Cute, fun dress
Pretty color- bold, but not overly bright- so it worked well for a date night out to the theater. It's definitely short, so I felt more comfortable with black tights and boots with it. Wish I had gone a size up. I am usually a 2 or 0, but I felt like I had to "suck it in" in the 2. The arms were also tight, but not impossible to move in. The slits at the top of the shoulder we also kind of weird for my taste, but I had my hair down so it wasn't even really noticeable. All in all, fun to wear, go up a size for back up.

Great dress for fall/winter weddings!
I loved this dress! The color was great and the length was perfect. To get an idea, I'm 5'5'' 120 lbs and I typically wear a size 2 but went with a size 4 because I wanted to try and hide my stomach a little more. The difference between the two sizes wasn't much at all but felt more comfortable in the 4. The arms are a bit snug but that didn't bother me at all. The fabric is on the thicker side so perfect for colder weather occasions. I'd definitely recommend this dress to anyone!

Felt pretty for a NYE Wedding!
I wore this for a New Years Eve wedding. The color is great and material is nice, and I did receive a few compliments on how nice the dress was. However, I did feel like it was a bit snug in the arms, but since I failed to order the second size free (an accident) I didn't have another size option to choose from. I guess it just wasn't the most comfortable thing I've ever worn so I probably wouldn't rent it again. It accomplished what I needed it for though and I felt pretty in it.

Great color for a New Orleans Wedding
Got tons of compliments on the color and cut. As a curvier lady, drop waist isn't always my friend. This dress tapers at the waist, though, so you don't look like you're wearing a sack. One con is that because the skirt is flouncy, the hem doesn't hit your legs at all and it feels as though your goodies might be out on the dance floor. You've gotta trust that they are tucked away, and twirl with caution.

Great first time experience! Super cute dress; fit like a glove.
I wore this to a work Christmas party. This was my first time renting so I was skeptical. The dress fit perfectly and was in excellent condition. I was worried about the length, but it wasn't too short at all. I received a ton of compliments. Very cute dress!

Nice form fitting... good for small girls
Did not get to wear it :'( My birthday party got cancelled so didn't get to actually wear it... though I did tried it on and it looked very nice, nice fabric well made; form fitting for a small girl like me :) (hard to find form fitting for my petite frame)

Unique and amazing color
Pros: very comfortable. Really chic. Amazing color. More of a deep wine purple not as pink as on the model picture. Cons: yrs snug around the arm but not unbearable. Felt short but it wasn't. Would hands down recommend this dress. Loved it.

rented for sister's bridal shower in November
The color of this dress is beautiful, but the fit was not right for me. The sleeves were very tight and the body of the dress is definitely meant for someone with a long torso -- it bunched thickly on me due to the weight of the material. The flared skirt also starts very high so this dress did not feel appropriate for an adult in her 30s.

Def size up on this hip hugger. Cute dress but not overly forgiving. I'm usually an 8 and while it fit the 10 was way more comfortable.

Great color and flattering fit for a fall wedding
Wore this dress to a Fall wedding and received a ton of compliments. The dropped waist and flouncy skirt made for some interesting moments when the wind picked up. I didn't have the size 4 for reference, but I'm normally a 2 and that ended up being a good fit. Arms were slightly snug around the openings.

Favorite part about this dress: the color!
I was a little skeptical about this dress because of the way it elongates the torso, but I was not disappointed. The color was probably the best part but the shape of the dress was also eye-catching. The sleeves were a little tight, but not to the point of discomfort. The fabric is a little thick which was perfect because I wore this to a boat party, and of course it was really breezy. Taking one star away just because the dress smelled a bit funny when I took it out of the garment bag. But another awesome rental nonetheless.

I wore this to our Spring Court Debutante Ceremony. Stood out in a room of LBDs.
I did feel like it was a bit snug across my shoulders, and because of the flare of the skirt, I felt like it was a bit short, although my husband said it was not. I'm 5'4", so it was closer to my knees than on the model. It was beautiful, and I stood out in a room of LBDs.

The fit of the dress allows flexibility for movement.
It was a great length for a casual night out. The flare at the bottom added a flirtatious and fun look to the fitted top.

This has the cutest skirt ever and is a GREAT color!
Okay... first, let me say I LOVE this dress! I was worried about the little slits in the shoulders showing my bra straps but they are TEENY and not very noticeable. Now... prepare yourself for this one to run a bit small. I felt like my arms were two sausages in the sleeves... but they did stretch out and get comfy within about ten minutes. Also, GET SPANX! Even if you have the smallest of tummies a slimming undergarment will make you feel a bit more sleek. You could also wear a slim belt at your natural waist since this has no upper waistline (only the drop waist above the flirty skirt!). If I could do this again (and I might) I would probably order a 6 not a 4 just so I didn't feel like I was tugging on this dress ever few minutes to get it to fit right over my hips. Still, Elizabeth and James continues to be one of my all time favorite brands and this dress (even though its a little snug... yeah yeah I should probably do a little more gym and less pool/wine time)... is a great one for work/parties/bachelorettes/weddings/vacay!

