Great fit!
I loved this dress, although didn't end up wearing it to the wedding, since the shoes I had matched the other option I rented much better. Highly recommend this one, just be aware it comes to the knees if you're somewhat short! (I'm 5'2")

Amazing dress
Comfortable, great color and the quality you'd expect from Elizabethans & James. I'd recommend going up one size (her dresses definitely run small). Wore this for a bachelorette party and it was fun and flirty

Gorgeous Color
Wore this for my birthday night out , received so many compliments! Just a note, it does wrinkle a bit towards the end of the evening if you've been seated for a while.

Bachelorette Party!!
I am 5'1" and 100lbs so finding dresses that fit well can be a little tricky. This dress was definitely longer on me than on the model, but it worked out beautifully! One of the best things about this dress is the material. It was thick and stretchy which made me feel comfortable and confident. I would recommend this to anyone!

Hot stuff!!
Dress fits your curves just right. Only in the chest area did it fit slightly snug but I do wear a 34D and did not end up wearing a bra. I felt sexy in this dress! I danced all night in it. I would wear it again!

Felt sexy just two months after having a baby!!
Fits small ... Normally I'm a 0 (pre baby) and now am a 2, 8 weeks postpartum. This dress made me feel awesome, cut outs were placed perfectly. I suspect when I lose the rest of baby weight I'll be down to a 2. Doubt the 0 would ever fit though, so saying this runs small. Didn't wear a bra. Fabric is tight and thick enough that it holds you in without needing one. Wore to an after party at a wedding. Rose gold accessories. Downside was couldn't wear spanx because of the cutouts... But the 4 fit so well I didn't really need to. Definitely renting again for upcoming Vegas trip!

Head turning dress! Loved it!
This dress was a hit! It was such a stunner. It turned heads all night. I loved the color and the cut outs were hot while the length kept it conservative for a wedding. I enjoyed wearing this dress! I rented the 0 and 2, thinking I may need to size up but decided the 0 fit better and even stretched a little by the end of the night. I can't wait to rent from this designer again!

I felt hot and confident in this dress!
He dress fits like a glove, which is great, but also can be constraining. The straps can hurt if you sit for a while in the dress. Dancing in this dress was great, except for when you wanted to move your legs more. It is very tight on the legs if you have thighs. Even though it fit very snug, I still felt sexy even after I ate! I loved the color!

Awesome dress, little snug
I ordered a 6 & 8. I had to wear the 8 and it was perfect. The reason I rated this a 4/5 is because I found that I had to keep pulling the dress down after walking or dancing. I would recommend a size or two larger when ordering.

Rented this dress for a Spring wedding. Wore the size 2 and was the perfect fit. Loved the bright pink color. It was brighter than I expected in person but looked great.

Stand out color!
Overall, this dress was a winner. The color was perfect for a summer wedding, and the side cutouts were subtle but sexy. This dress does run small. I typically fit comfortably in a size 8 and even size down to a 6 from time to time, but this 8 was snug on me. This dress pairs easily with a variety of shoes and accessories. The tight fit left me feeling a bit self conscious at times, which is the only reason I rated as a 4 instead of a 5. If you are totally cool with your body than this is a great rental!

Great for a night out with the girls
I usually range from a 0 to 2 but the 2 was unavailable. The 0 fit nicely but was rather snug (which I usually don't mind) especially in the bust. If you are a bit curvier, make sure to size up. Great color and design! Got a lot of compliments from the girls on the bachelorette trip I wore this for

This is an amazing dress! One of the nicest dresses I've ever worn. I got compliments all night !
The dress is pretty tight but the material is on the thicker side so it hugs very nicely. I am a 34D so it squeezed my chest a bit. I had to take it off to use the restroom because it's too tight to slide up. The zipper is also difficult to zip all the way up by yourself. In spite of this, I still love the dress and would absolutely love to own it. The color, the fit, the cut.. Love it all!

This dress was so perfect for my Birthday
Loved everything about this dress. The color was so bright and the material was thick! This is my boyfriends favorite dress I have ever rented! I felt so beautiful that night. The dress comes to the knees, and is snug all the way down, so I wouldn't recommend it for dancing.

Perfect dress for the Oaks!
I wore this dress to the Kentucky Oaks, and loved it! It is a little snug- but the look is supposed to be fitted, so it worked. I would rent it again.

Fun birthday dress
This is a pretty dress. It was a little big on me (sorry I didn't get a full length picture). You can tell in the picture it was big on me in the waist. The dress went down a little past my knees. Cute dress for a fun night out.

