Loved it!! Elizabeth and James is quickly becoming one of my favorite designers on here!
fit was perfect, was able to wear a strapless bra and under garments. I might even look to purchase this dress as it could work for many occasions. Great LBD!!

I did not end up wearing the dress.
Unfortunately, neither size fit. I would have loved the dress if it did! I do not suggest it for an athletic girl. My shoulders were too broad for the size 2 and the size 4 resulted in these weird air pockets at my hips. It is supposed to be a fitted dress so it looked strange with that.

I didn't wear this dress only because it was a little more plain than I wanted for a wedding. The material is thick and slimming.

Fun party dress
This dress fit like a glove and the neckline really shows off your shoulders. It was a tad constricting for dancing but otherwise it was perfect!

Perfect Little Black Dress For Everyone!
This dress was honestly perfect for a late summer wedding, I got more than a handful of compliments on it, Due to the interesting neckline I decided to pair the dress with some killer earrings instead of a bib style necklace like many others did. The material is super form fitting but has a smoothing effect to it. I did not feel the need to wear spanks or anything else restricting. Totally worth the rent, I may even purchase the dress after just to have it in my closet for other events.

Very form fitting
This was a great LBD. I had to use this dress as a backup because my other RTR dress didn't fit. I usually don't like tight fitting dresses because my hips are wide so I was constantly pulling the dress down. It was nearly impossible to go to the bathroom in because it was so tight on my hips I couldn't pull it up without a struggle! I received a ton of compliments on it and it photographed really well.

Tight but comfortable LBD - perfect for partying!
Elizabeth and James makes the best LBDs! This dress is tight but the high neck and length keep it from looking too over-the-top. Comfortable and easy to dance in. Would definitely rent again and highly recommend!

Runs small!!
I rented this dress to wear to a wedding and was really excited about it, however, it runs really small. I am typically a size 4 and I couldn't even zip this dress up. I'm bummed I couldn't wear it and would consider renting it again in a larger size.

The dress was stunning and was very flattering. Perfect for homecoming.
Dress was easy to move in and is in a slimming fabric. Wore it in October and was not too hot or cold in it. Definitely would recommend for anyone who is tall. I am. 6'1 and the dress was not too short or skimpy looking in any way.

This dress was great! It showed off all of the right things while still being comfortable.
It fit well, but I did have to size up. The asymmetrical hem was a great touch since it was such a simple dress otherwise. The length was perfect for me. My only complaint with the dress was that the satin lining peeked through a bit if I wasn't careful.

Vegas!
The fabric is nice and thick and does not show imperfections which is nice. I have little shoulders but a not so small butt, so I wore a 4 and it fit perfectly. I am usually a 2.

Great LBD
The dress was gorgeous. My first thought when I pulled it out of the package was that it was more curvy than I had expected, particularly around the hips. It didn't fit me perfectly but I don't have much shape to my body. I am usually a size 0 in dresses and rented a 0 as my first choice which fit perfect around my hips and stomach but it was too tight to zip up by my shoulders (I wouldn't consider myself to have a wide back and I am small chested). The 2 fit much better on the top but since there was a curve to the hips in the dress, there was a small amount of extra fabric that bunched at the hips. I'm sure this was unnoticable to other people, but I would have loved if it fit like a glove on my whole body since it was a more expensive rental. The style was great, it is very flattering to shoulders- I was afraid the cut would dig into my body under my arms, but not at all. The slanted bottom added a nice touch which made it not so average. The fabric was also very flattering, tight but thick enough to smooth out your stomach. Overall great dress if you are looking for a simple, but not boring, black dress. I would definitely recommend it! (Just keep in mind the curviness if you are like me and have no shape- although probably wouldn't prevent me from renting it again)

Very sexy, alittle short and alittle tight on legs. Great for girls night or sexy date.
I ordered 2 styles to choose from, and this one I did not wear. It was a sexy little black dress, I like the top cut. It fit me very well, however I'm thin and I workout, and the bottom of the dress was just a bit too snug around the circumference of my legs I felt like if I stood too wide or stepped too long, you would see it squeeze into my skin. Also the back of it with the higher angle cut was just alittle too short for the type of wedding I was attending. However, this would be great for a girls night out or a sexy date night!

Renting at the RTR store in Vegas was super easy! And this dress got so many compliments!
This was my first time renting and I could not have been more happy. This dress fit in all the right places, but was still appropriate for the event I was at. I got so many compliments on this dress! It is what some might consider tight under the bust, but it is not so much tight as it in just a high end design. I loved it and for the first time in a while I was just able to out something on and wear it as is. Being only 5 foot tall this was a great length.

