Tons of compliments

I got tons of compliments on this dress but was not completely comfortable in it. The fabric bunched at my midsection and was loose in the bust area. I was pulling it up all night! I still loved it, though. The fabric was gorgeous (though it looks quite different in person) and had a nice stretch to it. I would recommend this dress but I would also definitely recommend sizing down for your alternate size!

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.

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!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Love the experience!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
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 :)

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!!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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 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.

90% Happy With This Dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This was my first time renting a dress and I couldn't be happier with my experience. The dress showed up on time, in great condition and with easy send back instructions. As other reviewers mentioned, the dress is much darker in person- you could hardly see any blue. I wore it on NYE so I was a little disappointed in the lack of glitz, but it would be a great pick for a wedding! It fit true to size, very fitted- much more so than it appears on the model. I too had slight issues with the fabric forming a pouch in the mid section due to boning, but it was minor and still looked great. I would recommend this dress just be prepared for it to be much darker and tighter than it appears here!

Hot dress!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size

I got this dress for a night out in Vegas and it was definitely appropriate for the occasion. The dress is very snug, short and accentuates the bust, which made me a little self-conscious (I wouldn't recommend this for full-figured busts). However, I got tons of compliments on the dress and definitely felt great.

The dress is a bit short and it is definitely tight but in a way that a bigger size would be too big. Otherwise it's a very fun dress!

I probably would not have bought a strapless dress, but I'm glad a took the risk and rented one!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Before I get critical, I have to say that I loved this dress and renting a formal instead of buying one is a BRILLIANT idea (and I swear I'm not on the take from RTR!). I agree with other reviewers who say the dress is more black than navy. It's like a stretchy brocade, which is really comfortable and flattering -- lumps are smoothed out and the dress moves with you. God bless spandex! The dress I received in the mail, however, was not in the best condition. Some of the boning in the bodice was slightly poking through the lining. This made some parts of the interior sharp and scratchy. I hope the dress I wore was retired after I returned it. That said, I would compare my RTR experience with borrowing a dress from a friend -- it wasn't a new dress, but you got the sense that it was loved because it was worn out. I think if you're expecting a like-new dress from RTR, you will be disappointed. If I were being honest about rating the condition of the dress I received, I'd give it two-and-a-half to three stars, but the benefits I received from wearing the dress were four stars. My favorite part of the dress was the neckline, which is more scooped/sweetheart than the photo expresses. Very flattering! The dress was a bit shorter than I expected, but the stretch fabric keeps you covered.

I enjoyed this dress so much, I was a little sad to send it back. I wore it for NYE and was very comfortable throughout the whole evening (even after much food, drink and general merriment!) I loved the neckline and the bottom hit right above the knee, which was perfect for me. Only real complaint was that I had a habit of pulling it up, but I do that with most strapless dresses. Also, in agreement with other reviews, the color is more black than blue - but it's still a great dress!

I wore this dress to a wedding and it was gorgeous. I loved how the sides came to a point and how it wasnt skin tight. However, since I wear a D cup I did feel a little insecure about how much cleavage ended up showing. I would be careful to make sure that youre comfortable with cleavage at your event!

The dress fit like a glove. I was so comfortable and didn't have to wear a bra. The only thing is it was a little short due to me being a little taller. I loved it! I was heavier at this time than I am now. And usually wore size 10 or 12 dresses. I believe this one was a 10 that ended up working.
