Gorgeous dress, beautiful color & fits like a glove. If you have wide hips it may be a little tight, but otherwise it's comfortable

i'm pretty curvy and this dress added a little too much "bulk" to my stomach and butt area. if you're on the curvy side, i highly recommend spanx!

This dress runs true to size, beautiful deep color, the biggest issue was the condition the dress arrived in the size 2 was extremely wrinkled so had to run out an buy a steamer. I wore with the necklace shown and laura merkin bag. Entire outfit was RTR (except shoes:) and I made it on the Danish News because of the stunning dress. I did feel like Cinderella at the end of the night having to ship it all back! lol

This dress runs true to size. It was so comfortable to wear and I got so many compliments. I rented the 6 and 8 and both fit. Wore the 8 just b/c it fit a little better in the chest. Like others said it needed to be steamed but I was prepared for this so it was no big deal. The RTR experience was so easy I will definitely use again !!!

Overall, the dress was nice but I had a few problems. When I first received the dress there was a tear at the top of the bust on the left side. As well at the underwire and over wire of the dress were out of place so I found myself pulling the dress under the wire because it would scratch my skin continuously! And because my boobs are big I had to CONSTANTLY pull the dress up. & since my butt is big, the design didn't fit over like it was supposed to! It was really baggy in some areas, but despite all the mishap I liked it! It wasn't worth a 75$ rental though.. More like 45. Size/design wise = 4 Appearance of the dress = 3

Height: 5'8" Weight: 115 Event: Prom I discovered this website a couple weeks before prom and decided to rent this dress as a backup in case my actual dress didn't come in time. Thank god, because my dress didnt -- and still hasn't -- come in! My RTR dress came right in time, and it was perfect! I ordered a size 0 and 2. The 0 fit perfectly. I did have to pull it up a few times throughout the night just because it's strapless and I have a small bust, but it was very flattering. I received tons of compliments, and everyone thought it was super cool that it was a rental. I believe I rented it for $60 when the rental price was $75. I googled RTR coupons and found a -$15 one! If you plan to rent this dress, get it one or two days before your event. It did come in pretty wrinkly, like many of the other reviewers have said. I received my dress the day before the event and had my friend steam it for me the day of. Other than that, everything was perfect! :)

Beautiful dress, and customer service is AMAZING. It was a little tight on my hips and tended to ride up. If you're hippy, you might want to order a size up. But I wore it to a Military Dinner so luckily I didn't have to move too much. This dress said "classy elegance" without being ANOTHER boring black dress. I already ordered another rental for another event next week because I had such a great experience. Thanks RTR.

This was my first choice dress and I think it is beautiful. However, I thought the colour was not as deep as it is shown here which was the most disappointing thing. The fabric also laid weird on my hips. I will not end up wearing this one.

This dress looks so much better in person! The color actually looks much lighter, but it still looked beautiful. The two straps threw me off at first, but their supposed to be criss-crossed in the front of the dress. Overall I was satisfied with this dress. I felt like a princess! Definitely worth renting.

Absolutely stunning dress. I was very impressed with the quality of the material and the fit. Even though I did not have major hips to fill the dress out, it created an illusionary hourglass figure that was flattering. Absolutely pleased with this rental!

This dress was absolutely stunning -- paired it with the Noble Nadia Necklace. The only "complaint" I would have is that I ordered a size long (I'm 5'11" without shoes!!) and I felt that it was still too long / was dragging on the ground. However, this was a minor point - received many compliments on it and felt fabulous!

This was a fabulous dress. You can't tell in the picture, but it has a beautiful train in the back. It runs true to size. Since I am so tall, I ordered it in the long size, and it worked perfectly. I recommend renting the long if you are taller than 5'8.

This dress was a huge disappointment! It arrived wrinkled and in TERRIBLE condition. When I tried it on I looked like a purple mummy. Would not recommend it....but it did run true to size if you rent another Nicole Miller gown.

I was extremely nervous about fitting into this dress since designer sizes are scaled differently. I needn't have worried. I'm a size 6 and this gown fit as though it were made for me. Men and women were staring at this dress all night long (my husband says they were staring at me) and commenting on how spectacular it was. There's just something special about it, and it definately stood out in a sea of standard, ho-hum department store selections. The flow to this gown is sensual, and I wore it with minimal jewelry. It did need a good steam when it arrived, but it took seconds with my steamer and I was ready to go. Cannot express enough how absolutely stunning this gown is, and I can't wait to rent again when the need arises. I will do so without hesitation.

This dress was a beautiful color, and had soft flowing fabric. However, the bodice does not have boning and does not tightly hold in any tummy bulge! Since it is tight around the bottom of the bodice, it will accentuate any tummy that is not completely flat. Did not wear this dress, even though it was my first choice.

I am SUPER impressed with RTR! For one, I received the dress a day before the expected date which was great because it gave me extra time to plan my outfit/hair/etc. for prom. Two, the dress was very snug on my tall frame and I loved the color. The dress is a tad darker than it is in the picture but there isn't a drastic difference. The dress sorta smelt weird when I first opened it but it was probably just from the cardboard packaging. Now, many reviewers of this dress have been confused about the random straps that hang down from the hips. Well, I figured this out by studying the picture and you actually have to take the strap and stick the skirt of the dress through each so they end up crossing each other diagonally when you put the dress on (for future reference for those who may rent this dress). Also, the dress was sorta wrinkly whenever I pulled it out but that wasn't a huge deal. Over all, I love this dress!

