I didn't love the dress--it was too tight on me, and I thought the fabric felt and looked cheap.

Such an amazing dress on! I wore it on my 21 birthday and was really happy with it. It was really comfortable to dance in and I didn't wear a bra.

This dress was too large on top. I have an average bust and never usually have a problem filling out a dress on top. Otherwise it seemed like a great dress and fit true to size everywhere else.

Unfortunately, I didn't love this dress. I am tall and kind of felt like it was a little on the shorter side. I did get lots of compliments on it but didn't feel all that comfortable in it.

My black dress stood out!
I loved this dress! I got a size six-I was worried it was going to be too small because I know Nicole Miller runs a little small, but it fit great! I got tons of compliments on the dress at the event I was at and I received wonderful customer service from RTR. The dress material was a little thinner than I expected, but it looked great so that didn't really matter.

Ok, this dress is really nice. Not too short, but it didn't fit on the top. I have large C cup and this dress was too big around my chest. So I didn't feel comfortable because I had to pull it up all the time. Next time I will get two sizes like I did the first time I rented dress for RTR :) Overall sexy dress.

I also rented this dress for my 21st. It is a beautiful dress but I found it to be a little large in the bust. I'm normally a size 4 and needed a size 2. Also since I am petite it was a bit longer on me then I thought it would be. All and all I was very pleased with the dress, even with the few minor problems.

The renting process exceeded my expectations entire;y! I wore this dress to a club for my birthday and to a induction for my honors society (covered up of course). I felt great in it since it was super comfortable. The material is thinner than i would have expected and it does feel a little cheap up close. However, it still looked great and was quite true to the photo.

Loved this dress. The fit is amazing and very flattering, and the length is perfect - short but not too short. All in all, for the night out (I wore it to a friend's bday at a restaurant/club) it was a big hit, showed cleavage and was form-fitting and sexy. However, the only reason I wouldn't buy it is the fabric. It does look a little cheap and pleather-y. It's thinner than it looks (and thinner than the typical Nicole Miller ruched fabric) and shiny. But for a one night rental, it was perfect!

I did not like this dress. The material was cheap and flimsy and didn't fit well in the waist. If you have a great "rack" this dress will help you flaunt it - but if you are not as well endowed - I would not recommend. I am 5'1" - 107lbs A Cup.

Cute & sexy!
This is my first time renting from rtr and I loved the process. I wore this to a black tie gala and it was perfect. I got SO many compliments from my date and from all my friends. I rented a size 4 and a size 6 and was a little surprised the 6 was so big. I have a small waist and can often wear size 4 in dresses but my work slacks often have to be size 6 or 8 and my bust is 34C - D. I think I probably should have rented a size 2 or 4 because the 4 was perfect but maybe could have been a TINY smaller in the waist and bust. I was expecting from the reviews I read before I rented the dress for the material to be thin. That was not the case at all in my opinion. I didn't have to wear spanks and the fabric / rouching was VERY forgiving. The length was also great - not too short or long (I am 5'7 and have athletic / muscular legs - not stick legs - so I have to be careful about looking TOO sexy at times in short dresses and tall heels). Not the case with this dress. Highly recommend - I want to buy this dress and wear it for new years!!!

Gorgeous dress! I am usually a size 0 and Nicole Miller typically fits me very well (sometimes 0's are a bit tight). This one was much too large in the waist and hip area. Had to send it back :(

I wish I could keep the dress! It fit perfectly. The back zipper was sturdy and smooth to use. And the strapless corsetted upper body of the dress was supportive and I danced all over the place without a worry.

Loved this dress! I didn't mind the sheen in the fabric - I thought it photographed very nicely and really amplified my curves. My only nit is that the bust is a little small for the larger-busted ladies. I'm a 34D and they were very much on display! I would definitely recommend this if you're trying to go very sexy! Loved it.

This dress is absolutely gorgeous! It fit perfectly in all areas except my bust (nothing the proper bra can't fix). I received nothing but compliments on it all night. I chose to pair the dress with a short chunky chain necklace overlapped with a second necklace with big black bows; it added an edgy but classy touch! I would highly recommend this dress for any occasion.

I loved the dress, but I have a larger than normal butt, and I don't have much of a chest. Normally in pants I wear size 4, and so I got a size 4 dress. It was WAY too big for the top. I ended up wearing the 2 which was REALLY tight on the bottom, but luckily the material has a lot of give so it stretched out, but I had to wear that size so that my boobs weren't showing ;)--in the end it worked out, but it's a dress made for someone with a more streamline body type than me (whatever that means)--Just someone with substantial boobage and a normal sized butt. I got SOOOO many complements on the dress though! It was amazing!

This dress is very sexy and hugs your curves. Bigger chested women might consider sizing up. I am usually a 4 and had to wear a 6 in this dress. However, the stretchy fabric keeps the rest of the dress form-fitting while allowing more room up top. I wore this with Dannijo's Finley Earrings for New Year's Eve and got lots of compliments!

This dress was spectacular! I got so many compliments. The zero was the perfect size and flattered my body type. I am 5'7 and 120 lbs with hourglass figure. Bust is 34C waist 26". I felt like Jessica Rabbit :)Super sexy! The material is wonderful. No bra needed.

