The color and upper design made it an edgy dress for a night out.
I love this designer. The dress color made my blue eyes stand out and my fair skin obsolete. I didn't wear a bra with it since my halter bra straps showed. I was debating the 2 or 4 but the 2 wasn't available at the time. Plus I was on vacation and wanted room to indulge. This dress is meant to be fitted and it was just a little less fitted than I would like but that didn't keep me from wearing it out to dinner with my man. He loved it.

Sexy dress, great color, runs a bit small and short in the torso.
I loved this dress even though the fit wasn't quite perfect on me. I have a pretty long torso, so the zipper in the back poked out a bit where the curve of the butt would be on a slightly more normal length torso. However, it is somewhat stretchy and was workable. I am usually a 0-2 in a lot of the RTR brands, and this one I got in a 4 and wouldn't have wanted to go smaller. I am slightly smaller up top, and this fit great there and a tiny bit snug on the bottom. The cut of the bottom part of the dress can lead to a bit of awkward pulling, but I found it stretched a bit after wearing and conformed some to my shape. It's a great dress that I would happily own, although I might get it in a 6 and have the top tailored to fit smaller if I were to purchase. I found the cut of the top to be quite flattering, but you will be showing off your arms and shoulders. My shoulders are a smidge narrow but pretty fit, as are my arms, so I loved it. I am also not very busty, so I didn't have a problem with any armpit smoosh showing (might be an issue if you're busty). I wore it with a strapless bra, no problem. The dress is nicely lined with some stretch, so in the correct size, it is not clingy, just form fitting.

Gorgeous dress and I got so many compliments
I loved everything about this dress! The color was gorgeous (though I think a little darker shade than the photo online) and the material was high quality so it was thick enough to not show bra or pantyline. I don't think I've ever received so many compliments on an outfit. The dress is very tight fitting, so I'm glad I ordered a larger size as backup. I typically wear a 4 but I didn't even try to squeeze in after trying on the size 6. I'm 5'4", 130 lbs, 32DD with muscular legs so the tight fit was across the hips & legs. The cut for the arms didn't allow for wearing a bra with straps but fortunately the tight fit helped hold a strapless bra in place.

Great color lots of compliments!
Wore it to a wedding. Both sizes fit But I went with the bigger size because it runs very small and I just wanted to be comfortable rather than wear anything tight. Delivered when promised and return was easy. Will definitely use RTR again and would recommend this dress!

Gorgeous dress, just a bit tight!
Dress was beautiful, fit really well, but tight! Definitely go up a size for your backup. Had I gotten the 4, I may have worn that instead. It's very tight in the chest area, but great fabric and sexy without being over the top!

Really fun cocktail dress!!
It runs just a little bit on the smaller size, but overall fit well! I'm 5'3 and the length was perfect! Not too short and not long. A little tight on my butt area, but not bad! The larger size would have been too big for me.

Fun in Fuchsia!
Wore this dress to a wedding and I loved it! It rose up a bit when I was dancing and walking but overall the fit was great. I usually wear a size 4 but after reading the reviews I'm glad I sized up.

Adorable, but Runs Smll
I was so excited about this dress! I loved the symmetry of the dresses design and the color "spoke" to me! When it arrived, I was so excited to try it on. I was able to wear it, but the fit was too snug for my taste and made me feel as if I was showing too much. I did not wear this outfit to the event, but I was able to rent another dress and received tons of compliments at the wedding!

I loved this dress. I got this in a 4 and 6. The 6 had weird bunching on the side seam but fit better. Aside from the seam being a off, this dress was gorgeous and I got a ton of compliments.

unflattering
i love the color of this dress and E&J is one of my faves. unfortunately the way the bottom was cut made the material bunch and the the pulling around the hips was accentuated. i didn't wear.

This definitely ran small. Went with the larger size and still probably could've gone up one! Great material, design, and fit. First thing I rented on RTR and would definitely rent it again!

