Cute and classy!
This might be my favorite RTR rental so far and it came to me in good condition which has been an issue with some other dresses I rented. It is sexy, yet classy and covers you up. I wore with a strapless bra and it was perfect. I wore earrings that I rented from RTR and black suede pumps. It was perfect for a fall wedding.

I didn't end up wearing this dress.
I liked this dress & it would be great for a Christmas party or Valentin's day but I opted to go with another RTR dress. I like the other dress better, mainly because the dress was a tad boxy in the waist. Still very pretty though.

Comfortable and gorgeous!
I ordered this dress in a small and medium. I found that the back of the dress was very large and not fitted in the medium so I ended up wearing small. Dress is a little short around mid thigh and shows quite a bit of cleavage. The dress was soo comfortable and I received compliments all night.. I highly recommend renting it.

Gorgeous dress!
I absolutely loved this dress! It fit really well and was a good length on me. I got the M and L, but with the large, the sleeves didn't sit the right way. I liked that the lining material was thick and stretchy, so the M fit well enough without showing every bump and curve - it accentuated everything the right way. I could dance comfortably in it, too. The back of the dress lays a little loose, and I was pulling up the front every now and again throughout the night, but felt pretty well-covered. This dress really stood out and I got a lot of compliments on it! It's really the perfect combo of classy and sexy, and I would love to wear it again!

Beautiful. Just didn't work. Slip too short.
Slip is short. I have a narrow rib cage and am a 34 DD. Just made back fit too loose. Boning across breasts stuck out weird. It is a beautiful dress, though. Wish it would've worked.

Sexy dress!!
This dress was very lowcut and sexy. I'd say it runs a bit on the small side because I am usually an extra small, but I had to wear the small size here. The lace detail is gorgeous. I would definitely recommend this one!

Beautiful and comfortable!
Loved everything about this dress. It was in perfect condition, fit great, felt great and looked great. I fluctuate between a size 2, 4 or 6 depending on designer and the size small fit like a glove. I didn't bother trying on the XS. I wore a strapless bra and the dress has a structured fit at the chest that that really helped lift the ladies up ;) My first time renting with RTR and couldn't be more satisfied. Got lots of compliments all night!. I usually just wear black but I loved rocking red for a change, felt special. And when you're renting why not play with colors! Don't hesitate on this one.

Beautiful lace dress. Wish I could of worn it!
I love Nichol miller dresses I got 2 dresses since I always do just to see how I like them an this dress was gorgeous. Iv never worn red dresses but this is so pretty. I choose to wear the other one an I got this one free as my birthday dress with rtr pro (amazing thing by the way) this one as well is a little hard to move the zipper up with the lace. If your looking to look sexy on a date with your husband, THIS is the dress!

I ordered the xs, but it was snug in the bust area, so I wore the small. I got compliments all night and felt like a million bucks! It was comfortable to dance in, too!

Nice dress!
I had ordered this dress as backup and ended up wearing it to go to a restaurant the day after my event. Fabric is very nice. I should have ordered the S thought, this one was a bit too large (I'm a size 4).

Fit like a glove, zipper is a bit tricky but easily managed if you have someone helping you get ready.

Short, tight, sexy little dress!
I rented this dress for a wedding. I am 5/5, about 130 lbs., small chested and large bottomed. The small fit me well. It was tight, but the dress is so well made that it didn't bunch up or even show panty lines. I am small chested and I can see how this dress would be inappropriate for larger chested women since it is both short and low cut. The wedding I went to was fairly formal, so in hindsight, I do wish I had worn a dress that was a little less sexy and saved this dress for a sexier occasion. I did feel hot in it, though! Overall, the dress is gorgeous, well made, and I felt good in it. Would definitely rent it again.

Too sexy for the occasion, but great quality and overall a good RTR experience!
It was a little too short and revealing for the event I needed it for, but if I ever need a VERY sexy dress for anything in the future, I know what to rent!

It's a stunning dress. The fit was flattering, sexy and comfortable, and the color is beautifully vibrant. One of my favorites!

This dress was super duper sexy. The only downside was that I had to keep adjusting the neckline to accommodate my bustline. Overall it was very comfortable, hugged all the right places, and I got lots of compliments. I did wear it with a Va Bien bustier (513).

I wanted a fabulous dress to wear on my birthday and this was definitely it
The dress fit beautifully. I've put on some weight recently and have been feeling self conscious, but this dress accentuated the things that I like about my body. There's nothing like a great red dress.

The dress kind of rides up so I would suggest to go up one size. But the material really surprised me. It hid everything I wanted it to hid and it turned out to be a hit! I got plenty of compliments at this party!

The dress is very comfortable to wear and snug to your body. I was wearing a nude color bra and it worked fine with the semi transparent cap sleeves of the dress! the lace looked sophisticated and the color vibrant! Overall a great dress for feeling sexy and beautiful!

