I loved this dress! Beautiful bold solid color and is easy to accessorize. Lots of compliments!
It is so flattering because it is snug in all the right places and flares out for a beautiful silhouette line. I felt great in it! It's a gorgeous color and the cutouts are trendy but not too revealing. The size 2 and 4 were pretty close but I felt the 4 was a little too long. The only issue I had was that the hemline folded over in one spot and hung down a bit lower so I had to keep trying to fold it back a few times. (Maybe ironing it would have helped it stay.)

So thankful we found this dress on RTR!!
We rented this dress for my daughter's 8th grade dance. We had been to every mall, store and online site until it dawned on me to go to RTR. We got this dress for a fraction of the cost if we had bought one and it arrived on time (actually a day early) which was great so she could try it on and with all the accessories and shoes before the big night. The color is stunning! She got so many compliments on it. I was concerned about the side cut outs but they were very tasteful and not too flashy at all. Even her father approved!! ;) We had to go out of town the next day, so I just brought the package with me and found the nearest UPS, walked in and the guy immediately took it from me and I was on my way!! The process couldn't have been easier or more seamless!! I will never forget this option ever again in the future when looking for the perfect dress for future events. One side note - the dress runs extremely small! My daughter normally wears and size 2 and the size 4 was snug, but she got away with it. She probably could have worn a size 6. Regardless we were VERY satisfied with our selection and the whole process in general. Thank you RTR!!!! -A Relieved and Extremely Satisfied Mother

SMALL SMALL SMALL
Size up! I'm usually a size 4 but I sized up to a 6 and even that was too tight where the cutouts were. I guess my ego didn't want me to size up two whole sizes but I should have listened to the other reviewers. Didn't end up wearing.

I wore this to my little brother's high school graduation and the dress was stunning! :)
I absolutely loved this dress! I normally wear a 0 or 00 petite. This dress ran a bit small and so I wore a size 2. It fit perfectly! The only down side was when I was sitting down it was a little snug in the waist, specifically where the cut out part were located. So I was slightly uncomfortable during those times. The dress was very well made, and the color was beautiful :) I would highly recommend this dress, but I would definitely order a size up!

Comfortable and chic
Loved this dress but much more green than in the model photo - honestly the 4 and 6 didn't feel that much different in the waist near the cutouts, but the 4 was tighter on top so I wore the 6. I suggest a strapless bra as well. Overall, great rental!

Fun and flirty
Fits true to size. I ended up wearing a size up only because I didn't want my love handles to squeeze out of the peep holes. Received so many compliments. I loved dancing in this dress! #wedding

This dress was so cute and fun! I wore it to a wedding and loved how it twirled as I danced. The color was something I don't usually wear in a good way. I loved it!

Cute dress
I wore this for a bachelorette party - it was cute. The cut-outs were fun but very tight in the midsection so it kind of looked like flesh was bubbling out - minus points. No bra needed for me. Nice thick material.

Fabulous dress, just a little at the cutouts
This dress was great, but I would definitely go a size up. I usually wear a size 2, but thankfully I read the reviews and went with a 4 as my back up. The cutouts really squeeze you in this dress, which I why k had to wear the 4.

This was the second time I rented from Rent the Runway. I wore this for my spring sports banquet. I absolutely loved this dress! The color was rich and I received compliments on the style as well. Overall, I was satisfied. I would definitely rent this again.

Nice dress, very small
The dress is beautiful, but the hemming on the bottom of the size 2 dress was a little messed up. You would think that for such an expensive dress Elizabeth and James would have had that figured out. It ran a little small. I'm a 0 and just got into the 2. So glad that they let me get the second size for free! Would definitely get this dress again for that amazing price.

Cute & Simple
Size 4 was too big on me and size 2 accentuated my love handles. But I guess that expected in a cut out dress. Really comfortable, danced the whole night.

So many compliments!
I loved this dress. Such a great way to do cutouts- more conservative. The length was perfect. I'm short (5'2") so dresses usually hit my knees. Love that it was shorter. I could have worn the 4 but it wasn't comfortable sitting down. The 6 was perfect and left room to sit and eat and drink. Will prob rent again.

Incredible!
I personally LOVE RTR, so when I first found this dress, I knew it was the one! I wore it for my senior homecoming, and I got so many compliments! I originally ordered the 2 and had the 4 as backup. Both of the dresses fit great, but I went with the 4 to have a little more room instead of the 2 being a bit snug on me. This dress was the perfect length, and the cutouts were AMAZING!! I didn't want to send this dress back! It was absolutely stunning and I totally recommend it!

Recommend ordering two sizes up. The cutouts will cause skin to bulge out if it is too small.

Super fun to try a different look!
I don't always branch out on my style of dresses so this was a little out of my comfort zone. I enjoyed being able to try something different without spending a fortune. The fabric quality was very nice- not what I'm used to with my Target dresses. The only thing about this dress is the side slits cut in a little weird and made me look like I had fat ribs. Perhaps it would've been better with a size up. I would definitely wear it again though!

