This dress was the perfect look for a holiday wedding.
The dress does fit tight but it holds you in all the right places. The lace detail creates an elegant look.

Very firm fitting but forgiving
This was my first rtr experience. I was overall pleased with how everything came packaged and the ease of everything! I read many reviews on this dress, comparing it to others sizes (height/weight) and dress size. I was drawn to this because of the long sleeves and the black lace overlay. I thought it would be perfect for a winter wedding, which it was. I would rent this again but I'd get a different size. I am 5 ft and about 123 lbs. most of that weight is in my rear. I ordered the small and xs. The small slip fit but was a bit uncomfortable for me, I probably could've done a medium in the slip. I ended up wearing a plain black slip that I had of my own and the xs lace of the dress. It still looked great and I got many compliments. The lace is stretchy and forgiving, breathable. I could've down the xs or the small lace, but went with the xs because the small was big in the shoulders, longer in general, even in the arms. Also note, the nude slip looks great under the black lace but the straps of the slip are white, which is a bit odd. In all, it's a great dress for all body types I'd say. It hugged me in the right places, even over my booty. Sexy and classic. I did pin the plunging neckline because it was a bit too plunging for the event.

Fun night ahead? Perfect dress!
The slip underneath it is amazing! Getting the dress, for the slip alone, is worth it. It squeezes in and pushes up all the right places. It's a great dress for someone with curves.

Very elegant
Fit very well, but the outer layer was slightly big in the chest. No big deal, I just wore a padded bra. Was a wonderful and classy dress. The lace is beautiful. The sheath underneath was great except it rode up when I was dancing (but I was really dancing hard)!

Comfortable dress
Dress was really comfy and light weight. Although it was a little long for my liking. The slip was a little tight. Would recommend once size up for the slip.l because the side zipper bunched up

Wore this to a family wedding and received tons of compliments.
Loved the cut and fit. The lace on my arms was a little constricting at times but it was easy to dance in and comfortable all night. I'm medium-sized chested so I was worried if it wouldn't fit as well at the top but it did. I was so happy with the overall dress and it looked stunning! Would highly recommend this.

Got tons of compliments on the dress
The dress was slightly large up top. Had to pin the neckline down. A tad too plunging. Overall it was a great dress. It does ride up a bit but nothing that made it uncomfortable to wear. It was great to wear with no shawl for an outdoor wedding.

Elegant with an edge
This was my first time using rent the runway and I am so glad I did! I got so many compliments on this dress. The dress comes in 2 separate pieces with a nude slip and black lace top. I wore the small in the slip and the XS for the lace overlay because the small overlay was a bit too long. It was sexy and formfitting but comfortable at the same time. I would definitely rent this dress again and can't wait to RTR again!

Another amazing Nicole Miller!
I wore this to a formal event when I wasn't sure if I should wear a long or short dress. This ended up being a perfect compromise! I fit into the medium, but chose the large for extra comfort. These dresses are so stretchy, that it doesn't matter much anyways. Worked great with a regular bra and spanx underneath. Loved it!

Fit was pretty true to size. I liked the dress a lot. Only complaint was that it rode up a bit and I had to pull it down. Sleeves were great for a December wedding.

Fun dress for NYE.
Like others wore the Medium slip and Small overlay. Most reviews said tight in chest, but I found even the small was a bit big. Could have been the low neck cut of the dress.

Amazing neckline! Love the lace!
Loved this dress. Neckline is super flattering - it does gape a little but it wasn't bad enough that I needed tape. I would rent it again in a heartbeat. I was surprised that I wore the M but the L was pretty stretched out I think, so the M ended up looking better. It's definitely bod con...But the black lace is super flattering.

Too long proportionally and not tight enough
This dress is lovely, and I love the detailing and seaming within the lace. However, it rang long and large for me. I am slightly over 5'1", and the fact that it hit below my knee did not bother me...i did not like that the middle torso section of the dress hit too low on my torso and didn't flatter. It was also not right at all and looked baggy and unflattering. On someone taller or curvier I think it would be lovely!

I rented this dress for an office holiday party - it was a huge hit and I felt like a million bucks!
I usually wear a size 4, but have a smaller waist and larger hips.... This dress was forgiving bc it has a little bit of stretch. I wore the small slip (tight, but slimming!) with small dress. Needed a push up bra to fill in the top, it was a little tricky to get a bra with right plunge and fit under the slip due to the deep V neckline. I pared it with silver pumps and rhinestone chandelier earrings. Warm, comfortable dress - highly recommended!

