Sexy cut!

I didn't end up wearing this to the event, but loved the look! It's a great color and has awesome accenting fabric on the seams. The cuts on the side give it a sexy look! I found that it ran a bit small, so I would size up if you have a larger bust.

Very classic!

The color of the dress was fantastic. The fit is very unforgiving, of any imperfection. I wore my usual size, because the size size up was too big around the top. It was VERY form fitting. It was a bit longer than I had anticipated as well. Being one of the first to rent, all I had were the model pictures to look at. Definitely would not recommend for anyone under 5'5-5'6

Evening wedding at a performing arts venue. Lots of dancing and fun.

The dress fit beautifully; snug and very flattering. There is boning in the top to keep it straight, and it stops right at the waist. Because of that, sometimes the waist would scrunch. The fabric is stretchy, and I was able to dance all night and be super comfy. I received so many compliments on the fit, color, and details. Would highly recommend. Wish I could have kept it.

My favorite RTR rental ever.

I wore this to a black tie optional wedding and got so many compliments. I normally size up to a 4 in Elizabeth & James, but the 4 on this was large; the 2 fit perfectly.

Unique color and style for a rehearsal dinner

I absolutely adored the color and style of this dress - the asymmetrical slits on each side were an interesting structural detail. The corset in the dress is pretty complex, you'll benefit from having someone help you put the dress on! Slimmer in the hip than other brands in this size.

I received many compliments on this dress!

The dress looked great- material doesn't wrinkle at all so it was easy to pack. The fit is very slimming. The fit runs mostly true to size or slightly smaller. I would recommend this dress for someone tall with narrow hips as it is a bit more snug fitting around the stomach & hips.

Simple elegance

Outdoor wedding at 4:30 for a co-worker. I want d something conservative but elegant. This was perfect. It fit perfectly, true to my normal size. The 0 was a little too snug in the chest and bottom and a 4 would've been too big so I'd suggest go with your regular size and the lower size if you're thin, larger size if you're fuller figured for your back up. Wore this with platform sling backs and a black knit shrug. Very flattering construction.

Loved the color of this dress, it was a great grey/purple color great for summer -> fall transition

I rented this for a September black tie optional wedding in Austin, TX. The dress was tight but also very flattering. I have a small chest, and it was a bit loose up top but extremely fitted in the hips and seat. I'm 5'9 and normally wear a size 8, but ordered up to a 10 knowing that Elizabeth & James cuts very small. Overall, it was a great dress though the fit would have been best for someone very narrow through the hips. Still, I loved it - and it looks great in the pictures!

Unique, fun, versatile dress! I loved it!

The dress is gorgeous - classy and sexy. It fits a bit tight in the middle but the fabric is slightly forgiving. I am usually between a 6 and 8 and wore the 8. A full size up would have been too big. I danced all night and received tons of compliments! You can have a lot of fun with the accessories too. Enjoy!

This was my niece's wedding.

I love the way this dress fit my body. It felt great, and the piping details on the back and zipper attachment were also a nice touch and attractive. I really loved it, and felt great in it.

I didn't wear the dress

overall fit just didn't work for me so I never wore it. I didn't like how the chest area fit, and I felt like the strapless bra wire was digging into me.

I'm 5'9 and 120 lb so I don't think this dress would work length wise if you're on the shorter side. The dress fits snug and I got a ton of compliments. Highly recommend!

Classic dress with beautiful seam detail on the back!

I wore this as a bridesmaid and it was great. It stayed up all day with out incessant tugging. My one regret was not wearing spanx because it's definitely not very forgiving, but the seaming on the back is beautiful, and the defined waist helped me feel confident.

Didn't want to send it back!

This Elizabeth & James dress is now one of my favorite rentals. I loved the grey color and form fitting style. The side slit added an extra hint of sexy without me having to worry about being too exposed. I wore it with big, chunky earrings and a delicate bracelet and that's all I needed for accessories. For undergarments, I wore gel pasties, but could have worn a strapless bra too. Also, I had length concerns and the dress was the perfect length for me. can't wait to rent again!

This brand runs small- adorable dress!

