I never stopped getting compliments on how I looked!!

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Even my fiancé (who NEVER stops in his tracks to say "wow") couldn't stop complimenting me. It accentuated my butt really well... it just looked realllllllly nice on me in all of the right places! I'm definitely renting this one again!! I also included a pic or 2 that had views of the bracelet that I rented to accessorize my look! I am 5'9", 36B and 160lbs. I wore 2 inch heels with the dress. I ended up ordering the 'long' size and I'm glad I did! 10L fit me perfectly!

Absolutely stunning and unforgettable

I wore this dress to the ballet. I've rented several dresses and this was by far my favorite! What makes this dress is how its cut. Simplicity is stunning when a cut is flattering and done well. At my height the regular was perfect when I wore my 4" heels. If you want to feel elegant go with this dress.

Great black dress!

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my backup dress but I ended up wearing it because the boning was poking out of my first choice dress - ouch! I'm usually between a size 4 and 6 so, against my better judgment after practically studying the reviews, I conservatively went with the 6L. If I order this again I will size DOWN to the 4L because I could have gone for a tighter fit. Since the 6L wasn't quite hugging my body the way I wanted (I'm pretty straight and curve-less), I wore spanx under the dress and a strapless bra to help hold my shape (otherwise I could see my belly button, which bothers me) and fill out the chest. I'm also just shy of 5'7" and I love tall heels. I wore 4 1/2-5" inch heels and the bottom of the dress just touched the ground, which was perfect. Other than that, the dress was in great condition and I got plenty of compliments. I'd definitely recommend this dress.

Felt like a million bucks!

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I thought the dress was incredibly comfortable and really flattering. The material is stretchy enough that you don't feel like you are restricted. I'm usually an 8 and that size fit great but the Long was a little short for me. I ended up not being able to wear my tall heels and had to find something shorter (like 2 inches) so it would come close to touching the ground. This is definitely a safe choice for a go to black dress!

Nonstop compliments!

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this to my husband's unit's Marine Corps Ball this past year and I was receiving nonstop compliments! It was definitely curve hugging but in all the right places. I rented both the 8L and 10L but opted for the 10 so my chest wouldn't pop out too much, but both fit really well! I read everybody's reviews and everybody said that the regular was still short with heels. I'm 5'5" and ended up wearing 5" heels which were perfect for the length of the long. My only complaint (minor) was the sequins under the arm that kept rubbing on my bicep; it was slightly uncomfortable but was bearable.

I have worn this to my husband's company christmas party, a charity event, and finally to my close friend's black tie wedding. Even the mother-of-the-bride complimented the gown! A true winner and comfortable to wear. Nothing poking or riding up or sliding out of place. Perfectly classic.

Dancing on the 50 yard line at Soldier Field was a first for an event and very fun!

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was a super easy fit. I wore this to a black tie event and felt it was very appropriate. The material was stretchy and did not require much fussing. I ordered the 4 Long and it was a little short on me (wore 3" inch heels and you could see pretty much the whole shoe), but not horrible looking. The waist was flattering, but not cinching - which I usually prefer ;) I did not have to wear spanx with this fit which was great. All in all, classy and classic dress that was very easy wear and to accessorize. Would definitely recommend it!

The first dress I rented was damaged and unwearable. RTR overnighted this to me and I LOVED it! Fit like a dream and I was given compliments all night long. Paired with some great earrings from Ciner that I had also rented and the look was classy and sexy all in one. Thanks, RTR!

Loved this dress! It is incredibly flattering whatever your body type.

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Like I said the black was very flattering in general. I actually wore this dress to prom haha. The rutching on the hips turned out to be gorgeous. There were a few flaws in the way it seemed to fit one me- none of them fatal. The front inner lining would sometimes peek out, and the back wasn't incredibly tight on me so it seemed to droop a bit if I held my shoulders with good posture. Both of these were simple fixes. I probably should have worn a 6 instead, and these problems would have been fixed. The reason I chose an 8L and a 10L was because I was weary of how tight the top might be...? The dress runs true to size.

Gorgeous classic dress!

