Not made for boobs.
I usually wear a 10 in a dress, but ordered a 12 as well just incase. This dress didn't even zip on me in a 12. I have a 36 C cup which apparently is HUGE in Nicole Miller's mind. I'm not sure I would have worn the dress anyway though. It's well made, but it looks very prom. The metallic accents in the fabric give it sort of a high-school look.

So Bummed!!
I ordered this dress for a wedding and when it arrived I was pleasantly surprised that the colors were so much more vibrant than the picture! It is simply rich and beautiful! Unfortunately, both sizes were too small in the bust area. I typically wear a size 4 and I couldn't even zip up the size 6!! I suggest ordering up a size to accomodate anyone who has a full bust! I was so disappointed that I could not wear this gorgeous dress!

Perfect summer dress
I rented this dress for an outdoor wedding in August and absolutely loved everything about it! The colors were beautiful, the cut was extremely flattering, and it looked great even without any jewelry. It was lightweight, which was great with the summer heat, and was forgiving enough to allow me to indulge in a big piece of wedding cake :-) I received several compliments on the dress and was so sad when I had to mail it back. I ordered both the XS and Small, but went with the XS since I'm a little smaller in the chest--I found the dress to be completely true to size.

This dress was the best I have had!
I went to my friend's senior prom, and I was very glad I ordered the 4 long! I didn't wear heels, but the dress just hit the floor with flat sandals. I didnt have to wear anything underneath, and the dress still stayed up. It was extremely comfortable and got many compliments! Highly recommended.

Super easy process!
This was my first rental experience and it was absolutely great! The dress was beautiful and the perfect length for me (with four inch heels). I originally ordered the 4R, but ended up wearing my back-up size (2R), which fit better overall and especially in the bust because although it was a little tight, I felt much more secure all night.

Practically Perfect
I adored this dress! I rented it for my junior prom and countless compliments! I ordered semi last minute so I could only get the long sizes, but the fit was perfect at the bust even if it was a little too long, even with 3 1/2 inch heels. The colors are darker than shown, but it photographs lighter. My date wore a dark periwinkle bowtie and it matched perfectly. Overall, I highly recommend this dress

The great costumer service and how everyone kept complimenting me on how beautiful I looked and how much they loved my dress! I'm still getting compliments!!
I rented this dress for prom and fit pretty much how I thought it would. Fit perfectly everywhere but the chest which was a little tight. I have a slender frame pretty big boobs ( I'm sure where they came from) so dresses always fit me a little weird. I completely expected this. I also rented this in a 4L and the chest fit pretty well but to loose everywhere else. Overall I loved the dress, I got compliments all night. And this dress isn't to much so it doesn't wear you, you wear it. Which is always nice. I ordered it to arrive two days before my prom and it came day early! I was so happy because I was so worried it wouldn't arrive on time. Most things don't ever arrive at my house when schedule because I live in such a secluded area. Also after I had already ordered my dress I came back onto the website just to show a friend what it looked like and I decided to look at the length chart because it wasn't available when I first ordered my dress. I saw that for my particular height they suggested a long size instead of just a regular, and it said that was a long without wearing heels. Originally I just ordered a 2 and 4 because I wasn't planning on wearing heels so I figured they would be long enough. As soon as I saw this I freaked out. I wanted to cry because I think it looks so bad when a long dress just isn't quite long enough. But I IMed with a stylist, told what had happened, gave her my order number and bam she changed my order from a regular to a long. It was so great. I loved that everything happened so easily! I will definitely rent again!!!:)

People kept complimenting me all night!
I absolutely loved this dress! The cut was flattering and the color complemented my skin tone really well. For reference, the color is a sort of periwinkle with turquoise streaks; my date wore a lilac vest and bow tie to match. The flecks on the dress are actually gold, but I wore a silver necklace and ring and it still looked fine. I'm really short, so I had to wear 6 inch heels for it to be floor length on me. I got a 6R as my backup and probably could have worn it but the bust was a bit tight for me even without a bra and it came with a hole in the hem, so I ended up wearing the 8R, which was slightly loose but not too bad. Overall it was a really wonderful dress to wear to my senior prom and everyone kept commenting on how gorgeous the dress was, so I don't think I could have made a better choice!

SO EASY! I'll definitely use RTR again
I got this dress because I was searching for one last minute and this was one of the only ones available. Good thing it was gorgeous! The only problem was that I am pretty busty and I really didn't want a strapless dress because I was going to be dancing. I was tugging at this thing ALL NIGHT to avoid nip slips. Good thing my date was good humored. All in all the dress is gorgeous and I got a ton of compliments.

