I rented this dress for new years eve and LOVED it. It's funny, you can really tell that a dress is expensive by the fabric, it was so thick.. and it stretched in all the right places. Take a careful look at the model here. Do you see the way the dress makes her look a lil pouchy? Like she has a belly when she clearly does not? I am not as thin as her and I did look a lil pouchy as well. Just a tiny bit, however. Otherwise it hit all the right places and made my boobs look pretty great. Also, the blue detailing you can see in this photo is hardly noticeable at all in person and pictures. I tried buying blue accessories for this dress and it just didn't work. However, overall the dress was a wonderful classic look. I was extremely satisfied with the whole process.

I was mildy disappointed with the fit and quality of this dress. I am 5'5" and 125lbs. I ordered a 4 and a 6. There was little discernable difference between the two sizes. The dress was loose (even on my 34D's) and shifted precariously when I lifted my arms. The fabric formed little rolls along my waist beneath the boning. The dress was well-worn. In fact, in the size four, the boning poked out and scratched me, so I wore the six. Time to retire this one, RTR.

Loved this dress! Unfortunately it ran a little big and the support around the top was breaking through the lining, which caused a lot of discomfort. I weigh 118, busty, and wore a 0, which was big on me.

This dress is OK. The little bump that some other reviewers talked about is the bottom of the boning making a little roll against the lining. I took a wide satin belt from another dress and tied a bow at my waist to cover it- which worked. The stretchy fabric is very forgiving so I would recommend going a size down- I am 35/27/38 and ordered the 4 and 6- and probably needed the 2. The neckline is flattering in photos, and the dress definately appears black, not blue at all.

Subbtle Sexy

I wore this dress to a winter wedding and felt very sexy. The cut is simple so I was able to throw on a blazer without feeling like I was crushing the dress.

Love the experience!

I wore this dress for a formal event, and I have to say that it looked great! The dress material was more stretchy than I anticipated, and there wasn't much "bone" mateiral around the chest for support. I went to a Nicole Miller store and tried on a strapless dress in a few sizes, to know what size to get, and still found the sizing of the dresses to be different. I'm a 36C, and I had trouble keeping the top up, I felt that I was constantly adjusting it up. The material doesn't comes as "blue" as what the picture shows it to be. It's more of a shiny blue-black. Something about the Nicole Miller dresses and the fake puff out in the mid section. I even wore spanx underneath and it still had that slightly illusion that I had a midsection, in which I don't. This dress looks great with a pair of high sexy black heels. Definitely had the guys looking :)

Great party dress!

This was a great dress, which I wore on New Years. It runs slightly small and is fitted, but still looks good on curves:) Good length, sexy but not uncomfortable. I would rent it again!

Very cute & flattering!

This dress is perfect! Very flattering & sexy, aiys tight but the fabric gives a bit, & the boning gives it a great shape. It's a bit short, so be careful if you're on the tall side.

It was my first time renting! I fell in love with the idea instantly!

It was tight but in a good way, it hugged every curve. I got soo many compliments and my boyfriend couldn't keep his hands off!! I think it may be the reason he proposed two weeks later haha

I actually ended up not wearing this dress - fabric was not structured like it is in the photo.

Fit was tighter than I usually like dresses and was much more casual of a dress than I thought it would be.

This dress is AMAZING. No Really, it's wonderful. Got so many compliments on it and it fit perfectly. It's slightly stretchy and there is boning in the top that really hugs your curves and accentuates your assets. I would recommend this dress to anyone and everyone!

I wore this dress for my 23rd birthday which is on halloween for a night out in Atlanta. I got so many compliments! One thing I loved about the dress is that it stayed up on my body. Having larger boobs it is hard for me to wear strapless but this dress fit amazing and made me look really skinny. I also wore Black pumps and nude tights with it since it was cold out! But...Thank you RTR for making my birthday special!

This dress was awesome! I'm between 5'7"-5'8" and always nervous things are going to be too short but this dress wasn't at all. It was a perfect length and had structure to the top so that it didn't fall down. There's stretch to it so it was easy to dance in, and hugged the right places. Gorgeous dress, definitely recommend it!

Beautiful dress, but didn't fit me well. Love the cut, and the boning all around the top was great support but made the dress bunch up at the bottom of it and look odd. Maybe because it was too big around the top, but I ordered a size 4 and was surprised it fit over my larger chest. Overall pretty dress but nothing too amazing.

This is such a great dress! I am always nervous about wearing strapless dresses, but the dress held everything in and looked great. It is very flattering, and so fun to wear. It does run a bit long though, so if you're under 5' 4", keep this in mind. Besides that, it's a great dress that I would definitely recommend!

While it fits true to size, it has a very structured neckline. The sample I received looked like it was a reject b/c the boning in the bodice was poorly done. No amount of adjusting would make it lay properly. Good thing I had a back-up option!

I wore this dress to a sorority semi-formal this weekend, and it was perfect! VERY hot dress, a little on the short side if you're tall (I wore flats). I have a small bust, very small waist, and wider hips, and this dress hugged my curves in all the right places. The fabric has plenty of stretch to it, but the blue is not as noticeable as it is in the picture. The dress almost didn't get to me in time because of a huge snowstorm, but customer service was kind and helpful when I called and the dress arrived just in the nick of time! LOVED my first RTR experience!

