I didn't end up wearing the dress.
Both sizes were too tight in the hips, mostly because of the lining. I swam in the bust. Very pretty, a little more muted than expected, but not the right cut for me.

Floral dress for a wedding
I rented this dress for a wedding. It was not my first choice, but it was the one that ended up working out after some delivery and availability issues with RTR. I don't usually wear such floral dresses, so it was an interesting change. I wear anything from size 0-4 in dresses. (Why are sizes so inconsistent?) For this dress, 4P fit me but was a little long and loose. I am fairly flat-chested, and the dress flattened out my front a bit more. I had to pull up the dress throughout the night, but it never slipped dangerously low. I am 5'4" and wore 3.5" heels, but the dress still dragged on the floor. I picked it up to walk and dance all night. I should have worn taller heels.

It was so easy to rent, and everyone at the wedding loved the dress!
Absolutely LOVED this dress! I got compliments on it all night long. I was a little nervous about sizing bc I'm in between sizes right now. The 8 fit but was a little tight in the chest. I ended up wearing the 10R and just wore a strapless bra. It was so comfortable and I didn't have to fuss with it at all! The length was perfect too. in the picture I have about a 2" heel on and it just dusted the ground. I switched to flats during the reception and it still wasn't too long. Did have to pick it up a bit to dance tho. Perfect dress for a summer wedding, and the print is more stunning in person!

Such a pretty dress with bright colors!
My first impression of this dress was that the print was a little too much for me, but that quickly changed once I put it on! It was such a great fit and I felt like I could easily wear it with flats for a cute day out and about in the sun or to something more formal like my cousins beach wedding coming up. I would have to say its been on of my favorite rentals so far! I'm sure I could have gotten away with the 4 regular since I was originally planning to wear the flats I had on for the picture with it. Overall, an amazing dress!

Brought the color and flair to the party!
Not only did I love this dress, even my very critical bf said that he loved it. The dress is stunning. The colors are marvelous. I'm a curvy girl so I wanted something that would skim the hips and accentuate my top half. It did all those things. When I arrived at the wedding, everyone immediately complemented the dress saying it was "beautiful", "bright", "gorgeous" and other nice things. Two problems with this dress: 1) In the bodice, there was a stay that bulged out. I loved the dress so much that I didn't bother with returning it (as a replacement wouldn't have made it back in time). I'm hoping that my dress was just a fluke and that no one else has this problem. 2) The length was long. With 2 1/2 inch heels it grazed the ground. I was fine with picking it up through to move. Unfortunately, my dress looked like someone had either stepped on the hem with a heel or pulled the hem and there was a rip. The bottom was so flowy that I didn't even notice it until after I'd put it on before the wedding. So again, I loved the dress so much that I didn't even bother with getting a new one. All in all, this dress is a must-rent. It's fabulous, comfortable, stunning and fun.

compliments
This was not my first choice dress, but it worked in a bind. The boning is a little funny in the front, but paired it with a belt and it worked out perfectly. Received a lot of compliments from other people at the wedding. the floral pattern is very bright.

Summer date dress
Wore this for a summer date day. The top looked a little odd but beautiful and unique dress. I am 6' tall and ordered the 4L. A tiny bit too long with flats and perfect length with 4 inch heels. Love that it is available in long for tall girls!

Perfect for an outdoor wedding
I wore this to a wedding at a vineyard. It was a great choice for the venue, and people were complimenting me on the dress all night. I was a little worried after reading some other reviews that the dress would be really long on me (I'm on the shorter side), but I wore 4 inch wedges and it was fine. The top of the dress is surprisingly snug, but it actually seemed to fit better throughout the night. I'm really happy I chose this dress!

gorgeous dress!
I wore this dress for a beachy wedding in San Diego. It is beyond beautiful. I found the dress to run mostly true to size, if anything a little big. I rented the long and definitely wish I had ordered the regular length. I am 5'8" and even with 3 inch heels I had probably 3 extra inches of fabric dragging around all night. I would definitely rent this dress again, next time in the regular length.

I rented this dress for a wedding and it fit perfectly except for the length. I talked to a stylist because I was worried about the length (being only 5' tall), and she said I shouldn't have a problem with 4" heels. Even with 4" heels, the dress was way too long. I had to hem the dress up with fabric tape for the night. Other than length, the dress was beautiful.

