Great color and cut!
This dress is very flattering! I loved how it looked standing however not the best dress if you are planning on sitting most of the evening. It did run slightly on the smaller side. I am 5'8 36B I normally wear a size 8 but opted for the size 10. I wore this for a bachelorette in Miami and it fit in perfectly!

Simple & perfect
Elizabeth and James dresses have a thicker fabric that keeps you all tucked in in the most comfortable way. This dress was so great, didn't ride up, slit (sorry it's covered in the picture) shows just the right amount of skin and the color was just the right amount of girly. I'm usually a 4 but felt more comfortable in the 6, not too short in my opinion. Highly recommend this and every E&J dress!

Classy cutout dress!
This dress was super fun to wear. It was a bit snug around the rib cage but not uncomfortable. I loved the cut on the bottom of the dress...very flattering. The dress had the tendency to ride up, so just be aware so you don't show anything underneath! Overall, really liked the look of the dress.

Color was great. Fit didn't work.
The color of this dress was great for the season; pale pink and slightly more pink than I expected, which was a positive. I have a petite build (5'3, 105) and large chest, which unfortunately didn't work with this particular dress. I was swimming in the size 4.

My favorite RTR rental of all time!
I rented this dress for a night out in Miami. It was classy enough for a nice dinner and sexy enough to wear out dancing. I'm not usually a fan of pink, but this blush tone was bright and brought out my fresh tan. I loved how fitted it was but it was a bit tight at the midsection cut-out. I would size up for your backup. I paired this dress with nude heels and some gold earrings. I wish I owned this dress!!

Stylist Review!
Another great bodycon dress by Elizabeth and James! The Blush Aiala Dress has a bit of stretch to it, but I definitely suggest sizing up for comfort. The side cutout is a playful detail that is still very much appropriate for dinner. I'm 5'8" and this hit me about mid-thigh. Pair it with a fun statement necklace and strappy heels. Can't wear to rent this for a night out!

Runs VERY small
I was sent this dress as the second size in the one I was being sent wasn't available. I am usually a four and this six was tiny!! Even if I could fit into it, it wouldn't have been appropriate for the bridal luncheon I was attending. The dress also seemed to hug and gap at all the wrong places. I think this would work best on someone less curvy.

Perfect dress!
The material hugged my body in all the right places. The dress wasn't too revealing, yet had just the right amount of sexiness I was looking for. Love Elizabeth & James dresses, I will definitely be ordering more!

Love Elizabeth & James, but runs small
This dress is beautiful and fun and so unique. I love E&J but per usual, it runs small and has little to NO stretch. If you have a big bust, I would size up. I usually wear a 2, but with Elizabeth and James I wear a 4, and I'm wishing I would have gotten the 6 for this particular dress due to the lack of give in the bust area. It is also pretty short when you sit down, so be careful with that. Otherwise, the color is fun, the cut is sexy and fun and the material is thick and very high fashion style.

I didn't end up wearing this because I preferred my other dress but plan to rent this again. It's a bit challenging to move around in though.

Love!
Loved this dress! Perfect for a night out in NYC, would absolutely rent again for a wedding or special event! I'm normally a 6 across the board but the waist was so tight with no give the 8 fit way better. Quality was amazing, and thick material hid any lines and never rode up at all!

Gorgeous but tight!
The color and material are lovely! I ended up not being able to wear this out because it was too cold but would have loved to. It is very tight around the waist area as you can see in the picture - I also have a big booty so that could have been the issue. I would not have felt comfortable eating a lot in a dress that form-fitting. If you have the body for this dress, I highly recommend it - just be aware that you will not be concealing anything ha:)

Cute but nothing fantastic
I love the color of the dress and the cut out- the cut out was low enough where I didn't have to worry about my bra showing. However I feel like it wasn't flattering for me. It squished my chest and has a little extra fabric around the lower abdomen.... not the best combo

Classy & Cute
RTR was running a special, 3 dresses for the price of one. I originally got this dress for myself, but it didn't fit me right. Too loose up top, but very snug on the bottom. Thankfully it did fit my friend great (she has a slightly larger bust than I do, and a slightly smaller lower half), so she ended up wearing this and I wore one of the other two options! It looked great on her and she received a ton of compliments!

It was a bit snug and I normally wear an 8, but it was manageable and I enjoyed wearing it.

