Perfect lacy holiday dress!
Super cute dress for a holiday party. Looks great on busty girls and hugs curves without being too tight.

Hearing the words sexy and beautiful from the man I wanted to hear it from the most-sealed the deal!
I ordered a medium and large. The medium fit better in the top but was an inch shorter so I opted for the large which still fit in all the right places. Except the upper back. That part fell outward some so I used fashion tape to hold it against my skin. It fit perfect. I wore panties and no bra and you could see cleavage but nothing more even bending over or looking down into the dress. It wasn't tight so it wasn't uncomfortable how some dresses can be. I received so many compliments I had a hard time sending it back!! I loved it and would rent it again.

Hot NYE dress!
I rented this Nicole Miller to wear on New Year's Eve. I ordered a medium and a large, and I ended up wearing the medium...both sizes clung to my mid-section (my problem area) and the medium showed off "the girls" and my legs more, so...it being NYE after all...I went for it! This dress is a gorgeous color, and the lace and cap sleeves are very pretty. I will say, if you have a tummy (like me) you will probably need to wear some control-top panty hose or spanx with the dress. I found that the pantyhose worked a lot better than my spanx at flattening me out, and since it was cold out, it made sense to wear them anyway! If I hadn't worn black hose, I would have worn the dress with gold shoes. I also need to add that the customer service at Rent the Runway is exceptional! I guess I accidentally didn't order my back-up size, so just the medium came at first (on December 30). When I first tried on the medium (without pantyhose) I didn't think it would work, so I called. They overnighted me a large free of charge, and I got it on 12/31 at 4:00! Even though I ended up wearing the medium after all, I was so glad to have the other option. And the girl I spoke with was so nice and understanding! Definitely made me want to rent again.

Perfection
Fit like a glove and TTS. I'm usually a 4-6 and the M was perfect. I'm a 34DDD and have a smaller waist with bigger hips. My strapless bra wanted to make an appearance throughout the night, which was annoying, so think about wearing a red bra. Other than that, loved this dress! I was sad to return it!

Nice color
This was a back up dress and it completely did not work for me. The XL was large on the top and ran small on the bottom. It was shorter than I'm used to. Better for straighter figures with a bust who don't mind showing more skin.

I felt so sexy in this little red dress!
I'm hourglass shaped so it was tighter around my butt and thighs and loose around my stomach but still really comfortable

Loved the color!
Fits rather snug. Usually an XS I wore the S instead due to the short fit of the dress. It was rather low cut for a family party and I had to be conscious of exposing too much when sitting or leaning forward! I would not recommend to wear anywhere that may require more conservative attire.. I got many compliments on the dress overall.

I wanted a dress that I would feel like a million buck in at my 40th Birthday party. This dress more than fit that bill! The dress for is extremely flattering. Fits true to size. I am petite, 112, 32dd and wore the XS.

Prepare yourself for lots of compliments!
The dress came early and ran true to size and was gorgeous! I recommend a strapless bra because the sleeves are a little off the shoulder. I highly recommend this dress!

Didn't wear it.
Although it looked sexy from the front, the back was hanging off my body which was too strange. It seemed as though it was stretched out in the upper back area.

Red means sexy flattering and head turning!
I was slightly disappointed with the fit. You definitely need a push-up bra for this if you are on the smaller side in the bust area. However, in perfect lighting the red is more vivid than you would think it would be. It is more on the simpler side than an actual formal dress but with great accessories and nice hairdo you will end up looking fabulous. I received a lot of compliments and if no one else is wearing red you will definitely be noticed. Overall I was very pleased with the results and on top of that the dress was soooo comfortable. So if you want to be comfortable and look sexy and classy at the same time this is the dress to choose.

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.

The lace and cut of the dress were really cute
But I found that the neckline was REALLY stretched out. I had to safety pin the dress to my bra to keep my straps from showing, and there was a gap in the back. Probably would be a good dress for busty ladies, or a lot of busty ladies had already rented it and it stretched out. Was still cute though!

I have never gotten so many compliments on a dress!
This dress was awesome. I wore it for a Gatsby-themed party, and I've never gotten so many compliments before. Plus it was incredibly comfortable, I never had to worry about it riding up or anything. I wore a strapless bra because the neck was a little wide so straps would have shown. I would rent it again, everyone wanted to know where I'd gotten it. Great first RTR experience!

Is there such a thing as Too Sexy?
This dress is incredible. It is perfectly fitted and definitely "flaunts' your assets. I rented it for a date with my husband and he loved it. It is QUITE tight and def needed spanx, because every flaw is noticed without it. But with it...super sexy. I wish i had the medium though, because it was almost too fitted and short at the same time. Normally I like one or the other, but both is almost too much for my conservative nature.

I wore this dress to my husband's residency graduation dinner and it was perfect!
The red color and lace material are really pretty! And it's a very comfortable dress. I ordered an XS and a S. I'm normally an XS in dresses, but it was just a bit too tight and short for the occasion. So I wore the S which fit really well and was a perfect length for me (I'm only 5'0"). I received a lot of compliments and was very pleased with this dress!

This is a beautiful comfortable dress for a formal event.
I really liked the way it just barely hung off the shoulders, but you CAN wear a regular bra with it. I suggest a flesh toned one because black really stands out against the red in the event it does slide in one direction or another.

The dress was not flattering and I did not wear it. There is very limited stretch.
If you have a full bust and have hips, keep browsing for another dress.

Festive and Comfortable
Runs a little small...I usually wear an XS in dresses like this, but I decided to go with the small for my fiances work holiday party. Had I been using this dress for a girls night out at a club, I would've gone with the XS but it was a little too short and too clingy for the occasion. The dress is stretchy, and there is some boning to provide shape over the bust. Something for tall women to keep in mind; the lining of the dress stops about 4 inches above where the lace ends, so if you have very long legs it might be a little short, depending on where you're going. I'm only 5'1 and the dress stopped several inches above my knee.

I received so many compliments at this fundraiser I was at for this stunning red dress. The fundraiser was during the Christmas Season so the color was perfect! This dress is very comfortable, but I did wear a size larger then normal so that did not pull.

Stop-and-stare number!
All in all, a hot dress for an unforgettable date night. It's definitely sexy and a gorgeous color -- true (blue-red) red. My only gripe is that it is a LOT shorter than I expected -- the lace goes to about the mid-thigh but the lining underneath stops far north of that! Be prepared to feel very exposed if you're on the average to tall side! It's also a lot more form fitting than I realized -- definitely hugs and shows off your curves. I wore a strapless bra so as not to interfere with the elegant neckline. It's a showstopper -- my boyfriend kept telling me I looked like a model!

For the largest size available, a large runs way too small.
I am a curvy size 10 and the large was way too tight and too short. I enjoy body con dresses and can Spanx it up with the rest of em but this was not a possibility. Had to run out and buy a dress for my night out after all because I couldn't reach anyone on the phone at RTR to send a replacement.

I wore this dress to a work holiday party - I received so many compliments! (in middle)
The dress ran small. I ordered a medium and large, as back-up. Although the medium fit, it was too short for a work function. The large gave me some extra space to dance and enjoy a few glasses of wine!

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!

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!

Much tighter than anticipated.
This dress was beautiful but in person is much more snug fitted spandex than lace, definitely better for a more formal affair than i was attending.
