This dress was very tight! I was unable to wear both sizes I ordered.

Very fitted! Make sure to size up! I'm usually a 10/12 but could not fit the 10 or the 12...without showing every curve, nook and cranny!

I received so many compliments on this dress - great for a wedding !

It runs a little small- i usually wear a 4 and opted to wear the 6 for comfort purposes. Overall - a great fit and stylish dress for a wedding!

Great dress. I got so many compliments!

I have broad shoulders so the dress was slightly tight on the top but not too tight. The slit was a little awkward when you sat down and crossed your legs. Nice length, I didn't feel like I had to be pulling down a short dress all day. Overall great dress.

My boyfriend LOVED this dress on me!!!

I wore this to my boyfriends wing ceremony (becoming a commercial airline pilot) and it was PERFECT for the occasion. I got a 4 and just prayed it would fit ( I'm really a 6 ). It has some stretch to it and with spanx and 48 hours carb free it fit like a glove. I got soooo many compliments. It's the perfect blend of sexy, classy, sophisticated.

Beautiful charity event!

Fantastic dress! It does run a little small and is a nice thick material - kind of like a wetsuit! It definitely shows everything, so if you're carrying a little weight at the stomach you have to wear shape wear with this dress (but it can't be the shape wear that goes to your rib cage and past your mid-thigh due to the cut out and slit). Other reviewers mentioned the slit wasn't too high, but I found it was pretty high on me. Gorgeous fit that works best with an hourglass shape.

This was my first time ordering from RTR and I am so pleased with the entire process!

This dress arrived in perfect condition. It is very tight fitting and is unforgiving especially in the white section of the dress. It made a huge difference to wear a pair of spanks underneath to smooth everything out! I ordered both the size 2 and 4, and I honestly didn't find too much of a difference in fit between the two sizes. My recommendation would be to order up a size or two if you do not want it super tight. I loved wearing this dress and got several compliments on it!

Great fit and I loved the cut outs and the high slit. Very sexy.

The white part is more off white. I was not expecting that. The dress fit perfectly.

This hot little number was the center of attention all night. WOWZA.

I won't say this runs small, but it's on the smaller end of the true size.

Perfect dress for a wedding

This was my first RTR dress and I had such a great experience. I loved wearing this dress! It runs true to size. Even though I could have fit in the backup size (a 2) I felt more comfortable in the 4. I have a large bust and with the stretchy but flatteringly tight material it was perfect. Can't wait to rent again.

I was devastated that it was to Small...!

It was a PHENOMENAL dress! Amazing quality and thick fabric. I just wish it didn't run small. I am a true size 12, but the size 12 I received was much too small. I'm also bigger chested (34G) and it squashed my boobs down too much. I definitely recommend sizing up as a back up. I was devastated because it doesn't even come in a bigger size for me. Hopefully I'll get down a few more lbs and can try it again in the future because it really was a traffic stopping number!

Fits snugs but in a good way. Went braless but still had a ton of support.

The perfect mix of classy with a side of sexy. Love Elizabeth and James!!!

I rented this dress to wear to my boyfriends work holiday party, unfortunately I was unable to attend the event; he's a surgeon and was stuck in surgery all night, downfall of dating a doctor. The reviews say this dress runs small, however I'm very petite and the 0 was a tad big in the back. I will be renting and hopefully buying this dead soon. Loved it so much!!!

Easy to rent/return. AMAZING dress!!

This dress is perfect!!!!! A lot of reviewers said this dress ran small, it was tight for sure but the 10 and 12 both fit. Even though I went with the 12 for more room, and that's my regular size. The dress was sooo pretty and sexy too. I had to worry about the slit, me being 5'10" things are always a bit short on me. But nothing I couldn't live with. I can wait to rent again!!

Not a fan

The sizing on this one was weird for me. I've worn an 8 in Elizabeth and James before, and it fit like a glove, but not this dress. It was ok on top, too loose in the middle, and bunched up at the bottom of the zipper. The midi length isn't something I normally wear, but the drape of the bottom of the dress was all wrong for me. The cutout also hit me in a weird spot. Maybe I needed to size down, but I didn't have time to deal with it before my event. I ended up not wearing this dress at all because I just felt awkward and uncomfortable.

My favorite rental yet- sexy but classy

This dress was my favorite yet. It was incredibly flattering and I've never received so many compliments. I was very self conscious about how little the white panel hides and because it shows everything I went with nude seamless panties in place of spanx (could see the seams) but it turned out fine. I was also worried about the length since I'm quite short but I actually loved the below the knee length. I sized up based on other reviews and glad I did. The dress is very tight. I had some extra fabric around the belly area but I could not have fit my booty into my regular size. Would absolutely rent again!

