Customer service was great w/helping me find a replacement when the one I ordered became unavailable
I chose this dress after trying it on at the storefront (the original dress I ordered was returned late or damaged and I didn't like the replacement they chose for me). This dress fits like a glove and pictures don't do it justice because they don't show the subtle detailing that makes it even more flattering. I'm either an 8 or 10 in RTR gowns and the 8 fit perfectly. I would highly recommend this dress and will probably be renting it again in the future. Not only is it gorgeous but it's also the most comfortable dress I've ever worn!

FLATTERING AND COMFORTABLE !!
This dress fit PERFECTLY!! It is very flattering and most importantly it was super comfortable. I loved how stretchy the fabric on this dress was. If you're looking for a dress in which you can dance all night and look gorgeous at the same time; This is it!!!

I loved the fit of this dress and the way it made me feel!
It hugged me in all the right places without being uncomfortable. I'm only 5'3" so I needed to wear three inch heels and it still dragged a tad.

It was a perfect fit
I loved the dress! I ordered a size 12, which according to the Nicole Miller size chart is my size, and I ordered a 10. I ended up wearing the ten because the material is so stretchy. The only problem was that the top didn't fit exactly right because I don't have a large bust. But I wore 2 bras and that helped a little. When choosing the length I chose based on the hollow to floor measurement and it was perfect with a 1inch heel. It was the perfect dress for my final prom :)

Dress was beautiful, classy, and really stood out at prom.
I rented this dress for prom and even though it wasn't as flashy as other dresses, it still stood out and I got tons of compliments on it. It fits well and goes with almost any formal accessories you have, though I did have trouble finding a handbag that would do the dress justice. Like other reviews said it does roll over at the top so make sure to go out and buy fashion tape before it arrives. Overall a great dress and you won't regret renting it.

Black tie wedding
I wore this dress to a black tie wedding. I have a large bust 36F and the dress fit lovely without spilling out too much. The dress is definitely tight fitting hugs every curve while still being flattering. My one complaint is the zipper is awful. I ended up keeping the dress zipped and putting the dress on over my head. Otherwise it would not have zipped. I could barely unzip it while it lay flat on my bed. Other than the zipper I was pleased with the dress!

Fit like a glove!
This dress is amazing! Runs true to size and hugs every curve - it felt like it was custom made for me! I probably could have gotten away with the 4, but with my 4" heels, it was a bit too short. Like many of the other reviews mention, the lining at the chest tends to roll down, but with the right amount of fashion tape, it stayed put all night (and made the "girls" look great!) I can't wait to rent this dress again for another wedding in a few months!

Beautiful, sexy, and comfortable
I LOVED this dress!! It fit perfectly!! And runs very true to size!! I actually rented 3 dresses for a black tie wedding in Kiawah Island. I really liked all 3, but this one won me over! It was so comfortable and fit me great! My husband was a groomsman and my daughters were flower girls, so I wanted to be comfortable chasing after them. I would recommend this dress a hundred times over! I wish I didn't have to return!

Gorgeous, classy, and form fitting
I wore this as a bridesmaid. The bride requested that we wear any floor length black gown. I felt beyond gorgeous in this dress and received many compliments. I did have to wear Spanx, safety pin the straps, and use fashion tape on the bust line to keep it from rolling down. After those fixes though, I felt very confident.

Couldn't get zipper to work
This dress was gorgeous but I wasn't able to try it on because the zipper was stuck. I did end up wearing a very similar Nicole Miller dress from RTR that was the same size that fit like a glove so I'm guessing this would have been the same.

Perfect combination of elegant and sultry
Beautiful dress with intricate design. Had a very Spanish feel. I received tons of compliments throughout the night and felt very elegant. This dress is very fitted and hugs everything, so I would keep that in mind when choosing it for your next formal affair.

Looked great but super tight
The dress was beautiful. But if you are even slightly self conscious of your body, might not be the best choice. The bodice is very tight, stretchy material. I wore spanx, by the end of the night I felt like I couldn't breathe. But it looked great and got tons of compliments.

simple yet different
Sneaky sexy. Not gonna lie, kinda felt like my boobs were going to fall out at any given moment. But I'm a size DD with very small shoulders so my guess is most other girls with normal proportions would be fine :)

Kind of a dated look and was too close to Halloween to wear a witchy type dress
The dress is flattering but the material and cut and proximity of my event to Halloween made me think this was a little too "witchy" for the wedding I was going to. The other thing was that the top neckline was kind of flipping out so you could see the lining of the dress. Didn't end up wearing.

