The dress fit like a glove. I wore it for a party in Las Vegas, and it was perfect for the occasion. I wear a size 4 usually, and the fit was right on. I love that one shoulder draped off.

My date thought I looked incredible and I turned heads everywhere.
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I rented this and one other dress to have two to choose from for a wedding. I went with the other (City Lights dress) because it was more formal, but I still really loved this dress and it would've worked just fine too. I wore it out on the town instead. Some people complained about the funky sleeve; I liked it just fine but changed it up and wore it dropped over my shoulder. This dress is sexy as it hugs your curves but it isn't low cut and the hem almost touched my knees, so it shouldn't be uncomfortable in a conservative setting. I usually wear an 8 or 10 and the 8 for this dress fit perfectly.

It was thinner and had nicer material than I expected, and I could tell it was worn before because one of the seams was a little funny, but it was nothing noticeable. It does run a lot longer than you would expect, which was fine where it hit my leg but it was definitely past my knees, which is misleading from the photo (then again, I'm super short). It is also slightly purple-black, so I wasn't able to wear my red heels so be aware of that! But it was a beautiful dress for a great price and I wanted to keep it.

This dress didn't look like the picture. It's very long so you have to hike it up to make it short enough to go above the knee but it wouldn't stay there so I ended up fidgeting with it a lot. On top of that the arm cuff is confining. I've rented a lot and this was probably my least favorite.

Beautiful dress, but they're not kidding about fitted. Wear spanx.
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
Okay, to explain the "other", I bought, not rented, this dress. If I buy something I'm not just going to wear it once. The way the sleeve is set up, you can barely move your arm. Not bad if all you're doing is eating or the like, but if you like dancing or giving hugs or even have to lift something above your head you're S.O.L. This is very much a "Sit there and look pretty" kind of dress in that regard. If you get it and are even a little self-conscious about your body, wear spanx or something with a similar purpose. It shows EVERYTHING. I'm not fat (or pregnant) and I had someone ask when the baby was due. Negatives aside, it is a gorgeous dress. If it weren't for the sleeve, it would be a decent dancing dress because it hugs without constricting. It's great for larger-chested women. I'm a 34 H and there was room for them. However, you don't have to be large-chested to wear it... My roommate and I wear a similar size and she's a more... um... normal (c-d, not sure exact) size, and it fit her beautifully (let her try it on because she thought it was pretty and I wanted to see if it would work on her too). Overall, I'm glad I bought it. Definitely worthwhile.

I wore this dress for a bridal shower
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I liked it over all, once I had it on... Between the zipper location and sleeve I had to wear the larger size to get it on and for my arm to be comfortable. The main issue that I had with this dress is the sleeve, it is kind of akward. I couldn't raise my arm and it was tight. Putting my arm in any position besides straight down was not happening.

I loved this dress. It was just as described and everything I expected it to be. The seem that runs diagonal from the hip to the center at the bottom is a little strange, but I didn't think much of it. I could wear a normal bra, and was able to dance the night away in comfort.

This dress really shows off the goods!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
I rented a dress for a Vegas weekend last minute and unfortunately most of my top choices were gone already. I picked this dress because I love prints. The dress was even better than I expected!! The fabric was very stretchy but still looked amazing. The print and the asymmetrical seam in the front with the gathering was flattering. Be careful when picking shoes because the gray areas in the print are more on the brown side so a gray shoe would not work. Black or nude would be perfect. The only downside (and the only reason I gave this dress 4/5) is the sleeve/art area. It's very confusing. The dropped part on the right arm just hung there like an extra flap. I ended up putting my arm through the middle and keeping the flap under my arm. I also used fashion tape to tape both straps a little off the shoulder to hide the flap under my arm. It worked out great and looked amazing but it did take a little work.

Very cool dress! Cut is flattering and print is eye catching. It's also very comfortable. The colors were not great on my olive skin - it washed me out - so I didn't end up wearing it. For someone with fair or dark skin it would be a smash!

