Fun and flirty
I am 5'3 so the length is perfect. It's breezy and the color was beautiful. My favorite part is the neckline.

Fit was nice, didn't love color
This dress was sent to me as a replacement when a dress I selected was not available to ship. I would not have picked it because of the color but tried it on anyway. It fit very true to form and would not have required a bra; but, ultimately the color washed me out too much and it didn't work. It's very pretty and the fit was nice and the material really comfortable.

Great Dress, many compliments from the ladies and the men!!
This dress is so nice, true to size but I have to say I had both sizes the 4 and the 6 and they fit exactly the same, even in the length . Also it was tight in the bust. But very comfortable and everyone loved it. I am obsessed with Rent the Runway!!

Great fit, true to size
I always think that E&J runs slightly small. Since I vary between a 4/6 I decided to rent the 6 but after putting it on realized I could have gone with the 4 and been safe. You definitely need a strapless or nubra with this one based on the neckline. I wore this to a semi-casual outdoor party and it was a hit!

True to size. Loved that it was a little short to show off my legs.

Too short for family wedding
This dress is really cute and well-made... but it's REALLY short. I'm 5'7" and it was nearly showing my underwear if I bent over. I decided not to wear this to my cousin's wedding.

I felt so pretty in this dress. Classic beauty!
Fit was fantastic for my petite, athletic frame (very small chest, square body). The shape of it also gave me some "curves" by highlighting my shoulders and flaring at the skirt. I felt so pretty!

No fuss, all fun!
I rented this dress for an end of May wedding reception at a yacht club. This dress is perfect for a wedding as it is classy yet very comfortable and easy to dance in. The fit hides all of your imperfections as well. I don't have much of a waist but this dress created the illusion of a waist for me. You definitely cannot wear a regular bra with this dress-- you'd be better off wearing a NuBra if possible. Rent this dress!!!

Absolutely adored this dress! Tons of compliments, perfect color for a summer wedding.
Fit beautifully; a touch on the short side, but worked for me. Needed to wear a strapless bra with this one.

Love the color and racer back cut! Fun and perfect for summer.
This dress ran mostly true to size but slightly small. Snug around the waist but the fabric has give so it's super comfortable. Definitely short! If I were taller I might not have worn it.

Great Summer Dress in a Light Blue Color.
The dress fit great, I could have worn my usual Size 2 in the dress but I knew after a night of drinking and eating at a wedding, I felt more comfortable in the Size 4. I am petite and the length of the dress was great but think it would be too short for anyone of normal height.

The color and fit of this dress made it perfect for a summer wedding!
Wore this dress to a summer wedding and loved it! Super comfortable and very flattering fit. I was nervous it would be too short especially with the flare but it turned out to be just long enough and felt appropriate but fun. The color ended up being more blue than the model photo as well. Great summer wedding dress!

Modern neckline with a classic silhouette. I wore this to a friends wedding and received a lot of compliments. The color is really nice. Kind of an ice blue. Fabric was comfortable and dress was in great condition.

So cute but TOO SHORT for tall ladies
This dress was super cute- as others have said, it's more of a "Tiffany blue" in person. Fit great- definitely highlights a small waist. I am 5'11" and this dress was just too short- as in, you could see the bottom of my butt when I turned around. If there was any way I could have gotten away with it, I would have- but it was just blatantly too short. HIGHTLY recommend for those 5'8" or shorter. Great dress- but not for giants :-(

perfect for an outdoor summer wedding!
The dress fit really well. I was a little nervous it would be too tight or too short based on some of the other reviews, but it fit me perfectly and I thought the length was fine. Though if my legs were a little longer, that probably would not have been the case! (I'm 5'4") I was also afraid the soft blue color might wash me out a bit, but I thought it was beautiful. I highly recommend!

Pretty dress for summer wedding!
I ordered the 4 and the 6. The 4 fit a tad too tight when sitting, so I decided on the 6. The 6 did gap slightly in the arm holes, but not enough to be noticeable or make me uncomfortable. I wore a nude strapless bra and the dress was easy to wear. The fabric was really nice (did not wrinkle) and the color was even prettier in person.. The only negative is that it's a bit short. I'm 5'6" and wore 3 inch heels. Had to be careful on the rooftop for cocktail hour since it was windy!

Fun dress for a hot, summer wedding
I wore this dress for a summer wedding. The light blue is a very pretty color. The dress is well-constructed; made out of a sturdier fabric. Based on some of the other reviews I was worried the skirt would be too short, but it wasn't for me. I picked up sizes 2 and 4, and I ended up wearing the size 2. It was a snug fit except for the top half of the dress as it gapped a fair amount in the chest area. The was mostly noticeable around the arms. I wish I had been able to try the size 0 for a better fit. For someone who runs on the smaller side of a B-cup, I have found the larger chest sizing to be an issue with Elizabeth & James dresses as a whole.