Cute, but too small.
I wasn't able to wear this dress because it was too small. The fabric was really nice, and I bet if I would have had the correct size, it would have been really great.

No other dress like it at Homecoming!
I rented this for my daughter to wear to her homecoming dance. She's pretty tall so I was pleased that the length was generous. The dress was comfortable for a night of dancing and fun. She didn't want to take it off! ("About You" below is for my daughter since she wore it).

Very flattering, very firm fitting
I wore the smaller size, 2, rather than 4, because the 4 bunched up at the hips. The 2 was very fitted on me, but if you don't get a size that fits very tightly it seems that it will bunch up on the sides. It is a flattering look, but very form fitting and not very forgiving in the belly area. Also even with a racer back bra I still struggled keeping the straps covered (in the front near the shoulder)

Loved being comfortable and not worried about being too exposed, but still sexy.
I have big quads and a big booty and the 6 was pretty tight downstairs. Not uncomfortable but my leg movement was a bit restricted until the dress rode up a bit. I also have a wide back and I was able to zip it without feeling like my lats were going to pop the seams. I'm a 34DD but the top fit like a glove. Very comfortable. I was able to wear a racerback bra. Good for someone with an athletic build.

I loved this dress so much that I bought it! It runs a little small, so definitely size up (I normally wear 4 and wore the 6 which was snug). Overall the most perfect LBD.

I wore this dress to our annual Christmas party. The dress was perfect for its shape, fit, and length. The material is thick but still stretchy, allowing it to fit to your body. The length was comfortable to sit and dance in. I loved this dress!

I wore this dress for NYE and LOVED it!
I literally did not want to send this dress back! Sadly, I completely forgot to get a picture of it, or else I would have happily attached it. It's a great dress if you've got a smaller waist and bigger butt/thighs because the dress has a slight stretch, and gives a perfect slimming silhouette. I bounce between a size 4 and size 6, but went with the 4 because it was a little more fitted, in a good way, not too tight. I don't have much of a chest, so I was able to squeeze into the upper body of the 4. You can't go wrong with this dress if you've got a larger bottom half and smaller chest!

Gorgeous, but too small
Super disappointed. Dress is beautiful, but too small. 1'm 5'2", 120lbs 32D. I ordered the 0/2 and could barely get the 2 to zip all the way. very snug. I would recommend sizing up in the one for bust.

Classy, sexy, stunning dress!
Rented this dress for New Year's Eve- it was absolutely stunning. Great quality. Fit like a glove! The bottom hem was a little snug, but not a deal breaker. The size 6 fit loosely in the waist, but the 4 fit perfectly. For reference I have a 27" waist, and 38" hips and athletic thighs.

I did not wear it, but it seemed like a quality dress just not what I was looking for.
It is tightly fitted on the top but made for ladies with hips so if you are more of an athletic build it may not fit quite right. Overall, nice material but not stretchy like it may look.

Very classy!
I liked this dress a lot, but it just fit weird. I have a super small waist and a butt and boobs, so it was big in the waist, perfect int he butt, fine in the boobs. But the 0 was PERFECT int he waist, and too tight everywhere else. I was pretty much in between a 0 and a 2. I wouldn't' rent it again, but it was still a great dress.

STYLIST REVIEW
GIRLS NIGHT OUT! Always size up on Elizabeth and James dresses. This designer runs small over all. The dress is tight and has no stretch so you will need to ensure that you are choosing your sizes wisely. Great for A-C cup sizes.

Reliable, dependable, and wonderful! Once again, thank you RTR!
I rented both the size 4 and 6 in this dress. I'm a usual size 4 and ended wearing the 4. A lot of previous reviewers said it ran small.. This is true if you have a large bust like I do. The 4 was snug on top and rib cage area but the 6 bunched up and didn't look right in the hips/butt area. This dress is meant to be snug, so the 4 looked better overall. Was able to dance, sit, and walk in it. Perfect dress for the occasion!

I ordered a 4 and 6 of this dress for New Years. The fit was perfect for the size 4 except for the bottom. It's really tight around your legs, which makes it hard to sit and walk around comfortably. I typically wear a 4, so would say this dress runs small. The 6 was more comfortable at the bottom, but was too loose around the hips. I didn't end up wearing either unfortunately.

Cute hemline, fitted silhouette, can dress up or down
The fit was a little strange. I'm usually a 2, but I got a 4 in this dressed based on the other reviews. The top part was pretty tight and fitted, but the hip area was to large. It's a bit tight so it makes movement a bit slower, but its a cute dress.
