Beautiful color and cut!
This dress is so sexy and the color is amazing. This was a back up dress because my original dress became unavailable. Thanks to RTR's amazing customer service, I will be able to wear this beautiful magenta dress to celebrate my birthday tomorrow night. It runs true to size. They only had a 2 available but the 0 would have probably fit me better. Next time I rent this dress (and there will be a next time!) I will get the 0.

So flattering and fun! Would rent 100 times
Fits very snug (like all Elizabeth and James) but fabric is very thick and has a tiny bit of stretch so is very flattering. I fit into the 4 and 6, 6 fit on the bottom half but was a little loose on top so went with the 4 even though it was snug in the hips. Had so much fun in this dress - will definitely rent again!

Beautiful color!
The color is so vibrant and eye catching! However, like others have said it runs small. If you're in between sizes, I would size up.

Great cocktail dress
I wore this dress to a summer wedding and loved it. It's very form fitting but the fabric is thick and the length is modest, so I felt very comfortable and wedding appropriate. The color is beautiful and really pops. Be sure to size up for your backup size because this does run small.

Perfect classy yet sexy dress for a wedding!
I wore this dress to a co-workers wedding recently and received so many compliments! The color ins't as bright as pictured, which I thought was a good thing. This is a VERY fitting dress and I would highly recommend ordering a size up. I read the reviews and ordered a size up for my backup size however, I wish I would have ordered a size up for my regular size, and two up for my backup. I ended up wearing my backup size but it was extremely tight. Overall, loved the dress!

Vibrant color and flattering
I received So many compliments on the dress. From it's fit to the design cut on bottom, I will definitely be renting this dress again. Form fitting but still felt comfortable to sit in and dance. I ended up wearing the 8, didn't even try on the 6 because it fit like a glove on me. You can wear a necklace or go without but I thought a necklace complimented it more. I wore with nude shoes. Highly recommend this dress for any occasion.

Wore to a wedding. Received so many compliments! Highly recommend
I wore this to a (formal) springtime wedding. Definitely needs a strapless bra. Also, I opted for one of those sticky/gel cup bras because the outline of my usual strapless bra (underwire) was visible. Runs small, especially in the bust and backside. I would recommend sizing up if you have prominent curves. I ended up wearing size 2 in this dress, but the 4 would have allowed more mobility. For reference, I'm 115 lbs, 5' 4", 34A bra size, and usually wear a size 25 in jeans.

Gorgeous Dress! but does run a bit small.
Wore this for a night out in Vegas for my girlfriend's bachelorette party. I received so many compliments. The fit was so flattering and the color is a beautiful pink. I am 5'4" 140lbs and a 34DD and am normally a size 6/8 and wore the size 8. I had ordered a size 10 as well based on reviews but it wasn't available. I probably could have gone with the 10 but the 8 worked out, I just couldn't wear a bra, which was fine because the fabric is thick enough, and had to wear thin thin spanx underneath as even lines from a thong showed through. Overall loved loved this dress and wish I could buy it!

Great fit, color, and style!
I'm athletic built with broad shoulder and was nervous the cut would look bad since A-lines tend to look bad on me, but the neckline actually worked out great! The dress was a bit snug and I might've gone a size up, but everyone said the 6 looked good on me - which is my normal size. I would say if you like things painted on get your normal size, but if you like a looser fit definitely get a larger size. Also, the dress was made out of great material and hid any problem areas.

I wore this dress to a family party. I LOVED this dress! I got so many compliments from friends and family. As previous reviews noted, the dress does fit snug, but I felt it was definitely true to size. It was the perfect outfit for the occasion!

The Color and Cut!
This dress is tightly fitting but oh so flattering! Its color is perfect and a personal favorite. The material is stretchy enough but lined and thick so despite the tight fit, wearing this dress didn't feel uncomfortable or tacky. I'd definitely rent your normal size and a size up.

Great dress!
I wore this dress to a charity work event. Loved the dress!! Great color and cut! Got lots of compliments. Definitely ran a little small. I typically wear a 4 in fitted dresses and had to go with the 6 (and even the 6 was a little more snug than I wanted for a work event). The fabric is a little thicker which means there really isn't any stretch, but it also makes it look like a much nicer dress. All and all it was a fantastic dress. For some reason my profile won't update. I am 5'7", 130 or so pounds, 32DD bust, and an hourglass shape.