Happy w first RTR purchase
Loved the color. Ordered small and medium, both fit but went w medium for comfort and length for church wedding. The top of the back of dress was a bit stretched out and slouchy but not a big issue. But the hanger straps kept coming our and had to have my boyfriend frequently tuck them back in. I don't have a large bust so I made sure not to slouch or else it is easy to see bra pop out. But overall, received compliments on the dress and glad I ordered from RTR.

I rented this for my engagement pictures. I loved the color and the photos came out great!
The dress was stretchy, but I'm glad I got the extra size. I usually wear a 4, but I needed the 6 in this dress. It was also a little shorter than I'm usually comfortable with. I had to be very careful when sitting not to show anything.

Red hot!!
This dress is super sexy and tight . It hugs and accentuates all of your curves. The lace detail of the dress is beautiful. The fabric is very light and it's good to wear for an outside wedding. Sometimes I get a little iffy on wearing lace, because sometimes it gets itchy, but the lace is soft and the lining of the dress is silky. I also rented the small and I found that it rode up while I was walking, so therefore I opted to wear the XS instead. Beautiful dress! Would rent again!

Great way to try a new style/color!
I'd give it a B+! Not not too heavy with all the lace, and the perfect color red. My only issue was how short the liner was underneath the lace. It was supposed to be shorter than the lace, but it felt REALLy short on me. The dress arrived on time and ready to wear - except the size L - which I ended up wearing, was torn a tiny bit at the chest twist. It wasn't too noticeable, but it did bother me. I was expecting to wear the medium, and it did fit, but the liner was so short, I wore the large to be more comfortable. The lace is longer than the liner, but when the only thing you feel on your body is a liner crawling up your backside, it can be nerve wracking. I never wear red and this was a great opportunity to try it out inexpensively. Most shades of red don't look great on my medium tone/tan skin, but this one did!

Be prepared to be the center of attention!
If you want a show-stopping, head-turner, then rent this dress! It is very fitted in the bust area, so I personally didn't have to wear a bra. It comes away from the torso slightly, so you don't have to feel like you need to "suck in" all night. I still wore a pair of Spanx so I'd feel comfortable after eating a big meal. The color is very flattering, and the material is soft with some stretch. I truly wish I owned this dress!

Wore this to the NY Bridal Market parties. It was perfect!
Loved this dress! Nicole Miller designs are so flattering. Material was comfortable, light and movable. A medium might have been a little roomier in the bust, but I was getting it from the story and the small worked just fine. I actually originally ordered a different dress but put in the date wrong (!!), and luckily the customer service directed me to the NY location to pick something up and I found this. It worked out great!

Just the right amount of sexy
I loved this dress. I was a little worried it would be a little too racy for a wedding in the south, but I think it was just enough. The red color was rich and classy and the dress length was perfect for me, although a taller woman may have to be careful. I have a small chest and decided not to wear a padded bra to keep the neckline somewhat more demure. The fit was snug and somewhat unforgiving, but I think wearing spanx might have helped.

The dress is true to it's size. Material is a little bit stretch and fits like a glove. Great dress to wear on a night out in Vegas. Got plenty of complements on it. Will recommend both Nicole Miller dress and RTR to anyone.

A little too much for me - didn't wear it
This dress is gorgeous. The Small fit, but the Medium fit me better. Unfortunately, it was just a bit too much of everything - too short, too (purposely) snug and too much cleavage. It was very sexy - and I was looking for sexy - but it was just too much at once for me. That said, I live in a conservative political city. Had this been earlier in my life or in another location, I probably wouldn't have thought twice about wearing it.

The dress fits true to size, is tight on all the right parts. Not too short for a wedding, but it was very sexy! The color made me stand out! The sleeves are super cute, but started sliding down when i started dancing. I loved the dress, I would rent it again!

Perfect for a Fall/Winter wedding or holiday party. Very pretty
Definitely an attention grabber! -- Probably a bit too sultry for a church ceremony so I changed before the reception. I am quite hippy and it wasn't too short or revealing. If you are a bit curvier I would suggest going up a size larger than you normally would wear. Really pretty with gold jewelry and nude pumps :) loved this dress.

Fun, flattering dress
This dress was nicely fitted, but I have a pretty short torso and larger chest so it ended up being a little more low-cut than I would have preferred (although I was able to get by on pulling it up throughout the night). I didn't wear a bra with it but any strapless bra should work. The lace is stretchy so it hides flaws and is easy to dance in! Overall it's a very comfortable dress and I would rent it again!

Red hot!
The overall fit was right on point. It was awesome for a night out in NYC! The dress was form fitting, yet gives a little so it's not super snug- it's easy to move in. Very figure flattering. The top even fit fine even though I am not big busted.
