The dress is absolutely divine! I really could not be any happier!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Fit - I made the mistake of ordering two different lengths instead of two different sizes. I ordered a 2R and a 2L, when instead I should have rented a 2R and a 0R. But all in all, with the help of (a lot of) fashion tape, the fit was wonderful! However, I will continue on the thread that the dress is a bit airy around the torso, but personally, that didn't bother me at all.
Pros - The dress is absolutely divine! I really could not be any happier! This dress is one of those very subtle but sophisticated and classy dresses. The one-shouldered ruffle is wonderful as well -- just the right amount of dramatic and not at all obnoxious. The color is also darker than the model picture, but the dark navy really plays to the sophisticated and classy side of the dress.
Cons - The only downside to this dress, and I will also continue on the other thread, is that the dress is longer in the back. Seeing as how I wore this dress to my prom, I did run into the occasional problem of having the train of the dress stepped on (both my other people and by myself). Though this problem could be remedied with taller heels.
Highlights - I really just felt so sophisticated and classy. I loved walking in this dress and receiving the second glances and compliments from people. And specifically pertaining to my prom, I really felt like I stood out because whereas other girls would be bedazzled or in sequins or layers, I felt like this dress really stood out in its subtly; and you can easily play it up or down. Really, just sososo satisfied and happy with the way this dress helped me define my prom night!
