Noticeable and SEXY!
This dress was sexy, classy, and comfortable at the same time. My husband says that every guy was checking me out. I assume its the noticeable and colorful dress. I was impress of the thick material used for the inside lining of the dress. If you're short like me, this dress may landed just above the knee.

My favorite dress I've ever rented
I'm saving up to buy this dress because it really is elegant, tasteful, and yet subtly so sexy! I have big shoulders and still found that this dress complemented my body well. I am small-busted, so I wore the strapless miraculous VS bra that adds two cup sizes underneath this dress, and it gave me such amazing cleavage without any trace that I had a bra on underneath. I felt so confident in this dress and really felt like I stood out, especially with the bright red hue. I wore this with gold pumps, gold accessories, and the Kate Spade All Aboard Clutch to an Inauguration brunch and everyone kept complimenting me on my entire outfit.

Loved the bright red color and fit of this dress. The lace is stretchy so it really conforms to your figure.

This dress was both sexy and elegant, and hugged my curves.
This hit mid thigh, so showed some leg but not too much. I wore a strapless bra because it sits slightly off the shoulder. Even without a padded bra it showed off cleavage. My hubby loved it!

Beautiful dress. Love love love the lace shoulders and neckline! The dress was tight but the lace was stretchy so my normal size (S) fit best. The M fit, but the lace was loose and bunched a little around my stomach.

Perfect lace cocktail dress
Comfortable and flattering at same time - I wore it with a red lace victoria secret bra - straps blended in perfectly no issueswith the sleeves falling down - a little more cleavage than I'm used to showing but tasfeful - I received a lot of compliments on this dress.

The dress fit perfectly. I am 5' 7" and the dress hit above my knees. it was not as short on me as on the model which was perfect for me. Great dress for a special occasion.

Sexy and Classy Valentine's
I love the RTR service where you can request an additional size for free - this saved my Valentine's dinner night! I was so sure I'd fit in a L and I almost didn't bother ordering the XL. But I'm so glad I did. The L fit me very tight and I did not feel comfortable in it at all. The XL, however, fit perfectly. I generally prefer a bit of room in the clothes I wear which is why I preferred the XL. I felt that both dresses fit extra snug around my chest but I felt the bit of extra room in the XL. The cleavage is very generous and I was almost too shy to walk out in public in this dress. But by the end of the night I didn't want to take this dress off. I felt so sexy but classy and elegant at the same time. I received many compliments (especially from my husband). This dress truly made our 1st Valentine's dinner unforgettable for me (and hopefully for my husband too). I was so sad to send it back. I would definitely rent this beauty again!

Gorgeous dress that really shows off your curves
When the dress arrived I was initially a little nervous - close up the lace looked a little fuzzy as if it had been worn a lot. However, once it was on you couldn't tell at all. And even if you could, no one would be looking because it makes your curves look incredible!! The zipper was very sticky - difficult to move up and down even when the dress was off. But once it was on the dress hit me a little above the knee (I am short!) and fit perfectly everywhere. The light boning in the bodice brings you in at the waist, the panel down the back narrows your backside, and the sweetheart neckline would flatter anyone. The dress had the perfect amount of stretch so that is was comfortable throughout the evening and easy to dance in. I received a ton of compliments and really stood out among the sea of black dresses at this evening wedding. Highly recommended!

Is there such a thing as Too Sexy?
This dress is incredible. It is perfectly fitted and definitely "flaunts' your assets. I rented it for a date with my husband and he loved it. It is QUITE tight and def needed spanx, because every flaw is noticed without it. But with it...super sexy. I wish i had the medium though, because it was almost too fitted and short at the same time. Normally I like one or the other, but both is almost too much for my conservative nature.

I was complimented all night and had to go out after my event so that I wouldn't "waste" the dress!
The zipper on the M was a little tricky, but once I had the dress on, I didn't want to take it off! I wore the size M, which fit perfectly. The lining did ride up a little throughout the night, but I had no other problems with it. I wore it without a bra and was surprised to find that the support was great. The L was looser all over and longer, which wasn't the look I was going for for this event. Thinking about buying this dress because I loved it so much!

Didn't wear it.
Although it looked sexy from the front, the back was hanging off my body which was too strange. It seemed as though it was stretched out in the upper back area.

It was great! Whole experience was amazing.
All worked well. It was helpful to order 2 sizes (XS, S) because XS was a bit too tight for the occasion.

Red means sexy flattering and head turning!
I was slightly disappointed with the fit. You definitely need a push-up bra for this if you are on the smaller side in the bust area. However, in perfect lighting the red is more vivid than you would think it would be. It is more on the simpler side than an actual formal dress but with great accessories and nice hairdo you will end up looking fabulous. I received a lot of compliments and if no one else is wearing red you will definitely be noticed. Overall I was very pleased with the results and on top of that the dress was soooo comfortable. So if you want to be comfortable and look sexy and classy at the same time this is the dress to choose.

Beautiful dress. So classy, but also sexy.
It fit so well! I got so many compliments, the dress was perfect. It wasn't too tight, or too short. The lace was beautiful. Only thing is if you have a big chest you might want to go up a size, I was a little uncomfortable and didn't fit as well as I would have liked to in the dress. Other then that, I would absolutely recommend it!!

