Looks like a costume
I am a huge fan of Nicole Miller, but this was a fail. My first impression when it arrived was that it looked like a costume from a community theater. The fabric looked and felt cheap (so not like Nicole Miller!) and the gold belt detail looked cheesy. I gave it a shot and tried it on (maybe it looks better on?), but was still unimpressed. If you decide to rent this anyway, I would say it runs large for Nicole Miller. I usually wear a 2 in her dresses, but the 0L was the best fit.

Great color, wasn't too bold in the sea of black dresses.
The only size in stock was long, being 5'4" I knew it was going to be way to long. Worked with hem tape and tall shoes. The overlap is flattering, I had a bit of a leftover baby belly that was well hid. There was plenty of room in the chest area, I wore a padded strapless but could have gone without a bra.

Easy way for me to look fab at an event and receive tons of compliments! Would so do this again!
However, the 10L was WAY too long for me at 5'8" and I ended up wearing 6" platform heels to make it just sweep the floor. I also think I could have got away with an 8L because it was a bit loose on top. But overall, very flattering!

Everyone loved the dress on me! They made me feel great about choosing this one
The fit was great! It was nice and form fitted from the top to where the belt is and then was nice and flowy as it reached the bottom. I just wish that the slit at the side was as high as it looks in the picture. I had on these nice heels called the "Dabby Sandal" from Marciano by Guess. I wanted to kind of show them off a little, haha. But overall I loved the dress!! Also If you have small chest like me it is a little bit loose but its not bad.

I would rent it again :-)
Pros: Hides muffin tops The cut gives a slimmer silhouette Color deep and rich blue purple The "belt" is a part of the dress ( it's not a belt, it's a application) My regular strapless bra worked well with this dress xxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Cons: The 10L is a bit to long, I had to tape it up. The slit should be in the front not on the side. It would have given a more sexy appearance I have to hold the dress to show my leg in the photo

Beautiful, flattering Very long
I rented this dress in both the 4L and he 6L. Let me start by saying the long size is very long! Even at 5'6" with 5" heels it was too long (though I suspect that it may have been because the hem seemed to be out at the bottom). Other than that , the dress was beautiful and seems like it would be very flattering if you were looking to hide you mid section. It's more purple than blue and the "belt" is a bit darker than the picture shows. All in all a good rental, I recommend a size down for your backup and make sure to be careful with the length.

Gorgeous dress - fit well and made me feel beautiful!
Looked like the size 4 dress had a slight tear on top line (leaving unseamed line of fold exposed) when I opened it, but I was able to tuck it so it wasn't visible (I think it does need to be repaired though). I received both a 6 & 4 but the 6 wouldn't stay up. Tricky zipper!

Awesome! great great dress.
Size 6 fit me (135, 5'5, 34D) -- bit of a squeeze but it never slipped. Slightly moved during the night but otherwise it was great. I would've gotten a 6R had the 6R not been out so had to wear the 6L which was def. too long but made it work with high high heels. Two words of warning-- just watch out fabric layer on top, its super pretty but can drag so careful not to rip! And the zipper gets slightly stuck right where it goes in for the waist. Otherwise, fantastic dress, love it.

Gorgeous dress, felt like a princess
This dress came exactly how I expected. I went with the 4L because the 2R was a little tight in the bust (as I am chesty). I'm 5'7" and wore 5 inch heels but it was still fairly long. Wanted to order the 4R but it wasn't available. I got compliments all night long, I felt like a princess. Color was beautiful, sometimes photographs a little more on the blue side but it is definitely purple. I paired it with purple and gold earrings, a simple gold bracelet and a small purple and gold ring (nude pumps as well). Wish I could have kept it. My favorite rental yet.

Designed for the well endowed
I rented this dress as my 2nd option. It's designed for women with bigger busts, so it was very large on me. The fabric is heavy and it felt like a choir robe.

Gorgeous dress!
This is a gorgeous dress... beautiful color and style, lots of compliments all evening long. I felt the dress was very flattering and fit true to size except for in the bust. I am a full DD and had to size up from what I normally wear and even with the larger size it was difficult to zip and quite tight in the chest area only. I'm sure that those with a smaller bust wouldn't have any problems though and I would highly recommend this beautiful gown. This was my first RTR experience and I will absolutely be using them again for my future events. The original dress I ordered was not returned on time so I was contacted 2 days prior to my event to 'pick any other dress in stock'... when that dress arrived the next evening and was too small I panicked and immediately called RTR, within minutes I was assured that the next size up was available and would be delivered by noon on the day of my event... sure enough the dress arrived by noon on Saturday (at no additional cost) and ended up fitting. AWESOME customer service and beautiful dresses to choose from... can't wait for my upcoming events this summer to use RTR again.

Tough to zip up but looks great on
i really liked this dress but it didn't seem formal enough to me. Warning, it was super tough to zip up. It was a bit tight and I probably would have had issues breathing comfortably throughout the night, but it is very pretty on. Oh - and I hated the slit... it's such an awkward length (halfway up your calf) and in such a weird location (on the side seam). i think it ruins the lines of the dress. it would have been Grecian/Roman perfection without the slit...

It was a backup dress that I didn't wear, but was very beautiful!
This dress was randomly selected by RTR as a backup dress when my first choice was ruined by the previous renter. I ended up wearing the backup size in my first choice dress, not this one. However, this dress fit very well (it was a 0L), but I definitely needed the regular length. I'm 5'5" and I tried it on with 4.5" heels and there was still probably 2-3" past the floor. Overall, it was a very flattering cut. The belt falls at the natural waist and is very slimming. NOTE: a friend who is 5'7" and slightly thinner than me tried this on and said it was too big in the bust area. If you normally wear a 00 and have a small bust, even the 0 might be too large in this dress.

It fits true to size, unfortunately though they sent me the wrong size.
it's a great length. Cinches the waist in to create an extrodinary hour glass shape even if you don't have one. long enough to wear with 4 inch heels (regular length).

Not what I had hoped
I have narrow ribs but am busty and the dress didn't provide enough support. The bust boning was warped and made it look awkward. Since the fit wasn't right, I called RTR and had them overnight me another dress.

Lovely Dress!!!
I normally wear a 4 but the top was a little loose from wear. I ended up wearing the 2L and it worked out perfect. Had a blast dancing and got so many complements.

Beautiful dress! However...
This was my back up dress since my first several choices were not available in my size (to be fair I ordered pretty late). This dress turned out much better than expected though. It fit really well, and was really beautiful in person. It was perfect for a formal wedding at Notre Dame in February. However, the color is purple, not blue. Also, although the boning kept the dress up and gave it structure around the breast, it dug into my side all night. But it was a very nice dress overall, and I do recommend it.
