Gorgeous!
This is really an amazing black gown. The bust area had boning for support and the straps can be adjusted however you feel most comfortable. It really flatters the figure as well. Definitely the perfect black tie choice!

The dress was absolutely perfect for the event & I wasn't there 5 mins before getting 3 compliments!
I am a 12 with medium bust and it fit like a glove. I don't always like fully strapless gowns and had worn one shoulder dresses with these friends on our recent cruise, so I didn't want to repeat that look. Though this was a variation, the straps made it so elegant. They slipped a bit here and ther, but weren't annoying or distracting. I am a bit over 5'6" and had 4 inch heels and had the 12L and it was a little too long for me, but added to the column aspect of the look. The black and the draping was very forgiving for my 44 year old tummy. Over all, I felt confident, elegant, appropriate and stylish in this gown!

Flawless cut, flawless fit.
It flattered beautifully, and the interesting straps added just enough style to take the dress from simple to elegant.

Great dress, when you need a formal dress with some stretch.
The dress fit nicely and hid all of my flaws that come with it being the middle of the winter. It was very comfortable. I am 5'6 and was able to wear 3 inch heels with the regular length dress. Plenty of room for the girls and lots of stretch. Although, there were times that I was annoyed with the strap that goes around the neck.

Good dress if you want something simple and black
This dress is extremely long. I am 5'5 and was stepping all over the bottom w 3 inch heels. The dress was a heavier material so good for a winter function. This dress was pretty, but I didn't love it. I wasn't sad to send it back.

Great dress, good quality, but ran large.
The material for this dress is thick but smooth. I loved the way the straps fell on my shoulders, and that it hugged my curves. I typically wear a 4 or 6 in dresses, but the 4 was too big on me - it just kept falling right off! I'd opt for a size (or maybe even two sizes) down. I ended up going with my second backup dress because I ordered a 4 and 6 for this dress.

The conga line on the dance floor.
Lovely, comfortable dress. The material is stretchy and forgiving. I couldn't figure out how to get the sleeves right until I pulled up the picture again, and the sleeve had a habit of falling a bit. Minor inconvenience. Would definitely recommend.

Loved this dress! Super flattering, dramatic and unique.
It is very long so you have to wear big heels. It is stretchy so you have a little wiggle room for the tummy area

Skinnified!
The drape in the front was a little distracting for photos. The dress was definitely well worn which is probably why it seemed to run large. The boning was also popping through the lining on left chest side which was slightly uncomfortable. All in all- perfect for the event I went to, and it was exactly what I expected.... a long black dress that made me look skinny :-) I kept hearing how "classy" this gown was.

unforgettable dress
I originally order the size 2 as a back up for my size 4 since I bounce off the two, the 4 fit but the top sagged the 2 fit perfect to form. The dress was beautiful got compliments on it all night. The material was a little heavy for a south florida wedding.

Hollywood glamour!
This dress is beautiful and high quality! I got tons of compliments. Everyone kept calling me Hollywood. One guy asked where I got it and I told him it was a rental and he said to go buy it immediately. Straps fall down a bit but that didn't bother me, but if you don't want to fuss with them it may not be your thing. The long was perfect with 4 inch heels. Very comfortable and easy to dance in. Great experience with RTR and I'll definitely rent again!

Hard to see in pictures but the front has a long draped piece great for hiding midsections. That just was not my intention for this event. But it is beautiful and fit very well.

Gorgeous dress- as with most badgley mischka, it runs pretty long, so i'd say a Regular versus Long will work best for most people!

Easy delivery and return! Great costumer service. I was sent this as a backup dress.
Didn't end up wearing. Received the 2R as the 0R was out of stock. Wasn't even close to a fit but the style was really pretty and the draping would be flattering in the right size!

I felt beautiful in this dress and got several compliments throughout the night :)
I am a size 4 in dresses but the 6 fit ok... slightly big but with this dress it didn't matter. It was a tad long and the straps were a bit loose but I am very narrow in my shoulders. The straps were more difficult than anticipated...make sure you have a little help getting into it;) Over all, I loved this dress. I was able to move comfortably and dance all night!

