Beautiful dress, but ran very small.
This was a replacement dress that I didn't end up wearing because it was so small around the hips. Beware to pear shaped women! Order a size up. Beautiful dress though. The fabric was heavy duty. Clearly a nice quality. Lovely color.

Beautiful, but too short.
I ordered this when I found out my first choice dress was not going to be available. I was in love with the color - deep emerald green. The dress fit perfectly, but my one complaint is that I thought it was too short. According to RTR, the regular length was 58" and the long length was 61". When I measured the dress, it was only 58". I contacted RTR and they told me that is was the Long?? I am 5'9" and with 2 inch heels and I thought it was too short. I ended up wearing my back up. Aside from that the dress is beautiful. Fabric is very good quality and it fit true to size. I agree with other reviews, that this is better for narrow hips.

Not recommended for Tall girls
The color and make of the dress is very pretty! I highly recommend this dress for those under 5'7". I did order a long but it was still a couple inches off the ground in bare feet.

Beautiful dress in a gorgeous and elegant color! I felt amazing and got tons of compliments!
Absolutely gorgeous dress that I wore to a black tie wedding. The color is exactly what I was looking for, and it fit like a glove. I ordered both the 10R and the 12R as my back up size, but ended up wearing the 12R because there was a little bit more breathing room and the length worked better with my 3 1/2 inch heels. The only con I had was that the straps were too long and kept falling off of my shoulders if I slouched even a little. I do, however, have an extremely short torso, so this is commonly a problem I have with any dress I try on. Anyone with a normal length torso shouldn't have this same problem. Otherwise, the dress was fabulous, and I would totally wear it again!

Loved it!
Pros: Beautiful dress! I loved the color and fit for my body type. There was enough room at the top to fit me (34F) with some maneuvering. I didn't wear a bra but the dress was well structured and tight enough to where I didn't need one and everything was in place just fine. I was teetering between getting a 10L, but that would've been too large for me at the waist/hips. Cons: The back part is low, so I would have needed a backless bra for the dress, which is difficult with a larger bust. I ordered a long, which was still short on me flat footed (I'm 5'10")

A Very Regal Dress
This dress was so beautiful! It was a snug fit, and way shorter than I would have liked. I'm 5'10" and even in flats, the 12L was 2" off the floor. It is low cut, so perhaps not recommended for the particularly busty. I was self-consciously tugging at it the whole night. That being said however, the dress was well-constructed and truly stunning.

The color and lace detailing was absolutely perfect for a Hollywood Glam Christmas Party!
I ordered an 8L since I am 5'9" and know I am a size 8 from past experience with dresses. The dress itself fit great! It made my body look wonderful as well. The ONLY down side is the fact that this dress ran short. Even ordering a Long size - the dress still showed off my flats since the bottom couple of inches is lace-only and see through. I tried it on with heels, but you could see everything from the ankle down, and I did not love that look or my heels enough to showcase them like that. I would say, if you are my height or over... this is not really the dress for you unless you are OK with your feet showing in a "long" gown.

Felt so elegant and so beautiful!!! Stunning cut!
The dress complimented my curves like a glove. I felt so sexy and beautiful. Simple back, beautiful v neck line. Did not need to wear a bra - and that is saying a lot because I have 34 DDs! I was in between the 12 & the 10 - but opted to wear the 12 since I felt more comfortable in it. Length did not touch the floor - which I preferred since I had gorgeous velvet pumps to show off! Wouldn't change a thing about this dress! Such a trendy color right now - I was obsessed!!!

Elegant, Stunning, and Flattering- The Perfect Formal Event Winter Dress!
Pros: Fit is typical for a size 2, Could wear a regular bra, color is flattering and cut is slimming, high quality fabric (lace). Cons: The only con was that as someone who is 5'5, I could only wear minimal heels in a regular fit. Usually I like to wear 4 inch heels, but with this dress I was wearing 1 inch. I wore this dress to a White House Holiday Party and found it to be beautiful and festive without being over the top showy. I would rent it again and have raved about the designer, dress, and Rent the Runway experience ever since!

I wore this as a bridesmaids dress to a wedding.
Beautiful color, flattering fit, great quality- would definitely recommend! I'm a little over 5'8" and wore 2.5" heels and the long was great (not too short, as some of the reviews mentioned, but it definitely would have been if I hadn't ordered the long). I'm 36-26-39 and the size 4L was perfect. My first-choice dress ended up not being available (not what you want to hear 2 days before a wedding where you really need a specific color and style), but RtR was very prompt and helpful with getting me this great dress as a backup. I'm not sure I'd do RtR again for an event for which I needed a really specific dress for that reason, but I'd definitely rent from them again and I couldn't have asked for better customer service in sending me a backup

I ordered this dress for a formal event. It fit perfect! I would recommend this dress.
Based on the reviews of the other women, I ordered size 4 (normal dress size), but in the long so I could wear heels (I'm 5'4"). It worked out perfect. I was able to wear a bra but needed a little tape to keep the straps from showing in the back.

