Stylist Review!
The lace on this gown gives it a really gorgeous feminine look. The lilac color is so great for Spring and early-Summer events (helloooo, Prom!) The side cutouts are very subtle and make for a fun detail. The style is fitted throughout, but it has some stretch to it. Like most Nicole Miller pieces, you can go for your usual size with this!

Very nice!
I ended up not wearing this dress to my prom because I ended up choosing a different one. However, I really liked this! I normally don't like tight dresses because of my stomach. However, that wasn't really as much of an issue with this one. As long as you wear spanx, the dress will still look good. I have curves, and I definitely think this dress worked for me because of that. It was pretty comfy, the hem was a great length (with four inch heels), and it seemed true to size.

Great last minute dress that stood out!
Great form fitting dress that can be worn with high heels without the dress being too short or long (I'm 5'5"). No need to wear a bra because it's thick enough lining and holds everything snug. The color is slightly darker in person than on the website but is a beautiful color and unique. I wore champagne/light gold heels but silver would work too. A comfortable, fun dress!

Head-Turner!
By the end of the night, people started suggesting that I needed to own the dress. I would buy in a second if I had money for a perfect (but pricey) gown like this one! Runs a bit small, I am normally between a 0 and 2 in dresses but dress was very form fitting in the ribcage and bust. Tried on at an in-store RTR and found that 4 was the perfect fit for me.

Absolutely beautiful event and perfect dress!
It fit perfectly when I tried it on in the store and when I wore it for the event. I have to get used to showing my back/sides, but this was a great "starter" dress for that because it was also both feminine and elegant. I often order "long" sizes, but the regular was perfect in 3" heels even with my 5'9" frame. Loved this dress!

Gorgeous dress! Perfect for spring or summer events. The lace gives it a nice feminine look!
This is a gorgeous dress! I got so many compliments on it at the wedding I wore it to. I ended up wearing the size up, although I would have even liked to try on the next size. It's pretty tight around the bust area. I wore the dress with heels and had no problem switching into sandals by the end of the night. The length was no problem. Overall, LOVE love love this dress!! Totally wish I could have kept it.

Very flattering and pretty. Comfortable too.
I am usually a 4, but the 4 was slightly tight so I went for the 6 and it was perfect.

Beautiful dress! Will definitely give you the illusion of a small waist, however I would recommend sizing up if you have a large chest or broad shoulders

Perfect dress for this spring wedding. So many compliments!
This dress was beautiful. I ordered my size and one up because some of the reviews made it sound like it was going to be overly tight, but it wasn't at all it was perfect. I would've tried a size down if I had it! The dress stayed on well, no issues with falling or not staying in place. I got so many compliments. Super sexy too, but not overtly. Would definitely order this dress again!

Really pretty dress!!
This dress looked really stunning! The fabric is thick so hides all the imperfections around the tummy/hip area. I did size up due to being too tight around the hips, so be weary of that for your sizing needs. Would definitely rent again!

Cute and comfortable! Neckline and length balance out the cutouts so not overly risqué
Loved this dress! I'm normally a 4 but only the 2 was available. It was fine, just a bit tight through the arm holes. Couldn't wear a bra, but it was alright. Loved the color and the lace. The hem is really lovely. Good length, I wore 3inch heels and I'm 5'9" and it was good!

Nonstop compliments!
I wore this dress to a black tie wedding in Guadalajara, Mexico. Pros: It fit like a glove, I loved the color, it was perfectly appropriate, and I received compliments all night long. I am smaller in the chest, so I loved the high neckline that isn't revealing. I loved the sexy cut-out in the back. I felt great in the dress. Con: Don't plan on eating much. The dress was already very form-fitting and unforgiving, and was a little uncomfortable after a big meal.

This dress fit perfectly and felt like a really good quality dress. It was a thick material and I could wear a normal bra. I am tall and wore 3" heels and the long length was perfect. I got lots of compliments on it!

Pretty much perfect, except for some minor details.
The dress has a few layers on the inside which make it feel a bit hot when it's very warm weather, however, the dress is still pretty light-weight, and considering the slit in the back, which made it easy to move around in, the dress was pretty much perfect.

This dress was a show stopper. I received millions compliments. I felt & looked like a million bucks
The fit was perfect. Im short, 5ft 1in and normally I have trouble with length, but with this dress and my heels the dressed gracefully touched the ground. The cut was enough to show my curves in a lady like manner. The dress was even perfect for dancing.

Beautiful dress
Great dress for a formal wedding. I loved that it was such a unique dress and received lots of compliments on it. Fit was a little awkward in the 2, so I opted to size up to the 4. It was a little big, but was much more comfortable. Length was perfect for my flats

Perfect for a black tie summer wedding
Absolutely loved! The four fit better on top but the two fit better overall. I felt the four just had a little too much fabric. The two was perfect. I'm 5' 11 and the long with short heels was perfect.

