Very Tight

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a LA work trip. I thought it was the perfect color and style for California. Since it was the second style I rented I only got 1 size and I rented the size 2. I am normally a size 2 in most brands, but this must be the exception. It was skin tight. I probably needed the size up. The color is great, but warning go up a size in this dress. Also, it is long dress. I am tall and it was hitting my knees.

I LOVE this dress! The color is gorge, and a great length!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I am a tall pear, so larger on the bottom. I had to wear the size 10 so it would fit over my butt, although that made the mid-section a little loser which was fine and didn't really show. The cut outs are just sweet enough that this is okay for a wedding, with the longer length. Since I am tall, the length made the tight-curvy fit more appropriate for a wedding, but if you are looking for a shorter dress w/ cutouts, this isn't the dress. I wore spanx and strapless bra, and found the dress to be very figure flattering. Highly recommend this dress if you are on the taller side!

I love this dress!! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to wear it because it was a smidge to small on me. They only had a size 0 available and I needed a 2. In general though the color is vibrant, the material is comfortable, and the length is perfect for dancing. I will rent this again when the time is right!

Rented two Elizabeth & James dress options for a recent spring wedding

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I typically wear a size 4 or 6 depending on the style of dress, however, this one when I put it on was so tight across the hips. I do have a small waist and a bit of a booty - so if you have hips and a butt, this dress may not work for you, or, possibly go up a size. It's very cute and bit brighter pink than the picture.

This was a super fun and sassy dress! My only complaint would be that it does run a tad small. Im usually a size 2 or 4 in dresses and ended up wearing the 6. Other than that, it was a hit!

I wanted to love this dress so badly, but it just didn't work for me. Had to send it back.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress really is beautiful in person, but when I put it on it was a different story. It runs smaller than other E&J dresses I have worn in past (so size up if you try it). The material is not forgiving in the stomach area so even the smallest pooch will show. Also, the cut outs are right in the area where most women tend to have the most fat. I am not large by any means, but unfortunately this dress just didn't work for my body type. However, I think this dress would look stunning on someone smaller who is in great shape. If that's you, I think it's worth giving it a try but have a back up.

Lots of Compliments

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Beautiful dress and received a ton of compliments on it! The dress was a little snug in the hips and butt area but the size 4 fit exactly the same but was baggy where the cut outs were. I would recommend no bra with this if you can because even a racer back bra showed on the sides by the arms.

Beautiful, Many Compliments, Doesn't go Unnoticed

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Ok so Im glad i read the reviews beforehand because I would have never thought to order a 6. Im usually a 4 and 2 in many designers including Alice and Olivia. I wore the 6 because I couldnt breathe in the 4. The 6 was still very tight. I wore a strapless bra with it which pushed my skin in the side holes so be careful...better to go braless. But overall, the dress itself is gorgeous and I received tons of compliments. Also, it really stands out considering the neon coral in a dark room of little black dresses. Loved the dress, just eat a salad for a few days before wearing.

Overall fit: True to Size

I was a zero pre baby and am a zero now. However, things fit differently. This dress fit my now curvier body in all the right places and was so bright and fun! It did bunch by the cutouts but that seems normal to me. I let it bunch while I danced and pulled it down when I was done. It is tight, size up if you are on the fence with fit or are bigger in the hips than bust.

Great dress, got so many compliments, color was fantastic for a summer wedding!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Fit was tight. I am usually between a 4 and 6 and the 4 fit...but was way too tight. The 6 was form fitting, but didn't feel like it was sucking the air out of me. The color, like most people said, was a lot brighter in person, like a neon coral, and was so fun. The cutouts were great, not too over the top, but just sexy enough. The length was perfect, hitting slightly above the knee. Dresses these days are being made so short that for some 5'7" it gets hard to find something appropriate. This dress fit the bill. My favorite rental so far!

Just the right amount of sexy

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is amazing. The material is so nice and it fits tightly (but not too tightly) in all of the right places. I got so many compliments all night. My only criticism is that its tight around the knees so sitting was a little challenging. The dress loosened up throughout the night though making this easier.

Perfect color and perfect size. Rented for anniversary dinner while on vacation. Very form fitting so make sure you have seamless undergarments. A little tight at the hem but slit in back makes it easy to walk. Cut puts are very flattering. I love my arms and shoulders so racer back styles always look nice on me -- this dress was perfect to highlight my favorite features in myself. My husband loved it. Wish I could keep it! My favorite rental so far!

I wore this dress for a night out in Vegas and it was great! The fit was tight, but true to size. I like that although it was quite tight, it was a little longer so as not to show too much skin. The cutouts make it so you can't wear a regular bra, so plan to wear a sticky bra or something similar. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Loved the color, loved the fit. The only "issue" if there is one is that it should probably be worn with a strapless bra but a regular bra makes the silhouette look much better. I wore a criss cross strap bra and a little fashion tape. Wonderful solution! Tons of compliments and I definitely stood out in a good way! WILL rent this dress again! Wore with nude pumps.

This dress is great! One thing to note, the dress is much pinker than the picture shows. It does run small so I would go a size bigger than you normally wear, however, the dress material stretches more and more as the night goes on. Since the dress is skin tight, make sure you have seamless undergarments! Would wear this dress again in a heartbeat, thanks #rtr!

Standout color

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
As mentioned by many others, this runs small so go one size up. I absolutely loved the color - it was incredibly flattering on olive skin - and the shape was beautiful. Material does have a little bit of stretch, and longer length was wedding-appropriate. I was pretty crazy about this dress but ultimately wound up wearing my backup instead - I have a pear shape with a bit of a booty and that made the dress gap in the back at the cutouts. Wasn't sure if that would get annoying while dancing, etc so chose to go with a safer, snigger fit instead.

This dress is perfect for a date night, cocktail party or any event where you don't mind standing out :) The color is a really cute, bright pink, and the dress is a perfect length, it hit at my mid-thigh but didn't feel too short or provocative. The back has a fun cut-out, and is very flattering. The dress is very tight, so your undergarments have to be seamless, but I definitely recommend it! I have worn other dresses in this brand and been impressed every time.