This is a cute dress that functions well for a party.
This is a fun dress, but still conservative. The slits on the shoulders did not show on me as prominently as the picture on the model indicated. Also, the material is thick so this would not be great for a outside event or hotter weather. As other reviewers indicated, the sleeves are bit tight. Overall though, I really like this dress and it's a style that is flattering on many body types.

Unfortunately, I did not wear this dress
This dress is beautiful, but it did not fit me well. I am 5'4" and 120. Pretty straight and narrow, but I found that the way that my hips hit with the drop waist looked strange. The 4 was too small all together. I could have worn the 6, but it was a bit tight in the shoulder. (couldn't lift arms too far up with out bringing the whole dress with me!) I think this dress would be best worn in the Fall or with tights and boots in the winter as the material is a bit heavy for Spring/Summer.

structured, fitted, but not spandexy
arms were tight (fitted), the rest of the dress was perfect. I read the reviews and knew I should go up a size (6) because I usually wear a 4 and that was a wise decision. My fiancé wants me to rent it again.

Loved this dress - great fit.
The dress fit was great - good length, flattering style, comfortable. I think maybe I should have gone with a 4 ONLY because the sleeves were pretty tight. I wore it to a wedding and I felt very constricted while dancing. That's about the only con. Loved everything else about the dress.

Super cute fit and flare!
Ended up wearing this my first day of my 4th year of med school rotation, the flared skirt ended up being a tad less forgiving than I anticipated but it wasn't SO SHORT on me that it was inappropriate. Mind you-I'm short with short legs. This is more of a length for a date dress, so I wouldn't rent for a conservative affair.

Pop of color in a sea of black
I needed a semi-casual dress for a charity event where most people were coming straight from work and this was perfect. Very easy to dress up or down. The drop waist made me feel like it was shorter than it actually was, but once I got used to it, it was fine. I can fluctuate between a 4 and a 6 and the 6 fit perfectly.. The 4 was too tight in the arms.

Would recommend-very comfortable!
I really like this dress. I actually paired with leggings for work. It was tighter around the midline than I expected. I'm usually between a 6 and a 8 and I'm glad I ordered the 8. It's fully lined but very comfortable. I wore in the spring and didnt feel like it was too heavy for that season.

didn't work on my body shape
everything fit just fine but instead of falling nicely like it does on the model and my gf who wore it, it flared out a lot more on the bottom and ended up making me look incredibly bottom heavy and not in a flattering way. maybe it doesn't work because my hips are wider?? either way, i know this dress is fantastic on others but def didn't work for me

Loved the color and cut of the dress.
Ordered size 8 and 10, 8 fit but was a little too short over bum area, 10 fit a little longer so it was more comfortable and I didn't have to worry if I bent over a little too far. Wore for a night out at the ballet and loved it, great color, good weight for cold spring night.

Always happy with the fast delivery and ease of the return.
Loved the dress. The color was perfect. I rented this dress for my 10 yr anniversary. I could only rent the 6 as the other sizes were not available, but glad it fit (a little snug). As I looked over the other comments from people who rented this dress the sleeves were a little tight if you have athletic type arms. It was a perfect length as some mentioned it was too short. Overall it was a great dress. I surprised my husband and glad I rented. This is my 3rd rental and I know I will rent from RTR again.

I rented this as a backup/ dress to wear to the church. It was so tight Even in the arms. Granted I do not have skinny arms but I couldn't swing it! Just not made for my curves. Disappointed cause I love the color.

Very nice purple dress
This dress was great for my bridal shower, which fell on a very cold, snowy, February day. I definitely needed the long sleeves and I liked that it looked good with stockings. The dress fits true to size. The torso section was a tad long for me, but over all great!

Bright, beautiful, fun!
It's a shame I don't have a picture of this dress in color because that was my favorite aspect of this dress! It paired perfectly with turquoise earrings and camel color heels. The fit is snug through the arms, but is still comfortable. The flounce of the skirt makes it feel a little shorter than it is. I had so much fun in this dress and got so many great compliments.

Color!!
This dress ran a bit tight but that could also be because I'm just a little pregnant. Wore spanx tights and it helped! Got so many compliments! My only complaint is that it feels a lot shorter than it is, I was tugging on it all night being self conscious about it. Ended up not being a problem though!

I unfortunately did not get to wear this dress & had to wear a back up dress!
The dress runs small and it is short! I am a size 4 and got my normal size. It was too small in the arms and bust. The dress was really short too. I would have needed to wear stockings just to give me the extra coverage. I based the sizes that I ordered on others reviews and there were a lot of mixed reviews about size and length.
