My boyfriend heard about RTR from coworkers two days before our event. It saved me so much stress!

Very form fitting, elegant, beautiful design. It is sexy yet classy.

The dress fit like a glove. I felt like a model all night.

Easy to sit, dance and eat in_ the fabric is not restricting at all.

This dress was so comfortable and looked beautiful. It was perfect for dancing

It fit true to size and was the perfect length for me with 4 in heels. The material was clingy and stretchy, great for dancing. The lace design was beautiful. I received many compliments.

Loved it

Loved the dress. It fit great and I received a lot of compliments. The only downside is the straps are elastic and the weight of the dress on the hanger stretched them out so the lace on the back was loose. I had to use safety pins in order to make it look right. I wish I had another formal event coming up so I could wear this dress again.

This dress was amazing!!! I would definitely recommend it!

The dress was so amazing. I wore it to a gala and got complements all night. I usually wear a size 2 and noticed the sizing in the description said it runs small. The other reviews led me to order a size smaller though, and I'm really glad I did. A 0 fit perfectly. At 5'2" a regular was a little long though. I had to get some ridiculously high heals, but it was totally worth it. I was so happy with this dress and the necklace as well. I will absolutely use Rent to Runway agin the next time I have a formal event.

Gorgeous detail!

Everyone on here said the dress ran small. I'm typically a 6 so I put in an order for an 8 and 10. Especially after comparing my weight with everyone else's I figured the larger options would be safe. Last minute I changed the sizes to a 6 (my typical dress size) and an 8. I'm SO glad I did. The 6 fit perfect. 8 was too big. I posted a side and front picture so hopefully this helps you ladies out when comparing. The dress is lace so it is a bit stretchy. I also ordered a long because u heard the dress runs short which is true. I'm 5'5 and wore 3 inch heels and it just touched the floor. LOVED this dress. If you are looking for classy... This is one to order!

Super flattering for Curvy girls

I rented this at the last minute for the AHA heart ball. I just wanted something pretty and flattering on my curves. This did the trick! I fit in all the right places. It seemed like it was a tad short but other then that I loved it. Only funny side was that my friends date was wearing the same dress in navy blue.

Going into the physical location and getting to try on at least 10 options was very helpful!

The dress fit well, but wish I would have been able to get a size 2. The straps were a bit long (the distance between the shoulder and top of the dress was too big) so I had to pull the dress down a little to get it to fit properly. The material is very flattering and hugs curves!

Beautiful and comfortable but too long for me

This was my back up so I wasn't too disappointed about not wearing it. It was just too long. I am 5'0'' and I a wearing 6'' heels and it was still too long. Definitely not for short girls!!

Comfortable, glamorous dress. I felt like a celebrity all night!

Some of the reviews suggested sizing down, but I would say it's pretty true to size, especially if you have any curves. It was snug on my bust and hips/behind so anything smaller would have been too tight. It has a decent amount of stretch to it so it hugged my curves nicely without any pulling. One reviewer suggested using double stick tape to help keep the lace on the back flat, and if I hadn't been in such a rush getting ready, I would have done that. It still looked beautiful regardless, I was super comfortable (I even got away with wearing a regular demi bra), and got compliments all night!

Super comfortable!!

This dress definitely fit true to size, the stretchy material is very forgiving if you're in between sizes too! However, it's hard to find the right bra. My strapless bra flattens me out a bit and since there's no structure in the dress I didn't want that. The straps are lace, therefore see-through. I actually had a normal bra in the exact color of the dress. Also, I wore this with 4 inch heels and probably should have worn less than 3. Oh well, less opportunities to trip on the dance floor. Absolutely recommend it!

Amazing dress very flattering

Pros: stretchy, light weight, easy to wear, can wear with a regular bra so long as it is a Demi bra, beautiful color, beautiful lace, makes your chest look amazing, comfortable Cons: runs large but also runs short lengthwise I'm 5'7" and wore the 8L with flats could have probably wore kitten heels, but I didn't want my shoes to be visible, not really a con but if you are over 5'9 the long may not be as long as I think would look appropriate for the style however worked fine for me I wore for my sister in laws wedding, i paired with a mauve lip and a blush colored chandelier necklace. It was perfect for the fall season.

Short on me, but sexy!

The color of this dress is beautiful and the fabric has a nice stretch. My three stars is mostly because I think I was a little too curvy for it at the time, but the dress itself was great. The long size was still too short, but I was able wear some shorter heels and it worked.

Not quite right...

Was advised to rent backup a size larger, but found dress was stretched out and/or too large throughout the bodice, and straps. Returned and did not wear, as regular size and back up were both too large.

Great fit and color!

I wore the 4L for a black tie wedding and felt beautiful! I loved the deep purple color and stretch of the dress, and felt like it was a perfect dress for the event: glamorous enough to receive many compliments, but subtle enough to not stand out against the bride. I chose the dress for the stretch because I'm pregnant and didn't know when the baby bump would show up. It did show up that week, and the dress was very accommodating. I added a gold belt and shoes for accenting, and the 1 1/2" heels worked well with my height and dress length. Con: The top can feel a little low and make breasts look pushed down without a bra. The Fix: Wear a strapless bra and all is good! Mine never showed throughout the whole night! Overall a great dress for purple lovers!

