I loved the color and the slenderizing fit.
The dress runs a little small. You'll need zipper help. But, I loved the fit and color so much I bought the dress!

I had read reviews that the dress ran small. I am normally a 0 or 2 so I ordered a 2 and 4.
Tight in the chest and bigger in the waist. A pretty dress. A like that it wasn't a typical black dress. My boyfriend loved it.

Didn't wear it
When I pulled it out of the box it looked like doll clothes. It runs SO small. It does stretch, but I couldn't zip it up. I am usually between a 4 and a 6. I think I would have needed at least an 8 in this dress, possibly a 10.

Fun dress for NYE. Runs very small!
Wore this dress for NYE. It runs EXTREMELY small. I would order 1-2 sizes larger than you would normally wear.. so glad I ordered an extra size up. The dress is very small in the chest area. Great for smaller busts to give a good boost. Once I got the dress zipped up and went out, I found it to be more comfortable than you'd imagine. All in all, if you order the right size, it's a fun dress!

Didn't wear it
I ordered a size 10. It was too tight in the waist and chest so it wasn't flattering. I thought the ruching in the dress would make a difference...it only made me look bigger than I am. It is more of a rusty color than a plum shade so it will look better on a person that has a tan or color. Maybe if I get back down to a size 6 or 8, I'll try it again.

Didn't wear- horrible fit and not flattering at all.
Rented for my bachelorette party in Vegas. Made the mistake of not trying on until I was getting ready to go out in it. Super tight in the chest- only good for tiny busts. And really awkwardly long for a dress that's supposed to be sexy. Was looser throughout the waist and hips also which just made it look all wrong. Super sad because I didnt have a good backup for going out in!

darker color in person
The dress itself is BEAUTIFUL, unfortunately it runs very very small and I was not able to wear it. I am usually a size 4, 6 at the most. I couldn't even halfway zip up the 6. I would have loved to have worn it if I would have had the right size. I would suggest sizing up if you rent.

This dress made me look hotttttt!
My cleavage was perfect in this dress. I loved the fit and everything about it. It was short (which I was looking for), and it was different -- I stood out. I would HIGHLY recommend to everyone. I wore it with pasties so I didn't wear a bra with it.

Great form fitting dress! Lots of compliments, one of a kind in a room full of LBDs
Borders that line of "Runs Small" if you have even the slightest of curves. I have the ribs hips and butt of a six and the waist and chest of a size four. So if you have curves, or long legs, go a size up to keep from being pinched in all night. Overall one of the best fits I have had from RTR

I feel fabulous.
The trick to wear this dress is to zip up the dress first and then pull it down from over your head. I could not zip it up all the way. At first I thought the dress was too tight. However, I decided to zip the dress first and pull it through from over my head. This dress would probably look best for the pear-shaped body type. My butt is small, so although the top was really tight, the dress is loose at the waist line and the butt. So it was not truly body hugging. Still looks pretty good. I liked it.

Just o.k.
I wanted to love it just as much as everyone else. It was just o.k. I ALWAYS wear a 0 but needed a 2 in this dress. Even in the past when they say dresses run small, I have never needed to size up. I thought it fit kind of strange in the chest. I did receive a lot of compliments on it. I just didn't love it.

It was a great color and fit for the NYE party! I received tons of compliments!
The dress runs REALLY small. I wear a 4, but had to squeeze into the 8. The dress is comfortable, and the color is slightly more burgundy than brown, but the shimmer makes it great for a party (I wore this to a New Year's Eve event). I definitely recommend renting this dress, but go up a size or two to be safe!

As an "athletic" body type the dress perfectly accentuated the (little) curves I do have. Showed off my legs but wasn't too short, and allowed for a tasteful amount of cleavage

My husband saying, when I first tried it on, that he couldn't wait to get me out of it!
I'm 5'3" and 135 lbs, 36 DD bra and I'm heavy in the tummy area. 39 years old. This dress does run small. I usually wear size 8 or 10 and this 10 fit me as if I were trying on a size 6, but the 12 was perfect. I was wearing spanx for my tummy. This dress made me feel like a million bucks! My cleavage looked great with no bra. Others have noted the ruching is "elastic" and I experienced this as well, but after it settles in place naturally it was a good length, not too short. The size 10 was very worn in a few places so I'm glad it didn't fit (so I didn't have to wear it) but the 12 was in great condition. Process of delivery and return was very easy. Will use RTR again.

Gorgeous, flattering, comfortable! I got tons of compliments and wanted to keep it forever.
I am pretty wide so I typically wear an 8, but I decided to play it safe and go up two sizes because this was my backup dress and I only had it in one size. I was very lucky I did that because the 12 fit me perfectly and there's no way my normal size would have fit. However, numbers aside, I LOVED this dress! It fit like a glove and I got a ton of compliments all night - I wish I owned it. There was a little bit of visible wear but it was largely on the back of the dress and the venue was pretty dark so it wasn't an issue. Overall this dress was great but I would definitely go up a size especially if you're larger in the chest area.

