Different and modern

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Ran a size small. I'm usually a size 0 in everything, but the 2 fit perfectly. Could get the 0 on but it was unflatteringly tight and bunched up in weird places. 2 was perfect-- snug body con type fit with some stretch. Bright turquoise color in person.

Great Color - Runs Small

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I normally wear a size 6, but this was definitely a tight fit at 6. Grab a size up and it'll fit perfect. The color and cut of the dress are fantastic - I would definitely rent it again, but go up a size so I don't have to wear spanx. :)

Tons of compliments- Great neckline- Order a size up!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Pros- Color, neckline, nice fabric, received a ton of compliments. Wore nude heels and a necklace I already had. Cons- Very tight. I normally wear a size 6, but I should have ordered an 8. It was on the tighter end… especially if you have a butt, which I do. I pulled it off, but I would have been way more comfortable if I received a larger size. When it is tight the bottom rides up… had to keep pulling it down. I was flying out of town so I did not have enough time to order another size. I would totally wear it again in a larger size. Great customer service!

Nice but not feminine

Overall fit: True to Size

I loved the fabric and the color, I have rented other Elizabeth & James dresses and have loved them. The cut was very sporty... I wanted a more feminine look.

Awesome dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I read other reviews that it ran small but I actually found that while I'm usually a size 2 , I probably should have stuck to that and worn the 2. The 4 was a little too big in the bust and I like things tighter rather than looser. But overall very positive experience and awesome dress.

Fantastic dress for a Spring wedding at a Virginia winery!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved how the length of the dress balanced out how form fitting it was, I didn't feel too racy. I also loved that the material allowed me to be spanx free, it was great quality! I wore a strapless bra with this dress and everything worked out just fine, the rich blue color was devine!

Great color, hot dress

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I have issues with size 0's still being too big on me, but this one fit like a GLOVE. Maybe that means it runs small? Who knows. It was very body-con and I feel like I could have tried on the 2, but I knew the chest with be too big at that point. I stuck with the 0 and got TONS on compliments. I love the neckline and the color. The only con was that it rode up majorly when I walked. hat was annoying but that's life! Love the dress - want to own it.

Head turner in bright blue!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This fit true to size, and was a bit longer than I expected, which was good for a more formal wedding with family members. The bright blue popped against my dark features and I ended up having a random necklace that worked out perfectly with it. I think you could add any "statement" necklace. This brand makes nice curve hugging dresses, but since the fabric is sturdy and thick, it really holds you in and accentuates your assets :) I wore it from the wedding all through the night and it was never uncomfortable. Due to the cut of the top, I think a strapless bra works best!

Stunning dress, even better customer service

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This runs small, so I was afraid the only size available wouldn't fit, it was tight, but AMAZING. My gay friend even said I may have turned him straight. Great color, unique cut, stood out at my brother's wedding . My original choice was returned damaged, so this was a backup. Then the UPS truck broke down on the way to me so the delivery was late. But, as always, the RTR customer service made my stress turn into happiness.

This dress runs VERY small. I usually wear a 0 or 2, but had to go with a 4 (mostly so it would fit in the bust). I wore this to a wedding and got lots of compliments. The fabric and quality are great and I would definitely rent again.

Intended to wear for a weekend wedding.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I am new to Rent The Runway and this was my first order, and I ordered this in 2 sizes - a 0 and a 4 as my usual size 2 wasn't in stock at the time. The color is a stunning bright blue as other reviewers too have noted, and the cut of the dress is modern and eye-catching. However, a side note about my order - I was not notified beforehand my backup size 4 was not available and therefore am only left with size 0 (received my package with only 1 dress?), which I could not even get into. Please note girls, that this DOES run small, and whereas I'm usually either a size 0 or 2 depending on the designer and the fit I wish to achieve, HAD I received a size 4 it would've been a perfect fit!

