This dress was really comfortable. I got tons of compliments all night. I rented the necklace too.
This was such a classic and beautiful dress. The dress fits true to size and is very flattering. I got so many compliments not only that night but even days after the event people were still making comments. I would rent this again in a heartbeat.

Pretty but...
Unfortunately the size 4 I needed came back damaged from another customer, so I only received the size 2. While the fit was fine and true to size, the length was all wrong for me. It barely touched my ankles. I had to go another direction.

Perfect for curves!!
I absolutely love love love this dress. Fits like a glove. Hugs and forgives in all the right places. I have a true hour glass figure so finding a dress that doesn't need to be altered is difficult. It's a show stopper dress and I received tons of compliments. Rent this dress!!! You won't want to return it.

Lady in red
Beautiful dress... the perfect shade of red( a blue based red, not orange) . The length was perfect for my height of 5'3" + heels. The fit was just right , hugged it in all the right places. Showed all my curves without being trashy, yet totally sexy , in a classy way. I'd rent this again .

Very flattering
Hugs in all the right places. I have a very straight figure (my waist and hips don't differ much in size), but this actually gave me some curves. Great for a formal Christmas affair.

Love this dress! Felt so glamorous!
Wore this dress to the submarine ball and it was perfect for the event. It was just the right mix of sexy and sophisticated. The dress was true to size and fit perfectly with 3 inch heels (I am 5'5"). I was also able to wear a regular bra with this dress because it goes up high enough in the back. The material is stretchy. I would recommend this dress anyone, especially if you have an hourglass figure.

Perfect dress for a military ball
I really liked this dress. The color was vibrant and definitely allows you to stand out if that's what you're going for. It was form fitting and flattering. I wore a strapless bra with it, and that worked fine. I gave 4 stars because when i received the dress the back button/snap was broke, but i was able to make it work with a pin. Overall, I would definitely recommend this dress!

This dress was so flattering!! I got so many compliments on it at the event I wore it to.
The material has a fair amount of stretch to it but not too much that it is skintight. Also the ruching was super flattering for those with fuller hips & booty! The back had a pretty cutout at the top but still allowed me to wear a regular strapless bra. Altogether one of the best dresses I've worn in a long time!!

This was the perfect dress for our USMC Ball this year!
I was extremely worried about the fit before the dress arrived, as it was only available in one size, and many others said that the dress ran a little small. However the dress was true to size and fit perfectly. The fabric was lightweight and extremely comfortable. I'm usually a petite, and I ordered the regular size so that I could wear heels, however, the regular size was a little short in my opinion. I could only wear 2" heels without it looking awkward. Some said that they were able to wear a regular bra with the dress, but I couldn't find one that was hidden entirely, so I went with the sticky cups instead, but they worked great. Overall, the dress was a perfect fit, and I had a fantastic first experience with RTR. People came up to me to compliment the dress all night! I will definitely be renting again!

Beautiful Gown!I had issues with the dress I received due to stains, but RTR took care of the issue.
Very comfortable. Runs a little on the large size. It would have looked better if I had ordered a size down. I love Nicole Miller gowns and this one did not disappoint. I recommend a nude dress shoe and graduated diamond necklace. If you wanted to wear long white gloves ... this would be a great dress for the look.

You probably need a strapless bra with this and do not expect your boobs to be held high, which honestly was fine. It looked great.

I felt like Jessica Rabbit in this dress!
I wore this dress to a "James Bond" themed party. I had been carrying a few extra pounds on me, and the dress was a little unforgiving in the stomach area, but once I got the right pair of Spanx on, it looked great. The fabric was very lightweight and comfortable to wear on a humid summer night in Florida (that was the final deciding factor that made me choose this dress over my alternate). Got tons of compliments all night!

I cannot say more positive things about this dress. It was perfect. I ordered a 2R and 4R. The 2R fit but was a bit short with heels. The 4R fit but was longer in length with heels. I received so many compliments! This is a perfect, classy, sexy dress for a formal affair.

Beautiful dress in photos. If it got wet the droplets stained the dress. Also, the dress was very low cut and had to be pinned to bra. Other than that it was very comfortable.

The dress was amazing! It was exactly what I had in mind for a dress for this charity event.
I thought the dress was true to size. It is very form fitting so if you are not comfortable with it hugging all your curves then you may not like it. I loved the dress and got a lot of compliments on it! I felt fabulous in it!

The dress is fitted so I was nervous it would not forgive the "mom pouch" I can't seem to get rid of. But it was actually more forgiving/flattering than I anticipated. I would definitely recommend this dress for any formal event. The length as perfect for me. I'm 5'2"/5'3" and I wore 4 inch heels.

The perfect dress for a black tie wedding!
I did not want to give this dress back! I wore this dress to a black tie wedding in June. The red was a bit darker than expected, but I received so many compliments all night! I ended up wearing the larger of the two sizes, for my own comfort. The material is light so shapewear is a must if you want to hide anything. Strapless bra definitely. This dress made me feel like a movie star and I WILL find another occasion to wear it!

Great dress, beautiful red. Highly recommend.
Great dress for a formal affair. I rented the 4 and 6, the day before it shipped the 4 was damaged and not available. I think the 4 would have fit better, but I made the 6 work with double stick tape to stay up. Another recommendation I wore the Victoria's Secret dream angels multiway bra, you can arrange the straps to not show so I will still able to wear straps which is huge when I'm a 34D. Because I wore the 6 it was a little looser and I used double stick fabric tape along my bra to make sure the dress didn't move and I could dance the night away!

