Perfect for a Beachy Wedding!
This was my back-up dress because I wasn't sure if the color was going to be flattering with my medium brown skin tone, but it was just lovely. The coral color was perfect for the very formal but Palm Beach vibe of the event: young, fresh, but not cheap. The only issue was that the bra cup liners were missing (which meant the boning sort of visibly stuck out) but it wasn't that uncomfortable.

was it easy to dance in this dress and did it stay up or were you pulling it up all night? I'm not very busty so I don't want to pull it up every minute. I usually wear a 2 or a 4, and I'm 5'8 about 130 lbs.
RTRJuly 10, 2012
Hi Sara, this dress is pretty secure around the bust so you should not have to adjust the top throughout the night. We recommend your true size and one size up for the back up as the dress is fitted.
jessicaJuly 27, 2012
I am barely 5'1", will this be dragging on the floor?? Help!
RTRJuly 30, 2012
Hi Jessica, the regular length measures 58'' from shoulder to hem. This style can work for you as long as you wear a 3.5"+ heel.

The dress came on time, fit perfectly and I didn't have to worry about anything! Will definitely be using RTR again!
I loved this dress! I ordered a size 6L and size 4L because I'm usually in between sizes and the 4L was snug but fit perfectly. The dress looks reddish online but was more of a coral color when I got it. Either way, it was gorgeous! I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone! I'm 5'11'' and the length was perfect with a low heel!

This dress was beautiful, I could dance in it and move around with ease!
All those adjectives were used and MORE when describing my dress. I attended a formal wedding and this dress was PERFECT! I paired the dress with the Teardrop Pearl Earrings by Nicole Miller and the Gold Scalloped Bangle Set by RJ Graziano. The color is definitely a more deep coral, but beautiful nonetheless. If you have a bigger bust, I would suggest sizing up. I did not wear a bra (there are inserts) because my boyfriend was terrified of ripping the zipper in that area. I also leveraged temporary hem tape as the length was great with heels, but when I switched to flats I did not want to risk damaging the hem by stepping in the dress or worry about having to hold it up all night. All in all another successful rental from RTR!

Fablous dress! Many compliments!
I rented this dress for a beach wedding--it was perfect! Fit like a glove! The extra length was perfect with heels--I sometimes have trouble with "long" styles still being too short, but this was perfect! I also rented the necklace they show on the model--great accent! I received many compliments. Thank you RTR! Another successful rental!

I walked into the lobby where all the groomsman were and heard one guy say "wow, she's hot!" :)
I rented this dress last minute for a friends wedding. I was a bit skeptical at 1st since this was my 1st Rent the runway rental but I am sooo glad I did! Everyone loved the dress. I do not remember ever having soo many people tell me how beautiful I looked since my own wedding day! My husband could not keep his hands off me! The only thing I would recommend if you rent this dress is to purchase those non-permanent hem tapes as this dress is not hemmed in the bottom. Otherwise thanks for a great dress. I look forward to renting from here again!

"You're the 2nd prettiest girl at this wedding tonight!!" -Father of the Bride at the Wedding
This dress is sooo classic..you truly won't go wrong with it. The gentle and tasteful rouching accentuates and hides in all the right places and I love it! there are little slits in the bra in case you have some bra inserts you want to add for some added oomph in the cleavage area...the slit is sexy and tasteful. There isn't a bad thing I have to say about this dress at all..It fits true to size- I ordered the 4 and its pretty long with is great fot the sexy yet classy look I went for. I wore a 5inch heel with it and still it covered the shoe with just the peeking thru the slit as I walked! The dress is a winner!

so pretty but a fail for me
i really thought this dress was pretty. it was true to size however was way too long so i couldn't wear it; even with my tallest shoes it dragged.. wah... if you are a taller girl you will be ok. I'm 5'3 by the way. Also, the color is more of a sorbet orangey coral.. it isnt as dark as it is in the picture. I think it would really be great for someone's prom.. it will work for a very formal wedding as well.

This dress fit perfectly, hugged me in all the right spots. I'm small in the chest area but it definitely made me look like I had some shape! Very sexy :D

We had to have the dress shipped to our hotel in New York for the wedding. We were in a crunch for time and RTR managed to get us both of our dresses without any glitches! We will definitely be using RTR again!
This dress was absolutely perfect. It runs true to size, and was extremely comfortable. The material of the dress allowed me to dance comfortably all night! It hugged all the right places!!

Beautiful dress. I am just over 5ft. tall and it was certainly about 4 or 5 inches too long, even with heels! I used double sided tape and it worked pretty well. Other than the length it fit like a glove

BEWARE if you're busty
I am a 34D and found the top of the gown more revealing than I wanted. This is a "problem" I face with strapless dresses. I still wore the gown and had a great time at my black-tie event!

Compliments all night! And comfortable! A real winner!
This dress fits like a glove! I was worried about pulling up the top all night and the length being too long (based on other reviews) but neither were true! I built in bra was perfect and stayed put even while dancing. The best part, this dress so comfortable - even after wearing all day at a long wedding! I was worried about the length, but with 3 inch heels the dress skimmed the floor. The leg slit was the perfect height also. RTR was fantastic to work with and I would recommend this dress to anyone looking to wow and remain comfortable!

