it made me look sexy, yet elegant. My husband said it looked like the dress was made for me.

Not many cons except it was just a bit longer in the back than I expected and there was some deodorant marks on the dress. Pros everything about the dress was perfect from cleavage to the back side.

LOVED IT.
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The fit was terrific! Body skimming, but not tight and soft and stretchy all over. The front follows your shape and the racerback detail hangs away from your waist so your figure is not obscured. I had ordered the 10 as a backup but didn't even try it on. Wore it with a slip-style shaper up to the waist and the backless/strapless bra, as recommended. It was reviewed as being on the short side, and it was--but I was able to wear embellished black flat sandals, which just added to the comfortable fit. The neckline is simple, but not boring-it complements the edgy back details rather than competing. It hangs pretty low in the front, so I wore a statement necklace with a low-hanging crystal. I did use the complimentary fashion tape to fasten the neckline to the bra for insurance. It was absolutely unique at a gala with some 2200 people in attendance. I felt glamorous and edgy at the same time. The second photo is of my 3 co workers-who all wore RTR gowns. As you can see-four big smiles!

STUNNING!
Size worn: 0L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I love this dress. I want to own it. Every single person I met told me how stunning I looked in this. It fit me perfectly. If you have some curves, this dress will show them off in the best possible way! I ended up with the 0L following the advice of other reviews that it runs slightly large on top. The dress has some support in the middle to hold everything in and the back... the back is truly spectacular. I HIGHLY recommend this is you want to turn heads!!

Great first RTR experience! The compliments were pretty constant, I couldn't pick a favorite!

Wore this dress to a black tie wedding and absolutely loved it. I'm 5'10" and needed the Long - I wore flats, it probably would have been too short for heels. I'm between an 8 and a 10 and the 8 was perfect.

I got a ton of compliments on this dress. I oozed elegance that night!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am a size 4 and this dress fit like it was made for me. It hung beautifully everywhere, I did need a little fashion tape, I'm only a B-cup but the girls were trying to escape as it was a scoop neck. I wore 4 inch heels I ordered the regular size and it just hit the floor perfectly, there is a slight train which a few people stepped on throughout the night but all in all I was completely satisfied with this dress. I loved it and I would rent it again. One thing though, I originally wanted to wear a slimmer under the dress but the material the dress is made of is very thin so you could see any lines from underwear or slimmers right through, I would recommend undergarments with no seams to wear under this dress.

I couldn't be happier with my RTR experience. This Nicole Miller gown hung beautifully. The black leather detail on the back adds just the right amount of edge and really shows off your back. The draping in the front and back really accented my lady parts in the most tasteful way. Thanks!

The elegance and uniqueness of the dress!
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
LOVED this dress! I received several compliments! Very sexy and stylish. I wished I had ordered the 0L in addition to the 2L because it runs a little large. Definitely would recommend ordering the long because it just barely touched the ground.

Beautiful gown, fit like it was made for me. So happy. The only thing I regret was not taking a picture of myself showing the side or back of the dress. The back is the WOW effect. I wore the 8 regular being that the long seemed to drag on the floor behind me. The regular was perfect even with heels & I'm almost 5'9 . Glad I didn't get the long

This was actually my back-up dress, but I absolutely LOVED it. Only issue was the length; I'm only 5'3" but it still barely touched the floor. I chose to wear my first choice dress largely because it covered my pumps. I'll definitely be considering this for another formal event!

The back view is the eye-catcher! Terrific for showing off toned arms and back!
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ended up needed the next smaller size, as I have lost a few pounds recently. Nevertheless, my husband still said it looked terrific on me. Need great jewelry to jazz up the front view, but the design of the back speaks for itself. I ended up wearing Spanx just to have a really clean look, as the dress will show seams. One caveat - the back drops lower than a normal bra by 2-3 inches, so know you are going to need a special bra. I didn't feel like a standout since it was basic black at a spring occasion, but people definitely noticed the back once they were up close and complimented me on the dress.

Would have loved to wear it but it was too short!
Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am 5'11" tall and 140lbs, The dress is quite lovely and fit very well (I went with the 6L). However even with my bare feet the dress was at least to mid calf, and did not look anything close to the length on the model. I would not recommend this dress for taller girls even if you get the Long length - it was very short & i would not have been able to wear heels - ended up wearing a different dress all together. However, the top fits beautifully and the dress is well made, so would recommend in all other aspects!

Chose this dress for a formal black tie event. The fit, material, and details really made it stand out. My boyfriend loved the back of the dress. Caution for you fuller busted women the front drape can get a little low so keep an eye on the "girls".

It was just the right amount of GLAM mixed with a dash of ROCK-N-ROLL!
Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a recent wedding and received compliments all night. The front is quite simple, very plain except for a little draping at the bust. However, you're not purchasing/renting this dress because you want to make a grand entrance. With this dress, you're looking to make a grand exit. The back is stunning and I absolutely love how it provides the dress with lots of movement. It was tasteful and simple yet sexy and edgy. Loved it. The size was perfect too, with 4 inch heels of course! Would definitely recommend.

Overall fit: True to Size

Ordered this in 2L and 4L. The 2 was ever so slightly snug, but the. 4 was super comfortable. With my 4" heals this dress was barely long enough. Wore this to a black tie wedding and received so many compliments. For a simple black dress this sure stands out.

Gorgeous but could not wear
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Caveat - I'm small (4) with a large chest - 30 DDD. On me, the draped neckline stuck straight out forward like a shelf instead of draping the way it needs to. Sadly this made it unwearable, it just looked too odd and would not flatten down. Stunning dress though, but didn't work for my shape.

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress fit suprisingly well. I have a larger bust and the drop was a little revealing in the front. Also, it wasn't as long as I expected. I am 5'8 and luckily the only heels I had available were like 1 or 2 inches. Close call... But overall I enjoyed the gown! It was fitting but not too tight at all.

I wore this dress to a formal ball last weekend and absolutely loved it! I am 5'6" and slender and went with the 0L and it fit like a glove. I wore 4" heels and the lenght was perfect. I agree with the comment below, the fabric is very thin and you have to wear undergarmets that are seamless. Overall the dress was very flattering and hugged my curves in all the right places.