LOVED this dress. I wore it for my sorority semi formal, and got so many compliments on it. The boning gives it a very structured look and also keeps the dress up with no issues at all- I'm so used to having to constantly tug strapless dresses up, but I had no issues with this dress. And the pattern and texture of the fabric is absolutely beautiful- you have to see it in person!

This dress was stunning! I felt like a million bucks in this dress! I wore this dress to a wedding in April. It was classy yet sexy all at the same time. I wore it with the Ciner Teardrop Necklace. The fabric was thick, and the boning at the top helped to hold it up. I am a very petite woman, but I feel this dress would look great on any body type! I highly recommend this dress!!

pretty dress. form fitting, so if you have lovely lady lumps, then i'd pass... the dress is clingy, material is strechy. the boning on this particular dress was not intact within the dress, so it poked when i wore it. the dress fits longer on the model than it did on me. don't think i'll be renting this dress again..

This dress is HOT! It looks GREAT, and my boyfriend pretty much loved it, but I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable with any other guy staring me down in this sexy dress (and I'm sure that if you wear it they will)! There's a bit of stretch to the dress, which you can see how it fits on the model... I think it may be more versatile for different occasions on shorter girls, but if you're taller, and the slightest bit modest, this dress seems best saved for a date night. I am solidly in between a size 4 and 6, and can wear both sizes. I fit into both sizes of this dress, but the 4 was obviously tighter and shorter (which kept me from wearing it). The size 6 bust was not as tight as I would have liked it to be to help keep the dress in place, and also kept me from wearing it.

Amazing!!!

This dress is amazing! I'm curvy with 36D's, and it was definitely very body-con on me. I felt the top of the dress was particularly flattering and showcased the "girls" and the smallest part of the waist very well. The thicker fabric helped conceal little flaws. However, it's a VERY sexy dress. I personally would never wear it for anything other than clubbing, which is actually what I rented it for. Tons of compliments. Very highly recommended! Will definitely be renting this again!

The dress really was amazing (lots of “wow” faces) - and girls don't take my word for it - I'm new at this. The bottom half fit great, but the top was too large. I did wear the 0, so I did get the smallest size available, and I think my problem is more the tragic-woeful-story of endowment instead of it being the dress's fault. However, the corset was jabbing me in the stomach/sides all evening long while sitting in it. It fit's much better standing up ;)

I wore this dress to dinner and then to a club for my boyfriend's birthday and I felt amazing in it! I have some curves, so the boning in the top showed off my waist fairly well. The dress is also more black and silver rather than the bluish tint shown in the picture. Also, the top the dress is more curved near the edges (which you can barely see in the picture), so I thought that gave it a bit more character than your average LBD. This dress worked perfectly as my back up dress because my first pick was too wild!

For the most part, I loved this dress! The length was a little long for my taste, but also incredibly easy to "hem" using the fashion tape included in my order. It was classy, comfortable, and for the most part flattering. The only issue I had with it was that it seemed to bunch up fairly easily, which occassionaly brought attention to my "tummy pooch". It was not always as streamlined as I hoped, but still all in all a very good dress!

Great dress!

This dress is definitely more beautiful on the body than on the hanger! It's very form-fitting and curve flattering. I'm a pretty small person, but this dress made me look curvy and accentuated my chest nicely. I'm confident that this dress would look great on any petite(ish) woman. Some of the reviews refer to the fabric as jacquard, but it was pleasantly more stretchy and thin than other garments of this same fabric. My only complaint is that it bunched a bit in the midsection/ hip area, but it didn't bother me too much- it just made the dress look less sleek. Overall, it's an elegant, classic dress that manages to look quite sexy.

Feeling exceptionally sexy!

I wore this for my work Xmas party and it was gorgeous! I felt amazing in it and got a ton of compliments! This was very flattering for my, at the time, 32A chest and really showed off my legs as well. I would definitely rent this dress again. It was perfect!

Feeling great in the dress!

I wore this dress to a wedding and received loads of compliments! It fits well and is very flattering. I typically wear a 2 or 4 and for this dress the 2 fit best. I am busty, so I had to be mindful of my cleavage, but overall I really liked the dress. I even rented it a second time! I paired the dress with my nude heels and the Gemma Redux Kat necklace (also rented from RTR) to add some color. I would definitely recommend the dress for a wedding or formal event!

Love this dress!!

I wore this to a wedding and it was amazing. It is so comfortable and very flattering. I would say that this dress is best for girls who are a little larger on top because of the boning structure of the dress. After reading some reviews I was worried it might be too short for a wedding but I am 5'3" and it was perfect length - just classy enough without being boring. Highly recommend!!

I loved this Nicole Miller dress!

I absolutely loved this dress. Didn't want to take it off and return it! I wore it to a formal event and paired it with simple black jewelry - received so many compliments on it! It was also a great length for this cocktail attire event - since I am shorter it hit at my mid thigh. The only negative was I thought the navy would show more than it did when I wore it since in the picture it looks to have some navy shine to it.

I rented this for last New Years Eve in Vegas and loved it. It fit like a dream! The only thing I was slightly surprised by was that the dress was more black than navy in person, but I didn't really mind.
