My favorite dress I have ever worn.
The moment I put on this dress since it arrived at my doorstep it's all I think about. I am seriously considering buying it now. I got an enormous amount of compliments with this dress. It fit perfect. Elizabeth and James is my favorite designer of all time and you can not go wrong with any of their dresses!

This dress is dramatic, glamorous and elegant. Loved wearing it !
Received lots of compliments on this dress. The color is so rich and the fit was so flattering. I was concerned about the cut out but it wasn't too tight that it's cutting into you. The material is thick so it's body forming but like I said super flattering. I'm 6'0 tall and wore 3" heels. I wore the tAll size and it could have been an inch or two longer but with the slit and style of dress it totally worked. Super glam dress that I wish I owned.

Most gorgeous dress ever!!!
I literally could not be more obsessed with this dress. I wore it to a formal wedding and was complimented all night long. The 2R fit me like a glove. It was very classy but still had a touch of sexy with the side cutout and the long slit. I was able to wear a normal bra and just criss-crossed the straps in back. I was worried about the length since I'm short, however I wore 4-5 inch heels and it was perfect.

Stunning and sexy but still classy!
The dress is absolutely stunning! The fit runs a little small as I usually wear a 6 but went with the 8 so I could eat and still be confident. The cut out hits perfectly at the waist emphasizing the smallest part of you. The slit is the perfect height making it easy to walk and move around in. Although the fit is somewhat snug, the thick material helps to keep you looking good and slim. I wish I could keep it, I love it so much! Would definitely recommend.

Perfect pop of color and shows just the right amount of skin to keep it classy ;)
This dress is amazing if you're looking for a classic red gown with just a hint of sexy. Wore this to a wedding in October and received endless compliments. The size zero fit, but the 2 was more comfortable for moving and sitting (I'm 5'4" 34 B) and there was no difference in length between the 2 sizes. I wore with gold earrings, gold/black shoes and gold bracelet - I contemplated adding a statement necklace, but I felt like it would ruin the pretty simplicity of this dress. A++ rental!

Perfect amount of sexy
I was probably in between sizes but ended up sizing down so I didn't have too much fabric at the waist. This made the slit a touch tighter so I had to be careful not to tear it squatting down. But the fabric had a lot of give. I absolutely loved this dress which was sexy without being overtly sexy. Only note is that it doesn't travel well. The dress came slightly wrinkled and I had to have it ironed out.

Red hot!
This dress is so HOT! Sadly, I did not wear it to my event. I'm between a 4/6 and the only one available was a 4 and although yes it fit me, it was a bit snug in the hip area. There isn't any give so make sure you order your usual size. I'm 5'9 (definitely get the long) with a long torso and larger hips, it emphasized my curves but was just a bit fitted for my comfort. The slit is tasteful, and not at all too high. I have already placed my order for the next wedding I have in a size larger because this dress is a head turner.

That red! So eye catching & the fit was uh-mazing
I LOVE this designer. This is the 3rd dress I've rented from Elizabeth & James, & each one has been made for a woman (which is ironic when you consider the designers lol). They hug the hips in a good way, while keeping everything snug. The fabric is always decadent and the skit was just the right about of sexy.

So many compliments!! Classy & elegant yet the cutout makes it fun and modern! Perfect dress!
It runs a little small and is tight. Every curve will show - but that's what makes it shows topping. I received many compliments! Would wear this dress again!!

This dress is a crowd pleaser!
I usually wear either a 4 or 6, and the 6 was unavailable for the dates I needed the dress. Luckily the 4 fit but was a little snug for dancing. Overall a stunning dress. I got a ton of compliments!

Caution: causes stuttering, staring problems, and loss of speech
Gorgeous dress, gorgeous red shade! I'm about 5'2", at 118 lbs, 34B-26-34. I normally wear a 2, but the 4R fit me perfectly and was very flattering! With 4 inch heels, I still had to tape the hem up about 3 inches. Wore this to a formal party. At the risk of sounding narcissistic (which is not my intention), people's jaws dropped, breaths were taken away, and loss of speech and stuttering ensued. Countless compliments were given, with and without words. The amazing red shade, and the cut-out and slit are great accessories to an otherwise simple silhouette. Pair with demure earrings and bracelet to avoid overdressing this sleek number. A strapless bra, or crossing the straps could be worn with this dress. I opted for an adhesive bra for a seamless look. There is good weight and amount of stretch to the fabric. Size up as your back up to avoid spillage at the side cut-out! Rent this dress asap!

