This fits perfectly (with a little bit of stretch in the material). The color is a little darker than it looks in this picture. Not a super-bright teal or anything.

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!!!

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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 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!"

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

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!

Overall fit: True to Size

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!

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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!

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: Small

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!

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Gorgeous dress, will flatter most figures. If you are a little more curvy, you may want to spanx it up. The color is a little darker than in the pics, so it was great for a fall wedding.

Awesome dress! Great for the Barrister's Ball I attended. Very flattering!

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress is longer than I thought - Even with heels, I could have done with a 4R and just slightly shorter heels (I'm 5'8"). It is a very flattering dress even with a large chest (DD). Loved the color the best, it's not too "Look at me" out there, but it grabs attention. I got compliments all night!

Wouldn't recommend this dress :-(

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This is dress has a really unique gorgeous color in person but I didn't find it to be as flattering as I would have liked.. If you have an athletic build the top is very tight around the chest/arm area. Also the quality of the dress itself was subpar. There were snags in the fabric all along the stomach and chest areas. I immediately called RTR in a panic b/c I needed at formal gown for a black tie wedding I was attending that Saturday. I placed the order for thursday... They were extremely helpful and gave me my original choice (which I had chosen not to rent b/c of the price) for no additional charge and had it delivered the next day to the hotel I was staying at. The second option was perfect.. RTR saved the day :-)

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved this dress and really wanted to make it work but in the end I opted for a different rental. I couldn't tell from the pictures or uploads that the dress was a snug or had the rouching. It would have been great in maybe the next size up or someone more toned.

Comfortable AND glamorous!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was everything that I hoped it would be - it was form-fitting without being restrictive and the color was beautiful. I got so many compliments and the dress was incredibly comfortable all afternoon and night (I wore it to a black tie wedding in NYC...from the ceremony on through the reception, which was about 9 hours in total). I do wish I got a shawl or something else to cover my back and shoulders during the ceremony though. This isn't an overly revealing dress by any means, but for a January wedding in a cavernous church with cold wooden pews, I felt a little exposed. Also, if you’re 5’6” or taller, are planning on wearing heels of even a modest height, and you'd like the dress to go all the way to the ground as it's pictured on the model, you should probably get the long. However, even though I am 5’6” and I wore about 3” heels, I was actually grateful for the regular because I didn’t want the dress to be dragging on the ground (the “train” just barely skimmed the ground, which was perfect). Overall, I’d definitely recommend this dress to anyone attending a formal affair!

True to size, looked worn.

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was an awesome dress. I could have gone with the 4L but it wasn't available. The 6L was a little loose, even in the bust. The train was gorgeous, but when I received the dress, it looked like someone had stepped on it and torn it previously. I wanted to find a dress I could wear a strapped bra with, and it was unfortunate you could see the straps on the backside. I went with clear, and it wasn't too obvious. Overall, great dress, very flattering.

Gorgeous fit

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress last year for a black tie event and am just now getting a chance to review it. I've worn Nicole Miller before and always love her designs, so I figured this would be a safe bet. The color of the dress is beautiful and the fit is really flattering *if you have the right shape for this dress. The dress doesn't run small per se, but it does hug you all over and is very fitted. i.e. I made sure not to eat too much that night because any tummy pooch will most definitely show in this dress. It would work for pear or hourglass shapes, but I'm not sure that it would be as flattering on an apple shaped body only because of the way it hugs your waist. Beautiful dress though! I would highly recommend it.
