Cute, cute, cute dress
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I wore this dress for my 41st birthday dinner at Trader Vic's in Atlanta, and I picked it because the bright tropical flowers would be fun against Trader Vic's Polynesian/Tiki-themed decor. I rented sizes 10 and 12, and wound up wearing the 10.
"It's short," my husband said to me. Yes, it is short. I loved the dress, but it is short.
I also found it somewhat on the small side. I'm pear-shaped and don't think of myself as big-busted, but the 10 was a trifle tight. I wore it and not the 12 because the pleated skirt on the 12 was just way too poofy.
It's a lovely dress, able to be worn with a regular bra, which I love, and the pockets are perfect for my cell phone and tissues or whatever.
I'm not sure I'd rent it again,but I did love it, despite it feeling a tiny bit tight in the bust and waist and being short. It's got beautiful colors and was absolutely perfect for the occasion.