Perfection!!!
Runs true to size. I ordered a 8L & a 10L, I ended up wearing the 10. The 8 fit nicely but with the cutout on the side I felt most comfortable in the 10. I wore three inch heels that worked perfectly. Both dresses arrived in perfect condition and required steaming. I felt great in this dress and received many compliments. I highly recommend this dress!

Dress was perfect! Got compliments all night. Wore it to a wedding for my BF's cousin.
The dress fit like a glove! I am usually a size 2, I'm 5'3'' and 125lbs. And although I could just get the size 2 zipped up I was afraid of being uncomfortable sitting and with the cut outs I didn't want to be spilling out of the dress. The size 4 fit perfect and was still form fitting and didn't need a bra with it since the material was nice and thick. Wore it with a pair of 3.5inch nude strappy heels. Just the right amount of sexy!!

The dress was great!
Wore the dress to the Snow Ball; was happy with the fit but was surprised to see quite a few others in the exact same dress, as I was told that once the dress was reserved for an event, no other duplicates would be rented out. Not that I really cared. Would definitely use RTR for another event.

This red really POPS & photographs well! Order 1 size up.
I typically wear a 4 & probably could have gotten away with it, but when I sat down I felt that the cut out created a skin bulge. I wore no bra... Even a racer back showed through the cutout. Def not designed for busty girls... You either can wear sticky boobs or nothing. This dress isn't very forgiving in the tummy & the slit is too high for spanks. The slit added the perfect element of sexy- not too high & still comfortable when sitting. I'm 5'3" & wore 4" heels- this was perfect for the length. BEAUTIFUL DRESS!!! Was very comfortable all night & I felt super sexy while still maintaining class! Highly recommend this dress for small breasted, tight tummy girls.

Rented this dress in a size 0 and 2. The 0 was unavailable so I was nervous the 2 would be too big. It was not. Ended up wearing the two and got a ton of compliments. Great dress. Beautiful material and very chic.

I felt really sexy in this dress
I loved this dress. It had a better fit than other Elizabeth & James dresses I have worn...most of the time the boobs & hips are pretty snug on me but this one layed perfect. I was concerned about the cut out but I hit at the right spot. Love the color & the fabric is very comfortable. I received lots of compliments on the dress. I would order it again for sure.

I was receiving compliments all night on how beautiful I looked!
My friend described me on this dress as "The Puerto Rican Jessica Rabbit" and funny enough it's a pretty accurate description. This dress was perfect for my Barrister's Ball (basically law school prom). I felt sexy and elegant at the same time. The dress hugs in all the right places and showed off my assets, it made me feel slender and the classic Angelina Jolie leg slit was amazing. I loved wearing this dress and I may rent it again for my friend's black tie wedding, it was just perfect.

Beautiful color!
Very pretty dress, lots of compliments on the color. The regular length was good with very small heels, but taller women will probably want to get the long. It was a little snug in the hips, so I recommend sizing up if you are really curvy.

Loved! True to size. If you're insecure abt tummy area I would advise against bc it hugs the body.
Really fit well, I was able to cross the straps of a regular bra to wear with it.

Red always turns heads!
Sadly this dress runs small. Its very tight and snug. Its form fitted from breasts all the way down to your butt. Hard to move around in and unflattering looking in the stomach area if you eat and don't have a flat tummy. I normally wear a size 6 or 8, this dress was a 10 and barely fit. Im 5'9 and weigh 145lbs and had trouble fitting into the gown...but everyone loves a red dress! Very striking.

Customer service was amazing
This dress definitely runs a little small, so size up. Also I was able to wear a regular bra underneath, but for girls with smaller chests you would be fine without one. So many compliments on this dress and the slit is perfect. I'm 5'6" and ordered the long and with 3" heels the length was perfect.