Size worn: 2P
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This Nicole Miller gown was gorgeous. It fit very comfortably and is great for an hour-glass figure. You have to be confident to wear this dress because it's not forgiving. I got the 2P, so the fit was great for my proportions and the length was perfect. I ordered it on a Sunday night, and it arrived on Tuesday, even though it was scheduled to arrive on Thursday, so I had a few extra days to try it on. Thats what I love about RTR. My back-up dress was a 4P. In retrospect, I should've ordered a 0 as my backup, because the 4 was way too loose and the 2 had room. I am very petite though, so I would definitely say this dress runs true to size, and if anything to order a size up since it's not forgiving (it shows everything). If you're worried about that, pair it with spanx.

Such a beautiful dress to wear to a beautiful NYC black tie wedding!

Size worn: 8P
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was super comfortable and very flattering. The 6 petite fit everywhere except the bust was a bit too tight (I am 34DD/32F), so I went with the 8 petite. I had to wear a strapless bra with it, but I didn't have to wear shapewear (the ruching was actually very flattering in the stomach area). I'm 5'2" and I wore 3" heels, and that was perfect for the petite length. I would definitely wear this dress again at another formal event.

Dress fit great. The stretch in the fabric made it conform to my body really well, and it was extremely comfortable to boot. I ordered the 6L and because I am tall the length was perfect. I was even still able to wear 4 inch heels. I would highly recommend this dress. I was also pleasantly surprised to see the back of the dress is cut in such a way to really flatter your behind, which was an added perk (literally and figuratively speaking).

Gorgeous dress for a black tie wedding!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress fit my body perfectly! It's subtle ruching hid any imperfections around my midsection I was concerned about. It was perfect length with around 3 inch heels. The dress was so comfortable and was easy and fun to dance in. There is a slight train on the back of the dress that did catch my heels once or twice so just be aware when walking up and down stairs. The sequins on the dress made it pop and the cut of the dress made my 32A chest look fantastic! Highly recommend!

This dress hugs in all the right places! No problems wearing a strapless bra with it. I'm 5"2 and wore 2.5" heels with the 0R size, which allowed the dress to skim the ground. I actually wanted to size up to the 2P but it was surprisingly too long for my heel + height combo. Really happy with this dress and can't wait to try other colors.

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress is a safe "go-to". Being that Im a little busty and have a wide back, the 8L was the perfect fit for me. It was floor length while wearing 3inch heels. The beading on the shoulder's are subtle but noticeable which is why I kept my hair swept up. I wore minimal jewelry to make sure I didn't take away from the dress...Its simple yet classic! Hands down, one of the best dresses I've worn thus far.

I originally rented a different dress and was worried when it didn't fit right and I had to have another dress over nighted to me. This dress was so perfect! It ran true to size, the material is very soft and the length just hit the tops of my toes and the train hung a little in back. It is clingy. I didn't mind but just a reference. The back detail is stunning.

This dress fit so incredibly perfect. I wore three inch heels and the dress touched the floor perfectly, no tripping what so ever. I was able to wear a strapless bra without it showing as well. The sequins under the arm scratch a teensy bit, but were never bothersome. I would wear this dress again and again if i could. We sat through a couple of hours at a military ball & then danced all night and the dress was never uncomfortable, and i never had to pull it up, down, sideways. it was just so perfect.

In a sea of black dresses, this one stood out. The fit was great, tight, but comfortable. It moved easily both walking and standing for an hour for cocktails and was still comfortable being seated for dinner and an auction. The only thing that was annoying was the sequins on the shoulders folded in a little, but that's me being very picky. Didn't need Spanx as the weight of the fabric and rushing was forgiving. Will not hesitate to rent again!

Great gown for a formal wedding

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was my first time using RTR, and it was super easy. I needed a dress that fit into 3 buckets - long enough so I could wear heels (I'm 5'10"), not too much cleavage, and NOT strapless. This dress fit all three perfectly! I was able to wear 2/2.5 inch heels and felt great. I got a lot of compliments and felt really pretty. It is a tight fit, so I wore spanx - I wanted the 8L, but they didn't have it, so I went 6L. I probably would have worn the size up if I had had it, but still was a great dress.
