I wasnt able to wear this for my event!

The dress is NOT good for curvy girls. Its more of a shift dress and I usually wear a 10/12 dress size and the 12 wouldnt even zip. I should've known E&J would run small but I figured I would take a risk. I would suggest this for a straight body type.

Fun party dress

Runs a bit bigger than other E+J dresses, but doesn't have stretch, so if you are broad through the midsection or hips, it might be better to size up. Lined, well constructed, and a beautiful color - got tons of compliments and it was very cute. I am 5' 5", and it came above mid thigh (definitely felt a little short at times), so keep that in mind. Otherwise, it worked very well.

I wore this dress to a June wedding held at a restaurant in downtown Boston.

The color of this dress is a beautiful Carolina blue! The dress fit was tight in the body which I wasn't expecting. I think that I would have been more comfortable in a size 6 however it was not available as a back-up for the dates I needed. Everyone said the dress fit like a glove and was beautiful. I would have preferred to not have to focus on sucking in all night :)

This dress would be perfect from anything to a cocktail party to a wedding.

I really loved this dress. It was classy and sophisticated. I ended up needing the 12 even though I usually wear a ten. I wore Spanx under it and it was a good fit. There is absolutely no stretch to the material so size accordingly. The ruffle at the chest is very flattering and there are distinct seams running along the back which I really liked because it made it seem more fitted. I am only 5'2" and it was a flattering length, hitting just at the knee. I am a teacher and wore this to chaperone our school's prom and thought it was just perfect-- compliments all around.

GORGEOUS DRESS

This dress is stunning. It is so well made and it fits like a glove. I ordered one size up just because a lot of reviews said there wasn't a lot of stretch..and I'm so glad I did!

This dress was true to size and the material is a nice thick and comfortable fabric. Overall, it fit perfectly and the color was beautiful in person and on camera. I got more compliments on this dress than any other before.

Runs small

This was my backup and fortunately my other choice worked because this dress runs very small. Normally I wear a 2 or 4 but I couldn't wear this dress. I would recommend to size up.

Looked good

It's a little tight but not too short. It was a really cute dress thought! I thought I was going to wear this to medical school graduation but ended up wearing it to the dinner the night before and it was perfect. would have been great for both occasions.

Fun ruffled one shoulder with beautiful color!

Fit the sizing perfectly. Little tighter on a 36DD so I didn't end up wearing a bra but it felt fine for the day. The one shoulder was a fun statement and the color of the dress was great! The material of the dress was also very nice but not too thick to the point of being hot in the summer. Perfect dress for a summer wedding or date night.

Beautiful color! Runs small.

Normally I am a 0 and ended ordering a size up. Great date night dress and had a tad bit of stretch to be comfortable. If you have a lot of hips this might be a tight fit. Seems to be designed for the narrow hips. Love the fabric. Thick enough to hide any imperfections, although it is very firm fitting to the stomach.

My favorite rental so far!!!

Wore this dress for my birthday party, and I absolutely loved it. It definitely runs small because I usually wear a 2 or even 0 in some brands, but the 4 fit me perfectly. Wasn't too short or too tight anywhere which is usually an issue being top-heavy. It's also a great quality material with the perfect amount of stretch. Dressed it down with wedges but could totally work for a wedding. I will definitely be renting this dress again!

Favorite Elizabeth & James so far!

I usually have to size up in Elizabeth & James but this one was actually true to size! I also thought the fabric was stretchy enough and very comfortable. It was perfectly thick so I didn't have to wear a bra either. The color was so beautiful and I received compliments all night. Highly recommend this one for summer!

The dress was slightly snug and I wore a size up to feel more comfortable, though I could squeeze in to my normal size.

Very form fitting

I rented this because I had a free birthday dress and we were taking family pictures. I ordered my normal size (a 2) as well as the 4 and boy I'm sure glad I did. Honestly, if I was going to an event and not just standing for some pictures, I would want to wear a 6. It is very tight and form fitting. I have not worn anything from this brand before so this might be the norm for them. But overall a beautiful dress and turned out to be perfect in pictures!! The blue color is simply stunning. Will be renting again, just in a bigger size!

Date night dress

I liked the dress overall. Material is heavy and thicker. I'm fairly tall, but felt comfortable with the length. My waist is 30", hips 42", bust 34C. It was a little snug. I think size 10 would have been perfect. Could dress it up or keep it casual. Loved the color!

Way too small

Unfortunately RTR did not have a good description of the dress and there were only a few reviews. I usually wear a size 6 in dresses but I would say I would have needed at the very least a 10 or 12. The 8 was MUCH too small. Beautiful dress...I wish it would have worked out.

Fit is perfect. Strapless bra is optional, as the top was tight enough and had ruffle coverage.

I absolutely love the colour, shape and overall material of the dress!

I'm usually a zero and fit into the zero - however definitely considered wearing the 2. Runs slightly small in the arm area although I tend to have an athletic/boxey figure.

