Nice dress, arrived dirty

The dress is simple and understated. Very pretty with a statement necklace. You may want to wear shapewear underneath as it's quite form fitting. I usually wear 6 but the 6R was too small. The 8R was really dirty at the hem (and a few inches up) so I had to have it dry cleaned in 1 day to travel with it the next day to a wedding. Disappointed with RTR service for the first time. Also, the garment bag didn't arrive with the zip tie to seal it when returning the dresses.

Gorgeous, feminine and classy dress, good material and received many compliments!

I rented this dress for a gala where there were religious leaders in my community, so I needed something classy and feminine. The material is great, however it does show everything through, so if you're needing to wear compression garments, go a size up! The back is lovely as well! It's perfect for a conservative event, given the high neckline and the back isn't low either! Great rental and loved the color!

I wore this to my Prom! It fit perfectly and I received lots of compliments.

I wore this dress in a 4L for my Junior year Prom! It fit me perfectly and I received compliments all night!! I ordered a 4L and a 6L, and ended up wearing the 4L because it fit me a little better. I'm 5'7 and I ordered the long version only because I was wearing tall heels. If you are around 5'7 and don't plan on wearing tall heels, go with the regular length! With my tall heels the dress was still long, so I would only suggest ordering the long version if you are pretty tall. The color was perfect for my skin color and the material was stretchy and very comfortable. This dress is very classy, comfortable, and beautiful!! I will definitely be renting from this website again :)

Kerry Washington told me she loved this dress. Mic drop.

I adored this dress. Very chic - but totally stands out from all black at formal affairs. It is form fitting, but in a sleek way. I'm 5"7 and wore with 3 inch heels and it just hit the floor. The size 4 (125 lbs) was snug, but it felt more like comfy shape wear. Tons of compliments. Loved loved loved it.

Beautiful back!

I rented this dress for my prom, BEST decision ever. Despite receiving this dress 3 hours before prom, everything was perfect. The color was beautiful and the style was elegant and classy. The bow is beautiful and adds a feminine touch. I recommend this dress to everyone however, a size up is necessary, as Elizabeth and James runs small.

Amazing and Classy Gown

Some say that Elizabeth and James runs a little small but I thought it to be very true to size. It's an extremely flattering and thick-lined form fitting dress, however quite cool and breathable. the fabric is amazing! I wore it to my senior prom and have never gotten so many compliments! I wore 3 inch heels and it was the perfect length. The bow on the back is a great touch and the slit made it very movable and easy to dance in. Will definitely rent again. Such a classy, elegant piece. Rent rent rent it!!!

Loved this dress!

I rented this dress for a military event and it was perfect! I ordered a size 2R and 4R. The 2R fit, but it was a little snug and there was a mark on the front so I wore the 4R which fit great too! I'm about 5'5 and I wore 3 inch heels, which worked perfectly for the length. I received so many compliments on this dress. It's elegant and so, so beautiful. I hope I have an excuse in the future to rent it again!

Great dress, but bow is difficult to work with!

Loved the dress but it ended up being too formal for the event I needed to wear it to, I exchanged it for something else. The only reason I am giving four stars is because of the bow in the back. The material was very thick and it was hard to tie a nice bow. Plus, once a bow was tied, it was hard to keep it together.

Gorgeous

I'm 5"8 about 140lbs I needed the size 6R.. I'm glad I read the reviews & didn't get a long.. If I had a better summer diet I may have fit in the 4 so always get the size up from what you normally wear too. The dress was comfortable but I had some issues with the hooks.. Give 20 minutes to get on & make sure you have a friend that knows how to tie a bow... My boyfriend couldn't figure it out...

This dress was absolutely lovely my date loved it. It is simple yet very elegant .

I totally felt like a princess in this dress. It was body hugging yet a bit stretchy. I would say it's very true to size. The only con about this dress is that when it was delivered it was a bit wrinkled. Other then that it was truly perfect and worth the money. Thank you RTR

Loved this dress! Lots of compliments

I loved this dress. I rented a 2R and a 4R. The 2R fit perfectly just a bit long, which was no big deal. I am just under 5'6 and wore three inch heels. Check out my Insta for more pics @fallon_gray. My first experience with RTR was great and the renting process was so easy! I rented a dress for the next wedding I will be attending the next day. I love that they give you a second size option to eliminate the "what if it doesn't fit" stress. I received a lot of compliments and highly recommend this dress and RTR.

The Back of this dress! Classy, yet sexy! So many compliments. It fit perfectly!

I'm right under 5'4. Wear a 32D and weigh 110/12 pounds. I typically wear a 0 or 2 in a dress. The 0 was a bit snug. It zipped but looked too tight. The 2 fit just fine and the length was great with 4" heels. I would definitely recommend going with the larger of the 2 sizes you typically wear. I highly recommend this dress. Pictures turned out great too! :)

Loved this dress!

This dress was perfect! The length was perfect with a high heel. The only hard part was with the open back you wouldnt be able to wear a full bra. Other than that it was the perfect dress!

I loved the simplicity but still having the wow factor on the backside.

This dress was only a tad bit small at the chest area but my back up size, 6R, was too big. So I just wore the 4R and was very pleased with the dress

Love this dress!

Fit perfectly got so many compliments. The fabric doesn't have a lot of give but fits like a glove and is so flattering. Did not wear a bra just petals and fabric was thick enough to conceal. Would most definitely rent again! ( 5'10 and 134 lbs.) the long was plenty long enough and I wore only a small heel

Perfect backup!!!

