Great and convenient service! 1st time renting.
I'm not quite 5ft tall and the length of this dress was perfect. I wore 5 1/2 inch heels. Overall, beautiful color, great fit! Hugs all the curves in the right places.

How beautiful Aaron thought I looked.
This dress looks incredible on. Many guest at the wedding, both men and woman, gave me compliments. As a new mom it felt incredible to wear such an elegant dress and look stunning at the same time. My only suggest is to consider ordering the long if you are wearing a higher heel, I'm 5'5 and the dress was a touch short with my 2 1/2 inch heels on.

Didn't fit well
The dress was nice and I got lots of compliments, however it did not fit as well as I would have liked. The gathering around the stomach area was not flattering. The color was great! The back was also really nice. I would definitely rent a size smaller than you usually are

Fits really awkward
This dress is really really deceiving. The color is beautiful but the fit is way off. I am 5'10", 125 lbs with a 34C chest. The waist was HUGE, really baggy with weird ruching that was completely unflattering at best. It was also way too tight in the chest and too short (in flats) for me. I was not entirely impressed with the fabric either, kinda thin and cheap. I really don't know who this dress would flatter.

I wear a 4 or 6 - this 6 was bordering on being too tight to wear in public. The fabric looked cheap. The 6L was not long enough. Luckily this was my backup style and the Badgly Mishka strapless 6L was perfect.

Everything went perfectly!!!
Here’s a detailed review – hope it and the pics helps make your decision! First off, those who said the fabric of this material is cheap…definitely NOT…it’s a VERY comfortable silk with a lining – and I do consider myself to be of fairly high standards. As for the pleats that others say lay weird – that’s one of the characteristics of the dress and what make it such an adorable and classy style. I am 5’5 and weigh 120 lbs. My measurements are chest (34C), true waist (26), lower waist (28), hips (33). I ordered the 2L and the 6L (4L was not available). The 2L fit from the waist down, but was way too tight in the chest and shoulders. The 6L fit PERFECTLY!! I will admit that there was almost an issue with the length. I like my gowns to hit the floor and with a 4” heel (no platform), this one just grazed the floor. So, those taller than 5’5 consider your heel height! So glad I did not order the short length!! I will also admit that I am disappointed that they hemmed the train off of the dress. One of the things I love about Nicole Miller gowns are her trains, but I guess I do understand why they would remove it. Despite that…this dress was AWESOME!! I was told that I was ravishing and got TONS of compliments on it!! Can't wait to find an excuse to rent from RTR again!!

The dress was so flattering, My date and I won classy couple!!
I'm 5'8 but very small so i rented a 0L however it was way to short even with flats, i would highly suggest if you tall getting one size bigger than you regularly wear, for the dress is stretchy and runs semi small anyways so one size up would fit perfectly

Customer service is phenomenal!
This was a back up dress, as I was worried about another being too low cut. I usually wear a 0/2, but this dress was obscene in it's tightness. I am a bit large in the bust, and the girls were trying to escape from my armpits. My hubs is a photog, and he enjoyed the rear view :). To be fair, I believe I put on the 0 by mistake in the photos. The other dress I rented for the formal was perfect!

Stunner!
I rented this dress for a black tie event that my husband's company was having. I ordered it the 4L and the 6L because I'm bigger up top and can never be too careful. I also added the black version in a 6L as a back up. When they arrived, I was so pleased with the condition they're in. They 6L fit better for me than the 4L but was not as long as I would have liked. So I tried on the black one and it was much bigger and longer than the red. At the last minute I had to run out and find shorter shoes and it still was on the shorter side. Also, while I was steaming it the night of, I noticed a black stain along the hem. I called customer service and they apologized and gave me 25% off of my next order. I wore the dress anyway because it was in the train and not very noticable at all. That being said, the dress was stunning and I got tons of complements all night. I will definitely rent again. All and all a great experience!

Red Carpet Ready
Do you enjoy being the wall flower? Standing back and admiring everyone? Sipping your cocktail and quietly chatting with your friends? DON'T rent this dress! You will be the center of attention. Receiving complements left and right. This dress fit beautifully (with a pair of Spanx to hold in the problem areas). It hugs your whole body, which is hard to tell on the model in 2-D. It fits just like the model though, and with a 2-in heel it just grazed the floor. Definitely recommend a Long. I can't tell you how much I loved wearing this dress! I wanted to keep it!

Gorgeous but tight
This dress is a beautiful deep red and the cut is beautiful. However, I ended up not wearing the dress as I felt it ran a little small and it was too tight in the hip area. This is a dress that is not forgiving, and is not for the timid.

Size up
I rented this for a formal wedding and was bummed when the size I ordered didn't fit. I'm generally around a size 2 and ordered a 4 based on the other reviews. The 4 was VERY tight on the hips and bust line. I'm also around 5'6" and it was probably about 3 inches too short (with no shoes on) so think about going up a couple of sizes and ordering a long!

Beautiful Dress.
The fit of the dress was just right, but the length was a little short. I am 5'8 and wore 3 inch heels. The 6L came to my ankles. I am also large in the bust and hips so you might want to consider a different dress if you are taller and busty.

