I had an amazing dress for a lot less than it would have cost to own it. I felt fantastic in it!

It was true to size and comfortable the whole night. Zipper was a little difficult. I loved this dress!

Fit like a glove

It was so amazing. I felt so comfy and I usually dred wearing anything that looks like it would hug. This dress was so forgiving I could have gone a size down and still been ok it was so much stretch. Perfect dress for the girl who still has a shape with a bit of bulge that wont go away. ;0 I normally go a size up but it was so awesome my self esteem was through the roof. Wish I took pics.

Fun wedding

This dress definitely ran big, and had a lot of stretch. I would probably order a size down next time:) It was very comfortable and easy to dance in

gorgeous dress! I wore with spanx to conceal my tummy, but the draping is beautiful. It's very sexy without revealing too much. I ordered a size 4 and 6 and went with the 6 - my only complaint is that the zipper was SO hard to get down. I thought I was going to rip the dress I had to tug on it so much. Overall it was a hit - perfect for an evening wedding.

The wedding was beautiful.

I was sent this dress because the dress I rented was damaged by the previous customer. I didn't even take a photo of this dress because I didn't like the look or fit. I received an email 15 minutes before I had to make a choice or they would just send one. The zipper was horrible, nothing stayed in place. I hope the next girl has better luck with this dress.

Beautiful dress and very comfortable. I rented this dress and another from RTR for an outdoor wedding. I decided to wear the other dress since this one was slightly fancier than I expected. I loved that the ruching hid some flaws, but the dress was tighter than I expected.

runs a little small but quite stretchy and forgiving. the neckline is very flattering. rouching hinds any imperfections around the tummy, and the draping provides a little coverage on your upper arms. A nice twist on the LBD.

Very thick fabric!

Normally I love Badgley Mischka but this dress didn't hit the mark for me - I liked the shoulder detailing but overall it felt too snug and the fabric was very thick and heavy, and it had a weird synthetic feel to it. Luckily it was just my backup dress and I didn't end up wearing it. Definitely not good for any sort of warm-weather event!

This dress, while pretty, offers no stretch at all and really doesn't hide many body flaws. You can see every line under the dress.

Stunning and chic LBD

I rented this dress for a formal charity event and it was perfect. Subtle off-the-shoulder style, well-placed jeweled broach -- these little touches make it much more than a basic black dress. Runs a little small, so size up.

Cute dress. I wish I ordered the right size.

I ended up returning this dress because it didn't fit. I gained 15 pounds this past year and have been wearing a size10 lately, but for some reason this dress didn't fit. Oh well, next time I'll get the next size up.

Classic... and, sexy!

Runs small - I sucked it in all night. Rent a size up, and then another size up - especially if you're sitting down to dinner as there's not much give. The size 0 arrived in pristine condition, not the 2. I was disappointed that there's a bead or two missing and the beads are discolored on the 2. The hem fell below the dress - that will need to be fixed. I'm also disappointed that I wasn't credited for that. Nevertheless, lots of compliments! An amazing dress.

Dress was high-quality overall, but the zipper was really hard even on the hanger. When I put on the 8, it was quite short (but okay for the event) but the bustline was just too tight and kind of flattened me out. The 10 fit, but was oddly several inches longer and felt more like a MOB dress - a little dowdy. Bummed, but so happy with RTR customer service!

Cute dress!

Zipper was very difficult to get up or down - gets stuck in the gathered fabric. Thought I was not going to be able to wear it, but my husband finally got the zipper up. Very comfortable and flattering. Not a showstopper, but perfect in a a conservative setting.

I got compliments all night on how great I looked in the dress and I felt sophisticated.

The dress fit well and I was glad I got a size 4 because the 2 was too snug.

Odd fit

I didn't hate this dress, but it just happened to fit my body weirdly. Maybe it was just me, but the bust and skirt was fine except that the lower torso was uncomfortably tight! I don't know why, I'm a pretty proportional person :(

This dress was too small.

I ordered this dress as a back up for my sisters bachelorette party in Chicago. Although I usually wear a size 14 I read the reviews and ordered a 12 since that was the largest size. I couldn't zip it over my hips. It's a pretty dress.

This was my first dress I rented from RTR and I was so happy with the entire process. My dress came in on time and was nicely packaged. I wore the dress to a black tie event, and I could not have been happier with the dress. I am normally between a size 0/2 but after looking at the sizing chart I ordered a 2 and 4. The 2 ended up fitting me like a glove, and the dress was so comfortable to wear. I love the off the shoulder and then the jeweled embellishment on the other shoulder. The length was perfect for the event and I think that I looked better in the dress than the model! I will be renting future dresses from RTR!

Adored this dress. I'm a bit hippy, so I went for the "size-up" order and it was fantastic. The fit of the bodice is genius; very flattering to a larger chest. The ruching at the waist an elegant way to disguise any bumps and unevenness in that area.

I la la loved this dress! I wore it to a funky yet classy November wedding and received many compliments. The size 0 was a perfect fit. It hit me just above the knee (I have a longer torso). It was very hard for me to send this one back!

Loved it! I wore this to a corporate function where I wanted to look chic and stylish, without worrying about showing too much skin. This was PERFECT! I'm usually between a 2 and a 4, and I wore the 4. Bonus: the liner is silky enough to keep the ruching moving around, rather than settling in unflattering clumps. I know this sounds minor, but I'm usually leary of jersey with ruching for this reason!

I'm a super-standard size 10 and this fit like a glove -- although if you're wearing it to a work event, maybe size up so it's a bit less closely fitted. In any case, really flattering and comfortable, although slightly shorter than I normally go.

Ordering was a breeze. My engagement pictures turned out amazing.

The fit was exactly how I expected. The stretch of the material is great, although the layers are a bit heavy for a summer day. I am a petite pear by definition, but the black was very slimming. It hit around the knee.

This dress made me feel amazing! I even did a little dance in front of the mirror when I had it on. (My stepmom asked if I could buy it, in fact.) Loved the fabric - which would take an army to wrinkle - and the rouching was slenderizing. Might have to rent again!

I wore this to a work related black tie affair. I'm 5'3", 113 lbs and and the size 2 hit just above the knee. I could have worn the size 0, which was a bit shorter and tighter, but since it was a work event, I wore the looser, longer dress. Still hugged me very nicely, similar to the model shown, only longer.

The dress looks great and fit perfectly. However, the zipper that runs from your chest to your thigh, split halfway through a wedding reception and I was forced to wear a trench coat for the rest of the evening. Wish the dress was better maintained.