Perfect
This dress was one of my favorite rentals. It's a beautiful color, a flattering fit, and great quality. I felt comfortable, yet elegant. Of the size 2 and size 4 rented, I chose to wear the 4; I am long waisted so the size 2 was just too short. I received several compliments throughout the entire night and wish this dress was my own to keep.

Gorgeous color and cut
This dress fit perfectly - I would go one size up from your usual (as I do with all Elizabeth and James dresses).Color was a beautiful bright blue, great for summer. It was the perfect length on me but I'm only 5'1, so definitely runs very short. I wore it with a strapless bra and it was very comfortable stretchy material. Loved it!

This dress fit perfectly, it hugged in all the right places and it wasn't too short. The light blue color was perfect for my nephew's baptism. LOVE the neckline, i received so many compliments on the unique cut-out shape.

Perfect for a summer wedding! So flattering!
I LOVE this dress. If I could purchase it, I would. It's so comfortable, the fit was great, and it was so flattering. I lost count as to how many compliments on the dress I received. It was perfect for the summer wedding. I read some reviews about it being too short but for my 5'1" frame, the length was perfect! I would rent this again & recommend it to others! This was my first RTR experience but definitely won't be my last!!

I wore this dress as a bridesmaid dress and was very happy with it!
It fits comofortably and can be worn with a strapless bra. The actual color of the dress matches the online picture perfectly. I ordered a size 2, but ended up wearing the back-up size 0, so my recommendation would be to go DOWN a size rather than up one.

Love Elizabeth and James Dresses!
I thought the dress ran slightly small. I wore a size 2 but typically wear an XS/S or Size 0 in Rent the Runway. Overall, I love Elizabeth and James dresses! The fit is always great on my body type. I loved the pale blue color and received tons of compliments on the dress. The material was slightly stretchy so it was comfortable for a night out in Charleston for my friend's bachelorette. I probably wouldn't rent again but it was fun for the night!

Great dress for a wedding. A little short but not too bad. comfortable fabric and beautiful color
I ordered the 6 because of the other reviews and because the 4 was not available and i am glad that i did. with a large chest and at 5'6" the 6 was much better. Everyone loved it and if you have blue eyes this is definitely the dress for you!

nice and comfortable
nice light blue dress, nothing that was outstanding. the neckline was interesting, but i have rather broad shoulders and felt like it didn't work well for me. i'm typically btwn a 2 and a 4 and sized up to a 6 because E&J can run small, but i couldve just gone with the 4. i didn't end up wearing a bra and it held everything in just fine. as other reviewers mentioned, the dress is short, but at 5'3" it wasn't an issue for me. i wore the dress to work and dinner. i would nicely not rent this again, but because it isn't nice, but because E&J has a lot of other fun items

Having a dress I felt great in!
I loved the way this dress fit, really comfortable and a nice thick fabric that wasn't too hot even in the hot Sonoma weather. The only downside was that it was relatively plain without any jewelry - I was hoping my mystery bling would be a necklace, but it ended up being earrings (which I didn't wear). I styled it with a statement crystal necklace and really liked how it ended up looking with that. Would definitely order this dress again!

Great Dress!
I wore this for a summer wedding, and at first was concerned that the color was going to be too light. The dress is a pretty ice blue color and is definitely not too light for a wedding, on the model though it looks much lighter. I sized up, the 6 was a little too short, and even the 8 was short but still appropriate. Other reviews stated it was short so I wasn’t surprised by that. I loved the top and the material was stretchy and comfortable. I wore it with a statement necklace that I also rented.

Wore this to a wedding and got compliments on the color, would rent again!
I've ordered from RTR a few times before but this was the first dress I ended up liking enough to wear. I ordered the size 4 with the size 6 as back up; ended up wearing the 4 even though it was a bit snug in the waist since the fit was better in the chest (the 6 gaped somewhat). I was able to wear a strapless bra underneath and was still comfortable. Some reviews mention this falls short but as I'm on the shorter side myself, I didn't find this to be a problem.

My perfect dress!
I am 15 years old. I wore this dress to my high school homecoming dance. I loved everything about it; color, style and fit. I was worried that it would be too long and too big because I am so short and do not weigh much, however, the length and fit was perfect. It was slightly big in the bust area on me but it worked fine. I would definitely rent this dress again and would recommend it to friends.

Felt sexy yet still classy and conservative enough for a wedding!
I typically wear a size 4 but I wore this in a size 6. I am a 34C and the way that this dress cuts in between the breast and armpit area made me go up a size because my boobs looked slightly squished in the 4. If you have a larger bust I would definitely recommend getting your typical size as well as a size larger