Beyond basic black. LOVED everything about this dress!
This is my favorite rental to date! It ran a little big as I feel I should probably be in an 8 right now, but I wore the 6 with no problems. In addition to being just a stunning gown it was also comfortable and flattering. I got tons of compliments! I would have given this dress a 5 if it had not been for the white marks that were all over it when it arrived. I spent quite a bit of time cleaning the gown up before I could wear it.

I didn't get to wear this dress because I liked my backup dress better
I ordered this dress for a formal affair and I also ordered a backup dress. I tried this dress on and it fits true to size however, I liked the backup dress I ordered better so I never wore this one. The backup dress was more elegant than this one.

Wore this dress for my maternity photo-shoot, 7 months pregnant. It was comfortable and elegant. Can't wait to rent when I'm back to my regular size.

Hi! I'm debating this dress and I'll be 8 months pregnant when I wear it. I think our body types are the same - are your measurements listed here what you were at 7 months pregnant, or pre-pregnancy? It looks amazing on you! Thanks so much!

Definitely had the best dress of the night!
It runs short, which is saying something since I'm only about 5'4. I wore a size up from my regular size because I'm curvy.

A comfortable, simple and flattering dress with understated and effortless style built right in!
Fit true to size. Fabric was thick with a nice heavy duty stretch. The dress itself is pretty simple, but the straps give it so much effortless style and sophistication. I love that the dress allows you to make it your own with the right accessories, hair and makeup. I'm pretty sure this dress would look good on many body types since the silhouette hits you in all the right places while masking any trouble areas. I received tons of compliments all night and would definite rent again!!

Lovely Dress!
I wore this dress to my corporate Christmas party at 8 months pregnant! Usually, I am a size 8, but I got a 12L because I was in my third trimester. Some people have told me that because of my height I do carry smaller so that may be a reason I fit in it this late in the game lol. The dress showed off my baby bump beautifully and my waist line (from the back of course). At first I was so nervous to wear it, and it was a little hard to zip without help, but I received so many compliments from men and women that night! Great dress and it flatters pregnancy!

Stunning evening dress, slimming, and comfortable
I wore this dress to a January wedding. I would say I usually fit a dress size 2, but the 0 was much better fitting. I'm 5'2" and wore 4 in heels and the dress was only about an inch too long. The dress material is a little thicker, and it hugs your curves nicely. The straps were just as the model in the picture at the beginning of the night, but as the night went on they stretch just a bit, and didn't stay at the top of my shoulder. Received many compliments, and recommend this dress for a formal occasion.

This dress was perfect for the Grammy Awards.
I ordered a 6R and the 8R as a backup. For some reason they both fit through the bodice the same but the 8 was much shorter than the 6R. So I ended up with the 8R even though it was a little larger in the chest area. The dress is very heavy. I had to tape the straps to my body so they would't fall, but overall the dress was beautiful and I received a lot of compliments.

Did not wear the dress - ran far too large
The dress straps were beautiful but extremely heavy and not tight enough to hold up on the shoulders. Simply trying the dress on at home and they kept falling. Beautiful otherwise but wish I would have ordered one size smaller.

Gorgeous dress!! Needed "floor length black" to be a bridesmaid - it was perfect!
Fit is absolutely true to size, and the material is very flattering. Some stretch to make the fit perfect and dancing comfortable, but its heavy enough to not ride up or scrunch. However, since the fabric is a little heavy, it does pull the corner down where the fringe-thing attaches. Not a big deal - I used a little fashion tape and it was pretty unnoticeable (I think if you're bigger busted it wouldn't be a problem at all). Length is good - always tricky for me at 5'6.5" to be right in between regular and long. I went with regular and my shoes showed some with 3" heels. The ONLY thing that keeps this dress from being 5 stars is the straps. While they are so flattering and amazingly beautiful, they are SO CONFUSING. I had to have a friend help me. And then, once the dress is on, you can't really lift your right arm due to the lowest strap on the arm. I just toasted with my left hand, but it got annoying on the dance floor.

Perfect for a black tie event.
The dress itself is fairly heavy and since mine was a bit too large it was falling down all night. It was a beautiful dress but I should have gone a size smaller.
