Loved this dress! Wish I could keep it! Loved the fit, love the bow, which looks more like the one in this picture: http://www.bergdorfgoodman.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml;jsessionid=M4LXHVB44Z5XICQAAKPRPVI?itemId=prod58310297&ecid=BGALRJ84DHJLQkR4&ci_src=14110925&ci_sku=T2Y5U Wore it to several holiday parties and received many compliments throughout the night.

This dress is simply put - amazing! I am typically a 4 on top and a 6 on bottom, but the 4 worked for me. The bow is definitely big, but I wore the dress to a holiday party and received a ton of compliments. I didn't want to send it back!

Gorgeous dress, but I couldn't wear either of the sizes that I ordered (4 and 6). I typically wear a 4 in Tibi, DVF, Theory, and Trina Turk, and knew that Milly often runs small. I couldn't even zip up the 6 in this style. To note: the dress is SHORT. In other photos on Net A Porter, the dress is shown as knee-length. It's not - it's truly mid-thigh, and I'm 5'4" on a good day. Also, another reviewer mentioned the size of the bow. It really is almost comically big.

When I first tried it on, the bow looked way way too big but I warmed up to it. Loved the fit and was definitely figure flattering. I wear either a 4 and a 6 and both fit. Wore it with big gold earrings and nude stockings on NYE. Several people told me I looked like a Christmas present which I took as a compliment.

I felt like a million bucks without having to spend a ton of money! I received so many compliments the whole night! Thank you RTR!
I absolutely loved the dress. I didn't want to give it back! I wore it to a New Years party and received so many compliments. Everyone thought it was so unique and loved the big bow--very carrie bradshaw as everyone said. As far as the fit goes, it definitely runs true to its size. Very figure flattering, it made my waist look so tiny! The length of the dress is perfect, just short enough. But its such a comfortable dress. It was so easy to dance in! I wasn't fidgeting or adjusting the dress at any point of the night. A great dress to rent for those special occasions!

I love this dress! I am short and was worried about it being too long but it was perfect and fell around 3 inches above my knee. I could not have asked for a better New Year Eve's dress. The bow is big but made the dress fun and flirty! This dress is great...even on smaller girls!!

Awesome dress! You can't tell from the pictures here, but the bow is HUGE. I usually wear a 2 or 4, so I got both and ended up wearing the 2. It was definitely fitted and relatively short but I got a ton of compliments!

I wear a size 6 in most dresses. I normally go up a size in Milly to an 8, but needed the 10 on the bottom. the Bottom is a very straight fit. I ordered the 8 & the 10 and although the 8 zipped...it was a little snug. I am only 5'2 and the dress was short...mid thigh. I wore it to a February wedding with tights and heels...got a TON of compliments. The bow is VERY large...but totally made it a fun party dress.

The fit was really nice, its a pretty thick material. But, the bow is huge. I had ordered 2 dresses and I'm happy I had another option, because I this dress looked ridiculous.

This dress runs true to size-if not just a little snug. It is also very short! Do not pay attention to other pictures of it on other sites online. This dress is a mini-dress and was very short on me (I'm 5'2''). I got tons of compliments, but was a little worried about it riding up throughout the night.

Mine was definitely the most unique dress of the night. People could not stop talking about it!
This dress was great! Everyone loved it! I found that it ran a bit small and I actually ended up wearing the larger of the two sizes. Its pretty short, but I think the picture acurately shows the length. The cut and fabric make it figure forgiving if you have a tummy, but for me that was a problem b/c I have a small waist and large bust, so I did not fit me tight enough around the waist and I looked a little bit bigger than I actually am. That being said, I am probably the only person that noticed and I got praises all night for the outfit!

This dress is fun! I am tall so it was rather short on me but it still was great (just didnt sit down all that much). The bow is LARGE (more so than it is in the picture). I loved it personally! This dress is a statement piece for sure. I wore my hair up and some gold heels and had a blast at a friend's wedding. The dress does have a definite waist line that you might not notice in the picture. This was good for me because I am straight so it gave some shape. Great dress!

I loved this dress! To be honest I was really nervous about the size of the bow at first but then I realized, the bow is what makes the dress! Renters of this dress must embrace the bow! I got many compliments on this dress and was very sad to return it! Love it.

This dress is definitely a good one to rent because it is too much of a statement dress to actually invest in! Dress was quite short and I went with the bigger size that I ordered. this dress is a lot of fun but if you're tall, tights are a must!

When my boyfriend said I was the best Christmas present he'd ever seen. (In reference to the large bow).
I wore this dress to a Children's Hospital benefit and received so many compliments. I know people have commented about the size of the bow, but I LOVED it! Great dress!

I wore this dress to a friend's wedding and got more compliments that evening than any dress I've worn before. I felt very trendy and stylish.
This dress fit me great. It is very well made and sturdy. The bow didn't feel too big on me. It is a reasonable size but it is was makes the dress so incredible and the reason to rent it. I found the sizing true to fit. The dress was very comfortable, too.

Perfect dress, perfect fit, loved it!
When I first recieved this dress I was a little put off by the huge bow, but after I went out and bought sheer black tights and paired it all off with my shiny black White House Black Market heels I fell in love! This dress was a hit at my companys Winter formal, soooo many compliments all night! We went to a restaurant before the formal and literally all eyes were on me. The huge bow is gorgeous and the dress is a darker navy blue then what is pictured with a beautiful gold print. VERY comfortable and well made, easy to dance in, doesn't need any accessories with it since the bow really stands out!

