Despite Hurricane Sandy happening and not being able to get my second size RTR made it work!
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!!

Wasn't a huge fan
So i got this dress in a 6 and an 8. Both sizes were way too big. I normally wear a 6 and that was even too big. The material is also very thin and not very flattering.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

Can't say enough about this dress. I'm normally quite difficult to pinpoint size-wise, but this dress was the exception. All things including the fit, color, length, side slit and design were perfect. Thanks RTR!

had to return the dress due to not fitting my bust
This dress was beautiful, and the material was so silky, but my breasts were just too large. It zipped, but not enough coverage for my comfort level.

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.

The most gorgeous color I've ever seen!
This is an amazing dressed - -I did need to have it pressed before wearing it but otherwise everything was perfect -- it's one-of-a-kind, very fitted but there is stretch so it would work for all ranges of size 0. A little tight in the bust and I'm a 34C with a fairly broad back.

Good for a California late summer wedding
The fit was true to size, and this dress is fitted. It was comfortable for an evening, and the length was appropriate for 3" heels (I am 5'5"). The color was not as deep as shown in the picture. I think it looks nice with gold accessories.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

Beautiful
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
