Thanks to the styling advice from RTR I wowed the crowd!
Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was AMAZING!! This was my prom dress and it totally stood out! It really makes you look and feel sexy. I ordered the 2L and 4L and first tried them on when they came in and they were a little wrinkled and looked like the dress was wearing me instead of me wearing the dress. But once it was steamed, my makeup on, and hair done, it was breathtaking!! I received tons of compliments on it. I ordered the Long and wore it with 3 1/2" heels and it was still two inches too long, so I should have ordered the Regular and just worn flats with it because you really have to try hard not to step on it. It is a little darker than the picture which makes it look even better.
At first it made me look really shapeless because I'm 34"-26.5"-36", but I got a pair of Spanx and it made tons of difference! The silk is not thin but not too heavy; it's a good feel. The only thing I didn't like was that the cascading ruffle was silk on one side and some gauze-like fabric on the other side and it sometimes didn't want to lay correctly with the silk side showing as in the picture. Also, one side of the dress on my hip was pretty loose because it looked like someone had pulled the fabric hard to zip the zipper and it strethed the fabric some. But I just twisted the dress a little and it covered it.
I wore the Heart of Glass Earrings, Chain Gang Ring, and Double Dagger Bracelet with it and everything looked stunning! After wearing this dress I am very tempted to go out and purchase it. I cannot wait for my next rental!
Note: My boobs aren't that big naturally; I wore padded sticky cups which worked out great. Also, I had to wear Spanx because the dress shows everything if you don't! The dress didn't flatter me at all until I put it on with Spanx, then I loved it!! I usually wear a size 4, but the 4 was too tight on my butt so I had to wear a size 6L.
