This yellow really POPS! Fellow wedding guests couldn't help but take notice and give compliments!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
My rental experience was good and bad. First off, many kudo's to the RTR customer service team. Although I had a few issues with this dress, they were very prompt in addressing them. Looks-wise, this dress is beautiful. The color really stands out (even in a sea of colors) and the fabric is very delicate. So delicate, in fact, that I discovered several visible snags on the front of the dress. (This was when I emailed RTR for an alternate. Long story short, I ended up having to wear the one with the snags, but was credited back my rental). Fortunately, you can't see it in the photos that much!
Fit-wise, I borrowed a 8 and 10. The 8 proved to be quite snug and the boning of the corset top poked out by the waist (quite pinching). The 10 was much easier to manage. There was a rubbery grip that lined the top inside so it prevented slipping.
I wore this to an outdoor wedding and it was boiling that day. Everyone was sweating and I was no exception. Fortunately, even after sitting for nearly an hour, the dress handled the heat. Thank. God.
