Fun, Beautiful Dress!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress was my first pick, but the largest size available was an 8 (I'm usually closer to a 12). Looking at the reviews, many people said that the dress ran large, so I decided to try the 8 anyway, and then got a backup dress in 2 sizes figuring I'd likely end up wearing one of those. Well, neither of the "backup" dresses fit, but this did -- beautifully!
The material is stretchy with extra material to cover problem areas, such as a tummy pooch. It was amazingly comfortable. I wore it out dancing for a bachelorette party, and I got compliments all night long.
Because the dress was so flowy, there were a few pictures that did not come out super flattering because of the way the material hung - it made me look larger than I actually was, however straight-on photos came out pretty well.
I would rent it again. I felt beautiful, I was comfortable, and for better or worse -- I was wearing a dress that was 2 sizes smaller than I would typically wear. I'll take it!