I loveeeeeeeed this dress!!!!
I usually wear a 0 in dresses so I was a little nervous that it would fit big and RTR was sold out of the 0L and 0R. The straps were a little big and fell down a few times during the night but wasn't anything that was noticeable. Overall I loved the dress and would recommend the dress! This was my 3rd time renting from here for this same occasion in the past three years! I've never been let down! Looking forward to next year's experience as well!!!

Great dress, lots of compliments.
Loved the dress, although it definitely runs short. I don't consider myself to me extremely tall at 5'7", but the long barely touched the floor when I was barefoot.

Wore this to a New Years eve party and got lots of compliments.
Looking back, this dress looked way better in person than in the photos. The lace and trim is really detailed, which got lost with camera flashes. The other reviews are right when they say that the dress runs shorter than most gowns. I am barely 5'3'' and the regular just came to the very top of my shoe, so if you're any taller you should probably go for the long. There is a non-elastic band which hits right below your bust/on top of your ribs that I wish was elastic. It makes it pretty uncomfortable if you have to wear the dress all night. I liked the material and I felt great in the dress, but I wore this on a New Years eve night and had to go back to my room and change before dancing began.

Classy, flirty, and fun all at the same time!
The dress was well lined so I didn't have to wear spanx, but the main issue was the length. I wore flats with a 4L and it was still a little short. Other than that, the dress fit like a glove and was so much fun to wear! The color is a great, deep green.

Simple but beautiful!
This was my backup dress. I had tried it at the Georgetown store during my fitting appointment and surprisingly both the color and style fit me like a glove, therefore decided to order it as my backup dress. 48 hours prior the arrival of my main dress RTR customer service notified me via email that my main dress was no longer available. RTR gave me the option to select from 5 other dresses and knowing that Nicole Miller designs fit me I decided for another Miller dress. The dresses arrived on time, although used, this one was in very good conditions (lace, zipper and chest area) and nicely packed. UPS delivered the bag to my front door. For this designer the fit is true to size, it is form fitting but not uncomfortable. It does not pinch. I am 5'4'', 120 lbs, breast cancer survivor with round implants (34D), and had recently undergone a procedure. During the entire evening I felt comfortable in this dress. I was able to comfortably sit down for dinner, walk around the venue of the event and even dance. I was wearing 4 inch heels. Definitively would consider renting it again.

I went to an Oscar's Party ... with friends, not an actual Oscar's afterparty :-)
I received many compliments on the dress. I loved it!!! I only wish I had ordered the 6 and the 8 (instead of the 6 and 4). I've worn a 6 in a Badgley Mischka so I ordered the 6. This is a different fabric, not very forgiving so it was snug. That caused it to bunch up a bit. But still, it was lovely and comfortable and I loved wearing it.

Fun color and superb fit.
The dress runs really, really, short. I am 130lb and 5'5" and wore the 2L. It was pretty snug but with 3" heels the dress was a couple inches off the ground. Didn't look bad, but a regular would have looked terrible.

I felt like a mermaid!!
I LOVE this dress! I was torn between it and another one but ultimately chose this one. The color is beautiful and the lace detailing is gorgeous in person. It fits like a glove and shows off your figure but is still comfortable, flattering, and not too much. Length was perfect for me with 3" heels and my favorite part was that I could wear a normal bra with it (which for someone with my chest size who hates sticky boobs and weird designs is always a plus). I got tons of compliments on it all night and would definitely wear it again.

This dress is lovely - very flattering, beautiful cut and color, very classy.
I'm very small, and a 30B bra size, and generally have some difficulties with fit. The size 0 was exactly right through the ribcage and a little full on the bust (nothing a pushup couldn't fill out). I'm 5'2" and could not have worn the dress with flats; I needed my tallest heels. Gorgeous dress. And the scooping waist line shape somehow made me look flat-stomached. I was sad to send it on back, even though my life doesn't really warrant a full length lace gown!

Great fit. The straps were a little loose. It also runs a bit short, can't wear super tall heals. I got so many compliments. I needed a dress I could nurse in and the low neck line definitely delivered. It's a hot dress ladies!

Stylist Review
This gown is truly a showstopper. I love the fit and flare of this dress. It is a fun length and can but accessorized with a fun shoe. The back is the statement of this dress and requires no bra or a Nubra. I also recommend this dress for customers with A to C cup as the fabric has no stretch and there is therefore not much room in the bust. I recommend sizing up for a backup .

What does the back of the dress look like? Haven't found any photos and yours is the first to mention it requiring no bra!

This dress runs short
The dress is really beautiful and I got lots of compliments. I'm only 5'5" and I had to wear flats with the regular length because it was not long enough to wear heels with it.

This dress fit like a glove! I got many compliments on it. Such a great black tie option!
This dress is form fitting, but shows of your curves beautifully. It wasn't uncomfortable, but I did have a little trouble bending over. This color is an emerald green and it is stunning. The lace is also beautiful. I did not have to wear a bra with it because the bust was tight enough. If you're larger chested like me I would size up. I'm usually a 10-12 and went with the 12 because it fit my chest more comfortably. The only issue I had with the dress was that I wish it would have been a little longer. I'm 5'8" and thought it would be a little longer. I didn't have a shorter heel for a shoe option, but it wasn't a big enough issue to cause me to not wear the dress. Overall I highly recommend this dress. It's gorgeous.