Beautiful Dress
This was a beautiful dress. However it ran very small. I usually wear a 0-2 and JUST squeezed myself into the 4. Even though the dress was tight on me, it was surprisingly still really flattering. Great material!

Fun evening dress
Elizabeth and James make high quality, versatile dresses. I wore this twice to dinner. The color gives you a fun way to stand out. I usually wear size 0 but went with a 2. I think 0 may have worked too, but would have been very tight on me.

Fab cocktail dress
Got tons of compliments on this dress. The color pops! It was a little tight around the waist so I went with the higher size 8 instead of a 6. The larger size fit well on the waist but then the chest was a tad loose. I'd totally recommend this dress.

Great quality & color!
The material for this dress is thicker and does not ride up as you walk. I usually wear a 2 (I couldn't even get the 2 zipped!), but I ordered the 4 as well based on the reviews. You should DEFINITELY order one size up. I wore this to a friend's rehearsal dinner and received lots of compliments!

This dress is beautiful -- the color looks even better in person than online. While I usually wear a size 6, it's *very* form-fitted and I wished I'd ordered the 8 as a backup size.

Great Dress for all types of Occasions!
I wore this to an afternoon show and dinner with my mom for my birthday. I dressed it down with tall boots and a sweater. It is definitely a tighter dress so order a size up. You'll need a strapless bra since a regular one would show. I also got the Pave the Way Earrings which looked great!

When you're looking for a surefire dress style and fun color for a wedding
I fit into the 2 & 4, but went with the 2 because it was more tailored to my body and height (4 was a lot longer and larger cut in the bust) Pros: Great shade dress made of a quality, heavy and stretchable material, classic yet updated style with added interest at the neckline, back and hem, fitted in the right areas to create a great silhouette Cons: Tighter than ideal around the thighs which made dancing a little tougher, I have a small bust so the dress fit best at the top when I wore a strapless bra which isn't super convenient, I seemed to faintly feel slight tightness in the front neckline throughout the evening Might be a good idea to wear some shape wear underneath

Great color! Order a size up.
I usually wear a size 4, but ordered the 6 as a backup. The 4 fit snug, not including eating or drinking yet. The 6 was comfortable and I didn't have to "suck it in" to enjoy food & drinks at the wedding.

I am glad I got the size 6. The 4 fit fine in most places, but I have a wider back and it was a little snug there. The color really stood out.

Loved this dress! Perfect for New Years Eve!
The fit is sexy and super flattering! I have a small bust and larger hips, so I did tend to have to adjust it around my hips a bit. I wore the 4 because the 6 was too big--I normally wear a size 4 jean. Received a ton of compliments! Would def recommend.

I ordered a size 2 & 4, and the 4 was perfect. This dress is fitted. I'm 5'7" and 125 lbs and the 4 was a perfect fit. The quality is great, material is thick. It arrived on time and was easy to send back.

Beautiful design & color - but size UP!
Dress color is incredible. The cut around the neckline, sleeves and hemline is unique and flattering. As per the other reviews, the dress runs SUPER tight. I am normally a size 6 or 8 -- I'm very slight on top with small waist, but thicker on bottom. I knew I'd need a size 10 (after reading all the reviews), but they didn't have one available on the date I needed it, so I took a chance on size 8. It fit - but barely. There is little give/stretch. It was tight across my hips and thighs and rode up a little bit as I walked -- but still looked stellar. Would have felt more confident in size 10.

I wore this dress to a formal wedding.
Loved this color and the dress was a huge hit!! This brand runs VERY small-- I'm always the smallest size in ANY brand and I'm so glad I ordered both the 0 and the 2 just in case. I am a 32d and the bust fit great and I think I was even able to wear a criss/cross bra, which was a huge plus! The length was just right-- sometimes knee length dresses make me look stumpy but was wowed by how amazing this dress was.

I'm in love with this dress!!!
I've been incredibly sick lately and was bedridden for about a month. This dress was the first thing I got to wear out in a while and I felt so sexy and comfortable in it. The material is thick so it really forgiving… No need for spanks or anything like that. <3

Form fitting and flattering
This size runs a little small. I normally wear a 2-4 and a 6 was pretty snug. The cut of the dress was pretty flattering and I loved the color. Another great piece from Elizabeth and James!