Looked and felt great!

The material has a little stretch to it so it was very comfortable all night. The sleeves feels loose but the dress stays put so it didn't matter. It is short though I had to wear flats.

Glad I chose this as my backup

The bodice fit like a dream and the length was just right in 2.5" heels. Walking around I had a bit of an issue with my heel catching in my hem but nothing that couldn't be addressed by slowing down a bit. The shoulder straps were not as snug as I would've like but my husband thought they were fine.

The was dress for a gala. I received so many complements on the dress, especially the color & fit.

I initially chose another dress, but the delivery service lost it. I chose this dress because it was similar and it didn't disappoint at all! The color was amazing. The fit really showed off my figure and the height was perfect. I couldn't believe how many compliments I received while at my event.

Flattering, beautiful dress.

This dress is very flattering and simply beautiful. I am normally a 6 but ordered a 4 as a backup based on the reviews and I'm very happy I did because the 4 fit me best. The neckline and especially the back are the highlights of this dress so be sure you wear your hair up if wearing it down would cover up the back. The fabric stretches so it was very comfortable. Depending on your height you may need fairly high heels because the dress is on the long side. I am 5'5 and I wore 4" heels and they were the perfect height. I received a ton of compliments. You will love this dress!

The lace is gorgeous! Incredible fit!

I absolutely love tho dress! I wore this to prom, and I was getting compliments throughout the night. The lace is absolutely beautiful. The design of the dress is absolutely timeless, with the slight flare at the bottom. The only downside it that the straps were a little loose, but that's just because I have a short torso. The dress was a perfect length without heels, so when I wore them you could see them. I had an incredible time in this dress!

Felt like a million bucks!

I'm normally a size 4, I've never fit into a size 2 in my life until this dress. Definitely runs big! The fabric is stretchy and oh-so comfortable. I got so many compliments. The beautiful lacy straps were also a little big (I'm a 34B), but it was manageable. If totally rent this dress again in a heart beat.

Fit like a glove

This dress fit me perfectly. I am a little busty and it fit nicely on the top without it being too revealing. It was very long. I am 5' 11, and I still needed 3 inch heals to keep it from dragging too much. I would rent this dress again! I loved it.

I got more compliments than I can count! Loved it.

Before renting, I read the reviews and several people said to go a size down due to the lose straps. I listed and got a 4 instead of a 6 and a 4L instead of a 4R. The dress fit perfectly, I looked absolutely stunning, and the compliments just kept rolling in. RENT. THIS. DRESS.!!

Never felt so amazing!

The dress runs much larger than I imagined. I normally wear a 4 or 6 dress and for this one I wore the 2. I have a small chest with thick legs from lifting weights so the bottom was perfect but I needed to wear a padded bra to keep the top up a little! Other than that, the dress was amazing and I received so many compliments. I felt glamorous in it!

Beautiful and comfortable

Great dress and easy fit since its stretchy. I ordered 8L and 10L and chose the 10 to get the extra length. It was still about 1-2 inches shorter than I would have liked, but I'm 5'11" and wanted to wear 3" heals. Ended up not being too noticeable and the dress photographed well. Really loved using RTR!

I liked this dress a lot. It hugged my curves in the right places, but was flexible enough to move with me and not feel uncomfortable. The lace was a little worn but it worked with the vintage theme of the gala I was attending.

This dress was amazing!!!!

Wearing a long dress was a first for me! But this was a great start, Nicole Miller is my favourite designer, her dress was a flawless fit! I received endless compliments from all ages the entire night! The best part about this dress is definitely it's comfort. The material wasn't restrictive of movement or too tight, every thing about this dress is wonderful; I highly recommend it.

Belle of the Bash

I went to a red carpet event and received so many compliments, with more than one person approaching me just to say how much they loved the dress. For the fit, I'm 5'1 and my highest heels were about three inches, so I could have used maybe one more inch since it was a little long but walkable. I have full hips and thighs, but the dress only accentuated my curves in the best way.

Great dress!

Comfortable dress + beautiful purple color. My only complaint is that it was fairly short; I was able to wear 3-4 inch heels but the dress did not hit the floor and I am 5'4. Other than that it was great, and all you need is a strapless bra. I would definitely recommend!

9 months and still dancin'

This dress does stretch as everyone has commented, which was very helpful as I didn't know my true size at 9 months pregnant! A 12L may have been a better fit for me up top but I was guessing as to my size for this dress without being able to try it or the designer previously. I got quite a few compliments and recommend it to other preggos out there ready to party!

Why would you wear this dress and stretch it for the next user.? It's not yours there is respect for others property.

Nadya, she has as much of a right to rent it as anyone else! It's up to the company to ensure that all dresses are in wearable condition for the next renter, no matter who wore it before.

Perfect fit!

I've rented Nicole Miller before. This designer is perfect for curvy/sporty girls like me. I wear a size 4 and it is beautifully form-fitting. The lace on this dress makes it feminine and sexy. Would rent again. Got compliments all night.
