Beautiful dress- but low cut!
This dress was really pretty and perfect for a November wedding. It fit true to size, but it was really low cut- if you have boobs they are going to be on display!!! I'm not even sure if fashion tape would have helped because the lace and the lining could move separately from each other. It wasn't a huge deal- but watch out if you are a C or greater.

Beautiful dress although I'm a D cup and the neckline is lower than expected
Beautiful... Went with the 4 rather than 6 to cover my chest. It's not stretchy so the smaller size fit better and wasn't baggy around the waist.

Great dress! I got so many compliments!
Fits a bit on the snug side, but not too small. It is comfortable and has loops to keep your bra straps in place. The color is amazing in person!

Perfect shape- classy and sexy!
The fit was like other Nicole Miller dresses with the under fabric making the dress very flattering. However, at 5'4", the dress was too long so I had to tape it up which ended up being fine. I got compliments all night long on the dress- not too much cleavage and just the right amount of sexy! My husband loved it.

Great Fall Dress
This is a lovely dress, but I was a bit too tall for it and didn't end up wearing it for the event. I'm 5'10" and the waist/hemline hit too high. Beautiful color though, and a sexy fit.

The dress was perfect!
I received so many compliments and from people that I didn't even know. The dress fit in all the right places and was comfortable to be in all night. However, if you are busty be prepared for some cleavage.

Feeling like a duchess!
This is a really classy but sexy dress. I noticed on the size 0 that the lace around the bust area kind of folded over. Perhaps the previous customer was a bit bustier than me. :) Anyway, I pressed that area and it worked fine. I did try on the size 2 to see if there was much of a difference. The size 2 is quite a bit longer and was about1 inch below my knee. The 0 was perfect, just above the knee.

Beautiful lace dress!
I wore this dress for a wedding weekend welcome dinner and it was the perfect level of formality for the event. The color is more purple than burgundy, which is why I deducted a star. In terms of fit, I typically wear a 2-4 in dresses but since this was a backup I went with the 4. The fit in the chest is very large with the low-cut V neck and lots of extra space in the armpit area. Women with a larger bust might have less trouble here, but I was surprised by how loose the top was since I have an athletic build with broad shoulders and muscular arms. The waist and hips also loose. The dress hits just above the knee, which was almost too long for a 5'2.5" girl. Overall, I think the 2 would have been a better fit.

Dress is perfect in so many ways..
The color of this dress is what caught my attention first, once I tried it on the fabric is jsut stretch enough to hug the body in all the right places. It is perfect for a dinner date, wedding, or something where you want to show off just enough. Love this!

BEAUTIFUL! My husband could not take his eyes off me!
LOVE this dress! The color is a rich purple, a bit brighter than it looks in the model photo, which was a pleasant surprise. The lace is amazing, like all Nicole Miller dresses. I normally wear a 2-4, but the 4 fit better overall. I felt like the 2 was a bit tight in the shoulders (I do have wide shoulders though, and with the long sleeves there was not much give through that area). There is some definite cleavage with this dress but with the longer length (came a few inches above my knees) and the lace, it comes across as sexy, not over the top. The 4 was a bit looser in the waist than I would have liked, but the hips/butt were perfect. You'll definitely need some help getting the zipper up and down but once it is on - WOW! My husband was very sad to see this one returned...would definitely rent again!

Gorgeous color- the photo doesn't do it justice!
Lovely dress. Super classy, very elegant, can go from afternoon wedding to late night reception seamlessly. It was a LITTLE snug, and just a smidge shorter than I would have liked, but not obscene or anything... The fabric does stretch, and is pretty forgiving, so I was very comfy, although Spanx made a world of difference for me. The zipper is kind of flimsy, though, so be careful! Also, I definitely recommend fashion tape for the bust so it doesn't slide around.

Beautiful dress!
I rented the 8 & the 10. The 8 was tight in the chest area and made me a little too boobilicious for a work event, lol! So I wore the 10. The fabric is stretchy and comfortable. The dress is purple, not plum. It was a brighter color than I expected, but was still very pretty!

