Loved it, once I got the right fit.
Size worn: 38
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for my friend's spring-time wedding. It's a gorgeous dress, the color is different and stunning (make sure you love orange! ;)), and the fit was perfect on me after I got the 'right' one. This was my first time renting from Rent the Runway. Originally I ordered the yellow version of this dress, and could only get the 38 with no back up 2nd size because the 40 was already booked. I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best...but unfortunately it just would not zip up around my bust/rib cage (and I am by no means busty). My mom tried, I tried...just would not close. The gap was too wide, plus the thick, ruched fabric did not help. However, customer service was AWESOME. The nice lady I spoke to overnighted the orange version of the dress, in both 38 and 40 to the hotel I was staying at out of town. The 38 in the orange ended up fitting perfectly, while the 40 was a little too baggy. Weird, but sometimes the same dresses in the same size do fit just a hair differently. Anyway, it worked out just fine at the end, and I got loads of compliments all night long! Thanks Rent the Runway!!!
