The PERFECT Dress!
This is my all time favorite dress from rent the runway! It rented this dress to wear on my birthday and received so many compliments! The dress does run small, I had to go up a size. I wish I could own this dress!!

Knockout in Red!
I usually wear an 8. I have several other Nicole Miller Dresses that are similar material in a size 8, but for some reason this dress ran small. The next size up RTR had in stock was a 12. It fit really well, and I got so many compliments. The fabric is stretchy which made it very easy to dance in. I would definitely recommend renting this dress, but again would advise ordering a size or two up.

Perfect dress
I wore this for my bachelorette party and I felt amazing in it. I am usually a size 10 but the 12 fit perfectly. I am a 36DDD and didn't even have to wear a bra.

Definitely not for the large-chested. I'm a 36A, so it worked great for me. I love the color and cut. I got a ton of compliments.

This dress was the perfect shade of red, and also comfortable to dance in!
I'm usually a 4 but I wore a 6 so that I wouldn't feel like a sausage in a casing. It was difficult to wear a bra with the dress because of the cutouts in the front and back, so I went braless. I wish it had a built-in bra because the dress fit me well but the chest area was not a snug as I would've liked it. It was still a lovely dress for a wedding and I would definitely rent it again!

I rented this for a dress-to-impress night with my Salsa dance club. Worked perfectly!
The fit of this dress is very snug but it did fit true to size. Since I am so tall it was definitely several inches above my knees, as you can see in the photos, making this a mid-thigh length dress. The straps in the back didn't lay flat, but I didn't mind this as I had full range of motion which as a dancer is more important to me. Definitely spent a lot of the night pulling the dress down, but I chalk this up to more my highly physical demands due to the salsa dancing.. I think if you were just getting down at the club, or standing around a lot or even sitting, it probably wouldn't trouble you much. The cut-out in the front of the dress was very comfortable and didn't gape at all, which made the dress very fun and edgy without oversharing, lol. I wore a Victoria's Secret t-back lattice strap bra, since my boobs definitely looked better with a little lift. The bra did show in the back, but due to the fun party atmosphere it worked just fine. You could absolutely go without a bra, there is plenty of coverage and shape built into the bodice, I just preferred more oomph.. 10 out of 10, would rent again, or buy when it is retired. ;)

ABSOLUTE KNOCKOUT!
This dress absolutely was a hit! I wore it for a wedding in New Orleans. Everyone loved it! Hugged in all the right places. It was a little on the snug side, so if you may want to order a size up. Perfect balance of sexy and classy!

Would Definitely Rent Again!
This dress was really easy to move in and I found very comfortable. Fit wise the chest had a slight gap if I wasn't sitting/standing upright, the dress length I found perfect, and I had no issues with the length of the straps in the back of the dress. I'd definitely recommend and rent again!

Flattering but loose straps in back
The dress is snug but thick enough that it didn't look bad. The only thing is that if you get a bigger size so it's not as tight, the back straps are loose. There were no backup sizes available so I made do with the bigger size. I'm not sure if a size smaller would have fit comfortably or not. Aside from that, it was a flattering dress that made me feel stunning at my birthday dinner.

A must rent!
This dress is amazing! I'm usually a size 2 and ordered a 2 and 6 since a 4 wasn't available. The 6 was too big and I somehow managed to squeeze into the 2, so definitely go one size up! There isn't much stretch to the material but it is so flattering! This was definitely one of my favorite rentals.

Had to pull down so the straps in the back didn't move. Wasn't too hard. I looked great!

Beautiful, head-turning dress!
This dress received a lot of attention in Las Vegas, and not just because it was my birthday! I used others' advice to size up, and ended up wearing the larger dress. It still fit like a glove; thank goodness for spanx! I didn't need a bra either, and being a 34DDD that rarely happens. (My profile won't update, but otherwise, I'm 5'10", and usually a size 10 in dresses). But I felt beautiful, sexy, and classy, and received many compliments!

Wore this for my 10 year high school reuinion & got the exact desired reaction.
It was a little touch & go with the zipper for a minute which I think was a combination of the zipper and my body. I definitely think that a size 8 was the way to go and a 10 maybe would have been too loose around my tatas, which would have resulted in a nip slip. You can't tell by this picture but there's more or less no option of wearing a bra - even my backless, strapless one would have shown in the back. Also, Spanx were a must, but that would have probably been true with any dress I wore. The last time these people saw me I was 17 and 30lbs heavier so I got a LOT of, "You look great!"s all night, which I didn't hate. Loved this dress!

Nice sexy dress
For me, the dress was super super tight in the bottom while not quite tight enough in the bust. But it still fit well and I received lots of compliments. I might even rent this dress again in the future. If you're an athletic (e.g. Big butt) size 6, you should only get this dress if you're comfortable showing off your assets. And you should definitely go up a size.

Great head turning dress!
I'm always hesitant to order dresses online because I almost always have to try them on. I have a broad back and athletic build so it is difficult to find a good fit. I range from a size 6 to a size 10 depending on the material and style of the dress. Based on other reviews I ordered a size 8 with backup size 10. The 10 was not available so RTR sent me a different dress in size 10. I didn't like that one so if the 8 didn't fit I would have been SOL. Miraculously it fit like a glove! I don't normally go sans bra but the material was thick enough that I could. The open back/straps allowed for extra room for my shoulders and the rest was snug but very comfortable. I was able to dance up a storm and celebrate my birthday as the lady in red. Loved this dress!