Great dress for outdoor wedding!
Dress runs true to size. I am between a 4-6 and ended up going with the 6 because the 4 was a little tight with a bra. Also, it is very long! I ordered the regular length even though the long was recommended for my height (5'8") and I'm glad I did! I was hoping to be able to wear the dress with flats but ended up wearing 3" heels. However, it's a beautiful dress and I loved wearing it!

This was the third dress I ordered - overall, eh.
The original dress I ordered was not available in my size - RTR contacted me only a day or two before the event to notify me of this. I was offered the opportunity to get another size in my backup dress, or choose another dress altogether. I chose another dress altogether and I'm glad I did. My original dress was orange and white - the white was more of a dirty white. Fine, I tried my backup dress. It was chiffon on the outside and the chiffon had clearly been torn and sewn back up, but on an angle, not in any way disguised as a seam. This final dress fit well, and had no problems with the color or chiffon. However, the piping in the top on the right breast was concave and caused the top to look offsided when I wore it. Luckily, I'm not too upset by my dress not being perfect - the wedding is about the happy couple, not me. Yet, had it been a different type of event, I would have been more upset. Not sure I'd use RTR again.

Vibrant dress - beautiful for a beach wedding.
I thought this dress was really nice, though it wasn't as flattering for my body type as I'd hoped. It also doesn't have much give, so even though the 8 and 10 both fit, I found the 10 more comfortable for wearing all evening. Beautiful dress!

Great service as usual from RTR!
I rented this dress for a fundraiser concert event. It was a great dress, pretty fabric, lightweight. My only complaint is that it fit kind of weird in the top. I am a 34DD and wore a strapless bra with little padding. This dress was still a little loose in the top almost like it was stretched out some. It fit fine especially since I put a cardigan over it to "casual it up" a bit but I did find myself pulling it up several times throughout the night. It also does not cinch back in under the bra area so it has a flattening effect on the girls. The next size down was too tight in the ribcage area. Almost like the proportion of waist to chest is off. Bottom line, if you are really busty it may be an issue but if not, no problem.

I wore this dress to my brother's garden wedding and bar reception. Worked great in both venues!
I had to wear flats due to an injury so the dress was too long, but most people will wear heels! I didn't have any issues with it falling down. Overall a great dress!

This dress was perfect for a destination wedding in Mexico!
I'm not exceptionally tall, but other long dresses usually hit me at a strange ankle-length. This Nicole Miller dress in a size "2L" was a great length. (A little long, but too long is always better than too short). The dress is also relatively light weight so you can wear it on a hot day.

The fit was perfect as described. Unfortunately this was way too long for me and could not be fixed with my highest heels and hem tape. Gorgeous dress though and wish I could've made the length work :(.

Perfect pop of color for my rehearsal dinner
Overall, this dress was great. I selected it specifically to go with the Kate Spade "Mr and Mrs" clutch. My only minor issue was the fit at the top of the dress. I love Nicole Miller and I'm usually a perfect 8 in her strapless dresses (they're sometimes a tad tight on the bottom, but fit perfectly on top). This dress was actually a bit big on top and I felt like I was constantly pulling it up to make sure my bra didn't show . I ended up wearing a little black sweater to provide a little coverage, but I would've preferred to wear the dress by itself. As far as length went, I wore 2.5 inch wedges and the dress was just touching the floor; the regular length worked out great.

NO ONE could stop talking about this dress.
Honestly, I really wanted to wear the 8R but something was weird with the zipper so I wore the 10R. It was slightly roomier up top, but it wasn't a problem at all, not even on the dance floor. I'm a 36C and the 8R would have been more "fitted" to my chest but the 10R just gave a little more breathing room. I didn't even wear a bra with this dress because it comes with pads (which you can take out if you need to). I'm 5'6" and length was perfect with 2 inch heels. This dress is VERY slimming. It made me look extremely good, and everyone complimented me on it. Also, you can't tell but I'm a Type 1 diabetic and I had an insulin pump tucked into Spanx underneath the dress. Again, no one could even tell I was wearing it. Highly, highly recommend this. I can't say enough about it. It's my favorite RTR item so far.

