I LOVE this dress. This was my first time ordering and I'm very impressed. Rachel took care of a customer service issue (Dress wasn't going to arrive in time) and got it here a day early. It just arrived and I can't wait to wear it tomorrow. It makes me feel like a mermaid. I am about 34/36D but this fits pretty well (still squishes a little) but doesn't show too much cleavage. I ordered a 6 and an 8~ I could wear either one, the difference isn't enormous but I'll end up wearing the one that feels more comfortable tomorrow. I will be a repeat customer!

Beautiful dress-- a little more snug through the hips than I had anticipated, but still very flattering-- recieved tons of compliments! The regular length was just barely long enough with 3-in heels, and since the skirt doesn't flare very much at all it's a good idea to wear reasonably high heels if you don't want your feet sticking out awkwardly all the time. The size 4 fit me perfectly and I'm 36-27.5-37.5. I'm a 36B and the bust was snug, but overall the dress fit perfectly. The dress is more green than it looks in the picture-- I was expecting blue and it was more of a medium sea green, which I was fine with and actually prefered over the blue I thought it would be. Overall I love this dress and highly recommend it!

Loved the dress! I wore it to a Black Tie wedding in downtown Chicago and felt completely relaxed and confident all night! It has a bit of ruching in the front and plenty of stretch which makes for an enjoyable 5-6 hour event. I also ordered Nicole Miller jewelry with the help of the phone consultant and it really completed the look. The most fun was getting the box with the dress and jewelry in the mail! I felt like Cinderella when the fairy godmother showed up.

This dress looks fabulous. It is extremely flattering and the color is excellent. It is also a bit stretchy, in a good way, so even though it looks nicely snug, it's comfortable to move around in. Also, you can wear a bra with straps if you can adjust the straps in the back to be set wide. I can't recommend this highly enough.

I didn't think much of this dress. It arrived very wrinkled and evn with pressing just didn't seem quite right. It was ordinary not special. Luckily I chose two different dresses. This one I didn't wear.

I absolutely loved this dress. I wear a 2 in J. Crew jeans and the 4R fit perfectly. The fabric is incredible and feels great on your skin. The only problem I had was the train, since it made it difficult to dance in. But I just scooped up the fabric and tied it in a knot around my calf and got down on the dance floor!

This dress fit me like a glove, I was so happy with it and the compliments flowed . I'm busty (D) with narrow hips on an athletic build. I chose the size 4 in the shortest length offered, went without a bra and felt supported This dress is comfortably snug in the right places, falls beautifully and is more green than blue. People did step on the slight train at the back and dancing in it was a little tricky but so worth the extra consideration. The dress had a few snag pulls but they didn't show when I had it on. This is a lovely dress to wear, it adds length to your look and is very sexy with just enough skin revealing to be very classy.

This dress was my second choice. I ended up wearing it due to a winter storm complication with my first dress. I recieved many compliments wearing this dress. In person it is more green but still flattering and very beautiful. I wore it to the American Heart Association Ball and it was very appropriate for the function. The dress hugs all your curves in the right places. It's the perfect dress for when you want to look sexy without showing too much skin. I wore 3 inch heels and the dress feel right at my feet. Customer service was very helpful and polite. I would recommend renting to anyone, it was very easy, reliable, and fast!

rented this dress for my senior prom and loved it! fit like a glove, and I recieved alot of complements through out the night. The fit and color was very flattering! the color is more green in person than in the picture but the color is still very pretty. I ordered a long size and wore sparkley flat sandals and the dress fell right at my feet, although I could have wore heels without it looking too short.

This dress is beautiful! I wore it to a wedding and got lots of compliments. It is easy to dress up or down with shoes and jewelry. It is very comfortable too, although it has more ruching around the waist and was a little looser in that area than it looks in the photo. It was very flattering though, especially from behind. I am 5'8 and got the long, and it was very long - even with 3 inch heels, it still touched the ground. The train is a bit long for dancing (it got stepped on a few times) but very elegant. Highly recommend!

This is a beautiful dress BUT it is super figure hugging so if you are potentially going to be any way bloated or in your "I don't like my junk in the trunk" phase then I would get a back up just incase. I got it a couple days before the event and when I first tried it on, I had to give myself some thumbs up in the mirror as the dress makes you look stunning, sexy yet classy. Then the day of, I had to switch dresses as I must have had a bit too much salt in my Chipotle the day before as the dress was slightly, just slightly, unforgiving. I would try it again but again with back-up.

My daughter wore this last night to her HS prom. Gotta say, she was a knock-out! In a sea of rhinestone and ruffles, she looked very elegant. She is 5'7', 140 pounds. Wore the Size 8 Regular with 3 inch heels which was fine, since the train is long in the back. A 6 might have fit her perfect (they were out),but the 8 fit well.(Fabric doesn't have a lot of give since it's silk.) She wore her hair in low bun, which showed off the nicely cut back.I don't have to worry about another pricey dress hanging in her closet, worn only once!

This dress was perfect for a black tie wedding in the afternoon. It was a great length for me--I ordered the regular one--with kitten heels. I wore the 10 because I have a big butt and the 8 was just a little tighter than I was comfortable with back there. Since the material is stretchy, the top wasn't too big even in the bigger size.

