Needed backup size, would have helped.
Fits pretty true to size, but generally this brand runs a bit smaller than usual. Be warned and order a size up.

runs a true to size, maybe a size small but held everything together well!
fit great! extremely flattering I received compliments all night. Elizabeth and James is know to run a size smaller so to be safe order two sizes.

Sexy showstopper
Wore with the crop top. Fits like a glove. Comfy and well made fabric that holds you in as the night goes on. Want to buy this for my closet.

Perfect Vegas party dress! Outfit was a head turner and I felt like a celebrity.
Skirt runs small.. Be sure to order up. I'm generally an 8 or sometimes even a 6. The 10 hugged my curves perfectly and was just the right length. Fabric does not wrinkle and slit is very flattering when standing or walking. Def recommend this look for tall women. I want to wear it again!

Sleek & Sexy
I was disappointed to find a small tear in the skirt at the top of the slit. This made the slit open up a but more than intended and the skirt ended up laying strangely. I would have been better off with a size 4 as the waist was quite tight but it seemed very long so I'm not sure if that would have been right either. I liked the idea of the cutout but it was high waisted and the tank I wore covered most of it. Cute idea but didn't fit right with my body type.

Delivered right on time and so easy to return!
Loved it! So many compliments! The size 2 skirt fit also, but the size 4 worked better to see that it was two pieces

Perfect outfit for my night out in NYC!
I received so many compliments on this outfit, so many that I tried to buy the outfit afterwards but it is sold out almost everywhere! The skirt fit like a glove, the slit and cutout are super sexy. The only annoying thing was that there is no hook and eye closure so the side zip would sometimes come down a little bit.

Flattering, sexy, must pair with a crop top for best result. Could wear for anything.
Flattering without spanks, in fact you want your skin exposed at cut outs - just a little. So I sized up from normal 6 to 8. It is very slimming and fabric is thick enough to be forgiving. You have to wear a crop top to maximize the look of the skirt. I paired with nude heels and it was a huge hit. The only con was that the zipper would not stay up. Definitely needs a hook and eye and it would be perfection. Either rent with matching top or have crop ready. You will love it. It's great. But RTR - add a hook and eye!!

Cute but runs small
I love the cut of this and really wanted it to work but it was a little too snug and so it didn't work out. Would rent again in a different size

Loved it!
This skirt was so unique. I absolutely loved it - ended up wearing the 4 because the 2 was a tad snug. The length was the only major difference. Would definitely rent again!

Felt like a model!
I usually am a size 0 or 00 and this was true to size. I wore with the black perla top and dress me up necklace. I received all night long in my outfit! I had a baby 5 months ago so I was a little nervous but did not need any special undergarments-.

This skirt fits like a glove! It is classy and sexy. Received compliments all night!
I normally wear a size 2 but went up to a 4. The slit on the top on the skirt is really nice but size up so your skin isn't squeezing out. The fabric is thick and flattering. I wore this with a sequined crop top I had for a winter rehearsal dinner cocktail party. Received compliments all night! I would rent this again.

Eye catching skirt
Fabric has give but is not by nature stretchy - so stick with your usual Elizabeth and James sizing (for me with larger hips, I go up 1-2 sizes). The skirt is a great design with the slit up the front and on the side. The reason I didn't end up wearing it was because the skirt was a bit too snug for the side cutout. Beware - if you were to lean to one side and you have any extra skin at all - it may poke out through that side cutout and not be as flattering. It wasn't highly noticeable but i didn't want to be self conscious

Really beautiful outfit, got a ton of compliments!
The skirt can be a bit tight around the hips and rides up a little, and the tops zipper doesn't always stay in place. Other than that that, the outfit creates a gorgeous hourglass figure and adds a sexy yet classy edge. I will definitely be renting from RTR again!

Sexy and comfortable for dinner and dancing!
I'm typically size 4-6, but I went with the 8 here because I do have a slightly wider ribcage and it was high waisted, plus there was dinner to consider, so I wanted more room! Still very fitted and flattering, and the little cut out was sexy but not too over the top. I would wear this again, extremely comfortable and stays in place well. A little warm, though, as its lined and clearly high quality. Better for indoor or fall/winter.

Not stretchy
I wasn't able to wear this due to a shipping issue, sadly. I did try it on and loved the fit. Super sexy. There is very little give in this fabric so it wouldn't have been good for a night of dancing.