I ordered this dress last minute out of desperation from not finding a dress for my friend's wedding. This is the second Nicole Miller I've ordered and it is gorgeous without even trying too hard. The fit around the stomach and hips was perfect and the length was exactly what I was going for. I received sooo many compliments the whole night about the rented dress and earings. I'm looking forward to renting from RTR again for a 4th time :)

Bunching in the waist and band at the thighs can be a little akward, but not enough that it changes anything in the fit or look of the dress. Really depends on how short/long you want to wear it! LOVED the dress, fit great, good lines at the chest/shoulders!! LOTS of compliments on the style, pattern, design!

This dress had a great feel to it~ the fabric breathed and moved with my body and the fit was very good. Flattering silhouette and definitely helps to hide any tummy bulges. I rented sizes 4 and 6 and found that I was more comfortable with the 6, though I could have the 4, just not get to move around a lot with it. I'm a 34D and there was enough room at the bust. However, I wasn't happy with the odd cutout sleeve style and raising my arm definitely was weird, I almost felt like I would rip the dress there every time I raised my arm! Fashion tape helps with the shoulder part on that side, it's going to keep falling off if you don't use it otherwise!

the top of the dress is too tight for a full chest although the body fit was perfect. i ordered a 6 & it was too small on top. didn't end up wearing the dress. i should have ordered the 8. the arm/piece of fabric loop is awkward though.

This dress was very beautiful. I fit both the 4 and the 6 and ended up wearing the 4 to a charity event. Like others, I wore the arm detail underneath my arm instead of as shown on the model. I would say that it seemed somewhat large in the neck/shoulder area. Even with the 4, the sleeve with no detail ended up being kind of angled over that shoulder. It looked fine, just slipped a bit during the night. Still it was beautiful and I would definitly wear it again.

I rented a size 4 and it was tight around the hips and bust.(I usually wear a size 4 or size Small in other clothes). The length was just right. But I would recommend going a size up if you are considering this dress. It looks really cute and sexy for a night out.

Eh, just ok. It fits pretty snug in the hips, but I carry my weight in my hips, so maybe it is just me. However the waist was really baggy and the rouching at the stomach made me look like I had a pooch. The top was great and like other reviewers stated the arm looks much better and is more comfortable if you don't put it over your arm. Overall just ok...I'll definitely be ordering a backup dress in the future.

I really disliked this dress. Pay attention to the product details; it really is 42 inches long. It falls way down below your knees, to make it look like the picture you have to bunch it up yourself. Very unflattering.

I have worn a size 4 in these Nicole Miller Ruched dresses and the 6 fit perfectly. Order a size up and you will avoid the bunching of the ruching another renter complained of. It is a much better looking dress than the picture indicates. In terms of the shoulder piece, it is definately uncomfortable if shown as worn on RTR. For what it is worth, the Nicole Miller website shows it as being worn under the arm, which looks great and makes more sense from a comfort standpoint.

Liked this dress.. very 'edgy' on trend... unusual, figure hugging fit me perfectly (36x26x36) only negative is my shoulders are on the narrow side so the shoulder with the sleeve kept slipping down.. used the thoughtfully provided tape R the R the included... not crazy about the neckline bit awkward for me but may be better on a broader shoulder

Definitely got lots of compliments on this dress. I'm pretty short, so it came down to just above my knees, but it was perfect for the occasion. The only issues I had were: the ruching/bunching felt kind of awkward and made the dress a little difficult to put on; it wasn't as flattering around the waist as i thought it would be, but maybe that was just me; and I felt like i was tugging at the "sleeves" all night to stay on my shoulder, even though it was a snug fit. Overall, great dress and I wish I owned it :)

I received many "hot" comments the evening I wore this dress! It runs a tad small if you have any hips. The folds camouflage a belly beautifully! I wore the shoulder flap under my arm because when worn on the outside you can't raise your arm, looks great either way. Comfortable and sexy? It's yours with this dress.
