Very flattering
I love this dress. The mermaid style is so flattering, the fabric hangs beautifully, and the dress is very comfortable. The 2R was too long for me to wear even with 6 inch heels, so I went with another dress, but I would consider renting this again in a petite length.

Green Perfection!
Perfectly form fitting, this dress allows enough room to move while still hugging all of the perfect curves! The bottom flares out just enough to make it movable without taking away any structure. You can wear a normal bra with it which is great. It is on the heavier side so I would not recommend this for summer. Overall I love it and would wear again!

Nothing short than amazing!
I rented this dress for a very close friends wedding and I can't even tell you how many complements I got on it all night.. And I thought I was over dressed! It was a hit! It was super comfortable. I originally ordered a 4R.. And it was way too short for my 5.5 in heels. So they overnight shipped me a 4L and it was perfect. I felt like I was on the red carpet. It was amazing! I'm so happy I picked it. I really turned heads.

NYE wedding
Thank goodness for backup sizes! The size up still wasn't the best fit but it worked. The length was short -- I'm 5'5" and it barely hit the ground with flats on. The dress was gorgeous and I received a lot of compliments but I think the fit could have been better.

Comfortable and confident!
This dress was one of the most beautiful things I have ever worn. I ordered an 18WL and a 20WL as a backup. The 18 fit well, but the skirt was slightly tight on my hips. Moving up to the 20 worked perfectly! Aesthetically, the dress was amazing. The color and the sequins earned me compliments all night, the train was elegant and fun to have while dancing, and the fit and weight of the fabric allowed me comfort while still letting me feel secure in areas of which I am normally a bit self-conscious. My only complaint would be the scratching that occurred from the sequins on the side of the dress. The undersides of my biceps were considerably scratched after a day at the ceremony and the reception. It was definitely uncomfortable, but not something unexpected (I have worn similar sequined dresses before and experienced the same thing). This dress was amazing, as was RTR's service. I will most definitely be renting again.

I LOVED this dress!!
This dress was an amazing choice for a winter ball. The fit was perfect and hugged me in all the right places. The dress complemented my curves in every way. The only negative thing about the dress is that it did scratch my arms from all of the sequence. I would recommend this dress to anyone!!

Fast shipping, great fit
This was my first RTR experience, and it went very well. I needed to rent a gown on short notice that was appropriate for a Black Tie gala which I was working. I was able to order this one through the app on Thursday, and it was delivered by 11am Saturday. I chose this gown based on the classy appearance; since it was a work event, I was looking for a gown with a higher neckline (avoiding cleavage incidents) and long enough that I could wear flats for running around without anyone noticing! This dress fit those needs perfectly, plus it's surprisingly forgiving of body imperfections for something that's literally got green sequins flashing across your backside. I had ordered both the 14R (my usual size for formalwear) and the 16R, for in case the bust was too tight. The 14R worked perfectly, with good room for curves through the hip/thigh area. You definitely need a buddy to help with the zipper regardless of the size, as the sequins make it a challenge to move it up and down. I was also pleasantly surprised that I could manage to go without a bra (it's snug enough just below the bust for this to work), and I was reasonably comfortable in the dress for the 10+ hours I wore it. I really didn't notice the issue some other reviewers mentioned about the sequins rubbing under my arms. I will definitely be coming back to RTR for future events. TL;DR- Fits true to size, is comfortable, R length works with flats or heels on a 5'6 frame, bra optional.

I wore this to the Emmys... Fun!
The zipper is tricky to get up and down, even when on the hangar. Overall, I loved wearing this gown. I'm glad I didn't wear nylons, as I'm pretty sure the sequins at the bottom would've snagged them. The flair at the base made it a fun gown to wear!

Stunning and comfortable
After recently losing about 100lbs I rented this dress for a formal wedding in June! I cannot talk this dress up enough! I received compliments from total strangers and it made me feel so beautiful! I loved that I could wear a normal bra with it, too! The ONLY complaint I have is that the sequence rubbed a little on the underside of my upper arms. But nothing I couldn't handle. A little body glide would have done the trick. I am 5'3" and wore 3 inch heels and it was the perfect length. Would definitely rent this one again!!

Wedding outfit to die for
I have a large bust for my smaller waist so finding a dress that fits both is often difficult. This dress was great! I wore a regular bra and received so many compliments. It was a bit long so higher heels were necessary but I think it made the look more dramatic. I loved it! I could have worn the 10 but it was a little too tight in the bust area.

This dress is a showstopper!! I must've received 20+ compliments on it throughout the night and most importantly- I felt AMAZING in this dress. It hugs in all the right places and was actually quite comfortable to wear. A huge plus is that you can wear a normal bra with it. I am 5'3, 105 pounds, wear a 34C and the size 0R fit perfectly with a higher heel (3-4 in).

