Can't say anything negative about this dress!
Meant to wear this dress to a rehearsal dinner, but messed up the dates and ended up having to find a use for it before it needed to go back. Wore it on a dinner date with my fiancé and it was perfect! I wore the size 2 - probably could have gotten away with the 0, but the chest/rib area was looser and more comfortable in a 2. The fabric, cut, and length were perfect! Not too long for someone who is short like me! Would definitely re-rent and recommend to others!

Perfect dress for a summer wedding - I received so many compliments!
I loved this dress! It was perfect for a summer wedding. I accessorized with a statement necklace, which looked great with the dress's neckline. It fits true to size, and the fabric is a nice, thicker material that has a little stretch to it. The color is a beautiful, bright pale yellow. I would definitely recommend this dress, and would love to rent it again!

The bright color
The dress fit exactly as I thought. It was a little on the short side as I am 6'0" however it was not too short to wear to a graduation ceremony. The color was brighter than it looked online but it was perfect for the summer. It would be tighter if I had a bigger bust but I don't so it fit perfectly. Would recommend for a graduation

I received compliments all night long.
I received compliments all night long, the yellow is perfect. Not overwhelmingly bright or an "easter"pastel. If you want to stand out this is he dress for you. Fits true to size, the fabric is thick so it helps in trouble zones. Great to dance in.

Super comfy and light. Very fun and flirty
This dress was great. Very comfortable. I had to size up to add length(though it wasn't much). I have super long legs. It was super breezy the day I wore it, so beware. It will flip up on you! Great dress, great material. Very nice!

Received many compliments on the dress!
The size 4 fit good, however, a size 2 would have fit better. It felt a bit loose around the bust area. Fits very true to size.

I DONUT know what I would have done without this dress!
The color pops, and the fabric is a fantastic quality with just enough give. From top to bottom I found the cut and fit to be very flattering and comfortable, even for someone with broader shoulders and no curves. Although it ran on the shorter side, this was only troublesome when sitting and getting in and out of the car. Other than that, I had no problems moving around. Overall, an effortless and dependable choice, definitely worth renting!

Derby Sunshine
This dress was perfect for a daytime party. I wore it to a derby party. It was cheerful and comfortable. I did feel it ran a little small in the chest/shoulders. I usually wear a size 0 and was glad I had the back up size of a 2 because the 0 gave me armpit fat - and you can't have that! Haha.

Stand-Out Dress
This dress is GORGEOUS in person. The fabric is nice and thick and I didn't need to wear a bra. I received compliments all afternoon while at a Derby party. Couldn't be happier and would definitely rent again.

Beach wedding success!
I rented this for a friend's wedding on the beach. The material of the dress is nice and thick so it will not blow up if there is a guest of wind. The color is more neon which other reviews stated but looks beautiful against tan skin. This dress was effortless and comfortable and I'm so happy I rented it

Perfect for my Derby Night
I needed a dress for a 'Night at the Races' fundraising event. This was the exact style I was looking for and it had good reviews! I did order a size 2 and 4. When I got my dresses I only got the size 2 bc the other one wasn't able to ship. Luckily the size 2 fit perfect (phew) they sent me 2 others dresses which I didn't really like at all and they were size 4's and too loose. The one I wore was good quality and I will look for more dresses by this designer. The material was thicker than I expected which was nice. I received so many compliments on my dress :)

The color and neckline was what made the dress so special and unique!
Wish the waist line would have been a tad tighter but with a padded strapless bra, I made due! Color was bright and looked great with a tan. Minimal accessories needed with this one! Get some hot high stilettos and get on the dance floor!

fun dress!
Got this dress for Keeneland horse race and it was perfect! I got a lot of compliments on it. It was a bit brighter than what I thought it was going to be, but it was fine. This designer in general runs small- the size 4 fit perfectly. I also wore it was Easter church and again was perfect for the occasion.

Fit true to size. I'm a D cup and wear between a 4 and 6 but the 6 fit better in the bust. Its a little short, but was a fun dress and easy to accessorize.