Should've ordered a size up
I wore this dress for New Years and I definitely got compliments on it. On the plus side this dress is a beautiful canvas for a statement necklace, and the skirt flare will make your legs look great. The cons is that the cutouts are unforgiving, hence I would order a size up in the future. I almost always wear a designer 4, although sometimes a 2 for dresses fitted at the waist. I ordered a 4 and it was on the tight side. I think part of the reason was because I'm tall, and the dress waist hit me nearly an inch above my actual natural waist. My torso isn't that long, so I don't normally have this problem, so be extra wary of the sizing on this dress if you're on the taller side.

Felt great at my best friend's graduation
The fit is a little small in the bust (I'm busty for my size), but had I worn the 6 it would not have hung right around my waist. The dress is a GORGEOUS color and it is very well made (thick material including liner). It was a little short to wear to a semi-formal event (and it was an unseasonably cold day in South Carolina) but I would definitely recommend it for a wedding or cocktail party!

Not my favorite rental
Soooooo small! I normally wear a 4 or 6, and I had to squeeze into an 8. It was so tight that I had to arrange the cutouts to show just the tiniest sliver of skin (otherwise, I had terrible muffin top coming out the sides). A 10 probably would have fit OK in the midsection, but then the length would have been too long. The quality of the dress was nice and I did get compliments, but I definitely did not leave the house feeling my best :-( I am 5'3", and an athletic 135 lbs.

The dress is very cute! Match with a statement piece necklace and you're good to go. Perfect for holiday party. The color of the dress is quite green (unlike in the photo it doesn't really have a shade of blue)

Dress runs small!
I ordered this for my company's holiday party. The dresses (sizes 6 and 8) arrived two days early (yippee!). I'm typically a standard size 6, but I tried on both sizes and the 8 was still hugging too closely at the waist. Since the cutouts are at the waist, the cut of the dress is not forgiving if the sizing is even a tiny bit too small. Sadly I had to return this dress.

Beautiful dress! Super comfortable to dance and move around in all night. Very flattering as well.
I am 5'7, 130 lbs and a size 6. From reviews I heard that this brand can be cut small so I ordered a size 6 and an 8. The size 6 looked great, I felt good in it and ending up wearing that size. The size 8 felt a little roomier however the skirt portion of the dress looked awkward since it was roomier and a little bit bigger on me. Definitely recommend ordering your size and a size up just in case.

More of a forest green than the teal color on the model.
The fit was perfect, but the color was much darker than I expected.

so comfortable and cute!!
I wore this dress for a high school formal dance and it was perfect for the occasion. The fit was perfect for my body type and I got tons of compliments all night. Although the dress was comfy and cute I did have one problem. The lining in both the dresses I received (size 6 & 8) hung longer than the dress. I had to pin it up with safety pins, but after that it was perfect! Would totally recommend for a school dance! or any occasion for that matter!

I went to my homecoming dance in it.
I have a pretty small waist, and both the 0 and 2 fit. I was just more comfortable with the 2 (I could fit a strapless bra with it). I got a lot of compliments on it, and I adored the color. All in all, I probably wouldn't rent it again but I still loved the dress and don't regret renting it. :)

Great dress for the occasion!
I rented this for homecoming this year. I ended up wearing the size 4 because it was a tad longer and it went on pretty easily. I could have worn the size 2 but I didn't want to be too pinched where the cutouts were so I went with the 4. The dress was great for dancing and definitely very comfortable!

Last Minute Homecoming Dress
The dress is a gorgeous material that looks very expensive. The design of the dress is very flattering. I wore a 2 and I have a 27 inch waist so it was a little tight. I recommend picking a size that will fit your waist since the material is not very forgiving. The length is perfect for dancing and the color looks great in photos. I've rented this dress twice and both have been a success.

Girls Trip
I rented this dress for a Vegas trip. I didn't want the stereotypical clingy black dress since my stomach is my least favorite part of my body. I was surprised how much I loved this dress because I thought the cut outs would make my fat pop out even more but I didn't notice that. It does run a little tight around the mid section but up top it fit perfectly. I'm 5' 3" and 160 lbs for reference. The 10 was perfect uptop (34D) but definitely a little snug in the stomach area. Overall I would recommend this dress!

fun and flirty dress!
Wore this dress to my rehearsal dinner. Like others have mentioned, size up. The side 6 fit well for my except the cutouts were still very tight and squeezed my ribcage, which I would say is on the smaller side. Overall, a really cute dress.

I want to buy this dress!!
I LOVED this dress! The color, the fabric, the shape- just perfect. I wore this to an October wedding and pairing it with black tights made it feel a little more appropriate and warmed it up a bit. I will say, the waist is very narrow. I'm normally a 2-4 and could have probably worn the 6 (even though the 4 worked out) I didn't have to wear a bra, but you could probably wear one with a racer back. I'll definitely rent this again!

Wasn't my favorite
I use RTR all the time and I've loved every dress. Of all the dresses I've rented, this was my least favorite. I didn't hate it, but for once I didn't receive any compliments on it. I loved the fit from the waist up. I love Elizabeth and James dresses and the material. Didn't have to wear a bra. The part I didn't like was the lower half. It wasn't the flowy material that laid flat -- it curved up at the bottom. I tried ironing it down, but that didn't work. I started to think it was the way the inside lining was sewn that made it pucker. I was going to return this and get a new dress, but I didn't have time because the wedding was out of town.