Absolutely gorgeous dress that was in mint condition!
This dress is gorgeous! The gold flecks all throughout are very prominent and the colors are deeper, which made the dress perfect for senior prom. Even though I am short, I figured that my five-inch heels would do the trick with the length, but boy was I wrong! The dress had a little over 2 inches grazing the floor the whole night, which made walking and dancing a bit challenging. My last issue was with the top; it was very loose on me and kept slipping, even though I wore a hefty push-up bra and used dress tape to try to keep it up. Granted, I do have tiny boobs. Overall, it was a great experience and I'm very happy with how the rental went - it was such an easy process! P.S. My date wore lilac and matched perfectly (:

Hey Felicia! I'm really thinking of renting this dress for prom but you said even with 5 inch heels & a size regular length the dress was dragging? How bad was the drag when you were walking? (Did you ever get caught in it)
FeliciaMay 9, 2012
Most of the night was fine for walking, although I would get caught every once in a while. The issues came when I had to walk up or down a slope or had to do stairs.

Great time at friend's wedding
This dress was great for the black tie wedding I attended this summer. Would have preferred to wear a 10L but it wasn't available that weekend - definitely needed some help staying up in the bust.

People kept asking "Where did you get that beautiful gown"?!
I rented this dress for an outside black tie wedding. The colors were perfect for June and I love the metallic thread detail. The shape of the dress (empire) suited my body type well and the length was just right with 3.5" heels. The dress was cool and comfortable. I feel like it ran a bit small in the bust. I'm not large chested and was lucky I could zip it up. Overall a great choice!

I wore this for my 18th birthday. The package came 2 days after I ordered it. It came with 2 different sizes, the turquoise jaded necklace and even some fashion tape for free. It was GORGEOUS! It was a little long even though I did have 3 inch heels. It was snug, yet comfortable enough to even jump in the bounce house I had. I am definitely going to rent from this website again! <3

I rented this dress at the last minute for a wedding in Miami and I was not disappointed. At the reception, I had so many compliments and this dress is outstanding! I wore it with the necklace shown and gold shoes as the dress has gold flecks. Very high quality material and not once did I feel like the top would fall down.

Wore this to a wedding, and received a ton of compliments. It fit well, and was super comfortable. The bodice was snug, and I didn't need to wear a bra with it, as it was pretty structured. I'd rent again!

Absolutely everyone loved my dress!
I absolutely loved this dress! Went to the senior prom as a junior so I definitely didn't want to invest in a prom dress and discovering rent the runway was great. The colors are much more vibrant in person and the metallic specs are gold, not silver. I wore flats and although a bit long it wasn't distracting while dancing. My date wore a periwinkle tie if that helps! This dress was so amazing that I'm scared I won't be able to top it as a senior this year!

This dress is perfect! I am planning on wearing it to a wedding and can't be more excited about it. The fit is great (even for someone like me with a larger bust). I would just recommend in sizing up a bit to accomodate that. The dress is also long even though I ordered the regular length so I will need to wear heels with it and will hem up the front a bit with fashion tape. Other than that the color is beautiful and this dress does not make you look like you're wearing a bag, it hugs the waist at the perfect spot. I highly recommend this dress and would love to wear again!

Great dress, very comfortable and lightweight. Perfect to wear to a summer wedding. Mine was a little short (I wore 3 in heels and the dress was a little too short). But other than that, it was great!

Absolutely loved this look!
I loved this dress! I wore it to a summer wedding. The metallic flecks are actually gold, and the dress is a deeper color in person. The fit was great- if you have a larger bust I would recommend getting the 2nd free dress a size larger to make sure everything fits properly. This was so much fun to wear and it was easy to move in all night.

This dress looks AMAZING in person! I got tons of compliments on it. It was snug through the top, but was beautiful and flattering down below. I would do the size according to what you wear on top. The long length was perfect on me without heels. I would love to rent it again!

Beautiful dress, great fit and perfect length. The only thing I would mention is that I looked really busty (much more than the model) and felt a little self conscience.

What a gorgeous dress! It fit beautifully up top and was so flattering. It was comfortably flowy, but not so flowy that it made you look pregnant or bulky. The colors are lovely, but the gold threads fall off all over the place, which would have worried me except for the fact that this dress was rented! The only problem was it was verrrrrryyy long even though it was a regular and I'm fairly tall. I ended up having to use double stick tape to hem the lining and dress. The good news is that it's so flowy that you didn't notice the slightly bubbled hem. I guess it wouldn't have been a problem if I had been wearing 4 inch heels, but I was wearing flat sandals. All in all a great first rental experience!

I basically felt like the barbie I always wanted to be.
I wore this dress to senior prom and got tons of compliments; I was really pleased with it. It is a little darker and more purple than the photos show, but the pictures still came out great. In terms of sizing, I was expecting to wear the 8 (what I tend to wear from dept. stores), but ended up wearing the 6. I am a 34 C and had a little trouble keeping it up. Regular length was a little long (5'5") but it was nothing a pair of heels didn't fix!

I felt beautiful in this dress! Unique and classy
This dress was even prettier in person! I thought it had silver in the pattern but when it arrived it was actually flecks of gold. A size four fit me perfectly except it was a bit hard to keep up the top because I'm larger chested. I got lots of compliments at prom for it!
