Great dinner/party dress
This dress was so fun! The size 6 fit almost perfect around my 29-30" waist. If you're any bigger than 30, I would size up because it does squeeze in any fat you have back there! Being pear shaped, it was great for my body type, but I felt a little self conscious dancing around. I definitely recommend a nubra with this one unless you have great cleavage without one or don't want the ladies showing as much. So fun for the beach!

Great color and shape, but made me a little self conscious.
Rent the runway sent me this dress after my initial dress arrived with stains. I had several dresses that I would have preferred, but due to it being the last minute, sizes and styles were limited. This dress fit well and the fabric is really nice and forgiving and a beautiful color. The length was also perfect and the open back was striking. The only negative about the dress is the top - I am fairly large chested (34C) for my size (5'2'') and the peep hole was larger than I wanted for the family event. The other issue with the top was the side boob - I had to frequently go to the restroom to strap myself in. There is no support in the top of the dress, so if you need a real bra, this might not be the best choice. No bra or a backless one are your only choices (I wore a NuBra and was relieved that the lines of it didn't show - again, great fabric!). I got lots of compliments on the dress, however, so most of the issues were ones related to my comfort level.

I couldn't wear this dress. Small-busted women, be warned!
The bust of this dress didn't work for me at all. Small chested women just straight up can't make this work.

More pink than I was expecting.
The top has built in padding on the bust, however the padding felt a bit cheap and moved around so it created uneven textures over the bust. In addition, the color was much more pink than I was expecting. Suffice to say, I didn't like the dress enough to wear it out on the town. Cute back though!

Cute dress once you figured out how it was supposed to go on.
This dress is bright and fun. The backless design is whimsical. The bust area didn't work well for my 34A breasts. I'm sure B+ would look great.

This was an amazing dress! It made my night perfect
It fits perfectly. I used fabric tape and everything stayed somewhat in place (the tape came off throughout the night). Wore bone colored shoes and a golden bracelet (no necklace). It was the perfect length about mid-thigh on me (5'7"). It was sexy enough with out being flat out provocative.

Great dress!
Was not the dress I ordered but was very happy with this dress and rent the runways customer service. The only complaint I have about the dress is if you have a larger chest the side boob is a bit of an issue. Love the color and it made me look very skinny!

Fabulous dress!
This dress was sent to me as the one I originally ordered was unavailable and while I didnt choose it myself (or end up wearing it) it was a great dress that I would rent again. The cut is so flattering and the color is great. Only downside is you can't wear much of a bra (even a backless adhesive one didnt work for me), which is why I decided against wearing it.

Perfect wedding dress - not too conservative, not too boring
I recently gained a little weight and this dress was really forgiving. The dress had slits for pads which was perfect! I threw in my cup liners from my Lululemon tops.

Beautiful color but awkward fit
I did not end up wearing this dress. It looks great in all the other real life photos - but when I tried it on it was very awkward. The bottom part fit perfectly (both sizes I ordered were ok there). The issue was the top. The straps were very loose & were basically a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. Too much side boob with no support at all. I'm a on the smaller side of a C-cup bra. Disappointing!!!

Birthday!!
I rented this for my birthday and loved it! Such a fun dress. The bust felt a little big on me without a bra so I wore one of those sticky backless ones and that helped the fabric to stay.

Fun dress for the 20 somethings
I tried this dress as something different for a wedding. The top didn't fit my bust and the cut showed a little too much even for a summer wedding. Color and material were great.

The back of this dress is HOT
Fits a little small so size up for backup. I had to wear a backless bra to keep from having to much side boob, but a I'm a 36D. It took me an hour to figure out how to wear this dress, but the outcome was great! So many compliments!!

Very flattering dress!!
I wore this dress to a wedding my boyfriend was standing up to. This was a great dress! I was able to get it last minute for a wedding. The skirt was a perfect length, and I was so glad that the material was on the heavier side (it was windy and rainy out, and I had no problems with the skirt blowing). I received a ton of compliments on it! It fit great throughout, and I was able to wear it comfortably for 12 hours no problem.

My favorite rental ever!
I can't describe how flattering and gorgeous this dress is. If you have hips, a pear or hourglass this is for you! I felt chic but comfortable all at once. I'm short and a pear so I had to pin up the neck to make it fit right. But even beyond the fact I had to adjust the straps a little it made it perfect. I felt glamorous all night!!!!