This dress was beautiful! It added a pop of color for a summer black tie wedding.
The color was stunning, and the cut outs were fun while still classy. I'm 5'2 so it was a bit long but was still able to wear with my tallest heels. Lots of compliments on the dress, and I would definitely rent again!

This dress was STUNNING and I was flooded with compliments all night long!
The only thing I wish I'd done differently was get the extra length. I really debated but I'm 5'9 and it was on the short side, but still a lovely dress! Would highly recommend, it was very flattering on a tall girl like me!

I wore this to a beautiful wedding in the mountains of Vermont.
I got a lot of compliments on this dress. It is very pretty, but it runs a bit small. I order a 6 (my usual size), and while it fit, it was a little too tight to wear comfortably. I ended up in an 8R. The dress was gorgeous, but the material bunched up around my stomach. It was not very flattering.

Breathtaking and unique!
I rented this dress as part of my unlimited for a wedding in Italy. The color is gorgeous, and the cutouts make it stand out. I received a lot of compliments all night, and this dress was comfortable to dance in and traveled well without getting wrinkled. I wore the 6L with flat sandals and the dress was more than long enough, which is always a plus. Would definitely rent this again.

Nashville Wedding at Houston Station
In LOVE with this dress! Such a great color. Perfect for a trendy wedding. The top was snug for me (34D and busty) but it was tight enough that I didn't need to wear a bra. It held my girls up just fine. You will need help Zipping the back though because it is completely separated and hard to reach on your own. Pretty long, but I wore tall heels with this one. Got compliments all night and on all of my photos! Easy to move in and wear the whole night! The side cut outs give this dress a sexy edge--just make sure you are standing up straight in your photos. A few of mine where I hunched over weren't very flattering. Overall an Amazing choice!

Loving lace!
I LOVE this dress!!! as someone who has had 3 spine surgeries I often find it difficult for me to be confident in dresses with open backs and side cutouts- two scars along my spine and one diagonally from top of my ribcage to the bottom of it. This dress made me feel beautiful despite showing my scars. It is a beautiful, vibrant lilac lace that does not disappoint. I would recommend ordering a size up if you have boobs, a butt, or hips/thighs as the fabric has NO give/stretch. I ended up not wearing this to wedding bc it has no give.

Unique dress with interesting cut outs
First off, I had to do some creative things to make this dress work. I am 5'2" and wore 4 inch heels ... but still had to use fashion tape to temporarily hem the dress by at least four inches! Also I wore a size 2 and I'm about 118 pounds and it fit like a glove ... So if you're much bigger than that you might want to consider going one size up. Also you might be able to get away with a normal bra but the straps kept barely peeking out so I went with a strapless bra and his dress holds it all very firmly in place - no room to go anywhere! My family at the wedding loved the dress and kept commenting at how sexy it was but in my opinion the cut outs are so much smaller than say a backless dress which I think is far more sexier. Perhaps the peekaboo type cut outs are uniquely placed so people automatically think it's super sexy! So if you're pretty conservative this probably isn't the dress for you. I could only post one picture but this dress in some light looks like a very vibrant purple - it is so pretty and unique looking with the cut outs.

Sexy AND comfortable!
This dress was surprisingly comfortable. I received compliments all night long. I liked that there were cutouts but that they were understated. Also, a huge plus is that you can wear a normal bra with the dress! I wore it with silver shoes. Sizing was true to size. I'm usually a 2 or 4 petite. The 2 fit a bit tighter which normally I like, but because of the cutouts it was not as attractive (there was a bit of 'bulge'--ick!). So I wore the 4 and it was great!

Stunning! Pictures do not do it justice!
I loved this piece! I originally ordered it for a back up for a black tie optional wedding in Asheville, NC. When I put it on, it was so flattering in all areas that I had to wear it. The pictures truly do not do it justice. There is a long slit in the back that helped me stay cool outside and made it more comfortable to more around and dance. Because I am 5'2, it was naturally long but the length wasn't an issue with 3 inch heels. My only complaint was that they bust area was a little tight, so I did not wear a bra with it and was just fine. I highly recommend this piece!

Wore this dress for a friend's black tie wedding. It was a great dress for dancing the night away.
Was concerned about the length being too short and the size being too small, but everything fit perfectly. I wore 2-inch heels and the dress skimmed the floor. The slip in the back makes it easy for dancing. The dress is comfortable and beautiful.

Overall great rental. I received a 2 and a 4 and felt both fit well but the 4 was a better dress for lots of eating and dancing. Received several compliments and was happy I had it for a very hot July black tie wedding. Would definitely recommend !

College's friends black tie wedding.
I LOVED this dress. Was a little nervous to get it due to the side & back cut outs, but I am so happy with the choice. I felt elegant and the cut-out added a fun feature for a short, non-busty girl like myself! I ordered the size 4 & 2. It really does fit true to size and the 2 was perfect.

I was worried about the length since I am a shorty, but it was perfect with heels. I received so many compliments on this dress! This was my first Rent the Runway and I can't wait to rent again!
