Springtime blue ruffles

I couldn't wait for it to be warm enough to wear this. The material almost feels like a thinner scuba material. It's cut deep into the chest, so I had to wear it with a strapless bra. A little detail, but it has a fabric pull on the zipper so you don't need help getting in and out of it. I wore it to work with a blazer and adored it.

Fits well love the color

Like other dresses of this brand fits well, high quality material. The lighter material showed some lumps and bumps and it was a little small for me but once I got it zipped up I liked how it fit overall.

Perfect Shade of Blue

This dress was perfect for a spring wedding. The ruffle adds a nice, fun touch, and the drrss also has a slight slit which adds a hint of sexiness. The shade of blue is really pretty and flattering. The fit is true to size, snug throughout, and the fabric is supportive without being binding. I was able to go braless and just wear pasties. I always feel like a dress is a good pick when the bride tells you they love your outfit 😉

Classy, Fun, Sexy, and Comfortable!

I went with the larger size of the two I selected. It is a little tighter around the waist, so I chose the larger size for more wiggle room, because when you go to a southern wedding, you need to make room for delicious food and drink! I'm a sweater and the wedding and reception was outside in 85 degree Charleston weather and not a drop showed through on the dress- score! It was comfortable, fun to dance in, and shielded the buckets of sweat (because girls glisten right?) I'm 5'7, athletic build, wide shoulders, small waist, size 8. This dress was a winner!

Very firm fitting

The color and fabric of this are both great. I sized up as reviews suggested and was glad I did. While, flattering this fabric is not forgiving. If you are self conscious about your stomach this may not be the dress for you. I also needed a racer back bra, a standard's straps showed far too much

Nice color and very comfortable, but a strange cut

I wore this for a bridal shower. It was a fantastic color and very comfortable, but the sort of wing in the side made the dress feel a bit dated and less flattering. To add to that, the back zipper had a weird stringy tie that was made to be seen, but I thought it was tacky so I hid it in the dress. It runs pretty true to size and feels very well made.

Beautiful dress but requires strapless bra

Didn't end up wearing this out because I'm a 36 DD and strapless bras are only comfortable for so long. Also, it's tight through the midsection so any belly bloat shows. That said, it's striking and sexy and pairs wonderfully with a statement necklace.

Bold in a subtle way.

Fits very tight for large busy ladies. Great length to show off some leg while still being tasteful. I paired with a fun shoe since it is a solid color. Fantastic color!

Great rental for a friend's summer wedding. Color is amazing. It runs small- definitely order a size up. Received many compliments- comfortable dress thicker fabric.

Compliments all night! Love this dress!

Very fun dress. Nice material, fun zipper in the back. Loved the side ruffle! I got a ridiculous amount of compliments on this dress! Snug in the tummy area, material also isn't forgiving. Love love love this dress.

Very cute dress, fit was a little off

I loved the color and shape of this dress and it was great for work as the slit wasn't too high. Following other reviews, I ordered one size up and was happy I did since I wouldn't have wanted the waist any tighter. However, the shoulder area was then a little loose and the armholes were gaping a bit. This wasn't too obvious and I still enjoyed wearing it, but I probably wouldn't rent it again.

Great look but definitely needed a size up!

This dress is a stunning color and amazing when on, but you definitely will need a size up. The size 4 fit fine, but was very tight around the chest for me and made it uncomfortable. I emergency shipped the size 6 out (THANK YOU so much RTR for that!) and it fit like a glove. I got shaping spanx to wear underneath to make everything look smooth and I fell in love with it. I felt so comfortable and beautiful at the wedding and had fun dancing the entire night. I am typically a 2 or 4, 34D or 36C bust, 26 waist and 36 hips, and the size 6 was perfect for me.

Cute but creases easily

This dress was pretty and great for a hot, daytime wedding in southern California. It definitely runs small so order at least one size up. My only complaint is it creases easily.

Great dress, but def read below on the fit!!

This was my first time wearing a RTR dress, & I have to say I'll definitely do it again! This dress was great - good thick but still stretchy material & it fit well in all the right places & hid my high thigh which I'm often self conscious about. I will say that based off the model photo I wasn't expecting for it to be fitted all the way down to the ruffle, & Elizabeth & James runs SMALL. I've been a 6-8 as of late & the 10 was what I wore. Overall though awesome dress for a Sept beach wedding & would definitely recommend for a wedding or formal event!

Love the dress. Runs very small.

Beautiful, simple dress. Loved the color and cut. I ordered a 4 and 6 and even the 6 was too small. I could have worn it, but would have been very uncomfortable.

Gorgeous color, runs very small

This is a pretty dress that I wore for a daytime bat mitzvah (with a cardigan) and reception. Since other reviewers said it ran small, I ordered both a 4 and 6 (usual size 2). The 4 was snug across the midsection. While the 6 had more room across the stomach and rib cage, it was too large in the chest and the arm holes gaped. I ended up wearing the 4. It wasn't very comfortable, but it looked fine. (It tended to show everything, including underwear and bra lines, so you may need a body shaper underneath.) I think if you have an hourglass figure--small waist and larger chest--this dress would be perfect. For more athletic/straight figures, the fit just isn't right.

Not for small bust or short torso

Wanted to love this, the color and fabric were really nice and I loved the long pull on the back zipper to help get into it, but the size didn't work. I've ordered this brand before and it ran a full size small, but I probably could have used my normal size in this one. I have a shorter torso and smallish bust (34b) and this gaped in the armholes and was just big enough to make me uncomfortable. Didn't wear it.

Great dress for a day party!

I wore this to a Mardi Gras Day party and it was perfect. So comfortable and easy to walk around in. Did not ride up. I usually wear a size 4 so I would say it was true to size. I did wear spanx just to be safe because it was very fitted around the waist, but I definitely could have gone without them. The material wasn't too heavy for the warm day and the detail on the side was very flattering. I got so many compliments I will definitely be renting again!

Form fitting with thick material. I'm usually closer to a 6 but thankful I went with the 8 for this dress. Need a racer back bra so straps don't show.

A bit too tight

It "fit" but was snug in the middle and slightly too big up top (rented an 8 and normally I'm between a 4&6). And I have a broad upper half. Decided with the solid color and the tightness in the middle (where I am a bit thick) it wasn't flattering.