Beautiful color and an elegant vintage cut, but runs small and short.
I loved this dress. It is such a magnificent color! It is as deep as pictured. I paired it with dangly sparkly earrings (Ben Amun Elise Earrings from RTR) and a big sparkly bracelet. A dress this rich in color only needs minimal accessories and a red lip to look stunning! I received compliments all night at my fiance's Oscar-themed company holiday party. However, be warned that this dress runs VERY small. I am a solid 4 in dresses -- J.Crew, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, etc., and I just got into the 8, which was my emergency backup size since I read that the dress runs small. The material, while gorgeous, has NO stretch whatsoever. Because I am an hourglass shape, this meant it didn't grab me as tightly in my waist as I would have liked, but it still skimmed my curves remarkably well. It also runs short. I am wearing 4.5 inch heels, but I easily could have worn flats and it still would have been just below my ankles above the floor. I wish I had ordered a long. I am only 5'5 and would have never thought to order anything but a regular! Also, they don't picture the back -- the straps form a simple V shape that hits the mid back. In sum, it's a gorgeous vintage style dress, but order two sizes up and a long if you're 5'4 or taller.

Kinda low chest, I used a stick on bra. The length was above the floor with one inch heels. I tried the 0L and it was like 5 inches too long so I stuck with the regular. Stunning in pictures!!!

STUNNING
This dress was beautiful! I was so sad to return it. The customer service was incredible because this was actually my backup dress, but I think it was meant to be. The quality of the lace is incredible, and the color is a rich hunter green that looks beautiful under the light. There is no stretch in this fabric, so definitely order one size up as your backup, but even so the material is thick enough that it covers any unslightly lumps without needing spanx! I am small chested so I did not wear a bra, but the straps have little loops that would securely hold bra straps in place if you did need to wear one. 10/10 would definitely reccommend, compliments all night long!

this dress speaks for its self. you do not need a lot of jewelry to make it up. Love the back!
pro: fits to size, hugs everything well, material is amazing con: im 5'3'' and and my 3'' heels was one inch too short for it to sit perfectly on the floor. but since im a bit wider at the bottom for my petite frame it kinda bunched up at my hip (not too noticeable) making it hit the floor right. so if you want heels 3 inch and under, you might want to get the regular fit. (only if you're 5'3'' and under) also, the dress could have been a bit brighter... i know clothes so i can tell its been though a lot of wearing but that still wouldn't stop me from renting again

Beautiful fit and color!
I wore this for a bridesmaid dress in a wedding! I'm pretty tall, but it hit the perfect length without my heels. I went without a bra because of the back and straps. Provided lots of support without me feeling like I was flashing the world. So many compliments all night long! The dress was also very slimming!

I've read how other women have wanted to keep their dresses, I could barely bring myself to return this one! I'm 5'6" 135lbs and have a curvy or hourglass figure and this dress could not have fit me any better. I ordered the long and I'm happy I did as I was able to wear a 3 1/2" heel (my husband is 10" taller than me so I like to wear heels to events with him). The color is more of a hunter green but still very deep and dark, it was gorgeous!

Beautiful and figure flattering
I am small chested, 36A-B, and I was unable to wear this dress because of that. I ordered a 8L and a10L (runs small) and the 10L would have been perfect if I had bigger girls. If I owned the dress I would have had it altered, because everything else about it was perfect. I am 5'7" and with heels it was the perfect length.

dress was amazing!
this dress is great for an hourglass shape! you might have to buy a special bra for the back- it does go a little low but i used bra tape. if you are 5'9 and taller- make sure to GET A LONG SIZE! the dress did not touch the floor. i highly recommend this dress- make sure to order a size up of your usual size for the free second size!

Beautiful although too small
This dress was ordered as a backup because the size I ordered in a different gown was damaged. I ordered this with the automatic mindset of not liking it. To my surprise this gown was beautiful in person. The bad news is the 0R size was too small for me. I'm a 32C and was unable to zip the dress fully. It was also too tight in the butt/thigh area. The overall fit was nice though and very flattering. I was unable to wear this gown but I do recommend it to others.

UNBELIEVABLE DRESS!!! Loved every moment wearing it! So comfy! So flattering! So many compliments!
This dress fit me like a glove!! I'm very busty so I was nervous about it fitting but it was perfect!! I wouldn't recommend this dress if you are flat chested. There's a seam under the bra line which would need room to fill. The color of this dress was amazing! The pictures don't do it justice! This dress was so classy and I would 100 percent wear it again!

I wore this for my engagement photos.
I ordered this dress in a size 6, but I have a lot of booty going on (if you know what I mean). I got the 8 as a back up and thank goodness I did. It was loose in my bust area and looked a little sad even with my chicken-cutlets (adhesive bra). I loved the drape of the skirt and the color was everything I wanted. I think overall the dress wasn't a great fit for my body type. I would recommend it for women with a slimmer form (or me 5 years ago).