Loved this chic gunmetal grey dress for the formal summer wedding I was attending. This brand tends to run small so I wore the larger size,8 as opposed to my normal size 6. It was pretty close but the zipper was a little stiff on the 6 and I had to travel for the wedding so I went with the larger size. The details make this dress - so elegant.

Simple, slimming and forgiving

The dress didn't look like much on the hanger, but it looked and felt elegant when worn. The fabric is thick and stretches easily, making it easy to move in while keeping a smooth appearance. I didn't need a bra with the built in bodice and felt comfortable all night- even after hitting the buffet.

Danced all night!

I felt so chic in this dress! It's simple, but includes some really subtle details that make it feel expensive. It has a "deconstructed" look with the visible zipper, satin piping and raw hem. Comfortable, thicker stretchy (forgiving) material. Doesn't ride down as some strapless dresses do. I was able to go braless - always a win. I'm usually between a 4 and a 6 so I ordered a backup. I ended up wearing the 6 because it was less tight and more flattering. I'd describe the color as grey with lavender undertones. Did arrive slightly wrinkled (pictured straight out of the package in the second photo) but nothing a good steam can't fix.

Gorgeous dress, very trendy and different

It's tight around the midriff and don't think about wearing spanx because it's tight around the legs too and the slit is high, so spanx lines will show. If you have big boobs this might be a little much because it really emphasizes them though the built-in top part kept them firmly in place (along with a strapless bra). Overall, very sophisticated and cool, and I liked that it was different than the traditional date night dress. Definitely ideally will be in killer shape to wear it next time :)

I loved this dress. I could have used a 2 just because the fabric is not forgiving.

Amazing night, not the right dress.

This dress was tricky to get into! There are many hook and eye clasps in back. I was unable to get into it myself. :) I ended up wearing a different RTR... I had rented 2 dresses.

Runs very small!

I was really looking forward to wearing this dress, but I ended up wearing my back up style, since I thought this was too tight and not flattering in the right places. Even though I went up a size, it was still too small.

Slimming, flattering fit!

I got this dress for my graduation. I loved it! The material is great and very slimming. The top part has a built in bra thing so no need for a bra! It is a little tight fitting through the mid section but the 4 still fit.

Not quite right for work party

I love a pretty, strapless dress and this one almost worked for me! I think this dress was runs a little small - I'm typically a 6, but the 8 fit well...I think the 6 would have been too tight in the hips. For reference, I'm 5'6", 140 pounds and 32DD chest. This dress was very pretty from the front, but the zipper makes it a little less formal and a little more strange, so I had to pass and didn't end up wearing the dress.

Cool cut

I've been eyeing this dress for some time. It is unique and flattering. The one thing is that the fabric isn't as nice as I was expecting / interpreted from the description. It isn't as sateen as photos looks it's more of a heavier jersey knit. It's structured enough that it works but just didn't feel as elevated as I would have thought.

Classy, elegant, sexy, unique

Love the details on this dress -- it is raw-edged with all sorts of creative seaming. Also, the top basically has an interior corset -- I didn't need a bra, which is a major feat for me & the DDs. It felt secure the whole night. Lots of compliments. Would definitely rent again!

Simple and sleek

I normally wear a 0 or 2, but having rented this brand before, I realize it usually runs small so I ordered a 2 and 4. I felt that I could have worn the 0 in this particular dress, but the 2 fit okay. It is a sleek and simple silhouette, so you can definitely up your accessory game. Overall I would recommend this dress.

Beautiful, understated dress that stands out

Definitely a tight fitting dress. Top will roll over a little bit but can be fixed quickly. Love the fit and the feel of the dress. So comfy and didn't wrinkle at all when I packed it and brought it to this event. The dress is definitely on the tighter side so be prepared to break out the Spanx

Too small through the chest, for me. It wasn't close to zipping.

I didn't wear it, unfortunately. I liked it but despite the style, the material made it seem casual.

OBSESSED

Absolutely loved this for a wedding! I am typically a 0 in most dresses - sometimes 2 depending on brand and got the 0 in this. Definitely wore spanx and had to have my sister zip me up every time I went to the restroom but it was worth it. Just beware if you're by yourself! Would have like to try the 2 if I had the option just to see fit difference in fit but absolutely loved it! Unique color + classic style = WINNING