Comfortable and fun!
This was my first time using RTR and I absolutely loved the experience. The description for this dress was spot on, being that the dress runs small and one should order the next size up. When I wore this dress to a cocktail attire wedding, I received many compliments about the style and color. One con would be the overall tightness which made undergarment lines visible. Despite the tightness, I'd highly recommend this dress to others!

You won't regret renting this dress
Love this dress! The material is thicker but breathable, I wore it on an 85 degree day and didn't have an issue. It does run small. I'm usually a size 6 and it did fit but it was uncomfortable so I went with the 8 and it was great. This dress can do no wrong. Just rent it. You won't be disappointed.

Amazing color for a Mexico wedding fiesta!
This fits like a glove. It's stretchy enough to be comfortable. The only bad part was it was way too warm for the hotness that was Mexico. I sweated right through it! Still looked amazing until then ;) Doesn't hide anything so only rent if you want something skin tight that stands out.

Amazing dress
I definitely wore spanx under this dress, which actually helped using the restroom because the dress is quite snug. I rented a 4 and 6 to be safe. Wore the 4, and worked great!

Comfortable, Bright & Perfect for a Wedding!
This dress was a hit! The fabric was comfortable and stretchy and the color was absolutely gorgeous (true to the picture). In terms of size, I normally wear a 0/2 and I wore the 2. It's definitely snug especially if you are wearing a strapless bra underneath it. The length was great and it was sexy but not too much for a wedding. I received many compliments and am really happy with my choice! Highly recommend - it's very flattering but size up for your backup just in case!

Great dress, runs small.
This dress has a gorgeous fit. It does run small. I wore the 2 but I should've ordered a 4 instead. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Fun dress
Flattering dress, definitely runs small. Not the greatest for a bigger bust though, I am 5'6, 120 lbs and 34d and ended up wearing the 4. I had to buy a special padded bra just to wear the dress so my boobs didn't disappear. The dress was so tight in the top that it smooshed them flat. I received lots of compliments on it, overall fun to wear.

Great dress
This was my first RTR dress, and I'm so glad for everyone's reviews. Typically I am a size 4, but everyone suggested ordering up a size. I got the 6 and 8, thinking the 6 would be fine. I wore the 8, and it was still a little tight in the chest. Overall very nice dress, will absolutely chose RTR for my next event.

Felt beautiful on the inside and outside
Deff is a form fitting little number and that is what I loved about it. The color is vibrant and bright berry color! It's tight fitting but breathable. I wish I could own this dress! I am petite and it came just above the knee. Perfect dress in every way!

Great color, unique cut
As other reviews stated, the fit was small. However, I only had to size up by one size and the dress was very flattering. It was sexy yet classy and I could dance comfortably in it. Loved this dress!

Ran small, but I loved it!!
Rented this dress for a graduation ceremony. I'm usually a size 2 or 4 but I sized up per the reviews (and from the advice of friends who rented the same dress) and the 6 fit perfectly. The fabric was thick enough to not need any special undergarments, and despite the form fitting cut it was super easy to move in. I want to rent this dress in all the other colors now!

Wasn't the perfect fit but still worked!
I rented the size 6 because most of the reviews stated this dress ran small and my usual size 4 wasn't available. I have a booty but no chest and sizing up was probably the way to go but it felt loose up top. You can see in the photo from that where the dress folds and bunches up in loose areas around my chest, I choose to share this pic to point out the flaws I had. But there are other photos where the dress looks great. Overall, it was a great dress and wasn't too bad for a hot summer day, and I doubt if I had gotten the size 4 that it would've fit around my butt yet I'm a little disappointed the 6 wasn't perfect. However I still got plenty of compliments. The dress was beautiful and it worked for the wedding I was attending.

I loved this dress so much!! So bright and vibrant. I will say that I sized up based on other reviews that said it for snug.. And I regret it. I usually wear a 2, and ordered a 4 and a 6. I wore the 4 but I wish I had the 2. All in it was very comfortable and the length was great.

Beautiful dress!
Usually I am in between a size 2 and 4. The size 2 dress fit me perfectly, but I can understand how someone with a larger chest or hips would need to size up. The color was beautiful.