Loved the color and the simple lines with a classic, elegant feel. Very Hollywood!
The dress was very form fitting and stunning, but the length was a real problem. I was worried about this after reading other reviews but measured the 59" length from shoulder to hem and thought it would still work. I think this dress would have been absolutely amazing if the length was longer for taller girls. A larger size may have been helpful as it wouldn't have hugged the body so close making it even shorter. Overall, though, the dress is a beautiful color and I loved how it looked minus the short length.

Feeling va-va-voom walking down the staircase into the formal event.
I rented this dress for a black tie gala. It was technically my backup dress, but the Carlos Miele coral gown I rented didn't quite work- both sizes were too small. I had rented Nicole Miller before in a size 2L so that's what I did here. The dress fit, but it was pretty tight (as in, I couldn't really eat anything in it tight). Plus it had some stitches loose in the bust area. I called RTR and Kristin overnighted me the 4L, which was a perfect fit! Dress hugged my curves but I could still move on the dance floor. Thanks RTR!

Dress was very pretty. Ordered in long length, but it was still a little short for my tall frame. Dress is very form fitting, so I would definitely order a size up for the alternate.

Beautiful dress - even though a snug fit, it has a lot of movement!
This dress is a beautiful cherry red color and will work for many skin tones. It is easy to accessorize. I would order a longer length - I still made it work, but it's definitely on the shorter end.

Fabric not at all what I expected. Ended up returning the dress.
The color of the dress was gorgeous, exactly what I wanted. I don't know if I missed it but I thought the fabric of the dress was more structured, from the pictures I thought it would be tafetta or some sort of crepe de chine. It's actually a very stretchy fabric so it shows every lump and bump. Even with a pair of spanks the pleats down the sides of the dress make it look like the fabric is pulling and puckering, when it's not. You have to wear a strapless bra because the neckline cuts out so far on the sides. If you have bigger breasts, you cannot go braless with this dress because the fabric is too stretchy to provide any support. My other concern was how wrinkled the skirts of the dresses were. I assumed I would have to iron the dress or get it pressed at the cleaners but there were no instructions and the tags were completely blacked out and unreadable on both dresses. I typically wear a size 6 but it was to tight in the bust. The size 8 fit better but was too big in the waist.

I had to return it! TOO SMALL!
I would not recommend this dress unless you are very petite. I am typically a size 4 or 6 (and 5'9), and I rented a 6 and 8 because I know designer gowns typically run small. I tried on the 8, and it was SKIN TIGHT! I am not large by any means, and it was extremely unflattering. It created "rolls" on the sides due to the rushing detail. Also, if you are over 5'6, you DEFINITELY need a long. Unfortunately, a long was not available so I had to return it because the regular came up to my calves! If you attempt to try this dress, I definitely recommend going up a few sizes!

RUNS SMALL! Didn't get to wear it after all...
The cut and fabric were so much more beautiful in person, I will definitely rent again...almost wore it anyway but chickened out at the last second. If you are 5'6" or taller, go for the long versions. And for me I'll need about 2 sizes up from what I usually am. (Typically rent a 0 or 2...the 4 was screaming for life!)

Not a winner
I actually chose this dress for my event, however, I needed the larger size to get a better fit. However, it just wasn't quite right... and was REALLY long. It was a beautiful dress, but just not right for me.

I normally wear a six in Nicole Miller dresses, but the eight fit much better for this dress. I am 5'4", and ordered the short but would have been better off with the long. Beautiful color, the dress was fantastic. I would order again for sure.

Pretty, but SHORT!
Very beautiful dress. The size 2 fit like a glove, however it was incredibly short. Even at 5'4, I couldn't wear heels with it, so I ended up wearing my back-up dress to the event. It was beautiful, but I should have ordered a "long".

The size 8 was perfect. The only thing I felt was that the long length was not long enough. I wore 4" heels and while I'm tall, I am certainly not that tall and it would be difficult for anyone taller than myself to have the length be long enough especially if they wear heels. That said, I loved the dress and felt amazing in it!

I felt like a million bucks!
I rented this dress for the ALMA Awards and it was a hit!! I LOVE THIS DRESS!! It hugged all my curves and the color was the perfect shade of red. I rented the regular and the long, and I highly suggest the long. I would also go up a size. The 2 was snug but the 4 fit perfectly. I stood out from the crowd of black dresses. It's such a sexy dress, tons of compliments. I will be renting this dress again!!! ***It wouldn't let me put in my size worn, which was a 4***

This dress is a little bit short to wear with heels (3 or 4 in), and I'm only 5'5". If you're planning to pair with sky-high heels, you might try a long. I agree with other reviews that the fabric looks a little bit cheap. It fits/looks as pictured, and it's a sexy dress. For opening night at the opera, I chose to wear my alternatie choice, the Milly Ravish Ruffle Gown because it was classier. I typically wear a 2 in nice retail stores (Ann Taylor, J.Crew), but was definitely a 4 in this dress.

Definition of false advertisement. Fabric looked cheap, the straps were awkward. The back of the dress was beautiful, but the pleats were bizarre and didn't flatter my body at all. I can't believe retail this dress is worth $640. I went to Minneapolis and bought a dress for $30 that looked 100,000 times better on me.

This dress photographs like a dream! If your over 5'6 get the LONG. It was just barely long enough to wear 2 inch heels with. I am usually a 6 in the waist and a 10 in the bust and while this was a little tight in a bust, it was a nice fit otherwise.