This dress is stunning! I got so many compliments all night! I would recommend a larger slip size with the smaller lace cover since the slip runs very small.

This dress has two layers. The nude layer fits true to size, but the lace layer is HUGE! Still fit comfortably for the theater and birthday drinks.

Classy and stunning dress
I will be renting this dress again! I wore this to my work Christmas party. It hugged my curves perfectly and showed a little skin without revealing too much. I am a 34B/C so it may have been a little more revealing if I was larger chested. I have broad shoulders, but the lace dress fit perfectly. I wore the XS dress and slip. I received compliments throughout the night and even a few compliments days later.

Perfect fit
I wear a 4 to 6 in dresses and rented the small and XS. I wore the small. The nude slip for under the black lace dress was very tight but it's not uncomfortable at all. The entire dress was very form fitting and looked great.

The wedding was so fun and and not worrying about buying a dress was great!
I loved this dress and wish so much that I could buy it! I ordered the XS and the S and ended up wearing the XS. I am 5'7", typically an XS, and the lace dress fit exactly true to size. As the other reviews say though, I am glad I had the size S second option for a dress because the nude slip that goes under the dress (included with your dresses, but a separate piece of the dress to put on) is very tight and runs a bit small. This acts as a suction part for under the dress and worked very well! The dress was very comfortable, was a little longer than the photo shown which was great, came dry-cleaned, neatly packed into a cute bag, and organized well with an easy -to-follow format to send the dress back. I would definitely rent again and am telling all my friends!

Dress would look great on anyone
The cut was a little low but I pinned and taped so it was fine. I loves the way it fit. I'm pretty sure it would be a flattering look for most anyone.

Great dress for a holiday party! Received lots of compliments! The dress was very form fitting but the slip acts as a body shaper too. My only negative was got low cut the dress was (for me) so I was a bit self conscious. Overall loved the dress!

I've eyed this dress multiple times and my husband's work party was finally the one for it-perfect!
I loved loved loved this dress! The arms weren't too tight nor did the dress shimmy up while walking etc. It was a perfect fit for me at a Medium. The only issue was the cleavage as it was definitely on for a show but not ridiculous. I'd say tape it if you're worried about it at all or wear a black slip underneath. I would rent this again in a heartbeat; I received many compliments and felt amazing all night.

Great dress for a winter event. I ended up wearing it to dinner after I became engaged. I thought it would be a good dress for dinner on a trip--- boy, it was! Warm and could be worn with tights and booties in even colder weather). Very cute and comfortable.

I ended up wearing the medium slip with the small dress on top. I really like how the slip and dress were not attached so it gave the option. Also, I got MANY compliments when wearing this dress. It is lower cut than anticipated, so if you're trying to be a little more conservative you may want to pass on this dress. The under slip was a great replacement for shape wear. Overall, this is a great dress and really amplifies any curves!

So many compliments and perfect for an outdoor event!
I wore this to a work holiday party that was partially outdoors. It kept me perfectly comfortable with 60 degree weather (granted there were heat lamps). I loved the fit throughout, very slimming, very well made, perfect length for me (5'1") and ideal blend of sophistication and allure without drab. Would rent again, got so many compliments. Next time I may wear the size small slip with the xs dress because the top of the slip kept sliding down. I was wearing a nude bra so you couldn't tell but the cups were a little small.

Wore this to a corporate holiday party.
As mentioned in other reviews, I wore the larger sized slip (medium) and the small sized dress. After putting it on and looking at photos from past reviews, I recommend this dress to taller women with a larger chest size. I'm 5'2" 34B and even though I still wore the dress and felt OK in it - it did not rock my world. The dress also hit right up to my knees. I think on a taller woman, it would look more flattering. Hope this helps!

Comfortable and a hit!
Wore this dress to my boyfriend's company party and I wasn't disappointed. For a December, corporate holiday party I wanted to be covered up, warm, comfortable but still a knock out and that is exactly what this dress did for me. There was a bit of drama with the delivery of the dress - I received an email a couple days before that I wouldn't get the large due to a previous renter, so I had to rent a couple other options as well, but the Customer Service rep for RTR was amazingly helpful and friendly! I was bummed that I wouldn't be able to wear the dress I had initially picked so you can imagine my surprise when the medium fit really well (it was a bit tight so it did ride up my legs a bit and I had to keep pulling it down) and I didn't have to resort to the backup dresses! I looked great, felt great and received tons of compliments. A+ for this one!
