I received so many compliments on the dress all night, from both women and men.
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
We were going to a white party, and I didn't know where to turn for wardrobe as I usually wear lots of color. A friend recommended RTR and I'm so glad to know about it. I am usually a 4, so ordered the 4R in this dress, along with a dress by Angel Sanchez in a 4R and 6R. The 2 size 4s were a little tight, and the AS size 6 fit, but the boning inside was coming out and poking into my waist. I called RTR on Friday afternoon to talk to someone about this, and she apologized and was incredibly helpful. They did not have the Angel Sanchez dress, but she sent me this dress in a 6R, along with another Badgley Mischka dress in 4 and 6. Cannot say enough about RTR service and how they made my experience less stressful.
This dress is very flattering. As a mom of 2, I'm conscious of how my body has changed and I'm still learning how to dress it in its new state. :) I did use fashion tape on the shoulders and along the bust line to make sure there were no peek-a-boo incidents. It's long for my size between the shoulders and the waist line, hence the fashion tape. I'm nearly 5'3" and this dress was a little long for me overall, I wore 4 inch heels with it. Something you should know, and frankly, it's my experience anytime I wear a dress with an invisible zipper going over a seam - it is really difficult to zip this zipper, as the waistline seam is very taut. Be prepared to work at it, and keep the zipper together as you zip. I wouldn't have been able to do it myself.
I look forward to the next occasion to rent from RTR!
