beautiful Chicago wedding
the color is amazing, very fun and fresh. the dress does run a little small. I did size up, mostly for a little extra wiggle room to sit and to dance. the zipper on both showed signs of wear, they were no longer pink, the metal was showing through. overall, this dress was fun, flirty and fabulous.

Cute but tight!
Very pretty dress, comfortable but very tight. I sized up one size and it was still extremely tight.

Super cute. Loved the color.
Runs a little small. I am 5'2" 110lb and usually a size 0. In this dress even the 2 was a little snug.

Couldn't wear it and neither could my size 0/2 daughter
Too tight for a 60 year old like me. Wish I had ordered an extra size. It is a beautiful dress in a beautiful color! I'm gonna try it again next time in a 4.

I received many compliments on this dress!
I had to wear a strapless bra which isn't ideal for my larger chest. The dress was tight but hugged in the right places. I would recommend going up a size. The dress also rides up and I had to tug it down often.

Very comfortable and flattering dress.
I am normally a 5. I'm 130 lbs and 5'3" tall. The size 4 was tight to zip at the top. The 6 fit perfectly. Hugged my body just right and was nice and stretchy to sit comfortably. I felt beautiful all night in this dress.

The color of this dress is so unique and beautiful
I was worried that it would be tight but it fit perfect in the 0. It was tight in the upper portion, I was wearing a padded strapless bra, but nothing uncomfortable. The unique cut of the dress makes it so much fun to wear. The only weird part is where the asymmetrical hem meets the seam on the side, just a little bulky. Such an amazing dress.

Felt great so I had a great time!
PROS: very comfortable (after first hour; I recommend wearing it the night before for a little to loosen it up) form fitting, flattering fit and fashionable style. great color. got lots of compliments! CONS: hidden satin part around butt and thighs and makes it restrictive at first. not hot pink; it's magenta. I'm 5'9, athletic build, wear 8 in jeans and medium tops, and a 10 fit perfectly.

I loved this dress so much but it was too small to wear. I'm usually a 2 but this one was soooo tight that I couldn't comfortably wear it. Definitely a great dress but size up!

Beautiful dress that fit like a glove. RTR was a great experience
I usually wear a size 2 or 4 but this runs slightly small. The 4 fit but was snug across the hips which is not comfy for dancing at a wedding so I went with the size 6. Color was a little more purple than expected but still beautiful. You could tell this was an expensive dress because of the fabric. Couldn't see my stick on bra or undies underneath. My only complaint was that the paint was rubbed off of the zipper which I'm sure happens with continued wear. My hair covered it but may not be suitable for someone with short hair.

Beautiful color - sure to stand out!
I got so many compliments on the color and fit. It's perfect for wedding that it's an appropriate length but still a unique and flattering fit. The 4 was tight so it was bunching, so wore the 6. I rented another E&J dress and remembered to size up, so still true in that regard. Didn't need a bra, either.

Bachelorette Party
I LOVED this dress! It does run small so don't be afraid to size up. I usually wear a 00-0 depending on brand and I wore size 2 for this dress. The fabric is so soft and good quality. Very comfortable for a night out!

Gorgeous color!
Wore this to my company's chic Summer Party. It was an absolute head turner. I got tons of compliments on the color. DEFINITELY pick up a pair of Spanx and a cutlet bra to go with this though. The fabric is totally unforgiving; I don't normally feel like I have much of a stomach but the dress definitely made it stand out. On the other hand, it was really flattering for my butt and boobs. Overall, I loved it. You just have to be prepared.

Favorite dress I've ever worn
Can't say enough how much I loved this dress! Wore it a year ago for my friend's wedding and still talk about it! Fit perfectly, hugged all the right places, easy to dance in. Most beautiful color! True to pictures in how vibrant it is! Would 100% recommend!

I loved this dress and everyone else did too! Received so many compliments. I ordered a 4 and backup size 6. The 4 fit great and looked good on but I couldn't wear a bra as I have a bigger chest but the 6 I could wear a bra with and still looked just as good on so I went with the 6 plus it's a little more roomy for dancing!

Comfortable, flattering and a great pop of color for a summer wedding
This dress was great. It was form fitting but really classy. I'm 5'8", athletic build and sometimes have issues finding dresses that aren't too short, and fit my broad shoulders/back. The neck line is what attracted me to this dress, and I found it to be really flattering. Length was perfect, all around this was such a comfortable dress to wear to a wedding in July - on the beach in 90 degree weather! Had some stretch to it so dancing wasn't an issue and after eating I still felt just as comfortable as when I first put it on. I was bummed when I had to take it off and send it back!

Gorgeous but I could have easily worn an 8. Suggest ordering one size up and two sizes up from your normal size. Can't say enough about this dress I looked "bomb"

Love the dress, but runs small
Unfortunately, this dress runs really small. I'm 6' and the length was great, but I'm typically a size 6-8. In dresses I usually get 8 or 10, but there wasn't a back up size in a 10 available for this. The 8 came and it was too small, so I couldn't wear it and had to scramble to find a dress a few hours before the wedding. I loved the dress so I was sad it didn't work out. I'm bummed I spent a lot of money on the dress and couldn't wear it.

Beautiful dress and awesome customer service!
I received this as my back up dress when there was a delivery mix up with my original at UPS. The customer service team at RTR is amazing- I was so stressed out and the person helping me was calm and patient as we looked for a different option. RTR overnighted the dress to where I was staying (out of town!) and it got there safely with ample time. As for the dress, it is gorgeous. I felt really glam in it and got lots of compliments! I'm 5' about 126 lbs with an athletic build, so I was afraid it was be too long on me. I wore 2 in heels and felt like the length was flattering (much more in person than in pics). Like others mention, it does run small. I'm usually a 4 and so I ordered the dress in that size with a 6 for back up. The 4 was perfect if I wasn't planning on eating haha. I wore the 6 with spanx and was so happy with the way it looked! I would definitely re-order this dress!

Made my 40th FAB!!
Was looking for the perfect dress to make my 40th birthday celebration that much more special. Bought a half a dozen options and, on a whim, also rented this beauty. Needless to say nothing else compares. I have never gotten so many compliments or felt more beautiful in a dress. Fits like a glove, so plan on being snug but sexy. Overall, loved everything about this (and so did Hubby!)

This dress stands out from the rest!
I absolutely loved this dress. I've rented from this designer before and the sizes do run small. The 6 would've fit better however it arrived with 2 spots on it that were very obvious to the eye. That was disappointing. I usually wear a 4 and since the dress has a slit in the skirt (my hips/thighs are my biggest measurement), I was able to manage and dance the night away! The top fit perfectly. If the 6 didn't have spots though, I think I would've opted to wear it for more comfort. Overall though a great dress! Received many compliments on the style and especially the color!

I LOVED this dress! It is definitely snug but the material has some stretch and is thick, which made it very comfortable to wear all night. The cut is incredibly flattering and I loved the color. I received a ton of compliments and would 100% recommend this dress and I would even rent it again!

Festive dress for a fiesta style wedding!
I love Elizabeth & James dresses. They are sexy, but classy at the same time. Though they are fitted, I don't feel like I'm showing too much and am not having to adjust the dress all night. This dress was great for a festive fiesta style wedding. I was worried about it being too bright but it was a perfect berry color. In my opinion, the dress ran pretty true to size and I didn't see a huge difference between the 4 and 6. I would have worn the 4, but there was something odd happening on the hip seam on that size so I went with the 6 and it did fine. If you aren't comfortable in very fitted dresses- go a size up for a little more room. Overall, I loved the dress and will rent E&J again!