I've rented over 10 dresses from RTR to date, and this was one of few that was disappointing. First, I ordered a 4 long and a 6 long. I'm fairly sure that RTR sent a 4 Regular and a 6 Long, because the 6 was about 4.5 inches longer than the 4. Luckily I was only wearing this for a photoshoot, so the length of the dress didn't matter, but if I were wearing it for an actual event, I would have had a real problem. In addition to the sizes not being correct, the 6 was in very poor condition. The hem on the bottom had a 3 inch rip in it, where it looked like someone had stepped on it with a heel. The fabic on the top of the bust line was also ripped. Definitely not in a condition that I would have worn for an event. Luckily, again, the 6 was too big so I was able to wear the 4. The dress in itself was pretty. The mermaid-style construction was a little awkward on my hips, but all in all it was okay. Wouldn't rent again, and am definitely going to call to confirm my sizes and the condition of the actual dresses I will receive in the future.

Pieces arrive to you a bit worn out but none the less beautiful. Although I could not rent my size (I'm petite I rented a reg.) I still managed with the reg. sized dress. It is very flowy and elegant. My only complaint is that it's a bit worn out. And if they do not have your size do not rent the dress. I have learned.

I was a little unhappy when I received the dress because it was pretty wrinkled and I had to take it to get steamed but the 0 fit me fine... definitely needed 4-5" heels or else it would be too long. I felt like wrapped area around my hips made me look wider but the color was fab on my olive skin tone. I got a lot of compliments. It's really fun to dance in because the fabric flows really nicely. The shape of the bust boning was a little weird on me but no one else seemed to notice. I'm a 34B.

Absolutely AMAZING! The dress was a little long on me even at 5'5" with 4" heels on. But it wasn't a problem. I received several compliments and felt like a real show-stopper. :) If I wasn't in so many pictures I would rent this dress again. The fit was perfect in the bust and hips. I didn't feel like a stuffed sausage and it didn't ride up or fall down. Loved it!!!

I am a size 6 and the dress was true to size. It fit great and the built in bra came in handy. The pieces of the dress that hang down are supposed to criss cross and wrap around the dress. Count on having to have the dress dry cleaned when you receive it as it was terribly wrinkled and had fuzz, lent, and hair all over it. But, after a rush trip to the cleaners, the dress came out great and looked great and I received several compliments.

Beautiful dress. It was actually my second choice, but I ended up going with it cause of the fit and I adored it (Black Tie Wedding). I'm very slender so I'm always afraid of clothes being big on me, but the size 0 fit me well. Some reviewers made comments about the dress riding up on the hips. I knew I wouldn't have that issue (smally hips) which is another reason I rented it. The wiring on the bust was a bit off (I guess from the last rental) and there was a small stain on the bottom which wasn't noticeable unless you're REALLY looking. All in all I had very positive experience w this dress.

The dress is incredibly beautiful. It runs true to size, but if you are short, even if you order the Regular it will probably be a little too long. My first size 2 that was delivered had a hole, so RTR was awesome and they overnighted another size 2 that was perfect! I recommend it!

This was worn to a recent gala & I loved it! The fit was absolutely perfect- I didn't experience any riding up like some of the other reviews mentioned. There is a built in bra that is very supportive and the whole piece is very comfortable. The color really pops- and is a nice change from the black dresses you see so often. The dangly/ loopy pieces that others mentioned are shown in the picture! They are the pieces that cross around the models crotch area. I would wear this dress again in a heartbeat!!!!!

unfortunately it didnt fit. and what threw me back was that it had some dangly bits in the front and side that are not in the Picture. as another reviewer said about the Strapless red dress. if there is a change done on the shoot or during photoshop it would be nice if it would be made public to the costumers who are renting it. i had to run to Nordstrom and buy a size 12 dress for my event. by the end it all worked out. learning experience xx

I did not like this dress at all.The color was not the same as on model,it had loops on each side(not shown)that I had no idea where they went. I was confused by the dress. So happy I had a backup dress which was FLAWLESS.

I really loved this dress. The color is just fab! The fit is perfect for almost any shape and the sweetheart neckline is a plus! The only part I thought was weird were the the two sashes on both side that aren't pictured here. It was like have two handles on each hip. Really strange. Other than that the fit is pretty much true to size.

This dress is horrible. Arrived SO wrinkled that even if it did fit, I wouldn't have been able to wear it. Also, it does not look like the pic AT ALL. It had these two drappy loops hanging on the sides. I'm assuming they were supposed to be laid across the dress, but they were haning down (like sleeves that weren't in your arms).

I really loved this dress and recieved compliments on the color and shape. Only problem I had was with the rouching - the dress needed some help so I had to get it steamed and pressed before I wore it. Another $20 bucks spent but was still well worth it!