Gorgeous gown
Oh, this dress is so pretty! It's got great movement, color, and sparkle. It's also comfortable to wear and true to size while still being flattering (hugs the body nicely with no weird bulges or squeezing.) If you like your arms & shoulders, this is a nice one to wear, as it shows them off. Unfortunately, I forgot to get pictures while wearing it, but it definitely looked stunning and I will likely rent it again for other formal affairs.

This dress is everything. It does run big and its stretchy as I had just had a baby 9 weeks prior to my event and was able to go down a size. The length was perfect for 4 inch heels. I had countless compliments all night. Sad to return!

Beautiful Emerald Gown
This dress is beautiful and comfortable, Another dress became available on unlimited that I think I will like more for the particular event I'm attending but you can not go wrong with this beautiful gown. It stands out in a crowd and you could wear this all night and be comfortable. I'm 5'6" and it just barely hit the ground in flats so if you're tall or planning on wearing heels get the long for sure but even without heel this dress accentuates all the right parts of your body and would be perfect for any event.

My first RTR did not disappoint!
Loved this dress it was prefect for the evening wedding reception in Hollywood. I felt like the dress fit exactly like it should have, I did think the regular was going to be a bit longer so I wore shorter heels then I would normally wear. I got the size up as a back up and didn't feel the need to try it on as the 12 fit perfectly. I got so many complements and felt totally glam.

Perfect for senior prom--comfortable and unique.
The fabric was pretty heavy, but it wasn't too hot. The sequins didn't scratch me at all. The black parts didn't look weird like I was a little worried they might. It flares beautifully, I got requests from people to spin so they could see.

Really flattering, and the color blocking around the waist is a nice touch. It was a little long, but I didn't have too much trouble navigating. I love the sparkles and stood out at a Mardi Gras ball

I loved this dress, but it was a little too big!
I wore this dress to an orchestra in LA, and it was definitely a show stopper. My only problem was that it was too big around the waist, and waaaay too long. I wore about 4 or 5 inch heels, and it was still dragging on the ground while I walked. The dress was kinda heavy, but the sequins were super beautiful and made me feel gorgeous all night.

Perfect Prom Night
This dress is amazing! If your thinking about renting just get it. I wore this for my junior prom and it was beautiful. It fit perfectly. The only con was I'm 5ft 4 and I could not wear heels with this dress because it would have been too short. I received so many compliments on how gorgeous the dress was. I'm so sad to have to send it back.

Dress was GORGEOUS
I cannot say enough about RTR.... I rented this dress at pretty close to the last minute, and both the dress and the backup dress were too small. My consultant overnighted me two dresses in the next two sizes up, and the next size up was PERFECT. This dress was the hands-down hit of the graduation night party that I was attending and I felt like a princess!!!

I got this for a black tie wedding.
The dress fit, I typically wear a size 10/12. However, my bust is a DD and the cut of the dress was very unflattering. This was my first experience with RTR and they were extremely accommodating with letting me return the dress and overnighting me a new one. The customer service rep stayed on the phone with me for 45min going through dresses that were available and that had good reviews for my body type.

Can't wait for another excuse to rent this dress!
I got tired of reading this in reviews but..I loved this dress!! I think it runs true to size for Badgley Mischka dresses, I ordered the 2L and 4L, and the 2L fit perfectly. I typically wear flats, but this dress was long enough that I could've worn heels and been fine, which is important at my height! I wore this to a black tie wine dinner and auction and got many compliments, someone even said I had "hands down the best dress at the event." I didn't want to take it off at the end of the night, I looked up every way possible to buy this dress from the company. The color is not as bright as the picture, I was worried it would be "too green" but it was a nice emerald color. The sequins give the dress some weight, which helped keep me warm since the dress had no sleeves. I could go on and on, but you should definitely rent this dress!

This gown fit like a dream. The only downfall was the irritation on my inner arms caused by hours of contact with the sequins. I absolutely loved this gown.

Beautiful dress that made me feel glamorous!
Fit perfectly. I am 5' 2", 122 pounds. Was worried about the length but with 3" Jimmy Choos it fit like it was made for me. Loads of complements all night! Cons: Busy wedding with a train = people step on you Remember to lift the front when walking up and down stairs! Heavy dress = more sweat post dancing

This dress is FANTASTIC! Perfect for a gala
I ordered this dress in a 2R and in a 0R based on the reviews I saw online. The dress runs true to size, and both fit me well, but I went with the 2R because I had a little more wiggle room. I recommend you have a friend help you zip it up, it is difficult to do so by yourself. I wore the dress to a gala, and it did not disappoint. I could dance in it, and most importantly, I was able to move around with ease. Given the design of the dress, I could also wear a regular bra (huge plus in my book!). Lastly, the length of the dress is long -- I wore 3" heels and the dress still reached the floor! If I ever need an evening gown, I'll be looking for this dress/ this designer again. Thanks RTR!

It was absolutely wonderful. I received a lot of compliments.
The front of the dress is cut a little higher then the back that prevented me to wear heels with the dress. I wore flats with the dress and they could not be seen. The dress glided on the floor with the train being just the right length so I could move easily. Overall the dress was beautiful.
