Hides flaws, great color
This was my "add a second look" dress I ended up not wearing it to the event. The size I normally wear (10) was great in the waist and hips but I also tried the 12 and had the same issue I had with the 10. I found it really tight around my shoulders/arms. It was rubbing and I felt restricted in my arm movement. The fabric and color make this a beautiful dress, however I just couldn't get past the discomfort in the shoulders.

My dress looked great and was super comfortable
This dress was actually my back up dress and I loved it so much more than my original first choice. This dress stretches and hides the areas you want to hide.

I wore this dress for my birthday party and received a ton of compliments!
This dress had a very flattering fit and was very stretchy which made it comfortable to dance the night away in! I have a little extra in my mid section which I am very self conscious about but this dress hit it well!

Ringing in the new year with style
Great dress. Very comfortable but it doesn't really stretch. Fits true to size. I wear a size 2 and it fit like a glove. The material for the dress is thicker than what imagined but still very comfortable.

Fit like a glove, great for my curves!
It really made my waist look excellent with the rouching. At the same time really looked great on my curves. The neck line wasn't too low allowing someone with a larger bust to fit well.

Meh
I wasn't overly impressed with the way this dress looked on me, but it's probably because I'm so faire skinned. My fault for not picking a more flattering color. I wore a size up from usual, and it fit very well though.

So many compliments!
I rented this for a fundraiser event and everyone commented on it. When I told my girlfriends it came from RTR they all said I needed to buy it because it was the perfect dress. I'm have an olive complexion, and this color was perfect. It was also so unbelievably comfortable.

Perfect for my first wedding as a planner!
I became a certified wedding planner and my first wedding was for my cousin. I wore this that day and it was both very professional and very flattering. I got compliments by everyone! Very forgiving fabric, the ruching(sp?) was flattering and it was so comfortable!

Comfort.
Both sizes came with odd stains. I wore the dress anyway because with the scrunchy fabric, they weren't noticeable. Dress was very comfortable though.

This dress has a gorgeous color and perfect fit.
I wore this to a charity fundraiser. Easy to wear, easy to dance in. I rented a 6 and an 8, wore the 6. It's a little odd to get on since the zipper is on the side. I just put it on over my head and that worked. I went bra-less, which I don't normally do but it worked for this dress. This was my 2nd rental from RTR and loved it. I will def rent this dress again!!

Rented this dress to wear to a wedding in Santa Barbara, it was a huge hit and I felt gorgeous. It is stretchy, so it gives in all the right places without making you look like you have a big pooch....I highly recommend it!I wore it with metallic sandals, a clutch and a wrap.

Love this dress! I wore it to a family friends wedding and received so many compliments. As other reviewers mentioned it fits really well and enhances/hides in all the right places. While the dress is true to size, I actually ended up wearing the larger of the two sizes ordered because it was a little longer which made it seem more formal.

Great dress! Very classy and no special bra requirements other than strapless. However, you may not want to rent this if you're 5'2" and under - it's pretty long and will definitely hit below the knee on you.

I'm on the small side of the top, so I felt a little flat chested on the top and I felt like it really showed off my hips. I was a little self-conscious at first, but my boyfriend though I looked hot. I wish they had a body type section for small chested, so I would have a better idea what would look great.

This dress is perfect!!! And it fits like a glove. If you are thinking of renting this dress, it does run true to size, but be honest with yourself about your size. I vary between and 8 to a 12 depending on the style. I was honest with my self and went for the 10 and it couldnt have been more perfect! I got complimented all night! One slight draw back is it does tend to ride up a little bit after some time. I spent 6 hours in this dress so it's to be expected when it fits so close your curves. It also doesnt have as much sheen as what the picture shows, but it is still beautiful! It was perfect for my New Year's Eve and I'm sure it will be perfect for whatever you need it for.

I love this dress! The fit was fantastic. It easily stretches to hug your curves, so it looks like it was tailored to fit you perfectly. So comfortable, too! I wore it to my husband's company holiday party and had a blast dancing and mingling. My only note is that it has a gold tone to it, not silver as I thought from the photos. Overall, I would highly recommend!!

This dress is absolutely stunning. It is actually a little more gold than the picture shows. I have no chest, but this dress fit my body so well I couldn't have been happier. The only problem I had was that the underarm part of the dress wasn't long enough, so it rubbed my armpits all night to where they were red the next day, but I felt so fabulous in it that I didn't care! My shoes hurt way worse than that :)Love, love, loved it!

