Cut outs are best part!

Dress definitely runs small so order a size up. I wore on New Year's Eve and it was perfect. Cuts outs make it a little flirty and fun.

The color was great and it fit me so well!

I'm 5'7 and have a medium build so the size four fit me perfectly! I would definitely recommend this for a daytime event or a casual wedding. I received so many compliments from friends!

I wear a 2 and a 0 and the 2 fit other then the cut out areas. I have a very small waist so I was surprised when it was tight in that area. I did not end up wearing the dress for that reason.

Absolutely loved this dress!!!!

Loved this dress and received so many compliments. The dress was sexy with the side cut outs yet very classy at the same time. The dress was super comfortable and felt great all night. It was very fun to dance in with the fun and flowy bottom. Loved the color, true to model picture. Would definitely rent this again!

Unique and gorgeous !

Wore this for a wedding. Runs small for sure. I'm petite and wore the 2 which still was a little snug. Color is great! Many compliments! Nice length for a short girl like me, but may be short for anyone over 5'6".

Girl, you'll need that size up! Once I did put it on, it had such a great fit. Amazing, thick fabric, fun skirt but not too short. I got so many compliments on it!

Too small but I will rent it again

I got a 10 even though I wanted to size up because only the 10 was available. I usually wear a 10 and have even worn an 8 in some RTR dresses but the 10 could barely zip and was way too tight. The party was canceled anyways, but I'll rent this dress for another event and get the 12 because it's absolutely gorgeous.

Gorgeous teal color and love the side cut outs

Super fun and flirty but a little too short for a formal event. A statement necklace dresses it up and makes it a little more interesting.

Gorgeous color!

Fit wonderfully! Cut outs always make me worried that they'll pinch my skin and bother me all night but these felt fine. The cut and color were what won me over the most so fun and flirty with the cut outs giving it a little bit of sexy.

Made me feel beautiful on my birthday!

I rented this dress to see a Broadway show on my birthday. The dress was a gorgeous color and so flattering. However, it does run small. I usually wear a 2, and wore the 4 for this occasion. The cutouts were pretty snug without any stretch. I may have even been able to wear the 6 but then it may have been too big in other areas. Overall, this dress made me feel beautiful on my birthday and made for a memorable night! Note: I paired with sheer polka dot tights and a cardigan since it was a cold night. The dress is a great color can be paired great with a variety of accessories!

I got so many compliments on this dress! I love the color and the openings in the sides change it up

I normally wear a 0 or a 2, and ordered a 2 and a 4 because I read that it ran a little small, and the 2 fit perfectly! If you're looking for a cute, different dress that could be worn in a formal setting or semi-formal setting then I'd recommend this one!

AMAZING. It looked great, I felt great. Beautiful color. Extremely classy with some fun on the sides

I got the 2 and the 4 and fit into both. The 2 was a little tight and since I was going to be sitting I preferred that my sides weren't bulging out. It's beautiful honestly. I paired it with crystal earrings, nude heels, and pink lips. It's such a classy dress and a beautiful color. I highly recommend.

Great customer service

Overall the dress was very cute and flirty. I wouldn't say it's my favorite, I was expecting the color to be more vibrant than it was. It feels a lot shorter than it actually is because the skirt isn't fitted. I'm typically a 0 or 2 but went with the 4 because the chest area was tight.

I loved wearing this dress and I got so many compliments! The color is really beautiful and the cut outs hit in the perfect spot. Dress does run very small. I usually wear an 8 and I wore this dress in a 12.

So easy. Rented from the store in Vegas. Couldn't of been easier!

Runs small. I'm usually a 4 or 6, but even the 8 was tight. I was breastfeeding at the time though, and had just had a baby six months earlier so that may have been why. :/ Can't wait to use RTR this spring for a black tie wedding!!!

Runs small

I like this dress. I wore it for a bachelorette party. I sized up to a 12 after reading other reviews. I'm glad it did! The waist is small but I had some room in the bust even though I have a large chest. I was somewhat disappointed because the lining of the dress seemed to be showing and the bottom seam was not ironed flat like the 10 was. It made the skirt look a little fuller but wasn't a huge deal.

Not my favorite, runs small

Runs small! Super tight fit with no give. Could not even zip the dress in the back and the cutouts were very tight in a not-so-flattering way. Not my favorite dress from RTR

This dress made me feel so grown up. I wore it to a dining out with my college friends, and it was perfect. They all like to make fun of me for being the youngest, but I certainly didn't feel it that night!

Great quality and color!

The quality and color of this dress is great. It ran a bit small, I normally wear a 2-4 and the four was a bit smug although loosened up a bit. I loved the slits in the side, it made the dress a little more unique. This is my second Elizabeth and James rental, absolutely love them!

Perfect for a spring or summer wedding!!

