Super comfortable and flattering.
I wore this to a black tie wedding and it was super comfortable and so flattering. I typically wear an 8, but was more comfortable in the 10 given that the dress is skin tight. The only thing is that it was a bit short in the front with heels. Not a big deal, but I would get a 10L vs. the 10R if I had it to do again. If you're over 5'7, definitely look into a long size.

sad unable to make this dress work
dress was elegant, but I was only able to try size 4 and 8. size 4 was too small, size 8 fit except that the shoulder top area was too loose, not sure that even size 6 would work, but was beautiful fabric and would have worked with 3" heels

Realizing it wasn't actually black tie.
This dress looked amazing! It fit very well and was very comfortable. It does need a strapless bra.

This dress was amazing! I felt like a million dollars!
I'm not usually a fancy, dress-up type, but I didn't want to return this dress! Everything about it was spectacular, including the compliments. You won't be disappointed! My only regret is the lack of pics of me in it! :)

Could wear this dress over and over!!!!
THIS DRESS ROCKS!! Style and fit flatters most any body type. Slight train adds such elegance! Neckline and back are gorgeous. Material is thin enough to make the dress light and easy to wear, but high quality enough to stay true to the Nicole Miller name. I was complimented on the dress a billion times. Seriously, you will not want to send this one back!

Black tie wedding dress
I absolutely loved this dress! Received lots of compliments. I wore this to a black tie wedding. I did not need a bra with the dress. The open back was a nice surprise. The details over the stomach definitely hide any pooch. I am 5'2, wore a regular length dress and had on 4 inch heels and the dress just touched the ground, exactly what I was looking for. Perfect dress to dance in since it is not restricting.

This was my first RTR- I was relieved that everything went smoothly!
I typically wear a 2 and ended up wearing the 0. Either size would have worked. I loved the fit, felt very comfortable.

The dress looked great, but the top closure broke halfway through the night.
The length was good, at 5'2'' with a 3'' heel, the drag was minimal. It hugged in all the right places, but the top closure broke halfway through the night which was most unfortuane. I wore this to a business school "prom" and it was perfect for dancing- super comfortable.

Super simple and classy
Perfect for a black tie event. I was working, so I didn't want to stand out too much, and this was the perfect mix of professional and elegant! It fit perfectly, and I didn't even need to wear a bra (and with 36Ds, that is hard to come by)

Beautiful but runs small
This was my backup dress and I almost wore it - the fit is very flattering and the straps are gorgeous, but I was not able to order a backup size and the 2R was too tight across my stomach and the length was a little bit too short with heels. I am 5'4" and 120 lbs and I think a 4R would have been much better

Great dress for black tie wedding!
Glamorous dress with sequins on the straps and back! Was a bit long for me at 5'2" even in the petite length, so be sure to wear a heel with it if you're shorter.

I got so many compliments on this dress! The cut was very flattering :)
I ordered a long because I am very tall (5'11). I found the long to not be quite long enough. Especially with a heel. I imagine most others won't have this issue, however.

Simple elegant black dress.
This dress fit perfectly. I normally wear an 8 and this fit. I did need to wear a bra, however you might be able to get away with none if you're comfortable that way. The cap sleeve has a nice bit of glitter. It sits smoothly against skin, and has just enough wrinkle to it to be flattering. I wore a Regular length, with about 2 inch heels. I am unable to wear heels anymore and this dress length was perfect with just a small heel. If you're going with a larger heel, I would get the Long. It's difficult to find an elegant simple black dress and this was perfect.

I loved this dress! It was the perfect length with my 5in heels and I got a lot of compliments.
I didn't have to wear a bar which was great since the cut of the sleeves would have probably only permitted a strapless which don't work very well with my 34D's. The sequins on the sleeves were a little scratchy but I forgot about it in a short while. There was one little snag on the front of the dress but it was barely noticeable. 5'2", 34D, curvy, 125lbs

Dress was beautiful and very comfortable!
The dress fit great. I was able to dance all night and look beautiful. The material was thick and very forgiving to body imperfections. I'm also very busty (36DD) and was able to not wear a bra which is very hard for me! The length was great with my heels (I'm 5'7). The only issue I had was the button on the back broke off walking into the hotel for the event. Luckily the hotel gift shop had a sewing kit to replace the button. Overall great dress..just check the button!

