Overall the dress was great, the dress was true to size, the length perfect, the look was classy, but the only thing is the top of the dress fit loosely in the bust. It wasn't noticeable by other people but it was to me. It did not make me feel uncomfortable by any means. I am a 32A/B and there was a lot of room, a bigger bust would have fit perfectly.

Gorgeous Material and Fun To Wear!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered both the 10 and the 8. I ended up wearing the 8 because the full skirt was generous in my larger area. If you are bustier however I would suggest going with a bigger size. The 8 somewhat smashed my bust. I received a ton of compliments on this dress and it definitely stood out in a sea of the LBD's.

felt so great in this dress

Overall fit: True to Size

in my 50's and i am short. so it is hard to rent a dress without trying it on but i could see this would work. I always order minis because they fall to my knee or just above it. I also wear a waist cincher corset so it pulls a little more in at the middle (which is a problem at my age)... this makes my waist top hips a little slimmer. i don't have a big belly and the a plenty of room there. the poof is perfect . it hides hips and thighs. Bust was form fitting. . it was a day wedding but this was dressy and relaxed at the same time. I wore a vintage gold and ruby choker and strappy black sandals. I got a huge amount of compliments on Facebook and the party!

This dress made me feel like a movie star!

Overall fit: True to Size

Love, love, LOVE this dress! I wore it to an outdoor wedding in New Orleans in May so it was a little heavy for the event but I didn't care because I felt amazing in it! It fit perfectly and I didn't need any fashion tape or other adjustments. This dress was made for me! Be aware though, it exactly fits your waist so if you need a little breathing room, like if you're planning on eating a lot, order a size up. I really wanted to keep this dress. Also, this was my first experience with RTR and I will absolutely do it again!

Fabulous Dress for a Wedding in Summer or Fall!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I absolutely loved this dress and will seriously be purchasing it if it ever goes to RTR's sale section! The material is very high quality and the dress fits beautifully (even with a recent post baby tummy). I got so many compliments on how unique and flattering the dress was. It was super comfortable to wear to a warm outdoor LA wedding, but could also be warn for a fall wedding as well. My only comments on fit was that the 6 fit perfect outside of slightly tight in the chest, so I went up to the 8 which still fit wonderfully but didn't squish my chest in (I'm a 34D). It hit a few inches above my knees and I am 5'3" which was cute but not too short.

Beautiful, comfy, but... a little roomy in the bust for me.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Beautiful colors, wonderful fabric, and the full skirt allows for a lot of room to dance! I ordered a size 8 and 6 because it suggested to size down for your back-up. The 8 fit perfectly at the waist, but since I am very pear shaped... My bust did not fill out the top. I ended up wearing my push-up bra to try and decrease the noticeable amount of extra fabric on top; it was more noticeable when I was sitting. And, there was no way I would have been able to breath in the 6. I took one star off because Badgley Mischka apparently feels every one should be built like Scarlett Johansson. But, if you do have a tiny waist with a size C or better chest: go for this dress!! I got a lot of compliments, and I am sure I was the only one who noticed the extra room up top.

This dress flatters every body shape giving the illusion of a tiny waist. It's a bit snug in the chest are so if you are well endowed, I'd recommend going a size up. The dress can be worn with or without a bra since the fabric is pretty thick. Overall, very please with my first rental.

This dress fit true to size for me and flattered my hourglass figure. I tend to carry my weight in my hips and be small on top and this dress really evened me out and flattered my figure. The color of the fabric is a brighter blue than in the website pictures, but it is absolutely gorgeous. This was a comfortable dress and easy to wear for the 12 hours that had to.

Gorgeous dress, poofy skirt, very tight on waist, got lots of compliments!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was beautiful and I received many compliments throughout the night. I wore it to a night wedding in August and it was definitely appropriate for the occasion. With dresses that are A-line, I can usually pull off a 10 (or sometimes even an 8) because my waist is small (in comparison to my hips!) but this dress was very very fitted at the waist. The back-up size I would have wanted (12) wasn't available so I decided to risk renting it anyways without the back-up.. I wore the dress and it was fine, but I definitely would have been more comfortable in a 12. I paired it with the recommended necklace, Badgley Mischka Jewelry Crystal Cluster Necklace and it worked really well. I wore black peep toe pumps (not in the photo).

great dress - flattering & comfortable!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

A size 6 fit me perfectly, just snug enough to be flattering, but with plenty of room to move, breathe, and all the other essentials. Somewhat flared skirt accents waist. Material is lovely, very soft and silky. The pattern and color are both beautiful - subtle but with enough detail to make it interesting. I'd definitely recommend this dress!