I usually wear a size 6 in Milly, very short, don't usually wear hose or tights but needed with this dress and I am only 5'4", the bow is awesome, but big so if you don't like big bows you won't like this dress!!

Huge hit!
I got compliments on this dress all night long at a formal christmas party. the size 8 was a little on the tight side but it looked fantastic and was comfortable. Very flattering on top which is difficult for me as a DD! Loved it so much I would consider buying this dress - but worked out perfectly for a rental!

I've never worn a dress that had such well made fabric! It was so comfortable!
I wore this dress for a Cocktail date party! Loved the dress, I wore a size 4 and it was a little large in the top. The length was perfect! The bow is big but it's so so cute!! I got many compliments and definitely didn't want to send the dress back! The Black dress is from Rent The Runway too. It's a Halston Heritage dress.

Fun Statement Dress!
This was a really unique party dress and the bow was very fun to play with all night! I wore it with black tights and fun heels (like the pic). I went out and bought big fake-gold studs the day of the event to wear with it and really well. If I did this again I would invest more time in experimenting with a fun up-do for my hair. I usually wear at size 4, but I got 2 sizes and ended up wearing the 6 so I could sit down comfortably (and without flashing anyone).

The RTR team sent a New Years eve party hat with the dress... their attention to detail is amazing! and there dresses are too!
I wore this on New years ever and I feel in love with this dress. The dress is mad of such amazing material and it fit like a glove! I felt so special in this dress and the bow is a show stopper i loved it!

Perfect NYE dress!
This dress was fantastic! I wore it for a New Year's Eve event with my boyfriend and got a ton of compliments. I am 5'0 and typically have to wear petite sizes because in addition to being short, I have a short torso. Fortunately for me, this fit just fine! It was snug but fit without being unforgivingly tight. It fit me perfectly through the bust (I'm a 34B) and across the hips. The fabric is thicker than I was anticipating, which was nice for a chilly winter evening. As other reviewers have said, the bow is in actuality a lot larger than I was anticipating, but I thought it gave the dress a little something extra. I wore the dress with sheer black tights and black ultra high heels. I curled my hair with the plan to wear it down but ended up pulling it back before we left because it was just too much on me with the big bow. All in all, a great rental! Would definitely rent this again in the future.

Felt so great in this dress...all eyes were definitely on me!
The dress was fun and festive! I wore it on New Years Eve and received so many compliments. I would have gave it 5 stars if the fit was perfect, but I had some issues zipping it up. I usually wear a size 6 so I rented 6 and 8. Had to go with the 8... I recommend if you are top heavy to go one size up.

Loved wearing this Milly dress! Felt so glamorous all night and of course no one had the same dress :)
I rented this dress for a formal NYE event. This dress was so beautiful and fit like a glove! I typically wear between a 0 and a 2 so I rented both sizes and ended up wearing the 0. I received compliements all night and my date loved it :) This was my second RTR and I can't wait to rent again!

I was told I look like "the Ringleader of Awesome."
This is my first time renting from RTR, so it's entirely possible that it's not so much that this dress runs large, but that I won't be able to fit into anything well. I generally wear a 0 and in some very rare cases, a 2. It fit me fine in the bust and hip area but the waist was extremely baggy and not very flattering. The excess material made it seem like I had a belly bulge. I wound up wearing it, anyway, because I just didn't care all that much and wasn't in the mood to figure something else out at the last minute, but I was disappointed in the fit. The dress itself was of a very forgiving and heavy material, which is perfect for winter parties. The bow certainly made a statement and my top hat lent the final punctuation. The pockets were an inspired touch and I wound up making use of them to mask the weird fit. I made the best of it and received a lot of compliments, but I'm hesitant to rent my size from this designer again.

Bowed Over
I wore this dress for New Year's Eve and got SO many compliments! The giant bow was definitely a conversation starter. The dress fit me fairly well, but was a little loose on top. I went bra-less and just taped it down, which worked ok. I loved the way the back was cut because it made me look bootylicious. The only thing I didn't like were the little pockets in the front. The placement of them was weird and I think the dress would have been better off without them. Overall though, a fun dress. I was sad to send it back!

I wore this to my friend's winter wedding with tights and it was perfect. I did not think that the bow was too large, like other reviews. It adds to the dress. I would rent it again!

Perfect holiday party dress!
I rented this dress for a black tie party in Manhattan last November. It was SO CUTE and I received so many compliments! My friend actually rented it the next weekend for a wedding! The bow is probably my favorite part of the dress. I'm a girly girl, but this bow is not too big, its just the right amount of "UMPH" without looking ridiculous.

Loved!
Absolutely loved this dress. I had a wedding to go to, months after I had a baby... so wasnt very comfortable in my skin! This dress was a little short, but I did wear tights with it... Also it sucked me in and made me look smooth and slim. Got so many compliments! Was a little scared of the bow, because it is large, but so worth it!

I wasn't able to wear the dress because I didn't end up being able to attend the event. I so wish I would have though! This dress was so beautiful. I LOVED the bow personally and I thought the colors of the dress was so beautiful. The material was very structured and quality.