Va-va-voom!
This dress was definitely an attention-grabber! Very fitted, I actually could have probably gotten away with a 10R, because the 8 was a bit snug, except for in the bust. I wear a 34C with about a 38 inch measure around my chest. I have about a 31-inch waist and 40-inch hips and am 5'5", for better reference. This was a very fun and sexy dress for a formal rehearsal dinner.

I wore this to take my boyfriend out in the city for dinner. I almost wish I ordered a size larger as it was SO TIGHT FITTING. It felt painted on to my body! It is a sexy, stunning dress and I felt gorgeous in it! Would rent it again (one size up though!)

Beautiful dress - not for busty ladies!
I didn't wear this dress, but the cut was beautiful. Unfortunately, the previous renter damaged my size (8) and the size 6 was too tight up top for me to get the zipper closed. Had my chest been a 32 instead of a 36, we would've been in business. Would definitely recommend the dress for it's unique cutout and stunning color. Wish I could've worn it!

Stand out dress
Very different from what everyone else was wearing, which is always nice. The only thing I didn't like about this dress, and I think this is just how I'm built (big bust small shoulders), were the straps. Essay too big and I felt like I had no support and was adjusting a lot throughout the night.

I wore this to my sorority's date party and it was absolutely fabulous
It runs a little tight so I suggest getting your normal size and then the size bigger just in case. It's a really great dress and was so much fun to wear, I still get compliments about it and I wish that I owned it. Definitely recommend.

Effortlessly sexy
For starters - I'm 5'5, 128-135lbs, usually a size 4. Athletic with 34D bust and big butt. 37-27-39. This dress was PERFECT. As with all Nicole Miller dresses, go up one size. I didn't need a bra, it was a lovely thick fabric, and the cutouts in front and back were great for a little added scandal. If you have a big butt, you're gonna get that waist wrinkle where it slides up as you move, but it still looks good. I'm going to be purchasing this dress.

The bright red was awesome! The cut was perfectly hugging so that I didn't need a bra being a 34DDD.
If I had the chance I would order petite if there was one. I am just under 5 3" so I had to use safety pins to make the straps shorter. I made it look better than what the picture shows. We were still getting ready in our hotel room when this picture was taken. I danced all night and felt like a diva celebrating our bachelorette and Bolivia's Independence Day in D.C. If your short like me, remember the safety pins. Sexy and sassy, I highly recommend!

Perfection for a night out in Vegas!
It fit so well! I hover between a 4 and a 6 and there is no way I could have gotten my hips in a four. I will say it had plenty of room up top so if you're in the A/B cup range, you may have some trouble feeling like you fill it out- but no one I talked to noticed! Overall, I would recommend this dress. It was perfect, the back was beautiful and the only downside was having to return it!

Fit perfectly! Great dress for a summer wedding!
I was having trouble finding a dress that fit my body shape (tiny on top with wide hips), but this dress fit like a glove! It was extremely flattering and the smaller size (I usually wear a 2, but ordered a 4 as my backup size) fit perfectly - I received so many compliments! The only thing was that the back detailing might not lay flat against your back the entire time.

Lady in red
Hot hot hot!! Loved this dress so much. It fit perfectly, I wore the smaller size rented because I am a 32DDD and I didn't want to wear a sticky bra. It was perfect. Kept the girls contained but showed just enough cleavage. Lots of compliments, totally body hugging and sexy. I loved the strappy back (also the reason for no bra, it comes down low in the back and on the sides). Wore with black Louboutins and just rocked the night. Would totally rent again or purchase this dress.

Loved this dress! Sexy, flattering and comfortable!
DEFINITELY order a size bigger than you think you are. I don't think I've ever worn anything bigger than a 6, and there was absolutely zero way that was fitting on my body so I ended up wearing an 8. It's also a thicker fabric that wouldn't be the most comfortable in the heat of the summer. Otherwise, I loved it. Sexy, flattering in all the right places. Wore it to my birthday dinner and was so happy and comfortable!!

Outdoor wedding
The dress was very tight around the hips and loose across the bust. I didn't wear a bra and was relatively comfortable. A back up size was not available, but I think I would have worn the size 6 anyways because it gets more roomy the longer you wear it.

So many compliments!
Loved this dress! I received so many compliments and everyone wanted to know where I got it! Material was thick enough where you didn't need to wear a bra (the dress has an open back anyway). Great color, exactly as pictured in the novel. Just as a heads up, it is very tight fitting. I would recommend having your back up size be a size up rather than down. Also, the straps in the back were very unique and fun, but a little long and not adjustable so when you stand with good posture the middle strap kind of loosened out but I still loved the dress! Would definitely recommend!

Very fitted
I was able to get this dress on. It seemed to work up top but it was very tight around my hips and thighs. I felt like I would stretch it badly if I sat down. I do have a very hourglass body with a very small waist and a large top and bottom. Aside from the fit, I was not fond of the material. It didn't feel luxurious but any means. This dress would be great for some but I didn't wear it out due to the fit.

Gorgeous dress
This dress is so pretty but the fit is tricky. If you have any butt at all it's quite tight and I am pretty small in the bust and I had a LOT of extra room. Spanx and a push up nu-bra did the trick, but as mentioned before the straps in the back are pretty big. I ordered a 2 and a 4 and the 4 fit better on the bottom but it was so so big on top it just wouldn't work. Over all tho it was fun to wear

Rented this dress for a photo shoot. It does run small, I usually wear a size 2 and got the 4 after reading all the reviews. The 4 fits like a glove. I would rent this dress again.

Fits tight only because the material isn't very stretchy, I could have been more comfortable in a size up but the dress was gorgeous- everyone was complimenting it!
