I'm the same height and weight as you should i wear a size zero? You said the fit was large and i was going to get a 2, do you think a zero would have fit you better?

Very conservative sexy
My boyfriend loved the cut but the waist was just a little high for my taste. Short length that made if feel very sexy with heels! The neckline/back worked with a racetrack bra but just barely. I had to wear my hair down. Nicely lined and a good weight for the fabric. Would rent again!

Pretty adorable.
I added this dress on as a 2nd look, which I wore to the wedding rehearsal. It was cute and just right for the occasion, but could definitely work for an actual wedding too bc of the quality. Definitely fits like a glove, maybe even a little snug if you're between sizes and choose the smaller. Loved the dress nonetheless :)

Was there any issue with wearing a regular bra with this dress? It looks like it might need a strapless bra?
LeticiaMay 5, 2015
I wore a strapless so it's hard to say. The materials pretty thick so some might not even need a bra. My strapless worked great though because the dress kept it in place.

Cute neckline and fun swirly skirt!
I am either a 4 or 6, but usually a 6 in this brand, and this dress was no different. The high neckline was beautiful, but it tugged at my neck a bit which could get annoying. The A-line skirt is fun, and means you can exhale/drink beer and not be as worried as you might be in most E&J dresses. Overall very cute. I just wish they had this dress in bright colors, since the shape is so fun but the color here more sophisticated.

Stylist Review
I truly wish I had a picture of this one! I wore this style to brunch, and it fit the same as the Racer Dress also by Elizabeth and James, (I left a review with a picture of the Racer Dress). Very true to size and comfortable I recommend a racer back bra, or using a bra converter. I am fuller busted, and there was no issue with that. It is very flattering, and it is likely I will rent this again!

Wore this dress for my bridal shower- completely perfect!
Beautiful dress. I wore this for my bridal shower and got a zillion compliments. It fits perfectly (would be super short if you're a tall girl- I'm definitely not). I totally loved it and did not want to send it back. The neckline and back are super flattering, and I felt great in it!

It was a perfect dress for a wedding. Cute and flirty, and great for day to night.
It's a thick material, so it conceals anything you want to hide. I'm only 5'3" so I'm usually concerned dresses will be too long, but this one fit great. It's very form fitting on top and nice and breathable on the bottom. I also didn't have to wear a bra with it, which made it even more comfortable. Wish I owned the dress!

Totes adorbs!!
This dress is very flirty and fun! Perfect summer dress. Fits true to size, although I did find it to be a little loose on top. I'm a b-cup and was able to get away with not wearing a bra. It is very short (especially in the back). If you're much taller than my 5'7" (or if you have a lot of junk in the trunk), you may have trouble keeping your booty covered. I would love to own this dress! Will definitely rent again!

A little short but cute on
I wore this dress during a staycation. It is short. I am 5'9" so this may not be an issue for some women. It is very cute. The only thing I will say, if you have issues w/ your arms, you may feel self conscious due to how the top is cut.

I wore it to a horse race and it worked perfectly.
The dress fits true to size. The fabric is thick which worked well because the day I wore it was really rainy and cold out.

Casual and classy
Wore this dress on a date to the Symphony. I ordered a 6 and 8, but had to wear the 8 because the waist was snug. The material does not stretch, at all. If you are busty, have a wide rib cage, broad shoulders, or large arms I would advise sizing up. The pattern is pretty unique and flattering for all body types. For all my other tall girls out there, the length is just right, not too short, but above the knees to show off our sexy legs! I don't think I would order this dress again, but may order another dress from the same designer.

Heavier than expected and Short!!
Really cute dress but I rented this for an outdoor event when it was 80 degrees outside. Fabric/lining was a lot heavier than I expected. I'm. 5'7 with a long torso and both the size 2 and 4 were too short for a classier daytime event so I didn't wear it.

Comfortable and figure flattering
The dress was just the right thickness! Perfectly body hugging while leaving breathing room and eating room! A tad short when sitting/bending but as login as you're not attempting to pick up any stray pennies, you're good! Def recommend a strapless as the white stripe fell right in the nipple area and going braless def meant exposure!

Absolutely stunning dress. High quality material. Adorable fit. Tons of compliments. Do rent this!
The only reason I didn't give this dress 5 stars in because RTR called me the day the dress was supposed to arrive and said the size 0 was damaged and they were sending the size 2 and also sending an alternate dress. I wasn't super pleased about this because I am very petite and I usually swim in a size 2. The alternate dress that they sent was a size 0 but it was a white dress and I was going to someone else's bridal shower....so that wasn't going to work. I decided to wear the size 2 in the vineyard dress anyway and I'm glad I did. The dress was definitely big around the armpits and waist (I had to belt it) but it was such an adorable and stylish dress that I was willing to overlook it. The size 0 probably would have fit like a glove. So basically my complaints were all related to RTR and not the dress itself.

Gorgeous dress, just too short.
I loved this dress. The stripes, the colors, everything about it was perfect for me. the 0 wasn't available so I ordered the 2 and the fit was great. Fit my top well but like others said, it was way short. I am 5'6" and it was just under my bum. I was so sad. Not appropriate at all. If you are on the shorter side and petite up top, it should be perfect.

classic
The dress is subtle but slimming! I love it! It's classic and the stripes are flattering in all the right places! This dress is perfect when you want to look beautiful without being the center of attention. Dress is well made and structured. It is tighter on top and forgiving for pear shapes!! Definitely wear with a statement necklace.

