Fun dress!
I just barely squeezed into the 8, because the fabric really has no give but it was still a cute and in dress. I was worried about my flab hanging out of the cut outs but it wasn't an issue. The button is really roomy and fun to dance in, although it might be a little short for taller girls.

Perfect for dancing the night away!
Wore this for my 25th birthday and couldn't ask for anything more in a party dress. Ended up having to use backup size 2 as 0 was a little tight; after sizing-up though, it was comfortable enough to dance and dance until the clubs closed, and still flexible enough to chow down on tacos afterward! Many compliments and made my evening all the more unforgettable. (Necklace & earrings also from RTR)

Perfect Fit
I go between a 2 and 4 in dresses. With this dress I went with a 4 because the zipper sticks and the cut outs would not be flattering if the dress is too tight. Plenty of compliments all night! Perfect for a casual wedding rehearsal.

Homecoming dress was awesome!
My daughter wore this to a homecoming dance. She's 5'5, 120, 32D. Wore 6. We went with the size up as it was a tight fit. She absolutely loved it tho!!! Perfect for a 15.5 year old. She felt beautiful while not trying to look older than she is.

Love the color!!
Runs small and the hem was wonky BUT I wore it anyway! I loved the color and the way the dress flared out. The material is thick and a bra was not needed. I'm normally a zero or a double zero, but the zero didn't fit and thank God I had the back up of size 2.

Very good for dancing and comfortable
The color was a little bit darker than expected but it was still gorgeous. I ordered my usual size which is a 2 but ended up wearing the 4 because it was a little snug in the bust area. I am very short so I would have preferred if the dress would have been a little shorter but it still looked good at the length it is. I wore black shoes and a strapless bra with it.

Fun dress to dance in.
It was ok the 6 was not available since even the 8 was tight at the waist. Dress has fun movement. Loved the high neckline but, depending on how I sat, the side cutouts weren't always flattering.

I was worried about the peekaboo sides but I LOVED them! Such a beautiful color too!
The dress does run small. I got a size 6 and I'm glad I got a back up size 8 or I wouldn't have been able to wear it. It fits tight in the stomach section.

Fit perfectly. The cut outs were a little tight so I bulged through it when I was sitting but other than that it was perfect! So many compliments.

Great dress!
I really loved how great this dress was! I would say it runs on the smaller side, but it worked out perfectly for me since I'm very petite and it's hard to find things that will work. It's definitely very fitted throughout the middle and the material is on the thicker side.The overall cut of the dress was great, loved the side cutouts and the flare at the bottom.

Cute and bold
I rented this dress as my free birthday dress for being an RTR pro member. The color is beautiful in person, and I loved the side cut outs. The top is fitted, so maybe go a size up for your 2nd size as you could spill out of the side cut outs which would not be flattering. I'm a 34 D so I did have to go up a size due to the fitted top of the dress. I would rent this dress again.

Comfy but cute and trendy
This dress was really flattering and the cutouts made me feel trendy. The skirt did dig in a little at the cutouts so I went with the larger size. Easy to accessorize and dress up for a wedding.

So cute!
I love Elizabeth And James dresses, and this one did not disappointed. Rented this for a backyard wedding, and I think it fit perfectly. I've never worn a dress with cutouts before, but these were cutouts were just the right size, and didn't feel inappropriate at all. This dress was the perfect length on me, but I'm quite short, so watch out if you're taller!

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!

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

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.

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.