Loved the dress - didn't work for me
I was bummed this dress did not work out for me. The size I needed was unavailable, if I would have been able to order the correct size I think I would have loved this dress. The color is nice, the material is a little thin which makes me think it's more of a summer-spring dress.

Gorgeous Dress
I rented this dress for a black tie wedding. It was my first time renting from Rent The Runway and I was afraid the dress wouldn't fit (either to long or too tight) based on the reviews. I generally wear a size 2 (I am 5'4' and 110 lbs)....and the dress fit PERFECTLY. It was long, but touched the ground just slightly with high-heels. The color is beautiful...a rich orange/coral and pairs well with gold. Love the dress and I can honestly say I am a forever customer!

Everyone was wearing black, and this color made me stand out in a positive way!
I really loved this dress, so I took my chances renting the size 0. I had worn other Nicole Miller dresses before, and I knew they run a bit large. The length was perfect for me with platform heels. The only downside was the bust area. I have a pretty large chest for my size, so if you are top heavy I would recommend going a size up, as there is little stretch in the bust. Other than that, I got so many compliments and the color was beautiful in person. The fabric also has more sheen to it than the picture shows, making it appear more formal.

The fit of this dress was beautiful! I felt like a goddess with the gold necklace I rented (shown)
This dress fit like a glove! I got so many compliments on the color which turns out to be a deep coral color. I am usually between a 4 and a 6. I tried on both but the 4 was too snug around my chest (34C) that I couldnt zip it all the way up! Thankfully RTR sends you a second size and the 6 fit perfectly! The only reason I gave this dress a 4/5 stars was because the 6 was sent to me slightly damaged (stains on the hem and hook for closure in back missing). Overall would definitely rent this dress again!

Not great for formal affair
This dress was too pink for the occasion (it looked young - more prom than formal affair), and too fitted from top to bottom. Not very flattering, but it did run small, so if I sized up maybe the fit would be better. Pretty pink dress in person for a younger woman, just not for a conservative formal affair.

Beautiful formal dress!
I rented this dress for a wedding on New Years Eve. I loved the dress and got many compliments on it. Some negatives - the dress has padding inserts but only came with 1 insert, luckily I have large breasts so I just took the one cup insert out. I am 5'2'' and wore 5 inch heals and the dress was still too long. There is not really a finished hem on the bottom of the dress and it looked pretty frayed. The top of the dress looks a little different than the main photo, there is an extra piece of fabric that goes across the top. I had to use double sided fabric tape to have it line up correctly. The size 6 and 8 both fit well, but I chose the size 8 because the 6 was worn out and the ruching on the top didn't look right.

Stunning
I have a hard body type to fit - hourglass but with a 32H bust. I wore this dress with a bustier (simple strapless doesn't cut it for me) and LOVED it. It wasn't too revealing at the bust (church wedding and I was a reader!), accentuated my waist, and felt luxurious all night long. The color is stunning - coral describes it best. I wore it with a chunky turquoise necklace and received compliments all night.

My date cried, but I looked great!
This dress is great. I originally ordered it as a back up, but that one didn't make me feel good enough. Thank goodness I got this one, too! The color's great, an orangey pink (in the best way possible!) Hugs all the right places. I have a small chest and I still felt great in this dress. Gave it 4 stars because it's pretty basic, but fits great!

great fitting dress!
I'm usually a 2 but I wore the 0. It has stretch to it which was nice. It kind of got loose on my behind during the night but still really pretty! It is more of a red color than the coral-pinky thats pictured on the model.

This dress fit amazingly! It took everything in me not to keep it. The cut was so flattering and comfortable. No shape wear needed and just wore a strapless bra. I can't say enough good things about this dress and RTR!!

Effortlessly getting my dress around my busy schedule.
I liked this dress but I had to wear a size higher because my chest was too large for the 0. The 2 I had to keep adjusting and even with 5 inch heels, I was still trying to manipulate walking and not falling out of it. It was pretty though.

My husband loved the dress!
Loved it, fit true to size. It's definitely on the long side (and I had regular length and I'm 5'5) so make sure you have sky high heels to wear with this gown. Otherwise, a great dress. I have larger hips and normally if the dress fits below its loose on top or if it fits up top its too tight on my hips. But this was perfect.

Don't want to give this dress back!!
I wore this to a gala. It is absolutely stunning. Fit like a glove. Not too tight. The material was so nice. You could tell this was a well made designer dress. I got raves ALL night from everyone. I seriously wish I did not have to give this dress back!! I wish I had another formal event so I could rent this again.

So beautiful and and so flattering!
I wore this dress to my last sorority formal of my college years. I wanted something elegant and spring-colored, so I chose this dress. The color of the dress made me stand out to begin with and even though I was wearing a floor length dress as a petite, 5'1" girl, it was so flattering and accented all the right places. I ordered a 0R and a 2R just in case, and the 0R fit nicely and more on the snug side so the strapless top clung to me instead of sliding down. The only con for me was that the dress was too long for my short body and I had to pin up the bottom of the dress. Wish I could have kept it!
