Great Dress! Its very dramatic and surprising comfortable. It fit snug but didn’t feel tight and pleats are slimming. I got tons of compliments and highly recommend it for the ladies who are not blessed with hips- It forms you into an hour glass.

I loved this dress! I wore it to an outdoor wedding and the colors are absolutely beautiful. Looks great in pictures with the dramatic sleeve. I got several compliments on it. It is very comfortable and easy to dance in. The ruching is very flattering also and the fabric is not too shiny. Fabulous!

I LOVED this dress. I felt fabulous in it. I wore it to an outdoor evening summer wedding. I normally wear an 8 and that's exactly what fit. The ruching hit all the right places. I have a small bust and the one shoulder look was just fine. I never played with it/pulled it up. Length was great and never rode up. Easy dancing, sitting, standing, eating. I can't wait to rent it again!

I received a billion compliments on this dress at a wedding I wore it to. I wear a 34C bra but am very straight and flat everywhere else so usually that's where something won't fit me and this was great. I ordered a 2 and 4 and wore the 2. The dress's fabric has stretch so it offers you some wiggle room. This hit me a few inches above the knee, so if you're petite I think this dress would overwhelm you.

Fit perfectly and was very stylish for a night out in Vegas. Didn't need to make any fit adjustments. It is wrinkle-prone and hard to iron because of all the ruching.

I absolutely loved this dress! It was very true to size, and hugged my body in all the right places; I have an awkward shaped body so that's hard to do! I received a million compliments on it (I wore it to a friend's wedding), and it looked absolutely stunning! It was comfortable as well! Fabulous!

This dress is absolutely stunning- the online photo does not do it justice. It has some stretch and fit perfctly on me(I have a small waist to hip ratio: 29" and like 42" hips). Wore this to a weeding.Very pretty on caramel colored complexion.

Absolutely stunning dress! Quite dramatic--conveys sexiness and elegance all in one. Received many compliments from strangers and friends all night. The dress runs large--I was glad I'd ordered a size smaller than my usual size. The smaller size fit amazingly! The colors in the picture seems quite accurate. The dress didn't ride up at all--stayed in place. I never had to tug on it. Handled dancing just fine! The sleeve didn't seem to get in the way at all--only when I was washing my hands. Overall, a fantastic dress--I would love to buy it!

I ordered this dress as my backup dress and liked it. It's very pretty and fit well. I am not sure how many of each dress they have in stock, but my backup size wasn't available because someone returned it late and my normal size had a small but noticeable stain on the sleeve. If you're renting a size 0, I would reach out to them to make sure that's fixed before renting. They were great and gave me a refund that covered the cost of a backup, but wanted to warn others in case there is only one dress for each size

I loved this dress! I used it for my homecoming at school, got it about two days before, and everything came together surprisingly well. The dress was very comfortable and I didn't find myself messing with it or trying to fix anything on it all night. I would definitely recommend this dress (and this site) to anyone.

I was cautiously optimistic about the quality of a "rented" dress. I was pleasantly surprised, it was in GREAT condition. I received many compliments on the dress. It does fit true to size. I am a 4/6 but went with the 6 b/c I thought the ruching was better displayed with the 6. Will rent again!

The colors were beautiful and material so smooth and comfortable!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Loved the material, very comfortable to wear. The one shoulder long sleeve was a lot of fun and made the dress interesting but was also a little challenging sometimes to keep out of the sink and table while dining. The rouching is very flattering, the side zipper is exposed and sometimes caused some buckling at the side but not enough to bother you. You can wear a strapless bra since the neckline doesn't cut too low. The length was a little long for me, I would have like to have it an inch or two shorter, but not a big deal. The bottom hem is a little pronounced but I think that may be from the steaming/dry cleaning. Overall So very happy with the rental and was asked about the dress many times throughout the night! Wore along with the Elizabeth Cole Aqua Ombre earrings and they were stunning!!! I will for sure be renting those in one of the other available colors again!

I had one stranger come up to me and tell me that I was best dressed of the night. Seeing as this was a company party with 500+ people in attendance, that felt great!!!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I have never gotten so many compliments in one night, before wearing this dress! So many people came up to me and said how much they loved my dress and I couldn't stop beaming all night. The dress was very comfortable, and didn't ride up at all when dancing, which was very important as I danced for 4 hours and the dress was wonderful in that aspect. As others have said, the sleeve can get in the way when trying to wash your hands when going to the bathroom, but I would just flip it over my shoulder and it would be out of the way, no problem. You will want to get seamless underwear for this dress, but if you do, you won't have an issue there. I totally recommend this dress, it is just so much fun and wish I could wear it more than once!! It will be hard to top this dress for me!