It was form fitting and flattering plus comfortable to wear. I'm usually between a size 4 and 6 and the size 4 fit my really well. I'm 5'5'' and with heels it was the perfect length.

Sexy, sexy, sexy!
Pros: This dress is sexy, especially if you're a curvy lady. It's true to size and very form fitting. I was able to wear a regular strapless bra (pulled the back down a tad) and NO spanx (despite the form fitting material/cut). I am 5'3 and this dress was actually too short for the shoes I planned to wear. It was perfect with 4" heels - anything higher would've looked funny. Cons: I love Rent The Runway but this dress may need to be retired soon. It looked worn, thankfully I wore this to a night wedding so it wasn't so obvious. Also, I had to steam it to get some wrinkles out (thankfully, I have a steamer at home). Overall, the dress is beautiful and I loved wearing it. As always my experience with RTR was perfect.

Great date, great band, and an unbelievably gorgeous dress made my sorority's formal unforgettable!
Seriously I have never felt sexier! The dress clung to every curve (as you can see in the pic), and the material was light so it wasn't too hot! The color was more of a blue red, so it really complimented my pale skin! You have to wear a strapless bra, and I would recommend spanks since it is tight! I'm 5'2 and the 2P was the perfect length! I wish I could wear this dress to every formal event!

Beautiful red dress, comfy, true to size
This was my first choice but I ended up loving my backup dress more, so I didn't wear this one. It is a beautiful red, stretchy, comfy. The ruching drapes nicely over the belly if that's a problem area for you. I got the 4R which fit perfectly. With 3 inch heels, it was about an inch off the floor. (I'm just under 5'4").

My friend and I both work RTR dresses! I felt absolutely beautiful and it made my night!
The material was very comfortable and I received many compliments. I wore a shaper because the material is thin and shows all details. I could see the bottom of the liner on my legs a little bit through the dress but I don't think anyone else would notice. I was able to wear a normal strapless bra. The dress fit great and I would rent it again in a heartbeat!

Great experience! Will do it again!
Was a little nervous to plan my evening around a dress that couldn't try on until the day before the event but had a great experience. All the reviews of this specific dress said fit was 'true to size' and they were right. I wear a 12 and the fit was spot on. Because the material has stretch, definitely needed underwear to smooth out the curves. I had also been worried about the length since I'm 5'2 but my 2-1/2" heels did the trick. Got so many compliments! Will use RTR again for sure...

Dress runs small & short!
I ordered this dress in a 12 which is my regular size. I am 5'8" tall so I tried for the L but it was not available so I ended up with a 12R. The dress was extremely tight on me around the middle as well as the under arm area. The dress was short as well. When I tried on the dress without heals I could see my ankles. I am so glad I ordered another backup style dress. It fit perfectly. I will say though that I like that they let you have options. I gave it two stars because although to small for me the dress is beautiful!

I didn't have the confidence (or the abs!) to pull this one off!
The dress fit beautifully. I ordered it in both an 8 and 10, and I could easily have worn either one. The length was a little short, but not so much that it would have kept me from wearing it. The real issue was the fabric. This is a form fitting gown, and the material is both stretchy and thin, so it shows every bump and imperfection. Thought it would be ok with spanx, but when I put the spanx on underneath, you could clearly see the waistband through the dress. If this had been made with a more substantial fabric it would have been perfect. The cut and color were stunning, the back beautifully dramatic. I was very sad that I couldn't wear it.

This dress fit beautifully. I wore a strapless bra and had to secure the front with double sided tape only because I knew I would be worrying about it showing. The dress was comfortable and the perfect length for normal heels.

Great dress to stand out
It's very form-fitting but looks great. I am 5'4", 112 pounds, pear shaped and wore a 4P. I could have worn the 2P but wanted the slightly looser fit. However, I actually regretted this because it made the top a bit too big and was slipping down a bit al night. BUT not a big deal, and got a ton of compliments.

Amazing fit! The pictures do this gown no justice ! It was absolutely beautiful! Subtle, classy, elegant! I got compliments all night long. My date was speechless when he saw me. RTR you out did yourselves. I had originally rented this gown for the same event the weekend of 21st but the event got cancelled because of done storm. I called RTR and explained what happened and requested a credit and asked if I could get the gown again for the following weekend and was accommodated. I was stoked! They went out of they're way to ensure my night was a success and it was. Thank you RTR I am forever a loyal customer!

I wore this dress for my husband's Military Ball and received so many compliments.
It was light, comfortable and super flattering. I wore the 8R but would have preferred the 6R but it was unavailable. Wore 3in heels and they worked perfectly. Would definitely wear again if I could!

Wore this to a military ball
I should have gone a size up because this dress is NOT forgiving. But the 6R and long were both unavailable for the date I needed. Every bump you have will show! I wore this braless with just nipple covers since it was form fitting enough to keep my boobs in place. Seamless underwear/thin lace works best if you're not gonna go commando. I don't own Spanx but there's no way I'd be able to hide them in this dress! loved this dress so much but I wish there had been a 4long. I wore flats and even then it hit an awkward spot on my feet. If you are over like 5'3" DO NOT get a regular lol. The best part was the back. Such great detailing yet also simple enough to not be obnoxious.
