Perfect meld of black tie preferred with holiday sparkle
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Wore the dress to a private club dinner where it was the perfect balance of black tie without being overly formal. A long version would have been "too much" for the event. The dress was wonderful - arrived clean, pressed and fit just as other reviews have described. I'm a bit long-legged for my height and it could have used my tacking the shoulders as the top was a bit large (I'm a 36D and it was a little gappy). Being post-baby, it hid all the tummy sins - I'm a hip 12 still, but based on reviews went with the 10. With the tightest Spanx, probably could have gone 8. Taping wasn't right, and if I had more of a plunging neck bra, it would have been fine. My entire RTR experience was fantastic! I'll be renting again for 2 weddings in 2013, and am so excited to do so.