I loved the fit of this dress! However, the color did nothing for me. :o( I am super fair-skinned with dark hair and the silvery color washed me out. I am a busty girl with narrow hips, so I have a hard time finding a dress that doesn’t make me look like a linebacker. This dress gave me CURVES!!! I ordered this dress as backup for the Mark & James by Badgley Mischka Draped Dream Dress. If I could have combined the color of the Draped Dream with the fit of this Nicole Miller I would have had the perfect dress.

A forgiving & gorgeous dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I couldn't have been happier with this dress, from the moment I put it on. It was stretchy & comfortable - and the ruching was quite figure flattering. It hugged my curves in all the right ways - and didn't hug them in the wrong ways. I ordered the 6 and the 8 - the 6 looked so good that I never even took the 8 out of the bag (though I suspect the 8 and even the 4 probably would have looked good as well, because of the stretchiness - Nicole Miller dresses are forgiving that way). I did wear Spanx underneath & a strapless push-up bra, and also secured the underarm with a little fashion tape, but other than that, I was ready to go as soon as I put it on. I wore this to an awards ceremony & had women stop me all night & ask me where I got this dress. I danced until 2 am & was totally comfortable - everything stayed in placed.

I wore this dress to a wedding in November. I received numerous compliments, even the Bride stopped me to say she loved my dress. I really was the best dressed lady at the wedding(except for the Bride, of course). My boyfriend and I are going to another wedding in April and he wants me to rent the same dress . I am 5'2 and 128lbs. 36D chest. The dress looked really good, even with my large chest, I didn't feel like I showed too much. Very sexy but classy dress.

It's a perfect length, hits a few inches above the knee, and the ruching was very slimming. As you may notice...I have large hips/butt and it still fit that too! The one draped sleeve adds a very elegant yet dramatic effect to the overall package.

Better suited for cocktails

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I had rented this dress for an evening wedding. While the fit was great and the colors true to the picture, I did not use the dress as it seemed more appropriate for cocktails or a date, once I put the dress on. The fabric is a bit flimsy, so it doesn't have an elegant look or feel to it. But, I'd consider it for a fun outing of cocktails.

This dress looked great and fit great. I had rented it as a backup in case my other dress didn't fit for a wedding rehearsal dinner. Unfortunately, I didn't get to actually wear this, but it's a beautiful dress and I hope to be able to rent it for a future occasion. The color is absolutely gorgeous in person!

Great dress that made an impression!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

After reading the reviews, I chose this dress to wear to a wedding. It was a stunning dress that fit well and had a unique appearance. The sleeve only got in the way while washing my hands (no big deal) and it looked great with a pair of black heels! Being short, the hem length was just above the knee, which was perfect for a family wedding. I ordered a 4 and 6 and the 4 fit better but was slightly tight in the bust. The stretch in the dress made the fit perfect. Overall, it was a great choice and I highly recommend it!

The fabric on this dress felt wonderful...it was so silky and comfortable. I love one-shouldered dresses and it was great to have the long flow-y sleeve. Looked very elegant and fit just right around the hips and legs. Showed off the curves, but didn't slide up with each step. Just be careful when eating or reaching over the table, the sleeve could fall in!

The dress fit great, as other people mentioned the hemline is prominent I guess because it has been dry cleaned so many times, the hook on the back would not close properly, the major problem I had was the dress came to me very wrinkled. All in all some of the wrinkles fell out after I put the dress on. I did get many compliments on the dress. I wore it for my dad's surprise birthday party.

I wore this dress for a DisneyBounding party. (I was Hades.) We even went to Magic Kingdom after.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Unfortunately, my size (a 10) was not in stock, so I had to order the largest size possible (an 8) and hope that I had lost enough weight at work to fit in the dress. It wasn't a perfect fit, but I was able to make do for the one day. The only other downside to the dress (besides it being a smudge too small for me to begin with) was that the skirt tended to twist to the right, bringing the left-side seam to the front. Now, the reason why I marked this as "Runs large" is because I was able to wear it anyway. Think about it, a girl who normally wears a size 10 was able to comfortably wear a size 8 dress for an entire day! (And the zipper didn't even give me trouble on the way up!) Now that's something.

Perhaps it was the time of year (winter), but just wasn't crazy about the color or fit. Felt constricting and the covered shoulder just hung there.