Thank goodness for backups! The original dress didn't fit and was all wrong. But this simple number is everything! It's perfect for a classic elegant look. I wore 4 inch heels and was able to dance the night away with no problems. I would rent this dress again!

Elegant!

This dress is beautiful and I received many compliments throughout the night! The hook/clasp at the top for the bow was a little tricky. Pretty much every time I moved the clasp would undo, but the hooks stayed in place so it wasn't that bad or noticeable during the night. Overall the fit was great, it was a little tight in the rib cage area. I'm 5'4" and wore about 3-4 in heels and the dress came perfectly to the floor. It was easy to dance and move in.

Stunning in every way!

The dress and is absolutely stunning. The fabric is thick, the back is incredible and it fits in all the right places. It definitely runs long! I'm 5'9" and wore 3" heels and the 4L was way too long. Wish I had ordered a 4R. The small snap at the back that holds the bow up did come unsnapped quite a bit, but when I made the bow less top heavy it seemed to help. This dress is a statement maker and I loved it!

I rented this Dress for my junior prom

I rented this for my junior prom and I loved it ! For the most part . It wasn't as tight as I wanted it to be so it does run large . And the back is cut out so it gives you room to move. Lastly the back out was beautiful but the snap to keep it in place kept Undoing itself . But overall I loved it and I would so rent from here again .

Perfect, unique dress

The dress was slightly shorter than I would have hoped when I wore my heals, but the dress fit perfectly in all other ways. It was the most unique yet gorgeous dress at prom and I received many compliments from parents of people at the prom and also from my peers.

Lovely dress!

Overall the gown was lovely and fit like a glove! Although I did not receive the size that I wanted I received a 4L in return which was too long even with my 4.5 inch heels! If you are below 5'7 I definitely suggest that you should go with the 4R. This dress was easy to dance with and the open back was extremely amazing!

This dress was simple and elegant, I felt like a million bucks

aside from my dress not coming in with the bow that's suppose to be on top... I did love this dress! It was simple and very elegant. The dress runs small so size up, I'm a usual 4 and I had to wear a 6. This dress was great quality, a beautiful color, and flattered my body in all the right places.

The dress fit true to size; I absolutely loved it. Fitted to body but can still dance and is comfy

I wore this dress to my Junior prom and I felt very classy. I loved the dress online and was worried it wouldn't look good on me because I obviously do not have the same body type as all the models on the site. However, the dress fit perfectly true to size and I was so happy with how fitted it was while still allowing me to dance a lot. Although it is fitted to your body, the thick fabric makes it very smooth and flattering

Fairytale

I rented this dress for my surprise courthouse wedding. Wedding planning was stressing me out to the max, so we decided to ditch everyone and their expectations and do a surprise courthouse wedding. We hired a photographer and made an appointment. We bought nothing and rented everything and the dress was the perfect touch. I am tall and it still touched the floor. It added the perfect touch of elegance needed to make my courthouse wedding the best day ever.

I had my heart set on this dress

I ordered this dress a size up as suggested in other reviews. I rented a size 6 without a back up size, so I was a little worried about it fitting but it was perfect for my big bottom! I am a little smaller in the waist so in the photo you can see the fabric bunch up a little, but it didn't bother me enough to not wear it. I am 5'4 so this dress was on the longer side, so wearing 3" heels was a requirement.

Perfect for Desert Engagement Pics

Loved this dress! Super flattering and classy. The color is a very soft pink/ blush. I wore it for engagement pics and then we went to a fancy date night dinner afterwards because why not!? Got so many compliments! Only negative was that the button to hold the bow on the back was broken so my fiancée used a safety pin to secure it. Fabric doesn't have much stretch so I wore the bigger size so it fit on my hips, which made it a smidge big in the chest. First world problems. Overall great dress.

Great quality dress but no bow....

This dress was awesome. I am 140 and 5'7 and the 6R was perfect. I loved the fit and the cut. It was a little tight but it was still really comfortable! The only downside to it was that the bow in the picture didn't come with the dress. This was my back up dress but I wore it instead! Definitely very classy for a military function!

The dress runs a little small, normally Im a size 6 but the 8 fit beautifully! The dress was very comfortable and easy to dress in. The only problem was the clasp in the back kept coming undone but overall was a perfect dress.

Stunning fit

Dress ran small, but fit like a glove and was flattering in all the right places. Actually chose to wear the dress without the bow in the back, it was too much of a pain to make look 'perfect' and it honestly looked better without it!! Also worn with 3 inch heels and the length was perfect. It was also very comfortable for several hours. Got lots of compliments- highly recommend!!

Runs small- I usually wear a 2 but the 4 fit better. I'm 5'11" and definitely needed the long, and didn't wear heels. The back isn't pictured in this photo but it was my favorite part of the dress.

Perfect color- simple yet elegant

This dress was everything I was looking for as I was a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding. The dress was form fitting to show off my curves, yet had plenty of stretch to it so I was able to dance all night. I am a 36DD and it was definitely snug around the bust area. Looked fine from the front, but made it looks like I had a bit of back fat :/ Would definitely recommend this dress to others who are less busty!

Fits like a glove!

The overall body fit was amazing! Only thing I hated had to do with tying the bow in the back. I felt the bow once tied was too heavy for the clasp and button it needed to be attached to so it kept falling off the clasp.
