Loved the experience from the moment I opened the package to the ease of sending the dress back!

The dress is so comfortable through the shoulders and torso, but runs a bit tight through the hips and butt. Still felt like a million bucket!

I wore this dress for my bachelorette party and loved it!

The size 2 fit, but was very tight. I sized up to 4 to give me a little more room and a little more length. The dress did ride up a bit as I wore it, so you will have to tug it down a bit. This dress does run small. It was very fitted and made me feel great!

This dress is hottt!!!

This is my new favorite RTR dress (given the appropriate occasion). I wore it for my bachelorette party and felt fantastic. Despite the dress being tight, it is somehow really flattering. I usually have a really hard time looking like I have a waist without some defined waistline, but this dress magically made me have a waist. It also somehow hides love handle imperfections, as I definitely do not have as smooth of a torso as this photo makes it look (and I didn't even wear Spanx). It is pretty short, which is really saying something because I am only 5'2" and dresses are usually long on me. I would totally rent this again and again.

LOVE this dress- great fit, great look

I wore this dress for my college formal, and I loved it!! I typically wear a 0, and that is the size I went with. The dress is really great quality, and even though it's very fitted, the lining of the dress is thick enough to prevent any unflattering undergarment lines. It's definitely a short dress, but I felt covered and comfortable.

It fits smaller and is very short. But it is a beautiful dress that will get you lots of attention!

It is so comfortable!

This dress fits beautifully! I don't why everyone is saying it runs small. I'm a true 0 and it fit me perfectly. The dress is not stretchy at all and the material is a lot thicker than it looks in the model photo. My only problem is that it is not nearly as silver as it looks in the model picture.

My daughter loved the dress and did not want to return it!

The dress seemed a little too tight for her to me, but she said that she was very comfortable in the dress. (I ordered the 0 for her without really knowing her size. ) She didnt end up wearing the dress as she wanted to go with a red dress instead. But She actually loved the dress and didnt want to send it back.

I wore this for my birthday night dancing, sadly this was the only photo evidence.

This fit like a glove. As other reviewers say, it runs small so size up. I'm normally a 6 and wore the 8. I wish I owned this and will probably rent it again. My boyfriend wishes I owned it too. I felt amazing.

Special event party sparkler

Wore this to an Xmas party and felt so festive, but you could wear this to any party and feel super special! The color is brilliant and the fabric doesn't show everything, it's somewhat thick. Really loved the fit! I wore it w blue earrings and loved the combo!

Great for my bachelorette party! (Runs small!)

I ended up going to the RTR store to exchange a dress that didn't fit and to try to find another one for my bachelorette party - I told the associate what I was looking for and that I was a size 4 and she brought me this dress in an 8. Definitely runs small, because the 8 fit perfectly. I loved the dress though - it was super comfortable, easy to dance in and perfect for my bachelorette party! Definitely the perfect party dress, just be careful about the size!

Loved it!

It was snug but not too tight at all, definitely had breathing room. It also rode up a little but it didn't bother me really. I absolutely loved the design and I wanted to buy it!

More conservative than I pictured

I rented this for a Vegas party weekend, but I think it's more for a wedding. It also was skin tight on me. I didn't wear it, opting for sequin dress, but would have wanted a larger size to be comfortable anyway.

Omg. Even sized up and couldn't move or bend.

Really, really not for me. So tight and so short, even though I ordered up a size. Not for women with hips or a butt. I couldn't even bend over.

Loved this dress!!

I LOVED this dress. It was actually a back up dress I got when the dress I rented didn't fit well. It was perfect for the wedding I went to. I was worried it was too "shiney" for a wedding, but it's not quite as metalic as it looks, which I was happy about. I have an athletic build, with curvy hips...and it fit my body perfect. It was run VERY SMALL, even for Elizabeth and James. I am typically a size 4, but wear a 6 in Elizabeth and James. I actually wore the 8 in this dress though...I couldn't even get the 6 on my body. It was also a little short and I had to pull it down a lot while I walked. But overall I loved this dress and got tons of compliments on it!

Compliments on compliments on compliments

I have an athletic, curvy shaped body so it's always hard to find tight dresses that make me look good, and this dress did it! It hugged in all the right places. Definitely would wear it again!! I am usually a size 2, but the dress I wore was a 4 and was still a little snug...but nonetheless it fit great.

Cute fun dress runs small

This is a very cute dress. The silver embellishments are fun but not over the top. Unfortunately I wasn't able to wear it because it ran small and I didn't have a back up size. I would recommend but SIZE UP!

Great New Years Eve dress

I normally wear a size 4, and have worn a size 4 in an Elizabeth James dress before. Rented the 8 after the reviews, and happy I did! Dress was very short, not sure if the length changes with size. Had a little extra room in the chest. It was perfect for New Years. Just, highly advise getting a size up.