I wanted to like it...but just didn't feel comfortable
I maybe could have pulled this dress off....but it just was too small for me. There weren't any other sizes available and I thought a 4 would work given I'm normally a size 2. The ladies at the store cautioned me that a 6 might be too large around the cutouts. So I'm just not sure this dress works for my body type. The color was even more vibrant and pretty in person. The material was thick and stretchy...but felt uncomfortable to sit or even dance (not much room for dancing or even spanx for that matter). Ultimately I had to pass. I just didn't feel comfortable in the dress.

Perfect dress for a Vegas wedding
This was my first RTR experience. I chose to try it in Vegas since there is a store location in the Cosmopolitan, in case there were any issues with the delivery. Luckily, everything went perfectly smooth! Both dresses arrived at the hotel on time and in great condition. I tried on both dresses and decided to go with the size 6. I have wider shoulders and the 6 was easier to zip than the 4. The fabric was high quality and thick, yet not heavy--which was important for a wedding in the desert. The color is much more of a hot pink in person, which was fine for this particular wedding. But I wish it was closer to the color it appears in photos. Overall, it was a beautiful dress, I received tons of compliments!

Eye-catching dress with a great material
I left a previous review - not sure what happened to it, but overall - dress is really nice, features high-quality material in a beautiful color, and of course, has fun cut outs that are sexy but classy. Definitely recommend!

Sexy yet classy
Tight, but not uncomfortable. Color definitely stands out. Only downside was my strapless bra started showing towards the end of the night (as you can tell from the pic) but that was my fault as I should've chose another bra to wear underneath. Overall really liked it and would recommend!

This is an awesome dress!
Such a pretty color for a summer affair, it is a hot pink without being juvenile. Was nervous about the size as reviews said it ran small but it seemed ok for me, and I didn't have issues dancing in it. A very fun dress!

Gorgeous color and agreeing cut!
The dress was a beautiful color. The cut and cutouts were very flattering. The material was very high quality and thick without being hot. The dress was tight, but had plenty of stretch and held its shape all day and evening. I received so many compliments. The only down side was trying to make sure the bottom of my bra didn't show at the top of the cutouts. I just checked it when I went to the bathroom and had the hubby keep an eye out for me. No mishaps! Overall, amazing experience and great dress!

Rented this for my finances birthday dinner and he LOVED it!
I thought I was going to have to go with a different style because my usual size, 2, was unavailable so I opted for the 0. I heard this dress runs small so didn't figure it would fit me. Although it was snug, I think the 2 would actually have been too big because the 0 looked amazing. I felt incredible and comfortable wearing this and would totally rent it again!

Absolutely amazing!
I rented this dress for a July wedding and it couldn't have been more perfect! The color is definitely much brighter than it appears on the model but it was absolutely stunning for a summer wedding. Just a word of caution like most other ladies have said, this dress runs very small so definitely make sure you size up! I am always a size 0 in dresses but followed the advice of previous renters and ordered a 2 and 4 to be on the safe side. The size 4 was large on me where the cutouts were but the size 2 fit like a glove! It is super tight around the legs but I was still able to walk and dance comfortable all night without any issues. I had people stopping me all night telling me how much they loved my dress! It was just the right amount of sexy so ladies, if you're looking for a show stopping dress, this is it! I seriously may never own another dress again!

Cute color!
Fit is very slim all the way down. Very conservative length if you're short I am 5'4" and it went to just above my knees (also tight there!) which made it pretty hard to get in and out of the car. Only annoying part was as you walk, the dress will ride up slightly, closing the open gaps on the side. Otherwise, a wonderful color! Not too bright. Wore to an August wedding and was perfectly conservative but summery!

I wore the size 4, but the size 2 also fit. It was just a little too tight to be comfortable walking around and dancing all night. Received a ton of compliments on the color and cut of this dress...100% would rent again and again. Absolutely loved it!

First rental I wish I could own!!
I have rented many dresses, and while they have been all great, this one I wished I could keep! I'm usually a 6, but it was not available so I went with the size 8. The fabric has very little stretch and the skirt is very form fitting. Going up stairs and sitting was a challenge at times. But all worth it!! The dress color is a gorgeous coral. Would definitely recommend.

Perfect fit!
This dress is fitted and flattering. Because it's so fitted, it may be difficult to dance/walk with the fabric around the knee. I'm 5'1 and put a temporary hem in so it fell knee length instead. The cut is perfect. Highly recommend!
