The 6 was tight and I usually wear a 4 or 6.
I didn't end up wearing it.

I felt great in this dress!
I received so many compliments on this dress. It was definitely a little tight but hugged my body in the right places so it was still flattering. This dress made me feel sexy and beautiful at the same time. I would love to wear this dress again.

Loved the back!
This dress was great, but I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars because of the fit. Typically I wear a 4/6 but tried on this size 8 and found it to be very small and tight especially in the hip area. I recommend getting your true size and a size up to ensure fit in the waist/hip area. In my image the back straps are loose, but I think that is because of the size 8 that I wore. I believe going up one size for me would have been perfect. I loved the cut out in the front and thought the back made this really edgy. Also, I would recommend an adhesive bra as any other undergarment would show!

Bold color, simple, well-cut dress.
Fit runs a little small but was fine zipping up. Not a lot of room for food in this dress! Wore a Nu Bra which worked perfectly. Got tons of compliments. Sad to send this back!

I loved this dress, the color was perfect!
The bust was a little big and loose, if you can go down a size (and it wont be too tight on the legs) go for it!

not for short waisted
This dress didn't fit my body type at all. When pulled down to waist, the top seated much lower than on the model. The back was very loose and also hung very low. Had to return

Breathtakingly sexy showstopper.
Wow. As a guy told me, he stopped in his tracks when he saw this dress. It's incredible. Thick material is comfy but it's very streamlined -- you might want light spanx for a really smooth fit. I was able to go braless (I'm a 34D) & the girls looked great. I typically wear a 6 or 8 & the 10 was perfect, so keep that in mind.

Very sexy, needs a backless bra
Snug, stretchy fabric. Runs a bit small, but similar sizing to other dresses from the same brand. If you are flat chested this will make you look even flatter, so do wear a backless padded bra. I improvised this part -- I wore my usual strapless bra and just tucked the back of the bra into the dress, and it worked well.

Amazing dress! The color and fit were perfect.
The hips do fit tight as other reviewers have said but it's still easy to sit and dance in. I wore a 10 which is the same size dress I typically wear. But I would get a size up as your backup size. Received many compliments on this dress. Highly recommended!

Sexy yet classy dress with great wowww factor!
This dress runs small and I had to wear the size 2! The fabric is thicker and was hugging my body in all the right places. The top was a little bit loose but I wore my Braza bra and it work out perfectly! The back of this dress is gorgeous. I wore the dress for a romantic date with my boyfriend and he loved it. It was comfortable enough to walk and dance in. I would highly recommend!

Show stopping cut and color for Fashion Week Finale!
This dress definitely runs small. The 6 wasn't available so I took a gamble by getting the 4. It was tighter fitting than I would normally be comfortable with, but considering that you can't wear a bra, it worked. This dress is an attention grabber for sure!

Beautiful dress, but awkward fit
I rented this for a formal event, but unfortunately didn't feel comfortable wearing it because of how tight it was. I have had no problem with other dresses in the same size, but event the size 2 was a bit too close for comfort.

Rented this for a party but did not end up wearing it as the cut wasn't meant for my body. Loved the color and the fabric was thick. The back detailing was beautiful. Being 5'2 and large busted the dress seemed to pucker in odd places.

The dress was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I wish I could've kept it!
The dress was perfect. I ordered a 4 and a 6, I'm usually a 4, but it was super tight, so I ended up wearing the 6. The chest looks a bit funny in the picture because I'm pushed up against someone, but it really looked beautiful. It had just the right amount of cutouts so that it didn't look like it was too showy, but was still super sexy. Loved it!

An ideal red dress
definitely runs small, but I felt like there was a bit too much fabric in some areas in the larger size. stretchy fabric. Overall, a great dress. I'm very tall (6'), and it was still an appropriate length, so that was a plus.

Showstopper in Vegas!
I rented this hot little red number for my bachelorette party in Vegas. It seriously fits like a glove, and shows off your curves while keeping you tucked in due to the material. I didn't wear a bra, and the top accentuates the cleavage and holds the boobies up without any help. It is one of my favorites I've ever rented!

Feeling pretty in red!
This dress was a nice mid-length sheath that fits very form fittingly. If you want to hide anything (especially in the stomach area) this is not the dress for you. I am comfortable in form fitting dresses, so the snug fit didn't bother me. Overall true to size. The only issue with the dress is that it tended to ride up and hide the cut out (hence the reason why you cannot see it in this picture). Overall comfortable fit, but somewhat loose in the back and breast area (I think it was a little stretched out from previous wears). The color was also slightly faded due to several wears as well. But a very nice dress! I would recommend it for a more clubbing/girls night out event, as the caged back is very va-va-voom!