So usually I wear a 0 in dresses and my backup size (2) never gets worn. As many have said, this dress runs small. They're not kidding. There was no way that 0 was going to fit. The 2 however fit well. It's a great dress and as long as you size up, you'll be good to go. It's comfy, flattering, fun, and unique. I felt beautiful and it was a huge hit!!

Loved the side cut outs!

I'm not sure this was the most flattering dress for my body type, but it was so cute! I loved the side cut outs, and it looked great with a colorful necklace. I wish I could I have worn heels, but I knew I'd be doing a lot of walking so I opted for flats instead.

Beautiful and very comfy!

Rented this dress for my boyfriend's fraternity formal... I had never rented this designer before. Loved the quality of the material, the high neck and the cutouts. Would have preferred to wear the 4 but the cutouts were snug when sitting/bending/etc, so I would suggest sizing up for your backup size. I had read in other reviews that the dress was short, but with the full skirt I found it to be perfectly fine and I'm 5' 8"-9". Great dress and will definitely rent Elizabeth and James again.

Beautiful dress! Such a stunning color. The dress runs pretty small so go a size up. Very easy to accessorize. Everyone loved the dress and I received many compliments the whole night. I wish I could've kept the dress but I cannot. Either way, you'll be turning heads with this show stopper!

Fun wedding dress

The dress was so comfortable and great for a wedding. The cut outs were edgy but not too much. I found that the dress ran a little small so I wore the bigger size. I paired it with a chunky necklace that I also rented from RTR.

Loved the cut outs

This dress is true to size/slightly small b/c if too snug around mid section, you could potentially bulge out the cutouts. I wore strapless bra. I wore to a May wedding, received lots of compliments that it was "sexy." Overall, loved.

Great for a party, formal, or extra special night out on the town!

The dress definitely runs small, specifically around the area of your true waist, so go up a size or even two when ordering. The color of the dress is more blue than green, and a little darker than the sample photo which I thought was a pro!

Sassy yet classy

The cut outs really made the dress. Overall, it was a snug fit but very flattering. I rented both sizes 2 and 4 and went with the 4 because it was more comfortable while sitting down especially after eating. Would rent this dress again!

Fun dress

This dress fit very well and was very flattering, had wished I had ordered a larger size I have a very small rib cage so normally a 0 or 00 dress if it is A line fits me perfect but because of where the cut outs hit it pushes your skin out some. I wore the 2 but I think even I 4 may have been nice too because then the cut outs would have hung open more too. But then maybe the bottom would have been too big. Overall it was a great dress my husband love it on me and so did I.

Gorgeous color!

Another great Elizabeth and James! This brand tends to run slightly small & knew this going in. I usually get a 4 & 6 but went with 6 & 8 because of the cutouts. Glad I did because the 8 was much more comfortable on the sides. Unfortunately the 8 had hemline issues with the liner folding out and showing. I was able to use dress tape to hide it, but it kept playing with it all night. Wore this to a rehearsal dinner & my cousin was able to wear the 6 to the wedding the next day- she is 5ft 10inch and usually wears a 4. Looked great on us both!

Cute!

Rented this to change into at my brother's wedding after I took off the floor length pink dress I wore as a bridesmaid. Great for dancing! Super unforgiving with the cutouts though. Perhaps I should have tried on the 4? Although I think it would have been loose in other areas. Loved it though! Great color for red heads.

Super cute!

The 2 fit perfectly on the top but just barely fit around the cutouts. The 4 fit perfectly around the cutouts but wish it was about a 1/4 of a inch tighter on each side on the top. Ended up going with the 4 because it was just more comfortable not having to worry about anything bulging out of the cutouts all night long. Overall, really cute dress and definitely can't complain!

Loved this dress- runs VERY small though!

I wore the 0 because I felt like it fit fine, and also because my backup size 2 came very wrinkled. However, as you can see in this photo the cutouts were not flattering when I was actually dancing- I definitely wish I had worn the size 2 now!

Perfect dancing dress

This dress def runs small. I usually wear a 4 but I wore a 6 in this and I could have done an 8. But otherwise it was adorable-- I got so many compliments and it was comfortable and classy but flirty and fun too. I would highly recommend it! I am 5'3 and it was short enough to show off my legs but not too short to where I felt uncomfortable or inappropriate. I wore geometric earrings and bracelet from Rent the runway (astr I think), and did a purple smokey eye. Wore "nudist" heels from Stuart weitzman (looks like model's shoes). Love!

Gorgeous color !

The color was gorgeous! The material was thick and of good quality. I rented a 4 and 6, because I read reviews that the dress runs small. Unfortunately for me, I could not wear either of the dresses. The cutouts were ill-fitting for my body, I was "bursting at the seams" in both dresses, so let's just say I did not feel good in either size. The skirt and top of the 4 fit great, but the cutouts were really tight, so I tried the 6 hoping that it would be different. The 6 skirt and top were too big, but the cutouts were strangely still just as tight. I was disappointed because I loved the color and the style, but the design was a little off. Beware if you can pinch an inch on your sides, this dress may not be most comfortable!
