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.

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!!!

Easy to wear, gorgeous color
Fit a little small so I went up a size - small in the bust. Great style. A little short but flirty and girly. Loved it!!

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.

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!

Fun dress, lots of compliments
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.

I wore this to my friend's rehearsal dinner. It was very comfortable and a great dress but runs small. Definitely order a size up!

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

Perfect colour and fit for summer engagement pics
The cut out top made the shoulders and arms look fab! The length was great. Fit and flare silhouette perfect for a classic look. The colour is timeless and will look great 20 years from now too. The fabric was nice and held everything in place. Again EJ never misses!

Easter dress
Rented this dress for A family Easter party and church. I also rented it in a pale yellow the "Clarissa Dress" I was in love with both but the blue seemed to compliment my skin tone better. I wore it with nude heels (even though I'm wearing no slippers in the picture) not too short for the family but fitted enough to make me feel beautiful. Runs small but as expected for Elizabeth & James, definitely size up.

Color is pretty - skirt is quite flared
Fits well, in my opinion ran average size to large end. I didn't love the skirt but I'm generally not a fan of a-lines or skated dresses, I was hoping it would be less flared. Cute dress, and the color is really unique, perfect for a garden party.

Love the style and cut. I had to get creative wish my bra since it cuts narrow in the front and back. Rented this for vacation but it was too cold to wear it. Will rent or again!!

Awesome, unique neckline!
I love this dress! Such a unique neckline. I wore the 6, but realized I should've worn the 4 for it to be a bit tighter on my bust (didn't wear a bra). So many compliments, so comfortable, and so well made!

The fit and color of this dress was perfect for our rehearsal dinner. I couldn't find a white dress I loved, but I thought bridal blue was even better!

Loved the baby blue color and high cut neck line.
The 8 and the 10 fit fairly similarly but the 8 fit better around the bust/arm holes for me. Cut a little short but I short so it was perfect. The color was different and the cut was unique. Loved this rental.

Perfect dress for a day-date with my husband.
Beautiful cut and runs true to size. Have rented other dresses from E&J and am always impressed. I spent the day hopping from sitting to walking around in 85 degree heat and this dress was a trooper! It stayed crisp and clean with minimal wrinkles. Would definitely rent again.

Made it work
I absolutely loved the style and color of the dress. I wore the 10 to an outdoor wedding. The dress fit beautifully except for when the zipper got to my back... It took a few people to zipper it up lol. I am a 36D. Also I'm glad it was a "summer chic". Dress code so I wore flat sandals because I'm 5'4 and I wore a slip and I still felt self conscious dancing because it was so short. This WAS my backup so I had no choice but to make it work. I wish Elizabeth and James made this in a 12!!! Beautiful dress otherwise I guess it's just for skinnier girls than me

I rented this in yellow for a summer wedding. Thought I'd try the blue. Loved the fit and it's comfortable but super cute. Wore it to rehearsal dinner for a friends wedding.

This high neck line tho
Rented a 4 and a 6 and didn't even try the size 6 on. Such a flattering fit and I LOVE this color! I'm a busty gal so it was tight on my chest but I wore a sticky bra! Can't wait to rent again!

Love this dress!
I agree with the other reviews for sizing -- this dress runs small. The neckline is very flattering and the color is a pretty pale blue. Chest is on full display in this dress; not for busty ladies!

Great dress!
Loved this dress!! Length was great for my petite frame. I'm only a 32a, so didn't quite fill out the bust and it was a little loose. Overall, looked awesome, highly recommend!

Perfect dress for a summer wedding!
The shape of this dress is so cute and flattering! I wore this to a summer wedding and it was perfect. I'm short and like my dresses to hit above the knee, and this was great! If you're on the taller side this would likely be pretty short, it hit mid-thigh on me. This was a great rental, I would definitely rent again!

Beautiful neckline
Wore this dress for a bridal shower. After this rental I am in love with Elizabeth and James. The material is thick enough to feel luxurious but not be too hot. I got so many compliments on the neckline and color of this dress. Wish I could buy it! Does run slightly small & is a little short if you have long legs & a larger butt like I do.

The most flattering and fun dress!
I literally loved this dress. I wish I owned it. Everything about this dress was awesome. The quality, fabric, fit, color. Everything. I'm short and busty with a slim waste and everything was hit perfectly. I got tons of compliments. I recommend this dress to everyone. Don't be afraid of the top cut. Bottom line - loved it!

Beautiful color and interesting neckline
I ordered a 6 and 8, both fit but the 8 was a more comfortable fit for me- a little more room up top and longer length. The dress was comfortable to wear and an absolutely beautiful baby blue color. I loved the different neckline.

I've rented Elizabeth and James dresses in the past, and this dress did not disappointment. The fabric is stretchy, and comfortable. The length was perfect for my height, and the flowy skirt was perfect for dancing!

I wore this dress to a coworker's wedding. I received several compliments. The size 2 was a perfect fit for my 5'2" petite frame.

Favorite dress ever!
I rented this dress for a wedding & it was perfect! The fit is amazing & the fabric has a little stretch to it. I was able to wear a strapless bra with no problem. I got compliments all night! I would definitely rent this dress again!

So Flattering!!
I rented this dress for a rehearsal dinner that was half-inside and half-outside. I absolutely loved this dress and have tried to rent it a couple of afters my first time and it's always sold out in all sizes. The dress is a great color that is slightly out of the norm, but is not too in your face. The neckline and cuts around the arms are sooo flattering! The material is great for a outdoor summer event!

endless compliments
I ordered this dress in a 2 and a 4, as I was anxious about how it would fit based on all the reviews. I am normally a 0 or 2 depending on the brand. The night before my delivery I got an email that the 4 I was expecting wouldn't be coming with my order because it was returned damaged by the previous renter and was SO nervous. Turns out, the 2 fit perfectly! The cut was SO flattering; I loved the color. And the dress was SO COMFORTABLE. the dress is thick enough to hold you in place but has decent stretch, so after a couple drinks and a meal I didn't feel like it was too tight. I couldn't be happier with the whole experience. I'm very short, so didn't find length to be an issue (tho the skirt does fly up a little if you spin while dancing) ...and it did show some sweat after a night on the dance floor (at an outdoor wedding in August) I wish I could've kept this dress forever and I will definitely rent another Elizabeth& James dress soon!

Wonderful dress
This dress was wonderful! The color is such a nice baby blue and the length is short enough to show some skin, yet still modest. The neckline is high, but not tight around the me know, it's a very soft fabric that's easy to move around in and keeps you cool. My one complaint is that it's a little tight around the bust, but overall a great experience and a great dress.

I loved this dress! The fit was flattering and the material was thick. I loved the color and think it's a really great dress for a spring wedding or party! I ended up not wearing it because it was a little cold on the day I wanted to wear it, but I will definitely rent again.