The unbelievable dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a wedding and people were asking me where I got it all throughout the night. I usually wear a size 4 but they didn't have my size available so I risked it with a size 6 (I sometimes go a size up due to my chest). Surprisingly, the dress fit just right around the waist and was actually a little loose in the chest area (thought it was not terribly noticeable). I think a 4 might have been too tight around the waist for me. I'm just under 5'8" and the length was perfect. I love this dress!

The dress is just slightly longer than I wanted, but really pretty. It's true to size, but the torso is very fitted. My usual size fit well, but there was no room to spare in the torso! The fabric is very high quality and the print is unique and beautiful. I got lots of complements and was really bummed to have to send it back! Also, I took advantage of the mystery bling offer, and got a gorgeous Love Moschino clutch for a $15 rental. It looked perfect with the dress and it was super fun to have a surprise item arrive with the dress! RTR is awesome.

Very unique dress, Very comfortable!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this dress for a rustic wedding at a flower farm. My usual size is a 4, and I ordered the 6 as a backup. I wish I had the size 2 to try on, as the 4 had a good amount of room. I did not even bother trying on the 6. I used a gold belt on the dress to give it some shape, rented the Alexis Bittar Silver Lining Link Necklace, and wore nude pumps and a nude/patterned clutch. Overall the dress was very comfortable and unique as it has a animal print sheen to it. The sheen is dark enough that you could maybe pair it with black shoes or belt if needed. The weather was uncharacteristically chilly, so I added a white/gold sweater for the outside portions of the wedding. The only cons to this dress is that if it is windy, it may blow upwards.

Great color, silver sparkle, subtle RAWR

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This is a beautiful dress -- lovely navy blue color with really subtle cheetah print and gorgeous silver detail on the bottom. I rented sizes 6 and 8 and it turns out I was in between sizes. The 8 was too baggy on top and the arm holes were too large, so I went with the 6 which was very tight across the bust and created an unfortunate "uni-boob" effect. Ultimately, tighter looked better than baggier. In any case, the dress was still beautiful, I still got TONS of compliments, the length was great (I'm 5'2") and it was a fun party dress. The fabric is really high quality. The skirt has a fair amount of "foof out," which I liked, but it might be too "foofy" for some. Great dress for lots of occasions. I also rented the Nicole Miller silver "Southern Plantation" earrings to go with it and they were the perfect compliment.

Beautiful dress, very fun and elegant

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Loved this dress and got compliments. I was wondering if the flowers on the dress were going to be gold or silver because I had seen other reviewers describe them as both. They are really an in between color, and will go with either gold or silver accessories. I wore it with gold accessories and nude/beige shoes. If you are going to have trouble with the fit of this dress it will probably be the top. I found the top to be a little too big around the shoulders, even when I wore the smaller of my two selected sizes. The dress is tighter around the bust but larger in the shoulders. Probably difficult to fit perfectly for a lot of body types. Both the 8 and the 10 fit but the 10 was really too big on top and you could see the edge of my bra through the arm hole. The 8 was still a little gappy and I was going to try to fix it with fashion tape. But I ran out of time trying to get the fashion tape right and ultimately I think it was fine to wear as it was.

This dress was so much fun to wear. It is fitted through the bust and torso, and then flairs at the waist. I received so many compliments on this dress, both the night of the event and now, a week later! The size 6 fit like a glove--I'm 5'3" with an athletic build. The metallic in the skirt is more bronze, so accessories can be silver or gold.

Great dress for an outdoor wedding in Cali. I wore one size up from my typical size because the waist was a little tight for me. The size 10 skirt seems to have shrank a tiny bit in the back so it threatened to show the lining, but no one would have noticed but me.

Classy and unique. A bit large in the chest.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was exactly what I expected and was a lot of fun. Very classic/classy looking, but the metallic floral combined with the faux animal print made it unique. It was a bit loose in the chest but fit nicely everywhere else. I am a B cup, so this might be a good choice for someone with slightly a larger chest / skinnier waist, so long as they aren't too well endowed as the fabric doesn't give much.

Loved this cocktail dress! The skirt is full, yet figure flattering!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Fit was (mostly) true to size. I debated between the 2 and 4. I went with the 2 ultimately because it was a little more snug in the torso/bust area. What's better is that usually a dress of this style is too short for me to wear, but I was very comfortable with the length!