I wore this dress to a sorority formal, it was a fun event but I picked the wrong dress.
Attention hourglass ladies: do not rent this dress. I don't consider myself overweight, but I felt like a plus-size Jackie Kennedy in this dress. I wear a size 4/6, but the size 8 was too tight. I couldn't bend down or sit comfortably, and the sexy cut-out was nowhere to be seen unless I constantly pulled the dress down. The material is not stretchy, therefore does not work with full hips/bosom. The color accentuated my stomach which was unflattering because the cutout made it impossible to wear Spanx (or even spandex shorts for that matter). If you do decide to rent, rent two sizes up!

Very cute!
I wore this to a wedding on my birthday and loved it!! The top was a big! but i have a big butt and the bottom was a tad tight. But over all i loved it so many people loved it! So if you have a butt get a size bigger than what you would normally wear because it is tight.

Classy and fun! Perfect for my graduation party
I ordered a size 0 and 2 after reading reviews. I usually wear a size 0 in most dresses (I'm 5'3" 113 lbs 34B with an athletic build and narrow hips). The 0 was extremely tight but the 2 fit perfectly. The dress has a little bit of a stretch to it, but not much! There was definitely space at the top for someone with a slightly larger chest than mine. The length was perfect for a more formal affair, as it wasn't very short. I received so many compliments on this dress and would recommend to anyone!

Definitely runs small and the fabric is not very flexible, I typically wear a size 0/2 but thought the 4 was more comfortable. Overall a gorgeous dress though!

Nice quality
Rented this item and it's less for a woman with curves tan I thought. Not forgiving but a nice quality fabric. I rented my typical size and it barley zipped and was shorter than expected. I'm 5"6 36DDD and average build rarely have issues fitting things off the rack. I'd rent again but just size up

Gorgeous, comfortable dress!
This dress was perfect for me for an engagement party I attended. Fits VERY small, usually a size 6 but I wore a 10 in this dress. 150lbs, 5,4'', bust 32B. I had ordered a 6 and 8... neither fit, they overnighted a 10 to me so I could have it in time for the event. Great customer service!!

Perfect party dress for my Maid of Honor to wear at my Charleston bachelorette party!
This dress is so fun and different and the pale pink color looks amazing! My sister ended up wearing it out one night of my bachelorette party in Charleston and loved the side cut-out! It was a fun party dress that wasn't super trashy, perfect for Charleston. I want to rent it again so I can wear it somewhere! My sister is taller than me (6'1") and the 8 was a little tight for her (she said a 10 would have been ideal) but it definitely fits true to size and the thick fabric is very forgiving.

I wore this for a rainy graduation day.
This dress was a big hit! I felt like I was kind of between sizes (I'm usually a 0, got the 2 as a backup size, ended up wearing the 0) but it was cute and pretty comfortable. The zero was snug in some places but the 2 was boxy in the shoulders and cutout Would recommend for bachelorette parties or even clubbing.

Classy but sexy.
I got lots of compliments on this dress. It did ride up when I walked so I felt like I was constantly pulling it down. And it has very little stretch to the facbric, so even though the fit wasn't too tight on the top, it was very restrictive for dancing and putting your arms/hands up. Overall the look of the dress was great!

Very comfortable and sexy. I ended up wearing a 4 instead of a 2 because the top is small if I wore a padded bra, I'm a 34C. I would rent this again!

Definitely a sophisticated, sharp look that stands out among boring dresses this season!
This dress runs SMALL. The reviews are true, order two sizes up than you normally wear. I'm usually a 2 and the 4 I could not get over my bottom! The 6 did work but even then it was still tight but the 8 probably would've been too loose on the top. The cut out gives it just the right amount of edge and it is comfy! Definitely gives a little stretch the longer you wear it. I wore a regular nude bra, no problems. Super cute, I loved wearing it and the light pink color you can dress it up for daytime or nighttime! I wore it to a benefit at an art gallery.

WAY too short!
Maybe this is a sign that I've hit my late twenties... But this dress is too short! The length is fine everywhere except the middle where the two sides overlap. I'm not particularly tall - 5'7", but I definitely felt uncomfortable wearing it. Even my husband said it was really short (not something he typically would say!). If you are shorter, I'm sure this could work. It's a cute dress and I wish I could have worn it, but it was a total no-go!

Adorable, but way too small!
This dress was great, in theory, but I ordered an 8 (I'm usually a 6 or an 8), and it should have been labeled a 2 or a 4! This dress will just not work for someone who has a any sort of booty or hips. Sad, because it's so, so cute!

It's very tight so be prepared for that. I wore this dress for a friend's bachelorette party and got so many compliments. Didn't want to send it back!