Bright, fun, flirty dress to warm up my engagement shoot on a brisk winter day!
I've found this designer runs small, so I went a size up from my usual 6 to and it fit perfectly. The cut was super flattering, and the pale yellow color lit up all my professional photos exactly how I wanted them. Recommend this dress for a spring fling, wedding or night out.

Cute dress and a pretty color!
This was a pretty dress and the fabric is thicker than I would have expected. It runs short (I'm 5'2 and it was short) so avoid breezes and dropping your things. Super cute though and I would recommend it!

Stand out dress
This dress runs a bit small. I normally wear a 2 or a 4.. depending on the designer. I went with the 4 on this one. The 2 was extremely tight in the chest. The color is more of a lime green then a pastel yellow in my opinion. Still a very pretty color. Wore it to a Kentucky Derby themed charity event. It was perfect for the occasion.

Wow this yellow dress made a statement!
I wore this dress to a charity event and dress code was Cape Code. I received tons and compliments and loved that I was the only one in yellow. The Kendra Scott necklace I rented was the perfect statement piece. Fit was true to size. Can't wait to rent agin!

Not my favorite - but a beautiful dress on the hanger!
Great color, fabric and well made overall - it just didn't work on me. I think the skirt was a little too billowy.

Perfect color for spring!
Love this dress! Previously rented a similar style in light blue for another wedding. Elizabeth and James uses the best fabric! It is thicker and heavier than it appears and has a little bit of stretch so it hugs your body perfectly! & the color is amazing! It looks different depending on the lighting, but it gives you a nice looking tan whether you have one or not.

Awkward fit. Probably best for straight and narrow bodies
Loved the color and material. Top cut was cute. The length and hit of the waist was awkward. The dress felt weird on and photographed terribly. Not for curvy women.

Cute Neckline, but a bit Tight Up Top
Material was heavier than I expected. Loved the color, cute skirt and neckline. I was a bit smooshed in the top, and I only wear a B cup. but I think it still looked good.

Another winner by Elizabeth and James. Their dresses are made of high quality fabric and fit great. I received many compliments on the color especially under the dance floor lights where it practically glowed!

I loved the fit and flare aspect of the dress! The neckline was a little bit strange to me (especially with bathing suit tan lines) but overall I really liked it.

Great for a summer wedding! I loved the cut of the top and the color. I would recommend ordering a size up for your back up because it is very fitted in the chest and a little short. Great dress!

Cute cut and great fabric
The only reason I gave this dress a 4 is because it was really short. But if you are okay with that than it is perfect! The fabric is awesome and it is the perfect shade of yellow.

I wore this to an outdoor wedding.
Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate so I had to wear a jacket over this dress the entire time. It was my favorite dress i have rented thus far! It was so pretty, the color is light yellow, it fit so well on me. I wore a strapless bra and it stayed the entire night.

Love love this dress!
I wore this dress at a rehearsal dinner for a formal wedding. I LOVED it! The color is kind of a neon yellow/green in person. Kind of like a tennis ball. Surprisingly pretty for such a weird color. The neckline adds a little interest to a simple, clean, but still flirty look. I got so many compliments. Also, it fits like other Elizabeth and James dresses, which is tight and non-stretchy but generally true to size. If you have bigger than a mid-sized bust, you're gonna want to size up.

Fit like a glove to my frame... small on top and wider on the bottom.

This dress unlike any others that guests were wearing. It was bright and unique!
The fit was true to size. I loved that the dress was bright. I wore it for a summer wedding and it was so easy to find accessories to enhance the beauty of this dress. No one else at the wedding was wearing anything similar to it and I loved that!

Pretty dress, different fit
I wore this dress to a late September wedding. I was hoping it would be warmer, but fall had arrived in Philadelphia. The dress was fun to dance in as it twirled. The fit was a little weird though. The size 0 fit better up top but was very short on me. The size 2 was loose up top and puckered but gave me the length I needed. The top was just a little awkward but was fine. I rent Elizabeth & James a lot and this dress was fine... Not my fave but not the least fave. It was just fine.