LOVE!

So many compliments!! Fits like a glove. I usually wear a 0 or 2. Went with the 2 fors my husband's work party.. And the 0 when in Vegas the following week! Definitely a perfect night out dress! I strive for best dressed at parties/events, and this nailed that vote! ... It was also recently worn by Chrissy Teigen in Lip Sync Battle = Celeb-style for sure!

Super sexy slit, great color blocking, but tight at the stomach!

The dress is beautiful, the fabric is think so it sucks you in a bit. The hole on the side makes it impossible to wear spanx though and the white side can show some panty line if you wear anything lace. I wore the size up and almost didn't go out in it since I was so nervous about how tight the dress was around the stomach.

Unfortunately I didn't wear the dress.

I was really excited to wear this dress for my 35th birthday dinner unfortunately the fit was not flattering. I am long waisted and the curves of the dress hit me in the wrong places and made the slit way too high on my leg. Had the fit been right, I would have worn the larger size. I gave it 3 stars because the dress would be lovely on the right figure.

Great dress- super flattering!

I absolutely loved this dress. I wore the size 4, only because the 6 wasn't available as a back-up size when I ordered it. Depending on the brand, I'm between a 4 and 6 and this dress seemed to run a bit tight, especially if you have muscular legs/butt like me. That said, it was still super flattering, albeit not the most comfortable due to the sizing issue. My advice for people who are in between sizes like I am is to order up since the material is form fitting anyway. Even so, I would still wear again even if only the 4 was available- I got so many compliments!

Wasn't able to wear.

This was my backup dress and it didn't quite work out. My hips are pretty big so I think that made the slit come up even further than it should have. It's a gorgeous dress and it's made from quality material. It would be great for someone with smaller hips!

Such a gorgeous dress but it was a wee bit too small. Also cut outs don't work for me because my skin/fat squeezes out! Lol, found out the hard way. Beautiful dress otherwise!!!

Sexy, cool girl dress

This dress has the sexiest form fitting shape with the high slit & peek of skin at the rib cage. Way too sexy for any type of church ceremony or work event but peeeerfect for a hot date, non-church wedding or night out with the girls! The fabric is double layered so provides support where it covers; I'm busty & was nervous about the flattened look of the high neck but was totally fine & the seam offered a slimming optical illusion. Bottom line is that this dress is hot! I felt like the coolest , sexiest girl in the room.

Not black and white

I usually wear a size 4 or 6 but thankfully I ordered a size 8 as a backup because this dress runs so small! The dress itself was very comfortable and flattering... The main downside though was the color. I was under the impression the dress was black and white. It is actually black and cream which does not look as good especially when standing next to someone in a white shirt.

All the ooos and ahhhs! :)

This dress was a hit! I wore it for the opening of my show A GENTLEMAN's GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER in Los Angeles, and it was the perfect attire for the settings. The dress got compliments all night and fit like a glove (a slightly tight glove which maaaaybe eating in isn't recommended? Ha), but like a glove nonetheless. Loved it!

Cute dress, but for a specific body type.

I simply was not comfortable in this dress. I am a fit size 8, but based on reviews ordered a 10 & 12. The 10 was the right size but it was just too tight. I didn't wear it for the event I was planning to wear it to, but I threw it on for a play I went to the next night (I just never took my jacket off!) spanx are a must- but not too high or else they will be seen in the cutout, and not too long down the legs or the slit will show them. Really cute if you have a thin midsection!

Stylist Review

This dress runs a bit small, I definitely recommend sizing up for your back up. It should be worn with a strapless bra. The length of the dress makes it appropriate for a cocktail affair or even a fun night out. The slit and cut out makes for a sexy and fun style. Pair it with classic pumps for a sleek look!

The material is thick and stretchy! Sucks you in and hugs your curves!

I'm really curvy- big boobs (36 D), big butt. This dress hugged in all the right places and sucked me in because the material is so nice and thick. I would def recommend if you're curvy, but it is tight! So if you do have some "extra" poundage order a size up. I normally wear a 4 and I ended up wearing the 6. Super fashion forward and just the right amount of sex appeal

Great dress, perfect fit!

The dress fit perfectly. I am 5'2" and it hit right below the knee. The slit was high, but not too high. I could still comfortably dance in it without fear of it rising too high or ripping. The cut out is just big enough to make the dress unique, without showing too much skin. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a classy/fun cocktail dress.