Flattering fit!
This dress was about 10th on my list as I rented too close to the date I needed it. It fit wonderful and I was complimented all night on it. I ordered a 0L and a 2L as back up. There was almost no difference between sizes except how the straps felt on my shoulders, so I opted for comfort with the 2L as my shoulders are a little broad. Will definitely be renting again!

Unfortunate zipper issues on a knockout dress
I rented the 4L with the 6L as my back up. While the 4 fit, it would not zip all the way. I thought maybe that meant that the dress really didn't fit, so I moved on to the 6L. Same zipper issue at exactly the same area of the zipper/dress. The only way for me to wear the dress was to zip it up all the way while off, then slip it over my shoulders and pull down to the ground. I would have loved to wear the size 4, but it was not making it over my shoulders all the way zipped, so I ended up wearing the 6 for the night. My chest did not fill out the size 6, so the top of the bust area sort of fell forward (I've seen this issue in other reviews). Long story short, I think the dresses have been worn so many time that the zippers can't really take it anymore.

The dress looked great and was perfect for a November evening wedding by the ocean! I got so many compliments and felt so comfortable all night. Also to note I am just about 5'10" and ordered the 4L which was just long enough to wear comfy flats but was not been long enough to wear heels,

I rented this for a Mardi Gras ball and it was perfect! Snug and fit in all the right places - even gave me a little extra cleavage. Perfect length with 4" heels. So many compliments that night.

Beautiful dress!
Loved the feel of this dress. It had a little stretch to it so it was very comfortable. The long length was perfect.. I'm 5'7 and had 3 inch heels on. The lining peeked out a tiny bit around the neckline but unnoticeable. Gorgeous lace.

The dress I did not wear
I wore my back up dress- this dress was ok, but no wow factor for me. It has lots of stretch- which showed every roll and bump! I guess size up if you have curves. The zipper worked ok but the lace straps were a bit loose.

I am so glad I rented the 8L as a backup because the 6L was too snug. I felt like I was going to pop out of it if I had worn it. The 8L fit comfortably and the length was perfect even with 4 inch heels!

Excellent customer service! Leila (spelling?) at the Flat Iron store was super helpful!
My first dress (Badgley Mischka sweetheart ruched black dress was too big) didn't work out so I went to the store to exchange it. I even made a styling appointment bc I NEEDED a gown for a black tie wedding. Due to it being last minute they only had the long length, but at a time crunch I can't complain! Great dress but the straps were a little too long and loose. A little double sided tape and a couple safety pins fixed that! Due to the loose straps I wouldn't rent this dress again, but maybe the Petite length would've fit better? All in all, It's a beautiful dress.

Super comfortable- Perfect black dress!
I didn't end up wearing this because there was a problem with the zipper (which was sad because I loved this one). The dress is very comfortable. it's tight but doesn't feel constricting. The lace and shape if the dress is flattering- it does show a lot of skin in the chest area, so it might be tough for big chested girls. All in all, I would have worn it if there wasn't a zipper issue!

Wow what a wonderful dress, I rented 2 dresses, I searched 100s of dresses and found 2 that I had to have. Both were amazing. I got tons of compliments and I can't wait to use Rent the Runway again. It made me feel beautiful even though I'm not a size 2

I loved this gown. I received many compliments and I was sad to return it. The only downside was the straps were to big and it was the smallest size available. Other than that, I was very happy.

Work for blacktie wedding. Compliments all night!
I felt truly glamorous in this. Wore the 2, as I just had a baby and the bust area is larger than normal on me at the moment. Bust was NOT fitting into the 0, although the 0 fit best elsewhere. 0 would have been short though... And I had 4 inch heels for the evening so the 2 was better for length and bust area. Wore spanx, although the fabric does suck in a little bit. Would rent again. It's simple but the lace is elegant. Felt beautiful but not flashy. Was perfect for blacktie wedding.

Good fit for people who sometimes find other 0s too loose
Got this dress overnighted to me when I was swimming in the 0 of my first choice. I had to wear the tallest heels I own to make the long work, I'm 5' 4.5". I have a small bust but was able to wear a dramatic push up bra by using garment tape to keep my bra straps in line with the dress straps.
