Beautiful fit and color!
It fit me really well, was a bit long but with heels it made for the perfect length. I received a ton of compliments!

The body of the dress is true to size, but watch out for the length. I´m 5`4" and wore 4" heels, and the hem was about an inch too long in the front. Also, there is a small train in the back.

I am usually a 10 but i got the 6 to and the six fits me just perfect. It is a pretty cut but doesnt look like a 550 dollar dress. The material looks shiny in the picture but very dull in life. Other than that it is gorgeous i got many compliments at the wedding i wore it to.

This is the PERFECT dress for any cocktail or formal affair. The color is absolutely stunning and I accessorized with the Silver Glitz Bangle Set (which are also AMAZING!). I received several rave comments on both the dress and bangles. Thanks RTR!

I actually ended up not wearing the dress at all. Because of the material, it arrived pretty wrinkly. I did not like the way the material laid on my midsection - it was thin and saggy and did not flatter my body. The dress is also very long with a train! Gorgeous color, just not the right dress for me.

I am 5'4, 135 pounds, 24% body fat, 29 waist, and the 10 was too big, the 8 was a nice size but I definitely could have gone to a 6. This dress wowed everyone I showed the online picture to, but when it came time to wear it, it fell flat. "Middle school dance" was the proclamation from my fiance, and when I showed the front desk (I was staying at a hotel for a wedding) they called it "prom dress-like". Not what I was going for! Not to mention, the dress was entirely too long and I was stepping on it, AND there's a train in the back.

This dress is not as bright in person as it is in the picture. The dress has a stunning tight fit and makes your waist look super tiny. I wore this dress to a black tie charity dinner and I saw at least 5 people in the same dress, different color.

Love this dress. Such a beautiful fit, too. I wear a 2 in J. Crew jeans and the 4R fit me like a glove. Loved every moment in this dress. The train was glamorous and only slightly annoying--it kept me from dancing until I scooped up the fabric and knotted it at my calf before rocking out with the band.

I wore this dress to a formal company banquet at a 5-star resort and it was a major hit. It fit so perfectly and the color was so stunning. Everyone gave me compliments all night and my boyfriend drooled over it. He actually picked it out. It accentuates the booty, but tastefully and the cut out in the back is so sexy, but still classy. The color really is this bright, and it looks awesome with silver! I recommend this dress to anyone. Its gorgeous and would look great on most figures. I am always a size 6 so i ordered a 6R because I'm only 5"4 and the fit was PERFECT. Not too long, too tight or anything. Just right. BEAUTIFUL dress! Oh, and SOOO comfortable :)

While the reviews read that this dress fits small, for me, it was completely true to size. I am tall, slender, with a smallish bust and this dress fit me like a glove. The top of the dress was structured in a way that it held up my strapless bra really well. It was easy to move in, I could go from sitting to standing with no problem. The only reason it did not get 5 stars is the ruching. It was just awkward in how it laid on my stomach area. But as long as I stood up straight it was hardly noticeable. I wore this to a black tie event and got so many compliments and asked "where did you get that?" the whole night.

This dress is not as vibrant as the picture. It's still a pretty dress but didn't give me or my figure the pop I was looking for.....which I why I went with the Amethyst Sweetheart Gown instead. Getting a second dress for $25 is AWESOME...and I'm so glad I chose that option.

Stood out in the formal crowd in a luscious blue.
Even in considerable heels, the hem tends to drag. I didn't notice the train when I ordered it, but it turned out to be very pretty. Also, there was some extra slack around the tummy that seemed unnecessary. Lots of compliments. The color really pops!

This dress was a great choice for me. I wore it to my senior prom. I ordered it in a size 4 and got the size 2 as back up. According to the chart i'm a size 4, but the dress was loose on me so i'm glad i got the back up size. The color is not as bright as in the picture, it is more of a royal blue which I liked better. The stomach and back area has some ruching in it. I thought it looked a little weird, but my mom thought it added to it. It's an overall beautiful dress.

comfortable, light-weight, elegant. LOVE IT!!!
i used this dress for engagement photos about one year ago. i have never put on a dress that was this body conforming, yet comfortable. it accentuated my curves without making me feel like i was being overly revealing. the details of the dress that i can vividly remember is that the fabric was light in weight and the train was a lot of fun to play with and reposition :) it's an elegant, vibrant dress that i would strongly recommend to anyone that wants to feel like kate middleton for an evening.

I got this in a 0 and it fit perfectly. Normally I am a 2 or xs. The fabric is a little dull but in pics it looked great. Also it is long and the train does make it annoying if you have a lot of dancing. But, I was happy with it and it fit my curves perfect. Also the RTR staff is very helpful with accesories.

This dress was lovely. It was snug in all the right places...except my waist. I have a small waist and the synching around that area did not pull properly simply because my waist was too small. Regardless, the gown was still beautiful and I felt great in it. Nicole Miller makes wonderful dresses! If I had worn the dress again, though, I would have found a better bra. The time when I wore it I decided not to sport one but I ended up looking like I had no support so...I wouldn't do that again.

I read all of the reviews for this dress and the others which were different colors. I ordered this one and the red to see which I would like more. The pleats on the dress are awkward, they didn't compliment me at all. The blue dress was a size smaller than the red but was longer in height. The back was really pretty, but the front ruined it. I don't know who was wearing this dress in the previous reviews, but they did not relate to my experience. I sent it back an hour after I got them. **side note - if you have a chest, it ain't gonna work.