Really cute, conservative, yet sexy.
I rented this dress using the overnight try on deal RTR had going on. This was not the dress I ultimately decided to rent for my upcoming event. It's definitely a cute dress. Really forgiving and conservative. I really liked the sleeves. Good length for a shorty like me - my only gripe is the neckline.. I'm a really busty girl and I found the neckline to be really wide. The front was tight but the part where the neckline met the shoulders bunched up on me. That would have made me self-conscious all night so I'm glad I got a chance to try this on first.

Great dress!
Great dress, but I didn't wind up wearing it to the wedding. The week before I bought another dress at an RTR sample sale (ML Monique Lhuillier Your Moment Sheath) that I preferred for the event. This Nicole Miller is very comfortable and looks great, I think it would be better for a party than a wedding and I would definitely consider renting it again.

Beautiful dress for a fall event.
I ordered my usual size 6 and an 8 as backup, it seemed very true to size. I had plenty of room for dinner and drinks. The length was appropriate for a wedding and dancing, Showed a little bit of leg but I was never concerned it was too short. The color was beautiful and the lace was forgiving. The only problem I had with the dress, as previous renters have mentioned, the neckline is very low cut. It wasn't enough to keep me from wearing the dress, but it was enough to make me a little uncomfortable. I considered wearing the 8 because of this but it didn't make a difference in the neckline, only a little extra room in the waist area. I would suggest ordering down a size as backup, especially if not busty. Overall, it was a beautiful dress and I got lots of compliments while wearing it.

Nice dress but has been used too many times!
Dress was very nice but lace around the collar had gotten ratty and whoever pressed it did a terrible job - lace layers were sticking out everywhere and the liner around the collar kept slipping up because it had been creased at the wrong spot. I got 2 sizes and both of them had this problem.

Beautiful and classy dress!
I rented this in a 6 as my backup dress for a wedding and ended up wearing it. The fabric is very stretchy and the lace overlay is extremely flattering. The length was perfect for me - I'm 5'10 and always have a hard time finding dresses that are long enough to be appropriate. The neckline was a bit wider and more open than I was expecting, but nothing a little fashion tape couldn't handle. I got lots of compliments all night and the dress was super easy to dance and move around in. Overall, couldn't have asked for a better rental!

Very low cut!
Even with my lowest cut bra and still would have had to tape things to keep things hidden. In the end I would have been too worried the girls were going to fall out so I wore a different dress. It's very stretchy fabric-- good shape wear needed if you have any kind of gut.

Beautiful color, the lace is gorgeous, kinda tight, short and low cut though!
The dress is so well made and just beautiful. It is more purple in person than wine colored as in the photo but its a great color. The dress was shorter than I anticipated. The lace overlay is long but the actual fabric underneath is pretty short. It looks pretty because the lace design is apparent over your legs its just shorter than I expected. It is also very tight. When you walk in larger strides (we were hurrying into the ceremony!) it kinda starts to slide up and you have to pull it down a bit. It is also very low cut. It was definitely a boob dress which I wasn't counting on! Overall I liked it though. They sent me the 2 and the 4 and I went with the 2. I felt slim and delicate all night with the lace sleeves and the way the lace is patterned. I wore nude shoes and gold jewelry with the dress and thought it looked very nice. Wish I had a better photo!

This dress is great! And, it is snug. Even though the 2 fit, I chose to wear the 4 because it gave me a little extra room to move.

Amazing customer service RTR!
This was a pretty dress, but not a stand out in my opinion. I had rented another dress for an out of town wedding that I unfortunately didn't wear, but RTR was so great to help me find something else and assure me that it would be at my hotel before noon the next day. The wedding was at 1 p.m. so I was freaking out and a little skeptical, but sure enough - the hotel's front desk called me at 9:45 a.m. with my RTR package! I was so thankful for RTR's customer service. This dress was pretty - the color was a deep purple and the lace was very pretty. The length was nice too, not too short. However, the neckline was a little low for my taste, especially because it was difficult to wear a bra, so I went without. I was just a little uneasy about it for the duration of the night. The fit is very cut to your body, so go for it if you are comfortable showing off your figure. Pretty dress, but not an absolute favorite of mine.

