Loved it but...
I should have listened to other reviews. Runs very small. Also I am only 5'1" and it was super short. Wasn't comfortable. Beautiful dress though.

What up, hourglass?
I wore this dress for my birthday dinner with my boyfriend and both of us LOVED IT. It hugged every curve, smoothed where things needed to be smoothed, and felt like a million bucks. Elizabeth & James makes such high quality dresses, and I felt super pretty and never did it feel too tight during dinner, sitting down, or anything. The only issue I had was that there was some slight damage with the neck detail. A few of the beads were missing near the back. With my hair down, this wasn't a problem and I'm chill, so it's ok. But otherwise, this dress was perfection. Sizing, be sure to go up at least a size if not 2. I typically wear a 6 and the 10 was perfect.

Fun and sassy dress for my dental school prom!
This is a fun and sassy dress that runs true to size. Pretty short in length, which was to be expected since I am 5'10. Hugged in all the right places!

Beautiful dress!!
Beautiful dress! I have more of an hour glass figure and felt it looked amazing on. I will say it was a tad short when sitting, but I am just under 6'. Overall could not have been happier. Also I wore a strapless bra and had no issues with it showing.

Stunning color; standout shape. Perfect for Saturday night in Vegas!
E&J always runs a little small, so I sized up. Was really comfortable, shorter on my as I'm 5'11" but that fit the occasion. Comfortable to dance in and to site down in for dinner. Great fabric that stood up well, stretches, no wrinkles, loved it!

LOVED this dress! I'm normally a 6, but the 6 wouldn't go over my thighs and butt!! 8 fit perfect!
If you're normally a 6, but thicker in the hips- go for the 8! The dress was a lot shorter than in looks in photos as well, but still totally doable !

Senior Homecoming. We usually go all out for the event and it was a wonderful time.
Overall, the fit was amazing! Everyone loved the dress and it looked like it was made for me. Don't worry about the quality and the color, because both are impeccable! I am definitely going to order from this designer again. Pros: The fit (like a glove and spanx-like), color, the top (little jewelry part), the length, the material Cons: Runs small, very tight on the thighs- it makes it hard to move too much.

Beautiful, sexy but conservative dress - runs small!
This dress I ordered in a 2 and a 4 after reading reviews that it ran very small (I'm usually a 0). However the 2 was returned damaged so they could only send me a 4 - I was mad at first but then once I tried it on it fit perfect for the occasion - a work holiday party. Had it been for a different occasion I may have wanted it a little tighter but it fit perfect hugged the right places and was super comfortable & easy to dance in. Definitely rent if you have the chance!

Many compliments!
The color of this dress is beautiful, but definitely not a bright red. It's almost like an opaque watermelon jolly rancher - not pink, but soft and bright without blaring. The jewels on the collar didn't look as high quality or elegant in person. The sewing wasn't very subtle and was damaged. It looked like some of the embellishments were missing. I'm usually an 8 but may have lost some weight. The 6 and 8 both fit well, but the 8 was a bit boxy on me so I wore the 6. Once it's on and you're out, the collar isn't really an issue; I got so many compliments! Like other dresses by this designer, the fabric is soft, sturdy and snug so that it feels and looks great! It's thickness also makes sure you're not going to freeze or show too much of your undergarment lining. The vertical seam from my tights probably showed through though. Because my bust is on the large side, I had to wear a bra. I chose a racer back so no straps showed, but there was some side bra! Unfortunate, but the shape was terrible without a bra! With the bra, I felt sexy, gorgeous, slim and elegant! It was a perfect way to subtlety show off at my friend's wedding.

Stunning!
This dress was actually sent to me as a back up when the original dress I ordered for my engagement photos was returned damaged. It is really gorgeous on and very flattering. I am usually a true 0 in dresses, but the 2 in this was really perfect and I don't think I could have squeezed into a 0. The color is more of an orangey-red than a true red, but it's really pretty and unique. The fabric on this is thick and high quality, that also helps to smooth out imperfections ;). Despite fitting like a glove, I feel like I can move well in it, there is a silk lining that is sewn into place (love when they do that so it doesn't slide around and bunch up) - I think the lining helps with mobility because the dress moves easily against your skin. Highly recommended. I would definitely size up for your free back up, I have tried on about 20 RTR dresses and have never needed a 2 before this dress :).

Loved the color of this dress!
My second RTR and my second time wearing Elizabeth and James. I loved this dress just as much as my first rental! I typically wear a 0 or 2 but went with the 4. The 2 would have been too short and I felt more comfortable in the 4! I received lots of compliments. I will definitely rent this designer again!

Dress arrived on time, perfect condition.
Little snug around the hips/thighs area. I have a small waist and medium bust and the top fit perfectly.

SUPER tight
Thankfully this was a backup dress and not my go-to dress. The dress I ended up wearing was a size 2 BCBG dress. The 6 in this dress was extremely tight and showed curves in all the wrong places.

great color and cut
The color is beautiful and vibrant (more red than orange) and is a great cut. It runs small though so order a size or two up. I will rent again.

I felt glamorous and elegant but still on trend.
The red is amazing and such a unique dress with the collar. I definitely stood out and was the only girl in red which was great. The dress does run a little small, I'm usually a 6/8 and this was a 10 and fit like a glove. This was my first experience with RTR and it was amazing.

You and I are about the exact same size and I am contemplating getting this dress for a Holiday party. Do you happen to have a picture of yourself in it? I usually wear a 6 Do you think I can do a 6 or a 8? Did the dress ride up on you at all? Do you think it will ride up while dancing?

The red is stunning and the jeweled neckline is unique & fun
I wore this to a cocktail-attire event. I love the fabric of all Elizabeth & James dresses. It's breathable, but thick and forgiving. I gave 4 stars bc it was a little short. Usually when I wear something more exposed on the top, I like it balanced with at least a little above the knee, but this was mid-thigh. Also, the "bejeweled" neckline kind of casualizes it. They're like little mirrored pieces. With that being said I had so many compliments and loved it.

fun little dress!
I was a little hesitant renting this dress which had no reviews at the time, but it ended up exceeding my expectations. The color is more of a blood orange than a red, which was exactly what I wanted for my event in the Fall. The dress fit me well! It is quite short, which I don't mind. I would say it fits true to size/slightly bigger so you may want to size down for your back-up size. There is some stretch to it. I wore it with silver shoes and accessories which I think was most flattering with the dress color and the details around the neck.