Adorable, lovely, and party perfect!
I did not want to send this dress back to RtR after my event. I wore it to my Godson's christening and it was beautiful - beyond my expectations. It was a sunny day and this ended up being the perfect choice, extremely flattering. Short, but not too short, chic, summery... exactly what I needed - plus I'm totally crazy for stripes so this fit the bill. I need to find and buy this dress because I can see it being great for many other occasions (weddings, summer parties, etc.) The material was thick too (but not hot), so it didn't get wrinkled which was great since I wore it for several hours.

Stood out in a sea of LBDs!
I loved this dress! It fit perfectly - some may think the top may be a bit form fitting but it worked great on me as I did not need to wear a bra with this dress. And trust me, the girls were up - I am a 34DD natural cup so support is important for me. It was perfect length and fit. I wish I could buy this dress!

Great customer service!
I rented this to wear to a party but when the dress arrived, although it is very cute, it was just too short for me to be comfortable wearing. Otherwise it fit well, so it wasn't a size issue. I called RTR right away and they shipped a replacement the same day which turned out perfectly. I should have listened to the other reviewers who said the dress was short, it barely covered my behind. I am about 5'6". For someone who is petite or younger, this dress would be perfect. It is very cute!

Back up Dress
You can see with a full bust this dress makes me look like I'm squeezing into it. Not the best choice for someone with a butt and boobs. I rented this as a back up and I should know better. But I always like to try new things. The material is stretchy and the dress itself is great. If you have smaller bust and are more athletic or straight and narrow this dress would be beautiful. On me, not so much.

This dress was AMAZING! Definitely a top choice for a summer event.
This dress was AMAZING! It was my second option so I prayed that the size 0 would fit & it did! Perfectly!I love this dress so much that I found it on sale online & purchased it. Definitely a top choice for a summer event. I wore this to a Sunday brunch & paired it with orange wedges for a pop of color. The material is not thin but even with the hot sunny weather, I didn't feel it was too heavy by any means. The skirt part looks a bit shorter if you have longer legs like I do but its not inappropriate for a family event.

A cute, comfortable, and stylish dress for an outside party (in this case, my 20th reunion).
I needed a dress to wear to my 20th high school reunion at an outside venue during July in hot/humid Nashville. I wanted something nice, but not too dressy as the attire called for sundresses. I had a baby 4 months earlier too, so wanted a dress that would be flattering in the waist area and a full-skirt silhouette fit the bill. I am normally a size 6 pre-baby and went with a size 8 post baby. The 8 worked fine, but was a little tight in the chest given I'm nursing. There was no size 10 option to choose from as a backup, otherwise I might have decided to wear the 10 for a little more room. Overall happy w/ the dress, was comfortable, and looks great in pictures.

I loved this dress. I wore it for my rehearsal dinner. The 0 fit perfectly. I got sooo many compliments on it! Even as I was walking to the bathroom from my table at the restaurant, a woman stopped me to ask where I got my dress. Will be renting this one again!

Flattering Fit!
Like many reviews before mine, this was such a cute dress. The dress was extremely well made with thick but forgiving fabric and the style fit perfectly. I am 5'10" and some say this was a little too short, I don't think it was at all. I wore it to a wedding and danced without feeling like it was too revealing. The cut on the shoulders made my arms looked more toned than they actually are as well :) Great dress all around- I highly recommend it.

I never tried the 6 because the 4 fit just right. Great material- had to travel with it, and very few wrinkles when I pulled it out which was nice! Loves the way it made my shoulders look with the cut of the top!

Fantastic fabric!
I love this dress! I rented this dress for my engagement photos in downtown Cincinnati/Riverfront northern Kentucky area; and it was perfect! I rented both the 2 and 4, but went with the 2 since it fit my bust best. The classic fabric (almost like a khaki pant material), print and style of the dress are what sold it for me. It was a bit shorter than I would've preferred but, I still loved the dress. The dress has a nice white satin liner that helps keep everything concealed (strapless bra and panty)! I had to pull the dress down a few times, but other than that I had no complaints. It didn't wrinkle either! Even after lots of sitting and posing for pictures. I would rent this again in a heartbeat!

Cute, high-quality summer dress
Wore this to a pretty casual outdoor wedding. This was my first time using RTR and I'm always on the fence about whether I need a 4 or 6 when ordering online, so the second size was super handy. The bust and arms were kind of snug in the 4, so I went with the 6 for a comfier evening of dancing and beer drinking. Great shape and sturdy (but not itchy or hot) fabric. Length might be an issue if you're a tall gal or for a more formal event, but worked fine for me. Would definitely buy this dress if I could catch it on sale.

Perfect fit and flare!
This is a great dress! I'm an hour glass lady so this was perfect for me- fit and flare. I am usually between a 6 and 8. The 6 was perfect, did not even try on the 8. For fitted things I turn to 8. I wore it for my boyfriend's surprise party. After the shock and awe, he later commented that the dress was amazing!

So many compliments!
I wore this for a rehearsal dinner and I received so many compliments. I usually wear a 2 but they didn't have a 4 and sent me a 6 and it worked. It was shorter than I was expecting and looser in the mid section than I would have liked. I felt like it made me look wider and I'm not sure if that was because it was a little too loose or because of the dress itself. The cut really accentuates the boobies so if you've got big ones, prepare for them to be noticeable in this number. Overall, great dress though.

Figure-flattering, classic dress but runs quite short if you have a butt!
If you have a bigger booty, be cautious with this dress!! It's pretty short, as you can see from my second picture; I don't think sizing up would give the extra length needed either. Otherwise, I found the dress ran true to size. I wore a nubra-type bra with this but you could do a strapless. Besides the length, I loved it!