Classy and Elegant!!!
This dress is definitely classy, elegant and modern!!! It fits true to it's size. It does give you a bit of a cleavage which adds a special touch of sex appeal. Gotta love that!!! I loved the fit of this dress. It hugs your body appropriately allowing you to look sexy and elegant all at once. I received tons of compliments throughout the night! The color is a beautiful eggplant purple with very subtle lacy details throughout the dress. It's just perfect for those Fall/Winter events!!! This is definitely a great rental for your next event!!!

Total hit.
I wore this event for a semi-formal cocktail soiree. The fabric has a bit of stretch to it, so it fits perfectly. It really hugs and accentuates your curves. It hit right above the knee for me and stayed put. The color is fantastic. Highly recommend.

First time renting - great experience!
This dress was the perfect fit - not only for me, but also for the event I attended! I rented a 2 and a 4, but the 4 was too baggy in the waist. The 2 was perfect though - flattering yet comfortable (it's fitted, but there's a little stretch). I wore this for a charity gala...the length (just above the knee) and 3/4 sleeves made it appropriate for the environment, while the lace and pretty color made it modern/fun.

Loved it. Tough to get the chest to fit right (36C), but the 2 was a better overall fit than the 4.
Beautiful dress for a cooler fall wedding. I'm actually thinking about renting it again for another wedding in December. The color was beautiful and the lace was really nice. I also was the first one to wear it (tags were still on), which also was really nice. The 2 was a better fit than the 4, but the chest was a bit tighter than I would have liked.

I had so many compliments with this dress! And most importantly, I felt amazing in it as well.
Easily my favorite dress that I've ever worn. I would even buy it if it was available! I usually wear a 4 but ended up with a 6 here. It seemed that the 4 had too much room in the midsection while the 6 fit closer to the body which was a little strange. I would recommend getting two sizes to try for sure, especially with the lace to make sure you have a fit that works. I would wear this dress over and over again.

Can I keep it?
I loved this dress. I wore it for a Greek Orthodox Rehearsal Dinner. I will say, it is cut lower than I expected. I'm a 36B and even without a push up bra I felt like I was hanging out. However, the length is perfect. Classy and sexy at the same time.

Too revealing for busty girls
I rented this for my office holiday dinner. I did not wear it because it was much tighter than I wanted (both size 8 and size 10), it was short on me, hitting at 4 or so inches above my knees, and the top was too low for a woman with bigger breasts than the model. I wanted a more conservative dress for the dinner, so RTR overnighted me another dress that was perfect!

Perfect dress for a holiday party or formal affair!
I rented this dress for my husband's work holiday party. I recently had a baby 3 months earlier and am not quite back into my "pre-pregnancy" shape so I knew I wanted to get a size up regardless. I read other reviews suggesting to get the second size up as opposed to down so I did that and I'm glad I did! the dress was very snug…in a good way…and had a deep V-neckline. I naturally do not have much cleavage but since I'm still breast feeding I was able to show off my naturally enhanced breasts a bit more in this dress. My normal cup size is 32B and if that was the case now, I would not have been comfortable wearing this dress. I highly recommend this dress if you are looking for a formal event or party. It's sexy and sophisticated at the same time:-)

Got this for my husband's work holiday party but was unable to ear it because it was too small.
This dress runs small. It is a pretty dress but is VERY fitted- will show every extra unwanted inch! Probably great for a night out but was also not formal enough for my event.

Great dress!
Similar to other reviewer's comments, the dress fit well and was comfortable. My only problem with this dress was the very deep, low cut neckline. I'm a 30E bust and I felt a little uncomfortable with the amount of coverage the dress didn't provide. I flipped a piece of the liner up and secured it with the provided toupee tape making the dress an A+ for me.

Loved the dress!
It was perfect for the wedding I attended. It is busty, as others have noted. I wore a decorative scarf during the ceremony at the church. I did have trouble getting the liner to lay smoothly across the chest, and the lace at the neckline kept popping up. Length was very appropriate. Overall, great experience.

The dress actually came several days early
I got so many compliments on this dress! It fit beautifully! The only con I had with it was that the zipper was difficult to operate.
