The dress is BEYOND fabulous and the Customer Service gals are AMAZING! LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress!
Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am 5'5 1/2", 113lbs, and typically a 0-2 depending on the designer. I was looking for a dress for an evening/formal wedding. Because of the suggested fit and length posted on the dress specs online as well as the Customer Service gal's input, I ordered the 0L, and the 2L as my backup seeing that I was planning on wearing a 4" heel.
The dresses arrived in a very timely fashion. Once I tried my go-to size 0, I realized it was a good 3" too long and it was scurrying on the floor. No bueno, BUT lo and behold!, RTR to the rescue. I called them first thing the next morning and geez-louise, talk about amazing service, taking care of you first, and making you feel that it's all going to be OK. They sent me a size 0R for next day delivery and WA-LA! It was PERFECT! It's very nicely fitted, hugs your curves (big or small -mine being small) has a beautiful neckline (I wore a padded black bra with clear straps, the cap sleeves are fab, and the hubster (who was in the wedding party and had to wear a tux) loved this dress on me.
Now, let me tell you something: I think most gals at the wedding got the "Lace Dress" memo, because there were maaaaany gals wearing lace. HOW-EVERRRRR, this little number was still able to steal the show that evening. For real. I got three "best dressed" comments (from ladies and gents), and maaaany others came to tell me how amazing this dress is. It really is.
It's comfortable, it moves with you, the design is unique and incredibly beautiful. Oh, one tiny thing: see that nude 'panel' that goes from top to bottom in the front of the dress by your little belly pooch? OK, it may kinda highlight the girly poochie, so you may find yourself sucking it in whilst walking by the masses to get your glass of wine. Just a little tip. But who cares!! You're gonna look HOT regardless!
A seriously amazing dress -so glad I picked this one-, customer care is ridiculously fab, and I can't wait for another event to rent from RTR again.