Pretty but doesn't fit well

This dress looked beautiful on the hanger. I'm 5'6 and 140 pounds athletic body type. I usually wear a 4 but read that this dress runs small so I ordered a 6 and an 8. The eight fit but was extremely tight so unfortunately I returned the dress and did not wear it

RTR Team Review

The color and detail were absolutely beautiful! It fits true to size. I am usually a size 4 and wore a size 6. It felt slightly big so I would recommend wearing your normal size and sizing up for backup as the 6 was do-able as well. It was fitted with no stretch so I would recommend curvier women to size up for full hips.The dress works for any cup size and should be worn with a strapless bra. I loved the detail of the dress and would definitely wear it again.

Summer cocktail party

I agree with the other reviews that it definitely runs a little smaller. I typically wear a size 2 and wore the size 4 and it was still form fitted. I could have probably gone one size further and been even more comfortable. Received tons of compliments on the dress still! Color is gorgeous in person.

Love Elizabeth and James!!!

This dress was amazing! It fit me like a glove, great quality fabric, the color was to die for and the one shoulder ruffle was adorable! The zipper was a little stubborn but I made it work. I got compliments all night long! It was also super comfy to sit/dance/walk in. Also I def recommend wearing spanks because it makes the dress more flattering on. Will def be renting this again!!

The dress is beautiful, very classy. I recieved a lot of compliments.

The dress does run small. I normally wear an 8, but the 8 was too small and the only back-up size was a 12 which was a little big around the bust area.

Super cute but runs quite small. Also if you have a pooch, it might show a bit of it but a pair of Spanx should help.

Loved this dress!

This dress was awesome - the fit is true to size though a little tighter fitting than I originally thought. The cut and color were flattering and looked just like the pictures. The fabric is thick and sturdy and it was comfortable all night. I got so many compliments on this, I wish I owned it!

Amazing dress to dance the night away in for my 30th birthday!

It fit well. I'm really glad I ordered a size up since all of the other reviews said it ran small. I usually wear an 8 and I ordered the 10. It fit like a glove. It was a bit short for my height (5'11), but it was perfect with flats!

Amazing dress, first time I seriously wanted to keep it!

The dress fit perfectly - at 5'8 the length hit at mid thigh and the stomach/butt area were fitted without being too tight. The ruffle on the top is thick enough fabric that I didnt need to wear a strapless bra. The dress didn't ride up at all after hours of dancing, and I wasn't pulling it up or down all night. I LOVED this dress. I typically wear a size 2 (smaller on top), but the 4 fit perfectly.

Understated Sexy Awesomeness!

I rented this for a Birthday date night out and it truly is one of my favorite rentals yet! This is my second time with E&J so I knew to size up. I rented a 6 and an 8 as backup although I'm usually a 2 or 4. The 6 was stunning (I was swimming in the 8 though). There are 3 things I particularly loved about this dress: first, the fabric is wonderfully thick and does not wrinkle even after lots of sitting/standing. Second, its well lined, so even though there is no stretch to it, you can get away with "a lot" (i.e. without shape ware). Finally, RUFFLES! No bra needed either, unless, like me you kind of like a little extra support. Rent this, you will not be disappointed!

Great color!

I loved this dress. It was perfect for a summer wedding, and the details are lovely. Definitely order a size up, because it runs small. I wound up wearing the 8, when I typically wear a 6, and it was still a tad snug. I'll probably order this again given the number of compliments I received. Highly recommended!

Gorgeous dress!

This dress was beautiful! The color is stunning. I'm very glad that I read the reviews before hand and ordered larger sizes. I'm normally a 4 and ended up wearing a size 8. The dress runs very small but once you find the right size it fits very nicely. The body is pretty tight so I recommend spanx to keep everything in place!

Beautiful color & fabric!

The blue is stunning in person and in photos, perfect for a summer wedding on the ocean. Even the stunning bride told me she was obsessed with my dress multiple times! I paired with statement earrings and nude heels. Definitely size UP, I am glad I did. I have a small chest (34B) and did not need to wear a bra, as the top is tight (not uncomfortable at all), but unsure how it would feel for someone with a larger chest than me. Wish I could keep this dress!

Perfect dress for a summer wedding!

I rented this dress for a "dressy casual" attire wedding at an adorable old church venue in Galveston. I wore it with wedges to dress it down a bit but the simplicity of the dress really lends itself to any attire category depending on your accessories. I rented the 2 and the 4 (I normally wear a 2 but heard to size up with Elizabeth & James) and honestly they both fit very well. The 2 was a bit sexier so I opted for the 4 due to the guest list of the specific wedding. (I had also been at a brewery during the day so beer didn't look quite as good in the 2 that day... haha.) I had plenty of room to eat and dance in the 4 though, and I received a ton of compliments! I wound up not wearing a bra as the ruffle did a good job of hiding anything. I would definitely recommend this dress for an easy and versatile option!
