Great Dress, Runs Small

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I wore this to my Bachelorette Party. The style is on point, love the cut outs on the side! Runs small! I'm usually a size 4/6 but I bumped up to a 6 and 8 after reading the reviews. The 6 fit, but was a little too tight around the hips. I ended up wearing the 8 - even though it gaped a bit around the cutouts, it fit my bust area better. Overall this dress was a total hit... I'd rent again!

Felt sexy just two months after having a baby!!

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Party
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!

I wore this for my birthday. It was a cute tight dress but still comfortable enough to move around. The cute cutouts are are just enough and the cut of the back is perfect. The color is much more vibrant in person. I would rent it again!

Everyone was staring!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small

I decided to rent this and another Elizabeth and James for a few fun nights we had planned in Vegas while my mom was here for a visit (I'm a local). I wore this the night we saw 'O' at the Bellagio. I mean this in the absolute least conceited way possible, but EVERYONE was staring as we walked through the casino... this dress is unbelievably classy and sexy at the same time. I have rented more than 10 RTRs now, and I think this is likely the one that got the most compliments (this or the Nha Khanh Noir Timeless Love gown). I find this brand to run small (as have other reviewers), so I wore the 2 in both E&J dresses I rented for the weekend in lieu of my normal 0. Be careful with bras, mine kept sliding down and into the cutouts (as you can probably see in the pictures). Two thumbs up!

This was my first time using RTR and I absolutely loved the dress.

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Date
This was my first time using RTR and I absolutely loved the dress. I wore it to dinner and a play for Valentines Dress! The dress was really tight but fits great and true to size. I felt comfortable and confident in this dress all night. I gave the dress a 4 because it rides up a little in the stomach/ bottom of ribs. The dress doesn't allow you to era rights, underwear, or spans without being noticeable.

The best day of my life, with my three sons...the dress was beautiful and fit perfectly.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was being brave renting a dress for my son's wedding but I was going to use it as a last resort. Well, being that I hate to shop, I didn't find another dress and was relying on the dress I rented. The day I was to receive it, I was contacted by renttherunway representative and told that the dress was ruined and not available. The rep was wonderful when I told him my situation and he ended up sending me several dresses overnight. This happened to be one of them. I received it the day before the wedding and it was absolutely perfect for me. It could not have worked out any better than it did.....and I thank the representative who was so wonderful. I feel bad I don't remember his name.....sorry about that.

Gorgeous dress that is VERY tight!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is pretty and flattering. I received many compliments at the wedding I wore it to. It is however, TIGHT in the hips and butt. It doesn't look tight, but it was difficult to bend down or get out of the car because of the cut and there is no stretch to the fabric. I give this dress 5 stars for looks and 2.5 stars for comfort!

Beautiful color, great style!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress and was so excited to wear it, but unfortunately, it was really stretched out in the back/rear area. I think someone who rented it before had stretched it out. It looked good from the front, but was really loose on my lower back area. I ended up wearing the backup dress that RTR sent me since my backup size in this dress had been damaged.

Size worn: 0
Rented for: Formal Affair
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!

Sexy and classy all in one dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I did NOT want to return this dress!! So many compliments that I just loved it. It was definitely tight so I had to go with my true size and I couldn't wear a bra. Having stopped nursing a few months back I was worried about no bra. But the fabric was so comfortable and well made that I didn't need one. If you are getting in and out of a car it's a little tight but soooooo worth it! Would love to wear this again!!!

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

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Wedding
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.

I cannot tell you how amazing I felt in this dress! I wore this for a daytime wedding on a cruise ship. The color was vibrant and the picture just doesn't do it justice! The number of compliments I received was incredible! I felt the dress hugged in all the right places! It does run small so rent a size up. Other than that, the only downfall was that I had to return it! lol Rent this dress, you won't regret it!

Bright and form fitting!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for an island destination wedding with casual cocktail attire. It was PERFECT! The color is brighter than it appears in the photograph. My husband described it as "day glow" (but not in a negative way!) It was great for the summery, tropical weather. The cutouts were fantastic - not in unflattering places yet gave the dress an on-trend update from a traditional sheath. The front cuts in quite a bit, so I didn't wear any type of bra, strapless or regular, just silicone pasties. It worked for me just fine because the 0 was tight and thick enough through the bust so that I felt supported. The only slight negative was that the bottom was pretty tight to walk or climb stairs in. But, that's the price you have to pay for the sleek fit of the dress, which is generally (honestly) comfortable and stretchy! I rented the 2 as my backup size and felt it was almost as tight at the bottom as the 0 but just slightly roomier in the bust area, which did not suit my needs.

Got SO Many Compliments!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
I LOVE this dress! The color is the perfect bright coral, and I love the cutouts on the side. I was able to wear a strapless bra without it showing through the cutouts. I received compliments all night on it! The dress is very tight, but it stretches. It's very VERY tight in the back though. I was able to fit in the 4, but it fit everywhere except my booty, so I ended up wearing a 6. Even the 6 was really tight in the booty too, but I felt like I would have busted the seams in the 4! I'm short so the 6 kind of bunched up around my torso, and hit closer to my knees than the 4. There was definitely no way I could have danced or moved much in the dress, so I only wore the dress to dinner and a show in Vegas. Regardless, I would definitely rent this dress again.

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

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Wedding
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!

Felt even more beautiful than it looked!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was amazing. Listen to everyone when they say the legs are extremely tight. It took me a little getting used to when I was walking in my heels with the really tight skirt and it is definitely not a dress for dancing. I absolutely loved the way it fit and it was the perfect length. I was nervous it was going to be too long but it didn't ride up at all and was very comfortable. It is a thick material but even my seamless underwear showed through the back so be careful what you wear under it! My bust is a little small so the cut outs in the back fit awkward depending on the way I was standing but the overall fit was great.

Gorgeous color very tight in the hips

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Formal Affair
Okay, they other reviewers warned correctly that if you have hips, your backup size needs to be sized up. I'm usually a 4/6 in dresses but ordered a 6 and an 8. I ended up wearing the 6 and here's why: while it was tight across the hips and I was initially scared to wear it, it fit my bust and shoulders perfectly. The 8 fit my hips more comfortably, but was way too loose on the top. It looked very ill-fitting. So I decided on the 6 and I'm glad; it loosened up over the course of the night and was pretty comfortable. The color of the dress is much brighter than it looks in the picture on RTR. The cutouts were sexy and I got compliments all night long. I loved it and would rent it again.

This was a super cute dress! Very flattering but zips down while wearing.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The color is perfect for summer weddings and the material was thick enough to go without a bra if needed. The little cut outs weren't too revealing that you can pull it off at more formal events. Unfortunately, I had to knock off a couple of stars because the zipper in the back kept slowly unzipping down half of my back all night! It wasn't tight or anything, it actually fit perfectly, it just didn't have a hook at the top to keep up. It was really annoying and embarrassing. I had to keep having my girlfriends zip me back up every half hour when I was dancing. Such a downer to a very beautiful dress!

This dress fits snug - I ordered another style as well and was wearing a 4 comfortably and wore the 8 in this. The cutouts, like others have said, are very well-placed and are not trashy in any way. The length helps balance anything thats revealed in the back. The way the neckline is cut is very flattering as well. I got SO many compliments the day of and in pictures to follow.