Super Short!

I was worried this would be too big as they only had the 2 available for my selected dates - not only did it fit, it was snug and I'm always a size 0! This dress is shoooooort. Like super short. I was tugging at it all night. All in all, it was a super cute dress for NYE, just wish it was about an inch longer. :)

Fun dress for a holiday party

I loved this dress however it does run very small. I usually wear a 4, wound up wearing the 6 but would have preferred to wear the 8 but couldnt because there was a weird issue with the inside lining that kept flipping out at the bottom. Thats my only complaint, and the only time i've had any sort of an issue with a RTR dress. Just size up!!

Short and tight

I love the design of this dress but it ended up being too short for comfort so I didn't wear it. It was tighter and thinner than the other Elizabeth and James dresses I've worn in the past. Definitely have to wear a low profile nude underwear.

Hot, sassy, unique!

Love this- great quality of fabric that you normally don't get for a going-out dress that hugs your body so well. Normally I have some bunching or gapping issues, and this dress had none. It's a unique print in a color that looks great on most skin tones. Tempted to buy!

Perfect for a night out

This was a backup dress but I ended up wearing it out to dinner and a night of dancing and music in New Orleans! I wear a size 2-4 depending on the stretch of the fabric and the cut of the dress. It does run small per other reviewers and the fabric does not stretch at all so the size 4 ended up being a perfect fit. My boyfriend loved it! The only con was being tall, I had to pull it down a few times throughout the night like when going from sitting to standing but otherwise it stayed in place.

Short and Sexy

This dress is hot!! I'm pretty comfortable in sexy outfits, and even this length made me a bit nervous! It is extremely short, and rides up a bit. I'm barely 5'3, so, tall chicks beware! That being said, this dress is a showstopper. It fit like a glove. I could have went braless, and been fine. This would be a perfect New Years dress!

Super flattering party dress

This definitely runs small but once its on its super flattering and sexy. It is really tight and short which makes bending difficult but I didn't mind. Only issue I had was the zipper has nothing keeping it from sliding down so my boyfriend had to keeo zipping it back up throughout the night.

Beautiful dress. Got compliments :)

I normally wear a size 6 or 8, depending on how small or big sizes run. Size 6 in this case wouldn't even fit. Size 8 was on the tight side, but that's the style of this dress. It feels comfortable and looks great. I felt good in it.

Runs SUPER Small, Could Not Wear

This was my first strikeout ever with RTR. And it was also the only dress I have taken a risk on without a review from others or RTR themselves. I needed a dress for NYE and most of the ones I wanted were already taken a month in advance so definitely get those early fir future reference. The 6 sort of fit but I felt like I was pushing the age limit for trying to rock an incredibly short and tight dress. It wasn't flattering and flattened my chest as well. If you try this dress I recommend start with two sizes up.

I LOVED this dress, as did my husband! Everyone is right- it fits tight. I wore an 8 and thought I'd be a 6. It does ride up, too. But this dress is so fabulous, it's fine!

Sorority Semi-formal

This was my second RTR experience and unfortunately it was not as good as the first. Although the dress looks very shiny in pictures, it lacks shine in person. I still received complements, but I did not stand out as much as I'd hoped. Most importantly, this dress runs VERY VERY small. I usually wear a 4 or 6 in dresses and the 8 barely fit me. I'm glad I ordered the 8 as my backup though, because the 6 wouldn't even fit over my legs. It fit fine up top, but I would not recommend this dress for someone with bigger hips or thighs. I called to see if they could overnight me a size 10, but it was not in stock. I think if I would have been able to get the dress in the next size up, my experience would have been a lot better. One plus about this dress is that the material is very high quality and thick so it concealed my curves nicely.

Amazing dress for our wedding after party!

Sized up 1 size due to length. Typically I wear a size 2-4 in Elizabeth & James, however reading the reviews I opted for a 4-6 and decided to wear the 6 for added length!

Rented this for NYE but did not end up wearing it.

Pretty dress but it kept bunching right around my stomach making it look unflattering, at least to my eye. I usually wear a size 4/6 and the 8 was skin tight on me. I probably would have worn it if I didn't have a more comfortable back-up that I knew was easier to dance/move around in.

Business in the texture; party in the fit! A teeny tiny dress with metallic kick.

Really, this was crazy small. I could almost get away with it because of the suit-like material and the high neck. Had it fit right, I think it would get 5 stars. The quality blew me away.

Perfect for a New Year's party!

Pretty typical to Elizabeth & James dresses, this ran a bit small. I rented the 2 and the 4 and wore the 4. The fabric was thick and held its shape well. The metallic is a bit less prominent in real life than in the photos, but it was a great, classy option with a fun twist. Would recommend it!