I LOVED this dress! This was my first rental and what a great experience it was! I will definitely be renting again in the future. The dress was pretty much true to size, although I do agree with some of the reviewers that the bust seemed a little big, almost stretched out, and I am a 34 C. It was not a big deal though and still looked great! It's definitely a sexy dress, which was perfect for the NYE party I wore it to. I got so many compliments on it!

I ordered this dress for a romantic trip away with my boyfriend. He LOVED it!!! I normally wear a two and read that it ran big so I ordered the zero and a two. I had on the two in the hotel room and after wearing it for a few minutes while doing my make-up I realized it was baggy around the stomach which was not a good look. I switched it out for the zero which was tight but I think it must be meant to fit that way bc it looked MUCH better. The downside is it was long...I am 5'3" and it came to the tops of my knees and if you are petite you usually want something a little shorter. It looked fine with heels but I would have preferred a few inches above the knee. I would not order this if you are under 5'3". The top must run a bit big because I'm a 32 C/D and the zero fit me!

I have to agree because I'm normally a 6 but the 4 fit perfectly and the 2 fit better....and yes, I think someone is scrolling through my facebook pictures right now regretting it :-)

This dress was absolutely amazing! Extremely easy to wear and has a beautiful lining and boning in the chest that gives you a great shape... I didn't have to spend all night pulling the top up. I thought the fabric was beautiful; I jazzed it up with red satin heels and some black drop earrings for Valentine's Day.

Beautiful dress, fit was wrong for me.
Although I think the dress itself is beautiful (didn't think fabric looked cheap or too shiny) I definitely had problems with the fit. I have a smaller bust and a very small rib cage, and wider hips so I usually wear a 0 in any dress with stretch or that is wider in the hip. I got the 0 and the 2 in this dress and both were big on me. I ended up having to stuff a bra as well as pin in an elastic band to help keep it up. It also seemed as though from other people wearing it the rear was stretched out and it didn't lay flat on my body. The rental experience was very easy, just disappointed in the fit.

Everyone wanted to know where did I get my dress from!!
I love this dress. I wore this for my birthday. I am very small so its hard for something to fit extra tight. The only thing that is big on me is my chest I am a 32D but i wear a size 0 in pants and I have narrow hips. So the 0 fit me good. But i would love for it to be tighter. It is still a good deal. I got alot of compmliments on it. People were so shock that you can rent such a great dress.

This was my 2nd time renting this dress. I loved it so much i decided to wear it again; this time for my bday. I have to say the dress looked so different the 2nd time around! The inside of the dress was really worn out looking, I know that I'm renting a dress that has been worn by other girls but seriously RTR, the one that i got was on it's last legs. The dress was begging to be retired. The boning on the dress was not sturdy and bent out of shape, the rubber lining by the chest area was yellow and looked dirty. Im going to think twice about ordering from RTR again.

I rented this dress a size down because previous reviews said it ran large. The smaller size did fit but I would have much rather had my normal size so I think it is more "true to size." I definitely thought this was a fabulous party dress. I like the fabric, contrary to other reviewers. My only issue was that my chest felt a little over exposed. I have a D-cup and felt like all eyes were on those all night. So I would avoid if you have a larger chest- unless you are going for super sexy- then it would be perfect! Otherwise, loved the dress and thought it was super sexy and flattering on my Kardashian figure.

Was let down when I saw this dress in person. I have D-boobs and the dress was not flattering on them and dress was not nearly as fitted as one would expect. I didn't end up wearing it b/c I would have been yanking the top up constantly so perhaps best for smaller-chested women?

I got a 4 and a 6... I probably needed a 2. I have a 34C bust, and my boobs would not fit in the top, the top was sliding down, so I had to adjust it all night. I have a 26/27 waist, and the 4 was VERY baggy in the waist... did not fit as tightly as the models. The bottom part of the dress was fine. Even though I am definitely a 4 or a 6... definitely needed the 2, but then the top probably would have been too small.

First of all, the Product Details lists this dress as being "Black metallic silk." Is this some kind of metaphor? The dress's label says "SELF: 83% VISCOSE, 10% NYLON, 7% ELASTANE. LINING: 100% POLYESTER" At least I didn't see this until after I wore it, but I had problems with the fit anyway. It is a pretty dress if you have a very small chest. I am usually a 6, sometimes a 4. I got a 6 to be safe, and the chest was way too small while the dress was too big. I have the problem a lot with tops like this not being roomy enough for my chest (34DD), but most of the time in a dress like this, my chest just fills out a bit lower in the bodice than it's meant to. This happened with this dress, but it actually made my boobs look smaller because of where the more silvery fabric cuts in from the side, as well as how the ruching is draped across the bust. This actually wouldn't be a big deal, if the dress actually stayed up, but I didn't! I kind of felt like I was swimming in it when I was sitting. Although not silk, it is a cute dress, and I would recommend it, but not for a full bust. The ruching on the lower half is a bit more 'puffy' than it looks in the photo -- the photo makes it look like the ruching lays more flat, like in pleats, and that the fabric is pretty thick, but it's thin. Unfortunately this was my first time renting from RTR and neither dress fit well (I got another style as the 2nd one), so I'm a bit hesitant to rent again. I feel like I have no idea what I'm getting, maybe it would help to know this model's measurements?