I rented this dress for a black tie wedding at a country club. The color is beautiful although it is on the greener side. I got compliments all night from men and women. And it photographs so well. When it comes to the size: I ordered my size and a size up but my regular size fit perfectly. If you are short like me then be sure to have at least 3-4 inch heels. I wore 3 3/4 inch heels and the dress was just a little too long. You have a fishtail train in the back which is beautiful and dramatic when you walk but if your heels aren't high enough can cause some problems. I ended up just picking up the side if I had to walk a distance and it was fine. All in all it was an amazing dress! I almost got as much attention from the dress as the bride was getting :-)

The color of the dress is must better in person...more of an emerald green. Unfortunately, I didn't wear it because the bust was much smaller than a regular size 10. I ALWAYS wear a 10 and this dress was just too snug through the bust and middle. I would have chosen an alternative size, but they didn't have a 12. Thank goodness I had a back-up dress.

This gown was gorgeous and a very flattering cut overall. There is slightly more ruching than appears in the pictures (the backside captures more accurately the amount of ruching. For sizing beware of the long, because it is very very long. I’m 5’8 and prefer flats and low heals so it was at least 2 inches too long for me. Also as far as being “stretch silk” there really was very little stretch to the fabric. The dress does run true to size but be careful about sizing down as there’s not much wiggle room! The silk was so beautiful but didn’t travel well compared to other fabrics I’ve rented… this one looked like it traveled 5 days and 3000 miles in the mail and arrived a bit wrinkled. I was pleased that this dress is a true teal color, much more green than it looks on the model and the overall feel was light and airy while still holding everything firmly in place.

The fact that when I called on Thursday afternoon they were able to get me the right size for my event the following evening!! Great Customer Service!!!
Got this dress in a 6L and a 8R first. The 6 was WAY too tight and the 8 was WAY too short...I am 5'9". They over nighted me the 8L and it fit perfectly. I am busty and should have had a 10 just for that reason but it would not have fit anywhere else. So if you are taller than 5'7" get a long...it was too short for me bare footed.

Love Rent The Runway
This dress was more teal in color than green, which I didn't care for. I ordered a 2R and 4R and wore the 4R because the 2R was way too small - even the 4R was snug with Spanx. It was a bit short as well, I'm 5'7" and wore 3 inch heels, I would have loved for it to be an inch longer. Overall using Rent the Runway was AMAZING! So quick and easy! I loved it so much!

I love renting from RTR and would highly recommend it!
I wore this gown to a Mardi Gras ball and it was beautiful. It was a bit snug in the bust and butt but overall very comfortable. I am 5'2" and wore 3 inch heels and the train still drug a bit making it a dancing nuisance. The petite was not available for me but I would definitely recommend if you are 5'4 or shorter.

Best compliment: "I love that color on you!"
I usually wear a 4, but this was only available in 6. I got the long version and it fit well. Could have been a bit longer, but I am 5'11" and chose to wear 3 1/2" heels. I would be careful with a larger chest with this gown, it is very form fitting. I would even consider going up one size more if I was to wear it again. The color was beautiful and I got lots of compliments before and after on the color. It is more green in bright light and more teal in darker light. The train is great, but if the room is crowded, it will get stepped on. Get a good strapless bra because the shape you get will show. Overall, I was very pleased.

Beautiful and comfortable!
I got this dress for a formal event that was on St. Patrick's Day. Perfect color! It is definitley a little greener than in the picture, but not by much. I loved the way it fit, and it has just enough rouching to cover up any tummy issues. My favorite part is the neckline (gorgeous) and the little mini train - though be careful of people walking behind you!

I wore this dress to my sorority formal. I am only 5'2" so I was worried about the length, but with 4" heels I pulled this off! Loved the fabric and it fit perfectly all over! The small train in the back is so much fun and really plays up the elegance of this dress.

Amazing Dress!
I rented this dress for a formal wedding. It was supposed to be my back up dress but I ended up liking it so much, that I decided to wear it instead. The fit was fabulous and it was very comfortable. With high heels (4 in), it just swept the ground, perfect length. Paired the dress with a simple 3 strand floating pearls for a classy look.

Stunning dress! Did not want to return it!
Nicole Miller never disappoints! This dress is gorgeous! I rented this dress for a black tie wedding in Puerto Rico and it was perfect for the occasion. The color is so vibrant and the fit is incredibly flattering. I especially loved the neckline and the cutout back. The cinching on the side is subtle but really improves the look and fit of the dress. I rented the 0R because the 0P was not available, but if you are 5'3 or under I would definitely recommend the petite. The regular was much too long on me but I made it work. I received so many compliments on this dress! I also rented the Nicole Miller Magnolia earrings which were a great accessory. I highly recommend this dress and would definitely rent it again!

The open back detail and the square neckline were just so stunning!
It was a stunning dress, amazing color, nice and long and me with a slight train. So pretty and glamorous. The only issue for me was it ran small in the bust and I felt like I was pretty squished in. It wasn't uncomfortable but it didn't look right in some of the pictures. Other than that - amazing!

This was my first RTR dress and it was so easy & awesome that I've recommended it to all my friends!
I rented this dress for a black tie gala and LOVED it! I'm 140, 5'9", no curves, and have broad shoulders. This dress gave me the illusion of curves - at least for one night! The 6L was a bit long (like in the model photo) even with 3" heels, so I had to watch my step going down stairs. Otherwise not a problem. The teal color was a bit deeper/darker than in the photo and made me unique in a big crowd. I'd definitely recommend this dress.

A very comfortable and flattering dress, perfect for a black tie wedding. The 4 was very form fitting on me but the 6 was too big- I wore the 4L and was comfortable all night.
