Classic LBD

I wore this for a Wedding (black tie). I thought the look was classic paired with simple accessories. Fit well with an easy strapless bra and didn't need Spanx. It was tight fitting, but comfy. Tough to dance with arms above your head though! :)

Fabulous dress!

Was super flattering. The top stayed in place for the most part. The back hood detail made it unique. Felt great in this dress!

Wardrobe Malfunction

If you are over the age of 50, had a child or 2, don't spend your life in a gym, have a muffin, a pouch or cellulite, this is not a dress for you. It clings to the unsightly.

Stylist Review

I love this classic dress by Nicole Miller! Running true to size with a lot of stretch, I recommend wearing your primary size and going one size up for your back up if you will like to have a little more room to move. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and the hips. It works for all cup sizes. You are not able to wear a standard bra with this dress so you should wear a strapless bra since this is an off the shoulder dress. At 5’3”, the length hit just at the knee on me. This is a very classic dress that could be worn for different type of events. Pair with black heels and small studs and a bracelet to complete your outfit.

Nah. This dress is weird.

I got this for a cocktail party. It just looks weird on and i did not like it at all. So I did not wear it.

Excellent dress for short woman

Very comfortable and sophisticated. I wore Spanx beneath and several people commented on how flattering the dress was. I wore the collar a little differently -- more like a boat neck than off the shoulder.

Love this dress!!

The wingspan is small- I hope I can get the next size up in time for the event. Fabric is awesome and very comfortable, this is a keeper for sure!

Runs small

I was so excited for this dress, but unfortunately I didn't end up wearing it. It was way too tight in unforgiving places. I'd order a size or two up from your normal size if you're considering this one.

Formal. Comfortable. Slimming. CLASSIC.

Absolutely in love with this dress!! Sorry I don't have a full body pic, but with spanx, I felt like a million bucks. Many compliments, no zipper, so do hair and makeup after!

Perfect dress. Too tight for me! It works out, though. My aunt who is a size 2 wore it perfectly.

I have curves that made this dress stick a little too close. Order a size up.

Beautiful, but too small...

This was a beautiful dress, but unfortunately the two sizes I ordered (6 and 8) were both too tight for me. I had a free dress (it was my first time ordering from RTR) that I ended up wearing, but had I not had the extra dress I would have tried to return this one for a 10 or maybe even a 12.

Very fitted, so unflattering

Dress was SO tight, so short. I normally wear a 0-4 and probably would have been comfortable in a ten. Really not my style...and definitely didn't wear it to a more conservative Day time wedding. Thought it would be like a work dress with more shoulder reveal. It's not that.

This dress is classy but runs very small, not flattering on an apple shaped lady!

I loved the neck line on this, and the stretch material is comfy. However, I have an apple shape and it showed all of that. Wouldn't recommend for fellow gals with a large tummy.

Winter wedding of my cousin

The dress fit great and I got a lot of compliments. If I did this again I think I would choose a dress that is easier to dance in. The structure of the off-shoulder cape meant that my arms were constricted. But it was gorgeous and would be great for a nice event with no dancing planned.

I ordered this dress to wear to an office holiday party in LA. It fit great and was super comfy!

I am not a fan of my arms....so this dress covers your upper arms, but is sexy at the same time. I would highly recommend renting this cape dress for any special event!

Dress is cute. Cape is a little larger than expected and felt like it ran way small. I'm usually a 00 and this was tight. I'd suggest ordering a size up!

The 12 fit more like an 8, so I was unable to wear it. It was so tight, I could barely get it over my head!

Amazing dress!

This dress was amazing. The first time I've used RTR. This was the perfect dress for my holiday work party. I normally wear a 12, but since this was form fitting with stretch material I wore the 14. I received so many compliments on this dress.

Flattering and chic

Very flattering and overall comfortable. The only reason it didn't get a 5 star review was because the wing span was so tight on the off-the-shoulder top- made for some awkward hug attempts! Overall though would definitely rent again!

Loved the fit of this dress!

Perfect LBD! The cape covered my upper arms which I liked. Did not restrict movement but I wasn't waving my hands in the air. Material of the dress was good quality - not thin or cheap looking. Worth the rental. Wore to a work Christmas party.

Awesome black dress!

Maintaining the shoulders is a bit challenging but doable. Love the dress it received many compliments. The bad part was the FedEx delivery they never came as projected and when I had to go in to pick it up in time for the party service was extremely poor. RTR please stop using them.

Not for broad shouldered girls!

I loved this dress and am really glad I got to wear it after all. It is form fitting but a thicker fabric so it didnt show too much. My only problem was the neckline. I have broader shoulders for my petite frame so the neck wouldnt stretch over my shoulders. I ended up having it above my shoulders like a boat neck and i thought it still worked well!

This is a gorgeous dress--simple and classy. I loved it.

I'm 150 lbs and 5'2" and the 8 was snug. I wish I had sized up, but I pulled it off with some shapewear.

style over comfort

This dress is a funky version of an LBD however I was fiddling with the sleeves all night (and needed assistance from my friends several times) and it's kinda tricky to dance in. Think t-rex arms. Also super tight so you're gonna want to stick to the liquor over beer... all in all, liked it, didn't love it.

Wish I would've received before my event..cute dress

I read the reviews and they were all true. It ran small and was very fitted but in a good way. I didn't get to wear it to my event because of a shopping issue but I would've worn if it had come on time. The photos are just trying on with no spanx ha! I think it's a great dress and felt very comfortable on
