing. The sleeves felt too ridiculous!

On the model the sleeves hit and fit right around her forearm. However, my dress that was sent was stretched so badly that the arms looked like I was trying to be Princess Jasmine. Didn't end up wearing to my rehearsal dinner.

Ordered for a Christmas party, but there was no stretch over my tummy. So I was going to be right and not appropriate for my event. Wanted a loose dress, this wasn't it.

I have rented this color once and the navy color twice, this dress is AMAZINGGG. So many compliments and extremely comfortable. I love this dress and wish I owned it. It can be tight in the hips and shoulders but other than that it's a stunner!

LOVED the dress. I wish I had ordered my size and a size below rather than a size above. It hit right above the knees, and I wanted it to be slightly shorter. Because it was a little large, the zipper caused a strange problem in the back where it humped up a bit when I wasn't sitting or standing perfectly straight. Just a word to the wise short gals out there. Tons of compliments and very easy to move in.

I sized down for this- normally wear a 6, but liked the tighter fit of the 4. This dress is beautiful and delicate. I wore it to the black tie Commandant's Marine Corps ball and was one of the few shorter dresses in the crowd, but had several comments including an entire table that was oohing and aahing the dress and asking where I got it! I thought the length was great- not so long that you felt conservative and when I sat it showed some leg which is nice. Very elegant and beautiful! A nice change of pace in a sea of long formal gowns.

I loved this dress! I rented it for a friend's birthday party and received many compliments on it throughout the night. Regarding fit, it seemed to run a little large. I am usually a small 4 and ordered both the 4 and backup size 2. I ended up wearing the 2 which fit perfect (but still plenty of room) and was still not too short for how tall I am. I highly recommend this dress!

Beautiful dress

I LOVED this dress. Wore it to a ball and was complimented on it all night. To me, in the picture it appeared to be a pink/champagne color, but in reality the sheath was nude and the beading was copper and bronze, with tiny bits of silver. I ended up wearing the smaller size as it is definitely roomy in the stomach area. This dress was a huge hit-- it is truly gorgeous!

I LOVED this dress! I wore it to a black-tie auction, and I couldn’t tell you how many compliments I received. It is very high-fashion and sexy, but also extremely comfortable! I will say, however, that this dress runs big. I ordered my usual size, and one size down as my 2nd dress. I ended up wearing the smaller size, and it was still big on me. Don’t get me wrong, the dress still looked adorable, even a little big, but I would have liked it a bit tighter. Especially for all of your small-chested ladies, like me, order a size down! Overall, LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this dress! Enough that I am actually writing a review, which I never do on things like this.

Love this dress. I am usually a 4 and ordered both the 4 and the 2 because of what I read in the reviews. I wore the 2- it was perfect. I loved the length and fit. I received SO many compliments- great on blondes. This dress is conservative enough for a Black Tie event but also snug and short enough to still be sexy. Thanks, RTR!

The dress arrived and looked good though a bit worn. Strings hanging and some of the embellishments missing. On the hanger it looked fine but when I put it on, I noticed there was a rip on the seem where the left sleeve met the bodice. Even without the rip I would not have worn it due to the condition. It was clearly a beautiful dress, but not after multiple rentals.I contacted RTR and heard back initially but have not received any follow-up regarding resolution. I did rent a different dress also and it was beautiful and fit perfectly.

Maybe the dress I received was a little stretched out, but the size 4 was bigger than expected and had plenty of extra room. If the dress had been mine to keep, I would have had it hemmed shorter (hit me right above the knee) and had it taken in along each side. I was afraid the color would be wrong for me, but it really worked well against my skin tone. The sleeves were a nice touch and I didn't find them itching or annoying. Received plenty of compliments throughout the night and this dress made getting dressed quite easy!

Gorgeous dress that lays perfectly on the body. Does run a little big so make sure you get a smaller back-up size. The lightweight fabric keeps the dress from being too heavy with all the adornment. Elastic on the arms is a bit itchy but nothing you can't handle for one night. Length was perfect-hit mid-thigh.

Best moment: when people asked to take a photo with me because I looked "like a celebrity"!

This is a beautiful dress; it has a lot more sequins than the picture shows, and they seem more bronze (rather than gold) in-person. Perfect length, but got the 0 and it was still quite large-- if possible, rent a size smaller (or pin it, like I did). Got tons of compliments all night!

This dress is truly beautiful. I would recommend getting at least one size smaller as the dress was a little big and looked more flattering in a smaller size. Classy enough for most events yet still sexy. Great dress!

Loved the dress. Runs bigger than I had expected. I always get a 4 and 6 to choose from and usually end up wearing the 6 and I wore the 4 in this dress with plenty of room to spare. I could have gone with a 2.

I normally wear a 6, although in Ann Taylor I'm a 4. Based on other's feedback, I ordered a 6 with a 4 for backup. I'm not curvy, I'm pretty slim (as long as Spanx is controlling my post-3 kids abdomen!) When it arrived, I was swimming in the 4! So big, it was like a muu muu. Ridiculous. I had to call in, they couldn't send me any new dress in time for my Monday event, and I had to go get my own dress at the last minute. Definitely order this smaller than you think.

My order was extremely disappointing. I ordered a size 2, with a 0 as my backup size based on the reviews here that recommended ordering a size smaller than what you normally wear. I am normally a 2 or a 4 in most dresses. This dress not only didn't fit, but it was in poor condition. The 2 slid around on the collarbone area and was slightly baggy, and the slip stuck out from the bottom of the dress. It didn't align properly at all and there was nothing I could do about it. A sequin fell off as I took the dress out of the garment bag, and there was a small tear on the left side of the dress, along one of the seams. The size 0 was worse because it was actually grey. It was not the color pictured here at all, and it was not the same color as the size 2, either. It had obviously been to the cleaners way too many times, and I was appalled that Rent the Runway was actually offering it to customers with the assumption that someone, somewhere, would wear it. Also: the sleeves of this dress are sheer, which you absolutely cannot tell from the online photograph. The sequins are very cheap-looking. All in all, a highly disappointing rental.

I'm just under 5'3" and about 125 pounds. Both the 4 and the 6 were way too big on me; probably would have needed a 2. It also looked longer than on model - the dress came down to the knees and the sleeves to the wrist (which I didn't mind, except that the whole thing was so loose it gave me no shape). It looks like the elastic in the sleeves was shot, so it did not gather the way it does in the picture. One of them showed some signs of wear, not bad, except the inside slip hung down below the dress and would have needed to have been tacked or hemmed so as not to be exposed. It was a pretty dress and I was excited to wear it, but it just did not work for me.