Runs SO small!
I have worn Nicole Miller before and usually needed a 0 or 2! I ordered the 4 because I read that it ran small, and I *maybe* could have gotten away with it, but definitely would not have been comfortable. The dress is very cute, but the material does not stretch at all. I ended up returning it to the store in vegas and getting something else. I definitely recommend sizing up quite a bit.

Tight Red Dress!
This dress runs small around the body but the back is normal. I wore the size 4 and could barely breath in the front, but it came a little loose in the back cut-out design. Also, the dress doesn't look as low cut on the model. It was very tight around the chest so it pushed my boobs way up. That was okay for a night out in Vegas but I probably would not have worn this dress at home. But in Vegas this dress felt awesome. It stood out as a red dress should! It is very form fitting and eye turning. I would rent again!

Runs way small
I couldn't even put this dress on. I'm normally a 10 so I ordered both the 10 and the 12 as I read prior reviews on the dress running small. I couldn't even attempt to get in the 10 and while I got the 12 over my head and chest, I couldn't pull it over my hips. If you've got hips, you should order 1-2 sizes up as the skirt is very tight.

The top on the dress was way too big for my cup size. The fit is tight and sexy, but not comfortable for a night of partying and dancing.

I didn't get to wear it, I rented this for my birthday.
Yes I have hips and a larger bust, but I'm usually a size 4/6, however this dress definitely runs small. I couldn't begin to get the dress to fit correctly and comfortably. As a result. The bottom was too tight and the top too loose. I'd rent this dress again but in a larger size.

I got compliments all night in this. It hurt to give back.
The dress fit well and true to size. I wore Spanx shorts to keep the lines smooth. The straps in the back were a little long for me, but someone slightly taller or with a longer torso would be fine and it didn't cause any problems with the overall look.

Size way up ladies!!!
I'm a size 6, size 6 wasn't available so I got an 8 and just because it was available and on a whim I got the sz 10 back up size... I couldn't zip the 8 and it was a struggle to even pull it on over my head. The 10 fit... I've never worn a 10 in my life before this! It looked great though. The fabric is very stretchy the cut is just small. The center back vertical strap is too long. I pinned it at the top. Hot dress, good if you're busty like me.

Sexy red dress!!
So many compliments. It's tight, but comfortable a and figure-flattering for my straight athletic body. I ditched my bra and it was great. Probably chicken cutlets are best. My bra had stickies and it just wasn't fitting right. This dress was so much fun! Another RTR success!

This was an emergency option and I think it was better than my initial choice!!!!
The fit was 99% perfect. I'm 5'2 and 135lbs with a heavy backside and it fit amazingly in the booty and hips. However , blowing short the back gaped a little on the straps. No biggie though. I love this dress!

Dancing the night away!
This dress was gorgeous! This was my first Rent the Runway experience and I was very pleased! My fiancé's reaction when he saw me walk out wearing this lovely dress was, "Whoa, you look super hott." After that, I knew it was the perfect dress for the event! It was quite tight around my thighs, but I think it fit the way it should have; it's a body-clinging dress that should hug all of your curves. I ordered the 4 and back up size 6, but since the 6 wasn't available, I had to go with the size 4. I think the 6 would have been too big on top (since the straps don't adjust at all), so it worked out really well they were able to send the smaller size! Even though this was a body-hugging dress, it was still classy enough to wear to a wedding reception. I would definitely wear it out to a club/other special event because it is also sexy with the back being open. I was able to wear a red bra without anyone noticing it wasn't part of the dress. Any other color bra that wasn't the exact shade of the dress could not be worn, so I recommend going bra-less with this one if you can. I also recommend a good pair of spanx to make sure you're all tucked in, and they also help to keep the dress from riding up. To sum this dress up, it was a big hit and everyone commented on how great it looked on! I would definitely rent this one again!!

Beautiful and sexy but tight!!
It's tight and hugs the midsection well! I wore the 4 and felt great in it but thought a 6 would have been more comfortable especially when sitting down. It's sexy and sophisticated but will show off your curves, so if that's not in your comfort zone this dress isn't for you!!

So many compliments!
This was the first dress I have rented from RTR and I couldn't have been happier with it! I got so many compliments all night and felt like a million bucks. It is a snug fit though! I rented the 4 and 6 and ended up wearing the 4 because it fit better in the chest. I don't have a large bust so the 6 was too baggy up top despite fitting more comfortably everywhere else. My only complaint was that the dress had a small pull in one of the front seams, but it didn't stop me from wearing it. Overall, it is the perfect dress that is both classy and sexy.