Great color, sleek sexy dress!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This is my 3rd Elizabeth & James RTW Rental, and I have to say...the Olsen Twins know how to make a great dress! The dress is great for tall/pear/hourglass body types but as with all their other dresses, they fit very tight, so you may be more comfortable sizing up. I have sized up in all 3 of my rentals. The fabric is thick, but I still wore spanx to feel more confident in the tight fitting dress. You can move/dance/walk easily...overall I LOVED this dress and highly recomment.

Beautiful color, interesting neckline.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I knew it would run small, but even sizing up, the dress was tight and bunched up easily, especially around the hemline. Probably sizing up 2 sizes would have been too much, just wasn't the right fit for my body. Besides the tightness, I did enjoy the beautiful color of the dress and the nice cut of the neckline.

This is a gorgeous dress that feels so good on. It's a little long, but that doesn't matter because the style elements are so flattering. The material is high quality and the color would be gorgeous with a tan or without. Highly recommended!

Great dress but runs small

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for a summer wedding and the color/shape was fantastic but I didn't get a big enough size to comfortably wear. I will try renting this dress again in the future because the dress was really cute while on. It made me look long and lean as well. I would recommend getting a size or two bigger than normal

I got nothing but compliments on this dress! Easy to dance in and very comfortable!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small

The fit is tight but not uncomfortable. I chose the size two to fit a strapless bra but the zero did not feel unreasonably tight. I was worried the length would be too long on my short frame but it was perfect for the event.

I'm so glad I read the reviews before--it definitely runs small. I'm almost always a 4/6 and decided to order the 6 and 8 to be safe. The 6 did not zip over my chest without side boob spilling out! The 8 gave me room to breathe and I received compliments throughout the night. I wish I could wear it again!

This was my very first rental and this brand has become my new favorite. It could be dressed up or down and I opted for the latter. It was true to size and hugged every curve just right. Whether you are planning for a girls' night out, a formal, or date night, this dress is sure to wow. I originally thought the color would be too bright, but it was stunning! I received so many compliments that I was sad it had to be returned. I am officially in love with Elizabeth & James and RTR!

The color and the neckline of this dress were both really fun and flattering!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was beautiful for a late summer wedding. After some time in the sun the blue complimented my tan nicely. The neckline was great because it was unique and it was flattering for your arms. The length made it easy to pull off heels, and the asymmetrical hem also added an additional unique flare. Definitely not your typical dress! As for the fit... Many people mentioned it ran small. I wore my regular size and felt comfortable. I did add some spanx underneath, but only to smooth over the outline of my belly button (which they did).

The color is stunning in person -- perfect for a summer event. The neckline is very interesting, as is the hemline/finish of the dress. I definitely recommend wearing spanx underneath -- the dress leaves little to the imagination. The dress was incredibly fun to wear, the fabric was breathable, yet structured, and the length was appropriate for a wedding. Definitely will be renting this one again.

The color of the dress stood out and the fit of the top was different and beautiful!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
It ran a little small - I am typically a 0 but had to size up to a 1. Very fitted and GREAT fit if you have a small upper body/run cage. Fit my top perfectly because I have a small frame. One note is that the bottom got a bit twisted and I had to shift it and pull it down quite often. Otherwise it fit like a glove and wasn't gorgeous stand out color!

I loved this dress! It fit great-the only thing I will say is that the top overlay on the skirt twisted around sometimes and it was super tight-I would probably order up a size. I had to keep fixing it. But other than that, I got tons of compliments on it!

This dress is beautiful and fits like a glove!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented a size 0 and a 2 in this dress. I opted to wear the 2 so I could wear a strapless bra with it. Both sizes fit perfectly. I would have worn the 0 if I was going to go braless. The material of the dress is thick enough to wear no bra (maybe just some sticky cups). The cut in the front is very different and may not be flattering on women with large bust. I am a 32-34B cup and found that I had to pull up the front often so that my boobs didn't stick out the side (that's why I gave it a 4 star instead of 5). Otherwise the dress is very well made and is a beautiful blue! I would rent this dress again.