The dress showed up before expected and the return process was so easy.
This dress was actually my second choice, but when I tried it on it quickly became my first. I wore it to my husband's Marine Corps ball in San Diego and I was getting more compliments from strangers than he was in his dress blue uniform during Veteran's Day weekend. The color popped on my skin tone and hugged all the right places. I paired it with some silver strappy heels, a diamond tennis bracelet, and some diamond pear shaped earrings. I skipped a necklace and went for a giant royal blue poinsettia flower hairpiece I made myself to put in my updo. I give this dress a 10, and will suggest this site to everyone. Great experience.

The dress was mis-shipped by UPS and RTR staff worked to have it re-routed overnight so I had this amazing dress in time for the black- tie wedding!! Amazing customer service.
This dress was amazing. Fit beautifully with a little extra material in the mid section so there were no spanx needed!! I'm 5'8 138 pounds and with 3.5 inch heels, the 6L was perfect. Beautiful neck line and interesting back opening.. I got TONS of compliments!! Highly recommend! Perfect for the black tie wedding I wore it to.

I was repeatably told I looked beautiful and that the dress was amazing ! I was very happy and it made my night that every thing went well with the rental .
I loved the way the dress fit. It is simple, classy, and timeless. I was skeptical at first because I had never ordered anything online, but this dress certainly exceeded my expectations.The second size they allow you to choose makes you a little less nervous about it not fitting because if the first one doesn't fit you have a back up. I was complimented all night long on how beautiful the dress was. Thank you RTR! I will definitely be renting again in the future :)

The color brought out my eyes!
While formfitting, this dress was comfortable and as forgiving as a column dress can be. I would recommend the long - at 5'5" with heels, it wast just a touch on the shorter side. Has a really nice little train and gathers at the back. I accessorized with a belt to accentuate the waist.

Gorgeous Dress
This is a gorgeous dress -- the color is spectacular. My only caveat is that I'm 5'2" and the 6R was pretty long, even with 3" heels. I bought the hemming tape, as suggested, but the silk is so delicate, it was really hard to use it, without it looking obvious. I'd say I had to take it up a good 4" -- so maybe that's a stretch with tape. Anyway -- gorgeous dress. Got tons of compliments!

Gorgeous!!
This gown was beautiful!! I ordered it as a back up for my company’s formal Christmas party. The only reason why I didn’t wear this dress.. I’m “Jessica Rabbit curvy” and it just wasn’t appropriate on my body for this event.. though the color was gorgeous!! The best advice I can give to a new renter as I was… Go to the big expensive store and try on the specific Designers’ gowns to get a feel for sizing.. The entire process was super easy and seamless. Thanks RTR .. and I’ll be back!!

When I put the dress on and my mom's face just lit up. I had ordered another dress just in case, but we both knew this was the one.
I wore this to a Christmas Tree Gala last year and LOVED it!!! The dress is gorgeous and really slims you down. The design seems to make your body go on forever and the fabric is beautiful! Very well made. Plus, the color really pops! It's sexy without revealing anything, and I loved the little cutout in the back!!! With 2.5'' heels this dress dropped perfectly to the ground (I'm 5'5'' and ordered the shortened version). Rent this now!

Perfect dress for a formal occasion!
I wore this dress to a New Years Eve wedding. The color is beautiful! I felt very glamorous and was able to stand out amongst the many black dresses. The dress is extremely comfortable too. I am only 5'2 so the dress was a little long even in my highest heels. Also, note there is a bit of a train to this dress, so it wasn't very hora friendly, but I made the most out of it. I usually wear a 2 , but it was unavailable so I went with the 4. It was a little loose so this dress definitely runs true to size.

Great color!
The color of this dress (which is slightly less bright than the RTR picture) was a hit! A lot of compliments on the color, not exactly the dress itself. The dress fit true to size and was a little long for my height (5'4") but I wore tall heels to help compensate. The material is slightly stretchy and very forgiving. My only complaint was the train on the back. If you will be sitting most of the event, it should be great. For me, I spent quite some time walking around and dancing, and no less than 10 people stepped on the train (again, thank goodness for the stretchy material). I would recommend for a formal event.

The nonstop compliments!
The color of this dress caught my eye and I loved the back. I wore this to a black tie wedding and I received compliments all night long. I wore with silver shoes and a pair of sapphire/diamond drop earrings. I felt like I was ready for the red carpet! I'm tall so I went with the long and it was the right decision. Runs true to size (I wear between a 6/8) and the fit is so flattering. Took the picture with no makeup/accessories but had to share!

Easy to dress in designer gowns for less and shipping is quick! (:
So I was invited to go to Mo-Prom which required to wear modest clothing. I had to order the dress in one day and hope it would work. Unfortunately, I had to cover the dress because of my shoulders were showing, but the gown looked beautiful on. If you are looking for a last minute dress and worried about it fitting you. This might be the dress, because of the gorgeous stretchy material! They didn't have a 2 so I had to cross my fingers and order a 0L and 4L. The dress's material was very easy to wear, form fitting and danceable in. I'm 5'10, wore flats with this dress and I could have wore short heels with it still, but I didn't want to be even taller then my date. (: Oh and the color it AMAZING!

It worked perfect as a houseparty dress
This dress is very flattering and the color was great. It fits snug through the waist but not too tight. It was very easy to move around in the dress.
