Flattering, fun, forgiving.

Love this dress! I'm a size 10 and usually size up in Nicole Miller but this 10 was perfect. Form fitting yet hides all imperfections. I'm a 36D but didn't need a bra with this one. Only issue is you can't lift your arms too high. Rent it. Love it.

Date night

Size 8?! I'm not sure if that's correct, but it's already been dropped off for return. Cant give any insight on sizing because I guess I have no idea what size I actually wore. The shoulders fit a little odd, like I needed to have bigger boobs or taller shoulder to chest proportions- so they kinda floated above my shoulders. Still a sexy LBD though.

Sleek, but caution for larger shoulders/muscular ladies!

I ended up choosing a sparklier dress for the event, but I will say I ended up trying this dress in three different sizes. I'm an athletic build, usually a 4-6 and while I could squeeze into the 6, the 8 was comfortable. Beware if you have large shoulders/muscular arms- the neat sleeves may restrict you or pop up/not fit correctly.

Perfect Cocktail Dress!

Wore this to a Mardi Gras Queen's ball and it was perfect. The right amount of coverage with a tease. I wear an 8 or 10 depending on the dress fit in the chest area. I decided to go with the 8 instead of the 10 because the 10 was loose around my mid section and hips. I would hands down rent again! It was comfortable and even though the straps were tight on my shoulders it fully supported my chest (36DD) without a bra.

Pretty but tight

Was very tight compared to the other size 10 dress I rented. Otherwise it's really cute and would be flattering if it fit right.

It was a little tight but the quality was nice and thick and was very flattering.

Beautiful dress, stretchy fabric, slimming!

This is a beautiful dress. Thick material, but stretchy and slimming. The shoulder straps run a bit long, so they kept slipping down. I normally wear a size 6, but sized up because I wasn't sure if it would be too firm fitting. The 8 fit perfectly. If you're between sIzes, I'd recommend go up.

Sexy but appropriate for any occasion LBD

The fit is pretty small - I had to size up but it fit really well. I read reviews saying they couldn't move their arms much, and maybe that part was too big for me because as the night wore on my straps kept falling down. And the dress rode up a bit, but not inappropriately. I got so many compliments!

Did not wear :(

I loved this dress on the pictures but when I tried it on, the straps did not stay put. I guess you have to have super skinny arms to make it work. I didn't wear this.

Runs small and the arms are uncomfortable

Size up for sure, but if u have a larger bust and or are athletically built, you might want to pass. The tighter fit at the bust compounding the restriction of the strap/sleeve design. The fabric was good though and I can see this being lovely on a less busty person 😉

Not for me

I feel like the fit of this dress was just a little off for me. I’m usually a standard size 4, and while I could zip up this dress, it felt a little tight in the arms/bust. I have a bigger chest, 32ddd/e, and I wouldn’t have been able to wear a bra. Better for a smaller-busted woman, I think.

Tiny spandex

I had to return the 6 (my regular size in most things/brands including Nicole Miller) to size up for the 8, which was still far to snug to wear to a cocktail attire wedding. The material is super stretchy, almost spandex like, and frankly felt a little cheap for this brand.

Pretty but runs small

I really loved this dress online and ordered it as a backup dress since only the 0 was available (and I would want the 2 as a backup if ordering as my primary). I'm glad I did, because my usual size 0 was TIGHT. I needed my husband's help to finish zipping it up over my rib cage, and I could hardly raise my arms once that was done. I think the 2 would probably have fit well and been very cute. I did feel that even in the 0 which was small on top, it was not very fitted in the hips and below, which is my preferred style... so probably the 2 would have been even more like an A-line and less like the figure-hugging silhouette I had hoped for. Honestly without having the 2 to try on though, I can't say for sure. I'd order the 2 as a backup option in the future, that's how much I love the look online... just not sure it will work for me! For reference I'm 5'5", 108 lbs.

N/A

Adorable and slimming dress but I could not lift my arms up in this dress. The straps over the shoulders would not stay put. I have broad/muscular shoulders so this may have contributed to my fit issues.

A staple little black something!

I love this sleek dress by Nicole Miller! Running true to size with very little stretch, I recommend wearing your true size for your primary size and going up for your back up. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and fitted at the hips. It works for cup sizes A-D. You are not able to wear a standard bra with this dress so you should wear nubra or since there is small keyhole in the front that may expose a typical strapless bra. At 5’4”, the length hit knee length on me. The black color of the dress is classic. Pair with black heels and fun earrings to complete your outfit!

This was the perfect little black dress!

Overall I think that the dress runs true-to-size, and is very comfortable. It's a good dress for an evening that is talking/eating. I wouldn't wear it for dancing or heavy movement because of the way the sleeves are cut, it's hard to have your arms above your head, or to hold a partner to dance. Pros: Cute little black dress, I love the cut out near the chest, and the shoulders are really elegant. I think this dress could be used for a very formal even with the right jewelry, or it can be great for a less formal event. This dress also hit me length-wise in the right spot even though I'm short (5'1''). So if you're tall take that into consideration. Cons: If you have large or muscular arms I would say size up because of the cut of the shoulder. You'll want to feel like you can move your arms without tearing stitching. If you are large chested I don't think this dress will fit, I'm very small chested and it fit like a glove, which means no room for much else.

We had a cocktail party at our house and this was perfect.

This dress fit great and I received a ton of compliments. I have a larger bust, so there was definite cleavage, but it fit great. I am 5 months post partum and it flattered all the right areas.

This LBD was so easy to wear and I felt so elegant in it! Didn't have to adjust anything :)

Can't go wrong with Nicole Miller. I originally ordered another dress but it didn't fit properly so RtR rushed me two other choices and this one was perfect! The fit was so comfortable - just enough stretch to cling in all the right places yet not tight. Just stayed put. I have an athletic build and wouldn't normally go for an off the shoulder dress but this was perfect with the two straps over the shoulder too. It was very flattering. At 5' 2" it was just the right length also - not too short! I wore my strapless silicone bra - which I highly recommend for dresses that don't need all the extra straps sticking out!!! Felt gorgeous and glam all night long in this LBD!

Didn’t wear, but got this as a backup.

Beautiful dress, but too tight around arms. Didn’t wear.