Sexy designer dress
Definitely runs small. I had to wear a 4 (my normal size) because a size 6 was unavailable as a second choice. I literally had to fight my way into the dress, but once I got it on, it looked fabulous and I felt comfortable in it. Numerous compliments and it made my booty look bigger too ;-)

I felt all dressed up and the quality showed....
I ended up getting this dress instead of what I had previously ordered (I ordered right has hurricane sandy hit - but RTR was very gracious and got me this dress on time) I love Nicole Miller designs anyways so I was happy to have it. The dress is VERY tight in the chest area I have a small bust 34A and felt if I was any bigger I would have been poppin out. It's very forgiving in the stomach area however I was super tight up top but had tons of extra fabric in the stomach area it could have been my height though.

Pretty dress....but time to retire!
2 years ago, I rented the same dress in champagne, and got the most compliments I've received in my life. My boyfriend likes purple, so I figured, why not! Well, first, it is still a nice dress, but it's time to take it out of the rotation. First, both sizes (0 and 2) were very worn, particularly around the seams and the zippers. Like, threadbare. Second, the boob pads (built in bra?) are shrunken and bunchy, as are the straps, which makes the top a little uncomfortable. Third, the color is not that purple, it's more maroon, which probably looks nicer on darker skin tones. As for sizing: the 0 was incredibly tight around the chest area- which was surprising for Nicole Miller. The bottom fit great though. The 2, the chest was almost as small, but the bottom was too big. I went with the 2 just because of the ruching- I figured I could make it work. Long story short: either get more of these dresses, or take them out of the rotation. Their popularity might be their downfall!!!

Definitely runs a little small, but loved the overall fit and the option to either show some decolletage or not! Great for a friend's wedding or cocktail party, but wouldn't be appropriate for a work event.

Great dress, awesome fit
I am a huge fan of Nicole Miller in general because her dresses always seem to be the most flattering and comfortable to wear - this dress was no exception. It DOES run a bit small, however, so I would order a size up for backup because I am very petite and almost always wear a zero but I could barely zipper this zero so I ended up going with a 2 which fit perfect. I absolutely loved it and I have no complaints.

Golden Globes
In a lot of the Nicole Miller's I've grown I find they run large, however this one ran small. I often wear a 4 and in Miller's a size down from my usual 4. However after reading reviews and seeing what people were saying I rented the 4 & the 6 and the 6 was TIGHT!!! I had to have my friend really help me climb into it, I feel an 8 would have been much more appropriate for me. But I WOULD rent it again because it was gorgeous like so many of her dresses are.

Great Dress for a Formal Affair!
This was actually my back-up dress, and luckily I had read the reviews and saw that it ran a little small. I'm usually a size 0 or 2, but the 4 fit JUST right. The ruching on the dress hid any imperfections after a long night of eating and drinking, and I got SO many compliments on it. It's a very sexy dress; be ready for some intense cleavage! Overall, it was a great dress that made for a great night.

Great Vegas Dress, small in the bust
I wasn't sure I would love it when it came off the hangar, the ruching makes it look wrinkled, and the metallic sheen isn't at its full glory until its in a party setting. But I did love it, it made me feel sexy and I got alot of compliments, my husband adored it. I read the reviews about it running small, and I agree. I wore the 6, which is my regular size, but a 6 wouldn't usually be so short, tight, and busty, so it does run small. If I was borderline between sizes I would definitely size up. For me, the 8 was too loose so it made the ruching bunch. I'm a 32C, and both the 6 and the 8 were small for me in the bust. Neither would zip with a bra on, so I had to go braless (which was fine because it has a little lining). But I was busting out of the dress part, luckily the ruching that goes across the bust is adjustable to allow you some control over how much cleavage you bare. Overall I really loved wearing it. I rarely have a use for a sexy Vegas party dress so it was awesome to rent and return and not have to spend $$ on something I may never wear again. Loved the peace of mind that a 2nd size and back up style offered. This was my first RTR experience. It been 2 days since I returned and I just placed my 2nd order for Valentine's day. Keep it up RTR, and I may never have to go to the mall again.

What a treat to wear Nicole Miller!
Sorry for the poor quality of the photos -- the second one shows the color much better. The color was a glorious tone, almost bronze/brown in darker light, and a lovely sparkly (but not garish) plumb in the light. I was debating between a number of dresses for a special event, and when my boyfriend saw the page of my "loved" items he immediately pointed to this one unprovoked and said, "you have to wear that one." I tend to agree with other reviews: definitely size up, watch out if you're above a C cup, and have a friend help you with the zipper / buttons! I usually wear a 4 or 6, and the 8 was perfect. I ended up deciding to go with a strapless bra even though there was some support in the dress because the fit looked a little awkward without it. I think I would have been ok without the fashion tape, but it definitely helped me feel secure because I was showing a LOT more cleavage than I normally do. The length felt long enough to balance out the plunging neck, but still short enough to be sexy. It did ride up a little bit when I danced, but not too much -- the danger zone was more in sitting down, actually. The fit was stretchy enough to be comfortable and to allow some fun swing dancing, but also fairly flattering. I got a LOT of compliments and really hated to send the dress back.

Felt great in this extremely comfortable dress and is was a great alternative to wearing a LBD
I wore the dress to a wedding and it looked great and was very comfortable. It looks small on the hanger but has a lot of stretch. I ordered the size 2 and 4 but ended up going with the 4 because just like the other women mentioned, the dress is difficult to zip up and I needed help. But once it was zipped, it didn't even feel tight and I didn't need to wear a bra because it provided so much support. The color is prettier in person and the length was perfect. Since I'm only 5'2", I was concerned it would be a little long but it was perfect.