Perfect dress for a summer wedding
The only unfortunate part was that it was a bit too long for me - I had to magic tape it to bring it up 1.5in. Lots of compliments and it felt comfortable. The patterns are not too flashy but just enough to make you stand out amongst solid color dresses around you. This shipment came in after a fiasco of a previous fedex order getting stuck on a derailed train many states away 1.5 days before the event. Kudos to the RTR staff who helped me get a new coordinated set just on time. In a short period of time she helped me find the perfect dress and a matching purple purse by RM. Wish I could have thanked her in person.

So uncomfortable!
I was so excited to rent this dress - I loved the spring floral print. Unfortunately this dress is built for someone with a smaller chest. I ordered an 8 based off of my waist measurement, and when I got the dress it did not fit at all. It completely flattened out my chest with the boning, but was somehow still too large in the waist (see the 2nd and 3rd photos). It was so uncomfortable and unflattering that I couldn't bring myself to wear it :( As far as length goes, I'm 5'9" and the regular length was perfect for flats/sandals. If I wanted to wear a heel I would definitely need the long (but why wear heels when your dress covers them anyway?).

The dress I fell in love with and couldn't compare to any other dress.
It was the perfect dress for the occasion. I wanted something fit for the weather and the season and this definitely fit that criteria. It was true to size and just beautiful. The colors of the dress were amazing. Just perfectly beautiful. It was too long for me but then I also didn't wear too high of a heel (probably 2-3 inches heel). Nonetheless that didn't stop me from wearing it. I felt beautiful with the dress. Also, the package delivery was prompt and just easy to rent. However, the package didn't com with the garment bag that they said it would. Wish I could have the garment bag hehehe Overall, dress is beautiful and renting it was definitely easy and worry free.

Beautiful dress! I got compliments all night!
It was a little long on me (they didn't have a petite option for my size) but with heels it was fine. I wore gold accessories (belt, bicep cuff) and it complimented the dress perfectly! I can't say enough about how pleased I was with this dress!

Stunning
I wore this gorgeous gown to my friends' wedding. The fabric is a very light chiffon, which was perfect for a slightly chilly spring evening. I ordered the 8R and 10R. The 8R fit everywhere but at the top, so I wore the 10R, which was a bit too loose in the bust, but worked nonetheless. The vertical pleating in the front of the dress really accentuates your waist, which is always a concern when sizing up for bust reasons! I am just short of 5'7", and planned to wear 3" heels for the wedding. However, both sizes skimmed the top of my feet, so I wore flats instead. If/when I rent again, I will definitely order the L length. Overall, I highly suggest renting this dress. People will not stop complimenting you all night!

I unfortunately did not get to wear this dress, too long and big
The dress was gorgeous, don't get me wrong. However, it was to my surprise the size 8 fit was very large in the chest area and dragged on the floor with 4" heels on (I have DD chest and I'm 5'6). I did not have a smaller size to wear since the reviews said to size up so my backup size was out. I was not used to having these fit issues and did not want to have to keep pulling this dress up and worry about ripping the bottom at my brother's engagement party if I requested the size 6.

Thrilled first time user!
I thought this dress was lovely, the beautiful pattern was a nice stand out at the large wedding I had attended. I was in between the two sizes I had ordered and ended up wearing the 4R with strapless bra to the ceremony but it was very difficult to breathe due to the ribbing in the dress. So I made a quick change into the 2R for the reception which was tight enough in the bust to go bra less (which I prefer not to do) but, was a better length for my height and was much more comfortable. As a first time user I found the process super easy and I look forward to using it again.

Great Summer Dress
I rented this dress for our housewarming party over the weekend. I thought it was great, but it was super long, just like the rest of the reviews said. I went with the 6R because it fit the best, but it was a little tight in the top (since I'm a bit busty). The 8R was too big and I couldn't keep it up, so I picked the lesser of two evils. I had a lot of compliments and wish that I could keep this dress, hem it, and wear it again!

VIvid colors, figure flattering, super comfy
My first experience renting the runway, and I couldn't be happier. This was actually my second choice dress. The first choice was slightly damaged, so I was overnighted this one. Blessing in disguise. This dress was SUPER comfortable for eating and dancing, and the colors were gorgeous. I think it would look great on all body types. I ordered a 6, but probably could have used a 4 because the top was a little roomy-not enough to worry about it slipping down, though. I'm 5'3 and it was still a little long after 5 inch heels, so would be excellent for anyone on the taller side. If you rent this dress you'll wish you owned it. I do.