Great for a summertime wine patio party.
Good fit. A little big in the bust. I thought about fashion tape, but didn't do it. The back is cool you can adjust in to different formats :)

I did not wear this dress
I tried it on and the fit was awful as other reviewers have noted. It also looks like an ice skating outfit because of the skirt. I don't recommend based on the odd fit.

This was a replacement dress, and I couldn't be happier!!
The fit was perfect. The color is a beautiful hot pink. I panicked at the rehearsal the day before the wedding I was wearing my original dress to because it was near triple digits and in the sun. Brutal!!! I realized I needed a strapless or cooler dress and this fit the bill perfectly!!! RTR sent overnight!! Compliments galore! Rent this gem!!

Gorgeous back!!!
The back of this makes the dress!!! It's a dress I wouldn't recommend a bra with due to the cutout neckline and if you're a D or larger I would skip this one. I had to use fashion tape to avoid side boob and I'm a moderate C. The flare skirt hides muffin top if you need it and the color is flawless-a wonderful bachelorette or date dress!

The fit of this dress was terrible. This is not designed for anyone with a long torso but high waist. When the waistband sat at my waist, the front sagged terribly and there was extra fabric on the straps - with no way to adjust or modify them. The way the front is cut was also weird - when I adjusted the straps to lay properly, the cleavage area was near my belly button (not cute), but hitching it up made finding the proper bra really difficult as it seemed designed to maximize side-boob. Overall, the effect was awful. Added to all that, the color seemed to have faded.

Hot little Pink dress!
This dress was great for my bachelorette party! The back was awesome & sexy and the fit and flare style and cross neck were classy & beautiful. The key hole does go pretty low if you are uncomfortable with that beware. It also has lined cups so I didn't need to wear any kind of bra.

Loved the color and unique-ness of this dress!
I typically wear a 4-6, but have experienced Nicole Miller to run small...so I originally ordered the 6 and an 8 as backup. Last minute I switched it up and got a 4 as backup based on the reviews coming in - and SOOOO glad I did (thank you RTR app for making that so easy)!!!! I am super short so having the smaller size option was great because of the straps/fit of this dress. I didn't LOVE the way it looked on me or the fit in general, but I went for it anyways! Definitely received compliments on how skinny I looked and how fun the dress is. More of a fun dress than a babe dress.

I loved the color, but the dress did not fit me properly
The top runs really large, so unfortunately, I returned it on the day I received it.

Not for a large chest!
Though the color and texture was beautiful, the fit was not. I am not that conservative, but the side boob on this was way too much for me. In order to get my chest in I had to push it towards the middle which made the cute peephole... Well, not cute. The fit everywhere else was fine so going up a size wouldn't have helped. Too scandalous for even a picture. If you're comfortable rocking some serious cleavage and side boob, you can own this! Not for me though!

Great color! Fun dress for dancing!
I LOVE this dress. The cut, the color, everything. I ordered this as a replacement and I'm glad I did. The fabric has a nice weight to it, so it has to be VERY windy to move it and no embarrassing fabric creases or "headlights" through the fabric. (This is usually a problem for me and it was cold where I wore this. But no embarrassing headlights). 2 pieces of double sided tape worked wonders to keep everything in place. This worked out so much better than my original rental would have. I got compliments all night.

Cute Color, Not for my body type unfortunately!
The dress is very cute on the hanger, but it didn't fit as well on my figure. The cross at the neck was a little constricting, and overall the dress didn't suit my body type well, so I didn't end up wearing it. I am more hourglass shaped, and I think this dress would suit more of a straight figure. The color is vibrant and the material of the dress is a nice weight and quality, but unfortunately it just didn't work out for me!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress.
This dress made me look about 10 lbs thinner. My stomach is NOT flat by any means but the flared skirt hid any potential problem areas (no spanx needed). I am a D cup so I had to purchase cups and double sided take to keep everything in check. I'd suggest taping down the straps a bit where they criss-cross.

Stylist Review
This is one of those times I hate being fuller busted. This dress is super flattering, and fun! Unfortunately it just did not work so well for me. My shoulders were a bit too small, and bust too full. The open back is awesome, but I had to size up for my chest, which made the top all too big at the shoulders. I think this dress would work for a smaller bust, so that you can go with your truest size. I had major side boob with the size 10, and I think the size 8 might be even worse up top, especially if the shoulder straps were still too long for me. There is padding in the bust, so a bra is not necessary, even if you're someone that typically must wear one, like me. I think a backless bra might help to fill out the dress more, and keep everything in place, or some fashion tape. Even though this dress was not a great fit on me, I know that it would be truly great on others, and if you're considering it, I think you should go for it!