Really cute on top, but too long for shorter girls
I love the lace, but it was less "sexy" than I thought when I saw it online. The top was very flattering, but the length was too long/awkward that I went with the other, backup dress.

I rented this for a romantic dinner with my husband and it was perfect for the occasion.
I liked the color and the lace. It is a beautiful dress. However, it wasn't my favorite rental. I have rented several times before and I am always happy with the fit, but this time the dress didn't flatter my body. I felt it was tight on the shoulders. I normally wear XS, but this time I wore the S because the XS was too short for what I was looking for that night. If I would have gone to a party, I would have worn the XS. I think it depends on the occasion in this case. Other than that, dress arrived right on time, my shoes matched the color of the dress perfectly and I felt classy.

The dress fit perfectly, was super comfortable, and created an absolutely "WOW" entrance!
This dress fit like a glove. The lycra "slip" under the lace created a very nice shape. Make sure that your foundations fit well, as there is a potential for panty lines. The color is gorgeous -- more an orange-red than blue-red. LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress!! (and so did my boyfriend!)

It was very easy and took the pain out of hitting the mall for hours!
I requested the M and L... the M fit great (and the slip seemed more at length with the overlay) but liked that I had some more give with the L and didn't have to "suck in" as much especially after eating/drinking :) I'm curvy and it clung to the right spots and if you are a decollatage (SP!), this dress was amazing. I got a TON of compliments and several people said they voted my dress as the best of the night (and from people I didn't know!). I'm not a thong person and made sure to choose a nude color hipster as lighter & darker colors/prints were noticeable through the dress. I wore a push up strapless bra that wasn't at all noticeable and the bust has some stretch to help keep you in too and the straps were flexible enough so they didn't dig in. Very easy to move in...basically, I would've loved to have kept it!!!

Stood out in a sea of LBD's.
This dress was very suitable for a Cocktail style June wedding. The fabric was a nice light weight and it hugged my body quiet well. I was happy with the length of the lace overlay, however the fabric lining underneath the dress proved to be very annoying. I kept having to pull it down in fear that it would ride up! I don’t recommend this dress if you don’t care how your breasts look, I have a D-cup sized chest and the dress really didn’t do them justice due to the boning!!! Boning is the worst thing because it made my chest look unformed and a little flat. I tried to adjust the type of bra I wore but even that didn’t matter, the boning won and my breast looked less perky. All and all... I did feel sexy and my husband thought I looked great so despite my issues, it was a hit!

I wore this dress to my husband's residency graduation dinner and it was perfect!
The red color and lace material are really pretty! And it's a very comfortable dress. I ordered an XS and a S. I'm normally an XS in dresses, but it was just a bit too tight and short for the occasion. So I wore the S which fit really well and was a perfect length for me (I'm only 5'0"). I received a lot of compliments and was very pleased with this dress!

Felt like a million bucks!
I love Nicole Miller--her dresses fit so perfectly and flatteringly! Wore this for an anniversary dinner and my boyfriend absolutely loved it! The M fit really well. I'm 6'2" and it was short but not uncomfortable--could definitely sit down with no issues and felt totally at ease walking around and going for dinner. The dress is very slightly worn, but not noticeable if you're not wearing it. Overall, this dress was an amazing RTR experience!

Sexy but ladylike
I loved this dress. My husband kept taking pictures of me in it, which he never does. The neckline makes you look like a goddess. I'm 5'6" so it was longer on me than on this model, which made me happy. I usually wear an 8 in tight dresses and pants and I got the medium, which fit great.

This is a beautiful comfortable dress for a formal event.
I really liked the way it just barely hung off the shoulders, but you CAN wear a regular bra with it. I suggest a flesh toned one because black really stands out against the red in the event it does slide in one direction or another.

Wearing a designer dress without paying the cost was a plus.
It fit perfectly. It was comfortable, but the zipper was kind of tight. I had a hard time unzipping it to get the dress on. After my husband and I struggled with it, we got it to work. Received a lot of compliments.

LOVED this dress!
I got so many compliments from friends during the wedding and afterward, from those who saw the pictures. The only thing is, it does like to scrunch up so I had to keep pulling it down during the night. Small sacrifices...

Perfect dress for when everyone else was wearing a Little Black Dress...
This was my daughter renting on my account, not me, so her measurements are different than what you see above for me. She usually wears size 8 in dresses. She's about 5'8" 160 lbs and her measurements are approx. 36-28-44 and fairly busty. The dress looked fantastic. Was very form fitting (shows tummy a bit if you have one, but it's such a show-stopper that no one would notice!) The L gapped at the neckline a bit but otherwise didn't look much different.

The dress was not flattering and I did not wear it. There is very limited stretch.
If you have a full bust and have hips, keep browsing for another dress.

Perfect alternative to a bridal white bachelorette party dress
Wore this for my bachelorette party as my "stand out" dress (all my girlfriends wore black). I was so tired of wearing white to every wedding-related event-- this was the perfect alternative. Fit true to size and like a glove. Perfectly transitioned from our mellow dinner to the clubs. Love & will rent again...or buy. :)
