Beautiful!

Amazing dress with beautiful lace detail and colors that would compliment any skin tone. Wore the smaller size that I ordered. Recommend ordering the size based off your bra/top size since that is the only fitted area. The overall fit is straight down, with layers hitting below the boobs and below the hips (on me, 6 ft tall). Definitely not the dress you want if you want to show off your curves, but not boxy either. Great for dancing and tall girls that are looking for a sexy dress (sheer material from mid thigh down) but still is overall a midi length. Lots of compliments from strangers!

Beautiful lace detail- perfect for vacation!

I absolutely loved this dress! I was worried it would make me look a little heavier given the overlay on the chest and the flowiness in the rest of the dress but it really didn't (or at least it didn't feel like it). The lace detail was gorgeous and the length interesting as well. Perfect if you want a maxi type dress but don't want it to drag on the floor and want to show off your shoes! I wore it alone and under a jeans jacket to make it more casual and it could really go very easily from casual to fancy. Loved!

Stunning

Loved this dress. I wore it to dinner and felt amazingly sophisticated and chic. The top was tight so I recommend anyone with an ample chest to size up.

The lace!!!

Since I am petite, this dress was a little long for me. I loved the pattern, LOVED the lace, but the straps were too long. I had to pin them up with a safety pin so I would be covered appropriately. The fit wasn't too flattering for my figure- just straight. Overall I still loved the dress, just needed some tweaking.

This dress is breathtakingly beautiful! The lace, print, and sheerness in the layering is exquisite. I loved wearing it, and received compliments all night long. Would definitely rent again if I don't end up buying it.

Great dress

I rented this to wear to Coachella. It turned out to be the best of both worlds: dainty and pretty yet still comfortable enough for 12 hours of walking around the desert music festival. I got my normal size, and the dress was slightly big on me, though. I'm 5'4" and it was much longer on me than the model--basically a maxi dress. It was loose too, so I think I could've easily gone down a size. The straps are very long and not adjustable.

Flowy + Gorgeous

Wore this dress for an island wedding. True to size if not a bit big everywhere but the chest. Regardless, a beautiful flowy dress that pops in photos. Definitely recommend!

Mother's Day stunner!

Love, love, loved this dress by Nicholas! The lace...the sheer layers...the PEONIES. I wanted to keep it! Fit is TTS if not a little small - I am a consistent 0 (i.e. never a 2) and many designers run a little big on me - this was perfect. It looks less formal in person and can be worn for a variety of occasions; easily dressed up or down. Absolute perfection!

Beautiful details and movement!

Wore this dress for my birthday dinner. Gorgeous, flowy fabric with great lace detailing. Paired it with simple jewlery and patent leather black pumps. Received many compliments. Would rent again. Fit is slightly large so order a size down as backup.

Such a fun dress

Loved this dress, wore it to a formal wedding and received tons of compliments. I paired it with a sparkly necklace and strapped black pumps. It runs slightly large so I sized down and wore a 2. If you're busty you most likely won't be able to size down.

So classy and comfortable.

This dress was perfect. I wore it to the Preakness while working and it was flowy and comfortable. It seems shear, but the placement of the flowers are perfect. I even went without a bra.

Loved this dress. Can be dressed up or down.

Very beautiful detailing but like most Nicholas dresses, it was a tad tight in the chest area (and I have small boobs). Still was able to fit my normal size but if in between sizes, size up.

Perfect for day- to-evening wedding

I needed a dress for a co-worker's wedding that would be conservative enough but not boring. I loved this dress!! I was worried that the dress would not work with my curves but it not only fit well but was very flattering. Am already looking up Nicholas dresses that I can buy!

Really fun dress to wear. The 0 was pretty tight around my larger sized chest and the straps were a tad long but manageable. I got tons of compliments and would rent again for sure!

Very comfortable, pretty and unique ! It doesn't look like much on the rack but looks great on and in photos - only thing is the straps are a bit long so I had to tie them a bit

Light, airy, and beyond comfortable. Would wear 24/7 if possible. Could have sized down if I wanted to but I don't mind. Either way falls very nicely and moves beautifully.

Even prettier than the photo

Super feminine dress with gorgeous detail. I rented the 6 and the 8, but unfortunately I couldn't wear either. The 6 was too tight in the bust and the 8 was just too large and bulky. I think this dress would be better for a slim build, especially if long legs are included. :)

Absolutely adore this dress! It's beautiful and comfortable. Perfect for day or night. Careful if you're a little shorter. I'm 5'10" and it was a true midi length on me.

Wore this a bunch! Super cute and list of compliments! Tight around the chest area but I'm a 32DDD so keep that in mind. Very light and airy for those hot summer days. Great colors!

Pretty dress

I found that it runs a bit small around the bust. The straps were long too so I don't think a size up will fix it- may have just not been the right fit for my body type. Loved the look and would recommend for a straighter frame.

Perfect summer wedding dress

Based on other reviews, I rented the size 4 and size 6. In hindsight, I wish I had the size 2 as an option. The size 4 was very comfortable, but the straps were a bit long which made the top loose. Overall, loved this dress and would definitely recommend!

Amazing dress! Very bad zipper.

One of my favorite dresses ever! Got a ton of compliments, and the 4 was perfect. Giving 4 stars because the zipper was near impossible to close when I first put on, due to it catching on itself, not size, and it later split entirely while I was at a wedding. Would absolutely rent again if not for this issue!

Beautiful floral

This dress is gorgeous and comfortable. The lace is gorgeous and the floral print is very pretty. It is sheer all the way down and the attached lining is also quite sheer. I needed to wear and extra black shirt slip.I did not need a bra and it was fine. I tucked the straps in and wore it strapless.

RTR Team Review

Absolutely stunning dress. I wore it out at night with strapped sandals and to a work event with slides and a denim jacket. The lace is gorgeous and I received a ton of compliments. Would suggest sizing up to anyone with a chest as the top and hip area have no stretch. Would love to wear this again with heels for a casual wedding!

Everything you want in a dress. Easy, breezy, and beautiful.

It fits pretty true to size. I wear a 0-2. I wore the size 2 and could eat and drink and move all night. The dress is comfortable and beautiful. I cannot count the compliments I received.

Perfect

Beautiful dress. Rise across the chest is low, almost do not need a bra, but my strapless bra did not show. Super comfortable overall fit. Slip only goes to knee so from the knee on the dress is sheer, which is my favorite part!

Gorgeous!

Loved this dress! Gorgeous and comfortable. Compliments all night. Very photogenic. Fit very true to size. Thin straps were a little big but it wasn't a deal breaker. Helps if you're busty to fill out the dress, otherwise I can see it being too big. Was able to wear a strapless bra with no issue.

Beautiful dress, and fun to wear! Moves when you walk in a pretty way, flattering cut. Fit my (small) chest perfectly without a bra, people who are larger up top may need to size up.

Unique, lots of compliments.

Best for taller people- neckline hangs low (straps are long on top) and shorter people might get swallowed up in material/length.

I loved the color and material of this dress. Everyone was giving me compliments. I'm typically a little top heavier in the bust than most so the fit was smaller than expected. If the dress was available in a larger size it would have been a 5 star for me.

In love with this dress

I rented this for a summer wedding and it could not have been more perfect. The dress is so classy and elegant but still comfortable and fun. I'm usually a size 2 and the 2 fit perfectly. I received compliments all night. I was so sad to send it back!