I rented this dress for my engagement party. It was beautiful, and I was very pleased with it, received compliments all night! The body of the dress went up a little higher than ideal (short straps), as mentioned in other reviews, so it was uncomfortable from time to time in my underarm area. I guess this dress would be ideal for short torsos, even though I don't have a long torso. I felt like it was a bit slimming on the hips. And it is very stretchy, so it'll fit most people if they are around the correct size. I asked for a 4 and a 6 (i'm around 140lbs), and the 6 fit better. In most brands I tend to wear a 4.

I loved this dress. It did wonders for my ass-ests. I'm not a tall individual, but with heels, the just-above-the-knee cut was ideal. Many compliments. My friend rented the same dress in navy for New Years Eve, she's 5'8'' and 130 lbs and it fit her perfectly as well. Sisterhood of the traveling dress!

Very smooth experience!!
This dress was a knockout. First of all it fit like a glove in all the right places. I am a curvy young lady(hips and thighs) I felt fabulous, I looked fabulous and everyone around could not stop telling me how much they loved the dress. The worst part about the dress/rental was returning it:( but oh well I can always rent it again, or any of the other fabulous dresses on the site....Thanx Rent the Runway for make me feel like a star:)

I wore this dress for my engagement party and am still getting compliments on it! When I first pulled it out of the garment bag, I thought oh know, this looks too small, and since they didn't offer two sizes, I had a mini-panic attack. What a relief when I saw how much it stretches. It stretches in a way that sucks you all in too which is great! I highly recommend this dress. BTW, it felt so nice to say "who" my dress was instead of where I bought it.

Awesome dress! I rented this dress to change into for my wedding reception. Everyone LOVED it! It was a mini version of my wedding dress, also by Nicole Miller. You can easily wear a strapless bra with it. It gave in all the right places and was very, very comfortable. I'm very pale, but it made my skin look slightly tan! It fits true to size.

If you have broad shoulders or a toned back, this dress looks dynamite. I also got tons of complements on the color. I was sad to send it back. The dress looked small on the hanger but stretched to fix perfectly. The fabric is very forgiving. The straps were a teeny bit long (I have a small bust) but that was fixed with a slightly padded strapless bra. I thought the dress was a little itchy around the shoulders when I first put it on, but I didn't notice it the rest of the night. By the way, if you are looking for a nail polish match, Sephora by OPI's Already Famous is dead-on.

This dress was Uh.Maz.Ing! I wore it to a wedding and it was perfect. I usually wear a 6 so I ordered a 4 and a 6. The 6 worked but I would have been more comfortable in an 8. The top part of the dress was a bit snug and I have a small chest. The color is gorgeous and the fabric is very forgiving. I would love to keep this dress! :)

I wore this dress to a wedding and it was a hit! I had another guest who came up to me and said my dress was the most beautiful in the party outside of the bride's, of course. My husband even had a friend who commented to him how beautiful my dress was! The dress is body hugging and shows off your figure. But it's stretchy so you can still walk and dance comfortably in it. But like some people said, the straps are slightly short. So if I had to change anything about this dress, it would be to extend the straps by about 1/4". Otherwise, I'm very happy with this rental.

I ordered a size 2 and a size 4 in this dress. Don't freak out when you see the dress on a hanger, it stretches a lot! There is a nude lining on the dress that kept peeking out all evening from the bottom hem, the neckline, and the straps. Other than that, this dress was great!

Wore this to an engagement party and it was all the rage. I received many complements on it, this dress really hugs you in all the right spots. I have a large chest and it fit well, the dress runs true to size, I ordered the a larger size as back up but didn't need it. It also comes down to just above the knee so if you are short like me just keep that in mind. I wore it with high beige heels and gold jewelry. It is a very gold dress by the way, not as white as the photo shows, also it seemed to be more pleated than the photo shows but it looks nice on. Photographs well too.

I loved this dress. I rented it for my Golden Birthday party and it was perfect. I ordered a 4 and a 6, and both dress actually fit really well. I wore the 4, but the 6 had a little more added length which was also nice. It looked really small on the hanger, but the dress has a lot of elastic, and was very flattering. I'm a little curvy, and it was fitted without looking too scandalous. Fabulous Dress!
