LBD!
This was the perfect little black dress for my sister's bachelorette party! The low and open neckline, cutout details, and flirty length made it the perfect marriage of sweet and sexy. The fit was true to size and I would definitely recommend it for smaller bust sizes!

Super cute, straps are a bit long
Loved this dress! It was both super cute and sweet with just enough sex appeal to keep it from looking juvenile I'm quite petite, and I noticed that the straps were a bit longer and looser than would have been ideal, but it worked

Wore to a nice steak dinner for BF's bday - adorable but wouldn't recommend for sitting and eating!
I rented this with Unlimited and handy had an excuse to wear it until my boyfriend's birthday came around and we had reservation at a fancy steakhouse for dinner. The dress is good quality and a really adorable cut. However, I am a 32DD, and it was a little bit much on the cleavage, especially since I couldn't wear a bra due to the cutouts and the neckline. I also wouldn't recommend wearing if you plan to chow down on steak!! It was a bit tight through the middle cutouts / waistline.

Cute but small...for me
I made the mistake of going down a size thinking it would fit fine since it flares out. Unfortunately I couldn't zip it up. However, if you get the right size it's a great dress and feels great!

Cute party dress
This dress was very cute and flirty. Great quality and fun to wear. Definitely more cleavage than I'd expected, though.

I love this dress!
The fit is perfect! The fabric is so nice and lined on the inside. The construction of the dress is done very well and the pleating on the bottom of the dress is not overdone, adds a flirtyness. The straps are a little thick for my liking and can make me look a little topheavy due to my bust size. I personally like thinner straps to have a more feminine look but this dress fits so well I don't care about the straps. Wore on an anniversary dinner date.

Fun and sexy dress
Loved this dress! The top was tight enough that I did not need to wear a bra. I have a large chest, so I was nervous I might have an accidental slip, but all was well! I got so many compliments and it was very comfortable.

Sexy, sweet, and sassy little number!
This dress fit like a glove. The thick fabric held everything in place, but wasn't hot. It has a great stretch so I could move around, and was so fun to dance in with the little fit and flare skirt!

Boobilicious
I wore this for a friend's bachelorette party. I'm on the far left in the picture. It is very cute and flowy at the bottom and super tight at the top. I had just had a baby two months ago, so I knew my boobs would be bigger so I went up two sizes to compensate, but alas it was not enough. My boobs were still popping out, but since I used it for a bachelorette party it worked out. Love the small cut outs for detail.

Vegas LBD
I loved the thick fabric that this dress was made of, and the way it moved when I walked! Unfortunately the dress fit slightly too large. I ordered a 4 and 6 based off the reviews of E&J dresses fitting small. A size 2 would have for perfect. I really like that it hid some of my belly bloat from the previous evening! Such a cute LBD!

Cute and comfy!
I knew it would be short on me, but perfect for a date with hubby! The ladder trim detail is super cute, and the dress has a little bit of stretch that made it fit perfectly. I wore without a bra, as material is a bit thicker.

Cute for Bachelorette Party!
This was perfect as a little black dress for a bachelorette party weekend. Perfect for girls with hips that don't like tight dresses in that area. I thought it complimented my body type perfectly. Only thing was that it was very tight in the chest. I wasn't even wearing a bra and still thought it was tight. It was comfortable when standing up but when sitting for a while the torso was pretty tight. So not the most comfortable but still, got lots of compliments and felt pretty!

Perfect little black dress
This dress is super cute and flirty ! The flare skirt is very flattering on the waist and the top is tight enough that I didn't need to wear a bra. The material is thick which makes it dressier. Would rent again

So flattering!
I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner. I would say it's on the smaller end of the size spectrum, but still fit. A little short, and tight in the rib and boob area. D cups be warned. Otherwise I loved it and it would rent again in a heartbeat!

Short for tall girls!
Great quality dress and super sexy yet simple. This was obviously very fitted throughout chest and waist, the 4 was snugger than I like, I could have sized up. I opted not to wear this for my date mostly because of the length. I'm 5'8 and with a curvier backside, this fell shorter than I'm comfortable with.

Great LBD- was a little tight!
I wore the 4 bc it was the only size available BUT I def would have rather had the 6. If it wasn't black I don't think I could have gotten away with how snug it was. I'm usually a 4 in everything however I think Elizabeth and James runs smaller than other brands. I always size up and would have been perfect if I had!

I loved this dress. The top was a little tight so I would have ordered the 4 next time. But other than that it was perfect.

Cute dress with flouncy skirt
Very cute black dress with unique elements like the flare on the skirt and the see through trim. Tight across the bust so I had to size up. No bra required but I did wear the coverup stickies suggested by RTR which worked well. I have a short torso so the straps were a little loose but not enough so that they would fall. Would rent again!

Perfect LBD
This dress was very comfy but definitely runs small. I usually wear a size 0-2 but I ended up wearing a 4. Alsoooo you can't really wear a normal bra with it but that wasn't really a problem for me. Overall, great dress!

Cute style, many compliments
I liked the dress and received many compliments. Fabric is really nice and thick. It was good length for being very short (5'0) but probably not as flattering being small chested. The straps are pretty long, so neck line plunges quite a bit. Overall though it was a fun style to wear to an outdoor wedding we attended.

Great dress. Flattering & fun
I'm 5'2 and the dress ended about mid-thigh. It was a good length for it to look cute but not too short and not too long (usually an issue for me). The top was super flattering, worn with long earrings. The fit was true to size.

Adorable! Loved this dress!
Not only is this super comfortable, but it is VERY cute! I may actually buy it for my closet. I wore it for a wedding and got a ton of compliments. The straps are thick enough that I was able to wear a normal bra with it, which was great as my strapless tend to fall down. I just used some fashion tape to make sure they stayed together. I'm normally a 4, but this designer usually cuts small and the 6 was perfect! It is a short dress. Came about 6" above my knee.

Very flattering!
Such a great dress and extremely flattering. It was the perfect length, as I'm only 5'1" and it's usually hard to find dresses that I don't need to get hemmed. Only concern was the top. They say theres plenty of room in the bust but even in the 8 I found myself being worried the zipper was gonna pop open when I sat down because it was very tight in that area. Otherwise, fantastic dress!

The dress runs on the smaller side so it was a little on the tight side but I still loved it for this event.

Beautiful dress. Super classy.
This dress does run small as the reviews say. I wanted to order a size 8 in the dress; however, it was unavailable. I decided to go for the 6 and wished for the best. The 6 was difficult to zip (partially because the zipper was very stiff) however it did look really great. Once the dress zipped it did not even feel tight it was just difficult to get on.

If you are bigger chested, it will be a little tight at the top!

Perfect LBD!
I wore this to my sorority's winter formal. Loved the dress! Definitely runs a bit small- the 4 wasn't available so I couldn't try it on, but the 6 fit well (I usually wear a 4). Very flattering and classy. I could even wear a regular bra with it which was a plus. A perfect LBD!

Fun little dress
This dress is very cute and fun to wear. It's tighter in the bust area than other dresses from the same designer I've rented in the past. I'm a 34c, usually wear size 4, wore this dress in a 6.

LOVED this dress! I didn't want to give it back! I ordered a 4 and a 6. The 4 was a too tight in my bust area. The 6 fit like a glove! Perfect length for my 5'8" height, the perfect amount of legs! I would highly recommend this dress for any girl!

It fit but was not comfortable enough to sit down and eat a special dinner :(