This dress was awesome--completely comfortable yet elegant. The little bit of stretch makes it a safe bet for anyone (I ordered too late to get a back-up size and my normal size worked perfectly). Super sexy on the bum. The back was gorgeous but didn't require a complicated bra (just a regular strapless). I would order this dress again as well as other dresses form this designer, LOVED it!

The dress fit beautifully and was very comfortable. I was complimented often. The trouble I had was when I walked the bottom of the zipper slipped to the left, to my hip and the lining bunched up around my waist. Very odd. I spent the whole evening adjusting it. It was the correct size all my clothes are 6- I weigh 125 so it wasn't too small. Loved it but for that.

Wore this to a black tie wedding and it was perfect! Flattering, body-hugging fit. The mini-train is a nice touch. The regular length was just right and at 5'5" and 117lbs I fit in both the size 2 and size 4 but went with the 2. Snug enough for me to go bra-less. Really really happy with my rent the runway experience overall.

GORGEOUS Dress! What an easy and wonderful experience. VERY comfortable. Exposed, edgy zipper in the back. Very flattering dress that needed a statement necklace (for my taste). Profile was stunning, and the back is lovely. ONLY ANNOYANCE: dress was short on me. I had to buy flats. Heels were out of the question. With flats it worked, yet it was still not floor length...nobody noticed though, because it was so fierce :)

Did you get the long or the regular length? I'm the same height as you, plan on wearing flats and want to rent this dress but not sure what length to get!

This was my back up dress which i did not wear. The rouching at the front of the dress was not figure flattering. It just made it look like the dress didn't fit me and it diminished my waist. I think it would work better for someone with a little bit of a tummy. The visible silver zipper in the back is not pretty. It belongs on a more edgy, short dress not an evening gown. I do agree with what someone else said about it your butt look good.

I am literally obsessed with this dress! It is soo beautiful! I was really nervous after picking my sizes because i thought I should have gotten a size up(according to my friends Nicole Miller runs small). When it came today though the smaller of the 2 sizes that I ordered ended up being the one to fit. My event is not until tomorrow and I am soo excited to wear this!

This dress is beautiful and classy. I got it as my backup. I decided not to wear it simply because of the train. I made sure to order the "Long" version of this dress because of my height. However, even with 3 1/2 inch heels, the dress was still slightly too long, especially in the back. The train was pretty, but as I walked it got caught under my heels. The event I was attending was a dancing event, so I decided this wouldn't work. Still a beautiful dress - the ruching is very forgiving, the sequin details at the shoulder are beautiful and make it unnecessary to wear a necklace.

I rented this dress for a black tie event for my husband's work. I had a baby two months ago and am 4 sizes bigger than pre-pregnancy, so I was hesitant about how anything would look. This dress is absolutely gorgeous!!! I couldn't have been happier. It is extremely flattering even for bigger sizes (I got a 12). The waist has gathering that hides rolls well but at the same time the shape is fitted and slimming with a slightly stretchy fabric. The bust is low enough to give classy cleavage, but nothing that would make you feel uncomfortable that you are bearing too much. Only needed a strapless bra, nothing fancy for underwear. Beautiful, beautiful dress!!

I ordered this dress for my senior prom and I couldn't have been happier with it! I ordered the 4 and the 6 in case it was too snug but the four was perfect! The fabric is amazingly comfortable and had a very elegant flow to it. Simple yet very classy, I would HIGHLY recommend this dress! Also, it came two days early and I got an extra day on my rental. RTR is awesome!

I rented this dress for my prom. I'm not usually a dress girl, but when I put this on I felt sexy. I ordered the long, because I'm 6 feet tall, and it was perfect! It was a little snug but that just added to the sexiness of the dress. I can't describe how wonderful this dress is! It fits perfectly! Hugs my body in just the right places!

I ordered this as my primary dress for my husband's annual company party. I ordered the 4R and the 4 was completely true to size. The dress looked amazing and was okay for larger busted people - it was perfect on me and I'm a D/DD. The dress worked well with spanx and a strapless bra. It has a bit of stretch to it, so it hid every imperfection in the torso area. The length was just barely long enough for me with 3 inch heels, so if you are short like me and want to wear 5 inch heels, then go with the long length. I didn't end up wearing this dress because my back up ended up being slightly more comfy and edgy, but this would have worked out great as well. Btw - the model's bum looks kind of strange in the picture, but it is fine in person. I would definitely recommend for all ages... completely appropriate and classy.

I was wearing Toms wedge heal. Im not sure how high they are. I think they are two inch and i still had a good three inches of dress on the floor.
