Effortlessly Beautiful Dress
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was absolutely gorgeous! Because the size guildelines on RTR weren't too specific, when I fell in love with this dress with only a size 6 left in stock, I found the size guidelines on BCBG's website, and I could fit a 6! The only problems with this dress was extra space left in the chest (6 was likely built for a C, I'm an A or a B), and the length. The dress is meant to hit the floor/puddle/trail a bit, but because I'm between 5'2" and 5'3" it puddled a lot more than it's meant to. Once I got the dress (only one size, the 4 would likely have been better) I realized there was nothing to be done, so se la vie. The fit around the waist was beautiful, though the dress could have been more snug without a problem (as said, the 4 would likely have been better, if it had been in stock!). For dancing at the prom, I just lifted the skirt (and for walking too--I practiced beforehand a bit and it worked perfectly).
Also something you can't tell from the picture--the under skirt is form-fitting and a beautiful golden color.
Overall, you'll need fashion tape (note: do not adjust this stuff once you put it on, just leave it and trust it), some tall heels, and I paired it with dangly silvery/purple earrings. And like that, it's done and you have become a princess. Enjoy this gorgeous dress!!
